1363 votes to Brad Crawford's

187.
CLOSE  COUNT
In the closest running on the
second slate. Tom Toynbee
squeezed in 34 votes ahead of
Buzz Hudson to take the Directorate of the Men's Athletic Association. First count tallied 691
votes for Hudson, 703 for Toynbee, and 523 for Gordon Laurie.
Final count for MAA director
saw Toynbee take 946 votes to
Hudson's 912.
Defending her position as
Women's Athletic Association
Director, Charlotte Warren
claimed a decisive victory over
Berta Whittle. Miss Warren, winning six of the nine polls, totalled 429 votes to Miss Whittle's
240.
Lynda Gates, now vice president of Women's Undergraduate
Society, moved up the scale to
the presidency by defeating
Sally Robertson 466 to 282. Miss
Gates took all but one polling
station.
THACKRAY   GAINS
Thackray gained heavily in
the Engineering building, taking
235 votes to Esselmont's 1(14; in
the Library, 355 to 259, and in
the Quad, 319 ot 175. His total
was   473   above  Esselmont's.
Miss Archibald, who recently
won the World University Scholarship to Europe for the Summer
Study Seminar, lost on only two
. polls, the Library and the General Hospital. Elsewhere she
made   her  gains   in   the   Engin-
■ eering poll, 237 to 139; the
Quad, 258 to 180; and the Brock,
I 254 to 198.

REDSHIRTS   ONE-SIDED
On   the   first   three   elections,
the Engineering vote was largely   one-sided.   But  only   on   the
; Men's  Athletic  Directorate  poll
did   it  decide  the  outcome.
Laurie swept the Redshirt's
poll, winning 216 to Toynbee's
i 136 and Hudson's 43. On the
first count, Hudson won six of
the other seven polls. Laurie's
votes were re-alloted for a second count.
Toynbee took the Engineering

77. Hudson won three of the
other seven polls on the second
count.

Ha,   Ha,   Ha!
Mention the word circus and the legendary name Barnum
ahd Bailey comes automatically to mind. However, the two
immortal giants of the entertainment world are in danger of
being supplanted here in British Columbia. Mention the word
circus in B.C. and the Legislature comes automatically to
mind.
P. T. Barnum's bankroll could never have bought the
sideshow now in progress in Victoria. Gaglardi, Sommers,
Laing, Bennett, Gargrave and Bonner have all taken turns
as the star attraction of the day. But the true star of the whole
show, the clown emeritus, tepped into the spotlight last Tues->
day.
Mrs. Lydia Arsens, the Social Credit member for Victoria, gave a never-to-be-forgotten performance that would have
n>ade funnyman Charlie Chaplin weep in humility.
The piece-de-resistance came right at the beginning. Lydia,
who, as the Socreds medical expert, has already opposed
fluoridation, vaccination and vivisection, announced there "is
a cure for cancer." This world-shaking announcement brought
the singularly unimpressed comment of "Oh, come now," from
Dr. Larry Giovandi (Ind-Nanaimo-the-Islands).
But like all true performers Lydia was undeterred and
plunged on. She said nutritional deficiencies cause cancer,
arthritis, polio, multiple sclerosis and other ailments. "By
feeding a cancer patient more potassium and eliminating all
forms of sodium, the body heals and the cancer disappears,"
Mrs. Arsens told the House.
Lydia then turned to the pressing needs of the province.
She urged the government to distribute free earwig bait in an
attempt to control the pest. Apparently B. C. has an earwig
problem. From earwigs the lady Socred turned to rats and
demanded a province-wide drive on them.
.   Then in a grand finale Lydia questioned the "moral good"
of- nudist camps and sat down.
It had taken a lot of doing but Lydia had replaced Gaglardi as the .star of the show. Gaglardi had reached the top
by declaring that his Fraser River tunnel idea was "a triumph
of imagination over engineering."
However, our Legislature did conduct some business last
week. Its single piece of legislation last week made the dogwood the official flower of B. C.
'For a sideshow the acts of Arsens, Gaglardi and Co. are
topnotch — for the government of this province they are
frightening.

American campii. Below, in the first of two articles, a UBC student presents his opinion of
this revival.—Ed.
By ALBERT HENKE
„ Second Commerce
(PART 1)
The human race finds itself in a position where, either it solves its problems, or it exterminates itself.
What are the solutions advanced to solve our problems? Here in the Western World, ec-
pecially, many believe to solve our problems is to "return to Church." We should go back
to the faith of our fathers, back to old ways of thinking. We are to retrogress, not progress.
In order than mankind pro
Stocks
The Editor, The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
There are a considerable
number of students who are
taking by for the majority
of their courses in 3rd year or
higher, but because they lack
the three units required to
give them a conditional third
year standing, do not have access to the stocks. Then students find themselves at a
definite disadvantage compared to other students in their
classes   who   do   have   passes.
Not only is time wasted waiting
at the desk to obtain books,
but due 1 othe insufficient
information of the card catalogues, the books obtained are
often of little use. It is therefore far better for a student if
he has access to the many
books available and can examine them himself. This
would simplify the duties of
the librarian while also reducing the number of books in
circulation.
With this problem in mind-
Bob Aitken,
Janos Adier
gress we must use reason, must
temper the old orthodoxies,
whose thinking seems to be
buried in, and derived from
the hoary ancients. The past is
gone! Instead of turning only
to the wisdom gained by our
fathers, let us allow the fresh
air of "new thought" to help
us out of our crisis.
Orthodox religion is not adequately grappling with the
truly vital problems of today.
They ace disappating their energies in fruitless controversies
over trivialities. The churches
of the world appear indifferent
to the cries of two-thirds of
its people suffering every day
from malnutrition.
WORLD HEALTH
The World Health Organization, grappling with the problem of "over-population," believed that one solution to this
vital world problem would be
birth control. All the world's
religions, in the name of God
and Humanity, fiercely objected to the plan. And after
all, are not the World Religions the sole possessors of the
"Eternal Truths"? The World's
Religions, we know, are not
worried about men's bodies—
the "souls" of men are their
concern. A few more births,
a few more "potential" souls
to save—even if 66Vft of these
new births are to suffer in the
agony of pain and hunger.
Let us consider the other
"vital" problem facing mankind, namely the "Hydrogen
Bomb."
In the Vancouver Sun of
February 2nd, 1956, the air
secretary of United States is
quoted as saying—
"Today a single bomber, or
a missile, or even a fighter
bomber can deliver on a target as much explosive force
as all the Second World War
bombers combined."
Then he concluded with a
statement, typical of 20th century  mentality—
"It is only common sense
that whatever weapons our air
force uses must be readily available" because "instant readiness means survival" in the
atomic age.
Mind you—it's only common
sense to drop these bombs
around. It is difficult to understand how the noun "survival"
got in that statement. Survival of what? With a few
bombs of the magnitude of
the H-bomb, can we expect the
human race to survive? 1 was
about to say only God would
be left—but then the God of
our imagination can hardly
outlive the human beinjs's
ability to imagine.
What are the "vital" problems the theologians are worried about? I said I thought
they are wasting their energy
in trivialities.
Recently the hierarchy of the
church in Spain—the Cardinal
Primate himself issued a "pastoral letter" warning Spaniards
against the moral danger of
mixed bathing at beaches,
swimming pools and rivers.
Let's look at another vital
problem theologians are worried about. Every now and
then the Roman Hierarchy feels
it expedient to elevate certain
people to Sainthood. Unless
the odd person now and then
is considered a Saint, many a
poor soul may go lost. It can
not help but believe that God,
like the Hydrogen Bomb, is no
respector of persons.
Out most recent theologian
of any eminence is Billy Graham. Dear old Billy—hasn't
he been burning himself out—
running all over the country
side "saving men's souls." I.
haven't heard Mr. Graham propose any solutions to the state
of our bodies.
We have reached the preposterous position that, in this
day and age, the matter which
most exercises the Christian
churches of this country is not
the hydrogen bomb, or any
other desparate social and
moral problems which continue
to afflict this sorry world, but
the rights of certain men to
a magically transmitted authority, the historic origins of which
to say the least, are extremely
dubious.
We are told to return to religion. But I ask you, what has
the old religion done and what
can it give us that we should
desire to go back to the old
way?
Only yesterday Giordano
Bruna had been burned by the
"inquisition' for holding that
the solar system is only one of
many similar systems of suns
and planets.
Only yesterday, in 1808 Great
Britain abolished the slave
trade. Only yesterday, as an
excuse for tyranny, as a justification of slavery, the church
taught that man is totally depraved.
Only yesterday, in the lifetime of our parents, the church
fiercely opposed the discussion
of evolution in our schools.
What is mankind to do? Our
only hope, it is said by many,
lies in a  return to religion.
CHURCH PAGE
So religion is to help us out
of the terrible dilemma facing
mankind. Let us turn to the
church page of that same issue
of the Vancouver Sun, Feb-
riK"-"  ?nd.  1956.
What do we find on the
churcn page (remember this is
A.D. 1956). Ah—here's a sermon on one of the pulpits—
"The Sign of thy Coming"
and the end of the world (Math:
54:3) Wm. Booth's prophecy!
Amasing signs of the times,
(documented).
What is the wonderful inspiration and truth the church
instills in our hearts to have
courage. "THE SIGN OF THY
COMING" and the END OF
THE   WORLD.
We've  turned   to   religion—
what are we told? Relax, look
at the "word" of God, Mathew
24, verse 3—"the end is at
hand." The Almighty Creator
really planned for the time
mankind would exterminate itself.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, as is well known, has
stated that the hydrogen bomb
raises  no  new  problems.
"At it's worst," he has said,
"all that it could do would be
■weep a vast number of persons at one moment from this
world into the other and more
vital world, into which, anyhow, they must all pass at
tome time."
One may presumably conclude from this that the Archbishop would view the extermination of the human race
from this planet with comparative equanamity. Most theologians today seem to assume
that God made a blunder when
he created man. It really is
much easier to hold God responsible for our plight—
which in reality most of the
world religions are doing.
We have two God given attributes, emotion and reason.
Religion had pandered itself to
sensationalism and charged
emotionalism, that is, to
thoughtlessness.
God has given us reason,
yet many ignore this gift. What
is your opinion of a man who
would deride the gift of God,
who would "spit" on divine
efforts?
We regard highly a religious
experience which is actually
emotional in content, and from
which we get emotional satisfaction. Is not an intellectual
experience from which we get
intellectual satisfaction just as
valid?
If we all paused to think,
we would no doubt realize
that in its present form, Christianity demands the crucifix-
tion  of  the soul!
The whole dilemma the
world is faced with is due to
man's insistence on hanging
onto comforting philosophies of
life instead of facing reality on
our own two feet. What I
would like to say has been
aptly expressed by Edgar W.
Johnson in an editorial of November 8th, 1954, entitled "Self
Help  Needed"—
Experience of the ages shows
that if the social order which
man hopes to enjoy is to be
brought into being it mils! be
built by man, with man, for
man. The only knowledge,
kindliness and courage the
world knows is that which we
ourselves create and sustain.
Apart from us they do not
exist.
Let us stop this nonsense of
shelving the blame by such
terms as "God's Will" or "Work
of the Devil."
If only by a "Back to
Church" campaign man hopes
to solve his problems, then
man is fostering a "dangerous
illusion"   indeed. WUS   Treasures-

NFCUS scholarships at University of Toronto aren't being
used either, and the University
Senate there has threatened to
discontinue participation in the
scholarship plan in 1957, unless
students take advantage of the
plan.
The Senate's motion said Toronto's participation in the
scheme would end in 1957 if
"no progress was .made" in encouraging students to avail themselves of the exchange plan,
Not one U of T student is
making use of the scholarships.
Only two students from other
Universities are registered at
Toronto under the NFCUS plan.
Student NFCUS officials at
Toronto admitted their committee had not "pushed'' the ex-,

"The charge that NFCUS has
paid little attention to the scholarships is probably jusified,"
NFCUS co-chairman Bill Smythe
said, "but I think the situation
can be remedied."

UBC students living by their lonesome and existing on
canned beans can take heart. Three Home Ec students are just
dying to come to their rescue.
Anyone having cooking difficulties and needing menus, budget or diet advice should telephone Maureen Twa at AL. 3883
after six p.m.
Maureen will then mail out
a questionaire to all interested
asking such pertinent questions
as the type of cooking equipment available, experience in
food preparation and the amount
of money you have to spend
each week.
She, together with Alice Husband, Home Ec. 4, and Norma
Lapworth, Home Ec. 3. are doing
this "rescue UBC bachelor"
project as part of their nutir-
tion course under the supervision of Miss Elizabeth Smith
of the Department.
The minute the questionaires
are returned the girls will start
preparing planned budgets,
menus, special diets when necessary and all geared to meet
the need of the individual bachelors concerned.
So why subside on canned
beans when you could eat "Stew
a la mode." Rush to your phone
and call Maureen tonight. She,
backed up by the resources of
the Home Ec. department is just
waiting to help you.
