Toronto Book Store'Boycott'
Leads to President's Action
Students at UBC are being urged by Student Council to
buy no books from three Canadian publishers because of the'
boycott of the University of Toronto book store.
In a letter to The McMillan Company of Canada Ltd. and
Nelsons Ltd., Jim Sutheralnd, president of the AMS, told the
companies that "we will urge students, where possible, to buy
no books from your firm or from Oxford Press and Nelsons Ltd."
' Sutherland waa replying to letters<|>-
Soclety is sending a brief to Victoria
urging that student* be allowed to
use the current JJeenee plates of their
respeeVve province or state.
Cumming stated, "the situation as
it exists today puts a definite handicap on the American student studying
at UBC, as Canadian students at
American universities are not forced
to use foreign plates when studying
In theJJS."
The brief requests that the Lieu-
tenam-Oovernor-ln-Coundl place
bona-flde students In ths same class
as tourists. This is requested eg

a '7-month period,
redeWtW"'c* University Studehts
with a move ©ward Introducing uniform- legislature across the country.
Government haa announced that this
is unacceptable as tourists do not
normally reside for as long as 7
months ln the province.
Two alternatives suggested to the
Government are: that the BC Motor
Vehicle Act be ai tended, or, that the
Province of British Columbia make
reciprocal agreements with the other
states and provinces concerned.
In defending its case the Government states that it does not wish to
lose the revenue from this source.
Brief admits the loss, but states
that thc revenue involved amounts
to only $1,800 annually on a basis
of the amount of "Check-up" slips
issued by the University detachment
of the BC police.

stated that Student Council did not

Early this month, CouncU esme out
in support of the stand of the University of Toronto and petitioned the
book publishers explaining their stand.
In replying to Council, W. R. Mc-
Culley, of the educational department
of Nebwn and Sons said, "The background of the situation that has arisen
and ithe situation Itself is rather difficult to outline by correspondence."
John Gray, managing director of
the McMillan Co., stated: "It ia not
possible in correspondence to relate
all ithe circumstances leading to the
present situation at the University

It's Affilliate Or Get Out
The spectre of affiliation with the Inter-
, I national Union of Students is once more
looming over the heads of UBC students.
Two years ago, students okayed affili-
atibh with .this communist-dominated group
on a trial basis of two years. AMS President
Grant Livingstone went to Paris for an IUS
executive Council meeting and ran smack into
the middle of the communist-domination despite his attempts to consolidate a western
The two year affiliation period will end
this year. Students will doubtless be asked
at the Spring general AMS meeting whether
they wish to continue the affiliation. This
time affiliaton will probably be permanent.
Td afflUate with IUS, the National Federation of Canadian University Students will
have to approve such a move at their next
annual conference in September.
The point is the NFCUS cannot affiliate
cc-hditionally again. This time it's either affiliate j>ermanently or get out altogether. The
only reason NFCUS affiliated conditionally
two years ago was to keep NFCUS together.
Certain Canadian campii threatened to pull
out if NFCUS affiliated and others said they
would leave if they didn't. So a two-year
conditional affiliation was affected by Livingstone.
Anotheiv factor in the affiliation problem
is that NFCUS cannot go in alohe without
the support of other western student groups.
Another danger is that communist groups in
Canada may take the bull by the horns and
affiliate despite NFCUS. Like other Commie
groups, the IUS favors splinter groups.
The prospect of Canadian stude'ntt affiliating with IUS may be the cohesive force in
welding western students into a united bloc.
The danger of communist-domination in
student affairs is no less dangerous today
than it was two years ago. The only sane
answer to the problem seems to be affiliation
with IUS to combat their policies.
It would be even more dangerous to
adopt a negative policy and leave the group
It Still Looks Like A Combine
Sounding like a pair of small boys caught
with their hands in the cookie jar, two book
companies — The McMillan Company and
Nplsohs Ltd. — have replied to the stand
taken by Student Council on the boycott
these two companies have affected at the
University of Toronto.
The two companies have returned letters s
which are meaningless beyond description.
They have not commented oh the stand of
Council nor have they advanced on their
reasons for refusing to supply texts to the
U of T bookstore. The publishers still seem
to have formed a combine no matter which
way you look at it.
As long as we live under a free enterprise system it is essential that such abuses
as combines be eliminated. Students should
take a definite stand against the actions of
thi'SP two book companies.
The combine's investigators of the Dominion government ought to take a good, lone
look into this one.

Ubyssey Conespondent Fink Gives
To tht Bolka
While blatantly assuring the Western
World that their government is run democratically, in the interests of the people,
UBC's Alma Mater Society is actually in
the grip of a small clique, the all-powerful Student Council Party. A small ring
of economic barons, they maintain rigid
control of the impoverished masses by
means of a body of secret police known
as the USC (University Secret Cops).
Last week, Correspondent Mercedes
Fink, head of Ubyssey's Point Grey
Bureau, covered UBC presidential elections. Smuggling his written observations
past AMS censors, he cabled:
The tired young peasant girl shuffled
up to the polling station, her eyes wide with
fear, her thin, drab smock askew, revealing
her bony hips, her sunken chest.
As she reached out to accept her ballot
from the stony-eyed official behind the coun-
. ter, a companion tapped her on the shoulder.
"Tuum Est (Jiggers, the bulls)" he said.
While the official eyed her suspiciously,
the girl quickly grabbed the ballot, wrote
the number "1" in front of all five candidates'
For in this hind of totalitaria, everyone
votes all candidates "number one," for fear
of offending a Party member. Theirs is a
system of preferential voting in whidh none
dares show his preference.
Outside the polling station, Party members, indistinguishable by their dress from
common students, paced back and forth. Now
arid then one would accost a student coming
from "tile polling station.
Seizing him by tho jaw, the burly, well-
fed Partyman would pry open his victim's
mouth. Unless the student's cavities were
empty, it would mean the man had eaten
his ballot.
I saw two husky Party members stuffing
a frightened student peasant into a cramped
UBC bus. Another student told me the man
had been caught eating the glue from the
back of a campaign sticker. It made ho difference to the Party that he had once fought
against Hitler's armies in Camp Borden.
As the bus whisked its human cargo of
misery from sight, four women stood watching, their eyes wide with fear that another
Partyman might guess their sympathy.
One of the four women told me she was
his wife. The other three were girl friends.
"We'll never see him again," one said.
"They're taking him to the Balka (Bookstore.
Literal translation: 'Land of the living
Far from the Balka, flabby-jowled Valta
Ewing, boss of 7,000 student peasants, relaxed behind a gleaming desk piled high
with four billion kopeks ($1.67, U.S. currency), his share of the week's takings in
ever-rising AMS fees.
Out on the streets, the Greekas, middle
class members of a "classless" society, shouted their support of election candidates.
As the election drew to a close, I realized
what every student peasant had known before it had begun: Not only were all candidates handpicked by Partymen. In a regime
that boasts of democracy, five men were
running. Only one would get in.
From a poster overtop the ,Brocka, the
face of Joseph Haar beamed on passersby.
For the fee-drained masses, the poster
was significant: On the UBC campus, at least
someone was smiling.

Venus ahd Cupid had small part*

friend Sykes becomes suspent immediately. Sykes has found filth Where

Poor Sykes! He sits In a self-

would ram his head against his cage
top. Sykes is so busy grabbling for
a diet of pornography under the guise
of self-righteousness that he misses
any real focd content the plays might
have — and they are rich in vitamins.
And people pass unhealthy foods
through the bars to Sykes. Someone
passed Sykes a poisoned sugar plum
labelled "J. B. Priestley is a socialist."
Sykes swallowed It and got very sick
because the Ingredients of the confection were impure. Priestley Is not
even a member of the Labor party,
whereas Bernard Shaw, td whom he
gives en excellent quote is, or was,

he was a first-rate socialist he Was

School at UBC. This desire for a
Medical Faculty had been present
ever since the Pre-Med's formed an
Undergraduate Society in 1933 under
the chairmanship of (Dr.) William
Gibson, (now back on the campus),'
but with the return of veterans to
thc campus the need became more
For the following three years these
students with leaders like Allan MacFarlane, Bob Wilson and Pat Fowler
presented the case for a Medical
School at UBC to the people of British
Columbia via the media of the press,
radio and platform. Editors o/ newspapers were contacted and they co*
operated with the Society ln writing
editorials and articles in support of
our cause.
Round table discussions and radio
addresses were broadcast Over the
local networks at various times to
coordinate with our plans. Member of
the executives spoke to Boards of
Trade, Labor Unions, political groups,
Legion Branches, and these group!
gave their support to our cause by
wriUng letters, resolutions and lobbying the Members of Parliament.
Some of tha MLA's were even
brought out to the campus for lunch
und campaigned personally, ln March
1947, the Provincial Legislature by
unanimous vote passed a resolution
urging that the University proceed
with a Medical School.
Medical Schools are not built by
resolutions alone, much groundwork
in the way of investigations and report;; had to be made; much work
was done by Dr. C. E. Dolman, Dr.
Strong, the British Columbia Medical
Association and reports of experts In
medical education from Eastern Canada and United States.
In the spring of 1949 the Pre-Medical students welcomed the announcement of the 'appointment of Dr. Myron
Weaver as Dean of Medicine and the
[ opening of classes ln the fall of 1950.
To those students who strove for a
medical school that they knew most
of them would never enter and to
the thousands of individuals who
aided in the campaign — our gratitude.

Fans To See Top Team Here;
Injuries May Hinder 'Birds
Height Also Problem for'Birds
But Good Showing Promised
Hoop fans at UBC will have their chance to see one of the
best basketball teams on the Pacific coast in action here Saturday night as the Birds meet the Savages from Eastern Washington College.      ,
Eastern was the ball club that is^— ———
currently leading the Evergreen Conference race with six wins and one
loss so far this year.
In fhe pre-season games that Eastern played, they beat the Washington
State ball club by something like
25 points, and Washington State went
on to beat U. of Washington by
ftbout the same amount a few days
Bird hoopers will not be having any
easy time this weekend either. Fof-
syth is still In pretty poor shape
with his leg injury. He has graduated
to the point ot running but chances
of doing any jumping are pretty slim.
BUI Bell is starting to work into
shape again, and If he has a good
night this weekend, the Birds chances
will look a great deal brighter.
And also If Reid's slight injury
the other night has worked its way
out, and if Louie's practise Injury is
worked out, the Birds might even
be able to pull out ot the cellar wWi
they meet Whitworth In the Friday
night game.
Outstanding problem for the Birds
will be the height question. The
Pomfretmen will Juet not have any
boys that* are tall enough or husky
enough to be able to meet their
Opponent's on the backboards this
But for those of you that might be
willing to write both of this weekend's games off as bad losses should
think again.
It ls a strange thing about the
Birds, but their hustle and fire-ball
collegiate tactics only come to the
fore when they are hopelessly outclassed. That will occur this weekend
Eastern junior varsity last
year, six foot guard Dale Strad-
ling is expected to see action
in the Eastern-UBC game here
Saturday night.
Stanford Rugger
Here Next Week
California Renew Matches
After Thirteen Year Layoff
Stanford Indians and their 50-man squad will arrive in
Vancouver Wednesday, February 15th, for a two-game exhibition with the UBC Thunderbirds. .    *
The Indians, from Palo Alto, Cali-<§	
fornia,  will play  at UBC  Stadium
against Coach Laithewalte's Thunderbirds on February 16 and 18th.
The last time the 'Birds played
against the Stanford Indians was back
in 1936. When the locals met them
on the ruslby field, the Palo Alto
fifteen were defeated 21-6. „
During 1936-37, Captain Debbie produced his "wonder team." It was
during this period that the UBC
Thunderbirds swept all opposition and
won every cup in sight.
The Blue and Gold tasted its first
morsel of victory way back in 1921,
when they defeated the Indians 3-0.
Stanford had won the Olympic Games
Rugger championship the year before.
Coaching the Stanford fifteen \<i
Chuck Taylor, freshman football
coach, who has clone a terrific job
with the Indian football team. For the
last three years, under his coaching,
his football team haven't lost one
game. Stanford officials are hoping
that Taylor will have as much success
with his ruggermen as he has had
with  his  gridders.
Sparking the Palo Alto rugby roster,
is Bill McColl, an outstanding grid
star. At the recent Pineapple Bowl
Game in Honolulu, he played an
excellent  game of ball,
Although he had not carried tho
ball previously during the season, he
carried on ends, arounds, six times
for seventy-three yards. McColl will
be a potential throat to all UBC opposition.
UBC's answer to Stanford's powerful rugger rosier are stalwarts Gil
Steer, Stan Clarke, Dick Ellis, George
Puil, Hilary Wotherspoon, Junior Tennant and feill Sainas.
Laiithewaite'g rugger squad will he
out, there on Thursday and Saturday
to   show   tho   Stanford   Indians   that
our team  is  well worthy  of another
