The Ubyssey
ISS Scholarship
Fund Referendum
Planned October 3
Students will decide by referendum October 3, whether
or not they wish AMS fees
raised from $15 to $16 this
year to bring two foreign students to the campus.
Fund would be a continuation
of the Greer-Belkov "Education
for Democracy" plan. The ISS
plan would utilize $4,100 now
held in trust and which officials hope will be unfrozen to-
allow two students one of
whom is now at UBC, to stay
in Canada.
AMS treasurer Walter Ewing's tentative budget has yet to be passed
by Students' Council before it can
be presented for approval to the
student body.
In Ewing's proposed budget, administration costs have jumped from
$13,000 to $16,000, largely due to the
expense of paying the salary of the
newly installed business manager.
All other budgets have been slashed
Student activities have gone from
last year's 510,000 to $2000. publications from $10,500 to $3975, $3000 of
which goes to the Ubyssey as compared with $6800 last year.
Ewing warns that his proposed
will be submitted to the student body,
budget is not necessarily the one that
October 5. He says that it may be
considerably changed by Student
Items   that   will   not'be  changed;
however, the budgets for administration, the Ubyssey and the $11,000 to
MAD. Last year MAD got $11,125.
Students' Council will also have to
get the student body to approve
changing the wording in the terms of
the Belkov-Greer "Education for
Democracy" fund.
German students are not allowed
into the country by the Canadian
Both scholarship winners are now on
the campus, but ISS had to put up
the $1000 for their transportation, and
until the student body approves the
change in wording, they will be living on AMS money.
The original $4100 in the fund is still
intact, the fund owes $1000 to ISS
plus the cost of supporting the two
students on the campus until the
October 5 meeting to AMS.
AMS president, Jim Sutherland,
said Wednesday that he expected the
motion to change the wording to go
through the meeting as a mere formality. I
Refusal of s'tudents to pass the
motion would mean that AMS will
be out over $2000 by the time the
scholarship winners have completed
their two-year course. I

Campus Shop Has
Freshmen Needs
Catering to the diverse needs of
the student body keeps the Campus
shop—where goods range from ties to
text books—one of the busiest campus
Specializing in redistributing used
text books, thc shop is located along
with the book exchange in HM 13
on the East Mall,
Popular buys, the shop reports, are
UBC Song Book and Hail UBC records by Rickey Hyslop's orchestra.
Sheet music for same is on hand.
Frosh should be especially interested in the shop because it gives
them their first opportunity to get
acquainted with colors of the various
faculties. Il may mean the difference
between life and death to you during
Frosh Initiation Week, to be able to
tell a Science sweater. Trot over to

Two Issues Face
Student Body At
Stadium Meeting
The two most important issues at October 5's general
meeting of the AMS will be
approval of the AMS debt-
slashing budget and rewording
of terms of the ISS scholarship
The terms of the fund at
present read "German students" and will have to be
changed to read "foreign students" before money in the
fund can be used by ISS,
Referendum will be worded so that
foreign students of any nationality
be allowed i'o take advantage of the
ISS officials see no chance of  the
lifting  of  the   ban   bringing  German
nationals   here,   hence  the  change  in
Referendum was specified at tho
final AMS meeting last year. Resolution stated a referendum should be
held "in the fall" to decide whether
or not to perpetuate the fee increase.
AMS President Jim Sutherland
stated Wednesday, that a better idea
m'ghv have been to have the referendum after students had decided
whether they approved of the type
of students ISS was bringing in.
He pointed out, however, that since
the motion had been passed, siudentu
council had little to do with it except see that the referendum was
held in accordance with student wishes.
The present $4100 in t'he trust fund,
was raised by docking everyone $1.

the sum will last since this is thc
first time UBC has undertaken such

two-year scholarships, with transportation for winners from Europe and

Plans Full Year
Contrary to the belief of many of
the Frosh the French Club is not a
debating society for French intellectuals but rather a social club which
gathers to exchange pleasantries in
French, sing, eat and watch movies.

interest i.s all that i.s required to gain
entrance to  this active campus group.

arerisl balance
From a bewildering array of organizations
ranging from the A22 Society to the Labor
Progressive Party Club, from the Musical
Society to the Russian Circle, from the Radio
Society to the Fencing Club, the freshmen
must choose his activities.
Today in a long line of tables around the
Arts lawn all these organizations will tempt
the freshmen with offers of entertainment and
little mention of work. Fortunately, most
freshmen will realize that any organization
requires a lot of hard work and yields entertainment only in proportion to the work done.
The  wise  freshman  will  weigh  carefully
his talents and his interests against his academic committments and strike a balance.
In any university the personnel of organizations must constantly be changing. Senior
students — some of them — graduates and
others must be found to take their places,
The continuity depends upon the number of
freshmen who join the group—and stay with
it; during their four years.
The years spent in university are too short
to allow the student to do much "shopping
around" after the first year. He must choose
his activities now and, so far as possible,
stick  with  them.
Let's Unfreeze The Funds
Two foreign students will attend UBC this
year, brought here with funds provided by
the International Student Service and the
Alma Mater Society. These two groups have
put up $1,400.
The ISS has spent $1000 in order that the
students will have their passage paid and the
AMS will.foot the bill for their living costs.
At the General AMS meeting October 5,
studejdiiP'wilf have to decide whether they
will umtfeeze $4000 now held in trust, collected last year through a $1 increase in
second term fees.
None of this money has been touched in
order to bring the foreign students to UBC.
The original intention of the so-called
Greer-Belkov "Education for Democracy"
plan was to bring German students here
from the University of Hamburg to learn the
principals of Canadian democracy.
The Canadian Government still has not
lifted thc ban forbidding the entrance of
German  nationals  into  Canada,
Since there is no hope in si.ehi for the
bringing of .such sludents here, il .seems,
logical that lhe $4500 should he put to use iu
educating students  from other countries.
Consequently ,at the general AMS meeting,
the motion to unfreeze the funds will have
lo be qualified with the specification that
the students coming here be of a "foreign
nationality" and not necessarily German in
It  will   bc  an   obtuse  and  easily  swayed
-.student, body that does not allow other nationalities to make use of the funds.
Once students have unfrozen the funds now
held in trust, both parties — the ISS and
the AMS — will bc reimbursed for the initial
expenditure of bringing the students to
If .students do not approve of the change
in qualifications, they will bc forced to foot
(he present students' bill since it is not
leasible to send them home.
A further cut in the AMS budget would
mean that an even greater load would be
put on funds which are now at the breaking point. In short, the AMS couldn't stand
the expense.
The students who have come arc anxious
and willing t,, accept Canadian democracy,
li students vole against I hem, they will
clearly indicate they arc not willing to rebuild  ti  bettor  world.
while the sun shines by vie hay
Being a man given lo that kind, of precise
thinking which put John D. Rockerfeller
where he is, I recently looked at my old
text-books, lying in an undisturbed heap
since last September, thought of the book-
exchange, and, after a while, let out a little
squeak of delight at the sudden realization
that here before me lay, in effect, a pile of
crisp, crackly dollars.
Ten minutes later, flushed, breathless, aqd
rather sweet in my grubby denims, I arrived
at the book-store to find some thirty-one
students, similarly book-laden, waiting in a
fidgety queue. With one flash of my steel-
grey eyes I summed up the situation and
swung into immediate action. Two and a
half hours later I presented myself at tho
counter and politely asked of a demure little
"Is this the book exchange?"
"No," was the sharp reply, "it's Tutankhamen's tomb and I'm about to become a
"Congratulations," 1 said, automatically extending a limp hand across the counter, "now
about my . . . "
"1 know," she interrupled, "you've got
some books, they're in perfect condition, and
you  were  wondering."
"Precisely," 1 said sillily, 'and here they
are." And wilh thai 1 spilled the IVuiis of
last year's queue-slanding and peily thievery
on lhe L'ounler. "I'll bring tlUs rovers tomorrow," I added, "now give me my money,"
"You poor deluded too!, said Slnney-Face,
her lip curling in scorn to reveal a ralhor
handsome p;\ oi-li. >lh, "don'l you l.tiaw lhal

"That's right," she replied, with that endearing sense of whimsy, "you catch on
quick, Jack. But Westmhvdcr Paper will
take them—in fact they'll give you lour ecu'
a pound for them, maybe." And so saying.
she swept my books, my precious, worthless
books, to the floor.
"But whatever shall I clo with them?" I
sobbed, knee-deep in a welter of loose paper.
So she told me, and you can bet I'll never
speak to her again.
Books in sack and back out in the clean,
bright rain again, I started on my quest. A
market for last year's books would be my
goal in life, my gift to future generations of
university sludents, to posterity if you like.
No one will ever know what I've been
through or how much I've suffered unless
I tell, which I propose to clo at this very
moment, I have been' laughed at, cursed,
scorned, mocked, snubbed, and kicked down
two flights of stairs, by book-sellers, book-
buyers, book-manufacturers, book-repairers,
book-binders and bookies, And I still have
my  las!   year's  I ex!-books, all  of them.
Almost as a last report, I have resorted to
advertising the fact that 1 have books to sell,
lint I still have my "Glockenspiel Polishers
Guide," my "Handbook on the Care and
Maintenance of Foghorns," my "Irregular
Sanskrit Verbs", and my "Chinese Room"
although ihe killer, strictly speaking, i.s not

Clubs A Valuable Aid To
Enjoying Life On Campus
(Today on the lawn before the Arts building, an annual event, traditional
lo UBC wil talke jlace. Literary and Scientific Executive will set up tables
tnd expects a bumper crop of undergraduates to sign up for membership
in UBC's myriad clubs. In this statement Margaret Lowbeer, president of
LSE, explains the makeup, of her organization.)
Come one, come all to the Arts lawn today and meet the
One of the most valuable aids to the full enjoyment of
university life is an active participation in the clubs on the
campus. UBC is forlynate in having clubs of every variety—
musical, dramatic, scientific, political, religious, debating and
clubs with particular interests.
There is an organization to meet every taste, and every
student should be able to find a club which has a program
suited to his particular ability or interest. Most clubs have an
open memberships, and will accept any student who shows a
real interest.
Others, however, are limited because there is not enough
work for all comers, or since they are concerned with a
specialized or technical subject.
Clubs at UBC are organized under the Literary and
Scientific Executive (L$E) and are divided into m^jor and
minor Clubs. There are only six permanent major clubs, but
each year five minor clubs are elected to sit on the majpr LSE
and call themselves major clubs for, that year.
Our permanent major .clubs are first the Players' Club
(which really was the first club at UBC), and which invites
all theatre lovers to the Green room, the Parliamentary Forum
which sponsors weekly debates, the Musical Society which
puts on a yearly operetta, the Students Christian Movement
which is social at v/ell as religious, the Radio Society which
has openings for all.interested in radio and last indispensible—
Mamooks the campus service organization, which is the center
of all the poster painting talent at UJ3C.
Our Major clubs for the year are the United Nations
Society, the UBC Symphony Orchestra, and the Amateur
Radio Operators, and two as yet unnamed.
Of course, outside of these clubs there are about fifty
others and if you str '11 '-.round the Arts lawn (or Armories in
case of rain) you will see their signs up, Don't be afraid to
get in touch with th j ones you're interested in, and if you
can't clo it today watch our for club-meeting notices in lhe
Ubyssey or visit the club's room.
Clubs provide yo:; with activities beyond the sphere of
purely academic pursuh > -- they bring realxation, fun, a circle
of new friends and they gu e you the feeling of actually belonging to the university, ih '-(l in the swim and join a club today!

With a full crew of experienced talent at last, Coach Or-:
ville Burke has been hammer- j
ing Thunderbirds into shape.
Defense is going to be the 'Birds
siVong point in the first two or three
games this year. Pass defense shows
a marked improvement over last year
and the line is strong in most of Ms
defensive aspects.
Ineffective blocking on passes was
costly last week, Sadler didn't seem
to have enough time in the pockei
and had to fade outside or pass too
soon. This week's practise will mean
better blocking, more time for the
passer and t'hus we hope more completed passes .
This year the coaching staff has
done a great job of getting the boys
into the type of condition where
injuries are cut to a minimum but
I'hey have had injuries. When those
injuries occur among the first string
linemen it is a serious blow due to
the great lack of experienced depth in
the line."
Bob Murphy injured his knee at
Olympia last week and Burke h'isn't
got anyone who can fill this slot
with Murphy's competence. If the
injury isn't serious all well and good,
if it is and Murphy is unable to

Giving UBC students the first
glimpse on the campus of 1949's version of the American football spuad,
coach Orville Burke will have the
boys run through the plays with
which he hopes to trounce Whitman
College Mi' ■sionarios this Saturday.
The loam will execute their plays,
not all of them, but enough to give
their fans an idea of what they can
do. while the audience has them
explained   over   the  PA  system.
Introduction of the complete coaching staff will take up the first part
of the program. While line coach
Jack Pomfret is no si'ranger to most
of UBC's students, except possibly
for Frosh, the remainder of the trio
"Jelly" Anderson and Orville Burke
are entirely new to the campus.
Through the direction of Burke, and
thc quarterback, the team will pull
off various formations for offense and
defense on the field. Only part of
their activity not to be displayed
:s their superb tackling and blocking.
Featured in the Pep Meet t'o follow
will be "downtown entertainment"
specially brought in for the occasion.
Al MacMillan's jazz section completes the entertainment' for the noon
hour session with a few selections.

Returning forwards are headed by
Bob Koch, Wag Wagner, Fred Andrew, Clare Drake, Bob Lindsay and
Gunner Bailey. These experienced
veterans will form the nucleus of this
University's greatest hockey squad.
The exact makeup of the local
league is still in doubt but it will
likely include UBC, Nanaimo, and
the new Kerrisdale oui'fit. The local
squad plays a two game exhibition
series in Colorado Springs against
the elite U of Colorado. This series
will be a comparative test of UBC's
position as top college hockey squad
in the world.

30 percent stronger than last season
