EC0NDERS SPfeAK FOR  NOMINEES
THE LIB!
Presidential Candidates
In an AMS President two qualities are of prime
significance:
1. familiarity with student affairs.
2. demonstrated executive ability.
Stan Beck is outstanding in both regards.
A memebr of Sigma Tau Chi, the men's honorary fraternity, Stan is a veteran of three years'
experience on the Ubyssey, as Sports Editor, Associate Editor and this year as
Editor-in-Chief of the Publications Board, controlling overall
operation of all campus publications, particularly the award-
winning Ubyssey. Stan's membership on the Men' Athletic
Directorate has made him especially well informed on the
athletic set-up here at UBC.
His service on this year's Student  Council,  on   the  President's Committee on Public Relations, and an unmatchable familiarity with all
branches of student activites gained from his newspaper experience combine to make Stan Beck- a
really uniquely qualified candidate for President
of the AMS.
PETER GRANTHAM,
MED. n.
STAN BECK
If you value experience as an important factor
in choosing a President, our candidate is well qualified. He has been: .
# A member of Students'  Council  1954-55.
# Freshman Vice President 1952-53.
# Two years on High School Conference Committee.
# Organizer and President of Pep Club for
two years.
# Commissioned in
RCN(R) UNTD.
# Chairman Traffiq
Safety Week 1956.
# Chairman of Student
Food Services Investigation
Committee.
' Add to this background
the drive and planning of an
enthusiastic and conscientious
worker, and you will know
why we support Don Jabour

I am nominating Ron Longstaffe for the Presidency, having a firm conviction in his capabalities
as a student leader.
This year several campus projects have been
initiated, such as the Brock Extension, which will
require knowledgeable attention if they are to be
successfully completed. As vice president, Ron hag
gained the insight with which he can lend continuity to the endeavours of next
year's Council.
The Presidency requires
the initiative that Ron has
shown and it also requires the
giving of incentive, something
that Ron has done in his Committee work this year.
To function effectively, the
Council must have the coopera*
tion of the Administrative, and
the president must have the re-
RON LONGSTAFFEspect of the Faculty—a respect that Ron has already earned.
The AMS operates on a budget of $125,000 and
therefore requires as President a man of proven
executive ability. Examine his record and see why
I have given my support to Ron Longstaffe.

"Federalist"
Party   Plans
To Annex U.S.
KINGSTON, Ont—(CUP) —
A new "Federalist" party has
been formed on the Queen's
campus for the Mock Parliament on February 20. A report in
the Queen's Journal reveals that
scores of followers are joining
the young organization.
The party's platform stressed
complete autonomy for Canada,
with Princess Margaret reigning
as C a n a d a ' s first sovereign
Queen.
Party organizers say a plan to
have the exiled King Farouk
become Canada's first governor
of the Queen is still in the embryo stage. Farouk, they state,
cabled Federalist organizers that
he still fosters hopes of regaining his Egyptian crown.
Once Canadian autonomy is
achieved a move will be made
to annex the United States and
Mexico, which will become the
11th and 12th provinces of Canada.
The heads of the Federal |jari.\
are depending on American
pressure groups, realizing the
advantages of being absorbed
by Canadian industrial firms, to
push the proposal through the
Mouse.
The bill called for a revision
of the Burnaby, Delta, North
^Vancouver, and Peace River
ridings, the elimination of multiple-member ridings and the
decennial revision of electoral
representation.
Declared Ron Basford. last
year's president of the Liberal
Club, in introducing the bill,
"the previous government said:
"To hell with Vancouver. They
refused to provide a fair share
of representation for urban areas."
Opposition LPP, CCF. and
Conservative parties supported
the move, while Social Credit
vigorously opposed it. Said So»
cred President Mel Smith: "We
feel this is an insignificant and
trivial  piece  of legislation."
The L.P.P. Opposition criticized features in the bill which
they felt left an opening for
riding to be represented by only
one member in the case of an
elecetion. They felt, also, that
the government had chosen a
poor bill, when a number of
other more pressing issues were
unsolved.
C C.F, head Bill Marchak
stated that his party was solidly
behind the bill as something they
lv>d been pressing for a long
time. He recommended that the
commission provided for in the
bill be given • more adequate
time for revision of ridings.

Progress
UBC is a busy place, and members of Student's Council
who look after the interests of upwards of 6000 students, are
very busy people.
, Councillors must fulfill the myriad obligations which meetings, elections, committees, finance, co-ordination of activities
and correspondence inevitably entail. And if they're worth
their salt, as this year's councillors apparently are, they will
institute special projects to meet the needs of a growing, changing university, such as the expanded Accident Benefit Fund,
the Brock Extension, the Finance Committee, the Leadership
Conference and so on.
All this takes time, as harried councillors well know. The
average council member spends at least 15 hours a week on
council business, but many spend a great deal more. A host
of meetings to attend, letters to write and people to see means
a lot of time spent away from studies and social activities.
Naturally, as the university population mushrooms, Councillors can expect more and more work to pile up on the
agenda. With a university population of 10,000, (coming by
1960), more students will be doing more things, and councillors
may see their weekly schedules increase from 15 or so hours
a week to 20, or 30, or even 40 hours—a full-time job.
We respectfully suggest that it's time to start paying them.
When AMS Treasurer Geoff Conway suggested $100 honorariums for all councillors and the Ubyssey managing and
city editors last Fall, the proposal was greeted with a howl
of" disapproval. It was argued that councillors are amply paid
for their services in terms of prestige and administrative experience. It was also argued, somewhat illogically, that to pay
councillors would somehow corrupt them, or at least debase
the lofty ideal of public service, which presumably motivates
all councillors at present.
Both these arguments are good as far as they go. When
UBC was an academic hamlet of 2000 students, councillors could
legitimately be expected to perform a labor of love for the
Old Alma Mater. Prestige and experience very probably were
sufficient payment, and besides, there wasn't enough work to
justify an honorarium.
Law student Rafe Mair's facetious proposal at the Fall
General Meeting to give honorariums to practically everybody
on campus was a cute trick; besides being amusing, it expressed
the only sensible objection to the honorarium proposal that
could be advanced: namely, "Where are vou going to chaw the
line?"
This is a fair question, and merits a lot of attention by
thoughtful students. It is obviously impractical to pay every
single club president and their ilk, and to our mind, their duties
don't warrant it.
Conway's proposal, we think, drew the line pretty fairly.
The Ubyssey brass and the councillors put in more time on
essential student business than anyone else. One hundred
dollars per year, to us seems to be exactly the right amount:
too small to be sought after as a salary, but large enough to
attract able students who might otherwise be deterred from
taking on Council duties.
It is doubtful that Students' Council will again propose
granting honorariums at the Spring General Meeting, so students will probably not see them become a reality simply by
attending the General Meeting and voting for the proposal.
But it might be worthwhile to enquire what position Student. Council candidates take on the issue. The question is
worth a long second look. Fifteen hundred dollars, we think,
is a cheap enough price to pay for progress.
(Ever since Raven Editor
Mike Ames wrote his not-too-
charitable review of "Back To
Methuselah"* we've heard
nothing but anguished squawks
from all directions. We'd like
to forget about the whole
thing, but the following piece,
the Players' Club OFFICIAL
reply, was so damn funny, we
printed it anyway.—Ed.)
By IAN CURRIE and
JERRY GILBERT
We sing of mighty Critic Ames
who sees
With piercing scope, who wittily decrees
Damnation of those actors who
would dare
To flaw. That we do not compare
With Broadway or the West of
London's End
We humbly now admit. To
Ames we send
Sincere apologies and grovel
low
To ask if we may try another
show.
We  sing  of  Ames   the   Critic.
He'll outvie
Brooks Atkinson and Davies—
yea!  and Bligh!—
Because   he   doesn't  bloat   his
clever brain
With Drama fundamentals, or
profane
His pen with thoughts of literary style.
Now may we end our happy
song, and pile
Upon the heaps of praise we've
thrown to Mike
Some   things   about   him   that
we must dislike.
He began in what we mistook for a Montaigne vein or
a ploy in print by announcing
that he snored. Assuming that
he was merely being chatty
about some of his more intimate idiosyncrasies, we read on
to discover whether perchance
he also slept on his side with
his mouth open and drooled
on his pillow. We were quickly
disappointed. His subsequent
words made abundantly clear
the unpleasant connection between his stertorous habit and
the play. Now we find a number of things about Mr. Ames
troublesome, the first being
that we suspect the susceptibility of the man—who loom?
about the campus looking
more haunted and doomed
than any Faulknerian protagonist — to anything cheerier
than Tennessee Williams, particularly when the corners of
his mouth are drawn downward in a grimace so pained
that we suspect it could be
engendered only by chronic
dyspepsia.
Ames'   statement   about    li-.
quor to brighten  up the inter- j
missions permits  us  to  attack j
him on  a  number of  nlterna-
tives, the  first  being  that  ap-i
parently  this theatre-goer was j
so  naive  that he  mistook  the j
intermissions for a part of the!
play   itself,   and   desired   thai i
they  be  executed  more entertainingly.   Secondly,   we   wish
to  protest his  turning  of   the
performance into an opportunity for a potation. His immoral
action suggests to us a number
of possibilities:
1. He is too far beyond the
pale to know what everyone
knows: that drinking is not
permitted at campus functions.
2. Even giving him the benefit of the doubt on this last
point, and assuming a twisted
pride in the flaunting of convention, we perceive what any
Psychology 100 student would
be proud and happy to proclaim a "mental set," in this
case a negative pre-play attitude of mind.
3. It was the bottle of his
childhood.
Semantically, he is an astronomical number of miles off
base. Instead of lightening for
a moment the leaden tenor of
our days with a pellucid little
monologue upon some of the
abstrusities of the stage, he
chose to clutter his page with a
collection of rather uninspired
emotive value-grunts. When he
tells us that projected scenery
was "nice and all that," he
seems more like a middle-aged
matron trying to sound like
one of the boys than like an
incisive critic. He then commends an actor for being
sincerely humorous, the implication being that the other sly
cads were falsely so and he
was clever enough to flush the
rotters out. A statement to the
effect that the actors "behaved
like amateur Shakespearian
players" and that they should
have performed their roles
'properly' has no informational
value whatsoever; indeed, this
"properly"  conveys   to   us   an
almost astounding presumption.«
Our amusement at "the cast
was good, too, in an amateurish
way" requires, of course, no
explanation. His idea that "the
cast should not have been so
anxious to over-act their parts"
provides the interesting digression of a rather philosophical
paradox, for when Ames states
that Lilith's last speech "went
on, and on, and on, and on,"
he is showing a cloddish in-
sensitivity t o metaphysical
questions. Since it is immediately clear that "the cast" did
not over-act their parts, the
first statement appears merely
ridiculous until more closely
examined. Doing this, we noted
that he did not say that they
did over-act, but merely that
they were anxious to do so.
Hence we defer ' to Mike's
psychic powers and contend
that in intuiting this impulse
of the actors—that deep down
they were all mighty darn
anxious to cut splutteringly
loose—he has unwittingly become a living solution to something that has plagued metaphysicians for centuries: the
problem of "ther minds."
But the proverbial last straw
was provided by his remark
that Miss Schwenk was
"decently good," in which
judgment we discover a pathetic attempt to pad by stating
the obvious: we find the idea
of a girl whose face is smeared
with zinc oxide and who is
bound from head to toe in
black sackcloth being indecent
on a stage a considerable challenge to the imagination.

U.N. Should Stay
Out of South Africa
United Nations should stay
out of South Africa, Dr. E. G.
Malherbe, president of Natal
University, said Thursday.
Said the visiting dignitary:
"Any attempts at interference by the United Nations in
the domesetic problems of
South Africa would set the
clock back for our culture far
more than they imagine."
Dr. Malherbe was introduced to an overflow audience by
President N. A. M. MacKenzie who mentioned their "very
warm friendship" over the
years.
CULTURE
Said Dr. Malherbe:
"The South African problem is a question of culture,
not merely of color. During
the last century the black people were conditioned by the
Hitler-like Chaka and other
great Zulu warrior chiefs."
"They are culturally still
children . . . they would assimilate a totalitarian system
as easily as a duck takes to
water. Since they have no conception of democratic government it makes the country extremely susceptible to Communism. This is one of the
chief reasons for inhibiting
their representation in government."
TENSION
Dr. Malherbe described the
history of the whites or Afrikaners in accounting for the
present state of tension. He
pictured them as a group
of exploitres or empire builders who would leave the natives to self government when
they were ready, but a distinct cultural group evolved
from the French Huguenots
and Dutch who landed at Cape
Town 300 years ago. "We are
•white Africans just as you are
white Americans," he announced.
The great preponderance of
blacks leave the country in
a continual state of insecurity.
It is a contrast between a few
highly civilized cities and millions of superstitious barbarians. The British, if forced
out, could scatter among the
rest of the commonwealth.
The Afrikaners (or Boers),
have no such homeland to fall
back on, therefore retaining
their position is a matter of
cultural life or death.
LANGUAGE
One indirect result of this
culture is their highly efficient language. It would prove
extremely popular if introduced on the UBC curriculum.
There are no strong or irregular verbs and other linguistic
pitfalls in this 'highly streamlined tongue," which has been
seriously considered as a universal language in place of
Dr. Zamanhof's artificial Esperanto.
Dr. Malan's infamous apartheid (cultural segregation of
blacks and whites) wr.s described by Dr. Malherbe as
good in theory when the situation is considered but inmprac-
tical because of the economic
integration of the various racial elements
APARTHEID
He used a famous anecdote
of ex-President Taft to illustrate Malan's use of apartheid.
Taft, standing on the rear
platform of his election train
when a porter urged him to
come inside., "Why?" asked
Taft "isn't a platform meant
to stand on?" "No suh!" replied the porter, "it's meant
to get in on!"
. Education is the most promising solution to the situation
and with this end in view the
present Nationalist government is devoting over four
percent of the national income towards this, Canada
only spends three percent.
"No other government has
ever done so much to educate
the black people as the current one. It wll take time for
a solution. Push button solutions from outsiders would
completely wreck our system," he said in conclusion.

position of Secretary of Students' Council because I believe she is a person who combines
great ability with long experience.
A former councillor, she was sophomore member in 1952, and since
then has kept in active touch with,
student affairs. She is the President
of Delta Sigma Pi, the women's
honorary sorority, and maintains a
high scholastic average in second,
year of medicine. For experience
and proven ability, I urge all students to vote for Peggy Andreen
for secretary on February 8. HENNING BRASSQ
BETTY ANNE THOMPSON
The secretarial position on our Student Council requires experience, ability, and interest. Betty Anne Thompson, better known to most of us as "Buggs" Thompson has ■
these qualifications.
She has been on the Pep Club
executive for two years, is past president of Varsity Outdoor Club, and
Activities Chairman of this year's
big Mardi Gras, as well as a committee chairman for the successful first
annual Leadership Conference
last fall.
She   has   pxioven   her   interest
through her activities as cheerleader-
during the past two years and her
active part in other campus clubs.
Others have shown their confidence in her abilities
by electing her to the women's honorary sorority early
last fall.
So I urge you to vote for ''Buggs" Thompson on Wednesday. GEORGE ROSS
TIKI GRAHAM
Tiki Graham has the principal ingredient necessary
for a successful USC Chairman, that of wide experience
with every aspect of campus life and activity. Too often
members of Students' Council have
not concerned themselves with minority groups on campus. "Tiki" has.
We feel that it is time someone represented the underdogs on Student's Council. "Tiki" has in addition to his experience as past president of HUS, boundless enthusiasm
necessary to successfully carry out
. * '%;'*-' "'" the- responsibilities of this position.
"  t So  on Wednesday  next,  I ask
you to vote for "Tiki" Graham for
Chairman of the Undergraduate Societies' Committee.
GERRY HODGE
SHOLTO HEBENTON
It gives me great pleasure to present Sholto Hebenton
as  a  candidate   for   Undergraduate  Societies   Committee
Chairman. This postion requires a
person who is a capable organizer,
who can co-ordinate varied student
interests, and who will be chairman
of various standing committees. Having observed "Heb's" activities as a
committee chairman of the High
School Conference Committee, on
the executive of the U.N. Club, and
as an Intra-Mural manager, I have
found him to be a person who has
a keen interest and proven ability.
Coupled with his scholastic achievements in a combined
honours course, these recommendations make him my
choice   for  USC   Chairman. DICK   RIOPEL
ROBIN SCOTT
The election of Robin Scott would provide this campus with a capable, alert chairman
of USC who is thoroughly familiar
with all phases of USC affairs. Robin has served on EUS for the past
two years, and this year as USC
representative. He served on several of the major USC committees
(blood drive, charity, elections).
I ask your support of this candidate who I believe is exceptionally well suited for the position of
USC Chairman.     MONTE McKAY IFC Opens Safety Week
FIFTY-SEVEN   ACCIDENTS
Eight Students
Hurt at UBC
There were 57 car accidents on university lands last year.
In eight of these someone, generally a student was hurt.
One  freshman,   Ronald   Sten-^	
son Lockwood, A 19-year-old [ cars too much of the time for

Drive.
RCMP officers, UBC detachment, in releasing these figures,
pointed out that they in no
way include accidents outside
university lands that may have
involved UBC students.
MINOR
University Boulevard accounted for most of the "minor"
accidents. These are ones classified by the RCMP as involving property damage over $100
(others needn't be reported).
Last year saw 26 such accidents
just along the Boulevard.
they said, with one driver at
the head of the line stopping
too suddenly and thus giving
rear cars insufficient time to
slam on brakes.
BRAKING
One constable quoted the
Provincial Government's Motor-
vehicle Driver's Manual which
gives 54 feet as the minimum
braking distance for a car travelling at 30 miles an hour. Reaction distance at that speed
is 33 feet giving a total of 87
feet needed to stop a car in
time of emergency.
This requirement is rar*ely ad-
Police   sources    blamed    too hered to, especially in the morn-
close   following   by   too   many ing, the constable said.

UNPLEASANT thought it may be, accidents like the one pictured above do happen—but many of them could have been
prevented. IFC officials, who are sponsoring Traffic Safety Week at UBC starting
36,000   LIVES   A   YEAR
today, feel the above picture might do far
more than 1000 words in promoting traffic safety at UBC. That man on the pavement could have been you.
Carelessness, Speed,
Drink, Cause Deaths
North Americans pay the
price of convenience and mobility with 36,000 lives every
year, National Traffic Safety
Council statistics reveal.
Safety officials think this
price can be reduced.
In 1954, the pocketbook of
population was flattened by
36,000 deaths, of which, 7,-
900 were pedestrian fatalities.
Injuries totalled 1,250,000.
Disregard of traffic laws is
the mainspring for many motor-vehicle accidents, say safe
ty officials. Added to this,
is the lawlessness which comes
from stretching luck too far.
The statistics tell the story
of  the   relationship  between
traffic law violation and traffic accidents.
ALCHOHOL
Alcohol is paramount in the
"fact sheet." In 24 out of 100
fatal acidents, a driver or
pedestrian has been drinking.
Speed-maniacs help to chalk
up more accident fatalities and
thus boost the price of motor
convenience. Other drivers
flagrantly ignore laws of right
of way, proper passing; and
traffic officers or traffic control devices.
Pedestrians provoke many
accidents by carelessness when
crossing   streets,   particularly
at intersections.  About  1,500
of pedestrians killed in accidents last year had been drinking.
To reduce the fatality-cost
of motor vehicles, be careful
and observe traffic laws.

RCMP Likes
Atmosphere
At UBC
1     The three men assigned to the
UBC detachment of the RCMP
enjoy   working   with   students
! and   like   the   atmosphere   sur-
j rounding the university.
!     The detachment was establish*
' ed here in 1950, when the Royal
Canadian   Mounted   Police   ah-
I sorbed the old Provincial Police
j and assumed all their duties.
|     The men find students "very
! co-operative" in all matters.
They are not, as most students
think, involved only in traffic
supervision. They are called in
on every criminal offence committed on the university endowment lands, though comparative-
ly few such crimes occur during
the year,
Onp   of   the   officers,   whose
name  cannot   be  used,  pointed
out  several  things  that  account
for most of the traffic accidents*
occuring on campus.
One is the habit that students
have of wandering back and
forth across the malls without
watching for oncoming cars.
Another is the rush of traffic
that crowds the malls and the
boulevards every morning and
evening. Officers say that nowhere else in the city is there
such a concentration of traffic
at a certain time, and that cars!
following one another too closely are a major factor in the
cause  of accidents. <"%"*Ri '1

England Expects
Every Banker
The English writer A. P.  Her-,
fbert once wrote a cheque on a '
'bottle of brandy and sent it to
be   cashed   at   his   bank.   Her-'
fcert's   idea   was  to  show  what
nonsense banks and cheques are. <
Also, how difficult it is to make;
any law that cannot be turned |
to  nonsense.  The  bank  cashed
the cheque, and when it returned through the Clearing House,
the brandy was intact. The bank
didn't see the point of the joke,
foul  it understood its duty.
There's no record of any Canadian bank cashing bottle cheques,
but  last  year one  of  our  com
petitors honoured a cheque written   on   a   hard   boiled   egg.   If
you're an egg cheque fan, we'd
be glad to supply the name of
the bank. However, if you normally   deal   with   the   "Royal,"
■don't think us a sourpuss if we
ask you to use the conventional
cheque  form.   Our  egg  storage
facilities are  inadequate.  In  all
other   respects,   though,   U.B.C.
people seem to find Royal Bank
services quite satisfactory. There
are any number of Royal Bank
branches in Vancouver and environs,   all   keen   to   add   more

be a more agreeable way of
disposing of those loathsome
requirements?
And as if this were not
enough there are further benefits: An athletic pass for all
games—not just football but
basketball and rugger too,
plus first chance at meeting
handsome football stars. Why
hesitate?

such a policy unfair to students.
Alsbury
To Reply
To Kuzych
Labor leader Tom Alsbury
has asked Civil Liberties Union
for the opportunity to reply to
anti-union charges made by Myron Kuzych.
Speech by Kuzych and reply
by Boilermakers' Sam Jenkins
were "only issues of minority
groups" on the closed shop issue
Alsbury  said.
Civil Liberties Union has not
had an opportunity to meet to
decide on the request but CLU
president Al Forrest said Alsbury would "quite likely" be
invited to speak here next Friday.
Kuzych,     unemployed     city
welder, had charged that union
! leaders are "dictatorial" and that
I the  union  closed shop  is  "con-
I trary   to   our   democratic   principles."   He   alsf)   charged   that
the   union   firing   him,   Marine
Workers and Boilermakers, was
j "communist dominated."
!     Jenkins   countered   with   the
charge  that Kuzych  was carrying out his anti-union campaign
under the financial sponsorship
of "capitalists in the horse and
buggy age."

The other day we received
a totter from Dean Andrew.
The Dean wanted ut to write
a column tailing how lies are
made. "Are ties machine woven?" ha asked. Are the spots
of egg on Dr. Shrurn's tie
manufactured, or the result of
•loppy table training and a
slippery fork?" These are questions thai deserve a fair answer.
"Is it true that the crusted
brown stains on Earle Birney's
only cravat resulted from a
nosebleed in 1943? Is it true
that Earle Birney has blood?
I must know" Dean Andrew
whined.
And so today, with no further ado we present. "The Romance of Neckwear" a thrilling documentary article telling how the t i e you wear
came to be around your neck.
(This is not to be confused
with the "Ballad of Sam Neckwear" the ballad of a villaneous Grebe-Snatcher who almost wound up with a rope
around his neck).
The tie bar you are wear*
ing today might have had its
start in the billowing cotton
fields of Alabama. There happy pickaninies wrested the cotton fibres from the clutch of
the wily Boll-Weevil, laughing t o think thai some of the
cotton would end up as white
sheets.
Or perhaps your Tie Bar tie
began in the shaggy hills of
Scotland, where craggy Scots,
their kilts and sporrans flapping in the breeze, chased the
bounding sheep*up and down
the whiskey-soaked glens.
Wherever it began, your Tie
Bar tie took shape in a great
factory where skillful, keen-
eyed workers, reared in the
great tradition of tie craftsmanship, tended their machines with loving care. With joy
in their hearts, they watched
the fibres become threads; the
threads   become   patterns.
As the ties took shape under
their deft hands, in their minds
was but one thought: quitting
time.
From the great factory, your
Tie Bar tie was transported
across mighty oceans by
mighty steamships or across
strange lands by great trucks
to a wholesaling house in Vancouver.
From there, the finest, most
distinguished Ties, (such as the
Collegiate line, of hand-woven
wool in all the nicest colors)
are carried to the Tie Bar, 712
West Pender and retailed for
reasonable prices to discriminating college types.
THIS is the Romance of
Neckwear!
It was a thrilling story,
wasn't it? And just so our
readers can test their new-
found knowledge, here's a
short   quiz   on   ties:
(1) Ties get their start in:
(a) The glens of Scotland.
(b) Kelowna.
(c) Alabama.
(2) What  is  a grebe?
(a) A   happy   pickaninnie.
(b) A Slippery   fork.
(c) Earle Birney's nosebleed.
(3) Distinguished  Tie  Bar  lias
are worn by:
(a) Wily boll-weevils.
(b) Sam Neckwear.
(c) Grebes. )HultiH$A

that the team itself must raise

It was nice to hear the word
of praise about our pages and
their accuracy, Mr. Fothering-
ham. I am sorry to say that I
can't say the same for your
"Vancouver Sun!" That story
on dissension in the basketball
squad is only topped by your
paper's continued insistance that
the hoop Birds are unbeaten at
home. It makes nice copy but
let's remember that UBC did
lose to Pacific Lutheran which
is hardly a disgrace.
* *      *
In looking over a 1952 edition
of the "Ubyssey", I noticed that
All-American basketballer Bill
Russell of University of San
Francisco Dons fame led a touring Calit'ornian squad into action
in the UBC Gym against the
Jayvees. Russell and Co. were
lucky to get out of town with
their hides and a close 45-44
win. Another familiar name on
the tourists roster was Harlem
Globetrotter's J. C. Gibson.
* *      *
Of course, that was a year
when the"Jayvees had a good
argument in claiming they were
stronger than the Birds. The
team boasted such latter Bird
stars as Bob Bone and John McLeod.
Incidentally, McLeod was only
outscored by Russell by a single
point, racking up 10 to the All-
American's 11. Thanks, Al.

the other hand, have managed
to win only one game in their
last ten outings. At their last
meeting Birds came away with
an easy 3-1 win.
With one of the best teams
UBC has had in years, there
is talk that they may journey to San Francisco. In the
past all the soccer team had
to look forward to was a trip
to Sapperton. Bus Phillips
says there is nothing definite
to go on at present; however,
he hopes to he able to arrange
something soon.

the Varsity get their opportunity
tomorrow, weather permitting.
Coaches Albert Laithwaite and
Max Howell are shuffling the
backlines of the Braves and the
Varsity in an attempt to give
those on the second squad the
chance to make a spot with the
Varsity for the trip to California.
The powerful Braves, literally sprinkled with first division talent, are expected to have

Skeptically eyeing the Evergreen Conference schedule,
coach Jack Pomfret leads his
home-loving UBC Thunderbirds
into a big three game series in
Tacoma this week-end.
The Birds play the top and
the bottom teams in the league,
battling first place Pacific Lutheran to-night and to-morrow
and then hopping across town
for a single game Monday evening with the cejlar-dwelling College of Puget Sound Loggers.
MUST   BREAK   JINX
UBC must break its road jinx
on this trip or lose all hope
of finishing in the first division.
Five losses without, a win on
the road mar the Birds sparkling five one loss home record.
Eastern Washington grabbed
fourth place from idle UBC
last Monday with a 80-72 win
over CPS, shoving the Birds
down to fifth place, a half game
behind. With only seven games
to play, it's getting down to
cases for the  Thunderbirds.
Fresh from their series sweep
with Central Washington, Pom-
tret's   team   meets   the   hottest
squad in the league in PCL. On :
Monday, th.- Gladiators swamp-J
eri second  place  Whit worth  by j
a   96-63   count,   setting   a   new!
school   scoring   record    in   the
process. j
GOOD   FROSH j
The Lutes conference record j
is nine wins and one loss, that;
to Central. Their All-conference
forward Phil Nordquist leads the
potent PLC attack, along with
center Chuck Curtis and guard
Roger jverson, both of whom
ere freshmen.
Thunderbirds will not be at
full strength for the series, with
substitute guards Herb Forward
and Stu Madill unable to make
the trip because of medical studies.
The last place CPS Loggers,
with one win against eight
losses to their credit, are easier
competition for the Birds, with
UBC being responsible for two
of their losses. However, the
Loggers are always troublesome and can give any team
in the conference a battle.
NO STARS
Guards Bob Eliason a id Earl
Talman are the best men for
CPS on n team thai lacks any
individual stars.
Next week-end, the Thunderbirds return home, hosting Whit-
with Pirates in two games and
Eastern Washington in a single
game Monday. The following
Monday the Birds wind up their
Evergreen play with one game
at Central Washington.
Then the Olympic - hopeful
squad will settle down to the
serious business of the B. C.
Olympic  Trials.
Other teams participating in
the B.C. eliminations are Alberni Athletics and the Scni»>r City
"A" league's Eilers and Seafuns. m"

PAY BOOST
(Continued from Paqe 1)
UBC, is increased from $30,000
to $158,000.
Conservative chief Phil Govan
charged the Liberal Government
with not being above gerrymandering the ridings. He said
he failed to see a difference
between the proposed commission and the present Registrar
of voters.
Liberal Ken MacKenzie charged the previous Provincial Government with trying to keep
the riding issue insignificant, so
that they could bamboozle the
public. Liberal Ed Greathed declared, "Electoral reform is imperative and the previous Social
Credit Government did nothing
to alleviate it."
CONSPIRACY
The government was again
lambasted by a Socred speaker
who claimed, "they call it a reform, I call it a conspiracy to
get support from the press."
The Labor-Progressives blasted
the Liberals, saying, "are the
Liberals afraid to put their policies before the house?"
Premier Derek Mason summed
up the argument for the bill
stating, "what have the Socreds
done in tin- province that is not
an adjunct to getting votes?
Our Liberal Policy is: If a thing
is good, ke p it. If it is bad, get
rid of it. This is a reform reflecting common sense."
The Votr was called by speaker Terry O'Brien, and the bill
was pas.^- tl by a majority of
28 to 8

Moneymaker
Says   Beck

announced Thursday.

MOCK PARLIAMENT
(Continued from Page 1)
Part will go to teacher training in Victoria, Dr. MacKenzie
said.
"We are always grateful for
any additional grant," he said.
"We have more students and
more services to maintain as the
years go by. If we are to carry
on at all we must have addition*
al funds."
A B.C. Teachers' Federation
official said at first sight the increase seemed to be only normal due to the natural increase
in population.
Howard   Hines,   secretary   of
Vancouver  School   Board,   said j
he   didn't   know   just   what   it
would mean. I
