Councillors Unknown To Students
Less than half of UBC's 5500 students
know who their student president is.
Or at least that is what a survey conducted by The Ubyssey indicates. Students
know almost nothing about their student
government, and some don't even know the
president of tho university is Dr. N. A. M.
Here are some of the startling facts uncovered by Tho Ubyssey's inquiring reporters:
Students are definitely mixed up about
the terminology used to describe their student
council. Of 61 people questioned only 26
could say Ivan Feltham was president of the
student body. Only eight of this group knew
Feltham was also president of the AMS,
which is identical in meaning.
Seven, of 50 people could not name the
president of the university, Dr. N. A. M.
Only 13 of 60 students had a clear idea
of when the AMS council meets (every Monday night). Most students had a hazy idea
that council met once in awhile on Thursday,
the days reserved for the session's two general assemblies.
The man who handles the $63,000 Alma
Mater budget, treasurer Allan Goldsmith, was
completely unknown to two-thirds of the
students interviewed.
Only 10 of 60 people could name more
than one council member. And only three
students could name more than five of the
14 council members.
However, at least six students knew
there "is a little red-head" on the council.
(Actually, there are two red-heads, Nan
Adamson and Ann Cooper.)
Typical of 3ome of the second year
students was Jack Cubbage. He said Feltham is president of the student body and
Goldsmith the AMS president.
... who dot man
Gerald Dietrich, first Arts, could only
say Feltham's photograph was "some one on
the AMS".
Jim Keenan, second Arts, couldn't answer any of the questions.
Shirley Strattendorf, fourth Arts, said
Goldsmith was treasurer (correct), didn't
know the President of the university, and
said Dr. Mackenzie was president of the
student body.
And so it went. *
IF YOU DON'T KNOW, here is a complete list of the 14 AMS council members.
Ivan Feltham, president; Dick "Underbill,
vice-president; Ann Cooper, secretary; Allan
Goldsmith, treasurer; Mike Nuttall, co-ordinator; Jim McNish, Undergrad Societies Committee; Peter Lusztig, Men's Athletic Directorate; Nan Adamson, Women's Undergrad
society; Bill St. John, public relations officer;

Dulles Plus Cabot
The sterility and stagnancy of present-
day diplomacy has recently led to a lot of
soul-searching among the morning-coat-and-
striped-pants set. It was not so much the task
of dealing with enemies as the problem of
finding a common footing for allies thai:
prompted John Foster Dulles to expound his
thesis of the supremacy of moral law in international politics.
Even if his protestations of Christian morality were aimed as much at his fellow citizens, the voters of the U.S., as at his fellow
diplomats, Dulles had a duty to dispel the
doubts of his allies who sometimes see both
his "blacks" and his "whites" as only slightly
distinguishable "greys".
Yet only last week one of Dulles' underlings, the Assistant Secretary of State for
Inter-American Affairs, managed to destroy
in one policy statement Dulles' carefully fostered profession of a moral law in international
Assistant Secretary Cabot announced
that the U.S. would support any South American government that could boast of an anti-
Mostly Bouquets
The success of UBC's 1953 Homecoming
can be determined by the fact that there are
plenty of bouquets to hand out and few brickbats.
First of all, to Howie Beck and his Homecoming Commitee. Faced with the usual last-
minute problems, and the realization that
someone was bound to be unhappy no matter
the final result, the committee compromised
and adjusted details in the best possible manner.
Limitation of attendance at the Homecoming Ball was inevitable after the hopelessly crowded conditions in other years and the
Brock hall alternative was a noble, if unsuccessful, experiment.
The parade undoubtedly set a standard
which future parades will be judged by. One
of the best possible mediums for downtown
publicity, the 50-unit parade represented
practically every campus organization. It is
unfortunate that spectators at the football
game saw only the so-called "cream of the
crop" and missed the rest of the parade.
Another justified complaint was aimed at

communist record.
He reasoned that the U.S. must support
even governments it finds distasteful because
"it is not permissible for the U.S. to impose
democracy (on these countries)" just because
Soviet Russia is trying to impose communism on foreign nations.
Mr. Cabot ignored the subtle difference
between the negative fact of not imposing
democracy on another country and positive
support of dictatorships.
Cabot was, of course, prompted by the
very same considerations which Dulles has
been trying to deny and denounce—the policy
of monetary expediency.
The U.S. government is afraid that communism might arise in South America as an
alternative to some of the present rightist
And, if the U.S. insists on following its
present policy of doubtful expediency, it
may well hasten the day when communism
and anti-Americanism face it across the Panama Canal.

Surely a tank and squad of marching
soldiers did not rate among the six most outstanding entries. It was hard to see how
some of the floats were left out of the elite
six, and how others, (i.e., Publications Board)
got in.
Bouquets naturally go to every campus
group which entered a float in the parade.
Also to the Vancouver Police Department
for their co-operation and patience in assisting
on Saturday.

And a big bouquet to Don Coryell and
his Thunderbirds.  They tried.
Most students won't find any difficulty in
agreeing with the points made by Solon Low,
Social Credit House leader, in his speech
given in the Auditorium Friday. First, Mr.
Low pointed out that in the past there have
been depressions, where the distribution of
goods and services is undesirable.
Mr. Low spent considerable time describing the way one Alberta town for a short
while issued its own notes. Later he described
the way the federal government at one time
printed some money.
Yet, Mr. Low admitted that the issuance
of money by individual cities was undesirable, and he claims that Social Credit does
not advocate the indiscriminate printing of
money. The conclusion, which he left for his
listeners to infer, was perhaps that some
times the government ought to take financial
action. Few will disagree.
Mr. Low left unanswered the questions
Breathes there a man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself has said, "Why the
hell doesn't UBC have an annual review?"
Well, as they say in the good book, the
time has come to pass when this honorable
institution of somewhat higher learning has a
chance to have an annual showcase of campus wit, horseplay, singing, dancing and all
things like thai  I here.
The medium is an extravaganza (a good
word) called the Blue and Cmlr! Review which
which B.C. Social Creditors have consistently
avoided. All agree that sometime the govern-:
ment ought to do something. Mr. Low spent
much time framing the questions and didn't
get around to answering them.
Students want to know first, why reforms
made by the federal government are inadequate to cope with a depression. Second,
what are the Social Credit policies, from the
National Dividend to the non-political but
governmental "Finance Commission." Third,
how these policies will be effective. Finally,
whether these policies are politically practical
in Canada today.
Social Crediters on campus have promised that Noel Murphy, newly elected president of the B.C. Social Credit League, will
come out to UBC to discuss Social Credit
theories. Perhaps then students will get
.straight-forward answers to pressing questions.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
In Mr. Solon Low's address
on the campus the other day
he stated that the Social Credit
party is opposed to Canada
surrendering any part of her
national sovereignty to any international body.
On United Nations Day, during the same hour as the U.N.
flag was being raised on the
Campus, he called such an organization a "questionable international junta." In case
there is any doubt as to Social
Credit's attitude to the United
Nations, I hereby define those
words as taken from Webster's
"The secret artifices of a few
persons united in a close design or intrigue, affecting nations, and open to doubt, dubious in nature or character and
not of good repute."
Could it be that A plus B
equals  isolationism?
2nd Year Law
' The Facts, Mr. Low
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The following story is submitted in the belief that it may
be of some interest to some ot
your reader's.
At UBC last Friday, Oct. 23,
Mr. Solon Low, Federal Leader '*-
of the Social Credit Party,
spoke on the aims of his party.
His speech was well documented; in fact, he stated that he
liked to document all his
speeches. Altogether, Mr. Low
impressed the audience with
his grasp ol detail. When asked
if he endorsed the fight of Progressive Conservative M. P.
John Diefenbaker for a Bill of
Rights, Mr. Low said that he
did, wholeheartedly.
Mr. Low was asked how he
could justify an Alberta Act,
(which the Supreme Court of
Canada declared ultra vires in
1938), called "An Act to provide for the restriction of the
civil rights of certain persons."
(1037 Statutes of Alberta, 1
Geo 6 ch 2>. He said that he
did not recall the provisions of
this law.
Section 3, which is the operative part of this act, reads as
"Any person who is an employee of a banker and who is
required to be licensed pursuant to any provision of the
Credit of Alberta Regulation
Act' shall not while unlicensed
for any reason whatsoever, be
capable, of bringing, maintaining, or defending any action
which has for its object the enforcement of any claim cither
in law or equity."
Turning to page 93 of the
Canada Year Book, 1937, we
find in the list of Alberta Cabinet Ministers the following
entry: "Provincial Treasurer,
Hon. Solon Low, appointed
Feb. 2, 1937."
We hope that these facts will
refresh the memory of the
honorable gentleman, and that
he will be able to reply to the
question also posed at the
meeting in thc detailed fashion
in which he handled other
Totem Presents
A Campus Epic
UBC Homecoming is over for another year. The football
cheers have died away, the floats with their smiling princesses have passed in colorful parade, and the queen has
been crowned.
But you can relive Homecoming and other milestones
of campus life every time you
leaf through your Totem for
Sixty-four extra pages have
been added to the number in
last year's book and color will
be used throughout. There
will be more stress on photography to cover all phases of
campus life and student activities.
As UBC will play host, to
the British Empire Games
next summer, the Totem staff
has decided to build this
year's book around the theme
which sparks the Games.
More human interest photography will be used and will
be backed up by modern color
and design. The new book
will be easier to read* too, for
it will have more white space,
better pictures, and less written copy to strain the sensitive
eyes of students.
It will be truly everyone's
Totem too, for the staff has
decided to return to featuring
undergraduate  pictures.
The campus life section in
the book will be more than
twice the size of last year's
and will give complete coverage to such events as the Varsity Revue, Mardi Gras, Homecoming and Engineers' Ball.
For the more intellectual,
there will be an innovation in
the form of a Fine Arts section, to be edited by Anlee
So unless you are one of
the two winners in the Alphabet Soup contest and are
awarded a free '54 Totem,
order your book now, because
next Monday the price will be

Remember, it takes only a

Model Assembly
Admits Red China
Red China was admitted to the United Nations Friday night
over the vigorous opposition of tho United States, whose delegates threatened withdrawal and thundered: You cannot shoot
-$your way into the U.N."
Sponsored by the UN club on,
the campus, the 60 delegates to
the Model General Assembly
convened in tbe Brock Hall at
8 p.m. Chief Justice *Whittaker'
of the B.C. Supreme Court was
elected president after having
been nominated by New Zealand.
The resolution, that the Government of the Chinese People'*
Republic be admitted into membership in th UN and take it's
rightful position on the Security
Council, was put before the Assembly by India.
It was supported by Britain,
Czechoslovakia,    USSR,   Yugoslavia, and others.
U.t, At U»UAL
Main opposition came from
the United States, who said it
would seem like reward for aggression to let Red China Into
UN at the present time. "A group
in the U.S. Senate favours withdrawal from UN if the resolution is adopted." (Cries of blackmail).
The three hour debate took
on the character of a mock assembly more than a model one.

now have what very well might
be called a 'Coca-Cola culture.'
He deplored the lack of a

that any attempts at forming a
Canadian culture were smothered by American imports and
government laxity. He maintained that Canada has rich cultural
possibilities, drawing from two
major language groups and a
great many races.

The noon hour parade in
downtown Vancouver broke precedent in more ways than one.
Comments from the flabbergasted spectators t h r o n g ing
downtown streets were numerous and varied, but all boiled
down to one generalization:
"A smashing success," was the
opinion of Carol Coughlan, 1278
West 38th (Ke. 785IR), who was
cornered by a Ubyssey reporter as thc parade passed the
Hotel Vancouver.

there was an abundance of goods

Architect Builds Form
For Contest Prize
Editors of The Ubyssey's Alphabet Soup Contest take great
pride in ^announcing two sensational prizes to be awarded to
lucky winners in a special unveiling and pre?entation ceremony
after the fabulous Soup Contest closes Nov. 21.
Awarded to the best Frosh

in the much - to - be - publicized
ceremony, the valuable mystery
prizes will be presented to
lucky winners of the Soup Contest by UBC president Dr. Nor-
man MacKenzie and Ubyssey editor-in-chief Al Fotheringham.
The mystery prize has been
donated by an anonymous Vancouver Furniture Company. The
sensational prize is being assembled by architects and technicians renowned across Canada for
their work in the field of Canadian cultural design.
Wooden form for the prize is
being built by Canadian Design
Award winner Peter Cotton, who

stage props on the float before
the parade began, they had to
empty them while on parade.
This extra chore turned the
float, planned as a representation of the Pub city room, into
a representation of a typical Pub
party. The float took third prize.
"The relaxed and informal
attitude" of the Pubsters in the
tableau was noted by judges Eric
Nicol and Barry Mather as they
awarded/the prize. "It was amusing how real the 'beer' looked,"
one judge remarked.
"God, what a mess," exclaimed one delighted spectator as
the pub float crossed Granville
at Pender.
Called the "noisiest and messiest" in UBC history, the Pub
float consisted of three desks
from The Ubyssey city room,
three typewriters, copy paper,
several thousand old Ubysseys
and seven cases of beer.
Merchants' Cartage, donators
of the Pub truck, were given life
membership in the Pub Board.
Driyer of the truck, Jim Ledrew,
was invited by the. "illegitimate
children" to all future Pub parties.

Savages Scalp UBC
In Homecoming Tilt
Varsity Held
Winless By
Royal Oak XI
Varsity 1; Royal Oak 1
Chiefs  3; Merchants  0
The theory that a good offense
is the best defense was proved
Sunday at the expense of the
Varsity soccer squad as underdog Royal Oaks held them to a
1-1 draw
The tie was the second in two
games for Varsity.
Early in the game Bud Dobson scored the Varsity marker
from a goal mouth scramble.
Until Royal Oaks tied it up midway through the second half,
the Varsity XI was content to
defend the slim lead.
Only Ernie Kuyt's steady
goal-tending and the impotent
Royal Oak forwards kept Varsity in front. After the tying
goal  the  tide  of  play
he should be back to play next
Saturday against Pacific Lutheran. The Blue and Gold squad
has only three games left to
play in the conference; two of
them away.
Birds Drop Third
Conference Game
UBC Thunderbirds 6 • Eastern Savages 20
UBC Thunderbirds dropped their third straight Evergreen
Conference football game Saturday to spoil the Homecoming
weekend but, in the process, showed coach Don Coryell that his

Hutch, injured early in the first quarter Was replaced by
Jerry Nestman. Nestman, a medical student who struggles to
go to one practice session a week, brought the crowd of over
4300 to their feet numerous times as he made tremendous
catches, runs and tackles.
The Savages put aside their
much ballyhooed passing attack
and preferred to roll along the
ground, although two • of their
major scores came from, passing
The Cheney team hit the
scoreboard first, passing on a
fourth down while deep in their

The visitors* second major
score came almost before the
second half started as Jack Has

half kick-off and romped 80
yards along the sideline to make
the score 12-0. Bill Duffy converted for the extra point.
Eastern ended their scoring

They marched down the field
and Paraca threw a short pass
to Hancock in UBC's end zone.
Duggy converted to make the
score read Eastern 20- UBC 0.
•Bird quarterback Gordy Plenums combined with Bill Stuart
to score UBC's only TD. Then
Flemons threw a 50-yard pass
to Stuart, who raced 20 yards
for the major.
Flemons also figured in another tremendous play. Taking
the ball from centre Pete Gregory, Flemons found himself
faced with a hole big enough to
drive a 10-ton truck through.
He took advantage of the opening to race 48 yards to the Savages 18.
The run went for nought as
two plays later Flemons had a
pass intercepted giving Eastern
the ball.

Two Records
Fall With
Rugger Squad
Rowing Club 14; UBC Chiefs 0
UBC  Braves  11; Tomohawki 5
An unenviable record became
thc lot of the UBC Chiefs Saturday when they dropped their
third straight game of the Vancouver Rugby Union schedule—
this one to the Rowing Club by
a whopping 14-0 count.
This shutout, tacked on to
their previous 5-3 and 11-8
losses made the 1953 Chiefs the
first XV in 11 years, to drop
three games in the league schedule, und the first in 13 seasons
to ever lose three straight contests. All this and the league
is only three games old.
Meanwhile a much improved
Tomohawk fifteen was holding
the undefeated Braves to 11
points while gaining the distinction of being the first squad to
score aganst the second division
leaders this year.
Despite UBC's margin of play
in thc opening half they found
themselves on the short end of
a 6-0 count at half-time.
Rowing Club Captain and
standoff Doug Smart countered
the opening points on a 15 yard
drop kick and then set up a try
when he spared a wild pass on
his own 40 yard line, eluded
tacklers for 45 yards, and passed out to George Dotto, the
eventual  scorer.

It was appropriate that Sandy

1946 greatest ever team, broke
the ice with a dipsy-doodle lay-

which they retained throughout
most of the game.
Scoring was rather slow for
the first three quarters of the
game, but the oldsters showing
the Bird youngsters a trick or
two in the process, made it to
the three-quarter matk still
holding a four point 31-27 lead
