NFCUS — Pros  and  Cons
In promoting a new, effective
and    representative    Canadian
student    organization,    Student!
Council recommends to the stu-'
dents that UBC withdraw from
NFCUS for these reasons:
(1) The present setup does
not give UBC fair representation.
(2) High administration costs
in the existing organization.
(3) Withdrawal from NFCUS
provides bargaining power impossible to use from within the
(4) Present NFCUS policy is
too ambitious and does not permit concentration on matters of
real benefit to Canadian students.
Under the present arrangement all members of NFCUS are
given an equal vote. This means
that the voting power of a college of 200 students is equal to
that of UBC, with its 6500 students. As long as this situation
prevails, UBC can not expect
to have a fair say in such matters s the appropriation of the
budget, to which we are the
largest single contributor. Since
small colleges outnumber the
larger by 15 to 5, this is not
likely to change.
$2400 of UBC's $3000 plus
contribution is used up in the
administration of NFCUS. Obviously, these high costs indicate that a reform in operating
policy is necessary. Such expenditures   as   NFCUS   representa
tive John Sherman's recent
flight from Edmonton to Vancouver, in order to speak at
our general meeting, do little
to encourage confidence in such
a reform.
NFCUS projects aimed at student benefit have ranged all
the way from lowered city bus
fares and movie discounts to
(government scholarships. Unfortunately, such an expanded
program has not permitted real
concentration on any of these
projects with the result that
very little in the way of tangible benefit to students has
been^ achieved. Council feels
that a new and efficient organization, by a concentrated effort
on   fewer  and  more important
issues,    will    succeed    where
NFCUS has failed.
Nothing Is easier, when the
going is tough, than to say
"Let's chuck the whole idea,
and try for something better."
It's easy to say, but it's far harder to do.
Both sides in the withdrawal
controversy agree that a national
students' organization is desirable, and both agree that
NFCUS has many, many faults.
But instead of attempting to reform it, Students' Council wants
to simply chuck it, and form
a national students' organization
of their own.
This is more easily said than
done; the difficulties of setting*
up a national organization that
could fulfill its function even
as well as NFCUS does are enor*
mous. There are nearly 100
universities in Canada, and to
date, only four have said they
interested in the plan.
Withdrawal from NFCUS
means a gamble, with the collective interests of over 40,000
students as the stakes. And the
odds are stacked against UBC.
Give NFCUS another chance,
we say. Let UBC delegates go
to next Fall's conference with
concrete proposals for reform.
If they're not adopted — and
there's a good chance that they
will—then by all means withdraw. But UBC should look
before it leaps into isolationism.

Banquet  Held  For California S
Retiring Dean Angus

Henry Forbes Angus, retiring Dean of Graduate Studies,
Professor and Head, Department of Economics, Political Science
and Sociology, will be honoured at a banquet Wednesday,
March 28th at 6 p.m. in Brock Hall.

body. Because of the rapid approach of exams the banquet
will be over by 8 p.m.
In Dean Angus, UBC is losing
one of the outstanding Canadians living today. Considered
to have few peers "in his chosen
fields of economics and political
science, Dean Angus has been
associated with UBC since 1919.
Dean Angus was educated at
McGill. B.A.; and Oxford. B.A.,
B.C L. and M.A. In 1949, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Canadian public life,
McGill awarded him an honor- \
ary Doctor of laws ((LL.D).
After serving in the Canadian
infantry as a captain in World;
War 1, Dean Angus came to
UBC as an assistant professor;
in 1919. In 1920 he was called
to the Bar in B.C.; in 1930 he
was made Professor and Head:
of the Department of Economics, I
Political Science and Sociology:!
and in 1948 named Dean of the1
Faculty of Graduate Studies.       j
His    public   service    includes
Public Utilities Commission.
Decided  By
UBC students today sit in
judgment on the fate of the
National Federation of Canadian
University Students.
Students will decide by referendum today whether or not
UBC should withdraw from the
National Organization.
Students' Council has given
students   two   alternate  choices j the World Cup was won by one
this  time  by  the Bears,
The Bears won the first two
matches in Berkeley 15-0 and
11-9, and Albert Laithwaite's
Bird's hopes for a big win to
whittle down Cal's margin before the final contest which goes
Saturday at 2 p.m.
If Varsity's last performance,
a 19-0 victory over Vancouver
Reps, and the results of the
final two games in Vancouver
a year ago are any indication,
the 17 point lead of the Bears
could disappear very quickly.
Last year, Cal held an 18 point
margin after the two contests
in Berkeley, but Varsity thumped them 18-3 and 16-14 in the
two return matches at UBC. A.s
had  happened the year before,
However Dean Angus will j
probably be remembered best
for his amazingly clear mind
and piercing wit that delighted
the thousands of UBC students
who passed  through his classes.
The Publications Board Banquet will be held at the
Wbite Spot, 25th and Cambie. Friday night at 6:30. A
party will follow. It is essential that all Ubyssey, Totem,
Pique* and Raven staffers who intend to come sign the
list in the Pub office TODAY and indicate whether they
are going to bring a partner. Tickets are S1.75 per head.
Messrs. Ames. Gibbotw and Lee Davenport are urgently
requested to be in Bad1*.'* <rff»ce at noon today.
in the controversial issue:
(1) Students can vote to withdraw from NFCUS, in order
to form a more streamlined substitute organization, or
(2) They can vote to remain
in the National Organization, in
an attempt to reform it into a
more desirable students' organization.
If students vote to withdraw,
the 50 cents per student that|
now goes to NFCUS would be reallocated for the purpose of hold-1
ing an initial conference of Can- j
adian Universities to work out!
a substitute for NFCUS. i
AMS   cards   will   be   needed

campus points. I

Swnjinf Start
No   Tears
We take our leave today with 66 editions of The Ubyssey
behind us. We can't quite muster up a tear over the last issue
and we know you certainly can't. Looking back over the year
it seems to us that perhaps we were too dull. When a campus,
such as UBC, is contentedly conservative the paper should
be a little zany and above all thought provoking. But then
Father Pappert termed The Ubyssey a "vile rag" so maybe
we weren't too dull. If Father Pappert and those who think
like him had given us their stamp of approval we would have
done some fast stocktaking.
In a way we measured our success by the number of complaints we received. A university student body is theoretically
the most critical audience in the world. If everybody had been
happy with the paper we would have counted our job a resounding failure. Some students liked our reprints from other
journals on serious subjects, and complained because we were
too frivilous. Many others complained bitterly about our serious
side and demanded more campus news and above all more
humour. Still others thought the paper should have been just
one great big "tw^en classes' notice. As a result we tried to
have something for everyone. Maybe we succeeded in pleasing
r.6 one but that is still the way we think a campus newspaper
•should be run.
Many clubs had their notices left out; many times we had
our facts wrong; many times our humour degenerated into
plain dirt. We don't apologize; we just point out that we are
human and that a newspaper is the product of human beings—
a fact many people tend to forget.
We, the editors, realize too the myth of our positions. We
fet ourselves up as tin gods and pass comment daily in our
•editorial columns on the passing parade as if we were omnipotent. If by the end of the year you haven't been irritated
by at least one of our editorials, you can't read. But if we
have succeeded in provoking thought and the expression of
opinion we count our efforts as not wasted.
But as we said we can't quite muster up a tear now that
our job is over. We are tired of complaints; tired of trying to
please 6300 critics; tired of trying to arouse interest in one
■thing or another: tired of passing judgment and tired of sitting
in class and not having thc foggiest notion of what the lecturer
is talking about.
We enjoyed publishing The Ubyssey and we hope you enjoyed reading it.

Editor,  The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
After reading your editorial,
"A Sober Look at Liquor." If
we are to believe the plebiscite
taken following the Stevens Report, we must assume that there
are a great many supporters of
liquor in B. C; but surely,
they must have better propaganda than is found in your
editorial. I would like to take
issue with you on some errors
in your argument which are
too glaring to overlook.
In the first place, I would
disagree with your claim that
liquor should be retailed to the
consumer like any other product; you yourself contradict
this claim farther along in your
editorial. Liquor never*has had
this privilege in modern days
because, like any other habit-
forming depressant, it cannot
be released without certain controls. The general public has
not at any time, and certainly
not now, shown itself responsible enough to exert self-control in the use of such products.
Would you argue that heroin
should be sold over the grocers'
counter?. Yet, there are countless thousands more Canadians
debilitated by alcohol addiction than by any drug addiction.
In the second place, you
speak of the astronomical profits received by the government
from liquor revenue and you
insinuate that such is clear profit. I would recommend that
you check up on the costs to
the government and taxpayer
for expenditures directly related to the results of alcohol
consumption. If you do so, you
will find that revenue from
alcohol sales not only does not
meet these costs, it falls far
short and the taxpayers, drinkers and non-drinkers, must
foot the rest of the bill.
You point out the pitiful
slate of alcoholics, and for
once you are right. I feel, however, that your argument is
illogical when in one breath
you condemn the government
for not keeping liquor away
from alcoholics, and in the next
breath you condemn it because it doesn't make more
opportunity for them to get it.
(grocery stores, yet). You speak
as though alcoholics were born
that way. For your information, they were not. They were
once moderate, social-drinkers
who never intended to be alcoholics. Yet, according to
latest estimates, close to one
out of every ten drinkers is.
or will be, an alcoholic. In Ontario, after the passing of the
Bill in 1946 that allowed liquor
outlets similar to those sought
in B. C. alcohol consumption
enlarged their production capacity by 50 per cent. The result
was a proportionate rise in
tho number of actual and potential alcoholics. If medical
authorities were to combat an
outbreak of typhoid fever by
treating the cases as they developed without attempting to
find and remove the source,
they would be counted incompetent fools. Yet, when the
churches and other Christian
agencies, who in the end are
the ones most concerned
about the broken wrecks of
the liquor trade, seek for control of the source of alcoholism, you refer to them as "reactionaries who are 50 years
out of date."
Your  idea  of   liquor  reform
is: increase the number of outlets, relax the laws, and ALL
the liquor evils will be eradicated.   Logical?  Bro-ther!
Yours truly,
C. H. Lee,
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Concerning the articles on
religion currently appearing in
The Ubyssey:
The need for religion is an
internal psychological balance
between conscious values and
unconscious, seemingly collective, requirements. The psychic
need of balance of the ordinary
man does not always find expression in ritual and creeds
which have become too elaborate and too refined to come
within the boundaries of his
capacities. Orthodox religion
has congealed into externals
and formalities. In this token,
therefore, religion is wholly
subjective and cannot be based
on imagined external absolutes.
A. D. Hamilton,
3rd  Arts.
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
This letter responds to the
unfair, narrow-minded appraisal by your paper of a group
of fraternity members from the
University of Alabama. The
authors of this journal show a
complete ignorance of the
Southern Negro problem; an
ignorance which is doubtless
mirrored by a large percentage
of the student body.
The demonstration, which
took place as the result of a
traitorous court order allowing
the entrance of a female Negro
into our placid university (who
can say where this may end?),
was the only way majority of
our better students could make
felt their horror of this yankee
attack on the democratic, majority-rule principles of our
blessed land and on our God-
given right to educate our children in the way we please. I
feel this display of courage by
a thousand of our better students will make clear the feelings of all the gallant Southern
people. We like to see the Negroes get their rights, but we
are not afraid to take action
when they make trouble or
when we know it is time to
put them back in their place.
A Negro is fine in his place,
we are the first to admit that.
But let's face it. Negroes are
just not university material.
Not being as highly evolved as
white men (not in the Darwinian sense, of course) they cannot be expected to have any
real Christian moral sense, or,
by   the   same   token,   any   con
ception of our American
(Southern) way of life. Do not
infer from this that we hate
Negroes—far from it! We
know they cannot help being
what they are and we like to
feel that we are their benefac-
tors, benevolent when they are
good, but able to take strong
hand when they get out of line
to teach them what is right and
what is wrong.
Some of the demonstrators
were, of course, just good-
natured students who were
merely there to have some fun
—and it was good fun for everybody. They were expressing
their disapproval in a humorous way. I am told that the
behaviour of students yesterday
was not as violent as that described and that the whole business was reasonably orderly.
The vast majority of the better
students behaved exactly as I
would hope they would do. I
would like to offer my congrat?
ulations to them.
Now you can  see that the
Tuscaloosa rally was completely
justified not only for our sake
but also for the safety and future well-being of our Negroes.
Glad   to   have   been   able   to
clear up this subject for you.
Your Southern Friend,

Invisible   Empire,   American Citizen,
Editor,  The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I note in the report of the
appointment of the new Dean
and Directors of the College
of Education in the March 9th
issue of The Ubyssey, this
statement in heavy type: "The
old Normal School buildings
will remain in use until a new
building is erected on the campus. Courses leading to the degree of Bachelor of Education
will be given at the new college."
I regret that this statement
is in error and would appreciate it if you would point out
that the University has every
intention of establishing in
September in temporary buildings on this campus all accommodation for the College of Education, in which case thc old
Normal School buildings will
not be used next year for
teacher training. All courses
given this September in the
College .will lead to the degree
of Bachelor of Education.
I would appreciate, for the
sake of enrolment, if this could
bo clarified in a future issue
of your paper.
Yours   very   truly,

Thunderbird stalwarts of 1952

Bill Kushnir, an all-Evergreen
Conference tackle in 1953 was
added to the sparsly populated
(as far as Canadian talent is
concerned) Lions squd. |

Birds by pouncing on the countless Varsity fumbles.
Bill played for Calgary Stam-
peders in 1954 but dropped
out of football at the end of
the season to concentrate on
teaching. On the side, Kushnir
coached the Lester Pearson foot- j
ball team which finished near.
