Fire Dept.
Tested By
False Alarms
Committee Checks;
Campus Still Blazes
The mettle of the UBC Fire
Department was tested by
puckish Professor J. Young,
head of the president's Fire
Prevention Committee in a
false alarm turned in on last
Friday morning.
The firemen fell out of the Fire
Hall in just 40 seconds in a carefully checked test by the Fire Committee.
At 12:31 a.m. the alarm sounded
and inside ot 2 minutes and 31 seconds

Another false alarm was turned in
on Thursday at 11 a.m.
This one came from the Physics
Building and arose out of an overloaded circuit, according to electricians.
Again, the firemen arrived on the
scene In record time. Three minutes
after the alarm sounded the blue-boys
V/ere on the spot.
However, on Open House UBC
DID have a fire.
The floor of the Architecture
Building had been painted with a
fish oil base paint, in preparation
for Open House.
At 7 a.m. on Saturday an alert
maintenance man spotted a small
blaze in the room containing the
Architecture  Department's  display.
A small square yard area of new
planking was necessary to repair the
damage in the floor.
The odor of fish hung over the
exhibit all day, anxious exhibitors
tried to shoo out the smell all day
find simultaneously shoo in the visitor..
Spontaneous combustion was credited with being the cause of the blaze.
body Tuesday for permission to organize on the dampus.
Tom Waldon, leader of the group
which hopes to establish the peace
group here, has been assured that discussion of the controversial issue
will be first on the "new business"
agenda at Tuesday's general Alma
Mater Society meeting.
Waldon and other peace council
supporters agreed to submit the issue
to the general meeting as a compromise with Student Council Monday
night. t
Student Council several weeks ago
refused the group permission to form
on the campus.
The Peace Council backers had first
demanded either a referendum vote
among students or a special general
meeting and presented a "protest"
petition of 300 names to support their
proposal.      *
Because of Brousson's promise to
bring the issue bjfore Tuesday's
general meeting, however, peace
council supporters agreed to leave
the decision over until then.

Yets Blamed
As Increases
Fall Through
Questionaires Go
Student veterans on the campus were blamed for the failure of Branch 72, Canadian
Legion, to press for an increase
in grants this year, according
to Mike Lakes, retiring president of the branch.
Presenting his annual report to a
general meeting of the Legion Wednesday noon, Lakes stated that response to the grants questionnaire circulated last term had been disappointing.
Although forms were submitted to
all student veterans at the university,
only 766 were returned, he said. As a
result, the grants and gratuities committee decided that "veterans on this
campus were not sufficiently interested."
He emphasized that it was not the
Legion executive nor the grants committee who had dropped the grants
campaign, "but the student veterans,
by their apathy."
Lakes said the E'ranch was by no
means complacent about the fact
that the membership was down. Work
being done by the membership committee to improve the situation would
be continued through the summer
months, he said. However, the Branch
was still in good financial shape.
Turning to the brighter side, the
retiring president said the Legion's
housing comittee had placed a total
of 116 families during the year. This
included the re-uniting of four families with twins, one from as far away
a.s England.
New president of the Branch is John
Haar, third year artsman and first
vice-president on the retiring executive.
Haar was elected by acclamation
to succeed Lakes. New first vice-
president, Marv Lundeen, was also
elected   by   acclamation.
Remaining executive posts were filled at Wednesday's meeting. Successful candidates were Roy Widmeyer,
second vice-president, Charles Perrin,
treasurer, Alf Wescott, secretary and
Ann Robertson, Murray Ryan and
Rod MacDonald, executive members.
Delegates elected to represent the
Branch at the Provincial Command
convention in Victoria were Haar,
Lakes, MacDonald, Bob Thorpe and
Barney Russ. More will be selected
if the quota allotted the Branch allows.
Meeting decided to support tho
navy in its fight for prize money
frod World War II when it approved a
resolution to be presented at the
provincial convention that the Dominion Government distribute prize
money to navy personnel as originally intended, instead of to the navy's
benevolent fund.
A sesond resolution Urged that the
Army-Benevolent Fund Committee
"give immediate aid to the children
of deceased or disabled army veterans
lo enable a fall education for such
It was pointed out that time was
running out for such children, who
required the money for their education now.
Tentative support was given to a
resolution urging the Provincial Government to reconsider the application
ol a group uf veterans for a brewery
licence. Final decision rests with the
executive, pending submission of full
details of the matter by the mover
of lhe resolution.

Is On lime
At approximately 10:00. A.M. last
Wednesday, a group of people standing around a printing press in a
local establishment watched a pressman pull a switch that started the
gigantic press rolling. To most of
them, that simple little act signified
the high point of their last year
in the Publications Board. The 1949
Totem had gone to press.
To   Editor   Dick   Blockberger,   it
signified the end of hours of gruel
ling work, preparing over '200 pages
of copy. To Sports Editor Fred
Moonen it meant the end of his
grind over the pages of sports copy.
To students on the campus, it meant
the fulfillment of the Publications
Board promise — "The '48 was very
late, but the ''19 will be on time."
It is expected that the 1949 Totem
will hit the campus approximately
April   15th.
Due to the restrictions imposed by
AMS Treasurer Paul Plant's "Aus
terity Budget," only 2600 copies of
the annual publication are being
run off the presses. Most of these
copies have already been purchased
by students who have gambled with
lhe Pub that the book would be
out on time. The few extra copies
left over will bes old over the counter alter regular subscribers have
received their copies.
Students wishing to place an advance subscription may still do so
at tl?e AMS offices in Brock Hall.

$300 Loot Taken By
Selective Thief
There is selective farming, selective

eating and now there is a new one to
add to the list—selective thieving.
This came to light during a police
report Wednesday.
Police reported that a selective
thief had broken into the store shed
of Barr and Anderson, plumbing contractors on UBC's new Applied Science building and selected over $300
in scarce tools.
The thief reportedly forced the lock
on the shed door and selected only
the tools he needed.

The blacksmith of 1889 forged a great variety of tides with hammer and anvil and
the strength of his brawny arm. Today a giant /b!|g hammer rains 50-ton blows on
the anvil. A hammer made of ordinary metals coffmot stand the strain or vibration.
So Nickel Steel and Nickel Cast Iron are used to pvide extra strength and durability.
Nickel Brings Dolkrs to Canada
Since more than ninety per cent of the
Nickel produced in Canada is sold to the
United States and other countries, it brings
a constant flow of dollars back, to Canada.
In fact, Canada's Nickel industry is one of
our chief sources of U.S. dollars so essential
at the present time to maintain our foreign
trade and make available products not
produced in this country.
Th<f dollars help pay the wages of the
14,<fo Nickel employees, and help provide
the follars which make it possible to pay
milims in freight to Canadian railways, to
buyimber, steel, coal, machinery and sup-
pliejamounting to many millions each year.

In Touch
With Ron Grant
Still wiping the silt from their eyes and the sweat'from
their brows, Varsity's Thunderbird ruggermen, Sunday arrived
home after their two-game southern tiff with Califfnia's
Golden Bears.
The games were played under chaotic conditions in the
mud lined swimming pool the Berkleyites lovingly refet to as
Gilmour Stadium, but which Varsity coach Albert LaitJwaite
dubbed "the better 'ole".
Rumor has it in the South, that the wily "Doc" H,dson,
Golden Bear coach, in co-operation with the Florida Chamber
of Commerce pre-arranged the mighty cloudburst.
Similar Downpour
Typical of the California prexy and undoubtedly trtie, the
charge is further borne out by the fact that last ye£, the
Australian Wallabies, playing in place of the "Birds" becjuse of
an eleventh hour schedule change, were greeted by a jimilar
As a result even the mighty Aussies found the gang sc
tough that they eked out only a last-minute three-point victory.
The excess avoirdupois of the California players; when
combined with the mud and a slippery ball is a tremendous
advantage against a lighter team such as the "Birds", id spite
of the fact that some of the sideline generals would hkve us
believe it makes no difference.
In last week's southern encounters the vastly outweighec
Thunderbird scrum played magnificently. However, in the firs-
game the weight factor proved too great an advantage. With
men like 255-pound forward Hank Wright leading the Californic
pack,"the 'Birds suffered an 8-3 defeat, their first in over a year.
The second tilt played under similar conditions, thougl"
not in an actual downpour saw the 'Birdmen fight the Bean
to a standstill, gaining a 0-0 draw.
No Try Allowed
The fierceness of the encounter was climaxed by a Cali
fornia forward rush which actually surged over the VarsiU
line, but was bodily hurled back before the ball could bc
grounded for the try.
No respite lies in store for the 'Birds however, for this
Saturday they are pitted against a much improved Vancouvei
Lion fifteen, in a McKechnie cup tilt.
The game which is scheduled for the Stadium at 2:30 is oi
the crucial variety, for a win for the Thunderbirds will cinch
the coveted silverware for the fifth straight year.
The following Thursday and Saturday, March 24th and
26th, the 'Birds play a return engagement against the Golden
The two encounters should provide the campus with some
of the most thrilling rugby seen hereabouts for many years.
World Cup At Stake
If the Varsity fifteen are to retain their present hold on the
World Cup, they have to take both of these contests.
Coach Laithwaite has promised a double victory contingent
only on the weatherman giving his charges half a break.
Lectures are tentatively cancelled for the Thursday noon
game, and there are no lectures Saturday afternoon, so here is
your chance to "Back the Pack" against the invading California
Golden Bears.
Arrow Transfer Donates
Truck To Help Parade
Earl Butterworth, parade marshall of the Evergreen
Bowl, didn't know how he could engage three trucks and
seven convertibles for the half-time entertainment at
Thursday's game, gratis.
Finally, he decided to ask the Arrow Transfer Company
if they would "donate" three of their large trucks, explaining that the Alma Mater Society was undergoing an austerity program. Much to his surprise, they immediately consented. /
With the truck situation solved, Earl then had to face
the problem of finding seven convertibles in which to put
the campus beauties.
Now as Monsieur Butterworth has an "educated" eye
for the fairer sex, he immediately resolved that this was a
do or die situation. Being a true blue person, Butterworth
produced . . . three trucks, seven convertibles and a bevy
of beauties to add to his list!

Robertson Calls First
Practice For Baseball
Tentatively planning a two-game schedule with the Western
Washington baseball squad, UBC enthusiasts are holding their
first practice this weekend to organize a team capable of play
amongst city-league groups as well as American diamond-
mites. <••  -
Order   Yours Now
Coaches Sandy Robertson and
Harry Franklin have called the first
workout tor UBC's baseball team this
Saturday at 1:00 p.m. on tlie UBC
grass hockey field.
It is anticipated that between fifty
and seventy-five Thunderbird hopefuls will turn out for the initial
practice, which should give Robertson
plenty  of material  to choose  from.
The Birds will have a limited
schedule of two games this year
against Western Washington, but if
there are enough ball players available during the summer months, tho
team will probably round out its
schedule with exhibition games

When the University of California Golden Bears come to
lown to play rugby with the
Tlrunderbirds, that is a special occasion in itself, but this
year the Pep Club has built the
occasion into a week-long series of events to pass under the
name of the Evergreen Bowl.
The program consists of the two
final games of the World Cup Rugby
scries against the University of California. The games will be played in
the stadium on Thursday, March 24
and Saturday, March 26. The entire
Caf Crowd will be in attendance at
both games.
Second only to the games in interest
and importance is the Potlach which
will be held on Wednesday, March
23. The festivities will begin at noon
in the Armoury with a Pep Meet.
Heading the long list of entertainment will be a "name group" currently playing in downtown Vancouver
night-spots. Bob Thurston and Don
Urquhart will be co-emceeing the
effort with, for a change, a new line
of gags.
Wednesday night will see a mammoth rally scheduled for eight o'clock
on the Southeast playing field. Entertainment will be in the hands of
messers Ellis, Penn and Watt.
This will consist of songs, skits and
yells. The highlight of the evening
will be the gigantic bonfire erected
by the Varsity Outdoor Club. The
VOC will also be selling hot-dogs
and cokes to ensure1 that the throng
attending will not go hungry.
The whole idea of the rally is that
rooters should go in crowds or groups
to add to the excitement of all concerned. The Varsity Military Band
will supply music.
The first game of this crucial series
will begin at 12:45. The Thunderbirds
must win this game to retain a chance
at the World Cup and must win the
Saturday game also to keep possession
of the silverware.
Playing on their home field, the
Birds .'eel confident of a win which
ensures a good game, from the spectators point of view.
Also for the benefit of the spectators will be the parade, a panorama
of Varsity events. The fact that Earl
Butterworth is Marshall of this parade, ensures that it will be entertaining from the first Drum Majorette to the rear bumper of the last
model T.
The climax of the Evergreen Bowl
arrives Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m.
when the Thunderbirds and Golden
Bears take to thc field for the final
The cessation of hostilities will be
marked with a celebration at thc
Commodore Cabaret Saturday night,
when the local Fraternities and Sororities fete the Golden Bears. It is
hoped that all those who attend
the games and the rally will be in
attendance whichever side is the Victor.
A vote of thanks is in order to all
those who worked so hard to make
the Evergreen Bowl a success. Hard
workers were Nancy Wells, Elva
I'lant, Earl Butterworth, Doug Franklin, Bill Anstis, Connie Bisset, Bob
Talbot, Bob Thurston and Don Urqu-
art. Also, thanks to Dick Penn, Norm
Watt, Dick Ellis, the Varsity Outdoor Club, thc Varsity Military Band,
and the UBC Pipe Band.

Can We Beat The Bears?
Ever Since the UBC Thunderbirds returned from their
jaunt to California and a somewhat disappointing rugby series
with tho Golden Bears, tho question that everyone has been
asking is, "Can we beat them up here?"
The answer to such a query is an emphatic "Yes".
However, the job won't be easy; in fact it
will be one of the toughest assignments that
the Thunderbirds have ever taken on and it
will take r.ll of iheir skill and know-how to
meet the challenge.
« Thi;; year's version of the Golden Bears is
„ t undoubtedly the best in the university's his-
Lt ,i«&^tory' Tliey are big' rouSh» louSh and they are
looking nitit nke rugby players than ever before.
Unfortunately for the game as a whole,- however, these
ever-improving Bears still haven't mastered some of the bare
essentials—namely the rules.
Tlie Califomians are still ignorant of many of the niceties
of rugby and the onus of their ignorance i.s falling right where
it hurts most, on the necks of the smaller and lighter Thunderbirds.
There constant off-sides, charging - in the scrum< loose
'packing and other misdemeanours combined to give the 'Birds
a rough time during the Berkley series.
The biggest difficulty down there however was the almost
equal ignorance of the referees who officiated at the contests.
They allowed a great.deal of fouling on both sides but naturally
the more polished 'Birds came out second best on the deal.
It Happens To The Best
When the contest gets underway on Thursday, the UBC
ruggermen will face a situation that they haven't come across
since before the war. While they won't exactly be the underdogs, they definitely will have their backs against the wall.
A loss for them on either day would send the World Cup
scooting back to San Francisco from whence it came, since the
Bears already have one victory to their credit,
The local students need at least another tic and a decisive
win to retain the cup but no one, especially members of the
team will be satisfied with such a hungry arrangement.
They have declared openly, that they want two clear wins
and will settle for nothing else.
With such determination they need only a few breaks, good
weather, good refereeing but most important of all sincere student support. i
With this behind them they can beat the Bears.
To The Attic With The Armchair
Since this is the last regular issue of The Daily Ubyssey
and consequently the last time probably that this column will
appear in print, it seems only fitting that we should make a
few sage remarks in conclusion and even drop a nostalgic tear
or two.
Looking back on UBC sports over the past term, even the
most ardent supporter cannot say that it has been a "big year"..
As a matter of fact for the senior squads in particular.il
has been a tough session, what with the new conference and
The grid squad did not win a game, the basketball team
ran sixth in the league and the hard working icemen reached
the hockey finals only to have the thing snatched away from
them at the last moment.
There wa.s a bright side, however, for student interest in
sports generally has never been higher. They got behind their
teams, even though they were not winners, and made the players
know that they really appreciated what they were doing.
In conclusion we would like to play Drew Pearson and
make a few predictions:
1. The football team will continue to have a rough time
:>f it for several years yet.
2. The basketballers will continue to improve until prob'
ably the year after next they will be up around the top of the
3. Hockey will beccme a major sport on the campus within
the next two years if thc team gets to play in the new Kerrisdale arena.
4. The rugby team, within the next five years, will be
playing in a league with U of C, Stanford and UCLA and the
sport will increase rapidly in impedance at the American

the punch that the backfield has been
jacking in its past showings this year.
When you watch the game look
out fee Nelson's high-knee running

right in the eyes of would-be tackier:;.
With this addition to his well conditioned team Coach Albert Laithewaite should i spool to win by at least
ten points v, iih a wet bail and by at.

FIT AS EVER and ready to'go this Saturday when the Thunderbirds play Vancouver Lions for the McKechnie Cup here on
the UBC campus are forwards Eric Cardinal (left), Les Hemp-
sail, Girard Kirby and Geoff Corry. Along with Alex Carlyle,
Hartt Crosby and Marshall Smith, who make up the rest of the
'Bird scrum', they scored a moral victory over the much heavier
Golden Bears when they held them scoreless in the second
game on the Berkley campus.
Perennial'Stronghold of intercollegiate rugby on the Pacific
Coast, California, seems destined lo field another juggernaut
in 1949.   At least early season results point in that direction.
In their first two games of -the' 1919 •- "
campaign, the Bears met and overwhelmed the University 'ClUbHaUd
UCLA. Scores were by lopsided I57O
and   18-0  margins,   respectively,
Coach Milvs Hudson, 38 years old
and an American by birth but who
stent most, of his boyhood in the
ri:rby-playing country of N<;w Zealand, has already termed his 1949 Be^rs
i'S ''probably the best in California
history." Hudson, who has been head
coach since 1939 and who seems to
have acquired tho winning habit since
that time, knows whereof he speaksj
Sixteen members of the squad won
letters in the. sport last season, several
af them for the second and third time.
Those who earned their third letters
in 1948 and who are back again this
year are Bill Craig, the flashy ftill-
brck. Art Mower, thr> dependable
five-eighths, and Hank Wright,_,the
huge lock who tips the scales at
around  250 pounds. .'.<'..• >',>
Four veterans, Forward-Bob'Attlx,
Left wing George Irwin, Breakaway
John Raggio, and five-eighths; 'Ue'rt
Rovae have won letters in tho sport
Other E'ears returning who've won
single letters arc Allen Armstrong, a
five-eighths, Jim Cullom, a forward,
John Goss, a back, John Herring. c\
toward, Bob Kniptash, rear row, Wilbur Lenz, a forward, Bob Losey, a
half, and Mike McGuire, left wing.
Additionally the squad has been
bolstered by several men who, though
without previous experience, show
great promise. Foremost among these
is Carl Van Heuit, a small but tough
half who Hudson feels has the instincts to become one of tho best
Bear ruggers of all  time.
These 1949 Bears will certainly have
ample opportunity'to prove, that, ell
the nico things Hudson has said of
them are true. They arc facing an
extremely rugged schedule.
In addition to playing four games
with the always tough Thunderbirds
frcm tlie University of British Colombia, the Bears meet thc Victoria Reps
twice and clash once with .a Stanford team that is being hailed as the
'best ever'' at Palo Alto.

the university over the weekend when a third year Arts
student captured two Oregon
State titles in an open meet in
Bruce Benham, a champion on the
UEC campus, swept the open singles
in the south and paired up with Randolph Phillips, took the doubles championships  hands  down.
Getting off to a slow start in the
first game of the singles events, Benham lost the opener to defending
champion Russ Hill 12-15, but came
back in the next two games to win
them both, 15-11 and 15tl3 to take
away the crown.
In the doub'.a.;. Benham and partner Phillips did just as we'd, putting
flown their foes, Jim Paul and Russ
Topp  in three games.
The two losers, both of Seattle and
both candidates to the U.S. National
Tournament, lost the first game 13-1
from the winning duo, but forced the
second game to win 15-10.
But   Benham   and   Phillips   fought
back' in the third round of tlie set to
[bring  the game to a  douce,     where
they broke the tie to win tho game
and the title with a score of 18-1C.

Cullom, who did all the kicking .for
tho E'ears and set a Conference record
of 21 successful conversions.   . ,
His season record was 35 conversions
in 42 attempts. Biggest man on the
California team is another footballer
Hank Wright, who lips the scales at
a modest 255 pounds.
In direct contrast to Wright is diminutive Carl Van Heuit, receiving half
of the Bears, and a football., half

Thank You Mr. Wismer ?
Young people of British Columbia, including those at university, have a special interest
in the announcement made by the attorney-
general this week that liquor reform in the
province is to be delayed at least another
It is in the role of defender of youth that
Mr. Wismer fends off the demands for cocktail bars and the sane distribution of liquor
in B.C.
"For many years I have been fighting juvenile delinquency and for alcohol education,"
Mr. Wismer told the House. In view of this
previous position, Mr. Wismer says he would
not feel "justified" in opening three or four
hundred "Wismer bars" where young people
might be attracted to their first drink.
Further, he says, the opening of attractive
drinking places could only lead to more bedroom and back seat drinking which, he tacitly
admits, today's prudish laws have fostered.
For the sake of Mr. Wismer's own intellectual honesty, we hope his noble defence of
youth was no more than the tongue-in-cheek
sincerity common in an election year. And
for the sake of Mr. Wismer's political future,
we hope his buck-passing on the liquor question does not come from fears of lost votes
should so-called "Wismer , bars" break out
just as voters are going to the polls.
* Mr. Wismer should know by now that the
question of cocktail bar.s is not a party issue.
In Ontario, it was the Tories who brought in
"Drew bars"; in British Columbia, 90 percent
of the CCF is said by Mr.' Winch -to favor
more liberal liquor legislation.
If Mr. Wismer is afraid that new, liberalized
liquor legislation might lose him votes, he can
be reassured that no.party would be foolish
' en'ough to appeal for support on the basis of
today's hoop-skirted liquor system	
But, says Mr. Wismer, the will of the
people must prevail. If there is a demand,
the government will put liquor to a referendum vote next year. (Next year, that is,
when the government is presumably returned
to power and will have four or five years to
work the kinks out of a cocktail bar system
before going to the people again.) That is
just quaking ..political cowardice.
It is difficult riot to call Mr. Wismer's noble
defence of youth out-and-out hypocrisy. The
attorney-genera lhas triven to introduce alcohol education into high schools, a campaign
in which he has been successful, but at the
same time he forces those young people who
have been taught a sensible attitude towards
liquor into committing a crime every time
they take a drink at a night club or dance.
The attorney-general, whose duty it is to
administer the laws of the province, cannot
hope to build in young people a respect for
law and discipline when British Columbians
must flaunt the law with a phoney bravado
almost every time they seek-to follow the
•\atural desire to take a drink in pleasant
Youn-3 people appreciate Mr. Wismer's
i'athcrly benevolence, but really, they wish
he'd let them out in the big, wide world.
letters to the editor
Editor, Daily Ubyssey, Dear Sir:
Bob Russell, "critic," " "actor,'
and "idealist" (self appointed)
should undertake a little research
party before he tries fo use his
talent's 'also self appointed) dis-
cutylng a subject when he is obviously ur.quakficd to clo so, Green
roomers will be among the first
to agree with the eminent Mr. Russell's ideas of experimental theatre
work (they have had I'hcm for
years*; however, they have enough
knowledge of the circumstances
acting against its portrayal in this
campus to realize the impcssibility
of presenting modern plays at
One of the main obstacles. Mr.
Russell, is tbe fact that a payina
audience is needed to appreciate
such work (yes, paying, Mr, Russell. When you, personally have
convinced the audiences of Vancouver that they would enjoy modern drama over iheir usual fare,
ecme around and let us know.
This is a very commercial ago, Mr.
Russell. Modern plays demand
modern royalties, and despite the
lack of costumes in many of them,
the "take" would not be enough
to compensate for what can bc
taken in at' a Shakespearian production. This financial (but I forget—ycu aro experimental, aren't
you, Mr. Russell) trap is very
large if not very obvious.
Also, if presenting a Shakesearian
play is "insulting the intelligence
of the si'udents" (a direct quote
from the article in question) then
you and the students you are referring to, have been hiding in
some mighty strange places.
It is only by using plays of tho
Shakespeare or Sheridan Vypc that
we are able to combine the two
necessities of financial success and
a demand for good acting. Shakespeare requires a good deal of talent and work if it is to he done
well, Mr. Russell; you should be
ready to admit this after your attempt at the role of Touchstone in
"As You  lake It."
You have been on the campus
merely smce September, Mr. Russell, and aro in nn position to criticize the "one-act chestnuts." These
are produced in the fall to encourage new members by offering them
roles that contribute to rheir acting experience and stage-confidence. Tho distribution i f veterans
among the oasts is for carrying
im vaer as wil as for presentation
Y.p'i    er.i'iri.'o    a    clique    in    the
Club,    Mr.   Russell.   Here

there is a clique, (there are probably hundreds of them on the
campus) but it is a social effort
only. Thc acting members of the
club, end the plays to bc produced,
ure selected not' by thc clique as
you infer, but by an advisary
board. This board also allots the
parts in thc plass after fair tryouts. And this heard, Mr. Russell,
is composed of yur Miss Dorothy
Somerset, Elsie Graham, Dr. Earl
Birney, John Powell, and thc presiding president' of the Players
Club. If you wish to "wrong such
htnorahlo men" 'and women too,
Mr, Russell) by inferring that they
show favoritism to a clique, that is
your  business.
In the meantime. Mr, Russell,
pie as<\ confine your criticism to
subjects you underst'ind, and also
eliminate the large percentage of
plagiarism from your articles. You
are like the typical .student taking
an "arty" course, Mr. Russell; you
spout your instructors' ideas in all
your conversational circles, I refer
to the largo amount of ideas that
Miss Somerset so aptly formulates
in English 421 (theatre practice')
that you have confused into an
article. I can show you three passages (in the portion that docs not
criticize the Players Club) in your
article that Miss Somerset has repeated at least once a lecture since,
thc beginning of the term. These
without quotation marks tsk, tsk,
Mr. Russell. Think for yourself
or leave criticism alone.
So go ahead and blow your nose,
Mr. Russell, hut at the same tiine
hide your face.

An open letter to Mr. Bewley.
We must say, Mr. Be.vley, that
we are delighted bjyond measure
by the constant publicity you have
given to our union and its activities bv way of the profound ,md
subtle comment.-; contained in your
weekly columns.
The action ot well over ninety
percent of tho one thousand students in demanding, at the second
mass Martin meeting, that the Legal Professions Act be amended
to prevent further political inquisitions, was not the voice of
these students at all, but only tho
fanatic echo of twenty-one adolescent and mislead members of
the Civil Liberties Union. The fact,
that tbe Young Liberal Convention
went on record to demand a similar
amendment in tb.e name nf democratic rights docai't prow a thing.
Young Libera!.; are tbe same as
CVFors ,'(iul CCf'Yrs are only Communis.is    in    di..guise.    Tho    stem
criticism of tho Bencher's decision
by tlie Conservative paper, Ottawa
Journal, shouldn't be taken seriously because it reflects only the
ylcl school of Tory thinking; wait
till 'Gorficous George' comes to
p'o.vcr. Thc Benchers will then
reap the credit they sn righteously
But now, Mr. Bewley, on to your
'academic' argument on the Martin
matter. The CLU, Mr. Bewley, believes that a democratic society
must strive to guarantee tho free
exchange and competition of idea;;.
It believes that the people as a
whole have tliQ capacity to decide
which ideas are true, and which
are false. It also maintains that
citizens should bc encouraged to
give organized expression to their
beliefs through political parties
within the frame-work of law. Our
Union believes that the denial ot
free political thought and association is far worse than the potential
abuse of this right by any one
political party should it come to
power. And why, Mr. Bewley? E'o-
causc by saying a certain political
psychology is absolutely wrong
and by denying its free expression
you ore furthering the very attitude of mind which encourages
tb.e totalitarianism which you profess to fear. You aro encouraging
submission to one political philosophy and discouraging a rational
evaluation of all others. It is in
such a mental climate, Mr. Bewley,
that the political demagogue, the
red baiter, and the opportunist
reign supreme.
The Benchers' decision is open to
tho most fervent condemnation,
not only because it was unjust and
represents the exercise of a power
which is the prerogative of parliament alone, but because by it
steps have been taken to create
an atmosphere of fear on this
campus in which free thinking in
the realm of recent columns and
from personal contacts I am led
to believe that, the Red hysteria on
the University of Washington campus has been followed hy a distinct apathy on tho part of the
students concerning social and political issues--i.e. it doesn't pay t()
think too much. Wo do not want
a similar situation to develop at
UBC. It is therefore of the utmost
importance that Marxism bc given
the npp< rtunity to compete freely
with Democratic -Socialism, Liberalism, Conservatism, and yen, Mr,
Bewley, even Fascism, i'or the rational iiccepta/tce of university
students ,,nd citizens in general.

letters to the
Editor, Daily Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I find the exposure of the falacics,
misrepresentations, inconsistencies,'
and ambiguities, which were contained in Mr. Macdonald's article
of March 1, a duty — an obligation
to a brother who fell fighting in
Hong Kong, to my fellow Canadians,
and to myself.
Mr. Mcdonald quotes Dr. Rabino-
witch, Mr. Klein, Muhammed Shabe,
Mr. Freeman, as sources of information. What sort of torn-foolery is
this? These are only opinions, at
best, opinions of individuals who
are neither spokesman for Jew nor
lor Arab. Chaim Weizmann, Moshe
Shertock, Ben Gurion are the elected spokesman of the Jewish people
of Israel, as the Mufti, and the Asab
League are spokesmen for the Arab
people. These generalizations you
give us are not facts, and they do
not permit valid conclusions. I
demand facts, facts which can be
obtained from seventeen British
commissions who were sent to Palestine for tho express purpose ,of
investigating the problem which existed there, from universally validated reports, and from on-the-sceno
European Jewry was driven to
Palestine by a viscious and barbaric
persecution which claimed the lives
of six million Jews. The political
Zionists, Mr. Mcdonald, are not
driving the Jews toward Palestine
to protect the wealth which lies in
the Dead Sea, They are welcoming
the Jewish refugees, giving them
homes and a chance to start life
anew. Your accusations are nothing
less than slander, a slander that
smells to high heaven.
Furthermore, I feel assured that
people, hemmed in by barbed wire,
starved, beaten, facing extermination, do not think of resurrected
King Davids. Palestine was a sanctuary from a "Black Plague." The
whole world has shut its eyes, and
closed its doors. You, Mr. Mcdonald,
at the meeting in which you spoke
to tlie student body, emphasized the
fact that we would not wan Vancouver Island settled by Jewish
immigrants. In other words, let
them die. Is that what you meant
Mr. Macdonald? No, you 'do -not
want them on.Vancouver Island, nor
do you and your kind ever want to
see them leave the DP camps of
Europe. Let the resort lie in waste;
is that what you mean Mr. Macdonald- You, Mr. Macdonald are the
deluded   one,
Are you Mi-. Macrlnnald, aware of
the fact that Faw/i Ml Kaukji let
the Arabs in their invasion of Palestine, and i.s the same ■ man who
organized (with the aid of tho
Nazis) bands of marauders who
harassed and sabotaged the allied
war effort in the Middle East. Have
you forgotten where the Mufti of
Jerusalem spent the duration of the
war? Let me refresh your memory.
He spent lus time under Hitler's
wing, in Berlin. Another fact that
may he of interest to you i.s that
one hundred and .sixty German officers were among.it the Arabs which
the Israelis captured in the Faluja

Dear Sir:
Now lhat Open House at the UE'C
is prist, and we, who came to have
a look-see for ourselves, can think
of no better way of thanking all
those who had a part in thc planning, arranging, and carrying out
of the Open House program, than
by sending our congratulations to
all of them through the medium of
your paper.
All were on their toes, trying to
explain in simple language the marvels of the many things and subjects
on  view.
Thanks also to the Guides; who
did their utmost and saw to it that
one did not miss any items,
We could not help but, wonder,
of the immense facilities which arc.
provided for the students in their
chosen professions, and visitors like
us, must, now have an entirely different   conception   of  a   university.
Our only reeret is that it is impossible to see everything in one
day, even though we were in the
buildings and huts for eight hours,
and it is to be hoped that when
Open House is put on again that it,
will he for two days instead of one.
We enjoyed everything we had an
opportunity to look at and the interesting explanations given by
those in charge, and again our sincere thanks to all nf thorn.

In  This  Corner        by Jhn banham
, A last-minute decision—doubtless brought on
■ by the fact that we cr.uld get in cheaper, being
u student—took us to see Margaret Webster's
production cf Macbeth at the International
Cinema last week,
The opinion one comes to after mulling over
the produhtion for while is that it was, in the
last analysis, intelligent, and set without high
distinction. Mtrgaret Webster is well known
for her dramatic stature and her competence
with Elizabethan drama, and she is packing
abcut a cast in which no one actor clearly outshine the other It would appear thc company
is a training field for something bigger and
The role of Macbeth was taken by Joseph
Holland, strapping six foot, two inch man who
managed to inject enough fire into most of his
speeches to make the role of the ambitious
nobleman come alive, Best scene he did was
thc banquet episode, in which the ghost of tho
recently murdered Eanquo rises to torment
Lady Macbeth was something to behold. She
was exactly as we had pictured her—dark,
almost swarthy, with long black hair, and to
a certain degree, sexy, Her portrayal of a
benscicnce-stricken woman in the sleep walking scene was perhaps her best speech, although
of all the players, she perhaps put the most
verve and motion into her performance.
One of the better supporting roles, oven
though it was a minor role in the play was
given by young Alfred Ryder as Malcolm, son
of the murdered king. His diction was his
biggest asset, and if you closed your eyes ar.d
didn't look at him there was a strong voice
resemblance to Laurence Olivier, particularly in
his lasi.' speech in the play after the battle,
Margaret Webster has .taken some liberties
with the play that have in many ways made
it a more enjoyable presentation technicially
than  dramtically,
Her opening scene in the play, in which the
witches start the ball rolling is done by means
cf an inner stage which is slightly sot back
behind an inner curtain.   All the time that the
witches arc speaking their dialogue, soldiers
1 rem ■ the army parade back, and forth before
them with a good deal of hustle and bustle,
thus creating the illusion of invisibility.
Another crafty piece of staging is having
Macbeth come onto the stage with a blood red
robe on after murdering thc king and before
the discovery by Macduff. The symbolism of
the robe as the blood of the king on Macbeth
is not evident at first. The effect of the robe
is to distract your attention from the other
'characters on the stage. Unconsciously, the
eye shifts to this scarlet robe continually.
The witches of thc play are a well staged lot.
Their faces are never shown and the first witch
ha.; a set of elongated talons that she continually mcves over the red glow of the pot
during the pot-boiling scene. Their dialogue
is competently spoken with rasps and other
witch  trademarks. '
Tliis reviewer is a little jaded on sword fighting after seeing Laurence Olivier's duel with
Iacrtes in Hamlet, which was to our mind the
best in pict'urcs. The sword play in Macbeth
was, to say the least, amateurish and consisted
cf a few swipes over the head, while the rest
cl the time they crossed rapiers and talked.
v Further liberty is taken with the staging when
liicy draw daggers and grapple after Macduff
knocks tho sword from Macbcth's hand.
There were few parts of the dialogue poorly
spoken, but one which wo thought lost a lot
of its punch was the speech of dejection by
Macbeth just before the battle in which he
clubs life "a talc told by an idiot, full of sound
and  fury, signifying nothing".
The first part of the speech was spoken
scftly end in keeping with thc spirit of the
thing, but Holland spat out the last two lines
as thought he were angry at himself for believing them. It was hardly in keeping with the
spirit of the rest of the speech.
On the whole though, the performances were
even and competent, with no player outshining
thc ether. Margaret Webster remains one of
the few Shabespearean producers in America
who can instill intelligence into her performances.

Fear Sir:
I was shocked to learn the other
day that two of the pictures in Mr.
Clifford Robinson's show in thc Art,
Gallery had been defacetl by someone at the university. It was a
thoughtless and disgusting thing to
do, and it. reflects on tbe 'whole
university. '
Apart from the gross 'lack of
courtesy which this act implies,
there are other things to be considered. The first is that the gallery i.s
responsible for all damages ol thi.s
sort; and as the gallery budget is
insufficient for such needless outlays, wo may consider ourselves
lucky that wo still have a gallery
at all. In tbe second place, nn art
gallery is no place for subnormal
behaviour of the kind which has

Dear Sirs:
This package was to have contained a bomb — unfortunately at the
present time my private funds are
so depleted that I am unable to
purchase the material required to
concoct one.
The purpose of this bomb was to
blow the Uby;.. ey stafi to . . . other
locations . . . in which, if the price
of asbestos paper has not dropped,
even the AMS would refrain from
footing the bill.
On January 7, (this year) a Ubyssey headline toot'd its own praise
"Conference Judges Laud Ubyssey

'The last three words of that*quote,
if true, leave a question of validity of 1he judges decision undecided.
Please explain these three bits Vjf
newsworthy information:
1. Tho Sutherland Trophy.
2. The AMS vote "Today" — a day
ahead of time.
3. The missing R  in  Redshirts.
In tho words of the Greek, Anth-
ropos, "It is difficult for an individual to portray all the signs of
stupidity; but in an aggregation it
is a token of supremo endeavour."
Thus it i.s necessary to praise the

Editor,  Daily  Uby.ssey,
I would like to pass a few comments on the visit paid by several
UEC students on our campus, the
University of Washington, yesterday and their handling of the U of
W  Daily.
First of all I will admit that our
''alleged'1 newspaper is badly in
need of a thorough'overhauling and
the quality of work put out by the
members of your staff seemed to
fill the bill. At least to the satisfaction of the majority of students

m\.."'.f, it brought up an e'd cm-
I; over ail  i .:;,• ■ -namely  ;hal  Can..da
and  crumpets  and   of  English  accents.
It's bad enough to be considered
a foreigner in- an English speaking
country but when they start expecting us to be either Indians or
Englishmen and when our fellow
Canadians come down and imply
JUST that, it takes a lot of explaining to convince people that
Canada is just like the States.
Now tell me honestly, do you have
tea and crumpets at 10:00 every
morning and do you drop everything at 3:00 p.m., rush out and have
your afternoon tea? That's what
was said in one of the UBC articles.
It's a cinch I don't and never have,
As :. matter of fact. I've never even
tasted   a   crumpet.
Would you please do me a favor
and remind your readers that when
they visit the States to remember
the plight of their fellow countrymen and go easy on the baloney.
Sincerely yours, .

The blame for thes talcmate at
the Mock Parliament justifiably
rests at the door of the Young Liberal group which essayed to "go
it  alone."
The leader of thc opposition should
have been called by tho defeated
prime minister to form a government
as this is the usual practice in the
British .Commonwealth tradition. It
was evident a working between the
opposition parties existed for the
purpose of an education  bill.
Using tho isolated "Byng precedent" to guide them (which was
disavowed by the Imperial Conference afterward) thc premier "advised" the Lieutenant-Governor to
dissolve the house. Despite tho
protest from thc majority the premier insisted.

Dear Sir:

Hammers and Saws Roar to Build New Losf and Tound
A nev/ Lost and Found office, described by Shirley Dack, the Publications Board secretary as being,
"more efficient" is now under construction in the north Brock basement.
The Pub at the most quiet of times
is like one of Shostakovich's more
brassy works with the roar of typewriters, screams of editors matched
by the whines of reporters, but all
that is past.
All that has been supplemented or
submerged with the ringing blows of
•carpenters hammers and saws. It all
adds  up  to a  regular  cacophony  of

Not even the weird sounds produced by Radsoc in the otheiyend of
the Brock basement can match some
of the effects involuntarily achieved more wallets which have lain un-

plagued by an assortment of diverse
and odd articles lost by careless and
indifferent students. The normal ebb

has been swollenn by a freshet of
unwelcome articles brought over by
the Library staff.
Ironically, not a few of the articles
unloaded at the Pub by the Library
have been lost, strayed or stolen

NFCUS Offers
To Students
This year National Federation of Canadian University
Students offers students three
new services.
Any UBC student with a second
class average in his year's work may
participate in thc Canadian Student
exchange plan, which offers third
>ear studies at any one of tho universities within the federation.
In addition to the Canadian plan is
an American Exchange project. Under
Ihis plan a Canadian student may
pay his fees here and take the place
of a student from an American university who will have payed his fees
in the States.
Ten Canadian and fifty-two American universities have assented to participation in the scheme. Known
number of Americans — desiring to
exchange whh Canadians is six from
Obcrlin College, Idaho.
Another new experiment involves
overseas travel. Thereby a group of
forty Canadian students may charter
a plane which will fly from Montreal to London. Return cost will
approximate S310 per passenger. Tlie
gn up will be able to set dates for
flying and will make its own arrangements in Europe.
In addition to these three new services NFCUS is arranging travelling
fare reductions for students in Canada
and many other schemes which will

vital facilities which every winning club must have,,namely,
a. swimming pool right on the university grounds and a full
time coach to keep the boys in shape.      "        '.
Pool Included In Memorial Gym
The iirst problem of the two, the new pool, is supposed
to be taken care of when the UBC Memorial Gymnasium is
built. Included in the original plans for the structure, the pool
ia to occupy the bottom of the new gym:
".. JBut from the way that.things are going now, it looks as if
the gym is still in the dream stage of. construction. Unless
work begins right away pr> the structure, the realization of the
dream may not come until the end of 1950.
The biggest blow to the Thunderbird Swimming Club was
that the actual construction of the pool will have to wait even
longer, or at least until another $125,000 is secured for the
project. When they build the gym in'the next year or two, the
proposed site'of the pool in the basement of the building wilt
be roughly molded by the concrete foundations in anticipation
of the day when enough funds will be available to finish the
The site of the pool is ideal. There is enough space devoted
to the pool in the plans for it to be 75 by 42 feet in size, just
about the same size as the fine tank a,t University of Washington in Seattle. ,
UW Progressed With New Pool
UW has had its own pool on the campus for the last eight
years, during which time they have built tip from a mediocre
club to one of the top teams on the coast, taking the Northern
Division Collegiate swimming championships a few weeks ago.
They are far ahead of UBC in class, and the fact that they had
their own pool was One of the chief reasons that they were able
to produce such High-calibre clubs.
' It isn't as if Seattle was a breeding ground for natural
swimmers. The reason for UW's rise to swimming fame is that
the presence of their home pool is the eye-catcher that draws
fine aquatic performers from near and Taj. who are searching
for* a place where they can get much practice to keep in condition, good coaching to develop their style, and generally
enough pleasure out of their hard months of conditioning to
keep them satisfied. '
UBC Following  In  UW's Footsteps
UW started out in the same way that UBC is now operating.
UW swimmers were compelled to travel downtown to the local
YMCA pool just as Thunderbirds are forced to hike across to
the Crystal Pool for their needed practice, In the early stages
■ of development, UW had only second rate squads. Back in
1932 and '33, teams from UBC even beat the Seattleites. But
after they built their pool, UW Huskies have been in the top
swimming bracket of the coast.
British 'Columbia produces some of the country's host
swimmers. Young water enthusiasts of B. C. who are anxious
to carry on their education would, under natural circumstances,
enter UBC and would bring glory to the university through
their swimming talents. But the poor conditions that prevail
for them at UBC makes them look for greener pastures..
Pete Salmon, swim specialist from Victoria, who ordinarily
would have enrolled here, is now receiving his learning from
UW. His water ability made him one of the big cogs in the
swim machine that captured the Northern Division championships for UW.
Varsity Stars  Leaving  For States?
It is also rumored that a few of UBC's aces have got the
itch to travel to Seattle next year, instead of waiting around
here for their new pool to be built.  No one can blame them.
Foreign interests are at the present time tapping our source
of aquatic stars. The young star from Victoria, Stewart, has
been talking to Jack Torney, swimming coach for UW, nnd
he has almost made up his mind to go there. He said he would
like to come to UBC for his education, but they can offer him
so much more down south that he can't pass it up. The two
Portlance brothers from Ocean Falls are in the same boat,
while Gilchrist from the same town has his eye on Ohio U.
UBC must have a new pool slated for one of the first
projects to be started next year if it wants the supply of wa,ter
talent from. British Columbia to continue to swarm to this
Full Time Coach  Needed  Badly
Tlie other necessity of the club Is the selection of a full-
time coach. Doug Whittle, coach of the swim team, only managed to get out to the practice about once n week. His many
other duties, ranging, from teaching Phys, Eels, to coaching the
Chiefs basketball team, kept him too busy to devote very much
of his time to the swimmers. So far, the boys have had to
struggle along without him most of the time, yet they have
enough talent in themselves to sweep B. C, for swimming
UBC has the chance to produce the best water squads on
the Pacific Coast, but it. must have the necessary facilities. Tlie
host of potential talent from tlie Lake districts of the province, !
from the sea-side towns up the coast, and the many spotted
townships on Vancouver Island will keep UBC supplied with
high-calibre water squads for a good many years. All UBC

tradition in the Evergreen Conference.
Russ Hoy, javelin point winner last
\ear is expected to improve his distance over last season. On 1948 performances both Pavelich and Hoy
ranked second in Canada in their
respective events. Pavelich placed
second in the Olympic Trials in Montreal last July but Hoy did not make
tho trip owing to lack of expenses.
Broad Jumper and sprinter Pete Ket-
chen is switching to the 220 low
hurdles this year and is expected to
cause a few surprises in this event.
Bill Husband, sidelined with a sore
leg last year is expected to give support to Piercy iri the mile and two
mile along with the rapidly improv-
pell and Jack Ldwther are among
the nine milers who broke 5' last
/all. Ken Campbell, sprinter, Al Goddard, miler and Bill Strange, high
jumper are other prominent freshman   contenders.
Among the newcomers making a
strong bid for a place on the team,
are Gord Poffenroth, iddlo distance,
Roy MacDonald and Duguid, sprinters
and Mel Cruikshank, hurdler.
It is too early in the season for the
team to be picked but the heavy axe
may fall on some of the above who'
have been relying on past performances rather than on spring training
for a place on the team. With the
talent on hand there will be no need .
to play favorites and the race for
places on the team is still wide open
especially in the field events which
have been a weak spot for years
with one or two exceptions. |
