Social Credit Reform
Superfical - Thomas
Pat Thomas, campus CCF leader,
charged, at yesterday's Forum debate on the resolution that the
"Sojclal Credit ls the new expression of the old line parties" that
the same forces which support the
traditional parties are backing Social Credit.
Thomas declared that on the
surface the Social Credit group
appears to be a reform party.
"However," he said, "we must
judge them by what they do, riot hy
what they say." The decision to
carry on with free enterprise, even
though in a patched up form, the
speaker maintained was the fundamental point of similarity between
the Socreds and the old-line parties. Like the other tree enterprise groups the Socreds are, according to Thomas, democratic
wl\en it pays. They carry out social
reform when they are forced to do
so in order to remain in power.
Finally,   he   declared   the   Socreds
and the old-line parties Show their
inherent similarity by the ease
with which they band together to
combat  Socialism.
John ('oates, in favor of the nega
tive, declared the difference be
tween any of the political parties
Is only one of degree. "The CCF
for one,'' he maintained, " is prob
ably no more different from the
Liberals than is the Social Credit." Consequently, Social Credit
would be no more an expression of
the old-line pa. lies than the CCF.
('oates furthermore maintained
that features of Social Credit such
as its tie-in of religion and poll-
tic's, it's distrust of the UN, its
tinges of anti-semitism, clearly
serve to set it apart as something
different  from  either the  Liberals
or the Conservatives.

Warns Grads
Ignoring Past
"The direct opposite of error is
not necessarily truth," ' said Professor Dennis Brogan in giving
the convocation address to 5o0
graduating students last night ln
the Women's Gymnasium.
We of the "between wars, generation" have shown that reacting
blandly against the errors of parents and teachers Is not a path to
truth, he continued.

Referring to the aspect of a

mentioned that many young men
and women may" wish to be rid of
the "heavy inheritance ofa the
But, said Brogan, many of our
problems are rooted in the past.
They are unintelligible without the
past. Not only do we live by Invention and disepvery, by asking new
questions and getting new answers,
but also we live by getting old
answers to old questions because
they are  the best answers.
A university, maintained the
speaker, must pose and answer
both types of questions.
Professor Brogan also referred
to the geographic position of British Columbia and its university.
This university ls "one of the two
nearest academic neighbours to
the  USSR."
UHC is an "outpost* a bastion and
a tower of strength," Brogan continued. He stressed to the graduates that they must garrison this
bastion, If they thought their families and academic begetters had
not  done a  perfect job.

Out Of The Evergreens .,.
... And Into The River
Hie campus is once again in the throes of
atjhletic revisionism, an epidemic which grips
UBC periodically as an aftermath of an unbroken series of defeats on the playing field.
.Various disgruntled sports fans are now
proposing that we get out of the Evergreen
Conference. Their recommendations on what
we are to do with the teams we have, vary.
One group proposes that we join city
fc*gues, hoping thereby to turn a siring of
df teats into a just as emphatic string of victories. 'Others have a scheme which is even
lell subtly designed as k cure of fan frustration. They advocate that we pick our opponents "we hive a chance of beating," e.g.,
opponents we can beat.
Neither of these plans will do anything
towards improving the standards of competitive Sports of UBC, nor, for that matter,
sports fan morale.
What fan, what player will be cheered by
eventual victory over a team, for which, as is
inevitable under present conditions, we had
tp search far and wide only to find it in
some one-room schoolhouse.    -
We ajjjree with the fans that student money
is being wasted, that good sportsmen are -
needlessly frustrated by continuous defeats,
and finally that the prestige of this university
is suffering. We maintain, however, that all
thf schemes that have been proposed to patch
up the situation will not hide the fact that
as far as American football is concerned, this
university is washed up.
Consequently, no matter what course of
action may be taken in other sports. American
football ought to be dropped from the list of
UBC competitive sports.
The reasons are obvious in the very fact
that have been raised in a gridiron tradition.
Meanwhile, in the furore of tiie Evergreen
Conference dilemma, another change in the
UBC athletic picture has been shoved into
the background.
Th? Senate has niade a ruling, which it is
now reconsidering, excluding aU freshmen
from first string lineups. The reasons given
for this move are various, and, taken singly,
quite sound. ,
However, we must also view the Senate
decision in a more fundamental light. The
Senate's move aims right at the very core of
the principles tihat constitute a university as
opposed to simply fi high school or tehcnical

litjar, Sir;

uf the article entitled "Adaskin

Barbara Pentland's Compositions
as "balderdash" but he made no
Inference that the Ubyssey was
dishonest ln printing this criticism. Furthermore, though Professor Adaskin, contributed his
time and effort to give interested
students (a) very outstanding
talk on his subject,/ the reporter
made no mention ,of it
1 think a reporter should strive
to give accurate information and
also worthwhile criticism but also
not fall to give thanks and credit
where they ai-e due.   ,
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir;
Your Tuesday editorial on gutless engineers fas forceful and
to the point. I think, however,
that your criticism should Have

majority of Canadian university

they are virtually fed Into a state
of intellectual anaesthesia. Moreover, We are here ln Canada, indoctrinated at an early ajje with
the notion that, every one Is
someday going to be the big boss
at the head of the corporation.
The feeling created by this
Idea is that the best way to get
there ls to cling tenaciously to
the Ironclad rules of conventionality. Consequently, the university comes to he looked upon as
a means to a mea-1 ticket and as
an "open sesame" to a position
of responsibility. Compare, this
state of affairs with the situation
In what tire supposed to be the
"loss progressive countries" such
as.Prance, Egypt, or* the lands
of the Far East. There the universities are genuine centers of
intellectual ferment and political
action. In addition, the pleasures
of the flesh do not seem to be
held ln quite as lofty regard as
here. /
It ls inevitable that this sterile
attitude on our part Is going to
be reflected In our outlook and
ln out- leadership. Unlike those
of European countries, for Instance, very few of our national
leaders seem to have the kind iff1
personality that makes fhe
"sparks fly." Again, this attitude
is expressed with regard to national deVeiopment. Instead of foB-
terlng a spirit of a "Drang nach
Norden," instead of breaking open the Yukon and the Northwest
Territories, we cluster along the
beyond   the   pale   of   American

uavsiev cussifibp
Supposedly a student entering university is
mature enough to pursue the tasks he has
taken upon himself by enrolling in the school.
In other words, it should^ be taken for granted
that a university student will, by his own
volition, devote as much time and energy to
his studies as his chosen courses demand.
At UBC this principle has already been
breached by the requirement that students
attend at least seven out of every eight lectures. This rule, however, has not been strictly enforced.-jp^e new freshmen ruling, then,
is a stronger step in the saipe direction. It
usurps the weakened authority of parents in
determining what students may do or may not
do, and finally; it deprives students of the
right and occasion to determine where and
how they intend to spend their time and
While the freshmen ruling may seem advantageous at the moment, it will in the long
run serve to grind down our university to an
unrecognizable shadow of what a university
should be.'
Plugged Nickle
While everyone else at the faculty Club reception was busy making
flattering little comments about
the Massey Report to its author,
1 stuck to the weather.
It Isn't that { couldn't, or
wouldn't, discuss Canada's cultural
Blue Book. It's Just that, well, I'm
a friendly, agreeable sort or chap,
with big brown wagging eyes and
a shaggy mien — and I hate rights.
Particularly with Governors-General (whicli happens to he the right
way to plurallzo It, smarty.)
Vm one of thoso people who Is
5 hybrid of virulent reaction and
ewy-eyed Internationalism. I believe, on the one hand that no
nation can consciously develop a
culture by subsidies, commissions,
or bureaus; that culture Is a sum
total of Individual expressions of
personal or national emotion, ami
that those emotions mils' be natural and not Induced.
On the other hand, I don't much
care whether Canada is a cultural
well-spring or drain-pipe, just as
long as we in this country are
allowed free access to the knowledge and self-expression oi' all
people. The Idea of National culture
is long overdue for scrapping. Experiences and emotions, the raw
materials of culture, arc now largely standardized among the Western
Nations as the isolationism which
lead to individual cultures and
ethnic quirks no longer exists. Artistic achievements are the work
or Individuals in a larger Western
It is only nations like the Soviet.
Union which consciously try to
replace tills semi-universal sense
of values with a "national" culture
oppressing artificially Induced "notional' sentiment and Judged by a
bureaucratic .standard 6f values.
Love or country expressed In
terms of loyalty to the principles
tor which Canada .stands is a fine
thing; expressed In terms of narrow nationalism, cultural or otherwise It is a denial or the genetics
of social evolution. Take a case:
I would much rather listen to n
good production by the American
Theatre Guild than a hammy one
on the much-vaunted and much «uh-
sldized Stage 52 which I probably
can't, understand anyway because
tt's written In a pseudo-Greek
Idiom. And I will not listen to nn
hour-long ' forum on the mating-
habits or the armadillo just because
a Canadian Crown Corporation
thinks it's good ror me — in case
I ever meet an armadillo I like.
i don't mean that I don't think
that worthwhile cultural contributions by Canadians ought not to be
encouraged or oven solicited, financially and otherwise. I'm Just aa
proud or a good Canadian book or
painting as the next fellow. What
I don't approve Is the futile search
for something ''typically Canadian''
the son of thing that cause our
artists to struggle through opus
if ter opus of the .Mounty in the
Great North, the 'Habitant and the
waving fields of wheat (shimmering gold in the sunshine). It Ls
also tho type ot thing which causes
us to snipe at our American counter-parts merely because their cultural output Is, quite naturally)
the result of more people, more
money and more talent. This petty-
fogging nationalism causes us to
praise  and  coddle  poor quality  at i
by franck
home while snobbishly neglecting
or excluding the cultural output
or other men In other lands.
To me, a cultural medium Is
"good" only because I like It, and
I couldn't care less if It came from
Pravda and consisted or Vishinsky's doodlings at the purge trluls.
And If Canadians don't happen to
doodle as well as Vishinsky, then
let's concentrate on something we
can do well and not encourage Inferior doodling.
In short, I don't tliJnk much of
self-conscious groplngs for national
culture.- It leaves our great nation
open to the charge of having a
national Inferiority • complex. It
comes from people who would have
ns adopt an identifiable "nationality" even If we all have to go
around looking and acting like
couriers de bois.
When we do get around to some
great cultural achievement — und
Britain doesn't seem terribly worried about waiting 500 years for a
first-rate native composer — then
it will be something recognized on
Its own merits, and not as something typically Canadian. We may
as well lace It. National culture
lias gone the way of the Dodo Bird
— and a good thing, too (about the
culture, I mean. I have nothing
against  the  Dodo.)
And so, every time the OBC ups
Its Jamming power, I'm going to
buy a more powerful receiver, so
I can listen to KIRO If I feel like it.
My sympathy goes out to the
thought-controlled little people in
Kaatern I'lurope who also struggle
lo pick up the Voice of America.

Editor, The' Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Ic tfcc guest editorial which you
kindly printed In the Ubyssey'of
October 28, the printer made an
omission In one of my sentences,
which mak&s lt seem very intemperate; it was originally, us submitted:
"To assume otherwise (that the
mind does not function Independently of nature when thinking rationally) ls to presume that
the finest piece of scientific reasoning ls no better than the
aberrations of one afflicted with
delerium tremens."
Also, my spelling should have
been "Magdalen College."
Sincerely* yours,
Editor, The fcbyssey
Dear Sir: .    '

Chains That Bind Me
NEWSPAPERS have never been noted especially for their ethics.
One of the many problems that a person in a public position faces is
the question of reporters.
In general reporters have never been accused of being too ethical
and anyone being iritervlewd by one ot this breed has to be careful
what to say and what not to say.
There Is nothing quite so embarrassing to a responsible person as
picking up a paper and reading some statement attributed to him whicli
he did not wish to have printed. Usually the reporter who resorts to
this type of news-gathering Is a fledgling byllpe- hungry scribe.
iMost reporters and correspondents ln responsible positions ln
politics, sports, or the entertainment world, have built up a reputation
on their ability to use their own discretion on when to print a question*
able story and when to suppress lt.
By "questlonabje" we mean a story or' statement which some
personality reveals In a fit of anger, resentment, etc., or which ls
understood by both parties to be "off the record."
this type of newspaperman Is often taken Into confidence by
responsible people with the understanding that the Item ls not for
publication until an official okay Is given.
NEWSPAPER readers will remember the furore in the newspaper
world over the Oerman surrender In 1945. While negotiations were
going on correspondents from all the major news agencies 16 the world
were let in on the talks on an agreement that the final surrender story
would not be. released until Allied officials gave their oonsent.
A correspondent for one of the American news agencies pulled a
fast one by releasing the story a day ahead of time and thereby earning
himself a "sooop" over all the other correspondents, lie also earned
himself the undying disgust of the hundred of other correspondents.
This headllns-happy boy succeeded In getting himself blackballed
from all newt agenoies for his little trick.
This type of reporting does nothing to endear newspapermen to
officials. A local example of how a Reporter can put personal glory
above ethics and qualify himself as a tint claas heel was the story ln
Tuesday morning's News<Herald revealing a plan by a group of UBC
students to, do something about the Thunderbird football team.
Eight UBC students who are genuinely concerned over the state
of UBC athletics got together Sunday night to talk over ways and means
of remedying the situation. They studied the Ostrum Plan and hoped
to come up with some constructive Ideas on how to raise the Birds
from their present lowly state.
'   They planned to formulate a plan and present It before UBC
students at an AM8 meeting.
One of the members explained the set-up to the News-Herald
reporter. This reporter, who happens to be a student at ,U»BC end
therefore should have a little sympathy with the athletic problem here,
rushed down to the News-Herald and wrote a Juicy expose telling pf
how this group was out for the scalps of Jelly A!ndersen, Dick Penn
and Bob Osborne. '
ALTHOUGH the meeting was just an Informal bull session the
Herald gleefully played It up as its lead story on the sports page and
Made It sound as if the terrible eight were planning to assassinate
Penn and Co. at sundown.
The story also revealed the names of some of the students at the
meeting, therefore placing those students ln a very embarassing
position. *
Because of the indiscretion*, of that reporter, the president of the
MAD, who attended the meeting strictly tn a private capacity, found
himself In a difficult position. *
Tb« Kbyssey knew of the meeting and the reasons it was called
Uioi* thfcii a week ago. The Sports Edltof was present at the meeting.
The campus correspondent for the Province was at the meeting but he
too used his common sense In holding the story until plans could be
organised and presented before the students.
The other two downtown papers Immediately picked up the story
from the Herald and printed stories that UBC students were revolting
over their athletic system. The administration was put on the defensive
by the stories and the group who started the plan had one strike against
them before they started.
Th*e sports staff of the Ubyssey doesn't claim to put out a perfect
' sports page but I think vve have  the common sense to know when to
print a story and when not to.
Jayvees Clobber Sailors,

UBC Takes
First Game
UBC'i Junior Varsity football
team .ihowed tbe Tbunderblnl,
how to win a game when thjy
whipped HMCS Naden 0-Oln the
j,tadlum dt noon yesterday.
Using a strong ground attack
and behind the able handling of
quarterback Roger Kronquist, Dick
.Vltchell's Jayvee squad had little
trouble with the team from Esquimau.
The UBC team got off tb a; shaky
start as Kronquist fumbled the
ball on the first running play of
the game. However, after that the
Meraloma star called a perfect
game as he pitched the ball to his
running halfbacks, who went for
large gains through the Naden
Une. '
The Naden team was playing Its
first game of American football
and quarterback John Barr could
not get himself unpacked. The
sailors' play Canadian football In
the Victoria Intermediate League
and as far as they are concerend
UBC can keep the American game.
In the first quarter the Naden
squad drove to the UBC 25 yard
line. After falling to gain on three
running plays the Naden quarterback tried a field goal but it went
The UBC touchdown was scored
In the second quarter when Frank
Vaselenak, behind'some beautiful
blocking, ran a punt back 35 yardi
for the major. The attempted convert by Kronquist was missed- ■
Highlight of the game was the
running of h*a I f b a c k s Rue
ROss add Frank Vaselenak. The
Jayvee defensive unit also playediv
fine game, especially Al Bradshaw
snd tiny Carl Saarlnen.
Also outstanding were Sig Hutli,
the Chiliiwack Charger, and Wild
Bill Hutchison, the two-ton tank
from Moosefoot, Saskabush.
ezzy The clown
During the dull moments of the
•-'iiine. the public address announcers, Al Ezzy and Bill St. John, entertained the crowd with their pro
tound knowledge of football. Ezzy
is leaving for FM mon ton with the
CYO football squad today and it
is none too soon.
Jack And Jelly Shoot The Works
As Basketball Teams Open Season
Birds, JV's
Start Hoop
L'BC sports fans are In for one
of the biggest weekends of the
year as just about every team on
the campus will see action by Sunday night. Feature attraction, o°
course, will be the big Homecoming game between the Thunderbirds and College of Puget Sound
Saturday  in  the stadium.
Although Jelly's men of Iron
aren't given much of a chance
ugainst the powerful CPS squad,
they will be giving their best amid
all the bands, hoopla, parades, ballyhoo and Homecoming princesses.
Over in the gym Saturday night
Jack Pomfret will unveil the 1952-
53 edition of the UBC Thunderbird
basketball squad. The Birds will
be playing Grads In the annual
Homecoming Game.
Richard Penn will also reveal his
Jayvee outfit when they meet
Cloverleafs In the North Van Community Centre Sunday night. Beating ail UBC hoop teams tn making
their debut will be the Braves,

Turning buck to football (we
can't very well turn away from it)
the Thunderbirds have picked a
real iloozer as a Homecoming op
poiient. Although the Birds could
have scheduled Slippery Rock

tided to live dangerously and will

t'ollcgie ui  1'ugrtt Hound is rated
righj up there with Western Washington and Pacific Lutheran as tho
big bad bullies of the Evergreen
Conference who spend their spare
moments mashing teams such as
Birds will be at nearly full
strength for the scrimmage with
our friends from below the border.
Gordy Flemons will be back Hanging them from his quarterback spot
and Oeorgeous George should be
ready to dangle.
Bill Hortie will likely miss the
game   and   captain   Bobby   Hind
march may be floored with infection in his underpinnings.
Time of the contest is 2:15.
Time of the appearance of the bare
skinned beauties Is half-time or
approximate'^- between the second
and third quarters.
A big crowd#ls ^expected to be
present at the coming out of Jack
Saturday night. Before the main
contest a group of Old Grads will
drag their middle-age puunchea
around the floor in a valiant ef-
'fort to find the Fountain of Youth.
To Heck With Ike
It is sakUhat all great minds think alike. If so, we on
the Sports Staff would like to take this opportunity to
impress on our thousands of readers, near and far, here and
there, intelligent and illiterate, that WE GO FLO.
We have known Flo McNeil for a long time. We have
known her with printers ink smeared on her profile and
with copy paper clutched in her tender little hand. We have
known her as she blasted the snob-shop in the caf and when
she weepingly sympathized with berated, snivelling little
We have known her as a humble Women's Editor. Now
we hope to know her as a proud and haughty Homecoming
Queen, who now and then brightens our lives with a slight
nod as she steams through the awe-stricken Sports Section.
We, knowing Flo so well, prophesy great things for
this raven-haired light of the Sports Staff. She will go far—
even out of the clutches of Laughing Fred Edwards. We
can see it all now: Flo McNeil, UBC Homecoming Queen;
Flo McNeil, Miss PNE; Flo McNeil, Miss Canada; Flo
McNeil, Miss America; Flo McNeil, Miss Universe; and Flo
McNeil, Miss Lacrosse Stick of 1953.
For this reason, We, the Sports Staff, proudly announce—WE GO FLO.

Boys Will
Play, Then Dance
UBC's two soccer squads take to the, playing field this
weekend with vengeance in their hearts  and Homecoming
Queens on their mind as they prepare to wrap up two victories
over opposing teams and also hope to wrap up something at
the Homecoming dance Saturday night.    ■
The   Varsity   soccer  squad   will*-;
play   on   Saturday   afternoon   at
2:30 at Memorial South Park. The
Ohlef team will play at Memorial
West on Sunday.
The Birds will play the tough
Dominion Hotel team and the
Chiefs will meet the equally tough
Bluebird squad.
The Varsity squad will take the
.field with the following points lu
mind, whicli they did not show
last game.
(1) Good team play outside of
physical condition  is important.
(2) Improvement of angular
(3) Less ball play In the air.     <
(4) Possession of the ball. It's
hard to get. Keep it when you've
got lt.
The UBC team will be out for
their first win of the season. So
far they have tied two and lost
one. After last week's setback they
have been practicing hard and
hope to break into the win column
this weekend.
The soccer squads have obtained  the  field   house  from   4:30  to
6:30 on Wednesday. All those who
could turn out at the area are
asked to do so.
