coffee. Gwen Verdon, Bonny Donaldson,
and Marion Muir test the new brew in
Brock's charming ultra-spacious tea-room.
Despite the empty tables Thursday, the

'French   Chaos
We have never had much sympathy for the advocacies of
[American isolationists but the recent French national elections
[have brought us as close to their way of thinking as we ever
Jcare to come. France entered her elections in chaos and emerged
[in chaos. We almost blame the isolationists for crying, "why
j should we help them when they won't even help themselves."
(The truth of the matter is we help countries like France berceuse it is in our own best interests to do so. But that is beside
[the point.
The far right wing Poujadists, whose rallying cry was
J'taxes are for the Americans not Frenchmen," and the Com-
lunist Party recorded strong gains in last Monday's elections,
leither the right of centre party of Antoine Pierre and Edgar
i'aure nor the left of centre party of Pierre Mendes-France
iron enough seats to ensure France of its first stable government
linee the war.
So France is destined to another five years of political
ratability by which she herself and the whole Western alliance
/ill suffer. Meanwhile the fascists and- the communists will
fain more ground.
The fault does not lie, as many say, in the French electoral
/stem. Even if Premier Faure had not called a snap election
md had waited until June to change the electoral system and
ten hold elections the results would probably have been the
fcame. France had the single member constituency, used in
Canada and Great Britain, and it did not result in stable government.
Both Faure and Mendes-France are radicals and there is
klmost no difference between the policies of the two. But because of personal feuds and opposite temperrhents the two men
/ere unable to bring their followers together under a united
front and present a united program to the French electorate.
Tow these two men must take turns organizing coalitions among
Prance's multiplicity of parties and form governments  that'
rill rise and fall like an acrobat doing pushups.
It looks as if no party or permanent coaltion will be big
lough in the coming years to get a permanent majority in
Parliament and France will again be disunited at the head.
It is time that petty jealousies were put aside and a unity of
purpose brought out. If chaos continues in France the wbrld
irill wake up one of these election's days to find that Moscow's
atellite is washed by the waters of the Bnglish Channel.
-New   Members   For   U.N.
To   Mean   Many   Changes
The New York Times
The United Nations, which opened for business in January, 1946, with 51 members, has
a good chance to start its second decade with 78. The organization is still quite a way from
matching the growth figures of Nassau County, but it is certainly showing more life than
anybody would have thought possible a year ago.
Leaving aside the complexities involved in getting seven votes in the Security Council
for each of the proposed 18, there is still no guarantee that Nationalist China will permit the
election of Outer Mongolia.   ■* "
Christine Jorgensen advertised as the "world's most talked

Jext week. It is interesting to note that Christine is advertised
a "person" and not as a male or female. Apparently they

It is surely indicative of something that people consider
pristine nightclub entertainment and will pay money to see
fer, if we may use that pronoun. Just what that something is

Perhaps it is just natural curiosity. Perhaps some people

The fate of the membership
deal hangs- on that decision.
However, sentiment in favor
has reached avalanche proportions, and even if it should fail
to get through this week, it
seems certain to do so within
a few months. *If the Nationalists use the veto now, in other
words, they simply will not be

states. If *he substitution of
the principle of universality
does nothing else, it should
give the Assembly hall and the
subcommittee rooms a somewhat crowded look.
The crowded atmosphere
should be especially noticeable
at meetings of the Security
Council, the Economic and Social Council and the Trusteeship Council. The various blocs
backing the membership deal
intend to increase the membership of all three councils, the
object being to make possible
the election of their proteges.
It would be too muoh, of
course, to expect the anticipated new blood to create a
new organization. But the arrival of new delegates and new
disputes will be a welcome
Anyone who has listened to
Indian attacks on South Africa in the Assembly for ten
consecutive years will be relieved to have the Indians shift
their attentions to Portugal

Furthermore, since the standards of public speaking in the
United Nations are very low,
everybody except the British
will be delighted to hear some
Irish oratory about the wrongs
that have been inflicted on
Northern Ireland since the
days of Cromwell.
As it happens, Northern Ireland and Goa are very nearly
the only issues in the post-war
world that so far have not been
deposited on the doorstep of
the United Nations. They symbolize the new orientation that
will be given to the organization with the arrival of its new
Four of the ten new European members, of course, are

continent by the Iron Curtain.
However, the developing solidarity has been demonstrated
this fall by the way Western
Europe joined in the struggle
to prevent Eastern Europe's
seat on the Security Council
from going to Asia, The contributions to the United Nations by Brig. Gen. Carlos P.
Romulo would otherwise have
resulted in the election of the
Philippines long ago.
Yet there is no European
bloc nor any prospect of one,
while there is very definitely
an Asian-African bloc. This
has been in the process of formation for several years, but
the Bandung conference gave
it far greater cohesion and
The membership deal calls
for the admission of two Arab
countries, Jordan and Libya,
five Asian countries, and Outer Mongolia, which, although
theoretically an Asian country,
is apparently a Soviet province.
The addition of seven Asian-
African votes, plus five additional members of the Soviet
bloc, carries some obvious connotations.
Whenever the deal goes
through the following will develop:
(1) The Soviet bloc will not
be so nakedly in the minority.
On its worst days the Soviet
delegation in the Assembly is
now beaten 55 to 5. Sixty-eight
to 10 will be much better from
the Soviet point of view.
(2) Seven new members of
the Asian-African bloc, together with the increased strength
of the Soviet bloc, will provide
important strength for the
anti-colonial bloc. In fact it
will be able to count on the
control of the Assembly, regardless of the Charter provision against interference in the
domestic affairs of states.
(3) Leaving aside such countries as Pakistan, the Philippines and Thailand, the membership of the neutralist bloc
is identical with that of the
anti-colonial bloc. The preponderance of neutralists among
the new members will virtually rule out any possibility of
using the Assembly as a substitute for the Security Council in repelling an aggression.
Since the Security Council has
already been put out of action
by the Soviet veto, the world
must now look exclusively to
regional security pacts for defense against aggression.
(4) The United States will
be well on the way to losing
control of the United Nations,
certainly if it attempts \o buck
the anti-colonial and nevtral-
ist elements. The fact that fifty-two of the sixty members
voted for the membership deal,
despite United States grumbling, shows which way the
wind is blowing.
These developments, of
course, will be extremely unpalatable to most Americans.
Yet there are clear signs that
the day is coming when the
United States will be on the
losing side of many General
Assembly votes. For example,
the seating of Chinese Communist delegates cannot be
more than a year or two away,
whatever the Nationalists do
about the membership deal.
However, all these developments were quite advanced before the idea for the membership deal was put forward by
Canada. If the United States
really did not like it, it should
have done something about it
long ago.
Anyhow, there is much to be
said for the concept of the
United Nations that is now
evolving. Certainly it has much
better prospects for the long
pull than the super-NATO that
the United States has tried—
and failed—to produce. ,.
Walter Lippmann has pointed out that it is supremely
difficult to convert an organization that represents all the
world's governments, and all
its ideologies, into an instrument of collective security. The
majority of the delegates clearly prefer an organization that
will simply act as a mirror of
the world today. Thisjwill give
the United Nations "a much
smaller role to play, but since
that is the way the other members want it, the United States
has no choice but to go along.

Govan Predicts CCF
Win In City Centre
"The CCF is through in Vancouver Centre," says campus
Conservative President Phil Govan who predicts a Social
Credit-Conservative fight in the January 9 provincial by-
Members of the campus club
have been working in committee
rooms, canvassing and offering
cars for what they feel will be
"a neck and neck race" between Conservative Douglas
Jung and Social Creditor Les
"In two and a half hours canvassing I did not find one supporter for CCF candidate, Mrs.
Dorothy Steeves," the Conservative leader said.
Govan added that the Conservative candidate was uniting
party factions. According to Gc-
van, Jung is such a strong candidate that Mayor Fred Hume
was afraid to accept the Liberal
nomination and Premier Bennett and half the provincial cabinet will enter the campaign for
Social Credit.
Campus Liberals—although no
Liberal is nominated — will
"work for the defeat of Social
Credit" according to club President Darrell Anderson.
CCF club President Bill Mar-
chak feels the Vancouver Centre CCF organization "can
handle the job" and campus Social Creditors will be "too busy
with coming Mock Parliaments"
to enter the campaign, according
to President Mel Smith.
Jim MacFarlan, 19, resident
of Vancouver Centre says: "I'm
going to vote for LPP candidate
Jack Gillete." The campus LPP
chief would not divulge party
plans in the by-election made necessary by the sudden death of
MLA George Moxham of the
government party.

Raven May
Fold This
Raven, UBC's new literary
magazine, may be forced to
cease publication this term because of the low sales of the
first two editions said Stan
Beck, Editor-in-Chief of the publications board today.
Originally, the third and
fourth editions of the new quarterly were scheduled to be published during the spring term.
The first edition came out in
September, the second in December.
However, 500 of the December edition's 1200 copies are
still unsold, and unless most of
these are disposed of within the
next two weeks it is "extremely
doubtful" if a new Raven would
appear this term.
Beck said the magazine would
"probably continue" publications in the 1956-57 school year,
"if it is completely subsidized."
Raven Editor Michael Ames
said some material has already
been gathered for a proposed
March edition. He said Raven
would be ready to publish by
the beginning of February, if
money is available.
"U is quite evident, though,"
he said, "that 5600 students and
700 faculty members do not
want even as few as 1200 copies
of the kind of magazine we
have been putting out.
"We might as well admit it,"
he said, "we failed."
Raven is on sale in the AMS
office and the Quad Book Store,
twenty-five cents a copy. No
advertising campaign is being
planned, Ames said. "If people
do not want Raven then it
should not be forced upon them,
like some cheap tooth paste or
a pancake mix."   •

NFCUS Condemned
By Campus Liberals
Campus Liberal club Thursday unanimously condemned
NFCUS for sponsoring political speakers.
Liberals—"infuriated" over
the recent NFCUS-sponsored
"political" speech of B.C. Attorney-general Robert Bonner
plan an all out campaign to
crush NFCUS.
Liberal MLA's, MP's, and
Senators will be asked to boycott NFCUS public meetings.
Motion condemning the
local branch of the national
student federation was presented by Vice-president Derek Mason, seconded by Treasurer Isy Wolfe.
President Darrell Anderson
said further action will be
taken against NFCUS. He did
not elaborate.
"This motion will start the
ball rolling," he said.  "From
now on the Liberal Club will
continue to press for the collapse of NFCUS."
Resentment arose when
"the gigantic NFCUS machine" sponsored by the Attorney-general in a well publicized talk in the series "The
Canada We Live In." Bonner,
reportedly, ignbred his assigned topic and "ground the
axe for Social Credit's case
against the Federal Government."
"If politicians want to make
political speeches they should

Engineers Need To

Tentative plans to broaden the mental horizons of Engineers chained to their slide rules, were announced Wednesday

program would be a series of 12
periods. A further enhancement

can get underway early this

No Through Roads For
UBC Scab' Posties
The last edition of a vile
rag I read, called the Ubyssey,
contained a cartoon by Magi
which depicted a forlorn student with a sack of mail on
his back, staggering up a
North Shore mountain, pursued by a savage dog, and
drenched by torrential rains.
"Ho, Ho," I said to myself,
"this exaggerates for humourous effect. However, I worked
at the post office over the
holidays, and I am now laughing on the other side of my
The first morning I arrived
at the post office, and was introduced to Bill Iggins, an
English gentleman who has
been delivering the mail for
forty of his sixty odd years,
and who was to show me the
We took three busses across
town, and three more in various directions, finally ending
up near to where we started.
"What were all the busses
for?" I asked. "We're being
paid by the 'our ain't we?"
was tiie reply.
Our route covered an amazing number of crescents, "No
through Roads", and dead
ends, laid out in an exact
replica of the great maze at
Hampden Court.
The district was a government housing project and the
homes had been rented only
to war veterans who had married English War Brides,
raised three or more kids, and
kept a savage dog.
The contractor who built
the houses had an unreasonable dislike for postmen,
which dates back to the time
when his favourite dog bit
one and died of food poisoning.
Obsessed by his hatred of
mailmen he bought a large
stock of trick letter boxes,
honed the flaps to razor sharpness and installed them in all
his houses.
Bill Iggins showed me the
exact way to hold my bundle
of letters. "I've been a 'olding
of letters for forty years, I
'ave," he told me. Later he
showed me the exact way to
insert letters into anti-personnel letter boxes. "I've been
insertin' letters into letter
boxes for Gawd knows 'ow
many years," he saici.
He took the even side of
the road and I took the odd.
At the beginning of each
block he called out to me the
number of each house for
which I had a letter. "There's
a parcel there for number
sixty-five's nephew what came
to no good in Safamerica."
By the middle of the morning I was beginning to wish
Mr. Iggins very thoroughly
dead. It began to snow, and
the wind came up. I was bitten by three dogs with Hydrophobia,  and my  hands  were
gashed by sabre toothed letter boxes. "I've been deliver-
in' of mail come rain, sunshine
or snow for forty years," said
Mr. Iggins cheerfully.
The next day we.were
joined by an engineering student called George, who was
a sex fiend and over fond of
liquor. I again took the odd
side of the street and George
took the even. Bill 'Iggins
walked down the centre of
the road munching sandwiches, and drinking coffee
from a large economy-size
thermos flask, alternately
shouting encouragement and
directions to both of us. "Nah!
Nah! boys. 'Old 'em the way
what I told yer. Easy does it."
At the end of the day our
instructor said admiringly to
George, "I reckon they learn
yer proper at that there UBC.
You've got natural talent.
With a couple of year's practice you could be as good as
what I am."
On the third day Bill Iggins
stayed inside to sort the
mail, and George and I soloed.
When we set off at eight in
the morning it was bitterly
cold and a gale was blowing
from the North. We were
staggering under huge bundles
of Her Majesty's mail. I wish
Her Majesty wouldn't send so
many Christmas cards.
About half way along the
route a door was opened for
me by a woman whc$e hair
curlers, ragged dressing gown
and greasy slippers proclaimed
her to be a war bride picked
up by her clean-living Canadian husband somewhere in
London's naughty square mile
of vice.
She was using an old copy
of the "Daily Mirror" which
held a huge pile of fried
chips, which she plucked at
delicately with uncut fingernails throughout our conversation. The tantalizing smell
of rancid cooking fat and
Heinz vinegar was wafted into my face, together with the
usual smells of over - boiled
cabbage and babies' napkins,
" 'ere Sonney Jim," she said .
in dulcet tones, " 'ave yer got
any letters for me from England?"
'I've got a mailbag full of
the things," I replied enviously eyeing the newspaper and
its contents.
"Come again,'' she said, "I
can't make 'cad or tail of your
Canadian   accent.   What   are
you:  a DP   or sumfing?"
"I said  not  arf I  'avn't arf

Board of British Columbia.

We flnay be vile but at least
we get the rag out,

"Oh, why didn't you say so
in the first place." I gave up.
Further down the road I
walked across somebody's
well-kept lawn and found myself with twenty letters to
stuff into a very small letter
box. On the other side of the
door was a savage dog which
went into paroxysms of rage
at my approach, I put the letters through one at a time,
waited till he had a good grip,
and gave a pull.
I had ruined about half the
cards that way when I was
interrupted in my peaceful
amusement by the owner of
the house. This fellow stood
over six feet tall, and was
wearing a pair of "Union-
made in B.C." jeans and a
heavy "Union made in B.C."
workshirt. On his chest was
an enormous badge which
said "United Rocksmashers
and Crushers of America" and
tattoed on his arm was a heart
with the inscription "I love
T-M B--K."
All this I took in one fleeting glance before he kicked
me into the road and called
me a s.o.b. He was muttering
something about "Scabs, working for eighty-five cents an
hour. Undermining the workers standard of living. Comes
the revolution." Picking myself up from the road, I said
with icy dignity "Sticks and
stones may break my bones,
but names will never hurt
me." Then I ran.
About this time I started
having trouble with George.
It appears that he has a way
with war brides and they kept
asking him in for drinks. This
coupled with the hip flask he
was carrying was beginning
to have its effect. I first suspected something was wrong
when he started delivering his
letters on my side of the
street, because he said it was
sheltered from the wind.
I didn't like to interfere but
when he started delivering on
a side street that wasn't on
our route I protested. "Look,"
he said, "We never give these
people any mail. The others
won't miss a few letters." I
had a drink from the hip
flask and began to sec his
I decided to straighten
things out by delivering my
mail to the houses George had
missed. The numbers didn't
match so I averaged it out at
three letters to a house. Whenever I came to a place with a
decent sized letter box I gave
them an extra letter ;is a

could detect a distinct spirit
of Christmas in the air. People

how Christmas comes suddenly like that. Architects

USC Investigates
Parking Facilities
Are students-getting too many parking tickets? Are campus
parking facilities adequate?
These are some of the problems facing a committee set up
by council to investigate UBC parking.   •
Undergraduate Societies
chairman Dave Hemphill has
been appointed to carry out a
complete parking survey and
make recommendations to council.
Special problem facing Hemphill is the probability that the
Education building will be constructed on a corner of the main
campus parking lot. More space
is urgently required. Campus
enrollment will jump to 7500
next term, increasing .demand
for parking facilities.
Hemphill's survey will also
try to determine whether space
allotted to faculty drivers is
adequate. He hopes to put his
recommendations into effect
"immediately" after the survey
is completed.
First meeting of the parking
investigation committee will be
held Monday noon in the Brock

Jayvees Need Double
Win; Play Leafs, CFUN
UBC Jayvees, currently in
last place in the City Sr. "A"
League standings, open their
second half of the schedule tonight at 7:00 with a game
against the third place Vancouver Cloverleafs. Eilers and Sea-
Funs will fight for top position
in the league in the feature
game at King Ed Gym.
On Saturday, Cloverleafs will
go against Cloverdale and at
8:30 at King Ed, Sea-Funs will
take on the youthful varsity
team. Also on Saturday, Eilers
Jewellers travel to Alberni to
take on the Canadian champs
in a game which will feature
hustle against experience.
Coach Dick Penn is holidaying
in Hawaii and assistant coach
Buz Hudson is faced with the
problem of picking up the two
needed victories. Hudson said
the team is against the wall and
they are faced with the possibility of being eliminated from
the playoffs If they do not attend practices and make half an
attempt to at least look like
basketball players.
To add to their troubles, the
JV's lost forwards Gordie May
and Ted Saunders. Saunders,
the teams' high scorer, was
called up by coach Jack Pom-
frett to play for the Birds while
Gordie May has dropped out of
university. However the Junior
Birds are hopeful that they will
receive a player in exchange
for Saunders.
TOP MAN on the bench for
Pacific Lutheran, who meet
the Birds Monday, is reserve
forward and center Dennis
Ross. The Gladiators come to
town with an impressive six-
game winning streak.

Well, here we are back at the old stand, and a Happy Ne|
Year to you. Somehow, spring of the New Year has always bee|
kinder to U,BC athletics than the fall of the old one, with ov
rugger,  basketball,  soccer,   rowing,   tennis,  track,   golf   ar
swimming victories all helping to heal the wounds of anotlu
mediocre grid season. We don't have so many to heal this yea
but it would be nice to replace football losses with an Olympj
bound hoop squad to go with our crew, and with some Worf
Cup rugger champs.
It is football that once again is the big news from
athletic office. In a stunning blow to our Canadian grid compj
tition comes word that McGill University has withdrawn froj
Paraplegic Bowl competition. McGill claimed they were una!
to find a sponsor for the game but in the opinon of UBC officU
it was just the out McGill has been looking for. Like sqr
of the other eastern colleges, McGill felt they had nothing
win and everything to lose against UBC. A close game
loss to UBC does not do much for the reputation of a collej
in the east, where UBC is known only as the perennial docl
mat in its league. So, as of this moment the Paraplegic BO|
is off, gone the way of the ill-fated East-West game.
Put unlike the East-West tilt, the Paraplegic Bowl will
be off for long if current negotiations are successfully ct
pleted, which seems to be the way they are headed. The tettj
tive replacement and certainly no come-down from Met
are another eastern college team, who have shown defii
interest in such a series with the Gnupmen, and which
are not at liberty to disclose.
Much will be lost in UBC athletes and especially foot*
if the Paraplegic Bowl is discontinued. Besides being a strt
tie between east and west and what we hope will be a foj
runner to further Canadian intercollegiate athletic events,!
was by far UBC's biggest event of the year from a spectaj
and financial standpoint. We trust athletic director Bus Phillj
will not let us down.
Holiday Review
UBC "sportlight" had its bright and dim spots during
exam and holiday season; a bright looking football future
a dim showing as regards the basketball teams.
During the week of Christ-
mns exams, coach Frank Gnup
held a meeting for all those
interested in playing football.
Forty two turned up at the meeting and offered to take the oath
to stand-up and fight for "good
old UBC" and at the same time
show that Evergreen Conference
football should stay here. Gnup
said that with the remnants of
last year's team, a few of the
players from 4he undefeated Jayvee squad and any others who
show that they have guts, he
should have a team that will be
right in there fighting for top*
Meanwhile while "almost"
everybody stayed out all night
and slept all day, the Thunderbird basketball team was at
UBC's War Memorial gym practising up for their coming Conference schedule. But the needed
practice, in one way, seemed in
vain as a ten year winning
streak was snapped. On December 28, the Vancouver Cloverleafs beat the Birds 54-53, making it the first time in ten years
that a Senior "A" league team
has beat the Varsity basketball-
ers in annual Christmas season
competition. The following night
Eilers Jewelers made it a double
killing as they hustled to a 77-
65 win.
The Jayvees scored their first
win of the season during the
exam week as they split a two
game series with the Cloverdale
squad. The following week, the
Penmen suffered their sevei

and guard Jack Henwood have
both recently been declared eligible for the Birds and will see

John Gower who has recovered

Birds Meet
Royal Oaks
Varsity soccer team travels
to Central Park this Saturday
at 2 p.m. to take on third place
Royal Oaks in Mainland First
Division play.
On their last outing the hustling Birds edged past the Oaks
3-2, and will be looking for a
repeat this Saturday. Varsity is
unbeaten so far in league play
and they hope to continue this
healthy trend.
Varsity coach, Ed Luckett has
held several practices in the
past week. He indicated concern
over the long layoff due to the
holidays and the weather. However, Birds will be strengthened
by Sivert Erickson, who makes
his first appearance, and should
go well.
UBC Chiefs tangle with Nor-
quays on the campus Sunday

In the feature game, Varsity
tangles with Kats in the Stadium at 2:30 p.m. Second division action will see Braves and
Meralomas playing on the Aggie Field while Tomahawks
meet Blue Bombers at Connaught. Both contests start at
1:30 p.m. The fourth team, Redskins, drew a bye this week.
Braves, who won five games,
lost none, and amassed a total

Bowl game between a Canadian
team and a Commonwealth XV
at Brockton Oval last Monday.
Representing Varsity in the
"classic" were Ted Hunt, ,Mike
Chambers, John Mulberry,
Keith Sandilands, Bob Morley,
Bob Morford, Derick Vallis, and
last and least, Brave's coach
Max Howell. However, certain
unconfirmed sources report that
Max played well for an old
man, appearing to be much the
least hungover of a badly hung-
over Commonwealth squad. The
Canadians triumphed easily.
