Money raised last term to bring three Hungarian students
to UBC will be used instead to aid the twenty Hungarian
students expected to arrive in Vancouver, WUSC officials announced today.
'The federal Government is underwriting the cost of
transportation to Canada of all relugees ' said Armstrong,
"so we feel that by helping twenty Hungarian students in
Vancouver wo will be putting the money to better  use. '
WUS and other campus organizations raised  over 82,000
in various campaigns last term.
UBC APPROVES BURSARIES  f '
The UBC Board of Governors
has approved three S300 bursaries to be made available to thc
group next fall, and is expected
to waive tuition fees for all
those who qualify for university
entrance.
Ten students have been located already and the Immigration
Department is cooperating with
WUS in finding more.
Idea for the switch in plans
occurred during the holidays.
An emergency Hungarian Student Aid committee was organized composed of Gordon Armstrong, Art Hughes, Jerry
Brown, and  Charles Hamon.
Committee is working on a
six point program oi help:
• Locate all Hungarians
who want to continue their
education.
• Determine their academic qualifications, and if suitable—
• Secure room and board
as near UBC as possible and
" provide    them    with    pocket
money,
• Arrange work in city
until fall term next September.
• Establish language instruction.
• Provide limited financial
assistance for the 1957-58
term.
Armstrong emphasized that

Ex-Pubster  Warns
Sound And Fury
This year's CUP Conference, held in Toronto, was
an exception; for once the CUP had something to talk about,
and had an opportunity to do something useful. Characteristically, the opportunity was lost, and the CUP succeeded
only in making itself look rather silly. (Considering its
past inactivity, even this in itself is something of an accomplishment.)
All the discussion this year was prompted by the appearance of a publication known as the Canadian University Post, an advertising throwaway mailed free to every
English-speaking university student in Canada. The problem before the editors was fairly simple, whether or not
to support the Post. The CUP met the problem with undergraduate gusto. For three days, editors exchanged expressions of mutual ignorance regarding advertising revenues,
displayed a genius for obfuscating the simplest issues and
towards the end of the conference, when everyone was
tired of talking, narrowly passed a resolution of non-
support against the Post, and went home and forgot about
the whole thing until next year.
A threatened loss of advertising revenues, of course,
turned out to be the editors' strongest objection to the
Post. This school of thought was led by the McGill Daily,
who unhesitatingly predicted that the Post would "kill"
college newspapers, unless opposed. The fact that college
newspapers are student subsidized, and therefore quite
immortal, was blithely ignored.
As a matter of fact, advertising was not even mentioned in the non-support motion. Instead, it was decided
not to support the Post on the rather curious grounds that
it was not bilingual (this went over big with the Quebec
delegates) that its news was not up-to-date (because the
Post only publishes twice a month) and that it was not
controlled by undergraduates. (As always, undergraduate
editors love to tilt at "big business," or whatever looks
like "big business." The fact that the Post is a shoestring
venture, and is still well in the red, was again ignored.
In the face of this, every editor agreed on the necessity
for a national college newspaper. But the Post wasn't good
enough for the editor's lofty notions of what a national
newspaper should be. So it was decided not to support it.
Instead of admitting that the CUP, which is only barely
capable of sending telegrams, will never be in a position to
produce a paper remotely approaching the Post, the editors
preferred to be sophemoric about it. Instead of voting to
support the Post, in an attempt to correct its admitted rlefecs,
and mould it into the type of national publication of which
the CUP or anyone else could be proud, they preferred
to play dog in the manger. And on top of this, it was arranged so the motion would be utterly ineffective! a clause
specifying that thc motion would not be binding on individual CUP members was included—thus turning the motion
into (a) an impressive expression of sophemoric shortsightedness and (b) a sort of wordy monument to conventioneers everywhere who like to travel tar to say much to
accomplish  nothing.
Happily, though, the motion was very nearly defeated;
the convention was split nearly down the middle on the
issue. Those of us who formed the opposition can take
some consolation from that. And happily, too, no-one will
pay attention to the motion. The Post will continue to
publish as before, individual cdiors will continue to support
or oppose the Post as they see fit, and the CUP will continue to hold costly conventions every year, and pass more
tend more and more silly, useless  '.solutions like this one.
Whoa There, Trekkers!
Lets Stop And Think!
(Editor's Note: — Old pubster
Mike Ames, now at Harvard
studying anthropology, contributes his provocative two-bits
worth to the Great Trek Movement, of which much more will
be heard).
By MIKE AMES
I would like to congratulate
the people who put together
the New Great Trek edition of
The Ubyssey last December. It
was a commendable effort for
the Publications Board and it
supported a more or less worthy cause. But in their haste
to plead for more money the
editors seem to have overlooked a few important factors, and
I, for one, am inclined not to
be too impressed by their plea
because of this. I would like
to bring these factors to the
attention of the editors.
The only question raised was
"What does your university
need to stay in business?" and
it was answered by saying a
lot of money is needed. It also
seems to be a tacit assumption
that UBC education is good,
and that more UBC education
would be even better.
But you fail to convince me
by that sort of plea. Money
alone will not provide British
Columbia, or Canada, with the
type of education it needs: money alone will not make UBC
a leading university.
AWARE
The first question which
should have been asked is —
"What can UBC do itself under
present conditions to improve
educational services?" Instead
of asking this question you assumed, rather wrongly I think,
that UBC was already doing its
best and everything will work
out just fine long as "we" get
cough money.
But there are a few things
the university could do right
now which would raise the
standards and. if anything,
lower the budget.
The first step would be to
relax bureaucratic controls.
Far as I am concerned Bureaucracy is Public Enemy No.
1. and anything that does away
with some of the rigidity and
compulsive conformity inherent in the system is an improvement. One example here
would be the status of an honor
.student, .so-called. It seems
nonsensical to me that a student who is earnestly devoted
to studying should "be forced to
take more course work rather
than less. The poor guy has
enough motivation of his own
and he does not have to be
pushed through anyone else's
tredmill.
EXPAND
Another thing UBC could do
would be to expand its "outpatient" service, a device
which has proved quite practical in hospital work. Using
mass media is one obvious device for increasing this service,
night classes another, but the
out-patient field is not by any
means fully explored or made
use of. The Extension Department is already a healthy
source of income, and it could
become even more should the
university as a whole increase
its moral as well as financial
support. It seems to me that
Extension services are, if you
will pardon the phrase, a more
or less virgin field awaiting
some dilettante's discovery.
Thc suggestions could be
multiplied, but enough has
been said to establish my first
point: you should forget about
pleading for the moment and
take a good long look in the
mirror.
When you make UBC worth
more money then you have a
right to ask for it. It is useful
to remember that sometimes
things can be made better by
being different rather than by
being more of the same thing.
My second major point is to
question the popular assumption that students should not
have to pay much for university education, that tuition fees
should   not  be  raised  to  meet
rising costs. It is a fallacy
under our political system a
least, to believe that good edu
cation can be bought cheaply
(as a matter of fact to believt
you can get anything for noth
ing). This is a difficult prob
lem and it immediately arouse
many emotional controversa
ries, but this should not be al
lowed to obscure the issue.
FREE UNIVERSITY
First, if UBC becomes i
"free" university there is grea
danger that it will become lik
some of the American state in
stitutions — a glorified pla>
ground. Playgrounds are use
ful, but Canada needs academi
centres first.
Second, if fees were double
or tripled it would, as well a
help fill the coffers, help mak
the average student much mor
aware of what he is doing wit
his time. A person will thin
twice before he wastes $80(
and if he does waste it it
more his loss than the iostiti
tion's.
Third, higher fees will nc
necessarily penalize lower s<
cioeconomic groups, as man
people are inclined to believt
Along with raised fees the gov
ernment and industry shouli
hike scholarship funds and jol
opportunities. (Working one'
way through college is th'
thing to do in the West and
do not think anyone will con
plain about having to earn par
of his way.
EDITORS
The point I present here i
that if the editors postpone fo
a moment their devotion to sc
called democratic ideals, the;
may see some logic in raise<
student fees. Such a proposa
should at least not be swep
away without thorough consic
eration. as unfortunately ha
been the tendency in the past.
However,     despite     what
have said above, I agree whole
heartedly  with  you  that  UB(j
needs much more money anc
accordingly I wish you all th|
luck in your campaign.

THE NEW YORK  TIMES
The so-called "Eisenhower
Doctrine'' for the Middle East.
which is being shaped these
days is a great and stirring
challenge to the United States.
We face problems that are enormously complex and delicate,
different from any that have
arisen   in  these   postwar  years.
They must be considered
coolly and clearly. It will need
all the skill and experience of
our diplomatic corps and economic experts; it will need a
truly bipartisan national approach, for tiie security of the
United States as a whole is at
stake and will demand a wide
degree of popular understanding and support.
This is a program and a policy that will inevitably demand some sacrifices and risks
jn order to avoid much greater
ones later.

Eisenhower Administration ha.s

them, but we cannot do so unless we all recognize them and
keep them in mind.
In the Middle East itself we
must start with the Arab-
Israeli conflict. The Arabs
want to destroy Israel; we are
committed to the continued
and secure existence of Israel.
The Suez Canal problem has
not begun to be solved. Aside
from the clearance of the canal
- a relatively simple technicality, there is the question of
the free and safe passage of all
ships, including Israel's, and
the Egyptian ; i/ure of the
canal.

the question of Colonel Nasser,

UPRAISED HANDS were counted and great issues resolved as college editors from
across Canada met in University of Toronto's hallowed Hart House December 27-29,
at the nineteenth annual Conference of the Canadian University Press. Stormy controversy at the Conference was prompted by the appearance of the Canadian University
Post, which many editors regarded as a threat to college newspapers. From left to right,
delegates are: Jim O'Grady, the ueens Journal; Gary Thaler, McMaster Silhouette;

Hungarian Students Reap Benefits
Of Politician Hat - Theft Contest
Hungarian students will benefit from the theft of the largest collection of politicians'
iats ever assembled in Canada.
Frank Sweet, editor of the "Purple and White" of Assumption College in Windsor,
Ontario, is demanding a total of S310 ransom for the return of eight politicians' hats which
he abducted from the Canadian University Press Conference in Toronto December 28.
All the ransom money thus collected will be donated to the Hungarian Students' Re-
ief Fund.
The hats had been stolen from provincial premiers and other political figures by col-
ege editors, in preparation for a ''CUP hati'ack"  pageant  to be  held  in  connection  with
the Conference.
Purple    and     While     staffer
Dennis Deneau, who had been
assigned to guard the collection,
scooped up most of the hats, and
hastily fled Toronto.
College editors attending the
annual Conference of the Canadian University Press in Toronto
December 27-29 voted 11-9 not
to support the Canadian University Post.
The contentious issue dominated a stormy, three-day meeting, which split the convention
down the middle.
Appearance of the bi-monthly
Post, which is mailed free to all
English-speaking Canadian University students has worried editors since September. Many fear
loss of national advertising revenue.
POST COULD "KILL"
McGill Daily Managing Editor
Jim Lotz warned the Post could
"kill" Canadian college newspapers, by competing for national advertiser's dollars. Post

j attended the convention, assured,

mention advertising. As carried
by the convention, the motion
recognized the need for a national college newspaper, but, due
to editorial limitations of the
Post, withheld the support of the
Canadian University Press. The
motion was not to be binding on
individual member papers, however, who wdll still be free to
form their own policies regarding the Post.
LIMITATIONS
Editorial limitations listed in
the motion were:
(1) The Post is not controlled
by undergraduate editors. The
Post is published by Inter-Varsity Publications, a Quebec corporation, the majority of whose
common stock is held by UBC
graduate A. David Levy.
(2) The Post is not bilingual.
Mr. Levy said this limitation
was imposed by financial considerations.
(3) The Post does not carry
up-to-date news and features.

Original decision to publish a
ixteen-page tabloid size paper
vas abandoned when Peter
jzovvski, Editor of the Univer-
iity of Toronto Varsity, found
hat no advertising could be sold
or the proposed publication.
Gzowski said the lack of advertisers was due to the appear-'
nee of the Canadian University
'ost, which began publication in
Dctobcr, aimed at all English-
speaking college students.
Despite the lack of advertising
revenue, the editors decided to
h'o ahead, and produce a smaller,

DRIVE FOR RANSOM j

said he would launch a campus-
wide drive to raise the $35 ransom for the return of the Ubyssey hat.

THE    UBYSSEY
PAGE FIVE
By TONY GAMBRILL
"Tally goddamn ho:" cried the
gentleman in the bright red (but
not scarlet) jacket, white cordi
and mud-covered loafers as he
buzzed down the Main Mall on
his excited little Italian scooter.
Behind him  followed  a  similarly-dressed crowd of riff-raff
shouting epithets which had an
unusually   basic   flavour.   They
were riding a motley assortment
of bicycles, souped-up '49 Mercs
and  oven  a  Brahma  bull that
must   have   been   carelessly   let
out of the Aggie barns.
Then again behind this bawdy
group came a number of gentlemen who were more appropriately dressed in scarlet and
black riding habits. Mounted
decorously on bay geldings, they
stayed discrete distance away
from their opponents. Allan
Thackeray led this party, puncturing the air with an occasional
blast on his pewter horn, The
fellows chanted softly:
"We needn't mingle with the
masses
Although    they    think    were
horses'    . . . ."
As the two groups disappeared in the direction of the National Research Council building, the first intramural -foxhunt had officially got under j
way. |
In order to add colour to intramural competition, fox-hunting was recently added to the
roster of sports. Later in the
year it is hoped to also include
bear-baiting, greyhound racing,
mah jong and Russian roulette.
Another fantastic possibility
that is being considered by Bob
"Cecil B. de" Hindmarch is an
athletic spectacular to wind up
the year. It would be a sort of
combination "Ten Commandments" and "Around the World
in Eighty Days" with the climax
featuring Christians (handpicked
from Anglican College by a vice-
president of Burns & Co.) being thrown to the lions. Hindmarch thinks he can get a dozen
lions cheap from Ringling
Brothers' remaining livestock.
One disconcerting point about
the new competition was the
result of the first hunt. The
Engineers completely lost the
trail of the fox and were last
seen entering the Belmont; the
Betas, on the other hand, abandoned the chase when Thackeray got arrested for disturbing
the peace.
Rumour has it, incidentally,
that the fox ran into the library
and died of fright with the noise.
A hastily-formed judging committee awarded the Engineers 3
points and the Betas 9 for their
performances in the field. The
additional points went to the
latter team for form. At the tea
break the Betas correctly buttered the crumpets while the
Engineers committed the unpardonable sin of soaking them
in beer.
The next meet promises to be '
better,   however,   as   both   contestants   will   be   hunting   with
dogs in the more accepted manner.   It  will  feature  a  Phys  Ed
team   (made    ip   of   those   who,
flunked  their volleyball theory'
exams   at   Christmas)   and   Rid-1
dington Reading Room "A". The
latter are believed to have hired
a team of huskies from a  fam-!
i!>   living  in  one  of  those  new
subdivisions above the 3,500-foot j
North Vancouver. j
New Stack Wing
Added To Library
SHOLTO HEBENTON, UBC '56-'57 winner of the Rhodes
scholarship, plans to tudy Law during his three years at
Oxford.
The fourth-year Arts student who is president of the
United Natirfns Club and Beta Theta Pi fraternity, will receive a BA in Law at the end ow two years. One further
year of study will grant him a Bachelor of Civil Law.
Hebenton, who comes from Penticton, has taken combined honors in International Studies and Economics while
at UBC.
Rhodes scholarships are granted each year on the basis
of scholarship, athletic ability, and extra-curricular activity.
Symposium To Consider
Student In Academic Life
What part does the student play in the academic life?
This question and a series of allied problems will come
under student-factulty consideration in a tentatively scheduled
weekend symposium.
The problem was brought up during leadership conference
and the idea developed through informal discussions during
the fall term by a group of interested students.
Several     hundred     question
students.
naires are now being distributed j     Miss Archibald added that ap-
among students to determine in- plication-questionnaire forms are
terest in the symposium according to committee chairman
Kathy Archibald.
If the idea for the symposium
is approved by students and by
Students' Council, the meeting
will take place over a weekend
during the near future. Speakers
from other universities as well
as interested faculty will be
asked to take part in joint discussions on the ideal nature of
the relationship between students and the university.
Interest in academic affairs;
and academic ability will play {
a  part   in   the  selection  of  the j
available at the AMS office.
Sounds of hammers, drills and
saws are echoing through the
stacks in UBC's Library, as
workmen labor to increase the
crowded stack facilities by about
one third.
Construction of a new stack
wing in the Southeast corner of
the Library building, in the
seven-dccK space formerly occupied by the Fine Arts workshop,
began December 15. Construction is scheduled for completion
by early March.
NEW CARRELLS |
Thc new stack wing will contain stack space for some 200,-
000 new volumes, and 84 new
carrclls, 12 to a deck. At present, the Library has over 200 of
the coveted study-cubicles in the
stacks. Due to crowded conditions, only third and fourth year
and graduate students can use
carrells.
Answering students who have
complained that construction
noise disturbs study. Librarian
Neil Harlow said Wednesday:—|
"Because of the exigencies of
the building program, we had
the opportunity either to accept,?
the installation immediately, or
postpone it for some seven or
eight years."
ANSWERS COMPLAINTS
"Since plans for the addition
had already been in hand for
several years, and were ready to
be put into effect at Once, we
were pleased to be able to go
ahead with them. The results of
waiting would in the long run
be far more of a handicap to students that the temporary discomfort of the present," he said.
Construction will also start
soon on 50 new carrells in the
old stack section. A new steel
staircase, wide enough to allow
two people to pass, will also be
built for student use. The narrow staircase presently in use
will t hen be used by the Library staff only.
OTHER RENOVATIONS
Other changes in the Library
will see the main loan desk being enlarged to include the seri
als department enabling students to borrow both bound and
unbound magazines at the same
desk as regular loan books.
Present Serials room will become the home of UBC Medical
book collection, now on stack
two with space being left in tho
room for Med. students to study.
TYPEWRITERS
AWAIT PUBSTERS
Okay . you slackards,
back to the typewriter.
Enough of this N e w
Years' nonsense. If the
hangover isn't cured see
Mother Kipher and then
report down to the Ubyssey office for another
gasser of a term.
Also those who were too
scared to come last term
now is the time to come.
Even old light-fingered
dry-headed Ross has mellowed somewhat.

Functions of the
Packing Industry
The meat-packing industry
acts as hand-maiden to Can-
dian agriculture. It is the
marketing division of the
country's livestock trade. Its
function is to make the steer
on the range or the hog in the
pen into high quality meats
for your table, and it ha?
learned to do this while netting the producer a fair return in the bargain.
The successful packer is the
one who turns out the best
products at the lowest operating cost. The role of benefactor to Canadian agriculture
is therefore played by the
packer as a matter of necessity.
There are 154 packinghouses in Canada, each
equipped to handle PEAK
livestock deliveries. Yet during many months of the year,
there is not sufficient livestock to keep all working at
capacity. The only way for
the packer to be superior in
the resultant competition is
to produce a superior product.
Quality and economy apply
not only to meats but to every
portion of the animal. Each
part must be made to serve
the purpose which will bring
the best return.
The principal by-products
of the animal are hides or
skins, fats, edible viscera, casings, bones and glands.
In the raw state, none of
these, except the edible viscera, is of much service to
numanity. From the other
by-products the packer wisely
manufactures such essentials
as leather, soap, and sausage-
containers.
Machinery, too, is adaptable If there is not enough
of the work for which it was
designed to keep meat-canning equipment, for example,
constantly in use. the machine
is employed for vegetables
and  fruits.
A large, modern corporation like Canada Packers is
led inevitably into a very
broad sphere of activities. To
its initial business of meatpacking, it adds the production of leather and wool, lard,
shortening, margarine and
soaos, animal feeds and fertilizers, gelatine, pharmaceuticals, poultry and eggs, butter and cheese, fresh, canned
and frozen fruits and vegetables. The only limit to this
expansion is in finding sufficient capable young men with
the necessary education and
ability to direct such diverse
operation?.

East Of Eden
By
The Journal, campus clarion
of Queens University, polled
students on their opinions of
teenagers' idol, Elvis Presley.
"OH GOD"
Although 70r; of those polled thought Presley "Immoral,"
none felt lie has "a serious effect on Canadian women.'
Only 20r; said they would prefer his company to utter isolation on a desert island. Not
one girl said she would accept
a proposal of marriage from
Presley.
Most typical answer to the
question "What is your considered opinion of Elvis Presley" was "Oh God."

COMMON GOALS
Hart House debators at Toronto last month decided that
both   the  Republican   and the
MARILYN  SMITH
Democratic parties "have taken
their planks from the same
tree,"
They also agreed that the
two parties have used these
planks "to build not platforms,
but fences on which to roost."

RUSSIANS WELCOME
Also at Toronto, 90 % of students interviewed by Varsity reporters were in favour of a
proposed visit of Russian students to Canadian campuses.
General feeling of those who
favoured the idea was that, as
one .Uudent put it, "they have
a rather cockeyed view of us—
it would be worth sending
money to straighten their notions out."
Typical of those who opposed the proposal, one student
said that such a visit would be
(CUP Editor)
useless, since those allowed to
come would probably be "puppets of the regime."
if. if. if.
THE WAGES OF SIN
The McGill Daily reports
that the Swedish Social Democratic Youth Organization has
sent a petition to the Swedish
government that high school
and university students be paid
wages during their study period.
The organization feels that
wages are necessary to cover
the cost of tuition and living
expenses, and support students
in case they marry.
The salary demanded would
cover approximately 120,000
high school and 25,000 university students. Few Swedish
studenls take jobs while attending school or college.

By BARRIE HALE
It was on a fairly mild night
during the holidays that we arrived late at a party, the combatants of which seemed to be
engaged principally in collective disrobement, and made
our way circuitously to the bar,
to be pulled up short by an importunate hand on our shoulder. We looked down and
found that the hand was extended from a sleeve, which, as
previously noted, was unique
enough to warrant a glance at
the face of its owner.
"Tony Gambrill," we exclaimed, "haven't seen you
since that night at the New
Congress Club"'
"Go away, dear," Gambrill
smiled to the exquisite creature at his elbow. "Man-talk,
honey."
We stood conversing, Gambrill and I, as the party eddied
and swirled around us. We
spoke of the Crimea (gad, sir,
that was a war), the condition
of the pound sterling (the colonies must buy more, sir), of
liquor (opium of the upper
class.es), and of sex (if you
haven't got a decent book to
read, you may as well). Indeed,
we seem to have dwelt linger-
ingly upon this latter subject.
Finally, our glasses growing
momentarily opaque with each
exhalation, Gambrill delivered
himself of the suggestion that
the two of us should alternate
column topics to avoid any
clashes, that is, the week we
wrote about sex he should
write about liquor, and vice
versa. Dashed incisive intellect, Gambrill.    Dashed.
We flipped a coin to establish who should discuss sex the
fir.st week, but this proved ineffective as it was seized in
mid air by an exchange student from Manchester, who
made off with it mumbling
something about a gas meter.
At any rate, it evolved that
this first column of ours should
dwell upon sex. Now it is one
thing to decide to chaffer about
sex when the floor is canting
nicely under one's feet and one
is surrounded by peaked and
valleyed cashmere, and quite
another to actually discuss it in
the clinical light of the morning after, when one is surrounded by untouchable coffee
and too many cigarette butts.
We are frankly appalled at
thc prospect, and so will content ourselves merely with listing data, leaving the theorizing
to some earlier, less civilized
hour of thc morning.
Very well then, data: Sex, a
rite celebrating the productiveness of thc Corn God, was first
practised openly by the Laga-
mol Indians of the Pelvic Basin
of Central America. It was
brought to civilization by Noel
Coward, who later became a
rich man. Henry Ford used it
to sell cars. Disdaining these
later corruptions, Howard
Huges returned to Sex its original cultural meaning when
he used it to sell Corn in 1942.
Became a specialized government agency in 1956 (Loose-
Nixman Act). Still exists as
public domain in children's
tales, as " . . . and to all a good
night." Thursday, January 10, 1937

"The Prowlers! Gosharootie!"
The pubsters squirmed with
pleasure.
"Also," McGow continued,
"URS will sponsor a FREE Hi-
Fi dance at noon Thursday (today) in the Brock." He went on
to say that this might possibly
be a regular occurance, and
shook hands silently all around.
To be an actuality by this
coming Monday, is a 10 o'clock
morning newcast, to be a daily
feature. The news show will
cover both world and local

by IBMer Ken Coop r
What is this IBM?
IBM is many things. Physically it's International
Business Machines Company Limited with a quarter-
mile long ultra-modern factory located in the suburbs
of Toronto, a group of twenty-one branch offices in
the principal cities of Canada, a private golf and
country club where employees spend their leisure,
and a large group of intelligent men and women who
proudly give themselves the strange title of IBMers.
People who work at IBM call themselves IBMers
because it's the natural thing to do. And it's the
natural thing to do because the company is friendly.
It's friendly enough to pay your hospital bills when
you're sick, to provide you with a pension plan and
up to $25,000 life insurance. But more than that, it
encourages you to grow with the ever-expanding
business, to advance rapidly and to be able to afford
to live in the most attractive areas in your town and,
above all, it gives you interesting work to do.
For university graduates this interesting
work takes many forms which offer much
scope and afford the exercise of individuality
and originality. In the coming months I will
outline some of the opportunities at IBM
that will interest vou.
