Meeting Approves Twin Budgets
Berkeley—(special) — A lovelorn student attempted suicide
when rejected by coed at Kappa
Alpha Theta sorority house,
University of California, Wednesday.
The husky 6 ft. 4 in., 225-lb.
student swallowed 40 sleeping
pills In the presence of 75
screaming coeds, residents of the
Kappa Alpha Theta house.
Police officers called to the
scene were unable to cope with
the struggling student and restraining straps were applied in
an effort to control him.
Hospital authorities said that
a stomach pump was successfully used and the patient is expected to recover.
Police said no charges would
be laid against him.
Donor To
Get Prize
A search for an unknown Mr.
or Miss "Blood" will be launched next week. This unknown
will be minus one pint of blood
—the 15,000 given on the campus.
Blood is actually worth $25
a pint and to celebrate the occasion of having collected an equivalent of $375,000 there will be
a prize awarded. Rumours are
numerous as to what the prize
will be, but it is certain it will
be well worth a pint of blood.
Already..inany of the.IaeulUes
are preparing for the big event
in anticipation of a very interesting award.
But this is only one of the features planned for next Week.

Over 3000 students slept, played cards, drank coffee and
cheered the Dodgers Thursday afternoon as a handful of people
at AMS general meeting discussed a proposed $63,000 alma
mater budget.

CROWDED CAF was one of the reasons for the poor attendance at yesterday's general meeting in the armories. Only about 900 students turned up at the AMS meeting to*

Mussoc Calls
On Students
For Auditions
Students from all faculties
made a point of staying away
from the meeting as the handful
who attended thrashed out treasurer Allan Goldsmith's proposed $2 fee hike, and defeated two
attempts to amend the budget.
Goldsmith presented two budgets, one based on the present
$10 per student grant and the
other based on a possible $2 fee
increase whicli is being voted on
today. Both were approved.
The two amendments were attempted by Engineers and ex-
treasurer Gerry Duclos. Both
were defeated, the engineers' by
only a narrow margin.
Just 28 more redshirts would
have made successful the engineers' attempt to swing $325
from Radsoc, Players' Club, and
special' events grants into the
coffers of nine engineering clubs.
But  the engineers,  notorious
for their "spirit" had their request defeated by their own apathy.
If the fee hike is approved, it
will mean a boost from $10 to
$12 student. The increase would
also raise from 85 cents to $140
the average grant to each
student in the undergraduate societies.
If students approve the boost,
?3 more clubs, who now are not
getting a penny from AMS, will
receive money.
Women's Athletic Directorate
would get over $2000 more if
the hike is passed. •

Practically everything that can be said has been said
on today's fee increase referendum. Student Council, in
putting the referendum before the students, has shown that
it feels the increase is imperative.
Every undergraduate society on the campus represented ui lust week's USC meeting, including Engineering,
Law, Arts, Agriculture ot al., expresrsd approval of thc request lor the $2.00 increase. Even the Literary and Scientific Executive and the Men's Athletic Directorate, strange
bedfellows as they are, agree that students should vote in
the affirmative on the question. And we hope that the
Publication Board has made clear its approval of the increase.
Students should understand that a two-thirds majority
is necessary for passing of the referendum and that a vote
of 20 percent of the student enrolment is required. No
matter what percentage of voters approve the referendum,
it will not pass unless at least 11.00 students vote.
In actuality this means that those who do not vote for
the increase will be voting against it. Don't let your indifference record a negative ballot.

Stengel vs Goldsmith
To students familiar with recent years'
riotous Alma Mater Society meetings, Thursday's edition of the three-ring circus must
have seemed relatively dull.
Lack of any really outstanding issues
coupled with the competition of the Bums and
those damnlucky Yankees made students conspicuous by their absence. University Radio
Society found itself in a difficult predicament
as the time for the noon meeting approached.
Faced with a reprimand from Student
Council if it defied the AMS ruling requiring
all activities to shut down for the meeting,
URS also faced the uncontrolled and unmatched wrath of the campus series fans if
they suddenly went off the air leaving Robinson and Furillo on base with Duke Snider
stepping up to take his licks.
URS wisely stopped the broadcast, but it
is doubtful if many students rushed from
Stengel and Dressen to the 1953-54 budget.
The caf and other campus lounging spots
were full, apparently indicating that students
do not particularly care how their money is
spent or their program administered.
As to the actual budget itself, AMS treasurer Allan Goldsmith has done a good job.
on it and the students at the meeting seemed
to realize this. His detailed breakdown showed those students who bothered to look at the
special edition of the Ubyssey how the money
Campus Chaff
Things must be pretty dull over at the
Engineering building these bleak autumn
days. So dull in fact, that the big wheels
among the Sciencemen have begun to spend
their spare time down at the Pub offices.
The offenders will probably be run out
of the Royal Order of Redshirts when the
news comes out but the bitter truth is that
the vice-president of the EUS and a few of
his cringing cohorts have been snooping
around the Brock, longingly looking in from
the outside at civilization.
Actually I guess we should feel sorry for
our stumble-bum friends from the concrete
dungeon on the other side of the campus
tracks as they don't get much of a chance to
experience the higher type of life evident in
the Pub, but somehow I think I can fight
back the sympathetic feeling.
After all, how friendly can you get with
a person who is unfamiliar with the common
medium of communication? At first when the
V-P and his friends began to linger around
outside the door we took pity on them and
sent them into our circulation office with a
cute young freshette who amused them with
wooden blocks and sign language but this
type of thing can go only so far. Besides, we
have found better uses for our freshettes on
the Ubyssey.
I can see the Engineer's point of view in
the development and it is pretty hard not to
side with them. Picture il yourself—cooped
up in the building all year, your tympanic
membranes gradually being disintegrated by
the continual rehearsal of the Engineering
song; your molars crumbling from the compulsory noon meal of rock samples and unsold
Slipsticks; the ever-lasting body building
exercises which guarantee you a physique
which will make it easy to steal books from
freshettes—it's not a pretty picture and the
Engineers should not be judged harshly until the full aspect of the question have been
I know we on the Ubyssey were perhaps a
trifle severe with the first group of Science-
men who dared make the trip across here
but now that we understand the horrible conditions under which  thev are  forced  to sur-
would be allotted if the fee increase goes
through, and how it will be miserly compressed if the referendum is turned down.
The defeat of Mr. Duclos* motion can be
interpreted to show that students believe our
debts are being rettred at a satisfactory rate.
The Engineers' bid for a larger slice of
the AMS melon was as illogical as It was
audacious. Spokesmen for the EUS argued
that internationally - affiliated clubs under
the EUS be given grants outside of the regular undergraduate society grant which the
Engineers get, and which, incidentally is the
largest on the campus. '
The fact that every other undergraduate
society could use this same excuse as a plea
for more of the precious money did not impress the Engineers. Apparently they feci
that the EUS should be on a different level
than tyther undergraduate societies.
If their motion would have been approved
Goldsmith could have expected a deluge of
requests for finances from dozens of little
clubs which undoubtedly would have mysteriously sprung up in Commerce, Arts, Phys

vive, our attitude has softened* somewhat and
it is hard not to shed at least a few crocodile
tears for their benefit, the poor wretches.
Actually we don't begrudge them the
space in our offices if they want to come in
to keep warm and stare disbelievingly at the
first females they ha^e seen since the spring,
it's all right with us—but the disturbing thing
is that their advances haven't stopped there.
Last Monday night three of them showed up
at our print shop as the Tuesday Ubyssey was
going to press and begged that an article be
toned down so that the dear old Engineering
Undergraduate Society, rah, rah, would not
be cast in an unfavourable light.
The senior editor in question is a chartered member of the SPCA and always helps old
grandmothers across intersections so he obligingly added a patented Hollywood-and-
they-lived-happily-ever-after ending to the
article. The V-P and his friends were tucked
in their beds happy but the episode disturbed a few people on the Ubyssey.
Where does this lovey-dovey attitude
stop? Since prehistoric times the Pub has
been out-of-bounds to Engineers and Ubyssey reporters who were last seen heading west
from I ho bus stop were always listed as missing in action. ,
As f mentioned before, if our friends
simply can't stand the atmosphere over there
Ihey are welcome to come in out of the rain
and curl up in an unused corner in the Pub
as long us they don't interfere with the
more serious business.
Already one girl from the Totem has done
her bit for civiliaztion by attempting to
teach the rudimentary principles of bridge
to the fearless three. One of them is still
stubbornly insisting on trying lo use his
slide-rule but once the others erased the E—
MC2 which was stamped on their cranium,
they progressed  fairly well, considering.
The point is this, hoys, if things are actually that bad over al the Engineering building you e;m sleep under our desk, but don't
play around with the papers on the desk,
The Ubyssey:
"Since the dominant topic of
our century appears to be sex,"
let us consider further some of
the implications of statements
such as appeared in Tuesday's
The writer suggests that
whereas religion was central
in man's thinking in the past,
today man's mind is focused
on sex. While there is much
evidence for this statement, I
dislike the way that the editor
accepts it and seems to approve
its implications. Religion is
concerned with the whole of
life, and it is not unhealthy
for man to recognize it as the
topic of the day. But when all
of man's attention and thinking and motivation is focused
on a single part of his being,
then this seems to me to indicate a strange sense of values.
Perhaps it is tlmelfor us to begin to consider the totality of
life, and to see its lhter-relat-
Our society is nominally at
least, a Christian society. The
Christian faith has something
to say about man's relationship
to God, and to his fellowman.
It has something to say about
man and woman relationships.
Unlike certain religions that
look upon the material world
as evil, Christianity recognizes
that all life is of God's creation, including the material
world. This material world is
Man's relationships in society can reveal this good, or deny

The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:—
At last summer's International Union of Students Conference, NFCUS was asked to join
the IUS. This proposal was
brought up at Wednesday's
Student Council meeting and
defeated on the grounds that
the IUS was a Communist dominated organization and that
it offered thc Communists another approach for propaganda. The Students Council ot
UBC went on record as 'urging NFCUS to refrain from affiliation with the IUS.''
However, NFCUS was offered an alternate proposal this
summer—to become an "associate" member of IUS; not being connected with its policies
but being able to take part in
Cultural festivals and Student
meets. Ken Farris, SCM head,
spoke in favor of the latter
proposal, believing that' it
would be valuable to maintain
contact with students of other
As President of the SPC, I
would like to congratulate
Farris on hi.s stand. I believe
an associate membership such
as this would be a big step
towards promoting international     understanding     between
students of all lands—east and
west. Surely the many thousands of students, from both
sides of the Iron Curtain, that
are affiliated wilh the IUS arc-
not all hard-bitten communists.
With world tension like it is
now it would be invaluable for
Canadian Students to get to
know Students of the East,
their culture, their habits and
their' countries.

VI. Financial Policy 1953-54
At the end of September. 1953,
the current debts of the Society
exceeded cash available by nearly $1000. In other words, if wc
had to pay everything we now
owe we would be $1000 short.
Our worst debt is $9000 owim: to
the architects and contractors of
the War Memorial Gymnasium,
which has been owing for over 3
years. Although the Society's
surplus is $23,000, it is tied up
in loans to the Film Society, the
V.O.C. cabin, the Men's Athletic ,
committee, and to the War Mem- '
orial Gymnasium Fund.
to protect the Society's reputation amongst the Easiness men
and firms in the community, by
the payment of the debts of tne
Society as soon as possible.
While money from student fees
will go entirely to student activities, in allocating revenue from -
other sources first consideration
will be given to the Society's

Birds Meet Centre
In Conference Tilt
"Chance To Win"
Says Our Coach
The once hapless 'Birds take
on the red-faced Central Washington Wildcats in the opening
Evergreen Conference tilt. The
Wildcats are seething as a result of their 25-8 loss to Whitman last Saturday.
Coach Coryell, peering through
the scouting report he received
of the game, said, "If we can
stop their passing attack, we can
beat those guys."
In particular, the Coach was
referring to Bill Harriman, returning Wildcat letterman quarterback who threw 18 passes
last* week and completed six of
them. The UBC squad has been
drilling in pass defence this past
weak but Coryell has not forgotten the opposing running
They are Don Pierce and Don
Trombley. Pierce is highly rated
as the best ball carrier on the
'Cats squad — strengthened by
his average of 6.5 yards per
carry last week. Trombley is no
slouch, however, picking up an
average seven yards running
from the T formation.
Still deep in thought over^
the scout's info, the Coach mumbled, "The other schools are
more than a little interested in
us. Central had* two scouts here
last week when we beat the
"We tried a couple of things
in the second half that you
won't see this Saturday."
The 'Birds will run into
stiff competition when they hit
the average 195 pound line. The
team has 21 returning lettermen
to add to the difficulties. Last
year's record for the 'Cats was
two won and four lost in conference play.
Joining the ranks of the injured who will not play this
weekend are Dave Stowe with
a bad leg and Irving Knight
with a charley horse. Charley
James and Peter Gregory will
not be playing either
