 THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, February 28, 1946, Page 2
The feeling still persists in many circles
that there is no place in student government for an Undergraduate Societies Committee. "Duplication of duties and authority"
in opposition to Students' Council, are the
two main criticisms, and it has been a tendency of council this year to become rather
intolerant of the USC, which has found itself
able to do little but criticise because of its
rather nebulous and ill-defined constitutional position.
This group, which was formerly intended
to replace the inactive and purposeless
Men's Undergraduate Society and give the
Undergraduate Societies a long-needed voice
on council, was suggested by a government
revision board and approved by a majority
of students in a special government revision
meeting last spring.
It had been felt, and rightly so, that the
growth in student Population and the increased complexity of student activity would
place too staggering a burden upon the
shoulders of council in the future. Division
of responsibility and labor were the objects
of the revision board. Increased representation was another object, and both were combined in the establishment of the Undergraduate Societies Committee, originally to
act as a cross-sectional sounding board of
student opinion, provide this needed undergraduate societies representation, and supply a reservoir of constructive ideas and
people willing to work hard.
The most significant power voted to the
USC was the power to act as a cross-check
to a council carrying on activities considered
arbitrary and incompatible to the wishes of
the students. This power placed the Undergraduate Societies Committee one rung
higher than the other representative groups
which have members on council, the
Literary and Scientific. Executive, the Men's
Athletic Directorate, and the Women's Undergraduate Society.
This power is a healthy one if not abused.
Clashes of personality and petty squabbles
have no place in the USC, and although this
group is more representative of all the students on the campus than any other organization, no individual member.of the USC,
any more than one individual member of
the Literary and Scientific Executive or the
Men's Athletic Directorate, should feel that
he or she is a rightful campus champion
unless the backing of USC is solidly behind
However, the collective backing of USC
is more important to council than the collective backing of any of the other groups,
because this group as a whole is so truly
,   .   .   EDITORIAL PAGE
representative. Support of such an organization is to be desired by student officers who
often have to meet the charges of "dictatorship."
Council itself is more of a functional than
a representative group, because although all
council members with the exception of the
president of the Literary and Scientific Executive, are elected at large, they may only
be termed representatives at the time of
election. Their resulting activities may not
be representative. The treasurer, president,
co-ordinator of social activities, secretary,
junior member, and sophomore member are
functional officers without the constant
group contact which the athletic representatives, presidents of the Women's Undergraduate Society, and chairman of the
Undergraduate Societies Committee, and
president of the Literary and Scientific Executive have. Yet six functional officers
wield more influence that five representative
officers, in policies which affect the student
body as a whole.
This is a discrepancy which has been recognized by the USC, but in attempting to
"make its presence felt" and assume its
rightful advisory position, the USC has gone
a little too far in some instances, and at the
same time has sacrificed its own functional
A motion passed by the group asking that
every expenditure exceeding one thousand
dollars be referred to the USC for approval
is poor. Budgets for every large dance,
sports event, or club expenditures would
theoretically all have to go before the USC.
The time factor is usually all-important in
financial considerations of this type, and
this is the work fuctional AMS officers were
elected to handle.
On the other side, large questions such as
student campaigns, student conferences,
employment, and, any others, should be
brought before the USC "Opinion Forum,"
a convenient substitute for a general student
assembly. The USC is also functional in its
own right. It should promote student enterprise in a similar fashion as the LSE,
WUS, WAA, and MAD.
The USC is wrong when it assumes that
council is "jealous of its powers." Council
is also wrong when it assumes that the USC
is a useless appendage set upon blocking
council. Although functional power must
be centralized there is room for more representative opinion on council. The USC
president presenting the majority views of
the USC can provide this, if USC is given
a chance by Council.

folkways are changing. The custom now,
says Dr. Topping, is for the boy to sit in
the bus and hold the girl's books. Times
change and styles appear to change with
A particularly good movie of a few years
ago, "Kitty Foyle," gives a clear view of
the gradual change in the social habits of
America. The introduction to the story was
born of nothing less than genius. It described the transition of women from home-
makers to female males.
* In the old days, women apparently occupied a pedestal. Men called them the
"weaker sex" and interpreted chivalry to
mean regard for their Physical and moral
welfare. Cigarettes and cigars were snuffed
out in their presence, conversation was
raised out of the beer-hall level, seats were
vacated in public conveyances for their
As women began to take a greater place
in public life, the professions and industry,
however, a lot of the old customs which men
observed out of respect for the female of the
species began to disappear. Tipping the
hat, polite chat with the current flame's
chaperone, leaving her massive parlor
promptly at father's ten o'clock "harumph"
vanished with the high-laced shoe.
The End Of The Trend
We have reached a stage now in which
women are apparently so completely
accepted as equals that we hardly think pf
allowing them the once-customary courtesies.
Nevertheless, the present laxity of manners
in men is due less to boorishness than to an
unconscious respect for modern womanhood.
Especially since the war, men realize that
women can do just about everything they
can, and every bit as capably; they are therefore to be treated as equals at all times.
If the above paragraph really does represent manhood's view of womanhood today,
then the custom of the boys taking the seats
in buses—and holding the girl's books—is
easily explainable. The only question is:
how far should this equality business go?
On the Varsity buses morning and after
noon, we favor complete equality. Let boys
and girls continue to march in and occupy
the seats as they come to them. The system
has proven itself efficient. We might even
try out Bob Hope's idea, which was to point
out a seat to a lady and then race her for
it. But in any case, let's draw the line for
such conduct at Tenth and Sasamat.
Poor Show On Street Cars
In street cars, where university students
come in contact with the general public,
there is no place for the share-and-<share-
alike scheme. Certain folkways may die
out, it is true, and we youngsters may interpret courtesy differently from the way our
elders interpret it, but common decency and
thoughtfulness we must not ignore.
Conduct of male students on street-cars
travelling to and from Varsity is at a low
ebb indeed. Old ladies, heavy old gentlemen with canes, young mothers with children in their arms, often swing precariously
on straps while husky young gentlemen —
pardon , men — sit complacently with their
eyes fastened to books, Ubysseys, or passing
store windows.
It usually becomes the duty of a soldier,
stenographer, or somebody's father to show
an act of kindness by yielding a seat to.
someone more in need of it.
Is It Progress?
Is such sullenness on the part of university
men the result of a new way of looking at
life? Is it part of this thing called progress?
If so, we frankly regret the passing of a more
polite era.
If women want political, educational, and
commercial equality with men, they must
also accept social equality. Men are prepared to give all four. But men, particularly
university men, must see the difference between social equality and downright un-
Let women stand in streetcars, gentlemen,
if you wish, but don't take it out on old
ladies. Or old gentlemen, for that matter.
We'll all be doddering old types ourselves
one day, and probably wish the youngsters
of that day would show us the kindness we
failed to show when we were their age.
Nika Turn-Turn
thc trolley — and it clanged on by
the stop, full up. Twenty more
students missed their nine-thirty
The disgruntled gent standing
next to me In the crowd said a few
words—most of them choice—as
we started to walk.
"I   hope  they  get  cracking  on,
that   bus   transfer   scheme,"   he
wound   up. ' "The   moral    effect
would be great, even if we can't
make the lecture in time."
And so it would. The gentleman wanted to see The Ubyssey
keep the ball rolling on the question of streetcar fares and service,
believing that student opinion, coordinated, could do a good deal to
ease the situation.
The question of transfers to and
from the outside-city-llmits bus
service to the campus is a moot
point. One school believes a
single-ticket plan would be best.
Whatcha Gonna Do With V2c
HOWEVER, this involves the di-
nculty of those who use the bus
only, and rarely travel on the
trolley system. An alternative suggestion is that the UBC special
ticket permits issued by the registrar's office might be used to obtain four-cent tickets for trolley
travel to and from the campus.
This would appear to be an
equitable solution to the transit-
expenses problem. It would involve a fourteen-cent total rate
to and from classes from any point
in the city, in place of the present
rate of eighteen and a half cents
for a return trip.
It would also mean that those
who walk to the bus would still
travel at the current three-cent
It haa been suggested also that
a concerted request from the Canadian Legion through the Department of Veterans' Affairs, and
by the non-veteran student body
through the Alma Mater Society
might bring action.
As for street-car service, students who board the West Point
Grey line anywhere between the
Granville • Broadway intersection
and Sasamat are indignant. There
are not enough 15 and 16 cars
westbound in the mornings, they
I have watched as many as Ave
Dunbar cars pass 10th and Alma
in a ten-minute period (enough to
make or miss a lecture) without
one 15 or 16 putting in an appearance. And I have, watched from
ten to thirty students turned back
from the appropriate car when it
comes along.
One means of helping this difficulty would be to re-route one or
two of the extra Dunbar cars to
Sasamat first, then send them down
the Dunbar line on the eastbound
trip before they went on downtown.
A Hack From The Back
augment present service by lengthening the Jericho bus line to end
at the campus bus stop. If the
seven-cent fare system could be
won by students, there could hardly be any objection to this.
The point to be remembered ls
that the local transit officials have
7000 customers concentrated at the
end of Point Grey.   And 7000 cus
tomers in one body should have a
fairly big voice: it only remains
for them to use it
If students will co-ordinate their
efforts, tihe matter should readily
be solved.
And in the meantime, we can all
ease off the situation a trifle by
staggering our hours of arrival at
congestion points. It won't hurt
to be ten minutes early—gives time
for a coffee.
Double Up In Front
ALSO A LITTLE co-operation in
moving forward in the car will
give the poor old conductor a
chance to see just how many more
anxious students he can cram in.
When the rear portion of the aisle
is jammed, what hope has he (and
the poor joe out in the street) to
do anything?
One person stopping in the aisle
to talk to his current girl-friend
can be the means of preventing up
to thirty others missing an important lecture. What about that,
The McGill Daily not long ago
reported the sad story of a Saskatchewan coed who fell flat on
her — well, you know, In a streetcar. "Whaddaya know — drunk
again!" she is said to have quipped.
Well, it couldn't happen in Vancouver.
LETTERS   To   The    Editor
Plug For Berton
Dear Madam: *
Why the blast at Berton? His
article in a downtown paper had
its faults, but the article and
editorial In Saturday's Ubssey
contained much the same faults.
Berton was in error in this, that
he interviewed a few people—20 or
30 or 40 — and then gave their
views as being representative of
the opinions of several thousand
others. The navy veteran was
guilty of the same fault if he was
correctly 'quoted as stating inclusively that all the veteran-students
do and think, but a slip that is
excusable in conversation is not
excusable in what is presumed to
be an accurate reporting.
Perhaps reporters feel they have
some justification for becoming a
little cynical about the value of
complete accuracy. They grind
out their stuff every day only, to
see it wrapped around the flsh in
the morning, so what the hell! But
I think they should remember one
of the few proverbs which seems
worth remembering: "All generalities are lies — including this
one." And generalities dealing
with people are particularly risky.
But now consider the Ubyssey's
cool and reasoned riposte. You
have Berton referring to an "unbridgeable gap" when he said that
next year the two groups should
fuse more easily, You quote a
veteran as saying, "The story certainly tried to convey the impression that there was animosity."
when Berton stated at the beginning of his article "—between
these groups there is no friction."
You cap this by quoting Student
Council leaders as calling Berton's
article deliberately misinterpre-
tive, and by referring in your
editorial to "a slight sacrifice of
And then the epithets applied
in your columns, both to the article and to Berton "straight
abuse, trash, half-baked, sensationalism, typical drivel." Berton

Accuses LPP
Dear Madam:
As a very interested observer
who has attentively followed the
discussion of the question of "political parties on the campus" and
who witnessed its constitutional
defeat at the polls by a two to one
majority, I was surprised to find
that the representatives of the
Communist Party (I feel it is not
damaging to call the LPP by Its
original name as its organization
is no longer illegal) have, in spite
of student disapproval, formed a
political club on the campus, or
to be exact, have taken over the
Social  Problems Club.
I would not suggest that tfhU
was done by any but democratic
means (although evidence of so-
called "house-packing" was shown
by them at the first Mock Parliament election), and I will be
only too willing to apologize if 1
have misrepresented any of the
five members of the SPC exetss-
tive elected last Tuesday.
I feel it is only fair that the
incident should be put before the
student body for inspection and
interpreted in whatsoever light
each individual considers just.
If a student of statistics can
prove that this move can be explained by the laws of probability, I will also willingly admit my
frail grasp of the science of mathematics. If, however, this is not
the result of a well organized and
efficiently executed plan I hope
that I may be forgiven for disturbing the tranquility of the
campus with my ill-founded fears.

boomed the chairman, "that the paper-boys who presumably
live at the other end of this building have kindly offered
their carcasses for use in putting a fine polish on the floor

there is a catch to it. The pubsters object to their carcasses
being used for polishing rags while there is still the usual
faint suspicion of breath in them . . . and since they can't
stand the sight of blood, they expect us to reduce them to
a state of 100% cadavers before tiie polishing begins.

To Offer New
Aggie Courses
A FIVE-YEAR course in food
technology heads a list of nine
new subjects to be offered in the
faculty of agriculture at University of British Columbia, when
the 1946-47 term opens in September.
Another major change in the
agriculture faculty in the elimination of the double degrees of
B.S.A. and B.Com. and substitution of a single B.S.A. degree offering a commerce option.
Entrance requirements for the
new food technology course will
be senior matriculation or flrst-
year university. Aim of the
course is to provide the student
with a broad knowledge of
sciences underlying commercial
preservation and manufacture of
foodstuffs; the structure of the industry and its relation to agriculture, food and supply.
Other new subjects to be offered
in agriculture are:
Frield crop technology—study of
chemical constituents of field
crops as influenced by climate,
soil and variety with applications
to the processing of farm crops,
Advanced livestock judging —
intensive laboratary course in
dairy cattle judging.
Food values and horticultural
crops—course on variety, locality,
climate, photoperiod, soil type, etc.
Physiology of sex In poultry, reproduction and endocrinology —
advanced course in fundamentals
of egg production and reproduction In the domestic fowl.
Research courses in animal nutrition, animal husbandry, physiological disturbances in animals
and a graduate seminar for animal
husbandry have also been added
to the agricultural curriculum.
Vets' Mass Meet
Will Discuss VLA
A MASS MEETING of student-
veterans interested in the Veterans' Land Act will be held on the
campus soon, according to executive member Fred Waterman of
the UBC Branch, Canadian Legion.
An official of the department set
up under the Act will outline new
amendments and details of the
dominion farm settlement scheme.
Questions will be answered, and
problems  discussed.
Arrangements are In the hands
of the Land Act Committee, an affiliate of the campus Legion
branch. Its work includes promotion of understanding of VLA
details, and efforts to determine
the value placed on occupational
and degree courses in Agriculture
by Land  Act officials.

Dear Madam:
On February 4 I found a lady's

and rather than trust it to tihe
tender graces of the lost and

This is now the 28th. and many

attention to one I turned in Friday afternoon, the 15th, which has

Engineers Go On
Long Field Trip
TWENTY-NINE fourth and flfth-
year electrical engineering students, with Lome Kersey, an instructor, last week undertook the
longest field trip in the history of
University of British Columbia.
They travelled 360 miles by car to
see Grand Coulee Dam, Washington.
Weak from the Science Ball, the
students left Friday morning on
the 12-hour trip, and were conducted over the dam and through
the plant on Saturday.
They learned that the dam, second largest in the world, contains
enough concrete to built a three-
foot sidewalk two and one-half
times around the world.
Only mishap of the trip was the
ditching of Norm Olson's car. The
underneath of the car was packed
solid with snow and the boys had
to shovel it clear.

VARSITY'S Inter B hoopers
entered the city finals when they
downed Vancouver College 56-52 at
King Ed Gym Tuesday night before a near capacity crowd.
When the boys sidled off the
maple court at halftime, the score
found Varsity leading by a 31-26
margin. However this lead was
short-lived as the Fighting Irish
came back to cut the Varsity lead
to a meagre two points. From
there on in Varsity's hoopers managed to stay a couple of baskets
ahead of a desperate College
The Varsity cagers played a two-
one two zone defence which managed to buffalo the fast-breaking
Collegiates. On the offense the
Campus Cagers used single-bucket
man plays that turned out to be
the deciding factor in their well-
earned victory.

To Challenge Thunderbirds' Casaba Supremacy
UBC'S GALLOPING THUNDERBIRD basketballers are ready for their biggest test
of the Northwest Conference when they trot onto the Varsity maple courts to tangle with
the College of Puget Sound quintet in the most crucial contest of the whole season Saturday
night. The Loggers, fresh from battering the College of Idaho Coyotes twice, arrive at
UBC Friday in plenty of time for Saturday's tilt which is slated for 8 o'clock.

SOCCER GETS into the swing of
things for Visitors' Day with two
games, both starting at the new
time of 3 p.m. The UBC team will
bi the campus hosts to Bob
Quinn's Pro-Rec Maple Leafs,
while Varsity has another go at
the Imperial Cup at Larwill Park.
This crucial, final cup game can't
be played on the campus since all
cup   games   must   be   played   on
neutral grounds. Therefore, Varsity and Vancouver Uniteds will
clash on the downtown park, and
the winner of this game gets the
Imperial Cup, symbol of supremacy in the Vancouver and District
The cup finalists played half a
game last Saturday before the
game was called on account of
rain, and in that time neither team
was able to score. Varsity seems
to have the edge in speed and
conditioning, and the Golds manage possession of the ball most of
the time, but they haven't yet
found the scoring formula. If
they happen to find it during
Saturday's game, the Uniteds won't
stand much of a chance.
The Varsity team ha3 been practising faithfully for this cup game,
and yesterday they played an exhibition game with Hastings Park
Ordinance Depot team. It was a
very fruitful practice for the Gold-
shorts, for they were pitted against
