Reporter Outlines
Of New Campus Buildings
(In the second of a series of three articles dealing
with UBC's post-war building program, Ubyssey writer
John Napler-Hemy describes new buildings that have
been constructed on campus.)      ' t

■• The, fltast 1*Krtld},*g to be completed after the war was
the milfioa/mollar Physics Building, which features a two-
storey Van deGraqf generator for smashing atoms. The
building contain*«'tjje largest graduate school in Canada,
with So\ graduate/23 of the Ph.Ds doing research work.
The spectrocopy laboratory can handle radiations ranging
from extreme ultra-violet to the longest lengths in infrared, or from the longest x-rays to the shortest wireless
waves.
In the $750,000 Enginering Building the entire basement is devoted to a hydraulics and materials testing labs.
In the hydraulics lab three large centrifugal pumps pump
water from a 100 foot long sump to over-head tanks, which
serve lab apparatus. Among the equipment is a flume for
determining *&e flow of water over various obstructions,
weighing tanks with Toledo scales for indicating the weight
of the water in the tanks, Pelton water turbines for measuring water flow and horse power, centrifugal pumps driven
by electric dynamometers for determing amount of water
and horse power, glass flumes and tilting flumes.
In the concrete lab engineers make samples for testing. Soil and asphalt study is carried on in the soils lab.
Stresses and strains of materials such as steel, concrete, timber, any be measured-on either of two testing
machines. The mechanically operated Olsen machine has
a capacity of 200,000 lbs., which can be applied either
as pressure or as tension. The smaller Baldwin-Southwark
machine is hydraulically operated and has a testing capacity of 69)000 lbs.
BIOLOGY BUILDING
The three wings of the million dollar Biology Building
contain the Departments of Biology, Zoology, Pharmacy
and Botany. The seats in the class rooms are arranged in
rows centering around the lecturer to povide the best

The grant waa demanded by a
strong delegation from the Board
of Governors and Faculty Assoela-
tion which met the cabinet Tuesday.
The cabinet was told bluntly
that If the grant was not forthcoming, a ' complete loss ot faculty

200
TORONTO—(CUP)—Almost 200 European students may
be brought to Canada under a new plan for International Student Service. At the last meeting of the local ISS committee in
Toronto plans were made for sponsoring the immigration of
.students who are now in German and Austrian D.P. camps.
At present students in the camps V
are permitted to come to Canada
under open employment contracts.
According to reports from ISS observers, the students feel that because of their Inexperience in Industrial or farm work, there has
been some discrimination against
them by immigration selection officers. This has been dented by Canadian immigration authorities.
Another factor which Is mak-
| lug the situation more urgent, ac
cording to ISS officers, is the withdrawal from the refugee field of
the International Refugees Organization next fall.

A day's outing of skiing is offered to all foreign students on

Prompted by confusion and discontent In the student 'body, Stu*
dent Council authorised Charlie
Flader. to ..organise a committee
and to present' a full report on
present conditions.
Committee metrtbers were Al
Diamond and Danny Goldsmith.
- The committee found that book-
Store prices are 'reasonable" and
that many student complaints
were only the result of ignorance
and misunderstanding.
•TUOINT COMPLAINT*
Primary student complaints in
the past have included high cost
of texts, poor service, and faculty
discount,
Investigating   text   book   costs,
the committee determined that average prices at UBC were consid-1
erably  lower  than  In  downtown
Vancouver   stores.
A similar comparison with University of Toronto prices showed
Instances of higher costs at both
universities.
CHEAPER AT UtC
"Random samples of textbooks
taken for this report indicate that
prices of books in tha bookstore
are cheaper than those from other
local sources," the report said.
Reasons given for lower University of Toronto prices was that
UBC bookstore must pay a freight
rate on most books, while U. of T.
has little or no such cost.
Freight rates generally amount
to about. 8 per cent of the(c©St
of the book, the report"added.
UC bookstore has a mark-up
of approximately 20 per cent on
most books.
WAGES   BOOST   PRICE
Seven per cent of this mark-up
covers overheard which Is basically wages. Three per cent goes
to student workers.
Eight per cent handles freight
costs, and the remaining five per
cent is reserved for losses due to
overstocking, etc.
Maintenance of the bookstore Is
handled by the general administration fund of the university, and
manager Jack Hunter receives a
budget at the beginning of each
year. He presents a written report
to Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie at the
end of the year.
LARGER QUARTERS
In November, 1950, a Canadian
Association of College Book Stores
was formed to deal with publishers,
and possibly to buy and sell overstocked books from each other.
"More spacious quarters would
probably eliminate the complaint
of poor service, which is often
caused by congestion in the store
at the present time," said Charlie
Flader, chairman of the committee.
Faculty discount exists because
publishing houses offer a 15 per
cent discount to all faculty members. Complaints of students that
professors were purchasing texts
for students tilth their discount
privellges are generally unfounded,
the report says.

Senior   Editor   This   Issue—MARI  STAINSBY
Associate   Editor—JIM  R088 B
We Like It This Way
The Ubyssey has been a trifle amazed
at the type of storm aroused by John Brocklngton's blast at the Mussoc spring production.
One letter-to-»the-editor writer went so
fer as to say Mr. Brockington's "column is not
.ithe place fbr criticism of student. . . productions . . ."
We are prepared to concede that Mr.
Brockington's sledge-hammer technique was
not the best possible choice. A satirist, for
instance might have been much more effective.
But this is all beside the point.
We have always contended that columnists have the right to say what they wish—
provided they stay within the boundaries laid
down by the laws of libel.
Freedom of expression is far too precious
a thing to tamper with.
Moreover, Ubyssey columnists have always served a spark-plugs for student discussion. Their function is not to lay down
the ultimate truth. It is simply to express and
defend, to the best of the writer's ability, a
particular viewpoint.
Too many writers of the letters-to-the-
editor which filled Tuesday's page three weue
working from a gross misconception of the
columnist's duties.
If signed columns are not the place to
criticize student activity, where is that place?
A More Cautious Choice
If members of UBC's Civil Liberties
Union are smart, they'll tread more cautiously this year in their search for the next
recipient of the Garnett Sedgewick award.
„ The stir they created by giving the civil
liberties placque last month to Dr. A. E.
Cooke was not, as CLUnionists charged, the
fault a prejudiced press.
Dr. Cooke was discussed in a Vancouver
Sun editorial at the time the award was
announced, and the point The Sun made was
that the former St. John's United Church
minister hd not only instituted some laudable
public discussions in his church but had also
gained a wide reputation as ah adamant prohibitionist.
The CLU's subsequent contention that
The Sun had unfairly delved into the man's
past in order to throw cold water on the whole
project is sheer hogwash.
It was on the basis of the man's record
that the award was supposed to be made, and
The Ubyssey believes that the CLU neglected to gain all the facts about Dr. Cooke before making its decision.
We're not assuming that a man can't be
anti-liquor and an advocate of civil liberties
at the same time. But we do contend that no
one can remain consistent if he preaches
civil liberties on one hand and the stern and
binding measures of prohibition on the other
Furthermore, the CLU bungled the
chance it had to gain some favorable publicity, by going over the head of their publicity
representative and inssuing a confusing array
of press releases at various unco-ordinated
times.
The CLU can't pass the buck on to the
public by claiming that more outsiders should
exercise their rights to nominate Sedgewick
award candidates. It's up to the club to sell
the project to the masses—if it can.
We urge all our readers on and off the
campus to submit their,ideas to the CLU for
the next award presentation.
But the real onus is on the Civil Liberties Union to find a person who, unlike Dr.
Cooke, is beyond reproach.
If the CLU doesn't mend its ways, w.»
fully expect to see the day when the honor
of the award has been destroyed by the
feet that has been indiscreetly handed out to
dubious citizens who can blow both hot and
cold with the same breath.
Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
Your editorial 'No Sectarianism"
Here' has come to my attention
and whilst fully appreciating this
expression of «ome student opinion I would say that so far as I
am 'aware there is no indication
that the Board of Governors of
our State University Is going to
"stuff the issue off by throwing
open courses" at affiliated (yet
indepedent) privaitely financed
Theological Colleges, "without the
gates." And for those suggesting
that Theology is not worthy 6f objective study at the university
level it is worth indicating that
for very -many years academic credit has been sranted by our "neutral" university for Theological
courses taken by students registered in the affiliated colleges of
Theology. Again, as a graduate
of UBCand of an affiliated College, and as holding a basic graduating degree in Theology from the
oldest university in the English-
speaking world, I would state quite
dogmatically (ln spite of the university act) that both Theological
Colleges have manifested far less
of an 'indoctrinating spirit,' where
the fullest possible freedom is allowed in classes in the scientific
investigation of the literature of
our Faith, and that in many cases
far freer than I found manifested
in many of the popular "potted"
students may or may not "have
stated clearly their demands for
an unbiased analysis of religion,"
yet one doubts whether the writer
of your editorial has thought out
' fully the 'impossible' Implications
of this statement in any field of
study.
Thomas Bailey,
Oeneral Secretary of the SCM
at UBC and Professor of New Testament   Studies  at   the  Anglican
Theological College.
As I See It
By Joan Baited
Dear Sir:
Because of the ambiguity of the
wording of my recent letter to the
Ubyssey, certain misinterpretations have been made of both
what I intended to say and what 1
had hoped to achieve.
My entire purpose was to draw
to the attention of the administration certain acts regarding the university eating places which I
thought should be investigated in
the Interests of the university. 1
am now informed that such an Investigation has taken place and
has satisfied the university officials.
W my action has caused any
harmful repercussions 1 am very
sorry, since my sole Intention
was to help the university in solving Its eating-place problems.
Yours very trilly,
Alvin   Nemetz.
The Vancouver Little Theatre Association has picked sure-fire dynamite in their
latest production "Another Part of the Forest." It is to be their Dominion Drama Festival entry and will be given again in the
University Auditorium late in March when
the other B.C. entries are presented.
Lillian Hellman's play is one of the most
powerful and skillfully written dramas of the
modern American stage.lt is an early picture
of the same characters who are portrayed in
her well-known study of southern corruption
"The Little Foxes," and as exposes of human
relationships both plays are exciting and profound.
In casting, the Little Theatre has chosen
some of the most experienced and talented
actors in Vancouver. Verlie Cooter as the ec
centric dominated little mother gives a really
brilliant performance. Arthur Broughton
playing the sinister brother Ben is also outstanding in both characterization and timing,
and Reginald Bristowe as the ruthless Marcus
Hubbard gives a strong and intelligent portrayal. Nancy Brown as Regina was rather
disappointing. She lacks the expected stage
prescence, but her performance is understanding if not as positive as could be desired.
Unhappily the production is very rough
and unfinished. The second act lags badly
because the actors are inadequately rehearsed. Gordon Adaskin's set is both interesting
and flexible, and on the whole "Another Part
of the Forest" is a rewarding, stimulating
production.
Dear Sir:
When a leader and his company of
singers—all   humdingers,
So construe again llght-operatlc

Our  capacity  for  musical  enjoyment—not deployment,
Is Just as "fine" as any other man's
—"Honest" man's.
Indignation    we    with    difficulty
smother—hardly   smother,
When constabulary duty is not
done—or undone.
Ah,  take one  consideration   with
another—learned  brother,
Any critic's lot ls not a happy one.
Yours for sincere accuracy,
Harold Chetkow,
4th Year Arts.
Dear Sir:
The most refreshing and salutary campus occurrence of recent
months was the review of "The
Gondoliers" hy Mr. John Brockington.
The flood of naive, uninformed
and downright silly comment in
Tuesday's Ubyssey should amply
demonstrate to your critic that
even more plain talk Is necessary
before the mlasmic haze of mediocrity in taste can be dispelled.
Not one solitary remark ln those
letters betrayed the slightest symptom of self-examination. A standard of artistic judgement requires
hard work but it is not Impossible.
Those who have been too lazy and
Indifferent to acquire one should
strive for humility and Improvement.
Those who can recognize a
standard must have the courage to
state their views unequivocally
event at the expense of being called snobs. This is especially true
of the critic whose task ls educational and who cannot with Integrity compromise with attitudes
of myopia, blunt Insensltlvity, insularity or hypocrisy. Of course
the critic arbitrates. His task is
to educate taste and to maintain
standards by constant vigilance.
He cannot morally avoid the obligation to criticize openly everything and anything which jeopardizes good taste and judgement.
Mr. Brockington is a very young
critic but he has sound musical
training and provocative discernment. Writers of Tuesday's diatribes would do well to take his
advice to heart.

honest expression of opinion is so
hard to come by these days, particularly   among  critics,   that  we

Dear Sir:
The temper tantrums and near
hysteria provoked by Mr. Borck-
lugton's forthright criticism concerning Mussoc's lack of artistic
standards demand a reply by a
music lover.
Mr. Bogas' "arrant nonsense"
mistakes criticism of artistic incompetence for a personal attack.
Mr. Brocklngton's column ls precisely the place to "air his views
on the merits of Messrs. Gilbert
and Sullivan's works" and "to crusade for Art and Culture as he
view* them," whereas the Philistines repercussions Imply that the
funotion of an honest critic is to
act as a puhlic relations man, a
back-slapper and a huckster.
Not only does Mussoc's obsession with mediocrity Indicate a
shocking poverty of Imagination,
but if their attempt at "The Gondoliers" Is the cumlfnatlon of 21
years of effort, then surely some
change ls warranted.
May I suggest to Mussoc that
there is a wealth of 18th century

Locals Move
To Ice Final
Meet Nanaimo Friday
In Free Press Opener
UBC Thunderbird hockey team advanced to the final
of the Free Press Trophy competition- this week by virtue
of two straight wins over the Vancouver Commercial League AM-Stars. The locals won the first game 9-5 in overtime
and completed the rout with an 8-5 win at the Forum on
Tuesday night as part of the successful Art Schuman Memorial Night. ,

NEW CLUB
Both games of the series
were very faat and rugged with
crowd pleasing hockey throughout. In both contests the
'Birds jumped into first period
leads, wilted in the Interim
period, and fought back to win
going away In the third.
Gunner Bailey was the big
gun in the local attack as he
scored 2' goals and played a
smart two way game throughout. His continued hustle made
him the most dangerous man
on the Ice for the locals. Haas
Young also clicked for 2 goals
despite the fact that he had
two men checking him every
time he was on the Ice. His
brilliant s'tlckhandlng ability
b r o ught repeated plaudits
from the capacity house.
HAT  TRICK
Boh Lindsay was the big star
on offence for the locals as he
gathered a total of 5 goals, 3
of them in Mondays game for
his flrst hat trick in a Varsity
uniform. His play throughout
the entire season has been one
of the big features of the success of the club which to date
has lost only one game In ten
starts.
Don Adams In the local nets
continued to play the quality of
hockey that has marked him
as one of the top goaltenders
on the coast in any league.
Some of the saves he registered in the last game were of the
miraculous variety and drew
a tremendous ovation from the
Memorial night crowd.
MtIT NANAIMO
The Thunderbirds are now
slated to play the finals of the
Coast series in Nanaimo on
Friday night, with the second
game going Saturday afternoon
ln Nanaimo.
The locals should rate as
slight, favorites to bring home
the silverware on their showing In the past few games.

Is He Is, Or Is
He Ain't Like Mike
By AL MacGILLIVARY
He isn't short, fat or cigar smoking; in fact he doesn't
resemble boxing promoter Mike Jacobs in any physical
sense but this last two weeks Dick Penn has been tabbed
as the biggest promoter of all time with his intramural show.
For   two   weeks   now   Penn    >
has directed the flow or clavet
In and out of that Uttle ring
settled deep within the confines  of  the  stadium.
Today, and no doubt he will
be overjoyed, the eliminations
end.
*r *P *r
Dick tells us that Dave
Brown, he of profesional boxing arbltlng will be on hand to
handle the ten bouts. Brown
is from the Amateur Boxing
Commission.
"These fights have a lot of
appeal,*' said Penn," aud I'd
like to see good crowd out
Friday.
"Last year we had over 1000
people watching in tiie old gym
and i expect to see the same or
more number this year."
Last year the team title was
won   by   Kappa  Sigs.
Pete Worthlngton was the
winner of the title for which
all contestants will be shooting
--Varsity   Hoy.
Pete met this year's referee
■Phil Anderson ln the final to
walk off with the title for the
best performance of the evening.
'r V *r
Ringside experts arc picking a heavy puncher Drew Mc-
Taggart as the fellow to beat
this year.
McTaggart has flattened via
the KO route, three candidates
in the eliminations. And he
looks better and better In
every flight out. He's in the
145-115 pound class.
In the under 145 class Cas-
paron and Jack Smith tangle
while in the Open Danny
Oliver and Dick Stevens meet.
Oliver i.s reputed to posses
a little more polish than the
rangy Stevens. However Stev-
vens Is the harder puncher.
They say when he lands one
yon don't stand up. For a while
anyway.
CALIFORNIANS PRACTISE
FOR WORLD CUP SERIES
University of California, who meet UBC Thunderbirds
have been practicing for the World Cup series.
The Californians have been playing games with UCLA
