B.C. Electric
That the fight for progress in British Columbia today is the same
thing as the fight against the B. C.
Electric was the opinion expressed
yesterday by John Stanton, Vancou-
aer barrister. Mr. Stanton addressed approximately 150 students in a
meeting in Arts 100 sponsored by the
Social Problems club,
British Columbia's power resources,
Mr. Stanton claimed, were so neglected
that when during the war Vancouver
needed all the energy it could get,
i the B. C. Electric had to make arrangements to impart power from the
government-owned Bonneville project in the United States.
"The   sinister   aspect   of   this,''   he
said,  "is the  fact  that  the temporary
lines   arc   now   being   made   permanent."
He said that the reason for the
company's non-development of the
province's resources "is to be found
in the company's basic policy,"
Mr. Stanton pointed out that only
two of the 12 directors of the B. C.
Power Corporation (the parent company of the B.C E.) are British Columbia men. The others, he asserted,
are interested primarily in keeping
Canada's industrial development in
the cast.
"They are interested in a constant
and high rate of profit", he continued,
and he went on to show how they
had succeded in doing this. He
quoted figures showing that in a
nine year period up to 1944, tire B.C.
Llectric averaged $6.3 million per annum, which represented a 55-percent
profit on gross revenue,
He    said    that   the   B.C.    Electee's

Problems of eligibility may well throw a monkey wrench
into the works of the proposed Victoria Invasion schedule
for next weekend. Unless action is taken immediately, the
teams that were intended to carry the Blue and Gold colors
to the Island capitol for the first invasion since pre-war days
may never get as far as Pier C, much less the battlegrounds
of Victoria.
 €>   It wa.s announced yesterday by Bill
McKay,   Chairman   of   the  Eligibility
ISS Objective
Still Elusive
Contributions for International Student   Service   are   still   being   made
but the objective of $8000.00 still remains a "mysterious something," according to Philip Evans, Sophomore
member of the Council and chairman
of the ISS committee on the campus.
Figures released by Evans yesterday
place the latest total at $847.11. The
committee has received two cheques
for §50.00 from A. Sanders and Jeffrey Fox, and a cheque for ?25.00 from
Branch 72 of the Canadian Legion at
University of B'.C.
Some ration coupons have also been
received which break down into four
separate totals: meat coupons, 802;
meat tokens, 297; butter joupons, 41;
and sugar coupons, 62.
Evans emphasised that donations
are still being received at the AMS
office and anything will be appreciated.

anadian Campus
At; any niilceisity convocation or
general assembly a common phrase
used to exhaustion by guest,
speakers and valccliclorians when
speaking of university students
i.s "eiti/en.s of tomorrow". During
our college years it i.s believed
that we form many of the social
habits and group characteristics
which will mark our generation
of 'citizens'  in postgraduate years.
Yet when it comes to voting, one
of the most fundamental ways a
student can show his interest in
and enthusiasm for the part he
plays in the life of his university,
there is n general attitude of disinterest among students in many
of  our  universities.
Apathetic is a word found frequently to describe the lack of
.student participation in campus
elections. Fifty to fifty-five per
cent is the average section of the
student body to take advantage of
tho privilege of electing student-
g. vernmout officials. Campus elections are reportedly not bother-
e 1   by   tho  existence   of   party   nia-
e'iine.s or pressure blocks; they
are not even, bothered by large
number.-: of ballots to be counted.
Difference in the form of student-,go\ ernnient and method of
representation make a comparative
survey of .'-turlent voting difficult,
but the characteristic of apathy
seems applicable on many campuses. At the University erf Toronto
voting i.s leported to be, on the
whole, quiet, with the interest
varying in the different faculties.
In the faculty of Engineering,
elections are made gala events
with a dinner, the voting, and then
a mass attendance of the engineers
al a downtown burlesque theatre
nairking the ocassion. Little apathy-
is apparent in this faculty's voting.
From Mount Allison came tne
only report, of lOOY participation
on tho part of students in campus
elections. Here "enthusiastic" was
used to describe the voters' inter-

Acadia, announced that although

Committee, that the only team which
was eligible to make the trip was the
McKechnie Cup rugger squad. This
is the only team of those wishing
to go to the Island that has had its
eligibility lists go through the regist-
lar'.s office this term,
The only other athletic team on the
campus to comply with the regulations
regarding eligibility lists is the
Women's Senior B Basketball squad.
In a statement to the Ubyssey yesterday, McKay said that all eligibility
forms of athletic clubs on the campus
must, be in his hands by Monday at
This does not mean only the teams
that are taking part in the Invasion.
It should be made clear that all
team.s representing the University
must comply with the regulations
laid down in the Eligibility Code. The
penalty 1'cr not obeying these rules
would mean that the team will not
be able to compete in athletic activities for the rest of the year.
Several reasons were given for
this action, Stated McKay, "Letters
were sent on January 9 to presidents
of the different organizations requesting the managers of the different
teams, clubs and organizations to
submit lists to. the Eligibility Committee as soon as  possible."
McKay realized that since the
exam results came out. later than
usual, lists could not be submitted
to meet the deadline stated in the
Eligibility Code.
Pestering the various heads of
MAD, WAA and LSE to submit lists
started in February. The only results have come from the two aforementioned teams, the Player's Club
and the Musical Society.
As Mckay put it. "Tne purpose
of the eligibility ruling Y to prevent
students from continuing extra-curricular activities when by doing so they
are in danger of failing. If the eligibility rulings are not immediately
enforced, their purpose will be defeated because there is not much time
left in this term, and it is , quite
1 es.sible that some students who are
ire' .'ible, but who have been playing
s; .its because m (T-;ibd;!y lists were
'■I'Yiutted,   may   fail.

At Mi Gill as at Toronto, voting
is quiet, and here the percentage
of voters i.s low. Although elections
are often keenly contested and
much made of student government,
actual figures show student-interest apathetic where voting is concerned. Western University has
noted a falling off in vote-participation and plans a new system of

Greer, in his address, pointed to
the socialist belief that depressions
are man-made and not inevitable. "If
you beli.vc that depressions are inevitable you might as well give credence to be the theory that they are
caused by sun-spots," he said.
Replacement of the present system
based on self-aggrandizement with
a system whereby the people work
for the common good, was called for
by  Greer.

Sooner or later they'll be coming around    students attending lectures in the line of huts
to collect a corpse or an injured person somewhere on the roads within the university
grounds if something isn't done to cut down
the speed rate indulged in by some of the
campus drivei'S.
Now that spring seems to be here at last
and  the roads  are  in  better shape  for  fast
driving, the roads leading to and from the main
mall   are   getting   to   be    rather   dangerous
thoroughfares for the pedestrians who must
of necessity use them for getting from lecture
to lecture.
The  two  most dangerous   roads  are  those
along that mall and one of these mornings
at 8:30 a late motorist and a late pedestrian
are going to collide, with unfortunate results.
Signs have always plainly marked the main
mall with a fifteen mile per hour limit and
the regulation has been enforced fairly rigidly.
Similar markings and similar enforcement
should be the order of the day for the other
roads which are now carrying almost equally
heavy traffic.
It can hardly be expected that students
can be forced to cross roads at specially marked
places, so inasmuch as between-lectures traffic
is likely to remain frantic and haphazard there
leading from the mall to Brock Hall and the should be greater control over the few care-
west mall running past the applied science less drivers who would turn the university
building. The latter road has to be crossed by     into  a  speedway.

Shades of Sir John A. Macdonald, by bizarre
little biblioklepts.   What  will  they  do  next0
Well, kiddies, this is what comes of the
yearning   to   be   big-time,   to   be   Manhattan,     your day!  Little good will it do you to cry
in the frothy wake of Noel Coward and "Cocktails for two".  (No relation, pet.)
Now we see the Ontario Legislature, a.s
Master of the Hunt, leading the pack (and a
most respectable pack it is) in full hue and
cry after the miserable hotel bedroom drinker.
Flogged from the pulpit, excoriated by the
press, lambasted by women's, civic, and youth
organizations, the bewildered mattress toper
is being hemmed in by as nice an array of
bared fangs as we have seen in many a long
You bottle-toting hotel-bedroom drinker,
you sink of iniquity amongst men, you seducer behind closed transoms, you slough,
you morass of abandoned hope, you have had
that there should be some expression
of opinion from the silent majority.
First, as Cliff Greer remarked, "It i.s
valuable to receive such frank statements—when so few Communists will
admit they believe in violent revolution." Many today, follow a creed
without full realization of the method
necessary to put it into effect. Where
Fascism is in control only violent
revolution can bring social justice,
says Mr. Robeson and the Left tells
us that it IS here, This opinion no
doubt gives those who ( believe it
true, the same moral sanction as the
Palestine terrorists have in combatting the fascist Labour Govt. 'Fascist'
is such a handy label,
Does the fact that many of Mr, R/s
race have little political freedom in
the south provide- a logical reason
for depriving the remaining 90% of
it in order to make all politically
equal? It sounds rather like cutting
off the patient's head to save his body
from a spreading disease, instead of
curing it. Dr. Basil Mathews, a student of Booker T. Washington, the
fe.mous Negro educator, explains that;
"The clash of races is not only between white and colored, but between
many divisions within each color."
Ho believes that the solution is
more difficult than just the 'sudden
and complete opening up of freedom
to everyone.' To some, the simple expedient of w.iving one bnnner as a
cure-all, appeals. How often has
revolution shown that might is right
only as long a.s the coercive power
responsible government, one which
demands democratic rights but refuses to perform the duties which the
exercise of those privileges requires,
viz: the duty to relinquish control if
they are rejected by a majority.
Remember, that once in' power, a
change can only be effected then
by further violence. Advocates of
this method must be prepared not
only for one, but for TWO revolutions.
Another interesting fallacy is often
taken for granted. We are told,
usually by those who called it an
'Imperialistic' war until officially
briefed by the Soviet entry in 1941,
that we fought this last war against
Fascism. I am sure that if the participants analyse their reasons, they
will agree that we fought against
DICTATORSHIP and then because
it was an aggressive dictatorship,
which directly threatened our freedom. Had Germany honoured her
pact with the Soviet Union, we might
also have been fighting a Communist
dictatorship, which Mr. Robeson,
who ought to know, admits to be
■ n control there. Then our interests
would have been clear and we would
have required no urging to 'play
along'with 'Britain, to use Mr. Washerman's expression. This alliance did
leave communists in Allied countries
temporarily with a defence for Soviet
policy and one wonders, if the treaty
had not been broken, whether their
stand, would have been another reversal to Ihe 'pre-invasion of Russia'
How  many  of  us  with  any sort of
democratic    heritage   are    willing   to

The Seventh Vial
Apart from Nature's usual Spring
Offensive, our university playing
fields have been the scene of a big
battle. Although it has had no physical casualties and ha.; been carried
on through sporadic outbreaks in
prii'.i. the light lies nevertheless been
a  crucial one.
The reference is. of course, to the
current Medical Muddle, and the
.spirited drive for a medical faculty
at   UBC   being   conducted   at   UBC.
So many red herrings have been
ti ssed about since the pre-meds opened, their campaign for education in
the Spring of 1946, that the whole
thing would make a .substantial fish
The very latest fish was stirred
into the pot by our Provincial Minister of Education, Dr. George M. Weir,
when he suggested that the new
medical college be established in
Fairview, practically on the spot
where UBC was located before the
students   decided   that     they     didn't
out to Point Grey in 1922.
Not that there is any sentimental
objection to the Fairview site. Nor
are we hinting that if the medical
school and the medical centre and
the Normal School were all confined
to tho three-acre Normal School
grounds, that in a very, very short
time they would outgrow the "three
or four large huts" so casually mentioned by Dr. Weir, That is, if the
medical centre i.s going to develop
as il is hoped it will. (Which i.s what
the 'PMUS spokesman' probably
meant when lie suggested that the
(Yirn be dragged back to Fairview
No. What we object to is the Weir
conviction that the Vancouver General Hospital is the id;al training-
ground for medical students. Eight
top-notch American medical men
paid a visit to our city last fall, to
look into the question. Their unbiased report, which apparently Dr.
Weir never heard of, condemned the
VGH as completely inadequate for
such a purpose.   Why doesn't someone
have enough elbow-room and trekked | tell   Dr.   Weir   the  facts,
to represent the Chanel No, 5, the Daimler
and the Kentucky Derby of the world of
booze. It is, as every little lady behind the
counters of the 5 & 10 Is desperately aware,

Letters To The Editor
Dear Sir:
A week has past since you, Mr.
James scared me into a gopher hole;
now at last I have gained courage to
crawl out and answer you. I still can
not realize why myself, among others,
are called "entertainment czars"; perhaps it is because some of us receive
$60 per month as a result of entertaining Nazis. However, I assure you, Mr.
James, that many of us who organize
various clubs give much of our own
time and money merely for the pleasure of knowing that those who
attended our clubs are getiiig the best
we can give them.
As for being wicked, I may say,
Mr. James, that I attend a church
that is tolerant enough to allow culture
to be propagated, and am not a pagan
as you infer.
In conclusion, Mr. James, please realize that club organizers are merely
normal human beings.
Symphonic  Club
■To whom it may concern:
My drafting set has been taken from
desk 51 in Applied Science 208.
I don't like to get down on my
knees to anybody, but fellow, I need
that set and need it badly. I am
married, have two children, and am
trying to attend University on the
government allowances, and that's not
easy. I just haven't the eighteen dollars
to buy a new drafting set.
All the instruments have the knobs
painted red, my name is in india-ink
on the felt and my address and phone
number are on a sticker inside.
Please phone, mail it to me, or just
leave it at the AMS Office. There will
be no questions asked—all I 'ivant is
my drafting set.
Dear   Sir:
In my recent letter to The Ubyssey
I wished to suggest that the existence
of Spanish fascism depended on a
continued reactionary foreign policy
on the part of tha U.S. Unfortunately the printer garbled the word
"Franco" and my point was lost.
I was in no way defending the Russian system. Indeed I consider Com-
\ munism as it is at present an extremely bad thing. But does this
hatred of totalitarianism and regimentation cause me to exult over the
virtues of capitalism? The latter has
bequeathed to us only a fluctuating
economy and a series of disastrous
wars. Glorification of individuality
and freedom has led to monopoly and
injustice. As I see it, we can combine the virtues of the two systems
-—the planning that has proved so
successful in the USSR and the personal freedom which we have here in
Canada. Our solution would seem
to lie in a social system such as is
exemplified by Sweden, New Zealand
and  our  own  Saskatchewan.

Course Mapped
In Architecture
Curriculum for the degree course
in Architecture, commenced last year,
has now been approved by the Senate and the Board of Governors, according to an announcement from
the President's office yesterday. The
course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Architecture and requires five
years' study after entering the Faculty of Applied Science.
Five years after Senior Matriculation is the standard length of
courses in Architecture at all leading
schools in England, Canada and the
United States. Basic training in
mathematical, physical and architectural principles is provided in the
first three years of the course, while
the last two years are devoted to
studies and research of a more professional  character.
The course in Architecture also
provides a basis for post-graduate
work in elated fields such as Town
and Community Planning, Industrial
Design   and  Prefabrication.
General requirements for admission to the course are similar to prerequisites to other Engineering
courses. However, students are advised to take French 101 as a reading
knowledge of French is necessary.
Yets Negotiate
On Housing Units
Two Vancouver veterans are negotiating to obtain 1600 wartime housing units from the State of Washington to sell for $1500.00 each in
Vancouver, announced Don Lanskail,
publicity director of Branch 72 of the
Legion, yesterday.
The huts are surplus to American
requirements and cannot b» moved
to another state because of transport
regulations,   he  said.
John MacKenzie, Legion housing
director, emphasizes the plan is not
a Legion or University housing
scheme but he asks interested parties
to write to Box 1347, Daily Province
so that an idea will be obtained of
how many units are needed,
The original cost of the units was
$3200.00 fully equiped with modern conveniences, said Lanskail,
They are of temporary wartime construction but have hardwood floors,
he   revealed.

Inter A's Make
Hoopla Finals
Varsity Inter A's battkd their way
into the finals of the V & D Basketball
League, when they downed Meralomas Thursday night at King Ed
Gym, by a 42-31 count.
In a rough and tumble fracas, that
really was a fracas, the collet" cagers
walked over Meralomas in their second game of the semis, and assured
themselves of playoff position. Also
assuring Varsity of a none-tco-ensy
final series, Arrows soundly did in
Tookes in the third game of their
semi series, to the tune of a 37-21
Varsity started off slowly as usual,
and the 'Loma quintet took full advantage of this little quirk, Harry
Hastings kept 'Lomas in the game,
and ran in a quick six points before
Varsity had a chance to counter.
Once  the Blue &  Gold  mob commenced to perambulate however, they
proceeded   to   walk   away   with   the
ball game.
When the half-time whistle sounded, Varsity walked of! the hardwood
courts with a 3 point lead tucked
under their belts.
Starting the second half with a
new string, coach Pomfret was soon
forced to substitute his whole first
string, before these disorganized
studes managed to take the game.
With the fust string back on the
floor, the students started to percolate in a big way, running up a ten
point lead which they never relinquished.

have no effect on the final outcome.
If the Birds drop this afternoon's contest they still have another chance
at the silverware next week when
they meet Victoria Crimson Tide in
the Island city.
Big power of the Blue and Gold,
and chief threat to the Leos, this
afternoon will be the three quarter
line, which will see Bud Spiers, in
his second Bird game of the year,
holding down the five eighths slot,
Ho will be ably supported in the
line by such stars as Russ Latham,
Don Nesbit, Doug Reid, and a fresh
addition to the McKechnie cup games,
speedy Jack Armour.
Johnny Wheeler will as usual hold
tho all important scrum half position.
The remainder of the backfield will
be made up by Bill Dunbar, who more
than proved himself master of the
position in last weeks game with
Victoria, and by Hilary Wotherspoon
in reserve.
Captain of the squad, Barry Morris,
will be in charge of the fast breaking
forward line, which will include
Harvey Allen, Al Carlyle, Marshall
Smith, Hart Crosby, Geoff Corry,
Keith MacDonald and Barney Curby.
To win today, Haines' squad is
banking on the same tactics that ran
up 34 points in the first game. Speed,
team-work and the good condition
of the players is expected to be the
undoing of Art Dodd's Lions, when
the Birds take the field at Stanley
Whether or not they win this afternoon, Thunderbirds will travel to
Victoria next weekend as the main
attraction of the invasion, which will
see fsur UBC teams and the Majorettes in action.

Pugilists  Tough
In Eliminations
If the preliminary fights to the
intramural boxing and wrestling
tournament are any criterion to what
the March 7 tournament itself will
be, the tournament is going to be
quite an affair.
Every afternoon this week, UBC
boxing fans have flocked down to
the hollows beneath the stadium
and every day they have received a
remarkably good boxing show,
The roughest, toughest fight the
stadium ring has seen in its days was
held Thursday afternoon. It was
Jim Bryant up against Dave Treil-
hard. The boys were going at it like
a couple of pistons. Something had
to break. Treilhard was knocked
out in the second round.

Saturday night is the big night for UBC's swim team. Not
to be outdone by their brother Thunderbirds on the maple
courts, the aqua-Birds are swimming tonight in one of the
biggest meets to date against the College of Puget Sound team
at Crystal Pool. *

Tonight's meet with the CPS swimmers has all the promise of being a
close one, right from the opening
gun Few sports can be predicted
as accurately en the basis of past
performances as can swimming, for
individual splash times seldom vary
more than one tenth of a second over
a period of two weeks.
Last time the two aggregations of
aquamen met, UBC went down by a
scant four points. Thus the new meet
will take the iorm of a revenge
contest on  the part i. f the 'Birds,
Number one hope, among tire
Thunderbird swimmers is versatile
Jim Hawthorne, a through-and-through
"swimmer's swimmer" who trains
hard and has results to show for his
Another man to watch will be
smooth and powerful Don Morrison,
UBC's 200-yard sprinter. New to the
ranks of the team is Bob Whitlam, a
sprint swimmer who has boosted
greatly the team's chances of a victory
over tho American visitors. Out of
last Wednesday's practice was one
of the teams trump cards, Hal Brodie.
An injury to his toe had beached him
but it is hoped that Brodie will be
rarin' to go by starting time at 8:00
tonight. Brodie, a freshman on the
campus, has consistently proven himself to be UBC's outstanding sprinter
and his times are expected to be
near-record as he parts the foam in
three   different   50-yard   sprints.
Also on the program for tonight
are three events between UBC's
strong women's team and a women's
team from the YMCA. Their events
will be a 50-yard backstroke, ?.00-yard    them each tint
After last week's twin setbacks in
the form of two tie games, the Varsity soccer team will be out to overcome South Hill's 2-point lead when
they tackle the up-and-coming Vancouver United squ.td this afternoon
at Powell  Street grounds.
On the upper stadium field, UBC's
blue shirts will go against New Westminster Legion in the day's only
campus sport event.
Th; Varsity squad will be understaffed this week with Stu Todd out
of the city for the weekend. Out of
action are Stan Nicol and Dave
Thompson, doubtful starters due to
leg injuries incurred in last weekend's  doubleheader.

In Crucial Contest Tonight
UBC's fighting Thunderbirds continue their two gamy feud with the
Loggers of Puget Sound Ionian m
the locals' most crucial hoop series
to date. Prior to this pair of games,
the first of which wjs played last
night, both teams were tied for top
place in the standings, along with the
Idaho Coyotes and the Linfield Wildcats.
Until last weekend, every hoop
mogul on the coast was giving the
nod to the Idaho Coyotes as Conference winners, for the casaba men
from the land of the spud were
boasting eight, wins with nary a loss.
Then the Coyot;s dropped two road
contests to the Linfield Wildcats at
McMinnville. Oregon and then,
.slightly rattled, journeyed to Salem to
lose a pair of games with the Willa-
m.-ttj  Bearcats.
Three rousing cheers immediately
issued from the ranks of the Thunderbirds. the Wildcats and CPS Loggers, for the three teams tied in second place had little hope of hitting
top spot until the unexpected Idaho
Thus it was that Idaho joined the
ever-growing throng of those with
eight wins and four losses in the
