Those students who enjoyed
the Mussoc's production of
The Student Prince which was
played before a total of over
4,0fl0 Vancouver music lover's

Vancouver Board of Trade at
the Hotel Vancouver ' In January.
UBC reached its goal of 50,000 Open House visitors,

Final figures will be released when the results of the
traffic counters stationed at the University gates are totaled.
It was estimated that 11,000 people were on the campus

Almost all displays attracted large and interested
crowds. For judging, the displays were divided 'into three
groups. Winners were: Group I, First Prize, Geography;

It is easy enough to imagine

Jonson sent it hack with a sarcastic laugh, and Marlowe named it Much Ado About Nothing,

TUDENTS and AMS creditors ought to have a merry
time Friday, March 21. The former will have a chance"
to attend three events that night, the latter an opportunity to
try and recover losses on these three ventures.
• The IHC is putting on its Congress of Vienna Ball, a five-
dollar a oouple affair, in Brook HaU that night. The revellers
really ought to get their money's worth as LSE has booked
the.same hall for the same time for its Suzanne, Bloch recital.
It is not clear yet whether concert-goers will be entitled to
'-free Congress of Vienna victuals.
■ To top. it off, the Players Club has a performance of
"Much Ado About Nothing'' scheduled for that night.
v a„ "Much ado about nothing" just about sums up Coordinator Jack Lintott's feelings on the matter. Lintott maintains
that LSE President John De Wolfe had neglected to inform
him of the -concert booking'De Wolfe naturally swears that
die booking was made last fall. However, no matter who is
right in this dispute, it is quite clear that the present system
of booking records is quite inadequate.
Under the present set-up the coordinator just rubber-
stamps bookings made by others. Indeed quite frequently he
brings up for council approval meetings which have already
been held.
The only remedy for this situation is to give the coordinator more power. Instead of merely approving bookings, he
ought to have a hand in making them. In other words he
should act as "convener of activities."
This solution would also clear up some of the headaches
of the AMS treasurer. Clubs seem to have a tendency to take
on financial obligations without consulting the treasurer.
Under the "convener system" bookings would have to iiave
the okay Of the treasurer to become valid.
Whatever, system Student Council decides on, it is quite
•clear that'some drastic change «in necessary.

and all that...
It fell our lot last Friday to
attend the trade union rally
called by Mr. Tom Uphill to
draft a campaign to "ensure
adequate labor representation
in the B.C. Legislature."
Mr. Uphill and the 170 delegates from 17 trade unions de-
• elded that they would not form
a new party but that they
would endeavor to extract
from candidates a promise that
"they would further the Interests of labor and be directly responsible  to  labor."
In ridings where* no such
weak-kneed candidates can be
found, the group will run its
pwu men.
We were not much impressed with the meeting — it
lacked clear thinking and a
sense of direction.
But we are, quite frankly,
disturbed hy the trend it represents.
All  of  the  existing  political
parties claim to represent the
Interests of the community as
a whole. It may appear that
the Progressive-Conservative
Party represents the Interests
of the opulent bourgeois—but
a majority of its leaders are
honestly convinced that the
"free enterprise way of life" is
in the best interests of the
whole  of society,
There has been some tendency among the pseudo-radicals
or the CCF to claim that their
party has at heart only the
interests of the "working
class"—but the party's official
policy maintains steadfastly
that It works ln the Interests
of all. classes toward an ultimate goal of a classless society.
In other words, despito the
practical effects of group pressuring, It remains a principle
of our governmental system
that government shall strive to
work in the interests of all

Yet Mr. Uphill and his cohorts come into the open and
maintain without batting an
eyelash that government ought
to be ln: the- interest of a very
small .minority—^organized labor.
There are not,quite 125,01)0
trade unionists in B.C. We suspect that the Canadian Manufacturers' . Association represents the interests of almost
as many people when it comes
right  down  it.
Yet what would happen If the
CMiA got together and set up
a slute »f candidates bound to
"respect the interests of B.C.
businessmen and responsible
only to B.C. businessmen?"
Mr. Uphill and his friends
would shout "dictators, bandits, enemies of the people,
and oppressor capitalists."
The public Is not unduly
alarmed by the antics of Uphill
and company because they
doubt   his   chances   of   success
and because "after all, labor is
the underdog."
Mr. Uphill exploits the "underdog" feeling by claiming
that the government Is funada-:
menfally anti-labor, that labor
Is In danger of losing all Its
gains, etc., etc.
Yet a check with the record
of the past 20 years would show
that for every decision against the interests of labor there
have been two against the interests of the CMA.
For every "capitalist" victory In legislation, there have
been two labor victories.
This Is as it should be—20
years ago we wore badly in
need  of reform.  We  sti|l are.
But It doesn't follow that the
best way to get ahead is to
have government in the Interests of a single class.
That siort of doctrine makes

New Era   <
The creation of a faculty of
forestry irv thq stumper o£;1950
marked the passing of an era
in ihe history of British Colum-
,, ^)ia.   .This   Province,    whose
... economy is so largely depend-
->.-. ent, an its forest industries* had
finally reached the point where
measures   were   necessary, to
perpetuate its timber resour*
Before> 1945, only a few conservationists and visionaries had worried very much about the state of
.forestry in B.C.-—most people looked beyond the margin of logged
areas and saw yet further "inexhaustible" stands ot tall stately
But in 1945, the Sloan Commission on Forestry issued its report,
in which it showed the status of
our dwindling reserves of. mature
timber. This report - also recommended the establishment of a
. .faculty of .forestry at the University w.hich, cpuld. better train men
to,lead the Province toward sound
forestry , practices than the existing, department.
An gradual transition took place
in forestry, instruction at the, University between 1946. and 1950. In
1946, a separate course of study
leading to the B.8.F, Degree was
* Inaugurated, complementing , the
existing * forest engineering course
and replacing the double-degree
courses ln arts and, forestry and
commerce and forestry. The teaching staff was Increased to meet the
demands of a greatly expanded enrolment, .and teaching facilities
were   improved.   The   Provincial
. Government ccowQ-gWitGd a 9800-
* i «cre tract of forest to the Univer
sity to provide a, practical training
ground for foresters and other
groups. Finally, the .faculty was
created with.Low ell, Beslay as the
first, dean.
Manyoi thepreseut members of
the forestry faoulty are graduates
of this University* i pthers have
come from the .United States and
a ySfcstem .Canada.
* DeansBeslty tbrings a wealth of
valuable experience-from his native Southern States, where better
forestry is practiced today* than
anywhere else on this continent.
The Dean teaches forest economics
and finance.
Professor F. Malcolmn Knapp

on the University Senate and is
Director of the University forest at

Doctor George S. Allen, an outstanding sllvlculturalist, teaches

Open To Foresters
The favorite occupation of foresters is thundering up
and down the highest, steepest mountains they can find,
pursuing some poor innocent young lad known as a com-
pa^sman, This type of work is known as timber cruising.
The cruiser catches  the com-$-
pagBnum several times during
the day, and before letting him
go, forces him to bore a hole
In a tree. The cruiser gets
great delight out of this operation, and after lt is completed,
he gives his quarry a head-
start of one chain-length, hides
behind a tree momentarily so
the compassraan won't see him
through the abney, and then
starts the cfiase 'again.
Another popular type of employment, especially with the
forest engineers, is found in
logging camps. This may ln
volve laying out logging settings or surveying roads.
It is the forester's job to
ignore all his instructions and
locate the road with as many
sharp ciuves and perpendicular grades as possible.
By making his roads impassable, the forester creates jobs
for other foresters. This is an
example of the "esprit de
corps" common to all green-
Some foresters work with insects that attack trees. It is
vogue at present for these forest entomologists to run out
into the woods and place trays
under tall trees. These trays
very soon become full of—ah—
dropping,  mostly from  birds,
Forest Club Crfeates
Faculty Fellowship
A close liaison exists between forestry students in the
Faculty of Forestry, and forest engineering students in
Applied Science. These fields of study overlap to a great
extent; in fact, many classes are taken together, Perhaps
the greatest expression of this bond of common interest is
.ito.JTflwst.Club. •
The Forest Club was organised in 1929 to promote the
cause of forestry in the Uni-
verity and throughout B.C. It
also aimed at bringing men
from industry and government
in contact with undergrads;
and, not the least of Its objectives was to create a fellowship among students interested
in forestry.
The Social Committee, under
D09 Johnston, sponsors a Fall
Dance, a Spring Banquet, and
the "Slashburn" ((outdoor
stag) annually.
One of the greatest assets of
the organization is the research
Committee. Several "UBC forest Club Research Notes" have
been widely circulated in Canada and other countries. These
are the results of undergrad Investigation and are financed
by the club and by, donations
from industry. At present
Blake Dickens and Jack Walters are preparing a sizable
forester's handbook which will
Include many tables, measurements, etc, indispenslble to
field   foresters.

Birds Come Home From
Goodwill Tour Of South
Brian Tells Story Of The
Birds Exhibition Hockey
On February 27, almofet two weeks ago, eighteen UBC ambassadors of goodwill left by plane to barnstorm two mid-western Rebal States with six games of exhibition hockey. These
two states included Colorado and Utah and even though former
UBC teams have visited these states never has a team made
such a profound impression on the local populace.
Fraternity was the order of thes^
day, und these  19 representatives
from our evergreen country nblv
complied. Six games of hockey
were played and approximately 20,
000 rabid hockey fans were more
than entertained throughout the
Southern hospitality Is a by
, word among the peoples of the
world, and from the moment our
plane nosed ln for a landing at the
Denver airport the hospitality began and did not stop*until we were
once more airborne eight days later. .
But tnT get back to hockey. The
Thunderblrd's record on their southern Jaunt stands at' two wins, two
ties and two losses. Although they
did not win all their games their
spirit and clean style of plliy have
given them an enviable record Ir
the USA.
The first two games were plav-
ed against Denver University "pioneers" ini the mlldo-high city. 5500
yelling fans turned out each night
for these two games.' Tha Denver
team is made up entirely of Canadians and they are well-equipped
and well coached. Denver won the
first game 8-5 and except for the
outstanding goaltendlng of UBC's
Don Anderson, their bespectacled
theology student, VRC would have
lost by a much greater score.
Don stopped shot after shot, and
though eight shots got past him he
was a brilliant bulwark in the blue
and gold defence.

were two big reasons for UBC's losses. The biggest was the'altitude.

The American Collegiate Hockey
Rules made another big difference,
they played under rules which were
changed tn Canada as long as ten
years ago. Such rules as being able
to pass the puck the length of the
Ico instead of from zone to zone,
and allowing body-checking only in
a team's defensive zone Instead of
all over the ice as is done here made
