FIREMEN arrived in time to avert a major blaze Saturday.
Fire was confined mainly to tho boiler room and kitchen and
was extinguished by University firemen and volunteers from
Westbrook and Acadia Camps. Photos By Cob Steiner
Every Campus fire seems to have its humorous side, and
the Totem blaze was no exception.
The To fem Snack Bar was nol the
only thing .soaked with water in
Saturday's fire.
Dr. N. A. IM. Mackenzie, wandering
around in thc ruins received a rude
shock when a fireman, spraying the
roof with a solid stream of water shot
the water through a hole in the roof

Professors and Student Affairs
letters to the editor
University professors,'because of their stature in the community and, as a general rule,
Iheir ability at .objective analysis, have long
agcovon the right to comment from the lecture platform on matters of importance outside the narrow bounds of a course of studies.
Exercise of this right, and in a democratic
university it must be considered a right,
serves both to. dovetail „a curriculum with
current affairs and to add welcome spice to
a professor's diurnal offerings.
The professor's right to comment cannot
be denied in student affairs any more than
, it can be denie'd in any field.
i But comment on student elections and espe-
* cially partisan' campaigning must certainly
•; lie beyond the bounds of a professor's prerogatives.
a It:is disturbing to thoughts of student self-
reliance to hear an English professor urge his
class to vote for an Alma Mater Society
business manager on the very date that students were casting ballots on the business
manager-finance board referendum.
Mis comments and urgent pleadings cannot be said to have had any real effect on
the outcome of the, ballot, but the professor's
words may have helped to undermine th<
faith of his listeners in those elected student
officers who opposed the appointment of n
business manager.
Altruistic as the professor may consider
himself, he must find it difficult to justify
sprinkling a Jane Eyre lecture with comments
on the need for reform in Brock Hall.
It should not be implied, however, that
student affairs as a whole are outside thc
professor's field of legitimate comment. The
Daily Ubyssey has long enjoyed the honor of
being almost a supplementary text in English
grammar classes and its editors good-
naturedly encourage it because they appreciate both tho validity of the comment and
its value to circulation.
There can be little of value, however, in
partisan campaigning from the lecture platform.
Less 'Mock7
n Mock Parliament
Tomorrow, when UBC students choose the
remainder of the Councillors to serve them
for the coming year, they will also have the
opportunity of casting.a vote in the annual
JWock Parliament Election. Campus-wide voting by ballot, an innovation last year, is again
■being used because of its marked superiority
over, the previous type of election where a
'few students attended a noon-hour meeting
and elected a Mock Parliament which purported; to'be representative of University
political opinion.
Because of the keen interest the general
public takes in student activities and expressions of opinion (which will be widely diffused this year because the Mock Parliament
is being held as a feature of Open House
Week) it i.s important that whatever decision
is made by the electorate on Wednesday, it
be based pn a fair and authentic sample
which can only be obtained by a large vote.
Last year the percentage vote was only
15 percent. This kind of thing can only lead
to charges that, whatever the result, it does
not fairly represent campus opinion. UBC
has developed a national reputation for its
keen interest in political problems and public
affairs. When we compare ourselves to the
University of Saskatchewan, however, where
over 50 percent of students turn out to vote
tor their Mock Parliament, it is obvious that
improvements must be made to preserve our
national standing.
Intelligent interest in politics is the cornerstone of democracy and liberty. There is no
group in the community with a greater responsibility to show such interest than University students.

Dear Sir:
We feel that'certain misconceptions regarding tbe apathy Of student-veterans to the ISS scholarship plan might well be cleared
up. Although the 'well attended'
meeting of the AMS passed the '
resolution, actual figures are not
available as to the number of affirmative votes. There were a considerable number of negative votes,
which, added to tho 2435 (f.'gurea
Mr. Eroderick's) veteran abstainers
forms a fairly substantial argument
•gainst unanimity. How is Mr.
Broderick so certain that non-vct-
<eran students paid willingly. It
seems their choice was somewhat
restricted, since tho dollar was
-added  to term fees.
•We feel that neither qpathy, financial inability or niggardliness arc
the chief reasons for thc failure of
unanimous contribution by DVA
- students. We have no personal antipathy toward German or any other
European students, but we feel
that* the principle of 'teaching'
democracy is in no way certain of
having the desired effect, Norway,
it will be remembered, has reason
to rue its charity in this direction
after World War I.
The fact that the AMS and the
ISS asked DVA to contribute is due
to the regrettable tendency of certain campus groups to look upon
DVA as some sort of charitable
institution. There have been in the
past, and will undoubtedly be in
the future, many veterans who, due
to financial crises involving fnr less
than $1500 have been unable to
complete their studies. Surely these
men deserve first consideration. It
will be recalled that they have
already spent some years trying to
'teach'  Germans  'democracy.'

Dear Sir:
We are organizing a Bewley Club
on the campus and our membership
drive is about to get under way.
How fortunate we are to have a man
of Mr, Bewley's stature among us—
a leader and a prophet whose ideas
arc nonetheless sane and down to
Let us briefly review Mr. Bewley's
journalistic endeavours.
No doubt' you all read Mr, Bewley's views on the Martin affair.
He showed how the lunatic left
wingers threaten our liberties. Freedom demands that we rid ourselves
of such fanatics. More and bigger
Martin purges will make the body
politic pure and sound and assure
democratic freedoms t'o everyone.
Once and for all we must exclude
all fsinatics, zealot';, radicals, and
anti-capitalists from participating
anywhere in our equal opportunity,
free enterprise economy. Only thus
can we protect the Four Freedoms.
No doubt you have noticed that
Mr. Bewley has aimed cutting remarks at the Civil Liberties Union.
Tfiis might seem odd to you. Admittedly one would expect,' a law stud-
end to cherish and to bc concerned
with tho concepts of equality and
freedom upon which our legal structure is based. It might seem odd
that Mr. Bewley frequently goes
mu' of his road to show the contempt in which hc holds civil liberties and tho people who believe in
them, However,  this simply proves
lhat his Ideas are untinged with any
impractical idealism,
Perhaps too you read his open
lament to the President, in which he
disclosed that- the President's task
was made especially irksome by the
fact that stupid, narrow-minded,
bigoted students neither think nor
act like Mr. Bewley. You might
have misinterpreted this and concluded that Mr. Bewley was bejng
a modern Pharisee. This letter, however, proves that Mr. Bewley was
opposed to wooly idealistic thinking,
and in his immense practicality realizes that tolerance has its limitations.
No doubt you remember his attack
upon one of our professors. You
might, at first', have considered that
attack stupid, presumtuous and in
bad taste, but thc tact is Hint the
time has come for a thorough going
purge of our University staff. Deluded men who confuse our glorious
liberties with freedom of opinion,
or freedom of speech must go. Only
the practical 1Q0 percent Canadian
professors should bo allowed to stay.
Come on. students—let's get behind
Bewloy and  boost.

Dear Sir:
During my first very pleasant
months at UBC I have been continu-
r.lly amazed at thc acrobatic agility
of the University in patting itself on
the back. Your editorial of February
11, "The Price of Virtue," is yet another illustration of a youthful refreshing lack of self-modesty.
In it you indulge in some self-satisfied moralizing on the fact that
Controller Balfour wishes ,to follow
Toronto's gift of $2,000,000 to the
University of Toronto with an investigation into democracy on the
campus. You imply that UBC is uniquely blessed in it's academic freedom (we have already heard so
^ much of UBC's gloriously inept
student autonomy) and that repression is rampant at the University of Toronto. And you draw the
astonishing conclusion that academic
freedom is t'he result of state rather
than private support.
I think that there are a few facts
to be born in mind:
1. Torontonians have long made a
hobby of not taking Controller Balfour seriously.
2. The University of Toronto probably draws about 90 percent of its
operating revenues from the government  and student fees,
3. Tho privately supported denominational arts colleges affiliated
wilh the University of Toronto
have been the chief bulwark agains1
government interference in thc University's academic affairs, For example, Trinity College 'the church
of Kngland college* provided a hall
for thc Dean of Canterbury when
university accommodation was found
to he full.
4. Only in the great privately supported universities such as Oxford,
Cambridge or Harvard is academic
ficedom assured,
,ri. UBC's academic freedom can
last only as long ns the Government
iit Victoria remains tolerant and uninterested. If the government moves
either to the right' or the left, UBC
may find itself hard pressed. The
state supported American universities are not noted for their academic

Here's a hard, cold fact for you, Frankenstein:
Lawrence Marshall, 28-ycar-old movie
usher of Bcechwood Drive, Coatbridge, Lanark, bought *his; girl friend an upper set of
false; teeth.
Then their romance ended.
One day last December he met her in the
company of another man.
He grabbed her and pulled the false teeth
from her mouth. He had them in his pocket
when lie was arrested. He was fined £2 or
20 days in jail for assault at Coatbridge court.
How do you like that Frankenstein?
Hard and cold enough to suit you?
Do you think, you dealer in earth's lumpy

showing your brides and grooms to be that

Well, now, you meccano-set matritnonailists.
Do you think that, by fixing the soft eye of
womanhood upon the Poponoe Principle that
no man i.s perfect, she will be capable of doing
anything else than constantly looking for the
imperfections which you assure her exist?
And you, you Tinker-Toy thoocrats, do you
believe that, by fixing the stern eye of manhood upon the possibility that the woman of
his choice may bo so fickle, so base, so gaily
deceiving, lhat she may offer the very uppers
he bought for her, to another man; do you
think that man will be capable of other than
brooding over who's looking at Iter tippers—
his uppers—now?  Madmen!  Ministers!
A pox upon the lot of you. „ ,
You sec to vivisect the eternal verities.
Better that you remember the stores of your
You recall, do you not, thc story of the
man who spent his whole life walking with
head downcast, looking for gold in the street?
And how ho found a measure of gold, but

Alderman Wilson pleaded for more
co-operation between federal, provincial and municipal .governments to
see that everyone in Canada is properly housed.
' Claiming that existing Liberal government has bungled in housing problems, Wilson stated, "Canada lags
behind the whole world." "The National governments of Britain the United States and various countries in
Europe and even the Argentine have
accomplished nunc than we in Canada,"
Wilson was particularly vehement
in his denunciation of the government's handling of the proposed trans-

said "is to employ selective immigration."
. "Price controls and price fixiue,"
is no permanent solution to high
prices". Invariably when restrictions
are removed and a competitive basis

in prices." A more normal basis prevails when private business is not

Takes Second
Gloves Crown
For the second time in as
many weeks, the title of Golden
Gloves champion has "been bestowed on the slim shoulders
of UBC boxer Don Codville.
On Saturday night before a
host of eager fans and questioning reporters, the 21-year-old
student reached the peak of
amateur fame in Vancouver
when he was crowned king of
the 10th annual Golden Gloves
competition. *
-Duncan's Codville, who lifted the
Vancouver Island version of the most
popular champion award only a week
ago in Victoria, was still plenty good
enough to win the lightweight title

UBC, Don is the eldest of three fighting brothers. Brother Bruce lost to
him Friday in the local tournament,

' Don, who sweated down to 135
pounds for the mainland grind, saw
action twice after his Friday night
tifi with Brother Bruce and scored
a brace of upset victories. In his semifinal shot he carried just too much
power for boxing dandy Art Burgess,
a fellow Islander, and had a two-point
.edge in the judging against veteran
Ken McPhee from Lou Dalke's Bur-
yard Lions AC.
The hard hitting welterweight, a
member, of the UBC boxing club,
scored the biggest upset of the tourney
when he decisioned the talented McPhee of Vancouver in what observers
agreed was also the best bout of the
two-night clout carnival.

In ice Play-offs
It's do or die for thc much
travelled Thunderbirds at tho
Forum tonight when thoy
tackle the highly touted Indians
in the first game of a two-game
total-goals play-off.
The game tonight is at the Forum
"as the Canucks are on their Southern
tour. Game time is 8:30 . Tho second
game goes  Wednesday  night  also  at
rhe Forum.
When the travel weary 'Birds take
to tlie ice tonight it will be their
fourth game in four days. They returned last night from a successful
tour of the Interior. /
Last weekend the Nanaimo Clippers
eliminated the N. W. Cubs via 9-8 and
4-3 victories to win the total goals
series 13-11.
. The winners of the 'Bird-Indian encounter will face the Clippers in a
best four of seven series for the coast
title. Tonight's game promises to be
a thriller as both clubs have an equal
chance under this archaic elimination setup.

for a change.
But' what a difference between the
two nights' play, In the CPS game,
tho 'Birds got away to a flying start,
in fact they really looked like the
championship club of old.
Then, after the 10-minute mark the
Loggers started to find the bucket,
and tho 'Birds didn't show much life
until the last pdrt of the last half
when they began to challenge for the
lead but couldn't quite pull it off,
But the general ball handling of
both teams was good, despite the morale loss of the Loggers who were doing without the services of captain
Bob Finchman who suffered facial
lacerations in an accident on the highway between Mount Vernon and Bellingham.
As   a   down-town   paper  said,   the
'Birds took an "effortless" win over
the   Saints   on   Saturday   night.
Part of the game took the form of
a scoring duel between Ranger centre
Dion and 'Bird pivotman Forsyth,
currently running one-two in the scoring race of the Evergreen Conference,
and each man held the other to a
scant nine points.
One place that the 'Birds did man-
ape to click was on the free shot, line
getting a high percentage of their
gratis throws to go through the hoop,
Most noticeable factor of the Saturday nirrht battle was tho quantity of
foul shots awarded, and the appearance the game took on of a football

Swimmers Swamp Vikes
Splashmen  Break Third  Record
During Meet in  Bellingham
UBC's swimming team had a big week-end in Bellingham
when they swamped Western Washington College Vikings in
their first coast league intercollegiate meet of the season.
For tho third time this term, a member of their team has
shattered a Canadian Intercollegiate record in formal competition. « —
Free-styler Jack Creedon knocked
four-tenths of a second off the existing 200 yard event, setting "the new
time of 2:06.6 for the race.
In their first coast league match
of the current season, the UBC aggregation literally swam away with the
winners' laurels, placing first and
second in every event of the meet to
swamp the Vikings squad with a total
of 59 points to the losers' 8.
In the diving matches, only two entries took part but UBC again came
out on top. Jim Hawthorne out-pointed Western Washington's performer
127.3 to 118.3, to take the crown for
the visitors.
Breaking down the points into their
individual listings, the results showed
that the old standings of the local's
club came through with most of the
top times.
