denied charges of Russian warmongering ln an address to the

"The U.S. wants war In order to

able to Impose her will on other
countries.' Winch claimed. "The
more a country prepares for defense the more chance there Is for
her to use It for offense."

New Attempt Reported
Backed By Council
An attempt may he made this afternoon to unseat AMS
president Vaughn Lyon.
Reliable campus sources said late Wednesday that a motion
of non-confidence, probably backed by at least one student
councillor, will be raised at the Fall General Alma Mater
Society meeting in the Armories at 12:30.
President Lyon told the Ubyssey:
"I personally hope the Issue .Is
raised. If there are any complaints
I would welcome the opportunity
to clear the air."   .
If the motion passes, treasurer
Phil Anderson, LSE President
John de Wolf, Public Relation Officer Terry Nichols and Vice-President Phil Dadson will resign
from the council.
All have affirmed "complete"
support of Lyon.
. Meanwhile, other campus sources claimed that Ivan Feltham,
former presidential candidate and
Open House dhaJrman had admitted privately that he had been behind last week's non-confidence
motion at the student council meet-
ins and. is still In favor of unseat*
ing Lyon.
He told a Ubyssey reporter: "I
have absolutely no comment to
make. That Is final."
The council move was led by BIU

AMS Meeting Will Amend
At the AMS meeting at noon today the
Undergraduate Societies will demand faculty editions of the Ubyssey.
They asked for special editions at the

The USC could obtain its own advertises to pay for such » special edition. Part

Why Not Ask Ubyssey?
'■-*' In an attempt to bring to the students a
humorous "feature story on the birth of four
kittens in Maclnnes Hall, a few of the residents have suffered, through no fault of their
own, at the hands of the administration.
.   The reporter and photographer in attempting to get pictures and information
info a window of a locked room.
The residents of the Hall Who were involved were ''hauled up" before a board and
threatened with expulsion from the Dorms.
* Instead of asking the editors of the Ubyssey why the sanctity of Maclnnes Hall was
violated, innocent students were intimidated.
Why so much fuss is, being made over
something that is not particularly important
and only quite amusing amazes us.
The reasons fo% chastising an innocent
student who was induced by the Ubyssey to
help us get a photograph astounds us.
Every newspaper somatimee has to go
to great lengths to gat a story. The means
that we used are not unreasonable in light
of the situation.
- W-the ifteafl* «**>- tmreSsonabW theirihr
Ubyssey should be contacted, not residents
of Maclnnes Hall.
We are not particularly interested as to
the administration's attitudes to the birth of
kittens in the Women's Dormitories.
We are vitally interested in the arbitrary manner in which they intimidate aAd
threaten the members of the staff of this
newspaper and those that are assisting them.
Ubyssey's Proposal for USC Issues
It the Undergraduate Societies
Committee wishes to have
faculty editions, the Editorial
■Board of the Ubyssey is prepared to offer two plans by
Which this may be accomplished.
The first plan ls to print a
•Speelal edition on a Wednesday when no regular edition of
the Ubyssey appears. This paper coUfd not be called a "Uby-
ssey" since there is a special
oontract covering "official publication's of the Alma Mater
The edition would be financed by advertising obtained by
•t h e Undergraduate Society
-publishing it or by the Commerce Dept. advertising com
mlttee. The edltoYlal board ls
willing ta assist financing from
Its advertising credits.
The Undergrad society could
print whatever It desired ln
such an issue and the Ubyssey
would make no editorial requirements or conditions.
The second plan whereby a
regular edition of the Ubyssey
is used for a faculty issue requires many considerations.
The original motion tabled last
spring states "that the undergraduate societies with an enrollment of not less than 4.6
percent of the »t§d«nt body be
.granted the prlfftege of publishing one issue of the Ubyssey per year ..."
Only Agriculture, Engineering and Law come within this
nrovlalon. The others requested only one page per year. The
Ubyssey editorial board Is willing to give one page quite readily, provided that there is nothing in the page that will bring
discredit to the Alma Mater
Society or to the University.
With regard to publishing of
a complete edition the editorial
board would propose:
THAT since the Ubyssey has
been very closely budyeted any
change In format, use of
special or colored Inks, or extra
use of engraving be borne by
the undergrad society, and
THAT in order to provide the
student body with its regular
news ooverage, one half tbe
space on the front page be set
aside for regular news coverage, and
THAT 15 column -inches on
the editorial page (page 2)
be set aside for the editorial'
board, and
THAT on page four only stories and pictures pertaining to
sports shall appear, and
THAT the masthead on page
two appear as decided upon
by tho editorial board and
THAT in order to protect
the Publications Board, and
the AUna Mater Society from
lawsuitf, and adverse public opinion, the finm-1 decision as to
what shall or shall not appear
In the paper shall rest with the
editorial board.
The editorial board is willing
to discuss these'terms with the
USC at any time. It feels that
the first proposal Is better ln
that It gives the undergraduate greater scope and less restriction.

Suffering And Privaticwn
Price of "Better
"Most of us must pay part of the price of-peace through
suffering and privation for a "better world," claimed'Mrs. E. L.
Stephen speaking to the UN Club Tuesday noon.
Mrs. Stephen, often called "thet*;
grandmother of the UN," Who is
now secretary of the Vancouver'
UN Society, went on to Say that
the youth of today are either lofty
Idealists or tremendous sinners.
"The UN owes more to the League of Nations than one gives credit to. The knowledge, experience,
policy and program of the league
have helped us to give the UN a
'better backing force. But the failures of the League of Nations
could be recurrnnt in the UN if we
give way to discrimination and apathy,'  she said. '
Mrs. Stephen felt the charter of
the UN Represents the best agreement that could be reached by GO
Trygve Lie's demand that all nations be allowed Into the UN has
been th-3 most progressive steps
taken towards o> better relationship amongst all 'peoples of the
world, Mrs. Stephen declared.     >i
She concluded with an exhortation to.maintain optimism ln the
work of the UN and to bear with
It ln Its seemingly slow progress—
"We must hitch our Wagon to the
stars and plod along * through th'e
mud,' she laid.

Perhaps we are not so far from the days of
the cave man after all. 1 urn positive that a
Neanderthal man would take to hockey with
amusing aptitude.
Or could It be that these Amasons were
practicing with such avidity for the day when
rolling pins and broom handles would replace
the hockey sticks? Ah, yes this seems to be a
more reasonable exiplanutlon, for to say that
these girls are uncivilised would be to admit (although to a lesser degree of course," that we
men are too.
Banishing the thoughts I concentrated on
the "game." it was during this period that I
discovered a Hinull white bull wus the Immediate
object of the slashing and not the legs of the
opposing side.

Bight players from last year's

fret at last week's practices.
Among old 'Birds returning to
the nest are: Art Phillips, John
Southcott and Brian Upson.
Maurle Mulhern, Ron Stuart and
Ron Blssett will be eligible to play
at Christmas, provided they pass
their exams.
Dick Penn, coach of the Chiefs
said that this year was "the most
favorable   turn-out   in   sometime."
Two newcomers from Victoria
have already caught Pomfret's eye.
The new men are Elmer Mathews
and Ralph Hudson. Both are versi-
tile, adept at playing either forward or guard positions. Matthews,
a transfer from St. Martin's College, Wash., played last year for
Art Chapman's Victoria Individuals.
Hudson, like Mathews has had
a great deal of experience. He played last year for the U of Washington Frosh.
Pomfret takes an optimistic view
of this year's hoop picture.
"With players.like Mathews and
Hudson to give us depth, I think
we can finish at least a couple of
notches higher."
