"Government authority of
the public works is in the
interest of the Little Man," was
vehemently declared by Jo-
hann Stoyva at the Mock Parliament session Thursday, in
Arts NHh
JohMiin Htoyvu, Minister of Finance, presented the hill for '-Socialization o( all financial machinery — banking, currency, credit,
and Insurance, to make possible
the effective control or currency,
credit nnd prices, and the supplying of new- productive equipment
for socially desirable purposes."
Vaughan Lyon, leader of tho
Official Opposition of the Liberals,
loudly declared, "I cannot criticise
the bill presented by the CCP bo-
cause* It has no case to stand on."
"Before tiie CCF Party was ln
power, the Little Man was on top
of the world one day, and in rags
und shirt sleeves the next, T'lie
CCP will help to stabilize him. The
small producer, Insurance compan
les, .plants, are better off when
under governmental authority.
This Bill," said Minister Stoyva.
"Is in the Interest of the small

The resolution nssuihes that the

Canadians Must Support
Own Literature - Andrews
"Canada does not have a great
literature because we don't know
ourselves," declared Mr. Andrews
of the English Department. He
spoke at the Canadian Book Week
meeting Thursday at FG 100 on
Canadian humor.
Talking in place of Dr. Roy Daniels, with Dr. Waters, Mr. Andrews pointed out thut few Canadians have «n appetite for, tiie
humor of the various sections of
this country. Dealing at some
length with what he called "The
earth that Canadian literature
grows out of," Andrews described
the Cape Breton Scot's tall story
type of humor.
"Canadian literature lias heen
dedicated to the highlighting of
tiie character and characteristics
of Canada and .Canadian people,"
said the English lecturer, lie held
up Stephen Leneock's works as the
outstanding example of wvitlng.
I     "You will not make your future
j writing .for   the   Canadian   public
i yet," said  Dr. Waters, accompany-
j ing speaker at the crowded  moe*.-
ing.   Tliere   are   thousands   of   Ca-
' nadlan hooks known only to their
j authors and  publishers,  he stated.
If   Canadians   want   a   representative fiction, they must support, the
men who write that fiction.
!     In splLo of tlio small financial re
turn received, there are Canadian
writers who will still write about
their country and Its people, he
said  emphatically.
Citing examples of some writers
whom he said added lustre to Canadian literature, Dr. Waters mentioned Gabrielle Roy's "The Tin
Flute" and Krelsel's "The Rich

Fratricidal Tendencies
The Senate ruling designed to keep students
With a poor academic standing out of the
fraternity system has finally been dragged
out of its pigeonhole.
For the past dozen years, the Inter-Fraternity council has winked at the illegal
pledging of students with first year standing
artd produced a situation which makes the
recent suspension of one of the campus' 17
fraternities seem like an exaggerated enforcement of an unpopular law.
The IFC was formed not only to consolidate
the fraternities int6 a powerful campus bloc,
but to provide the government needed to
make the fraternities exist with one another
with at least a semblance of harmony But in
trying to formulate a set of regulations which
Would be beneficial to. the majority of the
groups, they have practically strangled the
freedom of fraternities on this campus, and
produced a dangerous mockery of the IFC,
The charge levelled at Delta Kappa Epsilon
could have been duplicated with any other
fraternity on the campus. Every one of them
have at one time or another during the last
five years, taken pledges with ft fltttt year
standing, and moBt of ttoem have aetivw members who were initiated into the fraternity
while still officially m their freshman year.
This is not a sign of moral turpitude among
the Greek Letter men. Ner ii it my tadlea*
tion that the fraternities are having to take
in freshmen In order to keep Up their membership. The ruling is a faree, and will
probably be -taken as such as fofl| an it Is in
force. And to enforce it to the full weuM
mean the suspension of every fraternity nn
Having taken the initial step, the IFC is
now obligated to follow through with bus*
pensions of other fraternities obviously guilty
of the same violations. Before they rule themselves right off the campus, they should either
attempt to have the ruling softened up by
the Senate or warn their member groups of
their intentions in enforcing the rule.
After the blasts of Criticism aimed at the
Greeks in recent years it would be Quite a
paradox to see them vote themselves out of
existence. * —G.K.

Kvcrybody loves a snob. And
Ihis campus has not snobs like
Australia has rabbits. Tliey
come in all sizes ami shapes, emil
have all sorts of habitats, und
Ihey pick seine of the most ingenious thiiiKei to be snotty
abiii.il :
Student Administration Snob
. The Admin snob may he seen
any noon hour in Brock' Hall.
Ile is easily Identifiable because
he looks IMPORTANT. This is
the result of many years of
thinking himself Important. Most
admin snobs wear bow ties, and
spend their leisure hours revising constitutions and  things.
Christianity Snob
The Xianity Snob oozes self-
satisfaction. He is firmly convinced that HK HAS IT and noone else bas even sot u clue,
lie is a direct descenclent of Carrie Nation who used her spare
t lime to breeze into pubs and
smash all bottles in sight, and
pound a pot shouting "I am
saved. I am saved." The Xianity
snob is related only remotely
to the Christian, "and usually
answers all queries with "You'll
have to check that before they
let you IhioiiRli the pearly Rates.''
Atheism Snob
Tills snob is colloquially known
to a trade as a "l.oosnioie'' and
Koes around with a chip on his
shoulder where his head should
be. Ilo is frequently disguised
as an intellectual, and i.s identifiable only by his eagerness to
display Ills wares. If you ask the
ho whiskered fellow across the
la hie from you In Hie library
what lime, il is and lie replies
"It's nine thirty, and there's no
Cod, you know," you can figure
il   out   yourself.
.Inst   ignore   him.   ile   may   go
a way.
Tolerance   Snob
Thus for our own "good" we had better
turn these rights and responsibilities over "to
the Senate and after graduation turn our
rights and responsibilities over to some other
authoritarian government.
This unfortunate attitude is reflected in the
Student's Coundil, "respectfully requesting"
the Senate to assume some of the Students
Council's rights and responsibilities in administering student affairs.
The Senate responsibilities at the University are lo administer thc academic affairs
ol the University; on the other hand it remains
for the students council to accept the responsibilities for administering Student affairs.
Return control over Student affairs to the
elected representatives of the students.
Preserve Freedom at UBC.
by franck
The tolerance snob Is a social
antibiotic  (Boy, have I ever got
control of the Knullsli language?)
developed to combat the now
largely defunct Intolerance Snob.
He is so tolerant that lt hurts.
He puts on Goodwill progrums
at the drop of a hat to,show that
everybody loves everybody elan,
and keeps rubbing in the fact
that he's not the least prejudiced against his inferiors. He
is only sliglily better than the Intolerance  Snob.
Theatrical Snob
The theatre snob (tiroiiounced
TI.IKK-AH-TER) speaks in n distinct lOnglish accent, even it
born (or hatched) ln Osoyoos.
lie Is recognizable hy n sprinkling of Kuripedes in his casual
conversation as In "Aroint thee,
thou Ul begotten wench, and
fet,chest thou me u pot of stinking .lava."
This variety of campus snob
may lie found under the couch In
tho (Ireeii-room, whicli he considers a concession area, exempt
by divine forbearance from the
mundane rules of morality which
restrict lesser  mortals.
Snob About Snobs
The snob about snobs is tt
self-satisfied. shai'-ky looking
creature that sometimes is hanging out In tiie Hrock by his neck
from the roof. Ile writes n column and he bas a hig nose and
he wears a blue jacket, worn
through at the elbows and nobody loves bim anil . . .Oh,
what's  the  use.

play, A. P. Herbert's "Two Gentlemen of Soho," which brought yesterday evening to a melodramatic
climax whimsical mass suicide,

Greek Dramas
To Prove
Rumor False
A meiiiber of the UBC English
Department h«s literally taken
arms against the Insidious rumour
tlint Greek drama is inevitably un-
successful on the modern stage.
With the help of two choruses
and somtf (Six principals, Miss
Dorothy Somerset Is out to prove
that Greek tragedy in English can
be exciting. The Agamemnon and
the Choephoroe of Aeschylus'
"Orestela" will he given In mid-
January ns this year's English Department presentation. These are
the first two of the only trilogy
preserved from the Athenian stage.
Among principals in both plays
are Nalda McFnul, Bob Woodward,
Doreen Odling, Doris Chilcott, Betty
Vogel, and Pat Thomas.
Excitement Ip bulldirfg this type
of play comes not only from the
beauty of the lines and the development of the classic theme but also
rrom the fact that the cast are
wholly non-professional, being students from all walks 6f campus
A rehearsal with Miss Somel-set
is equal to a thorough workdut ln
the gym. Directions come thick
ahd rast as the play moves on.
"Think of yourselves as human
beings not a chorus, I want thdtlght,
feeling, now relax Anna, take your
own line, now once again, over
here, I want the action. No, no,
don't come dawn yet Orestes,
Chorus let the tone tiow, take that
much lower."
As someone said (under her
sweet breath) "Just grim obedience
carries you through".

Our Birds Whip Vikings;
Big Weekend
Birds Get  Revenge
For Football Losses
»ll HulchlMon — Editor
Al Folherinjham■■— Associate Edilor
And In This Corner ..
Yesterday tht Ubyasey printed the views of those students who
have drawn up the recommendations to be placed before the meeting
at noon today. Below are the views of those defending the present
athletic eet-up.—Kdltor.
The coaching staff of the school of Physical Education and
Athletics feel the present system of Athletics is functioning the
way it was organized to do so and that this system was established* for four years and has been operating 1 Vj years and is
beginning to show results functionally .and financially. If the
system recommended by a few students goes into effect where
they have sole control of the Athletics they will be reverting to
the past where there is no continuity, lack of organization and
loss of money.
Financially the proposed system would make it necessary
for the students to produce a $50,000.00 budget to operate the
program which they desire and at the present time are only
operating on a $16,000.00 budget.
The Sub-Committee on Athletics and Physical Education-
appointed by University Council on Athletics and Physical
Education—re the change in the Athletic Organization at UBC,
January 10th, 1051, state:
"Section 2, Sub-Section C—THE DUTIES OF THE ATHLETIC
To appoint, direct and advise the coaches of all sports, both
major and minor.
He himself should do no coaching unless he has built up an
organization which will Insure that his other duties are not neglected.  (IJndpr these conditions it Is considered that lt would be impossible for tiie Athletic Director to be the head football coach).
"Section 2, Sub-Section K —
To carry out, as far as possible, the wishes of the student body
as expressed by the Student Athletic Council, where It does not
interfere WH|» any long term or overall policy as formulated by the
Athletic Directorate or the Committee on Athletics and Physical
The proposed system is therefore no change from the
present system.
The Meh's Athletic Committee is made up of:
1. Four students
2. Two Faculty members
3. The Athletic Director
4. An Alumni representative
5. An elected chairman, at present the head of the
School of Physical Education.
JOHN TENNANT, 3rd Year Law.
MAD Has This To Say
Many managers have brought forth their opinions regarding
the recommendation that the Athletic Director be the football
coach. The chief objection to this is tha*the. Athletic Director
would emphasize football.at the expense of all other sports.
By this it is meant that when a manager of another sport
desired to see him it is possibly that he would be out on the
football field.
As UBC has one of the most extensive extra-mural pro-
grama operating anywhere, particularly in minor sports, the
Athletic Director as football coach would direct not only his
time to football, but also do his utmost to see that most of the
finances would be spent on football.
Another objection to this recommendation is that under the
present system of participation in .the Evergreen Conference,
the football coach would be away from the campus for two or
three days depending upon the length of the trip and hence
would be unavailable to attend to immediate business, and
problems of the managers. ,
In summary, both from an operational and financial point
of view, it would be impractical and unwise to have an Athletic
Director as football coach.
GERRY MAIN. President of MAD.
Over 1,000 happy students, hooting and cheering vigorously,
watched the Thunderbirds soundly whip* Western Washington
Vikings in the gym at noon yesterday and thus started one of
the most active week-ends in UBC's short but colorful sport

No matter what happens over the
weekend one of the highlights for
students has to be the showing put
on by Pomfret's revitalized Thunderbirds as they whipped the Vikings.
The Birds looked like an entirely
different team to the amazed UBC
students In beating potentlaly
powerful Western Washington. If
anything, they ioked even better
than in their initial appearance
against Eilers.
Led by Brian Upaon, Canny Zaharko and John McUod, Birds took
the lead from the opening basket
and were never behind. They
spurted to an early -2645 "lead,
stretched it to 40-28 ut the half,
faded slightly In the opening minutes of the last halt, then pulled
awuy almost with ease for the 22-
poldt victory.
Beaten decisively by the Vikings
last year, the Birds surprised tbe
big crowd by taking tbe lead ou
baskets by McLeod and Upson.
Continually out hustling und stealing the ball from their bigger opponents, UFIC kept stretching their
lead until they walked oft the floor
with a 40-28 margin at half time.
Pace of the game slackened at
the start or the second half and
Birds couldn't seem to get going.
Woodman, «'($" centre and big gun
for the Vikings, hooked in successive) baskets to cut the margin to
10 points.
Zaharko raced in for a lay-up on
a break away, McLeod tipped in a
rebound and the Birds started to
roll again. With Brian Upson set-
', ting up their criss-cross and cutting system and with Ernie Ny-
liwug handing off smoothly UHC
slowly pulled away froni the Vikings and students went wild at the
sepctacle of their team muking

Nyhaug threw in a hook shot

The team with (he most outstanding record in
any sport ut UBC is usually Ignored ln the glare
of publicity about football, .soccer, hockey and
poker playing In the Brock.
The team which makes all other campus sports
look insignificant Is the Varsity girls grass hockey
team. The girls on this team have not been defeated
for SIX YEARS in Pacific Northwest Crass Hockey
While all the squabble about the footbull and
basketball teams Is going on this under-publicized
team has been piling up this record.
This year the girls again romped through the
tournameiu undefeated. The I'a.ific Northwest
(irasshockey Conference was held in Eugene,
Oregon, on November 14. l.j and ltf. Attending
were 1" teams from l.'i clubs and universities in
Idaho, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

Kadi team In ihe tournament played three games.
I'BC went through th*- whole clambake without
having a goal scored augin.st them. Our Varsity
gals smeared Washington State tS-n. slapped down
I'nlveislty of Oregon :in and finished up by whitewashing Oregon State -1-0.
Only other team present from this land of ice,
snow, Motilities and the Dtomte Quintuplets north
of the border was n representative team from the
Vancouver (Irasshockey League. These girls alio
won all their games. This must prove something
nbout Canadian females, but It hasn't been figured
olit   yet.

Top scorer on 'the Varsity squad was "captain
Doreen Armour. She blasted In six of the 18 goals.
* Our team was clearly far superior to the other
outfits, showing greuter skill in stickwork nnd
ten in play.
At the tournament in Eugene the players were
housed in campus living quarters. The girls were
treated to a big banquet on the final night In the
Student Union ballroom.
Over 250 people attended the bash, undoubtedly
for a look at the UBC team, the hottest thing which
has hit grass hockey since Rocket Richard.
