Pharmacy Here
By September
WITH A donation of $75,000 on
hand for a building, Board of
Governors expects to establish a
School of Pharmacy at University
of British Columbia for the September, 1946, term.
Announcing this Tuesday, the
Extension Department said the
school would be for first-year
pharmacy students only ln 1946-7,
and for second-year students also,
the following year.
The $75,000, donated recently by
G. T. Cunningham, would partly
finance the planned pharmac)
building. However, the school
would operate for Its first year at
least in temporary quarters.
The board of governors decided
to instruct architects to draw up
plans for a new Applied Science
building, a wing on the north side
of the Library and a Home Economics building as* well as the
pharmacy building.
February 14 was set as the date
for submission of tenders for the
planned Physics Building.

UBC Scholarships
Go To Chinese
TWO CHINESE students, flow
in China, have been offered scholarships by the University of British Columbia, Preeient N. A. M.
MacKenzie said Wednesday. U»ey
will come to UBC as soon as official permission is granted by the
Chinese government.
They are Pao Tza-chln, eon of
a former Chinese Consul-General
in Vancouver, and Miss Katherlne
Pao Tzs-chin, who has been
serving with the Chinese army,
graduated with senior matriculation from Kitsilano High School
in 1940. He entered UBC in that
year as a student of Commerce,
but returned to China xin 1941 to
complete his course at the Great
China University.
He intends to do post-graduate
work at UBC in international
trade. %
Both students are expected to
arrive for the 1946-47 sssslon.
MODERN and old time jazz will

Harris urged all members to
attend the program in the Brock
Stage Room at noon.
Campus Legionnaires Active In
Occupation Of Hotel Vancouver
WHEN a veterans' committee took over the old Hotel
Vancouver last Saturday, officers of UBC branch, Canadian
Legion, played an important part. Tony Greer, branch
president, was one of six Legion leaders who reached an
agreement Monday with Veterans' Affairs Minister Ian
Mackenzie on operation of the hotel.
Greer said on Tuesday the joint
Legion committee which directed
the occupation would relinquish
control as soon as the Citizens'
Rehabilitation Council was officially put in charge.
Speed of government action
after the veterans; moved into the
hotel demonstrate:!, Greer declared, that "something could have
been done months ago." He described the Legion move as "a
last resort to bring the matter before the public."
"After that, a two-hour meeting
with Ian MacKenzie got action."
Greer sat on the joint Legion
committee  in charge of the move
Grant Livingstone, executive
member of the UBC branch, and
Ray Dewar, employment committee chairman, wjrc members of a
staff committee in the hotel. A
number of other UBC members
took  part.
Gordon Kersey, UBC branch
secretary, said he did not know of
any members who were living in
the hotel, but the housing committee of the branch intended to
register any student-veterans who
wished to move there.
LEADERS of Labor-Progressive and Progressive-Conservative groups on the campus still awaited yesterday a
decision on application for permission to organize political
clubs at University of British Columbia.
Board of Governors on Monday
night postponed making a decision
on the question, passed on to it
recently by the Students' Council.
Sid Zlotnik, speaking on Tuesday
for the LPP side, told the Ubyssey:
"Our attitude is well known on
the campus—we favor open political clubs. We are looking for a
favorable decision."
O r a n t Livingstone, whose application for permission to form
a Progressive-Conservative club
followed an LPP request for permission to organize, declared: "We
don't want party politics at UBC,
but if anyone else insists we can
promise them they will find an
aggressive opposition."
Zlotnik said there was a precedent for campus political organizations "in at number of outstand-
Council Will Buy
100 Grad Gowns
PURCHASE of 100 more black
gowns for graduates was decided
on Monday night by the Students'
Council, President Allan Ainsworth announced.
Students' Council already has
134 in stock. With about 500 students expected to need gowns
this year at graduation ceremonies,
many will still have to supply
themselves elsewhere.
No reservations for the gowns
may be made yet at the AMS
office, Garry Miller, treasurer,
stated. Date for reservations will
be announced.
The gowns cost about 66 each.
Graduating students merely borrow them for the ceremony.
APPROVAL of a proposed student-graduate campaign for a war
memorial at University of British
Columbia was approved Monday
by the Board of Governors.
In comment President N. A. M.
MacKenzie said: "The board is
very appreciative of the continuing
interest in UBC of students and
ulumni as instanced by their proposal to institute a campaign for
a war memorial.
"The board hopes that their
efforts will meet with success, and
its members are most anxious to do
anything they can to assist the
committee responsible."
Form that the memorial would
take was not indicated.
OF INTEREST to the winter
session students is the tutoring
service which is available to any
who desire it. This is a volunteer
service and names of tutors may
be obtained from the AMS office.
Several students are here on the
compus after Christmas exams,
owing to the help they received
from the tutors.
More volunteers for this service
are required. Anyone interested
in tutoring is asked to submit his
name and phone number to the
in    universities—Oxford,    Cambridge, Harvard and others."
He said he had written to other
universities to learn their stand
' on fhe question.
Livingstone, prime minister of
the Parliamentary Forum, declared: "Our stand is simply that we
do not welcome partisan political
activity on th* campus ef UBC
and do not wish to see it authorised."
"But we feel that if any other
party is to be allowed the privileges of spreading partisan propaganda and of recruiting membership
on the campus, then naturally we
and all other parties will have to
follow suit."
Allan Ainsworth, AMS president, indicated there might be a
decision this week.
NEXT WEEK'S What is Your
Opinion topic will be "Race Prejudice". Articles must be typewritten, double-spaced, and handed
into the Publications Board office
by Tuesday, 1:30 p.m.
Two Scenery Shop
Sites Proposed
NORTH OF the Armoury or
west of the West Mall in line with
the auditorium are the two proposed sites for the new scenery
shop, as announced by stage committee chairman, Fred Lipsett.
A building 50 by 50 feet, Instead
of the one 52 by 44 feet previously
planned, will give greater storage
space, Lipsett said.
Lipsett has interviewed Lieut.-
Col. G. M. Shrum, head of the
Extension Department, on the
matter, and is now investigating
the complete costs for each site.
The stage committee hopes to
have the administration share thc
expenses by installing the services
of heating, lighting, and plumbing.
Within the next month or six
weeks construction should begin.
Scenery sets and stage properties
will find a haven in the shop, safe
from exposure to the great number who frequent the auditorium
stage and scenery room at present.
March the UBC Camera Club will
hold a salon which will be open
to all students.
A professional photographer will
judge the entries and the top five
from each class will be displayed
in the Brock Building.
The classes are: scenes, portraits,
sportshots, still life, color and
tinted, and miscellaneous.
Each picture must be accompanied by a contact print, showing
the original negative.
There is no limit to the number
of pictures each person may submit. Entries may be submitted to
the Club.
Crerar Urges
More Learning
CLAIMING that "there can be
nothing more important than a
sound knowledge of ethics and
civics, and of national and local
political machinery," General H.
D. G. Crerar ,ln a speech to 1000
veterans in the Auditorium Tuesday noon, urged that Canada
should start a program of education on current affairs.
"Our experiences of war have
revealed the danger and futility
of shallow thinking and selfish
action," said General Crerar in
praising the Canadian army's practice of conducting regular discussion periods on matters of current events.
"I believe the Canadian army
helped to develop a national outlook ln the men, and that we must
continue to become more and
more Canadian, and less and less
provincial if we are to develop
into a great and powerful nation,"
he told student veterans.
Gen. Crerar also stressed the
need for establishing some system
of physical examination for all
"The results of army medicals
have a wider significance than
merely military," he said in emphasizing the fact that results
showed a 'staggering need' for
the Implementation of medical and
dental care througout fhe nation.
"I submit that such a plan
would contribute immensely to the
health and happiness of Canada,"
he stated.

Art Mystery
MYSTERY of a large painting
delivered to the office of Allan
Ainsworth, AMS president, last
week, was solved on Tuesday when
Mrs. Eva Bene, post-graduate student, informed Ainsworth she had
donated the picture to UBC.
The picture, a 17th century
Flemish work with additions by
French classicists of the 18th century, represents Venus and
Angels and roses in the picture
were added by the French, Mrs.
Bene said.'
Mrs. Bene, now studying psychology, came here from Hungary
eight years ago.
Her father, an art collector, sent
her the picture before the war.
No artist's name is on it.
Mrs. Bene said she understood
the picture would be displayed
eventually in one of the new
buildings planned for UBC. Ainsworth did not know what its temporary location would be.
WITH APPLICATIONS for prefabricated homes made
by more than 200 student-veterans on Tuesday, university
authorities are investigating means of getting the houses built
here, Canadian Legion officers said yetserday.
The applications were made after
a meeting of more than 400 veterans in the Auditorium Tuesday
noon, at which John MacKenzie,
Legion housing committee chairman, and Dave Brousson explained
plans for the homes.
Urgency of the student-veterans'
housing plight was shown, MacKenzie said, by the fact that nearly
all the applicants stated they would
pay one year's rent ($300) In advance to help finance the scheme.
Answers to queries about the
applicants' present accommodation
showed graphically, MacKenzie
said, the desperate need for the
"pre-fab" plan.
He urged other student-veterans
in need of homes to apply at Hut
33 before the end of the week.
Applications are from married men
or those planning marriage.
Two types of house are being
considered: the "Speedibuilt," a
movable dwelling of three or four
rooms, and a house sponsored by
the Citizens' Rehabilitation Council.

Sales Friday
FIRST ISSUE of the Thunderbird, UBC's new quarterly magazine, will go on sale on the campus
Friday morning, in the quad box
office, the cafeteria, and the AMS
Price will be 25 cents. Only
2,000 copies are on sale. Distribution will be handled by fhe Mamooks.
The magazine, which has been
simmering slowly in uie Publications board office since October,
contains 24 pages of student contributions.
Three widely different short
stories, varying narrative comedy,
comedy to stream of consciousness in style, are featured, along
with feature articles on President
Norman A. M. MacKenzie, Greg
Kabat, and Lister Sinclair.
For students of serious literature
or philosophy there is a condensation of a report presented to the
Letters Club on the works of
Aldous Huxley, an interview with
a prominent English philosopher
and statesman, and several poems,
many empresslonlstic in style, but
including a parody of T. S. Eliot
entitled "The Journey of the Students."
Humorous features include an
article on atoms by Denis Blunden, who probably knows less
about the atom than any other
living man, and a modernized
version of "Little Red Riding
Art is represented with a lino-
cut by G. E. Webb, with cartoons
by Doug Campbel at the other extreme.
Students interested in contributing to the next issue, to come out
near the end of March, are asked
to hand their copy in to the Pub
office before March 1.
The first issue will give an indication of the type of publication
the Thunderbird ls to be, but in
no way gives any limits to varieties of material acceptable.
Several wide fields which could
be dealt with in the magazine are
untouched in tne first issue, including controversial material of
any sort, and articles dealing with
campus institutions, traditions or
activities which would be of interest to students.
EARLY FORMATION of a unified employment bureau at University of British Columbia, with
a full-time paid director, was
approved Monday by the Board of
UBC Extension Department, making this announcement, stated that
the board was taking steps to
establish the bureau in time to
serve students seeking summer
employment. The board is seeking
a director for the bureau,
employment committee, staff of the
given by the student employment
bureau, by UBC branch of the
Canadian Legion and by the faculties would be placed in the hands
ol the new bureau.
The board's  decision  was made
after  it  received  briefs from  the
Students' Council and UBC branch
of the Canadian Legion.
Allan Ainsworth, AMS president,

director should be aided by undergraduate committees, the Legion
empolyment committee, staff of the
present bureau and a committee of
Arguments for the expanded
bureau, presented by the AMS
brief, included:
1. Provision of summer and postgraduate employment is urgent, as
about 80 percent of students need
to work to get through university.
When government-financed veterans no longer made up a large
part of the enrolment, registration
would fall greatly unless students
had sure means of finding work.
2. The service would be a means
for eliminating criticism of the
large movement of Canadian university graduates to the United
Ainsworth said the existence of
a permanent, expanded bureau
would be of great interest to high
school   graduates.
Most British Columbia students,
he believed, were inteerstcd in
finding employment In this province. Development of Important
secondary industries here would
depend on their remaining, he
The Legion proposed a student
committee, with the Undergraduate
Societies' committee as nucleus, to
gather Information for the new
bureau to work on. It suggested
that employers be surveyed to find
their present and future needs.
Mentioning the possibility of
holding a mass meeting of students
to discuss the employment question,
Ainsworth declared that widespread enthusiasm was needed in
the student body if the co-operative job-finding program were to
be a success.
"AMS is willing to assist financially in setting up the bureau,"
he added, "although it will be

.  .   .  EDITORIAL PACE   .   .   .
Building, building, everyone has a proposed building for the campus tucked up
his or her sleeve, figuratively speaking.
The Canadian Legion Housing Committee
is publicly cogitating about one hundred
pre-fabricated homes for veterans to spring
up "somewhere near the university," the
soon-to-appear physics. building has burst
into blueprint, and a news story on our
front page today tells us that an announcement of a university war memorial building,
is soon to rush from the lips of a joint
student-alumni committee, which, the press
release informs us, has been doing much
work for the past month.
The alumni have also been mumbling in
their Graduate Chronicle beards about the
plans of the forthcoming womens' residences,
and whether they should be planned for
quantity or quality.
The whole mumblety-jumblety has resulted in the lamentable fact that students,
particularly in respect to student to student
construction projects, wonder, every time
they see a hat, just who is going to pull a
building out of it,—and when.
The greatest amount of confusion has been
disseminated by a front page story in last
Thursday's Ubyssey, calling for "a flood of
student suggestions for the Brock expansion
plan" and announcing grandiosely that there
were to be two Brock buildings for the
university. The story also prods would-be
student suggesters impatiently by insisting
that the Brock planning committee would
like to present plans to city architects within
a month.  And every time a workman passes
by carrying a hammer and a few nails,
students are accustomed to say to each other
sagely, "There he goes to lay the cornerstone
for the new Brock.   Let's follow him."
This is worrying the students' council and
they hasten to explain thai they are merely
calling for architectural suggestions from
the student body as to what the Brock Hall
expansion should entail and what it should
include. Plans of tentative student proposals
would be submitted to city architects for the
necessary estimate in cost, and that is all.
Precautions are being taken to insure that
students, on the basis of their experience,
list what they feel are the facilities needed
most, so the building committee will have
something to rely on when future students
insist crossly that they would rather have
had fur-lined telephone booths and pool halls
instead of club rooms and dial service in
their building.
Another thing that is worrying the students' council is that no one knows that in
the event that a joint student-alumni committee announces a war memorial project
within the next two years and that project
does not happen to be an extension to Brock
Hall, they will do an " Alphonse and Gaston"
act and let the war memorial committee go
ahead first with its plans. That is if the joint
student-alumni committee sees fit to recommend a building, which will probably be very
likely, as students of the University of British
Columbia, who have already sponsored four
different drives, seem to have contractors'
blood in their veins.
A whole generation of British Columbians
have now graduated from the University,
and the amount of time necessary for every
university to become possessors of a strong
alumni association has elapsed here. Our
alums, a living part- of university history
who did just as much as the government in
development of UBC, are a powerful group,
and their opinions carry more weight than
even they think.
It is only right that the alums should
solicitously watch every move of the now
adolescent university, which they perambulated in its infant stages out to Point Grey
from the Fairview shacks and pushed
through the "awkward age!' made more
difficult by depression and lack of public
interest, by vigorous student campaigns.
But both the times and the attitudes of
the students have changed from the days
when students had to snatch what they could
get in the way of development before the
promise turned out to be a mirage. That's
why there is a slight bit of friction apparent
now as a result of alumni comment on the
proposed womens' dormitories.
Personally, we're just as glad that we
started the. Ubyssey "What Is Your Opinion"
forum, and we hope that the majority of
the student body feels that way too.
In an informal poll of five hundred students selected recently at random by reporters, a majority gave the nod of approval
to the forum and many suggested several
topics which they considered should be discussed. Examples were "Russia," "The
French-Canadian Problem," "Fraternities"
and "Chlorination."
We're happy about the whole thing ourselves.
More students are reading the paper.
More students are writing for the paper. We
seem to be cramming our news and our
forums into the Ubyssey, both at the same
time. We're getting more letters to the
editor.   And we seem to be unearthing more
The alum are nice about the whole thing,
but they feel that a utilitarian, semi-permanent dormitory would be preferable to a
more permanent «and more expensive
structure which would house less people.
Their main grief seems to be that a basement
for recreational facilities and a "Shampoo
room," a sore point, will replace a floor which
might accommodate approximately 65 more
women. They also favor double rooms, and
rent placed at a lower cost in a low cost
building so that "their low cost will help
compensate for the transportation costs of
the university."
Personally, we would like to disagree.
Semi-permanent buildings were necessary
to put the university on its feet, and shutting
our eyes to the army shacks on the campus,
we feel that the days of semi-permanent
building are definitely past.
On with the permanent structures, which,
more costly now, will still be paying off a
hundred years from now. If the university
is not able to establish permanent structures
in what is probably the greatest year of its
expansion, it will probably never do so.
People are catching on to the idea. The
original plan was to throw open a spot in
the Tuesday and Thursday papers for
student discussion on topical points. Students had complained that we hadn't given
enough space to student opinion; we had
protested that we had neither the opinions
nor the space.
We are announcing our fourth panel topic
in this issue. It will be "Racial Prejudice,"
suggested for review by an overwhelming
number of students. Additional ideas will
be welcomed.
Make your contribution short, 700 words
at the most, and keep the deadlines which we
announce with each topic in mind, as we
have to limit the discussion on each subject.
You can always write a letter to the editor
after, if you miss a panel.
Ruby*s Publicity
Dear Madam:
There has been much talk of late
about anti-fraternity and anti-
soroiity feeling on the campus.
Whether or not this was jusitfiecl
previously, there can be little
doubt left in the minds of most
students at UBC after the magnificent display of pettiness and
snobbery in connection with Ruby
Dunlop's being elected Queen of
the Mardi Gras.
There can be no excuse for the
lack of publicity in downtown
newspapers, and even less'for the
Ubysey "write up," insulting in
its brevity.
The contrast with sorority
queens' publicity in previous
years only serves to emphasize
the discrimination against this
year's freshette queen. And yet
some people seem unable to understand why there should be any
animosity toward the Greek Letter Societies.
If those responsible considei
their coverage adequate, I can see
no possible objection to having
their   names   published   in   the
Ubyssey,  in order that they may1
receive the credit they deserve.
Yours truly,
Bob Harwood.
EDITOR'S NOTE: In answer to
.several letters on this subject
which space did not permit us to
print: Ruby's picture was held
for Saturday when it will appear
with the "Beauty-on-the-Spot."
We would like to point out that
pictures or stories on queens elected during the past few years were
quite absent from our columns.
As for pre-Mardi Gras publicity,
please speak to publicity chairman of the Mardi Gras committee.
Plaguey Plaque
Dear Madam:
I note with some interest the
fact that our Student Council have
announced their intention of floating a bond issue for $100,000.00 for
the erection of another recreation
Such ambition naturally pleases
me, yet I cannot see how this plan
can be put into effect by people
who consistently fail to carry out
plans, that have been promised in
the past.
I refer, of course, to the bronze
plaque of dedication to Dean and
Mrs. Brock, called tor m the plans
of the present Brock Hall, and for
which a special niche was made
in the front of the building.
This plaque snould be placed
there immediately. Council should
translate their promises into action, before launching such an
ambitious project.

Dear Madam:
Please publish the following ln
your paper. t
We never thought we would be
surprised at anything published
in your paper, but in your contemptible method of handling the

TO ANYONE who reads a newspaper, the veterans' sit-down
strike in Hotel Vancouver is old
potatoes; but it proved very interesting to us, because for thc
first time in our lives we got t>
peek behind the scene that made
the week-end's headlines. Perhaps
you'd like to come back-stage with
us for awhile.
We had often wondered why
people like to be reporters. We
couldn't credit that printers'-ink-
in-the-blood theory, of course, and
decided that some-day we would
do some real sociological investigation. We didn't nave to wait
long for a first class case.
It was last Saturday afternoon.
and Jim and ourselves were trying to decide whether or not to
drop into the Georgia when the
phone jangled. It was our correspondent at CKWX, breathless, for
a change.
"Get over to the Hotel," he
shouted. "Sit-down strike." He
hung up.
Well, Jim was game, so we headed along toward the Hotel. We
expected picketing end riot squads.
But there was none of that either
and we decided it/must be a veterans' show and not a Capital-
Labor Revolution.
Spiritual Support
A couple of policemen were
standing near the door, but they
made no sign of Intention to
strike-break us, so we got in all
light. Though the tODby ot the
once-grand building was dull and
heaped with rubble and old
boards, we made out several people. A couple of ladles approached
us and asked us nicely:
"Are you with us?"

"We're glad to have sympathizers," said the pretty one. "You'll
find the rest upstairs, if you'd like
to go up." Jim smiled back at
her, but she had some other business to attend to and left us.
The   next  person  we   ran  into
was our old pal Bill Tutte, a former UBC boy who writes most of
the news you hear# on CKWX.
Without looking up, he mumbled

It seemed to be a race to see
v/hich reporter could get the most
down. The Press, incidentally including Jim any myself, outnumbered the vets 3 to one. Jim pretended he was from the Kitsilano
Times and we grunted something
about the Tokio Herald. However,
no-one bothered us.
We went upstairs, eventually,
and found a meeting going on.
Photoflash bulbs brightened the
second-floor corridor continually.

sure it was accidental, he looked

Presently a couple of radio station attendants crawled by, carrying 700 pounds of equipment. Ian

It just goes to show you. With all

Political Parties Again
the development of great parliamentarians and I think that political clubs here at UBC could foster men equally capable who could
give us leadership in the parlous
years ahead.
Yes, let us have political clubs,
parades, pamphlets and all. They
may help to dispel Mr. Klenman's
hazy fairyland.
Speaking of Mr. Klenman, how
anyone who starts an article with
a screamingly funny line like "I'll
bet a barrel of monkeys to dead
goldfish" has the cold nerve to re-
fer to anyone as hau-baked, as he
does at the end of his whole astounding article, is beyond me.
As a sample of Mr. Klenman's
clarity and coherence, let me quote
two consecutive sentences from his
article: sentence one "Keep politics off the campus," sentence
two "Bring speakers of every
group and faction out to talk to
us," The rest of Mr. Klenman's
article is even more illogical. Fie
on you Mr. Klenman! Back into

In closing may I again emphasize
that no mordant fear of politics

there is' going to stop political activity on the campus. Furthermore,
political activity, no matter how
distasteful some of its manifestations have been, is the very blood
and breath of our democracy. Let's
have lots of it, let us encourage its
growth and above all let us make
such activity a provocation to
ourselves to think, and think clearly, about who shall lead us and in
what way, in facing ihe enormous
issues of these times.
Yours truly,

Dear Madam:
In Saturday's Ubyssey, under
the query "Political Parties on the
Campus?" which I presume is
asking whether we should or
should not have them, you invited
students to submit their views on
the subject. Here, for what they
are worth, are mine.
I hate to shock you, Madam,
but your query is out of date.
Madam there already ARE political parties on the campus.
Perhaps no sad-eyed intellectual
deputation with proletarian
crumbs of bread and cheese in its
collective whiskers has as yet
penetrated your cloistered lair in
the bowels of the Brock, but I,
drifting quietly around the campus, have had numerous serious
verbal encounters with young men
and women who believe that socialism is the cure-all for our
troubled times and who honestly
conceive it their patriotic duty to
convert me (I have a vote) to
their position. Equally I have had
solemn young men, Union Jack
firmly in hand, endeavor to explain (unsuccessfully) the differ
ence between Liberal and Conservative.
This ancl similar stuff I presume
to be political activity on behalf
of political parties. Although I
am not as yet converted I find this
political (horrible word) activity
most stimulating and I believe that
if the AMS will pull its head out
of the sand and assist these groups
in forming clubs, the university will be better enabled to become a cradle off real democracy,
which after all should be its first
Mr. Daykin, in his well written,
thought-provoking article, has
pointed out how political clubs at
Oxford and Cambridge encouraged

I AM convinced -that political clubs are a necessary part
of University life and should be formed here at UBC. My
reasons for taking this position arc as follows:
First, I think that as University students, we should
recognize ihe fact that a University is not an institution set
apart from society. It should be an integral part of any
country's life and should be one of the leading groups in
THE MOST RIDICULOUS task a returned Canadian
could find is pleading for freedom of political action. Yet
there appears to be some doubt of the existence of the
Atlantic Charter in the eyes of the Alrriii Mater Society, so
this article is indeed necessary. Let us look at the matter
without derision (if possible)
come to a reasonable
Th common excuses for fettering political activity on the campus have been cause for hilarity'
both in the press and the recent
debate. Nevertheless, they have
been presented to the public as
logical contentions and must be
treated as such. As listing them in
order of merit would require the
assistance of a psychopathic specialist — let us number them.
1. Political  clubs would detract
from studies.
2.. Wealthy students might spend
large campaign sums.
3. Party organizers might come
to the campus as students.
4. Politics taint campus life.
5. We are in search of truth and
knowledge and must read our
textbooks in an impartial light.
These arguments themselves
give evidence of their origin. Beyond doubt the people behind
them are from the world of books
and do not feel ready to graduate
into the world of reality. On the
other hand those of us who have
spent the war years on the campus of life are not prepared to
bury our heads in the sands of

In the January 17, 1946 edition of

that he is leaving his position as

I will cheerfully trade places

will even rent him my tent for a

in "tainting" their undergraduates
with political id*»-.s -Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard—not to mention our own colleges in Saskatoon
and Montreal. As we ponder the
problems of Canada and the world
we would do well to remember
the great statesmen that must
come from our universities.
Experience is the best professor
we have on the campus. If we
are not allowed to tackle our own
problems and overcome them we
shall be left out of contact with
our most vital national problems.
Housing conditions and unemployment will become statistics to us.
Instead of organizing to battle
these problems we will become
dreamers theorizing on them.
While children are going hungry
we will be debating on the effects
of social consciousness on unemployment. While new wars are
Incubating we will be ruminating
on "attitudes."
Going back to the controversy of
political clubs. Do the makers of
uiversity regulations dare to tell
any returned man that he has not
complete political freedom on the
campus? A year ago in Italy and
Europe we hardly hoped to get
back here to enjoy our 'freedoms.
Now we are back only to be Insulted with the puerile antics of
certain college elements.
There is not room enough here
to detail fields of po.itical interests
for the veteran. He has had so
many Utopian plans offered him
in the war years that broken promises seem to lie about like derelict vehicles after battle. Yet now
there are those among us who
would even deny him the right to
take to task the people responsible.
This university Is made up of a
large proportion ot student veterans. Let us not forget they are
mahire. They are adults. To be
treated like school children will
not help their adjustment to normal life. Will the Board of Governors consider this in the future?

We sometimes think of a university only as an institution
which provides us with an education leading to future job. On
the whole, most of us are faced
with the necessity of earning a
living, and we readily recognize
the importance of a specialized
education In determining our future life work.
But do we consider the university as being more than a glorified
education factory which is mass
producing people with the technical equipment necessary to undertake specialized jobs? And do
we consider an education as being
more than the things we learn in
lectures and labs?
Students at UBC hold responsibilities of Canadian citizenship.
Being students does not exempt
them from these responsibilities.
This may sound strange, but
one of a student's special responsibilities is that of becoming educated.   By being educated, I mean
being able to take one's place in
society an an aware, thinking
useful person. This involves—as
far as we ara concerned—not only
the acquisition of technical skills
but also an awareness of the
economic and political problems
which face Canadians today.
If graduates from UBC are to
take their places in society as
leaders, they musi oe educated—
and political education should be
a part of their education.
Most students attending UBC
know little about politics. There
are a number of reasons for this—
the most Important being the fact
that students do not, as a rule,
have enough free tune to join a
political party, take an active part
in it and understand its basis,
policies, and program.
If political clubs were organized
on the campus, students would be
able to attend political discussions
and meetings much more easily.
THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, January 31, 1946, Page 3
would, I feel, be more likely to
interest students in politics than
would the approach of political
groups off the campus.
At present, Canadian university
students do not play a leading
part in the political life of thc
country because their education in
this area his been sadly neglected.
The European universities have
always been not only centres ot
learning but also centres of any
social movements and reforms
that have taken place. This should
apply to UBC. Does it?
In conclusion, I would repeat,

VARSITY'S pucksters came
through with another one of their
not too uncommon, sweeping victories over the week-end by defeating Pacific Veneer 14-0.
After a hectic first two minutes
when one of the Pacific Veneer
forwards tried to clip Owen Wood-
side with a well swung stick, Varsity settled into the play and within
four minutes had netted their first
counter by Hug Berry.
This was followed by goals by
Bill Buhler and Jim O'Brien, and
then to finish the first period Hugh
Berry came back out to score two
well-earned goals, giving him a
total of three goals and giving
Varsity a lead of 5-0.
Throughout the balance of the
game it was just a question of how
many goals Varsity would score.
The second period appeared very
one-sided with Varsity carrying
the play to the opponents for practically the whole of the period,
resulting in five more goals while
blanking the Pacific Veneers. Bill
Buhler countered a pair, and
O'Brien, Nelford, and Porteous
gathered one each.
The third period started off in
a similar vein and even though
Pacific Veneer managed to rally
up a much stronger defence, Varsity seemed to run into very little
trouble in going ahead and getting
four goals by Keating, Buhler and
Husband (2).
Bill Buhler and Hugh Berry were
the main sparks of the team for
the night with Buhler getting four
goals and two assists, and Berry
getting three goals and two assists.
Varsity will be playing the New
