Labelling |Iie, cgpgjlltt^ request "an impingement upon student freedom" council voted unan*.
mously Monday to refuse the request of the committee chaired by
J. R. Westlake, professor in the
law faculty.
REQUEST IN LETTER
Committee's request was made
In the form of a letter to AMS president Nonie Donaldson. Letter
stutes that "co-operation may be
better achieved by postponing publication of the proceedings of the
minutes of the student council
until after examination by this
committee . . ."
Committee asked postponement
because "... the case may arise
where certain activity, .... may
concie'vably be less than in entire
harmony with the best Interest of
the university as a whole, , . ."
"Student Council feels that cooperation may be realized more
fully," Miss Donaldson said, "but
I feel that this is, as the minute
says, an impingement on student
autonomy.
OBJECTIONS POSSIBLE
"If the committee did object to
some motion approved by council,
the matter could bo kicked around
Indefinitely by the administration
without any action being taken,"
she said.

To Aid Cup Rating
Charges that "certain fraternities are putting up candidates
merely for the sake of having

were levelled by a councillor
Monday night.

Jim Midwinter who asked that
council recommend to the Interfraternity Council that, in the future, the policy of awarding points
toward the Housser Cup to fraternities having members of student
council be discontinued.
The request, in the form of a
motion, wan, tabled fey count*} J
Monday and will be considered
again next week.
Midwinter termed the practice of
fraternities backing candidates
"detrimental to the best interests
of the Alma Mater Society.''
The Housser Cup Is awarded to
u UBC fraternity each year In recognition ot their general all-round
proficiency as a fraternal group. In
the past, groups with members on
council have been given points towards the award.

Well Muddle Through
We always thought UBC faculty members were too smart to try to take over student government on this campus. ffl
But our Facutly Committee on Student
Affairs has threatened to do just that, as
only the most naive among us will not
realize.
The threat came in the form of a letter
to Student Council this week, "suggesting"
that our student leaders keep all thejr decisions secret until the faculty committee approved them.
We're not sure yet wether Student Council was supposed to bow or curtsey at this
"request," but there's no doubt that they
were supposed to accept it as a decision of
the faculty committee. .
We can all thank Council for having the
guts to stand up and shout back a big, loud
unmistakeable "NO,"
UBC students have just as much right
to feel insulted by the faculty committee as
the latter would if students set up a committee on faculty affairs. Ah,, but what a time
we could have dictating to professors about
their use of the faculty club, the expenditure of monies they have on hand, and—this
we would really love—their disciplinary conduct!
Silly? Impossible? A week ago we would
have said that the idea of faculty members
wanting to "censor" Council's minutes was
silly and  impossible under the  traditional
conditions that have been built up at UBC.
Now we can see that such is not only
possible. It's an immediate threat.
Our esteemed faculty committeemen
have put up a set of weak arguments that
make a mockery of the fact that their chairman is a member of the Law faculty.
Their biggest contention is that in Council's decisions are publicized before faculty
sees them, and a decision is reversed, then
th University would suffer from adverse
publicity.
We insist that STUDENTS HAVE A
RIGHT TO KNOW WHEN THEIB OWN
GOVERING BODY IS NOT MAKING THE
FINAL DECISION IN ANY STUDENT
MATTER.
But we won't get tangled up here in the
theory of democracy.
The faculty committee's whole attitude nf
"do this" and "don't do that" leaves us with
but one more point to make.
OUR FACULTY COMMITTEE COULD
HELP US MOST RIGHT NOW BY UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE QUITE HAPPY AT MUDDLING THROUGH OUR OWN
AFFAIRS.
Unless our sage advisors are willing to
accept this fact, they would do well to gird
themselves for a long, bitter jurisdictional
battle that will accomplish nothing but to
prove that UBC students know their rights
and intend to keep them .
Sifting The Cinema    ** *«"•«* F«
As We Set Out For Lyonesse
We have now reached the stagp in the
AMS presidential election where the tumult
and shouting would have died, if there had
been any tumult and shouting, and tho captains and the kings should be packing thtir
carpet bags. That is, if there were any captains and kings involved in this year's spit-
spat, fiddle-faddle presidential race.
We offer Vaughan Lyon our congratulations on his victory, but none of its (except
perhaps hi.s two opponents) will envy him for
the job that lies ahead of him.
When he moves into the southwest corner of Brock Hall later this spring, Lyon will
find he has to take over from one of the most
paradoxical'student councils in AMS history.
Mr. Lyon will find he has inherited an
administration that has combined infuriating
conservatism w'ith admirable originality and
progressivism.
He will discover, though, that the final
test lies not in theoretical policy but in
achievement. On that count, our present
Council owes few, if any, apologies.
We would like to caution Mr. Lyon here
to remember when he picks up the Council
gavel that he is not about to open Parliament.
'He should bear in mind that one item of
down-to-earth workability is worth a whole
Hansard of constitutional gobbledygook.
It's true that an AMS president has a
certain dignity to uphold and certain formalities to observe.
But anyone who takes the job over with a
mind to getting action while keeping peace
in the Alma Mater family will find that the
necessary dignity and protocol will take care
of themselves.
The Bird Cage
An Open Letter to Felicity.
Dear Miss Pope:
As one who spent hi.s summer bushed,
b - - - d and bewildered deep in the sticks,
my summer experiences will probably look
pretty sick, but I thoiught they were worth
bringing up anyway.
I'm just a. narrow, igftoraht Canadian
boy who wouldn't know an ISS ietninar if I
had one shoved down my throat and I won't
mind if you sneer once or twice if I tell you
I've never cruised around Europe leaving a
wake of Christian ideals, tolerance and
booze.
Don't blow smoke in my face yet, though,
because we did exchange a few ideas. For
example the boss would give me his ideas on
sharpening axes, and I would give my idea
on what to do with the axes. This gave us a
chance to appreciate one another's viewpoint
and give a critical examination of our own
preconceived ideas, What's more wc hardly
ever came to blows.
Let me tell you first of all how our
travels brought us into contact with various
cultural media, with minds alien to our own,
villagers who glared suspiciously and muttered to themselves about "them university educated know-alls," the vibrant, pulsating song
of the woods echoed by hearty, care-free men
who lived for the moment, revelling in their
own strength as they toppled mightly firs,
the blatant, condescending tourists who marvelled at our timber resources and talked annexation' Needless lo sny I  was conlinuallv
By Hyfen
fomenting an intellectual revolution, and the
fellow next to me even came out in a rash.
The latter might have been from too many
strawberries, though.
For a while we stayed at Revektoke, a
CPR town at the beginning of the Big Bend
Highway. It's a well known fact that Revelstoke appears as Revelstroke on American
maps, spelt with a long, sensuous sigh on the
last syllable, not as it does on Canadian maps
with a short, accented syllable suggestive
of heart failure. This explains why this otherwise insignificant burg becomes a Mecca for
pleasure-loving Americans who are invariably doomed to disappointed.
Their little minds feverishly buzzing
with thoughts of the orgiastic fun connotated
by the word 'Revelstroke' they descended
the Big Bend in droves driving madly so as
not to miss one sensual moment.
Every so often they would fall upon a
bleak, disheartened little band of mosquito-
ridden men, envelop them in a cloud of Good
Earth and shout "How far to Revel-
s-t-r-o-k-e?" They would hang out the windows, salivating in anticipation.
"Revelstoke," we told them, "stoke as in
stoker, rhymes with coke."
And they would turn back, beaten and
lifeless, moaning like whipped curs.
So you see, Miss Felicity, we came in
contact with different ideas and ideals, but
we weren't the least bit tolerant. Our attitude
toward religion wasn't shallow and insincere,
In fact wo used lo use the Lord's name all llie
time.
John Ford is one of the few film
directors to merit the praise wliieh
Hollywood tends to lavish on Its
favorite sons. In the past, he has
been responsible for such admittedly excellent pictures as "The
Informer," "The Grapes of Wrath,"
and "The Long Voyage Home."
He is one of those rare figures in
the American cinema who have
succeeded in combining artistic
quality with commercial success.
In doing this he has had to combat the ever present pressure from
studio executives for more and
more films in less and less time.
It is only natural that he should
occasionally find himself caught
up in the high-speed Hollywood
"entertainment" factory. When this
happens, we get a film like "Rio'
Grande."
"Rio Grande" is Ford's latest
picture but, it is by no means his
best. Certain sequences are excellent, the opening for example, but
the overall impression is of a
scrappy, hurried job of film-making that is Just downright dull in
too many spot*. It reminds one
of one of Ford's other eggs. "Fort
Apache," in its sloppy pacing and
Indifferent imagery.
Maureen O'Hara is the most obviously bad thing in the film. Her
portrayal of the wife of a fort
commander in the far west is tire-
somely bad, particularly when she
ls playihg opposite such a fine
actor as John Wayne.
The plot is all about a wife's
misunderstanding of her husbanfd
and her son. It forms a weak clothes line on which to hang numerous Ind tan raids and displays of
fine horsemanship. The plausibility of it all is not helped by the
musical score which tends to indulge in little fancies of its own,
from time to time, such as sobbing
out "I'll Take You Home Again
Kathleen' in the middle of an Apache raid for the sole reason that
O'Hara has decided to faint. (She
Is  Kathleen.)   This  sort  of thing
woukl not be surprising In an average "outdoor picture," but coming from Ford, It Is a bitter disappointment. His talent is too precious to be thrown away like this.
"Odette" is a British entry which
goes a loMg way toward re-estab-
Ifihtn'g that reputation for Integrity
which fifomj from the Old Country
had slowly built up during, and
fmtoi-etfatMy after the war. It tells
the trti» story of' a British agent
workinf in occupied France, her
succefeBfuf espionage against the
Nazis, eventual capture by the Gestapo, and* final escape.
In fictibttaliaed form, alien a talc
Would hold little Interest today,
but Odette's story has the tremendous advantage of authenticity. As
played' by Anna Negle, her heroism
Is bi'OUght out ln a manner wtilch
lifts this film out of the ordinary
and reflects considerable credit
on its maker, Herbert Wilcox.
While the' picture suffers from
very   rough   characterisation,   Its
adm'rnhlo balance between "stlff-
uppe--Up" reticence and sensational melodrama helps to create a believable picture of part of the
French underground,
Miss Neagle's performance ls surprisingly good when one considers that her previous experience
has been mainly in lighter films
of the musical comedy type. Mow-
ever, lt seems impossible for tho
writers of these film-biographies
of living people to create ftilly
rounded characters. The film
would have been much better if
ull the members of the resistance
movement hadn't been quite such
jolly fine chaps,

Letters To
The Editor
Editor,  The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
As a Montreal subscriber and a
NI<X"US Exchange Student from
I'BC to McGill, 1 would like to
congratulate you on your three issues of Jan. 16, 18 and 111 which I
thought wore' some of the best of
the year and approached the standards which are mentally set by
students who are away from the
university, students who look at
their years at "good old UBC" as
the best UBC ever had, the past
and future years diminishing greatly in color, personalities and spirit,
et al.
Congratulations for the recoup
after the rather drastic denouement of white columns, and more
Issues to impress the east.
Jane Banfleld.
Kditor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Any soccer fans wlto wore at
I'BC a couplo of years ago will
remember Jackie Cowan, a brilliant young playe'r who was the captain and star of some very fine
Varsity teams In the years prior
to 1941). At that time he accepted
a lucrative offer and departed to
play Old Country football.
A recent letter from a Scottish
uncle reports that Jack Is now
playing regularly at left back for
Dundee, which Is curently one of
the best teams In the country, lie
is also being frequently mentioned
as a likely choice to play for Scot-
hind in International matches, the
equivalent of All-American rating
in the U.S.
I covered soccer for the Ubyssey
from '47 to '49, an era when Cowan,
along with Ivan Carr, Bobby
Moulds, tins MacBween aud others
made up some powerful teams
which were sadly neglected and
ignored both hy students and by
Sports Kdltors doling out space.
I hope the hoys are getting a
better deal now, and that they
soon achieve the Coast League
status I'or which they are long-
overdue.
Sincerely,
Dave   Cross.

Arrow Valenties are sure-fire

And as for neat-knotting . . . they

Brings Award To Cooke
A long and glowing record of work for civil liberties has
brought the Garnett Sedgewick Award for 1949 to Rev. Dr.
A.E. Cooke, pastor of Qualicum United Church.
His Sunday evening forums on
democracy, conducted when he was
minister of St. John's United
Church ln Vancouver, were familiar to most Vancouver residents.
Perhaps less well-known is tho
fact that he led these forums for
nearly 15 years—starting when he
was first appointed to St. John's.
And eve'n then they were not a
new Idea to him—during an earlier
few years of service In this city,
he began the discussion groups.
■ Rev. Cooke was horn in Belfast,
Ireland, and first came to Vancouver .nearly 40 years ago.
The Garnett Sedgewick annual
award, in recognition of his work,
will be presented to him by UDC
campus branch, Canadian Civil Liberties Union, in Engineering 200
at 12:30 p.m. Friday.
Dr. Cooke will speak on "Christianity and Oivil Liberties."

LETTERS TO EDITOR
Irate Soccerites
Protest Column
(Austin Delany's colmun, printed in The Ubyssey of
Tuesday, has brought a storm of protest from supporters of
the UBC soccer team. Feeling that it is only fair to present
bbth sides of the question, we print here two letters written
to the Ubyssey Sports Editor.)
Sports Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I feel that Austin Delany's column in the Ubyssey of
Tuesday, February 6, should not go unchallenged.
There are a few truths, many half-truths and even more
obvious inaccuracies contained in his statements about Varsity
soccer.
Along with Dave Todd, vice-president of Pacific Coast
Soccer League, I have been convinced of Varsity's present
strength and I have faith in its future achievements. .
In the first place, Varsity has played 14 games this year;
of these, the team haa lost two. It is now in the finals of the
Imperial Cup—awarded in competition with all teams in the
Vancouver and District League, and will go into the final game
With at least a fifty-fifty chance. It seems improbable that,
as Mr. Delany claims, "there are many Vancouver and Dis*
trict League teams better than the present Varsity team,"
When the team in question has proved itself perhaps best and
In any case second-best.
At present, two UBC students are playing Pacific Coast
League soccer for outside teams. There are at least two high-
school students—potential university students—playing in the
same league. It is highly probable that if the Varsity soccer
team was admitted to the Pacific Coast League, (that is, if
it desires admittance) these men would turn out for Varsity.
Mr. Delany's accusation that the Varsity team is a
"puny thing at best" seems to me a statement of ignorance.
. A man who examined the records could not possibly reach
such a conclusion.

Sports Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
The UBC Thunderbird Soccer Team has been getting a
great amount of publicity lately, and very little of it is complimentary.
Let me state a few facts.
Of the 13 games they have played the team has lost two,
one of these to Firemen who are undoubtedly one of the best
squads in Canada. They have reached the final of the Imperial
Cup, emblematic of V & D supremacy.
At present, they are in second plage in league standing,
three games off the pace setters but with four games in hand,
When all this was being done there was very little publicity. In fact, the 'Birds did not ask for any until the District
League rolled out the welcome mat. The team has made no
application, the "puny outfit" was not even consulted No one
bothered to ask the players what they think of it all
Tuesday's Ubyssey carried a column by ex-halfback Austin Delany, who previously reported for the Sun. The team
has never reclaimed to be of Coast League calibre, Mr. De
laney, but you obviously don't know that at least three of
the players have standing offers from Coast League teams.
I am surprised that The Ubyssey should print Delany'3
article about the best team UBC has had in many a year.
Surely the sports staff could have at least attempted to find
out the truth before editing such rot.
BOB MOULDS.
Captain, UBC soccer team.
