join a Western Intercollegiate
Athletic Union at the cost of
a compulsory $6 athletic card.

"Yes" vote would have given
the MAC notice to further proceed investigation. As a result
of the "No" vote the MAC will
drop the matter until such a time
as students again show interest
in such a move.
Men's Athletic Association president Bob Hutchinson expressed
surprise that the "Yes" vote was !
as large as it was. "The students
weren't ready for it," he said.
"Nor were they ready to pay
"Attention now should be
placed on promotion of the East-
West game, and proceeds from
this be used to further competition with Canadian universities.
It could become a Canadian Rose
Bowl," he said.
Successful presidential candidate Ron Bray called the "No"
vote "a very conclusive and a
very wise move at this time.
But it is not absolutely conclusive," he said, "both the amount
©f money and the move are impractical right now, though consideration could be made at a
future <U»te.' •
Decision to put the referendum before the students was
made by the MAC after the
prairie universities showed interest in reforming the old WIAU
football league.
First notice of the MAC's move
brought approval on this campus, but enthusiasm rapidly decreased.
Most campus athletes felt the
overall effect of the move would
be to lower team standards, and
felt the basketball and football
teams would not always be at
the bottom of the Evergreen
MAA voted overwhelmingly
against the move last week, feeling the money could be put to
better use closer to home, and
that such a plan was not the

Quiet Campaign Draws
Only 43 Percent Vote
(Ubyssey   Elections   Reporter)
Ron Bray, a second year law student and this year's Student Council Treasurer was elected Wednesday the new President of the Alma Mater Society. Bray received 1447 votes,
while his only opponent, NFCUS President, Jim Craig, received 965.
Dave Hemphill, this year's
Open House Committee Chairman, won the post of Undergraduate Societies' Committee
Chairman with 1503 votes. His
one opponent, Neville Trevor,
gathered 880 votes.
Students voted a resounding
"No!" in a referendum which
proposed entry into the Western
Inter-Collegiate Athletic Union
at a cost of $6.00 per student.   .
845 students voted for the proposal, and 1584 voted against it.
Campus Liberals swept the
Mock Parliament Elections held
in conjunction with the AMS
election, leading all other parties by a margin of well over
500 votes.

Secrets Of Sexcess
Revealed To Co-Eds
By MARIE STEPHEN and Jackie Stale
Marie Moreau, Sun fashion editor, gave out some choice
advice Tuesday n Physics 200 on how even the lumpiest co-ed
can transform herself into a vision of ravishing beauty.
Miss Moreau began on a prac- *	
tical note, '"Not all of us are
born with good looks so we
must make the best of what
Nature endows," she advised  .
The trick here as every faithful calorie counter knows, is
to minimize bad points with a
little subterfuge if necessary,
and emphasize the good ones.
First the,rc is posture. None
sprung stuff if you smart girls
want to create a good impression. Just make like an express
train is coming past your hinder-
most parts, and tuck 'em in.
And if a few of you are still
practising the book on the head
routine, better be careful. It
develops bulging neck muscles,
you know,
Next, your walk. The secret
is in your pelvis region (as if
you didn't know). And try raising your diaphragm, too (it helps
"Perfect health is still the
basis of all beauty and good
grooming consists mainly of
plain, old-fashioned soap and
water cleanliness which can be
achieved by every girl" she continued.
Giving the inside dope on
spring fashions, it seems the
waistline is going to drop this
season and all clothes-conscious
belles will wear their hemline at
the fattest part of the calf—so
reach for that ruler, girl and
get a jump on the Easter Parade.

Only 2412 students voted in
Wednesday's election, compared
to last year's 3100. Number of
candidates was also down. Four
contested the President's seat
last year, and three vied for USC
Chairman. Only four appeared
on this year's first slate.
The comparative apathy of
students toward this year's election was attributed to the lack
of a "Goon Candidate," and the
lack of any strong contention
for any position.
"Baru may have lost last
year," said Returning Officer
Ralph Sultan, "but he performed
a real public service by stimulating interest and controversy in
the elections."
New President Bray made the
conventional promises of "good
government" when informed of
his victory, phoned his parents
in Victoria, and happily retired
to the Cavalier Room with his
retinue to lay further plans for
the new administration.

Board of Governors," he said.
"This is done, in many other
Universities, and if instituted
here, the plan would result in

No Change In USSR Policy
No immediate change in
Soviet policy is seen by UBC's
foreign affairs experts as a
result of the recent shift of
power   in   the   USSR.
Any speculation on Russia
would be "wistful guessing,"
said Dean H. F. Angus, Dean
of Graduate Studies.
However, Dean Angus felt
that it was "unusual" for the
leading minister to use his in
ability as an excuse to step
down. He was of the opinion
that Malenkov's plan for in
creased agricultural production had failed and that the
elevation of Bulganin would
signal further emphasis on
the production of arms.
Professor H. F. Soward.
head of the Department of
International Studies, felt that
the most striking feature of
llif   shift   in   power   was   Iho
fact that   a "big man  was  allowed''   to resign.
No immediate change in
Russian policy was foreseen
by Dr. W. J. Rose of the Slavonic .Studies Department. He
felt the situation in France
and the Formosa debacle might
call for a change in tactics.
Dr. Rose did not feci that Malenkov will share the same fate
as Meria hut said "anyllnng is
possible.' •hpup1

Flickering  Candle
The vote has dropped to 43 percent from the 60 percent last session, in an election which to date has been sad
to behold. «|J[I
Only three posts have been decided, and already one has
gone by acclamaition. An election meeting held in the Auditorium attracted little more than 150 students. Campaigns
have been dull, unimaginative anid weak.
Plainly, the Alma Mater Society elections to date have
been a flop, on the part of thc candidates, and on the part
of the voters.
We can only hope—rather feebly—that the elections
Will not continue in ths manner.
On   Judging   Judges
It is apparently necessary that we restate our position in
respect to the proceedings of Student Court during its ree-
-ent trial.
• the vindictve letter from Mr. Unldoihill in the adjoining
columns demonstrates that at least one reader is contused.
. We .hold that the procedures and powers of Student
Court and the Investigating Committee must be more
clearly defined; thut. the recent proceedings of the Court too
closely resembled that of an inquisition, and wore too damaging to its reputation.
We would not quarrel with tho Court's decision, in this
case or in any future case. But we object to the manner in
"•'   which the decision was reached, the way in which the Court's
• judges also assumed the role of prosecutors.
Nor would we cast aspersions on those who served as
* judges; it is reasonably certain that lor such work they are
among the best qualified- -in character and judgment—of all
students on the campus.   •
Nevertheless, considerable ridicule was assigned to the
Court following its recent trial. Some of tho more responsible students present considered tho entire affair u joke.
This was chiefly because ol tho double role played by
Faculty Council has indeed expressed concurrence with
the. Court's sentence, but nevertheless has considered expelling those found guilty—and the two Ubyssey columnists
involved as well.
We mention this to illustrate that the Court's autonomy
lies completely in the hands of Faculty Council, which will
withdra wit the moment the Court is not functioning properly.
To function properly, the Court must have the respect
of students. The determination of guilt must be its harshest
sentence, for actual penalties are limited to either a five-
dollar fine or suspension from the AMS, apart from the
extreme step of recommending expulsion—a step not ever
likely to be taken.
The Court must never appear ludicrous, let alone become unjust—a danger quite possible if its judges also servo
as prosecutors.
The idea of students assuming responsibility for their
own discipline is a good one. It would be excellent if this
responsibility were carried out properly.
But the Court must have the respect of the students to
do no, and we seriously doubt that it will maintain this
respect if it proceeds as it did the other week.
On World Government
In Iho International Law symposium I missed one view:
All members of iho panel seemed to start from tho point
that a world stale is desirable.  Is that without doubt?
But what guarantees, in tho least, has tho individual for
his freedom against Iho super-state if I here aro no frontiers
left to escape over; it may bo tho world government will not
like Communists, Democrats, or Nazis?
What happens to a group which disagrees with the official world policy'.' It cannot leave tho world state. And if it
does not obey tho central government, what is going to happen to il? Freedom will bo diminishing.
And as a basic question: Is nol tho base of politics tho
ethical yardstick and is this yardstick not a function of culture and religion" According lo what yardstick is tho world
to bo ruled till we have a viper-culture anil super religion
as well; and shouKI  we try lo achieve  lhal  stage?
It is not only the question, whether a world government
would work bul also, whether we would like lo have il in
principle; I think, there is a lot to bo said against il. Would---
as a substitute for the discussion al the mooting—one of tho
members of the panel cue t<, voice his opinion in this
matter hero'.'

Speech,   Voice    And   Instrument
Whenever the occasion arises
to criticize concerts on the
campus it is necessary that the
criteria of judgments are clour
Last Thursday the Special
Events Committee presented a
reading of Dylan Thomas' "Under Milkwood" by the Reader's
Workshop from the JJniversity
of Washington. All those participating, except for Dr. Bernard Goldstein, the director,
who read for one person unable to lake part, are students
in oral interpretation of literature. Only five of the readers
are speech majors at the University of Washington.
"Under Milkwood", a lyrical radio drama portrays the reality of a spring day in the
life of Thomas' own Welsh
coastal village of Laugharne.
The tale begins with dreams
and ghosts before dawn, moves
through the noisy day of the
villagers and closes as "the
rain of dusk" brings on the
Dylan Thomas knew and
loved each of his characters.
With versatility and quick-
nes* the readers changed
from one character io the
other. Each reader was responsive to the character portrayed by another reader.
The play of word characteri
sation seldom faltered.
The lyric line by which
Thomas portrays character,
mood, thought and 'humour is
not al all easy and on occasions
Ids alliterations can tumble
the  reader  into difficulties.
The readers had carefully
studied the lyric line, content
and meaning and they read
with an understanding and appreciation of the rapid movement of the poetic construction. They all enjoyed the humour and were laughing with
Thomas as they read. The
whole presentation showed
competence in word and voice
production and a concentration
upon precise and meaningful
The music, by Stanley
Krebs, was at all times a completion of Thomas' mood and
tone. Of course, there were
faults: over eagerness to read,
loss of lyric line at infrequent
intervals, a certain shrillness
ol voice production by certain of the female voices and
a faltering over certain words.
These faults are unimportant
compared to the successful
maintenance and production of
meaning and lyric line: nol an
easy achieveemnt when reading Dylan Thomas.
"Under    Milkwood"    was
the  first program  arranged
through  UBC's  membership
in the Northwest College Association.    We   can   expect
equally competent presenta-
dens in the future.
Early  this  term  The  C'Ap-
pella   Choir,   gave   their   first
(joncert   of   madrigals,   motets
and   chorales.'   These    twenty
students are all amateurs with
little    musical    training    who
have never sung together until   rehearsals   began    late    in
Throughout the concert Ihey
maintained a high degree ol
note and word precision. There
is no doubt that during their
rehearsals which are held
three times a week, they concentrated not only upon precise musical production but
upon the hislorical context of
thc music.
They understood thc nature
of the music they were singing.
A fault of a newly formed
choir is the tendency for
each part to sing separately.
Only once or twice was this
fault apparent. Much more
serious was the lack of
breath control, also a fault
of a group which has worked
together for only a short

Our   'Second-class   Citizens
Second Year Law
I noted with interest an article in the January 27 edition
of The Ubyssey, reprinted from
the Alberta Gateway, on the
Canadian Indian, particularly
because I am an Indian.
Generally speaking, the tenor of the article is tho same
paternalistic one used "at" ab-
originies. In other words, 'We
know what is best for you,
therefore you have to do what
we say'. The results, in the past
of such an attitude are too ramified to discuss adequately
here, but it certainly has left
its maf-k on Canada's second-
class citizens.
Although I agree in part
with the following passage
from the aforementioned article:
"The success of the British
Columbia experiment in giving the same liquor rights as
others is fairly conclusive
evidence that, despite legend. Indians generally react
to liquor the same way as
other Canadians."
the author is obviously misinformed about the extent to
which the British Columbia
liquor laws allow Indians
to drink. We are permitted
io drink only in "public
places." In other words to ac
cept a drink from a friend in
his own home would result
not only in him being
charged with supplying, but
it would also result in tho
Indian being arrested for violating the act.
We are allowed to drink
beer in beer parlours but we
cannot take out any except
maybe'in our stomachs. We
cannot purchase liq'uor from
the liquor store. ". . . same
liquor rights . . ."?
There are some aspects to
this one problem that I would
like to discuss al another lime
and it is the one on enforcement of the Act.
The special treatment referred to in the article is questionable because the author
seems lo think being allowed
to live on a "reservation" is
special treatment. In B.C. for
example, all Indian fishermen
have to pay income tax, but
there is a provision in thc Indian Act that income earned
on the reservation is tax free.
The implication that I gather
from thc article is that do away
with the reservations, thereafter, lie magic, the Indian is
a first class citizen. The reservation is the only place we can
call home and even that is not
our i;i tho sense of ownership

Editor, The Ubyssey:
Tuesday's Editorial page culminated a long series of incidents which raise a serious
doubt as the the editorial competency  of The Ubyssey.
As Editor, I feel you should
be taken to account for what
I consider a deliberate attempt
to sabotage the concept of student responsibility on this campus. As statements of fact the
allegations contained in your
editorial are completely orro-
i ictus.
1, The Faculty Council is in
complete concurrence with the
decision of tho Studeni Court
as is evidenced by the following excerpt from the official
statement of that body.
"The   Student    Court    and
Student     Council    aro    commended for the way in which
they have dealt with the mat-
Faculty    Council    went    on
resolution    ajs   approving   'the '
findings of the Student Court,
and further resolved:
"That subject to the right
of appeal to the Faculty Council, authority be given to the
Student Court to assess and
collool   damages."
Tins further delegation of
authority vindicates whal I
have maintained over tiie past
I wo years, namely that where
students have shown an ability
to work constructively toward
solving their own problems or
toward making a positive contribution to the administration
ol' campus affairs that the University Administration will re-
cuj',ni/e   this   contribution   and
give appropriate responsibility
to the students.
One of the many concessions
obtained by Student Council
from the administration in the
past year is the privilege of
having a Student Court to decide matters which concern
Student discipline. I would prefer to think that the majority
of students on this campus are
mature enough to wish to have
students solve their own problems rather than let someone
else do the job.
It is indeed rcgretable that
the malovent pen of the Editor-in-Chief of the Publications
Board can, in a lew words, undo the work of so many responsible  students.
2. The Student Court acted
in complete accord witli the
procedure laid down in the By-
Laws of the Alma Mater Society. Tho innuendo contained
in your editorial as to the injustice of Hie proceedings is
unwarranted and an apology
from yourself to the Court
should be mandatory.
3. The repeated use of the
somewhat limited space in the
Editorial and News columns of
the Ubyssey by yourself in or
der to present personal opinions under the guise of "informed student opinion" constitutes a breach of your obligations to Student Council, the
student body and thc University.
As Editor of The Ubyssey
you are charged with a res-;
ponsibility to present news of \
campus interest to the students,
to publicize* the activities of
all student organizations and
to invite discussion on matters
of concern to the student body.
Above all, in your position
of exercising control over all
copy that goes into the only
campus wide medium of expression, you arc charged with
a duty to make your newspaper
as factually correct, as possible. f
Any analogy lo the partisan-j
ship of downtown newspapers
cannot  lie admitted.
With  Ihe greatest  respect, I
would   suggest   that   you   have j
been   disloyal   to  the  students
whom    you    have    agreed    to
Dick  Underhill,
Student Council President
crown. Over thc past fifty
years what we had considered
our rights have been turned
into "licenses" from thc powers
that be. Now it is suggested we
buy land for us to live on.
There seems also to be an
assumption on the part of
ihe part of the writer that
we Indians are not trying to
better ourselves. A look at
the records in Ottawa will
show anyone interested "that
by our representations we
have been trying to "improve" ourselves.
More   and   more   of   our
people    aro   getting   higher
education.     The    trend    towards self-government in tribal  administration of  reservation  affairs  indicates   the
desire of the Indian to have
a say in what he does. Economically,  wo on  the   coast,
for example, are responsible,
to a  very  large  extent,  for
production in the fishing industry, one of the major industries in B.C.
Contrary to what the author
says,   wo   are   subject   to   Ihe
same  civil  and  criminal  laws
as the citizens are.
The process of social evolution oft lie Indian has to be a
slow one and managed by the
Indian himself. One culture
cannot be lorced clown the hypothetical throat , of another.
We Indian: are people and
should as such be entitled to
have a say in what we do. Besides being Canadians, it is,
after all, up to us whether or
not we betome good citizens.
It cannot be legislated or decreed.

of the huts is responsible for
much attention.
The price of 10 cents is being
charged to watch for half an

on beds) are 50 cents.
It is also rumoured that students living,on either side of the
TV set owner threaten to bore
holes in their walls and charge
five cents to watch the show!

Sports Editor—KEN LAMB
Are Happy Lads
What with blue skies, crisp frosty mornings, snow capped
mountains across the blue water, and a general sleighbell type
atmosphere pervading the air only a month and a half late, it
would be a fitting time to mention a heretofore unsung group of
UBC athletes—the ski team.
' So put down the snowball you were going to heave at the girl
across the aisle, and listen.
UBC's shush-boomers came home the other day from their
efforts on Banff's Mount Temple and Sunshine Mountain.
With them they brought the record of having placed fourth ln
m six team meet, which, when one considers the competition, was
not at all bad. UBC picked up 266 points in the three event meet,
only 20 less than victorious Washington.
UBC's Harvey Abell came fourth in the total individual score,
besides leading the UBC team ln the cross country and giant
slalom. Heiko Socher, transplant from Germany, and graduating
this year in Forestry, finished first among the campus men in
the downhill.
The team, which because of lack of Evergreen Conference
competition competes in the Northwest Intercollegiate Ski Association, takes off again this weekend for Stevens Pass, where they
will tingle with the same clubs as last week, plus a few more.
.Despite the imported competition the U.S. colleges entice over
fr«m Norway and waypoints with bits of folding money, the UBC
team is managing to hold its own, and this year has even been a
bit more successful than usual.
• Much of the credit for success has t o go to coach Eric Sailer,
Who comes to us by way of the Tyrolian Alps. A house painter
In his working hours, he has been coming out regularly to mastermind the team, and with some marked success.
-"He ls the first regular ski coach the club has had for sometime. By the rules of the conference, freshmen are ineligible to
compete in actual competition. But manager John Banfield is
confident this year's crop, which keeps its oar (or ski-pole) in by
tagging along at practices, will replace Pat Duffy, Jack Hamilton, and Heiko Socher, all vanishing via graduation.
One of the joys of working for a newspaper is if one sticks at
lt long enough, one is always sure to find out something one did
not know before.
Thumbing through the volume of mail that finds its way into
the sports office, I came upon among a missive to the effect there
is a badminton team, which operates with some success in city competition. In fact there are two!
It seems UBC enters a team in the ctiy B league. Led by Doug
Whitworth ar.d Ken Noble, and some unnamed (in the letter) girls,
the team has won two out of three games.
A C team is also entered and has won the championship in its
league with six straight victories. Cheers. It just goes to show what
you can find out if you wait long enough.
And ending on an odd-ball note today: It comes by way of
listening to MAA secretary Bob Hutchinson that once upon a
time down on the Inglewood golf course near Seattle, a golfer,
moderately successful in amateur circles, drove his second shot
into the crotch of a tree.
Being a sporting type, and rather than take a stroke, the lad
' climbed into the foliage and took a swing at his erring ball. Lo,
the ball obligingly sailed out of the tree and onto the green from
whence the golfer putted for a par hole.
Thus endeth today's lesson.
Swimmers Suffer  First
Loss, At Washington
Max Howell's aquatic athletes ran into a tougher gang than
they'd counted on last weekend when they swam against the
University of Washington freshmen.
Showing their strongest team in years, the Washington
men more than doubled the score on a hard trying but unsuccessful UBC crew.
Birds actually racked up some
faster scores in Washington's 25
yard pool, and Bob Bagshaw
broke a UBC record, but the try
wasn't quite enough to pick up
the marbles.
Don McLennan picked up one
of UBC's three lonely firsts
when he won the 50 yard freestyle. He placed in the 100 yard
UBC's other firsts were in the
150 yard medley and in diving,
copped by unsung Don Francis,
a  bit of a dark horse.
Bob Bagshaw  took second  in
the 220 and 440 yard  freestyle,
and Brian Harvey was third in
the 200  yard  breastroke.
UBC's next meet will be
against the Eastern Washington
Savages, a team the Birds will
have little trouble boating. East
em and Western Washington,
who lost badly to UBC last
month, are tho only other schools
in the Evergreen Conference
with swimming teams.

YMCA Wins First
Game Of Semis
YMCA 65 • Braves 32
When asked the other day if he was going to employ a
zone defence against the YMCA in Tuesday's opening game of
the Junior League semi-finals. Brave coach, Gerry Kenyon,
would only say "shh, musn't let the other coach hear or he'll
«rbe ready for it."
JV's Meet
The up and coming Cloverdale
quintet will be the opposition
tonight at 8:45 when the Jayvees trot out on the Lord Byng
floor for their usual Thursday
night action.
Fresh from a desparation 50-49
win over the Pilseners in which
UBC was ten points shy of a
victory with a minute left, and
which saw Jayvees Don Gunning
pot the winning point as the
final whistle blew (shades of
Frank Merriwell), Dick Penn's
crew will be out to gather some
self-respect to take with them
into  the  impending   playoffs.
Well, either somebody tattled,
or the Y team was using Uncle
Ezra's crystal ball, because they
clipped the Braves 65-32 Tuesday night, and it was by their
clever destruction of Gerry Ken-
yon's  zone  that  they.did   it.
The Braves helped a little by
giving the city club a distinct
advantage on the free throw line,
which is something they've been
doing most of the year.
Kenyon is mentioning better
things are in the offing for this
Friday's game, which is at 6:45
at J.O.
Maybe the Braves will ease up
on the fouling and win a ball
before the Carmichael Cup is
finally awarded, the way things
are, either the Tommies or the
Braves look like the winners.
It follows that today's game,
going at 12:45 on the Aggie field,
may well be the deciding match.
It is being played after it was
postponed because of wet
grounds on  Saturday.
Though some would favour the
bigger and faster Braves, the
Tommies can't be sold short.
Their record of the past few
months is full of nothing but
wins, and today is not necessarily  time for  a  change.
Dr. Parr's Cinderella crew
may just take the Braves for a
On the other hand, Maxie's
champion Braves are an outfit
that might win ,the occasional
game in the first division, especially with their "southern
Cross Ghost" performing on the
three-line. Cold mathematics give
them the nod, but not by more
than five points if they're lucky.
Tom Anthony, suffering from
a stomach injury, is the only
doubtful starter. He has doctor's
orders to take it easy, and his
absence could mean the difference between win or loss.
Giant-killer Dick Owen will
be directing Braves from his
scrum-half spot. And old pros
Billy Gordon and Marc Bell will
spearhead the Tommies' attack.
Skiing will take the order of
the day this Sunday, when the
annual Intramural ski meet
takes place out on Grouse
Mountain with things getting
underway around one o'clock'
The hill will open at 10:30
for practice and will elose at
12:30. Each team is allowed
to enter four skiers, with the
first three counting i the Giant
Slalom. John Banfield, manager of the meet, will accept
no late entries.
Draws are being made today
since February 9 was the
deadline for entries. A. large
turnouj is expected from the
teams competing and the competition should be quite rugged.
