Speaking for the negative, Tom
Franck said that the word guarantee wu repugnant to the key

A New Era Begins
In this space last week we extended our
surprised congratuations to the football team
and to 'the spectators who so persistently
fought for football victory.
Today we again extend our congratulations, for this win is astounding,
Last week they had royalty to work and
fight for. This week they fought for nothing
else than the glory of Alma Mater.
This is the first time that the editors of
thf Ubyssey can remember that any organization has physically worked so hard for UBC.
The football win over Central Washington came as a fitting climax to homecoming
« Ted Lee and the Homecoming Committee have come up with one of the finest programs of effcient organization.
Perhaps the actual award should go to
St. John, president of Kickapoos, who,
organized the float parade and most of the
details that made the game as colorful as it
AU this activity, including the "spon-
tanious" snake and car parade downtown
last week, seems to be symptomatic of an
awakening of student interest and spirit.
Last year tha AMS spent vast sums of
money to kill student apathy. Now, without
any effort on anybody's part, an interest in
their Alma Mater has arisen like the proverbial Phoenix.
. .All it has required is hardworking football team that produced two sensational vie*
tories, and a few enthusiastic students who
gave ihem some support.
The Students at UBC live again!

The success of U.N. Week on lhe campus,
has proved that tbe pessimists who predicted
that interest in international affairs would
flag on the campus with the exodus of the
veteran population were wrong.
The crowds who flocked to the week of
debates, the flag-raising ceremony and the
opening of International House proved that
UBC students are. keenly interested in the
problems of U.N.—and that they recognize
the responsibility which students must accept
for the world of the future.
If U.N. has seemed, on the surface, to
fail in its major task—the preservation of
world peacer-it is only because we are expecting too much too soon,
..All too often we forget that the World
Health Organization ia working quietly behind tiie scenes to relieve* millions of constant
threat of deadly disease and that UNESCO
and countless subsidiary bodies are striving
to remove the spectre of starvation which-
hangs over better than hall tbe world's population—arid to combat what, perhaps, is man's
deadliest enemy in the twentieth century:
It is up J* groups like U£C's U.N. Club to
lay the groundwork for an active interest in
U.N. on the part of the man on the street.
U.N. must not be thought of as a remote
giant of no interest to you and us.
It, is your responsibility and our responsibility.
In the last analysis we are the U.N.
Since the appearance of our Friday editorial entitled "Why So Shy, Gentlemen?"
'The Ubyssey has received a steady flood of
Comments, of course, are just what we
had hoped to receive—but we have been extremely startled to find that large numbers
of students and faculty members have taken
the editorial as a charge that the Board of
Governors and Dr. MacKenzie are mismanaging the university's funds and even indulging
in political graft.
The editorial, however, was not intended
to leyel any such charge or even hint that The
Ubyssey felt that such a charge might, within the bounds of possibility, be justified.
It is surely bad enough for a man to be
falsely accused without finding out that his
accuser did not even intend to accuse him.
We feelr therefore, that some clarification
of our position is called for.
We pointed out that we had apparently
been refused a budget breakdown despite Dr.
MacKenzie's promise of a "breakdown sufficiently complete to satisfy all students'
major doubts."
And we said that people who refuse to
reveal facts usually have something that they
want to hide or suspect that the facts will
raise difficulties for them if made public.
In this case the most likely reason for
refusal is that release of the budget would
keep the administration answering questions
from now until doomsday.
Refusal to release information, however,
inevitably creates suspicion.
And suspicious imagination with no facts
to rest on is wholly likely to run wild.
No one knows how wild the suspicions
may become.
It is, therefore, usually wise to release
the facts.
And All That    By Les Armour
The British elections present an anomo
ly which is not only likely to leave the Britsh
people but the whole world in a state of confusion for some time to come.    '
The Conservatives are the government
with a 20-seat majority—but Laborites polled
200,000 more votes than their Tory opponents.
The Labor Party lost more than a score
of seats—yet Aneurin Bevan and his followers scored an astounding victory.
The first anoraoly, of course, is due mostly to the fact that it takes fewer rural voters
than city voters to elect a member.
Labor gets its strength in the cities, the
Conservatives in the rural areas.
Surely the fact that the party with a
minority vote in a straight two-party fight
should form the government points up the
need for reform. The same unbalance applies
in Canada and some day the same situation
will arise if we do not reform the system.
But perhaps the most interesting feature
of the election remains the victory of Aneurin
It would seem obvious that Bevan's program of more social welfare and less armaments meets with the hearty approval of a
great many people in England.
A nation which is just now recovering
from the ravages of a major war Is hardly
likely to welcome another.
The British are well aware that, if a war
does come, it wiU be because the West has
bungled as badly is the East and by and
large* they want no part of such a war.
If it does come most of them will feel
that they must fight and there can no doubt
as to which side they will fight on.
In the interim, h©lWever, they want to
do everything possible to avoid such a war.
One of the best ways to start a war is
to start an armaments race. And one of the
best ways to make war inevitable ie to carry
that race to the ridiculous lengths which the
western powers now seem determined to do.
Such a war could leave little on, which to
continue a democracy. The very urgency of
it would require a propoganda drive wnich
could leave us only with an oligrachy little
better than that of our enemies.
The only hope may be organized passive
Perhaps Mr. Bevan, with a little time for
reflection on the opposition benches, will
think it over and do something about it.

For Old 'Grads1
'Birds Clipped 77-32;
Old  Boys Draw, 11-11
Saturday night, in the Memorial Gym, the high-flying
"latter-day' Grads clipped the current Thunderblrd's wings
via a 77-31 shellacking. The 'Birds, were rather an easy mark,
for such old masters as Sandy Robertson, Reld Mitchell, and
Long John Forsyth. "
Icemen In Debut Wednesday
UBC Thunderbirds' hockey team will make Its debut of tho
l!t*M-r>*j season tomorrow night at the Forum. Birds play the highly
touted B.C. Electric "White Hawks" in the first game of a double-
header bill.
, Monday night at Kerrisdale Arena, Birds held their final practice before their first game. By all Indications UBC will loe a fast,
'hustling club dominated by youthful players. The average age of
the Bird lineup Is twenty. The other Commercial League t«ams
have a predominance of older players who lean more towards experience than speed; but after watching the two opening games of
the-season last Wednesday It is obvious that experience wins
hockey gumes,
* * * * * #
Birds first line will consist of three veterans of the hockey wars,
Bass Young, (lunnar Bailey and Al Hood. Much of UBC's scoring
punch is certered In this line. Second line is made up of Ken Hole,
Bob Peebles and Mac Carpenter. These three have played for UBC
before and will carry a big share of the .load.,
... Three rookies make up the third line. Steve I'ryschuk at oeiilor,
Marcel Prefontaiae on left wing and Rudolph. Richer on right wing.
Veteran defense-nan Mai Hughes will team up with rookie
Lome Irwin on defence and Sandy Sanderson will be alongside Jim
MeMahon. These four defencemen wyi*- back up the' forward line
and from their performances during practice they will keep the
opposing forwards busy.
# id * * * *
Between the pdsts, young Don Anderson will kick the pucks
out. Don is a fast, right-guessing (If there is much an expression)
iieNninder, and Coach Wagner Is putting a lot of faith in this ex-
Oalgarian. Don uses glasses, is fairly short, and looks like someone
going In for theology. In fact he l» ln theology. But Don has proven
he is right at home In front of the net and UBC will have no
qualms about that position.
UBC Is not. lacking in depth this year, which will eventually
pay off toward the end of the season, Spare goal-keeper Bill Olsen
has been Impressive in practice and a few more should sharpen hla
Birds will give a good account of (themselves on Wednesday
night and this writer predicts a win. Game time Is 7:45 at the
Forum, und all you hockey fans are asked to come out and support
your team.
The "old Grads" game ended in
a 11-11 tie. This contest featured
grey heads,..bulging waistlines and
comic    pratfalls    to    the    stage,
(floor, that is). The old boys put
on quite a show. Whenever one of
the gladiators pants fell, the game
would almost come to a stand-still
while the referee and a teammate
assisted   the   unfortunate   to   his
feet. Seriously tho', the old grads,
are to be congratulated for their
fine effort.
In the feature game the 'Birds
never posed a threat to the crafty,
smooth-playing Grads. The general
procedure was much the same
throughout; Bill Bell, Long John
Forsyth, and his cohorts would
snag the rebounds under their own
basket, rush the ball back to the
'Birds end, before any semblance
of a defense could be set up, and
ram In ajayup shot.
The starting |lrieup for the grads
would send any sane coach right
out ot this world. It Included Sandy Robertson, Reld Mitchell, Jim
McLean, VL.J." Forsyth and Harry
Kermode. Starting for the 'Blks
were: Art Philips, John Southcott,
Buzz Hudson, Elmer Mathews and
Brian Upson.  '
