"NOTHING TO IT," says Maureen Kennedy 2nd yeaiwArts,
as Miss Jessie Bartel takes Maureen's contribution to the
Inter-collegiate Blood Drive.   Maureen was the 10,000th
•   student to donate blood to competitive UBC blood drive.
Campus Co-ed Learns
Donating Blood Simple
Maureen Kennedy is an average all-rounded second year Arts
student* The Ubyssey decided that her reactions to her first blood
drive would be typical of hundreds of other shrinking co-eds and
Applied Sciencemen.
So Maureen was propositioned, overruled and escorted to
the Armouries.
When she entered the clinic, poor Maureen was scared stiff.
Nervously-sipping her coke, she pictured herself staggering out
of the clinic, ricdled  with hypodermic rtecdlcs and drained  of
her red corpuscles.
She dragged herself to the desk, shut her eyes, and shot(her
hand in the general direction of the nurse.
No, she had never given blood before, said Maureen wincing
as the nurse skillfully pricked her finger.
She never intended to again, she glared at her merciless
Ubyisey cohorts.
After performing mysterious tricks with Maureen's sample
of blood, the nurse said happily thai it was perfectly healthy, and
that the Clinic would be only too happy to accept it.
Maureen saw her last avenue of escape blocked. She dolefully  denied having  had jaundice,  malaria  or any  other  horrid
sounding disease, and was handed over to the next nurse.
When the next typewriter had extracted her name, age and
faculty, Maureen passed irrto tho clutches of iwo sweet young
co-eds who wanted to know what clubs she belonged to.
By this time she was ready for the nice soft bed a nurse
offered her. After swabbing her arm vigorously and wrapping
what looked like a deflated inner tube around her arn/, the nurse
gave her a wooden stick to play v/ith.
Then another veiled vision approa'ched her wielding the
dreaded needle and bottle.
Maureen  shuddered.    She  looked  wildly  around  for help,
but Spike Tofte, Drive chairman, was busy holding some freshette's
hand on the other side of the Armouries,
Muttering sweet nothings in her car, the nurse busied herself with Maureen's arm. Prepared for thc worst, Maureen was
astonished when the only thing she felt was one irritating prick.
When the bottle was filled, Maureen was taped up and transferred to another bed. Forty winks later another nurse approached.
"You can go now, clear, and thanks for coming," she said, pro-
polling Maureen toward the coke and coffee counter.
Drinking her coke, Maureen reviewed the whole business of
donating blood. It certainly wasn't a painful experience, and she
didn't have any after effects, like dizziness or nausea. It
wasn't at all what she had thought it would be.
As she was leaving a nurse warned her not to smoke foi
another hmir, and asked her how she was feeling.
"The greatest," said  Maureen.

AMS To Pay $1200
Flying Club Debt
The Alma Mater Society has been presented by the Bank
of Montreal with a bill for $1200 in debts accumulated by a
now-defunct campus flying club.
The Aero Club, which was'active on campus three years
ago, in flight training for students, apparently borrowed an
unknown amount ef money from*
the bank, which was reduced to
Four Way Fight For
Presidential Post
Ubyssey Election Reporter
Last-second nomination of Dick Underhill for AMS' president Thursday was formally protested as being "one-and-
a-half minutes late" by .an opposing candidate's campaign
Supporters of presidential candidate Albert Plant handod
a written protest to Jim McNish, $-
$1200 by the sale of two aircraft
and one Link trainer.
According to AMS treasurer
Allan Goldsmith, the trouble lies
in the fact that the AMS guaranteed this note of an organization
over which it had no control, and
is now faced with the responsibility of exerting its guarantee.
The AMS treasurer said further that the only person who
knows where the money went
was the first president of the
club Jim Harty, now thought to
be somewhere in Texas.
Legal advisors to the AMS "ay
that it would cost too much
money to trace the ex-president
apd even then there would be
insufficient evidence available
to take any action against him.
To ward off any danger of this
happening again, treasurer Goldsmith said he will ask all organizations which do not have their
auditing and budgeting handled
by the AMS to do so.
At present there are only two
organizations on campus whoso
budgeting and auditing dp not
come under the AMS; the Varsity Outdoor Club and the Newman club. Goldsmith is now entering into discussions with these
two groups.
Rights  Bill
By  Panel
Students heard some old-
fashioned "politicking" Thursday during a panel discussion
between B.C.'s top five politicians, sixth in the Columbia
Bi-Centennial series.
Knife-edged bantering and
joking found its way into serious
discussion, as the politicos split
over the need for a Canadian
Bill of Rights.'
Social Credit Attorney-General Rpbert Bonner said he still
remained to be 'convinced that
Canada needed a Bill of Rlght3,
while Liberal leader Arthur
Laing maintained that the British North America Act was sufficient as a "Bill of Rights", calling it the "guiding light for Canadian politics."
Tory leader Deane Finlayson's
stand was that a Bill of Rights isjbe decided at the polls February

Cynics Claim
Sensual Says
Arts are the life blood of civilization, Dr. Irwin Edman
told members of the Vancouver Art Gallery Monday night.
Speaking on "The Arts and Man" the Columbia University
philosopher said that western civilization has split into two
camps—those who are bored by«
art and those who are sensitive
to it.
"Those who are bored regard the arts with suspicion and
impatience," declared Dr. Edman. "They consider art trivial,
especially in times of war and
economic crises.".
Because tne artist appeals
frankly to the senses, he :s
j thought to be sensuous, or scn-
isual or, at the extreme, effemin-
: ate," Edman said. As a "critique
! of established ways of thinking,"
[ the artist is suspected of being
I revolutionary and feared as dan-
j gerous.
'■ "Art devotees exaggerate as
. much as the critics," he continued. "They feel that art appreciation is a mystical experience that
only the particulary sensitive
can enjoy."

A Petty Action
It is hoped that the type of behavior displayed at nomination deadline In the AMS office Thursday afternoon does
hot characterize the presidential campaign during the next
i The action of the backers of Albert Plant in contesting
tbe) filing of a nomination which was a whole 40 seconds late
«» be interpreted as nothing but hair-splitting. The fact that
!hf riMOQ for the 40 seconds delay was wholly unintentional,
the result of car trouble, does not say much for Mr. Plant's
eftmpilgh manager and seconder who were responsible for
the ridiculous protest.
By quibbling over 40 seconds, Mr. Plant's backers arc
llgjojt admitting that their candidate can not compete favorably with the offending candidate on the election platform
but would rather have that candidate disqualified by a
technicality befose the campaign.
It ia realized that emotions run high in the heat of
ittudent elections and reason may be obliterated by petty
squabbles but there is no excuse for the very small and very
WllMrable protest, which was filed at nomination deadline
Mr. Plant's supporters may have done their candidate
immeasurable harm by trying to win the election by i
technicality rather than by the ballot box.
A Clarification
A little clarification may be necessary as a result of tbe
Home Economics "faculty page" in Thursday's Ubyssey. It is
unfortunate if the Home Economics faculty feels that their
copy was rejected because The Ubyssey has a personal
fp-udge against that faculty.
The copy was rejected simply because it was not up to
the standard of a university newspaper. It was again unfortunate that Home Econmics was the first faculty to have
an edition and it should not be assumed that their copy was
rejected simply to set an example for other faculties.
If any other faculty would have handed in childish
copy such as that submitted by Home Ec, that copy would
also have been rejected. Home Ec may have picked the wrong
date for a faculty edition, but they still submitted substandard copy.
A Challenge!
When Mr. Hector McCrae, on behalf of Roman Catholicism, spoke at one of our "Bi-centenniaV meetings he defended
the banning of the film "Martin Luther" in the province of
Quebec on the grounds that it "attacked a sector of the population." I would like to point out to Mr. McCrae and all
members of the campus Newman Club that the film has been
widely acclaimed as historically correct and, moreover, based
largely on records* kept by the Catholic church.
If it happens that history somewhat discredits a certain
group of people, it is certainly cowardly to build a reputation based on stifling, the dissemination of these historic developments. .If the Catholic church, wishing to shelter itself
in the confines of censorship, bans a film for its members it
is bad enough, but if an entire province ^including many Protestants and other non-Catholics is forced to abide by such a
censorship ruling, it is high time that enlightened Canadians
take up the fight to defend civil liberties, freedom of thought
and the right to knowlede and the free use thereof.
I feel that if, we as university students, want to point out
to our American friends the danger inherent in McCarthyism,
we should first sweep our own doorstep.
Judging on the basis of contemporary development, the
Catholic church need but embrace another 20 or 2'5'/' of our
population and overnight our democratic freedoms would be
nothing but a cherished memory. The time to point out this
danger is now. We may suddenly wake up to find that in
criticizing McCarthy and his techniques we have neglected
vigilance at home and no longer have even the right to
criticize McCarthy or any other demagogue.
For the cause of enlightenment I challenge any or all of
the members of the campus Newman Club to a public debate
on one of the following: "Resolved that the banning of the
'Martin Luther' film in Quebec is a threat to democracy", or
"Resolved that the banning of 'Martin Luther' in Quebec
is contradictory to the theme 'Man's right to knovyleclge and
the free use thereof." It' this challenge is not accepted, there-
will be all the more cause for action,

Writ & if Hand
More Discreet
%It seems to me that some of
the academic freedom discus-
Bed during Wednesday's panel
discussion was misused at that
very meeting. Although the
time taken by the distinguished speakers was over the limit, the audience was subjected
to additional "free knowledge" for which they had
neither time nor thirst. Dr.
Black's insistence on "rehashing" the points made by the
members of the panel was not
only an imposition upon students who had lectures to attend, but also an insult, whether intentional or not, to the
speaker's powers of presentation.
The fact that some of the
students, in turn, were forced to leave in search of knowledge far more pertinent to
their immediate needs caused
uncomfortable tension among
those who remained, and resulted in ultimate neglect of
the chairman's superfluous remarks.
It is to be sincerely hoped
that future moderators will
be more' discreet in chairing
such assemblies.

First Year Arts
From Victoria       »
Before the regrettable book-
burning episode which stirred
up the current tempest in a
teapot, we Victoria students
were reasonably well-accomo-
dated at UBC. We put up with
staves that inevitably followed
us as we made our way through
the rabble in the caf, nursing
our pots of tea; we did not attempt to correct the misguided
notion popular in the library
thatetudents from Victoria College were like new-born babes
in the labyrinth' of learning
when it came to the proper procedure to be observed in taking
out a book; we received snide
remarks about our weather and
our politics like gentlemen.
But now this tempest in a
teapot has got earnest young
men rushing around shouting
"Areopagltioa" (or words to
that effect) life has become
quite unbearable. No longer
can we make for our peaceful
little oasis of culture in the
caf; we are hemmed in on one
side by the sorority tables and
on the other by the equally
hostile Players Club. Philosophy is being brought with a
vengeance from the closets, to
the tea tables.
And no less a philosopher
than Dr. Erwin   Edman of Co-
Ilumbia University referred recently to Victoria, in his address to the student body , as a
"nineteenth century outpost."
Of course, I ought to have been
prepared for philosophy professors from Columbia University.
We had one once at Victoria
College, who made frequent
sarcastic remarks about Victoria's soggy Intellectual climate. (There was some excuse
for her. She had a pony-tall
and wore tight black sweaters).
Surely something more profound might be expected from
Dr. Edman. The superficiality
of his remark on the subject
would indicate tnat he understands the motive behind Mayor Harrison's action no better
than the rest of the populance.
*T*        *T*        V
To vindicate the honour of
our native city (and we Victorians feel strongly about thc
old school tie) I consider it my
duty to enlighten you,
sir, with a true interpretation
of  the  situation.
Now, get this point clear
first. Victoria is neither sleepy,
stuffy nor staid: she is simply
self-conscious. Who wouldn't be,
with the task of living up to
an appellation like "a little
bit of Olde Englande." AU*Vic-
torians regard this as a solemn
obligation. However, let me
assure you that you make a
serious mistake if you think
the force behind the flower
pots, and the Bobbys and "Ye
Olde Charming Inn" is antiquarian  delight.
H*    H*    *
II is not; it is strictly commercial.     The     words     which
made Parliament Hill tremble
gave crafty pleasure to the
stalwart soni of Victoria who
make up the Chamber of Commerce. And our noble compatriots at Victoria College did
their bit by providing a free
tourist attraction. Victoria is
finally on the map and the
city council will be providing
suitable bait for the poor gulls
who will be making their way
to Victoria next summer, be
they red, pink or merely suntanned.
After this explanation I think
you will understand, Sir, our
indignation at hearing our fair
$ity called "an outpost of the
nineteenth century." We had
rather fancied ourselves as inhabiting the eighteenth century.
I remain, Sir,
Your humble and obedient servant.

With reference to what passed as a column in Tuesday's

If you ever wondered why
a hardy looking soul as Dick
Mitchell should be losing his
hair the answer is now -quite
evident. Dick coaches the Varsity hockey team and what has
happened to him is enough to
make Doug Hepburn go bald.
When the season opened Dick
had only one opportunity to see
his prospective charges in practise. On the eve of the first
game Dick knew neither his
starting lineup nor if he had a
hockey team.
Well the boys did their best
for Dick but they lost their first
two games in overtime periods.
Needless to say this didn't help
the condition of Mr. Mitchell's
With a couple of weeks of
practice under their skates the
pucksters started to roll and before long they were battling the
'Kerries for first place. ' Then
came the Xmas layoff and, what
is worse, the Xmas exams.
What the Xmas exams did
to the hockey team and to Dick's
cranium an iceberg did to the
Titanic. No leas than four of
the outsanding' players on the
team, Brian Leppard, Ray Ing,
Hugh McCullouoh and $ob Lbv-
ett were declared ineligible be-
cause of marks.
The team has proceded to drop
from first place to fourth place
in the league standings. .With
only two games left to play it
doesn't look as if the Birds are
going to win the title this year.
What coach Mitchell is gunning for now is the Hamber
Cup. Last year we lost the
much coveted cup to the University of Alberta. This year the
Albertans will be here on February 22 and 23 to try and keep
the cup for another year.
Coach Mitchell feels that UBC
has a real chance of winning
this year but he will make no
i definite predictions. All games
will be played in the Kerrisdale
Arena and Dick and the team
hope to see it filled with UBC
rooters. Remembe.r save Feb-

a few breaks in the right places
t^ey could have very easily had
better than a 500 average.

of the toughest defensive ball-
clubs in America. In coach Pomfret's own words, "They Just
don't check you, they over-
