Canadian newspapers.
Jack Scott is well known in
Vancouver as the writer of a
daily column in the Vancouver
Sun. He has won numerous
awards for journalism during
his career, and a book containing highlights from his column
recently appeared on Vancouver
book shelves.
He has always been sympathetic towards student journal^
ism and a friend of those students working on the  Sun.
In his new capacity, Mr. Scott
will advise and aid members of
the student press with their
problems.
The conference which elected
him to the post met for three
days in the court house at Quebec City.
Delegates from the 25 university newspapers across Canada
which compose the Canadian
University Press discussed problems and co-ordinated policies in
this 22nd annual meeting.
They drew up a Charter and
a Code of Ethics for student
Press across the country, and
established a permanent national
office in Ottawa.
President Doug Parkinson
was re-elected to his post, for the
first time on a full time basis.
The national establishment

Board Interested in
AMS Council Brief
By FRED FLETCHER
Members of the Board of Governors have expressed interest in working more closely with the AMS council regarding
university financing. * •
Hon. Howard Green
Green To
Speak at
University
The Honorable Howard C.
Green, Q.C., M.P., Secretary of
State for External Affairs will
speak on "Canada's Role in Foreign Affairs" noon Thursday in
Auditorium.
Green has just returned from
a NATO meeting which discussed the possibility and feasa-
bility of integration of NATO
armed forces.
Mr. Green was first elected
o the House of Commons for
Vancouver-South in the general
election of 1935.
He became Minister of Public
Works in the Diefenbaker government formed in 1957. In
June, 1959, he was given the
portfolio of Secretary of State
for External Affairs.
On formation of the cabinet,
Mr. Green became senior minister and acts as Prime Minister
in the absence of Mr. Diefenbaker.
Born at Kaslo, B.C., Mr. Green
is a graduate of the University
of Toronto He was an honors
law student at Osgoode Hall-
was called to the bar in B.C.,
and has practiced law in Vancouver since 1920.
This, according to President
Peter Meekison, was the most
immediate result of the brief
that he presented to the board
on behalf of the AMS on December 10 of last year.
The final recommendation of
the seven page brief called for a
closer liaison between the two
groups.
In general, the brief dealt with
"the ever-present problem of insufficient financial aid for the
University" and reaffirm(ed)"
the position taken last year in
the brief presented by the then
president of the AMS, Chuck
Connaghan.
Meekison felt that the Board
of Governors was impressed
with the principles underlying
most of the recommendations.
He said that the student representatives were greatly encouraged by the "tremendous
reception" given their suggestions toy the board.
The major points made in the
brief are as follows:
It charges the fee increase
With having "brought about' a
detrimental change in the relationship existing between the
proportion of revenue coming
from various sources as well as
magnifying the financial problems of the students"
Recommendations for improving and retaining the quality of
the University:
1. A good student-faculty ratio.
2. The need for adequate
salaries for faculty to attract
competent persons.
3. Good library facilities.
4. Good research facilities.
All   this   requires    adequate
finances. To this end the brief
put forward several definite suggestions    which   were    explicit

been  general:

—A public relations program to
bring matters to the attention of
the people.
—Investigation of the possibility
of "a percentage of the British
Columbia Corporaton Taxes
(beng) directed toward the support of higher education in this
province." (It was ;stated that
there is a precedent for this', in
a recent Quebec action).
—Greater independence from
governmental influence^., (In
this connection "investigation
into :the establishment of a
Federal Advisory Board" was
recomended.)
—Approach Commerce and Industry as to, the establishment of
an ''Endowment Fund" for the
University (The success of the
Development Fund was cited as
well as the fact that these groups
contribute little to the operating
cost of the University at present)

Guest Editorial
The purpose of this editorial is to acquaint you with A.M.S.
policy and activities for the balance of the university year.
A new conference will be conducted in February called "The
Student Executive Conference." Its purpose is similar to the
Leadership Conference but an executive training programme
is also included. It is hoped that each Club and Undergraduate
Society will send as many delegates as possible to make this
conference a success.
, The Undergraduates Societies Committee will be sponsoring
for the first time an inter-faculty debate and an inter-faculty
song festival. These are newly scheduled contests. Others are
being considered.
As this term falls in the latter half of World Refugee Year,
N.F.C.U.S. and W.U.S. will be sponsoring World Refugee Week
to familiarize the students with problems of peoples in other
countries. It is also hoped that some funds will.be raised to help
one or two Algerian University students to continue their education.
"In December, the Students Council presented a brief to the
Board of Governors re-affirming their position on University
financing. One of the recommendations was that "the University conduct a public relations program to acquaint the people
of the province with the state of higher education in British
Columbia." Another suggestion was that the Board and the
A.M.S. work more closely together in an attempt to put the
University on a more sound financial basis; Which we hope will
prevent any major fee increases in the near future.
The Public Relations program could easily be called an Information Program designed to show the public the purpose and
role of the University in the community with the support of all
the students. To do this effectively, every student must be willing to discuss the University at every given opportunity. There
are many items of general interest to the public, for example,
the Library, the research that is being carried on, the building
program and the student activities, to name a few. It should not
be too difficult to discuss the inadequate student teacher ratio,
the crowded class-rooms, or the lack of sufficient study facilities
with any interested group. The student's council is keeping in
touch with every M.L.A. regarding the university and receiving
some encouraging replies.
The local N.F.C.U.S. Committee is working on two briefs:
i) increased scholarship aid from the Federal Government for
University students; and ii) greater income tax exemption for
University students. It is hoped that these briefs will be presented to the N.F.C.U.S. executive some time during the summer.
The Brock Planning and Development Committee is making
rapid progress in the finalization of their report. To be able to
start construction of a new Student Union building in the very
near future, there are many problems to be overcome. The
major problem of course, is financing and it is believed that this
years Spring General Meeting will be deciding what form this
financing will take.
The Commission studying the structure of student government at U.B.C. will be having hearings for the first two months
of this term. A reorganization of Student Government has been
discussed at great length over the past few years. As the Campus grows larger it will eventually become necessary for a
major change in Government. It must come within the next
two or three pears, as student enrollment is increasing at approximately 1,000 per year. The purpose of the Commission
is to hear the points of view of any student or student organization having any recommendations for the alteration or the
maintenance of the existing system. There is no doubt that it
has worked well and will continue to function effectively over
the next few years.
The Students Council elections will begin the first week of
February. Last year there were four acclamations. It is now
time to think of possible candidates for all elected positions. For
every slate will appear campaign statements in the Ubyssey and
speeches in the Auditorium. This is your only opportunity to
see and hear the prospective candidates for council. So make
every effort to be there.
I hope this brief outline will give you some indication of the
coming term's activities. If you would like further information
on any of these events, or have any suggestions to offer, please
don't hesitate to contact any student councillor.

Education in Malaya
by ERNEST WONG
(Ernest Wong is a WUSC exchange student from the University of Malaya. His article
is entitled, "Education in
Malaya.")
Malaya, the approximate size
of Great Britian, has only two
universities—the University of
Malaya and the Nanyang University. A brief sketch of their
historical development will
perhaps serve to throw some
light on the nature of university education there.
The Nanyang University, the
younger of the two institutions
is literally in its infancy. It became a University by statute
only five months ago and existed before that (since 1955) with
neither the finaVicial support
of the government nor their
recognition of the University's
right to confer degrees.
This university was founded
mainly through the initiative,
interest and funds provided by
a group of Chinese businessmen.
Chinese is the medium of instruction. Students mainly are
graduates of the Chinese High
Schools throughout Singapore
and the Federation of Malaya.
The first Class of University
graduates will receive degrees
at the end of the year.
The University of Malaya
has had a longer standing and
thus a proportionately larger
share of obstacles to overcome
in her more adventurous path
towards   development.
The University was founded
in 1949 on the findings and recommendations sf a Report by
the Carr-Saunder' Commission.
Before that, it existed as two
separate colleges, the Raffles
College (Arts and Science) and
the King Edward VII College
of Medicine.
Present enrollment is approximately 2,000 students in
5 faculties: Medicine, Science,
Arts, Engineering and Law.
English is the only language
of instruction. The main financial support has been provided
by the governments of the
Federation of Malaya, Singapore and Sarawak. At present
there exists two Divisions of
the University, one in Singapore and the other in Kuala
Lumpur, the Federal capital,
each   autonomous   in   its  own
sjphere but co-ordinated by a
Central Council
, A proper understanding of
university education in Malaya
must necessarily take into account the system of education
which has existed in that
country for the past 100 years.
This will then perhaps throw
some light on questions of
what part will it play in the
years to come towards determining the country's social,
economic, political and cultural  development.
Education in Malaya has
been determined mainly (and
I would say wholly) by British
rule in that country over the
past century and a half.
Government English Schools,
although, to a very much lesser extent were gra^it-in-aid
provided to a few Primary
Malay schools.
Chinese and Tamil vernacular schools were completely cut
off from any form of Government support. The former,
which achieved a fair amount
of success in developing a wide
network of Chinese Middle and
High Schools, managed its
growth from resources provided by private individuals.
Government education was,
therefore, synonymous w i t h
"English" education.
It would be expected from
this that an "English" education would be the logical passport through life and the
privileged few who had an
"English" education had the
colossal advantage of securing
the most remunerative and
most secure of jobs.
But jobs for the English
educated were identified with
the Civil Service, formerly referred to as the "Colonial Service" in Malaya.
Generally, until five years
ago a Malayan graduate would
use his education as a stepping-
stone to a post in the Civil Service. The more fortunate ones
became Administrative Officers, the less fortunate were
contented with Departmental
posts.
Since about five years ago,
university education in Malaya
has taken on a different turn.
This has been due mainly to
the following factors:
1—A growing consciousness,
with    the    advent    of    the
country's independence, that
the University has the added
role of producing men capable
of  leading the  nation.
2—The declining attraction
of the Civil Service.
3—T h e establishment o f
new Faculties — Engineering
and Law — together with an
awareness of the University as
an institution of research.
Political independence has
come to mean economic independence. And the brunt of the
responsibility has come to fall
on the universities.
4—-The new emphasis placed
upon the Department oi
Languages in the University
provides her with the further
role of assimilating and fostering the nations culture.
All this by no means brings
the picture to a happy close.
On the contrary, it merely begins to unfold a new series of
problems the problem of financing a growing University, the
problem of orientating the
University to a national interest the problem the nurtui--
ing eminent scholars upon
whom the University's reputation would be built—these and
a host of other problems are
our inheritance of a past
social order.
It brings to the University
student the awareness that he
has a role to play—to HIS
country and to HIS people. It
opens a completely new horizon. It is, in short, a new challenge—-a challenge to which, I
do hope, will produce a favorable response!

Wayne Osborne, the Birds won
two American exhibitions, and
one all - important Inter - city
league game.
In the big league game, the
Birds dumped the third-place
Cloverleafs 66-64 in a game
Which league boss Basil Sands
called "a very sloppy and disgraceful exhibition of basketball." Wayne Osborne marked
his return to the courts with a
great display of rebounding and
scoring. In all. Wayne potted 27
points. Norris Martin added 16.

or subject of the pictures"
