Council Approves NFCUS Fee
by Bob Bone
Agriculture minister W. K.
Kiernan couldn't dodge the
issue of UBC's building program when he addressed the
student Social Credit club
Monday noon.
Although Mi. Kiernan's topic
of discussion wis titled "Orderly
Marketing in BC,", 90% of the
questions dealt with the Social
Credit government attitude to-
wafdi UBC's stalled building
'If the pushing of a few keys
on an adding machine can put
away $38,000,000 for public
debt, couldn't $10,000,000 be
put away for us?" was the opinion of one of the students in the
Mr. Kiernan defended government action by saying that there
were "other questions more
pressing to BC's economic development."
In answer to McGoun cup debater John Coates' pressing questions on the building plan, the
provincial minister stated, "I am
agricultural minister, not minister of education."
John Redekop, Social Credit
club president, came to Kiernan's aid by saying that questions on .this problem would be
answered by Premier Bennett
when he comes to the campus in
a few weeks.
Oi| the lUbJect. of Orderly
Marketing, kiernan said that
"marketing boards do considerable towards building a stable
economy, along with industry."
The concept of orderly marketing was evolved during the
depression of the thirties to at-

Ministers Son Does His
Part To Crush  Kinseyism'
Promiscuity and Kinsey were crushed by University off
Manitoba McGoun cup debaters Friday when UBC's affirmative team lost £M before a capacity audience.
UBC and University of Alberta tied for second, each having
♦won a debate, and University of
Saskatchewan came last.
Poll Finds
Disciplinary action should be
handled by a group independent of the Undergraduates Society's committee is the opinion
of the majority of students interviewed in a Ubyssey poll
In reply to the question, "Are
you in favpr of the formation
of separate investigating and judicial committees to deal with
infractions of the AMS constitution, as opposed to the present
disciplinary system?" 33 out of
53 students replied in the affirmative.
The poll is the result of widespread agitation to have UBC's
"criminal code" revamped.
"The matter should definitely
be kept in student hands," said
Morris  Brown,  first year Arts.
"Let the RCMP take care of
Applied Science students," was
the comment of another student,
who refused to give his name.
Other students shied away
from the idea of an investigating committee, and some voiced
the opinion that any judicial
committee would become the I
playground of the Law students, j
Overwhelming opposition was
voiced to the idea of a boost of
the present $5 maximum fine
provided for those found guilty
of infractions of the AMS constitution. Forty-six students turned thumbs down on this proposal, with seven favoring thc
"I don't think any punishment
should be financial," said Ron
Robinson, fourth year 'Commerce.
The general feeling on this
subject was that "money means
too little to some students, and
too much to most."
Teacher Says
Teacher Not
Teaching All
'No teacher knows all the answers," Mr. MacKenzie, principal of Gladstone Senior High
School told the teacher training
class at the panel discussion on
"Problems Facing a Beginning
Teacher," January 15.
"The more we seek others'
opinions and techniques the
more the profession grows," he
The necessity of learning from
others was stressed by the six
teachers on the panel in their
answers to a series of questions
posed by the teacher training
Miss Boyle of King Edward
High School teaching staff felt
that the prime requisite for a
a teacher was sense of humor.
She added that a teacher should
not be dowdy or careless in

To Blow Blues

One of Manitoba's debaters
who apoke here, Charles Huband,
is the son oi the Winnipeg minister of Grace United Church,
where the Manitoba division of
the annual debates were forbidden by church officials.
Topic was the same at all universities: "That the Kinsey Reports are a benefit to society."
Dr. F. W. B. Smith, Vancouver
veterinary  scientist and  public j
speaking  expert,   described  the \
debate as one of the best he had'
ever heard at UBC. j
Gerald Jewers, negative Manitoba speaker, described the Kin- j
sey  report  as  "dangerous  and)
misleading,"   and   consisting   of
"limitation after limitation."
All the statistics set down by
Dr. Kinsey, he said, have no
meaning to the layman, and do
him mor harm than good.
His main criticism was that
Kinsey had made only an interim report rather than a complete
survey of the entire United
States, as was his intention.
Therefore, the reports concern
only one eighth of the people
intended to be covered and
could not possibly be applied to
society as a whole, said the debater.
This speaker decried the treatment given to Kinsey's reports
by newspapers and magazines,
resulting in a "lurid sensationalism."
John Coates, UBC speaker,
said he found the shock and dismay which greeted the debate
title difficult to understand. The
topic was selected, he said, be-

New Committee Formed
To  Study   Discipline
Rumored threat of UBC withdrawal from the National
Federation of Canadian University Students was temporarily
banished Monday night when student council voted to pay the
20 cent per student NFCUS fee for this year.
At the meeting, council also formed a committee to study
and revise the disciplinary code proposed by the Undergraduate
Societies Committee. $	
Jobs Offered;
450 Apply;
Job Cancelled
A Saturday job that was to
pay UBC student? $3,1.00 a week
was announced "cancelled" by
the Placement service, Friday,
as students queued for interviews.
Placement service announced
earlier in the week that a Saturday job would be available
for 400 students at $8 a day,
each Saturday until the end of
the term.
Students turned away were
not told the reason for the cancellation, but Personnel Director John McLean announced
Monday that the unnamed firm

The threat of withdrawal from
NFCUS came when UBC delegates Ivan Feltham and Vaughan.

drawl form NFCUS rather thin
pay the proposed 30 cent raise
in Federation fees.
The ftO cent fee, supported
by University of Toronto delegates  was   approved   at   the
NFCUS conference in spite of
threats   of   withdrawal   from
UBC  and other delegates.
Students at the University of
Toronto, in a recent referendum,
voted against  the fee increase,
reversing the stand of their representatives   and   leaving   the
NFCUS   fee   increase   an   open
question   until   the   conference
next October.
Effect of the council motion
here is that UBC will remain
in NFCUS this year without
a change in fees, with the entire NFCUS question left to a
later date.

The committee set up by coun-
code presented by UBC president Jim McNish will consist
of the AMS president, the USC
chairman, the Public Relations
Officer, one other member from
Student Council and one member from UBC.
The propsed code, approved
"in principle" by the meeting
Monday  noon,  calls   for  the
USC to carry out the three
tasks of investigating, judging

Improve Self Help
University of Toronto officials are eyeing enviously
UBC's self-help plan, one of the best in Canada. But there
are still many kinks to be ironed out before UBC does any
complacent back-patting.
For 10 hours work per week some 140 students who probably could not otherwise atterld university are earning from
$25i to $30 a month clerking in the book store, sweeping class
room floors or stacking books in the library. But no jobs are
available for at least 150 more who need the assistance of such
a program.
The success and further expansion of the self-help plan
depend on the quality of work done by students now receiving
aid and more efficient organization and control by the departments hiring students under this plan. The book store is one
department which needs investigation and modification if self-
help is to be a success. Bookstore Service is much worse than
It could be, even in the present overcrowded shack.
Perhaps the nine-hour week worked by student help is not
long enough for clerks to become fully acquainted with the
system of handling books and supplies. Perhaps some students
should not be placed in a job where they are selling to other
students because of the danger of treating customers in a
cavalier fashion with no attempt made to give fast courteous
service. Or it may be that a poor choice has been made in
placing students in particular jobs.
In any case something must be done to improve self- help
plan in bookstore operations. Some alternative which does not
rate assistance to nine students so much higher than efficient
service to 5500 students should be attempted. It's time to get
rid of the wrinkles in the otherwise smooth-working self-help
When you come to think of it we can't see why Mr. Feltham banned card-playing in the cat, it's probably safer than
Are Frats Un-Canadian
Are fraternities un-Canadian? That is the burning
question and one which h of vital interest to every student
on the campus.
We might ask; why are fraternity activities conducted behind closed doors? Why the atmosphere of stealth and secrecy? Have these people something to hide? Is there something of which they are mortally ashamed?
' A mind infected with the virus of Bolshevism might say
these organizations "smell of class distinction." But his criticism is superficial in the extreme. Some authorities maintain
that all the cloak-and-dagegr paraphernalia is to make th?
members feel mysterious and important. This same element,
for example, is often found in the play of children or in the
rituals of some of the more primitive savages.
But is this all? Are there deeper, more significant reasons
for( .the secrecy? The frat rushing pamphlet (Fraternity
Rushing at UBC) lays much emphasis on "fellowship." Just
what does this mean? Could it be that the frats are attracting
more than their share of individuals with homosexual proclivities?
In a word, what goes on behind the barred doors? To
answer these questions we propose a thorough investigation
by an impartial fact-finding committee. The committee could,
for example, conduct an inquiry into the motives for joining
frats. Certain malicious elements present at this institution
have intimated that some people join frats, not out of altruistic tendencies but from a desire for possible future pecuniary
gain and the like.
An investigation such as the one proposed would do much
to clear the air. In other words, wo could make sure that the
keen wind of democracy blows without restraint on every
corner of the campus. The frats must be given a chance to
vindicate their honour.
The investigation, would, of course, be caried on under
wraps. This would prevent it from disturbing the placidness
of the campus in general. Furthermore, it would stifle any
rumour-mongering or indiscritniate charges which might arise
as a result of the inquiry being undertaken.
After the Student's tribuanl or vigilantes committee had
studied the case, there would of course, be only two alternatives. Either the frats would be guilty or they would not be
guilty. If the former were true, then their exodus from the
campus would have to be only a question of time.
If however, the honour of the frats were vindicated; if
it can be proved that they add luster to the name of the university or I hat they assist in human well-being and so forth,
then they should no longer remain as separate bodies but
come under the protect ing wing of the AMS.

Something clanged and eight little men with triphammers beat on the back of my eyeballs. It was the alarm.
I lay there, too scared to open my eyes for fear they would fall
out on the floor. Next time I'll1 drink good, old-fashioned
liquor at Mardi Gras.
I got up, took a quick smash of ethyl alcohol to clear my
throat, lit a Lucky and fell down thc stairs. The old lady had
done the bacon too crisp so I smashed her over the head with a
milk bottle. Those new square bottles made a nice dent I thought
as I watched her lie moaning under the table. She wouldn't do
the bacon so crisp next time.
I grabbed my rod from behind the cookie jar, lit up a
Lucky and walked out the back door, lamming a final jam pail
at the old lady as I did so. A small dog, resembling my Psych
lecturer, was sniffing at the garbage pail. I lashed out at him
with my foot. I felt my loafer dig into something soft and he
went flying over the fence to land in a rose bush. I had to wipe
my feet off on the snow. He wouldn't sniff our garbage next
Mike Hammer Meets Milton
The driver of the car chain was late so I smashed in the
ftpnt window with my rod and drove glass splinters into his
face. He wouldn't be late next time.
English-200 this morning. I slouched on the steps of the hut
smoking a Lucky and watched the broads go into the classroom.
One little blonde built like a Coca-Cola bottle didn't look at me
so I plugged her. I stuffed the body under the stairs as the
prof came along.
He was wearing a tweed jacket, blue denims, a plttk shirt,
plaid tie, hip rubber boots, a boy scout beanie and around his
leg he wore a purple garter. He wasn't smoking a Lucky. I spat
blood-flecked saliva on his feet as he went by and I could see
the shivers of fear run from his faded blues to his beanie.
He'll smoke a Lucky next time.
He started in on some square called Milton so I lit up a
Lucky, walked up to the front, broke his leg with his own
College Survey, then shot him through one eye to see how the
other one looked. It looked scared.
I lit a Lucky and wandered out. A broad in a Buick convert
went by and didn't wave. I tattooed a dirty word in the left
door with my rod before she could pass. She'd wave next time. "
An applied science slob stepped out from behind a cigarette
butt. I cut him off at the knees and watched him hobble on
the stumps back to the applied science building. He'd take arts
next time.
Registrar On the Run
Drove a few shots through the administration building
window and laughed as I watched the stenos scatter. They
wouldn't give me sups the next time.
Lit up a Lucky. Wandered down to the caf. Couldn't find a
seat so shot 17 sorority girls one by one as they sat at their
table, knee-deep in butts and wilted dance programs. They
screamed their allegiance to Alpha Gumma Gumma as they
choked on their own blood. Had the whole table myself. Lit
a Lucky and flicked the match into the blonde hair of a broad
three tables away. I liked the crisp smell of her burning flesh,
reminded me of 'today's special.' Nothing to do so I shot up
the assembly line belt. A waitress broke into tears. I shot out
both her eyes.   She wouldn't cry next time.
A broad who I had met in the steam bath last week sidled
up. She not only came at me in sections, the sections had
partitions. She was wearing off-the-shoulder paddle shoes. She
felt nice and soft against me. I clobbered her with a bun and
she Ftiffened out.  She wouldn't be soft next time.
Smoke Chesterfields
Went down to Brock hall. Caught a guy cheating at poker,
smashed his coffee cup on the table and cut off both his arms
about ;j'.i" below his elbows. He wouldn't cheat next time. At
least if he did. he'd do'it with his feet.
Lit a  Lucky and tossed it in the mail box as I went into
the AMS office. Saw Feltham and Goldsmith. Cut off Feltham's
head just above his ankles and cut off Goldsmith's feet just above     |
his ears.   They wouldn't raise my fees next time.        %
Went outside and saw a stack of Ubysseys. Burnt them all     [

Charlie Under Fire
Dear Sir,
I am most, anxious to meet
one of your reporters, Mr.
Charlie Watt. I have a battery
of tests for which he might
prove a most interesting subject.
His recent articles on student
tours and "Love and Marriage" seem to indicate a pervasive attitude or preoccupation with libido and objects
?nd activities related thereto:
nylon panties, "Mom and Dad."
osculation, etc.
Preponderance of the terms
"mother" and "Mom" in his
brief accounts of the accumulated know-how of a mature
and lively cleric, plus the
whole tone of these accounts,
in Which said cleric io transformed into an authoritarian
mother-figure, leads me to suspect a mother-fixation in the
tortuous labryinths of his unconscious.
One hopes, for the sake of
the security of femalee on this
campus, that the same reported
did not write the reecnt smirking parodies on Dr. Kinsey's
M. Turpin
Graduate Psychology.
With 'reporter' Charlie
Watt' sexcursus on Dr. A. M.
Trenrell's Thursday talk on
"Love and Marriage," Ubssey
reporting has hit a new low.
The distortion arising from the
(prejudices of the writer stands
in the very worst tradition of
tabloid sensationalism. It seems
that Watt did not like Dr.
Trendell's opinions about kiss-
in (a comment made in a few
sentences of a fourty-minute
address): Watt reacted; hence
three-quarters of his story is
an awkward attempt to depict
this small incident with sardonic scorn. It is depressing that
such reporting is tolerated, by
a university newspaper especially. Of mature and honest
journalism, which put aside
its private phobias and records
what actually takes place, Watt
appears to know nothing. And
the  Ubyssey prints his  stuff!
And with a BY-LINE!
Further evidence of Watt's
calibre may be seen in his insertion, "SCM Plans Love
Talks," in which he states that
"segregated audiences" "will
hear the third lecture,, on the
physical aspects of marriage.
It seems lhal Wall's ears were
clouded by his Inner tensions;
otherwise he would have heard
Dr. Trendell suggest this plan,
but leave the decision pro or
con to the S. C. M. Thursday
afternoon our group decided
unanimously that this talk
should be given to a mixed audience; Dr. Trendell has concurred.
It is interesting, too, that
this notice deals entirely with
the third lecture, on the physical relationship, which is two
weeks away. One might have
expected next Thursday's lecture (on the marriage cere-
mony^ to be mentioned. It
isn't. Watch him, girlsl
Watt's subjective colorations
are not confined to the report
of this one event. In the same
Friday issue, his report on the
travel folder of the Overseas
Education League focusses on
one sentence on the desirability
of nylon underwear . . . which
Watt construes as "nylon panties" ("bumming around"). His
attention seems obsessively rl-
vetted upon one particular
area. Interest in sex it natural
in a young man, yes Indeed,
but on can have too much of
a good thing.
Watt's style of Deporting, I
feel, could well bring him an
offer from the Chicago Tribune, depending on the extent
of Colonel McCormick's concern for the safety of his female employees. But please.
Ubyssey, turn off these high-
powered Watt's!        '

"UBC graduates are going to
play a tremendous part in the development of British Columbia,"
B.C. Finance Minister Einar
Ounderson said rather cautiously in an exclusive interview with
The Ubyssey Friday.
He declined to .comment on
the possibility of Immediate aid
to the university building program, but indicated the government is definitely aware of an
"increasing demand for graduates "
There is a limit to provincial
expenditure in the field of education, he emphasized, after referring to huge industrial developments expected in northern
"Can UBC supply trained men
fast enough to keep pace with
rtpld development and expansion in the province?" he asked.
"I imagine classrooms will
have to expand first, to take care
of increased enrollment, ... but
it ia up to UBC planners to decide what new buildings are
needed on the campus," said
Mr Ounderson described BC's
situation and potential. In area
388,000 square miles, lt is larger
than the states of Washington,
Oregon, California, and New
York combined, he said.
In the northern half of B.C.
the population is 28,000. Yet
Sweden with the same area and
fewer natural resources, supports a population of 7 million.
Mr. Gunderson emphasized
that there will be a greater and
greater need for university
trained men in B.C.'s future
His remarks followed a guest

Spectators Kept In Frenzy
As Thunderbirds Gain Split
Slip By Eastern 49-48
Whitworth Wim 65-52
UBC Thunderbirds split their first home series over the
weekend as they squeaked by Eastern Washington 49-48
Friday night and lost to powerful Whitworth 65-52 Saturday
Friday night's victory over
Eastern, last year's champions,
was the Birds first Conference
win of the season and leaves
them with a record of one win
and three losses.
The game can be summed up
in two words — Geoff Craig.
The Bird's lanky center played
the best game of his life as he
poured in 20 points to lead his
mates to victory.
The game was decided on the
foul line as Craig and Bob Bone
sank four foul shots to give the
Birds a 49-46 lead with a little
more than a minute remaining
in the game.
With just one minute left to
play, Eastern's Willard McGil-
llvray, who played an outstand
ing game, drove into the key
for a layup to make the score
49-48 and leave 400 fans on the
edge of their seats. Eastern
got possession of the ball with
45 seconds left to go and stalled
until the last possible second before attempting the winning basket. The shot fell short and the
game ended with Bob Bone hugging the ball as if it was an atomic bomb.
Savages Off To Fast Start
In the opening minutes of the
game it looked as if the highly
touted Savages were going to
have things their own way as
they opened a 6-0 lead. But
then Craig took over and by the
end of the first quarter the Birds
held an 18-10 lead.
In the second quarter the
game developed into a personal
battle between Craig and Eastern's McGillivray. At the halfway mark they both had scored
14 points but John McLeod and
Brian Upson had both been busy
for the Birds and they held a
30-23 lead.
Edwards Starry For Eastern
The Birds suffered their usual
third quarter slump as Easterns
ALL-Conference star Dick Edwards found the range and at
the end of the quarter the game
was knotted at 40-40.
The lead see-sawed in the last
quarter as both teams played It
close to the vest. When the
game ended with the Birds a
one point winner all bedlam
broke loose as the handful of
loyal supporters shouted themselves hoarse.
Craig was high man for the
evening with his 26 points. John
McLeod and Brian Upson each
potted nine points. For Eastern,
Willard McGillivray and Dick
Edwards were high men with 17
and 14 points respectively.
On Saturday night the Birds
pulled a Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde
as they lost to the powerful
Whitworth Pirates 63-32.
Birds Run Out of Gas
In  the  first   half,   the  Birds;
five 'iron-men' who played the
dntire   game   on   Friday  night j
appeared to have run out of gas
as   the   timber-topping   Pirates
ran up a 42-18 lead.
The Bird team that came out
for the second half bore no resemblance to the Bird team that
played the first half. After being
outscored 24 points in the first
half the Birds outscored Whitworth by 11 points in the last
Led by John McLeod, who
scored 17 points the Birds had
both the Pirates and the 750
fans wondering if coach* Jack
Pomfret   had   not   inserted   a
bunch of ringers into the game.
However, the Pirates, led by
6' 10" Phil Jordan who amassed
26 points and deadeye Roy Beach
who scored 16 points, had built
up too large a lead for the Birds
to overcome and the game ended
with the Birds on the short end
of a 65-52 score.
Newcomer Stu Madill, although he played for a few
minutes showed a lot of hustle
and helped spark the Birds last
half drive.
The Varsity band added a lot
of extra enjoyment to both
games and it would be nice if
they could be present at all the
Birds home games.

more could be expected from

that Bob Pickel. Eiler's fancy

Sports Editor—STAN BECK
The Compost Heap
Dear Mr. Allan, Sports Editor, The Gateway, University of Alta.
Just thought I would drop you a line, Harvie old boy, since I
saw your column in a recent edition of the Gateway. The thing
that interested me was the following portion of your column:
"From this stage of the game it appears that the big green
and gold basketball machine is roling merrily along. It is rolling
too well, perhaps. Certainly there doesn't seem to be a team in
the Alberta senior league who can come close to giving the
Golden Bear3 a contest. The same will likely hold in the intercollegiate league. Of course, it is perhaps a little premature to
condemn the other university squads but from what we've read
their lineups in their university papers, the Albertans have
nothing to worry about. This is especially frue of the Manitoba
Bisons and the Saskatchewan Huskies. UBC might be a bit different. They might put up a fight before they go down for the
count of ten."
A Bit of o Fight!
The thing that interested me, Harvie, was your statement
that "... (UBC) might up a fight before they go down for the
count of ten." Now I will agree with your theory there doesn't
seem to be any so-called team in Alberta that can touch Maury
Van Vliet's Golden Dears. But let's face it, Harvie, you haven't
got any other teams in Alberta.
I notice in the same issue of your paper that your team
bounced Magrath Rockets 92-61 and Cardston Leafs 103-46 on
successive nights. Now Magrath and Cardston are nice little
hamlets and they no doubt produce some fair *ball-players but to
match them with a university team is ridiculous.
If our beloved Bird ever played some of the scrub teams ln
the Senior A league here in Vancouver the score-boards would
have ulcers too. And we play on basketball courts out here, Harvie,
not badminton courts. The feeling among Vancouver teams who
have played in the infamous Magrath match-box is that the Port
Moody Intermediate Girl Guide Flyers could hit the century mark
on that floor.
Bears Hove Trouble With Leafs
Alberta boys here at UBC tell of playing in that gym and
seeing the guard who takes the throw-in off the end turn around
and sink a basket at the other end without moving a step. So
please, Harvie, don't confuse university ball teams and full-size
courts with local senior clubs and checker-board sized courts.
Coming from Saskabush myself, I know that it has never
been noted for exporting much beside gophers and I also see that
Manitoba is getting beat by local senior clubs so I will leave th«m
with memories of Carl Ridd and not much else.
But to get back to your statement that Birds MIGHT put up a
bit of a fight. First of all, we'll concede that your Golden Bears
are a good club. They have two outstanding players in Ed Lucht
and Don Macintosh and they have a little fireball in Don Newton.
But honestly, Harvie, aside from that I can't see that they are much.
Play in Band-Box Gyms
We happened to see them out here last Spring when they
had to go five games, the last two in overtime, before beating
Vancouver Clover Leaf's. They were terrific in coming from
behind and playing under pressure in that series but Clover Leafs
were one of the weakest teams to represent B.C. in a national
playdown in some years. There were many people who thought
that Leafs were only the second best team in the Vancouver senior
loop. And Thunderbirds whopped them three times during the
season. It was common knowledge that the best team in the pro
vince wasn't represented in that Western final but that is the
penalty UBC apparently has to pay for playing in an American
conference and seeking out the only teams around here which
can give Birds some competition.
I thought last spring that Birds could have beaten Golden
Bears and I still think so. Tell you what I'll do, Harvie, in the
usual benevolent B.C. manner. We have a beautifully engraved
Saskatchewan Liquor Control Board sign which somehow landed
in our offices after a recent safari to Saskatoon. If your Bears
whip our Birds when they meet here in the spring, the sign is
yours. I'll be waiting for a similar stake supplied by your side
(an autographed oil well would do).
