Up To Acid T«tt
A student investigating committee threw out two complaints
against prominent campus figures. Wednesday.
A complaint from Ken Perry,
Law 3. alleging Roy Trimble,
Law 3. consumed beer on the
campus was termed "frivolous"
by the committee.
The committee discovered
that the law titudents had been
merelv Irving to provoke a test
case to determine the legality
of the student court.
ln a subsequent letter to The
Ubvssev. tnmb.e admitted that
the affair was engineered by
himself and l-'errv and that the
alleged "beer" wfta really cold
in the report, the investigating committee said, "If the matter of constitutionality is such
an engrossing proolem for some
of the law school members, they
should adopt a more constructive attitude."
The Investigating committee
also threw out a charge laid by
Applied Science Undergraduate
Society, charging that AM&
treasurer. Allan Goldsmith, acted beyond his authority when
he suspended the ASUS budget
Immediately after Applied Science students raided The Ubys-
sev office.
Investigating committee backed uo Goldsmith's action and
also noted that no hardship wfes
brouflht upon EUS during the
four«dav suspension of their

to the date of the suspension of
the budget would have to be

Issues lor discussion Include the controversial discriminatory clause ultimatum, the Ostrom Plan and withdrawal of UBC from Evergreen Conference participation.
Students have asked Faculty Council to withdraw

'Siwash' Will  Feature
Best Of Old And New
They call it "Siwash" and it's the first magazine to appear
on this campus in five years-
"Siwash" is the new literary and humor magazine put out
by the Publications Board, to appear March 26 for its debut.
Last student magazine to see
print at UBC was the "Thunder
bird" which died a slow death in
1949. That publication featured
Eric Nicol, Ernie Perrault, Mario
Prizek, Jean Howarth and a
whole stream of campus literary
"Siwash" features the best of
the old columnists, the pick of
the new creative writers now on
campus and the cartoons of the
famed Applied Science artist,
Gordie McKenzie. In fact, the
magazine is dedicated to the en-
arc Applied Science faculty.
Cartoons, poems, lampoons,
essays—everything is included in
ihe 28-page magazine which will
sell for 20 cents.
Editors promise the magazine
will go on sale March 26, they
jromise that the Applied Science
joys will be highly pleased and
Ihey promise to firmly establish

Faculty Council's starid on discriminatory clauses in fraternity constitutions will not be known until a formal statement has
been drawn up and approved by President N. A. M. MacKenziS,
said Dean G. C. Andrew, Thursday.
The question, asked by Student Council several weeks
igo, was discussed at the Tuesday meeting of Faculty Council,
but members of the committee
charged with preparing a statement are* "pretty busy" with
other things, the dean declared.
General AMS meeting of
March 19, 1803, decided that organizations would be given one
year to remove discriminatory
clauses from their constitutions
or be no longer affiliated with
the AMS.
Fraternities and sororities are
not controlled by the AMS, but
by faculty council, making it
necessary for Student Council to
ask for action on the matter with
regard to Greek letter societies.
Only five fraternities still have
discriminatory clauses on the
campus, two or three of the
others having removed them during recent years.

Cultural Sahara May
Came If Symphony Flaps
UBC students aren'l vultures for culture, judging by
ticket sales for today's Vancouver Svmohony "pops" concert sponsored by the Special
Events Committee.
Less than 300 tickets have
been sold. To meet expenses
Lai. must seu at least 2000
tickets at 50 cents.
"If this floDS. UBC will be a
cultural Sahara for the next
ten vears." said LSE president
Johann Stovva.
The concert, not a rehearsal
like last vear's performance,
is under the direction of the
noted conductor. Irwin Hoffman.
A detailed statistical report on
Fort Camo housing at UBC has
oeen released throughout the
province following Premier Bennett's budget announcement ot
a -.-.uo.uuo "additional grant" to
University of B.C.
Designed as a plea for increased budget, the report describes
crowding, poor studying conditions, and unhealthy living conditions in the hut residences.
1. Of 2500 out-of-town students at UBC. 1350 live in private homes outside the gates.
Thev pay an average of $58 per
month rent and $5 pet month
for transportation. In 1966 there
will be about 5600 out-of-town
students at UBC.
But of the 2500. 1150 live on
the camous. about 1000 of. these
in the nine-vear-old stop gap
huts at Fort Camo and Acadia.
Thev Dav an average of $52.50
per month for double room and
2. Overcrowding is a problem
at Fort Camo. There is an average of 109 square feet of floor
soace per student. In the permanent women's dorms, the average is 233 square feet of floor
soace per student.
The smallest room at Fort
Camo has 53 square feet of floor
soace. the smallest in the women's dorms has 90. Furniture
in the Fort Camo rooms leaves
18 sauare feet of free floor space
in the smaller rooms, scarcely
enough room for two people to
stand in.
3. Poor studying conditions
are a great problem at Fort
Camo. Over 50 percent of the
rooms have single quarter-inch
plywood walls, the rest have two
lavers of auarter-inch plywood.
There is no privacy. Noise
penetrates through the thin
walls. Studying, one of the
most important parts of universitv training, is almost impossible under these conditions.
4. Unhealthy living conditions are caused bv drafty and
humid rooms. A poorly placed
washroom has one toilet for
everV 17.7 students and one
shower for everv 17.7 students.
Permanent housing is desperately needed. Much of the future of this province depends
upon adequate government support of the Universitv.
New Zealand 42; UBC 3
International rugby wizardy at its best, as exemplified by
the renowned New Zealand All Blacks, made its appearance on
the campus Thursday before over 4000 spellbound fans.
New Zealand's touring Blacks racked up their largest
score of their  33-game  tour —$r
which is only dimmed by 4 los
ses and 2 ties—when they put
together twelve tries and three
conversions to amass 42 points.
UBC's Birds could only manage 3 points, on a try by Skip
McArthy, after virtually the
whole squad had taken part in
the 60-yard passing play, which
wer,e countered just as the final
whistle blew.
An amazing display, in a losing cause, was put on by Birds
as they tackled and passed with
a vengeance in their attempts to
slow up the vaunted onslaught.
Special praise of the Varsity
forwards was made by Bob Stuart, captain of the International
side, as UBC "warmed up" for
their forthcoming World Cup
games against California on
March 25 and 27.
Pin-point passing done at the
last possible moment, perfect
team co-ordination and an opportunistic type of play combined
to make a potent attack—which
was all the more formidable due
to the New Zealand's perfect
conditioning and speed.
Skip McArthy and Hugh
Greenwood turned in outstanding defensive games in a contest
that was marked by excellent
Wing John Newton came up

GBS's Major Barbara
Power Packed Play
Players. Club presentation of Major Barbara which opened
Thursday night in the Auditorium proved to be loaded with
talent, satire and ideology. .
In the play set against the background of a munitions factory, George Bernard Shaw levelled his sights at nearly every
conceivable phase of English society and blasted the church,
the government, charity organizations, and the rational element
ih human character.
Cast mastered the involved theories of Shaw's play with
creditable ease, although at times the phrases seemed to flow
from his bust on the stage mantle piece rather than from the
characters themselves.
The characterizations representating a variety of social
levels were interpreted with uniformity and conviction by the
Sharon Scadding handled with sincerity the difficult role ol
Major Barbara, a Salvation enthusiast whose beliefs were shattered by teality. Bob Woodward rose to eloquent heights as the
intellectuals against the poor to protecting the poor from the
Greek professor who turned, in Shaw's words from arming thc
schilars and governors of England.
Some of Shaw's most succulent statements were made by
Andrew Undershaft brilliantly portrayed, the shrewd and visionary munitions manufacture and his family presented some ot
the greatest emotional climaxes in the play.
The vapid Sarah and her fiance, the bungling Charles,
played by Eve Newitt and Glenn O'Reilly provided refreshing
humour to the play's heavier moments as did Louise De Vick's
expert interpretation of Lady Undershaft, the society type who
covered up her basic materialism with a veneer of graciousness.
Some of the best acting was performed by the Salvation
Army converts,.who personified Shaw's idea that "it was cheap
work converting men with a bible in one hand and a slice of
bread in the other." Doris Chillcott, Peter Smith and Albert
Simpson gave outstanding characterizations.
Play tended to jerk and drag a bit in the opening scenes,
but picked up pace to reach gripping climax at the end. Scenery
and costumes were simple but effective, and the presentation
was hampered little by the usual "first night jitters."
Directed by Joy Coghill, "Major Barbara" will run Friday
and Saturday evening in the Auditorium.

Y^ Or No
Dean Andrew's statement that Faculty Council members
are too busy to prepare a statement of their stand on fraternity discrimination is the final slap in the face for students.
It is almost exactly one year since the following motion
was passed at a general AMS meeting, then forwarded to
Faculty Council:
"Whereas, the students of UBC regard racial and religious
discrimination as fundamentally evil, and;
"Whereas certain campus organizations practice such
discrimination, thereby bringing the narhe of the University
into ill repute;
"Therefore be it resolved that the Alma Mater Socie'ty
recommend to the Faculty Council that all campus organization! with discriminatory clauses be instructed to remove
such olauses within one year.".
Surely Faculty Council reached a decision when it met
Tuesday. The ultimatum requested by students Is generally
considered to be impractical and Faculty Council members
probably agreed. If they did, they should say so.
Faculty Council no doubt prefers to prepare a detailed
rationalization of their decision in order to soften criticism
from both without and within the university; it has constantly
exhibited an almost contemptible fear of the issue since it
was first raised two years ago.
But after waiting a year for an answer to their request
for an ultimatum, students* are no longer fussy. This was
shown by the recent Teacher Training demand for a quick
reply, one that could be digested by students before this
session's spring general meeting—now less than a week away.
A yes- or no answer is all that is needed, gentlemen.
Kiddies Must Play
Student Court's investigating committee, after a slow
start, has shown its worth by throwing out the silly charges
laid by Ken Perry and the Applied Science Undergraduate
One of the main objections to the Court's formation was
the fear that it would become a "playground for lawyers."
Perry and Roy Trimble, conspirators in the beer-drinking
farce, illustrated why this fear was prevalent, as they vied
for personal publicity while wasting the committee's time.
The committee's suggestion that characters like Perry and
Trimble attempt some constructive criticism of the court's
proceedings will likely be ignored by the type of law student
who quibbles over minor procedure at an AMS meeting.
But it at least shows that the committee will not tolerate
frivolous charges.
The Applied Science charge was not even laid by the
Undergraduate society. President Dave Dufton made the ridiculous charge against treasurer Goldsmith on his own authority and the embarrassed ASUS was forced to back him up.
All it proves is that some people on the Applied Science
executive are duller" than was generally realized.
Jf you kiddies must play, Perry, Trimble, and Dufton,
there are more suitable places than the Student Court.
Do You?
We were talking to a little bird the other day and he said
wasn't it nice how-the administration finally gave in to
students and threw up its hands and built a walk diagonally
across the corner of the library lawn because students insisted on walking across the grass, but wasn't it sort of unfortunate that students didn't do their part in co-operating
but instead kept walking on the grass even though the
ground is soft so that there probably won't be any grass
come summertime.
We agreed.
The University
Life, the greatest problem, the one and only real task we
face, is taken for granted at the University. We mjAst get on,
.there is no time to lose. University is just the preparation for
real responsibility. Actually one cannot take the student seriously, he is just half a man. Do we, the students, feel this
sort of attitude? Do we take it for granted, or do we rebel?
On our campus we possess flourishing faculties oi Engineering, Law, Agriculture, Medicine, Education, Graduate
Studies, and a smattering of the humanities. These names
suggest the needs of society—and this is wonderful indeed,
for all that we (society) need is right here. What more do
we require? Do you posess a vague suspicion that something
is lacking although you really don't know what it is?
You are afraid lo ask the professor, first of all, because
you don't know what to ask, add then the professor isn't
always inviting. He may say, "Study more—read your text"
or "That's a bunch of confusion, you'd better get it cleared
up." Would it be possible for a professor to talk to you as a
human being, with the eternally acute problem of life, instead
of talking to a student who should be concerned about his
At University we learn methods, not essence, we learn
how to produce things, be ohjectiv , possess a critical mind,
take care of our frustrations, appreciate our way of life—
and interminable emptiness.
Emptiness is the product of our universities. But we do
not perceive it. The cries of progress, defence, way of life,
standard of living drown out the crazy thing. We try to ignore
the abyss, and tho university helps us to do it. Would it be
possible at the University to try to discover our real needs,
our real problems, and to lace life realistically? Could we
not expect honesty and sympathy lo be a part of the University, or am I merely day-droaming???

Drifting Along
Not all patrons of the beaches
will admit their true purpose in
loafing there, however. There
are those who will say they are
sizing up thc driftwood situation for next winter's fuel supply; some will say it's the first
rest since a week Saturday;
others will claim to be collecting material for an essay on
public health as they nudge a
bag of orange peel with their
left toe.
But regardless of what they
say, they're at the beach, with
or without reason. That is significant. That, more than anything else I can think of at the
moment, justifies UBC.

Dr. Daniel Malan is doing
everything possible to grant
self-government to the colored
man, a veteran South African
clergyman told students Wednesday.
» Rev. R. W. Wighton, speaking
under the sponsorship of the Varsity Christian Fellowship, said
Malan's plan is "necessarily a
long range program."
"It would be ridiculous to
grant a franchise to people ignorant of any conditions but their
immediate needs," explained
Rev. Wighton, who spent 17
vears in South Africa.
And until the black man is
more highly educated, he said,
the only possible solution to the
racial problem now erupting in
South Africa is "a development

being improved, but until the

It As UBC Loses 42-3
Over 400 awe-struck rugby fans sat through an hour and

no punches in overrunning a game UBC Thunderbirds fifteen.
Incidental to the watchers was.

whistle cut off at 42-3, as the
famed All Blacks took advantage of the beautiful weather—in
direct contrast to the blustery,

of the spectators.

The biggest intramural boxing
and wrestling show to be staged
at UBC in manv a vear will be
held tonight in the War Memorial Gvm. The wrestling goes
at 7.30 with the boxing starting
at 8.30. Admission charge is
.iust 25c.
The wrestling promises to be
rough with loads of talent in
everv weight class. L. King of
Kaooa Sigs is a former intramural chamDion as is Denny
Dallas of KaDDa Sig. McMullen
of Anglican College is the present B. C. Amateur Middleweight champion and looks very
hard to beat in that class.
Refereeing the matches is
Dick Mitchell, hockev coach,
football coacli and British Empire Games wrestling chairman.
Assisting him are three able
members of hi.s BEG committee.
The boxing show should be
iust as good, with a great deal
of comDetition and class in the
draw. The main event is between Ernie Nvhaug of the
"exDlosion" punch, and • "Slugger" Saarinen. whose Phi Kap
fraternitv brothers are offering
2-1 on him. This is a heavyweight match and considering
the enormitv of the men it
should be a real ball. Incidentally these bovs were sparring
partners before the draw began.

Open Letter to Horvie Allan
Sports Editor, The Gateway, University of Alberta
Just thought I would drop you another line since you dian t
answer the letter I wrote to you before the Birds-Bears series.
I made a little wager in that letter, Harvie, and I'm sorry you
didn't take it up, although possibly you haven't the confidence
in your team one would think you had by reading your sports
Now I hate to pull the old "I told you so" line on you, Harvie,
but, if I-may, I'd like to quote from a column you wrote in your
paper last November 26: "Certainly,there doesn't seem to be a
team in the Alberta senior l^igi* whp can come close to giiving
the Golden Bears a contest. The same will likely hold true in
the intercollegiate league. Of course, it is perhaps a little premature to condemn the other university squads, but ... the Albertans have nothing to worry about. This is especially true of the
Manitoba Bisons and the Saskatchewan Huskies. UBC might be a
bit different. They might put up a fight before they go down for
the count of ton."
And from your February 25 paper, Harvie: "Maury Van
Vliet's 1954 edition of the Bears, currently riding on a 17-game
winning streak, is being rated by basketball second guessers as the
best ever to show at this university and possibly the strongest
court aggregation in Canada."
Now. Harvie, if Sears are the greatest in the country, where
does that put our Thunderbirds? We expressed the view here in the
previous letter that UBC could whip Alberta any day in the
week and a little series last week-end tort of proved the point. I
only wish that you could have been here. Harvie, to see those
Birds were near-perfect in that second game, Harvie, but
Bears didn't show enough in either game to convince anyone here
that they belong to our league, which happens to be a fairly
tough one called the Evergreen Conference. The winning team
in that Conference, Harvie, a school by the name of Whitworth, -is
the fifth-ranked small college in the U.S. and A. So if I was you,
Harvie, and I ain't, I would never again make the mistake of
judging a team because it beats another team by the ridiculous
score of 114-37. First consider the caliber of the team which
racked up the 37 points, it says here, and be a little leary of labelling teams "the strongest court aggregation in Canada."
At least four teams that I can think of, Harvie, just in this
district, could take your Bears to the cleaners. They are Vancouver
Eilers, Alberni Athletics, Victoria Kins and possibly Vancouver
Clover Leafs.
You state that Don Macintosh is the most-acclaimed hoop star
since Carl Ridd went to Manitoba. Just one question, Harvie—if
that is true then where oh where in the bloody, cock-eyed world
does that leave our John McLeod? Or maybe you're confusing
publicity and playing ability, Harvie?
I see in your paper that you're defending Van Vliet for that
114-37 fiasco since Maury is being roasted for his unsportsman-
liek action in Regina, Winnipeg and Edmonton. You state that
Maury has developed Lucht, Macintosh and Co. to perfection and
that over-100 scores just naturally follow.
But you forgot to mention. Harvie. that Van Vliet played his
first string for all that Saskatchewan game, that none of Lucht's
teammates shot if they could pass the ball to Lucht; that Lucht
didn't come back down the floor; that Bears rolled their free
shots off the hoop to the waiting Lucht and that Saskatchewan
refused to shoot in the last half as a protest against the humiliating way they were being beaten.
You forgot to mention these things Harvie. And if you
would have witnessed Birds 85-73 win over Bears you would have
seen how a coach acts when he is interested in his team, not just
scoring records. In 35 minutes Birds ran up 83 points against
Bears. Pomfret could have let his first squad in there and they
could have run up 100 points. But there was no purpose in it,
Harvie. Birds were 20 points ahead, they had won the game, so
all the subs were sent in.
Then Van Vliet gave up and sent in his second string. Now
Harvie. I think even you will admit that you have only six ballplayers on your club. The other four aren't worthy of a varsity
ball team. And one oi the reasons they aren't, Harvie, is because
Van Vliet leaves them on the bench while Lucht and his mates are
running up 114 points. Next year Birds lose three graduating
players, so' do Bears, But UBC will still have a fair team next
year, I doubt if Bears will.
Guess why, Harvie?      Could be 114-37 scores.
