Student  Council
States  Position
"Freedom of the press" and "want of confidence" and
"censorship" are easy phrases to throw around. It's a
little more difficult to see clearly the issues at stake.
No attempt has been made to dictate to The Ubyssey
what they can or cannot print. Student Council has never
said, "Don't print this, or we will take action." The Ubyssey has been free and is free to publish as they think fit.
Yet The Ubyssey is a student newspaper, paid for by
the students, and charged with a public duty.' As such it
is subject to public criticism. Student Council has the
right and the duty to criticize when it thinks that duty
has been broken.
We want a free press, but we want a responsible press.
The essence of responsibility is that the press should be
subject to public criticism.
Student Council believes that the duty of a newspaper is to separate as best it can • can fact from opinion.
We think that The Ubyssey has failed in that duty. And
we said so.
The question of want of confidence is not now, and
never has been in issue. The Alma Mater Society is not a
parliament, the responsibility of those in office at UBC
does not depend on votes of confidence or of non-confidence.
The Editorial Board has threatened to resign if they
don't get their way. But those who have undertaken
student projects have a duty to continue, even in the face
of criticism.
Heavy contractual commitments have been made with
advertisers, with the printers, and with the engravers.
Those who undertook to produce The Ubyssey have a
responsibility to the students to produce the newspapers. .
The Alma Mater Society cannot submit to threats.
Should the Editorial Board walk out on the students,
Student Council will undertake to produce The Ubyssey.
And, with the help of the students, we will.

Pan-Hellenic  Confesses
Non-Caucasian girls are struck off a list of names used by
Pan-Hellenic to issue invitations to co-eds asking th«m to join
UBC sororities.
The list is supplied by the administration, and is used to
mail brochures and application forms to "all" girls in second,
third and fourth years.
This was admitted Wednesday by Nancy Underbill, president of Pan-Hellenic. *

Globulin Givers Give
Less; Might Give Up
Fear has been expressed by Jane Marshall, co-chairman of
the fall blood drive, that student enthusiasm regarding the
drive is dwindling.
The encouraging response to
the call for donors during the
first of the week petered out
Several explanations for the
decrease were fostered by those
in charge of the drive. Rainy
weather was one excuse.
Major W. A. Freeman, panel
organizer for blood donor committee of the Vancouver Branch
of the Red Cross, stated that
donations often fall off near
the end of the week.
He emphasized, however, that
no one's weekend would be
ruined by donating a pint of
blood on Friday and expressed
hope that the good turnout at
the start of the drive would be
duplicated   on   Friday.
The drive was given an extra
spurt of energy, Wednesday afternoon with the appearance of
a good percentage of the Medical
Prize being awarded the winning faculty, the "Globulin Goblet," is on display in the main
reading room of the library.
The drive closes to day at 4:30
p.m. If the objective is reached
it will set a new record for a
UBC blood  drive.
Co-chairmen of the drive are
Jane Marshall, Nursing, and
Diane Alsbury, Home Economics.

Plea to Get
MAC Hearing
Student Council is expected
to ask the Men's Athletic Committee to alow Ubyssey reporters
into MAC meetings sometime
within the next week, MAD president Bob Brady said today.
He said AMS president Dick
Underhill would probably make
the request of chairman Dean
Matthews before the next meeting of MAC.
The Council was asked to
make the request at the AMS
general meeting when students
approved a Ubyssey motion that
arose out of the MAC's refusal
to allow City Editor Stan Beck
to its meeting.
Beck was refused admission
on the grounds that he "curtailed freedom of discussion."
Miss Underhill admitted this
after being confronted with
evidence gathered by The Ubyssey during the past week and a
The Ubyssey phoned every
non-white girl we knew to be on
the campus and asked point-
blank whether they had received
the brochure and application
form. •
Only one girl had received
the material. She received it
two years ago.
In making her admission,'Miss
Underhill pointed to an investigation made by Student Council
last session, in which Women's
Undergraduate Society chairman
Nan Adamson reported that no
UBC sororities have discriminatory clauses.
"Besides," said Miss Underhill, "we are perfectly willing to
let anybody rush if they want
Under a ruling from the Dean
of Women's office, UBC sororities must accept all girls who
rush. Every "rushee" must be
allowed to join a sorority, although not necessarily the one of
her choice.
Miss Underhill also contended
that all girls are given the oppor-
unity to register for rushing during registration week, when a
special booth for the purpose is
set up in the Armoury.
"We're perfectly happy to
have them," she said.
During the past week and a
half the Ubyssey phoned more
than 20 girls. Most were Japanese and Chinese. One was a Hal-
da Indian.
Their names are not used here,
but The Ubyssey has a complete
list which can be produced if absolutely necessary.
Nearly all of the girls said*
they had no desire to join a sorority.
Said one girl: "This is no secret to us. We've known for some
time Jhat the other girls are receiving the invitations, but not
One Japanese girl said: "What
makes me mad is that if I did
happen to want to join a sorority, I would have no idea how
to go about it. This is a very
effective means of keeping me—
and others like me—away."

Council Sides With Ubyssey
Ron Longstaffe said: "I
think the whole sorority system on this campus is unfortunate.
"Let's face it. Some girls
are not sorority material. At
UBC if a girl rushes she has
to be accepted by a sorority
unless she drops rushing.
This puts a severe restraint
on  the sororities."
Wendy Sutton, vice-president of AMS and Pan Hellenic:
"These invitations cost money to print, and are only
sent lo girls we feel are interested in rushing. If the non-
white girls were interested,
they   could     have     contacted
Pan Hellenic or any sorority
girl on campus for information.
Danny Goldsmith, public
relations officer: "If this is
true, it is despicable. We
can understand the uproar of
certain Greeks now; they
want to hush up the whole

Monte McKay, prc-tem undergraduate societies chairman: "It is strange this
"policy" is carried out when
the sororities were quite outspoken about not having discriminatory clauses."

The Big Swindle
Sororities have always assumed a "(holler than thou"
Attitude. "The discrimination issue does not concern us," they
t&ld us. "We have no clauses." <
They proudly announced they turned no girl away—they
discriminated not even on social grounds. They smugly told
us that even the "undesirables" were assured a berth in a
Sorority. Maybe there were some sororities who would not
take these girls, but there was always one who would.
Now the truth is out.
Undeniably, UBC sorories are discriminating on the
basis of race.
And we have reasonably reliable information that there
are sororities who have sneaked their religious discrimination into their initiation rituals.
But we are concerned with racial discrimination here.
Students, too, are concerned with it.
The fact that all girls who rush must be guaranteed
membership in a sorority is no argument to be used by Pan-
HeDenic. This very procedure means that the mailing list procedure is the only method of discrimination. And it is
So discrimination is actually practised by UBC sororities. What are we going to do about it?
We think it unlikely that sorority girls at UBC are all
racial bigots. But they take the easy Way out.
We kiiow that last session, a Chinese girl was kept out
of a particular sorority only because of the objections of
the "mothers' club". We know the girls fought it tooth and
But the girl was finally excluded. It was more convenient.
Faculty Council adopted a "hands off" attitude toward
the discriminatory fraternities last session, when it was
asked to order them off campus if they retained their clauses,
faculty Council contended the fraternities were working
Hard themselves to have their clauses removed at the international level.
The Dean of Women, M. Dorothy Mawdsley, is responsible for sororities. Is Miss Mawdsley going to adopt a "hands
off" attitude?
We would like to know whether Dean Mawdsley knew
of the practise of Pan-Hellenic which has now been exposed.
And if she did not, why not?
Maybe, Dean Mawdsley too, was led down the garden
However, there must be action now. Either Dean Mawdsley or Faculty Council must do something. And the action
will have to be good.
The students will demand satisfaction.
What Was Wrong?
Last Monday the Student Council moved a vote of
censure against the editorial board of The Ubyssey with
regards to the article about discriminatory fraternities.
We have been made to understand that the council does
not deny the truth of the story, nor do they feel that it
should not have been printed. Their objection is that the
story was not printed in good taste.
What this means we frankly don't know.
We assume, though, that it boils down to some points
on technicality. But if our assumption is right, The Ubyssey
should be trusted with the makeup and composition of their
If, however, the Council feels that they are not doing it
well, they should lecture The Ubyssey staff and examine
all their write-ups; before they go to press.
Until they are prepared to do this, the Council should
refrain from passing a motion of censure for the way a
true, desirable story is written.

Wednesday's debate on haiing.
Tlit Lent Shot
Dear Pseudo^Psychiatrist
There are a few matters you
referred to at the recent debate
on hazing which would have
been dealt with during the rebuttal had there been time and
which I feel should not be allowed to pass unchallenged.
You suggested as one of your
points in support of hazing that
students need to be shocked out
of the notions of superiority
that they develop as seniors at
High School. Perhaps you are
not aware that the use of shock
treatment in psychiatry is a
last-resort type of technique,
recommended only after more
postive psycho-therapeutic methods have failed, and only for
specific types of mental illness.
How much more then, in the
case of mentally-sound freshmen, should "treatment" be
that of reasoning and, may I
add, example? Why, not even
members of the Psychology Department, who specialize in the
use of shock to persuade lowly
rats to perform certain actions,
would practise shock treatment
on freshmen to help them adjust to a universiy situation-
Should there be any freshman
who appears at University ip
a state which would seem to
warrant shock treatment, it is
possible that he has come to the
wrong place. Furthermore, if
the term "shock" is to be used
at all in reference to hazing
practices, it is in regard to the
fact that sadistical hazing practices are indeed disgustingly
You referred at one point in
your series of "arguments ad
hominem" to the fact that I
read Freud (and I compliment
you on the correct pronouncia-
tion of Freud as I fully expected you to pronounce it "Frood")
quite early in my training. This
fact is true and I must hasten
to add that he has provided me
with a set of terms which seem
to apply directly to the behaviour displayed by some students at a hazing affair. First
there is that group of individuals who say (their eyes gleaming) that they really enjoy
watching some other individuals being beaten and/or ridiculed. Members of this group,
according to Yreudian terminology, would be described as
sadists. There is another group
of individuals who express
pleasure and joy at being the
victims of these practices. This
behaviour is undoubtedly related to masochism. Both forms
of behaviour tend toward the
pathological and it is my feeling that those who Identify
themselves with hazing ln these
terms have also come to the
wrong place. I am sure that
here is a case of mistaken iden-
tiy, and it is nothing short of a
basic interest in the welfare of
humanity that provokes me to
suggest that these individuals
should make a detour to Essen-
dale every morning for some
electric-shock therapy before
before appearing at UBC for
I should like to add that, as
a psychologist, I found it interesting to hear what you
sadists of the affirmative had
to say on the subject of hazing

Statements By USC
Candidate Seconders
Vic bfeld
Our candidate is a fourth year engineer, last year
winning a bursary and scholarship for highest standing in
Chemical Engineering. He is at present active in the
student chapter of the A.I.Ch.E. Vic is older than the average student, 25, having interrupted his course to serve as
a missionary in Brazil for three years, there earning his
way by teaching English and acting in many advisory and
executive capacities which we feel qualify him to act
efficiently to iron out any differences the Undergraduate
Societies have and represent them unitedly in the Student
Council. Douglas Williamson.
Jim  Killeen
Jim Killeen is the man with the best qualifications to
chair the USC. He has served three years on the High
School Conference Committee, the last year as Chairman,
is a member of the Big Block Club and was a member of
MAD for two years. He is a scholarship student in graduate '■
studies and has the experience of four years on the campus. His organizational experience shows that Jim is the
best man to head the USC and serve on the Student
Council. Ted Lee.
Walt Young
As one interested in student affairs on this campus I
am happy to second the nomination of Walt Young for the
position of USC Chairman.
Walt is fourth year Arts—a scholarship winner since
his days at Victoria College where, as Men's Athletic
Director, he won the College award for outstanding contributions to student activities. A Parliamentary Forum
Executive, a member of last year's Homecoming committee, a Varsity Revue executive, the winner of the
Legion Cup debates and UBC's representative at the
Evergreen Conference debating championships, he is a
good man and worthy of your support.

For 'Chest'
Student Council Monday approved one campus charity drive
but postponed decision on a
Community Chest will benefit by a one-day drive sponsored
by Commerce Undergraduate Society. Tentative date for the Red
Feather Drive is October 27.
United Nations Club's request
to hold a charity drive in aid
of UNESCO was tabled until
next Monday. Councillors did
not want to approve it until other
requests had been received, so
that each charity would have an
equal chance to get at UBC
students' wallets.
"Strike!" is the cry at the
National University of Mexico
when students are dissatisfied,
acording to Ramon Arguelles,
a Mexican student now studying chemical engineering at
They would never stand for
anything such as the recent
B.C. Electric fare raise, but
would offer organized resistance and strike if necessary.
i And these student strikes
aren't just* peaceful picketing,
but often require police force
to quell the riots.
The students do no* strike
for excitement, however, but
o^ly for a legitimate cause
which affects many students,
and has been approved by the
Student's Federation, an organization corresponding to
the AMS.
Arguelles also threw a new
light on the hazing controversy
now raging.
Hazing here may be sadistic in the eyes of some, but it
can't compare with what goes
on at the National University
of Mexico.
There, freshmen have their
heads shaved, just as a part of
traditional initiation program.
And no one worries about resulting inferiority complexes.
Freshettes, one the other
hand, are not submitted to
such indignities. "We respect
women," said Arguelles.
Arguelles' impressions of
UBC co-eds are very favorable.
He finds them friendly, attrac
tive, and not tradition-bound
like Mexican co-eds who are
still in the process of "emancipation."
Mexican students are much
more politically-conclous .than
UBC students, being acutely
aware of national political issues. This was obvious during
the recent Guatemalan revolution, when students staged
several demonstrations.

Three  Year  Drought

Bus Named   Glory" Left Today
The hopes of UBC football
glory left this morning at
seven o'clock on the bus headed for Spokane, Washington
and the Eastern College of Education Savages, and it was
glory, because with it went
the hopes UBC's first Evergreen Conference win in three
On that bus were twenty-
five players, coaches Don Coryell and Dick Mitchell and
trainer Johnny Owen. These
are the people that will come
back Sunday night either rolling in glory, or rolling in
From this side of the fence,
it looks like it will be glory.
When the Birds left this morning it was one ot the few times
that they have gone damn sure
they're going to win.
As captain Bob Brady says,
"I don't think I've ever seen
a UBC football team that was
ever as 'on' as this one for a
And the team is really on,
for two reasons. First, there
isn't an injury in the crowd
and the blueboys.are in top
shape .though none of them
were cut out to be 440 men.
(And if you don't understand
the 440 business ask Ihem).
Secondly, the ballhawks
know that though Eastern is
not going to drop dead for
them, it won't be the same
Savages that beat UBC 20-ti
last year. EWCE had only seven returning lettermen to
their first practise, and though
they have some talent, we
think ours is a hell of a lot
Their   talent   comes   ln   all
sizes.  With the exception of
Rugger Season
Opens Saturday
190 lb. fullback Keith Marten-
sen, the Savages ball carriers
are really none too big. Right-
half George Foster weighs in
at a dimunitive, but fleet, 145,
while the port half is only
Left-half Ray Koziuk is a
little bigger, at 160. While
Myron Rasmussen is their only
large man, tipping the balances
at 175.
The line promises much
more beef, most ,of it on the
starboard side. 240 pounder
Eugene Seigal enters the scene
like a Mack truck, accompanied by equally elephantine
Leon Horton at 235. Willard
Julum is only 205, but he
was second team all-confereVice
material last year.
Their attack will feature
speed and a lot of unpredictable mixed up ball handling.
In fact, the rumour has it the
hotdog pedlars actually know
as much about what the.next
play will be as the quarterback.
Eastern's standard stunt is
to line up in a T with an
unbalanced line, then shift
into a single wing, often throwing in varities of Notre Dame
boxes, laterals, wide end-
arounds and whatever else is
in the grab bag.
Unfortuately for their raz-
zle dazzle, their pasing has
not been making them any
money, and their seems to
be a noted lack in end and
quarterback talent. The loss of
an atrial has consequently taken starch and surprise out of
the offence, which so far has
netted nothing while being
scored on to the tune of 48
points in two games.
Thusly, with a full team
rarin' to go, Coryell is hoping
for dry weather. Not that he
thinks a sloppy field Will beat
him, but he would like a little
As for the birds, the traveling team will be nearly the
same as the one that saw action against PLC. Jim Boulding, who should go for a lot
of yardage Saturday, is the
only sure starter. The rest of
the line up depends on the
flip of a coin.
Saturday, October 9 is the
slay; South Burnaby Park is
the place; 2:30 p.m. is the time.
The event? . . . Oh . . . UBC's
opening rugger game. There,
this year's young, green and
eager squad tackles the veteran
South Burnaby aggregation, and,
if past records mean anything,
the tilt will be a slashing, hard
fought battle. A sort of Youth
versus Experience contest, with
Varsity, naturally, championing
the cause of Youth.
Coach Albert Laithwaite, assisted by Maxie Howell, late of
Australian Wallabies and California, has been driving the 1954
rugger boys with relentless vigor
to whip them into top condition.
Those who survive the practices
are fit: like all Varsity rugger
teams top condition is a requisite,
and the '54 edition rates high In
this department.
Doug MacMillan, third year
commerce, plays forward and is
captain. It is a tradition1 with
the Bird rugger teams that the
next year's captain be voted in
immediately following the California gamp. Thc elected One has
to be of such calibre that his
place on the future squad is virtually assured. Doug, chosen last
year, is a stone-wall and an exceptional choice.
Birds  Play
Fitba'  Here
The soccer front will feature
two top games this weekend
when UBC Thunderbirds take
on Collingwood, Sunday, October
10 on the campus at 2:00, and
the Chiefs play Main Athletics.
Collingwood lost last week to
a tough Dominion Hotel team
but UBC manager Chick Siew
reports that the Colies will be
in, shape for Sunday's game.
Loaded down with veteran talent
they could prove very dangerous.
Except for Dick Matthews
who will be playing football
Siew promised that Birds will
line up with the same hustling
team as they had last week. He
mentioned that the Birds are
out to avenge the poor showings
they made in the past years
when they regularly lost their
first five games.

Sporting event after event has
long since proven that UBC students are not the detested spectator breed of athletes. According
to Dave MacFarlane, Junior Varsity Football Coach, they are not
the participating kind either.
About two weeks ago an expanded football program was
inaugurated, setting up a junior
varsity squad. The idea of the
brainstorm was to give men of
little ability, but less time, and
inexperienced varsity hopefuls,
a chance to participate in real
competitive football.
As practises started, a string
of about six potential games were
set up. Plans were to use the
Varsity Split-T offense featuring
a lot of passing and a hard-
charging line.
But plans have rapidly degen-

erated. Come last Monday, Dave
and his assistants were still giving their time gratis, but player
attendance had dwindled from
sixty to twelve.
The JV coaching staff have
called a practise for 5:30 Friday and expresses the feeling
that unless a sufficient number
of hopefuls and players now
possessing strip show, the game
will probably be cancelled and
the team folded.
With the game coming up
Sunday against Blue Bombers'
reserves it is doubtful that after
that date there will be enough
to field even half a T instead of
a split one against the teams
that have applied for games.
Without more players it would
be useless to accept bids from
Navy, Royal Roads,, Kamloops
and a Seattle boy's school, according to  MacFarlane.
