Students Yets Vote
For C of L Bonus
SASKATOON, Sask. Nov. 18 (CUP)
Sixty percent of the veterans on the
campus of the University of Saskatchewan voted in favor of the cost of
living bonus.
Three hundred and thirty-five veterans were in favor of the five percent cost of living bonus for every
six point rise in the cost of living.
This would be taken from the conception of the veteran's rehabilitation
Student veterans are paid sixty
dollars a month.
The veterans of the eastern varsity
also polled an affirmative vote on the
question of affiliation of the National
Council of Student Veterans with the
Canadian Legion. This vote will soon
be taken on UBC's campus by Branch
T2 of the Canadian Legion.
Veterans of all universities will vote
on this proposal before the first of
the year.
Council on Monday night also
heard plans to send Xmas food parcels
to European students, from Clara May
Tillson, formerly of Queens University.
December 1 has been set as "D
Day" for the funds raising scheme to
get into operation. If faculty support
is forthcoming, contribution boxes
will be passed around all classes at
one hour.
All monies received will be turned
over to CARE, for alleviation of food
woes of Europe's students.

in B.C. urging them to ''use all
means ia.their power" to assist Mart*
in in his fight against the decision of
the Benchers of the B.C. Law Society.
At the close of the meeting an attempt was being made to have the
resolution  moved out  of  order.
Meanwhile officials of thc UBC
Civil Liberties Union announced that,
they hope to arrange for Martin 'ind

■\t a meeting on tho campus on Tues-
dty. The Social Problems Club and
tbe LPP are supporting the CLU.
The resolution put forward at the
Legion meeting was supported on
the grounds that Martin, as a veteran,
should receive help from organizations pledged to protect the civil
rights   of  ex-service   men.
However, a member opposod to
the resolution, pointed out that Martin was being discriminated against
as a communist and not as a veteran.
Ray Dewar stated that the Law
Society was justified in banning
Martin from admission to the Bar.
"Il was anomalous for anyone to be
considered entitled to an administrative position in a system of society
in which he does not believe," he
Following the motion that the resolution be ruled out of order on the
grounds that the question of Martin's
rights as a member of a political
-party was not entitled to be decided on by the Legion, the resolution was withdrawn  by  its initiator.
However, it was immediately reintroduced by another member.
Discussion on the issue will be continued at next Wednesday's meeting
cf the branch.
In a lengthy interview with a Daily
Ubyssey reporter, Gordon Martin
made it clear that his fight with the
Benchers over his admission to the
Bar is not dead yet.
Martin intends to ask various Civil
Liberties Unions to take up his case.
Martin made extensive comment's
on thc report of tho Benchers made
public on Monday. According to him
the words he used in court lose their
meaning when taken out of context.
A writ of Mandamus, an order to
the Supreme Court of B.C. to make
public the court proceedings, may
only be given when there is "a dissenting vote of some  Benchers.
He, personally, doesn't contemplate
taking legislative action.
Meanwhile, Martin is working in
the law offices of Stanton and Munro.

The cause of UBC students

BCER Interurban Lines is being taken up by Branch 72,
Canadian Legion.
At a meeting yesterday the branch
adopted a resolution that it "prompt
the Students' Council and also take
independent action" to approach the
BCER to have student fares on the
company's interurban lines re-instituted at a suggested rate of one
dollar for ten tickets.
The branch decided to appeal to
the transit company on its own as
well as through the AMS after the
meeting was told the latter had already made one request and had been
turned down.
Supporters of thu motion stated
that the present fare of 21 cents per
trip made a large hole in the monthly
budgets of hard-pressed student veterans.
It was thought that the adoption .of
a ten cent fare rate would afford
considerable relief to UBC students.
using the lines, but would not enable
the abuse of the special rate by high
school and other students.
The abuse was one of the reasons
given by the company for withdrawing thc previous special rates.
The branch also voted yesterday t'o
re-appoint Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie
as'its honorary president, and Deans
Buchanan, Chant and Curtis; Professors Gage and Shrum, and Rev. Dr.
Taylor as honorary  members.

The Gordon Martin Case
A 3000-word epic of rationalization told
Gordon Martin last week why he cannot
practice law in the province of British
Columbia. The benchers of the law society,
final arbiters in the application of the former UBC student declare that they do not
believe Martin, as a Communist, "can be
credited with either the desire or the ability
to remain a Communist and deviate from
Communist policies and activities to the extent which would be necessary for him T.o
deviate in order to comply with the terms
of the oaths which would be required to be
taken by him as a Barrister and Solicitor."
In an editorial which was quoted from
coast to coast in Canada, The Daily Ubyssey
said on September 28, three days after Martin's application was refused, that the case
"was a shameful example of distorted thinking
by men whose supposed clarity of mind has
led them to positions of trust and responsibility in the community."
The benchers reasons, issued more than
six weeks after their decision, are disillusioning evidence of that "distorted thinking."
In pointing out that Martin cannot be
admitted to the bar because he is not "of
good repute," the benchers say he "was at
one time closely associated with one Evans,
—convicted for subversive activities."
One can hardly credit the benchers with
complete good faith when they fail to point
out that Martin's associate, Evans, was convicted under Section 98 of the Criminal Code,
a section that was repealed when the Liberals

Brock Hall is fast becoming a yacht

Some rainy clay in the not so very distant
future students will probably be treated to
a full size regatta with stars, snipes and flatties racing each other up and down from the
Stadium to the Law huts. There are enough
boat-owners on the campus to provide the
equipment and there is plenty of water.
So much water in fact that the Brock

regained power in 1935.
The benchers reasons bear out, The Ubyssey's comment on September 23 that "a
Communist, the society apparently believs,
cannot uphold the lawyer's-oath to divulge
conspiracy and cannot conscientiously carry
on those traditions of law and jurisprudence
which guard our freedoms,"
The benchers support their contention that
Martin must owe allegiance to a foreign
power with a series of quotations from cabinet ministers, RCMP officers and United
Nations delegates.
To base a legal decision on four or five
political speeches and at the same time ignore
at least one court decision which has refused
to accept the existence of "international"
Communism seems once again to smack of a
desperate jab at justification.
And when it is realized that many of the
quotations which the benchers cite in support of their stand are taken from speeches
made after Martin was refused admittance,
it becomes clear that the benchers shot first
and asked questions later.
Few citizens will accept Martin's Economic beliefs, but many more will accept his
right to belong to a legal Canadian political
party and his right to be free of shackles because of his faith. The benchers declare that
admittance to the bar is a privilege, not a
right, but that privilege stems from an act
of the British Columbia Legislature, a body
which also bars certain persons from the
vote because of their race and color. Hardly
a sound basis for our democratic rights.
Dear Sir:
It' is regretable that, at the last
AMS meeting, Mr. Dodd was asked
to publicize an apology to former
AMS officials. It is even more regretable that at that meeting, Mr.
Dodd was not commended and applauded for his motion which led
to the enquiry into weaknesses in
our AMS and t'he subsequent excellent recommendation of the investigating committee. I would like

Out Of Nowhere
From early youth I have entertained the
idea of public oratory as a career, as another
of the vehicles for imparting my gift for
learning to the masses. My Mitty-like dreams
saw me as a fiery defender of principles and
a champion of the oppressed. I was a lawyer
defending a pretty widow falsely accused of
murder; her gratitude was boundless. I was
a witty after-dinner speaker bringing howls
of laughter from a distinguished group which
included Stephen Leacock, Robert Benchlcy,
S. J. Perelman and James Thurber. I was
a gallant MP. on my feet for two days in
the House lashing a reactionary administration for their stand on the margarine
Thus it was that with characteristic eagerness I accepted an invitation to address
the members of a district boys club on some
worthy topic.
I felt that as a typical moral-minded,
cultured undergraduate my words would
help to mould iheir young minds to thoughts
of fine citizenship and clean living. The date
and time having boon fixed, I chose a.s my
subjeel ''Victorian Prose vs Comic Books as
an Kducalional Forro."
Timing by arrival so as to be just a little
late, I entered the hall full of confidence
waiting for the hush of respect that would
sweep over the eager audience. Instead I
was greeted by a moist wad of paper shot
with some force from the back of the room
and loud sounds of popping bubble gum.
Somewhat shaken by this display of unconcern for a scholar I made my way shakily
to the speakers table,
I was introduced by a doddering, kindly
benefactor whose introductory words were
a masterpiece of tact.
''Now, boys, I want you to try and pay
attention. Sit still and listen to what the
man has lo say. Johnny and Spike get up off
the floor. I'm sure our speaker won't keep
you long. Just have patience and the time
will pass quickly. May I present Mr. Roy
Instead of applause, these loathsome
words were followed by a loud chorus of
"drop dead's" and oh brother's" which, I
eonless, had the affect of lessening my interest  in the whole affair.
"Hey, windows, say something in Shake-
'";pr,ire," cried one little blight just, as I wa.s
about to open my mouth. His words were
greeted by loud laughter, more bubble gum
Ignoring the foregoing remark and dropping a quick "boys will be boys" to my helpless m.c, I finally opened with what I
thought was rather an original twist.
"Young friends, when you are handed
your diplomas, the badge of learning, and
make your way into the cruel world, you
will come upon untold hardships; you will
find in trying times that words you learned
at your mother's knee will . . ."
"Go home, four eyes." "Ah, corny." "Drop

Tho false world in which you now live, a
world of comic book violence and empty
heroism will dissolve in a swirl of . . ."
"Talk English." "Hey, pantywaist, I bet
you couldn't beat up Flash Gordon."
". . . . ugly realism."
I felt somehow that my words were not
quite striking home. Trying desparately to
remember when I had eaten sand, I opened
my mouth In go on and was struck rather
forcibly in tlie face by a  forward pass from
the wood.

they were all students.
At the CCF meeting, Spain was
cited by a speaker opposing the nonintervention ruling as an example of
how dangerous such a policy might
be. He charged that we must protect
our interests now if we expect Canada to have a fighting chance in a
possible war with Russia.
J. McGuire stated that the Chinese
people were rebelling against the
vicious conditions imposed upon them
by the Chiang regime. "These people
are starving and cold, not Communists," he said. "We 'would have their
blood on our hands if we continued
this way," he continued.
Other political clubs on the campus,
it is learned will give no support to
the picketers.
Progressive Conservative Club executives were particularly strong in
their condemnation of CCF and associated LPP action. "Utter nonsense"

between   Socialists  and   Communists"
P.C. officials charged.
"Despite their protests to the contrary, this action shows that official
CCF policy is to follow the Communists right down the line. Whenever
they have to make a choice between
supporting the Canadian government
and Communist policy, they invariably choose  the latter."
Although the meeting referred to is
a CCF Club meeting thc LPP faction
of the camus was strongly represented making the resolutions voted
on by the meeting at large the feeling
of both factions.
Dean Walter Gage, acting president of the university in the absence
of Dr. MacKenzie could not be contacted for comment.
Butter Importation
Termed "Disgrace"
Canada's importation of butter from

termed a "national disgrace" by Eric

In a breezy, informal style, the

He called for the establishment of

Dear Sir:
Tuesday noon, with a megaphone clutched infirmly in one
hand and a resolution clutched infirmly in another hand, I bent my
steps down to the Armories with a
view to presenting the said resolution to the AMS meeting.
However, an unforeseen event
(misplaced masticators) prevented
me from putting the said resolution to tlie assembled AMS at
that time.
So now, whereas my upper plate
went AWOL on Tuesday noon, and
whereas the said resolution, if
favorably received, may be presented at a future AMS meeting,
and whereas this seems to be an
open-season for amending the Code
)f tho AMS, and whereas I honestly
feel that one good resolution deserves another, would you please
do me the service of reproducing
the said resolution in your much-
maligned gazette. It reads somewhat as follows:
Be it resolved that the constitution of the Alma Mater Society be
amended or appended or extended
or (better still) suspended so as to
provide for the setting up of a
provision for the laying down of
machinery for tho selling up of a
permanent annual committee of
investigation which shall forthwith at the beginning of each and
every university term make a
thorough and comprehensive investigation cf the proceeding Students' Council. The committee,
which shall consist cf no more
than 6a members, on completing its
investigation shall report it to tho
AMS in not less than 95.007 words.
Provided thc committee shall bc
restricted merely to reaching a
vague and general conclusion. Under no circumstances shall it
make any justified unqualified
statements deploring t'he acts or
defaults of past council  members.
The above resolution was inspired by the splendid work of
the Plant Committee which probed
last year's Council, and reported
on its shortcomings in such a
splendid manner. Such a splendid
institution as the Plant Committee
must not be allowed to die; it has
rendered a great service. Not until this year did the student body
have concrete evidence as opposed to grave suspicions, that
some student officers were not
really doing the job they were elected to do,.
I should like to see the above resolution made part of the Code of
the Alma Mater Society this year
so that an investigating committee
will be in a position next September to go immediately to work
investigating the present Students'
I sincerely hope that aU AMS
members will give this resolution
their deepest consideration. Remember, evidence of malfeasance,
misfeasance, or nonfeasance (not
to mention disfeasance, exfeasance
or ufeasance) in high public office should be the property of thc
whole world. And above all, remember, the price of Liberty is
(correct me if I am wrong) only
fifteen cents,   (advt.)
Yours truly,
Rupert Ruddeli
Dear Sir:
I should like to comment upon
the sports column of Tuesday's
Ubyssey entitled—Deadlock, Rug-
ermen Held to Scoreless Draw by
South Burnaby. In doing this I am
attempting to clarify the English
rugby situation at the university
for the sole benefit of the columnist who seems to be laboring under
painful misconceptions.
As a rugby player for Varsity,
I believe that I am qualified to
express the ideas of other campus
players of the English code, In
the first place, our prime intention
is not to win games for the sake
of winning, but to enjoy ourselves
for the sake of playing. We always
try to win by playing our hardest
but if we lose a well-played game
we have the satisfaction of knowing that we have done our best.
In  the  second  place,  to  say  that
thc   UBC   team   "lived   up   to   its
usual   reputation   by   going   down
to a 16-3 defeat" does not appear
sidered  by  them,  then  for  whom
manship. I have always understood
that the student newspaper should
support university teams, whether
they win, lose, or draw. The UBC
players are doing their very best;
surely they should be congratulated  for that.  The  American  footballers   suffered   consecutive   setbacks,   yet   by   their   magnificent
efforts  they  deserve  more  praise
than a winning team. Should not
this principal apply to all campus
teams?   In   the   third   place,   the
losses  of  the  UBC  team  can   bo
directly    attributed    to    five   Big
' Block   winners   of  English  rugby,
hitherto foreign to American football, turning out for the American
game.   Obviously   the   author   did
not read Chuck Marshall's rolumn
of  two  weeks ago,   which  clearly
explained the situation. In the last
instance,  the author seems to be
completely  devoid  of  good  manners.   He   makes   this   rude   and
fatuous  statement  when  speaking
of UBC's losses.  "It's a sad state
of affairs which  will  have  to  be
remedied   if   Al   Laithwaite   is   to
be   considered   the   coach   he   is
thought  to   be."   For  tho  author's _
information,    Mr.    Laithwaite    is
NOT the coach of the UBC team
and even if he were, no reporter
has the right to derogate the ability of any coach, especially a reporter   with   a   limited   knowledge
of English  rugby  which  this  columnist apparently has.
If the author would care to participate in a rugby game there arc
thirty players who would only bc
to willing to remedy his "sad state
of affairs."

Dear Sir:
The   refusal   of   the   Students*
Council   to   consider,   much   less
accept,  the  basic design approach
of  the  models  for  the  signboard
has raised in my mind a very serious problem. The models submitted for consideration are based on
concepts which have been developing   since   the   beginning   of   this
century,  and  on  principles  which
are  as  old  as  architecture  itself.
These    concepts,    accepted    today
throughout the civilized countries
af the world, are to the architect,
what the theories of atomic structure are to the physicist. Nobody
today  would  dare  deny  the  importance of tlie physicist nor suggest that his approach to the development of atomic power to be
Newtonian. But the modern artist
and  architect,  is  being  forced,  if
he   wants   public   acceptance,   to
cling to a tradition which was almost fully exploited before Newton's time.
The models are typical of the
work being done in the architectural department and the Council
may fairly be considered typical
of the undergraduates cultural
level and it is this discrepancy
which worries me. The undergraduates today will be our clients
tomorrow, If the work we are doing is not even going to be con-
to be in the best tastes of sports-
are we going to work? To whom
will these clients turn? Should
we keep faith with ourselves or
compromise our principles and beliefs to standards imposed upon
us in order that we may eat. I am
at an age when I should be well
established in business and it is
important to me to know that 3
am right before I can accept willingly the prospect of three more
years at sixty dollars a month.
Yours   truly,
P. Cotton, 2nd Year Architecture.

Hockey Squad
Plays Tonight
In Royal City
UBC Meets Last
Year's Champions
When the UBC hockeyists
take the ice tonight they will
be after their second win in
three games. They take on last
year's Western Canada Champions, New Wesminster Cubs,
at the Royal City.
AU the players are in top shape
after the "going over" they got at
Nanaimo. The boys are already swearing revenge for the ride they received from the hospitable (?) Islanders. Bob Koch and Lloyd Torfasson are counting the days until the
Clippers visit Vancouver on December 1. This game will be a natural so ,
keep it in mind as it will be "University Night" at the Forum.
Frank Fredrickson has announced
that he will keep alternating Bill
House and Don Adams in goal until
one of them shows he is the better.
Don played at Nanaimo and caught
the eye of the fans and reporters.
House, however, will start tonight
and much will depend on his performance,
Another change in the line-up will
find Bob Lindsay, a former Medicine
Hat speedster, playing on. the third
line dn place of Jim Rowledge who
has been moved back to defense in
place of Bob Peeble. Lindsay played
senior hockey last' season and should
do fine in this league. He is a husky
who can take care of himself against
the best the Cubs can throw his way.
Game time tonight is 8:30 at Queen's
Park Arena at New Westminster.
