IFC Limits
Number Of
Number of fraternities on the
campus has been limited to 17,
Hank Sweatman president of
the Inter Fraternity Council
stated today.
The move is to assure that those
newly formed groups will be strong
enough to carry on the high standards of the present fraternity system
on the campus.
Another reason for limitation is
the fact that university registration
is not stable, and the IFC feels that
it cannot be sure of the number of
people fraternities will be able to
absorb when registration has returned
to normal.
Along the newly formed fraternities are Landa Chi which was accepted by the IFC Tuesday. Also
seeking admission on the UBC campus are the Delta Chi Fraternity.
Legion Sponsors
Friday Tea Dance
Crippled children will benefit from
a tea dance to be held in the Brock
from 3:30 to 5:30 Friday.
The dance is being sponsored by
Branch 72, Canadian Legion. Officials
pf the branch said it would be the
first of a series of four afternoon
dances to be held on the campus
this year.
Admission at Friday's affair will be
25 cents. Proceeds will go to the
Children's Hospital at Marpole, according to Marion Smith, Legion executive member in charge of entertainment. She said this was in line
with renewed efforts of the branch
to raise money for charitable purposes.
Music will be provided by Frank
Nightingale's eleven piece orchestra,
j,-:l will feature his new vocalist,
Marilyn Frederickson.

NFCUS President To Visit
21 Canadian Universities

CONFUSION reigned momentarily Wednesday as two Student
Council members got their directions mixed when they were
pointing out sights of interest to Hon. W. T. Straith, provincial
Minister of Education (right) and his aide, Col. F. Fairey. Grant
Livingstone, AMS president and Bob Harwood, treasurer, were
showing the visitors around the campus after a short meeting
with student officials. Mr. Straith, who recently replaced Dr.
George Weir in the cabinet discussed many student problems
including the War Memorial Gymnasium.
U of T Council Asks
Lower Tuition Fees
Toronto, Jan. 29—(CUP)—Recommendations calling for
increased government grants and the reduction of current fee
levels have been submitted to the Board of Governors by the
Student Administrative Council at the University of Toronto.
The   recommendations,   part   of   a^
brief   drawn   up  by  a   special  SAC
committee, were approved in the last
general session of the SAC and were
forwarded to the University governing body last week,
Other proposals included in the
brief ask for a gradual lowering of
fees below the 1946 level and for
more bursaries similar to those set
up by the Dominion-Provincial
"Each person cannot be educated
to the fullest extent of his ability
regardless of his parent's financial
circumstances at the present time in
Ontario,"   reads  the  brief   in   part.
Greek Song Fest
in Brock March 9.
Greek fraternities and sororities
will hold their annual song fest in
the Brock Hall on March 9.
In charge of arrangement's this
year are Miss Nora McQuarry vice-
president of the Pan-Hellenic Society,
and Harry Mark of Psi Upsilon Fraternity,
The fest is scheduled for 7 o'clock
and at the completion of the singing
there will be a dance.
While emphasizing that no fault
lies with the university or college
authorities, it raps the present bursary system as inadequate and sees
the solution "resting with those authorities within whose realm the
problem lies."
Increased fees coupled with the rising cost of living are blamed for
''preventing impoverished students
from attending university."
Full student privileges for campus
activities will be accorded members
of the Rural Youth Training Course,
according to Bob Harwood, AMS
Harwood stated Wednesday that
Council had received a request from
the Extension Department that 95
students attending the course at
Acadia Camp be granted temporary
AMS passes.
He pointed out that such passes
would entitle holders to concessions
made by off-campus organizations, including reduced fares on BCER
buses. Therefore it was impossible
for Council to grant the request' on its
own authority.
However, he said, Council had extended an invitation to the interior
students to participate in all activities
on  the  campus.

Bob Currie
Nominated For
Junior Member
First in the field for the position of Junior Member on the
Students' Council is Bob Currie, who filed nomination
papers Tuesday.
Currie, who is 26, is in Second
Year Arts.
A former RCAF veteran, Currie
has been president of the Students'
Council at Acadia Camp for the past
two years. He is also Vice Chairman of USC and Chairman of the
International .Student Service committee on the campus.
In the latter capacity he attended
the national ISS Conference last November, and represented the ISS at
the NFCUS Conference in December.
Frequenters of Brock Hall lounge are "in the doghouse" as far as Discipline Committee members are concerned
"Woe betide the dogs responsible for the litter in Brock
Lounge," AMS Treasurer Bob Harwood exclaimed Wednesday.
His remarks are said to have been in reference to the
alleged untidy conditions of the lounge during the past few
weeks. Reliable sources hinted that action would soon be
taken against offenders.
Engineers Issue 'Blanket'
Challenge To Dime Race
Slightly of a lighter nature in the way of challenges which
are currently being hurled about the campus is the one which
came from the Engineers yesterday.
Reluctant to  throw  a  challenge  at'f
any individual or any one group, the
ISS Announces
German Seminar
A summer seminar for Canadian
and European students, featuring discussion of foreign affairs, will be held
in the British Zone of Germany next
The seminar, sponsored by International Student Services and United
Nations Educational and Social Council, will offer an opportunity for 50
Canadian students and 10 Canadian
professors to get together with European students and professors.
All expenses will be paid for by
The scheme provides for five UBC
Requirements are: a high scholastic standard and an active interest
in  international  affairs.
Application blanks are available at
the ISS office, Hut B2. Deadline for
applications  is  February  20.
Other matters brought forth, at
Friday's AMS general meeting, in
the report of NBC's delegation to
ISS conference, held in Toronto last
November were: a suggestion that
the ISS co-operate with the National
Federation of Canadian University
Students in the publication of a national magazine and the matter of ISS
aid to European and Chinese students.
It was decided that the matter of
the national magazine be deferred
.to the Fall of 1948 pending NFCUS's
A request of a one dollar donation
from each student was made to aid
in the sending of clothes, books, food,
and equipment to European students.
Men of Science have come out with
an "open challenge."
They have made the blanket statement that they can contribute more
dimes and faster per man enrolled
to the March of Dimes than any
other faculty. The contest will take
the form of a race in forming a line
of dimes from to Quad to the Applied
Science building.
The stunt is reminiscent of former
days when Sciencemen and Artsmen
used to line pennies up in a race
from the Quad to the office of the
Dean of Applied Science. Like this
one, those former penny races were
staged to raise money for charity.
A Jokers request that fraternities enter candidates for
King of the Kiddies Ball has not been met with enthusiasm
by the Greeks,
Hank Sweatman IFC president reports that the fraternity men are too tied up with their own formals and other
affairs to devote much time to this matter.
However it is understood that individual fraternities
are being approached and some of them may be entering
candidates for the contest.
A trip that will take him as far east as Charlottetown,
P.E.I, begins next month for Bob Harwood when the president
of the National Federation of Canadian University Students
makes his annual tour of 21 Canadian universities.
Harwood's first port of call will bet '
McMaster University at Hamilton,
where he will preside over the meeting
of the NFCUS national executive.
The executive will map out the
NFCUS program for 1948, in line with
the report of last December's national
Following that," Harwood will begin
a tour of the 21 member universities
of NFCUS. The trip will cover campuses from UBC to Charlottetown
PEL It will be in line with a similar
tour made by last year's president,
Maurice Sauve, who visited UBC in
My trip across Canada has two
purposes," Harwood said. "One is to
stimulate interest in the work of
NFCUS on the various campuses. The
other is to contact the individuals on
each campus who are responsible for
carrying out the 1948 program."
Each unversity, Harwood explained,
has been assigned the job of instituting part of the NFCUS plan for the
year. UBC is to organize the University Radio Federation. The University of Toronto will seek to arrange
a national summer tour for Canadian
Other parts of the program include
efforts to expand the system of reduced railway fares to cover students
travelling anywhere at anytime.
NFCUS will also attempt to organize a
Dominion Intercollegiate Athletic Union, and a National Intercollegiate
Debating Union.
Acadia, Westbrook
Get Power Shutoff
UBC area, including the University,
Acadia Camp, Westbrook Camp and
the University Endowment Lands will
be blacked out for three hours early
Saturday morning, the B'.C. Electric
announced yesterday.
To allow their maintenance men tc
do electrical line work, the company
will turn off the power in that area
from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. Saturday.
Mobile PA Systems
Disrupt Classes
Professors Report
Use of mobile public address
units on the university campus
is causing considerable disruption in lectures.
Grant Livingstone, .AMS president,
said yesterday that he had received
numerous complaints from university
officials of repeated interruptions by
the loudspeaker systems during lecture hours.
Livingstone warned that in future
students using public address units',
except during the noon hour break,'
would have to first receive permission
from the AMS co-ordinator of activities, Bob Bagnall.
$25 Prize Offered
Thunderbird Poets
Special incentive for campus poets
is contained in the UBC Thunder-
bird's newest call for contributions.
In recognition of the quarterly
magazine's part in stimulating young
writers, Mr. and Mrs. William Dor-
bils, city booksellers, have offered a
$25 prize for the best poem published
in the March issue.
Unique feature of the contest is
that the winner will be decided by
popular vote.
A ballot will be distributed with
each copy sold, and readers will be
asked to name their choice for poetic
excellence. Professors won't have a
say in the matter.
Deadline for all contributions is
February 14—little more than two
weeks away.
With a 32-page year-end issue
tentatively planned, Thunderbird
staff will have more room than ever
for stories, essays, humorous sketches, poems, cartoons, and other high-
quality contributions suitable for n
university level magazine.
Soph Member Named
To Assist Livingstone
Gordon Baum, Sophomore council member, has been appointed assistant AMS President. The move was made Wednesday to relieve Grant Livingstone of routine administrative
Head janitor of Brock Hall, Tom
Grantham, came under fire Wednesday, as early-rising students
lodged complaints about his tardiness
in opening the lounge.
Mr, Grantham stated that the
lounge definitely opened at 8 a.m.
while students on the other hand
maintained that it sometimes remained closed  until 9 a.m.
The matter has now been taken

room if the outcome of arecent debate
is any  indication.
In a humorous vein the debaters
pointed out that alcohol would provide the proper state for studying in
the library. Students could not be
distracted they said if they were not
able to see.
It was felt that the president's duties
had become  so burdensome that  an
assistant was essential, Livingstone
"Since the Sophomore member's
duties had previously been indeterminate, Baum was the logical choice,"
he added.
Present Council expects that the
precedent set will auComically make
future Sophomore members presidential assistants. *AGE 2

Professor Alfred C. Kinsey of the University of Indiana has recently published his
dbiumented findings from a study of the sex
ries of 12,000 American males in all
of life. Porf. Kinsey reports that the
pattern of the average male is firmly
ablisBred by the time he has reached sixteen
of age, and only in rare exceptions do
.. patterns change in later life.
"any women teachers—including high
flchool biology teachers—believe that the ninth
«r tenth grade boy is still too young to receive any sex instruction, when, in actuality,
Ik has already had a wider variety of sexual
•experience than most of his female teachers
will have," writes Prof. Kinsey.
The time is long past for an objective
course in sex education for B. C. schools.
More appropriately, a course in family relations, less the lily white raise cries of
"shocking" and "obscene". Public prejudice
must be overcome if we are to heed the findings of trained scientists.
Venereal disease lectures are not the
way even though the V.D. rate is incfeasing.
Nor should the course be a part of a general
science course. It should be a special and
COMPULSORY class with credits leading to
graduation. When this design has been effected we may reach greater understanding
both of ourselves and our fellow citizens.
Contrast this plan with the statement of
Cyril Biddy, Great Britain's representative
at the World Congress for population and
family life, that "children should know 'the
facts of life' by the time they are seven years
Sex education in B.C. is not a new idea.
It has been urged by the British Columbia
Parent-Teachers Association and many other
responsible groups. However, qualified tea- j
chers are needed. Here is a challenge. UBC
could and should lead the way. It is not a
course at the university level that is needed
but a course for young people who are estab- j
lishing their behaviour patterns.
Humankind can never be hurt by truths
that help us understand ourselves and our
fellow men.
Ignorance is not innocence.

What the females sing, beyond the insane
sorority odes, only God and the females will
flsver know. And there's an end to that.
But at a stag party—ah, that pinnacle of
dwilizatlon, that epitome of joy, that acme
of social living. Long live the stag party.
Stag party songs are lively, ribald and
legion. Everything from the completely vir
tuous Whiffenpoof, through the slightly shady
Wish all the Young Women, to the downright
licentious North Atlantic Squadron can be
sung—all that is needed for someone, during
some break in the proceedings, to utter the
first few bars, and the whole mob will join in.
The larger the mob the better, for the more
verses of each song will be known, and the
louder it will be sung.
There are definite songs for definite parts
of the evening, too. In the early stages of the
party the raucous, lively, pepped-up songs
are in order, like the one describing the adventures of the young lady who wears, upon
her thigh, a purple garter, or the one describing that great big fat babe, twice the size of
me. As the evening really grows into the
swing of things, a toast will be drunk to Lydia
Pinkham. Later, the singers will weep in
their cups over the Whiffenpoof.
Ah yes. The prime
THERE'S A ingredient for any male
KNACK song fest—the cups. To
sing a song properly, a
male needs a glass in one hand and the other
hand draped around the shoulders of his
neighbour. Singing to each other in this way
they are able to give full vent to their feelings
and to do proper justice to the sentiments of
their songs.
Admittedly, certain songs can be sung
nearly as well empty-handed as they can
through a Scotch mist. The namby-pamby,
soul-less ones like many of the popular epics
of the radio and certain college songs.
But to sing the Whiffenpoof, or the Squadron, without a glass in one's hand! That's
sacrilege! Nothing short of it.
Or Glenwhorple. And there is even a
further stipulation with this classic of the
Scots and that lies in the choice of drinks.
Whoever would think of carousing through
those peppy verses with rum or rye in their
glass? No! Never.
The glass is all-important, and that is why
the females, poor underprivileged persons that
they are, will never be able to sing the good
(even the clean good songs) with the proper
spirit. A man needs three sheets to the
wind, he needs a mind that is not cluttered
up with the responsibilities of taking a female
partner home.   In short he needs a stag party.
Dr. Osborne, Department of Veterans Affairs, stated that he wished to
remind veterans requiring urgent
dental treatment, which cannot be
attended to in the Campus Clinic,
that they may have this treatment
looked after by downtown dentists if
they wish. However the following
point should be noted. Such patients
must be examined by the Clinic before authorization will be granted for
work to be done by those dentists.
DVA will not assume the responsibility for unauthorized treatment.
President N.A.M. MacKenzie stated
in a recent message to the Branch
Executive that the rents for Little
Mountain and Island Camps would
be reduced from S per cant to Iff par
cent effective February 1. The President said that such reductions were
made possible by the cooperation and
assistance the residents had given in
keeping down operating and maintenance costs. The saving will help to
offset increase cost of living and the
extra transportation costs which residents of these camps have to meet
over those living at Acadia and Wes-

Dear Sir:
Because Mr. Livingstone is a
past president of the Branch, and
because certain charges made
against Mr. Livingstone affect the
reputation of the Branch, it is
incumbent upon me to correct one
error indulged in by his critics.
I shall confine this letter to the
persistent allegation that Mr. Livingstone "sabotaged" the campaign for increased grants.
My first point is that Mr. Livingstone has spent many hundreds
of hours in his attempt to gain
an increase for hard pressed veterans. Indeed it is fair to say that
Mr. Livingstone has spent hundreds of hours in excess of any
effort put forth by all his critics
combined, so far as we have heard
from them to date.
My second point is that Mr.
Livingstone has been misrepresented in the most mischievous
manner. He has been quoted as
saying that we "Ought not to em-
harass the Government by asking
for an increase." What he did say,
and what his stand has always
been, is that we "ought not to ask
for an increase beyond reasonable
limits." To omit the last three
words is to engage in gross error
or intellectual dishonesty. It is the
difference between stating the
positive and negative of a proposition.
If Mr. Livingstone relaxed his
efforts, it was during the season
when to persist would have done
more harm than good.
Opinions are personal matters,
which we should all be free to
reach for ourselves. I am only
concerned with the truth of the
basic facts given to us: and the
facts concerning Mr. Livingstone's
contribution to the grants campaign are so erroneous, and the
overall impression so unfair, that
I am unable to sit by and see the
Student Body deceived in this

Beauty Show, Formal Exams
Avocatcd At Student Poll
The public  opinion poll,  Mr.  Gallup's curse  to modern
civilization, got a play on the UBC campus last week.
A  series  of  eight   questions   were$>
used to various persons to determine
tlie thoughts of students in regard to
controversial questions that have stirred up argument during the past year.
Seventy per cent of the students
asked thought that UBC should return
to the system of formal three hour
exams at Christmas time. They were
not in favour of the honor system
being used by a sixty per cent majority.
If the poll is any authority, a goodly
number of students are going to remain in Canada after they receive
their degrees, sixty-eight per cent to
be exact. Ten per cent refused to
answer the question.
No, by a seventy-two per cent majority, was the consensus of opinion
when asked whether campus forums
and clubs should take political party
When students were asked whether
they   thought   that   fraternities   and
sororities should have their own tables
in the caf, seventy-eight per cent said
no they should not.
The Mardi Gras and the Fall Ball
don't seem to supply people with
enough pulchritude during the year,
so seventy-four per cent are in favour
of continuing the Western Canada
beauty contest that was held for the
first time at UBC last year.
Thirty per cent of the students were
of the opinion that the charges laid
against AMS president Grant Livingstone by the editor of another campus
paper were valid. Thirty-six per cent
had no opinion.
A big fat cigar and a pat on the
back from the editor-in-chief was my
reward for a positive answer to the
eighth question. Asked whether they
thought that The Daily Ubyssey reported the news in an unbiased, accurate manner, seventy-five per cent
said yes.

HAL MURPHY, Acting Sports Editor
chalk talk . . .
... by Chick Turner
Situated deep beneath the soft-cushioned luxury of the
main lounge of the Brock Memorial Building, in the cold bareness of the south basement, is a tiny, grubby hovel on whose
door is inscribed in the austere, thumby printing of the Mamooks
Your reporter was meandering aimlessly along the bare
corridor which leads finally to the spacious studios of the Radio
Society the other day, when his attention was suddenly focused
on the aforementioned advertisement. But three years' fruitless
dissipation on the campus were beginning to tell. His eyes had
• only to reach the word, PEP, before his interest lagged and
plunged into indifference.
From Dejection To Glendinning
Pursuing the object of his bleary glance no farther, he
shuffled along the corridor into the businesslike atmosphere of
the microphone muggers, into "the House that Perrault built."
Your columnist was scheduled to air his weekly sportscast over
a vast campus network (the latest Hooper rating gives us an
audience reaction of minus 10). As usual, he lost the battle of
the script, and was cut-off again in mid-syllable by a host of
officialdom, on the subtle pretext of over-running the time allotment. For someone who was accustomed to lease space by the
column inch this was the end. Hysterical sobs rent the gloomy
quiet of the studios. It was at that precise moment in the fortunes of your humble scribe, that good friend Lome Glendinning
took matters in hand.
Lome And The Forlorn Reporter
After the usual felications, Glendinning invited this unworthy one to accompany him to his "office."
"Office, Lome, they haven't moved the Georgia up here
have they?" was the query.
There was no reply. Instead the masterful Glendinning
ushered us through the same door which we had so haughtily
by-passed a brief quarter hour before. It was then that the
horrible truth came out - Glendinning was the convener of the
Joint Pep Board.
But before, we continue this thrilling sequence, a word
about this jack of all trades, Lome Glendinning. Lome has
done a lot of things in his hectic campus career, from playing
football to emceeing at pep meets, but in the opinion of this
observer his greatest claim to fame is having had his mug in
every third picture in the American Football section of last
year's Totem.
Smoothie Glendinning
Glendinning is a smooth operator, and he has shrewdly
acquired those two pre-requisites, that most of the local gay-
blades have found necessary to campus success, namely, a harem
of secretaries, and a glib line of chatter. His business technique
is astoundingly simple. If he can't over-power you with the
chatter - and your reporter prides himself on having matched
the Pepsters phrase for phrase down the backstretch
conversation - he simply snaps his fingers, and the bevy of
beauties lying so negligently at his feet, swings the deal his way.
It Began With Operation Bellingham
This corner does not consider itself immune to feminine
charm, and so the conversation shifted quite naturally to the
latest Glendinning craze, his Joint Pep Board. According to
Lome, the purpose of the board, in brief, is to co-ordinate fhe
publicity of all campus activities and to further campus spirit.
It all started, says he, with the Bellingham invasion on October
11, when the Thunderbirds were trounced by the Western Washington Vikings, and the Great Northern Railway suffered a
similar setback from the UBC campus cavaliers.
Then A Trip To Seattle
Glendinning was entrusted with the supervision of the
Board, and during the remaining weeks of the first term he
sponsored pep meets, half-time entertainment, and dances after
the games ,at which the brawn of the gridiron was admitted
free. Valuable suggestions and ideas were received from various
student groups across the continent to which the Pep-Board had
written, and a tremendous boost to the planning of activities
was given by the trip to the University of Washington at Seattle.
Plans For The Future
At present Glendinning's committee consists of representatives from the Mamooks, URS, the Jokers, Phrateres, the Daily
Ubyssey, and the Students' Council. Future plans include a
drive to provide uniforms for the Varsity Band, card stunts in
the stadium next fall during home games, and arrangements
for an Open House, which was shelved until next year by the
Special AMS Meeting last week.
At any rate, that was the gist of our ten minute confab, and
by now it was getting near lecture time. Lome and this reporter
bade each other a tentative adieu, as we sped off to our respective
extra-curricular activities; Lome said in parting: "These lectures
are beginning to interfere with my work."

After looking at the records, and
championships that nearly all of the

'Birds will have their hands full to
beat the Pilots. Portland University
has gone independent and has no
league or conference affiliations. As
a result they play games against some
of the most powerful hoop squads on
the Pacific Coast.
Last year in a four game series,
the Pilots came out on top in three
of the contests dropping only the last
game by a 56-49 score. Typical of
this year's team strength is the 82-43
beating the Portland U handed the
Whitman boys a few nights ago.
However the Birds will be ready
for the invaders when they arrive
and the clash may well prove to be
some of the best basketball on view
on the campus this year. Tickets are
available at the office of the Graduate
Manager of Athletics, Luke Moyls.
