Hees To
At Noon
Tory National Organizer Geo.
Hees — on a "grass roots organizing tour" — will address students in F & G 100 at noon today.
According to Progressive Conservative club president Terry
O'Brien Hees has "done a tremendous job in whipping up interest in our party."
Until yesterday Hees had been
mentioned with three other Tories for the post recently vacated by George Drew.
He announced Thursday he is
"out of the running," and said
he would support Saskatchewan
MP John  Diefenbaker.
O'Brien added that Hees will
be in the Double Committee
Room from 11.30 to 12.30 to
meet PC. club members and
those interested in joining.
Bank Loans
Government-guaranteed bank
loans for university students
were proposed last Monday by
R. A. Patterson, president of the
Canadian Association of Real
Estate Boards.
Patterson was addressing the
annual meeting of Canadian
Realtors in Halifax.
The plan would have banks
advance money to needy students
who would repay the loans during a 5- to 10-year period after
graduation. These loans would
be insured by the federal government.
"The idea is an interesting
one," said Dean Walter Gage of
the proposal, "but I'm not certain how it would work, as such
a plan with banks would require
guarantors, who would probably
be the parents."
Dean McPhee, of the Commerce Faculty, felt the great
need for more loans for students
in their first year of university.
"It might be useful to have machinery to increase the loans,"
he said.
At present, UBC has some
$500,000 in revolving loan funds
currently in use, according to
Dean Andrew.

Beck, Jabour Hope
For Comprimise At
NFCUS Convention
AMS president Don Jabour and NFCUS chairman Stan
Beck flew to Montreal Thursday in a "spirit of compromise."
ADORINGLY STROKING the fleecy locks of Canada's
dreamboat, Seedy Howe, is globe-trotting Ubyssey writer,
Pound Foolish.
In an exclusive interview, Miss Foolish found out what
makes "Seedy" tick.
She tells all in today's Ubyssey.
'Just Call Me
Seedy, Honey
OTTAWA—I had a date last night with the man who
makes every Canadian women squirm with pleasure at
the mere mention of his name—C. D. Howe.
"Just call me Seedy, Honey," he rasped in his asthmatic windpipe, as he slobbered a senile kiss of greeting
on my cheek. And if anyone thinks I'm going to wash off
the brown stain made by those withered old gums, well
they're crazy man, crazy
I realized the dream of every woman from Corner-
brook to Port Alberni when I ran my fingers through
his wispy gray hair and gazed into his deepset eyes—made
squinty from gazing Westward through the snows to Winnipeg, looking for the end of the Pipeline.
Seedy and I toured all the Ottawa hot spots—the civil
servants' cafeteria, the Russian Chess Club, Charlotte
Whitton's apartment. We saw all the sights—The Peace
Tower, the National Gallery,  Charlotte Whitton.
It all started when my boss called me into the office
and said, "Find out where that C. D. Howe is, and see
what makes him tick."
What makes him tick, indeed? What makes him drool0
What makes his bones creak? What indeed? If you were
the 87-;, ear-old millionaire golden boy of the Cabinet, you'd
tick  too. Especially if you had ticks.
Now I'm back at my typewriter in dreary Vancouver,
my dream-date ended. But I've still got those rose-pink
memories. And I know that every Canadian woman by navv
i.s asking what I'd do if Seedy Howe were really
I'd give him a bath, that's what I'd do. He's to
Jabour and Beck are attending
the National Federation of Canadian Univesrity Students conference Oct. 8 to 12.
The conference might be one
of the most crucial in the 30
year life of this organization
dedicated to te furtherance of
student rights.
Jabour and Beck are going to
the conference armed with a
referendum which makes withdrawal possible, but they emphasized that they have no intention
of withdrawing before bringing
a full report back to Student's
Council. "We want to stay in if
it is at all possible," they said.
NFCUS has long been a focal
point of general dissatisfaction,
and while U.B.C.'s representatives are not going to "wield a
big stick," they are going to insist upon action.
The reasons for disatisfaction
have been many and varied. Essentially, the charge is that
NFCUS is being ineficiently operated, is misdirected in projects
chosen, and inequally organized.
A general referendum last
March gave the Student's Council the power to withdraw to
form a new Canadian University
association or act to revise the
present organization.
Jabour and Beck feel that revision is necessary if NFCUS is
to become a functional body representing students in their best
interests. They will first examine
the intentions of NFCUS and
then investigate the structure
at the meeting.
Proposals which they will extend and which could split the
conference wide open and lead
lo a new organization are:
1. The elimination of the present full time president to be replaced by a .-tudent president
to serve from his campus. Also
a permanent office staff to give
continuity to NFCUS's actions
and public relations personnel
to publicize the actions of
NFCUS throughout the Dominion. They would like to see a
"stronger central office to abolish the present unstable construction which can never accomplish any one thing."
. A drastic change in its programme. At present it is felt,
that NFCUS is "spreading itself
too thin" in trying to maintain
its social service programme.
They want "a few well chosen
aims, well accomplished" instead
of as presently "trying too much

Think Positively
It's customary, we know, for the Ubyssey to be sneering
and cynical in tone, and negative in the extreme. This is
probably as it should be; for more, not less negative thinking is needed in this booster-infested society of ours. Thus,
we feel a trifle guilty in saying anything nice about anything; but there are some occasions when we can't restrain
ourselves. Thursday's Club Day was one of those occasions.
For years, Club Day has existed solely for the purpose
of attracting new members. This year, something new was
addted. This time the event aLso served as a celebration of
the very fact that UBC has such a uniquely active club
The presence of one of the University's most distin- -
quished friends, Dr. A. E. Grauer as keynote speaker set the
tone for the whole occasion. Dr. Grauer had a varied extracurricular career at UBC, and his speech contained some
excellent variations on the old "join a club" theme. Much of
what Mr. Grauer learned at UBC, we're sure, was acquired
in the clubrooms.
UCC member Charlie Connaghan who organized the
event, deserves profuse congratulations from all of us; and
the Ubyssey for once is glad to offer them.
Are You Integrated?
(Editor's Note: And now, here's a few negative thoughts
on Club Day, supplied by City Editor Jerry Brown. Bitter
and maladjusted, obviously).
Another 4,000 chuckle-heads signed up for clubs yesterday if we are to believe the news columns of this paper.
Another 4,000 chuckle-heads have been bamboozled
into sacrificing much of their valuable time for such inane
things as painting posters, skating, playing with radios and
motion picture cameras, and, of all things, pepping us up.
The last thing we want done is to have some professional
pepsters take charge of our spirit.
Before a vast hoary cry reverberates from pillar to totem
pole let us explain that we are fairly proud of the autonomy this university i.s developing among the student organizations.
What we are not proud of is that we are rapidly losing
sight of what a university is for. We have taken moving
pictures (drop around and see some deathless shots of
Yellowstone National) painted posters in fruitless election
campaigns, and clowned at football games. But not at the expense of University.
A knowledgeable lady friend of ours says that there
are more than 97 clubs on campus counting Greek letter
societies. This is about 85 clubs too many. What wo dispute
is that equal status and recognition is given to too many
small special interest clubs, the aims of which are satiation of
interests which have little to do with why we are ostensibly
at University.
Professors perforce are required to retire from the intellectual battle field after lectures while eager students ply
their movie cameras,  tape  recorders  et.  al.
Our 4,000 joiners "integrate" and "round out" their lives
with petty occupations while more important doings remain
The operation has gone too far. Self-righteou ;. well-integrated, cocksure, "happy" people will decry this as unreal
and mediaeval.
But we shall remain curious and happy in our 99 and
fourty-four hundreds percent pure ivory tower and take advantage of university
Boom Blamed For
Socred Victory
(From The Toronto Globe and Mail)
The people of British Columbia know little, and probably
care less about the mysterious
doctrines of Social Credit. For
all that, they have gone to the
polls in record numbers and
given the Social Credit government of Premier W. A. C. Bennett a mighty accolade, returning it to power with 39 seats
in the 52-member legislative
assembly against the 28 seats
it held in the previous 48-mem-
ber house.
There is no mystery about
the Bennett government's triumph. Theoretically (but only
theoretically) it stands for Social Credit. Actually, it stands
for vigorous and imaginative
development of British Columbia's resources; and that is why
the B. C. voters approve of it.
The Bennett) government has
made mistakes and generated
scandals. It will continue, perhaps, to do both. But B.C. people seem willing to write these
oft as incidental costs of the
government's high-pressure program. They are willing to forgive the shortcomings of an
administration which, as they
see it, docs things, goes places,
gets results.
The Bennett government has,
and ran upon, an impressive
record of achievement. It is
building great bridges across
the province's waterways; one,
over the Fraser, will cost some
$30,000,000. It is pushing a massive highway construction
program .The government-owned Pacific Great Eastern Railway, once a standing joke because it started nowhere and t
ended nowhere, now connects
Vancouver with Prince George.
It is being extended to Dawson Creek, and Mr. Bennett
has said he will take it as far
as the Yukon if the latter agrees
to annexation by B.C.
Less important, but showing
equal or greater political courage, was his government's modernization of B.C.'s antiquated
liquor laws three years ago—
just one year after it came into
For the future, Mr. Bennett
has promised more of the same
—expansion in all directions.
Particularly, he has promised
'resolute steps" toward the establishment of a steel industry
in B. C. Other B. C. governments, to be sure, have expressed the same intention. But
when the Bennett government
says it is going to do something,
that something has a way of
getting done—regardless of the
difficulties, or indeed the dangers, involved.
To sum up, Mr. Bennett and
his colleagues have enormous
confidence in  themselves, and
in their province, and in the
province's future. Its voters,
in return, would seem to have
confidence in Mr. Bennett.
From all of which a moral may
be drawn in every provincial
capital and especially, at Ottawa.
Are the Canadians who live
in B.C. basically different from
the Canadians who live elsewhere? Are not all the people
of this country eager for vigorous expansion? Do not all
of them appreciate courage and
imagination in their political
leaders? Given the choice, will
they not vote for action rather
than apathy, for faith rather
than fear?
We have it from Trade Minister Howe (via a visiting Russian) that there will be a Dominion election next year. A
party which appealed to the
people of Canada in the same
way as Premier Bennett appeals to the people of B.C.
wold have, we think, an excellent chance of winning that
Let it pledge a program of
large-scale, coast-to-coast development, let it show enough
courage and energy to fulfill
that pledge; and it will win,
like Mr. Bennett, in a walk.
Strained Relations Loom

commented favorably on a suggestion, made by a New York
University economist named
Ernest vanden Haag, that U.S.
colleges and universities consider making long-term loans
to talented students who could
not otherwise, without a direct
subsidy, afford college or professional training. A rather similar proposal has now been put
forward by Ricardo A. Mestres,
the treasurer of Princeton University, who calls his plan
"Study Now, Pay Later." Noting that tuition fees at the overage private university now cover only about half thc full cost
of providing a college education, Mr. Mestres suggests that
tuition fees be doubled, and
that students be pcrmited to
pay for part of their tuition —
as they will presumably be
paying for practically everything else—on the installment
To free college treasurers
from the unpleasant task of
hounding alumni for their
monthly payments. Mr. Mestres
proposes the establishment of
a   General   Education   Accept-
(From Fortune Magazine)
ance Corporation, to which colleges could sell their tuition
notes at a small discount. There
would have to be special provisions, he observes, for students who enter poorly paid
but socially useful professions.
But since colleges would still
have scholarship funds at their
disposal, he suggests such cases
could be dealt with by "retroactive scholarships" that
would cancel all or part of the
recipient's  debt  obligation.
Mr. Mestres' plar. obviously
raises some rather tricky questions. For one thing, colleges
would have to decide whether
retroactive scholarships should
be limited to teachers, ministers, social workers, and the
like,   or   whether   they   should
also be granted to poets, painters, and housewives. The housewife presents a particularly
awkward dilemma, since Mr.
Mestres' scheme might result
in pricing some college women
out of the marriage market.
A young Princeton A.B., for
instance, might well hesitate to
marry a Vassar girl who owes
the General Education Acceptance Corporation $28.35 a
month for len years. These are
minor problems, however, and
Mr. Mestres' proposal makes
remarkably good sense. It
would not only permit a substantial increase in professorial
salaries but would enable colleges to use their endowments,
as Mr. Mestres puts it, to "provide the vital venture capital
so necessary for our development and improvement."

Pep Club president Mike Jeffery s attack on the lack of cooperation from Engineers has
been labeled "in bad taste" by
EUS social co-ordinator Michael
Eearlier this week, Jeffery
issued a statement strongly criticizing Engineers lack of cooperation at a joint Pep Club-
Engineers bonfire rally last Friday night and the scanty Redshirt turnout at Saturday's football game for an Engineer-Frosh
cheering competition.
"I could get equally as hot,
but I don't feel like it" said Rich,
■who lauded both Engineers and
Pep Club members participating
in the rally preparations.
Jefferys chief accusations were
that no Engineers were present
at the 6:30 p.m. start of the rally
to get things going and to start
the fire. He also blamed the Engineers for not producing song
sheets as planned,
Rich contends the night fire
wardon who had not been foretold by the Fire Chief of a licence for the occasion, refused to
Jet two members of his committee start the fire. "I can't [
really imagine a crowd of several hundred people standing
around waiting for someone to
strike a match,"  he said.
He also "personally delivered
the song sheets, 200 of them, to
Jefferys residence."
Jeffery and Rich were the
only two committee members
who knew the complete plans,
and both were absent. Rich from
domestic difficulties, and Jeffery for unkown reasons.
As for the football turnout,
Rich queried: "how many upperclassmen would be aroused
to shout against the Frosh in thc
rain?" Total attendance at the
game was no more than 400 including the 50 Engineers present.
In closing, Rich stated the
EUS is "prepared, willing and
desirous to support any propsals
on the campus," and said he
"was hurt by Jeffery's attack
after the cooperation and personal understanding of the problem between the two groups."
As for the unfavorable publicity the Engineers traditionally get, Rich said "it doesn't do
us any harm. You might even
say it was good publicity, in that
it is better than none at all."

Women's Undergraduate Society President Lynda Gates has
stolen Carrie Nation's thunder in
a controversy centering around
a Radio Society-sponsored cocktail party in Brock Hall,
Miss Gates vigorously opposed
a proposaj at Wednesday afternoon's Council meeting to allow
Radio Society to serve cocktails
at a reception for downtown
radio officials.
Bylaw Nine, Section Two of
the AMS Constitution states that
no intoxicating beverages will
be allowed at student functions
held on the campus. But Radsoc
officials asked Council permission just the same, since they had
already secured permission of
the University Administration.
After lengthy discussion permission was granted, but only
after the real guests were officially designated the hosts. Radsoc is giving the cocktail party
for CKWX Radio officials. But
to circumvent the liquor by-law
the downtown radio group will
officially "play host" to the Radsoc  students.
All Councillors, except Miss
Gates, saw nothing wrong with
evading the by-law, .since Faculty officials had no objection in
this particular case.
Miss Gates was the only Council member to oppose a scheme
to circumvent the student by-law
by which the reception could be
sponsored by Radio Station
Ilor argument: "bending" the
loiter of tile law would be the
thin edge of the wedge in allowing liquor at campus student-
sponsored functions.
Councillors, pointed out the
ambiguity of the term "student
function" in the by-law, and suggested the Radsoc reception
could escape classification under
tho by-law since it would be held
on a Saturday night, when the
University is officially closed.
No bottles would be in evidence, Councillors also pointed

Gates i.s a member, will consider
proposing an amendment to the

some just interested.
The event was officially opened shortly after 12:30 by Dr. A.
E. "Dal" Grauer, president ot the
B. C. Electric Company, and
former UBC student.
Over 60 clubs were represented in the drive for new members,
divided into categories of religious, faculty, literary, international, ethical, political and activity.
Numbered maps of the building were ln.nded out to those entering the Armories between
12:30 and 12:45 and winners of

Freddy Wood Celebrates
Two score and two years
ago, before the great 'flu epidemic and Elvis Presley, a man
by the name of Frederick
Wood gathered around him a
group of would-be thespians
to found a drama club.
Tcday it is the only amateur
theatrical group of its nature
in existence in Canada.
UBC Players' Club, the oldest campus group, was founded
in 1915. Since that time, veiled
in the tradition of the notorious 'Green Room" its record
has been one of continual success.

Next month will launch
its 40th annual fall program
of performances.
Only twice in the club's history has it failed to produce
a fall production of some kind,
in 1915 when it was in development stages and in 1918 during the flu epidemic.
Three one-act plays will constitute the program this year,
including "Pullman Car Hiawatha" by Thornton Wilder,
"Waltz Time" by Philip Johnson and "Thor, With Angels"
by Christopher Fry.
The first noon hour effort
this year will be a program
of monologues on October 12,
to be followed by a one-act
comedy on November 2.
The aim of the club is "to
present plays of artistic merit
which wouldn't ordinarily be
presented by reperatory companies," club president Wayne
Hubble explained.

An appeal was made today for
the co-operation of everone to
aid in the current anti-litter

green campus," said Dean Gage,
Dean of Administration and Inter-faculty affairs.
Sore spots in the past have
been the parking lots and amphitheatre class rooms. Both places
have been found cluttered with
lunch wrappers after the noon-
hour period. It was suggested
that students hang on to their
litter until they come to a refuse
No group is blamed, as these
areas are accessable to all,    "I
am looking for co-operation, not
condemnation," said the Dean,
Also criticized was the policy
of notices left up long after the
events named over, and levoing
leaflets where the wind could
scatter them. A reminder was
given that nailing posters to
trees, as well as being damaging,
is also against university rules.
Employing people to clean up
would mean cutting down on
more needed services elsewhere.

Buildings and Grounds Assistant Superintendent Tom Hughes
advised students to leave their
cars parked and not drive them
from class to class. He admits
that the system isn't perfect, but
says  that  there  will  be   more
room to park when the new Arts
building is completed.
"There is still lots of room on
the south end of the campus beside the Memorial gymnasium
and the Wesbrook building," he
said. However, students seem
to feel this is too far to walk.
They are parking their cars in
front of driveways, on corners
and out on the pavement. With
most drivers travelling at 30
miles per hour in a 15 mile per
hour zone, many of these cars are
in danger of being sideswiped.

his hand that may keep him
out of the line-up for a good
part of the season.
Coach Pete Lusztig's swimming team has been practicing
vigorously for a tentative scheduled swimming meet before
Christmas. Lusztig emphasizes
the fact that anyone wishing to
join the team should turn out
for practice Monday, Wednesday
and Friday afternoons at 5.30.

team this year.

prospects are Tom Lewis, haling

the 'Birds playing Saturday and Monday, and the Chiefs
Tomorrow's game, between the 'Birds and Sapperton
Athletics, is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Varsity's Mclnnes Field.

Division, should not provide too much opposition for Varsity.

uled to meet Mt. Pleasant Legion,
last season's 1st Division Champions. The outcome of this contest will be some measure of
Varsity's fitness, and the value
of three weeks extensive workouts a week should be proved.
The Legion, differing only in
one or two players from last
season's championship team, will
be a tough nut for the untried
'Birds to crack at this early
point in the season. However, the
Legion too has a game on Saturday, so are at no advantage in
that respect.
Coach Ed. Luckett is still in a
quandary o\*:r his choice of
players to fill at least two positions. With several players of
nearly equal calibre fighting for
the open spots, final decisions
will be difficult to make.
One bright note in the at present rather unsettled forward line
situation is that Bruce Ashdown
has obtained permission from
North Shore Aircos of the PCL
to sign with the 'Birds. Aircos,
with whom Ashdown played
during the summer league, have
only two games remaining, and

inside right, who plays for Hale-
cos of the PCL, will be unavailable for this week-end at least,

lineup will probably be goal,

soon; right wing, Fred Green.
Varsity's second team, the
Chiefs, have received a promotion to the 3rd Division of the
Mainland League despite dwelling in the lower regions of the
4th Division last season.
Coach Bruce Ashdown had no
explanation for the surprise promotion, but feels that with the
large number of players available this year his team will justify the move.
The Chiefs play Sunday at 2
p.m. against Sunset Community
Centre, at Sunset Memorial Park.
