NFCUS Survey
Rhee, US
Claims Attack
On North Korea
Was   Planned'
"The attack launched by
South Koffean forces on North
Korea was deliberately planned by the Syngman Rhee
Government with the aid and
advice of the United States
Military Experts Commission,"
Dr. James B. Endicott claimed
in an address to the Student
Peace Movement yesterday.
Echoing statements appearing in
"What About Korea," a pamphlet
prepared by the Regina Peace
Council, he stated that documents
uncovered by North Koreans definitely proved Rhee's intention to
take over all Korea by military
means. ■
"For ovar a year before the war
broke out MacArthur was making
plans (or th* invasion and policing
of the country. When all the evidence Is brought before an International Tribunal the United Stales case wiil not stand up," he said.
The pamphlets, whicli were distributed after the address, contained an exoerpt from a letter
purportedly from Rhee to Dr. Robert Oliver, former American advl.
sor to the Rhee Government. It
runs as follows: "I am firmly convinced that now Is the psychological moment to take aggressive action ... We shall drive Kim Ir
Sen's men into the mountains and
starve them out there. Our defense line must be set up on the
Yalu Rivers
must convince American states
men and American public opinion,
sd that they may tactfully consent
to our starting operations and can
carry out our program, and also
give us the necessary material
support." '
"Rhee had blocked all attempts
for a peaceful unification of Korea," Endicott stated. "He was bent
on a military solution."
On the question of Chinese intervention in Korea, Endicott said
that no large Chinese army has
been Identified In Korea, and that
stories of huge concentrations are
"American falsehoods."
"The only Chinese now In Korea
are a force of from 30 to 60 thousand guerilla volunteers. People
are getting fed up with the fairy
tales from Tokyo and asking 'how
many hordes to a platoon"' Reuters have dubbed the supposed
Chinese masses 'Mao's Ghost
Army' "
"The large scale retreat Is explained by conditions in North
Korea—adverse weather, high incidence of frost bite and strong
guerilla concentrations. In addition MacArthur saw a wonderful
chance to discredit China In the
eyes of the U.N."
Endicott pointed out that the
Chinese position was clear. They
have had a history of long and bitter experience with American dishonesty. They fear MacArthur because of his announced Intention
to attack China.

AMS presidential candidates will
go through a careful examination
by UBC students Friday when they
take part in a special open forum
ln   the   Auditorium   at   12:30   p.m.
Candidates will be subjected to
this question session as/a result
of a Student Council motion January 15 which called for the open
forum ln an attempt to familiarize
students with the presidential candidates and their views on campus matters.
Nominees for the presidency will
be allowed to speak for a limited
length of time, probably about five
minutes but tho elections committee will not decide definitely until
they see how many candidates are
running for the office, committee,
chairman Joanne Strutt told The
Ubyssey  Monday.
Moderator at  the

With still one mors day to

Faculty at the University of
Berkeley was described as
"vacillating" and "apathetic"
in the recent loyalty dismissals
there by two former members
of the Berkeley faculty addressing a  Civil Liberties  Union
meeting Friday.
Students at the university were
prepared to support professors and
Instructors who refused to sign the
Regents anti-Communism clause,
logic professor A. Strohl, speaker
at the meeting, said. However, the
faculty did not provide leadership
for them.
Speaking from the floor of the
meeting. UBC physiology .professor
Dr. H. Copp said that professors
there were "half apathetic and
hair scared.' Dismissals at Berkeley were what brought him to
UBC, he said.
In instituting the employment
clause stipulating that professors
were not connected with Communist organizations, the Board of
Regents feared neither disloyalty
nor Communism, Mr. Strohl said.
Political rivalries and a desire
to manoeuvre the president of
the university out of his job were
probably among their motives, said
Mr. Strohl. He described* the
events as "a series of blunders and
For the non-slgnlng professors,
the issue throughout was one of
academic freedom. "They didn't
want political considerations a con
dltlon of employment," said Mr.
Dr. Copp added that the principles of guilt association, and ot
guilt until Innocence was proved,
were among his objections to signing.
Final result of the oath controversy was that all faculty members
were required to affirm in their
employment contracts that they
were not Communists. Non-signers could appeal for a hearing when
"the ordeal by oath gave way to
ordeal by inquisition," said Mr.
Council May Need Further Loan
To Make Gym Useable This Year
Student Council moved last week to ensure that students
would be able to use the War Memorial Gym this term by
requesting that the bursar continue to collect the $5 building fee
until extensions to the original building contracts are paid
Council officials pointed out
that money which ls now being
pledged for the government will not
he available until late ln September and bills for present extensions to the original contract must
be paid by April or May. /
Nonie Donaldson, president of
the Alma Mater Society said that
since the original contract was
drawn   up,   many   additions "have
i t
been   necessary   before   the   gym
could open.
To cover such additions, it may
be necessary for council to obtain
a bank loan to meet bills when
the gym opens. According to the
officials, pledge slips will not con-
etitute sufficient security to obtain a loan from the hank.
Therefore, lt has been necessary
for council to make sure money
will be forthcoming by requesting
the bursar to continue collecting
the present $5 addition to the AMS
Miss Donaldson said that the
collection of the fee would provide oufflclent security for the soc
lety to approach the bank for an
additional loan to complete essentials for the gym,
"We could shelve the plans for
War Memorial gym this term but
we 'think that students want it
open this year," Miss Donaldson
said. "If we have tp borrow money,
we hope to retire most of the debt
this summer."
Miss Donaldson pointed out that
even If sufficient money Is not collected this summer it will only
mean that students will be paying
to the gym fund for another year
instead of having the building fee
directed   towards  another  project.
"All council has done," Miss
Donaldson said, "is to guarantee
that a bank loan will be available
if necessary. Council has asked the
bursar and the board of governor.

Money, Money
A downtown newspaper stated somewhat
categorically last week: "the federal government must come to the aid of our university."
The newspaper pointed out the low salaries paid to professors, the increasing operations costs, and the hardships wreaked upon
students by rising fees and rising costs of
Good points, all of them.
Nobody will deny the picture they paint.
But the problems inherent in Jedfiral aid
to education are somewhat more complicated
than our downtown contemporary foil called
upon to explain.
The federal government is still prevented
by the BNA act from dipping its fingers into
education. No doubt federal aid, as a moans
of equalizing education opportunities across _
the nation, must come sooner or later But it's
going to be a long while before the technical
problems can be overcome. Provirlci.nl jurs-
diction seems likely to remain a point of hot
The provincial government, however, is
not so bound.
Twenty years ago, UBC received 2V2
percent of the provincial budget. Twenty
years ago students paid about 25 percent of
the costs of running the university.
Today, UBC receives IV? percent of the
. . . More Money
Anyone. with a ready sense of humor
could scarcely help being amused last week
at the manner in which UBC's professors
registered a mild and restrained complaint
regarding their current financial situation.
Unlike most salaried persons and wage-
earners, they did not come out flatly nnd
state that they need more money Thoy
merely pointed out the comparisons between
their own small raises and those of other professions and between their almost-ur.budging
salaries and the ever-rising cost of living, and
then said something should be done.
But the deductions that are to be made
from their declaration should be a sobering
influence on even the most frivolous of citizens.
The Ubyssey is not versed in tho roundabout means of expression which the professors themselves exercised. So here it is in
plain English:
Our teaching staff needs more money,
right across the board, and needs it badly
and immediately.
The University administration would bo

government for a grant that would bring

provincial budget.  Today students pay  50
percent of the costs of running the university.
Granted the government now provides
some services it did not-then proyide. But
provincial revenues have increased in pro
portion—and UBC is giving a much broader
service than ever before.
The brighter boys in Victoria, always
preparing to stump the hustings, loudly pro
claim that they are contributing  -i larger
number of dollars to UBC than ever before.
To keep the peace, President MacKenzie
nods quietly.
But such argument is sheer smoke-screen.
With rising costs of living, rising costs of
maintaining the University and general full-
scale inflation running rampant, the only
figures which remain signifcant are the percentages of the total budget spent on given
And these figures show clearly that UBC
i.s on the losing end.
Students do not object too highly to paying fees at the present .rate. But they have
a right to expect that the government will

Among them are a comparative freedom
of thought and expression, the opportunity

growing institution, and, if we dare say so,

mockery of the respect to which persons of

will, unless changed, result in the destruction, academically, of our whole institution.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We would like to thank publicly
the people who were responsible
for arranging the pep meet on
Thursday, Jan. 25th In the Armory.
The pep meet and parade were
arranged under the combined sponsorship of the Agriculture Undergraduate Society and the War Memorial Oym  Fund  Committee.
The Aggies, under Les Crosby,
Chuck Carter and Elizabeth Money
arranged the parade and the Kickapoos under Jack Barnett and Bill
St. John, arranged the pep meet.
We want to thank, then, the following people for taking part in
the show: the AUS, the Kickapoo*,
Claude Imogen and his orchestra,
the VOC Squamlsh Band, and tho
Scotch Pipe Band and Dance Club.
Also to be thanked are those
people who turned out to support
the meet.
Thank you,
Ted Lee.

And Still More Money
Tiie perennial NFCUS campaign for
federal scholarships may get a tactual shot
in the arm from Mt*. Hollick-Kenyon''- survey
oi' student costs of living.
On the other hand . . . the janitors may
just find themselves with lots more waste
We hope not, because the fight is a
worthy one, and no fight was ever hindered
by a few good solid facts.
The principle thai: NFCUS hopes some-
clay—in the dim and distant future maybe—
to see implemented, is one with which nobody
enn disagree: that everybody who has the
intellectual ability and the desire for higher
education is entitled to it.
We are slowly moving toward that ond.
President MacKenzie has reaffirmed it time
and time again and the Royal Commission 0:1
the Arts seems likely to agree with him.
There will never be a clay, of course,
when it will be possible for everyone to get
a  university  education  without  a  struggle.
But the struggle has always added to the
worth of the product—provided that it's not
so tough that it forces people out of the race
When and if the goal is achieved it's
going to create a lot of new problems. For/
instance the time has already passed when a
degree was a passport to luxury. A degree
will become only a sympol of intellectual breadth, a symbol of the ability
to appreciate life at the full, not a ticket for a
white collar and $10,000 a year.
We have a suspicion that this will add
to the worth of the sheepskin—not detract
from it. Our education has been getting pretty
cluttered lately with trade-school education.
The new era might see a rebirth of interest in
the humanities and a consequent upsurge of

The Crease Is Gone
IS IT POSSIBLE for one gentleman with all the troubles in
the world upon his shoulders to suddenly feel enlightened
of his burden by a cup of coffee and a few minutes of conversation?
Well Brock Ostrom, he of the Plan, underwent that form of
metamorphosis Monday he, Albert Laithwaite and yours truly discussed the latest and difficult problem which confronts university
athletic teams.
That crease which since Friday had drawn Ostrom's ears closer
towards the centre of his face vanished showly as English Rugby
Coach Laithwaite explained a quote attributed to him ln Friday's
Issue of the Ubyssey.
It seems Ostrom understood Laithwaite to have said "we do not
need an athletic director here" and Brock was greatly disturbed..
For one thing Albert himself had been one of the first gentlemen to?
advocate a new deal in university sports circles and Brock and his
committee gave a cry of alarm when they thought he was trying to
run the ship aground. -
they Won't Support Teams
HOWEVER ALMRT explained it as this: "It Is not the athletic
plan I'm angry with it is simply the attitude of the students
towards their teams. They voted for the plan; now they won't support it. It's not just the poor attendance at the rugby games but
basketball soccer and footbaU have also suffered.
"I would like very much to see the cheer leaders and pep shows
used at our rugby games. Publicity in both the Ubyssey and the
downtown papers would help us too.
"You do not know how much lt mean? td the hoys to have somebody in the stands cheering them on. Why the last game we won waa
due mainly to one boy who blew a bugle and encouraged the team."
Personally my feelings rest with those of Mr. Laithwaite who for
four years has given his. time, like the others—Orville Burke,
Jelly Anderson, Jack Pomfret—and has been nothing but heartbreak
due to student lethargy.
Brock Ostrom informed us that a change in the manner of press
releases—from Ole Bakken's office—will go Into effect today. Managers of the top four sports will meet with Bakken to decide which
team has the most important game scheduled. Publicity will be
aimed towards the particular team's'advantage.
Ubyssey Not All To Blame
PREVIOUSLY* English rugby received an amount of publicity
compared to that of soccer—enough to fill the empty spots on
the sports page. However, don't hasten to put the blame on the
Ubyssey. With a limited staff—two active workers—this sports
department cannot possibly get reports of every team activity Into
the pages. Therefore we depend largely on press releases from the
Graduate Manager's office.
On basketball we have a whole hooklet of Information, football
the same. English Rugby Is not to be found In great quantity ln
releases and soccer—well who ever heard of the game?
As far as the students themselves are concerned I just do not
understand. They supported their football team at the gate oulte
nicely I'd say. And that team did not win one game In the Conference. But take.rugby basketball and soccer and you'll find a different
They're Gutty Men, Too
THE HOOP8TER8 have a small very small student attendance
while soccer gets Gene Smith and rugby our Doug Hawkes and
the boy with the bugle, bless his heart.
If American Football appeals to the students because It exemplifies man's age old desire to hit something and run, then rugger
should appeal also.
Seriously, however, English Rugger like American football
offers everything fans wish to see. The rugger players do not wear
padding, but they do tackle and run and kick. And anyone who has
watched the smooth, Intricate work of a three-line will never forget
the sight.
So now that we have gotten that off our chest fellow students
let's remember a little bit of encouragement will give these gentlemen if Intestinal fortitude an incentive.

The Vikings, who only managed to win one event were

Saturday night at King Edward Gym 64-55 but, as anyone who was amongst the fifty-

Danger Signs To Be Posted
As Judo Men To Organize
Ever think of trying your
"hand at judo" You may have
the chance.
A judo club being formed on
tlio campus which will try to
give instruction to those who
would like to stop shuddering
after reading the "Its pound
weakling,''    advertisements.
Contrary to popular belief,
judo is not a mysterious form
of mayhem, by which the few
Initiates may flip people ovei
their shoulders at will. Adu-
div. ii is a highly developed
sport, which can lie learned by
anyoii"   willing  to  practice  it.
^f. *p *p
.Iiuh> is also one of !lu> most
exciting and interesting indoor
sports, as well us uu extremely
fence. Sport judo holds no element of risk for those participating.
Falling is taught before throwing. Self defence on the other
hand—well . . ,
The proposed Judo Club expects to be able to arrange
displays at half-time during
basketball games and to get
Japeneso experts to demonstrate   their   art.
The student of judo, judoka
in the Japanese terminology,
begins by learning to fall correctly.
After he has mustered tills,
lie proceeds to the innumerably throws, trips and holds
that must be mastered before he can lay claim  to  the
highest rank in judo, the   coveted  Black Belt. * ^
During this time lie can enjoy himself playing judo. Judo-
playing or randori, is definitely
a good way to spend a' half-
hours or so. You don't get
hurt, but every muscle and
every nerve Is used to its fullest extent, which makes it
very  interesting.
#        #        #
I should think that girls,
would find tills club worth
looking into. The sport has
Intrigued many women, and
some have become lop experts
at   it.
.lust Ihiuk of the social implications if the females were
to muster judo. I shudder al
the thought.
