CLU 'Uncovers' Downtown Race Bars
"A serious amount" of discrimination in
Vancouver against drinking by mixed couples
ln beer parlours has been uncovered by the
new Civil Liberties Union Research Committee.
Information in the first press release of the
new committee given to the Ubyssey yesterday '
Indicated that five pubs in a sample of 29
refused to serve couples made up of a negro
male and Caucasian female.
Waiters in all five stated that refusing service to negroes or mixed couples was the policy
of the hotel. In three others the couples experienced slow service.
Five test groups composed of a coloured
man and white female were sent out into five
areas Of Vancouver. Each was followed in three
minutes, by an all-white "control" group. In
caaes in which the control group was served a
substantial length of time before the mixed
couple, slow service was concluded.
Sponsored by the CLU an analysis of the
data collected will be made for the general
student body by a representative of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, Vancouver branch
of the CLU, in Arts 100, Thursday, November
Groups were sent into different areas of
the city and on the basis of the amount of discrimination each met critical areas were discovered.
It was ascertained that the "best" hotels, in
the Georgia and Howe street hotel district do
not discriminate. Neither do those considered
the "worst" hotels.
Policy of serving only whites was announced
in the middle class hotels catering mostly to
permanent Vancouverites. Three hotels, within
a block and one-half block of each other on
Main street, refused service to a mixed couple.
Project was run off Tuesday night, November 16. Participators included two downtown
ethnic associates and UBC' students. Over 28
were involved in the survey. Organization of
the project was made by Freda Messerschmitt
and Daryl Anderson of the CLU.
Also concluded from the survey by the committee was the success letters to managers of
discriminating pubs can have. A similar, but
smaller, survey run by the Vancouver branch
of the Brotherhood of Sleeping car Porters four
years ago and the existence of discriminatory
practices in four hotels parlours affirmed.
Letters from the Brotherhood and Vancouver's Trades and Labour Council were sent to
the managers. No discriminatory practices were
found in the CLU's check survey in any ot these
Letters sent reminded managers that their
hotels were located lir an area inhabited by
many ethnic members and that cheques Were
cashed in the hotels by non-whites.
It is false economy, the letters claimed,
stating that the best hotels, the Vancover, Georgia and Devonshire for example, do not discriminate.
Survey was the first in a proposed series to
be run by the Civil Liberties Research Committee. Hopes are to discover the extent and
nature of job discrimination in later survey.

A Ubyssey editorial which labeled the proposed building
of another swimming pool on campus as "completely ridiculous and actually stupid" came under fire from Dr. Gordon

of not taking the trouble "to

Dr. Shrum, chairman of the

He also crtlcized the editorial
for stating a crack in the BEG

gallons to seep away daily."
"So far as is known there is
no crack in the pool." Dr. Shrum
Another point of difference
lay in the question of whether

Art Gallery
To Feature
Opening to day in the University Art Gallery (library basement) is an exhibition of 59 large
color reproductions of modern
art from 1860 to the present day.
The exhibition enables the
student to trace the development
of modern painting from its origins in Impressionism to the
complete abstractions of today.
Many artists included in the
Guggenheim show presently
featured in Vancouver Art Gallery are represented.
The exhibition, part of a new
collection of outstanding color
prints acquired by the Fine Arts
Committee, have never been exhibited before.

Because Dean Andrew has consistently refured to, dispel
it, the public and particularly those concerned with academic freedom at the university, must still remain in some
degree of doubt as to whether UBC will hire a professor

may not be true—he has yet to provide proof that communists ar*. in fact bgwred from employment at UBC— but this

Dean Andrew's statement that he has "no desire to give

Since when does a university refuge to discuss in the
press an issue of direct concern to the public because of
the political creed of an individual? Is this in the line with
the tvoWs sentiments e*p*essed ft UBC during the Columbia Bicentennial, with i,ts slogan, "Man's right to knowledge
and the fret use thereof?'*
We aalfi Dean Andrew to, forget abpu* tfce communists, toy

in this respect.

Local   Boys
Doug Burns, President of the National Federation of
Canadian University Students, spent a good part of last week
qcjnvipcing campus activists that UBC should remain in the
His arguments were good. He described the many services NFCUS provides for Canadian Universities. This he
did b\ an attempt to justify the* SO cent membership fee.
However,   Mr. Burns   failed   to   even mention,  until
prompted, the one thing that will justify the rather stiif fee.
, That) is, NFCUS' obligation to function as an organizer
around student grievances and problems.
It is when the national executive of NFCUS along with
th,e local committees recognizes this duty that Canada's
student body will recognize NFCUS,
The services NFCUS provides Canada's universities in
the form of scholarships, exchanges and tours are only fully
appreciated by the particular students involved—which are
To simulate mass interest and participation NFCUS
qu^st provide services for the majority. This can be done by
initiating national campaigns around student needs. The proposed national scholarship campaign organized by Toronto
University's NFCUS committee is a welcome thing.
I^ut more than this UBC, belonging to a notoriously
"sectional" province, is impressed more by local activity.
Jim Craig, local NFCUS committee head, should recognize this phenomenon.
Mr. Craig's interest and aotivity, on behalf of his committee, in local student problems would go a long way towards putting his organization on the map at UBC.
How about housing, Mr. Craig?
A   Waste   of   Time
Like most of our 15,000' fellow students, we've just finished another round of listening to lectures, taking and studying detailed nates, then spewing the information into blue-
books. In two years we expect to have promptly forgotten
most of it. Nevertheless, our grades—the permanent and
only record of our academic achievement—will reflect this
dutiful and temporary absorption.
And we wonder if the emphasis placed on the lecture
system by our brand of education is really compatible with
the advances in printing and bookbinding that have occurred
over the last few hundred years.
We understand the lecture system worked beautifully in
the Middle Ages, when students had to write their own
books from information supplied by great teachers. But
today, practically everything thaf can be supplied in lecture
form is supplied in book form just as impersonally and with
fewer  inefficient  throat-clearings  and sneezes.
Personally, we think lectures that aren't in the form of
informative talks to small groups who can talk back when
the urge or curiosity arouses them are pretty much a waste
of time and notebooks. And we wonder if the thriving business done by certain companies that publish and sell lecture
notes isn't due as much to the realization of this sa to academic laziness. _The Californian

Athletes are known for their
postrgame excuses, but UBC
students are considerably
shrewder. They prepare their
excuses in advance.
To hear most students, UBC
bas been an academic wasteland all term. Lecture rooms
hive been deserted Students
have been making whoopee instead of studying determinedly
each night.
"Haven't done a damn thing,"
is the stock statement made to
anyone who will listen. Lectures? "Hardly any," is the report. "In two o' my courses I
didn't even attend first day."
As far as home studies are
concerned, you'll be told with a
leer that there were "other
things to do."
All this is related with an
elaborate air of embarrassment.
He does his utmost to force
himself to flush guiltily. You
are to believe he knows he has
done wrong, but—there it is,
and he can't help it.
If his statement is to be
taken as truth, the student must
obviously be either a genius or
a fool. But you aren't sure
which, and he knows it.
Label him a fool, and he
might end up brandishing a set
of amazing exam result at you
with wild, smug laughter. Geniuses are like that—it provides
them with some wry humour to
be mistaken as fools.
Unfortunately, the student is
usually neither genius nor
fool-—just a Har.
He'll glibly tell of how little
he has done during the term,
then he'll sneak off and do some
more readings on the personal
habits of Bismarck or Sun Yat-
And with such a story well-
circulated before the exams, he
is insured against all ridicule.
He can disclose his exam results
without hesitation. "That's what
happens wl\en you don't study,"
he said with feigned repentance.
And If he wins good passing
marks . . .
He's unbearable.
Of course, there are some
students who admit they have
studied hard. But this is usually done with the mistaken
notion that they are "showing
up" the others. Obviously only
a temporary superiority.
But what is really tragic is
the mediocre — plus naive —
student who listens to his mediocre friend use the "haven't
done a thing" ruse.
He will blithely ignore the
courses, relying on some frantic
cramming, while his allegedly
irresponsible friend has been
soaking up notes and textbooks
for  weeks.
This is probably the most
devastating way of being duped
Fortunately, not too many
students are taken in. Almost
to a man, they "haven't done
a thing."
President  Disputes   Article
(Following ii a Utter lo the
edtttir written by President
N. A. M. MatXensie, in
which he discusses the artldfe
which —passed fas The Ubyssey October 38. written' by
Dean Henry F. Angus and
oiietina arguments' ia sup*
pert at Quebec's tax dispute
with the federal Government.)
I read with a great deal of interest tiie guest editorial written by Dean Angus dealing with
the current controversy between the Premier and the government in Quebec and the
Prime Minister and the govern*
ment ot Canada. I hope you
will continue this practice and
that subsequent articles will be
equally good. There are one or
two comments I would like to
make about the article written
by Dean Angus.
Anyone with any knowledge
of Canadian Constitutional Law
would, and must agree, that
both governments, Dominion
and Provincial, have the legal
right to levy income taxes.
This, howavet, doss not do full
' justice,to tile position and problems of' the government and
Parliament of Canada. For a
variety of reasons, most of the
manufacturing done in Canada
is concentrated in Ontario and
Quebec. In addition, moat of the
head offices of industrial and
financial corporations are located there.
These facts, aide* hy a
tariff system, mean thai the
test ef us in Canada contribute slfBtftoaatly to tbe ia*
come tax revenues of Ontario and Quebec, either directly er indirectly. Only the
Dominion government and
Parliament can remedy this
situation through the taxing
power and control of financial policy.
Further, it should be noted
that the largest portion of the
revenues e! the Dominion ase
used to pay the costs ot our
participation   in two world
wars  and  to maintain our
present   defease   establishments, Iteae of this is shared
or borne by the provinces.
Granting the financial difficulties ot tbe provincial governments, it seems manifestly unfair   and   unwise   that   they
should claim unlimited freedom
of taxation within their spheres
and, at the same time, interfere
with or handicap the Federal
authorities in respect to these
vital matters.
The other comment has to do
with education. The British
North America Act, in Section
98, states that "in and for each
province, the Legislature (of
that province) may exclusively
make laws in relation to education." It then goes on to provide
in detail certain special and
limited provisions having to do
with "schools". It is my own
opinion that the Fathers of Confederation, in drafting this, had
in mind "schools,", i.e., "education" at that level only.
I do not believe it ever entered their minds (or heads) that
this section, was designed to
cover the Universities and the
other agencies—e.g., the churches, the newspapers, etc.,
which directly or indirectly do
"educate" people. Most of our
Universities at the time of Confederation were founded by or
affiliated with religious denominations. Some of them had
been given charters by Her
Majesty Queen Victoria, or by
earlier sovereigns.

it omits several of the most important human facts about our
national life and the kind of
world we live in.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
On the front page of your
November 9, 1954 edition of
The Ubyssey you had an article
quite obviously written by a
member of the UBC Faculty.
You are to be congratulated for
once more drawing to our attention the need for closer co-operation between students and
staff. Having a member of the
Faculty write a column for you
is definitely a step in the right
direction. Keep up the good
work! I have just one suggestion regarding this new column:
could a beter title not be found
for it than "Apology."
Yours truly, Ralph Lewis,
4th Year Student.
In this area I contend that
the maximum of freedom is of
the  greatest  importance   and
should be claimed and supported on every possible occssion.
Perhaps' the most serious objection to Dean Angus' statement is that his argument disregards the importance of Canadian unity and of "Canada" as
• nation. I do not believe this
to hove been his intention, for
few have contributed as much
to their country, Canads, as he
has. Bat the fact remains, that
his article plays into the hands
of   tho   "Quebec Nationalist"
and appears to  support their
claims—or so it seems to me.
I grant him, and others,
that our "Federalism" is a
fact and that the Provinces
do have "rights" and "inter

Dean's Article
Attention of tho Royal Commission of Inquiry on Constitutional Problems has been drawn
to an article by Dean H. F. Angus appearing in the October 2Q
issue of The Ubyssey.
The article dealt with the current federal-provincial tax controversy regarding Quebec's refusal of an educational grant
from the Federal government on
grounds of preserving Quebec's
"provincial autonomy."
R. J. Clark, co-secretary of
the Commission, has requested
that The Ubyssey send six copies
of the story to the Commission's
headquarters in Montreal.
Grad pictures must be in
to their respective studios by
Saturday, November 27, at the
very latest.
Studios have requested that
the proofs be checked and one
good snap be selected by the
students and returned to
Campbell, D'Acry or Krass
studios. Students have been lax
in the later request only. All
pix have taken and ready lor
over two weeks, and over
one hundred must be picked
Students of all faculties
must check their own immediately or else their selection
will not be ready for distribution as Christmas gifts before
January. Worse still, the snaps
supposedly for Totem will not
be done at all—and blank
pages will be the result,--so it
Ls up to the grads to go down
to the studios immediately.

615 feet above some high ground near

The problem was bow to extract iron from

Blues Nearly Upset
By Rampaging Birds
UBC Thunderbirds showed their best form of the Season Saturday when they rose against
a heavily favoured Toronto Varsity Blues team and held them to a narrow 5-3 victory.
UBC's near win, and it was a game which the Birds could have won proved once and
for all that the Evergreen Conference is much tougher than the Eastern Intercollegiate

Whereas many people were
content to believe only the top
everygreen teams could beat
the  Eastern leaders,  the Birds
demonstrated Saturday even the
lowest team could almost do it.
Birds showing also proved that
Don Coryell has a full grasp of
the Canadian game. The defense
he sent against the Blues was
one of the toughest they have
faced all year.
Bird Quintet Raps
St. Martins' Twice
By Bob Bergen
Varsity's hoop squad out-scored St. Martin's Rangers both
nights to post rf double win during their first weekend of intercollegiate competition. Scores were 53-47 and 58-52.
In Friday's game i the Rangers
matched the Birds basket for
basket throughout the first
half. Midway in the second frame
after the Redshirts had jumped
to' a 3 point lead, John McLeod
got hot and scored 12 points in
the last 13 minutes as UBC
surged ahead to win 93-47. His
total for the evening was 17.
Saturday night, Thunderbirds
grabbed an early lead, poured
in the points, and at half time
they were in front 33-22. They
increased their advantage to 85-
40 in the second stanza and with
19 minutes to go the game looked
like a walk away.
But, the Rangers finally found
their shooting eye and Forbis
scored 16 of his night's 19 points
in the last few minutes as UBC
was hard pressed to come out
on   top  58-52.
John McLeod was the high
man for UBC again Saturday
night as he hit the basket from
all angles to the tune of 29
Both nights, Carter and Pollock helped the Blue and Gold
with their outstanding offensive
and defensive play.
Some 800 fans, cheerleaders,
and members of Toronto and
UBC football teams were on hand
to cheer the Birds Friday night.
Saturday evening, the footballers were tired (except Buzz
Hudson who jumped from football togs to basketball strip),
the cheerleaders were tired and
the fans were all wet as a mere
handful braved the elements to
lend some support to the Blue
and Gold  Quintet.
UBC   Braves  trounced   Lord
Byng 63-20 in Saturday's opener.
The near incredible upset last
Saturday by the football Thunderbirds over U of T, was emulated (a fine wad), in full by
the  Varsity  Rowing  Club.
In Seattle to meet the U of
Washington 8, the UBC crew
were expected by no one to offer
serious competition to the world-
rated Huskies.
However, by ignoring the odds
and their opposition's ominous
reputation, the Varsity 8 fought
the Americans to the wire, and
lost by :it's of a length.
The JV rowing 8 dropped a
close decision to Washington
JV's and Oregon's Varsity, but
their lack of usl)ell-time" too,
is probably the contributing factor.
Old man weather took a
hand in weekend activities and
rained out two grasshockey
games, three rugger games
and two soccer games.
RANGER SKIP OLSfIN (25) reaches furtively for the
ball as the big boys John McLeod and Ranger Bob Forbis

collected 19 points in Saturday's action, was overshadowed
by Big John, who picked up 17 on Friday and 29 on Saturday. —Maze Photo

Their famed pass offense was
held to 57 yards on a 2 for 12
average. Duncan, on the other
hand, who has been running the.
Birds most of the season, clicked
with a 3 for 7 average and 87
Coryells devised defense also
held in check the explosive power of the three ace, runners In
the Blues backfield, Steve Oneschuck, Phil Mufatz and Dick
Though the three picked off
seven yard averages, the vicious
Bird tackling kept them from
any long gains.
Every man that appeared on
the field played so well its hard
to name the stars. Bob Morford
would have to be one for his
field goal was' the only Bjrd
Call Ted Duncan another, for
he played a great game at quarterback, playing offensive signal
caller for the entire game, and
his 39 yard average on a fairly
slippery field was a shade better
than the kicking of the famed
Steve Oneschuck.
Birds entered into the game
underdogs, and for a few minutes
they played hard, but despar-
ation, underdog football. Before
long they found the Blues weren't so tough and soon proved it.
When Ian Stewart intercepted
a pass by Harry Wilson, the
Birds started to catch fire. They
held Toronto outside UBC's 20
yard line for the entire game.
Morford, who was recruited
at 12:30 Saturday to do the place
kicking, scored his 3 points in
the second quarter after a UBC
downfield march.
Oneschuck replied seven minutes later with a field goal.
During the quarter Toronto's
freshman halfback Dick Bethune
raced 43-yards across the Birds'
goal line but was called back
because of a holding penalty
against the Blues.
Oneschuck's two singles came
in the third quarter.
UBC threatened thrice more
but each time were held back.
A long pass to Newton and successive runs by Newton and
Duncan put the ball on Toronto's twenty, but Toronto took
over and moved it out of danger.
Morford tried a kick later ln
the same quarter but-, it was
blocked by Toronto's Pinkney.
He tried a long one again tit
the final minutes of the game
after Duncan had moved tho
Birds down on a 32 yard sleeper
to Bruce Eagle, but the boot
fell short.
Though the Birds lost, there
were no tears.
We could have easily won. If
Toronto roundly beats the Western Mustangs next Saturday,
there will be few people ready
to name the Birds as low as
Canada's second best team.
The combination of Canadian
rules and unlimited blocking
seems to be the best spectator's
The biggest joke to come out
of the game is off the fans who
stayed away because they were
afraid of the rain or doubted
the Birds chances.
