UBC Not Sure Of
Government Grant
Here are President N.A.M. MacKenzie's replies to the
, questions asked in Friday's front-page Ubyssey editorial.
They were given to the paper's editors in -an hour-long
i  ejonferenee Friday afternoon.
First, the administration did hot attempt to keep the fee increase
"under wraps" until the end of the term when protests could not be
The Board of Governors actually passed the fee increase April I.
* Dr. MacKenzie conceded that the calendar "might have been in
type before this" but he added: "If it was the nit was with the full
realisation that it might have to be altered later."
Second, the university Is not sure, even yet, as to whether or not
It will actually get its federal government grant.
It is true that the money was voted by parliament last spring and
that the university knew early ln the year that such a vote was
probable but there are snags on the distribution problem which may
prevent the university from getting its money.
• t>r. MacKensle describes the chances tis "100 to one against our not
\ getting it" but he feels that "considerable caution must be exercised."
Third, the university has made "tentative committments" of about
|«M,000 of the expected 1600,000 grant.
If the grant doe» oome through a fee decrease should be possible.
be withdrawn snd university can 'muddle through."
If the grant doe* come through a tee decreases should be possible.
I (The university received about 9160,000 from the lee increase this
j   fear.)
Of tthe remaining university budget enrollment—about 300 lower
.   tfcaa Intloipated—could at«*h 976.000 from the tentative budget and Dr.
MaoKensle says the margin Is "»llm."
In addition, Dr. MacKensle has promised a breakdown of the university's budget "sufficiently detailed to satisfy most ot the doubts
[> which have been raised."
Not Justified
Dr. MacKenzie has satisfied our major doubt.
We are convinced that there isiw "deep dark Machiavellian
plot" of the type envisaged by Mr. Buck.
We are convinced that the administration desires to keep enrollments up and to provide the maximum service possible.
We are not, however, convinced that the administration's tactics
are justified.
Dr. MacKenzie did not deny that the calendar was In print long
before the end of the term.
He was careful not to deny that the administration was fairly certain of a fee Increase long before lt was announced.
Students should at least have been Informed that the matter was
under consideration.
He attributed the failure of the administration "to rake the federal
grant Into consideration to "caution."'
No one will doubt that caution was needed.
But why not leave the fee increase until Christmas this year? Why
foist it on students and keep it in the dark?
Students have proved that they are willing to listen to the administration's arguments—if the argument* are presented.
Secrecy only raises suspicious of dark and underhanded dealings
end students cannot be blamed if they, doubt the sincerity of an
adminietratlon whlah leaves them ln the dark.
A vote of non-confidencje in
Vaughn Lyon, president of thi
Alma Mater Society was defeated at the student council
meting Tuesday nite.
The non-confidence motion
by Jack Lintott, co-ordinator,
seconded by Ted Lee, was voted down unanimously following a one hour discussion, and
two hours of adjournment
In opposition to the move John
de Wolf demanded an explanation
und asked what the charges were.
He accused rebellious councillors
of petty jealousy.
"I have never heard of anything
so low," stated Phil Anderson.
"This whole dirty deal stinks'. How
can you criticise when all summer
you have done absolutely nothing
while we worked to fulfill our
tittles to the council."
Lyon was accused ot Interefer-
ence in the -Mussoc director appointment, sending unwarranted
ters to the adminietratlon, and ot
suspicious motives. None of these
charges were substantiated.
The letters In question were
shown to contain no statements
of policy and to be mere requests
for information.
Lyon was also charged with
acting over the heads of councillors
in delaying orders for council

Removal Of Editor

Lyon explained that he had retracted the statement at once and

Onco Upon a Time
Once upon a time the president of the
Student Liberal Glub was elected president
of the Alma Meter Society.
He resigned, of course, from his political
club job the day after Ate election because
it was thought that it wouldn't be quite right
for the president ol the Alma Mater -Society
to be involved in "dirty" politics.
Politics, as almost everybody knows, are
always "dirty." 'Politician" is almost as nasty a word to most Canadians as "Peaoe" is
to the edilor of a Hearst newspaper.
These were -those, naturally enough, who
figured thert tthe j-ffeaident^eiect of the Alma
Mater Society hoped one day to bacome
prime minister. And, of counts, there were
those who had it on reliable authority that
lhe hoped to -become liquor .commissioner for
the province of British Columbia.
The students who lacked inside dope that
the election had been a sharp political deal
from the beginning roughly added ^p to just
about the same figure as the one which could
have been used to describe the membership
of the Student Liberal Club.
Came the beginning df the new *erm and
the whole campus was primed for -trouble
with a capital "T".
It wasn't long before everybody found out
that tiie new president had heaved out the
proposed executive of the International Student Service Committee nominated by the
retiring committee j*nd added # the top of
the group a "political friend" of the new
A little checking, of course, would have
revealed that the appointment was lhe work
mostly of council members who had no political connections at all and that the presi
dent had had almost' nothing to do with it.
A couple of weeks later it was mooted
that the president had been busy writing letters to all aorta of official* without Hie sanction of council.
Anybody who had looked closely would
have learned that the 'etterg wort Just requests for a little information but councillors
who much too busy doing other things *o iind
out anything so obvious.
Meanwhile student affairs were progressing more -favorably than they ever bad before. # ...
■But Jour councilors got together «ad decided feat the president was pushing «fae» M
over the map. They didn't know Just how or
why of here mind y<Ju but they got toge&er
Willi four more—and nobody pals to get
pushed aU over the map.
So *hey moved, last night, a vote of non-
confidence in the president.
Everybody called everybody else a lot
of dirty names for Quite a while.
And then the president of the LSE, the
treasurer and ihe editor4n-dbief of -the publications board began to ask just what «dl this
was about.
Since there were no answers, they got
Sullen looks became the order of the
Then hour-and-half-adjournments.
Then die vote as called.
Nobody voted for the motion.
Somebody moved that ,the whole thing
be stricken from the minutes.
Naturally, everbody thought that was a
great idea.

And All That    By Les Armour
Herman F. *1tz-plffle, ace
correspondent for Disjointed
Press, at disconsolately In the
Rltz  bar.
•Nothing, he reflected, ever
happened In Buenes Aires.
The last big story he could
remember, was the one about
the revolution ln Paraguay.
It had, of course, been amusing to sit in his Buenes Aires.,,
hotel room and write eyewitness accounts about tiny children being burned to a crisp
with jellied gasoline, about the
tears that poured in rivers
down the peasant woman's face
as she sat chained to & wall
while the revolutionists raped
her   16-year-old   daughter.
He had not even minded being 200 miles away from these
imaginary occurences. A reporter must have sharp vision. A
■mere 200 miles ls nothing.
But lately, he thought, things
had been frightfully dull.
A barman slipped over to the
table and handed him a slip of
Herman hated being called
away in the middle of his mid-
morning drink and It wsa only
with reluctance that he followed the barman out to the telephone.
"Hello," he said with lrrlta
tion.  "Pits-piffle  here."
"Senior Fltztylffle? This ls
the government information office. President Peron wishes
to announce that there is a
"Ah yes," said a Fltz-piffle.
"A revolution . .'. The revolutionaries are, of course, march-
they are Communists and they
ipg on the capital. Naturally
have been been put down smartly by the government. The ca-
sulty lists will be announced
"Quite," said the sauve voice
of the government. "You understand of course that they
will be put down so rapidly
that no one will ever see them.
There will be no. trouble ln the
streets. A mass rally of the
shirtless ones will be outside
the government offices shortly.
We will have a full report on
the rally for you this afternoon.''
"Perfect," opined Disjoint-
ed's  South   American   eye.   "1
will drop over and pick up the
details trom you. You want, of
course, lots of color."
"Well," rejoined the government. "Go easy on the blood.
We don't want the regime to
look nasty. The leaders of the
plot will be executed, of course.
But you must understand that
the government cannot allow
Its citizens to be harmed ln any
way by the revolution. Your
cheque, you understand, will
be ready Saturday.'1
"Exactly. No blood. Lots of
Commies. No trouble in the
street. Dirty, dark machiavellian stuff behind the scenes.
Quotes later, of course, from
revolutionary leaders who have
been pardoned or gone into
brief exile."
Fitz-plffle returned to his table
and ordered a double-Scotch.
Nice stuff this. No fuss, no
muss. Page one back heme. A
bonus and, of course, a* fat
check from Peron.
Very nice. Not such a bad
beat this after all. But what,
he wondered, If there should
be a real fevolution some day?
The Scholarship Included
transportation free board and
room, free tuition and some
pocket money. '
When I arrived in Toronto
after a pleasant trip on an
American student ship, it was
not like coming into a foreign
city. That's when I began fo
realise the full value ot an
International seminar.
I 'had friends In what was
formerly an enemy country.
Bo It was not only a dream,
those few weeks at tbe seminar, but an accomplishment
of an understanding which
seems so rare In our days.
After my first Impression,
I foeadad tor Vancouver. The
fo,ur days on ihe train, which
are for most Canadians a nuisance, were some of the most
exciting days of my life.
"Is is -possible," I kept asking my fellow student from
Hamburg. "Is is possible that
there are no houses, that there
are areas completely untouched?" I could haye looked 'for
weeks on the lovely Ontario
bills or on the flat but fascinating prairies. It Is just like
Clod's own country.
In V&ncouver, we were received by the ISS committee.
Everything was prepared and
arranged for us. We -bad so
many discussions with the students In the first few days that
t always went to bed tired
By tbe difficult process of
registration 3 found out that
the Canadian university system i» quite different trom
ours. Our courses lead to the
doctor's degree and it is not
common practice to leave the
university before this final examination.
Thus we have no sharp distinction between undergraduate and graduate studies.
We have no written examinations at the end of each term,
we only take an Intermediate
exam at the end of four or five
terms, and the final exam.
Another difference in the
Canadian university Ufe is the
time schedule. We split up
our year Into a winter and a
summer term with two or three
months holidays in between.
This has the disadvantage of
there being scarcely a possibility to find a decent job during the holidays.
Thus a good number of able
students who cannot afford to
finance   their  studies,   though
the costs are less at the
German univerlties, are unable
lo  continue  their  education.
The first day of classes
gave me an insight into the
work at a Canadian university.
1 have never seen so many
students with open note books,
pencils running up and down
the pages hastily making notes.
So it is not true what everybody told me about the easygoing American university lite.
No, jt is not true, quite the
contrary. Students work more
at the Canadian universities.
That does not mean that the
German university life is an
easy one. But Ire pick out of
cm* lectures what seems Important and interesting, and
work it out during our holidays
as most of the students do act
have to earn their own Hying.
NO CfiH*Ut
Another novelty ot the Unl*
verslty of British Columbia was
the campus. Most of tbe German universities do not have a
oampuB. Tbe university buildings are scattered ln the city
and there are ho student residences. Therefore you find
only a few contacts with students of other faculties.
• How different In Vancouver!
During the lunch hour you have
the opportunity to meet srta-
dents of all faculties and I had
so many discussion with a
fruitful interchange of ideas
that these lunch hours will be
my favorite memories ot tbe
Canadian student life.
If It were only for the personal enrichment, we would
•money to arrange scholarships,

As 1 see it this exchange is
one way to support the great
program of the United Nations

only way out of our political
It looks, perhaps, like a
minor thing, but now chore ls
a link between the University
of British Columbia and the
University of Hamburg, and
considering the other exchango
programs ot ISS, there are
many of these small links.
This ls only a start, but I
am sure we will enlarge our
program and for years to come
will be many people to help
foster International understanding.
I want to express my thanks
to all the people who made my
scholarship possible and who
helped me during my stay ln
Canada, people who spared
many, many hours In an unselfish way.
If I wanted to name them
all, it would be a long list, but
I want to express my thanks
especially to Professor Lyuch,
chairman of the fftB 'In Toronto, Patrick Daniels, the national secretary of the I8S,
Peter de Vooght and the stl-
dents of the ISS Committee

they have played.

All f6ur were students at the
Royal Academy of Music in London when they formed the quartette.
"We were very young and very,
very rash, you know," says Griller,
first violinist and founder ot the
group. "No one in his right mind
would have picked a year like 1929
to form a chamber-music ensemble."

the only consolation is that they

The display can only be blamed
on lack of condition and Pete fig-

Varsity's first and only goal about
fifteen minutes after the start of

similar shot about ten minutes
from time.
Meawhtle the UBC team journeyed to North Van to suffer a 6-1 setback. Hugh Fltzpatrick scored the
