Romberg Operetta Success
T 1 f r T T  .
Dress Rehearsal Impresses Writer
The late Sigmund Romberg found another sue
ceasful partner for producing his rollicking, light
hearted operetta "The Student Prince" when in their
final dress rehearsal the
Mussoc society introduced
the production.
Although, in the main, the
entire caat of 42 played extremely well there are two chief reasons why the operetta should
ib« well-received.
The first was Mllla Andrew
playing in the role of Kathle,
the serving girl with whom
Prince Karl falls in love. Miss
Andrew's clear, rich and surprisingly powerful soprano
voice marks her as a truly
great singer. Her acting, too
/was faultless as she entered
completely into the part ot
the pert young waitress.
The other reason wm Norman Young cast as Lutz, the
Prince's personal valet. This
comic role could, if played
weakly, easily degenerate into
a burden.
*Tr *Tr *r
Yet Young, by his superb acting ability had tbe entire audi*
ence waiting for his appearances. One could sense the pleasurable anticipation that rippled aroung the auditorium when
Luts strode pompously onto the

his  valet  Hubert,  played   by
Gerald Lecovln. The two were

Kelvin Service gave a performance in his portrayal of
Prince Karl the leading character ot the operetta. His tenor
voice, though mellow and pleasing was however not sufficiently strong for him to be heard at
all times. Especially in his
duets with Miss Andrew tter-
vioe was drowned out Perhaps
the fact that this performance
UBC Smashes Record
In Blood Donor Drive
High Pressure Campaign
S*ndV Total Over 3000 Mark
UBC Tuesday become the "Most Red-blooded university on
the North American continent" by collecting 3004 pints of blood,
4 pints over their quota.
This tops the previous record ot
28110 pints, made by the University of Texas.
More than half of the UDC stu
dent body—'54 per cent to be exact
—contributed to make this the
most successful campaign ln the
university's history. In the previous drive last October only 1400
pints   were  collected.

Faculty of Forestry lod the
field in the "bloody" contest,
reaching 200 per cent ot their Initial quota. Thin-blooded lawyers
were the .only ones not reaching
the point set for them on the big
thermometers — they collected a
mere A3 per cent of their quota.'
Other faculties were well over
the top. Engineers made 170 per
cent of quota, beating by a nice
margin tbe Artsmen's 114 per:cent
Medicals reached 151 per cent,

For days prior to the opening
of the Donor Clinic, students were
mystified by signs asking "who is
Miss or Mr. B?" "B"  turned out
to be the 1000th blood donor and
received an award from the Forestry Club.
Red Cross officials were overwhelmed by the terrific rnspons*
to the drive, and had to have more
bottles flown In from Edmonton to
take care of would-be donors.
Eight To Go
Late Tuesday afternoon, with
only eight more pints to go, blood
drive officials were seen frantic
ally running through the Cafeteria
corbeling unlucky students who
had not yet donated, and forcing
them to sign on the dot'.ed line

first Mussoc production was

Karl. His acting was too stilted,
but that was most probably
due to "first night blues." Also

Under the second, a proposed
.amendment    must    bo    posted    in

Sporting Blood
rmsWb organizers of the jBlood drive are to be congratulated
Ji'~%fc» difference between the usual 1300 odd pints and the
present total is due solely to their efforts. Their effective
bloockdraining campaign has demonstrated how susceptible we
are to cajolery and the challenge of competition.
W# have given 3004 pints of blood. We did not donate
blood because we realized the importance of blood plasma;
wt bled to outbleed a distant university. This fact may prove
that w» have sporting blood in our veins; it certainly says nothing for our altruism.
To Do Or Not To Do
MAN is like a machine;%if he is not used in the right
way and for the right purposes something goes wrong
With him. He is also unlike a machine; first, he can determine
how and for what purposes he should use himself as a man i.e.
discover the rules of ethics or morality, and second, he is free
to follow these rules or not. If man follows these directions he
will function smoothly and actually be happiest and freest.
Man learns these ethical rules instinctively, by tradition
and by reasoning. Instinctively, through the voice of conscience, he has always known; taking a man's life is not like
taking another animal's life; we are bound to live together
under certain rules; sexual intercourse has to be contained
Within given limits; we are bound to look beyond things to
the Invisible.
Other men's experience, self-reflection and thinking also
sl>ow him the best rules. He can-see that excess in food, drink
or aex makes him unhappy or that stealing and killing cause
disorder and he himself ultimately suffers. Reason concludes
that a good general rule is that man will be most happy if all
'his desires are moderately fulfilled.
Christianity tells man his most important need or end is
God and that he will be most happy if all his other needs are
subordinated to attaining God. It gives him thc directions to
do this, helps his weakness and through Christ supplies that
new life required for the finite to attain thc Infinite.
Many today dislike moral rules considering them unnatural, man-made rules which interfere with the normal development and evolution or man into a higher type of being;
Witness Nietzsche's "Beyond God and Evil"; Existentialism's
demand for absolute liberty e.g. Sartre's "No Exit"; the Communist desire for a classless society which could not be if
men remained as unequal in brains, personality and strength
as they are now.
Blind, trial and error evolution may he normal for beings
without reason and freedom who cannot determine /or themselves the best and quickest way to evolve. But it would be
anti-evolutionary for man to refuse to use his higher powers
of reason and freedom and subject himself again to the blind
laws of chance. There is one unquestionable type of evolution
in man and it consists in his deeper understanding of himself,
his needs, his rights and his purpose.

Ma*. Coon's laughing face
could not prevent me from
taking seriously his two distasteful articles about the dead
King George VI. Although Mr.
C. did succeed ln putting too
much sense In his lines, his big
ideas peeled off tho tree he
sits   on,   can   easily  annoy.
I am not a British subject
and I am as emotionally tied
up to Britain as perhaps Mr.
C. is to Ethiopia, but nevertheless the Bad event of the
Monarch's death touched my
heart and not the brain as in
Mr. C.'s case.
I cah assure Mr. C. that countries which have nothing to do
with Great Britain paid greater and sincerer tribute than 1
could see around me here.
Would Mr. C. spend a minute
to think why? If he can't find
the answer I would advise him
to climb down from the tree
—perhaps then he will understand.
The death of a man such as
George VI, Is not a very proper
subject for critical comments.
Even the Russians realized
that! Mr. C. tries to justify his
statements by referring to his
"great teacher'' Barry Mother.
If Mr. Mother says so, then
Mr. C. you are right.
In conclusion I would stress
how I liked Mr. C.'s logic. In
his first sentence he pleads for
our connection with Britain
as a very valuable one, as a
definite step towards a world
community of nations. But
later he wants us to act as
citizens of a grown-up nation
and to condemn the declaring
of Elizabeth as queen of Canada as an act of a colonial government. GEORGE ROHN.
IFC Prexy Criticizes Lyon-Dadson Stand
Here are some facts for you
Mr. Lyon and Mr. Dadson.
I have read with disgust
the many articles you have
been Inserting In local papers
to stir up unrest against fraternities and sororities. You
have recently chosen Brotherhood Week as an excuse to
criticize us so-called outsiders.
The fraternity system is tlio
most outstanding example of
brotherhood. Fraternities are
organized so that men with
common ideals and faiths can
'band together to ma in even
higher ideals. Fraternities and
sororities are an Integral part
of any university and their
code is bound inseparably with
the university of which thoy
are a part.
Another point they may fail
to realize is that a fraternity
or sorority Is not a club. Clubs
are organized to play one spent
or to engage in one particular
activity. As such, they limit
llioir member's activities. Fraternities consist of men who
have  many common interests.
If you consider us discrlma-
-tory then you must also class
the Catholic Church and '.he
'Church of England as discriminating. The fact is, however,
that the Intra Fraternity
Council passed a motion to
tho effect that fraternities hold
no discrimination against race
creed or color. Have you tried
to Join a fraternity or are your
coinmenls   just   idle   chatter?
You have grossly exaggerated the "financial barler" which
is claimed to exist. The total
expenses for sonic fraternities
are less than $15.00 per year
and tiu* soroities, on the average, are even less expensive.
The average smoker spends
feir   more   on   smokes   than   bo
would ever spend on a fraternity.
Fraternities and Sororities
are tiie nucleus on the campus
for organizing and backing
many worthwhile activities.
They provide scholarships and
bursnrlos for the less fortunate
How many clubs do this?
Many fraternities give active
support to boy's clubs throughout the city.
Every club on the campus,
furthermore, lias in its numbers many fraternity and sorority members, and in a groat
many cases thoso 'members
form a part, of the executive.
Also, die executive of the various faculties and the AMS
Council contain men and women who are a part of our system.
I believe that yon are wrong
in (ailing us "outsiders," Many
students at university who are
non-fraternity or sorority members simply do not wish to
join for personal reasons, but
accept us as a part of the college of which they are members. I would like to Invite
any dissenters to rush us and
find out personally about our
organizations. Idle . chatter is
In closing I havo not meant.
to differentiate ourselves from
any other group on the campus.
We are a part of the university, as are the various clubs.
Wo depend on the support of
each other. Let's cut this Idle v
talk and work together, as wc
have clone In the past. We all
have faults but I believe those
worthwhile activities in which
we participate far outweigh
I'res.   Inter   Fraternity
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Messrs, Lyon and Dadson
have chosen Brotherhood Week
as an appropriate time for expressing their unbrotherly sentiments concerning fraternities
and sororities.
Aside from the fact that they
are not members of a fraternity, and hence are hardly qualified to discuss the matter, Mr.
Lyon's attitude seems particularly out of place in one who
has difficulty in obtaining the
support and confidence of the
Students' Council.
According to these brethren,
a fraternity is a campus body
formed with the avowed purpose of excluding all racial and
religious elements other than
the accepted few. In reality, fraternities are self-supporting,
•self-regulating campus groups
containing students from all
walks of life. They have no
political, religious or moral ixe
to grind. No other university
organization can claim to represent as. many diversified
campus point of view as the
fraternal bodies.
Imposing on none, the fraternities and sororities as a "minority" group will continue to
give their Alma Mater the high
quality of leadership and service which thoy have so freely
dispensed in the past.

I have been reading with
mounting rage tho letters to
the editor in the Ubyssey, on
the subject of the cartoon captioned "It's an exchange student from Africa," which appeared   some   weeks   ago.
I was amazed to see that
the reputedly intelligent Bob
Loosmore,   in   eonjuclion   with
a feminine friend, was the
first to champion the causo
of righteousness." At that time
almost a whole column ln your
newspaper was wasted. It
might have carried a worthy
news story, a paid advertisement, or, rather than the drivel it did, a completely blank
Inspired by his grandiloquent beginnings a number of columns in the same vein sprang
Into print. Lesser in literary
quality of course, but quite
equal ln unadulterated nonsense.
I was disheartened to see
an apology in the newspaper.
But perhaps the magnanlmltv
of the editors serves only to
throw into greater relief the
ridiculousness of these aforementioned letters. What a gigantic lack of thought and perception must pervade a group
of students who think that on
a campus such as UBC, racial
derision would be countenanced by the editors of their
newspaper. What an insult to
those editors.
The latest cry from the ranks
or the persecuted few comes
from one who signs himself,
"a colored student," and Who,
In effect, begs excuse for living and suggests, perhaps ty

delicacy of feeling, I am forced to agree that that would
be a most intelligent plan.
The majority at UBC welcome foreign students on the
campus. They are liked for
their individual personalities
and are respected for the contribution they make to the university as a whole. The fact
that all students on the campus are valued for their true
worth rather than on the basis
of .their nationality, color, or
the particular slant of their
eyes has been made signally
obvious by the recent outcome
of the AMS presidential election.
We should show great pity
for the individuals represented in Mr. Loosmore's, and in
other letters, who showed
such a misplaced avidity ot
perception as to derive anything damning from that
harmless cartoon. Since they
have, one must assume either
that tbe damnation ls deserved, or that their Intelligence
is on a par with the now famous ape in the picture.
The members of the engineering faculty did not develop
editorial diarrhoea over the
fact that said ape was dressed
In an engineer's sweater. For
the simple reason that thay
had the good common* sense
to realize that the cartoon was
merely an innocuous bit of
The hypochondriac can always find a disease for himself. Likewise if the foreign
students wish to find persecution factors around the campus it will not be difficult.

Saturday was a good day.
Classes ended at 1*2 o'clock, the
whole afternoon was free, it
was almost 12 now.
Ian   hoped   that   the   other
boys would start a game    of
soccer after lunch. He knew
that they wouldn't mind him
Joining in because he played
full-back on the junior team,
and he hoped some day to become  a  defenceman  on   the
senior team. Mr. Peters' had
even mentioned his name in
front of the school's 93 pupils,
after the Juniors had won an
important   match   against   St.
Martin's.   He   said   that   Ian
might become a good player
if he kept up the fine way-in
which he always fed the ball
to the forwards  (Ian had a
powerful   kick  for   his   age,)
even though he should become
a little more aggressive In his
play.   True,   Mr.   Peters   had
mentioned seven other players
by   name.   But   anyway,   Ian
could write home to his parents and tell them only what
the headmaster had said about
him. Then they'd think ... No,
they'd   know   the   truth   and
laugh. They always laughed at
him. Well, what if he wasn't
good at soccer, he was good
at singing. Mrs. Black said he
was. And painting. He was the
best ln the class. Jones was a
dirty bully for splashing paint
all  over  that picture of the
jug and the bananas. He did
that to everybody, but they all
laughed. Even though Ian got
angry, Jones did it, worse than
to the others. Ian couldn't understand it. He wished that he
could laugh Uke they did. Oh,
damn them, anyway,
The bell went, meaning that
the week-end had started. Ian
ran off to lunch, shouting with
the others as loud as he could.
It was biasing not that afternoon, but the soccer players didn't mind that. They ran
and shouted and kicked the
<ball with as much zest as they
had done an hour earlier when
they started the game.
Ian was reading ln stops and
starts, not concentrating on
the book at all. He was sitting
on tho ground with his back
to the woodshed, which was
about a hundred yards from
where the fellows were playing.
"Hey, come on Ian," Kenneth had shouted as he led a
crowd to the soccer field at
the run. Ian had almost jumped up, but stopped as Ken
yelled tp the others and paid
no further attention to him.
"He calls himself my, best
friend," Ian thought, "but he
really prefers the others. 1%
too different ... he gets bored ... of course, I really don't
care. I'll read; I'll show him I
don't   care."
Then he put the book down
and joined in the game. He
liked soccer, too much.
Kenneth was on the other
side and was one of the forwards. Mr. Peters said that
lie. showed more promise than
any other of the juniors.
Though a little erratic, the
Headmaster Bald, Kenneth was
very aggressive, always following up any advantage he
had. "I bet I'll be as good as
him though . . . when I get
on the Seulor team," muttered Ian as he took his place
ln front of the goal mouth, a
little to one side.
Kenneth was running down
the field with the ball at his
feet. Ian troated over to Intercept him. A quick flash of his
bopt, though, and Kenneth was
by him  like a flash.
With' a quietly snarled sob,
Ian kicked at his best friend's
foot, tripping him. Afterwards, Ian's mind repeated
over and over to him how
Kenneth had yelled, "You
* fool]" and the other players
booed and jeered, and how he
himself had laughed at them
and run off by himself to ory
ln  the  bathroom.*
Mid-day on Sunday was very
hot. Jack, who had a thermometer, was very excited he-
cause it waas 106 degrees In
the shade. He had a chart, and
he said that this was the hot-

Among these elder hoys wss

sat right behind Ian. He was
not a very good singer, but he
was the captain of the Senior soccer team and often g'tve
Ian advice on what to do and
what aot to do. "Oo after htm,
go after him,* he always shouted at Ian.
Ian used to pray at night for
Ood to make him as good a
soccer player as Cawley was;
so that he could show his friends and Kenneth and Jo
(who wasn't any good at sports
at all) how important he was.
He used to imagine whole stories about haw he would make

Whenever Cawley spoke to htm

test day for that month in the
last five years. Jack was a
nice fellow. Ian liked him because he was quiet and, being
lame, could not go in for sports
very much, except swimming
He was good at swimming. But
Ian was the school obampion
in the juniors.
Ian went down to the thicket
around the old well, where he
could lie down , ln the tall
grass, burnt yellow at this
time of the year, and look at
the sky and the mountains
without anybody being able to
see him at all.
He liked the mountains. He
liked to imagine himself climbing to the ton of the big
glacier near the summit of that
mountain, 12,000 feet, 13,000
feet ... up, up!
Last night he had dreamt ■
about climbing. He was with
Peter Cawley, the school captain, and both were very tired
an they neared the top of the
mountain. Ian remembered
how Cawley showed him the
best footholds. He also remembered a funny weak feeling in
his knees.
At the top of the mountain
they found a very springy diving board. Ian dived off and
soared up into the sky, his
arms outspread and a funny smile on his face; sort of
happy and aad. As he hovered
in the air, Ian could see nothing but huge mountains below
him, all covered with spow,
like lumps of ice cream. He
thrilled at the sensation of altitude.
Ian's mother said that you
get close to Heaven in the
mjuulalns. And she said that
everybody is happy wien you
are close to Heaven. Like
when you are. in Chapel. You
feel a sort of feeling Inside,
that everything ls alright, and
that Ood will help you. Something like in his dream last
night, when Cawley had guided him up the mountain-side.
That morning he had sung
ln the chapel choir as usual.
He was the leading soprano.
He sat right up in front of ;he
The bell went for tea-time.
Ian hated to leave the thicket;
it was so alone, so peaceful,
so separated. And the afternoon had gone so quickly. He
enjoyed the thicket as much
as he did Chapel. No . . . almost as much.
He got up pouting and wandered across the soccer pitch,
empty now, towards the
Peter Cawley waa walking
across the earth quadrangle,
between the outer classrooms
and the main school building.
He was alone.
"Are you using your Mt
foot Ian?" he said as the latter approached, "Oh, I forget
to at times, but . . ."
'Don't" Cawley snapped. You
must learn to use both your
feet in soccer, or else you're
no good."
"Okay, Cawley, I'll try to remember."
The elder boy laughed. "You
think  you're  good  at  singing
In Chapel, don't you,"
Ian looked gravely at him,
then away.
"How can you he*r, when I
yell down your neck?"
Ian smiled a Uttle, and ft?
plied "Oh, its' easy. I . . ."

Jan whs quite dumbfounded.
The service had heen so nice
and sleepy and pleasant. Cawley was always right about
things, yet he laughed at the
sermon ... at the Bermon,
The world was turning inside
out, surely.
Ian ran after Cawley. "Reverend MceDermot IS sort of
silly, isn't he-" "Course he
is," laughed the big boy, I
don't believe in Ood."
There wasn't ipuch to do
at study period that evening.
But Ian didn't want to write

imagination play all arou»<l

, Not content to do their allotted
tusk, that of stopping the opposing attackers, UBC's' husky forward pack contributed 12 out of
the 18 points scored by the Birds.
Front row men Charlie Brum-
weir and Frank Gower scored both
of the first half ties. Brumwell
carried three Vancouver'men over
thf, Une with him as he bulldozed
through the Reps defence from a
lino out. Gower, after breaking up
a Vancouver attack dribbled the
ball past all defenders, picked up
and charged down the field.
Hooker Bill Mulholland completed the forwards share of the
scoring as he converted three out
of four attempts. Convert kicking
has been one ef the weakest points
of the Birds and If Mulholland continues to boot them over with
such machine like regularity one
of Coach Albert. Lalthwalte's biggest headaches will  be solved.
But If one problem has been
solved an even larger one came as
a result of Saturday's gam*. Captain Gerry Main, one of the best
players and leaders ln local circles, was severely Injured.
Although he refused to go off
the field and played the remainder
of the game in right wing the
cliarley horse he suffered in the
early part of the second half will
be enough to keep him from playing perhaps for the remainder of
the season.
iRight winger George Puil, playing ln Main's inside position was
the first back to figure in the
scoring. Making one of his tricky,
baffling runs Pull successfully
shook the Vancouver defence.
Then, when the game was nearly
over Pull did a repeat performance but on being tackled passed
back to Main who was able to
amble across the lino to complete
the rout.
Despite the Impressive score
and the equally Impressive showing of the forwards the game was
one of the worst of the entire
season. Repeated fumbling by both
squads /ind particularly by the
three lines happened all too frequently throughout the game. Fortunately for the Birds Vancouver
was by far the worst offender and
this coupled with the forward's
opportune playing made the difference.

'Birds Were
Really Going   'i
Last Wednesday night seems a long time ago but on thit
night the UBC Thunderbird hockey team really had themselves
a big night. They chopped down the Burnaby Beavers by a score
of 13-6 to win the first game of the semi-finals in the Commercial Hockey League. * ""—
Birds really went ou a scoring
spree in all three periods. Tliey
led 6-2 at the end of the first period,
9-5 at the end of the sandwich session and coasted home by banging
in four more goals lu the final
And the most Important thing is
that the Burnaby Beavers did not
give up trying to win throughout
tbe entire game. After beating the

By virtue of two strenuous practices and a couple of vigorous pep
