Discriminatory   Greeks   To   Stay
Faculty Council Monday announced its rejection of the
student request to ban from
the campus fraternities with
discriminatory clauses in their
But Student Council Monday
night launched another anti-
discriminatory move — an investigation into the possibilities of
discrimination in campus sororities.
The Faculty Council decision,
awaited by students for nearly
one year, waj reached by Faculty members March 0, but not released Immediately. The meeting's refusal was based on the
claim that fraternities are "actively engaged" In their own
fight against discrimination.
The request for an ultimatum
to discriminatory fraternities
was asked of Faculty Council
following the general AMS meeting in March of 1953, since authority over Greek Letter societies lies solely in the hands
of Faculty Council. Disciplinary
clauses were to be removed by
March 19, 1994—this Friday.
The new Student Council
move against aorority discrimination came from LSE PresP
dent Johann Stoyva, who declared at Monday night's Council
meeting, "Let'a take the wraps
off." *
His proposal, later passed, followed disagreement among Council members retarding a clause
in the Faculty Council memorandum ref using the student request. The contentious clause
stated that "the problem, does
not apply to aetoifoes- and only
to a few fratemitiea." *

Charity Committee Report

Camous charity drives should
be amalgamated into one all-

This Is .the congluaion of a

chairman of the Campus Charities Drive committee, in answer
to widesDread criticism of the

of the aame  oroblem.
Ud until a few years ago, the
reoort states, there was only

councils have allowed more and
more drives to be held  on  the

it Monday night.
The motion asks that Student
Council be given authority to bargain with the University "or any
other group" over the roof's construction, and "if necessary" offer to pay part of the roofs cost.
Money would come from the
SS now beinq taken from each
student's AMS fee to retire the
War   Memorial     Gymnasium
debt, now expected to be paid
off within two years.
Said   AMS   Treasurer   Allan
Goldsm'ith Monday:   "It would be
a shame if the pool went to waste.
This might happen if students are
not willing to pay for part of the
roof's cost."
All noon-hour events will be

every studerft to attend the general meeting, which will be built
around the following five issues:

Such a scheme would cost

An all-inclusive insurance
scheme would cost about $li

A plan offering incomplete
coverage (cost $4.12) was

down. More than half were
in favor of the scheme, but it

The    answer    is    anybody's
guess, bul if an insurance
scheme is again placed before
the students, it would probably   contain   these   features:
It would have to be compulsory. A voluntary scheme
could not  succeed.
It would be all-inclusive.
It would cover anything from
false teeth to operations, from
snorts injuries to a broken
leg suffered during the Christmas   holidays.
The AMS would probably
act as chims adiustors. This
would make for increased efficiency, since it would not
lie necessary to send claims

A Necessity
It is beginning to look as if students will have to go into
the building business again.
Students will be asked at Thursday's AMS meeting to
pay at least half of the cost of a roof on the swimming
It will involve no extra expense for students but will just
mean that yet another structure on the campus will be built
by student funds.
Students built the Women's Gym. They paid for Brock
Hall. Their money built the stadium. Student initiative and
money were responsible for the War Memorial Gym, and
now the concensus of opinion is that students will be "forced
into volunteering" to roof the British Empire Games pool.
The University was given the pool by the Society on the
understanding that UBC pay for the roof when the games
were over. Although no actual commitment in black and
white was made, the University has a definite moral obligation to put a roof on the structure which will deteriorate rapidly if left exposed to the weather. The pool must be roofed;
there is ho doubt about that fact.
Thjat leaves the Alma Mater Society, which is in a fairly
sound financial position, compared with the administration.
At present $5 of every student's $18 AMS fee goes to pay
off the War Memorial Gym debt. There is still $67,000 owing
on thatdebt. At the present rate of retirement, the debt will
be paid off in two years. That $5 building fund could then
be applied to retire the loan which the university will have
to make to pay for the roof.
Students should not be asked to roof the pool. Dr. MacKenzie has emphasized that point himself. But at the moment,
it seems the only alternative to letting $250,000 worth of pool
go to waste. At Thursday's meeting, Student Council will
impress on students that AMS financing of the pool will be a
last resort if all other possibilities fail.
The government has not yet announced a capital grant
td the University. When and if the grant comes, there may be
provisions made for funds to roof the pool. If that happens,
there will be no demand for student help.
But the possibility of government help is remote, and
Someone must supply the $150,000 necessary to build the
roof. Spokesmen from the administration have hinted that
the Board of Governors would attempt to raise half the money
if students would raise the other half. Students should sincerely consider the advantages of co-operating with the' administration on the problem, since the Board of Governors
has been contributing $10,000 per year toward payment of
the Gym debt.
All Council is asking is authority from students to borrow
money to pay half the cost of financing the roof if all other
plans fail.
Students shouldn't have to pay for the roof. The administration is not asking them to pay for the roof.
It's merely a matter of necessity-
One Little Word
Ever since his rise to international prominence, Senator
McCarthy has been touted as an honest two-fisted, clean-cut
Irish Marine who indulged in rough-house tactics only because
he was equipped with no other weapons for his sincere crusade against communism.
In his latest escapade, however Joe left his slip showing
briefly, just long enough to show that it was somewhat dirty
round the edges.
In his reply to President Eisenhower's statement on the
Peress case, McCarthy said: "Apparently the President
and I now agree on the necessity of getting rid of communists."
At first glance, the sentence only purports to say that
two men are agreed on a course of action, with a remote possibility that this has not always been so.
A slight hint, however, has never been enough for McCarthy. So, two hours after blaring it forth on television,
he issued an innocent little correction asking that the word
"now" be deleted from the statement, by insinuation leaving
Eisenhower as merely another unproven "security risk."
The quoted sentence sums up McCarthy and his work
perfectly—a fifteen-word feint of pure devout, unselfish anti-
communism followed by an effective one-word jab below the
McCarthy, in short, has conclusively proven himself to
be not a two-fisted fighter, but a sly two-bit shyster.
Static Or Dynamic?
Comparative irresponsibility and a complete indifference
to world affairs is to be expected in the newweomer to University life, but it is expecting too much to look for increased
responsibility and maturity as graduation approaches? Being
far-removed from centres of international tension is probably
a major reason, but it is dismaying to realise that not even
University Department Heads seem able to put forward new,
positive suggestions for progress towards our release from the
savage, outrageous tyranny of war.
The meeting of the United Nations Club last week, for instance, was reported without one single constructive thought.
It is generally realised, if not openly agreed, that the use of
force as a means of settling issues is,* prehistoric, illogical in
all reason, and a complete fallacy.
UBC is a very lively University, but must its tremendous
potentiality for contributing to real progress in human and
international understanding and conciliation be dissipated in
joining the mad scramble to outdo others in laying the products of thc finest minds at the feet of Mars?
Let us show the tired world that we are unwilling slavishly to think exactly as our fathers; fresh, fertile ideas and
attitudes enjoy a huge seller's market today, and, although
anything new inevitably meets with heavy opposition (usually it is the most valuable innovations that meet the heaviest
roadblocks), nothing can deter the forward march of real
progress, It is our privilege to encourage and take our
part in this progress.
M. David Ilynard,

Ever since the caveman picked up the
romantic stunt of towing his wench around by
the hair, mankind has had an unlimited capacity for developing fads.
In the eighteenth century it was wearing
low necked dresses and dueling, in the nineteenth century, wearing high cut dresses and disproving God, in the twentieth century . . . who
knows? We aren't through yet. But we've
got a good start.
In the twenties the big things were Flappers and making money so you could go bust
in tiie Depression. In the thirties it was going hungry and telling yourself that Hitler was
only a big noise. The fads of the forties were
cut short by a minor disturbance. But we're
back in the saddle again.
Yessir, Man lias picked up a little ace card
that he can use to take blame off his own shoulders, sound clever by talking about, and explain
to the wife why he lost the milk-money at Lans-
downe. This cute little piece of super-strategy is known as "blaming your environment",
or mpre specifically, society.
Although it is a pretty chicken method lo
use to ease one's way out of trouble's back door,
blaming society certainly has its points. Thc
force of society, sometimes hiding in the pants
of the mob, sometimes in the silk breeches of
the "leading men of the day", has been guilty
of some pretty stiff- crimes.
What would be the outcome if society were
hauled up in court? We now present a one-
act play, depicting the court scene of the mythical trial, starring some of history's and life's
leading actors.
Society itself; Judge, God (known to some
peoples as Buddah, Manitou, Jupiter, Oden and
other names); Defense attorney, Satan; prosecuting attorney, Bobby Greenleas (a victim of
victims of Society); jurors: the spirits of the
Four Winds and the Seven Seas and Father
Time: Baliff, an alcoholic; police, two dope addicts; crowd, a multitude of men cursed while
they lived, praised when they were dead.
Judges   Whom do we trial today?
Bailiffs A hardened criminal, sir, name
of Society.
Judeti But I thought I told you it was an
open and shut case.
•allffs Yes, sir, but the multitude said we
mutt take pity, for the world is now democratic.
Judges But this person never took pity on
we that are here.   However, show him in.
ENTER two policemen, dragging the unwilling Criminal, who is loudly screaming about
his rights, who in the hell thought up this
deal, and since when didn't the majority rule.
Judges (as, jyisoner stands before him, defiant) You have committed many crimes over
the years. Are you ready for the reckoning?
Societyi I ain't scared of you, hurry up
and say your piece so I can get back to creating misery.
THE CROWD boos and demands silence, a*,
the while waiving and "displaying a fearsome array of daggers, nooses, cups of poison, shouts,
threats of misunderstanding and ostrasization;
and even does a bit of stoning.
Judge (to the somewhat cowering Society):
Despite the fact that you are not facing your attackers with the same x bravery which they
faced you, are you ready to hear the charges?
Society! (nods head, silent but still sullen).
Judges You caused the Greek Philosopher
to commit suicide, you killed my son, you killed many of your benefactors, you have retarded progress and you have dared to make
laws in my name that I never intended. There
are many more but we have not the time to
relate them all. How do you plead, Guilty or
Not Guilty? .
Seoiety (screaming): Not Guilty! You ain't
gonna pin no rap on me. I'm me own boss.
Nobody tells me what to do, see!
Judges Guards! Control this craven. Jurors, retire to your chambers and determine
a verdict.   I charge you all to find him Guilty.
SCENE TWO: JURORS file back in and
take their places.
Judges   What is your verdict, gentlemen?
rather Time (rises to speak): Your Honor, we find the accused guilty. However, we
feel allowing him to go free is sufficient pun-
ishmeirt.   He is his own penalty.   He is insane'
Judges But surely we cannot let him go
free to repeat his crimes. He is too dangerous
to himself.
,_, 'Eft!* Tlm,> Aye> ilr> and he will harm
himself for 'many years yet, but perhaps tho
day will come when he is sane again.
^|»«  Very well.   Guards, let him go.
THE PRISONER yells loudly, throws the
ink bottle at the Judge and dashes for the door.
On the way out he kicks the guard in the shins
and swears at the assemblage. As he bursts
out on the courtroom steps he trips, bounces
to the bottom and comes to rest in a mud puddle.
He picks himself up and runs down the
street, breaking windows and looking for
somebody to blame for it all.

This Has A Moral
Once upon a time there were three little pigs who decided
to go out into the world to seek their fortune. The first thing
they had to do was build a house in which to live. Now to
build a house they needed wood and to get wood they had to
go into the big, dark forest.
But in the forest there lived a very ferocious wolf. If only
they could find some way to evade the wolf they could proceed in safety. While walking down the road pondering this
difficulty they chanced to meet a very beautiful young maiden,
sitting on the side of the road with tears in her eyes and
a huge fish bowl caught over her hand.
"Why are you crying?" asked the little pigs. *T am crying," said the maiden, "because the prince is holding a dance
for all the girls of the kingdom, and I cannot go because I have
this fish bowl stuck on my hand and because f have no fur robe
to wear."
"Well," said the little pigs, "if you help us to get our wood
we will try to help you to go to the dance."
And so it was that the maiden was to venture into the woods
in order to attract the attention of the wolf so that the pigs
could chop wood in safevty. As she wandered through the
woods she came upon a tiny house in a clearing. From the
window came a delicious arorryi. Apparently there was nobody home, so the young maiden opened *he door and went
inside. There she found the aroma was due to a large, freshly
baked apple pie.
Being rather hungry after her long walk in the woods she
sat down and ate the pie. Just then the owners of the house,
who were three bears, a poppa bear, a moma bear and a
"eensy, teensy baby bear, came home. When they saw that
the girl had eaten their pie they were so angijy that they chased
her out of the house and through the forest, a'screetchin' and
a-yelpin' after her.
While all this action was taking place the three little pigs
were busily chopping wood while unknown to them the green
eyes of the big bad wolf watched them. Suddenly and without warning he came down upon them a-whoopin' and a-hol-
lerin'. Now just at the very minute that the wojf came out
of the woods a-whoopin' and a-hollerin', the maiden dashed
into the clearing with loud cries.
Close behind her the three bears raced, a-screetchin* and
a-yelpin'. The three little pigs upon hearing all this commotion thought surely it was the end of the world and fainted
dead away! When the young maiden saw the pigs lying on the
ground she thought that the big bad woM had killed them
and she was so angry that she bopped him on the head with
her fish bowl, smashing it into a thousand pieces and killing
that nasty fellow.
About this time the pigs came to, and upon seeing the big
bad wolf dead, they were filled with glee, for now they were
free to gather as much wood as they needed without fear.
And the young maiden when she saw that she was free of her
fishbowl was also overjoyed. The bears, too, when they saw
. all this happiness decided to forgive the girl and join in the
Thc Poppa bear built a huge banfire, while the pigs skinned the dead wolf. As the sun sank slowly in the west a happy
little party was seen sitting around the fire eating roast wolf
while the beautiful young maiden danced gayly down the road
on her way to the prince's ball dressed in a stunning robe of
wolf skin.
The moral of this story is a lesson to be learned by all,
namely "A stitch ih time is a horse of another colour."
"My dear boy," said Horatio Decidendi, (Arts 4, Philosophy major), "You must know that everything is relative:
religion, morals, propriety of sexual behavior, religion and
God—all relative, you know."
"But look here," I (Arts 1) objected, "you can't mean that,
sir. I know my parents are a little old-fashioned, and maybe take too, ah— narrow a view/of things, but, after all, a
moral code of some sort is.. . ."
"Nonsense, my boy," he said. "I realize, of course, you
are quite young, but you will get over that, I assure you.
Moral codes, you know, are merely the result of intellectual
slothfulness, hardened into lazy habit. You speak of moral
codes as though there were something quite fixed and perma-
ment values involved.
"Now you know, there are as many standards of behavior
as there are communities that have developed any individuality. And who are you to say your particular set of values
has any superiority over that of others. It's all relative,
my boy, all relative, no one can say his particular code is
'right' or 'best'."
"But, I stuttered, "you mean to say for Instance the 'code'
of the Borneo Headhunters is as good as . . ."
"Why, certainly, my boy. You see, it's a matter of viewpoint, depends upon where you are and therefore . . ."
And so he spoke on and on. I ran out of arguments, I
was overwhelmed and I finally agreed, it's all relative.
Last night at 1 a.m. I sneaked into his room, knocked him
on the bead, dragged him down to the shore, tied a rock to his
neck and pitched the body into the sea.
Relatively speaking, I felt pretty j,ood.

Students Told Liquor Use
Reflects Tensions Of Society
Alcoholism is rapidly becoming one of the most serious of
the world's health problems.
Heightened tension of 20th

bv the increased use of liquor
in social life, said Arthur W.
Cowlev. executive director of
the B.C. Alcohol Research Council, in a noon talk before students Mondav.
In the atudv of alcoholism we
have been "looking at a bottle
instead of a man." said Cowley.
He emphasized that it is a
personality defect which leads
the individual to alcoholism.

personality, often a result of

memorandum, which states the
reasons for the decision:
"The Faculty Council at its
meeting on Tuesday, March 9,
1954, considered the resolutions
forwarded by Students' Council having to do with discriminatory clauses in the constitutions of the Fraternities and Sororities represented on the UBC
"The Faculty Council heard a
report from a subcommittee,
which had discussed the substance of the resolutions with
representatives of the fraternities and the Inter-Fraternity
"The sub-committee reported
that, to the best of their knowledge this matter did not apply
to sororities on the campus and
to only a few of the fraternities.
"The sub-committee further
reported that the Inter-Fraternity Council had, prior to this
discussion and on ita own initiative, twice recorded its disapproval of discriminatory clauses
and had volunteered to help the
few remaining fraternities eliminate the clauses. The sub-committee also reported that it was
informed that the student members of all Fraternities on the
campus were actively engaged
in trying to get their international organizations to remove discriminatory clauses, and that
progress was being made. One
fraternity had removed its discriminatory clauses last year,
and others seemed likely to do
so within the very near future.
"The Faculty Council in considering the report of the subcommittee deplored the practice
of discrimination on grounds of

but roofing of the $250,000 pool
has been left up to the University.
If the administration cannot
entirely pay for the roof,
students should be willing to
help, according to the Student
Council motion to be presented
at the meeting.   It reads:
"WHERfiAS it is in the best
interests of the University and,
the Alma Mater Society to
commence construction of a
roof to the memorial (BEG)
Swimming Pool as soon as
possible after the British Empire Games of 1954 in order
to prevent deterioration of a
valuable asset, and to pro- j
vide immediate use of a swimming pool for the University
and the adjacent community;
event that the University cannot raise sufficient funds to
commence immediate construction it is desirable that the Alma Mater Society be in the position, if necessary, to take the
appropriate action to ensure
that a roof will be constructed Immediately:
"AND WHEREAS a swimming pool is part of the approved plans of the War Memorial Gymnasium for which
the students have already allocated $5 out of the AMS fee;
"THEREFORE be it resolved that the Student Council be given authority to negotiate with the Universiy or
any other party to ensure the
roofing of the swimming pool,
and, if necessary, to borrow
additional funds on the security of fees already allocated to
the War Memorial Gymnasium and Pool."
Students would not have to
pay for the full cost of the roof,
said Treasurer Goldsmith. "The

with President MacKenzie," he

As 'Hopelessly Inadequate'
The recent $200,000 budget grant to UBC was rejected as
"hopelessly inadequate" by the campus CCF Club in their annual spring meeting March 11.   •
The club called for a $10 million capital grant to start UBC's
much needed building program
and alleviate hazardous student
housing conditions."
A telegram was sent to Arnold
Webster, CCF leader of the opposition in Victoria, acquainting
him with the club's views.
Rem6val of tax on texts books
was called for, and a resolution
was passed scoring censorship
and bookburning as "dangerous

alleviate the situation."

However, we got this fine pool on one condition, and it is a big
condition—that the University roof the pool.
' ;-    It will cost approximately $150,000 to protect our swimmers
from the elements.   That isn't a terrific amount of money for a
roof, but to the University of British Columbia, in its present
financial condition, it might as well be a $150,000,000.
In simpler terms—we ain't got the dough.
There is only cne possible way that the administration can
roof the pool. If the University gets a large capital grant from
the Provincial government then the problem will be solved.
But it is extremely doubtful that a large grant is forthcoming.
And even if we do get a grant it will probably be explicitly earmarked for residences, an arts' building and a medical sciences
That leaves it, in case you haven't already guessed, up to
the students. The War Memorial Gym, the Women's Gym and
prock Hall were all largely paid for by the students and now
it is up to us once again. If the pool, is going to be roofed it
is going to have to be from the money contributed by the students.
Either the students put up the money or UBC is going to
have the fanciest skating rink in the world. Imagine what the
press will say if, after a bitter fight with the Vancouver Swim
Club, UBC gets the pool and then cannot roof it. My ears are
burning already.
Here is how the students can roof the pool.
Five dollars of your AMS fees are allocated to finish paying for the War Memorial Gym. At present we still owe
$67,000 and it will be two more years before it is paid off.
The Board of Governors has also contributed to the Gym fund
to the tune of $10,000 every year for the last five years.
Once again the Board of Governors is willing to help the !
students by putting up $75,000 of the $150,000 required for the ,
roof. That means the students have to put up the other $75,000. |
This can be done by borrowing the money on the security of the |
five dollars that we are presently paying for the gym. In other.
words, the f've dollars that you are now paying for the Gym,
will, in two years be diverted to roofing the pool. j
A motion to this effect will be put on the floor of Thursday's
General Meeting, and we sincerely urge all students to turn out
and vote for it. Remember your fees will not be raised by on,? second fmme
cent, you will just enable the AMS to borrow enough monev
to roof the pool on the security ol' the money that you are already paying.
