1500 copies of The Ubyssey were stolen by Applied Science-

The Ubyssey was told of the theft by a witness who saw
several Applied Science students seize the papers from distribution points around the campus.

against discrimination in Greek letter societies was adopted here
by the four western! university newspapers at the first annual
conference of the $ewly-formed Western Regional Canadian
A move to have future Applied Science smokers held on
campus was initiated by Mike Nuttall, activities co-ordinator,
at Student Council meeting last night, but his idea received
little support and was quashed.]
The suggestion was that by
holding such smokers on campus,
the threat of unfavorable disturbances resulting, as they have
in the past, would be diminished.
The motion, if it had passed,
would not have meant that the
Applied Science Undergraduate
Society would be compelled to
adhere to the council request.
In support of the idea was Bill
St. John, PRO, who maintained
that unfavorable student publicity would be reduced. Referring
to such prestige-boosting activities as blood drives and money-
raising campaigns, St. John complained that, "all the good work
that's been done, is undone."
Nuttall agreed that it would
"certainly do oway with all the
pportunlties for obtaining bad
Howard Beck, special events
chairman, countered with, "We
don't exist for the prime purpose of establishing public relations with downtown."
Realizing that a campus
smoker would eliminate the usual
type of refreshments, Dick Underhill, vice-president, stated
that   "engineers   have   just

Under talented direction of
Dorothy Somerset and Phil
Keatley, cast of 100 excited
students, professional actors,
Dr. MacKenzie, and certain
faculty members have at last
been whipped into shape for
one of the biggest and best
shows in Vancouver entertainment.
And what a show! Every faculty on the campus has contributed something to the Blue
and Gold Revue.
Special effects from the
Chemistry   department,   Tom
Tom drums, gallons of paint
for hilarious backgorunds by
Cliff Robinson, all number
among hundreds of properties
and sound effects.
Dress rehearsals over the
weekend and this week saw
everybody consuming gallons
of soup and coffee as they
worked out final details of the
terrific show.
"Ready to collapse" on Sunday are directors Dorothy
Somerset and Phil Keatley.
John Brockington, who wrote
the sensational music for the
show, has worked out every
one of hundreds of pages of
music for the Revue skits.
The music was arranged for
two pianos by Lawrence Wil
son back in easlern Canada.
Skits, written by Province
columnist Eric Nicol and radio
author Ernie Perrault, have
caused interruptions In every
rehearsal session so far with
uncontrollable outbursts of
laughter among cast, all obviously enjoying the show.

Free   Enterprise?
Text boks at UBC cost up to 101% more
than they do at the University of Washington, not many miles away. The Canadian tariff
accounts for a part of the increase, but is
not the major cause.
The trouble rests with the Canadian
agents ol American publishing firms. As a
service to American publishers (it certainly*
isn't a service to Canadian book buyers),
these agents handle the sales and distribution of books in Canada. For this service
they mark up the price of the books about
20%. They sign binding contracts with the
American firms, blocking all shipments of
books to Canada not handled through their
offices, and preventing book stores from deal-
log directly with the publishers.
One Toronto book agent, for example,
recently signed such a contract with the University of Washington press. A beet which
formerly sold here for about $1.50 would now
cost over $3, with the additional price markup and cost of shipping the book from Washington to Ontario and then back to British
Columbia. And nothing can be done about it
until the contract expires.
To improve this shameful situation pressure must be put on American publishing
firms to make more satisfactory arrangements
for Canadian distribution. The campus bookstore, on this and other campuses, should
buys as few books as possible from those
agents that are the worst offenders, getting
books from other sources whenever this is
feasible (such as when British publishing
houses print the same book).
The National Federation of Canadian
University Students (NFCUS) should investigate the problem and exert pressure on the
American firms. If the pressure is strong
enough they could be prevailed upon to revise their contracts with the Canadian agents.
Facts To Be Faced
Professor E. McPhee, head of the Commerce department, came up with some revealing statements at a student meeting last
Tuesday. Actually, the Professor merely reiterated remarks that Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie had made in a recent radio broadcast.
McPhee said that within ten years, nt
the present rate of secondary and high school
enrollment,, the student population at this
university will number close to ten flWusand.
Further, it was. pointed out that pare ate
insufficient buildings, facilities a|| equipment now. The Professor said that the estimated increase will become evident in three
McPhee at that same meeting made a
statement that ,to us financial laymen, seemed to be the contradiction of the year. He
said that the board of governors are going
to try to "hold the line" on fee increases. This
very admirable stand on the questioa by the
board brings a small question to our ininds—
how . . . ?
Let's face facts. The LSE wants (and has
every right to request) more money |ow, the
MAD is not exactly loaded, more Jtudents
means increased outlets for student activities,
adequate student accommodations are needed (something better than the glorified Fair-
view shacks we have now), the administration is faced with the problem of providing
for ten thousand students with provisions inadequate for five thousand (and we don't
want that measured in terms of "huts") and
so and and so oh.
We risk being obvious in saying that this
tikes money.  .
The student body and the faculty for
once have something in common. These problems have to bo faced now. It is time the)
student's representatives got together with
the board of governors or other suitable administration body and started making some
rapid decisions and planning some constructive actions towards the solution of these
pressing problems.
If this is not done and done immediately
it could be that the students of ten years
hence will be awarding two trekker awards—
the second one for the famous students' "trek"
of 1955 for increased government grants to
cover the cost of mounting student needs.
Forceful Faculty Fiasco
They've done it before and they|re done
it again. The students of the faculty of Applied Science have expressed their ^opinion
of the editorial policy of the Ubysseyln their
usual manner—by force.
Perturbed over an editorial which appeared in Friday's Ubyssey, the Applied Science students stole every copy of the paper
on which they could lay their hands.
Not particularly caring about the fact
that The Ubysseys are paid for by each
student, or the possible repercussions this
action might have downtown, the Applied
Science students went right ahead with their
own method of criticism, or is it censorship?
The fact that they finally brought the
papers back to the Publications office has
little to do with the opinions which the downtown press has of this matter. To them; and
to the whole journalistic world, forceful suppression of editorial opinion is the worst
crime which may be committeed against the
press. It is this ideal of freedom of expression which we are fighting for today, and
when a group of university students try their
hand at censorship by force, what may be
expect of others?
The EUS executive cannot really be
blamed lor the incident. It is the work of a
group of 1st and 2nd year Sciencemen that
has given the university a black eye, in this
case, last Wednesday's incident and most of
the others for which Applied Science students
have been responsible for.
We have no real grudge against the EUS
executive, they are sincerely trying to control this attitude which appears to prevail
among the younger members of the Applied
Science faculty.
We hope the EUS executive can explain
to their students the folly of their actions
at this time. We are on the thin edge with
the public now, gentlemen, let's watch our
step. *
Students To Get Chance
The dormant student spirit which this
university's lot seems lo be, has a terrific
chance to show its fangs this week when the
first Varsity Revue hits the boards,
If a smashing success this year, indications point lo the Blue and Gold Revue becoming an annual variety show, providing
students wilh a laugh at themselves, and
tho public with a clever satire on university
life they would not otherwise know anything
UBC alum's have provided the script,
and wilh Eric Nicol and Ernie Perrault on the
job, there can be little doubt of its comedy
content. Music was composed by John Brockington, another UBC grad, and the cast consists entirely of undergraduates, graduates
or faculty members, including the Good Doctor himself.
Those who have worked their hearts out
on this thing are fervent in their hope that
this critical first showing will be accepted by
all who attend. They are confident that it's
good and want to see the idea perpetuated.
The rest is up to you, the student body.
Hastily Conceived
Editor, The Ubyssey:
The second editorial in Friday's Ubyssey calls for some
explanation. The editorial states
that the other campus political
clubs had approved the proposed LPJ>, club constitution and
had raised no objections when
in fact both the Liberal Club
president and the CCF Club
president voiced protest over
the distribution of fees and the
form of the proposed constitu
tion which were the same reasons that it was turned down
by the Student's Council.
The first recommendation of
the Political Council was
against the v approval -of the
Constitution because it was not
a club constitution. Then after
two hastily conceived by-laws
had been added ("L This club
shall be called the U.B.C. L.P.
P. club. 2. The officers shall
/be president and the secretary*
treasurer.") the political council gave limited support to the
proposed constitution with a
vote of 2-0 with two abstentions and one political club absent.
The editorial also says a political club cannot go against the
national party for fear of being thrown out. Yet last year
the Liberal Club passed a resolution advocating the public
ownership of the B.C.E. and
the B.C.T. which was pushed
through the West Point Gray
Liberal Association but which
was rejected later by the City
Association. For this politically
questionable action the campus
Liberal Club was not disowned by the Liberal party but was
thanked for Its enthusiasm.
The other campus political
clubs have business like constitutions which indicates their
adherence to the party line.
This is apparently what the
Student's Council in general
and Mr. Underhill in particular
wants and they have a right to
ask for it.

Chairman, Political Council
Thou's Holiest
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I find myself in the unusual
position of defending the Engineers for the little fracas they
encountered after their smoker.
It has become generally recognized and accepted, certainly in Britain and on the Continent, that students . working
under pressure will, from time
to time, give vent to their feel
ings in the form of spontaneous demonstrations. No one
can deny that the applied science men are working under
such a strain. From the information I have gleaned, no property damage was done, and
the only disturbance Was caused by a 'snake' parade tying up
traffic. Under such extreme
provocation the police were
compelled to handcuff several
of the students—surely a.drastic way to put a stop to the
antics of a few high spirited
The editorial in Friday's
Ubyssey in a 'holier than thou*
attitude, takes the Engineers to
task for ruiriing public relations with the citizens of Vancouver. Relations, with most of
Vancouver'* citizens will remain unaltered; The incident
will nfost likely do no more
than provoke a smile from most
That section of the population who will squeal with dismay will never feel anything
but enmity towards UBC. That
section of the 'elite' who can
find nothing but criticism of
Varsity no matter whether it
be In Ihe field of athletics, administration, or the extra-curricular organizations will never
be placated. The headlines appearing in a downtown newt-
papers amounting to nothing
more than sheer sensationalism
are not going to influence the
majority of Vancouver's citizens.
If the Pub's Board are really
concerned with maintaining
good relations with the people
of Vancouver, and of impressing the public with their maturity, then I suggest that in future
years they desist from riding a
float downtown and squirting
beer over that "very impressionable" public. No sir, this
editorial is nothing more than
a piece of self righteous humbug.

Lyon made his report to students' council Monday night With
the explanation that the additional services which would be
provided after the new fee was
instituted would not warrant
such an increase.
Biggest change would be installation of a full-time national
president in addition to the present full-time secretary. Salary
for such a president could be
covered by a much smaller fee
raise, it was felt by Feltham
and Lyon,
"Delegates to the conference
seemed to have a'pre-conceivd
notion that there must be an
increase," said Lyon. "There is
really no way to spend it," he
Lyon suggested to eouncil that
UBC's Alma Mater Society withdraw from NFCUS rather than
keep paying greater amounts for
smaller returns.
Both delegates feh that in spite
of the former Increases in fees,
from six cents to 20 cents in

They recommended that ctiun-

matter of the extra levy until

Thunderbirds Hockey Line-up A Surprise - Even To Coach
The UBC hockey team will
not only be a surprise to
the opposing coach on Wednesday night, but Varsity
Coach Dick Michell will be
surprised if he has a hockey
team at all.
The 'Birds were scheduled
to hold a practise in the Forum on Sunday morning but
Coley Hall's Canucks, who
by the looks of things don't
even need to practise, took
over the ice and the 'Birds
had to cancel their workout.
This left Coach Mitchell in
the slightly ridiculous position of holding his first prac
tise on Monday night and
being forced to take the ice
against New Westminster on
Wednesday night in a regular league game at the Forum.
The only definite returnees
from last year's team are de-
fencemen Cliff Frame and
Mike' Giroday. Last year's
stalwarts—Jim Todd, Steve
Gryschuk, Bill Sherwood,
Bob Grew and Herbie Hay-
worth (who, fool that he is,
got married) will not be back
this year.
The only bright spot on m
otherwise dark horizon is the
fact   that   Howie  Topping,
last year's goalie for the PNE
Indians, may be between
the pipes for the 'Birds this
year. It has also been rumoured that footballers Jack
Hutchison and Charlie James
may turn out after football
coach Coryell is through
with them.
In view of this bleak situation Coach Mitchell would
certainly appreciate it if anyone who has ever been on
skates and is interested in
shedding a little blood for
the UBC hockey team would
turn out for the practise. It
is expected that the league
will allow Dick to dress as
many players as he wishes
for the first few weeks, so
how about supporting UBC
and turning out for the
The new league, designed
to replace the Commercial
Hockey League of last sea-
soh, is comprised of four
teams; Kerrisdalei Forum,
New Westminster and UBC.
UBC will be playing over
age. The other ,three teams
will retain their junior status
and can take part in junior
playoffs at the end of the
It is understood the nev/
league   has   been   given   a
month to produce crowds
large enough to convince operators of Kerrisdarle, Forum
and New Westminster rinks
that it can at least pay its
way. So how about giving the
'Birds a little support this
year? The schedule of the
'Birds will be published in
this illustrious sports page—
so be sure to look for it.
As if Coach Mitchell did
not have enough problems
getting together a team the
league schedule has made it
doubly difficult., The 'Birds
must play two games a week
until December 9—-anyone—
for studies?
However, the schedule of
exhibition games more than
compensates for this tough
schedule. In March the
'Birds will fly to Colorado for
two games in Denver and
two games in Colorado
Springs against the University of Denver. In February
the University of Alberta
wil be here to play the 'Birds'
for the Hamber Cup which
the Albertans won last year
in Edmonton.
The league got underway
last Friday night at the Ker-
risdale Arena When Kerris-
dale defeated New Westminster 4-2 in  overtime.    The
game was worth more thar
the fifty cents admission buj
if the crowd was any indij
cation of things to come thj
league will not last long.
After the full 60 minutes ol
play the teams were dead)
locked at 2-2. In the overtime
Kerries   went   ahead   on
fine goal by Dale Frost. Thei|
Westminster drew t h e 1'
goalie and played a six-mai
attack in an effort to tie thJ
game up again. That was thl
signal for Frost to grab th[
puck and pass it to Creigr
ton who scored into the opeJ
net for the Kerries' fourtl
and clinching goal.
Birds Kick Away Game To
Pacific Lutheran 19-6
Last Game Disappoints Coach And
Fans As Birds Scoring Punch Failed
'■;':' user-tint
Lady luck and hapless lack of scoring punch ganged up
on the UBC Thunderbirds Saturday as they dropped a 19-6
decision to a' weaker than usual Pacific Lutheran club out at
Varsity Stadium.
The Birds, though trying hard all the way, managed to do
<the wrong thing at the right time. Passes caromed off defenders
for touchdowns, ends dropped crucial aerials and the attack
staled in pay-off territory time and time again, much to the
chagrin of the Birds mentor Don Coryell.
(Having grabbed the ball from
the Gladiators right after the
kickoff the Birds settled down
to the business of making touchdowns. Gordy Flemons called
the signals, the ball was snapped
t|o halfbacks charged into the
hj|e but Flemons had kept the
leather. He turned and threw a
30 yard pass to end Charley
Jsmes which skittered off the
C§lgary boys' finger-tips, as he
rsced in the clear.
.That, fans, set the mood of
tie whole game; the Varsity
came so close to winning, but
dose only counts in horseshoes.
Little All-American Ron Billings showed his worth Saturady
as he sparked the visitors with
his dazzling speed around the
ends and his kicking ability. His
one touchdown was of the fluke

Each Draw On
Muddy Fields
Varsity 3 • Dominion 3
Chiefs 2 - North Burnaby 2
For the third successive Sunday the Varsity soccer team
has had to settle for a draw,
this one a 3-3 tie with Dominions.
Falling in line with Varsity
were the UBC Chiefs who
played North Burnaby Legion
to a 2-2 stalemate.
. Each week the pattern of the
game has been the same—Varsity builds up a lead, loses it,
and then barely missed a winning goal.
This time Rudge's two goals
gave the Blue and Gold a 2-1
lead at the half, and Campbell
made it 3-1 before Dominions
tied it up. Then Dobson missed
the winner as his shot hit the
goal post.
Roger Fox was the whole
story in the UBC Chief's game
a? his two goals gave them a 2-2
dra wwith the powerful Burnaby Legion team.

Distance Race
Noon Today
The big event of the Intra-
murals takes place at noon today when the annual crosscountry will be run.
VOC, who won the team hon- j seconds to go, Price intercepted
in a pass from
Frank Karowski that UBC de-
feneder Jack Hutchinson, in attempting to knock it down, flipped right into his hands. Billings converted.
Trailing 7-0 after the half,
the Birds came out fired up and
started a touchdown march on
the passing of Flemons to James
and Hudson, with the help of
hard running halfs Hutchinson
and Rayment.
The march payed off when
Flemons sneaked over from th
one, but Roger Kronquist didn't
get a chance to convert as the
PLC line charged through to
block his effort.
The Lutes came right back up
the field, however and Brian
touchdown when he took a pitch; round out into his usual form.

Country Race
Run By Harris
Pete Harris, one of UBC's top
distance men  set  a course  re-

Vancouver   cross   country   race
Sunday at Mahon Park ...	
It was the fifth ccross country
out from Karwoskl and hightailed it for the corner, from the
UBC 25.
Fighting like mad to avert
defeat, the Birds took the kick-
off and started back up the field
with only four minutes to full
time. But with 2 minutes and 45
ors last year are favored to repeat this year. John Brick, Peter
Harris and Doug Kyle thc big
individual threats arc not eligible
to run this year so it is anybody's race. This illustrious reporter (Stan Beck) is entered
and is a definite threat.
Track coach Buss Phillips has
announced a novel Innovation in
the cross-country. From this
week on a cross-country will be
run every two weeks.as an intramural event.
The first finishers today will
receive bright red T-shirts and
will run again in two weeks

shirts. At the end, of the year
those who have red T-shirts will
receive a  prize.
