Abolishment Of

Candidates for second slate
c'ouncil posts presented their
platforms to an audience of 200
students in Physics 200 Monday
First speaker was Bill McAllister, candidate for Treasurer.
Seconded by John Duerk-on, McAllister said that lie "Would
like to see the Ubyssey a daily
next year—but 1 don't think it's
He said that lit thought the
paper should definitely be pub
lished at least four times a week.
He added that he was "in favour
of Raven and Pique."
McAllisher said he would like
to see the deficit in major sports
made up next year by a drive
to increase attendance at home-
"The Pep Club should brim?
more people out. a n d MAA
should establish a strong Public
Relations system. If necessary,
the budgets for these organizations could be increased to implement this drive."
McAlliser concluded by saying that he would continue
Thackray's system of alloting
funds to clubs and Undergrad
Societies on the basis of need,
rather   than   membership.
Second candidate for treasurer
was George Morfitt, seconded
by John  MacDonald.
MacDonald said he felt that
the Accident Benefit fund could
be exptnded next year to insure adequate coverage for campus groups. He cited as an example   the  skiers.
He advocated an increased
grant to Totem, and expansion oE
thc  Ubyssey.
"We can have four issues of
the Ubyssey a week nexl year
by one of three methods." Morfitt said.
"We can increase their bud-
gel, reduce the size of the paper,
or chance from a printed paper
to a lithographed one."
Morfitt added that e '. u b s

Thursday by Stan .Beck, chairman of a committee recently appointed to study UBC's athletic
set-up, was lo thc effec) that
all inter-collegiate competition
for UBC be abolished, the only
sports program being inlra-mur-
However, Athletic Director
Bus Phillips stated that no official committee report had yet
been released. He said the problem was under consideration
and no decision was likely to be
made  for at  least  three  weeks.
The committee pointed out
that students ere paying close
to S33.000 a year for the extramural program, yet attendance
at games is diminishing yearly.
Drop in gate receipts is blam
ed  on  lack  of advertising, lack
of hign-calibre athletes,  and  an
! inadequate budget.
!     Don Jabour. Students' Council
I President, said Monday that stu-
1 dents  should   not  have   to   pay
more.   "Grants   should   provide
the basic medium requirements—
grants from  the administration,
: not the students. Students have-
kicked through so much in other ways, yet  the administration
just  doesn't  seem to realize  thc
importance of sports," he said.
Jabour complained that the
employment office discriminates against athletes for part-time
tnd summer jobs. "We don't
want to offer athletic scholarships, but as it is, we can't even
offer a break on employment
for athletes," he said.
Phillips claimed the extra-mural program w:ould never be dropped entirely at UBC. Tt is absolutely necessary." he said, "We
must offer competition to those
1 who  are  athletically   talented."
"I do not agree with scholarships per se," he continued, "but
I do think that athletic ability
ought to be considered for many
"Tho  scholarship  p r o g r a m
ought to be broadened as to aid
I high-calibre   athletes."
j     Ben  Trevino,   president  elect
| of   the   Students'   Council,   was
also against athletic scholarships.
"I   have  a  lot   of  doubts   about
importing  football   players,"  he
£,aid   Monday.
"Right now IB per cent of our
student budget goes to the benefit of ten per emit of the .student 'uuly. On that note 1 suggest that Beck's charge is justified."

ASUS Official Claims
Topical But Untimely
The decision by Council Monday to add another mem-
ber to its ranks in the, form of an "executive member" is a
commendable one.
This move will give the Vice-President only the National
Federation of Canadian University Students and the World
University Service Committees to worry about, leaving him
free to be the president's "right hand man."
The executive member will be assigned the committee
jobs that have long harassed the Vice-President and prevented
his being of any aid to the chief.
The decision, however, i.s long overdue.
Two years ago candidates for Council posts suggested that
Council be expanded to keep pace with the growing enrollment. Last February candidates who are now councillors
promised a change. This Council has held office for one
complete year and yet this important decision has been made
at the end of its tenure.
If the decision is overdue, it is also importune.
The decision is to go to a general vote next week, the
very week when candidates for vice-president were to campaign. Several of these candidates decided to run for the
office because of its particular responsibilities. They have
planned and executed their campaign material with these in
mind. Are they now to scrap the money and time spent because of a change of plans mid-stream elections?
We criticize the timing of such a decision because it is
unfair to candidates who have already filed nomination
papers for positions on the third slate. It is equally unfair
to those who have already campaigned for other positions
on the first and second slates. It is undoubtedly probable
that several of those who ran for positions on other slates
would rather have provided competition for the new position with its particular responsibilities had they been forewarned.
We wholeheartedly congratulate Council for passing this
legislation and we hope that students vote in favor of the
referendum. However, we must, criticize the inoportune
timing of the decision.
Arts  Editorial
We in the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society believe that an undergraduate society's main funtion is that of
serving a.s an avenue for the communication of ideas and
feelings. The success or failure of an undergraduate society
must be judged in terms of this function.
Each society serves to communicate in three ways: it
must pass on the impressions of its members to the Student
Council, and take Council decisions back to the members.
It also aids communication between faculties by sponsoring
social events and cultural activities. Finally, it serves as a
focal point for the ideas emanating from within its own
faculty—a centre where these ideas can be developed until
they crystalize into valuable proposals. ,
ASUS has attempted to perform these three functions.
That we have not performed them as successfully as some
of the other societies is not an argument for the destruction
of ASUS, but for an increased effort to strengthen the Society. Arts Week will prove that theis effort can pay off.
Tom Wilson,
i ASUS President.
UBC Growth Brings Need
To Abolish Town Meeting'
ASUS Vice-President
The fact that the enrollment
at UBC will double in the next
ten years poses a serious question to those interested in student government; what form
will this government take as
we outgrow our present "town
meeting" stage?
Two alternatives are clear.
The first is the abolishment of
the general meetings and the
concentration of virtually absolute power ln the hands of
Students' Council, the only
possible check being the questionable referendum.
This system, which substitutes efficiency for democracy,
which substitutes the opinions
of the few for the ideas of the
many, is not acceptable to the
majority of the students.
The second is a system
which, though efficient and
workable, remains democratic;
it is a system which allows the
opinions of all to be heard, and
the wishes of the majority to
be carried out; a system flexible enough to be adapted to a
growing university's needs. It
is a system of representative
A variety of suggestions as
to the particular form this type
of government would take
have been advanced. They
range from a relatively simple
propose! to give the Undergraduate Societies Committee
more power than Students'
Council to a sweeping change
which would, among other
1. Replace the outmoded
general meetings by an assembly elected through the Under-'
graduate Societies.
2. Retain Students' Council,
as a strong executive and administrative body.
3. Retain USC as a check on
Council between the three or
four yearly meetings of the assembly.
4. Provide for increasing
the number of members of
Council as the population
At the present time, there ie
a need for all of these, and
other proposals to be discussed.
Each undergraduate society
along with the important
groups such as UCC, USC,
WAD, MAD and WUS should
attempt to familiarize its members with the problems involved, to search out new ideas,
and to make its voice heard in
the decisions to be reached.
Finally, Students' Council
should set up a committee
which will sift from this multitude of opinions those which
will provide for the best form
of government at UBC over the
next few -yeah.
'Pith'  On  Artsmen
Artsman Is Pidgeonholed
By Our Intrepid Columnist
As we were crossing Brock
Lounge the other day, an Ivy
Man, with all three buttons
done up, extricated himself
from languorous dalliance with
a somewhat adenoidal sorority
girl and accosted us.
"Look, old buddyroo," he
murmured, belabouring us systematically with his furled umbrella, "Why don't you write
about Artsmen for a change?"
"Good idea," I said, hooking
him as low as I could, "I think
I'll try it."   Then I fell down.
"Fine, fine," he chaffered,
using the pointed end now.
"We'll see you in the funny
papers." He gave the parts of
me that were still showing under the couch a couple more
smort jabs, and strolled off.
So, the Artsman.
He has been defined, by
Commercemen, as "psuedo-in-
tellectual." Now, we are not
quite sure what constitutes an
"intellectual," much less a
pseudo one. However, as Arts-
men are usually assertive, in
varying degrees of obnoxious-
ness, of opinions on matters not
immediately concerned with
the production and distribution
of necessities, we suppose that
they fit into one or the other
of the two categories.
The Artsmen that we know
read Time to be outraged, the
New Yorker to be outrageous.
They have read, or know the
names of, Sartre, Camus, Henry Miller, and just about anyone else who hasn't been serialized in a woman's magazine.
He can tell you, and will at
great length if given the opportunity and a couple of highballs, just what unique psychological aberration has led to
his present fascinating state;
what profound Freudian drive
lies behind his actions, usually
preferring to overlook the fact
that he is not especially profound, and everybody is especially Freudian.
However, what most distinguishes the Artsman, we think,
is that in a country where the
road to salvation is paved with
security and suburbs, he does
not know what he wants to do.
Of all the affectations he nurtures, this is the most jealously
We don't suggest for a moment that this is in itself reprehensible, or even strange;
what annoys us is the Arts-
man's insistence that he has a
monopoly on sensitivity, that
somehow, by enrolling in Sociology 200, rather than Phy-,
sics 200, he has become the
Outsider, the moralistic wanderer surrounded by intellectual
But enough of this; we are
Artsmen and stuck with it, so
I guess we'll knock off and
take a nap in the Green Room.
letters to the Editor
I.H.A. Infiltrated?
Editor, The Ubyssey:
As guests of the annual International House Ball last
Thursday night at the Commodore, we were surprised to see
that four full sized flags of the
Soviet Union were prominently displayed at the entrance to
the ballroom.
It is difficult to believe that
the leadership of International
Club has been taken over by a
group of students whose decency and beliefs are, to us, utterly disgusting.
Not only was the national
flag of Canada placed in an un-
conspicuous place beside these
giant sized Soviet flags, but
among the other pint sized national  flags   in   the   ballroom.
some countries were not represented at all.
Several of these nations are
well represented at UBC. The
point is not the absence of
these flags, but the rudeness of
the present leadership of the
International House in displaying so prominently the symbol
of slavery and torture. Less
important is the fact that the
Soviet Union is not represented officially on the campus.
While we realize that the
theme of the Ball was Slavonic
Slithers, it is apparent that
some individuals took advantage of the opportunity to further their own communist beliefs.
In the light of this action, we
suggest that the Students'
Council revise the distribution
of our money which is being
made to the International
House, as we are unwilling to
sacrifice a single dollar of our
fees for the rental of flags
glorifying the communist
It will be interesting to observe the reaction of the Rotary Club which has undertaken to sponsor a new home
for International House on the
Is it not time that International House took a long hard
look at the actions of some of
its members, and cleaned bouse
before its reputation, and that
of the University becomes tarnished by the actions of an unhappy minority?

AMS At A Glance
At last night's meeting, Students' Council:
• 1. Prepared to bleed when
given advance notice by USC
Chairman Robin Scott that his
organization was sponsoring a
blood drive starting next Monday.
• 2. Wee told that Women's Athletic Directorate was
obligated to pay the salaries
of intra-mural referees or go
without. Charlotte Warren,
W.A.D. chairman, stated this
after an enquiry had been made
to see whether salaries were
their responsibility.
• 3. Listened to two appeals from Treasurer Al Thackray: first, that all campus publications consult either him or
Harry Yuill before soliciting
advertising. Reason for this
wrs that he had received complaints from several businesses
who were called on by five
or six ad-men in the same week.
Second, that all organizations
planning to ask for funds from
outside organizations have their
action approved by the Treas-
uerer's office.
• 4. Laughed when Councillor Lynda Gates asked innocently in reference to the forth-
coming council-Ubyssey basketball game, "Do we have to
• 5. Received a report
which stated that the long-
awaited vending machines will
be revealed tomorrow in the
Armories in conjunction with
the Symphony performance.
Students who wish to will be
able lo purchase soup, soft
drinks, and sandwiches.   '
• 6. Bickered over a $5 fine
imposed on the National Reform Party for posting campaign posters on trees 'on the
boulevards. Other similar infractions of the rules were dismissed by President Don Jabour as "neither hither nor
• 7. Tentatively - approved
twlo NFCUS plans. They are
currently investigating the
feasability of sponsoring exchange week-ends with various
American universities. Also,
UFCUS is hoping to put over
a plan whereby NFCUS exchange scholars will be granted scholarships to cover room
and board in addition to fees
which are now being waived
by the University.
• 8. Grinned when UCC
chairman  Marc  Bell  reversed
a recent council trend and
lauded the Ubyssey for its
coverage of recent NFCUS affairs.
• 9. Sympathised with WUS
chairman Gordon Armstrong
when he explained that the
Hungarian students on campus
were posing such a problem
that his committee was considering hiring a full-time interpreter and liason man. One
possible choice could be student Charles Hamori who has
worked unstintingly in the ef
forts of his countrymen.
• 10. Watched Canadian-
American relations drop to s
new low ebb with a remark b>
Lynda Gates. In speaking of
the recent Evergreen conference she said, "They (Washington students) look to us for
guidance but we don't give, it
them because we laugh at
• 11. Applauded when
President Don Jabour in attempting to quiet the noisy
councillors said: 'This is without doubt the worst meeting
we've ever had ..." Then he
added ruefully, "But it's somewhat my fault,"
(Continued from Page 1)
The extra councillor issue
was re-opened by Treasurer Al
Thackray, who wondered, "What
will he do?" Exact distribution
of Council jobs if the new post
were instituted needed clarification, he said.
NFCUS and WUS Committee
Chairmen were cool to the prospect of a new Councillor sitting
on their Committees. "We're
afraid that if you set up a position like that without defining
his job, he would rightly feel
he was above the NFCUS and
WUSC Chairmen," WUSC Chair-
man Gordon Armstrong told
Under the Constitution, the
Vice-President acts as a liasion
between NFCUS, WUSC and
Council finally agreed to assign the proposed new member
most of the smaller Vice-Presidential tasks. These include;
Honorary Activities Awards
Chairman, Housing, College
Shop, Constitutional Revision,
Frosh Orientation and Discipline.
This   would  leave   the   Vice-
President free to act as a "Man
Friday" to the AMS President,
as well as to continue his NFCUS ♦
and WUSC liason duties.
The name, "Executive Member" was adopted as being more
consistent with the position's
specific duties.

Saturday night at the King Ed
Jayvees, hustling all the way,
played a good game—but not
good enough to beat defending
champion C-Fun and Bob Pickell.
An 8-8 tie in the first quarter was broken when the nervous Jayvees had trouble in moving the ball and C-Fun poured
in  14  unanswered points.
With the score 32-22 at half-
time, the invincible, consistent
Ken Winslade took over. Some
tremendous jump-shooting put
Jayvees within five points of the
champs Then Winslade popped
in seven points to personally
tie the game twice—54-54 and

Stan Beck, chairman of the
committee appointed by the
student council to investigate
the athletic set-up at UBC, -has
tome to the conclusion that
Varsity may be forced to drop
its entire extra-mural athletic
This may sound like a rather
drastic step, but, students, and
gentlemen of the administration, it is that bad.
Said Dean Matthews, chairman of the Men's Athletic Committee at a gathering Wednesday night: "I had been in favor
with the Men's Athletic Committee's policy of emphasizing
the major sports, in the hope
that  they would  pay for  the
operation of the other teams,
but, after our experience with
the Paraplegic Bowl (UBC lost
$300), I believe some other policy should be adopted.''
The Dean assured the athletes and coaches present that
this need not mean complete
de-emphasis of the spectator
sports. This is a good thing,
because, as one of the coaches
put it, "If we de-emphasize
much more we won't have anything left."
One solution proposed at the
meeting, which has been suggested in the past, was that an
additional $5 or $10 be tacked
on each student's fees, thereby
guaranteeing the M.A.C. a definite budget to work wrth.
If the MAC Mere guaranteed
this budget, what would they
do with the money? More advertizing?' More trips for the
teams? New uniforms? New
None of these would solve
UBC's basic problems.
• The administration is interested in a detached way
with the UBC sports program,
but they are apparently satisfied with the present situation
and it appears that they will
not take positive steps on their
own. If the students would
approve a $5 or $10 increase
in fees, the administration
would probably put the measure through.
• A large percentage of stu
dents are not interested in a
sports program.
So there it stands.
We believe students would
come to see winning teams. If
it was agreed to increase the
athletic budget by hitting the
students for an extra $5, it
would be the administration's
responsibility to see to it that
the extra money produced results. They could not do this
unless they altered their present policies in order to give
UBC athletes the same privileges and aid as athletes receive at the other Evergreen
Conference schools.
We are still waiting for this
and the second coming of
Students Beaten Before Game Begins
The defeatist attitude which
now exists among the students
on the campus is a pathetic
thing to see. The small percentage of students who do attend Varsity games expect to
see UBC lose.
At Saturday's basketball
game, the powerful Whitworth
Pirates, second place team in
the conference, had moved into a 22-11 lead at the end of
the first quarter.
Varsity students in attendance had settled back to watch
the slaughter.
However, the Hungarian Students from Sopron University
who arrived at the end of the
first   quarter  d i d   not   know
Whitworth College from a local high school. All they knew
was that they were for U.B.C ,
and U.B.C. should win.
They proceeded to yell,
stomp, end roer with dettght et
a Varsity score, groan when
Whitworth scored, boo the referees, hoot and whistle when
Whitworth was shooting foul
shots, and chant in thunderous unison "Haijra Oo. B.C.I
Hajra Oo B.C.I" it was ihe
greatest since Penticton's famous war cry "Go Vs Go."
Something of the spirit of
these students from a savagely
beaten country must have
reached the players on the
floor;  they  played  the  finest
basketball they were capable
U.B.C. students should be
ashamed that these people, who
knew next to nothing about
basketball, who do not even
attend the university, and who
know the feeling of a defeat
more  bitter  than  any   U.B.C.
student will ever experience,
had to show the 500 Varsity
students in attendance how to
support and inspire their team.
tT *t* V
Maybe whats wrong with
U.B.C. is that there's an un*
healthy percentage of intellectuals on the campus.

Bird  Cagers  Crush  Eastern;
Whitworth Not So Impressive
Mighty Whitworth Squeak Out
Win In Birds Final Home Game
After many false starts and painful setbacks the UBC Thunderbirds seem to have finally
found themselves. They proved this to some 1,700 supporters over the weekend when they
thrashed Eastern Washington 61-47 to vacate the Evergreen Conference cellar, and pushed
the powerful Whitworth Pirates all the way before dropping a 69-64 thriller.
Friday night, with the Fraternity cheering contest supplying
almost 700 rabid fans, the Birds
played the kind of game Jack
Pomfret has been trying to get
out of them all season.
UBC jumped into an early 8-0
lead which they stretched to
25-11 early in the second quarter. Then, when Eastern started
to close the gap, the Birds went
into a semi-stall against the Savages' zone defence. The strategy worked as UBC preserved a
33-22 lead at the half.
In the second half the Birds
played it cosy, letting Eastern
take most of the chances and
make most of the mistakes. It
paid off in an easy 61-47 win.
Saturday's game was even
more surprising. The Thunderbirds, whose starting five had
gone all the way Friday night,
met the second-place Whitworth
In the first quarter, the game
seemed to run true to form.
Whitworth grabbed an early
lead and, out-rebounding and
out-classing a very coolish UBC
five, opened up a 24-11 lead.
Then, with 300 Hungarian
Foresters from Sopron University lending highly vocal support, things 8 tar ted to happen.
Whitworth's shooting cooled off
and the Birds started to click.
With three minutes left in the
half they tied it up, and went off
the floor at half-time with the
score deadlocked 31-31.
In the third quarter, the Birds
continued to dominate play, but
some very poor shooting prevented them from opening up
more than a three-point lead.
Late in the quarter, Whitworth started hitting from the
outside against the UBC zone
defence. By midway in the last
., quarter the Pirates had an eight-
point margin.
Still the dog-tired Thunderbirds fought back to within
three points en two occasions.
The Pirates, however, refused to
wilt unde'1 pressure and held on
to preserve a 69-64 win.
Ed Wilde and Lyall Levy were
the big guns in the Thunderbird
offence. Levy, still bothered by
* a bad ankle, potted 24 points in
an amazing performance Friday
night and got 13 Saturday.
Wilde topped such big scorers
as Marv Adams and Dave Martin with a 2fi-point game against
Whitworth after hitting 16 against Eastern.
Part   of   the   reason   for   the
Birds' fine showing may be the
,, strong fan support they received
in both games.
Although their home Conference season is finished, plans are      HIGH IN THE AIR goes Varsity center Lyall Levy to
