decision of the Homecoming Committee to ignore campus tradition
in the choosing of campus Homecoming Queens and their decision
to hold the usual Saturday parade
on Friday.,
The Undergraduate Societies had
already chosen candidates for the
Queen contest when they read ln
the Ubyssey that this year the
Homecoming Committee was intending to choose and publicise
their own candidates. At the meet-
ing the President of the USC, Jeff
Pringle and other USC representatives complained that they were
being cut out ot this activity unfairly.
'There will be no competition or
interest In the contest with the
Homecoming Committee backjng
all the candidates," said Engineering President, Al Hicks.
Frank Carrol, Junior Member,
and Chairman of the Homecoming
Committee, told the Irate meeting
.hat the Committee was willing to
back down on the question of the
Queen contestants If the Undergraduate Societies demanded It.
Both the Homecoming Committee
and some of the Undergraduate Societies had already chosen candidates prior to the meeting.
The other dispute' centered
around the Friday parade through
downtown Vancouver. Homecoming Parade Marshall, Jim Patterson, said that unless support was
forthcoming from the Undergraduate Societies* the parade would
have to 'be cancelled. "This is the
first time that we have been allowed to parade through down-
'own Vancouver and it would be

The Homecoming Committee was
...so reversed on the time of the
voting on the Homecoming Queen.
The Committee wanted her elected
on Thursday at the Pep meet so
that she could take part In the
parade and the Football game. The
meeting, dominated by the undergraduate societies, decided to stick
to the traditional method of electing the Queen at the football game.
The only count on which the
Homecoming Committee was upheld was that the Queen contestants should not appear on the
undergraduate floats. Ken O'Shea,
publicity Chairman for Homecoming protested successfully that If
the Queen candidates were put on
the floats it would detract from

Conference Places NFCUS On National Basis
The unique factor of this year's
National Federation Canadian University Students' Conference, held
in Quebec City, was the great
strength of the delegations and
the tine preparation that they exhibited for the conference.
The greatest achievement produced was to place NFCUS on a
national basis. Previously, all
work done by NFOUS had been
achieved by means of small mandates given to each local university. Tliere was no national
co-ordination of this work.
This conference changed this
practice by instituting a system
of national mandates to be
worked on by all member universities Jointly, under the direction of the national executive.
The three major tasks which
NFCUS hopes to achieve this
year are: to obtain exemption of
student summer earnings from
unemployment     Insurance;     the
exemption of imported textbooks
from customs dutb.s, to work to
establish greater use of student
cooperatives with the aim of reducing Uie student cost of living.
It was felt by the conference
that it was no longer practical
to directly attack the university
administrations to obtain foe decreases but rather that the cost
of board and room of students
should be made cheaper.
The question of the 20 cents
per student levy was raised ut
the conference and on the motion
of the University of Montreal it
was asked that the per student
levy by increased to one dollar.
UHC felt that such a sum
should not be asked for until the,
organization could prove that it
had achieved .something worthwhile.   The motion was defeated.
The      question      of      whether
NFCUS should remain a member
of the Commie-dominated international Union of'Students (IUS)
was discussed and it was decided that lt would be better to
remain a member and thus maintain contact with all student organizations than to have no such
representations  at  all.
However, the Leiden .secretariat set up by last year's Edinburgh Conference to work on
behalf of non-Communist dominated national student organizations, should be retained.
The International Affairs Commission reported that Its approaches to the nnti-Fuscht
League of Soviet Youth with regard to a Russian-Canadian exchange tour had not. been replied
to up until the time of conference
Four   hours   alter   the   confer
ence opened a reply was received
accepting in principal the offer
of NFCUS. The question was
then fully discussed. The Laval
University supported the U. of
Ottawa and several smaller
Catholic Colleges stated that they
would have no further connection
with NFCUS if the Russian Exchange was accepted. The Universities of McGUl and Toronto
states that they had huge majority mandates from their students
In favor of such an exchange.
UBC, feeling that the Russian
Exchange was of much smaller
consequence than the loss of
I.a val and Ottawa, moved a compromise motion whicli accepted
the principal of student, exchanges but prevented any such
exchange forcing a university Into the position of having to leave
This  motion  was pa.ssed 11  to
eight,  without  abstenslons,  and
was supported by Laval,
All universities present were
then polled to see which would
be required to alter their position with regard to NFCUS if the
exchange went through. Dalhousie, Laval and Ottawa stated
that they would have to leave
NFCUS In such an event. The
Russian question was then considered dropped.
Raghbir Basl, delegate from
UBC, nominated by the delegate
from Toronto, was elected president for 1952-53. Vice-presidents
elected were Frank Muldoon of
Manitoba, Antonio Eniiqulz, Ottawa; Don Laurence, Bishop's
University; Collin Harrowing, U
of New Brunswick.
Toronto was given the mandate for the international Affairs
Com mlttee.
ISC Refuse
Following the refusal of hj*
executive to accept hii Wo-
gram which gave him unlimitfd
power, Michael Wertman,
president of the International
Students' Club, resigned at a
general  meeting  of  his  club,
Wednesday noon.
While members of the executive
claimed that, the new program was
a dictatorship, Wertman said th»i_
disruption was caused from within,
the executive.       v
"My executive through their lack
ot co-operation has driven me to
dictatorial power," Wertman told'
the general meeting.
Threatened with the withdrawal
of some ot the executive becuusu
of his plans Wertman volunteered
to form a new executive.
"We have no assurance that th".
same president would not show
his dictatorial policy to a new executive," one member of 1CS said.
Wertman, a Polish student who
has studied at UBC for two yearn,
had earlier difficulties with hb
executives when George Rohn,"ail
active ISC member and publicity
director, resigned last month.
Tom Korlgan, elected publicity
director less than two weeks ago
also relinquished his position at
the  general  meeting.
"I resigned because of personal
reasons," said Korlgan, who later
took over the position of treasurer.1
Pat Brock, a student from Soutu
Africa who held the position of,
treasurer was unanimously elected
president of ISC following Workman's resignation.
The oft rejected positions of
publicity directors went to Beverly
Gartrell and Sylvia Losh.
The ISC, not to be confused with
International House Committee
has over 160 members. The main
purpose of the club Is to foster
understanding among the students
of all countries.

Every summer a number of otherwise
promising students find themselves saddled
with supplemental examinations because
they1 did not manage to pass a compulsory
subject outside their chosen major.
Although disinterest in compulsory sub-
Jtttfc canribt serve as a justification of failure,
it would be a serious loss if some of these
students could not return to university because they were not able to afford both sum-
mer school and the winter session.
In order to help these students The Ubyssey
proposes to start a fund for a scholarship for
the most promising student out of those unfortunates who find themselves sweating out
the summer with supplementals.
The following conditions are suggested as a
means of insuring that the recipient of the
award conforms with the intentions of the
An eligible student should have at least
a Ki^h second class average in nine units. The
courses which h* failed in the Spririg efcam-
iriations must be outside his chosen major.
Furthermore, it is nece'ssary that he pass his
supplementals, preferably with an average of
60 per cent as requisite'.
The award Would then go t6 the student if
he enrolls fo* the fblloWing v^intfer session.
As the donors to this fund will in all probability be students who hive reason tb sympathize with the plight of potential recipients
of the award! arid furtHifr that they may not'

of finding themselves in a similar situation,

worthy cause are asked to contact the editor
of The Ubyssey in order that a formal application may be made to the administration for
the acceptance of such an award. ,

Bad Business
The present chaos in the grad picture situation has proved once more that a larger part
of the business of running the AMS should
be left to the society's business manager.
Treasurer Gerry Duclos has admitted that
the contract drawn up with Polyfoto was a
serious mistake after the grads balked at
bUyihg their pictures at the prices and under
tHe conditions stipulated in ihe contract.
Tile steps Duclos took to repair the damage
were inevitable. However, the AMS is bound
to lose money. This time the loss will not be
so great because appropriate action was- taken
tn tifhe.   The next mistake might cost the
tfs thh Way
possessions. Then we can reasonably expect
that the Germans will, by their attempts to
reunite their country, precipitate a war With
Russia into which we would be naturally
drawn too.
The Germans have nothing to lose in such
a war except the humiliation of being a
vanquished nation, yet they have everything
to gain. The defeat of Soviet power in Europe
would only bring about the ascendancy of
that substitute tyranny (fascist version)
which only seven short years ago we thought
distasteful enough to send our men over to
In our fearful search, for allies to give us a

AMS treasurers are traditionally commercemen. While this position has provided
numerous commerce students with invaluable
experience, AMS finances have not always
taken so well to apprentice finance ministers.

qualifications, has ah insight into AMS affairs

It   was   all   very   enjoyable   to
watch Ubyssey editors go under
the axe every day or ho, to sit
back and scream invective at the
poor boys with the five day
stubble and the alcoholic twitch.
Dut remember that these boys
were putting out a fisclmlle of
the Lampoon.
They could say anything without fear of being misunderstood
or having their words twisted
and thrown back ln their faces.
Under tho guise of humour they
could jump up and down on anybody's face and come away with
tho last, laugh.
They didn't have the problem
of having  to  pussy  foot  around
such subjects as religion, radical
politics, .sex and engineers.
And they were always overloaded with copy. The campus
was supporting close to a hundred clubs and the AMS coffers,
swollen by DVA, boasted a yearly income approaching $100,000.
And, unbelievably, there was a
little spirit lurking around campus activities.
The Ubyssey doesn't profess
to run  circles  around  controver
sial Issues, nor do they Intend
this year to back uway from
national and international problems.
What they do Intend to do Is
put out a reputable newspaper.
If they wanted to put out an
amusement sheet they could buy
the local syndicate rights to
Pogo. And K they wanted to
satisfy the glrlle-fans they could
run Robert Ruark.
Wo sympathize with the fan

permanent noose mound our
necks. We are sorry his theory
of what a campus newspaper
should be doesn't quite coincide
with ours.

paper lias probably approached

Liberals attribute the disastrous
defeat suffered by them on Junjrj
12 tp a variety of causes. Most
frequently mentioned is the Coalition. It ls claimed that by entering'
into Coalition with the Tories tht'
Liberals comprised their principle* |
thus weakening their organisation
and their appeal to the voter.
To hie the root cause' of the'
Liberal Party decline is nhtch deep*
er than that. I believe that thf
Coalition and the recent fall of1
the Liberal Party are directly at3
tributable to the method used l&l
building up the party patronage.
To have a stictog healthy part^
which the people will be prepared

membership devoted to the principles for which the party stauds
and determined to carry these
principles into the formation oil

has attracted to the top and bottom of the party structure a latge
number ot people devoted to nothing but their own selfish interests,
this made the present defeat of
the party Inevitable.
The effects of the patronage

all Liberals today. The powers ln

their original motives In joining
the party but obviously they bave

party (they would say service to
the people), has been rewarded
by appointment to the bench, membership in the Senate, in more recent times, control of the Provinces liquor business and the li.C.
Police, and a host of lesser dividends.

That this vote was not approval

B.C. voters cast ballots fbr that
party knowing little or nothing of
Its Ideology but being sure that
they did not like the people presently in control of their government.
If it Was such a convenient

At1 that time the Young Liberals

senior organisations who sensed
that their party was being run
into the ground by selfish men
serving themselves first and the
people second. (I do not refer to
Johnson himself) gave the then
premier a rough time. The Young
Liberals demanded1 as they had
ever since their organization hafl
been revived after the war (largely
by veteran members of the Student
Liberal Club) that Coalition end.
They realized that they could
have no control In their own party
as long as the powerful Liberals
could pass off all their failures

Tories. They knew too that as long
as the Coalition existed with its
tremendous campaign fund, a large

resources, that party members
would have little influence. Tfie

Although last year's Birds won

Coaches Jack Pomfret, Dick Penu

tremendous task of selecting, appraising and weeding out enough
players of university calibre to
fill the rosters of the three UBC
teams, the Thunderbirds, the Jayvees and the Braves. .
Approximately 80 playeri turned
out 'or the first official practice
on Monday. To be blckeJ for the
squad a player had to be approved
by all three selectors.
Pomfret, Thunderbird coach;
Penn, coach of the Jayvee squad
and l-owes, a new member of the
Phys fid staff, picked nine players
from the scrimmages on Monday
night.   /.
During Tuesday's three-h our

The coaches emphasized the fact
that all players picked will get

Coaches stated that the players
