Faculty 'Riot' Action
Rapped By Councillors
Criticism of Faculty Council's action against  four UBC
students involved in the engineering "riots" last month came
from Student Council members Monday night.
"- Councillors felt that it was
unjust of Faculty Council to
take the matter out of Sudent
Court when it had merely fined
the offenders  $5.
Danny Goldsmith asked whether there would have been a
proper investigation if these students had been expelled. "Student Court seems merely to act
as an investigating committee for
Faculty Council."
Bob Brady felt that "Faculty
Council went over the heads of
Student Court."
Brady noted thai Student
Court had recommended the
fines although they had the power to recommend expulsion or
Ron Bray said that "Faculty
Council did not appear to support the Court. In the same
breath they agree with and go
beyond the Court's decision.
These two stands cannot be justified."
Council President Dick Underhill stated that "Faculty
Council wished to leave the decision up to Student Court, but
snee the court could find no
informants 'they felt that they
..hould take the matter into their
own hands."
Underbill said that "Councillors should put themselves in
Faculty Council's position. "It
was fairly obvious that thc students concerned knew more than
they told."
| Underhill concluded with the
j statement "the student Court did
an honest job and there is no
ideal solution. We will continue
to improve Student Court and
thus  gain   further  autonomy."

Federation   Labelled
'Useless At Meeting
MONTREAL-(CUP)-McGill University has withdrawn
from the National Federation of Canadian University Students
by a vote of 293 to 238 at a general students' meeting.
The meeting was called as a*y
result of a student petition circulated by two ex-presidents of
the McGill student union, Jim
Robbins, '54 and Mel Ross, 'S3.
The 531 students who attended the, special general meeting
were told by Robbins and Ross
that NFCUS is a "useless" organization.
McGill has an enrollment of
more than 5000 students, but
only 300 students are required
to make a quorum at a general
"It is miguided benevolence
to support an organization that
has spent 85 percent of its
budget on conferences and executive salaries and only three
percent oh projects," said Robbins in moving the withdrawal
Reported John Fraser, editor
of The McGill Daily, which has
taken a critical stand against
NFCUS: "The general attitude
on the campus was that NFCUS
had done nothing in the past and
was not likely to do anything
in the future."
The McGill withdrawal will
likely leave McGill as the only

The Federation was rejoined
last week by the University of
Toronto, and UBC students are
expected to vote in favor of paying 50 cents each to rejoin at
a general meeting this spring.
AMS president Dick Underhill Monday night denounced
the McGill withdrawal as a
breach of faith.
He told Student Councillors:
"The action was contrary to the
commitments of their delegates
at the NFCUS conference in the

move, and puts McGill in a poor
Underhill said the stand of
the McGill delegates at the

We'll Wait
Criticism to date of the Provincial Government's way of
providing for UBC's. building program has been little more
than political heel-snapping at the party in power.
Reasonable criticism of the government's plans can be
made only after the bills concerning UBC are placed before
the Legislature, when the government's exact plans will be
known. ' ,
Such critcism would seek satsifactory answers to these
Will the endowment lands be utilised with a long-term
viewpoint, or will their value be quickly frittered away for
the short-term advantage of the Social Credit party?
Will the endowment lands provide $10 million in 10 years
without such a dissipation? And if they won't, will the government give UBC its promised $10 million out of general
Will the University's request for additional campus acreage be granted, or will it be (turned down in order to realize
a greater return on the endowment lands?
Beyond this, however, little criticism of the govenr-
ment's plans can be made at this time.
Admittedly, using the endowment lands to finance UBC's
building program is a handy way to take care of an obligation without it showing up in the provincial debt.
And admittedy, the University would be better off it
it had a $10 million grant in addition to whatever revenue
the endowment lands might provide.
But reference to a "nest egg to develop the University"
is political double-talk. "Develop the University" is exactly
what the government now proposes to do.
There can be no complaint as long as the Provincial
Government lives up to its financial obligations to support
the University. If government critics feel UBC needs even
more money—and it certainly does—then they should plainly
say so.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
In a-recent editorial, entitled "Rights and Letts," you
state: '
"Two of Vancouver's leading columnists have expressed identical sentiments that
graphically point up a dangerous state of mind prevalent on
the Western side of the Iron
Curtain. Both Harold Weir
and Elmore Philpott are admittedly leary, as are many
Canadians, of German rearmament."
For the benefit of any of
your readers who do not sec
the Vancouver Sun, may I state
that in numerous newspaper
articles, and also in my longest speech to date in the House
of Commons, I strongly supported Germany's admission to
NATO, with the limited, controlled and integrated German
rearmament which that involves.
At no time have I ever written, as you state, that '- . . .
many M.P.'s arc afraid to express their feelings on the subject loo loudly because the
Communists are also opposed

Reply to Mr. Field
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I'd like to suggest to Mr. K.
C. Field who in the last issue
of the Ubyssey upheld fraternities, Christians, and the
Council that he take a course in
logic and possibly Engljsh
To cle,ar the ground, I do not
regard fraternities as the epitome of evil, and willingly concede that the roason they are
able to run campus politics is
due to mass apathy on our part.
I further believe that outside
forces cannot interfere in
changing religious discrimination clauses in fraternity constitutions, regardless of how
desirable this move may or
may not be.
What I do question in Mr.
Field's letter are his insinuations. By throwing in the word
Christian, which to him seems
to be synonymous with ethical,
Mr. Field receives divine sanction and somehow goes on to
conclude that regardless of
whether council members belong to fraternities, they have
done a good job.
I do not know how one
judges whether a council member has done a good job, but
I should think that Jerome
Angel and Danny Goldsmith
have done just as fine a job as
Mr. Field's ethical Christians.
Unintentionally, I am sure, Mr.
Field lias made all Christians,
councillors, and fraternity
members appear  as  saints.
I would like lo pose two
questions to  Mr.  Field:

In Sydney, politics are a disease. They are based on personalities rather than issues,
because, after all, personalities are so much more interesting.
An aura of mud slinging fills
the political air.
I remember reading in old
fiies of Honi Soit, our weekly
newspaper, that shortly after
the war, in about 1948, a religious group known as the Newman Society began to take control of. Faculty societies, the
Students' Representative Council, and also a Honi Soit. It
grew up opposing the Labour
Club, which had just been expelled from the Australian Labour Party on the grounds that
it was Communist.
Unfortunately, it didn't stay
quite on that basis.

Of course, the averagt run
of students don't take their
polities quite so seriously.
About June, 1954 there was
a by-election for the Students
Representative  Council   (hereinafter called the S.R.C.)
Science nominated a gentleman called Nigel Conrad, a
student in Geology III. Mr.
Conrad tied already written a
few letters to Honi Soit that
year, and his name was known.
He was elected by a overwhelming majority.
At that stage I was editor
of Honi Soit, and I heard a
rumour on the grapevine that
there was Something queer
about Nigel.
Eventually I found that there
was a girl in Science III, who
owned a horse called Nigel.
Nigel had been enrolled, his
fees paid, his essays written,
and his practical work completed for the entire three
years. As a final gesture he
had been elected to the S.R.C.
That austere body was now
made up of seven women, 19
men, and one horse.
The election was hastily declared invalid. After all, a representative has to .be of either
male or female students.
In Melbourne, a city of earnest endeavour, politics are
taken more seriously, in the
sense that people don't joke
about them, and parties, rather
than personalities are the
main issues.
Here is located the head office of the National Union of
Australian University students.
This body sponsors inter-
Varsity debating and drama
festivals, an annual congress,
and is the official body for
negotiation with the Government on issues like National

Highlighted by numerous colorful and impressive group

However, the clever lyrics of
most of the songs were not justly presented due to brilliant but
overpowering orchestration under Harry Pryce.

Swimmers Face Splashless

Howell said it is "imperative"
that UBC's 12-man team be at
full strength for the Evergreen
contest in Bellingham.
"If swimmers turn out for a
try-out tonight, it will save the
day for small sport at UBC," he
The six swimmers were suspended under the University's
freshman ineligibility ruling
which requires that team members in first year average at
least 55 percent in their Christmas examinations.
"We didn't even know the
ruling existed," said Howell.
"Those men were the best swimmers we had."

Exhibition Rugger Game
Last Saturday, rugger's Miller Cup champs challenged the
McKechnie Cup winners, and fell disasterously short of the
mark. The blue and gold of Varsity outshone the red and white
of Rowing Club 14-3.
They started out as a joke;
a collecton of misfits to parody
the game of rugger. Some joke.
After four games, an initial
6-3 loss is their only blemish.
Saturday they disrespectfully
dumped Tomahawks 27-3. Who
are they? Coryell's Blurbs, no
less; American football's contribution to Albert.
Tommies tried hard but
Thursday's gruelling 17-0 setback to Braves deadened their
thrust. That and a hard charging bunch of Blurbs who make
enthusiasm replace their lack
of   technical   experience.
Tries for Blurbs were by Paul
La Pointe, Bob Homola. Ron
Stuart, Laurie Tuttle and two by
Bruce "Clutch" Eagle. Robert
Weinberg made tliree conversions and a penalty for nine
big   points.
Too much hustle and fierce
tackling spelled the difference.
Korea-vet Paul La Ponte, an
ex-member of the fair PPCLI,
undoubtedly Canada's most illustrious regiment, has joined
the Blurbs. Paul boxes, plays
football, hockey and rugger for
Varsity. He went to a lecture
once too. One of UBC's more
versatile "sportsmen" — but
what else would one expect
from   a   PPCLI   grad!
The SouthcrnCross-less (swimming in Bellingham) Braves
toppled Meralomas 8-0. It was j
a hard fought contest with Jo-1
vial Jawn Mulberry's penalty j
score and conversion of Glen I
Fitzgerald's try paving the way.j
Last Thursday's game also dull-;
ed  them somewhat.
The game, played before 100
rain-soaked eccentrics, could be
summed up by saying that there
were just too many Birds on
the field doing the right thing
at the right time. Rowing Club
played well; Varsity played better. Whatever the Rowers attempted; Varsity improved upon.
A tragedy of the game was
that Ted Hunt, UBC's never-
quitting scrum-half, limped from
the field suffering probable torn
ligaments in his right knee. His
first knee injury in all of his
years of competitive ski jumping and rugger. How long he
will be disabled is not known.
Since coming up to Birds, the
expression "As Hunt goes, so
go the Birds," has held fairly
true. Team success seems to
date from his arrival.
Hunt set up the first score
by recovering his own punt and
breaking clear. He hobbled the
ball, and Donny Spence scooped
it up and raced over the line.
"Big" Bob Morford converted
for a 5-0 lead. Before half time
"Toe" Morley dribbled over to
make the count 8-0.
In the second half Dave-the-
Toe took a 52 yard penalty shot
which seemed to travel forever.
The longest boot of this season,
and Varsity led 110.
Heaven-Sent Spence took over
scrum-half from the injured
Hunt, and, after a Rowing Club
score, dipsy-doodled through
them all for his second try.
14-3, and the game was over.
Thc on-again, off-again Iron-
Mike Chambers had his socks
pulled up for this one. He may
not be the best defensive player
on the Birds, but few can rival
his driving attack and crushing
downfield   tackles.
Remember the Variety Show
Wednesday in the Auditorium:
Totem City Jazzters, slave gal
queens; you name it, we got its.
That's  Wednesday  noon.
Things were a little brighter
for the second game of the Ju-
noir League semi-finals, from
UBC's point of view, but
YMCA was still to strong for
Gerry Kenyon's Braves . and
the Y won the series with a
62-46 victory. i
Braves' Ron Johnston was
high man with 16 points.
Coach Kenyon, incidentally is
reasonably confident the
tough Y club will beat Marpole in the finals, and at any
rate will stretch the series to
a full three games.
