III .^iCftnmRAn Red Cross has announced that
 unless blood donations increase today, they
will be forced to close the campus clinic
tomorrow.
As this is the only clinic operating in B.C.,
they must obtain at least 1,000 pints a week
to fill B.C. requirements. If UBC will not
co-operate there is no alternative, as each day
lost may well mean a life.
Faculty totals to date are as follows: Forestry leads with 100 per cent and Social Work
is a good second with 80 per cent of quota.
Nursing has 65 per cent, Agriculture 58 per
cent, Applied Science 52 per cent, Physical
dents Fail In Support Of Drive
Education 42 per cent, Home Economics 46
per cent, Pharmacy 40 per cent, Commerce
39 per cent, Pre Med 36 per cent, Arts 35
per cent, Law 31 per cent, Meds 19 per cent,
Architecture 12 per cent, and Teacher Training 11 per cent.
Total blood donations come to 1,991, only
49.8 per cent of campus enrollment. Only 140
qstudents donated on Tuesday and only 135
yesterday. In order to attain total, 300 are
needed every day. Out of the 49.8 per centage
15.4 were rejects.
So far five Canadian Universities have reported totals.   They are the University of
Montreal with 55 per cent of their quota, Dal-
housie with 52 per cent, Queen's University,
35 per cent, McGill, 25 per cent, and the
University of Toronto, 10 per cent.
It has taken the Red Cross since November
to streamline the taking facilities to enable
students to go through the clinic at 55 an hour.
We are getting 12 an hour.
Tuesday afternoon at the Filmsoc shows a
Red Cross Volunteer Worker was on hand
to take donor appointments. Out of an attendance of 250 she got two donors.
Another well known visitor to the campus
blood clinic was Bill Herbert of tbe CBC who
on Monday became the 1-millionth donor.
Mr. Herbert said that "giving blood has become a habit with me."
Publicity acquired for UBC from the drive
includes TV shots of clinic to be shown on
CBC Toronto, and Radio shows on CKWX
and CKMO.
The 15,000th UBC donor is due to pass
through the clinic shortly and there is a
very strong rumor circulating that he or
she will be 'rewarded with two bottles of
Scotch.

BLOOD DRIVE TO BE PUSHED
BY DANCE AFTER BASKETBALL
Gala "Corpuscle Capers", a dance to publicize the
current UBC blood drive, will be staged immediately following the Evergreen Conference basketball game, Saturday night in the new gymnasium.
Although no blood is to flow during the dance, officials
hope that after students enjoy themselves at this dance
they will rush to the clinic to spill their pint.
Max Buddin's twelve piece orchestra will supply the
music at this sock dance. Admission will be seventy-five
cents per couple, fifty cents single.
It has been announced that a number of pretty nurses
from St. Paul's wUl be attending.
During half time of the basketball game the Phys Ed
faculty will put on a floor display. Page 2

Last year's UBC Blood Drive record has

per cent of the enrolment turned out to donate
Mood.
However, there is hope yet. Yesterday 135
out of the 5,300 students at this university
turned up at the Red Cross.Blood Clinic. Let
them try and beat that as an all-time low.
$B€ has challenged universities across
Canada to compete for the Corpuscle Cup.
From reports across the country it seems that
every university is doing its utmost to win
that cup. We, on the other hand, are at the
.moment sitting back contentedly watching
others bleed for our cup.
It should be unnecessary by now to elaborate on the urgent need for blood and plasma.
Trial By Passport
Being believers in national sovereignty as
we are, we find it difficult to advise or question in matters of state. .This particularly
applies to those state matters of the USA,
which while being strictly matters of internal
policy, nevertheless affect many people outside of that country.
We do not deny her right to protect herself
a'galnst sabotage and in this action to deny
entrance to aliens, whether they be coming
for a short or long stay.
But after we have affirmed this belief we
append, in a hushed voice, Noblesse Oblige.
We feel that the US in all its awesome
power owes a little more to other less fortunate countries than flat, plain unqualified
decisions.
A case in point is (hat of Dr. Denis Lazure,
ex-chairman o fthe NFCUS Internalional Affairs Commission. Dr. Lazure has worked
lor the national students organization of this
country with a fervor which speaks eloquently o fhis French-Canadian background.   '
Why?
Is he or has hf been a Communist? No!
Bis testimonies at various student meetings
and his NFCUS work shows that the most
radical label which could apply u> him is
"liberal Canadian citizen".
Why?
Fishy Eye
or  INROADS OF SOCIALISM
The queetion, "What will Socialism' he like?" is
often asked by the curious and critical, and has
often been answered in curious if not critical ways.
As a new approach, it may he siiKKcsted thai the
Mi fit' studeni has rlOIlle campus experience which
can lead hi intoward the answer. Strange, horrible.
and subversive as it may seem, some aspects of
socialism are prominent in a major campus enterprise which enjoys the suppor! of Liberals, Con-

us or the noil political majority of the student body.

The organizers of past blood drives have worn
themselves into a frenzy trying to put across
that point.
The Red Cross, however, closed down their
downtown clinic in order to be able to handle
the inflow of donors efficiently. Getting a
complete clinic out orfto the campus with
fourteen pints of blood to show for a morning's work is an act.of bad faith on our part,
and the Red Cross has quite rightly laid down
an ultimatum that they will leave at the end
of the week unless a much larger number of
studbnts shows up.
The odds are that we will not retain our
cup this time. We should, however, at least
lie able to show that we tried.
Is or was Denis Lazure a person who would
subvert the principles of our democracies to
an undesirable goal? * No! He has proven
time and again by statement and report that
his consuming ideal is to have Canadian democracy function on the highest possible plane.
But still Lazure has been banned from the
States. '
Why?
It seem;; unlikely under the present American policy that our question will ever be
answered. Thus, by fiat, the US labels a
Canadian citizen as "Undesirable". He has
been tried by an Immigration Law and found
unworthy.
Now surely the greatest power on earth
must realize there are many who will follow
its advice. Surely there will be many Canadian and other doors which will be closed to
Lazun because of this decision. A decision
whicn, because of the nature and the potent
effect of the immigration machinery, gives
lit lie promise of redress, appeal or explanation.
Noblesse Oblige, Uncle Sam. When you
get that big you have to give reasons, you
have to just.
Only a small country can afford to act in
any other manner.

Opposition to the Canadian-
Soviet student exchange Idea
slums partly from misconceptions
of tho nature of democracy, and
partly from ti distorted emphasis
on side issues.
The i|uestion to keep our eye
on this dispute is: Would the exchange help or hinder the cause
of the democratic world. We
ihiuli II Is the nature of democ-
nicy to thrive whenever nil sides
of a case are heard, and to suffer
wlienevcr any side is sup premie I.
To cut off Hludent excising* with
the Sovlel Is lo 'diminish our
i hances of hearing first hand advocates of the Soviet cuHe, and
thus weaken the validity of our
own verdict.
I'o promote the exchange is to
inereuse our knowledge of the Soviet alternative, and thus make
our decision that much more nc-
cui'.ite. We think the cause of the
democratic world will be better
nerved by dose knowledge ol
where and what Its enaniy is than
hy loose notions got at second or
third hand. We want UBC students to get some direct contaci
with freuh. authentic products of
the Soviet regime. We want to
understand the system and the
psychology we are opposing.
If these points are kept In focus
it becomes lees important that we
are unlikely to convert confirmed
StulinlBtB to our view of things iu
six months. Kven It little heud
way Is rtiude on either side we
have gained something nnd levt
nothing by keeping communications open; and it becomes almost
Irrelevant to sny that either out-
system or that of ihe Soviet wi'.l

students. Some of the exaggeiuted
notions expressed about the danger* of having Stalin's advocates
lu our midst have been ludicrous.
l-'inally, we think that the argument that the money Is better
spent on exchanges with student'!
In other free nations Is a poor one.
We already have interchange
with the universities of all tlio
major parts and cultures of the

Oik e a.^ain the 1'IIC-^oviet
students "Xchaugt! is proposed- ■ I
most recently by Dr. W. Rose ami i
Hob Loosnioiv In the Ubyssc).|
I'erhaps tlii- proponents have al-!
ready forgotten A. Y. Vishii sky s !
speech on Draft Declaration ol !
Human Rights, at I'N Genera! ;
Assembly. Dec. !i, l!MS. therefore;
I request your permission to
quote him ;
"Article at) of the draft declar••.-1
tion of human rights . . . reads:
lOvery man has the right to freedom of conviction and freedom
to express them. This right includes . . . freedom to seel;, im
reive and disseminate information and idi.is . . . irrespective of
state boundaries.'' The Soviet del
egation cannot accept the given
article . . . Indeed, tho first shortcoming of this article Is that i'
proclaims so-called freedom in
genereal freedom to disseinin
ate "Information and other ideas '
H'f. Piuvda and Mezhdunarodn-i-
ya Kniga publications).
There is given the official Soviet answer to the proponents
who expeci to exchange intornm-
tion  and other  ideas.
Mo-cover will the proponents
guarantee that the Canadian students will be permitted to return.
If Mr. Loosmore does not, know-
how many foreign "seekers of information"-—newspapermen have !
got lost, behind the Iron Curtain i
then Dr. Rose as a scholar on '
Kastern Kurnpean Affairs should
be able to tell. Perhaps Dr. Rose
could even tell the stories oi
some foreign diplomats who have
vanished there? What, about Dr.
Profi'ittlicli --a Papal N'uneio, Mr.
U'alenberg 11 think tins was hi;

Ilirk an Kstoiiinn I'letiipoieni i

Exchange Again
Kditor,   the   I'byssey.
I lear Sir:
II  seems lh.it  those who so ten
aeiously advocate the Soviet-C I-
nadian student exchange live in
a hazy rc.-rl oi misunderstandlu:;.
They evidently imagine that the
peoples cast of th.. Iron dirtui.i
have el"'ted regimes with whicn
our passionate Internationalists
vaguely disagree, but which the,.-
are prepared to recognize as the
expreascd wish of their neighbors. Hence the arguments that
the only thing necessary to break
down the curtain is to explain t'
the Kastern nations that the wish
means tic harm and will let them
live under the political system
whicn tht.v appare'itly want,
whereupon ,t golden peace wi'l
reign forever.
The reality which our friend"
have so far successfully Ignored,
is that the Communist regimes
are dictalorshlps. maintainin;;
themselvf'ri by force against the
will of the people. This may not
be easily grasped by men for
whom democracy has always been
a   matter  of  course.   Hut  if  they
accept ut least the possibility oi
this explanation, 'hey may n*-i
the idea that were those peoples
free to express I heir real wishes
they would destroy th Cnrtai'i
themselves by simply* llirowiir:
out I heir governments. They had
no en t in I'o, minn the policy <;!
hostility nnd they won't be allowed to play uny lu changing It
not peiiceiully at least. No amouii'.
of tourism can  possibly  help.
What then is the object of tho
proposed exchange? To hear i
few more Communist delegates
tellini; us how happy every nod v
is back there'.' If it (s .Misinformation thai our friends want, I'll
tell them where to get real good
Red papers . . . That may \\<>
cheaper.
J do believe of cour.-e, that the
Curtain won't last, lint it will bo
broken clown by tiie means used
against the late Mr. Hitler, not
by sightseeing tours.

the truth, as easily ascert line I
from govenrnlent statistics, is tha*
these firms do only 17.1 percent of
the logging," Lanskall said.
CONTRADICTS
l.anskall went on to contradi •
(iargrave's statement that Sd pe.
cent of the province's timber cut
is on the coast and that most of
this is Douglas Kir. "The truth i'-
that in 1H51 less than 41 porcen'
of the timber cut lu the coast arc-.i
of British Columbia was Douglas
Kir. and tills can easily beusce •
talnel from the provincial government figures," he charged.
Also under attack was Gat-grave'.*'
assertion    that   "Because    of   In
unique qualities we can sell Don-?
las Kir at high prices with no dif-
licitcly about   finding markets."
COMPETITIVE   SALES
To this Lajiskail commented
"Douglas Kir is an outstanding
wood. However we have to se'l
this wood nil over the world in
competition, first of all, Douglai
Kir Is from the west coast of the
United States and, most Import
uiitly, with Scandinavia, Russia
and many other countries, wood*
of the latter being much closer
to markets and therefore having
it much lower Ireight rate."
Lanakail concluded his talk Instating. "It Is, in my opinion, indefensible that a man in (iargrave'p
position sluMild get up and publicly
make such complete mis-statements of fact when the facts are
available.'

If Miss Dorothy Somerset had

be paving ilu way for berseli
now as one of Canada's leading
musicians.
And CBC would be missing a
foremost stage director and one
of the -.nost vital workers in

Fortunately for I'BC dramatics, Miss Somerset's s'.age flight
soon turned to stage interest,
and the musical career for which
she had prepared herself was
thrown over for the job of theatre
directing.
CBC I'niversity Revue, which
she will co-direct with Don Wilson, is the latest dramatic venture with which she is concerned on campus, and follows the
recently produced Creek [days
of the  Kngiish department.

With another haskethall season
almost over the time Im about clue
lor, the eager beavers to jump on
the Lets Get out of the Evergreen'
bandwagon. Wildly waving Ernie
Nuyh'.uiK supporter in the ulr, they
will point at the Birds' lost and
won column ln Evergreen Conference play and say, "It's the same
old story. Lust year we lost 11
games. This year we have Ion
eight already -and will likely lose
the last  tliree."
But before our friends become
too vociferous in their Hcreams
that we should get away from the
evil influence of the Yankees, let's
look a little closer ut these statistics.
Sure, the Birds have lost eight
games while whining only one.
But a look at the margin of victories ot other Evergreen clubs
over Jack Pomfret's boys is interesting. At the moment someone
tu the back row is screuming th i!
it you gel beat by one point or
by 50 points It's nil the sume( tlia»
dirty little loss goes clown ln Ilu*
records. We'll concede this point
but It stands to reason it we are
getting beat by less in the Evergreen it must imean we ure get-
ling better.
Last season Thunderbirds were
clobbered in the Conference, nnd
we mt'in clobbered. They dldn''
even come close ln the majorlt.v
of the games. They were beaten by
at) points on or.t occasion, by 27 on
another. Average Iobs 'was by 1»>
points.
Won and toft
We have a better club this year
and with a tew breaks Birds c-ouM
have been anywhere from fourth
down to their present position in
the basement. There are seven full
members of the Evergreen Conference: Whitworth, College of Puget
Wound, Eastern Washington, Pacific Lutheran. Western Washington, Central Wushignton, and
guess  who?
At the moment Whitworth and
CPK and Eastern are u little out
of our class in the hoop game.
But it is u toss-up between the
other four clubs. Western. Central,
PLC and I'BC could play each
other all year and their won ami
lost records would be very similar.
Up until last weekend the score
Was this: PLC has beaten UB '
and Western; Western has beaten
Central but lost to PLC unci I'lK":
Central lias lost to everyone but
UBC. Birds have lost to PLC and
Central, but beat Western wh,
beat Central who ...
And so It goes, around and around, like Professor Savery's ami
Harold   Weir's   arguments.
At the moment Birds conldn .
beat Eastern if they played them
every clay ol the week and twice
on Sundays. They might puil an
upset over Whitworth or CPS but
it would be a definite upset.
But if the Birds' Evergreen
fcchedule wilh the other three
clubs was played over, there isn't
a bookmaker in Brock Hall who
would bet on the outcome of any
of the games. Of their eight losses
five hnve been by nine points oi
lens. And nine points is boani-a t
in college ball where you have i.)
band your opponent six or eight
points in the last minute in mi
effort  to  get  control  ot  the  ball.
Birds Like A Bride
Tliunderbirds were more nervous

Crime, Sex, Murder At Noon
UBC students, who for years
have trudged along in blissful
ignorance watching pep meets,
AMS elections, Blood Drives,
graduation ceremonies, Open
House displays and the John
in the women's dormitories, are
about to be exposed to the most
stupendous display since Nero
piddled around with Rome.
•f* *T* *f«
The occasion is the so-called
battle between the Jokers and
the Engineers on the basketball
court today at noon. We used
"so-called"   because   there   is
some doubt here in this corner
that the gorilla men can put
up a battle after having their
intellects taxed so strenuously
by that Ubyssey ad in their
edition of the paper.
Home Ec has gladly offered
to help Hicks and his hicks in
an effort to stop the blood-
crazed Jokers.
*r •?• *r
According to a spokesman
for the Jokers, this is quite all
right as they would love to
tackle some of the stuff hanging over the stoves in the Home'
Ec building.
Engineers will likely be
given t.wo or three hundred
points to help them at the start
of the game, but Jokers still
haven't figured out a way to
lend the Sciencemen some guts.
fft 9p 9f»
Rumour is that Jokers have
imported one J. O'Brien, a
character by the name of Bevo
Francis, and another by the
monicker of Houbregs to help
the Redshirts.
But there is absolutely no
truth to the rumour that Rich
ard Penn will be doing an un-
censored version of the Hawaiian War Chant at half-time.
v *r *p
Speaking of half-time, there
will be a short intermission before and after the slaughter
v/hen Braves will try to cut
down Jayvees.
Some crude hoop artists are
going around spreading lies
that THIS will be the feature
game but don't believe them.
It will only be an interlude
while the main event boys are
readying  bed-pans  and   shotguns.
•t* *T* *T*
Jokers have promised to
keep their fire engine off the
floor if Engineers will take a
saliva test on Bill Inglis before
he runs wild and hurts some
freshette in the audience.
Any resemblance between
basketball and what goes on at
noon will be strictly homicidal.
We'll leave the scientific end of
the affair up to Jayvees and
Braves. •
