No profit is being made at
student expense in the cafeteria, a special fact-finding committee, headed by Cy McGuire,

Monday night.

to September, 1950, the average

rapidly the committee's report
•fates. This places the food services committee in a very awkward
position with regard to prices,
claims the report.
Student complaints regarding the
cafeteria centred around three main
points. Students were critical of
of the cafeteria practice ot serving
a la carte dinners. They asked thai
entree meals' be served complete
with soup, main course, dessert and
This recommendation' was accented by tha food services department and entree meals became thu
rule at all campus outlets Tuesday.
Prices were alio pushed back and
students pay only 50 cents for a
fuU course meal.
Students also voiced criticism of
people who sit in the cafeteria ind
occupy table space without buying
in Its report to council the committee   made   five   recommendations.
1. Re-arrangement or coffee distribution to enable people purchas-
lit coffee only to by-pass the long
lineups, enabling raster handling of
dinner purchasers.
3. The addition of one person,
preferably a student, to look after
the cash register only between thc
hours of 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

service and avoid general confusion.

Manager Ole Bakken announced Wednesday.
As the rough figure was released rumour reached the campus
that Whitworth would be withdrawing from Evergreen Conference football next year.
Bakken told the Ubyssey he had
reports from the small American
school that the president thought
it unlikely a team could be fielded
next year.
He gave "increasing. inroads of
the military and industry'' as the
cause, claiming they would reduce the school's enrollment to
the point where a football team
would be impossible to support.
No confirmation has yet been
received   from   Whitworth.

Graduating Class
Executive Posts
Engineers completely fill the
executive positions in the graduating class of ibol, as a result
of the elections held Tuesday
afternoon at the annual class
meeting in the auditorium.
Four man executive eleeted by
400 graduating students is: president Terry Lynch, secretary James
Ross, treasurer Neut Cornish, and
social convener George Shaw.
All four were elected by substantial majorities, said meeting chairman Jim Midwinter.
"At least half the 400 voters were
engineers," said Midwinter, "with
lawyers next in force. Hut there
couldn't have been more than 60
artsmen at the meeting."
Midwinter termed the new exec-
tlve "red hot" and said that they
should make the 1951 graduation a
thing to remember.
Remaining number of the executive will be appointed by the forr
elected members. The others to
como are such .members as the
class valedictorian, class prophet,
class poet and other similar post4.
Honorary president and vice-
president of the graduating class
will be chosen at a later date by thc
The annual will be a "strictly engineers" volume to record the activities of all groups under EUS,
according to engineer's president
Don Dugulld who was called in to
the regular counci meeting along
with Totem editor Hugh Cameron.
Cameron opposed the publication
on the grounds that lt would cut
into Totem sales and would take
away Tot'em advertising solicited
from downtown engineering firms.
Council finally passed the motion which had been brought up
Monday after being tabled the previous week hut four amendments
were necessary before it was passed.
Treasurer John MacKinnon, looking at the possible financial difficulty which would arise If'engineers bought their own publcatlon
instead of the Totem, mewed thc
four amendments.
MacKinnon's additions to the motion backed up Totem Editor Cameron's fears. MacKinnon asked that
advertising for the engineer's book
not be solicited until after the
Totem advertising deadline January
1, 1951, without Cameron's permission.
Treasurer asked that any profits
or losses from the new book should
be added to or subtracted from the
budget of MUS for 1950-61.
MacKinnon wanted as well, a
liaison between the editors of the
Totem and the engineer's version
to limit the duplication of material.
His fourth amendment asked for
the formation of a committee consisting of the EUS and AMS treasurers and the Totem editor to draw
up a figure for the number of
Totem sales that the EUS will
guarantee to meet, ensuring tho
Totem will not suffer from the new
Engineer president Duguid was
reluctant to have this amendment
put in because lt would positively
bind the engineers.
He said there were too many variables  to  arrive   at  a  fair   figure
the EUS must guarantee.

Critic On The Hearth
A United Stand
Campus political, religious and miscellaneous clubs will gather together at noon
Friday to put aside their little rivalries and
take a united stand on a matter of importance to all of them.
The subject under discussion will be Can-
ada'e long-neglected Indian rights, and specifically the brief of suggested changes in the
Indian Act which has been submitted to tho
Minister of Citizenship and Immigration in
Ottawa by the Vancouver Branch of the Canadian Civil Liberties Union.
It is a well-planned brief, compiled by Hun-
tfuLewis of UBC's English Department, who
h«s studied the Indians' problems for yea***
and produced a workable outline for the
gradual Improvement of their conditions.
Main organizers of -the mass meeting
have been the campus Civil Liberties Union,
United Nations Club, Student Christian Move
ment, and Student Peace Movement. The aims
of these clubs may riin parallel, but it is a
rare occasion when they meet; their unity
on this point is an indication of the importance of the issue.
Not only all clubs, but also all individual
students should lend their support to the
meeting. Only widespread and loud public
protest can influence the government to take
action finally on this buring question.
Citizens of a democratic country should
always be alert to protest unjust treatment ol
minority groups. And in the present situation
of the Indians, we have injustice—whether it
results from malice or negligence is immaterial.
Friday's meeting affords an opportunity
for students to unite and take effective action. We hope that no irrelevant factional differences will prevent their 'doing so. -

30 Pieces Of Silver
The engineers' announcement \hat they
will product a separate yearbook of their own
'■ is nothing less than a body blow to'studfiMt
For the sake of being able to send some
50 copies of the proposed annual out to a
few firms that may be induced to hire a few
Slide-rule wielders at some later date, the
Engineers' Undergraduate Society is apparen-
tly quite willing to risk ruining the financial
success of the 1951 Totem, which involves
$17,900 of student funds.
For the sake of 30 doubtful pieces J
silver, the EUS has sold the Totem into what
may prove to be financial slavery.
What are the facts? The Engineers propose to put out a yearbook of their own, at a
cost of $1,500. With that much of their yearly
budget involved, you can be sure they will
keep their promotional machine, in high gear
until all 750 copies are sold.
It is true that a clause in the EUS yearbook agreement with Student Council guarantees the sale of a certain number of Totems
among EUS members. But that certain number is yet to be decided by a committee to be
made up of a Totem representative and lhe
treasurer of AMS and EUS.
The student body thus has no real guarantee at all. What is prevent the engineers from
holding out for a ridiculously low .maximum
Totem sale in order to sell their own book?
Apparently nothing.
It is unrealistic for engineers to argue
that their counterparts at other universities produce engineering yearbook, when other
universities do not plunge $17*500 worth of
student funds into a consistently first-rate
annual for their entire student bodies.
If the EUS has the UBC spirit they pretend to possess, how is the time for them to
show it by shelving ell plans for a faculty
Now that UBC's thinkers have beer
shocked into a ponderous mood by the
invincible might of the athletic battalions, the
intellectual carpet-baggers find themselves
busy trying to attract some surplus ponder-
ing-power their way. First Mr. Gerald Newman, who pricked up his ears when the word
"scholarship" was mentioned and then hopefully identified cultural pedantry with bread
and circuses. Now there's me — long since
become impervious to the seduction of the
word "scholarship" and content to lump
"murderous enterprises" together with cultural pedantry under thc convenient heading
"anthropological phenomena" — who opens
up his carpet bag, reaches inside and brings
out "political objectivity" for UBC ponderers
to ponder. ,t
Much has been daubed onto the Ubys-
scy's allocation of newsprint about communism and communists. Someone says we
should tolerate communists and immediately
someone else says "That's mighty big of
you." And so the scale of objectivity flops
up and down, see-saw-like, without seemingly being capable of holding itself still in the
• middle so that we can get a good look at it.
The trouble, it seems to me, with the see-3aw
riders is that they are trying to be ethical,
democratic and objective all at the same time,
mistakenly thinking that these three cate-
gories form some sort of Holy Trinity. The
fact is they don't — as is reflected in the
eternal conundrum "Must we tolerate those
who wish to destroy the instrument of toleration?" Thus it is that political arguments are
no more intelligible when they are bouncing
up and clown than when they are swinging
right and left.
Having turned to relativity after abandoning
formal logic, I lind that Joe Stalin has greatly
simplified the argument by making the criterion of Communism a constant in the equation by laying a heavy hand on it and keeping it still while we judge other relative considerations. Stalin, and Stalin alone, defines
Communism and so defines who is and wh<">
is not a Communist—as any ambitious paity
member knows. A basic presupposition of
Stalinism is that a person is either for or
against Communism and, ergo, a critic is an
pnemy. There is no half-way house, as the
"British Labourite lackeys" have known for a
long time and as every fellow-traveller eventually finds out. Therefore, if We are wot
Communist Party members in good standing,
,we are ipso facto anti communists and enemies of the working class—whether we think
so or not!
So the broadmihded critics of communism can climb off the see-saw, shake hands
and face the fact that they are both tolerating
Communists; not because it might help them
when the workers unite, not because democracy as an instrument of government demand the freedom of its enemiefe( it doesn't,
although it does demand the freedom of minorities, which is a different thing again),
not out of a desire to be objective, but because of the demands of ethics alone—maybe-
only Christian ethics at that! Toleration of
Communists might help them in the Kingdom
of God; it won't help them very much in the
Kingdom of Man. We can all decide for ourselves in which Kingdom our greater interest
lies and in which one we find it more congenial to sit and think about democracy. There
i.s a vast ethical difference between throwing
a dead cat at a personality whose political
significance is no greater than the geographical significance of Tim-Buck-Too and
arguing over the most subtle way of tolerating him. But this difference has little to do
with the conception of democracy as an instrument of government and nothing to do
with absolute objectivity.
We cannot be objective in considering a
political group which threatens our very right
to be objective—and the sooner we realize
ihat vve are in fact tolerating that group, the
clearer will be our picture of democracy. In
Canada, we can afford to mix our politic*"!
whiskey with some ethical champagne, but
let's qui! trying to hide our extravagance by
calling Ihe champagne ginger-ale!
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Pear Sir:
The disgraceful odltorlal which
appeared in Tuesday's Ubyssey entitled "On Dangerous Peculiarity"
cannot be allowed to pass unchallenged. One would conclude from
the editorial that the honorable
Brooke Claxton regarded universities as subordinate appendages
to the defence department. The
honorable minister, in fact, took
particular, pflns to stress that the
chief purpose of a university was
to contribute to our democracy
1>j! producing (Individuals of a
pmgresslre, honest and dynamic
character. Of necessity lt Is necessary that everyone contribute
to the defence program, and lu
this respect the universities arc
In a peculiarly favorable position
and are expected to.contribute accordingly. The minister, however,
did not suggest Uiat In doing so
tire unlvwrsites -were expected to
neglect their primary role.

Ubyssey and for them to Impute

seek to do Ah an 'Insult to the Canadian people who have placed the

he occupies.
It may not be amiss to note
that certain of the staff of the Ubyssey arrived In the Auditorium
when the address of the minister
was nearly concluded and this may
account for their apparent complete lack of knowledge of the
content of the minister's address.
I would suggest that when lhe editors assume to criticize the remarks of a prominent person ln
the future that they first make
themselves familiar with the remarks.

Dear  Sir:
After your ill-timed editorial |»
bleat of Thursday, Nov. 16, concerning the poor maligned Home
Economics department, we suggest you colled a few more facts.
On Tuesday, Nov. 14, the milk allowance In Acadia and Fort Camp
was cut to two glasses per person
per day. At noon on Friday, Nov.
17 the Home Economics department started selling milk at nine
cents a half pint. As the retail
price for milk is now 10 cent's a
pint, and as the University, (pardon the expression) residences
are claimed to be non-profit organizations il would seem that the
Home Economics department deserves a ilttle Investigation.

No thefts on the campus have
been reported since two 12-volt
radios were stolen from cars on

University Detachment, RCMP
said Wednesday.
The looting put police on. the
alert for the possible recurrance
of a wave of thievery that swept
the campus last year.
Crackdown on offenders using
the east mall as a two-way thoroughfare has taken the form of
verbal admonitions by police, and
promise of "no second chance."
RCMP said on the whole stu
dent parking has been very good
but students should be more careful to lock their vehicles securely

Peeping Tom Raids
inmates of the women's residences
at Queen's have had trouble with
peeping Toms and other forms of
nocturnal visitations, the Queen's
Journal stated recently.
At Ban Righ house, co-eds said
they have no peeping Tom trouble since their windows are too
high. "Otherwise conditions are
perfect," said one. Publicity given
the uninvited observers in the
Journal seems to have discouraged
their activities recently.
However, serenaders are very
popular with the girls of all residences. During a recent week-end
girls were awakened at 2 a.m. by
four choristers who finally left
following police persuasion. Their

Swedish Students
Ask For Delegate
Swedish National Union of Students has extended an Invitation
to the University ot" British Columbia to attend the International
Student Conference to be held In
Stockholm, Dec. 17 to 21.
Invitations have been issued to
universities across Canada and the
rest of the western world to send
delegates. Purpose of the conference Is to discuss university life
und methods which are peculiar
to each particular campus.
Student council has recommended that Urban Nelson, a student
at UBC represent this university
if he is going to be in Stockholm at
the time. He may be returning to

UBC Built In Middle
Ages Says Gilson
Despite historical belief that UBC began with the memo:-
ab!e trek of the fairview shacks, this university was built in thc
Middle Ages. ■'
This was stated last week by Professor Etlenne Gilson, foremost
authority on medieval philosophy,
who proved that our entire modern
culture was built on the foundations of that age.
"The concrete foundation ot your
university was poured by twentieth century contractors," he said
"but If no universities had been
created in Paris and Babylon in
Medieval times there would be nono
in Vancouver today."
Attempting to stress the effect
which the medieval day has had
upon our present world, Gilson ret-
fered to the creation of Christianity,
architecture and even examinations.
"Exams were a medieval disease which have become a modern
epidemic," he  said.
"And when Pope Gregory of
Rome had his first glimpse of
white-haired Anglo-Saxon boys lu
536 A.D., our Christian era began.
Ills missionaries which were sent
to 'the savage and unbelieving
Great Britain' in that time, created
the philosophy which has been the
core of our culture."
We don't have to read books to
see the Middle Ages, whicli arc
actually living around us in thc
form ol' t'liiss, tapestry, organ music
and almost every aspect of thin
"These men laid the foundations
and the principles and have taught
us that each man is free, not to be
used as u means to an end. Man Is
an end in himself," he said.
"But the most fanatical advocate
of medieval beliefs could nol stand
more than two Aveeks ba6k In that
day. The best historical age for any
man, is that in which he .Is living."
