CCF Leader
On Party Policy
In spite of the popular pep meet,
over 300 students packed Arts 100 at
noon yesterday to hear an address
by Harold Winch, provincial CCF
Winch emphasized that absolute
socialism could not be established in
any province until the CCF controlled the federal parliament, but that a
start could be made.
Party policy was said to favour
stopping the alienation of natural
resources, taking over basic industries
which are draining the province of
money, establishing of a provincial
housing authority and car insurance
Health insurance and research and
a new labour code were described as
essential and the speaker also recommended the appropriation of the province's breweries.
Mr. Winch said that his party aimed
at happiness through security.

Of USC Topic
At AMS Meet
Plan To Make
Juniors Eligible
One of the chief topics to be
discussed at tomorrow's general
AMS meeting in the Armories
will be a resolution to make a
junior as well as a senior eligible for chairmanship of the
Undergraduate Societies Committee.
The resolution was passed by Student Council on the recommendation
of the USC and is subject to ratification at this meeting.
"This resolution in no sense precludes a senior from runnning for
this office, but it opens the field to
juniors as well," said Grant Livingstone Wednesday. The President also
stated that it had been proposed,
owing to the importance of the position, that elections to it be called
at the same time as those for the
President and Treasurer of the AMS.
Arrangements have been made for
the cancellation of all 11:30 lectures
to facilitate a maximum attendance
at this meeting.
1. The reading of the minutes of the
last meeting.
2. The amendment of Article 18,
Section 2 of the AMS code to permit
inter University affiliation of political clubs.
3. The amendment of Article 3,
Section 2 Subsection (h) to permit
a junior as well as a senior to run
for USC Chairmanship.
4. The report of the Chairman of
the ISS committee (Bob Currie) on
the recent conference and activities
of ISS and its plans for this year.
5. Discussion on this report.
6. The report of the chairman of
the NFCUS committee on the recent
NFCUS conference.
7. Discussion on this report.
8. The plebescite on IUS affiliation,
including an explanation of the issue
by Mr. Livingstone.

Snack Bar Theft
Estimated at $100
Aluminum refrigerator trays valued
at $100 have been stolen from the
Brock Hall south basement.
Discovery of t'he theft of 29 trays
was discovered on completion of the
new refrigeration unit in the renno-
vated kitchen of the Brock Hall
Snack Bar and Dining Room.
Apart from the expense, the inconvenience caused the kitchen staff
is considerable, Miss McFarlane, head
dietician informed The Daily Ubyssey.
University authorities are investigating the theft.
Lack of Funds Stumbling Block
To Taproom at Nearby Tearoom
Members of the UBC Branch of the Canadian Legion may
acquire the Dolphins Tearoom situated about a half mile from
the University, for a wet canteen.
However  the Vets are faced witb^
difficulties.    At present they  do not,
have   the  capital  to  finance  such   a
venture, also there is the problem of
obtaining a license to run the establishment.
Nevertheless the majority of members feel that a canteen or some other
sort of entertainment is vitally necessary to hold the Legion together.
At present the Legion has a paid
up membership of only 700, out of a
total of over 2500 active members.
The legion believes that if this plan
is brought into effect the ranks will
swell and the organization will develop into a little more than a bureau to
aid needy vets.
The question of increases for Veterans was brought up at a legion
meeting Tuesday night and a committee has sent a wire to Hon., M. F.
Greeg, minister of veterans affairs,
requesting "that he give consideration
to a responsible petition from The
National Council of Student Veterans
for a cost-of-living-bonus based on
government statistics."
It was stressed that to obtain this
bonus examples of extreme hardship
had to be presented to back up their
requests. Members were also urged
to write to their MP's and local newspaper stating their cases.
Faculty Members need not feel that
they are intruding by coming to
Legion meetings. In fact they are
recommended very strongly to attend
and express their views. Letters will
be sent out to all faculty members
who are vets to be followed by
personal interviews.
A note was made that it would be
a good idea for all vets to subscribe
the local paper the Legionaire in order
to keep in contact with all current
servicemens   affairs   on   the   campus.
Steinberg Conducts
Symphony on Friday
Noted artist, Albert Steinberg will
conduct the Vancouver Symphony
Orchestra Friday, at 3:30 in the Armoury.
The concert is the third in a series
of five to be presented on the campus
this year.
The program will feature such interesting and well-known classics as
William's "Overture to the Wasp,"
Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nacht Musik,"
German's 'Henry VIII Dances," Chab-
rier's 'Espana Rhapsody," and the
feature work, Mendelssohn's Italian
"Fourth Symphony."
At t'he request of tne sponsors, the
Special Events Committee, Mr. Steinberg has agreed to say a few words
before each selection to take the
place   of  program   notes.
Admission will be 25 cents.

As the general meeting of the Society
looms Friday noon, student interest is running high on the subject of NFCUS affiliation
with the International Union of Students, the
most contentious matter on the agenda of the
special meet.
In an editorial in the University of
Toronto "Varsity" several siginificant points
in regard to the world union are cleared up.
We quote "What is IUS? As the name expresses, it is intended to be a body representative of the students of the world. At the
moment the western hemisphere is practically
unrepresented. Neither Canada nor the United
States has joined. The more idealistic person
will tell you that IUS, by providing a meeting
ground for students of all nations, will help to
further international understanding.
"In November 1945, the World Youth
Council called a World Youth Conference
in London. Out of this conference were born
two children—the World Federation of Democratic Youth and the International Preparatory Committee which in turn engendered
the IUS in Prague in the summer of 1946.
A World Student Congress, having representatives of major student groups from most
of the world, approved the idea of the IUS
which the Preparatory Committee had formed.
"On it are represented national student
unions where such exist; otherwise other
student bodies (such as NCSV or SCM in
Canada) can send delegates. It is, in fact, an
extension of the WFDY and with sympathetic
ties to it.
"The IUS has been and will be under fire
as a Communist-dominated organization.
NFCUS, recognizing that IUS, at the moment,
was acting in the Communist interest, gave
indication that if there is affiliation, it would
attempt to broaden its field of interest."
As the Toronto editor points out IUS is
communist dominated; of thus we have no
doubt. A brief survey of their publication
"World Student News" would bear out this
fact. Furthermore a report made on the 1946
Prague conclave by a party of US students
who purport to be impartial termed the body
very highly communist and unlikely to ever
be otherwise.
What the students of UBC must decide
Friday is whether or not the fact of IUS's
political tendencies will preclude the success
of an affiliation. Can we gain by the affiliation even though IUS is communist-dominated ... we believe they shall be for a long
time to come?
On The Wagon
The Dutchmen
Named It
There's a limit to
everything. The time
has come for action.
Down with custom. The
blood of the nation's youth is roused by the
ham-stringing traditions of their fathers. And
the traditions are beaten into them from childhood so they become (more or less) natural.
The fault lies with the system. Again and
again, the fault lies with the system. It is
time for a change.
And that change is coming.
There is an annual Varsity function which
is usually held once a year. It is called the
"Mardi Gras." It is an organized orgy of the
upper middle classes of the student body.
It is complete with a sexed-up floor-show.
It is formal. It is held off the campus. It is
expensive.   It is advertised as "dutch."
Laugh here. A friend of ours called
Joseph Mulehide found the necessary shekels
last year. He went to the Mardi Gras, He
got drunk. He had one hell of a good time.
And it cost him exactly twenty-four dollars
and thirty-seven cents. But then he didn't
go dutch.
This year he got to thinking it over. It
was a cinch he didn't have twenty-four dollars
and thirty-seven cents to blow on one evening
of sin. Then he noticed a very small little
phrase on the bottom of one of the committee's
very large signs. It said, and we quote:
'Dutch treat."
sneaking up on the Gamma Phoo sorority table
in the Caf, sniffing around for mink coats
before popping the question. But he did it.
Good man, that Joseph Mulehide,
"Uh, you, will you go to the Mardi Gras
with me, huh?"
"Why, shore, Joseph."
"There's one little thing, babe. Yat got
da price of yer ticket?"
"Yer ticket. Da sign says this here thing's
dutch. See? You pays half, I pays half."
Needless to say, Joseph Mulehide didn't
get the date. Nor any of the three dozen-odd
others he tried.
Hepped-Up  Facts,
Sexy Figures
Mulehide Rides
Once More
"Aha," thought Joseph    Mulehide.      "This
year I can still swing it.
I'll find a woman who is
not only my kind of woman, yuk yuk, but
one who'll go dutch to boot." Shortly afterwards, Joseph Mulehide went mad.
It all started this way. Joseph Mulehide
sat down with a pencil and paper (he was
second year engineering, by the way) and
started to figure. Admission—last year, three
bucks each; this year, three bucks period.
Saving of three bucks.
Alas, poor Joseph Mulehide. His total
budget came to twenty-one dollars and thirty-
seven cents. That's opposed to his budget for
the previous year of twenty-four dollars and
thirty-seven cents.
But the rough road was not yet completely rid. Uh-uh. He had still to find the woman
wit© would go dutch. He was seen one day
With Joseph Mule-
It i d e safely tucked
away in his padded
cell and no clubs nearby, let us examine this whole question a
little more closely. Dutch treat is applied to
many things in an effort to convince people
(mostly the male people) that it won't cost
them much to go.
That's a rotten lie, Ever think of corsages,
taxi fare, liquor (shh!), cigarettes, and so on?
Ever think of them? Ever hear of the total
cost of an evening being split 50-50? Neither
have we.
But the AMS pass is doing its bit. It is
really a great help. On certain nights at
certain theatres it gets you in for half-price.
The odd student has even been seen standing
on one foot in front of a ticket office stuttering and stammering to the gal-friend that he'd
like to borrow her AMS pass. In fact, he
hints, they can't possibly get in unless she
uses her AMS pass. But usually, more's
the pity, the gal's cold stare and the ticket-
seller's silent opinions force the poor boy into
blushing violently and throwing thrift to the
winds. They go in without benefit of either
AMS pass, so there. He can walk home
It looks as though the men will always
pay. After all, we can't ALL belong to the
COTC and spend our summers in Calgary,
where they don't only supply the women and
the entertainment but they also throw in a
car for the night.
Until we can all summer in Calgary,
hand me my club. The system has got to
change . Down with same. Hallo, camarade.

Brave New World
Dear Sir:
Before the War I read a book
by Aldous Huxley entitled "Tlie
Brave New World." It depicted a
future world in which it was evil
to produce babies by the process
of nature. They must be manufactured in the laboratory, according to prescribed formulae. After
birth, each baby was "conditioned"
for the purpose it was to fulfill
and "educated" in the appropriate
opinions required in society.
For example, babies intended
to be future space-ship mechanics
were whirled through the air for
so many hours each day. So that
they eventually ceased to be happy
in an upright position. For so
many hours each night loudspeakers repeated certain ideas
over and over again in the dormitories where the babies slept.
The book was a clever and
amusing satire—but I remember
that it left me with a slight feeling of nausea and alarm.
Ernest E. Winch, CCF, MLA for
Burnaby, addressing the Socialist
Forum Wednesday on "Delinquency" was reported by the Daily
Ubyssey to have said that his
policy to combat delinquency included eugenics and sterilization.
He claimed that the major problem was to instill social concepts
in the minds of individuals, as had
been done in Germany, Italy,
Japan and the USSR. According
to him, the only way to do this is
through Socialism.
With the latter statement, I
agree. I find these words, spoken
in earnest by Winch, neither clever nor amusing; and my nausea
and alarm, two years after the
war has ended, is no longer slight.
David Tupper.
Co-Opera tion
Dear Sir:
Our National Federation has
been wise in its move toward affiliation with the IUS. The advantages of such a union will be
many. Not the least of these will
be the opportunity for many of our
potential legislators to meet in
person the youth and future
leaders of  other  countries.
At this crucial period every
avenue toward international understanding must be paved. However understanding will not be
fostered by such indiscretions as
the two year trial clause.
This adult equivalent, in subtlety and in courtesy, of "We'll play
in your yard - if you clean up
the dirty dump" will achieve nothing but ill will and suspicion.
Let our approach to the IUS
be one of co-operation, not of

member i/c Education stated today
that a list of books available from
Provincial Command has been posted
in the Legion Office. These books
are available on a monthly basis on
loan, and may be ordered at the desk.
Lack of attendance has forced the
cancellation of most of the group

still tutors available for individual
instruction in a great variety of subjects. Those interested are asked to
apply at the Legion office.
There will be a dance at the Alma
Academy from 9 till 1 o'clock on
Wednesday, February 18th. Admission
will be by ticket only, $1.00 per person including refreshments.
Publicity Splash
Dear Sir:
It is unfortunate if the recent
splash of publicity on Branch 72
affairs has driven the minds of
student veterans away from Ihe
important question of increased
Possibly a "red-scare" is a more
interesting object of attention: hut
it surely is not as gainful as support for the NCSV resolution favouring the addition of a cost of

Certain students may strenuously
object to the thought of equalizing
the purchasing power of our
monthly cheques with the purchasing power of those same cheques
in 1944, but the students having difficulty saving five hundred dollars
per summer will probably regard
a cost of living bonus as reasonable.

Delinquency Rampant
In Brock Hall Cellars
Juvenile delinquency is running rampant in the cellars of
Brock Hall.   And all because of a mother who takes her career
The guilty parent is "Queenie", a+
coal-black mouser who makes her
home in any number of mysterious
holes in the depths of Brock Hall.
The delinquent juveniles whose home
life is suffering from their mother's
occupation are an indefinite number
of cats of questionable origin.
Queenie and family were imported
from Fort Camp last year to meet the
rising threat of mice in the student
building. Both sides seem to be holding their own, for Queenie is still
kept busy diving for mice under
lounge chesterfields,
Queenie's offspring are a little more
reluctant   to   make   their   presence
known in public than is their worldly-wise mother. Only when they
make their appearance in the furnace room around mealtimes can they
be spotted. And even their best friend
the janitor cannot get near enough
to pick them up.
Queenie, meanwhile, preserves her
modesty of expression and placidly,
continues diving for mice. Her merits
as a mouser are highly lauded by
Tom Grantham, head janitor of
Brock Hall, who asserts that she is
also useful in chasing out dogs.

twice a week, thus doubling the narcotic dose. (In

Francis David "Luke" Moyls has come a long way since he
received the portly mantle of Sports Editor of the Ubyssey from
Chuck Claridge in 1944. When he was formally invested with
regal power at a quiet ceremony in the celibate cell of the
Editor-in-Chief on that il-fated day, and was heard to whisper
between wretching sobs, as once did Disraeli: "Now, at last, I've
reached the top of the greasy pole," — the rest of us thought
we had satisfied his lust for pow4er forever.
Most mere mortals would have considered receiving the
gavel that governs page 4 of the Daily Ubyssey (then a puny,
thrice-weekly effort) to be the absolute pinnacle of earthly
success. But not Luke! His ambition was not stated. For,
when the gay blade of "The Gospel" graduated (the sports staff
still remembers the depression which followed the campaigning
to "buy the Chief out of college"), the Administration
announced with bated breath that the newly-created office of
Graduate Manager of Athletics had been awarded to—yes,
Luke And The Colored Ghosts
When this reporter filed into the hovel on the south side
of the gym (which is fondly labelled the "Office of the Graduate
Manager") to yap his respects to an ex-Pubster who made good,
when he congratulated Luke on the occasion of his second inauguration, little did he realize that the harmless creature behind the desk was silently scheming for even more lucrative
gain. But indeed he was. Your reporter became aware of this
horrible state of affairs last Monday morning when he was
ushered into Luke's office and espied him emersed in reams of
publicity releases. It was then that the secret came out. As a
custodian of the press, this humble scribe feels it is his most
sacred duty to inform the student body that Luke Moyls is now
the booking agent in British Columbia for the Sioux City Colored
Sepio Wizords Of The Mo pies
It appears that the Colored Ghosts are one of the top basketball teams on the continent, a negro outfit hailing from Sue's
City, Iowa, and are handled by Henry and Marty Fisher, veteran
sports promoters of the midwest. Luke is bringing this team
to town to play the Varsity Thunderbirds at the Gym on February 22 (a tentative date) as a noon hour feature. Friend Moyls
seems to be hitting the jackpot; at any rate that's what this
corner gathered after reading a missive from brothers Fisher in
which it was stated that the tour of the Ghosts in B.C. should be
"mutually remunerative." Moyls will be cutting up a lemon soon,
and hence the reason for this column; this corner expects a slice.
They Specialize In Clowning
Those of us who sat in on the exhibition of casaba wixardy
and court magic displayed by the Harlem Globe-Trotters two
years ago in that classic tilt with the 'Birds, should eagerly anticipate the meeting between Oz's quintette and the dusky melon-
men from the Sioux. The specialty of this club, which has lost
only 94 games jn 14 years of touring all parts of the continent
and playing an odd 130 a year, is its inimitable brand of court
clowning. In this vein, if reports are correct, their gags on the
basketball floor outshine even the sparkling performances put
on by Abe Saperstein's Trotters, who, incidentally won't show
their wares in Vancouver this season.
Fuzzy Could Play Ball
If your reporter's memory serves him right, it was the one
and only Fuzzy Evans who put the Ghosts on the map back in
1932. Fuzzy was one of the greatest ball-handlers and dribblers
of all time. The diminiutive 5'8" forward used to stage a nightly
performance of the marathon dribble, in which he would hip his
way up and down the court for about three minutes with nary
an opponent being able to snatch the ball away from him. Fuzzy
and "Suitcase" Simmons, a clever pivotman of the "Goose"
Tatum variety, formed the greatest combination in basketball
Current star of the team is Captain Jimmy Dilworth, a 652"
centre and an accepted master of the feint and pivot. He is a
ball handler of exceptional ability, and can dribble the ball with
perfect control even behind his back.
The Pony Express
A lot speedier club that the Globe Trotters, the Ghosts owe
much of their razzle-dazzle type of ball to the two midgets of
the game, the Buckner brothers, Marland and Conrad, who stand
only 5'4" and 5'3V2" respectively. Terrific set-shot artists and
pranksters deluxe, these two mighty mites of the maples combine
amazing speed with delicate and precise ball-handling. The
Ghosts who, until this season specialized in the eastern deliberate
style of attack, now find themselves playing western or fire-
wagon basketball, in spite of anything the rest of the team can
do, when the Buckners are in the lineup.
So, it sounds as if the 'Birds will have their hands full when
they tangle with this rendition of dusk basketballers at the gym
next month. Keep the tilt in mind - it promises to be a lulu.
And now, Luke, let's get back to business.
English Rugger Squads

Thursday, January 22, 1948
With the inauguration of the Radsoc's daily noon hour
broadcasts, the URS executives have been hard pressed in their
search for talent. So much so in fact that a ten minute program
on the 12:30 circuit has been leased to Chick Turner, former
Sports Editor of The Daily Ubyssey.
Entitled "Chick's Corner" the fea- i-
ture combines the reminiscences of
the Ubyssey columnist on past sports
events and summaries of the latest
athletic news of the campus.
The Radsoc could have done a lot
worse in their choice of the sports
announcer, according to athletic dignitaries of the Campus. Almost from
the time he began to walk Turner
has been involved with one sport or
another. Running, however, has always been his big love. At the moment he holds three track championships, the 220 Canadian Senior Championship, and the 100 and 220 Junior
Canadian Championships. In addition
to these achievements, he was a member of the UBC track team which
won its first PNWC title last May 24.
"Chick's Corner" can be heard on
Mondays at 12:30 p.m., originating

fifteen and Vancouver Meralomas. A
rugged battle is expected after the
13-0 victory of the UBC-ites last
Thunderbird game time is 2 PM,
while the UBC fracas will get under
way around 3 PM.
Three other Blue and Gold squads
are scheduled to play on the weekend.
In the second division, Varsity Sophs
meet Engineers at Douglas Park, and
the still fresh Phys Ed fifteen meets
and Ex-Britannia third division team
at the same park. Game times are
2 PM.

Jokers Defeat Betas
In Water Polo Tilt
Led by Jimmy Hawthorne and Dick
Ellis, the Jokers edged a hard-fighting
Beta Theta Pi sextette 3-2 in a close
water polo match on Monday night

Two quick goals by the clipsey-
doodle line of Brodie, Hawthorne and
Ellis put the Jokers in a lead they
never relinquished. Although the
Betas fought to overcome their early
deficit, they were not quite able to
catch up to the volatile Joker squad.
