NO. 23
LSE Head
Accused
By Clubs
No LSE Meeting
Re Ostrom Plan
Ed Pederson, president of
LSE, and lone dissenting vote
against the Ostrom Plan, may
be confronted by a vote ol
non-confidence when he faces
cahipus  clubs  sometime  next
week.
According to observers, he is
facing action from the United Nations Club, whose president, Mike
Hind-Smith deplored the fact that
campus clubs had not had a chance
to take a stand on the Ostrom
Plan at Tuesday's AMS meeting.
NO MEETING
In speaking against the athletic
aid plan, he voiced criticism of
Pederson's policy of not calling a
meeting this week to allow the
LSE to back or reject the plan
By LSE constitution, Pederson
was obliged to call a special session when the UN Club passed such
a motion at one of their regular
meetings recently.
According to Hind-Smith, Pederson said that he would call a special assembly but he neglected to do
so.
"Members  of   LSE  didn't   know
what to do at the  AMS  mooting
Tuesday," said Hind-Smith.
CROUPS ARGUED
"Different students from LSE
groups were arguing against each
other because they knew not what
kind of a stand to take," he said.
"A special LSE meeting before
the AMS assembly would have at
least cleared up the points in the
athletic aid plan that were pertinent to the LSE point of view,'
he said.
Unofficial  word  from  one club
confidence"  in  Pederson  will  be
, Remanded in the next regular meet
ing to the group.

Student Complaints
About Cafeteria
First lap of the long road to revamping of UBC athletics
has been completed.
Over two thousand students amended and passed MAD
ahairman Brock Ostrom's athletic aid plan by a vast majority
at thc meeting in the Armory Tuesday noon.
Passing   of   tiie   bill   marks   the.
beginning of u four year long emphasizing of athletics at UBC.
Plan was originally drawn up to
hHp out the obviously ailing sport
picture 'on this campus.
AMENDMENTS
Two amendments were made to
the original Ostrom Plan at the
Tuesday meeting, but the remainder of the plan is unchanged from
the form in which Ostrom present-
ed it. at the special meeting last
November 2,
First amendment, moved by councillor Kd Pederson, places the
money budget to MAA on a sliding
scale to vary with the enrollment.
Money aspect was a big Item of
contention during the meeting but
Pederson's amendment took care
of most of the complaints on the
problem.

Meanwhile,    student    opposition
to   the   regents'   loyally   oath   continues.  Another petition, also with
a goal of  10,000 signatures, is  be-
I ins    circulated.    ASPC    president
: Pete  (loldsehmldt  stated   that   the
j petition will serve two purposes.
I      Pirst,   it   will   show   the   Regents
i that,   the   students   are   concerned
1 with   the  violation  of tenure  non-
I signing  professors  who have  been
fired.   Secondly,   the   petition   will
J indicate to the public that  the students   are  "not   satisfied   with   tin-
way  tilings  are  going   now  at   the

against the plan, were told that

An Undeserved Cloud
The wholly unintentional anc^ complele-.
ly undeserved cloud under which the Home
Economics Department's cafeteria management has been cast should be dispelled at
once.
^The purpose of the Undergraduate Societies Committee questionnaire and investigations remains vague and ill-defined. Accord •
ing to the best information available to the
Ubyssey, the investigation arose out of a pro •
test from a handful of students over quality
and prices of cafeteria food. Student Council,
which probably would have been wise to restrain itself and be content to point out lie
obvious facts and forget the matter, authorized USC Chairman Cy McGuire to set up
an investigating committee and to prepare a
questionnaire to sample student opinion.
,But the fact remains that the questionnaire is being circulated. We would suggest
that any students who are approached by the
investigating committee remember a few
basic facts when preparing their answers.
-I
With Reservations
First and foremost, cafeteria prices are
amazingly low. Had they risen in proportion
to rising costs, students would find themselves in a difficult position again. The Home
Economics department's administrator, Miss
Elizabeth Little, is completely on the students' side. Were there any possible way in
which prices could be lowered, she would
have implemented it long ago.
In the face of steeply rising costs and in
the absence of any subsidy from the university, prices have risen But they have risen
only slightly in proportion to the costs.
It must be remembered that a meal served cafeteria style is, at best, unattractive.
Moreover any institutional food eaten day
after day becomes montonous and tiresome.
While there are doubtless, problems remaining which could be rectified, we are
convinced that the Home Econmics department and Miss Little in particular deserve a
hearty pat on the back—rtot a slap in the
face.
Now that the tumult and shouting has
died, the captains and kings of UBC athletics
should not depart with any Utopian dreams
about what the Ostrom plan will do.
Ostrom's now-approved recommendations are nothing more than what he purported them to be: a plan.
Brock Ostrom has always been the first
to admit that no one can accurately say what
the plan's overall outcome will be.
It was designed to give UBC a much-
needed reorganization of the athletic setup.
Through such revamping, Ostrom and his
supporters hoped and believed that a nev/
interest in and an improved approach to
athletics, particularly inter-collegiate sportj,
would result.
They had good reason to believe that
what has worked in other universities will
work here, provided the plan also included
such modifications as are necessary to UBC's
own peculiar circumstances.
The Ubyssey now believe? that Ostrom
and his fellow-councillors havo provided the
plan and such modifications as can be deemed
necessary at the present time.
But our belief in the plan as passed gives
no reason to believe that it will necessarily
remain adequate throughout the entire four-
year trial period.
Indeed, time may well prove that the
plan as it now stands is radically different
from the eventual method which UBC stu*
dents will decide is the best that can be evolved to suit their purposes.
Ostrom has done a hefty piece of spade
work for which students should be grateful
for many years to come.
But now the onus is upon the student
body itself to study the effects of the plan as
it is put into effect.
No student should remain unware of the
athletic administration setup at any time in
thc future.
t
Willingness to make the plan work, combined with Cautious observation of all results, should be our by-words.
The Bird Cage
If a humorist wants to be any damn good
these days he has to picture himself as riddled with human frailties and fears. He does
this so that his audience, such as it may be,
feels that they have something in common
with him. In other words, he must appear as
a real person and a regular fellow just like
Joe next door, The more petty vices he has
and the more numerous the doubts that obsess him the better the reader likes him. The
reader feels superior to him, and loves him
for the well-meaning old social misfit that he
is.
The humorist achieves this effect best lithe dentist stories. .He sees himself quaking
in the waiting room, thumbing desperately
through decrepit journals in search of escape
while agonized screams issue from within.
Then the nurse comes in, cool as a November
breeze and antiseptic as a bottle of Lysol.
She tells friend humorist he's next. Being
thoroughly human and as frail as grandmother's wicker rocking chair, he turns lo
jelly and blubbers inane excuses which cool,
antiseptic nurse pish-poshes.
Once inside the real person cringes as
Rube Goldberg machines loom menacingly
before him. The dentist goes through the open
wide routine. His bright, little eyes pop joyfully as he sinks his fore-arm into an outsize cavity. He gives a meaningul tweak lo
an exposed nerve and asks humorist (now in
the vicinity of the ceiling) if he can foel
anything. All he can do is guk a little, and
bite the dentist's elbow.
Being a self-imagined humorist I figured it would be the same way when I pay
ed a recent visit to iho denti::t. But  il  was
by Hyfen
different. I set out with my heart in my
mouth where it jostled uncomfortably against the jagged edges of my cavities. The dentist told me my teeth were shot all to hell,
hut not in as many words. He explained that
food had accumulated around my gum-lines
The carbohydrates had undergone a chemical
change, leaving a coating of pure lactic acid
whicli had been eating away the enamel.
It all seemed so reasonable. How inter
csting  science  is.  If you  understand  these
things they become much less fearsome.
As a start, he explained, my teeth needed cleaning. His assistant would attend to
this small detail.
Hi.s assistant did.
She was a fabulous creature with lustrous raven hair, deep brown eyes, ruby lips
apd a petite figure.
"What are you going to do to me?" I
a?ked, bouncing up and down in the chair.
"I'm going to pummice your teeth," she
replied with a sweet, sincere smile. None
of those personality course leers.
"Yeah," I said trying to impress thc
wench with my native wit, "pummice you
won't hurt me?"
She looked at me queerly, and smiled
as an after!bought.
Then she began working. She started the
motor on the pummice brush, and entwined
her arms about my head, pressing it gently
against her bosom.
Soft music played in the waiting room . . .
I've made live or six more appointments.
It's worth the expense if you have your teeth
pummiced regularly. Keeps the carbohydrates from decomposing into acids.
Critic On The Hearth
Klrsten Flagstad is supreme
among singers today. Critics the
world over have agreed ufeon this
sweeping generalisation. Last Saturday night Vancouver had an opportunity to discover wliy such uninhibited praise has been proffered
hy those notoriously dyspeptic
gentlemen of the press, the* critics.
Madame Flagstad's first appearance was disconcerting; a large,
matronly Woman looking even larger in a sleeveless gown of white.
Madame Flagstad's first songs were
also disconcerting. Her voice sounded tired ahd a little lacklustre.
Obviously she was holding bade.
Then she warmed to her arC
Her voice became the perfect
instrument one always Knew it
to be. Her control of breath, flexibility of nuance, plasticity of vocal
line, and mastery of mood were
such as I have never encountered
before. There is no singer today
who'comblnes such sheer vocal perfection, such subtlety ih the creation of atmosphere, and such perfect coloration and enunciation of
words.
Madame Flagstad's deportment
assumed a nobility that equalled
her Interpretations. Her beating
had that dignity, repose and absolute authority that ls to be ex-
pected of a woman who has risen
to be the greatest portrayer of Isolde and Brunnhllde ln the world
today.
The singer's sublime achievement ocurred ln the Haugtussa
song cycle by Orleg. lt was a realization that approached perfection.

LETTERS TO
THE
Editor, The Ubyssey,
near Sir:
The recent production of "Dido
and Aeneas" which has been accorded such high praise on every
side,' brings to mind a song recital
presented one evening last spring
by its gifted director, John Reeves. At that time, Mr. Reeves delighted his small audience with a
group of Elizabethan and contemporary British songs rendered
with groat sensitivity in a fine
tenor voice. Unfortunately, he-
cause the event was not widely
publicized and also dhe to the fact
that it occurred close to final exam
dates, only a few people were able
to attend the concert. Since then,
I have heard a great many regrets expressed hy those who missed it.
1^ is seldom the good fortune
of Vancouver concert-goers to
hear a first-rate musician perforin
music of this calibre, particularly
the raroly-heard Elizabethan songs.
May I suggest, therefore, that a
return performance by Mr. Reeves would be warmly welcomed
and appreciated by the scores ot
musk-lovers on tho campus.
Yours truly,
Nancy  l-illle.

Dr. Frleder Welsmann aroused
the Vancouver Symphony to present one of their most satisfying
concerts to date. Dr. Welsmann is
an excellent musician whose musical conceptions are direct, well-
considered and vitalizing. Under
his direction tho Heethdven Fourth
Symphony glowed from a radiating touch, appealing lesser than
the later symhonies but considered
separately a great work.
The concert was considerably
enhanced by the appearance of
Roman Totenberg as soloist lu the
Brahnis violin concerto. It was in
every way a, solid achievement.
After the opening pages dur'ris
which Mr. Totenberg adjusted himself to the acoustics of tho f.r-

straightforward, manly and winning.

Editor,  Tho   Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Through the blinding tears that
have been streaming down my
face since Tuesday's AMS meeting 1 send you this damp letter of
Inquiry.
Who is it Mr. Editor; who is
the heartless brute that is terrorizing our athletes? Who is it that
is forcing them to "spread their
blood and guts all over the grass
in the Stadium?" Who is it that
makes them practice "till all hours
of the night" aud then sends them
home "too tired to study?" Who
forces them to get "high marks"
and wear those dirty black sweaters around the campus all the time?.

must let those poor boys leave the J

FAITHFUL  MIMEOGRAPH
fctTIRED  FR6M  SERVICE
Faster, more efficient mimeographing service will be
available to UBC groups soon when the Alma Mater Society
installs a new Roneo machine in Brock Hall.
By trading in their worn machine, which has ground
out countless club notices and press releases, the society
has acquired a new $700 machine for $400.
"The new machine will give students better service
because it will save office Workers hours of physical work
sorting and arranging," AMS treasurer John MacKinnon
said;

Arts Football Team
Engineers showed "once and for all" which is the best
faculty on the UBC campus when their highly touted football
squad went down to an 18-0 defeat at the hands of the Artsmen,
Wednesday noon.
  <i    The challenging engineering  11
never got past their own 50-yhrd
line except fbr the first five, minutes of the game.
DP Student Arrives
Two Months Late
For First Lectures
A DP student, whose heritage has been threatened by
war and communism throughout the ages, has finally arrived, two months late for his first
lecture.
Vsewolod Koyander, whose Russian parents,fled from communist
clutches to Yugoslavia many years
ago, was prevented from taking
advantage of the first part of his
UBC scholarship by Immigration
officials ln Europe.
He still doesnt know why he was
h*W atifl what caused them to release him, but two months after
his scheduled trip he was flown
to Canada by Ihtertiatlonal Refugee
Organization.
The one year scholarship offered
him by International Student's Service may be postponed now until
ne¥t yeaT, When be will resume
studies in architecture. Meanwhile
the 26-year student, born in Yugoslavia and schooled In Germany,
thinks he has hun»ped into the
world's most wonderful country.
"There is so much gaiety here.'
he said "Students are bright and
cheerful, 30 different from the stiff
and serious student of Europe who
does nothing hut study.
And for the first time we have
found a European who likes our
liquor laws. He thinks alchoho'l
should not only be expensive hut
extremely hard to get.
One thing promised him however, was not realized. At every
whistle stop across Canada he was
warned of a wet future in Vancouver "where they have summer on
the second Tuesday In August."
He arrived on the second Saturday ln November to one of the
brightest days of tiie year.
The lighter but faster artsmen
ran the ball over the loser's line
three times on end runs to rack
up the lopsided score.
John Fraser, member of the sec-
end year arts executive, made two
of the three touchdowns while
Bill Lunny, manager of the Arts
Intramural teams, ran over the
third touchdown.
Bill Neen, president ot the second year arts executive has set out
a challenge to meet the englneeis
on the rugger field "any time,
If they dare to show their heads
on a playing field again."
Inter-faculty chatrlot race tomorrow is going to be a walkaway for the artsmen, says Neen.
"We'll show the engineers which
faculty Is best."

inq Discs Seen
By Catalans
BERKELEY, Cal. — Two flying
saucers, "brighter than a star" and
with vapor trails following them
were reported seen by U of California students recently.
Students going to the cafeteria
about 7 p.m. reported that they
saw an eliptlcal object travelling
north across the sky towards San
Francisco. Reports of saucers
came from San FVauclsco between
8-8:80 p.m.
Hamilton field air base reported numerous calls during the evening. However, they reported that
there was nothing in the air that
could be mistaken for saucers and
that they had uo reports from their
officers. "We are only responsible
for what goes out," officials stated. Unless the air force received
a concrete report from one of Its
officers lt would not investigate.
A resident of San Francisco
claimed that "... they appeared
to be round with searchlights pointing up to the clouds.'' A U of Cal.
student gave a similar description.

DON ADAMS ace Thunderbird Hockey netminder is rated as
one*of the best in College hockey. A veteran, Don considered a
Varsity education a greater benefit than pro-hockey.

More Important Than Pro Hockey
By   H^RM   FRYDENLUND
The UBC Thunderbird hockey team Represents one of the
finest college teams on the continent.
Don Adams, veteran goal tender, is without question th*-*
finest goalie in college hockey today.
Don    was    horn

where he learned his hockey with
top junior and senior teams, lie
Wl such promise that he was bo-
jseiged w'itli iirofessional offers
when lie was only HI.
The advent ot* war, however, interfered   with   his   hockey   career.
He served  with  distinction  in  the
Canadian Army, and saw action in j
France and Clcrinany, i
MORE  VALUE
His .service years convinced him
that he would benefit more from
university than in pro hockey. His
decision to come to I lit' was due
largely to the excellent physical
education   course   offered.

First Class standings since his enrolment.
Adams played hfs first game in
the bine and gold uniform as a replacement for the then incumbent
Hill House, aad since that time lias
been an outstanding and efficient
performer as Thunderblrd's regular goalie.
NO WEAKNESS .
Don's greatest asset lies in his
superb anticipation and unequalled ability to use his hands lo ward
off potential points. •
lie has no discernable weakness
and plays all shots with eipial agility,
As the last line of defense, to
term him adequate would he gross
understatement.
A player's true value is measured best by his team spirit and enthusiasm. In Ihis regard Don
Adams unquestionably rates us the
closest thing to indispeusibilit-
that can arise on a university team.
"This is a big weekend for women grass hockey enthusiasts," UBC team manager said yesterday.

Braves Stop'Skins
To Hold Inter-city
English Rugby Lead
UBC Braves came out on top
8-3 over a hairy Redskin squad
in a bruising English Rugger
match Tuesday in the Stadium
under very cold weather conditions. *
Braves found the under-rated
'Skins to be tough opposition, and
had to fight hard to keep their
place in tho Bell-frvlng Cup lea?,'Ue
secure.
In the first half, both teams played far more rough than smart
rugby, and no team gained an ad>,
vantage, although tho Braves did
repeatedly move Into a position to
score.
SUDDEN   PLAY
Most of the period was played in
sudden stops-and'starts, induced ty
the prevailing! icy wind which
swept the field and created flashes
of brilliance in individual players
such as armflalllng Brave fullback
Dave Bryn-Jones and scrum man
Lloyd Hale.
Second half play proved far more
Interesting than the rather sloppy
previous period.
Ten minutes after the- start, Jerry Palmer, 3-line man for the
Braved, finally managed to get out
a pass to win§ Grant Butts who
awoke from his enforced lethargy
long enough to step through the
whole Redgkln squad and score
after a 30 yard run. Convert was
missed.
LOOSE  SCRUM'
Next man to score for the Braves
was Bon Duff, who picked up the
hall from a loose scrum to score.
Hulls completed the convert to put
the Braves aliead 8-0.   '
Soon afterwards, right wing an.!
on I coach Bob McKee of, the Redskins
I went over for that team's only try.
