NFCUS"   Say   Students
Overwhelming student opinion favoured
UBC's withdrawal from NFCUS in a poll taken
around the campus Monday. ,
Although responses varied from a worried,
"What is NFCUS, anyway?", to an apathetic
"Don't give a damn what happens to it," the
general consensus was that the National Federation of Canadian University Students should "go
down in flames."
Students generally seemed to be at a loss
as to what NFCUS actually does for UBC. Said
Arts student Rae Haines: "An organization of
this type should have something more concrete
to offer its student members; however, there
should be some feasible plan for a more workable organization before the old one is scrapped."
Generally favoured as a substitute was the
PSPA-type organization which would be instigated at a president's conference here, in the
fall. "It seems a shame to desert the sinking
ship by backing out," said Third Year Arts student, Sholto Hebington "but with four universities already withdrawn, no amount of 'work
from within' could save NFCUS now."
NFCUS was further criticized as being run
by an inefficient bureaucracy," and for being
an unglamourous organization," and an "almost
complete waste of student money."
However, typifying the general lack ol
knowledge and student apathy shown towards
the whole problem was the remark of one unidentified third year law student who stated "It
doesn't really matter what happens to NFCUS—
it's not that important. The same evils will show
up in a new organization anyway, I guess."

students will vote tomorrow on
whether or not they will withdraw from NFCUS.
NFCUS committee at the university opposed the student council motion to hold the referendum on the grounds it would be
too much work for them to de-
tend NFCUS in such a short
amount of lime and with such
short notice.
They claimed the referendum
constituted a lack of confidence

Dear Sir,
Campus   Joke
Student Court is becoming a campus joke. And when a
court becomes a joke it has outlived its usefulness. For every
little campus prank, charges and counter-charges are being
laid before the Investigations Committee.
The committee scurries around gathering evidence and
witnesses and then decides whether the matter should go
before the Student Court.
The procedure of the Court itself is a joke. Actually there
are no rules of procedure. Some aspiring lawyer usually defends the accused and soon there is a three-ring circus. Witnesses are reluctant to testify against fellow-students and the
"conduct unbecoming a university student." If every time a
student cut-ups at a campus sponsored affair there is going to
be a charge laid, Student Court is gong to become busier than
Police  Court.
The real raison d'etre for Student Court is to placate
Faculty Council and stop that body from taking more serious
action when a serious matter arises. Student Court was not
intended to be, and should not be turned into, a sounding
board for petty student grievances.
Student Council should either revamp the Court or abolish
it. The Spring General Meeting is three weeks away. Council
should have a sensible Student Court policy ready for presentation to the students at that meeting.
I agree that Theologians have
been definitely trifling with
imaginary problems. It reminds me of a wit's definition
of a philosopher. "A philosopher is a blind man in a dark
room looking for a black cat

Dear Sir,
I can see little value in
"R.D.T's" suggestion (Sounding
Board, Feb. 24th) to set aside
an unspecified portion of the
$6000 AMS surplus so Author-
ine Lucy can come and study
at UBC. Not that she wouldn't
be welcome here, but if it were
merely a higher education Au-
therine were seeking she could
find it at any one of scores of
colleges in North America
without coming so far afield;
almost anywhere, in fact, beyond the social canker nostalgically known as the deep
I would suggest that she is
in need of moral rather than
financial support. What she is
attempting, and attempting
very courageously, is to remain at the University of Alabama and by so doing establish a precedent which will enable other colored people in
Alabama to further their education without the expense and
The Federal Parliament, Agriculture Minister Gardiner,
and the impecunious prairie
farmers who can't afford to
spend the winter any further
south than Palm Springs, agree
that wheat is Canada's principal economic problem. Women's Institute halls, pool halls,
community halls, barns, grain
•levators, school houses and
railway cars are filled with
wheat. And the prairie farmers are worried, not because
they can't play pool anymore,
but because nobody will buy
their wheat. In fact they still
haven't sold all of 1953s crop
As a service to Canada (here
sing "Oh, Canada" or "We've
got Bennett and Duplessis so
we'll get along somehow") I
would like to point out a few
ways in which the wheat surplus could be diminished.
Marie Antoinette once said
about the starving peasants . . .
"If they haven't got bread, let
them eat cake." The significance of this reference Is that
now the peasants can eat cake,
bread, cokies, biscuits, scones
and even tea bung. In fact the
more flour-filled delicacies
they eat the better.
Another gastronomical delight that consumes flour is
that  bastion of Olde England
and Victoria the crumpet. Contemporary politicians should
realize that by popularizing the
Imperial Tradition of crumpets
and tea French-Canada might
quite possibly be persuaded to
accept the Old School Tie, the
Stiff Upper Lip and other formidable Anglo-Saxon peculiarities. Why perhaps, dazed by
tannin and heavy with crumpet,
the government of Quebec
might coordinate its foreign
policy with that of Canada.
In British Columbia we sport
miniature (Japanese) totem
poles, in the Maritlmes sprigs
of heather are typical, In Quebec postcards of the Plains of
Abraham orove popular, and
in Ontario ticket stubs from
the Stratford Theatre drew
gasps of admiration — but
what can the three Prairie
provinces  boast as souvenirs?
Well, of course the answer to
that dilemna is wheat. What
could be a more vivid memento of three glorious days in
Drumheller than a little plastic
bag filled with No. 1 Marquis
Why dig a tunnel under the
North Arm of the Fraser? Why
build a bridge over it? Why not
just fill in the stretch where a
crossing is desired with wheat?
That's right, millions of bushels
of wheat. When it has all
settled it might make quite a
satisfactory base for a fast, perhaps toll free causeway.
Or as an alternative, wheat
kernels could be packed tightly,
as sawdust is, into clean, easy--
to-handle fire logs. For the folk
on the Prairie this handy
source of fuel might easily replace oil, natural gas and coal
for heating the modern home.
Take, for instance, a brilliant commerceman. Now if he
was awarded an elevator full
of wheat for outstanding
scholarship it would be a true
test of his ability if, as an
embryo business magnate, he
could sell it. lx\ this way his
scholarship would be both lucrative and practical. If this idea
is adopted the Canadian government would be grateful for
a progress report.
How about a 64 million
bushel question?
There exists only one reliable solution to the glut of
wheat in the nation's economy
— make liquor out of it. If you
can bottle it, name it and it
can be poured than tne people
will drink it.
hardship of going to a Northern
state. In short Autherine has
no desire to attend another university—that, to her, would be
taking  the easy  way  out.
We could easily show our
"stand on racial problems" by
sending Autherine a letter or
telegram encouraging her in
her mission and proving that
UBC, like unsegregated campi
everywhere, is rooting for her.
She already has the vocal and
possibly the material support of
the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People. For example, a girl
with her economic background
could hardly afford the court
battles she is undertaking without generous financial help
from somewhere.
If a sum were voted to aid
the cause of people like Autherine it would be -, better
channeled through the NFCUS
and aimed at prying open the
forbidding gates of racial prejudice rather than helping one
individual. Students the world
over are and always have been
faced with financial difficulties. To allocate student funds
in such a manner as "R.D.T."
proposes shows more sentiment
than realism.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Here is a poem which I
think has some clear ideas on
the matter of philosophy.
Know this, that every man is
To choose his life and what
he'll be
For this eternal truth is given
That God will force ho man
to heaven.
He'll   call,   persuade,   direct,
Golde with  reason,  love  and
In nameless ways be good and
But   never  force   the   human
Freedom and reason make Us
Take this away, what are we
Mere animals and just as well,
The beast may think of heaven
and hell.
Bravo, Mr. Henke.

Stressed Emotion
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I agree with Mr. Henke that
religion has stressed emotion,
to the exclusion of reason.
As Pierre Cerosale has said:
"God is truth first of all,
even before love. For in the
long run, love based on a lie,
although it be a pious one,
must be paid for dearly by
breakdown and disaster. Truth
first of all, bitter pill, hard to
swallow at times, but the only
universal and infallible remedy."
Henry Westwick,

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Albert Henke stated in a recent editorial::
"The churches of the world
appear indifferent to 'the cries
of two-thirds of its people suffering every day from malnutrition."
Just thought I could lend a
hand to Mr. Henke's cause by
adding a few facts and figures
which make a stimulating story
even  better.
In December, 1955, the American government decided to
release considerable amounts of
surplus food such as corn, wheat
and rice for overseas distribution by Church service agencies which would have only to
pay the cost of handling and
shipping. Church World Service
and the Christian Rural Overseas Program of the National
Council of Churches in the U.S.
(comprising 81 Protestant denominations) are raising an estimated $7,000,000 needed to
pay freight costs of their now
expanding food program.
Churches of the National
Council spent about $1,000,000,-
000 in 1984 on food, clothing
and shelter for overseas needy.
(Vancouver Province, Nov. 10,
In 1955 CROP distributed
more than 24,000,000 pounds
of food in 25 countries (CROP
Newsletter, Feb. 15, 1956). An
example of emergency service
rendered was the gift of $10,-
000 for the purchase of food
on earthquake-stricken Min-
In Canada last year, a courageous little organization—The
Unitarian Service Committee
—shipped almost 500,000 lbs.
of food and relief supplies as
well as 155,000 pounds of clothing, with absolutely no discrimination as to the race or creed
of the recipients. (USC Annual
Report,   1958).
The United Church of Canada, in approximately four
years, donated $750,000 in cash
relief contributions, which included more than $121,000 for
flood-stricken areas of Britain
and Holland, and $50,000 to
areas such as Hong Kong, Indo-
China and Jordan. (United
Church Observer, July, 1955).
In the same period, 1,400,000
pounds of clothing were distributed to some of the world's

Dear Sir:
The following lines were retrieve'! from the cafeteria on
the margin of your issue of
February 10, against a letter
concerning Professor Shrum:
Let critics hold their peace if
Shrum should sleep,
His labours sure have corned
a little ease.
His inner core divides:  one
part may leap
Through  ears   and   on   the
outer world may seize;
The rest revolves about his

Eyes closed, releasing hidden

"Misunderstandings" between fourth year Home Economic
students and faculty have been "straightened out" department
head Miss Charlotte Black stated Monday night.
"We are very glad to have received suggestions from tha
girls and will act upon some of them," she said.
A three member student committee  reported  that
four moves have been or will be taken resulting from
suggestions of the students.
They are;
1. Girls will be allowed in the Home Ec building Monday*
and Fridays after 5 p.m. to work on sewing assignments. Girls,
were prohibited use of the Home Ec equipment for after hour
assignments in past.
2. Timetables will possibly be re-arranged next year.
3. Possible reallocation of marks in some subjects will be
effected next term.
4. Changes in schedule have been made for some of the
girls who were scheduled to complete weaving assignments
during final exams. It was one of the major complaints against
the Home Ec staff.
The student committee met with Miss Black last week after
their previous suggestions had been discussed in a special
faculty meeting.
"Relationships  between   students  and  faculty  have
always been friendly," Miss Black said. "Some of the
previous statements made in The Ubyssey are preposterous."
The student committee, three fourth year girls, will report
back to a fourth year Home Ec general meeting shortly.
Tickets go on sale today at the AMS office for the UBC

The concert is scheduled for Wednesday noon, March

The soft-spoken quartet, which features graceful involuted arrangements of original compositions and popular
standards, has been a consistent winner in jazz-critic polls
for several years.
Led by bearded, Brooks-clad pianist John Lewis, the
quartet also features Conni Kay on drums, Milton Jackson,

So began a Ubyssey editorial
in appreciation of this band and
of its Conductor-Director, Arthur Delamont.
And playing marches and reviving frozen rooters, waning
spirits lrexactly what the band,
under Mr. Delamont has been
doing for the last 17 years.
Formed in 1939, the Band
today has around 35 members,
all UBC students. All have come
to the band after years of playing in one of Mr. Delamont's
other bands, such as the Kitsil-
ano or West Vancouver Boys'
"It's necessary that the/
should have had some experience
first," Mr. Delamont explained,
"because they must be able to
play at sight, especially at a
football game."
This sight repertoire includes
marches, light overtures, dance
music and show tunes. "They're
mostly well-known works that
have been arranged for a brass
band," Arnold Emery, one of
the trumpet players said.
"Which is why brass - band
playing is so fascinating," he
added. 'lYou get up and you
blow and it's as though you
were in a symphony, only the
brass instruments carry the melody instead of merely accenting the beat."
Members of this year's band,
all of whom echo Arnold's
views are Bud Trussel, Robin
Scott and Stuart Scott, trombones; Arnold Emery and John
Davenport, trumpets; Ron Stewart, Dave Hughes, Murray Mc-
Andrew, and Bob Way, clarinets; George Morfitt and Jack
Reynolds, sax players; Terry
Grommett and Dave Fraser,
drums; Tom Pickett, Garry and
Lome Ginther, basses; Bill Davenport, baritone horn; and Dick
McManus, French Horn.
Arthure Delamont, the man
whose se 1 f-appointed job is
to weave these boys and their
instruments into a beautiful,
brassy pattern of sound, has been
active in band music for over
30 years,
A professional Union musician he has taken his Kitsilano
Boys Band on several highly
successful tours in Europe.
UBC's Varsity Band will next
be heard at the Physical Education Display on March 9th. And
at every and any Pep Meet,
football, basketball or hockey
game  in  the coming years.

ridiculous complication, the
play revolves around the love
affair of the lovely Celie, played

the Crimson Tide of Victoria
24-9 Saturday, handing the Victoria Reps their worst drubbing
i^ years. The first McKechnie
oup match of the season was
all over by half time, when the
UBC fifteen rolled up a 21-point
Bob Morford opened the scoring for the defending cup champions after about five minutes
of play, kicking a penalty goal
from the 30 yard line. Varsity's
smooth-passing backline finally
paid off, after several near
misses, when Roger Kronquist
moved into the backs to make
the extra man, shaking Gary
Sinclair loose. Sinclair was forced out of hounds on the two
yard line, where Pete Tynan
bolted around the short side of
the scrum for the try. Morford's
conversion atempt from the sideline was wide.
Don Shore initiated the play
which scored Varsity's second
try, taking the ball at his feet
from a loose scrum, then scooping it up and hurling a long
pass out to Dave Morley. Morley
carried all the way to the five
before passing to Mike Chambers, who dived over. The conversion by Morford was good.
A promising backline movement by Victoria ended abruptly, when Jack Maxwell plucked
the ball right out of the Victoria winger's arms and raced
30 yards, unmolested, for the
try. Morford kicked a magnificent conversion from the right
sidelines, 40 yards out.
Ted Hunt's fake reverse, which
is proving itself an increasingly
effective manoeuvre, set up the
next try. Hunt pulled his favorite play on the Victoria 30, two
Crimson Tide backs ran into
each other, and he passed to
Don Spence who carried the
ball the rest of the way. Morford
kicked the conversion, making

trademark of MacDonald Park,
sent Varsity pop kicks floating

laps. Ten minutes elapsed before
Varsity scored again, and it was
a try which testified for the
wonderful condition of the Birds
fifteen. In three almost continuous plays, the backs, always in
*^jfttt¥$*(i dampAttg
position, moved the ball down-
field until a Victoria back got
left behind. Spence drew his
man and passed to Jack Maxwell who scored his second try
of the afternoon.
The Crimson   Tide escaped
being whitewashed in the last
ten minutes of the game, booting
two penalty kicks from squarely
in front of the posts. They also
scored a try of sorts, when an
attempted   field   goal   by   the
Victoria   fullback   glanced   off
two UBC players and into the
arms of a Tide forward on the
ten. The man was so obviously
offside to Varsity players, that
they watched appreciatively as
the fellow dashed for a try. Ted
Hunt applauded mockingly. Referee Bill Dunbar ruled the play
onside, as the UBC players had
attempted   to  block   the   kick,
and in touching the ball put the
scorer onside.
Considering that Varsity have
been confined to indoor workouts for three weeks, their performance was very impressive.

UBC's kicking was very effective, thanks to a Victoria
fullback who bungled with remarkable consistency. Varsity
misted some golden opportunities for trys.
Gary Sinolair blocked a kick
by the 'Tide fullback, picked
the ball out of the air, and
with one man to beat, passed
outside to Spence who was
yelling for the ball. Unknown
to Spence, he was three yards
out of bounds.
Maxwell missed two trys, both
chances the result of Ted Hunt
kicks. Early in the game, Hunt
cross-kicked to Maxwell, all
alone near the right sideline,

in a provincial cup contest. The
tie ran Birds unbeaten streak
to 12 for this season. The game
was deadlocked at the end of
regulation time and neither team
was able to score in the overtime  period.
The Celtics took a 1-0 lead
in the first half on a goal by
Vic Marrow. After the breather
Birds went right down and Bruce
Ashdown   equalized   the   score.
Ex-coast leaguer Malcolm Mc-

ahead again but it was shortlived. Bruce Ashdown notched
his second goal to tie the score
on a sizzling direct kick from
25 yards out.
The game ended in a goal
tending duel between Celtics
Ralph Hall and Birds Clive
Hughes. Both goalies came up
with some miraculous saves to
avert any further scoring.
The Birds were favorites for
Saturday's game by two goals.
However, Saturday's contest
could have gone either way. The
Celtics, who are in a division
lower, proved that skill and
experience can be matched by

score knotted at 27-27 just after

wide open and give UBC a 37

From that point the incomparable John MdLeod personally saw to protecting the lead
with a 17 point fourth quarter
and a total of 35 for the contest.
Of course, it was impossible to
overlook the presence of Barry

Lyall Levy in the 65-49 win

UBC won the game in the
final quarter, controlling the
play and a 36-35 lead at the
three-quarter mark. Alberni

' and soon were on the short end
of a 53-43 score. Birds coasted

the aid of a lovely freeze to win
handily, 58 53.
McLeod toped Birds offensively with 19 points followed closely by Jom Pollock and Ed
Wilde with 14 and 13. Bissett
led Alberni with  12 points.
However, a!l was not joy with
the Thunderbirds at Alberni as

starter for the final playoff
Saturday's game al UBC was
a thriller for the 1500 fans.
The Thunderbirds started slowly

the second quarter thanks to the

Content to stall out the clock,
the collegians began to wilt before the efforts of Pickel, Burt-
well, and Ron Stuart. "But by
spreading the SeaFun defense
all over the floor, UBC was able
to break McLeod loose for many
a driving lay-up, as Big John
accounted for 17 of his team's
19 fourth quarter points. Sea-
Fun were a soundly walloped
squad at the end, not able to
cope with one of the best Bird
performances of the year, in
the 65-40 win.

Swim   Squad
Drops  Meet
A powerful University of Idaho swim team defeated UBC-
56-28 in a meet at Vancouver's
YMCA pool Saturday.
Dan Frances turned in the.
best performance for the Varsity
team, as he missed by only Vfc
point of taking top spot in the
diving. Ken Doolan, who might
have won the event, was unable to attend the meet.
The freestyle relay team lost
out in their bid for a blue ribbon when one judge gave the
decision to Idaho, one to UBC,
and one called it a tie. First
place was awared to Idaho because it was a UBC meet with
UBC judges.
Coach Lesler Lustig says his
boys are improving, and that
backstroker Ed Lee, and Milt
Sky, who may become Varsity's
best freestyle man, have now
joined the team. Both boys previously swam for UBC.
The next meet scheduled for
the squad will be a Conference
date against Western Washington next Saturday at Cheney.
The only Evergreen Conference opposition the UBC swimmers have faced this year is the
Western Washington Vikings. In
two meets with Wesl ?rn, UBC
has recorded a win and a loss.

lead after the tourney winds
up Saturday evening. A play-off
will be arranged between the
tied teams to decide B.C.'s representative in the Olympic

This week-end, the Varsity
ruggermen invade the lair of the
University of California Golden
Bears. As always, UBC is up
against the odds in Berkley, with
the small playing field favoring Cal's brawn over Varsity's
speed and skill. The cement wall
paralleling the pitch, that curves
in near the end lines is none
to conducive to sideline scampers
into any dirt by the wingers.
But Albert Laithwaite's team
is just rounding into top form
in spite of the recent unplayable
weather during which Laith-
waite thought of the Bears practising daily in the sunny climes
of the Bay area.
This could be the year that
the World Cup returns to UBC.
Closer to home, the Thunderbird ice-hockey squad entertains
University of Alberta at Powell
River Friday and Saturday. In
the two game total point series, UBC will make their annual
atempt to rescue the Hamber
Cup from Alberta. The weak
Birds, outscored 62-4 on their
Colorado trip, will not get as
stiff opposition from Alberta.
Also, star defenseman Cliff
Frame and Bob Gilhooley could
rejoin the Birds for this series.
Another consolation is that news
doesn't float out of Powell River
as fast as it does from the metropolis of Denver.

A little well-aimed heckling
is fine, but the players, the
coach, nor the majority of the
fans appreciate that small band
of spectators whose enthusiasm
bubbles over into outright childishness at most Bird basketball
games in the War Memorial
Gym. The "kids" get another
chance at some self-control this
week-end, and let's hope they
have better luck in controlling
And a final note on the un-
publicized sport of gymnastics.
UBC, represented by a team of
five freshmen, held the University of Washington varsity to a
66-46 win in Seattle, Saturday.
Deiter Weichert paced UBC with

High School Conference Reps
To Tour Campus This Weekend
Next Friday and Saturday will
see scores of bright, eager young
faces roaming through and about
our ivy halls. They will be the
delegates to the ninth annual
B. C. High School Conference.
About 130 of them will converge on the city by boat and
train, Thursday night, hailing
from neighboring Washington to
far away Whitehorse.
A few have relatives to meet
them but the majority will be
greeted by members of the reception committee and driven
to private billets.
These visitors are the eyes
and ear? of tomorrow's universi-
ly .stufii rits and the Conference
committee headed by Dave Man-
son has taken pains to guar-
r nle; they see and hear the
right things.
With their numbers swelled
to 200 by 'he addition of local
delegates they will descend on

day round of talks and discussion groups interspersed with
lighter activities such as the
Olympic Trials basketball game
and culminating in a banquet
and dance on Saturday night.
The purpose of the conference
is to acquaint high school delegates with all aspects of campus life both social and academic.
Each high school participating selects two representatives
(usually one boy and one girl)
to come and receive first hand

I did my wash
this morning.
Dried it too.
So did 7.
Don't know what
I'd do without my
automatic dryer
these wet days.
about 5$ worth of electricity dries the
average load of washday doings.   Those few
pennies will never be missed.  But how you'd hate to
part with the convenience of having a dryer at your
beck and call. Talk to your appliance dealer - and outfox the
weatherman every washday !
