"How do you manage to stay standing up on the icy walks of the campus?"
Reporters have been posing
this question to various people
on the campus, with the hope
of getting some useful tips to
pass on to Ubyssey readers.
John Snowden, resident student' at
Anglican College, flatly refuses to go
outside "until the weather improves".
D'Arcy Dondy, forth year arts,
keeps up by putting big diamond
socked feet down carefully and
Norm Minty, a Union College resident, highly recommends this type of
conditioning, claiming that if wc had
to put up with this sort of thing for
four or five months out of every
year, we would be glad to be in a
place where we only had to struggle
with it for a few weeks at a time.
Gerry McDonald, newly elected
vice-president of NFCUS suggested
you use your army hob-nailed boots
and possibly abstain until Vhe conditions  leave  us.
Luke  Moylcs says hc  just watches
his  feet.   ('.'??)
Dave Brousson, Alma Mater president, said, "I have been tenderly
called "Big Dave" and my feet are
ao big that they arc unable to slip."
Ursula Knight: "If I'm going uphill I lean forward. Going down I
lean backward. On the level I hotel

On Tuesday afternoon UBC's revived, "new look", art library opened
in its spacious new quarters in Vhe
old  periodical  room.
This unique library service, the only
one of its kind in any Canadian university ha.s become increasingly popular since its inception three years
The art library was begun under
ihe initiative of Miss Anne Smith,
Head of thc Reference Department,
I'tom her acquaintance with a similar
institution at Lawrence College, Kansas.
The old periodical room now is the
ivw art reading room. As soon as
possible the shelves will be filled
with current art, architecture, dance,
deasign  and  applied  art  magazines.
The east wall of the old periodical
room has disappeared to make way
for the new library section on architecture, the re'eordl ibrary and the
collection of paintings of the art loan
In charge of the library is Miss
Doreen Fraser, who will be in attendance' from I) to 3 daily, to assist students and faculty in their cboiiv of

UBC's enterprising criminal

contemplate the folly of amassing more briefcases, wallets,

Samuel Bernard Watson, 26, ex-

of three wallets, a camera and an
electric razor and admitted theft of a
number   of other  objects.
Watson was sentenced Vo .three
months at Oakalla.

A Conference Pays Off
Dear fellow statical:
1 am an applied .science student of
Sc. 'lit' who has done much studying
in the field of Astrophysics ami
Ceology and see a crying need for n
complete revision of our ideas as to
how the Earth was made and t'o
get the Truth wo must look into
the   Heavens.
Look at thc Sun with its mass of
whirling clouds, at Saturn with its
system of annular rings and whirling clouds covering it's surface,
Likewise let us look at Jupiter and
Uranus with their cloudy bands
encircling their globes. Thi.s is giving us an object lesson about our
Earth itself and its past history.
When the elements of our earth
were in more heated agitated stale
thc Earth had swaddling bands of
clouds circulating about it. In these
annular rings and cloudy canopies
of space were to bc found the elements and compounds necessary to
form the crust of the earth in the
s', lielifying and cooling processes of
the developing crust'. This means
then that after the solid earth crust
bad been formed there was a time
when canopies of lighter matter like
clay dust and golel dusts and carbon
c!lists and water vapours and even
frozen ice- particles like cirrus cloud.;
floated aloft in the earth':; iilmos-
lien- we have a vi- ion of the e-arlb
crust under a sort of greenhou-e
roof gradually falling in polar regions to the surface. Gold flakes or
dust gold of Alaska fell during one
of the canopy declensions thus tbe
mysteiy of Alaskan gold is solved
nicely. Carbons wilh -ilicacenus and
carbonaceous mailer fell forming
heavier deposits in ancient iiortbcin
he-h water oceans and middle latti-
Itiele salty oceans forming the be-I-
of present oil fields. Then after a

Tucked away on the botiom shelf of a
every political campaign office from Victoria
to Halifax is a portfolio containing the suggestion that "educational opportunity .should
be equalized."
At every election it's dragged out, dusted
off, and thrown at the public with the promise that "something will be done alxjut it".
After the election it's packed away again and
It turned up again last week without any
political implications and thi.s time it won't
be forgotten so easily.
Dave Brousson, UBC delegate to the National Federation of University students, presented a resolution to the conference calling
for this educational equality and coupled
with it two concrete suggestions fur its im-
plimentation. It met with enthusiastic response from every delegate and a commission
was set up to prepare a brief to be presented
to the President's Conference next June.
This is thc first step in what may bo a
landmark in Canada's educational structure.
Under the British North American Act education was left in the hands ol' the provincial
governments. This has resulted in a lack of
educational facilities in the poorer provinces
and an abundance of them in provinces with
a sound financial structure,
With the end of the war and the influx
ul' veterans into Canadian colleges, a precedent was set by a federal grant to universities amounting lo $150 for each student
veteran. This wa.s in addition to the regular
foe and wits designed to enable the colleges
to expand their facilities to meet the increased
The second purl calls for the broadening
of the joint Dominion scholarship program.
Al present the program establishes a limited
number of .scholarships made available to
those students who show academic ability.
1 li'misstiii proposes thai more of these scholarships be made available to youth of every
economic group.
It has always been a democratic ideal that
a university education should bo possible for
every high s' hool student who ha.s the academic qualilicalions and while the resolution
i.s still far from thai goal il is a step that has
needed to be taken for a long time.
is n polar inhaling spiral system
balanced by an equatorial exhaling
pattern of fluid flow. This can be
called ;, Dipolar Vortex Eneriiv Unit.
Thc cause of rotation and the
maintenance of rotation of the Earth
about its axis i.s the existence of
this unseen Dipolar Vortex Ether-
Whirl Nucleus and extensive fluid
field effective far out beyond tho
orbit of the Moon which is itself
whirled around by this fluid ether
equatorial  wind field.
As far as thc effect of this philosophic study i.s concerned and its
importance to man we might study
t'he Coal-Oil Phenomena. If the
■aerial carbons all -came from rotating canopies and lading rings having declension at the polar regions
we might expect to find best oil and
coal .'.long the shores of ancient
polar seas and oceans before they
were thrust up by additional polar
ice caps and augmented waters from
the heavens. This i.s what we find
in Vhe end of thc Cretaceous Age
and beginning of thc Tertiary .when
canopies   from   the   skies   fell    and
killed off preceding life terribly and
additional ice anel water hinds
h'cLight on the continental mountain upllnusts known as our i.umii-
t; in ranges of today, This discovery of oil and coals alemg the Mackenzie River Valley system towards
the oil shales of the Arctic confirm
this theory of carbon and water
addition  to the earth's surface.
These ideas provide food for
thought for every thoughtful geologist and astrophysicist, We need
dynamic new ideas today. Wc tend
to stagnate and follow blindly in the
footsteps of so-called authorities in
various subjects. Young scientists
today have more facts and need to
have better theories to cover all thc
now known facts of World Phenomena. The Dipolar Vortex Theory
of Energy of Crust formation of the
Earth provide two such new and
dynamic ielcas which should bc
introduced into thc graduate work
of  till  scientific  schools.

Monopoly Inevitable
Free Enterprise
"The growth of monopolies is
inevitable and a definite advantage to our economy," Colin
Cameron, former CCF M.L.A.
told an overflow audience in
Arts 100 Wednesday.
Speaking on "Can Socialism Save
Democracy", he said that free enterprise is "an intellectual myth". Ninety-eight per cent' of Canadian people
;ire wage earners, while about 1,400
were employers, he pointed'Vit.
He defined democracy as the rights
f'f an individual to dignity and freedom, and went on to say that it was
ns recently as the depression that
this fact gained public recognition.
Answering a question from the
audience, Mr, Cameron said that there
is no restriction on monopolies in
Canada and that these monopolies
tend t'o act as a check on government
He said that the Scandinavian countries and Great Britain have evolved
thc most efficient political machinery
through their suspicion of authority
and their belief t'hat no human individual can be trusted with over-all
"The choice is not between east
anel west bul between those people
who would endorse totalitarianism in
tiny form and those who believed in
the sanctity of the individual."

Varsity's entry in the Pacific

the end of the month, for a
series in the Interior.
The Campus has received a bid to
lour the Okanagan for an exhibition
series in the near future. It is not
known whether or not it is official.
Although every effort will be made
to try to hold the series, the full
schedule of the Birds makes it almost
m impossibility, unless the league
executive will revise the schedule
again to meet this new situation,
If the exhibition series is played.
it is assured that' the tour would well
be worth the wear on the players.
The experience with strange teams
would prove a great value for the
coming play-offs.

UBC's high-flying hockey team has a chance to tie up the
leadership of the Pacific Coast Senior B league if they win the
two games on their schedule this week.
Currently in second place standing, 	
only four points behind the league-
leading Nanaimo Clippers, the Varsity
squad will be out to make good on

With last night's clash with the
Vancouver Indians under their belt,
they should have clear sailing from
now on.
Tonight's game with the lowly New

a walk-away for the Campus crew,
Coach Frank Fredrickson is confident of victory in this evening's game,
having all his players on hand again
except centre Freddy Andrews who
will be out of action for some time
with a cast on his hand.
The reason for the rwo games in as
many days is that the schedule ha?
been revised to allow Nanaimo to play
all their games on the Island, where
they are assured of a large turnout.
The Nanaimo squad claim that they
are losing money on their trips to the
mainland, so the League officials have
granted their request for the rest of
their games to be played on home

that there is not enough competition
in the league to suit them, have sche-

Snow Causes Postponement
Of English Rugby Classic
Vancouver, Canada's "Evergreen Playground," turned
white with shame and snow in recent weeks, with the result
that the scheduled McKechnie Cup games between Victoria
Crimson Tide and Vancouver Lions, and the Islanders and
our own 'Birds have been washed out, or rather, snowed under.
First stop  for   the  'Bird  hoopers  <j ■
in this season's play will be at LfltA ScOreS
Olympia, Washington, where the
Rangers of St, Martins College will
tangle with the 'Birds in thc first
g?.me for both clubs in the basketball loop of the newly formed Evergreen Conference.
The Birds, who have been spending long Hours o£ practise shooting
dulecl   two  exhibition  tilts  with   the  saw-off   i«  a  Boxing  Day  tilt.   The
Spokane Flyers, result  leaves  UBC   with  a  game  in
Consequently, the rugger moguls are ■ hand over each only one point behind
in the standings.
A fair indication of the strength of
the club is evidenced by the fact that
Laithwaite is holding back with
Doug Reid and Dave Storey, football
stars and mainstays on the rugger
team last year. With men like that as
spares, what must the first team be
like? Laithewaite thinks it's very
powerful and is confident of returning
the McKechnie Cup to its usual resting place in the UBC trophy room,
considering the supreme sacrifice of
transferring the' January 15 tilt between the Birds and the Tide to the
Island city, which at the present time
sep.ms to be enjoying California sunshine,
Already, though, the Birds have an
advantage in the schedule, with the
other   two   teams  battling   to  an   8-8
since lectures resumed al UBC, appear to be whipping into fair shape
under the watchful eye of head
coach of basketball Jack Pomfret.
Even though the Birds have had
a rather unimpressive record of
only two wins in .some 14 starts-, it
is thought by careful observers of
the Pomfrei'men in recent weeks
that they have shown some marked
improvement and will be ready for
anything that the EIC will have to
St. Martin's College appears to be
the big mystery entry in the Evergreen set-up thi.s year. About all
that is known of the U. S. school
is that it was about of equal calibre
tc UBC in the field of American
football, and provided the doormat
for  the Evergreen   loop  last   fall.
But as far as basketball is concerned, little if anything is known
about the Rangers. Virtually no information has been received at the
office of the Graduate Manayor
of Athletics at UBC concerning St,
Martins potential playing strength.
So the results of the Ranker-Bird
tussle may bc just about anything.
The Birds will be going into their
first attempt at actual play in the
Evergreen casaba set-up, with no
real information about their opponents. •; i

On the Hockey front, the UBC
Thunderbirds passed up their big
chance to tie the Pacific Coa.--t Senior
R league championship when they
bowed to the Vancouver Indians 8-6
Wednesday  at the Forum.
The main stumbling block for the
Varsity crow was thc fantastic playing of voterar/ Mel Neils'on who, as
well as directing the play from the
ice. drove home six goals for the
winners anrl  also caught  one assist.
