Christians and
Communists Ask
CCF Speaker
Why are Christians attracted
to communism? That was one
of _ the questions asked Rev.
Frank Patterson, SCM Sec, at
a meeting of the CCF Club
"Communists have tended Vo oppose
the same social evils that Christians
oppose," said Patterson. However, he
went on to say that "A Christian will
soon be disillusioned when loyalty to
party and loyalty to God come into
Christians should not take sides in
the present struggle between East
and West, nor should they withdraw
from the world. Instead, according
to the S.C'.M. secretary, they should
act as a third force that will reconcile
the  opposed  ideologies,
Asked if the essence of Christianity
was not based on intolerance, he replied that it was, to the extent that
Christians dogmatically believe in
certain details and virtues. However,
he said that the Christian faith is
.tolerant of all political and social
The Rev, Mr, Patterson substituted
fcr Bert Gargrave, whip of the CCF
party in the Provincial Legislature.
Gargrave was unable to speak due
to his preoccupation with an arbitration board.
Mystery Money Goes
To General Fund Depths
Paul Plant AMS Treasurer has discovered a hundred  '
dollars tucked away in an obscure corner of a ledger,
At first Plant was at a loss to  explain the strange
phenomenon, as occurances like this are extremely rare
.   in an organization like Students' Council. Later, howeve^,
he discovered that it had been set aside several years ago
for the purpose of displaying historical films.
Council wasted no time in rushing through a resolution
to the effect that the one hundred dollars vanished im-
ediately into the murky depths of the general fund.

Senior Editor This Issue — ART WELSH
To Clear The Decks
(Jerry Macdonald, p«st president of UBC's literary
and scientific executive, ^rrcimred this yucst editimal
at the request oj The Daily Ubyssey to satumurizu the
stand o/ proponents of a business manager lor tlie Alma
Mater Society. Other special signed arlicles /rom sap- ,
porters of present policy and the formation of a student
finance board will folloio).
The question of a business manager is one
that has been consistently oppo'sed by incoming treasurers and consistently proposed by
retiring treasurers. During my own time at
UBC I know that this is true of Ken Creighton, Garry Miller, Don McRae and Bob Harwood, and I understand that Paul Plant is
of the same opinion this year.
I do not think that the student Finance
Board as proposed by the Investigation Committee last fall is the answer to the Society's
financial problems for the same reasons that
a single treasurer was not considered adequate. The proposed Board may satisfy the
continuity problem but it is! anything but
It is said that the students at UBC are
proud of their autonomy and that it stands
second to none in Canada. I believe this go.
But what are we proud of? Are we proud of
the fact that we can count our own nickels''
I think not. We are proud of the fact that we
have the autonomy required to go out on
campaigns and through them have built
another Gym. This is also the reason for our
good reputation abroad. Any move, that will
lift administration details from the shoulders
of our representatives and allow them more
time to plan and bring to fruition our student
campaigns and functions, is a desirable thing.
I suggest that this is the reason that the pro-
poed Gym is in the doldrums.
The second point expressed is that in time
the manager will know more than the council and will therefore be in a position to dictate to them. First, I don't, think that it is
'possible- to dictate to students at any time.
Second, it is not the manager that we fear
but our own lethargy, and it would seem
tli.it nn experienced man in the office might
not be .so bad. This, however, has not occurned
in the past and it is not likely in the future.
This question depends largely on the type
ol person that is selected and I think he can
he found. The manager will be hired on a
year to year basis and this i.s sufficient
guarantee for his g'ood conduct.
Thc third point (as Dave Williams pointed
out at the last general meeting) i«j that the
UBC Adminisration will take over our student
government. This is ridiculoos. We have our
autonomy by the permission of the Administration and they can take it away at any
time. But it may be safely stated that the Administration authorities would rather go to
hell than dabble in student government, that
is, unless a situation arose that would be detri
mental to the university as an institution. This
has always been recognized. Students do
things because they want to and can function
best only under their own leadership. As
long as we act in a mature manner we have
no fears from this quarter.
The idea of a business manager certainly
has its "bugs," but they are very minor and
can easily be ironed out in practice.
I believe that the society would be better
off if it employed a business manager. If one
is employed (and assuming the proper man)
I think that we may look forward to a period
of proper accounting of student funds and
proper merchandising of the goods that the
Alma Mater Society has for sale. Ditto purchasing, office routine, etc.
It's worth a fair trial in any ease.

The  Editor,   The   Daily   Ubyssey:
Sir—Well, rah rah for Rupert Ruddeli! His humour was a bright' spot
in a clay of sorrows. Hov/ever, it
would have been more effective had
his facts been more accurate.
First the announcement in the
Ubyssey was intended to recruit
stage crew members, not acting
members. There is a series of tryouts for acting members held each
fall, ,at which all comers are welcome to compete for membership,
which is a limited one of 75. Nbxt'
tall wc hope to see Mr. Ruddell's
happy smiling face appear at the
proper time. He will still be welcome—perhaps not quite as welcome
as he might have been last September,   bul'  still  welcome.
As to the unsavoury interview to
which dcai' Rupert was subjected,
1 am sure it might bc a misquote.
Surely my gestures and grimaces
were not of Academy Award calibre. As I remember it, my gestures
and grimaces were not up to my
usual standard when I was confronted by Rupert. And the accent!
I've been working on it for years,
but surely  it wasn't  that good.
And Rupert, if you are reading
this, I must warn you that the
''squeaky-voiced mi Ik-sop", who
had received the part of Sir Toby
Belch in competitive try-outs the
cay before our interview, is quite
annoyed. His baritone voice and
alcoholic capacity arc both matters
of great  pride  to  him.
But Rupert, don't give up hope.
After looking over the list ol your
dramatic qualifications, I am sure
thai there is a niche in the Hall of
Fame ready for you. Perhaps the
place for your peculiar talents is
nol so far away as you may think,
Why don't you apply for a part in
the Musical Society's forthcoming
production. Undoubtedly they
would be qharmed.
Yours for bigger and better Letters   to   the  Editor.
The  Poor   Man's   Olivier,
Editor. The Daily Ubyssey Sir-
In reference to Wednesday's report
'■v The Daily Ubyssey concerning
the poor response of UBC students
lo plea for aid to under-nourished
people in Berlin. I would like to
point out that I know of several
students who, on reading Arthur
Krause's letter were moved to action immediately and sent their $10
directly'to CARE,
I   would   like   to   know   how   the
AMS   has   any   way   of   checking
these   contributions.
Editor. The, Daily Ubyssey: Sir—
The Standard Oil Company is currently advertising widely a letter
vrilten by Professor R, A. Mahoney. of thc University of British
It seems obvious (hat the Company is not interested in Professor
Mahoney's statement as the statement of an individual, fcr it apparently feels that the public would
not bc much affected by his unimpressive argument. Bul thc Standard Oil Company is very anxious
to create the impression that thc
letter of Professor Mahoney, who
introduces himself as a Professor
of Commerce at UBC. represents an
approval by the University of the
Company's case,
It is regrettable that Professor
Mahoney lias permitted the Standard Oil Company to avail itself, in
its costly advertising campaign, of
this false inference, He has jeopardized the prestige of the University,
which is the concern of both faculty
and students, and in so doing, he
has been guilty of an exhibition of
supremely  bad  taste.

Indeed, just like my own.
For instance, when he kicks the cat,

Now, does he simply say "tut-tut"!!
That's what I'd like to know.
Well,    now    that   this   is   "off   roy

It seems to me, though, thai people go
to university for one of five reasons:
1. To make the world a heller place in
which to live;
2. To make ihe world a more comfortable place in which to live  (Engineers);
3. To make room for aesthetic experience;
4. To make money;
5. To make merry (if you'll pardon the
All of which brings me to a point. My

sink to the levels of common sense; to see
ideals that are fine and good .swept away in
the lide of orgiastic revelry, the memory of
il. is really quite loo horrible to contemplate.
Roland and I, forced to adopt a superficial friendliness in the season of the bourgeois myth of Christmas, accepted an invitation to drop in at the home of a mutual
friend, as is the common custom. Weighing
the thing philosophically we swallowed our
intellectual pride (after all, they were fellow

was an alcoholic drink. It was about thi.s
time that my disillusionment began. In quick
succession, Roland consumed two more ol
these loathsome concoctions, with apparently
little urging and then, at the invitation of
hc host to "catch up," disappeared into the
After what, seemed to be an eon of time,
during which I was forced to listen to a chap
bleating about his holiday bonus, Roland
emerged from the kitchen wearing the hostess' hat and a ghastly leer.
"I found it, ok kid, ol' kid," he shouted
in my face, "I foun' what I'm searching for."
Turning my face to avoid the  fumes,  I
was .shaken beyond words. "You found what,
Roland,"   I   said,   trying   to   hide   the   awful
■wound  in  my heart,
"Right here i nthis li'l ol' bottle, it was

The inner hurl thai was gnawing at mo

"Roland,   .somehow    1    would    nol    have

"Mind, shmind.".

". i . your ideals. How could you do this
awful thing?" Wilh these words I clutched
al my bosom as a wave of nausea swept over
my  whole  being.
"What you need i.s a li'l drink," said
Roland, ignoring my plea, and placed the
beastly slulf in my hand. "Yessir, right there
in that li'l ol' bottle. Good fcr vvhadails ya."
I made one more valiant effort.
"Roland, remember Keats. We read "The

Begging a nasty pardon I hurriedly left
with this incredible outburst. To see the rapid
disintegration of all that i.s fine is to die a
little. Alone and unaided I shall go on with
the quest, ever seeking, ever searching , , .
until next Yuletide, anyway. Maybe, Roland
was right. I'll never forget thc look of joy
on his laoe as he raised his glass on high
when I left. Looking at the color reflected

For the past five years the Thunderbird Rugby squad has made a
series of wins that have yet to be
rivalled by any provincial team.
In the years preceding 1944 they
had been hot and cold, sometimes
rising to dizzy heights, as in 1937,
when they swept up every trophy
available; and sometimes taking a
nose dive, as in '41, when they failed
to, win a single game.
Since their triumph five years ago,
the senior squad has won consistently. Tlie Tisdale, Miller and McKechnie cups have all remained in
their hands.
Shows Promise
This year the squad shows promise of being another "wonder team".
They can boast of not having lost
a game, In fact their goal line has
never been crossed by a ball carrier.
i Last term they cleaned up the
Miller Cup with very little trouble,
despite the fact that many of then-
star players had gone over to American Football. In the final tilt of the
season they subjected t'he highly-
rated North Shore All-Blacks to a
13-0 shutout.
At the present time Al Laithwaite*
'has so many rugby stars on his
hfcnds that he is faced with a problem of how to pick a team. He has
faced, this problem however, and
come up with something out of this
world. When upon looking at the
list of players I see that Roid and
Story are listed as spares. It is reasonable i'o assume that the team
itself is something out of the ordinary,
Hough - Tough
The Victoria squad promises to be
rough and tough but it seems very
probable that the 'Birds will have
.very little trouble.
UBC, the second string student
squad, will also be making the pilgrimage to the capital city this Saturday. They are rated very nearly
as high as the first squad, and Victoria College should prove to be
easy pickings.
They had a streak of bad luck
last term but now with their tanks
bolstered by several of the returned football stars they will be shooting for the coveted Tisdale Cup.
Rugby officials will make no definite comment on the proposed Stanford and University of California
games. They do however, seem
slightly optimistic about the possibility of the games being played.

Pub Garners 21st Hoop Victory
Sportswriters Spark Pub Machine
To Decisive Win Over Council
The Student Councillors of UBC dragged battered bodies
back to their offices ruefully plotting revenge for yesterday's1
devastating defeat at the hands of the Publications Board staff
in the 21st renewal of the annual basketball game between the
perpetually warring factions. Score in games won and lost
through the years stands at: Council 4, Pubsters 6.

HERO TO THE RESCUE is the theme of this picture taken at yesterday's Pub-Council basket-
hall game as Editor-in-Chief Ron Haggart rushes to the aid of an unidentified pubster who's
arm is being cruelly twisted by AMS president Dave Brousson. Such tactics were typical of the
kicking, biting, scratching methods of the councillors but were of little avail as the Pubsters
Before a packed gymnasium
McMillan's combo ruefully played
"Taps" for the bedraggled councillors,
as the victorious Pubsters gave a very
sportsmanlike cheer for the vanquished, despite the solons typically backhanded type of play.
The issue was never in doubt, although it took a last second combination of sportswriters to put the game-
away for the scribes.
With the score tied and seconds
remaining, big Dave Brousson hurtled
hi,'1 300 pounds down the centre of
the court but Doug Murray-Allan
brought him to his knees with a bone-
crushing tackle, The thoroughly-
shaken Brousson dropped the ball
and Chuck Marshall scooped it up,
dashed around end for five yards be-
fcie rifling a pass to Fred Moonen,
who whirled at centre and dropped
a beautiful one-hander through the
hoop just as the buzzer sounded to
end the game, leaving the score 6-4
for the newspaper men, (and ladies,
although the council women conducted themselves in anything but
lady-like fashion).
The pageantry of the pre-game
ceremonies was supplied entirely by
the Publications Board as their trained staff of war correspondents in
trench-coats and, slouch hats, performed a typically-military march
past, before depositing knives, bottles
and fire-arms in front of their bench.

cauon on Friday night, and then will
meet the Pirates of Whitworth College
.Saturday night. Both games are to be
played in the U'BC gym and scheduled
to start at 8:00.
The Savages placed second in the
basketball loop of the WINCO league
kist year, right behind Pacific Lutheran, who will meet the 'Birds at
Parkland^   Washington,   January   21.
In pre-season games, the EWCE
quintet appears to have a slight edge
ever thc 'Birds. While the 'Birds lost
both'of their games against the Seattle University Chieftains, by scores of
."9-47, and 66-59, the Savages split
Iheir series with a 45-33 win on their
home courts, and then a 55-48 loss at
the Seattle gym.
From the experience point of view,
ilie Savages also can only produce a
young, quite inexperienced aggregation. Average height of the Savage
first string is 6'1'V
One of the most prominent men on
tlie EWCE roster is Dick "Putter"
Luft, is a 614" guard who is one of
the two returning men from last year's
Coach of the Eastern Washington
Savages is Bill "Red" Reese. In the
la years as head coach at Eastern
Wash.. Red ha.s taken the WINCO
flag nine times, and look championship teams back to the National
Tournament at Kansas City three

On Saturday night the 'Birds meet
Whitworth College which boasts 18
wins and 16 losses in last year's series,
and has won five* and lost six so far
this  year.
Coach Slannard, who ha.s a .splendid

Whitworth since 1034.

Obviously the Councillors were in
mcrtal terror even before the game
started, as they slunk into the gymnasium by the ladies' entrance. However, in sheer desperation, they turned to every foul trick in their book,
and judging from their reputations
and the fact that referee Lome
Glendenning left the fray minus orte
of his teeth proves the old saying
that law-makers will take the gold
out of your uppers if not closely
The pubsters' shooting was as accurate as their news presentation,
with Vhe result that in the numerous
foul shots awarded against the solons
the winners had a resounding 98 percent  average.
Chick Turner, anti-Social Coordinator, displayed an amazing desire for
open-field blocking, with the result
that he should have been whistled
off t'he floor on fouls, but one of the
referees, Ole Bakken, was being
bribed by offers of new office furniture, and Turner continued his dirty
tactics until the end of the game.
The outstanding player on the floor
was Councillor Nancy Davidson,
whose screams emanated from beneath a pile of bodies near the council bench. As no pubster was near
at the time, we must conclude that
the legislators were carrying on a
regular meeting of the AMS executive.
