DEFENDING HIS ACTION in challenging the quorum
at Thursday's General Meeting, Aggie President Bill Davis
states his case to a knot of spectators at the close of
Thursday's abortive Meeting. Just after a Ubyssey phto-
grapher snapped this picture, AMS Treasurer Al Thackray
pointed a finger at Davis and shouted, "That's the stupidest thing I've seen in six years, Pill."

Thackray, Davis
Argue Heatedly
Charges and counter-charge, voiced by Agricultural Undergraduate Society president Bill Davis, and AMS treasurer
Al Thackray, were heard following the collapse of Thursday's
General Meeting. Printed below are Davis' motives in challenging the quorum, and Thackray's response to them.
DAVIS: I spoke with Thackray last April about this year's
budget. At the time I asked
that the AUS grant be increased from the $174 of last year,
to $800 this year. This was to
support the proposed increase in
the number of AUS functions
this year.
THACKRAY: 1 have at no
time received a proper budget
from the AUS.
DAVIS: After a USC meeting
1620-R or leave your name  in j on the tenth of October, I learn-
in   Interna- ecj that  the  grant to AUS this
J year would be $1140.
THACKRAY: On the fifteenth
of   October,   three   days   before
L^nUrai.0 ^ux, w... »-»|the generai meeting, I received
he,r  1,Wt   ™C"lg  ™  MT^' budget   from  the  AUS.   It  was
ed.  "No one has ever come in
and not gotten money."
"Efficiency For
Democracy" Hit
The shortest AMS General Meeting in years came to
an abrupt halt Thursday   when   Aggie President Bill
Davis challenged the quorum,.
Charging the Students' Council was substituting "efficiency for democracy" Davis continued to challenge the
quorum despite pleas from Council president Don Jabour
and boos and catcalls from the audience, until Jabour had
to rule "no meeting."
It lasted six minutes and eighteen seconds.
Davis was dissatisfied with AMS treasurer Al Thackray's "meagre budget" allocation to the Agricultural Un>...
dergraduate Society.
Before approximately 850 students Davis broke into
Jabour's remarks with "Mr. Chairman, I challenge the
Jabour explained that to call another General Meeting would cost the AMS, and indirectly all present, another $300. Davis again challenged.
After a hurried talk with AMS Treasurer Al Thackray,
Davis came back to microphone and said, "Mr. Thackray
has just promised us more money if we don't challenge the
quorum. Again I challenge the quorum."
A plea was made for all standing to sit down in the
1,140 chairs, exactly the number required for the quorum.
Approximately 300 were still vacant and Jabour reluctantly closed the meeting.
"The stupidest thing I've seen in six years" commented
Thackray after the meeting. He charged that Davis believes in a "pseudo-democracy."
Jabour said that he will wait two weeks for a petition
for another general meeting. If one isn't received "we will
adopt the budget at a meeting of the council." This statement was met with boos from the audience.
The budget and other matters were to have been taken
up at the meeting. Monies will be available to campus
organizations for a short while but the budget must be
passed by a general meeting to be effective.
Lack of issues and poor publicity were blamed by
some for the poor turnout. This charge was dismissed by
Ian Smyth, Public Relations Officer for the AMS, Smyth
said that "this meeting has reecived as much publicity
as any other (general) meeting.
"The fact that there has been no major issue as has
been the case in the past accounts for the lack of student
interest. Now that there is an issue we can expect student
interest for ensuing General Meetings."

PUBBE—FRIDAY. Well, here
I am looking out over the forbidden oceans of foaming
brew, and thinking . . . only
seven more days.
Gosh, doesn't the time fly.
It seems like only yesterday
that Frank Gnup asked me if
I would attempt the treacherous swim across the Lily Pond.
Golly. I am a bit scared,
but Frankie tells me its all in
my mind. AH I've got to do is
just keep telling myself that
I'm going to do it. This is the
hardest challenge I've ever had
to meet, but I know that if I"
pray real hard and if I listen
to everything Frank tells me,
well, golly, I'll just make it.
And everybody's been so
nice to me — especially the
newspaper that's sponsoring
me. And that little old man
who runs the Pubbe told my
girl friend, Barbara (isn't she
nice, she came all the way out
here with me) that he was just
sure I'd make it. Barbara said
that she'd even jump in the
water with me it' I made it.
Well, I guess I'd better start
telling you how Frankie's making me train. He's putting ten-
pound weights on my feet and
making me swim against a
six knot current, two hours
per day. Today, aftei warming
up with a couple of trips across
Juan de Fuca Straits, we went
through the Usual two hour
grind in Empire Pool.
You know, away out there,
I think that this is just what
God meant me to do. I just
know He won't betray me at
the last moment. When I think
I haven't got any more
strength left in me, I just look
at Frankie sitting shivering in
the boat, and I just know that
God is with us.
Golly, thanks for reading all

Views Of The Meeting:
Nobody Is Satisfied
Fall Fiasco
Thursday's General Meeting was a case-study in political
irresponsibility. Never before has this campus been treated
to such an appalling display of apathy and obstructive stupidity. Students' Council, the student body at large, and most
of all, the Agricultural Undergraduate Society must all share
responsibility for yesterday's legislative abortion.
The AUS and its President, Bill Davis, ought to be ashamed of themselves. By challenging the quorum, they deliberately sabotaged the due process of student government,
and did their own cause—which, by the way, we think was
justified—irreparable harm.
By aborting the General Meeting, the Aggies are guilty
ol one of the most disgracefully obstructive—and certainly
one of the stupidest—political actions this campus has ever
Davis gives three reasons for challenging the quorum.
First, he says, he challenged it for the simple reason that
no quorum was present. It is regrettable but true that an
insufficient number of students attended the Meeting; but
this fact alone-is hardly adequate justification for wasting
$300 of AMS money, and halting the progress of essential
AMS business. Like all Parliamentary checks and balances,
the device of challenging the quorum must be used with discretion. The AUS action was stupendously indiscreet.
Next, Davis says, he challenged the quorum to give
AUS more time to present their financial grievances to
AMS Treasurer Al Thackray. They didn't have enough time
before the Meeting, Davis says. This is palpable nonsense.
In the same eight-day period, another campus organization
with money troubles, ASUS, somehow found time to protest to Thackray, to USC, and finally to Students' Council.
And ASUS got satisfaction. The AUS, on the other hand,
did nothing. Instead, they waited until Thursday, then shot
the General Meeting down in flames.
In addition, Davis blames AMS President Don Jabour
for predicting a dull General Meeting. This encouraged
poor attendance, Davis says. This may be true, but we still
can't see the virtue of magnifying non-existent issues, in
a hopeful bid for attendance at General Meetings.
However, Council was, to say the least, shtw in not
realizing that a "get out and vote" publicity campaign should
have been instituted for the Meeting. AMS, PRO Ian Smyth
has rightly pointed out that controversial issues are a
General Meeting's best publicity. But in the absence of
controversial isues, shouldn't something else be substituted?
We think so. We think Students' Council should have seen
to it that the General Meeting received al least as much publicity as a Mussoc production or a blood drive normally
And finally, the student body at largo shares much of
the responsibility for Thursday's fiasco. It's a shame that
UBC's student body can't be persuaded to help run their
own affairs by attending two General Meetings a year. Apparently, students are so lacking in the civic virtues that
only a high-powered publicity campaign or the prospect of
a parliamentary circus will induce them to to see what happens to half a million dollars of their money. We would
hate to see UBC's hard-won student autonomy be lost by default, but Thursday'; Meeting makes such a prospect seem
Oh well,- maj'be we'll all dp, better in the Spring.
Views on Thursday's
General Meeting
ranging from AMS
Treasurer Thackray's
bitter denunciation
of Bill Davis, to
WAD President Char
Warren's cheerful
exposition of the
women's athletes'
"victory" are printed
on this page.
'Davis' Pseudo-Democracy': Thackray
'Warren's Happy'
It was tremendous to see the
women out at today's General
Meeting. Perhaps this will
show the campus as a whole
that women are interested in
their own Alma Mater Society.
The reason we, as women,
were out, was because we wanted to ask for $4,000, which is
in fact, less than 3 per cent of
the total AMS Budget.
After the meeting, a delegation approached the AMS treasurer, Al Thackray. Mr. Thackray lias now agreed to give us
two-thirds of the increase we
were originally asking, $3,500,
with the hopes of a further $500
as we have the assurance of
first call on the distribution of
surplus after Christmas.
After the dissolution of today's meeting, over one hundred valid signatures were collected, enough to force our issue for another general meeting. However, wc are now
satifiod with Mr. Thackray's
proposal to the extent that another general meeting is both
unecessary. uneconomical, and
"Efficiency for Democracy."
Thus by the pseudo democratic act of Bill Davis. 3rd vice-
president of the Farmers Union,
the curtain was rung down on
the 1956 Fall General Meeting.
Mr. Davis would be well advised to raise his brow above
thc Manure pile in an attempt
to understand of what our democracy is composed of. Our
democratic form of government
on the campus designed to inflict the wishes of the majority
of thc students. By his unpopular motion of a notice which allows no debate and is thus an-
alagous to a veto, Bill Davis
robbed the students of the opportunity to voice their opinions.
The women of this University attended that meeting so as
to express their displeasure at
the amount of monies allocated
to Women's athletics. This they
had  a  right  to do,  but  under
the veil of democracy, Mr. Davis denied them this opportunity.
And Mr. Davis should "look
to his own house." Thc Aggie
undergrad Society promoted
the action of Mr. Davis at the
meeting because they were "dissatisfied" with their budget.
But, when the Aggies were
asked (the "ask" being the democratic word for "force" to
submit a budget they failed to
do so.
. On October 15 I received
from AUS a group of figures
in the mail—this was their
"budget." This was also five
months after the deadline for
budgets and two weeks after
the AMS budget had been printed and ratified by the AMS.
Under Mr. Davis' form of democracy, I would think it very
fitting to charge his or her
organization with the S350 cost
of setting up the Armoury for
another general meeting.
'Don't Peddle Democracy': Smyth
What price democracy?
If yesterday's AMS General
Meeting is an indication of
current market trends, UBC
students can expect to pay approximately $50 per minute
to ensure preservation of their
It can be argued that a product selling at that price requires an intensive advertising campaign. Which brings
up the traditional question of
student apathy toward general
meetings and at the same time
poses another — doe-; democracy at UBC have to be peddled like soap?
General meetings have, in
the past, received their publicity by virtue of the issues
they have contained.    It is un
fortunate that Thursday's meeting had no such drawing card
but this is no excuse for the
poor attendance.
According to a poll conducted by Ubyssey reporters, 85
per cent of students questioned
were aware of the general
meeting. In view of the fact
that no other activities are
scheduled during the time allotted to the meeting, these
figures indicate a potential attendance of 6400. One fifth of
that potential constitutes a
quorum.    Where w;ere they?
Do we have to beat drums
and give away door prizes to
get students out to watch $500,-
000 of their money distributed?
To approve amendments to
the constitution of their government?    We  wonder,

Last night as I sat with my

Your reference "to a bright
young man in the Physics dept.
who owns every record Elvie
over made" seemed to describe
or implicate me. at least to a
rough approjimation. It is perhaps then incumbent upon me
to raise a modest shield in defense of that towering radio,
movie, TV performer and presidential candidate by popular
request against your dwarfish
diatribe and pigmy pen-pricks.
I should eagerly (though most
humbly) accept your polemical
challenge it I deemed that your
aggressive article deserved retaliation or the "strange phenomenon" of E. Presley required

however that on Oct. 28 your
pathetic please and smug slurs
will receive a devastating-rebuttal and irrefutable verdict when
thousands of U.B.C. students
tune Iheir home TV sets to the
Ed Sullivan show for Mr. Presley's second appearance.
Meanwhile allow me to temper your teen-age tantrums and
tabloid-type tirade with a few-
words of admonition.
While you "wait and hope
you won't be affected too hy
the creeping rot" may I suggest
you take the production of Moliere's comedy "Tartuffe." As
you may know, it harasses witli
humor a biggoted and fanatical
religious clique thatsets itself
up as a censor of morals. I am
sure Moliere intended to ridicule as well all self-anointed
pontiffs and aelt-appointed supreme justices of culture, art
and  forms of equipment.
Sir, I'm counting on You in
your future editorial release
(pr escape) not to add another
decibel to the editorial clamor
against Mr. Presley and to resume your former eloquent silence on The Subject. At any
rate, Mr Editor, Don't be Cruel
to Elvis and treat him like an
old Hound Dog. After all his
"appearance in the national

herds of editors afflicted by
a heartbreaking lack of inspiration and originality with a rare
occasion for indignant and outraged squawking on the con-

Latest statistics on enrollment
reveal there is only one gal for

Things are looking up though,
for with the help of the new College of Education the female population has increased 3.6 per

by 1980, even those without cars
will be having dates.
A quick scan of the overall

seven. All the other faculties
managed to gain'proportionally,
with the biggest share, 197, going
to Arts and Science.
In the faculty of Applied Science, the Engineers grew in numbers by 132, and added one more
Enginerette for a total of three.
The nurses, topped by 38 more
pulse-takers, swelled the grand
total to 1345.
Following the general trend,
the Lawyers uppcd their numbers by 18 to 231 members,
while Commerce totalled 51
over last year at 578. Pharmacy
copped 144 members, as the Faculty of Graduate Studies, with
its growth mainly due to the
members who are taking courses
not leading to a degree, reached
348, 45 more than a year ago.

Nearly 500 girls attended the meeting especially to
vote down the budget if they didn't get an increased grant,
for women's athletics.
"Davis missed his big opportunity," said Shiela King*
ham, "because the assembly was almost entirely made up
of the Aggies and the women. The budget would have been
voted down unanimously."
Davis said that the rest of the Aggies "are solidly
behind me." He added that Jabour "knew that there wasn't
« quorum and he should have called for the meeting off."
"They call us farmers," Davies added.
Plans to secede from the AMS had been discussed by
the Aggies. "We don't want to get out but if we have to
we will."
Members of the Students' Council were for the most
part disappointed by the result of the meeting. Reactions
ranged from a terse "No comment" by Don Jabour to
"Jeez" by Lynda Gates.
In an interview later Jabour indicated that in view
of the number who did turn out he felt justified in trying
to keep the meeting going. In past meetings, business has
been carried out with not quite a quorum present.

"There is no evidence of un
ivefsal belief in one supreme
being," said Professor Wyne Suiter speaking on art in primitive
religion, "Nor is there in the
universe a battleground between forces of good and evil."
"Art and religion are concepts of western civilization.
Art implies pleasing form,
while religion is either super-
naturalism, or a set of beliefs,
ideals, and goals to which the
individual responds emotionally."
"The classical distinction between magic and religion is;
Magic is a technique for compelling the supernatural, whereas religion is a technique for imploring  the  supernatural."
There may be in primitive
society a close relationship between the supernatural and the
artist. "But as for a universal
symbolism," stated Professor
Wayne," I think the most likely
answer is negative."

"Our main problem is height,"
he explains.

three-time all-Conference forward John McLeod, and the
Birds other big man, 6'5" centre

But among newcomers and vet-
(Editor's Note: The following article, written by Women's
Athletic Directorate Public Relations Officer Joan Crocker,
represents the official view of the WAD in the current Women'9
Athletics budget controversy. It should not be construed as
reflecting the opinions of the Sports Editor.)
At yesterday's General Meeting 500 organized women
gathered on hehalf of women athletes to protest the insufficient $2,800 which Women's Athletics was supposed to receive
in this year's budget. Because of the lack of Quorum, they
dd not havo a chance to voice their protest openly. But it
still exists. Tho women on campus feel that $2,800 is not
enough  for WAD to function properly.
Behind the scenes, this protest has excited enthusiasm
from all involved, including students and faculty. Philips,
Osborne, Laithwaite, MAC, WAC, and the whole Athletic
Faculty, all agree that women's athletics need the money,
and should get it, but where from?
The main reason for the past neglect of women's sports,
has been the fact that not enough women participate to war-
rent serious attention. At the present time, the facts point
in the other direction—18% of the total female enrollment
participate as compared to 19% participation of the men.
Originally WAD asked council for $8,000, every dollar
of which was to be put to a definite legitimate use. WAD President Char Warren, feels that with their present $2,800 grant,
WAD will barely be able to get by with the essentials needed
to maintain 14 extra-mural teams, and 55 intramural teams.
This programme will exclude team travelling, coach expenses
and added equpiment.
The question of more money for women's athletics was
brought to the Athletic Committee by Helen Eckert, of the
Physical Education staff. In view of the rapidly developing
women's athletic programme, Miss Eckert believes that women's athletics should receive a larger grant.
On behalf of the Physical Education departmen. Mr.
Laithwaite stated: "The Department is only too pleased to see
women's athletics receive more money, if they can get it."
That is the problem. Under the present system of grants to
Athletics, WAD will not get their extra $4,700.
There is not $4,700 in excess.
Ray Osborne, Athletic Head, believes that the urgent
need for added funds pertains not only to women's athletics,
but Athletics as a while, and would like to see the per capita
policy brought back into existence. As he says "There is no
major university on this continent which can operate on as
small an athletic budget as ours."
At Eastern College, which has a total enrollment of 1,500
students, athletics receive $5.80 per head each quarter. Queen's
University, of 3,000 students, allows $15 per student for sports
and free admission to all games. As has been suggested the ideal
situation at UBC would be $10 per student given to athletics,
but even $5 per student would alleviate some of the strain.
Bus Philips, Director of Athletics, admtited that men's
athletics are now operating on a "shoe string" basis, and feels
that the per capita policy would be much fairer to all concerned.
Whatever way we look at it,  the  University of British |
Columbia is expanding each year, and so is its sports programme. As it now stands, both men's and  women's sports
need more money each year in order to satisfactorily equip,
coach and maintain their rapdly growing teams.
If the $3.60 per capita is kept, the $3.60 per head will I
not cover the needs of Athletics. It is inevitable that the allotment to MAD and WAD per person  (if one exists)  would |
j have to be increased as student population goes up.
!        At last year's General Meeting, thc $5 per person for ath-
iletics   (including   free   athletic   card)   was   outvoted   by   the
students asemblcd. The only way in which Athletics will be
able to function efficiently in the future, is for the $5 pcr|
capita policy to be voted in.
