the series "Sermons from Science,"
produced by Dr. Irwin Moon. Like
"The God of the Atom" and "The God
of Creation", "The Voice of the Deep"
is in natural color and portrays the
wonders of the undersea world—including scientific evidence that fish
and other submarine life are not as
silent as has heretofore been thought.
Its first appearance on the campus
will be this Tuesday, January 18, in
Physics 200 at 12:30 noon.

To  Reign
UBC Freshmen have cho.-vn their
C|lieen to reign over the Frosh Ball

Hpngry For Religion - Can't
Accept Present Beliefs
General charge that modern university .students have no
interest in religion was refuted today hy D. K. Paul, editor of
the Thunderbird.
''It   is  entirely   wrong,"   stated   Paul® — ———•
in   an   iii'orview   with   a   Ubv-'sev   re-
pia lor. "to say I'luil UBC slude.its,
and by dial most Canadian students,
have   no   impulse   towards   religion."
Some hundred manuscript-. Ware
submitted lo the Thunderbird, and
over 80 percent of these weie either
religious  in  content  or  mood.
"I   cannot   imagine   that   only those
wlio   write   have   these   ideas;   I think

IFC Starts
Campus Drive
For Books
International Fraternity Council
opened their book drive Monday in
an effort to remedy the need for
bocks in the Vancouver Juvenile Detention Home.
At the present time, there are no
library facilities for the young people
in the Detention Home, and they are,
fcr the most part, unfamiliar with
relatively good literature. Generally,
they read only allegedly lurid comics
and trashy pulp magazines, so it is
considered there is a very definite
and urgent need for any books or
magazines  which  can  be spared,
For the remainder of this week,
dure will be large boxes located in
various places on the campus in
which books may be deposited. Books
that would possibly appeal to children
belween the ages of seven and 18 are
needed. IFC suggests adventure and
travel  stories,   fairy   talcs and   novels.
A special pick-up service will be
provided lo collect books from those
having too many to bring to the
campus themselves, IFC officials report. All lhal is needed is the person's name and address on a plain
piece of paper deposited in one of the
boxes, which will be placed at the
bus stop, in the Cafeteria, and in the
iIty will be undertaken "just as soon
ipd as fast as possible," said Dr. Mackenzie, although this would mean
ising huts and crowded hospital facilities.
Three permanent buildings will
iventually be required, said President
.TacKenzie. They aro a building for
lacteriolcgy, preventive medicine,
nursing and health, a building for the
medical sciences, and a teaching hospital.
Tenders for the first of these buildings are expected to be called in
March, he said. Plans for the structure, which is expected to cost about
one and a half million dollars, have
been in preparation over the past
18 months.
However, it would be at least Uvo
'ears before the building was ready
'or use, Dr. MacKenzie warned.
Tlie medical sciences building will
:ost about the same amount, he said.
?)ans will be prepared after the first
Duilding has been begun, and construction v/ill probably require about
l.hree years.
Present arrangements for a teaching
lospital are that space will be made
ivailable in Vancouver hospitals.
However, these are inadequate, and it
;s estimated that more than 8 million
.tollars would be required to make
Vancouver General Hospital suitable
for the purpf-e, said Dr. MacKenzie.
Financing of the project woufc! be
up to tho Hospital Board, the City
Council and the Provincial Government. Dr. MacKenzie said it was unlikely facilities would bc available
in  less than  three  years.
First definite step toward creation of a permanent medical
faculty at UBC may he taken in March, President N. A. M.
MacKenzie told Pre-Medical students Friday.

Handsome Colonel
Wows Coeds But
Men Unimpressed
Is George "gorgeous" or
ain't he?
A poll of feminine opinion on
the campus reveals that Col,
George Drew left a profound
impression on UBC coeds.
The reputedly "handsomest man
in Canada" was rated from a fervid
"smooth" to a cool "I like them much
Of the lovelies interviewed, most
agreed with Gerry Denche that ''he
lives up to his name—gorgeous!"
Shirley Lynch said "I agree he's
thc most handsome man , . . out of
this  world".
"Very attractive . . . very smooth"
epinioned Lynn Marshall, "but nothing on  Johnson".
A note of partisanship might be
detected in Kay Brown of the Con-
seivative Club executive who called
him "very distinguished" (with a
French inflection.)
Rachel Brown shared the masculine
opinion, commenting ''Too old . . .
and what chance would I have with
hit,   wife?"
A chillier response came from Joe
Lotzar, evidently one of the few men
who looked at Mr. Drew, "To the
woman with her mind in the gay
nineties,   I  suppose  'yes'."

Saturday Night Criminals
A couple of thousand UBC students will
pack themselves into the Commodore, Cab-
aret this week, grimly determined to have a
good time. Many of (hem will display what
has become the badge of British Columbia
night life, the hip pocket bulge.
It will be perfectly legal to have one
cocktail or ten at the Commodore Cabaret
on Thursday or Friday night because the
Commodore will have magically become a
"private place" for UBC's Mardi Gras. But
under British Columbia's hoop-skirted liquor
laws the Commodore -will once more become
"public" on Saturday and the hip pocket
bulge will be a criminal offence.
In addition to its obvious inconsistency
with public thought and habit, B.C's liquor
legislation is particularly objectionable to
young  persons  of  university  ago   who  arc
lacing Iheir initiation to social drinking,
By i<s program of alcohol education in
high schools; British Columbia recognizes the
importance of an intelligent public approach
lo liquor and drinking. Then, in a magnificent
bit of muddle-headedness, British Columbia
forces its youth into back seal, pig sty drinking and its attendant vices.
Most UBC students don't take the milk
bottle to their dinner table, but they are
forced to take the liquor bottle to a night
club. They can't buy a drink, they have to
buy a drunk.
Education in alcohol cannot stop in high
school if young people are to develop an
honest, wholesome attitude towards liquor,
That wholesome attitude can be developed
only by stopping the sneaky, behind the barn
drinking which today's laws foster.
'Fatherly' Mr. Drew Makes A Hit
Although not all who listened to the easy,
pleasant words of George Drew Monday may
agree that he will be Canada's next Prime
Minister, few left Brock Hall with less than
profound respect for the new leader of the
, Progressive-Conservative party.
He left with his supporters new hope that
they will no longer be Canada's political poor
relation and convinced his opponents that the
Qpfies will no longer lanquish in doddering
A man for whom most people had lost
hope has just been elected president of the
United States largely because he mingled
with those who marked the ballots instead
of with those who marked the cheques.
George Drew lacks the "common touch"
so valuable on the political bustlings, but the
unique combination of his solid, fatherly air
and the charm of his wife give them both a
special niche in Canadian politics.

letters to tke editor
Editor, The  Daily  Ubyssey:   SiV—
I feel it is my duty to come Vo the
defence of Dr. Barnet Savery whose
momentous remarks on the Gordon
Martin ease were ridiculed by a
columnist who apparently had no
understanding ef its import and who
undoubtedly was entirely unfamil-
iai with Vhe "Rules of the Law
Society  of  British  Columbia,"
A person does nol need a Ph.D.
dei;ree nor does hc have to engage
in demagoguery to realize in the
j;os d Dr. Savory's solemn statement
--"they (the Benchers) could have
barred him ^Martin) for the color
of his eyes, or the color of his hair
." implications which somehow
escaped your undiscerning author
of "The Children's Hour".
I do not know the complete details of the Gordon Martin case.
However, I do know that up till
now there has been no Chinese,
no Japanese, no East Indian (Hindu,
Moslem, Sikh,) or North American
Indian who has been admitted to
the bar in B.C.
Was it because these people lacked
intelligence? Judging from • the
article which I was told was written
hy a law student (and which I pray
was an invalid criterion of his abilities), it wculd seem thai' intelligence should not be too much of an
Was it because these people were
Communists? The lack of support
lor such a revolutionary principle
would indicate that this was noV the
issue at stake.
Was it because of the color of
their eyes (which is generally
brown)? or the color of their hair
(which is generally black)? or the
color of their skin (which is generally somewhat darker)?
Surely, you say, men as intclli-
genv as most Benchers are assumed
to be, as well-educated as they undoubtedly must be, as solicitous over
the rights of his fellow man as they
appear to be, surely, you say again.
such men would never allow, much
It ss endorse such vicious, such
ridiculous', such odious and discriminating regulations,
But how otherwise can  Ihe deari'h
of   oriental   lawyers   he   explained?
'Note: The term Oriental includes
all British subjects and Canadian
chi/ens of Asiatic extractiin as well
as those born  in  the Orient).
Lawyers have popularly been inclined as artful and conniving individuals, justly or not. In one
case at least, their cunning manipulation of words has enabled them
t i enact "constitutional safeguards"
against undesirables (such as those
•a. itli certain color of eyes, hair and
tl;in) which even an experienced [ icmain,
L,w student---namely, your columnist—was unable to see through. He
says, quite wrongly:
iParenthesis  were  my  own).
Just, how far a person may stray
com the truth, I cannot imagine.
Ycur columnist certainly came close
to the limit. Even he, however,
may be excused because no unsuspecting person would .see any wrong
ir the regulation which limits enrolment in the profession of law
to those who, upon reaching the '
age ef 21 would be placed on the
piovineial voters' list.
Thc significance of this- innoccnt-
k ok ing regulation becomes evident
when you remember thai' before the
"Provincial Elections Act" was
amended in 1947, no Oriental was
allowed to vote. Hc therefore could
not become a  lawyer,
Wa.s this regulation intended to
discriminate against the Orientals?
Certainly so! It was no coincidence
that it was repealed shortly after
they (excluding the Japanese) were
granted  thc franchise.
In order to make ii' impossible in
the future for the Benchers or any
other body to bar applications for
what appears to your columnist, to
cur readers and to myself, as "silly"
reasons, it may be a good idea for
Dr. Savory to accept your columnist's suggestion and forward a resolution to the Provincial Legislature
with the provision that "no one shall
be refused admission to the Law
Society of B. C. by reason of the
eoler of his hair, or of his eyes, or
by any ether equally foolish reasons."
I, for one, would bc only too
pleased   to   sign   iv'.
A.  JOE.
Editor, Thc Daily Ubyssey: Sir-
After reading the Letters to the
Editor for the last three years in
silence, I have finally stirred myself from my blissful lethargy in
order to make a couple of observations, which you may take for whav'
they are worth,
First in regard to the Totem's drive
for subscriptions, one wonders whether students are withholding their
subscriptions fcr fear Chat they may
be too old to read it by the time
delivery  is made.
Secondly a word of congratulation upon the Film Society's Screen
Dance. Not only did it provide good

Someone gave me a very lovely umbrella for Christmas, an umbrella
ef a sedate green and brown plaid,
that exactly matches both my green
and brewn coats. I mistakenly
thought it was gotng i'o rain on
Friday, so brought it to UBC with
Die. How unfortunate that it did
not, and that I was not walking in
circles around the campus with my
biolley firmly held over my head
the whole day. How unfortunate
tiiat I decided to sit for a while at
noon in the Mildred Brock room,
trusting that my umbrella, safely
hidden beneath my coat, hung up
in the cloakroom (according to regulations one should not break), was
filched from its unoriginal hiding
place. It reminds me all too strongly
of two years ago when the very
same thing happened to a pair of
Even if cur local thieving epidemic
was partially halted recently, my
feelings arc just as hurt as if the
umbrella was ancient and disappeared five months ago. I suggest
that my umbrella should be returned forthwith; furthermore, I dare

the campus, Frcm new on I shall
inspect any umbrella I see and act
accordingly. I'm mad, see. Incidentally, it was the first time I
ever used the umbrella, or rather,
the first time I had ever taken it
out cf thc house with the intention
of  using  il

although we suppose that the heads of the
two most powerful governments on earth
wouldn't pay much at lent ton In whal a lew

help her bear ihe son of a German soldier who
might have been firing the shells. It didn't
mailer about the baby being illegitimate after
all, llioitgh. Both of them were killed about
two hours later.
'[''his Remembrance Day will no doubt
run according to form, Bul please, gentlemen,
t n all the plal forms in all the countries of the
world, clon'l lell us about the men who "gave
iheir lives." As far as anybody knows who
was in on the thing, nobody gave his life.
Most of them died reluctantly, clinging to life
a- long as they could, and fighting back the
pain. Some of them were cursing when they
died, and others were mercifully deadened
to both the physical pain and the spiritual
hopefulness by the drugs that modern science
has given us to help (he victims of modern
science to die quietly, without making too
much   luss.
And gentlemen, don't lell us that the
world i- si ill in danger, and that you know
lbat those ol us who are lell will make sure
that  lite d.eail didn't  die hi vain.
If die world is still in danger, gentlemen,
i!'-.   \sa\v   I'auh,   Yes,   voiuas.   The   fault   of  all
the men who continue to demand that their
personal views shall be defended by war.
Thc fault of the stupid, bumbling Baldwins
and Chamberlains and Trumans and Mackenzie Kings and all the Babbitts who mutter
about freedom. And the fault of the Stalins
and Vishinskys and Molotovs and all their
followers who also talk about freedom.
Neither side is willing to give an inch
on what it considers to be essential points.
Neither side has the faintest conception, of
what goes on in the minds of the other, And
neither side apparently cares.
Both the United States and the Soviet
Union are engaged in the greatest expansion
in history. Both are convinced—or rather,
both sets of leaders are convinced—that unless their system prevails, the world is doomed. The Russians are working through parties
established in every country trying to get
the rest of the world to follow their line. And
the Americans are holding up a glittering
bait, in one hand and a red bogey in Ihe
other, trying to get the rest of the world lo
loliow their line.
In Eastern Europe, the descendants of
Mendelssohn are listening to proletarian
music, whatever that i.s, and throwing over-
beard   iheir  own  culture   for  a  standardized
product made in Moscow. In Western Europe,
the descendants of Jean-Jacques Rousseau
and Victor Hugo are chewing gum, listening to
be-bop, and forming chambers of commerce.
Does it not occur to you, the members of
the two new master races that are competing
for the tattered mantle of the Herrenvolk,
that the rest of us might like just to be let
alone? That, just possibly the world could
get along if both of you would, realize that
you have no divinely appointed mission to
rule? That, also just possibly, the average
American or Russian would rather stay home
on the farm than "give his life" for intolerance?
Right now, instead of trying to halt expansion, both the United States and Russia
seem mainly occupied with trying to fix the
blame for the situation on each other. And
the longer this keeps up, the harder it will
be to stop the expansion. Why not admit
that you're both to blame? And then start
some negotiations in which he words "fault",
"blame," "right" and "wrong" shall be barred
in favor of "peace" and "practicability?"
At least, gentlemen, if you get down from
your platforms at 11:02 a.m. to hurry back
to power politics, don't expect us to like it,
or vou.

Noted Newsman's Words
Preserved By Library
The familiar complaint of all newspapermen, that the words
they write today are subsequently used to wrap around tomorrow's garbage, doesn't hold true for George Ferguson,
editor of the Montreal Star.
Two lectures delivered by Mr, Ferguson at UBC last
week will be preserved for posterity in the campus Library in
pamphlet form.
He was sponsored by t'he Canadian
Club of Vancouver.
Subject of Mr, Ferguson's lecture,
Thursday, was "A Free and Responsible Press". By trial and error printers gradually learned the "kind of
stuff that people like to read", he
stated, and that is what they are
liable i'o print, for they arc in the
business to make a profit. Later the
notion of public responsibility developed,
Mr. Ferguson strongly favors a free
press and stated that he considered
the worst paper published under ihe
Worst' conditions of free prc-s heller
than   Ihe   he  t   paper   published   under
the best conditions of state control.
Mr, Ferguson requoted a representative to the Geneva Conference last
March to best express his idea of the
purpose of a newspaper; "To seek
truth without prejudice and to spread
knowledge without malicious intent."
The topic of his lecture Friday was
"The Rights and Responsibilities of
Citizenship". It was the advent of
Ihe plainsmen, immigrants who were
neither British nor French, who helped to merge the differences represented by these two distinct cultures,

Next Tuesday a debate will be held
in connection with "Religion and Life

wilh particular regard to the recent
arrests of Cardinal Mincett'i and otliei
religious dignitaries in Communist
countries. The speakers have not
been announced yet but it i.s expected
that olio will be a member of the

Birds In Important Wins Saturday
First Tally
Bill Dunbar
Scores Try
Ruggermen Down Crimson Tide
By Tremendous 22-0 Count
Revenge, the motive for the more than a few murders,
was achieved in full by Coach Albert Laithwaite and his rugby
playing Thunderbirds on Saturday as the students made their
debut into 1949 McKechnie Cup play by trouncing the Victoria
Crimson Tide by a lopsided 22-0 count.
Just about this time last year tho«>	
'Birds suffered their first defeat in
many a season when the Tide decis-
ioned them by a close 7-6 count and
nobody, especially Laithwaite, ever
forgot the incident.
As a matter of fact, Albert passed
around clippings of last year's game
on the way over to Victoria just to
make good and sure that everyone
remembered the affair.
Whether it was the clippings or not
the 'Birds lost little time in setting
up their first tally once the game got
underway. The UBC scrum moved tlie
play up to the Tide's 10-yard line
shortly after the opening whistle
sounded and then on the next play
fleety Stan Clarke grabbed up the
loose ball and scampered the remaining distance.
Hilary Wotherpsoon, individual
hero of the day, got the first of his
11 points by making the convert good
ai.d the count stood at 5-0 for the
That was just the signal for the
Blue and Gold crew, to start rolling
and from then on there was no stopping them.
Halfway through the first stanza
"Spoon" drew gasps from the crowd
and players alike as he booted home
a beautiful free kick from 35-yards
out and then just before the breather
made it one for the books by scoring
a try after a long run along the side
lines to make the count 11-0 for the
students at half time.
The second period was just more of
the same with Victoria coming close
on several occasions but always being
stopped by the determined UBC scrum
before they could do any damage.
On the other hand the collegians
went over three times more on trys
by Jack Armour, Junior Tennant and
Bill Dunbar with Wotherspoon making
one of the converts to give the 'Birds
a tremendous 22-0 edge before the
final whistle was sounded.
In a *preliminary game the Chiefs,
a second UBC team, helped the locals
to a clean sweep by downing Victoria
College 11-3.
A marvellous field goal by Ron
Williams halfway through the first
session started the scoring parade
and was followed minutes later when
Don Nesbit went over for a try, to
give the locals a 6-Q lead.
Starry newcomer to the UBC fold,
Jack Nelson, notched final Blue and
Gold tally of the period on a three-
line play and when Bob Croll had
made the convert good the Chiefs
,vere out in front 11-0.
* Just before the halftime breather
the islanders made their lone score
of the day when their scrum pushed
Pete Powell over for a try. However,
the convert was missed and at the
whistle UBC was out in front 11-3.
, The second period was just as dull
as the first was interesting as neither
side was able to set up a scoring play
despite repeated attempts particularly
by the locals.
The only cloud on the UBC horizon
was tlie injury to linesman Ron Grant
who was carried from the field on a
stretcher after suffering a bad knee
Tlie re were a lot of people happy
about the Thundei'bbircls shcl'acking
cf the Victoria Crimson Tide Saturday in the island city, but perhaps
the gayest of the mall was the 'Birds'
veteran fullback Bill Dunbar who
scored the students' final try of
the day.
The reason for his elation, a.s Bill
himself put it, was "that this was
the first time in my life I've ever
scored points. I have been playing
rugby for almost 10 years now but
up till now had never made a tally.''
Dunbar made the try on a play that
thc 'Birds have been practicing for
a long time but never had a chance
to  use before.
The lack of scoring on Bill's part
has not been due to any lack of
skill, since he has won his Big Block
a number of times, but to Vhe fact
that in the rugby set up the fullback
always plays well in the rear as a
last line of defence rather than as an
offensive   player.

Cagers Down Whitworth 53-51
For First Conference Win
UBC's Thunderbird basketball team broke into the win
column for the first time in Evergreen Conference play this
year, as they ducked under the wire for a close 53-51 win over

Join In Hunt
For Lost Jet
Six members of the Varsity Outdoor Club took a turn for the practical
on Sunday when they enlisted their
aid in a search for the Jet plane
missing among the North Shore
Having seen the plane disappear
among the hills, , and later hearing
news that a plane, fitting the desc-
r'ption of the one they had seen drop
from sight earlier, was lost, the six
boys decided to join the official
search party.

C4-47 score,
Il was the Birds on Saturday night
that started to stall ^he ball around

not their opponents as in the previous
night's tussle.
And it was also a different crowd
Friday night, i'he eager hoop fans
booed the Savages lustily when they
began their stall with six minutes of
r.'ay still to go, with loud shouts of
"Chicken" and "Sissy",
Saturday night, there was only loud
laughter for 'the partially frustrated
opponents as they tried to take the
ball away from the Birds, and1 almost'

The Savages put on. a good stall.
And we defy anyone to show us that
it was not good basketball. They
Ltalled for six long minutes. Saturday nighi', the Birds almost lost their
game with  their "stall" play.
When the Pirates did get the ball
Saturday, they got three big points,
and almost got a couple more wil'h

When the Birds got the ball Friday,
two of their biggest boys stood o/i
either side of thc bucket* and threw
Vhe ball "over" the hoop, not down
through. Why boo a stall?
Otherwise the game went per usual,
as the scant crowd out for both affairs
will  tell you.
The ball handling in the Bird offensive zone left a lot to bc desired. Il
was sloppy, rushed, and sunk to high
school levels at times. In the defensive area, the inability of the team
to snag 'loose balls counted for all
too many points,
