It's umbrellas and long underwear for the next two
weeks. '
The weatherman warned
The Ubyssey Thursday that
temperatures would be subnormal and rainfall would be
above average until mid-October.
His information comes from
the Dominion Public Weather
bureau's long range forecast.
The Alma Mater Society will
now require only 10 per cent
of its members to form a
A referendum held Thursday
to reduce the quorum from 15
per cent of the Society members
to 10 per cent passed by a vote
of 2,678 to 826.
The business of a general
meeting can now be carried out
with a quorum of 10 per cent of
the student body.
First vice-president Peter
Shepard said he was grateful to
the students for showing their
confidence in student council.
He said he hopes students will
turn out to the General Meeting
Oct. 18 to make up a quorum.
Although only a two-thirds
majority was needed to change
the constitution, the students
voted 76 per cent in favour.
The extra polling stations in
the Armory only attracted 600
voters out of the 3508.
Returning officer Peter Lea.sk
said the building was so crowded
students couldn't make use of
voting facilities.
The fact it was Clubs'' Day
had no effect on the high return at the polls."
All stations reported an in-
favor vote, with only four votes
Leask informed The Ubyssey
at 3 p.m. Thursday that he was
sure the referendum would be
valid. He had checked all the
polling booths and found that
the necessary 15 per cent of winter session students had turned
out to the polls.
The general meeting on October 18 will require only 1,330
students to pass necessary Society business.
OFF INTO THE SUNSET go these two Frosh, who have just
joined Aqua-Soc, the campus skindiving club, at Clubs Day.
They denied the outfits were designed to get to C-lot in a dry
condition. The gentleman also denied the mark on his aqualung had pny symbolic significance.

Meal prices in the Auditorium cafeteria and bus stop cafe
have climbed five cents.
Miss R. S. Blair, director of Food Services, said Thursday
that entrees which were 40 and 60 cents last year have been
raised to 45 and 65 cents.
She denied this was a result of the new Brock Hall Cafeteria "extension, and refused to give a reason for the increase.

. . . seeks grant
Board gives okay
for second time
The Board of Governors has given architects the go-ahead
to draw up plans for the new winter sports arena — again.
At its last meeting, the
Board also approved, in princ>
ple, construction of the arena—
if it can be done for $500,000.
The Alma Mater Society,
which received construction
estimates says it can.
It was the second time the
board had gone through the
procedure of approving submission of bulding plans and construction of a $500,000 building.
The original plans, drawn last
winter and submitted to the
University this spring were
found to be too elaborate. Construction firms said thoy
couldn't bulid the sports complex for less than $l1/4 million.
The original drawings were
submitted by architects Thompson, Berwick and Pratt, but this
time they will be submitted by
a Victoria firm.
The Island company is the
same firm which built the
Esquimalt Sports a r e n a—a
building similar to the one UBC
requires—for just over $300,-
The federal and provincial
governments might also grant
the AMS an additional $75,000
for the building through the
winter works program.
UBC delegates to the National Federation of Canadian University Students Congress in
Sherbrooke, Que., said they will
ask Minister of Public Works
Davie Fulton for the grant when
they visit Ottawa this weekend.
The delegation is led by student council president Doug
To date, the AMS has had a
hard struggle to get the arena
project underway.
After the plans drawn up last
spring were scrapped the proposed site east of the stadium
had to be changed.
President John Macdonald's
campus development plan had
earmarked the area for a physics and chemistry complex.
But the site was re-located to
the south end of 'C Lot.
Peter Shepard, acting president of the AMS, said the
governor's approval means the
arena is at last a reality.
Courses set today
no more escapes!
Today   is  the   last  day  for
course changes.
The registrar's office warns
that a student will automatically fail any course he drops
after   Friday.   The   office   is
open from 9 a.m. to 5 p:m.
says Papke
Better security is needed for
night deposits of AMS funds
said Bernie Papke, Co-ordinator
of Student Activities, Thursday.
"The present system is clearly inadequate," said Pa.pke, commenting on the last weekend's
theft of $463 from the AMS office.
Receipts from evening events
are placed in cash boxes inside
a locked steel cabinet with
heavy metal doors. These doors
were forced open with apparent
ease by the Sunday morning
thieves, he said.
Most AMS money is kept inside a combination safe in the
fireproof vault located in the
office, Papke said.
The vault cannot be opened
during the evening for night deposits.
"We are hoping to persuade
one of the campus banks to install a night depository. This
would solve all our problems,"
Papke concluded.
The thieves are still at large
and little headway is being
made on the case, RMCP officials told The Ubyssey Thursday. Page 2

Wo tales of sound and fury
The session is now two weeks old and the
prevailing complacency is oppressive.
The leftists are mute. The rightists have
disappeared from the face of the cainpus. No
one has .set up a soapbox in Buchanan plaza to
spout erudite ideas on God, love or politics.
Free speech is being used as if it cost money.
Things aren't the same everywhere, though.
In many parts of the world people are demanding, winning and using their rights of free
One of the areas, surprisingly at first, is in
the freedom-loving USA — the University of
California at Berkeley.
In exchange papers The Ubyssey received
from U. of Cal., we learn that students — in
a fight which has stretched over 30 years —
have finally won the right to free speech on
the campus.
That does not mean that any speaker can
come and speak to students—he might be a
rabble rouser the administration says — but
any student can go to the free ^speech area, a
remote plaza on-the Berkeley campus, and say
anything he wishes.
It sounds fumny in this day and age but the
situation on the Berkeley campus is representative of the conditions at many American
Many American campuses ban outside
speakers who are considered "dangerous."
Says the Daily CaUfexmian, "such speakers
are thought (by the administration) to be
inimical to the unemotional seeking of 'truth' or
'a biased tipper of the scales, and therefore
dangerous to the academic process of teaching
students how to look at all sides of an issue
before making up their minds."
But the stated goal and actions of these
administrations are obviously opposites. How,
we wonder, can students get all sides of an
issue when certain speakers are not allowed
to have their say.
Many.Canadian students forget the privileges they enjoy, unbridled by administration
Maybe what UBC needs is a good, stiff—
but short—dose of administration control over
We're all dupes
The constitutional right of free speech loses
some of its meaning when we hear the American Communists cannot speak on the University campuses — places where one's education
is to be furthered.
The regents' ruling also assumes that listeners will be converted to Communist way: we
hope that our educational system and our
society has instilled in us certain principles by
which we may choose freedom as opposed to
tyranny, equality as opposed to regimentation.
We hope students do not need the protection the regents seem so willing to provide,
for if students do, then our society has failed
in teaching us traditional democratic principles
of tolerance, fairness, and equality.

Not a sideshow to be seen
Every club's a winner on Clubs Day.
Each organization has more to offer, is more
active, has better members and is just plain
better than any other elub on campus.
This is the message that hundreds of executives were handing out to thousands of prospective members (sometimes called "suckers")
in the Armory Thursday.
Music and shouting assailed the ear. Colorful
and not so colorful displays competed for attention.
• Arid thousands were-buffeted and pummel-
ed as-they pushed their way through the crowded buildings to get a glance at what the clubs
had to offer.
And every club looked good. But none stood
There was no Free Love Society to offer
the mysterious.
No Allied Integrity Front to challenge the
traditional political clubs. Even the Communists are conservative on this campus.
There was music, dancing, singing — and
UBC Radio live and in color. But something
was missing. It was like a carnival without sideshows.
Everything   was   respectable.   The   rebels
weren't in evidence.
All the clubs were winners. But the students were the losers.

Yours   truly,
Engineers reforming
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We the second year Engineers, wish to voice our disgust at the appalling display of
disrespect shown on Wednesday noon by several members
of other faculties.
As our stunt was not directed at other faculties, but
re.ther was intended to show
our disapproval of the recently adopted parking regulations, we assumed that the
other faculties would be sympathetic with our cause.
However, the destruction of
our statue, would seem to indi
cate that such was not the case,
but  we would like to believe
that  this action  is not  indicative of the feelings of the majority of the student body.
Yours truly,
President,   Second
Year Engineers.
Hypocrite writers
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I would like to refer to the
'Holier than thou' attitude
taken by the women in your
September 24 edition Letters
to the Editor, who were crusading against people that discriminate—i.e. "Thank God I'm
not one of them," presumably
meaning that the writer does
not discriminate.
May I say then, if that is so,
you   are   not   a  human  being,
and that by wishing to smother
what unfortunately happens to
be a spontaneous feeling in
human nature, you will foster
nothing but hypocrisy.
To use a homely analogy,
every action one does, whether
it be choosing a red or green
pencil,—the choice results in
one's own preference.
Granted, when human feelings can be hurt, as in the case
of choosing humans of different colour, it is extremely
chagrined, and undoubtedly
morally wrong (although morality is a relative matter).
Discrimination    itself    however,     is     every    individual's
right,    and    must   be    curbed
only   when  the   exercising   of
one's   right   impedes   someone
else from exercising theirs.
Yours truly,

And what happened?
A smile is such an easy
thing yet it provokes an almost
unlimited variety of reactions.
You're walking along thinking of something amusing
which happened a couple of
days ago and the memory
makes you smile.
Of course a complete
stranger walking toward you
sees the smile and egotistically
succumbing to a delusion of
self-reference assumes you are
smiling at him (or her).

You don't bother to wait around

But there are also sly smiles,
and hypocritical smiles and
smiles with hidden motives and
secret ends.
Some of these are really
rather funny.
It's amusing to watch how
skillfully people can turn them
on and off, and vary them
from smile to ear-reaching efforts.
A smile can make happiness
more fun and it can also make

rugger win
sure to have
his way
Albert Laithwaite is trying
to figure out a way in which
his two top rugby teams can
win their first game.
The problem has left the
UBC rugby coach somewhere between tears and smiles because
the two teams in question—the
Birds and Braves—meet each
other in the Vancouver League's
first division opener next Saturday.
Observers suggest that he
has a 100 per cent chance of
achieving one victory with
equal odds for a loss. On the
other hand, he could split 50-50,
but this solution won't satisfy
The turmoil multiplies when
the second division gets underway with three UBC teams in
the running—Physical Education, Frosh I and Frosh II.
Laithwaite's troubles began
when a whopping 125 players
showed up for practices and ever
since he has been fluctuating
between more strings or more
Laithwaite, who is in his 13th
year of coaching at UBC, has
other problems, too, like how
to replace Roy Bianco, Bill
Dubois, Dave Lee, Peter Bugg,
John Phillips and Dave Gibbs,
who graduated last year.
But Laithwaite is counting
on some new names to fill out
the  ranks.
These include Dick Haynes
from Western Washington and
Bill McArthur, an experienced
player from New Zealand.
Among the veterans returning
are John Grange and Jim Beck
in the scrum and Doug Sturrock
at scrum half.
The Birds will also be playing in the tentatively-named
Pacific Coast Intercollegiate
Conference in addition to the
city league.
The conference will be made
up of six teams—Oregon State,
the University of Oregon, Western Washington, Victoria College, Royal Roads and UBC.
Operation is scheduled to begin
in January.
Other events slated for next
term include the McKechnie
and   World   Cup   series..   The
McKechnie Cup game is set for
Jan. 26.
Exhibition games will also be
played against UCLA.
Dave Ure, a 6'2" 210-pound
member of last year's Birds,
has accepted an offer to play
for the Canadian all-star team
that travels to Europe next
month . . . the team leaves next
week for England.

make the trip because of injuries. Tonis Tutti and Jim Olafson, both keys in Gnups plans,
are two of the blanks in t h e
All-star end Dave Barker will
also absent himself from the
lineup. Barker, who suffered a
shoulder injury last summer, has
been working out daily and is
expected to join the team next
But Gnup is more concerned
with Portland back Bo-Bo White
and the' means of stopping him
Saturday. White, an all-conference ace last year, is touted as
one of the hardest runners in the
pugnacious . northwest conference of small colleges.
Ghup was cautious when it
came to predictions, but found
the appropriate answer in the
'Coaches Guide To Safe Statements'. "We expect a tough bat*
tie every time we play," he said.
