Biggest Athletic Event In Years'
This weekend UBC students have the opportunity of witnessing the biggest athletic
event to take place on this campus in three
years. UBC Thunderbirds meet Alberta Golden
Bears in a .erics which may be the first step in
exclusively Canadian competition for this university.
In 1946 UBC withdrew from the Western
Canadian Intercollegiate Conference in both
basketball and football. This university then
became the only Canadian university in the
Pacific Northwest Conference, an organization
comprising small Washington and Oregon colleges.
In 1949 UBC moved up to the Evergreen
Conference, again the only Candian school in
the Beven-team league. After several years
as trial Evergreen members, UBC wnt winless
in their first official Conference basketball season.
Last year Birds racked up one win in
Evergreen competition. This year they upped
their win total to two. The highest mark the
football team has ever recorded ln the American conference is two wins and a tie.
Many UBC students feel that this university should withdraw from the Evergreen Conference and play entirely in Canada.
At the moment there is a tabled motion on
Alma Mater Society's books which would enter
UBC in Canadian intercollegiate competition if
that goal ever becomes a reality. Last fall UBC
took part in the first annual East-West football
game, playing McGill in Montreal. New Men's
Athletic Directorate president Bob Brady was
elected to office oh the platform of more Canadian competition for UBC.
This weekend UBC has the opportunity of
witnessing a series which Is the first long step
in the eventual ideal of Western Canadian in
tercollegiate competition. The University oi
Alberta Golden Bears will meet our Thunderbirds in the War Memorial gym in the best-of-
three series for tlje Intercollegiate Championship of Western Canada.
Alberta students on the campus will tell
you that Bears are one of the finest basketball
teams in Canada as they went to the national
final last year before bowing to Toronto Tri-
Bells. Admirers of the Birds will say that the
caliber of Jack Pomfret's team will finally be
seen in this series as UBC meets a Canadian
team instead of the vastly superior American
opponents who usually   desecrate   our   score-
This year Bears come calling with an impressive 19-1 record. The lone loss is to Harlem
Clowns, a touring pro team. Alberta revenged
the loss in the return game. Alberta admirers
claim that 6'7" Ed Lucht is the finest center
in Canada. Two weeks ago Lucht scored 88
points as Alberta walloped Uuivorsity of Saskatchewan 114-37. Big Ed has a 22.3 average for
his college career.
Coaching will be Maury Van Vlict, former
UBC coach who has found' gold in them thar
Alberta foothills. •
Thunderbirds have a 9-13 season record but
have lost only one game to a Canadian opponent. Big gun on the team is 6'5" forward John
McLeod wno has racked up a 16.8 average for
the 12-game Evergreen season. Checking Lucht
will be 6'3" Geoff Craig.
Bob Dinkel, Alberta NFCUS rep who is
visiting UBC, picks Bears by seven points after
three gam-is. MAD president Lusztig says, "If
our boys want to get in the right mood and if
they really want to win this game for the university, we will take it in two games."

Allan Goldsmith, AMS treasurer, pointed out that it would "be
more advantageous to get in

civic bodies throughout the province before approaching the
legislature with this problem.
Interest must be stirred up in the
province first."
Feltham went along with
Goldsmith on this matter. He
urged the Teachers to "use the
energy they would have used in
the first scheme in promoting
the housing question among responsible civic bodies in the province."

Bush League
It is common knowledge that as far as athletics go this
campus is still in the bush league. One of the reasons why
this is true was shown at the basketball game Saturday
It was Birds' final Evergreen Conference game. Three
players were playing the last Conference games of their university careers. Over 1300 fans, the largest crowd of the
season, turned out to watch a team that has won only two
Evergreen games.
Despite all this, there was no band at the game, no
cheerleaders, nor organization. No effort was made to inform the crowd of the fact that three graduating students
were playing their last official games lor UBCj no effort
was made to introduce the team.
Western Washington, the visiting team, brought up their
own cheerleader and cheering section. Western Washington
fans cheered their own team while 1300 fans shamfully sat
on their hands and watched a visiting school make this university look sick in the manner of supporting its team.
UBC probably has the unenviable record of being the
largest university in existence with no organized cheerleaders
oi- pep club. Earlier in the season high school girls stayed
over from preliminary games to inspire UBC fans. At no
time this season has the team been introduced to students
or spectators.
Next week-end University of Alberta Golden Bears are
the visitors here in a series for the Western Intercollegiate
championship. Athletic officials hope to pack the gym for
the games. After Saturday's disgusting performance it is
doubtful if that wish will come true. It is certain that games
won't continue to draw many spectators if the present slipshod method of running games is continued.
UBC teams will never get out of the bush leagues until
the athletic organization stops acting bush league.

Writ fiif Hand
Dear Gov't:
A Liberal member of the provincial legislature, Bruce
Brown (Prince Rupert), said Friday in the throne speech
debate that school supplies should be exempt from provincial sales tax. Mr. Brown commended the proposed exemption of children's clothes and shoes from the sales tax, but
felt that further exemptions should be made.
Removal of the sales tax from school books and sup-
lies would be a valuable step towards decreasing the high
cost of university education in this province. With a text book
rental system in effect in the public and high schools of the
province it is universtiy students who- bear the brunt of this
unnecessary tax.
Public and high school students do not have to pay the
sales tax on books when they rent books from the schools,
although they do have to pay the tax on notebooks and
supplies. University students have to both buy books and
pay the tax on them.
In Quebec, where a five percent sales tax is levied, text
books are sold tax free. This is one instance where B.C.
should follow the lead of Quebec. It is to be hoped that when
the Social Credit government brings down the budget next
week Mr. Brown's suggestion to remove the sales tax from
{,-hool supplies will be included in the legislation.
There Is A Difference
Proof that the smallest things have thn largest repercussions is being given as a squib in a January Ubyssey becomes famous. A Ubyssey report on the campus speech of
an CCF ex-MLA, Rod Young, has been quoted for advertising purposes by the British Columbia Federation of Trade
and Industry, arch CCF-policy critic, in the February edition of Western Homes and Living.
Speaking under CCF auspices, Rod Young told the
campus that "There is no difference between theoretical
Communism and Socialism." His statement was made the lead
of an unbiased Ubyssey story which did not neglect to
quote other remarks of Young, including his further description of Communists as "without principles and roots," and
"mentally sick."
Appearing as a photograph in the Trade and Industry
Federation advertisement, the story was carefully ripped off
just above the "mentally sick" quotation..
Under it, an attempt to interpret the story was made as
the advertiser concluded, "If you are one of the many British
Columbians who think there's no real similarity between
Socialism and Communism, this frank statement by a Vancouver Socialist (CCF) former member of Parliament will
warrant your thoughtful attention."
This interpretation is not valid of course, because of the
careful insertion of the word ."theoretical" by Mr. Young in
his statement. On paper, Communism, Socialism and every
other reform scheme is dedicated to human welfare. This
.similarity is the main one Mr. Young was noting.
Mr. Young was also noting another similarity of Socialism and Communism, that they both hope to achieve the
tnd of human welfare by government control of industry.
But the paper scheme differs from the real intentions Mr.
Young's reference to the mental illness of Communists indicates. In actual intent, in method of achieving the end and
tiie final structure of government, Communism and Socialism
differ violently.
If the Federation advertiser had gone on to quote the
rest of the Ubyssey story, in which Rod Young mentioned
ln>- opinion lhal Communists, "need the services of psychologists," he would have been forced to conclude that Young
admitted serious difference between Socialism and Communism in actual intent and methods of carrying out reform.
B.C.'s CCF party and UBC's CCF club are Fabian in
intent, attempting to educate the voters to an acceptance of
industrial control of the workingman. Far from preaching
world revolution and cataclysmic change, they hope progress will come through parliamentary decisions based on
enlightened public opinion.

Pres., CCF Club
Disagrees With Dean
Editor. The Ubyssey:
In Saturdav Night magazine
for Fb. 13 there appeared an
article bv S. N. F. Chant, Dean
of the Faculty of Arts and Science at UBC. an article entitled
"Reading and Writing; Vanishing Arts?" Dean Chant endeavoured to show that reading
and writing are indeed vanishing arts, and that our generation had better be prepared to
accent them as such, just as his
generation had to accept tho
vanishing horse and buggy.
lt is not the place of an Applied Science student to criticize a Dean of Arts, but when
Dean Chant uses his position as
an eminent educator to justify
a oiece of immature writing,
and when, furthermore, no
Arts students seem brave enough, or alert enough, to challenge their leader, even an Applied Science student may rise
in defense of accuracy, intelligence, and mature thinking.
Dean Chant claims that reading and writing have now
"passed the peak of their significance in human development
and are in decline." He imagines that spoken language,
books and letters recorded on
tape, will supplant reading and
writing in future society.
In support of these questionable statements he offers no
statistical evidence, except that
"numerous educationists now
talk over the radio more often
than thev write either books or
Evidently the Dean is overlooking the fact that radio is an
ideal medium for educationists
because their lack of profundity is unnoticed by an audience which is given no time to
reflect. '    • '
Furthermore. says Dean
Chant, reading and writing are
"cumbersome in comparison
with sooken language. They
are slow, and difficult to mas-
tpr." As a Dean ef Arts, he
should certainly know that one
can read faster than one can
talk. And I doubt that one
could understand an abstruse
philosophical or mathematical
work if it were given as a
speech. On wonders', too, how
he attained his present position
if he does not believe that any.
thing worthwhile is difficult to
In this list of the advantages
of spoken language is the statement that "the inaccuracies of
spelling and punctuation that
so many unwittingly commit
are precluded when speaking.'
Surely he does not believe that
the much more important mistakes in grammar and fallacies
are also precluded when speaking!
But Dean Chant's crowning
insult to intelligence is exhibited when he says that, as one
listens to one's tape recordings,
"one will fall gently off to
sleep with the lights off, while
the story goes on ... " No
doubt it wil be a shock to earnest and conscientious young
Arts students to learn that their
Dean believes the works of
Plato, of aKnt, of Dylan Thomas and T. S. Eliot are nothing
but soporifics, ideal sleeping-
pills. One can only hope that
this idea does not become characteristic of the Faculty of
Arts and Science as a whole.

time examining some prim" examples of this home-grown
talent. Jim MacNicol and Ralph Martinson wanted to take
a sample of this Californian culture home to display in the

John Newton was approached by a Hollywood talent scout
to appear on a radio quiz program. John, complete with lacrosse

Editor. The Ubyssey:
For the information of Mr.
CramDed Forter (Ubyssey Fridav. Feb. 26), who alleges that
in huts 8. 9,'10 and 11 of Fort
Camo there are 65 students confined to the use of a single
toilet and two wash basins;
here are a few facts. These
huts hold a total of 71 students
who have the use of two washrooms. One of these washrooms, presumably thc one
used bv Mr. Cramped Forter,
contains two basins and a toilet, the'other contains 8 basins,
three .toilets and also four
showers. This works out to approximately 9.1 basins and 3.7
toilets per 65 students.
If Mr. Cramped Forter lives
in one of the huts in question
and should wish to take a bath
some time, the washroom with
the showers is situated in the
basement of the dining hall.
Mr. Cramped il'orter alleges
that I will find nobody who
pretends that the huts are
warm enough in winter. If this
is true, then it should be easy
for him-to rise to the challenge
and show me a room which is
inadeauatelv heateed.
Do show me Mr. Cramped Forter. and I'll mail the board of
governors the $10 in the next

Adamson Charges WUS Reps
With Lack Of Interest
Lethargy has onco more been
deplored in campus politics,
this time in the Women's Undergraduate Society.
Nan Adamson, WUS president
has accused the Undergraduate
Society representatives to WUS
of undermining the efficiency of
that organization by their lack
of interest in its operation.
"WUS is not fulfilling its function on the campus," said Miss
Adamson, "because there is no
co-operation from the Undergraduate Society representatives.
There are two representatives
who haven't shown up at any
meetings this year "
As examples of this lack of
co-operation, the WUS president
cited the WUS Homecoming
float when only two members of
WUS did any work on it; the
president and the newly elected
president, Diane Driscoll. Further, on what is one of WUS'
most important functions, the
Fashion Show, only three members of the society aided in its
Diane Driscoll, new president
of the society pointed out that
WUS was supposedly a co-ordinating body, "but no problems of
any sort have been submitted
this year."
The lack of WUS meetings
this year has been attributed by
Adamson to the fact that "it was

examples where only two or

The problem was further
heightened for Miss Adamson by
the fact that last year's executive
left no trace of records for tho
incoming executive.
Driscoll has her own plan for
revitalizing WUS. She plans to
ask the various sororities and
clubs on the campus for suggestions regarding their opinions of
what WUS should do. According to the new president, co-operation is expected.

Seldom-heard music of contemporary composers was performed noon Monday by pianist
Mary Gillard and violinist El-
freda Sewell.
Sponsored jointly by the Fine
Arts Committee and the Music
Department, the two young artists played Hindesmith's Sonata
in E and Sonatina by the American composer Walter Piston.
Varying methods of the'Hirde-
smith piece built up to a lively
climax after an unimpressive
start. More balance between the
two instruments was displayed
in the Piston Sonatina, where
the adagio movement was especially moving.
Pianist Gillard played the
light Prelude and March by Pro-

and finesse.

United Nations to make any
headway without any effort on

The United Nations is an instrument. Chisholm said, and its
success depend on how we use it,
what kind of people we are, the
elimination of hate and prejudices.
Anarchy is threatening over-
populated countries unless they
get rid of millions, claimed Dr.
Chisholm and he considered the
taboos of certain governments
against suppression of population
one of the greatest threats to
peace and stability.
"The time is past when they
will die peacefully of starvation," Chisholm said.
Stating that the lag is in the
home not in the United Nations,
Dr. Chisholm urged people to
suppress their own prejudices.

Plan   Constitution Changes
General body of the AMS will vote on constitutional
changes in the framework of at least five undergraduate societies in the forthcoming general meeting in the armouries on
March 18.
Faculties of Commerce, Medi'fgi
cine, Agriculture, Teacher Training and Home Economics propose
to make their vice-presidents
their representatives on the Un-
dergradutae Societies Committee.   •
In the present system, USC representatives are appointed by
the executives of the various undergraduate societies.
By making the position of
USC representative an elected
post, the present USC hopes to
attract more interested students,
thus making the committee a
stronger force on the campus.
Faculties' of Engineering and
Physical Education are as yet
undecided on the move, while
Pharmacy is the only faculty
against it.

of Toronto passed a motion Feb.

UBC Gives Cal Gears
Special to The Ubyssey
BERKELEY, Calif.—March  1—UBC's  rampaging Thunderbirds roared back today in a tremendous upset as they
whipped California Bears 19-6 to take a commanding 31-22
lead in the four-game total points series for the World Cup.
Birds erupted with their best
display of the season as they
erased the 16-12 lead California
had taken in the first game here
Saturday. They return to UBC
with a healthy nine-point lead
for the two final World Cup
games March 25 and 27.
The routing was the first loss
handed the massive Bears this
year and it was the worst whipping UBC had given California
witlun memory.
Bob Morford, who almost personally beat Bears last year,
seemed determined to repeat the
performance today. After kicking a penalty Saturday, he added
r. try, a penalty and two conversions today to account for 10 of
UBC's 19 points.
Calilornian Alan Schmeiser
who was replacing injured John
Elsworthy, a native of Vancouver, scored all of Bears 10 points
in today's game.
UBC captain Bill Whyte scored two tries and Skip McCarthy
added another.
UBC scored three tries to Cal's
two. in the opening game, but
were unable to convert any of
the three while the Golden
Bears' Alan Schmeiser made
good on both of his conversion
attempts. Schmeiser also countered with two penalties) to run
his personal point total to 10,
while UBC's Bob Morford came
uo with one scoring penalty
The Varsitv forwards lived
up td exectations by outplaying
the Bears in both games, with
Derek Vallis standing out in a
pack of outstanding teammates. |
Captain Bill Whyte played at
both the standoff and fullback
positions with distinction, alternating with Stanilans.
However, in Saturday's contest the Birds seemed hesitant to
put  their kicks into touch and
thus found themselves at a disadvantage against the powerful
California opened the scoring
with an earlv penalty kick before wing John Newton finished
off a backfield run bv crossing
into oavdirt. Dave Morlty missed the difficult conversion to
leave the half-time count at 3-3.
A concentrated forward rush,
combined with a successful convert, earlv in the second frame
netted the challengers another
5 points to put them in an 8-3
Schmeiser parted    the    uprights  with  his second  penalty
attempt soon  after to  run  the
score o 11-3.
Morford's penalty boot narrowed the margin before the
Bears' brilliant Max Howell
showed the form that made him
an All-World selectee, making a
converted trv that put the Southerners in a short-lived 10 point
UBC staged a concentrated
rally that reaped its lust reward
when wing Jim Boulding crashed over the line. Morford nar-
rowlv missed countering with
the difficult convert.
Vancouver's final try was
made bv Morlev after Sandilans
had poo-kicked and then tackled
the receiving fullback—forcing
him to fumble. Morley, who
had been following up on the
plav. scooped up the rolling ball
and crossed the line to make the,
final score 16-12.
Op Op Op
The UBC Braves came up with
a 3-3 draw in their weekend
contest, against Ex-Techs, while
the third division Tomahawks
olaved their best game of the
season to shutout the Ex-Tech
seconds 14-0.
GOLDEN BEARS NORM Macintosh drives i n for a layup while brother Don (44) looks
on. The powerful Bears defeated the Harlem Clowns ip this game. Maury Van Vliet will
bring his charges here to play Birds in a best of three series for the mythical Western
Canadian Intercolegiate championship starting this Friday night in the War Memorial Gym.
The second game will go on Saturday night a nd the third game, if necessary, will be played
on Monday.
Birds Lose Twice;

It appears that UBC Thunderbirds have never read the
tices.    /-iinouan iviaci-eoa ana   ,• .       , ,-,,      ,    --    i «„ ,    .        aha        •  „«

Bv virtue of their double loss

my opinion that the fast forward from Alberta will definitely score as manv. if not more
points than MacLeod. It's
likelv that vour coach Pomfret
will use Bob Bone to check
down Macintosh. If Bone can
successfully check down Mac,
and I don't believe he can, the
Birds (I concede) may have a
chance of winning.
3. Another interesting aspect of this series is that Alberta also has a left-handed forward similar to MacLeod who
also specializes in left-hand
hook shots. This other Macintosh, namely Norm, will also
show Bia John a few tricks
enoueh for him to make the
trio (that is if his marks are
hieh enough).
4. The guard lines are fairly
even. At present, the way Upson sems to be holding back his

Chiefs, Win Again
As Birds Lose 4-1
Tho Birds bubble broko with a bang on the campus Sunday as they were trounced 4-1 by Colingvvood Legion for their
first soccer loss in five games.
Tne   loss     leaves     Varsity   in* •—  —	
fourth nlace in the "B" Division1
and ius' about puts an end to
the Birds' championship aspirations. With onlv a month left
Ed Luckett's team is a full ncvon
points behind the league-leading:
Collies. i
Varsitv could do nothing right
on Sunday as the gusty wind
seemed to disrupt their attack.
Thev failed to match their form
ot recent games except for a
brief instant in the second half,
and Dema Panaioti had a very'
sliakv afternoon in the Birds'
goal. :
Although   the  territorial   play-
was quite even, there was little
doubt about the better squad as '
the   Collies  ran   up  a   2-0   half- [
time lead. i
For an instant at the start of
the second frame it looked like
the Birds were going to make a
battle of il as Jack Butterficld
set up Bud Dobson for the lone
Varsity goal. But Collingwood
quickly regained control and
scored two more goals before the
one-sided contest  was over.
Fullback Bud Fredrickson and
half-backs Howie Lear and Jack
Butterfield were the onlv reason
that Varsitv wasn't snowed under bv a greater margin.
In a Third Division game the
powerful UBC Chiefs literally
routed the hapless Sons of Norway right out of Templeton Park.
The sueedv students scored 7
goals in the first half for a 7-0
When the Chiefs came out of
the clubhouse for the second
half, no sign could be found of
the Norwegians who decided
that thev had had plenty before
the breather.
Leading the Chiefs " were
Gerrv Rovers and Roger Fox
who both scored first half hat'
tricks. Rodan Gopaulsingh
scored the other goal. Goalie
Somerled McDonald also picked
up his fifth shutout of the season in the contest.
The default win extended the
Chiefs undefeated streak in
league olav to ten games and
leaves them in fourth place in
Ihe league standings.
T  remain.
