Defeat of the Liberal government
came when the House voted on an
amendment to the Speech from the
Throne, which was moved by Isobel
Cameron,  Opposition  leader.
Following filibutsering tactics by
Liberal back-benchers the matter
was finally brought to issue, and thc
vote taken on the CCF amendment.

Frank Lewis, unable to gain the support of the other two parties, was
attempting to have the House prorogued,  and a new election called.

At 10:15 p.m. the Liberal leader,

He made the statement in the course
of an Arts-Engineers debate Monday
on the question of whether engineers
are educated or only skilled. Don
Urquhart defended the cause of tl.c
applied  sciencemen.
"Applied science teaches detail.^,"
continued Broderick. "If it does teach
students to think it is only in their
own   narrow   field."
Urquhart held that the engineer,
like the artsman. appreciates sucn
sights as the Lions Gate Bridge or
the Marine Building, but he a Is >
appreciates the work that went in ai
them, "Engineers present something
useful   to  society,"   he   added.
The remarks of Ihe speake as
aroused considerable controversy belween   engineers   and   art.smen   in   die
by   AMS   President   Dave   Brousson,
he stated that this is the reason why
three  choices  had  to  be  included   in
the referendum ballot to be submitted
t) students March 10.
Complete statement is as follows:
In  order   to   answer  questions   regarding   the   handling  of   the  referendum  on  AMS  fees,  I  would  like
to make the following points:
1. The motion passed last October
regarding the $1 increase for the
Foreign Scholarship Fund was worded
'for the current year." This means
that unless the Society were to request otherwise of the Administration,
the E'ursar would collect only $15.00,
or the same fee as last year.
2. Therefore it is necessary to include in the choices for the referendum  the following:
a. The fee proposed by Plant $20.00
b. The fee collected this year $16.00
c. The fee that would have been
collected next year $15 00
3. Voting will be preferential, following constitutional practice for all
AMS voting.
4. It is interesting to note that
several other universities in Canada
have followed UBC's lead in levying
a ' compuLsory $1 fee for Foreign
5. It is somewhat disconcerting to
me to note that, after one General
Meeting has refused to vote on an
issue presented to it, another group
is now circulating a petition to call
for a General Meeting to vote on
another issue.
In a stafement yesterday AMS
Treasurer Paul Plant said, "Students
will save money in the long run by
voting for the  fee  increase."
He   pointed   out   that   the   increase
in   fees   i.s   not   designed   to   bridge
the  War  Memorial  debt,  but  lo  help
stabilize  the Alma Mater  Society,
Under the increased fees ho said the
following  benefits  would  result:
(1) Student admissions would h;
reduced to all events sponsored by
thc AMS or any other subsidiaiy
2. Football tickets would go lor
half the price they sold for this year.
3. Admission to basketball games
would be reduced,
4. Undergraduate social functions
would sell tickets for half or less
than half the cost they went for this
5. There would be less chance of
the Society going into debt as they
have this year over unsuccessful
dances   and   class   parties.
Plant says that he wishes any students who are confused regarding
Ihe issue would contact him at. his
office or at. meeting so he colucI
explain   it  to  them.

Shades of  the Inquisition
Next Monday the Civil Liberties Union
will pn ■un! Dr. Ralph Gundlach, dismissed
University oi \Y;is!utio;ton social psychologist.
Dr. Gundlach has U.vn grievously wrong-
tad and UBC students will do well to consider
his predicament carefully lost the Hon. R. C.
MacDonald and other politicians who are
pi one to act before 'hey think should succeed
in perpetratim; such a dastardy here\
II will hi- remembered that Dr. Gund-
iaeh's "(.Times" consisted of his membership
in a Consumer's Union, his support of Spanish
Republican Kefugees. and his aid to a night
school i'or trade unionists,
He was further charged with conducting
"unscientific" researches and "incompetence.''
I'he basis of these charges were a series
of questionnaires issued by Washington social
psychologists in connection with research pi o-
jecits; The committee on academic tenure
objected to four out of scores of questionaires,
One of the four questionaires had been prepared by Dr. Gundlach.
!>uring the hearings, four witnesses were
presented to testify that Dr. Gundlach was
a Communist. One of these, a Mr. Hewett,
testified that Gundlach had been teaching at
a. Communist schdbl in New York at a time
'hen he was, beyond a doubt, in California.
When Mr. Hewett was indicted for perjury
in connection with the charges, police comment was "Oh Hewett, he's been arrested
lor perjury several times."
Dr. Gundlach's case is not only a gross
violation of academic ethics but an indication
that scales of justice south of the border are
in dire need of some adjustment.
Those who regard freedom for Communists as license might suffer a change of heart
were they to examine current history with
eyes not quite so jaundiced as those of Dr.
Raymond B. Allen and the Hon. R. C. MacDonald.
Immediately following the Washington
dismissals two Oregon professors were dismissed (allegedly) because they belonged to
the Progressive Party—a party whose avowed
aim was to keep peace and make capitalism

letters to the editor
Editor, Daily Ubyssey, Dear Sir:
The other clay I  wandered   inu>
the Library and  as usual I could
not  find   a  seat.  Yot   there   were
many potential seals  but at each
place I looked there was a book or
a lunch or a coat. AU these tilings
had   been   left   there   by   selfish
people who did not think th^t their
loVe of self was depriving a fellow
student of much needed studying
space. After wasting much precious
time I did manage to gel a space.
I thought that at last I would get
some work done. My thinking was
very  wrong.   It   happened   that   a
student beside me was very pop-

Editor, Daily Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
In reply to the letter of Mr, Alvin Nemetz in which he made thc
accusation of 'sour grapes' regarding the Mock Parliament elections,
I would like to say just this: 1) I
' '' that it was important not to
a'low such negligence as was witnessed   in   the  elections   pass  un
noticed and uncensured. 2) I merely asked for "some official interrogation regarding the validity of
the "election," not ' for another
election. 3) My attitude was certainly not one of 'sour grapes' and
I endeavoured to keep any such
tone from my letter since it would
be absurd to think that another
election would result in a reversal
or, indeed, in any significant shift
in balloting. In conclusion then,
let me repeat that such an unfortunate and unbusiness-likc lack of
ballots in thc election is deplorable
and that all students should bc
aware that the instance occurred
so that recurrence in the future
may be avoided.
Incidentally,  Mr.  Nemetz,  those
odds are pretty high—I did NOT

• ■   . '    '.       .rar.cl Theatre  in the
.cture called, "Snake Pit."
•:■ or has sat through so many
•\ ih's type that   to see one with
'  'ts'hle c'to:y, a plausible ailment,
nd a plausible cure  is truly an oasis
'n a desert of celluloid.
The title of the picture comes from
the ancient belief that to cure a person
who is insane you toss him into a pit oi
snakes and the same type of shock that
unbalanced him mentally will restore
him to sanity.
This belief bits the heroine when she
is tossed into Bedlam in Juniper Hill
Hospital in an unidentified state in
the United States. The film also comes
out a subtle piece of propaganda aimed
at over-crowded conditions and incompetent help in U.S. mental homos.
Olivia De HaviHand, as the picture's
heroine, gives an impressive picture ol
a woman driven to a nervous breakdown by factors that reach right back
into her early childhood and of the
gradual addition to the guilt complex
that is to cause her downfall.
Mark Stevens, as her kind, attentive
husband,   is   a   patient,   hard-working
man who hopes, and not in vain, for
'her eventual recovery. A professionally
psychological touch is given the whole
film with the presence of Dr. Kick,
who taken out of context with the film
as a whole could very well pass for a
doctor. Some of the technique used in
the picture manage very well to convey the conditions in mental hospitals.
Miss De Havilland's condition is not
told in medical claptrap but in ward
numbers. Alter each scene in which she
becomes mentally more unbalanced
there is a fadeout and the next scene
opens with a picture of a ward number.
The higher the number goes, the more
demented and unpleasant her surroundings.
The camera makes special efforts to
capture the bizarre, demented faces
of the inmates in the picture. Simple
touches like an inmate singing the song
"Going Home," while her hands writhe
and twist, and the use of grotesque
shadows on walls adds up lo intelligent
handlin ; and not sensationalism,
The  lack ol  help and the incompet- j
once of medical officers in U.S. mental \
hospitals aho gets a more or less subtle]
jab  in   Iho  r bs.  Under  the  torturing'
waggling of a finger in the picture bj
:i ;dnb of a doctor. Miss Do Havillancl
by jim banham
takes a chunk out of the same finger
and immediately lapses back into her
old condition. With the desire of the
same doctor to get her out of the hospital while she was not yet well, and
the iron, stony-faced impatience of the
ward superintendant, it is small wonder
that many inmates spend their life in
such institutions.
The picture is spiced at points with
humor—but not the sort that makes
you laugh at the patients. An ex-chorus
girl dances on a rug in one of the wards
that is never walked on while screaming the jazz tune, "Sweet Georgia
Brown," and another inmate covers her
face with her long hair and slinks
around mumbling, " I have a right to
cover my face, I'm the first lady of
the land," and the total effect is not
derogatory but humorous.
All the inmates of the hospital arc
plausible,   unhappy   persons  that  one
can feel compassion and warmth for.
This   is   perhaps   the   picture's  strong
point. Best line of the picture comes
from  Miss  De 'Havilland,  who,  when
asked where it is all going to end, replies, "I'il tell you where  it will end.

What we don't know about our
own campus would fill a book! The
prospect of guiding curious visitors
on Open House Day serves to bring
this fact home with a bang.
Of course you can always string
along line about a place once you
get there. After all, if someone
stops at the Physics Building and
asks about the atom smashing, you
can simply point to the wrecked
Home Ec huts and explain that
"we had a slight accident when
someone left the cyclotron on".
Sortie people will believe anything.
Hide and Seek
"The Library present's its problems
too. What with the'new wing being
a 'complete mystery to nearly everyone, we can expect to see visitors
wandering around the maze for the
next few weeks. And it will definitely not do to show anyone the
stacks! It would be fatal to take a
sight-seeing tour down there. Much
as some small children would love
a game of hide-and-seek, the fond
mamas and papas might take a dim
view of the pitfalls of the place—
Youp can expect to see all types
among our visitors. Sweet old ladies,
cynical men of the world, and high
school students still wet behind the
ears are all bound to be properly
Impressed with our "wondrous institution of culture and learning".
They'll still believe it too, provided the guides keep them on the
straight and narrow path and don't
make the hideous, mistake of taking
them to that complete give-away—
the Caf. Th>se lovely impressions
will be banished with the Caf smoki
and doffee.
What happened to tho culture?
The visitors will see poor so-called
students slumped over the tables-
lovely young things with great black
smudgss beneath their sweet innocent eyes—upstanding young men
(unshaven); and all m.idty guzzling
coffee and chain smoking, Surely
this can't be the hope of the nation!
However the guides will try and
impress the visiting factions tht.t all
is riot as it seems. Social life can t
be helped and neither can Saturday
mornings. Maybe it can all be explained away by swearing that
"these characters are simply loaded
with culture. They discuss art and
music all the time. Studying must
be getting them down". That ought
to be the trick. After all, some
people will believe anything.

WUS Panel Group
Favors Education
"Are women worth educating?" was the topic of the panel
discussion sponsored by WUS last Wednesday night in conjunction with Open House Week.
Helen   Lindsay   opened   the   panel-
with a talk in which she stressed the
need for women's residences on the
campus. Dean Dorothy Mawdsley thsn
introduced the members of the panel.
Mrs. N.A.M. MacKenzie was moderator of the discussion.
Miss Yvonne Love, consultant in
nutrition, Provincial Department of
Health and Welfare, spoke of the
value of home economics to the future
homemaker. She said that home management is now the most inefficient of
all jobs and can lead to broken homes.
Home education helps to solve these
Mrs. Hamilton Read stressed the
fact that a university education trains
the mind to learn and certainly improves the mind. A woman educated
in law develops certain valuable
qualities which can make her an
asset to any community. She said that
r. woman of a superior education has
n definite place in her community
and that women are citizens and individuals and should be treated ?s
Dr. Ethlyn Trapp presented statistics showing that approximately 90
percent of those women who become
doctors make it their full-time career.
She showed that there was evidence
that women physicians are definitely
worth their training and that there
are many opportunities for women in
medicine   in   co-operation   with  men.
Mrs. Grace Mclnnes, representing
a woman in public life, stated that
hers was a field that in the past had
given few opportunities to women, but
that now they are beginning to take
a more active part in that field, She
believes that women today are taking
education seriously, and that only
through community service can they
find self-realization.
Miss Evelyn Mallory, of the Registered Nurses' Association, stated that
a university education will soon be
essential if a nurse is to carry out
her   duties   effectively.
Models Show
Spring Trend
Spring round-the-clock fashions will
be featured at Saturday's Fashion
Show to be held in the Brock from
three to four o'clock.
Sports clothes for spring will highlight the first part of the program,
followed by suits and dresses keyed
lo Easter afternoon affairs.
Evening gowns and a display of the
latest in negligees will close the
program, which is sponsored by the
Hudson Bay Co. Esme MacDonald will
commentate, while Al MacMillan's
orchestra will provide the background
music. Marilyn Frederickson is featured in a couple of solos.
Models are: Del Stockstead, Joan
Vivian, Joan Fraser, Joan Taylor, Joan
Doyle, Eleanor Matheson, June Mclntyre, Kay MacDonald, Marg Hodson
and Grace Flavelle.
Mrs. MacKenzie said that an educated woman in the home is still part
of the community and if she is educated, so much the better. "An educated woman will bring the objective
point of view to life's questions,"
stated Mrs. MacKenzie, "and a high
degree of civilisation doesn't rest on
material things but in the moral and
spiritual temper of the people." •
raon fioifs
As catching as a lilting tunc is tla
newly-dfscovered hobby of sewing
)our own clothes. The pattern counters in the popular shops are crowded
. . . not with old women that have
time on their hands, but with high
school and university coeds!
They take a while to select their
pattern, then with a look of anticipation on their faces, they hunt uo
and down.the rows of fine fabrics;
feeling, admiring, and then finally
chosing the fabric that they think is
most suited to their needs. The end
result of this interest is a well turned
out skirt or blouse ... or even a
suit, coat or dress. And perhaps thc
most gratifying thing is that these
"home creations" seldom look homemade or dowdy.
tji 9p »j»
WHY? . . . Why the seemingly sudden desire to sew? What is the reason
for these successful, good-looking
garments? Perhaps the best explanation lies in the well read fashion
journals: practically without exception, all feature a section on patterns
ir. which they portray the made up
design on a model.
If you are considering economy,
then sewing your own clothes is the
answer. From personal experience,
three dresses can be made for the
cost of one good bought dress; suits
can be made of the finest fabrics,
from the best pattern for the price
of the cheapest suit obainable on the
market; coas can be sewn at home
from a choice of fabrics that have
no parallel to those found in mass
production on the racks.
*fl *r v
You will never find your double
walking down the street . ■■■■, . in an
identical outfit, because the chances
are very slim that another person
would choose the s3me pattern as
well as he same fabric!
Today, the pattern people are ever
on the watch to bring you the mo,st
original, authentic designs, as well as
those which are top fashion. from
their first appearance to the day they
wear out from faithful use ... If
you have not already experienced the
thrill of wearing a garment made by
"You and Co." then why not select
a pattern and some fabric on your
next trip downtown . . .  ?  ?

Tomorrow, though, they go into action against Victoria Crimson
"TURN TI1F, TIDE" is the motto oi the above pictured rugger

Thunderette Cagers Tie In
Final Series With Frasers
Mearnie Summers Leads Girls
In Strong Fourth Quarter Bid
Down 31-26 in the third quarter, UBC Thunderettes put
on a spirited last quarter offense to take the second game of the
Senior B women's basketball final, 45-35 from Fraser Cafe.

with ron grant
Almost every American football
team has one or more "60-minute"
men, who is lauded and applauded
for his ability to stay the full route
of the encounter.
Be that as it may, every man on
an English rugby team is not just
a 60-minute man, he is a 90-minute
man, and it is 90 minutes of what
is as hard and fast a game as anyone can care  to  think of.
To play 90 minutes of rugby requires the players to be in absolutely
top physical condition — nothing
short will suffice. Condition is not
everything, but no team can expect' to win games unless their
players are in condition.
One man who realizes and capitalizes on this ''condition factor" is
Albert Laithwaite. coach of the
'Bird "wonder team". Two, three
and often four times a week, rain
or shine, Albert has his charges
out,' running,  kicking  and   tackling.
When you see Saturday's game
against Victoria, bear in mind what
I have said about condition, because it will be thi.s condition in
the second half of thc game that
will  literally  "run   the Tide".
Big Scrum
On the subject  of condition,  keep
your eyes peeled also on Saturday's
game for two of the best conditioned
forwards   in   the   till.   Les   Henipshall
and   Hartt   Crosby.    Les   and   [Ian1

having taken the first 54-36,
Mearnie Summers, perennial scoriig
leader of the Thunderettes again
copped high honors, although she
had to share them with two of the
New Westminster girls, Pat Swanson
and Pat Macintosh. All three rang
up eleven points.
With the series tied, a third game
will be necessary to establish a
champion. The potent New Westminster girls are never an easy mark
but Thunderettes have been rated
a good chance of upsetting the riverside club.

'Birds Battle
In Hoop Tilt
As an added attraction to the McKechnie Cup English rugby match between Thunderbirds and Victoria's
Crimson Tide, athletic officials pf
UBC's Open House Day have also
scheduled an exhibition basketball
match, which will contest the university's 'Bird hoopers against a combined Brave and Chief congregation.
Buds, who have just completed their
Evergreen Conference schedule and
who met Clover Leafs in a non-contest lilt Thursday night, will go against
their younger brothers in the Varsity
j Gymnasium   at   noon  Saturday.
Perennial winners during Senior B
inter-city league play, the Brave and

Tide. «<
Replete with drum majorettes and
band, Ole Bakken has landed himself a natural crowd-pleascr for
what promises to be the biggest sport
event of the spring term. Open.House
visitors should detour long enough
to observe Thunderbirds and Tide do
The two clubs are natural 'enemies,'
not only because of the age-old Vancouver-Victoria controversy, but also
because the Tide are the only club
in sight who boast a victory over
the high-flying Thunderbird fifteen
in recent years. Of course, the Wallabies turned the trick last spring, but
they are definitely out of sight—half
way around the world,  in fact.
Victoria coach Campbell Forbes
boasts three ex-Thuhderbirds in the
persons of Scottie Kerr, and Keith
MacDonald, king-size forwards and
Bud Lott, stand-off half, who will
see action against their former teammates.
Thunderbird boosters are anxious
to see the highly touted "Wonder
Team," reputed this year to be
stronger <han   ever  before.
UB'C holds the only victory of the
winter-delayed schedule—a 22-0 shellacking which they administered to
thc Tide early in January. Tide and
Vancouver Reps, had previously
fought to an 8 point draw on Boxing
day. Therefore, should UBC win as
expected, the Victoria Entry will be
virtually eliminated.
Next week, the 'Birds travel fo
California to open their defense of
the World Cup which they won for
the second time last season against
southern clubs.
Line-ups follow: Victoria: Smith,
Kerr, Martin, Alexander, Williams,
MacDonald, Blyth, Lott, Skillings, 5.

UBC: Crosby. Carldlc, Hempshall,

Soccer Schedule
Set For Weekend
Another feature of Saturday's Open
House program will be a Vancouver
and District Soccer league tilt on the
campus, matching Varsity and Raniers.
This is the first action along thc
soccer front since early December.
The Varsity eleven has been working
out this week, and should be in good
shape for Saturday's tilt, which gets
underway at 2:45 p.m.
UBC will also see action in the
Intermediate league this weekend
with a game scheduled for Sunday
afternoon on the campus.
