Student Leaders To Seek Funds
From Victoria For Early Start
Construction  of UBC's  War  Memorial  Gymnasium   may
begin before term's end.
B.C. Legislature will be asked to underwrite the current
fund deficit which is delaying the half-million dollar project.
Grant Livingstone revealed Thursday that a brief has be.?n
prepared asking aid for the lagging campaign.
In  a 'brief  to  the  legislature,  AMS I ■
President     Livingstone     asked     that
plans  be  made  to start   work  on  the
project   this   spring.
A further letter has been dispatched
to the minister of education, Hon, W.
T. Straight requesting an interview
with the cabinet some time between
March   15   and   25.
If tho interview is obtained a
delegation consisting of Dave Brousson, Fred Boulton, and Grant Livingstone  will   be  sent  to   Victoria.
Protest by students that the upper
football field wns too far from center
of activities met with a deaf ear
from the administration, who declared all central space would be needed
for "other projects."
Thc "cumbersome and ineffective"
Gym Committee was streamlined at
a Wednesday meeting. The former
committee was chopped to a skeleton
of the original 46 members. The active
chairmanship will be assumed by
Dave Brousson, while Grant Livingstone will remain nominal head of
the group.
Finance committee reported a deficit of $140,000; $570,000 is required to
begin construction, and thus far only
$430,000  has  been  realized.
It is* hoped that the government
subsidy, which Livingstone will seek,
will  underwrite this lack.
UBC Forestry Faculty
Considered by Senate
Establishment of a faculty of Forestry is under consideration. President Norman A. M. MacKenzie told
the UBC Forest Club at its annual
banquet  this week.
The Senate, he said, was "favorably
impressed" with student work in
forestry and would give "sympathetic
consideration" to the Forest Club's
request that the Department of Forestry be made a faculty.
Narrow Margin
Passes Price
Control Resolve
Resolution asking return of
price controls took a narrow
decision in a Parliamentary
Forum debate yesterday which
evenly split the student jurists.
Prime Minister, Murray Bryce, called for return of controls "to stop
a few capitalists from making exorbitant profits at the expense of
the common people."
Price controls, he said, had kept the
cost-of-living in Britain, Australia
and New Zealand from rising more
than three percent while in Canada
and the United States cost-of-living
has  risen  nearly  30  percent.
Dave Braid, Leader of the Opposition, declared that price control would
necessitate a totalitarian economy.
Canadians, he felt, would never submit to such control.
The other alternatives were: removal
of money from circulation through
re-purchase war bonds or a "hands
off" policy of letting inflation take its
course. The latter, he said, would
probably prove the more successful
in the long run.

The last in a series of four benefit

Recent developments in Czechoslovakia,
beginning with the rise to power of the communist party and culminating this week with
the suicide leap of Foreign Minister Jan
Masaryk, may have a strong hand in determining action to be taken by the Canadian
delegation to Prague this summer.
The team of student diplomats will represent the National Federation of Canadian
University Students and will seek a compromise affiliation with the International Union of Students centered at the Czech capital,
pending the approval of a majority of Canadian campuses.
This approval was assured by Bob Harwood earlier this week following a tour of
Canadian universities.
The Gottwald-Communist government of
the central European nation has shown its
hand in its policy toward anti-government
students at Prague universities.
From the highly garbled despatches
reaching this side of the world it appears
that students demonstrated in the city, in an
effort to have Benes turn down the solid
communist cabinet set up by Gottwald. They
were fired upon by police. One was killed and
several injured. Presumably as a result, Gott
wald rang down a ban on "anti-me" students,
barring them from universities.
With this information at hand, the National Student Assembly, U.S. counterpart
of the NFCUS, have repudiated the lUS
with whom they were about to affiliate. There
is a well substantiated rumour that the U.S.
body may even turn down the affiliation bid.
Meanwhile, Grant Livingstone, who is
earmarked to lead the negotiating team at
Prague this summer is wondering how much
of all this is true.
It is our conviction that if Hitler had
done in 1938 what Gottwald apparently did
last week the headlines would have screamed
loud and long. It is a great credit to the
thoroughness of the Gottwald press-control
that they did not.
What is needed is information—straight,
uncolored information.
If the situation in Prague is as diseased
as one would believe from such startling
developments NFCUS might be further ahead
to rally with the NSA and such other British
and French schools that wish to come along,
and start a second world union. Certainly
there can be no doubt of the value of a world
student union at this critical time.
Students Slow
To Accept Swiss
Exchange Offer
Who wants to go to Switzerland?
Student Exchange between Canada
and Switzerland has been established
for some months and as yet no Canadian students have taken advantage
of the offer. Four Swiss students
have come to Canada under the
scheme, two are studying at Queen's,
one at Laval and one at UBC.
The lack of funds may hinder some
students from applying, according to
Alex Huber, Swiss student from Zurich now studying at UBC. He states
that Canadian exchange students can
attend Swiss universities free of all
fees and several generous scholarships are availably to Canadians. Research assistantships are open to post
graduate students. In addition Huber
claims that the cost of living is comparable to Canada.
President N.A.M. MacKenzie has
given his support to the exchange
movement and said, "if I were given
the opportunity, I would start 'for
Switzerland  tomorrow."
Applications for the term commencing next fall should be handed
in to Dr. MacKenzie within the next
few weeks.

Film    Notes
By Egilson and Hunt
The audience eagerly awaited the
revelation of the "Secret beyond the
Door". Tension grew. A deathly silence filled the theatre as an air of
expectancy and suspense whispered
through the darkened chamber. The
picture was becoming intense to the
breaking point. Then it happened. The
Door opened, the music blared; before us in an anteroom hung a curtain—hiding what?
The door had but opened another
avenue to further discovery and suspense in Walter Wanger's latest production "Secret beyond the Door",
a. tale of long misunderstandings and
dark compulsions.
Joan Bennett is provided with a
first rate leading man, Michael Redgrave, and a fine supporting cast.
While Joan's acting follows the Ben
nett tradition it is dwarfed by Michael Redgrave's magnificent performance which dominates the entire
This is British actor Redgrave's
first American appearance but he has
been in fine roles in "Way to the
Stars" and "The Man Within". Each
time he turns in a performance that
is completely individual and convincing. His conscious acting is given
full play in a role of a sensitive character obsessed with a compulsion he
must struggle against. This obsession
finds outward expression in a macabre
hobby of collecting "felicitious"
rooms. This complex is of course all
carefully unravelled but the interest
is cleverly maintained.
In the supporting cast Anne Revere
and Barbara O'Neill appear as craggy
faced, rather repressed souls who are
wrapped up in one man. Mark Dennis
by underplaying the role is effective
as a bitter sensitive child.
"Secret Beyond the Door" has a
symbolism which is persuasive yet
not too obvious. Curiosity compels an
opening of the physical door but only
communication and understanding can
open the mental one. Courage is
necessary to support the long night
walk down the sinister corridors to
the fatal door—No. 7—which, when
opened, provides but a key to further
enlightenment. The dangerous and
delicate task of trying to unlock a
mind whose finely adjusted tumblers
have become warped and strained,
where a false move would lead to
instant destruction is fascinating to
watch as it is played with great skill
and restraint.

Spirit or Stomach
Last week we attended the
opera, but now we find ourselves
sorting our dollars and wondering
if $3.25 (tax included) buys better
food for the spirit than for the
stomach. In other words, if your
life is barren, Yasha Menuin's
French horn may be able to feed
your soul, but if your stomach is
also empty, chicken livers on toast
is infinitely better.
It's the old story: one man's T-
bone is another man's castor oil.
Entertainment and culture, in a
variety of forms, run in strange
channels. Rumor has it even that
some lower types cultivate The
Alex and The Mandarin (so t'he
older boys tell us). Some escapists
even take in a movie if cash is
short, and we won't claim exception.
Food This Week
So we're not having any sonatas
and things tonight. Instead we
buy the steak dinner and flip the
change to see what show it'll take
us to, which turns out to be a
double feature at the local neighborhood theatre.
Now, flipping a coin doesn't insure the peerless in film art. And
we're satisfied at this, because
we're not after any gems tonight.
It's  the  typical  everyday   variety
for grown-ups that we want 	
Hollywood's current expression of
the  age.  So  we  attend.
We   walk   into   "Dark   Passage"
and see Humphrey Bogart beating
in somebody's face. Bogart has
just escaped from the pen, and in
a few seconds will meet Lauren
Bacall who will fall in love with
him and hide him from the cops.
An encouraging touch is given to
this picture when Bogart has his
face lifted, but afterwards it still
looks like Humphrey.
Bong! Bong!
We enjoy all this, and why not?
Weaned on gunplay from the first
matinee, when we shot it out with
Slade, the crooked Sheriff, and
before the toffee was dry on our
grubby faces we could shoot from
the hip at fifty yards.
We were robbing stagecoaches
with six-shoot'ers before you could
say "reach pardner," and we
rustled cattle, heading our cayuses
through the sage, ten posses spurring after us hard by.
We could outdraw and outswill
the shootinest, drinkinest, hombre
that ever hitched his pinto outside a saloon. We could outsph'
the spittinest desert rat that ever
hit a spitoon at twenty feet.
Didn't we sweat it out with
Cagney through machine gun
slugs and tear gas? And when we
didn't squeal, we took the rap
and went up the river with him
to the hot seat, triculent to the
On The Lam
Life has been one long brush
with   government  agents,   private
dicks, and G-men. We've been on
the lam since Raft rubbed out his
first flat-foot, and what with
muscling in on the rackets, and
generally keeping up with the
mob, we've had our hands full.
No-one can say we flinched
when we shoved Edward G. Robinson's moll out the window, and
rattled our tommy guns dead at
him — old stuff to us.
So why shouldn't we enjoy
ourselves consorting with real
men who know what to do with
a gat, and use blackjacks and
brass knuckles with equal finesse.
Yes, the thug has endeared himself
to us, and vies with Fosdick for
top place on our idol list.
Hearts and Flowers
But in this picture innocent
Bogart serves somebody else's
time and then powders to get the
rat who put the finger on him.
Hunted Humphrey is no rod man
inside, but our hearts go out to
him anyway — from force of
We hang around hoping for
more battle and hatchetry, but
unhappily, the picture ends happily.
As we leave the threatre foyer,
we take a last drag on our butts,
flick them away and pull our
dark fedoras over our shifty eyes,
turn up the collars on our black
overcoats, and walk deliberately
into the night ready for anything.

Goodbye forever.

Tennant" or "philosophic like Bewley" I finally have to throw in the
It probably does not matter particularly because there are not going
to be any more issues of The Daily
Ubyssey anyhow. That depends, of
course, on the prediction that I am
about to make coming true.
Third World War
The sudden end to publication will
not be the result of a cut in the AMS
grant. Rather, it will be caused by
the Third and last world war.
I am being neither sarcastic, nor
cynical, as is the usual habit in these
little pieces. If anyone had dared to
suggest at the beginning of this session that I would be gloomily predicting another war, the result would
have been uproarious laughter.
Now I am quite prepared to concede
the inevitability of a war to end all
True, these are the opinions of one
man but by virtue of the dubious
honor of filling up space once a
week I qualify as a columnist and,
following that, as a prognostics tor.
Again, with no sarcasm intended,
I have as much right to state my
views as Dorothy Thompson or Walter Winchell. Over the air and through
the press these harbingers of havoc
have been crying for war and now
they are going to get it. But the fault
does not lie with them.
Popular Support
Wars originate in the minds of
men; minds warped by greed or by
fear or by both. The fact that this
coming war will have popular support
is the result of man's inherent laziness. By his refusal to use his basic
thinking apparatus man has allowed
himself, instead, to he stampeded because others have taken upon themselves to do his thinking for him.
The UBC campus is a prime example of a place where the average
mind is completely befuddled by the
steady stream of ideological balderdash. The trees of truth are obscured
by a forest of political deadwood.
Worker and Province
It is impossible for the average
person to make an analysis on the
basis of existing sources of information, Tlie Daily Worker is no better
than tlie Daily Province in that respect. Speakers for various points of
view also take their own side and
in many cases truth is ignored in
favor of dramatic effect upon the
reader or listener.
And so foT the point of this sermon. It is rather pompous of a student journalist to implore his fellow
students to be careful. But at the
risk of sounding like a soap-box
orator I am going to say it anyhow.
Be careful. A good product does not
have to be sold with fanatic fervor.
The editorial writers and the paid
peepers might possibly be wrong.
By the same token I, too, might be
When the world has been devastated
by another war and the few of us
who remain grovel in the radio active
dirt there will be plenty of time for
thinking. One can only hope that
those who are left alive in the grave
of civilization will use the opportunity to think for themselves.
It is true that wars begin in the
minds of men but only because the
minds of men are not working to full

"Sportsman" Pol
Still Indefinite
Who. is the most popular

fact is still undecided as a staff
of Daily Ubyssey reporters and

votes at presstime last night.
It was hoped that counting of thc

that the counters are still wading

out neck and neck with Barrie Morris
captain of the rugger squad. Doug
Reid, Pat McGeer, and Bobby Haas
