 International Student Service Week Starts Mon.
Drive's Objective
Set at $3000;
Ends March 3
• INTERNATIONAL Student Service drive for
nearly $3,000 will break on
the campus Monday with a
full schedule of extensive entertainment planned for the
week's drive.
As an added incentive to the
faculties to contribute to the drive
Phrateres has made three pen-
ntnts, one each for Arts, Agriculture, and Applied Science. The
faculty which contributes most,
in proportion, will "capture" all
ihe pennants and may fly them to
the disgrace of the other two fac-
ultbs.
Tha price of Caf coffee will be
raised to seven cents during the
week, the extra cent going to the
ISS.
Features of the week will include a band concert by the COTC
band under Johnnie Bayfield
Thursday or Friday in the Quad.
Thursday noon students will wit-
• SCENES LIKE the ones above typify the spirit with which International   Student Service Week was welcomed on the campus in years gone by.
Perhaps some of these scenes may be brought back to life this year t o help collect the UBC's self-set c]uota of one dollar per student.

No. 53
Award Committee
For Student Work
Studies Nominees
• NOMINATIONS for Honorary
Activities Awards have been
submitted to the Awards Committee.
Tiie committee will meet in the
near future to decide who has
contributed most to undergraduate
organizational and student work.
Awards are given to thoss students who have served with most
distinction in any offices which
do or do not fall under the jurisdiction of any department of Students' Council.
The object behind such a plan
is to take care of those organizations which do not come directly
under the jurisdiction of LSE
such sa the War Aid Council and
Publications.
Winners must be members in
good standing of the Alma Mater
Society who have distinguished
themselves In undergraduate organization.
Freshmen Register
For Fraternities
• FRESHMEN who are Interested In joining a fraternity next
year are asked to register in the
AMS office Immediately. Registration is free and should be made
before March 1.
In the last four years freshmen
have not been admitted to fraternities because it was felt that
they should have a year on the
campus to learn something about
fraternities before joining them.
The result of this was the lack
of knowledge of frats by freshmen. The IFC Is, therefore, planning to give freshmen one or two
lectures this spring on the function
and operation of Frats to those interested.
MACKENZIE WARNS IRC
OF POST WAR PROBLEMS
• PROPOSALS of Dumbarton Oaks—although resembling
the Covenant of the League of Nations—may be more,
successful in preserving world peace through collective security than the League, but we must remember that governments will act only if they feel war is in their own national
self interest. ■■
This was the warning given
members of the International Relations Club yesterday noon by
President Norman A. MacKenzie
speaking on "Canada's Position
in the Post War World."
"Success of the t>umbarton Oaks
proposals depends on whether
governments consider it is hi their
own national self interest to risk
the lives of their young people
for international security," he said,
"and although the system of collective security under the League1
was a failure perhaps Dumbarton
Oaks will be more successful."
"We cannot solve the problems
of peace and order unless the
people themselves have security,"
Dr. MacKenzie said, "and In this
connection Dumbarton Oaks provides for an Economic Council."
There is no assurance, however,
that nations will not again raise
tariffs as the United States did
after the last war.
"We must not be cynical if we
do not attain Utopia immediately,'
Dr. MacKenzie concluded. "We
should give our support to any
proposals that show any signs of
Improving conditions."
International Relations Clubs
were first formed in Canada when
Dr. MacKenzie was Professor of
International Law at the University of Toronto. The clubs, which
are now at universities throughout the continent, are endowed
by the Carnegie Institute.
Books obtained by the UBC club
through the Institute may be obtained at the International Relations Club shelf In the Library.
'TAMING OF SHREW TICKET
SYSTEM     N A NUT SHELL
By JOAN MITCHELL
• YOU DON'T have to be a crystal gazer or an astrologer
to understand the intricate workings of exchange tickets
for the Spring Plays, says Ted English, president of the
Players Club. As a matter of fact you don't even have to
bother with them if: 	
1. You want to be one of the
500 students to whom free tickets
will be given for each of Wednesday and Thursday nights. Only
balcony tickets will be given out
for   Saturday   night.
2. You go to the Auditorium
Box Office at noon from today on
until all tickets have been given
out. If you want two seats together, present two passes.
Simple,  isn't  it?   At  least that's
what Business Manager, Jack Duf-
fus, thinks.
If you save bought exchange tickets, you may pick up your seat
tickets at noon from today on at
the Auditorium Box Office.
If you have bought exchange tic-
may get them at the Auditorium
Box Office. Tickets will be sold
al Kelly's on Seymour Street after
March 1. These reserved tickets
will be sold for any night.
WUS to Elect New
Executives on Wed.
• WOMEN'S Undergraduate Society    Faculty    Elections   are
scheduled for Wednesday, March
7 and Friday, March 9.
Wednesday's elections for next
year's presidents will be held in
the following rooms:
Agriculture—Ag. 100, Commerce
—Arts 208, 1st Year Arts-Arts 100,
2nd Year Arts-Arts 104, 3rd Year
Arts—Arts 106.
WUS will meet Friday In Arts
100 to elect the following executive: vice-president, secretary and
treasurer. The new WUS president, Nancy Pitman, will be Introduced at the meeting.
Committee Starts
Review of Findings
• GENERAL discussion formed
the   agenda   of   the   Student
Government Revision Board on
Friday at their last open meeting.
This morning the committee is
meeting to begin the co-ordination of its material.
Jack Hetherington reaffirmed
his belief in the Majority Report,
that is, that there be faculty representatives on Council, with two
additional Members-at-large.
Marshall Bauder pointed out the
merits of representation through
faculty presidents and their possible duties, though he did not
state his preference. He showed
how this would necessitate a
change in the constitutions of Arts,
Aggie, and Commerce.
UBC Invited to
Join Music Group
• UBC HAS received an invitation to join the Western Board of
Music, Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie, UB'C president, said today
on his return from a conference of
western universities in Winnipeg.
Membership of UBC on the
board would mean standardization
of training and examinations from
Grade 1 to university degree in
music, throughout the western
provinces.
Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba universities now comprise the
organization.
Grad Class Gift
Decision Reserved
For General Meet
• DECISION on the type of gift
to be presented to the university by the graduating class will
not be made until there is a general meeting of all graduates,
Jack Hetherington, president of
the graduating class announced
Friday.
The tentative plans call for the
gift of a piano, but this is not
definite. Hetherington said that
the executive will wait until most
graduates have a chance to express an opinion on the matter
before the decision is made.
He urged all graduates to pay
their $3.00 fee Immediately. Any
suggestions for a gift should be
forwarded to the executive.
Display Features
Chinese Artistry
• PIECES from an Oriental collection owned by Mrs. Edward
Lipsett will appear ln the Library
display windows for the next two
weeks.
Several embroidered panels appearing in the collection, reveal
the artists' skill in reproducing
the texture and pattern of robes
and In giving third dimension to
the figure groups. Chinese symbolism appears ln all the embroideries.
In one panel many colored
shades represent war and a swastika represents good luck.
A carp is chasing a Chinese dragon who causes an eclipse by
clutching ihe sun in the form of
a burning pearl.
Silver spoons from Yalta, the
Crimean city where the Big Three
Conference was held recently also appear ln the collection. A
scene of Yalta is carved on one
of the spoons. In addition, several snuff boxes in silver, jade,
and tortoise shell, some dating
from the 17th century, will be
shown.
Miss Smith is arranging the display. Books on Chinese art will
be available at the Reference
Desk.
Forestry Film To
Be Shown Monday
• FORESTRY, practised from
seedling to mature timber, will
be the theme of the film, "Trees
and Their Home," shown next
Monday at 12:30 In Arts 100.
The film will describe development of forest stands, of reproduction and forest management.
It will show the actual practise
of forestry on the Weyerhauser
holdings, largest of logging companies in the State of Washington.
Agriculture
Plays Host
To Academy
• SEVERAL hundred people thronged the Aggie
building Thursday night, for
the meeting of the Academy
of Science. One night' each
year one specific phase of industry is studied by the
Academy. Agricultural research was the topic for this
year's meeting.
Various phases of research work
in all departments of Agriculture
—Animal Husbandry, Agronomy,
Dairying, Poultry, and Horticulture were demonstrated for both
members of the Academy and the
general public. The meeting was
opened by Dean Clement, who introduced the topic for the evening.
Th» motto for one of the Poultry
department's display was "Why
hens should chew green grass." Egg
yolks all In a row, showing varying degrees of yellow pigment,
demonstrate the nutritive value of
eggs under different conditions of
feeding. The use of grains for
poultry rations was also demonstrated.
Charts and test tubes crowded
the Agronomy labs, when the
year's work on Fraser Valley soils
and appraisals of other B.C. agricultural resources was displayed.
A long time research problem in
animal breeding on the UBC Ay-
ershlre herd was demonstrated by
the Animal Husbandry department. This project supplies primary experimental material for
students in Animal Husbandry.
The Horticultural department
went on record Thursday night for
the statement that malnutrition ln
plants means malnutrition in animals and man, demonstrating this
with an exhibit of mineral deficient plants.
One of the main topics demonstrated in Dairying research was
that of tests for Mastitus—the
scourge of the Dairy industry.
Work on Mastitue has been done
this year by Florence Tamboullne,
ntss the traditional, infamous
Pub-Council basketball game, and
for Friday Mr. Maury Van VUet
has promised some boxing bouts.
"Hot" Threesome
Improvises Jazz
By BKUCE LOWTHER
•   IMPROVISED   jazz   was   the
highlight   of   last   Thursday's
meeting of the Jazz Society in tha
Brock Stage Room.
A trio composed of Doug Parker
on the piano, Jack Cohen on percussion, and Stu Scott on bass fiddle was featured in the session.
Cohen found himself without a
set of drums so instead he used a
magazine on the arm of a chair
and a pah* of wire brushes.
The boys started with their conception of Stan Kenton's "Eager
Beaver," and continued through
with such selections as "Tea For
Two," "Ain't Mlabehavln'," "Take
The A Train," "Lady Be Good,"
and "Sweet Lorraine" to end with
"Solitude."
For two solid hours, the trio
played some of the best improvised jazz ever heard in these
parts. Parker, In his own Inimitable style, led the music with
Scott and Cohen providing terrific rhythm behind him.
Cohen took one very good chorus on the magazine, proving thereby his excellent mastery of the
rhythm instrument. Scott showed
his control of the bass fiddle
while fitting in very well with an
improvised rhythm background to
Parker's excellent piano work.
Forum Passes Bill on
Compulsory Training
•   A COMPULSORY military service bill introduced by
Prime Minister Harry Castillou passed the Thursday
meeting of the Parliamentary Forum House.
After Leader of the Opposition
Doug Leit.ermann had presented
his objections to this resolution,
five members from the floor gave
their respective views.
Stating that representatives from
Great Britain, Russia, China and
the U.S. meeting at Dumbarton
Oaks had decided that a world
police force was the only answer
for permanent peace Castillou urged that this army be of both permanent and reserve nature.
"The main argument against such
a plan is that it would breed militarism," stated Castillou, "but this
did not prove to be the case with
France, Poland and Switzerland."
"These nations could not be
termed as aggressors althoigh they
had compulsory military training
before the war,'' he said.
When Leitermann stated that the
conscription in Poland and France
had been ineffective against the
German forces, the reply was given that their system of training
was outmoded and that "a reserve
army is needed to hold back the
enemy hordes until the permanent
police force can reach the country."
The Prime Minister pointed out
that engineers, doctors and other
technical personnel should have
their training postponed until after
graduation.
The year's compulsory training
would then be given with a view
to training technical personnel for
army use. EDITORIAL PAGE

UBC for Ex-servicemen
UBC seems to be tops on the returned
man's list of favorite universities. Servicemen from the prairies and the east who visit
British Columbia find the climate alone
good enough reason to make UBC their university.
But there are other reasons. Administration authorities have made the welfare of
the returned man one of their first considerations. They have wasted no time in
sweeping away the usual red tape and regulations in order that ex-servicemen can begin
there work for a degree immediately.
UBC was the first Canadian university
to inaugurate special courses for returned
men. This leadership was followed by a good
many other universities.
This university has also permitted the
returned men to organize themselves into
groups designed to facilitate their assimilation into civilian life. Both the student authorities and the administration authorities
have co-operated wth the Canadian University Returned Men's Association.
Some universities have denied the men
the right to organization on the grounds
that it would split the student body into
civilian and servicemen's groups. UBC's example proves that organizations like
CURMA do not wish this any more than
other student organizations.
Government Revision Reports
Future "fathers of the AMS" have been
besieging the Publications Board recently
in hopes that their pet schemes for UBC's
student government will see more than the
light in the eyes of Mr. Wilson and his committee of revision.
The Ubyssey will publish a special analysis of student government soon, but until
that time we have decided to let the committee assimilate the multitude of plans and
systems before we put the concrete proposals
before students.
We understand and appreciate the difficulties before the committee. The job they
have is no easy one. It is a Job that requires
much consideration and study. It has of
necessity taken some time. For two weeks,
the committee has been listening to student
plans three times a week.
We have published news stories of the
committee sessi6ns so that students will have
an idea of just what their committee is
doing. Some of these stories have contained
more of one plan than another, according to
space available in the paper. We do not
think, however, that this will mean much
difference to the general student body.
Students have delegated to the committee the task of examining these plans and
then presenting a report on their deliberations. The committee has finished examining
the plans and is now drawing up its report.
The report will be published in detail as
soon as it is handed to us.
End of the Dirty Nine
The Ubyssey would like to inform all
students that the Student Council of this
university is composed of a lot of dirty bums.
They are perhaps the most inefficient of a
long line of inefficient councils. There's not
a nasty trick in the record which they
wouldn't pull, if it wasn't for the ever-
watchful guardian of student liberty, The
Ubyssey.
Notwithstanding this vigilance, however, a few sly and dirty deals slipped by
our watchful eyes recently while we engaged in the annual Pub Social Evening.  We
took time off for a little relaxation, and of
course the Dirty Nine took advantage of this.
The foul minutes they passed in our
absence cannot be matched by all the adjectives in the repertoire of the Publications
Board. We have had enough.
All students take notice: The Student
Council, better known as the Dirty Nine, in-
e
famous Infidels and the Fish-eyed Fools, will
be slaughtered personally by the Publications Board at high  noon on Thursday,
March 1, in the vicinity of the UBC gym.
We shall call it a basketball game.
people and things
By RON HAGGART
• THE CANADIAN Broadcaster, an eastern trade journal, has announced the
presentation of the first annual "Beaver"
awards for outstanding merit in Canadian
Radio. Citations for excellence in drama,
music, sports, production and other allied
fields of broadcasting have been awarded to
Canadians leaders in these fields.
In. our own simple way, we like to think
that these awards mark the beginning of a
new era of enlightenment among Canadian
editors and that the new learning, starting
with this trade paper, will spread to all the
public press. We would like to believe that
Canada's servants, especially those who
serve us by entertainment, will no longer
be forgotten nonentities until they are either
in their graves or in the United States.
Canadian editors seem to operate on
the axiom that the degree of success for a
native son varies directly as the square of
his distance from home. The very pinnacle
of attainment is to go from the lead in the
Little Theatre of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
to a walk-on in a Hollywood celluloid spectacle.
When a local son attains success in fields
abroad the home-town editor cannot resist
the offers of the flack-factories that mince
out golden words of praise for the city's "gift
to Hollywood." The editor's inside pages
are filled with the new star's personal history, sex life, and views on the Ethiopian
situation.
Press agents, of course, are not in the
business of patting home-towns on the back,
but once the star is accepted, the public will
buy the corn plasters he advertises or pay
admission to the picture in which he appears.
And the easiest recruits for the bandwagon
are people who feel that they have almost
had a part in the star's success. The fact
that our hero left his home-town at the age
of five the press agent, naturally, never
mentions.
The case histories of two young Vancouver people who have recently attained
considerable success in greener fields abroad
are excellent examples of the "square of the
distance" formula.
When a shy, virtually unknown Van
couver radio comic left for the American
networks las^ summer he was almost immediately acclaimed in the United States
as the most promising new star of the season.
In Canada, the trumpets blared. Newspapers and magazines throughout the Dominion
hailed "Vancouver's gift to big-time Radio".
From coast to coast was head the cry "That's
our boy".
But for as many years previous to his
final success as we can remember, the same
young man had been knocking around Vancouver Radio completely unnoticed by press
and public. Speaking in more than a dozen
different dialects, sweating out all his own
material, sparking his delivery with a punch
and zest entirely new, he was known only to
a few in the trade and a handful of the
public.
His press notices while he was in Canada consisted of such voluminous material
as a weekly listing in the newspaper radio
logs.
Now take the case of another Vancouver
unknown, a very beautiful young girl. She
left here for Hollywood some years ago to
be swallowed up and hidden among the
thousands of other very beautiful young
girls that infest the movie capital. But she
was not long to remain unknown. An enterprising press agent ground out some of the
most hackneyed and stereotyped of Hollywood publicity, and even the most conservative of Vancouver newspapers obliged with
"cuts" and stories of the new star. She was
"discovered" by her loyal and faithful fans
back home. A director heaped some dime-
a-dozen adjectives upon her. She lost an
election bet and had to kiss the first 50«ser-
vice men she met. A camera, naturally, just
happened to be ready.
Although the unknown young Vancouver girl has never played a leading role in her
life, she is, to Vancouver at least, a star.
Her first picture will enjoy the appropriate
monetary result.
But perhaps the answer to Canada's
actor's exodus lies in the fact that as far as
Canada is concerned an entertainer is without profit in his own country.
education1!
task
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article is a reprint of en ar- '
tide which appeared in the Vancouver Dally Province recently.
•RT. HON. MALCOLM
MacDONALD emphasized the vital role that education must play in the reconstruction period when thanking the senate of the University of Toronto when he
received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws recently.
The major part of his remarks
follow:
The military part of the task of
saving civilization is making good
progress. After that will come the
more difficult part of tiie work.
It is the civil part—the work not
only of repairing materially the
economic, social and political hav.
oc wrought by years of war, but
of creating that intellectual and
spiritual revolution in men's minds
which will make them capable of
maintaining a secure and constructive peace.
PLAN FOR EVIL
That cannot be accomplished
easily or quickly. You educationists will play a large part In its
solution as will statesmen or others. It is almost impossible to
exaggerate the power—for good
or evil—of education in human
affairs. For example, Hitler's Immense authority in Oermany was
based on education. It was his
persistent Instruction of children
in their cradles, their nurseries,
their schools and their universities which turned an entire generation of Germans into devilish fanatics.
The most appalling question facing us after the war will be how
to counter the terrible damage
done to millions of young people
in Central Europe by the Nazi
education system. I am not going
to enter on that subject today. I
.will only remark this: If bad education can achieve so much that
is evil in so short a time, the opposite is not impossible. Good education could achieve miraculous
benefit* for mankind.
PRIORITY FOR EDUCATION
In wartime we have grown accustomed to allotting priorities for
various weapons which were most
potent for the achievement of mil.
itary victory. The production of
such things as bomber aircraft and
tanks was given the highest preference. Peace should have its priorities too. Amongst the weapons
which we can employ to achieve
sane reconstruction in the world
I would give top priority to education.
I remember, for example, that
the Jesuits are alleged to have said
that If they could Instruct a child
up to the age of 7, they did not
care who tried to influence him
after that. The later schooling of
a youngster can also ba significant.
But for many human beings I believe the crucial period is that of
their adult education. By then a
certain amount of practical experience of life is deepening their
understanding. Their faculties
are developing rapidly. Their a-
wareness and alertness and enthusiasm are ripe. They are most
responsive.
STRANGE FRUIT
Let me illustrate what I mean
by an Individual example. I have
sometimes asked myself what was
the most precious thing that I, a
typical undergraduate, got from
Oxford. Of course I acquired various things at that ancient seat
of learning. I acquired for the first
time an overdraft at my bank. I
also acquired a certain stole patience and endurance when Oxford lost the boat race against
Cambridge year after year. I suppose I got my lah-di-da Oxford
accent there as well.
But there was something else,
more profound. It was like this.
When I arrived at Oxford the university life presented to me, as
I daresay life here does to young
undergraduates, a ringing challenge. I met the crowd of able
and sometimes brilliant young
contemporaries, gathered from many different schools and experiences In life, who are always to be
found at any given time in a good
university. I discovered that be-
tween them they already knew
many important things of which
I was still lamentably Ignorant,
and that they seemed to have mature opinions on them, which incidentally they expressed engagingly.

LIPSTICK DISTRIBUTION DATA
•   ENGINEERING IS not all slide-rule calculations and
figures, as is shown by this article which has been reprinted by several engineering magazines across the country.
When two surfaces, one of which       ———________
is coated with a layer of lipstick,
meet, a certain distribution of the
lipstick takes place. The second
surface, which was originally
clean, retains a portion of the material. This paper is a study of
the variables affecting this distribution and the determination of
the coefficient of distribution.
NOMENCLATURE
P—pressure, N—numbers of ap-
pllcattions, T—temperature of experiment, A'—area of the transmitter, A"—area of the receiver,
i-lntensity of light, K-Newton's
constant, p—pucker factor, II—
passion.
NOTES ON THE VARIABLES
The most important variable in
the distribution if lipstick Is that
of pressure. Harris reports that
ln 193 tests, using variations of
pressure, the amount of material
transferred was a direct function
of the pressure. This report tends
to bear out the experiments of
Nlchtlieber, who used several
transmitters under the same laboratory conditions, i.e., on the
same night. Nlchtlieber conducted
his tests in the Theta Phi Alpha
laboratory In 1943. When the
pressure is zero, the distribution
is also zero; as pressure incream
the flow of lipstick increases rapidly up to a certain maximum.
Under extremely high pressures,
tho equilibrium conditions aio
reached almost immediate y. Equilibrium occurs when the amount
of lipstick on one surface is equal
to that on the other.
It has been found that if pressure Is plotted against distribution, the curve assumes the shape
of a "puckered pair" of lips.
(This is standard nomenclature
for the phenomenon. To say a
"pair of puckered lips" Infers that
one lip can be puckered independently—an impossibility.) The
exact shape of the curve is determined by "p," the pucker factor.
B,  the  variable  measuring the
surface conditions, is an exponential function of the pucker factor
and pressure. Under normal operating conditions, the surface of
the contacting areas is fairly
smooth. However, if the surfaces
are contracted and drawn up into
folds and wrinkles, i.e., puckered,
then surface conditions are far
from being ideal for complete distribution. As pressure increases,
the surface becomes more Ideal,
i.e., smooth.
Other factors are also important in, the distribution raUo. The
intensity of light, "i", has an inverse effect. As light becomes
brighter and brighter, less and
less lipstick is distributed. The
amount dispensed in total darkness approaches Infinity.
An unusual effect of NawtoaVa
gravitational constant is noted in
the following relationship. If
there are only two surfaces within
range, the distribution is normal.
If, however, a third surface la
near, the distribution falls off to
almost nothing. Yet, with th*
addition of a fourth surface of
opposite gender to the third, the
rate of flow is twice as great aa
before.
Slowerker attempted • series of
experiments to determine the
effects of passion, but failed at
first because of transmitter
trouble.. In another attempt th*
defenoe* failed, and accurate results were obtained. The cause
o( II, passion, is as yet unknown,
but it has been shown that any
amount of it renders useless th*
consideration of any other variable. II causes the number of
applications per unit time to increase greatly. The study of this
variable is the most difficult of
all, but Slowerker's work seems
quite adequate.

FEUD WITH FACULTY
SPECIAL TO THE UBYSSEY
By ELIZABETH DONAHUE Staff Correspondent
• WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Feb. 24—The student body of
William and Mary College, following a week's feud with
its President and Board of Trustees threatened today to succumb to heavy political and business pressure and come to
some compromise over the campus issues of racial equality
and freedom of the press.
'LITTLE HAYTCHKAV
The students, and many members
of the faculty were called personally to the home of the college
President, J. E. Pomfret. throughout yesterday and told that if they
continued their stand, important
businessmen and politicians
throughout Virginia were preparing reprisals.
Pomfret is said to have subtly
warned them that vague threats to
both students and professors, and
strikes throughout important war
areas in the Commonwealth, combined with an aroused Virginia citizenry, might spell the end of funds
which tiie State provides for th*
College's support.
Although there was little specific
evidence of labor difficulties, th*
students, sensitive to the Nationwide publicity their cause aroused,
were said to hav* been convinced
that they must "conform".
Nevertheless, it was predicted
that one or two members of the
college faculty may offer their
resignations as a result of the
fracas, and in opposition to th*
stand taken by Pomfret and the
college board.
The flare-up ln th* quiet Southern college aros* over an editorial
appearing ln a recant issue of the
eampus weekly "Flat Hat". Written by Marilyn Ksemmerle, of
Jackson, Mich., the student editor.
The editorial called 'Lincoln's Job,
Half Done'; urged that educators
inform their students on the racial
facts of life—that there is no biological differences between races.
It anticipated the day when lasting
world peace would be founded on
complete social and economic
equality among rsees.
The editorial provoked the 11
members of the College Board of
Visitors—trustees—to demand disciplinary action. Pomfret suspended the publication and Issued an
ultimatum to the students demanding that the faculty supervise future editorials. He also demanded
the resignation of Miss Kaeramerle
as editor of the paper.
Today's events followed a three-
hour faculty meeting at which the
majority of the professors backed
the college President after he made
it perfectly clear that he would not
continue as head of the college If
they turned him down. Some of
the faculty—led by the dean of the
Law School, Dudley Woodbridge,
dissented with a strong resolution
upholding the views of the students.
When news of the meeting leaked out, 190 boy students gathered
at midnight to decide whether or
not to boycott a morning assembly
called by the president. Pomfret
scheduled the meeting to announce
that the faculty was backing him
and the Board of Visitors and to
ask the students to do the same.
While the boys discussed the issue into the early hours yesterday,
three carloads of students from
nearby Virginia schools invaded
the campus armed with beer bottles and attempted to provoke a
fight. The William and Mary students turned them over to the
Williamsburg police.
The same evening members of
the William and Mary College basketball team visiting the Hampden-
Sideney School arrived on the
court and were greeted with cries
of "nigger-lovers." William and
Mary lost, 54 to 38.
At its midnight conference, the
body of male students finally decided to urge attendance at the
assembly called by Pomfret. The
college was on hand, 1000 strong.
The college president, a jovial
Princeton man who dislikes fights,
tried to win the sympathy of the
students. "An old Negro," he said,
"came to my office and told me
that we have ruined everything he
has spent his life working for."
"It is my judgment," Pomfret
continued, "that supervision be established over student publications,
and the Board of Visitors and the
faculty have concurred in the
view."
He said that if the college "does
not enjoy the good will and respect
cf citizens of Virginia its usefulness soon will come to an end."
Pomfret's formal announcement
was greeted in silence. He then
launched Into an Informal talk
which also failed to stir his pupils.
Ridiculing the students' request
that the Board of Visitors come to
the college and discuss the issue in
a forum, Pomfret said:
"It is fantastic to expect Important men to line up and be heckled
by students. These men Include a
couple of judges, a doctor and a
colonel."
Pomfret's statement later was
upheld by J. Oordon Bohannan,
head of the board, who told PM
"it is improbable that we would
Indulge in a forensic debet* with
th* students."
In the hushed student assembly,
at which the president obviously
expected to have his ssy and win
a vote of approval from the college,
th* students just sat quietly when
Pomfret concluded "the meeting ia
adjourned."      N
But they held their seats and
BIU Williams, president of the student government body, took th*
platform as Pomfret sat down un-
applsuded.
Williams read the resolution representing the views of some ot the
faculty members who support both
a censorship-free campus publication and the reinstatement of th*
paper's editor, It was four page*
long and strongly implied that th*
restriction of student opinion might
bo extended to the faculty unless
the censorship move was stopped
now.
Then Williams asked for a vote
on the issue of supervision by th*
faculty versus permanent suspension of the 'Fist Hat.'
The vote was taken shortly after
Russ Powers, a girl with fluffy
blonde ha'r, whose father owns
coal mines throughout the South,
reminded the students that if they
voted to support Pomfret they
were violating their own constitution.
The vote went overwhelmingly
against Pomfret. The meeting
broke up quietly and the boys and
girls wandered toward their classrooms. Pomfret, flushed and embarrassed, would 'make no comment.
Elaine Lewis, member of the
'Flat Hat' staff, put it this way:
"The Byrd political machine of
Virginia says thumbs down to the
State Assembly. The state assembly says thumbs down to the Board
of Visitors. Teh Board of Visitors
says thumbs down to President
Pomfret. He says thumbs down,
too, but the student body says
thumbs up."
LETTER TO
THE EDITOR
Editor-in-chief.The  Ubyssey,

Dear Sh*:
Last night In hearing Mr. Bron-
islaw Huberman play the violin at
the Lyric I felt a poem coming on.
So in the sanctum of my lonely
garret my muse laboured and
thus she was delivered.
If you like it, by all means print
it. If you don't like it, roll a
cigarette with it. And if you choke
ou the fag, poetic justice will have
been enacted.
Sincerely thine,

A VIOLIN PLAYED
(Dedicated to B. H.)
A violin played ln the evening—
.Bearing singing silence and singing sound
Across the dust, above the idols,
To dreaming that there is a soul
And man may yet possess it—
This thy gift
Like smoke—lights on the living
strings,
A bow, thy bow;
And all the longing of the passing
years,
The grief that ever finds its birth
anew,
The death In life, the joy, the tears
Are thine, transmuted ours.
For   such,   no   recompense   but
words,
No recompense but words.
-J. M.,

Sound Proofing
For AMS Office?
• (LAST summer plans were
drawn up for changes in the
AMS office. It was suggested that
sound proofing be installed because people trying to work could
accomplish much more if noises
from the main lounge and halls
were excluded.
It was also suggested that the
cash cage be moved up near the
vault and have the other end of
the office open to students. As
lt is now students are not supposed
to be admitted behind the front
desk.
However, it was not considered
to be worth the money to make
this change. The new council will

AS TIME GOES BY
• IT DOESNT seem to very long ago that Vancouver basketball officials were organizing the schedule for the
1944-45 season, but the slate was cleaned two weeks ago,
and tonight finds the top two teams in the league, Varsity
Thunderbirds and Lauries Pie-Rates, clashing in the first
battle of the Senior A hoop finals.
The best-of-five games series will decide the City Champion, and to all extents, the Provincial Champion since the
only outside competitors for the British Columbia crown are
<the Pat Bay Gremlins and they are inelligible for championship competition because of a government order issued last
year.
Want Pie-Rat©. To Win
Of course, the Thunderbirds, who finished on top of the
heap with a comfortable eight-point margin, are favored to
take the Pirate quintet, but Lauries will be out for revenge
after the narrow decisions they dropped to Varsity during
league play.
League officials, and city hoop fans still cling to a spark
of hope for a Pie-Rate victory so that Vancouver may once
again house the Dominion basketball finals.
Unfortunately, the Thunderbirds made an early decision
to disband on conclusion of the city playoffs because of their
university studies. It was a wise move on their part, but a
disappointing one to Vancouver's basketball enthusiasts.
The 'Birds Can't Go On
Varsity hoopers have already captured one cup, and
they still have their eyes on two others. Mrs. W. L. Pedlow,
mother of the late Doug Pedlow, who starred with the Thunderbirds when they won the Canadian Championship in 1941,
presented the Memorial Cup to Gordy Lade, captain of the
Thunderbugs, Tuesday night after the Varsity squad defeated Vancouver College for the title.
Mrs. Pedlow said that she was sorry when she heard
that the Senior A Thunderbirds would not compete for the
Dominion crown this year, but she explained that she was
not surprised because she remembers that not one of the
1941 "Wonder Team" passed in the April Exams.
Yes, it's too bad that the Thunderbirds cannot go on
to the championships this year, but greater disappointments
than this must be endured in these days of strife.
But all those boys like Doug who have died overseas
have not died in vain, and the time will come when, not just
the Canadian basketball finals, but all athletic playoffs will
again be the glorious goal of Canadian athletes.
New York Rangers
Defeat Chihawks;
Threaten Boston
• NEW YORK Rangers moved to
within two points of the fourth
place Boston Bruins, Thursday
night, when they nosed out the
Detroit Red Wings, 5-3. Chicago
Black Hawks also kept their playoff spot hopes alive by trouncing
the Bruins 5-0 on Wednesday
night. The lowly Chihawks are
now six points behind the Boston
team.
Paced by Jackie Mann, the
Rangers banged home four big
goals in the first period. Mann
scored the first Ranger goal and
assisted Walt Atanas and Ouy
Labrie on two others.
After a scoreless second period the Red Wings came back
In full force at the beginning
of the final canto. Detroit
brought the score up to the 4-3
count before Ab Demarco tallied to cinch the Ranger victory.
Chicago's victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night
gave Mike Karakas his second consecutive shutout and his third of
the season. In their previous game
the Chicago crew battled to a 0-0
draw with the league • leading
Montreal Canadiens.
BEAVERS SEEK
TWO VICTORIES
THIS WEEKEND
• CORVALLIS, Ore. - (BUP)-
Oregon State Beavers need two
victories to regain their first place
tie with the University of Oregon
in the Northern Division Basketball race—and they think they'll
get 'em this weekend.
The Beavers meet the Idaho Vandals twice here at Corvollis, and
hope to duplicate Oregon's feat in
taking both contests from the tail-
end visitors.
Still very much in the title race
are the Washington State Cougars
from Pullman. They meet Washington at Seattle in a pair of games
this weekend.
Windsor Hoopsters
Beat Top U.S. Team
• THE PRESTIGE of Canadian
basketballers   soared   to   new
heights in Buffalo Thursday night
when the Assumption College of
Windsor trimmed Canisius College by a score of 59-43. The Canisius outfit is rated as one of the
top college teams in the United
States. Previous to this game, the
Canisius team suffered only ono
major setback, and that was to
the famous Long Island University squad which trimmed them
by 15 points.
• VARSITY'S Thunderbirds will
be back in action tonight when
they meet Lauries Pie-Rates ln the
first game of the Senior A finals to
decide the City Champions.
Lauries have just finished disposing of the UBC Chiefs although
none too thoroughly. They took
the third game of the best of three
series Wednesday night when they
downed the luckless Chiefs by one
slim point. The 'Birds were awarded their bye Into the finals when
the Higbie Inter A squad dropped
out of the competition after dropping the first game to the "Birds.
The Pirates came close to the
'Birds in several league tilts and
even managed to defeat them by
one point in one tilt. However, the

Wisconsin Has
Ray Patterson
For Thin Man'
• MADISON,  Wlsconiln-(BUP)
The University  of Wisconsin
basketball team boasts a "Thin
Man" named Raymond Patterson.
Patterson stands six-feet-two and
his three years of Varsity play
show him to be one of the cutset
shotmakers on the Badger cage
team.
Last year the "Thin Man" from
California tossed in 193 points to
rank second In scoring among Big
10 Conference players. Dame Dan-
ner of Iowa took top honors among
the mesh hitters. Old Man Flu
kept Patterson out of three tilts
this season but in the seven games
ln which he has played he's totalled 89 points and in the hotly-contested Big 10 loop that's good
shooting.
Patterson went to the Badger
State to attend Wayland Academy and he liked it so well that
he stayed over to attend college. At prep school the good-
natured Callfornlan was a four
letter man—taking part In
track, tennis, basketball and
and baseball.
A hard-working member of the
cage squad, he's very popular with
his fellow players. They call him
"Platter" because he can pick 'em
up and lay 'em down on the hardwood. Platter is a good all-round
basketball performer. He's quite
famous for his "ball hawking and
steals" in the Big 10 Loop.
He's deadly on backboard rebounds and quite often pushes the
ball through the mesh while still
in the air. He's quite a guy this
Ray "Platter" Patterson of the
Wisconsin basketball team — they
like him on the court and off.
When a fellow breaks a date he
usually has to.
When a girl breaks a date she
usually has two.

"I see you dated a Science student last night."
"No, I tore my dress on a nail."
—Queen's Journal
• UBC CHIEFS finally managed to break the jinx that
has been hovering over them during their blackest week
of the season when they outplayed Ted Milton's Higbies,
coming up with a 53-49 win Thursday night at the King Ed
gym. It was the third game in as many nights for the Students who put on a fast organized exhibition of passing and
playmaking to tie the Cup Series at two games apiece.
On Wednesday night, the Blue
and Gold boys went out to try to
take the Anal game of the Senior
A semis from Lauries and only
lost by 'one point. The Students
played a great game then too, Anally managing 'to get moving on
the King Ed floor. Lauries, who
got quite a scare out of the night*s
work also won the right to meet
the Thunderbirds in the City finals.
The Chief* were tired but determined when they went on
to the floor Thursday night. It
was a case of do or die and s*
right from the opening whistle
they decided to do rather than
give In to the Higbie outfit.
Starting off strong, the Chiefs
built up a healthy lead, starting th* second canto with a
five-point margin.
The   machine  rolled   right  est
through to build up a 30-22 lead at
the breather.    The third quarter
was the big one however, when
the Chiefs really went to town,
building up a 17-polnt lead at one
point in the quarter.
Tragedy nearly befell the Students when their starry pivot mux,
Herb Capoctsi, had to leave the
floor via the foul route. Harb
played a great game before h*
was taken out, scoring 18 points toward the cause.
Herb was even deadly from the
foul strip scoring seven of his eight
free shots the easy way.
In the last guarter, the Higbiemen came to life In a determined way to work out 14
points while the Chiefs were
held to Ave. Bob Haas was th*
second casualty of the game
when he also drew his fifth
feul of the tilt. Without Bob
and Herb, the boys couldn't get
their plays clicking.
Gerry Stevenson played a torrjd
game swishing 12 points through
the hemp while checking hard and
fast. Gerry is said to be one of
the fastest players in the Inter < A
bracket.
Wednesday's tilt was a thriller
all the way with the Chiefs fighting back to knot the game in
the final minutes. They trailed by
four points going into the Anal
canto but came back strong to tie
the tilt up. The Pirates were just
a little too experienced for the
youngsters who couldn't quite
muster enough go to win after
their hard game the night before.
UBC CHIEFS — Stevenson 12,
Fenn, Swanson, Haas 7, Blake,

the cinching of the Tisdall Cup
for the Blue and Gold.
The  Varsity  dub   will  be
without their star wing forward Joe Pegues for the crucial
contest,  which  will  probably
give the  University its third
trophy  of the year.   Pegues,
who is one of the outstanding
wing forwards In British Columbia, sprained his ankle In
the McKechnie Cup game a-
gainst Victoria Crimson Tide a
week ago, and he will prfob-
ably be on the sidelines for the
next two weeks.
The  scoring  championship  will
most likely be decided this afternoon with Tom McCusker and Jim
Hughes struggling for the honors.
Hughes is currently the leader with
a total of sixteen points while McCusker is right behind with fifteen.
Tom, playing at wing three, has
by far the better chance than Jim,
who plays fullback.
