Dr. Goldman said, "but they represent the troubles of people all over

the judges for the McGoun Cup de-
date at The University of British Columbia were "notoriously prejudiced
in favor of the affirmative" have
been answered by AMS President Ted

The Honorable Christian Oftedal,
distinguished Norwegian statesman,
author, publisher and "outstanding
Christian" visited the campus Tuesday
noon and lunched with President N.
A. M. MacKenzie and several members
of the UBC staff and senate.
When asked how the Norwegian
University had fared during the war
he said that the majority of students
had been captured by the Germans
and plaiced in concentration camps,
The few who escaped were forced to
go underground until the end of the
He explained that the problem of
post war university education had
been met by the building of a nev/
university at Bergen on the western
coast to supplement the one already
established at Oslo.   The new univer
sity. Norway's second, was officially
opened on April 9, 1946, the anniversary of the historic date of the German invasion of Norway.
Mr. Oftedal, who is a member of
the Standing Committee for Higher
Education in Norway, said that their
next project is the establishment of
an Anglo-American college in Norway.
It will be housed in historic buildings
■erected in 1786 at the small village of
Kongsberg which is in the center
of   the   skiing   activity   in   Norway.
"Many world 'champions are trained in
this region," he said.
He smilingly acknowledged, "The
site is much the same as that of your
university—very beautiful."
In explaining the purpose of an
Anglo-American college, Mr. Oftedal
pointed   out   that   their   educational
system had always been based on
the continental system and had been
influenced by the Germans and the
Danes to the south. Now they want
more of the spirit of team work instead of individual competition, "We
should get something of your natural
way of looking at things," he said.
As for his opinion of Canadian universities, Mr. Oftedal said that UBC
was the first one he had visited and
that from it be. had received the best
possible impression of Canadian universities. He perferred our "wide
open spaces" to tho Norwegian universities which are crowded into tihe

It is distasteful for The Ubyssey to have to
deal editorially with any individual Student
Council member, especially when that member happens to be a candidate for president
of the Alma Mater Society. But the person
in question, Bill McKay, chairman of the
Undergraduate Societies Committee, and of
the Discipline Committee, has forced the paper's
Since his appointment to lead USC, McKay
has been accustomed to lay charges and
threats against the editors. It has now reached
the point where The Ubyssey is beginning to
fed like the object of a smear campaign to
gain votes.
It is very easy to arouse antipathy against
the student newspaper, the one student service
which probably comes into closest contact with
Hie average undergraduate. It is especially
easy to do that when the editors themselves
are far from satisfied with existing conditions.
They strive constantly to improve the paper's
service to its readers, but are faced with an
overwhelming registration and & shortage of
adequate printing equipment, equipment which
is far herded to get than new autos or new
The Ubyssey makes mistakes, an understandable thing in view of the mass of material
handled and the fact that some of the editors
unfortunately have to take five courses while
Hiey may spend up to forty or fifty hourse per
week working, without pay, on their Publications Board jobs. At that, it makes no more
mistakes than do downtown dailies.
On the whole, the paper has enjoyed amicable relations with practically all active student groups, many of which have thanked the
editors for coverage of their activities. Student
officials who have worked in harmony with
the paper have been pleased with the results.
Not so McKay.   Here is his record.
Shortly after assuming office last November
he permitted a USC "investigation" of the
Totem picture situation, with some charges of
a slanderous nature being made. The facts
were at the disposal of McKay. But he chose
instead to hail the editor-in-chief before USC,
where once the situation was explained and
the facts presented it was clearly seen that
no "investigation" was needed.
At that time also, McKay demanded another
"investigation" of Ubyssey coverage. Once
again the background was filled in, with the
result that student faculty leaders who have
bothered to help the paper to help them have
been pleased.
But not so McKay. Everybody else but him
was still out of step.
When the paper printed the statement of a
candidate for treasurer who was supporting a
certain presidential candidate, an opponent of
McKay's, Bill McKay, in his then official
capacity as a member of the Elections Committee, caused to be written to the editor a
letter demanding that no further such statements be printed. It was explained to him
that: 1. if one candidate backs another, the
students should know about; 2. the candidate
might just as well have made the statement in
a public meeting, which obviously could be
easily reported.
Now, as the last straw, comes the letter which
appears elsewhere on this page. This paper refuses to print anything which it knows to be
untruthful, so corrections of statements in the
letter are printed in reply. Some of those
corrections were admitted as justified by
McKay; but he still demanded that the letter
be published.
The self-defense rests. '
The ^X^assail Bowl     By norm klenman
The suspension of Tommy Littleford and
Tommy Rippon, two UBC students who have
played for outside teams without permission
from the Men's Athletic Directorate, by the
Discipline Committee last Thursday night fo-
cusses the attention of the student body once
more on fixe controversial Article XXIV of the
AMS code. Under this article, the Discipline
Committee carried out its legal duty, and the
only recriminations against it, or against the
MAD, are moral ones. But they are sufficiently
strong moral recriminations to justify the
Sfadeat Council in the complete and immediate
repeal of Article XXTV.
Says Article XXTV: "No student is allowed
during the session to take part in athletic
competitions or games for any team or organization other than a University team without
the consent, in writing, of the Men's or
Women's Athetic Directorates."
This article says, in effect, that the AMS has
the right to forbid any student from participating in any outside activity of which there
is a duplicate outlet on the campus. Article
XXIV has not been extended to any field beyond athletics—as yet—but the precedent is
there, and its eventual extension is not inconceivable. The crime of the article lies in the
fact that UBC is the only university in this
province, and to attend it, the student must
accept the AMS code fully, and hence must
accept restriction of his right of personal choice
both in his capacity as a student and as a
private individual.
The reasons for joining an outside team—as
for partaking in any outside activity—are essentially personal. They may be reasons of
finance, personal associates, ability, opportunity
—but in any case they are valid. The desire
on the part of the student body to assure a
good supply of athletic material — another
manifestation of the good old college spirit—is
at best a poor reason to retsrict students from
acting in a personal capacity beyond the university gates. When a university forbids its
students to play againts it, it assumes the
right to deny motives far beyond its competence.
Teams are not the only organizations to
suffer by the desire or necessity of its members
from undertaking outside activities. The
Ubyssey itself has lost—and suffered by losing
—half a dozen competent and valuable editors
and reporters, who have accepted jobs as correspondents for downtown papers. But to
ask Council to require these men to join The
Ubyssey or not write at all, is unthinkable.
Once again, the decision in this case is a personal one of the correspondents concerned. A
private school may attempt to regulate such
activities, but UBC is a public institution,
supported by taxpayers' money, and it can
usurp no such arbitrary authority.
The Student Council is not a group of vicious
Ogres, but the elected I'epresentatives of the
students. They have permitted Article XXIV
to stand because the pressure from its highly-
placed supporters has outweighed the passive
opinion of the students themselves.
The case of the suspension of Rippon and
Littleford, however, is evidence, of the poverty
of intelligence evident in the formulation of
the article.
Article XXIV is arbitrary, inelastic, unfair,
and incapable of enforcement. The President
of the AMS and the Student Council should
repeal it immediately.

with such a spirit it must be possible to arouse some fellow-feeling.
One big selling-point the pre-meds
make repeatedly: There is a shortage
of hospitals in the Vancouver district; there must be more, and there
necessary for the pursuit of large
scale research for the prevention and
cure of diseases are practically non
cxistant in British Columbia. A medical school established at the university could, and would, serve in this
manner for the whole province.
No other addition would so
strengthen the prestige of UBC as the
addition of a good school of medicine.
The prestige of a university is of first
immportance to its graduates, and
with this thought in mind it would be
a good idea if the student body as a
whole took advantage of every opportunity it can find to promote the establishment of UBC's medical faculty.
will be more. If the pre-meds and the
university do not manage to get a
hospital located on the UBC campus
now, when the need Is great, there is
a great likelihood that the medical
school will be delayed for 10 years,
or possiby permanently dropped.
Teaching of medicine is not, strictly
speaking, education.lt is not going to
be like so many other courses—those
that offer gain to the successful student but not to society. The teaching,
end learning, of medicine Is of great
benefit to the state as a whole: Those
who are able to complete their courses
will be in a position to raise the general standard of health throughout
the province.
Let the penny - pinchers refute
that point.
Lesion Letter
With commencement of a new year,
Branch 72 wishes to express its appreciation to all those veterans who have
co-operated in making the branch not
only the largest in British Columbia,
but an effective unit of the university
Since September 16, the memberslup
has increased by 32%, making a total
of 2,566 members at the present time.
However, this is an over-optimistic
view of the situation, as many of these
have dues outstanding. But it is hoped
that with the current MEMBERSHIP
COMMITTEE drive all delinquent
menvbers will put themselves in good
making regular weekly visits to
Shaughnessy Hospital and the TB
ward of General Hospital where It
distributes cigarettes' and Ubysseys.
A recently adopted policy gives free
membership to Legionaires undergoing
a prolonged stay in hospital for the
period of their hospitalization. Magazines are taken to the hospitals on the
average of every two weeks, or whenever there are enough donated to
warrant a special trip.
The HOUSING COMMITTEE reports that with the huts coming into
service at Little Mountain, the housing
problem for married veterans with
children should be almost solved by
the end of this term. Approximately
160 families have been accommodated
through Legion-University co-operation.
101 loans have been made by the
average size of the loans being $25.
Through efforts of the EDUCATION COMMITTEE, arrangements
have been made to augment the regular six unit Summer session with an
additional directed reading course
of three units, selection being made
by the Veterans' Counsellor, according to Individual requirements.

instrumental in (he formation of
the University Employment Bureau,
through which, in the period March
1st to October 31st, 2565 obtained
part-time employment, and 119 permanent positions.
Not the least of the accomplishments of the Legion during the past
year, has been the opening of the
LEGION CANTEEN, in the back of
the Legion Hut. This has alleviated,
somewhat, the crowded conditions
of campus coffee-shops.
Early in the year, a PIPE BAND

Letter From The Editor
Dear Bill McKay:
I shall try to be brief. Too much
space is being wasted on your complaints.
Can you offer specific evidence of
someone twisting around what you
have said? (I note that apparently
all the downtown papers are similarly
guilty. Are four newspapers wrong
and you right?) Who resents what
If you will read oil of this year's
papers you will see that it was made
quite clear that authorities higher
than the discipline committee had
asked for action against card-playing
and drinking, (e.g. page 1, Nov. 21)
I do not know what Is this "trend
towards commercialism" which you
have noted with alarm. If you mean
that we are now closer to being a
real newspaper, then we are proud.
Students at UBC need a well-managed, professionally written newspaper, not a high-school gossip sheet.
It is true that we have not always
printed your statements in full. Tf
that is the chopping and omitting you
mean, then I disagree as to whether
or not your "ordinary student ha3
been greatly deprived."
We too are not satisfied with some
columns. Some have been killed already, more will be. Would you like
us to reprint the column you wrote
last spring—I think that was not any
too hot, if I may use the term.
The Ubyssey did have a reporter at
the USC meeting of January 20.
News of your resignation did appear — see issue of January 23, page
Do not complain to us about downtown papers. The Ubyssey does not
exist to cover up their mistakes. I
am sure, however, that they will be
glad to get your letters with the true
It is correct that no reporter was at
the Discipline Committee trial. One
was assigned to go Thursday evening,
but found that his studies came first—
so did not attend the trial and did not
inform the news editor of his absence
until Friday morning, Shall we fire
him? But a story did appear in Saturday's paper—based on information
which you gave to a reporter.
-The Ubyssey does consider it is
working in the interests of the University by attempting to improve its
service. Student politicians can help
o^ hinder the attempt. Tuum est
Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
There are certain things which I am
going to say that may annoy you.
However, I presume you receive advice and. criticism as I presume you
give it—with the good of the University at heart.
As Chairman of the Discipline Committee I have tried to stimulate student co-operation rather than student
antagonism. To this end, I have always
given to reporters concrete reasons for
any actions I have taken. But what
happens? Someone twists around what
I have said, omits the reasons for my
actions, and slaps on a headline which
students resent.
Most students do not know that
action taken by the discipline committee against card playing and drinking on the campus was undertaken by
motion of Student Council. Nor did
The Ubyssey say so.
I have noted with alarm your trend
towards commercialism; a trend which
I strongly oppose. When you try to
follow the path of so called proper
newspaper technique you desert what
I feel should be the primary objective
of The Ubyssey—to serve the student
body. The students of this University
pay for The Ubyssey and why should
the servant try to rule the master?
You wonder about the lack of student spirit and then misquote, chop
and omit news of interest to ordinary
students—not businessmen or newspaper magnates but ordinary students.
Why? Do you fear that such news
might deprive The Ubyssey of receiv
ing an award? So what? What about
the drivel of some of your columnists?
Is that of interest? Does it promote
'student unity? I think not.
The Ubyssey was expressly asked
to have a representative at the USC
meeting of January 20 but did not.
At this meeting I announced, two days
before nominations for President could
be officially submitted, my resignation
from the Elections Committee. I also
announced Discipline Committee trials
later on in the week. None of this was
mentioned in The Ubyssey.
In the downtown papers the blunt
statement appeared that student
athletes were to appear before the
Discipline Committee. No explanation
given. Did The Ubyssey explain to its
readers what was going on? No, It did
contain a letter to the editor suggesing
I resign from the Elections Committee
-although I had done so several days
At the Discipline Committee trial
Thursday night, representatives of the
downtown papers were present—but
no Ubyssey reporter.
Most students will have read the
story of the Discipline Committee
trials in the downtown papers. I have
written letters to these papers to explain the truth. I have not the space
to discuss that here.
The Ubyssey should work in the
interest of the University not in the
interest of The Ubyssey.

McLean Lays Charges;
Livingstone Sends Reply
Dear Sir:
It has come to my attention that a
number of false statements have been
made by Mr. Grant Livingstone of
No. 72 Legion Branch concerning Mr.
Len Starkey, ex-president of the National Conference of Student Veterans and myself as the representative
of that organization at the World Student Congress in Prague last summer.
I feel that the facts ought to be
brought to the attention of the students of UBC.
Firstly, Mr. Livingstone claims that
Mr. Starkey overstepped his authority by accrediting me as a delegate
to the Congress when he was only
entitled to send an observer. My
credentials stated defllnitely that I was
an observer on behalf of the National
Conference. On learning in Prague
that only delegates were accepted, I
wired to the Conference and was accredited as a 'representative*, which
the credentials committee accepted.
I at no time spoke on behalf of the
student veterans of Canada, nor did
I commit the National Conference in
any way.
Mr. Livingstone further stated that
i voted with an Eastern European
bloc (which did not exist) and against
the other Canadian delegates. This
is not true. In fact, on the all-important question of acceptance of the
constitution of the International Union
of Students, I voted for it along with
Miss Dorothy Beales, the official delegate of the Student Christian Movement. The other three Canadians,
representatives of Jeuness Etudiants
Gatholique, Canadia Federation of
Newman Clubs and A.G.E.U.M. (a Fr.
Cdn. Student Organization) abstained.
I regret that Mr. Livingstone has
seen fit to make untrue statements
when the students at UBC are unacquainted with the facts, in order to
defend his stand at the Veteran Conference. I trust that this will help
clear the air.

Dear Sir: •
I would like to thank you for giving
me the opportunity to reply to what
seems a deliberately-timed charge
against my integrity.
Mr. McLean's statement substantiates in fact and implication all of
the icharges I made regarding this incident at the last general meeting of
the Legion; he makes his own denial
completely ludicrous.
His first point, that I wrongfully
accused Mr. Starkey of overstepping
his authority in accrediting Mr. McLean to the Congress of the IUS at
Prague, is destroyed by his own
statement. Mr. McLean, it seams, was
"accredited" by wire while he was at
Prague on the sole and personal authority of Mr. Starkey. Such was
my charge.
Mr. McLean further states that he
didn't vote against the other Canadian
delegates; he then proceeds to show
wherein he did. He draws the inference that all he opposd was a Catholic bloc. I can only point out that if
th IUS is merely a 'bote of contention betwean Communist and Catholic
factions it is of little value and of
potential harm to the interests of the
sixty-five thousand Canadian student
veterans represented by the NCSV.
Certainly Mr. Starkey had utterly no
justification for supporting his own
bloc when a large percentage of the
sixty-flva thousand are Catholics.
My statement, in any case, was based
on one read to the National Conference by Norman Riley of St. Francis
Xavier, it having been written by one
of the other delegates to IUS. This
statement stood uncontroverted on the
floor of the NCSV. So far as I can
see it remains true tfiat Mr. McLean
supported a Communist rather than
the Canadian point of view at the
conference. The Canadian viewpoint,
I felt, was what sixty-five thousand
Canadian student veterans would
have expected in their "representative"—If they have ever been consulted. Such was the feeling of the
Mr. McLean ably sums up the case
against himself and Mr. Starkey, and
certainly does "clear the air" by his
statement that he, "rt no time spoke
on behalf of the student veterans of
Canada."  If not, what the ' * WAS
he doing in Prague as our "representative"?  That's the point
I don't deal in untruths, Mr. Editor. GRANT B. UVTNGSTONE.

THE TTBYSSEY, Thursday, January 30,1947.   Page 3
ISS Finds French Serious
The average European, university student, superficially at least,
takes life more seriously than his
counterpart in North America.
This is one of the most vivid impressions brought back by Canadian students who toured Europe
last summer under the auspices
of the International Student Service.
At the Chalet des Etudiants in
Combloux, which ISS operates
for the benefit of students who
suffered mentally and physically
during the war, two Canadians
sat down to dinner with a Frenchman whom they had never met
before. Introductions over, the
Canadians racked their brains for
some bright remark to make about
the snow on Mont Blanc or the
program for the  following evening.
But before they had time to say
"II fait beau," a torrent of language was issuing from the French
student. The sum of his remarks,
the Canadians decided after some
consultation amounted to this: "To
what philosophical school do most
North American students subscribe? Has existentialism become
a strong force or is some more
idealistic philosophy more popular?"
The Canadians conferred again,
stuttered a little, blushed. They
didn't think it was fair to say
Canadians didn't think but they
knew that even at the universities
they don't think in this way. Finally they decided on a safe answer.
"Pragmatism," they said guides
the life of most of our students,
This isolated incident is a fairly
good indication of the almost unhealthy fervid intellectuallsm
which typifies the European student of postwar. The r-aMfi'nn
student, who is at the opposite
extreme, could no doubt gain from
a greater interest of this kind in
matters intellectual .But most of
the ISS delegates felt that Europe
had gone too far. Physical conditions have been and still are so
desperate that Europeans escape
to the life of the spirit whenever
they can possibly do so.
Veterans who wish to do so can
obtain proof of citizenship free of
charge it was learned this week in a
press release from the Directorate of
Public Relations at Ottawa.
To obtain his Citizenship Certificate,
a veteran need only call at any county
clerk's office and fill out an application form which is to be mailed to the
Citizenship Registration Branch, Secretary of State, Ottawa.
Other applications are required to
pay one dollar for Citizenship certificates.

The decision passed by the Discipline Committee last
Thursday when two athletes on the campus were suspended
from further participation in any Varsity athletics for the
remainder of the year 1946-47, has brought disapproving
glances from many groups on the campus. In fact, many people
have said that the whole thing was unfair.
In case you are not up on the facts, two Varsity students
who played baketball for an outside team without permission
from MAD were given a sentence that expelled them from all
activities of the AMS, membership in the Big Block Club, and
participation in all UBC athletics for tho remainder of the
year 1946-47.
It's There To Be Followed
The sentence passed was one recommended by the Men's
Atheltc Directorate for the punishment of such offenders and
which was passed by the Student Council to be used if such
a case should be brought before the Discipline Committee.
Now before we go into the matter of whether or not the
Article which states that UBC students who play for outside
teams without permission from MAD shall be brought before
the Committee, let us remember that, the Article is right there
in the Contsitution and that it is generally known among the
campus athletes that such a condition is in common practice both
on this campus and on practically every campus in North
The two men who first came before the Discipline Committee admitted that they had received notice from the MAD that
they were not within the Constitution and that they should
turn out for Varsity teams. In ignoring these letters, they were
at fault.
The Correct Attacking Method
Surely there are other ways of showing disapproval of an
Article of the Constitution besides deliberate disobedience.
The Article is there.   If it is wrong, let us find out why.
The original reason that the article was included was to
assure the University of a top-rate team to represent the Blue
and Gold in athletics. If such a rule was not in effect, there
would be nothing to stop atheltes playing with another team to
the disadvantage of the University.
Yet, there were other reasons that the students had this
article included. It helped to build up a college spirit that
every University must have. It got around the possibility of
bitterness when two teams played each other, both made up of
University boys but only one playing under the name of the
University. It prevented other teams from "poaching" on the
University teams.   Yes, there were reasons.
To be sure, there have been many athletes who have
written to the MAD asking for permission to play for an outside
team as they were not able to make the UBC squad after trying
out.   In all such cases, permission was granted.
Maybe It Has Its Faults
Now just what is wrong with the Article. It may be said
that the MAD is practically running an athlete's life in that
they are telling him who he shall play for.
They are telling him that if he is good enough to play for a
UBC team, he will turn out to all practices, play in every game
(unless there is some good reason why he can't make a game
once in a while), travel with the team ... he will do anything
that is necessary to remain on the team.
Now there are many athletes who want to play a game
just for the fun of it. Yet, they feel that it takes too much time
to play with the University squad when they can play with theit
own local group which practices once a week somewhere near
home and where they "can play with boys then know and have
always played with. /
A Player Has. His Reasons
Maybe it could be^ considered this way. If a fellow wants
to play basketball for the University, it isn't all for the old
alma mammy that he is going to play. It's mostly for his own
enjoyment that he plays. Besides, he knows that he has a
better chance of getting his name mentioned in The Ubyssey or
even a picture in the campus sheet than he has of getting it in
the downtown sheets.
In other words, he will play for the University simply for
the glory in it as well as for his own love for the sport and his
desire to play for the Blue and Gold of UBC.

Negotiations have finally boon completed for the proposed Varsity- Nanaimo soccer exhibition. Soccer
manager I. M. (Bud) Harford has
made arrangements for the game with
the Coast League club to be played
on Sunady, February 9 at Nanaimo.
Indications are that the two clubs
will be very closely matched, for last
Saturday, the Nanaimo aggregation
was beaten by the North Shore Reds
by a score of 4-1. In the semi final
of the Mainland cup ties, Varsity
dropped a 4-2 decision to the same
powerful Reds.

tween the winning squad of the Victoria league and the top scorers of
tho Vancouver rugby loop. This is
the second year in succession that the
Bay's have been on top in Victoria
and it's no news that the Thunderbirds have been at the top in Vancouver rugby circles both years.
Saturday's game will be the opening battle in a long uphill grind which
will see Thunderbirds playing almost
every week from now till the end of
March. On February 8 the McKech-
nie Cup tilts will be In full play as
Thunderbirds are hosts again in the
stadium. The first away game will
be played in Victoria on March 8 and
will be the final Cup effort of the
year. The following week Coach Roy
Haines' boys will head for California,
and after playing two exhibition tilts
on foreign soil will return to slip in
a few lectures before the game with
the Californians on March 26.
Tentatively planned for the last
McKechnie Cup game is a four-team
invasion of Victoria, when the last
game of the series will see Crimson
Tide, the rep team of Victoria, matched
against Varsity at McDonald Park.
Although last year's invasion ended
in a mere infiltration, sports enthusiasts are mapping plans for a renewal
of the famous invasions of pre-war
days. A large number of fans are
expected to accompany the two basketball and two rugby teams to the
Island if transportation can be arranged.

The Senior B's seem to have a
knack for getting themselves involved in narrow margin contests.
Monday night they eked out a 23-22

the damper on a th.'ee-game losing

in the hand sof the authorities, entailing a corresponding individual entry
of. well over 150 natators. Eliminations will perforce have to be run off
in all events, excepting the relay

list, and these have been slated to start
ahead of the main attractions, at about
7:00 p.m.
Customary predictions have proved
fruitless among the campus betting

slashed most of the championship
punch from the Joker aggregation

top-flight aquamen, Ellis, Atwell,

viewpoint, they again look like the
squad to beat.
But, as the Gillette radio sportcasters
used to say before a Greco fight, "It's
anybody's brawl."
The Thunderbird hoopla artists won't be playing before
their enthusiastic fans at home this weekend. In fact, they won't
be playing any team at all. Basketball will still be the order of
the day however as Coach Bob Osborne plans to put the boys
