To maintain her identity as the French cousin of her
host she asked for the dinner jokes to be repeated in French.
She was given away, however, by her reaction to the after-
dinner singing in the undergraduate bar.
Both the girl and her "host" have been given an early

Birds appeared awe-struck in
the opening minutes of the game

The Drunkometer is a "completely scientific" instrument,
Vancouver's Traffic Superintendent Gordon Ambrose told 300
students Fridav.
Speaking to the Engineering
Institute of Canada in Applied
Science 201. Ambrose said that
the drunkometer was completely
accurate and enabled police to
determine whether a suspect was
drunk or ill.
"We picked up a man recently
who exhibited all the symptoms
of heavv drinking, actually he
was a diabetic but we could not
have determined this without the
drunkometer." he said.
Snot. Ambrose attempted to
demonstrate the accuracy of the
drunkometer bv explaining the
three separate tests thai determine the amount of alcohol in
a persons blood.
In one. the color change in a
vial of liauid determines the
amount of alcohol, the other
two are volume measurements
which auicklv and accurately
show if the suspect has enough
alcohol in his blood to make a
dangerous driver.
Sunt. Ambrose went on to explain that the drunkometer gave
the police adequate evidence to
prove a drunken driving charge.
Mc exnlained that this procedure gives the motorist a better chance to avoid a drunken
driving charge.

THE UBYSSEY is in favor of girls, but we are becoming
slightly sick of campus queens. So far this year we have
been deluged with Frosh Queens, Homecoming Queens,
Mardi Gras Queens, Phrateres Queens, Sigma Chi Queens
and Totem Queens. We wouldn't be so mean as to suggest
that the Royal Order of Queen-Pickers are scraping the

Fund - Raising Dinner
To Aid UBC Expansion
Annual UBC development fund dinner will be held in Brock
Hall March 11, officially opening the 1954 drive for alumni contributions toward UBC's expansion program.
Alumni secretary Frank Turner said Thursday that development fund trustees, working
toward three objectives hope to
better last year's contributions,
which totalled $40,072.
First aim of the fund is to provide for the fourth consecutive
year, at least 10 university scho-
larhsips, Turner said.
Second purpose is to continue
contributions to the president's
fund, a sum of money used at
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie's discretion.
The other malor project is the
home economic's home management house drive which is largely supported through alumni contributions.
The home eoonomics department drive received a total of
$6000 from the development
fund in 1953.
Alumni-contributed funds and
gifts from outside sources have
also been made available for
the War Memorial gymnasium
fund, furnishings for the women's residences, the F. G. C.
Wood Memorial theatre, and to
memorials for Dr. G. G. Sedgewick and Dr. David Buchanan.
Turner also said alumni intend this vear to continue the
"Capsule College" in conjunction with thn department of extension. This was held for two
davs last vear in Kelowna.

True to our national characteristic of slavishly emulating
our neighbours across the border, whether for good or bad,
Canadians have adopted "Un-American" to our own usage.
"Un-Canadian" is being increasingly flung back and forth
between antagonists on almost any topic whatever. The term
is being applied to everything from homosexuality to the management of the Red Cross, and in view of the panic which
the epithet "Un-American" now arouses in the United States,
an analysis of "Un-Canadian" seems highly in order.
To discover just what "Un-Canadianism" is, we must
fiMt define the positive form of the term. What, then, is
Any heterogeneous panel of Canadians, no matter how
learned, would soon find itself in hopeless disagreement in
formulating an exact and all-embracing definition of Canadianism. Canadianism means so many different things to so
many different people that it is doubtful if two people in the
whole country have exactly the same concept of it. We submit that, by its very nature, Canadianism is indefinable.
Canada's incredible width and breadth have naturally
given rise to many different peoples whose traditions,
physical environments, occupations, racial ancestry and religions have created social characteristics which not even the
eflormous shrinking effect of nationwile press and radio have
been able to totally erase. Every last individual's concept of
Cinadianism is shaded, however, minutely, just a wee bit
differently from his neighbour's.
To most, roughly speaking, Canadianism is the democratic
way of life. But there are many "but's" and "and's" and they
afe diverse indeed, and of infinitely varying proportions.
Belief, or disbelief in any number of government polipies,
religious ideas, and social instutions, all part of Canadian life,
pattern and individual concept of Canadianism in an infinite number of subtly different ways. The idea of Canada
Itself is coloured by the area in which the individual lives.
Canadianism, like God, is infinite in meaning.
Nor is Canadianism a rigid and unchanging thing. With
our society altering at a constantly accelerating rate, today's
most cherished ideals may, in a hundred years, seem as incomprehensible and as little worth fighting for as those of
tiie Crusaders. Yet the new ideals will still be Canadian.
Thus, any person, or persons, attempting to set up standards of Canadianism, or "Un-Canadlanism" is merely reflecting the beliefs and biases of a ridiculous minority, and
any attempt to impose these standards upon the entire population, whether out of sheer jingoism or ultimate altruism, is
nothing less than dictatorship.
We should think twice before contemptuously flinging the
term "Un-Canadian" at anyone. We may be "Un-Canadian"

Writ &if Hand
Editor-in-Chief, The Ubysseyy:
After reading the editorial remarks published last Friday,
I thought that you might be interested in the facts of the
situation. For your information and the information of other
students this is what occurred! Some time on or before January 29th, the Engineering Undergraduate Society through the
Civil Club booked the Auditorium for their annual pep
At its meeting on February 1, the Students' Council set
the date for the 3rd slate of elections for February 24th which
necessarily involved election speeches by the candidates on
th Monday preceding the election, namely the 22nd. The reas-
son for fixing the election dates at that time was to avoid
the clash with what the Council considered the paramount
interest The Columbia Bi-Centennial Celebration which occupied the entire week in which the first elections would
normally be held.
Meanwhile, the E.U.S. had been making preparations
for its pep meet which were specifically designed for the
Auditorium stage and could not be carried out to advantage
in any other place. The Film Society was approached by
Mr. Nuttall with a request to relinquish its booking for the
auditorium for Tuesday the 23rd, but they declined to do so
on the reasonable ground that they had already made preparation for their weekly show and had several times cancelled
or re-scheduled their shows to accommodate other groups.
Wednesday will be too late for the pep meet and as many
of the students involved in the pep mt will be making last-
minute preparations for the first night of the E.U.S. Pall-
After discussion between Mr. McNish, Mr. Nuttall and myself
it was decided that the only reasonable course would be to
hold the election speeches elsewhere than in the auditorium.
This was on the understanding that the E.U.S. wolud restrict
its audience to Engineers, an agreement* which has been
The students ought to know that contrary to the editorial insinuations, Mr. McNish behaved throughout in a
manner wholly in keeping with the impartial and competent
way in which he had carried out arrangements for the two
previous slates of elections.
Ivan Fclthuni, President, AMS
In Droves
Well, UBC students did it again. They stayed away in
droves for the first game of the Hamber Cup hockey series
with the Alberta Golden Bears. There were GOO fans present
to cher Birds on Monday night, 300 of whom were 'downtown'
Three hundred students out of a total enrolment of over
5000 thought enough of their University and their hockey
team to come to the game. UBC has guaranteed Alberta $1000
for this series and in order to break even we must have at
least 750 fans present at each game.
In simpler terms, the athletic budget is going further in
the hole and athletics are doomed to continue their inadequate
program because UBC students will not support their teams.
Lyrical Talk
"Where there is no doubt
there is understanding,, is, to
mc. a classical truth involving
the fundamental beliefs and
ideas of man. Yesterday at
lunch I went earnestly seeking
some understanding of Christian Science. The lecturer was
an eloauent orator with resources of fine similes and metaphors and oossessive of particularly fine imagination. His
lvrical talk skipped from explicit to implicit examples with
the firm dexterity of "Chrstian
Science logic."
He stated that popular theology based its spiritual proof
upon physical manifestations;
a slight overstatement but
nevertheless stated with other
overstatement in a lyrical
style which seemed to be derived from some "greater authority" and therefore not to
be auestioned. Needless to say
mv doubts were many and I
sincerely hoped that during a
auestion period they would be
removed or strengthened.
This opportunity, however,
was not to De mine, because the
speaker by a careful manipulation of breathing and extended
vowels stretched his oratory to
exactly half past one, as if
guided by some divine hand.
Christ, realized the value of
auestion and answers and indeed most of his parables are
the result of auestions of non-
believers and curious followers,
therefore I submit that a speaker for Christian Science can
hardlv de much less than follow
the example of the "original
discoverer" of "Christian Science."

Affleck And His
Athletic Views
In tiie Applied Science issue last Thursday there appeared an article on the sports page written by one Bob Affleck,
Third Chemical. Mr. Affleck demonstrated his ignorance of
athletic matters in large gobs in this article and wrote with
all the traditional assurance of one who knows nothing about
which he is screaming.
The meanderings and rantings of Affleck are typical of the
grandstand quarterbacks who shoot off their mouth without first
finding some basis for their arguments. In a way it was a blessing that some of Mr. Affleck's weird.reasoning was deleted because of space limitations as he would have only shown more of
his athletic ignorance if all the article had been printed.
Solving our athletic problem in one short article, Mr. Affleck states: "The poor records in the two principal sports can
be traced to the fact that US colleges are willing and able to pay
their athletes."
Mr. Affleck here makes the mistake of the average person
who forms his opinion of college sport from a few instances of
fixed basketball games, over-emphasis in large colleges and out-
. standing half-backs who drive convertibles. It is easy to generalize but if Mr. Affleck knew anything of athletics he would
know that there is quite a difference between Kentucky, Notre
Dame or California and Eastern Washington, Pacific Lutheran
or College of Puget Sound.
I would just like to ask Mr. Affleck if he has ever visited
a single Evergreen Conference school? On what basis docs he
make the charge that Evergreen schools hire athletes?
Certainly, athletes are .subsidized in the large US universities but I wish a loudmouth character like Affleck would investigate the Evergreen situation before he sits in his concrete
mansion on the other side of the campus and lordly pontificates
about the obvious answer to our athletic problems.
If Affleck would take the trouble to investigate our problem (instead of emerging once a year for a blast at the athletic
system he would realize that the main reason why we don't win
more often is that only seven high schools in BC play football
in high school and that there are very few competent basketball
coaches in our high schools. Affleck says, "The poor showings
cannot be blamed upon poor coaching or upon the innate superiority of U.S. athletes over their Canadian counterparts."
The last section of his statement is one of the few I will
agree with but that "poor coaching" phrase! I'll refer Mr. Affleck to any one of the UBC coaches if he thinks our athletes
get adequate or even passable coaching in high school.
This Merlin of the Applied Science faculty states: "B.C.'s
outstanding high school athletes naturally listen when some big
university south of the border offers a free education." Another question for Mr. Affleck: "Name me ONE 'outstanding high
school athlete who has gone to a big American university and
done anything. No football players have gone, some basketball
players have made the trip but none of them has ever made the
varsity team and most of them return once they see they can't
make the grade. One member of our Birds and one of our
Jayvees are currently in that category.
Trying to avoid the fact that individual events don't require
the extent of coaching that team sports do, Affleck detours by
saying that.UBC more than holds its own in track and field.
Sorry, old man, but we don't, as Evergreen statistics will show.
Although the chief reason for our poor showing here is that
American schools are in attendance two months longer than
UBC and our runners just can't afford to wait around until
the Evergreen meet in June.
Affleck says he doubts if it is possible for us to win without athletic scholarships. And I say that if he would come out
from under his Apqjjbd Science sweater and do a little snooping around he wouMrdiscover that UBC is not so lily-white as
he assumes in the practice of siving.a little financial help to
destitute athletes. It's the same old business of glass houses
and all that rot, Mr. Affleck.
Our friend winds up by saying that UBC should either offer
a little inducement to high school athletes or withdraw completely from tho Evergreen Conference. And, I ask, then where
would our football, basketball, baseball, swimming, track, golf,
tennis, and skiing teams play. Participation in the Evergreen
loop depends upon entering football and basketball teams, and,
ignoring the records of those two sports, they will pay the shot
for the minor sports.
Affleck says that, this year's McGill same was a step in the
rijdit direction. No one will deny that, the ideal system would
be to play entirely in a Canadian conference but iust who is
going to supply the money for us to fly a football team to Saskatoon or Winnipeg?
I don't like playing in an American conference any better
than you do, Mr. Affleck, bul it is the only thing possible at
the moment so why not expend your energy trying to support
and build up our teams instead of rationalizing by making
vague, nico-soundiim charges about athletic scholarships in
schools one-quarter our size.

want to give blood, won't give
blood, period.
It is my opinion that as a
result of the physical and mental strain which the academic
year entails, less students want
to give blood in the spring than
in the fall.
Consider an average student
in October: he or she is fit as
a fiddle after the summer; he
or she has <no worries—there's
lots of money in the bank and
the nearest chaos, the Xmas
exams, is a long way off; he or
She is having a good time at
parties, etc.
Does the student want to donate a pint? Certainly. He
(or she) feeling on top of it all.
Now consider the same student in February. After
perching on his or her backside
for a term and a half, he (or
she) is not quite as fit as in
October; he (or she) is still
shaky from the ordeal at Xmas
and also just a little worried
about how he (or she) is going
to squeeze what should have
been done, what has to be done
and what will have to be done
into the time which remains
before the ultimate cataclysm
—the finals.
Does the student want to.donate a pint? Well let's see now,
it takes at least three-quarters
of an hour, he (or she) has got
this to do and that to do and
besides ...
If we are to hold a really
successful 100 per cent of the
quota drjve on this campus, October is the time for it, not

Seconders Statement
Gerry Hodge *
Gerry, a first year Engineer,
has been active in many areas
of campus life. This is evidenced bv the fact that besides
being vice-president of LSE, he
is also president of Jazzsoc,
a driving force in Mamooks,
and was co-chairman of the
Homecoming committee and organized the ticket sale for thc
Blue and Gold Revue.
His mos,t important qualifications, however, are his ability
to meet people, understand
their points of view, participate
intelligently in discussion of
camous problems and act on
decisions where necessary.
For these reasons I feel Gerry
is emminantlv suitable for the
position   of  vice-president.

Wendy Sutton has the wide
experience necessary for Vice-
President. Her activities this
year include: Editor in Chief
of Totem, Vice-President of
VOC, Representative to WAD
and WJS.
Past activities: Radsoc, Intramurals, Dance Club, Phrateres,
VOC and Totem Executive.
Over 600 persons have endorsed her nomination. Students seldom express, in such
an emphatic way, their desire
to place an outstanding candidate on Council.
May I suggest that Wendy
may prove their confidence, in
her is not misplaced.

He warned that action must

implement none of the changes
until they were "officially recommended by the AMS,' and
that no major remodelling would
be possible until next year.
In its report, the committee
suggested that the cafeteria be
remodelled to provide faster service, and proposed a large number of minor improvements to
provide better meals.
The committee also stated the
cafeteria was "a disgrace to the
University" because of the dirt
and overcrowding.
Mrs. Leroux said she had read
only a rough draft of the report,
and while it was in the main
quite fair, she felt some of the
criticism was not Justifed.
"We know the cafeteria is
poorly laid out and antiquated,
but we simply haven't the money
to improve it," she said.
She added that all the blame
for the dirt could not be laid on
the staff.
"The cafeteria is clean in the
morning, and if the students
would co-operate it would stay
that way," she said.
Mrs. Leroux also stated that'
the Food Services would have
more money for improvements
if students would be more careful with the new chairs in the
"Those chairs cost $1400 last
year, and already 38 of them
have been broken," she declared.
Professors and instructors
from England, the U.S. and other
parts of Canada will supplement
memberr of the UBC faculty in
teaching summer courses here.
Expected increase in enrolment, said the director, is due
to a wider selection of courses
to be offered and the fact that
British Empire Games will bring
more people to Vancouver early
in the summer.
Summer session begins July 5
and runs to August 20. Applications should be made by mail
or in person before July 5, last
dav of registration.
As in previous years, there will
be camous accommodation for
out of town students.
The director's office states that
the annual summer session is
now in preparation and will be
available from the registrar near
the end of March.
Peak year for summer session registration was 1046 when
2.307 students enrolled for
courses. The lowooint was reached in 1052 when there were only
971 students registered.

Of   Jobs
Rising unemployment figures

This was announced by Lt.-
Col. F. J. McLean, head of
UBC's personnel services, In

from the more than 300 firms
which approach UBC each spring
in search for talent.
"We've got a 15 percent smaller class," he explained. "Actually, the picture is brighter this

business and industry. "Less

Electrical engineers are tilting the most offers, he said, and

"They're the fair-haired boys this

Seventy students turned

on "The Answer to the H-bomb."
Gardner, at an unusually quiet
meeting, told the students "The
H-Bomb is a threat to everyone
in this room—to everybody in
the world."
"We can go to the world's outstanding physicists for statements on the bomb.'
"Einstein, whose research led
to thc development of the H-
bomb. said that it was now in
the realm of physical possibility
that the bomb can destroy all life
on this planet," he continued.
"It is no longer a question of
war or neace but of peace or the
utter destruction of vast areas of
our countrv and the world," said
Gardner heatedly.
"Are we going to destroy the
bomb we created or let it de
troy us?" he demanded.
Gardner said th»t "The Congress for Support of Negotiated
Peace" now in session in Toronto, had issued an appeal calling
on the Parliament of Canada to

Birds Poor On Backboards;

Zaharko  Looks Good
Rest Of Team Slumps
"The worst weekend of rebounding that I have ever seen
a University team put out." In these words coach Jack Pomfret
partially explained the Thunderbird's miserable weekend showing as they dropped two games.
Friday night Seattle Pacific turned the trick as they clobbered Jiirds 75-60 and on Saturday night it was Pacific Lutheran's turn to have sdme fun as they clipped the Thunderbirds'
wings to the tune of 81-55.
Although you certainly
couldn't tell it from Vancouver's

baseball team. Bill would like
all those who are interested in
playing ball for the Thunderbirds to come to a meeting tomorrow in room 210 of the War
Memorial Gymnasium at noon.
SLENDER GUARD Danny Zaharko played some outstanding basketball over the weekend as he scored thirty-two
points in the two Thunderbird games. Although the Birds
lost both games Zaharko was a shining light on Jack Pomfret's dismal-looking crew. A repeat performance by Danny
this weekend could make it tough for Western's Vikings.

Fighting Birds Win Two;
Contend For Championship
It took Ed Luckett four
months to do it but he has
transformed Varsity soccer
team into a fighting and winning outfit. The "new" Birds
swept to two more games
last weekend as they downed
Dominions 3-2 on Saturday
and thundered to a smashing
10-1 triumph over Sapperton
on  Sunday.
The double win moved the
charging Birds to within five
points of leagi.ie-l( ading Collingwood, just one point behind Dominions and two behind Hales.
In the Saturday game, tempers flared as Birds roared
from behind to win in the
final minute ot play. At the
half. Varsitv faced a 2-1 deficit, after Ron Turbitt hod
given Birds an earlv  1-0 lead.
Captain Dick Matthews soured on a penalty kick to even
the game at 2-2'.
Then tho fireworks started.
First. Birds' Don Glieg and
Dominions' Johnson tangled
After the bovs had been separated. Ghee threw some hard
checks    and    Referee    Logan,
who had lost control of the
game some time before, rewarded Glieg with an early
shower for his efforts. Soon
after, u Dominion player was
also banished for taking a
poke at Dick "The Tank" Matthews.
Dick 'The Tank' Matthews
Then came tiie climax. In
the final minute of tho .name,
Boru Sveinsson, the Bird forward wilh till the potential
who had not scored all season,
blasted a bullet-like drive into
Ihe net to giye Varsity the
bitterly   contested   game   by   a
3-2   score.       The   game   was
somewhat marred by the broken leg suffered by Dominions'
The Sapperton game was
strictly no contest, as Borg
Sveinsson set what is believed
to be a new "B" Division individual scoring record. Svein-
son proved his Saturday goal
was no fluke as he poured
five goals past the defenseless
Sannerton   goalie.
The Birds had built up a
4-0 lead bv the half and added
six more in the second frame
for the 10-1 verdict, also believed to be a league record
for the most goals in one game.
Everyone on the forward
line got into the scoring. Besides Sveinson's great performance. Gordie Rudtfe, Ken
Campbell. Ron Turbitt, and
Bud Dobson all scored a goal.
Bud Dobson was the big factor in Sveinson's goals as he
sent Borg into the clear on
three of the goals.
In a. Third Division league
fnme UBC Chiefs and Bluebirds olaved to a 1-1 tie.
Goalie Somerled McDonald
starred for the Chiefs. Besides
beine the defensive standout.
McDonald also scored the tying goal on a penalty kick.
