Peerless Pubsters
Pulverise Peers
The glorious forces of right \
and justice triumphed once
again Thursday noon in War
Memorial gym when the Publications Board basketball team,
almost sickening in its perfection, whomped the degenerate
Students Council squad 21-15.
The high-scoring contest was
witnessed by three slightly
muscle-bound Phys Ed students,
Ivan Feltham's maiden aunt and
a scout from the Washabay-
altkz Valley Scarlet Mauraud-
crs, Mushball quintet.
Outcome of the game, which
re-affirmed the theory that
clean-living youth will always)
emerge victorious over mercenary, political-minded hucksters,
was that Feltham lost the gold-
plated desk which he had obtained by cheating the LSE and
saving 4,370 popsicle wrappers.
As consolation prize Feltham
received the Ubyssey editor-in
chief's desk, a relic noted chiefly <or the handles on its drawers
which are second only to your
girl friend's buck teeth as efficient brew-bottle cap removers.
As to the contest? itself, the
chief highlight was the ease
in which the Illegitimate Children toyed with the Councillors
to provide the spectators with
entertainment, then turned on
all 245 h. p. when the going
began to get rough and pulled
away from the Little Tin Gods
like an Applied Science student
leaving a spelling contest.
Mike Ames, a glandular case
from thr'W-dU Of Vancouver
Island, led the Pubsters while
for the Council Dirty Dick Underhill, as a basketball player,
played an outstanding game of
rugger. He was aided by Howie
"Don't Blame Me, I didn't get
a Compass for Christmas'' Beck,
who displayed tho overflowing
pity in his boyish little heart
by distributing his baskets
evenly among his own team and
among his enemies. Beck is
currently working on a novel,
"Turn the Other Cheek." or "A
Bisket, A Basket, But Who

Response to 500 letters sent
out to students still owing the
$2 AMS fee increase has been
very poor, according to Accountant   William   White.
White said only 100 have replied to the letters.
In addition, White said, there
are still 200 students who
haven't paid their second term
fees. "They can expect to receive letters from the Accountant's Office at the beginning of
next week." declared White,
He pointed out that UBC students who intend to leave school
should contact him at the Administration Office.

Parliamentary Forum was like

The Forum, divorcing itself
from the realities of parliamentary procedure, allowed the Social Credit party to introduce a j ed to exercise his franchise.
Cause of the trouble, is the
switchover in the type of card
issued this year. The students
were told this year at registration that it was necessary for
them to have a special photo
taken for the cards. The photo
cost students fifty two cents.

To Appear
Snow, power failures and Dean Gage descended on UBC
students 'Thursday as the campus was almost completely penalized by the first heavy snow-fall in two years.
Fun-loving male students and prairie expatriates seeing
their first real glimpse of BC snow gave campus RCMP a bad
time Thursday morning as they y-
frolicked in front of the library.
Gage had to be called out to
help RCMP break a siege of the
library steps by ardent snowbal-
205 have been paid for and have
individual portraits printed on
them. The remainder, 443 in all,
are waiting, sans portrait, for
their owners to claim them.
Cardless students arc also re-
nhided that without their AMS
identification they cannot obtain reduced rates at downtown
theatres, or attend Filmsoc showings.
In the approaching elections,
each student is required to produce his card.before he is allow-
A new campus magazine, the
"Literary Humorist," has been
proposed by John Darling, first
year Arts student, who feels
UBC should be represented in a
more mature manner.
Patterned after England's
"Punch" the magazine would
•appear moifthly after its inaugural issue this term.
Printing would be done by
the department of extension's
"Multi-Lith" division, not thc
ordinary printing method.
Darling said the magazine
would "represent this university
in a more mature way th*an does
The Ubyssey."
Persons interested in taking
part in development of this magazine aro asked to get in touch
with Darling at Hut 4, Fort
High-jinks started when several students managed to reach
the library roof and then pro-
ccded to roll huge- snowballs onto students entering through
the main door. Later several
hundred students blocked the revolving door with a five-foot
high snowball.
The mob broke into two sections and for a time made things
rough for passing students as
they pelted each other with
snowballs. RCMP were finally
called but their requests for the
students to disperse were greeted With jeers and more snowballs.
When the RCMP loudspeaker
car was finally forced to leave,
one constable remained and was
immediately mobbed by the
good-natured crowd. Those on
the edge of the mob threw globs
of snow in the general direction
of the RCMP constable.
But it was not until Dean Walter Gage arrived that the
students dispersed. Speaking
quietly, but with authority, the
popular Dean persuaded the
crowd to break up.
A ten-minute power interruption at the university occurred
just alter 11 a.m., and a second

Fewer than 56 people attended a snow-bound session which

eventually introduced, then defeated by a 12-10 vote.

USC'S 'Arguments
Student Council has once again side-stepped the question ol student discipline. By referring the Undergraduate
Societies Committee's recommendation on discipline to one of
its everlasting committees, Council has just taken another
step In delaying the establishment of a' student court, a
--necessity which ia becoming more obvious every time an infraction confronts the ineffectual USC discipline group.
r. ilm McNish, president of USC, gave the same, tired old
argument at Council Monday night in defence of the present
system which allows USC to investigate, judge and pass
Whence on any student charged with an Infraction of the
McNish argues th« the common, ordinary student should
t)e tried and sentenced by common, ordinary students. He
Ignores the fact that go judiciary in existence is made up of
Gammon, ordinary individuals. Courts are composed of trained Individuals whose job it is to try and pass sentence on
law-breakers. McNish still apparently has the view that UBC
students who break university laws are* just playful little
fay*'who should be given a rap on the knuckles and sent
dri their way.
The recent public relations problems arising out of the
Bellingham Invasion and the Applied Science smoker show
^fmore than a rap on the knuckles is needed. Last week a
sttideht escaped serious injury only by luck at a dance at
9ro«k hill and no charges were laid against the offending
Yet McNish still maintains that USC should handle
discipline. He maintains this despite the fact that USC hand-
ajd in a recommendation on discipline to Council and nowhere in the report was there any provision as to who was
to lay charges against law-breakers. So far this year the
AMS president and secretary have been forced into the unenviable job of laying charges against students simply because
USC has shirked responsibility in doing so.
In a letter printed on this page today, Roi Daniels, a
member of USC says, "... USC has discussed new methods
of handling student infractions ... in which USC will investigate and judge those charges and mete out necessary
Mr. Daniels is caught in his own so-called logic. Wc
would like to ask him if he has ever heard of any single body
which investigates tries, and sentences offenders. The customary judicial procedure is for separate bodies to handle the
three separate phases of justice.
-Daniels says, "USC wants a system or investigation, judgment and punishment of student misdemeanors which is as
informal ... as possible." That is precisely the point. USC's
antiquated system of discipline is so informal that it is ineffectual and useless. Daniels, apparently serious, continues
by saying that students should not be judged by "necessarily
eminent" students. Daniels' whole casual attitude toward
.discipline is exemplified by terms such as this and by re-
fering to student "misdemeanors" and "informal" investigation and judgment.
USC's arguments defending its system of discipline only
emphasize the need fpr a separate student court.
Revise Debates
In the years immediately following the war, the Canadian
Legion presented a cup, known as the Legion Cup, to be presented as a trophy for inter-faculty debates, in order to
stimulate debating on this campus. Last year, Nursing and
Law fought for the cup, Law coming out on top. Most of
the other undergrad societies did not take part—they weren't
interested. The AUS, howeevr, was not uninterested—
they just did not exist.
This year the Parliamentary Forum is throwing the competition open to all campus organization, clubs and Greek
letter societies as well as to the undergrad societie.s This
was done to better carry out the intention of the Legion, that
is, to stimulate discussion of interesting topics by means of
the debate. The Parliamentary Forum has authority to
recognize any Arts students who wish to debate under their
own colours, if they are willing to form an arl hoc group, in
order to compete.
Ii you are interested in debating, and incidentally in promoting a little esprit de corps within the component groups
that make up campus life, you are urged to let the executive
of any organization for which you wish to debate know that
you are available.
The cup was donated to you, tho students of this university.    Only   you   can   set'   that   these   debates   will   be
worthwhile. TUUM EST!
P. J. L. Henslowe.
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In your editoripl 'Anarchy
Unlimited" of January lo, you
stated that UBC is covering up
for students' misdemeanors and
is avoiding responsibility." I
would point out that USC can
investigate, judge and recommend punishment (where necessary) only when charges have
been laid against some member
of AMS. Also USC, with power, delegated from the Facility
Council, can suggest a maximum fine of only five dollars.
Anything deserving of heavier
a- bnce must pe referred to
Faculty Council. Durlr». the
i i £3-54 tenn when ;ver charges
ha\c been laid USC »m done
its duty* The batting average is
1,000 not zero.
You also stated that "USC
would prefer to continue their
unsatisfactory method of handling a problem that is becoming more serious everyday."
Again you are wrong. USC has
discussed new methods of
handling student infractions
and hopes to have instituted
an efficient, just method in
which USC will investigate and
judge those charged and mete
out necessary  punishment.
USC defeated the student
court method of dealing with
misdemeanors for the following reasons. USC does not
want to lose what powers over
student discipline it now has
and in fact hopes to extend
that responsibility.
USC wants a system of Investigation, judgment and punishment of student misdemeanors which is as informal, flex-
i ible and just as possible. It
feels that a court would be too
formal, rigid and no more Just
than the system now proposed.
USC believes that any student charged should have his
case investigated and judged
and, if need be,' should be
punished by responsible, but
.not necessary eminent students. Hence itfeels that a
separate court of judges is unnecessary and undesirable.
USC believes that each student brought to trial should
have a representative of his
own undergraduate society on
any court judging him. USC
has these representatives.
Add to those five points the
difficulties involved in selecting judges and organizing a
court and it becomes obvious
that USC did not defeat the
student court idea simply because of the name, as your
editorial states, nor for "fear
that the student court woud become the plaything for fleg-
ling lawyers," but because
USC members feel that a student court is less efficient and
no more just than USC itself
and will be.

bus the other jour, I glimmed
a window poster offering the
solution to unrequited love.
Turn ye not away; this isn't
so impossible—not if I am to
believe the poster. It said:
"How to be loved by Mar-
lene Dietrich."
It struck me as being an interesting proposition .
This may be the answer to
the dreams of thousands of
young men today, even though
Marlene Is no longer a budding
starlet.   ' •
The fact is that she's a movie
actress, that unattainable entity epitomizing the frustrated
desires of American boyhood
since Mary Piokford and prototypes of Marilyn Monroe.
. Now at last we can find out
how to satisfy the demands of
screen closeups and biology,
with with none other than one
of the grand old ladies of the
flicks, but still one who has
preserved her physioal attributes for the edification of Uninitiated movie-goers.
Proof of this is that recently
she appeared in a Las Vegas
nightclub wearing a transparent gown. She caused a sensation. Who wouldn't?
She may be one of the country's youngest grandmothers,
but this doesn't mean that she's
outclassed ln the field of pulchritude by younger fry. After
all, being a grandmother so
early she must have had early
experience in the field. She's,
had the time to perfect what-
everltis she's got. *
As Hemingway once said
about Marlene's capabilities.
"She knows more about love
than anybody." And you all
know Hemingway.
But getting back to the poster; I know you must be hanging on my words; it was promoting the Ladies' Home Journal.
There la a note of incongruity
here. Why would Marlene Dietrich advertise her affections in
a woman's magazine? What
does she take our "snow white"
womanhood for?
There must have been a mistake in the publishing house,
for Marlene has altogether too
many salient features to be attractive to other women. I
think the article was slated for
True, or Saga, or Men Only, or
even volume one of the Kinsey
Maybe I'm just naive. Are
there more male readers of the
Ladies' Home Journal than female? I really wouldn't know;
it's such a long time since I
devoured a copy. I find I can
get recipes and all the underwear ads from Life.
Yes, Marlene has something
she's willing to share. Only 10
years ago she was making repatriation a little brighter by
kissing American soldiers leaning out of troopship portholes
even before thc ship was properly docked. She had to be
hoisted on the shoulders of twp
strong men to do It, but this
only exposed more of her integrated parts.
If Marlene is willing to raise
us out of our Freudian muck,
men, why should we let these
college girls demoralize us by
batting their extra-long eyelashes at us and wriggling their
extra-curricular activities under our noses, then flitting off
to the sanctuary of their sororities?
Emancipation in the guise of
the Ladies' Home Journal
might keep Crease Clinic in the
minor league, and Marlene
Dietrich notwithstanding, there
are always the underwear ads.

Crowd Sees Production
By Bert Gordon
Vancouver's current snow
blitz was no^deterrant to the
2S0 people who plowed their
way to the Audtlorium Thursday night to see English Department's Workshop production of Eugene O'Neill's psychological play "Great God
"Great God Brown" is a
highly experimental play and
is unique in its complexity of
symobilsm and psychology.
O'Neill himself   summed   up
the Content of the play when
ho said that "I am interested
only in the relation between
man and God not in the relationship between man and
This reviewer got the impression that most of those attending last night's perform-
ence were glad that Dorothy
Somerset gave a resume of the
significance of the play before the first Act began. A
play such as "Great God
Brown" requires a great deal
ot thought to appreciate its
full implication.
Philip Keatley, Peter #*•;
worth, Joanne Walker and
Louise De Vick were impressive in the four lead roles although all but Miss Walker
tended to be too dramatic in
their gestures and soliloquies.
The lighting and the props
although simple were effective
and placed the true importance of the play on the player*
and dialogue.
The play will continue tonight and tomorrow night ft

revise the code by next Monday's
Thi> revision committee, composed of Ivan Feltham, Bill St.
John, Marilyn Russel, and one
USC member, will investigate
the composition of the court, its
powers of punishment, the offences it will judge, its machinery for discipline enforcement
and rights of appeal.
The Undergraduate Societies
committee, composed of undergraduate representatives, is empowered under AMS to judge
and sentence any student violator of AMS regulations. It may
fine up to $5, suspend student
privileges or "impose any other
Actual present composition
and procedure of the USC discipline committee if outlined
separately in Article IX of the
AMS code.
Under the system now in effect, the USC must, at the beginning of the year, form itself into
two committees, one responsible
for enforcement of AMS rules,
the other for judging and sentencing student infractors.
A member of this enforcement
committee "shall be present at
each major University function
wherever possible," the code
The new code, now under consideration, contains as yet no
provision for this policing action,
only for judging and sentencing.
The machinery for judging
and sentencing differs in these
two codes. The system now in
operation offers two courts: a
'speedy trial" court under one
magistrate selected from the
USC; a "full court" with five
judges selected also from the
Appeals may be made by defendants from the "speedy" to
the "full' court and from there
to the Student Council and
Faculty Council.
Under thc proposed scheme,
only one court is open to offenders. In it, the judges will be all
the members of the Undergrad
Although no consideration of
appeals to the Student Council
is made in the proposed code,
the revising committee has been
Instructed to consider this problem.
Another problem facing the re?
vising committee concerns the
extent of the powers of the AMS
in discipline. The present code
states that as well as judging infractions of AMS rules, the discipline committee is responsible
for judging "conduct unbecoming to a student."
The proposed scheme states
only that the USC shall be responsible for "an infraction of
any rule" of the AMS or Student

break came at 1:05 p.m. Trouble-
shooters succeeded in switching
over to auxiliary power supply
at 1:57.
A third power break occurred
at 5:25 p.m., causing the university to shut down completely,
Ubyssey staff to work by candlelight and the English department's play "The Great God
Brown" to prepare for staging
by candleglow. Ten minutes
after the curtain was due to rise
at 8:30, power was restored
throughout the area. Cause of
failure was not determined.
A noted decline in university
population was attributed to
fouled transportation and unwillingness to venture into the
soggy snow.
There was no general cancellation of classes, but many
students, finding their professors
were unable to get this far for
morning lectures, turned on heel
and  went  home.
Of 69 third year law students
in one class, only nine showed
up Thursday morning,
Cause of the power break was
attributed by B.C. Electric to
four young 40-foot trees in University Endowment lands leaning under their weight of snow
on a 12,000 volt transmission
line. This caused a short circuit
and power interruption. Linemen removed the trees Thursday afternoon.

Minor differences between
the two codes are that the proposed committee will not use a
prosecuting attorney, nor will lt
judge upon charges laid by Faculty members.
Press may be excluded from
the court under either system,
but the proposed court will not
be required to post proceedings
after the trial.
Fire Bond
Student and Faculty groups
that use the Auditorium Stage
and Scenery Shop may have &
post a bond to insure the removal of fire hazards and debris.
The AMS Stage Committee
will meet Wednesday in the
Brock Hall Board room to consider the suggestion of Miss
Dorothy Somerset of the English department that these
groups place a $50 deposit with
the Committee.
She feels that the present
supervisory committee does not
not have sufficient power to insure that the Stage and the
Scenery Shop are kept clean.
Miss Somerset said that'she
had received several complaint*

Victory was the cry at the
Forum Wednesday as the UBC

trounced the hapless PNE Indians 5-2.
The 'Birds were in command
all the way as they moved into
second spot in the league standings.
From the opening face-off until the final gun, the 'Birds were
raining pucks at the PNE goal
as they outshot the Indiana three

period with the remaining ones
coming in the other two periods.
This victory puts the 'Birds in
second place just one point behind the Kerries. A win for the

The Birds won their first game
of the season when they humbled
the powerful Eastern Washington Savages last Friday night
and although they lost on Saturday night to the Whitworth
juggernaut they looked very im-1»
pressive. Apparently they have
hit their stride and if they can
keep it up it up this weekend
they should cop a couple of wins.
The most heartening news In
the Bird camp Is the scoring
splurge of center Geoff Craig.
Geoff potted 30 points over the
weekend and Coach Pomfret is
counting heavily on him this
John McLeod has been olay-
ing good ball and averaging
close to 15 points a game but
this is not spectacular for a player of John's ability and he may
really break loose against Western.

Views Conference
Whitworth looks like the strongest team in the league this
season. Coach Art Smith is blessed with the return of eight
lettermen, led by Phil Jordan, 6'10" center and the Beach twins,
Roy and Ray. Other returnees are Wayne Hintz, 6'9", Dove
Eickerman, Len Long, 6'6" Ralph Bohannon, and 6'9" Ron
Miller. With frosh star Dave Martin, from Lewis and Clark, the
Pirates look like a very formidable outfit.
Coach Red Reese has another strong team in the making at
EASTERN, led by high scorer Dick Edwards and the 6'6" frosh
sensation, Fletcher Frazier. Edwards has averaged near 15 points
per game in pre-conference games and looks like a good bet for
all-Evergreen choice. The Savages also have Bill Ellis and Earl
Enos returning, but might have trouble with lack of depth.
Central's WILDCATS look like a "sleeper" candidate lor
the crown, according to pre conference games and their good
depth of material. The one thing that probably will bother them
throughout the season will be their lack o£ height. Speed is emphasized to try and make up for that weakness. Their scoring
potential is great with players like frosh Don Myers, captain Gene
Keller, Don Heacox, Bob Dunn, Don Lyall, and Bob Logue on
the same squad.
tight defense and ball-control offensive. Coach Marv Jfarshman
lost olny Glen Huffman from his startins five so, with Garnet
Lund, Donn Kocssler, Bob Ross, Al Grubud and Ron Billings returning, things look bright over at Parkland. The one thing that
might pull the Glads through tough games is their great depth,

The howls can still bo hoard over in Tacoma when the CPS

the final standings. No team could lose a Jake Moberry and
Tiessen, and place higher than last year. Coach John Heinrich
still has Warren Moyles, Bill Medin, and Russ Wilkerson returning, plus some good JV material. Frosh Earl Tallman and JC
transfer Gordy Eliason have shown good and are lighting for a
starting berth.
improved from last season. Galen Reimer. Bob Potrosik and Bob
Stone are the returnees, with newcomer Dan Smith also looking
good. This team has good ball-handling, speed, and maybe ability
to score from outside, but looks short in experience and depth.
Coach Jack Pomfret of the UBC THUNDERBIRDS is reported to have tho strongest club in years and might give many
teams headaches before the season is ovor. Pomfret has captain
Brian Upson, high scoring John McLeod, and Dan Zaharko returning, and with fi'8" Gooff Craig under the boards, (hoy look

Pubsters Roll
Over Council
Despite the efforts of Dick
(hit em again) Underhill and
Bill (trip if you can) St. John
the glorious Fubsters defeated
the Students Council 21-15 in a
basketball? game at noon Thursday.
Led by Mike Ames and Al
Fotheringham the Pubsters were
in command all the way and
took It easy in the last half
to keep the Council from looking
too bad.
One girl had to be on the floor
at all times and the femmes added immeasurably to the high
calibre of basketball that was
displayed. As a matter of fact,
Marilyn Russell was Council's
outstanding player.
Council's Dick Underhill
thought that it was a rugger
game but when he was informed
differently he changed his style
to American  football.
The highlight of the game
came when Council's Howie
