Peace Council Petition
Asks Ban Of Atom Bomb
UBC's newly-formed Peace Council has obtained permission to circulate a petition here February 13 pertaining to the
banning of the atomic bomb and control of atomic energy.
The petition will ask for:  (1) the*-
banning of the atomic bomb; (2) strict
international control of atomic energy
and (3) the Investigation of means
for utilizing atomic energy for peaceful uses.
After a sufficient number of signatures have been obtained the petition
will be forwarded to Prime Minister
Louis St. Laurent in the hope that
it will be presented by the Canadian
government at the United Nations.
Opposing the petition, Coordinator
of AMS Activities George Cumming,
was of the opinion that the name
of the Peace Council and the petition
would become representative of the
university.
Council passed the motion to allow
tho group to circulate the petition
when they were assured that the
Peare Council would circulate it in
their name.

The problem of education boils down to how we are going
to establish and maintain a peaceful world.
The present international emergency is making it necessary to specialize education along a path of peace.
This  is   the  opinion   of  Dr.  Eade^
Birney, professor of English, who
addressed the CCF Club yesterday
on the topic: "Education—for what?"
Mental realism, "a dash of obstinate
hope," and self honesty are needed
to face problems of the modern
world, according to Professor Birney.
Because of the threat of the atomic
bomb, "we should be feverishly concentrating on the social sciences."
ENERY WASTED %
He thought much of the energy of
atomic physicists was wasted, and
more engineers were being trained
than would find employment.
It is short sighted, he said, to allow
people to concentrate their energies
developing atomic bombs. "Men and
their wavs should he studied fo be
able to get along together. Then we ; health of the people.
won't   drop   atomic   bombs  on   each
other."
"We need to learn about Russia,
democracy, the history cf political
parties, thinking processes, and the
mechanics of world government. We
need  a   certain  ethical  code."
He   stressed   the   need   to   become
international-minded,    which   is   the
only solution  to world  problems.
VSE BOMB AGACT
He said it was false to assume
the United States would not use the
atomic bomb again. "The country to
fear i.s not Russia but the United
States. It was twice used by her
without apologies."
Referring to atomic experimentation,
he said that experiment with the
atomic   bomb   is   dangerous   to   the
Members of the class of Sociology
575—thirty-four in all—have requested
that itheir AMS fees toe refunded.
The post-graduate students are Social Work supervisors of service organizations in downtown Vancouver,
such as Gordon and Alexander Houses. "Wc never set foot on the campus,"
they claim. Instruction is in the nature of an extension course, given at
night.
The students pay the usual registration and building fees, but are of
the opinion ithat they are not in a
position to derive any benefit from
their contribution to the Alma Mater
Society.
A motion was passed at Monday
night's Council meeting to refund their
fees.
Sociology 575 is a seminar, described
in the calendar as follows: "Discussion
centering on the psychological factors
in the supervisory situation, the educational aspects of spervision, and
the handling of evaluations and individual and group conferences."

One of the local city papers has, for the
Seoond time in less than two weeks, taken a
swipe at UBC. These and other subtle inferences achieve two things. A question is
created in the minds of the natives as to the
calibre and quality of the students and the
University, and those of the latter group who

these suggestion!.   :
Such editorial comment proves very little.
But aren't we used to it? A two-bit snake
parade through the streets of Vancouver
draws headlines here. Yet other cities which
are fortunate enough to have Universities
only take passing notice of the same3 thing.
A glance at the record of this school will

An Untimely Deal
The university lost a fine teacher and a
good friend this week with the untimely
death of -Slavonic Studies Professor Joseph
j^ymond.
y-y.-j&JMfator Raymond won fame for his
scholarly work on Lithuanian culture and
language but it is as. a teacher rather than as
• scholar that he will be missed.
fo him a language was much more than
■r* ?<*■«■
Once upon a time, kiddies, there was a
smiling young man who got a job with the
Student Council at a large western university. He was a nice young man and did a very
good job in his important position.
But he was possessed by a devil. It didn't
show very much until the devil prompted
him to hire two bands for one dance. This
)ed to some confusion, but the devil, who was
quite clever, explained the untoward incident
to intersted parties in such a glib manner that
everyone was satisfied, and remarked:
"My, What a nice young man!"
Things went along very well until a short
time alter Christmas, when the devil, who
wis getting bored, prompted the young man
to hire two bands for another dance, when
only- one band was needed; There was a
mild.furor, which the devil with an eye to
the future, explained away very neatly and
everyone was satisfied. The young man, how-
evr> was a little worried, as he never knew
when the devil would take over and make
things hot for him. And if the devil ever took
over without afterwards explaining (through
the lips of the young man, of course) the
young man would be left holding the proverbial satchel.
The devil, however, had great ideas. He
saw that the young man was such a nice
young man that people readily forgave him
for his misdemeanors, and he wondered how
far he could push the gag before the nice
young man committed suicide, had him ex-
corcized, or went mad.
"Yuk! Yuk!" chortled the devil, "It's a
natural."
One day there was another dance announced. The young man was given the job
of getting the orchestra to play at the dance.
The devil took over the moment the young
man's hand reached for the telephone, and
remained in control until the whole preposterous affair was over.
The night of the dance there were more
musicians than dancers present. The devil had
ordered fourteen bands, including a cowboy
Orchestra, two Hawaiian groups, and two
L^KVnba bands. There was also a small con-
orchestra included, just for laughs.
k   V comes the funny bit. The musicians,
Pride
recognized and appreciated. ,But not in Vancouver.
And yet of all the organizations in the
city none spread its name farther or wider
than does the University. Our teams, our
debators, our conference delegates, our publications and our graduates continually carry
the name.
During the last year this University,
situated for all practical purposes in Vancouver, has made the CBC national and
international news more than half a dozen
times. Can any other organization, except
the weather office, make a better claim,
The press, the natives, and the organizations in Vancouver would we well advised
to realize that the University is here to stay.
Instead of belittling, and berating the school,
some advice, some assistance and some recognition would be in order.

union men all, stood upon their constitutional
rights and insisted on performing.
"We were hired and we will play," they
shouted in unison, making the welkin ring
with the clear tone that is characteristic of
welkins. N
They procured extra chairs, fifty-seven
of them, and arranged themselves in their
respective groups all over the dance floor.
They made an awful noise, and the people
who found space to dance soon went home.
They wete very cross.
The young man just stood in the corner
going "Yuk! Yuk!"
The next day the papers were full of it,
and newsboys were shouting the news up
and down the city streets.
"He does it again!" they shouted.
The university was in an uproar. The
Alma Mater Society called a special meeting
and summoned the unfortunate young man
to its presence. The president of the university was there, too, and so was the head of
the Musicians Union, Local 4-no matter, he
was hopping mad anyway.
The young man entered the council-room.
He was bewildered. The devil had had his
fun and had flown the coop. The young man
was on his own; no smooth-talking devil was
around to toss the incident off with a smooth
explanation and a careless laugh.
"Young man!" thundered the president,
why did you do it? Why?" He pointed a
finger at the dejected figure before htfo,
"Why?"
A hush stole o\'ev those present. Every
eye was riveted on the small, unhappy young
"Why?" The imperious voice demanded
again.
The young man faced his inquisitors.
Proud, erect, defiant, he brushed a tear from
his eye. In rather a squeaky voice, after two
ineffectual attempts to clear his throat, he
"You see, sir, I'm very fond of music!"
And witnesses firmly maintain that at
that precise moment, a small grating voice,
coming from a point near the rafters, went
"Yuk! Yuk!"
As the harp concert drew to a close,
great waves of enthusiastic applause
thanked the exhausted Soloist. Many
were surprised that they had been so
moved by such an effemlnite instrument ae the harp. The university
students, flushed with the excitement
of the performance, grouped quickly
around the professional musician who
lectured in Music at tiie' university.
"What did you think of it?" they
ask. The muscian replies, "There's
no dbubt about it, that harpist is a
genius. I was partloulary impressed
by the manner in which she varied
the rhythms of her arpeggios."
The students know what they think
of the performance now. They all go
home. The n«Wt' day, over coffee
cups, between lectures, at crossways
on the campus, you can hear them at
it: "Oh, don't tell me you missed the
harpist last night. My dear, she was
simply wonderful. I was iterrlbry impressed by the things she could do
wilith arpeggios."
Sf> ^ wf»
The English lit. professor was hand
ing back the essays. "Everyone pass-
ted," she announced, with a sense of
pride in her class.
"I'd like to tell eyou a funny story,"
she said. "Four years ago, one of my
students turned in a very good essay.
He seemed' to have understood Marlowe's play perfectly. However, when
I talked to him later about Marlowe,
he let slip several glaring errors.
It turned out that he got all his criticisms from books—he'd taken the
trouble to read a good dozen of them—
but he hadn't read one single Marlowe play."
Everyone in tiie class laughed. It
was a self-conscious, nervous laugh-
almost too spontaneous.
l"he professor laughed  too—at her
own story. Why, ro one could fool
her and get away with it.

A young girl from Lebanon had
come to Canada recently, and was
living in Vancouver. She met a university intellectual at the Public Library, and he invited her to a soiree
in his flat. He hoped to amuse his
regular guests, who assembled there
each week to exchange and search for
new experiences.
At the soiree, they asked her if
she had read any of the poems of
the Lebanese mystic, Kahlil Gibran.
"Yes, of course I have," she said. "They
make my heart sing."
"But what do you think of them?"
they asked. Although she knew many
of them by heart, she could only repeat, "They make my heart sing."
The conversation quickly turned
from the girl. Gibran had been the
subject of several lengthy criticisms in
the more avant-garde literary journals, and the intellectuals, each adopting the viewpoint of the criticism
he'd read, argued the subject for Several hours. Ih the end they dismissed
the poet as "too saccarine," and "will
have no permanent influence."
Poor girl! Walking home alone* that
night, she felt miles away from a real
appreciation of Gibran. It had never
occured to her that these clever people
had read not one line of the poetry
they discussed.
Letters to
Moists and Man
EDITOR,
THE  UBYSSEY,
Dear Sir:     •
From the comment upon "Masses
and Man," printed in this paper it
appears that wh:li to me is the basic
significance of this play has passed
unnoticed. Your drama critic waxed
eloquent, aa d'd your editorial, on
the theatrical excellence of tiie performance, and the stldulus to university drama that the play provided,
indeed, and with reason. But one
might go beyond this View, to point
out its greater significance, which is
pei'haps not so apparcr.'; to .he mere
"critic or drama," who is inclined to
regard the theatre'and a play as an
end in itself. Clearly, this play was far
more than that. It was the means of
expression of a philosopher, rather
than the technical achievement of a
playwright.
Of this play the "end" was perhaps
suggested in the program, " . . . Io
mrke a contribution to 'iho UNESCO
appeal for plays with "Peace" as their
theme." The constitution of UNESCO
opsns with the declaration that "Since
it is in the minds of men that war
be fins, it is in the minds of men that
tho defences of peace must be con-
stiucted." To ttalk peace, to think
peace and to live peace individually,
as was recently suggested by Pierre
Vfin Passen, this was thc end to which
tho philosophical torment of EVnst
Teller was directed. Would 'that a
drama critic could t'e a greater
critic of ideas, rather than an exponent of theatrictl Itechnlque.
I know that I was dismayed at the
transitory nature of the presentation,
the dreadful feeling at the curtain
that those awe-inspiring morrietits
were gone beyond recall. In conclusion
'theh I would urge that this play be
presented again, so that ail who did
ret hear this loud cry of a man for
Peace, might have the opportunity
to grasp its vital metesage. To whom
should the congratulation be chiefly
extended-to the enlightened director or to UNESCO?
Yours ainlerely,
Michael Hind-Smith,
United Nations Club.

THE EDITOR,
THIS UBYSSEY,
Dear Sir:
With its customary aversion to publishing the truth, The Ubyssey has refused to priftt' a retraction of the
misimpressions It conveyed In its story
dn the orchestra bookings for tho
Farmers' Frolic.
The truth of the matter is this: at
the firtt of thir term, In order to
avoid complications with duplicate
bookings, I booked orchestras for the
remainder of the year and advised
the organiza'tiar.8 concerned. The Aggies, then, knew of this around the
middle of January, but for reasons
best known to themselves they went
ahead to arrange for another orchestra
Without letting anybody know. Having commit teed themselves to another
band, ism, Paton, president of the Aggie Undergrad phoned me on Friday,
January 2?th, to inform me of their
plans. On Saturday the 2$ih, I wrote
Keith Watson, leader of the orchestra
which I had previously booked, to
cancel the arrangements.
I trust this clears up the confusion
that has existed.
Yours sincerely,
George S  Cummings.

I wish to draw the attention of my
fellow Students to the declining moral
standard of the plays produced by the
Players Club. In 1947 Mr. E. Perrault's
"Let Sleeping Dogs Lie," in 1948 Noel
Coward's vulgar and trivial "Red
Poppers," in 1949 Mr. Gerald Newman's

Mollere play better left in obscurity,
have, in combination, created a pattern which should be considered by
tboughful people. What is worse than
all this is the knowledge we have that
the decaying green room is presenting
J. B. Priestley's new play "An Inspector Calls," as its usual questionable piece de resistance'.
I do not speak for myself alone when
1 suggest a rigid staff controlled censorship of student fine arts activities.
Not enly the Players Club but also
the Musical Society and such other
student activities as the Thunderbird
—(a dirty, cheap exhibition of perverted adolescence)—and the Daily
Ubyssey should be under constant
staff surveillance. In all these groups,
dramatic, musical, literary and Journalistic, we find to qudte Bernard
Shaw, "nasty minds revelling in nasty
matter in direct proportion to their
nastiness."
There are good, healthy, uplifting
plays. But does the Players Club
consider them! No. They select one
that can only be described as" a
beauty of thought or expression, no
grand moral design, no opportunity
lost to obscene sniping filt only for
a Gingold vaudeville show; all these
a disappointed student audience will
fird in abundace in "An Inspector
Calls."
E'csides the subversive pornography
in Priestley's play, there is another
aspect of it which 1 submit for inspection. Pri'estley is, as everyone
knows, a notorious socialist, and, as
everyone knows, that is but one step
removed from being a communist. Are
we to be the paying dupes for obscene communist propaganda? Cannot
the president and staff stop this
childish escapisft nonsense before the
Players Club makes an even greater
spectacle of itself than It has before
now?
Youro truly,
J. R. Sykes.

used during the study in markman-
ship, H. Sampson, of the psychology
department, who is In charge of the
experiment, told the Ubyssey.
All that is wanted is for students
to come along and fire a few rounds
to see what they can do with this
experimental rifle, he said.
Individuals interested are asked to
drop a note to H. Sampson, Psychology
Laboratory, New Engineering Building, Campus. In the note they are
requested to give the following information: name, address, and tele-
phono number, and the dates and
times the student will be available.
Three consecutive, days are desirable, Sampson stated, as ten rounds
will be fired by each person on each
of these days.
The following times are suggested
for the various days: Monday • 10:30

besides the students. Pittsburghers
have recently expressed their wants
in radio fare by means of letter* to
the local newspapers. Mature, thoughtful and thought-provoking material is
desired by the most consistent daytime
radio listener—tiie housewife.
Efforts will) be made to beep the
programs on a mature level. •
Four remote pickup points for on-
-the-spot broadcasting of special event
will be installed along with the transmitting equipment. These will be tiie
cafeteria, the music school building,
the chapel, and the student lounge.
The entire radio setup will be student operated. Although positions on
the production, staff of the station
will be open to all students in the
university, it Is expected that students
of journalism will bear the brunt of
the script-writing duties because of
their specialized training in the subject.
Reception of programs will be good
up to ten miles. Under perfect conditions programs should be heard as
far away as 20 miles. These estimates
give a potential audience of about
100,000 persons and the new station
will be in competition for the listener's ear with all the local AM and
FM commercial stations and even with
television.
The station's greatest appeal will be
the absence of commercial advertising
that plague commercial stations.
An article in "Duqesme", the university uagazlne says: "The dissemination of education by radio is being
successfully accomplished in many college and university communities
throughout the country. US Institutions of learning pioneered many
of the standard practices dn radio

lt'»U»y
ing
Preferential balloting in Wednesday's presidential election
dismayed most students on the
campus. Because of this, there
were 25 spoiled ballots.
"You have to vote for every candidate," said chief Returning Officer,
Hugh Cameron. "Votes must be recorded in preference of the candidate—first choice first, second marked two and so on.'*
"Most students mark them all Jn,"
said Cameron but added, "they don't
know why they mark them that way."
"Preferential balloting is just as
simple as civic voting and gives each
candidate a fairer chance," Cameron
explained. "Candidates are eliminated untU only one has the majority
of ballots.
"All the first choice votes are
counted at once. The candidate with
the fewest votes is dropped off the
list and all the second choice votes
are allotted to the respective candidates. One candidate is dropped off
on each count until one candidate
has the majority of the votes cast."
"Students don't know the trouble
they cause by only voting for one or
two candidates," said Cameron. "All
they have to remember is to make
a number by each candidate in the
order they would like to see them."

Burned Student
Paper on Black
Market at $1
Lest edition of La Rotonde, weekly

soon after il appeared last week.
The article which caused the ban
was as follcws: "Mr. Gerard Filion will
be invited to address the student
body at the beginning of February.
This decision was taken by the local
executive of the Canadian Federation
ot Catholic University Students during
a meeting held January 18. Mr. Gerard Filion, well-known editor of Le
Devoir, will speak in the social role
of the student. Well versed in the
study of the social sciences, Mr. Filion will certainly give the students
a   brilliant  and   interesting  address."
This announcement, a spokeman
for the Ottawa students declared, was
considered by the majority of the
students to' be "offensire
In a recent news story Le Devoir
declared that the rectar of the University of Ottawa "did not believe in
laughing when Le Devoir is concerned." The Montreal paper reported

Tho lecture entitled, "What is hap-

Yugoslavia?" was attended by 70 club
members.
In the hour lcog address, Bakic
traced Ti'to's rise to power in Yugo-
s'avia and outlined what he eon-
sirered to be tse intentions of the
Soviet countries.
The speaker pointed out that Tito's
present conflict with Moscow may
not be a real one and may prove, in
faclt, to be a Soviet scheme to get
money and aid from the United States
whidh in turn would be handled to
the Soviet Union.
Bakir said he could not understand
how the United States could send aid
when Tito is a known liar and murderer and has used UNNRA monies
alreaofy received for commn|hibttic
propaganda.
In concluding his bitter attack on
communism, the speaker traced the
course of Russian imperialism to
didfe, and emphasised the east-west
conflict which he considered inevitable. His attack was punctuated with
examples of communist atrocities that
he said he knew of personally.
In introducing Mr. Bakic, Grant
Campbell, IRC president, said Bakic
was a Yugoslav national who escaped
to Austria in 1945. From there the
speaker was brought to Canada as a
DP and he worked for a year in this
country before coming to UBC.
Bakic is a second year pre-med student at UBC.

'Birds Meet Pirates And
Savages In Weekend Tilt
By GIL GRAY
UBC's Thunderbird basketball team will have another
chance to climb out of their cherished cellar spot this weekend
when they meet the Pirates from Whitworth College.
Previous to the Friday night battle*
with Whitworth, the Birds had met
defeat at the hands of Pirates, but
only by a slight 63-64 score. Since
the game was played at Whitworth,
and since the Birds are reputedly a
conld-on-the-road, hot-at-home club,
this might be the weekend for the
Birds to win one,
The Whitworth club has some
fairly good material in two of their
forwards, Clyde Matters and Gordon
Brandt. Boys that boast about a ten
point game average so far this year.
PIRATES DROP
However, the Pirates would seem
to have dropped from their last year's
showing. In the 48-49 season, they
won 14 and lost 20. So far this season, they have won only 7 and lost
14.
But the ball club that will arrive
here on Saturday to play the Birds
is really going to be something to
watch. At present thc Eastern Wash-
son, the Savages have lost only one
game, having played seven. In the
first five of those games, two of
their boys, Burke and Eicher had
scoring averages of 17 and 13 points
per game respectively. A third player,
Dick Luft, who is a real playmaker
has an average of nine points per
game.
TOP TEAM
The chances of the Birds winning
the second game of this weekend's
series does not look any too good, but
if any of you fans want to see a
basketball team in action that is
really good, this will be the game
of  the season to watch.
For those of you worried about the
'E'irds playing a poor game, cton't.
It seems that when the Birds meet
a ball club that should be a push
over, they look like a bunch of
clowns, but when the opposition is
really   stiff,   they   go   positively   col-
ington  Savages   nre   roaring   through ; legiiite.
