more have shown Interest.
Committee Formed at Monday's Meeting;
Pop Bottle Subsidization Plan Dropped
The high cost of meals in UBC's cafeteria will be investigated by a committee struck off by Student Council Monday
night.
«» j
Chairman of the committee will
be Cy McGuire, chairman of the
Undergraduate Societies Committee, who was commissioned to "investigate thfe cost of mealB ln the
cafeteria."
At present, cafeteria meals can
be bought at 60 cents each it students purchase special books which
entitles them to 26 meals for $16.
This system was recently set up
by the foods and eervlces depart*
ment.
Some councillors feel that the
prices now being charged are too
high.
At the same time, council voted
to drop their request to subsidize
pop bottle sales ln the cafeteria
so that students would not have
to  pay  deposits.
They rejected the plan when they
heard a report from USC chairman
Cy McGuire, who has been Investigating the suggestion for some
weeks.
He told councillors that during
the month of October approximately 1,000 bottles were lost ln the
cafeteria. He said 65 bottles a day
disappeared and one out of every
six was not returned.

Members Added
To Sigma Tau Chi
Five more persons have been
named to swell the ranks of UBC's
honorary fraternity, Sigma Tau
Chi.
Announcement of new members
was made Tuesday by Gordon
Baum,
Following is a list of new members: Bill Haggert, Don Duguid,
Brock Ostrum, Doug FrankUn and
Al Goldsmith.
UBC's War Memorial Gym fund will definitely get a slice
->f this year's Mardi Gras profits.
An IFC-Pan-Hell committee decided Tuesday night that
'an unspecified portion" of the profits will go to the gym and
he rest will be channelled to a variety of off-campus charities.
Decision   came  after  a  heated** _-».'
month-long debate on the advis
ability   of   the   precedent-making
move,
ANNUAL  CHANOI
ID past years the total profits
have gone to charities. Recipients
have been changed annually.
Committee spokesmen, who flatly refused to mention any possible
percentages, said the decision was
made because "it Is Imperative
that the gym fund drive go over
the top this year."
Oym fund chairman Bill Haggert said he was still hoping for
a large slide of the take and hinted he may use the move to persuade other campus groups to donate profits from large spring functions to the fund.
PAIR SPLIT
The Mardi Oras committee will
continue to thrash out the problem
of a fair distrubution.
Down-town charities, they point
out, remain in a desperate position
and the gym Is a project strictly
for student benefit.
"We only have so much money
and we can't give It all to everybody. It's going to be tough to
decide but students can rest assured both that the gym will get
a fair share and that our obligations to charity will not be forgotten," IFC. president Al Gold,
smith said.

Big Firecracker Sparks
Nationalization Meet
Passing reference to communism brought a 10 inch firecracker booming into Arts 100 at noon Wednesday when student Liberals and CCF debated pros and cons of nationalization;
When Liberal leader Don Lans-<8~
kail   uttered   the   word   "Commu-
needs university-trained officers in
view of recent expansion and
authorities have enlarged the Veteran undergraduate scheme, which
has been ln operation for the past
three years, to include non-veteran students ln all faculties.
If accepted, a successful student
will be commissioned In the Canadian army active force as second
lieutenant and placed on full pay
and allowances while completing
his final university year.
In announcing the scheme officers of the UBC contingent of tho
Canadian Officers' Training Corps
stated  while preference would  be
given to students who have taken
COTC training when all other factors are equal, non members of the
COTC would receive consideration.
Application from students and
further details of the scheme can
be obtained from the COTC orderly
room in the Armory, Major W. W.
Mathers, arm resident staff officer at UBC said today.
In announcing the plan, army
headquarters officials at Ottawa
stated It was their aim to appoint
400 officers to the Army from all
universities across Canada, In previous years UBC has nupplled about
10 per cent of the veteran under"
graduate officers.
UNCLAIMED AMS PHOTOS
CLUTTER  OFFICE  DESK
Two hundred students have not picked up their AMS
card pictures which will allow them into downtown theatres
at reduced rates.
"The pictures have been paid for," John McKinnon,
treasurer said Tuesday, "so that in not collecting them,
students are not claiming their own property."
"In addition," he said, "the pictures are cluttering up
the receptionist's desk in the AMS office, thus lowering
her efficiency."
UBC HOLIDAY, SERVICE
TO MARK ARMISTICE DAY
The university will close Saturday to commemorate
tiie dead of two wars.
This was announced today by President N.A.M. MacKenzie, who declared November 11 a public holiday.
Memorial services will be conducted in Brock Hall
jointly sponsored by the Alma Mater Society, the UBC
branch of the Canadian Legion and the 196th Western
Universities Battalion Association.
nist" while listing the various economic theories, the door to the
room was opened slightly and the
bomb was thrown in, knocking over
a, waste basket.
Otherwise the meeting was quiet.
Arguing the pro of the question
was ex-UBC student Alex McDonald of the CCF. "Merger of companies is shoving out new enterprise. If concentration of economy must be centralized it should
be planned to benefit the consumer not private enterprise,'' he said.
Liberal leader Don Lanskail was
con supporter. "Private enterprise
has given us the highest standard
of living in the world. Because the
system is not perfectly satisfying
does not mean we should try an
unexplored phase that has only
been used in its complete sense
in Russia," he argued.
"To take away the right to start
a business ls taking away one of
the rights of freedom," said Mr.
Lanskail. "Public ownership has
Its place, and is best for certain
enterprise but complete social
ownership is a killer of democracy,' he said.

Long Run Loss ?
As chairman of the student War Memorial. Gym Fund Committee, Bill Haggert has
oome up with a well-intentioned plan to bring
a<*$*ne revenue into his fund while saving students money on off-the-campus purchases.
On the surface, the plan looks profitable
both from his point of view and from that of
thf student body. A given merchant promises
fi ffeftaIn discount to students, part of whicli
they receive directly ln the form of a reduced
ptprehaae jpjtfcf' The rest they receive indirectly* Iti lift f^^ of a contribution \o the gym
' TJie merchant benefits, in theory at least,
from the Increased sales volume which the
fckerne would give him. '
In the short run, everybody gains. But
what about the long run?
It is extremely doubtful whether the
merchant operating under this scheme would
actually be making'sales among students who
would otherwise not buy the article of goods
St aim. More likely, the reduced price would
merely lure customers away from other mer-
That's the crux of the whole problem.
The scheme encourages some merchants to
enter into what may well constitute unfair
competition. It's not likely to start a price
war; it's more likely to jeopardize the business stability of merchants who feel they cannot slash prices at the present time.
This situation might easily build up a great
deal of resentment among Vancouver merchants not taking part in the scheme. Obviously, all merchants could not benefit from
the plan, even if they could all afford to. cut
prices, simply because the increase in business as a whole would be almost negligible.
These same merchants who have been left
out of the plan are amorig those we will he
asking for moral, if not financial, support of
our own gym project.
Perhaps if Mr. Haggert and his committee
reconsiderered the reduced-prices retail plan
they might agree that the little bit of revenue
they will obtain from it is far from worth
the ill-will they may earn from hundreds of
Vancouver businessmen.
Time For Some Interest
The. problem of the civil rights of Canadian Indians does not obsess most Canadians. It is difficult to start a rousing discus-
lion On this topic—the issue is rarely a controversial one. It remains, however, an important one, because it involves our basic de-
ntjocatic principles.
\. Almost nobody bears any malice towards
the Canadian Indians, and almost everybody
Isj anxious to see them receiving their full
tiare of citizens' rights and responsibilities.
|it it is seldom that any positive step is taken
toward this goal.
v; Of interest to all Canadians is the brief
which is soon to be submitted to Ottawa by
^e Vancouver branch of the Canadian Civil
liberties Union. The recommendations contained* in this brief add up to a workable
pifin for the gradual integration of the Indians as citizens in our society. This "gradual integration" has been the avowed aim of
our laws for some time—but it has been, in
practice, far too gradual. The methods outline^ in the CLU brief are planned to speed
up the process, and to make sure that step;;
are taken soon on behalf of the Indians.
Much credit is due to Professor HunLv
Lewis of UBC's English Department, who hcv*
been almost solely responsible for compiling
the brief. Much credit will reflect, too, upon
those who come forward and give active sup
port to his proposals.
Public support is essential if any sugges
tion submitted to the government is to meet
with success. And it is time—past time—that
we ceased to be lethargic about the lack^
in our democracy.
The campus branch of the Ci*il Liberties Union is prepared to support this brief,
since it deals with the rights of a minority
group in Canada. The campus UN club is
prepared to support it, since Canada has signed the universal declaration of hun§an right:.
And for reasons differently phrased but essentially similar, may other campus orgai-
zations should and probably will support it.
For these same reasons, the students a!
the University of British Columbia should,
and probably will, give the brief their activr
support.
And All That
The current furor over athletics seems, on
the surface, all well and good. This column,
though lethargic as always, remains staunchly in favor of lots of good rousing ballyhoo
and razzle-dazzle. It stands firm as the VCFV,
ffttth behind the thesis that a good all-round
athletic spirit is good for the campus.
But it retains the right to get a bit bewildered over the smoke-screen tossed up by
tfee Ostrom Plan and trifle disturbed over the
long-guns being opened up on down-town
Sport pages.
; ' If the down-town boys have their way,
UBC will find itself in sport as a business.
And the Ostrom. plan looks to us like a means
of, clearing the path for their whims.
Let's face it.
' This i.s a university. Its first function is
education and anything which detracts from
this function must be ruthlessly cut away
jUSt as anything which contributes to the furthering of the function must be fostered with
all the forces at our command.
Athletics are a sideline with only two
purposes: student entertainment and the
Whipping of campus spirit.
• The suggestion that football, for instance,
jfs a business and, as such, must be maintained
much the way the Brooklyn Dodgers maintain their baseball club, is sheer utter rot.
Football is a student activity like the production of plays or thrice-weekly newspapers.
If students want to play football, the means
should be placed at their disposal. If thoy
would rather play soccer or English rugby
or tiddly winks, then that's fine too.
If we get heaved from the Evergreen con •
ference then so what? There seems no shot'- -
by Les Armou
tago of opposition for the sports we indulge
in successfully enough. If we have nothing
that can fill the Empire Games Stadium that''
fine too, Build the stadium somewhere else.
Then there's the persistent squabbK
about athletic scholarships. As almost every
one knows, downtown boys are financing
half our basketball team and a third of our
football team right now. The scholarships an
under the table, but they're there all the same
Frankly  we don't like it.  But there'
no way to stop it—you can't pass laws agains'
handouts to students.
Nonetheless,    we    think    the    university
would be much better served if the interest;
concerned turned the money over to the uni
versity to be dispersed in scholarships as thc
university sees fit.
And we don't see why athletes shouk1
pet imy preference in scholarships. If thej
qualify scholastically, then they should ge'
them on the same terms as anyone else. I'
Ihey don't, the money should go to peopk
who- can get more out of education than the;
can.
Why should athletes he subsidized? Ha
anyone ever suggested that Mussoecers o;
Players Club stalwarts or old Pubsters should
get. handouts'? Why are athletics a superio:
form of student activity- Is sport so distaste
I'ul that we must now pay people to indulge
in it?
If somebody wanted to pass out studen;
activity scholarships open to people in all
walks of student life, the suggestion migh'
have some merit. Activities, after all, are
essential to university life. But why single
out athletics?
We>t Paint
By   ROLF  BLAK8TAD
The Brusberg paintings on display 'at, the University Art Gallery at first look to he visions
of an abstract slaughter house, bat
gradually they resolve Into fairly
ordered, patterns.'One of tbe most
interesting features in the paintings is the rich and unsual use of
textures; fat wrinkled blotches of
grey are pitted against thin, nervous dribbles- of red. The brush
strokes in the thick pigments take
on a grittiness beside the juicy
black enamel that shows up here
and there. Were the colprs not so
forbidding in Brusberg's pictures,
one would be tempted to eat the
paint off the canvas.
Almost all of the pictures are
dohe ln black and white, with the
odd dash of red. Hence most of the
pictures inherit an air ot intense-
ness and starkness. There are a
few of genMer spirit, however,
where the contrasts are held down,
and there ls one lovely effort done
in pale grey blues and tans.
There is really little that one
can say about Brusberg's paintings aside from describing them;
and description is a pretty useless
substitute for the real thing. Qo
and Bee the show for yourself and
stay long enough so that you can
get to enjoy it.   .,
LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR
MARDI ORA8 FUNDS
Editor, Tho Ubyssey.
Dear  Sir:
It was with a great shock that I
heard that this year's Mardi Oras
proceeds are going to the War
Memorial Gym. I fully appreciate
the Importance of the new gymnasium to the university, but at a
time when nioro worthy charities
are in desperate need of funds, it
would be the depths of selfishness
to give money to ourselves, not
withstanding the trite phrase"
"Charity begins at home."
I am not a Greek, but like many
other non-Greeks, have supported
these societies in their aid to worthy causes. Thus I feel that I have
a definite interest ln the eventual
allocation of these funds.
Since the Mardi Gras proceeds
amounting to as much as $4,500
have always gone to such charities
as Red Cross, Community Chest,
Salvation Army, etc., the people
who contribute this year will be
expecting a similar destination for
the monies, By pursuing a selfish,
narrow-minded policy in regards
to the distribution, the Creek Letter Societies would, in a sense, be
hoodwinking the public. I understand from certain people that this
Is not setting a dangerous precedent in that the policy is changed
every year In order that no one
charity may expect financial assisting as a right.
However, I say that it Is setting
a precendent In that it Is opening
the way for other campus groups
to request aid in future years. This
Is a shoe-in. We might eventually
iee the money being distributed
among campus political organizations or even directly Into AMS
coffers.
Yours for boniflde charities,
O. G. Stanison,
Arts '51.
Letters To The Editor
AN3WER8 EDITORIAL
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
i read with much interest your
editorial of October 27 entitled
"Lopsided Spending." In it you
point out that practically all of
the monies spent by the university
in recent years have been for the
sciences and applied sciences—Including the recent amount of $936,-
QOO for Biological Sciences and
nothing for the humanities or liberal arts.
Because a number of Individuals
—students, staff, alumni and public—have made similar comments
I feel-it may be useful to explain
university policy in this regard.
First, while a library serves all
departments and faculties, it is or
should be of greatest interest and
use to those in the humanities and
liberal arts. Books are to students
In these fields, what labs and
equipment are to the scientists.
The addition to our library cost
more than the building for the Biological Sciences— (by .presept costs
a* much again)— and la by long
odds the finest university library
building in Canada.
Second, apart from books, the
principal needs of those In the
humanities and the liberal arts are
classrooms, offices, seminar rooms,
etc. It has been easier to provide
for these In huts, than in the case
of  laboratories   for   science.   Pur- .
ther, the risk of loss from fire is
much less because the equipment
in them is not expensive. Scientific
equipment is very expensive.
Third, we have not forgotten
about "arts.'' The present plan for
further new buildings places a
classroom building about the top
of the list.
Finally, within the total area of
the humanities and the liberal arts,
whicli 1 consider form the heart or
centre of a university, I hope that
due consideration will be given
to the fine arts—music, painting,
drama, handicrafts and all the
rest. We have no buildings for
these and regrettably none in prospect. Perhaps a campaign to emphasize the importance ot these
in our university and in our society would be in order.
Respectfully,
Norman MacKenzie.    '

Report 'False'
TORONTO, Ont., — (CUP) -
Report by Bill turner, Canadian
I3R delegate to the IUS Congress
at Prague was "disgusting and
false," Alan Schwam, University
of Toronto student charged recently.
"Mr. Turner's statements have
been of the most disgusting kind,
mingling personal abuse with open
lies, and where these were insufficient with all kinds of distortions," he said.
Schwam has just returned from
a visit to Europe where lie spent
three and a half months this summer. He visited the IUS Congress
at Prague as an observer from the
World Federation of Democratic
Youth. He also visited Russia.
ROOM  FOR  OPINION
Schwam continued, "the IUS
made it clear that there was room
in IUS for divergent opinion, but
Turner made it clear that he
wasn't Interested In working with
IUS unless he could impose on its
five million membership his own
views and opinions."
He pointed out that Turner made
no effort to exchange views wllh
'eastern delegates, but concerned
himself with the British and Scandinavian delegations,
Schwam went on to say that
Russia ls not planning a third
world war and viewed the idea
with horror. We added, "It Is the
belief of the Soviet government
that the two rival economic systems can live In-peace. The Soviet
Union is In no way afraid of
peaceful competition with capitalism."
SCHWAM ATTACKED
Almost Immediately after these
statements by Schwam appeared
1n U of T's daily paper, The
Varsity, he was attacked by an
ISS student "J.P." through Letters
to the Editor, J.P. wrote, "If Mr.
Schwam had been able to exchange
opinions with the real students
and not only the Communistic representatives in Prague, lie would
know thut for a striking majority
of Czechoslovakia students, for example, such exchange is simply
impossible.
"He also would know the 'special'
orders concerning letters going to
foreign countries especially to the
West." He continued that most of
these students "do not wish such
an insincere exchange of views
which would ho permitted them
and which even so might bring
them . . . the accusation of being
'in relations with a Western power."
Foresters Leaders
In Blood Drive Here
Forestry students topped all
other faculties ln UBC's recent
bl6od drive by donating 400 pet-
cent of their quota. This was announced Wednesday when Red
Cross officials released figures to
The Ubyssey.
Nurses at UBC ran second to
foresters by donating 238 per cent
and they were followed by engineers who gave 111 per cent. Despite their early lead arts students
fell to fourth place hy donating
only *il per cent of their quota.
Trailing the field were physical
education students with 35 per

with seven per cent.

Sports Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
How much assistance must we
expect before we start to show our
appreciation   ln   return?

Thore are men in Vancouver who hie a team,- and failed to show for
are willing to give us the assistance
for a workable athletic plan, but
we refuse this aid because of our
antiquated opinions that sports are
detrimental to our scholastic standards.
I wonder how much the academic standards of Stanford or California have depreciated because
they have a controlled athletic
plan?
Here is an example of what men
ontside of the university are willing to do.
Prank Read is a man of tremendous character and personality.
The students of UBC should look
upon him as a tireless worker to
Improve the standard of sports
on the campus.
EXECUTIVE
He is an executive of one of the
manufacturing establishments ln
the city, a position which requires
a great deal of time and effort.
But somehow, he finds at least 20
hours a week to offer his much
needed and much appreciated time
to coaching the UBC crewmen
from the fall until late spring.
Not only does Frank give ills
time, but also the use of his motor
yacht, which runs into considerable expense during the year. For
all this, he doesn't expect any kind
of reimbursement except the enthusiasm he gets from his oarsmen by their faithful turnouts
every night.
Last spring, Frank gambled on a
long shot by sending his charges to
Southern California to battle the
Pacific Coast Conference colleges
in the game which they had proven
themselves as the world's best.
GAMBLE   PAYS   OFF
Each night he spent many long
hours coaching them collectively
In the shell, and many more hours
with them individually, quietly suggesting and needling them into a
mold which would favorably represent UBC among the colleges
who are most critical of newcomers.
His gamble did pay off, not In
the number of races won, but in
the enthusiastic welcome received
at each college visited. Today,
these colleges are requesting a
return visit next spring, with a
hope that the competition will continue each and every year.
But Frank has his eyes on the
future. To represent Canarlu in the
Olympics and the British Km pire
(lames is not an impossibility, and
with men like Frank Read af tiie
helm of our rowing organization,
the possibility becomes more than
probable.
BliUCE   CARVUS Assistant  Coach.
that reason," team manager said.
Bob Lindsay opened scoring tor
the 'Birds at the one minute mark
on a play set up by team captain
Clare Drake.
Ten   minutes   later,   Leek   and
I Schmltt of the Monarchs combined
to tie the game.
I Mae Carpenter gave UBC the
| lead late in the period with an
I unassisted tally.
J Second period started out vsry
fast as Kerries went all out to tie
it up. Their opportunity came at
the 4:40 mark when Beatty took
a pass out from Ramesdon for the
score. Goalie Don Adams never
even saw It.
Two minutes later, UBC was
again out in front by virtue of an
effort by Mac Carpenter assisted
by Al Hood. Ken Hole, on a one
man break-away, put the 'Birds
two in front.
Monarchs wasted no time getting
back into the game, and less than
a minute later, with Clare Drake
ln the sinbin for hooking, Leek and
McKenzie racked up the Monarchs
third and last counter.
With the period only five minutes old, Kerrisdale's Smith and
Richardson were given two, minutes apiece to consider the aspects
of cleaner living. Hole and Copland took this advantage to team
up for the   Birds fifth goal.
At 10:50, Young of the Thunderbirds roared In unassisted to fool
Kerry netminder Bruno Furland
and a mere 45 seconds later
Young set-up the final tally of the
game for Clare Drake.

Battle to 3-3 Tie
UBCs two entries in the Bell-
Irving Cup league, the Tomahawks
And Braves, buttled to a 3-3 tie
Tuesday at Varsity.
The first hair started out right
for the Braves when scrum-half
John Scott sneaked over the line
from a set scrum after a minute of
play, but from then on the two
teams see-sawed up and down the
field till the close of the half.
Second half play was far rougher than the comparatively dull first
period with the leaves continually
smashing up to the Hawks goal
line only to lose the bull on fumbles.
Willi three minutes to go the
entire Tomahawk scrum scored
that team's only try hy effectively
screening the ball from their op-
poneuts.
