Mulling Over Minutes
After two AMS General Meetings, $200
down and not so many to go, UBC still finds
itself in the very same athletic mess these
meetings were supposed to cure.
Looking back over the minutes of the two
meetings we can see that the majority of
motions carried were simply matters of procedure, either tabling preceding motions,
limiting the debate, or challenging the procedural ruling of lhe chair.
Furthermore, the resolutions that were
approved by the student body are either
ineffectual and half-hearted or completely
irrelevant to the solution of UBC's athletic-
The only positive result of the two sessions
i.s the petition asking the Senate to refrain
from, imposing the freshmen ruling for first
teams on the grounds that students should be
considered sufficiently mature to schedule
their work without intervention by the administration.
Apart from this one resolution we are now
saddled with a useless motion calling for dual
control over UBC's athletic- director and a
watered down version of a scheme aimed to
investigate the possibilities of attempting to
bring about an eventual reformation of an
organization possibly built on lines similar to
the new extinct Western Intercollegiate Football Union.
Bulls In A China Shop
Freedom of speech is an important quality
in a democracy and is equally important in a
university. However, at times this freedom
is abused as in the case of the latest AMS
meeting called by a petition of 100 students.
When tho first special AMS meeting was
called, it was held on Friday because of a
gattte being held in connection with The
March of Dimes on Thursday. This gesture
at least demonstrated that students had some
respect for other individuals.
Yet when this meeting failed to reach any
conclusions students again flocked to sign
another petition, and consequently another
meeting wa.s scheduled . . . but this time no
attention wa.s paid events scheduled for that
The International House Committee and
International Students' Club had planned a
special musical program for this date a month
previously, yet on the spur of the moment
they were forced to cancel their plans for an
AMS meeting at which ;i quorum wa.s not
even realized.
As a result of ihis thoughtless action ol the
student body in general, and Students' Council specifically, the International Club lost
money, and furthermore all their efforts in
It's This Way
planning and  publicizing  the concert  were
dropped in the trash can without a qualm.
They lost the goodwill and respect of, the
four artists who had kindly offered their time
and talent to the university.
Not only were the well-made plans of a
group cancelled by a sudden whim of a handful of students but the AMS meeting itself
was a failure in that students were not even
interested enough to attend.
Although this AMS meeting shows that
students have freedom to express their ideas,
it nonetheless suggests that this freedom perhaps needs restriction until a time when students realize the full value of the weapon
in their hands.
A child is not given a knife to use until he
realizes the purpose of the knife, and we
naturally assume this is the proper way to
treat him for hi.s own benefit.
We do not suggest that students should be
treated like children (although at times that
too is questionable), btu we do suggest that
this incident serve as a lesson, and that in the
future, students should exercise better judgment, and council should be more careful in
making decisions.

Well, dear readers, you're out
of luck today. Here I hud a wonderful column all prepared on our
I ivorite topic — politics. Then 1
made the mistake of reading the
paper, and decided to write
something else. Just think what
you're missing.
I guess you rend the same item
Ihat I did; one could hardly miss
it, ".-hid Names in Vice JJlnckhook"
It went, or words to that effect.
You were probably an disappointed as I was that those names
were not published, especially as
It was intimated that they would
make interesting reading. "Many
prominent citizens" were included, with notes on their personal
However, the avid readers were
allowed to console themselves
witli the names and ages of the
women concerned, and with a
description of how the detectives
sided on the establishment for
some time before action was taken. Now the kicker; if they could
tell that much, why not go ou
with  the  rest?
Of course, the papers will tell
us that the list of names was not
read out in court. This brings us
hack to the judge und the police.
Why was ll not made public?
Possibly the police have no evidence, and do uot wish to publish
the naines without evidence. Are
they trying to get the evidence?
Ten to one they .ire not. And why
Here we have alternative reasons. The women Involved hn('e
been charged and their names
made public, thus ruining their
chum-ps ot other employment,
The men? It seems that we still
have with us a double standard
Men and women are not equal Im-
fore the law. In this matter it
least. The men have committed
no crime, but the women have.
The other reasons? Some
"prominent citizens" are apparently involved, and they must not
be embarrassed. Our society depends on hypocrisy to stick its
fragments together ;it would be
the ruin of a "prominent person"
If people were to find out that he
is just us human as anybody else,
witli "personal Idiosyncrasies"
like other humans. So we have
another double standard; one
ruling for ordinary mortals, and
another  for "prominent  citizens."
The whole matter is sordid, not
only insofar is the establishment
in question is concerned, but also
In its handling by the police, lhe
court, the newspapers, and the
general public. We have here a
plain case of "ji^tice" being id
ministered in favor of one sow
with implications that it is also
being administered iu favor of 1

It. lu this case, the traditional attitude Is to condemn the women;
tiie old religious idea of the impurity and Innate sin of women,
going back to the legend of the
teinpl.11l.lon of Kve, still dominates much social thinking, and
until we can get rid of that we
will still have a cross-eyed view
of morals.

During the past month or so a tendency to
adopt the sewage-sensation technique of big-
circulation tabloids has become apparent in
the local press.
Crime is an unfortunate interaction of social
conditions and human nature. It is not, primarily, a circulation booster. But no-one
wants to be left behind in the rat-race, so
here goes:
Charming .demure little Mrs. J.X. didn't
want to tell the story. She said it was none
.oi our business and to get the — out. But
we offered her ten bucks and she decided
society had a right to know. Snivelling softly,
she assured us that she was now out of danger,
that she was under the best of medical care,
and that her family had been most understanding.
Mrs. J.X. had been returning on foot from
a lovely party given in her honour by a
friend, Minnie R. at her home at Cordova
and Keefer. "It was my 14th birthday, and
I was very gay. Albert, that's my husband,
had been shooting a few with the boys at the
Pender Pool Parlour, so I decided to walk up
there to get him," she confided.
The night wa.s dark and damp "but the
waterfront was beautiful, so very restful and
quiet," she murmured. "I walked along Water
Street for about five blocks, the wind blowing
through my hair, the mud squishing between
my toes. As I walked past the old deserted
shacks and meat-packing plants, the invigorating smell of decayed meat and sterno filled
my nostrils." She paused. "Do you like the
smell of stale meat and sterno?" she asked.

UBC Play Today At Noon
Tourney Weekend Event
Last night, after a fine meal (mock ducfk and dressing),
I was just relaxing on the chesterfield when, having finished
the comics, I turned to the sports page of the 	
(it's a bad policy to mention the opposition) when a headline
STYLE". If the headline struck my eye, the story struck me
In it I found that the University, through its delegates
Mr. Penn and Mr. Osborne, had approved an Evergreen Conference football schedule for next season without any consultation with the MAC or the students. Also Dick Penn had stated
that we could not get out of the Conference without at least a
year's notice of our intention. This was not only news to me
but also a ray of light to MAD prexy Gerry Main and secretary
Pete Lustzig.
These people, who should be in the know as to the athletic
contracts entered into by the MAD, didn't have a clue as to
this little bombsr ell.
This raises a few pertinent questions in the mind of this
observer. First, where was the student representative who
was to go to this conference meeting? Why didn't he go along
with the two members of the administration to express the
voice of the students (who after all are playing and paying for
the program)?
Second, how can the administration commit us to this
ocnference whetv the students at the second general meeting
definitely voted to investigate the possibility of entering the
WIFU before they decide whether or not to stay in the
Evergreen? After all there is still a motion before the student
body to withdraw from the conference, especially in football.
This move looks to me to be a smart political play on the
part of the administration to keep us in the Evergreen whether
we warit to stay or not.
Here are the facts as presented to me yesterday by Dick
Penn.:    -
The football schedule is just tentative, says Dick, and must
be formally approved within 30 days after the meeting. This
approval is implied if we do not send a formal letter of protest
to the Conference officials before that time is up.
However, if this time passes without a beef, then we ate
bound to honor the guarantees made by our representatives to
the various schools involved in the league. If this total is similai
to the past-fall's, then we will be forced to forfeit about $3,000
dollars if we want to withdraw.
In that, the administration has, a lovely big club with which
to hit us where it hurts the student most ... in the pocket book
It means that we couldn't pull out of the Evergreen Conference without losing $3,000. If we wanted to, we would have to
raise the student fees in order to enter the WIFU, an expensive
proposition we admit, and to pay the bad debt incurred by
these guarantees.
You all know how that would go over—like a lead balloon.
So, fellow fans, it looks like all this athletic controversy
has wrought no effect on the stony countenance of the administration. They still dictate the leagues we play in and how much
we pay to play. This latest dictum makes all of you who voted
for student control of the athletic policies look like pitiful,
immature fools.
The administration has done nothing concrete about playing
Canadian ball—and they were asked to by the football team
itself, and the students.
They haven't even given us a voice in the conference
meeting—as we demanded.
They have completely ignored the opinion of the students
who pay for the program and for their jobs and have gone on
just as before.
Just how farcical can student control be. Let's face the
facts, the athletic set-up is a dictatorship and our influence and
wishes total a big. fat, juicy goose-egg.
"Tuum est", freely translated, means it all depends on you.
What university has that motto?
It certainly isn't this one!
BRIEFS AND BEEFS—As this will probably be my last
appearance on this page before Christinas, good luck to all in
the exams, especially to all those Thunderbird football players
who are way behind—also regards to the coaches of all the
clubs, may you find a dozen 220 lb. natural athletes who have
Rhodes Scholar rating to patch the holes left on your teams
by the forthcoming quizzes—to the Senate I wish unclouded
minds to study the Freshman ruling, and to my instructors a
compassionate heart when they come across the number
3841511 on the answer papers—oh ye, gang, stay sober and
