NURSES OUT-TUG
HOME  EC  ATHLETES
Campus femmes staged a battle of brawn yesterday
when members of the Nurses Undergraduate,, Society
challenged any women's group on campus (preferrably the
Publications Board Women) to a tug of war for the champ-
' ionship and possession of the coveted "Big Ring" trophy
awarded each year to the strongest women on the. campus.
Failure of the Pub women to show up brought out some
twenty-strong Home Ec girls who took up the challenge to
take revenge on the Nurses. They were defeated in the
blood drive earlier this year.
Interrupting Jans Welling's tumbling display, the
Home Ec team braced itself, but was dragged over the line
in one swoop by the brawnier Nurses, Engineers, and a
John Deere.

Engineers Wow U
In Dimes Drive
Collect $590 To Help
Crippled Children    ,
By DGNNA KERRIGHAN
Engineers wowed students again Thursday noon when they
staged their annual March of Dimes Drive, in aid of the Crippl-
3d children's fund.
President of Vancouver Trades
and Lalbor Council, Alsbury, point
ed out that teachers here now realize the necessity for belonging to
the labor movement.
He claimed his party was interested ln applied principles. "We
believe in wages that will «keep a
family in comfort as well as security."
Sponsored by the CCF Chub, he
said he did not call himself a
socialist, "Because words have lost
their meaning today."
He illustrated free enterprise as
a prostituted phrase as it is used
to describe, "Glaring monopolies."
He claimed workers should have
more say in a job "The divine right
.:>!' management ln industry Is as
dead as the divine riglrts of kings,"
he asserted.
He pointed out the necessity for
iiicie,**icd production not onlyv for
defense purposes but also to assist
backward countries and share with
Miom some of our better methods.
"Democracy is worthwhile," he
stated, "because we vvill have the
freedom to win  more democracy."
Ho claimed that business men
who talk of democracy dotit know
llie- I rue  meaning of  It. I
In  conclusion  he asked gradual-1
in(g students to reserve a little lime!
for   public   service   "otherwise   less
doslruible people will tako over."      ;

Done Engineer!
We have exceeded our set quota in the
March of Dimes Campaign by
Last year, with a larger student enrolment, the engineers only managed to collfect
$430,
Either the student body is getting thrift
conscious of its obligation, or the Engineers'
techni(|ue of prying money but of reluctant
students is getting more efficient.
The Engineers set about their tisfc Wiih
their usual exuberant enthusiasm. They feel
triumphant, and have every right to do so.
It hurts me to say this as a confirmed
Artsman, but they'really deserve it this tim->.
"WELL DONE ENGINEERS!"
However, the Engineers, and the rait of
ua along with them, cannot be equally plroud
of the average sum collected per student.
EDITORIAL
Surely each and every one df til can
s^re moire than 10.7 cents fbr catue si
worthy aft ihe March of Dimes.
Sure, Student* are proverbially poor.
But the poor have a reputitidn tf beiftg geh-
erous Where the more affluent are careful.
This is not the only time th*t students
have -kith short of their tottentialitifci.
The recent £lood Drive was A prime
example. It did not even cost a dime, Just a
riilhute* of time.
The only kind explanatidn we can think
of is that students were afraid to fcart with
their blood for health reasons.
Yet somewhere in the makeup of UBG
students there seems to be streak that makes
a pint of blood aa precious as a million tonics

tetter tc the C4ltw
War And Peace
Day after day it is dinned into our ears
that war is the first of evils, and that to
maintain peace must be the surpreme aim
of our policy.
Nonsense? for apart from other objections war and peace do not designate integral
conceptions but merely two opposite conditions of society. They are highly important
and differ Jn their desirability, but they do
not imply ultimate good or ultimate evil.
We could as well believe that it should
be the supreme aim in individual life to avoid
surgical operations or that whatever may
happen, men ought never to jail their fellows. It is urged that "war settles nothing;"
that inevitably "war breeds evil;" that what
ever the issue may be, "war knows no victors,
only losers."
The truth, however, 'la that war haft settled many problems in history, as far as
there can be such a thing as' "final" settlement; that if war breeds evil peaceful capitulation may breed much fouler evil and in
a more definite way; that if the causa of justice does not always triumph in war, the
cause of injustice always triumphs in peace,
because those on the side of injustice are determined to win or war while their antagonists have shown clearly that they are not,
although it does make an enormous difference who wins and who loses the war.

Editor, The#Ubyssey
it mm with extreme distaete that
f read your editorial of Thursday,
NoT*m*h*r 22, I think It can be
safely stated that the Ubyssey 'has
reached an all-time low ln biased
sensationalism, in irresponsibility,
and ln flagrant disregard for the
truth.
At la»t, four council members
have hud the temerity to stand by
student rights and tell the editorial staff that they are not publishing a paper representative of cam-
put opinion. For thi* your paper
has cast slurs upon their council
actWtfes.
lit attempting to defend your
past policy of indifference towards
the student body In general, .you
attetttpt to wriggle out Qf your dis-
agteteble position by dragging
other* through the mud, thus hop.
ini by snoh miserable means, to
transfer the growing stutlent antagonism towards the Ubyssey onto
four council members.
Thi Editorial Board hae gone
too far in the one-sided reporting

position in regards to their un-

your flagrant trreipon«*WUty to
the students whom you are supposed to ha representing, not controlling.
In regards to your defamatory
remarks about Mr. Sparling may 1
eay that they are entirely uhtrue,

of MAD this year.
As for the other council mem-
tors'! am in no position to pass

not been satisfactory then it tft'
the council's business to Alleviate
the situation, and at such time as
they see fit. to Inform the Ubyssey, and they in turn can tell the
students all about it.

For some time the students at

A Bylaw to prohibit discrimin***,*

Such a Bylaw is meant to prohibit

Sports Threatened
se
m
There is no doubt that Football, on a crisp,
autumn Saturday afternoon, is indeed beneficial to the whole moral and physical tone
of the University. Thus, on behalf of a few
misguided students, I would like to ask some
questions, the answers of which may help
them to appreciate the philosophy of most
of the students on the campus, and perhaps
even incorporate it into their own lives.
The students in question had the temerity to stay in the Library after the two o'clock
closing time on Saturday, November 17th,
whereupon they were most efficiently ejected
from the building by a uniformed gentleman.
While they were being thrown out, however, the staff and the 'Uniform' considerately
gave their reasons for closing the Library.
The entirely erroneous outlook of these few
students came to light when they made replies to the reasons given; which are re-
produced below:
1, The Library cannot alford to keep staff on
during the afternoons. First reply: Obviously
many of the staff were staying on! Second reply:
Is the Library budget really calculated this closely? Third reply: Why not close the Library every
afternoon, Instead of just when Football Is be'rii*
played, thereby accruing a tremendous saving?
2. If the Library is left open students will look
at the game from the roof and through the windows. First reply: If you have enough authority
to throw us out then why can't you maintain
order? Second reply: Only those who can soe
around* corners will see much of the game from
the Library anyway!
3. If the Library Is left open students Will go Into
the Stacks to see the game and meanwhile steal
the 'books. First reply: Only Honours ahd Grad
students are allowed in the Stacks on Saturday
afternoons—the same aS any other day! Setiond
reply: lif stealing Is a Tact, then why ls lt more
so on 'Football Afternoons'?
i. It students want books 'badly enough they will
get them on Saturday morning, or before. First
reply: This Implies that the Library is a convenience rather than a necessity; tuition fees
notwithstanding! Second reply: Many books
needed for essays, etc., are for 'Day Use Only'
and cannot be taken from the Library. Third
reply: Grad students, many of whom spend a
numfber of days each week away from the University on field work, ate, look on Saturday
lutiternoons as an bipportn'nlty ito 'catch tvp on
the books.' Fourth reply: Why does this attitude
with regard to hooks, only hold on 'Footbull
Afternoons'?
Finally, one of these students was heard
to express this quite unworthy sentiment, "I
sincerely hope that those interested in prorogating the well-being of this University will
not let "Sports" interfere with the desires of
some of next year's students who may wish
to use the Library in the spirit which the
builders doubtless envisioned."
I plead with you — Students and Faculty!
Will not someone step forward and answer
their replies lest they leave this campus, still:
folding the erroneous assumption that a uni- j
versity should give primary emphasis to the1
process of learning rather than to sports?
EDWARD J. SOPP
Ed*tor, The tJbyssey
My congratulations te Mr, Armour for about his only Intelligent editorial for this year. I re.
ter of course, to his lnvjtatlon to
the student body to submit editorials for publication ln the Ubyssey.
I look forward to some refreshing
thought in the Ubyssey editorial
columns In the future rather than
the nauseating, pacifist, idealistic
milk-sop platitudes Chat have been
dished up to us In the form of ed-
torials by Mr. Armour.
Mr. Armour ls obvltfUsly a lover of peace, an atrtl-impertaMst and
a^ Idealist of the highest and most
realetlc plane. We have so far this
year been treated to anti-Brltlsh
sentiments regarding the Egypt,
ians and Iranlas. That the former are fanatically nationalistic
militaristic and undemocratic
seems   to  be  ignored.

Critic On
The Hearth
•   ■ < < -
"I don't want realism! I want magic!" .-Screamed Blanche Du
Bois. We got What she wanted.
Although the gauze sets which distinguished the Broadway
production of Tennessee William's "A Streetcar Named Desire"
are missing from the movie version of that play, I'm afraid
that Ifete mist still covers the playwright's eyes.
K I'm' not mistaken, the
audience is supposed to feel
a contrast between the squalid
reality of a New Orleans slum
ahd the gentle persuasions of
Wiillatas's heroine, Butterfly
Blanche who was lost without
her soft lights, her nineteenth
century   vocabulary   and   her
«>-
Rosenkavalier.
What was conveyed to me
by the raucous yappings of
Marlon Brando as Stanley
Kowalski and by his fellow
occupants of Elyslan Fields,
was something fully as false
as Blanche's delusions.
t
Sex, Drink And Food
It was a realism that had
passed by realtty through Its'
6Ver intensification, through
its consistent reliance on amateur theatrical* which suggest-
%d More an American prima-
AonnA'S fdea of what is artis-
■tic temperament (if such a
\kfit§ eutits) than a Polish-
AmertcftAl* alliegance to sex,
drink and food, Ih the Order
named;
"A Streetcar Named freslre"
l» most certainly one of the
most stimulating of the year's
motion pictures but It's reliance on an over-dramatized
realism  is  somewhat difficult
to swallow when It is offered
as the only relief from the
demented Blanche's htstriohfcs.
On the stage it plays better,
flrlr every time the movie lapses into talkiness, the next
scene immediately Involves
physical violence so that after
about the third of these rows
any effect other than dlscom-
torture is lost.
Also more noticeable ln the
movie ls the number of times
the characters fall Into each
other's arms for a comforting
word. Here we always have a
closeii'P.
Blanche Grabs Arms
'^_m_mm^_i_t_im_i__4__i____w_m_m__mmm-im-wmm.
In the theatre, such excesses
are lost in the general stage
picture. If Blanche had grabbed
one more sympathetically outstretched arm than she did, I
would also have had to be led
away.
W you are willing to accept
Tennessee William's foggy vis-
ton df reality, as I am, then
you are in for a trtily exciting
experience.
Apart from these few minor
blemishes such as a tendency
to relieve an excess of stactic
dialogue with fisticuffs, Marlon
Brando's grossly larger than
life' performance, and some
background music, that lt is
a bit corny; the film Is a pleasure.
Kim Hunter as sister Stella
Ih unforced and charming.
Karl Maiden's Mitch Is also excellently portrayed. -But wearing
not Blanche's tiara of rhine-
stone* but one of diamonds, ls

them all.

Parties
SASKAT06N — (CUP) — Debating director-at the University of
3*%katche*vaii Has rejected applications of the LPP, Social Credilt.
and other National'Parties fot fcbjf
month's     partifcmentary     forum.
Mr. Bowman, debating director,
rejected parties because he claims
that they have not shown any political Interest on campus this
term. Only those students, said the
director, who have shown themselves to be genuinely Interested
in politics should be given a
chance to participate in the forum.
Good Advice Day Here
Everyone has some and nobody needs it. Good advice
seems to be at a premium
these days.
"Join Now," "Smoke Sweet

"Ta*ke your pastry stale, and
your women fresh." Now that
is a tangible philosophic Jewel
If ever there was one.
Anonymous realist, he who
said It- fully understood that
pleasure must haye bbdy, &nd
a light, warm pastry melts too
quickly to leave a memory.
Memories are nice. They sit
In the vacancy of the mind and
radiate warmth to all parts.

Birds Rally With 5
Goals To Tie Chiefs
At the end of the first half of a challenge soccer game
played in the stadium Thursday, the mighty Thunderbird squad
found itself in the uncomfortable and highly embarassing position of being led 2-0 by the. lowly Chiefs.
The   prospect  of   being  the
Hirst ter.*m in two years to suffer defeat at the hands of the
greatly •Improved Chiefs did
not appeal to the senior squad
and they played their hardest
game of the sipason to retain
their hard-earned prestige, for.
filing ahead in the second half
to win 5-2.
CHIEFS TALLY FIRST
Early  in  the  first  half, Vic
Kdwards,   inside   left   for   the
Chiefs eluded two Bird backs
and drove a hard shot? past
Mike Pughach to put the junior brethren in the lead.
The .Birds attempts to gain
the equalizer were thwarted by
tiie efforts of the opposing
brekfl' and goalie Norm McLean.
The Chiefs' second goal resulted from a scramble In the
goal-mouth.
Young who led ln points by scoring two goals and assisting nn another, while Steve Qryschuk with
his usual skill picked up a goal
and an a*stfist.
But the majdirtty of the goals
were scored by players who found
the net for the first time this season. Playing for the first time together newcomer Jim Todd and
Rodger Stanton clicked on two
attacks to register a goal apiece.
Each player assisted on the other's
goal.
McMAHON  TOM
Big Jim McMahon was the out.
standing defenceman of the night
shooting In two big goals. On his
first effort Al Hood pushed over a
pass in front of the goal and Jim
made no mistake. His next goal
resulted from a screen shot after
Birds missed some half dozen attempts to find the net.
The first period consisted of the
closest checking contest to date.
UBC had the definite edge on play
but their efforts were continually
stalled by a tight Burnaby defence.
Burnaby finally tied the score
at one apiece in the sandwich session but Hass Young put the Birds
ahead again on a* colorful solo effort after navigating the Burnaby
defence and giving the goalie a
chance on u* hard corner shot.
OVER .CONFIDENT
Jim McMahon put Birds further
ahead a few minutes later and in
the third period they whipped in
four more counters before Beavers beat goal-tender Bill Olsen on
two occasions after the Birds got
a trifle over-confident with their
six  goal  lead.
Olsen, incidentally, gave out
with another outstanding perform,
ance in the net turning back shots
(time and time again that were
labelled tor goals. This lanky bulwark In Birds defence has improved tremendously In his last two
games.
The Thunderbird played a smart
fast game of hockey and the outcome was never ln doubt. Their
third straight win was the result
of playing headsup hockey and
constant hustle throughout the entire sixty minutes. It seems to have
taken Birds four league games to
finally   round   Into   condition.

Wednesday 6 to 0. Next Wwines-
