Students Vote
On Referendum
This Week
As well as electing a new student
president, Wednesday students will
be asked to mark a referendum ballot' which will determine tho course
of AMS finances for future years.
Early in the year a committee
was formed to study the methods
of handling AMS finances as a result of charges of mismanagement
in the previous session. The committee after due deliberation realized the necessity for continuity of
policy in financial matters and discussed the appointment of a business manager.
Paul Plant, AMS treasurer, however, proposed the forming of a
finance board and the committee
adopted the proposal with three dissenting votes, In view of this failure to achieve complete unanimity,
the committee decided to "go.to the
people", and give the general student body the opportunity to decide
on the course of policy which will
control their  financial   affairs.
The students will be asked to
choose one of three courses which
ure listed hereunder:
1. The appointment of a Finance
Board which will consist of MAD
treasurer, and a representative from
each year excluding first year.
These board members will be selected by the students council from
applicants from the various years
and faculties. MAD treasurer will
handle MAD matters, the second
year representative. LSE and the
Board finances, the third year representative, USC matters, the fourth
year representative, LES and the
fifth year represenative will act as
assistant treasurer. AMS treasurer
will be chairman of the board. Much
of they administrative work will be
taken off the hands of the Treasurer
and handled by individual board
members for their particular,section
of student activity.
2.."Die hiring and employment of a
permanent business manager whose
duties would include taking over
much of the administrative duty of
the AMS treasurer and doing tho
actual business accounting. Such a
business manager would be a paid
employee of the AMS, Financial
policy would still be handled by the
elected treasurer.
3. Retaining a status quo set-up
lor at least another year,
Jn voting on the referendum, students will be asked to mark their
ballots according to their single
preference. Only one of the above
courses will be adopted,
BaZots wilf be given out upon
presentation of AMS cards at the
same time, and at the same places,
as those i'or the presidential election.

EUROPEAN LECTURE HALLS are crowded with earnest
diligent students pictured here eagerly listening to a lecture.
From such a.s these will be chosen outstanding DP and European students for the Canadian Reconstruction Scholarships
to be provided by ISS this year.
ISS Campaign Praised
By Campus Notables
Conducted by UBC Veterans for
International Scholarships
This week a campaign is being conducted among campus
veterans in support of the proposed scholarships and bursaries
for German and other European students sponsored by the
International Student Service.
Prominent campus figures have declared their wholehearted support of
this  worthwhile  effort.
President Norman Mackenzie stated
that "If we believe in our own system of government 1 think it is necessary that we try to keep democratic as much of the world a.s possible."
He said that this could be done by
demonstrating and explaining how we
function as a democracy to the people
of Europe. ''The very exchange of
people complete with ideas and customs i.s as valuable to Canadians as
it  is to  Europeans" he declared.
Dave E'rousson, AMS president,
pledged his support to thc campaign
a.s did Legion president, Mike Lakes,
who stated that he believed that the
one dollar experiment was too ebon;)
to pay for what ho considered to br
a most commendable experiment in
post-war  relations.
There has already been considerable response to the appeal. Bill
Cameron, first, contributor and ex-
POW. declared when interviewed:
''Vitally necessary international understanding and goodwill cannot be
maintained while we hold to the
creed of 'an eye for an eye.' We niu.-i
have a community of nations."
Contributions can be made all this
week and total support for the cam-
j paign on  the campus i.s expected.

Ian Mackenzie, this year's Junior
Member, pointed out that die financial condition of UBC has in the past

fees would be to cut the cost cf production of UBC's student newspaper.

Curran pledged himself to enthusiastically back construction plans for
a medical faculty, thc War Memorial
Gymnasium anrl a campus residence

Curran, described for campaign purposes as "the big little man for a big
job", wants also to "organize and
coordinate campus activity, to forward
UBC and the AMS, and to promote
through NFCUS, the maintenance of
the position of UBC"
Baum blasted Mackenzie's support
of the idea of continuity for Council
Members. "By preserving a so-called
continuity, one is liable to run into
the situation of where members say:
'That's not the way we did it last
year', with the result that new ideas
are squashed  completely.''
McConnell, veteran radioman, pledged himself, lo making up the remaining deficit in funds of $12,000. "I would
like to pay tribute to the present
administration," he stated. "It is foi
a continuation of that policy for which
I ask your endorsement."
McConnell said that the "fostering
and cooperation of the AMS for a
strong alumni fund" is vital. "Potentialities in scholarships would he
more   fully   realized."   he   concluded.
Final .speaker Jim Sutherland, com-
m< nting on the question of a business
manager, came out emphatically in
t'avor  of  such   ;-.   post.
"He is the lured help . . . we hire
to do the job we haven', got the time
or perhaps desire to do." Sutherland
He emphasized thai the business
manager would be under student supervision.
Commenting on a recent editorial
in The Daily Ubyssey, which argued
that the student offices offered experience in responsibility that would
be offset by appointment of a manager, Sutherland commented that "Experience can  be very  costly."

Army Huts Are False Economy
The false economy of housing complete
UBC faculties in fire trap army huts has
been proven in two costly disasters this term.
In addition to the loss of laboratory equipment, lecture accommodation and books at a
time when the university is hard pressed to
provide these services, students in both of
this winter's fires have suffered the loss of ir-
replacable theses, essays and research
At the end of the war when UBCs population trebled overnight, the university made
a courageous pledge to accept all students,
veterans or non-veterans. It commandeered
and cajoled for the abandoned army huts
which would provide the lecture room space
for its mushroomed student body. Army huts
filled the breach for lecture rooms, but army
huts are obviously dangerous depositaries for
invaluable books and papers.
For three years UBC's law library ha.s
been housed in exactly the same type of hut
a.s those swept by fire this year.
If UBC's law library is next (in the army
these huts were given two and a half minutes
I'or complete destruction) volumes which can
be  replaced  nowhere  in  the  world  will be
The time ha.s come for courageous action
from the provincial government to match
the forthrightness of the university itself in
meeting the original problem of increased
Three years ago the university was promised a permanent home economics building
in the government's five million dollar building program. But other buildings with higher
priorities came first and ate up the money
allocated for home economics.
University planners are considering building still more ly.its similar to those now at
University Boulevard and the Main Mall.
It is a dangerous expedient.
A university which must always face the
fear that its work may be destroyed in one
night can never fully concentrate on its important functions, a fact that must be considered by the provincial House which i.s due
to open in Victoria before the end of thi.s
Where Are The Beer And Pretzels
Have the days of beer-and-pretzel political campaigns gone forever?
Judging from the results so far UBC students can look forward to election campaigns
about as sparkling as yesterday's ale.
It is certainly no reflection on the maturity of the candidates to conduct their campaigns with a eye to attracting votes from the
thousands of students who are nol interested
in colorless election speeches.
The plea that it takes a lol of money lo
conduct a colorful campaign is nonsense. Ask
Dave Brousson.
Without this crowd-catching type of extravaganza students lose interest in the elections and minority machine politics begins
to become effective. That's the greatest single
danger that student government has to face.
Less than 600 students turned out to hear
yesterday's speeches but we suggest that 6000
would come to watch pretty girls parade
along the Mall—and learn more about the
candidates in the bargain.
Students can only be sold by a show, the
seconders have provided the actors, it's up
lo  them  to  provide the entertainment,
'Efficiency   Can Be Dangerous
Whatever advantages may seem to demand the appointment of a full-time business
manager for the Alma Mater Society, there
can be no doubt that a permanent stranger
in student government can only decrease the
freedom which undergraduates have come
to accept as an essential part of their campus
This i.s the issue which voters will face
tomorrow. Is it worth the sacrifice of self-
government to gamble on the possibility of
increased  efficiency  in   Ihe  paper  work  ad
Past councils who ruled with the assistance1 of a business manager found to their
chagrin that government was not entirely in
their hands. It was only natural that fresh-
laced councillors new to their jobs should
lespecl the advice of a business manager who
was far more familiar with the Alma Society
than any of its members. And this advice,
when the Alma Mater Society employed a
manage;-, far too often transgressed into the
field of policy rather than administration.

indeed a master of self-contradiction, and is adept at tossing off

Tlie following quotations typify the

tho Bible as a basis of spiritual

Before closing thi.s letter I would
remind my zealous friend of some
v.orcls written by John Stuart Mill
about his father, the noted 19th
Century agnostic.
"He found it impossible to believe
that a wdrld so full of evil was the
v. ork of an author combining infinite power and perfect goodness."»

make a Hell—who would create the
human race with the infallible foreknowledge, and therefore with the
intention that the great majority of
them were to be consigned to hor-
liblc and  everlasting  torment,"
Well, fellow student! Is this the
God that you would ask us to prostrate ourselves before'.' I would be
glad to hear from you at your earliest convenience, in this column.
Respectfully yours,
Editor, The Daily Ubyssey: Sir-
'n reply to a childish protest against
llif unrestricted use of reason which
a,.poared in the Ubyssey of Jan. 2.1,
1 should like to offer two arguments and raise two questions,
which, if the writer had considered,
aiight have prevented him from
evacuating  his  emotions  in  print.
First, the acceptance of the "plan
oi salvation" mentioned by the
writer, must, if it involves partial
failures of imperfections of detail
es in thc case of Nebuchadnezzar
and total failures as in tho case of
at least one UBC student, also imply
: corresponding defect in the ported, omniscient and omnipotent
Maker,    If   it   is   claimed   that   thc
'plan" is perfect when viewed in
its entirety by God, the imperfections existing only for finite mind,
1 leply that such a God is shortsighted! and besides, tho "plan"
exists solt'y for God's creatures.
God himself needs neither salvation, edification, nor entertainment.
Second, if we assume that God's
nature does not admit of the moral
taint which must attach to any being who creates an imperfect world
it follows that since God is omniscient and can only act as a purposive agent. He did not create the
Does thc "UBC student" admit

can both be true if they are contraries?
Does "UBC student" question one
cf the beliefs that he finds in the
Bible, and if so does he regard thc
authority of the Bible or any pais
of the Bible as a guarantee of the
beliefs with which he is in agreement?
It is enly in the interests of genuine religious experience and philosophy that one needs to combat blasphemous exhortations to worship
as being unintelligible and offensive, both (o intellect and the higher

Editor:   Daily  Ubyssey,  Sir:
After reading your "impartial"
line up of candidates for student
body president, I felt that a few
additional notes of explanation
might be of some assistance to the
students who, after all, might like
to really know the candidates,
I was most favourably impressed
by the way in which three of the
candidates received very complimentary and "student pleasing"
notices. There was one candidate
however, who left me slightly
puzzled. Who is this fearsome fellow Jim Sutherland? — this socialist   politician  avid,  no less).
E'eing naturally suspicious of
thoio politician fellows, I felt urged
to investigate this fearsome debator
and sec if he were as tough a.s his
photo warrants, because, I felt, this
fair campus should not be overcast

Can you imagine my surprise
when I wasyntrodueed to this chup
Jim Sutherland. Ho was so quiet
and so unlike his picture in the
It was mentionel also that he was
a veteran, but not quite in the same
descriptive terms as the other veteran candidates. Just to enlarge
slightly on that one word veteran,
it might be added that Jim Sutherland served three years in Greece,
Italy, North Africa, Crete and
Malta in the air-crew of the RCAF.
Jim Sutherland's student activities have, in the past two years,
been limited to being president of
the Varsity United Nations Club
in 1947-48, (a hot bed of Socialist
revolt) and president of the Parliamentary Forum, (another socialist
After another quick perusal of the
original article in your paper, I felt
that (here was one accurate and
well meant (it is to be hoped) word
and that is respected.
Thanks for (he space and the
opportunity to remove the political tinge from the forthcoming student elections.

Editor. The Daily Ubyssey; Sir-
As campaign manager for Jim Suth-
i Hand in his bid for president of
AMS, may I draw attention to the
serious omission of Jim's war record   in  your  paper  yesterday?
Jim joined the R.C.A.F. in June
1940, and soon received his commission, As Fit. Lt. he did two
tours of service; one in thc Bay of
Biscay and the other in the Mediterranean. At one time his plane
was shot down. Later, in England,
he served as an instructor in antisubmarine warfare.

her little heart) thought we were "perfect."
Miserable Old Cynics
But gee—let's not get so hard and calloused about aU this that when some little
girl, with her heart in her eyes and a shining
little tiara of heavenly stars in her hair,
thinks that she has the perfect man (and
maybe she has, by Harry) that we can lean
back in our chairs, stroke our mustaches, and
say ha ha.
No, Paul. Maybe there aren't any perfect
husbands in this world, and we miserable old
cynics are right, after all; and that little girl
is wrong.
But gosh, even if in terms of the historical
imperative, or the matrimonial absolute, she
i.s wrong, yet she seems to be happy. And
proud, too.
Why, without, any trouble at all, you can
see her standing there, with her hand on his
arm, and that look on her face, for all the
world to see.
And it isn't hard to imagine her a.s she
kissed him goodbye, as he left for work in the
morning, and dropped her hands from his
coat lapels, and stood there in the doorway
watching him until he reached the corner,

And how, thinking of Him, she sighed,
went inside; and then (thinking of you, Paul)
sat down at her new writing desk; and wilh
a   small   Hurry  of  resolution,   she  picked   up
her wedding gift stationery (with the new
prefix "Mrs." before her new name) and
wrote a little note to you, telling you how
wrong  you   were.
It was her little act of love, you see; something she wouldn't—couldn't—tell her husband when he came home, but she had to tell
someone how happy she really was.
And you, Paul,
What did you say?
You Wise Man, You
You were so wise, you Marriage Ekpert,
that you reached out your Expert hand,
picked up your Expert pen, dipped into your

Maybe you're right, Paul, Maybe she will
write you ten years from today, and say; Mr.
Marriage  Expert,  you  were  right, after all.
But I hope she never does, Paul, And I
hope you are wrong.
It may be the valour of ignorance, old

Prexy Candidates Outline Platforms    Abstract Art Amazing
Five presidential candidates facing student voters Wednesday list their platforms below. Polls will be open from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All AMS students are eligible to vote.
Gordon Baum: Representative Student
Council; Maintain Rigid Fiscal Policy
In accepting this nomination I do so without any doubts as
to the irtimensity of the task. My experience on the campus has
brought me in contact with practically every university group
including the Administration and Alumni which ha.s enabled me
to appreciate the problems and the points of views of each.
Ben McConnell: Maintain Autonomy
And Responsibility of Student Govt.
My platform as far as can be planned on paper and based on a closer
cooperation wilh these groups is:
1. To establish a representative Student Council in lieu of the present
inadequate quasi-bicameral (Council
—USC) system. I am convinced that
(his can be achieved without increasing the Council to more than 15
members. • '
2. To maintain a rigid fiscal policy.
3. To keep the student body better
informed of the financial position of
the Society.
4. To coordinate the functions of
the  "Service"  clubs.
Ian Mackenzie: Fee Reduction Plan;
Support of NFCUS; Increased Efficiency
If I am elected, I can offer continuity on Council to carry
forward the work begun this year.
My   platform   is:
1, To reduce student  fees, by: •
The  early   building  of   the   War
Memorial Gym.
Increasing   participation   in   athletics.
Publishing  the  Ubyssey  at   one-
half  the  present   cost.
Applying  the  budget  surplus   to
the reduction  of  fees.
2, To continue our good public relations policy by supporting:
The   administration's   Public   Relations policy,
3, To increase thc efficiency of the
organisation within the AMS by ensuring:
Tlie better functioning of USC.
Thai  student  publicai'ic ns  are  on
the campus on time.
By   continued   co-ordination   and
control of AMS functions.
Jim Sutherland: To Hire Business
Manager; Foster Student Exchange
In soliciting your support for my candidacy as AMS president, I pledge my support to:
1. The encouragement and development of club and extra-curricular activities.
2. A broader intcr-changc of students between this university and
others, both foreign and  domestic.
3. The   system   of   finance   decided
upon by you in the forthcoming refer-      e<
My personal recommendation on
this last point is the hiring of a paid
employee  as  business  manager.
Whether you vote for me or not,
I earnestly request you to get out
and vote, and regardless of the outcome 1 promise my complete support
to whomever  is successful.
Harry Curran: Construction of Medical
Faculty; Better Co-ordination on Campus
As a candidate for the office of president of the Alma
Mater Society I pledge myself to active participation in NFCUS
and the maintainance of UBC's leadership in that body.

the element of imagination in one of

Editor. The Daily Ubyssey: Sir-
Recent sports editorials and pool-
reports of games have come to my
notice. As a visitor to the city, and
without prejudice apart from an
interest in college sports. I feel free
to make comments.
The heading "what's wrong with
our basketball teams" struck me as
peculiarly bad taste in a college
paper supposed to bc supporting
student activities. There arc some
other questions I wculd like to ask.
Having been to some recent evening
games in your gym. I was surprised
al the comparatively poor attendance and lack of spirit amongst thc
students who were present. Such
i imarks a.s those written in your
sports page, of cour.se, would hardly
help   to  draw  a   crowd.
Also noticed a lack of sportsmanship off the floor by some students
who apparently never played a
tiam game in their lives judging
by the evident hick of knowledge
in i'he jeers and remarks addressed
to their own team, the referees, and
even the visiting teams. Now it
would only be natural to expect college teams to receive proper support
from the student' body, the faculty
and the college paper. Surely the
teams have a right to expect and
receive  encouragement.
On reading an article by ene
"Ron Pinchin" (I quote) "It's what
goes on between the lines that'
counts"—a knowledge of snorts in
colleges leads me to assuie the
writer that there is nothing ''between the lines" but sheer hard
work between daily practices and
weekend home games and trips.
Most of the social affairs have to
be sacrifiod. A.s for the quality of
lhe team itself at UBC this year
\ou have a new combination of good
players, and consequently a learn
in   the  making.
In I'his transition period they
have been forced to move up into
suffer competiticn, the reasons for
which are common knowledge.   Il  ia
quite possible that the players don't
entirely enjoy losing too many games
either. So why rub it in when you
understand the reasons for it? My
opinion is that you have a first class
team in the making, which will
show in time. In any case they play
games   worth   watching.
Since starting this letter, the news
has come through of Vhe game won
at Bellingham.
My   question   is   "What's   wrong
with   the  student  body  and  your
sports page".   Your teams are O.K.
Support  them.
Editor, Thc Daily Ubyssey: Sir-
Would you be kind enough to print
this plea for support of the student-
sponsored fund for bringing German   students   to   Canada.
When tTie resolutions pertaining
to this fund were introduced at the
last AMS meeting, they were endorsed almost unanimously by the
student body. I doubt that it was
the eloquence of Cliff Greer, who
was only barely audible over the
loudspeakers, which determined the
meeting to pass these resolutions.
Rather it was a realization that
understanding and human sympathy
are the only means by which international goodwill can be achieved.
This, together with the natural student camaradie, transoenchng international barriers, and an appreciation of the implications and immense possibilities of such a project,
captured our imaginations.
1 am certain that there is nothing
whicii   wc.   as  students,   can   do   to
further   goodwill    amongst    peoples
which   is  likely  to  have   better  and
more lasting effects than these proposals.   We were enthusiastic about
tho   plan   when   it   was   introduced,
and   tho  possibilities  are  still   real,

Three Seasons Together
Cooperation Sparks
Defencemen's Success
UBC's top defensive combination
of Bob Saunders and Terry Nelford
seemed destined to be given all-star
rating this season.
Bob and Terry have worked together on defense for three seasons
and are familiar with each others
style   and   abiliu.
HMl\   M II OR!)
. . .   UrtiisiiiHoType
Terry Nelford. now 2a. is a bruising type of di'I'oriM.'iiian and puis
his Hi,) pounds to ({nod use on opposing forwards. Terry learned !vs
hockey in Saskatchewan and played
J.inior Hockey with Prince Albert
Jr. Black Hawks, a famous team
in Prairie Hockey Circles. While
!ltill a junior, lie tried out with the
NHL Detroit Hod Willis. The war.
however,    interrupted    his    hockey
career as he spent three years in
the  RCAF.
He played service hockey with
Ci.lgary RCAF and with North Bay
of Ontario Senior Hockey loop.
Upon discharge Terry felt his calling and decided on an education
instead of a hockey career, A^ UBC
he enrolled in Physical Education
f.r.d will graduate as a major in
that  course this year.
Now playing his fourth year of
hockey at Varsity, he has received
lloee Bifj Blocks and has certainly
(arni-d a fourth. In his fourth sea-
lei; with the 'Birds, Terry has
missed only one hockey game in
which  his team  has competed:
The choice of Terry as an all-star
defensenian is based on the fact
that he hits harder and tries harder
than any man in the' league with
the exception of his mate, Bob
Boh Saunders plays right defense
i'or the Birds and is die Captain
of the Student Squad, a honour he
lias had I'or throe seasons.
Boh is now 2-1 and is a fourth
year Applied Science student. His
{M-aduntion will leave a big gap in
the team's defense. He played his
minor hockey in Vernon, a rod hot
interior hockey town. With Vernon
High School and. the Junior Hydrophones for four years, Bob developed   into a  classy   forward.
His first season at Varsity saw
play centre forward on the 'Birds
top line and lead the entire league
in scoring. He was moved back to
defense to fill the gap and became
such a defensive standout that he
has-' remained there ever since. On
occasions since he has played every
position on the team including goal
ot which he was a sensation.
Now in his fourth year in a
Thunderbird uniform, Bob has won
three Big Blocks, and numerous all-
... Team Captain
star awards. Bob is a terrific body
checker and opposing forwards observe more than ordinary precaution
when coming in on t'he right side,
Bob Saunders is undoubtedly the
greatest team man on the squad.
His spirit and exuberance serve as
a standard which keeps the entire
team hustling at all times. He is
certainly a player and a student of
which this University can be proud.  I
Cowan, Frazee
Paced by Gordy Cowan and
John Frazee, UBC skiers dominated the final phase of the
Vancouver City Ski championships held Sunday on Grouse
Mountain. Cowan captured
slalmon honors, Frazee showing the way in the downhill.   ,
Frazee established a record for the
longest downhill race ever staged on
local slopes, with a time of three minutes, 28 seconds. He also paced second in the slalom to win combined
Taking the combined was no easy
feat, final tabulations showing Frazee

With Late Rally
University of Alberta Golden Bears
held off a desperation attack from the
University of Saskatchewan Huskies
to take the fifth game of the best
of seven series for the Western Canada Intercollegiate Hockey Championship by a tight 7-6 score.
Playing on their home ice Saturday
night, Huskies held a substantial lead
going into the last period but almost
had the game swept from under
them when in ihe last four minutes
of regulation time of play, the Alberta
squad burst forth with four counters,
but failed to make the tying goal.
At least one more game must be
held in the series to determine the
Champion of* the West.
Fans on the UBC campus arc looking forward to the results of this
series since rumors have been heard
that the winner may travel to Vancouver for a series with the Thunderbirds.

The win for UBC was in the second
game of a home and home serres that
they split with the Vikings of Western
Washington College of Education. The
'Birds now have a firm hold on sixth
place and the Vikings are in fifth.
But it was Dave Campbell that
really showed the way for the Pomfretmen in the Saturday night tiff,
Campbell had been warming the bench
right through the tussel until about
two minutes of the second half.
And then when vhe^ fireballing Bird-
man did hit the floor he snagged the
first rebound he could get his hands
on and then the whole 'Bird aggregation came to life.
Usually it is the first eight minutes
of ,the second half that spells the
downfall of the 'Birds, but not Saturday night.
And then the 'Birds swung into the
lead and held on. Campbell kept up
the fireball pace. Munrom, who had
been oht Friday with a bad ankle,
began to hit vhe hoop in that old
'Bird style, and the boys were away.
The sizeable crowd of UBC students
that found their way to the college
gym at Bellingham yelled themselves
hoarse from there on in as their team
began to take on the semblance of a
red-hot ball club.
"Long John" put a few of his hook
?hots, and actually scored most of his
free shots, previously the 'Birds big
Top Position at

Puck Contest
UBC Thunderbird tackle the
Westminster Cubs on Wednesday night at the Forum. TTiis
is the last game for the locals
until the play-offs.
The game will be worth four points
to the winners due to a revised schedule. These four points are essential
to the Birds if they are to cop tcp
position in the league.
For this important encounter the
'Bird lineup will be intact. BUI House
will likely guard the lacing for the
locals in this game. The outstanding
performance of Don Adams last week
will make it difficult to leave him
out. Bill has also shown superlative
ability at times and might come up
with another of his top performances.
The 'Bird squad is now firmly entrenched in second place and should
they win they will be but one game
