had arrived at UBC to try to
outbleed Bilgewater Barns-

had been picked to uphold
the honour of British Columbia in the battle of the red
corpuscles between UBC and
the University of Texas.
The tall Texan, oozing confidence'and great gobs of blood, is
Judged to be the champeen-wee*

himself by carving "Tuum Est"
in bis forearm with a Jacknife.

Finally the hour of the contest
arrived. Over 5000 students packed the armouries to see the red
blood run. Bilgewater Barnsmell
was piped into the armouries to
the tune of "Red Sails in the
Sunset." He approached the stage
where six nurses manned the
gore gushing station, each one at
their pumps. Bilgewater slamni'd
on his brakes and said, "Three
gallons of corpuscles and check
the capillaries please."
The nurses Ignored him. The
head nurse, Miss Dracula, slashed
open his Jugular vein with a
broken milk bottle and started
the meter ticking on the 40 gallon tank.
"...  15  gallons,   20  gallons
27 gallons . . ." The crowd shouted in unison as the tank became
redder   and   Barnsmell   became
"... .'18 gallons, 41 gallons, 42

There was one last gurgle, Bilge-
water Barsmell slumped back.
The students were going hysterical,
''Hurray for Bilgewater, good
to the last drop," someone remarked as they carted the remains away.

The crowd was expectant. A
hush hung over the armouries.
Miss Dracula's can opener

was a gush of blood and the
crowd gasped,
students shouted. "G R E E N

back, but nulckly regained her
composure and filled her fountain

Blood Drive
Gets Help
Blood is flowing so freely in the Attttories these days that
the Red Cross has found itself short of bottles .
A special flight has been arranged to fly in more plasma
bottles from Edmonton. *	
The Red Cross was really taken
by surprise Tuesday, when more
than 125 students who stormed the
Armories had to be turned away,
because existing facilities were insufficient.
On Wednesday, the Red Cross
issued a statement apologizing for
underestimating student enthusiasm Blood oDnor Panel Director
K. S. l>ouke.s promised that facilities would be extended to cope with
more donors.
"Wc are determined to give you'
every assistance in setting a new
North American record hy donating
more blood than Texas University,"
Loukes said.
To enable students to reach 2777
pint quota, the blood clinic has
cancelled a trip to the Interior,
scheduled for next week.
By Wednesday night 1*177 pints
of  blood  had  been  collected.
Many more people bad signed
pledges and had made appointments for today, Monday and Tuesday.
Del Sharp's Blood Drive Committee ha.s asked all those who bave
made appointments to turn up ln
The blood clinic will close for a
short time today because of a memorial service for King George, which
is to he held in the Armouries at
1:15 p.m.
Corpuscle Capers, a dance for
blood donors, will be held Saturday
night at 9:30. There will be no
charge for donors. Others will have
to pay 50.

The .famous students in Sig-
in und Romberg's operetta "The
Student Prince'* are very shortly
to he portrayed hy real student,*
at the University of B.C. This
well-known operetta is to be performed at the UDC Auditorium,
Student nights are the 18th and
20th of February at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are available in the Quad,
Thursday,   Saturday   and   Monday.
With this production, thc Musical Society presents Its first really
contemporary show In 21! years of
activity. And this new development was found to be feasible
largely because of the Society's
new musical director, Mr. Harry
Pryce of Theatre Under the Stars
and CI1C lame. He and Mr. ti. V.
Young, who has heen dramatic director on the campus for IS years,
found an unusually large flo-ik of
student, talent at hand this year.
For these reasons, mainly It was
found possible to attempt sue'i a
complicated and expensive show as
"The Student Prince,'' ii which
there are many loading roles, all
of them difficult to perform with
The play itself deals with ihe
carefree life of thp sludenls it old
Heidelberg University, Young
Prince Karl Franz, led up with the
artificiality of court life, comes to
Heidelberg willi Mr. Kngel, the
prluce'u  kindly  tutor,   who  hi uself
was a student In bis youth.
Karl Franz becomes fast friends
with tbe students, especially with
the lively trio of Detlef, Lucas and
Von Asteberg, and then finds b'm-
self falling in love with Kuthle,
the Inkeoper's daughter. But Lut2,
the prince's private attendant,
and comedian of the story, kjeps
reminding the prince of the pleb
elan character of tbe students. This
amusing individual finds the snuH
of "sausage and stale beer" nt
Heidelberg to be intolerable. And
Gretclien, the bar-maid, perpetually 'gets under his skin'.
Finally the prince ls forced to
leave the university out of royal
duty to the state. He finds ont
that among his other dutios be
musy marry Princess Margaret, who
is guarded over by her matronly
mother, the Duchess. The Princess
has been carrying on a flirtation
with Captain Tarnltz of the Guards
but finds no difficulty in switching
her affections to the Prince. The
wedding date Is set.
Karl Franz, however, realizes
that he must return to Heidelberg.
He must force himself to believe
that* the memory of his sudem
life and love is nothing more than
a dream of his carefree past. And
Kutliie knows that site must leave
him if he is to if ind any real happiness in life at all.
Meanwhile, Dr. Engel lias died,
leaving thc Prince nobody to turn
to in his distress and loneliness
but the Princess Margaret. And
the operetta ends with this dramatic blend of happiness and sadness.
Because Friday, February 15th has been proclaimed a
national day of mourning in commemoration of His Late
Majesty George VI, there will be no classes on Friday.
A short memorial service will be held in the University
Armoury at 1:40 on Thursday. Students are requested to
attend. Lectures wiil resume alter the service at 2;30.
At 12:30 on Thursday, leading scientist, Dr. Linus Pauling, will deliver the annual Canadian Club address in the
University Auditorium,
And  the feeling  that duty comos
before all.
The part of the Prince is to be
banded by Kelvin Service, who
lias had many years of leading
roles in past UBC productions. Kel
is probably best remembered for
his admlrnle portrayal of "Charlie"
in last summer's TUTS show, Brig-
Mllla Andrew will take the part
of Katlile. For the last four years
Miss Andrew lias played leading
roles Inthe UBC stage. Mllla has
a eautiful soprano voice, with definite operatic possibilities in store
for her.
A newcomer to the Musical Society ls Charles Watt, who will play
the part of Dr. Engel. Charles has
a fine baritone voice, and no doubt
will take many more leading roles
in his future yeais with the campus group.
The princess' role will be taken
by Barharaa Gwyther, and that ot
Captain Tarnitz by John Ycomans.
Each had big leading parts Jn last
year's production of "The Gondoliers."
Tbe chorus work is being handled by a group of students of exceptionally high musical and dramatic ability. They are all working
with confidence and capability, and
it is a treat to hear them go Into
such numbers as "The Drinking
Song.'' "Tlu> Student Marching
Song" and "Come Boys, Let's all
be   dayboys.'' Page Two

Need For Arts
SOMETIME ago the senate approved a school of physical
education for this university.
Now this is all nice and fine. Certainly a university the
size of UBC should possess sucfi a school.
- However when we compare ^he student interest in athletics to that of the arts—the fine arts—we are somewhat puzzled. Trying to comprehend why a school of physical education
should be considered first is difficult.
How many students are particularly interested In the
activities of rugger, soccer, basketball, and swimming teams?
Judging from attendance at games played throughout the
year, we can assure you that very few students eare how the
school teams fare.
On the other hand students have been turned away, owing
to lack of accommodation, from presentations like the "Ascent
of F6" and personal appearances of well-known artists like
Andres Segovia and the Juilliard Quartet.
With the exception of the Harlem Globe Trotter appearance here, athletics* have taken a back seat to the arts in student interest.
Why then, we ask, is there not a school of fine arts at
The Massey Commission looked to the universities for
leadership in the arts, letters and the sciences.
We have responded favorably in the sciences and letters.
But what has happened in the arts? Unfortunately nothing.
Students' actions have certainly shown that a school of
fine arts is warranted.
It is time something is been done.
Two Categories
ACCORDING to the encyclopaedia, February 14th is the
' festival of St. Valentine, a Christian martyr of approximately the third century.
It goes on to say that the custom of sending valentines
probably had its origin in a heathen practice connected with
the worship of Juno. The relation of valentines to the saint
is entirely accidental.
We might add that there i.s nothing accidental in the sending of valentines. Either you do or you don't.
People that do are of two types: those that can afford it,
and those that have to. Husbands and young lovers fall into the
second category. We will ignore the first class for fear of
arousing envy.
In the meatime, the stores have been stirring the general
apprehension with their lovely cupid and white lace simpering, "She'll love your thoughtfulness as you buy YOUR

Editor, The Ubyssey:
In yesterday's issue of the
Ubyssey, two items held my
Interest and provided considerable food for thought. One was
the editorial article, "This is
Justice?" in which the writer
deplored the lack ot humane
ideals, and observed that a
man was human even if ho
belonged to the Communist
Party, and spoke a foreign
language. The other was tbe
front page cartoon captioned:
."it's an exchange student
from Africa."
Now I am not -from Africa
nor am I an exchange student, but I am a colored student at UBC. Since coming
here, I have benefited a great
deal—both intra and extra
murally—but did not realise
the presence of us colored
boys embarras other students,
it Canadian students, who
build and maintain the university suffer any inconvenience
from the presence of colored
people in their midst; it may
be better if the latter were
advised against seeking admission to the UBC. Even if the
truth did hurt; Justice—for
which you make a stirring appeal—would be well served If
colored boys were dissuaded
from travelling thousands of
miles and spending thousands
of dollars to attend school here
—where they are not welcomed. In addition, tiie school
paper would not be placed in
the situation where, on one
page, it appeals for Justice
and humane Ideals, and on another, holds up African students to ridicule.
Colored Students.

Any right-thinking citizen of British Columbia would
have opposed the whole idea from the start.
Tax monies from all Canadian people will be used to
finance the huge electric power and canal project.
And who benefits?
The people of Eastern Canada. The French-Canadians

The tycoons of James Street «and Pay street must be
afraid of the B.C. boom. They must fear their hold on the
economic tiller of the nation is slipping.
In a desperate effort to tighten their grip, these eastern
business men have badgered the government into building
the St. Lawrence Seaway despite failure of the American
government to help.
All our wood products, fish, and minerals must go by boat
through the roundabout Panama Canal route, or over the
tortuous, expensive railways. Our imports have to travel the
same routes.
If Toronto can become a deep-sea port, with the expenditure of a few million dollars then with a few million more,
the canal system could be extended a few thousand miles
right across the nation to Vancouver.
Then we would have the same economic chances as Toronto and Montreal. „   , «

There is no cause closet to my
heart than the great work of the
Canadian Council ot Christians and
Jews who are sponsoring Brother
hood Week and I think It Is of
the greatest importance that of
all groups, university groups should
learn more of the splendid ends
the Council Is seeking to achieve
and by their own actions do all
that they can to assist in achieving
those ends.
Too often In our every-day life
we become so engrossed in the
immediate necessities that we lose
sight of ourselves as members of a
common humanity. We are Inclined to forget the constant necessity for tolerance, for understanding, for generosity—those great
words that are among the noblest in our thought and language.
"Brotherhood Week" serves the
purpose of bringing those words
before us again. It reminds us
that ln our way of life we are
guided by the Judeo'Chrlstion concept that the fundamental element in our civilization is not
class or state but he individual
human being and the greatness
and the importance of that individual human being. It serves to
remind us that, in the words ot
Oeorge Moore, "After all, there Is
but one race—'humanity." (

Coon Again
Editor,  The   Ubyssey
After reading last Friday's
"Up a Tree" by Chuck Coon,
the only calm comment thet
I find myself able to make is
this: There are hundreds of
of Commerce students at UBC
who will be able to add et
least something to "our rich
human heritage," while Mr.
Coon himself and other people
who pride themselves on living ln trees, will be absolutely incapable of adding anything.
Anne S. Hutchison.
Editor, The  Ubyssey
There are times when freedom of the press can be carried too far. Even in a democratic* country we cannot allow complete freedom In
print. We do not allow libel
--the slandering of a person.
Should we then allow the
slandering of a country or a
king? Some countries call this
high treason.
We all have opinions and
we are certainly entitled to
have them, but Mr. Chuck
Coon values are certainly out
of taste, to say the least.
Whether he thinks the Sovereignty — the living tie between the British Commonwealth, 1b worthless or not,
this time of sincere mourning is hardly the time to vent
his opinions,especially on the
form o[ disrespectful humor.

President Speaks
Probably the most difficult and certainly the most important
problem confronting the peoples and the nations of the world
ffday is that of human relationships,, for, unless we are able
to work out ways and means of living together in this world in
a peaceful and co-operative way, the future, if there is any
future, will be full of conflict and war and death and destruction.
The solution of this problem depends in part upon our
ability to organize institutions and agencies of government at the
world level, but it depends, too, to a far greater extent upon our
desire and our determination as individuals to work together
for the solution of our common problems, regardless of differences in colour and race ,in language and religion, in politics or
in class interest.
That is why I am interested in the programme for Brotherhood Week and why I ton glad to lend this programme and all
similar efforts my support. Obviously, unless we begin to deal
with this problem at our own levels and in our own communities,
there is no value an dno hope in pious statements about what
should be done at higher levels and in other parts of the world.
If we here in Vancouver and British Columbia create a
community in which all men and women of goodwill can live
together in some measure of comfort and happiness, we will
have made an important contribution towards the solution of
the larger problem. Our experience and our results will in
turn be useful in finding or effecting a solution of the larger
I am, therefore, more than pleased to be able to join with
others in wishing the greatest possible success for your programme during the next week.
Brotherhood And Frats
"Brotherhood Week" open on

to fostering enlightened understanding between racial and
'religious groups ln the community. The university takes
pride in its enlightened attitude on these and other matters and considers It one of
its functions to spread this
enlightenment throughout the
It must seem strange to outsiders, noticing the prominent
part being taken by university
officials In Brotherhood Week,
that the same officials support the maintenance on the
campus of organizations that
are racially and religiously discriminating. It must seem still
more strange to these outsiders that students, in the midst
of organizing an ambitious
"Brotherhood Week" program,
comprise the membership^ of
these organizations. Because

outsiders may tend to regard
the university as a source of
Intolerance and foypoorisy.
These outsiders would not
realize that the bulk of fraternity (and sorority) members
are not racially or religiously
intolerant but rather support
organisations whioh are established on this basis. Most fraternity tnentfbers dislike as
much as we do the constitutional bars established by some
of their organisations to membership of certain racial groups
and the intolerance of a email
group of their members that
frequently act as a bar to such
membership when constitutional restrictions are not present.
They regret the implication
derived from their membership requirements that certain
racial and religious groups are
"not good enough" to associate
with them on an equal social
•plane. They realize that their
restrictive membership is limiting their contact with the
different ideas frequently held
by minority groups with subsequent loss to themselves
since a university education
consists after all largely of an
exchange of ideas.
Let's now look at the situation from the point of view of
the minority groups we have
been considering How do the
excluded, the unacceptable,
and those relegated to a fraternity where their race or religion is "tolerated" react. Are
they supposed to change their
their rellgioun and race so they
cab continue to associate with
their friends of High School
days. (Days when we had not

Tiie two referees In that particular game nearly succeeded in ruining  an   otherwise  excellent   game.
Two   whistle-happy  refs   spoilt as
exciting a game as you will ever
want to.see. Matched In the contest
were   tlio   UBC   Juyvees,   a   team
jwhlch   lu   a   couple   of   years   may
bring  back  a  bit of the  glory of
Robertson,   Weber,   Makken   arid
Co.; and the California All-Stars,
although   not   as   good   as   last
year's team, still tiie pick of the
mid-term granduating students in
California high  schools.
It has been generally accepted in
competent refereeing circles that
accidental back court fouls are not
called. When a basket has Just been
scored and the offensive team takes
the ball out of bounds and starts
lo bring it up floor, an opposing
player who has lagged behind the
play sometimes accidentally bumps
an  opponent.
The players and rets WALK the
length of the floor, line up and the
fouled player takes the single free
shot. Actually this type of call
penalizes the team which lias been
awarded the free shot. If the .accidental foul had not-been culled, they
(•mild have brought the ball UiP floor
;tnd unite conceivably could have
scored a basket.
Three times in that game the
refs called iiimecesmiry fouls on
back court plays which were obviously accidental. The game hardly produced two or three good floor
length rushes, or fast breaks vvitn-
iiut the everlasting toot of a whistle.
Al the start of the game, the superfluous calls were annoying, later
on they were maddening, and by
(luarter time they were just
plain disgust lag. Only the terrific
hist   iiuiirler   rally   by   the, Jayvees
American high schools, and thoy
don't have to play university tea"ms.
All these boos and catcalls which
punctuated Thursday's game were
directed at the two whistle-happy
referees. Yet the All-Stars will
leave here' with an impression of
an unsportnianlike, rude crowd.
It's a fortunate tiling the refs
didn't show any "Home town" calling- the stupid calls were equally
distributed  on   both   teams:
As a spectator who pays to see
basketball games, I still think the
role of a referee ls to speed up the
game, not slow lt down.
