Campus Court
By Council
The first Student Court at
UBC to be selected from the
student body at large was established at the Monday meeting of
Student Council, as called for by
tbe new AMS discipline code.
The Court was originally to
have'ttfMMTflirfttJlfjflint meeting of the incoming and outgoing Student Councils this spring,
but it was felt necessary to appoint a temporary court to deal
with eventual interim cases.
Appointed to serve on the
Court until March 22, 1934, were
Terry Nicholls, Law 1; Joe Schlesinger, Arts 4; Jean Taylor, Arts
4; Bill Tracey, App.Sc. 3, and
Bill Whyte, Phys.Ed. 4.
First to appear before thc
Court may be the campus CCF
club, depending on whether the
Student Council investigating
committee succeeds in laying
charges against the club for allegedly distributing pamphlets
on the campus illegally.
The pamphlets criticized the
Social Credit government, and
permission to distribute was allegedly not obtained.

An explanation for Teacher Training's low standing in the-
blood drive has been given by a worried professor from that
faculty. *
Professor Kenneth Argue said that teaching students have
been off the campus for the past two weeks, during a period oi
practice teaching which will last f
until February 13. "They simply
haven't been here to give blood,"
said Professor Argue.

Tories Pass
Policy Bill
With Ease
Campus Conservatives easily
carried an immigration bill at
an almost deserted Mock Parliament session Thursday noon in
Arts 100 .
Only 34 people attended the
meeting, and by 18 to 18 vote
the Conservatives became the
first party in more than two
years to carry a bill without support from another party.
The government introduced an
Immigration Act that was strongly contested by the CCF and
four Liberal members present.
Social Credit and LPP parties
were not represented at the
The bill provided for an immigration policy based on
choosing immigrants able to become useful Canadian citizens.
The main provisions were free
transportation to Canada for immigrants, and a four month
course in citizenship for new
The Act would also encourage
industry by giving large quotas
to industrial countries and loaning European firms the capital

The CCF challenged almost
every point in the bill. It charged that the Government was reverting to a nordic basis for
immigration, and that the bill
would open the way for foreign
exploitation of Canadian natural
CCF also stated that the Act
seemed to have a definite religious bias since the quotas for
predominantly Roman Catholic countries were relatively low.
The Liberals said that the bill
was too ambigous and might allow the Government to rule by
order  in council.
Vaccination Clinic
Smaillpox vaccinations must
be wearing off some UBC students, since revaccination is required every five to seven years.
Dr. A. Kenneth Young, Director of the University Health
Service, has announced that the
annual vaccination clinics will
be open at the end of the present  blood donor  clinic.
Committee  Recommends
Seven Charges Be Made
A student committee investigating the UBC food situation
has attacked the cafeteria as "a disgrace to the university" and
has recommended seven changes in the campus food service.
The committee, under the chairmanship of Don Jabour, was
set up by Sludent Council to in
vestigate complaints of students
regarding food services and has
submitted a nine-page report to
council outlining its recommendations.
"Not all the blame for the disgusting nature of the cafeteria
can be placed on the fraternities
and sororities," the report states.
The fault lies mqre with the ar-.
rangement of the facilities."
"The metal chairs, remnant of
a previous age, should be replaced in their entirety," the report continues. "These chair-
are so unstable that they are
more secure on their backs than
on their feet. The result is that
the cafeteria looks like a shambles even though most of the
overturned chairs are not caused
by student riots.
As a permanent body to investigate the complaints and criticisms of students regarding the
food situation, the committee recommended that a four-man group
be formed, to consist of the presidents of Fort and Acadia camps,
a member of student council,
and a student responsible for the
food outlets on campus.
Prices for board in the residences and basic meals ln the
cafeteria should not be increased,
said the.Mrepp^.e^fin tiuHAgh a
slight increase would mean a
higher quality in the food.

In the midst of this romantic stew is Tina, the innkeeper's gullible daughter, a country thrush who is persuadec' to
join the confidence men's burlesque show, an art form
which the innocent miss believes is only slightly inferior
to opera.

Why Not MUS?
Since the position of the Women's Undergraduate Society's representative on Student Council is chosen on the next
election slate Wednesday, it might be wise to take a good
look at the importance of this position in our student government.
Th,e truth is that the WUS rep on Council is useless at
the moment. The position is powerless and unnecessary.
The present WUS member is a capable person, but she
exerts no influence on Council and is treated as befits her
impotent position.
Two candidates will battle it out for the WUS position
on Wednesday. One of them was hand-picked by the present
member. The second is running only because of the overtures
of the election officer who doesn't want to see another position
taken by acclamation.
If Council is so stupid as to allow this position to remain
they might as well establish another position which would be
as equally ridiculous: Men's Undergraduate Society.
No Exceptions
AH AMS elections are supposedly run according to the
AMS constitution. One of the regulations is that once a
student enters the room where ballots are being counted! he
must not leave until the counting is completed.
As the results were being tabulated Wednesday night,
one of the candidate's henchmen entered the counting room
obviously to learn how the balloting was progressing. When
he had obtained this information, he slipped out. Although a
protest was made, Jim McNish, AMS elections officer, refused
to investigate or lay a charge. The Student Council PRO
dropped into the counting room twice and left again. Yet
none of the other people in that room were allowed to leave
until every single ballot in the arduous transferable voting
system was counted.
Chief returning officer Frank Carrol resigned Thursday
morning. Mr. McNish should learn that if rules and regulations are to be enforced, they have to be enforced on everyone.
Redekop Answered
We are very grateful to Mr. John Redekop for giving
us 'this opportunity to clear up some misconceptions with
regard to the banning of the film "Martin Luther" by the
Quebec Censorship Board.
Permit us to quote an Anglican clergyman who wrote
the following to The Gazette after having seen the film at a
private showing in Montreal. Wrote Canon Kenneth Naylor:
"The picture is more than history; it is propaganda, and in
the circumstances, while it puts forward one church it discredits another . . . But there is another angle to the whole .
matter. From the point of view of the public the picture is
a mistake. Here we are in the middle of the Twentieth Century fighting for our lives against indifferentism, materialism,
philosophical atheism and communism. There is not a Church
in Christendom which is not being attacked; yet with all the
resources at our disposal we produce a picture which is not
only a defence of one Church but by implication an attack
on another. I can quite imagine all the enemies of the
Church chanting with glee: "See how these Christians love
one another."
While the picture was not intended for public showing in
the first place, the above mentioned reasons make it not too
hard to understand why the film was unwanted in Quebec.
But make no mistake about it—tho Catholic Church has not
banned the film in Quebec or any other place.
The Quebec civil authorities had earlier banned the
films "Oliver Twist" and "Black Narcissus" because they
gave a distorted impression of such Quebec minority groups
as the Jews and the Anglicans. We do not recall to have seen
any guest; editorials by a Mr. John Redekop at those occasions.
If the Catholic Church has to "shelter itself in the confines of censorship," why is it that it is taking the hazardous risk to let Catholics see the film here in B.C.?
Why is it that the Legion of Decency has not "forbidden"
Catholics to see the film, but only pointed out its propagandists nature to alert the critical sense of those who might
need it? Remember, Mr. Redekop, there are many wayji of
writing history!
We agree with Redekop that before we attack the
Americans for McCarthyism wo ought, to sweep our own
doorstep. But after all, what is McCarthyism but the result of
one ma*i enthroning his personal concept of democracy?
Could il, not bo that Redekop has been performing a
little crowning ceroinom of his own -or perhaps he has discovered the one correct definition of the word democracy?
ii Redekop is such a champion of freedom and democracy,
let him start his doorstep cleaning right here in B.C. Or
perhaps he thinks ii is democracy to double-tax Catholic
parents in this province who want to send Iheir children to
parochial schools?
Can freedom and responsibility be separated, Mr. Redekop?

The words of questionable
intellectual weight which
have appeared here for the
past five weeks have at last
met with criticism.
I was beginning to think
they'd never make it, tout someone has mustered the temerity

columnists of this newspaper
might apply themselves to better things, in view of the accomplishments of writers of an
earlier era.

is, of course, inTRACTable, and
though I may be an AB'STRAC-
Tionist, I conTRACTed to do
this little thing every week in
the wistful hope that it might
provide, among other things,
some TRACTlon for student
reaction. This seems to have
been accomplished without necessitating the use of a single
aggie TRACTor.
Writ £y Hand
The effort is by no means
inTRACTile, but due to my
normally TRACTable nature 1
perhaps felt that too much progress at the start would only
serve to drive readers to dis-
TRACTion. In the hope that
it has done more to atTRACT
readers than to subTRACT
their numbers, I shall continue
to AB'STRACT whatever I care
to and as AB'STRACTly as I
see fit.
In fact, the TRACT, ln order
to exTRACT the most reaction
will more often take the form
of a proTRACTion, rather than
a conTRACTion, unless the editors decide on disciplinary action. But now, as far as this
portion of today's offering Is
concerned, I prove myself con-

An Exploitation
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I am indeed glad to know
that my editorial of last Friday
provoked as much discussion
and thought as it did. May the
net result be greater knowledge
and more progressive thinking.
Apparently, a few people are
not clear on the nature of the
issue. The important point to
bear in mind is that the issue
is entirely a political one. True
it is related to religion, but the
controversy as clearly stated
in my proposed resolutions hinges on man's right to knowledge and civil freedoms. Those
who might persist in thinking
of the issue as being religious
are, I feel, coloring the resolutions with their own Ideas concerning the theological principles of the Catholic Church.
I have no intention of debating the pros and cons of tran-
substantiation, infallibility, indulgences, confessionalism, sacraments, or any other tenet of
the Catholic faith. As far as I
am concerned, very little of
anything can be gained by ar-
gu4ng religion. In striving to
win someone to my faith, I will
succeed only to the extent that
I live it consistently in all situations and at all times, not by
debating it.
In ,a democratic country,
every man is entitled by law
to hold those religious views he
chooses. I am not attempting to
coerce anyone into an'apologetic explanatory position for doing so. I am merely deploring
the political techniques used in
furthering a religious cause.
When 401,730 non<!atholics
(1951 census) in Quebec are
forbidden the opportunity to
view an historically correct
film, I honestly feel that at least
we, as students, should have
our attention drawn to this

Charm And Wit

He's known for his bowties, his
charming smile and his quick
wit. His bluenose burr classifies him instantly to his listener as a marltimes man. In spring
he is rumoured to sport a delightful pair of light denim shoes.
Although holding the administrative position of Deputy to the
President, Dean Geoffrey C.
Andrew clings tenaciously to his
single English 100 class.
It keeps him in contact with
students, he says, maintaining
that where possible, the administration should have a hand in
teaching the students.
He has been spotted lecturing
on Keats and Shelly from a reclining position on his desk, or
swinging his blue denim feet
vigorously over the heads of
his front row students.
His classes have been so absorbed in his lecture that they
ignore the bell and reluctantly
leave only after Dean Andrew is
forced to dismiss them.*
He has a wife, four children,
a dog called Patches and a house
filled with books and paintings.
Last fall he visited several
American universities in his first
stage of a Carnegie grant which

Tony Lloyd
Elected VP
By Liberals
Tony Lloyd, campus Liberal
Club President, was recently
elected vice-president of the Canadian University Liberal Feder-
ation at their Quebec City convention, January 22-23.
Two of the eight resolutions
passed were proposed by Lloyd,
UBC delegate. These resolutions advocated that registered
drug addicts be given free narcotics and that Indians should receive equal treatment in education and franchise.
Held at Chateau Laurier, the
(convention was addressed by
Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent, Secretary of State Jack
Pickersgill, and Defense Minister Brooke Claxton.

mean increasing the costs to out-
of-town students by $70.
Hamburgers and hot dogs in
the afternoon was another of the
recommendations put forth by
the committee. This was suggested because the Food Services
Department made a profit on the
sale of these items, and because
of this, the price of the main
meals was kept down.
For students studying in the
Library at night, it was suggested that a mobile snack bar be
opened in the vicinity of the library for the sale of coffee, do-
nuts, chocolate bars and cigarets.
Suggested times were between
8:45 and 9:15 p.m.
An advertising program to inform students of the food facilities available on campus, was
also recommended by the committee. This might be done
through posters and displays in
The Ubyssey.
To make necessary improvements in the present food set-up,
it was recommended that "the
board of Governors make a special capital grant to the food ser- j
vices department."
Members of thc committee besides  .labour   were   Allan   Goldsmith, student council represent
Doctor Trendall, who said he is
"a very happily married man,
went on to compare the froth oi
a glass to the courtship and the
remainder of the glass to the
proper marriage life and various
relationships between the part
Among these relationships he
listed agreement on religious differences, on money affairs, sex
relationships and friends of the
partners made before marriage.
Dr. Trendall emphasized that
familiarity need not breed contempt but should on the other
hand lead to more consideration
He reminded the audience
which seemed to include at least
three nearly - engaged couples,
that the man should show great
consideration and love in his sex
relationship with the girl who
"needed much more stimulation"
and gave much more to it than
did the man.

completely shut down on the orders of one man, he said, and
therefore many men have been
put out of work.
A CCF government would provide a steady yield rather than
the fluctuating system now prevalent, he added.
The plan of forest management is not working out as it was
hoped • when it was started, and
though the timber Is not being
overcut, the public should have
control of its own land, he said.
He urged the government to
set up a commission to look into
the forest situation as was recommended by Chief Justice
Sloan ten years ago. "The Social

an investigation before it goes
out of office."
Cold Attacks EUS
Too, Bares Bricks
It wasn't termites, nor Arts-
men , but frost that created that
scar on the east wall of the
Applied   Science building.
Approximately 11 square
yards of facing have fallen from
the wall since the onset of the
recent cold spell, leaving the
underlying brick tile exposed.
Leonard Bailey, assistant superintendent of buildings and
grounds, says the wall, an unfinished one, will probably be
waterproofed as soon as the
weather permits.

"We are going back to the
Mainland of China," declared
Mr. S. D. Leung of the Chinese
Consulate Monday, speaking to
the Chinese Varsity Club on
"Free China Today."
Six hundred thousand troops
waiting on Formosa and more
than one •million guerillas already on the mainland would
sign that statement, Consul Leung said.
The importance of Free China
is not Formosa's 14,000 square
miles, nor eight million people,
said Consul Leung, but primarily the great strategic value of
the island in the defense of the
Almost equally important is
the determination of the Chinese
Nationalists to fight, Consul Leung stressed, and he also counted
on the strong hope of the people
of the Mainland to aee them
"We expect the soldiers of the
red armies to come over to us in
great numbers," he said, "and
our expectations must be seen
in the light of the 80% of the
Chinese prisoners of war in Korea who refuted to return to their
communist masters."

Close Games Predicted When
Birds Meet Central And CPS
Heacox And Medin Big
Threats To Two Wins
If any enterprising student has been making book on Bird's
basketball games he'd better shut down for this weekend's
games. Tonight Birds host Central Washington and tomorrow
night College of Puget Sound Loggers will be the visitors and
it is..almost a certainty that both games will be won or lost by
not more than three points.
A look at   the league stand-* ——— -
ings would seem to indicate
that Birds will get clobbered in
both games but the standings do
not tell the whole story.
Birds have lost six Conference tilts this year but three of
them have been by three points
or less and their previous game
with Central was one of those
three losses.
In their first meeting with
CPS this year Birds were beaten by seven points buti the Loggers were almost unbelievably
accurate that evening as they
sank 57 percent of their shots.
That brings the picture up to
this wekend and with Birds playing on their home court it may
be their turn to win a couple
of games by a narrow margin,
instead of losing a couple of
games by Just as narrow a margin.
♦ Central's big surprise comes
,'ln a little package — five feet

star of the Wildcats quintette
and along with guard Bill Baser he can spell a lot of trouble

been cooled off by Eastern and

Upson will stop looking at the
ball and start shooting it and
if Bone can get at least eight
points in both games they may
at least sweep a weekend series.

Moderns series for the Senior
"A" League championship

Soccer XI
Royal Oaks
Soccer action resumes after
a four week lay-off with the
Birds playing Royal Oaks at
2 p.m. Sunday in the Stadium.
The game shapes up as a battle for fourth place in the "B"
Division with both clubs currently tied for that spot.
In their two other encounters
with Royal Oaks this season
Birds could manage only a pair
of draws. They have had difficulty in solving Royal Oak defense this year and consequently looked woefully weak against

The UBC Chiefs will also play
on the campus when they host
Forums at 2 p.m. Sunday in a
Third Division league game.
Due to the cancellations caused by the weather the Chiefs
formerly good chance of copping the league crown is now
reduced   to   an   outside  chance.
Although Forums have shown
some improvement in recent
outings, they don't figure to
give Chiefs much of a battle this
The Chiefs have already handed Forums a 6-1 trouncing this
season, and Sunday's game
should result in another lopsided score.

For McKechnie Cup
For the seventh time in nine years the UBC Thunderbirds
rugby fifteen will stage a defence of the prized McKechnie
