VOC Plans Return
Garibaldi Trip
. Enthusiastic reports brought back
by members of the Outdoor club who
took part in last year's trip to Garibaldi Park have resulted in plans
.being made for another trip at the
conclusion of exams this year, say
club officials.
Plans are also being made by Peter
I, Vajda, Varsity's ski coach, for the
production of a ski instruction film
during the trip.
Campus skiers will go into the Diamond Head area for about a week, according to present plans.   All supplies
Vancouver   and   Victoria."   stated   Dr.

Red Cross Drive
Fails On Campus
Last call for blood is at 3:30 this
afternoon. After operating all week
in the Reading Room behind Brock
Hall, the clinic will leave Saturday
for Victoria, according to Dr. Rice,
head of Canadian Red Cross blood
transfusion service.
The mobile clinic leaves this weekend for Victoria whore 300 donors are
/waiting to give blood. The clinic will
return to the campus in the Fall. Dr.
Rice believes this will, be a "more
favorable'' time for students.
Original plan of the clinic-was to
operate for three weeks on the cant-
pus. "W_ need 100 donors a day for
five   days   to   meet   requirements   fc r ' are   to   be   packed   in   by   the  hikers,
,hence stamina rather than proficiency

Alma Mater Society Meeting
Will Discuss Policy Trends
People around the AMS office
these days are wondering just
when Men's Athletic Directorate
and Discipline Committee officials
will swoop In and carry off AMS
President Ted Kirkpatrick.
The worries started as soon as
it was learned that President
Kirkpatrick had violated Article
24 of the Code by playing for a

delegates to the conference announced yesterday that official ballots
.should be on hand in time for the
AMS meeting. Each student will be

approval or disapproval for the numerous Issues agreed on at the conference.
After the 75,000 students represented by the conference have giver,
their opinions on the resolutions two
delegates will be ekcted to carry

bly of the United Nations when it

MAD Campaigning
For Arts Sweaters
Requests by tho Men's Athletic
Directorate for a distinctive sweater
ind the placing of a trophy case in
Brock Hall are now under discussion
by Student Council, according to Don
McRae, AMS treasurer.
The Arts sweater is essentially the
.University sweater, but MAD wants
a sweater on which to wear minor
emblem, ho said. A change in design
will rest on student opinion, he added
Legion Canteen
Open Evenings   .
The Legion Canteen will be open
j until 9:45 p.m., commencing this Monday, in order to meet the needs of
students and faculty who remain on
the campus to work in the evenings,
canteen officials announced yesterday.
Now hours will now be: Monday to
Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 p.m., and
Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Four items affecting the trends of next year's student administration and policy will likely come before the student body at
the spring general meeting of the Alma Mater Society, to be
held next Thursday, March 20, in the stadium at 11:30.
These items include the question of appointing a general
manager for AMS, the possible abolition of a Women's Athletic
Representative on Council, the advisability of revising or abolishing Article XXIV, and the question of floating a bond issue
to start the War Memorial Gym.
The administration has been asked to cancel 11:30 lectures
for the meeting.
The question  of appointing a gen-fy-	
eral manager, will be dealt with in
the report of the treasurer, Don McRae. It is expected that McRae will
neither oppose nor support the issue
but in all probability it will be both
attacked and defended on the floor.
The report of the Constitution Revision Committee will deal with the
possible abolition of the Women's Athletic Association representative on the
Council. In the release of its report
several weeks ago, the Revision Committee recommended that ene person
represent both men's and women's
athletics, instead of representatives
from  both  MAA  and WAA  now in j
existence. I
Although not formally introduced J
into their report, the Revision Committee discussed the possibility of
creating a new position on Council—
that of vice-president—to maintain the
present number of council members.
His duties, it was suggested, would
not be defined strictly, but would
consist of generally easing the duties
of the president and other council
members. It is not yet known whether this measure will be introduced
at the general meeting.
The possible revision or abolition of
Article XXIV will also be brought up,
in the report of the Men's Athletic
Another possibility of importance to
students will be the floating of a
bond issue to make a start on the War
Memorial Gym. Bob Harwood, 1947-
1948 treasurer on the Council, explained Wednesday that the issue
might not come up unless it was decided to make a start on construction
of the gym before next year's first
general meeting.
Other matters that may come up at
tlie meeting are the appointment of
next year's auditors for the AMS, a
referendum on the resolutions of tlie
Pacifie Northwest College Congress.
Appointment of next year's auditors will be dealt with in McRae's
report, and the PNCC referendum will
likely be conducted by Bob Harwood.

Councilors Express Opinion On Proposal For AMS Business Manager
]'c. ctien to the prope.-aU to obtain
Ilia se ev ices, of a full time business
manager for the Alma Mater Society
ceh.tes considerable controversy
(.'; in on < tlieied Ly The Ubyssey
.va..ii". ; a i ; ii i in oi t student officials on
the v. hole definitely favors the ap-j
i ai'.itnicnt.
X e-ea'cssii ns    vary     from     the J
e.bao.ut.. support stated by Dave
Williams, President of the Parliamentary Forum through hike warm
acceptance of some, te the outright
oppisilion of Ted Kirkpatrick. AMS
Willi ms, interviewed Wednesday
stated that he thought It was an
"excellent idea. I think the criticism . . . (lessening of control on
the part of Council) ... i.s all nonsense. So long as council has the
right to pass and administer its own
policy there is absolutely no reason
a business manager should become
autocratic. |
"This  being  the  only  criticism   in- !
dicatcs that its opponents are unable
to deny the practical advantages of
i.ii office manager, which are m my."
A similar opinion is supported by
tlit- present chairman of the Under-
a'i'duala Soeieties Committee, Bill
McKay, who said, "I have considered 1'iis matter very carefully and feel
that despite tlie fondness I have for
tlie AMS office staff, and despite the
mi:' rtimate fact that they appeal
to be t.iking personal affront, I
Waiiid not be fab- to my fellow stu-
■ I '.-.Is er te myself if I did not say
what I have decided from my own
Council experience, that this move
has been delayed long enough.''
Taddy Knapp, tho now AMS secretary, said, "I absolutely support
it. It would greatly contribute to
-- '.ooth running office." She also
hoped that it would cause no ill
feeling  in  the  office  staff.
Keith Macdonald, present Men'.'
Athletic Association president, sup-,
"arts the idea. "Things seem good
now but the appointment of an office    manager    would    establish    the
ecminuity   th it  the  office  needs,"  he
i'.i.'i Bagnall. the new Coordinator
of   b.ctiv.iies   supports   this   view,
"I wi uld welcome a business man-
•■ : '-r to avoid confusion in the AMS
office and bring about a smoother
functioning council for next year."
he   stated,
Rosemary Hodgins. the new chairman of the USC i.s another strong
supporter of the idea, "1 am definitely for it." she stated. "It would
'■really increase tho efficiency of
the system to have somebody in the
office with a good overall picture
of the student situation while th.
girls have their particular duties to
look   after.
"The editor of The Ubyssey, and
tha president of the AMS are the
only ones with a proper overall
knowledge of the situation at all
times,"   she   concluded.
Fr.ink Phillips. Commerce Undergraduate Society president, believes
that  "we   would  lose   control   of  af-
f i.s to e.n extent, but this would
! .". eiy depend on the man whe
t Is in and the calibre of the council
in   power.
" ' he AMS i.- now big business and
". f.iiiiie. e'a ser attention th'n th.
'. ";■' ■ student is able to give it as
a Council member. We should bo
■ b, • tii have a manager to take the J iLclinei
b d from Council members without
having him encroaching too much on
th policies and it would make a
' '.■ 'e efficient administration." he
Further support is received from
the pr sidents of the University
Radio Society and the Players Club.
Rw Poinult, URS proxy, .stated
"A man trained for the AMS would
b. good. He would be able to devote
lis whole time to his duties and
carry  over  from   year  to  year."
Bev Wilson, president of the Players Club, thinks that "a control is
desirable for the amount of money
handled by tha AMS." She also suggested a short contract to facilitate
control   by  the  Council.
Donegani, present AMS secre-
t.iy. thinks that "for efficiency';
sake, it might be a good idea. Over
a I cried of years lie may not have
llii' i ight attitude and gradually Ink
over   from   Council."

There's much to concern every UBC student who pays fifteen dollars to the AMS—
and that's just about everyone—coming up at
next Thursday's annual meeting.
The likely agenda lists four or five items
which should provide interest and argument
for everyone.
For example, there's the proposal to employ
a full-time AMS business manager.
Then there's the possibility that Article 24
of the Code—under which students may be
disciplined for playing for non-university teams
—will be up for abolition or revision.
It's also expected that someone will urge
implementation of the recommendation to
abolish the Women's Athletic Association post
on Student Council.
Add to those the PNCC referendum on world
affairs and the possibility of approving a bond
issue for the Memorial Gymnasium and there's
sufficient reason for every normally intelligent
UBC student to take in the meeting.
The Children's Hour
Good morning, you dolorous little dedelicts.
Well, kiddies, we hate to do this, but for
reasons quite beyond our control we are unable to bring you today, as was promised, the
Little Essay on Growing Things, or, How You
Got Here, Baby Dear.
We're dreadfully sorry, because it promised
to be a simply smashing effort, and revelatory
as anything, my deal's.
Because we tired of being patted on the
back by greying blondes who said: "Didn't
your father tell you about the flowers and
the bees, sonny?" we were determined that
you kiddies would start out in life with a
fighting chance. Now we find out that we can't
lay it on the line for you.
You see, even the flowermen and the bee-
men, when you come to grips with them,
give you the same old double-talk. Double-
talk? Make that quadruple-talk, and you'll be
lucky if you recognize the conjunctions. Take
this fair sample from the primer: ELEMENTARY BOTANY" (Percy Groom, M.A. Cantab
et Oxon., F.L.S.) and you'll understand why
we are unable to Tell you All,
"... in most flowering plants, whilst the
embryo-sac, the contained endosperm, and the
embryo are growing, the nucellus is being
absorbed by th .m, and not a trace of it remains in the mature seed. In some plants the
nucellus is not'entirely absorbed, but persists
and forms an endosperm-layer within the testa;
this is termed the perisperm—e.g. Stellaria (eel.
note: (hanks) th,e testa is formed by the growth
and hardening 'of the integument or integuments, and the "micropyle of the seed represents the micropyle of the ovule. The funicie
or stalk of the seed is identical with the funicie
of the ovule ..."
Simple,- isn't it? Can't you just see Father
rattling that off to young Horace? Why, the
Old Man would trip over his nucellus before
he got halfway there. If the lad didn't brain
him with a heavy candlestick first. But let us
"... Herbs, often with stiff hairs. Leaves
alternate, entire, exstipulate. Inflorescence, a
scorioid cyme. Flowers regular, cyclic, hypo
gynous. Sepals five, gamosepalous. Petals five,
gamopetalous. Stamens five, epipetalous. Carpels two, syncarpous, superior; ovary four-
lobccl, divided into four chambers each containing one ovule; style one, inserted between
the four lobes of the ovary. Fruit a schizocarp
separating into four nutlets."
Well, I bet you'd never guess what that is.
Give up? That's a plain old forget-me-not
(myosotis), you dope. And it just had quadruplets while you sat there and looked at it.
Didn't recognize it, eh? Well, try this one on
your schizocrap:
"... Perennial herbs with rhizomes or
sorms. Flowers usually regular, cyclic, epigy-
nous, conspicuous. Perianth 3 f 3, petaloid.
Stamens three, with extror.se anthers. Carpels
three syncarpous; ovary three-chambered, with
many ovules on axile placentae; stigmas three.
Fruit a capsule."
Oh, come on, now—you can get that one.
That capsule business gives it dead away. This
is just a plain, .simple story of birds and flowers,
you know. Don't recognize it? Why, that's the
crocus  family, you goon.
Well,  if you don't get  it,  you don't  get  it.

Reply To Marsh
To answer the comment of Leonard C. Marsh, Ph.D., re
"Bolshevist 'ideology" in your issue of Februray 25th, might I
say that, when hearings on the Wagner Health Bill were given
at Washington, Dr. Heyd, then president of the American Medical Association, directed the attention of the Committee to the
Goldstein Health Bill introduced in the Assembly of the State
of New York, and stated: "In 1933, while in Moscow, 1 heard
the identical words of that paragraph from the Assistant Commissar of Health."
As he classifies the British system as "liberal and democratic", I will quote an authority, the former Lord Chief Justice
of England, who, in referring to state sickness insurance in his
book "The New Depositism" says: "Why should the rules and
regulations be made behind the back of Parliament? Why,
being so made they beg the question of ultra vires by taking to
themselves the force of the statute itself? And why should
the whole scheme and system be so contrived as to oust the
superintendence and jurisdiction of the Courts? The complaint
is not that the rules and regulations are made, though they are
made, to be sure, in the most embarrassing multiplicity. The
complaint is that they are made at a stage, in such a form, and
in such circumstances as to deprive, at one and the same time,
both Parliament and the Law Courts of any real authority in
relation to them. The citizen is delivered over to the department.
The department becomes judge in its own cause. And the
measure which produces these results is itself the handiwork
of the department. More than that, the method is not occasional
nor sporadic. It has become quite systematic. The conclusion
is irresistible that it is manifestly the offspring of a well thought
out plan, the object and the effect which are to clothe the
department with despotic powers.
At no time did I state that the Marsh Report recommended
direct employment of physicians by the State as Dr. Marsh
infers. I pointed out that state controls over physician and
patient would be exercised by indirect means, such as Acts
of Parliament and governing bureaucratic regulations plus the
control exercised over the money taxed from the people.
While Dr. Marsh suggests it. is bad form to make personal
references, I would remind him that the democratic process
places responsibility upon the individual for his actions. This
leads to further comment upon the international inspiration
and instruction of planners. When the German international
financier, Sir Ernest Cassel, subsidized the London School of
Economics to the extent of £250,000 he was reported by the
"Quarterly Review", of January, 1929, as stating to Lord
Haldane; "Our object is to make this institution a place to
raise and train the bureaucracy of the future Socialist State."
The Marsh Report provides ample evidence of his training there.
Its objective is centralized control of the medical profession and
the people. Its policy is one of rewards and "punishments under
control of bureaucrats. Its philosophy is that man is a mechanism, not an organism.
'What Every Woman Knows'
Week-end Review
And Preview
This week I've been confusing myself with Russian films. The advertisement of the Russian films at
the Lyric thealiv sent me off there
in some hope of seeing at least one
decent  fcatuiv  length  film.
The program beg.tn with W. Disney's "Pluto Junior", with no Russian dialogue which I could detect,
unless the 'excitable doings on the
clothesline were conducted in Russian The next article to appear
was a Leon Errcl short, in which
he looked completely American, and
proceeded to sound deplorably so
When the usual marital mixup was
separated out according to the usual
noisy pattern I was almost worn
Cut the next item was finally
Russian - a short fairy tale, "Christmas Slippers", with music by Tschai-
kowsky, and some quite adequate
singing. The American element was
still present, by suggestion at least,
in the black super-devil who took
the blacksmith Valuka on his back
and soared a la superman through
the air  to the court of  the Empress.
After this came a number of "acts"
grouped under the title, 'Moscow
Music Hall" which while using to
some extent the formal tradition of
the music hall was almost completely without its sointimes saving grace
of human comedy. However it was
the final film (for whose evenlu il
arrival I had endured the others)
which completed the work of confusing me which they had so ably
This one was called "Moscow on
Parade" and started with a colorful
survey of llu* Red Square during tho
May Day celebrations in 1945. The
verb "started" i.s misleading, since
it continued with the same survey,
and finished some hour and a quarter   later   with   the   same   thing.
It finished at any rate without me.
I had sat; staunchly through almost
an hour of il. thinking every minute
it woud end and something really
Russian would biggin Certainly this
picture of Ihe many peoples comprising lht> democratic experiment
of the USSR was one I personally
saw with e'ome interest. But. this
inlcru.'l would have boon satisfied
wilh    1.5   minutes   of     "Moscow     on
) Parade" and its protracted length
brought on my recurrent foolish
fears   for   the   future  of  art.
It seems to me that the essence
of art, its close relation to living,
it.-i enrichment and intensification
ef living itself, are no longer present
in the art of a decadent capitalism
visibly operating around us. The
slave-decorative position of the artist in relation to the blank lives of
the capitalist-rich and of the almost
equally blank lives of the capitalist-
poor, the bourgeois misunderstanding
of the necessity for creation at the
core of living, and the exclusive
ingrowing intellectual elite at tht
top of the Art-Heap, have all made
me turn with hope to the socialist
ideal of man in his relation tc
society as used by Rivera to illum-
:n te the meaningful murals he
paints, and which was once to be
found in the Russian film. Such
films as "Chapayev", "The Gypsies",
and "Baltic Deputy" I can see as
the early b dlad art of a new world
However within the past two years
I've seen two Russian musical comedies a la Hollywood, and now this.
11 is just conceivable, of course, that
these fiims were made for export,
to a public whose general level of
taste has been gauged only too well.
But this cannot continue. If it docs
il will stamp out. the hopeful expectations of many who like myself,
went to the Lyric this week, and
instead of bread were given the usual
Hollywood-processed stones.
In order to end this diatribe on
a slightly happier note, there is news
of a new Russian film being commercially distributed in the States,
called "The Stone Flower", a fairy
tale in colour, which the New Yorker
has recently lauded.
And around town soon will be
two things worth looking out for:
i'ii U,   Tennessee  Williams'   play   "The
Glass    Mnnagerio"    at    the— — 	
on   March    and   second,   again
at the Lyric, but this time the really
excellent Italian film "Open City",
made since the war in Italy with
Kng'lish .sub-titles by the Italian

7,  8,  9th.

I should first like to express to the editor my sincere appreciation for the honor of being selected to write under the above
title; I might also voice my disappointment and a slight complaint
that the honor didn't include a complimentary bottle of Milord
Calvert. Seriously, however. 1 welcome the opportunity to
deliver a blast at campus apethy.
The greatest menace to our system^
of   free   democracy   is   neither   the
treacherously militant totalitarianism
of the Marxists nor any potential
revival of its right-wing opposite, fascism, but is an apparently prevailing
post-war spirit of complacency, selfishness, and laziness; in a word,
No totalitarian party could make
any headway in a free and freedom-
loving country if its citizens were
aware of their priceless heritage of
liberty, and their personal responsibility in preserving it. Danger to
our freedom exists only in our persistant refusal to accept this responsibility.
Democracy was defined by Lincoln
ra government of the people (which
any government must be), for the
people (which all governments claim
to be), and BY the people. This last
is democracy's unique, distinction
from any other major political system
in the modern world. "Government
by the people" expresses the wide difference in philosophy .outlook and
method that exists between democracy and totalitarian concepts.
Personal liberty depends on "Government by the people"; that is, by
every one of us. Society demands
government for justice, security, and
progress. Government must have
power; insofar as men surrender power to an individual, party, or a group,
they a^o surrender their freedom.
In our society, we are the governors
as well as the governed, for we do not
surrender, but rather delegate, authority over us We subject the individual, or party, or group to whom
we delegate this power, to rigid regulation and scrutiny. Further, we
jealously retain a large measure of
our freedom i.e. authority over our
conduct, unto ourselves.
If this delegation of authority is not
to become surrender, then we must
keenly feel and constantly remember
that "eternal vigilance is the price of
freedom." By the same token we must
faithfully execute our individual responsibilities to society, if we are to be
worthy of freedom. If we are not
worthy of it, and if we do not guard
it jealously, we shall lose it.
Observe; In the last month our own
University has given us several typical examples of this fatal lack of responsible citizenship. Less than half
of our voting population is interested
in the control of student government.
The International Student Service appealed for $800 from this campus. To
date they 'have received barely a
tenth of this sum. Clubs and other
organizations on this campus can rely
on perhaps a quarter of their membership for any effective action for
any conceivable purpose. So, democracy in 1947!
Do you value freedom? Then remember this; freedom, justic, peace
and progress, depend not on some
mythical "they", not on "George", not
on some abstract ''government'; in a
democracy, whose government is its
people, these great ideals depend on
every individual citizen,

-, This university is one of the more
1^ fortunate in Canada in that it has a
special department of Slavonic studies. Although the department is yet
in its infancy, there is a plan for
future expansion which will greatly
jt assist in the study of one of the
largest single racial groups of the
wetern   world—the   Slavs.
It is significant of the importance
placed upon such a study by prominent world figures, that no less a
personage than Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery chief of the
Imperial General Staff, announced
recently that all officer candidates
at the Royal Military Academy at
Sandhurst would be taught Russian.
He further stated that he believed
that the language barrier was the
main obstacle to full understanding
between Britain and Russia.
The history of the Slav people
has been closely inter-related. For
centuries, what has affected one has
affected all in varying degrees. Since
the early nineteenth century, a movement has been afoot to unite all
Slavic peoples. This movement is
known as "Pan-Slavism". One of
th-a ^common bases for their unity
was to be that of language. Scholars
proved that elements of a single
ancient root language pervaded each
Slav   tongue.
Pan-Slavism flourished for a time
among the patriots of Slav countries
but the "Kultur" aspirations of the
I German bloc (Prussia, Austria et al)
led to energetic steps being taken
to check it. The efforts of the Teutons met with little success, with the
result that today Pan-Slavism is.
in many respects a greater factor in
'European politics than the much-
dreaded  Bolshevism.
The Western World is apt to look
upon the present-day manifestations
of Pem-Slavism as pro-Communistic
because of usual Russian leadership
and instigation. This may or may
not be true. Small Slav nations like
Czecho-Slovakia and Jugoslavia have
pursued and developed the Pan-
Slavic idea to a marked degree, looking to their larger Slav brother nations to fulfill their aspirations. The
political and economic status o*f
Russiei has logically placed Soviet
Russia in the> role of protector of
the lesser Slav nations. This position vv:is held in the past by Czarist
protection of all Slavs of Orthodox
religious faith.
Whether under Czar or Dictator,
Russia has always shown a desire
to form a Pan-Slavic Union. Today
this union is more feasible than ever
before because Perhaps today religion no longer presents so great a
^rrier to common understanding,
ne may ask then what of the bar
rier of Soviet ideology? Judging
from recent reports it appears that
Russia is to some extent soft-pedalling Communism in Cathol'ic Slav
countries, but she is not forgetting
her old Pan Slav dreams there. She
is attempting to win favour by promoting study, in those countries, of
national language and culture with
an overall stress on their Slavic background.
The Russian attitude, according to
recent observors. has led to a widespread interest in and study of the
Russian language with a view to
making the common medium °f
Slavonic communication. Once the
Slavs themselves solve the language
barrier, Fan-Slavism is inevitable;
and if the Pan Slavic dream is realized, the world will have to contend
with a virile enlightened Slav bloc
which will soon reach three hundred
To cope with such a problem the
Western World would do very well
to devote a great deal more time
to the study of the Russian language
and the Slavs generally.
I am tired of what appears to be
over-sensitivity of the persons of
Communist persuasion on this campus,
These persons have not been the
victims of discrimination on the campus. They have established their
own Forum, they control their own
club, they participate in the Parliamentary Forum under the nomme
de course of L.P.P.; they enjoy the
views of their own speakers and
politicians on the campus; and they
are members in. and have candidates
in the pending election in Branch 72
of the Canadian Legion.
But recently in The Ubyssey,
several of their letters and comments
indicate that some of these persons
at least, have no desire to show tolerance on their own part. When
Don Stainsby wrote his column on
capitalism, it was not enough to
criticize what he wrote—the author
was subjected to personal abuse as
well, Moreover one Harold Dean
is not content with criticizing the
views of Mr. Cole, but has attacked
him as "ridiculous . . ." and again
makes an obviously personal attack
:m the writer. If anyone dares to
criticize their views or even to defend i ther than communist-approved
ones it would seem that, "a personal  attack,   is  very  bad  taste"
I hope that there are some people
who will see my point, and will agree
that criticism or a difference in opinion does not necessitate a vicious personal attack, but can be debated or
discussed with civility and even good
manners. MIKE  LAKES

Praise Welcome
Students from New Zealand universities expressed their thanks for
the hospitality shown them by students and faculty of the University
of British Columbia in a letter to
Ted  Kirkpatrick,  president of AMS.
'We thoroughly enjoyed our three
deys stay at UBC, and would like
especially to thank President MacKenzie, Dr. and Mrs. Hutchinson,

Letters To The Edito
Dear Sir;
During the whole of this college
year I have very much appreciated
the courtesy of The Ubyssey in keeping me supplied by mail with the
current issue of the paper. Under
the present crowded conditions it is
practically impossible for me to secure a copy of the paper for myself
and I very much missed the personal
delivery which had been so kindly
given me in earlier days. As a liaison officer between the students and
the faculty, I find The Ubyssey an
important source of information.. I
very much appreciate the kindness
of this year's editorial board in seeing that I am supplied with it. May
I, through you, extend my thanks
to all concerned. I should like, at
the same time, to congratulate the
editorial board on the fine coverage

Mr.   Gib  Austin's editorial  'Hands
ttear Sir:
This letter expresses the regret of
the undersigned students that there
should appear in our campus newspaper such an inexcusable editorial
as last Friday's.
The   implieation   'in   this   editorial
is that one foundation of Canadian-
' American friendship is a mutual hatred of Russia.
■ This idea should be heartily repudiated as a distortion of the real
harmony which exists between Canadians and Americans, and also because any assumption that there is
no friendly feeling now existing towards Russia or possible in the future
will lead inevitably to another war.
There are no differences of opinion
in the world today for which solution cannot be found, through the
extension of a spirit of tolerance
and understanding, by peaceful,
constructive means. Therefore such
irrational, bigoted thinking as expressed in his editorial stirkes the
progress of humanity,
As Canadians, we value the goodwill of both our American and our
Russian   neighbours.
Yours truly,
Comrade Editor:
Gordon Gray's elevation of myself
to compatibility of idea with Dacre
Cole is an honor I  must decline.
Dacre is an ardent Conservative,
an honest admirer of the economics
of 'free enterprise', while I am a
Socialist, wholeheartedly enthusiastic about a social system in which
co-operation shall replace competition.
Not only do I recognize that the
left is itriving to prevent fascism,
but I am a member of the left fighting to forestall that fascism by replacing this moribund capitalistic
system with 'a social order from
which the domination and exploitation of one class by another will be
eliminated, in which economic planning will (supersede private enterprise.
With 805,178 others (dominion election 1945 CCF vote) I believe that
job of replacement can be done
democratically by the constitutional
instruments our nation has been
using these past seven centuries.
Dear Sir:
Our worthy guest editor, Gib Austin from Washington, evidently left
the "great peace-loving-American"
part of him at home when he crossed,
ironically enough, thru the Peace
Arch into Canada. Glib Gib has
obviously been taken in his stupendous free press and radio and now
wants us to be as equally immature.
blind, foolhardy, and indeed, malicious. It is a shame that as a representative of the United States and
American public opinion he has allowed such utter rot to be printed
in our Ubyssey.
Perhaps, on the other hand, he
has opened our eyes to the state of
affairs and minds of our peaceful
neighbours to the South and in so
doing has performed a service much
greater than that which he intended.
An Indignant.
Dear Sir:
Tho Soeialist Forum regrets that
Mr. Austin should abuse the privileges extended him by Tlie Ubyssey
to exhibit his prejudices against
Soviet Russia. Canada is proud of
its friendly relations with both its
great neighbours, the United States
and  Soviet  Russia.
We do not like to see these friendships destructed.
Editorials such as Mr. Austin's do
Across the Border" might well have

It touches me to find our American
friends so worried over the fact
that some people in the world may
he suspicious of them.
The U. S. A. now has an airforce
greater than all the other airforces
in the world put together She has
a navy and 2 naval air fleet greater
than all the rest of the world combined. During the war American
troops were in over 50 different areas
in the world and they are still scattered throughout the world. The
U.S. just acquired over 600 islands
in the Pacific. They had until just
recently at least, troops in China.
They control Japan by themselves.
Their troops are in the Phillipines
still even though the Phillipines are
supposed to have been given their
independence. During the war the
Americans built bases across Africa,
India and China. They have been
dickering to build an airport in
Transjordania and they have been
trying to get Iceland as a base. They
are now talking of buying Greenland.
Since the end of the war the Americans have equipped, armed and
trained 60 divisions for their friend
Chaing Kai-Chek. They also gave
the Kuomintang more Lend Lease
after the war than they did all during
the war.
The influence of American capital
investments in Central America, the
Carribbean area, and the whole of
South America is tremendous. Their
investments in other countries
throughout the world together with
their present loan and UNRRA policy
gives them great political  influence.
The United States now has three-
fifths of the Capitalist production
of the world and she has half of the
production of the whole world. The
U.S. did not suffer any war damages
at home. Rather her production
went up 250% during the war years.
Now let's look at the U.S. relations
with Canada. According to the New
York Times this new Joint Defence
Agreement between Canada and the
U.S. amounts to declaration of independence from Britain and of dependence upon the United States. A
recent announcement stated that
Canada and the U.S. would man
weather stations in the north together. Everyone, of course, has heard
of the cbmor to give the U.S. bases
in Canada's north, In the economic
field we find that during the war
there was a great expansion of American corporate investments in Canada while the British were compelled to surrender one third of
their capital. Today U.S.' investment
in Canada totals at least 5 billion
dollars as compared with one and a
half billion for the British. Most of
these investments are in the great
monopolies in the auto, electrical
equipment, chemical, machinery and
non-ferrous metals (like aluminum)
industries. The native Canadian stake
in these and other industries also
increased but Canadian resources and
industry are today largely within
the American Corporate empire.
The standardization of American
and Canadian arms, the attempt to
give Northern bases to the U.S. is
analogous to German and Finnish
relations prior to the war. The Man-
nerheim line was built with German
engineers and with German and English financial aid. The Finns had
only 250 planes (Adorned with
swastikas) but they had airport facilities for 2,000 planes—in case some
friendly power wanted to use them!!
Mr. Austin tries to make it appear
that it is disconcerting to the "hammer and sickle" if Canada and the
U.S. are friendly. The Soviet Union
desires that all nations and peoples
may live together in peace including
the American and the Canadian
In the Soviet Union when they look
at their 250 devastated cities and
towns and consider their 20,000,000
dead, they may well be disconcerted
to read where an American Senator
stated publicly that the atom bomb
should be dropped on every city,
town and village in Russia. The
"Get Tough with Russia" policy, the
"American Century" idea, the lying
pro-Nazi, anti-Roosevelt, anti-labor
anti-Soviet Hearst press—these and
many other things are enough to
cause even the; most trusting person
to be suspicious.

Castle Becomes College
The invasion of Victoria last weekend brought more than six victories
for University of British Columbia
teams. It also led to the discovery
of impressive Dunsmuir Castle, the
old home of Victoria College. The
ancient, turretted castle, standing
atop Craigdarroch Hill and silhouetted against the skyline of "quaint
old Victoria" fascinated UBC students
whose lectures in converted army
huts suddenly seemed very dull
when compared to those in the ballrooms of an aging castle.
Although Victoria College outgrew
the old castle and moved to the
Victoria Normal School last fall, Vic
College alums still have happy memories of lectures in the faded dining
rooms, drawing rooms and drafty
bedrooms of one of Victoria's famous
Dunsmuir castle was built nearly
sixty years ago by a Scottish coal
miner who made his fortune in the
Wellington coal mines of Vancouver
Island. The power behind it all was
as usual, a woman.
Robert Dunsmuir, the son of a
Scottish coal miner had worked contentedly in the coal mines of Scotland until the year he married a
Kilmarnock girl. Then, or possibly
as a result, Robert developed an
overpowering urge to see the New
World and the Crown Colony of
Vancouver   Island   particularly.
His wife Joan did not share his
spirit of adventure and made it clear
that 'she intended to spend the rest
of her days on the Scottish heath.
Robert tried every means of persuasion and filially offered her a
castle if she would accompany him.
That settled the question. The pros'
pect of being mistress of her own
castle was enough to make Joan follow her husband almost anywhere.
Robert Dunsmuir was lucky from
from the minute he arrived on Vancouver Island. He discovered a vein
of coal at Wellington in 1869 and for
the next few years he was So busy
mining coal, building railways and
making money that the promise of
the castle was forgotten. The couple
built a frame house in the oldest
and most elite residential section of
Victoria and reigned supreme in the
social life of the city.
However, Joan, like all women,
was not one to forget a promise.
With several million dollars in his
pocket Dunsmuir began to build his
wife's castle on the summit of
Craigdarroch Hill. But he died without seeing the building completed.
Joan finally had her castle but no
husband. Until her death in 1908
she persided over her castle in solitary splendor.
For the next several years the
castle remained vacant and eventually was taken over by the city for
taxes. In 1919 the soldiers' Civil Re-
establishment  Commission  converted
it into a rest home for disabled veterans and in the early twenties it
became the home of Victoria College. Since Vic College's move to
the Normal School lost fall, the old
castle remains alone and empty as
it did forty years ago following tlie
death  of  Joan  Dunsmuir.

Charging one of ihe grinding mills with steel rods
in the Nickel plant at Copper Cliff.
IN ONE YEAR more than 10,000 tons of steel
rods were worn out in grinding the hard,
abrasive ore from the Canadian Nickel mines.
More than 13,000 tons of structural steel were
used for repair work. The Canadian Nickel
industry also used 1000 tons of steel pipe, 5000
tons of iron and steel castings, 775 tons of roll
shells, 150 tons of welding rods.
And  in the  massive  equipment  used  in  steel
production, Nickel is used to give strength and
toughness to metal parts, and to give them the
ability to stand up under intense heat. About
six tons of Nickel, for instance, went into the
rolls, gears, shafts and other parts of the plate
mill illustrated here.
So the Canadian Nickel worker produces Nickel
(or the steel industry; the steel worker produces
the steel the Canadian Nickel industry must have.

How You Got Here, Baby, are you? Tell you
what, though. Let's make a parlour game out
of it. You start of! saying: "Herbs. Stems
cylindrical, hollow except at nodes. Leaves
alternate, ligulale, with sheaths split to base.
Flowers regular, inconspicuous, hypogonous,
ranged in spikelels with chaffy bracts ..."
And then when they give up (and they will)
you burst out with the answer: "GRASS!" Just
like charades.
It should be pretty obvious by now that we're
going to get nothing but the old run-around
from the botanists  in this  matter.  Anyway,
the next time some wag says: "tell me about
the flowers and the bees, daddy", why, just
start him on the following formula:
ft   K5C5AG
:     K5 C5 A5 5 GI
t%   PO (?) AO G (2)
. . . which represent, respectively, the floral
formulae of the monoclinous flower of the
Buttercup; the monoclinous flower of the Pea
and the carpellary flower of the Hazel. (Try
that on the neighborhood corsage-merchant).
Then, when his lower lip flaps down, give
him the simple explanation: the numeral sign
(j;i) and the vertical dots(:) before the formulae denote actinomorphic and zygomorphic
flowers, respectively. Vertical dots(:) correspond with a median-zygomorphic, while
horizontal ( . . ) dots would represent a trans-
verse-zygomorphic. The letters K,C,(P),A and
G represent the calyx, corolla (perianth), an-
droecium and gynaecium. If the gynaecium be
syncarpous- its' number is enclosed in brackets

UBC Frosh Edge
Bo-mi-hi Squad
An exhibition thriller Wednesday
noon saw the UBC Freshmen come
off the floor with a 39-38 hoopla
win over the luckless B.-Me-Hi Rainmakers from Prince Rupert.
Playing a terrific game throughout
the whole forty minutes, the visiting
hoopla artists just had the breaks
going against them all the way. Th;
UBC Inter A lads looked rusty and
out of practice in their passing plays
but their shooting was hot enough
to score the extra point.
The Rainmakers proved to be a
great bunch of sports as well as a
great bunch of ball players. A rabid
lot of Rupert fans were on hand
to watch their boys and to cheer
them on.
Foul shots finally broke the Rupert
boys. Two foul shots awarded with
but two seconds to go could have
won the game for the visitors but
Fate just wasn't having it that way.
Both shots missed.
Reg Lavigne and Eddie Cicone led
the attack for the Bo-Me-Hi boys
with 12 and 8 points respectively.
Doug Bell notched 12 for the UBC
squad while Sutherland and Pete
Walker counted for 11 and 10 respectively.
Stan Burke Wins
Sigma Tau Award
Stan Burke won the cup for his
speech on "One World", as the Agricultural Public Speaking course finished up the term's work Monday
The contest climaxed a weekly
course sponsored by Sigma Tau Upsilon, honorary agricultural fraternity.
Vivien Spiccr won second place
honors and Glen Garry third; each
of the contestants received a certificate as a record of their work.
The sponsors felt that the certificate would prove useful to the students when they would be applying
for jobs, as more and more jobs todav
require public speaking ability.
With only one more game to play
for the Mainland League Cup, Varsity
and UBC will meet this weekend in
an all-decisive game.
UBC squad wants to maintain its
slight lead in the league setup while
the Varsity eager-beavers hope to
take over top spot and the cup.
Varsity, last year's cup winners,
have been trailing considerably during
the year. Recently they put on a
burst of speed which put them one
point; behind tlie soaring' UBC eleven.
Here are tlie standings to elate:
P W L D Pts.
UBC   11   7   2   2   16
Varsity         11    7   3    1    15
Vancouver     11    5   (J   0    10
North Shore  11   2   8   8     5
According to a short discussion with
assistant coach Pomfret, most of the
boys are bigger than last year's crop
of gridmen. Although there i sa pretty
good turnout considering that It is
spring training, the coaches are still
looking for more big boys, particularly ends.
•Many of the boys who fought for
the Blue and Gold squad last year are
out again for spring training but there
are several who are still playing other
sports and have not been able to turn
out for that reason.
The linemen of last year are out
consistently and according to Pomfret, the experience that they got last
year is really showing up in the practices. They just seem to start faster
than the lads who haven't had that
Among those turning out, Claud
Simpson was named as one of the
brighter lights in the backfield. He is
a Vancouver boy who has been in
the services for a few years and who
is making a pretty fair job of filling
the full back slot in practices.
Among the boys on the line, two
of last year's stalwarts continue to
show sparks of football savvy. Hank
Sweatman and Alec Lambe are both
playing good  consistent ball.
Coach Kaba still wants more men
though. It takes a lot of talent to
field a team in the Conference and
there is a lot of that talent around
UBC. Bigger turn-outs are expected
in the fall.
In the meantime, spring training
continues to be the order of the day
or at least of Monday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday from 4:30 on.

<$>that gave the pros such a close run
last year apart from one change due
to the loss of Malcom Tapp, last year's
•tar who has turned professional. The
university men have been warming
up for the affair during the past year
in competition with top line American
college teams.
Headlining the professional team
will be Stan Leonard, Canadian Professional Champion for 1945 and 1946,
and Freddy Wood, perhaps the only
Canadian who consistently makes an
invasion of the American Gold Trail
Bob Plommer and Hans Swinton
will be thrown to these two lions of
the links.
Matched against Dune Sutherland
and Jock McKinnon will be Ormy Hall
and Dave Dale, comprising the all-
Highland foursome of the day, for the
lairds of Point Grey and Capilano
have promised to turn up in kilts.
Rounding out the bill will be Benny
Colk, recently returned from a spin
at the Gold Trail, and Quilchena's Ernie Brown who will be pitted against
Varsity's Dick Hanley and Doug Bajus.
Members of the University team
competed in local tournaments during
the past yar with considerable success.
Hans Swinton marched to victory
in the West Point Club Championship.
Bob Plommer was the first Varsity
golfer to win a major tournament
when he took the B.C. Closed Amateur
and Dick Hanley and Doug Bajus did
well in the same tournament.
All the proceeds of the match will
go to tho War Memorial Gym Fine!
the same as last year when $250 \va
raised for the cause. Tickets ma;
bo obtained at the AMS office and at
the  University Golf Cours.

zone defence that the college crew
threw at them,
Varsity also had the benefit of good
refereelng, a fact which seemed to
stump the Hatzic boys. The .score at
the end of the first quarter was 11-4
and was a good indication of the play.
Although the students were not
playing their best brand of ball, they
had an offensive that went through
the Valley boys comparatively easily.
Big Bill Bell had a fair night, banging home 12 points for his night's
The collegians' zone defence was the
main soring in tho game, and if it had
not been for the shortness of ihe floor,
tlie score would probably have been
