UBC's darling, daring swimmer, Carol Gregory,
expresses her determination before plunging into the
treacherous waters of the campus lilypond at noon today.
She clutched her good-luck charm and smiled at photographers, "Golly, I just know I'll make it."

Students May Have
To Provide Housing
Facilities Themselves
UBC students may have to provide new housing facilities themselves, Dr. Gordon
M.  Shrum, housing administrator, indicated Wednesday.
"Unless the students really put on a drive" there is little chance of getting new dormitories soon.
Heated words are expected to
fly across Brock Lounge tonight at 8:30 when UBC's United
Nations Club holds a Mock Gen-
eral Assembly.
Suez Crisis is the issue at
"English imperialism is gone,
gone, gone" said Gamal Jabour,
representing the Egyptian Block.
"We are going to fight to the
death to preserve our national
integrity. We will fight to the
death,"  he added.
"Isreal has had a raw deal
from everybody" contends Larry Rotenburg, Israeli representative.
Seventy-six delegates representing every country now in
the UN will participate in the
model assembly.
UBC Geology professor Harry Warren, president of the Vancouver branch of the United Nations Association will preside
over the meeting.
Other student speakers include Derek Fraser and John
Green, McGoun Cup debators
for the university, and a number
of foreign students.
It was on the same occasion
two years ago that the Brock
burned down. Officials of the
UN club have expressed the
hope that tonights meeting will
be "Just as lively" but not
"quite so fiery."
Dean Shrum urged immediate
action when it became apparent
Tuesday that a new medical science building is next on the priority list after completion of the
new Arts and Sciences building.
"Although definite priority for
the next building has not been
settled, work on the plans for
the new medical building is going ahead while plans for the
new dorms are being held in
"Students should press their
claims very hard," he said, because housing is "getting worse
every year."
The squeeze play between the
desperate lack of money, classrooms and housing has forced
faculty heads and housing administrators into the position of
vicing with each other for a
share of the yearly $1,000,000
Acording to Dr. Shrum "it
doesn't matter how we get the
money." He suggested interest
free loans from the provincial
government, outright gifts from
the same source and gifts from
"We must get out of competition with classrooms," he said.
When it becomes a choice between classrooms and housing
for a specific grant, classrooms
usually get preference.
Dr. Shrum pointed out that
once $2,000,000* was found for
the first 400 unit housing structure that the revenue from it and
other existing housing would
provide enough capital to finance any further housing construction.
Six to seven hundred students
were turned away by the hous-

I Know I'll Make It
Holy smokes, the day has
come. All that waiting and
wondering is over now, and today I'll know whether or not I
have what it takes.
You know, now that the time
has come, I feel as if nothing
will stop me. Before, I was
worried about the temperature
and my health, but those things
arc no longer important.
The only important thing now
is to make it across the lilypond.
I've just got to do it, and I know
I'll make it.
Golly, I have to thank everybody who's been so nice to me.
And it's not because I feel I
have to, but because I want to.
Everyone from President Mac
Kenzie down to Mr. Shrum have
been just terrific. You know,
it really makes you feel swell to
know that everybody is standing
behind you, hoping and praying
you'll make it.
I wish each and everyone cf
you could join me today in the
pool. Golly, wouldn't it be swell
if we could all achieve our life
purposes together? Jeepers.
But I guess all of you don't
even want to swim. And golly,
to each his own, I always say.
Frankie, Sandy and Mike will
all be in the pilot boat urging
me on, and I just hope they
don't have to do too much urging. I hope I have it inside me
to get me across.
I went to the medical service yesierday. and thev told  <v.t
my cold (golly, I got it Tuesday,
and I've really been scared to
tell anybody) wasn't too bad,
and they didn't think I'd get
pneumonia or anything, but that
I'd  better be  careful.
Gosh I'm surprised. I didn't
think my little swim (but not
little to me) would attract any
attention, but, do you know,
that wonderful national institution. CBC, is going to take
pictures  of  ME and MY swim.
And golly, you'll just die
when I tell you it's going to be
broadcasted. Do you really
think it's worth all that?
Anyway, somebody does, and
it makes me feel just super, and
you all enough, not now or
Jeepers, I might even see you

Please, Please
Before we begin citing facts and figures on the needs
of this university we will continue to point out the acute-
ness of the general situation here at UBC. We follow this
policy for two reasons. First, because we are checking our
facts to be sure they are accurate before we present them
to the student body. Secondly, because we hope the gentlemen in Victoria will shake themselves out of their lethargy
and vote a sizeable grant to the University's Board of Governor's before drastic student action becomes necessary. We
believe, perhaps idealistically, that a government should lead
its electorate, not be pushed by it. We still have hopes that
the government's apparent blindness to UBC's requirements
i.s only temporary.
Ordinarily, we are immediately suspicious of the word
"temporary." It's such a vague and meaningless word. For
example, we have over one hundred "temporary" buildings
on our campus that have been "temoprary" for at least
ten years. All our male students are housed in '^temporary"
huts that are drafty, damp, noisy, unsanitary, and a constant
fire hazard. Most of our women students live under the same
conditions. The huts we use as "temporary" classrooms are
"temporarily" overcrowded. Even the new building housing
the Faculty of Education is a "temporary" one. This is false
economy and duplication of effort of the worst kind.
Unfortunately, these complaints are only the beginning.
If this university is to maintain its high academic rating,
it must increase its departments, staff, and facilities to keep
pace with the increasing demands of our social and economic
society. It also needs a greatly increased capital grant for
the facilities necessary for a complete program. We hope,
for example, that the next Cabinet Minister who visits the
campus takes due notice of the visual, acoustical, and functional monstrosity we must call an "Auditorium." We hope
Mr. Eric Martin, when he visited the campus recently, was
invited to our cafeteria. We doubt that he was, though, because he's probably seen brighter, cheerier, more efficient
dispensaries of food in Oakalla and the Boy's Industrial
The problems universities throughout the continent are
now facing are a direct result of the long-followed policy of
priming the economic pump with one handle, while the other
hand neglects' the educational and technological demands
placed upon universities because the pump-priming itself has
created new jobs and new skills. The present government
could earn itself a reputation as an enlightened one if it
faces the problem squarely and grants UBC a large sum for
capital expenditure.
Radiation Level Mounts:
Lets Stop A-Tests Now
"Fragments of bomb debris
from the Pacific tests are now
turning up in the bones of people all over the world," writes
Dr. Ralph Lapp, atomic physicist, In the October issue of the
Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.
He asserts that the world is 40
times nearer disastrous atmospheric poisoning than the Atomic Energy Commission admits
in its latest report to the Congress.
Dr. Lapp is not here referring to the genetic effects of
radiation on unborn generations, but to the effects of
Strontium-90, which can cause
bone cancer in persons now
Strontium-90, or Sr90 in phy-
sicist's shorthand, is one of the
most plentiful elements in the
fireball of a fission bomb burst.
Because of its initial gaseous
state, it is carried into the stratosphere as high as 100,000
feet. It then circles the globe
5-10 years, falling out at the
rate of 10-20 percent a year. It
is flushed to earth by rain and
snow, deposited on pastures,
eaten by dairy cows, passed to
people through milk, and
comes to rest in human bones.
Using British data it is now
possible. Dr. Lapp writes, to
establish the Maximum Permissible Concentration of Sr90
for the human race and to figure how many bomb bursts
will take us beyond the threshold of safety. Bombs totalling 260 megatons (a megaton
equals a million tons of TNT)
Come And (Set It
would precipitate this critical
stage. So far the Americans
and Russians have exploded 40
megatons, or 15 percent of the
limit. And the testing rate is
rising, with British tests commencing next spring. Air force
officers now regard 20 megatons as a "normal bomb" and
have discussed testing a 50 megaton explosive. Only 13 of
the "normal" bombs or five
of the largest bombs would
push the world to the brink.
The above maximum risk is
calculated for peacetime, having in mind fhat children are
far more susceptible than
adults to bone cancer. But in
wartime, wheri the calculated
risks must be higher, Dr. Lapp
estimates the government
would set a maximum safety
level 50-times higher than in
peace, thus accepting the certainty that millions of non-
combatants would contract
bone cancer.
These facts cannot be unknown to the AEC. But the
AEC philosophy is so keyed
to continued testing that Dr.
Gordon Dunning, health physicist in the AEC headquarters,
stated in a recent report to
"Since continuation of our
nuclear testing program is
mandatory to the defense of
the country, the problem
then becomes one of defining these risks and evaluating them in the light of
what is best for the peoples
of the free world."
In plain English this means
that the AEC will decide what
is best for the human race.
Dr. Gioacchini Failla, a top
radiation advisor to the AEC,
was even more frank when he
told LIFE magazine: "The question of how many H-bombs can
be safely exploded is irrelevant. To remain free we must
develop      powerful      nuclear
bombs. We must continue the
testing program." We are not
told how long we can do so
without liberating more radioactive material than the human
race can endure.
Yet in the face of all this
President Eisenhower declares
that continued testing of large
scale nuclear weapons is not
a proper subject for debate. He
has rebuked Adlai Stevenson
for even raising the question,
and in his statement in reply
completely ignores the health
hazard involed in testing.
Discussion of the matter,
Eisenhower says, "can lead
only to confusion at home,"
revealing his ignorance of the
part such temporary "confusion" customarily plays in the
working of the democratic process.
The only hope for an early
end to this strontium recklessness lies in the sort of bold US
leadership Adlai Stevenson has
proposed: cessation of tests as
a first step to putting the malevolent genie back in its bottle.

Why Not A Campus Pub?
You've just finished a grueling two-hour lab in Creature
Convenience Construction —
(bird bath building), — your
latest girl friend has thrown
you over in favour of Kierkegaard (who you assume to be
President of the Slavonic Circle) and the bottom has just
fallen out of the asparagus futures on the stock market,
which means that your old man
can't afford to buy you a '56
Jag this month. What, in conclusion, would be more satisfying than to be. able to walk
a mere fifty steps across campus to the varsity pub?
Sitting philosophically over
a few beer (the beginning and
the end of all things in some
estimations) the problems of
your life become matters for
laughter, or even hysteria. Just
consider how stimulating the
lectures would be if student
and professor were able to
quaff genially prior to the
eleven-thirty class on "Intravenous Feeding?" Or the gusto
with which the AMS Elections
would be held after the audience had partaken of a couple
all round?
If spirit is lacking on the
UBC campus, the carefree at
mosphere and spirit of brotherhood that always prevails in
a pub could be the inspiration
for greater things. Imagine,
even Engineers sitting in reverent respect while Alade Akesode  directs   the  ASUS.
Need I go on? (No, not you
Fotheringham, sit down). Well,
just look at the advantages. No
parking problems, road blocks
can be set up with ease, and
what is more the RCMP would
be able to catch more minors in
one pub than anywhere else in
British Columbia.
And what a tourist attraction. Beside the campus pub,
the Polynesian Room would
have as much atmosphere as
the Aggie Ball without liquor.
From all across North America and Europe, in fact from
all over the world students
would flock to UBC for an education on the friendliest, most
well-equipped campus in Canada.
What is more, here is the
answer to our American football problem. With the fantastic revenue that such a campus institution would bring in,
the AMS could offer lucrative
scholarships to those grotesque
heroes that give Mr. Gnup violent delight. With more victories in the football season so
campus athletic enthusiasm
would increase.
Of course the profits could
be plowed back into the business until UBC boasted a pub
(commonly known as a beer
parlour', a cocktail bar, restu-
rant, cabaret and even, after
further consideration of course,
a couple of bowling alleys.
"I AM SO HAPPY . . .
So now I take you to the
"Thunderbird" (a good UBC
name, according to tradition).
As we enter the building —
constructed on the site of the
old Fraser River project—we
see two anthropology professors chuckling over two large
glasses of tomato juice. In the
far corner, beneath a totem
pole designed from the profiles ot the Students Council
of 1933, the Civil Liberties
Union is meeting. From the
annex ninety-five yards down
tiie room the strains of — "I
am so happy that I am ..."
come roaring through the air.
"Waiter, twenty-four here."
The two of us sit down for
a quiet evening.
"What'll we discuss tonight,
Myron?    Getting a job?" Classes Off For
All afternoon classes will be
cancelled Friday for the annual Fall Congregation.
Degrees will be awarded to
students who completed their
credit at UBC's summer session this  year and honorary
LLD's will be conferred on
outstanding citizens of Canada

The convocation address will
be given by Dr. Stephen Roberts, president of the University of Australia.
Honorary LLD's will also be
awarded to Dr. Sydney Smith,

Vancouver city council Tuesday afternoon gave the green
light to U.B.C. to proceed with
plans for next month's Homecoming parade.
Board of Administration held
the issue in abeyance for some
time in spite of appeals from
representatives of the Homecoming committee to approve
the affair.
Kathy Archibald and Graham Mosely met with the Board
Tuesday afternoon.
Miss Archibald and Mosely
assured the officials that the
students would be well behaved, that no drinking would
take place on the floats and
that no student would ride
back to the campus on floats
following the parade.
Above all, the coroner's recommendations made at an inquest into a fatality which occurred last year, will be carried out.
Ralph R. Brown, parade mar-
shall, will be charged with carrying out the details of the
homecoming ceremonies. Council has advised that police will
be tougher this year in order
to prevent a recurrence of last
year's fatality.

However, twenty thousand dollars has already been spent on

Former Minister of Education
Ray Williston has stated that
the university needs $30,000,000
to meet present and future needs.
Dean Walter H. Gage has indicated any appeals students make
should not be for specific facilities such as housing. Any student action, he feels, should be
voiced in cooperation with the
adminstration and directed towards acquisition of a government grant which would serve
the university's overall needs.

Mr. Perinbam comes to Vanvouver as part of his annual
cross-Canada tour to co-ordinate and publicize W.U.S. activities. In addition to its widely-known student exchange service, W.U.S. performs other functions vital to students throughout the non-Soviet world. Lately, it has launched a program of
building hostels on Egyptian, Israeli and Pakastani campi.

These 100%, high bulk or-

campus fashion parade this
year. Because they won't
stretch or sag on you they'll
always be tops in appearance. They're warm, too, but
without the weight of ordinary sweaters. Launder it
yourself—it won't shrink. 20
shades, conservative and
bright; sizes 36 to 44. Low-

Of interest to every
student is W.U.S.'s student aid
program, as everyone on Campus
has contributed a dollar towards
it in his A.M.S. fees. Of the
$7,600 thus accumulated, 75 percent goes to a scholarship fund—
the largest such fund in any
Canadian university.
On Friday at noon, Mr. Perinbam will address the campus
United Nations Club on Asian
problems. In the evening, hi8
speech to the Canadian Institute
of International Affairs will be
about the Asian Revolution in
the West.
Malay-born and Glasgow-educated, Mr. Perinbam has travelled extensively in Asia, Europe,
the Middle East and the West
Indies. He is therefore a keen
and understanding observer of
world problems.
While in Vancouver, he will
be the guest of Paul Romeril,
W.U.S. scholarship student to
Turkey last year. On Sunday,
Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Hull will
entertain Mr. Perinbam for dinner.
Mr. Perinbam flies to Victoria
to meet the Student Council of
Victoria College for a short while
on Saturday.
