warded to the coming National
Inter-Fratern|ty Conference at
New York by UBC's representative
Bruce Lee on November 28.
Lee chaired the WRIFC meeting
In Arizona where they recommend-
ed fraternities to alter their constitutions to eliminate racial discrimination.
The recommendation particularized further by saying that the
change in constitutions would stilt
not take away the fraternity's "inalienable right to pick and choose
its own members." i
The change in constitution would
leave the choice of discrimination
up to the individual chapters who
would be able to ta^e In new
brothers other than "bona fide
whites" without violating their national charters.
Lee commented on the editorial
In the Ubyssey which stated that
he was representing UBC's greeks
at the WRIFC without knowing the
opinion of the greeks on this campus regarding the racial question.
Lee said that he had drawn a
cross-section opinion from representatives from various fraternities
at UBC and had voted for the recommendation accordingly.
He said that UBC Is so free from
discrimination compared to many
other universities In the United
Stales that he holt sure he was acting ln the interests of the whole
of UBC when he voted.
Lee came back from the three-
day conference with a list of recommendations to take with him
to New York at the end of November.
New ideas for rushing were produced and revised plans to keep
scholastic standings of the fraternity men to a high level were developed.
Lee will carry the opinions of 34
universities ln the Western Region, comprising about 60,000 fraternity men, when he flies to New

Adrift Withdirf A float
We are sure you'll pardon us if we're inclined to smile behind our hands the next
time certain members of the Undergraduate
Societies Committee begin to talk about their
vital roles in student life on the campus.
The latest incident to prompt such derisive mirth is the proposal for a big parade
in celebration of Homecoming next Saturday.
At press time, Homecoming organizers
told us that only three out of 14 potential
participants had signified their intention of
entering a float in the parade.
Most of the other 11 slap-happy, do-nothing outfits are USC members.
Just for the record, the Engineers, the
Artsmen and the Frosh were reported yesterday to be planning entries.
By the time this appears in print, a few
more will likely have signed up. But Wre
offering odds that the majority of the others
are still sitting around on their hands, waiting until it's too late.
If these USC people aren't going to take
part in such activities as Homecoming, thon
we'd like to know just what they are going
to do.
All of them have budgets which, though
small in comparison with some other campus
organizations, were intended to provide them
with plenty of opportunity to participate fully
in activities that come within their scope.
USC might as well face it: ttl undergraduate societies have the money and the membership. Now it's time they had the get-up-
The Engineers and Frosh are probably
the only ones who haven't spent gome time
this term floudering around atdrift in a aoa
of inactivity and indecision. Most are stiU
floundering, and a few appear to be going
down for the third time.
In terms of organization, now is the time
for USC representatives to do a bit-of life-
If they pass up their chante this week,
there'll scarcely be enough M this term left
to worry about.
-The Ubyssey Would like to report lu
Thursday's issue that each of .the delinquent
11 is planning a Homecoming float.
The Ubyssey has been a trifle disturbed
by the calibre of political pot-boiling that
has been served up by student political clubs
in the past few weeks.
.Latest to join the unhappy school of
open-mouthed word-mongers is Vancouver's
M.P. for Quadra, Howard Green. It is with
no great applause that we greet bis wild
statement that Canadian Liberals are "desk-
thumping, yes-voting, smug slouches."
Nobody will doubt that there is much
which Liberals might do to improve their gov
ernment. Nobody will doubt that some Liberals vote yes, that some thump desks or that
some slouch during commons sessions.
But so do Progressive Conservatives end
we have even heird rwmort of CCTefs Who
followed the party line.
What's more, it's impbisfljle to chuck all
Liberals into one pot just as it's impossible
to prove that all Tories support Herbie Ans-
Mr. Green might Have made a constructive effort to convince students that his party
has more to offer than the opposition. Instead
he simply convinced students that Ae Tories
are So hard up for ideas that they are left
with only a small handful of mud to sling
at the Liberals and, when they get tired of
that, to sling at one another.
The Bird Cafe
Recent editorials in th% Ubyssey have
been gently prodding the Young Tories for
their "lethargy" in not manifesting themselves a little more vigorously on the campus.
Judging from letters written by Young-
Liberals their main occupation at the moment is the composition of a worthy epitaph
which will be defiantly placed on a tombstone for the edification of future generations.
Such is the present condition of the chjb
that we can only speculate on the nature
of its members and its atmosphere. "Young"
is a relative term. Therefore, in applying it
to the Tories, we can safely guess at thei."

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In our democratic system of mis-
government, we must, of course,
give ample room tor expression to
all kinds of freak opinions. It
seems needless, however, to give
extraordinary publicity to ideas
merely because they are freak. I
have in mind the Stockholm Appeal, sighed by half the men, women and moronB t>f Nor,th Korea
before they had to lay down their
pens in order to massacre their
neighbors'. I have in mind more
particularly, however, the mental
meanderings through liturgical
labyrinths by friend Armour. It
pains (tie normal, healthy, Godfearing, typical young Canadian
red bloods like myself to have to
call attention to their efforts hy
criticising them in the hope that,
like good little monsters, they will
wither for lack of attention.
Armour's article, however, was
the last straw. In it, or rather, under It, one sees a deep and undying
faith by Armour—ln Armour, Armour the hope, Armour the salvation, Armour the infinite. His utter
lack of respect for the sincere,
and very possibly well-founded, If
V>t universally-acceptable faith of
Others, can only be explained in
terms of self-delficatlon.
Wo, who deposit our faith elsewhere, wish Mr. Armour luck in
his effort to find his own salvation within himself. If his divinity
is reaj enough, he might even have
the good fortune to be crucified,
whether by the FBI or by his followers.
Till that occurence makes Mr.
Armour's freak views news, however, I see no reason for continuing
to ram them down students' throats
in handy series of 10 or 20 articles. The Les Armour, the Better.

What ls an athletic scholarship?
Tiie answer, to this question de-
pehds largely upon whether or
not ypu agree with an athletic
scholarship program.
Let us, then, firstly look upon
tHe negative side of the problem.
tt you disagree with the Institutions of an athletic scholarship
plan, yon probably feel that such a
program would only be detrimental to the university, or college,
as the case may be.
"Athletic scholarships,'' you may
say, "only .encourage the 'athletic
bum' to attend university, thereby
lowering the educational standard
Which has been established."
You may further contend that
It a student wishes to take part
ln campus athletics, then let him
do so, but there ls no reason why
that student should be remunerated for his pains. Scholarships were
originally designed to aid deserving students to attend university
and should be maintained as such,
Whet Purpose?
But, let us investigate the affirmative approach to athletic scholarships in terms of this negative
The entire problem of whether or
not you agree with athletic assistance depends upon one basic question. Why did you come to university?
' Prom this question, stems two
others. What did you intend that
the university do for you? What
did you plan to do for the university?
It, primarily, you had planned to
attend university for the sole purpose of obtaining an education,
then, you will no doubt be in complete disagreement with any program that would aid other than the
deserving scholar,' If you came to
the university from the pMnt ot
view of what it will do for you,
then, In the eyes of many, you are
a 'hopeless case.'
If, however, you came in the
frame of mind of what you can do
tor the university, while obtaining your education, then you are the
type of person for whom advocators for an athletic assistance program are searching.
From the viewpoint of athletic
scholarship supporters, there is
no more deserving student on the
university campus than that student who ls willing "to go out and
do battle for his dear, old  Alma
Ixtreme Care
This does not mean that thc
student who earns a scholarship
on the basis of his menta) superiority should be frowned upon; It
only means that the student who
maintains Ills scholastic standing,
while participating In campus athletics, is more deserving.
Certainly such a program must
be handled with extreme care. Affirmative supporters agree that
the athletic bum should not he encouraged, but the' athletically Inclined student should.
The "Nays" may argue favoritism ln the conducting of the athletic assistance scheme.
But In answer to this question,
plan supporters need only point
out the number of general and proficiency scholarships, at the Unl-
verslty or British Columbia for example, never claimed,
Of the argument that the athletic scholarship is designed only to
support a particular sport, herein
lies tho problem of the management of the assistance program.
It should he remembered, that a
plan of this nature must begin
(somewhere, but the ultimate end
should be realized In terms of assistance for all campus athletics
If you are to have a winning football team, otherwise your program
is doomed for dismal failure.
It must therefore he understood
that no tnio definition of an athletic scholarship exists. No one person can say what an athletic scholarship is or Is not.
Only a fool would sit down and
attempt to draft an iron-clad definition for this term, hut it takes
an Intelligent person to draft an
adequate interpretation.
In the mind of tills writer, tliQ
"Ayes''   have  it.

newcomers Peter Scott, who played
with Kerrisdale, Is developing fast,
and will, in all probability, he In
the starting lineup. Bob Peebles
and Mai Hughes are the other aspirants contending for position.
Forward lines have been juggled
In an endeavour to obtain greater
scoring punch. Haas Young has
moved up to right wing flanking
centre Clare Drake and port slclei
Bob Lindsay, This line was responsible' for both goals in Nanaimo, and should rate as one of the
best forward lines in I'BC history.
Gunner Bailey lias been moved
into centre from his former right
wing position. Move was'made to
consolidate tho second line and to
take advantage of his outstanding
playmaking ability.
Ho centres n line with rookies
Mac Carpenter and Al Hood on
the wings. Trio will make up In
hustle what Ihey may lack In finesse.
Third attacking unit will find another Kerrisdale product at. centre.
Ih; is Ken Hole, a sniooth-skutlng
performer. Hob Coiiplund who was
with Kerrisdale juniors lust season

Braves First Win
A 10-polnt drive In last eight
minutes of play gave UBC Intermediate A Braves a decisive 38-29
victory over the Arctic Club in
King Edward Gym Thursday
Eight minutes to go and UBC
led 28-27 with Mioth teams playing
loose ball. Tightening their defence, Braves allowed Arctics only
2 points in those last minutes,
both on foul shots, whilst finding
the hoop for 10.
First blood was drawn by Herb
Forward of the Braves on a foul,
only to have Harry Johnson of
the Arctics tie it up the same way
a minute later. At the end of the
half Arctics led 1S-17.
Second half, except, for those
few exciting minutes was a repetition of the first with both teams
within a point or two or one another.
Don Grlsdale led the way for the
winners with Hi points.
UBC's rowing start was worked to perfection at Coal Harbor on Saturday when the home crew jumped to a one-half
length lead in the first ten seconds of their race with the Oregon
State College Beavers. Lead was never relinquished throughout
the contest. <*~
At the one mile marker, Thunderbirds moved ahead by a full-
length, and from thut point, their
margin steadily increased.
Coming into the stretch drive
under the guiding oar of stroke
Don Robertson, the UBC eight stepped up the pace to increase their
lead by three lengths.
During the last 100 yards, the
number seven man of the visiting
crew had trouble with his rigging,
breaking an oarlock, but ln spite
of the fact that OSC had to slow
their pace to a one-half stroke, race
could never have told a different

four got'an early jump on UBC's

Grudge Hoop Lead
Goes to Soph Crew
Although tbe How of blood was
not as profuse as previously anticipated, the flow of baskets was
by no means absent as Sophs took
a 5-1 hoop series lead by downing'
the Freshmen crew ,'12-28 in the
gymnasium   Friday.

forward Ron Blssett tallied 12
counters, while Brian Upson led
the winners with nine.
Most eviting play came in the
lasl minute of regulation lime when
Sophs surged to a :*2-2a lead, only
to .see it dwindle by five points,
seconds before the filial  whistle.
No penalty was muled out to losing officials. '

Chief Rugger Team
Drops Burnaby For
Second Season Win
UBC Chiefs scored a decisive
11 points against the North
Shore squad's somewhat questionable 5 points in a ruggetl
Miller Cup game last Saturday
at North Vancouver.
The Birds have tightened up considerably since their last games as
was evidenced by the fact that
they were rarely threatened, and
outplayed the Reds throughout the
Three-line man Jerry Main dribbled the ball 40 yards and fell on
it to make the score 3-0. Convort
was missed, Immediately afterwards, John Newton, right wing,
went over for the second try following a perfect three-line passing
attack. This time Austin Taylor
completed the convert.
Near the end of tho period, Chiefs
were given another chance to score
when they were awarded a penalty
kick, and once again Taylor put
the ball between the crossbars. «
The second half was rather on
the rough side with flailing boots
occasionally connecting with the
heads of players rather than with
the ball. About the half-way mark
North Shore was awarded a technical try because of "obstruction" by
the Chiefs. Ray Qraut converted
to give them their five points.
In other tilts, second division
Braves slogged to a 3-all He with
Rowing Olub.
Floundering about on the muddy
field at. Douglas, Park, neither
team could ?et started In the first
half, and, exeeptM'or a breakaway
try by Rowing Club's Bob Lyman,
the period was uninspiring.
Other team in this league, Tomahawks, beat ExBrltahnia .'!-0.
From start to finish, UBC and
OSC rowed stroke for stroke. Entering the final phase of the race,
the visiting four faltered slightly,
but the damaging early lead was
too much for the home crew to
"With the amount of rowing ex»
perlence in the UBC boat compar*
ed to the Beaver crew," said assistant coach Bruce Garvie, "noth;
Ing but praise can be offered td
the ThupderbirdB for the showing
they made."
Lack of equipment, the team's
nemesis, hampered UBC a field
day pn the water. Only two fours
were serviceable for the Froah-
Vancouver Rowing Club battle, and
as a result, one university group
had to watch from the sidelines
while their fellow oarsmen absorbed a heart-breaking loss to the ex*
Varsity team.
Rowing   Clubbers   garnered   a
three-quarters of a length victory.
