Gostick Urges Anti - Red Commission
Friday the thirteenth may prove an unlucky day for
three UBC students on trial this morning for assault and
John MacKinfton, Peter Mitchell, and Robert Giegerich,
arrested following the recent applied science smoker, appear before Magistrate W. W. B. Maclnnes in police court
The trio have had two adjournments in previous

Forum   In   Favor
Of Pacific League

In the Evergreen Conference after the issue was hotly debated by student speakers Thursday.
Opposing stands were taken in poorly attended meeting by
Bill   Hutchinson,   advocating  at>      —■
purely Canadian plan divorced
from the U.S., while Bill Boulding urged UBC stay in the conference.
Up for vote ln the Spring AMS
meeting Is the question whether
UBC should withdraw from Evergreen. The proposed alternative
would be a western intercollegiate football union.
Promoting Canadian nationalism in the forum debate. 'Hut-
ehinson urged UBC "divorce
from the influence of American
cultural and athletic activities
to reinforce a purely Canadian
way of university life."
Why should we associate ourselves with American schools
that offer athletic scholarships
and have dissimilar academic
standards?" asked Hutchispn.
Countering his stand, Bill
Boulding declared, "The other
Canadian universities aren't interested in a conference because
of financial reasons. Besides,
they haven't the calibre to compete with us." -4
Audience Is
By Campbell
For lack of a better name,
they call Roy Campbell a poet.
The cherubic - countenanced
story-teller, soldier, sailor, fisherman, poet, and adventurer
held spell-bound a huge audience
of students and faculty on Tues-
, day noon.
The crowd, expecting merely
a reading of Mr. Campbell's
poetry, was delighted with his
lengthy introductory tales, which
explained the poetry that followed.
Mr. Campbell's poetry draws
much of its power from thc
background story of its writing.
It can be appreciated far more,
then, when read and explained
by the poet.
Mr. Campbell is a satirist
Satiric touches slip out in his
conversaton, and cannot help
but slip into his verse. Perhaps
more than giraffes can be found
"vegetating   in   tow'rng   sloth."
The varied occupations of the
poet have been a direct influence on his work.
Compulsory social service
should be required of all university students.
•This opinion was expressed by
Lewis Perinbam, travelling secretary of the World University
Service, before a slim crowd at
a United Nations Club meeting
yesterday noon.
"Students all over the world
have a great responsibility, but
far too few students realize this
responsibility" sdid Perinbam.
He suggested that compulsory
social service is the way to make
Students realize this responsibility.
Using the students in Asia as
an example, Perinbam showed
how the World University Service is accepting the responsibility of service to the world.
WUS is providing a health service to Indian students, many of
whom are suffering from chronic malnutrition and are extremely susceptible to all forms of
Student riots in India are partly caused by the lack of unity
among the Indian students themselves, said Perinbam. In contrast to this, students of Indonesia are united under the common bond of Islam and encounter few of the troubles of the
Indian students.
At present, the African students are in the worst position
of all students of the world and
the WUS has launched an aid
program for their benefit. According to Perinbam, the African
students have been "left out of
it" and steps are being taken to
alleviate this condition.

Plays Successfully Staged
Thursday night the Varsity
Players Club successfully presented two completely different plays which matched the
talents of top Vancouver directors Sidney Risk and Dorothy Davies.
In the west coast premiere
of "A Masque of Aesop," by
Canadian author Robertson
Davies, Mr. Risk combined excellent lighting and stage action with coaching that, drew
powerful and urgent acting
from   Ihe cast.

Aesop is brought up for
trial by the gods, who manifest earthly weaknesses iu
their anger at his clear insight
into false human motives.
Defending himself to judge
Apollo, Aesop presents three
fables. In masks which unfortunately deaden voices, the
actors in the fables present a
well visualized and satirical
picture of human weaknesses.

Fair Hiring
Called For
By Buttedahl
The complete story of Fair
Employment Practices legislation in Canada and the United
States was given by Knute Buttedahl, executive director of Vancouver's Civic Unity council, to
students at a Civil Liberties Union meeting Tuesday noon.
Fair Employment legislation,
which prohibits any discrimination regarding race, natural origin or religion by employers,
unions or hiring agencies, has
been passed in thr«e provinces,
by the federal government and in
all American states.
British Columbia has no legislation of this type. The only U»
gal protection against discrimination of B.C. workers is afforded hy the federal legislation
which concerns only certain industries, shipping, railway, airlines, nldio stations and hanks,
Mr. Buttedahl said.
Legislation prohibiting discrimination in purely provincial industries designed to supplement Ihe federal act, has been
passed in Saskatchewan, Ontario anil   Manitoba

A Canad^n McCarthy?
A speaker who called hinUif the president of the Canadian Anti-CoiM||unist Association, told students Tuesday l|at an Un-
Canadian Activities Commistffljf should be
organized to ferret out communis In Canada.
The speaker, a Mr. Ron Go|j|k, also said
that communists are well establlihed in universities and churches in this;'|pintry. Getting up steam, the self-style^pitch-hunter
stated that Senator Joe McC«W should be
invited to Canada and that tMp*PP should
be out-lawed. ''%
From this view it seem* that Mr.
Gostick's opinion of McCartltf fs as much
one of envy as it is of admirj<^|. Although
this is a condemning statement in itself, a
few items may be noted in «M||dering the
validity of some of the chargotJfade by the
speaker. 3
Gostick is the sole editor f|3 publisher
of the Canadian Intelligence Swvlce, a filthy
anti-semitic, anti-United Nation! sheet published in Flesherton, Ontario. The publication's main claim to fame is that it is also hysterically anti-communist in a nUfoner similar
to Gostick's speech here. The maithead on the
four-page paper reads: "This it an Independent publication dedicated to tht preservation
and strengthening of the Christian Way of
Life, and the exposure and defeat pf Marxism
in all its subversive forms."
A few excerpts from .a recent edition
reveal just how Gostick's waited mind
operates. Claiming that Jewish inferests put
pressure on 20th Century-Fox to change the
script in the filming of The Robe* the paper
defines the Anti-Defamation League as ".. .a
Jewish organization (considered by many
keen observers to be a secret gestapo) whose
activities include suppression of certain information in the press and radio, slanting of
motion pictures, smearing public men who
oppose their designs, and falsifying history.
Even the Scriptures, it would seem, are not
beyond their province. The ADL... is known
to be the secret power behind U.S. and Canadian politics. Their power of purse and press
is such that opposition to their design by any
politician invites political oblivion."
Gostick continues: "It is widely known

And ". .. Allan Bronfman .. / second in command in all the liquor empire ... is listed as
having been a co-chairman and the directing
head in the Aid-to-Russia campaign in 1943."
In  his  paper,   Gostick  supports  Lord
Beaverbrook's demand that Britain withdraw
from the UN and writes: "The UN is little
more than an instrument serving the enemies
of Britain, the enemies of the U.S., and the
enemies of the West—with the West footing
the bill." Continuing his anti-UN slant by attacks on External Affairs Minister Lester
Pearson, Gostick reveals that ". .. the Bronfman liquor empire was a heavy financial pillar
of the Liberal Party in Canada, and had
more than a little to do with the rise of Mr.
Lester Pearson to his present position." Commenting on the British Guiana situation, thc
directed by an American Jewess, Janet Rosen-
berg, a former student of Columbia University, married to an East-Indian dentist by the
name of Cheddi Jagen."
Canada hasn't got a McCarthy. Tory
chieftain George Drew loomed briefly as a
possible applicant for the position of The
Canadian Red-Hunter during the federal
election campaign, but he soon banished fears
of this, leaving Canadians with a distinct
feeling of relief.
At least, we hope they were relieved. We
like to think that, though a Canadian McCarthy might possibly appear, Canadians
would not give him enough support to allow
him to flourish.
The fact that Americans allow such a
crippling political opportunist to retain national popularity is one of the chief reasons
for the world's present dislike of the U.S. No
one blames America for producing a man
like McCarthy, but for the country to maintain him is inexcusable.
It is unfortunate that a glory-seeking
quack like Gostick uses an anti-communist
mask to disguise his vicious anti-semitic and
isolationist views. It is doubly unfortunate
that people who sincerely wish to combat
communism are tricked into supporting him.

as low-heeled shoes with semi-formal attire.

trend to the fashion recession of the 1920's. And

More Booze at U BC
... Culture at U of T
(Jerry Brown, a student at the University of Toronto last
year, is now attending UBC. Here are his impressions as he
compares the two schools—Ed.)
The University of Toronto is a big sprawling postage stamp
in the middle of an interesting yet stifling city.
It's   called   the   "street-car''♦—*	
university and it well deierves     iiaji     px     ,•#•
the name.'Its campus consists     U^\*     IxdlillOS

among a strange conglomera-    |^L- mm\+, m\     CJ
tlon of ancient Norman archi-    f fly 5l€df     CO.
tecture and stark modern lines.
Because of its age, U of T
has had more time to accumulate needed buildings and in
that respect they outdistance
UBC by a great margin. However, U of T attains a ludicrous
aspect sometimes when some
new modern building pops up
in some strange corner nestling beside an old Gothic arch.
Drinking at UBC is more
flagrant than at U of T. Both
Institutions have regulations
barring consumption of alcohol (except for Anglican Trinity College at the U of T) on
the campus.
At a dance comparable to the
Homecoming dance held here,.
there would be little if any
drinking at the actual location
of the dance at U of T if the
dance was held on the campus.
Students drink as much there
as here, but at the U of T one
need not worry about kicking
empty mlckeys onto the dance
floor when walking between
One reason for this may be
that there are three liquor outlets, one pub, two posh cocktail bars, just across the street
on the north side of the university.
There, students have a
chance to meet students and
faculty members over a quick
ale (eastern style) after that
one o'clock class. However, if
any drinking occured such as
was shown here at the Homecoming dance, several heads
would roll off in all directions.
Educationlly, U of T ranks
over UBC in most ways. The
gap is quickly closing, nevertheless and these words may
have to be retracted in the near
future. Because of the senior-
matric entrance requirement
at U of T, the students are that
much older and seem to be a
little more serious in their pursuit of knowledge. But the
failure rate in the first year
* of most courses does a lot to
weed out those who are in for
Perhaps the one thing of
which UBC can be most proud
is their Student Council set-up.
Those who complain here need
only go to Toronto to see how
lucky they are. The Alma

control over student life tha:.
U of T's SAC can hope to hav..

Fed Up
Editor, Ubyssey:
Public relations play a vital
role in the life of any University .Our Engineering students obviously do not care for
public relations. The rest of us
are thoroughly fed up with their
dormitory raids, strip-tease
smokers, ripped theatre curtains
and, finally, a drunken brawl
which resulted in police arrest.
Let us suggest, therefore, one
solution to the problem: namely that the Board of Governors
obliterate all B.A.Sc. degrees
for the next four years. This
would be somewhat drastic, but
it would cure the Redshirts of
their stupid antics once and for
all. EUS promises for the future
mean absolutely nothing. The
bad boys and their irate parents
would howl, but the Registrar
could simply point to the facts.
One further advantage: the
Engineering staff would have
a chance to repair and augment
damaged laboratory equipment,
and give their courses a much
needed revision.

Thunderbird Hoopsters Get First Trial
Saturday When They Meet Eilers In Gym
JV's Battle   Leafs
In   Prelim  Fixture
Two questions that are in the minds of all basketball enthusiasts—just how good are the JV's and—can Geoff Cra'g
hold record-breaking Bob Pickel down, should be answered
this Saturday night at the UBC gym when the JV's play last
year's championship Cloverleaf club at 7:30 and the Thunderbirds meet the powerful Eiler squad at 9:00.
...    .___._   .. ...             --■$    Several important factors give
| Long John Forsyth's Eilers the
edge in Saturday night's feature
No Overtime
As Birds Win
Hockey Game
After knocking on the door ln
their first two games of the
season the 'Birds finally entered
Wednesday night when they beat
Chuck  Millman's  Forum crew
The 'Birds scored in the first
23 seconds of the game and were
never headed after that. It took
them just ? seconds longer "to
score in the second period and at
the end of the period they held
a 4-3 lead.
*r        n* V
The Forum six tied the game
up 4-4 early in the third frame
but the 'Birds were determined
not to play another fateful overtime period and wrapped the
game up with three fast goals
in the last ten minutes.
McCulloch continued to stand
out for the 'Birds as he score'd
four goals for the second time
this season. Bryan Leppard got
two goals and Howie Thomas
continued to play good goal for
the squad.
*        v T V
Dick Mitchell has planned a
big hockey jamboree for Monday night. For the 50c admission
at Kerrlsdale Arena you will not
only be able to see the 'Birds
play the Kerries at 8:30 but you
will also be able to skate for an
hour and a half after the game.
So plan to get some free skating
in on Monday night plus cheering the Varsity hockey team on,
Their biggest edge comes in
manpower. 'Bird coach Jack
Pomfret will only be able to
dress seven men for the game.
Bob Bone, one of the best players
that Jack has this year, ?s out
of action for at least two weeks
with water on the knee.
Danny Zaharko will move up
from his guard slot to take Bob's
place. The 'Birds will also feel
the loss of Ernie Nyhaug and Buz
Hudson who are still playing
Another advantage that Eilers have is that they have already
played three games this year—
all of which they won handily.
The 'Birds, however, will be playing their initial game on Saturday night and it may take them
a while to get untracked.
One thing is certain—two of
the best centres irr Canaca, Geoff
Craig and Bob Pickel, will be
opposing each other and the bat*
tie of the backboards and elbows
will be the highlight of the game.
The game between the JV's
and Cloverleafs should bo every
bit as exciting as the 'Bird-Eiler
Dick Penn's squad has not
been defeated yet this year and
Ithe one loss that Ron Weber's
fCloverleafs have suffered has
been.at the hands of Eilers. Saturday night's game will go a long
way in determining just how
good the JV's are.
UBC's red hot Junior Varsity basketball squad racked
up their second straight win ip the city senior "A" loop
when they clipped Arctic Club 40-119 Thursday night at
Lord Byng gym.
Dick Penn's Javees are now tied for first slot in the
league with Eilers.   Both teams are undefeated.
Jaycees led all tho way last night, 24-22 al the half and
pulled away in the last 20 minutes for (heir seven point win.

AT STAKE SATURDAY when UBC Varsity crew
take on Oregon State in annual meet at Corvallis, Oregon,
will be Egg Cup Trophy and much worn egg. The Cup is
held by Captain Glen Smith while rowers Hank Matheson
and Tom Toynbee look on. Jay-Vee crew will also participate in Oregon Homecoming event.

At six this morning, the west's dark hour of milkmen and
Pub parties, twenty UBC rowers pulled out for Corvallis, Ore-
gon, where they will defend their Egg Cup against Oregon
Birds  Battle Whitworth
In 1953  Football Finale
Last chance for the Evergreen Conference win will come;
for the Thunderbirds Saturday when they meet Whitworth ''-
Pirates in Spokane in their final game of the season. I
The Pirates are at present sharing the league lead with CPS
and Eastern as a result of CPS'
7-6 win over them last Saturday.
The 'Birds are injury-plagued
for this, the last game of the
season, but will be missing only
one player, Jerry Nestman.
Quarterback Gerry Stewart is
flying to Spokane Saturday
morning and, if possible, will return in the evening. Stewart, a
med student, has an important
exam Monday morning.
Billy Stuart, Jim Boulding and
Carl Saarinen are all on the
minor injury list and will be
used sparingly.
Four players will be playing
their last game for UBC Saturday. They are: Ralph Martinson;
"Bulgy" Bill Boulding; Bill
Stuart and Fullback John Hudson.
Award Won
By Pete Harris
UBC's one-man track team,
Pete Harris, was awarded the
Fred Tees Memorial Trophy
Thursday by the Amateur Athletic Union of Canada.
The award, given annually to
the outstanding track and field
athlete at Canadian universities
was given to Harris for his record breaking achievements since
coming to UBC from his native
Last summer Harris broke the
outstanding track and field
record for the mile, running it
in 4:20.9, at Cheney, Wash.,
while running for UBC in the
Evergreen  Conference meet.
State College.
OSC has produced some notable crews in its day. Coached
by Carl Grilyka, the Oregonites
have given the famed California
Bears several close races . . . but
so have the 'Birds.
The crews will race Saturday
morning on the Williamelle
River. The course is rated as a
tough one because it is upstream and takes a slight bend;
conditions which are unfamiliar
to a salt-water crew.
The Egg Cup itself is truly a
work of art. A battered scotch-
taped egs sits in an old egg-cup
which in turn is supported by a
block of fire-wood. The team
which wins the ctip must attach
n plaque, costing no more than
ten cents, a rule entirely in accordance witli thc 'Birds budget.
I.i its two years of existence it
lias only been won by Oregon
Because it is Ilome-Coming
Week at Oregon State, the Yanks
will no doubt show the Canadians a rare time.
Come spring. Varsity will be
making the long-awaited trek to
Washington where they will
tangle oars with Ky Ebright's
powerful Huskies.
May will see the annual Inter-
Collegiate spring championships
in California, which will probably feature such crews as Navy,
and Wisconsin. These events,
however, are preliminaries; the
main bout will take place this
summer, when, we hope, a UBC
crew will represent Canada in
the British Empire Games.
