At Monday night's student

a motion asking council support

The committee, composed of
four NFCUS exchange scholars

will meet Monday noon to discuss methods of popularizing
the campaign at UBC.
Plans include two campus surveys to determine the relation
between the cost of living and
student summer earnings, and
information on how many high
school students cannot attend
university for financial reasons.
Results of the two surveys,
to be conducted next term, will
be compiled in a brief for presentation to the Provincial Government.

Council president Dick Underhill at the same time charged
"there is no building plan on the
campus  worthy of the name."
"Financial considerations designate the location of all new
buildings on this campus," he
said, claiming the housing situation was a "hodge podge."
Council's move comes at the
same time as the Alumni Association's Committee on Athletics,
chaired by Mr. C. M. Campbell.
The committee submitted a report of an extensive survey of
the playing field situation of
UBC, Canada, the United States
and Britain.
The report was printed in part
in the Alumni Chroncile, earlier
this fall.
Campbell's committee, after
their survey of the American,
British and Canadian universities, reported Canada, and in
particular, UBC, is well behind
these nations in the proportion
of playing field space per student population.
Per hundred students, Canada
has .21 acres of field, United
States .30, and Britain, 2.03 acres, and UBC .27 acres.
In a phone interview with The
Ubyssey, Campbell criticized
the situation which gives UBC
students such a small amount of
sport space, compared to British
Universities, where any kind of
space is very limited.
He said there is no committee
at the university, or even in Canada which gives consideration to
this problem. Only at the University of Western Ontario has
the situation undergone any

UBC could take a national lead
in the research of the problem
and could begin by taking over
the areas adjacent to the present
playing fields.
The 39.2 acres near the wireless station, of which 32.1 acres
are now available for development, would raise UBC's .27
acreage to .65.
That proportion would be considerably decreased by the expec-
ed increase in enrollment, which
is expected to reach 10,000 in
Furthermore, much of the
14.6 acres now available is unusable because of rain. This situation lessens the available acreage every year and seriously curtails present intramural activity
and absolutely prevents any further expansion of those activities.

He Said It
"I can understand the attitude of some hotels which
draw the color line. It may not be because of color but be-
eaufft they have had trouble where coloured patrons have
attempted to bring in minors."
Hie utter foolishness of this statement by the president
of the B.C. Hotels Association demonstrates the very es-
scene of the present discrimination problem.
While attempting to convey disapproval of racial discrimination the statement contains an implict sanction of
guch a policy.
The problem is now this: Almost everyone is willing,
tVen eager, to acknowledge the evilness of racial discrimin-
tHon; yet many are equally willing to overlook, condone, or
even, practice such a policy, if only in deference to the slim
minority which stubbornly refuses to abandon bigotry.
Tbey feel it profitable to do so.
It is now plain that the time for fighting racial prejudice
with mere propaganda ended long ago. The time has arrived
when the law must be used.
Logic   Is   Logic
United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Henry
Cabot Lodge jr., obviously never included a course in logic
In his university curriculum.
Otherwise he would never have made the statement he
did the other day that "from the standpoint of logic" Rus-
•hV should be expelled from the United Nations.
"If we had known the way they (the Russions) were*
going to act," continued the U.S. Ambasador, "I don't think
wi would have ever been in favor of admitting them."
"It won't last" and "it's our only hope" were the two
nest prevalent cries raised when the UN was formed in
19*5. It has lasted. It is still the world's only hope of survival.
Mr. Lodge should realize that the UN exists
ill tiie political sphere precisely because the possibility of
conflict has been recognized. This is the major purpose of the
UN—to settle differences between countries or power blocs
and hence prevent war.
If the UN, as it states in its preamble is "determined to
s*ve succeeding generations from the scourge of war",
Russia must be retained within its framework. To expel a
country, whether or not that country is living up to the
principles and purposes of the UN, which has some form
of control over approximately 38% of the world's population,
is to negate the value of the UN.
To expel the Soviet Union—and  expelling  the  Soviet
Union would mean the certain withdrawal of at least seven
other members—would make the UN little more than NATO—
a combination of Western democracies for mutual defence.
And if there is one thing that this century has shown it
is, that Christian or European civilization is no longer supreme. We must learn to live with and help the awakening
Eastern world. It is illogical to continue a world government, or an attempt at it, which represents only half the
Peace is only possible if East and West learn to live side
by side on a basis of mutual toleration even if they detest one
another's way of life.
What   You   Can   Do
Civil Liberties Union has proved by its recent survey
that a serious amount of racial discrimination exists in Vancouver. But all CLU could do is bring this awful truth to
the attention of the public. If the public refuses to take up
the challenge; CLU will have wasted its time.
Here is how you, the individual citizens will end discrimination.
1—Ask any public establishment you enter, particularly
beverage rooms, whether they cater to all persons regardless
of race. If they do not, tell them you can only give your
patronage where discrimination does not exist.
Write the B.C. Hotels Association, 560 Howe St., the
Beverage Dispensers' Union, 438 West Pender St., demanding that each take immediate action against discriminatory
hotels. Write the City Council. City Hall, 12th and Cambie
St., requesting that they pass.a city anti-discrimination bylaw, which they rejected only several weeks ago,
3—Urge all your friends and acquaintances to follow
these suggestions.
In two cases during the recent survey thc mixed test
groups were ottered drinks by other patrons (despite the
management's warning that Ihey too would he cut off). One
of these sympathetic groups, consisting of six, argued vigorously and swore never to patronize his business again. It
was protest letters two years ago by the Trades and Labour
Council that resulted in several hotels dropping their discrimination policies. The citizen mustn't underestimate his
powers. Gerald Daechscl, Arts 4
Comrade Wolf?
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Your editorial expressing apprehension that academic freedom ut UBC is in danger because there may be discrimination against Communist in faculty hiring, reminds me of a
little fable. The fable happens,
aptly enough, to be Russian,
maybe it was one of Krylov's.
Anyhow, the story went like
this: Ivan, a shepherd, was
sitting near the gate of his
fenced-in pasture. In the lush
grass, sheep, goats and other
cattle were fteding and having
their quiet existence.
Along came the Wolf and
said, please let me into the pasture. I too, would like to feed
on that lush grass in there.
Ivan, whose experience did
not include meetlrfg wolves,
said, but you are not like the
rest of my animals, how can I
let you in?
But the Wolf said, how
simple you are, can't you see,
I too, have four legs and a tail,
and fur all over?
Ivan scratched his head and
finally admitted that the
Wolf's argument was irrefutable: four legs, a tail, and fur,
just like a sheep, a goat, or a
So he opened the gate and let
the Wolf in. And, the sad c6n-
sequence was, the Wolf turned
out, after all, to be entirely different from Ivan's other charges, and promptly set about
feeding not with, but on them.
Now I don't remember what
the moral of the little fable
was, presumably, that, although
the Woll was sufficiently like
the other animals, he didn't
really care for grass. -
And neither are Communists
interested in the green pasture
of academic freedom: Comrade
McGugan had all the academic
freedom in the world to put his
case for Marxism before the
innocent lambs of SCM. But
what he really appreciated was
the opportunity to draw a little
blood from the Faculty hiring
authorities. On an unsubstantiated charge, of course!
So, Mr. Editor, let's not be
too much like simple Ivan.
Let the Communists roam the
countryside as they like, publish their papers and make their
speeches to whoever will listen,
certainly. But to conclude that
rumors of excluding Communists is an indication of restriction of academic freedom is as
non sequitor as saying you* are
starving a wolf by not permitting him to eat grass, when
he has lots of meat to cat.
W. J. Rempel, Law 3
Editor, The  Ubyssey:
Thc president would .justify
the federal grants to universities
by excluding those institutions
from the field of education envisaged by section 93 of the
BNA Act. His interesting and
useful remarks on educational
philosophy ignore some of the
most important human facta
about our national life and the
kind of world we live in.
Some Quebec citizens are
convinced that a conditional
grant for universities is an en-
roachment on their provincial
If we are to acheive unity
and cooperation democratically,
it will not be accomplished on
the assumption that legislative
feats justified by sophisticated
arguments are more influential
in Quebec than language, religion, legal code on the plans
of   Abraham.
It is unrealistic to say to
Quebec "You are Nationalistic
and uncooperative and you'will
not accept my constitutional
definition of education, designed to alter your conception of
the basic premises of Canadian
legal logic. Pay up," and then
expect cooperation.
Furthermore, it is contradictory to call for unity and cooperation in the world, villify-
ing Quebec nationalism, and
then advocating Canadian nationalism. Nationalism has contributed to loo many conflicts.
A more effective course of
action would be, as Dean Angus
suggested, to work for a compromise. When some hostility
lias been removed and goodwill creali i, it may be easier
to re-define education in section
93 so that the dominion and
provinces will have concurrent

A Shame
Editor, The Ubyssey:
It is indeed a shame, There
is so much to be done and so
few do it worthily. Mankind
needs everyone, the one gifted
with a single talent as well as
the one with ten talents, to
work for the good of humanity.
It is a shame then, that there
are some who insist on misusing their talents.
To be more specific, Archie
McGugan can do more for civilization by putting his talents
to work against Communism as
well as aganist thc evils which
breed subversion and which
make Communist rule preferable to the existing system.
Certainly Mr. McGugan
should have learned by now
that theoretical Communism or
Marxism is not and lor centuries will not bo possible
simply because man is far from
the stage of maturation necessary for Communistic living.
Enforcement will not hasten
the period.
Communists claim the necessity of a totalitarian state
during the transition from democratic capitalism to Communism, but they neglect to consider the fact that often theories cannot be made practical
and that the transitory totalitarian state may have to remain in force perpetually. On
the other hand, maybe the
chiefs in Moscow are fully
aware of the consequences and
propagandize the fantasy of
Communism for their own ends
to secure power and a world
Mr. McGugan claims the
"Marxist philosophy guides the
lives of one third of mankind
and has millions of supporters
in the rest of the world." I beg
to disagree, in fact state that it
is a falsehood. Millions of
people under the Communist
regimes who are not in favour
of Communism have three
choices: to submit unwillingly;
to reject the rule and suffer
the consequences of imprisonment or extermination, or to
escape through the Iron Curtain. From the most recent
country to be overrun by a
Communist dictatorship comes
this report (Time. No. 22 issue):
"Yet from North Viet Nam,
since Geneva, about 450,000
Vietnamese have escaped
through chinks in the new Viet
Minh monolith, leaving the antiseptic tyranny of Uncle Ho for
the Sotith's chaotic freedom.
The articulate among these
huddles of refugees complain
that the Viet Mah has destroyed tin- customs and friendlinesses ol' the past, and has spat
upon family ties and religiorr."
Guiding light for one-third
of mankind? Then why is membership in the Communist party
in the USSR restricted to such
a small group?
My advice. Mr. McGugan, is
that you change teams and direct your talents for the good
of humanity, not against it.

Not a Pig Sty
The Editor, Ubyssey:
In your Issue of Tuesday last
there appeared an editorial
which dealt with the student
housing accomodation problem,
a subject which, by now, should
be familiar to even the most
casual reader. Toward the end
of this article appeared the quotation:
"Last year the Ubyssey, in a
special edition illustrated the
squalid living conditions forced
on UBC students. We are not
insane enough to ask for big-
' ger and better pigsties."
I, the undersigned, live in
Acadia Camp and am as fully
aware as the next person that
I am not living in Hycroft
Towers. I recognize the pressing
need for permanent dormitories
and I also credit the University
authorities with realizing the
present inadequacy. I accept at
full value their oft-mentioned
intention to build permanent
dormitories as soon as it is economically feasible.
However, I disagree strongly
with the methods used by the
Ubyssey's Board of Directors
in trying to improve the situation.
I am no! living in a pig-sty,
as implied by your writer, who
is either entirely ignorant of
the present living conditions of
which he writes, or else, entirely ignorant of the details of
mixed farming to which he
makes reference, or, as I suspect, of both.
Untrue and irresponsible
comparisons such as appeared
in last issue do little for the
housing issue and only serve to
torture the rational mind. They
also indicate a rather juvenile
approach to an otherwise adult
problem, or else show the hand
of an overly ambitious writer
who is trying to dazzle the reader with thc footwork of a pseudo-crusading   journalist.

MP's To Probe
Scholarship Aid
TORONTO—(CUP)—Scholarships for ten thousand university students across Canada is the objective of the National
Federation of University Students' scholarship committee.
_ . _ Members
Smack, Eek
CUP-They were about to kiss
when suddenly a stone toppled
earthward. The girl saw it,
screamed, and was pulled out
of harms  way  by her hero.
Thus the tradition of the University of Toronto's Kissing Arch
was born.
The tradition decrees that all
young couples passing under the
arch for the first time must kiss
or it will fall upon them.
It is a great help to men with
superstitious girl friends, and
girls with shy boy friends.
It is said that the kiss is, in
a sense, sacred, since it ig offered as a tribute for the saving of
the young girl years ago.
The custom which was started
in the early twenties, petered
out during the Second World
War, but recently a group of
Toronto men have organized
The Society for the Preservation of the Kissing Arch Tradition claim that they have never
come across a girl who has refused to kiss under the arch.,
of parliament are
meeting in Toronto with NFCUS
officials to discuss the plan to
give scholarship and bursary assistance to one in every four
Canadian students.
The meeting is part of a nation
wide NFCUS campaign to give
Canadian students financial assistance closer to the level of
other western nations.
NFCUS is supported in its
campaign by the results of a
poll conducted under the direction of the psychology department of the U of T this term.
The poll revealed that over
the last three • years, the total
amount of money which individual students have been able to
realize from summer employment has dropped.
<The poll also revealed that
two percent of students drop
out of university through lack
of funds.
The chairman of the Scholarships Campaign Committee will
confer with Prime Minister St.
Laurent on implementation by
the federal government of the
program to give assistance to
ten thousand students annually.
Idea of barring Communist
profesors from teaching posi-
tions at UBC appealed to
some student councillors Monday night.
Discussing campus LPP head
Archie McGugan's charge the
university "discriminates''
against professors with Marxist beliefs, Alma Mater Society treasurer Ron Bray
claimed he "certainly didn't
wish to be taught by a Communist."
President Dick Underhill
agreed with Bray, stating he
"didn't want to be taught by
a Communist either."
What's  With  This  Nude?

Why all the noise about
the nude? This intriguing subject will be tackled noon to

Campus Cops
Say Crime
Just  Petty'
Campus divisions of the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police reported Thursday that crime at
UBC is confined to petty theiv-
There has been no serious
theft on the campus this year
the  report said.
Petty theft of carelessly left
articles comprises most of the
crime at UBC.
Traffic was reported on the
increase but the new lane on
Chancellor Boulevard was said
to be absorbing the extra movement.
Accidents are on the increase
but are of a  minor scale.
On the whole, the report said,
the situation is no worse than
in   past  years.

Gals Down Sports
Editor,   Enter  P. 4
By The Editor (Bruised)
It was a hard fight, maw, but I finally lost.
But the loss was nothing new. It's been suffered by every
•ports editor whose name .ever graced? these pages.
Wom&i's sports finally caught me In a dark corner, and by
threat of serious penalties exacted a promise that they would
get some publicity (a nasty word, and the only tie by which pubsters have any friends.)
Through a process of constant onslaught, invasion of the
sanctuary (or Is It sanctum) known as the SPORTS OFFICE, the
petticoat brand of athletics, has forced itself into public reknown.
And the females' record is too good to let itself continue a
closed secret for long. So here it is.
At the Pacific International Grasshockey tournament, which
they win every year, the galloping gals beat College of Idaho 4-0,
Washington State 8-0, and Oregon State 3-0.
Fortunately for the rest of the twenty-odd teams, the UBC
aggregation did net get a chance to meet them in the weekend
aeriea. Oherwiae ihe record would be even more impressive.
No other campus team can equal this particular record of
the girls. Not only are they unbeaten in this eight-year old tournament, they have never been scored on during those eight years.
UBC's big guns were Louise Heal with S goals, and Colleen
Kelly with 3. Next year the tournament comes to UBC.
Basketball is currently the big game for the Women's Athletic Directorate the girls' little known equivalent of MAD.
UBC enters two hoop squads in local play, UBC and Thunderettes. The UBC squad is even-steven _o fbr, with the record of
two wins and two losses, having beat Kits twice and losing to the
powerful Eilers and the Majorettes.
The Junior girls' team has not won yet, but should hit their
stride before the season is finished.
The junior grits' team has not won yet, but should hit their
atrlde before the season is finished.
Louise' Heal, of field hockey fame, enters the picture again.
She is also the second highest scorer in the women's league. The
girls, incidntally, play men's rules.
In tennis, another of these sports in which UBC ranks with
the western best, the gals will add their strength to the spring
wars. It's a new club for girls this year and has a crowd of outstanding players.
Lee Davenport holds the 1995 singles titles for the Seattle,
Tacoma, and Portland Pacific Northwest championships and half
the doubles title tor those same three cities.
The owner of the other half of the pairs titles is Sylvia Downs,
•bo of UBC, and runner-up to Lee in the singles matches.
Shiela Kingham looks like a good prospect along with Pam
Rose, holder of many doubles titles around the city. The four
girls and others look like strong contenders for springtime honours.
Skiing is one of the sports the femmes have invaded and they
invade it well. The ski club has tested the wind and sees snow on
the horizon.
Waxing lessons, girls, will be held in the gym Friday at 4:30.
All ski club members out. You might even win the Northwest
Intercollegiate Championships, in which UBC placed third last
year, in asix-team field led by some of the bigger stateside universities.
Go to it gals, you're doing line.
TWO MEMBERS of the IJBC women's basketball teams
show how the game is played by the girls. Elma Gavin
(12) and Betty Best perform under the hoop in good style
for the unpublicized teams. Just for the record, let it be
known Elma netted the ball.
Sports Editor-KEN LAMB
Hill  Lead
To  Win
Five  Birds  Make
"Mention   Roster"
Though the football season, for UBC at least, is over, the
pigskin pluggers have fired one last shot.
Buried in the welter of thef-	
East-West success, in which, as
Athletic News Director John
Springer says, "everyone won
except the Athletic Roundtable"
was the news that five of the
Thunderbirds placed on the honorable mention list of the Evergreen Conference.
Centre Ron Stewart, guard
Bob Brady, tackle Pete Gregory, halfback John Newton
and fullback Jim Boulding all
made the unofficial "third
team" roster.
Brady    was    all    conference
guard last year, Stewart was a
rookie in the conference, Newton was playing his first year
of football,  and Boulding was
out for the last two games with
an   injured  arm.
Near  End
Of Season
Intramural volleyball, soccer
and table tennis are nearing the
end of their seasons with the
semi-finals going this week and
the fnials going next  week.
The volleyball semi-finals
start Wednesday, November 24,
and the finals go on Thursday,
December 2nd, at 1:15 p.m. The
table tennis finals will feature
Engineers taking on either Zetes
or Fort Camp on November 25,
at 12:40 p.m.
Despite the mud, the soccer
finals will go November 29, with
Phi Delta, who beat Engineers,
playing the winner of the Kapp;t
Sig-Alpha   Delta  battle.
A record like that is something to be proud of.
Boulding returned for the
Toronto game and tore the ligaments in his knee. He underwent an operation Sunday.
The East-West game, after the
successful showing of the Birds,
ii expected to become an annual
affair, being played possibly on
alternate years,
Thte ideal set-up of course,
would be to have the Big and
"Little" Grey Cup games on
the same day at alternate ends
of the continent.
Though the roundtable has
suffered from a blow in the
prestige it and the university
gained through Saturday's game
should certainly be enough to
make the affair an annual one.
Gerry Kenyon's basketball Braves added to the general
joyous feeling of success in UBC hoop circles Tuesday night
in King Ed gym when they beat Kivans 58-45.
Led by the bucket raiding of
Come to the Acadia Camp
Fri., Nov. 26, 9-1
Orchestra Refreshments
Jomn McNec and Gary Hill, with
19 and 18 points respectively,
the Braves won their first game
in four starts of a season that
saw them get off to a slow start.
They trounced Lord Byng 63-
20 Saturday night, but it was a
game against a team hardly comparable with the Junior League,
which is the second best league
proved when they soundly
in the city, a point Marpole
trounced the Senior B CYO club
last week.
Kenyon was only moderately
pleased with his teams' performance, despite their win. He says
the game was too ragged to be
called good, but it was the victory the Braves needed.
They meet Marpole next Tuesday at King Ed in what should
be the game of the week.

NW Downs Birds
For Fourth Loss
A hard - checking, League-leading New Westminster
Hockey team handed UBC Thunderbirds their fourth loss in
as many starts Wednesday night at the forum.
The Birds, showing only occa-V
sional flashes of ice brilliance,
held with the league-leaders until the end of the first period
when Leach slapped a screen
shot past goalie Howie Thomas.
Thomas had earlier in the first
period suffered a two-stitch cut
on his nose from a flying puck.
He went into the dressing room
for repairs, but returned to play
a standout game. New Westminster opened the scoring when
Wouk, who picked up five points
during the evening, punched the
puck past Thomas a t6:08,
UBC tied it up with McKnight
scoring with, an assist from Moe
The Royal City boys left the
ice with a 2-1 lead. The second
period featured a goal by New
Westminster, with UBC a man
short, and a pair of five-minute
penalties awarded for a short
brawl between UBC's Bob Died-
rich, and NW's Leech. NW struck
for a couple of quickies early in
the final session, both goals
coming on a scramble in front
of the UBC net. Mundell slapped
in Todd's face-off with three
minutes to go, to make it 5-2.
Standout for UBC were goalie
Thomas and defenseman Ian
Brown, recently returned from
the football wars.
Killed  By
The big Intramural Golf Tournament, which was to have been
completed by December 6, has
been cancelled due to the lack
of initiative on the part of the
contestants who failed to either
play their games or get their
scorecards in, in time.
Due to the recent rains a
serious water hazard has appeared out on the University greens
and made playing quite uncomfortable; unless one wears hip-
rubber boots.
Since may of the games were
already far behind schedule the
tournament was dunked, while
plans for a one-day tornament
next spring, were drawn up at
the last Intramural meeting.
The tournament might have
still been played despite the
adverse weather if students had
kept up with the schedule and
played their games.

As a first year Arts student considering your future career, why not
enquire about Chartered Accountancy? It is a fine profession, offering
interest, variety, opportunity and substantial rewards.
A new scheme has been developed—the B.Comm-C.A. Plan—by which,
through taking a combined course of University studies in the summer and
practical training in a Chartered Accountant's office in the winter (on a
.salary basis), you can obtain your B.Comm. degree and become a C.A. in a
shorter time than if you were to take your B.Comm. first and then your
C.A. afterwards.
