Kangaroo Court Caught
In Campus Cloudburst
Safest place for Frosh was Kangaroo Court.
The briar patch for unattired Frosh yesterday was in the
forest of umbrellas covering the mob which amassed before
Kangaroo Court.
The  mock   court,   set  up   in
front of the Arts Building, enabled Upperclassmen to formally
initiate Freshmen into University life by traditional hazing

The Vancouver International Festival might have drawn
more student audiences had there been student rates this
year. _ * ■—■ ;—
This is the opinion held by
many UBC students who because
of the admittance chargetto the
Festival events, were forced to
miss many, if not all of them.

Clubs Must Vie
For Share of Pie
Delegates to Thursday's
general meeting of U.C.C. were
told that allocation of moneys
to clubs will depend on their
budget estimates.
Jack Swanson, U.C.C. treasurer, said at the meeting yesterday,
"If you want your share of the
pie, your application "must be
submitted by  next Monday."
Size of grdnts to clubs will
depend on first estimate.
However, a fully itemized
budget of every club must be
handed in one week after clubs'
day, Oct. 3, said Swanson.
All new clubs are warned
that they will not be considered
members of U.C.C, unless they
submit their constitution to
U.C.C. for approval.
Mr. Swanson said that any
club requiring cash for their
display may receive a twenty
dollar advance if needed.
Any club which has not yet
applied for space on clubs' day
is asked to see Harvey Smith at
the A.M.S. office.
duced rate for students."
And Brian McDermott, 2nd
year Arts, comments: "Student
rates would certainly increase
my interest in performances I
was not so enthusiastic about."
However, many students will
not take advantage of student
rates, should there be any.
A more extensive publicity
programme coupled with special
rates might be the answer to
increasing interest and attendance.
Mr. P. H. Bennet, Administrative Director of the Festival, explains that because next year's
Festival programme is undecided
no positive plans for the proposed rates can be given at this
"We are very keen to have
student rates if it is possible,"
says Mr. Bennet. "To what
events they will apply, and
similar arrangements, have yet
to be made."

"Hazing is fun even in the
rain," said bewildered Carol
Hambleton, "but why," she
asked, "are the engineers and
the aggies the only faculties
that really participate?"
Doris Maceluch, another frosh,
suggested the freshmen sponsor
a revolt against upper classmen
/on the .next rainy day.
One objection to hazing was^
"It's too short."
A few very sympathetic girls'■■
thought that they were treated
with due respect but they objected to the rough treatment
that the more unfortunate males
were getting.
"They're too mean to the boys,
they might get sick," murmured
Irene Malnar.
Several   girls   said   they   felt"
insulted, the engineers apparently had rushed past them to recruit a' mass of boys for   their

Frosh i Regalia or not, accepted
with good humour the judgment
of their upper classmen.
Although the legality of the
court may be doubted, the effectiveness of the penalties given
out cannot bp questioned.
Many a freshman had his
spirits "dampened" by dunkings
in the Engineers' water tank,
after being summarily tried by
the court composed of Senior
Law Students.
Later, - when the court adjourned, in the company of some
young co-eds, the Engineers and
Aggies dispensed with justice
and "baptised" as many Frosh
into Varsity as they could find.
Only occasional retaliations by
loosely - organized Freshmen
stopped the Engineers.
The majority of Freshmen resigned themselves to their fates
and  participated' in   Hazing  as
a good clean sport.
Rain did ■ not dampen the
spirits of UBC's freshettes: they
love hazing.
Thursday's cloudburst just added to the fun of University initiations according to interviews
with UBC's female freshmen.
Sharon Beckett, an exuberant
frosh, was happy despite her torn
coat and drenched appearance.
She claimed she had just "beat
up the engineers."

Herman and Melvin Millions,,
famed as the ugliest twin
brothers on campus, today told
an astonished Ubyssey reporter
that they definitely will not attend  the  Frosh  Reception.
"Herman won't take me," retorted Melvin, when asked the
reason for his refusal to go.
Everyone else though, will be
going to the Armories this Saturday night, where the Frosh Reception will be held.
Tickets are $2.00 if you are
a freshman, $2.50 if an upper-
clasman. Your dates may tag
along for the same price.
Music for dancing will be provided by Ted Lazenby and his
JazzSoc   orchestra.
Dress is Semi-Formal.
For those who have not purchased tickets they are still
available at the Alma Mater
Society Office in Brick Hall.

picture taken for registration.
Those pictures are used for
your AMS card which, apart
from bestowing upon you the
right to vote in . campus elections, provides the handy side
benefit of reducing the admission price to various downtown
movie houses.
Many late registrants and
graduate students who avoided
the crush of the Armouries'
registration mill, have also inadvertently avoided having
this useful little picture snapped.
Three times have been arranged during the next month
in which these students may rectify this situation. They are:

We doubt it very much.
Yet this is the position into which two of the Ubyssey's
three top editors will be put.
The editor-in-chief receives payment of his fees in full.
This is presumably because it is felt by those in authority,
that the work load borne by this editor warrants remuneration. To this we agree.
However, the posts of both managing editor and news
editor require just as much time and effort, yet they receive
considerably less in the way of an honorarium than does their

Another International Games
is over, and once again Canadian sports writers are left
with the gloomy prospects of
analysing the results. At the
Pan American Games this summer, Canada came a poor
fourth with only seven gold
medals, contrasted with the one
hundred and twenty-one gold
medals won by the United
Why So. Poor?
Many of us scoff at the
United States for its soft living; but in order to have the
same relative number of gold
medals, on a population basis,
Canada required almost twice
as many medals as she actually
won. Why, then, was our show
ing so poor?
In my opinion, it is because we Canadians are too
damn self-satisfied with a
second rate performance. Too
many athletes went to the
Games in the hope and expectation that, when they came in
second, or third, or even last,
someone would come up and
pat them on the back and say,
"Bad luck, but a jolly good
fight. Better luck next time."
New Sports Council
Many Canadians now look
hopefully towards the new
sports council proposed by
John Taylor, MP, as the solution to the Canadian amateur
sports dilemma. It will, I feel
sure, do much to improve the
conditions under which athle-
tes train; and this is certainly
very important. However,
many sports events have been
won by those who trained under the most adverse conditions. The case of the U.B.C.
Olympic Gold" Medal Four is a
prime example of that.
No Second Place
Much more important is
that athletes be instilled with
the desire not to be good, not
even to be the best in Canada,
but to be the best that it is
humanly possible for them to
be. For any athlete worthy of
the  title,   there   is   no  second
place. He either wins or he
loses. This does not mean that
he gives up if he sees that he
cannot win; for he knows that
whatever happens, he must give
all that he is capable of giving.
The day that more Canadian*
athletes have this attitude, will
be the day that Gold Medals
really start to flow in ouf
