to be the biggest and most successful ever staged.

the groups concerned, in that there
will be more fun, more publicity,
and more of a chance to really support the University in one of its

P AMS President, Raghbir Basi, has been elected President
of the organization representing over 40,000 Canadian University Students. ,
At   their  annual   convention   In i> ———	
tiuel.ee/ City,   the  assembled  dele I     ™.  l'BC  delegation  to  NFCUS
gates  from  Canadian   Universities |wh,ch    lncl«ded    John    ^Khton,
NFCUS Chairman, and 13rltltL>a Bulla, ISS Chairman, took the series
of reform resolutions to the convention.
These included a recommendation for n paid full-time president
of the organization; nn NFCU8
sponsored national campaign to
have the recommendations of tbe
Massey Commission of National
Scholarships implemented; an
NFCUS sponsored study of courses
and methods of teaching at Canadian Universities and further Attempts on the part of NFCUS to
reduce the costs of obtaining higher education.
It ls not known whether, Basi'*
election means that these* recommendations have been endorsed by
the Convention or whether responsibility has been shifted to UBC's
president to revive the organisation, using the former program of
NFCUS.
The old program laid primary
stress on such things as trying to
arrange a summer seminar tor
Canadian students and the publication of a National University Yfjir
Book. Neither of these <pi'Qjec)t
were successful although they
were tried for several years.

to head NFC US for the coming

Basl takes o\er his new job
from Jean de Murgerie of Laval

The stormy convention that
elected Dnsl president also saw
the walkout of the University of
Montreal from Federation. Montreal's representatives claimed that
fees charged by the organization
were kir too high for the value received from the services provided
by NFCUS.
The threatened .walkout of La

since Hie original proposal wis
rejected.
in its place the convention
adopted a compromise resolution
which will allow the NFCUS members who are interested in the

putting new life and unity into the organization. We hope that the election of Basi means

of actual problems that face Canadian university students.
fright Faced Youths
. tool many UBC students under 21 will
object to being characterized by the Norfolk
*md Western Railway as "bright-faced
Souths." Their showing an interest in education by their current full page advertisement,
in Newsweek allows them some imagination
in their label for those under voting age.
The railway's appeal to parents to take an
interest in sons' and daughters' education u
commendable even if it is tempered with the
frightening thought that many of us are on
"Stalin and Company's prospect list."
The quotation from resident James Gar-1
field that "Next in importance to freedom
and   justice   is   education,   without   which
neither freedom  nor justice  can  be maintained" is sobering indeed.
No one could object either to the railway's
request that parents investigate "radical ideas
brought home from the classroom." Radical
ideas are often worth investigating. In these
days of mental stupefication, nothing could
be more commendable than thinking about
original ideas.
What we can object to is the Norfolk and
Western Railway's implied opinion about our
students and our beliefs. The railway doesn't
see mto think that bright minds go with our
bright faces. One teacher, they say, one text
book, could bring Communism tb hundreds
or thousands of young minds.
We protest the implication that pne teacher,
or one book is sufficient to sway us from
'right" to "wrong". We protest the implication that our beliefs are so ill grounded and
that democracy is so unattractive that one
hint is all that is necessary to wean us to
Communism.
Bring out these so-called "Pink" or "Red"
theories into the bright light of intelligent
investigation. Give us the chance to discover
and to reject fallacious thoughts and iniquitous ideas.
Our danger is not'that Communism is so
attractive that students will flock towards it,
but rather that we will not have practiced
thinking. A belief that students must he
sheltered from others' ideas is far more dangerous than any Communistic belief.

Blood Drive Ballyhoo
The results of the present blood drive have
shown again that UBC students have no
sense of civic responsibility. The blood donated in this drive has fallen far short of
donations collected last spring during lhe
"Beat Texas" campaign.
We arc quite sure that better results will
be attained next spring, when the student
borly vvill hv faced with an All-Canadian
university competition, hut we still fail lu
see   wliv   tin-  ivs|iuh ,e  should   havo   been  so
weak this lime.
Do UBC students really have'to be bally-
hooed into giving blood by weird publicity
campaigns?
We have come to the reluctant conclusion
that UBC students make perfect "sucker"
material for ad-men; that they would respond
more lo a campaign to save baby seals from
extinction hy alcoholism than to a mere plea
lo save human lives by blood donations.

The afternoon was gloomy, the
stands were gloomy und Jelly was
also a trifle depressed. G-ad, who
wouldn't be. The Thunderbirds,

the lighter and .supposedly weaker
Missionaries, had dropped, In typi
cal fashion, another football game.
To call it a game In some respects is glorifying whtat went on
on the blood-stained turf of Varsity Stadium Saturday, it could
be very easily termed a utter (to
use a vulgarism) smozzle.
It was another ln an endless succession of Saturdays when the
UBC grid squad Just didn't have it,
It, of course, refers to the head
work and "old college try" that la
needed to notch a few victories
In this conference.

people ask after a game like that
