 YOU
THE  MONEY  — TAKE  YOUR  CHOICE
Here Are The First Slate Candidates
I am seconding Jim
Craig's nomination
for presidential candidate because I
know he is the best
man to represent the
now unrepresented
majority of students
on this campus. Jim
Was an RCAF flying
officer during World
War II and graduated
in Arts from this university in 1950. After
graduation he worked
for a year in the
woods as a feller and
bucker and then spent
a year touring Europe.
In 1952 Jim was an
executive trainee
with the Hudson's
Bay Co. and later
spent several months
in accounting.
Since entering Law
Jim has been a cease
less worker &.- chairman of NFCUS and
he represented UBC
at this year's national conference in Toronto. Jim is a member
of Vancouver Art
Gallery and Civic
Ballet Society as well
as being an enthusiastic skier and tennis
player.
Ed Jakeman,
Applied Science 4
The position of president of the AMS is
one which requires
experience, maturity,
high interest in and
close contact with
student affairs. With
these requirements in
mind, I .second Ron
Bray.
Ron graduated from
UBC in 1950 with a
B.A. and B.Com.; following three years
with an insurance
firm he returned and
enroled in law, receiving the Ladner prize
for high standing in
first year. This year
he is treasurer of the
AMS and a member
of Men's Athletic
Committee and maintains  a   first   class
standing. Ron lives in
Acadia Camp with his
wife and son.
It is with complete
confidence in his abil-.
ity that I second the
nomination of Ron
Bray for the position
of president of the
Alma Mater Society.
Walter Young, Arts 4
The position of USC
Chairman requires a
man who has had
committee e x p e r i-
ence. Dave Hemphill
is that man.
He has served two
years on the High
School Conference
Committee, and this
year is chairman of
that Committee.
Dave is a third year
Arts student majoring
in Math and Physics.
In his three years on
campus he has always
been active in sports
and this year is a
member of-the Men's
Athletic    Directorate
and  manager  of  the
tennis team.
If you want a man
who has the ability,
interest, and   experi-
Dave
Hemphill
ence to serve the students on their council,
vote Dave Hemphill
for  USC Chairman.
Ted Lee, Law 3
The reason I have
seconded the nomination of Neville Trevor, Arts 3, for
Chairman of the Undergraduates Societies Committee, i s
that I am deeply impressed by his mature
and practical outlook
on all matters pertaining to our University.
Neville Trevo r,
when elected to this
office, will bring with
him the experience of
an older student; he
is 25—plus the tact
end diplomacy which
he gained as a registered psychiatric
nurse. This training
alone should qualify
him to sit on. any
Student Council.
He is an active and
valuable member of
the P a r 1 i a mentary
Forum, and in addition, is a good athlete,
who plays on UBC
rugger  team.
Neville
Trevor
Therefore. I feel
very secure in nominating Neville Trevor
for the position of
USC Chairman.

The success of this week-end's
Bellingham invasion remains in
doubt, as bus ticket sales are
moving slowly, and the number
of cars travelling to the Southern
city   is   not   known.
A Pacific Stages Bus, chartered for the trip, still has 40 empty seats, despite ticket booths in
the AMS office, Quad, and Men's
liym every noon-hour. Price is
S2.50 return, and the bus leaves
the downtown depot at 5:30 on
Saturday.
The extent of car transportation, another worried look in
Mike JetTcrics' eye, cannot be

More Riot Action
Coming- President
Further action will be taken on the recent Engineer riots,
President Norman A. M. Mackenzie announced Thursday.
"Faculty Council is requesting
the persons charged by the student court to appear before its
disciplinary committee in the
near future," Dr. Mackenzie
said.
"In addition," he stated, "the
executive representatives of the
organizations involved will be
asked to appear before the
council."
The President said that the
council which acts as a student
faculty go-between in matters of
this sort had approved the report of the student court.
"The council particularly commended the student court's action in allocating the damages
to both parties involved, 30 pet-
cent to the Publications Board
and 70 per cent to the Engineering Undergraduate Society."
Total damages from the riots
which included three raids on
the Publications Board offices
and the fracas in the War Memorial gym were assessed at $110.

Prime Minister Johann Stoyva's CCF Government retained
power in Arts 100 at noon yesterday as their bill for government-planned development of

Versatile Walt Young, claiming to represent the Liberals,
Conservatives and Independents,
told the rapt Parliament how
the Industrial Development
Bank (set up by a previous administration), put his Wagon
Wheel Manufacturing Co on its

Patent infringment was claimed by Jim Macfarlane, LPP

"Put Canada First" as its slogan

to push through the bill to set
up a Canadian Industrial Commission.
CCF minister Roy Officer

"similar government planning is

HELEN  McLEAN
—Secretary
'twMit dosses
By SANDY ROSS
The first member of next year's Student Council was
elected by acclamation Thursday afternoon when only one
student was nominated for the position of AMS Secretary.
Elected was Helen McLean, a
third year Commerce student
from Trail, whose only regret is
thta her nomination was not
contested.
Three other nominations for
secretary had been filed in the
AMS office Thursday, but all
were removed before the four
o'clock deadline. Two girls reconsidered because of other activities; the third girl was unaware of her nomination.
$100,000   TO   SPEND
Helen is Secretary of the
Commerce Undergraduate Society, President of Kappa Kappa
Gamma Sorority, Activities
Chairman on the Pan Hellenic
Council and a Don at Mary Bollert Hall.
Other offices on the first election slate are sparsely contested, .
with   two candidates   for   each
position. &
COMMERCE  SECRETARY
NFCUS President Jim Craig
and AMS Treasurer Ron Bray,
both in Second Year Law, are
vieing for the vitally important
position of President of the Alma
Mater Society.
Next 'year's AMS President
will have a large share of the
responsibility for deciding how
over $100,000 of student monies
will be spent.
The post of Undergraduates
Societies Committee Chairman
is being contested by Third Year
Arts Student Neville Trevor and
Dave Hemphill, this year's
High School Conference Chairman.
As USC Chairman, the successful candidate would head a
committee that represents powerful student interests, and b-
strong enough to seriously contest the authority of Student
Council  in student affairs.
An election rally will be hold
Monday noon in the Auditorium
where first-slate candidates and
their seconders will deliver their
campaign speeches to tho student
body.
Grass-roots stumping will bo

Just A  Lark?
Maybe the $100,000 business of the Alma Mater Society
runs itself, but we sometimes wish that Student Council
would be taken more seriously.
The approaching student elections are being regarded
with the usual carelessness; one post has already been taken
by acclamation. Others will doubtless be filled the same way.
That's student lethargy, and it's deplorable.
But something oven more offensive was seen as the
nomination Reriod closed Thursday—plain contempt for the
whole business.
While one student scurried about Brock Hall attempting
ot collect signatures for a candidate* at a moment's notice,
three candidates already nominated suddenly withdrew from
their respective contests.
The' thoughtless signature-gatherer might be excused,
since he was attempting to prevent a position being filled
by acclamation.
However, we would ask the coy candidates what turn of
events suddenly prompted them to withdraw? Was there
a death in the family? Did they decide not to return to school
next year?
Apparently, they withdrew because of some mere whim.
We can only conclude that they originally decided to run with
the same carelessness.
.; Which makes us wonder about the motives of tbe other
candidates.

AGRICULTURE   EDITORIAL
Food For Thought
Through the work of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations we now have available facts
and figures with respect to the extent of starvation and malnutrition in the world. We know that millions of people never
get enough to eat and that much larger numbers, although
not actually hungry, do not get the kind of diet necessary
for health. We are thus becoming increasingly conscious of
the broad problems involved in the adequate feeding of an
expanding world population.
Among us there are those who are quick to point out
that through the achievements of science and technical development we will continue to add to our potential food
supply and eliminate most of the grounds for anxiety that at
present beset us with respect to the adequacy of the world
food supply. On the other hand there are those who have
given serious study to the food and population problem who
prophesy doom for much" of mankind unless the rate of
population growth is drastically checked.
Whatever the ultimate answer may be to this number
one world problem, it is now, and will continue to be for some
time to come, the task of the farmer to produce the greater
portion of the primary materials needed to feed the increasing number of the world's peoples.
This greatly expanded agricultural production will not
come about automatically but will require international planning and organization to provide not only for the extensive
use of the available and rapidly-increasing resources of
science and technology in the fields of production and of conservation but to provide also fot» the proper marketing of the
farmer's products.
The diversity of circumstances which determine the varying efficiency of agriculture in different countries seems at
times to render unlikely the finding of a real solution to the
problem. However, if wo can agree one one major objective—
to bring stability to agriculture and thus lessen the difficulties associated with the low elasticity of supply and demand for agricultural products as well as the difficulties relating lo factors in production outside the farmer's control,
such, for instance, as climate and disease—then and only then
am we expect to use to our best advantage, through the benefits of increased education, tho knowledge becoming available to us which will ensure to everyone n equal measure
the nutritional improvement of life which has been made possible through the advances of science.

Murder is never .pretty. Murder is a thing that flys shrieking into your guts, and buries
itself in your liver, wfth a soft
sickening, sound.
She was lying there on the
bed, still beautiful even in
death. She almost looked as
though she were sleeping, except that her torso was sleeping in the bathtub. Murder is
never pretty.
O'Flnnegan   turned   to
it's the  same old  story,
same old story," he said.
"You mean about the farmer's daughter and the toothless wombat?"
"Yeah, he left hil false teeth
in a glass of water on the night
table and.. • "
I cut him short with a pistol
butt in the mouth* that left it
a gaping red wound in his face.
The bone glisened whitely in
the bloody cavern.
"Enough chit-chat. Who do
you think did it?"
"Gieeb," he burbled.
"Speak up, man" I said,
"Don't mumble."
He spat two teeth on the carpet. "Someday you'll go too
far," he spluttered.
I looked at the teeth, and
suddenly I knew. I knew the
kind of rat that feeds on the
slime and filth of the city, and
preys on clean-cut kids from
Tennessee and Kansas and
Iowa- The kind of rat that one
day would have his throat laid
open, and the windpipe shrieking for the air that will never
come again, clawing and clawing—and dying like a rat.
"Let's go get him O'Finne-
gan," I said. But before we
could move O'Finnegan's secretary burst into the room, her
hair was the color of ripe corn
and the rest of her was even
riper.
"I've come," she murmered,
slowly running a long painted
fingernail up and down my
spine.
Every bump made my hormones do push-ups.
(Because of space limitations due to the Agriculture
Edition, we must leave our
heroes hormones doing calisthenics until next week. Per*

re   Course   Offers   Travel
By M. DAVID HYNARD
Still looking for one unit to
round out next year? How
about a course that includes a
week-long trip to the Interior?
Here's just the thing for you,
then: Agriculture 300, the progressive course that gives
"book larnin" an invaluable
practical foundation, besides
showing you all manner of jobs
to think'about as graduation
nears.
Just two years old, this
brain-child of B.C. Professional Agriculturists—and it's the
only course no one ever tried
to skip — softens summer-end
sighs as 3rd-year Aggies and
Aggettcs takes a chartered bus
for the 1000-mile hayride
through B.C. to see many different types of farming, as well
as some of the food-processing
plants that keep our palates a-
tickle, with a liberal dash of
scientific research stations
sprinkled at strategic points.
Sponsored jointly by the BC.
Institute of Agrologists and the
Faculty of Agriculture, and led
by Drs. "Alouette" Harris and
"Encyclopoedia" Brink, last
year's foray into the B.C. backwoods first fell upon the gush-
ink milkwells of the Fraser
Valley and their attendant factories.
Latest figures, show that of
the total of 44,072 boxes of
first-grade butter produced in
all Canada in the year ended
November 27, 1954, 40,064
boxes, or 99%, came out of this
Sardis plant.

Range management and irrigated pasture trials at Kamloops Range Station were demonstrated, and then camp pitched for the night by Little Shus-

this night made forever immortal as the strains of "How Are

to accompany the historic collapse of Dr. Harris' bed.
Next morning, Salmon Arm
Co-operutivo Cheese Factory
received undivided attention—
they turn out ice cream here as
well! The Interior Provincial
Exhibition at Armstrong received a cursory glance, followed a Pea Growers' cannery
where reliable sources inform
us a cyclotron will soon be installed to speed up production
of split peas.
Trout Creek congregation
the following morning conferred honrary professorships in
Food Technology on itinerant
(not Safeway) culinarist Charlie Butcher, and in Agricultural Mechanics on Chauffeur
Tom Mairs, and, after short
stops at irrigation and machinery demonstrations, the party
sank into the ruddy West.
Soon the majestic portals of
Fort Camp hove into view, to
be deluged with apples, pears,
apricots, peaches, and dented
canned goods of all description
flowing from the Okanagan
cornoeupia.
But that's not quite the end.

UBC Chickens
Take Crack At
Ovoid Barrier
You may not expect to find
a soup-kitchen at UBC, but that's
what the Poultry Department is
running.
Well—if it's not soup, at any
rate there's a regular line-up of
pheasants and blackbirds from
the avian skid row in the bush
dropping around for their morning mash.
But don't go away with the
idea there's a Social Agency
here; they have greater concerns than unemployed pheasants. You see, the poultry industry has reached an apparent
ceiling of egg production, and
all attempts so far to increase
output beyond this point have
been repulsed with increasing
frustration. This is in spite of
a rocketing average egg-laying
from 80 per annum in 1917 in the
U.S.A. to around 240 today.
This problem is being attacked at UBC from two directions:
Nutrition, under Dr. Jacob Biely,
and genetics and breedln, under
Dr. Amp Hicks.
"The effect of stib-minimal
diet on offspring" entails restricting the intake of particular
nutrients by the hen, and then
studying any consequent effect
on hatching rate, and growth of
the consequent chicks.
Dr. Hicks' "pigeon" seems to
be finding flaws in Gregor Men-
rel's theory as he experiments
wth new mating systems. Together with these tests, the embryo is subjected to temperature
and chemical stresse by applying
extraordinary temperature combinations and by varied doses of
insulin.
So who knows? Maybe there's
another record coming to the
Aggie Faculty at UBC: Owners
of "the first hen to crack the
ovoid barrier"?

Erudite Aggie Student
Flies East As Winner
By ,1. CROSBY COLLINS
A free return flight to Toronto, dinner at th eRoyal York
Hotel, hockey at the Maple Leaf Gardens, luncheon at the
"Old Mill", night clubs—everything absolutely free, just for
writing a short essay on the marketing of livestock and livestock products^ in Canada.
The main purpos e ofthe trip
■   f
is to familiarize contest winners
with a leading packing house
and meat processing operations,
and also to give students talks
on particular aspects of this complex "middleman" service.
I was lucky enough to top the
UBC entrants, and- a valuable
part of the trip is meeting the
other winners from the rest of
the agricultural colleges across
Canada- I had a lot of fun trying out my French on Quebec
students, and they brought out
their best English, but it's not
known how much eiher side understood.
We stayed at the brand-new
Sunnyside Motel, and you're not
told what time you have to get
up in the morning, but the programme "expects you all to be
ready to start the Day's ar-
rangeemnts at 8 a.m." This takes
some doing after a night watching the "Maple Leafs" play the
"Canadiens", but it's more than
worth it, and you can rest up on
the return plane, anyway(?)

Did you realize that Very few
Aggie graduates actually go
farming?
Nevertheless, all are entitled
to put "P. Ag." with "B.S.A."
after their names, thereby indicating full membership In the
B.C. Institute of Agrologists, an
affiliate in the B.C. Institute of
Agrologists, an affiliate of the
Agricultural Institute of Canada.
("Agrology," for those who don't
have Greek, means "the study
of agricultural matters.")
PROBATION
On graduation, a student becomes an "Agrologist-in-Training," and three years later, after
fulfilling the requirements of a
board of examiners, becomes a'
ful-fledged Practising Agrologist.

Birds- Western
Play Twin Bill
Varsity Basketball returns to the campus this Friday after
a three-week absence.
UBC's opponent will be Western Washington from Bellingham. Over the past few seasons,
Western's team has shared the
bottom slot in the league with
UBC. This year they are rated
slightly  higher than  Varsity.
TWO WINS
Western's record of two conference wins against four losses
Swimmers
To Splash
At UofW
The swimming team—perhaps
the strongest one to ever represent UBC—journeys to Seattle
next Saturday, January 5 to
splash against U. of Washington
frosh.
Bob Bagshaw and Don McLennan, smashers of three Varsity free-style records each, in
their last meet, will set their
sights on higher records.
WILL COMPETE
Breastrokers Gerry Van Tets
and Brian Harvey will compete
as well as Doug Kilburn and
team manager "Fishy" Young.
In all events UBC rates strongly,
and should stand a fair chance
against the water conscious
Washers.
In diving—Varsity's supposedly week link—Don Francis turned out to be a cast iron shackle.
In the last competition h^ stunned several "cxperst" by his
superlative   form.
A  WINNAH
He won hi.s event, and looked every inch a champion. Diving is not the headache il was
once thought to be.
Coach Max Howell is well
pleased with his acquarium so
far, and is almost tempted to s<>
out on a limb in predicting
their future chances. A cautious
Scottish nature holds him back.
Straits of .Juan de Fuca next.
Grasshockey
All At Home
line's two grasshockey loams
will play each other tins week
end at Varsity. Varsity will be
attempting to rise after a !M)
loss last week and UHC will bo
after an extension of their une
game   win   streak. i
places them in fourth position
while UBC with one win in five
starts is holding down last place.
While UBC was practising last
weekend, the Bellingham team
was clobbered on successive evenings by Eastern 81-59, and
Whitworth 73-57.
HUNGRY LADS
As you may see by those scores
the Vikings will certainly be
every bit as hungry for a win
as the Thunderbirds.
According to the record, Varsity has a good chance of jumping into fourth slot if they can
dump Western here Friday night,
nnd repeat the performance in
Bellingham on Saturday night
during   the   INVASION.
There will be a prelim al
fi:4") and half-time entertainment.
SCULLERS   OFFER
TICKETS TO 6IRLS
The Rowing Club will be
giving free tickets tonight to
the basketball game to every
girl who shows herself at the
gym door. At least they will
be till they run out of tickets.
The object is to attract girls
to attract males to the dance
the scullers are holding after
the basketball game. Dance
admission is 50 cents per.

Birds  Battle Vancouver
For McKechnie Honours
<$>
Former   Underdogs
Now  Win  Favourites
By PETE WORTHINGTON
Last fall there were few of the local rugger fans who gave
UBC Thunderbirds much of a chance to win the McKechnie
Cup in '55. They would have sooner bet on the chances of a
hot-dog satisfying the appetite of Babe Ruth.
However   the   improbable —t —	
rugger-wise if not hot-dog-wise
has been done. Dark-horse Birds
are now rated almost an even
prospect of upsetting the powerful Vancouver Reps at 2 p.m.
this Saturday in the Owen Bowl
for the historic trophy.
SLAUGHTERING
In the light of their recent
slaughterings of North Shore
(24-6 in comparison to Reps' 6-0
victory), and Oak Bay (16-3), Albert's renamed Thunderjets are
flying high. Also Birds will be
playing a tfull strength for once.
Vancouver's George J?uil, John
Morrison and Denny Veitoh,
stars though they may be, will
be matched pace-for-pace by the
likes of Varsity's Whirlaway
Newton, Jim McNicol and Bill
Whyte (Birds' only manied
father)-
VENERATED
The McKechnie Cup is one of
B.C.'s, if not Canada's oldest and
most    venerable   prizes.   Since
local  Indo  China,  Formosa  or
something.
This is the beginning of the
sooper-dooper r u gg e r repast,
which will see two Varsity
games against California, two

Oxford - Cambridge, and one
noon-hour Braves-Chiefs February 17th tilt. Some onions,
OTHER GAMES
In other weekend games,
some-times - playing - coach Don
Coryell and his blurbs face the
rugged Blue Bombers in Douglas Park at 1:18 p.m. If Blurbs
survive Bombers, they'll likely
challenge Oxford-Cambridge.
Tomahawks take the warpath
against Braves at Varsity in the
other Carmiohael Cup fixture.
That is, if there is a field left to
play on, since "construction"
work is rapidly destroying Albert's territorial holdings-
But the Owen Bowl is fine.
Come out Saturday at 2 p.m. and
watch the best rugger team in
 Sports Editor—KEN LAMB	
Varsity   To   Play
Last   Ditch   Match
Varsity's most important soccer game of the season will
be played this Sunday at South Memorial Park, when Varsity
take on last-place Dominion Hotel in an attempt to push the
Hotelmen into the relegation matches with the Third Division,
while Chiefs play VGH on the campus.
THE "IF"
If Varsity wins they will put
five points between them and
last place Dominions. Hotel will
find it virtually impossible to
catch up if they lose. A win for
Dominions would leave only one
point between them and Varsity.
With a tough schedule of games
against Pilseners, CPR, Royal
Oaks and Halecos; Varsity would
then have trouble holding their
lead.
Varsity's hope for victory centre around high-scoring Bruce
Ashdown and speedy Stan Glas
gow. Then entire team will be
throwing everything in against
the equally determined Dominions.
STRENGTH LACK
Varsity's lack of strength in
thc middle of their forward line
will be their main weakness. But
coach Ed Luckett is hoping for
a good game from Ashdown
who should provide the difference.
Chiefs, in their game, will be
shooting to make up for their
poor  showing  last week.
