 The Daily
No. 67
Student treasurer Paul Plant indicated Monday night
he would seek to have the position of President of Women's
Athletic Association removed from Student Council.
Because of the comparatively small amount budgeted
each year for women's athletics, he said, it did not seem
equitable to retain the seat.
Caught off guard by the surprise move, Jackie Sherman,, present occupant of the Council seat, had no reply.
Plant agreed to hold the move over to a future Council
Fee Increase Proposal Laid Before
AMS Meeting February 23
Battle Royal Will
Shake Up Mock Pari.
Party Leaders Shake Fists And
Hurl Verbal Barrages At Meeting
Tories will not govern for labour and a, CCF government
will riot govern for business charged Frank Lewis, president
of Campus Liberal Club in Mock Parliament address yesterday.
"We intend to create a floor below
Which  none  may  fall,"   he  told   the
sparse student audience.
Deploring the Liberal amalgamation
with Progressive-Conservatives in
B.C.'s Coalition government Lewis
promised that the Liberal government
would represent the best interests of
all classes.    *
Progressive - Conservative speaker
and club president, Marshall Bray
was the only one of the four speakers
who tried to "spark" up this year's
seemingly drab Mock Parliament addresses.
In oldtime, fist-pounding "politic-
allying," Bray told the students that
he and his party would not "footie-
footie" with the- LPP.
He charged the Young Liberals as
only "tiny tots" in the party machine.
That they would not be the ones to
make the policy of the party but that
it is made by the Prime Minister.
As an example, he quoted a plank
in the Liberal platform: "subsidized,
low rent housing for all of Canada."
Then he brought to their attention a
proclamation from Louis St. Laurent
when he strongly stated that there
would be no subsidized housing during his regime.
In a blistering attack Bray charged
the CCF with having one party policv
for the East and a completely different one for the West,
Isobel Cameron, outlining her party's
platform, called for the extension of
B, C. Power Commission, and a provincial housing authority which would
work hand in hand with municipal
and Dominion governments.
Party platform also stressed the
need of a low premium auto insurance styled after Saskatchewan with
premiums about 50 percent less than
those charged by private companies
at present.
Miss Cameron also suggested thai'
the provincial government oould extend free education with profits of
government owned liquor manufacturing plants.
A fully independent Canada
was proposed by John Howard, LPP
speaker who also charged that present
Canadian trade policies were being
formulated in Washington,
"There will be no wars," he told
students, "if we stop the men of Wall
Street and the men of Washington
dictating policies of gentlemen in Ottawa."
"Our only aim," he added, "is to
keep Canada free!" He did not elaborate on the statement.
Mock Parliament elections will beheld in conjunction with the last
round of AMS elections today. Students will be able to vote at any of
the six polling booths on the campus.
Polling will be from 10:00 a.m. to
4:00 p.m.
Lost and Found
Arab CaseG'Blackened'!
Unfairly, Speaker Says
Abundance of Zionist information on the Palestine problem
obscures and "blackens" the Arab case, according to J. V. Macdonald, Vancouver businessman, speaking before a United
Nations Club meeting on Tuesday.
David Silvers, prominent Vancouver ®~ "
lawyer, said that it was ridiculous to
question the existence of Israel for the
state is already a reality, recognized
by 40 nations. He said that the plan
for partition had been recommended
by a United National committee, unbelievably free of prejudice.
The Jews accepted the proposals
while the Arabs rejected them and
immediately prejudiced the work of
the United Nations by committing acts
cf agression. Continuing, he said that
it s "nonsense to suppose that the
Jews were guilty of aggression" the
victims of an attack can hardly be
expected to remain outside the borders
of their aggressor.
Macdonald stated that "Palestine
has been the home of thc Arabs for
1,300 years." If the Jews are justified
in their claims, he went on, "then we
should  turn Canada  back   to  the In
dians,   for   a   similar
situation   exists
At the time of the Balfour Declaration he said, the Arabs comprised 9:J
percent of t'he population. We would
do as i'he Arabs did, he claimed, if
displaced Jews were shipped to Vancouver Island.
There are 5,000 billion dollars worth
ol chemicals and other materials in
the Dead Sea he said and thc wealthy
and powerful Zjpnisls know it.
Nathan Lanjjfu, student and citizen
of the state of Israel stated that there-
was no possible connection between
the Zionists and the Communists, The
Zionists he said are nationalistic, the
Communists' are anything but,
The 'Jews, he went on can help t'he
Arabs in developing the whole midcllo
east. From 1022 to 104.") Jewish hospitals and othet" facilities have reduced
the death rate from 194 to 70.G.
Ponderous Piles
Peeve Pubsters
The fact that UBC students are not
wandering around without their heads
apparenly isn't due to any inherent
qualities of intelligence but the grace
of their anatomy.
If their heads would come loose,
they'd lose them. At least that's the
opinion of Lost and Found officials
down   in  Brock  basement.
"Ubyssey" staff are walking softly
these days. There's been no change
in the editorial policy; it's only because the Pub is so stuffed with lost
articles that members have a hard
time finding places to put their feet.
Pipes, wallets, earmuffs, overcoats
—the Lost and Found has them all.
There's even a book of knitting instructions and a half finished bootee.
There are literally hundreds of
books on every course offered at thc
university and a few more besides.
Lost and Found officials, overwhelmed by the torrent of lost belongings, are muttering darkly about
certain "clueless types" and threatening to sell them or turn them over
to the ISS,
Sludents who are lacking anything
are advised to drop down to the Pub.
"New Powers Or Abolition" Of USC
To Be Asked By Dave Williams
Possibility of another hike-up in the present $16 Alma

Temporary Residences At
UBC To Be Surveyed Soon
Residents Invited To Give Views On
Liabilities And Assets Of Homes
A survey of UBC's temporary housing residences i.s school-1
uled to start this month, under the direction of Dr. Leonard1
Marsh. *  -  '
Residents of Acadia Camp—representing single men and women-and
Little Mountain—married .students-
will be invited to give their views
about university residence and its
advantages and disadvantages, through
a questionnaire, and to assist the
researchers in other ways to get a
good picture of tlie camps and their
pros and cons.
Following a discussion of '.he temporary housing projects between the
president, the deans, and others who
hae been concerned with organizing
this accomodation, it was decided to
ask the Department of Social Work
to undertake a general study.
Dr. Leonard Marsh, well-known
expert in social research, has been
conducting thi.s work for some time-
now, with the help of three postgraduate students who are working
for their MSW degrees, Eve Faweetl,
J. J. Young and Augusta Thoinasson.
Looking to thc future, it is hoped
lhat these studies will assist the
university in shaping its policy for
the building of residences and other
housing   accomodations.
Dr, MacKenzie, in commenting on
the survey said, "I hope that as many
students as possible will take advantage of thi.s opportunity of reporting
on one of the aspects of student
life which has been very much a part
of post-war UBC. In so doing they
will help the university in making
its  [dans  for  the  future,"
All clubs are reminded thai a week's
retire is required before an outside
speaker can be brought to the campus. This enables Student Council to
jtnss   on   prospective   speakers.
"There has been a tendency" says
r hick Turner, (,o-or<;hiiitor "I'or some
clubs lo disregard this ruling.",
Offending campus organizations will
bc 'harshly  dealt with, warns Turner.
The proposed fee increase, revisions
to the constitution of the Undergraduate Societies Committee, and final recommendation of the Plant funds
probe committee will bc debated at
what promised to be one of thc most
crucial general meetings in years.
Paul Plant, AMS treasurer, will propose the fee increase to bridge tho
deficit owing to the Memorial Gym
Kind still outstanding in spite of drastic budget slashes this year.
Said Plant, "I had hoped to retrieve i
38 to 40 thousand dollars of the amountj
owing   thc   memorial   gym.   But   with!
ihi loss on the 1948 Totem, we will pay
back   only   §25,000,   and   this   through
selling    assets   such    a.s    bonds   and
Remaining recommendations of the
Plant probe committee will be discussed.
Outcome of thc general meeting may
well decide thc life or death of the
Undergraduate Societies Committee,
the AMS "democratic voice" and gangling infant of the student government.
Dave Williams, USC chairman will
*go to the students to ask "second
reading" powers to USC and curb the
veto powers of Students Council. By
this revision, a bill turned down by
Council which had passed twice
j through USC, will automatically become law.
In nearly two hours of stormy alignment at Students Council meeting
Monday night. Williams laid the plan
before   the board.
If U.SC i.s not granted this power.
Williams told them flatly-. "I would

Most councillors strongly disapprove of the revision, and refused to
i.pprove the USC minutes.
By Ihe new proposed constitution,
two representatives from each undergraduate society would sit on USC.
Each faculty would have a weighed
vote, proportional to the number of
students  in  tho society.
Some undergraduate societies, Williams told the Daily Ubyssey, feel
lhal council has been autocratic. However, he said, "il has been hard times

letters to the
Editor, Daily Ubyssey, Dear Sir:
The Civil Liberties Union would
like to bring to the attention of the
students the discriminations existing
against the Japanese-Canadians. Thc
discriminations are divided into two
fields. The first are those imposed
by the Federal Government, by
Order-in-Council, during the war.
These Orders-in-Council prohibited,
for reasons of security to the nation
the settlement of Japanese coastal
areas and their free movement in
these areas. These Orders-in-Coun-
cil are due to lapse on March 31,
1949 and all indications seem to be
that they will not be renewed. Tlie
second are those imposed by outdated and outmoded laws of this
province. These laws are generally
of long standing and it requires
action of the Provincial Legislature
to have them removed. Some of the
outstanding examples of violation
of civil liberties now existing against
the Japanese-Canadians are as follows: the Japanese have not the
right to vote in Provincial elections
which excludes (hose in B.C. from
voting in Federal elections, Municipal elections, studying and practicing of pharmacy, etc; other laws
are those which prohibit them from
participating directly or indirectly
in Public Works Contracts and many
others. The CLU feels that it i.s
necessary to take immediate action
and to ask the Provincial Government to remove thc discriminatory
legislation now in effect.
The CLU feels that students can
help in three ways. 1. In the Federal
field they should see that no more
discriminatory laws arc imposed. 2.
By attending a meeting which will
be held in a week or two and giving
Iheir support to a resolution which
will ask the legislature to give the
franchise to the Japanese-Canadians
and to revoke other discriminatory
legislation. 3, By writing a letter
to your MLA or to the Premier asking to support and to give full democratic rights and privileges to citizens of Japan'ese ancestory. The
students at UBC have been, in the
past, the leaders in asking for full
citizenship rights for the Japanese-
Canadians. Wc hope that they will
again be willing to ask their Provincial Government to take action
on this issue.
Yours sincerely,
Louis Bcduz.

And why freedom of the press, so staunchly
supported in professional discourses, may be
hastily shooshed away from the campus when
it. puts in an appearance outside the student
newspaper office.
The undergraduate newspaper then, can be
a Dr. Jekyll or a Mix Hyde. And great variation exists from college to college in the
nature and amount of control—or lack of it—
granted the student staff in its conduct.
Perhaps no undergraduate activity is involved in such difference of opinion a.s to
administration. Even among journalism professors themselvvs there exists the widest disagreement.
Says one, in reply to a survey undertaken
I'or Ihis article: "Administrative or faculty
participation in any aspect of the college
publication is detrimental to the quality ol
lhat, paper, the integrity of its editors, an
insult to any recognizable educational ideals,
and a vicious disservice to the individuals and
tho institution which the paper is supposed
to serve."
But from another comes this: "The First
Amendment, has no application in spirit, or
fact to a learning situation for inexperienced
kids who have neither the background nor
maturity to make adequate judgments in the
use of a tool of great potential danger to the
institution, its faculty and students."
And so, while at, some institutions the editor
is given a friendly slap across the withers
and sent galloping into the journalistic pasture, at others he is hogtied, the staff is
hobbled, and an electric fence i.s built around
the editorial offices.
The s.aiue kid who missed three answers in
an economics quiz interviews the learned
professor for the college paper with about
the same accuracy of results . . . and another
recruit is added to the "facujty control" faction on the campus.
Nor does this economics professor see any
discrepancy between his tolerance for student,
,  error  in  economics  and  his  intolerance  of
error in student reporting.
The "faculty control" demand is an oversimplification.   Censorship produces bad student morale, resentments, flare-ups, evasions
in proportion to its severity.
The  student  paper becomes  a  weak  and
>   spineless   thing,   bulging   with   the  minutiae
of college comings and goings and doings, but
lacking in the strength and force to speak
effectively for the group it represents.
As a training ground for effective participation in a democratic society, which is what
a college proposes to be, censorship is ian
educational .self-contradiction. Artificial
methods don't produce realistic outcomes, as
old John Dewey used to point out so impressively.
Institutions which extend their undergraduate papers freedom of the pasture stand on
the "student responsibility" principle. As one
faculty adviser to a student daily puts it,
"Censorship i.s unnecessary in student publications if the students are given—and made
to feel—the proper responsibilities.
"This is true even from the administration's
standpoint. Our student's, at least, clon't very
oitcn go off half-cocked, though they do make
mistakes. But who doesn't? And they learn
by these mistakes and don't hurt anyone very
badlv in doing so," Wednesday, February 16, 1949.

4. To foster understanding and cooperation between the faculties.
5. To make USC an effective ex
pression of student opinion.
Seconders' Statements
It is not my intention to present a
platform of rash promises which
could not be fulfilled, but rather to

following basis:
1. to  meet  the  executive members
" of all  clubs  in order  to learn what
are the problems facing each grofip,
both financial and otherwise, and to
do everything within my power to assist the clubs, through their executives, in solving their problems,

special' events which would appeal
to all groups and all tastes.
Eileen Moyls
"The object of the Women's Undergraduate Societies shall be to consider and advance the interests of the
women students through the promotion of extra-curricular activities."
If elected to the position of WUS
president I should endeavour to govern an organization which would fulfil this objective and, in so doing, help
to eliminate the present state of apathy
on this campus.
As a member ol Students Council I
should strive to bc an impartial but
well informed representative of all
women. As a student with two year's
experience on the WUS executive it is
my earnest desire to contribute the
knowledge I have acquired to the
student administration of the entire
I urge every woman student to
consider what this office entails and
to vote thoughtfully today.

of the women's elections for their
individual year and faculty representatives on WUS council.

Doug Wetmore
Because of his ability, diversified
interests, and proven capabilities,
Doug Wetmore is the obvious choice
for president of the Literary and
Scientific Executive. A review of his
recent activities will show that he has
thc   desired   qualifications.
He has given his valuable time
and tireless energies to the Musical
Society with unparalled goodwill.
Last year, he very successfully combined the onerous job of production
manager with the leading role in the
production Robin Hood. Two years
ago he also had a leading role in
thc show, and this year he has undertaken the task of Tour Manager.

Marg Low-Beer
I am proud to second Margaret Low-
Beer's" nomination for the office of
LSE president because I feel that her
term of office as secretary of the LSE
has given her the experience which
is imperative for the position. Margaret's work as an active member of
the Players Club, the Radio Society
and the Parliamentary Forum has
given her a wide understanding of
club problems. She demonstrated her
ability to work with faculty members as the chairman of last year's ISS
faculty campaign. If elected, she will
bring to the office the same energy
which has enabled her to carry out
all her tasks and still maintain her
high   scholastic  standing.
Campus Peace Council
To Remain Independent
"The main issue before the Peace Council is to decide
whether it should become a sub-committee of the U.N. Society,"
stated Tom Walden, chairman of the meeting on Tuesday.
Before the discussion of this issued       —	
The "Is" have it. These mysterious blotters announce
Mussocs production of "Iolanthe", opening Monday night
in the Auditorium for twosstudent performances.
The Gilbert & Sullivan opera tells the story of Strephon,
a fairy sprite who, rejected by his human sweetheart,
avenges himself on the mortal world by becoming a Member
of Parliament. The satire is delicious; the song and dance
and dialogue miss no opportunity for poking fun at the
sedate English Parliament.
Pat Fougarty outlined the background
of the formation of the Toronto Peace
Council from an article in the November 6 issue of the Financial Post.
Mr. Fougarty indicated that Mr. A.
A. McLeod, LPP member of the Ontario Legislature is behind the Toronto branch and that there is sufficient indication that the party line is
being towed.
Ron Smith who supported affiliation
with the UN Society quoted from a
letter written by Mrs. Stevens, secretary of the Vancouver UN which
stilted that the UN welcomed cooperate groups as members. Mr. Smith
also indicated that Mr. Endicott who
did not want the Peace Council branded as communist insisted that the
function of such a council was to
provide information. Mr. Smith felt
that the council could best accomplish its aims within the UN.
Seymour Adelman also advocated
activity as a group within the UN on
the ground that in it we could make
the UN live up to its ideals. Opposition to joining the UN as a sub-Committee or a Peace research committee
was based in the fact that the council could achieve its aims outside the
As George Stewart stated "We shall
only gain a front organization by
joining the UN" The feeling was
also expressed that the UN is merely
a debating club. The council is more
interested in action.
Mr, Gibson a former executive
member of the UN expressed the
fear that the council would be submerged within the UN.
Mr. Garnett proposed the motion
that the Peace Council continue as an
independent organization without
closing its doors to working with the*
UN. This motion was carried.

In that circuit the play this year
is so lopsided that there is a threat
that interest in the game may be
completely wiped out in some of the
With the machine like efficiency
thot characterizes most of their
athletics, the University of Western
Ontario has built up a squad so
slrong that no one can even come
close to them.*
Hoop History
In a recent tilt between McGill
and Western for instance basketball
history was probably made when
the losing team wound up the last
part of the game with an attempt
tc  freeze the ball.
The final score of the contest
was 68-17 for the Mustangs and in
the closing minutes of play the
Redmen became so desperate that
despite the fact that they were on
the short end of the score, they
attempted to freeze the ball in an
effort to keep down the count.
Throughout the .entire contest the
brick wall denfence of the talented
Westerners allowed McGill to sink
only five baskets.
Hordy Men
Although the Mustang team consisted of only seven players they
•tallied an average of almost 10
points apiece.
Team captain Paul Thomas, playing with two broken fingers personally chalked up 13 markers.
The scores in the eastern league
are apparently not always so one
sided, the situation there has readied the critical stage where the
usually enthusiastic students are
staying away in droves.
The moral of the story being thi.s:
Any time you think we have basketball troubles; Look East young man,
look east.
Jim Rowledge is clue to graduate
from civil engineering this year.
He has been a member of the 'Bird
squad for four seasons and is a pre-
Photo B'y Doug Barnett
. . . Lett Defense
vious Big Block winner,
Jim learned his hockey in Erskine,
Alberta and Vernon, B.C., where he
lived before taking up his present
residence at Nanaimo. He is an outstanding athlete, not only in hockey
hut also in basketball and baseball
which he plays during thc summer.
It is unfortunate that he did not
have sufficient time to play college
basketball for he is a natural.
Scholastically Jim is outstanding.
While at this school he has had no
mark under a first class. In a
Christmas exam this year he had a
perfect paper in a final. He will undoubtedly graduate this year with
first class honors and numerous post
graduate offers.
He would have been an ideal
Rhodes Scholar as he combines all
lhe qualities essential for that honor. Lack of time however, kept him
out of student activities.
To the hockey team Jim has been
an essential cog. He started as a
forward but his versatility made him
an ideal defenseman. He is now 23
and stands 5'10" and weighs 175 lbs.
An ideal team man, Jim is a rushing defenseman, a holdover of his
days as a forward. It will indeed
be difficult to replace him on the
squad next season.
"Wag" Wagner, a brilliant stick-
handling left winger, is another of
those exceptional hockey players
that turn up only once in the history
of a team. It is unlikely if tho squad
will ever find replacements for
"Wag", Bob Koch, or Haas Young.
Bill Wagner, at 28, is tlie oldest
member of the squad. During his
hockey career he has amassed a
wealth of experience which he puts
to good use for Varsity. Another
prairies puckster, Wag played top
Junior and Senior hockey before attending UBC. He played with the
Northwest Air Command Championship team in 1945-46, while he was
in the RCAF. Haas Young was his
linemate on that squad.
This is not the first time he has
played hockey on the coast. In 1941-
42 he was a member of the championship Nanaimo team which won
the Coy Cup and the Western Canada title. Among his mates on that
squad were Dave McKay and Jack
McGill, ex NHL stars.
Playing his second year with the
local squad, Wag is a Big Block
winner and ended up fourth in team
scoring this season. He plays the
type of hockey for which Bob Koch

Looking over past records, thc
three new officers will undoubtedly
carry out their obligations with the
utmost efficiency. At the same time
however, all would probably feel
happier in their new jobs if they
