readily passed the following
minute in connection with campus discrimination:
"WHEREAS the students of
the UBC regard racial and religious discrimination as fundamentally evil,  and;
"WHFRKAS certain campus
organizations practice such discrimination, thereby bringing
the name of the university into
ill repute;
"THEREFORE, be it resolved
that the Alma Mater Society recommend lo the Faculty Council
that all campus organizations
wilh discriminatory clauses be
instructed to remove such clauses within a reasonable time."
AMENDMENTS   REQUESTED
Organizations are also asked
to have proposed by-law amendments posted ten days prior to
the next general meeting which
will be held in the armouries
October t at 12.30. This means
amendments must appear before
12.30  on  September 21.
ADVANCE  PLANNING
A "Campus Activities Calendar" i:: to be published in the
near future, says the memorandum, but organizations planning
activities through the session
must still have them scheduled
through the co-ordinator's office.
Events should be planned well
in advance and booked wjth
Mike Nuttal, Coordinator of
Activities.
Publicization of student
events will be vfacilitated as in

of courl called when thirty
armed freshmen launched attack, 23 offenders were tried by
Chief Justice John Fraser and
received hair-raising and skirt-
raising sentences.
Challenging court decisions
which sentenced frosh to dress-
shortening, barn cleaning and
water treatments, frosh wielded
stirrup-pumps and attempted to
break up the proceedings, but
were beaten off by official engineer police.
THREE ATTACKS
Three attacks were launched
the main one coming immediately after Chief Justice John
Fraser warned his police "to
stop shooting water around—
you may start a riot."
Cries of "next year the Liy-
pond," heard as the engineers
cleared the court, were hotly
denied by Monty MacKay who
had previously promised "There
will be no dunking."
Monty told his police to "cut
it out," adding "1 didn't want it
to  happen."
Herb Stephens, engineer public relations officer, leaped on
the judges', bench and screamed,
"Hey hold it, you dirty rats."
knock it orr
Forcing his way into Frosh
ranks, MacKay demanded they
"knock it off." He added, bitterly, "one year we tried to do
it right ..."
Through clenched teeth, MacKay warned the frosh leaders,
"If we'd brought out all the engineers you never would have
got near this place,"
Court was resumed despite
periodic attacks and counter
attacks in the background.
Appearance of the suspects in
court was forced by holding
textbooks and shoes as bail.
Full attendance of frosh apprehended Tuesday by engineer
peace officers was reported.
SPLENDID CONDUCT
Appreciation for the splendid
conduct of the police in searching for law-breakers was expressed by Heather Symnos.
"They were very sweet," she
said.
Thanks were given to engineer "executioners" by all convicted. Punishment for men
ranged from rubbing flour and
egg in their hair to cleaning of
the Aggie barns.
Defence for the accused by
John Goult, 3rd Law, stressed
the inexperience of the men,
"The poor kid's green — even
his face is green." He also
praised the beauty of the freshettes.
Thorough investigation of the
aspects of each case were given
by   Justices   Fraser,   Neen   and
Pyper, all of the law faculty.
KNEES EXAMINED
In the case of Lorna Bell,
charged with wearing a long
skirt, a doctor's report indicating a "delicate and rheumatic
condition of her knees," and a
thorough examination of the
knees was made before sentence
was  passed.

  a
Only Logical Action
University of B.C. is the third largest
university in Canada. It has one of the most
extensive extra-curricular programs of any
university on the continent.
In conjunction with this varied activities
program, students at UBC are fortunate in
having the lowest Alma Mater Society fee of
any large Canadian university.
University of Toronto has a student fee
of $46. McGill students pay $36 to finance
their extra-curricular program. Queens' AMS
fee is $37 and Western Ontario undergraduates hand over $41 of their hard-earned dollars to their student council.
Meanwhile, among all these overpowering
sums, UBC students manage (and manage Is
the word) to exist on $16, $5 of which goes to
the War Memorial Gym fund and  $1 of
Critical Approach
It is regrettable that few Canadian university students ever seriously consider the
purpose of a university. Not enough even
stop to wonder what they expect to obtain
from the university and whether they are
getting it. This in itself points to a deficiency
in the university and its methods of educa- 0
tion.
Too many are at university only to equip
thems'elves to earn a "good living." And too
many do not question whether they are satisfactorily achieving their purpose or whether
they are going to be satisfied with their goal
when they achieve it.
Periodically a few students come to question the type of education they are getting,
Some justifiably rebel at the absurdity of
copying lecture notes and spitting them back,

which goes  to  the  International  Student's
Service.
The fact that the student program has
managed to exist on the $16 fee, is no indication that it can survive any longer on this
inadequate grant.
With an austerity program underway already this year further serious curtailments
in activities, will inevitably have to come unless the fee is increased.
Students will have their .opportunity to at
least maintain their present AMS program
when they vote on a $2 fee increase on October 2.
It seems clear to us and we hope to all
students, that the only logical action is the
approval of the $2 fee increase.

Leg Show at frosh smoker.
Slavonic Circle Reorganized
"The facts are irrelevant, we are here
to learn how to think," is the cry. "You must
first procure the tools," is the faculty's
squelch. And nothing changes.
Both faculty and students err in their
approach. Many lecturers find it easier to give
their courses a primarily fatcual approach
than to provoke thought. Students find it
easier to either memorize and repeat data, or
rebel at it, than to start thinking.
No advance in knowledge is made by
relying entirely on the earlier authorities.
Critical analysis is esesntial to study at the
university level. If a university is to function
properly its lecturers must provide a provocative approach to the subject matter and
encourage a more critical approach on the
part of the students.

Frosh" Queen
Once again we come to the time of trie
year for our annual disagreement with Lambda Chi Alpha. Sponsors of the Frosh Queen
contest, Lamba Chi has done a very efficient
job in selecting, entertaining and amusing
the freshette candidates.
Saturday night some lucky and, we hope,
luscious, girl will be proclaimed Frosh Queen
for 1953. Which is all right with us, except
that she won't be a Frosh Queen; she'll be a
Lambda Chi Queen.
A genuine 24-cart Frosh Queen should be
chosen by Mike Nuttal's very dependable
Frosh Orientation Commitee, by an impartial
panel of judges or by the frosh themselves.
By all means let's have this flourishing
flower of froshdom, but let's make sure she
is a Frosh Queen, not a Lambda Chi Queen.
ScepticuA
A combination of the most
interesting activities UBC can
offer—and with a Slavic tang
to it all—is the program of the
reorganized Slavonic Circle—
now starting up after three
years' lapse.
Strenuous round of parties,
lectures, dances, linguaphone
lessons, sing-songs and bull sessions kept 75 slav enthusiasts
laughing and learning in the
old Circle's heyday, and nostalgia for these "Golden Days"
has prompted Miss I. Carlsen,
Slavonics lecturer and former
club president, to attempt a reorganization.
Encouraging membership
from all faculties but finding
the nucleus of he* club in Slavonic students, lively Miss
Carlsen has already achieved a
membership of 30.
More members, male and female from any faculty or
school,, are now being sought
in a colorful campaign which
has included costume dancing
on the library lawn, sound
trucks, parades and engineer-
baiting.
Led now by honors Slavonic
student Michael Peers, society
offers something for everyone
who has any curiosity regarding Slavic culture.
One of the main aims of the
club, acording to Miss Carlsen, is to help students attain a
happier adjustment to university through giving them a
chance to meet other students,
make friends, help in group
projects or just pass the time
away.
For this reason, frosh especially are invited to join.
But underneath this, the
Circle will give its members a
LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
The eight cent cup of coffee has gone the
way of the nickel coffee. It will be remembered
fondly until the advent of the twelve or thirteen cent cup.
I mu:;r admit, however, that the new price
will make no difference in my financial standing, even though I consume innumerable cups
of the ghastly brew per day. Seems I have
penny size holes in all the pants I own, and,
if one day pennies should begin to sprout,
mine will follow the closely grown path of my
daily  perambulations.
That is perhaps the reason why the latest
price hike went through without a murmur of
protest. I am quite sure that when (not if)
the BCE decides lo "even up" its transit fares
from 111 to 15 cents in order "to facilitate
smoother and faster service" past the glass bellied bandits on its busses, the furor will fall
far short of the row that followed the demise
of the ten cent fare.
Vancouver dailies have not had the j'uts
yet. to raise Iheir prices from a nictel. They
li.nil themselves to wistful little items reporting
the new seven or ten cent price of some paper
in Kulama/oo or San Francisco. But once thoy
.t'.et   r;oinn   on   the   sevent   cent   paper,   it.   won't
take them too long to switch to ten cents.

Noticed that the Housing Administration
has taken further steps in giving Fort Camp's
huts a semblance of permanency. Wooden steps
have been replaced by concrete stairs, showers
have been tiled and washroom floors have
been relaid.
As a present resident of Fort I appreciate
these new amenities, but I cannot help wondering what has been done, or, to be more precise,
what is going to be done about more permanent
accommodation for men,
Last year all plans of university expansion
were shefved in anticipation of more permanent
tenants in Victoria's government offices.
The new government seems to be about
as permanent as they come. Furthermore, the
Social Credit administration draws its strength
from rural ridings, and it should not be too
difficult to press home the point that, if this
university is to become a truly provincial institution, more adequate provisions wijl have
to be made to accommodate students from the
interior and northern points.
"Econmy with Efficiency" could in this
case be amended to read "Economy with Foresight."
Editor, The Ubyssey
Dear Sir: '
Last Tuesday, the 22nd September, during the lunch .period
my attention was drawn to the
"Caf" by a whole series of horrible screams. Being of a
slighly sadistic inclinaton I hurried to the source of the outcry
in he hope that some unfortunate young plump ireshman was
being lashed by brutal Engineers armed with leather bootlaces.
Imagine my surprise when I
discovered that the sound originated in the maws of a vast
gathering of beautiful females.
To say the least it was disconcerting! Apparently the bedlam was a pseudo-religious demonstration known as "rushing."
In the Far East I have seen
many religious celebrations but
none were as trying to my equilibrium as this one, and I earnestly suggest that the sororities
consider adopting a demonstration more pleasing to the observer and more in keeping with
the mature outlook developed
in a university.
Thus I propose that in the
future, when such demonstrations arc felt necessary, the
young ladies involved should
emulate the Doukhobors and
strip with, naturally, as much
decorum and finesse as possible.
The objective of the demonstration would be attained in that a
great deal of attention would be
aroused. In addition, elderly
Artsmen like myself could wander around the "Caf" in pleasant meditation, undisturbed by
unearthly  squeals!
Very   humbly  yours,
K. POOLE, 4A.

California Appeals To Kathy
'Most fabulous time I've ever, Oakland and Berkeley
had in my life," says pretty
Kathy Johnson, UBC's contestant, Miss Football contest for
the title of Miss Football of
1953.
Kathy, with 10 other girls,
was a guest of the Berkeley,
California Junior Chamber of
Commerce for a whole week of
festivities.
The occasion was the eighth
annual Football Festival that
served as the official kickoff for
the national collegiate gridiron
season and also marked the
coming-out occasion for King
Football.
The presence of the King and
his Court of 10 lovely coeds
from colleges throughout the
United States and Canada
prompted a series of civic
events.
Tours of Hollywood studios,
interviews with stars, mostly
male, and sightseeing trips filled the first day of the wonderful
week.
The tight schedule for Tuesday took the girls to Oakland,
where they were welcomed by
city officials and then driven in
convertibles through downtown

Asked by the Chief Justice if
she knew what clan her tartan
skirt was, she replied she did
not know.
"For your identification that's
the Fraser clan," Fraser said,
"if you'd known you could have
been dismissed."
i Following £hia precedent,
Barbara Rickson announced as
her de/ence she was wearing
tartan of the Southerland clan.
DEADLY ENEMIES
Justice Fraser answered'"The
Southerlands have always been
deadly enemies of the Frasers—
give her the maximum."
Maximum sentence for freshettes was pinning the hemline
up to well above the knees.
Minimum sentence was pinning
the hemline up to well above the
knees.   Few were acquitted.
A conference with her lawyer
was demanded by Lynda Gates.
"I object to whatever happens,"
shouted Denis Creighton, prosecuting attorney. "I sustain
your objection—whatever happens," said the Justice.
Miss Gates attempted a defence against the charge of too
long a skirt based on the moral
principles of her "unremitting
father."
"Your  father  is  a  kill  joy,"
was the opinion of the court.
CLEAN BARNS
Hob Snowball, Dave Horton,
Mike Jeffery and George Fraser
were informed that "their only
sin was one of omission—they
shouldn't have come," and sent
to clean the Aggie barns.
Drenched himself while enforcing peace, Monty MacKay,
EUS vice-president, still retained his Wilsonian frame of mind,
"Just because the frosh want
to fool around is no reason for
us to be a bunch of clowns too,"
he said to The Ubyssey.
Wringing out his red sweater,
Monty stated, "There will be no
retaliation, this year or next."
"It's a bit better than last
year anyway," he said.
WUS Executive Floored
By Herds Of Women
Grossly under-prepared WUS executives were floored
Wednesday evening by the herds of women that turned out for
the Big-Little Sister banquet.
Expecting the usual number
of around 300, which, by the
way is about all the Caf can
hold, WUS members prepared
lo serve no more dinners than
a maximum of 400.

started with great gusto on the

Those who got only a spoonful

cigarettes.
The banquet duly over, everyone trooped over to the New
Cym where they seated themselves    as    comfortably as pos-

Orinda Willows, and went gratefully to bed.
At this point in her narration,
Kathy begins to get really enthusiastic. Pan American Airlines took the girls for a flight
in a Boeing Stratocruiser.
"It had two decks and a bar
and everything," bubbles Kathy.
Thursday, the fourth day of
the Festival, was filled with
swimming parties and barbecues at several swank estates
and country clubs. Photographers were let in to snap the girls
in their bathing suits.
Kickoff luncheon on Friday
preceded the annual "Parade
of Lights" through downtown
Berkeley. Each queen had her
own float in the mammoth parade that was watched by over
200,000  people.
A*. Greek Theatre Rally terminated the parade. According
to Kathy, "It was the most
thrilling experience I've ever
had."
17,000 students swarmed
around a huge bonfire on the
campus of the University of

popular  TV ling,   and   throwing  empty   beer

The California-Baylor game
on Saturday afternoon was
where the football entered the
picture.
All the queens were introduced to the crowd at half-time,
and were carefully measured by
King Football himself with an
over-size measuring tape.
Most impressive part of the
game, as far as Kathy was concerned, was the organized
cheering by the huge cheering
section.
Wind-up of the whole week
of festivities was the Coronation Ball at the Hotel Clare-

Mary Ann Wejsbrod, from San
Jose State College, was formally crowned at the ball.

Pomfret Worried     Aftermath Of Saturday's Game?
Over Cagers' legs
For Coming Season
DUNCAN  THRASHER
Hey footballers! Are you in
shape for Thunderbirds' first
practice October 14?
Thunderbird coach Jack Pomfret tells us that competition for
the squad will be the keenest in
years—at least according to the
number of boys enquiring about
practices for the various hoop
squads.
Pomfret wants it known that
those in good shape come practice time, will rate a better
chance because scrimmages are
starting promptly on October
14. So run those legs into shape
fellows.
NYHAUG. HUDSON TO PLAY
All last year's players with
the exception of Bob Hindmarch
will be turning out again this
year. Footballers Buz Hudson
and Earnie Nyhaug wil be out
after the football season to try
and win their positions back.
A sign that the calibre of High
school basketball throughout
B.C. is steadily improving is
shown by the number of out-of-
town ball players on the campus. There are also several
"imports from Alberta and
pofhts east who will be fighting
jfor positions on the three basketball squads.
Pomfret plans to emphasize
defence more than he did last
year in an effort to cut down the
scoring average against them.
As his offence will certainly be
as good as if not better than
laat year he figures to take the
close ones that he lost last sea-
ion.

Promises Lots Of Action
Tomorrow afternoon the Vancouver "Dream" football
game will take place when the rejuvenated Varsity Thunderbirds tangle with the Stukas-coached Vancouver Cubs for tho
highly unofficial city football crown, on the Point Grey cam
pus.
It is a mighty important game
for both clubs, as the downtown
Intermediates will lose a great
deal of prestige if the badly ma'
lgned Varsity gang take their
measure.
IMPORTANT REDXEY
ABSENT
The Cubs will play without
American star Bob Redkey, but
will still put a big, strong starting team on the field featuring
hard-running halfs, Pete Von
Harten, and Billy Stuart, while
Lome Cullen and Wendell Green
will fit in the quarter-back slot.
Line stalwarts like Gil Steer, ex-
Calgary Stampeder and Bob Sikorsky are also likely to give
the 'Birds a  hard  time.
Coach Don Coryell, however,
while not particularly pointing
for this contest, is determined to
put up a battle and relies heavily on his starting backfield of
Jack Hutchinson, Jim Boulding,
Bil Stuart and Gordy Flemons
to do a lot of damage both overland and through the air.
The varsity line is in top
shape   arid   although   weakened
CORRECTION
University Bus Fares
We regret that incorrect fares were stated in
our advertisement in The Ubyssey, September
15th issue. The following states the correct
student's fares:
Special Student's Fare with Certificate
On presentation of a University of British
Columbia Identification Card, .students may travel
within the University Endowment. Lands fare
zone with payment of a 10 for 40c Student's Ticket

£. C. ClecMc
by the loss of center, Ed
Sweeney, has still got a lot of
desire. Carl Saarinen, a converted tackle will probably start at
center.
CAMPUS BOOKIES SAY
EVEN ODDS
Varsity fans will also have a
chance to compare the Canadian
and American ball at this contest, as it will be played under
both codes, a half being devoted
to each. Spectator-wise at least
you will be able to judge which
is the more exciting brand.
On the basis of past performance, the Cubs look like a sure
thing but campus bookies have
the odds even and there is con
siderable talk anion.!; the beanie
and book set that our Varsity
boys could pick up all the marbles if they play hard.
