Socreds Hypocritical,

itself, said the campus Libera'
party vice-president. He continued,
"The Liberal Government ha,s
learned from the mistakes of the
list and have now taken the lea 1
In promoting international co-operation and collective action."
Social Credit, on the other hand,
he charged, supports the UN only
insofar as It is a loose union and
unable to enforce Its decisions
This anti-UN -attitude he attributed to strong British Israelite
forces within Social Credit whloh
feel that the British Commonwealth is the "Chosen People" and
must not be subverted to a greater
world movement like the UN.
■10  LIE
He referred to Social Credits
demand for credit control as tho
"big Ue" since the federal government has had this control since
the twenties.
He concluded by reference to the
"antl-semltic history" of the Social Credit Party, claiming that
while favorable economic conditions do not warrant finding a
scape-gout now they would not
hesitate to do so In the event of
economic reversals.
Social Credit wlil bring "honesty
In government" to the Canadian
political scene, retorted- Roy
Trimble, president ot the UBC Social Credit Club.
Evils of depression are due to
"underconsumption,'' he explain
ed, and while Liberals have alleviated this condition by public works,
producer subsidies, and social security,    the   problem   is   still   u;i-

He charged that Liberal Party
has become corrupt and that people huve lost control of their
country. "When such conditions
arise a new party must take over,
be it Conservative, CCF or Soctal

John Murdock drew a parallel
between Liberal club executive and
the Soviet Politburo, where one
person speaks for all. "Liber.'.'

those who have forgotten to serve

Quebec, he charged is the core

One of the most, exciting and

last night in the I'niversity Auditorium.

Honi Soit Qui Mai Y Pense
While the police were getting in on the
act in the Avon Theatre, pornographic magazines were being sold right across the street
to anyone old enough to wield a dime.
It is incongruous that the authorities,
so squeamish about banning these out and
out "lust" magazines lest they be accused of
suppression, should be so eager to "clean up"
a play that has become a modern classic. The
only possible explanation lies in the fact that
the stage is still stuck with a stigma of indecency as a relic of the Puritan age.
It seems that the law enforcing agencies
have not yet caught up with the modern
methods of transmission of immorality. They
do not realize that an imaginatively contorted
nude, even if only two dimensional, is more
lewd in effect in the hands of a ten year old
than anything that could be staged in the
viray of "torrid" scenes for an adult audience,
VThe recent debate in the House of Commons about the suppression of filthy literature proves that, while members of parliament are quite aware of the seriousness of
the problem, they find themselves quite unable to cope with it.
We are faced on the one hand with a cancerous spread of literature that is being
brought on the market solely to cater to the
baseness of the frustrated, and on the other
hand with the danger that the judiciary, in
whose hands the? enforcing of present regulations has been entrusted, will interpret the

Having chosen vour subject early you will now

There remain, however, two criteria which
would reduce the problem. First, consideration should be taken of the merits of the
material in question. This, however, would
probably necessitate the elevation of literary
critics to the level of censors, a situation they
would certainly not relish. Another objection
to such a scheme is the fact that the critics
are more reliable as men of hindsight than
In spite of all these objections, however,
there remains one feasible" aspect to the consideration of material on merit. It would
primarily exclude the worst of those literary
masterpieces which are created solely for
their pornographic appeal. The final step,
then, is to see that the remaing objectionable literature be kept out of the hands
of children.
One thing remains clear. A standard of good
or bad taste cannot be set purely on the depth
of a decolletage, length of skirt or strength of
embrace. Contrary to appearances, sex was
not invented in the 20th century. Humanity
seems to have been able to cope with sex in
inilleniums gone by. If the present preoccupation with sex is to be turned into its normal
channels, we shall also have to wean ourselves from the tendency of regarding sex as
the unmentionable side of life.
In other words, we shall have to grow up.

There are twenty-five money-minded (or mad) girls on

the girls are a little outnumbered—fifteen to one to be exact.
However, it is evident that the girls are able to "hold their

Not Too Hard
(With apologies to the unknown
person who first wrote a column
like this).
After   hearing  a   few   (?)   complaints that the exams outside of
Commerce were too hard I decided
to make a survey. Here are a few
of the easy questions I found on
other  faculties'  papers.
ENGLISH 100-101
(One question on  the exam)
1 Underline the correct word:
a  I (ain't twern't) going.
1 Draw a graph showing the life
expectancy of an African Duni Dum
2 Is the X-axls of German descent?
Suggested time for each of these
exams Is 48 hours.

Hydraulie    T.    Square,    UBC's
nauseatlngly typical Engineer, hurried out of his Principle hermody
namics ot Philosophy class.
He rushed down the hall, Inv
ipolitely bowling ovter little Al
Hlcks and raced into the room
where he prepared for his one
happy moment in the long weary
day of an Engineer — reading the
Settling down to his lunch of
rock samples and mouldy engineering sweaters. T. 8quare grasped
the Ubyssey In sheer Joy.
This moment, three times a weak
when Hydraulic read the Ubyssey,
was a fleeting brief light In an
eight-hour tog ot formulae, drafting
tables and rehearsals of the Engineering song.
iut today Hydraulic saw something which made his heart beat
faster in his manly lttle chest and
caused his brain to throb harder
in his square little head.
The Engineers had been men
tlened In the Ubyssey.
Publicity Ytt
Now If there Is anything an Engineer loves, besides his log table
or a blind dote with a nurse, it's
publicity. Engineers will do fantastic things in order to obtain
publicity — even so tar as to travel
to Blrks clock.
The article Hydraulic's beady
little eyes had spied was a sidelight on Jimntp Sinclair's recent
speech on the campus. The article
did. not have a by-line on it, It factually reported an incident and a
quote by Sinclair.
But the Important thing to Hy
draulic was that It was publicity
tor Redshirts. And better still. It
gave promise ot still more publicity.
With gears clanking noisily In
side his cranium. Hydraulic finally
hit upon « plan ... a letter to the
editor . . . that will do it . . . we'll
show these Artsmen that an En
glneer can w.rlte nnd spell . . . er

Poor Hydraulic
Donning clothes which would
make hlm recognizable In outside
society. T. Square slunk out of the
Engineering building (the first
time lu three years) and set out
for the Pub office.
Aside from ti couple of freshettc;
mistaking hlm for one of the popular   molesters,   Hydraulic   had   no
trouble getting to the Pub. After
being greeted  with  the  usual  hysterical  laughter which characterises  any  Sclenceman's  entry  Into
the office,  he borrowed a Child';-.
Elementary   Dictionary,   sharpened
his  colored  crayon and  began  to
write in a primitive illegible scrawl j
handed down from prehistoric gen
eration to generation. j
Using the peculiar type of reasoning confined to Sciencemen. our
hero feebly protested in his message that that big bully 'Mr. Foth-I
relngliam" had ben picking on the
poor,     undernourished     Euglnee--v i

Proud   of   his   masterful   display.
of  deductive   logic,   Hydraulic   fur
tlvely slipped  hi* essay under  the
editor's   door   and   slunk   back   tithe   safety   of   bis   castle.
