 ic Night at Basketball Game
fE~ERTCKStW
UBC's rowing crews, after six
months of hard training on a
tight schedule, will leave for a
well deserved trip to the Olympic Games on Saturday.
Also representing UBC on the
Canadian Olympic squad is 10,-
000 metre runner Doug Kyle.
Kyle graduated from UBC and is
now working in Calgary. He has
broke just about every Canadian track record in the books
and would have done so sooner
but due to the officials mistakes,
on the distance of the track, he
was "robbed" of any records.
Doug Clement, one of the few
medical students to find time
for sports, has become one of
Canadas's best short distance
runners in the last year.
Basketballers John McLeod
and Ed Wilde will strip for
their last game before leaving
V      *
with the team to Melbourne, to*
night, when they meet the Seattle West Side Ford sqaud coached by basketball star Johnny
O'Brian.
Today noon, a Varsity variety show will be staged in the
Brock Hall in honor of the UBC
athletes on the Canadian team.
The show is free and the Pep
Club has asked that everybody
attend.
Tonight, the Vancouver basketball Association will present
Olympic Sendoff night at the
UBC gym.
Frank Resd, coach of the rowing crew will reply on behalf
of the team.
Let'-; show the people of Vancouver some real university
spirit and above all let's wish
the crews the best of luck by
going out to the game and giving a loud send-off when they
?re introduced.
THE  UBYSSEY
Volume XXXIX
VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1956
No. 21
editorial   Manitoba Vote
Tuesday Decides
Today's Ubyssey. quite frankly, is a promotion venture.
Eleven hundred extra copies have been printed, and are
being air-lifted to the three other Western campi: Alberta,
Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The student newspapers on the
other three campi are in on the fun, and if you're fleet of
foot, you may get a copy of the Gateway, the Sheaf, or the
Manitoban in the quad on Monday.
The reason for this rather complicated air-lift operation
is simple, and of more than passing significance to every
UBC student. University of Manitoba students vote Tuesday
on whether or not to approve a five-dollar fee increase that
would—to oversimplify things a little—make possible a Western Intercollegiate Athletic Union.
The editors of the four Western college papers agreed
that they wanted a WIAU league, and agreed that if more students understood the athletic situations on the other campi
concerned, the WIAU would become a reality just that much
faster. So the airflift arrangement was made, and students
at Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan will read this,
just as UBC students—if they're lucky enough to get a copy-
will be informed of the athletic climate across the Rockies.
We're particularly interested at UBC in the reaction of
Manitoba students to the proposed fee increase. If they turn
it down, the formation of WIAU will take several years
longer. If they approve it in thumping numbers, the League
will start to become a reality immediately,
son,   year   after  year.
And its our strong suspicion that UBC students would
turn out in droves to see Alberta versus UBC, or Manitoba
versus UBC, where an Evergreen Conference Game attracts
only the very avid and the very lonesome.
The reason: UBC students happen to be Canadians, and
are probably more inclined to see Canadian football played
by a Canadian team that they are to see UBC Thunderbirds
get trounced by some heavily-subsidized Washington Teacher's College they've never heard of.
A Prairie athletic league would be a good thing for UBC,
and a good thing for Canada. For, as everyone from Bruce
Hutchison down well knows, the Rockies cut 0.C. off from
the rest of Canada. And the more holes that can be knocked
main and the stronger Canada will become as a nation,
main, and the stronger Canda will become as a nation.
We're well aware of the difficulties involved in setting
up a Western Athletic Union. The obstacles, naturally enough,
are financial, and the doom-prophets in the Treasurer's Office
can offer some sound argument to suport UBC's continued  participation   in  the   Evergreen  Conference.
But in case you hadn't noticed, all the objections to the
WIAU paraphrase the proposition. "It isn't possible." None
say it is fundamentally undesirable. And we submit, if the
unanimous desire is present—and we believe that, in the
final analysis, it is—then the' financial difficulties are not
insurmountable.
Fate Of WIAU
University of Manitoba students vote Tuesday to approve a five dollar fee increase that
will bring formation of a Western Intercollegiate Athletic Union halfway to realitv-and UBC
is watching.
Student' Council is unanimous
in its support of the formation
of a Prairie Athletic league—
although Councillors are wary
of the financial dangers involved.
AMS President Don Jabour j
is strongly in favour of the plan, j
Jabour has proposed a plan that
would enable the four western
universities involved in the
scheme to share any profits or
losses that WIAU formation
would involve. j
LOW FARES
In addition, he has applied
to, Trans-Canada airlines for fare
reductions in excess of the regular team reductions already
granted oy TCA. "Since we can
offer a minimum of thirty team
trips per season, i: might be to
TCA's advantage to grant the
additional reduction." Jabour
said Thursday.
Toynbee claims WIAU formation would mean a two dollar
AMS fee increase for UBC students. "But no more," he emphasized. "We could finance the
League on our end for that
much," he said.
NO RETURN
The proposed Western Intercollegiate Athletic Union, composed of UBC. Alberta. Saskatchewan and Manitoba, would
compete in major sports such
as football and basketball, and
in most minor sports too. Entry
in the WIAU would mean UBC's
withdrawal from the Evergreen
Athletic Conference.
Most officials agree that UBC
would be unable to re-enter the
Everyre-en League if tit- WIAU
League proved financially unfeasible.

Pansy-Pink Platitudes
Mr. Wallace, unofficial poet laureate of the Labor-Pro
gressive Party, has brought forth a new book. That peculiar
literary critter which used to be known as the "proletarian
poet" is pratcically extinct, but Mr. Wallace, after twenty
very revealing years, has somehow still maintained intact
his calf-eyed love affair with Soviet Russia. His poems are
still full of the picturesque imagery of proletarian literature
which used to include happy socialist youths driving tractors,
happy Soviet maidens driving tractors, young builders of
socialism repairing tractors together, and so on.
For a long time, we were vastly amused by this sort of
nonsense. But in Mr. Wallace's latest book, by God, he has
gone too far. We quote from a poem entitled, "Hungary:"
No more behind forbidden walls
A secret blossom blows
Its sacred incense hidden from
The proletarian nose.
All walls are down, or open wide
And   everything   that   grows
Is there to seek and there to' share
And those who love her well may wear
All Hungary as a rose.
How any man can stand up and utter pseudo-romantic
mouthings like that, in the face of the bloody, naked tyranny
which Soviet Russia is at this very moment imposing on a
brave and freedom-loving people is simply beyond us.
We hope Mr. Wallace and his pansy-pink co-horts are
doing some hard thinking about recent events in Hungary.
They should choke on their pretty, lying words. \
Bacon From Everywhere
President MacKenzie left for Ottawa last night; tomorrow, UBC's justly-famous Rowing Crew leaves for Australia.
We're hoping both delegations will bring home the bacon.
The President, together with Dean Scarfe, Dean Chant
and the Associate Registrar, Mr. Parnell, are journeying to
the annual meeting of the National Conference of Canadian
Universities. Their task: to wrestle with the perplexing problem of underfed Universities versus Provincial rights.
Under the British North America Act, the responsibility
for education lies with the provinces. The Federal Government, however, has quite rightly offered badly-needed additional assistance, which all provinces gratefully accepted.
All provinces, that is, but Quebec, Premier Duplessis
has consistently refused offers of Federal aid, on the grounds
that to accept might mean encroachment on his cherished
Provincial rights. He has maintained this stand for years
despite repeated and well-founded assurances that Ottawa
wants nothing in return.
When the Prime Minister made his most recent offer
of Federal assistance, he threw the difficult problem of what
to do about Quebec right in the lap of the NCCU. If the
NCCU can solve the puzzle, the money is theirs. And Mr.
Duplessis is the only obstacle.
UBC's Rowing Crew, as ev\ -yone knows, are travelling
to the Olympic Games in Melbourne. They have come a long
way on very little money; their big test is still before them.
If it is humanly possible to win, UBC's crew will win.
The hopes and best wishes of every UBC student go
With b6th groups. We'd love to see both return in triumph.
UBC Student Athletic  Rep Thinks
WIAU Would Solve UBC
Attendance Problem
(Editor's Notes—The follow-
ing article, written by Men's
Athletic Directorate President
Tom Toynbee, gives the official UBC Students' Council
view on the question of UBC
participation in a Western In-
tercollegiate Athletic Union.
Mr. Toynbte's views, it might
be added, are shared by faculty
officials of UBC's school of
Physical Education, and by
other Administration officials).
During the past five years
there has been considerable
talk at UBC and I understand
the other Western Universities
regarding the formation of a
four member Western Intercollegiate Athletic Union which
would operate football as one
of its major sports.
The concensus of opinion
seems to be that such a setup
would be very desirable to all
universities, but so far very
little material progress has
been made towards its establishment.
HIGH STANDARD
UBC is now, and has been
for almost ten years, a member of the Evergreen Conference — a seven member conference with the six other
members being small colleges
situated in the state of Washington. This Conference offers a high standard of compe
tition not only in American
Football and Basketball, but
also in Baseball, Track, Swimming, Tennis and Golf.
Unfortunately, however, the
student body of UBC is not particularly interested in the
Evergreen Conference. Consequently, student attendance
at football games has been
steadily dropping,
games, but there has been no
significant increase in attendance.
In a Western Canadian Intercollegiate League we see not
only the answer to our problem
of lack of student interest in
athletics, but also a partial solution to the problems of lack
of school spirit and student
apathy which I believe are
common to all our Western
Universities.
REVIVAL OF INTEREST
Not only would we expect an
upsurge in student interest in
athletics, but also a revival of
Alumni and "Downtown" interest. Alumni interest at
UBC is virtually dormant now
largely, I think, because the
average alumnus has never
even heard of the schools we
are playing against. Games
against other Canadian schools
would have a much greater
popular appeal, if only from
a nationalistic point of view.
Financial   Dangers Await
We Like WIAU
Let's Not Take
By AL FOTHERINGHAM
and PETER LUSZTIG
(Editor's Note: The following
statement, written by Vancouver Sun sportswriter Al Fotheringham and ex-MAD President Peter Lusstig, emphasises
the dangers involved in UBC's
deserting the Evergreen Conference in favor of a Western
Intercollegiate Athletic Union.)
Now don't get panicky,
gentlemen, we love Uncle Louie just as much as the next fellow. We salaam six times to
Sandy Ross's illuminated picture ot Premier Bennett before
retiring to bed each night. We
don't like Dirty Dickie Nixon
and the Evergreen Conference
anymore than you do.
We would love to have UBC
in Canadian athletic competition.
But it ain't pratcical, George.
It is financially suicidal and
geographically impossible.
UBC's present athletic budget is $43,000. If we were to
join the Western Intercollegiate Union, that budget would
have to be doubled. Plans for
all competition would have to
be based on flying. In the Ev-
ei green it is based on car,
bus and sometimes train travel.
UBC quit the Canadian
League and started American
competition in 1945 for financial reasons, and that competition with the prairies, mind
you, was only in football. We
played our basketball downtown.
To quote from a 1947 Ubyssey column of Chick Turner,
a UBC Rhodes Scholar. "In
1945 UBC pulled out of the
faltering Western Intercollegi
ate circuit after taking a financial hosing in the Hardy Cup
series . . ." That year UBC lost
$2000 on the series.
If we couldn't make it pay
then, with no television or
B.C. Lions to bother us, how
can we possibly make it pay
now?
The main reason given for
wanting to have Canadian competition ("We want to win some
games") is a defeatist, silly and
chicken-hearted attitude. The
idea should not be to lower
ourselves to a league of inferior quality but to raise our
standards on our present conference.
If we carry the above assin-
ine theory to its ridiculous conclusion, why not join the Crof-
ton House Squat-Tag Conference if we are so fanatical
about winning agame to salvage our fierce (except when it
comes to attending games)
pride?
The trouncing given us this
year by Western Ontario, last
,place in the East, indicates
that it is not so much that we
are behind the Evergreen
schools but that we are behind
every reasonably-sized Canadian university as well. Remember that basketball at UBC
has slipped to the point where
Vancouver Senior A teams now
are beating us— these teams
are not composed of overgrown
Americans but average Canadians.
Incidentally, it should be
pointed out that the timing of
this perennial move to quit
the Evergreen (right in the
middle of the football season)
The problem of expense is
probably our greatest obstacle
in the formation of such a league. We at UBC pay approximately three and one-half dollars per student per year to
athletics.
OBSTACLE — EXPENSE
To enter the Western Conference this fee would have to be
doubled. Manitoba has indicated that an increase of five
dollars per student will be
needed. Saskatchewan and Alberta will probably also require substantial increases.
AWARE OF POSITION
We at UBC are keenly aware
of our position, separated as it
were, from the rest of Canada
by the Rockies. We have been
looking for ways of getting a
greater unification between
ourselves and the other Western Universities and in this regard have been eying the present WIAU.
However, we cannot see how
such a league could operate on
a four team basis without one
large spectator sport, football.
It seems to us that the addition
of football could also lead to
an East-West Championship—
"The Little Grey Cup" — end
closer ties with Eastern Universities.
Now is the time to plan this
"New WIAU."
. But
Chances
does nothing to help the morale of those athletes whom student leaders often malign as
"not trying."
Even if UBC wants to, it cannot get into Canadian competition   before   1958.   A   year's
notice of withdrawal must be
given the Evergreen. Why then,
does it suddenly seem imperative for student leaders to raise
the   "Lets-quit-the-dirty-old-Ev-
ergreen" cry at the sametime
our  young  team is  trying  its
best to win some games from
those same Evergreen schools?
Why does the Athletic Director   feel   it   necessary   to   announce to a television audience
that   UBC   "isn't   quite   good
enough" for the Evergreen during half-time of agame in which
the team is playing one of its-
best  games  in  several  years?
Other   things   our   dreamer
friends  across the page don't
realize     or    won't    consider:
Where are UBC's tennis, track,
swimming, skiing, baseball r.nd
golf teams going to compete?
Where is University of Manitoba going to play?They don't
have a stadium. Would fans
rather see an inferior Saskatchewan Senior B-quality team
get beaten 40 points by 'Birds
than watch 'Birds split with a
top Whitworth club?
Two years ago Alberta had
what they ballyhooed as the
"greatest basketball team in
Canadian university history."
This great team, whose centre,
Ed Lucht, scored 86 points,
against U. of Sask. that year,
came out here and was bounced by 20 points each night by
Birds. What happens when.
they don't have such a team? 7k Sat
The calm reason and pro
found thought that is ihe hallmark of the Tie Bar's weekly
essays has caused many people
lo look to us for the solution
to their problems.
We cannot of course deal
with every request for counsel
we receive, our lime is simply
too limited, but today we propose to answer some of the
more burning questions that
have arrived in the week's
mail in the belief that the pro-
many of our readers and that
the Tie Bar's wise counsel may
help many along the path to a
fuller, richer life.

UBC Fall Plays Have A
Little Bit Of Everything
Lump a bit of Christianity
and Paganism with a chunk of
psychoanalysis, add a dash of
morality and mix well.
The outcome is not what
would be expected—an impossible and indigestible replica
of Shavian ingredients.
On the contrary, the result
is the well-varied program of
three one-act plays, the annual
fall production of the UBC
Players Club next Thursday,
Friday and Saturday nights,
which members promise will
be not only digestible but
"highly enlightening."
WILDER FANTASY
The first play on Hie program, "Pullman Car Hiawa-
that," a scrialistic fantasy by
Thornton Wilder, presents "a
picture of life against the
background of humanity," assistant director Fred Dowell
expounded.
A play within a play, it tells
a little of the lives of each
passenger on a Pullman car
en route lo Chicago, and in so
doing presents a slice of contemporary life.
Directed by Michael Rotli-
ery, the main characters will
be played by Larry Fofonoff,
Marilyn Meyers and Helen
Zukowski.
JOHNSON COMEDY
"In Waltz Time," a comedy
by Philip Johnson, and directed by Doris Chilcott. reflects
the attitude of scorn toward
the "immortal" waltz when
the dance came into vogue.
Loading characters in the
all-girl    east    include    Valerie
Tuxedo Rentals
WHITE COATS — TAILS
MORNING COATS
DIRECTORS COATS
SHIRTS- -   ACCESSORIES
Dowling, Flora Murray, Kathy
Roberts  and  Jan  Ferguson.
MORALITY PLAY
Christianity versus paganism is the theme of the third
play, "Thor, With Angels," a
type of morality drama by
Christopher Fry. Directed by
John    Brockington   the   play
emphasizes the awakening of
the Christian conscience in the
early Jutes. Heading the cast
is newcomer Geoff Elliott.
Advance sale tickets are
now on sale at Modern Music,
AMS or at the Players Club
Greenroom. Tickets are: students, 50c and adults $1.00.

afterwards.
What's that — you work late,

MEATPACKING
YESTERDAY
AND TODAY
By Bob Meadows
WESTERN  GAZETTE
The vast operations of
many Canadian industries are
very impressive to the eye,
but I think it is even more
fascinating to discover how
they came into existence. You
might be surprised to know
how many began — not as
joint ventures but as one-man
businesses, wholly dependent
upon the vision and enterprise of a single individual.
A good example is Canada
Packers, an all Canadian
company, operating 11 packing plants and 130 other establishments in Canada, and
with branches in the United
States.
This great corporation, employing more than 12,000
people and with sales of more
than a million dollars a day,
is the direct lineal successor
of a tiny business founded by
a young English immigrant in
Toronto in  1854.
William Davies, who served his apprenticeship in the
meat business in England,
was amazed at the lack of
skill shown by Canadian butchers. Realizing that such
competition would not be
hard to overcome, he set up
shop in the old St. Lawrence
market.
Soon his superior hams and
bacons outsold competitor
products and he was compelled to erect a new plant.
However, the necessity of refrigeration prompted him to
build a larger plant by the
Don River where ice could be
economically  cut  and  stored.
Tina initiative which marked his entry into business
characterized his whole career, tic was tho first Canadian to export bacon and
hams to Britain. He was the
first Canadian to instill artificial refrigeration and labor-
saving moving rails and

That means that the money for   Medical Faculty offices.
The history of UBC's Faculty
of Medicine dates back to 1913,
when Dr. F. F. Wesbrook, Dean
of the College of Medicine and
Surgery at the University of
Manitoba, was appointed president of UBC.
KEPT IN MIND
Along with Dr. R. E. McKechnie, Dr. Wesbrook aroused interest in the prospects of a medical school at UBC. But the
young university was in such
dire need of facilities for all its
already established faculties,
that the medical school was
merely "kept in mind" until the
early 1940's when concrete
plans began to be made.
In 1943, Dr. G. M. Weir, formerly head of the Department
of Education and • then serving
in the Dominion Department of
Veterans' Affairs, pointed out
the expected demand by veterans for medical education. He'
advocated the early establish-.
ment of a medical school at
UBC.
The following year a committee on medical education presented a brief to President L. S.
Klinck and to the minister of
education at Victoria urging the
establishment of the school. The
result was the setting up of a
committee on a Faculty of Medicine.
ATTITUDE
In January of 1945, after Dr.
N. A. M. Mackenzie became
President of UBC, the provincial
government was first approached to learn its attitude towards
the development of the school,
and at the subsequent opening
of the legislature, the Speech
from the Throne made reference
to provision of a capital grant
for the beginning of UBC's medical school.
After two surveys of medical
education were conducted in
1946, exploratory joint meetings
of the Board of Governors of the
University and Vancouver General Hospital were held early
the next year.
Dr. Myron M. Weaver, Assistant Dean of the University of
Minnesota Medical School, was
appointed Dean for the new faculty and assumed his duties in
July of 1949.
By September 7,  1950,  when
classes   began,  temporary  quarters   were   ready   and   an   able
staff was assembled.
FIRST YEAR
Instruction to 60 first year students  was  offered   in  anatomy,
; histology,   biochemistry,   physio-
! logy,  public health  and  human
1 behaviour.    These students were
selected  from  a  screening com-
! mittee of some 300 applicants.
|     The first class graduated from
I Canada's newest medical school
in May of 1954.
This year, upon Dean Weav-
! er's retirement, Dr. J. W. Patter-
] son from the School of Medicine,
Western Reserve University in
Cleveland, Ohio, was appointed
Dean of the Faculty. Plans for
expanding the school now rest
with the provincial government
and the release of funds for desperately needed housing.

Med Faculty's 12 Departments
Suffer From Lack Of Space
By SYLVIA SIIORTHOUSE
The Faculty of Medicine, UBC's newest school, "has done remarkably'well in getting
the program underway," recently appointed Dean J. W. Patterson said, in commenting on the
school's achievements.
The young faculty, of 285 full-'
time and part-time lecturers and
instructors, has graduated three
classes since it was founded in
1950.
YOUNG FACULTY
When Dean Myron M. Weaver
assembled his faculty members
in 1949 and 1950, he chose mostly young men who were keenly
interested in research as well as
teaching, Dr. S. M. Friedman,
head of the Anatomy Department, said.
"Hence the faculty as a whole,
compared to other schools in
Canada, is one of the most vigorous research-minded faculties in
Canada," he said.
The number of research publications by UBC Medical Faculty members is one of the highest in Canada.
The vast majority of the faculty are part-time instructors,
Dean Patterson explained. They
are doctors with private practices who "offer their time for
next to nothing."
Full-time members, who constitute only about one-quarter of
the faculty, are active on a year-
round basis, the Dean explained,
either in teaching, research and
patient care at the three hospitals with which the school is
associated: Vancouver General,
St. Paul's and Shaughnessy.
The faculty is divided into 12
separate departments, each with
its own staff, research work and
complaints about housing. Four
of the departments are clinical
and are directly connected with
the Vancouver hospitals, as one
department head commented,
"outposts of the university."
MEDICINE
Headed hy Dr. R. B. Kerr, a
graduate of the University of
Toronto, the department of Medicine heals mainly with students in  their senior years.    It
teaches the aspects of clinical
medicine, diagnosis, examination and methpds of treatment.
SURGERY
The department of surgery,
under Dr. H. R. Rebertson of
MqGill University, is one of the
largest with about 100 faculty
members,  only  three  full-time.
The department in turn is divided into eight additional sections: anaesthesia; eye, ear, nose
and throat surgery; neurosurgery, genetaurinal surgery, chest
surgery; plastic surgery, ortha-
paedic surgery and general surgery.
OBSTETRICS AND
GAENACOLOGY
Dealing with maternity and
pathology peculiar to women,
the department is headed by Dr.
A.  M. Agnew,  also a  graduate
I of the University of Toronto.
; PAEDIATRICS
| The department of Paediatrics
or child care deals not only with
medical students, but also lectures to students of Social Work,
Home Economics and Nursing.
It is headed by Dr. J. F. Mc-
Cteery of the University of Toronto.
ANATOMY
The study of anatomy occupies two-thirds of the time of
first year medical students.
j He, aided by Dr. S. M. Friedman, a graduate of McGill University, the department is closely linked with Biochemistry for
it provides a link between histology and chemistry a.s a factual
basis for surgery. Dr. Friedman \
stressed the need for teachers!
and research personnel in bio-
; logy, zoology, chemistry and
\ physics. "We have as good
equipment as almost any school
in North America," he said, "but
we haven't got the space for
what we are doing now — we're
doing it on top of one another."
BIOCHEMISTRY
Umder Dr. M. Darrach, graduate of UBC and University of
Toronto, the department deals
not only with medical students,
but also with pharmacy, agriculture graduate studies, arts and
sciences and home economic students.
PSYCHIATRY
Most of the study in the Psychiatry department is done at
Vancouver General Hospital,
Shaughnessy, Crease Clinic and
Essondale. A graduate of the
University of Manitoba, Dr. G.
A. Davidson heads the department.
PHARMACOLOGY
Described by department professor Dr. E. E. Daniel, as "the
most rapidly expanding field in
medicine," the Pharmacology
department deals with the action
of drugs on the body. It is headed by Dr. J. G. Foulkes, graduate and former faculty member
of Rice College in Texas and
Columbia University.
PHYSIOLOGY
Concerned with the normal
functioning of the human body,
Physiology was one of the first
departments to be established in
the new faculty. Head of the
department is Dr. D. H. Copp, a
gold medalist in medicine from
the University of Toronto.
PUBLIC HEALTH
Public Health is thc only department that teaches through
all four years of medicine. It is
also the only department that is
"completely satisfied" with its
accommodation in the Wesbrook
Building according to its head,
Dr. J. M. Mather, University of
Toronto graduate.
PATHOLOGY
An introduction to the study
of disease, the Pathology department is also connected with
the three Vancouver hospitals
as well as Royal Columbia Hos-
Schizoid
Trouble
Organic?
Experiments are being conducted in UBC's pramped medical huts that could lead to a major advance  in  psycho-therapy.
A new chair has been added
to UBC's Medical School to
handle Neurological Research,
and several projects are being
co-ordinated with the Crease
Clinic   in   Coquitlam.
Major among these experiments are attempts to prove the
assumption that there exists an
organic basis for schizoid disorders. The cardinal origin of
this assumption is the series of
experiments in genetics conducted by Dr. Franz Kallmann, of
the New York State Psychiatric
Institute.
WEAKNESS
Dr. Edith McGeer, currently
engaged on the UBC project,
stressed that while schizophrenia is undoubtedly not of wholly
organic origins, that "some may
be born with a latent metabolic
weakness, which would predispose them to such a disorder
when under stress."
Evidence to support the assumption also exists on the clinical level, as it has been observed that a toxichosis similar to
that of acute alcoholia exists in
extreme schizoid disorders, Dr.
McGeer explained.
CONDUCTED
The majority of work of this
nature carried on in other areas
is conducted in hospitals, where
research is a minor consideration.
UBC's Neurological Department has a distinct advantage in
this regard. Urine and blood
samples obtained at the Crease
Cliic are readily available for
their experimentation.
"Co-operation of the Crease
Clinic is indespensible to our
bio-chemical experiments," said
Dr. McGeer.
The UBC project, previously
located at Crease Clinic is on
campus because of superior research facilities.

NEUROLOGICAL RESEARCH
This department is the only
one concerned entirely with research. The bulk of the work
is on the chemical changes of
schizophrenia, muscular dystrophy and mental deficiency Head
of the department is Dr. W. C.
Gibson, a graduate of Oxford
and McGill. He also studied and
taught at Yale, California and in

GOOD LUCK CREWS!
Canada's Best Chance For A Gold Medal
Thii it the third in a series
of articles on th* rowing crews
and their drive to a berth in
the Olympic games.
By DAVE MANSON
And so the time has come
for young and well-publicized
Canadian students to wing their
way southward to the Olympic
Games.
They've spent seven months
grinding out some 6,000 miles
of rowing, listening only for
their coaches rasping criticism
and looking for an Olympic
Victory.
It has been a gruelling battle,
many times harder than they
ever expected, but from it, they
have emerged strong and disciplined in body, humble and
sincere   in   mind.
Coach Read's first words
when they swung into the train
ing routine last May were:
"It'll be tough, and it could
be a summer you'll hate to remember, but if each and every
crew member puts his every
thought to the crew and its
success, it'll be an outstanding
and happy memory for the rest
of your lives."
WORKED HARD
And that is what the boys
have done; channelled all their
actions and desires along one
course; the rowing course. They
have oaten, studied, worked,
rowed, and even fought together to make the UBC four and
eight the greatest champions
Canada has ever produced.
They have organized themselves into a well-knit unit
both on and off the watet and
have formed a club far superior in ideals and far more en
thusiastic in activities than any
other campus organizations.
Primarily, they are athletes,
well trained and highly skilled,
but also they are leaders, each
one a willing and cooperative
worker.
But they are the first to admit that it was the generosity
of Vancouver and UBC that
made them world feared as
Olympic Challengers.
They started with nothing
but cots in a hundred-dollar-a-
month house, but within two
months they were living and
working within minutes of the
rowing course.
ENTHUSIASTIC
Supplies of fresh meat and
vegetables, 4 outfits of warm
strip,   2   sleek   shells   worth
$4,000, and a strip-drying room
as good as any in Canada, were
freely donated by city industrialists and rowing enahusi-
asts, to make our Thunderbird-
VRC crews the best equipped
in the country.
And above all, ahe people
of small towns throughout B.C.,
such as Salmon Arm, Grand
Forks, and Kelowna as well
as Vancouver have donated
$25,000 dollars to give the oarsmen every chance of vitcory.
EVERY CHANCE
The crews have wanted to
make their token of thanks an
Olympic Gold Medal all
through training and they start
that last leg of the half-year
grind tomorrow. To take that
final race will be the toughest
job they've had since training
started and they'll need unlimited support.
HALF-YEAR GRIND
So let's wish them the best
of luck  and every success.
We're with you in every race

Thursday's Mock Parliament was interupted suddenly
when a lab-coated-clad "Egyptian" arrived to speak on the

The   intruder   was   Wayne

Halfway through the meeting as a CCF member was
speaking, Jim MacFarlan, who
spoke earlier for his Labor

Moments later the white-

EXPELLED
Members of the Tory government expelled the "Egyptian," and the audience returned to their seats.
"I must ask for an apology
from the Honorable Member"
Marchak said. "In fact, his actions have been so insulting
to this body, that I feel I must
name the offender, and ask
that he be expelled."
A Sergeant-at-Arms appointed by Prime Minister Terry
