(The plight of hundreds of political exiles in Europe should be made adequately clear to UBC students in this column written by former AMS president
Grant Livingstone. In his travels in Europe last summer, Livingstone realized
just how little the Nortli American continent is doing to help displaced students. In this column the cotii'iction of one student is made adequately clear.)
President AMS, 1947-48
Last week, just after UBC's splendid plebiscite decision, I
received a letter from one who might possibly benefit from
that decision. He is a Czech; now a refugee because he supported Benes' party and participated in the Prague student
demonstrations of February, 1948.
1   ■><■ ■■'- I met him and some 20 of his fellow
exiles last year in Paris and promised
to try to get them admitted to Canada. Unfortunately the German Scholarship scheme last fall cut across the
bows, of plans for refugee scholarships. I was prevented by ill health
from pressing the matter last spring,
and effort's to have a company sponsor
Mojmir and a few other this summer
as ordinary immigrants fell through.
For three good reasons I'm passing
his letter along: first, I hope some
reader or readers might help me to
help him. The chief requirement is
sponsorship by some person or firm
| able to assure him a year's employment.
Second, this is a clear cut example
cf how your recently voted ISS dollars are needed.
Thjrd, I hope the eloquent simplicity of his appeal will stir the heart
and the conscience of enough who read this to raise some voice against the
Illiberal, heartless, selfish, and utterly un-Christian—and stupid— legislation
which is constricting this wealthy and empty country's immigration policy
to a mere trickle in the face of such desperate need by such worthy people.
Surely Albert Einstein, Jan Bata, Toscannini, surely our own Mario Prizec,
and the host of those not individually great but each giving some and
collectively contributing immensely to their new country their European-
nurtured brains, skills and characters, surely these and the witness of history,
are evidence enough of tho benefits to any country cf a liberal immigration
Certainly Canada can admit thousands more of the wards of the IRO than
we have to dates, and we'll benefit in body, mind and soul by so doing.
To come back to the point, I commend to the heart, the thought and the
conscience of the comfortable reader this brief letter:
Paris 1 of Octobre 1949.
Dear Grant,
I begfyou paedon for writing you without having your answer
for my last letter from this semmer. I still am hardt truing to
get to Canada the situation is not very excellent for me in
France. I can't get a job because I am a forrigner and refugee.
The scolarshie I've got last year was just for one year. Now I
am truing to get seme job untill I'll go to Canada. As I now you
just have to send me the labor contract and I'll get easelly the
visa in Paris. I hope that you understand my position.
I like to start a new existance but in France it's inpossible.
I don't fear any kind of work and I think that I could get a
pritty good job later in Canada. I am still working for the Czek
student organization, we are now about' 300 students in Paris,
All the boys you've met last year in Paris are still here and are
waiting for further emigration. The situation in Czeosovaquia
is turning very  bad  for  the people. They  have been arrested
about 30.000 people in 3 clays—after official report from Prague.
The situation  is going to  bad. The Democrates are doportin
to Siberian and you know what that means. Well, Grant I hope
to hear soon a pcssible about you and please be so kind and
clo somet'hink for me that I could get to Canada.
Sincerelly yours,
The fund now guaranteed to ISS has many calls on it, all worthy. I'd
like to see the maximum possible number cf its beneficiaries return to their
countries to advertise Canada and democracy. I hope ISS will continue to
importune External  Affairs  to  allow  German  students,  and  I   particularly
hope that candidates will be sought from South East Asia where democracy
can be measurably furthered by such a move.
But the vital present need is just the one met by ISS this past year,
namely to bring as many as we can of these IRO students to a permanent
refuge in Canada.

was, that on a capita basis they will
heat Engineers two to one. Arts representative Mary Leiterman, USC,
merely laughed.
Plans are being laid to save the
controversy which occurred last year
when Engineers collected all money,
and were accused of putting funds
from other faculty tins into their own.
This year, each society will be responsible for all funds collected in

U of S President
Presents Brief fo
Royal Commission
Saskatchewan — Nov. 17 —
(CUP) — Briefs from President W. P. Thompson of the
University of Saskatchewan
and from three campus organizations were presented recently to the Royal Commission on National Development
in the Arts, Letters and Sciences.
President Thompson's brief concerned annual grants from federal funds.
A second brief from Professor E. M.
Jones for tho Western Stage Society
recommended that the Dominion gov- j
eminent assume an active interest
and responsibility in the development ;
of the Canadian Theatre througn Vhe
medium of loan funds CCUF (Cana- ;
dian Commonwealth University Federation) suggests the establishment
of a National Arts Board to assist in
fhe development of Canadian culture.
The last brief was presented by ISS
(International Student Service) and
requested federal aid in various student  exchange  scholarships.
The annual federal grants asked for
in President Thompson's brief should
not be tied to scholarships or particular research projects. An administrative body similar to the British University Grants Committee would distribute the funds in consideration of
the overall needs of the universities.
The funds would go to the establishment of grants in aid of non-scientific
research, graduate scholarships in humanities and social studies, undergraduate scholarships and scholarships
i'o students from other countries.
Jewish Fraternity
Installed at UBC
Final revision of the act which
would allow MAD to check up on the
activities of students playing on Non-
university sport teams was passed
Wednesday  at the MAD meeting.
Act gives MAD power to recommend
that the student council impose a
fine on delinquent athletes who do
not conform to the regulation, that
is, who do not write MAD for permission to play outside the university.
MAD will notify these athletes that
they will have the fine imposed upon
them, and then AMS will carry out
measure,  imposing the fine.
Regulation of requiring university
athletes to play on UBC teams instead of outside groups, is not new
at this university.
Regulation has been in effect almost
since the university has been in existence.
MAD, this year taking the bull by
the horns, has sought to make something definite come out of the act.
Athletic Directorate is now trying
to keep this regulation enforced, in
the hope of improving athletics in
the  university.
MAD feels justified in making this
stand, having written to universities
across Canada and some in the
United States, in order to see what
action is taken in regard lo athletes
playing for outside teams.
Every college in Canada has a
ruling similar to that at UBC, compelling students to play for the university or receiving permission from
proper authority to play off the campus.
In view of the fact that' the present
regulation that is causing such a
controversy on this campus has been
in effect for many years, MAD feels
justified in trying to enforce it'.
School calendar has carried the
regulation as a part of the AMS
Constitution in the past, and again
this year.
In effect, when new students sign
themselves into the university and
become a part of the Alma Mater
Society, they automatically have
signed to play for the university in
Under this light,  they must obtain
written   release  from   the  MAD,   the
J university   group   in   charge   of   athletics,   under  the  sponsorship  of   the

Get Rid Of Fire Traps!
The Ubyssey last year warned that the
use of army huts for lecture rooms and
laboratories was a dangerous thing.
Monday night the Law library nearly
went up in smoke. The occurrence only
served to emphasize the basic fallacy of
using army structures for educational purposes.
Last year, the home economies huts,
Orchard huts, and the Totem snack bar-
burned down. With them went thousands of
dollars worth of valuable equipment, and in
some cases,  irreplaceable  notes and books.
The time has come for the provincial
government to take the proverbial bull by the
horns and appropriate enough money to build
adequate facilities for such faculties as law
and medicine,
The law faculty,  in particular,  housed
in an army fire trap, is direly in need of
a modern, fireproof building which will be
adequate enough to include a library and
lecture rooms.
The faculty of medicine, to be completely
adequate, should be housed in a structure
that will allow for expansion in the future
and yet be large enough for the present
University builders, if they are planning
to build more huts of the type now used,
should reconsider. No university can con-
' centrate properly on the job at hand, if the
fear that thc work may be wiped out in one
night is constantly hanging over its head.
When the war ended, UBC pledged itself
to accept all students. The time has come
for the provincial government to match this
forlhrightness with a little courage of their
Kelp For Our Athletes
Students currently involved in angry
controversy over the status of university-
athletes on downtown teams might well be
devoting their attention to the broader field
of BC athletics generally.
The fact that promising athletes whose
presence would certainly benefit UBC teams
are playing fou outside clubs i.s an indication
of a fundamental weakness in the athletic
setup. While the state of affairs is regrettable
it is not  unusual  at  Canadian   universities.
The reason behind the sorry lack of
school spirit especially in Western Canada
is what those interested in the purely cultural aspects of education call "athletic de-

known. But there are few at UBC even in

unfair to demand undergraduate participation.

Nice Old Lady, Distrustful Of

his big fat chair, lighting a big fat cigar
with a big fat fifty-dollar bill. The teller is

idly watching two accountants who are
tossing pennies against the vault door, when
a nice old lacly enters.

Mardi Gras
Frenzied Studying
As Scare Arrives
Drizzles, sniffles, and book fever are the pervading themes
on the campus lately. The library is bulging and the Caf
steaming only at noon instead of all clay, now that the Christmas Scare has arrived. Even the Brock addicts are limited
to a few poker players.
Eaton's is having another smashing 1
fashion show in their Marine Room I
this Saturday. These affairs ure real
ly delightfully informal, and it's
hoped everyone will go down and
enjoy the delicious tea that will bc
served and watch their friends model
the newest in ski clothes.
Active ski suits as well as after-
ski clothes will be modelled by nine
campus coeds. They are Jay Davies,
Polly Lane, Nan Hardie, Gretehen
Mathers, Willa McKinnon, Joan Barton, Peggy McGregor, Jo Castillou and
Mikki  McLennan.
Perennial slacks and sweater favorite^ and smart after-ski skirts for
lcerte, chalet, and holiday resort
wear are among the wonderful features of tlie show. It starts at 3 p.m.
'Round 'bout this time every year,
Christmas exams, Christmas presents
and Christmas clothes come to mind.
Therd was a time when we wrote
letters to Santa Claris. Now we find
there are still more subtler ways to
hint what we'd like for hristrras. With
just this thought in mind, Cathie, myself and the spirit of St. Nick went
shopping for a Christmas "dream
dress." Now one of us was exactly sure
just what constituted a "dream dress"
but we knew that somehow, somewhere, there would bc   ne.
As we glanced through the gaily
decorated stores we came across somi
stunning metallic-striped taffetas; sophisticated crepes; rich brocades and
slinky satins. But somehow, none of
these were "it."
All at once, tucked away in the
corner of a tiny shop, we saw our
dress. One glance and .we hurried
into the shop,
Taking it gingerly from thc display
case, the saleslady assured us in her
very best Parisian French, "Eet is trc;
bonne;" Then to Cathie, "Mademoiselle eet i.s your gown." And she slipped
it over Cathie's head and the linos i
fell into place. I realized that this wa.s
Cathie's  "dream dress!"
Made of a rich satin brocade, the
soft sea-foam green was a background
for a slightly softer tone of green
rose petals. A low, off-the-shoulder
neckline came to a dramatic dip at
the peak of the snug-fitting bodice.
A basque waistline let fall the full
flowing skirt. Beneath the bouffant
skirt, a real old-fashioned hoop, and a
snow-white ruffled petticoat! At the
hem, two contrasting bows, of lace-
brocade, caught up the skirt allowing
-the taffeta ruffles of thc petticoat to
peak out.
Truly, Cathie was a dream herself!
And as dreams go, we know that old
Santa will be making one little miss
very happy on Christmas morn, if on
the tree, she finds her "dream dress"
And  that's  how dreams come  true!
and   these   shows   are   perfect   as   a
Saturday   afternoop   interlude.
Mardi Gras preparations are being
made and it is expected that the
committees will bc chosen6 within the
next two weeks. Dancers can start
practising their high kicks for the
tryouts that will be held next Thursday noon. The place will be announced in Tuesday's Ubyssey,
WUS and USC are sponsoring a
tea dance this afternoon in th.; Brock
Lounge. It will start at 3; 30 and is
free  to  all corners.
Christmas plays, initiations and Club
parties are all faking place before
die last frenzy of study hit,1; the
UBC populace. Even the Charity s
of   the  Caf  aro  getting  worried.
Tlie campus Greek Letter Societies
elected Loni Francis and Bob Amiable as their Mardi Gras Co-chairmen
at a mass meeting Wednesday noon in
Applied Science  100.
Representatives from all fraternities
and sororities were present to nominate and elect co-chairmen for the
Mardi Gras.
A motion that there be secret balloting was defeated after some discussion on the grounds that preparations had not been made for secret
ballots, and confusion would result
from such action. As a result of one
motion, there will probably be secret
balloting next  year.
The committee has decided on the
theme of South Pacific, from the
Broadway musical, to be used this
year, The Mardi Gras will bc held on
January 19 and 20.
Greeks to Pick Up

proofs and turn them in right away.

Greek section, but it is cssntial
that the pictures be ready right
Something different in the way of University dances,

Brock Lounge.
Club Social Convenor, Franck Miginley, told The
Ubyssey today that girls are advised to "grab a man and
attend this novelty hop."

'Birds Look For Revenge
On Visiting Hc
Seattle University
Features Toll Team
When coach Al Brightman's
Seattle University Chieftains
take the floor against the UBC
Thunderbirds tonight at 8:30,
the Birds will be out for blood.
in three out of four contests with
the Seattle group last year, the Birds
went down to defeat. This year the
Pomfretmen will be out to avenge
that   record.
But' things will not be easy. Eight
returning lettermen are on the Chieftain roster this year.
Among them are the smooth shooting Elmer Speidel who counted for
so many points against the Birds
last year, teamed with Bob Hind-
quist at guard, and also or.«« of the
smoothest' centres playing in the
northwest,   big Earl   Spangler.
The first string of the Chieftains
has a height average of over six foot
three. In fact only two men of the
fourteen coming to UBC for the game
are under six  foot.
But things will not all go the way
of the visitors, despite the fact that
they are fielding an identical team
to last year's.
The Birds will feature a tall forward line of Forsyth, Bell, and Munro
which is expected to give the Chieftains considerable trouble in the rebound department.
Guards Mitchell and  Watt will  he
playing   first   string   and   will   very
easily make up in speed for what they
lack  in  height.
The Bird reserves look very good
this year. Only two men on the
second string are new to the Birds,
Hudson and Louie. The other three,
Southcott, Walker, and the lanky
pivot artist Art Phillips arc all playing their second year with the outfit.
But most important of all, the
Birds now have one of the most
tocklng factors last year,  experience.
Saturday night the Birds are to
meet the highly rated Clover Leaf
quintet, in another exhibition, non-
conference tilt. In many people's
minds, especially those interested in
city sports, this will be the game
to see.
ALTERNATE CENTRE Art Philips, seen handling the ball
with his usual dexterity, will be seeing action tonight when the
Thunderbirds take on Seattle University, Holding down centre
slot with Long John Forsythe, Art will undoubtedly be called
upon to take on some of the bucket duties

Evergreen Conference ruling docs
not allow any football player to participate in outside team play during
or after completion of the regular college football season.
Conference ruling on infraction of
this regulation is that the athlete be
prevented from playing football in the
conference during his remaining years
at university.
If Puil were to play Saturday, he
would automatically be kept from
playing for UBC as long as he continued to seek his education here. The
conference  would  see   to   that.
