Faculties   Plan   Protests
Law students will turn out
j In force at today's AMS gen-
I eral meeting to move that $100
honorariums   be   extended   to
executive members of 37 clubs
and undergraduate societies.
If passed, the motion would
bring the total honorariums
paid students over $25,000.
. Stu Klein, president of the
Law Undergraduate Society,
says law students will "turn
out in force." to move the
amendment to council's honorarium amendment.
"Honorariums are a great
idea," says Klein, 'but other
• executive members should get
them too. We don't want to kill
honorariums—we want to extend them."
Klein adds: "If any hardworking executives, not included in our motion, feel they
deserve honorariums, then
they should get them, too."
The motion—to be voted on
during the meeting—was duly
drawn up. and filed with AMS
secretary Helen MacLean.
It reads:
Moved Rafe Mair, Law 3;
seconded Jim Craig, "That an
honorarium of $100 (one hundred . dollars) be awarded to
the president and each of the
executive of the following organizations."
The motion lists 37 groups
Including Radsoc, S.C.M., political clubs, and the non-existent Arts Undergraduate Society.
It concludes:
"And to any other campus
executives who feel that their
services are not adequately rewarded."
Council Admits Slip
On Meeting Date
Student's Council confessed to hair-splitting constitutional experts that Fall
General Meeting has been
called outside the first-15-
days-of-the-term limit as stipulated in the AMS Constiu-
Confliction of the Blood
Drive and the absence of
AMS President Ron Bray at
the WUS and NFCUS convention during the last ten
days prevented scheduling
of the meeting •artier. Law
, student Bray termed it a
technical infraction that
could  be ignored.
EUS  Out  To  Keep
Fall   AMS   Meeting
Strong disapproval of several of the proposals and con*
stitutional revisions to be brought up at today's fall general
meeting was voiced by members of the Engineering Under*
graduate Society at a special general meeting called by president Ralph Sultan. ♦

Relations Officer, vainly explains Council's position to the

Plans were made by the redshirts to go en masse to today's
meeting and attempt to kill
motions which Sultan termed
"detrimental to engineers."
Regarding Student Council's
proposal to eliminate the fall
general' meeting Sultan said,
"They (the Student's Council)
want to hold all the strings.
They would like to slide issues
through without referring them
to the student body."
Amid murmurs of disapproval, AMS public relations officer Gordon Armstrong, a second year engineering student,
told the meeting of Students
Council's alternate plan to discuss with a representative of
each organization concerned
their particular financial provisions.
EUS treasurer Bob Smith
called this proposition a mere
formality, saying that it was
his experience that Student
Council was a closed group and
paid little attention to "representatives."
Smith also expressed his approval  of  this  year's  budget,
but he warned that succeeding

the honorarium issue expected
to be the most controversial
point on the heavy agenda.
Brock Extension Committee,
under Co-ordinator Don McCallum,  suggests a  north  and
south wing to the present

University officials have set
aside land behind the Brock

off the two proposed wings.
Cafeteria would be paid for
by the Administration.
Student Council Monday night set up a committee to
review NFCUS and report on its merits within the next
two weeks.
, An earlier motion to withdraw from NFCUS was defeated by a vote of five to four. Council felt that this indicated the need for some immediate action on the question.
Suggestions for improvement included letters to other
universities, a campaign through Canadian University

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
This concerns the "magi's"
interpretation of forthcoming
rain. What connection is there
between this naked feminine
form and rainy weather? It
would be silly to go out in such
lack of array if rain was the
weatherman's forecast. The
accompanying drawing is my
euggested change to the "ma*
gi's" monstrosity.
Yours truly,
The Sophomore in the
Credit   Where,.. 2St
From the student point of view the happiest result so far,
of last year's large capital grant by the Provincial Government
to the University is the announcement last week that construction will begin almost immediately on four new dormitories.
In tiie first instance credit for the dormitories, and all other
new buildings now being blueprinted for the campus, must go
in the Social Credit Government. It was the Socreds who
finally realized, at least in tangible way, tiie importance of
UDC to this provinoe. Their generous grant of 10 miilon dollars
had long been asked for but was unfortunately never granted
tsntil Social Credit came into power.
Naturally President MacKenzie, the Board of Governors
and the Senate deserve our thanks for their untiring and continuing efforts in securing benefits for UBC from the Pro-
vnicial Government.
But in the matter of student residences and accommodation a special word of thanks and praise must go to Dr. Gordon
Shrum, chairman of the Housing Committee.
In this era of Fort and Acadia Camp shacks running the
housing on this campus is at best a thankless and tiring job.
that it has been as good as it has, if it can be termed good, is
largely due to the efforts of Dr. Shrum.
The novel plan to build four new dormitories with a large
central recreation hall and dining room at the-exceptionally
low price of $2500 to $3000 per student is the result of a tour
of Canadian and American campi by Dr. Shrum to see at first
hand the latest in dormitory construction.
The best plan at the least cost per student was found at
Harvard and as a result UBC's new dorms will follow the Harvard plan—thanks to Dr. Shrum.
Rim of Hell
Once again sex rears its
ugly head socially. That great
Stork Club institution known
as table-hopping has been
grafted onto UBC cafeteria
.living for another campus season. Of course sex's ugly head
does not rear at either the
; Stork Club or at UBC in any
crude uncouth manner. But
all we open minded sorority
sisters, fraternity chaps, Victoria colonials and Latin American eKiles must admit that
the best laid plans are plotted
over a cup of investigated
Caf coffee.
That swift cold glance, that
slightly hysterical laugh, that
handle-bar mustache, all these
things suggest the workings of
feverish minds. Then there

Let us be clear though that
the above motions, of post-mor
tem and strategic planning are
confined to the sophisticated
line followed by UBC males in
Amazons. Simplicity is the
reference to the social scene.
Extra-curricular activities fall
into two broad categories—the
delights of sex and the delights
of liquor. (This discussion naturally omits those who knit
Afghans, purr over the breeding habits of the Tibetan yak
or hang up signs over their
beds beginning "Rolling stones
.  . .").
Of course the end to which
these means are directed are
relatively simple also. Some
are searching for the Only Man
in their Lives (this group is almost totally made up of girls),
some are looking for husbands,
some are looking for relief
after a hard week in the Pub
Office and the rest just don't
have anything better to do at
the time.
Then comes the big night/
nights/days and nights. Reluctant parents, busy liquor store
clerks and hostesses who insist
they are holding clsoed parties
are quickly dispensed with in
a series of familiar actions.

Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
May I violently protest the
labelling of your October ISth
editorial on Mr. W. A. C. Bennett's views on the outcome of
she Dominion-Provincial Conference as "WACKY BEN-
Generally, the editors and
staff of this paper seem to do
a fairly capable job of report-
tog and commenting' with a
minimum of poor taste and immaturity, considering the pressure under which they must
operate in co-ordinating studies
and other activities with an
ever present deadline.
However, may I suggest that
when their brains reach a state
of befuddlement in which they
no longer function adequately
that they relinquish their duties until they recover sufficiently to exercise* at least
partial control over them.
Surely an editorial, in all
its aspects including caption,
calls for some degree of wit,
Intelligence and good tatste.
It is the one spot in a paper
where lack of these three
qualities appears to me inexcusable. Your headline writer's   intelligence,   through   fa-

milk bottles and wash basins,
then downed with a rapidity
that would amaze Captain Mc-
Connell, USAF (popularized
by that lean actor Alan Ladd
in a forthcoming film that will
tug at the heartstrings of all
jet pilots' wives). Following
this and similar elbow straining actions the scene becomes
as cosy as a barn dance in Pin-
cher Creek.
Swiftly both members of
this alliance of mutual suspicion (see Russo-German Alliance, August 1939) size up the
party, its future, and the possibility of having a good time
that is satisfactory to all concerned. In the interests of
keeping man's personal rights
inviolate (a subject which always draws the maximum of
interest on Spanish Banks any
Saturday night), this expose of

a personal taste testing survey
of various brews, had obviously degenerated to an elementary school level of humour
and appropriateness. The editorial itself, though serious in
tone, simply through the inane
coupling of it with "WACKY

lost all power to persuade or
to command respect.
Mr. Beck has stated that the
functions of the paper are to
persuade or to command respect.
Mr. Beck has stated that the
functions of the paper are to

I heap we are going to get a
new bookstore to replace the

I am dubious. Morons are

other words, without a new

a new bookstore is an answer
to our long suffering.
This new staff would not

On the whole this social pattern is fairly acceptable. That
celebrated campus party, the
All-Night Party (which DOES
meet in small clandestine
groups in certain downtown
back-rooms but DOES NOT
have only one or two members)
would like to firmly advocate
through this column the banning of all formal dances,
Greek exchanges which end
before breakfast and cocktail
parties at which you are not
permitted to pour your own.
Which brings to the diabolic
attention of your hellish bad
reporter the fact that the
earlier -mentioned Civil Liberties Union has a competitor on
campus. This group, known as
the Personal Liberties Union,
is planning to send a group of
male stalwarts to the next
meeting of the West Point

are discriminated against. And,
by Heaven, if they are rejected

Saskatoon—(CUP) — Newspapers of western universities,
including The Ubyssey, may
have a better chance to win
the title of Canada's leading
college newspaper in the annual
competition for the Southam
Trophy this Christmas.
A proposal by The Ubyssey
to include a western newspaperman a's one of the three judges
was endorsed by delegates at
the fourth annual Western Regional Canadian University
Press Conference in Saskatoon
last weekend.
Forty students from UBC,
Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba attended the two-day
conference to exchange ideas
and advice on the running of a
college newspaper. iJBC delegates were managing editor Rod
Smith, city editor Sandy Ross,
CUP editor Jean Whiteside and
reporter Margie McNeill.
A western exchange system
was proposed by editors of the

There will also be an exchange of feature material and
editorials throughout the year.

Ron £ray, AMS president, explained today why the
Issue of the BEG swimming pool is not being discussed at
the Fall General Meeting.
Last year, the Administration had available $100,000
to complete the swimming facilities and asked students,
through the General Meeting, if they wished to contribute
a similar amount to make construction possible.
Becaues the information and advice available indicated that the most economical way to complete.the swim*
ming facilities was to build a second smaller pool, this was
the proposal. At that time, however, the students voted not
to put their money into swimming pools.
This year, the Administration has not budgeted any
money for the pool, and the Student's Council feels that
the students, r&ther than complete the pool.on their own,
should allocate their funds to build to the Brock.

They finally did it, not a
great victory by football standards but to UBC it may be
the most important of all time.
This win over Western
could well be the turning
point in the fortunes of the
Thunderbirds. Two tilings
have hurt the Birds to date,
inexperience and lack of con-
• fidence. The former can be
overcome through playing,
but the latter is an intangible
which has no patent cure.
As Frank Gnup pointed out
last week, the trouble with the
'Birds in the Evergreen Conference was that they think
they can't beat those Americans and expect to come out
second best.
But against Canadians it has
been a different story. Holding
mighty University of Toronto
Blues' to a 5-3 win last year
and highly touted McGill to
scoreless craw this season show
that the Birds can hold their
own against any team.
There is not that much difference between UBC's top
opposition and the Evergreen
Conference teams. Yet in the
past the Birds have never played the gaive they were capable
Of in the Conference, seeming
to suffer trom an inferiority
Look at that game against
Central Washington last year.
A firedup band of Thunderbirds stormed all over the Wildcats and walked off the field
at the half with an 18-0 bulge.
What happened in the second
half had to be seen to be believed. The inept Central
squad, showing little improvement as the contest wore on,
scored 25 points and pocketed
a 25-18 win. In the second
half the Birds had literally rolled over and played dead for
the Wildcats. A team with any
confidence would never have
blown that game.
Frank Gnup has done a great
job of re-orientating the Birds
this season, Except for a shaky
seven minutes at Pacific Lutheran, the Gnupmen have not
appeared to lack confidence.
They have played dead for no-
one. The loss to Eastern can be
attributed to inexperience,
with the majority of the team
tasting mud and rain for the
first time.
Many, including myself, did
not belieye the Birds could in
one week come back to post a
win after the tough loss to
Eastern. It should have broken
their backs. For a few it appeared to. But we reckoned
without Frank Gnup and the
new Birds.
Any squad that can suffer
the loss of their ace quarterback, as the Birds did in Gordie Flemons, and have a wholesale changeover of personnel,
and then come back to play the
type of ball the Gnupmen are,
certainly has what it takes.
The strong Jayvee team has
attracted over thirty-five players and is as yet undefeated.
Frank Gnup is counting on
these boys to fill the gaps in
the ranks of his Thunderbirds
from year to year.
With this new interest, planning, and confidence, the UBC
Thunderbirds may have given
up their long term lease on the
cellar of tho Evergreen Conference.

adds, the rest of the campus is
unaware of this activity. Any
group consisting of 25 students

faculties, fraternities and other
clubs have entered the intramural competition with one or
more entries, to swell the total to over 50 different teams.
Two sports are underway
