Speaker Advocates
Recreation Centre
"Vancouver should have arecreation centre for the transients who live in cheerless rooms downtown," Mrs. Laura
Jamieson, Vancouver CCF alderman, told a meeting of the CCF
Club at noon yesterday.
"People who spend a short time ? • —
ln   town,   Ike  loggers  and   fisher
meft, should have a place where
they can find good, wholesome entertainment Instead of being forced to go to phoney dives where they
are fleeced and then thrown out."
In her address she stressed the
the necessity of civic ownership of
all public services In the city. At
present, she stated, only those
services which are operating at a
loss are run by the city. Profitable
enterprises should be handled by
the city, and the profits put Into
Increased services instead of going
into general revenue.
Mrs. Jamieson advocated extending the  vote to all adult  citizens.
"The only reason the non-partisans get elected,'' she explained.'
"Is because they represent the property-owing class. These people
are afraid that election of the CCF
would endanger their property
Mrs, Jamieson also advocated
more non-coniniercial sport and entertainment under existing laws,
and deplored the unnecceasary fuss
tho city was wus making over Ihe
Open Sunday plebiscite.
Liberals Take Over

UBC Liberals will take over the
Mock Parliament tonight to complete the round of Canadian political parties who have had an opportunity to voice their views ln
the annual political debates.
The campus grits will Introduce
a hill to legalize the sale and distribution of liquor in the province
of British Columbia. Vaughan
Lyon, as prime minister, will Introduce' the bill.
Special legislation will be proposed to allow cocktail bars to operate on the University Endowment Lands and a further clause
will legalize the sale of liquor in
drug  and  grocery stores.

Wednesday, however, Armour officially made application to AMS
president Nonie Donaldson to attend the conference. Miss Donaldson indicated approval would be
given Armour's request at the next
council meeting.
Dr. S. N. F. Ohant, dean of the

In 1951
Increased spending to promote student activity in 1951
was forecast Wednesday by
AMS treasurer John McKinnon, who voiced # satisfaction
with the way certain free-
spending campus groups have
julled in their horns.
McKinnon warned students Nov-
amber 17 the Alma Mater Society
son Id easily face another "financial
iasco" similar to the 1047-48 6ne.
unless some campus groups pulled
in their horns and ceased being:
'Intoxicated with the idea that aus
terity is finished."
McKinnon, at that time, pointed
-Hit that by October 31 of 1949, the
AMS had spent 11,282.27 of its Income from student fees of $74,00.".
Up to the same point this year, ho
said, the society has spent $9,696.95,
out of a total Income of $62,000.
"In the past few weeks all clubs
who have been spending freely have
had to obtain permission for ex
pendltures from the society," McKinnon said. 'This method has been
working very well,'' he commented.
The treasurer said he expected
the situation' to look better at
the end of the month when AMS
hooks are audited.
When questioned regarding the
free spending of some campus
groups, McKinnon said their enthusiasm was attributable to several factors.
"Some organization are spending money accumulating capital
equipment for their operations this
year and In the future," the treasurer said. And some of this equipment is costing them more Ihau
they anticipated."
"Other groups," he said, "just
haven't been watching their balances and how they stand. Outflow
'go-slow' policy is designed to cut
down expenditures and approve
them only when we have the full
details regarding their purpose.''
He continued, "At present we are
not looking for ways to spend
money. We're not looking for conferences to send students to and
thus cut deeply Into our reserves.'*
The treasurer definitely stated
that there will be no supplementary
budgets granted until late in January when full stock has been taken
of the society's monetary position.
He sounded a note of hope fnr
future Increased student activity.
"If we slow down now we will be
able to do more things next year in
the form of Improvements around

Slim Student Council majority
refused a request made at the
regular Monday night session to
allow outside news reporters to
sit. In on council meetings.
Request was made to council by
two reporters of downtown Vancouver newspapers, Hal Tennant
and Iris Sanderson, both undergraduates at UBC.
Majority of council felt the present setup of distributing' news to
campus correspondents, was adequate and the new move would
only leave Hie student body open
to harmful publfeity In the downtown press.
Vote on the matter was close,
;i majority of one deciding the issue.
Junior member Ivan Feltham
moved   the   outside   press   not   be
allowed to sit in at council sessions, opening the hour long discussion on the subject.
Both Tennant and Miss Sanderson urged the defent of the motion
on the grounds that more accurate news could be reported about
the workings of the society if they
had  first  hand  Information.
By the present setup, public relations officer Charlie Marshall
holds a press conference every
Tuesday morning to issue statements to the press.
Tennant termed this setup "Inadequate" since reporters are only
getting an Interpretation of the
feelings of Council and they can
only procure "threads of a story,"
which leads to inaccuracy.
Tennant   said   better   public   re
lations would be established
through the -press because the reporters would know all the background material behind each council decision and would know the
entire feeling of council.
Opposite view was upheld by
PRO Marshall who said thai every
Insignificant remark ln council
would he "pounced upon" hy the
press ami lead to poor public relations.
He claimed, "Councillors would
be afraid lo open their mouths and
say what they thought for fear
of having Iheir remarks smeared
throughout the Vancouver papers."
First vote resulted in a tie with
Ed Pederson and Jo-Anne Strutt
abstaining but on reconsideration
Miss Strutt cast her vote in favor
of  l>*eltham's  motion.

The Brass Emotes Again
Letters To The Editor
"You have nothing to lose. Join one of
your university contingents now. This is the
time to join—not after the bombs have started to fall."
The above rather stupid quotation Is
taken from a letter directed to UBC
students by the campus armed forces contingents test week.
The implication, of course, is that war
is virtually inevitable and students had jolly
well better get in the foroes now before they
a*e bludgeoned in. Students whose interests,
one may fairly presume, are directed toward
a peaceful world have every right lo resent
the implication. And we doubt very much
whether this emotive appeal from our local
bWisi Rats will influence anyone.
But the bold assumption contained ii.
the opening sentence is probably far more
dangerous than the implication about the inevitability of war.
"You have nothing to lose!"
Well, just what have you to lose? In the
first place it would appear that anyone joining our military forces now is committing
h.mself to any war in which the (nation may
become involved. Whatever onefe ethiual
standard, war raises vast problems. When it
comes to taking human life, we would presume that the decision is sufficiently momentous to demand that the choioe be made en
the basis of all the relevant circumstances.
The man who commits himself In advance
to just "any war" has placed himself in the
position .of a hired assassin. If the war happens to coincide in its aims with the individual's ethical code, then all well and good.
But if it doesn't, he is still committed to do
the job.
The only justification for such a stand
is an avowed belief in the supremacy of the
state. If the decisions of the state, no matter
how grave the situation, are to be taken as
necessarily valid, then the individual may
reasonably choose to join its armed forces in
advance of any hostility. If not, then he must
regard himself, as we have said, as a mere
hired assassin.
'The Ubyssey would not go so far as to
say that the philosophy of the supremacy oi
the state—particularly In the threat of war-
is false. We would merely ask that the student
realize the choioe ht has made.
In another sphere, the student must-bear
in mind the inherent conflict between the
philosophy essential to an officer in our armed forces and the philosophy which underlies
our university education By joining the forces
he has forced himself to wrestle with this:
very real conflict and he must realize that
both his freedom as a student and his efficiency as an officer will suffer by the combination.
Proof By Nose Count
! We note with Interest the intriguing remark from one of our bright young campus
(Christians in the letters to the editor column
(hat "in 1910 a survey showed that only 10
percent of university professors beUeved in
God. A survey a year ago showed that 85
percent now believe in God."
It is rather unfortunate that the student
forgot to tell what sort of God these learned
gentlemen profess to believe in in such large
numbers. We have a sneaking suspicion that
the sort of God in which our letter writer believes is probably a bit different from that in
which most professor profess to believe. But
our sleuths have not yet been able to discover
the survey, and we are left in the dark.
Put, despite this, we still find the information intriguing. Most delightful part about
it is the thought the existence of God may
now be proved simply by counting, noses.
(Well-shaped Roman-type noses, maybe, but
still noses.)
Poor Thomas Aquinas! If only he had
known! Think now how much labor he might
have saved himself! (Baruch Spinoza, too,
might have saved himself a lot of time and
Robert Ingersol could have lived a quiet respectable life).
In any case, our theologians will be nble
to relax from here on in. In fact, they'll be
largely non-productive. Think any of 'em
could dig a good ditch?
And AU That
by Lit Armour
y Elsewhere on this page, The Ubyssey has
flayed the campus militarists for their highly
emotional attempts to confuse students over
the issues involved in joining the nation's
armed forces.
Early in the term, The Ubyssey carried
an ad from the university COTC reading
1914, 1939, 19? and its editors, quite rightly
questioned the COTC attempt to bamboozle
students into believing that a third world war
is inevitable.
It is readily understandable that the man-
in-the-street (whoever he is) can fairly be expected to be highly confused. It seems a bit
strange that our "brave Russian allies" of
1945 should have become the "the dark force
of totalitarianism" in 1950. We still have not
yet got accustomed to the fact that Chiang
Kai Shek was "a noble statesman" in 1945, a
"a bungling petty dictator" in 1949 and now,
seemingly, is about to become "an able statesman fighting against the forces of red totalitarianism" in 1950. And we wonder whether
pr not we are going to be forced to believe
that the Chicago Tribune and Lord Halifax
were right all the time and Francisco Franco
;has always been a "fine Christian gentleman."
It was with no high glee that we noted
the editorial writers in the North American
press smugly commenting on George Orwell's
"1984" by pointing out that "obviously what
Mr. Orwell was referring to was the consequences of Communism."
Now we don't deny that Stalinism has
perpetrated a series of playful policy switches
which match any that have been dreamed
up on this continent. But our knowledge
of Soviet manipulation is restricted to the
occasional copy of a translated Izvestia which
comes our way and, after all, we don't happen
to live in Russia.
But we do know, at first hand, what is
happening here.
And we are a bit afraid that Mr. Orwell's
predictions are coming true all too fast. Orwell's "Oceania", the reader will recall, was.
sometimes at war with "Eurasia* and sometimes with "Eastasia" and the one was always
"our glorious ally" while the other was the
"dark force of totalitarianism"—and everybody promptly forgot that they had ever beer
the other way around whenever a policy
switch occurred.
And the confusion was continued into all
phases of life. Hie present attempt to confuse students into believing that they can reasonably be officers in our armed forces and
university students at one and the same time
is a sterling example of Mr. Orwell's "doublethink."
If there were to be another war, the process of organized confusion would doubtless—
perhaps of necessity—be speeded up to the
point where the society we set out defend
will no longer exist—if, indeed it ever did
exist! At least, at present, we can dream of
a more perfect society and we may, perhaps,
even be able to do something about bringing
it into being.
But another war would reduce the potential to the impossible.
The question becomes, then, whether any
individual can be made to feel morally obligated to participate in such a war. If the war
must destroy what it was alleged to preserve,
then any obligation is a manifest absurdity.
If society is no longer a feasible tool for
the production of values then the individual
becomes a free agent. His bonds are loosened.
He may decide to fight. But only because
it will give him more personal satisfaction
than not to fight.
Frankly, this column will stick its neok
far into the loop and declare here and now
that we will not fight such a war. We would
much rather bask refleetivS^itf^vison.
Editor, Ths Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The Varsity Christian Fellowship showed poor taste In sponsoring the showing of the film
"Hope for China." The hope for
China, by the way, Is supposed to
be Christianity. The film Is a lump
of propaganda, and an Insult to
Chinese scholars of the past and
to Buddhism and Confucianism.
"Hope for China," 1b a film that
proves to us that there are still too
many people who believe that
Christians are the only people
chosen for redemption, aU Ahe non-
believers being heathens (the word
heathen having a degrading and
contemptuous connotation.)
There is no doubt, of course,
that the more primitive peoples
of China have a very primitive religion, but it is more effective than
any of the great faiths because
these tribes have as yet not been
touched by other drastic cultural
changes, and nan therefore believe
blindly in their religion. There is
also no doubt that Confucianism
and Buddhism are at odds with changes brought about in man's scientific knowledge, but so Is Christianity. There is therefore no reason why Christianity Is the hope
for China. The hope for China is a
reform movement that will bring
Buddhism (Christianity, Taoism or
whatever religion the Chinese care
to accept) out of conflict with
science by devoting itself only to
problems which cannot be solved
by realistic measures.
In conclusion, I wish the VCF*
tbe best of luck in their mediaeval

Polio on Rampage
In Alaska; Closes
Schools, College
FAIRBANKS, Alaska—The num.
ber of polio cases In Fairbanks and
vicinity is reaching epidemic proportions, it was reported recently
in Polar Star. U. of Alaska's campus publication. The municipal
schools of the city of Fairbanks
have been closed and the university has put on what is termed "u
restricted   operational   status."
Restricted operational status
means that classes will be held as
usual hut all non-essential activities will lie banned. Students have
been cautioned to pay strict attention to personal health, and report all colds nnd minor Illnesses
to university health authorities.
Careful consideration was given
to closing the university, but as It
is believed that contact is the principal means of spreading polio,
closing the university would merely aggravate matters by sending
home stude/its who may be already Infected, or sending them
through infected areas.

resentatives of the Publications
Board who appeared before council two weeks ago to protest the
annual which would publicize engineering- graduates and their activities.
"The engineers' annual Is not an
opposition publication' to the Totem," the president said. She also
announced that a publicity campaign will be Instituted soon to
boost Totem sales.
A spokesman for the engineers'
yearbook said the annual ls designed to publicize the faculty of
applied science and the university.
"We do not intend," herald, "timt
It should in ahy way conflict with
the sales or scope of the Totem."
He also pointed out that the proposed annual would allow engineers some measure of creative
achievement.      '
"In a faculty-such as ours," he
■aid, "we to not have much chance
to indulge In our flair for creative
art and we felt that this is a real
opportunity to do something-along
these lines."
."Mere than any other faculty,
engineers are forced,to place their
graduates in tbe east," Miss Donaldson aald. "Here in British Columbia, engineers are faced with
a topographical disadvantage that
makes a project of this sort essential."
'the proposed annual will contain 76 pages and will be devoted
to showing the activities of individual clubs contained within the
faculty. There are 16 separate
clubs in the 12 sections of the faculty at present.
The editors will not employ individual pictures but will take one
composite shot of each department
of the faculty for publication.
"We do not think it is the function of the Totem to do this sort
of detail work," the spokesman
said. "We are not proposing oppo-
sales of the Totem," Miss Donald-
"We hope that a defeatist atti-
sitlon to the Totem but a supple-
tude will not be taken towards
son said. "By means of publicity
and other methods we hope to
sell more Totems this year than
ever before."
Treasurer John McKinnon will
contact university book store and
downtown department stores requesting they take orders for the
1951 edition of the Totem.

It was the first time the experienced Washngton crew had been
beaten. A visit to the American
university saw UBC- lose three

a few leftovers, but none of the
team members play the hoop game.
Washington will return In the
spring for another series of games.
This }s only the second year In
which   this  university   has   parti
cipated in lirter-Colleglate volleyball. Next season, group will be

In order of serve, they are: Doug
Bell, Doug Angel, Don Teaporten,
Bill Walker, Pete Walker, Ian Mair,
Don Larsen, Dave Ostrosser, Gordon Selman and Ray Fee.
"The possibility of a league Is
very good," said Dick Penn, director of Intramurals. Such a league
would Include YMCA teams from
Vancouver, New Westminster and
Bellingham. UBC apd the local
Firemen would complete the roster.

an organized league just three
years ago.
Previous to that time ho played
on outdoor courts without any
real coaching.
Ron performed '/or the Britannia Senior squad ln his second
and third years at high school,
and both times they won the Vancouver and District title. Team
was not allowed to proceed to
the Provincial finals because many
of the players were also with commercial teams.
YMCA inter B squad also had a
spot for him, and in the 1948-49
season they advanced as far as
the city seml-finulH.
Last year, with the YMCA in
the Inter A loop, he won most
valuable player award, but the
YMCA squad were beaten out In
the semi-finals by UBC Braves ln
an. overtime game.
When questioned about the Ostrom Plan, Ron said, "1 .think it's

form of athletic assistance because, "I think we would get some
