UN Flag Hoisted
As Bagpipes Play
A Scottish pipe band paid tribute Tuesday as one Cans*
dian and one East Indian student hoisted a hand-made United
Nations flag on the campus.
As  members  of  Canada's  only$>-
student U.N. club, Shirley Daniel-
son and BUI Paterson last year
made the only U.N. flag which existed in Canada. It was hoisted
last October, the only time a Unit
ed Nations flag had blown in a
Canadian breeze.
Tuesday the international emblem went up again, In the hands
of Henry Hicks and Ragbir Basl.
The flag was paraded down the
Main Mall by members of Varsity
"Pipe Band, and unfurled by U.N
club members Clare MacGHlvary
and Marnle Wilson.
President Norman Mackenzie
spoke of the flag as "our only hope.
Under this flag, we as human be
lngs may be able to live together,'
he said.
"Without it we face disruption,
destruction and possible annlhila

Escaped Monster At Large Here
An escaped monster variously
identified as everything from a
mastadon to a* rabbit, is now definitely known to be at large on the
UBC" campus after leaving a trail
of havoc and destruction from the
lllalue.border crossing to Vancouver.
UCMP officers In Vancouver and
Hip lower mainland have refused
comment on the unexpected menace from the other side of the
bolder, but. late reports from points
already struck indicate a casualty
toll in the thousands and destruction  figures   approaching   a   nine-
figure mark.
Police, ln refusing comment,
stated that they did not wish to
alarm the population until a disaster plan and animal hunt has
been organized.
Meanwhile,- at the University of
B.C., students have taken matters
into their own hands upon reports
that the beast lias been soen in
the  vicinity.
How it got here without being
run over by a trolley bus remains
a mystery. Registrar's office reports that as yet It has not attempted to register.
AMS president Nonie Donaldson
late Wednesday issued a plea for
skilled hunters to track down the
animal and exterminate it before
it causes the history of the university to end abruptly In a ghastly
blood bath of screaming victims.
Already three stalwarts have
volunteered. They prefer to remain
unnamed for fear of retaliation by
the monster's family. Ammunition
is being supplied through the par.s
Mimeographing machines in thc
AMS office are turning night and
day In an attempt to get out in
structions as to what to do in case
a student meets up with the animal.
Conflicting reports coupled with
tho scantiness of Information being released hy officials prevents
this publication from passing on
the more Important of these Instructions.
If the hunters sight the animal
they are under orders to shoot, to
kill. Students are requested to remain calm should the chase happen through any lecture rooms.

One Down * - Now What ?
Our late lamented friend Athletic
Lethargy seems finally dead for good and all
Bonfires and parades, freed from his clutch,
are shoving spirit to new heights. Is it, of
course, to be hoped that we do not simply ,
go on to bigger and better bonfires until the
whole university is engulfed in flames. From
here concrete action in the form of atten-
dence at games and lots of ballyhoo at intermission time is needed.
Bu,t junbappily Athletic Lethargy's relatives, Lethargy in General Activities and
Lethargy ,in Student Government are still
stumping the campus, reaping hosts of
empty halls and stifling creativity on the way.
The LPP Club, we note, is dead. The
student Tories are battling vigorously for
^.eath and, the Student Liberals are even having trouble with their speakers.
The U.N. Club reports trouble in keeping UN. Week from bogging down midway
and the Parliamentary Forum has been de
cidedly lacking in its traditional vim and
vigor. Of the Visual Arts Club, which took
the campus by storm a year ago, we have
hoard nothing and even the dear old SCM
has been decidedly quiet.
Then,, too, there's the Sociaf Problems
Club, one-time storm center of roaring cross-
campus political feud. Where is it now ?
And what of the CLU ? Isn't anybody having
his civil liberties tramped on?
In short, we're in a sad state. The Student Peace Movement is throwing flame right
snd left but about the only reaction they're
getting is a handful of jeering students.
This type of lethargy is far more difficult
to counteract than athletic lethargy because
it requires an intelligent and finely balanced
attack. Razzle-dazzle and ballyhoo will knock
cthjetic lethargy for a long low-flying loop
but it won't touch general lethargy. Perhaps,
though, lhe spirit created by the athletic
attack will seep upwards through the campus. It seems our only hope.
Behind The Eight Ball
To4sijr Gym Fund Chairman Bill Haggert
goes before the Mardi Gras Committee to
plead for a contribution from the Mardi Gras
proceeds for UBC's War Memorial Gym.
While it will be recognised that the.need of
off-campus charities is indeed great and that
these groups should receive a portion of the
IjaU profits, it must be remembered that the
fate of t)ie new gym—a memorial to B.C.'s
war dead—hangs on our raising $25,000.
If w$ can raise this amount, a sizeable
contribution can be expected from federal,
provincial and civic governments. If we fall
through lhe governments will lose interest.
TJjo long-standing policy of the committee has been to change recipients of the profits each year. It is true that the Gym is not
strictly a charitable organization but the precedent-breaking diversion to the Gym will
not be permanent. Right now we, the students, are behind tho eight ball.
We have got to find $25,000 and find it
fast. Ona of the best ways to raise a part of
il is through functions such as the Mardi
The Ubyssey hopes that the Greek Letter Societies will treat Mr. Haggert generously—without forgetting their over-all obligations to charity.
And All That
This column has never exhibited $ particularly deep or burning interest in.the doctrine of original sin. Fact is, we had always
thought it rather a nice piece of work drummed up by a hungover theologian suffering
pangs of conscience.
Our theologian friends had always sluf-
fed over the topic in the manner of man casually mentioning the fact that he met a gorilla
in bis clothes closet. But VCF's well-oilerl
wind-machine, Dr. Bob Jones, rammed the
point home with the ferocity of an inquisition
Jesuit thumb-screwing an atheist.
In fact pr. Jones acsribed a goodly hunk
of the world's ills to the fact that man is
inherently an evil beast who has somehow
gqt ajl gooed up with the sins of Adam.
What's more, Dr. Jones told us quite
bjuntly that you couldn't get out of this rut
by becoming educated. You had to feel and
accept the power of God to yank yourself
up by the bootstraps.
Now we must confess that we don't real-
}y know what, if anything, God is. Nor did
Dr. Jones help us by giving out any hints.
Maybe you just bump into1 Him between lectures some day and, bingo, you're all set.
But the point is that Dr. Jones ha.s told
uk the solution to our ills is emotional nol rational. And this, coming from a university
president, is a bit unsettling. (We would
refer our uncountable and beloved readers
to the American Mercury's description of Bob
Jones University in an issue of a year ago
just in case they  think it's something  like
by Les Armour
UBC. But anyhow it's a university and it gives
degrees and requires certain endeavors from
its students.)
The root of this thesis is that man is supposedly an organism neatly adapted for life
in the physical universe as we know it. But
a certain group of Christians are of the opinion that he must be transformed into a sorne-
thing-I-know-not-what (a bit like John
Locke's substance) which will be fit for an
existence in a herafter.
The hereafter'is the important thing. The
here and now is much too messy. True, tho
Christian (even ithis brand) must wrestle
with the here and now but only because in
the match he gets ready for the herafter.
Thus man must become what he is not.
This, to us, is a bit like balling blazes out
of the square because it doesn't happen to be
a circle or cursing the big because it isn't
a horse.
Man, after all, is an organism with cer
tain propensities and desires and the point
of the whole game we call organised living is
find out how best to fulfill these desires for
the maxmimurn number of people.
Dr. Jones and his emotional games don't
Rive much of a hand in this damnably complex job. And, what may be worse, Dr. Jones
and company are doing a great disserice to
those practitioners of more reasoned religion
11 i.s high time those who are prepared to put
lboir religious point of view forward on a
reasoned basis came out and gave the rabble-
rousers a raking over the coals.

Dear Sir:
I was momentarily encouraged
to see that the Tory Club was reviving in time to pick up Its grant
from the AMS. 1 was encouraged
that la. until I read that they were
"not going to take part ln the functional dispute within the PC.
Party In British Columbia." It
would take political courage for
the Campus Tories to support the
temporarily beaten Young P.C.'s
in their fight to rid the Party of
the reactionary leadership of Herbert Anscorobe. Evidently they
haven't got it.
Then too, I see that they plan
to continue to advocate the historic
Conservative policies which (they
say) have contributed to the greatness of Canada. These historic policies have been burled |7 the ex*
press wish of the Canadian people
for the past 15 years. The Tory
Club In rising from the grave
should leave their outworn philosophy of "dog eat dog" In the soli
from whence they have come; unless they Plan on returning soon.
Political cowardice and an out-
wprn philosophy are not much for
the Tory C|ub to build on. Perhaps they should Invest their AMS
grant In a tombstone.
Liberally yours,
Vaughan Lyon.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Ever since I started Varsity this
September, I have wanted to play
basketball. The first week I was
able, with great difficulty, to find
on what night the first practice
was Jo be held. The following week
I was a little more unfortunate,
however, and couldn't find any Information on the subject. I was
then coldly Informed to read the
notices. Ah, now I was an the right
Everywhere posters were printed: "Come to the basketball practice every Tuesday and Wednes
day night at 6:00. All girls welcome."
Six oclock is dinner time; but
who minds playing a strenuous
game like basketball for two hours
on an empty stomach?
I stayed up late on "Vfonday to
have all my homework completed.
On Tuesday, about noon, a girl
approached me and said in a chilly
tone, "Why weren't you at practice
last night? Have you no Varalty
enthusiasm? Anyone who wants to
play can surely find time. By the
way, the nights are Monday and
Tuesday this week because the
sym is In use on Wednesday."
Oh, well, I could still go Tuesday night. I rushed home from my'
lab, changed my clothes, bolted a
piece of celery and started back
to university. Quickly I changed
and went out |>n tho floor on tho
double (to ^nake a good impression) only to find a floor full of
boys. I went off the floor on tin
triple, clmnfted, waited for the bus
for half an hour (with the basketball posters all around me) and
Kot home just as everyone was
finishing a  chicken  dinner.
All I can say, and it goes for a
lot of people on the campus, is that
I hope I'BC has ils unique information system patented, because
I certainly wouldnt want anyone
else to/adopt It.

Korean President
Millstone' For UN
Korea's president Syngman Rhee is a millstone around thc
neck of the United Nations, Elmore Philpott, noted Vancouver
columnist told a student meeting at UBC Wednesday.
Mr.   Philpott   was   speaking
conjuction with United Nations
Week, which started here Tuesday.
His statement came ln reply to
question from the packed meeting.
He said Rhee's governmental
methods were not democratic. But
he believes the prospects of world
peace to be much brighter now
than they were four months ago,
as the Korean war has provided a
sobering Influence on the great
powers concerned.
India, the noted journalist said,
"is the most influential member
nation of the U.N. and stands In
the balance of power position."
"India," he said, "was the first
to   recognize   the   communist
danger within her own borders and do
something about it. He told the
meeting imprisonment of communists in India was a good thing.

Writing a guest column on a subject which primarily concerns the
atudents of UBC Is no easy task.
Many of you.will undoubtedly ask
"What reason has this guy to stick
his nose into our business 7''
Are you sure lt is Just your business?
This university Is a public institution, supported by the man in
the street directly or Indirectly
through his government. Therefore,
1 feel that every tax payer In B.C.
Is—or should be interested ln this
Sadly enough, I do not think,
the average citizen is particularly
Interested in UBC. In fact, many
people believe It to be Just another tax burden. There ls little
feeling of loyalty to the school
and an almost complete apathy towards Its problems.
1 attended the University of
Washington-Minnesota game re
cently 111 Seattle. After the game
I caught a cab to downtown Seattle
abd the first question the driver
asked me was, "How did our Huskies do today?"
Our Huikitt
"Our Huskies" indeed. I have
yet to hear anyone aside from students or alumni refer to the Thunderbirds as "our Thunderbirds."
When the taxi drivers of Vancouver, the shop clerks, street car
motormen, school kids and housewives begin calling your teams
their Thunderbirds, I believe your
problem will be solved.
You cannot expect a man who
has not attended your university
to take the same interest in it as
an alumnus. He has to be sold.
You can not expect him to become wildly enthusiastic over the
number of BA or MA degrees attained in one year.
But show me the man who can't
be sold a winning team of any
And once a man Is Interested in
any one phase of the university's
activities, 1 think it would be much
easier to sell him on any other
phase be lt athletic or academic.
School Prido
His pride in "his" school will
not stop at the end of the football season. It will grow throughout the entire year. Once it is
"his" school, he will want to see
it excel In everything.
He will want his sons and daughters to attend "his" school.
I think the interest shown by
UBC students in the athletic program Is a fine thing, but enthusiasm is not enough.
You have a selling Job to do. You
can start with your parents anfl
their friends.
There are 6.000 of you, If each
one can interest three people In
this school, you have done a job
for this university that will Insure
Its future as the finest university
in Canada.
You have a great motto—"Tuum
Est"—it is up to you.
Live up to It.

Team Works on Fundamentals As
All Players Return Next Season
To the average observer, UBC Thunderbirds' basketball
team appears to be well on its way to a successful spason. With
the team lacking both height and experience, however head,
mentor Jack Pomfret is saying little more than that their is
keen competition among players.
Since   normal   practice   sessions'
began more than 2 weeks ago, team
has been concentrating on fundamentals, and has only just began
to develop an offensive lineup.
"All the boys (now on the team)
will be returnjng next year,'' said
Mr. Pomfret, "so we are concentrating on fundamentals to have
them ready.
"Most players haven't any conference play," he continued "and
I am far from ready to announce a
definite team."
Willis Louie, John Southcott,
Art Phillips and Don Hudson are
only returnees from the last season's group and only the former
