No. 42
Two students of the University of
British Columbia were found guilty
of infractions of Article XXIV of the
Alma Mater Society code at the second sitting of the Student Discipline
Committee in Brock Hall stage room
Wednesday night.
Tom Gray, second-year Artsman,
pleaded guilty to an infraction of the
regulation governing students playing
on teams outside the University. Gray
admitted having played for the New
Westminster Adanacs basketball team
presenting what he and his counsel
termed "mitigating circumstances in
tile case."
Second-year commerceman Dick
Stewart pleaded "not guilty" to similar charges laid against him by the
Gray received a suspended sentence
after a 20-minute deliberation by the
committee. Following Stewart's trial,
the committee found the soccer player guilty on the testimony of two
witnesses produced by prosecutor
Charles "Chuck" Wills, first-year
law student.
Wills' witnesses testified to having
seen Stewart play for the Colllngwood
soccer club against a University team
last December.
Both defendants asked for leniency
or. the grounds of the circumstances
surrounding their actions. Gray's
counsel, T. K. "Tom" Fisher, second-
year law student, offered statistics to
show that for his client to play on
the Chiefs basketball team, the latter
would have to spend all but nine of
his SMI veteran's (allowance each
Counsel also stressed the point that
Gray would have to travel 80 miles,
making two return trips dally from
his New Westminster home in order
to practice with a university team.
Gray later pleaded on his own behalf, submitting evidence that he
was fully willing but quite unable
to turn out for the Chiefs team.
Stewart showed some consternation
following the evidence against him
submitted by the prosecution. Following his reply, prosecution pointed out
that Stewart was not proving himself not guilty, but the reverse. Prosecution stated that Stewart's reply
was not proof of the soccer player's
not being guilty, 'but rather a plea
for leniency under the circumstances.
Charges; Convicts
MAD Negligence Charged
By Discipline Committee
Charges that the Men's Athletic Directorate of the University of British Columbia is guilty of "negligence and inconsistency in the administration of Article, XXIV of the Alma Mater
Society Code" were made by the UBC Discipline Committee
following a meeting in Brock Hall Wednesday night.
Grounds for the Committee's charges were that the trials
of two UBC students for infraction of the article would have
been unnecessary had the MAD investigated the causes more
fully before bringing the accused students to light.

University of British Columbia
Jokers, in their first typical Joker

staged a noon hour show yesterday
in the Cafeteria to publicize the

In the cafeteria, Ace Joker Dave
Hayward announced the purpose of
their demonstration and introduced
four white-coated "doctors" who
immediately looked over the audience for a suitable patient. A young
student, racked by a horrible cough
was finally dragged to the top of the
Joker table and preparations for an
old time X-Ray began.
The luckless patient was stripped
to the waist, his chest given a coating
of shaving cream with a huge calcimine brush and then carefully
shaved. Meanwhile another "doctor"
listened to the beat of his heart with
a stethescope and a third pumped air
into his lungs with a tire pump.
Preparations were finally completed
and with a small kodak the fourth
doctor took the X-Ray. Immediately
the patients cough ceased and he
jumped down from the table completely cured.

he said.
Grant Livingstone stressed that he
was running for president's office as
a student, not as a legionnaire.
With respect to students playing
with outside sports teams, Livingstone
said that, "if circumstances warrant,
they should be allowed to play for
local teams."
In the event of being elected AMS
Treasurer, Bob Harwood promised to
continue last year's policy of greater
control over student funds.
To ensure that the pass system fund
would be used up by the end of the
year he would arrange during the
summer for the appearance of concert artists on the campus.
John Fleming, last-minute entry
into the treasury race, expressed dissatisfaction with the "way things
were run in the Student Council."
"The average student does not get
his full $15-worth from his AMS

Student apathy towards their administration was the result of too
little publicity given to Council activities, he said.

Keith Macdonald, president of the

charges of the Discipline Committee
upon reading the statement on Thursday.
In reply, Macdonald stated that the
MAD had taken steps to prevent infraction of the code by the students
"The MAD inteiviewed the (accused) students concerning Hie natter
as well as notifying them by mail of
the steps necessary for them to take
in order to obtain permission to play

Replying to the charges of the
MADs "Inconsistency", Macdonald
said, "The accepted policy of the MAD
is that anyone wishing to play on outside teams can do so if he fails to make
the Varsity team he tries out for and
then applies for permission to play

by the members of the Discipline

Trade Board
Hears Meds
At the request of the Nanaimo Board
of Trade, two pre-medical students
of the University of British Columbia
left Thursday night to lay the case of
575 fellow students and the medical
school before the board.
The two representatives, Pat Fowler
and Boh Gardiner, were scheduled to
address a meeting including the Nanaimo Board of Trade and president of
the Boards of Trade In B. C.
Since the Pre-medical Undergraduate Society has been seeking the
support of the trade boards to their
campaign, the invitation looked
"promising", according to a member
of the PMUS executive.
"This may mean that the Btoards of
Trade might become interested in the
issue," he said.
The invitation was extended by G.
H. Benwell, president of the Nanaimo
board through Bob Gardiner, a second
year Pre-medical student from Nanaimo who has been active in the
medical drive.
Gardner is described by the PMUS
official as "having done a lovely job
of button-holing people and approaching the board." He wangled the invitation after a week of campaigning.
In laying their case before this
Board of Trade, the pre-medical students hope eventually to gain province-wide support and help to attain
their immediate objective, "to get the
issue pushed through the legislature,"
the PMUS spokesman said.
Bob Harwood has been elected Treasurer of the 1947-48
University of British Columbia Student Council by acclamation
owing to the withdrawal from the race of rival candidate John
In an open letter to his nominators and to the student
body, Fleming stated, "Certain obstacles I had not anticipated
have appeared since my nomination. I consider them of such
importance as to prevent my running for office."

those who have nominated him for
AMS treasurer and to assure them
that his decision was a hard one to
make and not lightly considered.
Harwood was this year's Junior
Member of the Council.
The position of President of the
Alma Mater Society is disputed by
three candidates, all veterans and by
coincidence representing each of the
three Services: Bill McKay, Cliff Greer
and Grant Livingstone.
Bill McKay is a naval veteran.
Enlisting at eighteen, he took an
eight-month engineering (course at
Calgary and was then posted to
Halifax. He went to sea aboard a
corvette on North Atlantic convoy
On the campus, McKay is vice-
president of the Economics Society,
There is an immediate necessity for
asking the government to allocate
funds now, he pointed out.
Other groups to be approached include B.C. doctors, the UBC Alumni
Association, various labor organizations, and the Legislative Assembly
Pre-meds have already been promised backing from the B.C. branches of
the Canadian I<egion. Following the
lead of UBC branch 72, the Legionnaires have pledged support to any
drive which will help to establish
the school by 1948.

It is unfortunate that downtown newspapers
hiave irresponsibly decided to slant their so-
called news columns towards playing up the
supposed political flavor of the current Alma
Mater Society elections. It is to be hoped that
students will not be misled by the half-truths.
. Undeniably, certain of the candidates in the
AMS elections have serious affiliations with
actual political parties active in federal, pro-
' trifacial; or municipal fields. Undoubtedly, some
of those would-be Council officials may be
under the delusion that they could practise
their politics as student executives.
But to imagine that this idea should be taken
seriously or that the campaigns are being
waged on a strict political basis is extremely
Even if the candidates themselves decided
to break their unspoken gentleman's agreement and inject their politics into their campaigns there would still not be any logical
reason for the voters to make their decisions
on the basis of social and economic views held
by the nominees.
The simple reason is that there just is not
the opportunity for social and political theories
to make any great difference in the management of the Alma Mater Society. When it comes
right down to it, even a Council's views on
political activity on the campus are a relatively
minor part of the year's work.
Whether or not next year's Council is a good
or bad one will not depend upon any member's
affiliation with any political party. There is
much routine work to be done, much limitation
within the constitution, and little opportunity
for the Council, itself, to make any major
changes to that constitution. Only a Council
composed overwhelmingly of members with
one, definite political outlook, determined to
change the AMS constitution to suit their aims,
could cause any serious worry in this regard.
Even then, it must be remembered that a
general meeting of the Alma Mater Society
has the final say.
The student voters, therefore, should not be
worried by talk about politics entering the
campaign, even if the campaigners themselves
have any false ideas about the possibilities.
When members of the Alma Mater Society
place their votes in the next few weeks, they
would be better advised to make their decision
on the basis of the sort of a job on student
affairs they think can be done by the candidates. They can base their opinions on what
they know of the candidates' previous record
and of their abilities.

Oh, Georgia boose is mighty fine booze,

For Hell has, indeed broke loose in Georgia.
You know, kiddies, sometimes we have very
grave doubts upon the advisability of urging
you to pay more heed to your elders. Because
frankly, little ones, your elders sometimes fall
just a teensy-weensy bit short of that old golden
standard. Sorry to have to say that, but it's true.
We refer, of course, to that veritable Gin Lane
of gubernatorial golliwogism; the current battle
toward the throne of Georgia now being waged
by one Hummon (Herman) Talmadge, that
somewhat matted hair of that biting dawg, the
(ate "Old Gene" Talmadge (God rest his soul)
Those of you who can read probably know
hold Old Gene propelled hisself by his braces
back into the office vacated by the retiring
Governor, Ellis Arnall.
Anyhaow, no sooner did Old Gene get his
victorious fist out of the locked and bolted
ballot-boxes than he sickened, staggered and
departed from this earth to fill a Higher Office.
The Constitution of the State of Georgia, unprepared for such ingratitude, proved useless in
the emergency, and thus it comes about that
OW Gene's son, Hummon, the retiring Governor and the Lieutenant-Governor fell into
mortal and desperate combat for the throne.
Hummon, we are told, is his father's son.
He has a cowlick, chews corn-pone and stands
"four-square for white supremacy and tihe
white primary". His supporters are termed
the "Wool-Hat Boys".
The Wool-Hat Boys invaded Atlanta and
the State Legislature last week to "see Hummon get it." And while the Legislature was
in session, they jammed the galleries, ate their
lunches, jostled each other, shouted and spat
tobacco juice upon the marble walls.
The Legislature "lected" Hummon governor, whereupon the Wool-Hat Boys and the
Snap-Brim Boys charged the office of ex-
Governor Arnall, broke up furniture, and
howled with glee when an Arnall aide had
his jaw broken by lefts and rights thrown by
the 300 lb. bodyguard of the late "Old Gene".
Hummon is now governor, pro tern, of the
State of Georgy.
Well, our old friend Mencken once claimed
that Americans had a deep, sneaking desire
for a monarchy and pointed out that Franklin
Delano might not have been President if there
had been no Theodore "Bull Moose" Roosevelt
Now we see a Talmadge dynasty.
All of which adds substance to the words
of Beverly Baxter, of "London Letter" fame,
who suggests that the present may be the
beginning of a boom in kings.
This, says, Mr. Baxter, may come as a shock
to those enlightened souls who judge progress
by the calendar. According to them (the souls)
everything new is better than everything old;
the 20th century is automatically better than
the 19th; and everyone who doubts it is a
reactionary. This philosophy, he says carried
to it's ultimate absurdity, means that Tuesday must be an advance on Monday, and that
11 o'clock is better than 10'clock.
"In short" Mr. Baxter concluded, bursting
with wrath, "there is more bunk and drivel
talked about progress than any other subject,
which is why it has begun to stink in the
nostrils of men, instead of exuding the perfume
of the finest flowering of the soul."

Women's Undergraduate Society is

Cross sweaters. "Only 190 of the 400
khaki sweaters being knitted by sorority and Phrateres pledges have been
turned in," said WUS vice-president
Nora Clarke.
The remainder must be brought to
the Red Cross room before Friday,
February 14, she said.
The room will opened on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday from 10:30 a.m.
to 3:30 p.m.
"If wool is available, sweaters must
be finished before they are returned.
Muriel Carnsew, Donna Powers, Joan
Wilcox, Mercedes Fan-fax, and Dorothy McLeod are requested to pick up
their unfinished sweaters at the AMS
office," said Miss Clarke.
It is my sincere hope that every individual at the University
will, at some time during the month of February, avail themselves of the free chest X-ray services being offered by the
Provincial Division of Tuberculosis Control. It is most important
that the survey now being conducted on the campus should be
as complete as possible.
Tuberculosis is no respector of persons. There is a very
definite danger of infection if active cases are allowed to go
undetected. The most vulnerable age-group is between 16 and
34 which is identical with the age-group of the present student
body. Moreover, all of us at the University spend most of the
day in crowded class-rooms, cafteterias, street-cars and buses,
conditions most liable to bring about infection.
Eighty per cent of those having tuberculosis in the early
stages are not conscious of being ill and consequently see no
reason to consult a physician until the disease has become considerably advanced. The only certain way such cases can be
discovered is by means of an X-ray of the chest.
Facilities are now available whereby every person at the
University may be X-rayed rapidly and with a minimum of
effort. The technique of X-raying is now so far advanced that
it is no longer necessary to remove one's clothing, and it is
possible to X-ray hundreds of people daily. Such a programme
is being offered here on the campus throughout the month of
February. The work is under the direction of the Division of
Tuberculosis Control, Provincial Department of Health, and the
equipment for the job was purchased out of funds raised from
the sale of Christmas Seals at a cost of some $15,000. This service
is offered at the Health Service hut to every person at the
University on an entirely free and confidential basis.
' I earnestly request that every member of the Faculty, Staff,
and Student Body respond wholeheartedly to this survey, first
by having an X-ray and then by supporting the project among
their friends and acquaintances by word of mouth. By so doing,
you will not only protect yourself and your family, but you will
help make this province a healthier place in which to live.

Contrary to your statement, all organizations have NOT been satisfied,
ns witnessed by the recent Legion
complaint which you published without comment. The time-honored alibi of The Ubyssey about serving
without pay does not stand up when
you do not hesitate to attack student
officials who also serve without pay.
Bill McKay has only been carrying
cut his duties in bringing these
charges forward and your complaints
should be directed to the USC, not
to its chairman personally. In view
of his presidential campaign, and
your ability to reach all students on
the campus, this seems to me to be a
very childish, cowardly and misdirected attack on an able student
Bert Shore
Vice-president, EUS.
ED. NOTE. Please, Mr. Shore,
.we arte striving for accuracy. It
is quite in order for you to list
the complaints of EUS, but please
be more careful in naming other
organizations. Major 3. F. McLean,
head of the Employment Service,
said Friday morning: "There is no
complaint from the Employment
Service either against The Ubyssey
or about Totem pictures." Don
Lanskail, Publicity Director for
the Canadian Legion, said Friday
morning: "There is no complaint
from the Legion about Totem class
pictures or about Ubyssey coverage. If the reference Is to the
recent complaint by Jack Howard
it must be menthaed that he has
no official connection with the
Legion other thin being a member."
Dear Sir:
I was expecting to have you defend
the accusations which I made regarding your paper, but I was totally
unprepared for the attack you made
against me. You are the first to bleat
about inefficiency and lethargy in
official bodies, but are aghast at the
thought of yourself being cirticized.
Do you really think you are the only
one entitled to cricize? I mentioned
what I considered to be legitimate
grievances, and because I do so you
immediately make a vicious and false
attack on my actions as chairman of
the Undergraduate Societies Committee.
Your pathetic and ridiculous charge
that I "permitted" a USC investigation of the Totem picture situation
would be humorous were It not given
In a serious vein. Of course I permitted the investigation. If you know
so little about official procedure to
believe that the chairman of a committee can disallow the expressed
wishes of the majority of the mem- I
bers of that committee, then you
should not be where you are now.
If you will look up, as any other interested student can do, the minutes
of the USC meeting for November 25,
1946, you will find there a motion,
moved, seconded and carried, that the
question of Totem photographs be investigated. To state also that I
"hailed" you before the USC is an
outright falsehood. You told me you
would like to appear before the USC
and I asked you to come to the next
meeting if possible. I defy you to
prove otherwise.
Furthermore, Mr. Ferry, you erred
again when you said I demanded an
investigation of Ubyssey coverage.
Again I refer you to the USC minutes
of November 25, 1946, where again a
motion was moved, seconded and carried that the question of Ubyssey
coverage be investigated.
To imply as you have that the
members of the USC are a bunch of
weak-kneed "yes men" who agree
meekly to everything I say, la to
reveal further your astonishing ignorance of the fact that the members
of the USC are the leaders of this
campus and as such do as they want
regardless of my opinions.
You may have the final say on
Ubyssey policy but the Chairman of
USC must accept the decisions of the
members of the USC.
The fact remains Mr. Ferry that you
are a naughty little boy, who has had
his ego hurt by the suggestion that
his beloved newspaper is not as it
should be. Theerfore, you lash out
with a flurry of frenzied untruths.
Yours truly,       BILL MCKAY,
Undergraduate Societies Committee.
ED. NOTE. One last word. You
speak of a "flurry of frenzied untruths" yet answer only two of
the charges made in Thursday's
paper. Regarding those two—You
were charged with going to Student Council and asking for an
investigation without first bothering to get any facts on the situation. Secondly, I do not have
final say on Ubyssey policy—there
i sa very active Editorial Board,
composed of ten members. I still
maintain the stand taken in
Thursday's papfr.
Effective immediately, all letters to
the editor must not exceed 150 (one
hundred and fifty) words. If any
student wishes to discuss any important matter at greater length he is
invited to submit an article of a
"forum" nature to the Features
Tha Ubyssey would also like to get
more articles on any topic written by
non-members of the Publications
Board. Such articles should also be
handed in to the Features Editor in
the Pub Office, Brock Hall.
Dear Sir:
As a member of the Constitutional
Revision Committee, I feel I cannot
remain silent in the light of the vast
over prominence you have given to
the friendly suggestions of that advocate of progress and reform, Mr.
Stuart Porteous.
Mr. Porteous is a man of greet punctuality, the fact that he missed so
many of the meetings of our committee must surely have been the result of an overwhelming desire for his
cultural activities In other phases.
Mr. Porteous is a man of great responsibility, the fact that he took
upon himself the job of providing the
changes in the eligibility rules, and
then failed to do so, must surely have
been caused by the press of other
jobs with which he is so overburdened.
Mr. Porteous is a man eager to serve
his fellow students in their council,
the fact that we knew nothing of his
desire to have himself eligible for the
position of Junior Member is surely
because no one else on the committee is much concerned with campus
Mr. Porteous is a man of utmost Integrity, the fact that he has chosen
the present time to air his objections
with regard to our report must surely
be because no one on the committee
was given a chance to air his views at
committee meetings.
Mr. Porteous is self-effacing, and
interested only in the betterment of
the AMS. The fact that he can see
an attack upon himself in our report
must surely be because we were out
armed with our spears and daggers
against him.
So far his allegations against us
go I have no defence.
If getting down to the very bottom
of the faults in the AMS by going
into every phase of It, and by con-
suiting all those who have experience
in it is dilly-dallying, then we are
indeed guilty of dilly-dallying
throughout last fall.
If attending all the meetings, doing
the work Mr. Porteous failed to do,
and discussing the aspects of the job
at hand in those meetings is working
behind Mr. Porteous' back, then we
are indeed guilty of working behind
Mr. Porteous* back.
If getting on with the job, and getting the report written up once we
had our information compiled is railroading the report through, then we
are indeed guilty of railroading.
To date there has never been such a
device as a minority report invented,
whereby a member of a committee
might append his objections to the
majority report and so Mr. Porteous
was denied a proper method of submitting his complaints.
I should like to congratulate the
Chairman of the USC, Mr. W. McKay,
for devising a new method ot parliamentary procedure. I am sure the
House of Commons would find its
work greatly speeded up by using the
device (which he used Monday noon)
of allowing opposition debate and
criticism of a measure before it has
been brought onto the floor by the
chairman of the responsible committee.
In closing might I wonder how
Frank Phillips could even sink to
such abysmal depths of miscomprehension as to describe our report as
the finest work of Its kind he has ever
had the pleasure to read.

88 Disappearance Of Lake Erie
Predicted By UBC Professor
Students in a first year class in the Department of Geology
and Geography were somewhat startled Tuesday afternoon when
the professor, while discussing the origin and disappearance of
lakes, told them that Lake Erie would soon disappear.
Hie explained that the water which f-
flows Into Lake Brie from the Sin
clair River is saturated with fine mud
and sand. The Niagara River which
flows out of the lake is crystal clear.
It is therefore evident that silt is being
deposited on the bottom of the lake
and is slowly filling it up.
Another factor leading to the extinction of Lake Brie is the fact that
Niagara Falls, on the Niagara River,
is slowly eating Its way backwards
and when it reaches Lake Erie the
lake will be completely drained.
However, the professor hastened to
explain, it is very difficult to estimate
the rate at which the lake will fill up
as Niagara Falls Is moving backward
at the rate of seven miles in 30,000
years. It wil probably be approximately 50,000 years before we will be forced
to erase Lake Erie from our maps.
One student, who was obviously an
eastener, commented pointedly:
"Whew! You had me worried for a

exchange between universities, and
public relations. To promote these
ideas the UBC committee, consisting
of three students, will conduct a
survey of all student employment
bureaus across Canada.
Among the problems to be investigated by different Universities are,
university scholarships (McGill University), and exchange scholarships

It is all very well, for publicities'

or president, but neither such promises nor persons making them are

The chief duty of President is to

providing full opportunities to the
students to express their talents and
to develop their ideas.
Jim Sutherland
Radio Society
Refused Radio
What is the Radio Society without
a radio? This question was raised
somewhat querulously by Radio
Society President Ray Perrault at a
Council meeting Monday night
The general line of his argument
was that since the musical society
has music, the Women's Undergraduate Society women undergraduates,
the Radio Society should undoubtedly
have a radio.
Council apparently did not follow
Perrault's line of reasoning, for they
turned down his petition for the
radio by a vote of 6-5.
Radio Society, apparently, had budgeted for a $225 turntable which at
the last minute they were unable to
buy because of the rise in prices.
Since they were going to petition
Council for a radio next year, they
asked to have the sum of $37 deducted from the budget for a radio
this year. In this they had no success.
Members of the radio society say
they need a radio for "cueing in"—
a process of beaming a program from
Brock Hall over a downtown station.
Perrault remains optimistic however, in spite of his initial defeat, for
he plans to petition the Student
Council again.

Williams Cites
Indian Affairs
Higher educational facilities and
the appointment of a Dominion Government Minister of Indian Affairs
were cited as main requisites for the
achievement of citizenship rights by
Guy Williams, business agent of the
National Brotherhood of B.C.
Speaking under the auspices of the
Social Problems Club, Mr. Williams
deplored the "shortcomings of the
Department of Indian Affairs" in regard to education and social benefits."
"The appropriations for Indian
schools in the whole of Canada is
only 830,000. This amount is spread
over hundreds of districts throughout
the country. The Department of In
dian Affairs has really no program
for the education of native children,"
he said.
He noted the plight of Old Age
Pensioners in the country, but stated
that the pensioners had nothing to
worry about as compared to the
aged native people.
"Some old aged natives only get
four or five dollars a month If married. If they are single they only get
one dollars worth of meat per month."
Mr. Williams stressed the fact that
Indians pay both Dominion and Pro
vincial taxes and that the Indian
people contribute millions of dollars
a year by working in Canadian industry.
He said that his people are progressing rapidly and their standard
of living was very high.
In conclusion Williams said: "One
of these days we will be citizens of
A resolution endorsing the present
campaign of the National Brotherhood
of B.C. towards securing full Canadian citizenship rights was unanimously passed by the gathering.
Mr. Elmore Philpott acted as honorary chairman of the meeting.
Schools today teach too much about
the bird, the bees and the flowers but
not enough about the human being
according to Elliot Forbes, who is
currently appearing with the movie
"Mon and Dad" at e Vj>«<:oy'W
Interviewed last week, Mr. Forbes
stated that, while not advocating outright establishment of hygiene courses
in Canadian schools, he feels that
some source of reliable information is
necessary for young people today.
"The logical place to get this Information," he said, "is in the home,
but many parents are either ignorant
of the facts themselves or too old-
fashioned to discuss them openly."
In order to assist those who have no
other source of authentic Information,

Mr. Forbes, who has worked with
the army, navy and YMCA, is a noted
authority on Social and Moral Hygiene.
He has become known as "the fearless
commentator" for the outright man
ner in which he has discussed social
problems both on the stage and over
the radio.
"There are two principle instincts
In the universe," he said."One of them
is the preservation of life and the
other is its reproduction. All too little

During his career, Mr. Forbes has
found that given the chance most
people prefer to learn the facts of life

manner. He pointed to the sober and
pensive mood in which audiences
leave the theatre after seeing "Mom

Every once in a while, a person sees something that makes
him just a little hot under the collar. Such a case came up last
Wednesday night when the Discipline Committee undfi* *^«
chairmanship of Bil\ McKay went on record to charging the
Men's Atheltic Directorate with "negligence and inconsistency
in the administration of Article XXIV of the AMS code." The
story has probably made the first page of today's paper now
wheh should make those concerned very happy.
At the bottom of the document, we see a number of worthy
names, truly impressive in that they are»the leaders of most of
the main groups on the campus. They are names that are
recognized as our leaders. They are the ones that know how
to run a university.
And so, without a word to MAD, the members of this responsible body write-up and sign a document making various
charges against the Directorate. The one copy of this paper
was given to the press. The MAD had at press time still not
been officially notified of the charge made against them. They
had to be content to find out indirectly. Yet, the Discipline
Committee complains of negligence.
What Of The Past
Well, the manner in which they handled the charge is prob-
abljr a petty matter. The fact is that the charge has been made.
The MAD finally has heard that they are "negligent and inconsistent". It was just about this time that Keith MacDonald,
chairman of the Directorate began to tear his hair.
Way back in October, it seems that Keith faithfully brought
MAD minutes before the council week after week and read off
lists of people who were being refused permission to play for
outside teams because they were not complying with Article
XXIV of the code.
There was MacDonald, "practically on his hands and knees,"
to put it in the words of one of the council members, begging
council to do something about it. But what could be done?
There just wasn't any Discipline Committee.
So finally, after a long period of disorganization, the Discipline Committee came to life. They have set out to settle the
problems put forth to them, which after all, is their job. After a
couple of member of the Committee threaten to quit, they come
to the conclusion that this whole business concerning Article
XXIV is rather distasteful. The net result is that MAD is
"negligent and inconsistent."
A Job To Be Done
Now, remembering that the Article is still on the books
and therefore must be abided by, let us look into the actions of
the MAD that might lead to such a charge. Towards the beginning of the term, names started to be brought forth at the
weekly meetings of the MAD of people w.io were playing for
outside teams.
Now, the constitution is written in the Tillicum and the
Calendar, and the rule is generally known amongst athletes
Many of the fellows who were breaking the rules had been
spoken to by someone but they had their own reasons for
carrying on.
Many of the boys then decided to ask for permission to play
with these outside squads. This was the correct procedure.
Providing that they had tried out for Varsity teams and had
not been named for a UBC squad, they were given permission.
They could also play in an outside sport that was not offered on
the campus. They could even play for an outside team if their
reason seemed extraordinary.
\ A Policy To Be Followed
However, the MAD has a policy. What has been done to
one man must in all fairness be done to another. Any man who
had not followed the simple procedure set forth for gaining
permission was sent a letter telling him that he was not within
the Constitution. Anyone who had been refused permission
because he had made no attempt to try out for a Varsity team
was also made to feel that he was in the wrong.
All the MAD could do was recommend their names to the
Discipline Committee as was their duty. They had done all that
was required of them. Three of the players were interested
enough to ask that they be brought before the MAD. That request was granted and the boys presented their cases. There
was only one answer to the problem. They had disobeyed the
rule and it was now up to the Discipline Committee to see
whether or not they were guilty.
As for inconsistency, the MAD is not finished as yet. They
hope to be able to bring all such oases before the court as soon
as possible. Possibly, they are late and in that they might be
called negligent.
As for the rest of the charge, it would seem that the MAD
has carried out its duties to the best of its abilities.   What else
could they have done?   Funny what one little article (that the
students originally put in) can do, isn't it?

It is true that the Staceys to date

the league-trailers should manage to
upset the student team, the Chiefs
could be in a serious position when

Soccermen Battle
In Weekend Tilts
Canadian College
Today's soccer menu features an
attempt by the schedule-makers to
break the existing three way tie tor
second place between Varsity, Col-
lingwood, and North Burnaby in the
first division of the V and D Soccer
On the campus, the gold-shirted
Varsity squad will do battle with the
sixth place North Shore Merchants
in an effort to pick up the required
points. The Blue and Gold Bombers
last played on Christmas Day when
they dropped a 4-2 decision to the
Canadian champion North Shore Beds
in what nearly proved to be the biggest upset in this year's soccer annals.
The long layoff, however, is not expected to have any appreciable effect
on the powerful Varsity offensive.
A look at league statistics shows
that in the seven games played since
moving up to the first division, the
campus squad has racked up an amazing 30 goals for an average of
over four per game. The opposition
has been limited to a meagre 6 counters for an average of less than one
per game.
Varsity's rivals for second place,
Collingwood and North Burnaby,
have had an average of nearly two
goals against them for each game
while the best "goals for" average is
three, the honour going to the Collingwood squad.
'Midst all this first division activity,
the second division has not gone unnoticed for way out at Kerrisdale
Park the UBC aggregation will attempt to get back into the win column when they tackle the second
place Coqultlam XI in a game called
for 2:30 this afternoon.
"It appears that several Universities

Thus spoke our editor the other

people what is occurring in Ontario
Intercollegiate sports in 300 words."
Our editor refuses to discern the
impossibility of such a task. Why, to
tell how Western University of London won the Intercollegiate Rugby
Championship with an unbeaten record would take that many words. To
mention the great battles they had
with the other'teams in the league,
Toronto, McGill, and Queens would
add thousands of words.
And even then you would not have
mentioned the Soccer championship
which was won by Varsity after winning all their games from Western,
McMaster University in Hamilton,
and Ontario Agricultural College in
In 300 words you couldn't even
mention the battles the Intermediate
Intercollegiate Rugby squads had.
There were, of course, two Intermediate loops this year, with McMaster, Varsity, Western, and Ontario
Agricultural College In one, and Loyola College, Queens, Bishop's College,
and McGill in the other. The Western
University squad swept through all

Finally the editor relented a little.
"Maybe," he said, "maybe you could
just talk about the hockey and basketball, and maybe just a bit about
the wrestling and boxing."
This was getting better. It wouldn't
be so tough now to mention that Varsity, McGill, Queen's and University
of Montreal make up the local hockey
league, while Western, Varsity,
Queen's and McGill are in the basketball circuit.
Certainly there should be space to
intimate that in the boxing and
wrestling rings things were still in a
state of formation, but that last year's
champions, McGill will certainly be
hard to beat. Queen's and Varsity

their regular season Thursday night
by defeating Ryerson 47-45 in what
proved to be the most thrilling game
of the season. Tied 40-40 at the end
