Broad Humor, Wit
In Bloch Recital
Stimulated by pre-meetirig discussion and editorials, this years'
Spring general meeting was one of
the most successful ln AMS history.
At nearly 4:00 p.m. weary students
finally passed an amended version
of motion that: "Wheras racial
and religious dlscrlmatlon ls contrary to tbe tradition of this uni
versity, the Faculty Council be requested to ask all campus organ!-
stations to remove all such dis-
crlmtory clauses within a reasonable length of time."
The orglnal motion, as put forward by llbyssey editor-ln-chlef
Les Armour staled speclflcdilty
that Greek Letter Societies be ask-
to remove such clauses, and that
they do so before Sept. 1, 1952.
Hottest Question
By ALLAN KINO
"The most amusing and entertaining evening I have ever
spent ln a concert hall" Is the
way one faculty member described the Susanne Bloch con-
cert he heard in Times Hall,
last May.   .       j
Though anyOutstandlng musicologist and Vttifpratlve musician, Sueanne "Bloch Is possess-
ed*.-of^f^^|fl^
and scintillating wjt which add
to the musical Virtues of her
lecture-recUftls. '
Though her literal translations of racy songs from the
middle ages (when a spade was
called a spade) may offend the
tender minded, they will of-
lord endless amusement to
those who enjoy broad humor
of the Chaucerian type.
Entirely informal in her approach to recltOjis, Mlsa Bloch
believes that her. music should
be enjoyed for the entertainment It was originally designed for.
In addition to an entertaining evening of wit and music,
Miss Bloch will give Vancou-
ver audiences their first opportunity of hearing such ancient,
but still delightful instruments
as the lute, recorder and virginals. These Ancient ancestors of the guitar, flute and
pjiao; disappeared Iwm the,
musical scene for a period ol
200 years. Thanks to the efforts of such musicians as
Suzanne Bloch and Andres Segovia, they are once again
. being brought to the attention
of music lovers.
A rapacity audience approaching the size of the Segovia
concert Is expected to be on
hand for this delightful concert. Students are urged to arrive early in order to obtain
their tickets. The concert
commences at 8:30 ln Brock
Hall,  Saturday,   March  22.
British Poet To Hold
Reading In Auditorium
University Fine Arts Committee and Literary and Scientific Executive will, jointly present contemporary British poet
Dylan Thomas in a reading of his own poetry noon Wednesday, April 9, in the University Auditorium.

The most hotly discussed ques-|Wore a contradiction of what this
tion of the meeting, the fraternity
dlscrlmatlon ban, provoked much
comment pro and con. Ron Foxall,
EUS president felt "that fraternities and sororities seemingly do no
harm." Dave Anfleld, IPC prexy
stated that "no frat backs discriminatory clauses; the IFC lias for
six years tried to force the clause
out" Peter Bishop believed tint
"the problem was one, not of
legislation, but of education.''
Vaughan Lyon, one of the original movers of a motion to ban
fraternities'  said  that  fraternities
Institution stands for. In their 100
years of existence, he continued,
they have not shown themselves to
be particularly useful and constructive. "We don't want people here
treated as social outcasts," he
stated.
Lyon also charged that a greet
number of the frat and sorority
members at the meeting were "pre*
committed" so that the vote eoMttf
not be taken to stand fer the true
opinion of the student body on this
question. '

Today at 3 p.m. in the Brock Stage room, tb© LSE will
hold a major minor meeting, to which all clubs are urged
to send a representative.
For John de Wolf and his executive, it is the last meeting of the year, and one in which they plan to reshape the
structure of the LSE by forming four councils under the
LSE. These will be the service, arts, science, and general.
Each member of the executive will bring up his own
by-laws and the special events committee will be revised.

Bread And Circuses
t^Hli bread and circuses of ancient Ronie had nothing on
the show in UBC's armouries Thursday afternoon.
It will probably be several weeks before anyone quite
figures out what happened. But it's safe to conclude that most
of the four-hoyr show can be written off as entertainment.
4    The decision on athletics, for all its wishy-washiness,
ghows an incredible disregard for the purposes of a university.
If--tiie LSE is virtually obliterated students jurilJ have only
fhtmsejves tp Wame,
Probably most of them didn't know what they were voting for. But the decision, whether il was the result of deliberate confusion stage by Messrs. Sparling and Duclos, or the
eeiult of woolly thinking on the part of tho .students, will
likely be a subject of profound regret to anyone who still
clings to the ancient idea that we are here to search for Truth
and not simply to stage displays of animal exuberance.
The motion regarding Greek letter societies could scarcely have heen less meaningful had it been phrased in Hindustani.
The phrase "reasonable time" is one which ovien the most
learned lawyer would hestitate to tackle. Perhaps the faculty
ooUftcil will translate it into something with teeth. But we
won't blame them if they decide to file it in a bottom drawer
and pretend that it never happened.
One of the few wise decision was the vote to toss USC's
grandiose, power-mad, and skitzophrenic schemes into the
ashcan. It is to be regretted, however, that the meeting failed
to ratify the plan to replace sophomore and junior members
with members at large.
The posts were suitable in the days when UBC was a
hole-in-the-wall school with a handful of students and when
divisions into classes had some meaning. But they are scarcely more than a farce in 1952.
Here again we doubt that students had the foggiest idea
as to what the motion was all about. Perhaps they were wise
to reject what they couldn't understand.
Finally, we hope they enjoy rumaging through the reams
of fine print in next year Ubyssey printing contract.
If they can understand it without the aid of % lawyer they're
one up on us. ,     t„ ] $ 'g||f ,i,

GUIST EDITORIAL
Democratic Tenets
MODERN demoncracies function because their peoples
agree to observe certain practical norms of conduct
towards each other. The four freedoms, the democratic constitutions, the UN Declaration on National Rights are summaries of these basic practical norms.
But men want reasons and ultimate explanations why
they should accept and defend these basic democratic tenets.
They find these explanations, often contradictory ones, in
their various origins, traditions, cultures and religions. It is
the conviction in each individual of the value of democracy,
springing from these differing sources, that makes democracy
strong.
Some see only the other side of the picture, viz. the
friction and disunity which disagreement on the "why" of
democratic rights causes.
To attain unity, they would like to reduce as far as possible the influence of any groups or societies in the nation
Which give ultimate explanations, and replace this influence
by a sort of pragmatic and skeptical philosophy for all —
reduce everyone to a common level.
put men of conviction, not amorphous sceptics, do things,
propaganda fully realizes that men need noble convictions to
act. Americans are being convinced their destiny is to save
freedom for the world, while the Russians are being convinced that they are saving the worker and exploited from the
capitalists and imperialists.
Therefore democratic governments would seem to do
most toward strengthening the country by fostering with real
help the various tradations, religions and cultures of their
peoples. This is particularly true in the case of the Christian
religion, of whose spirit, with its stress on the value and freedom of the individual, democracy  is a natural expression.

CAMPUS
CINDERS
THERE is something about
an intra-mural track meet
that makes tho cinders run in
your blood.
1 don't know exactly what It ls—
the spring weather, the smell of
old sweat socks, the pulled mus
pies, the out-of-shape athletes, the
hysterically laughing spectators-
it all adds up to that certain un-
definable something that makes up
an Intra-mural track meet. and
thrills the heart of anyone who has
ever been shot in the ear with a
starting pistol.
William Wordsworth expressed
this feeling verx well when he
said:
My heart leaps up when 1 behold
A track meet ln the spring
After all Wordsworth was just a
frustrated half mller who had turned bookworm. In fact BUI carried
IiIh tneptness on the track to his
poem?. He had trouble catching
his second wind and usually faded
near the finish. He wasn't half the
man as was Browning who had a
tendency to sprint ^ear the tape.
But back to* our annual flaUfoot
contest. The Intra-mural track
meet is the time for all the once
a year athletes to come out and
show off the hair on their chest.
(Tarzan chest wigs, |2.98 in Batons.)
Pseudo athletes whose most sen-
uous exercises for months has been
, chasing some girl around a sorority table, put on tlidir spikes and
turn out for good old Beta Bucks.
s
THERE ls some doubt who
has the most fun at these
shindigs—the spectators or
the (to use the term very loosely)
participants? Many of the participants think that track ls what you
yell when yon run through the Caf
at 12:30 with a loaded tray; like
"fore" on the golf course. Many
of those who ran this week thought a 220 was a giant economy-
sized "26" but that didn't stop
them from tearing a tendon or
putting themselves ln a TB ward
for the rest of their lives.
One contestant showed up at tho
broad jump.pit with a copy of The
Sexual Behaviour of the North American Male clutched ln his grimy
little fiat and eagerly asked "Well,
where are the broads?'
Of course there are a few traitors who train for the meet but.
thoy are always so far oui la front
at llie finish that the crowd limping or being carried in wheelbarrows across the finish line.
Contestants who trained all winter on caf coffee found they couldn't stand up to the strenuous pace
set by the nature boys. A pre-med
student solved this problem by
doping the boys and giving them
shots under the stands betoie
each race.
This system worked fine until
a Sigma Bulla member got punch-
drunk on the stuff, jumped over the
football goalposts Instead of the.
high jump standards and then.mls-
taklng the shotput foi' a sofiball,.
tried to throw lt to a friend and
broke his arm in  Hires places.
The Ingenious pre-med student
also experimented with ah electric
stimulator, slmiliar to the type
used under the saddle blanket to
give a 50—J shot a jolt when they
hit home streach.
1 1110 concealed the contraption, in a contestant's sweatpants
and turned on the juice when the
starters gun went off. The runner
look off like a V2 roket but was
going too fast to take, the corner,
lie was travelling at a terrific clip
when he smashed into the solid
concrete grandstand with life bea;
Luckily he was an Kngineer and
so wasn't injured.
It's a strange thing why other
wise sane, normal, flat-chested students try to kill themselves once
a year iu the Intra-mural trad
meet. A clue as to the reasons I'lor
this strange behaviour was given
when a bedraggled competitor collapsed after lie had just done the
three mile high hurdles with thr
throttle open  wide all the way.
"Way did9 you do It?" a spectator asked him as the Vancouvei
Inhalalor Crew pumped precious
oxygen Into his little shrivellcd-
up. nic-otine-coutetd lungs, "there'*-,
no  prize."
'Well I heard Hick yenn took
first in this race a couple of yeais
ago and look what lie won --.Marjorie Miller."

World Cup Series
Sched. Next W^ek
The second half of the UBC-California World Cup series is
scheduled for varsity stadium next Thursday and Saturday,
when the UBC Thunderbirds and California Bears, two of the
finest rugger teams on the continent clash.
Birds  Invaded California at the • ' T
ACTION AS pictured above is in store for the Thunderbird soccer squad over the week
end as they play two crucial games on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
BIRD SOCCER ELEVEN
FACES GRUELLING WEEKEND
The campus's number one soccer team, the Thunderbirds.
face a stiff weekend having two games in two days. These week
end games are crucial ones for the Birds for if they are to
emulate last season's achievement in winning the Coast B
League they must win all their six remaining games.
On Saturday afternoon at Mem
orial Park' the Birds clash with
the last place South Hill squad
and on Sunday afternoon meet the
strong Sapperton eleven at Sapperton.
Birds should meet with little
trouble In Saturday's encounter
but Sapperton will present no
small difficulty. Last week-end the
unpredictable Sapperton scpiad trounced the league leading Collingwood Athletics,»to hinder the Collies chances of taking the championship.
Collingwood have a six point margin over the second place Birds
but have only three games remaining whereas Birds have six.
If Birds lose any of these six ! ln a very strong second division
games their ambition of being pro-land Chiefs have their best oppor-
moted Into the Coast League will; tunlty to break Into the scoring
have to wait until next season.      column,
CHIEFS GUNNING  FOR WIN
On Sunday the UBC Chiefs play
their second last game of the season ^gainst Firefighters. Although
the Chiefs have gone through the
year winless they bave been improving every game. Coach Ed.
I.uckett has experimented constantly with the line up and in last
week's game against North Var
Celtics came up with a squad that
satisfied   him.
Then too the young Chiefs were
badly out of condition but have
responded gamely to Coach Luck*
ett's rigorous work outs. Firefighters  are  o'ne of the  poorer  teams
UBC Enters
Finals For
OB Allan Cup
UBC after a surprising 9-2 victory over North Shore last Saturday, and the lucky draw of a bye
In the semi finals enters the finals for the O.B. Allan Cup. UBC's
Hugh Payne and Roger Hooten-
Fox repeatedly broke through the
opposition's defence and each tallied four goals. Robin Alston, Dave
Armit and Peter Lowes starred in
the defence.
At the same time Varsity, the
other university team, lost, a tough
one 2-0 to the league-leading East
Indians. Tbe East. Indians meet
Vancouver 'A' ln the semi-finals
on Saturday, and the winner comes
up against UBC the following week
This Saturday UBC meets Varsity In a league match starting at
beginning of tho month and played two games against the Bears.
Reputedly the best team in the
history of the university, Bears
expected aa repetition of last year's
game when Birds were slaughtered
in '■' straight games nnd only man-
figed to tie the fourth. Birds, however, won ithe initial encounter
8-:'. but lost the second 5-3 thus
leaving the land of sunshine with
a two point margin to be carried
to the remainder of the series.
Whether or not Bears can make
good their boast will be seen In
next week's matches. They undoubtedly have an exceptionally
good team but of late have been
plagued   with   Injuries.
Former Australia International
Bryan Piper, who was Injured in
the second UBC game will probably miss the trip but the re9t
of Bear cripples, ex-Thunderblrd
Bill Saines, scrum half Nick Velit-
tes, Lowell Paul and tho other
Aussie ace Max Howell should be
fit.
Tbe second division Braves play
at Douglas Park at 2:00 against
the Meralomas second division
squad.
