The Ubyssey
NO. 6
Last Tuesday this newspaper outlined tho administration's financial problems in relation to the $30 foe Increase
imposed this year.
At that time we explained Dr. MacKenzie's position as
outlined to Student Council Friday afternoon/
We accepted the president's testimony that the increase
has been prompted solely by rising costs, new services, and
falling enrollments.
Since that time, however, the campus has been buzzing
with ugly rumors and nasty questions.
Responsible and thinking students have made an analysis of the situation and they have told us that they are not
satisfied with Dr. MacKenzie's answers or with the reluctance of the Board of Governors to release the pertinent
The Ubyssey agrees that .the charges being hurled back
and forth in the coffee shops, in the quad, and up and down
the mall must be answered.
We therefore pass them to the administration not as a
smear campaign but as the demand of students for information.
The trouble, it seems, started last spring.
About the middle of March, at least one administrative
Official was quoted as saying "we do not at this time contemplate a fee increase."
Yet a check with the printers reveals that the calendar
reveals that the final deadline for additions and corrections
was the end of February.
It would appear, therefore, that the university administration had decided on a fee increase and had had the type
set for the calendar some time before one of its senior officials announced blandly that no increase was contom«
Why? * ' "    /
Facts and Figures Needed
Was H because the administration wanted the increase
announced so dose to the end of the term that studeAt protests would be next to impossible?
Then the administration proclaimed that "if we get a
sizable federal grand the increase may be dropped."
That was In April.
But reliable political informants tell us that the federal
government had decided to make grants as early as February and the amount of these grants was fixed within rough
limits at that time.
Why wejre we given the runaround?
When student council appeared before Dr. MacKenzie
they were told that "rising costs" had prompted the increase.
Yet the only costs cited were a $200,000 pay boast to
the faculty, a $5000 salary for a new athletic director, and
between $25,000 and $60,000 for a new infirmary.
These add up to less than $300,000. Yet the administration will get between $500,000 and $600,000 from the federal
government this year.
Do they still need another $150,000 from students?
If so, what for?
Were Students Duped ?
They cannot likely plead increased building Costs because building grants from the provincial governments are
usually for specific projects and mention specific amounts.
On this page Tuesday we printed from Mr. Tim Buck,
national leader of the LPP, an article in which the Communist chief charged that fee increases were part of a deliberate policy to slash college enrollments.
He says the government wants more soldiers—which
it won't get from the colleges—and that it is worried about
the numbers of professional men being turned loose in a
raw materials economy.
Some students are wondering whether or not he is
It is up to the administration to prove that he is wrong.
If it cannot, it will have committed suicide.
A Statement by Tuesday?
The Ubyssey has reserved this space in its next issue
for a reply from Dr. MacKenzie, from the Board of Governors, or from any other spokesman for the administration
Dr. MacKenzie and the board care to name.
In event that no reply is received this space will be
left blank whh an appropriate explanation above.
Such an eventuality will be taken by the student body
to mean that the administration either cannot answer or
finds it politiciaUy inexpedient to answer.
STRONG SUPPORTERS of development in the arts, letters and sciences are working for
immediate government action on the Massey Report. One of the report's recommendations is
more scholarships. Prof. Geoffrey Andrew (left) and Community Arts Council President Alec
Walton, discuss the report with Dr. Norman MacKenzie, a member of the royal commission that
drew it up.

A Catholic priest in the department of classics here haa
stepped wearing his clerical
clothes in class, reportedly as
a result of pressure from the
University Senate.
From reliable sources close to
the Senate the Ubyssey has heard
that Father Carr, lecturer in Greek
has been ordered to wear ordinary
business suits when in class.
President MacKensle vigorously
denied that any pressure was put
on Father Carr to conceal bis Catholic identity.
We are extremely lucky to have
such a man as Father Carr with
us," he said in an interview with
a Ubyssey reporter. "We hare
made no attempt to hide the faot
that he has been ordained into
holy orders." -     *
"As far as I o-m concerned. Father Carr can wear whatever he
chooses in class. We have had
other people with religious affiliations teaching on the campus—we
have a Baptist minister, for ex*
amiple—<but none of them wear
their clerical clothes. This Is strict"
ly a matter of their personal
This is Father Carr's first year
at UBC. He comes with a hifh *§•
putaitlon from tihe East, inhere he
was for some years head at St.
Michael's College at the University
of Toronto.
Originally a Brazilian, he ls particularly well-known for studies in
ancient and medieval classics.
The administration stressed the
fact that they hace complete confidence In Father Carr. According to
Geoffrey Andrew, executive assistant to the president, "Matters of
religion make no difference in appointments to the staff; they are
basel solely on academic qualifier
When queried as to whe«fe^*the
senate had taken any suoti action*
Sherwood Lett, Chancellor-elect,
stated that he "had no domment to
make," and that any information
must come from the president.
Father Carr himself had no
statement to make. "I consider
this an entirely private, personal
matter," he told a Ubyssey reporter, "and I do not feel I can
say  anything  about  it."

a. n. F. Chant, UBC's dean of
arts and science, will act as head
of the school education until the

University officials say the Appointment Is "virtually automatic*'
since Dean Chant's faculty Includes

staff of the school until a permanent appointment can bo made for

The university's "lead curtain", designed
apparently to enable our administrators to
avoid feeing serious issues, has cmoe again
dropped the administration squarely into the
bofllng caldron.
A completely reliable source has informed
The Ubyssey that Father Carr, probably Canada's outstanding authority on classical languages and orfe of the most able Thomlat philosophers in the country, has been ordered to
teach in a business suit.
The order, a delicately phrased "request"
oame from the University Senate—a group
which, apparently, is afraid that the presence of a Roman Catholic cleric on the faculty m|ght well create a public uproar.
The action, of course, is complete indefensible.
It is so indefensible that nobody will admit that it even happened.
Our information is so reliable that Dr.
MacKcmfcie and Pwrf. Afidtvw have made
themselves look ridiculous %jy denying the
Father Carr, a modest mam) is, understandably, loathe to capitalize on the event.
He makes no secret, however, of lhe fact that
he is proud of his clerical garb and that he 4s
not particularly pleased with the project of
lecturing in a business suit.
Why lie Senate should refuse to faoe the
issue intelligently will prefafbly forever remain a mystery.
This is a university. We mm not iitterert-
ed in the race, religion, or political tehets of
our faculty. All we ask ia that they be able
soholaw and able teatchere.
Father Carr has long ago proved that he
is both.
We are proud to have him with us.
And we shall be proud to see him in the
classroom in the garb ol his order.
The policy of the Ubyssey, in fact any
responsi'ble newspaper, has always been to
never hide any facts which the public has a
right to know.
lhe Ubyssey has always attempted to
bring to the attention of the students all the
facts on any particular problem so that additional facts can be unearthed, and so that intelligent decisions can be made.
li individuals are unwilling to release information, then we feel that it is necessary
to get that information without their help
from other sources. We hope that they can
therefore be induced to produce the additional facts that the students ought to know.
In a letter to the Ubyssey, Bob Gourlie,
president of the Students Committee of Fort
Camp, states that "it was expressly and unanimously decided .... that publicity by the
Ubyssey was out."
In the meantime tho downtown press had
already printed a story on the alleged complaints of the Fort Camp Students. It was
therefore necessary, in line with out policy,
to bring to the students as much of thc issue
that it was possible to get.
The refusal of the Fort Camp students to
issue any statements was a mistake on their
part, in view of the fact that the story was
bound to come out.
An attempt to suppress news has always made the story even more prominent
than it would have otherwise been, by vir-
' tue of the suppression. *
The public has always been particularly
interested in secrets. To be "let in on a secret"
places one a plane above the rest who we
left in ignorance,
But eliminating secrets and bringing facts
into the open eliminates the sensational that
goes along with such secrets.
Had the Fort Camp Students issued a
statement, then the embarrassment that they
supposedly now suffer would have not occurred.
The Ubyssey knows that Fort Camp was
never meant to be an attempt at luxurious
living. It feels, however, that monies spent on
improvements should be made on the advice
of the students living there, in order to make
the most expedient use of that money.
The Ubyssey also takes the stand that money must be spent not to make major improvements, but to keep up minimum standards
for healthy living, and to provide the means
of efficient studying and learning.

Up A Tne
by Jay
I'm seriously thinking of selling my radio
and giving up my membership in the Book-
of-the-Month Club. The radio program's
bore me to tears and I never seem to have
the time to read novels. I've discovered a
new form of entertainment.
No, I haven't bought a new TV set. In
fadt I didn't have much to do With it at first.
You see the telephone company gave me
a new number the other day.
First, I was annoyed because my old
number was a perfectly respectable one and
never gave me a bit of trouble. Now I was
faced with the task of unlearning the old
one which had served me so well for the
past five years, and learning a perfectly new,
and probably less efficient, one.
But then things began to happen. It
wasn't an hour after my number had been
changed that someone called. The voice seemed a bit surprised at hearing my voice, but
finally inquired if Hazel were there. I assured
the caller that Hazel was not, never was, and
neiter would, I hoped, be here. I hung up.
Within the next hour, male voices called
asking for a Dorothy and a Sally. By this time
I was mad. Why had I been given someone
else's number? I felt a pang of longing for my
old number. Why couldn't I have it back?
Then I got an idea. I looked in the telephone book at all the soroities, YMCA's and
other women's organizations in town. Sure
enough, a sorority in the centre of town had a
number almost like my new one; only the last
two digits were reversed.
The future looked black. Was I to spend the
res tot my life politely, or otherwise, telling
young men that Dorothy's and Sally's did not
frequent my home? I was probably breaking
up all manner of romances and shattering
endless varieties of beautiful friendships.
Of course I could tell each and every
caller that they had the wrong number. But
that's gone out of fashion now, so I am told.
Then came The Great Inspiration. I
would compose, yes even create, clever and
telling replies to much mundane questions as
"Is Alice there?", or "Can I speak to Jane
please?'' or "Will you have Jean come to the
phone please." Then I realized I was creating,
yes, I was the author of a new art. The Art
of Dealing with Persons Who Have The
Wrong Number.
No longer do I dread the ringing of the
telephone just because it probably isn't for
me anyway. I await with eagerness the next
ting-a-ling from the hall table. Ahd while I
wait, I tHink up a new answer to the same old
questions and carefully enter into the notebook.
You should hear my latest. It goes something like this:
"Just a minute (this is me) I'll see."
After an appropriate silence during which I
am ostensibly prowling the house in
search of Mabel or Betty or Hilda, I resume,
"I'm terribly sorry, but she seems to have left
rather suddenly. The window in her room
was open when I looked in, and I rather think
that as her lying on the sidewalk below. However she seems to have left a note behind
for you. Shall I mail it to you, Old chap?"

Dear Sir:
Last issue Misquoted President
This heading was in your last Issue and you've done It again. The
president of Port Camp has been
misquoted. Such Inefficiency.
It is the.policy of the Fort Camp
executive , to co-operate with the
University Housing Committee. We
want no more of this blatant, exaggerated, Inaccurate publicity by
an Irresponsible woman reporter
from the Ubyssey. Can you Imagine
a woman reporting oh the men's
position at Port Camp.
It was expressly and unanimously decide*** at the last Port Camp
meeting (which no woman could
attend) that publicity by the
Ubyssey was out!
The facts are as follows. We are
at present negotiating with the
housing administrators to arrive
at »• satisfactory understanding as
regards the canteen. As yet nothing has been decided, but we are
strongly trying to come to a reasonable decision. Now, referring to
the facilities at the camp: as men
we are used to a certain amount
of "roughing it", but things are
not really as bad as Miss Kathle
has painted them.
In future, please be so kind as
to approach the Port Camp executive for a true picture of the situ-
ivtion   before   publishing   such   rot.

program of the recent inaugurated Concert Season of the Literary and Scientific Executive.
•Ten concerts, designed to provide an opportunity for the music
lover to hear seldom played works
ot the great modern and early composers, played by the world-famous
recltallsts and by groups of the
finest Vancouver talent, will be
presented during the season.
Composers to be heard will Include Mosart, Handel, Ernest
Bloch, Ravel, William Byrd, Purcell, as well as Bwtok and Stravinsky.
Hereto, Vancouver audiences and
especially students at UBC have

3. To Institute a conosrtsd cam-
pa l-Jn to see that every student on
the campus Is taking at least some
advantage of the opportunities
available  through  our  society.   -< |
An attempt would be made to see
that the work and opportunities for
participation in extra-curricular
activities be spread much more
widely. A determined offort must
be made to see that students, particularity those In first year get
interested in extra-curricular activity.
An indication of our success or
failure In this venture will be
shown by the spring election. Until
offices on the student's council
stop going by acclamation we can
con.sider that we have failed to
interest the great mass of the students In student government and
have not persuaded them as to the
advantages of full participation.
4. A campaign to make downtown
Vancouver    university    conscious.1
Making downtown Vancouver conscious  of  the  university  so as  toj
sain their support is partly covered   by   the   propaganda  campaign
envisaged   in   objective   two    but i
tliere   are   a   couple   of   practical
points  which  it might  be well to
mention   in   this   connection.   The
first  is  the full  utilization of the I
large number of media for free ad-:
vertlslng available downtown. The
second and  more  important  medium of making the city of Vancouver
1'nlver.sity   conscious   now   being
overlooked, is the members of our j
society.  How  many of them  wear
.UHC   pins   and   have   some   point;
about the university that they are|
.sufficiently enthusiastic about that'
t.liey try to sell it to the many Van
couver   citizens   with   which   they
come into contact every day?  We
should  strive  to enthuse students
.about  our  overall  theme   and   objective so  that  they will sell the
Ideas while at university and, looking   ahead,   do   something   about
them in the not too distant future
when they are in positions ol! authority   and   influence  in  this  province. These four objectives, if carried   out   at   your   directive   would
.make   for   a   year   of   outstanding
slstance of The Players Club and
with the Interested co-operation
of the LSE.
Ascent ot P6 was written by
W. H. Auden and Christopher isherwood ln 1936, and it expresses
in challenging fashion the poet's
profound concern for the world of
today. It presents also mi extremely interesting combination of
several modern theatre techniques,
including a verse choir, music,
dance, realism, the epic play and
so forth.
Men .and wotrien will be prepared for high school commer*
dial specialist teaching by a new
course offered by the School of

In this course.
Students who may have the necessary skill in typing and shorthand maV sit for an examination
Immediately. If they obtain the required standing they will be exempted from these courses and required only to attend the lectures

the school, has suggested that
women students Who have net definitely decided upon a career
should consider entering this option.

Free Tickets Lure
Hockey Patrons
How would you hockey fans like to take in not one hockey
game but two hockey games all for free? Sounds good doesn't
it?? Well it's a solid fact. This fabulous offer will be available
on Wednesday, October 24, at the Forum.'
Free ducats may be picked up at the sports department
downstairs in Brock Hall anytime after 11:30 on Monday.
There are a limited number of these entertainment passes so do
not tarry on Monday.
This generous offer is being made through the courtesy of the
UBC Thunderbirds hockey team on behalf of the Vancouver Commercial Hockey League. Wednesday October 24 is to be "Annie Oakley"
higiht at the Forum when the Commercial League gets underway. Giv-
itng out complimentary, tickets ls the' League's method of capturing spectator Interest tor the coming season.
The only sour note to tbe expected night's come-all entertainment
ls the fact that our own Thunderbirds will not be playing. This little
decision was reached last Mouday at a meeting of the Executive Committee of the League. UBC ag represented by yours truly and only after
much emphatic table-pound Ing, muttered threats and proposed duets at
dawn was it agreed Miat UBC would have a bye on opening night.
Agreed that Is. after being voted down 4-1.
But a lively night is anticipated for all who attend. The other four
teams In tbe league will be after each other's scalps and while the team
doctors are patching up the casualties the Firemen's band will provide
appropriate music for a donnybrook. The Pllsener team (yes, tihe name
is connected with that amber fluid) last year's Firemen, will attack
PNE Indians and B.C. Electric "White Hawks" will square oft against
Burnaby "Beavers."
fl** flfi qfi
The following week, October 31 to be exact, our own Thunderbirds
will be on display tilting with the B.C. Electric team. Laat year's Pacific
Stage Flyers have' amalgamated with the BCE this season ana should
be a tough team to beat.
Those of you who attended the exhibition games last season between
UBC and the Commercial League teams and the play-offs for the Fress
Press trophy will remember how our 'Birds successfully defeated both
the league teams and their all-star team to win the trophy.
The Campus has been hit by the World Series fever.
Proof of this was evident today as students crowded into
Brock Lounge to catch the opening game.
The New York Giants started out where they left off
against Brooklyn and before they were through the favoured Yankees were on the short end of a 5-1 score.
Dave Kaslo's fine pitching and Alvin Dark's sixth inning home run sparked the Giants, The thrill packed series
continues today at Yankee Stadium.

On Ammendment
Much controversy has irlsen
over the proposed amendments
to the Alma Meter Society constitution to provide wider tudent
representation. Here are two sides
to the question. One Is by two
members of the constitution revision oomlttte, the other by the Initiator of the large plan,,
(EDITOR'S NOTE)—Following Is
a statement by Ivan Feltham, Chairman of ths constitution revision
committee and Sill Neen, CUS
chairman and a member of the
By the fall of 1950, two deficiencies ln the setup of the Alma Mater
Society had become apparent to
those actively interested in student government..
These were need for some sort
of sectional representation, direct
or indirect, and the need for additional shoulder to bear the ever-
Increasing burden of administering
UBC's extensive program of student
After much research, we have
come to the conclusion that the
following plan would be the most
suitable tor the efficient operation
of our Society. Briefly, the plan
entails the elimination of the positions of Sophomore and Junior
members 'and the substitution of
mi External Affairs Officer and
three members-at-large elected Indirectly by Undergraduate Society presidents from their own
These three membersat-large
would not be representatives of
only their respective faculty groups
The proposed Indirect methods of
election* would guarante a selection
of the best from "tne Undergrad
excutlves to act directly as representatives of the whole student
body and, at the same time, as
representatives capable of presenting diverse faculty opinions.
The other alternative ls far too
large for Uie efficient carrying on
of AMS business. Council experience has shown that a smaller
group can act efficiently.
If all members were allowed
their right to speak at any time,
the result would be needless repl-
tltlon of opinion for the sake of
bolstering a particular argument.
In the editorial of Thursday, October 4, the Ubyssey states. "The
plan . . . could result only in a
more eucmnberam-e council susceptible to 'pressure grouping' from
all sides."
The "Wise Decision" of the Stu
dent Council''favours an administrative body with only two members less than the plan we advocate.
Following Is the statement of
Roy North, proponent of an expansion of Student Council from
11 to 23 members.
The proposed 23 man Council
is a combination of administrative
and legislative powers in one body.
It is a compromise between the
present, functional council and a
porportlonally representative one
which is impossible to successfully
attain here and now.
Each student will then have dual
representation on Council; his
extra • faculty activities through
WUS, WAA, LSE and MAD, and his
faculty representation through the
various undergraduato society presidents. The heavy load of council
work will then be spread on more
shoulders with result and speed,
but not the fatigue existing at
It will stimulate greater faculty
and campus spirit through direct
responsibility qnd interest. Therefore mofe students will have the
opportunity to learn and understand practical student politics.
Consequently* there will be a
much larger number of students
with sufficient background and
eperience to run for the functional
council positions,
The disadvantage of numbers
can be greatly lessened by publishing Council agenda in advance,
rigidly adhering to rule of procedure, and by Council respecting
their fellow members and the president by deleting (irrelevance and
repltition from their opinions.
We must be aware of the burden of Council's steadily increasing duties and plan for a more
democratic administrative and legislative system ut UBC.
