Council In Camera
Council meetings are supposed to be open to the student
bjody. They are entitled to knbw what their government is
jiolng or not doing in their behalf. Every other Council has
alWys resj)6cted tHe right of students to sit in on meetings
aild rtilhy Hfive eveh ericduraged this.
The new Council is creating a dangerous precedent.
A precedent that we .would like to see done away with right
ijow. Obey don't exclude persons from their meetings, they
sllriply go into "committee of the whole1' whenever anything
controversial comes up for discussion.
ThU means tlifct all rion-councillors must leave the
Cpiilrtil chamber. It means that ndhe of the proceedings that
go on while ihey are in committee of the whole can be re-
petted to the student body as all student councillors are sworn
td secrecy.
Students are entitled to know both What councillors are
{toirfg ahd the reasons that they give for doing or not doing
any, particular thing.
If t&e douncil wishes to retain the respect of the students
iiwy had better get rid of this insidious habit of conducting
student business in secret.
e Forgotten   Army
"*~" The Massey Report's recommendation that a National
Scholarship and Bursary Plan be established has so far
been ignored.
Instead, through the Department of National Defense, a
different scheme is offered—orie with'strings attached. The
Armed Service will pay your way through university pro-
videcl that you remain in the army for a certain period
following your graduation.
Some of us don't relish this type of bargain. We think
'thtrt those who intend to use their university education for
something more than raising the intelligence level of the
Canadian army are as entitled to aid from the Federal
Government as those who choose the military for a career.
Possibly, though, the government realizes that should
their generous offer be extended to those going into non-
.  -fttlllHry "professions, the university campus would not prove
■ to be such a fertile recruiting ground for future officers.
Wnen the government  realizes  that  it is  extremely
.  important for the future well-being of the country to assist
ih iHfe education of professional groups other than the mili-
•   tary, then we can expect the recommendations of the Massey ComVHlssibn to be implemented.
Rbyal Commission

M$toyal Commission" to study the way AMS, funds are being
Spent, tte wants to know, as we do, whether the money which
is doled out annually is being put to the best use.

bfc expected to conduct this investigation himself.
1 Hftlifts.hot the time to make a complete investigation and
Ml$id<jiii6ri he, as an elected representative, cannot adopt the
Impartial attitude necessary to get at the facts.
It seems to us that the suggestion of Bassi's is a good one.
The only basis for opposing it might be the reluctance of
certain councillors to delegate authority.
lfoe interests of the students in this dollar short year
.should be placed ahead of anything so petty as this.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
—iXWwerlfll your critical
and unfactual editorial of Thursday, 25, concerning the treasurer
of the AMS, we would like to
point out the following points.
Neither the treasurer's or the
president's report of last year's
council made any recommendation to the effect that the office
staff should be cut to the business manager and one girl during the summer months. The
personnel committee submitted
no report.
The personnel committee, contrary to your editorial, ratified
the hiring of a second girl. There
was no need for this body to
give Its approval because during the summer months Mr.
Maunsell (business manager)
and Mrs. Mavis Murray (accountant) are given their holidays.
Their combined holidays stretch
over seven weeks. Mr. Maunsell,
who  should  know, says that  it
would he Impossible for one person, to operate the office properly.
Do not overlook the fact that
summer session uses this office
during tiie summer months and
ihey require the same services
uh does the winter session.
We believe this is a ore accurate picture of the facts.

Both financially and administratively It appears that the

Wo realize that the Arts Undergraduate Society must little

For these reasons, tho Student
Council should grant the AUS
a budget at least sufficient to
c.irry on a successful Special

Such a program would replace
the banquets, kmol<ers and
dances the average undergraduate society sponsors. This special events program would be
a service not only to Arts students but also to the genenal
student body. In addition the
AUS would handle the main ac-
llvltfes usually connected with
an  undergraduate group.
There is, right now, an opportunity to revitalize the Arts

Will   the   AMS  <and   the   Students' Council allow us to take

are" after formal parties so consequently the tuxedo la an accepted
part of the daily campus routine.
In keeping up with the sophisticated fashions set by the male
sex, girls are often quite dressed
up with heels and chic creations
being cpmmon.

In after a formal," the new UBC
student hastened to explain when
asked 'If the girls wore their formals to school too.
Although UBC hasn't the atmosphere of Park Avenue flaring an
Easter Parade, the student who
wishes lo remain unknown, said
she loves the beautiful campus,and
expects she will soon get used to

September Souk. Gone are the
days when my heart was K>ung
and gay . . . Frosh Week Is over
and classes begin iu earnest. The
time for peppermint llfesavers
and deep thought comes with
,. Indian summer and time-worn
leaves of various texts.
This being Friday, final day
of the "eased-into-routlne week,
we can survey the .campus and
remark on changes all over.
Change has always been a
marvellous thing but polfred
opinion has it that the Caf conveyor belt is a little too obvious. WE can walk.
