University of British Columbia students Thursday upheld
a Student Council motion to censure The Ubyssey "lor the way
in which it named three discriminatory fraternities/'
A Ubyssey motion to rescind the Council censure was defeated by a voice vote at a special general meeting of the Alma
Mater Society attended by more than 1200 students Thursday
noon at the armouries. ^
The motion proposed by
Ubyssey editor-in-chief Peter
Sypnowich "to right the wrongs
of an unjust censure" said:
"Whereas The Ubyssey, in its
statement naming the fraternities with discriminatory constitutions in the way in which it did,
in no way violated its obligations
as a university newspaper:
"Therefore be it resolved that
the Alma Mater Society rescind
Student Council's motion of censure against The Ubyssey for the
way in which it named the three
discriminatory fraternities."
BOOMING VOICE and appealing arguments of Walt Young provided the excuse for an
overwhelming defeat of The Ubyssey's motion at Thursday's AMS General meeting. The
Ubyssey asked students to rescind Student Council's vote of censure but met defeat at the

• She declared that no discrimination exists, and that she had
"no control" over sororities. She
felt that Asiatic girls did not receive rushing brochures solely
because Pan-Hellenic did not
consider they would be interested in rushing.
"I don't know how they decide who is interested," the Dean
said. She emphasized that rushing information was "available"
to any girl, even if brochures
were not mailed to every one.
To Decide
Decision to allow a Ubyssey
reporte rinto meetings of the
Men's Athletic Committee will
have to be made by President
MacKenzie, MAC chairman Dean
Matthews declared Thursday
He stated that as the MAC was
a committee of the president and
comparable to other' administrative committees, any decisions
on reporter admittance must be
made by Dr. MacKenzie.
AMS treasurer Ron Bray, one
of four student members of MAC,
said the Student Council would
make the request to the president today. A decision will probably be ready next week.
Student Council was directed
by student vote at the first general meeting of the AMS to make
the request to the MAC after
Ubyssey reporter Stan Beck was
excluded from one of the meetings.
The motion was moved by
EIC Peter Sypnowich and asked
that the student council make
the request of the MAC, with the
proviso that MAC should feel
free to go into a committee-of-the-
whole if the situation warranted.
Dean Mawdsley declared that,
as sororities were international
organisations, they were not under University control. "We cooperate with them; we don't con
with us, but the Dean of Women's Office has no authority
over sororities or the Pan-Hellenic Society."

Student Hearing, Votes
A campus political battle is in the offing* with the announcement by. Parliamentary Forum that students will elect
a Mock Parliament to convene November 16.
The struggle will begin when ^
campus political parties present
their platforms to students and
fight for their suport.
AH five parties are confident
of gaining enough suport to form
a government.
Liberals, who formed last
year's government, report forty
active members this year, while
Progressive Conservatives have
signed up thirty-fiv.e members.

the Rod Young issue, has reappeared with a membership of

A Matter of Need
We extend a vote of thanks to the speaker at yesterday's
general meeting who, during the debate on the budget, pointed out that it would be unfortunate if the Undergraduate
Societies and the Men's Athletic Directorate were split into
hostile factions.
"The issue is not MAD versus USC," said the speaker,
•The issue is, who has the greater need?"
It was proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that MAD
needed the money and that USC could well afford to take
a cut.
Die students, very rightly, rescinded USC's amendment
ind gave the dime to the organization that needed it most—
.MAD.   /
If it had'been shown that USC needed the money more
than MAD, than the Ubyssey would have supported USC.
But this was not the case. The only thing USC objected to
Was taking a budget cut regardless of whether or not they
would still have sufficient funds on which to operate a well-
balanced program.
How else is a budget drawn up except according to the
relative needs of the organizations that share in that budget?
It is unfortunate that the issue was between two such
vital organizations as USC and MAD. It would be highly
detrimental to student activities at UBC if either group
feele any ill will towards the other.
MAD needed the money. USC did not. Students voted to
give the money to MAD. They could not have voted any other
Editor, The Ubyssey:
A minute's reflection cannot
fail to reveal bow ridiculous it
is to claim that one knows better what a person to really interested in without any proper
He cannot have the right to
Judge other people's interest in
that way. Moreover, the interest of a person depends not only
upon himself, but also upon the
surroundings, upon the attitude
of the members of, say, the
sorority concerned. If a member puts down the verdict that
a girl, because of her color,
cannot have interest in a sorority, how can that girl became
interested in it at all?
Pushed off page two last
week by the space consuming
UbysseyCouncil squabble,
Madame Lemoulin continues
her space consuming squabble with th* Fenians.
"We commandeer this house
in the name of Timothy Shee-
an," the leader said, a wild light
shinging from his shamrock
green eyes."
"We are going to turn it into
a rest and relaxation centre
for this bunch of rookies. I
must inform you that if you resist you will be shot. Now we
want food."
"Silly b . . ..s," said Madam
Lemoulin. "Bring the rookies
into the kitchen and we'll give
them something to chew on."
The Fenians were exhausted
after an evening spent burning
barns. As a grand climax they
wiped from the face of the earth
of traces of local 172 of the
Orange Lodge.
Thus, when offered food, they
fell to with a will, and after a
time, sated with food and strong
drink, they all fell fast asleep.
Madam Lemoulin sprang into
action. Selecting one of thc
more comely rookies, she undressed him and put on his
clothes. Clenching her teeth
around the stem of a clay pipe,
she set off into the night.
Her plan was to travel in
disguise through the dead of
night to the British garrison in
the next county, notify General Brock of the invasion, summon »help, and save the settlement.  (Screen  right reserved).
And what a journey It was!
Her path lay through thc dark-
depths of the forest, where
painted Indians lurked behind
every bush.
At one point, she was accosted by a fierce Iroquois buck,
who demanded tribute. But she
mollified the savage by buying twenty - three souvenir
twong pouches for a dollar
each, and for good measure, she
threw in a string of beads.
At another point, she was attacked by an enraged Timber
Wolf. Heroically, she thrust
her foot into his slavering jaws.
On and on Madam stumped
through the forest.
.Finally,   towards   dawn,   she
saw the lights of Ihe garrison
in the distance. Gritting her
teeth around the clay pipe, she
pressed grimly onwards.
At last she fell, exhausted into the arms of the guard at the
gate, and gasped, "I must see
General Brock at once!!!"
Hurriedly, she was ushered
into the great General's apartments, where she slumped into
a chair, and breathlessly panted ."Fenian rookies ... at my
Leaping from his seat, the
great general cried, "What ho,
the guard, sound the Toscin,
to horse! To horse!"
"Horse, hell," muttered Madam Letnoulin, "this is no time
for games." But she was ignored by the General in his e4P
And what a journeil it was!
Spurring their horses to undreamed-of efforts, the regiment, with the Madam at the
head, dashed madly up hill and
down dale, through sleepy villages, and dense forest.
"My. such enthusiasm," remarked Madam at one point of
the wild ride, "such devotion
to duty."
Finally they approached the
Madam's house, and dashed into
the yard, the troops uttering
wild, gleeful cries. "Where,
where?" they shrieked.
"The Fenian Rookies are in-
side,»in the kitchen," said Madam Lemoulin. »
A deathly hush suddenly settled over the assemblage. As
his men gaped in shocked disbelief, General Brock turned to
the madam.
"What . . . did . . . you
say?" asked the General.
"Fenian, fonian rookies . . .
you know, at my house," ,
"Fenian Rookies," he shrieked, "I thought you said free
Noo ..." the general was unable to finish. He had collapsed.
Hi.s  mon  helped  him  to  his
horse, and the General rode off,
a broken man. His troops loped disconsolately after him.

The statue? The Fenians
erected that in memory of the
wonder lu I evening spent at the
Madam's house.
As one of them put  it, "Madam Lemoulin   was   n   helluva
1 good scout."
And yet, it is «till more
shocking to reid the proud announcement purporting that
the compelling reason for the
arbitrary Judgment on the colored girls' Interest was the cost
of the printing the invitation
It reveals unwittingly the
plain fact that to them, though
mostly rich, I understand, a
few dollars outweigh the human dignity and can constitute the sound ground - to
trample down the colored or
the poor.
This is more than a mere assumption for the superiority of
one's Judgment. It is an overall assumption for the superior
being founded upon the supremacy of money.
• Whatever their pretext, the
way of the discrimination practiced by the sororities is, in its
minimum significance, a subtle
form of fraud, typical of the
modern wealthy class. In its
maximum effect, it is \he violation of the central idea of our
Democracy—namely the equality of the opportunity.*
The poor, the colored, were
said to have been given, though
often meaningless, the equal
opportunity under the system
of Democracy. Now, the sorority, representing the rich class,
seem to have discarded that
lofty but empty c^aim, even be-
for the former have come to
realize its emptiness, to refuse
that generous lip-homage of
their own accord.
The attitudes taken by the
various agencies of the campus
including the faculty and the
student council, in regard to
this controversy, are very revealing. Sooner or later they
will have to be fully revealed.
It is my pleasure to state that
The Ubyssey has the full support of all the students armed
with the moral force and Democracy.
Those who stick to the clay
of the past may have to be
blackmailed by the threat of
Communism. If this does not
do any good, there is a better
remedy—force. I hate force—
but in order to survive, we
must change, and change quickly. Or Communism will, not
change, but eradicate us once
and for all.
To repeat briefly, the meaning of discrimination practiced
by the fraternities and sororities Is that it represents one of
the many aspects of the capitalist class that is still thriving
on this American continent.
Their ideas, their nature,
and their ^hole life may be
ever) more harmful than the
many defects, of Communism
which I don't hesitate to denounce.
As one of many contemporaries who has witnessed the
rule of Communism, I think I
have not exaggerated the implications of discrimination on
the campus.
Yours sincerely, K.
Fort Camp.

Birds' Hopes High
For First Victory
Coryell's   T"  To Test
Lappy's  Straight  Line
Angry  Boy
Punches All,
Even  Pop
Our Sirds had more than
a moral victory against Eastern
Washington last Saturday...
they escaped annihilation by 320
lb. Dick Graves.
The 'hefty' youth gave his
own players a scare, too. tt
seems Dick, after being ordered
off the field (for roughing one
of our courageous Birds,) resisted the order, and thrashed
out at his own team members
ai they persuaded him to the
Dick, outraged, threw hi* helmet et the bench giving one
ol Eastern's hopefuls a good
smack. Coach Id Chissus of Eastern ducked a vicious right, and
poor old Pop', coming out of the
stands to speak to his boy, got
one'between the eyes to leave
hlm cold (for at least ten minutes.)
UBC will be Invaded by two
top soccer teams this Sunday
when Halecos, led by former
Pacific Coast leaguer Jackie
Whent, play Thunderbirds and
Households will be entertained
by the Chiefs, both games on
The veteran Haleco team will
be out for their first win this
year and reports have it they
will be at full strength. The
Birds, with Stan Glasgow and
Dick Matthews back, are expecting their second  victory.
And so the crystal ball comes out again. Tying the suspenders around a tree trunk, in case the bough breaks, the ever-
hopeful editor of this page crawls out on a limb again and
predicts a Thunderbird win.    «"	
up for the backfield is nigh intact. 'Gerry Stewart will be
bothered by sore ribs, but otherwise all ls rosy.
Up front, all is well except
around the ends. Charlie James,
with a bad hip, is a sure non-
starter, and Dick Matthews is in
the same boat with a sore shoulder.
It means lanky Dave Stowe
will see a lot of work arid the
opinion up on the limb is that
he should do very well. Herb
Haywerd and George Lee will:
he brought up from the Jayvee's,
losers Sunday to Blue Bombers
reserves, to help fill ffiChiples.
The kind of team Coryell's
charges will face at 2 p.m. will
be an odd one. bepenbusch promises no less than eight offensive formations, though all operate out of a. modified box.
And for defense, Charlie will
present his selfdeslgned straight
line, the system that is supposed
to k)Uthe T, of any variety.
Could be that Coryell's brew
win be too strong..
This week the pre-game favorites to lose are the Western
Washington Vikirigs, Instructed
in the art of body-smashing by
Jolly Charlie Lappenbusch, the
grand old man of football, author
of books, inventor of the straight
line defense, biggest buyer in the
crying towel market, and proprietor of the theory, "it ain't the
system wot's wrong, it's the player."
Charlie, who incidentally predicted this ai a good year for
our blue and gold kids, ls bringing along, if one listens to him,
a pretty bad team. At least, lt
will be a different one from the
squad which used to beat us 80-0.
Lappy is bringing only two
lettermen this year, all-conference fullback Don Lapp, and left-
half New Westmlnsterite Ken
The left line ls loaded with
frehsmen, and his ends are weak,
at least so he says, while his
centre, Hackett, will be one of
the toughest boys Ron Stewart
could face.
By the scores to date, Lappy
has a case. The Vikings have lost
all three'games, and in the tilts
with league co-champs Whitworth and College of Puget
Sound were bashed by an identical 33-0 score.
But we know Lappy. Like
Eastern did last week, Western
may find itself for this one. Besides, the Americans have a mortal fear of losing to their Canadian cousins.
For Coryell's charges, the line-
All-Blacks To Be
Rugby Chiefs Foes
Varsity Chiefs, in their battles for the Miller Cup, will attempt to avenge last Saturday's 9-6 loss to South Burnaby, by
snapping the undefeated streak of North Shore All-Blacks,
Saturday, October 16 at Confederation Park.
North Shore has yet to lose
a game this season, and observers regard the Saturday tilt with
Varsity as an all-important test
—for both teams. Coach Albert
Laithwaite, (without an "e" in
the middle), refuses to be pinned
down to a statement regarding
the team's chances. He prefers
to let his hoys do their own
talking through their playing
actions on the field.
All week long the Chiefs have
been driving in their practices,
and building up slowly towards
peak form. Though no one has
yet come out with the opinion
that; ^we're really 'up' for this
one!" the squad emotes a quiet
confidences which should encourage fans.
The Burnaby game, and ensuing work-outs have unearthed
several players of promising calibre. Laird, Pearson, Chambers,
and Frank Harvey-Smith have
shown better-than-average form
to date, and should develop further as the* season progresses.
Injuries to rugger-ites range
from septic fingers to broken
ankles; Dott, Sandilands, Kinney,
Morford, Warnock, and Vallis
are among the more seriously
However, Coach Albert has
approximately 78 Englishy rug
ger bodies from which to .select
his teams, and the line-up representing Chiefs on Saturday
is possibly stronger than the one
which held Burnaby to a 3 point
win last week.

UBC cheering factions will
be split into two sections Saturday, as the east side stands are
currently wide apart to open
space for the $800 seats to be
brought over from the pool.
The pooL seats will be ready
tor occupation by the October
for the game against CPS.
Despite the inconvenient placing, UBC fans will be in for
one of the wildest Circuses seen
yet on the campfls. It might
almost equal the pub float.
Western Washington will
bring along a 75 piece marching
band, along with, cheerleaders
and tbe usual busload of invaders.
iUBC will counteract with its
bevy of beautiful babes, and
Pep Club Js promising the unveiling of the "Mystery Mascot."
It will not, repeat, not, be a
member of the editorial board.
The whole fracas, and there
will be a ball game also, starts
at 2 p.m. instead of the usual
Varsity grass hockey team will
look for its second w{| Saturday when they meet North Shore
at Brockton Point.
The UBC (second team) w}ll
play the Redbirds, losers to Varsity last week, on the campus.
