Concerted  Effort
(This is the second of two editorials on the athletic
'       situation at UBC.)
Two questions immediately arise whenever it is suggested
that UBC withdraw from the Evergreen Conference. In what
Conference will the two major sports, football and basketball,
compete? What will happen to the minor sports program?
A Western Canada Conference is the place where UBC
should be competing. Immediately the cry arises that such a
Conference is financially unworkable; that neither the Universities of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba now play
football; and that anyway the students of those universities
aren't interested in such a Conference.
"We believe that a Western Conference would have a tremendous natural appeal both here in Vancouver and on the
prairies. The interest and the crowds at the McGill and Toronto games showed that the students and public are interested
in Canadian university competition. For the first two years
such a Conference would probably lose money but we find
it impossible to believe that it cannot be made a solid success.
It would not take the three prairie universities more than
two years to field football teams. By the way the prairie junior
teams inn over Vancouver's junior teams it cannot be said
that they lack football talent. In the initial year or two of
such a Conference UBC may not find much competition but
to say that would always be the case is utter nonsense.
To say that the prairie universities are not interested in
such a Conference is just not true. The idea has never been
widely publicized. If such a Conference was actually formed
and football teams organized great interest would naturally
spring up.
We are not advocating that UBC withdraw immediately
from the Evergreen Conference. But we do say that UBC
should begin immediately to take the lead in the formation of
a Western Conference. With a concerted effort by the right
parties such a Conference could be a reality within three years.
And by a concerted effort we don't mean the members of the
Men's Athletic Committee sitting around at a meeting, stroking
their chins and saying, "It's not a bad idea but it's unfeasible."
The sports other than football and basketball would not
suffer one iota by UBC's leaving the Evergreen Conference.
Rugby is firmly entrenched and does not compete in the
Evergreen Conference. The swimming, tennis, golf and track
teams take part in one single solitary Conference meet each
spring. But in addition they have from seven to ten other
meets scheduled for them.
Year after year this university has trudged wearily along
in the Evergreen Conference. Within three years there is no
reason, except perhaps lack ot initiative, why UBC should
not be in a Western Canada Conference.
(Dean of Arts and Science, S. N. F. Chani contributes here the second of a series of
articles discussing ihe present generation. Carlos Kruytboich, a student of sociology, contributed the first article. "Strange Generation," in she October 27 issue. Mere will follow.)
By DEAN S. N. F. CHANT
Carlos Kruytbosch's Interesting article in .this series was titled "Strange Generation."
All that need be added is a question mark in order to ask whether or not thcwpresent feneration of students is a strange generation, Strangness is not a feature that anything possesses.
Things merely appear strange according to one's viewpoint. What is strange to one person
may not be strange to another. Certain practices of the South Sea Islanders may seem strange
to us, but they doubtless seem very commonplace to the Islanders. Youth is the period of
one's life when strangeness has most appeal; but by the time one belongs to the older generation, nothing in later is ever as astonishing as some of the things that happened when one
was "young and gay." If you wish to prove this for yourself all you need do is listen to an
older person as he recounts the experiences of his. youth.
To consider oneself to be
stranger than one is, is not a
very*healthy sign in that it may
lead to the cultivation Of
strangeness for its own sake.
To look upon strangeness as a
mark of distinction tends to
certain affectations, such as the
folly and the pseudo-radicalism of the 1920's. On the other
hand to be strange and not
know it is probably even more
unhealthy because it implies
that one is incapable of judging one's own actions.
So to return to our question:
is the present generation
strange? It all depends upon
what you mean. If you mean
are the members of this generation an odder or a poorer
lot than previous generations,
the answer is an emphatic, NO.
If you mean are they harder
to understand than previous
generations the answer is still,
NO. If .you mean are they dif*
ferent from previous generations the answer is, YES. Each
generation Ls different from
those that have gone before;
otherwise the human race
would show no progress. As I
once heard Bernard Shaw say
«-
during a debate with Hilaire
Belloc, "Thank God, children
do not grow up to be like their
parents". Some parents seem
to expect and hope that they
will, but I agree with Shaw.
There is some question, how*
ever, as to whether or not certain generations seem stranger
than others. I believe they do
because human ways change
more quickly during certain
periods of history than during
others. The age in which we
live is one of rapid change,
and if anything the pace is
quickening, so that if this generation is thought to be strange
there are stranger ones to
como. If you think your generation is strange just try to
imagine what your greatgrandchildren will be like.
Young people seldom think
that they will soon become the
older generation, but they will.
Can a member of an older
generation notice any distinctive features of the present,
younger generation? Perhaps a
few, but as I remarked, nothing
ia very strange to us oldster*
any more. Carlos Kruytbotch

Longstaffe
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I have heard hypocritical
statements before, • but the
statement of our illustrious
council member, Mr. R. Longstaffe ("a poor show that has
no place on campus," etc.)
readies a new high.
At the meeting on Tuesday
I sat two rows behind Mr.
Longstaffe and some of his fellow cronies, and I can assure
you that his actions were just
as "irresponsible" as the rest. t
If he is so concerned about the
behaviour of the students, and
the impression that they make,
why didn't he get up at the
meeting and say so, instead of
hooting and laughing, and then
hiding behind a fashionable
mark of tolerance.
I wonder if Mr. Longstaffe
would care to make a statement
concerning his own behaviour.
Yours sincerely,
Y, E. MOORE,

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
It  would  appear  that  "the
general campus opinion stated
—'if the parade . . .aditorium' "
does not uphold any faith in
the conduct of the student
body. And, why the negative
implication that things may get
out of hand? Surely a positive
approach would be a much mor&
effective and sound method of
influence than using these precatory or threatening statements.
The alumni should be capable of maintaining its own
respectable equilibrium, and we
reason that the students could
follow likewise. But, to spur
the student body into a defensive state by negative exhortion
Js worse than bad psychology,
—it is self-mutilation.
Yours truly,
J. Caula-s.
Thanks
Editor. The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
May we, through your columns, express our heart-felt
thanks to the students for their
fine response to the search lor
our son.
We are deeply grateful.
Yours sincerely,
Alee and Kathleen Ellett.
enquiry" aa "tbe meet hopeful
and the most dangerous -attitude ef this generation". X
agree, but I prefer the term
"moderation'' to "tolerance"
because it is mere inclusive
and implies less in the way of
apathy. That tbe present generation strives fer tolerance is
seen ia their objection to die*
crimination.
In my day tbe only*eriticlsm
of fraternities was their interference in athletics: no one
bothered about their discriminating, clauses. Moreover,
young people today show moderation in that they do not
carry their foolery to the same
extremes as some of their par*
ents did in the "age of coon-
skin coats"—Bellingham notwithstanding. They may not
write or spell any better but
they do have better judgment,
.and some of this at least can
be attributed to modern education, in spite of some of the
older generation's criticism
of it.
• The present generation of
students is a diligent one. They
work just as hard at their
studies as any students before
them, and perhaps even a little
more than some, but in add^
tion they want to work in the
summers instead of loafing
about on a beach. This may be
forced upon them to some extent, because modern parents
can no, longer dole out the
kind oi' pocket money that modern young people require for
entertainment. In any case
they t,o to work to earn their
own ruoney with a right good
will—or at least a better will
than used to be the case. The
present generation also keeps
very late hours, but let us not
go into that.
Of course any generation includes many different types,
good, bad and indifferent.
Every generation has its quota
of oafs and zanies. But in general I bolieve*tbat the present
gem -nt.ion is definitely one of
the er ones. The members
of j„ «ire somewhat less formal
both in their relationships to
one another and to older
people. Occasionally I am
greeted on the campus by hi
dean"—a form of salutation of
which I fully approve — but
when I was a student one was
careful to look the other way
when the dean passed, and one
raised one's hat to the president—but no one wears a ti.'t
any more. The present generation is friendly and polite. On
the oth^r hand they do scatter
« lot of litter about and make
pathways across the ear;pus.
However, if the latter ls the
worst that can be said of them,
they are not so bad. "Ye are
the salt oi the earth/' CNR OFFERS SPECIAL RATES FOR

Tories Defeated
Oh Monopoly Bill
Monopolizing Arts 100 for over two hours Thursday, Campus political leaders downed the Conservative Government's
BUI to establish an independent Commission to control radio
broadcasting in Canada, 26-21.
A	
Raven On
Sale Soon
Appropriately, the controversy raged over the danger of
monopoly. Prime Minister Phil
Govan charged that, the CBC
is monopolizing Canadian Radio
at the expense of Independent
Stations and Canadian Free En-
terprize.
Govan's B i 11,# proposed by
Murray Roblin, stated that the
principles of free speech are
" violated by the CBC monopoly,
and that CBC is not fulfilling
its purpose in promoting a distinctively Canadian culture.
The Government's Bill was to
• establish a commission to control the establishment, operation, and character of all broad-
easting stations across Canada.
Further, the Commission was to
prescribe the time allotment to
political parties, and to advertising on Canadian stations.
Howard Johnston, Socred
Speaker, asked how such control could help the private stations.
Liberal President, Daryll Anderson, charged that the sweeping powers of the commission
far exceeded present CBC control, "The bill is ludicrous, coercive, and prohibiting," he
said. "It discriminates against
strong political parties, and opposes free enterprise and democratic principles."

TRAGEDY
AVERTED
Johnnie Loveless, 2nd year
Commerce student, was re-,
centiy prevented from
throwing himself into tbe
lake in front of the library <
by the timely intervention;
of Miss Marjorie Duxbury.
Johnnie had just received
his mid-term results. They
made it obvious he would
have to spend more time
studying. "I already study
22 hours a day. Two hours
a day I sleep (during lectures). When I finally realized there was no more time
I just gave up."
Miss Duxbury, after point-
r
ing out that the ice was too
thick to break with his head,
gave him new hope by telling him, "You can do twice
as much studying in the
same time if you learn to
read skillfully. You can
learn this important skill in
just a few weeks at the
Westren Reading Laboratory, at 939 Hornby Street.
Telephone TAtlow 2918."
Applications for the Corps
are continuing to be taken.
All interested please contact
Major G Hartling, Resident
Staff Officer in the COTC
Orderly Room, the Armoury.
Johnnie did so. Already
he has time to study, sleep,
eat, watch George Gobels
on TV, and also to regain his
status as a junior Casanovo.
And yet he is studying more
than he did before. If you
want to study more—in less
time, you can learn how too,
by phoning TA. 2918. CAF Won't

Coffee Yet
Acceptance by University authorities of the proposed "Ideal
cup of coffee" will not be auto-1
matic,   head   coffee-taster Mike \
Jeffery said today.
Thursday afternoon the report
Of the much publicized coffee
committee was unofficially presented to the University Food
Service Committee which, even
though partly composed of coffee-panel members, neither approved nor disapproved of the
change.
Monday night, Students Council is expected to approve the
coffee-tasters report.
After the approval is received,
the University Committee can
officially consider the proposed
change.
"If all goes well, the students
will receive a drinkable cup of
coffee  before  Christmas,"   Jef-j
fery said.
The "ideal cup of coffee" was
decided upon by a student-!
faculty panel of amateur coffee
tasters through a serias of taste
tests held during the past five
weeks.
Coffee-t asters investigated
brands, blends, and strengths of
various types, and probed methods of cleaning coffee-urns
before making their choice.

Engineer Jack McLean was
declared Canadian University
Spitting Champion at the
National finals on the Main
Mall Thursday noon.
The winner achieved a distance of thirty feet, five feet
more than the runner-up.
Judge Bob Wilcox provided
each of the six contestants
with a generous plug of specially imported Turkish chewing tobacco and a five-minute
warm-up preceded the finals.
Among the chewers was
council  president   Ron  Bray.
A runner-up in the contest, he
attributed his defeat to lack
of contest experience. "I have
not done much public spitting, "■he said.
Winner Maclean was presented with two bottles of beer
for his efforts.
Spectators on the finish line
were driven back by the contestants' prowess and retreated
with somewhat dampened
spirits.

Ubyssey Greased Pole Editors
The National Champion
Greased Pole Climber title went
unclaimed Thursday as contestants attempts were unsuccessful.
Dozens of hopeful contenders
slipped and slithered at the base
of the pole specially constructed
for the confpetition according
to the international greased
pole climber contest association's specifications.
At the top of the pole was a
specially built box containing a
roll of super-soft pink-tinted
toilet paper, presentation of
which to the judges would entitle the condidate to claim the
prize.
All attempts were fruitlese
however, and two engineers,
who hoped to reach the top the
easy way, one standing on the
other's shoulders, were Immediately disqualified.
Aggies  Nix
EUS  Victory
By JEAN WHITESIDE
Ubyssey Chariot Editor
A breath-taking race was run
Thursday as Engineers and Aggies roared down the Main Mall
in their specially-constructed
chariots, but a winner was not
officially determined.
Engineers claimed victory but
Aggies refused to recognize
them as winners.
"Aggies were disqualified
from the start," said an indignant engineer. "They had two
charioteers in their chariot. And
after all, the Romans never had
more than one Roman in their
chariots."
Aggie charioteers were
dressed in white togas and both
wore crowns of laurel. They
carried a stirrup pump and
drenched the onlookers, some
of whom were nearly run down
as the chariots roared by.
Spectators thronged the course
halfway through the race and
fought for the honor of pulling
the Aggie chariot. Several were
trampled to death as the crowd
went wild.

BARNACLE  BALL
Yo. ho, ho and a bottle of
rum. UNTD invites one and
all to come and splice the
mainbrace this Saturday at
their fifth annual barnacle
ball.
The dance, held at the
HMCS Discovery from 8:30
to 12, is "traditionally a good
party" complete with orchestra, refreshments and two
bars. Drinks will be three for
a dollar.
Tickets priced at just $2.50

cadet.
with chocolate cream pies.
Snatched from their cosy
corner in the Brock, Beck and
Longstaffe were carried off
by 40 Engineers as sacrifices
to the March of Dimes rally
on the Main Mall.
Auctioneer Bob Wilcox, Applied Science 4, regulated the
bidding and persuaded the
cheering mob to contribute
six dollars towards a pie for
Beck. There was fierce competition to see who could make
the last bid and have the privilege of smearing Beck.
Lesia Homola, leader of a
Home Ec conspiracy, won out
and gleefully heaved the pie in
Beck's woebegone face.
"There'll be no more Home
Ec editions of the Ubyssey,"
Beck was heard to mutter as
he ruefully tried to lick the
meringue  off his  chin,
A near riot broke out as
Sultan's henchmen led Long
staffe to the block.
Another bidding duel began, this time between the
Home Ec girls and the Engineers, who hate councillors
even more than they fear The
Ubyssey.
Although the Engineers supported Sultan's bidding with a
steady stream of nickels and
dimes, a group of determined
Home Economics managed to
hold their own. At the 13
dollar mark bidding closed
and Sultan conceded the prize
to 4he girls.
Feeling ran so high against
Longstaffe that winner Jane
McComb was forced to divide
her pie with another irate
girl and together they thoroughly plastered him.

How to get bettor marks .. ♦
According to many well-known educators, there's  .
a legitimate way to improve your marks. They contend
that typewritten notes and essays lead to better
standing. Thoughts are expressed more clearly-*
spelling improves.
And speed? Fast longhand writing is about 30
words a minute. In no time at all you can do far
better on a Royal Portable.
Typed notes mean less squinting and guessing al
exam time too!
Just one caution—when choosing a portable type-
writer, look for a Royal. The rugged Royal will last •
lifetime. Small wonder it's the world's favorite.
See the Royal Portable at Dealer's and Department
Stores. Budget terms arranged.

' Sports on the University of Saskatchewan campus are
having a wonderful season in 1955-56. Saskatchewan has had
• fair measure of success on the inter-varsity level and the
intramural program is attracting large entries in most events,
particularly the ones from which a number of our intervarsity
team representatives are drawn. .
BASKETBALL TOPS
Senior basketball is holding
the spotlight on the U of S cairi-
pus at the present time. The
' Huskies have Just completed a
two game series with the Harlem Clowns who are makin their
annual swing through western
Canada. The new talent on the
Huskies includes Tom Meagher,
Lome Doane of last year's frosh
and Norm Valgardson, a graduate of Moose Jaw collegiate
whom it Is hoped will provide
a shooting ability, the lack of
which, has plagued the Huskies
at times in previous seasons.
Saskatchewan will play host
for the next WCIAU weekend
which takes place on Nov. 25th
and 26th. The men will compete
in badminton and volleyball
while the women will compete
only in badminton. Coach Johnny Leicester has not announced
his selection for the badminton
yet but it is known a number
of last year's team have been
(trying out. The volleyball picture is undecided at the present
time.
CURLERS PLAY
On the intramural scene one
finds the curlers getting anxious.
Over 130 entries have registered
already for league play which
opened Nov. 17th.
Last year's champions, the
Gary Thode rink from Agriculture have broken up. This will
• leave the university title up to
the rink which can outlast the
field in the double knockout
competition. The soccer championship went to the college of
Pharmacy.
Reaction to the news that the
Manitoba student athletic directorate had passed a $3500 hockey
budget was generally favourable
on this campus. M. A. B. prexy
Don Vinge stated the feeling of
the M. A. B.; equivalent to
Manitoba athletic directorate,
when he-welcomed Manitoba to
the hockey loop on the grounds
of the increased interest to the
fans and the better balanced
schedule which would result.
This writer is also pleased with
the news which will prevent too
easy a domination of the circuit by any one team.
Women's sports occupy an important place on the campus and
are on the up-swing.
Gerry and Lynne Evans and
Sandra Hay topped the other
varsity competitors in the golf
tournament held here and kept
the cup for us. Gerry is also
provincial ladies champion while
the other two are runners-up in
the competition. Naturally we
are proud of them.
Basketball leads the other
women's sports as the season
is in It's first half. The Huski-
ettes have been diligently practicing and played their first game
against the Adllman Aces, provincial champs and finalists in
the western playoffs last year.
BADMINTON POPULAR
Volleyball* badminton, and
swimming practices are held
twice weekly in preparation for
future tournaments. We also
have a flourishing badminton
club for faculty and students
with games on Tuesday and Friday nights—thus giving the
"bird-chasers" extra time for
practicing. Incidentally, this club
was thought to be disintegrating
early in the season but the turn-
ous have been stupendous and
we'rea literally walloping the faculty!
On that cheerful note we bring
Saskatchewan ramblings to a
close. See you next month.

Battle In
Stadium
By BRUCE ALLARDYCE
Varsity Stadium will be the
scene of'the Miller Cup clash
between Chiefs ' and Vindex
Club this Saturday at 2:30. With
one win and three losses, Chiefs
have nothing to lose.
Braves, however, have four
scalps on their belts, and will
be gunning for their fifth win
against no losses. North Shore
seconds will be the opposition
in a game which goes on the
Aggie field at 2:30.
The Braves' record on paper
is very impressive. They have
scored 103 points to 6 by the
opposition, which illustrates
their potent attack and defense.
The distribution of the points
is also very interesting. Twelve
of the fifteen players have scored
at least once. This shows the
ball is being passed, the basis
of good rugby.
Thirty-seven of these points
have come off the toe of one,
Hugh Barker. The stocky scrum-
half who, incidentally, is left-
footed, has practised conscientiously and his kicking is improving every game.
Tomahawks, the third team,
will be out to better their two
wins—three losses record when
they tangle with Ex-Brits at
Carnarvon Park. Both teams
lost last week, Tomahawks to
Barbarians, and Ex-Brits were
beaten by Braves. Game time
is 1:30.
At Douglas Park, the Redskins meet Rowing Club seconds
at 1:30 to round out the schedule for the UBC teams.
Playing on both Friday and
Saturday nights, Jack Pomfret's Birds wil be out to avenge their 61-41 loss at the
hands of the A's last week at
UBC.
Of the two contests, the
Thunderbirds have a better
chance of dropping Elmer
Spiedel's- crew in the tirst
game. The collegians are still
a little short in the condition

FflASER BACK
UBC will be bolstered by
the return of Center Mike
Fraser, out with pre-season injury. Fraser has been practising all week and seems to have
finally shaken his back injury.
Thunderbirds will be warming up for their big pre-Christ-
mas splash, the Totem tournament at UBC next weekend.
By way of competition, Birds
have invited Pacific Lutheran

Good news last weekend on
two fronts wound up the UBC
football season on a bright note.
With Central's 32-0 win over
Western Washington, UBC officially turned over its lease on
the Evergreen Conference cellar
to Western and finished in the
giddy heights of sixth place on
the seven-team loop.
The other news concerned
UBC's hopes for the future, the
Jayvees. Jim Boulding's boys
went through their four game
schedule undefeated as what
was to be their fifth and final
contest, with Seattle City Lions,
was cancelled because of the
weather.
tf      t^      tf*
Taking the season as a whole,
it had its ups and downs but
Frank Gnup and his Birds still
gave UBC our most successful
season since 1951 and probably
earlier.
"Ups" would be the 0-1) draw
witli McGill. our best Paraplegic Bowl performance to date,
the first Evergreen Conference
win since 1951 and sixth place
that went with it, in that 6-0 •
trouncing of Western, and those •
fifty-three minutes of scoreless
ball against second-place Pacific
Lutheran.
Low points would be Gordie
Flemons' shoulder separation,
the 48-0 shellacking from Whitworth, and the disappointing
28-6 Homecoming loss to Central Washington that will make
any Grads at that contest think
twice before attending another,
UBC football game. ]
For a change, prospects for
the future are brighter than
ia  a number  ef years.  Cen-
trary te a Ubyssey report that
incorrectly stated, because of
faulty editing, that nine Birds
would not be back next year,
only three have used up their
eligibility and some 'ef the
other six have stated they will
return for postf red week next
year and once again tell for
the Gnupmen.
In Frank Gnup, UBC appears
to have found a coach who seems
to have accepted UBC's novel
"de-emphasized football", and is
willing to do his best under our
conditions.
Also, the potential value of
the Jayvees cannot be overlooked. In the years to come,
if the Jayvee program is en-
couraged, Gnup will have some
players who at least know how
to put on their uniforms correctly and have some fundamentals.
tf tf tf
By most standards a win and
a draw in seven games is net
much bul to UBC it is most acceptable. ■
Considering that on paper
this year's team does not stack
up to Don Coryell's win less
1954 squad and that Birds lost
their big offensive hope in Gordie Flemons in the first minutes
of play this season. Birds' record becomes exceptional.
Let's only hope that next
year's Birds can show as much
improvement over this year as
the 1955 edition did over last
season's team.
Congratulations for a job well
done by UBC standards are in
order for Frank Gnup, Bob
Hindmarch, Bus Phillips, and
the whole team who at least had
the spirit that the student body
as a unit lacked. Rambling  Wrecks  From

THE UBYSSEY
Friday, November 18, 1955
By RAE ROSS
Ubyssey Football Editor
Slugging your guts out on a
snow-covered field is no fun. •
1 know. I used, to slug my
guts out on snow-covered field
for the B.C. Lions, but now I
slug my guts out for the Ubyssey on a paper-covered desk.
But Thursday noon, the spectacle of twenty-three frail little
nurses and home economics
girls slugging their guts out for
the March of Dimes brought
tears to my eyes.
But the big question in my
mind is this: was it American,
or was it Canadian football?
The home ec team was playing the American brand, with
eleven femmes on their team.
The nurses were playing Canadian, with twelve—and sometimes thirteen players—on the
field.
Home Ec scored three touchdowns, sparked by the hard-
driving femme fullback, Joyce
Lecision, and backed by a slam-
bang line that included standout right tackle Sharel Arden
and Joan Lennox. Sharel is' a
real cute little tackle who could
move Arnie Weinmeister with
a smile.
Nurses failed to score at all.

ROSS STILL PUZZLED .
So the score, if you're a Yankee was 18-0. If you're from this
side of the border, it was 15-0
We couldn't decide ourselves, so
we averaged the two, and came
up with a score of ldVi-O.
Despite the fact that they out-
womanned the Home-Ec girls
by as many as two players, the
Nurses' emphasis on ball-control
failed to result in a touchdown.
Outstanding players for the
Nurses were: Lily Dong (1933's
Homecoming Queen); Diane
Richardson, who was in charge
of Nurses' ball-carrying chores
most of the time; and Quarterback Ann Steele.
LIONS ARE GENTLEMEN

they said.

for material for next year's

Gnup said he is angling for
an exhibition match between
the Nurses and this year's Birds.

Brock Extension To
House Caf, Clubs
THE UBYSSEY
Friday, November 18, 1955
8
By  HOWARD   P.  THORNTON
A "Student Union'' building which will be an extension
to Brock Hall and will house
clubrooms and other facilities
for a campus meeting spot
moved closer to construction
yesterday with a meeting of
the University Clubs Committee.
At this meeting chairman
Don McCallum of the Brock
Extension Committee presented a tentative blueprint on
what club facilities will be
included  in the  addition.
There will be 25 club rooms
occupying on an average 185
feet apiece. Some clubs by
doubling up will have greater
space. Ex-tct figures of floor
space per club were not available at press time. i
The six man Extension Committee since its formation over a month ago has held six
meetings and appears to feel
the urgency of getting the
Brock unit beyond the blueprint stagt-. It is felt that four
months will be necessary for
blueprints to be processed by
the University architects Berwick, Shsirpe, Thompson und
Pratt. Early preparation and
approval of blueprints will
ensure spring construction.
The University Clubs Committee (UCC.) will present
its recommendations on the
BEC Report at a meeting this
Monday. With their suggestions the blueprint phase
should swiftly near completion.
Committee members McCallum and Gordon Armstrong this weekend will be
touring the Studetn Union
buildings in some five Washington Universities in the
hopes of gaining new ideas
for the Brock addition.
STUDENT FUNDS
Whether the Brock will
have a full-sized cafeteria
seems to rest with the University Administration. The
budget for the new Brock
wing which will be financed
solely from student funds,
• does not provide for construction of a caf. States -the treasurer of the Student Council,
Geoff Conway, "It is in the
hands of the Administration.
They are investigating the
possibility of adding a caf."
He felt the .Administration
"will probably" earmark
funds for a larger cafeteria.
Al Thackray, a member of
the Extension Committee believes that if the caf were
built it would be added on to
the present coffee shop.
COST OF EXTENSION
The "Student Union" extension on Brock Hall will
cost students a total of $350,-
000, according to latest estimates of 'AMS Treasurer Conway. Students at the General
AMS meeting last month authorized the use of the $5
