 Council Trembles; Pub Trains For Battle Today
By DON STAINSBY
• LONG-smouldering hatred of
the Pub for Council has finally come to a head. The Dirty Nine
has accepted the Pub's ultimatum
to appear upon the field of dishonor at 12:30 today. The field is
the floor of the gymnasium. A
basketball game will be held.
The gory battle will take place
with the traditional intent on both
sides of slaughtering the other.
These annual fracas are tne reason for the Dirty Nine's only numbering   nine—the   Pub   massacres
any excess each year.
COUNCIL WILL PAY
This game, an ISS week feature,
will probably give the gymnasium floor is annual reflnishlng
—a blood red. Come one and all,
and watch Pub make Council pay
for its outrageous die turns
throughout the year.
Pub strategy, while it cannot be
discussed in full, has two or three
features which can be made public.
The Pub has developed a varia
tion of Field Marshall Montgomery's famous artillery barrage as
a preliminary to assault.  It is expected   that   three   hundred   and
twenty-one   thousand   rounds   of
copy  paper  will   be   fired.   This
will entail the expenditure of at
least two tons of copy paper.
Students need not fear that
their faith in the Pub has been
misplaced,   Publications attack
will go forward in a phalanx
formation  behind a series of
reporters as battering rams.
The Pub fully expects to score
at least three thousand points, and
at the end of the game the Council's basket may be expected to be
mere shreds.
SCOTT MASTERMINDS
Followers of Thoth are well organized under the command of
Marshall-in-Chief John Tom Scott.
It is expected that Sports-General
Luke Moyls will be responsible
for the left wing.
All Pubsters have been in training since September, as any fool
could plainly see oy visiting the
Pub any day. Empty copy-paper
shells, Mk XLV, are contlually
present, as War Games (with live
ammunition), have been gomg on
continually.
To build up stamina, Adjutant Deebee Blunden develop-
an obstacle course early in
January. For several weeks
the Pubsters have disdained to
use tho swinging door to enter
the Pub, but have vaulted over
the counter. Climbing over the
top of the wall Into the Totem
office was the final test, developed by Adjutant Green.
The cost of training has been
high. Coke bottle clubs are continually breaking during trial
manoeuvers, due, undoubtedly, to
sabotage by Council members in
Frank Underbill's factory.
But it has all been worth it. The
Council may expect the worst, for
we know by personal spying that
they can't even hit their own
waste-paper basket. All wrinkles
have been Ironed out, and our
Typewriter-Inter-Com   barrage
has been worked out to perfection.

and   agriculture  and  4th  or  5th
year in applied science.
Ten awards are given to undergraduates.
Home Ec. Students

• DR. ROWNTREE, eminent
home economist from the University of Washington, will speak
to Home Economics students tonight at 8:30 in the Mildred Brock
room.
Invitations have been issued to
women throughout the city who
are interested in home economics.
servatives gained only 3 seats ln
a house og 44. This year, under
the leadership of Doug Belyea,
they returned to their usual position at the head of the list, with
19 seats out of ,42. They polled
58 out of a total vote of 124.
The CCF under Les Raphael
were second with" 29 votes and 10
seats.
«
Other   parties  represented   are:
Liberals, 12 votes, 4 seats; Canadian Independents, 9 votes, 3 seats;
National Coordination, 8 votes, 3
seats, and Labour Progressive, 8
votes, 3 seats.
The Progressive Conservatives
platform, as outlined by leader
Doug Belyea, is to "introduce
sound, sane, and practical legislation."
"We don't intend to build any
dream castle or a cake with fairy
king."
They  propose   to  place  dominion  control  on  education,
make   English   a   compulsory
subject in Quebec, and French
a compulsory subject throughout the rest of Canada.
"We absoultely and Irrelevantly
stand  for  independent  enterprise
in co-operation with the government," he said.
"The Progressive Conservatives
realize that no nation can become
self-sufficient in the post-war
world. This has been proved by
the conferences at Yalta."
Speaking for the CCF party, Les
Raphael maintained that his party at present .'stands in the middle between two forces," conservatism and radicalism. He declared that the CCF with its social
legislation is the "only party which
provides protection against the
slings and arrows of fortune."
The Canadian Independence
Party, headed by Lloyd Bry-
don insisted that "if Canada is
worth fighting for abroad she
Is worth fighting for at home."
They proposed a new one-party
government and a new Canadian flag, and displayed their
idea of a Canadian flag.
Roy Lowther spoke for the Labour Progressive Party and set
forward their program as "give
everyone a job."
He believed that the present
status of university entrance and
placing of graduates is very faulty.
The main point of the Liberal's
platform was the "provision of
jobs rather than relief for the unemployed."
National Co-ordination Party
under Hal Daykin planned to do
awuy with tho "outmoded parlia-
metary system of government."
They were present complete with
arm bands and an Anglized "sieg
heil."
Tiie meeting throughtout was
very riotous. Often the speakers
could only present their platforms
through the intervention of Jim
Wilson, president of the Parliamentary Forum, and chairman of
the meeting.
• REPEAT PERFORMANCE—This picture, although it
was snapped in the Stadium sheep enclosure at this time
last year might just as well have been snapped by our
Ubyssey photographer Tuesday. Mary, UBC bacteriology
department ewe, repeated her double feature performance of
last year and again become the mother of twins. Tuesday,
Johnny Owens, keeper of the Stadium, will repeat his nurse-
maidly duties.
BONNIE LADS OF COTC
MAY STEP OUT IN KILTS
•   THE COTC may soon be able to march down the Mall
with kilts swinging behind their own pipe band, if a
move to convei't the unit to a Scottish battalion is successful.
—""——————————— A large majority of the men in
major and the nucleus of a pipe
band.
The old uniforms would be retained to be worn during training, and the new ones used for
route marches, dances, and ceremonial parades.
Employment Board
Needs Director
• DIRECTORSHIP of the University employment bureau is
now open to members of the student body. Those interested
should address a written appli-
Students' Council or the retiring
director, Brian Burke, before
March 8.
Applicants may arrange an interview with Burke gy phoning
him in the evening at ALma 0056.
Each director of the Employment Bureau receives a honorarium, the amount of which is determined by the Students' Council.
the corps are believed to be behind the move, which was started
by Sgt. Maj. Coles, and petitions
signed by numbers of the men
have already been, turned in.
KILT SURPLUS
If the unit votes to make the
change, and permission > is granted
by military authorities, the COTC
would have a choice of several
tartans now in stores in the city,
which were left behind by Scottish regiments going overseas.
Since  the  kilts and accessories
are   already  in  stores  ready  for
use the cost would be negligible.
Supporters  of   the   scheme   believe that the new uniforms would-
help   breed   an   enthusiasm   and
spirit   among   the   men   of   the
corps and would provide the basis for the development of a bat-
talian tradition after the war.
Besides the kilts, the uniform
could include a bonnet with a
cockade of the university colors. In place of the dress tunic
the men could wear coats from
the    walking   out    uniforms
formerly worn by local troops,
which  could  be  cut  away  to
fit the kilt.
The  COTC  already  has  a  pipe
LSE CO-ORDINATES
NOON PROGRAMS
•   ESTABLISHMENT of a co-ordination committee for all
noon-hour events was approved by the major and minor
LSE at a meeting last week,
Musicians Form
Co-ordinating
Council at UBC
• MEMBERS of tho six active
musical clubs on tho campus
met Tuesday to form a council to
co-ordinate all of the musical activities at UBC
The clubs are tho Musical Society, represented by Elinor Hagart,
the University Symphonic Club,
represented by Johnny Bayfkld,
Leon Bjarnason, the concert orchestra, represented by Erika Nalos, the Jazz Society, represented
by Roy Lowther, the Varsity band,
represented b Johnny Bayfield,
and the Glee Club, represented by
Norma Stowe.
These clubs will all be future
members of the organisation.
Other members may be the
dance orchestra and the Radio
Society.
The organization will be known
as the Music Co-ordinating Council. Tills year It will meet once
more in the beginning of April
to explain the workngs of the
council to the new executive.
PREVENT CLASHES
The aims of the council are
threefold. The first Is to prevent
schedule clashes among the musical groups. Most of Tuesday's
meeting was spent in discussing
how this could be done. Suggestions were put forward to have
the council plan the bookings or
to have the clubs plan their own *
bookings after the council has
made a booking plan.
The second aim Is to promote
co - advertising^   between    the
clubs. It was suggested that at
a meeting of the Jazz Society,
for instance, the program for
the next concert of the string
orchestra would be announced.
It was also suggested that publicity of the musical clubs would
be handled through one member
of the Ubyssey.  All of the publicity directors of the clubs would
handle their notices through this
man. Another suggestion was that
notices and signs would be made
by members of the separate clubs.
The  third  aim  of the  council
was the promotion of a department of music for UBC in the future.   It was decided that plans
concerning this aim would not be
discussed until next year.
Elinor Haggart, president of the
Musical Society, was elected chairman for all of the meetings this
year.
The committee wiil be made up
of representatives of major organ,
izations and will work to secure
more active co-operation in campus drives and will attempt to
prevent clashes between noon
hour events.
CONTROLS PEP MEETS
Organizations or persons planning pep meets, concerts and
shows, and meetings open to tht
general student body must now
secure permission from tho oo-or-
dlnating committee.
The committee has tho power,
ln tho case of conflicting dates,
to allot and schedule meetings ac.
cording to their relative Importance.
"The powers of this committee
are not repressive but It can not
function without some measure of
authority," stated Gordon Bertram, president of the Literary end
Scientific Executive.

THE UBYSSEY
MARCH 1, 194S
The Task of I. S. S.
This week every student of UBC will be
asked to give one dollar to ISS. Two questions are going to be asked a great deal on
the campus.
1) What is ISS?
2) Why should I give a dollar to ISS?
Although all students who were here
last year will know in a vague sort of way
that ISS stands for the words "International
Student Service", and that it is some sort
of organization which sends books to prisoners of war and internees, and provides study
supplies for refugees and internees in Europe, China and America, most students will
not know a great many other important facts
aboutISS.
They will not know for instance, that
ISS is a branch of World Student Relief of
Geneva, Switzerland—an organization which
has branches in Australia, China, Great
Britain, New Zealand, Sweden, France,
India, South Africa, Switzerland, and the
USA, as well as in Canada. They may
not know that ISS is non-sectarian, non-
racial, non-political, that it has committees
similar to that at UBC in twenty Canadian
universities and colleges.
They may know that ISS provides books
and other study supplies to German prisoners of war in Canada as well as to Canadian
soldiers in German and Japanese prison
camps. But they may not know that, according to the Geneva Convention of 1929 which
regulates all international relief organizations, such as the Red Cross and ISS, that
it is only by working among the enemy
prisoners in our own camps that we obtain
permission to work among our own men in
enemy camps.
Many students may also know that ISS
has done its most extensive work since the
beginning of the war. The contributions
made by Canadian students to ISS in tiie
session 1939-40 amounted to $500. In 1943-
44, they amounted to $18,020—$1,168.97 of
which was donated by UBC.
But students may not realize that ISS
was never formed as simply a war relief
organization. Its aim is to help students
think internationally as a means of permanent peace, and to aid students wherever and
whenever they need help to continue their
studies, through international relief. Those
aims were added to, during the years that
preceeded the present war.
When war came in 1939, and students
throughout Europe and Asia required extensive aid if they were to study under conflict, ISS became almost completely a student relief organization—by adding the Red
Cross in its work among the prisoners of
war and internees, by providing clothing
and food in addition to educational facilities
for the evacuated students of Europe and for
Chinese students, 75% of whom had to depend upon government or outside relief to
carry on their studies and keep their universities moving ahead of the advancing
Japanese armies.
Now, and immediately following the
war, the relief work of ISS must continue
. to be its main function. The demolished universities of Europe must be restored. Libraries and scientific equipment must be replaced. Students who have been transported
to Nazi labor camps must be aided to return
to their studies. In the work of rehabilitation, ISS is collaborating with UNNRA.
But through it all, ISS has not forgotten
that it stands for something more than just
to provide students with material needs—
although those needs must first be filled. At
a meeting of the ISS War Executive in
Geneva on July 31st of 1944, the old aims
of the organization were extended and
clarified.
Here they are as they stand in the report of the meeting.
"ISS recognizes the following values as
the true basis of the University:
"(1) The sincere and disinterested
search for truth—which implies (a) a deliberately critical intellectual curiosity regarding all results reached and all theories already established, (b) the duty of resisting
all external pressure liable to hinder the
search for truth;
"(2) The training of men with a wide
and coherent view of human culture and a
sense of their responsibility towards society
—which implies (a) the fight against any
excessive encroachment of mere technical
training on the domain of true scholarship,
(b) an honest seeking for both national and
international culture;
"(3) University community—which implies (a) that no one should be at a disadvantage in his university life because of
political or social conviction, religion, nationality, race, fortune or class, (b) that community life within the university should be
given the greatest possible encouragement,
(c) that a spirit of close union and collaboration should be brought into being between
the universities of all countries."
Those are important aims, worth knowing about and worth supporting. But they
can only begin to be realized, when we are
first willing to give material assistance to
the students who have not been able to attend safe, unharmed universities during
these five years of war.
That is ISS. That is why you are asked
to give one dollar to "invest in humanity".
Terror of Public Opinion
Some there are who say they care
nothing for public opinion. Whether such a
claim may ever be genuine is indeed a question; for if the fact is welcome or not it
remains true that love of approbation and
fear of disapproval motivate our activities to
an immeasurably large degree. We have a
suspicion that the very ones who loudly,
voice indifference concerning the judgments
of the crowd broadcast their stand in order
that a certain admiration may be drawn
from associates.
In by-gone days how often have college
men attended football games, hockey practices, and so on because of the opinion of the
student body. Here at Mount Allison there
is a silent influence which forces conformity
to a loosely defined but well recognized type.
Woe betide the unfortunate who, without
some tact in meeting the requirements of
the Conservative crowd, enters college. Ostracism is the mildest form of punishment
inflicted upon him by the group. Democracy
plays yet too little a part in our lives to
permit the peaceful existence among us of
a kind of individual distinct from the rest.
Reflect on the relatively few friendships
between professors and students. The average college man for well known reasons is
often afraid to approach his instructor. First,
he does not wish the other to think higher
marks in studies represent an ulterior motive in his friendly conduct. Again, he fears
the maddening comment of watchful classmates. Often they see students play to the
weaknesses of susceptible college professors.
Consequently their disapproval follows the
one who innocently or otherwise acquires
advantages, so considered,—over the rest.
It is perhaps in recognition of this that
teachers are slow to compliment, slow to
become friends with students. For the sake
of the pupil, the hostility of the others must
not be aroused by careless words. When the
professor feels it difficult to meet students
on common ground, and when they realize
the unseen but sharply felt barrier of social
opinion standing between them, a condition
arises which accounts for the small number
of actual friendships of professors and those
whom they teach.

• PEOPLE seem to think that
Vancouver is going to be, in
the not too distant future, a very
large city. People, some of them,
seem to think that this is going to
be desirable. People, the rest of
them, seem to think that this ls
not going to be desirable.
A comparison of Vancouver present with the two versions of Vancouver future, its present size and
larger, should provide some interesting sidelights on this question.
Vancouver at present is a prosperous, slightly more than middle-sized city. According to population it ranks third • ln size ln
the Dominion of Canada. Tho area which it covers is considerable,
much greater, to some minds, than
is neccessary for a city of Vancouver's population.
CHIEF CHARM
But, is not this very expansive-
ness one of the chief charms of
Vancouver? Do not the distances
from the main business sections
tend to make the structures in the
residential districts hornet in
which to live rather than houses
in which to exist? Do not the
wide streets, and many parks help
alleviate the unpleasant Impression that one is living in a large
industrial centre, and help replace
that Idea with the pleasant sensation of living in a beautiful district?
From what I have heard a-
bout many of the world's large
cities I have come to the con*
elusion that whenever mankind
has seen fit to enlarge the site
of any of his villages to that
of a 'big city' he has lost many
of the things that are essential
to living, and without which
he can merely exist.
For Instance, take London.  According to the British this is the
largest  populated  centre  in  the
world.   What have we there?   A
large and very busy business centre. This is not bad when one can
get away from it after the day'3
work is done.
SARDINE SITUATION
But can the Londoners got a*
way? The residential sections ot
London have been described a*
row upon row of houses along
both sides of narrow streets. The
houses, many of them, are built
with their fronts right up to the
sidewalks.
The suburbs may provide a
better environment,  but they
necessitate   a   train   trip   for
those who have their offices In
the city. The close ones, while
perhaps    not   requiring    travel by train, are so close that
they have taken on the aspects
of the city, and are becoming
extremely congested also.
Vancouver, on the other hand,
bas a beautiful residential district,
apart, but not too distant from the
city centre. A short trip from the
office by auto or street car and
the weary businessman has completely changed his habitat.   No
longer  is he  in  Canada's- third-
largest city.   No longer is he ln
a congested industrial centre.
SUBURBAN "FAIRYLAND"
Instead he has arrived in a quiet,
restful area where he can pass the
night without worry ot nearing
people walking by on we sidewalk three feet from his bedroom
window; he has arrived in a fairyland where rolling lawns and
beautiful gardens flourish unhampered by the smoke, dirt, and
dust that are ever present "downtown."
Another example. Many people
have said that If Vancouver should
grow, (and by this they mean
if the size of Vancouver's waterfront should be enlarged,) the
city would become more prosperous and rival any seaport ln the
world.
That  is fine.   But what of
the people who must live In
the seaport?   We  can  easily
imagine the disappearance  of
English   Bay,   Kitsilano,   and
other   bathing   beaches,   and
their replacement  bj  massive
dock    structures    capable    of
handling  the largest ships a-
float.   But,  is  it  worth  lt  to
lose  all  this  beauty  and   recreational  area  for  the  mere
fulfillment    of    a    capitalist's
dream and an egoist's pride.?
If  these   docks  could  be   built
eastward there would be less harm
clone to the beauty of Burrard Inlet,  but even so the increase  in
population  would create a vastly
greater   problem.    The    undeveloped areas within the city's limits could probably house the added hordes that would come, but
would the beaches be able to cope
with the swarms that would be
there on hot summer days?
Medical Brief
By ALAN MACFARLANE
• IN VIEW OF the impending crisis due to the dearth of
physicians in Canada, the people of British Columbia
should realize—that in the best interests of B.C., and Canada
as a whole—the construction of the building to house the
pre-clinical years of the Faculty of Medicine at the University
of British Columbia should be started as soon as possible,
with the formation of clinical facilities at the Vancouver
General Hospital within two years, irrespective of any decision concerning other faculties.
It is not just a matter of estab
lishing another faculty at UBC,
nor an expenditure to make it
possible for "wealthy men's" sons
to become physicians. Seventy-
five per cent of the student* in
pre-medlclne at UBC come from
rural areas outside of Vancouver.
Seventy-five per cent of these
students are either paying their
own way, or are receiving only
partial assistance from parents.
A REHABILITATION AID
The establishment of a Medical
Faculty at UBC Is a matter of the
immediate establishment of a moil,
leal center to aid in the rehabilitation ot Canadian Health—a process whieh would require tram U
to 15 years even aher #U establishment of the Faculty of Medicine at UBC.
We, as Canadians, must decide soon upon throe questions.
(1) Do we want Canadians
to have tha benefits of the
highest type ot medical care
possible?
(2) Do we want a medical
school, which will ensure the
highest type of scientific medical care and the benefits of
medical research m every corner of B.C.?
(3) Do we want B.C. students to have equality of opportunity in getting a good
medical education?
The following facts should help
us to provide the answers.
(1.) Figures obtained showing
the number of rejects from the
Armed Forces because of physical
or mental defects .marks Canada
as a C-3 Nation.
At present the ratio of 'physician to population in Canada is
approximately one physician to
2000 people. Moreover, the population is steadily growing by natural increase and is likely to expand rapidly through post-war
immigration. Yet, existing medical schools offer no apparent hope
of a correspondingly increased
supply of physicians. At the present time the number of physicians
graduating from Canadian medical schools only equals the deficit through death, retirement, and
war casualties.
If, and when health insurance Is inaugurated, the acute
shortage of  physicians would,
not make such a plan feasible,
until the ratio of physician to
population   had   reached,   at
least, one physician to 1000 people.  Even with the establishment  at  once  of  a   Medical
Faculty at UBC, it Is estimated
It would take 12 to 15 years to
obtain this ratio.
Each year, in Canada, sickness
costs us enough In lost time to
build 2700 bombers.
MINUTE EXPENDITURE
Each year, Canadians spend $36,-
000,000 on patent medicines, and
$235,000,000 or more on liquor.
Compare with this the minute
sum spent on medical research.
Consider, in comparison, the cost
of two of the greatest boons to
mankind—namely Insulin discovered by Sir Frederick Banting, and
Penicillin by Sir Alexander Flem-
ming. In each case the amount
spent on the discovery of these
was less than $10,000.
(2.) A committee working ln
Vancouver for a proposed Faculty of Medicine at the University
of British Columbia has estimated
the approximate cost at $2,000,000
initial outlay, and an annual cost
of $150,000. In other words we
need only a fraction of the cost of
the aircraft which pass over Vancouver in one day to build the
school, and less than the cost of
one of these machines to operate
all year.
Each year, the people of B.C.
spend $1,225,000 on curative measures for tuberculosis, and the same
amount on mental illness. In other words, each year we spend on
these two ailments more than the
Initial cost of the proposed faculty, and fifteen times the annual
operating cost of the faculty. How
much better 1 would be to invest
in  a  first  class  medical   centre
where B.C. brains could be trained
to try and alleviate this condition.
Consider   the   condition   of
rural areas ln B.C. for medical
care.   In some districts there
are hospitals but no physicians,
in some there are neither hospitals nor physicians. A medical school in Vancouver would
alleviate this condition.   Students from all over the province would be trained ln B.C.,
remain in B.C., and return to
these rural areas to practice.
It has been suggested, that graduates from a Medical Faculty at
the University of British Columbia would be required to spend
from three to six months of their
compulsory one year internship in
rural  hospitals,  to learn the  aspects of rural practice—me problems of the "Country Doctor."
In addition, a high class center
of medical learning and research
at the University of British Columbia would provide a means for
rural and urban physicians to do.
post-graduate work, and enable
them to obtain the benefits of the
latest in scientific medical research, care, and prevention, Instead of having to travel to Eastern Canada or the United States

BATHER BOTHER
Many people complain at present of the crowded conditions of
the city's eaches. With no increase in bathing beaches apparent, what will become of Vancouver's many bathers? Each one will
form part of a seething mass of
human flesh, unable to go for a
swim without having to share the
same gallon ot water with three
or four other exasperated nata-
Engllsh Bay, and Jericho will all
tors. Vancouver's Second Beach,
Third Beach, the loveiy Kitsilano,
become secondary Coney Islands.
What more horrid fate is there for
any bathing beach?
The appeal of a great city
may be strong to the boy from
the farm, but If people desire
to live In It the city not only
must retain the appeal of a
large city with its nightclubs
and big stores, but also It must
provide districts where Its
people can "get away from it
all".
Therefore, when, and only when,
Vancouver can enlarge its beaches,
direct the expanse of the city
centre away from present and future residential districts, expand
its means of public transportation,
and still retain the beautiful
parks in the residential districts,
and the general grandeur of the
whole area, then, by all means,
let it grow.

STUDENTS SURVEY AMS REVISION PLANS
UBYSSEY PRESENTS
PLAN OUTLINES
By BYRON STRAIGHT
•   IN AN EFFORT to bring its readers up to date on the
problem of students council revision, the Ubyssey presents a brief outline of each of the revision plans presented
to the Revision Committee.
The plans have been discussed very briefly below, but
no effort is made to give a complete description of each.
DOMINANT AIMS
Quite obviously, each scheme has a dominant aim. Some
emphasize efficiency; others, fair representation. Again, we
emphasize that no effort is made to describe all the characteristics of each plan; only the major quality of each one
is discussed.
The Student Council Revision Committee has already
spent a tremendous amount of time and discussion on the
various characteristics of an ideal form of student government. The Committee does not expect to have a final proposal
ready to be submitted to the general student body for two
weeks at least.
In the meantime take a look at the plans outlined below,
for it is mostly from these schemes that the Committee 1b
drawing ideas.
Two of the plans submitted were very much alike. Ted
English's proposal was so similar to that of, Brown. Lamb,
and Grantham that they have been outlined as one.

and the Students Council
This scheme follows the principle of the Minority Plan in hav.
ing an advisory group, but makes
a more departmentalized effort to
put the advisory group to work.
It appears that it will acheive all
the objectives of the Minority
Plan with perhaps the chance of
making various departments more
efficient.
The advisory group has an excellent feature In that each of the
major  departments  has  its  own
treasurer.  The treasurers form a
finance committee with the elected treasurer on Student Council.
Hie Undergraduate Committee is functional and has definite responsibilities to individual
faculties and to the university
as a Whole. This plan is a good
attempt to achieve large scale
representation   with   departmental efficiency. Some doubt
arises over exact definition of
responsibilities, but this could
be cleared up very quickly In
practice, probably.
The question is whether the Undergraduate   Committee   would
function with the same efficiency
in its subcommittees as the other
departments  (Athletics, LSE, Social   Promotion),   or   would   become a lost  group.   The Junior
Member's   department   Is   more
clearly defined than that of our
present council.
The Advisory Council meets
four times a year. The Student
Council meets once a week.

Each department has routine
jobs and independent problems.
They are extremely self-empowered. The treasurers of the departments make up a committee with
the elected treasurer on the Presiding Council.
In a smaller school where activities and problems are obvious to
the whole student body, lt ls very
easy to achieve efficiency. This
plan, however, suggests that de
partmentalization may be even
more effective in a large school.
The problem of fab representation
is not so vital in a small school.
It may be possible to combine
the features of this plan with features of another scheme to attain
both efficiency and fair representation.
Once again the question arises;
which is more important, efficiency or large scale representation?
BRUCE YORKE'S PLAN
POLICY COUNCIL
Pres., Sec, Treas., Arts, Aggie, Engineers, Commerce,
and the heads of departments:
Men's Athletics, Women's Athletics, L.S.E., Social Oovemment
The emphasis here is on decentralization. Each department has
its own treasurer. The treasurers
make a finance committee with
the elected treasurer on the presiding council. The government
department h a n d les discipline,
promotion of large projects, campaigns.
Difficulty may arise over control of Alma Mater offices at first,
but a workable scheme could be
found.   The   proponent suggested
that the policy council handle routine business of the Brock offices.
Obviously this plan is based on
the belief that representation on
a general council is not as ompor-
tant as efficiency of individual
seperate departments, with control by people who know their
own problems. The policy council
is the co-ordinator and controls
the sharing of funds.

MINORITY PLAN
Same presiding council as Majority Plan
plus
Advisory Council of
42 members, including the 12 of the presiding council above
Major LSE (8), Class presidents (11), Future Faculty reps. (4),
Editor and senior editors of Ubyssey (4), Interfraternity Council
rep.  (1), Pan-hellenlc rep.  (1), Phrateres  (1).
with the Presiding Council (12).
This additional advisory council meets four times a year. It Is
designed to: give a better contact
between council and students, to
promote Interest by students ln
council problems, to provide workers for special problems and promotions.
It would discuss: finance, pass
features, Brock administration,
discipline policy, current campaigns, Ubyssey policy, general
student policy to be presented by
representatives at inter-univerdty
conferences, large general issues.
The emphasis is on better representation. By providing the
same executive countil as that of
the Majority Plan, It achieves the
same characteristics of the Majority Plan. The question arises whether the extra advisory council
will actually achieve its objectives without introducing* any
harmful characteristics.
MAJORITY PLAN
President, Secretary, Treasurer,
and representatives of:
L.S.E.,  M.A.A.,  W.A.A.,  W.U.S., Sophomores, Juniors, Artsmen,
Aggies,. Commerce, Engineers.
(editor of Ubyssey ex-officio)
This plan replaces the position
of Men's Undergraduate representative with representatives of four
faculties and adds a, sophomore
member.
It Is designed to make the council more functional instead of be
ing merely a policy group in some
matters.
It aims at specific jobs for specific persons, combining fair representation with the satisractioo
of having a closely Knit workable
group.
• WHAT ls the ideal form of
student administration for the
students of this university?
That is the problem that faces
the Committee for Revision of the
Students' Council. Very soon the
general student body will be asked to give its approval or disapproval of a final scheme proposed
by the Revision Committee.
Naturally It Is expected that
perhaps not all parts of the final
scheme will be accepted, and
therefore the final scheme will be
open to further revision by the
masses at the general meeting of
all students.
To acquaint you with some of
some of the qualities that are
sought In the final ideal plan.
An Ideal scheme of self government should provide at least for
the following characteristics:
1. Fast and efficient handling
of routine local business.
2. Fast and efficient promotion
of affairs involving the general
public, such as homecoming, dances, games, campaigns.
3. Quick handling of emergen
cies,
4. Fearless promotion of Large
Scale future projects, sOim as new
buildings.
5. Careful budgetting with emphasis on sharing to provide maximum benefits of spending.
6. Positive and consistent discipline.
7. Sharing of responsibilities by
those ln authority so that no one
is overburdened,
8. Continuity from year to year
so that new committees don't start
from a green beginning.
9. Adaptability t o changing
conditions without complete revision.
10. Fair representation of conflicting groups.
11. Representation that arrives
from a broad section of average
students.
• 12. Healthy interest by average
students in the worn of rTie council, to provide easily obtained
workers.
13. Representation in departments by experts in those departments.

IFC To Present
Frat Lectures
• MEN planning to join a fraternity next year are asked to
register immediately in the AMS
office.
The registration is absolutely
free and the idea is to give freshmen a complete picture of fraternity life. Up to now, the registration has been very poor and the
lists are far from complete. Don
Newson, IFC president, urges that
all freshmen interested should
register immediately in order that
lists arid plans may be completed.
In the past, freshmen have not
had any knowledge of fraternities
and in order to alleviate the situation, IFC has arranged lectures
to be given this spring on the operation of Frats.

FUND ESTABLISHED
For the past twelve years the
Monro Fund of 180,000 for medical
research has been awaiting the establishment of a Faculty of Medicine at the University of British
Columbia. It ls fairly certain to
assume that further grants from
philanthropic organizations such
as the Rockefeller foundation
would contribute to medical research If a first class medical
school were established at the U-
nlversity of British Columbia.
(3.) At the present time there
are two hundred anu seven students, who come from all over
the province of B.C., registered ln
pre-medicine at the University of
British Columbia. Sixty-six of
these are first year students, sixty-
seven are second year students,
and seventy-four are third and
fourth year students who will be
making application for admission
to medical schools this spring. Of
this total seventy-four applicants,
the maximum number that can be
admitted is thirty-eight. This
leaves thirty-six disappointed students who will have to apply along
with the sixty-seven students now
in second year the following spring
for thirty-eight or leu coveted
positions.
B.C. students wishing to
study medicine may spend
three or four years (governed
by National Selective Service
Regulations) at then* own University, taking as many as possible of the available pre-medical and pre-cllnlcal courses,
and then complete their training by four or more years of
further study far from home,
usually In Eastern Canada, at
an annual cost of about 11500,
or about 16,000 for four or more
years.
The overcrowded conditions ln
existing Canadian Medical schools
today has compelled all the schools
to impose limitations on enrollment, and preference naturally
therefore is given to applicants
from the province in which the
medical school is situated. As a
result, each year, many worthy B.
C. students suffer disappointment
from being unable to gain admission to any medical school.
"BRAINS" EMIGRATE
In addition, each year, the best
potential medical brains from B.C.
go East to study medicine, where
they make all their medical contacts during their four or five year
stay in the East, and do not return to B.C. where they are vitally needed. In other words, at
the present time, the province of
B.C. through its University is
nothing more nor less than a preparatory depot for future Eastern
Medical Brains! Would It not be
better to train these potential
physicians in B.C., and retain
them where they are vitally needed—in British Columbia.
In conclusion, the people of British Columbia should realize that
a Faculty of Medicine ls not to be
considered as a part of the grant
from the Provincial Government
to the University, but rather, as
a separate entity—a center of medical science—built for the purpose
ef health rehabilitation in British
Columbia, and Canada.
ItU realised that building
materials may not be Immediately obtainable, but this is
no reason why the whole Issue
should be shelved. On the
other hand, while construction
is being planned, Why not commission some old buildings—
perhaps some non • essential
military quarters — and with
first class faculty members,
give pre-cllnlcal Instruction to
those ot our students who otherwise will be bereft of their
medical education? Granted,
this might add to their hard-
ships, but it need not lower
their standards.
"Marie Curie worked in a leaky
shed—but she discovered Radium!"
Toronto I J, Protests
Id Year Old Vote
• LOWERING of voting age to
18 years met with disapproval
in a poll taken of University of
Toronto students by the Varsity,
student daily, this week.
Students asked "should 18-year-
olds be allowed to vote In federal and provincial elections?" replied in the negative with a majority of 58.8 per cent. The remaining 41.2 per cent favored the
. proposal.
Typical reaction of those who
did not favor lowering of the voting age was the reply of an ex-
serviceman who said, "The idea
that if you're old enough to fight
you're old enough to vote is sheer
nonsense. The 18-year-old is not
politically conscious, except for
the bigoted, prejudiced ideas of
the local historians in the high
schools. "
Dave Berenstein, who favored
the proposal, replied, "In my estimation 95 per cent of the population are not capable of voting
correctly anyway. If the 18-year-
olds were allowed to vote they
might develop an early interest
in the government and its control,
especially during their schooldays,
when they have the opportunity
to read and discuss political problems."

Miltonmen Take Fifth Hoop Tilt
THE UBYSSEY, MARCH 1, 1945 — Page Four
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
off the backboard...
By LAURIE DYER
SUCH IS LIFE
• WELL KIDS, it's all over now but the crying. Varsity's
hopes for the Inter A hoop trophy went flying past on
the wings of Ted Milton's Higbies Tuesday night when the
Chiefs were downed by two points in the dying seconds of
overtime.
It was a great team that walked off the floor with the
trophy and their coach, Ted Milton deserves a lot of credit
for the show the boys put on. It was a great team too, that
lost, but luck just wasn't with them. Either team might easily
have won. That's just the way it goes.
It's Been Pretty Grim
The Chiefs have really been put through a tough grind
during the last couple of weeks and considering everything,
they've really done well.
They were handicapped at the beginning of the season
because they were in Senior A company and supposedly
"wouldn't be able to keep up with the big boys." Just how
well they have done is indicated by the fight that Lauries
had in the semi-finals when the Chiefs forced the series to
the full three games and lost by a narrow one point margin.
The change of coaches in the middle of the year wouldn't
be considered the best of strategy in some circles out the
Chiefs took it in their stride. When playing coach Bruce
Yorke gave up his duties to Art Johnson, Bruce became the
only man on the team who wasn't a freshman.
That says a lot for the boys, too. Many of them had never
seen each other or at least played ball together before they
came to Varsity. Working together perfectly, the fellows
almost came through with a championship squad.
All of the boys are still young enough to play Inter A
ball again next year with the exception of Bruce Yorke who
is graduating this year.
Art Has Done Well
The successof the boys is due not only to the fact that
the boys wgre going out with a determination to win each
game but also to a popular, hard working coach in the person
of Art Johnson. Art took the team in hand early in January,
and shaped up a team with all the fight and spirit in the
world. .
Art will tell you that he just had the stuff to work with,
but without his help in playmaking and general coaching, the
team feels that they could not have had such a great year on
the maple courts.
To all the boys, goes a solid pat on the back for the time
and work they've put into basketball during the year. To
Art, all we can say is 'thanks'. Art spent many an hour
working for the squad and the boys appreciate it.
Anyone who was at the game will tell you Varsity didn't
go down without a fight and after all, that the main thing.
Higbies won, but they won it the hard way. They are two
great teams. Let's hope that the Vancouver boys take the
Provincial championship.

Hockey Season
With Two Tilts
• VARSITY ice hockey club
winds up its season this year
with a pair of inter-team games
this Sunday and the Sunday following. The games will take place
in Hastings Forum at 8:00 p.m.
sharp.
Lineups of the teams are—First
team: Joe Moyls, goal; Ken Devlin, Ted Taylor, Dick Hadlan, forwards; Gordy Smetanuk and
Frank ' Walden, defence. Second
team: Reg Clarkson, goal; Jim
Rowledge, Bill Buhler, and Ernie
Cooper, forwards; Chuck Jones,
Hugh Gardner, and Bill Wiggens,
defence.
• HOW'S HE DO DAT—No, it's not a trick pix—those are
real basketballs that big Herb Capozzi is grasping in his
hands. Art Johnson looks on in amazement at the husky
Chief who thinks it's quite a joke. Herb scored 26 points

UBC 'BIRDS BATTLE REPS
IN FINAL McKECHNIE TILT
• IN THE last McKechnie Cup
game of the current season,
Varsity Thunderbirds battle Vancouver Reps at Varsity Stadium on
Saturday. UBC Intermediates engage Victoria College All-Stars in
the preliminary tilt at 2 o'clock.
Having already  won  the  McKechnie Cup, Varsity will be out
to extend their unbeaten string as
well as prove that they are invincible.    Last   time   these   two
teams met, the outcome gave the
nod to the Birds by a 16-9 score,
Also, after the hard refereeing that the boys ran up a-
gsjnst in Victoria, the Blue and
Gold will endeavour to show
Vancouver   rugger   fans   just
how good-they are when they
are not handicapped as they
were on the Island.
Black Hawks Hold
Leafs To3-3 Draw
• THE CELLAR dwelling Chicago Black Hawks fought to a
3-3 standstill with the Toronto
Maple Leafs Tuesday night, to gain
another point in their last drive
for a playoff spot. This win boosted the Hawks to within five points
of the fifth place New York Rangers.
Toronto's Art Jackson opened the
scoring for the Leafs near the end
of a very ragged first period. Jackson found an opening in the Chicago   defence  and   beat   Karakas
with a long, hard drive.   At the
opening of the second period, the
Hawks pressed hard and countered
twice before the period was half
over.   Bill Mosienko was the first
to find the range for the Chihawks,
followed by Wilf Field on a passing play with Cully Dahlstrom,
The Toronto team came out
fighting at the start of the flnal
canto to take a one goal lead
on  goals  by  Nick  Metz   and
Teeter   Kennedy.    After   this
setback   the   Black   Hawks
stormed   around   the   Toronto
cage where hustling Bus Brayshaw hung up the tying marker.
However, when the Thunderbirds go into action, they will be
without two of their greatest stars.
Jack McKercher is out with a
charlle horse and Joe Pegues, dashing wing forward, is still out with
his injured ankle. McKercher, dependable veteran of this year's
McKechnie Cup winners, has been
a tower of strength in Varsity's
backfield and without him, the
students might have been just another team as they were last year.
Another player who will be
missing  from  the  lineup  on
Saturday is Earl Butterworth,
playing  In  his  first  year  of
rugby and making a fine job
of lt. Earl suffered a dislocated shoulder while making a
vicious tackle on one of the
Rowing Club players last week.
Bob Ross, UBC wing three, received a sprained ankle in the
practice on Tuesday.
Those who witness this important  struggle  will   not  be  disappointed as it is quite possible that
it will turn into the finest game
of the season.
There will be a social function
after the game on Saturday night.
It will be in the form of a dance,
with everyone connected with
rugby in Vancouver and Victoria,
invited to attend.
SUGGEST PAY

came off the floor with a narrow 57-55 win over the original
hard luck club, UBC Chiefs.
Although it was a heartbreaker for the Students to lose,
it was a thriller from beginning to end from the standpoint
of the spectators. It was a fitting climax in that it took five
minutes of overtime before a winner could be decided between the two exceptionally evenly matched teams.

'BIRDS, LAURIES
IN THIRD TILT
ON SATURDAY
• SATURDAY NIGHT is the
night for the third game of the
Senior A hoop finals between
Lauries and Varsity's Thunderbirds
to decide the City championship.
It should be a great game to
watch particularly with Lauries
trying desperately to take the
'Birds and make it tough for the
Students in another game at King
Ed.
The 'Birds, on the other hand,
have high hopes of getting It over
fast. Starry Sandy Robertson will
be out to show mere of the scoring
ability that put him on top of the
league In scoring. Game time is
8 o'clock at Varsity.
Kappa Sigmas
Win Touch Tilt
• IN THE FINAL game of the
Intramural touch football finals, Tuesday at noon, the Kappa
Sigma's took a 10-7 win over the
challenging Epsilon entry. In the
previous games of this series the
teams fought to a draw in the
first and the Epsilon's defaulted the
second.
Ole Bakken scored the opening
touchdown for Kappa Sigma, when
he took a pass in the end zone
from Sandy Robertson. At the
half way mark In the second half
the Epsilon crew stole the ball,
when Kappa Sig's "Shad" Shadwell made a bad snap back to
Robertson, and scored two points
on a touchback.
With but two m'nutes to go,
the Epsilon's took a two point
lead, when hustling Ed Ryan
scored the only Epsilon touchdown   on   a   pass   from   Reg
Clarkson.   As the game came
closer to the final whistle, the
Kappa Sigma boys put on the
pressure.   In the last play of
the game, lanky Sandy Robertson threw a long pass to Art
Stilwell who scored that all-
Important touchdown.
The   Epsilon   team   played   the
whole of this rough contest at a
slight disadvantage to the Kappa
Sigs as they were short one man
in the field.
Varsity's ace pivot man, Herb
Capozzi, that the Blue and Gold
didn't take the trophy. Herb showed some of the form that brought
him the cup for the most valuable
player in the league as he scored
26 points and at most opportune
times.
The Students got off to their
• usual bad start in the first half.
In the first canto, the Chiefs
just couldn't hit the mesh.
Shots just kept bouncing off
the hoop and backboard continually and the Blue and Gold
had to work hard to come back
enough to narrow the margin
to four points at the end of the
Initial quarter.
Higbies got hot in the second,
netting an extra two points on
their original lead to end the half
with a six point margin, 28-11.
Thus it went on through the
third quarter and as the Blue and
Gold entered the flnal frame, they
were on the short end of a five
point lead. Play remained about
the same through the first five
minutes of the quarter and then
things began to happen.
There were three minutes to
go and Vanity .was down by
seven markers. Big Herb was
right In there then too when
with fifteen second left the
Chiefs were back in the flght,
down only two points. Then,
a pass ln to Herb who feinted
right, pivoted left and found
the basket with a beautiful
pivot shot.
The crowd went mad . . . and
so did the Chiefs. For the next
fifteen seconds the boys kept
pouring the ball at the mesh but
the hoop had had enough and the
ball just couldn't find its way
through.
There were two seconds of overtime left when Jerry Stevenson
found an opening and started to
plough through. He went up with
the tying basket but just before
the shot hit the hoop, the whistle
blew as the referee heard someone call "timeout Varsity", not
knowing that Jerry was in the
clear. That was the way It ended
with Higbies two points bringing
them the Inter A championship.

WITH RETURN OF PEACE
B.C. Electric planners will set in
operation a $50,000,000 program
for improvements oj services
which will be a source of encouragement to industry and
stimulant to prosperity■
MANY people assume-that
because the HA'.. Electric
is a privately owned utility,
its power ls expensive,
but such Is not the case.
Throughout the past 48
years the cost of «lectric
service supplied by thc B.C.
Electric has been steadily
reduced until today it is
offered at a new all-time low.
A survey by James Wilson,
president of the Shuwlnlgan
Water & Power Company,
in the Montreal Gazette,
of electric power utility
systems—'public and private
—shows that British Columbia rates are lower than
those of any state In the
Union and only slightly
higher than those of Quebec,
Ontario and Manitoba, due
mainly to the mountainous
nature of the country here.
It Is the policy of the B.C.
Electric to supply power to
the communities it serves at
lowest rates consistent with
sound management.
