 ONE REASON why Varsity Revue went over big with
a packed house of spectators last night was shapely Terrie
Hare, the student 4,body" who is shown with Pat Brown
and Tom Shorthouse in the Board of Governors skit.
DIG THAT CRAZY SHIRT! The man underneath it
is Dr. N. A, M. MacKenzie, who made his .theatrical debut
in Varsity Revue. Helping him litter the library lawn with
refuse is librarian Neal Harlow, left, and Dean Chant, right.
PROFESSOR BARNEY POTTS illustrates the fine
points of his assistant, cute little Jean Francis during his
hilarious "The Chicken or the Egg" act. Tiie Revue continues tonight and Saturday in 'the auditorium.

Council OK's
A revamped LPP club constitution passed Student Council
with hardly a question Monday,
in startling contrast to the stormy
session at which the original
policies were thrown back to
club executives for re-construction.
The new constitution does not
include statements of policy borrowed from the national Labor
Progressive party to which Council had then hesitated to approve
on grounds of implicating itself
with LPP policies.

Full House Thrilled By Revue
hy Dirk Dolman
Tremendous enthusiasm plus
"Brains and Brawn" in production of UBC's first Varsity Revue Thursday night climaxed
in a smashing success.
The Blue and Gold show got
six curtain calls from first-
nighters who jammed into the
auditorium Thursday   night.
Months of preparation and
weeks of rehearsal under directors Dorothy Somerset and
Phil Keatley made a dream
come true for the hard working sltulenls, four faculty members, three profession.il stars,
a janitor and UBC president
Dr. Norman MacKenzie
Popular Dr. MacKenzie stole
the show as he danced witli a
pretty freshette in his long-
heralded stage debut.
Much publicized effort and
ingenuity contributed by almost every faculty on the campus ami hilarious songs, skits
and music all accented by colorful coilinnes rind dance numbers produced the sell out
Strongest criticism of the
show is based nol so much on
tiie individual enthusiasm
which every cast member put
into his role, but rather on certain transitional phases between number:- und skits.
Although some parts of the
show dragged because of loose
stage action, many of the dance
numbers and group activities
showed great promise and re
quired only a little polish to
make the actions smooth and
Last skit of Ihe show dwells
on the theme "Brains and
Brawn" in a stadium scene
which closes with every 'member of  the cast  on stage.
The idea of uniting brains
and brawn in a ;.;roup endeavor
as in this ski! and as in the
whole Revue worked out very
However,   too  many  biains
might have been one of the
factors in preparation of the
show which contributed to its
weak spots,
In two or tliree skits there
was evidence of confliction of
ideas. We have in mind ns an
example the Totem Park scene
where a long dramatic rendezvous between two moon-struck

iu front of strictly burlesque
style totem poles. Stage lighting was al fault here too.

Pranksters Hurt University
(Reprinted from The
It's time certain University of B.C. students did some responsible thinking about
where their "high spirits" can lead.
Reports of mass demonstrations, interference with citizens' cars, clashes with police,
campus tomato throwing and other prankish
disorders could easily hurt UBC and students
of today and tomorrow.
UBC desperately needs more money for
the permanent buildings it still lacks, to hold
its fine faculty together with better salaries,
to expand and improve the courses it offers.
Most of the money must come from the provincial government.
Just A Teacher'
The teacher training schools of the counr
try—and of the campus—seem to lack the
mysterious appeal that draws the youth of the
university into law;. engineering and other
favoured faculties.
When intelligent students are asked if
they ever considered teaching as a career,
many say they have, but offer a multitude of
reasons why they do not take teacher training. One of the most frequent excuses among
males is the sacrifice of esteem which one
suffers on the campus. A boy in teacher
training is a strange, unnatural type.
It is significant that the age-old excuse
of "teachers don't make enough money to
live" is seldom heard. It seems that there is
something other than salary that keeps people
from teaching. This something, expressed in
many ways, seems to be the low standards
of achievement accepted in Teacher Train-
Campus Chaff

realize that this campus still has it in spades

Delegates from the universities of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta found it hard
to believe that this rag, as it is so fondly
called by the letters-to-the-editor contributors, can blast away at Student Council or at
the administration with equal gusto. Back
there, in the wild and wo illy west, student
newspapers are more of a spokesman for
their Councils—a role which we feel may
have been hunky-dory back in King Tut's
day but is as out-of-date today as is grand-
pop's handle-bar lip-tickler.
On the front of The Sheaf, Saskatche'
wan's paper, it statse that the paper is published by the Student's Representative Council. I believe Feltham and his boys have
enough troubles now without inviting another
ulcer by supervising this stout defender of
freedom of the press and other such heroic
terms. On the masthead at the top of this
page it states that The Ubyssey is published
by the Alma Matter Society, something
slightly different than Student Council. We're
The Editor-in-chief of The Sheaf is
chosen by Council and anyone can apply for
the position. Just send in your entry, enclosing a dead Applied Science student, and you,
too can be editor.
The Sheaf staff, hampered by lack of
office space, make up the paper on Wednesday, but it doesn't hit the campus uritil
Friday. Editors say they have plenty of
money to publish two issues a week but
simply cant' find the staff (exactly opposite
problem here). The wheels on this year's
Sheaf are all lawyers. The legal boys at
Sasks., unlike the species here,.are noted for
their spirit. Last spring all 26 members of
the third year law class ran for the same
position on Council—drama director . . . can't

Vancouver Sun)
Education generally is under fire these
days by Little Red Schoolhouse enthusiasts.
Incredible as it may seem, there are people
who think a, grasp of the three R's is ample
education for the modern ^orld.
Such people will seize all too quickly on
UBC student disorders as "evidence** that
university students are frivolous and money
spent on UBC is wasted.
Students who let" high spirits" give semblance of support to attacks on UBC can impair their own studies there,, inflict unfair disadvantages on all other students and heavy
damage on students in years to come.
Ing and in the profession as a whole. Anyone who fails out of Commerce or Arts can
become a teacher. Consequently there is no
challenge for the honours stuflent.
Teachers have been working for years
in the Teachers' Federation to obtain "professional" salaries. They are now finding that
many of the graduates of the Teacher Training institutions are not of professional calibre.
How will the standards of education be
raised. The first prerequisite is a higher standard elf training. When the highly competent students of the campus enter teacher
training, competent, well-trained teachers
will enter the teaching profession and well-
educated children will come from the schools.
Many students in teacher training will
be excellent teachers, but they are the few
who have courage to withstand the notoriety
of being "just a teacher."
Al  Fotheringham
The Sheaf has no editorial policy whatsoever and has the audacity to say so. The
2100 students at Saskatoon pay a student
fee of $19. The amazing thing is that on the
lively prairie campus $30,000 of their $54,000
budget is raised from ticket sales and other
revenue. Council spends $495 for public relations (are you listening, Mr. St. John?).
UBC, more than twice as large, allocates about
$100 for its sorely needed public relations.
Switching to another province, the 4800
student at Manitoba contribute $13 each to
keep their dear ole Alma Mammy going.
Council also picks the editor here, a dastardly trick. The paper is made up Saturday and
Wednesday, for distribution on Tuesday and
Friday. The Manitdban office is off the campus, which doesn't help matters any. Medicine, Law, and several other faculties also
are located out of town.
Students at University of Alberta seem
to be loaded with loot, in ontrast to UBC
where they are usually just loaded. Alberta's
paper, The Gateway, is given 400 in honorariums to split among its editors—Edmonton and true-blue Social Credit, here we
come. The capitaistic pubsters at The Gateway also get $200 for parties. A Ubyssey reporter leaning over my shoulder is weeping
into his canned heat flask as he reads this.
Council can hire and fire the editor at
Alberta, probably the reason why Gateway
delegates backed down on a motion at the
conference recommending more autonomy
for student newspapers. Students at Alberta
don't pay any fees, they just cash in a few
oil shares.
Tipplers in Saskatoon were permitted to
buy tomato juice with their brew for the
first time Monday . . . one of the reasons for
a pantie raid on the women's residence there,
resulting in $50 of the lacy and foam rubber
articles being stolen. Although Ubyssey delegates neglected to bring this type of souvenir
home, they did show up with a 90-pound cornerstone from the new med building at
Saskatoon. Actually it was taken to serve as
a contribution to the Applied Science geo-
loKy students ... to be taken internally.

The newspapermen and policemen chuckle—those who do not

Education, character development consists in learning
these quite artificial modes of
living and reacting. "He knows
the ropes," "He's been around,"
"She wasn't born yesterday,"
"He's grown up"—all these refer to somebody particularly
adept at these games, these artificialities ,

honest instead of saving face;
there would be fewer games,
fewer newspapermen, very few

Why do we educate people to
play games? Is It because they
would be bored without them?
Would they not produce unless
a game were involved? Would
they stagnate if they could not
get ahead of somebody?
Do we educate people to pla*
games because they could not
hire and fully develop as men
without them, or because they
have been educated to the point
that they could not live and
develop without them. Are the
games natural, art'flcal or both?

decided that they would look

Here at UBC, the first step

Such stereotype arguments
offer no solution to the problem. They all overlook the significance of <a complete withdrawal from IUS.
This prompts the question:
can there be peaceful co-existence of Capitalism and Communism? If not, then another
war is inevitable. But if they
can co-exist, then let's see to
it that they do. By isolating
ourselves from the  iron  cur
tain countries—such as by severing our relations with IUS—
we are hastening the approach
of another war.
The Student Peace Movement's policy is guided by the
belief that Capitalism and
Communism can peacefully coexist, and therefore supports
any move that may better our
relations with the countries behind the iron curtain.

want to rearm.
Dr. Jamleson, who has just

"They are hard pressed now

He said the lobbyists in Ottawa and Washington are trying to keep Japanese imports to
a minimum. This will leave Japan to only one recourse, he continued, and that is to trade with
Communist China.
"The lobbyists and everybody

added, but he did not say what

AMS Action

HALTING A HOT SESSION in Brock lounge is assistant proctor George Deavin, who finds that keeping the
hall in order entails more than just straightening the furniture.
Early Spring Necking
Incites Frigid Stares
He placed an arm around her supple waist, whispering
unintelligibly into an ear which quivered with expectation.
Her flushed cheeks' radiated the thrill of new love and her
spine began -to arch. But the proctor spotted them from the
mezzanine. Things were going a bit too far.
Love in the lounge at Brocks
Hall is something which has had
to be kept in constant check, it
seems; spring has little to do
with it.
If there is a year-round campus pastime, apart from the tame-
ness of interdigitaliation, indoor
intimacy qualifies for the title.
The AMS discipline committee is hardly able to cope with
violators of lounge privileges if
they are not on the scene to apprehend culprits. Therefore it
falls to the janitorial staff to police the occupants, and frankly,
they are getting tired of it.
The inclination of students to
participate in this- extracurricular activity is understandable,
but there are limits to promiscuity, one of them being impressions of Brock lounge gained
by visiting dignitaries who arc
often shown the building by
high-ranking faculty members.
In an effort to combat this
wave of illicit love, it has been
suggested by the proctor that the
discipline committee appoint
one or two dependable men to
be on duty in the lounge whenever there are students present.
Next time you and the honey
are in the lounge try to be a
little discreet in your relations,
or at least keep them clean. We
have prudes on the campus.
Student Council will take no
further action with regard to
three UBC students.eherged with
assault and "obstructing police
unless important new factors
arise, declared Ivan Fletham,
AMS president, in a letter this
week to UBC president, Dr. N.
A. M. MacKenzie.
The students, John MacKinnon, 1st Applied; Robert Giegerich and Peter Mitehell, both Arts,
appeared in Vancouver police
court this morning to answer to
their charges.
Neither Dr. MacKenzie nor
Feltham had comments to make
when asked f or rieWarkes by the
Ubyssey Thursday.
Fetham had declared in his
letter to the president that council members were satisfied that
the smoker had been carried on
with "reasonable order maintained," there having been members of the faculty of Applied
Science, including Dean Henry
C. Gunning, present.
"Concerning three students
arrested," the letter concluded,
"the Council . will express no
opinion. It is to be judged that
their conduct will be judged by
the court."
a.m. Sunday after a Saturday
night masquerade parade ball on
the Saskatoon campus, is reported to have been conducted by six
university students.
Most of the loot was reported
to have been left hanging on
trees outside the residence while
police were making plaster casts
of footprints in other parts of the
grounds. Bras, panties, and slips
were taken to the police station
for identification.
The raid was not reported to

A cornerstone from the University of Saskatchewan medical building now under construction at the Saskatoon campus, made a mysterious appearance on the UBC campus Wednesday morning.
The 100 pound "Greystone,"
which disappeared from the Saskatchewan campus late Monday
night, was found in The Ubyssey
office in Brock Hall early Wednesday.
Ubyssey staffers could give no
explanation for the mysterious
appearance of the lost stone.
"Perhaps if they send us enough of them we'll be able tp
replace aome of the ancient huts
with a new building," commented editor Allan Fotheringham.

UBC Grid Squad Invades Bellingham
Saturday For Annual Tilt With WWCE
Lappie  Impressed
With   Birds  Record
UBC students will get their final opportunity to see Don
Coryell's 1953 Thunderbirds in action Saturday night when
the football team meets the Vikings of Western Washington in
an 8 p.m. fixture at Bellingham.
The 'Birds, still smarting from 50-0 and 51-0 defeats at
the hands of the Norsemen last year, will be out to avenge
themselves and gain their first conference victory at the hands
of their arch-enemies.
 ■ *   Western's coach, Charlie Lap-
Ipenbusch, says that he is worried about the UBC squad this
year particularly since the 'Birds
scored 28 points against the College of Puget Sound. (CPS defeated Western 84-0 last Saturday).

In Overtime
Maybe the 'Birds didn't win
their first hockey game of the
season at the Forum on Wednesday night, but for a team that
has Just had one practice, they
put up a terrific fight.
As a matter of fact the boys
came within an ace of winning
the game. With Just a minute
and thirty seconds left In the
game, the 'Birds were aheao
8-7, but Tom McVie, who played
a great game for Chuck Mill-
man's Forum crew, fired the
equalizer at 18.32.

That goal took all the starch
out of the UBC crew and they
Just didn't have anything left
for the overtime period. Once
again it was McVie who sunk
the 'Birds. He took a double
relay from John Bates and Nick
Yanchuk and beat 'Bird goalie
Howie Thomas for the winner.
Ray Ing with three goals and
Cliff Frame with two were the
stand-outs for the Varsity six.
In the third period Howie Thomas played some great goal for
the 'Birds, and he should be a
great help to the team this

the fact that all his players are

"I've got nobody who can go

Western's record for the season isn't very impressive with
their three losses and one win.

He said that the team is in
pretty good shape physically as
well as mentally. Jack Hutchinson aggravated the knee injury he received in the game
against Eastern but should be
in top shape for the Vikings.

JV's Open Season
Against Moderns
Dick Penn's J.V. basketball squad open their season in
the Senior "A" league Saturday night when they tackle the
New Westminster Moderns in King Ed gym at 7:30 p.m.
Penn  believes that with the
team he has this year, he should
be able to beat the Moderns and
Arctics quite regularly and possibly take a few from the strong
Eilers' squad.
Although Jim Pollock is the
only returnee from last year's
squad, Penn's crew of sophomores and freshmen are beginning to get the hang of the basic
offensive patterns and should
have a fairly smooth working
attack going for them Saturday.
If the JV's are fortunate enough to keep Jim Carter for the
