Athletics - re Football (discussion

A letter dated February 6th from the Honourable
Mr. Justice Clyne was read on the subject of professionalism
in University sport. Mr. Justice Clyne wrote expressing
the desirability of eliminating spectacle sports as far as
possible from the University campus, and presented the
following suggestions:
1.  That University coaches and members of the faculty of Wednesday, February 13, 1952   1822,
the School of Physical Education be instructed
officially that undue emphasis must not be placed
on any one particular sport.
2. That University coaches and members of the faculty
of the School of Physical Education be instructed
officially that it is contrary to the policy of the
University to encourage "Athletic" scholarships
except in cases where they are merited by scholastic
attainment.
3. That no student be permitted to engage in University
sport or other activities, that is to say he may not
play on a University team, or otherwise represent the
University, unless he has secured a pass standing in
all subjects. By this, I mean that a student should
not be allowed to represent the University on any team
or in any other activity if he starts the University
year with supplementals which must be written off.
4. That the hours of practice for any game or other
activity be limited to six hours per week, such period
to include hours for which any credit is granted.
Further in this connection, a draft letter prepared by the
President and addressed to Dean Gage was read, setting forth
the following recommendations of the Committee of College
and University Presidents in the United States:
1. Athletic scholarships should be forbidden.  All
scholarships should be given strictly on the basis of
a student's educational ability and economic need,
2. No freshmen should be allowed on varsity teams.  Junior
college and other transfers would wait for a full year
before being allowed to play.
3. No one shall play on any Varsity team who is carrying
a condition, or who has not made an average of at
least 50%  in the preceeding Spring exams.

meeting of Senate.  After some discussion,
Judge Lord)
Mr. Wright)  That the Chair be asked to appoint a
Committee to study and report on policy
in respect of competitive and intercollegiate athletics, in so far as the
University of British Columbia may be
concerned, and that this Committee be
asked to discuss any recommendations

and suggested that Senate go on record as to what action,
if any, the University should take in the event of a Bill
covering this application being presented to the Private
Bills Committee at the present Session of the Legislature.
After discussion,
Judge Lord)
Dr. Cowan )  That the Chair be asked to obtain a copy

After some discussion, Mr. Fulton asked that the Committee
on Catholic Education, as reconstituted and reported to

requests put forward by the B. 0. Catholic Education
Association Committee and the recommendations made following
consideration of those representations by the Committee on
Catholic Education, which were presented to Senate on
January llth, 1949. Dean Angus asked that Mr. Fulton's
suggestion be explained more fully and the President stated
his understanding of the matter, that the re-constituted
Committee on Catholic Education, being representative of a
new Senate, should consider a gain the request of the Roman
Catholic constituency, and that the Committee should report
back to Senate as to what might be done in the circumstances.
