The vote was a severe setback to
plans of the International Student
Service and UBC students Cliff Greer
and Greg Belkov who sponsored the
university's one dollar European
scholarship plan approved by students
al a fall general meeting.
Effect of the ballot was to cancel
the scholarship fund which UBC was
first  to  establish  in  Canada.
The $4 increase was proposed by
Treasurer Paul Plant in order to
subsidize numerous campus events
and reduce admission charges at
dances and  class banquets.
Activities next year will be crimped
to a much greater extent than this
year's so-called "austerity" program,
Treasurer-elect Walt Ewing said after the results were announsed.
The result was a personal victory
for student George Kelly who succeeded in having the proposed fee
insrease submitted to a referendum
after it was first proposed by Plant,
at a special AMS meeting late last
month.   ,
Kelly contended that "student activities should not be heavily subsidized merely to make it easier for
thc treasurer to plan a financial program."
Kelly, a veteran who first began
his movement among a group of
students at Fort Camp declared:
"There is a large group of students
who find it very difficult to finance
a university education. Every dime,
nickel and four dollars is of great
importance to them. An increase in
fees would work an unnecessary
Plant estimated after the ballots
bad been counted, and the rejection
of Ids proposal announced, that all
social events would be more expensive
next  year.
The Engineeis Banquet, hc said,
will probably cost $2 instead of the
50   cents   charged   this   year.
"There will be almost no subsidization of social affairs," he said.
"Students will realize next year,"
Plrnt declared, "that they would have
been better off with the $4 increase."
Alma Mater Society officials expect
a drop of approximately 500 in registration, meaning a loss of 55000 in
AMS revenue from this year, but at
the same time will have to find
around $3000 in salary for the new
business manager demanded by students in a referendum earlier this

Students <vho defeated the proposed fee
increase yesterday dealt Treasurer Paul Plant
a polite kick in the stomach.
Plant, who wrestled valiantly this year
with dwindling student funds, pointed out
several consequences of the defeat which
students, in their infatuation with dollar
bills, chose to ignore.
Student enrolment will be clown probably
by 500 next year with a consequent drop of
$5000 in AMS income.
Three thousand dollars will have to be paid
to the new business manager.
Twelve thousand dollars—directly out of
student fees—will have to go towards the
War Memorial Gym debt.
This year with no business manager to pay,
no funds going directly from student fees to
the gym debt, and student enrollment high,
UBC had a taste of austerity.
Next year the pinch of austerity will be
felt,where it hurts.
Probably many social events will be cut

Editor, Daily Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
First a great big bunch of roses
for some of the finest Ubysseys that
have hit the campus in several
years. The last two month's issues
have been some of the best I have
seen since I came to the campus two
years ago.

•I don't believe it is your policy
to release the names of your editorial writers, so for the moment
we will leave this little bushy haired
fellow out of this letter.
Several editorials in addition to a
weekly group of words called an
intellectual column have been tho
profound work of a person who
who feels ho knows all about tho
world but as yet knows nothing
of it. It is amazing how any one

Auntie  Read
Editor, Daily Ubyssey, Dear Sir:
At the last meeting of the UN
Society a statement was made that
is untrue but which appears to
have widespread acceptance; namely that the American press is free
and, more important, that its statements cannot in any way be taken
aaa the official foreign policy of
the USA.
While it is true that the American Government does not control
the press and while it is obviously
true that the press does not control the Government yet it could
he true that a third force controls,
to a large degree, the policies of
Most of tho newspapers in America are controlled by the business
interests of that country, I would
refer the reader to John Ise and
his text which is used in Economics
200. On page 547 is considerable
evidence including these words
"the Harkness and Harriman families are financially interested in
Time Inc., and the Harrimans are
also stockholders with Astor and
John Whitney (Standard Oil) in
News-Week; the du Ponts own
several newspapers in Delaware."
For further evidence I would rec
ommend "Lords of the Press"
George Seldes.
With   regard   to   the   American
Government  let  us  take a quick
look   at  various   government   departments.   Secretary   of   Defence
Forrestal was originally with New
Jersey Zinc, Tobacco Products Corporation and Dillon, Read and Co.
(Wall Street Investors). Then there
is   Souers   (now   an   Admiral  although he commanded a ship)  a
former insurance man and banker
and who now commands the National Security Council. Thomas J.
Hargravc,   president   of   Eastman
Kodak, who now heads the Munitions   Board,   Arthur   Hill,   Greyhound Director formerly in charge
of    National    Security    Resources
Board. Then there are Harrimans
as represented by William, former
industrialist    and   banker.    Lewis
Douglas  of  Mutual  Life.  General
Saltzman of New York Telephone.
What does all this prove? Nothing
except that government, press and
business are all mixed up to considerable degree. In fact one could
say  interlocked  to  a  considerable
A prize example of this interlocking took place last spring when
the State Department wanted the
Congress and the people to accept
the Marshall Plan. The State Department "spent millions of dollars
in propaganda to dupe congress
into approval of the Marshall Plan
and now those sections of the press
which aided in that propaganda
campaign are to be paid off." (Reported, in the News-Herald June
3\ 1948.) The entire foreign circulation of the New York Times,
Life, Time, News-Week and the
Reader's Digest were underwritten
by the State Department when
those public?tions agreed to support the Plan. The Saturday Eve-

"Spring   has   sprung
The grass is riz
I   wonder  where
The  students  is"  .   .  .  quoth
a clueless professor.
Yes,   everyone's   doing   it.    Doing
what?   you   say.    Why   communing
with   nature,  cf  course.    SPRING   is
here—but definitely.
The   birds   are   singing,   thc   croci
are blooming, the Library is empty,
the lawn is full. In fact you can even
see what the Caf tables  look  like
now. And that is a sure sign spring
is here.
Spring does amazing things to
(people. All the glum saddened
wintry expressions have been replaced by happy smiles accompanied
by   winks  and   what-not.
Oh   that   good   old   spring  fever.
Young Man's Fancy
Get it now while the stock lasts.
Don't wait till it's all exam tarnished.
It's amazing how a young man's
fancy turns to the finer things of
life — such as pretty girls — as
soon as the sun comes out and thc
birds start'singing. Of course there
are still a few party-poppers who
haven't got over the cold weather
yet and are still clinging to somebody else's cosy carral in the sticks.
However these eager types are
greatly outnumbered by thc zany
Professor's hints to their sadly
dwindled classes to the effect that
final exams are just a month away
are to of no avail. Couples find a
walk to the Point much more enthralling than History or English
lecture these days.
Pins And Flowers
And don't let the couples out on
the lawns fool you with their great
pile of books staeked impressively
in front of them. They're not learning Physics by looking soulfully
into each other's eyes, no matter
what they say.
And with all this spring fever
stuff and young man's fancy and
all that sort of thing fraternity pins
are going out by the bushel. I hear
tell the Phi Kaps have just ordered
another few dozen from the east.
The Kappa Sigs will be in ^ great
flap pretty soon if they don't stop
their pinnings cus there will be
more women in the fraternity than
men. However the Fijis can always
keep them company. The Zetes
just give out flowers — with a song
thrown  in  at  that!
Anyway the point of the matter
is — if there is any in all thi.s —
that everyone should get spring
fever and get all re-juvenated. It's
terrific. There's not much point, to
anything around spring-fever time
See you on the Library lawn.
At least that's what Mae Bawkettc and Ray LeHuguet think.
At Stake
Woman's   femininity   was   al   .stake.
in a debate Thursday. !
'Mama   never  went   out  with   any- '
j ene but her husband  but  this is not
(rue  today"  said  Claire  Greene  dur- [
ing  the University Forum  debate on
thc subject  "I.s Modern  Woman  Los- j
ing   Her   Femininity?" ,
Second speaker, Rodger Bibacc. 1
explained "Woman are accepted in
nearly all walks of life, but, "he !
rp. estioned, has she lost out in her'
emancipation?" j
Bill Hill supported Rodger's statements. He believes women are trying
"lo imitate and emulate men" in
eriler to obtain thc advantages enjoyed by the opposite sex." However, he
holds that women have chosen the
worst traits of men to follow, S'nd
could obtain their end in some other
way   than  this.
In Mr. Hill's words "Persuancc of
their present goal will not be desirable
to   either   sex."
Shirley Manning, the other speaker
defending the poise and grace of
modern women, began her speech b\
putting aside her pipe which, although it looked rather unusual,
made her look no  less like a girl.
Modem women are no longer timid
and frivolous as Miss Manning puts
it "I don't have to be a mere plaything.' She also points out that the
woman's page of The Daily Ubyssey
is  not  masculine in content.
Questions from the floor seemed
to steer immediately towards the
Kmsey report and Shakespeare when
Shirley Manning answered a question by saying there was far more
psychology and explanation in Shakespeare than in the Kinsey report,

Emergency precautions are in operation fcr the terrible epidemic thai
lias  hit   the  campus   this  week, '
The symptoms are many and varied.
The disease usually occurs as a form
of "lackadaisism". It is accompanied
by absent stares, smirks and smiles
at meaningless objects, and a generally strange psychological attitude.
Frequently the victim is afflicted with
mumbling uninlelligble phrases and is
almost impossible to understand under any circumstances. This dread
disease is known as springococcus oi
more commonly as spring fever.
Perhaps the strangest effect of this
seasonal influence is the emptiness of
the Caf. Thc inmates of this infamous
institution can no longer be found

In Touch"
With Ron Grant
By the time this column reaches
print, the Thunrlprbiid rugby feani
will have soared high over the
Cascades and set their wings over
Berkeley, California,
And by way of giving fair warning to "Doc" Miles Hudson and his
Golden Bear rugby proteges, thc
'Birds Saturday ran roughshod over
the Victoria Crimson Tide, posting
a lopsided 19-3 victory.
In spots, the long layoff forced by
the bad weather, showed through the
polished veneer of smooth passing
and hard tackling, that is characteristic of this year's "wonder
But on the whole, Saturday's encounter was just what the doctor
ordered as far as the 'Birds were
In fact, it may be more than the
doctor ordered, if the doctor in
question happens to be Doc Hudson,
aforementioned coach, of California
Golden Bear ruggermen.
Series A Natural.
Anyway you look at it, this year's
home-and-home World Cup series
shapes up as a natural.
Al Laithwaite, 'Bird coach, has
his "wonder team," whose record
speaks for itself. 150 points "for"
and 12 points "against," .with their
line crossed but once, and that in
Saturday's game.
Doc Hudson, word from the South
has it, has a great team. Eight Rose
Bowl players and fourteen out of
fifteen of last year's team back in
Thursday and Saturday in Berkeley's 90,000 capacity stadium, these
two top teams clash in the first of
the four-game series for the coveted
World Cup.
Provided Stan Clarke, Junior Tennant and Geoff Corry play the way
they did in Saturday's match, and
lhe rest of the team follow suit, the
'Birds should leave Berkeley with
a first mortgage on the classic silverware.
Bears Beat  Thund
Sure Handling
Clarke was the outstanding three-
quarter in the Victoria tilt. He
showed unerring change of pace and
his pair of hands were pleasant to
behold. On top of that,, his sure,
tackling broke up many potential
scoring runs by Victoria's three-
John "Junior" Tenant, Varsity's
diminutive scrum half, was a living
witness to the old adage that it is
quality not quanity that counts.
Junior squirmed his 155 pounds
around tho blind side for nice gains
on several occasions Saturday and
managed to weave right between the
posts on one of them. Pound for
pound, Tennan^- is probably the
most valuable man on the team. He
is also the lightest, in case anyone's
feelings might be hurt.
Geoff Corry was his usual tower
of strength on Saturday. Specializing
in "corner-flagging," (backing up
the three-quarters), Geoff i.s a constant source of joy to coach Laithwaite. Corry is also a fine tackier
and in the "tries-scored" department, he bats  well  above  average.

Soccer Boys Aim
For Second Place
Varsity's senior soccer eleven
will be shooting for second
place Saturday, when they
tangle with South Hill at Memorial Park South.
Right now, the students are hitting
their hottest pace of the season, due
mainly to the spark injected by throe
rookie performers, Bud Dobson, Pon
Ronton and Jim  Foster,
Ronton and Dobson are holding
down the two inside positions, and
bolh have developed into potent scoring threats since joining the club.
Foster is a hard hitting halfback
who is being groomed for Gus Mac-
Sween's center half spot, which will
be   coming   vacant  next   year.
In Intermediate circles, the UBC
team has also come to life with a
bang, led by right inside Ron Tur-
bitt and right half Leon Umberto,
who plays the fast, tricky South
American style of ball. UBC meets

Latest advice from the "sunny"
south indicates that the first encounter willl be played with the
dubious benefit of some of California's liquid sunshine. If this
proves to be the case, the 'Birds
may find the going a little tougher
than expected against the top-heavy-
California crew.
Rain or shine however the rugby
hungry California fans can expect
to see a ding dong exhibition of the

Wotherspoon Gets Only Points
For UBC; Reid Slightly Hurt
Heavy, sticky mud and even heavier power in the California scrum combined to bring about the downfall of UBC
Thunderbird  ruggers Thursday afternoon dropping the first (toughest opponent of the year.

Toughest Swim Meet Of
Season Saved 'Til Last
When UBC travels to.Victoria Saturday to meet Victoria
Y for their last encounter of the season, they will be facing
game of their four-match series with the southern team, 8-3.
With rain dominating the weather <?■
cenditions    since    last    Wednesday
morning, the field was literally a sea
of mud.
The heavy going made it utterly impossible for cither team to make it a
passing or running game.
Only the superiority of the scrum
form  of  the   California  college gave
the winners the needed edge to come
through with their earned victory.
Even with the handicap of the adverse weather conditions which prevailed for the last few days, the 'Bird
crew held their own in the first half
nf the contest, ending the period with
a   3-3  tie.
Hilary  Wotherspoon  was  the  hero
ef the occasion, making a spectacular
penalty kick count for the only Thunderbird score of the game.
With a layer of oozy mire sticking
to the sluggish ball, Wotherspoon,
taking his time, placed the ball
squarely between the uprigrts, thrilling the 1000-odd spectators who stayed
despite the torential downpour.
In the second half of the game, the
overpowering weight of the California
crew proved to be too much for the
compartivcly light 'Bird stalwarts.
Pushing the losers constantly towards  their goal  line,'Bears  forced
their way through time and again but
plucky local team staved off countless
Fnally in the latter half of vhe final
period, pushing their way forward
by sheer brute force and endurance,
forced the ball over the 'Bird line to
mark up their second and winning
try. Beautful convertng by California's t'op kicker made the extra
two points to sew up the ball game.
No serious casualties were suffered
by either side but Dougie Reed, one
of the 'Bird's most proficient players
who came through with his usual performance, twisted his ankle,
Although the injury was thought
to be serious at first, Dougie came
ir.rough all right, stating that he
would be playing again in their encounter of the series which takes
piace on Saturday, March r<j.
With the first experience on such
ar. unusual field over with, Coach
Leithwaite feels sure that their second
match will prove more fruitful than
yesterday's game.
Men's and women's teams from thc
campus will be competing against
like clubs from tho Island City who
are  tops  in   their  field.
Thc student femmes will have a
/ight on their hands against the
Victoria aggregation since tho town
has concentrated in thc development
of women swim stylists.
Joan Robinson, hard Working coach
of the lemme squad, feels sure that
her charges will bc able to hold their
own against thc suspected power of
the Victoria brigade.
Although little information has been,
released by secretive Archie McKinnon, coach of tho host team and.former Olympic mentor for the Canadian water .squads, it i.s known that lie
has an Olympic backstrokcr on thc
In addition, McKinnon has in reserve a record-breaking breast-strok-
cr, who just turned Senior. While
still in the junior division, hc undercut the record chalked up by Pcto
Salmond in the fantastic time of close
to   64  seconds.
To add lo UBC's plight, Victoria's
pool,  the Crystal Gardens,,  is a full
fifty   feet   long,   while   the   students
arc used to only 25 foot tanks.
But UBC has a good chance just
the same of taking the men's match.
Jriclt Creedon, George Knight, and
Nick Stobbart are all in the best of
condition since they have been prepping for the coming B. C. Championships. Tho trio have concentrated
on the 220 yard free style in anticipation of the eliminations for this
heat which is swam off March 19.
The rest of the team will be able
to carry their share of the weight
too, having appeared in good condition
in   their   last   few  workouts.
