MAC vs USC; Pub To Fight Censure
Big Battle
Over Dime
A dime to the Undergraduate
Societies or a dime to the Men's
Athletic Directorate? That is the
question—that students will be
asked to resolve at the special
general AMS meeting in the
. Armory at noon today.
When treasurer Ron Bray presented his 1954-88 budget at
the general meeting of September 30 he alloted $3.20 per
student to MAD and $1 per member to USC.
Students passed the following
USC sponsored amendment to
Bray's budget:
"That undergraduate societies'
grant be restored to $1.10 per
member; this money to be acquired by holding the MAD
grant at $3.10 per student. Sur
plus funds resulting from unorganized undergraduates societies shall revert to MAC."
Last year MAD received $3.10
per student and USC $1.10 per
Bray gave the following reasons for increasing MAD's budget and decreasing USC's.
1. At the 1952 general AMS
meeting the students voted to
allot MAD $3.20 per student
when enrollment at UBC reached 5800 or over. This year's
enrollment exceeded 5500.
2 Eleven out of 16 organisations in the USC ended the
last fiscal year with surpluses
amounting to $1299.99. Bray
therefore claimed USC could
well Withstand a ten cent cut
this year without curtailing its
As USC has approximately
2800 members and they receive
$1.10 per member MAD's budget
will actually be cut only a
nickel as they receive money
from approximately 5800 students.
Feeling that MAD had been
done an injustice president Bob
Brady obtained more than the
necessary amount of signatures
on a petition to have the USC
amendment rescinded and today's meeting  was called.
This then is what students
must decide at noon today.
Brock  Hall
Plans for two extensions to
Brock Hall have been under discussion between the Student
Council and the Board of Governors for the past six months
it was stated by board member,
Professor E. D. McPhee in a
recent interview.
So far it has been tentatively
proposed that an extension be
added to the north end of the
Brock for a new bookstore and
another wing be added to the
south end.
McPhee said the council had
asked that the discussion be
deferred until "other matters
are cleared up." He would make
no statement as to the nature
of   the   "other   matters."
Wins USC
Jim Killeen was elected Undergraduate Society Committee
chaiman Friday by a 35 vote
majority in the second count.
Friday's election was held after the first USC election was
declared invalid by Student
Council because of improper ballots.
Approximately 1500 students
voted in the second election
as compared with 1239 in the
Walter Young came second
with Victor Isfeld third. Isfeld
carried the engineering polling
booth strongly but Ki)leeo §nd
Young picked up votes at all
other booths.
USC chairman Killeen announced Wednesday that regular
USC meetings will be held in
the board room at Brock Hall
on Mondays and urged all undergraduate societies to make sure
they are represented.
U.N.   Charity
Drive   Nixed
Student  Council  Tuesday  re
jected   a   United   Nations   Club |
request to hold a one-day charity 1
drive on campus  with  proceeds1
!o   go   to   the   UN   Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Organization   (UNESCO).
Thr request, made by UN
club president Ted Lee, was
rejected on the grounds that
the three charily drives already
scheduled are a sufficient drain
on students' pocket money and
I hat the club could raise the
money   in   other  ways. '
Of Program
A day to remember will' be
Oct. 27 when the world-renowned poet, W. H. Auden will appear in the Auditor%m to read
both his and other poet's works.
Any student having taken English 100 will recall his brilliant,
symbolic poems.
Auden will appear on the
Special Events program which
got underway Wed. with the presentation of two novelty dances
and a feature ballet by the Kay
Armstrong Dance Company.
The powerful strains of famous classica will fill the Auditorium Nov. 4 when the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will
appear under the direction of
Irwin  Hoffman.
These and many other famous
artists fill the program from
now until Easter and the SEC
promises many pleasurable and
stimulating  noon  hours.
The two-man organizational
committee of Gerry Hodges and
Isy Wolfe are badly in need of
help in the organization and presentation of this extensive program. A meeting will be held
Wednesday, October 20 in the
Brock Men's Club room primarily   for  recruiting   purposes.
New School Built;
Drivers Behave
With the construction of a now
school on University Boulevard,
Vancouver School Board has
issued a special plea asking
UBC students to drive carefully,
and watch for school children
crossing the Boulevard.
The school is an addition to
Univorsiu Hill School mi Chancellor   Boulevard.
The issue here is not whether* you are for the fraternities, or against them; The Ubyssey does not demand—
nor is entitled—to have its stand against the discrimihatory
fraternities formally endorsed by the Alma Mater
The Issue here is not whether you respect the authority of Student Council; The Ubyssey has always recognized
Student Council as the governing body of all student
The issue here is not whether The Ubyssey should be
a law unto itself; The Ubyssey realizes fully that it, too,
must submit Its workings to Student Council for scrutiny
and approval.,
This Is the brae: that The Ubyssey should not be
submitted to punitive action by Student Council because of its editorial policy;
That Student Council has the right to take action
against Tho Ubyssey only on the grounds that it has failed
to carry out its full obligations and duties as a student
Action against The Ubyssey on any other ground is
an attempt to control the press. And a free press is needed
at UBC just as much as anywhere else.
We are convinced that, in stating the names of three ,
discriminatory fraternities in the way in which we did,
we did not violate our obligations as a students newspaper.
On the contrary, we are convinced of just the opposite.
Student Council has told us, "No attempt has been
made to dictate to The Ubyssey what they can or cannot
Yet this is exactly what has been done.
Student Council Tuesday night shied away from stating that their motion of censure was made on the ground
that The Ubyssey violated its obligation.
That would have been impossible.
Wo ask you: regardless of whether you agree with
The Ubyssey in it* stand against the three fraternities con.
earned, did wo fall in our obligations to you as a student
Two   Issues   Facing

Sorority   Statement
Challenged By Paper
^The Ubyssey has challenged Panhellenic Association to
produce the names of the "hundreds" of girls, both white
and otherwise, ignored when mailing sorority rushing information.
The sorority council issued a
statement in reply to articles
appearing in the Ubyssey of October 8 claiming that colored
girls were not given information
about sororities.
"There ia nothing remarkable
in the fact that The Ubyssey was
able to find students who had
not received rushing handbooks.
The most casual check could reveal hundreds of girk who did

deadline for undergraduates to
have their pictures taken if they
haven't already done so. The

nor The Ubyssey editorial board
will resign after the student decision. Councillors passed a motion of confidence in the editorial board, and at the same time
announced they would not resign
2. Student Council refused to
rescind its motion of censure, as
requested by The Ubyisey.
3. Student Council refused to
affirm the principle, demanded
by Editor-in-Chief Sypnowich,
that The Ubyssey should only be
submitted to punitive measures
by Student Council if at any
time it fails in its duties as a
student newspaper.
4. Councillors also refused to
state that their motion of censure was made on the grounds

The censure passed by Student
Council last week attacked The
Ubyssey for its "taste" in its presentation of the names of the
three discriminatory fraternities

In passing its motion of confidence in editors Tuesday night,
Councillors admitted they had
"cast doubt" on the* "competence of Ubyssey editors, and
would therefore remove it. .
The Student Council motion of
confidence was passed unanimously except for the abstention of Co-ordinator Jerome Angel.
Editors have since decided not
to demand a motion of confid-
enc at today's meeting. "But
we'l of course resign if the
meeting itself askeds for and gets
a motion of non-confidence in
us," said Editor-in-Chief Sypnowich.
Councillors stated at the meeting that they themselves would

of  last  year.
Spearheading this Anschluss
will be two buses crammed
to the stanchions with wild-
eyed, whiskey-addled fans,
spurred by the intoxicating
martial music of their 70
piece band.
This attack, promising to be
the biggest blow to the West
Coast since the Chicago fire,
comes as a result of "accidental damage" done by fun-loving UBC students during past
visits to the enemy stronghold.
In an attempt to prevent

will ue given opportunity to
release pent-up emotions by
hurling  a  bomb  through   the

dance sponsored by the Commerce Undergraduate Society,
will be held in Brock Hall fol

$1.50 per couple, all local
gentry and guests may listen

wise to assemble In the North
Brock ^asement today at aoon.
Not one, but two parties are in
ihe offing.
TO   MOVE...
We're Waiting
Miss Underbill's contention that Pan-Hellenic failed to
issue Invitation brochures and applications to "hundreds" of
co-eds, regardless of race, is not good enough for us.
We challenge Pan-Hellenic to produce a list of these
"hundreds" of co-eds.
Before The Ubyssey even began its investigation which
ultimately exposed the fact that Pan-Hellenic eliminated all
-colored girls on campus from their mailing list, we asked Miss
Underhill who received the brochures.
She answered strongly: "All girls in second, third and
fourth years."
But even granting Pan-Hellenic the privilege of changing horses in mid-stfeam, we still challenge Pan-Hellenic to
explain why ALL colored girls were eliminated from the invitation list.
The only explanation is that Pan-Hellenic discriminated
on the basfs of race.
This was their only means of barring "non-Caucasions"
from membership in sororities, since all girls who actually
ruah mlust te guaranteed membership in a sorority.
We hope Faculty Council or the Dean of Women, Miss
M. Dorothy Mawdsley, will not be misled by invalid, "second-
look" claims of Pan-Hellenic.
We hope faculty action is on the way.
Who   Cares ?
Perhaps students are weary of being dragged out to
Alma Mater Society meetings. Perhaps they are tired ot
settling differences between student groups.
Perhaps they couldn't care less.
But today's general meeting, regardless of thc vital issues
to be arbitrated, should be attended by every student who
possibly can.
For even if you do not care to choose between the arguments of the Mens' Athletic Directorate and the under-
gradaute societies, or the arguments of The Ubyssey and
Student Council, you sihould guard your right to do so.
*   And this means accepting its responsibilities.
Today The Ubyssey is asking Council to rescind a motion
of censure. Students must support their newspaper's right
and duty to print all the news, tastefully worded or not.
On such freedom do knowledge and democracy depend.
If students will peer through the smoke screen thrown
out by the "would-be" censors they will discover the following facts:
On October 1 The Ubyssey ran a news item giving the
names of fraternities still having "discriminatory clauses.
This news item was short, factual, and impartial. Its objective
style shows a delicate restraint from any expression of editorial opinion. Also printed impartially on the front page was
a nicely commendatory committee report on the removal
of discriminatory clauses by two fraternities.
Student Council has seen fit to censure the "taste" employed in presenting one of these news stories but not the
other. Why? Each was scrupulously truthful. Is truth in
"poor taste" on the UBC campus? Or were personal feelings instead of Council responsibilities behind this onesided protest?
Tuesday evening Student Council contradicted themselves by passing a vote of; confidence in the editorial staff.
If Councillors knew constitutional procedure they would
realize that in a democratically elected government a motion
of censure is equivalent to a non-confidence motion and generally calls for a resignation. In fact, Councillors Longstaffe
asked for the editor's resignation (witness two Ubyssey reporters). Such pressure tactics load to censorship and supres-
sion of enquiry. Wo defend Council's right to ^criticize but
not to stifle news. Motions of censure can do just  that.

Freda MosseischmiclI,
President, Civil. Liberties Union.
Mango Chutney strode into
the Council Room, nodded to
the Chairman and took his
place at the great green table.
He was immediately accorded
recognition by the chair, and
with a swift glance at his wrist*
watch, he rose to speak.
"Mr. Chairman, ladles and
gentlemen of Council: To move,
or not to move that is the question: whether 'tis nobler in silence to suffer the slings and
arrows'of outrageous newsmen,
or to take arms 'gainst the pack
of rats, and by Motion of Censure and then . . . "He broke
off abruptly as noises of scuffling were heard,on the roof
"Crucify hlm!" shrilled a
voice above, and a squat editorial figure plummeted
through the open skylight to
land in the center of the Council Table.
"I beseech you, Chairman
and Councillors," began the
strange visitor, drawing himself up to a sitting position, "If
for I want that glib and oily art,
to speak and purpose not; since
what I well intend, I'll do't before I warn you,—I beseech
that you make known it is no
vicious blot, murder or foulness, no unchaste action, or dishonoured step, that hath deprived me of all grace and favour;
but even for want of that for
which I'm richer, a fawning
eye, and such a tongue ail am
glad I have not, though not to
have it hath lost me ... " The
figure began to sob. "... all
friendship," it concluded.
During this display a statuesque goneril in a leopard skin
coat had slipped in at the door.
'Better thou hadst not been
born than not to have pleased
me better," she said.
She put down her glass of
sherry, moved quickly to the
table and, picking up the jelly-
like figure, she placed it to
her breast, and, carried it from
the room. The door closed
softly behind her.
"Ach, to resign, to take a
holiday," mumbled Horace
Winkley as he nervously fingered his robe of office. "A holiday—no more: for why should
we bear the whips and scorns
of office, the Faculty Council's
wrong, The Ubyssey's contumely,the fangs of despised sorority girls, the apathy of those
we represent, the insolence of
the downtown press, and all
the other spurns that patient
merit of th' unworthy takes,
when we might so simply our
quietus make with a bare frat-
pin? Who would these robes
Winkley felt the Chairman's
hand upon his shoulder. "Thus
doth reflection make cowards
of us all."
Suddenly Chuntcy leaped to
his feet. "And thus thc native
hue of my resolution is sicklie'd
o'er with the pale cast of
doubt!" he cried. "And enterprises of great pith and moment

Five minutes later he was
seen to stride from the room.
A slight smile creased his lips.
With a glance at his wristwatch
he was out of sight.

Why He Carat
Editor, The Ubyssey;
Coming all the way from the
West Indies or any country
outside Canada, it .is logical
that one be questioned "Why
did you select B.C. or' U.B.C."
But some ask no questions;
they watch, frown, conclude.
We choose B.C. because we
hear that yours is not a part
of the country so unbearably
cold (laying aside the academic). It is'true that your
warmth and interest deserves
to be short-lived, readily evaporated when the little novelty
wc offer is exhausted, but this
is intangible to someone easily
adapted to a new environment
of frustration.
It doesn't take long for illusions to lift. President MacKenzie states that he is against
all forma of discrimination.
Reflection illuminates the
adage, no smoke without fire-
people don't talk of discrimination unless it EXISTS). I give
you my sympathy in having
to uphold your heavy street
banner headlines in the face
of challenge of your rights.
I won't weep for the Chinese
girls because their treatment
should make them realize that
the road to friendship runs
through Scorn and Tolerance,
before the citadel of acceptance
is attained.
Thanking you for any
groups you may find, I remain,

Forum will rearrange the formation of coaching and debating

who is attending a National
deration of Canadian University Students convention in To-
rolo, and will not be at today's
mectirg, said in a letter to Council:
"It is my personal feeling that
Student Council cannot and
should not submit to threats of
resignation made by the editorial
board of The Ubyssey."
Sypnowlch charged the censure was "unjust", contending
that council does not have the
right to "dictate" how news and
editorial opinions should be presented.
"Disciplinary action against
The Ubyssey should only be
taken when the paper violates
the trust, of the students, and
fails in its duties as a campus
newspaper," he said.
In refusing to limit council's
censure on these grounds, AMS
treasurer Ron Bray stated council had the right to criticize any
"subsidiary organization" of the
"Council has as much right
to criticize The Ubyssey as the
paper has to criticize council
members,"  he  said.
Sypnowich countered with
the charge that therefore disciplinary action by council could
only be considered as an "expression of opinion," not as a
"punitive measure."
He asked council to state whether The Ubyssey was censured
for neglecting its duties.
Council  refused  to  base  the
censure on any  grounds other
than "poor taste."
"Under the guise of a news
story, The Ubyssey maliciously
slandered the fraternities," said
Ron Longstaffe, member-at-large.
Sypnowich pointed out at no
time did The Ubyssey claim the

interested could have received
them through the means listed
above," the statement claimed.
Panhellenic president Nancy
Underhill stated previous to
Ubyssey investigation that "all
girls in second, third and fourth
years are sent a booklet containing thc information.
The statement, which was
signed by Panhell president,
Mrs. E. A. Robertson, alumnae advisor, and Carol Abrahumson,
publicity chairman, gave "a
small budget for rushing" as an
explanation for not mailing thc
booklet to everyone.
Panhell's statement said they
send booklets "only to people
who they feel are likely to rush."
It went on to explain thai
"after that anyone can got a book
by merely asking for it."
"If they do not get this booklet by one of the two above
means before registration week,
Ihey are able to obtain it from
(he Panheltenic booth in the armouries," the statement contended.

Every two minutes in this modern plant,
a blast like an elephant's snort tells of a
modern miracle that is taking place. Under
pressure at 280° below zero, air is being
liquefied and the oxygen separated from
nitrogen and other elements. The blast is caused
by the expulsidn of the nitrogen.
The oxygen, thus obtained from the air, is
conducted through a pipe-line to the smelter
where it is used in Inco's new oxygen process
of flash smelting the copper concentrates. This
process eliminates the use of coal and makes
possible the economical production of a valuable
by-product—sulphur dioxide—which eventually
is used in making paper.
This oxygen plant, the first of its size and kind in
Canada, produces more than twice as much oxygen
per year as all other plants in this country. It is one
example of the way Inco introduces new economies
and finds uses for by-products formerly without value.

Rugger Chiefs Lose
First To Burnaby
Poor Kicking Beat Us ________
But Albert Smile* On
By Pete Worthington
Varsity's Miller Cup rugger team dropped a breath-taking
9-6 decision to rugged Soutih Burnaby, Saturday, in the letter's
home park.
This is not the first rugger
game that UBC has lost, nor
is it likely to be the last; yet
there is little reason for gloom
in the defeat. South Burnaby
is an experienced hard-digging
squad, which thrives on rough
going—of which there was
plenty Saturday.
UBC (championing the lost
couse of "Youth"), fought back
from a 6-0 deficit to stay in the
game all the way, and make it
as tight as possible. Team captain Doug MacMillan and Ray
Pearlstrom scored unconverted
tries for Varsity, and lead spirited rallies.
South Burnaby held a slight
territorial edge over the students ln the game, and on
strength of the day's play merited their win. Nonetheless had
it not been for the exceptionally fine kicking of the Burnaby backs, Varsity might well
have upset the veterans. In the
boot-'em department UBC ran
a'weak second.
Coach Albert Laithewaite is
not discouraged; he Is just as
"proud" of his "boys" as is any
American football coach of his
"men". By McKechnie Cup
time, and the California matches, the Thunderbirds will not
let admirers down. Regardless
of who wins or loses, the opposition will know that it has
been in a game,—and the spectators that they have seen one.
The Burnaby-Varsity game
was refereed by Bill Dunbar, a
Laithewaite • coached ex-Bird.
In a rhubarb Dunbar ejected
Harry Winter (who drop-kicked for three big Burnaby
points) for arguing too enthusi
Next game is against the
high-flying North Shore squad
at Confederation Park on Saturday,   October  16th.
Week's Best
To Win Free
Steak Meal
A new reward has been added
to the small list available to
UBC football players.
The reward, provided, by
Dean's eatery, something or other west 10th (see ad elsewhere)
is offering a free steak dinner
served up to the Player of the
Week. The battered hero is chosen by'his teammates following
the game and picks up his free
feed sometime the following
Winners to date have been
backfield battering ram and Pen-
ticton peach tree Jim Boulding,
who produced no end of lumps
on PLC defenders, and centre
Ron Stewart, who sparked the
line against Eastern Washington.
Incidentally, the steak announcement in no way coincides
with the announced, poverty of
football players, as Dean's offer
was made sometime ago.
Fickle Fate
Flaunts Birds
By Maurice Gibbons
"It was the bad breaks that killed us on Saturday," said
Don Coryell, staring sadly at the knuckle he had worn with
nervous chewing.
He was referring of course
to the sad turn of events that
forced our confident Birds to
return from Eastern Washington without their thunder.
Coach Coryell's crew was
well favored by the odds and
right to the first quarter horn
it appeared that victory was
at long last theirs.
In just seven plays after
Jerry Stewart firs* crouched
behind his centerman and began to sonorously call signals,
he was handing off to Jim
Boulding who breached the
line for UBC's first score.
But from then on the Birds
were on the wrong end of it all.
Penalties, the clock, and lack of
something in the tight corners
put the squad behind the eight
Why is our team, always left
on the one-yard line in these
close games? Is it because it is
a pattern of habit, conditioned
over the years?
Are the Americans more enthusiastic about the game? Or
is  it just  because  of  the  bad
Let us hope it is the last and
that Dame Fortune will help
UBC break the barrier this Saturday when they meet twice-
clobbered Western Washington.
The Thunderbirds wouldn't
dare lose on their TV debut.

UBC soccer front was glum
today after a saddening weekend
which saw the Varsity bow 1-0
to Collingwood and the Chiefs
dropped an 8-0 decision to
Main Athletics.
Varsity had dozens of chances
to tie the score which had come
in the first few minutes of
play. The pew forward line carried the ball deep into the Collies zone time and again but they
failed to away with their shots.
Chick Siew, UBC soccer manager, explained that the team
that shoots is the team that wins
and UBC were not shooting.
The absence of defenseman
Dick Matthews and forward Stan
Glasgow hurt the team. Glasgow,
the UBC field general, who
makes the forward line and
defensive wall work as a unit
was sorely Aniseed.
With more practise the rookie
line should gain enough experience to function well with the
veteran defense; then the Birds
will win.
Dig out the whistles and rulebook, men, the intra-mural
league is looking for rjeferees for volleyball, soccer and
basketball. t    '
All those who wan'ted to learn to handle men and take
part in wars, but who were turned down by the COTC,
are asked to see Gordyl Mundle, 3 PE, as soon as possible.
Others may see Mm too. You don't even have to
bring your' own whistJe, though in its impoverished state
the athletic department would certainly appreciate it.

UBC grass hockey opened its
schedule over good-things-to-eat
weekend and like many other
sports, success was arf n' arf.
Varsity, despite supreme control over the play, were em-
barrased about firing on the
opposition goalie and only nipped by Redbirds 2-1.
The UBC team (nobody understands the name distinction) on
the other hand was embarrassed
about every thing and wound
up on the sad end of a 7-1 score
with  the  Cardinals.
