Recent fee increases ht Canadian universities, including
,UBC, were attacted by Tim
Buck, LLP national leader, as
being directly connected with
the economic policy of the federal government.
In an address to the annual conference of LLP University studenta, Mr. Huck charged that such
a policy alms to limit Canadian Industry and turn this country into a
Miurce of raw material for the USA
and a market for Us goods.
"In a raw material economy,
there is little room or need for
trained workers and for professional men and women," Mr. Buck explained. "In such an economy there
Is no future for our youth. The
Canadian government cannot provide the youth with opportunities
■for carreers and jobs." !
Mr. Buck maintained that a deliberate fee Increase was made to
limit university enrollment.
The annual conference of LLP
■students, held In Toronto, criticized the Canadian government for
failing to provide careers and opportunities for "an Increasing section of Canadian youth."
The conference Issued a three-
point program: 1) a call for "vigorous and consistent peace" program among Canadian University
students, 2) a campaign to lower
fees, and 3* a buildup of student
LLP clubs.
Jim MacDonald was named president of Frosh Undergraduate Society as a result of Friday's election, winning
out by a narrow margin over Mike Peers.
In Jim's senior year at Magee, he was president of
Students Council and Boys Hi-Y and was also very active
in rugger and skiing.

Don McCallum is the new secretary-treasurer.
Joyce and Don also attended Magee and were both
very active in student affairs.

Tuition  Raises
MONTREAL — CUP) — Canadian student officers, terming the
latest round of tuition Increases at
the nation's Universities "especially deplorable',, have laid plans
for a "national campaign to seek
reduction in fees."
Pointing out that the cost of obtaining a higher education has
risen again in the past year, delegates to the mid-Septembor NFCUS
Conference reaffirmed the Federation's view that "no Canadian
should be prevented by financial
need from completing his education."
Means to be used lu tho "national campaign," mandated to the
University of llrltisli Columbia

The Crossroads Ahead
Dr. MacKenzie's promise to recommend
a fee cut at the next meeting of the Board
of Governors offers some hope to hard pressed atudtnts.
We must remember, however, that the
president told Student Council he would be
"most surprised if the decrease equalled the
|S0 increase imposed this year" and that he
told them he still fears that the universtiy
may face a tight squeeze before the year
. il over.
Dr. MacKenzie understands the position
in which students find themselves amid the
spiraling cost-of-living.
And he has repeated time and time again
his conviction that no student of ability
should be denied access to higher education.
lie is, nonetheless, a realist. He has every
intention of putting his ideals into practice
but hi possesses a crystal clear understanding
of the obstacles in the way.
His major point in the hour-long discussion with councillors was that the university
is constantly being called upon to provide
new services and that, if students want these
services, either they, the provincial government, the federal government, or private donors must pay for them.
It is unlikely that federal grants will exceed $600,000 a year for some time to come.
The possibility of an increased provincial
government grant remains slim and the
aptount of money which can be expected from
private donors is small.
Meanwhile, costs are likely to continue
to increase. Professors salaries are still too
low and one can not blame them if they ask
for another raise before long. Building costs,
maintainance costs and supply prices are likely to rise when Canadas defence program gets
under way.
The student, therefore, is likely to face
a choice between higher fees or fewer services.
Higher fees will wreak a terrible hardship on students. We must, therefore, examine our services and ask which of them, if
any, might be cut without undue damage to
the university as a whole.
We think such cuts can be effected.
Many of us have been alarmed for some
time at the tendency toward the absorption
by the university of fields of study which
might, more profitably, be the work of trade
An excellent case in point is the School
of Home Economics.
The courses which are strictly "home
economics" could easily be given in the Vancouver Technical Vocational Institute or any
similar trade school.
The courses which fall within the fields
of the arts and the sciences could be given
by the regular university departments after
the students have learned the trade school
aspects elsewhere.
We have never been able to see why the
home economics course could not be given
in the same way as the nursing.
Home economics students could well
spend two or three years in "professional
apprenticeship" somewhere, then take an
additional two or more years of strictly university material—given by the existing departments in the Faculty of Arts and Science
— upon the completion of such work.
The staff and equipment required for the
School of Home Economics could thus be dispensed with (save, perhaps, for one or two
administrative officials and the fine new
building devoted to this study revamped for
use by some more strictly university course.
The saving would be considerable and
little would be lost.
Culture On An Empty Stomach
AND ALL THAT      by Les Armour
On the wall of the city room
of one of Vancouver's evening
newspapers is a large sign
which proclaims In bold-face
MUST — Better not print a
story at all than print lt Incorrectly."
This particular newspaper
takes its sign seriously.
lt demands a high standard
from Its reporters and woe betide the unforunate who so
much as misplaces the middle
initial of a traffic victim.
Through the years lt hae
built up a reputation for correctness and fair play In Its
coverage of local events.
Local stories. are almost invariably based on carefully
sought and sifted fact and even
political matter is seldom slanted.
lt was, therefore, somewhat
of a shock to pick up laat Saturday's edition and read, blazoned across page one, the "to-
side Btory of Stalin's timetable tor world conquest."
The story, written by a so
called "Soviet agent" from East
Germany, was conveyed through International News Service—a branch of the organization built by the late William Randolph Hearst.
Mr. Hearst was never noted
for his accuracy, his sense of
ftvlr play, his comprehension
of international affairs, or his
Interest ln anything other than
selling newspapers and International News Service has
built for Itself the same reputation.
The story contains nothing
whatever which could conceivably be called documented fact.
It's author, apparently, was
a member of the executive of
the East German Communist
His duty, he says, we* to
further the expansionist aims
of world Communism.
His name, however, Is relatively unknown and he admits
his sphere of operation* was
relatively small.
Yet he claims that the top
brass of the party—both in
and out of the Soviet Union—
confided to him their most
carefully guarded plans for thf
armed invasion of several parts
of Europe.
He listed no fact in support
of the claim and neither the
newspaper concerned nor INS
has  troubled  to  explain  this
rather awkward situation.
Those of us who have no access to "Inner secrets" are inclined to believe that master
strategists of Communism are
unlikely to be so free with
their secrets.
We further suspect that
"maeter plans for armed agression" are unlikely to be precisely formulated so far in advance at a time when Communism is achieving its major
objectives very neatly through
political means.
Yet the author of this remarkable series exhorts the peoples
of the west to arm faster and
adopt   a   "get   tough"   policy
which, ln his terms, would
have involved such politically
ridiculous moves as the atom-
bombing of Red China.
No one knows how much
harm this series will do.
No one knows how mo-ny Canadians will feel that this man,
apparently backed up by an old
and respected newspaper, is in
possession of the "true facts
behind the scene" and thus will
feel constrained to o>id in the
race for mass suicide.
One thing is sure, however,
the newspaper in question
will not find its reputation enhanced among the sections of
the population who prefer fact
to fantasy.
Text Book Committee
Charges Profiteering
Montreal — (CUP) — In the West, text book prices are
The Federal Government sales tax on books makes the
situation "acute."
In some Instances, text retailers 3-
are  guilty of  "flagrant profiteering."
But there's a "ray of hope" In
the Massey Commission recommendation that the Government
discontinue Us tax oa literature.
These were comments by a Un-.
Ivesrity of Toronto committee
which last year studied the text
book problem annually faced by
Canadian students. The committee's report, with six specific recommendations, was presented to
the NFCUS conference at London,
A survey on retail prices of a
group of representative textbooks
at Universities in Canada and 12
ln the U.S. showed that there were
no consistent Canadian list prices
last session, the committee reported. A mark up ln Canada of be.,
tween 10 to 20 per cent over the
V.S. list  price was general.
From 8:30 to 12:30 each day a soft silence
hangs over UBC's campus, punctuated only
by the drone of professor's lecturing, by the
shuffle of students scurrying between classes,
or by the buzz over "cook-books" in the labs.
Twelve-twenty! A transition begins that
has no parallel in any other university on the
continent. Sixty-seven clubs swing into action. Twenty-nine athletic clubs begin activity, concerts are given, newspapers written,
posters painted. Forty-two other organizations play intramural sports.
All this goes on while the student autono-
mically munches his lunch, or forgets about
it completely to allay his hunger at another,
mere convenient time.       *
But all this activity is denied to ono
group of our students, the group that could
benefit more from it than any other, the students living in residence.
They have been alloted but one time to
eat their lunch ,and so have a difficult choice,
to participate in one of the most valuable
parts of the life of any student and go hungry,
or to eat and miss it all.
The administration is ostensibly very interested the physicial well-being of the stu
dent, and provides him with a well-organized
intramural program. But the student in resi-
ence must go hungry in order to participate.
Thc administration has criticized degrees
obtained entirely from study in the summer
session on the grounds that it does not provide students with sufficient knowledge gained from extra-curricular "cultural" activity.
Yet it denies a large part of those same contacts to the students in residence.
From 12:30 to 1:30 is the only time when
student-organized activity is carried on to
any large extent. This is the time when the
out of town students, more so than any other,
should get a chance to be free to participate
in the clubs of their choice.
It is true that these students can obtain
packed lunches. Our reports are, however,
that these lunches are so unattractive that
very few desire to take advantage of them.
If the administration finds its uneconomical to keep the Fort Camp and Acadia
kitchens open at times other than from 12:45
to 1:30 then at least their meal tickets should
be good at the cafeteria for the 50c "special."
UBC's students tradition is being kept
alive only by the noon-hour activity. Let's
let the resident students in on it, too.
iettetA tc the €4itw
Editor, The Ubyssey,
As a rebuttal to sta>loments In
the past two Issues of the Ubys-
sey, I would like to make clear,
on bebalr of the Engineering Faculty, that the news printed regarding Frosh Orientation in not
etlrely based on fact.
fn the first place, Engineers'
did not defy any agreement with
council to protect Frosh. There
was never any such agreement, lt
ls unthinkable that the Engineers,
who are advocates of more University spirit and Inter-faculty rivalry, would agree to abolish one or
their  oldest  traditions.
Even a council oP'lcer, speaking
over the Englners' l%\. system in-
stnict.ocl iho Engineer.* to disregard tlio so-called protection agreement.
Incidentally .stories ol" more Engineers than Frosh receiving the
lily pond swimming lessons, confirm our suspicion that the Ubyssey
"on the spot reporter" was cringing in a tree on tho corner ol'
Agronomy road i'.ud the main mull
during the  Fracas.
Regarding the absence of Engineers to answer the Freshmen on
Thursday, we were actually displaying admirable restraint in
foregoing the pleasure of dunking'
the  entire  group.
Unlike the non-existent protection   agreement,   we   luul,   however.
promised AMS to refrain from any
activities    which    might    Interfere
J with club registration.
i     However,   if  Frosh   are   still   an-
! xious to pit their skills and brawn
| ■■.■gainst   tiie   Engineers,   we   would
j certainly  welcome a  challenge.
I     A   small   point,  probably  printed
I by accident,  which  I  would like to
correct,  is  the  statement  that  Engineers    would    use    vampires    to
extract   Artsmen's    blood    in    the
coming   drive.
This  report  is of course  false,  as
everybody*  knows—even  a  tnosqul*
to would soon die of starvation.
i Yours very truly,
lionnld   O.   Foxall,   ECS
Editor, The  Ubyssey:
The Ubyssey has always heen
notorious for its unprovoked anti-
Engineer articles, as well as a
policy of "dont give credit where
credit is due" as far as the EUS
is concerned. Tills was very well
proven ln Friday's issue of your
'Hb-per (?) On page three, you show
a picture "af cold and wet engineers, and triumphant freshmen."
Just who do ou think you're fooling anyway?
I always thought the object of
any paper was to print the truth,
but anyone can readily see that the
I'byssey is different. Take for Instance, the report of Red Sweater
Day. Such statements as "two engineers were dunked for every
trtwlimait" Is sheer nonsnee. 1
participated lu Red Sweater Day,
amd we feel that wo soundly
thrashed tho freshmen. As for
Thursday, if the EUS had wanted
to, we could'vi; pushed every freshman on the campus Into the Pacific.
If you must denounce the Engineers, how about doing lt "fair
and square"—or haven't you hoard
or that old-fash'ioned method?

The committee recommended:
1. That the Government clarity
its "inconsistent" policy on duty
'free admittance of educational
books, or even better, admit all
educational books, Including dictionaries, duty free. Now duty Is
charged on some, not on others.
2. That the Government, to encourage both, reading and writing,
remove Its sales tax on books.
3. That local NFCUS committees,
by checking with Toronto's list of
prices, keep tabs on local retailers
to point out cases of profiteering.
4. Thut Universities make fuller
use of texts that are presently free
from duty and sales tax.
5. That publishers be asked to
discontinue the mark up practice
on texts "to the fullest practical
6. That publishers attempt to
stop retailers from adding a further mark up.

A Fairy Tale For Freshettes
Once upon a time tliere was an
apple-green little Freshette named  Ermintrude.
Now Ermintrude came to Varsity In the fall of Til, brlghteyed
and eager. She was ready to study
hard and play hard, and accept if
they asked lier to run for Frosh
Queen. The future looked very
rosy for our heroine.
On Club Day, Ermintrude strolled 'round and 'round the town
looking at all the posters and publicity on display, trying to decide
which of the clubs interested her.
"1 must not join many clubs,"
said she to herself, "because 1
have to study hard this year and
get a first-cln*ss average."
She stopped ln front of a large
poster which said—"Join the Loadsafun Club, make friends, enjoy
yourself and spend your leisure
time profitably." Above the poster
two bespectacled eyes twinkled at
her in a friendly manner.
"This is the club for me," thought Ermintrude, and she promptly signed up for Loadsafun. "Now,
I think that will be quite enough-
after all, I don't have too much
time on my hands."
So the little Freshette became a
member of Txmdsafun, the friendly
club. She went down to the clubhouse just about every day carrying ber lunch ln a little paper bag.
Soon she found herself one ot the
gang. Ermintrude was "in."
Then, one late Autumn day, a
big, important executive member came up to little Ermle and
a#ked her If she would like to
help arrange a tea to be held ln
two week* time.
"Heavens, no," she said, "why,
I'm busy studying—1 just couldn't
and anyhow "
The big, Important executive
member sighed and shuffled off.
But Ermintrude came to the tea,
ate ctt'ke and cookies and drank
three cups of coffee (imagine, coffee at a "tea".) And she really
enjoyed herself.
Then, a big dance was schedul
ed to be sponsored by Loadsafun
und when someone suggested that
Ermintrude help with the decorations she turned rather pale, and
mumbled something about a horrible headache.
(But the night of the dance found
our little heroine wearing pink net
and a big, beaming smile. She
danced all evening and couldn't
quite understand why some of the
members looked a little tired.
Ermintrude began to spend more
and more time in the clubhouse,
just sitting and talking, and less
and less time in the library, studying. But she meant to study sooner or later. ,
The big, Important executive
members were becoming nuisances.
They were always trying to enlist
help for something or other, always trying to shove people who
were busy into playing basketball,
or picking up scraps from the
clubhouse floor.
"Why    can't    they    leave
alone?" thought Ermintrude.
And then there was always student elections. There'd be flustered candidates complete with silly
grins and panicky press-agents,
always hollering about something
or other.
"As if anyone cares," thought
And so the year dragged on.
After a while the big Important
eecutlve members didn't ask Ermle to sweep or decorate or paint
anymore. And none of the boys
from Loadsafun ever asked her out
tor a date. What's more, she had
not the faintest notion of what
was happening around the cam
pus. Her friends seemed to have
very little time to spend with Ei>
mintrude—they were always busy
with meetings and activities.
■But Ermle noticed that the very
busy people were also very popular people, who were on the "inside'* of everything and knew
everyone Important—like presidents and editors and football
Then came the exams. Ermintrude found to her great surprise
that she really hadn't learned very
milch. She looked at her first exam
paper and shook her head sadly.
"This isn't a fair exam," she
said. "I don't remember seeing
this stuff before."
Ermintrude wondered after-
wards how her busy, Important
friends did so well in their exams.
When last we saw Ermintrude
she was boarding the train for
home, muttering something about
not coming back to "this horrible,
unfriendly place."
MORAL: Now, all you good little Freshettes, take a lesson from
the misfortunes of Ermintrude.

Invitation Refused
To Soviet Students
NFCUS Divided  But Rejects
Proposal To  Initiate  Exchange
Montreal — (CUP) — Proposal to have Canada initiate
an exch&nge of students with Russia by inviting a group of
Soviet students to visit this country has been turned down by
Canada's national students' union.
The proposal, one of four recent major developments in
international student affairs, sparked a flurry of debate among
delegates to the annual National Federation of Canadian University Students (NFCUS) conference in mid-September.
Other three main decisions taken£-
by tbe federation were:
1. To send representation to a
meeting to be jointly sponsored by
the Communist-dominated International Union of Students (IUS) and
the student unions, of the West
which are not affiliated with the
IUS. This meeting would attempt
to iron out the outstanding differences between the IUS and the
Western group.
2. In the event that these differences are not settled satisfactorily,
to seek establishment of a second
international students' union at a
meeting of the Western group that
is scheduled to be held Immediately after the meeting with the
3. Not to ratify an invitation extended by Denis Lazure, University
of Montreal student who represented the 'federation In Europe during
the summer, to Joseph Grohrnan,
president of the IUS, to visit Can-
Chief reason given by delegates
opposed to inviting the Soviet students and Mr. tlrohman was the
"poor publicity" that would he involved.   Some   delegates   rleclared
and an IUS Executive Counoil
meeting in Warsaw, Sept. 1 to
Sept. 6, as chairman of the federation's International Activities Commission.
Mr. Lazure said information given him at Warsaw led him to believe a reciprocal exchange ot students by Russia and Canada could
be worked out.
The proposed meeting with the
IUS, supported by both the British
and the U.S. unions, does not represent a change of heart by the
Western unions, who have repeatedly opposed the IUS "Kremlin-
line policy," but what Is thought to
be a change of heart by the IUS.
Mr. Lazure reported to the conference that he and other Western
representatives at the IUS Council
meeting in Warsaw noted, firstly,
"some indications of a desire by
the IUS to compromise" with the
Western unions opposed t the IUS,
and, secondly, split feeling within th IUS executive itself.
No date or place haa been announced for this meeting, but it ls
expected to he held just prior to a
meeting of the non-affiliated West-

would like to create more interest
in campus affairs among the women students. She feels that "by
stimulating such interest among
women, greater activity will result and a more unified feeling
among the women themselves will
come out of lt, creating more university spirit."
Eyents planned for 51-'52 by
WUS are Hi-Jinx In October which
Mary says ls a hen-party de luxe,
a fashion show, probably in November, a co-ed in January, a Women's Talent Show and a WUS
WAA Banquet in the spring. The
talent show last year was a great
success and WUS Is hoping to
make the coming show even better. "We'll need lots of support
tor  this,"  says  Mary.
The Immediate object of WUS
this year Is "to consider and advance the Interests of women students through the promotion of
extra-curricular activities.
Mary feels that women should
become even more Interested in
the issues of Importance raised
from time to time on the campus.
She cited, for example, the Constitutional Revision. Pee reduction, ISS and NFCUS business
now current.
For Peace
MONTREAL— (CUP) — Students'
of Canada "join with the students
across the world in a sincere desire for peace," .but deplore "all
forms of peace officers based on
propaganda to further political
aims," the NFCUS declared at Its
London, Ont., conference.
Text of a statement on peace
passed  unanimously follows:
"The Students of Canada realize that the path of future progress on the International scene
Is only possible within the framework  of  International   peace.
"We therefore join with the students across the world In a sincere desire for peace. We deplore,
however, all forms of peace offers
based on propoganda to further
political aims. '
Tells All
This has been an exciting week
lor us, for we bave been introduced to the fascinating new
world of University.
To begin with at Tuesday noon
in Arts 100 we were given interesting and helpful information on
women's activities on the campus
at a meeting conducted by WUS-
WAA were co-chairmen. Dean Mac-
Arthur, presidents of WUS and
WAA were co-chairman. Dean Mawdsley, as guest of honor gave a
short address welcoming new students to the University.
Candidates for the various offices on the Freshman Undergraduate Society were introduced, and
the Freshettes were urged to got
out and vote in   coming elections.
At 3:30 Tuesday afternoon
Brock Hall was the scene of a
tea- sponsored by WUS. Here we
had the opportunity of mingling
with fellow-Freshettes and meeting Dean Mawdsley.
Wednesday was pretty much the
man's day at UBC but the odd
Freshette got Involved in the baaing, too. We came across <»• t9w
poor little girls, weakly singiug
"Godlva" for the Engineers.
On Thursday evening, we assembled in the Cafeteria for a
really good supper. Then all ttou-
ped over to the Brock for an evening of fun Mid games. All thc
Freshpttes looked so cute dressed
as "little sisters" with sunbonnets,
lollipops, etc.
Winner for the best dressed little sister was Susan West, And
the bad little Freshettes who were
penalized were Katherlne Baxter,
Janle Wright, Susan Laurie, Pi'.la
Meadows, Joyce Hart, (who received a face full of pie) and Stev-
ie Kent.
Perhaps tho most popular event
of the evening was the skit, written, directed and acted by Women's Athletic Directorate. It portrayed very accurately and amusingly just how a Freshette feels
during Frosh week.
. Now that the first week Is over,
we take our places as full-fledged
students. And 1 think we're going
to enjoy College life.

choose the candidate from the 400
freshettes who milled past.
"I waa never so surprised in my
life as the day they asked me to
enter the contest," she told The
"And, then, when they told me
I'd won, I thought for sure they
had the names mixed up.
"I didn't think I was cut out to
be a beauty queen."
At Banquet
A black-robed Women's Undergraduate Society executive
punished law-breaking Freshettes at the reception following
the annual Big-Little Sister
Banquet last Thursday afternoon.
Worst offender was Joyce Hart,
now vice-president of the Frosh
Undergraduate Society, who became the recelplent of a pumpkin pie.
Other frosh were forced to smoke
cigars, have free hair shampoos,
and were subjected to many indignities .
Sue West won a toy doll for

Phys. Ed and VOC get ahead
of you. Enter now, and we do
mean now. The tennis doubles

but there's still time to enter
the volleyball league.
Other sports, such as grass
hockey, ping pong, badminton,
basketball, soccer, archery, an
indoor track meet, and a ski

the year.
There's even been talk about

The smaller faculties and

its larger registration is split
up Into the separate years and

UBC quarterback Cal Murphy unleashed a series of running plays
with George Pull doing most of the
ball carrying, and started his determined race against the clock.
When the Saints finally took control of the ball on their five yard
line, they were forced to kick.  .
The punt was blocked by hard
driving, linemen Hugh McArthur
and John MacDonald, with the, latter being Injured on the play. The
injury was later diagnosed to be a
cracked rib and mild concussion.
A quarterback sneak, and a convert by Leo Lund brought the score
to 13-7.
With about fire minutes playing time left In the game, the 'Birds
once more took possesion of the
ball thanks to the brilliant playing
on Dave MacFarlane and the rest
of the UBC line.
Once more Pull's broken field
running and Murphy's ariel offensive picked up the needed first
downs that finally put the 'Birds
In a position to score. The game
was tied with two minutes remaining to be played, and Lund's attempted conversion went wide seconds later, ,
Before the horn finally blew, the
spectators saw coach John Gagl
ardl of the visitors stalk angrily
onto the field to voice his opinion
on a disputed first down awarded
UBC, a mere two yards from the
Saint's  goal  line.
When the horn did blow, the
'Birds ran through the final play
of the game, that was stopped by
an infuriated Carroll College team
on their own six inch line, a situa*
tion that resulted in blows being
exchanged by tbe opposing line*
