 SECONDERS  SUPPORT   NOMINEES
"p*>
Candidates  For Treasurer
In seconding Bill Esselmont for the position of* Treasurer of the Alma
Mater Society I'm aware that he will, if elected, be facing what is probably
the most difficult job on students' council. However,
I have no hesitation in recommending him to you as
a person who has all the necessary experience and
ability to handle this job.
Bill, a married man and living in Acadia Camp,
is in second year law and will receive his B.Com.
. degree this spring as part of the combined commerce-
law option.
In his years on campus he has been active in all
phases of student affairs. In 1953-54 he was co-chair«
man of the Mardi Gras Committee. He served this
year as secretary of the M.A.A. and on the Men's
Athletic Committee ,the policy forming student-
faculty body which charts the course of men's athletics on campus.
With his commerce and students' affairs background, I am sure Bill
is the man to face such onerous problems as financing the Brock extension
and coordinating the A.M.S. business office under a new manager after the
retirement of Mr. Maunsell.
Bill is the only man for the job. John   McLeod, Comm. 4.
Bill Esselmont
I have chosen to second Al Thackray for the office of Treasurer because
I feel it is my responsibility. Next year the Treasurer will keep accounts
totalling more than $300,000.00. In addition, the Council will complete plans for the Brock Extension which
will involve another $350,000.00. The man elected to
control these large sums of money, as well as a vote
on council decisions, must be fully informed about
the issues and he must have proven his ability. Ar
Thackray's record leaves no doubt that he meets these
qualifications.
At Oak Bay High School he was treasurer of the
Student's Council. Last year Al was elected chairman of all undergraduate clubs. While holding this
office he was instrumental in initiating a financial
system which alloted the $6,000.00 budget among 70
clubs on a more judical per capita basis. His colleagues
on student's council showed their confidence in his ability by appointing
him to the Brock Extension Committee dealing with financing and allocation of space.
If you wish to insure a sound financial year in 1955-56 vote for the man
you know can best do the job—vote Al Thackray for your A.M.S. Treasurer.

DEAN    ANDREW   SAYS:
'Campus Needs
Arts   School'
Dean Geoffrey Andrew Thursday called for the establishment of a School of Fine Arts on the campus.
ALADE AKESODE point* an accusing
linger at "Big Brother" Ralph Sultan for
reducing mankind to "a pulp of flesh."
Sultan,   Professor   Heslop,   Akesode   and
Professor Read took part in a heated debate
between Artsmen and Engineers at noon
yesterday. Redshirts won.

Engineers   Decide
Engineers Are "OK
a
A large audience, almost unanimously   of   engineers,   almost    unamimously    decided
that   "engineering   inventiveness    is   NOT   a   threat    to
humanity," Thursday noon in
the Engineering building
In a lively debate between
Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Society and the Engineering faculty,  ASUS president
Alade Akasode and Professor
Stanley Read condemned engineering     inventiveness     for
'gradually  reducing mankind
to a pulp of flesh."
"BIG BROTHER
"Big Brother" Ralph Sultan,
along with Professor Heslop
of the Applied Science Department staunchly defended
their cohorts against the blast
by maintaining that "engineering is one of the proudest
accomplishments of mankind."
In response to first speaker
Akasode's accusation that engineers were "destroying the
beauties of nature to make
room for television monstrosities on roofs." Ralph
Sultan charged that "the
artsman is biting the hand
that feeds him when he attacks the engineer."
®(b®(om
Cloudy with occasional light
rain. Remaining mild. Some
fog in low lying areas.
INGRATITUDE
"I can't get over this ingratitude of the humanists,"
he said. "If it weren't for the
.roofs over their heads built
by the civic engineers the rain
would drip all over their
manuscripts." Amid cheers
from the engineer-infected
audience Sultan concluded.
"Without the inventiveness of
mankind we would still be
swinging through the trees by
our tails."
FLUSH TOILETS
Dr. Read arroused the minority artsmen of the audience
with his claim that "most engineers don't invent anything.
Engineering continues to complicate life until we become
more and more satiated," he
said.

He   made   the  suggestion   at-
a Civil Liberties Union meeting j
investigating  the enrollment li-j
mitations enforced in the faculty
of medicine.
Said Dean Andrew:
"I would sooner see a Fine
Arts School established on the
campus before more money is
spent on  the medical faculty."
Andrew was speaking in answer to Dr. J. Mather, head of
the UBC Public Health Commission, who had mentioned that
the fees Medical students pay
cover only about one quarter
of the total cost of their education.
The controversy arose when
several professors suggested to
CLU officials that an investigation should be launched to see
if discrmination exists in faculty
admission requirements.
They looked into requirements
of each faculty and found that
limitations exist only in the faculty of Medicine, which must
exercise this policy in order
to keep enrollment to a sixty-
student-per-year limit.

Not   Impressed
Lately, we have been receiving a publication from Toronto
wliich calls itself "Champion,"—"The voice of young Canada."
The newspaper in question aims itself at Canadian youth in
general, and, we suspect, enjoys a fairly wide distribution. Its
pages are filled with cheery news of strikes, anti-colonial warfare, pictures of wholesome athletes, and the occasional item
on what Canadian students are doing to combat what is termed
the "U.S. Sell-Out." There is even a page devoted to nursery
tales for the very-young set—with political morals, of course.
"Champion," as you may have guessed by now, is one of
those hundreds of communist publications aimed at the younger
generation all over the world. Down here at The Ubyssey,
we're practically inundated by them; there's "New China,"
and "Rumanian Youth," and a score of other brightly lithographed magazines from behind the Iron Curtan. In addition,
there are literally hundreds of press release and posters flooding in all the time, exhorting us to take up the cudgel against
colonialism, or to attend the World Conference for Democratic
Youth in Vienna, or something. The latest press release, for
instance, reminds us that February 21 is the "International Day
of Youth and Student Against Colonialism;" it doesn't tell us
what we're supposed to do about it, but we suppose we should
recognize the great occasion by demonstrating in front of
the British Consulate.
We'd better say, here and now, that we haven't a single
objection to this stuff being circulated. We've been convinced
of the necessity for freedom of the press ever since we studied
John Stuart Mill in English 200. We're not going to condemn
these publications.
Rather, we're going to offer what we think is constructive
advice to all the editors of all the communist youth publications.
Boys, adjust your propaganda to fit the needs of your
subjects. For all we know, the youth of Europe and Asia may
be vitally concerned about strikes and anti-colonial warfare;
but in Canada—and of course the USA too—the youth is different; they've been raised in an atmosphere of prosperity, and
they won't respond to the same old appeal.
If you want to get the support of North American youth,
your first step should be ot print something that North American youth will read. You've got to be subtle, and you've got
to be interesting.
Believe us, American youth won't be converted by phrases
hke "Imperialist warmonger" and "filthy capitalist" and all
the others that appear in issue after issue of your magazines and
newspapers. N6r will they be impressed by the inumerable
pictures of happy USSR peasants dancing under the haystacks
during the Russian equivalent of the coffee break on the old
collective farm.
What you need, boys, are some slick, highly polished Madison Avenue public relations techniques; the resultant product
would be no more spacious than the present article, but it
would assuredly accomplish a lot more. If it's minds youVe
trying to win, you'd better do a little thinking about the types
of minds you're after, and accordingly make your propoganda
appealing to them.
It isn't true, as you seem to think, that youth is the same
the world over; different economic conditions produce different
attitudes. And what may impress a Rumanian university student will arouse nothing but amusement in an American
student.
If you want to convert us, give us something readable;
we're tired of looking at pictures of happy collective farm
workers.
We're not impressed.
Rim of Hell
By MEPHISTO
Columnists of downtown
papers, old Ubyssey editors,
and even members of the student body have lately credited
this vile rag with being sober,
mature and, it has been hinted
at, refined. Well, the truth may
as well come out—at the present time the editors are making their last desparate attempts to fight off this morbid
trend. Of course they haven't
been able to completely stop
the flood, in fact not enough
to assure local critics that the
paper is keeping up its odious
tradition.
But what has gone into the
paper is nothing to what Stan
Beck and his top-line Associates have tried to suppress.
For instance, here is a letter
to the editor from a British
Properties student:
EXPERIENCE
Dear Sir:
I had a most delightful experience the other morning
which I am sure would be of
interest to your readers. As
I was walking Samuel Pepys
(my landlady's toy Saint Bernard) across West Van common I noticed a snaggle-toothed
boll weevil crawling out of a
No Parking sign. Imagine my
surprise, a snaggle-toothed boll
weevil appearing at this time
of year. I wonder if anyone
else has seen a snaggle . . . etc.
I remain, your etc.,
Walter Crimp.
What is more, readers frequently petition for a gardening column, fashion page, press
gallery reports from White
Rock Municipal Council, etiquette hints and a full page
comic section. This maturity
business can go just too far so
these requests have been turned
down.
But the rot has set in. The
proletariat strata of The Ubyssey staff has now become constructive, intelligent and even
cultured in its writing. Despite
plucky attempts to hurriedly
rewrite the reporters' material
and destroy the originals, the
editors carelessly exposed some
o,' this subersive copy to my
sight.
Take for instance the sports
page—amongst the discarded
copy was a report on the recent
Evergreen Conference Scrabble
championship. It went something like this . . .
ADD   AN
"By adding 'm' and 'interpretation i'otsa.Sse.ecmfwt
pretation' to 'is' (thereby forming 'misinterpretation') Walter
de Natured scored 45 points
with five double letters, one
tripe word and a bonus for
leaving his opponent with two
q's and a k. The latter gentleman, Emory Perkins of Srew
U, played a sporting game but,
so to speak, had his middle
wicket  uprooted."
LA PROCURER
"Leon La Procurer was a
little known 18th century
poet who choked three wives
to death and wrote pessimistic
limericks."
Of course The Ubyssey executive may be able* to suppress
the present trend by brainwashing, but don't be surprised
if they reply with massive retaliation. You know, like signing contracts with "Flash" or
Assumption College's "PUrple
and White."
Humourist   Shulman   s
Exposes   Pubsters
This one is a reprint of an
advertisement. The writer, Max
Schulman, was the dean of
American college humorists as
an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota. Today,
in the autumn of his years, he
writes humorous blurbs aimed
at college audiences for Philip
Morris cigarettes, as well as
short stories and plays. The
following article reveals the
inner workings of a typical
college newspaper.
Look at the campus newspaper you are now hblding. An
ordinary object, you think? An
everyday convenience? Something to be taken for granted?
Faugh, sirs and madams!
Faugh, I say! Don't you know
what prodigies of skill and
labor and organization and art
and science go into the making
of your campus newspaper?
Come, I'll show you. I'll take
you to a typical office of a
typical newspaper on a typical
campus.
The editor—let's call him
D. Fermin Bohorquez, a typical
enough name—calls his staff
together first thing in the
morning. "All right, you guys,"
he says, lighting a Philip
Morris, which, naturally, is the
favorite cigarette of newspapermen, and of anybody else who
knows a hawk from a handsaw,
"All right, you guys," says D.
Fermin, "this here ain't no
ladies whist society, this here
is a newspaper. So get out
there and get the news. Get
it first, get it quick, get it
right! Ed, you cover the ag
campus. Phil, you cover the
school of mines. Wally, you
cover home ec. Sam, you cover
buildings and grdunds. Ethel,
you cover the men's gym. . . .
All right, get going!"
With many a laugh and
cheer, the reporters light lip
Philip Morrises, favorite cigarette of the young and agile,
and dash away on their assignments.
D. Fremiti retires to his
office to smoke a Philip Morris
and write a fearless editorial
scolding the university for not
buying patches for the worn-
out elbows of the chess team.
On the rim of the copy desk
three   rewrite   men—Tensing,
«CT
Hillary, and Laverne — sit
poised and expectant, waiting
for the reporters to phone in^-
their stories. They smoke Philip
Morris, favorite cigarette of
the poised and expectant. Ten-
sing's phone rings first; it is A
Ed calling from the ag campus.
"Stop the presses!" cries Ed.
"Got a scoop! Hunrath T. Siga-
foos, professor of curds and
whey, has just sold his article
"The Romance of Butterfat"
to the Drovers and Poulterers
Monthly."
On another phone Sam is *•»
calling from building and
grounds. "Tear out the front
page!" he cries. "Got an exclusive! Harold 'Pop' Wishno-
grad, superintendent of build*
ings and grounds, today an*
nounced the purchase of a new
doormat for the vestibule of ^
Burton Hall. The last doormat,
it will be recalled, was eaten
by a pledge named Norman
Harringay for his Chi Psi inni-
tiation."
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the
city room, Ganglia Questover,
vivacious and ubiquitous gossip .
columnist, sits smoking a Philip
Morris, favorite cigarette of
the vivacious and ubiquitous,
and typing out her chatty, informative tidbits: "Maureen
Valgerholtz, popular Theta, announced her engagement last
night to Webster Scuff, Oliver
Jenkins, Cosmo Erskine, and f
Walter Penn Dowdy. Wedding
dates have been set for June
9, June 24, July 5, and July 18,
respectively. Good luck, Maureen! . . . Irving 'Behemoth' An-
selm, popular fullback, blew
out 120 feet of esophagus yesterday while inflating a football. Good luck, Irving 'Behemoth'! . . . Robin Kroveney,
popular Deke last year, this
year popular pfc. in the U.S.
Army, writes friends that he
has been convicted of deserting
his post and will be executed
on April 28. Good luck, Robin!"
And now, friends, we take
our reluctant leave of the
drama, the action, the tension,
the glamor, the churning, the
seething, the roiling, the sturm
und drang of the wonderful
world of journalism. Aloha,
journalism, aloha!

Gordon Shrum
Edtor,
The Ubyssey:
Among the many distinguished scholars at the University
of British Columbia is one man
whose transcendant genius surpasses the bounds of mere specialized knowledge. This man
is, of course, Gordon Merritt
Shrum, O.B.E., M.M., E.D.,
M.A., Ph. D., F.R.S.C, M.H.A.
Not only has this gregarious
man demonstrated to the entire city, indeed, to the entire
province, his pre-eminent brilliancy in the physical sciences,
his courage, gallantry, and
leadership in the armed services of our country, God bless
her, and his administrative
genius and economic acumen
in housing, surpassing even
the efforts of the commerce department and our glorious captains of Industry in similar
endeavours, but has also shown
a grasp of foreign policy and
international affairs equaled ia
the past only by Prince Met-
ternich and in the present only
by John Foster Dulles
We, students of this university deeply interested and earnestly concerned in the trends
in world affairs, particularly in
relation to recent scientific developments, were pleased to
observe this pre-eminent scientists among the listeners at
the fine informative lecture
given by Professor Soward last
Saturday night.
Reassuring evidence of the
sublime genius of the humble
and unassuming scientist, Gordon M. Shrum, O.B.E., M.M.,
E.D., M.A., Ph. D., F.R.S.C,
M.H.A. was evident. No other
reason than his own personal
brilliance and insight into
world affairs can account for
the fact that he slept through
much of the lecture.
Yours very sincerely,
George Androx RUMOURS JAM
SWITCHBOARD
•^v A rumor that the Varsity
Band is presenting a free concert Tuesday noon has jammed the Ubyssey switchboard
with calls from excited students.
Typical comments were:
"Congratulations," (Darrell St.
Laurent, Honors Agric.) "Varsity Band? Never heard of it."
(Ubyssey editor) "This Tuesday?" (Clarinet player, Varsity Band). Until it completes
its investigation, this paper
is unable to release any further information.
The Tie Sat
Today, to take your raind off
essays, examinations and Tiki
Graham, The Tie Bar presents
its first annual Limerick Contest. The rules are simple. Just
read the limericks supplied,
compose a line to fill the blank,
fill in the missing line in any
one limerick, and take it down
lo the Tie Bar (712 West Pender).
With the purchase of any tie
In the Bar, you become eligible
pt enter the contest. First prise
Is a $5 gift certificate, second
prise, $3, and third prise, a $2
flft certificate. The contest
Closes February 18. We'll do
the judging, and we're incorup-
Qlble, although you can try us
Ii  you  want.
Many contests are difficult,
but this one is easy. For instance
fcere is a sample limerick:
There once was a playful young
surgeon
. .. (you write this line) . ..
He was heard to exclaim
I did it for fame
The results were very
encourag'in.
Now for the second line, you
crossed the sea on a sturgeon"
er anything else that strikes
your fancy. Simple isn't it? Now
on to the contest itself. Here's
ihe first contest limerick. Good
luck!
Ladies  who lean  against lamp
posts
And whistle at men as they
pass
Are not selling weiners
Or used vacuum cleaners.
.And when you're finished
grappling with that one here's
another:
Ron Bray has hair on his chest
It's   revealed   when   he  takes
off  his  vest
But even more queer
Is the hair in his ear
That one might be a bit tough
if you've never seen Ron so
we'll give you a hint: They
don't call him "Old Pigtails" for
nothing.
But whether you wear pigtails
or a pompadour, you'll like ihe
mess of ties Doug Hillyer has
laid in at the Tie Bar (712 West
Pender). And if you wear
French cuffs, dig the personalized, baked-enamel cufflinks»he's
selling at four dollars. You name
your own design, Hillyer will
have them specially made.

FIRST MEMBER AT LARGE
BRAD CRAWFORD
I am seconding Brad Crawford because I am confident that
his personality and ability are more than equal to the tasks
facing him.
He is a past president of Magee High School and a present
member of the C.U.S. Council. His reputation for enthusiasm,
efficiency and organizing ability has earned him his appointment to the P.S.P.A. conference executive. |
His sincerity to serve the student body marks him as the I
M. A. A.
i
man for First Member at Large.
Bob Morford, P.E. 4.
KATHY ARCHIBALD
Although Kathy has been at UBC for only one year—she'"
took  her Senior Matriculation  at Kelowna High  School  in
1953 where she was also President of Student's Council—she
has managed to get in the centre of student activities.
She is on the Editoral Board of the
Raven, active in all phases of newspaper
work on both the Ubyssey and as campus
social representative of The Vancouver
Province and social chairman of the Arts
Undergraduate Society. She also played
a part in the performance of "Back to
Methuselah" during the Shaw festival,
is executive member of the Civil Liberties
Union and active in other clubs.
But her abilities have been applied
to an even wider extent off the campus
in the last three years. She was commentator on a coast-to-
coast radio program for teen-agers in 1954, writing her own
script, and in 1955 she was Women's Commentator and Continuity Editor for a TV station in Eastern Canada. She has
also toured Canada and the United States as guest speaker
for the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews.
It is time to make use of her experience and talents on
this campus! Peter Krosby
TOM TOYNBEE
It is my firm conviction that in Tom Toynbee the men
of the University have a candidate who, if elected, will become the driving force which is needed
to stimulate Men's Athletics on our campus.
Athletically, Tom has played football
for one year and has been a member of
the rowing crew for three. In 1954, Tom
3    captained our Thunderbird eight which
won the  BEG  Championships.
While   captain   of   the   crew,   Tom
gained  invaluable  experience  in  public
relations which is essential for successful university athletics. Let the man who
led us to victory in the BEG, lead us dynamically in the MAA.
Dick Macintosh, Arts 3.
MORRIS HUBERMAN
Morris Huberman has held various executive positions
f ? while on campus. He is active as chairman of this year's "Picasso Panic" Committee, acting secretary for the "Traffic
and Safety Committee' and financial editor of the campus publication "Legal
Notes" a legal annual which is subscribed
to by the profession all over B.C.
In these and many other activities,
Morris can show a record of experience,
capacity to work, and more important—
a strong interest in student affars.
H .Robin Brammath
W. A. A.
CHARLOTTE WARREN
I second Charlotte Warren, because I, like all her other
supporters, feel she is a capable person. This was displayed
last year when she was Chairman of the
Women's Athletic Directorate.
Char is known for her enthusiasm,
hard work, and good nature. She is interested and active in campus sports, as
she plays on the UBC badminton and
grass hockey teams, and was president
of the Big Block Club. Not only is her
athletic ability outstanding but also she
has proven her value as a cooperative
committee member and an energetic leader on council this past year.
In view of Charlotte's excellent record let's give her the
opportunity to continue her good work. Warren for W.A.A.
Norma Johnston
BUZZ HUDSON
Ralph "Buzz" Hudson is in Second Year Law in the combined course of Commerce and Law. His five years on the
campus give him the experience and
maturity of outlook to successfully handle
the job of President of the Men's Athletic
Association.
Buzz has played four years of Thunderbird basketball, three years of football, and was co-captain last year of the
grid team. He has worked with Bus
Phillips on many occasions and knows
the responsibilities involved.
I urge you to vote for Buzz as the
best man for Men's Athletic Association
Director. Ted Hunt, 'P.E. 3?
GORDEN LAURIE
It is my privilege to second Gorden Laurie for .the position of MAA for the following reasons.
%    Gorden has had two years of experience on M.A.A.
# He is a scholarship student.
# He is sales manager of the Engineer's Slipstick.
# Gorden was M.A.A. representative at the Leadership,
Conference.
Q    He is actively interested in all sports.
It is my opinion that the above listed qualifications would-}
enable Gorden to carry on successfully the program initiated;
this year by Bob Hutchinson.
w. u. s.
SALLY ROBERTSON
I feel most confident that Sally Robertson has the necessary
qualifications for WUS president, so I am seconding her nomination.
Sally is serving her second year with
Phrateres, this year as president. In this
position she has proven her ability as a
leader and coordinator of women's activities. Sally gained valuable experience
and a working knowledge of the Women's
Undergraduate Society while serving as
Phrateres representative this year. She
has shown her interest in campus affairs
by taking an active part in the Leadership
Conference and High School Conference
committees.
.*' I urge you to give your vote to Sally Robertson for
president of the Women's Undergraduate Society.
Maureen Kennedy, Com. 3.
BERTA WHITTLE
I  am  seconding Berta  Whittle's   nomination   for  W.A.A.
president because I am firmly convinced that she is the most
capable person for this position.
This year Berta has been executive-
member of WAD and WAC which formulate women's athletic policy. Her abil-
ty and sportsmanship have won her a
place on the Canadian glass hockey team. I
Her organizational experience, high
scholastic average, enthusiasm in student affairs and orginality of ideas make
Berta Whittle a completely qualified
candidate for W.A.A.  president.
Maxine Nelson,  Home Ec.  3
LINDA GATES
I am seconding Linda Gates' nomination for president of

PSPA Conference
By  MARIE  GALLAGHER
For the first time in the history of the Pacific Student
President's Association, a Canadian university will be host to
the delegates.
UBC will welcome at least
2200 delegates from at least
50 American colleges all down
the Pacific coast. The conference commences Wednesday,
May 9, and ends Saturday, May
12. The 'prime purpose of the
conference is the exchange of
ideas concerning different policies of student government,
council financing and athletic
costs. A discussion of particular
Interest to UBG delegates will
be election procedures designed
to improve upon, according to
Ron Bray, "UBC's antiquated
electoral system."
Last year at the conference
held at San Diego State College,
UBC delegates Rod Bray and
Gordie Armstrong "blitzed" the
executive of PSPA until they
agreed to hold the 1958 conference at UBC. One of the mere
important results of the 1955
convention was the leadership
conference held last October at
Camp Elphinstone.
Aside from the business angle,
Which includes six seminars and
speeches by such notables as
President MacKenzie and host
chairman Ron Bray, extensive
plans have been made for the
entertainment of the Americans.
Local committee head, Jim Mac-
Donald, assisted by Brian Smith,
has arranged for a cruise to
Nanaimo Thursday night, a
dance Friday night in the Georgia Hotel ballroom, and a wind-
up bash Saturday night at the
Commodore. On Wednesday afternoon the delegates will be
taken for an aeroplane tour of
the lower mainland, courtesy of
TCA.
Buzz Ortengren is in charge
of arranging dates for the delegates. Approximately 200 representatives are expected and of
these 150 will be boys. Now
is the time for all good coeds
to come to the aid of their country.
Pacific Student President's
Association meets annually to
compare methods of student
government and problems of
staff-student relations. Edward
R. Murrow is one of the founders of the association.

AGGIES, ENGINEERS FIGHT GRUDGE
CAME FOR AKESODE TROPHY
Aggies and Engineers will grapple for the Akesode
Challenge Trophy at half time of the UBC-Whitworth
basketball game in the Memorial Gym tonight.
The grudge basketball game to be played between the
the Redshirts and the Greenshirts is novel in that each
player is required to wear a boxing glove on his right hand.
Also at half time, Eric Whitehead will present UBC
rower Glen Smith with the athlete of the year runner-up
award.
Aggies have harbored a grudge against the engineers
since the Bronco Busting crown was won from them by
the wily Redshirts.
McGill Students Pay For
Damage By Rioters
Montreal (CUP)—A petition to censure McGill Student
Council for granting five thousand dollars to the Montreal
Transit Commission has been defeated.
The grant was made "by way
of reparation for damage caused" in the recent tramway riots
in Montreal.
The petition submitted by the
students stated that "the students of McGill University feel
that they should not accept collective responsibility for damages in a riot in which only
a small minority of the students
participated.''
The students also felt that the
SEC did not act in their best
interests in granting money to
pay for damages in the riot incurred by the raise of fare, rather than taking a stand against
the fare-rise.
The petition also stated that
the large majority of McGill students were not involved in the
riot. Most of them "behaved
themselves in an orderly manner," the petition said. "These
demonstrations were taken over
by other groups as an excuse
to commit wilful damage."
WUS Charge
Repudiated
WUS, the representative of coeds on campus, has been criticized by various individuals for
failing to contribute materially
to the university.
The criticism has been successfully repudiated in the purchase by WUS of a wall-length
mirror for the women's washroom in the Library. The funds,
approximately $75 were raised
at the Coed-day dance in the
Brock.
Next year with the advent
of billiard tables in the Brock,
WUS plans to have male addicts of the game instruct girls.

Professor Heslop sought a
compromise between the technical and non- technical peoples of the world so that

greatest playwrights of all
time.
CHALLENGE
"The play is a challenge
that young Canadian actors
seldom have an opportunity
of meeting," Mrs. Firkins said.
"We chose the play largely be
cause so many of the personal
and social problems are still
in existence today."  .

Queen's Paper Called
Cheap Gutter Rag
Kingston: (CUP) — The Arts Journal, special Arts Faculty
Issue of the "Queen's Journal, was termed "cheap gutter rag,"
and "garbage" by some of its readers.
One reader said the Arts issue
contained a "particularly vicious" piece, which would tend
to bring disapproval to the whole
university. The article under
fire, entitled "What All Men
Should Know About the Sport
of Queen's," concerned the game
of "Chesterfield Rugby," in
which the unidentified writer
said 96 per cent of Queen's students engaged.
UNFORTUNATE
The editor of the Arts Journal, Jim Bethune, said that the
appearance of the article was
unfortunate, and apologized for
the incident.
The article contained such
lines as:
Any male or female is eligible (to play chesterfield football . . . you must be willing to
start at the bottom and work
up . . . (before you start) make
sure the playing field is clear of
all non-eompetitors, since their
presence will only mess up the
plays and stop you from scoring

Damage New
CNR   Train
Saskatoon (CUP)—Canadian
National Railways officials today were still trying- to assess
damages to a train that during
the weekend carried 243 University of Saskatchewan students
to Prince Albert for an exhibition hockey game.
CNR officials said cleaning
crews had to jam open the doors
and "hold their noses" when
they went into the new steel
air-conditioned cars to clean up
after the celebrating students
departed.
With one exception, superintendent O. E. Berringer of the
CNR said, the five coaches were
in disgraceful condition and a j
thorough job of wrecking had
been caried out in the baggage j
car. !
The exception was the coach
occupied by the Huskies hockey
team which played an exhibition
with the junior Prince Albert
Mintos.
The remainder of the train had
to be "sloshed out with hoses."
The railway is conducting an
! investigation.
About 40 of the student group
! were said to be responsible. In
I worst   condition,   CNR  officials
j said,   was   the   baggage   coach,
■ occupied   by  the  orchestra  and
others.    Students    broke   every
window and hurled out all railway  gear carried  in   the  event
j of trouble or accident, including
(signal   equipment,   axes,   picks,
; snow shovels and the like.
Four of the five coaches, said
the officials, bore marks of
liquar consumption. Windows
were broken or cracked. One
bucket seat was ripped out and
thrown somewhere along the
right-of-way.

In a preliminary to the Saturday game, Jayvees close out

The Pirates are currently in
second place in the conference
and have little hope of overhauling front-running Pacific Lutheran. Earlier in the season at
Spokane, Whitworth just did
hold on against a UBC rally to
edge the Birds in a 68-58 win.
ALL CONFERENCE STARS
Leading the Pirate attack are
center Marv Adams and guard
Jack Thiesson. Adams, who was
an all-conference guard last year,
bears the brunt of the scoring.
Thiesson, also an all-conference
selection, is described by Pomfret as the "best two-handed
set shot artist in the league."

start South Hill swam to a 1-0
lead.
Mainly by the antics of captain Bud Trederickson and despite George Steele's water wings,
the Birds managed to have the
game cancelled.
There have been a few
changes in a Bird lineup that
has lost several players through
different causes. In goal as usual is Clive Hughes, a former
member of the Vancouver City
XI.
Giving Hughes able protection out front are captain Bud
Frederickson at center half,
flanked by fullbacks Ian Todd
and Harry Nicholson. In the
persons of Jack Butterfield and
Ralph Phelps the Birds have
two of the best half-backs in the
league.

now has Dave Wood at left

Eastern to bring their season's
record to seven wins and three

But the Pirates have a more
impressive record in exhibition
games, holding wins over Gon-

Washington State.
The Thunderbirds are in a
two way fight with Eastern
Washington for fourth place in
the conference standings. At
present the Savages have the upper hand but are none too comfortable with the Birds only one
half game behind in fifth place.
On Eastern's home floor a

Rowers Recruiting
Drive Big Success
By DAVE MANSON
As a result of the Rowing Crew's "go for broke" recruiting
drive, 45 new rowers are working out nightly in the gymnasium.
Headed by rangy ex-hammer-4>
promising prospects Archie Mc-
Kinnon and Lome Lommer, all
first year men with only fall
training, the newcomers are fast
absorbing the driving spirit
which carried last year's Varsity and Jayvee Crews to international rowing fame.
Weekends offer no let-up in
the training programme, with
coaches Frank Read and John
Warren cracking the whip over
the heads of the entire U.B.C.
contingent when they take to
the water in the work barges.
With the high spirit there
exists a lust for competition, and
the first is but a month away.
Plans are nearing completion
for a home and home series
with Oregon State College, in
which both Varsity and Jayvee
boats are expected to race.
The Thunderbird Crews will
be out to maintain their perennial hold on the infamous
"Egg Cup," emblematic of their
friendly rivalry with the Oregon
boys, but they expect a tough
battle from the ever-threatening Beaver Crews.
Finances for this meet and
others are expected to come from
the annual U.B.C. Rowing Club
Dance held at the Vancouver
Rowing Club. The date will be
set shortly for the near future.

Now leading the league by

The Jewelers squad exhibited
a tendancy towards close checking and quick recoveries, slowing Varsity down considerably.
