him from the cold, steel-floored

thereby fall into the hands of thc

And all because oC a reportedly

UBC 'Gentlemen's Agreement7
A good many fraternity members at UBC
have suffered through the quiet agony of a
"ding session" and listened to a Greek brother,
in that self-conscious way of discrimination,
say: "Well, yes, George is a nice guy all right,
I wouldn't want to say anything against him,
but you know he is Jewish."
Many more have never faced the embarrassment of open bigotry because fraternity
discrimination at UBC is, simply and frankly,
an accepted code seldom discussed and seldom   breached.
With a couple of notable and laudable
exceptions, UBC fraternities arrange themselves neatly on one side of the fence or tho
other and everyone passively "understands '
the system.
No one burns torches or overturns tombstones at UBC and perhaps for the sake of
still waters it is best not lo disturb the well-
established course.
It is difficult, however, nol to ask if a
university can truthfully fulfill its function
when its otherwise intelligent, educated students graduate into a world in which they
believe there is some natural and inviolate
division between men of different creeds.
Vancouver's Hastings Street business
men's clubs and all its private golf clubs
recognize this doctrine and so perhaps it is
only natural that young men should follow
the lead of the men they hope to emulate.
The easily-justified excuse of "Well, that's
the way things are done everyplace else" :s
neatly  torn  apart  by   Dr.   Charles  Woolsey
Cole, president of Amherst College.
"Institutions of learning ought to pick
and choose the best parts of our culture, not
thc worst," President Cole says in a recent
article which the intelligently liberal Collier's
Magaznie devoted to what it called the fraternity  "crisis."
"College students ought to set the pace,
hc declared. If they make enough headway
with the democratic idea, the country clubs
and business clubs will come along later."
Luckily, UBC fraternities have had a
happy history on the campus, unmarred by
unfortunate "incidents." Their efforts in organizing flood relief benefits this year and
their well-known charity Mardi Gras are
recognized as projects of inestimable value
both to the community and to the university.
Because they are ready-organized groups, no
one else could shoulder these tasks and
through their work they have become generally respected on the campus and in the
But still there is the lingering doubt that
fraternities are enscribing a channel of thought
that ought not to be a part of a university
education. It is a problem with which fraternities themselves, and no one else, must deal.
It is not being "anti-fraternity" to point out
the problem and there is not immediate
danger in the status quo. But in the alternatives lie opportunities for courage, intelligence and leadership which seem more rightly
to fall within the purposes of a university,

legged anthropoids who call themselves thc

years ago and promises to remain as one of

letters to the editor
The  Daily  Ubyssey:
Sir—This is one letter you are
SURE  to  print.
The Friday, Jan. 7 issue of the
Daily Ubyssey was good journalism
'relative to your previous issues)
and I hope it serves as a model for
the   fui'ure.
Both the editorials were bright
and timely. The one about UBC's
'Open House" event—with its quaint
phrase "the ivory curtail'1" wa.s
damn  good.
Jim Banham's movie review seemed   intelligent   and   worth   while   ia
rare quality in Ubyssey signed
columns) and Gordon Dowding's
sports page cartoon showed touches
ol sophistication which made it
,,ood art. There were lots of entertaining  signboard   notices.
The news stories were well-written anrl well handled. The headlines were good (although I agree
with D'Arcy Finn, one of the CUP
contest   judges,   that   they   arc   too
Even misprints and jumbled typ-
ograhpy were less conspicuous than
iiMial. There were a couple of bad
eii'ors in fart: The Thunderbird
totem  pole was the gift of Mr.  and
Mrs. Ted Neel, who carved it. NOT
the gift of Chief Billy Scow, who
presented it; M. E. Nichols is a
former managing director, not managing editor, of The Daily Province.
The women's page columns, "The
Caf Crowd" and "Fashion Notes"
sc em to be mostly guff—they could
be half as long with no reduction
in information or entertainment.
But keep it up, pubsters. Let's
have bright, critical editorials, factual news-stories, and less sloppy
sensationalism. And lots of let'ters
to the editor—not all like this one
4th  Arts.
ONE of the officials of the Student   Progressive-Conservative
Club is frustrated—by a set of
swinging doors that don't swing.
Indeed hc is so frustrated by these
non-swinging doors that he ha.s
poured his troubles upon the shoulders of this already trouble-beset
columnist'. An unusual recourse
surely for an arch Tory to cry upon
the shoulders of a known revolutionary of thc darkest crimson.
Nonetheless in the true spirit of
human brotherhood we are willing
to forget past grievances and hereunder print the harried reactionary's epistle.
"The Brock Hall is a wo.idcrful
Huilcling. It is undoubtedly the finest building of its kind in Canada.
Hut why, oh why dees only one of
the .supposedly swinging doors
swing? Every day battered Coeds
and even more battered men (yes
girls, men sometimes open thc doors
for you) try to push their way out
or in through the door which doesn't  swing.
"This situation has been prevalent
ever since I saw the Block and
lucre seems to be no immediate
sign of improvement. Will tiie Students' Council do anything? Have
YOU asked them for anything
lately? I for one would be most
willing to have my name lead a
list of petitioners to see that more
numano practices were indulged in
bv   the   administration.
"Of late I have become exceedingly wary and approach the doors,
carefully inspect them both to see
which is the dirtiest (the dirtiest
one is i'he one ycu push) and then
slunk through quick like a rabbit.
I; woiks because as yet I have had
no need for the First Aid kit which
I  always carry."
Hidden behind the admirable self-
restraint of our reactionary's letter.
O uncountable readers, lies a grisly
i'\m\ unescapable fact — the poor
ihwarted devil was born in a saloon.
This, no doubt, will ccmc as a
great shock to those misguided
souls who have cherished the belief that all Tories are born in
country houses and raised in the
best schools—but empirical evidence
cannot   be   denied.
Obviously he has become so accustomed to the double swinging
doors that hc is quite unable to
adjust himself to the machinations
of Messrs, Grantham and Collins
which have resulted in one of Brock
doors   being   shut   fast   and   light.
SOMETHING must be done.
Can we, 0 uncountable readers,
permit the great white hope of
the Progressive-Conservative Party
to be subjected to this hideous
fiustration which may well bc one
ot the great budding political careers of our   nation?
We must, however, exercise the
ir,most care,
Messrs. Collins and Grantham, ty-
lants of Brock Hall, are known to
bc   desperate  characters.
Mr. Grantham is. officially, head
janitor of tlie Brock, and Mr. Collins is his assistant. But do not let
this innocent pair of titles deceive
\eu. Believe us, they are desperate.
ME. COLLINS has attempted to
have this columnist arrested
numberless times on charges
ranging from arson to breaking and
entering in connection with our
tireless effort's in the .Brock at unorthodox hours of the clay and night.
Our activities have, at all times,
b.-en perfectly innocent. Doubtless
Mi. Collins was trying to muzzle us.
Nonetheless, we must not be
daunted by even so desperate a
character as this, We must be brave.
Let    us    not    give    in until    our
esteemed     reactionary is     happy.
Neither   God   nor   man nor   beast
must  deter  us.
Both   doors   must   swing.
Europe Replies To Canada
by cliff
(Ed. Note: The author is one of a group
of UBC sludents who attended an International Student Service seminar in Germany
this summer. On coming hack, he introduced
thc idea of student-sponsored scholarships
i'or German students to UBC)
Many letters have come to me from
Europe because I sent to each of the members of the Summer Seminar in Germany
a copy of the Daily Ubyssey carrying news
ol our foreign scholarships. Since I feel these
loiters arc1 really addressed lo the students
who have undertaken to provide these scholarships. I am choosing' excerpts that give a
sampling i.i the feelings thai wc; have aroused,

Ival Id lers with Miss Lanning at the

|K'or n.joerge al Oslo, member of the
L\gian underground, who had seen two
comrades tortured by the Gestapo,
iie to our seminar at Ploen vowing
could never have any kindly feeling
( iiTtlian   people.
wa> ti wry ureal  experience indeed lo
together   wilh   you   Canadians,   and   1
.assure ymi that jmir keen inleresl, your
insatiable  curiosity,  and   your  firm  determination to form for yourself an objective pic-
lure of Europe and European conditions were
a very great inspiration to all of us. We from
the   ex-occupied    countries   profited   highly
from   meeting  our  former  enemies   in  your
presence.  You   brought   into  the  discussions
something of the integrity of distance, which
certainly made many things a lot easier. This
was the more valuable, because we are now
rapidly approaching thc day when the Germans will be our partners in a Western Union,  whether  this  union  will  be an alliance
of war or merely a necessary instrument of
economic    co-operation    in    rebuilding    the
strength  and health of the countries on the
western beach of Europe, Do you remember
how all our discussions of the European problem at  Ploen ended with the conclusion, that
a  Western  Union  was  the  only  remedy  for
ihe present evils-? In one sense we were then
ahead  of  public  spirit  in  general.  Maybe  it
was   ihe  coining  together  of  representatives
irom  so  many different  countries and  backgrounds and  Iheir fret1 and open discussions
can led on in a spirit  ol comradeship.
From Ilelga Timm, Secretary of the Social
Democratic Students of Western Germany,
who had spent time in England came this
letter on her return to Hamburg: "... I came
home to find that the prices have still increased, especially fruit and vegetables, electricity and gas, clothes and house equipment. You are still able to buy them in a
shop, but the normal wages of the workers
and little employees are in a terrible mispro-
portion to the prices. It is quite obvious that
these attempts of a liberal economic system
is impossible, as it is run from Frankfurt. And
this unsatisfactory struggle for the principle
conditions of life is the starting point for all
the other difficulties in political, social, moral
and family life. How easy was it in England,
where you usually can trust your neighbors.
The German people force and teach each
other lo be suspicious—or careful.
I must say that I am deeply touched by
these enormous difficulties and thi.s only very
small hopeful aspect for thc future."
From Raimund Beisenherz, student of
medicine and theology al Muenstor: "enthusiasm about this plan of bringing students from
countries concerned into an atmosphere which
will enable them to carry out a mission which
Europe needs badly unless the consequences
of developments as they go on, will end in a
■complete destruction of man-worthy exist-
ance ... the success of your plan will be
dependent upon two important factors . . .
firstly . . . within the nearest future . . .
scheme should begin ... so that students
concerned will have maximum chance of influencing endangered people . . secondly
make sure you have responsible people for
selecting those German students."
From Use Stahl, a pretty redhead from
Muenster: "thc Seminar i.s over, but the idesus
are still living in ourselves . . . learned at
Ploen that international understanding— in
which I did not believe before—could be a
fact, and I began to believe thai it would
be a fact one day."
From dark-eyed Lore Kudlek of Dussel-
dorf: "I myself have been deeply impressed
of all the new aspects we got at Ploen, and
a.s well of the resolution of your committee
and the active work of your studentship and
yours. A marvellous idea to give European
students the chance of studying your democratic life, your situations, and your institutions in order to reconstruct a peaceful and
democratic  world, Wednesday, January 12,  1949

J,   E,   Buchanan   and    the   board    of,
Both faculty members and
students have expressed themselves delighted with the latest
issue of the Thunderbird, UBC's
literary  magazine.
Dr. Roy Daniells, head of the Dept.
o' English, said: "Thi.s seems to me to
be a most pleasantly fresh and varied
number. I have been reading in it
with much pleasure. The format and
j;e!HTal impression of the pages arc
surpri.'-intdy close to what was possible in the days of more adequate
funds. I think it has been very well
Dr. Earle Birney, also of the English
Dept. shared this opinion, "with the
cx<. option of an atrocious poem by
Duke Scaldec. The general level is
as hi«h as ever; Jean Howarth's .story
ah lie is worth thc price of the magazine."
With usual philosophical caution,
Dr. Banict Savery, head of the
Philosophy Department, described il
a.1 "an interesting aesthetic experience."
Students, when questioned express-
(i1 themselves similarly. Len Dolto,

Out of UBC's Vwo defeats last
week came some very heartening
results. Defeats by the very nature
nt things are hard to take, but usually teach a worthwhile lesson.
These particular losses were effective in reducing a certain amount
of over-confidence which the boys
had built up.
Coach Frank Frederickson, who
knows enough psychology to make
the average person weep (or buy
insurance) gave the hockeyists a
thorough going-over so that they
arc now determined, and not overconfident, for tonight's tussle with
the ever improving Indians.
Rookie Centre
Frank has high praise for young
Clare Drake, the rookie centre, who
Ir. Frank's opinion will develop into
one of the best. Clare is full of
fight and has good hockey sense. He
does the right thing most of the
time (he is human though) and is
seldom responsible for a bad play.
For his size he is undoubtedly thc
most rugged forward on the club.
Despite this the opposition has taken a liking to him. Especially so
has Bus Zabrosky, a bruising Indian
rearguard who utilizes every opportunity to hold young Clare. This
show of amity often operates to
Clare's disadvantage for he seems
to spend lengthy intervals on the
seat of his trousers. Clare's greatest weakness seems to be in his
feet, or rather his inability in stay
on them. It has been suggested that
to overcome this difficulty, his
trouser seat be reinforced.
Reol Hustler
The whole of the line centred by
Drake has been operating with full
efficiency. Bob Lindsay, left wing,
is another rugged individual who is
a real hustler. In a recent contest
he missed several scoring opportunities, but has vowed to come through
in tonight's contest. Don Adams,
rookie goal-tender is a real "Lindsay-Booster" and he is willing to
bet almost anything that Bob comes
through tonight.
The best' news of the week is about
Bob Koch. He has settled down
. into operation and has scored 10
goals in the last four games, There
is every reason to believe that he
will continue this hot pace tor the
remainder of the season. Bob is a
pleasure i'o watch when he employs
his now famous "cleko". He has
been known to beat six opponents
en  one goalward  dash.
Defy Science
Tlie new "Hustling Hass" (Harrison) Young is also a pleasure to
watch. Hass has (assonance not
intended) developed the most unorthodox play of the century. He
carries the puck through the ent'ire
opposition, comes in on the goal-
tender and then, to everyone's surprise slips behind the net to give
the goalie a chance and tries to
defy science by scoring from that
position. He is a real team man
and is well liked, having many
friends and fraternity brothers.
Worthy of mention also is the
speed shown by Lloyd Torfason recently, His Icelandic background
seems to come out when lie is on
the ice. He is the team's top scorer.
owing particularly to his terrific
shot and speed.
Fred Andrews returns to the lineup tonight and will be a welcome
addition. After eight weeks his hand
should be healed sufficiently to
allow   a   few  goals.
Remember tonight's game against
the Indians at the Forum—8: 111).

In Victoria
Fly To Victoria
For Trophy Test
Varsity Rugby players will
take to the air for the first time
in this University's history
when the Thunderbird and
UBC squads fly to Victoria
The "Birds will formally open their
section of the McKechnie Cup series
when they clash with the capital
city's  Crimson  Tide   Iifteen.
.Second visiting scpiad. the UBC
team, will play a preliminary con-
tist with one of ill at city's College
outfits. The two teams leave Vancouver airport Saturday morning
and hit for the rugger field immediately   upon   arrival.
Win or no, the boys will again return to thcii- home town Saturday
evening  and  Sunday  respectively.
Extensive conditioning sessions
throughout the Christmas holidays
and to date have kept this university's  bids  in  top shape.
With the return of such stars as
Doug Reid, Miliary Wotherspoon, and
Dave Story to the ranks, coach Al
laithewaite i.s extremely confident cf
success in Victoria this weekend.
He is confident enough to expect
the coveted McKechnie Cup, emblematic of rugger supremacy, to once
again rest among the already acquired
trophies of UBC teams.
Laithewaite i.s not sure, however
of the prospective strength oi Victoria College ruggermen. With the
increase in strength of the UBC squad
though, a double win in the island
city thi.s weekend is practically a
sun1   thing.

Chiefs Travel
To Powell River
UBC Chiefs leave the campus on
Thursday to play an exhibition series
in Powell River against a local cage
club,  it was announced yesterday.

With this period of sub-freezing
weather still hovering over the lower

stadium grounds seemed a good idea.
dium, figuring to make some use of
Johnny Owens, manager of the stadium figuring to make some use of
the waste of ground on the field,
flooded the grounds of the stadium
Monday night.
With the help of a few sturdy cohorts, Owens soon had the large 4-
inch fire hoses streaming on the
cinder track in the hopes of making
a skating oval all the way around the
"It looked mighty fine last night,
in the dark," Owens recalled. "I told
all my boys to bring their skates tomorrow and enjoy themselves."
But the water double-crossed them
all. With the steady flow of H20 on the
cinder path, the water overflowed its
bounds and spread its way over on to
the low areas of the field.
With thc continuous run of water
back and forth, the air bubbles kept
under the forming ice making it
only a thin shell on the track strip but
forming a solid layer on the playing
So today the confederates of Johnny Owens, some of them ruggermen
to be playing soon in Victoria, practiced their three-line rims on their
flashing blades on their own rugger
Who said you couldn't play rugger
on a icy field? Where there's a will

UBC's student council is prepared for the worst.
At last Monday's special
emergency meeting the councillors, after vainly attempting
to find some way to dodge today's Pub-Council basketball
game, finally admitted that
they were trapped and would
have to take what was coming
to them.
Meanwhile as game time approaches
betting odds on the contest continue
ti rise steadily in the favour of the
scribes, who have not lost a contest
.'n tbe last 20 years.
Yesterday afternoon Pub coach
Church Marshall ran his charges

"In fact," he declares, "the Spartan

On the other hand the degenerate
and immoral habits of the council
is expected to tell when the pressure is really on,
Ubyssey editor Ron Haggart took
his axe away from the grindstone long
enough to say: "We're going to plant
a new man on council all right, but
no flowers by request."
