Thirty years to the hour after

Gordon W. Martin, UBC law school graduate, has been
refused admission to the Bar because he is a Communist.
This is the substance of a 3000 word statement received
by Martin this week from the Law Society of British Columbia.
The statement established the arbitrary right of the Law Society to
refuse permission of any applicant to
the bar who is not of "good repute"
and makes impossible any appeal to
a higher authority.

Square Deal
For Germans ?
Greer Says No
The German people are not getting
a square deal from occupational forces
This was the opinion of Cliff Greer
at a meeting of t'he, CCF Club Wednesday.
"The British forces are sympathetic
toward the Germans, but they are unable to help them economically. The
Russians and Americans, on the other
hand, force the people to carry out
their wishes," he declared.
"The Germans h'ai'e the Russian
people because the Reds still have
two million prisoners of war which
they hve not yet returned to their
homes. These individuals are virtually cut off from all communication
with  their home  lnd,"  he stated.
Commenting on the political parties he said that the Socialist Party
Democratic was the hope of Germany
today. The Communists, though well
organized are very unpopular and
Christian Democratic Union has no
hold on the people.
Stanford Students
In Gambling Pool
Palo Alto, Calif, (Nov. 12) Men's
Council of Stanford University has
sentenced eight student' football pool
operators to 20 hours work at the
Stanford  Convalescent  Home,
The verdict climaxed Council's
crackdown on national syndicated
football pools operating on the campus.
"It would appear thai thc sentences
are light in view of the seriousness
of the charges," said Tom Diamond,
Council chairman. "However, thc
pool operators appeared before Council voluntarily and gave full details
of  their operations."
"Through their co-operation," he
went on to slate, "The activities of all
pools on the camus have been stop-
If you stroll some evening into a downtown theatre and see
yourself flashed on the screen don't be too startled, UBC campus
activities have appeared on wax, on the air and on newspaper
copy and now through the efforts of Film Society they will
be recorded on film.
The short subject documentary is
being filmed by Jack Rogers, Ken
Stunden, Bob Dore and Richard Driedger of the UBC Film Society. Covering practically all phases of campus
life, the film will feature particularly
the social, sport and club activities to
give outside audiences a view of what
university student's do in their spare
time and in the time they can't spare.
The documentary will cover various
sports events throughout the year,
forums, club functions, dances, URS
shows, Publications Board production

library activity.
a bugle's thin cry brought them together in the two minutes of homage
set aside on Remembrance Day.
Sharply creased uniforms of the
Canadian Officers Training Corps and
University Naval Training Division
fronted the gathering of First World
War veterans who had served with
the 196th  Universities Battalion.
On this day 30 years ago they had
been in Mons, scene of battle hours
before the surrender.
From Arthur E. Lord, former Alma
Mater Society president, now city solicitor, came the words that all were
thinking: "Was it worth it?"
As they bowed their heads in tribute
to the fallen of two wars, UBC's
veterans automatically thought: "will
we have to do it again?"
No, said the former AMS president,
not if men >can learn co-operation in
their daily lives and apply it to the
politics of the world.
A prayer, a hymn from the Varsity
Band, and the flags were rolled up
for another year.

Liberal Club Meets
Monday, November 15
There will be a general business
meeting of the Student Liberal Club
on Monday, November 15. in Aggie
100 to discuss resolutions to Ire presented to the forthcoming Young
Liberal   Convention.
Peter Mclntyre, president of the
society, hopes that when the film is
completed with narration dubbed in
later, it ought be shown throughout
British Columbia High Schools and
exchanged with other universities.
Tho only other university in Carrada
'.hat boasts a Film Society, as far as
it can be determined, is the University
of Manitoba whose group is doing a
limilar film of their campus. It is
hoped that an exchange can bc arranged in tlie future.
The UBC Film Society is a very active group and points with pride to
its Engineers, Artsmen, Teacher
trainees, and Commercemen who
work  together  in  perfect harmony.
Besides ihe weekly Tuesday night
series that are shown in the auditorium and the bi-monthly Thursday
afternoon musical film classic series,
the society does all the film project-
don for various clubs on the campus
free of charge.

Student- Lawyers Plan To
Circulate Strong Petition
Students' Council felt the weight of legal wrath for a brief
moment Wednesday morning.
When   Dave   Williams,   USC   chair- <♦>	
to   inform   third-year
man, rose io nnorm uirrcl-year law
students that the men's washroom
on the top floor of the Brock Building was now "out of bounds" t'o male
law students, he was greeted with
indignant  cries  of   protest.
That particular washroom, the lawyers protested, had always been in
the masculine domain. Besides, it was
right next door to the law lecture
That, replied the hapless Williams,
was tho edict of the "Privy Council
Division" of Student Council!*
The lawyers—Williams dissenting—
Immediately put through a resolution
censuring Council for its "highhanded" action.
A petition is soon to be circulated
among Law Undergraduates demanding  the  return  of "their  washroom."

tained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions."
The report goes on "The benchers
having seen and heard the applicant
giving his evidence do not believe
that Communist as he is he can be
credited with either the desire or the
ability to remain a Communist and
deviate from Communist policies and
activities to the extent which it
would be necessary for him to deviate in order to comply with the
terms of the oaths which would be
required to be taken by him as a
Barrister and Solicitor."
Final paragraph of the 3,000 word
reasoning states;
The Benchers have had the advantage of observing the demeanor of
the applicant in giving evidence and
of hearing full argument on his behalf. They have given full consideration to such evidence and argument.
"Their decision in the light of the
foregoing facts and circumstances is
that at this time in Canada the applicant:
1. Is not a fit person to be called
1 to the bar or admitted as a solicitor
of the supreme Court of B.C., and
2. Has not satisfied them that he is
a person of good repute within the
meaning and intent of the Legal Professions Act."
In reply to the Benchers statement
Martin says, "Every democratic citizen will be shocked at this decision
which is a profound violation of personal freedom and sets a precedent
which can be used against anyone for
his beliefs.
"Instead of basing their decisions
on the evidence, the Benchers analyze
events from a highly partisan point
of view, take notice of various newspaper reports, and then attribute to
me ideals and desires which I have
no^ only never had, but which are
directly opposed to those which I
support and advocate."
"In their statement they accuse me,
among other things of being a traitor,
a perjuror, and a destroyer of "your
property" because my testimony conflicted with their idea of what a member of the LPP must be."
"I can only hope that public opinion
will make it clear to the Benchers
that such a limitation of civil liberties as is entailed in their refusal
to permit me to practice my profession,
is contrary to the public interest of
Canadians of any time."
Martin is at present employed in
the offices of J. Stanton, prominent
city barrister and solicitor,
New Form
For Veterans
With Grants
Special Meeting
Next Wednesday
Circulation of a questionaire
on finances to every student
veteran on the campus will be
undertaken soon by Branch 72,
Canadian Legion.
The move to contact all DVA students on the question of grants and
loans was made at a general meeting
of the branch yesterday. The meeting
unanimously approved a resolution
to scrap the present questionaire,
which applied only to veterans whose
grants had expired, in favor of the
more romprehensive form,
The completed forms will determine
the basis of any action the branch
may take in the matter of loans and
Attendance at yesterday's meeting was "considerable better" than
that at the last generas meeting, officials of ihe Legion said. However,
president Mike Lakes stated it was
"not good enough."
"I want to see 130 people at next
Wednesday's meeting, enough to fill
this room,"  he said.
The meeting, held in Applied Science 202, inaugurated a new plan of
Legion gatherings. Instead of a monthly evening meeting, the branch will
hold a series of meetings each Wednesday noon during this month. The
new system ie beinb tried in an effort   to  boost attendance.

letters to the editor
eport To Our Stockholders
Wo once promised ourselves that we would
never discuss Ihe problems of The Daily
Ubyssey in these columns since our obvious
function is to fjll our pillars of type not
with talk about ourselves, but with talk
about other people.
Next Tuesday, however, students will be
asked by the finance "probe" committee to
place restrictions on The Ubyssey which concern students as a whole as much as they concern us.
The investigation committee set up to discover weaknesses in the financial structure
of thc Alma Mater Society will ask you to
give one member of Students' Council the
power to dictate what notice of advance
events shall be carried in these columns.
The co-ordinator of activities, a member
of council, would have the power to dictate
how much space should be devoted to each
forthcoming event, six inches to the Arts
Prom or seven to the Science Banquet, a full
issue perhaps to the next football game.
Last week the recommendation was presented to Students' Council by the probe
committee for endorsement. Students' Council turned it down. The member of Students'
Council who would have had the power, the
co-ordinator, vigorously opposed it. He didn't
want the power.
The recommendation will still be presented, however, to students at the general meeting Tuesday. Because the resolution was
framed by persons whose task it was to bring
financial stability to student government, their
logic is clear and it has some weight to it.
Members of the probe committee felt that
if the AMS is to be financially stable the
events on which  it hopes to make money
must receive adequate publicity.
Naturally The Daily Ubyssey is the medium to give most of that publicity. In the past,
members of the probe committee felt, The
Ubyssey had not always fulfilled that publicity function and money was lost on social
events. The logical conclusion was to assure
that adequate publicity would be forthcoming
irom I'he Ubyssey.
Members of Students' Council, when they
rejected the proposal, realized that such a
measure would not give you a better newspaper. It would not remove typographical
errors nor inaccuracies. They realized that
it is to the advantage of Ubyssey editors to
produce as good a newspaper as possible,
since many hope to continue in journalistic
They realized that if items are left out of
The Ubyssey it is because of the imperfections
of volunteer labor, just as the Mamooks often
forget to paint signs and Players Club people
sometimes miss their cues.
As a result, Students' Council will ask
your approval on Tuesday of an alternative
measure directly opposed to that offered by
the "probe" committee. They will ask that a
press relations officer be appointed to core-
late the work of Council and publicity media.
It is a sound measure which was supported
by this newspaper, It is sound because it is
workable, whereas laws making demands
which often cannot be met are not workable.
Support for the measure proposed by
Council and defeat of the recommendation
from the probe committee will constitute a
vote of confidence in student administration,
and their mandate to continue.

Dear  Sir:
... in regard to freedom of
speech   on   university   campuses.
I was . . . surprised. . . by the
recent publicity concerning that
matter as it relates to the University of Alberta, since there has
been no administrative action on
the  subject  this session.
We have a list of eight standing
regulations relating to various
student    activities.    These    reguia-
man   that   the   press   reports   were
very misleading.

and always has been, free to gut
any reputable speaker for its over:

Ubyssey, like a lot cf other Canadian papers, was duped by an incorrect Canadian Press dispatch relayed to Vancouver as a result
of thc "misleading press reports"

Once Over Hardly     by hal tennant
Informal Interview
EDITOR'S NOTE: Thc publication of the
nasty insinuations appearing below does not
necessarily constitute an endorsation of them
by the editorial staff of The Daily Ubyssey.
And it i.s probably their recognition of this
the campus who are more conscious of the
unbiased, impartial, unadulterated nature of
Daily Ubyssey reporting than the student
editors and reporters themselves.
And it is probably their recognition of this
divine state of affairs that makes The Daily
Ubyssey second to none among UBC daily
It is little wonder, then, that during the
times I have had a chance to return to the
campus this year I have made a point of rejoining the stall for a clay, if for no other
purpose than to steep myself in impartiality,

Men like you individual yat
feminine, not one of the mob.
But look , around you on the
:ampus . .. how much individuality do you see?
It is not meant here that you should
vear glamorous gowns or cashmere
vool suits to class. No, we are only
trying to impress upon you the meaning of fashion, and its importance to
you. Fashion is not enly a matter of
clothes and cosmetics—fashion is an
Attitude of mind; it represents woman's
position in the world.
In the 1920's, women were fighting
for "equality with men. They bobbed
their hair, slashed on gaudy lipstick,
and became habitual smoker.? and
drinkers. They even hid their femininity with the famed "flat-chested"
But today, women are secure in thc
knowledge   that   they  have  won  this
fight.   This   security   is   reflected   in i
their   figure-accenting   clothes,   (with
complete lack of masculine influence)
their soft,  delicate  looking make-up, '<
their inborn poise. Not only are they ,
equal with men—but they add to   this 1
their   intangible  femininity. j
Men don't really notice your clothes
but if there is something wrong, they ,
note it right away. They like some ;
indication of a nice figure—but not if
it is conspicuous! Men note a slender
ankle and a curving instep— and
what dismay to find these treasures
disguised  in dirty saddles.
Most of them like color, but they
prefer the familiar calm tones, the
clear natural colors, rather than the
starv'ling "eye-sores.''
The reason for men's uproars about
Ihe so-called "new-look" was simply
because it was new, but now listen
to the purrs of approval. But if all
these points do not work in your case
(hen blame yourself for not knowing
what   pleases   ycur   particular   MAN.

Record Crowd Expected Saturday
For 'Birds Last Home Game

It won't be just an ordinary football game in the Stadium
tomorrow at 2 p.m. when the Thunderbirds make their last
home stand of the 1948 season.
For the spectators  it  will  be  just<§>— —.—	
the close of another season but for
many of the players it will be their
final appearance under the Blue and
Gold banner, and there will be lumps
in more than one throat when the
curtain is rung down.
Such grid stars as Doug Reid, Dmitri
Goloubef, Alex Lamb and Dave Storey will be hanging their strip up for
good after three year^ of the American game and in some cases two of

chance to go out in a blaze of glory

to even money that the 'Birds have

Little or nothing is known about the
crew from McMinnville. A non-existent publicity staff at Oregon school J

However, league statistics sow
that the Wildcats have yet t'o win
their first game of the season. In fact,
they are on the bottom of the conference since the also winless Thunderbird* have a tie to their credit.

expected and sport fans will long remember the fighting spirit in the face
of great odds which has characterized by the players who will be wearing the Blue and Gold for the last
time tomorrow.

the Vancouver Indians on Wednesday

the breather was called.
E'y the end of the second frame
they were on top 5-2 and only by
slacking off a little in the final period
did they allow the pressing Indians to
close the score to 6-5 before the
contest closed.
Besides the three goals of Torasson,
the other 'Birds points were notched
by Hass Young with two to his
credit and "War" Wagner.
Not completely satisfied with the
teams' showing perfectionist Coach
Frank Fredericson called a practice

score three times in the last period.
