UBC Symphony In Free Conceit
The results of hours of practice and
rehearsal will be unveiled when the
.University Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Colin Slim presents a free concert of symphonic
music on Friday, tyarch 10 at 3:30
p.m. ln the Auditorium, The fifty
students who form this organization
haVe been working since September
on' many of the numbers to be presented for this, their third concert of
the seaaon.
Appearing with trie orchestra as
soloist ln the Tschaikowsky Piano
Concerto will be Ubyssey critic, John
Brooklngtom. This concerto, one of the
most difficult in the repertoire, is
slso one of ithe most popular, having
provided the basis for the "immortal"
song' "Tonight We Love." It was in
this work that Rubinstein and Horo
witz both made their North American
debuts Mor Morowiltz playing at such
a breakneck speed that Sir Thomas
Beecham and the New York Philharmonic were left training behind.
Another of the featured works will
be the Sonata Piano Forte by Glrov-
anni Gabrieli, for eight brass instruments,  published in  1597.
Rarely performed, this noble Ren-
naissance work is the first work written for a definite group of instruments..
The G minor Fugue and the two
Choral Preludes by Bach will be
played in honor of the Bicentennial
of the great master's death in 1750.
The two preludes are based on Lutheran hymns but have been transformed by Bach nto mighty architectural
structures   which  however   still   re
tain their original atmosphere of religious devotion.
The other main work on the program will be the Haydn Symphony
number eighty-eight in G major. This
joyous work is in the customary four
movements marked Allegro, Adagio,
Minuet, and Allegro con spirD'.o and
reflects the bouncing joviality of "Pa •
pa" Haydn.
This ambitious program will be featured under the direction of conductor-pianist Colin Slim who at the age
of 20 can already look back on a distinguished list of achievements not
the least of which is his brilliant performance in Monday's duo-piano recital. It was largely due to Mr.' Slim's
brilliant direction during laat year
that the Symphony Orchestra was
elevated to the status of a temporary
major club by the LSE.

Mechanical Engineer's conference to be held here in May
will not receive any grant from Student Council.
The UBC branch of the American &
Society of Mechanical Engineers had
asked for eight hundred dollars from
Council to help subsidize the three
thousand dollars needed to £ut on
the conference which will be held
here May 3, 4, and 5.
'Council would like to assist thc
ASME,'' stated incumbent CO-ordin-
ator of Activities Jim Midwinter,
"but we don't have the money."
"1 am against granting supplementary budgets," declared Treasurer
Wall' Ewing.
The conference, which expects three
hundred delegates from five Northwestern universities, had planned to
make up the remaining $2200 from
registration and ASME grants.
"Host universities usually provide
accommodation for visiting delegates.
The administration has cut down the
cost of housing at Fort Camp from
$1.50 .a' day to one dolalr but registration would still be $10,' explained
ASME president George Plant.
'Local delegates will also have to
pay the full registration fee. Since
many of them^are married men, ihey
would appreciate the saving."
Program of the conference includes
technical conferences, a field trip to
Woodfibre and two banquets.

Austnan Students
Captivate Campus
To the lilting, nostalgic strains of "Tales front the Vienna
Woods," thirty Austrian students yesterday closed one of the
most memorable concerts ever heard on our campus.
The lively, noon-hour show, whiles-
lacking the slick finish of a' touring
professional road show, had a spontaneous zest that struck a responsive
chord in every si'udent in the crowded Auditorium, and in ten minutes
the small group of Austriuns captured a thousand Canadians without
firing a shot.
So unique was thc program, so
different from anything seen here before, that it cannot be judged on a
comparative basis in any way. The
bright, good-humoured slapdances,
the impeccable work of the choir,
whose fine interpretation of traditional songs was in itself extraordinary, the Tyrolean yodelling, and
the intricate folk-dances, all conspired to produce a strangely appealing  show.
Amongst the indivfdual , artists,
Peter Feiersinger, harpist, and charming Vroni Stoeckl, soprano, were outstanding. Due to the fact that yesterday's concert was especially constructed for a one-hour performance,
few individuals were featured and ensemble work predominated. However,
students will be enabled to see the
entire two and one-half hour performance today, Thursday, at 3:30
p.m, in the Auditorium. Admission
will be fifty cents.
The Austrian Students' Goodwill
Group is sponsored by the LSE and
the Fine Arts Committee. It was introduced yesterday by its travelling
advisor, Dr. Oskar F. Bock, who explained the origin of the group and
its purpose — to foster a better
understanding between Austria and
other countries that I'he students visit.

meeting. v       .   j     ,f 4 ,, ||
Amendments may only be made at
a general meeting of the society, and
if the new by-law is passed this
month may only be changed after a
petition of at least 100 members of
the AMS, or after unanimous vote of
Student Council.
Also proposed will be an amendment advocating that AMS Public

Student political clubs may be organized under LSE or bear names
and policies of political parties, and
will be subjected to rules of the
AMS and LSE.
Other than designated political
clubs, no organizations in the society
shall be allowed to become an instrument of partisan politics.
Objects of thc AMS are to promote,
direct, and control all student activities within UBC. They hope to
advance the cause of higher learning
in B.C., and promote unity and good
will amongst students of this university.
Constitutional amendments for this
spring include a by-law which grants
benefit payments to members of the
society who suffer personal injury.

play, was banned from the stage of
the Ffeirt Mouse Theatre in thc recent Drama Weekend on the basis of

play's director, John Howe charged
The charge against the play was ono
of immorality. Of the threo characters in the one-ac'icr, one i.s a lesbian
and one a  nymphomaniac.
'"No Exit' is a morality play and as
such must mention seme of life's
seamier side." Howe  added.
"None of the members of the University of Toronto Drama committee
had read the play." Howe continued,
"but after hearint* a few lines read
to them by Hart House Theatre Director, Robert Gill, the UTDC decided
the play wa.s not suitable for presnt-
atiiwi at Hart House."
"This whole affair is just another
indication of the way students are
allowing themselves to be led and

of the Drama Committee. "We would

What's Going On    by bob lussel
"' Student Council passed a motion Monday
Which has virtually committed them to leav-
ifUf a surplus of $5000 when the fiscal year
eridsi. They have adopted as a policy the
leaving of such a sum of money to be used
to carry them over the summer months and
to insure a sound financial position during the
non-rtvenue period.
Walt Ewing has stated that the position
of the Society is impossible to predict — so
impossible ihat even the auditors won't do it.
Tht Ubyssey concurs with him in this opinion.
•llfc^tiriter editorial the Cbyssey pointed out that leaving a surplus was just as

with a surplus that could Have been utilized

ll a little like touching a spark to a keg of
If the Student Council is planning to use
the $5000 surplus to meet contingencies which
are a result of this fiscal year then the policy
is a sound one. If the money is to be used to
finance preparations for next year's activities,
then the policy, in the opinion of the Ubyssey,
is not a sound one.
It is cheaper, if we are seeking to maximize student activity, to operate on bank
credit during the non-revenue period than
to pile up a surplus to fill the gap.
Few, if any, business concerns of a large
nature operate on a cash basis. The justification for a commercial bank lies in the fact
it has not been found feasible to operate on
a cash basis. Student Council seems to be
confusing bank credit with some sort of
Two things must be born in mind. First,
there is a large body of students who will
not be here next year. Second, with administration costs remaining static in the. face of
dropping enrollment, we need every penny
to underwrite immediate student activities.;
Amassing a surplus merely cuts into activity
to provide a cushion which an organization
wth a readily predictable income does not
really need.
The Ubyssey submits that the general
student interest would be best served by
spending the Society's $5,000—or whatever
the surplus amounts to—to promote present1
student activity. —J.B.

Turn on your radio almost any old night,
or day, and between commercials, the following is the kind of thing you hear too often.
"Little Klopstockia was today the centre
of world attention when, in a landslide election, the Communist-dominated Agrarian
Party was defeated by the Democratic Reform Party, led by Dr. Vasalv Egflip. Late
reports indicate that street-fighting is in progress, and the ousted Reds have seized and
are holding th glu-factory, at Bognya, upon
Which the country's economy depends."
"Klopstockian diplomat Nov Shmozka-
pop this afternoon told the U.N. General
Assembly that order had been restored in
his country. He appealed for U.S. financial
aid to assist the new government to pay his
wages." ■:*'*■
"Unimpeachable Paris sources have intimated that Klopstockia, tiny central European country, is trying to re-negotiate the
terms of its French loan, as its credits in
France have been exhausted. The Klopstockian minister of Finance proposes to
offer the interest in his country's debt as
security for a new loan. The current premier
of France, according to latest information, is
threatening to resign."
"Pravda, official organ of the Cominform,
yesterday accused Klopstockia of slandering
the Soviet Union. Said Pravda "Klopstockia
has become a mouthpiece for the Wall Street
imperialists, whose war-mongering tactics cart
only lead to international gangsterism. 'The
blood-hungry neo-fascists in Klopstockia's
government, craving war at all costs, can
push the democratic populace only so far.'"
"Reason for today's Pravda attack on
Klopstockia was seen by independent Observers to lie in rumour that Congress is
seriously considering Marshall aid to the
little country, whose liberal government is
endangered by the surrounding Communist
bloc. Informed Washington sources say that
Congress will appropriate $30,000,000 for
Kolpstockia, which will only be granted if
that government agrees to buy obsolete US.
arms and war-equipment with the sum."
"Klopstockia looms even larger in today's news. Oil has been located in the
country, and the concessions have been seized
by American oil interests. Three warships
have been sent to Greece to demonstrate
to Europe that America stands ready to protect its rights."
"The United Nations General Assembly
was the scene of heated controversy today,
with Soviet and American delegates hurling
epithets at each other over the situation in
Klopstockia. The representative from that
little country was told by both Americans
and Russians alternately to "Sit down!" "Shut
up!" and "Mind your own business!" Half
way through the meeting, the Russian delegate stalked out, and the American delegate
muttered, "If ydu want war, we'll give it
to you."

situation, consult your daily newspaper or

Letters To The Editor
HERO? ? ?
Editor, The! Ubyssey: - ' |
^Perhaps these few lines from one
who has to date been no bosom pal
of the present treasurer, but who has
same application of what Walt ls trying to do, would be In order.
It Is not an easy job to decide to
what extent a surplus will exist three
months before ths fiscal year ends.
The writer wonders whether those
who talk of $5000 in ths black have on

too certain-that The Ubyssey Itrelf will
not exceed Its budget by $1090. Other

is a bit early to start on a spending
The society's auditors have been
cr.'-suited and report that they are
unable to predict what the AMS financial situation will be at the end of
the ycar. They, however, consider it
a sound idea if a surplus did exist
at the end of tho year.
Se>me ask—"Is it not just as unsound
to produce a surplus as it i.s to produce a deficit?" In the first place,
there is a stigma attached to any person who puts an organization "in
thc hole," and the Alma Mater Society
in the past has not been all-too-kind
to deficit - producing treasurers. In
the second place, it is dangerous for
an organization, as it is for an individual, to spmd more than is earned.

In the third place, lt is sound financing for an organization to achieve a
surplus and to have a "cushion" to
help absorb the shock of any large
unforseen expenses.
It has been the practice at one time
for the Alma Mater Society to arrive
at a surplus each year and to invest
this amount in bonds. When the large
deficit was uncovered after the 1947-
48 year, the accumulated bonds (which
totalled 115,000 in value) were cashed
In and helped lift the weight of the
debt. As « result, at the present time
the Society is running on a hand-to-
mouth basis, while present students
possibility (only a possibility, mind
you) of unspent money being left in
may not feel very happy about
this year's coffers after their assenting to 'an austerity budget during the
past year. I believe that the Society
might as well do a proper job of putting its finances right. This would
hot mean that this year would be financing next year; we should also attempt to arrive at a surplus next year
if at all possible in order to put the
Alma Mater's finances once more in a
healthy position.
The writer is not opposed to the
cause of the Austrian students, and
would gladly consider himself one of
those SO students who would each
volunteer $1 towards their entertainment. However, let us not let our
hearts confuse our heads when it
comes to the general financial principles involved tin spending our Society's money.
Sincerely yours,
Treasurer-elect, AMS.

Even if they were outclassed by a
group of Austrian students who appeared for three numbers during their
song fest, UBCs Greek Letter Societies acquitted themselves pretty
well during the four-hour affair in
Brock Hall Tuesday night.
Alpha Phi, who won the sorority
singing, were certainly the most versatile group. I should vote Miss Betty
Held, who conducted them, certainly
the most enthusiastic conductor of the
evening. Her group was well trained
and won the cup for their originality.
Alpha Oamma Delta I would vote
the most neglected group of the evening. Possibly at a disadvantage because they sang first on the programme, they nevertheless sang harmoul-
ously and competently. They certainly deserved better than fourth place.
The other winners, Kappa Kappa
Oamma and Gamma Phi Beta both
had a good deal of stage presense.
In the fraternity singing, which on
the whole was batter than that of thc
sororities, it was very hard to choose
between several df tiie groups.
Phi Oamma Delta, Who won, didn't
have-much of an edge over Beta Theta
Pi. Both groups were highly polished
and there were no dangling S's or
T's at the end of lines which made
some of the other groups sound like
they were stuttering.
Lambda Chi were very competent,
and I do think they hdd the edge over
Delta Upsilon, who came third. Other
competent groups were Phi Delta
Theta and Sigma Chi.
Psi Upsilon ranged into popular
music when they sang-Some Enchant-
, ed Evening, but they sang it too fast
and chopped off .their final note in
each line making the song jerky
and abrupt. The Sigma Chi's sang their
(theme song too softly and undoubtedly lost points on that score.'
Sigma Phi Delta got my volte as the
leaoet harmonious group of the evening. Their first number was flat and
out of tune and their second was little

The visaing Austrian students, who

A Profession
Students in Pharmacy are dismayed by the attitude of a
large part of tiie public towards their chosen profession. It is
an attitude of mild derision, evidently prompted by an ignorance
of the true nature of Pharmacy. We, as prospective pharmacists,
are desirous of eliminating this attitude.
The practise of Pharmacy has been in the past, one requiring a high degree of responsibility, skill and integrity.
With recent spectacular advances in the fight against disease,
the necessity for an even higher degree of these qualities has
Symbolic of this increased necessity is the Faculty of
Pharmacy at UBC, which was established to provide the more
extensive training required to meet the advances in Medicine.
An intensive study in courses such as Organic and Inorganic
Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Bacteriology and various
Pharmacy courses must be undertaken in the three years at
UBC. On graduation, the degree of Bachelor of Science in
Pharmacy is conferred on the successful candidate and he receives his license to practise in B.C.
Graduation does not mean the end of his learning as he
must constantly study to keep up with new developments. Once
In practise he must be a diplomat, an advisor, a businessman, a
professional man and above all, a man of integrity and responsibility. The lives of dozens of people are in his hands dally.
A very small error is all that is required to finish his career.
When a full comprehension of the hideous aspects of drug addiction is obtained, the .qualities necessary for the privilege of
handling and distributing these drugs is evident.
Pharmacy is not confined to Ithe retail drug-store. Hospital
Pharmacy is an extremely important part, Of equal importance
is research and teaching. Pharmaceutical research workers
have played a large part in the discovery and development of
the many new and invaluable therapeutic agents that have
appeared in recent years.
Doctofs, veterinarians and dentists are gradually finding
it necessary to consult Pharmacists. The vast numbers of new
drugs and preparations coming into use make it almost impossible for doctors to fully acquaint themselves with this
aspect arid at the same time keep up with the advances being
made in their own profession.
The continuation of advances in medicine could conceivably
create a new class of medical men: Therapeuticians they could
be called. Pharmacy is preparing for this and related eventualities by maintaining a standard of ethics and training which
even the most biased will admit ranks with the best.
Pharmacy is indeed a profession.

that the best interests of .'his young
Society would be better served if
we concentrated on seVing it upon
a firm foundation to better work for
th   students in future years.
Today, I feel that we have reached
our modest objective. Never before
has the activity and spirit of the
Pharmacy students been more pronounced.
Conditions for an even more active
FH U S will be jprao'ioLvlIy ideal in
the next university year. By then,
the Faculty will bo located in thf
new Pharmacy - Biological Soicnces
'Building with its tremendously increased facilities. In addition, many
members of ithe Society who have
•gained valuable experience in its administration this year will be able;
to apply it next year. To complete
the picture, the Pharmacy Alumni
Association, now just Ming formed,
will aid in many ways.
Next session we hope that tihe?
Pharmacy US will become better
known to the students of other faculties.
Plans are row in the making to
accomplish that end. We intend to
participate >'o a much greater extent
in campus activities and to work
closer with the executives of the
other undergraduate societies. Wc
hope "that you have seen enough
of us to know that our faculty has
much to offer.
That we are so enthusiastic about
our future plans is, in no small way
due to the remarkable cooperation
we have received from our fellow
Fharmacy Students in the past. To
them, and to so many other individuals and groups on the campus who
have aided us, may I say a very sincere 'thank  you.'

had been accomplished to date, and
urged greater support from the students.

p       Foundation of Future Events Wtil
In the Process of Being Completed
This column has beeh requested, to pass on to yotf a full and
detailed account of what the girls are doing in Pharmacy.
Of the students registered in Phar-«>
macy this year 15 percent are, girls,
with an approximately equal number
registered in each year. Although we
are handicapped by a' small enrollment, we manage to hold our own,
and are fully represented in the
Pharmacy Undergraduate Society,
where girls hold the positions of
secretary-treasurer, social convenor
and USC representative.
At the beginning of the term, a
vigorous campaign was launched to
give the new class a cordial welcome.
Thp welcoming committee consisted of
three girls, Doreen O'Grady, Leona
Milne, and Nannette Durham, and
these in turn helped to make the
Pharmacy Miker of September 28, a
huge success. Joan McEachran is to
he congratulated also, for the planning she did to make the Dance a
success. Second year students no
longer had tha't: lost feeling experienced at the beginning of the term
by students of previous years.
Worthy mention must also be made
cf the girls who helped make t!he
Pharmacy Graduation Banquet and
Dance a success. This event was
held Ma'rch 2, at Panorama Roof of
the Hotel Vancouver, with Trudy
KoS in charge of dance arrangements.
Scholarships, offered by the Faculty
cf Pharmacy, are also on our program. Miss Ina Treene of Second
Year, was the proud winner of the
Entrance Scholarship presented by
the Canadian Foundation for the advancement of Pharmacy. This scholarship was offered primarily on merit
and was the first offered to a girl
in the Pharmacy course since ithe beginning of the course at UBC. It
shows that girls are right in there
Smith were present.
The girls are maintaining a satisfactory scholastic record, and they
realize that the Pharmacy curriculum
must be pursued with a serious purpose and steady effort, or else—as a
result of three years' of hard down
to earth studying, nine cf the girls
are being graduated in the spring.
T.iey are looking forward to a career
in retail pharmacy and some may
continue their studies. They fully
realize that their education has not
been completed when they are graduated, but continues throughout the
years. They must keep up with the
advancements of science and give
information to doctors who have not
time to collect data on drugs for
themselves. Along with other pharmacists they render an Indispensable
public service—that of protecting the
public  health.
The future of girls in Pharmacy
is hard to predict, but if those graduating now, and in future yean, poi-
sess sufficient pride and satisfaction
in the profession, as have the men.
in the past, ihe openings for girls
will be greater than at. present.
Openings now exist in laboratories,
hospitals and retail pharmacy, teaching and government positions.
Peggy McAllister of fourth year
was host to all the other girls in the
faculty recently, when a tea wis
held at her home. Its purpose was to
make all the girls acquainted.

Rscord* Official
Splashmen to Be
Recognized by
Swim Association
Record holders on UBC's
swimming* team are finally going to get recognition.
New ruling by the Canadian Intercollegiate Swimming Records Association will allow records made in
non-conference meets or meets with
non-collegiate teams to become official Canadian records.
Under this setup, coach' Doug
Whittle cf the UBC swim team will
be submitting the names of George
and Jack Creedon, who is now swimming for University of Washington,
for their record-breaking times of
last year.
Knight made a new mark in the
50 yard free style event as well as
sharing the 100 yard free style with
Creedon. ' * " "
Creedon also set speedy times in the
220 and 440 yard events and is bound
tto   get   recognition.
Whittle has just written to the
Association to get the times fixed
up, putting UBC officially up on
the top of the swim ladder where
it  should belong.
return match with the Stanford Ind-
Earlier In the season when the
Palo Ali'o fifteen were up at UBC
to play the 'Birds, the UBC ruggermen placed two convincing wins on
the line, 11-8 and 17-9.
Boyd Benson, the boy who played
such a good game up here, ran 85
yards through a broken field for a
try. This clinched things for the
Palo Alta team.
A 25-yard drop-kicked field goal by
Stanford's John Banks gave the Indians a 3-0 lead. Benson's run came
late In the first half after Banks'
Conversion »by Banks matie the score
8-0 for the home team as the half
whistle blew.
UBC's most valuable ruggerman,
outside three Russ Latham, converted a 35-yard penalty kick early
in the second hall, scoring UBC's
only points.
Bill Salnas, Bird fullback, kept the
Stanford squad from running the
score any higher, by doing some
brilliant back field kicking.
The World Cup, emblematic of
UBC-Californla rugger supremacy
was won last year by the Berkeley
ruggermen. The Golden Bears, in last
year'* World Cup play placed two decisive wins of 11-5 and 11-5 over
UBC. The 'Birds won one game 11-3
and tied the other.
UBC's Thunderbirds meet the Golden Bears in Berkeley Thursday and
Saturday. The Californians will visit
UBC Stadium March 23 end 25.
U of W Volleymen
Beat All-Stars
Returning U of W Volleyball team placed an easy win
over the UBC All-Stars Friday
noon in the gym.
U of W Volleyball team was up to
play the UBC All-Star team in January. At that time, the campus squad
beat Washington to take a three out
of five win.
The Huskie aggregation did not take
things so easy this time.
Outplaying and outsmarting the
UBC team Washington placed their
first three victories on the scoreboard
with 15-11, lr>-10 and 15-4 wins.
When UBC played Washington at
the beginning of the year, the story
wras a little different.
Washington took the first two games
15-6, 15-6, but bowed to the bird
comeback by dropping the next pair
15-2, 15-11 to the All-Stars.
In the final game of the series, UBC
played a smart game to take the last
match 15-10.
Reason for the All-Stars' loss may
be explained in the fact that they
have not played volleyball since the
last time they met with U of W.
The Washington team, being in an
unofficial Coast Volleyball Conference, has the opportunity to keep
in good condition.
Next year UBC may be able to play
in this league along with Bellingham
YMCA and maybe Washington State.
Next year, U of W is planning to
have an Invitational Volleyball Conference to which UBC will probably
be invited.
MOANS AND GROANS of campus musclemen will be heard
this Friday night in the gym when Intramural Boxing and
Wrestling Finals will be held. Competition begins at 7:30 p.m.
