 The Daily Ubyssey
The spirit of spring was wafted briefly through the
,staid Student Council chambers Monday night.
The apple blossom atmosphere broke into rosy bloom
when the campus legislators moved an official vote of
confidence in WUS president Nora Clark for her devotion
beyond the line of duty in the field of foreign relations.
Returned from a three day meet at the University of
Washington at Seattle Nora brought back with her besides
an armful of reports a Psi U fraternity pin from the Seattle

Winnipeg, Jan. 14—(CUP)—
In a heated, five-hour session
University of Manitoba Students Union members debated
inconclusively the possibility of
Manitoba's affiliation with the
International Union of Students'
Most debate arose from a rider to
a resolution from the National Fed-
erattoiT ^""Canadian"TTnhire«ttr Students which provides that two-thirds
of all Canadian universities must approve before Canada will join the
International Union,
Manitoba Student Union President,
Peyton Lyon, felt that the decision
for Manitoba to join should come
from a student majority by referendum rather than from a decision of
the Council. "If the student body does
not want to go in," Lyon said, "then
we will bring home to the students
the significance of NFCUS and IUS.
Furthermore, assent to IUS affiliation would provide our delegates with
more solid credentials than if Council alone affirmed the decision."
Fear was expressed by Council that
such a referendum would necessarily
come at the same time as UMSU presidential elections thus providing a
"Red political football" which would

Grant Livingstone declined
to accept an LPP Club challenge to a full-dress debate on
Communist activities in the
campus branch of Canadian
'Most of the charges are not worth
replying to," he told The Daily Ubyssey.
"The perennial reply to any attack
on the Communist Party is the squeal
'witch-hunt'," he said.
"I did not introduce politics into the
legion. Two Communists did it when
they urged that the legion interfere
in the Ford strike of 1945."
"As to there being only 13 LPPers
in branch 72 of the legion; if that is
all there are, then there must be
quite a few Trotskyists who belong."
Livingstone singled out his attackers for counter-offensive:
"To Mr. Bryce: He always has viewed me with suspicion.'
"To Mr. Shulman: The resolution
which he supported never was passed.

In Legion's Fight
With UBC Reds
Here Is a resume of charges and
counter-charges from this week's
dispute on campus Communists in
the Canadian Legion:
Grant Livingstone: "An Insidious
Communist minority is seeking to
discredit the legion on the campus."
Norm Littlewood: Ridiculous!
There are not more than 13 Communists in Branch 72."
Perry Millar: "Ever since this
legion branch was formed the LPP

general membership and discourage
attendance at meetings," the president
"The executive of the branch has
scrupulously avoided political discussions," Millar said. "The legion
is a service - organisation and has
never considered expelling the Communist element."
"So long as the regular members
of the branch continue to attend the
open meetings and vote according
to their common sense and conscience,
the vociferous Communist element
will never control the branch," Millar declared. "But," he said, "it is
up to the members to see that the
majority opinion prevails."

Anyway, any opinion I expressed on

candidates I referred to were not

Radsoc 'Hums' Without
Old Arts, Science Tiff
There is one place on this great big, rivalry-ridden campus
where Sciencemen and Artsmen work in complete and blissful
Yesterday, I was present at the in-^-7-
augural campus broadcast of the University Radio Society  and witnessed
for the first time in a stormy university career, this amazing phenomena.
With friendly accord Engineers,
Pre-medical students, and Artsmen
went about the business of presenting
the first in a series of shows which will
brighten the noon-hour lethargy of
UBC students.
With Chief Engineer Al Goldsmith
at the controls, feeding the broadcast
to speakers in the Brock Hall lounge,
the cafeteria and the Stadium, the
program went on the 'air" at 12:15
p.m. with an introduction and newscast by Al Freeman.
Freeman introduced Radsoc President Ernie Perrault who gave an
introductory talk to the students concerning the aims and plans of the
URS for future shows. Perrault
spoke of the problems which were
met during the development of *he
station and program technique.
Though he pointed out that the
personnel conducting the program
were   amateurs,   a   witness   to   the
initial broadcast would not have been
at all aware of this fact. Except for
a few "first time" minor "bugs," the
program went off smooth as silk.
Perrault went on by inviting suggestions and criticisms from the students, pointing out that it was their
station and that they were its "best
friends and most valuable critics,"
In addition, he asked students to
submit club notices and any emergency announcements to the new desk
and that they would receive immediate attention.
With Frank Darknell as News Editor
and Dili Nicol, campus broadcasting
director, the rest of the program
went off smoothly featuring music and
a short campus news survey by Les
Though a few trembling scripts in
the hands of students bespoke "first-
nighter" jitters, the whole show was
carried out with professional smoothness. Though a few frantic gestures
(mysterious and altogether incoherent
to the unknowing witness) indicated
last-minute problems, there was promise of future bigger and better shows
in a really "big-time"  atmosphere.
The amendment arose out of a petition of the Liberal Club to affiliate
with the nationwide Canadian Liberal University Federation.
The Liberals explained that the
federation had no party affiliations,
received no party funds and its formation was for the purpose of distributing a news letter to Liberal clubs
on Canadian campuses.
Despite the fact that the AMS code
states that "(political) clubs shall not
be directly affiliated wirth, or receive
funds or direction from any outside
organizations" Chairman Grant Livingstone felt "a mistake had been
made and the article should be amended."
"This case parallels that of the Socialist Club who were granted permission to join the naitionwide Cooperative Commonwealth University
Federation if they changed their name
to CCF Club," Livingstone said,
The amendment permitting affiliation will be sent to the Judiciary
Committee for final drafting and
then presented to the students at a
general AMS meeting for final ratification.
Open Nominations
For Council Seats
Aspirants for top Alma Mater Society offices will take to the soap
boxes this month in preparation for
elections which begin on the campus
February 4,
Nominations for president and
treasurer must be in the AMS office
by 5 p.m. January 28.
Other nomination dates are: February 4, for junior member, Co-ordinator of activities, and sophomore
member. All others, February 11.
Elections for each office will be
held on the Wednesday following the
closing of nominations.
Candidates for president and treasurer will address the student body
February 2. All other candidates will
make similar addresses two days
before elections.
Nominations for each candidate
must be signed by ten members of
the Alma Mater Society in good
standing, and no student may sign
for more than one candidate.
Ballot boxes will be placed in the
foyer of the auditorium, in Brock
Hall, in the Agriculture building and
in Applied Science building.
Candidates platforms -will be published in The Daily Ubyssey on the
Friday immediately preceeding each
election. Candidates statements will
appear the day before elections.
commercial stations for possible use
by professional musicians has forced
the student society to cancel plans
for a regular "Music from Varsity"
Ernest Perrault, president of the
Radio Society, and members of his
executive will meet today with E. A.
Jamieson, secretary- manager of the
Musicians Protective Union in Vancouver,
Perrault says he will seek "relief
from the ban and a straight statement of policy from the union."
Delay in negotiations has made it
"very doubtful if we will be able to
produce "Music From Varsity" this
year," Perrault said.
All universities in Canada, through
the National Federation of Canadian
University Students, are seeking to
repeal the ban on the grounds that
student-sponsored programs are amateur, educational and cultural.
The United States National Students Organization has also entered
the fight against the edict.
1 As a result of Livingstone's statement, Monday, that "an insidious
Communist minority is attempting to
gain control of the legion," Littlewood
challenged him to a full-dress debate
on the controversy.
Describing Livingstone as "a Don
Quixote fighting a Red windmflF
Littlewood told The Daily Ubyssey
that "the charge is ridiculous. There
have never been more than 13 Communist members in the UBC branch
of the legion."
A rider to the challenge read: UI
remind you (Livingstone) that I did
not seek to introduce politics into
the legion. That responsibility 'les
with you."
"Livingstone's charges will split the
ranks of the legion and seriously reduce its effectiveness," Littlewood declared.
"As a matter of fact the legion has
been steadily on the skids ever since
Livingtsone's administration. His policy of conducting evening meetings
has eliminated many from the meetings. The result is that the legion policy is decided by a few—70 to IM
members out of a thousand is the
usual attendance," he said.
Other left-wing leaders stood behind Littlewood.
Murray B. Bryce, president of the
Student Socialist Club said: "we may
well view with suspicion any politician whose claim to fame is based upon
'witch-hunts' against minority groups."
Cliff Greer, member of the Student
Socialist Club, declared that both
sides were "away off balance."
"Livingstone's charge that the Communists are trying to disrupt the
legion is presumptious. There is a
wide difference between trying to get
a democratic body to accept proposals
it is reluctant to adopt, and employing
tactics designed to destroy that body,"
he said in a signed statement
"On    the    other    hand,    Penner's
charges against Livingstone are also
a gross presumption."
Donald K. Ward, who was on the
Legion committee concerned with
grants and pensions stated "Livingstone has not always supported the
increase of veterans grants. He Intimated to our committee that he
would like to see us very inactive to
appease Ottawa and not embarrass
the government by pressing for increases ..."

Office Employees
Ask Mail Pickup
Alma Mater Society office employees are determined to rid themselves
of the stacks of club mail cluttering
up the office.
They ask clubs to pick up their
unclaimed letters. Drastic measures
may have to be taken if this is not
done, officials state.
They request that a list of club
executives be left at the information
desk in the AMS office.
Here is a list of clubs with unclaimed mail: Biological Discussions Club,
Economics Club, Historical Society,
Jr. Agricultural Institute of Canada,
Letters Club, Mathematics Club,
Pharmacuetical Club, Phillatellic Society, Physics Society, Pre-Dental,
Sigma Tau Upsilon, Society of Microbiologists, Society of Automotive Engineers, Varsity Bank, Varsity Fish
and Game Club, and VE7ACS.
Legion Petitions Gov't
For Living Cost Bonus
The government will be watching with interest veterans'
response to a suggestion put forward at the last Legion meeting
that UBC's student veterans take certain steps toward obtaining
a cost-of-living bonus, said Perry Miller, campus legion president, yesterday.

member of Parliament and statte in
reasonable terms why they feel a
bonus is necessary, he said.

Presses will roll this week to produce the January issue of The Thunderbird, UBC's growing campus magazine.
Contents this month are almost
evenly divided between fiction and
non-fiction. List of contributors includes such familiar names as William McConnell, Enjie Perrault. Bob
Harlow, Norman Klenman, Paul
Wright and Hilda Thomas. Among
newcomers are Eric Broderick, Kathleen Stewart and A. H. Burt.
Veterans are also requested to write
a letter to an editor of one of B.C.'s
newspapers explaining why the bonus
is necessary and why it is in the interest of the public.
In order to provide concrete evidence for the Department of Veterans
Affairs several specific cases of extreme hardship, which may lead to
premature departure from university,
are required in the Legion office.

Student Council, Monday night, slammed
clown the rubber stamp on a lengthy list of
«lection rules brought in by the Election
Committee ... a sub-group set up to investigate possible changes in electioneering.
Councillors hastened to point out that
despite the ominous pernickediness of the
legislation candidates in the looming Alma
Mater Society general elections would be
permitted to campaign in any way they saw
fit provided that they did not have more than
two posters measuring 21 by 28 inches, nor
more than three posters measuring 21 by
And further, no professionally produced
signs shall be permitted nor shall any candidate be allowed an expenditure exceeding
the cost of five photographs, and further that
no candidate shall undertake nor cause to be
undertaken any campaigning on the day of
And further, any candidate whosoever
shall contravene or cause to be contravened,
these regulations shall be immediately and
forthwith declared by these presents, ineligible.
Quid pro quo, animus ferandi, ferae
naturae, nulum bonum, ratio decidendi . . .
and so on. Nuts.
Student elections at UBC have developed
into forlorn box socials—due in large part to
the hopeless complexity of these regulations.
The net result is that candidates are
afraid to attempt anything unusual for fear
of incurring the wrath of the omnipotent
elections committee.
The real danger, however, lies in the fact
that the greatest single threat to student government—apathy on the part of the student
body—has its roots in this parlour game
routine that occurs every year about this
Open up election rules and we shall have,
if nothing more, at least some interest. Pretty
girls, huge posters, bands, elephant parades,
may sound a little fanciful but they would be
an improvement over the quiet little auditorium addresses and the formula-following
posters we now enjoy.
Far from prejudicing the success of an
election such freedom would allow candidates
a fuller opportunity to demonstrate their ingenuity. Fact is that we are often inclined
to be a little over-serious about our sacred
heritage of self government. It should be
enjoyed; not laboured over.
The Children's Hour
Hello, chowderheads.
This is your old Uncle B. on his weekly
prowl through the half-bitten olives and spilled drinks of the human cocktail party, doing
janitorial duty in print.
He wishes to say that many a jubilant
delinquent has been tried, and found wanton.
He also wishes to say (sorry, George) that
many a woman's New Look will prove to be
her long suit.
And - if anyone is still with him at this
point - he also wishes to say something about
a toothy little news item which appeared,
suitably garnished, in a Vancouver daily;
and which was to the effect that a woman
doctor now upholds the right of adolescents
to flirt.
Flirting, the lady medic declares, "is a
civilizing influence - properly done, it is part
of the art of living."
The doctor said that flirting could be
tabbed as "necking" — or any other thing —
but it involves "trying to please other people."
flirting, she said, also taught co-operation.
The same news item quotes a member
of UBC's department of sociology as being in
qualified agreement with this view of things.
If flirtation is interpreted as a chance to
get better acquainted before marriage - rather
than after it - then science is for it, the
sociologist is reported to have said.
&oy oh boy oh boy. Vive le science.
They limited this to adolescents. And
they wisely stopped short of giving a few
pointers on the Art of Flirting.
Ihe first practical difficulty may be shortly disposed of by saying to hell with it—
what's good for adolescents is good enough
ifor us, too.
The second practical difficulty is not so
easily disposed of. Happily, however, your
Hfflld Uncle B., who was quite a flirt himself
in bis day (it was due to his success that
burlesque houses instituted the custom of
having a husky bouncer patrolling each aisle)
is in a position to drop a few hints on Cooperation Between Citizens; or, Beyond the
Frontiers of Science—What?
To begin with, you must remember that
though we are stealing the adolescent's thunder, we must perforce limp along without a
great deal of his lightning. More boom than
ban, so to speak, when you reach your age.
This automatically rules out such activities
on your part as offering lifts on your bicycle
and doing handstands  on  the pipe fences
surrounding these lawns.
It also rules out such acts of flirtation
as roaring furiously through the streets, in
an old model car, one drooling head and one
prehensile arm projecting from a window, in
search of "quail." (No wonder they quail).
If you must have flirtation on wheels,
you must learn to draw your car up gently
beside the other citizen, step out, doff your
Homburg, and say: "I hope you don't think
I'm being forward, but " Streetcar transportation being what it is, you're almost certain of success.
Another variation on this theme is To
drive slowly past the citizen who is the object
of your affection, and toss a large box of
chocolates at her feet, doffing your Homburg
as you pass by. This is known as the High
Class approach; and is certain to arouse curiosity. The next box you toss should have
your calling card enclosed.
But you get the idea. Smoothness is
Restrictions of space prevent us from
detailing such other tried and tested media
as The Look (the Friendly, the Soulmate and
the Burning - this last best simulated by
placing a shred of tobacco under the eyelid).
Then we have the Political Approach; the
Party Approach ("do you come with the
drinks?") and that old master-stroke, the
Double Gambit Sally (which your Uncle,
pressed for funds, will divulge on written
request for a paltry ten cents.)
Meanwhile we give you, gratis, the old
Tried and True Entree, developed in the Caf
in 1936 and never failed since.
Pick out the citizen in the Caf with whom
you wish to flirt. Send a waitress to her table
with a ham sandwich. On the sandwich stands
a toothpick; and from the toothpick flys a
note, with the words: "Where Is It?" Keep
this up for three days.
At the end of three days, go to her
table in person, and say: "Where is it, Dream
Then, when she replies, in accents
hammy: "Where is what, Dream Man?" you
"The key to unlock those golden chains
you have wound around my heart, Dream
Woman," Then you take her hand. Both

Dear Sir:
Isn't it possible to utilize the
dull Wasserman other than as a
writer for a Student's Newspaper?
The enclosed sample of a university education (Test Cases-
January 6) is worthy of neither
student nor "peasant" consumption. The st-tlrical humour, obviously meant, is obliterated by
the adolescent stupidity of the
writer Wasserman.
It is extremely unfortunate that
the University Supervisors don't
exercise some restraint in the
publication of such tripe.
Read the article—don't assume
this to be a hollow complaint.

72, Ike Shulman, past-president of
the UBC LPP Club said: "At a meeting of the legion last fall, I spoke
in favour of a resolution to campaign
for a cost-of-living bonus. It was
Mr. Livingstone, in the chair, then
re-opened the question and, after a
strong plea from him the resolution
was defeated by about 2 per cent of
the membership."
"Livingstone has been consistent in
his campaign for Grant but not for
grants," he quipped.
Gordon Martin, president of the Social Problems Club felt that Livingstone's charges were ill-founded.
"Starting from the assumption that
the legion is an organization for veterans (including Communists) let him
specify what particular charges go
to make up this discrediting, obstructing, slandering, seriously affecting the
reputation of, etc., the legion."
"Further, let him produce the 'full
slate' of Communist executive officers
of two years ago—there simply wasn't
any," he said.

Students at UBC prefer apple and
raisin pies to any other kind, says Bill,
although bakery production schedules
include peach, pineapple, blueberry,
rhubarb, mince, cherry and various
cream pies.
Christmas cakes were produced on
the campus for the first time last December, and more than 100 were purchased   by   students   and   professors.
In making doughnuts, some 150
pounds of shortening are required
every week to maintain supply. They
provide doughnuts and pastry not
only for the Caf and the snack bars
on the campus, but for the tables at
Fort and Acadia Camps,
Bill revealed that several home economics girls come in regularly for
on-the-spot baking experience under
the supervision of second cook Harry
"Some of the girls like it for rest
periods and some like it for work,"
said Harry, "but I wouldn't like to
be quoted on that.'
Bill, who spent over live years with
the Royal Canadian Navy as petty
officer cook and baker, brought the
Totem bakery into active production
last January.
"Increased demand for our product
and installation of new equipment
finds us rather cramped for space,"
he said. "But we hope the situation
will soon be remedied."

We suppose all of Hal Tennant's reading public has read his
crime against humanity which was published in last Thursday's
isue of the Daily Ubyssey, — all one of them, that is.
We feel rather sad about the whole thing. As a matter of
fact ,we feel rather strongly about being criticized by an illiterate peasant whose oral English is a curious mixture of Hind^Un
stani and Lower Basin Street slang. We could stoop to najne4
calling — we could mention that Hal was dishonourably discharged from the Sports Department for the unspeakable, crime
of ogling the feminine reporters, or that it is a welkknown fact
that he is a confirmed dope addict, — but we shall fight fair,
and mention none of these things.

Bird Hockey men To Meet
White Hawks Wednesday
Smarting under a recent 6-5 defeat at the hands of Vancouver White Spots, UBC's hockey playing Thunderbirds will
skate out on the Forum ice tonight, in quest of their initial 1948
win at the expense of B. C. Electric's White Hawks.
Frank  Frederickson,
This weekend presents a marvellous opportunity for adventure loving devotees of sport to enjoy themselves. Playing
on Vancouver Island will be three campus athletic aggregations.

from their Boxing Day victory over
Vancouver Lions, the Islanders are

But campus and local rugby moguls
point out that Al Laithwaite's student fifteen is one of the "hottest"
teams ever assembled on the Pacific
Coast. With a backfield which is almost ihe same as last year's winning
combination, and a forward line of
experienced players the Blue and
Gold is odds on favorite to win the

that which dropped the heart-breaker
in New Westminster last Sunday. Bill
House, who turned in some remarkable work between the pipes in spite
of the six pucks that slipped by
him, will again don the pads for
tonight's encounter, leaving Captain
Bob Saunders free to join Terry Nelford on the first defence.
Koch, Andrew and Berry will form
the first line of attack, with Young,
Torfason and Wagner on the second.
Gus Reid, who was injured slightly
in the White Spots game, will be
ready for tonight and will centre
Jim Rowledge and Jack Lerbeckno
on the third line. The "third string"
was really flying for the first two
periods last Sunday, until Ried was
forced out of the game with a badly
cut eye.
Ready for relief duty on the rearguard will be Rookie Bob Peebles
and Mai Hughes. Peebles showed
well during the time he was on the
ice Sunday, while Hughes showed a
willingness to mix it with the opposition's forwards.

Phi Delts Win
Over Betas
In Volleyball
¥esterday noon, the Phi Delts
became the Volleyball champions of the UBC campus, downing a Beta sextet by taking two
of the three games in the finals.
But such a short statement does
not tell all the story. The Phi Delts
took the first game by a 15-6 score.
Then the second game began and a
spirited Beta team attempted to come
back to victory. The lead see-sawed
back and forth between the two
teams. Then with the score at 4-4,
the Betas went on a scoring spree that
stopped only when they had a 12-4
lead. The Phi Delts fought back and
had eleven points before the Betas
were going again. Second game score:
Betas 15, Phi Delts 11.
Both teams now had a game apiece
and they settled down to a pitched
battle for the volleyball crown. Scoring again was very even and the lead
was first lost and then won by the
Phi Delts. The score was tied at
seven all, then ten all, eleven all,
twelve all, and then with the score
tied at thirteen all, the Phi Delts
took two quick ones to win the last
game and the series.
Oh well, Betas! Next year?
