 MAD Budget
(This is the second in a series dealing with athletics at
UBC by Ubyssey editorial writer Chuck Coon.—Editor)   .
(Editorial Writer)
Student Council has not yet seen the budget of the Men's
Athletic Association for 1951-52.
This,has kept AMS treasurer Phil Anderson in • tizzy. He
waa pacified to a degree by the .'financial statement presented
to council January 21.
the Board of Governors.
Nearly $18,000 of student money
was turned over to MAI) at the
beginning of the year. Until a week
ago, council had not heard a thing
NO. 44
The actual budget cannot be ap-
p^vad officially by council until
tm Athletic Board, sees lt.
Tiie Athletic Board has not been

about MAD expenditures.
Council ls at least supposed to receive minutes of MAD meetings.
Bduoatlon Dept. to a School was MAD president Bill Sparling claims
announced just one week ago by j his board did not keep minutes.
Confused • By Ostrom Plan
In his annual report to council-
Mr. fljp|rilng said, lie was confused
by the Ostrom Plan and its provisions. He blrjfmag part of the confusion on the lack of an annual
report from Brock Ostrom, after
whom ihe series of recorilenda-
tidfts was named,
His a serious matter when the
%tudent head of athletics is unfamiliar with .the athletic revamping
program he is supposed to be in
charge of.   '
Thank  goodness Brock  Ostrom
remained on the campus this year,
•aid Mr. Sparling.
•Otherwise we could have chaos.
Its |dear that Mr, Ostrom should
have jnade an anfcual report in
this the first, and crucial, year of
,*be,jiew athletic set-up,
And Mr. Sparling yas lax ih fail
ing to report to council until the
fiscal year wag half over.
Perhaps' it would have been better for Brock Ostrom to have run
for MAD president this year.
It is easy to say: if this is an
example of .student administration,
let's have no more of it.
But university students are supposed to be future leaders of tho
nation. They must get some experience at university.
Admittedly, it is difficult to
judge the success of a four-year
plan in the middle of its first year.
Yef, It relations between student
council and the MAID are going to
be strained to this extent every
year, the Ostrom plan is sure to
end up'ln the quicksand.
ccess Depends On AAAD
The success of the Ottrom Pla a
naff well depend upon what happens in the Men's Athletic Directorate during the rest ofUhe year.
The financial report submitted tj
council contains one piece of encouraging news. The American
football e*pedlturesx show a surplus of 1272,42. t    \
However, according to the terms
of the *MMeM fetMftt fend, *iu>
AMS ls not held responsible for
paying injury bills.
As a result ot this antiquated accident ibenefit plan, the athletlo
department has run up an injury
bill of close to $1,500 only part of
which has been paid by the accident fund.
But the accident benflt fund is
another phase ot the problem, it

Andre Segovia Plays February 5th
Currently* dh his eighth consecutive American tour, Andre
Segovia will come.to university
for a recital on February Gth
at the Brock Hall.
The virtuoso, to whom seven

noted   contemporary   composers

tinns, is also a specialist in the
music of the classic period, in
eluding Johann .Sebastian Bach.
Many of Bach's works were
originally written for the lute,
and transcribed by him for other Instruments. When Segovia
alltempted early in his career
to broaclen\the guitar repetolre
he turned to the original lute
■parts because of the in^'tni-
menta' similarity to the guitar.
When Andre Segovia was a
young man, he determined to
make the guitar his career and
to   prove to  the   world   that   It
was more than an Instrument
suitable only fo dauce rhythms
and song accompaniments.
In ills autobiography, the famous guitarist has told how
strongly he felt: "I decided I
would be the apostle of the guitar, or, to put It more exactly,
her husband before God, swearing to provide bet* with all that
she might need so that the
world might respect her and receive her with the honor she
deserved ... I would be entire

Are You A Slacker
elections ih the wind, the question has been asked
lately just what does Students' Council do?
Unfortunately most students become interested in the
iCouncil's work only when something sensational happens.
However the great part of tiie Council's work is to act as a
cdordlnirting body between the subsidiary organizations on
•A* oampua, between the students and-the faculty, and between
UB.C. and other Canadian universities. Thus'the Council acts
as a channelling body for student activity.' *
A glance at Counoil minutes each week would give one a
birds-eye view of all the different types of problems which
lhe Council handles. However, besides these activities in
Council meetings, a vast amount of interesting work is done
by each councillor in a number of committees and in his own
particular office.
Students' Council is charged With promoting and con*
trolling the extra-curricular activities of one of the'most
autonomous student bodies in North America. Let's all do
our part to make sure these offices are not filled by acclamation, and are voted in by a majority of the students. In
other words "DON'T BE A SLACKER!" TED LEE.
0N Friday January 25th Dr. W. G. Black closed the International Students's club Orientation series with a re-
;mark6bly profound observation to the effect that there is a
difference between toleration and acceptance.
The trouble with us Canadians (to plagerize a prominent
American) is that we tolerate, we seldom accept*. And who are
We that our -position calls for toleration of others.
After all, without the others, where would Canada Be?
The Indians were here first, the French started the movement
west, and the Chinese the Slavs, Scandinavians, and Chinese
built the railroads: this is Canada.
The English brought tea anjl finance, the Americans, enterprise. Without this mixture there could be no Canada, and we
thank Dr. Black for his dhort and pertinent reminder.
Death Dance
DECADENCE is claimed to be the cause of pessimism.
The widespread social pessimism prevailing today does
not spring from decadence. Nor does it spring as the Marxian
theorists suggest, from the decay of, Western man and the
failure of the democratic fiber. If men have revealed new and
unexpected sadism, they have also revealed new and unexpected heroism. ,
Least of all should we project our sense of bewilderment
and failure into a conviction of original evil. We disbelieve
as much in original evil and man's inherent brutality as we
do in original good and man's inherent perfectibility. There is
a little bit of the fascist in every one of us, and good deal in
some of us. But we must learn to distinguish between the
innately brutal in the human animal, the institutionally tenacious, and the historically reactionary.
Of the innately brutal we can know little, except that even
when most of it is channeled and sublimated there is still an
uncomfortable deposit left. Of the institutionally tenacious in
us, we know the immense force of habit patterns such as are
involved in the emotions and ideologies clustering about property and profits and what brutal energies may be released
when those habits are uprooted. Of the historically reactionary
we can only say, that the direction of political emotions at
some historical moment tell us more about the quality of our
institutions than it does about our original nature.
Civilization today is a death dance because of the accumulated weight of confused ideologies. Our task is the heoric one
of changing and directing those ideas so that their "weight will
support us, instead of crushing us.
Man's political life, like nature, is spendthrift of its energies; there is a vast deal of ruin in it before *t goes wholly to
ruin. But the price of survival is militancy and social intelligence. These alone can shape ideologies.   ...

The llbyssey ibis week boa presented a cartoon iUuetrafring our
student -exobaage eefceme which ls^,
oi>en to Interpretation that the previous attttwde bad been hynporiti-
oal, aad a false veneer.
■For those who think that this
cartoon waa flunny, irude or 4n bad
taste, we wish to supply an informative analysis.
What do we mean by "ex-
cbas*e?" TMi word implies the
mutual trans* er of eejad values. Or*
this 'beats we era distressed to find
that *he Cartoonist apparently bas
such a low opinion of tiie exchange]
vahie of a Canadian student. However, It ^'also possible thait the
cartoonist had in mind doctrines of
so called "superior races." 1} this
should be true, we wish to remind 'him that the "Deutschland
uber alles" theory and other similar ideas halve repeatedly been
failures in history.
Of course, he did not want to
humiliate the foreign students. If,
- however, '-this was his intent, he
should carry It through to a conclusion by proposing tbe ending of
the exchange scheme aad the termination of the policy of bringing
foreign students to this university.
That would be the logical extension of such a barbaric attitude.
'Does the cartoonist think that
when the Student tody voted for
the Exchange Scholarship Scheme,
it was only to show people of other nations—and also ourselves—
bow we wish to oreate better relationships by -demonstrating res
pect t^ foreigners to whom we
give equal moral and social chances, or does he think that this Is
all false protense—"negative prejudice?''
When tbe native groups on the
campus Insult each other, there
Is an equality of opportunity to
retaliate. However, whatever the
intention of the cartoonist, we
must draw to his attention the fact
that many of the foreign students
are unaible to take part ln such
exchanges, due to language difficulties aud to their peculiar position in our university life.
If we were diplomats, we should
use the harshest expression allowed by International protocol—"We
are very much surprised." We are,
onlly straightforward, unpolished
students and so we can say, "Mr.
Editor, we are disgusted."

During the remainder of the year
she was the key figure in the organization of the Big and Uttle

other admirable attributes convince me that Kay is the right

Birds Storm Back To
Gain Tie With Hawks
It often takes many different incidents fo win a hockey
game, and Wednesday's game between the UBC Thunderbirds
and the B.C. Electric White Hawks included them all. In a game
that ended in a 7-7 tie were two misconduct penalties, eigh'.
minor penalties, and a dandy brawl With but six seconds remaining in the game.
it was apparent in the opening
period, to the 100 or go fans present, that the Thunderbirds were
playing on their reputation and not
on their hockey ability. All season
the Birds have had no trouble defeating every team in the league
except the BNiB Indians, and the.
haphazard manner ln which they
played during the first two periods
did not do them any credit.
BjC. Electric raipped In three
quick goals without a l*fply from
the students, and even enough the
consensus of opinion around the
rink was that Lady Luck was on
the side of the transit boys, they
still scored goals that counted.
Richer Gets First Goal
Rudy "Shoulders" Richer finally
tallied for the Birds, and before
the period ended each team scored
one more goal. It was much the
same story in the middle session.
Thunderbirds seemed to be trying
hard enough but there was something missing.   ,
Between the second and third
periods, Coach Wagner put
some,, fire into the team, and the
similarity between the team that
started the game and the one that
played in the third period was Just
Thunderbirds   started  from   tha
first whistle to go, and they did
not let up until they bad scored
four goals in succession to lead
7-6. At this juncture, the B.C Electric boys decided to do or die and
by reason of persistent attempts
they tied the score with a minute
to go. •
With half a minute to go in the
gafae, White Hawks received a
penalty. Birds' power play went
Into effect and then the fun began.
Ted Smart of the Hawks prevented
Hass Young from scoring the winning 'goal by falling In front of
Haas and clipping him on the cheek
with his stick.
Haas Seeks Bloody Revenge
Hass saw red and proceeded to
square oft with thd Hawk player.
A couple of other fights rtarted,
and when two B.C. Electric players
tried to back Al Hood into a corner, off the bench came Rudy Richer
to handle the situation. But it all
ended in two minor penalties and
a misconduct to rtudy for stepping
on the Ice.
Don Anderson played a steady
game iu the Birds net alter his
month and a half illness. He kicked
out shot after shot when the Hawks
were pressing, and even though
seven got past him, the score could
have .been much greater.
Jim Todd and Haas Young scored two each, and Rodger Stanton,
Rudy Richer and Lome Irwin were
the other marksmen. Ted Smart
and Gordie Bremner scored five
goals between them for the White
Next Wednesday the Thunderbirds play the Burnaby Beavers
starting at 7:45 p.m. ln the last
scheduled game of the season.
