Spring Fashion Show
Hosts Glamour Beauties
Tani Campbell will be UBC's candidate in Glamor Magazine's International Contest to select the ten best dressed col-
leg girls in America.
FASHION SHOW
Tani was named at the annual
AWS Fashion Show which took
place yesterday at noon in Brock
Lounge.
The spring fashions featured
in the show ranged from sportswear to silk sheaths. Accentuated were checks and geometri-

of    outgoing    AMS    President
; Pefer TeekisOn.
Meekison said in an interview
; Tuesday that he is 100 percent
behind such a move. He added,
however, that the Students'
Council could not officially sanction any candidate, The-AMS
inust deal with the provincial
-government on a non-political
basis. i
Incoming President Dave Edgar concurred. "We shouldn't
quash the idea, nor should we
support it," he said. He felt
personally^ that such a move
woulcl be;'beneficial and would
help stiniulate student interest
in provincial politics.
; The proposal for having a student run in the Point Grey riding grew out of a series of soapbox speeches on campus. These
were originally sponsored by the
Student Christian Movement.
?. Whether any action will come
of the project is difficult to determine. Whether the group
formed by Alan Rimmer will actually produce a candidate is a
question only time can answer:
The proposal met with, a dfc
vided reception from Students'
Councillors.
Retiring USC Chairman Ross
Husdon said: "I don't think the
University should meddle in
politics."
, Incoming Vice-President John
Goodwin worried that such a
move would make the university
even more of a political football
than it is at present.
Outgoing Vice-President Pete
Haskins remarked that university representation would be a
good thing and stated that universities were at one time considered constituencies in Britain
aind had their own representatives.
New USC Chairman Chris
Davies noted that most students
live outside of Point Grey making the student vote much less
than the university enrollment.
Retiring Executive Member
John Madden agreed, saying
that the candidate would have
n<*j»ssibility of success and that
the whole thing would become
a farce.
Incoming AWS President,
Fran Charkow, on .the other
hand, felt that having, a student
candidate would be a "tTemei>
dots publicity gag."
cal or abstract prints, soft pastel
shades were predominant, with
stunning reds and pastel mauves
interjected.
The three-piece ensemble is a
popular item, on every girl's
wardrobe this year. A smart suit
in pastel checks of mauve, green
and bone white, complete witn
full-length coat was one hit—
another was a soft grey suit with
flared skirt and tailored top.
Without the jacket, this becomes
a lovely date dress for any
spring outing. The high waist,
white bodice, and sleeveless look
are fresh and cheerful for every
occasion.
The every-popular separates
were shown to peak effect. A
marvellous misted green wool
skirt was worn with a green
and white printed silk blouse.. A
casual outfit to delight, the. eye!
Another sunny spring outfit was
a lemon box-pleated skirt with
matching sweater. .."-...
The 'evening muted' mood
was shown in a gown of yellow
roses printed on white nylon
chiffon, two gorgeous coin-dot
silk shirtwaists, a blue costume,
and many other very 'voguey'
ensembles.
The AWS invited "The Al La
Croy Quartet" to entertain the
audience at intermission.
Men, the waist is back, the
hemline is up and a woman
looks like one now. The creations modeled today were pleasing to the eye ancLto the pocket-
book.
A Spring Bridal Party highlighted the show. Karen and
Lorna as bridesmaids, wore blue
and pink full and short dresses
and Tani looking as beautiful as
a spring bride, followed wearing
a white dress in the same style.
On this beautiful note commentator Sandra Shepherd ended this year's fashion show.
"Sun" Gifts

Painting Beyond Repair
-Police Follow Leads
One of the paintings that were
defaced Tuesday night is almost
certainly beyond repair, according to expert Dr. B.C. Binning.
The Shawl, by Jack Markwell,
which was thoroughly smeared
with red paint, will likely prove
impossible to hestore. Although
insurance will re-imburse the
AMS for the cost of the painting,
the picture, a favorite of many
Brock  habitues, is irreplacable.
The other painting, Tangled
Undergrowth, by Gordon Smith,
may possibly be repaired. The
process is difficult and costly.
The actual investigation is proceeding rapidly. The RCMP are
working on leads provided by
students.
A girl has reported ttjat she
saw five men fleeing from the
Brock Hall on the night of the
crime. She saw them leaving the
Brock through the fire door on
which the police found red paint
Wednesday morning.
, At present, the authorities are
tracking down leads which they
are not prepared to divulge. AMS
President   Peter   Meekison,  did
TANI CAMPBELL was
named at the "AWS Fashion
Show the best-dressed girl
on campus. She will be entered into the Glamor Magazine contest for the ten best-
dressed American college
girls.
COUNCIL   APPOINTMENTS
Applications fox appointed
positions on Students' Council are now being received.
Letters of application must
be in the _ hands of Students'
Council secretary Lynne Rogers by 2:30 Monday afternoon.
REWARD
A $100 reward will be
given for information leading
to the arrest and conviction
of the person or persons responsible for defacing the two
paintings in the Brock link
on Feb. 23.
The reward was authorised
by the Finance Committee of
the Students' Council. Wednesday.
Persons having pertinent
information are asked to contact President Peter Meekison at the AMS offices.
say, however, that he was hopeful that the culprits would be
apprehended in the near future.
Anyone who was in the Brock
Extension between 8:00 and closing time at 11:00 Tuesday night
should report any suspiciuons to
Meekison at the AMS offices. He
would especially like to know
if anyone observed any persons
in the College Shop area who did
not appear to be UBC students.
Students' Council will consider
preventative measures at their
next meeting. It is likely that
greater security precautions will
be taken for the Brock Extension.
Thursday morning, Dr. Samson, of the phychology department was called in to look at the
paint swirls on the College Shop
windows. He said that the red
smears were the typical finger
paint patterns of a drunk. The
lettering in white seems too intricate to have been dOne by a
drunk. This indicates that the
two were separate operations
performed  by different people..
Dr. Samson derived, also, that
the red paint was put on by an
individual about six feet tall and
right handed.

In many respects, this year's round of AIvTS Elections has
been a farce, a disgrace to this University.
The worst thing about them is that everybody tried hard.
That makes it hard to criticize the people in charge. They did
their best, but it was not good enough.
It was not a lack of effort that caused the mess.
Some groups tried very hard to make sure that they would
have a competent leader on Council in the '60-'61 term. They
went so far as to carefully groom a good man, or woman, for
the job, and to put them into office by acclamation.
This was an effort.
Another group did it's best too. Some councillors did try
to maintain their neutrality and interest others in running for
their positions. In some cases they were successful.
They made the effort.
And a third group was on the ball. The Erections Committee per fofmed it's duty as it saw fit to do. They had posters
printed up to notify the campus of the different slates. This
was an innovation. This was an effort. But it did not seem to
help. The turnout was still very low.
And that brings in the last group. The voters.
i       They can certainly be blamed in part.
They were apathetic. ■---<*
Of course, if the contest had been more interesting, if there
had been fewer acclamations arid more candidates, they may
have been aroused. But there were riot enough candidates, riot
a real issue.
So the voters can not be blairied for everything.
Part of the trouble comes with the rules.
I would like to ask the Elections Committee a few questions.
What are small rules for?
Are they set only to be followed if it is convenient for all
concerned, or should they be observed by everybody to whom
they apply?
Should they be discriminatory or universal?
You have set a fair riurrtoer of small rules.
You set them out in the three-page brochure you draw
up for the enlightenment arid, edification of prospective AMS
candidates this year. Most of these are advisory, but some are
stipulative.
The only punishment, however, which you can invoke for
candidates who disregard your stipulations, is that which defeats the purpose of the elections. It consists of barring that
candidate from running for the office.
This is pretty harsh on someone who, for instance, merely
fails to show up at the open meeting at which he is required
to speak. That he should speak is good. That he should present a platform of some sort to the voters is good. That he
should be removed from the slate for .failing to show up is
not good.
The only thing which you can do to correct this situation
is change most of your stipulations to recommendations. Instead of ordering candidates to come out and speak: advise
them, ask them, invite them to present a platform.
It may not be any more efficatious, but it will stop you
from looking like fools.
Remember, Elections Committee, when you draw up your
report and recommendations for the advice of next year's
officials, remember to recommend a lot less pomposity in
officialdom. Remember to tell your successors not to set out
rules .that they cannot enforce.
Reember to let them learn from the mistakes you made so
obviously this year. —n.A.
LETTERS  TO  THE   EDITOR
Delegates Square
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Recently the fourth Academic symposium was held at
Parksville. It differed in one
important respect from previous symposia. This difference
lay in the attitude of the delegates representing the student
body. At previous symposia a
nice balance was struck between formal discussions of
academic problems, informal
discussions over a wider range,
and less intellectual occupations. The program for the recent symposium shows that
this balance is preserved, in
terms of time allotments. However, qualitatively it was by
no means preserved. The formal discussions were carried
on in an atmosphere of complacent resignation. They were
regarded as rest periods in a
rather strenuous weekend,
during which no energy should
be expended. As a result, almost nothing of interest or originality arose from the discussions.' As was reported in
the Vancouver Sun, it was suggested at one panel discussion
that -what the university really
needed was a punting channel,
for relaxation and meditation.
The fact that no one was able
to decide whether this was in
fact a serious suggestion or not
is perhaps indicative of the
general tone of the weekend.
The problem is obviously
one of the quality of the delegates. It is possible to analyze
the students into three groups,
groups which are unfortunately representative of divisions
of the student body as a whole.
The first group can best be
characterized by the fact that
their general attitude towards
the weekend is one of disappointment. The second group,
the largest, consists of that amorphous mass of well-intentioned but uninformed people,
of the kind which the Faculty
of Education seems to produce
with distressing frequency,
who are dedicated to a view of
education which at worst is
wholly illusory and at best is
superficially conceived. This
group can be readily identified
by their high moral . tone,
which conceals an essential insincerity. The third group consists of the sort of people for
whom the Calendar for the
second terms reads:
January 22—Mardi Gras
Feb. 5—-Academic Symposium
Feb. 24—Song Fest . . . and so
on.
If it may be assumed that the
old model symposium is worth
saving, the primary remedy
obviously lies in the selection
of delegates, the responsibility
of the Symposium Committee.
Before making specific suggestions, it should be pointed out
that some of the Committee
(and the Student Council) may
have a vested interest in the
ned model symposium.
1. It is necessary that the
Academic Symposium be better publicized. The kind of student delegates best suited for
this gathering are frequently
not to be found in Brock Hall.
2. Size is not necessarily a
virtue. About 60% of the student delegates contributed almost nothing in rtfscussiong,
formal or informal.
3. A much more careful examination of the applications
received, with reference to
some publicity stated criterion
such as 'a genuine interest in
the university as primarily an
academic institution', is of
course the most vital reform.
Finally, it should be stated
that the foregoing represents a
personal opinion, but one
which is not by any means entirely   original  or  unique.
P. Coleman
Grad Studies I
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
One aspect of UBC life
which perhaps has not come to
the attention of the general
student body is the election of
the editor of the Ubyssey. This
matter has come to our attention recently and we believe
it deserves elucidation for the
benefit of this university and
the students .who compose  it.
The process by which one is
elected to this significant position in student affairs is one
which literally breathes intrigue, and is a far cry from
the democratic ideals to which
this institution attaches a measure   of  importance.
The basic principle of this
election seems to be one of
elimination . . . the individual
elected serves as a means by
which the electors can by-pass
One who does not meet with
their approval. The criteria
employed in this vascillating
shuffleboard of distorted opinion are those of personal rela
tions, outside the sphere of the
newspaper, and other aspects
of the individual's life . . . not
pertaining in any respect to
the qualities of leadership experience and initiative necessary for such a position.
Secondly, reporters, although talented and an integral part of the paper and assistant editors have absolutely
no say in who will inherit the
cozy cubicle next term.
Surely in a university such
as this a more democratic form
of election could be implemented. We hope some action
will be taken to facilitate this
much  needed  reform.
Yours truly,
Martin R. Robsin

PAGE THRE^
VIEWS  FROM FORT! Paper In Bed!
THE LAWYERS' TABLE
It has many times been observed that the behaviour of the
residents in the Fort Camp dining hall is both exemplary and
sophisticated. I feel it is my
duty to explain why this is so.
The mass of residents has nothing to be proud of as the entire
condition is due to a certain nucleus.
This nucleus resides in the
middle of the aforementioned
premises, and from this vantage
point civilized and cultured behaviour spread throughout the
building. The nucleus consists
of several well-behaved lawyers
(of course) and a complement of
well-trained Crofton House girls.
Throughout the year they have
striven, nay, fought, to bring
civilization to the "Hall of Heavenly Foods."
Attracted by this example of
better living, several engineers
(God help us!) and non-Crofton
girls (we will help them) have
surrounded the nucleus to absorb
its gracious influence, and wc
are justly proud of the improvement of behaviour of these timid
souls.
I further wish to observe that
there is no conceit in my family.

THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES

Inter-Faculty Debates
Decide Fate of Ubyssey
UBC needs the Ubyssey!
This conclusion was reached at the Legion Cup Inter-
Faculty Debate, "Resolved that no newspaper would be better
than the present campus newspaper" held on Thursday in
Bu. 104.
These four quarters tell the sad
story of an eternal triangle. The
first quarter is the happy one.
It concerns the base and the
flighty hypotenuse. But through
a naughty right angle which
never alters in her steadfast
north-pole love this hypotenuse
can't vary as she pleases, Naturally the right-angle is a blonde.
The hypotenuse feels the need
to drug and dull her sense. How
could she compete with a blonde,
especially when he is actually
holding her hand behind innocent hypotenose. The nerve! Oh
well, liquor triumphs in the end
and that is fine for the author
who works in the beer distillery
in the summer.
Song Fest
Champions
Alpha Delts
Alpha Delta Pi sorority and
Alpha Delta Phi fraternity
reigned over the Annual Greek
Letter Societies' Song Fest Wed-
nsday night.
The girls won with a rendition
of "Halls of Ivy." Noted for Honourable Mention were Kappa
Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa
Gamma.
Alpha Delta Pi sang two songs
—"Hail to Thee" and "Goodnight Ladies." Honourable Men-
lion went to Beta Theat Pi and
Phi Kappa Pi. Special praise was
given to Phi Gamma Delta for
the singing of their fraternity
song, "The Marching Fiji Men."
In connection with Song Fest
were the awards to the various
fraternities and sororities for the
past year's activities.
Alpha Delta Phi was awarded
the Housser Cup, symbolic of
the best all-round chapter. The
Athletic trophy was won by Beta
Theta Pi. Lamda Chi Alpha took
the scholarship trophy.
In the Sorority awards, Alpha
Gamma Delta  made    a     clean
sweep.  They won the Marjorie
Leeming Trophy, as the best all-
i round chapter, the Athletic Cup
| and the Scholarship Cup.
Mr.  Ifor   Roberts,   Song   Fest
Adjudicator, said that this year's
i choirs provided the best singing
; he had ever heard at Song Fest.
I He also praised    the. choice of
material, saying that in general,
it was excellent for a song fes-
| tival.
j Song Fest was held this year
| in the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
! A near-capacity crowd of
i around 2500 was in attendance..
Debaters for the affirmative
were Larry Rottenburg and
Brian O'Sullivan. representing
the Medical faculty, and Dave
Anderson and Rick Brown from
Zeta Psi fraternity, winners of
the Legion Cup.
The Zetes, speaking for the
negative, won the debate arguing that the Ubyssey performs a
vital function by keeping the
students informed on the latest
happenings in and around UBC.
Today, in Bu. 100, the two
Zetes will be meeting two of the
faculty (Professors Elliott and
Feltham) in the Student-Faculty
Debate.
The professors will have the
affirmative in the resolution;
"That the Professors learn more
from the students than the students learn from the Professors."
Back to Thursday's debate. Ih
reply to Mr. Rottenburg's state-
that "no one ever reads."
Mr. Rottenburg also feels that
the Ubyssey should allow the
students to present their views
before the student body, as well
as interpreting and reporting on
the latest academic and world
news for the general edification
of the students.

j Brian Marson, latest in a
series of soap box speakers on
campus says he "nevertouches-
em."
Marson has lauched a UBC
chapter of the Nevertouchem
Club.
Marson was inspired by the
Arnie Myers series on cigarette
addiction, and Barry Mathers
column, both in the Vancouver
Sun.
The Sun has been strongly advocating that the Government
set up clinics for people who
are addicted to tobacco and need
help to give it up.
This form of treatment has
been very successful in Sweden,
where the Arnie Myers story
originated.
Vartcouver-Burrard MLA Bert
Price told the Legislature  yes
terday it is recognized now that
tobacco is largely responsible for
lung cancer.
One of the reasons for the
continued controversy," he said,
"is that the tobacco people
put up so much for research. If
some university comes up with
an honest find that tobacco
causes lung cancer it might find
itself cut off from research
funds.
Price also contended that tobacco companies put filters in
cigarettes so that they can use
a lower grade tobacco.
The purpose of Marsons crusade is to reduce the social pressure on smokers.
This can be done by joining
the club and wearing Nevertouchem buttons, at the same
time enducing government action.

Post Office?
There was once a man, in a
city strange to him, who had a
parcel he wished to mail. Leaving his hotel, he began to walk
the street in search of a post
office. Being unsuccessful, he
stopped a passerby and queried
him thusly:
"Pardon me, sir, but could you
direct me to the nearest post
office?"
"The post office? Well, let's
see. If you go straight down her^
for two blocks, then turn to your
right . . . no, you run into a
park that way . . . now, if you
go north, this way, for three

LIFE CAN BE DUTIFUL
Jolly-Niehaus-Collins
A soap-opera for sophisticates was to be seen at the
Freddy Wood Theatre last
week, and the intricacies of
the plot were such that this review will begin with a rapid
outline for those who did not
or did see "the Dinosaur's Wedding": 'The scene opens on the
wedding morning of shy Fenn
Cornelius and lovely, naive
Amelia. We soon meet Fenn's
matchmaking mother, his
dress-making and delightfully
absent-minded relative, Kon-
stantin Ulanov, and Ulanov's
kleptomaniac son, Alexander.
But the wedding does not take
place! Rubin, a dark stranger,
arrives in the nick of time to
remind Fenn of a previous engagement. This is to the Countess Vespasia de Tothahn,
drawling, mysterious, and
slightly seedy. Meanwhile,
Amelia has decided Rubin is
her husband, until now presumed dead, whom she hasn't
seen in five years. Both Fenn
and Amelia hear the call of
duty. Musical chairs for two
acts, complicated by Alexander's amusing kleptomaniac activities, and, by the. final curtain, we find Amelia-engaged
to Rubin, who is not her husband, and the Countess engaged to Konstantin. Tableau."
Read this outline carefully,
catching all the names, and
you will find it doesn't sound
like very much at all. You
will be right. The first quarter
of an hour, when we meet the
characters, is amusing enough,
but the end is in sight long before the middle is reached, suspense disappears, and boredom
sets in. Certainly the theme—
that a man of honour is a sentimental fool, and that such
men are as extinct as the dinosaur—comes in for discussion,
but for far too much discussion; certainly, too, Dr. Soule,
the author, has larded his play
with  epigrams,  but  unfortun-

ately most of them are failed
epigrams. Against the success
of, "A moral (is) a message
for the unimaginative", and,
"Apologies are oil in the social
machinery", we must set "Attainability increases a woman's
charms", of which the reverse
is more often true, "When people are feeling sentimental,
they are not hungry", almost
always untrue, "(to Madame
Cornelius) vital statistics are
like batting averages", which
fails because it compares one
abstraction to another, and
"Identities and wives are like
raincoats and umbrellas—if
they're not claimed in thirty
days, they become public
property,   which   is   nonsense.
The second act suffers most
from over-discussion of the
theme, which, after all, was
more effectively dealt with by
Shaw in Arms and the Man
sixty years ago, and from a
surfeit of exposition; and the
actor who suffers most is Ian
Thorne. Mr. Thorne, who made
of Rubin an engagingly down-
at-heel major-domo, had the
unenviable job of appearing to
listen to first Amelia and then
Madame Constantin while they
waded through pages of exposition—which should be only
a few words spoken in gist. It
was inevitable that, if only to
keep awake, he should punctuate their speeches with "I
see's" delivered in the inimitable Thorne manner, and this
by obtruding his own personality, spoiled somewhat his
characterization.
Barbara Jay, Amelia, is a
very attractive girl, and it
would be easy to say that she
made a success of her part: but
has not George Jean Nathan
warned us against "confounding an aphrodisiacal actress
with a talented one"? Amelia's
role is fairly simple, calling
mainly for blushes, smiles, and
a few little tears, but Miss Jay

sometimes confused the simplest facial expressions; for instance, in the excessively coy
exchange concerning her virginity, she could be seen arching her eyebrows in a most un-
Amelian way.
Peter Howarth gave us far
too many facial expressions in
the part of Fenn. The boy may
be congenitally timid and extraordinarily nervous, but
there was no call for him to
twitch in that palsied fashion.
This was his only fault; an oxer
characterization.
John Sparks, meanwhile, did
not build sufficient a character for Alexander. "He got his
laughs, but then, Mr. Sparks
always* gets his laughs. We
would sooner have laughed at
Alexander. On his first appearance, he spent most of his time
smirking, when the script surely called for him to be deadpan if not downright sullen.
Rosemary Malkin, in her
first-act hat a Beatrice Lillie,
cooed and croaked in commanding fashion as Madame
Constantin. Her voice, her intonations, were just right; her
body, however, moved awkwardly at times, and she tended, when confiding in someone, as she frequently did, to
stand a yard away and bend
over sideways to whisper, instead of sidling her body closer
and remaining upright.
Hilda Thomas was another
with a good voice but a stiff
body. Certainly Gerthe is a
cook no longer supple with
youth, but; she could be bent
without being corrugated. On
the credit side, Mrs. Thomas's
voice tromboned marvellously
up and down the scale, and her
characterization fitted like a
sleeve.
The best till last: Sam
Payne, charming, elegant, convincing and apparently word-
perfect as Konstantin; and
Nonie Stewart languorous and
haughty as the Countess. Miss
Stewart could have been even
more outrageous in this part
and got away with it: "What?
The same world? Oh no—take
me back!" could have been bigger; and other lines were not
properly dealt with. But for
those of*us who saw her fey,
anaemic Asta at the Freddy
Wood last time out, this latest
creation was a startling revelation of this actress's range;
and a heartening one.

The local jazz scene has certainly been bustling with activity lately. Last Friday saw
a visit to the campus by Pete
Jolly; Jazz Society has been
presenting its "annual Jazz
Week; and this Sunday Lennie
Niehaus of Los Angeles will be
visiting our fair city.
Re Pete Jolly: The possibilities of this concert were limitless, but the results were
only fair. Why? It certainly
cannot be blamed on the ability of the musicians, which is
of course beyond question.
I think that one can specifically put the blame on technical factors. Namely the fact
that there was only one microphone which made it very difficult for people at the back
of the Lounge to hear the concert; also to poor acoustics of
the Brock Lounge, which are
as one musician describes
them, "lousy"; and finally, and
perhaps most important, the
antiquated piano that Mr. Jolly
was given to perform on,
which one cannot help but consider as an insult to a musician
of his calibre.
I am sure that all who saw
the concert will agree that
Freddy Schrieber, the bassist,
stole the show with his amazing technique and control.
Due praise must also be
given . to Vancouver's own
Gerry Fuller, who did an excellent job on drums, especially when one realizes that he
The direction, by the author
himself, was good, although
Dr. Soule could surely have
checked Mr. Howarth's facial
jerks and Mr. Spark's private
smirks. The single set was
sound, solid, and far too English; the Jessie Richardson
costumes apt and, in the case
of Miss Jay, Miss Stewart and
Mr. Thorne, inspired.
' A thought in closing: it is a
pity that such a uniformly competent cast and director can
not be brought together more
often, other than on radio, to
do plays not necessarily more
established than this one but
of more artistic and social
value, Experiments in the past
—Totem, Avon, Vanguard—
would indicate that even a
modified repetory theatre is
bound to fail financially, but
there seems to have been an

in Vancouver of late. What is

Sunday night at the Queen
Elizabeth Theatre, under the
sponsorship of the Vancouver
New Jazz Society.
Mr. Niehaus, who is one of
the leading exponents of West

look forward to an enjoyable
and exciting performance this
Sunday.
I would also like to remind

WONDERFUL TOWN
"Why, Oh Why, Oh Why-O,
Why Did We Ever Leave Ohio
. . . Maybe We Better Go
Home."
These plaintive lyrics are
sung by two young girls in
their bohemian basement
Greenwich Village apartment
who are bemoaning the fact >!%
that they ever left the security
of Columbus, Ohio for careers
in New York City. ,
The two girls, Ruth and !
Eileen Sherwood (played by
Diedre Woollett and Vicki
Sampson) are two of the principals in Mussoc's Spring Production of "Wonderful Town",
playing all this week in the
Audit.
How wonderful is it? It's
terrific! Never has there been
a show more ideally suited for
a university production.
The lively lyrics, witty dialogue and memorable tunes
were enjoyed as much by the
cast as by the enthusiastic audience appreciation.
Mussoc used great insight
when it selected Miss Woollett
for the starring role of Ruth,
who plays the role of the frus*
trated writer trying to hit the
"big time". She not only has
a skillful comic timing, but
she also displays a fine singing
voice, as evidenced in the comedy solo: "A sure, sure, way to
lose a man"-.
Others in the outstanding
cast include Vicki Sampson
(Eileen) who rapidly makes
friends with a fumbling soda,
jerk, (Ken Kramer), an amour-
ously-inclined newsman (Rick
Gower) and the entire New
York Police Force.
Ruth meets up with a handsome magazine editor (Jini
Olivier) who tells her to "Go
home, Go home", and a troop)
of conga-crazy Brazilian cadets, who won't leave her side
until she dances with them.

High School Conference
Featured This Weekend
Today marks the beginning of
the thirteenth Annual High
School Conference to be held on
campus at this University.
This years affair, with more
than 270 delegates from all over
the Yukon Territories, is the
largest so far. It will fill Friday
and Saturday with a busy schedule of sample lectures, talks, discussion groups, panel discussions,
basketball games, and social
activities.
The Conference is organized
and sponsored by the AMS and
the Staff of the University, with
the co-operation and assistance
of the Provincial Department of
Education.
It has received the personal
interest of President MacKenzie,
who, in a message concerning the
conference, states, "I hope that
those who seriously want to continue their education and who
are prepared to work hard and
long hours, will, through this
visit, be encouraged to come to
the University and so undertake
one of the most fruitful and stimulating experiences human beings can enjoy."
D r. MacKenzie's statement
also pointed that, "The whole
history of Man's spiritual evolution, the long story of his climb
from cave to council house, is the
result of his passing down the
accumulated wisdom and experience from one generation to the
next."
Of the delegates, he said,
"Their visit is shart of necessity,
but they do have an opportunity
to meet some members of the
Faculty and to learn something
about the varied and exciting
intellectual activities which go
on day by day at the university."
- J.F.K. English, Provincial Superintendent of Education, said
of the Conference, "The resulting
information and interest will no
doubt be carried back to their
respective schools by the delegates and relayed to their fellow
students."
Dean N. V. Scarfe commented,
"It is a revelation for many students to see how interesting
university classes and laboratories can be, how exciting the
myriad intellectual, social, and
athletic activities may prove,
how stimulating the contact
with such a variety of students
will be, and how easy it is to
meet some of the most distinguished professors in Canada."
Dr. English also said, "This
unique way of introducing the
university to high schools students is certainly praiseworthy."

CONCERNING SOMA AND SOCIALISM
By JOHN S. BUTTERFIELD
Perhaps    the    greatest    challenge   our society  has   to   face
today is that of Soma and Socialism.
• With the emergence of tran-
quilizing drugs in the late fifties the mythical Huxleyan cure-
all of the seventh century after
Ford. has become an alarming
reality. People are turning more
and more toward these drugs in
order to escape the responsibilities of day-to-day living, and as
the troubled individual has recourse to Soma, so does the nation seek comfort in Socialism.
"The'Socialist philosophy pure
and simple is nothing more than
misguided idealism. It conceives
a great levelling process dedicated to the abolition of income
inequalities, apparently designed, to provide the chronic non-
producer with the same rewards
as the entrepreneur whose creative efforts occupy fourteen to
sixteen hours of each day.
The beauty of this system
seems, to lie in the belief that
the ctironic n-p and the empire
builder will continue to labour
as diligently as ever within a
sphere    of    economic    equality.
What is more important, he who
is prepared to contribute little
or nothing to society will no
longer have to worry about it,
for, with the drop of a chain,
his needs will be attended to in
exactly the same manner as
those of a Rockefeller. This is
the type of reasoning which underlies all Socialist thinking to
a greater or lesser degree.
We on this continent have
placed too many eggs in the fiscal basket — happiness is too
closely and too exclusively identified with material affluence.
We see this in our advertising
and in our literature and at our
union bargaining tables. The
typical American has pretty well
been brainwashed to seek happiness in the pay envelope
rather than within himself. That
the envelope fails so consistently to contain the answer to his
problems is a state of affairs
that often finds momentary relief in various escape devices
such as alcoholic equanil and so
on—a sort of organic God—substitute. So in the same way is
the individual turning to Socialism as a tension reliever; that is
to say,  rather than resort to a
set of rules or values, however
derived, inside himself, for the
harmonious solution of some intangible discomfort, he tends to
tie his ills to the dollar and look
to the state as a universal panacea.
That such a situation as this
is becoming increasingly the
case, is only too evident in the
United States and Canada today. These two nations are much
more securely in the clutches of
Socialism than we care to recognize. When, in 1917, the
world's most radical Socialists
came to power in Moscow their
object was to create Russia as
a "Workers' Paradise"; nowhere
has' this aim been more fully
realized than here on the North
American Continent today—not
so much because the worker is
materially well-off, but because
I he has the last word—his values
' predominate, his wjll must ul-
j timately be catered to. We pay
j great lip-service to free enterprise and the incentives which
have made us economically
powerful, and then we examine
our income tax structure and
what do we see but those very
quasi-levelling forces which are

the bedfellows of Socialism. In
the United States if John Jacob
Astor and his .contemporaries
were alive today they would be
paying ninety-two percent of
their incomes to the state, the
highest personal-initiative-crippling-income-tax in the world.
If John Jacob were to incorporate he would find that over
half the profits earned by his
company were being paid directly to the government and being
spent with all the great inherent waste of time and labour
which one may reasonably associate with the civil service,
thus making the state, for profit
purposes, the majority shareholder in private enterprise. In
Canada J.J. would find the situation only slightly less absurd.
In either country he would be
readily able to extract the
quintessence of the welfare
state—the pension schemes, the
unemployment insurance, the
limited hours of work, the pegged wage levels, the diverse
housing schemes, and the social
jecurity programmes. He would
perhaps note that one out of
every five of his neighbours was
receiving regular cheques of
some kind from the government.
The John Jacob might take a
look at Russia, only to observe
that the state upon which all had
tended for so long to rely for
all, was showing remarkable
hospitality to the doctrine of incentive and inequality of income, and then John J. might
become deeply concerned that

are so preoccupied with getting
"something    for   nothing    from
each other."
Mind you.   it is only  reasonable that if one is offered something  for  nothing  and he feels
that   that something  will   solve
his  problems,  he   will  vote for
the  man who makes  the offer.
So it is then than Congressman
Jones  finds it  desirable to   run
around    paying    unemployment
insurance   and   building   inefficient   non-profit   television   networks with Vanderbilt's personal   ninety-two   percent   and his
corporate fifty-two percent. The
unfortunate thing is that as long
as Jones has the power and the
desire  to   offer  the   voters   the
benefits of somebody else's hard
work, and as long as those who
do the voting look to the state
for  spiritual solace we will  be
faced with  the  tremendous  economic   waste   attendant   upon
Socialism,   for   if   it   does   anything,  Socialism throws a huge
stumbling  block   into   the  harmonious   interaction   of   supply
and demand. It takes from the
corporations and individuals operating   in  highly   competitive
and efficient markets, the fruits
of   other   labours   and   deposits
! them with an indescribably in-
j efficient spending agency. That
j is,  incentive has attracted ability, ability has equated supply
I and demand as carefully as pos-
! sible and then the state has in-
i tervened to prevent skillful cap-
' italists from disposing of a good
: portion of their profits and in-
! stead has placed great quantities
j of  tax  money in  the   hands of
I those who, by vocation, are specifically   ill-equipped  to   spend
wisely. The funds are removed
from the control of DuFont and
delivered   to  a   mass   of   bored
bureaucrats for better direction.
We  must remember that  Socialism   is   supported  by   those
who feel they stand  to  benefit
most from it. and no  one feels
this more acutely than the man
who can't resolve his own personal difficulties and disappoint'
ments   as  they   arise and   who
seeks recourse to the state as a
crutch. He is the man who welcomes  the   blessings  of  mepro-
bamate, and he is the man who,
in his quest of ''more for less' is
likely to lose all,  not only for
himself but for his countrymen.

MAA is Meeting To
"Switch Sandwiches"
If the amendment to the
Men's Athletic Association Constitution serves its purpose,
MAA meetings will no longer
be a noonhour meeting of team
managers to "switch sandwiches".
MAA President Ian Stewart
told a meeting of managers this
week that an "executive" to be
elected from MAA would make
the organization more effective
and efficient.
The executive would be the
working nucleus of MAA. It
would meet weekly, in place
of MAA, but would be directly
responsible to MAA. The regular organization would meet
once or twice a month—as was
necessary.
Stewart told the meeting that
a strong executive would
strengthen the organization as
a whole. It would carry out policy, formulate policy and be
specifically responsible for projects such as the Athletic Brochures and Athletics Day.
Preliminary voting by MAA
gave approval to the amend-
i ment.
points per game, and this year
is leading the team in rebounding. Last season he was voted
to the Evergreen Conference
second all-star team.
GREAT COMPETITOR
Big o'5" Norris Martin, a
great competitor, is a veteran
of three years With the Birds.
Morris gets his Commerce degree this year. He is best on tip-
ins and hooks, and averaged 7.3
points per game last year.
Dumarsq has been a mainstay
in the Birds attack both last
year and this. Dave came back
with the team half way through
this season; and has been Jack
Pomfret's top reserve. Last year
Dave averaged 6:6 points per
game, and had a 37 per cent
shooting average from the floor.
MEET HUSKIES
The Birds meet the Huskies
tonight and Saturday at 8:30 at
the Memorial Gym. Vancouver
College will plajr another high
school in a preliminary at 7:00
p.m. Saturday. Friday's game
will be watched by almost 250
High School .- Conference delegates from all over the province.
Birds have already clinched the
WCIAU drown, and Saskatchewan is in last place.
The Birds have a 9-1 record
in the college league, and a 19-
14 over-all record.

To Championships
By DIETER URBAN
Three strong UBC teams are representing the "West Coast
University in WCIAU Championships at Winnipeg this weekr
end. They are curling, badminton and fencing.
Local curlers, who each have «	
eight years   experience   on ice,
are expecting a good meet.
Skip Jack Arnet, and third.
Bob Christie have been curling
together for over eight years
while second, Jack Lutes and
lead Terry Miller also have eight
years experience.
This UBC squad has recently
surprised everyone by placing
in the top five in the recent
Vancouver Totem Bonspeil. The.
Varsity group had been rated as
an underdog by other Vancouver
clubs.
Of course, competition at Winnipeg will be stiff to say the
least for most of the prairie
curlers are ex-high school
champs.
BADMINTON TOPS
The badminton team is also
of top-flight calibre. Making up
the men's team are Rolf Patterson, Keith Tolman, Les Trabert
and Gus Petrie.
Carol Ashby, Sid Shakespeare
I and Lynne McDougall compose
the women's squad.
Freshman Patterson is the current co:holder of the Canadian
Junior and Mixed Doubles titles
Tolman, also a first year student, currently holds the B.C.
Junior (under 18) singles title.
Patterson and Tolman will
play singles; and veterans Trabert and Petrie combine for the
doubles.
Co-hoTders of the Canadian
Mixed Junior title and B.C.
Junior Girls title, Carol Ashby,
is also a new member on the
UBC badminton team.
All three girls will be entered
in the singles with Ashby and
Shakespeare doubling up for the
dual effort.
