New Opposition Forseen
To Ostrom Athletic Plan
FORWARD THREATS of the hosting UBC Thunder,
birds John Southcott and Art Phillips, will see plenty of action
over the big basketball jamboree weekend when four teams
complete in a round robin tourney. 'Birds spar with Western
Washington Vikings in the first half of the double-header tonight Wi$i Central Washington Wildcats and Vancouver Clover-
leafs topping the bill. Winners play winners and losers play with
losers on Saturday night's bill.
STIU IN OLD GYM
Hoopla Jamboree
' . UBC students will wind up their last weekend before exams
with a gala hoopla jamboree and will see some of the last
basketball games to be played in the old gymnasium.
First Jamboree ln UBC's history,!—— ——,-    ---■
the meet will feature Wildcats of!a,e « new «10U,J tro™ l ,e oUtllt

none of his returning tneu were
first-stringers lust year.
lege of Western Washington Vlk-
lii$8, UBC Thunderbirds, and the
undefeated Vancouver Clover Leafs.
"Each evening'* games will be
double headers, and over the weekend eaoii team will have played
every other team.
IHO QUESTION
A big question should be settled
by the Jamboree. Sports enthusiasts
■re. still wondering how college ball
stacks up with downtown basketball, and they should have their
answer over this week-end.
Clover Leafs, who are on one
side of the fence ln answering the
sports query, are strictly speakliu,
an ex-college team, since many of
them are alumni of UBC's famed
"Wonderblrd" team ot 1946.
Sandy Robertson, Ole Bakken,
and Harry Kermode, all ex-UBC
stars', will be ln strip for the ocac-
clon.'
Western Washington has had
warm-up training in pre-season exhibitions, und should prove a formidable foe.
'BIRD8  SHOULD  SHOW
But UBC students can expect to
see the 'Birds right in there shooting this week-end. With coaches
and fans rumoring that varsity at
last has a team equal to those top
squads of yesteryear, spectators
have every reason to expect great
things from this years squad.
Series starts Friday at 8 p.m.
when Central takes on Clover
Leafs, and at 9:15 p.m., UBC
squares off against Western.
Saturday, the two losers and the
two winners will meet again to
decide the champion of the tourna-
DELTA  SIGMA  PI  OPEN
TO  IDEAS  FOR  SHOW
Delta Sigma Pi, women's honorary sorority, would
like to hear ideas about their talent show to be held after
Christmas.
Irene Carlson, in charge of arrangements for the show,
has sent out a call for any suggestions for the show.
Mail should be sent to Miss Carlson c-o Woman's Editor,
Ubyssey. Campus mail is free.
Further auditions for the talent show will be held after
Christmas, Girls interested should plan recitations, dancing,
or musical events over the holiday, she stated.
Advertiser Cancells
U of AA Contract
Promoter Withdraws Ads From
Manitoban After Review
WINNIPEG — (£UP) - Advertising has been withdrawn
from a U of Manitoba student publication by the promoter of
a concert by the Leslie Bell Singers, because of an unfavorable
review of the concert. .
The   Manitoban,   undergraduate»-	
publication, has been advised by
the promoter that he has cancelled
his advertising in the student Tele,
phone Directory, because of the
review.
In an editorial, The Manitoban
says that although tbe reviewer
was "not enthralled" by the Leslie
Ball Singers, tbe significant point
in the article was that he did, not
feet that the group ranked with
other eelebmies^rbTiijrt to Winnipeg by the same Impresario.
The editorial adds that a later
Issue of the Manitoban contained
a spontaneous and unsolicited letter to the editor taking the reviewer to task because of his criticism.
The Manitoban editorial states
that, ln reviewing the same series
of concerts last year, 'on almost
every instance, the performers
were lauded to the skies."

Office Foreseen
TORONTO — (CUP)—A permanent national office for NFCUS
is slated In the near future by the
agreement reached at the conference of NFCUS executive council
held ih Toronto, Nov. 87.

us the money needed to form a na
tlonal office, and with the conference agreement that it should
be located In Montreal or Ottawa,
we should have the office by next
term." wild Fred Long, represent
Ing the Maritimes.
Toronto was not considered a
good location for the head office
because there ls too much lll-feel
ing against it throughout the rest
of the country, said Fred Scott.

"Montreal seems to be the best
bet. It has two large universities,
McOill and the University of Montreal, both of which are strong for
NFCUS."
Cal  Employees
Need More Funds
BERKELEY, Cal. — Sixteen
hundred per month Is needed to
assist 13 non-Senate academic employees of U of CbI who refused
to sign tire regents' oath. The need
(or funds is urgent, It was stated
in the Dally Calfornlan recently.
It was pointed out that lt would

AMS Fee Increase er No Plan
Proposed in Tabled LSE Report
New controversy has broken out over the .Ostrom Plan to
revitalize athletics which received student approval at the
special meeting of the AMS this month.
A resolution Ihat the LSE op-f ~*^f^~
pose the "Ostrom Plan" unless
AMS fees are increased was tabled at a special meeting of the Major-Minor Clubs ol the LSE Wednesday to allow clubs to further
consider the motion.
"The Ostrom Plan leaves the
clubs of tiie campus ln permanent
austerity position," Ed Pedersen.
LSE president stated. In view of
the importance of clubs to campus life, we must either receive
more revenue in the form of a
fee increase, or we must oppose the
plan.
The group also demanded clarification of Student Council's implementation of the plan.
"There have 'been reports that
council will carry out the new
scheme without another referral
to the student body. This attempt
is contrary to statements made
while the plan was being presented, "Pedersen said.
Brief was drawn up oy a special committee appointed by Pedersen to consider the effects of tlm
Ostrom Plan on the members of
the LSE.
Members of the committee were:
Mike Hlnd-Smlth president of
the UN club; Ken Bogus, musical society president; Dorothy'
Pox, president of the Student Christian Movement; Phil Keatley,
head of Players Club and Ed Pedersen.

fWne a Uttle hurt — that all this should be
happening to them again.
Students' pooketbooks are empty, or
nearly enough so not to matter. Gaily decor-

City-bred students are cursing the City

The last-minute scramble to finish up
month-late essays is vieing with much-needed study for a place on the crowded timetable.
Reservations for the long trip home appear
impossible.
The wind is cold and coats are worn

Yes, it is that time qi year again.
Have a merry Christmas everyone.
A world famous philosopher visiting our
campus recently declared that the university
was built during the middle ages. Students
should be flattered that Prof. Etienne Gilson
took such a particiular interest in our present
gymnasium.
The CBC's John Fisher devoted the
larger portion of his Sunday commentary to
the elucidation of the not too new fact that,
despite the nasty turn of international affairs,
there are no fortifications being built on Uie
Canadian—U.S. border. Just for the record,
The Ubyssey would like to add that there
are no fortifications being built on the Russian-Polish border, either.
On Burning Houses *«**■* a**
Ubyssey columnist Les Armour
evaded the words ln his most re-
test attack on "campus militarists/'
(And All Tl^t—Nov. 30) but he
Haves no doubt that he Is raising
-tbe issue of pacifism as opposed
ito What his predecessors would
iUkttj called "Imperialist" war.
it was the recent address of De-
^Mnoe    Minister   Brooke    Claxton
Which mounted Mr. Armour, lance
COttchant, against the windmill oi*
liters.
In the windy halls of philosophy
where Mr. Armour dwells, and at
present enjoys a dalliance with
Oeorge Orwell's "lfJSl", the belch-
l0g roar of flame thrower Is merely
ft symbol fired from thc ram parts
«1 debate.
■It Is surprising that Mk.. Armour.
Minded for the moment as he is
-fay'the dramatized partial truths of
Mr. Orwell, has neglected to recall
-MS military factors in thu societies Which produced the phllosop-
hers he so assiduously studies.
Perhaps a reading of Homer
Lee'r "Valor of Ignorance," which
tttotfftfl out that national societies
'limply do not learn from past experience, or, lt they do, fail in
moral courage to make tho sacrifices necessary for a future poacj,
might help.
The United Nations failed at Yalta and Potsdam, before It was born.
The partition of Germany was a
fcollcy so reminiscent of Versailles that one only Malted  for  the
years to bring a new Hoare-Laval
pact  over  another  Abyssinia.
The decision to drop the atomic
bomb on Japan was an act of such
venial expediency that no one, not
even Mr. Armour, should doubt
the moral level of our age.
The plea for pacifism ls irreva-
lant today. If Mr. Orwell's world
does come true through a near balance of conflicting powers, Mr. Armour will be fti jail certainly, but
he will not bask. Does he forget
the final paragraph of "li'si" and
how the hero learned to "love big
brother."
The forces loose In the world
arc loose among masses of people
corrupted with too many years of
wooing by demagogues.
It Is not for the thinking elements in llie universities to stand
aside and wrestle internally with
the forces of evil.
They can, and must, live in their
two worlds. Mon of Intellectual Integrity have always accepted disciplines for a particular end.
If Mr. Armour's argument devolves on his reference to the
"playful switches" of policy with
which Mr., Stalin "matched any
dreamed up on this continent" h"
has entered a by-road along which
I would not care to follow.
I have had my flirtation with
Karl Marx and his byproducts.

tETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
ln an editorial In The Ubyssey
of Nov. 23, there Is a phrase, "u
body blow to student unity." .In
this, perhaps, the marvellous
brand of student unity that wus
displayed at the meeting of this
year's graduating class? The arts-
men, being intensely Interested In
student unity, turned out in alarming numbers (some 50 strong) to
see that tho people of their choice
were elected to administer the duties of the graduating class. It
would appear that they prefer to
have these Important offices oc
cupled by engineers.
Is lt possible that The Ubyssey
editors and whatever faction they
represent, do not represent a true
cross-section of student opinion?
This ls certainly reflected ln the
editorial, titled somewhat symbolically, "30'Pieces of Silver." Kor
in this unbiased journalistic gem,
they describe the Totem as "a
consistently first-rate annual for
their entire student bodies." This,
we are sure will come as a revelation to those who have hopefully "plunged § $17,500 worth of
student funds" Into the Totem.
The main purpose of an engineering yearbook Is to give complete coverage of engineering activities during the year. The activities of an organization the size
of the EUS cannot possibly be
printed on the few pages that
the Totem consents to allot us.
Furthermore, only pictures of graduates are published—none of the
lowly undergraduate. This ls not
suitable for a person who wants
a complete record of events and
acquaintances.
The Ubyssey accuses us of
"Job hunting." Certainly the best
way of contacting some firms Is,
through an annual and most certainly the Totem Is unsuitable for
such a purpose. No employer is
Interested ln an annual whose basic
purpose Is to record major social
events rather than the purpose,
scope, and activities or campus
clubs.
For years the Totem has failed
the Engineers both ln coverage
and as a means of contact. Therefore, we feel that we have not sold
out the Totem but that they have
been selling us out for several
years.
Yours  sincerely,
Mill inglis 3rd Mecb Eng.

Take Second in

Volleyball has come into its
Qwn on the campus as a minor
sport - theoretically, at least.
To date, UBC's yet inexperienced group of pat-ball aspirants have contested but twice,
and each time, they have managed to garner best three out
of five wins.
Doth matches have heen played
with the Powell lliver sextet.
Last we"kend, I'IX' hoys sojourned to the I'ulp and Paper town to
spar with the home-group and came
out on top.alter an even split in
ihe first four sanies.
Yesterday. Powell River's enthusiasts payed a visit to the rumpus,
and results were equally as exciting as those witnessed in lhe up-
ioast idly.
Visitor's nnbh'd an early series
lead taking the first two games ut
15-i:'>. hul IIP.'' stalwarts rela.liut.eU
hy knocking off their opponents
three straight, 15-!', 15-6 and 15-1'*-.
Fourth game was by far the fastest match as Powell lliver lads
took an early ('•»' lead, only to helplessly stand by as the home stpiad
took the next fifteen for the win.
Final tilt was the most exciting
as neither team was ahead by more
than two points at any one time.
1'liC took a (|ulck !"-<> lead, but
from that point, the game was nip
and tuck all the way till home-
towners finally grabbed the winner.
