Bellingham Blitz
Thunderbirds travtl to Bellingham to play Western
Washington Friday night and it is expected that a number of
students will also visit the "Invasiion City."
With a view to the disturbances caused by UBC students in the last football game at Bellingham, officials from
both schools have taken proper precautions to see that such a
thing won't happen again.
The manager of the perenially-attractive hotel in Bellingham has been advised not to rent rooms to students.
There will be disciplinary-officers from Western Washington at the game in the gym watching for UBC troublemakers.
Students are warned now that the book will be thrown
at any student who causes a disturbance in Bellingham Friday night. There will be no leniency shown by discipline
committees from either school toward any student who is
rowdy at the game.
Student Council made it clear that a few trouble-
making students will not again cast reflection upon the reputation of the whole university.
The Lions Will Roar...
One of the best examples of careless thinking shown in
a long time was demonstrated at the Mardi Gras last
week when a banner boosting the Lions was very prominent among the decorations. Several students wearing
Lion uniforms also did some very smart advertising for the
pro club.
A professional organization which will certainly cut
into UBC's attendance at football games next fall received
free publicity at a university function. And yet nowhere
was there a mention made of any Thunderbird team.
Every year there is much lamenting on the campus because of the comparitively poor quality of our athletic
Whoever was responsible for letting the pro outfit
obtain free advertising at a university function such as the
Mardi Gras should think twice the next time some criticism is levelled at university teams, and consider the fact
that the attitude of the students sometimes has as much
influence on the caliber of the teams as has the athletic
God" Is Unique
The English Department's annual experimental play,
"The Great God Brown" will be on display tonight, Friday
and Saturday on the campus.
We think this presentation is unique. Students are offered, for nothing, top entertainment by the leading theatre
artists on the campus, supplemented by alumni. The play
is labelled "experimental" and it is actually that — an experiment, something different from the ordinary, run-of-
the-stage production.
This is the only known university in Canada which
directly subsidizes a production of this type. The administration feels that the money is well spent if students, faculty
and the theatre public of Vancouver have the opportunity
to witness a play that is "different."
The English department set a high standard two years
ago with "The Ascent of F6" and followed it up last year
with the Greek plays.
We hope that 'The Great God Brown" maintains this
high standard and that enough students attend the three
performances to warrant continuation of this unique project.
Mr. Young's statement about
communisnVand socialism confuses me. He means that socialist CCF and communist LPP
are the same thing. Up to now
I thought they were different.
In a socialist country communists can exist, as was the
case in Great Britian, when
Labor Party ruled the country
a few years ago. But in communist countries socialism is
outlawed. USSR (Soviet Russia),
the Mecca of communism, did
away with all socialist leaders
and Lenin ordered all of them
* to be liquidated. The petitions
and protests from all over the
world did not save their lives.
Even in "national" communist Yugoslavia the socialist party
was rooted out as early as 1946
and its leader, Dr. Topalovich,
lawyer, had to flee the country
and today lives in exile in
France. Many of his friends are
still today in prison camps. In
Czeckoslovakia, after the communist party took over the
country by the coup d'etat and
with the help of the Soviet
Army, they murdered Western-,
minded Massaryk and "butchered" many socialist leaders.
One of them fortunately escaped to this country and today
is a professor at UBC. In all
red countries ruled by McCarthy's "friends" the story was
the same: Peasants, socialists
and useful fools were used to
establish "proletarian" dictatorship and as soon as they
served their purpose they were
Huidated in the same manner-
as "bloody" capitalists, middle-
class people, "Kulaks" and
"bourgeois" fellows.
On the other hand »Mr.
Young, stated the truth: "Communists in this country represent the most ignorant and
backward sections of the working class . . . without prin
ciples and roots . . . mentally
sick . .". This is the truth with
any other communists in the
world criminal aots of mass
massacre of the people committed in "Kathyn" Forest,
Yalu, Peiking, Siberia labour
camps can not be justified even
by "Christian" Mr Endicott of
A Yugoslav Socialist
Who's Un-Canadian ?
I am disgusted with Johann
Stoyva and his guest editorial,
"Are Frats Un - Canadian?"
which appeared in Tuesday's
edition of the Ubyssey.
Apart from the numerous
low insinuations which reveal
a prejudice amazing in a student majoring in psj^hology,
I take exception to a few very
important omissions which Mr.
Stoyva made:
When proposing an investigation into whether fraternities
are "Un-Canadian", an investigation touching many people
and dealing with their civil
liberties, Mr. Stoya might have
at least taken the trouble to
define "Canadian", so that we
might judge what is "Un-Canadian".
Having established his criteria, he might then have shown
us why the fact that a group
is "Un-Canadian" is justification for an investigation into
its existence and behaviour.
In short,  he  might  have     ex
plained, if he could, what is
wrong with being "Un-Canadian."
Re might also have told us
specifically who is to undertake the investigation, and under what authority they are
competent to investigate.
I suggest that Mr. Stoyva compare his mjsterpiece of prejudice and illogicalness with an
editorial from the Chicago Tribune or with a speech by Senator McCarthy, and having
done so, that he do some soul-
searching instead of witch-

hoots in hell
By Peter Sypnowich
A Harvard professor named
Sorokin is going around saying that we are becoming sex-
crazy. We are growing morally lax, he says. But before
your face lights up in pleased
approval, you should realize
he thinks this is "tragic".
His words cannot be dismissed as merely the sullen sniping of a man with bad breath.
It is men like Sorokin who uie
are replacing the Saturday
night stag with League of Decency meetings. Sorokin is
only one of thousands who
wish to lock sex in the bedroom, who are opening a campaign against the greatest
achievement of the 20th century — the emancipation of
Back in the twenties, far-
seeing individuals took sex
out of the back alleys and barrooms and brought it into the
ladies' magazines where it
could be enjoyed by all.
People immediately took to
sitting in earnest little groups,
discussing life, and how to prevent it but sex has been improved ten-fold since then —
you need only to look around
you to see what the sex-suppressors would take away
from us.
Sex has brought us Marilyn
Monroe and the beauty contest. It has made life interest
ing. Hormones can provide a
happy life for the old folks,
and even the ads are worth
reading — what will be the
next dream of the Maiden-
form girl, the future inuen-
does of the Springmaid ad
or the next reason why? Now
men are not regarded as lewd
if they cannot look a girl in
the eye, and middle-aged ladies have found a new pleasure by crossing their legs before young men in streetcars.
Sex has given us a popular
culture. Television for example,    developed    simultan
eously with the 38-inch bust—
without cleavage and Dagnur,
TV would have been doomed
in its early stages.
Sex has also skyrocketed
our reading habits. Novelists
would be ignored were it
not for cover illustrators.
People often scan the political
articles after reading "Is marriage necessary for sexual happiness?" in the women's magazines, and "Are you depraved?" in the men's magazines.
Education is a popular institution now that students
learning how to add and spell
correctly are also told how to
live effectively. The cost of
books on sex instruction are
at last within the reach of
everyone, and the plain wrapper will soon be gone.
The emmancipation of sex
has done the most for us socially. Funny jokes can be told
in mixed company. Sex has
given us something to talk
about — now everyone can be
a brilliant conversationalist.
Socially inept girls may enter the sorority of their choice,
merely by announcing with
blase assurance that they believe in free love.
But   the   fact   that   the   Bikini    bathing    suit    did    not
. achieve  instant  popularity  is
an   indication  that   men  like
Sorokin are receiving an  increased following. Further evidence  can   be  found   in   this
week's Life magazine,  which
carries a picture of Jane Russell obviously just itching  to
be  led   into  the  master   bedroom.    But, Life tells us, Miss
Russell   does   not   approve   of
the   picture,   and   quotes   her
as saying, " I don't like the ac- '
cent on sex and never have."
Arc  we  to  lose  the   nylon
blouse and the historic novel?
Sex   is  our   most   prized   possession — we've got to dig in
and  fight  the  Sorokins   with
every   available   Kinsey   Report.
We can't be left with sailing ships and puppy dogs on
our calendars. II, 1M4

Famous For Friendliness

"Famous for friendliness" is the motto of Phrateres, one
of the largest women's organizations-on the campus, whose
membership is open to any interested co-ed.

Canadian, Theta chapter at
UBC. This chapter was first
organized in 1935 by the late
Dean Mary Bollert.
The 160 members of Phrateres have a hectic activities program. In October the new
members, most of whom are
first-year students, receive their
pledge pins at an impressive
Pledges are divided into seven
sub-chapters, each with its own
executives and its own activities.
If the pledge has done her
share in the group activities,
she is initialed at a formal
candlelight ceremony in Brock
Hall. This year 116 girls will
pledge their devotion to the
ideals of the University and
"to   the   best   in   womanhood."
At the end of exams Phrateres
girls hie off to Camp Fircom on
Gambler Island for a week of
fun and relaxation. The next

The new pledges are kept
busy with pot-luck suppers,
card parties or coke parties.
They must take part in the subchapter service project, which
may be reading for the blind,
collecting magazines for sailors, j
or entertaining children. A cup
is awarded to the most active
sub-chapter of the year.
Biggest events of the year are
the two formals, held in November and February. At the spring
formal—on February 12 this
year—the Phrateres Sweetheart
is chosen from candidates chosen
by the seven sub-chapters.
,A11-Phrateres also have a social
evening service project every
year. This year the girls are
holding a Diaper Derby for the
Red Cross. Last year they rolled thousands of bandages. In
addition, proceeds from the two
formals and from other activities go to ascholarship fund
which provides a  $100 scholar-
nual  Camp  Reunion  Night.
Dean Dorothy Mawdsley is
Honorary President of Phrateres, and, according to President Joy Mounce, her help and
advice has been an important
factor in the success of Phrateres at UBC.

the development of dixie jazs
from cotton field chants such as
"When The Saints Come Marching In",to newer dixie land exercises like "Mississippi Mud."
Leader Ren Williams' tasteful piano and the warm sax of

St. John intends to prevent a recurrence of the Bellingham Invasion at this Friday's basketball game in that city.
St. John will send warning
letters to both the manager of the
Leopold Hotel and the Athletic
Director of Western
Washington College of Education, in preparation for the game
between UBC and Western Washington Vikings.
The hotel manager will be advised not to allow UBC students
without luggage to register in
his hotel, and the athletic director will be offered cooperation
in keeping "disorderly" students
out of the basketball game.
The moves, part of St. John's
"Preventing Publicity" plan,
were approved by Student Council Monday night.

Results of the poll should
be in by next week, Mike Nuttall, chairman of the special

Nuttall said soon as the
complete results are in, the'
committee will take "immediate action" on them.
He     said     "semi-classical,"
and "dinner music" are so far
the popular choices of those
who have answered the poll.
Reason for the poll was because it was felt a possible
reason why Brock lounge was
not being used to its capacity

UBC's Georgie Puil was injured playing in last Saturday's
rugby game for the London
Irish. Puil suffered a torn ligament in his left ankle and will
be lost to the Irish for at least
two weeks and possibly a month.
Puil -picked up a loose ball
during the first half and started
down field. Near the sideline
he ran into a hard tackle and
fell with his leg pinned under
him. It was feared that his leg
was broken.

Athletic Set-up Explained
By Allan   Goldsmith
Three quarters of the st-
dents probably don't know
what the initials mean. Ninety percent probably don't
know what it docs. And ninety-five percent couldn't tell
you who the y are.
Shrouded in mystery, the
august body controlling
$16,000 of student money
s the Men's Athletic Committee or MAC for short.
Set up four years ago under
Iho Ostrom Plan, the nine man
/board prepares the rKhletic
budget, decides athletic policy
end administers the eligibility
i nles. It is they who tell the
clinches how  many  players  to
take on a trip. It is they who
decide who and what our
teams play against.
The Board consists of four
students, three representatives
of the Council of the school of
Physical Education, a representative of the senate, a representative of the Alumni Association and a secretary.
* * *
The four students arc
chosen by the Student Council, but by tradition are always
thc President, the Treasurer,
and the President and Secretary of MAD. Ivan Feltham,
Allan Goldsmith. Peter Lusztig and BiU Hutchinson are
this year's quartet .
The  Council   of   the  school
has appointed Messrs. Bob Osborne, Harry Warren and Wilf
Helslop. The Senate representative is Dean A. W. Mathews.
The non-voting secretary is
Athletic Co-ordinator Bus Phillips. Representing the Alumni
Association is Grant Donegen-
if. if*. if*.
In order to keep the balance
of power with thc students
the MAC agrees that one of
the faculty members shall be
thc chairman, Dean Mathews
kindly consented to take the
hot spot of University and
student  administration.
The senate representative is
new this year. It resulted from
that  now  famous  controversy
over eligibility last season
with the Senate. After t h e
smoke had died down it was
thought best by all concerned
that the Senate should have
a voice on the MAC. Whereupon the vote was taken from
thc Athletic Director and given to the Senate rep. However
it was lost again when Dean
Mathews became chairman.
Dean Mathews comes from
hinterlands far beyond the
rockies where he was at one
time president of the Canadian Rugby Union. This ardent fan of Canadian Football
has become one of the most
respected voices on Athletics
in the University.
This vear the MAC has been
confronted with interpreting
the new eligibility rules. Thc
rules have proved quite ambiguous- in quite a number of
cases, and the committee has
been trying a number of different interpretations in order to
work out some proposed ann-
*T* *T* ^r
The student members have
also prepared some suggested
changes in the rules, but until
more experience has been obtained with the present interpretations, and until thc Committee sees how the University's proposed scheme of counselling the less successful students works no definite
chantjes will be made.
