Bloody   Riots
Soak   Redshirts
Engineers Peter Shields (left) and brother George
pay the supreme penalty for inglorious blood drive defeat
at the hands of Commerce.
Commercinarie^—approaching the blood drive in serious vein—scored a whopping 83 per cent of quota to a
pitiful 82 per cent by the redshirts.
EUS president Ralph Sultan also took the icy plunge
in the lily pond Friday following announcement of campus
blood drive results.
Submersive tactics of the Money Men gained little,
however, for soaked Engineers returned the compliment immediately afterwards.
The watery joust ended in a draw as soggy Engineers
and boggy Commercemen waddled away after the ducking.

Plans for the annual evening
Mock Parliament session have
been junked this year.
Parliamentary Forum steering
committee Monday voted three
to two against holding the session Thursday.
Conservatives. CCF and
LPP voted against the plan
calling it "too late in the
year."
Social Credit president Mel
Smith voted in favor of holding
a session along with Liberal Club
president Darrell Anderson.
Alternate Social Credit plan
to hold the session Wednesday evening "was pooh poohed
by the committee." according
to Smith.
Social Crediters, scheduled to
form the opposition to the Liberals following campus wide pol
itical elections, called the can
cellation:
"An insult to those students
who voted in the Mock Parliament election. The CCF.
Conservatives and LPP are all
against a session while the Liberal representative left the
steering committee meeting in
a temper," after the vote.
STUDENT SOUGHT

whereabouts of Alexander J.
Grovue, who was in attendance at the University of British Columbia until October.

Withdrawal    Vote
Declared    Invalid
By SANDY ROSS
UBC students will decide-in a referendum Thursday on
whether or not to withdraw from the National Federation of
Canadian University Students.
'Council decided Monday to hold the referendum since the
decision to withdraw made at March 15's General Meeting was
constitutionally invalid.
No quorum was present at the meeting. AMS president
Don Jabour had ruled that a quorum was present since 1100
seats set up in the Armoury were nearly all filled. A later
check revealed that only 1000 seats had been set up.
1000 students constitute a quorum, and only 662 voted
March 15.
The referendum Thursday will give students two choices;
(1) That UBC "reform NFCUS from without" by getting
out of the" national organization, take the initiative in setting
up a more streamlined organization.
(2) That UBC attempt to reform NFCUS from within,
by remaining a member of the organization until next Fall's
annual conference. If no satisfactory reform measures were
nstituted at the Fall convention, UBC would then withdraw.
In effect, UBC would be giving NFCUS "one more chance."
AMS President Don Jabour stressed the importance of
voting Monday. "The decision students make Thursday will
affect nearly 100,000 students," he said.
Polling booths will be located in the Quad, Brock Hall,
the Library, and at various other points on the campus. AMS
cards must be pra«tented before students can vole.
Full pros and cons of the controversy will be aired in
Thursday's  Ubyssey.

Outstanding Move
Student Council's decision 4o hold a referendum on the
question of NFCUS withdrawal is a wise and a timely one.
As everyone knows, the decision reached at March 15's
General Meeting was all wrong. No quorum was present, and
AMS president Don Jabour was an innocent victim of misinformation when he ruled that there was.
The mistake will be corrected Thursday, Students will
be able to arrive at a carefully-considered, rational decision
on the question—something that a General Meeting almost
never permits.
Students should reflect, as they %cast their ballots Thursday, upon the value of General Meetings at UBC. They might
recall the chaos that reigned at last week's meeting, and at
many another meeting before  it.
By way of contrast, they might pause to consider the
rather impressive merits of the referendum system: No shouting. No waving of arms and emotionally-charged oratory. Less
bloc voting and less mobbish stupidity. No embarassing aftermaths in the forms of a second hastily-called general meeting
to remedy the mistakes of the first.
It's a pleasant picture.
The NFCUS schmozzle only proves what an increasing
number of people have been thinking for a long time: that
U.BC is getting too big for General Meetings.
Democracy can only be effective when the electorate are
reasonably well-informed, and have time to stop and think
about what they're voting for.
At our General Meetings, an insufficient number of mostly
ill-informed students slouch through a tawdry circus of impassioned verbal whip-cracking, and finally vote on whim for
the side that cracks the whip the loudest.
Part of this, of course, is the fault of the students themselves. If a person doesn't take the trouble to acquaint himself
with the facts of an issue, no voting system yet devised can
guarantee an intelligent decision.
But a referendum system, providing that the right to ultimate recourse to a General Meeting is still preserved, would
at least eliminate most of tho technical evils inherent in the
Genral Meeting.
Think it over.
Outstanding Job
A criticism that has been leveled at The Ubyssey is that
it has not commented, or at least criticised, enough the affairs
of this year's Student Council. Tins is a valid criticism but
there was a reason for it.
Under the extremely able leadership of President Ron
Bray, this year's Council was one of the best this campus lias
seen in recent years. Bray was fortunate in being ably assisted
by vice-president Ron Longstaffe and treasurer Geoff Conway
both of whom had a firm gra.->p of campus activities and problems and both of whom did outstanding jobs.
A great deal was accomplished, all of which was nut evident to the student body. Projects like Brock Extension, improved eating facilities and a sounder athletic setup were
evident and are indicative ot the job done.
Wc don't belieYe in criticism fur criticism's sake nor do we
believe in constantly searching for small errors to carp about.
The lack of criticism was directly atrnbutab'e ta the excellent
service the 1955-56 Student Council gave tj the cair^us.
Guelfs and Ghibellihes
By BRUCE HUTCHISON
The Financial Post
In the primitive wilds where I live, and probably even where the civilized reader
lives, it is pretty difficult to see any public issue of importance in the Parliament
of Canada.
There is business of importance, to be sure, but on the surface no issue of
principle for which government or opposition is willing to fight, and if necessary
perish. Politics is being conducted at the moment only on the principle of safety first,
usually the most dangerous principle that any party or politician can follow.
If the surface is quiet, almost to the point of rigor mortis, two great issues of principle can be detected below
the surface.
One of them, which agitates
every thoughtful Canadian —
except the members of Parliament —- is the issue of personal freedom, as raised by
Mr. Duplessis, newsprint legislation, his Padlock Law, now
before the Supreme Court, and
his Freedom of Worship Act,
which undertakes to infringe
all aspects of freedom.
The second issue, closely associated with the first, has
hardly touched the public consciousness yet. I mean the developing struggle between the
nation and the provinces.
PROVINCES ARE TRUE
OPPOSITION LEADERS
As noted here before, the
provinces, their power suppressed by the necessities of
the last war. are now re-
emerging like a coiled spring
as the true leaders of the opposition.
Thus on one side of thc nation we find Mr. Duplessis operating almost as if he were
the head of an autonomous
state, his latest act of sovereignty being to reward friendly newspapers with cheap
paper.
On the other side Premier
Bennett, of British Columbia,
has declared total war on the
national government and invited all other parties to join
him in demanding that his
province be given a privileged
fiscal position in confederation
and the luxury to which, by a
wise providence, it is entitled.
No doubt Mr. Duplessis and
Mr. Bennett would be horrified at the suggestion that they
should get together, but in fact
they are already close together in terms of policy and
principle.
Both of them, in slightly different versions, represent thc
same proposition — namely,
that the interests of the provinces come before the interests
of the nation. Mr. Duplessis
openly proclaims this "compact
theory" of Confederation, as
the historians call it. Mr. Bennett may not proclaim it openly, if he has ever heard of it,
but he practises it in dealing
with   Ottawa.
There is no space here to
consider the financial and other
disputes involved in this
struggle between the perimeter
of   the  nation  and   its  centre.
The important this is that the
true nature, and the consequences of the struggle should
be understood.
In the issues of personal
freedom and of national versus
provincial power we are dealing not with some technical
quarrel of law or finance but
with the oldest and most fundamental question of Canadian
life. — whether, in short, the
wrenching strains of a diverse
country ran be compromised,
whether our national is stronger than our local patriotism.
There can be, I think, no
doubt about the answer if the
people once understand the
question. The whole history
of Canada is a successful compromise between these pressures and the compromise was
possible because national has
always proved stronger than
local patriotism.
In every test the Canadian
people have done what they
thought essential to the welfare and survival of the nation. The local patriots might
thrive for a time by appealing to regional prejudice and
parochial greed, but not one
of them ever succeeded in national  politics,  not one.
Mr. Duplessis, for example,
has and can have no ounce of
power outside Quebec, which
is represented in Parliament by
his enemy, Mr. St. Laurent.
Even inside Quebec Mr. Duplessis depends upon a vote
loaded in favor of the country
ridings. Mr. Bennett, a new
comer still rather wet behind
the ears, is rapidly destroying
chances for realization of his
ambition to be a national
statesman by asserting British
Columbia's natural superiority
and thus antagonizing all the
other provinces.
But the historic forces of
national unity must always be
kept in repair lest they rust.
They require leadership, and
leadership requires skill, courage and great personal risks.
The   true   indictment    of    the
Government,    the    Opposition 	
and the whole Parliament of """^^^

At some point, if its power is
sufficiently challenged, any national government must resist
or abdicate, lead or decay. By
a kind of historic rhythm every
prime minister must choose
between these alternatives. So
must the Opposition.
EVERY GOVERNMENT
MUST RESIST OR
ABDICATE
Probably, therefore, it was
inevitable that Mr. St. Laurent
and Mr. Drew must eventually
encounter the supreme trial of
all their predecessors. If either
of them decides to face it outright, to appeal to the deepest
instincts of Canadians, to put
the nation clearly above local
interest and short-run gains,
we may be sure he will receive
Canada's invariable answer.
The people are currently
confused, distracted from great
affairs by a boom and utterly
bored by politics. Given bold
leadership instead of' safety-
first, they will act, I venture to
predict, as they have always
acted. Our statesmen may be
tired by the prodigious labors
of the last generation. The
people arc not tired. They
were never so energetic or so

Blazers   For
Councillors?
UBC's new Student Council
may take on a two-tone aspect
next year, if highly vocal female Councillors get their way.
Lady Councillors Kathy Archibald, Lynda Gates, Peggy
Andreen, Charlotte Warren and
Maureen McNeill pressed for
light-blue Council Blazers at
Monday's   meeting.
All councillors receive free,
tailored blue blazers Upon assuming office, at a cost of about
$40 each.
Formerly, all have been navy
blue.
Female Councillors claimed
the navy blue blazers "weren't
feminine," and pressed for something in bay-blue that could be
worn on all occasions.
USC Chairman Robin Scott
will decide this week whether
or not their request will be
granted.
Said Dr. Jones: "The only way
to achieve a high standard of
living is to begin with the practice   of   brotherhood."
In his address on "The Fight
Against Discrimination" D r.
Jones pointed out the need for
harmony among peoples of the
world from the point of view
of religious motivation and democracy.
"Minority groups must be
granted the same - rights and
privileges that the majority
group wants for itself," he said.
Dr. Jones pointed out that there
is no majority group in Canada
where more than half the population is not of Anglo-Saxon origin.
"If we want to put an end to
discrimination each person must
begin witTi himself," he said in
outlining the means by which
the fight against discrimination
can be carried out.
"We must get to know people
of other groups, to take them
into our homes, into our fraternities and into our lives. We
must judge people as individuals
and not in groups."

College of Education
Ready By September
t By MURRAY RITCHIE
The spanking new College of Education building will be
ready by September.
Buildings and Grounds officials Monday expressed confidence that progress to date is sufficient to justify optimism
that the new structure will be ready.
Excavation work is now in progress at the south-west
Corner of the parking lot for the new section of the college.
Part of the old normal school will be carted out to complete
the new building, A	
The new College of Education will be an L-shaped building of 12 classrooms. The present excavation is for a building
of eight classrooms, running
east and west.
A building presently situated
at the Normal School, 12th and
Cambie, will be moved to the
campus, and will make up the
other four classrooms. It will
run north and south, the connection with the new building
bousing offices and washrooms.
The construction of the building will be stucco and frame.
Light steel joists will be employed,   making   the  classrooms

New Arts Building
Completed By 1958
By ROSEMARY KENT-BARBER
UBC Arts students can rejoice that the end of overcrowded
classrooms and lecture halls is in sight. University architects,
Thompson, Berwick and Pratt have released tentative artists'
sketches calling for a new two million dollar Arts building to
be erected early in 1958. $ f	
The building will consist of
three rectangular shaped units
near the Women's Gym and facing nOrth towards the sea.
They'll probably be in the form
of a three-sided square with a
paved triangle in the center.
Main unit will be a classroom
block backing along Memorial
road. Seventy feet by two hundred it will consist of 29 classrooms, seminar rooms and a special room for languages.
A two story building, it will
have a small lounge on the roof
and enough space for 1,859 students using the rotation plan
now in effect.
A second block, this one along
the main mall, will hold lecture-room- space for 1,102 students. It will have 8 large lecture rooms, student lounges, a
galley way and lobby space in
the main entrance  hall.
Final block along the east
mall will hold 97 faculty offices and a large committee room.
Four stories "high, it will probably have an elevator in it for
staff use.
Dean Chant and Dean Mawds-
ley may have their offices in
this block also but final space
has yet to be assigned by Dean
Gage and his committee on classroom administration.
"But the Committees of the
Faculty have agreed in principle about the location and
general   nature  of  the   plans,"

Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie, UBC's
President, said Monday.
"The plans are in the hands
of the architects and will be
approved by the Board of Governors as soon as possible," the
President said. "The contract
will be let during the course
of the summer," he said.
Committees have been working all year to complete details of the new building. "Plans
are continually being changed
from day to day, however," Mr.
T. S. Hues, Superintendent of
Buildings and Grounds, said
Monday.
For example, the lecture
theatre block appears on the
sketches as being completely
circular in shape as has been
tried out in some U.S. Colleges.
But details such as lighting and
accoustics didn't work out and
so the scheme was abandoned.
The final lecture theatre
rooms will probably have sloping floors with a large room
holding 250 students and seven
smaller ones holding 100 each.
Classrooms, witth tablet arm
seats and some swivel arm seats,
will have flat floors. Other faculties may use space in the unit
at the discretion of Dean Gage's
committee.
Special lecture room in the
classroom block will have space
for the latest teaching technique

K TREASURY   SHOWS   SURPLUS
Conway Submits Financial Report
The year 1955-36 has been marked by a number of substantial changes in the financial planning of the Alma Mater Society. The rapid growth in the enrolment has enabled the introduction of certain benefits by this year's Council, and will
greatly influence the future planning the Society.
This year's operations have been extremely successful in
that the policies established in September have all been satisfactorily carried out.
Outlined below are the main innovations of this year—the
financial summary is shown separately.
ACCIDENT BENEFIT
ASSISTANCE FUND
This year a new plan was
drawn up and approved that
covers all students for any accident while they are attending
University. Thus, all Alma Mater
Society members have valuable
insurance protection against the
high expenses resulting from
injuries, at no extra cost to
themselves.
The plan has been set up with
the aim in mind that eventually UBC will become fully "socialized" with complete accident, some sickness, and some
dental coverage for every-student.
The cost of this ambitious program, wfcich is beipg underwritten by the Alma Mater Society,
amounted to just over $4,000.00
lor the past year (approximately
65c per student).
BROCK EXTENSION
The financing of the $300,000
Brock Extension was planned—
with students voting at the Fall
General meeting to continue payment of the annual S5.00 levy,
which has been paying for the ! cujt
Memorial Gymnasium, until
1963. The $340,000 collected by
this levy over the next seven
years will pay for the extension and interest cost of the
loan.
Thus one more student-financed construction will be added to
the impresive list which includes
the million dollar Memorial
Gymnasium, the Women's Gymnasium, the present Brock Hall,
the Armouries, the Stadium, and
some of the playing fields.
OFFICE R'E-ORGANIZATION
AND BUSINESS MANAGER
The unfortunate retirement
of the A.M.S. Business Manager,
Mr. H. B, Maunsell, who has
guided the financial policies of
the Society for over seven years,,
has necessitated an office reorganization and the training of
his successor, Mr. E. MacDonald.
Mr. MacDonald is extremely
capable and can adequately
handle the growing financial
responsibilities of the A.M.S.
Office.
The functions of the four permanent staff members arc being
reviewed to determine the best
means of expanding the work
handled by the office.
CAPITAL EXPENDITURE and
DEPRECIATION POLICY
In the past it has been A.M.S.
practice to purchase a great deal
of equipment in years when
funds are available, and virtually none in other years. Depreciation has never been charged
in any attempt to spread this
cost.
In an attempt to even out
these substantial expenses so
that each year the students bear
their fair share of the cost of
the equipment used, a motion is
ibeing presented today recommending the allocation of 50c
per student to the Brock Renovation Fund (see story elsewhere).
This year the cost was spread
by   granting  3-4   year   loans  to
organizations that desired to purchase equipment.
The new Renovation Fund, in
effect, is a depreciation allocation—with all equipment purchases being made with the
funds so allocated.
"NO SURPLUS" BUDGET
POLICY
A "no surplus" budget policy
for the Society was initiated
this year. This means, that in
effect, the full receipts of the
Society for any year will be
spent on student activities of
that year.
In the past, students have paid
their A.M.S fees of $18.00 and
have only received the benefit of $16-$17 through the regular program. The balance has
been accumulating until it amounted to nearly $40,000 as at
June 30th, 1955.
This sum is a sufficiently
large margin to safeguard
against most uninsured calamities that could occur—in particular, a drop in student enrollment which might make repayment of the bank loan cliffi-
Therefore, budgeting for this
year and for the future has been
and should be on a "no surplus"
basis. As planned, the entire
$18.00 has' been expended on
student activities of this year.
NEW RESERVE BUDGET
POLICY
Subsidiary organizations, such
as the Undergraduate Societies
and the clubs, have been restricted in their activities in the
past because they were required to finalize their budget by
September 30th. All funds were
allocated at this date, so that
if an organization developed
a new project at a later time,
they would probably have to
curtail their plans due to a lack
of funds.
To counteract this deficiency,
a special reserve was set aside
until January and was then allocated to those organizations requiring additional funds. Therefore, no organization had its
activities restricted this year by
a lack of funds.
THE FINANCE COMMITTEE
The position of Treasurer of
thc Alma Mater Society is rapidly becoming to large a job for
one man, despite the fact that
the Business Manager and staff
handle much of the regular business work.
With a present budget of a
quarter of a million dollars that
will double by 1063, some division of responsibility was obviously required.
Therefore, a five-person finance committee has been established with the Treasurer as
Chairman, two Students' Council members, and two non-Council members, to serve along with

the  non-voting  Business   Manager. •
THIS COMMITTEE would
have the following functions,
subject to final Council approval:
1. TO DISCUSS and plot overall budget policies.
2. TO HEAR representations
and recommendations on budget
allocations.
3. TO BUDGET for, and approve all capital expenditures.
4. TO INITIATE, investigate,
and prepare recommendations in
regards to various projects contemplated and planned by Students' Council.
5. TO ULTIMATELY become
a committee that will approve
detailed lists of vouchers payable and therefore to spread the
responsibility that the Treasurer
now bears.
6. TO PROVIDE a training
ground for students who are interested in student government
in general and in the financial
aspect in particular.
IT TO FURTHER act as a subsidiary committee of Students'
Council to study the financial
inmplications of various proposals.
8. TO PROVIDE, through revolving membership, some continuity in the financial planning
of the Alma Mater Society.
Along this line, the committee
j this  year  discussed   the  future
allocation   of   student   funds,
j reaching conclusions which are
outlined later.
PUBLICATIONS
The program for publications
included the raising revenue
from advertising sales, lowering
the  price  of the Totem  (from
$4.30 to $3.50). making funds
available so that publication of
the literary and humour magazines would be possible, and to
increase the size of the "Ubyssey."
All of the above projects
were capably carried out
through the efforts of Editor
Stan Beck.
Perhaps the greatest possibilities for change exist in this
field, because eventually the
large student enrollment and
increased advertising should
lead to the free distribution of
all publications.
FUTURE PROSPECTS OF THE
ALMA MATER SOCIETY
The rapidly increasing University enrollment — 15 To increase this year and 100% by
1963—necessitates a changing
fiscal policy.
THe annual A.M.S. fee of
$18.00 has been divided into two
components. There is a fixed portion of $12.00 (Bank loan repayment, World University Ser-1
vice, Brock Renovation Fund* j
Accident Benefit Fund, Undergraduate Societies, and Men's
Athletics) that is spent directly
on a per-capita grant.
The remaining $6.00 per student that is collected is available for new activities and projects. Thus, next year's enrollment increase of 1,000 students
means that the Treasurer will
have nearly S6.000 to allocate
in increased budgets.
With this allocation in mind,
the Finance Committee has recommended that the following
projects, which would benefit
ALL members of the Society, be
undertaken:
1. A free A.M.S. card for
every student (in the past they
have been sold for 50c each).
2. A student directory and
handbook which sells for 10c,
instead of 35c as in the past-
part of the cost would be underwritten by increased advertising sales made possible by the
enlarged circulation.
3. An expanded Accident
Benefit coverage, with possible
addition of some sickness benefits.
4. A lower-priced "Totem."
5. A lower-priced Athletic 'A'
card.

which just failed to score in the

Soon after the break, Barker
kicked a penalty goal from
squarely in front of the posts.
Jack Maxwell scored Varsity's first try of the afternoon
when, heading for the right sideline, he cut Inside, beat the Rep
fullback who was slow in covering, and scored right behind
the posts. The conversion by Barker was good. Maxwell's second
try came soon after, as he raced
[-30 yards down the right side-
j line, scoring in the corner. Mor-
ley's kick at goal from the sideline was  good.

the outcome of the game was
never in any doubt. The only
question was how many goals
Varsity would score.
The "Flying Dutchman," Ernie Kuyt, scored a hat trick
in the first half. Kuyt, who is
fast becoming one of the most
effective centre forwards in the
city, last year played goal for
Varsity.
In the second half, two old
reliables, registered Varsity's
other goals, Fred Green notched
one and Bruce Ashdown got
the others. Ashdown was unlucky in not getting a third
when the referee blew his
whistle at a passing blond and
then claimed a Varsity player
was offside when Ashdown scored.
For goalie Clive Hughes, who
had little to do, this was his
fifth shutout in twelve league
games.
For Varsity there were no
really outstanding players as
everyone played well against
the weak Sapperton team.

By DAVE MANSON
Eight crews churned the 2000 meter course of Coal Harbour on Sunday in three races, and UBC's eights came home
with two wins in three starts
In the feature race of the day,
UBC's Varsity eight smashed out
an eight length victory over
fearsome Washington Huskies.
Third place went to Oregon
State College, a much improved
crew that battled Huskies to the
final sprint for the runner-up
spot.
The smooth-stroking Birds got
off to a swift racing start, grabbing a full length lead after 15
strokes and never looked back
on the U. S. crews. Their stroke
ranged from 34 to 36 strokes per
minute but a tide and headwind
prevented the oarsmen from bettering their relatively slow time
of 6:44.2. The course record is
6:15 set by the BEG crew in
1954.

The Bird crews • went into
those races with a large chip on

out far in front, daring the eastern "big wigs" to knock it off.
The words of strokeman and

times the U. of W. crew challenged for the lead, each time
forging ahead by a few feet, and
the Blue and Gold repeatedly
fought back to their half-length
lead with renewed surges of power and spirit.
WIN IN STRETCH
But the final quarter mile told
the story of the race. With both
crews    lipping     their     strokes,
UBC J. V.'s opened up to a shell
length lead at the wire  rowing
a   powerful   36   strokes   in   the
stretch. The victory maintained
for  the  J.   V.'s  the   undisputed
title  of  Western  Intercollegiate
Sprint  Champions,  having   captured the title for the first time
last   spring    in    Newport    Harbour.
UBC's   only   loss  came   when
the HMCS Discovery crew, 1955
Kelowna Regatta Champs, edged
past   the  second   J.   V.   crew   in
the opening event of the  meet.
Our boys had tough luck at thc
start    and    didn't    have    quite
enough to close that one length
the   sailors   held   at   the   finish
line.
The moot was a great success
from   all   viewpoints   and   even
the   powers-that-be   blessed   the
crews   with   good   weather   and
water,   Tlu>  only   letdown   came
when   coach   Frank   Read   read
