jjjlto^.tJhyBsey, in a recent editorial, attempted to
IntBly^hat tlje OCR has abandoned socialism.
Hl^(1 lj&e /been thought that the problem needs
^mjj>aplari,flent Ion. Therefore, the CCF club asked
j^|i|Jl|flpeaker to speak on the topic: "Is the CCF
Socialistic?'' .
,„jt^!)|pi|hipately, there were apparently no Ubyssey
writers at that meeting. For the further
plication of the Ubysaey, therefore, here are a
few facts. Draw your own conclusions as to the
6tSP and Socialism.
j^'pse expression or CCF principles is still to be
i^pd. In the Regina Manifesto. To quote, In part:
"We aim to replace tlm present capitalist system,
wltlj its Inherent Injustice and inhumanity, by a,
social, order from which the domination and exploitation of one class hy another will be eliminated .',,. ." "No CCF Government will rest content
lentil it has eradicated capitalism and put Into

w'ftffty will le^d to the establishment in Canada of
the Co-operative Commonwealth."
s ■ riNpW, while vve recognize that much of tho
Sqclaliziition of our economy depends upon federal
action, nevertheless, In the only province where
the CCF lias attained power, it lias already begun
a program of welfare measures, government and

^1 sorts of people have beon stop-
(nfrig me in the streets, in my
,ci^B«es, on my doorstep, 1'n the
bath-tub, etc.. to ask me the foi-
lowing question:
"Is It not true that. Canada,
striving as she is to build up
within itself a NRW NATION, is
woefully In need of a (dear, concise summation of its history in
a.ii economic, psychological and
.scientific I'fjitnc of reference
which would he readily available

Then they hurry away, swinging from tree lo tree and chattering excitedly.
The point, is well taken. In
fact. It's well taken to the city

It up /something I et, no doubt)
we may as well sit down and discuss It. Di stop scratching yourself and pull up a tree.
My contention is that. Canada

one. So here goes, in five queasy

Also, from the B.C. CCF program ln the last

Admitting that the CCF may In recent years have
been guilty of nnderempbaslzliig its basic objects,
this cannot be assumed to mean that the CCF has
deserted those principles.
I suggest that Ubyssey editorial writers study
literature available through the Socialist shelf in
the library, from CCF members, and at CCF meetings. I will personally be glad to go over the Regina
Manifesto, the Saskatchewan government record,
and the B.C. CCF program with anyone Interested,
to determine objectively whether or not the CCF

It depends of course, somewhat on a definition of

'Having sepit many athletic set- (

find that this is the most; unusual |

was the opinion of Canada's first I
Public Recreation Course Director
iu   a   recent   Interview.
Barry Lowes went on to say: "I!
(eel that II a committee of regponu- i
ible people. made up of both fao-l

a sound plan could be devised that
would overcome many iwurces of

Psychologists are supposed to
be able to analyze obsessions
and manias. If so I wonder if
they could explain to this observer why the jokers on the
Vancouver morning paper are
so obsesfcd with the idea of
"secret meetings" at UBC. It
is more than an obsession with
these boys; it's a hobby.
Several weeks tigu tliey printed
a story dealing with "the powerful
minority group" which was golwt
to revolutionise the athletic system at CBC and assaslnute Dick
Penn, Jelly Apderse^i and Bob ():;•
Now I see they breathlessly revealed in Tuesday morning's paper
that the Thunderbird football team
hud secretly met Monday night
and had voted to get out er the
Evergreen   Conference,  but. quick.
While this probably mude very
good reading- for the people In
Bongo-Bongo It bore lttle resemblance to the fucts.        }
First or all, as to "the "secret
meeting,'' Well I don't know what
certain sports writer's" definition
of secret Is, but this meeting happened to have been advertised on
this sports page for two issues
previous to the meeting. How
.secret can you got?  .
-Secondly the "secret meeting"
took place in the double .committee
room-of Brock Hall. That doesn't
convey the Idea or a darkly-lit
cellar with guards at Uie- -door to
me. Finally the "secret meeting"
was held at 12:30 during the Monday noon hour. Maybe the morning
paper \% in a different time zone
than UBC, but any way you look
at It (even through serisatlonally-
tinted glasses) it wasn't Monday
But evennlien they couldn't get
the facts straight. The Birds
didn't vote to itin hdme to mother
and get away from the big bad boys
in the Evergreen forest as quickly
as possible, ns the morning paper
reported. The team decided that
IF the Western Conference was
organized with all four western
provinces as members (only Sask.
has officially given their okay as
yet) and IF the flnanclul problems could be worked out they
would Uke to join. They also asked
that the other major sports be
Included in any such set-up.
Otherwise they said, if the Western Conference proved impractical,
we arc content to stay In the fiver-
