International Law
Still In Infant Stage
Like the law of each community, International Law must
grow up by use. Community Law originated with the early
cave men, and through the ages it has matured into an organized body of statutes.   International  Law  must follow this
process also. ^
This   was   the
i the growth of the law. He said tint

stated Presldont MacKenzie. "Infective operation depends upon, in
part, of the existence -and maturity of the commnuity in which it
operates," MacKenzie said.
NO COMMUNITY
Professor fio'.true, assistant pro
fessor in the faculty of Law, stated
that one of the things lacking in
international law is that "We
haven't yet got a world conimiiu
ity."
But all four experts agreed that
international law has made a great

although he was not necessarily
complimenting the outcome, he did
think that the way those trials
were handled was perhaps the best
way possible. Again it was.stressed
that the law is still in its infamy,
and will learn and grow in time.
It  was agre»d  that   international
law  was  to protect   the  individual'-
rights.    Dean    Angus    stated    that
'When   you   make   the   indivldu::

which   was   termed   as   having   an I
"indecent character" by the Board.
Issue was the Jan. 16 edition
produced by the Faculty of Medicine. Pre-meds published the issue
under tho banner of "The Medica-

Student Union President Conrad
Wyrzykowskl made the statement,
"The University of Manitoba Students' Union regrets the necessity
of action taken in this regard but
can readily understand it.'

The euitorials discussed the existence of censorship and restrictions on freedom of the press,
other than those of good taste and
propriety, in accordance with a
policy resolution on censorship supported unanimously by the 23 member newspapers of CUP at Its annual conference.
AT MONTREAL
The resolution was passed nt
the 15th annual Canadian Unlvers
ity Press conference held In Montreal, December 23-30, as a result
of requests by member papers for
jild in combatting these restrictions on  university  newspapers.
A small minority of membei
papers are subjected to direct pre-
censorship of all editorial context
by faculty advisors.
A recommendation requesting
member papers to publish editorials against this censorship was
then passed unanimously.

This is the provision ot a resolution passed by CCF Provincial Executive on Jan. 10. It wilt allow

NOT   FINAL
A Special CCF Executive Committee met with the campus group
several weeks ago, to formulate nn

Commented Ed Zilke, member
of the Campus group committee:

AMS Election
Before the campus is in the turmoil of
AMS elections we would like to make a few
advance comments from this safe distance
When overly sensitive candidates cannot accuse us of playing politics on behalf of one
person or another.
First, we are glad to see that the elections
committee intends to enforce regulations regarding campaign spending. Their success
in this matter will aggravate an already serious problem for candidates however.
It has always been a major difficulty for
a candidate to make himself and what he
stands for known lo the general student body.
When he can only spend a very small amount
of money this problem is intensified. It must
be solved if students are not to go blindly to
the polls and discharge their democratic obligations by simply voting for the person at
the top of the ballot.
For the period of the campaigns, three
w,eeks, all clubs and organizations owe it to
their members and the campus as a whole
to drop their indifferent attitude toward local
politics and take an interest in seeing that
our Council is composed of the best possible
personnel. They can do this by making available a few minutes at their meetings for tho
candidates to introduce themselves arid state
their policies.
To those organizations that feel that campus
politics are none of their concern we would
suggest that Council adopt a similar attitude
when it, comes time to allocate student funds
next Fall. Those who are willinc; lo help mil
.should get. in touch with the elections committee to arrange giving prospective campus
wheels the opportunity to air their views and
their membership a chance to size up what

Co-ordination?
The co-ordinator of activities for the AMS
seems to have ceased co-ordinating. Students
were starved for noon hour lectures this
term until last Friday when two outstanding
political meetings were scheduled for the
same tim° . . . and in the case of the Liberal
meeting for the same room as an enginecrin:;
film.
This week the same soil of thing is happening with numerous interesting activities being
scheduled for the same day like Bill Rea, Rpy

they have to offer.
Two other matters should receive serious
consideration at this time. First is the record
of women on the Council. It is not a creditable
one. Only the very exceptional woman contributes anything in the way of ideas and
discussion to the meetings. Those Who are
elected to run certain organizations such as
the WAD usually do this job competently
enough but in so far as council membership
is concerned they are a minus quantity.
When casting their ballots students should
consider this record of failure before voting
for women fpr any positions other than those
for which men are not eligible.
The other matter deserving of serious consideration when sizing up the qualifications
of candidates is whether or not the individual
will be in the city during the summer. In the
past couple of years most of the councillors
with the exception of the president and
treasurer have headed for the wild blue
yonder as soon as examinations are over.
This means that all the planning necessary
for a successful year in office either is not
done or is left to the overworked president
and treasurer. Council membership is a year
round job and does not just extend from
September to March.
All candidates would be questioned as to
how much time they intend to be available
for work if they are elected.
To all prospective candidates we wish the
host of luck. Don't just run lo get a free
blazer, though, or you may be disappointed.
We may not be able to afford such luxuries
next year.

I'd like to suggest to co-ordinator Mr. Sil-

have some effective co-ordination!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir;
This letter was not going to be
written until later in the week or
perhaps next week. It depended
on when the next issue of the B.C.
Gazette came out. It would have
been entitled "In re change of
Name." However, It has come to
my attention that the presertf
newspaper has beard the news
and not weighing any further
unplea.snnt Interpretations, I have
had to jump the gun at this early
date.
I also have concluded that for
the same reason I must explain
something which Is rightly my
own private business although I
doubt how long I would be able
to keep it that way. It is already
known in Vancouver among my
friends, family and associates,
but I trust no one but myself to
tell It on the campus.
FAMILY HltTORY
I waa born William Stephen
Thompson. However, for the last
fourteen years I have had a step-
fa tlier whose name Is John McJ-
(Iregor Selble. In 1949 my brother,
one naymond Charles Thompson,
on reaching the age of 21 years,
changed his name under the Act
of our Province to Raymond
Charles Selble because he, like
myself, had been raised, fed, and
put through school by the aforesaid John McGregor Selbie.
On tho Christmas of the year
195.'!, I, William Stephen Thompson, to tho knowledge of three
uncles, three aunts, innumerable
cousins, various neighbours and
my father und mother, -went to
the llureau of Vital Statistics In
(he City of Vancouver to likewise
change my name.
The pre-requlsites are the filing
of the Intention with one newspaper in the City and one notice
lu the li.C. Gazette; whereupon,
I go back to the Bureau and complete the change,
plete the change. I now await th?
II.C. Gazette.
I trust that nothing- further
will be said about It and my private life, If not my public, will
remain my own. I remain sin-
ccrely.
(W. H. Thompson),
W. S. Selbie, post-dated.

Kditor, the Ubys.sey,
Dear Sir:
I bate to make a nuisance of
myself but these things will out
you know.
Before leaving the world of
friendly people and launching
Into a world of complaint and
bitterness allow me to say this.
Every pubster Is an honorable
and friendly person and far be It
from me to claim that the EIC Is
anything but an honorable pubster.
NO WOMEN
Back to the complaint. Do you
realize, sir, that there is a shortage of female staffer* on the staff
of our paper, the blorious
UBV93EY? That is my complain!
—in mice—as the Romans used
to say—in a nutshell. Just what
do you propose to do about this
shortage? if It is not remedied
the poor, overworked and over-
dated women on the staff now
will become nervous wrecks aud
the situation will only worsen.
It Is up to you as the BIC and
therefore, Great White Father of
n glorious institution, to remedy
this situation immediately.
I   leave   you   now   with   this
thought in mlndl and let's hope,
on your conscience as well).
Yours hopefully,
A Staffer.
ip *P ifi
Editor, the I'byssey,
Dear Sir:
When you published our letter
criticizing "The Fishy Eye" in
last Thursday's edition you made
several serious typographical errors which made our thinking appear as Mr. Ijoosmore's.
We were trying to explain that
Just as an Individual should be
given the chance to earn higher
wages if he will work harder, so
should a corporation be allowed
to earn higher profits for working
harder.

to tbe social group which invited

The fad that 1 didnt' understand

they had not followed either.
What wa.s important was lhal
Adenauer was unable to attend.
In coii!<e(|ue!ice our group retired to a geniutllcb welnstube in
the neighborhood and sent off a
joint post card to the Herr Dr.
llelehskuiij'ler Adenauer protesting his non-appearance in one
sentence so long, so Involved, and
so polite that there was no room
left for us to sign. We had to
turn the card over and sign In
the blue of the Neckur and the
red of the Schloss on the other
hide.
NO MORE DUELS
But the days of merry student
gatherings in wine-cellars and of
duels Is now over in Germany.
The fencing and color-wearing
fraternities are outlawed, though
enough of their members still
appear nightly In the Red Ox to
keep American soldiers amused.
There is one good reason,
among others, for this lack of
social life among German students-. They just can not afford
it. Sixty-seven per cent of the
students here at Heidelberg 11 vo
on less than 25 dollars per month.
Room rent costs between 8 and
10 dollars per month. And when
you consider that clothing, eggs,
meat are as expensive here as in
Canada, the remaining 15 dollars
cannot be stretched to Include
many frivolities or extravagances.
In the Men.sa (tho Cat) the food
Is very pla!u--a far cry from a
balanced diet. The most cxpen-
sixe meal, flour soup with some
suggestion of meat stock, a bit
of tne.it, and a generous portion
of potatoes, costs .17'L. cents. But
too many German students have
to be content with nothing but a
howl of rice or beans for 7Vi
cents.
Many students work as waiters
in various university Institutions
to earn their meal or a few extra
marks, but there are not nearly
the opportunities for part-time
work that there are in Canada.
Often for the German student the
spending of five cents is a matter for long and careful eotisidera-
! ion. I kn iw I ha t no si m|ent a t

In My View
(David, (phia.
This seems to be the time of
year for formulating "best ten"
lists and nothing seems to fit
into such a pattern more comfortably than motion pictures.
Therefore, in a spirit of humble
conformity, I respectfully submit my list of the 10 best films
of 1952.
1 Limelight: Chaplin's first film
for six years is my choice for the
best and most controversial film
of 1H52. There is little lukewarm
appraisal of "Limelight." It has
been regarded alternately as excellent and as deplorable. 1 consider It a masterpiece.
2 My choice for second place
goes to the ingenious and captivating French comedy La Ronde.
, 3 High Noon: A contrived and
unrealistic ending mars this otherwise superlative suspense western
from Hollywood.
4 Man In the White Suit: Alec
Outness In an amusing and moving
British satire.
5 Encore: Three more Somerset
Maughnn short stories happily
transferred to the screen — "The
Ant and the Grasshopper," "Winter Cruise," and "Gigolo and flic
olette."
6 The African Queen: Humph
rey I.oguirt and Katherlne Hepburn rollick engagingly through
Africa surrounded by gin and Germans.
7 The Promoter: That most versatile actor, Alec Guiness, appears
once more in a highly successful
adaptation or Arnold llennet's
"The Card."
8 Five Fingers: A superior con
trlbution from Joseph L. Manki-
wicz offers highly sustained su
spense and bristling dialogue,     •
9 We're Not Married: In a satirical vein, Kred Allen and Kve Arden
pulsate in this i hove average American comedy.
10 Filmed in Ireland. The Quiet
Man display's the year's most
"lovely to look at" scenery.
Out or this list one is French,
three are llrlHsh, three are Aineri-1
can and No. " is a combination of i
llritisli and  American. j
My choice for the best actor of!
the year would go to Charles Chap-j
lin for his portrayal of Calvero in j
"Limelight." lollowcd closely by,
Alec Guiness as "The Man in the.
White Suit." My choice for best I
supporting 'actor would be Hubert
.Morley ,is t he missionary iu th" ■
"African C^iieen.''
The most huuioroii-i pcioi in
aiiees of t he year were c.ivi n by
Itonald Squire as t he hip's doc
tor in "I'lneore" and hy Charles
Laughtoti as Soapy in "() Henry's
Full House."
The best female performance.-
of the year were given by Kay
W'.ilsh in "Winter Cruise" and
Glynis John ; in "Gig.do and Gigol-
ctte," both from "Lncoi'c." and by
Claire   P.looiu   iu  "Limelight."
My choice for |!C.2's best lllllsi- j
cal was the story of .lane I'roinaii,
"With a Song iu My Heart." The:
best   re-Issues   of   ih."2   turned   out
to be "Fantasia. I'he  Way to the
Stars"   and   "Saints  ..md   Sinners."
Such outstanding films as "Cry
the I'eloved Country." "Outcast of
the Islands," "Come p,acl< Lit.th
Sheba." "ISreaking the Sound Harrier," "The Importance of l!e|ii"
Cine t" and ".Moulin llougc" have
not been included tne reason being I  haveul' s"en them yet. j
Sis Bessie To Reform
For UBC Players Drama
When Louise DeVick next associates herself with a theatrical production, she will be 'going straight' in the religious-
themed "Shadow and Substance" by Carroll, which UBC
Players have planned for next March.
Hut    the    attractive    20-year-old^
IX"   Players  president  will  prob
ably have a hind time living down
her 'torrid' love scenes in tho Avon
Theatre production "Tobacco
Itoad" which landed her and four
companion actors In a jail cell for
tl:ree-c|uarters of an hour last Friday night.
While .«he hadn't bargained for
a course in prison conduct when
she made her debut into downtown
theatricals in the grim. Erskine
Caldwell drama, Louise admits the
hour and a half spent in police,
court between acts of the production were an experience, to be remembered all the same.
COURT EDUCATION
She'll get further court education Wednesday, when she will
report in court with others of the
Road cast while Everyman Repertory company gets a verdict on its
appeal for an extension of the injunction allowing the play to continue its run.
Tiie play wa.s to have closed
Saturday night, but notoriety obtained from police allegations that
Ihe production Is "lewd and filthy"
is assuring the company of packed
houses If the play Is allowed to run.
TORRID—LEWD
Though as Sister Tlessle she's accused of a torrid and lewd love
scene in the drama with Ted Hancock, In the role of Dude Lester,
Louise herself considers the scene
as only rather amusing. The
charges are ridiculous, she said.
Tobacco Road is still too realistic
for most Vancouvorites, the English
student feels, and although other
plays have been presented on the
theme developed by Erskine Caldwell, .she said, these have in previous plays always been given a
glamorous coating.
She first noticed something was
wiong at Friday night's performance, states Louise, when she heard
a commotion off stage and saw one |
of the actors walk off Into the!
anus of two burly policemen. She
remained on stage until a little
police woman grubbed her 'with
a, grip like a vise' and escorted her
to the police station, along with
the others arrested.
POLICE  SYMPATHETIC
The police were all personally
sympathetic, Louise recalls, and
actually were a show in themselves,
all of diem being'six-footers.
Avon Theatre won't continue
Tobacco Road Wednesday night If
the court injunction is not extended, the actress said. There
would be nothing gained by stayin?
open, she felt.
IHC Feature
World T6ur
Students will be Invited to
"Tour the World with International House" when UBC
committee stages its annual
International Ball in Brock
Lounge on February 6.

wearing formal dresses, boys black
suits). Students from other countries have an alternative choice of
wearing costumes of their native
lands.
HIGHWAY  WALL
All the travelling at the ball will
be done via a 'highway' on the
wall, but decorations director Brig-
itta   Ball   Is  keeping   the   route   a
deep mystery.
Less secretive is guide Ann
Chomn who promises that dancing
tourists will get a glimpse of the
national dances of every country
visited' on the ball. Regular dancing will be Interspersed with the
national dances.
Pat Crelian is chairman of tlu j

Miller Cup
Won By UBC
Puil,  Newton  Star;
Birds  Win  Easily
UUC 19; ROWING CLUB 0.
By BRIAN WHARF
Romping to an easy 19-0 victory over Rowing Club on Saturday afternoon before the
season's largest crowd Varsity's
fabulous ruggering Thunderbirds assured themselves of the
Miller Cup, emblematic of city
rugby supremacy.
After the first few minutes of
play it was evident that it win
not a question of who would win
but of bow many points Birds
could pile up before final time.
Absolute superiority In every department made Varsity's twelfth
win of the season a very convincing
one.
A la rue share of good luck attended llirds win. Saturday was
clearly a day on which they could
do np wrong. Over head, under
arm passes thrown blindly at the
last minute Invariably found a man.
On one occasion left winger John
Newton, rinding his way blocked,
heaved a wild pass to the other
side of the field which, by some
miracle, found right winger (ieorge
Pull, who, gathering it up, dashed
1C yards for a try.
BIRDS  LUCKY
Again, after a kick off, nearly
every member of the Birds handled
the ball In an attack that resultel
In Puil scoring although no Rower
had even touched the ball.
Winger Newton and Pull shared
between them all but three of the
points scored by Birds. Puil, showing bis deceptively tricky running
at it's very best, collared a hat
trick while Newton garnered th.-;
other two. i
Yet by no means all the glory !
went to these two. The entire three
quarter line was on top form and
centre men Gerry Main and Ross j
Wright performed brilliantly. Fly j
half Bill Whyte, too. must be men-1
tloned on the outstanding list aloni? I
with scrum half Danny Oliver. |
CAPABLE PACK
Of the forwarders Frank (.lower
was the best of a very solid and
capable pack.
In fact the only Bird suffering
1'i-oni an off day was kicker Boh
Morpord who uii.ssed three conversions and n penalty. Had Mor-
ford been on his usual form the
score would have climbed into the
thirties.
Injuries to stocky little fullback
Don Spence and Danny Oliver saw
Birds finishing the game with Hi
men.
Hinke Resigns

Marge Hinke. elected president i
of Mfiinooks last October, has been

of the club. Pressure of academic \
activity was the reason for the|
resignation. i
A new president will be elected
at ,i meeting in the Brock Double |
Committee Room. Miss Mclvor has
requested -a full turnout of all paid

Birds Lose
Both Games
UBC Scares Whitworth
In  Thrilling  Battle
UBC 52; WHITWORTH 55.
UBC 41; EASTERN WASHINGTON 66.
By ALLAN FOTHERINGHAM
The biggest outburst of campus spirit since Birds won their
second football game in 1951 highlighted a weekend of basketball during which Jack Pomfret's Thunderbirds dropped two
Evergreen Conference games to Eastern Washington and
Whitworth.
After a nervous Bird s(|iiad blew

Eastern Washington tiil-11, UBC it-

I Iff.' students showed their faith
in Pomfiet's Club by turning up,
2500 strong,' to go crazy over the
lighting Birds In the bent game
seen on the campus In several
years. Whltworth, 20-point favorites before the game, were never
able to shake loose from the
tenacious Thunderbird teifm and
the final verdict could have gone
either way.

themselves over their showing Friday night, came out and took the
over-confident Whitworth team by

worst offensive evening in a long

The
Sport
Scene
Varsity's two soccer squads'
missed winning games over the
weekend only because of the
liquid sunshine which forced
cancellation of both contests.
Varsity were leading their
game 3-1 at half-time, when
the ref took off his diving suit,
spat out a frog and called it no
contest. j
Chiefs were also leading 1-0 i
over Sons of Norway at the
half when they packed up their
hip boots and went home after
the ref called the game because
his rowboat got stuck on a
sandbar.
There will be a re-organizational meeting for the Redskins
Cut Km Out, Bring Fin In
UBC fans can still get George Puil into the top ten in
the Vancouver Province's contest for the Athlete of the
Year.
Puil needs several hundred voles to boost him into
the magic ten from his spot in Ibth position. All students
have- lo do is to clip the ballots from the sports page of the
Province and bring them to the AMS office.
Wily Willy St. John, AMS PRO, will do the rest, even
if it is slightly illegal. You bring in the ballots and Bill
wili do the rest.
If all UBC students get behind Gorgeous George, we
c:m make him a contender before Thursday's contest deadline.
