University of  British  Columbia,
Vancouver, Canada
Dear Vaughan:
I wish to thank you for your
telegram concerning Uip success
of the blood drive on your campus
and I wish to congratulate you for
this tremendous accomplishment.
I am pleased to acftnlt your superiority #ln this respect and tfe at
the University of Texas acknowledge our defeat. I sincerely hope
that we will ..suffer even greater
defeats In the future for I am convinced that this spirit of giving
should' sprjacl throughout both our
nations arid that new records of
blood donations should be established In each drive. We Texans
salute you!
I am enclosing for your benefit
a clipping from the Daily Texan.
Sincerely yours,
(signed) Wales Maddon. Jr.
President,  Students' Assn.
University of Texas
The University of Texas, with
an enrollment of over 17,000, donated 2810 pints; the University of
British Columbia, with 5.5J5 students, donated 3,004 pint;* of blood.
According to the brief presented to the Royal Commission hy the Canadian Manufacturer's Association, only 7
per cent of Ontario High School
students   enter   university.
The association felt that
these wore not unecessarily the
best quplifled to take university  work.
Vaughan Lyon aald yesterday that Ne felt only those with
adequate academic standing
and ability should be allowed
to come fo university.

v> their .attitude,   Canadian   students
are   not   Interested   ln   National

conference,    he    said,    delegates

hours   discussing   their   relations
with  the  Communist-led  IntettUt-

Canadian students need national
scholarships? both men showed
how vital is the immediate Institution of scholarships on a national

Lyon Decries Apathy
The AMS president decried student apathy towards the scholarship plans.

IT appears likely that a motion, to have the university
'administration withdraw official recognition from Greek
Letter Societies will be presented to the the spring general
AMS meeting.
If so, there will be a great deal of emotional outpouring
on both sides and it will be extremely difficult for the student
body to come to a reasonable decision.
There are two primary objections to the societies: many
of them have discriminatory racial and religious clauses in
their constitutions ahd all of'them erect financial barriers to
membership. N
- It should be quite clear that the university cannot afford
to appear to be in the position of putting its seal of approval
oil groups which foster racial and religious prejudice.
On the other hand, official recognition gives the university some control over th£ groups and it should not be withdrawn hastily.
* The administration should work actively to have discriminatory clauses removed from fraternity and sorority
constitutions. If, after a reasonable period has elapsed, it
becomes clear that certain groups are unwilling to lower the
banters those groups should be taken off the campus.
The second question is more difficult and requires a
deeper insight into the whole problem of social organization.
; Fraternities and sororities fulfill a definite and specific social
As long as they remain on the campus no alternative
Organisations fulfilling the same function can hope to succeed.
The limited success of Phrateres is an excellent example.
The problem, of course, is that the present situation
leaves.those students who either cannot afford to join Greek
Letter Societies or object to them on principle, strictly out
in the cold.
It should be remembered, however, that withdrawal of
official recognition would not necessarily provide an answer.
It is probable that only the disbanding of Greek Letter
Societies could do the job.
And how do you tackle that one?
Sabotaged Kilt
A minor international crisis broke out in Korea last week
when word got around that a U.S. Army pipe band had
ordered Royal Stuart tartan kilts.
An embarrassed Army PRO issued a statement calling
the whole thing off and putting the blame squarely on "communist sabotage."
In the recent outbreak of foot and mouth disease on the
Prairies, authorities found it necessary to issue a statement
that the epidemic was not due to a communist plot.
We will soon come to the stage of calling all disasters
hitherto described as "acts of* God," "communist sabotage."
•yhe Americans already seem to have acquired the habit
of calling all dissenters "Marxists," although most of them
have no idea what the term really implies.
However, we can still be thankful,that we have not yet
attained the high standard of communist epithets like "capital-
isto-imperialistic fascists" or the even more perfect Goebbel-
sian "judeo-bolshevistic capitalists."
Not A Drop
H, there it is, like a sainted aunt in a hallowed niche,
the fountain at the top of the Library stairs (8th stack
llvel). The lovely, wet fountain that runs when prodded. The
only satisfactory fountain on the whole large campus, strange
to say. If everyone of the mad 5000 lined up it would make
quite a drinking song, indeed.
In $e Arts ,Bldg. the fountains are well hidden, but still
accessible, although weak, and usually in use; in the Engineering Bldg. we just don't know, and in the Law Bldg. we feel
outnumbered so we don't ask, but rather cringe thirstily in a
new shiny corner.
In the Library we push the little wheel and out comes a
weak, wet spurt that dies a melancholy death before the
mission is complete.
Must we walk the thirty-nine steps to the hallowed
fount seemingly installed for honours students and staff,
alone, before we quench that basic desire for water? Or must
we stand in the puddle outside and hope our tongue can reach
the large gay drops pouring from the stone on the +'ron: lawn.
He (or she) who stumps for more fountains (along with
decreased bus fare) gets our vote.

Thelma Bakes A Sponge Cake
I tucked the last strand of
hair under the holes In my
haalrnet, smoothed my newly-
starched white uniform, and
hurried down the hall to my
first "Experimental Cookery"
Twelve girls were seated In
rows as Miss X. gave each a
folded piece of blue paper. And
although the bell had gone long
before* I had made my entrance, she smiled kindly at me,
and handed me one of the blue
slips. That kind of made me
feel as though'I belonged, too.
I opened the blue papaer and
found    only     two    words:
"Spongo Cake."
Looking around to ask what
lt meant, I watched with fascinations as all twelve rose
like radio-controlled robots In
white uniforms and sleek netted hair, and moved silently
towards the four corners of the
room, la each corner was a
small kitchen, with room for
three girls ln each.
Economy was certainly the
keyword In Home Ec. A place
for every girls . . . hey! what
about me? I jumped up, spewing my books over the floor
with a bang and a clatter, tinkle tinkle. (The latter was
"toy pen)
"Over "here.'' A signal from
the tower pointed to a tiny
white square of work space.
"This is where you will work,"
Miss  X  explained  kindly.
"Mmmmm ..." What else
could I say?
"iShhh!"   Was   the   answer
from  my partner in white.
Sponge cake indeed! The
Idea, I discovered after a perusal of minute writing on the
board, was to prepare an 1|8
of the standard recipe for the
product on your little blue
paper, and then have lt "judged." Well the first part was not
too difficult. I collected all my
Ingredients, weighed them,
mixed  them  and  then  poured*
the resulting soup into a square
pan 'and set lt into the oven.
Even the cleaning up went
smoothly. And then they did it
again. Ot else I missed my
signals . . .
From each corner of the
room, the white robots glided
towards the row of little tables,
Tflaced their creations on small
white plates, and then stood
by with spoon In one hand and
pencil l*.i the other. Precisely at
that moment Miss X. came
along, took a nibble off each,
chewed thoughtfully smiled and
then returned to her desk
where she went on marking
papers, knowing well that work
would proceed.
Well, if she could eat, thou
I could too. Say, this lah was
OK. I wfiit from tho uponco
cake to the stewed prunes, the
lemon sherbet, the pastry, the
cookies, and finished up with
a swig of cocoa. What would
the. men on campus say if they
could sec the feast we were
"And what are your results,
Miss Barer?" Miss 15. had re-
■ membered   that   we   were,   Indeed,   still   here.
"Your  scores,'1   She  was  so
patient with me. "How did you
. score   your   sponge   cake,   for
"Cake? Oh, I thought lt was
delicious I" And by the way ;he
others l.ad attacked it, I knew
that they would agree with me.
Hut I was woefully wrong.
They had only been "tasting.",
and now one after the other,
they read their judgements
from the scraps of paper: "Tex-
turt coarse, flavor too bland,
tunnels and holes, uneven
crust, burnt on the bottom . . ."
And I 'r.E.d thought holes made
the cake light;
That night I ate dinner \*ery

goes, the game will be of interest
to all Grasshockey enthusiasts and
since   this   is  the  only   game   the
