we're the best theatrical group iu
Canada, Canada's In poor shape."
Alumni of from one to twenty
years compose the group, according
to Keatley.
The winning play was descrlhcd
by Keatley as having the "typical
complicated Elizabethan plot." It
concerns a Vlennit gentleman who,

Dorothy Davies Defends
Her  lewd'   Production
Dorothy Davies, director of the much publicized Tobacco
Road, pulled an "Endicott" by packing Physics 200 to defend her
production before students Monday.
Students sut ln the aisles, on the
floor, filled the doorways and overflowed through two side doors ln
;in effort to heir and see the dramatic address by the well known
local actress and director. t
Apologizing for the impromptu
nature of her talk, Miss Dav'es explained that her .lawyer had advised her to forget the original
speech which she had planned to
give to UBC students.
The Tobacco Road appeal is
coming up March 17 and Miss
Davies was warned not to say anything which would prejudice the
Acting more as a chairman of a
discussion than as a speaker, she
encouraged questions and suggestions from the audience.
She had Just sturted to talk when
a janitor interrupted and shouted,
"Put out those cigarettes. There Is
no smoking in here."
Accompanied by cheers, Miss
Davis quipped. "Everywhere I go
it's tobacco." '
The emotional director read ex-
erpts from columns by Elmore
Phllpott and Bruce Hutchison
which defended her production.
Columnists Defend Play
Comparing Tobacco Road to Hollywood, Hutchison said that people
objected to the show because It
was  honest.
"Hollywood is devoted to smut
and has turned strip tease from
an act in a brothel to a Million
dollar business."
"We do not want . . . excited
spinsters to protect our morals."
Answering a question from the
cenlty' as something which was unfitting, or out ot place. She said
that a play which was "plain dirt"
Poverty And Sex Too Much
would not puck houses <as Tobacco
Road did.
"The theatre Is noj the place, to
go into social problems as such...
the production must be theatrical
in its true sense.''
When asked why the verdict of
the court was appealed she said
that it was appealed because a
lot of people wanted to appeal and
were willing to put up the money.
"It is out of my hands entirely.
I havent' the money to appeal myself. Besides I'm not carrying any
personal torch."
Miss Davies suggested that people were appalled at Tobacco Road
because poverty and sex were
shown together. She said that her
next play, "Light up the Sky'' was
much worse In some aspects than
Tobacco Road, but that she was
not afraid to present it because
It portrayed people who were well
The large audience was sent Into
a series of uproars when a student
questioned the production on
grounds that It did not have the
right to show some features of life.
The   student   said,   "I   didn't  see
the play myself but I read in tbe
papers that one of the actors came
out ln the morning, stood against
the fence and . . . «h . . , well . . .
I forget how they expressed it.
Miss Davies Interjected, "The
papers put it very sweetly;, they
said he performed his morning
"Well I cant' see how you can
do something on the stage that
you can't even do in your own
back yard."
Another student jumped to his
feet, "It IS done ln your back
Backyards And  Highways
Another shouted from across the
room, "It's still legal on the highway.''
Miss Davies defended the particular scene hy saying that It was
"a state of mind."
She said, "Unless you have seen
a man from behind when he was
urinating, you would not have
known what he was doing. A large
pa it of the audience did not know
what  was   supposed  to going on."
When the bell signifying the
end of the noon hour period rang.
Miss Davies asked, "Is It time to
She was answered by "No. no,
no,'' from the audience.
Asked If Everyman Theatre
would present Tobacco Road again
If the appeal was successful she
said that was up to Sidney Risk,
the producer.

Constitutional Revision
Open season has been declared again on the
AMS Constitution. True, constitutional revision campaigns do not constitute news on
this campus, but the perennial cutting and
patching undergone by our constitution have
disrupted its functions as an agent of stability
and continuity.
The composition of Students' Council is
again under fire. It seems that the suggestions
for an administration consisting of an executive and legislature have been scrapped and
that the present plan is an extension of Council with seats for five representatives from
the Undergraduate Societies Committee.
All the various combinations of Council
representation presented to date incorporate
some means of representing USC on Council
in the hope that these members would give
Council an aura of "proportionate representation". USC presidents have always bridled
at the ineffectiveness of the committee and
have sought cures for this situation in trying
to foist more of their members on Council.
However, the inactivity of USC gives no
promise, much less a guarantee, that any such
rearrangement would serve to improve the
efficiency of Council.
The claim that USC representation would
ensure proportional representation also fails
to stand, up to close scrutiny.
It is quite clear that the five members
who would represent USC on Students' Council would be chosen by a series of deals between the more powerful undergraduate societies. Even at best, as representatives of
groupings of allied societies, this scheme
would give us a system of rule by groups,
cliques, and selfish interests.
Even at present, attenSpts to seat people on
Council merely as representative of various
groups, clubs or faculties are constantly being
made. Most of them prove to be unsuccessful.
The general election system is the best guarantee against such abuses.
While it may seem expeditious at the moment to change the composition of Students'
Council as a solution to our present problems,
in the long run it would probably be much
more useful to ensure that the majority of
Council seats are not occupied by acclamation. The response in the sophomore elections
after the deadline extension proved that if
such a measure were incorporated in the constitution, Students' Council would be, in reality as well as in theory, a proportionately
representative body, and not the choice of a
few professional nomination list signatories.

In the early evening darkness of late December
a lone figure lurched down the gangplank of a small
coastal «tcamer and into the damp swirling mists
(fog) of Vancouver. This was Olaf Svensou.
U.S.P., Ill from the woods to see what the big city
bad lo offer in the form of warmth and good cheer
for the festive season, or good Nordic stock Olaf's
preferences ran lo blondes a hit on the In-fly side.
Built for comfort, not for speed, Olaf would say.
, With a happy grunt Ohif heaved his bulging
di'ffle bag over bis rihouldcr and started oil' down
tho wharf. The lonely crunch of bis caulks against
the planking echoed off into the night mingled
with an odd assortment of cliiikings aud gurglings
li-ein the duffle hag,
Theso sounds would not. be odd If you knew that
Olaf carried with him a sound supply of Christmas
cheer, some of which lie carried Internally and
therefore accounted lor the sandpapered eyeballs
aud the Jackhanitners pounding in Ills skull. Ill
spite of this Olaf was happy.
No longer would he toil all day for a paltry
Iweiilv-lwofifty In the rain-drenched hell of the
northern Charlottes. Now for as long as his cash
held out he could enjoy life to the fullest.
Other holiday seasons bad been spent iu tbe.iaine
way and although he could reliieniber nothing of
what went on in Ibeni be knew be had enjoyed
llieni. lie must have, for he was always broke
when be came to.
At Ihe end of tbe wharf Olaf hailed a cab and
set off for his favorite rest home "The Anchor
Hotel. ' "Wan damn fine place" was Olaf's idea of
the structure.
On the way be (inquired of tbe driver as to what
the social life in town was like. He found out
that the hootlcufjincj business was still going
strong, that the morality squad had closed down
a few houses, and that the State Theatre had sold
out to some outfit called the Avon and was now
producing Shakespearian plays and other dull
stuff not worth the attention of a gentleman of
the world,   "A damn shame", thought Olaf.
The next thins you know they'll be having a
Social Credit i-ily council. This thought so unnerved

then It suddenly dwindled to a very low murmur.
All heads swung towards the entrance 'where
there appeared, standing side by side, two of the
boys in blue, the stalwarts of the law.
Not a word was said as tbe police gazed around
the room. Now and then they would pause to peer
intently at some face before moving on. The revelers silently sweated out thin scrutiny with lowered
eye; or appeared to tiud something of particular
interest iu the opposite direction.
Many of them had dealings with the police iu
the past and did not want to repeat the experience
wliile others did- not want to have their Initial
conliu l. Whatever their reason no one did or said
anything which would at'.iact attention to themselves.   No one, that is, except Olaf.

In the darkness that followed the air was rent
with groans, curses, thuds, sounds of breaking

Although tho university total
fell far short of tiie desired 4000
pints, had It not been for The
Ubyssey we would have probably
ntlBsed 2000.
So to Joe Schlesinger, Ed Parker, Valerie Oarston, Al Fothering-
h'am, Myra Green, Hux Lovely,
and any others on your staff that
contributed to the success of the
drive, we are very grateful for
your support. .
Yours truly,
Co-chairmen, Blood Drive
Editor, the Ubysrtey,
Doar Sir:
When tho Ited Cross left the
campus kist Tuesday night over
2900 students had gone -through
the clinic. This of course Includes
approximately 400 rejects. Last
year in February the net collections to the Bed Cross were 231)1,
not including rejects. (It will be
recalled that in February, 1952,
students signed pledges to give
over 3000 pints of blood. Of Btudents that signed pledges, only
20 percent gave later.)
To those students who gave
their blood we say "thank yon".
There really wasn't anything to
it, was there? You probably left
the clinic feeling that you had
made a worthwhile contribution—
a charitable donation; something
you as a student could give without Involving money.
To those students that were unable to give blood because of
medical or religious reasons but
nevertheless came to the clinic to
get classified as u "reject" thus
giving   credit   to   the   university.
we also say "thank you.''
To the 2400 students that were
either too afralo or too lazy (it
had to be one or the other) to attend the clinic, we feel sorry for

the truth.

asked the Bed Cross to leave.

Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I urn writing lo you to correct
some of tbe misleading and twisted statements made by Mr. 1).
Lanskail in a spech to the Student Liberal Club recently as reported in your issue of February 10.
Mr. Lanskail denied my statement that a very large percentage
of the province's timber cut on
tbe ccast is Douglas Fir. "In fact."
Mr. Lanskail said, "the truth is
that ln 1051 less than 41 percent
cut in the coast sawmills of British Columbia was Douglas Fir.
and this can easily he ascertained
from provincial government figures."
The provincial library has supplied me with the following figures:

Mr. Lanskail's claim that the

percent of the logging in the
coast district is incorrect. The
picture is as follows:
Four firms- Canadian Forest
Products. Alaska Pine, McMillan-
Bloedel, aud the Western Lumber
Co. Ltd., cut between them approximately 1011 million board
feet of logs or over :>•• percent of
the log production In the coastal
If we add the plywood and pulp-
wood consumed by these and the
top half dozen pulp companies in
the coastal area, which in many
cases are owned and controlled
by the four companies mentioned
we receive a figure of 1983 million
hoard feet, or something over 60
percent of the total lumber cut on
the coast. This monopoly trend
is Increasing.
It is in my opinion Indefensible
that a mau in Mr. Lanskail's position should get up and publicly
make such mis-statements of

Next September, Jim leaves for
St. John's College, Oxford, where
he will continue his studies, mainly silviculture. While across the
pond, Jim plans to visit the Scandinavian countries and to travel
in Europe ns extensively as his
finances will allow.
When notified that ho had won
the high award, Jim was both surprised and thrilled. During his
third year of Forestry his 'academic
average was 81.6 percent.
He was a member of the university rugger team and In the 1951-52
session Jim was a member of the
Undergraduate Societies Commit
tee as well as Secretary and Program Director of the Forest Club.
The following year he was elected
president of that club. With all
these -activities Jim still found
time to become a member of Beta

It will be a grand opportunity
for all cub members, M.S.F., F,K„

ac(|iuilntances with graduates or
men of the forest industry.
Cocktails will be served at 11:15
and the dinner at 7:00. After the
toasts and unavoidable speeches

The guest speaker for the evening will be Mr. Murk (hu-inley of

man with much experience to his
credit, both with private- Industry
and the l?.f. Forest Service.
To ivlnrl up ihe evening it is
customary to adjourn around H>: :5n

of  further refreshments.

/ solution to the problem which
was suitable.to the majority was

white trim and that a *re«n and

a green and white faculty sweater

to have Its own way in the Coast
League "B" division Saturday ub
they trounced Huntingdon 4-0

was being overpowered 6-1.

triumph for Bud Dobson, as he
scored nil of tbe Point Qrey squad's
four goals aud took over the league
^coring lead by his efforts.
in the first halt Huntingdon held
the edge In piny on wide crossfteld
exchanges which baffled the hustling students but the city club
showed a lack of finish around the
goal. Dobson's first counter came
on a deflected shot as he punched
home the cleared ball and followed
soon after with a shot that hue'
the rival goalkeeper beaten all thq
This two-goal splurge by Varsity
soured the downtown club and the
second half was a shambles with
the UBC club toying with their opponents.
Particularly outstanding for the
blue and gold aggregation was
goalkeeper Ernie Kuyt, who turned
away shot after shot labelled sure
goals and made a sensational save
of a penalty kick.
The fullbacks and halfs did no
allow too many direct shots on
the goal and so assisted Kuyt in
his shutout.
Bad news came, however( when
Blll«Popowlch Injured his bad knee
and there Is a possibility that he
will miss Varsity's next contest
