With International Student Group
Five UBC undergraduates are expected to attend the
Christmas meeting in Winnipeg of the National Federation of
Canadian University Students, Dominion-wide spokesman for
Canada's 17 universities.
Council  elected  Monday  night  to<S>——	
delegate Grant Livingstone, AMS
President; Bob Harwood, Treasurer;

The UBC delegation will report on
findings of a survey on the employment bureau of Canadian universities.
A lengthy list of projects to be

and a national student magazine plan
are slated.
The dates for the three-day meet
have been set for December 27,28, and
29 on the campus of the University e>f
Manitoba at Winnipeg.
Cunliffe was elected by the USC
Monday noon to represent that organization on a basis of his experience
with the UBC Radio Society.
Cunliffe, together with Ernie
Perrault, played a major part in
organizing the Western Universities
Radio Federation at a convention
earlier this year Rosemary Hodgins,
USC chairman, stated.
Haggart, copy editor on The Daily
Ubyssey, will attend the meeting in the
capacity of press agent reporting for
The Daily Ubyssey, local downtown
dailies, and for Canadian University
Bob Currie, UBC delegate to an
International Student Service convention to be held simultaneously at
Calgary, is expected to join the
NFCUS delegation at Winnipeg following the close of the ISS meet.
U.S. Policy Seen
As Anti-Russian
Foreign policy of the U.S.
State Department is veering
away from peace with Russia,
Elmore Philpott, Vancouver
newspaper columnist, believes.
In an address to the Student Christian Movement, Monday noon, Mr.
Philpott said: "If you want to secure
peace don't do as the U.S| State Department does."
"Moreover", he said, "one cannot
assume that there are only two aides
to the Russian-U.S. question. There
are probably six or seven aides to it.
If it were merely a matter of stopping
aggression we could do it just as
easily as we stopped the Kaiser or
"But" he said, "you can't combat an
Ideology as easily as that. We must
point out the weakness of Communism
—the fact that a dictatorship of the
proletariat is no better than any other
kind of dictatorship."
He pointed out, however, that he
was "quite willing to see the Russians
and the Slavs carry out the Communist experiment in their sphere,
"so long as they leave us alone."

When aroused by unmistakeable chopping sounds,
curious students peered over the shoulder of one industrious colleague who worked away with single-minded purpose in the austere, book-lined Law library.
The chopper, jacknife in hand, was busily dismembering the remains of a turtle, skeletal parts of which were
spread on a large piece of wrapping-paper before him.
He was taking a Zoology course as well as Law, he told

"Scotty" Graham wed Gwynneth Ayler Saturday night.
Known to thousands of undergraduates and graduates, "Scotty"
is back on the job this morning. Tragedy was narrowly averted
at the wedding when "Scotty" remembered, forty minutes
before the proceedings that he had forgotten the flowers.
' Now quartered where the
ment of Anthropology had housed one
of its museums, the Library's cataloguing department is carrying on in
the midst of an abundant and varied
collection of primitive relics.
From one corner an ancient totem
carving stands mutely surveying the
activity of the busy stenographers. In
a glass cabinet a group of skulls sit
grinning their approval of the evident
cultural advances of the times.
Card catalogues, indexes, and flies
clutter the glass show cases in which
lies proof of the imaginative endeavor
of peoples of a long-forgotten era.
Typewriters clatter and jingle on
modern desks huddled around compartments which contain silent testimony of the gradual development of
man's learning.
The whole set-up is strictly business
as far as the staff is concerned. One
stenographer significantly eyed a collection of war clubs and promised
faithfully to throw out any intruders
who might show too much curiosity
about the place.
UBC's anthropologists hope to be
reinstated in the room when the present Library construction is completed.
"But in the meantime," one staff
member emphasized, "this place is
definitely closed to the public."
USC 'Confident*
Of Pub Policy
Undergraduate Societies Committee
has expressed "confidence" in the
editorial policy and management of
The Daily Ubyssey.
The undergraduates group, which
embraces representatives from all
faculties on the campus, adopted the
"confidence" vote Monday following
a recommenoation from member Don
Cunliffe headed a sub-committee
which last month expresed dissatisfaction with the student newspaper
and called a special seven-hour conference with its editors.
"The vote means UCS will adopt
the policy of the Publications Board,"
Cunliffe said.
Called 'Snobs'
At Ontario
Debate Reveals Low
Opinion Of Students
London, Ont., December 3—
(CUP)—University undergraduates, says the Student Christian Movement here, are nothing but "snobs."
A 14 to 10 decision following a debate  at the University  of Western
Ontario  established  the  SCM's low
opinion of their fellow students.
Lawrence Stanley, speaking lor
the affirmative, said there were three
types of snobs who came to university
"for the betterment of their social
position rather than for the acquisition of knowledge."
Social snobs, Stanley said, are those
who form fraternities "to satisfy their
social egos." Intellectual snobs "think
that because they are university students they have a superior itellect."
The third type, he went on, are
economic snobs who believe that upon
graduation they are entitled to the
highest paying jobs. Stanley said this
type seeks office employment during
the summer months because "he
is too good for manual labor."
Gerry Zink, who spoke for the
negative, protested that Stanley represented a minority in the light of a
majority and that "all classes have
She pointed to the relative insignificance of students when they compare themselves to world leaders, to
the earnest endeavours of veterans
and people who work their way
through college by manual labor.
One student said students dislike
manual labor because they have other
interests, not because they look down
on laborers.
Laval Council
Raps CBC Ban
Levis, Que., Dec. 3— (CUP—Laval
University student's council has filed
an official protest with the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation over the
CBC's refusal to sanction two French
language radio stations in Western
A telegram to Davidson Dunton,
chairman of the CBC Board of Governors, demanded that permission for
the establishment of French language
stations in Prince Albert and Edmonton be given.
The message stated that peace could
reign in Canada, east or west
"through absolute respect, not fundamental, but actual, for the rights of
human beings."
The students added that the use
of their own language was sanctioned
both by law and custom in Canada
and that its use would help to bring
English and French groups closer together by "knowledge of one another's
language and culture."

prophesied by Arthur Laing,
president of the Young Liberal
Association at Tuesday's Liberal Club meeting.
"As a matter of fact there never
was a real coalition," he said. "All
the Liberals and Conservatives ever
had in common was a mutual dislike
for the CCF. Their policies are now.,
and always have been, entirely different."
On the public utilities problem he
criticized the Coalition for not taking
over the BCER.
"The BCER is the heart of BC's
public utilities. The Government
hedged about and bought up every
other piece of junk in the province
without even considering acquisition
of the BCER."
Pointing out the "inadequacies" of
the Coalition government, Mr. Laing
termed the provincially-owned Pacific Great Eastern "a railroad which
does not even exist."
"The PGE is built of 60 pound track
which means that trains of longer
than three or four cars cannot be
carried. Of what value is this for
carrying out the great resources *f

iron out difficulties arising out of the
use of amateur musicians on the
musical series.
Ihe show has been off the, air since
the close of the 1946-47 term earlier
this year, but had been scheduled to
begin again early in 1948.
The union ruling will ban the show
from Vancouver radio stations after
7 p.m., Radio Society President Ernest
Perrault said.
Union officials demand that all radio
time after 7 pjn. be left open for
possible use by professional performers.
Study requirements of the students
will prevent the show being aired
before 6 p.m., however, Perrault said,
leaving only 6 to 7 p.m. as possible
time for the program.
The Music from Varsity series was
heard last year at 9:30 pm.
Perrault said the society was not
"fussy" about putting the show on
the air between 6 and 7 and could
not be sure that the hour would be
open to them over city stations.
Earlier, he said, one station had
offered to air the show at 9 p.m.
If 6 to 7 p.m. is unavailable for
the student program, Perrault declared, the Radio Society will attempt to
^negotiate with the union.
Other Radio Society programs heard
over city stations will not be affected
by the ruling unless music is used for
special effects.
"The policy of the union will very
definitely restrict the broadcasting of
the musical show,' Perrault said, "but
we are willing to place it between 6
and 7 p.m.
Union officials were unavailable for
comment at press time.
The Radio Society was represented
at the meeting by Perrault and Don
Cunliffe, program official for the society. Representing the union were
A. E. Jamieson, secretary manager,
and C. Hayden Williams, who is a
director of the UBC Musical Society.
CBC Airs UBC Graduates'
New 'Plotless* Radio Show
Something   new   in   radio   shows—a   "plotless"   musical

Undergraduate Societies Committee stock soared at
Council meeting Monday night following a clash between
Rosemary Hodgins, chairman, and Bob Harwood which left
the AMS Treasurer coyly shifting from one foot to the other.

"You know how it goes," says Nicol.
"It takes a whole hour to get the plot
moving, and then nobody cares how it
works out anyway."
Most of the songs originated on
the "Summer Romance" series which
Campbell wrote, and Nicol's dialogue
ties them together.
The story, according to the author,
is a typical boy-meets-girl romance
at a summer resort. Campbell has also
written additional music for background effects and bridges from one

It is only with some reluctance that the
Daily Ubyssey once again devotes editorial
space to the now all but forgotten Schuschnigg
affair. *
The day following the evening on which
the one-time chancellor of pre-war Austria
delivered his address in the Auditorium under
the auspices of the Newman Club, the Vancouver Sun printed a lead editorial attacking
the AMS for withdrawing their sponsorship
on the grounds that they were violating the
precepts of free speech.
The Daily Ubyssey replied to this attack
in the editorial "The Sun Also Sets" (November 25) which pointed out that Schuschnigg's
right to speak was never questioned—the
dispute arose over the question of who was
to sponsor him.
The Vancouver Sun — piqued that such
an insignificant voice as such be raised
against its great humanitarian services —
levelled a second editorial blast. (November
Now it is always dificult for a newspaper
to alter an affirmed policy.    It shakes the
readers' faith. With this in mind the second
editorial was much of a retraction as could
be expected.
Tactfully ignoring the fundamental question of freedom of speech, Vancouver's home
owned newspaper this time attacked the
sloppy way the matter had been handled.
We are the first to admit that Student
Council acted entirely without tact on the
The point is, however, that they had no
alternative. Campus opinion branded Schuschnigg a political speaker. The AMS is not
permitted, by constitution, to sponsor political speakers. Therefore the sponsorship was
changed from the AMS to the Newman Club.
The unfortunate aspect was that it was
done at so late a date . . . hours before the
address was scheduled.
Yes "Fiasco Is The Right Word"—as the
Sun states', but fiasco only in so far as the
social graces are concerned. Never was
Schuschnigg's right to speak in any doubt
whatever. Nor were the golden ideals of
freedom of speech.

The Children's Hour
Never one to venture outside* on foggy
nights, your old uncle B. was holed up the
other evening in the space behind the furnace
that serves him as a combined library and
den. Leafing through a pile of last week's
newspapers, he came across something that
stopped him cold.
It was a news item, datelined NEW
YORK, and only slightly marred by an impolite linotyper's belch that went BUP. It
was not this social faux pas, however, but
the news item itself that caused him to BUP
right back into his second pint of beer.
Dr. Vladimir Eliasberg, a psychiatrist,
says that one person in every 16 is crazy.
"Eight hundred thousand insane people
are in institutions" Dr. Eliasberg said, "but
8,000,000 more are on the loose wandering
the streets."
Feeding this unappetizing fact through
the twisted meat-chopper of his mind, your
uncle's first conclusion was that this statistic
was a damned lie, cooked up to frighten a
queasy population into taking expensive psychiatric treatment. And that as this unchained
lunatic horde were all Americans, it was
only to be expected.
A moment's reflection upon the habits
of Canadians of his acquaintance showed this
to be untenable.
This total of mobile maniacs should be
revised to read 800,000,000. If this figure exceeds the combined population of both countries, the difference can easily be accounted
for by including the as yet unborn, but assuredly potty progeny of a potty citizenry.
The fact of the matter is that the citizens
of both countries are all mad, but the Americans make more money at it.
His second conclusion was that Dr. Eliasberg, a nice fellow at heart, has been guilty
of mucking about with statisticians and has
himself become statistically-minded, as a result.   Nothing could be more terrible.
If he ever gets married and has a daughter, your uncle will tell her to marry anyone,
as long as it isn't a statistician.
He thinks that statisticians are gloomy-
minded fellows, given to looking at things
through the wrong end of telescopes and
complaining that thirty per cent of a doughnut is composed of a hole.
He regards statisticians as nasty-minded
urchins who go around gathering up unpleasant facts which they press into marbles
and then toss on to the dance floor of life,
where happy peasants like your uncle are
dancing carefree polkas and mazurkas. Proof
of that lies in the fact that everywhere you
put your foot down, these days, you step on
a statistic.
When statisticians talk about pneumonia
(they are always talking about pneumonia)
do they say that 99,960 people will NOT die
of pneumonia? Not they. The death rate
from pneumonia, they say, smiling thinly,
is 40 in every 100,000.
Nor will they admit that 96 percent of
all men have perfect color vision; or 999,500
soldiers out of every million who served in
leprosy areas will NOT develop leprosy in
the next twenty years. Not they. They would
rather bleed to death, first.
And when they stumble across a really
hopeful item, such as the fact that about
thirty children under the age of twelve commit suicide, every year, do they join with the
rest of us in hoping that practice will grow?
Not they. You'd think they were sorry about
Every time they see a half-full bottle,
they put their fingertips together and say
its half-empty.
Ah, well. Being an immensely practical
man, your uncle has figured out a way to
put that lunatic statistic to use, which is
more than the statisticians can do. The next
time anyone tells him he's crazy, he will
put the teller down as one of the roaming
As for the fact that one person in every
sixteen is a madman, he will use it as a basis
for estimating that 49.5 of the 793 professors,
lecturers and assistants on this campus are
raving maniacs.
This may be useful, indeed, when things
get tough.

No Satire

I begin to fear for the intellectual
standard of UBC students.
Had he troubled to use his brain
he would seen that since there was
so much to be said at the IRC conference, The Daily Ubyssey had to

It is true that the statements by
the delegates who advocated war

that those statements were made.

No Principles
Dear Sir:
There is a practice going on in
our university Library that is certainly not in keeping with the
principles of fairness. The practice to which I refer is that of
leaving books or articles of clothing to keep others away from an
unused seat while the offender
slips out to attend a lecture or
two. Yes, I agree it is extremely
difficult to get a seat at times and
I'm sure it must be very pleasant
to be able to amble leisurely over
to the Library and slide into a
seat that has been unoccupied for.
an hour or two. If it is of any
interest to that selfish fninority
who feel it their privilege to hog
the seats, I hope that the majority
of them measure up to the required coefficient of elasticity and
bounce at Christmas. I for one
would miss them—gladly.

Popular Request Demands
Airborne Symphony Encore
Popular request has necessitated a repeat performance cf
the Airborne Symphony which the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra presented Sunday. —
Featuring a IOC-voice UBC chorus
the contemporary American work
will be presented at the "Pops" concert at Exhibition Gardens tonight
at 8:30 p.m.
As it was presented Sunday, Marc
Blitzstein's composition gripped the
audience completely. Whether or not
it was first rate music was something
that could not be decided by one
hearing. At times sounds which can
only be described as noise semed to
overwhelm both the audience and the
Jacques Singer handled the orchestra, chorus, two soloists and narrator
extremely well in the Canadian
premiere of the young composer's
Interest was held at high pitch all
the way through the score and the
UBC chorus gave a very good account
of itself considering that it had only
two weeks in which to rehearse for
the event.
Derek MacDermont, baritone, and
Karl Norman, baritone, gave excellent
solo renditions. Juan Root taking the
part filled by Orson Welles in the
only other performance of the score
in New York in 1946, was superb as
the narrator.
The Airborne is divided into three
movements, describing in turn the
development of flight by the Wright
"brothers, the war, and the open sky.
This last is supposed to represent the
questioning note which is implicit in
today's thinking but it could indeed
be said that the ending is weak rather
than questioning.
The fact that most audiences are
rather literal minded will probably
slow acceptance of this work, which
is, to say the least, unconventional.
Jacques Singer deserves a great
deal of credit for his courage in
bringing something new to Vancouver symphony goers. Mr. Singer's
presence heFe seems to have wrought
a complete change from the mediocrity which characterized this city's
musical scene in the past.—J. W.

Standing well back from the road, with trees and shrubbery
hiding its tudor-gothic lines and friendly old English atmosphere, is one of UBC's lesser known institutions, the Anglican
Theological College.

KEEPER OF BOOKS is registrar and librarian Reverend D.
P. Watney, shown in nis Anglican College study. He supervises
the care and distribution of the College's 8,000 theological
volumes to the 26 ministerial aspirants.
It is here that the Church of Eng
land trains its men to serve the Anglican parishes of British Columbia, in
particular and often the parishes of
other Canadian provinces and the
United States.
In charge of this important work is
Reverend Kenneth E. Taylor, principal of the College since he came here
from the University of Western Ontario in September. At Western he
was professor of church history and
dean of residence at Huron Theological College.
He served with the army five and
a half years and was principal pro-
testant chaplain of the First Canadian
Army during campaigns in Northwest Europe. His outstanding work
won for him the OBE.
A Rhodes Scholar, he attended the
Honor School of Modern History at
Oxford. Later, he studied at the
General Theological Seminary in New
York city.
Asked if he liked Western Canada
he replied, "We're very happy here,
and the cooperation received from all
has been marvellous." He has a son
and daughter at the university—Allen,
in 3rd year modern languages, and
Elspeth, first year pre-med. Another
son, Kenneth, is a student at St.
George's School.
The energetic, friendly principal had
nothing but praise for his 26 students.
"They are a first rate group of men",
he said, "and splendid material to
work  with."
There are 31 resident students in
the college, 26 of whom are theologs.
Fourteen of these men are veterans,
and eight are married. The college
boasts one of the better theological
libraries in Canada, having over 8,000
catalogued theological .books.
Responsible for the large library is
registrar and librarian, the Rev. D. P.
Watney, a former graduate of UBC.
He served with the Navy during the
war in the North Atlantic Command.
With the college for some time, he
told The Daily Ubyssey that the
college had moved to its present 5-
acre site in October, 1827, and since
that time there have been 150 graduates.
The students have a rigorous routine to follow, Morning chapel is at
7:10, followed by breakfast and classes.
After dinner lectures continue until
4:30. Evening chapel is at 5:00.
The men have their own literary
and athletic association and enter
into intramural and intercollegiate

from the sidelines . ..
... by Dick Blockberger
In spite of the fact that they were playing against some
high-priced opposition over the weekend, UBC's basketballing
Thunderbirds didn't take a back seat to anybody. The University of Oregon quintet is rated as one of the best in the Coast
League, but the 'Birds, who are entered in a conference cpn-
sidered at least three notchs below that of the Oregonians, made
the Webfoot squad work, and work hard for their points. The
fine showing the team put up in the weekend tilt reflects only
credit on them and their coach.
Oregon Grid Talent
It is a cinch that if the Oregon football coach ever runs out
of gridiron talent, he can use some members of the Ducks' hoop
squad who were putting on a lovely display of blocking at
Saturday's contest. To say the American squad was rough
would be putting it mildly. As a matter of fact, some fans in
attendance at the game weren't putting it very mildly in their
comments. Could be the Webfeet need a little polish — and
not on their toenails, either.
All of which leads up to the prediction of the week. In our
estimation, the 'Birds look good enough to take the PNW Conference hands down. Any squad which has put on the preseason show the Blue and Gold quintet has, certainly should be
slated to cop the laurels in a grand and glorious fashion. The
'Birds might not repeat the efforts of the whiz-kids of '45-46,
but they will certainly leave their mark on the league.
UBC's Gym Club put on a sparkling half-time show ut
Saturday's hoop contest. The students worked out on their
brand-new trampoline, and although not letter-perfect as yet,
show signs of becoming a first-rate club on the apparatus ... We
note that Herb Capozzi has been named for the All-Conference
grid team, while Doug Reid was selected for the second string
and Bob Murphy given honorable mention. Anyone who has
seen these boys play will certainly know why they were selected
for these honors. Even Mr. McConnell will have to admit that
they are stellar players regardless of the code they play.
Varsity and UBC soccer aggregations, running true to form,
scored decisive wins over the weekend. In the first division,
Varsity gained sweet revenge for their defeat at the hands of
the Empire Hotel squad two weeks ago as they turned back the
Hotelmen 3-2 Saturday at the Powell Street grounds.
Inside-left Dave Thompson opened
the scoring against Empire Hotel
shortly alter the opposition's custodian had made a beautiful save on Jack
Cowan's penalty shot. Before the half
ended, the Hotelmen banged in a goal
of their own to even the count. Midway through the second period, a
goal by Howie Oborne put Varsity
on top once more, and centre-forward
Jock Elliot's counter five minutes
later put the Blue and Gold well
ahead. Empire Hotel managed to slip
In another goal just before the final

Mainstays of the students' attack
were halfbacks Hugh Ross, Gus Mc-
Sween and Arman Temoin who constantly bombarded the enemy goalmouth with accurate lobs.

of right-half Doug Hamilton.

SEATTLE DEFENDERS — These five hoop stalwarts of Seattle College last year snapped a
Thunderbird eight-game winning streak when they split a two-game series with the local squad.
UBC travels to Seattle this weekend to meet the Chieftains in a return series.
Experience Goined
By Lourie Dyer
Secrfffe Next For Birdmen
After Torrid Oregon Card
The day when UBC plays
basketball in the Coast League
may not have drawn any closer
over the weekend when the
'Birdmen were tamed by the
Oregon Webfoots in both ends
of their twin bill with the
powerful Coast Conference aggregation. But the 62-33 and
65-51 scores don't tell the
whole story, for the Blue and
Gold squad put up plenty of
class in their maple antics with
the visiting hoopsters.
The 'Birds will be using some of
the experience gained in the Oregon
series when they travel to Seattle
this weekend where they will meet
the potent Seattle College quintet
in a two game card to be played
in the new gymnasium there.
The series with Oregon found the
visitors playing their first ball of the
season. According to the Webfoot
coach, "Honest John" Warren, the
team still lacks some of the polish
that they have to have in their own
This, combined with the fact that
both teams just decided to rough it
up, all added up to a scrappy, close
checking series which kept the
whistle-tooters   busy   in   both   tilts.
For the most part, the local lads
were simply outplayed by the fast-
breaking Oregon machine. The height
of the Webfoots gave them most of
the rebounds at both ends of the
floor and the same height was used
to tip in any shots that were erring
slightly from the straight and nai-
Checking was particularly close
around the key. In the Saturday
affair, 35 of the Blue and Gold points
came from the foul strip as they
were   awarded   50   free   tosses.     Tlie
Oregon  quintet sank  23  out  of  34
free shots allowed.
McGeer, Kermode, Bell and Haas
were high scorers for the home squad
but the whole team hit the score
sheet in the Saturday contest. For
the visitors, the work of Roger Wiley,
Stan Williamson, Reedy Berg and
Bob Don stood out. Wiley was "best
man" with a two game total of 25
markers and did a fine job in holding
his team together.

Chiefs Lose
Hoop Tilt
"Everything happens to us"
was the complaint of the North
Van Staceys, Saturday night,
when after taking a 40-36 win
from the UBC Chiefs, they
found the Whittlemen were
protesting the contest.
It was Staceys first win of
the current Senior A season
and a bitter disappointment to
find it contested.
The root of the Chieftains complaint
stemmed from the fact that tlie approved stopclock in the North Van
gym was not working so that the
tilt was not timed properly, especially
during the crucial last three minutes.
Chiefs got away to an early lead in
the first quarter but the Shoemen,
led by Gordie Lynn were close on
their heels so that at the half time
breather the Indians held only a
slim 21-20 margin.
It was during the third frame that
the winless Staceys poured on the
heat and the erratic students were
unable to stem the tide.
With high scorer Freddie Bossons
unable to sink a single field shot all
evening, Chiefs had trouble matching
the unconscious tosses of the North
Vanners and at the end of the tilt
were on the short end of a 40-38 count.
Then the kick came. Feeling that
his charge had been shortchanged by
the timer, particularly during the
last quarter, UBC coach Doug Whittle
decided   to   file   an   official   protest.
The outcome of the complaint should
be announced near the end of the
week by Senior A league officials.
Heading the Chief's hot and cold
shooting was guard Bob Boyes with
8 counters as once again every member of the team hit the scoring
column. Lynn, wth 18 points, was
high man for Staceys.
Varstty trampled over the Ex-Kits
eleven by a 6-2 score. Ann Turner,
captain of this year's squad, rapped
in three of the Blue and Gold counters, while Nora McDermitt, Peggy
B'owe, and Ann Munroe scored the
remainder. Between the pipes, Jo
Spicer handed in a stellar performance for the Varsity entry.
