French speaking students of
Ottawa University successfully
inaugurated the first in a series

Political Speech
Rights Denied
Frank Davis, former University
feculty. member and practicing psychologist, was recently denied speaking privilege on the UCLA campus
because of alleged "political beliefs."
Bill Davidson, administrative assistant to the UCLA dean ofstudents.
explained that the Administration's
rejection lay in the possibility that
Davis was a "Communist," according
to Bob Shelley, chairman of the sponsoring group, Council for Student
Unity. .
THis was the first case of its kind
since the revision of controversial
Regulation 17 in July of this year.
Shelley saSid that Davidson tdld
him that presumably no persons could
bo invited whose ideas and aims ran
counter to the aims and purposes
of the University as stated in the
standing order of Regents.

Student Backing May Underwrite
' Council Assistance Refusal
Tim, Hollick-Kenyon, once resigned chairman of the committee planning a welcome for Austrian student folk dancers,
has returned to his post.
Hollick-Kenyon resigned Monday
night when Student Council refused
to back a reception for thc students.
Council was asked to put up (50 for a
reception but they felt it wasn't necessary.
Treasurer Walt Ewing,« yesterday
stated that even if Council didn't
put up the money he would bet five
to one that there would be a reception
of some type.
"For all I know gome big industrialist will put up the need money,'' lie
"A igroup of interested students are
intending to underwrite the reception." said Junior Council Member
Peter deVooght, "if council does not
Come through.''
"We will have a reception, regardless,'  he said.
A number of students approached
Hollick-Kenyon Tuesday suggesting
that he return as Chairman of the
committee. He did not feel that he
should after he resigned but when
he heard of the student backing he
rescinded his original stand.

Advertising Battle
Takes New Turn
TORONTO-(CUP)-A battle of long
standing over the amount of advertising in The Varsity, student newspaper
at the University of Toronto, which
culminated in the resignation of the
editor-in-chief and al! senior staffers
last week, took a new turn yesterday
when the Studerots Administrative
Council passed a motion clearly indicating that the whole paper was to be
under "the direction and discretion"
of the editor-in-chief.
At the same time the council reinstated editor-in-chief Stan Filmore,
thus reversing its decision last week
to accept his resignation.
For some time the student body has
objected to the large amount of advertising in the paper and the staff
has been objecting to the system
whereby a business manager who is a
non-student had considerable say in
the advertising.
When the editor pulled two small
ads from a special issue at 3:30 in the
morning without tbe permission of the
council's business manager, the council passed a motion which Ln effect
gave the business manager almost 50
percent contrtd over "the paper.
Tire   staff   therefore   resigned   and
i  the   council   voted   9-2   to   accept   the
I'esiglUti in,  with  1,1 councillors  either
..b.sent of abstaining.
TY\e proposed revision effects few
actual changes.
Quorums for general meetings would
be 20 per cent of the student body
Instead one third as at present.
Power of Student Council to amend
the constitution by unanimous vote
would be removed.
Some of the "unnecessary verbiage"
removed from the bylaws include the
Constitution of USC and regulations
concerning social functions.
"These have no place in the bylaws," stated Cummings.
Election and nominating procedure
have been made uniform. Powers of
Student Council, are clarified.
Constitution Revision Committee
was-xcomposed of Frank Collier, Bill
Mitchell, George Cumming, Bob
Piercy and Dick Azuma.
'Thi; committee has done one of
the most constructive pieces of work
on the campus('declared AMS president Jim Sutherland. "It changes the
constitution from an unworkable mess
into a workable code."
The proposed constitution will be
published in the Ubyssey before the
Marclvl5 general AMS meeting. Students who wish to submit amende
ments should turn them into Kay
McDonald, AMS Secretary, at least
a  day before the general meeting.
Comm Functions
Go Over Top
Enthusiastic Commerce students
turned out irt force this year to make
the most of their social functions.
The Fall Dance in the Hotel Georgia, and the Sprang Formal at the
Panorama Roof of the Hotel Vancouver, were both oversold. Both affairs
were enlivened by the peal of bag
pipes in the hands of John Macfcin-
non. Dance Committee members L.
Chilsholm, T. Jefferson, Mary Dene-
si uk and J. McKinnon earned the
gratitude of all Commerce students.
Graduation Banquet was successfully managed by Rand Evans, M.
Morrison, G. Brooker, L. Mcfteod and
A. Solloway. Publicity was handled
by R. W. Stevens.

Key To Success Only In
Hard Work Says Adaskin
Anyone who wants to understand or play music must be
willing to do a great deal of heart-breaking, back-breaking
work, Professor Harry Adaskin, head of UBC's Music Department, told a student's meeting Thursday noon,
The professor, speaking in the series<5>
of Fine Arts lectures, said that cre
ative work, of which music is an
example, is the only- kind of work
which really  matters.
"The chief difference between hu-
rr.eins ?nd other animals is that there
is something about art which is necessary to human life,'' he stated.
Professor Adaskin, an eminent pub-
lie speaker, told his audience that
art. is the highest and most profound
ability   of   which   the   human   spirit
j is capable.
"Music   is   a   language   of   it's   own
! which  tykes over where words leave

Lethargy Among Artsmen
Arts Undergraduate Society, displaying
$ts usual impotent lethargy, has wound up
with a president elected by acclamation. Considering the dearth of nominees for other
executive positions, the AUS might well be
deeply thankful that it got a president at all.
The Ubyssey has, from time to time,
launched forth on tirades against the sometimes childish escapades of the Engineers.
But it myst be conceded that they, at least,
have organization. Law students, too, and
even aggies and pre-meds are able to muster
sound working organizations.
A brisk fight seems to be underway for
the privilege of leading mercenary Commerce-
Why, then, are the Artsmen in so dire
a position?
Perhaps part of the reason lies in the
ever-present excuse that Artsmen, after all,
have little in common. It is easy to see that
a zoologist and a philosopher are at opposite
ends of the academic arena.
Artsmen, in fact, are a vast conglomer
ation which, taken as a whole, makes no better pattern thah a patch-work quilt.
Still, Artsmen ought .to have certain
interests in common: art, literature, music,,,
drama, and collective lethargy at least. Alas,
however, these interests are also held by an
Engineer here and there and even, upon
occasion, by a Commerceman. Then, too,
many a physicist scarcely knows Picass.p from
Perhaps the apparent truth is that organization of students.by faculties is not, after
all, too effective. Perhaps it is not even too
intelligent. It might be the ca§e that students
ought to be organized solely by extra-curricular activities and the Undergraduate Societies Committee should be replaced by a Student organizations' council.
' If Artsmen, the largest group on the
campus, persist in their lethargy such a change
may become inevitable.
• In any case, it is.a matter worthy of
some considerable thought.
The New AMS Constitution
A group of hard-working students have
completed the gigantic task of revising UBC's
apparently unworkable constitution. Many
changes have been made which should clear
up many of the foggy elements that have
clouded student government in previous
yearg. „
The four students who have given of their
time are to be congratulated for wading
through what was doubtless reams of complicated and involved language. Their efforts
have cleared up many a misty point that previously plagued councillors.
Before students can have a new constitution though, they must approve it at tho
forthcoming general meeting March 15. Student Council has already suggested many
changes in the new constitution which are
now being inserted.
Before"the general meeting the Ubyssey
will endeavour to print the revised constitution. Students who are interested in their
government and how it is run should make
an effort to tackle the new document even
if many parts of it are admittedly dull.
If students can suggest further sensible
amendments to the new constitution it will
show they are beginning to take a more
healthy interest in the workings of student

Dandruff Aimoui No  heat As
Banham Digs Up New Philosophy
"What's special about Samson and
Delilah? I've read some reviews and they
all think the picture stinks. I'd like to
say so too, but not for $1.25."
—Ubyssey Columnist Jim Banham
Surprising what ideas you can dig up
when you're rooting around down there, eh,
I've admired your column ("In This
Corner") for a long time. From This Corner,
you always come out swinging, and you
rarely foul us in the cliches.
I like the open-mindedness with which
you refer to pictures you haven't seen.
But this time you've outdone yourself.
This time you've hit on a principle that could
change Our Way of Life, Save the World
from Bolshevism and Remove Dandruff Without the Use of Harmful Ingredients.
Without seeing' the picture, you have
labelled Samson and Delilah a run of deMille
Your principle, James, could be used
to help us all toward a philosophy that only

Letters To The Editor
Editor, Dear Sir:
It is the opinion of the Student
Peace Movement that the strikingly'
illogical edit<$al in % February
28th issue of the Ufeypsey entitled
"Wake Up Peace Movement" calls
for an answer from our organization.
Although we have been repeatedly
attacked ln your editorial columns a
number of our replies and letters have
gone unpublished and we therefore
feel that an opportunity to answer
should be given to us.
Vjfe, together wjth ithe writer of this
editorial, ere more than a little disturbed by the production of monstrous weapons of mass destruction
btft unlike hln» we are determined to
do something about it.
We have in the brief term of our
existence sponsored two study groups
on the control of atomic energy and
one on the North Atlantic pact. We
have presented a number of speakers
whose messages have undoubtedly
stimulated much though. We will in
the future do all within our power to
work for an amiable solution to the
problems of the world, be they ideal-
ological, economic or political.
However, we are not Ivory tower
thinkers and we hold that there is lit-
tie or no comfort in knowing as you
are being wiped out by an H bomb
blast that yuo have been thinking
about the solution to these problems.
More rational thinking can be done
by the whole of'mankind when this
menace hanging over their heads has
been removed, and we are doing all
those things, within our own power,
whether they are small or large things
in or$sr to remove this menace. Asking people to sign a petition to ban
the bomb in all countries and asking
for international control pf this menace may seem like, a small thing to
some but when our government is
presented with a petition signed by
tens and hundreds of thousands of
Canadians calling upon them to su-
press for international control in the
United Nations it becomes more important. It becomes even more im
portant when you realize the size and
magnitude of the peace movement;
when you realize that fifteen million
signatures for peace have hees collected in France, a figure wjhich represents a third of the population of
that country; seven and a haU million in Italy and similar numbers in
other countries.
This movement for peace will go
on and increase in strength in spite of
those who try to suppress it and in
spite of thise who pretend to be
well wishers but nevertheless sneer
at those who actually do something
about peace . . . even it it is "only
running around the campus with
sheafs of paper."
Yours very sincerely,
Pres. Student Peace

Raw Deal
The Department of Commerce on tl)ls campus is definitely getting a raw
Instead of having a building of out .own, we* have to be content wUh a>
ftfv army-type huts situated in an Insignificant puet of tiie campus. The importance oi a conjnie>ce department, especially hi w industrial province,
like B.C., cannot be underestimated.
The B-Comm. degree from UBC has become recog«l*cd by the business
werld as one of the best in Canada. Eastern business men arc becoming,
mere aware of tbe excellent training given Commerce students at UBC
and consequently are employing graduates from here even in preference to
Eastern university graduates.
We recall that the Home Economics deportment got a new building not
very long ago. Although we appreciate the fact that tbe Home Economies de-
partment ii a necessity to any university cuflrkuliwn, wc de tcsr that a Commerce department deserves better recognition by the Administration.
We cannot help but think that we also might get a building If our Commerce huts were to burn down. Commerce students should combine In a campaign to press tor bldjdtog" which would help to further the Commerce department's consolidation programme.
Greatest Beef
One of the greatest beefs that Comnieriec $t#df»}Js )f<We is that we arc
without » study mm »W©r 4 ».nt- every evening.
It always seems that we are forced out of our "private" study just when
o marketing report is one paragraph from completion or a piraotlpp sgt we cent
frem balancing. 	
We have boon tojd that the rcpson for closing the room at 4 p.m. is because
the janitor ie responsible lor its closing before he goes home for the evening.
We also are told that there is a great fhe hazard there, with which we ore
in complete Agreement.
We appreciate the attitude adopted by the Commerce Department butt
we would suggest that smoking be banned in the study room and we further
suggest that the night watchman be the Mthorlzed person to lock up at night.
With final exams just six weeks off, we feel that our study room should remain often as long as possible for the convenience of Commerce students who
find thi library loo stuffy for concentration (and who doesn't).
Rather than walk the distance to the Library from the Commerce Huts we
would rather stay in thc HG vicinity where students who have a common vocational interest can study in an atmosphere that they understand and appreciate.

has been ea carefulJy developed in
the past by former students.
I will endeavour te increase the
internet of Commerce students in their

become a strong, united body. As a
former member of the Arts Undergraduate Society, I can well appreciate
the necessity of having a unified
student association.
I will pledge lull support to the
Alma Mater Society, and will work
in dose cooperation w'vth other student organisations on the campus.
Jeffrey Pruner
As Pre&'.der.t I would .try to perform my duties conscienciously. If
I am elected I will endeavour to:

and administration in carrying out
the functions of the Commerce Undergraduate Society.

Will endeavour to increase the interest
of Commerce students in affairs of
their Society, and to make Commerce
students* more familiar with one another.
I will propose that the Commerce
Undergraduate Society sponsor a
Commerce mixer during the Fall Term
with the purpose of enabling Commerce students and those com'ing into
Commerce to get acquainted. I believe
that Commerce students, with their
inherent intelligence, initiative, and
excellent   training   can   become   the
Varied Career
Prof. Morrow Leaves Depaitment
The Commerce Department will be
wOthout its mentor when the next
term commences in September. Professor Morrow, head of the department
since its foundation in 1939, will retire at the end of the current year.
Alumni and undergraduates who
have come under his guidance will
regret the loss.
From a small beginning Profesor
Morrow has bu'ilt a department second
to none at URC; B.Cpnw. graduates
from here have earned admiration
and achievement not only in this
Province but throughout every Province in Canada.
To his friends Prof. Morrow is a
gentleman, a scholar and a very sinceiv
friend. Commerce students, their problems and their ambitions, have always
bean uppermost in his mind and he
always finds time to help a student
who needs a boost.
It is regretable (that the Commerce
Department has not graduated to the
status of a Faculty while Professor
Mourow was in charge.
However, it lis felt Hhat the importance pf Hhe dfepaillment will
force the issue in- the not too distant
The main chosen (to succeed Professor
Morrow  is  Mr.  E.  D.   MacFoe  who
comes here to take over the department on July 1.
Mr. MacFee has had a varied career
both in England and Canada. He received his university education at
Acadia University and at the University of Edinburgh and received his
M.A. and B.Ed, degrees from the
Following that he taught at Acadia,
Practical economic s
Alberta and Toronto Universities.
From teaching, Mr. MacFee moved
into the business world and occupied
numerous positions on English and
Canadian firms.
He comes to UBC from Alginate Industries Ltd., a pioneer chemical
company, where he was Managing

and effectively check the Applied
Science menace. I can personally ap-
piwWte title sterling Qualities of
Comnwwcemen, having once bed the
misfortune of belonging to the Engineering Undergraduate Society.
Specifically, I would press for more
Commerce activity, such as sports, to
/promote spirit within the students
of ihe Commerce Department, and so

Undergroduate Society « thing for all
its members to be proud of.

My programme is based mainly on
my experience as Treasurer W tfrie
Font Gamp Student's Committee for
the past year. During this time I have
guided the financial 'policies of the
Fort Camp Canteen, which did a
fl5i00fl business in the 1948-49 term,
and also administered fhe Fort Camp
Kind account. I feel that this experience would assist me in doing a good
job as Treasurer. If I am elected I
will cooperate to the fullest extent
with the other members of the.exeeu-
tive in working to make a stnmgsr flnd
morb u. lited Commerce Uridepgraduate

make the most efficient use of available funds. Therefore I ask for your
support on thte 8th pf March.
John Hutton
In running for the position of
Treasurer of the Commerce Undergraduate Society, I will make it my
first duty to carry out the elected
presidents financial policy, provided
that it is feasible and equitable to the
students at large. Furthermore, I will
consider it my bound duty to issue
imports at regular intervals concerning
the financial operations of the above
For the past two years I have served
ns President of the University band
and in such capacity I have gained
valuable knowledge of AMS procedure. As an accounting major, I consider that I am fuljy competent to carry out the job of Treasurer successfully, if elected. In conclusion I
would like to stress that my main objective is to see that every student
will get his fair share of the funds
nvailable for student activities.
May We Suggest...

problems which Commercemen are
likely to meet soon after graduation.

course on the control of family production.

who show distinct sigrts of shrewdness. Among matters discussed will
be those of how to deal with petuant

Candidates for vice-president are
Dick Chong and Ed Bissell. Both contestants are adding spice to the election with novel campaign stunts.
Treasurer candidate- Ian DesBrisay
offers a sucesful record as treasurer
of Fort Camp and promises efficient
administration of CUS funds.
His opponent, John Hutton> twice

administration of all CUS funds.
Five  candidates  will  contest  two
