Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity has appealed the charge of
illegal rushing laid against it
December 7 by the Inter-Fraternity Council on grounds of
"sub jure."
The charge was laid after IFC
received a letter of complaint
from a student stating that he
had been pledged illegally by
the Dekes.
In his letter, the student, Jim
Carney, second year artsman,
said that he had previously told
Deke members that he did not
want to join a fraternity but
signed a pledge card because
"there seemed no logical reason
for refusing to pledge under the
'circumstances." •
"I signed the pledge card with
the idea that I was only promising not to rush another fraternity at UBC."
After the appeal was announced by Delta Kappa Epsilon, the Inter-Fraternity Council set up a three-man committee to investigate claims by the
fraternity that they were
charged and tried unconstitutionally.
Suffers A
Low Blow
'My mother told me never to
kiss a girl until I was going to
marry her," blushed an Anglican rector in a speech here
Thursday noon.
"I've broken that rule a good
many times," continued Dr. A.
M. Trendall, Rector of St. John's
Shaugnessy Anglican Church, in
his speech on how to choose a
mate, first in a series on "Love
and Marriage," sponsored in
Arts 160 by the Student Christian Movement.
The Doctor's mother gave him
this advice on the proper approach to osculation because indiscriminate kissing tends to
cheapen  the individual.
The speaker listed six main
points to watch for in the selection of a partner.
The speaker advised young
people to know the religion of
their prospective partners, and

Offenses May Bring
Faculty Interference
Faced with three discipline infractions and a rumored
threat that Faculty Council will take student control into its
own hands, discipline committee chiefs are rushing to produce
a "criminal code" satisfactory to students and faculty.
With his January 18 deadline for producing a more effective disciplinary code fast approaching, Jim McNish and
his Undergraduates Societies committee faced two alleged infractions of AMS bylaws.
At the same time, Student Council, in committee-of-the-
whole, discussed a third infraction, a scuffle at the door of
Brock hall during the Fort Camp dance Saturday night.
No   charges  have  been   laid
against the, student involved in
this incident, McNish has stated.
USC will not be required to investigate. RCMP were called
out but no charges have been

Mastin is charged with breaking a window in the north door,
Brock hall, Wednesday afternoon.
Crain ,a member of the Radsoc executive, is charged by
AMS treasurer Allan Goldsmith with having made a copy
of the Brock hall master key.
At the same meeting, the
committee must pass or reject
the new disciplinary code
sketched by Rollie Bulman and
Jim McNish.
Council gave an ultimatum
last term to McNish and his
committee to have a new, improved code prepared by January 18, next Monday.
With a zero batting average
for successful applications of
student discipline this year,
student officials are worried
that the Faculty Council may
soon  take  over.
Student  Council,  apparently   fearing   increasing   threat
of   Faculty   intervention,   refused to release any information about the scuffle at the
Fort Camp dance.

Anarchy Unlimited
The Undergraduate Societies Committee has turned down
the idea of a Student Court to judge breaches of student
discipline. USC would prefer to continue their unsatisfactory
method of handling a problem that is becoming more serious
every day.
If d satisfactory solution is not found immediately the
administration will be forced' to step in because students do
not have the responsibility which they have been loudly acclaimed for forty years. Already there are rumours that
student organizations will be required to have a faculty representative at every function.
The legislature, in setting up the' University iof B.C.,
specifically made provision for a Student Court in the University Act. It allowed Faculty Council to give this Court as
much power as it desired.
Ilk the present state Faculty Council could not possibly
delegate disciplinary power to USC. Moreover, USC has stated
that they don't want the power. They have said that no
student should have the responsibility of suspending or fining
another student.
The campus needs a group of students to investigate infractions. When there is rumour or evidence that regulations
have been broken, there should be a responsible group with
the. power to investigate.   This could well be the USC.
But we also need a group of impartial students with a
knowledge of university affairs to be the judges. If investigators
are also Judges, certainly they don't want the responsibility of
punishing a fellow student.
But if a group oi respected and responsible judges hand
down the penalties, we will get more effective results, and
Faculty Council will be pleased to hand over a duty which
they admittedly don't like.
This group of students would be chosen by Student
Council from those who have demonstrated their stability
and vision.   Appeal would be directly to Faculty Council.
Just to call It a Student Court is not to suppose that discipline is going to be bogged down with legal technicalities.
USC has expressed a fear that the Student Court would become a plaything for fledgling lawyers.
Anything can become a plaything for fledging lawyers,
but we feel the real thing USC fears is responsibility.     •
The experience of the past few clays shows the need. USC
is covering up for students misdemeanors and is avoiding responsibility. A Student Court looks like the best answer. Let's
not throw it out for fear of lawyers or responsibility.
Realize Obligations
Men at Fort and Acadia Camps want new dormitories.
The University is behind all student efforts to get these much-
needed residences.
At a meeting Wednesday faculty representatives, members
of the student council and the presidents of the two camps
mapped out an aggressive and intelligent campaign to get help
from the provincial government.
It is unfortunate, however, that recent news articles have
brought to light certain conditions existing in the camps regarding noise and other disturbances which may deter from,
the overall effect of the campaign for new residences.
Complaints have been heard that The Ubyssey is "not
behind student efforts"; that The Ubyssey "picked the wrong
time to print articles running down Fort Camp." It seems
that a portion of the students feel that The Ubyssey should
not meddle in such matters and should certainly not print
such material.
This rather illogical stand does not do credit to students
of University calibre. This paper is in complete accord with
efforts by students and faculty to raise funds for new and
adequate accommodation. However, The Ubyssey cannot
ignore the fact that a small percentage of the students in
the camps are conducting themselves in a manner which affects
the chances of the more serious majority to attain the goals
of a University education.
Confusin  Not Amusin
One of the most momentous occasions in UBC history
came several years ago when students arrived at Brock hall to
find that an imaginative Co-ordinator of Activities had booked
two dances and two orchestras into the same hall on the
same night.
Although the present Co-ordinator, Mr. Nuttall, is not to
blame this time, a similar incident is shaping up for students
on Friday evening. Thanks to the ingenuity of someone,
students have the choice of going lo the Mardi (Iras, at lending the Evergreen Conference basketball opener at the gym,

Homer Schnook, Arman<
Pitt (Armpit, for short), Harry Kari and Georgias George
are Public Recreation students. They have returned to
the campus after the Christmas vacation, and in order to
learn their marks from term
examinations, they go to their
prof, Dr. Munchly.
This is a quaint custom
among recreation students and
some others. Groups of four
can be seen going in and out
of the prof's office all day
long. Even though he is the
head of the department, 'he is
a good head, very broadminded
about exams.
Now these characters represent something of a cross-
section of recreation students,
since Georgias is inclined toward the intellectual. Harry is
just above average, Homer is
a Joe College and Arm is strictly from Saskatchewan.
In true democratic style,
Munchly distributes his marks
by means of the old "pick-a-
card, any card" system. This
replaced the former method of
throwing examination papers
up a flight of stairs after certain unethical students were
found applying chewing gum
to the backsides of their papers.
Greeting the quartet with a
new deck of Bicycles in hand,
Munchly bids them:
"Siddown, guys. Have a
drink? Sorry about your Ping
Pong 120; the girl lost your
score cards New Year's Eve.
But that's the way the ball
bounces, heh, heh."
"Sure, Doc," says Harry.
"jit's kinde, hard keepin' score
New Year's, anyway."
"Daahhh, yeah," grunts Arm.
"Well, you boys know the
system; I pick out the ace,
king, queen, jack, shuffle them
and lay them out. Go ahead—
pick a card."
They draw.
"What's your card, Arm?"
asks Munchly.
"Daahhh, I gotta ace."
"Nice work, boy; first class."
"That's real crazy, Doc. I
was shure hopin' for a real
james dandy, daahhhh," grins
Arm, his eyes brimming over
with athletic gratitude.
"What's yours, Homer?" says
Munch, looking at a spot oh
the wall.
"It's the king, Doc, sir," he
"Not bad, not bad at all;
second class." He looks over at
"I hold thc queen, sir, but
I thought I did a little better
than . . ."
"A pass isn't too good for
you, Harry. You'll have to improve before the intramurals."
Munchly turns and looks out
the window. "Well, Georgias?"
"Sir, isn't there some mistake? I've got the jack . . ."
"You flunk," says Munchly,
gazing at the cornice of the
chemistry building.
Thc stunned silence is broken only by the occasional rumble of Munchly's ulcers,
"There you have it, boys;
it's in the cards." He wheels
around to face Georgias and
declares, "As far as you're concerned, George, that is the
worst Tiddlywinks 310 mark
I've ever seen in all my experience. Maybe next time you
won't spend the day before in

"We were all there, though,
and you were buying," plcr.us

Japanoit University
Editor The Ubyssey
I had landed in Tokyo with
my ego inflated lo the i'oot-
tops. It was soon deflated
when I had realized that the
loud greeting which I had imagined to be the "Brass Band,"
was merely the famous Tokyo
taxi drivers honking their car
horns. I was soon to find that
in this strange and foreign
land, the incessant sound of
the horns, an import from the
western countries, can easily
drive anybody mad. But aside
from % this constant honking
which is similar to the traffic
jam on Granville during the
busy hours, Tokyo is very
different from Vancouver. The
transportation system for Tokyo's great area and population
is just like a maze. However,
with the guideof Kelo's friendly
students, the big city had finally become familiar.
The Mita Campus of Keio
University, cannot be compared with the large site of UBC.
But it is amazing to see
a university with a land area
of twenty acres crowded on
a hilltop, surrounded by one
of the industrial districts of
Tokyo. Mita Campus was almost totally demolished during
the war, however, except for
the auditorium which remains
completely ruined, it is is impossible to notice any ravages
the war; however, except for
by the Noguchi room'which is
in one of the newly built buildings. The room is designed in
a combination of traditional
Japanese and modern Western
architecture. The two cultures
are so well planned that within
this modern Western room, one
can feel the strange oriental
ntmosphjere of the Japanese
The educational system in
Japan is quite different from
that of Canada. The students
place a great amount of dependence on their professors.
The students rely almost
wholly on lectures with very
negligible reading, if any reading is done. On the other hand,
there seems to be total independence in their extra cur-
ricular activities. Except for
political clubs, the students
have almost every conceivable
variety of clubs to channel
their activities at Keio. Even
the Health Center, comparable
to UBC's Student Health Service, is a skident activity.
My first impression of Tokyo
City and Keio University cannot be recorded as totally favourable. The difficulty (fi
understanding their social customs is the greatest problem.
Without direct contact with
people and the country, I believe, it is impossible for any
student of Oriental history and
culture to fully grasp the insight of Oriental thought. Certain customs which are remnants of the feudal age still
exist. However, it is amazing
to notice in this poverty stricken, overpopulated country, the j
Japanese people possess a certain feeling of serenity and contentment.

Wrong Assumption
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Thc only impractical thing
about the motion passed at an
AMS General meeting about
the fraternity question was the
assumption that some of the
principles talked about incessantly at this university would
be put into practice.
This assumption did not anticipate the "Ubyssey's" editor
deciding that the fisht against
racial bigotry going on at least
since the time of Christ, in the
fraternities themselves for at
least the last 20 years and on
this campus for almost two
years has given thc fraternities
too little time for action.
This assumption did not anticipate tiie A d m i n i s t r a tion
while    talking    about    student
autonomy,  instead  of using  itfli
authority  as  requested   by  the
students in a student matter reform^  tiie mailer  back  to slu-j
dents to whom they have given |
no power  to  act. j
This a-Miimplion did  not  an-i
licipalc    our    student    govern
ment so half-heartedly representing us that a decision on j
the matter is delayed for eight j
months when a General Meeting calls for immediate action.
This assumption did not anticipate that support of principles is so weak on this campus that a few not too important social groups arc placed in
a more important position than
the practice of racial equality
in our social relations.
These assumptions should
not have been unrealistic at a
so-called center of enlightenment. Obviously they are and
equally obvious our so-called
leaders are not unduly concerned about this fact.
After all, we have lots of
time to test ourselves—let's not
start so early in our lives to
live according to our professed principles.

Parliamentary Forum condemned the tactics of McCarthyism by the overwhelming
vote of 50-6 Thursday noon.
Emphasizing that the methods employed by Senator
Joseph McCarthy (R.-Wis.)' and
his followers are destroying the
United States from within, graduate student Bob Loosmore
defeated Ian Seymour in the
forum debate, "Resolved: that
McOarthyism is desirable in
the U.S. today."
In answer to Seymour's
warnings of the danger of communism in the US today, Loosmore said that McCarthyism is
just as dangerous as communism, if not more so, Loosmore
went on to define McCarthyism
as consisting of "accusations of
disloyalty based on undisclosed
Maintaining that McCarthyism
is necessary in the U.S., Seymour stated that the constitution
of the U.S. is such that this new

government of communists.
Seymour later hit out at the
college professors, clergymen
and intellectuals in general as
being the main force in the communist revolutionary movement.
He refuted the theory that communism was for the masses; sta

Negative speaker Loosmore
warned the Forum that the
threat to political freedom does
not only exist in the Soviet
Union, but also within the US.
He maintained that (he triumph of McCarthyism in the

of the difference between the
U.S. and the U.S.S.R. to a matter of language and geography.

The topic was "Resolved that

they have made their greatest

Council Finds More Blitzes
Than Ashcans On Campus
With charity fund-raising becoming a too frequent occurrence on the campus. Student
council has decided to investigate possibility of inaugurating
one main drive to be held annually.
As conducted at many other
universities, this plan would
eliminate all faculty - sponsored
"blitzes" which now glean pennies from students.
Bill St. John, public relations
officer, told council that other
universities find, the system sa-
tifactory, usually resulting in a
greater aggregate of funds than
individual drives collect.

At McGill this year, a concerted drive netted in the neighborhood of $5,000, councillors
were told.
A. subcommittee under Howie
Beck was appointed to collect
information on the subject,
Further charity drives ln the
1958-54 session were prohibited
by council this wek. Sole ex-,
ceptions are the annual Aggie'

Ann Cooper, chairman and sole

The committee was appointed
by president Ivan Feltham following a complaint last fall from

suggested that students be more
careful with lunch papers.
Buildings and grounds department of the university has

The ashcan expert was somewhat vague on the cost of providing new facilities. She said,
"I don't know about the price,
but I think they're about $20
At an earlier meeting she had
recommended from 50 to 80
new units, but council cautioned
her that this might be carrying

Feltham and Allan Goldsmith, treasurer, will meet the

Birds To Open At Home
Will Play Strong Teams
Play Eastern Tonight;
Whitworth Tomorrow
Chiefs Bid
For Eighth
The UBC Chiefs will be out
to extend their undefeated soccer streak In league play to eight
games on Sunday when they
host Forum on the campus.
The Chiefs have been idle in
league play for over a month
and as a result have lost their
second place standing. However,
the Chiefs, losers of only one
league game all season, have
pltryed many less games than
any other club and are still one
of the favorites for the Third Division championship. ,
Varsity Plays Collies
The speedy Chiefs, possessor's
ol. the league's best defense,
should have no trouble with the
eigth place Forum squad. They
could roll up a bigger score than
their previous 6-1 win over the
same team.   •
Varsity meets league-leading
Colllngwod Legion at West Point
Grey Park in what shapes up as
a crucial contest for both clubs.
The Collies are in a tough
light lor top spot in the "B»'<
Division. If the Birds have any
aspirations to the same spot,
they must win on Sunday.
The Birds have never had too
much trouble with Collingwood',
although they have managed
managed only two ties in three
meetings withe league leaders
this season.
The UBC Thunderbirds will be facing the two strongest
teams in the Evergreen Conference when they play their
first home games this weekend. Tonight the Birds will face
Eastern Washington, last year's champions and on Saturday
night they will take on the Whitworth Pirates, the team to
beat this year. The 'Birds lost their two Con-
. fference   openers   last   weekend
but Coach Jack Pomfret was not
displeased with the team's performance and he feels that they
picked up a lot of valuable experience in those two games.
Geoff Craig in particular was
not used to ihe rough brand of
ball played in this Conference
and this, weekend he should
be more sure of himself.
Eastern has lost five letter-
men from last year's championship team but they are still a
contender for Conference honors. The Savages were struck a •
heavy blow when their 6'8" cen>
tre Bill Grahlman was called to
duty by Uncle Sam. They will
be relying heavily on the sharp
shooting of Dick Edwards, who
was a second team choice for
all-Conference honors last year.
The Whitworth Pirates are
definitely the strongest team in
the Conference this year. They
have lost sensational Jim Doherty, who received honorable mention on the Ail-American team
last year. However, they still
have one of the best small college teams in the U.S. with an
average height of 6*9".
Some of the best games of the
year will be played this weekend, and the athletic department
is hoping for a large student
turnout. All games start at 8:30.
Pubster: "I saw the strangest
bird in Africa this summer. It
lays square eggs and talks".
Applied Science student:
'What does it say?"
Pubster: "Ouch."
This may be the machine age
but at least people still make
love by hand.

Statu (phivate <&m
No doubt you readers of the downtown daily throwaways
have been made acutely aware of the B.C. Athlete of the Year
contest which has been going on for the past two months. No
sooner did one of the papers come out with the idea of choosing the outstanding athlete in our fair province in the past
year than the other paper announced a similar contest.
One of the paper's winners was decided on the basis of a
popular vote. The other paper's will be decided by a board of
so-called experts who will pick a winner from those athletes
nominated by the public. Each paper advertises the fact that
theirs is the only real contest and that their winner will be
the REAL Athlete of the Year in British Columbia.
The sport pages of the Sun and the Province have never
been accused of being the best in Canada but surely this contest farce is a new low even for them.
The paper that first had the idea had a good one. But the
two downtown rags are in the midst of a circulation war
and nothing would do but that the other paper had to have
their own contest also.
Surely this is the height of insincerity and stupidity. Say,
for example, that the Province's winner was Joe Doaks and
that the Sun's winner was John Smith. Imagine (if you can)
the absurdity of the situation if Mr. Doaks met Mr. Smith on
the street and they began to congratulate each other on being
B.C.'s Ahlete of the Year. Yet this is the exact situation that the
downtown papers have created.
The situation becomes all the more ridiculous when it is
realized that B.C. is blessed this year with the world's strongest
man in the person of Doug Hepburn who has just been named
Canada's Athlete of the Year. Luckily the people who voted
in the Province's poll made Hepburn the overwhelming winner.
But suppose that the Sun's (ha, ha) experts decided someone
was more worthy of their award than Doug Hepburn? Ergo:
Canada's Athlete of the Year is not worthy of being B.C.'s
Athlete of the Year.   B.C. is still in Canada, isn't it?
In view of this ridiculous situation how can tho winner
of either of the paper's awards possibly feel any pride in
being named B.C.'s Athlete of the Year?
We humbly suggest that nexi year both papers give the
intelligence of their readers a little credit and conduct a combined effort to decide B.C.'s Athlete of the Year. In this way
the winner of tho award can feel truly proud of being tho
athlete of the year in British  Columbia.
