 TURNOUT 'LOUSY'
McLean,  Hutch, Cop  Second Slate
By SANDY ROSS
Wednesday's second slate
AMS election which featured
one of the liveliest campaigns,
and one of the lowest voting
turnouts in years, saw Bob
McLean elected First Member-
At-Large, and Bob Hutchison
elected President of the Men's
Athletic Association.
McLean defeated his only
opponent, Phil Greenberg with
a total of 1227 votes to 650.
In his new capacity as First
Member, McLean will be
charged with the responsibility of organizing next year's
Homecoming Weekend, and
will serve   on  Council  as   a
Bob McLean
sort of "errand boy" on various committees.
In his campaign, McLean
promised to work for an
East-West Football or Basketball game in connection with
Homecoming Week. "I still
intend to do that," he said
Wednesday, when Informed of
his victory.
New Men's Athletic Association President is Bob Hutchison, this year's Secretary of
the organization. A second-
year Law student, Hutchison
is a happily married man,
and lives next to Presidentelect Ron Bray ln Acadia
Camp.
He defeated his only opponent, Gordie'Mundle with 914
votes to Mundle's 500.
Hutchison has promised to
attempt to secure 93000 of this
year's AMS Budget surplus to
send UBC'a famed Rowing
Crew to the Henley Regatta
in England this summer.
The decision wtll rest with
the students at the forthcoming AMS General Meeting on
March 18th, and Hutchison
will "Pack tne meeting with
athletes, if necessary."

words of Elections Committee
Chairman Ralph Sultan, "dis-

Student response to the blood drive was termed "excellent" Wednesday by Major W. A. Freeman, Blood Donor Panel

Paint-smudged Mamooks members, the people who paint most

"Kelp!" they burbled, Ever

Open House is a big deal, and

Mysterious Thugs
Attack Student
A UBC student was beaten and left unconscious by three
unknown men at 2:30 Wednesday morning as he was returning
home to Union College from work.
Douwe Bakker, a third year
Arts student, who works the
night shift at Canadian White
Pine sawmill, was pushing his
bicycle along a path between
Union College and the Government wireless station when
three men jumped on him, demanding his wallet.
They robbed him of nine dollars and left him unconscious,
with his right ankle tied to a
tree by his shoelaces.
He was still unconscious when
found at eight o'clock by John
Nichol and Bill Graves, also Union College residents, as they
were on their way to breakfast.
Bakker, a student from the
Netherlands, could not identify
his assailants or give any motive
for the attack other than robbery.
"I saw three men but I have
no idea who they were. I was
knocked unconscious," he said.
He is now in good condition
in Wesbrook Hospital, suffering
from shock and minor facial
abrasions.
RCMP officials have had no
success in determining the identity of the attackers. It is not
known whether or not they are
UBC students.

NEW   SLANT   IN   POOL   DEBATE
Need of Dorms is Greater
A new slant was given to
♦he pool controversy Tuesday
noon when Bill Trar.v suggested the available funds be used
to "starl the ball rolling" on
a campaign for dormitories.
Tracy presented his unusual views in a three way hassle
sponsored by Parliamentary
Forum with Ken O'Shea and
AMS President Hick Underhill debating the t.opie Should
tiie   Pool   be   Hoofed'.''.
"Dorms with heat, light,
comfort and quiet are of more
immediate necessity to students   Hum   such   luxun    ilems
as swimming pools,"   he said.
"Although dorms are not
technically a student responsibility, administration and
downtown interests might bo
willing to put up the necessary capital if students take
the initiative in raising funds
for the project," he maintained,
"There is no provision in
recent government allotments
to construct residences. The
first two grants are going towards F ac ii 11 y buildings,
which will leave student housing at a standstill for the next
five   years,"   he   added.
Tracy also brought up the
problem of future increases
in student population figures.
"Increased enrollment means
higher rents as campus and
surrounding housing areas get
overcrowded," he added.
Dick Underhill defended the
"town pool" plan on the basis
of capital cost.
Supporting a roofed Empire Pool. Ken O'Shea demonstrated how cutting costs
on landscaping and such innovations as sliding doors, could
bring down the estimated $90,-
000 to a more reasonable $40,-
000.
Slaves Slip
Clutches
Of Lawmen
Indignant Lawmen hollered
"Fraud" yesterday when the
"slaves" they bought at auction
in the Auditorium slipped, from
their clutches.
With malice aforethought, the
Lawmen pooled their resources
and attempted to corner the
market, succeeding in buying
up two of the three choice specimens on sale, Julie Grimson
and Mrs. Bev Underhill.
They planned to have girls attend classes with them in the afternoon in order to open doors
and carry books. Later, the
slaves were to serve them with
food and drink (coffee) in the
Brock cafeteria.
When the girls escaped them,
they turned the fury of their
wrath on M.C. Don Jabour,
claiming that the whole business was a fraud. Jabour asserted
that he was blameless, and that
the Lawmen "just weren't capable of holding onto them."
Garth Dorman, Arts 1, complained of a similar difficulty
with his purchase, slave-girl Sue
Laurie.
The big Pet Meet also featured the Totem City Jazz band,
a six piece Dixieland group who
provided background music for
the auction.
Financially the meet was successful, with a gross receipt of
$116. This will be enough to
send one extra man to California with  the rugby  team.
The Musical Society was fined
$5 last week for failing to notify the Co-ordinator of Activities
of their intention to hold a party
on January 28th.
The Society also failed to submit an estimate of the cost as is
required  in all such cases.
A long-awaited Inter-Fraternity Council committee r*port
dn fraternity discrimination was made public by IFC Wednesday. It revealed the approximate extent of discriminatory practises at UBC, and recommended that the problem be approached
through the National Inter-Fraternity Conference.
The report recommended dissolution of the AMS Committee
on Discrimination, on the
grounds that "it does not have
access to as much information
... as do the members of
IPC . . ."
The committee also sectuwd
pledges from the three fraternities on campus which still retain the offensive clauses to form
blocks to vote against retention
of the clauses at their General
Conventions.
The committee learned the extent of discrimination at UBC
by means of questionairres
which were filled out by all 16
campus fraternities. The queries
were returned unsigned since
the Committee felt that this
way, they would receive a "truer
picture" of the situation.
The recommendation for abolition of the AMS Discrimination Committee was accompanied by a provision that an ex-
officia non-fraternity "watchdog" be placed on the IFC Committee.
The AMS Committee was
formed by resolution of a special AMS General Meeting last
March. It is headed by the USC
Chairman, and includes IFC and
Civil Liberties Union representatives.
The recommendation to approach the discrimination problem through the National IFC
was said to be "beneficial" to
all concerned."
The National IFC is an advisory, international body which
discusses questions of common
Interest to all fraternities. Explained Committee Chairman
Jim Carter of Delta Upsilon,
We feel that we should make
use of this organization; after all,
that's what it's there for."
The committee was composed
of Jim Carter, Dick Bird of
Lamda Chi Alpha, and Bob Dixon of Sigma Chi. It was formed
early last November as a result
of a dispute between' Lamda Chi
Alpha Fraternity and IFC, in
which Lamda Chi accused IFC
of a "wait-and-see" attitude towards discrimination.

Press  Release
The report by IFC's discrimination committee serves one
purpose: it tells us that there are nine fraternities which
admit to racial discrimination.
It does not name them.
It cleverly makes no mention of religious discrimination.
It gives us only a number: a number which is very close
to what we all had in mind anyway.
The report is sprinkled with such high sounding words
as "morally," "commendable," and "honesty," but it boils
down to little more than a second rate attempt to improve
Greek public relations.
The greater percentage of its text is not devoted to providing facts, but rather to justifying and qualifying its meager
findings, or defending the unnamed UBC fraternities from
attack.
The reasons given for not actually naming the fraternities
are somewhat inadequate. The guilty fraternities owe it to
UBC students to reveal themselves.
Arid the reason given for not even requiring that answers
to the committee's questions be signed is conclusive proof that
UBC Fraternities are trying to cover up their discriminatory
practices. Judging from the evasion in the past, truthful answers to the committee's questions were much more likely only
if the fraternities were required to sign their names.
In its attempt to picture UBC fraternity members as conscientious fighters against deserimination, the report even'
stoops to dishonesty at one point.
In answer to the question "do you practice 'racial discrimination" (see report) notes that a "yes" answer is given
by only two of the three fraternities known to have discriminatory clauses, then concludes that one fraternity is defying
its clause.
l$ut all the rationalizing in the world cannot hide the fact
that the fraternity is simply telling a lie. It does discriminate
racially and must keep doing so to remain in existence. It is
not defying its discriminatory clause, it is merely covering it
What is most disturbing about the report — aside from
its utter inadequacy — is its failure to make any mention of
religious discrimination, or even define the fraternity concept of "discrimination."
How many of Ihe other seven fraternities discriminate
on the basis of religion is an interesting question. As far as
the report is concerned, its ommission ol' such a consideration
amounts to a stamp of approval for religious bigotry.
More than anything else, the report demonstrates that
fraternities at UBC are reluctantly fighting discrimination in
their ranks only as a public relations gesture, and only as long
as they are pushed from behind into battle.

IPC   REPORT
Seven
On Discrimination
Editor, The Ubyssey:
It is fashionable in Canada,
and The Ubyssey is nothing if
not fashionable, to attack
South Africa's racial policy
and to laud the nations of the
Indian sub-continent as paragons of democratic virtue. In
line with this policy you suggest that the Commonwealth
notions condemn South Africa
in order to assuage the hurt
pride of India, Pakistan and
Ceylon. While this is very commendable, may I ask where
the condemning is going to
stop? Let us start wilh Canada.
Tell me, Mr. Editorial Writer, if Canada believes in racial
equality, why is Asiatic immigration strictly controlled? Tell
me why you have Indian reserves? If we move Bantus in
South Africa into a separate
area you condemn our actions.
In Canada you have your In
dians on reservations. Of
course that is different. 1 understand.
Another point, that has worried me for a long time is the
difference between partition
and segregation. I am sure that
you can clear it. up witli your
tremendous, omniscient intellect. Why is there partition on
the Indian sub-continent'.' II
wouldn't be that the Muslim
minority was afraid of being
dominated by the Hindu majority? Of course, Pakistan can
have partition and South Africa can't have sei;re'.',at ion. I
understand.
Now let us deal with the
mother of the Commonwealth
—• Great Britain. Perhaps you
noticed the fuss in Britain
caused by the immigration of
West Indians? Just a riot or
two. and that is understandable
when you consider that there
are all of fifty thousand West
Indians in Great Britain. Don't
you think il strange that the
Minister of State for Colonial
Affairs admitted that some
form of limitation of West Indian immigration into Great
Britain is being considered?
Possibly, instead of attacking
South Africa you might attack
Great Britain.
Now, Mr. Editorial Writer,
I won't go into the detail of
the new Central African Dominion or the colonies in East
Africa and their policies of segregation. I will, however, say
one thing more. When you get
out: into the hard, cruel world,
and out of your little all-white
Vancouver, and get a little
sense into your head, we will
be glad to hear from you.
When you can suggest some
way of South Africa extricating herself out of her racial
difficulties we will be glad to
hear from you, It is easy, very,
very easy to criticise and to
solve problems which you
yourself don't have. Please
remember that.
One last word on the subject
and   I   refer   \ ou   to   the   New
Teslaim nt,   Matthew,   VII,  5.
D.  D.  HOWIE
Arts   2.
Following  is  the  text  of
the  report of  Inter-Fraternity  Council's  discrimination
investigation  committee.
The report is divided in three
sections:
a) The results of the survey
with their interpretations.
b) The recommendations a-
rising  from  the   survey.
c) Recommendations concerning the future of the committee.
a) Results of the survey with
their interpretations,
The survey was -conducted as
a ballot to determine the situations in the 16 active fraternities on the campus, with regards tq the discrimination
problem. The content of the
survey will be dealt with later.
The returned ballots were unsigned as it was the opinion of
the committee that a truer
picture of the situation would
be received if individual chapters were not required to be
identified with a particular answer. As the whole problem of
discrimination in fraternities is
often one of degree we felt
that the benefit of the doubt
in questionable cases, would be
given to us if the cjuestionaire
remained secret.
1. Does your international
constitution contain a discrimination clause?"
Yes 3. No 13.   •
Pre-determined results oc-
cured in this question with 3
fraternities stating they had
such clauses and 13 stating they
did not. This question was
used to help determine the
validity of the quiz.
2. Are such decisions left
to the local chapter?
Yet 7. No 9.
Of the 16 fraternities answering only 13 could answer
yes to this question because of
the clauses mentioned above.
Yet only 7 of a possible 13 do
answer yes. The inference here
is that although only 3 fraternities have discrimination
clauses, an additional 6 must
refer such cases to their international fraternities.
3. Moraly do you feel that
your international fraternity
it completely non-discriminatory?
Yei 9.  No 7.
As in number 2 above a
possible 13 fraternities could
answer yes yet only !) no. This
means that there arc 4 fraternities which, although they do
not contain clauses, discrimin
ate on the international level.
If these l are added to the 3
which have clauses and to the
additional 2 which must refer
to their internationals on such
matters there is a total of 9
fraternities which show varying degrees of discrimination
on the international level.
4. Does your local group
practice  racial discrimination?
Yes 2. No  14.
The results of this question
show that 1 fraternity disre-
stitution to maintain their
gards their international con-
"peace of mind" in regards to
discrimination. This may be a
commendable practice but it
is by no means a solution to
the problem.
5. Would you be in favour
of seeing th fight against discrimination carried to the
N.I.C. through the U.B.C. I.F.C.
Yes 15. No 1.
The results of this question
show the overwhelming sup
port of the fraternities to a
fight against discrimination on
the   U.B.C.   campus.
b) Recommendations arising
from the Survey.
1. As the latter of the five
questions circulated indicates
a near 100% agreement in
carrying the discrimination
question to N.I.C, it is recommended that such action be
followed. With this fact in
mind, we quote the following
passage from that group's constitution.
"The purpose of the National
Inter - fraternity Conference
shall be the discussion of questions of mutual interest and
the presenting to fraternities
represented of such recommen
da tions as the conference shall
deem wise, it being understood
that the functions of such Conference shall be purely advisory."
Although this »roup is "advisory" in purpose, we feel that
a statement frpm the U.B.C.—
I.F.C. staling thc problem and
environmental conditions
would be beneficial to all concerned.
2. The committee has receiv
ed voluntary written guarantees from the Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma, and Alpha Tau Omega stating, in the form of a
written pledge by each of these
groups, that they would send
delegates to their respective
conferences, with instructions,
at least three months before
such conference, to gain sup
port from other chapters to
wards the ousting of discrimination clauses. In addition to
prior correspondence with
these chapters (to obtain a
block of affirmative votes towards the removal of discrimination clauses), delegates
would attempt to gain admittance to constitutional revision
committees so formed. This
step would effect a close re
presentation, and opinion, on
any suggested'constitutional revisions, concerning discrimination.
These steps will lead to a coordinated effort prior to a national or international confer
ence and give said chapters a
definite stand in the settlement
of this question. Such preparedness can, we feel, be' best fulfilled by following the above.
c) Recommendations concerning the future works of the
committee^
It is recommended that the
Committee of the Inter-Frater
nity Commiittee be constituted
a standing Committee of the
Inter-Fraternity Council. The
problem of racial discrimination appears to be one which
may remain for some time.
The committee did not expect
to find an immediate cure-all
for the problem and has found
none., A permanent Committee
would ensure a continuous coordinated approach to the discrimination problem.
If this discrimination is accepted, then it is further recommended' that the Committee;
1) Arrange with one chapter which feels that it's International fraternity fosters an
unwritten understanding between it's chapters to promote
Iracial discrimination in the
selection of members, to organize a bloc of chapters to go
on record as repudiating such
an understanding. If the chapter selected for this purpose
meets with success, then the
Committee should draw attention to this fact so that other
UBC fraternities with similar
problems will have a guide to
follow in their efforts to combat agreements of this kind.
2) Gather information at
UBC from all available sources
and by all appropriate means
including the use of hearings of
persons claiming that the so-
called gentelmen's agreements
are in force here, in order to
determine the degree of racial
discrimination practised here.
Thc problem cannot be solved
until it's full extent is known.
3) Study   the   practicability
of inducing the AMS to dissolve
it's committee on racial discrimination in fraternities and empower the AMS Council to appoint one or more non-fraternity  men   as   ex-officio   members   of   the   IFC   Committee
It is submitted that the AMS
committee does not have access
to as much information on the
subject of racial discrimination j
in fraternities as do the members of the IFC and therefore !
cannot   meet   ths   problem   as I
effectiviely   as   can   the   IFC j
Committee. Thc AMS, however,
representing thc student body,!
deserves an assurance that the I
IFC   intends  to   approach   thc
problem     with     honesty     and;
strength    of    purpose.    If   this ■
recommendation is adopted and '
implemented   the AMS   would ;
have at least one watchdog on
the Committee,  and represent-1
ing th interests as the student i
body   as   a   whol,   would   add i
weight  to the committee decisions. !
4) Sumit an annual report in
January outlining action taken
by Ihe committee and progress
made during the previous year.
At    this    time   tiie    incumbent
Committee members should be
replaced by persons' appointed
by the president of the IFC.
5) Pursue other courses of
action appropriate to its aims
and make further recommendations to thc IFC as it sees fit.

The meeting produced no concrete results.
Since its formation nearly a
year ago, the Committee has
mailed questionaires to North
American Universities to find
out how they are meeting the
fraternity discriminaion problem. The replies have been summarized but no recommendations have yet been made.
The IFC abolition proposal
met with approval from all members of the Committee except
Civil Liberties Union Delegates
Freda Messerschmidt and Daryl
Anderson.
By the IFC proposal, the CLU
stands to lose at least one voice
— and two votes — on campus
discrimination Committees.
Messerschmidt and Anderson
appeared lukewarm on the abolition recommendation, but reserved their decision until next
Tuesday's Meeting. •
Other >Committee members
pointed out that CLU has nothing to lose by the proposal. "You
would always have recourse to
the AMS if you were not satisfied with IFC's conduct," said
UCC President Dick Reopel.

Howell's Hopes For Conference Win
Soar As Students Turn Out For Team
School  Spirit  Really
Came Through-Max
By KEN LAMB
UBC's hopes of winning the Evergreen Conference Swim
Meet March 5, clashed Monday when six of the team members
were declared scholastically ineligible, rose again as five students immediately answered Coach Max Howell's frantic call
for help. «
Howell said he was "overwhelmed" with the school spirit that came through and filled
his team.
"We's still got a chance for
Conference     Championship."
he added. UBC hu won the
swimming championship   for
the last six years, with the ex-^
caption of 1953.
MEET CANCELLED
This weekend's meet, scheduled against Eastern Washington
and Idaho, has been cancelled.
Howell said the poor showing
UBC would have made would
have been bad for morale.
Instead the team will compete
at Tacoma against that city's
YMCA. "It will be a trial meet,"
Howell said, "and will give the
team a chance to prepare for
March 5."
UP HOPES
Max's hopes shot up when
George Cross and Jerry Marik,
both Conference veterans, turned out for the team- Marik was
a standout on the 1953 squad,
but expects difficulty in crossing the U.S. border.
He will consult with immigration and border authorities this
rfeek.
Other turnouts have been
Jim Skantlon, Walter Otto, and
Paul La Pointe. The latter admits he is more famed for his
football, hockey, rugger, and ale
quaffing than for swimming, but
shows promise.
REGRETS
Howell's chief regret was
over the work and training
the six barred members had
undertaken. "They've been
training for six months for the
March S meet. Now it's all
gone to waste," he said.
The six, Don Pearson, Bob
Bagshaw, Wayne Pretty, John
Purdy, Don McLennan, and Mike
McAllister, were ruled ineligible for failing to obtain 55 percent average in Christmas exams
Howell, a graduate of Sydney
(Australia) and California Universities, said it was unfortunate such a ruling was in effect.
"It's done only in this continent," he said. "Universities
of other countries don't have
such rulings. They leave it up
to the student whether or not
he wants to pass."
The   team  last   week  beat
Western Washington 45-32.
Sports Editor—KEN LAMB
LIKE MANY of UBC's great strapping athletes, Paul LaPointe, football, hockey, swimming, (see story alongside)
and rugger enthusiast, likes his afternoon snack. And what
do athletes have for an afternoon snack? The answer is
plain to see. —Brian Thomas Photo
JAVEES   LOSE
Refs   Rhubarbed
By Adanac Coach
ADANACS 44 - JAYVESS 41
The Jayvee basketball team got the short end of their
first game of a three tilt semi-final in the Senior A League
playoffs Tuesday night. Playing on the home floor of the
Adanacs of New Westminster fame, they tied the score with
three minutes to go but were edged 44-41 at the ball.
The Little Birds came back
to the floor after the half, nine
points behind. They tried to
make the best of a dull game,
but the only real life was supplied by the Adanac coach, Ken
Wright.
Championships
Girls Ski
Meet At
Grouse
UBC's women's ski team and
Grouse Mountain's Blueberry
Bowl play hosts this Saturday
to four universities in the
Northwest Intercollegiate Ski
Association.
UBC will compete in the
■Giant slalom with Montana,
Washington, Washington State
and Western Washington. The
team, coached by last year's
winner, Yvonne Legace, is
made up of MarJ Joyce, Pat
McPeely, Louise Backstrom,
and Sue Rae. Miss Beck is
sponsor of the team.
Trophies will be presented
at a banquet following the
race, and there will be a dance
at the upper Chnlet on Grouse"
Saturday night.
Meet Raises
Fly' Money
Albert Laithewaite's migrating rugger team grew one larger
Wednesday when a combined
pep meet and slave auction drew
500 customers and a profit of
just over $70.
The meet was staged to raise
money over and above the normal rugger budget, which takes
care only of train tare to California.  Albert wants  to fly.
NEEDS ANOTHER
Albert says he can now take
17 players though he also said
he needs a minimum ot 18.
The Law faculty cribbed the
auction, pooling their finances
and grabbing off two campus cu-
ties for book carrying and waste-
paper basket emptying in the
law building.
Also, the Braves-Birds name.
scheduled for noon today in the
stadium, has been cancelled because of wet grounds.
NOT SO GOOD
Things weren't going well and
Mr. Wright took special exception to the referceing.
The New Westminster boys
got control of the ball though
and potted their insurance
points to have tempers.
Frankie Tarling and Gordie
Gimple looked good with 10 and
14 points respectively. Ex-UBC
boy, Bobby Ramsay was the Adanac big gun and led his team
with  16 points.
HOTTER COMPETITION
At King Edward Gym the
competition was hotter as the
Jewellers downed Cloverdale
61-54 in their first best-of-three
semi-final game.
The disputes were as hot over
referees a-i over the baskets and
both teams are demanding changes. A total of .'54 fouls were

Grasshockey
Team  Ties
Varsity grasshockey received
a minor setback Saturday when
the "new look" Vancouver team
held the Varsity squad to a
scoreless tie.
Loaded with new internationals and backed by a strong defense, the city team, which earlier was near the bottom of the
league, kept Varsity off balance throughout the game.
Varsity   scored   three   goals,
but all were ruled offside.
UBC team did not play.

Fitba' Team Looks
To Higher League
UBC has a fair chance of entering its Thunderbird soccer
team in the Pacific Coast League "A" Division next year.
This was revealed Wednesday
by soccer manager Lincoln Gob-
erdhan. UBC is currently in the
lower regions of the Coast
League "B" division.
RAISE STANDARD
Goberdhan was confident the
team standard could be raised
to A division calibre. "With the
exception of Dick Matthews, our
defense will be back next year,"
he said.
"We also hope to get a player from the A division and are
expecting a couple of good players from Trinidad," he added.
High scoring forwards Stan
Glasgow and Bruce Ashdown
will also be returning to the
team.
It is also well known the executive of the Coast League
would like to have the use of
UBC stadium. At present, however, the field is booked throughout the year by football and
rugger.
