USC To Ask Students For Veto Power
Undergraduate Societies Committee may be given
the power to veto any motion passed by Student Council
if a proposed amendment to the AMS constitution is adppt*-
ed by students at the Spring General Meeting.
According to an amendment proposed by Bill Tracey,
Applied Science 4, a negative vote by USC chairman, who
is a student council member, would have the effect of
blocking a motion for two weeks.
If, after USC studies the motion and still instructs its'
chairman to vote against it, his vote is in effect, a veto.
The motion could then be repealed only by Faculty Council or the decision of a general meeting.
This proposal has arisen out of the disagreement between student council and USC cover powers of USC. A
clause already in the USC constitution, and proposed
amendment }o it, give USC the power to overrule council
The existing USC constitution states that... "any
motion passed in USC which... is not passed by students
council, becomes binding as if it has been passed by
Students' Council if it is moved and passed a second time
at the next meeting of USC subject to ratifications "by the
student body at a general meetlng^of the AMS if Students
Council so desires."
USC has proposed a revision stating that a motion
passed by USC but turned down by Students Council
becomes binding if passed again in USC by a proportional
vote. Under this prpposal Student Council must call a
general meeting to reject such a motion, which would
remain in effect meanwhile.
USC feels, however, that if this power is not abused
it would be a good thing as USC represents more students
than student council. In case of a disagreement with
council the undergraduate societies would poll their members and act on their decision.
^Monte McKay, former USC chairman, said that "USC
is a more representative group, and should be able to
overrule council in extreme cases. This isn't a power which
would be abused."
USC is composed of representatives from all undergraduate societies on campus and in that all students belong
to an undergraduate society, USC maintains that it is more
representative than council.
Arts students, with the exception of Frosh, do not
belong to an undergraduate society. The AUS was abolished last year as a result of lack of interest.

Constitutional Change
Increases Court Power
Student Council Monday night approved proposed constitutional changes which will increase the powers of Student
Court and reduce the duties of the Investigating Committee.
The boys and girls in Mamooks would appreciate it
very much if the Open House
people would put some of the
energy they displayed prior
to March 9 into returning
paints, brushes, and a bit of
hard cash.
What with the end of the
year approaching, Mamooks
would like to start balancing
its books, and the payment of
bills would help.
The request also applies to
the clubs that made use of
thc poster club's facilities.
USC .Votes
To Retain
Fall Meeting
Undergraduate Societies Committee has voted near unanimous
disapproval of Student Council's
proposal to abolish the fall general meeting.
Of the eleven societies represented at Monday's meeting, ten
expressed disapproval of the pro-
j posed     constitutional     revision
with Commerce abstaining.
Council members Don Jabour
! and Ron Longstaffe attended the
I meeting    to    explain    Council's
stand on ihe revision.
EUS representative Bill Tracy
said, "The representatives had
sufficient knowledge of the feelings of thc Societies to vote for
them on this matter."
Cheerleaders for next
year's games will be chosen by
March 31 after a series of trial
practices. Those interested are
urged to contact Diana Lam, at
KErr.  5031   before  Tuesday.
As the AMS by-law on discipline now stands, all charges go
directly to the Investigating
Committee appointed by the
Undergraduate Societies Committee. This Committee rules on
the validity of the charge and
it is then taken to Student Court.
Under the new system charges
will go directly to Student Court
which will rule on the validity
and then, if the Court so desires,
the charge will be given to the
Committee for further investigation.
The Student Court or the Investigating Committee will be
required to submit reasons when
a charge is dropped and present
them to the complainant.
"The investigations would be
for the purpose of substantiation
and not necessarily to prove
guilt. Even after investigation
ihe Court does not have to make
a charge," said Wendy Sutton,
chairman of the Constitutional
Revisions Committee.

'No Clauses' Writes
Secretary In Letter
Campus sororities have refused to establish a committee
to investigate discrimination within their ranks.
This was revealed in a report
'tween classes
by the Alma Mater Society committee on discrimination, which
at the same time recommended
its work be continued by a reorganized committee.
The    new    AMS    committee
would consist of the Undergraduate   Societies   chairman,   one

establish a similar committee to
that set up by the Inter-Fraternity Council was contained in a
reply to USC chairman Jim Killeen by Pan-hellenic secretary
Anne Cassady.

set up last year, show that there
are no discriminatory clauses in

Now,  Sororities
The Pan-Hellenic letter lo the Alma Mater Society
committee on discrimination has all the chill of a March wind.
Up to now, the £-limate surrounding the battle against discrimination has been quite good.
Fraternities have shown they are clearly opposed to
bigotry and are indeed taking steps of some sort to combat
it. The IFC report on discrimination was in many respects
unsatisfactory, but it promised continued opposition to racial
and religious prejudice, and revealed for the first time the
extent of "gentlemen's agreements" and allied forms of
prejudice—even though the names of those guilty were
discreetly withheld,
The AMS committee itself has shown by its report that
it has been active in the fight, despite its earlier confusion.
The report's survey of the situation at other universities reveals just what are the most serious obstacles in the fight
against discrimination today—apathy, self righteousness,
cowardice and hypocrisy.
The new investigating body reqpmmended by the AMS
committee would be an excellent one. It would have been
naive to adopt the IFC committee's recommendation of a
fraternity committee including a couple of AMS member
The best indication of the AMS committee's initiative,
however, was its request that Pan-hellenic establish its own
committee to investigate non-constitutional discrimination
within its ranks, as the IFC has done.
But the sororities balked. They replied with an arrogantly
evasive letter, demonstrating an attitude which is extremely
One begins to suspect that perhaps the sororities are in
favor of 'perpetuating discrimination, for the sake of convenience if nothing else.
Pan-hellenic is aware that everyone knows of its earlier
declaration that no sorority possesses a discriminatory clause
in its constitution. Repeating that pious assertion is mockery considering the bigoted "selective" sorority invitation
listings which The Ubyssey expqsed last term.
It must also be remembered that only three fraternities
have discriminatory clauses, and yet it has been revealed
that a total of nine practise discrimination with some variation of "gentlemen's agreements."
Are we to believe that the situation isn't much the same
—or worse—among the sororities?
If Pan-hellenic refused to set up its own investigating
committee, the Alma Mater Society must more than ever
take its own action.
The AMS committee must have its terms of reference
extened to include non-constitutional discrimination in sororities. The Ubyssey urges that this extension be ordered
at the coming spring general meeting.
The light of publicity on any evil practise serves to remove it. What would be the extent of revelations by the AMS
committee is unknown. But there would be some information
made public.
At the very least, the committee's investigations would
bring added pressure against the sororities. And pressure has
accomplished much in the case of the fraternities.
It's Up To Everyone
The Provincial Government's recent nimble side stepping in the Budget of the issue of the actual needs of this
university is alarming, but certainly not unexepected.
This policy of considering the university as just another
financial milestone to be unloaded as soon and as quickly as •
possible is not confined to party lines, but stems from the
fact that these men in Victoria fail to realize the value of
a university to our province.
And these men are citizens from all parts of B.C. who
quite generally represent a state of mind that is prevalent
in a majority of the people of B.C.
Do we not know dozens of acquaintances who pursue this
same trend of thought?
If we want the new buildings, the better housing and
the increased facilities that are sorely needed on this campus,
the general public and, thus, the legislators must become
fully aware of the value of a unversity than a place of schooling for a chosen few. Such things as the community work of
the Extension Department and the B.C. Research Council,
the presence of Western Canada's largest library and the
presence of great men on the staff all add immensely to present and future progress of British Columbia.
But this vast public relations job can only be accomplished if every student becomes an emmissary of such information. Thus, I would advise that all students carefully consider all of thc facets of the university and their relationships.
After all, wo arc tho main products of this organization
and on us rests the factor of personal contact with our friends,
which can help solve this unhealthy slate of affairs.

Students Need Organization, Counsel
Commerce 1
Poor Peurifoy arrived at
UBC last September slightly
bewildered by all that lay
about him. The matter of a lecture time-table was quickly arranged in the first week or two,
and a thrice-daily coffee break
organized by new-found friends.
Being of a sociable nature,
Peurifoy went overboard on
'Club Day' ond embarked on a
schedule of meetings and activities that would have stopped
even the most gregarious greek.
As the pressure of assignments and lectures increased,
lie was forced to drop his club
responsibilities 'like a Hollywood starlet on the way up
dropping her moral scruples.
He scraped through his Christmas examinations, then fear
forced him into hibernation
through most of the second
He became an example of
a man who could start many
things but couldn't accomplish anything completely.
This is an example of what
can and does happen to many
eager but disorganised freshmen at UBC. The problems
are clear enough; what about
the solution?
A partial solution, one'which
we can all adopt is ORGANIZATION. We could all use a little
more ORGANIZATION of our
time and our energies.
With this vital factor our
friend Peurifoy would not have
dissipated his talents in a dozen
different directions but would
have concentrated his interest
in fewer fields, and would thus
have more chance of some success.

Thanks Given
Editor, The Ubyssey:
On behalf of the {acuity and
student members of the 1955
OPEN HOUSE committee I
would like to extend our sin*
cere thanks to the students and
faculty of this University for
their excellent cooperation.
That Open House was such
a success was due in eo small
way to the support given to
the committee by the various
faculties, departments a n d
clubs. Without the wholehearted support of the student body
an undertaking such as Open
House would bo impossible.
Tiie forty-seven thousand people who visited the campus last
Saturday had nothing but
praise for all the displays. They
spent a lot of time on the campus and when they returned
home they carried with them a
very favourable impression of
University life and activity. It
was through ihe hard work
and enthusiasm of the student
body and the faculty members
that such an impression was
Once again thank you for
your excellent cooperation and
assistance; the success of the
1955 Open House is your success and you can feel justly
With all good wishes.
Jacques Barbeau. Chairman
What many in a similar situation are also missing is some
mature COUNSEL. To many
students dway from their small
home-town for the first time,
an older friend, an adviser is
needed to fill thc vacancy left
by an absent parent.
Of course we're all supposed
to be adults, able to make decisions by ourselves. We are
University Students, and as
such will hnve to make decisions for the rest of the world
We can certainly make our
own decision! today. But as
young adults entering a new
environment, we should welcome advice and counsel
from those competent to assist our varied decisions.
The School of Commerce is
the only one on this campus
which has a formal counselling
service for its students. How
effective it is depends upon
the responsibility which each
counsellor feels and is willing
to assume, and upon thc use
made of this service by the individual student.
Let us hope that the student
realizes what help is available,
how to get this help, and when.
And let us hope that the instructors who provide the
counselling service are not just
asking the few questions and
tilling out the few forms required for 'just another extra
The responsibility they hear
is much more than that of a
lecture or class, where the student can often get his information from the text book. But
what he needs, should want,
and has a right to expect from
his counsellor is sincere interest informed guidance and mature counsel.
But Children Read Comics, Too...
Third  Year  Arts
An article in the Daily Cal-
ifornian (March 1) gave testimony to the fact that one eighth
of U.S. university professors
read comic books.
"So do Very bright as well
as dull pupils in all grade levels," the article reveals.
The information was derived
from a survey conducted by
researchers at the"" University
of California.
The -survey, prepared for the
State Legislature by University Faculty member Edward L.
Feder, says that one billion comic books are sold annually to
More money is spent on comic books than for the entire
supply of U.S. text books. The
sum spunt represents "four
times as much as the combined
book-buying budgets of the nation's public libraries."
However Mr, Feder hastens
to add that "there is absolutely no scientific evidence which
proves that today's growing
problem with juvenile delinquents is due to the growing
circulation of comic books."
There may be no proof Mr.
Feder. but it is obvious that
comic books have some effect upon the formative
minds of America's youth.
At   least  many  Canadian
educators   and   psychiatrists
think that the "comics" furnish a little incentive to brutality on the part of young
As a matter of fact, leading
U.S.     Psychiatrist    Frederick
Wertham, in his book "Seduction of the Innocent" builds a
very strong case for banning
today's "penny thrillers."
He says the comics glorify
violence, crime, sadism, race
hatred and sexual abnormalty
and furnishes a wealth of facts
to back up this contention.
He cites lengthy statistics of
recorded  juvenile  crimes  directly influenced by comic books
Torture, rape, beatings and
other    highly    questionable
crimes perpetrated by young

He says they may tip the
scales    toward     maladjustment and delinquency.
Wertham replies to the hints
that  comic book   suppression
is censorship and will endanger
civil rights — a charge very
popular among the publishing
"Mental health is just as important as physical health,"
Wertham points out.
"Its protection should be
built on the same kind of clinical thinking as public health."
The Psychiatrist maintains
comic books are an invitation
to illiteracy; create an atmosphere of cruelty and deceit;
stimulate unwholsome fancy
and criminal or sexually abnormal ideas.
He says the government

Comics occupy a fearful amount of time among Canada's
youth. It is part of their culture — and the values represented to them will unconsciously,
or otherwise, have an effect in
molding their characters.
Culture performs a two-fold

'Executives' Topic
Of Banquet Talk
A man who has had a distinguished career as a student,
as a professor and as a management consultant, Dr. Dwight
Palmer of Los Angeles found a most responsive audience when
he addressed the annual Commerce Banquet on Thursday, February 24.
Speaking to thc two hundred
students and over four hundred
representatives of the business
community present in the Ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver,
Dr. Palmer outlined a ten point
program for "The Development
of Executives."
He developed the theme of an
executive program through its
various phases, concluding with
the suggestion that those present
would be well-advised to "Assure your company's future by
building a management team today."
Frequent appropriate quotations from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice
in Wonderland' and White and
Thurber's 'Is Sex Necessary?' as
well as Dr. Palmer's own ready
wit showed to next year's Banquet Committee that they have
a difficult task ahead if they
plan to provide a guest speaker
of equal competence.
This year's committee, headed
by Jim Eccott, is to bS commended on the arrangements that
went into the highly successful
A highlight of the early part
of the proceedings was the presentation by Mr. Frank Baker
of the Ad and Sales Bureau of
the Board of Trade of a sack
purported to contain one thousand silver dollars to Commerce
head Professor E. D. MacPhee.
Something new in Commerce
is the formation of a committee
to promote Interest among our
first year students. Consisting of
the five first-year representatives
its major achievements in the
social field were the two cocktail parties before the Commerce
Formal and the Informal.
We feel it is partially as a
result of these that first-year
participation increased as it did
this year.
In conjuction with the CUS
and the Faculty, this committee
sponsored a series of lectures outlining the options available to
students in commerce.
These 'indoctrination' lectures,
running from Monday, February
28 to Friday, March 11, are designed to give the students a
better idea of the various options
in Commerce, why certath courses are made available, the types
of jobs they lead to, the personal
qualifications required for those
Jobs, and the downtown businesses or associations which assist to further the program of
each option.

Teams Just
About Win;
But Lose
Commerce this year entered
two volleyball teams at the beginning of the year. The B' team
won all its regular league games
and finished first in the division.
In the quarter finals they lost
to the Engineers in a closely
fought game. The 'A' team lost
two games in the regular league
and so did not make the playoffs. .
In table tennis, the doubles
team of Bob Lee and Sonny Kent
seemed a sure bet to make the
finals, but due to a misunderstanding of the playing dates,
lost out in the semi-finals.
The singles entries did not
fare so well, and were knocked
out in the first round.
The badminton team which
was entered, put up a stiff battle
but lost out to a strong team in
the first round. The doubles
team made it to the second round
before being eliminated.
The commerce soccer team
slogged its way to a victory in
the first round of the Intermural
soccer league but lost out in the
second round to the Phi Delt
rugby team.
At Christmas, Commerce was
third in the Intermural Sports

Investor's Soliloquy
To buy or not to buy, that is the question.
Whether 'tis wiser for the stock to offer
A price that seems like an outrageous fortune
Or wait, upwisely, till the figure doubles
And chance of profit ends then. To buy; so cheap;
No more; for being too late, we end
The opportunity of a rise in stocks
Not devoutly to be wished. Ay, there's the rub!
We would be heir to. Is consummation
For that right choice of what to buy, and when, to
which we come
Must give us pause.

Commerce Faculty Just
Bigger, Bigger
• ••
The interest in, and the progress of the U.B.C. School of
Commerce has been shown by the increased enrollment. In 1051
this figure stood at 325, 5% of the total student body. Today
505 students, 9% of UBC's total enrollment, make our School
of Commerce the largest in Canada.
After the many changes which
nave taken place in our undergraduate program in the past few
years, the emphasis is now on
Consolidation of the existing program. The refinements are: In
the Accounting Option, a problems course has been introduced.
A new Public Utilities problem
Course is being given for the
first time this year. The Junior
Chamber of Commerce is also
providing instructors in Public
Speaking for Second Year Commerce students.
Two of the societies of accountants have made arrangements with the School whereby
graduates who have majored in
accounting will be allowed substantial reductions in their apprenticeship time, and be exempt from some of the professional examinations. The Institute of Chartered Accountants,
in conjunction with the School
of Commerce, has developed a
closely knit program under
which a student may qualify
for both the Bachelor of Commerce degree and the professional standing as a Chartered Accountant by alternating his studies and practical work in the
University and the office of his
In 1950-51, members of the
faculty gave lectures to 5 extension classes, totalling just over
100 students. Today these figures have increased from 5 classes to 25, and the enrollment from
100 to 1,100.
We Can see that the extension
courses offered continue to grow
in importance. The Sale9 Management Club now has 110 men
and women enrolled in the Sales
Executive Course. The Ad Club
continues to sponsor and recruit
each year a class of students
for a three-year course in Advertising.
The Sales Management Club
of Victoria has organized a group
of 70 men for a three-year course
in that city. The Boards of Trade
in Vernon and Kelowna and the
Retail Merchants' Association of
Nanaimo have sponsored and organized three year Junior Management courses for their communities.
Liason Body
Big Success
For the first time since 1WH-
52 the CUS and Faculty of the
School of Commerce this year
sponsored a Liason Committee
under the able chairmanship of
W. L. 'Mac' McCamey.
This one-way communication
system operates effectively in
carrying student opinion to the
faculty members. It had been
hoped originally that requests
would reach the committee
through'class representatives or
messages left in the CUS executive offices where the weekly
meetings are held. It has been
found, however, that most of
the subjects discussed reached
the committee through its individual members.

Similar to that prepared by the
Inter-Fraternity Council on tha
subject of discrimination*"
The IFC report had revealed
that a total of nine fraternities
at UBC possess restrictions of
some sort which discriminate on
the basis of religion or race.
The committee's report will
be presented to Student Council
at Monday's meeting! Council
will pass on the report and may
add recommendations they fhink
The finalized version of the
report will be presented at the
general meeting, March 18, for
approval by the student body.
Thc committee was set up following last year's Spring general meeting. It is composed oi
two IFC members, two CLU
members, two Student Council
members and the USC chairman.
The committee was instructed
to correspond with other North
American universities to see they
had a similar problem and what
action, if any, they were taking.
Some of the partial replies
were: New York University —
"Clauses were removed voluntarily." U. of Nebraska — "Student Council controls campus
clubs, but permits race discrimination." Georgetown U. —
"Trust in time and God." Duke
U. — "Definitely has a race
problem. One fraternity chapter
has left its national." Replies
wore received from 50 universities.

Underdog Role For Birds
Today, They Don't Mind
THREE OF VARSITY'S stalwarts, forwards Derek Vallis
and Bill Bice, and back Ross Wright work the dribbling
strategy they will be employing today to overcome the
powerful Cal scrum. —Brian Thomas Photo
Pat  Their  Backs,
They  Deserve  It
Praise being somewhat nebulous stuff, and difficult to apply
with Justice, the Ubyssey is not prone to bestowing it lavishly or
even in small handouts.
But once in a while there comes an instance worthy of a
Journalistic pat on the back. And amazingly enough, this year
we've had two.
First of all, the basketball Jayvees. They were a strange outfit. They ambled leisurely through the season, rarely beating the
top tean*. and only socking the lower ones enough to finish in
third place.
The league seemed divided in two, with the Adanacs and
the Eilers at the ton, and the Javvees and lesser lights fumbling
around in the murky lower depths.
It would be interesting to know what caused the metamorphose of Dick Penn's lads. What it was, we can only guess, but with
one great surge they popped out of the dark and began to act like
champ'onship stuff.
They cleaned up the Adanacs, after losing the first game.
That was a surprise to many, for Ken Wright's crew were
supposed to be good.
But that was only half of it. The Eilers were heavy favorites
to moo the sweat off tho Lord Bvng gym floor with the Chiefs.
Bo mich for favourites. Thc lickings the Jayvees handed flhsm at*
history, but history tnat will not ue forgotten tor some time.
The baby Birds lost three straight to the Cloverleafs, but
not before the Leafs picked up a few battles scars and one helluva
That loss won't be marked up against Dick Penn's mea.
So to Dick, Ted Saunders, Mike Fraser, Barry Drummond,
Frank Tarling, Jack Redford, Jergen Schilling, Stan Gustin, Qmt**
die Gimple, Bob Holt and Don Gunning, known as the Senior A
champs, go some deserved plaudits.
A cheer from the reading audience would be well placed.
Th other praiseworthy feat was that of Max Howell and his
swimmers. You all know the story.
A month ago, Howell was training one of the strongest
swimming squads UBC had ever had. As they splashed conquering-
ly through the Northwest's pools they broke UBC records as a
matter of course.
Max was happy, his swimmers were happy, and UBC was
looking for another Evergreen conference swimming championship.
Then the heavens, in the form of the little man that looks
through the eligibility files, fell all over Howell and six of his best.
Things were as black as ye olde Calcuttian wine-cellar.
But Max pulled up his courage and called on any who had
former association with swimming. A few rallied round the flag.
Max took them in hand, tossed them in the same pool with
the men he had left, and came up with a team. Shy on hope but
long on guts, they went off to meet the dripping Yankee fangs.
(Western was looking for an easy win.)
The result is some more history. UBC 79, Western 70, Eastern 53.
More plaudits?
We think so.

Big  Blocks  Add
Fights  To  Stag
A late news flash revealed that the big block club stag
(held tonight at the Lions Gate Hall, 2611 Wast Fourth, and
to which all campus males seem to be going) will have even
more entertainment than previously offered.
It was learned late Wednesday that the big block-heads will
be offering the first Canadian
showing of the recent Canada-
Russia hockey game.
Added to that will be the live
talents fisticuffs display of Caesar Volivanados and Gary Williams. The hard punching pair
earned recent fame in the exhibition bout they staged at the
intramual boxing show.
Admission to this great evening is $1. The price also includes two bottles  of  unamed
