voted primarily to the question of
affiliation, Grant Livingstone, AMS
President, said yesterday. But students
having new business to be discussed
must present it before the council by
5:30 Monday afternoon, he added.
The resolution, which proposes, with
reservations, the affiliation of the
National Federation of Canadian University Students with the International
Union of Students, has caused considerable controversy at Canadian
universities in the past month.
While two prairie universities have
voted down the motion, feeling farther east is more in favor of affiliation.
UBC students will decide Tuesday
if NFCUS-IUS affiliation is to be approved on Canada's Pacific coast.
The resolution calls for a two year
affiliation with IUS on condition that
a thorough housecleaning of partisan
political actions is carried out by that
organiziation. If 'the conditions of
affiliation are not achieved in the two
year period, NFCUS reserves the right
to withdraw.
The  resolution  points out that the
IUS  is a  world  union having as  its
members   many   national   unions   of
Its activities, the report continues,
have not been limited to fulfilling the
common needs and aims of university
students throughout the world, but
it has participated in political objectives.
It is on condition that IUS drop
partisan political ties that NFCUS is
willing to make a long term affiliation.
President Grant Livingstone said
that a world federation of university
students dedicated to the promotion
of understanding and good will between them should be the aim of such
an affiliation.
Ballots Forged In
Alberta Elections
Edmonton, Jan. 28—(CUP)—A student whose name was withheld, secured several "A" cards which give
students voi'ing eligibility and used
thorn to cast more than one vote for
a political party during recent Mock
Parliament elections at the University of Alberta.
According to the elections rules,
"A" cards were to be presented ai'
the polls and marked before the
voter received his ballot.
Reaction of campus political leaders
was unanimous in denouncing the
misuse of voting privileges. Some
leaders expressed willingness to contest another election as a result of
the inaccurate tally.
Party heads agreed to leave investigation and further action to the
Parliamentary Committee as laid
clown in the constitution of the Political  Science Club.

Latest acquisitions of the pranksters are a pair of rare
goldfish and also a pair of indispensible eye-glasses.
Last term culprits subjected the frogs to many indescribable indignities, and now he is worried as to what will
be the fate of the goldfish.
Two hundred complete copies of
reports from Canadian observers to
IUS conventions during the past two

In the AMS office at 1 p.m. today.
It is upon these reports that NFCUS

conditionally with IUS. Council
members urge that as many students
as possible pick up these reports,
which will be loaned out for a maximum period of two days, "in order
that a wise decision be made" on

'Sororities Worst Offenders/
Says Cafeteria Manager
Habits of Caf customers have come under, fire from Cafeteria
manager Frank Underhill for the second time within a year.
Yesterday, Underhill informed The Daily Ubyssey that he
had taken action to have card playing in the Caf stopped. He
indicated that use of the overcrowded restaurant as a bridge
club should not be allowed, in his opinion.
Last Fall he complained that Oiwk*
Letter Societies were restricting the
use of Caf tables by reserving many
of them for themselves.
Sorority groups were the worst offenders, he said. However he added
that others were also guilty.
"We haven't enough room now," he
said. "Sitting there playing cards" is
not very good when we're busy."
Underhill said he had phoned AMS
President Grant Livingstone Monday
and asked to have the Discipline Committee check up on Caf card playing.
He referred to his complaint concerning reservation of tables by Greek
Letters Societies last September.
"The Discipline Committee stopped
them last Fall," he said.
Livingstone acknowledged Tuesday
that Underbill's complaint had been
brought up at Monday's Student Council meeting. The matter was tabled
and will be referred to the Discipline
Committee, he said.

Anti-red Pamphlet
Refused by U of A
Undergrad Society
Edmonton, Jan 28 — (CUP)
—The University of Alberta's PRECEDENT
Education Undergraduate Society has refused to distribute
an anti-Red pamphlet on the
campus, branding the publication, a Canadian Chamber of
Commerce pamphlet called
"The Communist Threat to
Canada," as the "rankest type
of propaganda."
The Alberta Teachers Association
had approached the Education Undergraduate Society requesting that they
distribute the pamphlets among the
Education students at the University.
In an explanatory letter published
in a recent issue of "The Gateway"
A New York booking agency offered
the speaker to the International
Relations Club, which in turn handed
the matter over to the Special Events
Committee. Spokesmen for the two
organizations pointed out that any
interested groups could sponsor the
speaker provided that they had the
$600 guarantee.

All applicants must be British subjects,  resident  in  Canada.

Graduates in Geology and Geography are offered assistantships at
Rutgers   University,   New   Jersey.
Assistantships carry a salary of
$900 - $1200 per annum and opportunity to earn a Master's degree in two
University of Alberta student newspaper, the Education Undergraduate
Society gave their reasons why ihey
refused   to concur  with  the  request.
The three main statements concerning the refusal were as follows:
1. "While the pamphlet contains a
number of facts (?), it also contains a great deal of highly questionable   reasoning.
2. "Its distribution would not be in
keeping with our training and
standards as a profession or University organization.
3. "We do not propose to be the
political tool of any organization
The society executive said that Ihe
decision was made without outside
comment or opinion and that it was
agreed after an objective analysis of
the   situation.
Though some students expressed
the opinion that they favored the
distribution of the pamphlet and thfit
the Education students were easy
subjects for lobbying left-wing groups,
it is unlikely that any other campus
group at the University of Alberta
will agree to distribute ihe anti-Red
expose,   reliable   sources   said.
Grant Livingstone, AMS president,
pointed out that policy regarding paid
political speakers was defined last November when Student Council decision was promulgated following pressure from campus political clubs.
At that time Council had undertaken to sponsor the appearance here
of Kurt von Schuschnigg, former Austrian chancellor, and then hastily retreated when campus politicians united to blast Council's stand.
In self-defence Council passed a
ruling which stated that paid lectures
could be presented by clubs but only
on presentation of a feasible plan for
the repayment of the speakers' fees.
The von Schuschnigg affair, which
drew the editorial attention of a
downtown newspaper, was Finally settled when the Newman club came
forward with a private sponsor who
was willing to underwrite the fee.

One of the least understood organizations
on the campus today is, oddly enough, a much
talked-about group known as the Undergraduate Societies Committee. At its inception, the USC was envisioned as a sort of
House of Representatives to stand in relation
to Council as the House to Cabinet.
A quick glance at the Code of the Alma
Mater Society tells us that the USC is to "promote, direct, control, and co-ordinate the
activities of the various Undergraduate Societies" and "to act as a medium through which
the undergraduate body can effectively express their views on matters important to
them as members of the AMS."
Further down, we find that the duties of
the USC includes fostering co-operation among
the Undergraduate Societies in the interests
of "successful prosecution of drives, benefits
and schemes affecting the undergraduate
A further duty is the setting up of standing committees for action in discipline, financing and other aspects of the university
life, essential to a smooth running student
government. •
The measure to which the Undergraduate
Societies Committee has succeeded in carrying out these objects and duties is somewhat
doubtful, although it is readily conceded that
tihe actions of this group have been of value
in the past.
Perhaps one of the first ways that USC
could be helped to its rightful position of
recognition would be to add some prestige
to the body through the election of its president on the same slate as the president and
treasurer of the Students' Council. At present,
the office is filled during the third period of
elections along with the presidents of WUS,
LSE, WAA, and MAD.
It is unfortunate that it is too late this
year to see what kind of an effect this move
would have on the actions of what could be a
very important body. There seems to be
very little reason why USC should not be
free of council domination. This does not
appear to be the case at this time.
One more suggestion might be in ordar.
A fundamental step in thorough going public
relations of USC would be a change in the
name of the body. Perhaps a more impressive
and logical label would be simply the "Board
of Representatives." It must be admitted that
the "Undergraduate Societies Committee"
sounds like a cozy little gathering of minute
readers to the average student. Perhaps
such an ominous-sounding name as that suggested would do the trick.
At any rate, it ia plain that something
has got to be done about USC, if only to on-
sure something better than a 30% turnout
at their meetings.
The Children's Hour
A lonely traveller upon the vast Sahara
of sadness that is our lot, your Uncle was
jogging along last week, following in the footprints of a lurching humanity in the sands of
time, when he came upon signs of a scuffle
in the desert.
Judging by the number of splintered adjectives lying around, it was clear that the
Universmitybastids, a wild and woolly tribe of
desert Bedouins, had passed this way. An
old file of Daily Ubysseys revealed that Sheik
el Grant Livingstone, their elected chieftain,
had been doing some disciplinary smiting.
And a large puddle of crocodile tears nearby
showed clearly that those professional tribal
weepers, the eLPP's, had also been involved.
A second puddle, composed of real tears,
showed that other members of the Universmitybastids, seeing their chieftain smiting the
eLPP's hip and thigh, had broken into sobs.
Well, if this little note, sealed in a beer
bottle and left in the desert, ever reaches
them, this is to tell them not to worry; and
certainly not to waste real, honest tears anymore, when eLPP's get smacked on their bottoms and break into crocodile tears of self-
pity. You can't hurt an eLLP by hitting him
with the flat side of an adjective.
You"ll have to take your uncle's word
for that. Long ago (when he was very young,
indeed) he used to be a Socialist, given to
prove that if there was any evil in this world,
it was the fault of The System. tfc? even tried
to blame his own bummy condition in life on
the fact that he was a Victim of the System.
This was too much for his stomach, however, and he stopped being a Socialist. Before
his stomach gave way under what he was
trying to feed it, he met a lot of Commies (be-
'fore they became eLPP's, and he, too, did a
lot of weeping.
He wept over the thought of the starved,
Victims of The System, lying in cheap coffins
with the heelmarks of capitalists stamped all
over their pale, pinched faces; he wept over
Sacco-Vanzetti; Scott Young; Upton Sinclair
in the Jungle; the innocent victims of Hay-
market Square; and near laid himsef out with
crying every time the editors of Commie publications rolled up the shirts of Earl Browder
and Norman Thomas to show the red weals
that unkind adjectives had left on the backs
of these two worthies.
Before he stopped weeping, he learned
that the Commies (who apparently have much
stronger stomachs than he) were the most
scrofulous little bunch of hypocrites that this
world, at least, has ever seen.
He learned that the Commies revel in the
soapy suds of an illusory persecution the way
that a movie star soaks up a bubble bath.
They take it like dope because it makes them
feel important. They couldn't get along without it. And if there isn't a real half-grain of
persecution around, they'll do anything to
get the jolt that a sense of persecution brings.
That explains such tipsy spectacles as
eLLP's standing up, well-fed and rosy, in a
campus lecture room which is heated, supplied and booked regularly for their use by an
oppressor govmint, to cry in all seriousness
that there is no freedom of speech and only
freedom to starve.
Madness? No - merely the narcotic of the
delusion of persecution - plus, sometimes, the
calculated promotion of dissatisfaction, in
order that they may sell you the salve for the
itch they are trying to promote. Not man
enough to admit that some things may be his
own fault, your Commie naturally yelps of
persecution at every earned reproof.
Figure it out yourself. When a Commie,
inside or outside of veteran's organizations,
demands that the government make sharp
increases in pensions and allowances, he makes
it - not for the benefit of the persons concerned - but in the knowledge that Parliament
is not prepared to grant that amount, and in
the hope of promoting disaffection amongst
veterans when Parliament does the expected
and turns it down. That way, he has everything to gain, and nothing to lose.
So weep no more, dear Universmitybastids, when the crocodile tears begin to fall.
The "witch-hunting" you decry is a wonderful
term - a wonderful propaganda term. Nobody
likes anybody who would drag out an innocent lady and burn her at the stake for
what she is supposed to believe.
As he leaves this scuffle upon the sands,
your Uncle, from his own experience with
the maggotty habits of his old Commie comrades in arms, can only wonder that el Livingstone held his temper as long as he did. And
why so many good, honest tears should fall
after the crocodile ones.
Which to Destroy?
In reply to the report appearing
in Wednesday's Ubyssey regarding
my verbal battle with Mr. Shulman I wish to clarify the report
which appeared in the Ubyssey.
My question arising out of the
speech given by Mr. Shulman
originated from the remarks on
the advantages of a planned economy under Marxian doctrines. One
specific instance of his speech
dealt with the capitalist practice
of destroying tons of foodstuffs
and how this practice would be
eliminated under a planned economy.
My chief question dealt with the
contrast of destroying food in a
capitalistic economy and the liquidation of the peasant class in
Soviet Russia who refused to surrender their grain to the Soviet
All I wanted was an answer
from Mr. Shulman as to the relative merits of the Russian system
of destroying people and our own
system of destroying food. My
question arose from the speech of
Mr. Shulman and was not as reported, an attempt to switch the
topic under discussion to that of
alleged mass murders.
I attended the discussion as an
individual and not as the accredited representative of the Newman
Club. If I was speaking for my
club officially I would have said

Social Stability
Dear Sir:
Mr. Tupper gives us to understand that he has been filled with
nausea and alarm to no small
degree by Harold Winch's suggestion that we must combat delinquency with eugenics and sterilization. Mr. Tupper has been reminded of Huxley's reeking brave
new world - prematurely aged
by his years with the air force
he shambles away muttering between ashen lips.
But if Mr. Tupper will take a
second look at Brave New World
he will find that Huxley is not
laying bare the Perils of Socialism,
but is describing the inevitable
consequence of devotion to the
maintenance of social stability—of
the status quo, Mustapha Mond
is the acme of consistent Conservatism.
Within recent years the English
psychologist, Sir Cyril Burt, has
pointed out that natural selection
and the absence of large families
among the more intelligent members of the community is leading
to a general lowering of the level
of intelligence. The English geneticist, JBS Haldane, claims that,
without some eugenic measures
the human species is going to
evolve backwards instead of forwards. But Mr. Tupper is nauseated.
There is only one solution. Will

Student Apathy
Dear Sir:
In the column 'Letters to the
Editor' many students have complained about the apathy of our
present and past student bodies.
To those 'go-getters' I would like
to point out that the history of
this campus since Hie time of the
'Trek' has been well marked with
periods of apathy.
Many of us—I include myself—
travel out to the Mall for the strict
purpose  of learning.  It takes all
our time  to  absorb our lectures
and that, to us, is more important
than  someone's  political  infancy.
This semester I am studying one
subject, in the hospital, and so at
this time take the opportunity to
thank you,  the editorial staff of
the paper, and the fairer half of
the Legion for keeping me posted
on the affairs, whether they are,
to me, large or small, in their influence on your future and mine.
Not so long ago we had a purpose, whether to fight or study.
It seems that some of us have lost
our drive for the sake of a little
backscratching. Why not step reflecting petty world politics and
show them how to get on with the
job, and that for us is a mite, a
'■ small instant of study.
'Immoral' Statement
Dear Sir:
In regard to your indelible, nefarious typographical error, or libelous misquotation, I wish to

Such a word as 'immoral' was
lost in my finer views. However
the statement as it appears in your
worthy publication can not be
thoroughly denied by such an inadequate observer as myself. It
was a grand error, but please—not
with my name.

Space Given To Livingstone Tiff
Unwarrenfed, Says Reader Ewan
ED. NOTE: The following is
reprinted from a previous Issue in
order to correct several mlslm-
pressions left through the unfortunate advent of a typographical
error. Of the letter itself we would
point out that while we concour
we think it in the students' Interest
to keep them informed on the
activities of their elected leader.
Dear Sir:
You have extended improper
service to Mr. Livingstone. The
front page prominence given Tuesday (Jan. 13) to his vitriolic attack upon unnamed UBC person
alities    was    completely   unwar-
Does he have free use of your
space to shout "They are murdering me!" while he twists the
knife among the ribs of someone else's character?
Mr. Livingstone has not yet refuted the charge quoted on this
campus, not by communist rumor-
mongers, but by our own publication. A repetition of all the
anti-communist nonsense to which
we have been subjected since the
close of the late war docs not constitute  a  reply  to  anything,   nor
a condemnation of anyone. Mr.
Livingstone's deft use of the word
"liar" in the best tory ward-man
tradition as a substitute for a
proper and decent reply is all the
assassination of his own character
he need look for.
At the general meeting of Branch
72 held in December the entire
emphasis of Livingstone's contribution to the formulation of the
branch resolution was that its demand (read urgent request) should
be limited to assistance for student
vets with unemployable dependents. The NCSV does not concur,
as   Don   Lanskail   ably   reported,
but asks for that which will fill
the needs of the present situation—
a cost of living bonus. Does Mr.
Livingstone feel that the NCSV
has again been irrational? They
were irrational last year, were
they not? Mr. Livingstone said
so at the same meeting.
If Mr. Livingstone feels the need
to relieve himself of such stuff,
let him hire a hall. I don't think
that the students' interests are
served by employing Ubyssey
space in such manner.

HAL MURPHY, Acting Sports Editor
In spite of the absence of several of our editors, who 'ire
busy putting out the sports page at the University of Washington
this week, this department is besieged on all sides by fans and
their comment. Today's mail brought an interesting note from
a hockey enthusiast.
Dear Sirs:
After witnessing Sunday's hockey game in which New
Westminster Cubs defeated UBC, I feel compelled to complain
against the rough tactics and biased refereeing which took the
heart out of the UBC team. Our team should be commended
for putting up such a good fight against impossible odds. Orchids
to Haas Young, who returned his share of blows in two fights.
The bad calls against Hugh Berry, Terry Nelford and Haas
Young make it imperative that our team have the full support
of all fair-minded UBC students in Wednesday's return match.
Come out and make revenge sweet for Frank Frederickson and
our game team
Yours sincerely,
H. Frydenlund, Arts 2.
iO these senous charges the campus can by no means remain indifferent. This department felt that it would be in the
interests of all Blue and Gold fans to publish the following
answer, written by hockey writer Fred Moonen. Fred has been
to most of the UBC hockey tilts this season and is, in our
opinion, well qualified to comment on the blade boys activities.
Dear H. F. and Readers:
In replying to your letter I can only say that I echo your
sentiments entirely. I might also add a plug to yours, and urge all
students to make the trip out to the Forum tonight. Let me
assure all those that do, that they will witness a first class hockey
game, with a good deal more spirit and vigour than that seen
in many leagues of so-called higher calibre. The 'Birds have been
playing hockey since early fall, and with the exception of one
'big' night last November, they have been playing without a
great deal of support from the student body. So, I repeat,
come out to the Forum tonight at 9 to see the game of the year.
Remember, its a grudge battle between the 'Birds and the
Cubs, and promises to be a real tilt.

READY—Action aplenty awaits hoop fans at the Gym tonight
when UBC Chiefs tackle the home-coming Clover Leafs at 8:30.

Chiefs Meet Clover Leafs
In All-Important Contest
Just how hot are the Clover Leafs and how much good (or
bad) did their Phillipine trip do them? These are the questions
that run through the minds of the UBC Chiefs as they prepare
to tangle with the Dominion champions tonight at 8:30 p.m. in
the campus gym.
Actually the contest should be the*	
best Senior A tilt run off this year,
and although the Students will probably trot onto the maples as under
dogs in the betting, more than a few
canny   observers  give  them   an  even
chance to take this one.
Although the trip was good for them
theoretically, the Leafs are undoubtedly very tired. Added to this is the
fact that Wedensday's game will be
their second in as many nights; both
of them without ace pivotman Olie
Bakken who remained behind in San
Francisco for a while.
On the other hand the Chiefs have
never been in better shape and their
record shows it. The Students have
five straight wins to their credit including a victory over the league-
leading Luckies.
Another bright spot on the Blue and
Gold Horizon is the fact that veteran
guard and ace scorer Freddie Bossons
will be back in strip.
Bossons was forced to leave Saturday's game at Chilliwack early in the
first quarter after in jurying his back,
and for a time it looked as if he
might not be able play for some time.
However, latest reports state that Bossons is well on the road to recovery
and will definitely be back at his
rearguard position alongside cohort
Bobby Boyes.
Holding clown the Chiefs first string
forward line will be the Indian's three
freshman wonders Art Phillips, Robin
Abercrombie and Chuck Raitt.
The match starts at 8:30 p.m. in the
UBC gym with a prelim, game getting
away at 7 p.m.
Smith Wins OC Shield
For Second Time Sun.
Slogging over an icy course in 33
minutes and 35 seconds, Harry Smith
club president, became the first VOC
member to win the Club Shield twice,
Last Sunday, twenty five hardy
outdoorsmen undertook the exhausting race. Starting at the end of
Thunderbird ridge, the competitors
climbed to the peak of Sam, ran
the Dana downhill on shaky legs and
climbed Grouse from the rear. Careening down from the peak of Grouse,
they crossed the Plateau and finished
at the old VOC hut below the road.
Smith's time was close to the 33
minute record set by Fred Roots in
1946. Jim Aitken and Bob Christie
placed second and third, respectively,

'Bird Pucksters Meet Cubs
Tonight In Grudge Battle
The battle between the New Westminster Cubs and UBC
Thunderbirds scheduled to go at the Forum tonight at 9, has
taken on all the aspects of a first class grudge meeting. After
last Sunday's fiasco at Queen's Park Arena against this same
club, and the referee to boot, Frank Frederickson's boys are
going all out to garner a win against the first-place New Westminster outfit
Smarting from the set-back that they
were handed Saturday night on the
UBC maples at the hand of a Seattle
College quintette, the Thunderbirds
are steadily prepping for a two game
series with Portland College this
Here for two games Friday and
Saturday night, the powerful independent Portland squad has had an
Impressive record so far this year.
Typical of this is the 82-43 shellacking
that they handed Whitman College
two nights ago.

In Varsity Minors
Minor League hoopers saw
action a-plenty on the campus
Monday night as the Inter A
jolds waltzed to a 45-25 wm
over an Acadia Senior B quintet, and a spirited Inter A
White team came from behind
in the last seconds to edge the
Sciencemen 40-36.
In the initial contest of the evening,
the Golds held only a slim 8-7 lead at
the quarter. However they forged
ahead and lead 18-10 at the half time
breather. Coming back after the
"pause that refreshes", the Golds added another 10 points to their score.
In the last quarter the Acadians made
a vain attempt to gain leadership but
fell short of the mark. Final score
was 45-25.
Holding a 9-6 lead at the quarter
and stretching it to a 19-14 margin at
the half, the Golds seemed well on
their way. However, an inspired
Science team came back to catch the
Whites and lead 36-35 with a scant
45 seconds to go. Just then the Whites
turned on the heat that paid off.
Denny Wotherspoon lofted a long one-
hander to put the Inter A boys in
front by one point. Seconds later Billy
Walker scored on a fast breaking
lay-up and Hugh Rae followed with
a scored gratis throw. Some 20 seconds remained and the die was cast.
Whites won 40-36.
The team will be at full strength
for the game tonight, with House in
goal, Nelford and Saunders on one
defense and Wilde and Hughes on the
other. Three forward lines will probably see action, with the make-up
of the third still in doubt.
Haas Young, Fred Andrew and
Hugh Berry will go into the game as
the first attacking unit, with the
second line of Koch, Wagner and
Torfason another sure bet to see
plenty of ice.
The third line is still tentative, with
Lerbeckno and Rowledge flanking
either Mac Porteous or Gus Reid. The
latter has been on the injured list for
the last couple of weeks, and Porteous
has been filling in at centre. If Reid
is fit to play he probably will, thus
allowing Mac to take up his managerial duties once more.
Team members stated after the game
last weekend that penalties killed
them. The Cubs rapped in their winning tallies while the 'Birds were two
men short.
Haas Young who was the 'Birds bad
boy in the last tilt when he garnered
9 minutes in penalties, for partaking
in various skirmishes with Wright of
the Cubs, should be red-hot in tonight's contest and the Cubs will have
to watch him. Rumour hath it that
Wright still carries scars from his last
meeting with 'One Punch', and will
not lead with his chin if he boards
any more 'Birds.
Unless something unforeseen occurs,
such as the Birds running out of
steam in the third period, as has happened in several of their previous
tilts, UBC students who witness the
contest tonight will have a victory
to shout about.

Tennis Singles Open Tournament are advised that the deadline on all first-round matches
