 Frosh Special Events Schedule
Over 1,600 Freshmen are
facing one of the most active,
intensive, and perhaps significant weeks in their lives.
For   weeks   committees   have
been  planning  each  minute  of i
"Frosh     Orientation     Wee k." |
Everybody  Is  making  plans  to|
attract    Frosh    to   their    club,
group,   political   and   religious
views;   make   sure   that   Froph
think, feel, see, every aspect of
university;  impress  Frosh with
the "rr.eaningfulness" of university;   humble   them   with   their
own Insignificance. Disgrace and
humiliate them. Uplift and enthrall them.
On pages 10 and 11 of this
edition is a detailed agenda. Each
of the events is designed to
acquaint the frosh with some
aspect of the University.
Not mentioned is the traditional hazing.
"We're going to be kinder
than usual this year," said Ben
Trevino, Frosh Week Chairman.
"There will be only two days
on which regalia must be worn
—Wednesday and Thursday—
but of course we suppose that
the hazing will be a trifle bit
more concentrated in that short
space of time."
The "brains and brawn" of the
university—lawyers and engineers—have joined forces and are
meeting in closed door sessions
to plan for a Kangaroo Court.
Unlucky and unsuspecting
Frosh will be' arrainged and
charged with breaches of regalia
rules and omissions in knowledge
of   significant   facts   about   the
university, like not knowing
"Hail UBC."
Hope has been expressed that
"repitition of unfortunate incidents that have occurred in the
past will be avoided."
A monster pep rally Monday
noon will start the week swinging as Mike Jeffery of the Pep
Club presents Mickey Katz, Cave
Supper Club headliner, as well
as UBC's cheerleaders, Frank
Gnup, and other campus personalities.
Another   highlight   of   Frosh
Week is President N. A. M. Mao-
Kenzie's address Wednesday ta
Redshirt leaders have inform*
ed us that as their "contribution"
to the success of Frosh Orientation Week, they will assure
attendance at important event*
by reluctant freshmen.
Events will be climaxed Satur-
day   by   the   Frosh   Reception*
staged in the Armories, after
UBC Thunderbirds opener with
Pacific Lutheran.

Neville Scarfe, Dean of the new College of
Education predicts great things for UBC's latest academic
The new school, situated in the parking lot beside
the Armories, will centralize British Columbia's elementary and secondary teacher education.
School   of   Education
Replaces Old  Normal
UBC has a new College of
It has been said that it will
be widely acclaimed as one of
the best in Canada.
Neville V. Scarfe, new dean of
the school, and head of the Manitoba crew which migrated here
earlier in the summer, agrees.
''In no other province are
organizations concerned with
education so unanimously and
enthusiastically committed to
raising sandards of education,"
he said.
The impressive building that
will house the new College has
been erected On the site of a
former student parking lot. With
its 13 rooms the stucco-covered
masterpiece- of modern architecture is expected to accommodate
600 -students.   >
Enrollment in the new College of Education will swell
UBC's total to over 7400.
Courses are offered leading to
two general objectives: elementary school teaching, and secondary school teaching. The first
is a short one or two-year, all-
purpose course, given chiefly to
alleviate the crying need in B.C.
for well-trained teachers. The
second is a more intensified
course (lasting five years) for
high-school teachers. This course
i.s a prerequisite to the degree
of Bachelor of Education.
All old courses have been
thrown   out   and    replaced   by
newer, more practical ones.
UBC's new College of Education will be the only complete
teachers' training establishment
west of the Rockies.
Dawn Lineups Gone
Record 7.200 Enroll
The "stupid practice" of lining up for half the night
in order to register early will be ended this year, according
to John A. Parnell, U.B.C. associate registrar.
"Camping" in front of the Armories in the wee small
hours of the morning has been the procedure in previous
years by freshmen to get favoured timetables.
Chief aim has been to avoid
Saturday classes, necessitated by
ihe size of the enrollment.
Now class sections will be filled up in order; students who register late in the week will have
the same opportunity of getting
Monday, Wednesday, Friday lectures, as those who arrive early
the first day. First day arrivals
should also be prepared to be
assigned to Tuesday, Thursday,
Saturday lectures.
Registration this year is expected to break a nine year record. The peak enrollment was
9.374 in 1947, at the height of
the veterans' return to college.
Officials predict that over
2,000 new students will be registering this week. 1,600 of this
number will be freshmen, the
rest will be entering UBC at different levels.
Total registration is expected
to exceed   7,200.
The new registration policy is
aimed at reducing the advantage
of coming early and will assure
equal opportunity to students.
In adition to the bumper crop
of freshmen, largest since the
war, the ranks will be swelled
by students registering in the
new School of Education.
Priority numbers will still be
issued according to Mr. Parnell
but only in the event of large
numbers waiting to get into the
Armories. This will allow those
with low priority to return later
on and not lose a time advantage.
Students who are confronted
with the necessity of taking Saturday classes may apply for a
change if classes would interfere with a Saturday job taken
to aid financing of education.
According to a spokesman
from the office of the registrar
changes in timetable to accommodate students with a Saturady
job will be made if class-work
hours actually conflict and upon
written or verbal application.

U.B.C. Thunderbirds roll into their '56 football
season on Saturday, September 22 in a contest against
the Western Ontario Mustangs.
The annual tilt is the fourth Paraplegic Bowl
game with the massive three hundred pound sculpted
Churchill Trophy at stake. Proceeds are going to the
Canadian Paraplegic Association to provide funds to aid
in the rehabilitation of the handicapped.
Halftime entertainment at the game which will
combine Canadian rules with unlimited downfield blocking will feature a mile relay race. University of Western
Ontario will bring a strong team west to challenge track
coach Peter Mullins' quartet which won handily in a similar race against McGill trackmen at last years game.
Tickets for the game are one dollar for students
or free with an '"A" card.
Cairn Rites
Held - Lest
We Forget"
It hasn't always been so good.
UBC has had stirring beginnings,
and our share of pioneers. To
one group in particular we draw
your attention.
The spirit and determination
of the class of '22 will be commemorated in the annual Cairn
Ceremony to be staged 11:30
a.m. on the Mall, Friday.
The Cairn Ceremony relives
the Great Trek, a chapter of—
even the beginning of—UBC history which is unmatched by
almost any other university.
~ In 1922, eleven years after
Point Grey had been earmarked;
as the University of British Col*
umbia, ihe university was itiU
housed in a group of shacks on-
part of ihe General Hospital
grounds in aFirview.
Tired of their "Falrview Huts"
the students went after government action on the "real thing."
They swarmed over the city and
gathered a petition to the government containing 55,000 signatures.
Then came ihe Great Trek.
Students paraded through
downtown Vancouver in jalopies, then gathered en masse at
the site of the present university
gates. Marching on foot through
bush along what was only a trail
then, they gathered rocks oa
their way and piled them into a
mound when they reached the
university site. |
Demonstrations   lasted   for
The government was impressed and invited a student delegation to attend a sitting of the
legislature to present their case,
a move unprecedented in the
province's history.
Three years later students
moved into permanent buildings
on the campus.
Three years after that, copies
of the 55,000 signatures, gathered by the students, were placed
into a permanent cairn constructed on the main hall to commemorate the Great Trek of '22.

•'What WILL I wear, Mom?"
It's on the lips of every
first year student, now spending nights with mother poring over current fashion manifestoes.
And we, the upperclassmen,
hope their selection will be of
the finest taste, for it is only
the first year class that ever
conforms to accepted styles.
The rest of us will be audience to the whims of Vogue
and the youth of 1956.
One thing we will not tolerate, and that is the high school
attitude towards dressing. "To
vary is to sin," shall no longer
be your motto, rather, "progress, not politics."
We expect to see.the usual
eastern campus clothes dotting
the Library lawn until the
weather gets so bad as to discourage bermuda shorts and
There'll probably be the occasional siren who dresses only
for the men, and not to sorority dictates. . . (She's at least

But for those who worry
about reputation as well as
popularity we suggest a modest
wardrobe of no more than nine
First, and foremost, comes
the sweater; it can be worn
with skirts, jumpers, suits, and
fraternity pins. It, also is an
Next, is the stadium coat. It
will not rate you touchdowns
(nothing rates that high here),
but is attractive as well as
practical. It's the sort of thing
you can wear anything under.
Coupled with this is the inevitable raincoat. This should
be conservative enough to last
until your, BA, but different
enough to sort you out from
the COTC.
Shoes come next in line. In
addition to scuff-proof black
suede heels, every girl should
have a sensible pair of oxfords—these come in white,
natural, pink, blue and plaid
We forgot the skirt. This is
almost a necessity and should
be of durable material and
well lined. Much sitting is done
in these, also walking, so we
discourage the banana-peel,
ankle length style.
And then there is THE
DRESS (advertised as "for
every occasion," but practice
has found them useful only in
the evening). Black is good if
you'll be having dates, but any
color will do under size 20.
Three more, eh?.
Well, there's always another
dress, to take over before you
get THE one to the cleaners,
but that's rather dull. Let's
say that slacks are of obvious
neoessity, particularly to resident students to whom the
Graham cliffs hold an attraction. They hold an attraction
for day-students, too.
By all means, DO NOT FORGET UNDERWEAR. We will
not dictate on this other than
that you do wear some.
Last, but not least, is a stiff
upper lip (this is usually kept,
not worn). But it's a fashion
all frosh must observe if they
are to stay the year.

Brock Ready Next Term
Concrete Poured;
Students  Pay
March 1957 is the target completion date for the long
awaited Brock Hall extension.
Pouring of concrete is well under way.
The extension was designed to
provide more space for campus
clubs. This centralization process will bring under one roof
many   clubs   which   previously
had to meet in inadequate huts
around the campus.
The extension will be joined
to the present structure by a
glassed-in passageway. Added
space will be given to the University Alumni Association and
a new recreation area in the
basement will feature billiard
and ping pong tables.
Cost of the $300,000 building
will be borne by the students.
Each student will pay $5 per
year for seven years through the.
Alma Mater Society fees which
are collected at registration.
Gymnasium was also built by
the students and paid for in a
similar manner.
Clubs to be included in the
new wing are the Camera
Club, Mamooks, Totem, political
clubs, the Varsity Outdoor Club
and others.
Building of the extension is
the culmination of a year of
planning and hard work by the
Student's Council and the Brock
Extension Committee under Ben
Architects for the building ;are
Thompson, Berwick and Pratt.

School   Spirit?   It's
Rare,   But   Its   There
A tiresome amount of verbiage has been devoted to
the lack of "school spirit" at UBC. With monotonous regularity, self-apointed cheerleaders moan about the low attendance at football games, and of the apathy towards student
government. These drumbeaters, to be sure, are correct as far
as they go; for "school spirit"—whatever that spavined phrase
means—isn't all it could be. But aren't the apathy-deplorers
overlooking something?
We refer to a curious habit UBC students have of
occasionally arising up as one man, and accomplishing something exceedingly  worthwhile—always  unexpectedly.
During last year's North Shore floods, for instance,
a hurry-up call for assistance was broadcast by sound-truck
through Fort and Acadia camps. Within minutes, hundreds
of students answered the call, and galloped off to North
Vancouver for a night of highly useful sandbagging.
UBC's Rowing Crew provides another example of
somewhat offbeat brand of "school spirit." With practically
no support—financial or otherwise it has managed to become
one of the finest in the world, surprising a great many people,
and shaming others.
They have brought lasting honor to our University
and our Province, and they've done it—typically—all by themselves.
And this Friday, many of us will gather on the Main
Mall to commemorate that very famous demonstration of
UBC's oddball enthusiasm, the Great Trek. In 1922, when
UBC's campus was a crowded academic slum in Fairview,
students decided to do something about it. They did plenty.
A monster petition of 56,000 signatures demanding
the long-overdue development of UBC's Point Grey site was
presented to the legislature. A downtown parade was organized to dramatize the need. At the end of the parade, students
marched through the bush to the almost-bare Point Grey
campus site, and erected a pile of stones in front of the half-
completed Science Building. Government action came soon
after. The Cairn on the Main Mall today commemorates that
Great Trek, and the spirit that made this campus possible.
All of which goes to show: don't worry too much
about the so-called lack of "school spirit"; if the cause is
good enough, and the method odd enough, UBC will do it—
in an unconventional and quite wonderful way.
Welcome   Back
Tomorrow the Social Credit Party will be returned to
power as the Government of British Columbia. Perhaps
they will lose as many as three seats; more probably, they
will gain several. The voters will have spoken.
The people of B. C. will have re-elected the most misbegotten assortment of cranks, political tricksters and would-
be reactionaries ever to be assembled under one legislature roof; they will have expressed their approval of a
government whose collossal smugness is surpassed only
by its incredible hypocrisy; they will have endorsed a
regime of pseudo-religious egomaniacs that "gets things
done"—but has somehow managed to convince .the voter
that he's not paying through the nose for it.
But that's the way the political ball bounces in B. C.
in A.D. 1956, and what with galloping prosperity and a sen- *
ile opposition, there's little that can be done about  it  for
the present.
So welcome back to power for at least another four
years fellows; but please: Try to remember there's a growing number of us who aren't interested in collecting "Social
Credit dividends".
Were Growing Fast; But
Who II Foot the Bill
That's Growing Every Year?
Editors's notet The following
message, extracted from a CBC
broadcast last December by UBC
President Dr. N. A. M. Mac-
Kensie, discusses the needs of
this growing University, and the
obligations of citisens, industry
— and particularly — governments, in fulflilling those needs.
Students voting in tomorrow's
provincial elections might well
consider which party would ne
best for the University.
Whether we can keep our excellent faculty and in due course
replace them with others equally
good, will depend very largely
on whether the people of this
country and this Province are
prepared to pay them enough
so that they may live decently,
and provide them with adequate
facilities with which to work.
They do not ask much more, compared to the rewards received
by others in our community, but
they must have a certain minimum, and they must have encouragement «nd support, otherwise, for the sake of their wives
and families, they will, with regret, feel it essential to leave
University Education.
This year, we have been asked
to take over all the Teacher
Training in the Province. This
will mean that our Normal
Schools become part of our College of Education, (which will be
organized as a Faculty within
the University); the teaching to
be done here in Vancouver and,
In to-operation with Victoria College, in Victoria. This decision.
I believe, is a wise and a far-
sighted one, but it will be a difficult one to give effect to In
the next two or three years.
It will considerably increase our
problems here at the University,
as it will, in addition, increase
our student population.
Dentistry, Music and the Fine
Arts, Asian Studies, and the expansion of work at the Graduate
level, particularly in the Humanities and the Social Sciences,
are all on the doorstep, and must,
in the near future, became part
of the University of British Columbia.
These developments, together
with the certain and continuing
increase in student population,
will create many difficult problems for all of us— the University, the Government, and the
community. But if British Columbia and Canada are to continue
Norman MacKenzie', President, University of British Columbia
to grow and expand and develop, they must have an increasing
number of well-trained and educated young men and women
to supply the technical skills,
to fill professional posts, and to
provide the leadership that Is
necessary. The cost will be high,
but relative to highways, or to
the social services, it will be insignificant. Indeed I suspect that
we are, presently, paying more
fore liquor, for tobacco, and for
entertainment than we pay for
University Education.
There should be no argument,
among reasonable men and women at least, about the relative
and creative importance of these
various ways of spending money.
Our Provincial Government
has been and continues to bo,
generous. This past year, they
increased our annual grant by
$200,000. They have also promised us $10,000,000 for capital
construction over the next few-
years, and they are in the process of adding an additional
433 acres from the Endowment
Lands to our campus. For all of
this we are very grateful.
Our friends too, in business,
in industry, and throughout the
community, continue their interest in, and support of the University, so that U.B.C. was listed
in the "Financial Post" as having
received this year more support
from business and industry than
any other university in Canada.
These are evidences of the
kind of public service and generous behavior which are so essential, not only to the University, but, in my opinion, to the
whole of Canada, if our present
system, in which the individual
and the corporation has a maximum of freedom, is to survive
and to flourish. But fine and generous as all these have been,
they still do not provide us with
enough money to carry on as we
should, and provide the services
expected of us. The capital grant
of $10,000,000 will do no more
than replace some of the 307
huts still in use on and around
the campus. In place of a $200,-
000 increase in our annual grant
we need at least $600,000, not to
expand services, but to bring
our salaries up to the., minimum
levels in some other institutions,
and to provide the equipment
and facilities for our presently
increased enrolment.
It is for the reasons like these,
that I hope that the Provincial
and Federal Governments, will
realize the seriousness of these
matters and will take the necessary steps to meet the needs.
They will do so, if enough of our
friends throughout the Province,
feel that the Universities are
important in relation to other
services that governments are
being pressed to provide. By Your  Friendly  Neighbourhood Dealer

magnificent setting, the university is the site of many of
the city's finest homes which
each year open their doors to
several out-of-town students.
Of course, there are some students who are forced by the
housing shortage to live at
Fort or Acadia Camp, or even
outside the gates. But both the
student whose home is around
Vancouver and the student
whose home is not, will appreciate thc fine taste and daring
foresight of the authorities
whose policies gave our campus some of the most luxurious homes in the city.
For those who are not fortunate enough to live on campus, there are dozens of dear
grey-haired old ladie3 who run
boarding houses in the Alma,
Kerrisdale and Point Grey
districts, and who are eager
to accommodate you. You can
easily recognize them; they'll
ask for three months' rent in
advance before you enter the
door. Similarly, the enterprising merchants of the university area are alerted to
your appearance and are looking forward to a full pot again

Self-Help  Plan
Gives Employment
U.B.C. helps those who help themselves.
Recognising the needs of students who are unable to
depend on parental support the personnel service operates a
"self-help" program.
"The Univeristy of B.C.," said
President N. A. M. Mackenzie in
his annual report, "will continue
to open its doors to any person
in the province who can profit
by a university education."	
This self-help program provides part time employment on
campus for a number of students
who have good academic standing and are in need of financial
assistance to continue their education.
Jobs are taken in place of or
as a supplement to bursaries.
Positions are available in the
library, the bookstore, Buildings
and Grounds department, and
Food Services department.
Most jobs are limited to an
average of ten hours a week to
avoid interference with studies
but students must promise to
work regularly throughout the
session except where the shift
conflicts with an exam.
Wages vary in accordance with
the job but the minimum wage is
75 cents an hour.
Students wishing to apply for
work under the program can obtain applications at the personnel office—Hut M 1.

IS it prOgreSS when the annual take from the highest provincial
Sales Tax in Canada soars unchecked to $198.00 for every household
in B.C.!
IS H prOgrSSS when your highway dollars are squandered in a
politically expedient patchwork program, with amateur planning and
cost-plus, machine-rental patronage?
IS it prOgrOSS when the government claims to have reduced the
"direct debt" of the province, while actually that debt (including
''contingent liabilities"—for every cent of which you, the taxpayers,
ar* directly responsible) has been increased by $88,000,000; with an
additional $113,000,000 authorized to be borrowed?
IS it prOgrOSS when the government turns its back on farmers'
problems—undermines local municipal, school and hospital boards-
insults the intelligence of the voters in the calling and conduct of
this election?
a LIBERAL government will immediately...
reduce the Sales Tax by 20%, without any affect on hospital
and social service payments — built! more and better roads at
lower cost, by appointing an independent Highway Commission
and letting contracts by competitive tender only —take the
direct action necessary to restore the farm
economy — restore local autonomy to

— restore dignity and infegrify to the con-
duct of public affairs in British Columbia.

Hour So Essential?
UBC is unique among North American Universities for many reasons, but the
main one is its noon-hour lectures.
Every day students munch their lunches while being entertained by famous
lecturers, politicians, business men,  musicians, and, occasionally, professors.
Tuesday, September 18, 1956
The lectures are sponsored
mainly by the Special Events
Committee who in the past have
brought famous names such as
W. H. Atiden and the Modern
Jazz Quartet to campus. Political
and religious clubs also sponsor
a great many speakers, and
smaller clubs occasionally spon
sor lectures on topics relating to
their organization.
The lectures are usually orderly, but occasionally members of
the audience disagree with the
speaker and display their disagreement in methods not included in Robert's Rules of
Such was the case when Tim
Buck spoke on campus. Buck
came to UBC first In 1953. The
audience greeted him with, among other things, a dead cat. He
was not discouraged, however,
and returned last year.
Frosh will find the noon hour
lectures entertaining, educational, and a fine place to eat lunch.
All textbooks are now on sale in the FIELD HOUSE,
immediately south of Brock Hall.

To Get Free
The "new look" in Frosh
orientation will appear today.
An 84-page guidebook, designed to acquaint frosh with a
strange University, will be distributed by the Publications
Board in the Armoury today.
Freshmen will receive the guidebook free of charge.
Entitled "Tuum Est and All
That . . . ", the handbook contains valuable information on
all phases of University life.
Sections on University history,
Student Council, the various
buildings, where to eat, who to
see for what, are all included.
We're hoping the handbook
will make the first few weeks at
UBC a little less confusing," said
Handbook Editor Brad Crawford. "We had the freshman in
mind in every paragraph."
The Publications Board's latest venture is an attempt at improvement of the combined student directory and handbook
which has appeared in previous
years. Formerly, both guidebook information and a student
directory listing names, addresses and phone numbers of all
students appeared in the same
This year, the guidebook appears in separate form on registration day; the Directory will
appear this year in mid-October,
after the lengthy registration
process is completed.

Journalistically-inclined students are needed to fill staff
positions on the Publications
Board, Editor-in-Chief Sandy
Ross announced today.
Reporters, photographers,
lay-out men, and cartoonists
are in particular demand, Ross
said. Staffers are needed immediately for both the Ubyssey and the Totem year-book.
Ross emphasized that previous experience, although highly desirable, is not necessary.
"An interest in current events
and student affairs, a flair for
writing, and a fondness for
parties are the important qualities," he said.
Writing for the Publications
Board is not as time-consuming
a job as is generally imagined,
Ross said. "The essential thing
is to turn up regularly, even

•^rT —Social Credit will provide relief for the homeowners. Next year and in the years to follow,
residents of British Columbia who own their homes will
get a basic exemption on their real estate taxes much as
wage earners now get a basic exemption on their income
tax. Every person who owns his house will not have to
pay taxes on the first unit of«ssessment. The tax reduction
is estimated at $28 per home throughout thc Province
Municipalities that normally collect the taxes will not
suffer. They will be reimbursed by the Provincial Government. The $3,000 home will receive the same exemption
as the $30,000 home.
**{ Credit is undertaking a highway construction
programme that dwarfs the efforts of former
governments. Everywhere in B.C. new highways have
Been built or are under construction. Contractors are
now working on 400 miles of new main roads, and
hundreds of miles of secondary roads are being rebuilt
and improved by day labour. This year $68 million has
been allocated for highway construction.
^ RECREATION —Social Credit has created a
^•^ whole new concept in thc field of recreation, and
plans for further co-ordinating and extending
this programme are being studied. New park sites have
been established and existing sites have been developed
to provide picnic and camping places in nil populated
sections of British Columbia. New highways have
provided access to these sites as well as to favorite
hunting and fishing locations. Conservation and propagation of wild life is being developed by the Game
Branch. For those who prefer less vigorous recreation,
community programmes have been created and trained
regional counsellors appointed. Recreational subjects
cover everything from golf to millinery and from steam
engineering to soil management.
y HOSPITAL INSURANCE-Social Credit has
eliminated the arbitrary and unfair hospital
insurance premium plan, replacing it with a sales
tax plan that establishes hospital protection on the basis
of ability to pay. The individual in the low income
bracket does not pay as much as his wealthier neighbour.
And for the first time, industry is now making an important contribution to the cost of maintaining and
operating our hospitals.
^m Credit is now building six major bridges that are
badly needed and were promised for years by
other governments. Cost of these bridges, totalling
$37 million, will be shared by those who use them and
by the Highways Department. At present under construction are thc Marpole Bridge and the Second Narrows
Bridge in the Greater Vancouver area; the Agassiz-
Rosedale Bridge; the Kelowna-Wcstbank Bridge; and
the West Arm Bridge at Nelson.
**( the past four years has increased its financial
contributions, direct and indirect, to municipalities
of British Columbia by more than 40%. This aid in
1952 amounted to $28 million—in 1956 to $43 million.
The burden of education costs have been lifted from the
municipalities by increasing government contributions
from $8,100,000 in 1952-53 to $23,500,000 in 1956-57.
Municipalities are also protected from increasing school
costs in future years *y the introduction of a formula
that increases government payments as costs go up.
f SOCIAL WELFARE —Social Credit has estab-
*s^ lished new standards for Canada in its care of
the aged, the needy and the handicapped. No
other province approaches British Columbia in its
humanitarian treatment of those who need help. Old
age pensioners receive a cost of living bonus of $20 a
month. Social Assistance Allowances, increased twice
in the past four years, are now 25 percent higher than
they were in 1952. Disabled persons receive a $20 monthly
bonus in addition to the regular allowance. Last year
British Columbia spent $15.33 per capita on Social
Welfare compared to $9.12 for CC.F. governed
Saskatchewan and $5.55 in Manitoba where a Liberal
government is in power.
*M —Social Credit has revitalized the P.G.E. Trains
are now bringing freight and passengers in and
out of North Vancouver and by the end of 1957 the
Peace River towns of Fort St. John and Dawson Creek
will have direct connection with thc coast. The line has
been completely rebuilt, new rolling stock has been
purchased, and finally it is showing a regular and steadily
increasing operating profit.

Gnup Holds Key To Big

Frank T. Gnup, not pronounced "Gunoop" or "Gun-
up" but Nup. Why, is a mystery to everybody, even Frank
You ask ''Who is this Gnup when he's home?"
Well, when Frank is home, he is out on the field
teaching a bunch of guys how to play football and get away
with winning. *—

two giving  it  up as an  impos-

training for these young men"
Mr. Roberts declared.
"Most of them have made real
sacrifices financially to stay with
their training. All of them took
a week off before the Olympic
trials in order to be at their
best. The results at Port Dalhousie   showed   the   benefit   of
the same way but with an even
bigger heart, less hope and a will
to work hard. In his first
session with the Birds last year,

Mr. Frank T. Gnup is the only
recent football coach that has
set a goal to get a winning team
from U.B.C. and worked hard
toward this goal. He will also
be the only coach to get credit
in a league of seven teams. Mind ] for this hard work. Gnup is out
there to prove that it is possible
for U.B.C. to win football games.
you, it was nothing to go around
blowing   about   but   it   was   an
that week. We should have done '. achievement over the past few
this sooner.
Inheriting unsuccessful teams and turning them into'
winning elevens is not a strange job to U.B.C. football coach
Frank T. Gnup. Last year he inherited the most unsuccessful
college team in Canada and, as a result he won only one
game; good enough for a sixth place finish in the seven
team Evergreen Conference League.
However, this year indications point towards a third or
fourth place standing. The pessimistic (95% of the most reasonable people) say, "impossible. U.B.C. winning a payoff spot in
the Evergreen Conference is like the L.P.P.'s winning the 1956
B.C. election."
There are few indications that the L.P.P.'s will make
a runaway with the election but there are many pointing towards an exceptional '56 campaign for the Birds.
Experience, depth, attitude, more training hours, and
new plays are certain to produce more touchdowns and fewer
The experience comes from the returning veterans and
Vne new material. Several of the prospects were former Jayvees
or Junior Big Four players.
With more than fifty out to practice, Gnup will have a full
team; the second stringers capable of taking over for injured
players without weakening the team. Thus he has lots of depth. *■
The attitude was Gnups biggest problem. To solve this
setback, he made the competition for a position harder by
getting more players out to practices. In former seasons, there
was none of this fighting for a spot on the squad so the players
developed a nonchalant attitude. Evidence of a change was shown
the other day when one of the veteran players injured himself
during a practice session. He asked the coach if he could stay
on the field because he didn't want to take a chance and lose
his position to another player. "This sort of attitude is going to
win us some games," said the coach.
Spring training appeared on the sport scene for the first
time this season and it was a big success. This together with a *|
longer pre-season practice session put us ahead two weeks over last
year. Yuh know," said Gnup, "those guys have learned to split
ends and they've doing a lot more flanking this year. And yuh
know, the quarterbacks will be calling the plays this year too.
To have a running game, you have got to have passing and to
have a passing team you've got to have running. I think we'll do
all right this year."
The 1956 edition of the Birds will be officially unveiled
on September 22 when they tackle the visting Western Ontario
Mustangs in the annual Paraplegic Bowl football game at U.B.C.
Birds will be looking for their first win in this annual
charity affair. Last year, they played to a scoreless draw against
the McGill Redmen after losing a close 8-5 decision two years
However, it is a different team coming to town this
week and they bring with them one of the finest records of any
Canadian college. Western coach John Metras lost several players
this season but he still has twenty-one returning veterans. His
new prospects also came to the club with a relative amount of
experience. His front line averages about 200 pounds compared to
the Birds 190-195 pounds. Metras is also reported to have a speedy
backfield with a well trained quarterback who can work the
split T offense with intricate precision.
Tickets for the Western game are on sale at Hicks Ticket
Bureau and in the War Memorial Gymnasium. Student prices are
one dollar or free on presentation of an A card.
Ontario   Has
Good Record
University of Western Ontario Mustangs with their home in
London, Ontario, will travel over
three thousand miles to provide
the opposition for U.B.C. in the
fourth    annual    Churchill    Cup
football game.  This is the first
year that Western will play in
the Paraplegic Bowl contest.
In past years, McGill University of Montreal has provided the
competition for U.B.C. but after
last years 0-0 draw the humiliation of being held to a tie game
by U.B.C. was too much so they
gave the annual appearance up.
Last season, the Mustangs had
a record of no win*, 1 draw and
five defeats. Their tie game was
also against. McGill. This was the
first time that Western had lost
the  Yates  Cup,  emblematic   of
supremacy in the Intercollegiate
loop, two years in a row. Out of
the  last  eleven  years,  the  cup
has rested  in the Mustangs den j Four,   bringing  the   team   from
the basement to first place in
his first year. In 1950, he joined
the Toronto Argos as a defensive
Willi all his experience, Gnup
has embarked on a full scale
programme designed to educate
years. The calibre of football
Frank saw last season was
enough to drive anybody away:
but not Mr. Gnup.
Following the final game last
year in which U.B.C. lost 28-6,
Frank started a drive to get football players. By spring training time, he had 110 names. With
between 50 and 70 out to practices now, it looks like we will
have a winning squad. Gnup
started training early this year
and holds practices twice a day."
He is driving the boys hard, and
teaching them what its like to
play real football.
Frank's experience in rough
and tough football dates back
to his high school days in Ali-
quippa, Pennsylvania where he
was the star quarterback. In
1941 he graduated from Manhat-
ten College with a Bachelor of
Science in Physical Education
and All-Metropolitan honours as
a football player. After four
years in tho army, Gnup secured
a job as playing coach of the
Hamilton   Wildcats  of   the   Big
seven times.
Metras revealed that he will
be using 1 ho split T formation
with the double fullback system.
To defence this formation, the
Birds will need a solid line and
a pair of speedy defensive ends.
