Pink Clouds Over UBC
A long series of pink clouds have drifted close to UBC
within the past week trodden upon with dainty feet by five
erstwhile candidates for the presidency of the Alma Mater
The obscureness and evasiveness of'the candidates platforms is matched only by the* bewildered attitude of students.
Almost all candidates are advocating the refinancing of the
Alma Mater Society so that such things as increased Ubyssey
circulation, added aid to clubs, and more free entertainment
will be implemented.
The point which most candidates seem to forget is that there
will be no $10,000 surplus to be spread around next year. While
the same fixed costs remain in force, a drop in enrollment will
take place and wipe out any higher revenues.
One candidate has filled a small pamphlet with proposals
which are nothing more than a series of student gripes. He
lists them but doesn't manage to show ways in which they can
be changed. These problems have plagued students for years.
No one has found a solution for them, and unless someone
comes along who can change human nature, it doesn't seem
possible that any one will change them in the future.
Several candidates advocate the lowering of administration
costs to various campus organizations. Not one of the candidates has concretely stated how he proposes to do this. Good
administration is a primary necessity for the Society. The
Ubyssey believes that any slash in administrative costs would
result in a lowering of efficiency of service to the student body.
Almost all the candidates want the return of "true college
spirit" to the campus. It can be argued that candidates for
AMS presidency should indulge in things somewhat more concrete than "true college spirit."
Another candidate wishes to remake the Student CouncU
so that several more persons sit on that body. He did not state
whether some positions would be abolished, and as for remaking
the constitution several persons have been working on this
exact problem since last term and have come to no agreement
It's time candidates for office began putting their propoasls
down in black and white instead of penning a conglomeration
of obscurities which students neither understand nor care about.

Committee turned out in full force
for the occasion but under somewhat
assumed names.
Heralded by an enterprising trumpeter and a long, red plush carpet,
the committee members arrived dressed in tuxes and formals and were
announced as counts, countesses, emperors and czarinas. v
Typical of the "decapitalled capitalists" was John Graham, well-
known Zeta Psi, who wore a pre-
shrunk tux, well above his ankles,
a black shoestring tie, and a hairdo
reminiscent of the barber shop quartette days.
Music was supplied by Keith Watson's orchestra and the committee
supplied entertainment in the form of
a chorus line and a singing quartette.
Students at both Acadia and Fort
Camp have evidenced strong concern
over «the rumoured raise in rents at
these camps.
Dr. Gordon Shrum, chairman of the
University Housing Committee, said
that "both camps have to carry their
own operating and maintenance costs
—and they're not doing that."
Rent at both camps averages forty-
eight dollars a month, and the increase is rumoured to be anywhere
from two to seven dollars; may be,
provided operating and maintenance
costs cannot be sufficiently reduced.
Dr. Shrum has been holding conferences with representatives from
both camps in an effort to determine
what can be done to reduce these
costs rttther than raise the rents.

"This move by Council has not done

the Pubsters. Hay put Pub through
a last minute warmup last night and
announced that his team was in tip

"We'll'walk all over them," he announced.

sinful ways and thus lessened their
chances for victory. Flabby, aging
Jim Sutherland was seen heading for
his usual haunt — a lower beer hall
in downtown Vancouver known as
the Georgia Hotel.
Most other Council members retired,
behind closed doors, not wishing students to see the debauched and degrading actions that are only natural
to them.
In short, it looked like the usual
thing was in store — Council would
go down to Ignominious defeat and
the Publications Board would hold
high the banner of clean living and
healthy youth.

More Trade With
Soviet Russia
"Increased trade between east and
west is one way of preventing wars"
stated Dr. Barnett Savery, head of
Philosophy and Psychology Departments at UBC, to the newly formed
Students' Peace Movement at a meeting last Friday.
Dr. Savery attributed much of the
antagonism between east and west
to historical reasons.
"Western intervention in the Russian
resolution, non-rocognition in the
twenties, and non-denazification of the
Ruhr ara .some of the reasons that the
USSR is distrustful of the West" he
Antagonism in the west is fostered
by the communist doctrine of the inevitability of communism and their
dreams of a communist world.
It was his opinion that wars could
be caused by economic depressions
and he felt that countries should
strive to keep their economic position
smooth and stable.
"If more people would make their
voices heard for peace," he announced,
"wars might be prevented."

John Haar States Platform
Legion president John Haar stated
that his platform was based on two
promises, student activity and a sound
financial basis.
He advocated continuance of the
present austerity program. He stated
that its continuance is necessary fnr
maintaining a sound financial cushion
tor the future.
Haar said he would begin the custom of presenting a periodical report
bt The Ubyssey to create a better
understanding of the problems facing
Student Council.
He also suggested the formation of
a council of coordinators to insure
Che success of every function, held
under the sponsorship of the AMS.

Isherwood Plans Reorganization
Foster Isherwood presented his plan
for reorganization of the Alma Mater
Society which would have Undergraduate Societies representatives
sitting on Council.
If elected he stated he would call
a meeting of all undergraduate societies to effect his plan. He said once
the plan had been drafted by the
group it would be submitted to students at a general meeting for approval.
He stated he would like to see
responsible administration to revise
the AMS code and constitution in
accordance with the Societies Act
under which the AMS. operates.
Treasurer of Engineering Undergraduate Society Charles Walker stated
that the watchword of his campaign
was "college spirit."

The blood — if indeed they have any —
Of Student Council will run red upon the
floor* of the gym today when they foolishly
tike on the Student Publications Board in a,
you should pardon the expression, basket-
ball game.
Last week, the Pub took a 100-0 victory
over flabby council when they won a scheduled game by default. Referees awarded the
game to the faultless Pubsters when Council
hid themselves in their office and refused
to coma out.
Students will have an opportunity to see
the flabby bodies that characterize council
and the litheness of Pubsters, kept in tip top
condition through clean living, will be only
too evident.
This cherished tradition in Alma Mater
Society history has in the past always resulted in victory for the Publications Board
and resounding defeat for Council despite
their dirty, underhanded tactics.
Students interested in mayhem and Justifiable homicide are cordially invited to attend
in the gym at 12:30 p.m. today.
Miss Somerset Sets The Pace
Professor Dorothy Somerset, the English
department, and the cast of "Masses and
Mil" deserve the hearty congratulations of
the entire university.
"Masses and Man" leaves anything We
have seen on this campus in many years
far behind.
Miss Somerset and her cast displayed the
initiative, imagination, and sheer hard work
which campus drama has so long needed.
The non-naturalstic theatre, with its attempts to cut through seeming reality to the
real core of life, is, itself, a great step forward in the evolution of the arts and Ernst
Toller's renowned play represents the. finest
work in the field.
For years the Players Club has presented
us with an infinite series of stock chestnuts
competently enough performed but contributing nothing new to dramatic art.
Expermentation- after all, is the legitimate
function of university theatre. Professional
stock companies can be relied upon for mere
entertainment. Students and the general public expect and deserve something more daring
from a university.
Miss Somerset and her cast left the
audience gasping and silent with their vivid
portrayal of the working class struggle as
exemplfied in the attitudes of Communists,
Socialists and "bourgeoisie."
They have shown the way. We hope- the,
Player's Club will follow.
Ini his Corner       by jim banham
"The Inspector General" certainly isn't
the best Danny Kaye picture that Hollywood
has made, but it will do until another comes
along. The producers have given audiences
a liberal dose of Kaye and sold the basically
good plot short.
The plot, remotely based on a Gogol play,
depicts Danny as a medicine fakir peddling
Yakov's elixir in Napoleonic times. Run out
oitown witb Yakov, his boss, by the towns-
people, Danny is mistaken for the dreaded
%'% J'"e'        ' *
Jrjflpector General in the next town he ambles
into. In the process of ridding the town' of its
Corrupt mayor and council, Danny wins the
feeart of a scullery maid and performs several
pongs in his characteristic gibberish.
Debating the roie he should play before
tha townspeople, Danny manages a four
headed duet with himself, but his best routine is a gypsy drinking song during which
thjg audience is held in suspense as the hero
toys with a glass of poisoned wine. During
all the songs Danny's wide range and well
controlled mugging manage to stir up enough
|aughs to give the film some pace and virility.
The picture falls down in one or two
spots, notably in a banal meating scene done
in fast motion, and in not letting Danny feel
the meat of the little guy who suddenly finds
himself a big shot.
Discerning movie-goers and veterans with
a flair for battle accuracy will undoubtedly
dub "Sands of Iwo Jima" a picture with a
split personality. The directors have spliced
a number of actual combat shots into the
film which make much of the synthetic Hollywood scenery seem like a romp on an obstacle
When the marine heros of the story are
not taking islands they are depicted as either
toying with women or getting blind drunk.
Only in one scene does the synthetic
Hollywood battle come close to actual combat. In taking Tarawa, leathery John Wayne
and his squad come about as close as film-
dom will get to the immediacy of action. On
Iwo Jima, the scenery degenerates into ^
series of papier mache rocks and un-volcanio
white sand. Some of the actual combat shots,
which show an urgency of movement on the
part of soldiers, are worth the price of admission in themselves.
Once out of battle, the combat veterans
make the picture look more like a soap opera.
John Wayne, thrown into the arms of a harlot who is the mother of a child, utters probably the corniest line in movie history on
viewing her child—"Into each life some rain
must fall." With the taking of Mount Sura-
bachi on Iwo Jima- the directors inject the
final banality by stopping the entire war so
a private can read dead John Wayne's last
letter to his infant son. All the directors have
done in "Sands" is to indicate that the great
World War II picture has not yet been made.
The graphic combat shots in "Sands of
Iwo Jima" bring to light a modern cinematic
banality — namely, the newsreel. The degeneracy that has set into this medium of
public information since the war ended is
Nothing short of appalling. All that newsreel
cameramen seem to do these days is dally
over shots of leggy girls sunbathing in Florida or riding surf boards, or imbecilic sequences showing animals in funny hats.
The five major companies that distribute
newsreels are, I understand, experincing a
public attention slump. It's no wonder — so
continually do they insult public intelligence.
The need for newsreels — intelligently cut
.ind edited — is more urgent today than at
, ny other time. Two mediums, The March
ol Time and This Modern Age, the second
produced in England, while they dwell on one
subject, are coming closer to fulfilling the
newsreel's function than the newsreels themselves.
It's time Paramount and Warner Pathe,
to name but two companies, smartened up
and started disseminating intelligent news
instead of the nonsense that movie patrons
are currently forced to sit through.
What*s Going On  by bob russel
The   prevalent   feeling   concerning! that   is  amazing,  since  the  subject,
"Masses and Man," which was presented by the English Department
two nights last week, was that the
production was an unqualified success,
A little more than 1500 people saw
this play. A small part of the audience
was disappointed with the production, which may indicate a reactionary if not immature attitude. The majority were so influenced that a passionate discussion may burst forth on
the more mention of the title of the
play. Indeed few intellectual events
that have taken place within my
knowledge on this campus have caused
such fervor. Indeed, since the theatre
of ideas, and here I mean valid contemporary significant ideas, is a new
experience to most, everyone feels
entitled to a view, and Is more than
willing to propound it.
It would seem that the theatre is at
laat achieving its rightful place in
the life of the undergraduate.
From the point of view of the excitement that this 'new' type of theatre
has caused, the production was successful to an immeasurable degree.
Here is a play that offers no insult-
but rather a challenge—to the student's Intellect. How pleasantly surprised everyone seems to be at the
authority and the individual, the importance almost to holiness of the individual, the negation of the right
of revolutionary communism to sacrifice man to save man, has been predominant in the minds of our greatest
thinkers for these thirty years. It is
a problem that everyone is compelled
to decide for himself.
Horn much longer these ideas will
remain significant is a pertinent but
unsolvable problem. But "Masses and
Man" will be significant long after
that date. It contains the elements of
great drama, perhaps even the elements of great tragedy. Its humanitarians stated in the last scene, that
he 'who acts may only sacrifice himself ls a message that deserves consideration in any point in history,
past or future.
It is a play that demands skillful,
'imaginative, competent production;
lighting, choreography, choral speech,
montage, must all be handled by a
director who has political, poetic, in
fact intellectual maturity and Imagination to a high degree.
The demands on the audience are no
less great. The speech of the guide
to the heroine apply equally well to
the spectator-participant in this or
any great play of ideas: "The road is

so well rewarded is a great tribute to
Miss Somerset and to the English
Too late, many people now realize
that it is their personal tragedy that
they missed seeing this play. Few of
Vancouver's amateur actors and especially directors, who for some
strange reason or other seem reluctant to go to plays, saw this production. It is a tragedy, for this production deserves to be a milestone, a
turning point, in Vancouver theatre.
It should prove to those responsible
for producing Vancouver's theatrical
fare that Vancouver audiences are
ready for more intelligent plays and
more advanced production techniques
than they are receiving. But it cannot do this if those who produce Vancouver's plays failed to see this production.
It is not only for them, however,
but for the students and theatre-goers
in general who missed this momentous
production, that I join my voice with
the many in unhesitatingly recommending that this production be repeated as often as it is possible, it
was a good production, an Important
production, and for the development
of both audiences and production
groups it should be a significant production. Let it bo repeated.
It will be noticed that I have avoided
critical comment on the details of

enough to be present. Miss Pentland's music seems to have the lumln-
ous spark of a creative genius. Whether she will continue to develop in
stature is a matter for conjecture, but
to those who know h?r, she is a
dedicated woman. Her music is the
personal expression of a true artist.
The recital was in every way a dis-
tiinguished event. Thc music waa consistently interesting and the performances were for the most part
authorative. The presentation was one
of thoughful devotion, completely devoid of personal glorification. There
was only one object in the minds of
the performers; that of serving the
music. The appeal was to the intelligent listener and the enthusiastic
response of the audience indicated
that the appeal was successful.
It is indeed an important week for
the university when such a recital Is
offered simultaneously with such a
similarly self-effacing event as the
production of "Masses and Man." In
both cases we have concrete examples
of one of the greatest services that
universities can offer in the field
of entertainment. By the shunning oi

designate as "popular" entertainment
Solid Color
On the program were a Quartette
for Strings, a Song Cycle, a Sonata
Fantasy for piano and four brief piano
This Quartette is a most ingratiating
work. Especially beautiful was the
lyrical slow movement with its graceful interwinding of instruments. The
rythmical intricacies of the final movement were cleverly wrought.
The Song Cycle was set to poems by
Ann Marriott. These lyrics have a
distinct feeling for the natural beauties of Canada and are almost Sand-
burgian in flavor. The music served
the words admirably, gracefully accentuating the sweep of the poetry.
The vocal line seemed extremely
hazardous, making great demands on
the   resources   of   Soprano   Frances
The most mature and complex work
was the Sonata Fantasy, an attempt
to synthesize ln one movement, tho
main characteristics of Sonata and
fugal forma. The extreme unity of
form and economy of material makes
lor difficult llste*ibi}j and on a
single hearing one reaps few reward*.
More immediately appealing were
the "Studies in Line." These four
little miniatures, which have been
both published and recorded, would
make welcome additions to any pianists repertoire.
This concert will be followed by
one of a similar nature when the
music of Jean Coulthard Adams will
be featured. This will take place at
the end of February.

Platforms Of Five President
And Two Treasurer Candidates
Ptttr d«Vooght
"If I am elected as President of the
Alma Mater Society I will endeavour
to execute my duties and obligations
to that degree most beneficial to the
student body. In particular I will give
special attention to:
1, Establishment of a cooperative
student bookstore.
2. Raising funds to complete the
Memorial Gymnasium in the light
of present inadequate plans.
9. Increased budgets for deserving
clubs and undergraduate societies—
this being possible since the AMS
debt Is now paid.
4. Athletic scholarships.
I consider myself capable of effecting these proposals since my expert-
. . . Internationalist
once in student government, campus
organizations, international services
(ISS) and athletics makes me particularly cognizant of these problems and their possible solutions."
I earnestly ask your support.
\     PETER de VOOGHT.
John Hoar
I submit the principal points around
Which I have built my platform. This
program, which I would carry out if
elected, is directed to the re-creation
of student campus spirit and at the
same time is intended to keep the
AMS on a sound financial basis.
1. To continue the present so-called
austerity program with slight relaxations as the year progresses. This
3s directed at the establishment of a
financial "cushion" so as to permit
an efficient administration in future
years. At the same time to foster
a number of promotional programs,
such %* ttoi**#allingharn Invasion,
which can be,carried out without any
cost to the AMS.
2. To establish the custom of submitting, via The Ubyssey, periodical
progress reports by the council. This
is aimed at a greater understanding
between students and their council
with regard to vital issues which
arise during the year.
3. To endeavour to re-instill In the
student body the now sadly lacking
"spirit" which has vanished from our
campus. In order to do this I suggest
fhe establishment of a Co-ordlnators
Council composed of one representative from each club, organization or
faculty. This council will permit a
close liason between the council and
student organizations.
4. With a sound financial policy and
an aotive student spirit it will be
possible for your council to actively
at least investigate.
$16,000 per year Is too much.
4. Greater use of USC—with no increase in USC powers.
5. Office reorganization such that
there will be someone at the AMS
information desk during all office
6. A quality 1951 Totem.
7. A student directory that will
come out on time.
8. Expansion of this year's "Cooperation—not Antagonism" policy between faculties.
, 9. Accent of the now^ancient BCE—
AMS controversy over student transportation rates to the Public Utilities
10. Some form of code revision such
that the vice-president of the AMS
shall be a member elected tjy the
campus as a whole—not by any segregated minority group. '
11 A series of free films, under the
sponsorship of USC In cooperation
with the Extension Department.
12. Adequate posting of Student
Council minutes where all can see
13. Precedure revision such that
the executive of any campus organization shall receive ample warning if
it is to be discussed at a Students'
Council meeting.
... 19 pointers
14. Policy revision such that no
group which is dissociated from the
AMS shall  spend  AMS  money.
15. A collection system among janitors which will bring all lost and
found articles to the Brock.
16. E: coae-agenient of a more adequate programme for Teachers' Training, Social Work, and Nursing students, in view of Ihe fact that they are
off the campus much of the time, and
cannot enjoy bsnefits shared by students in other courses.
17. Active cooperation with thc
Charities Committee to continue this
year's extremely successful policy.
18. In the event that bookstore prices
do not decrease, the sale of such supplies as paper, pencils, ink, etc., at
cost price through the AMS and agitation for the removal of the 3 percent sales tax on textbooks.
• 19. Enforcement of the following
policy: That the Students' Council
shall not govern the students—it shall
be governed by them.
Any question you may have concerning the above programme wUl be
answered by return mail if you will
address your inquiry to
Gill Haggert,
Office of the Students' Council
Campus Mail.
A vote for Haggert—the man with
the 19-point programme and the experience   to   carry   it   through—is   a
vote well ctist.
Foster Isherwood
In standing for the position of president it is my desire to present a plat-
wieldly, but will always respond to
the voice of the students.
2. Responsible Student Government
through revision of the AMS code
and constitution in order to protect
the majority of the students from
furher fee increase and also an equitable distribution of these fees to all
3. Administration which will attempt
to cut down the cost of operation, and
which will guarantee and press for
prompt action in all needs of the
students, eg.
a. Publishing a student directory on
,b. Improving the bookstore service.
4. Cooperating In all LSE and Athletic undertakings to ensure their
continued tuccess and expansion.
These are not rash sweeping promises, but they are such as can be properly and honestly fullfilled.
Through this program I think it will
be possible to achieve a form of student government more, satisfactory to
one and all.
Charlie Walktr
I intend to bring a return of college
spirit. A young energetic leader with
the support of the students and with
interest at heart will make this The
Canadian University—a title it deserves.
I will!
1, Develop the newly established
athletic assistance scheme, to attract
student athletes to the university.
2. Provide more free entertainment
eg. free football and basketball games.
Fewer jobs this summer will mean
less money on the campus.

McKechnie Cup
On Friday night, lanky Art Phillips,
turned out to be the star of the night
as he swooshed many a neat trick
shot under the outspread arms of
Bob Pickell, Leaf centre.
It appeared that Phillips' main intent was to foul Pickell out of the
game, but big Bob refused to buy
and so Art took the points anyhow.
Late in the game on Friday, John
Forsyth received a kick ln the tide
of the leg that caused a bad charley
horse. As a result, the high scoring
pivot-man was out of all but two
minutes of the Saturday night fracas.
The following night, two old second stringers saw action as starters,
Southcott in for Bell, and Phillip*
in for Forsyth.
Again Phillips looked good with his
•mart ball handling, and Southcott,
who Is developing fast, really stood
out with his left handed push shot.
But Reid Mittehell wis the big star
for the Saturday night affair at "UBC.
The high flying guard looked better
than he has all year, and that is
saying a lot
Reid managed to pick up « big 26
points which rated him as top man for

thc 'Bird ball men this year, starting on May 1 and ending on May

Main worry of coach Anderson
is the problem of pitchers. With
such a heavy, quick schedule and
every meet a double-header, Thunderbirds are liable to run out of
pitchers before the second game
Is over.
Other worry of the coach is that
most UE'C students leave town as
soon as exams are over at the end

town until May 13 to be able to
play the full schedule.
But early practice presents no
