Ubyssey reporters and photographers barely escaped a drenching themselves. As the mob
came out of the building a group
of Inconslderute redshirts poured
buckets of water on them from
the top of the structure.

Ubyssey officials. JBut. they were

Hicks emphasized that all EUS
members should take an active
interest  In  their  functions.
Me said that although he did
not necessarily agree with the
Freshmen Orientation procedures, he would advise all  mem
bers to voice their own opinions
us to whether freshmen should
be dunked in the Illy pond.
Hicks blames the freshmen
for this year's pond dunking. He
said the Engineers were intending to forego this annual pleasure but the frosh would not
co-operate.
He said that therefore the "Engineers were forced to complete
a job the frosh started.
Amendments to their constlu-
tion were also discussed and
voted upon.
Today's general meeting in the armouries at noon will be
built around four Student Council recommendations.
Council's proposals are a fee increase of two dollars, a

only the starting point ol' an Insidious scheme designed to ham-
string athletics entirely.

The case with football and
other sports Is different. Here
the reputation of the whole university Is at stake. Furthermore,
these events are often watched
by businessmen from downtown,
lt Is readily seen, then, that these

life.
We feel, therefore, that Is the

Raghbir Basi Makes President's Report
The time has come to look buck
over the period .to our term of
office 1952-5,1 and tnke stock of
what we have done. Everything
that we attempted was not necessarily a success and everything
was also not a failure. We are all
young and we all are liable to make
mistakes. However, the encouraging fact Is that In our university
we tire allowed to choose whatever
we want to do. My foremost appreciation goes to the administration of our great institution for
recognizing the value of student
autonomy, that everyone of us enjoys, and that Imparts a certain
meuufhg to reports such as this
one.
The "Students' Council had a very-
busy year. Apart from the general
day-to-day administration of the affairs of the society, the attention
of the Students' Council was absorbed by the various needs of
the time.
»vui* of all the President'.
Committees has been exceptionally
good during the term and there
is every reason to believe that lt
will be carried on with added enthusiasm in the future.
ISS COMMITTEE
ISS Committee has carried out
Its general, program of student exchanges very successfully. On top
of five European Scholarships this
year, for the first time there was
a student from Japan under the
allspices of the ISS. A UBC student
is scheduled to go to Japan In the
coming year. It Is also expected
tl::it an exchange scholarship with
India will be worked out ln the
immediate future. Numerous other
contacts have also been established
by tne committee with Institutions
ln other lands and the work of
the committee was appreciated by
the Department of External Af-
fairs of Canada and has made this
university known the world over.
My sincere appreciation goes to
the work done by the ISS Committee and its leading light, Miss
Brlgitta Balta.
My well wishes for the successful completion of the coming International Seminar to be held in
India and the best of everything to
the ISS Committee and those who
will be attending the Seminar.
IHC
The   International   House   Committee, now functioning for Its second year, had a year of great success.   In   October,   the  Committee

In February. All the ventures met
with a great de£.LQLejLcmiragement;

NFCUS  COMMITTEE
The    committee,    though    getting-,

members committee arranged this
two-day conference with over 150
delegates from high schools all
over the province participating.
Deepest appreciation Is expressed
tor the excellent work done by the
committee.
ACADEMIC STANDARDS
COMMITTEE
The work of the committee has
been of necessity of a quiet nature. Most of the work has been
with respect to tue academic
standards at UBC, what they actually are, whether they need improvement and how to improve
mem. The committee Is presently
engaged lu soliciting the co-operation of faculty members to rate
the ability of the lecturers at university through getting a prepared
form rilled out by the students In
the class.
Mr. John Haar, assistant director of the Extension Department,
has been of tremendous assistance
in the work of this committee.
Deepest respects go to Mr. Haar
and the committee for the most
valuable work being done.
Student Library Committee and
the Student /Alumni Committee
were handicapped ln the perform-
mance of their work because the
appointments of their chairmen
were made rather late. Due to the
nature of work involved, the work
lias been quiet. However, it has
been steady. An appreciation of
the work done Is expressed and
my thanks go to John De Wolff
and Ted Lee, respective chairmen
of the committees.
1C0UNCIL  STANDING
COMMITTEES,
Most of he work of the admins-
tration of the Society's affairs is
done by .the various standing com
mittees of the Students' Council.
All this work Is behind the scenes,
however, it rorms the major integ-
gral part ln the functioning of the
Society and I would like to pay
tribute to the work done by the
chairmen of these committees and
the various , council members on
them. Special appreciation is expressed to Denny Silvestrini for
his work on Frosh Orientation
Committee, to Ueoff Prlugle for the
excellent carrying out of his responsibilities on the Elections
Committee, HAA Committee and
Discipline Committee; to Jerry
Duclos for his work in Personnel
Committee and Accident Benefit
Fund Committee; to Frank Carroll
for his very successful work and
his work on the Homecoming and
the Brock l&xtenslon Committee;
and to others whose names could
not be mentioned In this report.
PLAN  OF ACTION   PROGRESS
Tiie work on the "Flan of Action'' for 1052-5:1 was begun lather
late due fo Various circumstances.
All the ofl'ort was made to accomplish whatever was possible in the
limited span ot time at the disposal of those engaged lu the work.
The student point of view towards the .rising cost of university education was made clear for
the administration in a brief presented to the Board of Governors
with the idea that the adininii.tra
lion may wisli to incorporate it iu
its presentation to the provincial
government n>r increased government grants to the universltv
BCE   BRIEF
A brief was presented to the
B.C. Klectric for lower rates on the
'ity transit system for university
students. Mr. Grauer. president of
the liCK, agreed with the I'BC
delegation that the students' re-
iliipst was legitimate. However, he
said that it. was not justifiable
enough to demand Immediate action iu the face of the present
stringent financial position of the
BCK. In practical terminology,
what this means Is that the reiiuest
did not have at Its hack the required pressure to make the nclo
consider It Justifiable. Such is the
behaviour of a most modern corporation In the field of public re-
isponsibilities. Justice is spelled
out through the force of pressure!
Students need lo [itke i firm j
stand   for   their   rights.
A letter has gone to Mr. Grauer
asking hlm to bring the matter to
the attention of the Hoard of Directors of the BCK. and copies of
the brief have already been sent
to all the Hoard members. It is
recommended that, our successor
power to impress upon the BCK
student government do all in their
the desirability and need of tills
already overdue social reform.
AMS    BUDGET    INVESTIGATION
A four-man commission to do the
necessary investigation was appointed with Mike Myan as chairman. Ilewever, it was found that
It was extremely hard for the
commission to go into the minute
(lel-iils of how the budget is spent
after having been distributed
among the various organizations,
the usefulness of the money spent
and the student participation involved, etc., etc. So il was decided
that Ihe School of Commerce be
approached and asked if II could
assign the subject as a thesis topic
to one of its .students. As a result
one of tiie post-graduate students
iu Commerce has already chosen
Ihe subject for Ills thesis for next
year. II is recommended thai based
on I hi analysis of I he above si inly,
when stibniited the students council appoint a collimssi-Mi lo assess
Ihe value of Ihe money spent
through 'he various outlets of the
AMS budget and make broad i ec
ommeiidat ions allowing enough
flexibility as lo Hie actual budget

HONORARY ACTIVITIES
AWARDS    COMMITTEE
The committee has produced un
excellent report with recommendation on the HAA set up. Deep appreciation is expressed to the
chairman, Miss Joan MacArthut'
and her committee for the excellent work that has been done on
the subject.
Joan Mayuzawa, chairman of the
MFood Services Committee and
John DeWolff, chairman of the
Employment Services Committee
has done an appreciable amount
of work ln their respective fields.
My hearty thanks go to both of
them for the work that they have
already accomplished. However,
there is a great deal that still needs
to be done, thut must be ai-eonip-'
llshed to finish the jobs for which
the committees were set up.
It Is strongly recommended that
both the committees be continued
the following 'year as President's
Committees so that their respective
jobs could be finished.
INTERNATIONAL ASPECT
OP CAMPUS LIFE
This year for the first time, a
regional conference to promote
the principles of the UN was held
on the campus under the wispifces
of the UN Club. Also every effort
was made to make the stay of the
foreign students at UBC most
worthwhile, through the untiring
efforts or the International House
Committee, Inter-Students Service
und various other organizations.
Many downtown organizations like
the International House Alumi Association, Rotary Club, Zonta Club,
IODK, Chinese Benevolent Society,
etc., made a special effort to entertain the foreign Btudents. A
deep sense of appreciation Q.f the
work done Is expressed and It Is
hoped thut the bonds of co-operation
between the students and the various downtown organizations will
become even stronger ln the future.
A formal representation was also made by the Students' Council
to Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie to Increase the number ot courses offered in tlje field of Kastern
Studies.
COMMUNITY-STUDENT
RELATIONS
Every effort was made at every
! opportunity that was presented to
| bring the university student  body
to the attention of the B.C. public
aud  to cement the  ties of friend-
i ship.  Iu tills connection the name
of Bill St. John, PRO, needs a spe-
'■ cial mention. Greatest appreciation
Is expressed to  him  for the excellent  work  that   lie  has  done over
the past term lu bringing the student   hotly   before   the   public   eye.
CAMPUS ACTIVITIES
COORDINATION
'    .On the home front It was unfor-
' tunate that a couple of clashes did
occur in the student activities on
the campus.  However, that should
1 not  make us  forget the great deal
•of   work   that   was   put   in   co-ordinating   the   calendar   of   activities
for Hie entire year. My cotigriitula-
lions to Co-ordlnator of Activities.
Mr.   Denny  Silvestrini  for  the  job
well done in the overall  pattern of
co-ordination   of  activities   for   the
whole session.
AMS CONSTITUTION
REVISION   COMMITTEE
My sincere appreciation goes to
Miss Ann Willis tud the members
of her committee for the great deal
of work fiat has been done iu cooperation wilh the Students' Council iu preparing a skeleton for the
organization of the AMS for presentation to the general student1
hotly.
Whatever    the    change    in    the
overall set-up of the AMS as a  result of the annual general meeting's
deliberation.  Ihe  fact still  remains
that   for  most  of  the  students  the
AMS  constitution  and   bylaws  are J
still a jumble of words.
It is recommended that the com-
| tnittee  be continued  with a  strong
I chairman  so  that the  revised  con-1
i stitutlon   can   be   finalized   during
, the   next  session   and   be   put   into;
i effect   commencing  from   the   lil.Vt-

the great deal of work that was put
into them to make them a success,
MAD
Athletics   ou   the   whole   had   a
very   successful   year.   With   all   the
ops and downs that fell to the fate
of   the   MAD during   the   term,  the
end result ha,s been very satisfying.
The   issue   of   Ihe   Senate's   "Fresh-i
man    Ruling"    which    necessitated i
two special meetings of the Society,
lias been finally resolved and again
student    autonomy    was    restored.
The MAD has  been again  made re-,
sponsible   to   do   whatever   it    con-
sidens best   lor its members.

the various annual events, productions, etc, which this year again
were all highly successful. Thanks
to the LSE Clubs, we had u very
full year with a great deal of activity full of educational and* social
values.
The re-organization of the LSE
which started two years ago, has
also finally been completed.
PUBLICATION SOARD
For the first time ln many years
the Student Directory combined
with the Student Handbook was
published quite early In the year.
Out of the profits made from the
sale, a camera was purchased for
permanent use of the Publications
Board. The Totem editor also
promises that the year book will be
out in time and this fact should
Insure that there would be less
losses than have been experienced
In the past. Congratulations are
expressed to Joe Schlesinger,
Bdltor-lnChief of the Ubyssey and
the head of the Publications Board
for his excellent administration ln
those "dark offices downstairs."
Work of the USC, WUS and
WAD has also been very good
throughout the year in their respective fields of.endeavor and my
congratulations to those who were
responsible to carry them out.
It la meet encouraging to note
that there la « tremendous
amount of extra-curricular activity going on on our oamput. However, more satisfying le the fact
that such a large majority of our
students rocognlte tho value of
•uch activities and are willing to
devote their valuable time. I
think this ia a major faotor for
Insuring a successful and proper
University education and in making It oomplete. May Ood give
us the vision to continue In our
efforts to get a true university
education!
I would like to express my deep
sense ot gratitude for. all the cooperation that was accorded to me
by all the students at every point.
Without their encouragement
nothing would have been'possible
to be accomplished and .whntever j
has been accomplished Is solely
due to them In every respect.
Thanks, too, to all the people who
worked on the various committees
whose joint work has made the |
year present such an encouraging
picture as lt does. Lust, but not
least. 1 would like to express my
deepest sense of pleasure to the
members of the Students' Council
with whom I worked ln the common
enterprise.
I do not claim that the year has
been an exceptionally successful
one. Obviously there have been
many instances where it could
have been much more successful.
In fact, such Instances where improvement was possible are many.
There are many student* on this
Campus who would have been able
to administer the Campus affairs
ln a much better way than 1 have
been able to do. However, I was
placed   In   tho   position   last   year
and It became my duty to carry out.
tho job. 1 would like to assure the
students that 1 have endeavoured
to do my best, which was circumscribed by the bounds of my own
many limitations. That I was given
the chance to serve the Student
Body of this University is a matter
that I consider a great privilege.
I will always remember this university with-the deepest atfection.
It has helped me to recognise myself and thus the Jewel of humility
has become part of my decorations
for this life. Even though I fully
realize that in almost whatever
wa« done over the past year there
was room for Improvement ln varying degrees, I feel that the year on
the whole has been successful.

THE   UBYSSEY
Thursday, March 19, 1953
AL FOTHERINGHAM
Campus Chaff
In a guest editorial in Tuesday's paper, Johann Stoyva, the
"athletic supporter" as he calls himself, displays another masterpiece of illogical reasoning. Although he has been soundly
rebuked at two successive Student Council meetings for his
stand, Stoyva still persists in his argument that the Men's
Athletic Directorate budget has to be cut to give extra money
to the Literary and Scientific Executive.
Stoyva Is Just as stubborn ns he Is ridiculous in his argument. No
one will deny that LSE needs more money. Practically every group on
tho campus could use some of the green stuff. The only logical way to
gt more money If It is needed is to raise the AMS fee.
UBC. among the three biggest universities In Cunudti, has the
lowest A.MS ree. The actual AMS fee, exclusive of the gym and ISS
fee, has never been raised since the university was founded. This year
MAD, the Undergraduate Societies, women's sports and LSE need more
money. The Publications Board will need an extra grant If The Ubyssey
is to continue at three issues a week.
For this reason Student Council has backed the $2.00 fee increase.
Yet Stoyva says he doesn't want more money from a fee hike, he wants
It to come rrom the MAD budget. #
His dog-ln-the-manger attitude was plainly shown at Monday's
■Student Council meeting. After testifying that LSR needed money
for various clubrooms and lounges nnd being blasted by treasurer
Gerry Duclos for advocating straight capital expenditure for LSE,
Stoyva was put on the spot.
Duclos said: "Let's get this straight. You want more money, is
that right?"
(Stoyva said: "Yes."
"But you don't want a fee Increase?"
"No."
"Yon simply wrant to get the money out of tbe MAD Budget?"
"That's right," said Stoyva.
After screaming about "muscle-bound bench warmers" Stoyva left
the meetlpg'in a huff when Council voted against him.
In the editorial on Tuesday Stoyva says the greater part of student
fee* go to bolster football games and the like. He moans that hla
LSE got $3000 while the MAD received $16,000.
If Stoyva would stop frothing at the mouth for a change and check
the figures his argument wouldn't look so pitiful. Out of that $16J>00
•MA© has to pay $8,800 for administrative costs. They have to pay
$750 dollars for stadium maintenance. $500 Is deducted to keep the
books.  A further $100 goes for public relations.
This leaves the gigantic sum of $5850 for the MAD to spend on
football, volleyball, track, swimming, rowing, goir, skiing, cricket, tennl'4
fencing and intra-murals.
USE doesn't have to pay any $10,150 on overhead costs. LSK
doesn't have to hire secretaries. They use Student -Council offices, their
books are kept by the AMS. They don't have to pay for the maintenance
of the AMS offices as MAD has to do with the stadium.
'In the editorial Stoyva really hits a low level when he complains
that students still pay 11 n annua! $5 tribute to the "sporting hoys'
million-dollar glass palace." If you will pull your pointed little head
out of the sand for a minute Stoyva, you would know that the gym
was built by students after the war raised as much money as they could
nnd since we»have the use of the gym we are paying ror it.
Stoyva crosses himseir up when he says In the editorial that the
reason the current type of budget allocation Is ln force Is that the
MAD constitutes a pressure group. Yet at Student Council Stoyva
raved about how "400 muscle-bound students" received nil the money
from MAD while his IjSE, with "over 1000 students" got the raw end of
the deal.
If MAD is a pressure group what do you call LSE. which printed
for distribution a pamphlet urging club members to come out to the
AMS meeting nnd cut MAD's budget? This same innocent LSE group
Is also contemplating publishing a one-page riyer to smear MAI) and
to justify LSE's stand.
Mr. Stoyva, the simon-pure little hoy who is attacking the tactics
of MAD, was highly embarassed when he was round rummaging through
the picture files of the Ubyssey Tuesday night looking for a picture to
be used Tor propaganda purposes in his proposed paper. All this
despite the fact that an AMS ruling was re-read at Student Council
warning any interested group that a paper could not be distributed on
the campus without Council approval.
Stoyva ends his editorial  by saying. "We appeal, therefore,  to all
.students who wish to end the domination of campus activities hitherto j nnd
exercised by the MAD pressure group." | tho
We uppeal. therefore, to all students to come out to the meeting
at noon today und to see which Is the pressure group.

Athletes To Battle LSE Bloc
In Fee Fight At Meeting
Today's general meeting will be the scene of a budget battle
between the Men's Athletic Directorate and the Literary and
Scientific Executive.
LSE seeks to cut MAD's budget and block the council-
recommended fee increase, while MAD will ask students to
support the increase so that they may receive the 31 per cent
of the proposed boost entitled to them by constitution.
MAD's share of the proposed increase would amount jto
approximately $3224. LSE wants $2000 for development of
club rooms.
MAD's basis for the requested increase is, according to
MAD president Gerry Main, support for the smaller teams,
who are forced to pay their own way in many instances.
Argument presented by LSE is that LSE is a much larger
group, benefitting more students, and consequently should be
entitled to a larger share of AMS fees. t
Athletes and 'Athletes' friends' will tangle with Literateurs
and Scientists over the entire issue at today's meeting.

\ LSE Demands Square Deal
, . . . 1,
LSE Opposes
MAD Fee Hike
The L.S.E. is opposing the increase in the present
A.M.S. fee as suggested by the Men's Athletic Directorate for
the following reasons:
• ■—' —— $ 1 The fee Increase 1b not necessary as more money than Is needed is going to athletics and with
>u i collocation of some of this money enAugh can be obtained for IjSE
and other AMS activities without
a fee increase.
2 The fee is already too large in
relation to the amount of benefit
drawn from It by most students
and ln relatiou to the financial resources to meet payment of It by
a significant number of students.
3 To the greatest possible extent students should be left free
to spend their money according to
their own discretion and not that
of the AMS treasurer. This, means
taking from Btudents the smallest
posible amount of money In feet.
4 Before a fee incrase Is Instituted an ^dependent inquiry
should be made Into reducing the
high administration costs of the
AMS to see if money can be saved.
Where Student
Fees Disappear
In order to decide whether
L.S.E. is getting a square deal
budget-wise it is necessary to
have an accurate picture of the
amount of money now going to
campus athletics.
1 Of the $16 that you pay to the
▲MS $3.10 goes directly to extramural athletics (that Is inter-collegiate athletics).
2 Another $5 of this $16 goes to
the War Memorial Gymnasium to
provide an athletic centre on the
campus almost unequalled in Canada.
I
3 A major portion of the $2000.
Accident Aneflt Fund of the AMS
goes to cover athletic Injuries and
must alsp be charged to student
contributions to athletics.
4 The administration of the uni
varsity takes from our fees at
least $5000 <a year to* subsidize tbe
athletic program (pays for Athletic Director, etc.)*ad possibly more.
This amount is as much a charge
oft the students as it would be if
It.came from our AMS fee.
Biased on a student body of 5200
students' this works out to:
From   AMS /fees $16,120
annual contribution to WMG 26,000
Accident 'Benefit Fund ' 3,000
From Administration 5,000
Total 49(120
This-works out to $9.41 per student, not counting gate receipts on
which the major portion of the
athletic program are based. Con
trast this with the position of LSE
remembering when doing mo the
relative amount of participation In
the programs of the two organizations and the contribution that
tbey nre making to campus life.
ADMINISTRATION COST    #
5 All students must pay. their
share of the administration cost
of the AMS program but when this
is done we do not believe that students should have to pay for the
activities whether or not they wish
them, can afford them, or are able
to attend them and this is what a
further increase would tend to result in.
6 To raise fees will mean subsidization of activities which have
not sufficient student Interest in
them to justify their existence and
generally in a further uneconomic
use of AMS funds.
PAY FOR VALUE
7 Students should only be required to pay for value received
and not be required to put up sums
of money which may interefere
with their ability to attend university.
For all these reasons und the
many others which you personally
will have, we urge you to attend
the general meeting and defeat
any proposal which would tend to
raise your student fees and, instead, support proposals which wU!
result in a more equitable distribution of the money you uow pay.
University Clubs
Make Contribution
We feel Justified ln asking ror a
more generous grant ror the political, international, and humanities clubs on the grounds that contributions they make to the university do not seem to have been
adequately recognized. In our
opinion, the issue at stake is u
matter of principle.
Contrary to what some people
think, the university Is more than
a place In which to play games.
Some of our friends whose intellectual nourishment seems to have
consisted of a steady diet of American funny-books, may indeed feel
that the basketball floor is the
heart of the campus. Fortunately,
there are differing opinions on this.
It might be worth mentioning that
merely   because   some   fresh-water
Typical Case
Of Club Needs
"At present the Parliamentary
Koruni Budget covers the cost of
participating in tiie McGoun Cup
competition. This involves send
ing a team to the Western Canadian universities, which absorbs
all our grant."
There arc numerous Pacific
•oast debuting tournaments in
which wc could participate if wc
had  a  little more  money.
We do not have one cent to devote to the public sp,'nkiiig class.
This group could have aids in the
form of films, tape recorder-^ etc.
if  there   was  a   ilttle  more  niouev,
college south or the border sacrifices every other activity in the
name of sport is certainly no reu-
son why we should do the same.
It has orten Tieen suggested that
this over-emphasis on sport Is a
necessary thing because of Its publicity value. We need to have winning teams to be able to hold up
our heads in the rest of the province.
If the most distinguished alumni
of the university happened fo be
muscle-men. this argument might
possibly hold water. However,
there are some benighted individuals who feel that If this university Is going to make a name
for itseir either in the world of
action or in the world of ideas it
is not going to he through the exploits   of   muscle-happy   athletes.
Consequently, the clubs within
the Literary and Scientific Executive feel justified In pressing for
n larger share of the budget. For
one thing the political clubs want
a place where they can set up their
libraries, a room where they can
get together for discussion meetings. The International clubs would
prefer a lounge for their use. The
humanities groups would like
some place also to meet for discussion groups. Other clubs Issuing periodicals need better facilities to carry out their publications  activities.
In view of these legitimate needs
the LSE feels justified in asking
for a larger share of nexl year's
budget.

Make '53 A Boom Year
For The Campus Clubs
The LSE appeals to campus
clubs to stand up for their
rights. To make sure your
club gets a square de*l for
next year attend the General
Meeting on Thursday. At this
meeting you will be able to
vote in a fair budget for
your club.
HELPFUL HINTS
FOR ATHLETES
The MAD will no doubt scream
to high heaven at any suggestion
of a budget cut. We shall ln ell
probability be informed that the
whole sports program will go on
the rocks next year If there Is a
reduction in their grunt.
Our view, however, Is that the
present allocation of studeut fees
Is unfair because a major portion
of these fees goes to a smell select group who according to the
MAD officials themselves, do not
number more than about 400 Individuals. The fifty or more clubs
within the LSE are doled out a
budget amounting to less than 20
percent of the sum received by the
MAD.
Mysteries Of AMS
Budget - Juggling
Athletics Spoiled Child
Of AMS Organizations
On Friday, March 13, the club presidents of the literary
and Scientific Executive voted against a general fee hike.
The prevailing attitude was that another fee increase would
only be a further step in making this a rich man's university,
What the LSE wants is a re-division of fees, not a general
increase.
In past years the LSE has usually lost out in the
mysterious process of budget-juggling. The athletes do not
seem to have done too badly, however. As a matter of
interest it might be pointed put that every student on the
campus still pays an annual $5 tribute to the sporting boys'
million dollar glass palace.
As far as we are concerned, the MAD has developed
into the spoiled child of the university. The greater part
of student fees go to bolster football games and the like.
The rest of us are turned loose to scramble for the leftovers.
Last year the LSE and the fifty or so clubs within it
received a magnanimous $3000. Men's athletics was forced
to scrape along on    16,000. Should we not, therefore, raise    v
our voices in humble prayer and give thanks to the Lord for
a fair-minded student government?
The reason that this type of budget allocation has been .
foisted on the students of the university is that in previous
years the MAD has constituted a well-organized pressure
group.  Consequently they have had things pretty much
their own way.
It should be pointed out that there is no God-given
reason why the MAD should get over five times as much as
LSE. There is nothing sacred about the proportions in
which the student fees are divided at the present time. AH
that is necessary is to vote an amendment to the Ostium
Plan at the Spring Meeting on Thursday the 19th.
We appeal, therefore, to all students who wish to end
the domination of campus activities hitherto exercised by
the MAD pressure bloc. By coming (Ait to the General
Meeting on Thursday, club members can sec to it that their
group gets a square deal for next year.
Money-making  Hints  For MAD
A further point is that the money
given to athletics does not appear
to benefit everybody interested In
sports. For example, the intramural
events, which are the only phase
of the athletic program where the
greater purt of the students actively participate, receive no official grant from the MAD. In our
view, this is an unjust division of
revenue/even within the ranks of
the MAT) itself. There appears to
be an undue emphasis on spectator sports. Consequently, a few individuals   become   the   pampered
playboys of the campus, the rest
function as bench warmers. However, we do not mean to scuttle
sports «t the university. We have
no personal grudge against the
people ln the MAD. Most of them
are nice boys. We have no objections to sports as such. But what
the majority or students object to
Is a sltuutton where they seem to
get very little In return for the
116 fee exacted annually by the
AMS. Consequently, we propose
a shift ln policy.
University Clubs
Need Bigger Grants
Many of the arm-chair economists from the MAD will
blandly point out that in this past year several clubs within the
LSE have not yet spent all the funds which were alloted to them.
What About The  Evergreen?
Whenever there Is any suggestion of trimming the MAD budget
there Is generally a cry raised to
khe errect that a reduced sports
program will metin dropping out
of the Evergreen Conference. Evidently staying In the Evergreen
Conference Is regarded as the end-
all and be-all ot university life.
The mere mention of these magic
words Is considered sufricieut to
stop all argument. However, as far
as the principle of the thing is
concerned, the LSE would be
equally justified iu demanding
IIS.D00 a year to cany on in the
.Hindustani  Debating. League.
It seems that a big sports machine has been built up ou the
university mid the student body is
now pormuneiitly saddled down
with the job of maintaining the
monster.
Our view Is thai the campus has
been (loin Inn tod loo long by the
MAI)  pressure   bloc,   it   Is  time  the
rest of the campus took a strong
stand against them. It is high time
the students get what they want,
not what the MAD thinks they
want.
An Idea which we offer for consideration by the MAD is to play
sports that are cheaper. If this1
falls, they eould perhaps use boxing us a money maker. Prize fights
will draw hig crowds if tbey are,
properly organized. What's more,
this action-packed sport is bloody
enough to provide even more
thrills to neiich warming mobs than
football. Hut tiie beauty of It all
is that the contestant?! require no
expensive' costumes.
\V resiling I-i another attraction
which could he offered. It is our
hope that the MAI) will he game
enough to venture "into this enterprise. We. on our part, would
only be loo happy to offer the services of Ihe Player's Club In directing   the   entertainment.
Hut the truth of the matter Is* —
that some of the grants received
this year were so meagre as to he
virtually useless. The Symphony
Society, for example, was given
a grant or $5". Us program for
the year was completely stymied.
This grant, then, was Just so much
"dead money." Naturally the group
would show a surplus, since there
was no point In spending even
what little it had received. The
LSE clubs have had their budgets
slashed so us to render them virtually inactive. Then some bright
person has afterwards accused
them of not being enterprising
enough.
The political clubs were given
only $10 each. The. humanities
groups such as the Historical Society, The Letters Club, The Economics Club and the Cercle l-'rau-
cais received absolutely nothing.
Considering the financial difficulties under which they have laboured, these organizations have,
neverthelss, done well. Put surelv
these grants aie no Indication of
their contribution to the campus or
of their worth to the university.
What the clubs would like is
this. The international groups desire a lounge for their use. The
political clubs are interested in
getting a room where they can set
up their libraries situ! also get together for discussion meetings. The
humanities would like a place
where they could meet for discussion groups and hi addition serve
coffee Kind other refreshments. A
room which clubs could use for
their publishing work is another
project, and one which
facilitate   (he   work    | |u<j|
of those clubs  which  issue periodicals.
It. is iu view of these legitimate
needs then, that the LSE feels
justified in pressing for a largi r
grant   ne\i   year. small.

Where The
Money Goes
Last year Men's Athletics received over $111,000. Apparently.
much or this does not go directly
lo sport, however. More than half
this sum was earmarked for ad;
ministration purposes.
On the other hand, the sporting
boys maintain that the LSE does
not have to bear nearly as heavy
fixed costs. The clubs, they say,
htive the entire facilities of the
AMS office ut their disposal for
nothing. This would all be very
nice ir it were so, but It is an Illusion which exists only In the
minds of our friends from tlm
MAD. As the executive of any club
can testify, printing or mlmeo
graphing done at the AMS office
must be paid for. Furthermore,
postage costs and other Incidentals
must he horn hy the Individual
clubs. The only item which we receive without charge ure the clerical services of the AMS of flea.
According to the MAI), « cut lu
their grant would endanger the
administrative system which tboy
have built up. i'rankly, this Is %
rather poor excuse. If they havfl
created their own little bureaucracy, the Job of maintaining It is
lookout, not ours. There Is
no good reason why every student
:in the campus should he forced to
contribute the largest pari of his
fees to a remote organization, the
inajorltv of whose services go to a.
elect   group.
