First question on the referendum asked, "Are you In favor of
l'HC offering an exchange scholarship to USSR on a reciprocal
basis for one university year?"
National Federation of Canadian University Students (NFCUS)
voted against a Russian-Canadian
student exchange plan to be sponsored by the National organization
after Laval University threatened
to ltiiive NFCUS if it were passed.
Since that time other universities,
notably McGill, have attempted to
gain support for a scheme that
would bring Russian students to
Canadian campl on an exchange
Main opposition by Students*
Council to his scheme was because
It would allow >t> stay ot only about
three weeks on the campus of each
participating university and would
thus be more of a guided tour. It
wax felt that a greater understanding would be promoted by a regular
exchange scholarship which would
allow students to study for one
year on on.4,-campus.
This one-year exchange was the
plan approved by students yesterday. A majority of those voting
also answered in the affirmative
to the second question which read.
"If the offer were received favor
ably by the USSR and the ex
change could be arranged, would
yon consent to a levy of 20c if the
money could not be raised from
any other source?"

About Flyer
Ivan Feltham, on behalf -of
the Alma Mater Society, has
charged that the printing and
distribution of yesterday's one-
page flyer dealing with the
LSE-MAD budget controversy
was unconstitutional.
Discipline committee Is now In
charge of taking measures against
the group which produced the flyer.
Feltham said that the printing of
the flyer violated Bylaw 11? Section 3 of the AMS constitution,
which  reads:
"No publications or advertisements whatsoever shall be printed or displayed or distributed
and no member of the Seelefy
shall attempt to sell or dispose
of any publications or advertisements on the campus of the university without first having secured permission of the Students'

Problem Better Handled
By Fraternities - Underhill
Fraternities at UBC must take action to remove discriminatory clauses from their constitutions within the next year.
This was decided at the annual general meeting of the AMS
yesterday as a result of a motion put forward by Vaughan Lyon.
Lyon stated that these discriminatory clauses "deprive the people
concerned of their self-respect."
Dick Underhill, president of Phi
Delta Theta Fraternity and new
vice-president of the AMS, moved
that the motion be postponed and
to leave the problem up to the
fraternities. I'nderhill further
stated that most of the fraternities
on the campus were against the
discriminatory clauses, but were
having trouble getting their motions through the national chapters.
Mill Hutchinson, speaking ln favor of the motion, retorted that
unless pressure Is brought to bear
on local chapters, nothing will be
done on a national level.
Vaughdn Lyon, again in defence
of his motion, said that in order
to be sure of definite action we
should put a time limit on the deliberations of the fraternities.

after a turbulent debate at the
annual AMS general meeting
After Gerry Main, MAD president moved that the Ostrum Plan
be extended for another year, Johann Stoyva, new president of
LSE, moved that an amendment
that the MAD grant be reduced 4
percent on a sliding scale. The
object being to raise the grant to
LSE. Stoyva stated that with this
cut, the MAD budget would still be
at least three times that of the
LSE's. He further stated that "cob
trary to popular belief, the basketball court is not the heart of the
Gerry Duclos, AMS treasurer,
maintained that sports on this
campus were not over-emphaslxed,
and their grant should not be cut.
Art Phillips, referring to the
statement In the LSE's flyer that
MAD Is the university's "spoiled
child" maintained that the major
sports either break even or make a
profit which helps to pay for
minor sports. Phillips further stated that the "majority of the club

Letters To The Editor
Council Forgets
Students' Council forgot a few things at
yesterday's meeting:
The impressive looking, neatly-tied scrolls
presented to Honorary Activities Award winners at Thursday's General Meeting contained
the following typewritten message:
"Dear . . . .; we regret that the pins and
scrolls are not available at this time, but if
you wiH call at the AMS office later in the
term you may obtain them."
Apparently council had forgotten to make
th* pins and scrolls "available at this time",
and were forced to make presentations of
explanations instead.
Students who arrived at the meeting on
ttane were informed — after ten minutes —
that balloting was now being conducted at
the door on the Russian Student Exchange
question. ,
Council was supposed to have held the
Russian Exchange balloting along with the
third state elections but neglected to
have the ballots printed. There was no announcement that the balloting would be held
at yesterday's meeting. Council forgot to
mention it to anyone.
Miss Jane Banfield, AMS vice-president,
introduced—late in the meeting—a motion
that would limit speakers to two minutes on
the floor, and her motion was passed with
ease. But several of the following speakers
managed to spend much more than two minutes expressing their inner ideals and emotions, without any opposition from the chair.
It is unknown whether the motion was forgotten, or whether council had forgotten
They unfortunately forgot they were making one of their final appearances before the
students, and that they should attempt to
leave an impression of efficiency and competence before they left office.
Not Keeping Promises
Student body voted at yesterday's AMS
meeting to do something about solving the
annual battle between JUSE and MAD by
recommending a twenty-five cent fee increase
to be ear-marked expressly for LSE purpose's
Referendum which is necessary for all such
appropriations, even twenty-five cent ones,
must be passed by two-thirds majority of the
voting students under the AMS Constitution.
It would be a good thing for everyone concerned if tho referendum yot its majority.   If
Plugged Nickle
Here it is just three weeks before exams,
and some of you haven't even begun to think
about how to cheat your way through.
At present I'm spending my time on a shirt
cuff that spells out physics formulae when
you cry on it.
Now don't go away in a huff. Go in a
minute and a huff. I'm not going to suggest
that you actually CHEAT your way through
exams. I AM, however, going to give you a
few words of advice on how to ALMOST
cheat and still stay within the approving
scrutiny of the authorities and your frayed,
gullible old conscience.
The best way to almost cheat is to study
and then tell everybody you don't. Practically
everybody pulls this one. It hjas a double
effect—if you pass you can put it down to
sheer genius. If you fail, you can put it down
to lack of study.
You win either way.
The only dilticulty in this project is that
after a while you may even convince YOURSELF thai you don't study, and that you
passed last, year without, doing any work.
Then you really* stop studying. Next thing
you know you're water-boy at. Kttimal.
The "I don't study" form of almost cheating
is the oldest campus gimmick. It is really a
savage form of backstabhing by which everyone tells everyone else how little work they
do,'in the hope thai their friends will then
let up on THEIR work. Whal really happens?
Everyone rushes home and crams.
If you ARE going lo study, you will want
to make use of the facilities of the library. In
that, ease you must first deride where you
tire going to sit.
If you waul to discuss panties, rushing, and
sex, you s-huiilil head for the South-east wing'
II your conversation lends towards politics,
student government, ele.. you should sit in
tiie reference room, but not in the rear lel'l-
hand corner, which is reserved for discussions
on religion by the VCK If you are interested

it fails, through pettiness or apathy, the battle
between LSE and MAD will begin all over
Quite aside from the fact that the twenty-
five cent increase is the first one from which
LSE will have benefited in the last decade,
it ought to be worth a quarter to every student tp stop all this bickering by keeping a
' — T.F.
by franck
your H.Q.  and  if you want  to work, you
should pack up and go home.
Next to actually studying, the best method
of almost cheating is to memorize a large
number of general but obscure facts. If, for
example, you commit to memory during your
first year the fact that there are 245,000 gallons of sea-water in Burrard inlet, this should
almost see you through to a B.A.
You must, of course, work it with subtlety.
For English 201, for example:
"Hamlet's soliloquy demonstrated a turbulence of character not unlike the 245,000 gallons of sea-water in Burrard inlet on a stormy
Or for Biology 100:
"The Protozoa is not uncommon in the
245,000 gallons of sea-water in Burrard inlet."
Another method of almost cheating is to
read over a list of vital facts just before entering the exam room (or "death cell"). By
repeating these over to yourself on the way to
your desk, you will he able to remember
tiiem just long enough lo jot them down on
the inside corner of your exam paper for
future reference. This is only slightly different from carrying the list of facts in with
you, but it isn't ACTUALLY CHEATING.
Once you are in an oxam, yon should read
the paper. Some professor has gone to a
great deal of trouble copying it from last
year's paper, and it's the least you can do.
Once you have road it, decide which, or
how many (not more than two) questions you
can answer really well. It will take you about
one hour to write an exhaustive answer that
will establish you as a genius with the marker.
Towards the. end, deteriorate into a childish,
hurried looking scrawl and end up with "NO
MORE TIME"—written in blood, if possible.
Then hand in your paper and head down lo
Ihe (reorgia.
In conclusion, remember: ll Does Not Pay
To ('heat---especially when there are so many
easier ways.

Most Explosive Era
Editor, The   Uliyssey,
Dear  Sir:
Peter Lowes, In a recent edl-
lorinl regrets the chase after se-
ciirlty and safety among today's
younger people. The disappear-
•.nice of challenges and new frontiers have reBtilted ln a grey existence.
This century has produced the
two bloodiest wars erf history;
this century "has produced the
most vicious economic slump of
history. I Buggest this situation
presents plenty of challenges.
*J*he new frontiers are the solutions to war and poverty. These
t&m* are uncharted jungles,
beckoning the adventurer. To
crash them will require ideas and
courage. The twentieth century
pioneer Is attacking the concept
that man can come together qnly
in collision, like billiard balls. So-
, clul experiments are ahead cull
Img for daring experiment.
We ti eel Iving in the most fluid
and exploitive era of history. We'
have lost our freedom to commit
errors; we must particularly In
oar foreign behaviour, take the
right course the first time — or
else! This situation is challenging and colorful.
Low faculty Replies
Editor, The  Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
If 1 may be so permitted 1
would like to say a few words In
defence of the legal profession.
Your editorial, "Faculty Issues''
lias indicated among other things
that the "field of the lawyer Is
(rumbling under the Inroads of
tho trust company, the Insurance
adjuster, the tax accountant and
administrative boards. This is like
saying that the field of medicine
is crumbling under the in reads of
the surgeon, the gynecologist and
the   psychiatrist.
The author of "Faculty Issues"
goes on to hold the legal profession responsible for "the great
est inequities known to man"
which "have been perpetrated in
the name of Justice." This is unfortunately true in some respects.
For example: A sells a car to I!
agreeing to accept monthly payments. H upon receiving possession of tin1 car. soils it for cash
to C win thinks that I! is the
true owner. I! now leaves the
coiinlrv. II is obviously lnet|uil-
alile from ("s point of view lo al
low A lo seize the car. Il Is also
inequitable from A's point ol'
vie wto prohibit him from seizing the car. Justice in this case
has been rendered impossible by
the  human  imperfections of  Ii.
It must be readily discernible ot
Hie I hiiikiiO'; li.'Hi llml justice is.
like Iruth, an absolute and that
law can only approach the absolute to the extent lo which the
imperfections of the human race
will allow. The engineer who
builds a bridge from X to Y lias
within liis mind the conception
of a perfect bridge from X to Y
but the bridge which he will build
tan only he as perfect as th*
kmweldge of engineers as a
Whole can make it minus the Into the particular engineer. Should
,.we condemn engineers as a class
because the bridge is uot perfect?
Paper Misrepresents
Kditor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The report in today's Ubyssey
on the address which was de
llvered to the Student Christian
Movement yesterday; moon on Law
and Religion, contains some mis.
statements which, perhaps, ought
to be corrected. The fourth paragraph gives the impression that
it was stated that the university
is striving, o use Spinoza's words,
"after that which Is forbidden."
The full quotation from Spinoza,
a portion only of which was reprinted In the repoit) was used
to support the view that statutes
are effective only so long as they
conform to the general moral
feeling of society, lt was then
added: "In lesser vein, this university seems to be adopting a
policy that accords with Spinoza's view in paving walks where
students are determined to
The fifth paragraph reports
that it was stated that most of
the Ten Commandments are in
our law. Kach Commandment
was reviewed separately and in
result it was indicated that two
are law. four are not law, and
four are law in a restricted sense
The last sentence of the address was correctly quoted.

all practical purposes of study,
no English at all. The university
arranged courses In preparatory

the direction of Miss Margaret

in a ravorable position to understand the language difficulties of

All-powerful Duke of Connaught boomed out a resounding
67-3S victory over Creston Wednesday to move one step closer
to their third straight B.C. high School basketball championship.
The Duke's convincing victory was an omen of things to
come as over 3000 rabid fans witnessed smooth ball handling
and basketball wizardry in a game which highlighted the

Penn Says We'll
Have Pool Here
In spite of numerous protests fr,om Vancouver amateur
swimming clubs, UBC Athletic Director Dick Penn is convinced that the $300,000 British Empire Games Swimming pool
will be built at UBC.
Ironlcully enough there was a
considerably smaller group of fans
watching when Creston took to
the floor Thursday morning to
manufacture a »H-12 triumph over
Quesnel in the first game of the
Consolation series.
The Quesnel squad seemd unable to put the ball through the
hoop and as a result had the dubious honor of marking up the
rawest losing score posted in the
tourunment so far.
Les Burns, fiery Creston forward, paced his teammates with
36 points, to beat the record set
by ex-Duke of Connnught's Paul
Buday In 1051.
On Wednesday night the frantic
fans, the booming bands and the
colorful cheer leaders were* all
present to watch a vastly underrated Duke of Connaught squad
from New Westminster stamp
Ithemselves as outstanding contenders for this years' B.C. championship.
The over-awed Creston five were
unable to cope with.the fast breaking Dukes, as the winners exhibited tremendous speed and ability
that will take some beating.
Prince Rupert ran the legs of an
inexperienced Quesnel squad tc
Win 108-24 and shatter three records in the process.
Jerry Ford poped In 40 points
for the winners.
And Penn's opinion Is upheld by
BEG chairman Stan Smith who
announced Wednesday that ''the

Since the government ultimately

that the super pooh which will seat

"It's ridiculous," charged Percy
Norman, coach speaking for Vancouver amateur swimming clubs.
"It's not Talr for 180,000 Vancouver
children who can't get near water.
We didn't get a fair hearing."
Mr. Penn, on hearing about these
charges Thursday, stated, "I cam
see what all the fuss is about." The
pool will not be built outside the
city limits." Penn pondered a moment then snorted, "If they're going
to keep on bickering about sites
they might as well have the pool
In Toronto's Varsity Stadium."
Then, after another moment's
silence Penn growled fiercely, "and
you can quote tne."
During Wednesday's stormy pool
meeting, Charlie Rumball, Secretary of the Hastings Community
Association, voiced his protest of
the site. Mr. Rumball said he was
disappointed to hear the pool would
not be built in that district.
"However, we got the stadium,
so we're not too unhnnpy," he said.
Mr. Norman declared the UBC
site would render the pool "virtually useless" to the citizens of Van;
couver; that 13 lower mainland
