AT A MEETING of Mamooks on
Monday, it was decided to allow
members an extension to November 23 to pick up their membership cards.
Those who do not pick up their
cards by this time will no longer
be considered members.
ALL MAMOOKS should learn
how the club runs, aid to do this,
they must turn out at the meetings
and visit club headquarters often.
AT THE LAST meeting, only 8
out of 7R members were present.
What kind of spirit is this? To
belong to a club means a little
effort on each member's part. Letters were mailed laat week, and
notices inserted in the Ubyssey—

Disaster Ho
Thursday's Parliamentary Forum vote in
fAvor of government aid to separate schools
gave us a distinct jolt.
The margin, of course, was slim and
there is no-evidence that the forum is representative of campus opinion (the evidence, in
fact, is rather to contrary) but we were distinctly surprised that students, aftor heartnf
most oi the-relevant facts, were still willing
to support an educational program which
could only end in suicide for our school system.
The most interesting arguments, of
couree, are theoretical.
Schools backed by religious-dominations
cannot be expected to give the student (particularly at the elementary level) the background necessary to make an unbiased choice
between the conflicting ideologies which
dtominate today's world.
Religion, however strongly adherents to
any particular faith may feel, remains a matter open to debate and it would seem ex*
titntely unfortunate to leave a student without the necessary means to make his own
evaluation of the problems it presents;
Then, too, there remains the age-old conflict between church and state. Wherever the
two have been mingled, both have suffered.
Separate schools would mean endless wrangles between church officials and the government over allocations and would virtually
force the church, in self defence, to interfere
in the affairs of government.
But the most serious arguments, pertinent to the situation in British Columbia today, are practical.
Despite the vast sums of money we are
now spending on education our educational
facilities must be regarded as minimal.
Many of our schools buildingB are little
short of disgraceful. Our teachers are still
badly paid and often even badly trained. Better teachers will be obtainable only if and
when they can be paid salaries comparable to
those they can receive in other fields of endeavor.
Two school systems would mean duplicating a great proportion of our existing
facilities and both systems would have to
Even more serious, if Roman Catholics
are permitted their own school systems the
right must be extended to mil other groups
(religious or oither^ise) which mey wish to
take Advantage of it.
Jewish groups would almost certainly
establish a system and certain fundamentalist
Christian organizations would not be far behind. Even the Anglican Church would likely •
give serious consideration to a school-organisation.
Newfoundland now has four systems-
all of them wretched. Holland has close to a
dozen and, in order to maintain them, the tax
burden imposed on lhe country's citisena has
become almost intolerable.
B.C. cannot afford to indulge in a similar
disastrous experiment.
Religious instruction can quite adequately be given outside regular school hours with
little inconvenience to anyone involved.
The tiny advantage gained by religious
groups, even if it were the case that religious
instruction is desirable, would be far outweighed by the major social disaster which
would almost certainly result.
Twa Wise
Despite the fact that only 20 per cent of
students turned out to the polls last week, the
decisions one made will likely prove to be
extremely wise.
Those students who voted showed clearly
that they want no part of a student government based on pressure group representation.
Student Council will continue to be composed of members who are expeoted to represent the campus as a whole.
Notwithstanding the efforts of certain
groups throughout the years to split the campus into warring groups, UBC has always
been characterized by a unity of campus
spirit which has kept us in die forefront of
Canadian universities.
Student government has had its ups and
its downs. Students have made mistakes, even
blunders. But the thriving state of student
affairs today is ample testimony to the fact
Let's Clean It
that our form of student government has
The second choioe made by students, the
decision to go ahead with the construction of
bowling alleys, may, on the face of it, seem
strange in the midst of an auterity program.
But there seems to be good cause to believe that the alleys will pay for themselves
and the end result will be added recreational
There can be no doubt that there were
other programs on the campus for which the'
money might better have been spent.
But the money used will come from a
fund which cannot be spent except as a "loan"
which must be repaid.
It will therefore be impossible to use it
for most of the worthwhile projects from
which little or no return could be expected
—Queen's Journal
Well, how did you make out on that exam?
The bus terminus on the campus is a disgrace to the university.
Posters are being plastered around the
walls and benches overlapping each other.
New posters are being put up: old posters are
just left lying around on the ground.
The quality of the posters also leaves a
lot to be desired. The Housing Administration, for instance, could find nothing better
than an old shoe-box. to advertize vacancies
in the residences.
The 1950 summer BCE bus schedule has
been left posted. Yet the current schedule
can be seen only in the office of the Supervisor for Buildings and Grounds and some of
the Tenth Avenue cafes.
An authority ought to be appointed to
see that the bus stop is kept clean. Some
aesthetic standards ought to be set for the
notices posted.
Mamooks could well handle this task. All
posters ought to be cleared by that society.
How about it, Mamooks?

Birds End
Year With
20-6 Loss
Strange afc it may seem a
20-6 loss brought the curtain down on UBC's ^greatest
grid year since the adoption of
tfhe American code in 1946.
Whitman College Missionaries
provided the drab finale, but the
score is not indicative of the game
itself. Only once, on an 88 yard
run by Bob Bratton through the
center of the UDC line, that was
good for six points, did the visitors show any superiority over the
Thundenblrd squad.
UBC displayed some power ln
•the air, btit a seven man Missionary line, designed to contain Puil
and; Lou Murphy, thwarted Var.
sky's ground attacks. Bill Claridge proved during the game»that
he ca>n catch a throw anywhere
near him, when he latched onto
a 10-yard bullet pass by diving
with both feet off the ground.
Jerry Nest man ond Al Easy also
played exceptional hall.
Varsity's only touchdown was
■cored on a 34 yard spiral thrown
from Cal Murphy to Dick Matthews
ln the end zone.
Playing their last game for tho
Thunderbirds, were team Captain
Dave MacFarlane, and linemen
John MacDonald, Tom Barker,
Ceece Taylor, Rosa Johnson and
Hugh MacArthur.
On the financial side, the 19">1
football season can be termed a
success. When considering added
attractions seen at gtmes, congratulations go to the drum majorettes, the two Varsity bands, and
finally the cheerleaders led by Dlcl?

Contrary to their usual habit of$>	
winning their games in the last
half, the Chiefs, on Saturday afternoon, racked up their eleven
poluts in the first, frame while
holding the Lomas scoreless. Speedsters John Newton came up with

three pointer after Jimmy MacWIl-
llams, replacing Prank Gower out
with a charley horse, had made a
very pretty run. Stan Clarke, also

full back to register the Chiefs'
final try. Gerard Kirby converted.
