General AMS Meeting

Time For Some Change
The Ubyssey believes that an intelligent plan to aid
deserving athletes financially is both necessary and desirable.
We believe that the twin goals of better football teams
and higher student morale can be reached without the sacrifice
of academic standards.
There is no law that says athletes must be nothing more
than a physical machine with the intelligence of a Neanderthal.
There have been many Ail-Americans who also made Phi
Beta Kappa.
Any scholarship plan, to succeed at UBC, must of necessity
be limited to making things easier for the local talent to attend
university. It is unlikely that at any time within the forseeable
future that UBC will be in a position to compete wth American
schools in the competition for recruits.
Elsewhere on this page there is a story which details the
number and types of athletes who have left these parts to seek
fame and education at American schools. It is our belief that
the cause of ,UBC athletics could well be served by keeping
these athletes here.
The first step in this direction is to reach each prospective
student personally, and explain to them the value of attending
an institution such as UBC that can offer so much academically.
Our faith in the intelligence of athletes is such that we be*
lieve that nine out of 10 would accept tuition here rather than
tuition, room, board, books and a clock winding job at a school
from which a degree means nothing.
Any scholarships given at UBC should require that an
athlete have the minimum academic requirements to enter. If
his marks warrant he should be given a better scholarship.
In the case of an athlete with a bare base average his
scholarship should be limited to tuition. Where marks are
second class the scholarship should entail books in addition to
fees. Any athlete who has a first class average could also be
given room and board.
These scholarships are only the first step, however. If
Bobby Williamson were here at UBC it wouldn't do the
Thunderbirds any good if he had labs at practice time.
The Ubyssey does not suggest that athletes be given
special privileges. But it does seem feasible that any person
who is willing to put in 15 hours a week for the honor of the
school should be given the opportunity to make up labs at
the end of the season.
Scholarships of the type mentioned should be awarded by
the university and listed in the Calendar. Paying off athletes
under the table might win games but it would result in the
loss of certain ideals.
Fundamentally, university sport is amateur sport depend-
^mli^m^Ma^  —— -
■■■ In British Columbia those interested have been continuously rebuffed In their efforts to aid university sport. But if
the university continues its present athletic program, the interested parties will find ways of aiding it.
If such dealings take the pattern they have in American
schools we can look forward to the day when we have winning
teams completely subsidized by off-campus groups, to the
detriment of the university generally.
Keeping sport in its true perspective is thc job of an enlightened administration.
The university should accept such aid as is offered with no
strings attached.
Otherwise it should ban intercollegiate athletics.
Scholarships for deserving athletes paid for by private
donations should be acceptable to the university.
A subsequent editorial will outline the plan for raising such

Two Years' Wait
Professor's Libel Suit
Befoie H. of Lords
Experience of University of British Columbia botany professor Vladimir Krajina may "drive" Britain into changing her
laws governing diplomatic immunity.
**      .       ......      T>..-  i-J     *l.:..     ..*..*,._  i. ...     _..
Canadian Press reported this state
ment made by Lord Chancellor Viscount Jowitt in a House of Lorda
debate Wednesday.
Professor Krajina filed libel charges
in London two years ago against
Tass, Russian news-agency. Suits
were unsuccessful because Tass proved
its immunity as a state organ.
Libel suits were based on printed
accusations made by the agency
against Professor Krajina, who was
described during i'he House of Lords
debate as a Czechoslovakian war hero.
In an interview with the Ubyssey
yesterday, Professor Krajina said that
his libel charges were based on an
article in a Tass journal stating that
he had betrayed English paratroopers
during Che war.
This article, "designed to spoil my
living conditions in England," was
completely false, he said. Professor
Krajma's capture by the Gestapo,
during which the Tass-tcrmed betrayal supposedly took place, did not
happen until two weeks after the
capture  of   the   paratroopers.
Articles published by Tass news
agency during tlie Communist Putsch
in   Czechoslovakia   stated   that   com
munist activities in that country were
backed by the USSR, Professor Krajina said.
"When Dr. Papanek, Czechoslovakian
j delegate   to   the   UN,   protested   the
Putsch,   ho   cited   these   articles   to
I prove  Russian  intervent'ion.
Russian     denial     of     interference
charges was based  on  the statement
j that Tass  was a private agency and
; did not represent USSR views, Professor Krajina  continued,
i    But when the Professor's libel suit
i appeared   before   the   British   courts,
jTass   produced   documents   and   witnesses   to  prove   that   it   was  a   part
of  the  Russian  embassy,  and  therefore diplomatically immune.
British court procedure was in accordance with "democratic justice,"
Professor Krajina .said. However, the
law  giving  immunity  to publications
! of foreign governments "is an old
law, apd does not conform to the
I "I hope that at least my actions will
lead to amendment of this law. and
that they will not be allowed to
publish, any lie this side of tlie Iron
Curtain,"   he   said.
Saturday is deadline for returning Totem graduating
proofs to Krass Studios, 569 Granville.
Grads who have not returned proofs by closing time
Saturday will have their pictures chosen arbitrarily, Totem
editors said today.
"Pictures must reach the engravers before mid-December," said editor-in-chief Jim Banham, "and it is therefore
essential that the proofs be returned immediately.
NFCUS Plan Debate
Final With Quebec
First Presentation of Macdonald-
Laurier Trophy to Winning Group
TORONTO, NOVEMBER 22 — (CUP) — First all-Canadian University debating competition is planned, Toronto Chairman of National Federation of Canadian University Students
has announced. *	
Debating finals will be held at University of Ottawa, Canada's only bilingual university. For the first time,
winners of the Villeneuve trophy, emblematic of Quebec debating supremacy, will be included in the finals.
Trophy presented will be called the
"Macdonald-Lauricr Trophy," in honor of two former Canadian prime
Continuing his report on national
NFCUS executive meeting, chairman
Tom Symons said that the executive
decided only ship travel will be practicable for most university students
travelling abroad next summer.
Executive had learned that there
might in future be reasonable tourist
rates lor air travel overseas. However,
plan could not be implemented until
after next summer.
Reporting on national executive's
discussion of the Quebec Seminar,
Symons stated that it would probably
be held in Montreal. Representatives
from individual NFCUS groups across
Canada would be selected on basis
of interviews, letters of recommendation and scholastic ability.
Together with Symon's report, University of Toronto committee heard
report of Owen Jones, head of subcommittee investigating possibilities
of student union on the campus.

USC Supports Ubyssey
USC said, "Wc support thc Ubyssey's
conviction that the way to induce
athletes to play on our team Is to
offer them us good a deal as they can
get en outside teams—not to use force.
"Thc Men's Athletic Directorate has
asked for permission to enforce two
things: that any student who plays
for an outside team must first apply
for permission from MAD to do so.
Upon failure, he may suffer a five
dollar fine and'or expulsion from thc
"Also that any student who plays
for an outside team in spite of
refused permission shall be fined five
dollars, and uf.on repeated offence,
shall suffer expulsion from the university."
"The MAD has said that it's intention is to insure every athlete's
applying for MAD permission. It has
been said lhat it does not intend to
use the regulation to force students to
play for UBC unwillingly."
"The purpose of this move, according to Hilary Wotherspoon, is to make
certain the MAD's knowledge of the
whereabouts of certain players, and
to encourage them to turn out on
teams next year,
1500 Students Must Attend
"The USC believes that if the only
purpose of MAD is, as they say, to
insure their knowing the whereabouts
of players, and to encourage them to
try out in the following year, a five
dollar fine is quite sufficient. Certainly, no student should be expelled for
failure to fill out an MAD form, or
for failure to write the MAD a letter."
"The USC also believes that if there
i.s any underlying purpose in the move
namely, to force students to play for
UBC teams who do not desire to play
on them, then any power which we
give to MAD to enforce such a regulation is unwisely and unjustly given,
and constitutes an infraction of the
rights of  every  student of  this  uni-
1 versity, especially in view of thc fact
that  in  order  to obtain  a   university
; education in British Columbia, it is
impossble to avoid becoming a member of AMS."
"USC   believes   that   every   violator
of the  AMS code  has a  right to  be
I tried   by   unbiased   persons."
Jim    Sutherland,    AMS    persident,
; told the Ubyssey that at least 1500
students must be present at the mcet-
: ing to arrive at any decision on tho
; motion put forth by MAD.

Institute Establishes
Sedgewick Memorial Fund
Memory of Dr. G. G. Sedgewick, late authority on Shake-
sperian literature, will be perpetuated by the setting up of a
memorial fund.
At a recent meeting. Vancouver In-^
stitute   elected   Mrs.   John   Creighton
chairman of Fund committee. Professor William Robbins was elected secretary, and Mr. Hairy Purely, treasurer.
Organization of the Memorial Fund
is outcome of an increasing demand
on the part of University students,
and  people  throughout the province.
According to Mrs. Creighton, funds
raised will be used ''for the sponsoring
of an outstanding lecfurer one year,
and  in following years  for  loans to
students in literature or music, for
purchasing paintings for a permanent
art snd music collection,"
Main object of the fund will be
"to perpetuate the interests that were
Dr.   Sedgewick's."
"Dr. Sedgewick was extremely interested in the Institute and did h
great deal to promote its development
as an important' public attraction.
"Students of UBC will be benefactors of the fund in a way that
Dr. Sedgewick would most certainly
have approved whole-heartedly."
By-Pass UBC
Financial Aid Draws Athletes South
(Ubyssey Sports Editor)
Athletic opportunities have been and
still are so slight for students at University of British Columbia that 'talented sportsmen have by-passed this
university in preference to others
where their talents may be rewarded.
Some small schools, which cannot I
offer near as much in the scholastic !
line as UBC. are draining off potcn- J
tial UBC athletic stars by offering |
much more than this university in tlie '
athletic line. j
Top-notch  sportsmen,   all   assets   to
Thunderbird teams if the players had
come to UE'C, have gone to some bigger schools like University of Washington, U of Portland and others, not \
because they can get some course of- j
fered    at   UBC.    but    because    they
have been offered financial assistance
to play on some team.
St. Martin's acquired Blue ■Bomber
football stars Gordie Brown and Pete
Muir, two of the Bomber's best men
for offensive work. Brown, all-conference tackle last year, might, have
come to UEC, a big university in  hi.s
own town, if he had been offered financial aid to play'for this university
as he had been from St. Martin's. And
UBC could have used his 210 pound
frame in the line.
Muir, already having finished a
year at St. Martin's on a track scholarship, will go down there again, He
might very well have come to UBC
if the proper aid was given him. But
St. Martin's College, with a full 350
enrollment, was too good to pass up.
Examples of other football player.-:
who might have come to this university, but were enticed away by
pastures wiith more greenbucks, are
The Sweeny brothers, well-known
in local grid circles, went, to Portland University.
'Brian Mulhern, Vancouver College
graduate, played first string quarterback  for Portland  University.
Jim Mitchener took his football
skill   with   him  to   McGill   University.
Ed Ryan. Joe Fairleigh and Mart
Clark, a few years ago, went down to
St. Mary's to play football. Ryan
was  All-American   mention  one of his
years. Fairleigh and Clark are back
in Vancouver, set up in business, but
•they didn't get their education here.
Eastern grid stars Pete Thodos and
Cod Giles, Doth of whom might have
come to UBC if they were offered
inducements, left school altogether to
play  professional   football.
Scott Fraser, three-sport man, starring in football, basketball and track,
was another local boy who decided

UBC Comes Into Its Own
. Undergraduate Societies Committee, once
the juke of the campus, has at last come
into its own.
Its functions have always been only
vaguely defined with the result that it was
all too easy for it to clo nothing at all.
But the past three months have witnessed
o remarkable transformation in the spirit
of the group. It has taken an active interest
in a number of issues—the bookstore problem, the dispute over the effectiveness of the
Ubyssfey, and now the question of athletes—
and it has handled them all quietly and efficiently.
The question of athletes playing on outside teams is an important and vital one. It
is a- question which might never have been
placed before the student body as a whole
were it not for the insistence of USC that
lhe principles involved were of such magnitude that only a special general AMS meeting
could settle the matter to the satisfaction of
Chairman Bill Haggart deserves considerable credit for rescuing USC from lhe
doldrums. USC is one of the few sounding
boards on the campus to wnich students
dissatisfied with the action of council can
This is a necessary and vital function, and
one which students should see is performed
adequately. Any sound government must
have a system of checks and balances.
But USC can only make recommendations—students must see to it that they are
informed of USC's recommendations, and
that the recommendations are made use of.

Sun, stands a.s an example of a free press.
Like any other newspaper it has a policy,
and like any other newspaper it believes
that; policy i.s the best policy possible. But
unlike many other newspapers it does not
believe that its policy is the only one which

So firmly does it believe that the public

We Look For Birdseed, But Get
The Bird In Dept Store Hunt
Shoe stores sell shoes, and hardware
stores sell hardware. But it's not right to assume department stores sell departments. In
fact I'm not so sure they sell anything at all.
■I spent a day in a Vancouver department store recently, looking for a package of
"Pardon me," I said to the man hiding
behind the carnation, '"but can you tell me
where I can find some birdseed?''
His lips parted in a huge smile that made
him look like Visitor's Day in a dental lab.
"Certainly, Sir. Take the escalator to the
second floor and turn to your left."
I reached the second floor and took a
left turn. Gradually, I became aware of a
slow, sinking sensation. The coward behind
the carnation still had his teeth out on display.
"Too sharp a turn," 1 chuckled. "I'll try
it again."
This time when I got. to the second floor,
1 managed lo read an eight-fool sign in the
distance that announced the presence of the
Pet Deparlmenl. The sign was obviously
intended only for the convenience of shoppers who happened to stroll in wearing industrial   respiralors.
"Ya wanna pel, Mister?" asked a .girl
who lolled against  the cash register.
"Heavens, im! here," I .said. "I'm just
looking  for some  birdseed."
She gazed mil lhe window, her gum
snapping delightfully .synehrnni/.ed wilh the
ping ping of the elevalnr.-,. "Birdseed?" she
repeated. "We ain't eot no birdseed here,
Mister, Anyway, I Ihoughl birds came
from ..." i
Somehow, I just couldn'l wail to hear her
theories ol  evolution.
"What kind ef birds are you hunting,
Sir?" asked the Brie.hl Young Lad behind
the sports department eounl'T.
"I'm not luuiiing bar1,,' I explained.
"You see, I have a canarv. and I'm looking
for ..."
"Oh, liter gun ain'i u(> rood for canaries, Sir."
"1   know."   I   said.   "I   dnn'l   want   a   gun.
I want ..."
"Exactly, Sir," he said, nodding knowingly. You want to go to the toy department
and get an air rifle. Why, an air rifle can
kill a canary just as ... "
"No, no," I revolted. "I'm not trying to
kill him. He's hungry, and I'm looking lor . . ."
"Well, this ain't no lunch counter. Anyway,  what you  want for him is some  bircl-
i a
"Maybe you're right," I said. Not more
than twice did I look over at that rack of
rifles before I walked away.
The only other passenger on the elevator
appeared to be a salesgirl. She was talking
to the operator when I got on.
"Pardon me," I said to the operator,
"but can you lell me where to find birdseed?"
"Why not, look in a birdcage, silly!" And
her elbow jammed back into the sales girl's
"Didja hear lhat, Ethel? Thi.s guy say.-:
'Can you tell me where to find birdseed,' and
I  says,  'Why don't you  .  .  .  ' "
1 got oil al. tbe next floor. It happened
to be Ihe grocery department.
"Pardon me," I said to the man in the
smock, "can you tell me what you've got
in the way of birdseed?"
"Cellophant , Buster, Cellophane," and
lit1 leaned back, hi.s bands on his ribs, his
whole body shaking soundlessly. "Why don't,
you look lor yourself," he said when the
spasm was over. "This place is self serve,
you know. My job i.s to keep the rack supplied, with jelly powders. That's all. Just
jelly powders."
1 don't know whal snapped in my brain.
Bul a moment later, I found myself filing
wilh tin1 others, past the wrapping counter,
up lo thi1 cash  register,
"This all you want?" she asked. "Just
jells'   powders?"
"Yes," I said dazedly. "For my canary,
you  know."
"Funny," she said, "I got one too, but
lie won't eal nothing bul birdseed. I guess
it   lakes  all   kinds."
"Guess so," I said. "Mine's just wild

Smoking Rejected
By Co-ed Majoiity
Resolved thai campus smoking by women is detrimental
to the University's public relations.
A   chaos   of  opinions   flooded   Arts
100 Wednesday when a motion introduced by Pat Newlancls passod by a
large majority,
The motion was "that no smoking by
women be allowed on the campus or
at any function sponsored by tho
The first speaker for the affirmative
was Elaine College who said "This is
not a personal matter. We have to
consider other peoples' views." She
appealed to the women student's to
help retain the high opinions and
standards which the public holds of the
University students.
Mairi Dingwall supported the negative side by slating that if the motion
was defeated it would not interfere
with the stadium campaign. At the
Universities of Alberta and Saskatchewan, women students smoke openly.
Miss Dingwall felt that it was more
injurious to have surreptitious smoking than to accept the rights of
women on the campus. She did not
think that Freshettes would be foolish
enough to take up smoking if they
had not done so before.
Molly Jordan was of the opinion
that certain places should be provided
for smoking, but that above all
women should not smoke in the
Cafeteria. A standing vote was taken
showing the motion passed by a large
They talked if in caf, and they talked
it in class,
They spoke of it morning and night.
They  discussed   it  with  fervor,  they
knew it would pass.
Co-eds would stand up for their right.
They   considered   in   couples.   They
argued  in  threes;
Did they fear public wrath to provoke?
Why this difference of rights twixt the
hes and the shes?
Twas but justice that women should
When  at' length   the  time came  and
they gathered to make
Thc momentous decision at last,
It    was   mildly   suggested,   "There'6
too much at stake,
Certain people are branding us "fast,"
Were there who for their convictions
would stand
And  l'orensicly  favor the fag?

could show they had sand,
That   their   boasting   was   something

There were four; that is all, who had
courage enough
To prove they had minds of their own.
So in future it seems that this nicotine

Here's a problem in fashion arithmetic any coed can solve.

wear it with a matching jersey skirt

Chiefs Drive For
Millar Cup Finals
Ex-Britannia Tries Saturday
To Stop Students' Win Streak
• Millar Cup play gets under way this Saturday when UBC's
Chiefs take on the Ex-Britannia crew, at Connaught Park and
Braves play off with Vindex at the university.
Chiefs,   ending   up   the   season   in«
number one spot in the league, will
have the best chance of the two university   te&ms   to   come  out   with   a
win to advance to the semi finals.
Losing only one game all season,
that one to the Meralomas in the first
game of the year, Chiefs ran over
the other league members including
the much-vaunted Rowing Club fifteen to win the leadership of the
Supplying much of the punch to the
team is Russ Latham, currently leading his mates in scoring with 21 points
to his credit.
Latham has kept the team going
since the start of the year, running
over the trys as well as kicking the
converts before Austin Taylor took
over this task.
Playing outside-three in the line.
Latham has had much to clo with setting up Keith Turnbull out in the
wing to score the trys.
Turnbull, amazingly fast, outruns
opposing players in his bid for the
goal line. And when he can't outrun
them, he ploughs through them.
