Ewing In, Out Again
Haar Makes Fiexy
Race Five Way Fight
Walt Ewing'* hasty withdrawal from Alma Mater Society's
running left it as a five way race at 5 o'clock yesterday. John
Tennant played a similar hide-and-seek game with the elections
committee, dropping out of the treasurer's fight and leaving
two other candidates' names on the ballot.
*   #
Those still campaigning for position of president are John
Haar, Foster Isherwood, Peter deVooght, Bill Haggert, and
Charlie Walker. John MacKinnon and Bob Currie remain in
treasurer's contest.
Swing's effort was uncovered as a gag to force more students to take an interest in the treasurer's position which he
has held for the past year. He ripped down his nomination sheet
seconds before deadline.
Latest presidential contestant to appear as a nominee was
John Haar, present dhairman of Canadian Legion University
Elections Committee meeting was held to decide on the
method to be used in next Wednesday's voting. A decision
wu reached to use alphabetical order of names for both ballot
position and order of speaking.
Bob Currie summed up his campaigning opinions when
he told the Ubyssey "If the people who nominated me. feel
that I am qualified, that's fine. If those who vote for me think
the game way, I'll do my best to please them."
To this statement, his assistant campaign manager, John
Tennant, added "In my knowledge it requires one part brains
and nine parts experience, plus tenacity and determination
to stay at the job for 15 months.", •
Currie's opporient John McKinnon gave his comment just,
after filing a last minute nomination sheet. "I am a fourth year
commerce student, and think I am qualified for the job. I am
not an official candidate of the Commerce faculty."
Considerable comment has been given to Ian McKenzie's
statement of Holy War, which was made on the behalf of competitor for presidency Peter deVooght.
"There should be no question of inter-faculty rivalry in
AMS election. I deprecate that Engineering Undergraduate
Society Executive is officially sponsoring one of their own executive members as candidate for president of AMS."
"Since Student Council members represent the whole of
the student body, I think it an irresponsible act that any
official campus group should actively support one of their
executive members."
"Any question of professional political candidate running,
doesn't deserve comment," he added.
Foster Isherwood, former federal candidate, felt that this
did deserve comment however. "Politics should never enter
into Student Council elections, and I myself am not using
that argument. Politics have nothing to do with the administration of the job!" %
Past Council member, Rosemary Hodgins, spoke as a
seconder for Isherwood. "When a candidate has had a diversified campus life, it is disappointing to see one aspect of their
outside life being brought up in a prejudiced manner."
"Foster has been connected with clubs with no possible
political connection, such as Players Club, Parliamentary
Forum, and International Relations Club."
"Surely the student body realizes that the carrying out of
Council offices will rarely involve political beliefs."
pil Haggert's campaign manager voiced" his beliefs to the
Ubyssey with "I consider my candidate the best man because
he has had experience on USC, and has shown himself capable.
Last year he ran USC and transformed it from a useless organization to a well-functioned group."
Close Decision Brings McGoun
Cup To Varsity After 8 Year Lop
Debators Win Unanimously In
Sask., But Drop Decision Here
Nurses in training in Vancouver General Hospital
will be able to vote without coming to the campus during
the coming election.
The election committee has made arrangements to set
up a regulation election booth in the hospital for the convenience of the nurses who are in residence.
This additional booth will make a total of seven booths
on and off the campus.
Campus booths will be at the auditorium, £rock Hall,
Arts Building, Engineering Building, Physics Building and
the Bus Stop.
UBC Council To Protest
Eastern Bookstore Ban
Three Canadian book publishing firms will receive a. written protest from UBC Student Council because of their boycott of the University of Toronto bookstore.

Royal ConservatoryOffers Scholarship
Scholarship of $750 is offered by
Royal Conservatory of Mimic and McGill University Conseivntorium to
students in Canada.
Candidates must be under 22 years
of age at March 31 and two compositions, one a song, must be submitted to 132 St. George St., by that date.
Besides thu  initial award there are
three prizes of $200 each and three
prizes in the Junior Division of $50
The scholarships cover tuition and

have refused to supply the Toronto
book store with texts because the
rtore put a ten percent discount plan
:o students into effect last year.
Student Council Monday unanimously voted to support the action of
the Students' Administrative Council
of Ihe University t>f Toronto in offering books to'students at a ten percent discount and strongly protest
the boycott Imposed by the book
In August of last year, the board
of governors df U of T authorized the
discount after receiving a brief from
the Students' Administrative Council
In doing so they stated they wished
to combat the rising cc*t of education
and make possible the purchase of a
wider variety of texts by students.
Manager of the University Press and
the book store stated at the time that
by judicious planning and management
the discount plan could be affected.
In later conferences with representatives from the McMillan Company
the Company stated that they desirec'
to protect the retail book trade, and
hence the boycott.
They accused the University book
store of taking unfair advantage oi
other retail merchants. Students' Administrative Union officals point out
that only students paying cash arc
allowed the discount and therefore
the retail merchants do not suffer.
They also point out that teachers
are given a 220 percent discfunt at
well as libraries and hospitals. Bob
Hetherington, president of the Students' Administrative Council stated
that students" require consideration
also as a special case.
Practice Required
For Grad Nurses
UBC's budding Public Health nurses must combine book learning with
practical experience in order to
gradflate with a degree. The month
of January has been set aside for their
"baptism of fire."
Thirty-nine students from UBC's
Department' of Nursing and Health,
all graduate nurses studying for public health qualifications, will travel
to various parts of the province for
a period of practical experience in
public health nursing.
Professor Ruth Morrison of the Department praised the complete cooperation received from Public Health
organizations throughout B.C. "We
receive splendid cooperation from all
the hospital and field work agencies
who give the students this experience,"
she said. "It would be impossible to
prepare the nurses for Public Health
Nursing without this help."
In addition to twenty-four nurses
placed in the Greater Vancouver
Area, Miss Jessie Radford will go fo
Qualicum, Misses Bruna Facchin and
Betty Caplette to Port Alberni, Miss
Mary McDiarmid to Duncan, Miss
Jessie McCarthy to Ladysmith, Miss
Joan Sutcliffe to Armstrong, Miss
Marian Boyle to Salmon Arm, Miss
Yvonne Laurence to CasMegar, Misses
Mary McNair and Beverley Chalmers
to Trail, Miss Marguerite Cussan to
New Denver, Miss Helen Macpherson
to Nelson, Miss Nora Eddy to Sidney,
Miss Doreen Pope to Kim'berley, Miss
Morag E'ell to Princeton and Mrs. Ada
Butler to Agassiz.
Giant Parade Today
To Herald Coming
Of Pleb Mardi Gras
At noon today, students will have
an opportunity to see the seven candidates for the Queen of the Plebeian Mardi Gras, in the big Prole-
tariot parade of hfodel T limousines.
This jalopy parade will begin at Fort
Camp at 12:30 today, and circle the
Main Mall.
The seven candidates, each representing a labor union, will appear in
the beauty contest at the Plebeian
Mardi Gras dance, to be held this
Friday night in the Brock Lounge at
9 p.m.
Each candidate will wear the official
costume of the labor union she represents. The plebs who expect to attend however, will not be compelled
to wear their working clothes, and ii
is rumoured that one or  two have
rented white-tie-and-tails for the occasion.
The dance is being sponsored by the
CCF Club.
UBC's fiery orators, Don Lanskail and Al Fraser, went dowh
to defeat in a two-one decision at the hands of Saskatchewan's
Carl Mamilton end ^Claude Ellis—but succeeded in bringing
the McGoun Cup back to UBC for the first time since 1942.

The three points won in Alberta plus
the one point garnered here Tuesday
night gave us a total of four. Since
the invading teams won unanimously
at Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba the final count was UBC four,
Alberta three, Manitoba three, and
Saskatchewan two.
UBC took the affirmative ln a res-
tHujWon than "Communist Activity
be Made a Criminal Offense in Canada."
Defending the resolution, UBC's
Don Lanskail, former president of the
campus branch Canadian Legion and
the United Nations Club, contended
(hat Coigmunlsm "was a real threat
to our democracy. It is no longer a
philosophical movement—it is an international conspiracy."
University of Saskatchewan's Carl
Hamilton countered by declaring, "the
outlawing of Communism is a far
greater threat to democracy thar,
Communism Itself. To outlaw Communism would be to prove the Communist charge that our democracy is
only a sham. There is nothing a Communist would like better than a law
such as the affirmative proposes. Ii
would give him more prestige than s
mountain of Communist propaganda."
Lanskail   likened   Communism   to
Fascism.   'If ydu woke tomorrow in
one or the other you would not know
which you were in," he said.
Hamilton called Lanskail's statement
"utter rubbish. Remember that HHlei
started by banning Communists. Later
he turned on social democrats and
Jews. The ends and operations ol
Fascism are two different things. Anyway we must remember that we are
here today not to hurl charges at
Communism but to decide whether
democratic freedom should be curtailed."
Lanskail said, however, he had "nc
intention whatsoever of curtailing
democratic freedoms."
"What the law we propose would do
is simply to outlaw overt actions of
deceit and violence," he said.
Second speaker for Saskatchewan,
Claude Ellis pointed out that we already have laws against "sedition, espionage, bomb-throwing and conspiracy—in short we have laws against
everything but thought control."
"Do you think," he asked "that we
would be better off today if we had
outlawed Communism ten years ago?
Do -you think democracy has worked

That was tried in Germany and

UBC's fiery Alistair Fraser, former

Lack of Guts
Council Backs Out Of 6
Uping the weather as an excuse,
welching Student Council backed out
of playing the annual Publications
Board-Council classic in the UBC
Gym Tuesday at noon.
If Council can jnuster enough backbone to appear in the Gym next Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. the Publications
Board will gladly wallop them soundly.
Tuesday's game has gbne to the
Publications Board by default 100-0.
Game was officially cancelled when
only Walter "Flabby" Ewing, his
pockets bulging with AMS funds, turned up at the Gym to inform a hustling
Pub team that the game was cancelled.
Referee "Honest" Ole Bakken immediately   declared   tho   Pub   winner
of the game by default.
The Pub team in its pre-game warm-
up displayed masterful ball handling
and didn't miss a chance during shooting practice.
Led by aging, (30) "Uncle Vic" Hay,
the kiddies of the thriving Kinter-
garten in the depths of old Brock
Hall declared that they were extremely optimistic about the game
next week.
'We could walk around the floor and
still beat that bunch of rubs," declared lithe, lean Doug Murray-Allan
centre kingpin on the team.
Slouched in a corner, with gin
dribbling from his lips, AMS president Jim Sutherland declared, "Get
that pink elephant out of hero."
Pubsters knew Sutherland would be
no threat to them that day or any
other for that matter.
When several Council members did
show up abou 3 p.m. they hastily went
to the Council offices and locked
themselves in hoping they would not
be seen by Pubsters.
Many of them carried brass knuckles and night sticks in fear of the
wrath of the Publications Board. Pubsters have no doubt that Council will
use every means to win next Tuesday
They will probably try every method
to cripple and maim the clean living
members of UBC's press. But the Pu'b
is not afraid, said Editor-in-Chief
Jim Banham.

Let's Smash The Combine
Continued action of publishers in boycotting the University of Toronto bookstore
has aroused UBC's Student Council to come
forward in strong support of the U of T
Briefly, the situation is this. Some time
ago the University, of Toronto bookstore,
in a neffort to make possible the purchase of
a wider variety of books by students, announced a ten percent discount in the prices
of all textbooks to students.
MacMillan's—one of the leading publishers of text book*—immediately announced
that they would dif continue sale of books
to the U of T store. They were subsequently
joined in their boycott by Nelsons Ltd. and
Oxford Press.
The reason given by the publishers is
that they do not want to discriminate against
retail booksellers. A ten percent* discount,
they argue, would reduce the sales of merchants competing with the university store
to almost nothing.
The amazing thing, however, is that the
sale of those competing merchants is now
estimated at almost nothing. What harm, then,
could the ten percent discount do to competitors sales.
The point of the issue seems to be that
the publishers have set up a combine whereby .they are able to regulate prices. They
want it clear at all times that they will stand
no opposition to their price fixing methods.
In other words, they are afraid that the
Uof T action may be the thin'edge of the
wedge to enable the book industry to become
competitive once again.
So long as we maintain a free enterprise
system we must make absolutely certain that
no interference with free competition is permitted. Agreements between publishers to
maintain fixed price1 system represents an
example of the most insidepus form of combine activity.
Students, who are vitally interested in a
competitive bqok industry ought to fight the
things tooth and nail..
Perhaps they might begin by requesting
the aid of the government's combines investigators.

Let's Step The Mud Throwing
Charges of "political tinge" being hurled
at an AMS presidential nominee ought to be
stopped now—once and for all.
Two years ago, Grant Livingstone, a
noted Tory became AMS president. This
year, Jim Sutherland, a supporter of the
socialist program, has held the office. In each
case the political beliefs of the candidates
entered into the election—usually as a smear.
But it has been quite obvious that the political hue of the AMS president have no
bearing whatsoever on the conduct of the
business of student government,
In fact it seems quite clear that any
mature student has political views of some
sort. The student who takes no interest whatsoever in politics is still a small boy and
quite unfit to hold student office.
We hope that students will evaluate Mr.
Isherwood not in terms of his political views
as a Liberal but in terms of his ability to
handle the complex business of student government.
What's Going On j ^ by bob russel
Tonight's and tomorrow night's performances of Ernst Toller's "Masses
and Man" will bring to Vancouver
their first view of a theatrical movement that has had tremendous significance in forming modern theatre.
Those who attend this workshop production will go home with an entirely
new concept of the power and scope
of the theatre? '
It is the aim of the English Department, ln producing this play, to
faring to light a great play of the
modem stage, a play that would not
be otherwise shown in Vancouver.
Ihey plan to make this an anntial
Tht participant in this production
(both spectator and performer) will be
probably 'for the first time, caught
In a new experience. An evening with
a book, a lecture, a bull session; these
deal with ideas in the abstract. In
"Masses and Man* the ideas are "expressed" in theatrical terms, they
come to life with all the super-reality
of the theatre. Too long have we been
exposed to plays where verisimilitude
has been the object of production;
too long have we seen plays where
our emotions have been aroused but
our intellects left unstimulated. Expressionist productions of the calibre
of "Masses and Man" involve the audience to the extent of its capability.
But while the demands on the audience
are great, the rewards are proportionately high.
Tonight and tomorrow night you i
will see and feel the effectiveness of
light, colour and space fully exploited.
That our contemporary fare has made
little use of the developments in these
fields is illustrated by the similarity
of the recent productions of Shaw's
"Canida" .1855) and "Little Foxes,"
which was written almost fifty years
later. Dorothy Somerset, who directs
"Masses and Man" has made imaginative and positive use of light, color
and space in a manner that should
influence future Vancouver productions.
In the Drama Festival last week,
five directors slaved over detail and
psychology to present naturalistic
plays as accurately as possible, while
one director (Sidney Risk) chose a
non-naturalistic play ("Noah"), and
spent his time on imaginative creation.
The latter play provided more moments of sheer enjoyment than the
previous six put together! The latter
play won the festival. In all probability we will see a rash of non-
naturalistic plays in production.
"Masses and Man" alongside Everyman's "Noah") will set the pace.
What is Expressionism? Through
actors, through staging, through lighting and through poetry, the expressionist playwright attempts to 'express'
the essence of a person, an institution,
a political movement, etc. This means
that the playwright must be a significant philosopher besides possessing
creative genius in the theatre. As a
result of these almost exorbitant demands, few great playwrights have
arisen in. the expressionist school.
Those that have, Auguste Strindberg.
George Kaiser, Karel Capek, Ernst
Toller of Europe, and Denis Johnston
of Ireland, have left a profound mark
in the history of theatre.
Expressionism has its faults and
limitations, but its significance lies
in   its   challenge  to   the  naturalists,
who were presenting life without ar!
and the neo-romanticists, who wer
presenting art without life.
The creative philosopher-playwrights have not taken up the expressionist gauntlet, but have followed
their own personal directions.. Thf
Fascists permitted no expressionistk
'productions, for the ideas were toe
entrenched to be censored out anc
still leave a produceable play. It wa
the Hitler Regime that kilted thr
tremendous advances in un-natur-
alistic theatre that were being mad<
in Germany iu the twenties and earl:
thirties, both in the movies and on th*
Tonight and tomorrow night we are
to see a play that was banned or
presentation, a play of anti-militarlsrr
that involves and surpasses communism and capitalism to the basic'dignity of all men.
The play will be presented by the
English Department, under the direction of Dorothy Somerset, in the
Auditorium at 8:30. Admission ls free
Miss Somerset has done a tremendous service to this university in
bringing "Masses and Man" to our
stage. She had to find actors who were
interested in Theatre for its own sake
and who would lose their personalities
in the production with no thought foi
individual credit. She had to battle
this campus's almost omnipotent enemy, student apathy. She shows great
courage in presenting a play ir
which communism is discussed openly
and without the usual propagandistir
biases; and she shows great ability in
bringing such a difficult and unusual
play to life.

That's   the   opinion   of  a   Queen's
student-turned-UBC for a year, after
getting closeup  glimpses of hoth   in ■

That student i.s a counterpart of six
UE'C women who arc now attending
eastern and Maritime univcrsi.t cs
under a plan incorporated by NFCUS
some 20 years ago.
The plan bogged during the war
years, but again since 1948 Canadian
university students have the chance to
take a year's peek at their neighbors
while continuing their courses.

Information about other universities is available on the campus at the
NFCUS office, Hut B 2, behind Brock.
Since the local committee corresponds

an information centre for queries on
other universities.
American Exchange
Open to UBC Students
As a further expansion of the Cana
dian Exchange Plan, NFCUS has In
traduced a system of Canadian-Am
erican exchanges. This plan presents
wonderful opportunities to study at
such colleges as Washington, UCLA,
Southern   California,   Stanford   and
Oberlin, to mention a few.
The regulations concerning the exchange are so designed that two students, each from a different university, one Canadian, one American, may
pay the fees for their year at their
own college.
The advantages of this exchange
for a Canadian student are numerous.
Fees and Jiving expenses are higher
in the States, so money is saved by
paying a lesser amount at their own
university and enjoying a greater
amount at the American college.

NFCUS to Guarantee All Expenses
Excepting Transportation Costs
The first national student summer seminar will take place
at Fort Lennox, forty miles from Montreal on the Richelieu
River from August 15 to September 4, Tim Hollick-Kenyon
NFCUS Chairman, announced recently.
 '■ *   One hundred students representing
all universities in Canada will meet
at the federal historical site at Fort
Lennox on the scenic Richelieu River,
within easy reach of nearby Montreal. The selection of students is decided by the ratio of two students
per thousand enrolled. Therefore
UBC will be sending a delegation of
sixteen students.
The Seminars' main theme of discussion will be "Survey on Canada,'
divided into three subdivisions: Economics, History and Geography, and
Canadian Humanities. The academic
staff consists of twelve noted professors from every region 'of Canada
under the direction of Dr. Leon
Lortie, of the University of Montreal.
Jean Provost, Chairman of the
Seminars Organizing Committee,
states: "We do not Intend to make
this Seminar a purely academic activity, but rather an occasion for
students of all universities to discuss,
enjoy themselves together and know
each other better."
The expenses of the Seminar at Fort
Lennox will be paid for by NFCUS
ftiffins, but the participating student
will bear the transportation costs. At
present, a transportation pool is being
organized so that all seminar students
pay an equal'cost'. The approximate
cost of this pool should be about
fifty dollars.
Any UBC students interested in attending the Fort Lennox Seminar
should contact the NFCUS office, Hut
B2, immediately. This will be an
historic event in university student
History, and .applications should be
in early.
The National Federation of Canadian University Students
includes every student in every university of Canada into a
strong, unified body for thc purpose of integrating and improving
university student affairs.
What has it done in the past? Has it proven worthwhile?
These are usual queries to the question of NFCUS, and rightly
so. The problems and projects close to a student's needs that
NFCUS tackles are many and varied. In the past, NFCUS has
been responsible for obtaining reduced rates oi rail travel for
students, and'large discounts for student athletic equipment.
The Canadian University Press and Canadian University
Debating Association were both begun through the machinery
of the NFCUS organization.
What's in it for me? What does it plan for the future?
As new student problems arise NFCUS meets them, endeavoring
to find the solution. Among the many NFCUS projects, National
Scholarships have received top priority, following the policy
that a university education should be the privilege of ability
rather than means.
NFCUS seeks to foster a closer link between all universities by sponsoring an exchange plan whereby a UBC student
may exchange to any university in Canada, his fees being
paid, and' then returning home again in the following year.
Travel abroad during the summer is facilitated by NFCUS
obtaining reduced air and sea travel rates for students.
There are many other advantages to be gained from NFCUS,
and also many projects that are planned for the future—but the
strong support of Canadian students is .necessary in order to
haye steady and strong progress. Before NFCUS is a truly
strong national body working for the good pf the students, the
students must support it. Remember—You, are a member of
NFCUS—It works for you—Support it.

I want to thank NFCUS for making

UBC Thunderbird hockey

of the newly donated Hamber
Cup, when they defeated the
U of Alberta "Golden Bears"
7-2 Tuesday night, in the final
game of the four game series.
Tuesday's game was a thrilling
contest with the locals taking the
Initiative from the opening whistle
and applying pressure throughout the
contest. Only a very determined visiting crew kept them in the game.
The first goal of the game was
scored, by hustling Hugh Berry on a'
pass frpm Bob Koch. Hugh's goal
caught the upper corner of the rigging and gave Joe Moran in the
nets for the Bears no chance to save.
Bill Dockery, the class of the visit-
ords last night, evened the count on
a smart effort which caught the local
defenders napping. The initial canto
ended 1-1.
The break in the game came early
in the second .period when Jack MacFarlane smashed home a sizzler from
the blueline for one of the smartest
goals of the game. Clare Drake set
up the pass and Jack made no mistakes.
The second and final tally of the
middle session came from the stick
of Hugh Berry wAo picked up a
beautiful pass from Bob Koch and
fired home a bullet shot which caught
the low corner.
Hugh, Bob, and Fred Andrew all
turned in top performances for the
locals. Don Adams, Terry Nelford.

Ottawa All-Stars turned the trick

Trailing 3-1 going into the final
period, the visitors were forced to
open up in an attempt to get back
into the game. With the play wide
open, the locals completely dominated
the play and as a result tallied four
last period markers.
The first, the best goal of the game,
was garnered by Bob Koch who topped off a brilliant performance by
driving a Hugh Berry, pass into the
upper corner from an impossible
angle. That shot would have beaten the
best goalie in hockey today.
Terry Nelford copped the fifth local
tally on a three way play with Clare
Drake and Gunner Bailey. Terry's shot
was a low sizzler which gave the
goalie no chance to save.
Hard working Fred Andrew set up
the sixth local goal when he passed
to Bob Koch at the goal mouth. Bob
scored while skating backwards on
a backhand flip shot which went

Hugh Berry clicked for the final
tally of the game to get the hat trick.
His third goal came on a double pass
