Language and Literature at the

outlined the main problems or
student life In India In his lecture
on "Students in the New India."
He stressed again and again
what he thought was the need for
religious training in colleges and
universities, maintaining that India students with no faith invariably entered the Communist
Pagy soon after graduation.
David gave a short history of
education ln India, during which
he attacked the British influence
which at one time trained students
in universities and then offered
them positions as mere clerks when
they graduated.
According to Professor David,
there are now 30 universities and
ii.'>0 colleges in India. He boasted
that in India 25. percent of high
school students continue their
studies in university as compared
with 10 percent in B.C.
He-tttated that economic* and
political science were the most
popular courses at Indian unlvers
ities, with the main emphasis on
Arts courses. "Arts does not bake
any bread, it makes good men and
women," he said.

Student Exchange
Today, perhaps more than ever before, a
world university student service is needed.
• The UfeC International Students' Service has
in the p»st and in the present been trying to
fulfil this need. One of the means of International understanding among nations is student exchange. This project has been the
itlain field of activity of the Committee on
this campus.
This year UBC has exchange students from
Asia and Europe—namely from Japan and
Germany. It is interesting to note that both
these countries were, not long ago, at war
With Canada. Today it is our aim to show the
youth of these countries our way of living
and to gain for ourselves a better understanding of their problems^ What better way than
to exchange our university students for theirs.
Sdth parties to the arrangement have the
identical benefit of first hand knowledge of
each others present conditions and needs.

years yet; at least not up to the time they
decide whether Molotov's departure from the

Dear Sir:
The New York Times recently
reported that a certain chapter of
the fraternity, Phi Delta Theta,
is to be suspended for approving
the pledging of a Jewish student.
Phi Delta Theta's constitution, It
seems, restricts membership to

If members of* this nnd other
'fraternities at iriiC have anything to be ashamed of, it Is
certainly their halfsecret policy
or excluding "mlnoi-lty groups."
In Canada—supposedly a paragon
of democratic countries—it not
only discourages one to discover
this liolicy of exclusion among
many of the future leaders of
the nation. It also frightens one.
The policy is altogether worthy
or Hitlerites. Is it worthy, however, or ratlor.al students w-Wo
profess to belong to a* freedom

Exchange Student
Reports On Canada
Ulrich Stipke is an exchange student from Hamburg who
is doing post-graduate work in International Studies here.
The first and  most  striking Im- •
presslon offering itself to a European  who arrives In Canada from
the old continentals obviously the
calmness   and   lack   of  tension   In
Tween ClassesllSS Plans
political  uf fairs.
Fortunately there is no Iron Cur-
Sain nrbitiarily dividing the Marl-
times from British Columbia, with
all Its lurking lurid perils behind
it; no latent fear from the nightmare of dictatorship, nor the
scenery of bombed and destroyed
cities which are indicative of our
wrecked old continent. Accordingly, this absolutely different political  climate.
iYJou have), Nevertheless, yot^r
own troublesome problems in domestic affairs. The antagonism be
tween French-Canadians and English dependents reveals to me that
it is not only the Scotch or the
Bavarians who appear always to
he "on the very edge of separation" from the rest of the community. Historians, however, are
Inclined to criticise the over
emphasis ou this factor In Canadian history.
The time has pessed when Canada had been a subordinate appendix of the British Kmplre. The
growt hto nationhood, tbe development, of political autonomy, prl
h.'irily in external affairs, has
reached a stage which places Can-
rtda as a middle power right Into
the turmoil of our strained world
It destroys the short-lived iso
luHwtlat dream of Canada's being
"a fireproof house" and Imposes
political responsibilities on till-
coHltti-V like obligations of col
lecllve security under the auspices
of tile North Atlantic Pact which
Canada had been a long time reluctant to assume,
The    pre-eminent    role    Canada
has   been   playing #in   Anglo-American     relations     since     the     early
twenties,  namely  that  of an   interpreter   between   the   I'nited   Slates |
and     the     llritish     Commonwealth
; nil   which  she   is  destined   to   play
w ilhin     the     recently     established ;
North     \llantic    <   immunity    is    a
fact   which  is ipait   from govern   j
ment   circle.; not   duly   realized j
and    recognized    by   many   Canadians.
There is a gap in the political
conscience of Canada. It. causes
a feeling of admiration to a F.uro-
' pean to see Canadians devclopliu:
Ibbt-ir cultural, social and political
life on tle-ir own individual lines.
The frequently heard argument:
"We are North American.-; hut not
Americans'' confirms to me that
"Caiiadianism" means the cultural-
l.oliticiil I ask to maintain i-lost
connection  Willi   Kurope.
There is one feature In Canada's
jiolitical conscience which differs'
from fhe present Kuropean feeling:
the over-emphasis o,i national
sovereignty and autonomy, which
is of course explicable by Can
ada's recent consfifiitlor.il evolution within the Commonwealth;
bui which iu Kurope should be
preserved in the historic museums
rather than  in  the  Foreign Offices.

taken by UBC. In addition to n
first and second place in the diving competition. Ken Doolan and

On the whole the boys swam an
excellent meet and really went all
out to make the met the success
It was. Missing the Cup by two
points was a little disappointing
hut Coach Doug Whittle has no
complaints and says the meet was
a well fought one and a fair one
all the way.
Nine meets are already ln the

to Oregon. Next year the lineup
will look somewhat different with
the absence of Don Sniythe, Il^es

Oh Woe Is Poor Ole Mo
His learn Just Won't Go
In case you hadn't heard, Mo Slutsky's volleyball
outfit dropped three straight games to University of Washington in the War Memorial gym last week.
It's hard to make a volleyball game sound exciting in
print' unless you borr*ow some of Cecil B. DeMille's adjectives, but UBC gave the Huskies a fight.
Playing for Birds were Ron Stuart, Rtfy Fee, Don
Smythe, Pat Harmon, Elwood Flather, Walt Manning, Kurt
Ebner, Bruce Williams and Bill Arnold.
On March 21 Mighty Mo and His Men will compete in
a volleyball tournament at the gym with two YMCA teams
and a terrific squad from Chilliwack.
The Chilliwack Chargers will undoubtedly run away
