STUDENT FEE INCREASE FIGHT
Money Needed
Heated discussion follows A.M.S.  President's proposal.
The   most   heated   discussions •
at the Leadership Conference revolved around AMS President
Ben Trevino's proposal tor a
referendum which would allow
students to vote a $5.00 fee increase for the next three years.
The money would be matched
by the Provincial government
if it came within the campaign
period. A student contribution
of $150,000 would therefore become a contribution of $300,000.
Over the next ten years, the
University expects the following revenue for new buildings:
• $5,000,000 from thc Federal
government through the
Canada Council.
• $10,000,000 from the Provincial Government on a $L-
000,000 per year basis.
• $5,000,000 from the Provincial Government on a matching basis.
• $5,000,000 from the UBC
Development Committee
which was formed to raise
the $5,000,000 which the
Provincial Government offered on a matching basis.
University officials estimate
the total need over the next ten
years as $60,000,000. Student
action last year resulted in the
offer of only an additional
$5,000,000 on a matching basis.
A student request for a more
rapid release of the $10,000,000
was ignored.
Trevino commented on the
proposal he presented to delegates at the Leadership Conference:
"It is very true that the students of UBC have given more
for their University than any
other student body. It is also
obviously true that students are
not and should not be responsible for building University
buildings. However, the Great
Trek tradition has evolved and
carried on because the groups
responsible for providing  funds
Up To Government '^^« <=!«■,«
"The UBC Development Fund
Committee, which has been set
up to raise the $5,000,000 to take
advantage of Premier Bennett's
offer of a similar matching
grant, asked mc in what way I
thought UP.C students might
contribute to the fund. Since
Faculty, Alumni and parents
are also being asked to contribute, I thought that students
would want to make their contribution felt by contributing on
bloc, continuing and strengthening the Trek tradition wc are so
justifiably proud of.
'We who are closest to the
problem, who can see the difference between existing facilities and enrollment, should be
the first group to give whatever
we can. A fee increase of $5.00
per student for three yean (this
is the period for which pledge's
arc being asked from1 individuals, businesses, corporations,
faculty arjd alumni) would
amount to $150,000. When this
>s matched by the government,
it becomes a very substantial
figure. Our contribution would
be magnified and compounded
if we could' be the first, and
show the rest of the province
that we who see the problems
best can and will lead the way.
A further point is that money
given by the students and earmarked for Residences is likely
to draw more donations earmarked for residences."
Mr. Trevino emphasized that
all the money need not be allocated to residences unless that
was the wish of the students.
The money could be allocated in
any way the students desire.
Trevino feels that this is simply
the most pressing need on the j the donation radically simple. ■ was completely unjustified and

Premier Bennett should give UBC a large enough grant
so students will not have to dig into their own pockets, to pay
for the needed buildings.
This was the stand Monday
night of Provincial Conservative
Leader, Deane Finlayson, when
questioned by a UBC reporter as
to his opinion of the proposed
increase in Alma Mater Society
fees, in an attempt lo spark the
building campaign.
'Primary responsibility for
the raising of money increased
housing, rests on the Government of British Columbia, and
it thould be the University's
sole duty to impress this upon
them," he said.
Although Mr. Finlayson was
in disagreement, he extended
his   personal   commendation   to
matched   by   a   grant   from   the
Government.
Premier Bennett made the
fund-matching proposal at the
conclusion of a province-wide
student trek last term.
Robert   Strachan,   leader   of
Her Majesty's opposition in Victoria,   states  that,   "If  the   stu-'
dents are willing to support this
scheme  I  can  not see  how  the i
government could possibly raise '
any critical objection to the proposal." !
Mr.  Strachan added that,  "If!
once again    the    students  will
agree   to   help   themselves   by j
the entire student body for their   paying for 50r'>   of the project,

Last weekend's Leadership
Conference proposed a remedy
for the critical housing shortage,
which would follow in the same
footsteps as the fund-raising cam-
the government most likely will
gladly agree, seeing as they only
have a 50"' balance to put up.
After all (to the students point
of view) having to pay for 50%
is better than no housing."
In opposition to the opinions

suspected it the same way we suspected the
exhortation to "leadership" that appeared
on a fraternity rushing poster two weeks
back.
And, we fear there are a number of
others on the campus just as suspicious. As
students, they are skeptical of false enthusiasm, of the keenness that exerts itself in meaningless resolutions and a fascination for names.
Pleasantly, we discovered, that our
suspicions were wrong. Those at the conference were leaders in fact, and except
for the banner flying in front of the conference hall, never referred to themselves as leaders in name.
Had they not been leaders in fact, had
the conference not been such a success,
this editorial would never have been written. What would have filled this space were
the usual congratulations that any editor
writes with his eyes closed.
But we were impressed, and we wish
the student body to be impressed.
We think they would be more impressed if their suspicions were allayed with
a  less pretentious  name.
Those who participated in the conference can afford to be humble.

Committee, knocks on your door and asks
for your financial support, you don't ask
yourself the question, "Do I owe duty to
give money to them, but rather "Am I willing to give to them." If you think the need
is great enough you'll give, if not, you
won't. Don't get me wrong, I am not suggesting that someone i.s knocking on your
door and asking for you to give, but are
we willing to give when we are so aware
of the need. So let's forget the idea of duty
and  responsibility.
There are students on this campus
who just can't afford to pay $5.00 more in
fees, yet will give up certain things to
contribute to the fund which they may feel
is well worth the sacrafice. A student may
be willing to give up an extra sandwich
once in a while, or a night at the Commodore, or even forget about buying a
bottle of whiskey for some week-end. And
if he is, then let him contribute in the
form of a $5.00 fee increase (of course the
argument will be raised that if only 7000
students are willing to give $5.00 and 1500
are not, then this group is forced to r;ive.)
So it is up to the people who believe in
it to convince the rest that the need of the
success oi the campaign is great, so they
will be willing to give. Personally, I'm willing to give the $5.00, not because I owe duty
or have a responsibility, but because I feel
as an individual that the need is great
enough   to   warrant   it.

HITHER AND YAWN
Star's Sordid
Tale Is Told
The Ubyssey proudly presents Barry Dianamore's sordid story of personal degradation and despair "Lush me or
Leave Mo." It is poignantly
written by Mr, Dlanamore with
assistance from Lillian Roth,
Mickey Hartigay who hopes to
snare the film role, and Spider
Fandango, 1924 Golden Gloves
light-heavy and financial adviser to Mr. Dianamore during
early October, 1929.
This story cries out to thousands who seek answers to
suoh questions as — is money
more than just legal tender?
Does living with horses mean
a stable family? Does preying
help? And who did kill Cock
Robin? But now, on with Mr.
Dianamore's wretched tale.
"I blinked my eyes open.
Somebody was staggering
across the dingy bedroom,
dodging empty Vitalis bottles
as he went. Suddenly I realized who it was — it was me.
I punched a couple of chartreuse elephants in the belly
as I lurched into the dingy
bathroom. I swept the empty
shoe polish cans from the
dingy wash basin and fell in
hoping to slip unnoticed down
the dingy drain. Gosh, I felt

but stopped quickly realizing
that quoting Mummy's poetry
just wasn't going to help this
morning. I looked again. "Am
I," I said to myself, "Am I a
drunken, no - good, broken-
down, washed-out has-been at
14?" Aaah, who would believe
me anyway but Magistrate
Beavor-Potts.
So I wrung a final glass of
canned heat out of the bath
towel, sat down on the bed
and began thinking. This was
difficult because Mummy always said that we Dianamores
never did any thinking — we
just emoted.
I stared at the empty glass.
I couldn't go on boozing (or
"drinking" as Mummy always
called it) at this rate and still
have any honor, dignity, decency and money left. It was
then I resolved to write MY
STORY so that I could show
how unkind the gods are and
give the ordinary folk a chance
to look into MY WORLD. And
anyway, including book-of-the-
montih, Reader's Digest, film,
television    and   comic   books
.its it would mean enough
utoney for three weeks liquor.
I would tell them about
Mummy and Daddy and Daddy
and Daddy and Daddy (Mum
my  got married  quite  often)
And how the name Diana-
more became a household
word in North America. That
was because Grandad's first
name was John. And how 1
went to private school when
I was 9 months old because
Mummy couldn't stand me
when 11 was teething. And I'd
tell them about the famous
people who passed through our
home. Sure it was crowded in
the lobby of Grand Central
Station but it was close to
Irvings Bar and Grill. I'll tell
them about the Windsors (Joe
and Lavinia), the Vanderbilts
(Ivan and Olga), Schaparelli
(Herb)   and    Maxwell    (Elsa).
I'll always remerrtber Elsa
Maxwell, she had the same
name as that famous old heap.
You know, the Maxwell car.
And then I'll tell them about
the boring times we had in Rio
and Acapulco and Madrid and
. . . Gosh, I'd better get Mickey
Hartigay fitted up for that
sailor suit we'll use in the
opening scene.
Letters to the Editor
Plea?
Editor, Thc Ubyssey,
It is my solemnly dread
pleasure to be ensconsed in
your country which; it is my
intensely deep feeling, truly a
place coloquially whiskers of
the cat! The manifold hospitality; the many facilities for
the esteemed populace, the
cleanliness of which it is my
humble joy;  is  that  my  wish
which it would be impossible
to quell, my remotest instincts
are arisen by your scenery of
mountains which my greater
steem. which; than sir, it
would be my powers of expression inside the space of this
brief epistle to dwell?
But sirs, though your manifold kindness and or your
bountiful goodness which it
'would be beyond the power to
exceed; I am horrently saddened by the one thing which the
lack of is so great a severity to
one who is cut off from hearths
and homeland. It is my wish
to be expressed whether or no
my sadness could be mitigated
through your esteemed facilities, and if perchance my longings might be considered as
genuinely, as you must as some
times have these 'things deep
within.
It is my constant sickness to
hear the notes of music of paternal hearth, which will once
mere evoke unto me the sound
of the sharaijs, of early morn
yet of the ^comparability of
the suttras at even-tide of
which I am so plaintively at
present without. No greater
erection of my spiritualism
comes ever* beyond these in
the notes of the 'al-quaittakh,
no wilder flailings of the khaw-
jorais, than no mournful funeral music of the suttee can at
present be stirred.
My sir, most gratuitous plea
is for some of the strains of my
natal music of which I am so
dear.
I,  Sirs!,  again   remain  with
inveritably    true    obsequiousness, yours contumeliously,
Sayyid Ziya'Al-Dan Tabatabai,
An Afghanistan!
Please?
Editor, The Ubyssey,
I think it is absolutely revolting Inning to wait in the
library for half an hour for one
book I know Unit they have
changed   things   around   a   lot
this year, but surely they can
speed their services up!
We students only have a
limited amount of time to do
our assignments and unless the
library can smarten up, something drastic will have to be
done!
MARJORIE PAUL,

Pleasing?
Editor, The Ubyssey:
In reply to A. C. James' letter proposing that we Engineers change "our'' red to the
"traditional" Elizabethan putrid pink orange, it is only proper that wc reject the "scintil-
ating" offer for many reasons.
Without delving into the
works of Freud or using Darwin's works on the color of the
male animal, we can safely say
that "our" red is a symbol of
virility or sexual potency. This
the "traditional" red lacks. In
other words, "our" red is a
symbol of life itself ... it is a
red which the Macbeths tried
to wash their hands of but never did.
And this brings up the questions, why must critics and
artists be so slow in accepting
something new, why must we
revert to an older order?
Surely we must use the "colours" of our times. For instance, I can see and feel the
beauty in the works of Beethoven or Bach, but I can see
even more beauty in modern
jazz. It is the music of < our
times and we should try to understand it.
Surely, if Engineers studied
only the works of Galileo we
would live in a scientifically
frustrated world. In essence,
I am saying that the auditorium should be painted colours
which suit our age and thinking and not be influenced by
people pseudo - intellectually
imbued in the works of Shakespeare or Elizabethan theatre.
To all "back seat drivers" of
the intellectual school may 1
point out a line which I found
in Dante's "Paradise":
"E lascia pur grattar dov'e
la rogna!"
—or  in   modern  translation:
"Let   them    go    ahead    and
scratch where it itches."
One could even use this for a
philosophy of life, at least, 1
have,

Disillusioned
Editor, The Ubyssey:
How smug can we be, how
superior to our American cousins. And how we enjoy decrying their materialism, their
lack of interest in the "important things of life," their concern for "getting ahead," succeeding financially and socially, particularly their desire for
conformity!
So much of this is such obvious projection (see Psychology 100, second term) that it
needs no comment. But the
publication of the enrolment
in UBC's political clubs shows
a desire for conformity among
UBC students that is frightening.
Look at the figures: Procons,
up to 125; Liberals down from
120 to 80; Socreds down from
60 to 51!
Even if we discount the obvious opportunists, even if we
omit the "off again, on again,
gone again" Tories who skip
from Procon to Socred to Pro-
eon with each shift of the political wind, we are still left
with, a large percentage who
seem to join a political club
not on the basis of philosophy
or even program, but on the
basis of current popular opinion shown by recent election
results.
Of course some of us have
thought that the membership
rolls of the Socred Club seemed strangely inflated (no pun
intended), incongruously so
among the people one expects
to find associated with a centre
of learning. But no matter.
This is not unacceptable behaviour from those still in thc
adolescent stage (whether they
display their adolescence
through devotion to some
empty-headed rock - and - roll
artist or wacky political leaders, or travel our madequate
B.C. highways at hazardous
speeds.
If these adolescents are sincere,   if  they     really     believe
they  have    the    answers that
will solve all the world's problems, let them have their fun.
We should expect and welcome
rebels her:?, even rebels against j
common sense.    Basic  courses j
in economics and in logic will!
come soon  enough   to  prevent
any long term effect. i
What we have to worry
about is the number of conformists amongst us. It's disillusioning to find so many so
early in life!

THE    UBYSSEY
Fall   Leadership   Conference   Debates
UBYSSEY LISTENS
Editor's Note:—This is the first article in a series covering
the various topics discussed at ihe Leadership Conference. Other
articles, to be written by those who either conducted the group
or felt most strongly about its problem, will follow.
BY KEN LAMB
Ubyssey Associate Editor
We  went  into  the   fray  against   two   professors   and   40
students with the attitude that the Ubyssey had earned considerable unfavorable criticism, and could profit by listening
Mo it. '
We weren't disappointed. We
got the criticism. This is it,
printed with .what we feel is
justified defence.
The   attacks  centred  on  two
articles published this year. The
• first was  the "Ruth  X"  story,
telling the tale of a girl asked
to leave a cafeteria table norm-
** ally taken up by a fraternity.
»     We found that some thought
as we had: that it was written
in  a   style   too  sensational   for
a   university   newspaper.   Some
had treated the story first as a
joke,  others,   particularly  those
i associated  with  a  Greek  letter
society,  as an outright  lie.
The first criticism is ultimately only one of opinion. The sec-
»ond, we have found on interviewing the author, Ubyssey
News Editor Al Forrest, is unfortunate in that the story is
true.
There was a Ruth, there were
tears, there was a torn textbook,
and there were witnesses.
We hope to bring the matter
;to a more responsible conclusion
ithin a few weeks.
The second particular attack
arose from a suspicion that the
Ubyssey was permitting a communist, Jim McFarlan, to use
the Ubyssey to print slanted
news and the "party line."
It was suggested that McFarlan worked for the Ubyssey, as
a reporter, and was given free
^rein to say what he felt.
|P We agreed that he could say
what he felt, as long as it was
legally defendable, but only as
any other student or professor
can say what he likes, in a
signed article, on the editorial
page.
This is precisely the form in

which McFarlan's attack on the
Greeks appeared.
The Ubyssey was criticised
by two professors, Stan Read,
and Malcolm McGregor, for
careless proof-reading and too
much stress on the part of thc
editors to imitate a downtown
newspaper.
We listened with interest to
these comments, for both professors in their student days
were intimate with the production of campus papers.
The first criticism was accepted wholeheartedly, because we
hold wakes after every issue.
The second was considered more
difficult to determine, but speaking nebulously, we assured them
efforts had been made to make
the Ubyssey as close to the ideal
of campus paper as possible.
Both professors ended the discussion with praise for the overall production of the Ubyssey,
and felt that it was endeavoring
to raise its standards.
We were rapped repeatedly
for the attitude, in print at least,
that the Ubyssey was one wild
bachanal, and that its members
were the juvenile delinquent
answer to Bohemians.
We had no defence for this,
except to say our public rela<
tion are lousy, and promised to
d« as much as possible to disprove such allegations. Which
means, to those of the student
body who have been afraid, disgusted, or in any way doubtful of joining the Pub, that we
are friendly, legitimate, sober
none too creative ourselves and
only too glad to have any of you
drop around.
We complained that too much
of the criticism was due to careless reading, and an unwillingness to think: and that if the
Ubyssey was a failure, which
we don't admit, that it is ultimately the result of the student
body tnat will not make a personal effort to improve it.
The criticism actually consumed most of an hour, but
much of it wa.s repeated attacks on the same weaknesses.
At any rate, we admit much of
it was deserved, and if some one
is willing to admit we usually
do an adequate job, we're willing to try to do a better one.
Students, Faculty Discuss
Here are some of the major opinions expressed by a
majority of the one hundred and thirty students and professors attending the third annual leadership conference.
Complete resumes of the con- •
ference will follow in later edi
tions.
FEES
While they would never request it, students felt an increase
in tuition fees would be reasonable.
They felt increasing admim
istration costs, and improvements in the salary position of
professors, leading to better
teaching, warranted such an increase.
Of the majority for tiie increase,   most   felt   the   the   fees
should be raised as much as
$50, should the Board of Governors find it reasonable. The
plan for a five dollar fee increase to be used for residences
was received with general ap
proval.
A small increase would only
be annoying without filling the
need, they said.
It was pointed out that UBC
ranks well down on the Canadian fee scale.
ATHLETICS
,   Athletics  came  under  discus
sion in all groups, and most of
the arguments were violent.
While the conference was split
downithe middle on the question
of athletic scholarships, all were
in favor of a Western Canadian
League, and ii it was created, an
increase in the present athletic
fee of $4.20.
The majority was against participation with American school*,
on grounds that UBC could
never compete favorably against
"paid athletes" while the administration was opposed to
athletic  scholarships.
All deplored the present failure of the Thunderbird football
team, but felt that the coach
and players were doing the best

Here  Are  The   Questions
Forum Gone
Union Arises
Parliamentary Forum is officially  extinct.
Emerging in place of the defunct political-debating society
is the Debating Union, under
president Graham Mosely, and
thc Parliamentary C o u n c i 1,
headed by Jack Giles.
Responsible for political functions and debates, Parliamentary
Council will be headed by Giles
and presidents of the campus's
six   recognized   political   parties.
Highlight of the year, which
includes a proposed exchange
with students of Washington
State College, is the Mock Parliament elections, to be held
October  24.
HIGHER LEVEL
Should the university provide
its own entrance examinations,
on a higher level than present
high school exams?
How much should a campus
club be subsidized? On a membership basis? By the amount
of its direct contribution to the
university as a whole'.'
What was the student role in
university construction'.' Are
we to help pay for housing, if
we do, will the government feel,
unjustly, that it can depend on
students to contribute, and have
we done too much already?
FORCED TO RESIGN?
Should club executive members be forced, in accordance
with the AMS bylaw, to resign
if they do not pass Christmas
exams? Members admitted the
rule was now largely ignored,
but suggested perhaps the rule
should be dropped from the
AMS  constitution.
Is it worthwhile for clubs to
get together to combat common
problems'.' Would the result be
efficiency or added confusion?
ORGANIZE
Could clubs of the same type,
such as political, organize a governing group which would act
as a co-ordinator of events and
guest speakers, thus preventing
splitting students interest with
two similar events or speakers
on the same day'.'
Should Hungarian sludenis be
allowed   to  gradually  assimilate

themselves, or should an active
effort be made lo orient them?
In consideration of the fact
that the campus is growing, is
the student council an efficient
form of student government?
Could it be replaced with organizations similar to the University Clubs Committee? j
SELF-DISCIPLINED
To   what   extent    should   students  he  self-disciplined?     I.s   it
lair lo ask Student Court or Student   Council  to penalize  fellow '
students?

And if students cause destruction off-campus, is it a student

FROSH
Hazing came under fire as
an outmoded, medieval form of
introducing the student to university. It was recognized that
students should be welcomed in
some way, and realized that
many frosh expect some kind
of excitement.
Two suggestions were: a
gigantic noon-hour competition,
frosh vs the entire university,
to be held in the stadium, and a
"big-brother" system of orienting freshmen.
The high degree of participation at UBC was endorsed, and
it was agreed that as many
sports as possible should be sup

To The Polls
Frosh will go to the polls on
Wednesday to elect their student
executive.
Candidates for president are:
Jim Meekison and Jim Winchell,
and for vice-president, Lois
Boulding and Nick Scarfe.
Wendy Rosene and Jackie Wilson are running for secretary
and for treasurer, Bill Armstrong and Dean Feltham.
Only 100 students, from a
frosh population of over 2,000
turned out last Monday to hear
the campaign speeches.
Monday, candidates said they
hope that a great many more
will go to the polls Wednesday.

was agreed the days of driving
to lectures were over. It was
admitted that with expansion,
cars may eventually be prohibited on campus, which means
fringe parking.

Birds Improving
But Lose Game
In the Evergreen Conference football opener at Tacoma,
Saturday, Pacific Lutheran College Gladiators held the UBC
Thunderhirds scoreless in reco
It was not an easy win for the
Lutes.
Thc Birds played a hard defensive game, breaking up numerous PLC scoring threats, but
were unable to get rolling on
the offence.
DEFENSIVE GAME
George Hoar, just recovered
from the flu, played a tremendous defensive game as corner
linebacker.
So eager were the Birds for
PLC meat that assistant coach
Bobby Hindmarch, spotting from
the stands, claimed 11 UBC men
were in on one tackle.
The Lutes, favored to win
handily, managed only one
touchdown in the first half, and
it came as a result of a UBC
fumble on their own five.
PLC actually earned only one
of their touchdowns, marching
57 yards in 11 plays late in the
third quarter with John Jacob-
son passing six yards to fullback
Tommy Gilmer for the score.
PUNT BLOCKED
PLC's second touchdown came
when linebacker Ron McAUistdV
crashed through to block Bruce
McCallum's punt from the end
zone.   Orson Christensen pounc-
j ed   on   thc   ball   just   before   it
| reached the end line.
i     UBC lost their chance to re-
! cord their first score of the year
i and tie up the ball game in the
second  quarter    when    Wayne
rding a 26-0 victory.
Aileen dropped quarterback Bill
Melville's 26-yard pass in tho
end zone.
MAJOR MISTAKES
Although the Birds played
their hearts out, major mistakes
contributed to their defeat. UBC
fumbled seven times and lost
the ball once. Two of their sixteen pass attempts were intercepted, with three being conv
pleted for 16 yards.
Several offside calls nullified
some of UBC's biggest gains.
Thunderbirds came out of Saturday's game vvith four more injuries. Fullback Sandy Harvey,
quarterback Jim Oliver, end
Lcagh Farrell and halfback
Frank Tarling suffered pulled,
tendons.
Harvey, Farrell and Tarling
have their knees in casts and
will not see action for the rest
of the season.
FLU AND INJURIES
Six Birds who did not make
the trip to Tacoma because of
flu and injuries are Jackie Henwood, Oscar Kreutziger, Dune
Mclnnes, Ian McDonald, Denny
Argue and Gordy Olafson.
Thunderbirdi meet CPS at
UBC Stadium next Saturday.
Although CPS is boasting th*
biggest team in the Conference,
Frank Gnup says we'll girt
them a battle.
