Senate Laws
Will Restrict
Athletic Aid
Any decisions of the student "Athletic Grants-in-Aid"
Committee will be definitely
restricted by ihe laws of the
UBC Senate.
A letter from President Norman
McKenzie indicated this week that
the Senate would be directly opposed to "athletic scholarships,"
but would probably allow them to
be given through the Prices Scholarships, Bursaries and Loans Committee of the university.
Dr. McKenzie said: "This does
not mean that a student who is a
good athlete would be discriminated or would not be entitled to
"It might even mean that, as In
the case of Rhodes scholars, skill
and Interest in athletics would be
one of their requirements ln winning the scholarship.
"Other factors would definitely
be taken  Into  consideration."
He said that the decision of the
Senate was binding until such a
time as the Senate itself meets to
rescind lt.
The Qrants-ln-Ald committee are
attempting to determine to what
extent athletic aid* could be given
under the ruling.

Grads are reminded that their
fees are long overdue, and will be
needed to purchase the gift of glass
basketball backboards for the War
Memorial Oym.
These will be officially donated
at convocation ceremonies. -
Opposing the resolution were
Law students Bruce Lee and Ron
Cheffins. The audience supported
the resolution almost unanimously.
The coveted trophy, presented
to the nurses by Dal Gordon, was
awarded for the third time. It was
won by an Arts team in 1949, and
by Home Economics last year.
All preliminary debating ls
closed, and only the finals are
open to the student body.
Chairman for the debate was
president-elect Joe Nold.
The debate took place ln Arts
100 at 12:30.
The dangers of over-population
were stressed by Mrs. Clemens in
her argument advocating birth
"Population should be controlled through birth control rather
than by disease or war," she said.
The mentally -and emotionally
unfit, .ihe continued, should be
prevented from reproducing. Birth
control Is also desirable, for women
whose physical condition would
make pregnancy dangerous to their
"Birth control should also be
used as a means of spacing children,. It 1b more desirable to produce » ttftmy, flBftrtfry fwmily thftn
one which is over-burdened."
Speaking for the negative law
student Bruce Lee declared that
birth control was antl-soclal, and
amounted to little more than legalized  prostitution.
"Birth control has become the
basis for pre-marital Intercourse,
and has contributed to the degeneration of the race."
""Contraceptives are medically
harmful," he added. "They endanger the health of the woman,
often rendering her sterile. Nature cannot be fooled."
Too Much Money
Inflation Cause
Higher Taxes, Reduced Spending
Recommended As High Price Cures
The trouble with you is that you have too much money.
This may not meet with popular public agreement, but
UBC's Dr. Robert M. Clark said Wednesday that it was the main
 ^* cause of present inflation.

Senior Editor—ELSIE OORBAT
Include Us Out
UBC's student P.C.'s, trying to progress
and conserve at the same time, seem to have
lost themselves somewhere in the middle.
Earlier t*his week, our patriotic, communist-battling, freedom-believing-in, disciples of
George Drew passed a motion demanding
compulsory military training in Canada.
Having progressed thus far, they set out
to conserve by quietly adding that university
students ought to be exempt from the draft
provided they participate in reserve training
Exactly why university students should
have the privilege of escaping into the reserves we don't know-unless it could be thai:
our eampus politicians might find life in thc
forces a little rough.
We doubt that the people of Canada will
ever endorse compulsory military training
except in time of war, but we nre quite certain that the brand of hypocrisy contained in
the Tory resolution will result only ih loud
belly-laughs in Ottawa.
What the kiddies hope to gain except a
few votes from the Canadian Legion and ono
or two laudatory editorials from the Southan?
Press (which nobody seems to read anyhow),
we don't know.
The Ubyssey has stood consistently
against compulsory military training. In the
first place, we don't think there's going to be
a war. Moreover, we are convinced that vast
armaments races are no great help to the
cause of peace.
Those who do believe in compulsory
military training have an equal right to their
opinions. But we doubt the good sense of a
university group which proposes conscription
for everybody else and a way out for Itself.
The SPM Broadens Out
Since we're constantly a target of various groups of students who claim that we
ar* quick to condemn and far too slow to
praise, we'd like to put in a good word here
fbr a groupvwhich we tried and found wanting last January in these same columns.
We refer to an organization which, justifiably or otherwise, has been accused of holding aims which are actually contrary to its
stated ideals—the Student Peace Movement.
Last January, we observed that the SPM
had deviated from it earlier, laudable system of presenting speakers of every political
It appeared, as The Ubyssey said on January 16, that the SPM had decided that
Stalinism offered the only path to peace.
We even wentjso far as to suggest that the
Peace Movement redefine itself as a group
devoted to cooperation with the USSR, which
in fact'it already appeared to be.
But things have changed since January.
Immediately after our editorial appeared, tho
SPM protested that it had merely been a victim of bad luck, that it had been inviting and
political camps to send speakers, but that
only the leftists were answering the call.
We are now happy to observe that SPM-
sponsored speakers are truly representatives
of at least half a dozen separate points of
One can no longer state justly that's visit
to an SPM meeting will mean subjecting oneself to a barrage of Soviet propaganda.
What we now believe to be important is
the fact that an objective approach toward
the problem of peace is far from impossible
under the SPM's current program of meetings.
By offering such a platform for many-
sided discussions, the SPM, we believe,
is quite capable of formulating a few ideas
that are worthy of the consideration of us
And who knows? By attending their
meetings some of us could also possibly even
learn a thing or two.
Critic on the Hearth
Contrary to'popular belief musicians may
live for Art but find in difficult when expected to live on Art.
Like most public servants musicians are
grossly underpaid. If a man were to live on
what he was paid by his present Symphony
contract he might just be able to manage his
carfare, intermission coffee, and the cleaning
of that all important tuxedo every other week.
Of course everyone knows that the starving
musician routine is passe; Mozart died a
pauper, but after all, what is the Salvation
Army for? But let us not forget that in 1945,
in New York, center of the most luxurious of
present day civilizations, one of the greatest
composer of all time, Bela Bartok died from
neglect and want.
Our own professors are now on tbe
rampage for higher salaries but what the
symphony musician needs is more work.
Even when the orchestra had a so-cal'ed
full season last year, the average pay e"*r
member was only one thousand dollars. Some
may answer yes, but only for a season from
October to March. What more do they expect
for six months half day work? It has always
seemed strange to me that, the public apparently needs symphonic music only in the cold
weather or every other Sunday afternoon for
five summer concerts in Malkin Bowl. May
I suggest to those in power that if a symphony's box office appeal is good for only
six months (which I doubt very much) tha*:
there is a whole province without :i
chance to even pay to hear a live symphony
orchestra. If Vancouver is saturated with the*
present fare there are unknown wonders to
be worked by a symphony barnstroming tho
,Why not a B.C. Symphony Orchestra
scheduled to spend part of their winter in
Vancouver and the months of April, Maj',
June, and September in the rest of B.C.?
Sir Thomas Beecham toured thc Royal Philharmonic in USA. Sadler's Wells carted their
immense baggage in a cross-country tour.
Why not our symphony? Granted that in
their present'condition the Vancouver Symphony possibly is no position to offer even
the residents of Osoyoos much of an experience but if it were built into a crack
organization there seems to me a distinct
possibility that quality will be countered hy
With the present paltry wages and short
season the symphony can never hope to
contract a higher calibre of performer. There
are no doubt a select few musicians who find
the Vancouver Symphony a tidy supplement
to their radio, TUTS earnings but these are
the clique, and penetration of that group by
what we may term the average symphonic
player is an impossibility. The CBC in spit?
of some of its excellent programs has the
habit of employing the same people time and
time again for every show both musical and
dramatic. Radio must have live talent but
it seems to me that it would be necessary if
the symphony were on a full time basis as
suggested, with adequate living wages for
all, that a split must come between those
musicians whose work is for the radio, etc,
and those whose business lies in the participation in a first rate orchestra. You can't have
your cake and eat it too and that is what too
many Vancouver musicians are trying to do.
Discussing salaries and a living waj
lends me to suggest that the sixteen thousand
dollars in American money paid to our last
permanent conductor is grossly in excess of
wage even in a position which should make
what might be termed an adequate living
him one of the city's leading citizens.
A year round season and the concentrating of the orchestras membership on the
proper fulfillment of one job seems to me
to be a positive step in forcing the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra to »*ise from tolerant indulgence to admiriation and devotion from >ts
numerous critics.

Thwarted ht Plans
retaliatory raid by women students
on a men's residence was thwarted recently by University of Saskatchewan authorities.
The residents of Saskatchewan
Hall, a women's dormatory planned
to "get even" with their male neighbors in nearby Qu'Aippelle Hall.
The co-ed.s blamed -the boys for
the recent raid on Saskatchewan
Hajl which resulted In physical assault . on some girls, plugged-up
plumbing, broken windows and the
arrival of firemen and Mountles.
Authorities learned of the coeds' plans before the project reprisal could be carried out, and forbade the raid. No disciplinary action was taken against the girls
who planned the counter-attack.
Meanwhile the ho*4se committee
of the men's residence, Qu'Appel-
le denied that Its residents participated ln the raid on Saskatchewan Hall.
The University Faculty Council
Issued these new rulings to prevent   future   student   raids:
"Apy student who in future enters Saskatchewan Hall without
the proper authorization will be
suspended from the university for
the balance of the term, Including
"Any group of organized students carrying out any organized
raid upoq any buiWlq**-*. on the campus will be subject to very severe
penalties, the severity to depend
upon the circumstances."

head librarian* of the University
of Toronto. f
Similar letters are being distributed to all large libraries and
schools throughout Canada and
the United States asklpg them to
help replace at least part of the
books lost.
Especially wanted are College
texts In tfie sciences, economics,
literature, h i s t o r y, philology
(Grammars and dictionaries ln
English, French, German, T.atin
and Greek.)
Also needed are the standard
classics, poetry, (English, Canadian, American, FrenclK and German), biographies, travel books,
world affairs, philosophy, religion,
periodicals and worthwhile fiction.
The greatest loss is the books of
I the School of Library Science. The
highly specialized reference books,
text books, art books, early editions from 1946 up and a large
number of works by private presses up until the present day, all
have been  burned.

In this writer's opinion Its a shame that only
one one boxing show a year can be put on by
: Having seen every fight up to and Including
thejlnals, I have been amazed at the ring ability
of yonie of the gladiators.
Take Nick Cotten. for example. Cot ten, who
was' fighting in the novice welterweight division,
is (ute of the better counter-punchers In the city.
He fought some very capable novice in the elimination nuitrbs but was clearly on top alter every
scrap. In the finals he made his eager opponent
looli rather foolish, almost jabbing his bead off.
'Dan Oliver, he of Kngllsh Rugby fame, is
another scrapper worthy of ment ion. Danny li:>s
been well-known around Vancouver gyms for
stiveral years. He proved his ability in bis match
with hard-hitting Dick Stephens, displaying a
good knowledge ot in-fighting.
Ken Hoss, who was TKO'd by Jack llendlck,
is one of those fighters termed a "natural." Willi
"good coaching Itoss could bring honors to the
lAIma   -Muter,  us   could  llendlck,   who  possesses
a bone-crushing left hook and a good defense.
Fighters such as Gord Oates. Jack Scott, the
Niekols  brothers.  Doug  Swall, and others,  also
looked    potentially    like    better-than - average
During the eliminations «|t has been computed that dose to all the male students on the
caf pus were in Ihe stadium at one time or another, and apparantly enjoying the proceedings.
With lhe little publicity the Friday night
show obtained, a crowd of near 1500 turned out.
What would he the result if these bouts were
periodically staged with other colleges on a Intercollegiate basis?
It's common knowledge that most of the
colleges in the Kvsrgreen Conference and the
bigger universities, such as Washington State,
hold  the same  type of contests.
Willi Ihe idea of staging these inter-collegiate
bunts to sec bow our hoys would slack up with
American iiinaleures, perhaps some scheme could
hi' drafted in the near future.
