Life in a Student Co-op or
"0 George, You've Got My
Underwear Again."
One of the most rewarding experiences In attending university
in living In a student co.op house.
The abode at 4082 West Eighth Is
no exception. The official title is
the University Students Co-op \s-
soclatlan ($42.50 per month. Al.
100B). Of course there are othei
names upplled to it — the poor
man's Taj Mahal the Engineer's
Refugee Camp,  etc.
One thing Is for sure, life at
the Co-op ls never dull. Take Sunday for instance. On Sunday the
hotise-mother has her day off. *fhis

Who reside at the Co.op has to

monstrosities served up by tho amateur chiefs would drive the ordinary eater to Slippery Joe's Greasy
Spoon Cabaret but the boys resign themselves to their fate with
the attitude of "You think THIS is
bad. wait till my turn comes."
But you must give credit 16 the

faculties. The Engineers prepare

The beer strike doesn't worry
the boys at the Co-op. Showing
the wisdom of Solomon one of the

up his own little malt factory In
the basement. The enterprising

through college by selling his goot
to the boys. Most of the fellows
mysteriously go blind after several
bottles of the brew but they c^re
taken care of. The brewer, never a

In the AMS referendum on constitutional revision, students came
oi* in favor of status quo over
three alternative plans by#a vote
of 413 to 321.
Much stronger approval was glv.
en to the bowling alleys with 704
In favor of them and only 257
Student Interest in the tv/%questions seemed low with a total vote
of only 074 or less than 20 per
cent of  the student body.
BUI Neen, chairman of the dec-
lion committee, said the small turn
out at the polls might be due to
lack of publicity, but „was more
likely the result of general student apathy.
The referendum settles once and
for all a question which has been
the butt of countless discussions
and Ubyssey articles, and has
twice been deferred at AMS general   meetings.
Of the three other plans put before the students, Plans I and II
would have made the greatest
change. Plan I proposed a 15 man
council, eliminating , the junior
and sophomore members, substituting for them three members-at-
large. Plan II would have expanded
the councU to 22, also eliminating
the junior and soph members aud
putting In their place 11 presidents
of the Undergraduate jocietieei.
Plan III, an elaboration of the
status quo, would have done away
with junior and sophomore mem
tiers and substituted in their olaces
two members-at-large, thus keeping
the number of council members an.
Three ballots were needed to
reach a decision on the constitutional amendment question. On the
first ballot, the voting was status
quo, 270; Plan 1, 147; plan 11, 142;
plan   111, spoiled  240.
The second ballot, with plan II
eliminated showed status quo, 20;
plan I, 8(i; and plan III, 36. On the
third ballot, between status quo
and plan I the count was 114 and
88 votes respectively.
On the bowling alley question
student approval merely means approval in principle, not approval
of a specific contract. However,
AMS president Vaughn Lyon has
stated that if immediate action is
taken on the alleys they could be

Senior Editor—ELSIE GORBAT
. Few sights could have been more ludicrous than last week's display of "peace proposals" by Mr. Truman and Mr. Vishinsky.
By now, most people must realize that
Truman's proposals were carefully worded
so that the East could not accept and Mr.
Vishinsky's proposals precluded any support
from the west.
!>' ^
Truman proposed an immediate cease
fire in Korea (on U.N. terms), international
inspection of arms followed by disarmament,
and a four-power conference on peace.
1 §
Ift could not very well expect a cease fire
on U.N. terms and his other ideas weren't
much more likely to gain support.
The Russians want disarmament followed by inspection—not the other way around.
They figure (perhaps with cause) that the
inspection gimmick is geared simply to let the
U.S. know what Russia's strength is and that
tt would be followed only by stalemate on
dlaarmament.      /'
The four-power conference, of c&urse.
would not include Communist China, and the
East refuses to bargain without Mao at the
Vishinsky replied with a proposal for a
Korean cease fire somewhere about the
thirtyeighth parallel, outlawing of the
A-bomb, disarmament before inspection, and
a five-power conference on peace.
The West naturally doesn't want to settle
Korea on the thirty-eighth parallel—somewhere well behind their present battle lines.
The A-bomb is America's biggest ego-
booster and Truman isn't likely to let it go
without a lot of other things happening first
A Fair Deal?
It is time the Ostrom Plan is studied
to find out just what it is doing for our
sports programme. It appears that some teams
•re highly subsidized while others are operating on a minimum financial allotment.
American football players receive by far
the most considerations. As a team they travel
best, command the most publicity and are
given the most support. As individuals they
prosper most from the directorate funds. Examples of player benefits are the two weeks
of free room and board, the issue of boots,
socks, tee shirts and the free laundering service. These benefits are not available to members of other teams. Nor, except in extreme
cases, are provisions made for non footballers
to have their tuition and book costs paid by
outside interests.
The soccer and swimming teams are
probably tjie worst off. Soccer players on
their one annual trip to Nanaimo are required
to pay all expenses themselves. Swimmers,
Who must pay half the pool costs when practicing are allowed, because of a small budget,
to attend out of town conferences with only

Those who with misguided, yet idealistic
fervour have followed you along the tortuous
twists of "dialectic'' reasoning and tactics will,
no doubt, join you faithfully in your merriment. Yet it will fall to them to explain, or
skirt, the unpleasant fact that you have

The wtiole thing might have passed as a
good barrage of propoganda from both tides
but for Mr. Vishinsky's unforgivable blunder.
He laughed when Truman talked peace.
And a world eagerly waiting the slightest hint of peace could not help but be embittered.
Mr. Vishinsky has probably undone
months of Soviet labor in one single sentence: "I could hardly sleep for laughing."
Mr. Truman's plans might have been totally unacceptable. But surely they could
have been used as a bargaining point for some
worthwhile moves for peace.
If, instead of giving out a horse-laugh
and instead of replying with a set of pro
posals clearly not acceptable to the West, Mr.
Vishinsky had prepared a compromise program the onus for further negotiations would
have been on the West.
As it is, it will be rather difficult to convince the wc-jrld that Russia is any more interested in peace than the West.
The Kremlin, 30 years*ago the symbol
of hope for millions of oppressed people, has

It is time UBC realized it is a Canadian
University and not a weak reflection of an
American campus. Football is not the only
sport on this campus. English rugby if given
the publicity, cheerleaders, and support could
bring fame to the University. The spectator
appeal cannot be doubted when considering
the large crowds witnessing the annual games
on the campus with the Golden Bears.
Soccer, basketball, hockey, rowing, and
swimming should likewise be given a fairer
share of the athletic grants publicity and student support.

drastically new solution. It reiterates the
demand of the western nations that disarmament would have to be subject to some sort
of international control.
It demands the sacrifice of "one pure
ounce of sovereignty."
We are probably as sceptical as Mr. Vyshinsky that any of the world powers would
be willing to let go of its preciously guarded
sovereignty for the "mere'' sake of world
peace, but, alas, we find it no laughing matter.
Last Week Senator B. de Farris hinted
at the Young Liberals convention in Vancouver that the last laugh would belong to us.

where that laugh comes from. The laugh will

parently the climax of Mr. Armour's newspaper career. He claims"
to be the mouthpiece of all the
students, he speaks for them, he
gives personal opinions on behalf
of them. He ls very quick to champion "public opinion" on the cam-
pus. Why not, when he thinks it is
his own? We assume that if Mr.
A, so states, then most must
agree with htm. What happens if
jyr. A. tried to put as a headline
on his editorial: "Most agree with
Mr. Armour?" He should try It.
He says thiH most agree but he
himself disagrees. According to
Mr. A. It is unfortunate that Mr.
Gardner la-id the majority of the
blame on the West. Further he
says that It is doubly unfortunate
that Mr. Gardner's statement
tends to support the feeling that
peace movements are pro-Communist. The attack on DP's ls «-lso extremely unfortunate—Mr. Armour
says. But he' and most still do
agree! On what? What a confused article of the Edltor-ln<3hlef!
Further, Mr. A, defends the
SPM, saying that only one of the
founders was a Communist. By
the way, how does he know who
was and who Is? The Intention of
the SPM is to provide a forum to
discuss the vital problems of mankind is undoubtedly very nice.
But why were the founders not
satisfied with the chance giv«n
to them by the UN'? Doesn't Mr.
A. think that the UN Club Is an J
appropriate place for such discus- \
As far as the DP's are concerned, I think lt would be a waste of
time to discuss this point. I shall
not be surprised if Mr. Armour
considers me as one of those DP's
who are spreading malicious propaganda and generating internatlon-
a*l distrust. But I still do not believe, Mr. Armour, that most agree
with Mr. (lardner or with you.

I think the campus book store
s unity's from three aJAments.
These are poor service, high prices and a frequent tendency to he
out of stock of much needed books
and materials.
The Inevitable line-up ln the
book store a*re served by an under-
maned and often slow staff. Some
texts are not available for weeks
after school starts, and often rec-
ommeded books are not carried.
The price of books seem to have
their own separate inflationary
trend—ever upward.

two hours after he had been

Players Owb Scores
In Three Xmas Productions
The (three plays chosen by
the Players Club (or Its annual
Christmas performance last
night were an excellent combination.
The first play, "The Tragedy
of Tragedies" or "The Life and
Death of Tom Thumb the
Great," a satire on the tragedies of the 18th century by
Henry Fielding, Is a worthwhile
play that ls seldom produced.
Directed by Peter Mainwaring, "Tom Thumb" ls a difficult play In that Its comedy
relies a great deal en an understanding of dramas of Uie
18th century.
Although some of -tbe minor
characters were not able to une
the restraint necessary to complete the effect the overall pre-
loumance was still an enjoyable
farce fpr the twentieth century
Included In those to be cited
were Impulse DeVtek and Vic
Mitchell, two newcomers who
showed much understanding in
their roles of Queen Dollallolla
and King Arthur.
Thorton Wilde^'s "The Happy Jpurney from Trenton to
Camden," has been done many
times but Doreen Odllng and
Don Withrow managed to put
oyer many of the finer points.
At times it was difficult for
the audience to visualize the tip
or "piece out the inpepfections"
as the program states for with
the bare stage much Imagination on the part of both the
performers and the watchers Is
Janie Wright does an adequate
job of putting over the mother.
Ron Con gives a very realistic
performance as tihe normal son
who is "always on the go."
"T h e Second Shepherd's
Play," concerns three shepherds who saw the Christ child
and heard Ae angels. Fitting
in with the Christmas theme
this medieval morality play
was dealt with very realtstlcal**
Director John Thome and assistant Val Clyne did an excellent job with the three shepherds.
Tom Shorthouse, Lloyd Pisa-
pie and Ted McAlpine were
very well contrasted. Doris Chll-
eott, playing Gil the sheep-

ing in her 'portrayal of a sloven

Derek Mann ,set designer,
used a practically bare stage
with different levels and cleyer
lighting. It was very effective
and according to club memibers
made the entire stage costs
only $4.95.
Production manager was Joy
Coghill well-known ln Vancouver theatricals. The plays were
all well suited for supposedly
mature university students. Another student preformance will
be given tonight. Friday evening ls re-served for faculty and
Saturday for the general public.

In ihis modern age, nickel helps
a lad to grow up strong und
healthy, Lod liver oil, tooth
paste, medicines and toilet prep,
arutions are all processed in
tquipment made of pure nickel
or nickel alloys.
Today bicycles are being made
stronger, more durable — but
lighter in weight — with the
help of alloys made strong and
tough by the addition of nickel.
In the dairy, the purity of milk
is protected by the use of nickel-
alloy materials in the pasteurizers, coolers, bottling machines
and eltur equipment.
Hundreds of everyday uses for Nickel have been
developed by the Nickel industry through a
planned program of research. Today a large share of
Canada's Nickel production is being diverted from
peacetime uses into channels for preparedness. So
the Nickel mine facilities, greatly expanded over
the past decade, are again being operated at peak
capacity. There is actually more Nickel now being
delivered by Canada to the free world than in
any peacetime year.

Thursday, November 15, 1951
LAST Thursday was a dark, humiliating day for the University of British Columbia. Think of it friends — the
freedom of the press was challenged, on this campus.
Ubyssey staffers were—driven from their beloved Pub.
Dire threats of death and destruction from 'the Reds drove their
noble partriots Into hiding. But still the work wa-s carried on. Beaten
but undefeated, they fled to the library, the auditorium, even to the
cat did they flee, with precious "copy" clutched to their bosom.
* * *
One man, and one man alone remained to stem the attack of
the maddened Hordes. Les Armour? No! He fled with'his umbrella
clutched to hla bosom. This man who remained to the laat, was none
other than Alex MacGlllivray, undaunted Sports Kditor.
Yes friends, crouched behind a barricade of Remington-Rands,
with trusty blundenbuss clutched tightly ln his hot little fist, MacGlllivray made his last stand.
* * *
ABOUT 5:30 p.m, Friday, we decided there wasn't going to be an
attack after all. (Of course! we expected that). V. Fred Edward*
was sent down with a tiny white flag, to Inform Mac. that the
danger was over. An earth-shaking roar reveberated throughout the
subteranean channels of the Brock. Fred came running up the stairs,
his tattered white flag clutched in his hand. "MacGillivray's still down
there, but he's stark, raving mad,' Edwards shouted. "1 guess the
silence was too much for him."
* * #
A demoniaclal laugh floated up from the general area of the
Sport8 -office: "They'll never get me alive'' the high pitched voice
>uly, last Thursday was a fatefull day in the history of UBC
Four tragedies resulted from the thoughtless action of a certain barbaric element of the campus;
1. A. MaeQINivray, former Sport* Editor, is stark, raving mad.
2. Mae It •till barricaded in the Sports office, and will remain
there until hit ammunition runt out,

Gads, Wha' Hoppen To Our

IF LIGHTNING doesn't strike
twice in the same place, what
is this that has hit UBC's soc-
cering Thunderbirds during
the last two outings?
IT'S NO surprise when the foot,

American opposition but when the
powerful 'Bird fltba' enthusiasts
lose not once but twice in succession one might suspect something
drastically nasty has happened.
