Charge Of Anti-Semitism Against
Greek Societies At UBC Denied
Rabbi David C. Kogen's statement that fraternities were
"ridden with anti-semitism and social cannibalism" has created
a tempest in a teapot according to campus fraternity men.
Anti-semitism   has   never   been   an •  -- _......
issue in UBC fraternities,  they  said.
"Anyway, a Jewish fraternity was
established here about the same time
as other fraternities and Jewish students have always tended to associate with their own fraternity so thc
problem has never arisen*" spokesmen  pointed  out.
"The relationship between Jewish
and other fraternities has always
been  most   friendly,"' they  added.

In   his  address   the   rabbi   look   tin

'Gentlemen's Agreement' in which the
manifestations   of   anti-semitism   are

He attacked the "unfraternal" attitude of fraternities and stated that
'Jews cm Id assimilate in two or three
generations if they were allowed to
mix with the other racial groups
with   equality."
As in "Gentlemen's Agreement"
Rabbi Kogen experimented with trying lo secure housing accommodation on the basis of being a Jew and
a non-Jew. He reported a coolnts,
and indifference wl'/.i the fact that
he wa.s a Jew wa.s mentioned.
In mentioning Hilliel House on the
campus he claimed the house was
built because downtown accommodation was difficult to procure for a
Jewish  university  group.
Schools and colleges with race
quotas and scholastic restrictions
were condemned by the rabbi. Thi.s
practice, he said, was "more prevalent" in the East. McGill. he said,
had higher entrance qualifications
for Jews.
In Eastern Canada there are ''Gentiles Only" signs posted in public
places. One Eastern city had even
debated the question of allowing a
Jewish cemetery in Ihe city, according to Ihe rabbi.
Racial Intolerance Won't
Work Out Claims Robinson
"Racial discrimination does not work itself out," Rev. James
H. Robinson told The Ubyssey today. The way to solve it is to
plan intelligently a strategy with the parties concerned without
aggravating already existing antagonisms.
Rev.   Robinson   who   is   to   conduct
who is
SCM missions al Edmonton, Saskatoon and Brandon continued by saying that .students usually have less
loiu-ivtely formed prejudices that
they are unwilling to break. If
there are any flagrant abuses of prejudice within the democratic framework they must be solved by the
democratic method. Mr. Robinson
who is at present conducting Religion
and Life Week on the campus stated
that be felt freer in his trip across
Canada and that he had no occasion
lo feel discriminated against. Mr.
Dave Brousson of the AMS in introducing Mr. Robinson at his first
address in the auditorium at 12:30
on Monday, stated that it was provocative that Mr. Robinson should
begin Religion and Lite Week when
the downtown papers were accusing
UBC of racial discrimination.
In his address Mr. Robinson emphasized that he is concerned with
a rational basis for religious beliefs
in spite of the fact that the Christian negro usually expresses his religion emotionally. Rather than a
university Mr. Robinson said that
specialization has made it possible
to call it a Plui'ivesity. We must examine all subject matter objectively
and in so doing we have neglected
to realize the facts, methods and j by

The skill and fluency of the Alberta team made a considerable impression, and contributed to then-
victory materially.
Victory of the UBC team at Saskatoon, however, compensated for
the defeat at the hands of the Al-
bertans. Don Lan.'kail and Hugh
Legg travelled to the praire cen're
Friday night to achievA a 2-1 decision over the University of Saskatchewan debaters.
Legg was added to the UBC team
at the last moment to replace Ron
Grant, originally slated to accompany
Lanskail to Saskatoon. Grant was injured while playing rugby recently.
As a result the UEC team had to
make some hurried revisions while
en route to Saskatoon by train. ''Wo
only got our plan oi action ready
half an hour before the debate began," stated Lanskail on his return to
Vancouver yesterday.
In the debate, which concerned the
same topic as that discussed here.
Lanskail and Legg, both of whom
are Law students, took thc negative.
Contestants for the University of
Saskatchewan were Ted Hughes,
president of the Progressive-Comer-

Art Wood, Agriculture student and

Strange Disease Kills
Toronto Radiologist
TOROXTO. Jan. 21! 'OUPi -A notable career in the field of cancer
diagnosis and treatment ended hist
Thursday with the death of Gordon
I. Richards. Professor of Radiology
at the University of Toronto and Director of the Radiology Department
at  the Toronto General  Hospital,
His death i.s attributed to the elicits of radium and X-ray radiations
i nc.iuntcred   in  his  cancer  research.
Dr. Richards was stricken more
than a year ugo with a blood disease
lound in persons exposed to radioactive  rays.
Thc changes in his blood were
lound to be thc same us those found
in the Japanese who were exposed
le the radio-active waves after the
atomic bombing of Hiroshima arid
Nagasaki   in   August  1945.
The death of Dr. Richards deprived
the university and the medical practice of the foremost racTologist in
tin country. He was the first radiologist   in   the   Toronto   General   HosJ
pital and instituted in 1924 the fir.-.t
course in radiology in the University
ol Toronto.
As head of Ihe Radiology Department of thc University of Toronto.
Dr. Richards gave radiology lectures
to final year students in the medical
faculty  and  graduate students.
Dr. P. G. Ash more, ex-president of
the Students' Administrative Council,
said, ''His lectures were excellent,
especially in the post-grad course. Dr.
Richards was very well liked and
respected by all the staff of the Toronto   General   Hospi/1."
Possibility of physicists and research workers at UBC contacting
thc disease which caused Dr. Richards death is discounted by members
of  the  Physics  Depaitment.
Dr.   George   M.   Volkoff,   professor
of   physics,    says   "We   haven't    any
radio-active    stuff    to    play    around
with  here,  At   least,  not   in   amounts
| sufficient  to  be dangerous."
Legion Dance

In Season
Contra wise to expert opinion th"'
Robins are back.
Ornithologists swear that red-
breasted little birds we see around
are not Robins but some other variety ol  the same family.
Much the same as the Station Master we are most prone to believe that,
"Pigs am Pigs" and in this case that
Robins are Robins. '
Amateur orinthologists on the campus are concerned about their feathered friends during the cold weather.
A ''student who wishes to remain
anonymous" phoned The Daily Ubyssey at press time last night to ask
that the plight of the shivering birds
be publicized.
Numerous robins and other similar
smaller birds are dying on the campus, he said, because they could get
no food from the frozen and snow-
covered  ground.
He suggested students might scatter
a few crumbs from their lunches to
keep the birds going till the hoped
for spring arrives.
Farmers Will Frolic
In February Fracas
Plans for the annual Farmers' Frolic are brewing. Down
in the Aggie barns intrigue runs rampant as the farmers plan
for a three-day bust' to precede the frolic, which will take place
February 10 in the Armouries.
February   8   will   spark   the   event $ ■
with   a   monster   Pep   meet   featuring
Joe Rube and his band. The notorious Aggie creamette with jokes in
the  hayseed  manner.
February 9 will see the Varsity
pipe band lead the Aggies over in
Iront of the Library where a new
lountain will be dedicated to Professor Frank E. Buck who landscaped
the   University   campus.
February 10 the farmers will really
go to tovvn with a mechanized parade featuring most of the equipment
the department owns. '
Thi.s parade will bc livened bv
the presence of a couple of airborne
farmers who will enliven pi oceedin.s?^
by buzzing the campus in an aeroplane,    i not    Aggie   equipment i.
Aggie students will look more disreputable than usual that day and
will be out in clothes definitely not
deigned for Sunday'- best. To fur|
ther illustrate their penury and lo
raise more- funds for the fountain
they are going to soil round, red,
Delicious  apples.
Pitying those who arc not "tillers
of the soil'' the Aggies hope to smother laculties out at the Frolic to
;ec how they do it down on the farm.

Thunderettes Win Game
But  Lose Championship
Girl Cagers Split Series
During Edmonton Tournament
All hopes of UBC's Thunderettes cagers capturing the
Western Canada Intercollegiate Girls Basketball crown disappeared before the eyes of the downhearted femmes as they
watched University of Saskatchewan Huskiettes Saturday win
their second game of the round-robin series to take the championship. '

Because Thunderettes had been
edged.out in their first encounter in
round-robin play Friday by the ever-
winning Huskiettes 41-39 in a hard
fought' contest with the winner in
doubt until the final whistle, tlie
Huskiettc five would have had to lose
one game, the Alberta game, for
UBC's cagers to stay in the play.
All three teams would have been
tied with one game apiece and a
second round would have 'been
But the tired Pandas, forced to
play, two games in one day, proved
no match for the winners allowing
the Saskatchewan femmes to run off
with the prize for the ninth time
in the last ten tries.
'■■ Thunderettes played their best of
■tilie series in Saturday's contest when
they managed to keep just enough
ahead of the Panda five to take the
game, by the small margin of 42-37.
Mearnie Summers, playing a full

took the scoring honors, sinking 17
counters for the winners to keep

Gunn Takes   B   Class
Of City Championships
Although they were skiing as individuals rather than as a
team this time UBC skiers once again grabbed off a hunk of
limelight this  week-end  during  the  City  Championships  on
Hollyburn Ridge.
Topping the list was talented fresh
man Dave Gunn, 'who just entered
the event for the experience," and
came out with a first place in the
Class B combined jumping and crosscountry events.
Although only competing in the B
class, Gunn took top A man Jack
Pratt by 54 seconds in the grueling
five mile cross-country race to carry
off number one honors.
Then in the jumping he picked up
