of the hundreds at the display of the 'Indian Treasure Van'
exhibition in the Gym Tuesday night.

Sale of exhibits will go towards improvement of educational
facilities in India. —Ubyssey photos by Hux Lovely

Marches Again
Undergraduate Society.Committee's yearn-
ings for multiple representation on Council
may become a reality next week unless students realize the dangers of such an arrangement.
UBC has been trying to foist some of its
members on Council for the last three years
However, the obvious need for Council reorganization is especially favorable to these
demands now, as students are likely to adopt
the suggested alteration of Council composition merely in the belief that no change could
be worse than the status quo.
Tbe main argument in favour of larger
USC representation is the claim that these
members of Council would be directly responsible to subsidiary bodies, larger and more
comprehensive in representation than LSE
or the athletic organizations. The USC members, like the LSE president, would have to
report back to the undergraduate societies.
There seems to be a lapse of logic in this
argument. First, USC is already represented
dn Council by its chairman. The present
incumbent has interpreted hi.s duties as representing the views of USC on Council rather
than airing his own views as an elected officer.
He is, consequently, in a similar position as
the presidents of MAD, WAD, WUS and
However, USC claims that they represent
ALL the students on this Campus, or, in other
words, the number of students they represent
is larger than that of any other organization.
The hitch, of course, lies in the very fact that
they do represent all the students. Every
student is automatically a member of one or
another of the undergraduates societies. This
does not mean trwl every student is vitally
interested in the activities of his iituk-r.e.i-.ifl-
uate society. In fact, the Arts Undergraduate
Society does not even attempt to be first and
foremost an effectual body representative of
its members. Il is only a glorified Special
Events Committee. Other undergraduate societies exist as mere convenors of balls. Disregarding even these facts, we can still see
that membership in an undergraduate society
can be a very passive matter.
On the other hand,.members of subsidiary
organizations of LSI'! or MAI) belong to these
groups by virtue of active interest in their

Kditor, The Ubyssey,
Dour Sir:
Ih fairness to both the fraternity and non-Irate in Ity students on
this campus I would like to take,
this opportunity to explain and
clarify the position or the UW
moirifoers of \'hi Delta Theta with
regard to tiie recent expulsion of
a follow cliuptor by our national
executive.. »
Mr. McLeod has condemned
our clitiptor for belonging to an
International organization which
has In its constitution a discriminatory clniise. We at VftC arc
emially as ashamed of this irrational condition placed upon
our membership and would ask
Alr. McLeod to do, as we did, and
strongly voice disapproval of
such >x constitutional anachronism to liotfi our general head-
illiarters and to the elements lu
our International fraternity which
condone s u v Ii discriminatory
practices. .    ,
However, in the same breath, I
would ask Mr. McLeod not to
Judge our chapter because ot Us
sell-admitted constitutional de-
locts. Because 1 feel strongly that
tho merits or the fraternity system far outweigh Its dofects,
and because, I believe that fraternities must inevitably keep
pace with the trends of social
evolution or perish, nnd because
tudent Pr
should be enlarged as expression of its superior numbers consequently does not hold
The representation of any organization by
more than one member on Students' Council
holds however, another quite different
danger. The individual organizations are represented on Council to be able to voice their
portion to their numerical strength. After all,
prlin I their numerical strength. After all,
they derive their membership on Council
from a mandate of the whole student body—
not from the organizations they represent.

LSE can voice the wishes of his organization,    nre morally justified In remain-
vote on Ihe strength of his general mandate
according lo his conscience, and  take part

Even if the theoretical claims of "broader
representation" appeal to many students, one
look at the practical side f the picture should
be enough to convince anybody that the proposed change is highly undesirable.
The USC members are to be chosen by a
conclave of the undergraduate society presidents. Past experience in campus politics has
shown that such "elections" can be fixed by
allied blocks of societies. A block of six societies could force through a slate for all three

. , Law I,
Tweedsmulr, Park, much In the
news these days, is mostly
thought of at present In connection with an industrial development. Some people remember also that it was set aside as a park
for a reason. Archeologlsts have,
or had, a speclalled interest of
their own in the area «as the site
of important Indian remains.
When permission was given for
flooding an area of the park which
included the sites of former Indian villages, a .hurry-up archeo-
loglcal rescue job had to be undertaken, ln the summers of l!).r>l
and 1952 Dr. Charles R. Borden
or UBC led expeditions Into the
area to carry out the rescue be-
cil'.s decisions. It could flout a majority of
those elected by the student body as a whole.
Students' Council was aware of these dangers when it turned down a proposal for five
USC members on Council. However, as a
compromise, rather than a matter of principle
Council'voted in favor of the reduced number.
While compromise may be one of the salient
points of statesmanship, this was neither the
lime nor occasion for compromise. The principle of such representation affects the future
activities of the AMS too vitally to be solved
by a momentarily advantageous compromise,
fore it should be too hiLe. These,
expeditions were sponsored Jointly by the provincial government
and the university.' In l!if>l reconnaissance work only was 4one

were carried out.

Boy Doesn't Make Good
Once upon a time there was a nice young
man. This bright young lad came to UBC and
after several years on the campus decided l.o
run for Student Council.
The position he picked was Co-ordinator
of Activities. Our hero was successful in his
campaign and duly elected to the position.
As Co-ordinal.or hi.s job was to see thai
attractions on the campus did not clash. He
was also to avoid, as one of his predecessors
failed to do, booking two dances for the same
hall at the same lime.
Well one day our el'l'icienl little Co-ordinator turned loose his imagination. The California rugger team was making its annual
visit to UBC, This noon-hour game has he-
come a yearly custom at UBC and a good
majority of sludenls usually attend.

Real Threat
Says Ripley
Major threat to our society
does not lie behind the Iron
Curtain, but here within our
own selves.
This is the opinion or It. C. 8.
Ripley, secretary of the Studeni
Christian Movement, held In his
talk to a small crowd In Arts J00
yesterday noon.
Ripley discussed "What threatens peace" and "Peace In Asia."
He was sponsored by the Indian
Students'   Association.
Itli'iley stated that there was a
great tendency In the western
world to put the blame on Communists for anything that went
wrong In our own system.
"Communists a r e convenient
whipping boys, but It Is a dangerous practice because it takes away
the practice of self-criticism."
He said that it was eaBy to
place the blame on something that
w.ub strange and alien, like far orf
Russia. But be said that people
mnst not forget "Communism is
not alien, but a product of a capitalist society."
Ulpley warned that the western
world Is gradually losing Its faith
in itself. "If we recover this faith
we will rectognlze Communism for
what it is."
He said that the breaking up of
Communist meetings (by throwing rotten eggs, etc.) Is just an
instance of the InstnblFlty of our
present day society.
,'We must account for It (Com
munismi of courae but the primary thing is to recover the spiritual basis of our democracy."
"If the present hysteria continues to rise as It is rising we will
be   completely   helpless."
Uipley advised that Hie western
world would have to do more I han
just negotiate for peace with llus

does not accept the same standard of values as the capitalist
world, thus they would never agree.
He maintained that Marxist
theory forbids acceptance of bourgeois Idealism.

Social Credit government, under

attempt to set up a one-billion
dollar revolving fund from which
interest-free loans will be made to
municipalities, repayable at the
depreciation of the housing projects.
Minister of Health and Welfare
Roly Houwnian  will Introduce Ihe
bill which will provide for one-
half of the fund to come from Unemployment Insurance reserves
and the other half to come from
this year's general revenue.
<Vl-\ as Official Opposition, plan
to propose an amendment which
would have the effect of making
the one billion dollar fund available as an outright grant to the
municipalities  for slum clearance,
rather than as a loan.

To Watch Birds And Bears
They should be crawling to get into the UBC Stadium at
noon today.  With the Rugby Series knotted at one game each,
and  the World Cup at stake  today and Saturday, it is  more
than  likely  that  a large  percentage of  local fans should  hilt   lias   been   a   long   time   since'

The MAD prexy suggested that
the war be called off and that the
two organizations get together to
figure out a concrete policy for
distribution of student finances.
Bill Boulding. also spenking at
the meeting, scored a hullseye
when he said: "There just Isn't
enough money to go around."
The fact is    there just Isn't.
CBC lias one of the most extensive extra-curricular programs
of any university in Canada. We
have more clubs, organizations and
sports than most other schools.

the  lowes't.

The question bothering the chief
management right now is whether
they will he able to field a team for

players turned up for the game.
It seems that some of ihe boys had
examination fever and were unable
to get  there.
If the Chiefs cannot field a team
this weekend they will probably
fold up tor the season.
Th"ir record in league play so
far is "> wins. 7 loses and 2 Men.
Tics is the. best record piled up
by the second team for the last few
years. Last year's team didn't win
a single game and. in the previous
two years the team didn't win more
