Fees Will  Be Upped By Spring
Three campus clubs, suspended from the AMS last
Monday, were unofficially reinstated later this week.
United Nations Club, Student Liberal Club and Varsity Outdoor Club were suspended from the AMS by the
Student Council for failing to
file a copy of their constitutions with the AMS office.
Dick Underhill, AMS vice-
president, states that for all
practical purposes the Clubs
have been reinstated since
they have now submitted
copies of their constitutions.
The re-instatement will be
made official at the next Executive Committee meeting.
New Pool
A special university committee under the chairmanship of
Dr. Gordon Shrum will meet
today to make final arrangements for the $280,000 British
Empire Games swimming pool
which is to be built on the campus.
Excavation at the pool site
adjacent to Memorial Gymnasium is expected to begin early
next week.
Actual size and design of the
pool will be decided upon today by the committee. The contract for construction will be
President Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie hinted that short-cuts
may have to be taken in order
to build the pool with the money
John Springer, student representative on the pool committee,
said students will definitely not
be asked to help finance the
BEG has allotted $300,000 for
the pool, but $21,000 of this has
been used to pay architects'
"Through the efforts of Percy
Norman and his peoples' committee," Springer said, "the
pool has been held up for at
least eight months."
The peoples' committee is a
group of citizens who demanded
the pool be built in Vancouver's
Riley Park Instead of UBC.
They are now asking that a
second pool be built in Vancouver.

Entertainment for the work-
ingman in B.C. pubs is worth
lobying for, agreed members ol'
a panel discussion on "The New
B.C. Liquor Act," which met in
Arts 100 yesterday noon.
Panel members and thc audience also agreed that liquor presents one of the world's greatest
social problems, but opinion as
to whether BC's new legislation
on the subject helps solve anything, was divided.
Maurice Copithorne declared
that a solution to he problem
in B.C. was not up to three pro-
minen figures appointed to Ihe
liquor inquiry board last year.
but rather should have been
handled by such a qualified
service as  the Yale  institute.
"There is nothing immoral,
illegal or improper about drinking," stated Jack Austin. It is
the public's atliude towards
drinking which brings out its
evil propensities, lie said. Austin
could not understand why Indians are not permitted the

Campus blood quota was easily reached when a grand total

Thursday afternoon. Quota for
the five-day drive was 1500
The most amazing sight of this
week's drive was the long lineup winding through the armouries. Students who feel a line-up
can be barely tolerated during j
registration week were happily
queued up to part with their
pint. In comparison with previous drives, this was an astonishing sight.

URS Bid For Increase
Foiled By AMS Council
After a bitter, disorderly 90-minute session with Student
Council this week, University Radio Society failed in their bid
to have $100 added to their $500 budget.
A six-man delegation, led by 	
URS president Campbell Robinson, based its plea on the statement that "Radsoc is the only
organization that represents the
university off the campus."
Radsoc was budgeted for $165
in AMS treasurer Allan Goldsmith's $10 budget, was given a
boost to $600 in the $12 budget,
and then was cut to $500.
After Student Council went,
into committee-of-the-whole for
a 35-minule session, the Radsoc
bid for the additional $100 was
turned down by a vote of 6 to 5.
(AMS president Ivan Feltham
was absent, attending the NFCUS convention in Montreal).
Stating that Radsoc now
broadcasts the program "UBC
Digest" on 10 interior radio stations, Robinson said, "Radsoc is
one of the few clubs on the cam
pus which does not use some of
its money for parlies and dan
"Student Council has not
shown any visual support for
UBC Digest," Robinson said,
"the only thing that keeps us
going is the $900 we get from
tiie Extension Department."
Thc URS official told Council
lhal it is costing Radsoc $125 to
broadcast football games downtown.
Spokesman     for    Radsoc     explained that the money was need    t|KI,   n„.    llllmn     |1;l(|     ,,     j.,,,,,,1

Union Man
Gold Strike
"Pen" Baskin of the United
Steel Workers of America blasted the "failure of government
intervention" in the Ontario
gold mine strike situation before
ihe campus CCF club Wednesday.
Baskin, speaking in place of
Jim Bury, levelled an attack
against Ihe manner in which the
mine operators treated the
workers. "The owners are re-

Board Of Governors
Will Collect $2. Fee
President N. A. M. MacKenzie said Thursday he expects
the Board, of Governors to agree to collect this session the $2
AMS fee increase when the Board meets October 26.
Dr.     MacKenzie's    assurance
came after Monday's statement
by AMS treasurer Allan Goldsmith that there was a possibility the Board of Governors
would refuse to collect the fee
hike which students approved
last week in the special referendum.
Goldsmith had warned the
Board might decide to wait until
sion next fall before collecting
the beginning of the '54-55 session next fall before collecting
the fee increase.
"The fee increase has been
approved by the AMS," said President MacKenzie in the Ubyssey
interview, "so I don't think the
Board of Governors will refuse
Student Council's request to collect the increase with the second
term fees."
With the new budget, about
30 more clubs will receive grants
and nearly all organizations will
be able to increase their spheres
of activities.
AMS treasurer Allan Goldsmith has warned campus organizations not to spend outside the
austerity budget until the fee
hike is actually approved by the
The fee hike would be incorporated into the second term
lees for collection purposes,
while those who have paid their
complete session's fees would be
billed for the extra amount.
Frosh Heads Plan
To Spark Campus
Frosh Undergraduate Society
under the energetic leadership
of Phil Greenberg, is determined to make every other organization on the campus sit up and
lake notice this year.
Perennially on a par with
Arts Undergraduate Society as
a non-functioning group, the
FUS this year plans to enter
every activity on the campus
a^nd to build the frosh into a
well-organized unit.
Greenberg and his executive
have already announced plans
to choose a Frosh Princess to be
run in the Homecoming Queen
contest. In coming years they
also hope to pick their own
Queen during Frosh Orientation
Th FUS proxy has plans for
each outgoing frosh class to
form a sophomore advisory committee to help the next year's
freshman class to organize.
First big function for Frosh
will be the Frosh Dance in the
women's gym, October 16. All
upper-classmen are welcome to
attend; Frosh will select their
Homecoming Queen candidate
at the dance.

Astounded I
Letting Off Steam
Student Council had its usual meeting at
the usual time Monday night. Aside from the
fact that the meeting was conducted in a
manner which was on a level slightly higher
than a shouting match, a few statements were
flung into the din which we believe are open
to question.
University Radio Society sent a delegation to the meeting in an attempt to regain
$100 which had been cut from the tentative
Radsoc budget.
A spokesman for Radsoc made the statement that his organization was "... the only
true voice of UBC." Later he ventured the
opinion that Radsoc is the "only UBC organization that represents the university off
the campus." Still later he said, "Radsoc Is
one of the few clubs which does not use
some of its money for parties and dances."
The last statement was obviously too
emotional to be regarded seriously but even
so, it ia hard to see how the Geography Club,
the Letters Club, Le Circle Francais and a
dozen others could have^much of a bash on
their yearly budgets of $10.
The first statement is merely a matter
of opinion and should be treated as such. The
second statement is so far off the beam that,
modest creatures that we are on the Ubessey,
we can't help tearing it apart.
University Radio Society sends its re
corded program, "U£C Digest" to 10 British
Columbia stations. The Ubyssey, only other
claimant for the publicity crown, sends copies
of its deathless prose to every newspaper,
daily, weekly or otherwise, in the province
in addition to a dozen radio stations.
Every university in Canada Receives
copies of the Ubyssey. Our priceless "Tween
Classes" notices can be seen at the following universities of distinction — California,
Washington, Oregon, Columbia, and ... Alberta.
Even the Aussies at Sydney University
breathlessly follow the controversies in* our
letters to tiie editor column. Not to mention
the dozens of ex-Pub editors who gave themselves life-time subscriptions and who doubtless now reign in high influential positions
throughout the universe.
The Radsoc spokesman told Student
Council at the meeting of the millionaire
in Dawson Creek who had never heard of
UBC, happened to hear the 30-minute UBC
Digest one day and immediately donated two
$500 scholarships to the university.
Well, we can't match this but we do recall
one reader, who, after perusing our sheet,
sent 67 cents to the Board of Governors with
the suggestion that a School of Journalism
be established at UBC.
And it is with crimson, embarrassed
faces, Radsoc, that we shyly say—Anything
you can do, we can do better . . .
The Ubyssey:
1 couldn't believe my eyes
when I read in the Ubyssey
that only 255 out of 1,130 students voted in the Frosh elections. This must be the first
election in history that only
22V& percent of the eligible
voters exercised their voting
However, there may have
been a good reason that. 4 out
of 5 Frosh did not vote. It
could be that the 1,130 students coming from all parts of
British Columbia, and other
provinces and countries were
too busy during the first week
of lectues to learn anything
about the candidates beyond
their names. And what good
is knowing a candidate's
name? It is a clue to the racial
origin of his parents, perhaps;
an indication of sex, most likely; and a hint to the parents
good sense—or lack of it;
otherwise, nothing.
We were fortunate this year
in that experienced and capable officers were chosen. Next
year, if the Frosh elections are
rushed through, we may not
be so lucky.
Over A Barrel
Ancient News Items: "Premature valedictory was writen in a recent edition of the
University of Toronto's The Varsity. Senior
student rated one of the top ten academically,
announced his intention not to write the final
examinaion because a (BA) degree is "not
worth the paper it is printed on."
If you ask most seedy-looking individuals
what course they're taking at college (going
on the assumption, of course, that most seedy-
looking individuals are university students)
the majority of them will mumble something
about Pre-Med, Artificial Insemination, Agriculture, or some allied subject.
But if you're a crafty one, you'll note
that your victim has his fingers, eyes, or some
other part of his anatomy inextricably crossed—that's because he's fibbing. Nine times
out of ten your man is enrolled in a general
Arts Course and is too ashamed to admit it.
Up to the present there have been, but
for a~few odd chances, only two alternatives
for these unfortunates: (ie) suicide or Teachers' Training.
Only the other day an erstwhile colleague
of mine approached we on Granville street.
I could see he was a bit down on hi.s luck by
his clothes—they were in tatters, also he
tried to put the touch on a six-year-old little
monster and got a sucker stick in his right
eye for his pains. My compassion went out
to him as he hobbled towards me walking on
his hands (trying to save i;hoe leather, you
As I bent over to tie my shoe-laces he
sidled close, and from that ludicrous upside-
down position whispered hoarsely in my ear,
"Weren't we in Bead-Stringing 300 together,
Buddie?" Daubing a tear from my eye, I
quickly stepped on his hand, and watched
him drop, writhing with pain, into the gutter.
"What made you do that?" he quavered.
"Well dah ..." I ejaculated fiercely, "I
guess I've been reading too many Mickey Spil-
lane thrilleis; on lop of that it was a stupid
move, anyway. You're not a blonde, and I
doubt very much if you're sporting pink underwear."
At length I could stand the silence no
longer, so I barked, "What's your trouble,
by Charlie Watt
"I'm frustrated," he answered.
"Why can't you get a job?" I inquired
It was again a scene of pity, as this once
wealthy scion of an honored family tried to
regain a vestige of his former pride.
"Of course I can get a job,' he answered
quickly, straightening his torn Big Block
sweater with a helpless little gesture.
"Then why don't you?" I inquired.
"Because I don't want a job, I want a position," he muttered.
"There was a time in bygone days when
I could do an honest days work, but four
years in a general Arts course ruined all
that. After all, the only thing I can really
do well is conjugate the verb "etre", and a
heck of a lot of good that's going to do when
they ask me to man a pump in a pneumatic
i'alsie factory, or some such other worthwhile
He paused a moment, then added, "And
besides, after four years at university living
in solid comfort off the old man, how* can
you expect me to work?"
Breathing deeply, I waited before raising my final question. "Just what is frustrating, you then?"
"Well, it's like this," he answered. "You
see, I'm convinced that I'm hopeless as a
prospective candidate for Teachers' Training,
so there's only one way out . . . suicide."
"Well, what so bad about that?"
"When I pass out of this vale of tears,'
he answered, "I want to leave with a big
"I can't figure out whether I'll make a
bigger splash jumping off the old or new
Marpole bridge."
Your troubles are over," I shouted, "the
old Marpole span is good enough for any self-
respecting Artsman, and besides there never
will be any such an entity as the "new" Marpole bridge since the Dominion government
has proposed taking over that little problem."
The interview ended as I turned to
watch his figure slowly retire (hand over
hand) in the direction of the present Marpole
span. Anyone here for Arts?
Editor, The Ubyssey,
The letter "Propaganda
Tools" by Mr. R. Tomoulch, I
am inclined to believe, is the
creation of one suffering from
the same phobia that is cursing our neighbours, the Americans. When anyone dares mention the word "Red" it produces a hysterical reaction that
results in the dismissal of professors, the labeling of students
as fellow travellers and the setting up of iron curtains against
free thought.
We are supposedly a university of free thought. But are we
free to label people fellow
travellers because there
has arisen in our beings
an emotional revolution against
the word "Red" and all it implies? Is this a just and reasonable criteria of what is valuable concerning the purpose of
the university? Or have we lost
sight of the purpose of the university? Is it not the purpose of
every student to seek after
truth and to test that truth
with every revolutionary faction that will challenge his belief? If our peace-loving Canadian students have such a
feeble ideology that they will
become bait for the hard-bitten
communists of bolshevik calibre as Mr. Tomouich says, it is

about time they shook the cobwebs from their brains and

I sincerely believe that unless our individual belief, philosophy or ideology can stand
the test of any "ism" including
communism it should be discarded as not relevant to thc
world today.
Are we attempting to protect oureslves from communication because we haven't thc
answers? If this is the reason
we are refusing to join IUS (a
noted communist dominated organization, I say we have lost
the purpose oi the university.
If NFCUS in joining IUS can
officially sustain the opening
through which East and West
can test the value of their ideologies, is this not more value-
able than reputation?

Beautiful Things
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Arrived at the campus this
morning. Had a haircut. Felt
very good inside. Took a walk.
Saw beautiful things. Am from
out of town. In fact out of the
. province. Sun peeking through.
Lovely day. Beautiful day. Saw
fish pond. Very impressed. Said
to myself — "This is living."
Continued walk. Came in front
of library. Rubbed my eyes. I
blinked. Shook my head. It
was still there — a garbage
dump. Refuse of last day's lunches. What a mess. Disgusting.
Thought to myself —so these
are the people of tomorrow? —
What a laugh. What a pity.
Look up calender for clue.
There it was. A course in garbage.

just by being there," says Jane
Banfield of her Summer Seminar in India.
Jane, now in her third year
of Law, returned two weeks ago
from thirteen weeks of study in
From Paris, Jane flew to
Bombay where she received her
first and most striking impression of India as soon as she got
out of the plane.
"It was the smell." There is
no one definite quality about it,
it's just, as she terms it, "the
smell of India."
"But by next morning you
forget that you ever noticed it;
you simply become used to it."
Particularly   noticeable,   says
Jane, arc the great numbers of
small children in the streets.
But even more strange is the
comparative absence of women
in public.
The women who do appear in
public are all gowned in saris.
Jane describes this garment as
a long strip of cotton or silk,
six yards long, and 44 inches
Under the sari, the women
wear long tight skirts and
equally as tight blouses.
Yielding to the call of India,
Jane bought herself a sari, and,
after long hours of practice, can
get it draped in about 5 minutes. Indian women can do the
same job in less than a minute.

In the cultural field, Jane was
most interested in the native

like the type of dancing that we
call ballet."
"The music is as different as

small problem to the girls at*

There comes a time in the life

there were reference books in
there. There are. But the hordes of grinning sophomore

Council Must Okay
Guest Speakers
Campus clubs sponsoring outside speakers must first get approval of Student Council, according to Mike Nuttall, Co-ordinator of Activities. They must
also inform the co-ordinator of
all bookings to prevent clashes
between meetings.  %
"Some clubs have sponsored
guest speakers without permission," Nuttall said. "Violations
of this regulation^ will be handled strictly."
A fine of $5 will be levied
against first offenders. Upon
second offense a club will lose
all recognition and their privileges will be withdrawn. Their
budget wil be stopped and all
bookings will be cancelled.

UBC Football Roundup By Sardis Pro
In 1951 UBC Thunderbirds
won two games and tied one
for their best-ever year in
American football.
Last fall long • suffering
campus fans returned looking
hopefully for even greater
things from that 1951 squad.
With 10 freshman on the 25-
man Conference team, Jelly
Andersen naturally expected
an experienced group of players to be developed in the
next few years.
The result: Jelly was missing 27 players when the grid
season got underway, 'Birds
failed to win a game and Jelly
is no longer with us.
Twenty-seven players failed
to return because eligibility,
injuries,- graduation or other,
too detailed reasons. A good
number of those casualties
were to the registrar which
is unfortunate, but that's the
way he ball bounces, as the
boys in the back-room would
Although the turn-over
wasn't quite as high this year,
it is still a remarkable death-
rate for a football squad. The
bitter truth appears to be that
eligibility rules are not enforced on football players in
schools which we could mention while they are enforced,
but strictly, at the home of the
Thunderbirds. Which is as it
should be.
Don Coryell, already estab-
• lished as the most popular
football coach ever to tear his
hair at UBC, has moulded a
well-balanced squad out of
what was left of the '52 team
and a good crop of rookies.
A big hole was left in the
Thunderbird line-up with the
graduation of Galloping Geor
gie Puil, Bob Hindmarch and
John MacDonald. Dick Matthews has used up his eligibility. Don and Rae Ross are
also among the missing.
Barry Purcell was injured
last season and didn't return.
Danny Lazosky and Tom
Suple, Bill Hortie and Stu
Matthews, Ron Burgess and
Don Smythe—none of them
on the squad. Two Mikes—
Smith and Chykaluk, are.among the missing.
This is just an indication of
what a UBC coach has to contend with every fall. He can
seldom depend (upon a reasonable carry-over of veterans.
Of that good squad of two
years ago, only Bil Stuart,
Jerry Nestman, Gordy Eliot,
Barney Powers, Ceee Taylor
and Pete Gregory are still
wearing the Blue and Gold.
Only Eliot, Powers, Stuart,
Jim Boulding, Bob Brady,
Gordy Flemons, Carl Saari-
nen, Harry Walters, Bill Ku-
shnir and Herb Hayward were
Gordie Flemons, QB ...
with us last year. Contrast
this with the 25 lettermen
who returned to Central Wash
ington's squad this fall.
A perfect example of how
not to enforce eligibility rulings will be shown when Oregon College visits the campus
tomorrow. Other schools in
Washington have refused to
play this squad for the simple
reason that they ignore any
sort of academic requirements
and even load their team for
exhibition tilts such as the one
you will see Saturday,
Oregon College whipped

'Birds Plagued With  Injuries;
But Still  Ready  For Operation
Don Coryell's Thunderbirds meet the strong Oregon College of Education squad at 2 p.m. Saturday in the Howie McPhee Stadium in an attempt to win their second exhibition
game of the current season.     * ~~~ ~
Still smarting under the humiliation of the 33-12 defeat from
Central Washington's Wildcats
last weekend, the 'Birds have
been working long and hard on
their blocking and tackling;
which proved to be a main factor in the loss.
Coaches Coryell and Dick Mitchell have had a hard time getting the boys to turn out at the
same time every day because of
their strong rule, "Studies first;
football second," which has been
in effect since classes began.
The team has however one
hour a week in which they will
be able to get together at once.
That is Thursday's long noon
hour which Coryell has turned
into a practice session for the

Flemons is suffering from a
thigh injury suffered in last

knee injury he received in the

souvenir of the McGill encounter.
Coryell's one hope may be in
Ron Shannon, former Kits and
Meraloma star. He has been turning out with the varsity for a
week now and is rapidly rounding into a good ball player.
The coach also has a shortage
of guards and is toying with the
idea of turning big Ross Rayment into one. Rayment at present is a half-back but is big and
hard and would fit into the line
