Student Council president Dick Underhill stated Thursday that the cost of restoring prock Hall to its original condition will require every penny of the $50,000 goal of the building fund.
"There seems to have been
a misunderstanding as to the
amount needed to replace the
Brock,"   he   said.
"The insurance will only equal
the worth of a ten year old
building, which we must replace
with a new one."

Lambda Chi Alpha
Severs all Relations
A campus fraternity severed all connections with the
Inter-Fraternity Council Thursday.
The fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha, issued a statement on
its withdrawal accusing IFC of merely "paying lip-service to
the cause of fighting discrimination in fraternities."
The strongly-worded statement
condemned the co-ordinating
body's "limited policy" on discrimination giving that as its
reason for withdrawal.
The statement was released
after a formal letter of resignation had been submitted to IFC
head Jack Hamilton by Stephens.
The paper issued by Lambda
Chi President Vic Stephens said
IFC's mistake rested in its resi-
tancy to carry the anti-discrim-
.ination fight past the legal or
"constitutional" level.
This "limited campaign" according JLo the statement ignored the remaining moral fight.
"Many fraternities, Including
Lambda Chi Alpha, have removed the written basis of discrimination,'" it said, but that stopping there was "just paying lip-
service" to the antl-discrimina-
ton fight.
"We say that lip service ls not
enough," the paper stated.
Stephens, who offered his
name and address to "those interested in our plans," underlined his chapter's determination
to "foster inter-racial brotherhood."
"We disagree with the limited
policy of IFC on this question so
we are going alone by withdrawing from that organization," the
statement continued.
"We want to build a strong
chapter and therefore we are
looking for young men to help
us attain our object—inter-racial
fraternity," the statement concluded.
Lambda Chi Alpha was one
of the two fraternities which
succeeded in removing discriminatory clauses at summer conventions.
At that time, Stephens attributed their success due largely
to the pressure and publicity
forced on them by the press and
other bodies,
This is the latest move in a
fight that has been openly raging for over three years.
In 1051 at an AMS General
Meeting, a motion was passed
demanding the removal of discriminatory clauses by fraternities "within a reasonable time."
At a fall general meeting two
years ago this motion was given
teeth with the inclusion of a one
year time limit.
At the spring general meeting
last year when the fraternities'
time expired and nothing was
done, the motion was rescinded.
Shortly after the present "Investigating Committee" was set

Council "Benefit Dance" for
the rebuilding of Brock hall
were the unusual words:
"Please reimburse us for the

The reason: Student Council
felt that even the faculty
chiefs would not want to miss
a chance to contribute to tho
rebuilding of the Brock.
Back of the dance is a Council policy to show downtown
that the students are really behind this building campaign, a
Council spokesman has informed   The   Ubyssey.
"We feel that when a few
dollars get in the fund a lot of
donations are going to come
from unexpected downtown

amount needed to fix up the

want it.

We congratulate Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity for its
bold move in withdrawing from Inter-Fraternity Council.
IFC, the collective spokesman of fraternities on the
campus, is in a position to wage a strong campaign against
But for years fraternity spokesmen have waged a disinterested campaign against discrimination in their societies.
IFC's let's-not-get-excited policy in this regard exemplifies
the hypocrosy of this brand of "brotherhood."
Lambda Chi Alpha, we feel, has made a wise move.
Dissassociation from the policies of IFC is a good thing to
have on one's side.
The other aspect of Mr. Stephen's action is that it
releases his fraternity from the caprice of one more god.
Fraternities' main excuse for their transgressions in the past
has invariably been that of charging compulsion .by some
authority or other. A local authority has been eliminated by
Lambda Chi.
Mr. Stephens, whatever his motives in this case, does
bring to the fore an important fact. That is, the issue that
is now assuming importance in the anti-discrimination fight
—moral discrimination.
It is true that constitutional racialism is on the wane.
But that is only half the fight, and possibly the easiest
to overcome because the evil is right before our eyes.
However, discrimination functions as any bad habit. It
is offensive but you can't get rid of it.
Lambda Chi Alpha appears to be prepared to take some
definite action. At any rate they have put themselves
in a position more conducive to change.
Mr. Stephens has in effect expressed recognition to the
essence* of this question—you can't have your cake and eat
it too.
Whli Jby  tjfand
One of the subtler beauties of British governmental tradition is its strict adherence to a code of laws and rules,
which are not enforced by written statute but by the tacit
recognition that transgression on one point would lead to
the destruction of the whole system.
One such tradition (and it is a tradition rather than
a rule of law) is that civil servants refrain from participation
in partisan politics. This political abstinence has not only
eliminated political patronage and ensuing corruption but has
also assured us of capable and efficient administrators.
Yet a week ago delegates at the Social Credit convention held in Vancouver passed a motion charging that the
political sympathies of provincial civil servants were showing in overt and conscious inefficiency. Furthermore, it was
implied that since the wall had been breached, it would be
well to do away with the whole structure.
The condemnation of the Social Credit move was unanimous but rather incomplete. The press and the labor movement both classed it as an insult—the former to a significant
and subscribing segment of its re'adership, the latter to the
integrity and honor of Labor. Both groups pointed out that
the Social Credit League had not backed up its charges
with proof.
There the matter rests waiting until Provincial Secretary Wesley Black clears up the government's attitude at
the Civil Servants' convention in Nanaimo today.
But regardless of whether Mr. Black backs down or
manages to prove that 99 percent of civil servants were indeed overtly disloyal, the principle of a non-political civil
service has been challenged—not by the motion of censure
but by its motivation and implications.
If the civil servants proven to be disloyal are fired, they
would apparently be replaced by Social Creditors as the only
people to be trusted to give the government positive support. Quite apart from the fact that these "civil servants"
would be turned out with a change of government; quite*apart
from the fact that not even tho best intentioned government
could keep-the civil service free from incompetent political
hacks under such conditions, it would also mean that the
government could have no source from which to draw impartial expert advice because its political appointees would be
responsible not to the government and the people, but to the
party caucuses.
Furthermore, the remaining civil servants would then be
"free" to join political patties. Even if they are not members
of political parties at present, they do presumably have
varying political convictions. It is not hard to see that they
would eventually succumb to pressure to join the party in
power. We wonder whether it would make Social Credit a
better movement if it had these forced turncoats in its ranks,
The surprising element about the whole affair is that
no  delegate   rose   lo   question   the   proceedings.
The present furore will die clown. The motion will soon
be forgotten. Only one thing will be remembered: the retreat of individual intelligence and common sense in face
of mass .stupidity covering itself in an aura of self-righteousness.

Re: Letter from "K" ln a feature Writ by Hand. Oct. 18.
Dear K:
As a Mexican who has lived
most of his life in the U.S A.,
I am well acquainted with
racial discrimination and I am
with you entirely, both in
your general denunciation of
it and your attack on it as it
manifests itself among the sororities.
I might mention parenthetically that after extolling the
tolerance of Canadians to my
friends in California this summer, I was greatly distressed to
come back to the ugly local
incidents of racial discrimination.
However, I feel that I must
caution you that you are treading on extremely perilous
ground when you threaten, as
you do in the fourth from the
last paragraph, to blackmail
with Communism. Would you
cqt off your nose to spite your
face? You say you are "one
of many contemporaries who
has witnessed the rule of communism. Then you must
know that privileges and economic discrimination exist in
much more vicious forms in
Russia than in any of the "de-
des." This should be obvious
when you consider that the
Communist Party in Russia
numbers a scant three million
whereas the total population
numbers two million. And if
anyone thinks that admittance to the Party is an easy
matter, let him read Krav-
chenko. You must also know of
the special ration cards given
to members of the Party
which entitle the bearer to
go to special stores whose
shelves are always crowded
with goods that the other
stores never get. There"" is
further distinction within the
hierarchy of the Party. Have
you never heard of, the case of
the hungry Negro jazz musician in Moscow with a trunk
full of money?
You speak of "the capitalist
class that is still thriving on
this American continent" as if
capitalism were some sort of
anachronism or anamoly absolutely incompatible with this
day and age- In that, you remind me of the fool who criticized Spain for taking her civilization and culture to the
New World. What else could
she do? The point I am trying
to make is that the presence
ol capitalism on this continent
has a very logical explanation
and that the system has by no
means exhausted its possibilities. It that isn't true, why
has Communist Russia had to
revert in a myriad instances to
capitalistic techniques? As Montesquieu said the laws of a
country have to be relative to
its geography, its climate, its
size, the temperament of its
people etc. and they usually
arc or they get changed; which
brings us to the principle of
adaptability. In the main, Communism suits Russia better
than Capitalism, The same can
be said for most of Asia, but
it would not work here because
our problem is not underproduction but overproduction. So
please don't blackmail with
Communism. I say "It can't
happen here."
It is very alarming to see
you decry the subtle force employed by the sororities and
in the next breath threaten to
use it yourself although y*u
"hate" it.
No, dear Mr. K threats will
never gain  us  our  objective.
I don't purport to know tho
complete answer but I feci
sure that it lies along the path
of education and example. By
the way, did you know that

Editor,  The  Ubyssey:
Apathy, that imperishable
disease that has been afflicting
free men throughout the centuries, is plaguing the students
at UBC once more, the first
USC election, the Frosh election, and the first AMS general
meel ing   being   recent   victims.
Must apathy always be a concomitant of that freedom which
is taken for granted? No, it
should not.
Although our democratic in-
situtlons have been founded
upon principles of free expression, they will not necessarily
remain democratic unless they
continue receiving the support
of a free-thinking and free acting majority. Apathy, therefore, must be eradicated.
One method involves the employment, by each student, of
six men, six honest serving
men that Rudyard Kipling kept.

these men active, we can be
stimulated to offer more effective support to the more
worthy  human  endeavours.

"Convocation" should be replaced by "congregation." It
is unfortunate that universities
vary in the use of these words
and so naturally make a confusion. Here in British Columbia "congregation" signifies the
meeting at which degrees are
conferred, while "convocation"
is a large body of people—numbering in a list issued by the
Registrar in 1948 somewhere
about 9000, and practically oil
of them holding degrees from
UBC—endowed by the Legislature with certain functions
related to the welfare of our
According to the University
Act of 1911 (c. 234, par. 2, 11,
. 12, 14-19, 21) the first convocation comprised "all graduates
of any university in His Majesty's dominions who are actually residing in the province
two years prior to the date fixed for the first meeting of the
convocation, and who at least
six weeks prior to that date
register themselves as members of such convocation as
hereinafter provided," and
"twenty-five members to be
selected by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council . . . Aftgr the
first convocation all convocations shall be composed of the
Chancellor, the Senate, the
members of the first convocation, and all persons who shall
have become graduates of the
University." (This was slightly
amended in 1918).
According to par. 21, its functions "shall be chiefly elective,
but it shall be competent for
the convocation to consider all
questions affecting the well-
being and prosperity of the
University, and to make representations from time to time on
such questions to the Senate,
which shall consider the same •
and return to the convocation
the conclusions thereon."

Powerful alumni forces and
not students are responsible for
the continuance of Unfair fraternity discrimination, Mr. Abraham Arnold said Thursday.
Addressing a meeting ot the
Civil Liberties Union, Arnold,
editor of Ihe Jewish Western
Bulletin, quoted the National
Committee for Fraternities in
Education as substantiation for
his statement,
"It is strong powerful Alumni pressure that is responsible
for the retention of discriminatory clauses," he said.
Arnold also struck out at discrimination in some residential
areas of Vancouver.
"There are gentlemen's agreements between many people responsible for buying and selling
homes in Vancouver," he said.
"And many of these stem from
the discrimination practised in
Vancouver social clubs."
Arnold also discussed employment discrimination on a national scale and stated that the federal government has been the
greatest force for good in this
"The federal program of education and legislation against
discrimination has made Canada
one of the leaders in the battle
for equal rights for all citizens,"
he said.
Commenting on the local situation Arnold stated that UBC
had done far more than most
universities in ridding its campus of discriminatory fraternities.
In closing Arnold stated there
is a great need for more legislation in the field of human
rights.   .
"We must enact laws if we
are to succeed in throwing out
unfair prejudice," he said.

be set, will definitely be in place
by Homecoming Day, November
The Administration, which
was approached by the Men's
Athletic Council to put out an
estimated $1400 necessary for
the gravel required for a firm
base for the heavy stands, decided Friday to pay the bill.
The gravel was dumped before
Saturday, but the movement of
the stands will not start till the
middle of the week.
There is hope the stands' will
be ready by October 30, but in
any event they are promised to
be in November 6 for the Homecoming game.
AMS treasurer Ron Bray said
Monday the cost would probably
not run as high as expected.
The workmen discovered Friday that the soil was wetter near
the track than towards the back
and not so much gravel had to
be dumped.

of moving all the organizations

be considered.
"This fund raising drive i~
something which requires thc
> participation and support of every student," he said. "And it
is something we are going to
have to do ourselves."
College, Oxford, is "travelling
around the world slicking his
neck out, and giving other people
the chance to drop the guillotine."
He told the Ubyssey that he regretted that he had no philiso-
phical message. Philisophical
problems cannot be reached
piecemeal, and journalists who
try to summarize a philosopher's
arguments for the masses are
more optimistic than successful, he said.
In the paper that he read
yesterday, Ryle attacked those
who conceive of thinking solely
in terms of intellectutlism, ratiocination, deduction or theorizing. In thanking the speaker
Dean Chant referred to the way
Ryle had dealt with "serious
intllectual problems."
Ryle scored psychologists who
conceived of thinking only as
getting answers to questions.
Composing music, writing poetry, reminiscing, are all thinking, but they don't necessarily
involve questions and answers-
Ryle has no easy path for
those who want to do philosophy
without philosophizing. But he
suggests that those who want
to solve philosophical problems
should start in by quarreling
about them.
Vancouver symphony orchestra will make it its second
appearance on the campus Thursday, November 4 at noon.
Sponsored by the Special Events Committee the symphony, with Irwin Hoffman conducting, will give a two-

modern English composer, Benjamin Britten.
Last year the symphony narrowly missed breaking

Admission is 50c. Tickets are on sale every noon hour
at the Auditorium box office.
SEC chainnan Gerry Hodge stressed the need for a
good turnout by students.
"This is not a rehearsal but a full scale performance,"
he said.
"We all want the symphony out here but if we don't
break even this will be the symphony's last appearance
on campus."

CPS Loggers Might
Need Pass Attack
Gerry Stewart's Return
Builds   Birds   Hopes
College of Puget Sound Loggers may discover Saturday
their diligent work in developing an aerial offense and defense
to be used against the Thunderbirds was not all in vain.
It could be they will even discover it won't be good enough.
This piece of information, one
of the most heartening Birdwatchers have had for a few
weeks, comes with the announcement that quarterback Gerry
Stewart has recovered from an
injured nose and will be back in
action for Coryell on Saturday.
Stewart, who is the spark of
UBC's pass defense, and the
quad's most successful passer,
will be accompanied in his return to the fold with left-half
Gary Williams, out of action
with a bad leg last week.
Jim Boulding will be out of
course, but his place will be
taken by Ross Rayment.
Birds' attack may find itself
again thfs weekend, especially if
the ball carriers find some
blocking. '
The line will be the-same as
•last week, with end Charlie
James still out and new lineman

hard he even got knocked out,
will also be in for the Birds.
The fans too are in for some
added benefit. Not only will the
revitalized Birds be at their best,
but also most of the extra stands
will be in place, Homecoming
queens will be presented, and the
UBC band, that purveyor of fan
stirring music, will be placed in
the student section, thereby adding to the general fun fest.
Bring along the whole family
too. They can be whipped by the
ticket takers entire and intact
for the price of one buck. The
whole family yet.
The only blotch upon the general festivities are the Loggers,
who will be exhorted by coach
John Heinrich to go out and flatten the Birds, thereby hoisting
themselves into second place.
Heinrichs brings along a team
with an impressive four out of
five record, and a 77 to 39
against point record, 33 of the
against points were incurred in
their fateful battle against the
Whitworth Pirates
Following the swing of other
campus groups, Rowing Club,
who were to hold a trip raising fund danct Saturday night,
havt decided to call their bash
off and join in the roof-raising brawl in the armouries.

"The Cross-Country-Comet", Our Petey Harris, excluded,
the UBC rugger Braves are at present unique in varsity sport
ing enterprises.
Credit for the Braves' success
belongs to the team as a whole,
and the dogged stamina instilled
by their coach, Dr. Maxle Howell. The team is sparked by
"Genial Jawn" Mulberry at fullback, a relatively new boy to
football, whose booming kicks
and sterling defensive abilities,
may conceivably force him into
a promotion to the Chiefs' squad.

Varsity  XI
For  Second
Varsity are expecting their second win when they take
on Royal Oaks at Central Park, this Saturday, while Chiefs
would be content with a tie when they play Sunset on the
campus, both games going at 2 p.m.
Injuries to Mark McDonald
and Trig Carlson have weakened
Varsity but John Green, formerly of McGill, will be in the forward line with Jerry Rovers,
last year's "B" team top scorer.
The two are expected to strengthen the weak scoring punch of the
Varsity   boys.
Ernie Kuyt will be playing
his first game as a Canadian for
Varsity this week. Formerly a
Dutchman, Kuyt has now become a Canadian citizen. At
times he has been the only man
on the field for Varsity.
Next Thursday, November 4,
Varsity takes on Navy on the
campus at noon. It will be another event for homecoming week.

should be in fine shape.

Spartans are working themselves into top condition, and
timing this conditioning so
that they hit their peak on
November 10th. On the 10th
the results of their build-up
will explode in a single burst
of effort, when they race the
University of Washington's
Varsity  crew  in  Seattle.
While the Varsity crews
race, the UBC JV rowers meet
the Juniors of the U- of W.,
and the U. of Oregon's number one, team, who do not
feel that they are of Washington or UBC calibre yet. After
these races, rowing conditioning will taper off at UBC until
after the Xmas break.
From January to Spring the
physical and mental build-up
will commence all over again,
but this time with a more
serious goal in view. In May
Varsity's BEG champions head
to California where they cross
oars with the top crews of the
United States; Navy, California, Stanford, Washington, and
so on, who rate with the best
in the world.
The U of W test on November 10th will be an indication
of UBC's ability, for Washington is rated as one of • the
better crews in America, and
therefore   the   world.
