House next Saturday, March
The Open House committee,
under chairman Jaques Barbeau, has been working for
over four months to produce
a giant publicity show for
UBC, with every department,
faculty, and club on the campus preparing exhibits.
Over eight thousand dollars
has been spent and hundreds
of students have participated
in making the production a
Open House is a triennial
affair designed to show the
people of Vancouver what students are doing and learning
at UBC.
An estimated fifty thousand
people will be guided all over
the campus, by seven hundred
student volunteers, to displays
ranging from popular underworld drugs in the Biology
building to techniques of lace-
making in the Home Economics building.
Visitors will not suffer
from boredom, as nothing has
been spared to provide an entertaining show from 10 a.m.
to 10 p.m.
Everyone is invited to attempt to confound the lie detector in the psychology department, to test his muscles
on the "try your strength"
machine in the electrical engineering building, or watch
the recording of brain waves
in  the Medicine huts.
Pharmacy department Is
planning "Ye Olde Apothecary Shoppe," a model of a
late eighteenth century chemist's shop complete with alchemist and mysterious medicine.
Law faculty will set up a
court room and legislature
scenes to show di fferent
phases of justice in action.
Campus clubs will create
a carnival atmosphere in the
Field House when they set
up displays similar to those
of the annual Clubs Day.
Chinese Varsity Club and
the Far Eastern Societies will
serve tea in an Oriental teahouse, and Oance Club members will offer free Mambo instruction.
Radsoc, operating from its
south Brock studio, will be
broadcasting over local radio
stations thrbughout the afternoon   and   evening.
Refreshments will be served at various spots on the campus set up particularly for
Open House Day. Tea rooms
will be located at most popular locations in all faculty
sections, as well as at the
Cafeteria, Campus Cupboard,
Bus-Stop,  and Brock Hall.
Get ready to flash those pearlies, kiddies, 'cause next
week, you, you and even you, are going to be a host.
When those people from "downtown" flock to the ivy
walls, don't just act "normal," don't run and hide, but
make like the "pepsodent kicl," dazzle them with helpfulness and personality plus. Maybe they want to see the
atomic bomb display, maybe they want to visit the pig
barns, or maybe they just want to know where the jawn
is. Don't be shy, boy, speak up. After all, they're our
guests, you know.
High School Students
Arrive-Billets Needed
Delegates from as far «as Whitehorse High School in the
Yukon and as near as Lord Byng High just outside the University's gates, will journey to UBC next week for the Eight
Annual High- School Conference March 4th and 5th.
More   than   100   high   school. :
students will be guests of the
University for the two day Conference which is being held in
conjunction   with   Open   House.
The large number of1 delegates has created a housing
problem. Anyone willing to
billet a delegate for three
nights and provide breakfasts
is asked to contact the Conference committee in Brock Hall.
For two days the students will
investigate every facet ot life i
on the campus in the hope that
they will be able to give an accurate and informative picture
to their respective schools when
they return.

University Week begins Monday.
Premier Bennett gave University Week the official government sanction Thursday when he proclaimed the event in
a special order-in-council.
The event is held only once
every three years. Its purpose
is to acquaint British Columbians with their university, and
to demonstrate the services
which the university renders to
the province, to Canada, and to
the world.
Primarily a public relations
undertaking, university week
is being given an elaborate publicity throughout British Columbia.
Two downtown newspapers
have published special editions
of the Ubyssey, produced by
the Open House Committee, to
publicize the event.
In addition, thousands of red
and grey Open House posters
have been hung, and university
displays have been placed in
many downtown store windows.
Arid next week, students clad
in academic caps and gowns will
hand out Open House invitations

It is our earnest hope thut fierce indignation was the
reaction of every UBC student—and faculty member—who
learned that the University of Washington has banned Dr.
J. Robert Oppehheimer's appearance as a guest lecturer.
If Dr. Oppenheimer were an economist and a communist, the action would have been deplorable.
But tt was disgraceful. Dk\ Oppenheimer is not a
communist, nor is he an economist. He is an extremely able
physicist, and his appointment to the lectureship was recommended by the university's physics department.
The veto of this recommendation by U. W. President
Henry Schmitz in itself would not have been too surprsing
considering the tension and atmosphere of today. What is so
exasperating is that the action was tolerated. It brought
nothing even faintly resembling a storm of protest.
A petition was started, but dropped in favour of a gentlemanly delegation.
Out of an enrollment of about 20,000, only 400 students
were expected to participate in a march on the office of the
state governor. Then, only 29 showed' up. Three of them actually saw the governor—for five minutes.
The student newspaper polled professors, and about the
harshest protest it received was an admission that the whole
affair was an unhappy situation.
The newspaper itself hid under a rock. There were no
Worse, the paper's Associate Editor wrote a fourteen
inch, front page masterpiece of rationalization, lauding
Schmitz as something, akin to God. How did it do it? By
pointing out that Schmitz had pledged to maintain the university's integrity when he assumed office, and then quoting
him as saying, "You bet I will" when asked if he would keep
his pledge.
It was an incredible article. The entire affair was incredible.
How could the mind of man become so cowed, so subverted, in the very place that has been considered for centuries the stronghold of his spiritual and intellectual integrity?
No warning could be graver.

I DON'T KNOW if any of you have ever noticed the way
athletes walk. But you can toll, just by watching .one of them
amble along, what ho is like.
More than that, an athlete's mood of live minute can easily
be discerned from the swing of his disgustingly well-oiled hips.
I once knew an athlete by the name of Hugo, and ho had
mastered the art of sportsmanlike disgust.
Hugo and I just didn't get along. In the first place, I inadvertantly brushed His left t>lbow early in our school years—
trom that day on wo were sworn enemies.
An Enduring Soul
There is nothing a really successful athlete like Hugo hates,
more than accidental jostling. On the playing field its excuseable,
because after all, what is thc object in playing if it's not to
maim the opposition?
But on city streets, at assemblies, and in crowded corridors,
to step on an athlete's toe is to court death.
Well, this pugnacity was ingrained in Hugo during his formative years. His simple, brutish soul was taught to endure the
knocks of competitive sport.
If you're hurt shut up about it, they told him—then firs't
chance, cripple the SOB. a
But all in all Hugo was frustrated. The desire for revenge
was strong. He was as pent up as an unlicensed Wolfhound.
And it was idiots like myself, who had the misfortune to
trip over one of his size elevens, that functioned as Hugo's
safety valve.
When Hugo saw me coming he would quicken his pace,
throw back his shofllders, and put that basketball-player spring
in his step. When assuming this attitude Hugo virtually bubbled
Not o Dislike for Athletics ...
He used to look at me, eyelids sprawled lazily over the
sockets, while his lower lip did nip-ups. Sort of like when a
Senior A man looks at a Junior Division animal.
After three years of this silent hatred my banjo-stringed
nerves were playing Tiger Rag" on my sensitivities. I had
learned how to hate and I was no pacifist.

I began periodically rilling his locker. I stole and smashed

But gradually Hugo caught on. His normally vacuous face
was beginning to light up. His brain, usually waist-deep in the
profundities of the T-I'oriuaiton, was beginning to come to.
I had outsmarted him for a while. "Now lo outrun him,"
was my first reaction to ihe awakening. I ear. look back on it
all as a joke now but I would leel a little better if I could get

Editor, The Ubyssey:
In scanning the results of the
sports reiferendum, namely,
two to one egainst entry in the
Canadian league, I cannot help
remarking that the M.A.A.
members were appallingly
short-sighted in their announcement that "rather than lower
the calibre to win games we
should raise our calibre to win
games" by remaining in the
Evergreen Conference.
I venture to say that those
same 500 people who voted
yes in the referendum had
taken a pretty objective view
of the problem before they
voted — and they realized that
as an Evergreen member UBC
will only continue to lose
games because the U.S. varsity
athletic system rests primarily
on athletic scholarships which
attract sport 'geniuses.'
With this realization probably went the longer run view

that UBC spirit or sports enthusiasm will continue to decline so long as our major
sports: football, basketball, are
played in such a professional
But those students with a
sparse or no interest in sports,
after observing the stand of the
athletes themselves naturally
would vote no.
It is this lack of facing the
facts by the M.A.A. coupled
with . their short-sightedness
with respect to U.B.C. spirit
that caused tlefeat of the referendum.
In summary, granted the calibre of play will not be as
high in the Canadian League
but let us recall that we are
not equipped for such calibre
— we are in the amateur class
and not in the professional
or sports 'genius' class. Let
us be progressive and try the
scheme for a year.
One may retort to this argument that minor sports in
UBC, e.g., swimming, will lose
out/ through a Change to the
new set-up. My answer to this
would be to quote the article
in The Ubyssey by R. J. Phillips, athletic director of our
university, who In an enlightened fashion states that playing
in both conferences is not at
at all impossible.
We could play the minor
sports in the Evergreen
fjeague, and basketball and

Lectures, an obsolete form
of education, are' attended
when* they don't conflict

there seems to be something
misting at UBC. Perhaps we
should turn to an examination of the word "University" fer en answer to this
missing link.
Most dictionaries mention
education in the higher
branches of learning as part
of the meaning of university.
To this I would add an idea
frpm Alfred North Whitehead,
found in a book, "The Dialogues of A. N. Whitehead."
When questioned why he
still held open house for students each week although approaching his eightieth year.
Whitehead stated that education is an ever-ending process
and can be a mutual increase
of scope and knowledge on the
part of student AND teacher
through constant discussion.
It seems to me that White
head has pointed out the phase
of education where UBC has
fallen down. And this Is not
entirely thc fault of the student. It would seem that students are a means to an end
for the professor and that
classes are a means to an end
for   the  studeni.
It has been decreed that
the professor shall stand in
front of a given number of
classes for fifty-two minutes
telling the student who must
by decree attend seven-
eights of these lectures, exactly what his conception of
his particular brand of reality is.
After these periods the student gratefully rushes off to
his club; the professor gratefully rushes off to whatever
professors gratefully rush off

President Refuses
To Reconsider Ban
SEATTLE—Dr. Henry Schmitz .president of the University of Washington refused to reconsider his decision to ban
atomic scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer from speaking on the
alter Raleigh
Seattle campus. *
Whin he was confronted with
the following statements made
by him during his inaugural
address a year ago, however, he
said they were Still accurate.
"You bet I'll stand by this,"
he said. #
It has been a tradition of
this university from the very
be^Viming that its doors are
open to any youth, without respect of his economic status, race,
color, or creed. This is one'of
the best traditions of the American university."
Dr. Barnett Savery, chairman
of the% UBC philosophy department, seid yesterday that th%
president's' decision was "an
unfortunate infringement upon
the freedom in Amrican universities" and that it was probably
a result of, "conservative political hysteria."
Dr. Oppenheimer recently
underwent questioning by the
Atomic Energy Commission and
was denied security clearance
because of his relations with persons of "doubtful loyalty."
Officials at the University of
Oregon say they have no intention of cancelling a series of
lectures to be given there by
Dr. Oppenheimer in April. The
chancellor said that there was
no doubt as to his professional
standing as a competent physicist.
A professor at the University
of Washington, however, said
that "The University of Washington hasn't allowed other controversial figures to appear on
campus in the past."

The English writer A. P. Herbert once wrote a cheque on a
bottle of brandy and sent it to
be cashed at his bank, Herbert's idea was to show what
nonsense banks and cheques aro.
Also, how difficult it is to make
any law that cannot be turned
to nonsense. The bank cashed
the cheque, and when it return
ed through the Clearing House,
the brandy was intact. The bank
didn't see the point of the joke,
but   it  understood  its duty.
There's no record of any Canadian bank cashing bottle cheques, but last year one of our
competitors honoured a cheque
written on a hard boiled egg. If
you're an egg cheque fan, we'd
be glad to supply the name of
the bank. However, if you normally deal with the 'Royal' don't
think us a sourpuss if we ask
you to use the conventional
cheque form. Our egg storage
facilities are inadequate. In all
oilier respects, though. UBC people seem to find Royal Bank
services quite satisfactory. There
are 32 branches in Vancouver
and district all of whom welcome students' accounts. Tiie

The opposition from "Stateside" is not particularly tall but
very fast. They usually operate
the fast break or single post
options. To set up these plays,
Central has a pair of fast adept
ball handlers in their guards;
Heacox and Myers. They also
have a very good pivot man.
Though UBC's record has not
been too impressive it is interesting to note that in six of their
losses, they have outscored the
opponents in the field goal department but have lost out at
the foul line.
This has been especially apparent in the last couple of
road trips where an unusually
high amount of fouls has been
called against Varsity while the
opposition's sheet has been kept
comparatively clean.
Saturday night; well, anyone
who has watched a home game
will tell you what you can expect from the refereeing here.
Anyway, the Birds will at least
be on their own floor.
So remember, for the last
conference game, and the last
home game of the 1954-55 basketball season come out to the
Glass Palace Saturday night.
There is a high school prelim,
featuring two lotal powerhouses,
Vancouver College and Gladstone, at 6:45 and the Varsity
