LORD F: But Just think, Colonel
Brock|ng^Ton, just think what this means
to the Empah. UBC leads the way. Soon

school tie, Canada will again become an
integral phat of the Empah. The .British Empah will regain its lost glory—the spirit of
Nelson and Drake will again rule the
world .    . ,
COLONEL B: Wonderful, By Jove.
By Jove, Fothermg.iam
Its Come To This.
LORD F: And soon, cricket will become
Canada's national sport Think of it, Brock-
ing-Ton, can't you just hear thousands of'
people in Toronto's Varsity stadium muttering "well Played" as UBC meets U. ofT. in
the annual Canadian university cricket test
COLONEL B: Inspired, by Jove.

Varsity Students
Must Take Action
Ubyssey Editor-in-chief ■--
It is simple enough to take random pot-shots at obvious
evUa, The Problem starts when' thp wreckage has been shot
away and a positive program must be put in its place.
In this, the last of our six-article series on educational problems, we shall endeavor to give some direction to our comments,
tie our attacks together, and suggest a tenable goal for academic
endeavor. JtttjJOi
Junk The Chrome
Forthright Intellectual leadership
is Immediately necessary If we are
to stave off the global, cataclysm
which threatens to shove us bactt
Into tiie stone age.
That means that we will ha/re to
junk some of Che gleaming chrome
drastically pare our vocational education program*, demand that'tha
lid ot Secrecy which Bhrouds much
ot our research In the physical
sciences be torn oft, and stimulate
our humanists, our phllosphers, and
our social scientists to action.
The time is short, we must have
action. If necessary we must rise
In protest and see to lt that current
administrators a>*e replaced by men
of more insight and courage, men
of open minds and men who are
not afraid to run smack Into tho
ufavorable scream of popular opinion.
Student protests got UBO moved
to Point Grey;* student action forced the university ahead to its present point of development. Student
protest can clean out the debris
and put our university back on the
Need For Reform
Some of tho reforms can be achieved at once with a minimum of
technical difficulty.
• 1. The exam system can be cleaned up. Replacement of the present
parrot system by a system wnich
would foster thought Instead of
stifling It can be achieved simply
by a stroke of the pen.*
2. Students can demand more
seminar courses and the administration could triple the present
number without in the least upsetting the present program.
3. The scholarship problem can
be settled once and for all. When
the scholarships provided by tlio
new federal grant are made available, students can demand that participation In student affairs he con
sidered in dispensing them.
4. Students can protest against
intellectual fiddling and timidity
in the classroom simply by getting
up in class and taking the instructor to task. No professor will refuse us a hearing.
5. Students can organize a mass
march   on  Victoria to  demand  a
j bigger share of the provincial bud-
| get. A government faced with aa
|election will be very ready'to lis-
I ten.
Tuum Est is more than an idle*
It -has heen a slogan backed by
action for the last 35 years.
Remember, if you don't act nobody will.
The Kickapoo club announced today that they are trying to get Louis Armstrong out on the Campus for their

physical education programs required for men and women In their
first and second years. Intra-mural
Mid inter-coTIeiglate sports events

A NOTHER liquor plebiscite is in the offing.
/\ Attorney-General Gordon Wismer announced upon his
return from London this week that voters *M be given a
ohance to vote out presenf archaic B.C. Hquof laws in tile
forthcoming provincial electoins.     "
Th* news must be accepted with reserve. We all well remember past successful attempts of tbe "dry*" to have piebia?
ette qwttfcma posed ih such a way as to confront the voter
with the alternatives of either condoning the status quo, or
sanethming what amounts to mass alcoholism       •
The question should be divided into several points.
tilt first point, tiie first step forward, would be to allow
eating establishments to serve drinks with food. These lieent*
ed restaurants should then not only be checked for strict ad*
hesion tofthe liquor laws, but could also be used at a wedge in
a campaign to raise tiie hygenic and culinary standards of
B.C, restaurants at large.
The Liquor Board could do a lot if it issued these licenses
with tiie strict provision that the establishment* serve food
and drinks and not just serve booze and sling hash.
The second point woald be the establishment of dean,
airy, comfortable and cheery cocktail bars. We do not want
a copy of the dubious beer perlor attfwwphere.
As for Sunday drinking; this 'could well be left to separate Lod's Day plebiscite.
Let's have a plebiscite by all means, but let's be sensible
abo^t it for a change.
Wanted: A Head
WE now shall with a kingdom deal
(Not a dominion, but a kingdom real.)
Its throne was vacant. The King was dead,
The crown awaiting a size twenty head.
Two score prophets the land did search
ter a man on whose head a drown, to perch.
At last they found the outsize cranium
Far North, prospecting for uranium.
They brought him southward, all truase* and tied
Anct took his squaw along for the ride. •
. Alas, t'was then the cries of anguish rt>$a *
for ti\e ladies a squaw was too strong a dose.
The ladies refused to perform le "dip,"
or allow their husbands to bow from the hip.
They snubbed the man and his native bride,
And the throne stay's vacant — out of pride.
And so Back North they went to work ahd freeze.
The prophets, scoured, searched the Southern Seas
for a King naive, if you wish, a fool
They could kick back to his South Sea Pool.
So on and on continues the row.
The crown still awaits the Massi (v)e brow.
More Thinking, Please
MR Mac Corkindale seems to have taken it. upon himself
to condemn the action of a public spirited citizen without having knowledge of facts that any mother of school-age
children finds second nature.
Mr. Supervisor, the consumption of milk, not oftly in city
schools, but also here on Campus, has dropped remarkably,
and not because we are drinking less chocolate milk.
Hie truth is, Mr. MacCorkindale, that it hurts to pay 10
cents for a half-pint of milk, especially when tbe Fraser Valley
is renowned as a Dairying area.
But we are not questioning the price of milk, sir, We are
merely remarking that it appears that you, as an elected civil
servant, should take the public weal more to heart.
Your accusation of 'opportunist' might be reflective.

Night's   mystic   spirit   beckoned
him;  his soul
Was quick to answer. From his
grasisy   bed,
In one brief gkn'ce, he first surveyed the whole
Vast universe. With earthly bondage shed,
He leapt to life. His ardent footsteps sped
Along the slllver corridors ot spate.
A radlault path of stars wos his to
And   all' the   blazing  meteors   to
Beyong  the   shotting  galaxies   he
To   pWittb  new nebuihiae,  whose
depth wore fraught
With myriad uniborn worlds. Then
home* he paiced,
TranscendUm*-? llgWt-yearr** ln a single thought:
"I sink to rest still marvelling that
Who guides  the  stars  oWce  died
for love of me."

Ring Or Not Robbie
After UBC Boxing
Although the Evergreen Conference shuns the sport, Athletic Director Robert Robinett firmly believes boxing will
have to be reckoned with in the near future at UBC.
And Mr. Robinett holds to this opinion despite the fact that his
embryo boxing club has been held back trom making Its intitlal start
by lack of ring facilities.
* * *
But ring or no ring Rdbdnett feels that 23 students who Indicated
their willingness to learn the art of pugilism show a boxing trend at.
the Point arey establishment.
"When we get our ring set up in the new gym," said llohlnett ytstor-
day," it will be a big boosit to local amuteui* boxing as well as collegiate. At present amateur boxers In Vancouver have no place to go
when they cliijib to the tap of the local heap. When we get our club .
going they'll have a chance to go to UBC and compete against top
collegiate  mixers."
Iloblnett commended (the action of local boxer Leu Kupchak who
spurned a scholarship at the North West's top boxing boxing college,
Gonzaga, in favor of entering UHC next term.
"We've heard so much about local hoys making good abroad. Now
we'll be able to see a local kid make good at home.'' ,
"If more local athletes like Len decided to stay at home and
attend UBC our athletic standards will certainly Improve."
Robinett admitted the Evergreen Conference has generally looked down upon boxing* owing to the much publicized injuries resulting
from the sport.
"Hut," ho added, "that viewpoint isn't too sound. Why in my student days more people were injured from skiing than boxing."
'Bird Swim Team  Holds
UBCs Only Cup; Open Season
Follow the Birds to victory. Yes, the Thunderbird Swim
Team, holder of the conference cup for three years in a row,
makes it's debut this season down at Everett, Washington, tonight, where they,tangle with Everett Junior College in an
Inter-Collegiate Swim Meet.    <$	
Although they have lost some
of their lettermen from last year,
they still have, through the addition .of some new talent, all the
material for a tremendous season.
Startling off the roster, returning
lettermen Don Smyth captains the
team, assisted by co-e'aiptan Gord
Patter, »Uo a lettenman. Other returning lettermen are Peter Iiuss-
tig and Max Bertram. Also carrying a* large part of the load will
be three new Swedish swimmers
who Peter brought back with him
When he returned home for a visit
last summer:   Palle  Cardell,  Tor-
sten Bengston and Olaf Olsen.
Handling the diving assignments
will be veteran divers Al Berth-
wick and Dick Clayton, who have
been working out regularly. Team
coach Doug Whittle feels quite confident alboult his teams success ln
'52; and why not, there ls only
one Conference Cup residing in
the showcases of the MAI), and
that is for swimming, won three
years In  a* row.
The J.V.'s start off their schedule' by meeting tlio YMCA on
Saturday. The team will be captained by Mi-It Skye who, to dalte,
bas shown  the  best  times.

ver    gym    Varsity    Thunderettes
dropped a heart breaking decision
to a power packed squad from Kit-
Tiie Varsity gals took an early
8-2 lead, but, In the "second quarter Kits began to roll and managed to pull into a* lG-all tie a't
the half way mark. During this
first half, Eleanor Cave was the
sharp shooter on the floor, and
continued to score consistently
throughout the second half. Eleanor finished up with nearly 20
points whlich almost eclipsed the
season's record. ,
During the latter canto, the two
teams  matched  each  other  point
for point with the Kits coming out
on the top end of a 38-3G score.
Mewnle Summers, perennial
star with the Eilers who Is currently playing for Kits, was very
good during the latter half of the
game and emerged as the top scorer for the opposition.
Sheila Moore can vouch for the
l&xness of the refereeTTflT as ~ she
came out with an Injured arm
which is now encased iff T nice
white Sling. However, with coach
Joan MacArthur running the girls
through two practices each week
results are bound to improve.
Tonight the gals go against B.
M. Olarke In which" should be a
basketball game de luxe. Each
time these two clubs tangle, there
are fireworks—and this is as good
a reason as any to come out and
support the gals.

UBC thunderbirds tangle
with Whitworth tonight in a

,   Simply because the  Whitworth

Saturday night 'Birds meet Eastern Oregon,, at Spokane and their
chances of a win are quite high.
The Thunderbirds haye lost 20
