Opposition Blocks
Public Ownership
The CCF Club governed January 28's session of the Mock
. Parliament, but their efforts to bring the steel industry under
public ownership were blocked by the corfibined forces of the
Liberals and Conservatives, who defeated the nationalization
bill by one vote.
(This is the flnt In a series dealing with athletics at UB<5
by Staff Wrjter Chuck Coon-Editor.)
(Ubyssey Staff Writer)
At UBC; tbe students play a greater'part in administering
the university than at perhaps, any other academic institution
in Canada. '.
Tuum est is no idle catch—phrase.
But the student voice is becom-<»    .——
Ing weaker and weaker in one as- lboard  woulA take
pect  of student  life—-athletic  affairs.
'When the so-called Ostrom Plan
for athletics was passed at a general meeting of the Alma Mater Society in November, 1950, the athletic program passed under faculty control. .
The COF bill charged that the
steel Industry, under private
ownership, ignored the needs
and welfare of the Canadian
people who were subsidizing thc
industry, (government spearkers
asserted that the steel industry
was a member of the international Steel Cartel, which, they
said, was a menace to international good-will and peace.
The nationalisation bill provid
ed tyr operation of the industry
by a Crown company to oq called
"The Steel Corporation of Canada," which would be run by a
Board of Governors consisting of
representatives of government,
labor, management, and technical
The Opposition maintained that
the vital steel Industry should
remain in "the hands of experienced businessmen, and not
handed over to politicians.
I am naturally very much interested in the appointment of the Right Honourable Vincent Massey as Governor-
General of Canada, for I have known him for m#ny years
and for the past three years I have been intimately associated with him as a member of the Royal Commission oa National Development in the Arts, Letters and Sciences.
I consider that he is the most suitable person in Canada
for this position because of his training and experience and
because of the independent position which he has occupied
for such a long time in Canadian affairs.
It is particularly fortunate that for our first Canadian
Governor-General we have been able to find someone who
because of his experience will be able to fill the post with
dignity and distinction.
The present governing body of
UBC athletics, the Men's Athletic Directorate, is composed of
two students, one alumni representative, and two faculty members. These men, the president
and, secretary of the MAD, the
alumni representative, the Athletic Director, and the head of the
School of Physical Education,
make the majority policy decisions in UBC athletics.
In his report to Student Council
on January 14, Bill Sparling, MAD
president, hinted that his authority over-laps that of the new athletic director, Bob Robinett. Mr.
Robinett 1b responsible to the head
of the School of Physical Education,
But Mr. Rolnett has the ed,ge on
the MAD president—he holds tho
purse strings One of the Athletic
.Director's Jobs ls to dele out money
from the MAD budget to the various athletic clubs as they request
it. '     •
Student control of athletics helps
train able administrators and glv*
es control of student money to
student government. Faculty control of the athletic program guarantees continuity and quality of
AiMiS president, Vaughan Lyon
has objected to the Ostrom Plan
because of loss of the student autonomy it entails. Brock Ostrom.
father of the plan, feels this loss
is of little consequence as the
student body is responsible in the
end to the Board of Governors df
the university. '
Bill Sparling believes the athletic program Is becoming too big
to be bandied by students alone.
Nevertheless, the fact remains
that the athletic program is financed by AMiS fees'. Accord Ing* to
the sliding-scale amendment to the
Ostrom Plan this year $3.25 from
each student fee of $16 is turned
over to the athletic department.
The fl-man Athletic Board, scheduled to be set up soon, will likely
contain four student members. Th
over many of
the duties of the MAD.
Either the administration will
have to contribute a majority ot
the athletic budget, or tt will have
to Increase student representation
on the athletic board.
That much Is clear. If, however,
the student body wishes te change
the set-up of the athletic government, it will have a chance to express its views when the Ostrom
Plan comes upafor review at the
general meeting of the AMS in
And we do not believe thata a
university tills size can possibly
adopt a large-scale athletic pro-
grm on the $18,000 now being provided under the new athletic plan.
'Students who' present their passes at the Varsity Theatre will get
a reduced rate Mr. it...-Hardy,
theatre manager announced today.
"We ."eel that the Vurslty Theatre ls largely a university theatre
and should give privileges to the
students,"  said  Mr.  Hardy.
The management arranged to
give students a reduced rate or
35 cents on presentation of their
AMS cards.
Hardy told reporter that he has
fought for this move foi* several
years and ls sorry it was not Instituted before.

Just Like Cards
«|K) fraternity boy Bill Neen, currently chairman of the
I USC, life is "juat like cards—if you can't pay, don't play."
Drawing a parallel to Mr. Neen's example, we would like
to point out that neither he nor we would be at this university
if the taxpayers of British .Columbia thought along the lame
Quite probably this university would be restricted to
those students who play just because they can afford to pay.
r There are quite a number of students on the campus who
play at studying, and will continue to play at everything else,
at long as somebody pays for their little games.
If the Greek Letter Societies find it advisable to dole
their doors to those who cannot afford "to play", they may also
Mid it adyantageous to exclude those, whose sole reason for
attending university seems to be a wiU to "play." ,
To conclude our kibitzing, we wish them all a happy play-
titte and* hope the awakening that they may be in for one day
will twrt be too sudden or too harsh.
This Is Justice?
;EWS Item: John Joseph Dillane, 5»-year-old Vancouver
man, must serve 18 months in jail fbr the "one-punch"
manslaughter death of Polish-born Stanley Deren last July.
Eighteen months was the decision of the B.C. Court of Appeal
Foraiavlyv Ms, Justice Manson had imposed' a sentence of one
day .ini $2Stf fine. ,
The facts of the case were: DiJl&ne, under the infkteflce
of liquor, committeed a deliberate and unprovoked attack
upon the victim. He assaulted the dead man at the same
time uttering the words, "Why don't you speak English?"
Taking a life is still a criminal offence (unless it is on a
wholesaleievel) aijd doctors hav* been prosecuted for euthen-
asia. This man had no such humane ideals. His victim was
speaking Polish; a language he understood before he came
to Canada. Should he fear the consequences of shaking in
his native tongue on foreign avenues? •
Should a Canadian be the subject of such a case in another land, the noise would be loud and lasting. Justice, we
would cry: we would demand adequate punishment.
,But a Vancouver paper has unearthed the 'pertinent'
fact that the victim had been active in the Communist party
he»e in*Canada. And we say, "So What?" He was a human
being*, and his life was taken. Eighteen months is not adequate punishment for taking a life whether accidental ot
Stanley Deren no longer exists; but John Joseph Dillan?
has a good 30 years less 18 morifhs left. Hfc is gwi% oi manslaughter but still alive Deren was innocent, but he is dead.
Is that our justice?
|   War Arret Peace
YEAR of atom or hydrogen bombs, armament races, simultaneous disarmament and other means suggested by
commensense and scientific investigation seriously help to
effect the will for peace.
Put ultimately the success of these means depends on the
individual wb<o is trying to "give' and be less selfish; who can
think for himself; who is humble, highly-moraled, willing
to forgive those who may have debilerately really crushed
him or his nation; who has that stronger courage which is
more willing to endure than to fight even when the freedom,
life, good name, property and money of himself, his family or
his nation are in danger; who is trying to be like Jesus Christ.
- Men are not that way so we will have to use our best
scientific methods to find ways, even questionable, which will
keep us with all our pride, lust and greed from atomizing one
The most effective long-range answer to "What can insignificant T do for peace" is "Be a better man."
One practical method to further peace would be the setting-up of a body of about 100 high-idealed, prudent men,
chosen according to population from all nations. They would
lose their nationality and be responsible to no government;
their job would be to examine impartially the world situation
and tell all people where justice seemed to lie and whether
a particular war was worth fighting.
The "Ascent of F6" seemed also to suggest that the basic*
world problem was one of knowledge and virture; the analysis it gave of human nature, in its modern form, its freedom,,
motives and awful weakness was truly great. The note of
despair in the drama arose from the fact, I think, that grace
was left out, which is the only answer to man's weakness.
Knowledge and virtue are not enough Christ and His grace
are also needed. —WILLIAM PINSON. -

This is the year that the University of Alberta's powerful
hockey team will visit Vancouver in defence of the' Hamber
Trophy, emblematic of Western Intercollegiate supremacy in ice
Four Varsity Boys Play Against
Old Team Matas On Victoria Tida
; When the Thunderbirds battle with Victoria's Crimson
Tide'for tht right to head the inter-city McKechnie Cup standings in -die capital city on Saturday afternoon, four of the 'Birds
will be facing former teamates.
iCsptain Gerry Mala, Frank Oower, Charlie Brunvwell end John
Newton, ex4*ide members, will be closely marked, but the Victoria
squad will be seeking above all to ensnarj Newton, starry left winger
and one of the most prolific, scorers for the Birds.
John started his rugger playing fairly late not until his last year
of high school did he take up the Twickenham sport. That year, under
Che aible coaching of Joe Andrews, John soon won a place on Victoria
High's powerful rep. team.
'Captivated by the game, John turned out for the Wanderers, an
organiation which enters teams in each of the three Victorian, rugger
leagues. Starting with the thirds, John graduated first to the seconds,
and finished the season an established member of the first division team.
Campbell Porlbes, one of the most accomplished coaches in Victoria,
handled the reins of the Wanderers, and it was from Forbes and Andrews that John not only learned the fundamentals of the game, but
gained lnvaluaible playing experience.
; The following year, John played for the Vic College Vikings along
with such stars as trackman Bob Hutchinson, Johnny Foote, Oerry Main
abd Charlie Brumwejl. The Vikings carried all before them that year,
as they swept though the regular season with an 'undefeated record.
In tiie B.C. championships they lost to Vancouver's top club, the Vindex.
In the opening practices for the Thunderbirds last year, John caugut
the °ye of Coach Allbert Laithwaite who had spent the summer dreaming of such a winger as this long-legged Victoria youth. John played ln
the first game, and has since then 'been on the starting line up of thr*
Birds. At the end of last season, he received his big Block, and. judging
by the number of tries tie has scored this year, seems assured of gaining
that coveted award a second time. ' '
At high sohool, especially ln his last yeaj, John played for the Vic.
High Totems rep. basketball team, and was one of the leading tracksters
16 the cpital city.
! Last summer, mainly with the Idea of keeping in a shape for the
next rugger season, John began to play lacrosse. He Joined the Foul Bay
Jokers Senior B team, which weut through the season with an intact
record, but by the end of the boxla season John had become a member
c*f the Victoria Shamrocks.

Rowing Crew Training
Begins This Saturday
The UBC rowing crew will commence serious training this
week end in Coal Harbour under the able coaching of Frank
Reid popular varsity coach for the past three seasons.
Four  months  of  heavy  training
is In store for. the crew as Coach
Reid alms to have a top notch
squad representing UHC in the
(Canadian Olympic Trials. This
meet to be held at St. Catherine;-
Ont. on June 12 is the present goal
of the varsity rowers.
In order that new men can learn
the funndamentals of rowing preliminary training will be held in
barges before the greenhorns attempt to manage the fragile, unstable racing shells;
1'BC's   new   eljsrht   man    racing
shell vvill be delivered from Kelow
na sometime this week. The addition of one more shal will enable
the chew, to gain valuable racs
experience while training. Prevl-
ouslythe UBC Oarmen had to make
out with the one shell.
This handsome trophy, donated
by ex-Chancellor , Hamber, whose
sportsmanship and Interest In clean
sport Is a by-word among his follow citizens was won last year by
the Alberta" University.
It may be interesting at this incu-
ture to point out that ice hockey
ls the, only major, or any other
sport, that serves to unite the University  of British Columbia with
any of its sister universities of tho
Western Provinces, though the medium of friendly sporting rivalry.
Would it |tot be a grand gesture,
on the part of our student body to
give our hockey team a moral boost
by attending the U. of B.C. versus
U. of Alta. series ia such numbers
that tbe kerrisdale Arena would
have to lm*tv- out the SRO sign? A
packed house at, these games will
not only give your team moral support, but will/also give the MAD
much needed .financial support. But
above all else, a mass attendance
would indicate a courtesy welcome
to a l'*t:>adlan e^ster university.
After coaching the USD hookey
squad fof five years, l found it
necessary for health and business
reasons to.resign. However, I feel
honored that the hockey squad has
appointed me as their honorary
coach since my retirement. In this
capacity I feel tt my privilege and
prerogative to point out to the- student body that they have every
reason to be proud of this year's
edition of the UBC hockey team
and their capable coach Wag Wagner and energetic manager Brian
This year's squad Is one of thy
best balanced hockey teams ever
to represent the university. While
previous teams have had some outstanding stars and two powerful
forward lines, tt waa rare that we
could muster a third line so essential to modern day hookey.
The first string Une of Haaa
YojUhg at right wing with Steve
Oryschuk at center flanked on left
wing by Al Hood, has plenty of
scoring punch and may be compar
ed with any itae In senior, hockey
Haaw Young,- the captain of tho
club, was a member qf the famous
Edmonton Mercury hockey team
that annexed the World's Hockey
Championship ln Sweden two years
ago. Steve Grvschuk has the distinction of being on the negotiation
list of the New York Rangers.
The second line with Rudy Richer ln center high-flying Kenny
Hole on left wing, and colorful and
colorful and fast skating Gunner
Bailey on right wing have plenty
of speed aud power, but have yet
to hit their peak. This boy Rudy
Richer has the makings of a major
The third Hn$ of .Jim Todd ln
center, MacCarpenter on left wing,
and Rodger Stanton on right win-T
oan always be counted on to giv*
the opposition plenty of trouble.
Bob Peebles has been utilized as a
reserve, but ls capable of stepping
Into the breech on either the forward line or the defence whenever
B.C.'s titalists last year, round out
our defence quartette.
The goalkeeper's duties are shar
ed by Bill Olson, an up and conning
youngster who also guards tbe nets
for the Kerrisdale Junior hockey
team, and Don Anderson, a Calgar-
|an, whose father Ernie Anderson
was at one time a member of the
famous Selkirk hockey team from
Manitoba, and later the equally
famour Calgary Tigers of the Pacific Coast Hockey League when
that league was of major, league

Jim McMahon, a husky 180 pounder who can use his weight and is
high scoring defenceman, team.d
up with Sandy Sanderson who can
hit hard, Is a powerful skater and
has plenty of "oomph" behind his
s*hots on goal, form a mighty fine

The Stanford squad has been
