Arrive For
Long-awaited glass backboards and special hoops for
the new War Memorial Gymnasium arrived just ln time for the
unofficial student opening tonight, but they don't fit. "
Slip up in the measurements
somewhere mudc the parts join
out of line.
An extensive welding and rutting job would have been necessary in order to use the heavy
glass backdrops whicli were a
gift from the graduating class
of '.11.
Hurried *all for a remedy was
answered by substituting a
heavy plywood sheet which was
porting framework.
Workmen were still finishing
the job at press time Thursday,
and the painting had not yet
been started.
Ole Bakken, who had been
waiting anxiously for weeks for
the backstop equipment to arrive In Vancouver, showed disappointment when he heard that
the  glass frames  could  not  be
used for the opening tonight.
"After weeks of wiring and
checking with the manufacturers and the shipping companies
to get these backboards here
before the opening date, this has
to happen," he moaned.
Hut Bakken realized that nothing could be done before the
opening gamo, so ho arranged
for the substitutes.
"Students are used to seeing
wooden backstops In the old
gym," he said, "so I guess they
won't mind too much If the glass
frames aren't in for tonight."
Just when the gift equipment
will be installed, was not made
"At least the goods are here,"
Bakken said. "That's some consolation." *
Coach Jack Pomfret of tho
Thunderbird Basketball team,
will work his boys In the new
gym today to get them nsed to
the springy floor and the baskets in preparation for their
8:00 p.m. game with Eastern
Washington Savages.

AMS Meeting
, Spring general meeting of the
Alma Mater Society has been rnoi*
ed forward five days from March
15 to 20, a student council official
announced today.
Postponement of the meeting
was necessitated by the previous
scheduling of a concert by the
Special Events committee of fhe
Literary and Scientific Executive.
Student Council will petition the
administration to have l:0i» p.m.
lectures cancelled so that the stu-
■dent meeting may last two hours
If necessary.
Main points on the agenda so
far concern further Implementation of the Ostrom Plan and revision of the AMS constitution.
An Engineer was fined $10
in police court Thursday on a
charge of intoxication in a pub*
lie place. He is A. W. Slater,
who told Mag. W. W. B. Mclnnes when asked for an explanation, that there is "just
one big event of the year—the
Engineers' Ball."
Slater was arrested by police officers In Vancouvers
Chinatown Thursday morning
following the annual Engineers' Ball, this year entitled
"Qodiva's Gallop.''

Charges that political clubs were
attempting to control council were
made by Ubyssey editor Jim Banham In his column "Brickbats'' two
weeks ago. Banliani claimed that
political clubs conspired before
Christmas to put up a slate ol
officers and elect them to council
for the 1951-52 term.
Student Council subsequently
asked Banham to prove his charge
or print an apology for his statements. Banham said he would do
"As a newspaperman 1 cannot
reveal my sources and since I
feel I was acting In the best interests of the student body, I do not
feel that an apology Is necessary,'-
Hanham told councillors at a special meeting.
Editor-in-chief Ray Frost of the
Publications Hoard Informed Council ut the same time that the
editorial board of the Ubyssey was
In full support of Uunlvum's statements,
Banliani offered at. the same
time to ask his sources to appear
before a council committee to reiterate liis statements. An unanied
council committee of three persons
was set up and conducted investigations for more than a week.
In a .statement released yesterday, the committee said, "The fact
that several leading members of
political clubs took active parts in
the AMS elections would Indicate
nothing more than the fact that
the interests of such persons happened to be along the lines of
student government--a not unusual and not uneoninienclable state of
"That such persons were friends
is also not unusual since their
interests lay along the same lines
botli as far as the university und
outside matters were concerned.''
The committee's report continued: "It might well have appeared
on the surface that a plot existed
lo pack the council with political
leaders, and Mr. Banhani's remarks t
are  understandable   particularly  in
special council meeting and the
report handed down by the committee, both Banham and the committee attempted to get primary
sources to appear before the council to substantiate the information.   Neither  were  successful.
The committee and Banham,
however, met with a secondary
source, who did substantiate the
information. Tho committee handed down their report on Information received from tlio secondary
"We bave therefore," the commute concludes in their report,
"no recourse but to conclude that,
although Mr. Banham had the best
interests of the student body at
heart when making his accusations
and believed these to be true, that
they sprang from remarks which
could not be further substantiated.
Permanent Job
Prospects Good

Graduates of commerce and engineering have the host prospects
for obtaining permanent jobs this
spring, according to Major John
Mclean of the UBC Placement
Prospects look especially good,
he said, for mechanical, electrical
and  chemical engineers.
About '10 per cent of the engineers and L'il per cent of all other
faculties have already' obtained

bureau hopes lo place **><' per cent
of the engineering faculty in lhe

-Major McLean stressed, however, that engineering jobs were
not as plentiful as some engineers
believed. Because a number of
them were offered two or three
jobs, lie said, Ihey have the idea
that there are more jolts available than engineers to fill them.
This,   he said,  is  completely  false.

Wasting  Our Time?
Results of Wednesday's plebescite on
religious courses appear to be an amusing tribute to UBC's students' love of academic
Of 1258 student voters, 910 were in
favor of the University offering religious
courses. But when it came to putting themselves down as interested in taking the
courses, most voters apparently adopted a
"Who, me?" attitude, for fewer than 600
said they were interested.
We haven't quite decided whether this
means UPC students are all for Christianizing everyone but themselves, or whether they
merely wish to avoid standing in the way
of anyone else seeking a greater insight into
religion and its problems.
. The only really unfortunate part of the
referendum's results is that they stem from
a rather dubious survey—namely, a 20 percent turnout to the AMS polls. In other
words, roughly 15 percent of our 6200 students have gone on record as favoring religi
ous courses. A fat 80 percent of the campus
have expresed no opinion at all, for they
didn't bother to vote Wednesday
The problem now facing the student committee on religious courses is a very real
and decidedly secular one: Should a vote
among 20 percept of the student population
be considered a sufficient degree of expression upon which to base recommendations to
the Administration?
The answer if we are to accept our new
Council as also definitely decided, must of
course be 'yes-' But a cautious, budget-conscious Administration may well see fit to reject our findings as incomplete, and order#a
questionnaire written into next fall's registration.
And it may easily develop that, after
all its fussing and fuming, the religious
referendum committee, through no direct
fault of its own, has been wasting its valuable
Cut   Down   on   Conniving
By expending a few cents extra per student, UBC's Alma Mater Society might find
it can safeguard student elections and provide a positive system of identification at
the same time. ,
In an earlier editorial, The Ubyssey outlined a system of polling divisions that would
put the onus on each voter either to vote
honestly or commit forgery.
Now forgery is a hard thing to prove and,
on such grounds, might not be out of temptation's way for the type of student who would
stuff ballot boxes anyway.
To avoid this grave possibility, the AMS
elections committee should look into the
feasibility of providing a photostatic copy of
each AMS card, to replace the card inself.
Before the photostats are made, each
member of the AMS would have his picture
and his signature placed on his card.
The card itself might then go on file in
the AMS office as a reference system with
multiple uses and advantages. The photostats
would be carried on the person, just as cards
are supposed to be now.
The obvious advantage to this method
is that it would ensure that once a person's
signature and photograph are linked for identification, they could not be altered. The system would cut out all chances of unscrupulous students juggling their photos from card
to card and passing off scrawled signatures.
The Ubyssey has not investigated the
exact cost of such a venture. We feel that
such investigations lie in the jurisdiction of
lhe elections committee.
But the price would have to be pretty
high before anyone could claim that insurance of honest elections are not worth the
expenditure involved.
Critic on the Hearth ***.*. »«u»+m
"The Gondoliers" was offered by Mussoc
as its traditional spring attempt but unfortunately the gondola was waterlogged even
before it had a chance to sink.
Any non-professional organization who
attempt a work by Gilbert and Sullivan
should have their heads examined. If they
hope to make these papier-mache trifles
palatable they must posses the highest technical precision, a polished urbanity, and a
sense of high-comedy style that it is usually
quite impossible for performers other than
those of the D'Oylc Carte to achieve. Most
amateurs therefore certainly cannot expect
commendation for attempting the impossible.
The handicap Mussoc imposed upon
themselves by choosing G. and S. was not
helped by the director, Mr. C. Haydn Williams who is a thoroughly incompetent leader
both technically and artistically. The performance was completely out of hi.s control.
No one payed the slightest attention to him.
On the whole, the singers showed no conception of musical line and seemed content to
stand opening their mouths in a mqst lackadaisical fashion, irregardless of the noise
that emerged.
Mr. E. V. Young, the stage director, took
every opportunity of stringing the singers in
a straight line across the front of the stage.
Acting was reduced to a minimum, the recall of lines scorning to be all that the performers were able to concentrate on at one
There were two exceptions to this general
ennui, in the performances of Milla Andrew
as Tessa and John Yoemans as Guiseppe.
Miss Andrews' acting has improved tremendously and was full of neat touches. Vocally
she has always made intelligent use of a good
Voice and yesterday liar singing wa-: imbued
with a new measure nf duii'in,      „
Mr. Yoemans is still a diamond in the
rough but managed to communicate an infectious zest when on stage and revealed a
good natural voice the with proper training
should make him an ideal operetta hero.
This review has been deliberately scathing although not any more so than the performance warranted. "Dido and Aeneas" was
an artistic triumph for Mussoc proving that
high standards are possible for student productions. In view of that previous success
I feel that Mussoc is fully deserving of such
•-•ensure for their present fiasco.

There will be weeping and wailing and
gnashing of teeth in the Caf today.
Permanent fixtures, some of the very
bulwark of the caf, will be seen to throw
back a stiff gulp of coffee, clench their teeth,
and with one white knuckled hand gripping
the table edge, throw open a copy of the

I must hide. A hundred yards away in
the Brock there is a steady traffic of Co-eds
passing through the north door. The co-eds
passing on wearing look of urgency and walk
slightly faster than those passing out. My
deductive brain works feverishly. No Engineer would follow me there. Nipping smartly

I am in a sort of opium den. I find it necessary to breathe through the mouth and chew
the air and I suspect someone has been
smoking. From behind a typewriter a pair
of eyes glows maliciously in the darkness.
"Looks like one of Norm's hatchet men.
See if he's clean."
The mammook hide which I am wearing
as a disguise during The Great Purge is torn
from me and I am left nude and trembling,
but undeniably clean. As I blushingly clutch
at copy paper in an attempt to cover my
tribe scar, the horrible truth of my predicament comes to me. I am in the Pub.

I can make a break. Say anything.

Albert Confident of Win
As Cup Play Resumes
Albert Laithwaite, coach of the powerful UBC English
Rugby team, struck an optimistic note yesterday concerning the
'Birds McKechnie Cup match with Victoria Crimson Tide
Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in the Stadium.
Laithwaite Is quite confident his*
team will win on Saturday because
"The squad has looked a lot sharper ln practice this week than they
ever have before, and with a good
crowd backing them up can really
General scrum lagging In getting
the ball out to the scrum half, and
lack of push, has prompted him to
place veteran Dick Buxton and new
comer John Olsen ln the second
Olsen had played for Victoria
last year against UBC in Cup games and he's quite anxious to have
a crack at his former teammates.
Previously, the 'Birds were beaten by the Islanders 6-3 but as yet
have not had an opponent acros
their line. Victoria scored two penalty kicks against a lone UBC try.
The team has been sufferhu'
from lack of a good fullback who
has the anticipation and timing
necessary for that position. I,alth-
walte Is certain Dave MacFarlane
has those attributes and will be a
great asset to the team this weekend.
"I've  also  got  two  of  the  best
wings in the district In John Newton   and   Oeorge   Pull,   once   they
get their hands on the bail."
There will be three centres lor
the match in strip, deny Main.
Stan Clarke and Hugh Greenwood
are being considered for the twr
As usual Junior Tennant will be
at scrum half. This is his fourth
year on the team and he Is reputed to be one of the best scrim
halves In the district.
In the scrum. Bill Blake, Don
Shaw hnd Ralph Martinson will
fill up the front row. Blake ha.s
been playing exceptionally good
ball all season. Shaw, although only
weighing 150 lbs., moves very fast
and is a continual hustler.
Austin Taylor will he sth man
while* the two break forwards will
be Doug .MacMillan and Danny Oliver. Taylor is the biggest man on
the team with his 265 lbs. and a
very good kicker.
Anyway Albert thinks he has
solved the problem of getting the
hall out from the scrum to one of
his wings and, provided the moral
support ls there, he Is sure of a
decisive victory.'
