have had a Juke box installed so
that people can play background
music white they pray.
Now while I think this Is a good

Why limit it to >i Juke box? This

Why not hire Johnny Ray to give

In place ot a stodgy old hymn by

everyone fumbles through the
hymn book looking for number
488. During this period fw could

And why »not have the .Mills

I've got this problem nil solved

WHY NOT have n dance In the

sermon Is going on. Woody
Herman and his herd could provide the noise and while the racket
might conflict ylth Johnny Itay'i-
sermon- you could probably work
out an arrangement whereby John
ify could preach and cry In tunc
with Mr. Herman's music.
To attract passers-by Into the
church you could station Boy Rogers outntde on thc lawn. Roy could
do rope tricks and yodel while
Trigger did some simple little trick-
to amuse the crowd, like taking a

Or havo you thought of the pons

We've got drive-In movies, drive-in
banks, drlvc-ln groceterias, why
not a drive-In church?
People are getting used lo stay

Of course on baptism day everyone would have to drive convertibles but I am sure you can work
that out somehow.

A Plan Emasculated
When students elected Raghbir Basi president of the AMS last spring they did two
things, They chose the man they wished to
lead them during the coming year, and they -
endorsed the policies which he advocated.
In line with his responsibilities Basi presented a "plan of action" to his Council with
the hope that they would approve it. It was
to provide the base for the year's activities.
The plan incorporated most of tiie things
advocated by the councillors during their
campaigns and of course the President's platform.
* When Council got through tabling ike plan
three times, and then drastically amended it,
the result was that all the little pet projects
At It Again
Last fall we voted on a revision of the AMS
constitution, which the student body turned
down emphatically.
Now Students' Council has decided to try
•gain. This annual ritual of revisionism is
getting slightly tedious. There are only a few
relatively minor defects in the constitution as
it now stands and these could be cleared up
at the General Meeting of the AMS today.
One of these minor changes would be a
revision of the status of the political clubs,
which even Council has finally admitted
would be desirable. The other revision would
he tiie jettisoning of the two weak positions
on Students' Council, i.e., the positions of
Junior and Sophomore members. Because of
Fund Raisers
Joe Nold, chairman of UBC's Development
fund Committee, submitted a plan before
Students' Council recommending the hiring
of a firm of professional fund raisers to conduct a campaign for the AMS building program.
Nold pointed out that as a preliminary to
the proposed campaign the firm would have
to undertake a survey as to the feasibility of
such a project. The costs of this survey, running into a few thousand dollars, would have
to be bdrne by the AMS.
Quite apart from the fact that at the present
time the AMS cannot afford a few thousand
dollars for a meer survey, the plan also has
other evident drawbacks.
The appeal of an overall student building
program is too vague to draw many outside
dollars. If we are to undertake such a campaign we would have to have a specific project.   The War Memorial  Gymnasium has
A Good Budget
We have gone over the budget in a critical
frame oi mind. Nothing has been left unquestioned.
The conclusion that we have reached is
that Gerry Duclos has done a good job. The
budget is sensible and fair. Special Events
is the only activity that has been cut badly
to air his views, however far
fetched and misinformed they
may be. Twice, now, columns by
that well-known international
affairs authority, Prof. Gerry
Kidd, have graced tho editorial
pages of this papejv
In his latest mental wanderings, Mr. Kidd delivers himself
bravely ot the revelation that
Malenkov, Assistant Czar of Rub-
suia, is a "repulsive, corpulent

of various councillors were left intact, but
that the policies on which Basi won election
had been removed.
We do not think that Council should.be, so
irresponsible as to obstruct the implementation of the President's policies, when these
policies have been endorsed by tl>e student
body. To do so is obviously to deny students
the right to determine the kind of approach
they want their officials to take in solving
their problems.
The original plan of action submitted by
Basi is obviously superior to the emasculated
product that council has produced,. Let us
make sure that it is reinstated,

these changes.

the student body and the public have grown
apathetic to any appeal for more Gym funds.
If we only bothered to look around we
would find quite a few building projects
worthy of our attention, which would also
appeal to potential donors. We could, for
instance, raise funds for International House,
which has been with us for quite some time
now merely as a name of a committee.
It seems financially inadvisable to engage
professionals to run such a campaign but
there is no reason why we should not do just
as well on our own initiative. Our predecessors have tackled bigger projects than this

Editor, the Ubyssey.
Dear Sir,
I shall not waste time attempting to change the opinions of the
editorial writer who penned your
recent note on military training.
However, perhaps he may be reminded, no matter what his sentiments be, that Canada lvas military commitments because of her
membership In the UN.
These commitments are being
met because the government has
called for volunteers, and to
some degree this system has
answered, the need. If UBC students are among thole responding to the government's request
it is their own business and the
community's good fortune, for
while there are sufficient volunteers there will tie no compulsory military training.
These students should not be
barred from organizing on the
campus any more than should
groups, athletic or otherwise.
As for the writers' remarks
about u military man's ability to
think, lt Is obvious that he is
thumping a well-worn drum,
beating out the hollow boom of
glib cliches, end echoing his own
absence of knowledge of military
affairs.    JOHN   A.   FRASER,

In the hey days of Marie
("Why Don't They Eat More

gentlemen of the French court
used to amuse themselves hy or- .

Mind you, they d*d not tend any
sheep: they just armed themselves with shepherd's crooks
and sallied forth into tlio open
air, where a good time was had
by all.
The gentlemen composed
poetry extolling the beauty of
female eyes, and tlio ladies just
rerllned as be.nt they could in
their hoops and crinolines and
took care that their sighs of eo
stacy rent their low deeollotages

That, period, we are told by
historians, foretold the doom of
the French monarchy. The genteel shepherds and shepherdesses were swept away.

of society just higher than his

simplicity. Elegance was the

monkey suits in business.
However, today we detect a
dangerous trend foreboding the
fall of our civilization. Society
has again returned to tho pursuits  of  psoudo-rustic  pleasures.

that we could not check immediately what the impropriate costume for u modern shepherdess

been assured by authorities on

Dutch ISS Seminar
Described By Co-ed
The inoffensive manner and
quiet dignity of Igor Stravinsky
were in keeping with his reputation as one of this century's great
composers. He conducted almost
indifferently, often directing with
a slight movement of his right
hand while his left rested casually
on his hip.
Stravinsky conducted the orchestra In four of his own works:
Scherio a la Russe, Circus Polka,
Divertimento and the Firebird
Suite. The listener's attention was
shifted from the strings to the
woodwinds In all his music, and he
utilised the s- o woodwind as «
very effective means of expression. A strikingly beautiful effect
was achieved in Divertimento by
means, ot a duet for clarinet and
cello. The music, particularly the
Ffreblrd Suite, was notable, for
swift and sudden changes ln mood
•nd pace. This work adds bass
clarinet, harp, celeste, and piano
to tbe regular orchestra.
Stravinsky was given sustained
applause and a standing ovation
at Sunday's concert (in addition
to keys to the city); however, this
quote of conductor Pierre Monteux
illustrates the audience reaction
to him was not always favorable.
"The audience remained quiet
for the first two minutes. Then
oame boos and catcalls . . . Neighbors began to hit each other oven
the head wlt\i fists, canes or whatever came to hand . . . Everything
available was tossed in our direction, but we continued to play on
... Stravinsky had disappeared
through a window backstage, to
wander disconsolately through the
streets of Paris."
On his return to Paris thirty-nine
years later, Stravinsky found that
public acclaim had swung In his
direction, for he was given a recaption so enthusiastic that it can
only be described ae bedlam.
This man J»s.no»»*»f the lesser

Frank Lewis, U'HC law graduate
who ran against H».«oid Winch In ^
tbe June election, .stated a* the
Friday meeting of tho Liberal Club,
that he regards the campus organization as the Intellectual spearhead af the party.
Lewis declared at recent party
conventions ex-campus Liberals
had contributed the lion's share of
reform resolutions The speaker
cited the case of, Don banskalk who
as early as 1949 had attacked the
coalition on the grounds that it
made the party app'ar to be 6a
Instrument of reaction. Lewis emphasised the role of tne campus ln
reviving the vitality of the' provincial Liberals.
"There is nothing dynamic about
the middle-of-the-road," maintained
the speaker. Lewis declared that
the Liberals stood to the left of
center. This stand lie considered
necessary because of the swelling
Industrial population of B.C. To
regain power the party must win
support from the workers.
Lewis pointed out that the road
to reeovery would not lie easy. He
stated that the electorate had
gleaned house for tne Liberals.
Consequently It would lie difficult
to bring public suppo^. buck to the
party again. The new platform, ho
insisted, must endorse specific programs for social reform., The party
should be something more than
just an anti-socialist organization.
The speaker castigated some uf the
old-line Liberals of the province
whose attitude to the people toad
been "Wither you'll nave us or
you'll huve worse."
Lewis filially emphasized the
danger of letting the Socreds or
Mm CCF become securely entrenched in B.C. Kor the party to
remain a force to Oh reckoned
wllh, it must seize- the initiative
liuined lately.
AMS President
Addresses CM
A large turnout of International
ly-minded students heard AMS
President Ragiiblr Basi deliver the
welcoming address to the United
Nation's, Club last Friday.
Basi, who headed the club last
year, stressed that to achieve
world peace our energies must be
turned to constructive other than
destructive forces. Although newspapers glorify conflicts, other aspects of the UN must be presented
to students.
"We don't need to be protagonists of the UN," Basl declared, "but
we should discuss what we think
the United Nations Assembly
should be doing.''
Heading the list of rail activities,
the Model Oeneral Assembly, which
Is organized by the students, will
be presented in Brock Hall on
October 24th, the seventh anniversary of the foundation of the
United  Nations Organization.
Commencing at noon with a flag-
raising ceremony, during which the
United Nations Flag will he raised,
the program should stimulate student interest in International affairs.

Int'l House To
Become Reality
Certain things belong merely to
the realm of thought. UBC International House has been in the
same category so far.
We have an International House
Committee on the Campus working
for the construction of a house
promoting International understanding. This committee has been
functioning very successfully on
the campus for the last two years.
lt has made the Idea oflnter-
natlonal House popular through
its program of International dinners, extension of hospitality to
foreign students, and Canadian
Orientation series designed to acquaint the students, and the publL:
iu general, with Canadian culture
and economic and political background.
Yet the location of the International House remained a mystery.
This mystery is at last going to

ALL YOU faithful football
followers (hoping my
English prof, notices that alliteration) who have any hopes
of repeating that glorious afternoon last fall when the stadium
goalposts went thc way of all
kindling should turn up at the
armouries at noon today.
It anyone Is still with me after
that stupendous opening paragraph
you may enroll in the Philosophy
department's logic course.
What I'm trying to pound into
your pointed Utile heads is thai
the Birds are destined to die a
Blow death next year with the
fBC Senate at present busy preparing the coffin and the tombstone.
If you will teai; your ayes away
fro* this deathless prose tor a
moment you will notice a story
elsewhere on this page which ex
plahis the Senate's recent ruling
nbout dear little Frosh who weigh
815 pounds and stand 8 '&»•* 4
inches iu their pinkies and who also lug. footballs through opposition
lines on Saturday afternoons In
stead of sipping milkshakes or
golng  to  the  cowboy  pictures  at
the local cinema.
SEEMS that the Senate feel*
that our freshmen would be
better oft to stick to the milkshakes and range rustlers. Some
people have come forth with tht
suggestion that the 'Senate feel*
sorry for Frosh who get their features scrambled and their carcasses ground Into the stadium
grass every weekend but then
again there are those who contend
that members of the Senate -are
frustrated grass hockey players
who are just relieving their neurosis* on innocent Uttle freshmen.
Whatever the reason ls, unless
something is done about the new
ruling the Thunderbtras will be
entering the South Burnaby CMrl
Guides Mushball League next year.
Although there is no truth to the
rumor that Jelly Andersen has
dratted the whole UBC female
grass hockey team for his back-
held lt may become a possibility
In a tew years If husky, healthy,
red-blooded, numb-skulled tresh
men are barred from participating

they cherish, the game they are
willing to die for if necessary-

SO TODAY at noon-hour we
hope to see all UBC students

death" and voting for the MAD

Eventually the team will be de
voloped to a stage where beardler s
freshmen won't be able tp stick

MAD Will Beef On
Freshman Ruling
Senate Too
Strict On
MAD will introduce a motion at the AMS meeting today
asking the Seriate to reconsider
their ruling which bars freshmen from varsity sports.
Students who remember the
battle over the athletic budget
during last spring's AMS dog fight
will no doubt be looking forward
to another 'squabble over the proposed motion which will be put
on the floor by the Men's Athletic
During the summer the UBC
Senate upproved the report of the
Senate Committee on athletics
which recommended that any students must attend UBC tor one
full winter session before being
allowed to participate In Varsity
This ruling will go Into effect
for the session 19.".3-54. Tne Com
mlttee also recommended that no
student be allowed to play varsity
sport unless he or she has com
pleted a* least 12 units tn the previous session.
The Committee put the final
squash on any hope for an athletic
self-help program When they stiffly recommended that the Senate
"not -approve of the establishment
of athletic scholarships (I.e. awards-
provided primarily to subsidize
athletes for the purpose of obtain
Ing their services ln extramural o;
IntercoUeglate athletic eompetl
The MAD motion will ask the
Senate to either grant an extension on the fresiiman ruling for
another year or two or drop It entirely.
As It stands now the ruling
means that next year no freshmen
no matter how, outstanding, wlii
be allowed to participate on a
Thunderbird team. Freshmen may
play on a university "second"
team, such as the Jayvee basket
ball and football squads or the
Chief rugby team.
The ruling also means that any
student transferring to UBC from
another university must complete
a year here before he can turn out
for  a   varsijty  sport.
The MAD will'ask the student
body ut the AMS meeting to approve an amendment to this ruling,
postponing the enforcement of the
freshman rule as UBC basketball
and football teams are ln a "building up" stage at the present. Enforcement of ther uie next year
would practically derail Jelly And
ersen's plan for a potential Evergreen Conference contender ln a
few years.
Following is a copy of the
report of the Senate Committee on policy with respect to
Competitive and Inter-Collegiate Athletics, which was
approved by Senate, on May
13th, 1952.
1 Tiie committee recommend*
the -adoption by Senate of the following regulations to govern ellgl

Frederickson "There are a few
rather Interesting possibilities, a
lot of terrific competition for epots
on the team. In spite Of the fact
that the material may not be of
as high a quality as that of lust,

can make up for lt in pep, punch

During the intlal workout, there
were ten carry-overs and twenty

Noticed In a little blurb below that coach "Claire Bee" Pomfret
has sent out the call for all basketball players'In the university to come
out and try to win a spot on the illustrious Thunderbird basketball
team.   It's about time.
After the sensational season of almost consecutive defeats last
year poor Jack is going to need tho help of every freshman b'baller
and a few juniors and seniors along with those boys UiP from the intramurals to make up any kind of a team at all.
Let's hope that the clubs this season are picked with a little more
care than last season's try-out fiasco.
We could name more than one ball player on the campus last year
who was lost In the milling crowd of one hundred and fifty that surged
onto the aching floor o* the gym, resplendid In Iloniesvllle All<Star and
Okanagan Pirates strip, but just one example will suffice.
We mean Ed Chllde, a center with the University of Manitoba
"Bisons'' when they were Western Intercollegiate Champions. Ed, pore
soul, bravely answered the call for material but ln the confusion caused
by the obvious exhibitionism of the Wg wheel locals wus completely
overlooked by mlxed-up mentors Pomfret and Penn, and quit ln disgust
the third day.
No repeats, please, Jack.
