VANCOUVER, B.C., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1950

Times
Charges Errors,
Misrepresentation
Below is an open letter to
UBC students from AMS president, Nonie Donaldson, commenting on the special flyer
circulated on the campus early
Wednesday by LSE prexy, Ed.
Pederson,   and   four   student
lawyers.
Editor, The UBC Times,
Dear Sir:
I would like to correct, officially,
a tew of the errors ln your flyer
yesterday.
1. The Student's Council did N(JT
vote the sum of $200.00 toward the
campaign tor "the plan" as stated
in your editorial.
(a) $100.00 was authorised by
the Homecoming Committee for
publicity ot Homecoming.
' (b) Mr. Bill Sparling was appoint*
ed by Council to co-ordinate the
spirit raising activities which had
already started after the demonstration following the last home
footbaU game.
No Definite .Amount
He was not given any definite
amount of money to spend but was
told he must reoeive the treasurers
approval before making any expen
ditures. The expenses he has incurred bave been very reasonable and
the effects he has achieved have
been  considerable.
The idea was NOT to get the
students to vote yes today but to
get them to VOTE and also to
raise student spirit and morale for
the rest of the year. If it collapses
after tbe general meeting then we
bave failed.
From MAD Funds
(c) The sum of $50 was appropriated from MAD funds to enable
a special edition of the Ubyssey
to appear with the facts a day before it would have been otherwise
possible.
Also, the Students' Council far
from attempting to railroad this
plan, authorized the money necessary to cover your flyer yesterday.
2. Regarding the donations from
downtown business men I would
like to say that your insinuations
are unjustified. Where did you get
your information? It is incorrect.
I have been told that there are a
group of men Incorporating under
the Societies Act ot B.C. who are
interested ln assisting athletes at
UBC. I submit that these men
whose organisation must be accepted at Victoria are not trying or
going to try any underworld tactics as to be incorporated they
must have a constitution stating
their purposes and alms.
Prevent Fund Misuse
We may assume that this will
prevent misuse of their funds.
This is not our business—we can do
nothing about it. Anyone can attend UBC who fulfills the requirements set by the administration.
3. I wonder if you stopped to
think before you wrote some of
your articles. For Instance, "Peel-
ersen's pleas against the crucifixion of every student activity lithe name of a professional football team went unheard.''
(a) Even Ed worked out the figures. On the basis of a drop in enrolment to 5,500 and giving MAD
the same per capita grant they received this year, they would get.
$18,425. If the enrolment Is 6,000
next year which is a possibility,
MAD could get under the present
system   $20,100.
Request Flat Grant
The request for a fiat grant of
$18,000 ls thus a reasonable one
and facilitates the budgeting of
athletics as one major sport begins three weeks before university officially commences,
(b) "Professional football team"
can hardly be used as an argument
against the proposed plan as nowhere in the plan is there a clause
that student funds are going to
buy football players. We are concerned with providing boots, etc.,
now for the players  we  have.
(c) The Council argued approximately 5 hours on Monday night
alone   about   various   sections   on

Twisted'
Points
Clarified
Three main points of Os-
trom's plan which are being
misinterpreted by some students on the campus were
clarified by the MAD treasurer Wednesday.
Treasurer Stan Clarke pointed
out the three misinterpreted points
to the Ubyssey.
He said the points were basically:
(1) MAD ia not asking tor an
additional $18,000 but a guarantee
of this amount as the yearly MAD
budget tor a tour year trial. This
year, by constitution, MAD is getting more than $18,000 on a por
capita basis and therefore would
be taking a cut when they accept
retmonslbility tor the Band and
Kickapoo Club from the L8K
budget.
(2) Students will have not one
day to decide on Ostrom'a plan
but until March IB, I960 when tbe
constitution will be brought before
the students for reapproval.
(3) No student or administrative
money will be spent for athletic
scholarships, but for organisational
purposes only.
Clarke felt the above points
needed clarification after hearing
varied misinterpreted opinion on
them.
Fine Weather
May Assist
Parade Plans
Hopes are high on Homecoming Parade committee that the
break in weather will dry dampened spirits of float builders
and raise production to a high
pitch.
Many floats are in the process of
completion now according to committee members but many more
are far from finished and still
more not-even started. *
Weather break will give builders more scope for their work and
allow them to put on extras which
orobably would be spoiled by a
downpour.
Parties who have notified the
committee of their intentions to
enter floats or participate ln the
parade, will be contacted by phone
either tonight or tomorrow night
by the committee.
Final information on time and
place of the parade's formation will
be announced to participants by
phone.
EUS General Meeting Recommends
Week's Delay Before AMS Vote
Students may have another week to consider MAD President Brock Ostrom's athletic aid plan if a motion by the Engineering Undergraduate Society is approved at today's general
AMS meeting.
EUS will recommend that the
plan be tabled for a week to allow
students more time to consider It.
Motion came from a general meeting of the BUS Wednesday ln Engineering 201 at noon.
TOO tPIIDY
"This plan has been put before
the student body too flulckly," EUS
president Don Duguid told a packed meeting. "Students should have
more time to consider it. I am
neither pro nor con on the matter
but I do think more time should be
allowed for consideration."
The meeting then passed a mo*
tion "that the Ostrom plan be
tabled until such a time as it can
be studied by the general student
body, and another general meeting be held November 9, it possible.
More than 600 students attended
the meeting which also defeated a
motion to strike out Ostrom's request for a fixed budget of $18,000
tor the next tour years,
FUTURE  PLANS
"The recommendation for $18,000
was made so that MAD presidents
in the future will not have to
worry about how much money they
will have to work with," Ostrum
told The Ubyssey.
Ostrom claims a fixed budget
for the MAD is necessary to insure'
that 'TJBC oan participate ln IntercoUeglate athletics to the fullest
extent. "Without a fixed budget,"
Ostrom said, "it would be Impossible for us to lay any concrete
plans for the future."

NEITHER PRO NOR CON
Possible AMS Budget For
By JOHN MacKINNON
The following ls a possible break
down of AMS expenditures for the.
year 1951-r»2. It Is of very tentative natuje, since, except for the
120,000 which would have to be
budgeted for MAD If the Ostrom
Plan passes now and later at a
constitutional amendment vote.
None of the other items would
necessarily stand the way they
have been Indicated.
The distribution of funds other
thnn MAD's $20,000 would he up
to next years' student body, on the
rncommondutlou of the treasurer
and council.
However, a tentative budget can
lie arrived ut under the following
assumptions, (a) Hint the enrol
ment will be around 5,500 students
next, year (b) that administration
and general expense can be reduc
ed slightly In face of a reduced
enrolment (c) thut the publications
board cost can be reduced although
the possibility of anything but a
slight reduction is very question
able (d) that owing to the fall ln
enrolment, grrfnts to the undergraduate societies will remain at a $1
per capitia in order to ensure that
their activities may he maintained
(e) that certain activities, such as
Parliamentary Forum, McGoun Cup
debates, Mus Soc and Player Club
productions deserve piiority (f)
that the proper grant of 12 cents
per student for NFCUS will be cut
to nine cents.
This is neither a plea for nor
against Ostrum's plan. It is however, an attempt to acquaint the
student body with the expenditures as they may look next year
as a result of Ostrum's recommendation. My absentlon ln council's
vote on the plan results from the
fact that I feel that lt is the student   body's   job   to* approve,   re
ject or amend the plan.

Letters To The Editor
The Untimely Times
The appearance of LSE's bright new
scandal sheet, the UBC Times, leaves us singularly unimpressed.
We are qi^ite agreed that the LSE hot1.
every right in llie world to make itself heard.
W» will concede that forces were very defin-
ately in motion to influence students in favor
of Ostrom's plan. What is more, the unveiling
of the plan at the last moment is not the
happiest situation possible.
All of this is reasonable. There are usual
ly two sides to a case. But this did pot justify
LSE in its emotive outburst.
The Ubyssey would point out that its
Dyer, which appeared at the sarne time as
the opposition sheet, did nothing more than
stflte the pfan as it was to be presented. We
do not point this out by way of patting ourselves on the back. The policy was no more
than normal.
We dp have an editorial policy which
serves a large number of purposes—but we
do i\ot carry it over into our news columns.
A Brighter Note
We are heartened to note that i\nive,r-
sitjes all across the continent are continuing
to protest vigorously against the flagrant violation oi academic rights at the University of
California. Latest to join the fight is the 1500-
st"cpng University of Texas protest group.
Day by day the movement is snowballing
and, with the backing of the U.S. National
Union of Students, the student groups wiU
finally make themselves felt.
LSE's editors confused news and editorial
comment—a sin which no good newsman
would ever commit.
1
We would also point out that the reason
behind the extra Ubyssey Wednesday was If
present the full particulars of Ostrom'a ath
letic aid plan at the earliest opportunity.
The plan was not completed until Monday, not adopted by Student Council until
their special meeting Tuesday, so that the
plan could not be presented,in full to the
students until the regular issue of the Uby-Ithtre
ssey today, the day of the meeting.
Council's move to pay for the extra with
student funds was so that the students could
be familiar with the plan at the meeting
today.
Nonie Donaldson's letter which runs un
page one of today's paper is sufficient to 3
indicate how ill-founded are LSE's outbursts
It is to be hoped that organization publishing future opposition sheets will show
better taste.
But it must be clear that post facto protests are ineffective. Once the rape has been
completed an un-rape is impossible.
Protests must be made before the event.
Students must make it clear that they wi^ll
not tolerate any further destruction of acada
mic freedoms. They qiust insist that they will
boycott any university which indulges in such
practices and that they will walk off such
campus en masse.

by John Brockington
Words of praise are always more difficult
to write than words of condemnation. For rre,
it is easier to communicate what I feel is
lacking in a performance than expound' at
any length about a concert that has filled
me with joy. Such seems to be the case in
niy discussion of the Paganini Quartet.
Here we have what is obvious to even
tiie untrained listener, one of the finest quartets of our time. It goes without saying that
all four members are virtuosi in their own
rights and also that they play with complete
unanimity. Their musical conceptions are integrated. They breathe and play as one.
This oneness has always been a hallmark
of the great quartets. Never can we be allowed to feel that four people have got together
to play. We must be aware that a quartet
of musicians have worked and lived together
until any individually has become subordinated to the blend of mind, purpose, and feeling
that constitutes the single and whole unit.
Realizing perhaps the great conveyor of
musical material that such a group may become, as well as the perfection and flexibility
of an instrumental ensemble that binds two
violins, one viola, and one cello, the greatest
composers have reserved many of their
supreme musical creations for this medium.
To me there is nothing in music as
satisfying, as thrilling and as stimulating as
the performance of a great string quartet.
Conversely there is nothing in musical ex
perience as harrowing as the utterances of a;
quartet that is less than great. Either one is
enchanted by every note or all the effort'.
has been in vain.
Although I felt it to be bad programming
when the Brahms Quartet Op. 59 was offered
after an Incomparable performance of the
Ravel Quartet, there is no doubt that in the
Beethoven Op/18 No. 5, the Ravel, and the
Brahms Quartets, that the group was given
ample opportunity to show their stylistic
range in composers of another day.
The Beethoven suffered from a surface
sheen that tended to rob it of a certain spontaneity but in matters of finesse and plasticity of phrasing there was little to be desired.
The Brahms showed up badly in comparison with the Ravel. Brahms has never
keen, one of my favorite composers and as
this is lesser Brahms, well-made but uninteresting, even the stunning virtuosity of the last
movement failed to compensate for the
i';imiliar agonies inflicfed by the seats in the
Hotel Vancouver Ballroom.
Those words of praise, so difficult to eke
out, fail me when I am faced with the glories
of the Ravel Quartet. Let it just be said thai
it was a performance tfiat carried one into
a more rarined atmosphere and that the
sounds made by the violist are among the
most beautiful I have ever heard or ever
hope to hear.

Morning to all Economic Students.

Laek of tpaee prohibited printing jof this latter In the Ubyssey
txtre of November 1. As wt prom;
lied the writers of the latter, we
reprint It new.
Editor, Tfce Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Sweeping the campus Is a welter
of rumors that there Is a "sneak'
purpose hidden in Thursday's athletic aid resolution
On Thursday the student body
will rubber stamp, virtually sight
unseen, a resolution which maj
contain parts of five plans.
^hy such cloak and dagger secrecy if these plans are as "innocent"  as  their proposers   claim';
There is no doubt that when finally disclosed, the resolution to
be jammed through a packed assembly will seem harmless enough
In Itself, fiut there are disturbing
and persistent rumors that the
resolution is a mere front hiding a
framework for an organization that
will permit handling of student athletics over to a syndicate of generous outside sports promoters.
Watch out. The rumors go so far
as to suggest that these outside
"Interests" will in effect take over
control of such properties as UBC's
football franchise, the Stadium and
even the Memorial Gym. It ls suggested that these "interests'* are
not unmindful of the approaching
British Empire Games.
In allowing students no time to
examine the real purpose of this
resolution, its proposers have committed a breach of faith.
If there ls even a remote possibility that \inder the banner front
of this resolution student athletic?
are to be turned Into a commercial
venture    by    outsiders,    students
must defeat lt on Thursday.
( Yours sincerely,

Deaf Sir:
Yeu seem to have the idea that
the CLU is in the grip of that horrid, ogre Lethargy. I wish to re-
jff)y% that this is far from true. As
lqjig as anybody's civil liberties
are "tramped on" (and sai'd trampling Is (juiite common today) the
CLU lyllj Jump in with both feet
(to trample the trampler.
Perhaps you have noticed that
we cancelled our meeting scheduled
for Friday', 27th. This was due to
UN Week which the CLU is anxious ^o support in all ways pos-
^e jftafi \o bt'i,n,g oirt to the campus interesbing speakers pin vital
topics. W? hope the students will
support ttie CLU, a dub that we
|ee"l is t^eceSjSary to make our democracy secure.
Yours truly,       i
Lawrence Lynds,
Secretary—CLU.
EDITORIALS
Editor,  The  Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:   '
Wo cannot let pass without comment two of your recent editorials.
First, instead of editorially complaining about club lethargy why
doesn't The Ubyssey do something
about it. By giving more and better
coverage to club functions, you
Mr. Edltof, can put life back into
the clubs. Emphasize their importance, arouse interest ln them: in
short take your secrecy ban off
their activities and tell the stu- •
dents about them.
Second, was your Friday editorial "Let's Have a Circus" the product of a perverted sense of humor
or of a colossal Ignorance of the
tragic French political situation?
In line with the suggestions written above, we think that you could
use your space more profitably.
Your paper is doing an excellent job destroying athletic lethargy. We look forward to your giving the clubs that need bolstering
the same treatment.
Yours sincerely,
Interested Students.

-* Through the cooperation ot the
B.C. Engineering Association, the
National Employment Service, and
various industries across Canada,
nearly all of the 800 graduates who
applied for jobs have been placed
J. M. McLean, director of personnel services said in an interview.
' At least 95 per cent of the 650
applied science graduates are now
working, with 65 per cent of them
in British Columbia, ami the remainder scattered throughout the
prairies, Eastern Canada, and England. The demand for mechanical
engineers has exceeded the supply. All but a small percentage' of
commerce grads have jobs. Arts-
men and Aggies did not fare as
well, although those who specialized and who obtained good academic standings are all placed. Of the
others, 20 per cent are still seeking employment. Only 60 applications from women graduates were
received   this  year.
"Generally speaking, the employment picture for UDC graduates is
most encouraging," said Mr. McLean. "Now that we are close to
the end of the programme for
1950, we will be taking applications from 1951 graduates in January.

implementation of tbe plan come
lip for adoption you have the opportunity of changing your mind.
Nobody is being pushed around—
we," the Student's Council, *re
publicising the meetly today because we want to know what you
want as a whole—not just the
wishes of approximately one sixth
of the student body—thd number
which ordinarily tump up at a
general meeting. .:.
5. There are varipup re^rjts tn
you flyer condemning Council for
obligating the students for the
next four years.    * '
This is not the case aa you will
probably have realized now if
you have read1 ReconuHendatlon 10
which states "THAf the organisa-
tional structure of the''M[A$ *>• r»
viewed at the annual fenerW meeting of the AMSeach March for#a
4 year period, and that, if » tn^or-
ity of students feel thit student
interests are being impaired by ijhe
new organisational structure that
the MAA revert'to the cortsftttftion
now in force."
6. I agree with you on one yotot.

Straight from a central European "cloak and dagger" border
meeting are three new students at

of the International Refugee Organization.
Veevolod Koyander, Jiri Rohn
and Brlgitta Balta were with five
other European students at the
Austro-German frontier for an interview with Canada's Prof. L. E.
Lynch.
If was the only place ln the
world these persons could meet,
for the DP students could not get
passes to enter Germany and Prof.
Lynch had not had time to secure
an-Austrian entry permit.   .
So they sat on the grass in the
no man's land between the two
nations and talked over the possibilities or starting life anew in
Canada.
Koyander, the Yugoslav now at
UBC, has had six semesters at
Karsrube and Munich, studying
architecture a,nd civil engineering

HOLDER of several Canadian and inter-collegiate swimming
records is Nick Stobbart, member of the UBC splash group.
Swim coaches expect that the team's chances in collegiate meets
will be much brighter with Stobbart, only in his second year at
the University, on the UBC roster.
RECORD HOLDER
Swimming on Way
Up Says Stobbart
By PETI LU32TIQ
"Swimming is definitely on the way up at UBC, and I'm
glad I could get back after taking a year off," said Nick Stobbart, one of the top men on the Thunderbird swim team.
"Things are the best they have ever looked since UBC
watermen first made themselves known on the Pacific coast in
1948." >
Swimming fans are all familiar
with Nick Stobhart, for he is ns
well-known In local and Eastern
aquatic circles. His return to the
campus has given the 'Birds the
addled strength they will need
when they encounter various teams
of the Pacific Coast Conference.
Born in England, Nick came to
Canada at an early age, and attended school in Montreal. In 1944
he moved to Vancouver, and learned to swim while a member of the
Vancouver Amateur Swimming
Club.
Soon afterwards, Nick started to
started to break the headlines..
In 1946, swimming as a junior,
he swam on the record breaking
B.C. Relay team, which still holds
the Canadian Junior 4x50 yards
title. In the same year, he was
narrowly edged out in tbe 100
yards freestyle at the nationals by
British Empire Games champion
Pete  Salmon.
In 1948, Nick swam at the Olympic Trials in Montreal, and placed
third ln the 440 freestyle behind
Gilchrist, and Jim Portelance, mon
who have since represented Canada at International competitions.
At these trials he once more swam
with the winning B.C. relay teitu.
After the trials Nick came to
UBC, and swam for the university
squad. In one of the first meets of
the year, he set up a new Canadian
intercollegiate medlay rcord for the
150 yards. In addition, he captured
tho B.C. title for the 100 yards
freestyle.
If Nick continues to give us the
results he has in the past, UBC will
more than likely capture one or
two more Inter-colleglate records,
and thus take over from McGJll us
the top Canadian college swim
learn.
Coach Issues
Puck-Minded UBC
Students Challenge
"The hockey played by the
UBC Thunderbirds is as good
as you will see anywhere, and
I challenge you to come out
and see for yourselves."
Official challenge was made the
students on the campus by Frank
Fredrickson, honorary coach of the
Bird hockey squad.
"You cannot have real school
spirit," he continued, "if the student body supports only one Or two
of its major sports."
Monday night, students will have
a chance to show their new-found
spirit at the ice rink.
Birds encounter the Nanaimo
flippers In their first home gamo
of the season, and their second
successive test with the Hub olty
crew.
First game ended in a 2-2 saw
off.
Kerrisdale Arena will host the
UBC squad's home opener at 8:30
p.m.
Team has been showing welldur-
ing practice sessions, and has
worked into top form. Forward and
defense lines have been shifted
considerably to enable ohtainment
of greatest  punching power.
Home team will be gunning for
its first season victory, with the
added desire to complete Homecoming festivities on the right foot.

BEST COACH
Not content with team practices he would go down to the YMCA.
and practice dribbling, shooting
and movement and by himself If
there were no games at hand.
"Jack Pomfret is the best coach
I ever had," he stated, and should
be in a position to judge good
coaches.
Arriving at UBC, Willis played
with the Chiefs his first year, and
last year with the 'Birds. Substituting for Reid Mitchell, in A preseason warm-up, he netted 14
points. A few days before the conference opener, he was moved up
