 LIVINGSTONE CHOSEN.AS NEW AMS HEAD
Students Decide Issue
Tfofflu**?
VOL. XXIX
VANCOUVER, B.C., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1947.
No. 44
Legion Asks
Repeal Of
Concert Ban
Legion officials of Branch 72 have
written letters to Dean Cecil Swan-
son, President of the Vancouver
Ministerial Association, and to Reverend W. N. Byers, Secretary of the
Lords Day Act Alliance, asking them
to consider the entire matter of the
University Concert Series with a view
to reaching some basis for proceeding
with the concerts, it was learned today,
Presentation of the concert series
conflicts with the Sunday evening
church services, Legion members
said, and has thus caused the present dispute.
The letter requested urgent replies
in order to contact Albert Steinberg
before Thursday night so he can proceed with rehearsals with his twenty-
piece orchestra.
Unofficial evidence that Vancouver
clergy are not so uniformly opposed
to the holding of a Sunday evening
concert series in the university auditorium as was first indicated, has
led to hope that at least part of the
original plan may be salvaged.
It is believed that only a few local
churchmen are prepared to actively
oppose the presentation of Sunday
concert music.
Albert Steinberg, conductor of the
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, who
was to have conducted a 20-plece
string ensemble Sunday evening,
March 2, has been contacted by the
Legion Concert Committee and requested to suspend cancellation of
arrangements pending further developments.
McRae Favors
Tickets Revision
Financial Report of Alma Mater
Society Treasurer Don McRae to the
Student Council recently included
several recommendations concerning
campus ticket sales.
McRae suggested that all ticket
sales be put under the supervision
of the AMS, to enable the operation
of a more efficient sales system.
Tickets could then be numbered by
the AMS office staff, he stated.
Under this proposal, the .ticket sellers would be responsible to the AMS
for the list of complimentary ticket
holders, gross receipts, and unsold
tickets.
McRae's report also included a recommendation that the Book Exchange be placed in a more central
location. It had been in the Men's
Club Room of the Brock Hall.
He further recommended that the
Book Exchange, which this year
transacted $860 worth of business,
be opened earlier in the term, preferably a few days before school
opening.
Although the Exchange is a nonprofit venture, managers are allowed
a ten per cent honorarium for their
services.
Heiwze Here Tomorrow
Conductor Here Tomorrow,
Says Music Mostly Work
By BILL IDSAROI
"A musician is made up of 99 per cent perspiration and one
percent inspiration," declared Dr. Bernard Heinze, head of the
chair of music at Melbourne University Conservatorium, music
advisor to the Australian Broadcasting Commission and internationally renowned symphony conductor.

Forum Discusses
Asiatic Influx
Immigration of Asiatic peoples for
settlement in British Columbia will
be discussed at the Parliamentary
Forum meeting today in Arts 100 at
noon.
Charles Young will act as prime
minister and Jack Brown as leader
of th« opposition.
On Thursday afternoon two Forum
debators will leave for Seattle where
en Friday they meet speakers from
the University of Washington in a
panel discussion. The topic in the
American city is "United Nations and
national disarmament". Jack Gilmoro
and Jack Graham represent UBC in
the talks.
Another in the series of non-decision debates being held under the
sponsorship of the Forf^* is the contest scheduled for MondaJL February
17. At that time a team froS'the University of California at Berkely will
meet UBC debaters, Grant Livingstone and Cliff Greer in Vancouver.
They will discuss the feasibility of
turning control of Japan over to the
Security Council of UNO.
The Berkely team will take the
negative in what promises to be an
outstanding debate according to Ian
Cowan of the Forum executive.
Dr. Mackenzie
Receives Posting
Appointment of Dr. N. A. M.
McKenzie to the position of Honorary President of the National
Federation of Canadian University
Students was announced yesterday
by the presidents' office.
The main purpose of this organization is to help solve the problems common to university students across Canada.
Heinze will conduct the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in the
UBC Armory tomorrow at 11:30 a.m.
Bernard Heinze is a truly great
conductor. In Finland they praised
his Sibelius! It has been said of him,
"nothing so glowing, so pulsating with
life, have we listened to for a long
time. . . To Heinze an orchestra is
not a real one until it resounds at
every moment with a full, intense
glow and fire,"
TOLERANT
He is tolerant of so-called "popular"
music but dislikes the use of the
term, implying that music of the great
masters is not popular. "If you can
show me a piece of 'popular' music
that is still listened to after 90 or a
hundred years, I will be glad to accept it as a classic," he said.
Serious work should not be confused with music which is intended to
suit lighter moods.
Professor Heinze believes that university students do not show a burning interest in, or appreciation of,
music, but he has found they will
make a point of listening to good
music. . . "providing the effort required to attend is not too great."
SCHOLARSHIPS
Bom in Victoria (Australia), Dr.
Heinze was a boy-wonder violinist.
His first appearance was with a symphony orchestra in Melbourne Town
Hall. He was nine years old. A
scholarship took him to London in his
early teens. Successive scholarships
carried him through years of study
in Paris and Berlin, and a series of
engagements as a conductor in London Paris, Helsingfors, Budapest, Zurich and Berlin,
As a conductor, Heinze has had
considerable success abroad as well as
in his native Australia. He was invited to assume the conductorship of
the Dresden symphony orchetsra.
While in Helsinki conducting an all-
Finnish program, the great Finninsh
composer, Sibelius, marvelled at the
Australian's superb interpretation of
his Second Symphony.
Bureau Job Lists
Opens Tomorrow
Registration for summer employment is slated to start tomorrow, according to information received from
Major J. F. McLean yesterday.
By arrangements with the executive and professional section of the
National Employment Service,, the
University Employment Bureau now
receives regular information concerning suitable employment for university students, said Major McLean
of the bureau Wednesday.
The jobs offered concern both va-
Major McLean said this promises to
be useful for summer employment
this year.
The National Employment Service
has taken over work done by the
Bureau of Technical Personnel and
has already contacted firms all over
Canada who might have openings
for students. Results are now coming
in to the Employment Bureau.
"We have nearly a hundred jobs
from the service now," said McLean,
"and seven to ten jobs are coming
in every day."
The Engineers Undergraduate Society Is handling registration for the
engineers.
By Casting Record Vote
Grant Livingstone topped the presidential polls yesterday
at the close of balloting to become president of the Alma Mater
Society for 1947-48.
His running mate, Bob Harwood, became treasurer by
acclamation at the end of the nomination period last week.
Livingstone  polled  a  total  ef  22GG*'
votes, placing him 897 votes ahead of |
Canadian Campus On Drama
Dramatics ... as academic
courses and as extracurricular
activities; whether making an annual appearance on the campus or
as a regular feature of university
activity . . . must be recognized
today as the one interest, with
the excoption of sports, which
stands unanimously high on the
list of student efforts at our universities.
Yet with its popularity equallins
or far surpassing, that of past
years, one aspect of college dramatics becomes increasingly apparent. The interest is there; but
the facilities fur accomodating dramatic production, the outcome o!'
that   interest,   are   not.
In much loo loud a voice a query
on the status of dramatics at different universities was answered
with a chorus of "poor facilities"
"space available too small" . . ,
"production facilities tattered."
Although plays are being presented   everywhere,   at   the   majority
of universities the lack of adequate
equipment to work with is felt.
Of talent there Is plenty . . .
enthusiasm is high" . . . and
plays are being produced. But
those who stage them are constantly battling the obstacles of
obsolete equipment, lack of seating space,  and poor lighting.
EXCEPTIONS TO PROVE
Exceptions to the generally poor
quality of available facilities are
those in use at the University of
British Columbia and Acadia University. At both, those places facilities are described as "excellent,"
with the UBC auditorium, which
has a seating cap.icity of 1 (100
people, ranking as "the best
C(inipped  in the province."
At Carleton Collegv, in Ottawa,
dramatics, while still in on organizational stage, promise to become increasingly active aided by
the presence of good production
facilities. And at McGill, dramatics
sponsored   by   the   English   De
partment may use the production
facilities of Moyse Hall, the only
available stage and auditorium al
the University.
ACADEMIC RECOGNITION
An increasing tendency, apparent at many universities, to include dramatics as an academic
subject shows a move from the
classification of "drama" as a
cultural interest, completely extra
curricular, to its acceptance as a
serious field for study and experiment. Such an attitude on the part
of university authorities will not
only form a firm basis for the expansion of dramatic interests in
Canada but will steadily Increase
the calibre of Canadian talent by
allowing academic credit for those
who want to put time and effort,
in*o  such   work.
(University Dramatics, Part II
.. . . will take up the topics of
"Drama Festivals"; "University
Production Year 1946-47"; and
"Outstanding Drama Schools.")
Camps Ask USC
Representation
Representatives of Acadia Camp
and Fort Camp will meet tonight
with the members of the Undergraduate Societies Committee to discuss
the question of representation for
these two bodies on USC. The USC
is at present considering the report
of the constitution revision committee which contains recommendations concerning the composition
of next year's committee.
Bob Currie will speak for Acadia,
while Ron Dewar will be Fort Camp's
representative.
The proposed representation of the
cemps on USC was a prominent
plank in the platform of Bob Harwood who was elected by acclamation
to the position of Treasurer of tha
Alma Mater Society for '47-'48.
Iron Ring Circus
Engineers' Theme
"Iron Ring Circus," winning name
in a contest to label this year's annual Science Ball, will provide the
theme for the dance at the Commodore Thursday, February 20, at
9 p.m.
Each year one club in the Engineer's Undergraduate Society will be
responsible for the decoration of
one table. Judges, Dean J. N. Fin-
layson and other faculty members,
will award prizes for the best table.
A science ball pep meet with the
"Iron Ring" theme will be presented
in the auditorium Tuesday, February
18. Bert Shore is in charge of arrangements.
EUS executive announced that they
will gadly refund the $2.50 to all
those students who have obtained
tickets and find they are unable to
attend the "Iron Ring Circus."
Council Approves
Board Conversion
Conversion of the War Memorial
fund board in the Quad to a notice
board for student activities has been
approved by Student Council. If this
measure is seconded by Mr. J. D,
Lee, building superintendent, the
Mamooks will assume the task, of
conversion.
Major changes in the board's appearance, ' a protecting roof and a
new coat of base paint, are considered
necessary by the council if it, is to
bo utilized as a  notice board.
Four lines at the top of the board
will be reserved for announcement of
student activities. The rest of the
space ia to be left open for the display of posters.

Ting Discusses
Land Problem
The basic problem in China is
the problem of the land, according to
Rev. K. M. Ting in his address on
"China's Struggle for Democracy" at
a meeting of the Student Christian
Movement  on  Tuesday.
He stated that a Chinese peasant
must give anywhere from fifty to
seventy-five per cent of his produce
to the landlord as rent. "Farmers produce rice but cannot afford to eat it,
instead they eat grass, bark or a type
of clay known as "Clay from the
Goddess of Mercy."
The old fatalism of the Chinese
peasants was uprooted to a great extent during the recent war because
they were deserted by many of the
great warlords in the face of the
Japanese  invading  forces.
The movement of the Universities
during the migrations from the coast*
a) areas also forced the intelligentsia
to face the facts of poverty and
misery, he said. "The war has driven
them out of their ivory Pagodas into
realty."
Ninety-nine per cent of the eight
million Chinese soldiers who died in
the war were from the villages, and
Rev. Ting stressed that the will of
the people will be the ultimate factor
in deciding which way China wants
to go.
"Canada's contributions to the 'Aid
To China Fund' per capita is several
times larger than even that of the
United States of America" went on
Rev. Ting "And for that we are very
grateful."

teceived a total vote of 1369. Bill
McKay polled 378 votes.

Livingstone started his university
career at UBC in the year 1940. During
that term he took an active interest
in the Parliamentary Forum. He enlisted and was sent overseas as a
reinforcement officer with the Canadian Scots. Returning to Canada in
1944, he served as a weapon-training
instructor until hia discharge in 1945,
Returning to UBC, he continued his
interest in Parliamentary Forum debates, and was prime minister in the
1945 Mock Parliament. Elected second
vice-president of the Canadian Le-
Igion's campus branch in the fall of
that year, and subsequently elected
president in March 1946, he led the
UBC delegation to the Legion's Dominion Convention and presented
briefs to the Parliamentary Committee
on Veterans' Affairs at Ottawa.
At Christmas 1946, he represented
UBC at the National Federation of
Canadian University students.

DON'T/STOP NOW
The smoke and fumes of the presidential
elections now having been carried away, it
is no time to relax and forget the other Student Council positions that must be filled.
After all, the character of the Council next
year will be determined more by its over-all
makeup than by any one executive, thus
making it advisable for the Alma Mater Society
to give as much attention to the election of
suitable people to the other nine positions as
to the choosing of a president and treasurer.
In the past, especially when presidential
campaigns have been as heated as the one this
year, the members of the AMS have tended
to relax and not worry very much about the
remaining elections. Although there doesn't
seem to be much chance of that happening
in some cases this spring, there are one or two
Council positions in which very few people
have yet shown any great interest.
The junior council positions, such as the
sophomore member, and the junior member,
are one that may easily be filled by people with
no previous Council experience. Those positions
are designed in part to be a training ground
for future senior executives.
It should be the pleasant duty of campus
clubs or faculty associations of all kinds to
urge any unusually efficient member of their
executive to consider his candidacy for higher
office. By having its members elected from a
good supply of minor executives, Student
Council stands a better chance of becoming
a more meaningful group to the average
student.
It is always undesirable for some student
to gain a Council post just because everyone
else was too apathetic to nominate anyone
else. In practically every case, even the person
who becomes a member of Council in that
way would much rather have had a run for
his title.
The Wassail Bowl
By NORM KLENMAN
At the presidential candidates' question
period in the Auditorium Tuesday noon, one
of the candidates labelled the political charges
and countercharges, diatribes and defences,
which characterized the campaign, as "regrettable, childish, and disgracefull." The whole
display shows the urgent need for a huge black
line to be drawn between personal political
ideology and student government offices on
this campus.
The three presidential candidates professed—
and there is no reason to doubt their sincerity—
that they did not wish political considerations
to enter the campaign. Yet the opposition to
one of these candidates was based almost
wholly on an opposition to his previous political affiliations. A presidential campaign should
not be fought on this issue. Political ideology
has no connection whatsoever with the duties
of president. If the candidates affirm their
intention to be non-partisan in carrying out
their duties, that is sufficient reason to banish
a discussion of ideology from the campaign.
COUNCIL NO POLITICAL FORUM
Positions on council have almost always been
filled by people desiring to serve, in some way,
the students' requirements for athletic, cultural,
and social activity. Fitness for such offices must
be judged on the ability of the candidate to
fulfill such duties, not on basis of his political
party or opinions. Student officials must be
faithful representatives of the students, not
faithful political representatives.
The desire of some students to organize
branches of political parties as clubs under
the Alma Mater Society was debated last year.
A plebiscite, held at the time of student elections, showed two-thirds of those voting did
not favour having such organizations. That
should have shown that the majority of the
students did not feel national politics would do
student government any good.
DUTIES AND OPINIONS
It is conceivable that some officials, who are
more interested in their ideologies than in their
duties, may be elected from time to time. But
it is inconceivable that they would be of more
value, as such, to campus life than non-partisan
officials. All students, not merely those of a
specific group, must be considered in the action
of student officials.
It should be reaffirmed that this campus is
big enough to embrace all political ideologies.
Every speaker who wishes to address a student
audience should be permitted to do so. Political
discussion should be free to all who wish to
enter it. But politics, political parties, and
political activity should be kept entirely separate from the student government.
GUARD NON-PARTISANSHIP
This column takes no stand on national or
provincial politics, nor political ideologies. Our
whole desire is to keep the election of student
officials one of ability and merit. But previous
political affiliations became a serious consideration in the presidential campaign, and may
yet arise in succeeding campaigns.
The only effect on student government can
be a degrading one. Efficiency of student
government will be impaired by useless wrangling between sectional blocs.
The tendency this year has been toward
increasing emphasis on political ideology of
the candidates. It is a "regrettable, childish,
and disgraceful" tendency and efforts should
be made immediately to assure non-partisanship in student government.
Forum 'Witness' Decision
Highlights Basic Problem
By G. ROSS TURNER
The adoption, in a recent Parliamentary Forum meeting, of a resolution expressing disapproval of Premier
Duplessis' handling cf Jehovah's Witnesses ill his province serves to highlight a basic contemporary problem.
Baldly stated, it is this. How far shall
democracy extend the rights and privileges it professes to uphold to groups
whose success in the attainment of
their objectives would destroy it?
ORGANIZED STATE
The framework that supports our
liberties and (this is Important) is in
turn supported by our proper performance of our duties as citizens, is
tho present organized state we call
Canada.
This framework may require support in two ways: Against external, or
equally important, against internal aggression, During the 1939-1945 period,
when the aggression was external, the
"Witnesses", with their "conscientious
objection" to share tins duty of sup
port, were a small minority. If they
had, for the sake of the argument,
numbered 49rK still a minority of our
population, would we be in a position to meet and pass resolutions
today?
NO PROBLEM?
Of course, if they had numbered well
over 50r!, there probably would have
been no war for Canada, and our
problems woud have all been solved
before this, though scarcely to our
satisfaction. Tho fact of their present
small number does not affect the principle at issue, nor the logic of the situation. To the extent that such
bodies flourish unrestrained, our national structure is threatened, and
with it, the very rights which they
now invoke in their own behalf, but
refuse to share in the earning.
Is it treasonable to suggest that n
democracy is under no obligation to
protect groups whose success would
destroy it, whether that destruction
is deliberately sought, or is merely
a corollary to the full achievement of
the group's aims?

■   Women     have,
SUPERIOR      from time immem-
EQUALS orial> been scream_
ing for social
equality with men. They claim mental equality and, from the standpoint
of the male, they most certainly
have structural superiority.
Mental equality of men and women
is something relatively new to our
civilization. Women, tired of doing
nothing but pursue the "social amenities," decided to bring about a
change, They started a fight, which
needed only recognition of a basic
truth to bo won, and they fought a
good fight. They won. Males now
admit,  reluctantly perhaps,  that wo-
*
Man, domineering
MANNER OF  man,    has    always
THINGS cringed   from   his
avowed purpose at
the smile of a woman, A sultry glance
escapes a woman's eye; another male-
motivated action is thwarted at birth
or a new one is conceived. A frown
and one man's spirit is broken and
another's is bouyed.
That is the way things always were;
it is, perhaps, the way things should
be. But women, being women, have
spoiled it all.
Excess of anything is bad and women have taken their gods-given
privilege to an extreme where
men are sick and tired of bowing to
their whims. Typically, men sit
complacently in the streetcar while
standing women, (Jemandlng social

their seats, that they doff their hats
to them, that they speak a different
men are their mental equals.
Structural superiority to the male
i.s so obvious that it demands only a
cursory glance: beauty contests, the
crowning of queens at every conceivable opportunity, leg-art and the
pinups—all these show men's acceptance of the fundamental biological
concept.
Social equality is the latest demand
of women. It is a ridiculous demand
They arc not now, nor will they ever
be, socially the equals of their mah
partners.
Women's social powers arc superior to men's.-
They have  been;  they always will
be.
i    *
language   when   women   are  present.
It is not only an unfair situation,
but also an illogical one,
Women, whose special powers arc
superior and who are considered by
men to be socially their lessers, might
first abolish all thoughts that chivalry was a good thing. They might
cease thinking of men as potential
husbands. They might do In public
which many now do in private; that
which Harry Percy asked of his wife:
Swear me, Kate, like a lady as
thou art,
A  good   mouth-filling oath;  and
leave 'in sooth'
And such protest of pepper gingerbread
To   velvet   guards   and   Sunday
citizens.
The only difficulty is that while
the women themselves might be able
to undergo the change, it is doubtful
indeed if any man could do so without blushing.
Lesion Letter
From HAL LINDSAY
"BE IT EVER SO HUMBLE ..."
When my wife and I first came here
from Saskatchewan—I to attend University, and she to get a job—we
decided that the first thing we must
do was to find a place in which to
live. Now we had heard about the
housing shortage, but we thought that,
as we had abandoned our two children
somewhere along the Big iBend Highway, we wouldn't have too much
trouble.
And, at the beginning, we didn't.
The first advertisement we answered
had mentioned 'outdoor plumbing",
but, being from Saskatchewan,' we
were used to that. We had moved into
the place before we found out what
was meant by 'outdoor'—it was on
Hastings and Main Street, in front of
the Public Library, and below sidewalk level. Even then we didn't mind
too much—after all, it was a place to
live. But when we'd been there a
month, and I found out that my
entire allowance was being used up
in nickels, we decided it was time to
move.
In my search for new quarters, I
came across one woman who said she
would rent us her attic for only $95
a month if we paid off her mortgage
and re-decorated her house. I was just
counting out money enough for six
months rent In advance when she suggested that we might also pay her
son's way through college. That did
it—I turned and fled. The next woman
I visited said she had a lovely room
in the basement—small, but warm and
cheap. I didn't find out until It was
almost too late that she'd re-decorated
the inside of her furnace. I told her
I'd call back, but I never did. Instead,
my wife and I moved into a 'room
with bath'. Out the bath had had
more room than we did. When we
were both home at the same time, I
sat on the floor, and my wife sat in
the bath-tub. There was only one
difficulty. My wife was quite thin,
and the bath-tub drain was quite wide,
She got sick and tired of walking
back from Kitsllano Beach every day.
So once again we decided to move.
Our next place wasn't too bad. This
was a room with hot and cold running
water. The water ran through the
ceiling, and was hot when the sun was
shining, and cold when it wasn't.
One day the landlady had the roof
repaired, and cut our water off, so we
decided it was once again time to be
on our way.
In desperation we applied to the
Legion Housing Committee, expecting
top   priority.   Then   we  were  shown
some of the applications Living
ir. summer cottage, water from well,
no Indoor plumbing. . . . One room
for myself, my wife and two children
. . . presence of two TB cases in
house . . . wife, myself and two children living in one room, no sink, no
cooking facilities, must eat in restaurant . . , living in a converted garage,
no water or plumbing facilities . . .
wife and one child share bathroom and
kitchen facilities with eleven adults.
. . . Myself, wife and child occupy one
large room, rent $52 month . . . live
with my parents in four-room cottage,
no bathroom, lavatory outside, commuting distance fifteen miles . . . wife
and three children living in a trailer.
Deciding we weren't too badly off
after all, we searched around on our
own. It took a long time, but we finally found exactly what we were looking
for—a nice, quiet room with a view.
The only complaint I have to make is
that it's darned difficult trying to do
my homework with a straight-jacket
on.
Note: The above statements are
actual extracts from applications
made to the Legion Housing
Committee.

Letters To The Editor
WHO'S WHO?
Dear Sir:
Many students have asked, "Who
is Father Chaloner?" "Why does he
criticize us every year?"
Monsignor Chaloner is listed in
'Who's Who of British Columbia,
1946.' Among other things it mentions his education at Ushaw College
Durham, Oldhall College Wave, also
Colleges in Paris and Rome where he
received his J. F. C. (Licentiate of
Canon Law) Head Rector at Ladner
Seminary 1931. Chaplain at St. Paul's
Hospital from 1939 to 1947. So his
education is quite extensive,
As chaplain, he is in contact with
thousands of people who respect and
support his judgment. This does not
only include the 100,000 Catholics in
British Columbia but people of all
religions and creeds.
A Chaplain's work is social rehab-
iliation both moral and physical, and
Father Chaloner has devoted himself
to this work. Because of this, he is
looked upon as an authority upon
what will help or harm public morals,
All the University students know
that the Mardi Gras Chorus was not
indecent, but the Publicity Campaign
certainly was misleading as far as
the General Public could judge. A
Censorship Committee appointed by
the University would avoid any future upleasant publicity.
THE   NEWMAN   CLUB
MY, MY
Dear Sir:
In Bill McKay's letter which you
recently published, he states that The
Ubyssey is produced by funds supplied by the students themselves.
This is a disturbing thought.
Might I suggest that if any substantial amount of student's money
is involved, it would be an excellent
idea to suspend publication immediately, and apply the money to
some useful or entertaining purpose.

JEWELLERS-VANCOUVER Players' Club
Alum In Movies
By CAROL DENT
It's back to Hollywood this month
for Mary McLeod ex-member of
UBC's Players Clue Mary is a veteran in the movie game although she
only began her movie career in 1942.
Before that she played leading roles
in three of the annual productions of
the Players Club, including "Pride
and Prejudice."
Her first part in the movies was a
featured role in ''Keeper of the
Flame" which starred Katherinc
Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. Mary
generally plays what she termed as
'character ingenue parts', for example
in her latest picture "GI War Brides"
she played the part of a young English war bride.
Doris Lloyd, who is now playing
downtown in "Hamlet" played a
leading role in "GI War Brides," and
Mary, who saw Hamlet last night said
she enjoyed it very much.
Mary, who is hoping to get out to.
UBC for a look around before She
leaves for Hollywood, is very interested in the affairs of the University.
She was anxious to know if there is
still a feud between the Musical Society and the Dramatic Club.

Two English Beauties Featured
At Junior-Senior Pepmeet
By CHARLES MARSHALL
Good, neighbour policy was extended to students of UBC last
Tuesday when two beautiful ambassadors from England attended
tho Junior-Senior  Prom Pepmeet.
Tho pepmeet ,held in preparall n
for the Junior - Senior Prom next
Monday at the Commodore Cabaret
ivas conducted by Jack Emerson,
who introduced a galax of talented
performers.
Opening the show was "Flame"
Marlowe, local tap dancer, who
was followed by magician Roy
Wheeler.
CLIMACTIC
The climax of the performance
came   when   two   lovely   British
models, Georgie Clifford and Valerie Cox, were introduced to the
audience by Herb Capozzi.
The models, members of the
group touring Canada, came to the
pepmeet on the condition that
they would not have to make any
speeches. They did, however,
agree to kiss a male of their
choosing from  the  audience.
Their victim was Bob Esty,
chosen, Miss Cox said, "because
he was the typical English type."
Rather embarrassed, but willing,
Esty climbed onto the stage and
was kissed by each of the young
ladies.
EVILS OF DRINK
Continuing  the   show,   Lorraine
McAllister, formerly vocalist with
Art Hallman's band, sang several
numbers. She was followed by
Barnie Potts, local band leader
nnd comedian, who did two successful skits on "The Evils of
Drink."
Ed McCurdy, well known radio
singer, wound up the meet by
singing several songs.
Throughout the performance
music was provided by Emerson
who brought with him his own
grand piano.
The meet was arranged by Ralph
Hueney and Herb Capozzi. Tickets for the dance are now on sale
in the AMS office or the Caf at
S2 for Juniors and Seniors and $3
for others.

will be discussed by four students,
Loi-raino Parton, Barbara Geoffrey,
Ted McRae and Ian Anderson.
Dr. W. G. Black of the Psychology
Department will act as moderator at
the round table.
FACULTY CLAIM
FORUM REMISS
Commenting on a charge from the
Faculty Committee on Student's Affairs that the Committee had not given information on a recent trip by a
university team, Don McRae said,
'We have been remiss.'
Charges arise out of failure of the
Parliamntary Forum to give information to the Commlttee on the recent trip made by a team of debaters
to California.
KINGSTON-(CUP) - Veterans at
Queen's University have been granted
permission to wear uniforms at formal
dances < n the campus.
The first of eleven of his countrymen to come from India to UBC,
Chowdhury said "The weather is too
cold here for a Bengalian, but I like
Vancouver very muich. The people
here are very generous and sympathetic to foreigners."
DACCAR GRADUATE
The 27 year-old Bengalian is a
graduate of Daccar University in Calcutta. He is here under government
scholarship to study for his Master
of Arts and Doctorate in Fisheries
Technology.
Chowdhury thinks that Canadian
students should rebel against the
small scholarships granted them
"Scholarships should be for more than
$100 a month for students who will be
trained in other countries," he stated.
Comparing his own government with
ours, Chowdhury reported, "The government is sending students out of
the country for up to five years, to
help with the industrialization of India.
Every year they send several scholars
to the United Kingdom, America and
to Canada. Most students are sent to
gain their Master's degree. Both boys
and girls are being sponsored."
To prove his point Chowdhury explained his scholarship. Maintenance
allowance for the student from India
is $160 a month with tuition and incidentals paid. $250 a year is allowed
for approved study tours and $60 a
year for medical attention.
The Provisional Government of
India will keep Chowdhury studying
outside the country for longer than
his scholarship—on recommendation
of university professors. His present
scholarship is for two years.
RELATIONS INTERESTED
Chowdhury was especially interested
in the International Relations Club.
The name appealed to him, although
he would like to find out more about
other campus clubs. "In India," he said,
"when a student is accepted at a university he automatically becomes a
member of every club on the campus."
Billeted at Fort Camp, the Bengalian
enjoys his associations with the residents, most of whom are veterans. He
te used to Canadian food now, but
finds that it is cooked differently than
in India.

IN Canadian College Sports
By NORMAN HILLIER
SPORTS EDITOR, THE ARGOSY WEEKLY
In the 1946 football season in the Maritimes, the game
underwent a radical change. For the first time, Rugby League
rules were introduced which limited each team to 13 players
allowing six in the scrurn, and one picking quarter.
These changes had little effect on the game itself and in a
series of home and home fixtures with both University of New
Brunswick and Saint Dunstan's, Mount Allison was crowned
N.B. - P.E.I. English Rugby champions. Meanwhile, in Nova
Scotia Saint Francis Xavier won out after first defeating Dal-
housie and then soundly trouncing N.S. Technical College, last
year's title holders.
The first meeting of the two teams for the Maritime Championship resulted in a 3-3 tie. The second, played on Studley field
in Halifax, ended in a 4-3 win for Mount Allison.
In a vain attempt to lift the McCurdy Cup from the powerful Caledonian squad of Glace Bay, the Garnet and Gold
ruggers were finally out pointed 11-3 in overtime play.
Hockey and basketball are yet in the initial stages for this
season. Hockey predictions favour St. F. X. whose experience
and power give a decided advantage although U.N.B. merits
watching in the New Brunswick play-offs.
U.N.B., with a six-game basketball tour of Maine, should
offer a stiff challenge even though they have lost many of last
year's players who gave such stellar performances.
Mount A. in exhibition matches dropped one game to a
powerful Moncton team but came back to defeat St. John
Seniors 75-45 last week. Dalhousie suffered severely to both
Mount A. and St. F. X. in perliminary games.
Dalhousie walked off with the Maritime Tennis championship at a tournament last October. At the same time U.N.B.
took top honours in an invitation track meet held in Halifax at
which time Mount A.'s Dick Harris unofficially broke the Canadian Collegiate discus record.
All sport schedules are drawn up by the executive of the
Maritime Intercollegiate Athletic Union which includes representatives from the various member colleges. A full schedule of
boxing, swimming, badminton and track tournaments is being
arranged although interest at the present time is centered on
the basketball and hockey play-offs.
IN ACTION AGAIN—This Saturday will see the opening of another of the traditional
McKechnie Cup series that Varsity rugger players have come to look forward to year after
year. They have also made a fairly regular habit of winning the cherished silverware. The
above shot was taken from a McKechnie Cup battle of the past, but plenty of the same brand
of good rugger is in store for all at the Stadium Saturday afternoon.

Thunderbirds Battle Vancouver Lions
In5 McKechnie Cup Opener Saturday
Varsity Stadium will echo Saturday to the combined cheers of Vancouver Lion supporters
and the Blue and Godl cheer section under the direction of the white sweatered Mamooks. The
opening game of the famous McKechnie Cup battles will get under way on the local turf, when
Thunderbirds meet the Green and Gold of this year's crop of Vancouver Lions. Added attractions will include the Majorettes and the campus band which are calculated to distract the
opposing players considerably.
The biggest games in the hitsory of the annual McKechnie Cup tilts are expected as the
big three of western rugby play off for the silverware symbolic of B. C. rugby champions.
The opening game with Vancouver^-
The annual Dam Downhill, spon
sored by the Varsity Outdoor Club,
will get under way on Grouse Mountain on February 16 at 11 a.m., and in
conjunction with this event will be a
Slalom race on the Big Hill.
It is to be noted that this race is
open to any skier on the campus. The
more entries, the merrier, figures Harry
Smith, club secretary.
This year there will be three classes
for boys and girls—A, B and C—"A
for awful good, B for below A, and
C for 'cause we told you you could
do it." There will be prizes fo rail
three classes and consolation prizes
for the rear enders.
Last year's cup winner, Jaick Skinner, has signified his intentions of defending his cup, but whether he will
be travelling with the ski team when
they journey to Martin Pass for the
Pacific Northwest Inter-collegiate
championships the same weekend or
not is a question up to the coach,
Peter Vajda, to decide.
LISTS IN QUAD
Entries may be made by handing in
your name to any of the executive,
or by signing your name on the lists
in the quad or at the club cabin on
Grouse. Post entries will be accepted
after the draw being held at 10 p.m.
Saturday night, February 15.
If you want to enter the events, but
don't have any aacommodation, don't
worry. Sufficient space will be found
to house the contestants—providing of
course that several hundred entries
don't arrive at the last moment.
And remember, you don't have to
be good or even fair on skis to enter
this mammoth event. It goes without
saying that if Arnie Ede can enter
the race having been on skis only
three times, you. can do it easily. Of
course, he didn't win but he had a
grand time—ho says.
ELEVEN  TRAVEL
At Revelstoke today racing in the
Cross-country event of tho Western
Canadian Championships are 11 members of the UBC ski team. Under the
leadership of Coach Peter Vajda, these
stalwarts of the campus skiing world

Sailor Hoopmen
Play Here Monday
A quintet of hoopmen from HMCS
Warrior will visit the Varsity gym on
Monday noon for an exhibition
match against UBC's potent Intermediate A Basketball squad, according to an announcement by the UBC
athletic  department yestroday.
The contest will be an opportunity
for all hoop fans to see the sailors
in action, as well as serving as a
further workout for the 'medc melon"
men, who are climbing the ladder of
the local loop with but four games
between them and the finals,
Tho Varsity soccer team will also
meet the Sailor athletes. Game time is
scheduled for 12:30 pjn. next Tuesday.
will be followed in successive weeks
by battles at Brockton Oval, Victoria,
and finally by a trip to Victoria for
the final fray.    •
The weekend attraction, which
with the permission of the weatherman is expected to attract the largest
turnout of fans this season, will see
this year's crop of Thunderbirds
sporting many familiar feathers in
the form of star players.
Such well known leather pushers
as Russ Latham, Gordle McKee, Doug
Reid, Don Neibitt, and Bud Sprers,
are just a sample of the backfield
talent which Will be on deck for the
initial fray. Other backfield stars
v/ill include George Biddle as five-
eighths, Johnny Wheeler as scrum
half, and Hilary Wotherspoon in the
full back slot.
CUP SHOULD STAY """
The McKechnie silverware which
is at present residing on the campus,
has, according to Chief Coach Roy
Haines, a very good chance of staying
In the local collection.
"We should win tihe first game by
ten points" declared Mui»ger Maury
Physic in a last minute interview.
The two campus rugby teams which
together make up the Thunderbird
squad, have paced the local Vancouver league, and the leading Varsity fifteen managed to cop both the
Miller and Tisdall Cups. The combination of both groups should be able
to tackle any conglomeration of Vancouver teams that the Lions can produce.
VICTORIA UNKNOWN
Victoria is an unknown quantity as
»
yet, but it is known to nave a heavy
team.  Local  team  mentors  will  bo
able to get ia preview of the Island
power   when   the   Victoria   Crimson
Tide meets Vancouver at Stanley Park
next week.
Inter-city rivalry is usually strc
that spotters from the Victoria club
are expected to fly over for this
week's game, and thus be prepared
for whatever the opposition is building their hopes on.
PROBABLE STARTERS
The forwards for the game will be
chosen from the following list of
probable starters. Captain Barry
Morris, Scott Kerr, Al Carlyle, Harvey Allen, Marshall Smdth, Gerard
Kirby, Geoff Corry, Barney Curby
and   Hartt   Crosby.
Most significant is the inclusion of
the two well known grid stars of the
fall season, Reid and Nesbitt. Well
known for their past performances on
the rugby field, the two speedsters
hope to bo playing on a winning team
again for a change and fans are expecting to witness some really fast
action in the next few weeks.
Preliminaries will get under way
around 2:15 Saturday, and game
time will  be  2:30 sharp.

Bell Rings Bell
In Inter A Tilt
Bill Bell, with valuable help from
the rest of the Varsity Inter A hoop
quintet, layed low Club Qu'Appelle,
40-20, in a minor league fracas at
King Edward Gym, on Tuesday night.
Bill practically won the game
single handed for the students. In
the first quarter, when the score
stood at 11-7 for Varsity, it might
well be said that the score was 11-7,
for Bell. Bill ended his nights chores
by racking up 26 points, and setting
n new record for the season.
The other four members of the
team, although not scoring excessively, helped to carry their load of
the game, and provided Bell with
most of his scoring opportunities.
Dave Hinds and Don Swenson also
broke into the scoring column, by
parting the net for 6 points each.
The Verity defence was functioning well, as is indicated by the fact
that Qu'Apr.elle scored only 20 points'
The majority of these points were
scored from outside the key area,
Sonny Bosquet chalking up 10 for
the losers.
This win puts the Meralomas in undisputed top position, a place that
they are well accustomed to, having
led the league for the whole season.
Second in line are Tooks, and trailing theme in-third and fourth position
are Arrows and Vanity.
With two more games to play In
the next week, Varsity will have to
be in top form if they hope to cop
a berth in the playoffs.

will be composed of the former Golden Glove boys with a strong
supporting string of top flight fighters turned out by coach
Jim Gove. ^
Art Beaumont will be back in better
first of the conference season in which
the 'Birds have come out only second
best. The Coyote win puts the spud-
men on top of the PNW loop, with six
wins to their credit and nary a loss in
their books.
Close calling of fouls was the bane
of the Thunderbird effort, with Kermode, McGeer and Munro all doing
time on the bad bench in the first
period.
The referee also used up most of
the fingers of his right hand keeping
track of the personals recorded by
Ron Weber. But it wasn't that the
Blue and Gold cagers were rougher
than usual—the ref was just calling
'em close.
HOPES FADE
Hopes of a rally in the last five
minutes faded when four other 'Bird-
men recorded personal fouls and came
dangerously close to being ejected
from the fray.
Thus, although the visitors were
trailing by only seven points, they
were unable to span the gap without
endangering the foul record of their
four teammates.
Ron Weber again showed the way
in the individual scoring managing an
11-point total for his evening's chores.
Bob Haas was right behind with ten,
a chalkup equal to Coyote top man
Faylor.
Just how significant their Tuesday
loss will be in the 'Birdmen's final
standings will be better determined
upon the reception of last night's results, A day and a half of train travel
did the UBC boys no good, but tivir
fans have been hoping that the second
contest would be played under has
fatiguing conditions than those the
travellers had to contend with the
first night.

to the welter division for a crack at
the crown.
Southpaw Wally Gray will make
another bid for the light-weight
crown with a host of other campus
boys intent on making sure it comes
to their Alma Mater.
One of the Gove proteges who is
entering is Jim Casey, a fast lightweight who bids well to slip his way
into an opening for the title. Two
other lightweights Who will take to
the ring are Terry Field, a heavy
hitting man of service experience who
promises to give the downtown boys
plenty of action and George Wilkie, a
sharp lad from the Pomfret string.
AMATEUR TITLES
The coming bout is slated to take
place on February 14 and 15 when all
the city and out-of-town clubs will
compete for the B.C. amateur boxing
titles.
