International House
Plans Not Changed
University officials emphatically deny that they are "play*
ing favorites" with the fraternities at the expense of the Inter*
national House plan. -
In a statement to 'a Ubyssey correspondent Dr. Mackenzie,
denied spending "thousands of dollars" of University fundi
to renovate the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house at Acadia
camp. - -
Dr. Gordon Shrum, Chairman ot&-
the   buildings   and  ground*   committee,  in   a  letter  to  Dr.   Mac-|
kenzle sitated that "$150 was spent
to repair the hut which the Lambda Chl's are renting this year
and to remove, a partition in the
front hall. The cost of re-stuycoing
wc*s covered by a 10 dollar Increase
in the monthly rent."
A circular sent to members of
the fraternity had said that lt had
"taken a year's lease on Hut 42.
Dr. Schrum has co-operated mar-
velously and has spent several
thousand dollars renovating the
hut  for our occupancy."
Only, the certainty that there
would be a large number of vacancies at Acadia, because of the opening of the women's residences, Dr.
MacKenzie explained, caused the
university administration to let
the fraternity rent the house.  "*
"Any group of students that will
organise itself ln the same way as
the fraternity is quite welcome to
a hut,'* he asserted. 'And t think
I can say that the same repairs
will be made for them.'
Mr. Andrew, executive assistant
to the president, also denied thai
any unwarranted financial aid to
fraternities had been given by the
'As far' as the International
House scheme goes,' he said, "we
are completely in favor of It. However, the International House com*
mittee has made no request for financial aid from thc university."
Little Money Spent-Admin
At -12:110 p.m.. frosh mon had gathered on the main mall, and a
small group of hardy engineers
were in front of the old Applied
Science building.
The two groups met at the lily
pond and doused each other. Rumour has It that two engineers
were ducked to every freshman,
but perhaps that was because the
frosh somewhat outnumbered the
red-shirted gallants.
Also at noon, the freshettes battled the nurses tn a* football game
policed by the burly engineers.
Both teams wisely came equipped
with first aid.
Final score of the rough and
tumble game was six all.
The plays were characterized by
a definite lack of regulation rules,
but with training, observers suggested the girls would be an asset
to the Thunderbirds.
Freshettes who didn't play football nonetheless wound up with
slightly bruised'dignities. A group
of them were seen unwillingly
singing Oodlva for a surrounding
force of insistent engineers.
A spokesman for the Lamda Chl's
admitted that the University had
paid for the renovations done to
the fraternity house during the
summer, but added that the administration hod rented It to them on
condition that they guarantee rent
for 12 months, instead of the more
usual eight.
.■•^ie-was uncertain as to whether
the University would confer similar benefits on any group who
could put up the 12 month's rent
guarantee. '
The 10-room ex-president's house
Is also occupied by another fraternity, Beta Theta PI. but Mr. Andrew has explained that the rents
there are high and that if the International House had wanted it,
it was open to them.
However, since there are about
300 students in the International
House scheme the house waa as
good as unless for their needs.
Miss Brigltta Balls, public relations officer for the International
House committee, stressed that It
has not asked for monetary aid
from the university. ■>
"We do not wish to ask favota,"
ine'tWav -' "Utiffl "#e' * fityrliifilr
to university students that we Will
accomplish something."
At present, International House
uses Acadia Camp as a centre for
social events and discussions. Asked as to whether the fraternity
house made any difference to them,
"We hivve no grudges against the
university or the fraternity: we
would have liked to know about lt,
(the Lamba Chi house) that is all."
she said.
Acadia Enrollments Down
Two years ugo, when the idea
of an International House with
half foreign and half Canadian
students was started the administration offered to fix up two huts
for the project, but there were
insufficient number of interested
students.  The  idea  was  dropped.
About 18 months ago the present setup, using Acadia House as
a social centre, was put into effect and has proved satisfactory
ever since.
As   Mr.  Andrew  said,  "Foreign
students  prefer to be assimilated
into the life here rather than hold
| themselves    aloof    as    an    alien
Future plans, according to Miss
Balla, are nebulous. It is conceivable that something may be done
i« not prepared to say what.
The purpose of the International
House, according to Raghblr Baal,"
chairman of the International
House Committee, is to "promote
International brotherhood and understanding and to bring alwut
an itnerchange and appreciation ot
different national ideas."
International House at UBC
dates from 1949, when the first com
mittee wa*s set up to study the
project under the chairmanship ot
Peter Steckl.
Acadia Camp was suggested as
the temporary site of the house
and, encouraged and supported ' y
thc administration, the committee
was able to announce that Acttdta
Camp would function as an Inter-
national   House   from   September.

Headaches On The Horizon
The administration has launched a complicated experiment at Acadia Camp which
may leave them swallowing limrrels of aspirin
tablets for years to come.
It all started when Pres.  MacKenzie's
• old quarters were put up for rent this summer.
One of the applicants was a fraternity
called "Beta Theta Pi" and the housing administration agreed to let them have it for
$90 a month providing they took it on a
year's leaae.
It wasn't long until other fraternities deckled it would be a fine spot for their communal quarters and a second fraternity,
"Lambda Chi Alpha," talked the administration into fixing up a deserted hut for them.
Administration put in an oil furnace,
refinished all the rooms, built in a common
room and kitchen, and put siding and stucco
on the building.
Pres. MacKenzie and Dr. Shrum say the
administration spent only $150 "plus cost ol
outaide finishing" and that they added "$10
a month rent" for the work.
A circular distributed by the fraternity
says the administration spent "thousands of
dollars'' on the work to which Dr. MacKemie  replied  "eyewash"   or more  polite
words to the same effect.
All we would say is that It will take a
long, long time to pay off the cost of an oil
.urnace and rebuilding the hut.
That, however, ia the administration's
What does interest us is Prea. MacKenzie's promise that "any other group" can
have the same priveleges.
The administration is going to have to
find a sizeable chunk of money if many
groups apply. .   f ftfj
What's mora, we understood mat Acadia
Camp was earmarked for an International
House and if many groups take up tha administration's offer there won't be much
Acadia left.
We would like to know whether or not
the administration is prepared to find a new
spot for International House.
The International House Committee, as
its chairman says, has never applied fo? any
financial assistance,' but it would like to see
enough of Acadia left to carry its experiment
through to the finish.
The administration promised its support
to the scheme! It should be prepared to fulfill
the promise.
UBC's Financial Troubles
AMS President Vaughn Lyon has called
upon tiie administration to withdraw its $30
fee increase imposed this year.
Mr. Lyon maintains that the university,
which has been granted half a million dollars by the federal government, can well afford to forgo the $150,000 it will gain by the
Students, he points out, are being press-
ed harder and harder by the spiraling cost-
It has become extremely difficult to make
enough money during the five month summer to provide fees, books, food, shelter,
clothes, and a little entertainment during the
seven month university year.
President N. A. M. MacKenzie on the
other hand, explains that fees have jumped
from $175 to $236 (for an arts course and
proportionately for other courses) since 1939
—a period in which the general living cost
has just about doubled.
He is sympathetic to students and their
problems but he feels that the steeply rising costs of staff, supplies, maihtainance, and
building necessitate the increase.
One cannot help feeling that both sides
are, in a sense, right and that the only solution is an increased grant from the provincial government.
UBC has been getting an ever-smaller
proportion of the provincial budget. It is true,
of course, that the B.C. government is saddled with expenses of a sort which it has never
before had to bear.
But general and special taxes have filled
up the public treasury to the point where
the government is better off than ever before.
The federal government his a surplus so
big that Mr. Abbott is embarrassed by the
whole thing.
Students and the administration should
get together in a fight for bigger grants.

Dangerous Advertising
The advertisement published by the RCAF
Reserve University Flight in Tuesday's
Ubyssey is an example of a type of jingoism
which ought to have passed from vogue with
the end of the ninetenth century.
"Canada," it says, "admits no superiors
in the air!"
It urges students lo enroll in the campus division of the air force because 'the
training of university men is a prime factor
in maintaining our place in the forefront
of the world of flight."
Just why Canada should want to "admit
no superiors in the air" the ad doesn't say.
Presumably, the drafters of the ad copy
feel that Canada will be safe only so long as
she possess more planes, manned by more
men, and carrying more guns than whatever
country she (ears may attack her.
The claim that Canada is superior in the
air is, of course, nonsense. The U.S., the
U.K., the USSR, and porbably- several other
nations all have larger airforces, more commercial planes, more trained men, and have,
to all intents and purposes, contributed more
to the history of aviation. '
That, however, is hardly the point.
The type of emotionalism and exaggerated nationalism contained in the ad is, Unhappily, rampant throughout the world.
It leads, of course, to armaments races
generated mostly because only one nation
can be on top at any one time and all its
rivals are determined to excell it.
Armaments races, of course, lead only
to wars. If we must have defence, it will
have to be based on a philosophy far dfifer-
enl from that expressed by the RCAF unless
our aim is World War Three.
When my tost employers dis
covered I was a member ot the
Publication Board at UBC, the editor of the BCHIS office magazine,
HTA, sidled up to me and aeked, in
honeyed tones, if I would contribute something to their paper.
Whenever this happens I panic. Inspiration withers like new buds
under late spring frost.
"But what shall I write about,"
answered a small, faraway voice,
which I identified as my own.
"Surely," wheedled the editor,
"as a reporter for a campus rag
you were trained to be on the alert
for all sorts of a>ngles."
I nodded,, not bothering to explain that my first winter on the
Ubyssey was spent ln the Circulation Department, where I stood
every afternoon with my tongue ex-
tended while the circulation manager wet stamps on it.
"Write about your job here, lt
you can't think of anything else,"
the editor continued engagingly.
"My job," I said in an effort of
recollection. "Job. Oh! yes! My
Job!" Suddenly I laughed diabolically.
"You'll have that story at the
crack of 9:30 tomorrow morning,
nil* if I have to sit up all night to
write it*'' Gad—what a story. My
Job. Funny that I hadn't considered
Its tremendous thought-provoking
possibilities before this.
That night I sat late at my typewriter, in a haze of smoke. A
naked electric lamp burned over
my head. A cigarette dangled from
my lips. A bottle of beer rocked on
the table from the agitated movements of the typewriter. I wrote.
The next morning I was so excited that I got to work Vk minutes eariy. I took my story to the
editor. He eyed my haggered expression, my red eyes.
"You didn't need to knock yourself out over lt," he said, "The
deadline isn't for three weoks"
"Oh!" I cried breathlessly, "Inspiration   overtakes   m,e   at   times
with frightening force. Nothing cun
stop me!  I must write!"
"I see."
Ho seemed to like my story.
Three weeks later the next Issue
of HIA appeared. I waited expectantly for the acclamation of my
t'ellow-employees. When no one
rushed up after five minutes to
pump my lyuul r,nd exclaim at my
genius, I grabbed my copy and scanned every page.
My story wasn't there.
I strode into the editor's office
and  demanded an explanation.
"Oh, yes. Your story." He drawled In his best Victorian British.
"Seems some of the brass thought
it might stir up revolt amohgst the
"I realisse It's pretty powerful
stuff," I simpered, "fcut I think It's
an accurate picture, from the point
of view of the second assistant to
a junior clerk's helper."
Then I leaned forewartl earnestly. "I want to reach the Little
People. They live and breathe just
as you do, you know."
Arguing did no good, but I resolved then that I'd get my story
In print. I owed it to the Little
People. So here It Is—Just a simple little story of a simple little
job, simply told. I meant no mallne.
Any junior file clerk in any offico
might agree with rue, especially ol
a   Friday  afternoon.
A few days ago we dropped
into Exemptions to see that
adolescent wonder who last
year actioned H1A.9 forms
left-handed at the rate of 300

adding machine and dictating
letters simultaneously to a
harassed stenographer.
What a transformation we
witnessed; That magnificent
brain has degenerated to a
lump of suet—-tho/e eyes, so
keen a few months ago, register vacancy.
"Well! So you're running Exemptions now!" we remarked
ln indulgent tones.
She nodded.
"What do you do?" we asked.
She beamed, "I file cards—

across the bland face. She
We tried again. "Do you do
anything else?"
She nodded.
"I   count  cards."
(Her boss confided to us
later tbbt Miss Churchill has to

tens only, as office etiquette
forbids her removing her shoes
and stockings at her desk. "But
she's a steady worker," he
"Do you have any decisions
to make?" we persisted.
"De-clsh-uns, de'clshuns ..."
she muttered, pronouncing the
word slowly to herself.
"You know, take anything in
your own hands."
StfBden comprehension almost overwhelmed her. "Oh
yes—" she said excitedly, opening a drawer and pointing to
her tea cup.
"No no—do you decide anything?"
She* brhjhtened and replied
that It was sometime* herd te

or tea in the afternoon.
We left her then, chattering
to herself while Idly cutting

attendants, who will be the other
two finalists, will also receive

of coed  beauties.
The queen candidates will wear
formal attire at the annual ball, and
will each be escorted by two stalwarts of Lambda Chi.

Roam Campus
Statistics just out explain tho
reason for the new predominajee
of blue and gold freshman beanies
around the campus.
Registrar's office figures reveal
that every fifth student seen on
the campus is a freshman. UBC:
has a total enrolment of more than
fifty-five hundred so far this year,
and of these, better than eleven
hundred are starry-eyed freshmen.
For tiie other faculties, we face
even more engineers this year,
since the percentage is up slightly
over last, year, and, resultantly, the
rest are down  in  number.

NFCUS Meeting Hears
Of IUS Policy Change
(From the Manitoban)
Jean de Margerie of Laval University was elected president
of the National Federation of Canadian University Students
at the organization's annual conference in London, Ont. this
Why, do you know that one
third year veteran showed how
obliging he could be by directing
a group of freshettes to 'the building beside the old gym.' The only
fly ln the ointment was that the
girls luwl asked where the Physics
building was!
Anyone trying to get into the Arts-
building at noon on Tuesday just
didn't have a chance. There lined
up in a double row, was a welcoming committee of those delightful organisms known as engineers.
The freshettes returning from
the WUS-WAA talks In Arts 100
were required to doff their caps
to smile sweetly at this reception
Une before being allowed to lewve
the building.
The latest levy in hit songs was
being launched in the cafeteria
the other day. The only thing was
that, although the four freshettes
doing the honors to 'Hail UBC did
very well, they could have done
much better if their audience of
upperclassmen hadn't manipulated
those rulers so readily.
It seems as if the slower seniors
just haven't got what it t&kes to
stance the case of one engineer
impress a freshette. Take for in-
who found one gal not so easy to
get along with. Abigail Floordown
it seems has already got her eye
on a freshman. When he asked
what the freshman had that he
hadn't, the engineer received the
jolting reply, "At' least HE'S not
an engineer."
I can warn all freshettes to wear
their regalia and observe the rules
ot Frosh Week. I overheard a
group of upper-class women conspiring to decide which shampoo
to use at the Blg-Llttle Sister banquet,. So remember—where you go,
so does the hat and button.
As I said before, though, these
upperclass men are doing their
best to help us. After all, maybe
that third year man didn't know
where the Physics building was.

Principal attention was given to
a report on the Warsaw meeting
of the Communist-dominated International Union of Students by
Denis Lazure of Montreal. According to Lazure, IUS had "experienced a change of heart" and was
anxious to have the western student groups reconsider their last
year's withdrawals.
Some doubt was raised as to
lUS's sincerity but it was decided that NFCUS would send a delegate to a meeting this winter to
attempt a reconciliation between
the organizations.
Delegates went on record again
as favoring federal aid to higher
education and increased scholarships similar to the NFCUS regional   scholarships    fell    through.

Bird Pucksters Face Tough
Our Pacific Cost Senior B championship
UBC Thunderbirds hockey team, one of the perennial trophy winning teams one the campus, is
tills season beginning one of its toughest competitive grinds.
With the opening of the Vancouver Commercial Hookey League only u few short weeks away
the 'Birds are taking stock of all the available
players for this year's prospective squad.
After losing five of last year's outstanding
players, all big block winners, hopes for u strong
team grow slightly dim.
But the ever-present atmosphere of do-or-dle,
wln-or-else opUmism which has always pervaded
the surroundings wherever Bird hockey players
■gather received a welcome Jolt in the arm when
Harrison (Hass) Young and Stewart (Stu) Bailey
signified their Intentions of returning for another
Young and Bailey finished second and third
in the scoring race last season and they were
two of the main reasons for our successful season. Outside of the fact that I passed all my
eXams last term their return heralds much cause
for rejoicing.
One of the reasons for the long face on the
Birds manager ls the graduation of one of West-
em Canada's finest goal-tenders. Don Adams has
been with UBC for the past three years and
while he guarded the nets practically all the rest
of the team had to do was score. Don played
magnlflcally for three seasons and his position
will be hard to fill.
No less tragic is the loss of two of our hardhitting, ever-reliable defencemen Ken Hodgert
and Paul Kavanagh, along with hustling left-
winger Bob Lindsay and high-scoring ace Clarke
Drake. These four players helped form the background of last year's championship squad.
*r *r *r
But even the Bird's olouds may have a silver
lining with the return ef seme veteran players.
Last year's outstanding rookie Al Hood, who picked up a knee Injury during the finals Is back and
. raring to go. 80 also is Mel Hughes, our hardworking dsfsneemSn. Al brought down a oouple
of plsysrs from Nelson with him who will be
welcome, as wilt a former Trail Juniors star who
Is attsnding our acadsmy. Returning playsrs Ken
Hole, Rogers 6tantan and Mac Carpenter, all of
whom turned in hard-playing performances last
season, will also be welcomed.
Thunderbirds have a full schedule in store
this season that will provide plenty of opportunity for students to see their team in action.
Our entry in the Vancouver Commercial Hockey
League will ensure a steady schedule of games
and the proposed two game exhibition series
with University of Alberta here in town makes a
lively series of home games.
Two years ago UBC travelled down to Denver University and Colorado Springs College in
Colorado winning a four game exhibition series
against these college teams, At that time Colorado Springs was the champion United States
college team. Again this season Birds will travel to Colorado and play the same two teams.
These two universities have a roster of players
largely made up of Canadians who will certainly provide plenty of stiff conmpetitlon. The
proposed series will take place the end of February.
Here at home this year's Vancouver Com-
mei'clal Hockey League consists of five teams.
This is a two team drop from last year and fore
tells added strength for the remaining teams.'
Thunderbirds will have their hands full playing
in this company which forecasts a lively season:
First game for the Birds will be on Wednesday,
October 24, at the Forum. The schedule consists
of 12 games before the finals beginning in February.   The   Birds   will   need   all   the   player
and spectator support they can obtain. '-,
' ,•''''
However, a team Is only as good as the play*
ers who form It and a big wsleome Is sxtsncM
to all students who would like to corns out iir
the Bird's hockey team. Ws are In nssd of for*
wards, defencemen and a goal-lender.
UBC Thunderbirds have always been knnjrn
to be, fast, hard-checking, aggressive hockey team
and for the last five years they hav« always weft
two games for every loss or tie. A good team
can only function through the support of it*
members and with the full year planned during
the 1951-62 season, league games, exhibition
games and away games many new active play*
ers are needed. r
Anyone Interested In turning out for this sea*
sou Thunderbird hockey team should come to our
organizational meeting it Arts 106 on Friday, Bt/O*

tough at Caldwell, Idaho Saturday night and bowed to the
larger and more powerful of
Idaho   Coyotes.   230.
The Whitman orfense could
only sputter Instead of roll because Coyote linemen and linebackers continually broke through to nail Malge and Blue ball
packers before they could get
Defensively, the Missions
showed an erratic spark. Center Bill FVwler, Walla Walla,
proved himself a man to be
reckoned with, as he made one
tackle after another In the
center of the line from his
ba«ker-up position. He was the
backbone of the Whitman defense which shone on occasion.
UBC Thundtrbirds open their home 1951 FootbaU season,
a-t 2:15, Satui^ipjllternobn against a proven Carroll College
Football team jftom Helena, Montana. They are hoping, not
onjy for the first victory of the season but to prove that last
Saturday night's defeat to the strong Vikings of Western Washington College by the score of 40 to 7 is no criterion as to what
the remaining portion of the season holds for the gallant "Birds."
"We expect to be on new*
er even terms with this
club than we were with
the Vikings. I am sure defensively we will show a
marked Improvement especially in the pass defense
department," Coach Jelly
Andersen, of the Thunder*
birds said today.
Unfortunately there is only one
way to decide a victory tnd that
is on the score board.. It so happens that the Thunderbirds did
fairly well in the statistics column,
considering that their pass defence collapsed In the second half
of the ball gf.me.
In fact according to Coach Lappenbusch of the Vikings, the boys
from B.C. proved that there were
flaws in his pet defense and that
a plus yardage wus more than obvious.
Last Saturday night, Curroll
College proved themselve victor!
ous on the score board and defeased Westminster College In Salt
Lake City, 7 to 2.
The statistics however, were lopsided in the opposite way with the
"Saints" of Carroll College making only two first downs and netting 20 yards rushing as against
Westminster's 14 first downs and
a net yardage gain of 2'!1 from the
line of scrimmage,
In  the  forward  passing  department of the Saints showed  a bit
of  superiority   and   picked   up   58
yards to Westminster's total of 7.
Carroil College will arrive
Saturday morning and even
though ths travelling squad
will only number 27, Saints
Coach, John Qagliardi hopes
to continue using a platoon
system on defense and offense.
According to Coach Gagli-
ardi the Saints will run from
either the "T" formation or
the single wing, or a combination of both In accordance
with the material on hand and
what is physically available.
