A  Canadian University
Press Feature
• OTTAWA: Right at the moment, there is a well-founded
rumour going around semi-official
circles in Ottawa that the voting
age is to be reduced at the next
federal election from twenty-one
to eighteen years. It is not possible to secure any official word
on the subject, since it is obvious
that it is to the advantage of all
concerned to keep the answer secret, for a while yet at least.
Actually, lt probably doesn't
matter very much, one way or another. The tendency is towards a
broadening down of the pyramid,
and it is Just a matter of determining when -the level of "common-sense" required of a voter Is
attained ln the development of a
young person.
The phrase "Sinatra for President" pretty well sums up the
standard reaction of older
people towards allowing young
people to vote at eighteen.
They are opposed to it because
they feel that young people
cannot decide sensibly the issues facing them at any election.
What political advantage the
present government might expect
to obtain from the lowering of the
voting age is a, little difficult to
determine. Young people are not
easily bought by any kind of con.
cession, and they might regard the
lowering of the voting age as just
that Then, too, they are, as a
group, strongly. Interested in some
kind of changej and might be expected to lean against tnt government ln any poll.
The whole matter, howeVer,
must rest as what it is, pure conjecture. The government ls pretty
well pledged not to Introduce any
controversial legislation at this
next session, and it ls almost certain that many of Its own supporters would regard a lowering
of the voting age as just thai The
whole rumour may have arisen because of the activities of the Ontario Legislative Assembly, which
la considering a motion to reduce
Ihe voting age to eighteen.
But, on the other hand, Mr.
Xing is full of surprises, and no
one knows what ls going to happen with him until it has taken
place. Jt it quite possible that he
fcjii planned this course of action
deliberately, without much expectation of its success. He would
like very much to be able to say
that he was unable to introduce
"progressive" legislation in. this
House of Commons in order to increase the possibility of his securing a mandate for the next.

•   TED CHAMBERS was elected president of the Arts
Undergraduate Society for 1945-46 at a meeting on Wednesday noon of the AUS, by 95 members of the AUS.
Joy Donegani was elected vice-president, Daphne Laird
secretary, Keith MacDonald treasurer and Jack Gillis
* •   OF ALL the institutions at UBC, the Caf undoubtedly
leaves the most lasting memories. If all the hours wasted
in Mr. Underbill's coffee emporium in the course of one
session could be utilized in study Einstein would have to
look to his laurels.
Before the election of president, Doug Clark, this year's
marshall, told the students that
If the new constitution drawn
up by the Student Government
Revision Board Is passed at the
AMS meeting, the president of
AUS might weU be elected by
the Undergraduate Societies
Committee to represent the
Committee on Students' Council.
Nominated for the various positions were Ted Chambers and Jack
Gillis for president, Joy Donegani
and Doug Leiterman for vice-president, Daphne Laird and Barbara
Jones for secretary, Keith MacDonald for treasurer, and Jack
Gillis for marshall.
Allan Ainsworth, next year's
AMS president, said after the meeting that "since under the new
constitution, if it passej, the Undergraduate Societies Committee
will be second in importance to
the Students' Council, Artsmen
must realize that the activities of
AUS should take precedence over
all others."

\\> *'-*■;
After groping his way to the
counter and picking up a cupful
of justly famous brew, the average
oaf hound scant the sea of faces
for some familiar visage, preferably somebody who Is skipping
the same lecture. Then the two of
them can get together and convince themselves that the professor knows strictly from nothing
and the lecture was not worth attending anyway.
The conversation will then almost invariably turn to the finer
things of life; girls for example.
This discussion ls usually accompanied by a careful search of the
sorolty tables from a respectable
distance of course, for suitable examples to Illustrate the talk.
If it is early in the day and the
turnover is rapid there is a never-
ending string of eye-catchers and
our two friends set an all time record for coffee consumption and
lecture skipping. Later on when
the smoke is not quite so thick
and vision not quite so obstructed
another favorite sport emerges.
This is the little game of "Should
I should or should I shouldn't?"
This delightful pastime is precipitated by the entrance of a solitary coed who purchases a beaker
of Frank's special, finds herself a
secluded spot to sit, and then sits
there and does her darndest to
look lonely.
To the average scholar of Caf
3 there is no more fascinating sight
than a comely damsel  sitting by
herself, but here a problem arises.
Although both cf our friends express approval In no uncertain
terms, both are too timid to Wander over and strike up a conversation. But wiU they admit lt? No.
Hence the fun begins.
Each Java fiend claims that Miss
X ls giving the otfier one the old
glad eye, and why does he Just
sit there? Is he man, mouse, or
rat? While this enlightened conversation is in progress some third
party very neatly puts an end to
the discussion by moving in on
Miss X's table himself. Our two
junior wolves breathe inaudible
sighs of relief at the timely appearance of this face-saver and
each resolves not to get caught so
far off base again.
Although coeds are the Caf's
chief attraction, they are not without competition. There is always
some screwball who is out to set a
new world's record for balancing
matches on an upended coke bottle, Some other character will be
trying to flick a spoon into a glass
three tables away while some
three or four aspiring Michael-
angelos are defying the discipline
committee and drawing an elaborate mural on some convenient
table top. In a dark secluded corner two furtive freshmen toss pennies to see who pays for the cokes.
The Caf is a wonderful institution. You can even eat food there
if you insist.

Child Training,
School Changes
• EXTENSIVE changes in
the Canadian educational system have been recommended by members of the
Social Problems Club, after
a series of meetings this
The club declares that the qualifications and pay of teachers must
be raised and that in other ways '
the public prestige of the teacher
must be raised so that he is no
longer at the mercy of Ignorant
and domineering school boards and
parents. '%
The severance of his economic
and social chains will be facilitated, members say, by demands that
the teacher be of the highest intellectual quality. The group is
unanimously m favor of equal pay
for equal work.
The club asks that more stress
be laid on the education of a child
who is going into life with only a
high school education or less.
Public school training today, they
say, is designed for graduation into
high school and high school training for graduation into university,
yet only a small fraction of our
children ever want to or ever can
enter University.

• MONTREAL, March 15-(CUP)
—McGill University members
will contribute $1200 to the McGill
War Memorial Campaign. The
$1200 will come out of the pay of
thc 1200 cadets of 1944-45. Thc
total amount contributed by the
COTC now equals $20,000 which
includes $3,000 "special reserve
fund" and $5,000 which has already
been promised from Corps Reserve
Funds accumulated prior to 1942
as a donation from the volunteer
cadets of that date.
This contribution will be considered as a part of the student
contribution towards the Graduate
Society's campaign for funds to
add a swimming pool to the present   Sir  Arthur  Currie  Memorial
Gymnasium Armoury.
The  total   of  $12,M0  which
will be taken from the pay of
next year's COTC cadets will
be available for the fund "if
headquarters 'pay will be received for the full numbers of
Cadets ln training."
Owing to the disbanding of the
University   Air   Squadron   whose
members   were   subsequently   enrolled in  the COTC the strength
of the COTC has been raised  to
1200.   If the Headquarters pay for
the  'establishment   takes   this   increase into account the full contribution can be made.
In order to clarify the pay-waiving situation the Commanding Officer of the McGill Corps has issu
ed the following statement:
Following the custom of the
Corps since its organization in 1912,
up to and including the year 1942,
the pay of all ranks, Officers,
NCOs and Cadets, whether for
training at local headquarters or
at camp, was assigned to Regimental Funds, and the proceeds
used to defray the expenses of
operation, training and administration, and the provision of equipment and furniture, etc., which
has enabled the Contingent to acquire, without private subscription
or financial assistance from the
University, the splendid facilities
which it has today, other than, of
course, the original Armoury
Building itself.
. . . THE UBYSSEY . . .
. MARCH IS, 194S
UCol. lOPt.
Editors, you know, are very human
people. We're not cold-blooded machines
out to degrade mankind, or heartless monsters of the deep preying upon the innocent.
Sometimes, when provoked, we get fairly
ruthless, but on the whole we're kind of
sentimental, Really, we are.
Particularly sentimental, and especially
around this time of year, are Ubyssey editors. For soon we will be no more than a
name* in the files. Our bright-eyed successor
is already crowding us out of these columns,
which we have had to ourself exclusively
for so long a time.
And so the old emotion comes upon us
as we write our last "edit . . .111 1% col.
10 pt.", which we have done nine times a
week since those first days in September,
when we were bright-eyed, eager and full
of big campaigns.
It hasn't seemed so very long ago since
we walked into the Pub to be immediately
sent by a surly sports editor to the stadium
to see if a new mat had been put on the
boxing ring, We reported back a few hours
later, very close to the deadline, that it was
not on yet, and found ourself a reporter.
We've been here ever since, and now the
forces of natural evolution are pushing us
Working for the Publications Board is
• unique experience, which no pubster will
ever forget. Coir four years have jammed a
host of memories in our mind that somehow
don't seem to fade no matter how far away
they get.
We shall never forget our first "God",
Archibald T. Paton. He was the archetype
of all we ever dreamed of being, the highest,
the mightiest, the wisest of the species. He
•poke, and we jumped. But the archetype
crumbled in each successive "God", as we
became more familiar with this peculiar
type of being, until we received the crown
and the archetype dissolved altogether.
It's been a strange and uninhibited
group we've been associated with the past
four years. Old Archetype Paton, who tried
so hard to dignify himself from sports editor
to editor-in-chief, brought a monkey-like
mannerism to the pub which we all tried to
oopy. It consisted of putting one's left hand
In one's left pocket, holding one's cigarette
in the other hand (extended slightly), sticking one's stomach out abnormally, and quoting something very wise and significant. We
soon ran out of significant quotes, but Paton
That year was also made great by Reporter John Gummow, who sat throughout
a Pub party with his bended head resting
on his folded arms. We always wondered
why. Another unexplained mystery was the
constant mumbling of "60,000" by Senior
Editor Les Bewley, who gave this forth to
the world at odd moments as if expecting
the world to shatter at its sound.
We suppose  that  we  learned  every
swear word in the English language, and the
odd one from Hindustani, when News Manager Andrew Snaddon used to give the staff
its monthly quota of "hell" for misdemeanours. Later on they made him editor-in-
chief and he had to brush up on his Hindustani. But the greatest of them all was
Senior Editor Jack MacMillan, who had the
funny little habit of climbing up on the
stone table at press after setting the last lead
slug in the paper to gaze down at his work
and exclaim, "Well, it looks like another
good issue". The last we heard from him
was when he shot a co-ed at Queen's University.
Then there was one-rotund Lionel Salt,
a legend around here, who would have written his master's thesis on sex if he could
have passed French 2. We are told that
Salt once shocked a Freshette into second
year while discoursing on the subject of sex.
His idol, "Star Bright", now hangs in the
editor-in-chief's office for a lasting reminder
of Salt and for the constant delight of the
present editor.
Speaking of Tubby reminds us of Dinah,
known professionally as Margaret Reid, the
red-headed editor-in-chief of last year who
brought glamour to the Pub. We needed it.
Dinah had an aversion to being called snake-
hips, which attribute we all vowed belonged
solely to her. The name was given to her
by appreciative Peter Remnant, who holds
tiie record for breaking more Pub chairs
than any other pubster in the last twenty
years. Before we leave office we're going
to completely smash a chair against the wall
and then run like mad. That's our ambition
No. 2. Ambition No. 1 was that split infinitive.
There is also Surly John Ferry, who
"lost interest" in the Pub, to retrieve it this
year when he "lost interest" in a certain
institution, which is rapidly decreasing in
interest for a number of people. And we
mustn't forget Cheery Chuck, Virginia,
Maury and a great mass of pubsters which
we can't mention here because Morris sold
an ad under us and we're running out of
space. Up to his old tricks again. Bless his
little, black heart.
Every editorial should have a moral to
it. The printed word seems too valuable to
most of us to waste on sentimental dribble,
and in an editorial it cannot be tolerated.
Maybe so. We started this as a protest because we felt that we were losing something. As we wrote we realized that we had
gained, and UBC had lost.
Even so, we have a certain reluctant
feeling as we write "30" to our last editorial.
For we realize it is not "30" for UBC. The
transcendental life of a university, its existence above an in-and-out flow of thousands
of students, is magnificent to comprehend.
Above it stands, bestowing friendship and
sound learning on a passing parade of those
dedicated against cynicism of human

• DIRECT FACULTY representation (Arts, Aggie, Science
and Com.) on Council was rejected by the Board after
having been discussed at great length under the general
headings of Efficiency, Fair Representation, Continuity, and
Contact with the Student Body. Briefly, the points pro and
con are as follows:
PRO: (1.) Would provide the
broadest possible base for representation on Council
(2.) Would possibly provide
more effective criticism
(3.) Would provide a potential
source of workers to do some of
duties of Council
(4.) Would possibly stimulate
the activities of the Undergraduate Societies
CON: (1.) Would not make for
snore efficient functioning ol
(2.) Would not provide complete undergraduate representation on Council
(8.) Would not further continuity
(4) Would ln all probability
lead to factional disputes and interests
(J.) Would further overlapping
ef existing representation
(6.) Would Increase the responsibility of the President in maintaining discipline and allocating
work to keep these members busy.
(T.) Would have no real function except m undergraduate
(&)  Tried before whan University only one-third as large and

The following points evolved
from the discussion on direct faculty representation:
(1.) That the functional aspect
of CouneU was predominant over
all others
(1) That the functional aspect
should be strengthened and not
(3.) That from the functional
point of view, the position of MUS

(4.) That from the point of
view of unfair representation on

contribution to student government on the campus.
Therefore, the Board resolved
that an Undergraduate Societies
Committee be established, composed of the executives of each
Undergraduate Society, and that
the Committee have a Constitution
clearly defining its Object, Structure, and Function. The main
points of which are as follows:
1.  Object:
(a) To promote, direct, control and coordinate the activities
of the various Undergraduate
Societies through their Executives on this Committee
(b) To act as the medium •
through which the undergraduate body can effectively express
their views on matters important to them as members of the
Alma Mater Society
(c) To safeguard the constitutional rights of all members of
the Alma Mater Society in the
matters of elections, special and
general meetings, expenditures,
discipline, et cetera
1 Function or Duties:
(a) To act as a permanent
discipline committee completely
assuming the duties thereof
(b) To devise a new awards
system in conjunction with Athletics, LSE, and Publications. It
is recommended that the new
system be on a point basis and
that the award represent a summation of a student's activities
while at the University. It is
also recommended that this
Committee be responsible for fhe
administration of the new system and the issuing of the A-

time leave Council free to work as

The creation of the Undergraduate Societies Committee necessitates the renaming of the WUS

PEEPER'S PAPER ... by peeper
• I WOULD hasten to assure my
readers that although my family has always been landed and
although I have chosen my profession with due regard to family
tradition, that I have no particular prejudices concerning the
young man who chooses a mercantile vocation or one who goes
Into trade. It Is unfortunate that
many young men of good family
are prevented from entering this
lucrative and interesting field because of the class sentiment that
has always existed in many excellent kinship groups. It is fortunate, I ahi sure, that in this day,
unlike that of my father's, many
younger sons of younger sons
have found their way Into trade,
thus preserving their economic
position even though their social
position, ln the eyes of some, is
damaged beyond repair.
I have often observed that the
Commerce Department of our university is replete with ambitious
hopefuls attempting to adopt
themselves to the habits and manners ot then* chosen profession. It
is with certainty that I offer as a
model to the commercial aspirants
in our midst, young Sperling Algernon Blythe-Wlckham. Be is
directly descended from that excellent house of Blythe-Wlckham
which was the foundation of the
title of Marquis of Donnaconda
and Restigouche, bestowed upon
Wm. Blythe-Wlckham by a great-
ful sovereign for his renowned
leadership of the small but effective contingent of Canadian volunteers at the Battle of Inkerman in
November, 1884. The branch of
the Blythe-Wlckham family to
which young Sperling belongs is
now resident on East 8eventh in
this city, there they manage, all-
belt with difficulty, to maintain
the vestiges of family pride. The
family Is certain that Spsrllng will
make a great success la the business world, and If the opinion of
his professors are of value, he
needs must cut a dazzling figure
in commercial society.
I have heard, from my infrequent intercourse with tradesmen
and mechanics, handling as I do
my estate and financial disbursements through my solicitors, that
the more important and successful
of them are not spoken of by
name but referred to by their
first two Initials. This custom has
led to the appelation of aur young
man to be reduced to merely SA.

undoubtedly an honor not to be
taken lightly In the Commerce
department where such a distinction is conferred only upon those

Rimless glasses, determined and

and thin, closed lips ensure success In commercial enterprises.
These young SA. possesses to a

One day last autumn, seated at
Underbill's, I began to worry (an
infrequent occurence) about my
stocks in the East India Company
and their somewhat diminished

upon me with his firm, determined
tread. I could not but help observe that SA., with his gleaming
satchel (which he Is never without) and his somewhat shiny pinstriped suit, looked the very Incar-
nation of efficiency and assurance,
He seated himself, and after placing his satchel on the table, leaned
close to me, and gazing directly
at me, said that he guessed the
reason for my worried expression,

had betrayed my feelings to this

During an average year, the M
AD administers extra-mural athletics in which 600 male students take
an active part, playing 385 league
games before an estimated 55,000
spectators. MAD controls basket-
ball, English rugby, Canadian
football, soccer, and such non-
revenue producing sports as track,
golf, badminton, swimming, Ice
hockey, rowing, skiing, and mountaineering.
Teams are entered not only In
local leagues, but also in intercity and Inter-collegiate leagues.
At present, some sports are curtailed because of wartime restrictions, but ln the postwar period,
athletics will have to expand to
provide facilities for Increased enrolment at the University of British Columbia.
The MAD recognizes not only
the need for future expansion, but
also the need for revision of the
present   athletic   organization.
With these views ln mind, the Directorate set up a committee to
study the organization of athletics
at other Canadian and American
colleges of comparable size.
A questionnaire was sent to
these universities, asking specific questions regarding their
athletic  organisation  and requesting any advice they could
give the Committee so that it
might have as much Information on hand as possible before
coming to any conclusions regarding revision of the constitution.
The universities questioned
showed a genuine Interest In the
problem and responded well to the
questionnaire, providing the Committee with a great number of
facts which are attached to this
report in a table (viz., Table I).
Upon examining the reports
from these universities, the Committee found the following features to be common to most of
the athletic organizations:
1. Extra-mural athletics are
administered by an athletic
board. This board is responsible for all extra-mural athletics.
2. A definite sum of money Is
set aside to administer athletics.
3. A pass system Is In operation to admit students to
athletic events on tiie campus.
4. The university authorities
maintain the playing fields
and gymnasiums.
Besides reviewing the athletic
organizations of other universities,
the Committee carried out a detailed study of the AMS books ln
an effort to obtain a true picture
of the cost of athletics to the Society. Athletic expenditures and
revenues were examined for the
period from 1930 to 1944. A summarized statement for these years
is attached to this report in tabulated form (viz. Table II).
It can be seen that the net cost
of athletics to the AMS was lowest in 1937 which was the year of
greatest expenditure. The average
cost to the Society in pre-war
years amounted to approximately
$3,000 per year. Tills ls approximately 25 per cent of the General
AMS Fund.
(At present, |3 is allocated to the
Brock Memorial Retirement Fund
and S3 to the Pass Fund . The remaining $7 per student constitutes
the General AMS Fund.)
It ls obvious that 25 percent
of the General AMS Fund is
sufficient only for minimum
operating expenses of extramural athletics in an academic
year on the present basis, and
therefore It is felt that some
provision for overdraughts
must be made to take care of
extraordinary e x p e n d I hires
such as guarantees, travelling
expenses, etc., such overdraughts to be repaid by the
MAD before the close of the
academic year.
Past experience shows that it requires approximately $3,000 to
bring a basketball team from the
East to play in the Canadian
Championships, $1,000 to bring an
English rugby team from California to play for the "World" Cup,
and $1700 to send a Canadian football team to the Prairies to play
in inter-collegiate competition.
In the years when these expenses were incurred, it was necessary .
to have the cash on hand for the
guarantees to the visiting teams,
and for the expenses of sending
out UBC teams. However, these
years (viz. Table II, 1937) proved
to be years of greatest revenue
and hence those of least expense
to the AMS.
In addition, It must be noted
that policies of Students' Council vary from year to year.
Some Councils are primarily
Interested' In 'sports, others In
. social activities, others In Alma
Mater administration, and still
others In University expansion.
Because the athletic program is
flexible and financial demands
vary from year to year, It Is necessary for the MAD to have complete control of its finances, instead of being dependent on the
attitude of any particular Council,
in order that it can plan ahead for
major expenditures.
The Pass System makes no direct and regular contribution to the
operating expenses of student athletics. However, an amout approximating $500 per year is paid from
the Pass System funds to the various leagues for the privilege of
allowing students free admission
to league games off tSle eampus.
No   such   compensation   is
made   in   respect   to   athletic
events which are staged on the
university campus.   Yet these
home   games   are'   the   only
source of revenue for student
athletics.  Therefore, the Committee considers that some readjustment regarding distribution of Pass System funds to
athletics should be made.
From an exhaustive study of the
data available and of the conditions under which university
sports have been administered in
the past, the Committee has at-
LUKE MOYLS, Sports Editor
rived at the following conclusions:
1. The efficiency of the MAD
is hampered by lack of financial
control of expenditures.
2. Under the present conditions,
all athletic expenditures have to
wait until passed by Students'
3. The revenue-producing sports
must support those which are
non-revenue producing.
4. Trips and unscheduled series
requiring Immediate expenditures ln the way of guarantees or
expenses must be decided upon
5. Past records show that in
normal years the annual athletic expenditures amount to approximately 25 per cent of the
eneral AMS Fund.
6. The present MAD is not sufficiently representative of men's
7. The MAD is composed of
members with knowledge of and
experience in athletic administration.
8. Therefore the Committee recommends:
1. Reconstitutlon of MAD. '

Down Victoria Naval College XV
In Final Tilt Of Rugger Season
• RUNNING UP a huge lead in the first half and then proceeding to hang onto it, Varsity whipped the Victoria
Naval Cadets 24-11 at Brockton Oval on Saturday. It was
the annual Rounsefel Cup tilt and by winning, the students
annexed their third trophy of the season. The Varsity Thunderbirds had previously won the McKechnie Cup, to make
a total of four rugby trophies for the University this season.
Before   the   best   crowd   of  the
year, Varsity stunned the Islanders in the first few minutes of
play with their smooth backfield
and tough scrum. The Blue and
Gold whipped over five tries before the Cadets could eVen settle
However, when they finally did
get down to the business at hand,
they gave the' Students such a
battle that the outcome was In
doubt until Jack Armour of Varsity scored late in the game to
clinch the title.
The first score came Just after the opening whistle when
Bob Croll plunged over
after a three run. He missed
the convert for the extra
points. Then In quick succession, Johnny Wheeler, Croll
again, Bob Lawson and then
Croll with another, scored.
Scott Kerr converted one and
Croll brought his Individual
total to eleven with another
But all hopes for a shutout were
washed aside as the Cadets scored
just before the whistle at the half.
This made the score 19-3.
With the start of the final stanza,
also came new vigour to Victoria.
They added three points to their
score when they were awarded a
penalty kick and made it good.
Meanwhile, the Varsity scrum
was being outplayed and this gave
the Islanders' threes a chance to
show their wares. As a result,
their threes carried the ball 45
yards to score another try. The
converting of this score narrowed
Varsity's margin down to 8 points.
Just when It seemed as If the
Cadets might be able to set up
their star kicker, Brian Bell-
Irving, for a couple of field
goals, Jack Armour Intercepted
a pass and went seventy-five
yards to score the try. Scott
Kerr converted to finish off the
scoring at 24-11.
For his three trys and convert,
Bob Croll was undoubtedly the
best player on the field, as he
played his best rugger of the year.
There will be a practice this
afternoon at 5 o'clock for all UBC
players. The team ls shorthanded
for their encounter with Ex-Britannia so Manager Geoff Hill requests that any Varsity players
who might want to Pl*y» should
turn out also.
• BASKETBALL fans will have
their last chance to see the
casaba enthusiasts in action today
at noon when the Senior B Thunderbees take on the UBC Chiefs
In an exhibition game In the gym
at 12:30.
It seems that the young Inter A
squad that made things so hot for
the Lauries Pie-Rate squad In the
Senior A semis feel that they
should take the big boys down a
peg by showing them a little about
how the game should be played.
However, the Senior quintet has
come to the conclusion that the
Chiefs are getting a little too proud
of themselves and it Is high time
that they were shown they should
have stayed In biter A company.
There might not be any more
hoopla on the campus this year
so come on out and watch the
Freshmen, or will It be the Seniors, win a game.
Creighton Reports On MAD Revision
The adoption of the proposals of the Men's Athletic Directorate will
necessitate only minor changes ln the bookkeeping procedure. It .is unnecessary to institute a complete new set of books.
The change in procedure necessary will be the introduction of a
small voucher form to be used by the Treasurer or MAD to authorize
the President and Treasurer of the AMS to make payment for the MAD.
These forms directing payment would be attached to the back of the
AMS voucher form with the bill and would require the initials of the
President and Traesurer of the MAD.
The present petty cash fund will be used with the MAD Treasurer
checking off expenditures after they have been made. The Treasurer of
MAD will be required to obtain the MAD's approval on all expenditures
and revenue by having petty cash receipts, cheque register and Journal
vouchers passed at the MAD meetings.
Memo Re Athletic Financial Change Proposal:
As the proposal stands at the present time the MAD will receive a
specific grant from the Students' Council each year. To begin with, this
grant will be around $3,000 which is based on the average expenditures
in normal years in the past.
However, as the expenditures for athletics are heavy at the beginning of the academic year, and the revenue from the student fees does
not arrive from the Bursar's Office until October or November, it will
be necessary to advance money to the MAD at this time of the year.
The profits from athletics are greatest during the closing months
of the academic year because of play-offs and final games, and this
may mean that advances will have to be made throughout the entire
The only change necessary In the ledger will be the addition of
an MAD Account which will correspond to present AMS Fees Aeoeunt
far the MAD.
It has been suggested that all the regular athletic accounts such as
accounts for individual clubs and teams be segregated In one section of the
ledger to facilitate reference.
It has been suggested that $600 be given from the Pass System
to the Athletic Board to administer and provide athletic entertainment
for the students. This would require the setting up of an athletic pass
system account which would be Included in the Athletic Section of the
This grant would be made from the Pass System just as the grants
to the Vancouver Rugby Union and Basketball League are made each
It is understood that the athletic directorate is authorized to charge
the students not more than ten cents for admission to pass system feature
games on the condition that no more than $600 be required to pay for
the cost of the games.
