 KEEP REQUESTS RATIONAL, VETS URGED
Greeks?
Canadian
campus
A CUP FEATURE
"TO BELONG or not to belong"—
that was the question. And when
it comes to fraternities Canadian
Campus voices a not too positive
"No."
Fraternities, whether officially
recognized or not, in the opinion of
Canadian students need not be
synonomous with fun. The small
college or university gets along
very well in a social way without
fraternities, though some arguments
are raised in their favour on the
large and, presumably less friendly,
campus. But the large campus,
speaking for itself, claims that they
are only one part of a university
life.
'^AUlie University of Toronto with
a registration of over 13,000 approximately 12 percent make up
population of Fraternity Row. The
non-fraternity body take their
stand for a variety of reasons,
ranging from excessive interest in
their courses, club affiliations and
enthusiastic participation in athletics to active anti-fraternity feeling. Tho opinion of the majority
if upheld officially since fraternities
are not recognized on the Toronto
campus.
Western views are expressed by
the Universities of Manitoba and
Alberta, representing both sides of
the question. University heads at
Manitoba sanction fraternity organizations, although student opinion varies, as many do not wish
to Join fraternities now or ever.
Fraternities are powerful on the
Manitoba campus, and though
given no space in The Manitoban,
student newspaper, they are
Uloted space in the university year
book.
.;"■•; Twelve fraternities are recog-
* Sized at the University of Alberta
fcut these take no active place in
student or social affairs. Frat and
fton-frat members comment "Maintain status quo. There is little
point in creating contradictions
Where the existing system meets
With general approval."
At Bishop's University, where
there are no fraternities, recognized or unrecognized, students
admit both sides of the question
but the general feeling is that
fraternities are detrimental, and
clJqtfS-forming. As one of the
smaller universities they believe
hat fraternal sentiments already
xist among the students and that
no further unifying agent is
necessary.
The same attitude is current on
Queen's University campus where
the detonating cap, in the form of
an official fraternity ban exploded
in October, 1934. Since that time
student opinion has agreed that
Queen's is too small to "foster false
feeling, distinction, disunity, and
exclusiveness." The majority are
absolutely against fraternities believing that they "spoil school
spirit."
A compromise has been reached
at McGill University where fraternities enjoy official recognition
though their members are a campus minority. Students on the
whole favor fraternities but consider them too expensive for some.
Pro or con, east or west, frat
member or non-frat member, there
are no hostile camps, no bitter
feelings, and very little friction.

Redmen Only
At Red Riot
THE SCIENCE BALL, currently
known as the Red Riot, will be
held at the Commodore on February 21, according to Jack Beverage, president of EUS.
"It is estimated that nearly 900
Engineers wish to attend the Riot,
and since there are only 500 tickets
available, it is necessary to limit
ticket sales to Engineers only,"
Beverage stated. "Any Artsman
arriving at the door, even though
correctly attired, properly accompanied, and well supplied, may
consider himself lucky if only relieved of his supplies and the
lower part of his clothing."
This includes members of other
faculties as well, even though they
may have tickets. (No refund on
tickets held by other faculties.)
At this point he added that there
will be a "strong-arm" squad in
the reception line to see that
Engineers only are allowed into
the inner sanctum, and extensive
plans have been iormulated to see
that this policy is carried out.
The EUS executive warns members of other faculties who may
have attended previous Science
Balls that they are NOT invited
to this one, and will avoid disappointment if they act accordingly.
Stanford Flies
Cross Country
PALO ALTO, Cal.-Flying for
sport by Stanford University undergraduates has reached such proportions that their Flying Club is
now planning an all-day, cross
country trip.
Both veteran pilots and students
who have never flown before have
clubbed together to purchase five
light planes in which they spend
their leisure hours zooming in the
clear blue Califorwa skies.
Rev. Paul Speaks
At VCF Meeting
REV. ELBERT PAUL, B.D., D.D.,
will be the speaker at the regular
meeting of the Varsity Christian
Fellowship at 12:30 Wednesday in
Arts 206. His subject will be "The
Unrealized Logic ot the Christian
Life."
Dr. Paul graduated from Acadia
University, Nova Scotia. He received his honorary Doctor of Divinity from the Western Baptist
Seminary, Portland, Oregon. At
UBC he attended Union College
where he obtained his Bachelor of
Divinity. Dr. Paul is now com-
mencink his lSTh year as pastor
of the First Baptist Church in
Vancouver.
COUNCIL REMAINS MUM
OVER MEMORIAL PLANS
FOR THE past week downtown papers have been featuring news that the university students are preparing to launch
a drive for the establishment of a permanent building on the
campus to serve as a memorial to those who died in the two
world wars.
Frosh Class Hops
Tomorrow Night
WEDNESDAY NIGHT will see
the annual Frosh Party in the
Armoury.
Philip Evans, president of the
freshman class, advises that music
will be served up in Dave McLelland's distinctive manner.
Daphne Black has scoured the
city for cats, an essential part of
the program.
Tickets may be obtained at the
quad box office or at tho Armoury
door.
Freshmen are admitted free on
presentation of their student
passes.
Council would make no statement.
The only official information
received as yet is from a press
release from the Extension Department which states:
"Plans are now under way for
a University War Memorial Campaign at the University of British
Columbia, it has been learned from
campus officials.
"A special committee, consisting
of students, graduates, and staff,
has been set up to decide on the
type of memorial to be constructed
and to launch the campaign.
"... the campaign . . . will
be launched on a province-wide
scale.  .   .  .
"A new student union building,
residences, and a permanent gymnasium have been suggested as
possible memorial buildings."

WORKERS START
INTERIM BUREAU
A PERMANENT employment bureau will probably be set
up on the campus under the University Administration it
was learned today from Hugh McLeod of the Undergraduate
Societies Committee on Employment.
However, since the committee
Hit that it is unlikely that this
bureau can be set up and functioning before the first week in March,
the employment committee endorsed the following proposals,
which were presented by a representative of the University Branch
of the Canadian Legion.
1. That a committee of students
be set up to gather information for
the proposed employment bureau
to work on. The undergraduate
committee will form the nucleus,
The remainder will be formed of
volunteers who are personally interested in each field.
2. That this committee shall first
prepare a list of all employers and
other people concerned, and that
this list will then be compared with
those of each faculty and other
cumpus organizations so that no
overlapping or duplications will
result.
3. Tnat employers then be contacted to ascertain their present
openings, their future needs, and
the qualifications required. This
Information would be filed and
prepared for the placement work
to be done by the Permanent employment bureau.
"These proposals must have the
co-operation of the student body,"
according to McLeod. "Approximately one hundred students are
required to gather the information."
McLeod asked all graduates, who
ore anxious to find an opening,
veterans planning their courses,
and undergraduates seeking summer employment to leave their
names, addresses, phone numbers,
and particular field of Interest at
the Employment Bureau in tho
AMS office.
Deadline for this is 1:30 p.m.,
•Friday, February 1.

GEN. CRERAR
HERE TODAY
GENERAL H. D. G. CRERAR'S
very special interest ln ex-service
personnel has brought him to our
campus in person. General Crerar
will speak to the student body in
th? auditorium at 12:30 today.
After his address General Crerar
will be Dr. MacKenzie's guest of
honor at an informal reception in
the Officers' mess.
General Crerar has expressed
his desire to meet all ex-service
men personally. He will be in the
Armoury after 1:45 for this purpose.       ,
General Crearar is very highly
regarded by all military experts as
a skillful strategist. It was General Grerar's genius that led the
Canadian forces through the D-
Day landings and the subsequent
battles culminating in the defeat
of Nazi Germany.
During General Crerar's long
and colorful military carreer he
has been awarded the C.H., C.B.,
and the D.S.O.

UP IN SMOKE
PALO ALTO, Cal.-Stanford's
campus is perturbed these days
because for the first time in three
generations students are smoking
on the quad.
Through an earthquake and two
world wars Stanford's undergrads
have followed "no smoking on
quad" request of the founder's
wife, only now to sta^t cluttering
the sacred quad with cigarette
butts.
Stanford president, Or. Ray Lyman Wilbur, points out that "In
a way it is not so significant as
the other traditions, but it ls one
of those things that, if maintained,
help to keep up the family
morale."
LINCOLN (UP)-Job opportunities for returning veterans and
displaced war workers are lessening in Nebraska.
According to John A. Coov.r,
state director of the U.S. Employment Service, the number of openings during the last month of 1943
dropped 28 per cent, from 9,016 in
November to 6,501.
The number of veterans visiting
the offices rose more than proportionately, and Coover predicted
the numbeer seeking work will
continue to increase. More than
half the state's veterans still are
in service, he said.
Former war workers, also, aro
searching for employment in increasing numbers.
Protests Jap
Deportation
KINGSTON, Jan. 29-(CUP)-A
regional conference of the Canadian -University Press held here
voiced "strong disapproval in deporting 10,000 Canadians of Japanese  origin."
The conference was of the unanimous opinion that the allegiance
of Japanese-Canadians should be
tested "by institution of judicially
conducted tribunals." They also
urged strongly that those "Japanese-Canadian citizens Dy birth be
given all rights of citizenship without further question."
The conference felt that all
principles of democratic freedom
were at stake and "should be
safeguarded before further transgressions occur."
The other topics under discussion were Canadian University
Press Institute of Student Opinion
and the University of Western
Ontario Gazette living costs poll.
Papers represented at the meeting included Queen's Journal, McGill Dally, and the Western
Ontario Gazette.
Montreal Vets
Organize, Act
MONTREAL, Jan. 29-(CUP)-
Six local veteran groups plan a
new society to be called the Committee of Montreal and District
Student Veterans, with representatives from McGill, University of
Montreal, Loyola College, Sir
George William's College, Commercial College of Rehabilitation
and McDonald College.
The group met January 22 to
consider immediate concrete action to implement decisions of first
national conference of student
veterans.
Main job will be contacting local
members of parliament acquiring
from them their views on the demands of the NCSV as outlined in
the brief presented to W. A. Tucker, chairman, House of Commons
Committee for Veterans Affairs.
RUBY QUEEN
RUBY DUNLOP, first year Arts,
was elected Queen of the Mardi
Gras during the course of the two

The two runners up, who became
Ruby's malds-of-honor, were Anne
Laird and Joan Jarvis.
Ruby Dunlop will, according to
the announcement in Saturday's
UBYSSEY, be "Beauty-on • the -

be in the Pub not later than one
p.m. Thursday. The copy must be
typed and double spaced.
Chinese Invite
Japanese Gripes
SHANGHAI (UP)-The Chinese
have adopted a new method of
sounding out the gripes, grouches
and opinions of the 80,000 local
Japanese in Hongkew's segregation
area.
Ten "public opinion" boxes, not
unlike the ones used for thc
mailing of letters, have been placed
on various busy street corners.
Into these the segregated sons of
Nippon have been cordially invited
to drop their opinions on this and
that, or offer any suggestions that
may come into their heads,
Contributions will be welcomed
on "practically anything"—either
persanal or private. Howover, the
office draws the line at any slanderous letters, and reserves the
right to\ ignore all "false charges."
In addition, contributors are asked
to give their names and addresses
-just in case.
The scheme has all the earmarks
—though perhaps not all the body
-of the B-Bag (Blow It Out
Her:!) department of the Stars
and Stripes, China edition. Maybe
that's where they got the idea.

Objects Of Legion
WARNING to keep their demands "intelligent and
reasonable" was voiced to members of UBC branch 72,
Canadian Legion by University President Norman A. M.
MacKenzie Monday.
Speaking at the presentation of the Legion charter to the
UBC group, Dr. MacKenzie told the student veterans: "When
you leave the service you become members of the public.
You become concerned with the general good as well as
your own good."
"The more you concern yourself
with the general welfare, the more
support you will get from the
public in your own demands. It
would be a mistake to limit interests to your own membership.
"It pays in the long run to be
reasonable and intelligent in what
you ask for."
Dr. MacKenzie, a member of the
Legion since its inception, payed
tribute to its aims and objects.
"It is best," he said, "to have
one single organization to bring to
the public's attention the rights
and problems of men and women
who served."
Occasion was presentation of a
Legion charter by provincial president Jack Henderson to UBC president Tony Greer and mass investiture of UBC student-veterans into
the organization.
A resolution passed by the Legion
branch pledged its support of
veterans' groups occupying the old
Hotel Vancouver.
A second resoultion expressing
opposition to Student Council plans
for erection of a second student
union building was defeated.
A speaker from the floor declared erection of a building for
student recreation would not be
advisable at this time when more
pressing needs face the University.

Fashion Trends
Lean To Plastics
FASHION SHOW was presented
by Home Economics students in
the Mildred Brock Room at 12:30
Friday.
Miss Elton presented the models
and discussed trends in fashion.
Most popular for spring wear are
suits featuring the tie waistline,
rounded shoulders, fuller hips and
pencil slim skirts. Top coats in
matching and contrasting shades
complete the ensemble.
One all purpose coat to be worn
over any type of suit, dress,
slacks, or sunsuit is the current
rage. Displaying the modern fuller
hip line, slim waist, and rounded
shoulders, this three quarter
length coat is made of fancy fabrics in pastel shades.
A stunning preview of summer
styles in swim suits is an all
plastic bathing suit guaranteed to
withstand the strain of strenuous
swimming. Another feature of the
creation is its ability to be repaired.

Fenn and Ken Appleby are going
to perform at intermission.
Dancing will be from nine to
one.   Refreshments will be served.
n* THE UBYSSEY, Tuesday, January 29, 1946, Page 2
Another Protest
Freedom of the press is a much-vaunted
ideal which every conscientious editor uses
as a moral shield and buckler during every
crisis and controversial situation. This freedom, the preservation of which is the
responsibility of the right-minded editor, has
made possible the expression of every type
of editorial policy in Canada ranging in
color from the conservative shades to
brilliant red.
Any attempts to manufacture editorial
policy out of one cloth and one particular
hue in one mass production shop should be
closely watched. Attempts have succeeded
in the past, and these successes have led
the layman to point a scornful finger at the
editor's shield and buckler and state that
freedom of the press can be purchased very
easily by interested parties.
That is why the Ubyssey protests against
the resolution reached at a regional Canadian
University Press Conference held in King-
About T.B.
Crowded living quarters for many students
have given health authorities much cause to
worry. Medical and dental facilities are few
at the university at present, and although
flu and cold epidemics have been relatively
light, one thriving epidemic in the university
would create a rather grave situation. That's
why every student, especially those who are
boarding, should not fail to take advantage
of the free TB tests offered by the Provincial
Board of Health and commencing February
11.
The procedure is easy. All one has to do
is make an appointment for a free TB test
EDITORIAL PAGE
ston this month with Queens University,
McGill, and University of Western Ontario
delegates attending. The story is on page
one.
The text of the resolution itself does not
concern us. If each individual editor feels
that he wants to launch a campaign, either
pro- or anti-Japanese, pro-tuxedos, or anti-
greek letter societies, that is up to the
individual editor. We protest more against
the idea of Canadian University Press, a
university news service organization, adopting Canadian University Press resolutions,
regional or otherwise, which might tend to
standardize university editorial opinion on
nation wide problems. Canadian Univesity
Press should not be regarded primarily as
a resolution-passing body rather than the
news disseminating and student-opinion exchange it is supposed to be. It can go a long
way if it attends primarily to the business
in hand.
in Hut 2, Students' Health Council, and the
Provincial Board of Health will do the rest.
The provincial health officials who take
their mobile "germ hunter" X-ray survey
unit with them, wherever they go, are
directing their worries and attentions to
people "who are working overtime, not
getting enough rest and relaxation, and who,
perhaps, are being forced to live in crowded
quarters."
This description fits most UBC students
to a "TB." Make your appointment for a
free TB test soon.
Here's To Controversy
Personally we don't know much about
Science courses and their relative merits
and demerits in the eyes of the National
Research Council. And it looks as if we
started something with extensive use of
Canadian University Press stories when we
began to reprint quotes from Queensmen on
their views concerning the superiority of
their Science courses in relation to the
remainder offered in Canada.
Queensmen state confidently in a recent
issue of the Queens Journal, campus newspaper, "For many years this university's
engineering branch has been acknowledged
as being second to none in Canada." We
reprinted the story.
So now the UBC Sciencemen are in a
fury and are busy brewing tempests in EUS
teapots instead of the regulation El Stuffo,
and are waving the banner for their university.
"UBC has received more scholarships from
the National Research Council than any
other university," indignantly countered
Jack Beveridge, president of the EUS, last
week. And now the Queensmen will have
to put that in their bunsen burners and
smoke it.
Whether Queens or UBC have the highest
Science standards isn't what is interesting
us at the moment, although naturally we
like to wave the flag for the University of
British Columbia.
The main point seems to be that provinciality shows signs of being discarded in
university ranks although provincial pride
remains intact.
University students are beginning to look
into the back yards of other university
students over the fence of general disinterest
and seem to be absorbed in what the other
fellow is doing.
And if the short-sightedness of provinciality which has to make way for the length
of vision necessary to anyone desiring to
look into anyone else's Canadian back yard,
is on its way out in university ranks, we're
in favor. We will redouble our efforts to
print more inter-university news and inter-
university controversy if it will help to
promote long-sightedness in Canadian University students.
UBC students may even begin to discard
the rose-colored glasses which have prevented many of them from being able to see east
beyond the Rockies, and the same program
of "visual" education may hold good for the
rest of Canadian students also.
StreSSeS    and    Strains        .... by Bruce Bewell
LEAVE US THROW A PARiTY
ONE of the most notable characteristics
of the average university student is his
willingness to throw a party to celebrate
any great event. Said event may range
anywhere from a fellow student flying in
from New York to a new haircut.
The first requirement for a celebration
is a place in which to have the party. Any
place with a roof and four walls will qualify,
although in summer these conditions may
be waived.    Inasmuch as there is always
some character present who insists on dancing it is also customary to have some source
of music to keep such persons happy. At
the opposite end of the list is the fellow who
went through three years of university
parties before he found out what the music
was for.
Another consideration is whether the
party will be held or thrown. There is a
fine distinction.
Just Practical
After all the above points are arranged
the major remaining problem is that of
finding a suitable partner for the evening.
After due consideration of social background, charm, and sense of humour, it is
customary to ask the girl with the car and
the valid permit — we are not at all
grasping, just practical.
When the night of the party arrives and
we call for the young lady some twenty
minutes late, one of two situations invariably
arises. Either we have to wait an additional
half hour or else she has been waiting
patiently   since   ten   minutes   before   the
Where's
In spite of these impediments the happy
couple usually contrives to get to the party
a mere hour after the appointed time only to
find that they are the first arrivals. The
origin of the custom of arriving late at
parties is lost in antiquity. The commonly
accepted "grand entrance" theory is obviously outdated, as any person arriving
fashionably late when everyone else is on
time will find that no one notices or even
cares who is coming in the door. In fact
very few can see the door.
Finally the shouting and the tumult dies
appointed time. This latter situation is a
trivial case, occurring about once in every
week containing two Thursdays.
While waiting for the charming co-ed the
parents' conversation follows a remarkably
familiar pattern to which the answers could
almost be prepared in advance. The main
difficulty there is that some parents ask the
questions in different order and the absent-
mined young Lochinvar is liable to find
himself proudly announcing that he is sure
that the Thunderbirds will walk all over the
league in answer to an innocent query about
his opinion of chlorination.
The Door?
and the celebrants depart for home, most
of them remembering about as much of the
events of the evening as has been related
here. The big mystery is what happens to
the young man who leaves the party at one
and gets home too late to make an 8:30.
He is the party to whose aid all good men
should come.
Which reminds us — what are you doing
next Thursday night? It seems that the
student branch of the Succulant Geranium
Growers of America is celebrating the discovery of its thirteenth new species.

STUDENTS AND FARES
THIS TIME we are really on the
wagon. The proposals are made
In dead earnest. We are dead sober whilst making them.
For years the students of UBC
have been travelling back and
forth on the B.C. Electric trolleys
and buses. For years they have
been paying regular fare on the
street cars plus an additional three
cents on the University Bus.
At the same tim« as the university students have been paying
their full fares, high school students have been travelling on
greatly  reduced  fares.
This is not a logical arrangement.
High school students, for the
most part, are living at home.
High school students have no big
tuitions to pay.
University students, a great
many of them, are living away
from home; they are paying board.
University students have to pay
from $175 to $225 tuition fees. And,
for the most part, the university
students are self-supporting.
Then take into account the vast
numbers of returned servicemen
who are attending university on
their grants of $60 to $80 per
month.
And, when all this has been
thoroughly digested in the mind,
figure out the average transportation costs of the average student
who travels back and forth from
the campus to his boarding house
every day: It works out to around
$1.25 a week.
Then subtract that buck and a
quarter a week from the twenty
dollars a month the student veteran has left after paying his
board (the figure is about the
same for many other students as
well), and notice how much it
leaves the student for his other
incidental expenses.
Not much, is it?
Oh, What To Do?
Here aro two things that could
be done to remedy the situation.
One: The B.C. Electric could
give university students a reduced
fare, somewhat approximating the
"student" fare that high school
pupils enjoy.
Two: The B.C. Electric could
alter its policy on the University
Bus route and include that run on
the regular city fare.
True, the campus is outside the
city limits of Vancouver, but are
there very many students who can
travel to and from the university
without travelling on city lines?
And, as they do It regularly, day
after day, It most certainly is not
fair that an extra fare should be
charged.
It would seem that the University bus line is a well-paying milk
run for the B.C. Electric with the
university students playing the
role of the cows.
The students of the University
of Saskatchewan banded together
late last week and demanded that
their city council provide them
with reduced street-car fares. Let
us hope that their efforts are successful.
But let us do more than hope
that their efforts are successful.
Let us start a campaign of our own.
It is time enough that the cattle
ceased to be milkeo regularly
twice a day.

Political parties will divide the
campus politically—so what? We
shall certainly learn far more by
controversy than by apathy. <
We believe that the majority of „
students in this university want to 1
fit themselves for life outside the
university, and that one of thi
best ways of doing this is to know
at first hand the platforms of ths
parties in the political picture.
Consequently, when the time
comes for them to leave the university they will take an active
Interest in our national, provincial
and civic government.
Yours sincerely,

They Want Politics
Dear Madam:
The majority of students on the
campus for tha next four years
will be voters, and in normal
times 30 per cent to 40 per ce,nt
of the students will be voters in
our national, provincial and civic
elections. Therefore, university
students are of political importance
and should not live in Mr. Klen-
man's "purple haze." These same
students are supposed to be the
leaders of thought in the country,
yet Mr. Klenman and Mr. Ferry
would refuse them the all important participation hi active
politics which is so necessary to
the life of a democracy.

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ?
By BERGE ELGAARD
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in a series of panels
written on the advisability of allowing political parties to
organize on the campus. The opinions expressed are those of
the writers and do not necessarily reflect those of the
Ubyssey.
POLITICS ON THE campus?
It is a progressive question and deserves an affirmative
answer.
The science and art of government should be on the compulsory list for all University students. Both the Bible and
• Shakespeare agreed that there is a time and place for every
thing—the place for politics is certainly where we find students, for it is indeed a subject that needs much study; the
time is now, for we have no time to lose on this "urgent
question.
A vote will quickly  settle the       ——-^————————
issue, the outcome of which will
not be in doubt: The faculty will
vote no — The students will vote
yes — The grey beards of tho
"Victoria stone pile" will definitely
vote no — The sororities will be
confused and won't vote at all.
The thoughts of the great majority of students towards politics is
very superficial, which is of course
because their knowledge In this
field Is very superficial. Therefore everything possible should be
done to encourage the rousing of
greater interest In this line. The
organization at UBC of sports and
"wild oats clubs" is probably one
of the best in Canada, but a great
deal more time and superfluous
energy could be spent on a few
more serious things.
I can find no intelligent reason
why we should not form national
political parties on the campus.
The score says: Disadvantages
nil — Advantages numerous.
Something is needed to stimulate
the student mind along political
lines. To make him realize the
future of this country is his baby,
his responsibility, that he must put
himself into shape for the future
when he will have to judge political rights from wrongs. And having the advantage of a university
degree, he must, more than anyone
else, put this country on the proper
road and see that the road is
maintained.
The big need of the world to-day
is for politicians and statesmen,
not for engineers, medicine-men, or
industrial sciencemen, as readers
of Technocracy would have us
believe, Conscientious statesmen,
economists and administrative men
automatically   give   birth   to   a
healthy nation (all other things
being equal). But concentration
on technocracy, with neglect of
building realistic leaders, will lead
to the abortion of our healthy but
infant country.
To-day the university boasts a
SPC, and IRC, and a Parliamentary
Forum which delves deeply into
political theories and international
hot-spots. Introduction of political
parties on the campus would certainly invigorate the activities of
these clubs.
An old French fairy tale says—
Once upon a time there were a
great many capable and honest
statesmen, but now they are extinct—the moral and solution of
which is not artificial insemmin-
ation, but a bit of well organized
ond concentrated political study.
Unfortunately politics has a lack of
appeal for many students, instead
of going to Arts 100 to hear Philpot
the politician they would rather
go to the "Caf" to hear Hayward,,
the Joker!
We all know a little about politics—none of us know enough. A
little study will show us how little
we know. A little more will show
us how the man we vote for
knows.
We all talk a great deal of
politics, but we don't argue politics
— for it is not an argument if
knowledge does not back it up.
We give opinions, we repeat other
peoples opinions, we criticize this,
we abhor that, we're dogmatic,
self-opinionated, .imperious, and
absolutely devoid of a proverbial
clue!—ignorance prevails.
Let's open the door to all politics!
groups and all politicians—and let
there be light.

LIMITED THUNDERBIRDS SWEEP CAGE SERIES TO TAKE TOP SPOT
Down Whitman College
By 74-38, 65-53 Scores
By LUKE MOYLS
UBC's THUNDERBIRD hoopers swept their series with
Whitman College Missionaries over the week-end as they
took a lop-sided 74-38 victory in the opener, and stopped
them with a 65-53 count Saturday night.
Although both games were ragged, the Blue and Gold
cagers were much too good for the invading Walla Walla
quintet. The Missionaries fought harder in the second game,
snatching rebounds and loose balls on every opportunity,
but it didn't make much difference to the UBC five.
Whitman Takes Early Lead
UBC RUGGER EXPERT—Maury Moyls scared the Varsity Vets' rugger squad Saturday as he drove through their
fores to score a try for UBC in the dying minutes of the
game. Harry Kabush attempted the convert which would
have made the score even closer, but the kick hit the bar
and bounced back on the field.
PUB-COUNCIL HOOP FRACAS?—No, the above shot
isn't a preview of the basketball match of the year, but the
scene from last year's thriller (below) will give readers an
idea of what's in store for them.
FOUR TALENTED BASKETBALLERS—This photo taken of Gordy Sykes, Sandy Robertson, Art Stilwell and Ole Bakken when they enrolled at UBC more than three years ago.
The foursome made the Varsity quintet in their freshman year and played together for three
years. All four figured in basketball victories over the week-end. Gordy Sykes, now with
Lauries Pie-Rates, paced them to a 50-49 victory over Stacys Saturday night while Art
Stilwell was playing in Eugene for Oregon's second team, and Robertson and Bakken spark-
edUBC to a pair of victories over Whitman.

However, Oregon came back
strong on Saturday night, led by
"mighty mite" Stan Williamson,
who hit the hemp at leisure, to
dampen Washington's hopes of a
clean sweep with a 54-52 overtime
triumph.
At Moscow, Idaho, the Vandals
played the fashionable host to the

Places Fourth
By JACK LEGATT
HAMPERED by a howling blizzard and heavy ground mist, the
Varsity "B" ski team managed to
grab the fourth spot In the annual
Noseeum's Kandahar race held
Sunday on Grouse mountain.
The B team, composed of Doug
Fraser, Gordy Cowan, John
Frazee, and Don Anderson ran up
the total time of 7 minutes, 15
seoonda to place behind the Tyee
"A" and "B," and Seymour teams.
Typical weather was witnessed
for this event—falling snow and
mist—and numerous racers missed
Crocks' Corner and dlssappeared
into tha trees and bushed off the
course. >,
"A" team suffers
The Varsity "A" team was really
behind the "eight-ball" and suffered fall after fall, .nun placing
near the end.
Gordy Cowan recorded the fastest time for the Varsity boys as
he flew down the course in one
minute, 45.4 seconds—eight seconds
behind Walt McMillan of the Seymour club who took premier honors for individual time.
Hundreds of ski loving Varsity
hikers were on hand to witness
one of the most hotly contested
events in many years. Over 66
competitors were entered and the
course record probably would have
been broken had there been fair
weather.

VARSITY SOCCER XI
DEFEATS UBC, 3-1
THE UNIVERSITY soccer teams
again staged their yearly epic on
the Stadium upper field but the
setting was quite different from
the week previous as Varsity
triumphed over UBC 3-1 to enter
the semi-finals of the Imperial
Cup.
With the inspiration of seeing
the rugger boys running around in
the snow the soccer boys, on the
referee's okay, imagined that a
pleasant way to spend a Saturday
afternoon would be to kick a
snowball around the top field. It
was more fun than inticipated.
REFEREE WORKS
For thc first few minutes of the
game ths players were pulling
everything in the baok, thinking
that the referee couldn't see very
well in the blizzard. But veteran
arbiter Andy Hunter proved that
he had infra-red eyesight and his
strict whistle tooting kept the
game in legal straits.
After the players had become
accustomed to the slippery field
and had fixed their timing on thc
bounces, the game got into the
regular rut of play with more than
the usual share of spectacular
plays.
UBC goalie Dick Stewart again
stood out in the white background
as the hero of the defense, and he
was kept quite busy as his blue-
shirted team was one man short
throughout the game.
The Varsity Gold-shirts had
control of the ball most of the
time except when Gordy Shepherd, speedy forward of UBC,
broke away and scored the loser's
one goal. Varsity also lacked
control of the ball whan the forwards got near the UBC goal and
muffed chance after chance. This
seems to be the Gold-shirts
chronic weakness, lack of firepower.
UBC SCORES FIRST
UBC scored the first goal of the
game after 20 minutes of play and
this goal proved an inspiration for
UBC but quite a shook for Varsity.
On the rush back after the goal
Lex Henderson t was fouled by a
UBC back and Don Petrie took
the penalty kick; and missed.
From; here on Varsity got mad.
Five minutes after UBC's score,
Varsity winger Bob Wilson took
it on himself to even the count
when he crossed a high shot over
the goalie's head. He repeated
the performance a minute later
but the ball hit the corner of ths
post and bounced out. This ended the scoring chances in the
short 35-minute half.
In the second half, Varsity moved Jack Rush up to the wing and
•his crosses to centre set the forwards into a constant attack. Lex
Henderson passed his quota of
missed chances and thought that
he had broken his jinx when he
blasted the ball through the goal,
but as luck would have it, one of
the players was offside.
Varsity's new centre forward,
Pat Harrison came into the picture with his shot from away out
which had goalie Stewart beat all
the way. He tried again with a
header which bounced off the bar,
but he didn't &ve up. Armand
Temoin's short pass into the centre
set Pat up for his second goal as
he dribbled through three defenders and scored.
MEET COLLINGWOOD
This win over UBC gives Varsity
the right to meet Collingwood in
the semi-finals of the Imperial
Cup in two weeks. It also gives
Ihe Gold-shirts some confidence In
their power-laden lineup.
There will be three workouts
this week for the soccer men;
Tuesday and Thursday at 3:30 and
Wednesday at noon. The players
will also be on hand Wednesday
afternoon at 3:30 to pick up a few
pointers from the Students-Faculty
game.
It is rumored that manager Dave
Comparelli will be at the game
with player forms in each hand to
sign up five prospective forwards
and a good centre-half for the
Coast League-bound Varsity
eleven.
ALPINE DAIRY .
HANDS DEFEAT
TO DOMINOES
VICTORIA'S pride of the maple
courts, the powerful Domino quintet absorbed its third defeat of the
season Saturday night at Victoria
High School Gym as they took a
back seat to Seattle's league-leading
Alpines who registered a 53-44
triumph over the Dominoes.
The Seattle crew, who are undefeated ln the Northwest Commercial loop, mixed a rugged brand
of play with a hectic last-halt
comeback to dump the Victorians.
It was Alpines second victory
over the Dominoes, having beaten
them in their first game of the
season. Victoria's other loss was
at the hands of the UBC Thunderbirds last December 1.
Shores Stop Coeds
In Prelim Contest
SHORES took a 26-20 decision
from Varsity Senior B girls in the
prelim game at Varsity gym
Saturday  night. *
Handicapped by lack of players
due to illness, UBC had only six
players, two of whom had bad
ankles. Nevertheless the Coeds
put up a good flght, starting with
a 6-2 lead, fading to a half-time
count of 14-8, and then reviving to
pace Shores with an even 20 points
in the last half.
Outstanding for tneir performances were Pheoe Manley, Taddy
Knapp, and Audrey McKim, of
th Glue and Gold quintette.
Whitman didn't know what hit
them in the opening five minutes
of the first game, the 'Birds chalking up nine points before the vis-
isors could even find the hoop.
The score was never close, UBC
leading by a 40-21 count at the
halfway mark, and doubling the
score, 34-17, in the second stanza
to walk off with the overwhelming
36-point triumph.
Saturday night's battle was much
rougher and tougher as the Mis
sionaries were converted into a
bunch of fighting fools by their
predicament. Altogether a total of
33 personal fouls were called by
arbiters Joe Martin and Floyd
Fesler of Bellingham. Whitman
drew 20 of them.
The visitors grabbed an early
lead and were on top of a 13-9
count before the Thunderbirds
started to bear down. Then UBC
tallied eight straight gaskets without answer to matte the scoreboard
read 25-13 for the locals.
Jokers' Club Does Its Bit
The two clubs left the floor at
the breather with Varsity ahead,
32-20. That was the signal for a
halftime display that featured
Hale Atkenso.i's fencing students
in an exhibition of swordplay.
While the artists performed with
foils and sabres, the Jokers' Gub
gave out with their rendition of
"Don't PENCE me in."
When the two quintest resumed
play after the breather, play rapidly became rugged, featuring
more football attacks than basketball plays. •
Although the Missionaries did
their utmost to hold down UBC's
score, the 'Birds managed to
crawl another five points to the
fore after five minutes of the
second half had elapseo.
The margin was narrowed 12
points again a few minutes later
as Captain Russ Hobbs led Whitman in an attack that brought the
score to 50-38. But Harry Kermode sank a pair of baskets and
Pat McGeer converted a free
throw to establish the 17-point
lead again.
Hoopers Off To Portland
It was largely due tq the efforts
of Dick Campbell, rotund Missionary pivotman, that the visitors cut
the difference back down to 12
counters in the dying minutes of
the tilt. Dick sent three successive
long shots swishing through the
hoop.
McGeer was awarded a foul shot
as the flnal whistle blew, and he
converted in spite of the fact that
the crowd was already on the floor
when he made the throw.
The Blue and Gold basketball
aggregation now preps for its trip
to Portland where it will try to
stretch its winning streak to eight
straight. The 'Birds tackle Portland University' Pilots in a two-
game series at the Rose City Friday and Saturay nights.
UBC's next conference contest is
slated for the following Thursday
in Tacoma when they meet the
College of Puget Sound Loggers.
Next home games will be in the
form of a return series against
Portland University here on
February 8 and 9.

Vets Plow Snow
To Top UBC, 6-3
ALTHOUGH most local sport
bowed to the caprices of the weatherman over the week-end, a
little snow wasn't enough to keep
hardy Varsity rugger and soccer
squads .basking in inactivity.
As a result, two snow frolics on
the campus Saturday afternoon
saw Varsity Vets triumph 6-3 over
UBC in a Miller Cup match while
the Varsity soccer eleven slogged
its way to a 3-1 win over UBC in
an Imperial Cup tilt.
THRILLING CUMAX
Andy Fleck and Chuck Wills
provided the Vets' scoring in the
bruising rugger battle played on
two inches of snow. Fleck crossed
the line midway through the opening half and Wills added the second score shortly after the intermission. Barry Morris missed the
converts.
A thrilling windup .telped take
the chill out dt file contest as
Maury Moyls climaxed a UBC
closing rally with a spectacular
display, intercepting a three-line
pass and toting the pigskin 40
yards for a score. Harry Kabush
hit the crossbar with his kick for
the convert and the ball bounced
back onto the field.
Girls To Work Out
GIRLS' GRASS hockey enthusiasts will try their hand at conditioning exercises on all future
Monday afternoon practices. Members of the women's grass hockey
teams will workout in the Stadium
from 3:45 to 4:15 if rain prevents
field practise.
