Greeks Unlikely To Get Ultimatum
Greek letter societies at UBC with discriminatory clauses in their charters are in
little danger of being thrown off campus.
This has been the growing opinion of informed students over the 10 anonths since
the AMS general meeting of March 19, 1953,
when students voted to ask Faculty Council
to issue an utlimatum giving the Greeks one
year to remove discriminatory clauses from
their constitutions.
Added weight was given to this opinion
Thursday by President Norman MacKenzie,
who admitted to The Ubyssey that he personally doesn't favour such a move.
"This is a student affair and should be
dealt with by the students," said Dr. MacKenzie. "Fraternities and sororities were
originally brought here only because the
students and alumni wanted them."
He added: "This institution has always
been proud of its student autonomy."
Besides, said the President, the action
suggested to Faculty Council is too general.
"We'd like to co-operate, if the students
would recommend  a practical and detailed
w^y what they would like to have done," he
Dr. MacKenzie had two things to stress:
he is not in favour of discrimination on racial
or religious grounds; and he could not speak
for Faculty Council as a group.
What action has Faculty Council taken?
It has put the question into the hands of Dean
Gage and his committee on student affairs for
study, said the President.
Dean Gage said he has yet to examine the
situation, but he thought banning discriminatory Greeks from the campus was "the last
action to take."
"They should be able to mend their own
affairs if we give them all the help we can,"
said the Dean.
The decision to confront campus Greeks
with an ultimatum was first made at the
spring general meeting of 1952, but the motion passed at the time asked only that discriminatory clauses be removed "within a
reasonable time."

For   Unity
Arriving on the campus for a
conference with UBC student
leaders Dec. 12, NFCUS president Tony Enriquez expressed
strong feeling for the need of
National unity among Canadian
University students.
Enriquez said at a meeting
with UBC NFCUS delegate Ivan
Feltham and Council members
that in order to build this unity
a strong central secreteriat was
Judges criticized affirmative
speakers on grounds that they
didn't get to the facts, and also
that two of the speakers exceeded their time limits.
Perry declared that Dr. Kinsey
is a threat to the basis of western
civilization — the home, and that
by the same stroke constitutes
a threat to the defense of the
western  world.
Mothers, he said, are foundation of the home, and with Kin-
sey's statement that women at
the age of 35 are in their sexual
prime, it will mean that they
will be "flaunting their hips in
every pub and tavern while
father sits disconsolate at home."

From now on, he continued,

Remember UBC Needs
Friday, January 8,1954
We hope Premier Bennett and Education
Minister Bonner aren't overlooking the needs
ajf the University of B.C. in planning for the
decade of unbounded prosperity and possible
SO percent'population increase Mr. Bennett
has been predicting for B.C.
'•'''■ It Would be curtailing B.C.'s brain-power
to let UBC lag behind such expansion by failing to give it the $10 million in permanent
buildings it must have to do a first-class Job.
A booming B.C. will certainly require tiie
engineers and doctors, lawyers and social
workers, skilled agriculturists and many
Other valuable leaders UBC could provide.
But without an early building program, UBC
#on't be able to do its best job.
Mr. Bonner should be particularly understanding and sympathetic. As a law
•tudent he saw in working detail UBC's magnificent postwar handling of 11,000 students
p#r year. He must realize vividly that while
ttmy huts and aging temporary buildings can v
be made do a makeshift job in such an emergency, only permanent buildings can provide
a good university.
UBC still lacks half the permanent buildings it needs. It could get them all in five
.years if Victoria would start a series of annual building grants in the budget $2
nual $2 million building grants in the budget
being prepared for the spring legislature.
It could have a permanent arts building,
medical science building, residences, agriculture building and accommodation for schools
of commerce, education, architecture and
social work.
Today's grade and high school population
makes it certain that by 1960, the normal
UBC student body will be nearly doubled
to 10,000. If B.C. population climbs as rapidly
as Mr. Bennett thinks it will, demands on
UBC could be much higher.
It would be shameful to force UBC to
waste increasing amounts of money maintaining obsolete army huts and temporary buildings to meet the demand when the money
could be going toward permanent buildings.
Yet UBC will have no choice—and Victoria
will-have to put up the maintenance money—
unless a building program starts very soon.
Nor should Victoria overlook UBC's need
for more operating money in the budget. Last
year Mr. Bennett's minority government did
increase the operating grant by about 10 per-
' cent to $2.5 milion. This was less than half
the $6 million cost of running UBC. Other
funds came from students' fees, federal grants
and private gifts.
Much of last year's increase, however,,
consisted of a guaranteed grant to meet medical school expansion costs, and of civil
service salary adjustments for non-teaching
staff. It permitted some small increases in
faculty salaries but not nearly enough to overcome the lag of 50 percent behind the cost of
living increase in recent years."
Keeping a first-class teaching staff together is just as vital to UBC as proper buildings. But as President Norman A. M. MacKenzie has frequently warned, it can't be
done unless UBC can pay salaries to prevent
faculty members from regretfully accepting
much better offers from other universities
and from booming private industry.

Minority Rule (Or Sour Grapes)
The absurdities of leaning over backward
till you are flat on your back were never more
clearly illustrated than at the recent Canadian University Press Conference.
The CUP is made up of 21 English-
language papers and three French-language
papers. The member papers of CUP have always recognized the equality of the French-
language papers and have secured a separate
trophy to be awarded to the best French-
language paper, realizing the difficulties of
judging the university papers from Quebec
on the same basis with English-language
The host paper also supplied a translator
for the Canadien delegates who insisted on
speaking in French. A French-speaking
speaker was also provided to match the usual
Nevertheless, delegates from the universities of Laval, Montreal and Ottawa entered
the conference planning to get a 50-50 split
in everything for their 3-21 minority.
Thanks to some annoying delaying tactics
and some compromising support from other
delegates who also had axes to grind, the
delegates from the three papers achieved
their purpose. In future a handbook prepared
by CUP will cost twice the estimated figure
because French copies must be printed for
the three papers. The minority of three pushed through a resolution stating that French
is to be "equally official," whatever that
And, most important of all, the judge for
the editorial contest must be a bi-lingual
French-speaking judge one year and a bilingual English-speaking judge the next. This
means that INVARIABLY the judge will
have to come from Ontario or Quebec. The
judges are newspaper editors and it has become more apparent in recent years that
newspapermen from the west have a different
idea of what comprises a good university
newspaper than do newspapermen from the
And since the chances of finding a bi-lingual newspaper editor in BC or on the
prairies is about as great as the chances of
finding a golfer in Quebec at this time of
year, it means that a university newspaper
from Western Canada will never win the
Bracken Trophy, awarded to the paper with
the best editorials.
We're mad.

AB Stract
by Ab Kent
It has been drawn to my at
ten tion through the rather
forcible medium of a loud
hailer car immediately outside my window at Fort Camp
that the annual Greek Letter
Societies' Mardi Gras celebration is approaching. For the
benefit of new students it
might be well to offer a word
of explanation.
As any student of at least
second year standing knows, but
may disdain to explain, Mardi
Gras at UBC is a two-day event
popularly regarded the the most
important of the social season;
when students draw from the
bank what little money remains
and try to stretch it over the
two days in public devotion to
cultured insobriety. Few are
able to elasticize their resources
and all proceed through the remainder of the term in miserly
But the Commodore continues to be packed to capacity
each year. Ii seems that to a
man, students will leap at the
opportunity to become uninhibited to the greater gjory of
the Greeks and whatever charitable organization receives the
Mardi Gras li also the time
when women wear their dresses
cut lower in the neck and their
faces pinched into a perpetual
wreath of smiles as if to offset
the deficiency in material. Also,
there is a chorus line, or rather
two chorus lines to eliminate
jealousy. One is for short girls,
the other for amazons. This idea
caters to the heterogeneousness
of the bald-headed row, too.
To assist patrons in overcoming their common restraints, the,
Mardi Gras theme is usually
along bizarre or primitive lines,
like Mardi Gras in Hades or
Mardi Gras in Havana, which
have served for the past two
years. The committee has gone
all out for 1994, however, and
transported the lower sector of
New Orleans to 872 Granville
St. In addition, a new wrinkle
has been added in the form of
the words "fancy dress" oh each
ticket. If there is a sure-fire
method of getting people to let
their hair down, it's a fancy
dress ball.
So how about a few suggestions on what to wear? As long
as sex is playing a vital role
in the celebration, why not take
advantage of  it?
Heddy Migraine, that delectable bit who makes Poultry
Husbandry 347 worthwhile,
might go to Mardi Gras in a
pre-shrunk Bikini wearing large
placards (on celluloid) covered
with telephone numbers. It
shouldn't be hard for Province
readers to guess that she represented a call girl. It might be
fitting to warn her, however,
that she would be solely responsible for handling her own
Her "boyfriend, the empty-
headed vassal who asks all the
stupid questions in Money and
Banking, could slip on a pair
of plastic trousers, plastic raincoat and matching plastic headgear and go as a . . . well, he
could paste a Safeway label
across his chest and pretend
he's a packaged apple.
Better yet, if you're still open
to suggestion, how about going
invisible and not show up at
all, thereby avoiding chancery i
court, hangover and the morality squad
No matter what you decide,
though, don't let the Concise
Oxford definition of Mardi Gras
fool you. As far as UBC is concerned it's the beginning of carnival, not the end, in spite of
the result.

Avon Hit
"You can't take it with you"
is a trite expression but it is also
the title of Dorothy Davies' excellent production at the Avon
Theatre starring Charles Coburn.
The play takes place in the
living room of the zaniest family
imaginable. The father makes
firecrackers in the basement; the
mother is an aspiring authoress-
artist who is a flop as both; one'
of the daughters Is a hopeful
ballerina: her husband is an
amateur printer - xylophone
player and the grandfather is a
snake collector who believes in
living life without worrying
about anything.
The impractibility of the philosophy in the play is the cause
of most of the amusing incidents.
Of the nine people living in the
grandfather's house only one
appears to wortc.
Standouts among the very good
cast were Charles Coburn as the
grandfather, Verlle Cooter as the
un-dlplomatic mother, and Mar-
got Conine as the ballerina, Essie.
The sanest member of the
family, Alice, whose love affair
with Tony Klrby, her employer's
son, and its complications provide
a lot of the humor in the play
was portrayed by Eve Newltt.
Both she and Bob. Woodward as
Tony lacked , naturalness and
appeared to be trying too hard
to be convincing.

produced another motion and one which contained two changes: the ultimatum was extended to include all campus groups, and the
time limit was fixed at one year.
And since authority over Greek letter
societies lies in the hands of the administration alone (section 84b of the University Act),
the ultimatum was turned over to Faculty
Council with a request that they back it up.
One difference between the two meetings
remained, and it is one which will probably
be referred to in the future: whereas the first
meeting was attended by 1500 students, the
second meeting passed its motion with an at
tendance of only a few hundred, although
nearly a quorum had been present at the
start of the meeting.
March 19 of this year is still the deadline
for campus clubs under the jurisdiction of
the Alma Mater Society—a warning bulletin
was issued to them by President Ivan Feltham September 3, 1953.
But fraternities and sororities are facing
no threat at the moment. And when Dean
Gage cbmpletes his study, and Faculty Council meets shortly afterwards, there is little
chance of an ultimatum being tossed at the
Greeks.    '

'Birds Chances are Good
As Conference Underway
'Birds On  The  Road,
Play CPS And Central
After spending the last six ye^ars inhabiting the cellar in
the Evergreen Conference the UBC Thunderbirds begin Conference play this weekend with a team that is a definite contender for one of the top spots &
Tonight the 'Birds travel to
Tacoma to play College of Puget
Sound and then take the long
trip over the mountains to do
battle with the Central Washington Wildcats at Ellensburg on
Saturday night.
Both games might prove to be
sweet revenge for the 'Birds.
Last year CPS hung it on the
'Birds twice jhy scores of 78-70
and 79-55 while Central followed
suit and won by scores of 56-50
and 89-60. This year's edition of
the 'Birds has a definite chance
of beating, and, as a matter of
fact, should beat both CPS and
CPS finished second in the
conference last year but have
been considerably weakened this
year by the loss of All-Conference center Jack Mayberrry and-
will be sporting a very young
team. The Loggers lost out in
the finals of the Totem Tournament to the Eilers but showed
that they have one of the fastest
teams ln the Conference. Tonight's game will be a close one
but If the 'Birds can keep hustling for four full quarters they
should win.
The Wildcats from Central
finished just one notch above the
'Birds last year but have not
improved as much as the Thunderbirds have. They have a
couple of dangerous scorers in
6'4" Bill Jurgens and 8'2" Bill
Baber but like CPS, Central's
account is on youth. If the Birds
are going to win any games this
year they should beat Central.
The 'Birds of 1054 are the b/st
team to come out of this campus
since the 'Wonder-Birds' of 1946.
They have both experience and
bench strength something they
have sadly lacked in the post.
In 6'8" John McLeod the 'Birds
have one of the outstanding forwards in the Conference. In his
first year of competition last
year John scored 351 points and
this year he should do even

UBC Braves
Play Kates
For Title
A tie or a win is all the UBC
Braves need in tomorrow's crucial contest at the stadium with
the Kats to regain the Carmichael
Cup, which is symbolic of Vancouver Second Division rugby
Both fifteens have thusfar
remained undefeated in eight
league contests; but the Kats
have a tie as a blemish on their
record, and thus nothing less
than a victory will give them
the silverware.
The first division Chiefs will
again be looking for their first
win of the season, after six unsuccessful attempts, when they
meet South Burnaby at Douglas
Fitba Underway
After Layoff
The Varsity soccer XI begins the second half of their Coast
League 'B' Division schedule this Sunday when they battle
Royal Oaks at West Point Grey Park.
The Birds are currently in a*- :	
fourth place tie with the Royal
Oaks squad and hope to take sole
possession of this spot on Sunday. Neither team has exactly set
the league on fire, owning identical records of two wins, four
losses, and four draws.
In their only previous encounter the teams fought to a
draw, with the Birds playing
their worst game of the season.
Varsity fans are remembering
the record of last year's team
and hoping for a repeat performance. It was after the new year
that last year's edition of the
Birds suddenly caught fire and
did not lose a game for the
remainder of the season. They
climbed to within two points of
the league championship before
the season ran out on them.
Ed Luckett's Birds have shown
considerable improvement in recent outings and a repeat of their
form against the New Westminster Royals should gave the Birds
a win on Sunday.
Meanwhile the UBC Chiefs
open play in the first preliminary round of the Provincial Cup
against L & K Lumber at Coil-
federation Park.
The game should be a battle
of defense as each team boasts a
defense which has the best goals
against average in its respective

Kerrie Six
At Arena
Coach Dick Mitchell brings thc
UBC Thunderbirds hockey team
back to the ice tonight after a
long Christmas vacation to face
the Kerries at 9:00 p.m. in thc
Kerrisdale Arena.
Although the team could use
two good forwards they should
be able to resume their climb
to the top spot in the league.
This possibility is greatly
strengthened by the addition of
scarry Bob Gilhooley, former
Calgary Stampcder, to the
One of Coach Mitchell's pleas-
anter problems is choosing a
stasting goalie from Howie Thomas and Don Anderson. Both boys
are good goal-tenders and so far
have been alternating between
the pipes.
Assisting Gilhooley on defence
will be reliable Cliff Frame and
capable Bob Geigerich, a rookie
from a series of injuries and
Morris Cunningham, a good two-
way player, will give the team
a lot of support on the forward
wall. Ted Sims, formerly of thc
Nelson Maple Leafs, was out to
practice on Tuesday night and
may see action tonight.
There will be an important meeting of the. Track Club
at noon today in room 312 of the new gym. There will be
a guest speaker and future meets will be discussed.
Anyone who is interested in track and would like to
join the club is invited to attend.

Top Conference Teams
When the Evergreen Conference Basketball play gets

will be the start of one of the
closest races that the Confer
ence has seen in a number of
The team to beat is definitely the Whitworth Pirates
The Pirates have one of the
tallest teams in the country.
The three largest monsters are

UBC is a vastly improved
club and should jump from the
cellar to fourth place. Coach
Pomfret admits that this is the
year for the 'Birds to produce'.
If the 'Birds get hot there is
an outside chance that they
could slip into third place
ahead of Eastern but they have
lo make very few, if any, mistakes.
CPS, Central and Western
Washington should fight it out
for the bottom nnd three spots.
CPS is the best of thc lot and

they could give a lot of clubs
a lot of trouble.
