leadership Conference •
What Price Free Discussion?
And Who Foots The Bills
In Modern Industry:
News Editor   Al Forrest
Assistant News Editors: Bob Johannes
and Helen Zukowski
The purpose of the Leadership Conference is to provide an opportunity for student leaders and representatives of Faculty
and Administration to meet and openly discuss common problems of organization and
administration on this campus. The original
planners of the Conference hoped that from
these discussions would arise smoother
operating methods, closer cooperation between students, between faculty and students, and between students and University
Administration.     ,
When the idea of such a conference
was first suggested three years ago, Administration and Faculty agreed that here was
an excellent opportunity1 for improving'
problematic conditions, and, apparently
wholeheartedly, accepted invitations to attend the discussions. In these past years
many improvements in operating methods
and in student-faculty relationships have
appeared as a result of the discussions. Both
discussion summaries and reports on results
have appeared in this newspaper after each
This year the discussions brought out
one major problem affecting al! students
and their organizations. Student delegates
were, almost unanimously, disturbed about
the«fe>U,niversity Administration Buildings
and Grounds Department which, they felt,
held an untenable monopoly on buildings
being constructed or improved on campus
and which charged exorbitant prices to
student organizations for work done by
the department. The newspaper reported
this as it has reported all Leadership Conference events.
This year for the first time we have
heard complaints because the conference
results have been reported here. These
complaints come from a member of the
University Administration.
Dean Andrew, whether speaking for
himself or for administration, stated that
a) he was not aware the press was present
at the conference; b) the story (regarding
Buildings and Grounds Department) should
not have been printed because the Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds had not
been present at the conference to defend
himself, and c) that reporting of events or
of events arising frorn the conference is a
"breach of faith." Another faculty member
added to the charges that reporting of conference discussions would inhibit free discussion in future. Dean Andrew summed
up his criticism saying: "This sort of thing
destroys a certain part of the value of
Leadership Conference."
We question the merits of this argument.
On the first charge, we point out that
reporters have attended all conferences in
have been received on this account. Report-
the last three years and that no objections
ers have come at not only the invitation
but the insistance of Students' Council.
Furthermore, faculty and administration
the presence of reporters and seen the
have, before this, not only been aware of
printed results of their presence without
raising complaints, but have aided the re
porters in giving accurate accounts of discussions. ,
Secondly, whether or not the supervisor-
was present, the event did occur and the
complaints did occur. What occured at the
conference is news to the students who
finance and are affected by it. What occured
as a result of the conference is also news,
and such news is the business of the student newspaper. The report in question,
that on Buildings and Grounds Department,
appeared four days after the conference
when the reporter had re-checked all complaints aired at Elphinstone, studied students' council correspondence with the department in question, questioned many
students, faculty members, administration
members, and the AMS business staff who
were not at the conference, and surveyed
all material evidence supporting the claims
made by complainants. Not one quote from
any conversations at Elphinstone was printed and all remarks recorded were printed
with the permission of the speakers. This
was clearly stated in the article.
We cannot' see how it is a "breach of
faith" for a student reporter to report the
results of a conference designed to gain results for the student body which is financing
it. The body is entitled to all information
regarding the disposal of its monies and to
information regarding the activities of representatives, elected or invited to represent it,
when those activities are engaged in for
the purpose of furthering the interests of the
body. The newspaper in this role is merely
handing on such information and in so doing,
reflecting student opinion.
If free discussion is to be inhibited because the students who are financing and
being affected by the conference are informed of its results, then free discussion
is a meaningless phrase. Is discussion to be
free only so long as it is kept secret? Ii
students or faculty wish to carry on their
own private discussions about the campus
they are certainly free to do so at any time.
But if th^y attend a student-financed
conference with the avowed intention of
improving any malpractices or deficiences
existent on the campus which directly affect the student or faculty bodies, and in
the scheduled discussions at this conference achieve a measure of results through
their efforts, then why should they fear
letting the students know of the results?
If delegates are afraid to speak freely about
problems because they do not want to see
the solutions effected of discussed away
from Elphinstone, there would be no point
in holding the conference.
On the other hand if the purposes of
such a conference have been achieved or
even partly achieved, even at the expense
of what would appear to be a malfunctioning department under administration, and
through the medium of free discussion, there
is no reason to suggest that any value of
the conference has been destroyed. The reporting of the achievement to students and
faculty not present is much more likely to
further the aims and expedite the results of
the conference than it is to destroy its value.
Throne Speech Creates a Dilemna
The Speech from the Throne Monday
showed that the Diefenbaker government
intended to go as far as possible in bribing its electorate to put a majority Tory
government in power next year.
The bribes, however, are worth a second look. Not only the Saskatchewan Dam
project, but the old age pensions, the war
veterans' allowances, and the national development policy to "share the wealth" of
natural resources; all have been and are an
integral part of any Socialist platform. It
is for these measures that M. J. Coldwell
and his supporters have spent their lives in
the political arena. It is these measures that
would have been effected had a CCF party
ever gained the power reins in Ottawa.
It will be with these measures as
bespoken in tiie Throne Speech that the
Tories will campaign in the coming election.
Tiiis leaves no room for the Liberals to
begin anew advocating a stronger programme that will appeal to an electorate.
The Tories have said  the last  word.
The real tragedy of the election and of
the speech, although both will be ol' benefit
in the long run to Canadians, is the dilemma now facing the CCF party and its leader
M. J. Coldwell.
The Canadian voter has never seen fit
to vote for a party which was in name as
well as in intention a Socialist party. Perhaps to catch votes the Winnipeg convention of the CCF two years ago decided to
move further right in its political policies.
However the voter finally elected a party
which, though traditionally anti-socialist,
advocated the very measures which the
Socialists have fought for over the last 30
years. The new government in Ottawa, even
while run by Mr. Diefenbaker, appears
likely to be the instrument for implementation of Socialist ideals. In becoming such
an instrument, the Tories have moved considerably left of their right position. So
left, in fact, that despite the pre-election
cries of being too far removed from the
CCF policies for a coalition to be even considered, they are crowding the Socialists
out of their new-found position.
Now the dilemma i.s: Which wav does
Mr. Coldwell go'.'
Trade Unions Are Necessary
And Must Be Powerful
Legislation Is Weakening
The difficulty in dealing
with the criticism that trade
unions are "too powerful" is in
trying to assess what exactly
the critic has in mind. Is the
criticism the result of a general
dislike of organized action on
any level or does it entail the
acceptance of organized action,
but opposition to the way in
which such organization is impinging upon different sections
, of society? If the latter is the
case then perhaps the question
can best be considered by discussing trade unionism in relation to society; the employer
and the rank and file members
of the union itself. Considered in this light, trade unions
are certainly powerful but it
is this writer's opinion that this
situation is both inevitable and
In considering the relation
of the union to society in general, it must be accepted that
workers will always form societies revolving around their
trade. Although basically different from the modern trade
union, trade guilds existed rn
ancient India, Rome and in
Europe until their abolition in
the late 18th century.
It was only with the coming
of the industrial revolution
that working men's societies
having as their object the regulation of conditions for work
were outlawed as being illegal combinations in restraint
of trade. Obviously, this robbed the worker of any moral
status which his work involved.
He was reduced to the position of an anonymous "hand"
whose only right was to receive a wage. He was forbidden to associate with his fellow
workers for any purpose relating to their common employment and was thus denied the
sense of purpose and belonging
which comes from having a
moral stake in society. But
this atomization of industrial
society and its resultant degradation of the worker could not
last for ever. It was inevitable
that the common interests and
problems of men doing similar
work would reassert itself. The
only real question was the
form of organization which
this community of interests
would develop in the modern
The form which the modern
union did take was of course
dictated by the development
Of modern business and industrial organization. Corporate
organization on the one hand
was to be paralleled by the
modern trade union oh the
other. Just as individual ownership and control of business
was giving way to highly centralized corporate, control
through a representative management, so also the individual
contract of employment was
giving way to the collective
contract negotiated by the representatives of the employees.
As business expanded, the
trade unions expanded and a
basic structural change took
place in the economy. The
United Steel Workers of Am-
• erica became the counterpart
of the United States Steel Corporation.
The more powerful the one
became, the more powerful the
other had to become if there
was to be anything approaching equality in their bargaining power. As a % result, the
United States Steel Workers
today have the power to influence the steel industry —and
through it the rest of the economy — proportionate to their
strength and determination to
wield such power.
The same applies to the owners of the corporation itself.
The power of the union is thus
the consequence of this type
of industrial organization more
than it is the actual aim of the
union. The restraints which
temper the use of this power
are the same as the restraints
which affect other powerful institutions in society. If we are
to apply the same test which
the Supreme Court of the United States applied to the U.S.
Steel Corporation (in an alleged violation of the Anti-
Trust Act) then neither size
nor potential power arc in
themselves socially undesirable.
As far as the relation between the union and the individual employer is concerned,
much has been made of the
fact that the unions are constantly 'encroaching' on 'management prerogatives'. And so
tjjey are. Thus, to the employer who believes that he has
a divine right to operate his
business in any>vay he pleases,
this is yet another instance of
unions becoming "too powerful."
This criticism, which presumably would strictly confine
labor's jurisdiction to sUch
things as wages and hours, is
apparently based on the theory
that the worker is justified in
striving for the maximum benefits from industry while accepting the least responsibility
for the proper functioning of
the source of these benefits.
The union is encouraged to accept the business ethics of an
age in which all else was subordinated to the acquisitive instinct. Fortunately, however,
organized labor is beginning to
realize that the maximization
of pecuniary income without
any concern for the source of
such income is not the proper
end of economic behaviour.
This realization has come
about in spite of management's
insistence on their "prerogatives." As a result, union leaders today are claiming the
right to jointly discuss problems which affect the worker
as well as the employer.
Since almost every innovation contemplated by the employer affects the employee's
job and consequently the security of himself and his family, the rigid distinction between management's prerogatives and the rights of labor
are being obliterated. This is
a desirable trend since the
union's increase in power is being accompanied by an increase
in responsibility. The union
must either seize this increased
responsibility or accept the
role of an industrial interloper.
The old order changeth. The
employer will have to accept
the fact that industrial welfare
is as much the concern of the
organized worker as it is of
management. He will also
have to accept the fact that this
increases the power of the
It may be that the critic of
the "powerful union" is concerned with the relation between the union member and
the union as an institution. Instances in which union members have been expelled for
violation of the union's constitution immediately come to
mind. Here, at least, the critic
is on stronger ground. But
the criticism is best directed,
not    at    the   existence of the

And since Albert and I first
conceived of the following
idea, years ago, our attitude to
life and hi-jinks has changed,
to that serious state where we
would never avail ourselves of

short, we are on the wagon.
But on behalf of the memories of days that are past, and
for those who yet have the
days to come, wc make the
following plea.
The campus needs a pub.
Now the chances of it having
one are slim. But we cannot
help envying our brothers at
Toronto and McGill, where
during the  lecture  break,  stu-
dents dash across the street,
down two, and dash back to
During a four lecture morning one can build a very respectable base for afternoon
At UBC, there would be no

do not have the downtown location of Toronto or McGill, in
fact the setting we could offer
to an aspiring tavern owner is
quite pastoral.
Picture a sunny afternoon at
the Dolphins, that excellent tea
and dining room overlooking
thc strait.
The westering sun shining
through one's glass, the crackle of the fire reassuring to
one's ears, the quiet and delightful conversation of, what
is so unusual in a Vancouver
drinking establishment, a human   who  does     not     have  to
shout in one's ear to make himself heard.
Quiet feet on the rug, walking through thc shaft of sunlight that pours through the
leaded windows, a waiter appearing discreetly at your elbow.
"Your pleasure, sir?"
"Four here, please, and another four for those interesting
young ladies in the corner
Ah, the gallantry of it all.
The traditions from the past

power itself, but at thc fact
that this power is ill-defined—
both in law and in thc union's
Tiie power to suspend or expel is after all all necessary if
the union is to prevent infraction of the collective agreement which it enters into with
the employer.
It is also necessary in order
to deal with minority groups
who would foster dissention
within the union for political
reasons. However, these powers miust be exercised with the
most careful regard for the
rights of the individual since
expulsion, particularly where
there is a closed shop agreement, is a most serious matter.
The fact that this power is
subject to abuse arises from
the legal fiction that unions
are "voluntary" associations
which a man joins of his own
free will. Hence, he is taken
to have accepted the organization as he finds it.
Where there is a closed shop
agreement, this is obviously
not the case. But the solution
to this difficulty is not the abolition of the closed shop but
rather the setting up of machinery whereby disciplinary
powers are more carefully defined in the union's constitution and perhaps are subject to
the review of an impartial
third party,
More topical at the moment
is the power which the international has over the local union
and the abuse to which the
trusteeship principle has been
subjected. ' Again, this is an
internal matter which the
unions will have to reconsider.
Failing this, the legislature
will have to reconsider it for
But once wc accept the fact
that powerful unions arc both

society, we must be on, o^i;
guard against those who woui
seek to weaken    or    destroy
unions as such under the guise
of passing legislation seeking
to uphold the "rights" of* the
individual member.
The most important right oi
the worker is the right to organize and bargain collectively. This right has led to powerful unions and in the present
industrial setup, unions are
either powerful or they are
nothing. The Mr. Bounderby's
of modern industry will have
to accept the fact.

Before any official orders are
issued, Mr. Bennett is expected
to put into play the rumors,
hints, denials, veiled threatss
slips-of-the-tongue, unofficial announcements, reports-from-usual-
ly-reliable-sources and the rest
of the political mish-mash that
has created effective confusion
in the past.
Then the party caucus will
put its ear to the ground, its
nose to the grindstone and its
shoulder to the wheel and go
to work.
The name of the country will
remain British Columbia in order to preserve its advertising
value on Wall Street. The hymn
"Rock of Ages" will be adopted
because of the significant value
of the Rocky Mountains reference (you know, a sort of immunity barrier). The national
motto "From here to Utopia"
will convey the spirit of Mr.
Bennett's creation.
By the way, Squamish—where
Premier Bennett is considered a
sort of North American Prester
John — will become the capital
of B.C. and the seat of government for all sessions but the
winter. This will be held in
Henry Kaiser's Hawaiian Village.
Eventually, Mr. Bennett feels,
politics and other examples of
social discontent will disappear.
The country will live in a paradise based on simple Christianity and a bustle of business formerly experienced in Egyptian
concubine markets when ex-
King Farouk paid a visit.

The club is planning a publication^ which will reflect current conservative political philosophy.
It is hoped that this paper

While lighting standards have improved
in most homes, the proportion of your
electric bill that pays for lighting has
decreased considerably.
Today, in the average B.C. Electric residential customer's home, electricity is
doing many, many jobs: washing and
drying clothes and dishes, heating water,
cleaning, keeping and cooking food,
entertaining — even keeping the clocks
on time.
Our average residential customer is now
using nearly three times as much electricity as in 1946, but paying less per
kilowatt hour. True, your bill may be
higher than it was in 1946. But when
you add up the number of appliances you
now enjoy, you'll understand why you are
using much more electricity in your home.
By any comparison, electricity is today's
big bargain.

Paced by Inco's new developments in
Manitoba, producers put 1961 Free World
nickel output at 650-675 million pounds
a year—up 130% over 1951
In 1951, the nickel industry of the Free World
produced about 290 million pounds of nickel.
Last year, the overall output of the industry set a new
record high of 450 million pounds.
This was an expansion of more than 50% in five
years—a substantial production boost that indeed
benefited industry, but only after vital defense and
government stockpile needs were given preference.
New Inco developments help set new goals
Right now Inco, with years of explorajion behind
the project, is pushing construction at its new
Manitoba mines—developing in the far North a
new, big-tonnage nickel-producing area.
In 1961, this, together with the progress under way
at Sudbury, Ontario, should lift Inco's nickel output
to 385 million pounds a year. A hundred million
more than in 1956!
With the steadily increasing capacity of all Free
World producers, in the next Tour years nickel
production should be lifted to thc all-time high of
650-675 million pounds a year.
With 1961 capacity anticipated at more than twice
what it was in 1951—and with continuing research
and exploration—nickel users are assured of more
nickel in their future.

Desmond Fitz-Gerald announced that the entire performance was most majestic. The
speech itself, he went on to point
out, was "Pithy and to the
A survey of general student
opinions only served to reflect
the political sympathies of the
individual interviewed. "Nebulous," "a poor speech, well
read," "an optimistic program
but difficult to put into effect,"
were a few of the typical comments. A very common criticism
was that the speech had a provincial or local taste, appealing
to i n d i v i d ual constituencies
rather than to the nation.
One student complained that
the farm policy was a poor one
because it only imitated the
form of farm subsidization found
in the United States. This student also pointed out that Canada had been a leader in farm
policy in past year, but was now
only imitating one of the biggest imitators in that sphere.
With regard to opinions
voiced by political groups on the
campus, the spokesman for the
Conservative party, Terry
O'Brian stated, "The Throne
Speech accurately reflects the
Conservative campaign pledges
given before June 10. As well,
I believe that it has the support
of the people of Canada aa a
bold and aggresive approach to
,the problems which confront the
nations in this new era."
O'Brian's sentiments were
supported by Lynda Gates who
declared that the speech contained nothing more than .was
contained in the Conservative
election promises, all of it good,
sensible, progressive legislation.
With regard to the Queen, Miss
Gates found her "lovely," that
her voice "dropped at least two
octaves" and that her French
was "surprisingly good."
John Mackay, president of the
Liberal club, speaking in an executive meeting stated that the
speech was "obviously one made
to please everybody." He went
on to suggest that if the government had prepared a speech
suitable for a long term program, it would inevitably have
had to coincide with Liberal
Mackay also remarked that he
hoped the fact that the speech
was transmitted through an
American micro-wave system
would enable the Americans to
appreciate what an excellent
system of government a constitutional monarchy is.

and see" attitude, remarking

1818 students attended the
clinic to give an amount of 1402
pints of blood. A higher number
than usual were rejected because of colds or flu.
Last year's Fall Blood Drive
brought 1749 students and produced a net donation of 1690
pints of blood.
Last week's donation was only
73 per cent of the 2000 pints
set by the student committee in
charge of the drive.
Col. Freeman praised the
work of the hard-working blood
committee and reminded students that the next blood drive
would probably be in the first
two weeks of February.

Held To
No Score
In the season's opener, UBC
Chiefs and the Vancouver Rowing Club played to a scoreless
tie, Saturday, at the Lower
Brockton grounds.
A hard driving rain hampered
the game considerably, but
spirited running and hard forward play from both sides made
it a good one to watch. The overall margin of play was certainly
in the Rowing Club's favor, and
they could well have lost, but
for some good tackling and defensive kicking from the Varsity squad.
UBC's backs showed well
even with the greasy ball, but
thc forwards were definitely
outplayed by the Rowers.
The game rapidly developed
into a see-saw affair with the
forwards controlling most of the
play. However, one good three-
line run resulted in the Chiefs
actually crossing VRC's line.
Early in the second half, on a
three-line run from the Rowers'
25, five-eighths Peter Tynan cut
in beautifully, Beat two men,
and passed to Dave Howard who
sprinted over from thc 10.
Unfortunately, on a dubious
decision, the last pass was called
forward and the score nullified.
Also, the kicking of Paddy
Sloan and the safe hands of John
Mulberry saved many dangerous situations.
The Varsity's forwards, however, were not up to their usual
standard. Except for Derek
Vallis and Mike Chambers, the
pack showed a lack of drive in
both the line-outs and the
scrums. VRC won 10 out of 15
tight scrums and consistently
outplayed the Chiefs in the line-
Both sides had numerous
chances to score from penalty
kicks, but the heavy ball was
more than difficult  to raise.

UBC Short On Players And Height
As the pre-season basketball
practices swing into full tilt
at UBC, head coach Jack Pomfret is not to be found in any
mood resembling one of gaitey.
His not slight remorsefulness
i.s due to three outstanding
facts': — t h e disappointingly
small turnout for practices —
(only 50-60); the poor condition of those turning out (this
will set the training program
back two weeks); the report
that other Evergreen conference teams are, to say the least,
According to Pomfret the
Thunderbirds this year are go
ing to •'suffer from a distinct
lack of height." But it is the
opinion of this writer, ignorant in the science of basketball
as he is, that what the 'Birds
might lack in height they are
going to make up.for in speed
and hustle, with the likes of
Barry Drummond, Eddy Wilde,
Lyall Levy and Ken Winslade
going for them.
I believe that this team will
play a smart, smooth, fast game
which is definitely a pleasure
to watch, win or lose. And the
'Birds are going to win their
share of games.
But in getting back to the
Birds height problem although
Pomfret is quite concerned he
realizes it is not a lost cause.
He is fully aware of and quite
high on the potentialities of
fi' 5" L'ince Stephens coming
v,y from the Junior ranks.
Also, there i.s a possibility
that   (>'   fi"   Mike   Fraser.   who
missed all of last season with
a back injury, will be back in
action. If Mike were to return this .year and were to take
up from where he left off two
years ago, when he was a definite going concern, a lot of
'Birds' problems would be at
least solved.
For the Jayvees and Braves
it i.s just a matter of patiently
sorting out the talent and waiting for Thunderbird 'castoffs.
But so far as the Jayvees are
concerned, one thing is certain, no matter what calibre of
players coach Pete Mullins is
presented with, they will be
whipped into a classy and contending club. This has been a
pleasant mark of distinction
for Mullin's teams at UBC.
As   Jack   Pomfret   prepared
for Friday afternoon's practice,
he said, somewhat seriously,
somewhat with his tongue in
check, for each and every boy
over G' to turnout for the daily
practices. As Pomfret said
this there v/as a taint of fond
hope in his voice that he might
possibly come upon another
Geof Graig. Goof was a boy
of about 6' 7" who had never
played n game of basketball
until he turned out for UBC.
In his senior year he was
named to the Evergreen conference second All-Star team.
Quite a feat for a kid who had
never stepped on a basketball
court until four years prior.
In   thc  meantime,   however,
the   basketball   policy   at   thc
War  Memorial  Gymnasium  is
one of wait and see.

UBC Skiers
Begin Work
Vigorous training has started
in another section of UBC's tremendous athletic department.
Bruce Vercherc, manager of
the Men's Ski Club reports that
35 men arc working out thrice
weekly in preparation for the
team trials at Rossland during
the Christmas holidays.
Al Fisher is again coaching
the team this year, with thc assistance of Harvey Abell who
will train the jumpers.
Bob Davis, Dave Jones, Peter
Miller, Ray Ostby, and letter-
man Don Sturgess, all members
of last year's team, are attending workouts.
Letterman John Piatt, who
skived with the team last year, is
leaving in December for the
World Championships in Austria.
The Varsity skiers will be attending intercollegiate meets at
Rossland, Banff, Kimberly and
Steven's Pass this year.
Coach Fisher is very optimistic about thc team's chances for
this winter and confidently expects to win at least one meet.
Last year UBC won their home
ni'eet at Rossland.
All indications point to UBC's
best ski team in years.
