CROWD DOUBLED
50,000 See UBC
Despite a thermometer which dropped below the freezing
point for most of the day, U.B.C. played host to 50,000 people
Saturday, .twice the crowd of three years ago, according to
B. C. Electric statistic*.
Biggest attractions were glass-
blowing, generators and other
marvels of science in the Physics building. Engineers also
drew tho crowds with models
oi recent B. C. construction projects.
Open - House Committee reported a few hitches — a cow
being televised forgot where she
was. And somebody swiped the
Committee'.s emergency s.ock oi
diapers — but on the whole
things went smoothly
An awkward situation is rumored to have developed when a
thoughtless seating plan placed
Premier Bennett next to Mrs.
Arthur Laing. Thoy just don't
speik.
Another reported faux-pas; a
few pubsters singing their well-
known Social Credit song to all
who chanced along, unwittingly
and most tactlessly serenaded
no less a person than the editor
of   the   paiuy   organ.
The overall success of the
Open House Committee in particular and U.B.C. students in
general was illustrafed by the
comment of one visitor, "I think
a lot nf people in Vancouver
know a lot more about what
U.B.C. is and why U.B.C. is
Hum they did yesterday."
CBC TELEVISION cameramen train their lenses on an
Open House event in an
attempt to bring some of tho
attractions to the armchair
set.
FRENCH DEPARTMENT Open House display offers
posters, pictures and pointers about the land of wine and
women. This was one of the many departmental displays
on campus Saturday. — Bruin Thomas Photo

produced the best paper in spite
of production limitations — not
necessarily the best paper in

CHINESE DRAGON awed the many Open House spectators as Chinese Varsity Club swung and swayed with the
monster. Colorful costumes and strange music were part
of the spectacle. —Brian Thomas Photo

Socred  Land Grant
To Fill Future Needs
By SANDY ROSS
News of a 435 acre land grant from the Provincial Government which will satisfy all future needs of the University
! came as a pleasant  Open  House surprise to administration
officials Saturday.
Dc. N. A. M. MacKenzie, presi-'j — ■	
dent   of  the   University,   called | 'tween  cl0SI6S
the grant  "the most important
thing to happen to the University in years."
The land gift, which brings
the campus area up to 1000
acres, was transferred from the
government-controlled -Universi
ty Endowment Lands to UBC.
It comprises a mainly undeveloped area bounded by the
present campus, Toronto Row,
Acadia Road and Marine Drive.
The only buildings on the land
at present are part of Acadia
Camp.
MADE PUBLIC
The news arrived Saturday
morning in a letter from Provincial Lands and Forest Minister Robert Sommers, and was
made* public by Dr. MacKenzie
in his Open House address at the
Field House.
Said Dr. MacKenzie: "It certainly came as a pleasant surprise to me."
The need for a larger campus
has been felt at UBC for a long
time, and the plans to enlarge

Well Done
We think that UBC must have won many friends on
Saturday* and considerable credit must be accorded the
Open House Committee for this.
The University's Open House attracted a record number
of people.
And all of them could not have been other than impressed by the exhibits and displays.
The same thing could be said for the earlier part of the
week.
For the entire University Week celebrations, the Open
House Committee must be warmly congratulated for first of
all, getting people to visit us, and secondly, impressing them
once they were on the campus.
Great amounts of energy and imagination went into winning enough publicity to attract the 50,000 visitors which the
committee'set as its objective.
#
Even greater amounts of energy and imagination—particularly energy—went into the organization of the show itself.
The work of the committee will pay off in very real
dividends in the future. UBC needs friends, whether they be
legislators or members of the public at large. It needs them
for material benefits, and it needs them for more intangible
benefits.
These benefits have been won for us by the Open House
Committee, and we thank them for it.
GUEST   EDITORIAL
Should The Ubyssey
Be Under 'Control'?
Some of the things the Ubyssey has done this year
have been pretty unpopular, and highly-placed people on
the campus are asking, "Do we have a responsible and representative press?"
A high-ranking administration offical put it fhi.s way: "A
downtown editor is responsible to his readers and his publishers. Peter Sypnowich, too, must he responsible to someone."
Now we should be grateful that Tho Ubyssey, unlike
Vancouver's dailies, doesn't have to kow-tow to the demands
of its advertisers, pander to the thrill-seeking tastes of its
readers, or be subject to the whims of the moneyed man
who happens to own the paper.
Absence of this sort of "responsibility" is a blessing.
Anyway, since when did "a free and responsible press"
mean a newspaper controlled by the government? When we
brand a newspaper as irresonsible we mean that it hasn't
lived up to proper standards, not that it lacks outside control.
And what sort of control would an outside group give?
One student council reacted fast when Les Armour called
them a group, of gutless wonders. Greek-packed council
has been sensitive to attacks on fraternities.
But the vulgar trash of the engineering Ubyssey goes
apparently unnoticed. Those who raise the rumpus only
do so when their own special interests are attacked.
But when the authoritarians demand a paper that properly represents UBC students, they tip their hands. For a
complaint of unrepresentativeness is an objection to dissent.
The demand for a paper which represents the outlook of
those in power is further evidence of the climate of conformity which now exists at UBC.
How about the fact that the editor-in-chief is elected by
a small group, the editorial board? Democracy does not always demand universal suffrage and complete freedom to
run. What would we think is we were told that admission
to the University or the right to a job would depend upon
a popular vote?
Now, anyone can become a member of the editorial
board of The Ubyssey. It requires a slight amount of writing
ability, hours of time, and putting up with some of the pubsters. Not everyone fulfills these requirements, but there's
far more opportunity for the average student to control the
campus press than, say, to get elected to Council.
The Ubyssey is now subject to the same controls that
every other AMS organization on campus is subject to. It's
apparently all right to Jazzsoc freedom because they reach
a limited group. Freedom only when it is ineffectual is all
that authoritarians offers.
If we have an independent paper, it means that it will
have the opportunity to bungle, to attack our own interests,
and to embarrass us. But if wo are afraid of the dangers of
freedom, we must be satisfied with the sterility of control.

Liquor Denounced
Editor, The Ubyssey;
In a recent article in The
Ubyssey, I read that a dance
is planned for the support of
the rowing team, this dance to
be held in the Armoury. "The
only flea in the ointment," we
are told, "is the problem of
liquor. (There would necessarily
be a lot of drinking." Is this the
prevailing attitude of UBC students—that the only way to
"howl" is to take from thc
bottle first.
I would rather like to think
that there are many more students who would be interested
in, and would attend, such a
dance, if they were assured
that drinking would not be a
problem. '
On March 2, President MacKenzie gave an address on "The
Needs of this University," part
of which is repeated in the same
issue with the above-mentioned
article. Dr. MacKenzie said
nothing about liquor as one
of the needs. ,
But he did stress the need of
our world for men and women
with university education, particularly in the field of human
relationships. That education
has many facets, social and recreational as well as academic.
But to be called a university
education, it must be uplifting,
not degrading. Why, then, the
necessity for drinking?

2 L. P. RECORDS FROM UBC
Record Loan, missing from
Austin in parking lot. Wed.,
Feb. 16.
Editor,   The   Ubyssey,
During the Saturday afternoon's "Open House" celebrations at UBC, a visitor to the
campus who was conducting a
small party through the buildings dropped in for a moment at
the publication offices of the
student "Ubyssey."
A couple of pubsters in the
best of faith, grabbed two banjos and proceeded to render a
somewhat loud, and highly satirical duet, in which they dealt
very severly with the personalities and objectives of the
Social Credit Movement in Canada, and especially in British
Columbia.
The song was witty, and the
visitor and his guests were
much amused, though mostly
for reasons unknown to the
pubsters.
The visitor happendd to be
Denis Grant, until recently president of Vancouver Burrard
Social Credit Association, and
at present time editor of thc
"Bulletin," official publication
of thc Social Credit League
in British Columbia.
P.S..This was just too damn
good to miss. D.G.
Chapel Suggested
Editor,  The Ubyssey;
In the present glow of excitement over our new buildings;,
such as the Forestry lab and thc
Arts building, has anyone given
any thought to a campus chapel.
In a university where most
of the students profess some
kind of religious affiliation, it
seems reasonable to expect that
an inter-denominational chapel
would serve a felt need. Yet at
the same time, I realize that
there are problems of space
available and funds for the construction of such a chapel.
' It may be that a chapel 4s
only a pipe dream on my part,
but surely there are some students and organizations on the
campus who would like to have
a p{ace of prayer available and
who would at least consider the
possibility of a chapel.
John Sandys Wunseh, Arts 3
How many B.C citizens were
deceived by this statement of
Sandy Ross on fraternities and
sororities in the Open House
special edition of the Ubysey—
"the Greeks continue to make
themselves useful through philanthropies—$2,000 for Multiple
Schlerosis each year, plus various scholarships and projects
- and by providing accommodation for several hundred stu-
dents."
Thus self-indulgence masquerades as philanthropy. To
squeeze $1 for Multiple Schlerosis out of the philanthrophy
"Greek" citizenry, from 5 to
50 times that amount (the estimates vary) had to be spent on
clothes, loquor, program costs,
etc. I'll pay $3 to the commerce-
man who can give a satisfactory
detailed report of figures and
estimates to establish the exact
ratio. The "Greeks" didn't have
to use' charity as an excuse to
have a good time or vice versa.
And all provincial and University dignitaries who acted
as patrons for the Mardi Gras
must share responsibility for
this degradation of humanitarian principles; this self-indulgence In the name of unfortunate cripples.
But even had the "Greoks"
not committed this blasphemy,
such extravagent dissipation
was irrational and insane under
any circumstances. Fbr if in,
our atomic age, the rich of the
earth are not to continue growing richer and the poor poorer,
{which situation .must finally
produce a human or nuclear explosion that will end all) the
future will be too late for us
to cut our lavish extravagances.
A sacrifice of our present
materialistic mania won't kill
happiness; it will substitute
truer and  higher pleasures.
Its anything but philanthropy, (a desire to do good to all),
that motiviated the "Greeks"
to build residences for themselves and their own. The "paragon" of inefficiency is a dozen
students housed in their own
little palace requiring separate
coking facilities etc. bringing
the per unit building and main-
tainance cost to a maximum.
Had the "Greeks' given their
funds to the housing authorities
in exchange for a guarantee of
so many rooms in large joint
residences, more students could
have been housed for the same
amount of money. Another cqm-
merceman can figure out how
many more. Of course then the
"humanitarian frat men" would
come into contact with a greater part of humanity.
Sandy Ross concludes rightly that the frats cannot be ignored. But let's not be so defeatist. If they're here 'to stay
let it be at .maximum value
to society and not as a negligible quantity or even as .a detriment.

Learning in School?
Editor,  The Ubyssey;
A writer in thc Open House
issue of your' paper remarks:
" 'We learn not in school, but |n
life,' said Seneca in the year
4 B.C."
As Seneca at that d^ate was
hurdly likely to have been more
than twelve months old, it
looks as though the first half,
at least, of that quotation contained a most impressive truth.

1200 FEET DOWN, on the bottom of the
Atlantic Ocean is a metal case. In it is an
electronic amplifier. Electric signals weak
from the long journey by cable are here
amplified and reshaped into stronger,
clearer signals. With this single installation
the cable's capacity was increased from 50 to
167 words a minute.
This it possible only because of tho
presence ol tiny piocos of nickel in
tho amplifier's vacuum tube.
For years now, communication between
this Continent and the United Kingdom
and Europe has been a problem. It was
particularly serious during the war when
communication channels were overloaded
by Allied Governments, military and press.
The first of these amplifiers was installed
recently by Western Union on the company's cable which stretches under the
Atlantic from Bay Roberts, Newfoundland,
to Penzance, England.
PLAYERS   CLUB   PRESENTATION
Sordid Tale On Wimpole Street
Incest! Incest! Incest!
The story of and overwhelmingly jealous man who almost
attacks his daughter and
niece and "guards his house
like a dragon against love"
will be told by campus Player's Club in their »9th an
nual spring production.
The eternal love story of
Elizabeth Barrett and Robert
(Browning will Be brought to
life Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in Rudolph Bes-
ier's "The Barretts of Wimpole Street."
The role of Elizabeth Barrett which has been played
by all the leading ladies of thc
theatre including Katherine
Cornell, and Sarah Churchill,
will be portrayed by Doris
Chillcott. Gerry Guest will
,play opposite her as the soft
spoken and imaginative lover,
Robert Browning, plagued by
the ravings of Elizabeth's father,  John Wittaker.
The plot thickens When the
despotic Mr. Barrett almost
beats up his other daughter
Henrietta (Eve Newitt) when
after forbidding marriage in
his family, he finds her in the
i'.rns b1: her lover.
GIVE SCHOLARSHIPS
FOR FOREIGN STUDY
World University Service
is offering eight foreign study
scholarships to UBC students
for 1955-56.
The scholarships will cover
all expenses except transportation to universities in such
exotic lands as India, Germany, Uganda, South Africa
and Indonesia.
Deadline for application is
March 15. Information can
be had at the WUS office in
South Brock.
Elizabeth's dog, the noted
Flush, represents the climax
of the ptyy which results in
the final triumph over the
father, as Elizabeth and Robert run off to the continent.
The production, under the
direction of the well-known
actress and director, Pheobe
Smith, assisted by Margaret
Robertson, is backed by
$1500 worth of antique furniture and authentic Victorian
costumes in an elaborate set
designed  by Peter  Jackman.
Noted for the extreme difficulty of the parts of Barrett,
Elizabeth, Robert Browning
and Henrietta Barrett, the
play is a classic of Victorian
drama.
"Itpromises to be one of ou!\
best# productions for some
time," club president John
Whittaker said.
Reserved tickets are moving quickly and students are
advised to make, their reservations now. Tickets, are on sale
in the Players Club Green
Room or at Modern Muiic.;

Nickel alloys were used at vital points
to guard thc case containing thc amplifier against the many forms of marine
corrosion that occur beiow thc ocean's

Jazz To
For
Rowers
Since tho udvent of James C.
Petrillo, musicians who perform
for free have become a scarce
commodity at University concerts.
However, Ken Hole and his
17 piece band will blow modern
jazz Wednesday noon in Xh*i
Auditorium with all proceeds
going to the fund to send the
UBC rowing crew to the Henley
Regatta in July.
Approximately $25,000 must
be raised to send the Cinderella
crew to England for the biggest
of all regattas. UBC's Jazz Society, through the generosity of
Hole's band, is just one of many
campus organizations that will
be sponsoring fund raising
events.
The band includes a number
of musicians from the campus
with Commerce-gal June Watson
handling the vocals
The program will feature original arrangements by Vancouver arrangers Doc Randal
and Pat Doyle and a few from
the pen of a Los Angeles boy
well on his way to becoming another   Stan  Kenton.

Winning Again
Braves 23 • Ex Tech 0
Blurbs 19 • Ex Brit 3
Only two UBC rugger games were played Saturday, and
they resulted in proving that Braves and Blurbs are the teams
to beat for/the Carmichael Cup. Braves flattened Ex-Tech
23-0, while Blurbs smashed Ex-Brits 19-3.
THE ROWERS it seems, are testing a new sub-coxwain,

Proceeds of the concert go toward sending the scullers off
on their international trips. The serenader, incidentally,

CPR Nips
Birds
In Snow
CPR 2 — BIRDS 1
By NEIL MACDONALD
CPR continued on their wtn-
ning track by defeating Varsity
2 to 1 over the weekend in the
first televised soccer game in
Canada, with their first goal
coming on a shot which passed
through the sun.
CPR big break came in the
first half and they hel3 their
1 to 0 lead to half-time. Then,
Varsity changed their forward
line and their scoring punch appeared more potent. Bruce Ashdown, continued his streak of
a point a game, by taking a kick
from John Green and heading
it home.
WELL DESERVED
In the last fifteen minutes of
play, CPR came back to score
and win the game. There goal
was well-deserved.
Varsity's Sunday game with
league-leading Pilseners was
cancelled because of the snow.
The game will go next Saturday.
Chief's also suffered from the
snow and their game was snowed out. Next Sunday's game
will be announced on Tuesday
night.
STEADY
Varsity's steady defensive
unit again held down the offensive rushes, allowing only
two goals. Ted Smith, Ian Todd,
Jack Butterfield Bud Frederickson and Dick Matthews again
slowed down the CPR rushes.
Grasshockey
Ends In 2nd
Varsity's grasshockey squad
wound up in second place in
the Lower Mainland Grasshockey League's final standings,
by defeating a rough and ready
Vancouver team 3 to 2 over the
weekend.
* Braves showed far too much
skill and speed for Ex-Tech.
Even with 20 min, halves there
was no holding them. Personifying the dash and splash of the
whole three-quarter line was
John Legge.
A RECORD
Legge set something of a record in scoring. Five tries he
I made. Five whole Snes. This
! brings his season's total to about
17 tries. George Dollto and
Cllevc Nell scored one each,
while Rajah Kronquist hoisted
one convert. Ex-Tech wasn't
even in the game.
Blurbs took ExBrit to task
after spotting them a penalty
kick for three points. They rebounded back into the game
when Ron Stewart slashed and
clawed has way through six
Brits for a three point try.
Five when Bob Weinburg converted.
LEAPS AGAIN
Stewart again led a 90-yard
dribble to the Brit goal line, and
burst over for an 8-3 lead. Other
scorers were: Laurie Tuttle,
brother Ian Stewart, and a penalty goal by Weinburg to end
the game 19-3.
The game was slightly sloppy
and erratic in spots, for it soon
became evident that the match
was on ice for the hard-hitting
Blurbs, and they relaxed and
toyed their lighter opponents.
APPARENT
It now seems apparent that
the Braves-Blurb contest will determine the leagues's best team.
Braves have speed, skill, and
dexterity, while Blurbs own the
jlower, weight, and crushing
tackling  strength.
Maxmen   Give   Their
All   In   Meet   Upset
By PETE WORTHINGTON
UBC's swim team, hit by a recent blight of academic ineligibility, invaded Bellingham with the smallest team ever,
to compete in the Evergreen Conference. Five of the original
team went, and no one, repeat no one gave Varsity a snowball's chance to even place. So UBC won the Conference championship 79 points to Western's 70 and Eastern's 53.
Every man on the squad bettered his previous swim times,
though on paper the UBC times
were far below those of the
Americans.
TOO MUCH
Varsity was expected to have
about as much a chance' of winning against their rivals, as was
Russia's hockey team of squashing the "Go-Go Vs" — almost
nil.
Coach Max. Howell and assistants Jerry Elliott and Merv
Ellis dragged their triumphant
athletes from the pool in a state
of bewildered wonder. The boys
swam themselves to near collapse, and as a result of this
Jim Peter-ish spirit, came
through and won.
UNFAIR
It would be unfair to pick individual stars, so-called. They
were all glittering. Doug Kilburn won in three events while
Gerry Van Tets won two breast-
stroke races and was on the
winning medley relay team. Don
Francis swept the diving by 30
points, ihen swam a leg of the
winning relay.
Dune Mclnnas placed 2nd in
the 50 yard free-style and broke
a record in doing so. In the 400
relay he started the last leg
15 yards behind, and prduced
the finest individual effort of
the day in closing the gap and
winning for UBC. In the 400
Medley relay, with the championship in the balance, the boys
spashed home the winners by a
fin, to earn the title again for
another year.
NEEDED POINT
Apart from those mentioned,
Manager Bill Young, Walt Otto,
Von Wittgenstein and Cross
picked up needed points. Eddy
Lee was .outstanding, as was
Brian Harvey in the breast
races. Bob Debuysschev, Rick
Cheng and Dave McDonald delivered the  goods as well.
There have been few squads
ever to display the spirit that
UBC did last Saturday, and the
stock of the underdogs rose considerably. The darkhorse reputation of UBC teams is growing.
