Second Chance for
Martin as Appeal
Reaches High Court
Gordon Martin, UBC law
graduate, still unable to enter
into legal practice, is going to
have a "second chance" when
his appeal to Supreme Court
comes up January 10.
' The short, sandy-haired airforce
veteran, who graduated from UBC Law
School May, 1948, was refused admission into the bar by the B.C. Law
Society because of his suspected
Communistic beliefs.
At that time he announced that he
might have to work In the Nanaimo
coal mines to support his wife and
two young children.
He, his counsel, Harry R. Bray, and"
John Stanton, member of the firm
which had articled Martin, announced
they would contest the decision.
C. M. O'Brlan, law Society treasurer, said that the benchers had
turned down Martin's application only
after having used all the discretionary
powers of which they were capable.
He staled also that Martin knew that
he had been rejected solely because
he was a member of tho Labor Progressive Party, for whom he had
been a candidate in the last provincial election.

The Ubyssey flatly denied that he had

his resenting the formation of the

"I deeply resented." declared Dr.
E'lack, "the insinuation made last
vear by Dr. Endicott. that the University UN Society was not wrrkimj
for peace, and that it was therefore
necessary to form an auxiliary organization qn the campus."

Former Student Reports on Cambridge
'Beet Bull, and Beefs Exchange' Make Foi Fnendly Atmosphere
Arts '49, UBC
The Cambridge University Canada
Club was founded with the purpose of
permitting students in Cambridge to
meet in a "Canadian atmosphere" and
exchange "beer, bull and beefs."
This year, however, the purpose has
been expanded' to include the dispensing of information and advice to
anyone interested in travelling or living in Canada, and more Important,
the promotion of exchange studentships With Canadian universities.
In previous years the last two services have been performed entirely
by the Canada Club's perennial member 'Dr. John Grace, fellow of Caius
College and a UBC graduate of 1926.
To aid Dr. Grace in -these services,
the Canada Club has first of all set
up a board of "experts," composed
of Canadian students in Cambridge
who are well informed on some phase
of Canadian  life or business.
For example, C. D. Ellis (McGill.
Trinity College and McMaster>, this
year's secretary, is a theology student
in Selwyn College who has done
mission work at Moose Factory on
James Bay and is particularly well
informed on the conditions that a
British theologian might expect to
meet in his field in Canada.
Thus, with this board of experts in
existence, the inquiring British student
may possibly be directed to a Canadian who can answer the Britisher's
questions from first hand knowledge.
The Canada Club's put-pose is not to
encourage mass emigration to Canada
but merely to i*ivo future visitors such
relevant information as: side arms arc
no longer necessary in thc West.
Because more subtle methods are
required for the promotion of exchange studentships, the Canada Club's
plans along this tine are very general
and really amount to conscientious
moral support for Dr. Grace in his
The plan for this support calls for
,i serious attempt to make Cambridge
favorably aware of the existence of
Canada and Canadian .students. An
open  nicotine; each  term  'three  times
a year) i.s one way in which this aim
i.s  being  accomplished.
An aiithoi iative speaker on Canada,
distinguished guests and the general
public are inv'ted to these meetings.
The meeting for the Michaelmas term
which is to be held in St. John's College on the evening of December 2 will j
he addressed by Professor Brogan of
Petei'hotiso College who will speak on
"The North Atlantic Triangle."
Professor E'rogan is well-known for
his work with the BBC in their trans-
Atlantic   broadcasts.   Included   in   the
guests of tha! evening are the thirty
Fulbright scholars at Cambridge.
Arrangements are being made now
to have the meetings in the Lent and
Easter terms addressed by die Hon.
D. Nilgress. the High Commissioner
for Canada, and Lady Tweedsmuir,
If the Canada Club with its forty
members can be as half as successful
with its efforts in the future as Dr.
Grace ha.s been with his efforts in the
past, then its existence will have been
justified, Page 2

Kiddies Be Fleeced?
Rumours of card playing for money
throughout the campus have led President
MacKenzie to issue a quiet warning that such
action will not be tolerated. His written war-
ning refers only to the Armories, where
card-playing has been ruled out by an agreement with the Department of National Defence.
But we imagine the administration is
none too Sappy about gambling all over the
campus. This journal has heard reports of
atakti running as high as one hundred dollars
In iome games.
Gambling is an offence under the AMS
Code — but the code has never been ade-
quately enforced.
i     Whether  or not gambling is morally
sound is a question beyond the scope of the
Ubyssey. But with stakes running as high as
reported, it. is entirely possible that some
gullible students may be fleeced of their entire funds. When students are fleeced, vociferous parents are likely to complain loudly
and the reputation of the university suffers
As long as UBC is financed from public
funds, anything which/is likely to lower the
hame of the university in the eyes of the public — however unthinking the public may
be — must be avoided.
We conclude then that it will prpbably
be better for all concerned if gambling on
the campus is stopped.

How Retarded Can We Get?
It has come to our attention that women's
dormitories — mono-sexual establishments
complete, with house-mothers and assorted
;relics of mid-Vlctorianism — are soon to raise
,thelr monastic heads on the campus.
Nq one will dispute the need for more
and better housing accommodations on the
eampus. But many will dispute institutions
steeped in artificial mono-sexuality.
No one but a mid-Victorian would argue
.that such establishments are necessary to the
healthy development of students. In fact most
contemporary sociologists would be Inclined
to argue that far sounder development would
result from the intermingling of students of
both sexes in residences such as Acadia Camp.
The establishment of women's dormitories
along the lines suggested should be fought
vigorously now before much time, effort, and
money result in a victory for the most narrow-minded and unthinking elements ln our
society. We do not want to turn around and
march fifty years backwards.

Dear Cousin Judy:
How awfully kind of you to send me
that Canasta set for Christmas. But I felt
terrible when I opened it, really  I felt that
maybe you thought I was hinting that night
when   you   were   over   two   weeks   before
Christmas, for I remember mentioning that
seven people had given me Canasta sets for
my birthday in November. Like I said that
night, you can always use another Canasta
set, yes sir. Ha ha. It will certainly come in
handy next time we invite 50 people in to play-
Canasta. I'm saving your set for just such
an occasion. But really, I feel terrible about
having ever mentioned it to you.
Hoping you are the same
Dear Uncle Jake:
Thank you so much for sending me such
an original gift. Nobody else—not one—sent
me a crank for my car. I laughed when I
opened it, for I remember driving over to
your place last summer, just a week before
I traded the car in for a motorcycle, and
getting stuck outside your place. I remember
how you said, "Why don't you try crankin'
her?" and I said, "Because you can't crank
this kind of a car."
So naturally I was tickled pink when I
opened up the parcel from you and found a
crank inside. I laughed and laughed. If I
ever buy another car, I'll certainly make sure
it's a model that can be cranked.  Ha  ha.
The family laughed too. One of them discovered that the crank is just the thing for
shaking down the furnace in the morning.
They told me I should have charge of furnace-
shaking operations every single morning from
now on, and most of them are still laughing.
I can see where I'm going to have a "cranky"

thing to have a nice long newspaper subscription all ready and paid up. If your name
ever appears in the paper, please write to
me, and I will look it up. Be sure to say
which issue it is in, as there will be quite
a stack of newspapers on our magazine rack
after five years or so. Oh, yes, they've started
coming in already, and I never miss them.
I've been so busy over the holidays I
haven't had time to read any of them, but—

when I sent you that tie, I said to myself,
"Well, at last I found somebody (you) who
will appreciate a fine tie like that."
I had forgotten then that you had sent
it to me the Christmas before. No wonder
I thought of you when I saw it hanging
in the attic, eh? I was thinking I might wear
il sometime when I go out somewhere, but
then I thought there is such a thing as overdoing a joke. I hung it back in the attic.
By the way, George, just in case I don't

"no". And, said this survey, lt is
because women of America do not

To understand about cologne and

original blend of essential oils determines the strength of the liquid scent.
Perfume is the strongest — has the
least amount of the carrying agent.
Next in strength is toilet water. Cologne is usually the lightest form of
liquid fragrance. Cologne and toilet
water, because they are lighter In
strength than perfume, are used on
the body as a foundation of scent
A woman wears perfume and perfume products for a combination of
reasons: to express her personality,
to make her feel feminine and wanted;
to surround herself In an aura of
fragrance to attract other people. Because American women still use perfume and perfume products too sparingly, too many of them do net derive
the full joy of scent. Perfume is an
ephemeral accessory — a hidden accessory. It is part of a woman's everyday costume. Perfume is the "final
touch," like a spanking clean kerchief in the upper pocket of a man's
jacket. It is the accent that points
up the costume as a whole.
One of the strongest of the senses
is that of smell. It can repulse and
it can attract, This, then, is one of
the fundamental reasons that men and
women enjoy an attractive scent.
Fragrance gives a woman a sense of
inner feminine security. This sounds
precious but it is true. It makes her
feel more attractive and, in truth,
she actually is more attractive. It
surrounds her in an aura of femininity whether she selects a mysterious
type of fragrance, a highly sophisticated scent or a light flowery perfume. It is part of the "face" she
presents to her public. If she uses
enough perfume, she derives'her full
enjoyment from it — in being able
to smell it herself, in giving to thoso
she meets an attractive "aura." Women
should realize that thc kind or nature

When a cologne first was brought
on the market, it meant the citrus type
of fragrant "water" first created in
the city of Cologne, Germany. When
shaving lotions first were brought
out, they too contained this citrus
ingredient. It was not until the late
1920's that the product now known
and accepted as cologne came Into
being. The first of these were called
"perfume colognes" to distinguish
them from the citrus type. This was
a misnomer to a certain extent because too many twomen thought that
if it were a "perfume cologne" it
was almost as strong as perfume,
which certainly is not the case. There
still are many citrus type colognes
on the market which enjoy great
Their use? As an after bath rub —
the freshness of the fragrance is particularly appealing first thing in the

"Acid Test" for 'Birdmen

most outstanding centres on the
coast. McLaughlin potted 1535
points in his last three seasons
with the Lutes.
Lack of Practice
Causes Chief Loss
To Eagletimers
Inability to put the ball
through the hoop brought UBC
Chiefs to defeat in a basketball
game with Eagle Time at' the

Although the Chiefs outran and outplayed the Transfermen, they couldn't
sink their shots, losing the game by a
39-30 score.

into the clear but failed to sink the

Pacific Lutheran Play Friday;
CWCE Rated to End Up Second Best
Thunderbird hoopers make their conference debut this
weekend when the 'Bird cagemen clash with tiie Pacific Lutheran Gladiators Friday night at 8:00 p.m. and then go on to meet
the Wildcats of Central Washington College of Education,' at
the same time Saturday evening on the UBC maple courts.

series of the conference season as they play the two teams currently rated to come out second and third in the conference
Friday,   January   6,   1950
Things to Watch
Associate  Editor—Sandy   Manson
In the conference opener for the
'Birds they will meet-the team rated
to place just behind Eastern . and
Central in the league standings.
Last year the Lutes were tied for
second place in the final count and
this year they expect to give Central
a tough time in the battle for that
spot.' '"tjf|^
Perhaps the most important reason
for the Gladiator high hopes is found
in the person of one Harry McLaughlin, a man who is in his -third year
with the Lutes who, for three successive years has been chosen as all-con-
ference centre.
McLaughlin is recognized by sporting circles on the coast as being one of
•he most outstanding men in basketball.
In play so far this year, the lofty,
heavily built, six foot three centre
has maintained a play average of
15.3 points per game.
In fact in three years of play with
the Wildcats, the capable star of the
Lutes has garnered the amazing total
of 1535 points for the old Alma Mater.
Hoop followers state that if McLaughlin keeps on at the same pace
he has maintained in the past and this
season he will be dubbed as the most
prolific scorer and the most outstanding player on the Pacific coast.
However, despite all rumours, McLaughlin is not the only player on
the Gladiator roster. Close behind
the lanky centre is Gene Lungaard, a
six foot two play maker who manages
to. set McLauglin up almost at will.
.     \
Lungaard is a guard who moves between the guard and forward slots in
actual play in order to make his
talent as a play-maker as effective
as possible.
The way things look, the 'Birds are
going to have  to have a very good

Shown Yesterday

the guards screen tiie forward's

guards criss-cross in front of the
centre and block out the forward's
checks. The centre passes to a forward

Optional forms of this play are for
both guards to cut over to tha same
corner to form a double screen for
the forward's tong shot, or for one
of the guards to cut back In front
of the centre to receive a pass.

a post man the 'Birds use a roil, tha
