UBC Socialists To
Picket Arms Ships
Charge  Interference  With
Fellow Members Of UN
UBC students plan to picket the S.S. Islandsides now
loading at Ballantyne Pier in protest of the shipment of arms
to Chinese Nationalists.
A resolution condemning the ac-'
tion is expected to be passed at today's meeting of the CCF Club and
arrangement's made to form a picket
line Thursday morning. If the resolution is defeated the pickets will go
as private individuals, executors of
tho club said yesterday.
Isobel Cameron, president of the
club, told the Daily Ubyssey "We
condemn the action of Canada as a
member of the United Nations, in-
terferring in the internal affairs of a
fellow  member."
Members o the Student Christian
Movement also plan a "campus picket
pool" for all those interested in the
protest action but no decision is expected from the executive.
"We do not anticipate any violence
on the picket line but we intend to
stand our ground," spokesman of the
SCM  revealed.
Strong opposition t'o the action is

Free Love?
Idaho State Law
Delays Love
Moscow, Idaho, Nov. 1&—The course
of young love never runs smoothly
but Idaho State laws try to make it
as rugged as possible.
Idaho law states that ". , . any
women wearing a man's frat'ernity

by imprisonment of 90 days or a fine

Idaho law students took the statute
apart a little more.
Any person who wilfully wears i'he
badge of any Greek letter fraternity

Old  Council  Sorry
If Gym Fund Down
Members of last year's students' council were "extremely sorry" for any harm done to
the War Memorial Gymnasium
Fund by what they termed "irresponsible actions of a member of the student body."
This was the reaction of
Grant Livingstone, Bob Harwood and other members of
last year's council.
Livingstone and Harwood were
among the first to enter the Armories.
A broad grin passed over the faces
ef the two men when Bob Dodds
publicly made  his apologies.
Dodd used the deflamatory and
overused "misappropriation" in his
amendment at the previous AMS
Some time after the meeting Dodd
made a personal apology to Living-
atone saying that he intended no
malice but was just thinking of the
funds of the society.
"I don't hold it against him," said
Livingstone, "but I do think it was
very   irresponsible."
Both former student government
officials felt that the report was very
fair and that it lays the basis for
student financial affairs in the future.
They feel that it would be mast un-
iair to castigate former members of

the last AMS meeting shows the re-
' markable maturity of student's thinking and ability to discuss intelligently." :a;,s

Grant Livingstone and Bob Harwood have been cleared
of all responsibility for Council's inability to live up to its
obligations to the War Memorial Gymnasium.

Finance Investigation Committee yesterday cleared Livingstone and Harwood, former AMS president and
treasurer, of charges of diversion of

No Dishonesty
The committee stated further that
as a result of full enquiry, "the committee is now in the happy position
of being able to announce that it
has found not the least evidence of
dishonesty or breach of faith on the
part of any office or member of
the society."
It laid the blame for the present
financial situation mainly on over-
optimism of the past two councils, a
tendency last year to deal with generalities rather than details, and an
"unsuspected weakness in the control
over  expenditures."
Press Officer

Ham Croquets Blamed
In Acadia Poisoning
Staphyloceus infected ham croquets were blamed for the
poisoning of fifty-one Acadia Camp residents last Saturday
in a report from Dr. C. E. Dolman, head of UBC's department
of bacteriology.
"The   staphylococcus   entered   the$ • .. ,.

ham croquets producing a toxin which

were exposed,"  the report stated.
"After being cooked the ham was
minced and mixed with boiled rice
and the mixture left for some hours
at room temperature during which
the bacteria multiplied and produced
the  toxin."
"This toxin caused gastro-intestinal
disturbances coming on, as a rule, between 3 and 5 hours after consumption
which are very unpleasant while they
last but usually clear up in a few
hours  without  complications."
"Tlie staphylocoeus is a very common mincro-organism being often
present on the skin and in the nose

as in the air of rooms. Fortunately

"I have consulted with logging Operators and other industrial heads in
and around Vancouver," he said,
"and they all assure me that an Industrial First Aid Certificate is of
very definite value in obtaining employment in these fields. Many employers give preference to men with

students interested in summer employment, and those aiming for permanent  employment."

Why T
ram rares
Students from New Westminster have had
nasty words for the B.C. Electric lately because the tram company cancelled special
university rates on its interurban tram lines.
A student who travels by tram to university
now spends 51 cents a day for transportation,
a sizeable chunk out of any budget.
Previously, it cost a New Westminster
student just about half that to travel from
home to classes and back again. For one
dollar he could buy ten tickets good on New
Westminster buses, the interurban tram line
and Vancouver street cars. He went from
home to classes for 13 cents, a daily budget
of 26 cents for transportation.
Rightly enough, students of the Royal
City have been asking for an explanation
nf the sudden jump.
The B.C. Electric's answer is a story that
is growing almost threadbare these days:
"continually rising costs of materials and
labor," but in this case it seems to be borne
out by the facts.
In the first six months of this year, the
company's Central Park interurban line
suffered a deficit of some $140,000 on its
passenger operations.
In the first six months of this year, the
company's Central Park interurban line, the
one in question here, suffered a loss on its
passenger operations of some $140,000. The
B.C. Electric presents this as one of the foremost reasons for the boost in fares.
The wisdom of the B.C. Electric in supposing that each line of its many operations
should be self-sufficient is somewhat doubtful, but it is still apparent that any operation
which loses $140,000 in six months will be
neither efficient nor of the greatest benefit
to the public it sevves.
As the B.C. Electric points out, the fares
which university students enjoyed in. interurban tram lines were set in 1912 and to
expect any firm to provide services at 36-year
old prices is out of the question.
Stab In The Back From The Probers
The probers of the "Plant committee"
took a rather mean, below the belt punch
at Grant Livingstone and Bob Harwood
Their meticulous, 35-page survey of student finances on the campus winds up with
the observation that "it is not in the good
interests of the society for a senior member
of Council to accept a position in a provincial
national or international student organization."
It's an obvious slam at Grant Livingstone,
head of the Canadian delegation to the International Union of, Students, and at Bob
Harwood, president of the National Federation of Canadian University Students.
"The first duty of any Council member
is to the members of the Alma Mater Society,"
say the probers. "It is not possible for a
.senior member of the Students' Council to
accept a responsible position in any one of
the aforementioned organizations and continue as effectively as members of Students'
With this one exception, Plant's committee
has steered clear of such personal incrimina
tion and individual stabs in the back. It is
disappointing to see them climax their hard
work in this way.
If Livingstone and Harwood spent less time
at their jobs of President and Treasurer because they branched out into these "national and international organizations" it was
obviously in the interests of student government at UBC just as a business man joins the
Rotary Club and for the same reasons, as
a matter of fact, that Canada joins in the
work of the United Nations.
To restrict senior officers of Students'
Council to the narrow rut of their local
duties is an unthinking sort of university-
nationalism along the same lines as the old
"we ain't going to fight no foreign wars" outlook.
Obviously, both UBC and the students
involved profited from participation in these
organizations dedicated lo uniting students in
a forum where they swap their problems..
And obviously the persons to sit on such organizations are the leading student officers
of any university.
letters to the editor
Dear Sir:
I would appreciate space in your
paper to reply lo the letter to tha
editor relative to myself and signed
by Les Langley. Thi.s letter appeared in your publication of Friday,  November 5.
I regret exceedingly that Mr.
Langley, holding the opinions expressed in his letter, did not take
he opportunity to challenge me at
the lime of my meeting ai' the university, when I could have dealt
with his points personally before
the marvellous audience which attended.
It is rather .strange that Mr.
L.'inglry, holding, as his letter
vet.uld appear i'o indicate, a high
regard for "truth and objectivity",
should appear himself to be such
a stram.er to that. Air. Langley
states that T Was. particullarly misleading as regeird.s my remarks
relative to Yellowknil'c, and purports Vo set me .straight on the
dental services in that, territory,
and challenges my statement that
an expensive airplane trip i.s required in case of dental emergency.
Apparently your correspondent
could net have bci n paying much
ali'entii'ii to my ivmark.-, becaiee
at no lime did t discuss: medical
costs ui' needs ai Yellowknil'c. The
only referuece 1 made to this matter was as regards Atlin in Northern British Columbia, whose only
means of ingress and egress are hy

horse in tlie Yukon Tcrrii'ory.

knife. He explained at some length
in his letter hew dental emergency
denial attention is performed by
Dr. Stanton of the Con Mine Hospital and that in addition a demist
visits Ycllowknife once a year to
do whatever work is necessary.
Mr. Langley's information is away
behind time. There is a splendid
$250,000 hospital in Ycllowknife,
adeqautcly staffed, and if anyone
requires dental attention, t'hey have
only to» visit Dr. A, G. Wong,
whose office is in the Capitol
Theatre  Building.
In talking about public ownership, Mr. Langley use the example
of the Canadian National Railways
operated by the Dominion government', but failed to point out that
the Canadian National was brought
under public ownership by a government that believes in private
enterprise and who only took it
over in order to rescue the shareholders. It has not been operated
with a view to proving the efficiency of public ownership, because, apparently the Federal
Government is more guided by the
desires of the C.P.R. than by efficiently operating the C.N.R. If
proof of this is needed, then let
Mr. Langley explain why mail has
been taken off the Canadian National and transferred to i'he Canadian Pacific at the first: point of
contact, when both lines were going to the same destination. Also,
why, when the C.N.R. has very
easy grades through the Rockies,
they are held to i'he freight rates
of the C.P.R. with very heavy
grades. And again, why is the
Trans-Canada C.N.R. tied down to
a schedule comparable with the
(' P.n. when il is possible for the
public-owned railway lo cross
Canada   in   far  less  time  than  thai
taken now.
I sincerely hope that Mr, Langley will accept in the future closer
adherence to truth and objectivity
and hope that by the time he
graduates he may know more of
basic   economics,
Sincerely   yours,
Harold E. Winch
Dear Sir:
Lately Mr. Paul Plant and others
have rather glibly tossed about
the phrase "collegiate gothic."
There seems to be a prevelant im-
architectural style known as Col-
pression that there is a legitimate
legiate Gothic.
This is quite false. The years
leading up to the time when our
university buildings were designed
were devoid of any one particular
style. The period was one of ex-
mosi' incredible hodge-podge of
phony, hypocritical "adaptations"
of every conceivable historical
What is now referred to as "col-
uberant and often fantastic eclecticism during which it is now recognized that architectural taste
was lower than it had been for
centuries. In place of a healthy
style there came into being an al-
legiate gothic" was one of those
bastard children, an illogical, imitative, artificial product of confused and pretentious minds.
The words "collegiate gothic"
were originally derogatory, indicat
ing this unfortunate fact, and it
is highly amusing to observe the
defenders of our university buildings quite innocently employing
the phrase as if it were some sort
of justification for what' has been
Yours truly,

The first contingent of Mr. Pigskin's guests from Shaughnessy
Hospital saw last Saturday's game
against Linfield. One of the party
turned out' to be an ex-Blue Bomber; another had seen no football

All hands seemed very pleased by
Iheir outing, and were loud in

Johnny Haar, M.C. of "Pigs(kin"
reports that he hopes it will soon
be possible to take entertainment
up t'o the bed-patients at Shaughnessy who cannot come to the
campus. For example, if arrangements can be made suitably at
the hopital, Jim Argue, president
of the Player's Club, states that a

there, probably in the New Year.

Briefly Noted
by   leon  lipson
Someone should be strongly
censuren for organizing a drive for
text-books which were to be sent
to Europe and then failing to make
arrangements for shipment. I visited Hut B-2 on Wednesday, follow-
isg up a Ubyssey story that "Free
Text-Books" were to be had "For
the Asking." The text-books were
there, but there was no one around
to give me permission to walk off
with several dozen. I could have
walked off with as many as I
From other sources, I learned
that these books had been lying
around for months, many students
had been helping themselves to
them, they were scattered all over
the floor a few days ago, and ISS
was called in to straighten them
Who is responsible for this
shameful affair and what is going
to be done about these texts?
' It seems to me that the 35- member USC could be made to serve
more effectively than an organizer
of blood drives, a medium for
usually ineffective disciplinary
legislation or as a "labor" source
for minor committee work.

'Commerce Control'
Opposition to.an alleged move
to place control of AMS finances in the hands of the Commerce Department forced postponement of a decision on the
.Finance Board recommended
in the Plant Committee report.
Recommendations in the report included appointment of a. four-man
board composed of commerce students
to assist' the treasurer in his duties.
Members of tho board, consisting
of a member from each of second,
third, fourth' and fifth year commerce, would be appointed for the
duration of their university life, Tlie
move was suggested in order to
ensure continuity in student finances.
First opposition to tlie committee's
recommendation came in the form of
an amendment that tho board
be appointed by Council from volunteers from all faculties.
Support for the amendment came
from George Kelly, commerceman
member of the Plant Committee,
Despite opposition from several
speakers, including Plant himcslf, the
amendment  was  carried.
Debate then turned on the minority
report submitted by three members
of the Plant Committee, recommending employment by the AMS of a
peimanent business manager, as an
alternative to tho Finance Board.
Ray Dewar, manager of tho Campus
Shop, supported the minority report
on the ground that no student could
afford the time required to give full
attention to AMS finances
He was opposed by Dave Williams,
USC chairman, who stated that appointment of a business manager
meant that officials would bo in a
position lo seize power over student
finances and activities from the stu-

Pritchard Speech
Opens Education'
Week On Campus
An address by Mervyn M.
Pritchard, Educational Attache
at the United Kingdom Embassy  in  Washington,  opened
Education Week on the Campus.
Speaking to tho University Teachers' Association yesterday, Mr.
Pritchard outlined the present day
educational   system   in  England.
Recent changes have introduced a
diversification of courses, he said.
This has necessitated three different
types of high schools: academic or
grammar, necessary for university
entrance, technical, and one witha
lexicble curriculum not tied-eo requirements o' university or industry.
They were transported to and from
the stadium in privai'e cars. While on
the campus, they were supplied with
coffee, doughnuts, cokes and hot
dogs by the Legion,
Mike Lake, president of Branch 72,
said the vets enjoyed thc game immensely. "They all want to come
again," he said, "and when they
spread the word around, more will
want t'o come."
As a result the Legion is considering making arrangements to bring
larger parties of vets to events held
on the campus next term, Lakes said.
In addition, it is hoped it will be
possible to have features such as
Player's Club' productions taken to
thc hospital for the benefit of patients too sick to come out to thc
An unexpected attraction was provided Saturday when one of the vet's
won two free tickets to next Saturday's basketball game with a lucky
program number. Legion officials are
making arrangements to provide
transportation for thc lucky veteran
and his wife.
