U Of A Politics
"Gateway" Charges Alberta U.
Social Credit Group Controlled
EDMONTON, Alberta, February S, 1948 (CUP).—University of Alberta "Gateway", in a news-page article, charged
Tuesday that campus politics were being run "behind the
scenes" by off-campus party machines.
In a report of a "closed" caucus of lhe Social Credit Party
group on the campus "Gateway" reporters said:
Al Schindcler, president of ihe
University Social Credit study group,
charged in a closed Socred party
meeting lhat campus political groups
receive direction from off-campus
sources. *
Speaking to a small group of students
attending a Socred party caucus
barred to the press, Schindcler claimed U of A political groups aro "governed   from   the  outside".
In the two-hour meeting in Ans
139 Wednesday, Schindcler revealed
a series of clumsy political manoeuvres which may result in a drastic
reorganization of the political situation on the campus.

'Gables' Artist Robinson
Will Teach At Art Centre
UBCs Art Centre will this week feature one of its own
long-term campus resident artists—Cliff Robinson.
Robinson is at present giving a workshop course in drawing, design, composition, water color and oils.  The course will
continue until the end of the term, and is intended for students
and others who are unable to study art at other times.

Greek Regime Freely Elected"
Says Greek Leader in Debate
Jim Sutherland, president-elect of the Alma Mater.Society,
and Dr. Angelomatis, United Nations Club speaker locked in
verbal duel after Tuesday's U.N. meeting over the Monarchist-
Communist dispute in Greece
Angelomatis charged that Communism was "as bad as
Nazism" and that Roosevelt touched off .the cold war by
appeasing the Russians. Sutherland maintained that the Greek
monarchist regime wa.s •essentially corrupt and put *rto po\#er
by western armies. ''"■

wishing to attend university. b,ut lacking the funds, was urged by Dr. A.E.
Kerr, president of Dalhousie University.   Halifax.
"On the basis of experience with
war veterans," said Dr. Kerr, "some
form of subsidy, such a.s government
scholarships, should be provided for
students who must have tbe money
in order lo continue their education."
Tho dollar sign must not stand in
the way of promising young men and
women, he added. He declared DVA

pointed the way lo Canada's educational   future.

the  Greek  people.
Dr. Angelomatis pointed out, jn roily, that U.N. observers had supervised the Greek elections and thai.
I hough the Communists refused to
participate in the elections, the majority of the Greek people voted
freely for  the present regime.
Dr. Angelomatis was a member of
thc Greek underground movement
throughout the German and Itaii in
occupation and is well acquainted
with at least one side of thc contro-
versay between communist a n d
monarchist organizations. Sutherland
had had experience in thc middle
east during the same period and had
been in Athens at the time Greek
civil  war  broke out.
The controversy revolved around
th^ dispcsilion of Greek troops in
Italy and North Africa, and the treatment accorded members of the EAM.
In the main context of his speech
Dr Angelomatis referred lo America's unfitness in dealing wilh international affairs. He rebuked the late
President' Roosevelt for bis leniency
with Russia a! the conferences in
Tehran   and   Yalta.
"Roosevelt was a big man for Am- |
erica but not for Europe," he said
"America is a big nation, anrl a nation of big business men and I admire
them, but they are ignoian' of foreign relations . , . I hey know nothing
of   lhe   past."
Speaking of international communism he stated that there was little
difference between if and the regimes
of Hitler and Mussolini although they
rose to power as a result' of the peoples' -dread of communism. Nazism
and Communism both derive their
philosophies from Hegel he said.
Tho present policy of Russia and
its agents throughout the world is to
,eek peace and liberty for they have
failed to make a success of their
attempt' to bring about their revolution   by   force.
French. Italian and other communists are now calling for peace. Markos
is seeking peace with the Greek government. A.s long as Russia i.s without the ntcm bomb lie said tho force«
of revolution will seek powr by more
subtle   means.
"Greek capitalists played a very
dirty game,' he said bul he ;.dried
lhat they wore only a \ffiy small
minority. North Americans are foolish be suggested if they believe that
tho forces which oppose the RAM
are necessarily capitalist, or nivalis!.
This  i.s  nul the case.

and the climax to a tender torpid

Excitement mounted as count's and
re-counts were taken. Then tension
became unbearable as the result was
revealed to be a 41-41 tie between

Ferguson, who until this point had

and the air was marie interesting

A.s Ferguson readied his comrades,
the room was in rurmoil. Big Betas
tossed little Betas into the air as the
biggest Beta of all rose and said "42".

A Raise In Fees - - Maybe
During the past few months it has become
increasingly obvious to executives of the
Alma* Mater Society that their albatross-like
debt is not going to be dropped from their
necks within the scheduled, three years.
Despite treasurer Paul Plant's bone-cutting
budget, AMS functions have continued to
lose money and organizations have added
to the debt load with what were obviously
ill-advised expenditures. The remaining three
months of the term offer little hope that litis
situation will better itself.
If there is an answer to the debt problem
next year's Council is going to have to find
The great puddle of spilt milk is apparently
going to lake more than a slashed budget to
clean up. There i.s one other alternative—
raise the AMS fee.
Students are getting little enough for their
IjiKi.OO under the present buflgct and a jump
no matter how small would raise a justifiable
storm of protest, But is there any other
It doesn't, look like it.
Thi.s year's Spring AMS meeting will probably see the question on thc agenda and it
would be well for students to talk the matter
up a bit and if there are any other suggestions
trot them out. Council would be glad to
hear them.

limately in this matter. Two lectures came in an attempt to focus
into one week and emphasize some
of that normal content of certain
courses which pertains to the
Christian religion. Fully competent
lecturers were available, professors were willing to invite them,
and the permission of the Administration   covered   this   point   only.
Mr. Armour asks why such people as Atheists. Bhuddisls. Taoists.
etc.. cannot be represented on the
campus and he asks where the
justice is which allows rights to
one group which are denied to
oliiers. C'-al has such a representation over been requested and denied al this university.' It is quite
pt ssible. lor example, that if Mr.
Armour coLiid produce a highly-
qualified Taoist scholar this man
would be permitted to speak in a
course upon which his faith had
some bearing.
Finally, Mr. Armour, this com-
mitlee wishes to draw your attention, even though il is trite lo do
so, to the fact lhat this is a Christian country, and though all faiths
are equal before the law here, they

Some 2435 sludenl veterans on
Ibis campus .should be damn well
ashamed   of   themselves.
At a well-attended meeting of the
AMS lasl fall a resolution providing I'or a $1 increase in .student
fees was passed unanimously. The
lollar-a-head assessment wa.s to
provide scholarships to bring European students to this country.
UBC sludents seemed to think it
was ti fine way to back up their
enthusiasm for world government,
peace and democracy with a bit of
concrete action, for not one hand
was raised in dissent.
At AMS request the administration has levied the additional dollar on fee-paying students. DVA,
however, ;and quite understandably i refused to pay tlie veterans'
dollar for them.
So the vets were asked to chip in
their buck voluntarily at the last
DVA pay parade. Only $G6fi wa.s
collected   from  3000  veterans!
Meanwhile, 5(100 non-vets, mosl
of whom have more money-worries

Editor,  Daily Ubyssey
I am thoroughly disgusted with a
certain representation of the student
body attending Dr. Endicott's address on Friday, February 4, The
enthusiastic reception of his "Psychological Warfare'' was both revelling and alarming. The contentions of suave mannered speakers
should be scrutinized with logic and
l.ot emotion.
In   these   days   when   doubt   fills
lhe   minds   of   most   it   is   essential
to test the authenticity of facts and
figures   particularly   when   they  are
reported   in   public.   My   test   i.s  an
( lamination   of   integrity   and   sincerity   of   the   person   from   whom
•such  statements  originate.  Endicott,
former advisor to Chiang Kai Shek,
former Methodist or United Church
missionary  must   meet  the test.  His
flagrant  attacks on  his  former  employer Chiang (who I clo not intend
to  defend),   indicate, he   is  willing
liy   serve   for   a   number   of   years
and abandon at  his own  whim. He
openly   .subscribes   to   Communism,
and  in  so doing,  automatically  forfeits   bis   principles   of   Christianity
las     Communism     is   the   absolute
antithesis of Christianity I  of which
he   wa.s  supposedly   a   champion   in
hi.-, days as a clergyman.
Having  left his  employer  (which
may have been justified) and divorced himself from Christianity
(which cannot be justified) hc is
now sowing the seeds for Canadian
Dr.   Endicott   has   failed   the   test.
I do not believe him. Should you?
A.  G.  MacKinnon
The Daily Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I   could   not    resist   replying   to
the   letter   of   A.   G.   MacKinnon
which appeared in The Daily Ubyssey     today.     Mr.     MacKinnon's
strange,  approach    to    evaluating
opinions passed by a guest speaker I found marvellously intriguing.
First  of all,  in contending  that
Dr.   Endicott's  address  should   be
"scrutinized   with   logic"   and  not
"disgusting"     emotionalism,     Mr.
MacKinnon  outlines a  test which
he always applies,  and  which  he
apparently   believes   is   the   very
epitome of logic. He discredits Endicott's   criticism   on   the  grounds
that he is a former adviser of Chiang,  and  he casts aside the ghost
of a chance that Ehdicotf may be
telling  the truth on the principle
that since he was a Christian and
is now ;i  Communist,  that makes
him two-faced.
Now,  rather  than  proceed  with
my    own    analysis   of   Endicott's
speech, or with tiresome claims to
impartiality on the basis Christianity bores me and Communism
scares me—except when looking at
either in historical retrospect—I
should like to ask Mr. MacKinnon
a question;
Am I right in assuming that Mr.
MacKinnon believes a present employee of Chiang Kai-chek and an
orthodox, occupational Christian
are the best persons to evaluate the
Chinese situation and Communism?
Yours Truly,

Hoopsters Face Crisis
In League Play Tonight

BULWARK ON DEFENSE for the UBC Braves is guard Bill Fraser, who along with the rest

Goal-Getting Ice Twins
Key Men On £Bird Squad
The difference between the
Thunderbird Hockey Squad and
just a good hockey team is Haas
Young and Bobby Koch. These
two are the leagues top men, and
are both of top senior calibre,
Haas Young is now playing his
second year with the local squad.
He is third year Physical Education Major, having attended the
University of Alberta before coming to UBC.
He hails from' Edmonton where
he played Junior Hockey with that
city's famed Athletic Club. He wa.s
an outstanding Junior and was tabbed as a potential NHL star. He
spent   two   years   with  the  RCAF
II \\S   *Ol Nf.
PI I   I   Di i il f I'
before coining to ih: ; uiiiasrsitv.
Alter his dischargi from llu- .><-r-
vices, he played with the Los
Angeles Ramblers of the Western
International Loop. The high paid
talent on that .squad resulted in
such terrific expenses that they
disbanded before the season ended,
Haas and two other stand-outs
were signed by Kansas City Pla-
Mors of the United Slates League.
Here he teamed up with Beet Olm-
stead who i.s now with Chicago. The
"kid-line" of the Play-Mors, including Haas, were all assured of
an NHL chance the next .season.
Haas then decided to resume his
education and returned here to
play for the 'Birds. Hc recently
was given his amateur status so
he is now a simon pure.
He is the big boy of the local
squad standing 61" and weighing
185 pounds. At 24 he still ha.s a
promising future in hockey after
His value to the team is evident
when it is seen that he is the leading point getter on the squad. His
strength, speed and stick handling
ability have caught the eye of
several big league scouts. It i.s unlikely that he will leave Varsity
until his: graduation next year.
Haas is a big block winner from
last season and i.s assured of another by his outstanding play of
the present year. He is unquestionably an all-.-slar centre forward.

with the New Westminster Royals
of the Coast loop. On that squad he
played right wing, flanking Ken
Ullyot and Ollie Dorohoy. His decision to resume his education was
a blow to the Royals as Bob had
a great future.
His arrival at UBC caused a
furor in hockey circles as it was
felt he would make the team into
the compact unit it now is.
His deceiving "deke" is now
famous to coast hockey fans. He is
blessed with the unusual asset

Play-oftf Hopes
Dim For Students
"Do or die" will be the theme
of pep talks given by coaches
Doug Whittle and Ole Bakken
tonight as they prime their
Senior A charges, the Chiefs
and the Braves, for their respective Senior A league games.
This evening two teams will be
making last-ditch stands in an attempt to remain in the league race.
With wins as scarce as the proverbial hen's teeth among the student
cagers this year, they both face the
situation of missing the playoffs unless victories start rolling in immediately.
For the Whittlemen, it may already
be too late. With only three wins
to their credit, they have occupied
the league cellar so consistently this
year that it may be impossible to dig
them  out at this  time,
The  Senior  A  schedule  was  more
than half over before the Chiefs acquired their first victory, and then it
was   only   at   the   expense   of   their
I junior brothers, the Braves.
The only other team that the Chiefs
have beaten this >»ear was tlie short-
handed New Westminster Luckies
who  they downed  a few weeks ago.
On the other hand, Ole Bakken's
Braves are not in a much better position and have failed to win at ah
since the resumption of league play
after Christmas.
Starting the year with the so-called
scraps of hoop talent, the Braves got
away with an early start, but of late
have slumped badly as the other
teams have begun to get in shape
and they are now in fifth place, 12
points behind the fourth spot Luckies.
Consequently two campus te-ims
will be facing obliteration when they
lake  to the maples  tonight.
The   Braves   will   have   the   better
chance  of  two  student squads  when
they  meet the  Royal  City  outfit  tonight   at   7:45.
In the second game of the evening,
the Chiefs will have their hands
more than full when they take on
the high-flying Eagle-Time team in
the feature contest.
' Unless they win tonight, the students will have to pack up ihe1:'
tents   and   slink   away.

This series will be little more than
a formality as the Islanders have
taken the measure of thc Fraser-
towners in all six of their encounters.
The 'Birds-Indians series will likely produce more even hockey. On
the season's play the 'Birds won four,
the Indians one, and one was even

are in top condition and will have

Student Council
Slashes UNB
Sports Budget
UBC is not the only university that is having money
troubles with its sports.
In the University of New
Brunswick, the student council has slashed the budget by
almost $2000, cutting out »all
Junior Varsity sports for the
next term.
The purpose of this move is to be
able to spend more money on intramural sports. This action by the court-
cil caused considerable friction among
trie representatives of the respective
junior sport clubs, but' it was felt
that the cut was necessary in order
to uphold the top-heavy budget.
Also, in view of the unusual procedure followed last year in appropriating funds to the minor sport organizations, where Junior Varsity basketball was granted $200 while the
hockey squad was forced to function
with no grant whatever, it seemed
only just for thc council to put all
die clubs on an equal footing.
With thc same vehemence the representatives passed a motion to suspend all non-alhletic\ athletic, and
jiwellry awards as well as the athletic party and the party of the uni-

The slashing had not affected Senior
Varsity which received $1600, or the
swimming team with its $900 grant.
Likewise the yearbook and the student paper were not cut down.
