Money flew freely at Monday's i
election speeches as candidates
for AMS Treasurer, First Member-at-Large,   WAA,  WUS, and
MAA directors promised everything  from   tree  spectacles  to
water-filled drinking  fountains.
Bill Esselmont, first candidate
for  treasurer,   urged  that  next)
year's   council   extend   the   Ac- i
cident Benefit Fund to include!
broken eye-glasses and ski acei j
dents. He said he would continue
this year's  policy  in  regard  to.
Alma  Mater Funds.
Al Thackray, second candi-;
date, pointed out that the trens-i

of over half a million dollars, j
He said that with the new office
system in force next year, coun-,
cilors should have more time!
to devote to more important ac-j
tivities than the menial Jobs
concerning them at present.
In answer to the question of
what they intended to do with
this year's surplus, the candi-
dates for treasurer explained i
that the budget always allowed
for a five per cent reserve. Most
of this has already been alloted
to improvement of club huts behind the Brock.

Gargrave - Grauer mephisto
The squabble between Tony Gargrave, CCF MLA for
MacKenzie and the B. C. Electric is really quite humorous.
Mr. Gargrave stood up in the House last week and accused the
B. C. Electric of providing a large campaign fund for the Social
Credit party. Premier Bennett merely tush-tushed Mr. Gar-
grave's ridiculous suggestion and Dal Grauer, President of
the BCER, had some unkind words to say about Mr. Gar-
grave's "irresponsible suggestions."
The funniest part of the whole controversy is the Liberal's
indignation at the large contributions Social Credit is receiving
from private industry. To hear the Liberal's tell it campaign
contributions came into being when Social Credit came into
Large financial gifts from industry to the party-in-power
are part and parcel of our democratic system of government.
Members of opposition parties who express shocked indignation
at such going-on are stupid hypocrites who have an inconceivably low estimation of the public's intelligence. Businessmen who indignantly deny such contributions fall into the
same category.
The biggest businessmen in Canada today are the federal
and provincial governments. And with each passing year our
governments delve deeper into fields formerly occupied by
private industry. And if one businessman wants something
from another busnessman he goes out of his way to be nice
to him—he takes him to lunch, or has him to his house for dinner or sends him a bottle of whiskey at Christmas.
And so it is with private business and government, or to
be more correct, private business and public business. Political
parties must have money for campaigns and private business
must have government contracts or other favors. It's the old
"you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours," routine. It's not
new and it's not shocking and it's nothing to get excited about.
First Door on Your Right, Kid!
So the Editor is worried because Tiki Graham only polled
405 votes in the election for the USC member. Does he think
things are dull around here? Let it be known, that lovable
animal was lucky to misrepresent himself to the tune of five
votes, let alone the other four hundred. Why, the UBC campus is stagnant enough that Lady Godiva would only draw
a round of polite applause from the Engineers if she rode
down the Main Mall. 4

The Ubyssey:
Dear Sir:
Friday's report that the Liberals carried the Mock Parliament was extremely misleading. The Liberal B:li to reorganize the Electoral System
was uncontroversial and extremely routine. Everything
which they suggested is already
being carried out by the Registrar of Voters. The only thing
new was the elimination of
two member constituencies created during the last Socred
gerrymandering. For such a
proposal it is little wonder
that the Liberals received the
support of all the opposition
parties except the- Socreds.
What was so remarkable about
Yours truly.

Frankly the situation is desperate. The Gordon Commission is examining Canada's economic future, the Sloan Commission is examining H. R.
MacMillan's future, it is about
time somebody examined UBC
students' mental future. The
possibility that knitting bees
will replace faculty stags, tea
dances replace Commodore
bashes and harmonica concerts
replace fraternity house orgies
(I refer you to TAB) is becoming more and more frightening.
Take for instance the Engineer's smoker. At least eight
percent of the crowd went
home sober, only a couple of
light-hearted participants tangled with the law and the star
performer retained a ridiculous
level of decency to the extent
of wearing clothes. What's
more, after having Freshmen
drowning privileges in the Library lily pond withdrawn, that
once feared faculty discouraged its new members with its
so-called stag and failed to
evoke fresh spirit for future
riots,   kidnappings,   or  pillage.
But why pick on the Engineers? What about the Law
students? Traditionally a jolly
lot in Britain, the UBC counterparts resemble undertakers
who have been told that a
Fountain of Youtli exists. The
Nurses played a brave game
of football and the Aggies have
shown a little commendable
originality but the newly-
formed Arts stjdents have disappointed everybody. Why,
they even take Alade Akesode
Which  of  course   brings   me
to campus polities. Tiki aside,
only    Don    Jabour's    concave
smile  drew   anything   close   to
a chuckle in the recent election. Not one original or .startling issue was devised, not one
violent candidate had to be
restrained. With the usual
apathy on campus surely there
is room for a dictatorship (ben-:
evolent or otherwise) or at least:
a damn good attempt at setting
one up.
And if Council control isn't
of interest, surely a candidate |
for  election  could  advocate  a
campus pub, spittoons for the
caf,  or  a  funny-money  bonus;
for   all   graduates.   Well,   the |
only other event that comes up!
at the same time as the AMS'
elections is the voting for the
Mock   Parliament.    Even   the,

Besides being dull UBC students seem  to be getting pro-j

In interviews Monday, candidates for Treasurer, First Member-at-Large, WUS, president,

on the second slate has a particular job to carry out, and each
described different methods of
doing that job.

Esselmont explained that the ec* by the enlarged enrollment.
A student would work up
during four years. He also felt
that a plan whereby a student
were given a reduction in price
upon surrendering his A-card
from the previous year would
promote a greater sale of the
Athletic cards.
Toynbee hoped that MAA
would promote exhibition competition in all sports with other
Canadian Universities next year.
He emphasized that UBC give
more help to "minor sports" and
stimulate public interest in Athletics through better public relations.
Laurie, wondered if Radsoc
could be employed to advertise
all games over a loud-speaker
system in most buildings. "At
present," he said, "the Ubyssey
notices often come out too late
to stimulate interest in noon-
hour games."
Hudson suggested that any in-\
creases   in   the   athleic   budget
should  be put  into  "expansion '
Of facilities from which all students could benefit." i
Laurie condemned the present ,
gym facilities, pointing out that
baskets at the side of badminton and volley-ball courts reduced court space "more than
half" and were in the way of
spectators. He felt that a certain amount of money should
be alloted to acquiring baskets
On a swinging basis."
In answer to where effort
should be concentrated by the
MAA next year, all three candidates suggested means of giving
greater publicity to athletic
events. Hudson advocated the establishment of a "continuous
athletic publicity office" similar
to the present manager's set-up.
Men's sports on campus have
a towering effect, but candidates
for director of Women's Athletics felt that their job was just
as important. Said Char Warren,
present WA director and running for a second term, "the in-
tra-mural program enables more
girls to work together than any
other single activity on campus."
In view of this, Char advocated
a concentration of effort next
year on the intra-mural program, out of which is likely to
come winning extra-mural or
Varsity teams.
Opponent Bertha Whittle criticized the inactivity of the Women's Athletic Directorate over
the inadequacy of equipment.
"Tha Physical Education Department is now noticing and objecting to the drain on their
equipment" Berta added. She
felt that greater attention should
be given to the acquiring of para-
phanalia   for WAA  activities.
Both candidates for President
of the Women's Undergraduate
Society complained that WUS
"doesn't have enough to do,"
Lynda Gates suggested that
Council allot WUS "the handling of teas, queen contests, and
other volunteer work." In this
way, Lynda felt that WUS could
better reach the girls who don't
have too much to do already,
and bring WUS to more women
on the campus.
Sally Robertson quoted the
AMS constitution as saying that
; "WUS is in charge of Women's
j social functions." "Hardly specific," she added. "WUS should
! concentrate on  improving exist-
i ing common rooms and creating
new  ones,  for example  in the
! Library."
Sally disagreed with her op-
* ponet and with the other Women's candidates in the sports
field when she stated that WAD
and WUS should be better coordinated. She felt that WUS
could help WAD to encourage
women to enter intra - mural
The three candidates for First-
Member-at-large didn't quite see
eye-to-eye on what phase of
their job they felt to be the most
important next year.
! Brad Crawford and Kathy
Archibald named the "Homecoming Dance" number one of their
duties, but both .discovered new
ways of approaching the liquor
problem at the dance. Kathy
called the present attitude on
liquor at the dance "hyprocritic-
al" and stated that "it's an accepted fact that the majority of
students will be drinking, dry
Homecoming or not." She suggested that an attempt be made
to let these students drink in a
"civilized  manner."
Crawford came forth with the

dance off campus, perhaps at
Hotel Vancouver. He reasoned
"the ballroom and the accompanying lounge plus the banquet
hall would easily hold all the
revellers as well as the alum.
I think that Homecoming should
not be just a student dance, as
it always will be if continually
held on the campus.' '
Morris Huberman, third contestant in the second-slate running, took a different approach
to the question. He said the job
of first member-at-large "is to
act in liason between the Alumni Association and the AMS, and
to act in liason between the students and the Council." With this
idea. Morris felt that the Homecoming committee should work
in closer contact with the Faculty.
Candidates for positions of
Treasurer and First Member-at-
large had much to say about the
forthcoming Pacific Schools
President's Association Conference sponsored this year by
UBC. But when the opinions
were all sorted out, everyone
said essentially the same thing:
"it's good."
Al Thackray called the PSPA
"an outstanding and worthwhile
conference," Last year's conference, he noted, "resulted in tangible gains such as the Leadership Conference, New Accident
Benefit Fund, and ideas for the
planning and financing of the
new Brock Extension."
Bill Esselmont showed great
enthusiasm over the Leadership
Conference " a direct result
of PSPA" he said, "if PSPA can
continue to contribute such beneficial ideas to our campus, it is
a   worthwhile   organization."
Brad Crawford, at present
working on the conference committee, felt that PSPA "is bound
to benefit all the schools involved, and is very good publicity for UBC." Morris Huberman and Kathy Archibald
agreed, saying that, the Conference will be a "valuable experience to UBC
Elections   Wednesday
For 1956-57 Council
UBC students go to the polls
for the second week in succession Wednesday, voting for next
year's AMS Treasurer, Presidents of Men's and Women's Athletic Associations and Women's
Undergraduate President.
A total of 12 candidates are
contesting these five* positions
with a bewildering combined set
of qualifications. In order that
students may be aided in selecting the most suitable people the
Ubyssey presents below an exact
account of the duties each position requires both according to
the AMS constitution and to the
present incumbents.
The AMS Treasurer must prepare the budget of the Society,
be responsible for all money received, render monthly statements and obtain financial reports for each AMS Society activity and function—this according to the Constitution.
According to Geoff Conway,
this year's incumbent, the Treasurer has more set duties than
anyone else on Council. In ad-
dition to those already listed,
Geoff reports the Treasurer must
also supervise the 4-person business office and handle the insurance contracts. ,
As if this wasn't enough the
Treasurer must draw up the
contracts for the publication!
board and for photography. He
must investigate all capital expenditure which may range from
$10 for a new photo ventilator
to $350,000 for the new Brock
The Treasurer is the chairman
of the Accident and Benefit
committee and must handle the
administration of the new plan.
He must chair the new Finance
Committee and guide their work
on all AMS projects. He is one
of the three student representatives on M.A.C. and helps guide
men's Athletic policies.
Very Busy Man
With the President the Treasurer usually goes to all student-
Faculty meetings as these are
j generally concerned with finance. The Treasurer is also a
member of the Buildings and
I Grounds Committee and as a re-
I gular Council member sits on
the College Shop and the Student Facilities Committees.
All this requires a lot of time,
"at least 20-30 hours a week,"
to quote Mr. Conway and "in
addition," he added, "the new
Treasurer must spend at least
one month of the summer in
the AMS office familiarizing
himself with his future duties."
An ideal Treasurer would
have both experience and a fair
amount of common sense, Geoff
thought. The former need not
be in Commerce but more so
in AMS functions and in "knowing what's going on and what
clubs need how much to operate."
Women's Undergraduate Societies President is in charge of
all co-ed social activities, runs
the Constitution. Maureen San-
key, this year's W.U.S. President
amplifies this by adding that she
"must represent women on Council."
As a Council member she sits
on the Student Facilities and
Brock Extension Committees
plus any other ones that may
come up during the year. As
WUS president she presides over
its weekly meetings that plan
such women's activities as the
Big and Little Sister Banquet,
the special career lectures and
the co-ed dance.
All this takes up around 13
hours a week, said Maureen and
the ideal WUS President should
be "someone who can get along
with people," she felt. "She must
have executive ability to organ*
ize these events and it would
help if she had been a member
of different clubs and knew

"All of which keeps him hopping," remarks Bob McLean, this

The Huskies amassed a total

the Varsity splashers trailed

U.B.C, taking top spot in the

Varsity soccer team with its
impressive winning streak is due
to fall flat on its face unless
some of the players begin to;
take the game a little more seriously. Arriving at games consistently late with no apparent
reason is not the kind of attitude that  wins games
There is also the question of'
whether such players would be j
desirable  ambassadors  of UBC,
as they will be on the proposed
California tour. Being a winning
player   is   not   everything.

We don't have much sympathy
with the second guessers who
blamed the Friday night basketball loss to Whitworth on Jack
Pomfret and his strategy of resting some of his starters in the
second  quarter.
They   have  had  little
for most of the season when Pomfret   has   frequently   done   the
same thing—with satisfactory results.
There is no reason to look
for an excuse in the losses to
the Pirates. It was simply a matter of a fifth place squad run-
jning into a second place one,
with just that much difference
between the two teams.

had to come from behind to beat South Hill Athletics 6-3

The Birds ran away with the
game with three late second
half goals. Phil Ney scored the
winning goal and followed it
with another in his most impressive outing of the season. Fred

minutes  later.
For Varsity the outstanding
players were captain Bus Fred-
