Next time Jack Scott comes out of his
corner let's hope he has something in his
hands besides mud.
He i.s not making the "housecleaning"
any easier by dirtying the floor.
Strange is if may seem to Sun columnist
Scott, the fraternities and sororities on this
campus and others are making a sincere attempt lo remove discriminatory clauses from
their charters. It's a dii'ficuli job.
To change a local chapter charter, permission must he granted by the national executive of the fraternity at their annual conference. Every chapter of the fraternity i.s
represented at thc conference and each representative carries one vide.
Almost every convention of thc National
Interfraternity Council brings at least one
resolution for the elimination of restrictive
clauses and it is consistently blocked by fanatic southern colleges who want no "niggers"
in their groups.
This last few years an attempt has been
made to divide the United States and Canada
into districts with delegates from each district, representing all the fraternities in their
The movement gained momentum thi.s
year with the establishment of a Western
regional district, a Southern district and a
Central district. If these representatives can
break the southern bloc the discriminatory
clauses have an excellent chance of being
It would, of course, be impossible for this
type of convention to make any individual
charter amendments but theii' suggestion,
coupled with public opinion should force
recalcitrant nationals to amend their constitutions "or get out."
It's strange indeed that Mr, Scott can see
the "foam-flecked waters of the Gulf" .so well
on some days and can't see farther than the
end of his nose on others.

Walt Ewing, 'Accidental7 Treasurer
The will of UBC students may be served
in the acclamation of Walt Ewing as treasurer for 1949-50, he probably would have won
the job in an election anyway. But it is unfortunate to place a high officer of student
government in the weak position of holding
power with no real mandate from thc electorate. '. ' ' •
Ewing is in a Harry Truman-like position,
he is an "accidental" treasure!' placed there
by a handful of nominators and not by those
from whom he must expect co-operation next
As treasurer this year of the Men's Athletic Directorate he has the same background
as Paul Planl and undoubtedly will hold the
purse strings as effectively as his predecessor,
But his position can only be weakened by the
apathy which permitted him to slip almost
unnoticed into office.

chose Canada's ten best-dressed
women and Pat was mentioned in a
survey by fashion editors of leading
Canadian   magazines.
In an interview yesterday, Pat was
asked what she believed to be the
minimum wardrobe for the average
college girl. She believes that.a basic
.suit is essential, with several sweaters
and different skirts to change-about.
Pat told us that she thinks a wardrobe should blend in style and
colour. A.s for social affairs, at least
two good dressy dresses, which are
plain enough to accessorize, should
be sufficient. <Pnt herself prefers

Most important series of the
current Evergreen Conference
hoop loop comes off this weekend in the form of a home-and-
home series with the Vikings
of  Western  Washington.
A noon casaba fixture is the prime
feature of the series when the 'Birds
and Vikings tangle at noon today on
the  UBC  maples.
Doors to tire gym are scheduled
to open at 12:05, ducuts going at 35
cents each. Since a packed house is
very probable, the fans are asked to
get   in   line  early.
With very little actual effort, UB'C
students will be able to attend, and
it is rumored that if the Friday noon
tilt is a success, the 'Bird-Chieftain
game of next Friday will also be a
noon game.
"Long John" Forsyth will be on
hand for the 'Birds, and will be tlie
main tower of strength for the Pom-
frettnen as they try for a double win
this weekend,
The series is a crucial for both
clubs. A double win or the Vikings
would firmly leave them in fifth
place, while a double win for thu
'Birds would vault them out of a
three-way tie for tbe cellar.
All WINCO forward last year, Jerry Starr will be the big man of ihe
Viking line-up, playing his second
year wilh WWC. In the first eight
games, the fireball forward snaffled
109   points  for   the  Vikings.
A newcomer to the southern club
is six-foot Dick Ravenhorst, another
man on the Vikings with a good 11
points per game average,
But the 'Birds will also count heavily on the talents of "Big John" in I
tlie pivot spot, southpaw Jimmy McLean, who has been showing off
some torrid form these last weeks on
the road, and also fireball Reid Mitchell.
Since both of the teams playing
tomorrow have been about equally
rated, it should be a red hot tussle
from thc spectators' point of view.
Husztig, Marshall, Brodie Take
Firsts To Spark UBC Aggregation
UBC's swim team showed up very well Wednesday night
when the "B" squad battled  to a 51-51 tie with the YMCA
group. ■
Although the team possessed a
great many novices both men and
women, the group managed very
well in posting their narrow margin,
coming from behind to tie the meet
at   the YMCA  pool.
The Varsity squad had been confident of a win, but found they had
a fight on their hands when the "Y"
took an early lead.
Individual stars Pete Lusztig, Don
Marshall and Hall Brodie posted wins
in their events. The "Y" splashers
counted with seconds and thirds in
their events, however, which told the
talc when points were tallied.
For thc girls' team, such standouts
as Margaret Cross, Sheila Stewart
and Kdith Scott supplied lhe necessary
points to raise the UBC team to a
