. ■, One guest editorial dbes not
provide enough opportunity to
aolve many of the world's ma-
Jor problems. You need at least
two. As a consequence, I'll
leave world problems to others
and limit myself to listing some
of the things that make UBC
an Interesting place to work.
j.*, Some of the things about the
student body, that is, because yo i
could spend the allowed &00 words
Aibont any One of: the University
setting(when the curtain gbe* up),
the faoulty, staff, Board, Senate
or alumni.
. The first thing I like about Uie
•Student Body ia that they do reel
that the University is theirs, and
they act accordingly. This does not
refer merely to the substantial contributions they have mode to its
physical plant, though I doubt
/whether any atiidemt body, any-
where, any timt, hat even made
a more handsome contribution to
Us Alma Mater than the students
of this University have done and
ate doing to pay some |400,000 out
ot limited person*! resources, to.
wkrds the coat of the War Memorial Gymnasium.
But'over and above these contributions, I admire particularly the
responsibility with wkloi the Stu.
difet 1*o4y eonducts its own ailaln,
anl ihe cooperation which is in
vej^ably-eateaded t« 4W *tber elements Mn the University in the
conduct of UnivsrsHjr bueiness.
I suppose ithat the Student Body
—#nd their representatives, tbe
Students' Council — can make nn...
takfes — th^y. share human frailty
with tbe rest of us — even guest
editorial writers — but by and
large 1 think the record of student
self-government on this campus is
exceptional.. It has been a great
ple&s-ure to know and work with
eatfh succeeding student President
and Students' Council, without exception.
Another special feature of the
UiC Student Body which fills me
With admiration is the use they
make of the lunch hour. Business
meetings, lectures, displays, per.
fofaiances, rallys, parades, for the
pvfrjboses of promoting learning
profresslonal Interests, charities.
world affairs, athletics, or»art, Illustrate an educational appetite that
is as all-embracing as it is Oar.
Like the openmindedness with
which tbe students pursue their
muitiarlous investigations and I
admire their unwillingness to be
stampeded by anything — except
perhaps the examination schedule.
Just as I was writing the last
sentence, a student came In and
presented me with a cigar In honour or his first Iborn—a son; a
visit which interfered with the
completion of this editorial but
one requiring a prolonged exchang;•)
nf views, and much more important
In any case than a guest editorial.
There were lots more things I ln.
tedded to list but this one illustrates something of the spirit of a
community of which it Is a great
pleasure to be a part.

Professor Tells Of
Visit To  Bevan
Dr. Geoffrey Davies visited Aneurin Bevan in his home
in the Ebbw Valley Wales this past summer.
On Friday, during his talk "Britain in the Election Year," Davies
who taught history in England
while there, said Bevan was the
foremost figure in British politics
He felt Bevan would rfbon be
fighting at close quarters with h's
opponent,   Churchill.
According to Davies, the situation In Britain was much better
then he had been led to expect.
He reported thiat while consider
able austerity still exists, tlio
British would continue with the
^'Welfare State" whether the par .y
in power be Conservative or Labor.
Some people there wondering, said
Davies, whether the cost ot e-
armament was worth the sacrifices.
"Vermin" clubs were organized
by labor followers after statement
by Bevan In parllment that the
Tories "were worse then vermin."
Although citizens

were  better
Davies thought National Health
program had t>een too geenroust as
it permitted anyone In tbe country
to receive medical benefits free of
charge. "This," he sai*d, "has even
led people from Montreal to go to
England for operations, as It is
cheaper to pay costs  there.''
Says Anita
Seat-Hogging and loud talking in
the Library fere the two top prob.
lems faced by officials, Student Library Committee head Anita Jay
told the Ubyssey Thursday.
"The practioe of reserving seat
space and then leaving for hours
on end Is downright unfair to the
sent.hUnting students," Anita said.
"Unecessary conversation makes
lt almost impossible for other students to concentrate. This is es.
peclally serious at this exam time,'*
she said.
Further suggestions for improvement of library services should be
signed and placed in the Suggestion Box near the return slot at
the main desk or to the AMS office in care of Anita Jay.
The committee for library service Improvement is already working on suggestions which Includes
requests to release overnight reserve books at 5 o'clock, and the
.conversion of the basement entrance to a lounge.
UBC students are being taken
for a ride by the BOB at 26c a

told a etudent CCF meeting Wednesday, that Ottkwa student* ride

Mrs. Jamieson intimated that

She attacked the creation of residential and industrial zones on
Lulu Island. "These areas should
be left for market gardening, to
produce inexpensive fruits and
vegetables for Vancouverlte-a,"
she said.
The trend across Canada ls for
public ownership of utilities, she
said. "Vancouver could do worse
by following suit."
By Xmas
Only $4000 On Hand
For $60,000 Note Due
Unless students honour $11)000 in pledges for construe
tion of the War Memorial Gymnasium by Christmas, AM* will
be in financial "hot water."
AMS negotiated a lpan on the
strength of $15,000 pledged by students. Up to date only M.ooo have
been  received.
This loan
must be paid off by
"It has not been possible to contact each student owing money Ini.
dlvldually because of the' large
number of address changes that
have taken/place ,since last spring
when the gym pledges were filled
out. We a«k therefore, that those
students whom we cannot contact, come to the AM8 Office cashier and pay their pledges without
being contacted," AMS president
Vaughan  Lyon  declared.
$60,000 NOTE
The AMS drew a 90-day note
for $60,000. Unless a quarter of
that sum is paid hy mid-December,
the Society will probably be nnible
to get a renewal on tbe note.  '
"We hope that students will live
up to their record of coming thro,
ugh With full support when things
get rough. We -want to clean up as
much of the gym pledge oainpalgn
as we possibly can in the next
week," Lypn said.
Lyon Is also appealing to'other
groups to help pay off the rest of
the loan. The Alumni Association
has already contributed $5,000.
We cannot expect furttier support unless the students do their
part and honor their promises,"
Lyon added.
"No Suds
At Queens"
president of Queen's University
has made an appeal to student organizations to curtail the cosump-
tlo of alcoholic beverages at football games. He believed that the
rowdy behavior at the recent
gahes is a direct result of the open
drinking observed at these games.

The mood Is solemn. There

prices, DD.M.?
D.D*M. pf course, not, you . . .
you . . .economist! We've had
enough headaches, but can't
you think of something?
Jaeobsby TlUs ls a weighty matter requiring deep cerebration.
I take it that the function of
our Department Is to delude the
public into . . . er . . . think,
ing we are doing something?
(This    remark    meets    with
noisy approval.)
D.D.M. That's plain enough. We
must protect ourselves against
being accused of doing nothing.
Now, here is the problem.
What's the cause ot this rise
in prices?
Wlnterbottom Money.
MeHardy Credit.
Wormwood Re-armament.
Smith  The United  States  . . .
they started it.
O.D.M. Don't ever say that Alberta. The U.S. is our ally, not
our 'boss. And remember Americans are investing a billion
a year in Canada.
Jacobsby You've said lt, D.D.M.
The cause of the trouble is in.
I remember a course we had
nt Harvard on Keynes . . .
MeHardy Aw, shut up . . . you
aud your Harvard. I *U*nd by
tihe quantity theory of money
Which our professor dealt with
at length Bit UBC. »
D.D.M. You all seem to forget
the nefarious* work of the trade
union? , . . forcing up wages
and forcing u|> prices.
Worn-ftoood The trade unions
blame the retailer, the retail*
er blames the wholesaler, tbe
wholesaler blames tb.e manu-
ilacturers, the manufacturer
blames the trade unions ...
(Wormwood goes Into hysterics, McWardy thumps him on

for u* cocajepla. The meeting Is
in .an uproar. They all start
laughing. D.D.M. Is upset ...
the meeting is getting out ot
O.D.M. Order, order, gentlemen.
This is no laughing matter. The
welfare of the country . . . our
welfare . . . everything depends
on us.
MeHardy I've got lt, I've got
it. Do what we always do ln a
crisis . . . raise taxes. Take the
money away from the people.
Then they won't have it to
spend. Prices will fall.
O.D.M. Now, that's a constructive idea*. Raise the Income tax,
Increase the excise tax . . . Item
our (with a shudder), tobacco,
cosmetics, automobiles, refrlg-
- erators . . everything.
Wlnterbottom And raise the sal.
es tax. (Cries of 'hear, hear'.)
D.D.M. And we can always
blame it on re-armament. The
Canadian public will stand any.
thing . . . anything.
MeHardy You said lt. But let's
soften the blow. Let's cut a
nuisance tax. Ah, I have it. Abolish the tax on cigarette pap.
D.D.M- You're in good form today  B.C.
Jacobsby That's because he rolls
his own. But you forget something, MeHardy, you forget that
we'll spend the money . . ..we'll
pump it back into circulation
on re-armament ... or some,
MeHardy And is that you're objective?
Jacobsby Oh, don't mistake me,
old boy, I never object to increasing taxes. You must re.
member I joined the Service
. . . the Civil Service .'. . during
the war. Taxes by all means,
but in Harvard ...
MeHardy A,w, shut up about
Harvard. Tell me what you
think for a change.
D.D.M. Aren't you expecting
too much for a university man?
All he ls ever expected to do
Is to repeat what he has been
told to think. But I'm afraid
you'll have to come up with
something better than abolishing the tax on cigarette papers.
MeHardy Oh, that's easy. Clamp
down on credit. Raise down
payments to fifty per cent and
make the suckers pay up In a
year  ... *
O.D.M. Ah, that is food. Ont
{down credit . . . and we can
tax them a little more severely.
That's food, B.C. Ton are in
good voice.
Wormwood I hope B.C. Is not
forgetting the M'V part of the
question. How do you propose
to cut down M'?

chartered banks don't need to

MeHardy (laughing to burst at
the seams). A hipt, my boys
Raise the Bunk of Canada's dis.
count rate. A nod is as good as
a wmk. The banks will raise
their discount rate all right,
but cut down their loans . . .
not on your life.
D.D.M. Still, I think it is a
good idea. Credit control . .
make it more difficult to buy
on the instalment plan, make
■it more difficult to borrow for
u*ny punpose. Yeah, that sounds
like sense. Anything more gentlemen?
Jaeobsby You'll have to control
investments If you want to control (prices.
D.D.M. Now, don't be difficult,
Harvard. You know we have
enough trouble on our hands.
Tha less we interfere with business the better. You know what
the Canadian Chamber of Com.
merce would say. They'd raise
. . . something unpleasant. No,
keep politics out of lt.
Jmobsby But I tell you.
O.D.M. Tell your grandmother.
The last thing I want to do is
to interfere with normal business. And remember the Americans are investing a blllkm this
year in Canadia. Would you
keep out American business,
would you? I see you are doubtful, Harvard. No, let invest,
ment go on. Oh, I admit it'B at
an unprecedented height, but
that's how Canada* will become
great . . . greater national income and more taxes.
Jaeobsby It's okay with me, but
we should know what we're doing . . . we're asking Canadians
to pay for this great investment
in higher prices for everything.
D.D.M. Now, don't be difficult.
Harvard. Aren't we correcting
high prices through high taxes
and Stricter credit controls?
(There Is an uneasy silence.
MeHardy, as beoomes a Westerner, 4s cheerul,)
MeHardy Oh, we could siphon
off more purchasing power by
selling Government bonds.
Wlnterbottom (rousing himself)
Eh, at a time when we're col.
lecting a hundred million dollars a month more than our estimates? What do we want to
borrow for?

The announcement ln the October 12 Ubyssey, (p. 1), aptly headed' "Birds Vlflh at Last Ove£ Bookworms," explained the closing of
the Library bulldtag at 2 p.m. on
Saturdays when football games
were played in the adjacent field.
It maylbe that the explanation
should have been run prior to each
of the six games.
Last year it was found impossible to prevent enthusiastic rooters from swarming onto the Lib.
ru*ry roof and Into the bookstacks,
creating a serious hasard to persons and to university property.
The resulting uproar and general
lack of control made normal operations ont of the question, and this
year such conditions were avoided
by prevention.
** Student conduct lif the Library
is subject to control largely by student opinion. The Library staff ls

Editor, The Ubyssey
We, the executive of the PMA,
having read your editorial in the
Nov. 22 edition of the Ubyssey,
agree thai it left a foul, taste in
our mouths.
We understand that where student government Is concerned
there will be many Instances of
disagreement, and we feel that
these shouldsbe reported to the
student body fairly, cleanly and
in an unbiased manner.
We question your judgment
when you refer to our elected representatives, Bill Neen ln particu.
lar, In terms suah as "gutless wonders" a*nd furthermore Question
your sanity in stating that these
four councillors have not an "enviable  record.''      ,
It is we, the student body, who
are the judges as to the councillors' achievements or fudlures and
not the editor of the Ubyssey.
Don't forget, Mr. Armour, we aire
a group of free individuals who, it
given the straight unvarnished
truth, are capable of making our
own decisions.

UBC Braves play Vindex second
division in a sudden-death cup
game at Douglas Park.
It was a big, night, at the
Forum on Wednesday for the
UBC Thunderbirds hockey
team, when they posted their
fourth straight Commercial
Hockey League victory by
downing the PNE Indians 6-4.
_ Firing home three unanswered
goals In the third period, Birds
proved to all and sundry that they
are: the hotest team in the league
Never more than one goal separating the two teams throughout al.
most the entfre game, the college
boys' really put. on the pressure in
the final stansa, and In the end-
condition and perseverance paid off*1
In goals.
HAAjS YOUNG once nioi*e led the
way, with twf goals and two assists to cllmib to the top of the
league scoring race while Steve

chuk and Haas Young, when this
line completely bewildered tht PNE
defence  and  soonid.
But the secret to UBC's victory
lies in their cooperation and spirit.
The players are on the Ice with the
will to win, and their steady hustling and back.checking have given
them foui* stuaight victories. The
team plays as a whole from the
goaltender to , the forwards and
this cooperation pays off in goa's.
IT IS SAFE TO 'SAY that the
PNG Indians did not havt an off
might on Wednesday; they played
their 'best. The score was close
throughout the game, and the stick-
handling of Indian's Ernie Dougherty and Gordie Langton kept them
always in the game. But even icing
five forwards when UBC was e man
short from penalties did not give
them many goals.*
