Chem Lab
Fee Rises
3 Dollars
Ijicrtast to
Cover Material
Chemistry students at UBC
are faced with the prospect of
paying three more dollars in
lab fees this term.
In a statement to the UbysBey
today Dr. Gilbert Hooley, chairman of the Chemistry department,
said, "the fee Increase was approved by a summer meeting ot tbe
university board of governors."
"The extra money will be used
to cover costs of expendable materials such as chemicals, acids and
litmus paper," he added.
Dr. Hooley was not in favor with
the manner chosen to levy the*
new fee btit he said that the labs
were a necessity to the course and
the increase seemed the only solution.
i Only part of "expendable material" cost will be taken care of by
student money and the remainder
will have to come from the university's provincial grant.
Students registered In more than
three chemistry courses will be
charged a maximum of nine dollars
for all lab costs.
It was hoped that the provlu
clal grant would have been sufficient to cover all cost but university administration decided it was
necessary to call upon the students.
"Roughly 2,000 students are affected by the Increase," said Pro
fessor Hooley. "Of these, 700 are
In first year."
First year students are only
charged one dollar extra for "expendable materials." All students
purchase a three-dollar breakage
book at the beginning of the year
aW are refunded what has not
been used when the term encfs.
Dr. Hooley regretted that the
increase could not have been published in the 1050-51 calendar but
since the calendar goes to press
late In Janipuy, it wasn't possible.
Half Honorarium
Awarded To Haar
John L. Harr former President of the AMS, who resigned
in September to do post-graduate work in the U.S. will receive
one-half of the honorarium annually awarded the head of UBC's
student government.
Student Council decided to make the award in appreciation lor tho
the six months service he gave before resigning.
fhe honorarium would bave been used to pay the Teacher-Training course he planned to take at UBC this year.
"The award given ls a token in appreciation of the work John*Haar

Upped NFCUS Fee
Council May Send Rest Of Fee
Next Year If Budget In Shape
Student Council has refused to pay part of an increased
levy of 20 cents per student to provide for running expenses of
the National Federation of CanadianUniversity Students during
the coming session. ^	
Previously the fee was six percent per student plus $140 for transportation ot delegates to the conference held In the'summer. «
At the conference representatives from UBC bargained for a
straight fee of 12 cents but It was
not accepted, '
The purpose of the increase is
to maintain a permanent office in
order to make the organization
more cohesive. This office would
be in tbe East, probably in Ottawa.
"At present the UBC student
council Is able to pay only 12
cents, said Nonie Donaldson, "at
the end of the year, however, if
the finances allow it we will pay
the remainder.
NFCUS represents 05,000 students ln Canadian universities.

Midwinter Claims
Frosh Week
Despite the apparent lethargic
attitude of many freshmen, Frosh
Orientation was a definite success
according to Co-ordinator of Activities, .11 in Midwinter.
Turnout for the first few events

he said, but as the week progressed the new students became more
"aggressive" and attended in force

Blood of Frosh
In Danger
Red-blooded Engineers will
drain themselves dry to out-
donate all other faculties on

bis' changes today. Redshirts announced that If this challenge Is
not met, they will add freshmen

Tills might prove disastrous,
so everybody must co-operate to

of 1,500 pints or blood, be said.
Last year's quota was not met
despite an all out effort by the Engineers and Nurses, biggest donors
in last year's campaign. Red Cross
mobile clinic will operate from 10
to 11:00 a.m. and from 1 to li:3ft
p.m. Dates of clinic are Octobei
11,  12, 17, IS, 19 and 20.
Tbe process does not require
more than half hour. The greatest
discomfort involved is the pin
prick used to test blood before donation is accepted, Red Cross officials stated.
No blood will be taken If there
is any chance of harm to the donor,'
they emphasized. Qualified doctors and nurses are ln attendance
at all times.
Donors receive a coke before giving blood and a cup of coffee afterwards.

Brock May Be Enlarged io
Campus Clubs More Working Space
Student Council will request that the UBC Board of Governors allocate a sum of money in the future to provide for
partial completion of Brock Hall, it was announced Wednesday.
The move came ln the form of* : ■	
a motion at Student Council meeting Monday night. Motion, introduced by Jim Midwinter, co-ordlnator of activities and seconded
by Ed Pedersen, president of the
Literary and Scientific Executive
directs the president of the AMS
to contact the Board requesting
that ln their plans for the next
few years "they consider allocating funds for Brock Hall extensions, as the present capacity is
not adequate."
''The Board of Governors gets
two or three *ftiilliofts froih the
government at a time," public relations officer Charles Marshall
said, "and we want to stick an
'or' ln for some money to increase
the size of the Brock."
No specific figure will be requested in the letter which president
Noni Donaldson will send to the
Board,  Marshall said.
If Brock Hall is enlarged •additional space will be available for
campus clubs, Marshall said. The
plan Is to do completely away with
huts behind Brock Hall, he' added.
"Student Council," Marshall said,
"would like to see additional club
space made available within Brock
Hall itself."

On Club Grants
Purpose of token grants to
religious, political; and inter*
faculty clubs is to set a precedent to open the door for bigger
future grants, AMS Treasurer
John MacKinnon stated today.
Grants of $15 were voted tp
these clubs by Student Council
at Us Monday night meeting in
recognition of the work of these
clubs on the campus.
"Although this move Imposes
certain restrictions on the groups,
it also guarantees them financial
security," McKinnon said. "The
Ubysseys editorial is unfair in saying all club profits would go to the
AMS. Instead, only those profits
over and above club' fees will be
"Although this Involves a certain amount of red tape, any
amount of red tape Is preferable

From Out Of The Cloud
The activities of Communist China, despite their incessant recurrence in the headlines, remain obrcured behind a thick cloud
of wooly thinking.
UBC students are all to familiar with the
pitiful rantings of Or. James Endicott and
the inane V"e¥bmf(§*t'hF6w^ out by the rightist
camp.      ~
Sane, tjbje.ctive viewpoints seem to have
disappeatjBfH ,dqwtr the bottomless gulch
which ltes between* the world's two sparring
powers. Vet «the question of Communist
China is* one which wa cannot afford to
ignore,   ii,*. !
If, as many of us would like to think,
the traditional i Chinese capacity for compromise kfldg Mflp'*. rtgime down the "third
road" we^may *yet see the rise of a power
which couldxlo much towards the preservation of vkox^pftpeje. *
Thus whole hearted co-operation . between Communist China and those powers
which have'ardlsftste-fer the machinations of
Vj^l^X-a:'. "
UnforFunate Fee
The chemistry department's announce-
ment oia ne-w-$3-fee-"4&-eover cost of chemicals and othofiaboratory materials" comes as
n body .blow, .to, all students concerned.
Asj^xwUl.as it, the fee means another
sore nick in.,the student pocket book, at
which ,Old Man inflation has been whittling
away imrtotr ixmgr* -"~~--»
We can understand why the price of
education X? J^ijfh today Jor all who seek it.
Costs flJfcrSelfe^lre high, and, as we all
know, even the forestry department hasn't
yet developed such a thing as a money tree.
But the timing of the announcement was
at least unfortunate. Most students have already reckoned their pennies up to Christmas, budgeting already for as many unexpected expenditures as they can manage.
It's  like  being suddenly  told  that Uncle
both Uncle Joe and Uncle Sam would become a desperate necessity.
On the other hand it is altogether possible that the Chinese Communists, faced
with the hostility of the western world, may
be driven directly into the Stalinist ctmp.
In Mao's refusal to accept the Kremlin directive to launch mi immediate invasion of Formosa and in his equally adamant refusal to
become directly involved in the Korean dispute, the Chinese reds have given ample
evidence of their hesitancy to tramp the party
Today the United Nations Club brings
Donald Faris, a former missionary and UNRRA worker in China, to the campus. Mr.
Faris has expressed his intention to return
to China. Though he has long been a supporter of the Communist regime he has carefully
refrained from allying himself with the diet*
pies of Moscow. Thus he has sunk into comparative obscurity.
It is in such man, however, that our hope
lies We hope he won't let us down.
John and Aunt Matilda will arrive tomorrow
to stay a month, when you haven't enough
food in the larder to last a week.
Aside from the tardiness with which chemistry students learned of their latest financial
obligation, we can find no fault with the
chemistry department's policy.
The principle is sound, if unfortunate.
Chemicals cost more than the amount allowed to the department through government
More money from the government is the
only ultimate solution to the students1 dilemma. But that solution is too pat and too popular to be a likely one at present.
All that our student chemists can and
should do at the moment is to break open
that piggy bank, turn over those 300 pennies,
and force a grin.

Council Assures Clubs of
Getting Token or Taken
I see where Student Council has voted
to offer token budgets to several clubs on the
campus "for the good work they do."
This system^„ of ...giving out money to
people on the canlptlf *|pi» the good work they
do is something that should be carried further than political clubs and religious organizations.
Student Council should also consider offering a token budget toL.
The Engineers, for staying away from UBC
during the summer. (I understand the administration actually got some lillies growing
in the lily pond for a while before the Engineers came back in September).
The bookstore, for not having a great
many books which are required for various
subjects. (Conservative estimates show that
this bookstore service saves the average student more money than he could possibly
wive through a special rate on books.)
Tho cafeteria, for providing newly-painted furniture for students to put their feet
en. (I understand several co:eds quit going
down to the Caf last year because their saddle oxfords were getting too much dirt on
them from the table tops and chair seats.)
The Registrar, for cutting down the University Calendar. (I might point out here
that this';' year's streamlined edition contains
only .546 pages of concise confusion. The
!!>4fl-50 Calendatrcontained many more pages,
nnd it consequently took a great deal more
leading to become thoroughly bewildered.
The Registrar ha.s thus saved the students'
time and the University's money.)
The administration, for not paying the
East Mall or levelling off the north parking
lot.   (Pot-holes   in   both   these   places   may
easily prove to contain live students who
fell in last spring and haven't been heard
from since. Nothing should be done in the
way of resurfacing until it is certain thai
such students are only Engineers.)
The Arts Undergraduate Society, for trying to organize arts undergraduates into a
society. (Since the Trek of '22, artsmen hove
been trying to organize artsmen into a society.
It wouldn't be quite the same around here
anymore if artsmen were organized; there'd
he nothing left for artsmen to try to do.)
The Frost Undergraduate Society* for managing a 30 percent turnout at executive elections. (The Frosh have thus set a new low
record fbr other undergraduates to try for.
I understand artsmen are going to try for
a 10 percent turnout, if they can get an Arts
Undergraduate Society organized to have an
election for. Otherwise, the Frosh should remain unchallenged in this field.)
Brock Hall officials who close the lounge
quite frequently on account of special functions. (I have been told that some artstneh
t-ave up to $1.25 in bridge debts alorte every
time Brock Hall lounge is closed. One arts-
man told me that if he continues to save at
this rate, he can soon afford to, go to some of
these special functions himself.)
Student Council, for offering tbkeri budgets to several clubs on the campus "foi- the'
good work they do." (Statistics show that the
average member in a political club has never
linen to church in his life; this situation
creates a great need for religious clubs, which
in turn keep their members so absorbed with
theology that, only organizations such as the
political clubs can keep them up to date on
world  affairs)..

THI Ubyuty.
near Sir:
There seems to be confusion
about the Arts Undergraduate society. Witness Tuesday's heatl.
"Jlnxed Society may organize
again/' You are quite right about
the "Jlnxed" part, worst luck. But
we are not going to organize again.
We were never unorganized.
Mf-embers of the Arts Council
have been working on the revision ot the Constitution, and will
present the new Constitution' at a
general meeting ot Arts students
to be held late this month.
The reason tor the representatives from the English 200 classes
is not "to organize the now defunct
society,' but to be organised into
a subsidiary group, the Sophomore
Undergraduate ConunlUee, by this
society, which is not at all'defunct.
The committee is to *ct as a liaison between the Sophs and the
Arts U.S. We hope ln this way to
get better cd'Ordlnatton between
the groups.
Another small mistake. We are
not using dtofL niethods of PUS.
Tfiey are Heine ours. When Frosh
were a part of Arts U.S., we used
the same method to elect: representatives to the Frosh Counoil, several years before the founding of
PUS. Prom the 30 per cent voting
representation, we gather that
fresh are not very interested ln
their new society. If staying with
the Arts U.S. was a mistake,
breaking away seems to be a greater one.

the cuteBt girls I've met—blond
hair, a darling figure and a lovely
voice. She graduated last year from
the U of Saskatchewan, where she
worked on both the newspaper and
the annual, and I noticed an honor
ring on her finger. After a few preliminary remarks about the weather, we started discussing the dorms
and their related problems.
The girls were hoping to get into
the residence at the beginning of
the school year, but because of construction difficulties, the dorms are
Richardson,   Miss   Robertson   and
Miss WillB will be in attendance.
This little Item started me Wondering what dorms would be like,
so with a woman's curiosity, I decided to see if I could find out more
about them. MIbb Brearly, the resident don, suggested I talk to
Peggy Mater, who has just been
elected president of the girls.
not ready yet. Peggy said "everybody took lt well" after discovering that the residences were not
ready. The girls are now .housed
at the Youth Training Centre in
Acadia Camp. "We're treating this
as a sort of summer camp till we
get settled into the dorms." Peggy's
hut ls one of the usual—there are
eight girls ln each hut and two
girls in a room. Actually the rooms
looked very hice, although Peggy
quoted the remark that seems to
have applied to dorms since the
hglhning of time—"Theres no place
to put anything." The girls can't
wait to get over te the dorms because everything over there ls
built-in and there Is loads of Cup-
i board space.
Honor System for Lote Leaves
The dorms will be very smarts
when they are finished. There are
a few single rooms for seniors, but
moBt of the rooms will be double.
Apparently the rooms will have
large windows on one side, and
each girl will have her own desk.
There will be partitions to close
off half the room, stiould one girl
want to sleep nnd the other gin
want to study. The girls are crossing their fingers—they hope to be
living in the first dorm about the
beginning of November.
Then Peggy told me about that
touchy subject, the rules and regulations. The dorms will bo run
by student government entirely,
though of course there will be dons
there In an advisory and disciplinary capacity. The t'l'.C girls are
on an honour system re lute leaves,
and apparently this is the only
dorm run this way in Canada at
the moment. Just how long this
system will last depends entirely j
upon tho girls. It seems to me that j
tilts is a very sensible system. It'
assumes that the girls have some
common sense, and I thihk that
such a system should prove to bo
more satisfactory than one which
has strict rules and regulations,
because you automatically want, to
break them.

Burke knows that Whitman has
their star passing quarterback Cal

Whitman will be up with many
of their veterans from the 11)49

UBC's "rapidly improving
soccer team will play their
first league e game of the season
Saturday, when they clash
with the South.Hill squad at
2:30 pm. on South Hill Memorial Park grounds.
The two groups have been arch
rivals from "way back". As a result, the irame should prove to be
keenly contested.
"We have had better than average turnouts for /our early practices these past few weeks," said
team   manager  Kugene  Smith.
"With these new men around
Ihe nucleus formed by such returning talent as Hob Moulds, Jim
Foster, 1)111 Popowltch, Don Rem-
pon, and Bill Walter, we have the
makings of a team far stronger
than any fielded by the university
these  last  few  years.'
Judging by this statement, and
the fact that Ivan Carr may be In
step for the first game, provided
that his position is clarified In time,
there Is a better than average
chance that soccer laurels will be
brought to the university thl.s year.

displays at colleges in Washington
and Oregon.
They put on demonstration at

Tennis Boss Gamlin
"If many more turn out, we'll have to split the club in halt
and coach two nights a week instead of one. I'll be here all
night with a crowd this size!"
This was word received by the
Ubyssey from tennis club mentor
Colin Gamlin when nearly r>0 students turned out to receive coaching.
In their general organization
meeting, Ken Fawcus, a member
of last year's championship Intercollegiate tennis team, was elect
ed president with Duree Stewart
acting  as  secretary-treasurer.
And In the words of club officials, "lt was a tremendous start
for a  newly-formed club.'
Further boost for the group was
received when word came through
that three new courts have been
allotted upon completion of the
university's War Memorial Gymnasium..
Miss l.eenilng, assistant professor of Womens athletics on the
campus has agreed to coach the
women's team.
As a result, plans are being laid
for an inter-collegiate tennis conference this season. Both men's
and women's squads wjll be selected within the next two weeks.
Coach Gamlin will conduct individual workouts for team members.
A  Ladder  Tournament   for  both
male and female aspirants will begin next week with prizes being
offered for winners. -
Rule and regulations governing
the group are noted on notice
boards in the gymnasium.
Practice sessions continue in the
field at tbe allotted times.
The call  It out.
Thirteen men are still needed
to fill positions as managers on
either basketball, English rugby
or boxing teams.
And, in return for services rendered, trips north, south, east,
and west will be provided.
No concrete experience is necessary, since students interested
would be merely filling junior
positions, UBC's athletic mentors
advised the Ubyssey.
All those Interested in turning
out for the Thunderbird Swimming
team are asked to attend a meeting in the Hrock stage room on
Friday at  12: M0 p.m.
