Thc play may really be said to

The play was translated and ad-

Stories carried by Vancouver
newspapers last week-end of "wild
drinking parties until after 3 a.m.'
at. Acadia Camp after the last camp
danco were labelled false by Acadia
Council  members.
Council officials said last week
that stories of such parties and
other rumours of damage and violations of regulations barring members of lhe opposite sex from men's
and women's residences were false
or vastly exaggerated.
Ucporls of promiscuity In residences are grossly oversensation
al, said Ciinliffe. He pointed oui
that conditions afford so little privacy Ihat violation of regulations
governing this arc practically impossible.
IV. X. A. M. MacKenzie. who met
with Aciidia residents and Council Jasl week said rumours that he
threatened closure of Acadia Camp
were ridiculous. He said that the
meet ing was merely the kind of
conference called throughout the
year to discuss camp management.
DISTRIBUTION  OF  MONEY
UBC branch of the Legion will
put up $7,4!)1 to complete the coffee bar. Finishing the room will
cost $n,5SI and heating, ventilating and lighting fixtures will make
up the remainder of the cost.
Coffee bar will begin operation
this month when the War Memorial Oym Is unofficially opened.
Debt incurred by the Legion will
be paid off after five years of operation, officials said.
PROFITS    FOR    SCHOLARSHIPS
After repayment of the loan, any

How Dull Can You Get?
Three young men who are asking for
your votes tomorrow in the AMS presidential
elections should get some mention on this
page for having conducted the most singularly
dull set of campaigns in UBC history.
Last year at eelction time, we found that
Joe College was back. And we thought he
was here to stay. But evidently we were
wrong.
It was during last year's campaigns that
one candidate tagged himself "Fireball" and
lived up to the reputation until the last vote
had been counted. All in all, it was a colorful race, replete with bag-pipes, apple cider,
and plenty.of the brass band type of razzle-
dazzle which could keep our former acquaintance, Student Lethargy, safely in hi: grave.
Those were the days that make the past
week look pretty sick.
Intent on conducting what they like to
call "a clean, serious, down-to-farth campaign," our three aspiring presidents have
gone after the votes as if they were seeking
the presidency of the National Morticians
Association,
Each of them has had just about enough
imagination to observe publicly that tbe
War Memorial Gymnasium is a fino project
that ought to be supported in one way or
another.
The rest of what they all said during
their platform speeches Monday could easily
have been lifted from recordings of past years'
campaigns.
In fact we are quite tired of being told
that every candidate seeking an AMS post
is honest, capable, experienced, popular, energetic, ambitious, sincere, hard-working, and,
in short, in possession of every other virtue
expressible in public.
Or, more correctly, every virtue but one.
That one is imagination. If any of them had
imagination, he would have turned the current campaign into a rip-roaring, beer-and-
pretzels type of fight.
We understand ,what with alcohol at its
present price, that candidates' budgets might
cut them down to the pretzels alone.
That problem is essentially the same
type of poser that AMS councillors face after
they get into office.
A man who can run a smart campaign
stands a good chance of running a smart administration.

Oh Pshaw!
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Your edition of last Friday contains some quite false conclusions
drawn.from remarks made by myself. In the first place, the grant
of. the Arts Undergraduate Society has been restored only insofar as it will be possible for the
ACS to draw funds for such Arts
functions as are approved by tho
Co-ordlnator and myself.
Mr. Midwinter and 1 met subsequently to decide that the remain-'
ing two free dances, of which that
on   Jan.   27   was   tho   forerunner,
should not take place.
The fact that Arts is left with
nothing but their Ball is not, I
believe, a display of over-generosity and "soft-heartednesB," especially in view of the fact that,,,S0
per cent of any profits from the
Arts Ball are to go to the War Memorial Gymnasium Fund, as agreed
between AUS president Bill Neen
and WMGF chairman Bill Haggart.
In your article on the need for
musicians to play for the Mussoc
voting ought to be a dull tossup among all
three.
As I See It
If the production of "As You Like It,"
lately in our midst, is any indication, it ir
quite safe to say that the so-called "star"
system in the theatre was never'farther from
extinction. Here is "As You Like It;" of
Hepburn, for Hepburn, and, well, not by
Hepburn, but somehow I don't think it was
quite what Shakespeare had in mind either.
The producer's point of view k all too
evident in this offering of the Theatre Guild.
One can almost hear the thought processes,
"Well, Shakespeare is bad box-office, but if
we give it a glamourized production with
overwhelming sets and costumes and use a
big personality star we might have a sell-out.
And they did have a sell-out. Everyone went
to see Hepburn, and the Hepburn personality
is worth seeing anytime, but the theatre, supposedly, is something more than a show caso
for personalities.
Gorgeous as the twangy drawl used in
movies like "Adam's Rib" and the "Philadel-
By Joan Basted
phia Story" may be, it appeared mere than
slightly incongruous when applied to Rosalind.
The play pretends to be nothing more,
than a pastoral fantasy sharpened by bits of
Shakespearian wit, and alleviated by farcical
comedy. Over all there is an atmosphere of
merry  England.  Not  in the Theatre  Guild
production  however,  which  obviously  took
phicc*  in some marvelleous American  fairy
tale. Thc Wizard of Oz might have walked | But happily such will not happen.

ISS Student Seminar
By  Felicity
Wining, dining and dancing seem so far
to have been dominant in reports on the
seminar. This gives a false picture. During
those five weeks most of us took our responsibilities pretty seriously. We realized it
was a unique chance to discover the truth oa
the things that we only hear second hand. We
found that many of the things we had been
led to believe were false—as far as students
were concerned, at any rate.
Most of us over here, if we arc qualified
and know what we want to do, can pet a job
which will give us a decent living. The average girl has a chance to get married and
raise a family. This is not so in Europe. Even
the most brilliant student has little hope of
employment which will provide him with
more than the bare necessities, and the majority face unemployment, for thorn is still
a social taboo against their doing unskilled
tabor. Girls so far exceed boys in number ?*t
the present time that most of them cannot
look forward to a normal life. It is little wonder, then, that we were struck by the complete lack of hope on the part of the European
students; they seemed, many of them, to be
paralysed by despair, They felt, thai they
were living just to provide the cannon fodder
for the next war and that it would be better
to let the race die out than raise familit*.
This seems like a pose to us, but when you
Technically it was a superb exhibit of
enchanting   costumes,   delightful   sets   and
artistic lighting, but please let us come away
from the theatre with something more than i  twilight kingdom: and the equally;
sense   of   having   seen   something   terribly j wonderful watercolors or Chinese:
pretty ! ritual   vessels.   These   latter  glow !
J1 '   j like  the   rich   patina  on   their   an-,
dent    bronze    counterparts.     Oh
well!   [ shall just look sadly  Into I
this   spirit   land   and   Ions   to  es-'
capo the poisonous atmosphere ni
radio and press that fills our lives.
Toby and Callaluins arc, for me,
less interesting. Callahan seems
to be a belated brother of Gustavo I
Oore who decided to re-engrave j
Dante's "Inferno." Some of the |
Tobys are quite lovely, however, j
and very beautiful. Other interest-1
Ing paintings by Toby are "Indian i
Country"  and  "Testament." \
But Graves ! I
think in terms of what they lwe been
through and what they have to live for and
if you hear them speak you would roali/o
the terrible sincerity of what they say.
This attitude was perhaps highlighted
by the predominance of philosophy and religion as topics of discussion. Most of the
Canadians were concerned with philosophy
only as an academic subject, their lives had
been too simple to need it in any other way—
not so in Europe. Their attitude to religion
wa.s often shallow and insincere. I would say
that thirty out of the forty Canadians were
practicing Christians. The only practicing
Christians among the Europeans were ihe
Catholics, two Lutheran theology students,
and a Lutheran girl. The rest were agnostic".
bn! they were bolter agnostics than we were
Christians, that is, their position had stood
lhe lesl of better experience and deep and
serious thought. In view of this fact it is
peiliaps interesting that it was general'y
•■greed at the end of the Seminar that th?
root of thc crisis today lies in our lack
of religion. We are sheltering under a false
cloak. Our whole civilzation is founded on
Greek philosophy and Christian religion, we
are the heirs of Greece and Rome, but the
majority of us do not know what that implies.
i1 is a poor heir who does not know his own
inheritance.

case. 1 am simply trying to hel|>
the Mussoc executive in their yearly search for student musicians

I hope this will clarify these two
issues.

Would-Be  Presidents Stand Up
To Questions From Few Students
the UBC Liberal Club "has always put a candidate up for
the AMS presidency" a law student told a sparsley-attended
student gathering who came to hear would be presidents state
their platforms Friday.
Ho stated timt to»his knowlediso
such a move had never been carried ont by the club. "I have no
intention of carrying party politics Into the student council offices," Lyon said.
"I resigned as president of the
Liberal Club because 1 did not
want students voting lor the president ol the Liberal Club." he said.
Previous to the question period
the three candidates, Ivan Feltham, Vaughn Lyon and Al Westcott outlined their platforms to
students in five minute speeches.
Ivan Feltham, junior member on
council this year advocated a more
representative student council
"based on the needs of the unlver
Blty."
ADVOCATES CHECKING
He 'proposed the establishment
ot checking accounts for undergraduate societies to eliminate
petty cash disbursements and give
the groups more control of their
finances.
He warned that these accounts
would be tor petty cash only and
not for' large expenses which
would have to meet with the approval of the business manager
and the AMS treasurer.
Legion president Al Westcott
pledged himself to continue the all-
out effort to complete the gym
through "renewed vigorous application to government sources" for
additional funds.

SPORTS NOTEBOOK
By AUSTIN DELANY
(The possibility of teelgation between the Pacific Coast
Soccer League and the Vancouver and District League concerns this university, in as much that UBC's first division
V&D entry may receive an offer to move into the "select
company." In view of the importance of this the Ubyssey
has asked Austin Delany, probable the top soccer writer in
Canada, to give his opinion on the subject. Mr. Delany, who
is now an active writer with the Vancouver Sun, played
soccer from 1927 to 34 with the famous dominion champions
New Westminster Royals. Those were the days when one
bad to possess first class ability to make a team. Therefore
I feel there is no other man more suited to Write the article
than he.—Ed,.)
But The Old  Boys ...
THERE has been much talk of" lately among B.C. soccer loaders
here on the advisability of inviting a Varsity eleven ifto the
strangest senior soccer league ln Canada: the Pacific Coast League.
The person responsble for throwing Varsity's hat Into this elite ring is
none other than an old alumnus. Dave Todd, whose surname hag heen
synonymous with the game in the University for years.
Whether or not the tight little Coast League group accents a
Varsity entry (and I doubt they will) is beside the point but it is
interesting to know that one of the Todd family is as loyal as ever
to the game and to the University, and anxious to raise the game
to a major status on the campus.
ln giving Todd a hearing on the matter members of th*** Coast
League were not entirely unselfish. They are not unaware, for instance, that the University has one of the most perfect playing areas
In Canada and stands capable of handling a fair crowd. With temporary bleachers seats at each end a much larger crowd could be
accommodated,
Varsity No Wonder Team
emmmmm*mpmm-mmmmwm-~mm--wamm-m--—m-mmm-mmm-m
THI8, of course, was emphasised by Dave when he made, his original plea, and more. He pointed out quite clearly that much
was to be gained for soccer if it regained a major status at the University with block letters and other paraphernalia that goes with the
sports elite out there.
Graduates who take up teaching as a profession, and who happened
to be interested in soccer, would be In a preferred.position to spread
the gospel of the game. At present lt Is recognised quite frankly that
few teachers in public and high schools know anything about the
game, Us laws, and methods of coaching.
Furthermore, Todd piaintalned, when players of the University
team graduated they would in the main be excellent material for
other teams in the league.
That, ln short was Todd's case. As a member of the Coast League
executive he knows, of course that there are many Vancouver and
District League teams better than the present Varsity team, but these
teams have not the financial backing and potential support a good
Varsity team would have If accepted into the Coast League.
Collingwood, South Hill, and now Fireman all want berths |n the
Coast loop but it is the same old story. It would mean that more teams
would be cluttering up Callister Park, as they do .even now, and extra
teams without an enclosed park of their own would be forced to sit
out weeks at a time waiting a turn.
Would  Benefit  Soccer
IF THE League is enlarged, and some claim lt must enlarge or go
to seed, then Varsity with a perfect ground and an organization
unmatched behind them are in a preferred position.
Unfortunately their present teum is a puny thing nt best and
with the possible exception of Bobby Moulds most of the players
could not get jobs as ball boys at Callister.
How Todd proposes lo improve the team is something hn hasn't
enlarged upon. He merely raises his eyes in surprise, and mutters,
"Oh tilings will improve." The answer to that, I guses, Is that of
course they will. They couldn't possibly be worse than the are.
Only last week (about 30 years late) the Dominion Football
Association promotional committee decided to set up a coaching
si hool for soccer coaches here. If school teachers respond to the call,
as it is expected they will, then in a few years time more and better
players should be available to University elevens,
team, as it Is laughingly called, and they have winced out loud at
what they saw.
Mr.  Delany  Has The  Floor
MEANWHILE members of the Coast League have been taking
every opportunity of giving the once over lightly to the Varsity
What they saw was a long long way from the Varsity team of the
twenties that won several senior trophies and was one of the best
drawing cards at Con Jones Park (now Callister).
Those were the days of Moggie Mosher, Kb Crutee, Lorrie Baker.
Key. Cameron, Ron Phillips, Jock Lundie. et al.
Todd hopes the University teams of the future will be as successful as that famous eleven. Without, players--und unless he can pull a
Walt Disney and pull them out of the air—his dream is doomed to
remain in a self created cloud of his own hopefulness.
