UBC Lovelies Display Charms For Ubyssey Readers
BEAUTY ON DISPLAY is the feature of today's Ubyssey.
The lovelies were snapped by staff photographer Walt Sussel during course of travels yesterday, Purpose of pix was
to determine whether popular saying "90 per cent of girls
in Vancouver are good-looking—the other ten per cent go
to university"—is true. After one glance at these lovelies
we agree. All of the glamorous six are in the running for the
"Queen of the Sports Department" crown, to be awarded
in the annual goon issue next spring. Winner in the contest
will reqeive a great big kiss from Uncle Lc? and a yearlong contract as Sportish editor of the Ubyssey. Sorry boys,
all dates with the cuddlesome cuties must be mfde through
their Managing Editor.

Former CCF
Mayor Scores
Manitoba Gov't
H. D. Ainley, former CCF
mayor of Edmonton, told the
CCF Club Wednesday that
Social Credit would be no menace in B.C. if the people could
see through their double talk.
•Social Credit is an empty term."
he said "It is not social, and certainly does not give you any credit."
The principles of Major Dongilas
ire no longer followed by the gov
ernment of Alberta; the real believers in Social Credit have been
expelled from the party, Mr. Ainley stated.
He felt that it was a conservative government ln full support of
capitalism. "Thus it is no surprise, to me that two former members of the Coalition in.B.C. have
now joined the Social Credit party.
They are simply becoming more
conservative than they were."
Mr. Ainley criticized several aspects of the Social Credit's "government record In Alberta. He said the
County ftlan of school administration, by which a committee replaces
local school boards, was a backward step which violated the principles  of  responsible  government.
According to the speaker, the
Social Credit came into power at
an opportune time, at the end of
a depression and on the verge of
an oil boom.
The speaker said that it was very
difficult to talk againsit a government which has a surplus of eighty   million   dolleirs,  yet  this  pros-

The University has had to employ twenty extra men to
shovel snow from the pathways on the campus, the Ubyssey
was informed by Mr. T, Lee, superintendent of buildings
and grounds'.
Although some students are engaged in this work most
of the extra help has had to come from outside the campus.
Mr. Lee's office does not consider the snow fall unusual
for the time of year.
Canada Needs Own
Culture, Prof Claims
Canada will have to develop a distinct culture that is really
worth maintaining, if it is to avoid being swallowed up by the
United, States, Dr. S. Jamieson told students attending the third
Canadian Orientation lecture Wednesday.

Tower, editor-in-chief of the "Carleton'' handed In his resignation
to Student Council last week.
James Mulr, former Associate Editor,  now assumes the  post.
Tower gave as tne reason for hts
resignation the 'pressure of stud

the sacrifice of his academic year.

Speaking on Canadian econ
omys, Dr, Jamieson su*ld what has
kept Canada ''torn Joining the
States in the past has been a desire to retain a separate identity.
Hut with improved communication,
he said, this is becoming increasing difficult.
Canada's dentral economic problem, Dr. Jamieson pointed out, was
to maintain herself as a nation
against the superior economic for
ees of the  U.S.
The economics professor spoke
of the Canadian paradox, ln which
Canada was willing to have its
cultural life a "pale carbon copy"
of that in the U.S., but at the same
time was willing to pay heavily
economically  to remain  Canadian.
He maintained Canadian economy is "inherently precarious" because of its great dependency on
foreign trade. In order to pay for
its wide variety of imports, Dr.
Jamieson stated, Canada specialized in producing large amounts of
a few types of goods, such as wheat
and newsprint. The fluctuations in
prices of these, ne claimed, made
Canada sul^ect to a boom or bust
To remain an independent na
tion, he stated, Canada must avoid
depending too heavily on one conn
try for Its foreign trade.
This waa stated by Dr. Gilbert
Tucker ln a noon hour address in
the current Canadian Orientation
In regard to the Senate, Dr.
Tucker cited the case df one senator who was s*till "functioning" at
the age of 102. Dr. Tucker recommended tlui't the function*** of the
Senate be taken over by the Mouse
of Commons.
Speaking of Canadian foreign
policy, Dr. Tucker said that Canada was at last following a ma
ture course, and was accepting Its
role in world affairs as a "medium power."
He observed that Canada's pre
World   War Two policy  had  been
one of "no commitments", and passive "hoping for the best."
In reply to a question about the
future of the Liberal party, Dr.
Tucker gave his opinion that in
the natural course of events, It
would be due for dlscarJT, because
of the people's periodic desire for
However, as Canadians do not
want socialism, and the Conservative party is ln a weak sta*te, the
Liberals ire likely to retain power
for some time.
Answering another question, Dr.
Tucker saidTie UeTleVbd the Ciwi-
udlan government system was superior to the American system. Ho
qualified tills remark, however, by
aiklnittlng that il was probably s>
mutter of acquirecTTasite.
In conclusion, Dr. Tucker made
reference to a remark made at the
previous tiAk about Canadian Imperialist feeling. He said that any
Canadians with iiwperialst tendencies could probably venf *flieli* mad

The Senate might well be abolished from the Canadian
government, at a saving of one million dollars a year to the
Canadian tax-payers.

Editor, The  Ubyaaey:
Dr. Darnett Savery recently
irave the students hte views en
fthe jwoapecta of 1962. According to yam January 17th Issue,
laAi#hter followed his remark
ithat "France wiW have half a
dozen miore governments in '52"
la this an theft the chairman
&f the Pliliosoipliy ana Psychology  Department  knows  about
Time For Action
JUST what Messrs Lyon and Anderson will accomplish with
"operation finance" now that Coalition has fallen and the
Ifbvernment is in a state of chaos poses a neat question.
We trust, however, that they will go through with the
Job and tha they will take full advantage df the fact that an
election is sure to be upcoming.
Hie university has had a very dirty deal from the
Johnson*Anscomb government. UBC has received a stead*
tly diminishing percentage of the B.C. budget.
Meanwhile costs have sky-rocketed, students are
harder pressed that ever before, and enrollments are falling.
The people of B.C. have a very real interest in their university. They are fully aware of the need to maintain not just
a university but a first-rate university on Point Grey.
This is an outstanding opportunity to make our voice
Go to It fellas! ?
Friends, Romans ...
THE ability to speak fluently and persuasively while on
one's feet used to be one sign of .an educated man.
but if the McGown cup debate held in the Brock lounge
Friday is any indication, that sign has apparently become
Debating on the resolution that Western rearmament is
harmful to world peace, four law students from UBC and University of Manitoba provided two hours of dull oration sparked by even duller jokes.
With one possible exception, the speakers failed to project
their voices, and their enthusiasm, past the lectern.
A similar lack of oratorical powers was noted at the last
general meeting of the Alma Mater Society when several
speakers, robed and unrobed, managed to spend several minutes saying absolutely nothing.
To make an effective speech in public is not an easy
matter. It requires many hours of training and practice.
But if university students, tiie future leaders of the nation, and more particularly law students, are unable to speak
effectively in public, who, then will be able to?

Editor, The Ubyssey:
From a> Christian viewpoint,
Mr. Fothertnghaan's -article —
unfortunately quite true to' tact
—of Ian. 12 had at toast two
big /auks; lt waa (productive
of lustful thoughts in the readers and It lowered the .dignity
and reduced respeat for women.
But what surprises me Is that
one article can produce so much
criticism when much greater
evils never rouse a whisper.
Where is the criticism about
the types and ahiupes of women's clothes which If anything
are designed to make any normal ma*i's tongue hang out?
About ithe flioior-Bhow tbe Engl*
neer's put on at their smoker?
About the covers n*nd What te
between ithe covers of such
widely-read magailnes aa Lite?
About dirty jokes. About the
advertising boards and shop
windows? About ihe floor show
at the Mardi Gras iball, the Pictures of the chorus of which
were ten times as lust-provoking as Mr. Fotheringham's article?
I have no praise for Al, hut
let us not strain ouit the gnats'
and swallow the camels.
Yours truly,
W. Plnson, 2nd Year
Just thought I'd drop you a
you wrote last Friday.     '
I'd just like yau to know that*-
I thought It was very subtle.
In fact It was so subtle that
only 3*8 sltuidentB came up fo
mc and said: quote "Ha, ha,
I guess she sure told you off,"
But I'd like you to know that
I bear no resentment. I mean I
could have addressed this letter to Frustrated Fk>. Bat you
see I didn't address it to Frustrated Flo because I knew if I
•addreased it to Frustrated Fl'*
you wouldn't like it. For that
reason I didn't addfeas it to
Frustrated Flo. See how considerate I am?
This brings us around to the
reason for the beefs aboivt thiat
column concerning certain sci-
enltiflc adds to a female figure
aa designed by modern manufacturers.
Now I wouldn't be so mean as
to suggest that the girls are
squawking because the truth
hurts. I don't think that has a
thing to do with It. I mean if
that is true why ls Ted Hiarp
beefing? That plaices Mm in a
very suspicious position. <$>
I don't know Ted Harp fr,om
Adam, but judging from the indignant tetttet be wrote which
displayed a magnificent lack of
a | sense of humour, I don't
think he ls any relation to
Adam. Io fact I doubt If Eve
would claim him m a descendant, either.
But this is being unfair.
Poor innocent Mr. Harp can't
•hit back. I will therefore invite him to a duel at 50 paces
with <a pair of the articles over
which the controversy rages.
This all bolls down to the
question: What Is happening to
the good old Ubyssey? Back ln
the nana old days of Jim Banham, Eric Nicol, v Ron Taggiart,
Luke Moylee, etc., anything
wwnt into the Caimpuswrag. The
Ubyssey may not ha*ve been a
lot of thing's but it was certainly Interesting. W you look (back
into the Ubyssey files you will
line concerning the column
see that one of the "goon" Issues today is about equal an
ordinary inane in those daya,
A college paper fs the place
to horse around a bit. And this
compus especially needs something to pep it up. What do
you think would have happened five or ten years ago If mi
impending * Victoria Invasion
was cancelled by a squeamish

there was hardly a murmur of
protest from the students when
the cancellation was announced,

The reason this column is
short Is that Fotheringham had
to leave his soapbox hurriedly
when Flo McNeill and Ted Harp
began pelting him with the objects which are molt to be mentioned and which started ths

Sorry, Girls
THE other clay a group of very nice young ladies came
down* to see us and we thought that we were in for a real
treat. But it turned out that these girls were from the WAD
and they were mad.
They were mad because we had insinuated that they were
wasting money by wiring their bowling scores across the
country for their Telegraphic Bowling League.
These girls made it quite clear that they do not telegraph their scores; they mail them. They just happen to
call it a Telegraphic League because ... ah ... well, they—
couldn't explain that.
Golly we're sorry, girls. Oh, we don't mean we are sorry
because we got some of the facts mixed up. We're sorry that
no telegraph boy can rush into the bowling alley and be
mobbed by a group of screaming women all grasping for
what he alone can give them . . . their bowling standing.

We note that Mr. Churchill has visited Washington, Mr.
Stalin has come back to Moscow, Viscount Alexander is going
to London and Barry Mather has gone to Page Two. Not to
bejundone, we have gone to Page Three.
The Managing Editor has developed a sudden passion for blondes and we had no choice. Never
fear, we dha>U soon be finished.
There remains, however, one serious question in our minds: Who
goes to university?
Obviously no university can, in
the long run, >be any better than
its students.
The cost of living continues to
climb, employment is ever more
difficult to secure. Only those who
have considerable supporHTrom
their parents, or scholarships are
able to attend University.
The federal government scholarship grants may ease the situation
somewhat   but   they   immediately
raise the ticklish question Involved
in the basis for awarding scholarships.
At the moment, most scholarship* and bursaries — pitiful though they are—are SwaftJeS strictly
Examinations Farce
on a basis of aoadeanic standing.
Academic standing lis an inteec-
tttftl pihrtuse which happens to mean
simply exomintlon results.
Yet almost everybody admits
that examinations, as they are how
conducted, are a complete farce.
Parhops nothing can be done immediately about the examination
But something can be done about
the method of awarding scholar'
Under the present sylstem the
student who dares to do tfome original thinking is comedlately pen
alized—-and the sliident who participates in student affairs is ctrlct-
ly behind the elghthall.
Yet our unlveraitee, in their current sad state, depend more and
more upon student activities.
Without drama groups, musical
societies, student newspapers, political dubs, religious olu.be, utd a
host of other aotlvitleis, we would
truly be in a grim state.
Thus, H has become the Immediate duty of the student who has
any interest whatsover ln his uni-

Health Manual Essentially Humane
Canada did not threaten United Btates or Ruseia—the only
countries known to possess atomic weapons. This fact should
be made clear at the outset,
lest these comments be misconstrued by those who make a
show of sniffling the wind from
the far left. One may ibe forgiven, then, a repetition that Canada did not threaten United
States or Russia when the Minister of National Health and
Welfare authorized publication
of the "Civil Defense Health
Service Mtanual."
This booklet is designed to
guide provincial and municipal
plans towards minimizing 1foss
of life from atomic, chemiioail or
biological 'Warfare.
Even to have gone this far
might be viewed alnisterly as
p belligerent act—equal only to
the heinous programme requesting volunteers for membership
,ln the SOM. United Nations So*
oiety and GOTO. Nevertheless,
we may 'be assured that the aim
of the publication Is essentially
humane. It does not llluetiwte
how to detonate an atoonoc bomb
or mount a chemical or Wolog-
ioal attack. On the contrary, its
essence is neighbourliness.
Ait the nuib ot Ma suggestions
is tihe need to have numerous
neighbours in our communities
who understand the basic principles of first aid. It Is important as a civil defense matter.
It is more Important as a common sense measure.
The services of clvlll defenders may never be required, tmt
knowledge of first aid may
prove a life-saving asset at any
time in the face of community
or personal disaster, while ln
the least it may quell the storm-
teara of a child with a scrapped knee.
It Is especially essential for
Community leaders, both present and potential, to supplement
their   value   as   leaders   by   a
, sure knowledge of what -to do
dn the event of an coident or
illness. '
In today's community, where
( common dangers are more real
than the atomic boimlb, someone else's knowledge of first
aid may save our lives. Consequently, it may be , prudent
for each of us* to encourage our
neighbors to acquire that In-
■Tliough first aid Instruction
Is easy to obtain, and the llihe
required Is short, neighbors are
notoriously prone to procrastinate. Obviously, intentions make
such useless splints and bandage that it might be wise to
conduct our neighbours to first-
aid classes.
These neighbourly* acts will
accelerate the process of learning, slmce they may practice
bandaging our arms, rather
than those of a chair. They
would also benefit from a stronger sense of security from the
knowledge that we too have
beet} exposed to first-aid training and stand ready to he neighbors when needed.
Ptuedo-lntellect Monopoly
Scholarships, therefore, must be
awarded with due consider;* tir
not only to academic standings but
also to the students participation
In c&imipus actvilties.
It's high time that the pseude-ln-
telleots who spend their time buried up their ears in prescribed
- teats in the fflfrwr stacks stopped
having a monopoly on university
They may appr-^r *.o be more
learned than their active fellows
bitt they are bound to be less use
ful members of society.
Such a change will require guts
on the part of administrators who
must deal with dull clods of professors who, in their undergrad
days, never dared venture be*
young the stacks, but it will be well
worth the effort.
This ls one question on Which
we can expect some action—and
Obviously no university ct*n, in
the long run, be any better than
its students.

Physics Professor
Impressed By UBC
"Tremendous a m ount di
work" done b*y first and second
year students in Canadian universities has impressed a European professor here.
Speaking of the comparative effectiveness of German and Canadian universities, Dr. F. Kaempffer,
professor of physics at UBC and
formerly at University of Goettlng-
en, Germany, told students ln
Physics 202 .Menday they need not
be afraid of any comparison with'
European students.
Dr. Kaempffer spoke ln the first
ot a series of orientation lectures
presented this week by UBC Inter-
National House. Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie opened the lecture series.
Though general standard of first
year students is higher In Europe
because of the greater opportunities offered in high schools there,
Dr. Kaempffer claimed, Canadian
students are able to catch up to
those in Europe by their "tremendous amount of work."
Describing the European system
at education, Dr. KaempEfer pointed out there are no exams such at*
Canadian students are accustomed
This absence of exams develops
ln students "an outstanding degree
of ability to do nothing."
Speaking en his impressions
ef Canada, East Indian student
Lai Varms brought s burst of
laughter from the ..audience
with his statement that "an
Indian In Canada is not the
same as an American in Paris."
He told the capacity audience
Canada has nothing to fear from
rising nationalism In the Kast.
which had nothing to do with communism tout is a revolt against
poverty and misery.
He warned against Canada's
economic subordination to the
USA and claiming lt will he a
happy day when Canada starts asserting herself.

Financial Statement as of December 31, 1951.
Of the eight major sports only
basketball and soccer thus far have
exceeded their budgets. The hoop*

their alloted $2,000 with tho
basketball season just past the baU

The soccerltles too, although
handicapped by the lowest budget
ln the major sports division have
gone overboard to the extent of
$6.00 and their season is likewise
only half way to completion.
Football, only one of the eight
to have finished their schedule listed a $272 profit and wil probably
he one of the few teams to do so.
Football had the largest budget
of all $2,750.00.

mere fraction of it's $1,600.00 budget but the trip to Victorian on tho

Although it's the team who

makes the ;.*f tar-dinner speeches, it's the good manager who
is responsible in some measure
I'or the success of the team.
The manager has a li'.*rge responsibility placed upon him by
the coach. This consists of manv
details which to the cusu.-l spectator seem very unrelated. Th.*

He cares for the tewm's in-

of all those hundreds of minute
and tedious details. In chosslng
a manager, the coach usually
tries to find a boy who is honest , dependable, imaginative
and one in whom lie lms confidence.
Two very important, requisite*-*,
ol' a good manager are punctuality and efficiency. The head
manager must be careful in the

delegating many of these jobs

Most head managers delegate,

cleaning the shoes, shellacking
the shoulder, hip and'rib pads;

to one or two assistants per

it convenient to put labels on

All of those things lead to
