transfixed, completely unaware
of what was going on.
Central figures in this life

seven or eight wigs, which together with two grecian helmets will be adorning the heads
of the "Infernal Machine" cast
when the play opens Friday.
The wigs unaccountably disappeared from the dressing room
of the Player's Club and inexplicably appeared a few hours
later on the heads of three male

the play soon appeared in front
of the stands and snatched two
of the cheerleaders baldhead-
'Where did you get them?"
Miss Coghill demanded, slyly
intimating that she had a fair
idea   already.
Miss Coghill insisted that all
the wigs were not yet found
and that she would return. She
also stated that Dr. Roy Daniels, head of teh English Department was vitally interested in
the safe return of the wigs. The
English major began to roll his
eyes and mutter about graduating.

Your Choice . . .
The proposal that UBC enter the re-organized Western
Inter-provncial Athletic Union is one we would like to see
followed. We have reservations, however.
At six dollars per student, the plan is not cheap. Yet it
is probably worth it. Entry into the WIAU would give us
an athletic affiliation in lint with all our "other relationships
with Canadian unversities, such as the National Federation
of Canadian University Students and the Canadian University
Press. This would be a good thing for campus unity, and
might even ease athletic-cultural rivalry.
But six dollars would buy us a good many other things.
What about a Brock extension?
What about a swimming pool?
What about club facilities?
What about student housing?
Look the list over. There are probably some additions.
Are you prepared to give six dollars yearly to all these needs?
If not, which would you omit, and are your omissions of
less merit than WIAU entry?
You probably have as much nationalism as the next man.
But a Canadian athletic union has strong competition in the
quest for the student dollar.
Rights   And   Lefts
Two of the Vancouver's leading columnists have expressed identical sentiments that graphically point up a dangerous
state of mind prevalent on the Western side of the Iron
,Both Harold Weir and Elmore Philpott are admittedly
leary, as are many Canadians, of German re-armament.
Liberal Member of Parliament for Vancouver South, Mr.
Philpott, tells us that many of his fellow M.P.'s also have
mixed feelings on the subject. Yet Messrs. Weir and Philpott
and according to Mr. Philpott, many M.P.'s, are afraid to
express their feelings on the subject, too loudly because the
Communists are also opposed to German re-armament.
Yet Mr. Philpott loudly yells for more co-operation
with the Soviet Bloc. How does he, or anyone else, expect
a lessening of tension to come about it we have reached the
stage where we must automatically distrust everything the
Communists say.
If the Communists are right, and apparently many people
think they are, have we reached the stage where we must
say they are wrong simply because they are Communists?
If the Communists are always wrong and we are always
right where is there any room for compromise?
That the Communists may think they are always right
and we arc always wrong is no justification for such a state
of mind.  Two rights don't make a wrong.
Who's Blind?
People affected by the violent acts of the Sons of Freedom are entitled to as much justice as any other people.
And if any group has its civil liberties endangered, it is
thc radical Doukhobor sect.
Latest evidence of this is the threat of the Provincial
Government to .suspend driver's licenses of those Sons of
Freedom parents who fail to send their children to classes.
This actually seems more stupid than unjust.
We fail to see any connection between the Motor Vehicle
Act and the Public Schools Act. The Attorney-General may
as well start suspending marriage licenses for Labor Relations
Act violations.
This fumbling "got tough" policy puts the government in
a foolish light after the volume of criticism levelled at its
inept policy to date. The government might mind its eon-
fusion ended if it made a reasonable effort to follow the deliberated   recommendations of the  Doukhobor Commission.
How Chiang Kai Shek can see victory in an invasion of
the Chinese mainland when he can't see the flag on a British

My Dog Has
"Son," Granny said to me,
"Promise me you'll never tell
people about them Lemmings."
But Granny has been dead lo,
these seven years through a
surfeit of elderberry wine resulting in an advanced case of
Chirrosis of the liver, and snot-
nosed little brat that I am, I
am breaking a pledge made to
her on her deathbed. (I was
lukewarm about Germany ever
since she gave me a fourteen-
year subscription to the "Bumper Book for Boys Annual").
The Lemming is a creature
who lives in the far North
countree, but he never travels
alone. Indeed, a trip to the
corner store by a small Lemming family soon begins td resemble the exodus of the Dixie-
crats from the Democratic National Convention in 1948. For
some reason, the varmints like
to swarm across the frozen
tundra, uttering fierce cries of
"Eep, Eep!"
In fact, only recently a grizzled trapper, "Matsqui Bill"
Kapuskasing, wrote a letter to
Donald Gordon, head of the
CNR, complaining of the fact
that the Lemmings were keeping him awake nights with
fierce cries of "Eep, Eep!"
Well, what with running his
government - monopoly which
throttles competition and hampers free enterprise—which ls
the backbone — nay the life-
blood — our Canadian way of
life—which fulfills the fondest
hopes -of the founding fathers
of Confederation, and Mrs.
Gordon and the kiddies taking
up so much of his time, Mr.
Gordon passed the letter along
to the Mail-Order complaint
department at Eatons, who,
after due consideration mailed
a copy of their Summer catalogue for 1947 along to Mr.
Kapuskasing to read instead of
the "Bumper Book for Boys
But unfortunately, the catalogue was never delivered.
After passing safely through
the Toronto Post Office, it fell
into the hands of Rafe Nord-
strool, a mousy Post Office
clerk in Lemming Track, McKenzie Territories, who slyly
appropriated the catalogue to
give to his sweeteart, one
Annie-the-Seagull by name,
who was building an outhouse
at the time. As a result, poor
Mr. Kapuskasing went completely dotty on "Bumper
Books," mistook thc glowing,
potbellied stove in the corner
for Tom Swift's electric submarine, (the bumber book was
very strong on Tom Swift), and
leaped into it, crying, "They'll
never break the British square,
lads, into the breech !! !" But
we digress.
As we say, the lemming is
fond of travelling in packs,,
and uttering fierce cries of
"Eep, Eep!'' But there are
of lemming lore, which the
casual lemming scholar often
tends to ignore.
For instance did you know
that lemirjgs are fond of throwing themselves into the ocean
by the thousands, uttering glad
cries of, "Eep, Eep!" Indeed,
historians have recently discovered that Henry Hundson. in
searching for the Northwest
Passage, was tsymied in his
quest by a horde of wily lemmings. Poor Henry had been
sailing his ship for months,
without sighting so much as a
lichen or a scrap of land in
the barren arctic solitudes
whose perils lie  was essaying.
Suddenly, the ship came
upon a horde of Hie dirty little
creatures, swimming in the
water, so thick that they presented the appearance of dry
land. Uttering glad cries, the
crew dashed from the ship, and
onto the backs of the lemmings,
who offered no support whatever, with the result that the
entire crew promptly perished.
King Charles is said to have
been   fit  to  be   tied.
But if you really want to
know all about lemmings, why
not drop into the library some
afternoon and read up on the
subject. They have lots of
books over there.
Cultural   Foundation

Foster   A
In Europe
(Law Graduate of Hamburg University, Dietrich
Ramschuing is at present studying Economics on a WUSC
scholarship as a third-year
Arts student «n UBC. The 24-
year-old scholar wrote the
following article on Colleges
of Europe.)
The foundation of a new
Europe is not only a task for
governments; it requires a common European feeling among
the people and an understanding of their common problems.
In this field the so-called European-Colleges take their,.hare.
These insttiutions are found
in Bruette (Belgium), Nancy,
Saarbruecken and Turin. And
with the beginning of the summer term, another will be opened at Hamburg,
these  colleges are:  the  teach-
The task and approach of
ing of the historical, cultural,
economic and sociological connections and interrelations in
Europe, and the further development of knowledge about the
common destiny of the European nations and their special
To be able to deal with these
questions, a student must have
a certain maturity and a good
academic background. Accordingly, only graduates of universities can enrol.
In addition to this, a special
selection makes sure that the
colleges have, if possible, students from all European countries. This selection is most important for the colleges where
the students are living together.
The attempts to install effective self-government, the relations among the students and
between them and the professors, and the discussion of dangerously controversial political
topics must be newly planned
separately for each course.
For this reason, there are
only 40 to 80 students at each
college. In Bruegge and Saarbruecken, the courses last for
nine months; in Nancy and Turin, they last for only six to
eight weeks.
The methods of studying are
similar to those of universities:
there are lectures, seminars,
and labs. The curriculum is not
Ihe same in all places and the
period of experimentation is
still continuing. The main emphasis is, however, on history,
economics, politics, law and sociology. Diplomas are given
after two years of study.
The high level of the curriculum naturally causes some
financial difficulties. The insti-

tutes are not wealthy enough
to employ many professors.
Saarbruecken and Bruegge
have two chairs each; all other
lecturers came as guests. To
help fill this gap, an "old team"
of foreign lecturers are developing at the colleges. Part of
the work is done by assistants
and tutors who fulfill the organizational requirements.
The education Is rounded out
by trips, either to the authorities of integration, such as the
European Council in Strass-
burg, or the High Authority of
the Montan Union at Luxemburg, or into very interesting
European districts like Corsica
or the Ruhr.
With this type of teaching
the research branch could not
hold pace until now. It is recognized that only interplay between teaching and research
can carry the work of these colleges further.
The fact that these institutions have to refuse a great
number of qualified applicants
because of lack of space, indicates that among European
students there is a feeling of
responsibility for Europe as a

Mussoc to Strike
Oil In Auditorium
UPC's Musical Society announced Thursday it plans to
present, as its 1955 production, an all-Canadian musical entitled Bonanza!
Rehearsals are already in progress for the Alberta oil drama,
which is scheduled for the evenings of February 14 and 16 in
the auditorium. '
The story involves a family
on a farm near Edmonton who
strike oil on the back forty,
make for the big city (presumably Edmonton) for a spending
spree, and discover that the
bonanza is a fizzle after all.
The musical stars, Vivian Sa-
biston, Mervin Watson, and
Doug Bell, plus a chorus of
thirty. Musical director is Harry
Pryce, Dramatic director is
Peter Mannering.
Said Mussoc President Jerry
LeCovin, "we hope to make this
year's production bigger and
better than last year's "Red
Mill". We've got a large, enthusiastic cast, and a lot of talented newcomers."

Artists   Gain
By  Mayors
TORONTO-(CUP) - Thousands
of students at the University of
Toronto have developed a sudden
.interest in art as a result of a
fight between Toronto mayor
Nathan Phillips and the Art Department over the merits" of
three nude paintnigs currently
on exhibit at the  university.
Thc mayor denounced the
paintings as "objectionable" and
"obscene," allegedly ordering the
three paintings to be taken
The Art Committee did not
agree with him, however, and
decided that the pictures would
remain on display, resulting in
the sky-rocketing of attendance
to twelve times the usual number.
Artists Graham Coughtry and
Mike Snow of course defended
their work.
"I regard the human figure
as the most significant nucleus
for a painting," said Coughtry,
"I am interested in the relationship of the human being to his
exterior surroundings. It is really
an attempt to reach the basic
situation of person to^ room."

31 will be reached.
Dr. Grant of the College said
the Board is hoping to raise
$650,000; $400,000 from the
churches, to be collected over
the next three years, and $250,-
000 from private sources.
The main part of the money
will be used for building. They
«.re undecided as to the exact
construction, but some extension
to the over-crowded library is
planned. If possible, the Board
would like to add an entire new
wing to the College.
A residence for married students and a house for the principal may also be constructed.
New books for the library,
scholarships and student aid,
faculty salaries and just keeping
the college budget in the black
will soak up any surplus funds.

Under-Bull-Dogs  Gallop  To Victory
Outlined against a blue-grey January sky, the Four Fillies
pranced again. In dramatic lore they may be the sisters Famine,
Pestilence, Destruction and Death. These are only aliases. Their
real names are Trafford, Wright, Donnelly and Jagger.
They formed the crest of the Gamma Phi cyclone before

peered down on the bewildering panorama spread on the green

UBC 3 - Vancouver 3
Close to 300 spectators, at

students, thrilled at the forum
Wednesday night when Vancouver held UBC's hockey
Thunderbirds \o a 3-3 dr^w.
Vancouver Jumped to a 1-0
lead early in the iirst • period,
but an effective passing attack
by Birds' number one line
deadlocked the count 1-1; Hugh
McCulloch scored from Cunningham and Mundle. Burly de-
defencemen Bob Gilhooley scored later to give UBC a 2-1 lead
at the end of the first period.
In the first minute of the second stanza, Mo Cunningham
broke into the clear on right
wing and 'dumped a short pass
to Gord Mundle, who slipped the
puck under the Vancouver
goalie. UBC led 3-1. Smart of
Vancouver rallied his team back
into contention by scoring twice
to make it 3-3 at the period's
The third frame saw n& scoring, with both goalies holding
well. By virtue of the tie UBC
earned its first point of league
competition, but not its last if
they continue such stellar playing as evidenced in their last
two games.
The Mundle - McCulloch - Cunningham line is UBC's really
potent scoring threat. They anticipate each other well, and are
more likely to convert a rush
into a goal better than are the
other  combinations.
Defensively Varsity was weak.
From their own blue-line back
they are almost as unpredictable
as qualified psychologists, and
goalie Thomas wisely suspects
their every move.

off, while Al Pollard of the B.C. Lions announced the vital statistics over the PA system and scouted the field for Annis Stukus.
Play juggled during the first quarter, the golden-blue Gamma
cyclone would not be denied.
Janie Wright, a 127 lb. Gamma halfback, snorted and snaked
her way to an unconverted touchdown. The stands went wild, as
imported cheerleaders contorted their mobile physiques in frantic emotion.
,A cyclone cannot be snared, but one can go around it. Colleen
Kelly of Alpha Delts did just that. She ran, she passed, she scored.
You name it; Colleen did it. Oh the last play before half time
she skirted the left end and dipsy-doodled to a 6 point TD. Half
time and 6 all.
Thie Pubster's Hoosier band rollicked the TV and "live" audience while Donna Jabour and Elsa Ezzy reverted to type and
jiggled and wiggled to the noise.
The Gamma Bulldogs kicked off to the Delta Terrors in the
second half. Gamma soon won back the ball, and the cyclone was
unleashed again. Janie Wright swivel-hipped to the Delta three,
and a galloping Helen Donnelly dove over to score—12-6.
In the final quarter THE Wright made it 18-6 by carrying a
swarm of Alpha Delts over their line. She was a hurricane within
the cyclone.
For the Delts it was Kelly, and she all but thwarted the Gammas. She, and the pass-catching Diane Driscoll.
It was quite a day.
The Psi Upsilon fraternity, who originated the idea of the
game, presented the "Powder Trophy" to winning Gamma's captain, Bev Kemp. Ken O'Shea and Glen McLennan made the presentation while newsreel cameras recorded the feat.
To the triumphant coach, the nail-chewing, near-ulcerated
Jack Hutchinson, must gotiouquets. To the losing mentors, Rajah
Kronquist and Donny Spence, goes credit for a fighting Delta
team. To them all go thanks for an historic day.

Fitba Birds Out
For Second Win
Sporting their new-found scoring punch in the forward
line, Varsity take on Halecos this Sunday at Trimble Park in a
game in which Varsity will be gunning for their second win in
a row.
Chiefs   face   Sunset    on    the*1 —
campus, also on  Sunday.
The varsity forward wall
showed well in dumping Collingwood last week, 3 to 1, and with
any luck should repeat over
Halecos. Bruce Ashdown, Som-
erled Macdonald, and Stan Glasgow will be out to repeat their
last week performance.
Halecos, who carry several
former New Westminster Royals,
in the person of Jackie Whent
and Neil McEachnie, are expected to provide a good game.
Scoring punch has been Varsity's bug-a-boo all season long,
and only in recent weeks have
they been able to puncture the
enemy defense and score heavily.
Closest competition to Varsity
this year, should be highly powered Pilseners, who, with plenty
of scoring punch, have been
