Multiple Voting
In AMS Interest
Formal charges laid against
a Ubyssey reporter for multiple breaches in election rules
were dismissed by Student
Council Monday night when
they declared his actions were
"in the best interests of the
Alma Mater Society,"

and the Editorial Board of the
Publications Board were charged
by Dave Hummel with numerous
infractions of the AMS code for
their actions February 14 when
Upex proved the possibility of voting six times.
Council decided that Upex and
the Editorial Board were merely
pointing out a defect lu the system
of balloting and so wore acting In
thet best interests of the Amla

UBC students . should encourage the
AMS elections committee to devise a new,
safe scheme whereby Student Concil candidates may be elected fairly and honestly.
Witl) & meeting of the committee set for
next Mbnday, its members will be faced'with
the specific problem of preventing stuffing of
bnllot bxes in future elections.
As was illustrated by a Ubyssey reporter
last week, Ballot-box stuffing, under our
existing system, is sis easy fbr a dishonest
voter as voting is fer an honest one.
ThU elections committee, however,
should not allow itself to be mystified by the
whole problem. The provincial and federal
polling systems suggest a simple solution,
provided they are modified to suit our particular needs.
The Ubyssey believes our voting system
can best be made foolproof against dishonesty
by dividing the campus into hard and fast
polling divisions, such as those which now
ejcist federally Within the electoral district
of each candidate for Ottawa.
This arrangement would mean that stu*
dent Joe Doakes is entitled to vote at a p6l-
ling booth, say in tiie Arts building, but
nowhere else. At Doakes' polling station is
a list containing his name, along with the
names of those others allocated to the division. When Joe votes, he sighs the sheet in
a space opposite his name, and his printed
name, supplied through the- Registrar's hats,
is crossed off.
» Thus Joe finds he has ony one vote, at
that station or anywhere else. Consequently,
he is unable to succumb to |he temptation of
trying to vote at several booths. That arrangement would be a major step toward a completely foolproof system.
A later editorial in this space will outline another scheme to be used in conjunction
with this system, m order to render elections
entirely foolproof.

Dear Hearts and Gentle Students
It is with heartfelt grief and a
touch of dlsfeust that I received
the news Tuesday afternoon of
my disqualification in the WAA
Never haa a more sincere campaign been conducted on the campus. Never hae a greater effort
been made to put more Woo ln
WAA. The corruption and ineffi-
ciency of the Elections Committee
headed by Miss Jo Strutt scuttled
ua. The mere distribution of subversive literature, the beautifies-
tion of notice boards with my
"built for the Job" posters and the
enhancement of the ladles' powder
roofa houses with my "seelng-eye"
cards are poor grounds for disqualification.
This smacks of Yankee domination, corrupt politicking and an
unwillingness to allow ballot box
stuffing. My committee shares the
student body's disappointment at
my disqualification.
It would seem musical toilets,
perfumed foot wash and the formation of W4UA3SOfi, the new
WAA executive, must wait for yet
another year.
Courage. All Is nof lost.

Critic On The Hearth
By Jdftn Brockington
In a recent article I expressed my dis-
tUrbed sentiments on the present situation of
the Vancouver Orchestra.
Criticism of conditions as they exist will
not suffice. A symphony orchestra is too
important, too influential and too far reaching a power t6 cdritinue oh such shaky
ground. Much harm can come from the present regime. In order to remedy the prevalent superstition that musicians are not
practical people and to suggest to the thinking student that such a situation can be alleviated the Ubyssey has decided to present
a series of discussions on this vital problem.
This series of articles has a twofold purpose: to discuss the ideal orchestra for this
community based on the function of any true
orchestra and on Vancouver's needs, and to
offer what may be practical suggestions as
to how this dream may be achieved.
A symphony orchestra is the focal point
in any community's musical life. Its function
is to entertain and to educate.
When I say "to entertain" I do not mean
"to amuse" but to enrich through pleasure.
The world today is crammed with "entertainments" to divert the frivolous mind. As a serious art music does not purport to accomplish
tills. Music is designed to give expression to
ideas and emotions incapable of finding their
outlet in any other form. A composer does not
create to while away the time, but to present
through sound personal responses to his environment, therefore his work is the sum total
of experience and skill at any one point in
his development. He speaks to u.s through
sound in order to share with us experiences
that to him have had great meaning, hoping
that vve will come away from his offering enriched by the hearing of it. In this sense do I
use the verb "to entertain."
If oUr lives havo been made more meaningful in this way, then we have been also
"educated" in the truest sense. Education, to
quote Sir Richard Livingstone, is merely
"the development of good taste." When we
have heard a work that is sincere in in ils
purpose and skilfull in its craftsmanship we
have have he.-ird the ond product of someone
else's good taste. To achieve similar powers
of judgement we have only to Hsten to nothing but the best and sooner or later, if we
are not basically mongoloid, we will be able
to discern the mediocre affecting worth in
the midst of the good.
This then, must be the object df a true
symphony orchestra; to present nothing but'
the best music. That is to say not oftly is the
music of Bach, Brahms, Beethoven and
Tchaikovsky to be considered but Also the
best that is being written in Our own century.
Music has been a constantly developing art
and has never been caught short for men
of genius. No era has been without its great
musicians and our is no exception. Because
we appreciate the glories of Shakespeare does
not mean that we are immune to Shaw and
O'Neill. Yet a quick glance over symphonic
programs heard in Vancouver during the last
ten years would indicate that our bifocals
are capable of seeing back into the nineteenth
and eighteenth centuries, but useless for
seeing clearly in our owri world. Some people,
in their wisdom, have drawn an Iron Curtain over the year 1900' and placed us behind
it. Is there any reason why, because we live
in this city, we should never have the chance
to listen to what Bartok, Hindemith and Berg
have to say in sound?' Why should we be
branded as provincial nincompoops without a
fair trial?
Should anyone doubt the power of our^
best Twentieth Century composers to stir
a Vancouver audience, let him ask for reactions from anyone who was present last January when the Juilliard Quartet introduced
works of Bartok arid Berg to this city. The
effect was electrifying. Not only ate these
composers great beside their predecessors,
but their music has a special immediacy and
vitality for us living in the twentieth century,
close to and understanding the reality of
these men. This is our music. It expresses our
age. Yet how seldom are we permitted anything but the burning of incense to dead
Article two will discuss the ideal conductor, his necessary qualifications, and the
means by which such a man may be secured.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear air:
At one end of the city we have
the eaet-end zoot suiters—at the
other end, we have the fools from
UfiC. BOth factions being in the
news regularly for plain damn
If the UBC students are so anxious to make the headlines, why
don't they do something startling
—like volunteering en masse as
blood donors for the Red Cross—
or enlisting In the forces?
It leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth that so much money
Is being poured into an "Idiot
factory", (Tho' probably, most of
them weren't too bright when they
started.) But. please, can't wife have
a little less publicity—after all,
they only put on these performances In hopes they'll see lt in
the papers.
Yon can spot a UBC student
anywhere downtown—jthe girls adopt a blase attitude (keeping a
weather eye on the onlookers to
see whether she's creating a
"June Allyson in disguise" act) and
the   boys,   with   the   "old   school
golij! band on ■top. Phone KE 116911.

Conference basketball clubs
Friday and Saturday nights.

basketball seen this season.
Coasting the longest Conference winning streak ln the
northwest, the pace-setting
Savages will be out to post
their 28th consecutive Evergreen victory Friday.
Dick Elcher plays the top
role In the success of Eastern's
torrid court machine this year.
Eicher has been the main scor;
ing cog in'a machine that has
averaged 68 points a game.
Coach "Red'' Reese will
round out the starting quintet
with Bill Hallet and Dean Rof-
tier holding office as guards.
