fired from the ordeal of getting
lo university in time for morning
classes Monday, were asking
why lectures were not "cancelled
until the weather lets up. Otners
simply stayed home, as did a
number of professors.
President N. A. M. MacKenzie, who tramped to his office on
skis, declared that UBC "will
not be closed."
He said as long as the heat and
light held out, UBC will remain
open.
"It's a working institution, not
a school," he said. "And anyone
who wants to come out can."
A powerhouse spokesman said
there is enough fuel on hand to
last through three weeks pf otfr
"arctic" weather.
However, many morning clashes were cancelled Monday.
Seme of them because lecturers
could not make it to classes.
Many students, discouraged
because they mushed through
early morning snow drifts only
to be met by "cancelled class"
notices, threatened not to return to UBC until the weather
changes.
Mike Nuttal, AMS activities
co-ordinator, said no further
activities will be booked on campus until brighter weather
comes. Some scheduled meetings have already been cancelled.
Department of extension night
classes have been cancelled until further notice, declared a

... USC Discilpine
The ahove scene greeted male students in thc men's
lavatory in Brock hall Monday morning. The bottle was
left, as other bottles are often left, after a Saturday night
dance in thc Brock.
By-law 10, article 2 of thc AMS constitution reads:
"Drinking of Intoxicating liquors at student university
functions held on the university campus is prohibited. . . "
The Discipline committee of the Undergraduate Societies Committee is supposedly responsible for policing
Brock hall dances. Last week USC, in presenting its plea
to leave student discipline under USC jurisdiction, told
Student Council that studeni inactions were being adequately policed.
Two weeks ago, a student barely escaped serious injury
at a Brock hall dance. USC's discipline committee refused
lo investigate or lay a charge.
USC still contends that it is doing an adequate job of
maintaining student discipline. USC says that there is no
need for an independent student court to try and sentence
students who disregard AMS by-laws.
CLU TO PRESENT PC'S VIEW

Civil Liberties Union presents Stuart Chambers in
Arts 100 noon today. He will present the Progressive Conservative Party's view on civil, liberties.
Last week CLU presented LPP Nigel Morgan. The
speakers are asked to.present their views on civil liberties,
and represent various. Canadian political parties.
CLU plans to have all Canadian political party policies
on civil liberties represented by guest speakers at UBC.
Ferneyhough Fights But
Student Hecklers Tough
Over 100 students Friday raised a barrage of heckling
against speaker Beatrice Ferneyhough, Labor Progressive member recently expelled from the Red Cross.
Miss Ferneyhough spoke on political discrimination, calling it a threat to Canadian democracy. She was sponsored by
'♦ he Social Problems Club.
COMBO COHORT

Brock bargain hunters went
home satisfied Friday after enjoying Geoff Dewis, and his Chi-

Everything went, from a pair

During the discussion period
students raised questions concerning a downtown paper's
claims that Miss Ferneyhough
had served a jail term during
thc war, and that she was convicted of using aliases.
Defending her position, she declined to comment but said that
these charges were "of a serious nature."
UBC GRADUATE
Miss Ferneyhough; a UBC
graduate, said that "the right
to freely express one's opinions,
draw one's own conclusions, and
try to convince others, is the essence of democracy."
She was hired by the Red
Cross December 4 oq recommendation of the personnel department of UBC and approved
by H. N. McCorkindale, Superintendent of Vancouver schools,
and, Harold Campbell, deputy
minister of educaion. She was
fired December 6.
POLITICS AGAIN
The reason given for her dismissal was that she lacked sufficient familiarity with the B.C.
teaching staff, but the press gave
"political affiliations" as the
reason, said Miss Ferneyhough.

Racialism
TORONTO   — (OUP)  A
charge. of racial discrimination
has been laid by graduate student Daniel G. Hill against en
officer of the Hart House (University of Toronto) Employment
Service.
Hill said he had applied for a
Christmas job with the Canadian
National Express and had taken
a  letter of rocomendation from
the CNE terminal agent to .the
employment officer, E. A. Halse.
|     He stated that though the let-
, ter had asked he be among the
20 selections, he had not been
\ notified by Halse at the proper
time.     Furthermore,   he   said,
' Halse had turned over an application form to him only after a
"heated discussion."
Hill has also complained about
I the  content  of the   application
i form.    This form  requires  the
j applicant   to   give   information
j concerning his nationality, place
| of birth and complexion.
I     Hill filed his complaint with
j the   Department   of Labour   on
December 15.   He later received
I a letter dated January 4 stating
lhal  CNE had informed all  its
! managers   to   delete   the   three
! questions,   pending   receipt   of
forms which would not contain
UBC's week-long celebration of Columbia University's Bi- j them.
Centennial will consider nearly every aspect of the celebration's
theme.
All built around the theme of "Man's Right to Knowledge
and the Free Use Thereof", a whole array of lectures and panel
sh3  continued.
"I had every reason to feel
that I had already been accepted as a permanent employee.''
Miss Ferneyhough sai-d that
the Red Cross is a non-partisan
organization, without political,
racial or religious discrimination, and "lo allow this incident
to go by would be to allow thc
principles of discrimatory selection to prevail."

COMPULSORY   SECURITY
With "the 1955 revision of the
Charter in mind, the discussion
panel, consisting of President
N. A. M. MacKenzie, Dean Henry Angus,. Dean George Curtis,
and Professor Charles Bourne,
stressed the necessity of compulsory collective security, the issue that ^as sidestepped by the
League of Nations and later undermined its efficiency.
The discussion panel agreed
that the same issue had been
avoided by the United Nations,
and Dr. Angus told the large
audience of the disgust he had
felt when he first learned about
thc  negotiations  in  1945.
MANY DEFECTS
Dr. Curtis did not think that
any constitutional amendments
could prevent situations like the
split over Korea from arising,
and he stressed the usefulness
of regional security pacts as provided for by thc Charter.
Bourne said that the Charter
is full of 'defects, and in his opinion the most pressing task is to
incorporate n it some new provisions to offset the destructive

Momism And Papa
WE'RE glad to see that, perched atop the drivel on the
current Hit Parade, is a Swiss folk song peddled by some
Tin Pan Alley merchants as "Oh, Mine Papa.''
We're glad to see this is only for the fact that it temporarily refutes the "momism" theory of novelist Philip
Wylie and a few other people who claim that North America
is run by Westwood Sewing Circles.
Mr. Wylie (Opus 21, Generation of Vipers) is always ao
perfectly right in all his theories that, for once, we're glad
to see him run up against the dead-end of a best-selling record.
Now we'll just sit back and wait for Eddie Fisher to come
.out with a platter extolling the virtues of mother-in-law
and then watch the cartoonists and gag writers squirm.

GUEST EDITORIAL
Stoyva Is A Fool
SEVEN full days ago there appeared in these columns an
editorial by one Johann Stoyva, campus intellectual. That editorial attacked the fraternity system. It is time that editorial
had its answer.
TO EXPECT an answer from the fraternity men is absurd. They know they need not bother with intellectuals.
The answer must come from another intellectual. Fight
lukewarm water with lukewarm water. I qualify. I therefore
answer:
TO UNDERSTAND the true meaning of Stoyva's argument it is first necessary to analyse the manner in which that
argument is presented. Are the facts stated clearly? Is it in
terms forthright, honest, and confident that Stoyva lays before
us his attitude towards those facts?
NO. The answer to both our questions is "No". We deduce that Stoyva is just another misfit intellectual*One who
could not reconcile the natural debt of Man to Mind with the
equally natural debt of Man to Society. Stoyva was afraid cf
getting short-changed.   Alors, •
"He—alone—passes by,
..Walking wintry streets of night,
Throwing bricks at each warm window
He alone passes by."
STOYVA may be dismissed as a fool. Those 'facts', however at which he so slyly hints, merit careful appreciation.
If they were true, what would be their significance?
FIRST 'FACT'. All fraternities rest on an apparently
firm foundation of class distinction. So what? Organization
is fundamental to the accomplishment of great things. Hierarchy is fundamental to organization. And hierarchy means
cjftss distinction. In Egypt there were priests. In North
America we have businessmen. In Russia there are policemen.  Fraternity men simply reeognize this principle.
SECOND 'FACT!' Most fraternities surround themselves with a curtain of secrecy. Once again, so what? Sac-
redness and secrecy go, inevitably, hand in hand. Those things
we hold most necessary we also hold most secret. Isn't that
only natural?   There is no toilet in my living-room.
THIRD 'FACT'! Some who join fraternities do so with
a view to future pecuniary gain. Some!!! To join without this
view would surely be insanity! Who ever heard of paying
one hundred dollars for 'fellowship'?
FOURTH 'FACT'. Some fraternity men are homosexuals. I see no grounds for objection here. I myself know
hundreds of homosexuals. They are in every walk of life.
Besides, some sorority girls may be lesbians.
ENOUGH of Stoyva's 'facts'. Even if true, none of them
are alarming. There is only one more thing to be dealt with
—Stoyva's conclusion.
STOYVA CONCLUDES that the fraternities should be
investigated. He says that either they would be guilty or
they would not be guilty. And if they were guilty they would
have to be dismissed from the campus. While if they were
not guilty they would have to be absorbed by the AMS. I
am sure that the 'frats' would find either alternative distasteful.
I CONCLUDE, contrary to Stoyva, that the fraternities
should not be investigated, I say that, in this circumstance,
either they would change their ways or they would not change
their ways. If they changed their ways then everyone—in-
eluding Stoyva—would be happy. While if they didn't change
at all . . . Well, no one would find out anyway. In either
case, I'm sure they'd like me.
OF COURSE this does not mean that fraternities accomplish anything, are very basic to our way of life, or do
anyone except fraternity members much good.  Thank you.

LETTERS to the EDITOR
Discrimination
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The controversy over fraternities has arisen again, and
once again the discriminatory
clauses are providing the focal
point of the whole question.
Apart from the fact that
they are an insult to all those
students who are excluded
by them, these clauses reflect
upon the whole University, to
the detriment of both the Ad'
ministration and the student
body. Because we tolerate
these -expressions of racial
vanity, because our A.M.S.
which espouse them, and because the Administration refuses to take action, the public cannot but think that we
hold the views implicit in these
clauses.
It may be that frats are devoid of any commendatory
principle which justifies their
existence. Certainly it cannot be disputed that th,e high
cost of frat membership prohibits students in the lower
economic strata from participating in this aspect of college life — think of how many
are deprived of the chance to-
become I^ardi Gras King. This
sort of thing is rather out of
place on a democratic campus,
and it is evidence that the
"smell of (with tongue - in-
cheek) does actually exist. The
charge of "buying friends" appears also to be not unfounded,
for what other phrase can describe the foolish notion that
friendship can be purchased
along with a pin?
Now these considerations do
not mean that expulsion of the
frats is necessary. No one
would object to fraternities
revelling in their supposed ex-
clusiveness. We can probably
put up with their crude attempts to achieve recognition
as a superior economic caste.
But we must not tolerate their
refusal to discard from their
constitutions clauses which
testify to a bigoted belief in
the inequality of man — a
belief which not only contravenes our ideals of justice and
democracy, but flies most absurdly in the face of biology
as well.

Society Errs
Editor, The Ubyssey;
With reference to your editorial of Tuesday, January 19,
certain general principles have
been overlooked. The attention of your readers should be
drawn to the Following:
"I do not think we can ever
trust society ... to estimate
from day to day the particular
value of what we do ... Society is bound to make mistakes about the value of par-
, ticular contributions, enormously overating some and
underrating others."
Christopher Salmon in "The
Listener," Deccmeber 17, 1093.
"An Intelligent Student"

(Hike
Week
The Ubyssey sneers this
week at Boy V. Harris, member of the board of regents
of the University of Georgia.
When Georgia's student newspaper, "Red and Black," attacked racial segregation in
an editorial, Harris threatened to cut off the funds of the
"Red and Black."
Karris said, "... the university la not going to turn over
any money to the 'Red and
Black" unless the editors
change their policy."
A RASPBERRY OF THE
WEEK goes to Harris who
said that if "those sissies"
would spend their time playing football they wouldn't get
mixed up in things "that
weren't their business."
SMIL EMife
Annie And Pogo
Don't know about you but I sincerely believe that our comic
strips are due for a complete overhaul. Since one of those
"nation-wide surveys" has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt
that the comic page is the most widely-read page of your daily
newspaper, I think you'll agree with me (although I don't particularly care if you don't) that Alley Oop and Rex Morgan
M.D. should be brought up to snuff.
Already I hear a claim from the back row that our funny
papers aren't funny. That is immaterial. In an age where an
Indiana educator can seriously claim that the story of Robin
Hood should be banned from story books because it has Communistic connotations you can't expect amy thing to be funny.
"Archie" and "The Katzenjammer Kids" can plod along ln
their medieval ignorance and mirth, but » modern comic strip,
to be successful, has to be in dead, almost sadistic earnestness.
A few corpses and a subversive plot or two don't do any harm
either.
Of course there is Pogo, but there are more people who
think Pogo is childish drivel than think Albert and Co. is funny.
They're idiots, of course, these people, but they're in the
majority. And isn't that what counts?
Annie, Sandy ond Tht Asp
When you come to think of it, Al Capp, Stan Freberg and
Walt Kelly, the mastermind behind Ppgo, Churchy La Femme
and LU Grundoon, are the only people who are keeping the
Excited States of America from popping its collective marbles.
Without these three, with an assist from Abe Burrows and
Eartha Kitt, the US would crack up in a cloud of sub-committees
and television sets.
Well, to get back to the. subject, let's start with Little
Orphan Annie, the most repulsive little brat who ever breathed
democracy's sweet air. Aside from the fact that the little faker
refuses to grow up, a fact that aggravates my rheumatism, I
would gladly give my master-key to the women's dorms just to
see someone really clobber that red-haired little stinker. I have
a beautiful dream, nights after coming home from my canned-
heat hideout under the Georgia street viaduct, in which Annie
is forced to elope with a no-good Applied Science student and
meets her bitter end on a cockroach-infested bed in a Kansas
City Salvation Army home.
Daddy Sawbucks, in my dream, turns out to be Igor Oou-
zenko's brother-in-law (before the Reformation) and is shot for
smuggling hernias across the Saskatchewan-North Dakota
border. Meanwhile Punjab gets stetfed to the eyeballs on fermented jungle-juice, goes berserk ln Macy's bargain basement
and kills nine women shoppers before he is finally beheaded by
The Asp, who is a dope-peddler for Mandrake the Magician,
another of my pet slobs. The Asp is then bitten by Sandy, who
is rabid with rabies.
Does Sandy Speak German?
Now we finally get to Sandy. I like some dogs but that big
refugee from a brandy cask in the Alps is a traitor to man's
best friend. He is the most illiterate dog I have ever seen.
All he ever says is that damn "Arf." Every time Annie, in all her
pre-puberty innocence, shouts "Hark!" Sandy gives that Victor
Mature smile and grunts "Arf." There is a. possibility that he
speaks German and is just being smart by saying /woman"
backwards, but I doubt it. In my dream Sandy is tortured by a
mob of tom-cats, is ground up into Pard and fed to Smilln' Jack.
So much for the orphan.
LU' Abner, of course, can make my personal, selfish O.K.
list, but even Al Capp has diluted his genius by allowing Daisy
Mae to get her matrimonial hooks into her big stupid boyfriend.
In bis concession to the security-minded, family-conscious group
in society Capp has dealt a bitter blow to us confirmed bachelors who believed as long as Abner could fight off that delicious
hunk of female, we could endure another weekend at the Embassy.
But once Capp, no doubt busy with Fearless Fosdick,
forgot his satire for a moment and let Abner get hooked, fraternity pins and boy scout badges began to change sweaters at
an alarming rate. Capp may not realize it but he was largely
responsible for the fact that the birth rate jumped three notches
this annum.
Capp Ruin«d Us Bachelors
f Used to follow Joe Palooka when he was an AU-American
kid but onpe he started to fight Commie agents in Japan who
screamed "Achtung!" I quit and went back to Steve Canyon,
one of the best drawn strips in the business. Even though I
would like to see Canyon embarrassed just once, I like Steve, if
only for the beautifully-stacked females he has hidden just
around the next air-field.
King Aroo and Flook can be dismissed as Pogo for the
peasants while Steve Roper serves as useful wallpaper for the
Pub offices. "The fighting newspaperman" gives us hours of
kicks when we have nothing more terrifying to do than sit
around the office looking at 'tween classes notices.
Good old Mary Worth goes through life looking for adventure and always seems to find, about every three weeks, a
common, ordinary American girl, complete with 38" bust. How
an old sedate biddy like Mary keeps her self-respect around her
voluptuous companions is a mystery to me.
Terry of the Pirates, the teen-ager's Steve Canyon, has nevar
been the same since Milton Caniff left him to draw Canyon's
girlfriends. But Terry also is too busy fighting the subversive
forces behind the Iron Curtain to pay any attention to his
readers.
That's the trouble with our comic strips, they are so concerned with saving tie Free World, they've forgotten how
stupid Joe Palooka looks slugging it out with an MIG.
Now take Poko ... >'

Birds Fail In Bid For First, \nomu mm"Nm
Lose Friday To Kerries 5-1
<<
Goalie Wood Unbeatable
Leads Mates To Win
By MARTIN CHESS
A slow, start and weak attack were the Birds' downfall
as they dropped their Friday night encounter with the Kerries
5-1. \vith no excuses but these the Birds failed in their attempt
to regain the top spot in the inter-City league.
Coach Dick Mitchell was un-* —	
able to get down from the wilds
of North Vancouver, so former
mentor. Frank Fredrikson was
called out of retirement to lead
the Birds in their duel with the
Kerries.
20 AT END OF FIRST
Throughout the first period
the Birds fought desperately to
strengthen the weak and slow
attack. When the bell rang the
Birds were on the short end of
a 2-0 score.
During the ten minute intermission Coach Fredrikson tried
to prove to the tired Birds that
they were still the best team on
the ice. But they could not get
the little black disk into the
Kerrie nets in the second period. The Birds pressed the at-
tack more fiercely but goalie
Wood was able to turn Back
everything they placed at his
doorstep.
GOALIE WOOD TERRIFIC
. The Kerries managed to add
Another to their total with a
lightning fast play. When the
period ended, the Birds still
hadn't put anything on the score-
board.
The second recess gave Coach
fredrickson time to tell his Birds
exattly where they stood. They
had twenty minutes to score, at
least thre goals and that left
them little time for anything
but hard and fast play.
Alas, the poor Birds returned
to the Ice only to have the Kerries push anther goal past bewildered Don Anderson. Their
only hope now was to break the
shutout that Wood was protecting so superbly.
The Birds dominated the play
in the third period, but it wasn't
until 15:15 that Ray In» took
a short pass from Bob Gilhooley
and popped it past the amazed
George Wood.
BIRDS BREAK SHUTOUT
This score was the Birds last
Ball Games
Cancelled
By Weather
Basketball, rugby, and soccer
all had games cancelled over the
weekend because of the inclement weather.
The home and home exhibition basketball series between
the Western Washington Vikings
and the Birds was called off due
to the hazardous road conditions.
The Birds were Jioping to* use
the series to gain added experience for this week-end's road
games.*
"WIN STREAK INTACT
As was expected, Albert Laith-
waite's rugby squad didn't meet
North-Wests in the stadium Saturday. *The cancellation kept
alive the Varsity rugger team's
one game winning streak.
The Bird soccer team was unable to meet Collingwood Legion
in a 'B' Division fixture. If possible, the teams will play off
the contest this week-end. Last
week Ed Luckett acquired one
player and lost two others. Forward Bruce Madley joined the
squad and right winger Stan
Glasgow and fullback Don Ren-
ton announced their intention Of
quitting.

Never let it be said that the JVs have no fi<?ht. The junior

CARTER SCORES 30
When the pugilists were separated by the referees the gym
looked more like the Red Sea
than a basketball floor.
In what surely must be classed as the understatement of the
year, referee Gummy Leach in
his report wrote in part: "In my
opinion O'Connell was the aggressor." The BO spectators present will likely get a kick out
of that observation.

The game itself was a huge
