Commerce  Students Saved  Year
With Introduction Of New Option
UBC commerce students now have the opportunity to train
for commercial high-chool teaching while studying for their
Baichelor of Commerce degree.
The Senate and the Board of
GoVernors have approved an option
In'the School of Commerce to provide a course on Commerce and
Teaching.
The option will allow students to
complete the requirements for an
Academic A Teaching Certificate
while still undergraduates.
Victoria Department of Educa
tion will provide special facilties
during third and fourth years to
teach students shorthand, typing
and secretarial practice.
"The number ot qualified Instructors ln the commercial teaching
field Is limited at present," a commerce official said," and it is hoped
that this option will attract young
men aud women to this field.
Students may take a major in
Science, English, Social Studies-*,
Mathematit:s) or Modern Languages
with their commercial courses.
"Tl\is arrangement saves the
student a year of graduate work in
Education," said the official.
Students in first, or second year

apply to the director of the Com
mercy School.

Salaries Index  Is Still Below
That For Industrial Workers
U,BC professors received the largest salary increase in uni-f-
versity history with the announcement Tuesday, of a $200,000
grant from provincial government, but their wages will still be
below cost of living levels.       *
Anouncement of a $200,000 salary grant was made In the legislature Tuesday by Education Minister W. T. Btralth.
The minister did not mention
the administration request for an
additional »300,00p grant to keep
present services and programs going.
Tha exact per capita Increase resulting from the salafy grant has
not yet been determined, but members of the Fciilty Aaoclatlons are
discussing the,question with President H. A. M. MahKentle before
making recommendations to the
board. '     ^
President MacKensle, commenting on the co-operation ot the Provincial Governm%at, said the need
tor increases was very great. Oen-
^erai ^railffcatlen for the Increase
was oJ-Jpresjed by faculty members.
Professors had previously asked
tor a $300,000 grant which would
give each professor an average of
$1000 more a year. The present
Increase could boost each professor's salary $725 per ycar, bringing
their wages almost up to the Index
level of the lowest paid Industrial
workers In the B.C. wage Index.
With the salary hike, professors
index figure will rise to 146 from
the present 126., taking 1939 as
100; Average industrial wage index
in 1950 was 1-84, while present index is estimated at 190. Cost of
living index was 175 at last report.
The $200,000 Increase made by
the government Tuesday was explained by Mr. Straith as a contingent grant. If an expected Federal Government grant equals or
exceeds that sum, then the provincial offer will not apply.
The salary boosts followed a petition by the Faculty Association
and direct requests to Victoria by
the Board  ot Governors.

Explanations, Songs, Jokes,

THEY DIDN'T
COME ACROSS
To whom It may concern:
The rustlers did not make
the boarder. It is hoped that
this relieves the students'
minds and now they may re-
turn  to  their studies.
By  ERMA  POSTER
Over 1000 students heard Albert
Lailhwalte's explanatlns, Slim Aliens jokes and Eleanor's melodious songs at the Kickapoo's pep*
meet In the Armories Tuesday
noon,
John .MacKinulu, AMS treasur
cr, was made "Big Chief Bust" and
awarded a "replica of iiis desires"
in appreciation of his "extreme
matt" this past year, by the Incllan-
named pen club.
"MacKinnon accepted his gift
cheerfully and was seen fondling
it. with affection," said a member
ot Kickapoos.
The gift, a  bust of a well-form
ed woman is now on display at the
*
AMS office and may bee seen for
ono cent. Proceeds wil be used by
MacKinnon in an effort to balance
AMiS finances.
Albert Laithwaite, coach of the
Thunderbird Rugby team, explained that Max! Howell of Australia
and Bill Salnas from UBC, stars ot
the California team, were making
it difficult for the locals, but he
promised that If the students would
give the team adequate support
at the game, these two "would be
taken care of."
Referring to the size of the opposition: "At California everyone
is huge." In any case Laithwaite
"guarantees  a good  game  in  the
'toilet bowl'."
Slim Allen entertained a rcce*
tive audience with "stories taken
from every day life," and the contralto voice of Eleanor thrilled the
crowd with the beautiful "Gone
With the Wind" and "Can't Help
l^ovln' that Man." She also sang
the moving Negro sivirtual "Nobody Knows the Trouble I See"
for a second encore.
Twelve cases or candy will be
thrown to the fans, the Kickapoos
announced.
Kickapoos termed this their most
successful Pep-meet of the year and
promised bigger and better ones
to students next year.

"Well, It's A Start Anyway
n
The provincial government's $200,000
grant to boost professors' salaries is a move
in the right direction.
To the hard-pressed professor it means
another $700 or so a year. The increase is
not overly generous, but it certainly evidence
of the government's good faith,
It will not enable any professor to live
in luxury and it leaves our salaries considerably below those of most American institutions—even in real purchasing power — and
somewhat below those of the University of
Toronto.
Whether or not the increase will be sufficient to keep our best teachers here remains
to be seen. Perhaps if the government were
to. make qjear that the present boost was an
interim stop-gap and promised further increases next year which would at least keeji
up with the sky-rocketing cost of living, it
Would sound more convincing,
Fortunately, the high degree of academic
freedom at UBC is one very convincing reason why teachers would do well to remain
here in this day of loyalty oaths and intimidation. If UBC continues to be an expanding
university and shows promise of earning a
spot for itself among the top schools of the
continent, the combination of circumstances
may convince some of those who are seriously considering accepting more lucrative positions that in the long run, they will lose
nothing by staying.
But this raises another problem which the
legislators saw fit to ignore.
President MacKenzie has intimated that
the university may be forced to curtail many
of its services—particularly those to the outside community—unless some way out of
the cycle of rising costs and falling enrollment is found.
No extra appropriation to the general
fund other than a small one* to fill the ever
hungry mouth of the new medical school has
been made.
We wonder what measures are likely to
be taken.
What is likely to happen if extension
services are slashed?
Are the people of B.C. more likely to
stand behind us if they know even less about
what we are doing?
There are rumours, too, that some of the
tiny and inadequate departments in the
humanities are due to be clipped even further.
Nonie Showed Em How
W» don't think we'll get any letters of
disagreement if we sound off on how we've
felt about having a woman as president of
the Alma Mater Society during the past year.
Now that Nonie Donaldson has turned
her gown of office over to Vaughan Lyon,
we can't help remarking on her record during what could have been one of the most
disastrous eras in AMS history.
There were many among us who gasped
with dismay when they first heard last fall
that our student government was to be led
by a "mere woman."
Many were inclined to draw a parallel
between her situation and that of President
Truman, inasmuch as both of them took office
as a result of the loss of a more renowned
chief. "*.*
Today, Mr. Truman would consider him
self fortunate if he could achieve half the
success with which Nonie has finished her
term.
At the risk of making unfair generalizations about womanhood, we must say we
noticed a somewhat predictable caution that
seem* tb be manifest1 in' the female of the
Species, whether she's betting a penny in a
poker game or investing a million in a gym.
Council! all the while has been, in fact, in-
furiatingly cautious upon occasion, and part
oi that attitude may ceratinly be traced back
to Miss Donaldson. \
But, in spite of the constant watch we've
kept on the president and her council, we
must confess we can't find any bad faults.
Caution, deplorable though it was at times,
didn't prevent Nonie from getting things
done.
On the host of committees of which the
president is expected to be a member, Nonie
served with loyalty, sincerity and capability.
As council chairman, she weaved her way
deftly around the hundred and one snags
which can catch anyone who is trying to work
within the Parliamentarian system.
But what we liked most about Nonie was
that on no occasion did she allow herself to be
bamboozled by pressure grups who would
have had Council serving their own particular, selfish purposes.
Everyone got a fair hearing, and few, it
rny, ever got more or less than they deserved
from the Donaldson administration.
That's why we say, without reservations:
Thanks, Nonie, for a grand job!

The inscription conies from God's

Lamentations, Ch. I verse 12. Directly, it expresses the misery of
sinful Israel under God's punishment; prophetically, it describes
the sufferings of the sinless King,

thanksgiving is the meaning offered to each or us in Good Friday;
the key to life, to true and eternal
and blessed life with the Internal
God who created us, free and able
to love Him if we so choose. Is
thut nothing to you?
Moat    who   bother   to   consider
Him,   acknowledge   that   Jesus   of
N'azaretli was at least tlie greatest
man   who  ever  lived.  The  highest
values of our culture,   His  revelation of God's love and  truth, and
respect for human personality and j
the  hope  of u   better destiny  still
surround   us   and   lift   up _and   enlighten an otherwise confusing and

their sins, and especially their
pride, to the Love, Mfe und Holiness of God. He warned of the
terrible consequences of such preference, but to "as many as received him, to them gave the
power to become the children of
God, even to them that believed on
his    name."
On Faster morning God set His
seal on the claims, statements, and
promises of Jesus, by the historical
fact of His resurrection, attested
to by "over four hundred" people
to whom He revealed Himself, and
attested to in the miraculous preservation of His Book and His
Church, human history and those
who have experience gift of Life

Editor, The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I don't fancy the Idea of being
deaf but I should be grateful If
somebody would Invent an anti-
hearing aid for use in the UBC
library.
The alternative of anti-hearing
aids ls quite out of the question,
One simply couldn't suggest that
students be quiet In the library, for
students must talk somewhere.
There Is no beer parlor on the
campus and as far as talki^r In
the cafeteria, well, yet, lt has some
merit, but what's the fun of sitting
In the cafeteria jabbering between
meal hours when there are no
wretched diners* leaking for places
ot which to eat?
As for talking ln the open air
again that ls out of the question,
for one might get sunstroke, or ge*
wet from some parsing clond, or
get a sore throat from the chilly
winds.
Of course, one can always chatter ln one's lectures, but then one
doesn't have lectures all the time,
does one?
And talk shouldn't he allowed
ln the Brock because of the sleepers. Besides, the snoring Isn't conducive to the best talk.
The only place on the whole
wide campus to talk in ls the library. That's why we need antl-
hearlng aids.
Antl-seelng aids and anti-smell-
Ing aide, too. No smoking, applying
lipstick, combing one's hair, scent
and the smell of face powder and
hair oil doesn't seem to hinder
the grasping of T. S. Eliot's poetry
or Kant's philosophy.
But talk!

Kditor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
After some deliberation on the
matter of UHC dances, I have decided to offer a feyv suggestion!'.
First, if anyone Is unaware that
these functions are to be endured
rather than enjoyed (which I
doubt) let him retire to the balcony during- the next celebration.
There he will notice a lethargic-
version of the Bargain Basement
Shuffle, a type of dancing necessitated by the unlikely thumplngs*
of a rather melancholy body of
Individuals. After an interminable
space of time he will find a welcome (?) change in the floor-
show. Tills may consist in one
(only) act; perhaps many athletes
trampling about in precariously
hitched-up jockey shorts, or aping pregnant bawds in the most
vulgar manner.
Here   are  my  proposals.
1. Either dispense with the dances
altogether   or   pay   the   orchestra
yvith    vitamin    pills    instead    of
money,
2. Either omit the floor-shows
entirely or have some varied, clever or attractive features.
'■'<.   Inlrodiiee   some   novelty   dan
ces.
There must be some sorority,
fraternity or other organization Interested In improving these farces.
I made the mistake of bringing
a 4 student from another university
to one dance. It ls a pity one has
to blush for one's university.

Student Air Rates
For Hostellers
Pan-American Airways plan to
transport youth hostellers to England and return for $100 ls being
blocked by the rival British Over-
seat Airways. Present fare for
hostellers is $230.
Chuck Harris, executive of the
Canadian Youth Hostel Association, relayed this' information to a
NFCUS sponsored meeting ln Arts
10*6 yesterday.
Mr. Harris Is the only professional hostel expert ln Canada today.
Stressing the value of helping
Canadian youth to visit their contemporaries in other countries, Mr.
Harris traced the rapid growth o'
youth hostels throughout the
world.
The CYHA was started in Calgary ln 1934. There nre now three
important chains of hostels tluousli
out Canada. A number of hostels
strung between Banff and Jasper
ls being completed this year.
The first youth hostel was star
ted In Western Germany In l!)f0.
The Germans now boast hundreds
of first-class camps with thousands
of active members.
International youth hostels now
organize flights to all parts of the
world at greatly reduced rates, and
receive generous concessions on

'Democracy Not
Government'Brown
"Democracy Is not a system, of
government but a way ol life that
should be left to adjust Itself,"
was a main point of Mr. H. L.
Brown, Assistant Director of the
Trade Commissioner Service of
the federal Department of Trade
and Commerce, when he spoke on
the campus Tuesday.
Using "Canada and Latin America" as his topic and Mexico as his
example, Mr. Brown explained how
Stpajnlsh and French Influences
had Infiltrated and aided the cultural and religious principles of
Latin America.
Comparing the Latin American
and Oriental doctrines, he said:
"Oriental doctrines are more
aesthetic, therefore richer than our
own. This tempers their desire to
be friendly, especially at the present."
He concluded by emphasising
the fact that although Latin America ls a democracy, all ls not perfection there.
By PETER DE VOOGHT
(This report of the ISS chairman was to have been prcu
sented at the general AMS meeting March 15. Time did' not
allow, however, and therefore the full report is being carried by
the Ubyssey).
■Jhere were twenty-five DP students brought over by the
ISS this year and of these four came tb UBC. In addition
two exchange students came from Hamburg.
The following is an outline  of$"
next year's proposed program based
on a $'500 budget:
(1) DP
Scholarships 4® $500—»2000
12) Exchanges
(Hamburg)   2® $750—$1500
(3) Bursary fund   $ 500
(4) National Office $ 550
(5) South Blast Asia  $1000
$5660
By bringing the DP students on
scholorshipB to UBC early in the
year we can bring down expenses
to a certain extent, since they will
be able \o work during the summer
and thus save money.
It Is proposed that this exchange
program be carried on a reciprocal basis. Hamburg has indicated
that lt Is willing to provide two
scholarships tor UBC students for
study in Germany. Experience has
indicated certain economies so
that these scholarships are not
expected to cost more than $750.
■URSAAY FUND CONTINUED
It is proposed to continue the
Bursary Fund to enable foreign
students who are already here, who
would not otherwise be able to do
so, to continue their studies at
UBC. The Fund will be administered by Dean Gage.
The normal assessment of 10c per-
student will be sent to the National
Office of the ISS for use in administrative and other expenses at
the national and international level.
The South East Asia material aid
program is an Item that commits
the students of UBC to a new field
of activity. Until now the funds
administered by the Committee
on the campus have been used
almost entirely for scholarship purposes. In view of the tremendous
needs of Asia, and South East
Asia, and in particular because of
the needs of university students in
that area, the last ISS national
conference voted unanimously to
make funds available to meet this
situation. Tbe committee feels that
1'IH' should do its share in the
program. It is further sugncsted
that should more money become
available over the l%l-52 budget
figure, such money should be added
to the Asia Material Aid program.
THANKS   EXPRESSED
In conclusion I would like to express the gratitude of the ISS Committee for the support of the stu-
dens and faculty of this university.
I would personally like to endorse
this sentiment and in particular to
express my appreciation for the
help of my committee In the carrying out of our program, I would also
like to express thanks to my secretary, Miss Shirley Davidson, to two
of last summer's seminar members,
Mr. Michael Hind-Smith and Miss
felicity Pope, to Miss Ina Ritchie,
Doug Tnry and Joan Strutt, and all
the others who have so ably given
of their talent to assure the success
of the ISS program here at UBC.
New Exchange Deal
Worked Out With
Mexican Schools
A trip to Mexico during the summer holidays can be arranged for
a UBC student through a new exchange plan, being offered to Canadian universities, registrar's office announced.
By a new Student Plan of the
Americas, students of both Canada
and Mexico would visit the other's
country for three month stretches
during their respective vacation
seasons so Ihat their studies would
not be interrupted.
Students from Canida would llv«>
as guests In some Mexican home
In June, July and August, with
room and board provided free of
charge.
Opportunities will be available
for the visiting student to make
contact with educational Instill
lions and to attend classes ln the
foreign  country.
Only expenses charged to the
students are their own travelling,
personal and amusement costs.
Preferred ages of the students
lie between 16 and 24, but the only
requirement is that the student
live In the same city as that in
which the university Is located,
since the visiting student will be
a companion of the hosting student  during  tho  three-month  visit.
Authors of the plan are Mr. Oab-
ino A. Paltna, profesor in the National University of Mexico, and
professor La Nelle Copp M.A.,
graduate of the University of Wisconsin.
Interested students should write
immediately for details to Prol'er-
sor Palma-or Professor Copp, Monterrey No. 381, Mexico, D.F., Mexico.

The win brought Varsity Into
the playoffs for the OB Allen Cup,
held by the Bulldogs for the last
three years.
Varsity's game against the Bulldogs two weeks ago ended In a
draw, and chances of winning the
silverware are high this year,
California had previously
beaten I'BC G-5 and 8-0 at Berkley In the opening games. In
addition to winning both these
matches they have defeated
UCLA 23-0, Stanford 6-3, and
the San Francisco Olympic
Club 6-0. They were stopped
by Stanford.
TOUGH TEAM

squad of 18 men with previous
rugby experience, evenly distributed between the three*
line and scrum men. Bob

what some observers say was
one of the finest games seen
on the coast this season. Weather conditions were ideal for
rugger.
DRV FIELD HOPED FOR
It la hoped that the field will
be aa good today. Birds have
always displayed maximum power on a dry field.
The southern gentlemen arrived at Vancouver Airport
last night at 9:00p.m. From

by a chartered bus to fraternity houses where they will
stay.

cents."
* * *

crowds are expected.
* * *
Last year crowds of 3500 turned out for the two games
