MEETING
TODAY
New Method Speeds Binding
MANUALLY OPERATED sewing machine pictured above
is the type UBC bookbinding department now uses only
for newspapers and narrow margin magazines. Mrs. Brewer,
one of the four-member staff, shows how they sew pages
together.
ELECTRICALLY OPERATED machine is the new addition the department is now using. It sews pages together
about ten times faster than the hand machine. The other
three members of the bookbinding staff are Mrs. Jamieson,
Mr. J. Colmer, and Mr. P. Fryer.
The Great Athletic Debate is to go through another
round of fruitless argument today. We shajl no doubt hear
the same schemes we have been listening to for the past few
weeks, It is time, therefore, to realize that all the schemes
that have been brought up recently are but strands obviating the core of student frustration.
We have heard complaints against the coaching of the
teams, against the inordinate authority of the administration. All these strands focus in the personality of Bob
Osborne, who doubles as head of the School of Physical
Eduaction and chairman of the Men's Athletic Council.
As head of a department, Mr. Osborne selects the
members of his teaching staff. These instructors are then
the cadre from which team coaches, are chosen. Mr. Osborne's fifst consideration, of course, must be their qualification as instructors. Even if we ass time that instructors
are easier to find than good coaches, we must not forget
that the major part of a coach's remuneration still comes to
him from his duties as instructor.
However, it seems that although Physical Education
instructors have no permanency of tenure, Mr. Osborne's
loyalty to his staff supercedes all considerations timt he
has taken upon himself as chairman of the Men's Athletic
Council.
We have been listening recently to many bitter allusions to some unspecific windmill called "the administration". The whole problem has been presented to us by some
as a sort of "class warfare" between the administration and
the student body.
In reality it was only a reluctance on the part of students to'mention Mr. Osborne's name that kept them* from
tackling the problems with specific remedies in mind.
If we view the problem keeping Mr. Osborne's position in mind, we can see that the problem of coaching rests
more on his shoulders than on the shoulders of the director, of athletics, whether he be responsible to student
authorities or not, because the athletic director would be
limited to the choices already made by Bob Osborne.
Similarly, on inspecting the setup of the Men's Athletic
Council, we can see that complaints about overdue administration authority ate based not so much on a lack of parity
in student representation, as the failure of student delegates
to lay down their demands more emphatically.
If Mr. Osborne is to be a party to a cooperative effort
of trying to raise the level of athletics on this campus, he
will have to give greater Consideration in retaining and
hiring staff members to thc coaching needs of our teams.
Furthermore, Mr. Osborne, as a main party concerned
in this effort, should resign from the chairmanship of the
Men's Athletic Council, and then bo given a seat as member
of the council on an equal footing with student representatives. This would probably allay the fears and suspicions
of domination by the administration which the student body
now seems to hold.
No possible administrative change in Ihe Ostrom Plan
would solve the problems we are now facing. It is entirely
up to Bob Osborne.
By MIKE AMES
Output of-Vthe UBC Library's Binding room since
last June has doubled the
output in a corresponding
five months previous to June.
With a complete new staff,
new pjeces of machinery, and
an efficient assembly line method, the bookbinding department
is running out newly bound
books nt the average rate of
one every two hours. Another
way of explaining it is that they
•are producing ten volumes or
Ufe magasltte per hour, fully
botind and ready for the library
shelf!
NIW MA0HINI8
Major reason for the remarkable speed-up is the acquisition
of two new machined, one 'or
glueing "and one for sewing. Library officials are understandably proud of the fact that the
sewing machine ls the only one
of its kind in Canadian universities. There are two other "Ovjbi-
Sewing Machines" in Canada today, but one is privately owned
and the other one is with the
Queens Printers, Ottawa.
JUIT ONI HOUR
Worked by electricity this machine is contrasted with another
kind (both pictured above) that
is still in common use. What
oun be done by hand, und what
used to be done by hand at the
UBC department, in one day, is
now accomplished in one hour!
The over sewing Implement
binds the books sturdier and
tighter than the hand method.
The glueing machine also relieves workers from doing the
task by hand. A wheel revolves
carrying the book covers through
a pan of glue.
fhe binding room now does
work for the entire campus, not
just the library. Although they
do  reblnd  books,  most of  the

Ten Colleges
Needed For
New Plan
UBC may be participating in
a new Soviet Exchange proposal offered by McGill University.
The proposal was revealed In n
letter from MoOlllV External Affairs Director and read to council
at their .Monday night meeting.
INDf UNDENT ACTION
The proposal is Independent, of
any NFCUS action. MoOill hopes
that a sufficient number of Canadian universities will be Interested
to make the exchange possible. At
least ten universities will be
needed.
A metlen proposing ratifies*
tlen of the Meant plan was
tabled by council until their December let meeting. Council felt
It neeeeeary to confer with Its
officials, ae there must be financial backing fer the plan.
NFCUS UNITY
The original proposal for an exchange of Russian ahd Canadian
students failed to be approved at
the recent NFOUS conference.
Laval University had threatened
to withdraw from NIFCUS H the
•exefymge ma* approved. The propositi was dropped to preserve the
unity of NFCUS.
AMS and NFOUS president Raghbir Hasi voted against the proposal
at the conference and gave the
need for NFCUS unity as his reason
for such action.
Explains Failure Of
Party In Elections
The specific aims of the CCF were established by Frank
Snowsell, MLA for Saanich, while addressing a public meeting
Wednesday.
He stated that the aim of the
CCF Ih to establish nn economy in
which the people are In business
for themselves, supplying- their
own needs, und not dependent on
private Interests for the necessities
of life.
His speech was concerned with
the question "Is the CCF Socialistic?"
NO ANSWER
In his Introduction, the speaker
stressed that he did not intend to
define Socialism, nor answer the
question directly, but outline the
CCF beliefs and policies, and allow each listener to decide for
himself.
He pointed out that the only wuy
to  Judge   the   CCF  ln   action   is
where it has attained power — ln
the province of Saskatchewan.
CCF  PRINCIPLES
Mr. Snowsell took^ several articles of the Regina Manifest and
showed how these principles had
been applied ln Saskatchewan
through welfare measures, government and co-operative enterprise, and by freeing the people
from the absolute control of the
big financial concerns.
ELECTION  FAILURE
Queried ou ther easoe for tbe
failure of the CCF to win the general election or the recent by-
elections, the speuher stated hi*
opinion that the CCF bus been too
concerned with pointing out defects ln the old line parties, and
not enough concerned with a positive presentation of the CCF program.
Council Refuses I H C
Further Expenditures
IttWrnatiijnal House Committee will be refused further
requisitions as a result of a motion passed at Monday night's
council meeting.
Auction
Continuing the third year of instigating ptomaine poisoning on
campttt, the Aggie Undergraduate
Society will auction off baked
goodies made by the girls enrolled
in their faculty.
Inspired by past year's proceeds
from the food sidles, Aggie students will again attempt to bring
Christmas cheer into many Vancouver Homes.
Last year, they were able to provide five families with a happy
Christmas that they wouldn't have
had If not for the Aggie's efforts.
Auction will be held on Wednesday, December 3. Location of sale
will be announced
JimleTwoH
Reason, for this action was the
failure of 1HC to obtuln a requisition from council for 3000 Christmas cards 1HC recently had printed.
The cards, hud cost $12fl, nearly
all of which will have to be paid
by AMS If the cards are not sold.
Part of the debt would be paid
with what remains of the $7">
grant given 1HC by a motion
paused at the AMS budget meeting.
The curds are not selling at present and there seems little likelihood that many will be sold. ^This
will leave council with u debt resulting from an Infraction of AMS
regulations.

Athletic Problems In Review
Further revision of the
UBC Athletic Program is to
be discussed in the emergency general meeting of the
Alma Mater Society today in
the Armouries.
Today three main motions will
be presented.
1. Daniel Tepoorten will
move that the athletic problem
essentially pertains to American football and the failure of
our team in the Evergreen Conference. This difficulty is
caused by the lack of sympathy
and co-operation on the part of
the Senate and Administration
to allow athletic scholarships.
Also that footbull players are
required to spend n great deal of
their time to produce a football
team that will provide competition I'or the large following of
spectators lt has whicli contributes to the maintenance of
minor sports. Therefore Tepoorten moves that athletic scholarships bo approved providing the
recipients meet all .scholastic
standards required by the I'ni-
verslty Administration.
The second main motion will
be presented hy Student's Council. It was passed ut a Council
meeting last Monday night and ls
it reversal of a motion deefated
last Friday at the general meeting.
It reads: "THAT Student's
Council feels that any Freshman ruling it undesirable because it interferes with the
growth of Individual responsibility and because it hurts
many students who can carry
on extra-curricular activities
and also keep up their scholastic standing.
THEREFORE vve respectfully
request the Semite to rescind the
freshman tilling for athletics;
and ius a step toward the solution of the problem to reconsider
re
mising   university   entrance
iliiirements and standards.
The argument for the rescinding or the Freshman eligibility
rule is simply one of quantity
plus quality. Senior UHC teams
will never produce winning teams
under Ihe present set-up If they
are not allowed freshmen.
Against this argument, supported by the Senate is that Athletic freslimen have a high mortality rate at exam time.
The third motion concerning
entrance In au Inter-Canadian
University League Is Obviously
one of finances. With the funds
forthcoming tills could be an
ideal league lor UBC. PAGE TWO THE    UBYSSEY

E  FISHY  EYE
Antither example of the way
in which one can, with the bent
of motives, give freedom a beating came up in the Canadian
Press a couple of days ago. An
Ottawa Judge fined the National
News Company >a total of $1100
and costs for distributing obscene
literature.
FeW things could be more Illuminating than the judge's re-
ttiifiiltt. ttyeiiNHtg of ErsklHfe Cald-
wall's "trnjeic flrdtthd", he sitirt,
"fhe Inngitnge is i«wd and

TWiifllH
Hi
v/oik Is done tin magaiines. Mr.
P. Fryer, snpertntendent, stated
that "When a hook Is hound
here, lt doesn't come back to
be re-botfnd." He emphasized
the fact that the new etftflpfhent
n«d the expert Workers ensured
top performance.
Mr. Fryer showed llbyssey reporters at an on the scene Interview the complete process from
receiving a volume of magazines
until the same volume was
shelved in book form.
The covers and all full page
advertising are first cut out of
the magazines the volume is
grouped together, the edges
smoothed by cutting, and t'">n
the volume is sewn together.
The cardboard Is measured ror
the covers, glued onto linen, and
then attached to the pages.
SLIDE RULE
A special system for staggering measurements so the corresponding dimensions of the pages
and the cover (the cover 1«
slightly larger than the pages)
work out uniformly Is being devised by Fryer. This "slide rule"
ls his own Idea. It ls expected
that this i-nle will relieve tbe
Job of having to measure each
cover or group of pages touched.
Library officials feel confident
that if, within the next ten years,
job orders increase three times
more than present orders, they
will only have to add more
workers. Their new equipment
would be quite capable of handling a heavier load.
Along with the new equipment
and the new staff, this industrious department also has new
quarters. Previously in a small
dusty room, they are now situate^ In the bnsement of the Library, with ample room for expansion.
as to whether "sexy" llteralura
causes an appreciable amount of
barm. It makes money for the
writers and publishers, by substituting the picture und the
printed page for imagination and
the pencil scrawl; but people who
are led into nnt'l-soelal sex behaviour are, like their victims,
usually suffering from the effects
of our antiquated and unworkable
' sex code, fhe profiteers from sex
— including th* writers nnd pub-
tellers — draw their living from
the same som'tie. The rettedy 's
to be ttrtittd in changing tftfr codes
and the society Which Wtpports

law allows wm t6 prevent the

Since title (it the essentials of
democracy Is free access to information, any person who interferes With tfiiCh ttcCeMB Ih sabotaging the democracy which we
have. No person, not even a judgs
or a fishy eye, Is quite free from
Irrational   personal   prejudices.
No person, therefore, should
have the right to determine what
one crin or cntttittt read, for tin
exercise of that right, in the
name of cieahiihess, lends to

RE6UCE CRIME
a dirijgerotts precedent was Set
when the Canadian t'ar.Homent
decided, on highly mertfi principles, to sifppi'ess CHtte Comics,
if they hoped that this move
would end. br even reduce crime,
they Were a long why off base;
chn fthe destroy ttn ftbjSet by removing the mirror which reflects
It? By Its action, parliament -oc-
cflmpft&hfcd only one thing; It established that all federal political
parties supoprted the right of the
government to regulate what Ca
nadlans could read, fhe right had
been exercised previously, but
this put the stamp of full political approval on it.
MORE WAGES
The Organized workers may emphasize their need for more
wages, the employers their need
forjower taxes and less regulation. The greatest need, however,
both long and short range. In this
era of world-wide political reaction, is to retain and, where possible, to extend tli right to print
and rend what we wish.

Stated in a letter to Raghbir Basl,
president of the AMS, by J. W.
Nelll, associate director of the
Botanical Depa'rtment.

Jvetll requested that president
Basl help in the Botanical Department's compalgn to preserve the

Grass;
Money
attention to the "Keep off the
grass, plense" signs, student would
aid in lowering maintenance costs'.
It was pointed out ln the letter
that, although th* wiring off of a
large part of the campus wag an
effective means of controlling student foot traffic, It did not add to
the attractiveness ot the grounds.
This year a number of little eigne
are being used Instead.
EXTRA WORK
Mr. Nelll stated that the lawns
will he ruined by heavy foot traffic   in   wet  weather,  thus  making
exti-a work and creating added ex-
"pense.
lt was 'emphasized ln the letter
that, while plans for new pathways
were under consideration, It would
be greatly appreciated If UBC students cooperated by obeying the
"Keep off the grass" signs.

Mr. Chaplin is more thnn a love-

Claire Bloom appears as the

and as a pansy, nnd with Buster
Keaton in the final music hall
scene he ls the unrivalled master
of comedy.

INTEN8E HUMOR
"LimellgW with all its moments of intense humor ls essentially tragic. It is also to'a

Both teams will be in action this

from the city league. On Friday
night the Birds will take ou Clover

Club Polar Bears at King Kd gym.
Dick Penn's J.V.'e provide the preliminaries to both contests against
Arctic Club and Eilers. Coach Jack
Pomfret will exhibit the same
Btarttng line up that split' two
games with the Wwtern Washington Vikings last weekend. Bob
Bone, Ernie Nyhaug and John McLeod, three new Thunderbirds who
have been turning In polished performances in recent weeks, will
comprise the starting forward line
with capable returning Dan Zaharko and Brian Upson at the guard
positions,
(Hue fingered Bone, one of last
year's J.V.Js, Is a major factor In
the newly 'found hustle inspiring
the Thunderbirds. Although he is
not tttll for a forward, he manages

Splash Picture Gloomy
As Veterans Graduate
By JOHN SPRINGER
After two weeks of steady practice under the watchful
eyes of head coach Whittle and his new and capable assistant,
ex-UBC star and U of W graduate Bob Stangroom, there is
still ample reason for gloom.
The   Thunderbird   tankmen   of*-

senior "AM league this year, but as
yet have failed' to come up with a
Win. However, by the end of the
season, the hustle and desire
srhown so far will pay off In wins
1953 will be a far cry from the
1952 powerhouse, even though in
diving and in free style events a
host of freshmen will fill up the
depleted ranks.
MARIK   OUTSTANDING
Undoubtedly the. standout for
the mermen will be Jerry Murlk,
who came to UBC from Europe
via Toronto. In 1947 he was considered among the top ten free
styler in the world, having swam
110 yards ln a little over 58 seconds, The big question facing Jerry this season will be whether he
tan afford the time needed to get
back into shape, considering that
he Is back In school for the first
time in over six years. •
Ken Doolan came to UBC after
declining offers from \Vashlngton
State College. He is Canadian
senior gymnast champion and has
been converted to ti diver. He will
team up with returning letterman
and Conference champion Al Bortli-
wick. Added depth will be offered
by  Jim   l-Yiiser,   who   is  Ontario's

TMPORARY   CO-EDITOR8
UiUtiat
It's not as easy as it looks!
Two slightly deflated ex-sports editors will be leaving
the Pub offices this morning, their views on the stupidity
and laziness of all newspapermen considerably altered. They
found in their brief term that at least one editor is expected
to go to the printers the day before every issue, to attend
to all the mechanical details of turning out a newspaper
(take note all delinquent editors).
All this on top of editing the copy. At the printers
he is confronted with the problems of piecing together the
giant jig-saw puzzle which will be the final page. He must
decide on whether to bruise the feelings of the soccer
players or the rowers when he chops four paragraphs off
some story. As a last resort he may even shorten his own
story.
However, don't get the impression that an I.Q. of at
least 150 is a necessary qualification for being a pubster
while passing exams. Just come down and you will see at
a glance that it isn't so. Why, some of the writers are evtn
physical education majors. Actually we guarantee that you
would enjoy the work and you certainly could be used.
Rugger Team Plays
South Burnaby Sat.
•y DAVE ANFIELD
This Saturday rugby returns to
the stadium as the feature campus
attraction. The powerful UBC
squad plays the second place South
Ruruaby fifteen in wlint should
be one of the best "Miller Cup"
games of the season.
The Inst time the first place
"Chlc-l's"' met the Burnaby boys,
Yi.rsity came out on top by a <> to
:'. score, largely due to the brilliant
run und cross kick by winger Don
Spence.
The big game of the year will be
in this coming March when the
Thunderbirds take on the touring
Queen's University of Belfast, Ire
land. This year's fifteen looks like
one of the strongest to wear tbe
blue and gold for the past four ;>r
five seasons. Three players from
the old country supply a much
needed punch to the scrum. Derek
Viillis and Bob Morford from Ens
who may make the fans forget the
name of Wotherspoon.
The third International is Bill
Mulkolland, "the lazy Scot," who
hooked tor the Birds lust season
aud is probably the top hook in the
province.
Because of a Senate ruling, letterman Doug MacMillan is unable
to play in Thunderbird matches,
ills loss is keenly felt as be is a
tower of strength in the" forward
wall.
wa» of course the spark plug of
tbe S.B. soccer squad as well as
being a; better than average base-
bailer. On his-arrival at UBC. Bill
calmly stepped lilto the key centre-
forward position and has since
more than capably handled tha-t
position — a fact borne out by the
steadiness of his scoring.
While on the playing field. Bill
*u»ds the team first, by always
hustling himself, and secondly, hy
verbal encouragement, which is indeed putting it mildly. The fact
is he is often refem-ed to affectionately by his team mates as "old
yappy Popowich," However, Ills
needling voice lias many times
aroused a lazy fullback into action
in time to save a goal.
Bill Is nt loss as to how to explain the poor record of I win. 1
tie, and I losses which I'BC lms
posted this year. Tiie team is practically identical with the one
which last year placed
second to Collingwood.
(I e Cents
goal  —
to blame luuy . —k for a*targe part
| of the team's troubles, (loal posts
! have, according to Bill, stopped
j more UBC shots than opposing
: goal keepers. Iu last Sunday's
'game. Bill continues, he and vet
| erim Bud Dobson battered the opposing goalposts throughout the
I entire game without scoring 'and
winger Ken Campbell actually hud
the ball bit a rock and bounce over
his foot as he was about to shoot
from six feet in front of the goal,
Their opponents scored tlieli- only
goal, whicli proved to be the winner, when a cross from the wing
hit their unsuspecting centre forward on the buck and deflected
through the gowl. Similar situations have been plaguing the teutu
all season. As this year's captain,
Bill Is very concerned over the
present situation but feels thut
with a little luck and a little more
fan support the team will return
to their winning ways.
Last     May.     Bill     received     his
Bachelor's Degree in Phys. Kd. and
is currently completing Ills Teach-
a    dose   et's   Training.   We  feel  that,   lucky
