For Illegal
Charges of illegal rushing laid
against Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity December 7 by Inter-Fraternity Council resulted in conviction and fine for the Dekes
A fine of 50 cents each was
imposed on the fraternity's 30
members, as IFC's five-man investigating committee tossed out
the appeal Dekes had filed on
the grounds they were tried
unconstitutionally when convicted last month.
The charge arose November
30, when second year artsman
Jim Carney lodged a complaint
with IFC claiming he had been
pledged "in a cloud of Deke
liquor and hospitality," thinking
he had only promised not to
rush any other fraternity.
The Dekes are expected to
launch another appeal, however,
this time at a full meeting of
Irtter-Traternity   Council.

Ho Likes Toronto
I would like the opportunity
to recommend the NFCUS Inter-Regional Scholarship Plan
to other UBC students.
Through this plan, I was able
to finance a year's education at
the University of Toronto, and
already this opportunity has
greatly enriched my University
experiences. Needless to say,
assoicating with students from
another part of Canada enables
one to make new friends and
increases your understanding
and appreciation of the country
as a whole.
Living in residence is an education in itself! There is far
more time to study, and to participate in residence athletics
and socials, in addition to faculty activities.
University of Toronto being
divided up Into six colleges
creates a great spirit and rivalry amongst the students; everyone supports their teams with
pep rallies and parades, and
this is even more obvious in
inter-collegiate competition. A
dull moment never exists on
this campus!
During this Fall term, I have
had the good fortune of seeing
the Eastern scenery, which previously I had no appreciation
of. I also took the opportunity
of selling the West, and many
people express interest in UBC
and want to know more about
British Columbia in general.
I am grateful to NFCUS for
providing me with this invaluable experience of travel, and
I highly recommend the Interregional Scholarship plan to
anyone who wants to get away
and enjoy themselves by seeing and living in a very differ-
ent and interesting part of Canada.
Godfrey H. Chowne,
1st Law,
University of Toronto.
Minor Riot
Although I am not a member
of your student body, my spies
in UBC have been sending me
all the issues of your paper, and
may I say that these copies
have created a minor? riot in
this college.
A grad of West Van High, I
am attending Modesto Junior
College in California and have
been trying my best to educate
our neighbours re Canada. I
must admit that the Ubyssey
has succeeded in promoting in-
ternation where I have failed.
When the staff of our paper,
The Collegian, read your "Goon
Edition" they nearly dropped
their dark glasses and suntan
oil. If you could only see the
glint that is now in the Editor's eye . . .
Keep up the great work.

Seagulls Again
In response to many enquiries from perhaps over-solicitous well-wishers may I say
that, to the best of my knowledge, seagulls are definitely
not carnivorous.
Yours truly,
Sandy Manson.
Boo On Frots
Recently, a great deal has
been written about the horrors
and benefits of the Sorority
and'Fraternity system. If you
are one of those wondering
whether or not to Rush next
year, allow me to give you
some information gathered
from bitter experience.
Rushing definitely affords an
excellent opportunity to meet
many new people both ln your
own and different years and
faculties. Probably you will
get into the Sorority or Fraternity which was your first
choice or at least your second.
It is then that the disillusioning
part begins. After learning
quantities of boring data about
your organization and going
through a childish (not excitingly sadistic) pledge period,
initiation day will finally arrive. Costumed in ill-fitting
regalia, your future "brothers"
or "sisters" will divulge secrets,
repeat oaths and sing chants
"(probably out of tune and with
only a few enthusiastic members knowing their words and
It is a tremendous show, "only
you are not allowed to laugh.
And of course it is very secret
too (anything that silly has to

you can hold hands in the dark
and quote ritual passages exactly as thousands of your "brothers" or "sisters" do all over
the United States and Canada.
For perhaps between forty
and ninety dollars a yeac.
which is spent on heaven knows
what, you are assured of a
table in the "Caf" where you
can legitimately eat your
lunch. And think of the thrill,
twenty five years from now,
If you meet an alum from an-
othr university and the two
of you exchange grips, secret
passwords and call each other
"brother" (or "sister").

However it is next year,
when you go through Rushing
from the other angle that you
really get some jolts. The list
must be kept down so reasons
have to be found to take the
names off. Incidents from the
past are dragged up, "consruct-
iye" criticisms, almost without
end, are made about characters
intelligence. As opinions differ, remarks become less subtle.
At this point you are apt
to feel bored, furious, hypro-
critical or all three, and wonder how you were unlucky
enough to be accepted yourself.
Unfortunately there is nothing
you can do about it except
go inactive (oh disloyal
thought!) and you may not be
able to do that either because
in some groups it is compulsory to remain active until
fourth year is completed.

Prospective Rushees, there
are other, more mature organizations on the campus that
enable you to make friends,
have a good time and do some
philanthropic work. Do Rush
by all means, meet people and
avail yourself of the gracious
hospitality but don't be a sheep
and make the silly mistake
of joining a sorority or fraternity or, like me, you may regret
it for the next; three years.

This years graduation class of
Home Economics girls seems to
be breaking all records in the
field of matrimony. One third
of them are either engaged or
married. This startling figure
doesn't include a few girls who
are pinned or those others with
definite wedding plans but lacking only the traditional diamond. It is getting to such a
state that the unattached girls
fear becoming a minority.
This portion of some of the
copy turned in by the Heme
Ec undergraduate society is
printed as an example of some
of the copy which was turned
in to be used by a university
newspaper. The story had to
be deleted along with the rest
of the copy which was turned
in to complete this page.
This page was to have been devoted to the Home Economics
Faculty. Student Council recently ruled that each undergraduate society is "to be given permission to utilize 80 column inches
in The Ubyssey".
Council also gave The Ubyssey permission to reject any
material which is not up to the standard of a university newspaper.
Home Ec turned in a five by ten-inch cartoon drawn by a
Ubyssey cartoonist, a story on an event which will take place
April 7 and two other stories which could not be used. The
only stories which were fit to be used in a university paper
are printed above.
Four other undergraduate faculties have been given permission to use columns in The Ubyssey, It is hoped that their
copy is up to a standard which can be used in a paper which
represents this university.

For Banff Meet
Annual  Competition
Is Continent's Best
The UBC ski team left yesterday to attend the annual Inter-
Collegiate Ski Meet this week-end at Banff, Alberta.
This meet is considered to be the finest inter-collegiate skiing
competition on the continent. It is sponsored and organized
by the Department of Physical Education at the University of
Alberta. The Alberta Department of Economic Affairs pays
the living expenses of the teams during their stay at Banff. .
At   least  ten   Canadian   and*
which is in Sweden for the In-
American teams enter each year
and the meet is held over the! ^national Federation of Skiing

There is a definite" indication that there is a need for
it at UBC. All the signs over at the War Memorial Gym
have pointed to this crying need.
No one will try and tell you that athletics are terrific
at UBC but for an unathtetic-minded school we do all right.
But that is neither here nor thc-re. What is here is another
basketball season. The Birds are doing just so-so. We
expected better.   But then we always do.
But that does npt get away from the fact that we still
need it.   We needed it for the last five years and we still
need it today.
