The UBC team, comprised of
Poster  Isherwood,  third  year

law will argue the affirmative
of the resolution "that the activities of labor unions are detrimental   to   the   welfare   of
Canaaa."
At the same time Edsel Olsen, third year law and Von
Lyon, fourth year arts, will argue the negative of the same
resolution" against debators
from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.
From Alberta will come Terry

FRESHMEN,  ENGINEERS
TO  SETTLE  DIFFERENCES
Those traditional enemies, freshmen and engineers,
will have another go at settling their age-old differences
next week.
Apple-cheeked freshmen have challenged the burly
boys in red to a basketball game Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. in
the university gymnasium.
The game has been billed as "strictly a grudge affair"
by members of the freshman class. At press time no engineers could be contacted to comment on the challenge.
Endicott Hits At
  »
French In Viet Nam
, Mmm M j^
To Exploit Indo Chinese People
"The French have had it in Indo-China," Steve Endicott,
secretary of the National Federation of Labor Youth, told a
student meeting Tuesday.
Mr. Endicott was one of two^
speakers addressing the United Nations Club on the subject of Indo-
China. The other, M, Paul de Marcy,
a graduate from the Sorbonne, and
a lecturer with the UBC French
department, defended the French
position in Indo-China.
Mr. Endicott said the French had
no right in Indo-China, and had
been virtually driven out by the
Viet Namese people in an unpopular and costly war.
How did the French get into this
mess, he asked. Because of the
universal hatred of the Viet Namese for the French oppressors and
because of a desire for independence which is sweeping Asiatic
countries.
"Fiance took over the country
by armed force in order to exploit
the people. They brought forced
labor and the concentration camp.
When the Japanese invaded in 1941
ihe Frencli co-operated with them.
The Viet Namese under Ho Chi
Minh led the resistance movement,
and by the end of the war 90 per
cent of the country had been taken.
"In 1H45 the French recognized
Ho by a treaty which allowed
French troops to remain In the
southern area around Saigon. The
French set up a puppet government
under Rao Dai and attempted to
seize Viet Nam. The war started
In 1947 ahd Is ending in complete
defeat for  France."
Defending the French position
M. tie Marcy said that It was
France's duty to remain in Indo-
China and to defend the people
against Communist aggression.
"It is not to France's advantage
to remain in Indo-China," he stated. "The war is costing France soldiers and money that she just
doesn't have.'
AUS President
Threatens to Join
Engineer's Society
President of the Arts Undergraduate Society is contemplating joining the engineers.
AUS president Bill Neen said'
Wednesday after a general arts
meeting where less than 40 members showed up, that he should
resign as president of AUS and
join the engineers where "my work
would at least be recognized."
Neen complained to The Ubys-
sly of the poor turnout after having sent notice of the meeting in
a letter to each individual Arts-
men, over 1800 altogether.
"Thirty-one members pf the society turned up. for the start of the
meeting, and a few straggled ln
later," Neen said.
"If myself and the rest of the
executives didn't have a few friends
there, the room would have been
practically empty."
Neen said that the rest of the
members present were from "a
lobbying group on the campus who
wanted to. swing across a motion."
The AUS executive sent out letters to each Artsman on the campus over a week ago, notifying
them of the meeting ln Physics 200
at 12:30 p.m.
When notification is given of a
meeting 10 days ahead of time, the
quaruin at the meeting is any
amount that shows up, by AUS constitution.
"The meeting we bad was a good
one," Neen said. "The only thing
wrong with It was the lack of students."
LEGION CANTEEN COFFEE

Business booms at the Legion Canteen.
They are still selling coffee at only seven cents a cup
while every other coffee shop on the campus charges eight
cents. Even at this reduced price the Legion manages io

Victoria College
To Benefit From
UBC Publications
Victoria College will be kept
well Informed on activity at UBC
cil is put into effect next fall.
Chuck Marshall, public relations
officer, announces that, the AMS
will install a bookshelf at Victoria
College, containing all UBC publications. These would include The
Ubyssey, Totem, Tillicum, Calendar, etc.
Dr. J. Ewing, principal of Victoria College, stated that he thinks
the idea is very commendable, said
Marshall, but he suggested that any
action be postponed until next fall,
when the new college library will
be built.
Purpose of the bookshelf, said
Marshall, was to make material
available to students at Victoria
College who are Interested In UBC.
The bookshelf was suggested by
Marshall after he made a visit to
Victoria College during the Christmas holidays.
Another idea tabulated to produce a closer tie between Victoria
College and UBC is the production
of a Ubyssey supplement, which
would be sent to the college students.
Arrangement has already b$e>i
made for Victoria Student Council
to visit I'BC campus in the near
future, a*nd to sit In on a meeting
of I'BC student council,

Misguided Duty
Student Council and the CCF club have
kissed and made up over the issue of clubs
getting permission to sponsor outside speakers on the campus.
Or, more accurately, the CCFers went
to student councillors; Who magnanimously
''forgave" the socialists for failing to comply
With the letter of the law dealing with such
matters.
We are glad that our local socialist* can
go into and come out of a spat with student
authorities without feeling that they must call
all comrades into an out-and-out revolution.
And we are grateful that we have such
a generous body of Student Councillors as
our leaders. Lesser men than Midwinter would have had the CCF executive
in irons, rather than merely on the carpet,
|y this time.
But somehow the whole affair leaves The
Ubyssey singularly unimpressed with our
student administration.
Midwinter's move was obviously designed as a slap on the wrist for club lead-
Tempus Fidgets
Time is fast running out while Student
Council, UBC Administration, and teacher
trainees continue to toss the ball around over
the question of whether the University this
year will entertain high school delegates at
a look-see tour of the campus.
Our student teachers plead, quite understandably, that, while they've sponsored the
high school visits in past years, they simply
can't give up the necessary time.
Student Council complains less convincingly of a time shortage, while UBC Administration is still publicly silent on the
issue. .
Council offered earlier to organize the
visit, which would bring high schoolers here
from all over B.C., on the condition that the
University put up the money.
But a Council spokesman said Thursday that he doubted if time would permit the
fulfillment of this kind of a bargain.
A project such as this, offering a first-rate
opportunity for good public relations with
B.C. citizens, should not be allowed to die
ers neglecting their duties as outlined in the
AMS Constitution.
As such, it was an effective reprimand.
But it was also so pointless that it strikes
us as being one of the most childish concern**
of Student Council all year.
We are well aware that Midwinter Was
only doing his duty.
But we see a distinct parallel here between Council's attitude and the attitude of
city police who arrest Jaywalkers and pinch
Fan Tan players while failing to capture
more than a small fraction of tht thugs and
bandits terrorizing our citizens daily.
The Ubyssey suggests that there are a
great many issues of far more importance
with which Student Council might concern
itself at this time.
One problem they might work on immediately is:
How can students be sure of electing &
council that will interprgt (and, if necessary,
gain amendments to) our Constitution, Without losing their sense of values?
from the rigors of buck-passing.
We hope that the three groups involved
v/ill settle the problem, settle it quickly, and
come up with the appropriate answer.
Clever is the butcher these days who
can make both ends meat.
A friend of ours complains that the price
of liquor is so high today that a man
can hardly afford to eat.
Our Canadian Legion canteen has managed to hold coffee prices down to seven
cents despite price jumps elsewhere on
the campus. We wish local butchers could
be as successful in making both ends
meat.
Mr. Keyes-Beech of International
News Service says that Mr. Truman has
muzzled General MacArthur. Mr. Howard Handleman, of Associated Press says,
however, that General MacArthur has
muzzled Mr. Keyes-Beech. Which leaves
just who to muzzle Mr. Handleman?
Religion and Life   *««. t. ■.»*
* The article contained below,
written by The Rev T. Bailey
of Anglican College, USC, has
bean written In connection
with the Religion and Life
Week, to be held at the University from January 22 to 26
Inclusive. The Rev. Bailey's remarks may help to start Religion and Life Week out on an
sound footing and may be appreciated by the student body
as a whole.
—The Edttors.
From January 22nd to January
20th UHC students will participate
in a series of conferences and addresses designed to examine the
relationship ot religion and life.
Any earnest anti thinking Christian will agree that there cannot
be a full life without religious ex-
perience.
All too popularly the Christian
Religion in defined in terms which
suggest that it is merely matted
of the emotions, as it' the will of
man was his whole personality.
''Christianity Involves the whole
man, which includes man's mind
and body. Some people think that
religion Is like music or baseball,
nil right for some people and not
for others. Christianity is all right
dn moderation, but some people
take It all too seriously und become cranks.
Christianity is a railh which involves the WHOLK man and every
num. It concerns every single as-
•pect and detail of everyday living.
It believes Unit basic Reality b'
■Spiritual and therefore everyday
'Hellglon is fundamental in our
Society and is therefore not at
variance with the rest of mans
knowledge, but rather it is tli"
"cement"   which   holds   the   whole
structure together. Christianity
passes judgment upon man and
upon his society and knowledge be
cause it sees man and bis world
ln the light of Eternal Truth which,
it believes is given in Revelation.
The Spirit gives meaning and relevance to the Material. Religion
has to do with life.
,The world today faces conflict
and ideological tension. A world
which denies the reality of the
Spirit may be attracted to 'isms' be
cause they vainly Imagine them to
stand for social justice and the
elevation of the poor although their
appeal is often to class resentments and bidden hatreds. A de
mocracy devoid of the Spirit or
'cement' of Christianity may only
be another form of commercial
exploitation and class antagonism.
A man or woman devoid of the
Spirit or 'cement' of Christianity
may be an undermlner of all that
is worth while in our society and
way of life.
The thoughful person today, does
not. need brighter propaganda but
more education. Propaganda plays
on the emotions and assumes men
ore morons, Education assumes
men have immense spiritual capacities, It treats men as personalities. It is not contemptuous of
persons, it appeals to personal
respect.
Christian doctrine, If properly
expressed, claims to exert a far
deeper appeal at every level of life
than the 'Isms.' Most people do not
understand their own religion sufficiently. This Is very much the
case at the University level where
llie rest of knowledge is so far
ahead ol* tho individual's religious
knowledge. Most students are
never given u chance to advance on
their "Sunday School" concepts (If
any) of what Is involved In the
Christian Way of Life. The rest ot
knowledge has taken over so much
of the worldly outlook that "the
heart of our religion has been covered with fat and can hardly beat."
The Religion and Life Week being
sponsored by the SCM is an opportunity for students of the University to hear the Christian point of
view and of the Integration of that
point of view with the rest of human knowledge.
Letters To The Editor
Editor, The UbysSey,
Dear Sir:
Our attention has been called to
the recent address before the UGC
Peace Movement made by Alex L.
Gordon, UFAWU business agent
and LPP candidate in the 1945
provincial election.
Mr. Gordon Is reported to have
denied charges of anti-regilious
action made against Communist
governments in eastern Europe.
As his statements may be somewhat misleading to the uninformed,
they cannot be passed by without
comment. •
The philosophic basis ot Marxian Communism, according to Le-
uin, is: "Absolutely atheistic and
definitely hostile to religion." Alt
religious notions are an unspeakable abomination. Every defense
or justification of the idea of God
Is a justification of reaction" for
the concept "bas always Involved
the*ldea ot slavery." Marxism, Lenin maintains, is Materialism. "As
such tt is relentlessly opposed to
religion. This ls beyond doubt, tn
the eyes of thfe Bolshevik (I.E. Communist) Party, religion Is no pri-
vftte affafr. We must fight religion
-that Is the A.B.C. of Marxism..
The much-touted«Constitutlon ot
the USSR once granted nominal
freedom to religious bodies: "Freedom tor religious and anti-religious propaganda Is recognised for
all citizens." This, however, was
later modified to: "Freedom tor .religious confession and antl-reHgl-
ous propaganda Is recognised far
ill eltliena." Thi* is a very different state ot affairs, as propaganda
was to be all on one side while
all educational philanthropic social and practical activities are tor-
bidden to religious bodies.
The result Is that religious activities In the Soviet Union are pra-
tically limited to ritual services
and the sacraments.
Although remaining hostile to religion Communism has come to
feeognlie that the church has its
ales, especially In wartime. Accordingly the Orthodox Church in
AUSSia Was made a showpiece in
WeHd Wfcr II to reassure the Western 'Democracies. The same church
was Uied to solidify the home front
add Witt over the remaining be
llsvers, and to make use of complacent priests for propaganda purpose*.
htow thit the war Is over, the
Commnnlsts have reverted to type,
hilt still use elements of the Orthodox church for political  ends
ln satellite countries, favoring it
With special privileges. It Is calculated that the other religious
denominations, both Catholic *hd
Protestant can thereby be weakened.
Hence, when Mr. Gordon mentions that .certain churches ire
being rebuilt in Poland, It Is very
likely that they are Soviet-sponsored Orthodox churches, and that
none are to be given to other religious sects.

The editors of The Ubyssey regret the error recorded in an article appearing in Thursday's paper
by Michael Hind-Smith entitled
"UN and the EaBt." The error
changed the whole meaning of Mr.
Htnd-Smlth's remarks. The incorrect passage read, "Are we to allow a monopoly to the Communists
over the aggressive forces?" It
should have tead "progressive forces," Our apologies to Mr. Hind-
Smith for the typographical error.

Letters To
The Editor
Editor The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
This is to express publicly mnny
thanks to Ethiopian Students An
sodation in North America and its
president Taffara De Gueffe a student of this university.
I am  sure that everybody who
attended   their   Christmas   tea   at
Union College on Sat,, Jan. 6 will
join with me in this appreciation.
Sincerely,
J. Coutsoudakis.
Editor The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Do students and the faculty df
UBC realise that Were is a school
ot social work, on the campus—a
school that bas gained momentum
and recognition throughout Canada
and the United States? This recognition bas been accomplished
almost single-handed under the
able administration of Miss Marjorie J Smith, a woman with foresight to the betterment of not only
the School of Social Work but tho
University of British Columbia.
Yet, at the Bostock Lecture, she
was not acknowledged or Introduced to the student body. She was
very much present on the platform,
as you will recall, on the right
side of Dr. Davidson, tbe guest
speaker. Such an oversight was
an outrage not only to MlSs Smith
but to the university. Certainly, the
dictates of any university, be It
small or large, would not fall in
such matters of common etiquette.
Considering the content of Dr.
Davidson's lecture, regarding the
importance of Public Welfare and
Its far-reaching progress ln Canada,
I wonder If you realise that Miss
Smith has had no small part in
this undertaking, Not only hat
she given, seltlessly, ot her ta)
ents and time to the betterment
of British Columbia's Public Welfare, but she has been .preparing
students, professionally, to meet
the very qualifications and stand
aide advocated by Dr. Davidson
as the basts for Sound Publlc^el-
fare Administration. This is no
small task—a task often taken tor
granted or -completely Ignored by
the very people Who will benefit
—you and myself.
Is lt asking too much that Miss
Smith he given the recognition
due her? Just stop long enough
and think ... If you do not know
the answer, It is time you Investigated your School of Social Work,
Its administrative head, and your
functions. As Intelligent students
you need to know that there Is a
School ot Social Work and that
tt ls part of your university. You
have as much right to he proUd
of He accomplishments and Miss
Smith as do the social work students.
May a little light be shed.
Sincerely yours,
Eugene A. Ahway.
(and all students of
social work.)

He is just one df the hundreds
who during the day will
drop into the branch bank
around the corner.
Savings depositors with their pay cheques
... retail merchants with the day's cash...
people consulting the manager about loans,
others cashing cheques ... it is all part of
the daily work of the branch bank.
In ten years the number of accounts
maintained by bank depositors has grown
from 5,000,000 to 8,000,000.
This shows how Canadians have come to
count on their local banks for a great
variety of services. The banks keep pace
with the growing needs of the nation.

"have a vital role to play'' in future
development of northern B.C.
"A good press ls essential to the
development of the north country,"
Mr. Murray stated, "but It Is difficult to lure newspaper men from
the bright lights or the city."
The Cariboo is a land of opportunity for doctors, lawyers, agriculturalists, engineers, teacherB and
other technical or professional
people, Mr. Murray said.
Development in the north Is hindered by the lack of a railroad, ho
claimed. "An extension of the

CLASSIFIED
Snow Entails
No Expense
This week's falling snow has not
.Vet caused the university' any extra
expense.
Jack Lee, superintendent of buildings and grounds stated that thu
regular staff has so far kept sidewalks clear of snow and Ice. Roofs
of buildings and roads have not
yet given any trouble.
Should considerably more snow
fall, extra men Will be hired and
bulldozers will be sent oUt.
"BUt we're keeping our fingers
crossed that it won't get any
worse," Mr. Lee added.
Closing of Library
Blamed on Students
Unruly conduct of students was
blamed by Leslie W. Dilnlop, UBC
librarian, for the closing of the
Library during scheduled athletic
events.
In reply to' a letter from Alma
Mater Society which stated tho
recommendation of the Undergraduate Societies Committee regarding the closing ot the Library during athletic events, Mr. Dunlop
said: "Last year the library found
it Impossible to keep order during
the UBC football games."
Students went to the roof of the
buildings, leaned out of windows
and caused disturbances in the
reading rooms, Mr. Dunlap maintained.
"If the Library can find tlu>
Kinds for hiring the guards necessary to maintain order in the building during football games, we shall
be glad to remain open at such
times in the future," he concluded.
Annual UBC, High
School Conference
May Be Cancelled
Annual high school conference,
a regular feature at UBC for many
years may be cancelled this year,
because of lack of money and persons willing to organize it, a stu
dent councillor said Thursday.
A meeting will be held with administration officials this week to
determine whether "any money will
be forthcoming from them to help
stage the conference.
The Alma Mater Society has offered to organize and handle the
complete program for the conference, which is designed to acquaint
students from all parts of the province with the educational opportunities at UBC.
The conference, originally organized by the UBC Teacher Training class, has become too big for
this small group to handle, according to the student councillor.
"If students are going to take
this on they should appoint someone at the beginning of the year
who will be concerned with nothing else,"  tihe councillor said.

Committee Reports
Stuart Back Again
But Southcott Out
By  DOUQ
The confident smile which
flashed over the face of Jack
Pomfret with the news of the
return of high-scoring Ron
Stuart, vanished almost as
quickly when he learned that
ace forward John Southcott
will be out for several games at
least.
Southcott, who was Injured
ln last week-end's game against Central, broke a bone ln his
ankle. Although not serious, the
Injury will keep him Inactive
for some time.
Poor grades forced Stuart to
drop from the Thunderbirds at
Christmas, but lie has decided
to help out the squad when
they trek down south of the
border this week-end to meet
St. Martins and College of
Puget Sound Loggers.
The Hirds will meet St.'Martins Friday at Olympia in what
HAVVKES
should be a rugged match for
the locals. The Olympia team
has lost to Eastern, Pacific Lit-
them, and Central but have a
win over powerful Whitworth.
Eastern Washington have
been the only victors against
the Loggers who have won
their other three Conference
games.
Pomfret will be taking with
him on the trip: Louis, Phillips, Mulhern, Blsset," Upson,
Yorke, Desaulnelrs, Stuart and
Don Hudson.
Constant work-outs, with the
accent on shooting practice,
have sharpened the Birds up
considerably, and, with a little assistance from THime Luck,
they might break their four
game losing  streak.
Geoff Craig, ti'8", who is not
famous for his jumping abilities. Injured his w'riat in practice this V/eek. Craig was taking a shot under the basket,

WORKING WITH CANADIANS IN EVERY WALK OF tIFE SINCE  1817
UBC female volleyballists
packed themselves off the gym
floor yesterday after suffer-'
ing their second successive
defeat at the hands of Powell
River high school girls.
The UBC team lost the second set of games three contests to one In one or the most
entertaining exhibitions of ball
seen this year.
The UBC girls had previously travelled to the papertown
to play and had been defeated
there also.
The locals had hoped to avenge themselves for their earlier defeat and went, onto the
floor with fire In their eyes.
But the Powell River girls
proved they were quite capable of stopping the varsity
intramural  combination.
UBC won the first game IB-
10 and then proceeded to drop
the next two 15-8 and 15-13.
Particularly outstanding for
the losers were Pat 1V*fcEwan
and Trudy Norman.
Both girls sparked the UBC
losers,
The intramuraltsts attempted
vainly to get back into the
games after leading several
times, but strong play around
the nets hindered them no end.
Powell River continually came
from behind to beat the locals.
Approximately 160 spectators filed Into the gym. This is
more than the boy's teams
have drawn. (Ed. Note—Penn
I didn't write It.)
This ls also (he first effort
to play outside opposition made
by the varsity girls and next
year they hope to have more
experience.
The girls from Powell River
were taken on a tour of the
residences and shown throughout.

SPORTS   NOTEBOOK
Of Pall Malls And Gene
44 j READ," said the enthusiastic young student standing.
A in the doorway, "your column last week and feel you
ianve hit the nail dead centre."
Then without uttering anything else he moved through tbe
(loot- or our llttlo black hole or Culcuttu and plumped himself into
the second and hist seat in the office.
"I," said, he. after surveying tho nmamnzement etched in my
luce, "am dene Smith. I manage the Varsity soccer team which you
wrote about in your last colmun."
Thereupon he pulled rrom his pocket, looking cautiously over
his shoulder to make sine none or the orflce wolves were lurking, a
packet of Pall Malls.
Alter receiving his offer, we sat back ond bad an, contrary to
the Pall Malls, nbbrelvated discussion concerning the local soccer
eleven.
He leaned back on the chair and opened with, "In your column
you gave about the closest Impression of what is happening In the
Vuncouver and District league and Che trouble with the coast league.
You also said we were probably ready for the coast league. I think
you're absolutely correct."
"We* have everything necessary to have a place In the coast
league. There's the stadium, with grass too, a supporting body and
a good team.''
He finished speaking momentarily. I took up tbe initiative and
asked rather coyly what happened to the Varsity eleven against a
poorly rated third division team to whom Varsity dropped a Mainland Cup contest two weeks ago.
Old Men Laugh Last
TO THAT question he had a soccer man's ready answer,
"Look,"' he explained, "we go through this first division like
fireballs. Then we are put against a third division team and tha
boys laugh and think of an easy win. 'Just -a bunch of old men to
play against,' they thought, so they take lt easy and we find ourselves the losers.
"Now don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that we're the hottest
team in the league, but I think we have as much right to enter Into
the big loop as any other team."
Having noticed several articles in the dally newspapers Which
stated that the relegation discussion between the district league and
the coast association had hogged, I asked him about it.
"Well the coast league thinks that we assemble too late In the
fall and that we would break up when the school term ends. However I firmly believe that the boys would stay together till our
schedule ran out.
UBC Team  Nice To See
ii\\THy WE play as many games, if not more, In the district
W league than we probably would ln the coast league. As for
forming a team early enough, l think It can be done.
"The football team starts workouts three weeks before we get
back to school so I see no reason why we couldn't do the same."
He then stood up, grabbed for his coat, and commenced making
a  hasty departure.
'Gotta catch a class, see you later,' he said, disappearing through
the doorway.
After lie had left I could not help but feel he had placed a good
argument for his cause.
With a rew minor adjustments the coast league could do themselves a great deal of good with a team like Varsity within their
fold. It would he something to watch a gutty college team playing
as a team bent on receiving no recompense but merely for the
long lost Idea that It is a privilege to play.
Could Be Cozy Deal
A UNIVERSITY eleven playing on Callisters hard surface
would certainly increase the gate receipts of the coast people.
Therefore lt would seem to be advanntgeous to the coast leagues to
make room ror the university team. And they certainly can afford
to move some team out.
But with the two leagues locked in a titanic death struggle It
seems as If there might not be a coast league in operation, we know
it today.
The Vancouver and District league ls where possibly the finest
soccer in this province is played and the coast league, where dead-wood and young Inexperienced juniors are being tried, may be on
it's last reet.
If the two leagues would work In unison there could develop a
set of standard division of play with the very best teams playing
In Callister Stadium and New Westminster.
