Thirteen denominational courses

tienal courses.
Students may also Hat other
courses in which they would be
interested, aad are asked to indicate an approach to tlio teaohing
of those subjects.
When questioned on the refer-
dum, committee chairman Pederson said "it to merely an expression of student opinion, and will
not be binding to anyone."
"The, Board'of Governors Is the
body which determines the courses
to be offered at UBC," ho added.
Pederson admitted that the referendum had some weaknesses. He
saW that sectoral eemmtttee members felt the referendum to bo too
specific in determining the pre-
erences, and that it tended to become "over-denominational."
This was eompensated for, he
added, by the section where students may list courses of their
own choice.
He said" that students must realise that at the present time "tho
university is neglecting a great
body og knowledge which can be
studied  on  the university  level."

Watch This Closely
The referendum drawn up by Ed Pedsr-
sen's LSE Student Committee on Religious
Education will likely be presented to the
student body in the near future.
Considering the composition of the committee, the referendum is probably fairer .and
^clearer than would have been expected.
If carefully read and thoroughly interpreted, it provides an opportunity for a reasoned expression of undergraduate opinion.
The danger is that it may be filled in hastily
with little regard for the niceties of its expression.
The first section lists the possibilities for
unbiased education in comparative religion.
The second, third and fourth sections indicate
possible sectarian or "indoctrination" coures
from Protestant, Jewish and Roman Catholic
points of view. Each section consists of four
questions and voters are instructed to answer
no more than four questions.
The danger, of course, is that the num
bering system is loaded in favor of those who
would subject us to indoctrination.
The Ubyssey has pointed out the dangers
of indoctrination which masquerades under
the title of education. But it will do no harm
to review the case once more.
The purpose of education is the discovery
and dissemination of truth—or, in cases
where truth remains obscured as it does on
most issues, the presentation of the various
points of view in as unbiased a way as is
humanly possible.
Religion, whatever the adherents of the
various sects may maintain, is one of the
latter fields.
That it should be included in a university
curriculum is a fact which few of us will be
prepared to deny.
But we must insist that the various points
of view be presented in as fair a manner as
our resources will permit.
We can only urge, therefore, a strong
vote for the first section of the referendum.
Sifting The Cinema
The history and personality of Bonnie
Prince Charlie have never appealed to me
very much. There has always seemed to be
an undue fuss over this essentially weak man
who provoked an ineffectual rebellion in
Scotland and then departed for France
where he spent the remainder of his life in
dissipation and general uselessness.
The technicolour English-made film
titled "'Bonnie Prince Charlie" relates the history of his exploits in Scotland, and makes
an attempt to surround him with the expected aura of dashing splendour. It is a
reasonably honest film however, and makes
no bones ajbout the contempt in which
Charles Stuart was held by his he-man generals, and the fact that he almost literally hid
behind the skirts of Flora MacDonald, a courageous, strong-minded Scottish woman if
ever there was one.
I feel that David Niven's talents are badly clone by in the role of the Prince. He seemed embarressed both by his lines and his
blond wig. The movie becomes rather tedious
as it progresses through all the well-known
adventures, but to liven the whole thing up
there are some .glorious shots. of Scottish
countryside, Scottish national dress and two
Scottish lassies. The whole thing is pretty
harmless. —JOAN BASTED.
"The Mudlark" is a fine example of what
super-slick production techniques can make
out of what would seem to be an impossible
little anecdote. It is based on a legendary
incident in Queen Victoria's reign. A young
"mudlark" (slum urchin) is supposed to have
broken into Windsor Castle and been instrumental in bringing the Queen out of the depressed state of mind she had entered following the death of Prince Albert. Victoria, so
the story goes, was so flattered by the youngster's devotion to her that she renounced her
self-imposed exile in Windsor and returned
"to the people."
Most discriminating film-goers would
prepare themselves for an overdose of sentiment and syrup-thick Victorian stuffiness
after reading such a plot outline. Surprisingly
though, "The Mudlark" has a reasonably high
entertainment value. Script-writer-producer
Nunally Johnson has injected just enough
originality into the production to counteract
the inevitable" atmosphere of staleness surrounding "the Court." Apart from some
tediously long exchanges of unbroken dialogue, the film creaks along at a fair rate
displaying such unique ornaments as the
polished photography of Georges Perinau and
the delightful acting of Alec Guiness. In fact
the latter's performance is the best thing in
the picture. He plays Disraeli to perfection,
displaying a grace and dignity that Irene
Dunne, as the Queen, never even approaches.
I can't see myself sitting through "The
Mudlark" again, but if you're looking for a<
harmless evening's  entertainment,  it  will
probably fill the bill well enough.

2. Minute No. 8
"THAT damages occurlng as a

AND THAT disciplinary action

of February 16, 1951 AND THAT
this apology be published in the

the apology written by the EUS
executive."
5. Minute No. 12.
"THAT   the   president   of   the
EUS and the Editor-in-Chief of
the Publications Board each be
fined 15.00 for the violation of
By-Law 11. section 3:  "no publications    or    a d v e rtlsements
whatsoever shall be printed or
displayed or distributed and no
member of the Society shall attempt to sell or dispose of any
publication   or   advertisements
on  the campus of the  University without first having secured permission of the Students',
Council,"   payable   by   5   P.M.
Monday, February 19, 1951.
Hoth the apologies and the fines
have been received;  the apologies
nre printed in this edition of the
Ubyssey. The EUS executive have
undertaken an Investigation re the
implication   of  their   members  in
the event mentioned In Minute No.
9 above with the Idea of disciplinary action.
The Ubyssey has agreed, on the
recommendation from council, that
no further publicity will be given
to the events occurring on the
above mentioned days other than
the two apologies and this statement.
To ensure that no such incidents
occur in the future, a committee
was appointed to Investigate (lie
question of faculty editions of the
Ubyssey. This committee has already met and will be making concrete proposals which should be
satisfactory to both the undergraduate societies desiring issues
and to the Ubyssey staff.
Reports appearing In the downtown papers  regarding the occurrences on last Thursday and Friday  were sensationalized  and  we
fire now endeavoring to have them
put in tbe proper perspective.
Sincerely,
Nonie Donaldson,
President,
Alma Mater Society.
steed of the survey of those interested which had originally heen
intended.
But It Is a fair ballot, and represents a positive step towards
courses university level stud; of
religious knowledge being permitted In British Columbia. Its
best feature is its principle of
"unity in diversity," or federalism,
whereby differing disciplines are
taught from their own viewpoints
(up to reasonable limitations). I
think this is carried too far ln ono
or two courses listed.
True unity is not to be found in
Canada by making everyone speak
English, or everyone French, or
everyone- some hybrid, or everyone keeping silent, but rather In
mutual practice and respect of the
two different languages. The same
positive federalism is the only way
we can have religious knowledge
taught at UBC.
That is the principle on which
Columbia University has recently
established a general course
School of Religion, including over
40 courses taught by Protestant,
R.C.,  and  Jewish  scholars.
It is full time we had some positive teaching of God here also, for
the tragic spiritual and moral
weakness and confusion of our
times are both tbe results of trying to educate without God, and
of most of modern troubles.
Finally, I should be a callous
liar after what God has shown
me, especially during the last two
years since I came to believe In
Jesus Christ as the Saviour of the
undersigned sinner if I did not
add a simple warning,
Although learning Is good and
enquiry is good In religious matters, they can be very misleading,
because of the simple fact that
when God shows one the real
Truth He expects a man to respond to that truth not Just Intellectually but with an open heart.
If one ls so pre-occupled with
learning about God that he neglects to follow God's offers to
learn to know Him, he may miss
the last boat.
The road to God is not by the
mind but by the heart. This is because the Way to God Is not Idea-
logical but personal, through the
Person of His own Son Jesus
Christ, the righteous, obedient, loving suffering Servant of the Eternal Creator who gave ua life.
I hope many will seek to take
these courses, 1 hope others will
help them, but most ot all 1 hope
every reader wil) seek and find
the Son of God as his own Saviour
in this troubled and apocalyptic-
world ot A.D. 1951.
Grant Livingston.
Editor, The Ubyssey,

wish to thank those who supported
me during my campaign and on

Last Stand In
Old Gym Not
Memorable One
By DpUG HAWKES
UBC 56; Western 71
If Mr, Pomfret had some
ideas about making the final
game in the old Gym a memorable one Saturday, they were
quickly forgotten when two
Nordic type athletes, Bob Han-
aen and Stan Peterson stepped
on the floor.
The two Americans piled'up between them a grand total of 52
points for the Western Washington Vikings who .defeated the
'Birds Friday and Saturday, the
later night by a score of 56-71,
Hansen got 29 of these while his
colleague managed 23. Previously
coaches had proclaimed Hansen
** one of the most promising newcomers in many a year along with
local   freshman   Ron   Blssett.
Blssett didn't do too much in the
scoring division but did manage to
throttle several of Hansen's many
shots.
Smoothest man on the floor for
the 'Birds was forward John Southcott. Southcott was continually
hustling and chalked up the highest score for UBC with his 17'
points.
As per usual, centre Art Phillips
was the playmaker, working his,
clever hand-offs very well to South-
*cott and Hudson, Phillips collected 11 points,
Brian Upson, Varsity fr,eshman
and one of Pomfret's big hopes for
future Thunderbird squads, started
'Birds rolling in the Saturday game
with a rapid six points which he increased to 14 points until he was
fouled out at the three quarter
mark.

PENN'S SEXTET
NIPPED 3 TIMES
Despite hard playing and
good teamwork, Dick .Penn's
volleyball team fared poorly on
their trip to Seattle Saturday,
as they went down to defeat
at the hands of the three
Washington crews.
In the first contest, against
University of Washington, they
encountered stiff competition
and bowed out 15-5, 15-6 and
15-11. They also lost to Chinese  and  Naval  Station duos.

V & D Contest

Varsity 7; Kerrisdale 0
Varsity's senior Vancouver
and District eleven appeared
bedraggled but a cinch to better Collingwood for league
laurels after whipping Kerrisdale 7-0 Saturday at South
Memorial Park in ankle deep
mud and chilling rain.
In spite or conditions Varsity
played a heads up game all the
way and although Kerrisdale played two men short the locals were
beating them to the ball consistently,-
Peeling Is that Varsity and Collingwood are playing very ■ good
spectator games. One spectator
said that w'len Varsity beat South
Hill they were, better to watch than
any of today's Coust League teams.
At half time, with Bud Dobson,
Ken Campbell and Bill Popowich
scoring the Varsity led 3-0. Dobson,
Campbell, Popowich - and Bob
Osborne scored In the second.
Croalle Mike Puhach had only three
goal kicks in the game.
With three more games to be
played Collingwood has 16 points
and Varsity 14.
The fact that Varsity Is still undefeated after four and a half
months of play (eleven games)
may have some connection with
Coach A. E. Rochman's observation
that the team is improving every
game out as are the individual players.
He also feels that the spirit of
the present Varsity squad exceeds
that of any team on which he has
played.
