Marlene James, a first year law student, is well suited
for this position. She has the time, energy, and ability to
offer as well as a sincere desire to do a good job.
Here are some of the things she would like to have done:
# Undergrad societies and Pep Club working with frosh
orientation committee, more students taking part in the activities.
# Out-of-town frosh being sent frosh week pamphlets
and activities pamphlets so that they might know the university better before registration.
# Great Trek committee kept intact with view towards
canvassing industry next year for capital funds.
Her real desire for, and proven efficiency at this type of
work should make Marlene James YOUR choice for executive member.
DON GUNNING
IAN McKENZIE
The duties of the Executive Member are the following:
# College Shop.
# Housing.
# H.A.A.
# Frosh Orientation.
In   the  past  year  Ian  McKenzie  has  been  manager  of
college shop and in this capacity has worked on Brock Extension, and has introduced new lines, such as the college
blazer. The fact that college shop has doubled its profits
over the last year speaks well for Ian's organizational ability
Ian was chairman of the Tri-Services Ball this year and
as a commerce undergraduate was in charge of publicity and
tickets for the Commerce Ball. He was instrumental in producing the first Commerce year book last year.
I think Ian McKenzie has the experience and ability to
perform well the duties of Executive Member and therefore
I second him for this position.
JOHN DUERKSEN
AL STUSIAK
It is evident that the Executive Member must be a man,
efficient in organizing student committees and activities, tireless
in his efforts to obtain better housing for maximum student
benefit, eager and capable of carrying out these and many related tasks. The job will be difficult and demanding. The man
1 know to be more than a capable candidate is AL STUSIAK.

room in Brock. At noon he will
meet President McKenzie, and
at 12:30 will address students
in  the auditorium.
Title of the talk will be "A

will lunch at the Faculty Club
and at 2:30 meets the Press in
Ihe Publication Board's Ubyssey office.
He is be:,ng sponsored on

Tory club and the UBC National Federation of Canadian University Students (NFCUS) group.
Member from Prince Albert,
Saskatchewan, he was elected
last December to replace retiring and ailing George Drew as
Party Leader.
Free Tickets

The most exciting quartet in
the realm of clasical music, The
Quartetto Italiano, will be in
Vancouver on Monday, March
18 at the Georgia Auditorium.
A chance for those students
who are interested to hear this
remarkable quartet is being
provided by thc Special Events
Committee. Free tickets for the
program will include works by-
Beethoven and Veri and three
other composers may be picked
up at thc AMS Office starting

Storm Of Protest
On  Fee  Increase
Student councils' proposed five dollar increase in AMS
fees has brought a storm of protest from the Mens' Athletic
Association.
Fil Kueber, newly-elected Mens' Athletics Director, stated
that he was "definitely" opposed to the proposed scheme.
Keuber said ''the increase is not benefiting Athletics in
any way. It would mean only a $2500 certain increase whereas
we get nearly that much now from "A" cards."
He added that he felt that
"Athlc'ics are merely being used as a stepping-stone for thc
Publications increase."
SOUNDS GOOD
He   said.   "The   idea   of   stu-
! dents  getting  in  free to  games
!sounds   good,   but   that   is   not
! solving the athletic situation at
! all.   We arc still going to produce  losing  teams.  We  need  a
larger and more substantial increase—the   proposed   $1.50   is
totally  inadequate."
George Morfitt, newly-elected AMS treasurer, stated ''1

SUBSIDIZES
In regards to students who
would be unable to utilize
their "A" cards because of Saturday jobs or classes, Morfitt
said, "Every student on campus
subisidizes something — Women's Athletics for example.
Whether or not the students
partake in the activities they
should realize that it is their
duty  to support  them.''
Morfitt added that there are
several alternate proposals that
council will consider. One "is a
six dollar fee increase which
would provide Athletics with
a larger budget. Another is a
five dollar increase with "A"
cards remaining at the reduced
rate  of two dollars.
Morfitt added that the Athletic Committee Report to be
filed next week would most
likely have additional suggestions.
The present proposal will
most likely be presented to the

THE    UBYSSEY
Friday, March 8, 1937
Treasurer Morfitt Tells All
Here's The Details On The
Proposed Fee Increase
No Controversy
Two events in the news this week, point to a single
moral: some things are best left to the doctors. On Tuesday,
we learned that City Council had voted to place the controversial question of whether or not to fluoridate Vancouver's water supply before the people in aplebicite next
December. Then on Wednesday, we read that Randolph
Harding, the CCF member for Kaslo-Slocan, had urged
the Legislature to investigate cancer cure claims of the
Hoxsey clinics in the United States. Both ideas are unwise:
the first decision should be reversed; the second suggestion
ignored.
The majority of City Council is laboring under the misbegotten illusion that democracy can be applied to questions of public health. The question is to be referred to
the electorate so that, in the homey words of trumpet-tooting Alderman Frank Baker, "Vancouver citizens may have
the opportunity of studying both sides of the fluoridation
question, and make up their minds."
So Vancouver citizens are to be given the opportunity
of being subjected to a slanted propaganda barrage from
all the quacks, health faddists, pure food prophets and just
plain crack-pots; and reputable medical authorities are to
be given the opportunity of trying to counter high-powered
lunacy campaign with cold, colorless medical fact.
Vancouverites will be allowed to choose betwen a
demonstrably beneficial public health measure, and the
conflicting and hysterical counsel of every profiteering
health cult in North America. And unless we miss our bet,
Vancouverites will vote against fluordiation. Not on the
merits of the case, to be sure; but because God is generally
on the side with the largest and splashiest publicity budget.
There is no question among men who know of the
value of fluordiation; the question is a purely objective one,
no more of a publicly controversial nature than is the
question of the best brick-laying technique.
Putting the question of fluoridation to a plebiscite is
like having the electorate vote on the best route for a proposed pipeline, or whether to use steel or reinforced concrete in the construction of the New Library. The question is
by nature non-controversial; and the "controversy" which
apparently worries Alderman Baker would never had arisen
if the health faddists hadn't chosen to make opposition to
this particular measure their rallying-cry.
Similarly with Mr. Harding's proposal to look into the
claims of the Hoxsey Clinics. The American Medical Association has investigated the Hoxsey claims, and found them
wantng. That's good enough for us, and it ought to be good
enough for Mr. Harding too, and for everybdy else.
Most of the time, we trust the medical profession with
our lives; and individually and collectively, doctors do an
outstanding job of bearing that responsibility. For that
reason, on pubic health matters, we're willing to take what
the profession says, pretty much on faith. We will, at any
rate, until someone convinces us that the Great Canadian
Public is capable of performing major surgery, or ..deciding
the alleged "pros and cons" of fluoridation.
By GEORGE MORFITT
AMS  Treasurer
The consideration of a five-
dollar increase in AMS fees
' whicli has been presented to
Students' Council amounts, in
actuality, to a more efficient
administration and appropriation of students' funds. Instead
of continual outlays of money
throughout the year for the
Totem, Student Directory, and
admission to athletic contests,
the student would, under this
scheme, make a five-dollar payment to the AMS at the time of
registration. As the Totem cost
is $4.25, the Student Directory
price is $.35, and the "A" card
costs $5.00, the student stands
to gain $4.60 through a fee increase.
This proposal arose because
of two factors discovered this
year, the rapid increase in costs
associated with increased volume of publications and the
desir? of athletics to receive
an allocated portion of student
funds in place of the grant
which now exists. Through a
fee increase, publications
would receive an AMS allocation of $3.50 while athletics
would receive $1.50, increasing
its total budget to $4.75 per student.
FUTURE ACCEPTANCE
The immediate effect of future student acceptance of this
plan would be to assure a per
student grant to athletics and
a wholly • subsidized publications department through fees
and advertising. The long-term
effect would be to.encourage
all AMS members to enjoy, to
a greater extent, the literary
and athletic programs provided
at this institution.
It must be emphasized that
the additional $1.50 for athletics would not increase their
income from the AMS by any
appreciable amount. In 1957-58,
without a fee increase, gate
receipts and A-card sales are
expected to total $11,000 while
the AMS grant would approximate S26.000—a total of $37,-
000. The proposed fee increase
would give them $4.75'per student or $38,000, meaning an
income gain of only $1,000.
Thus the Men's Athletic Association is somewhat doubtful as to whether the current
proposal would do them more
harm than good. Although they
would receive a definite budget allocation on a per student
basis, income is not increased
and their chances of getting
a larger per student grant in
future would be seriously hindered. They are also interested
in seeing the recommendations
of the Athletic Investigations
Committee before arriving at
any definite conclusions with
regard to the proposal.
PERSONAL OPINION
It is my personal opinion that
the athletics fears are unfounded. If the students are intelligently approached and informed of the reason for the fee
hike as well as the benefits
accruing both to themselves
and the athletic program, athletics and MAA in particular
would be well advised to endorse and promote the $5.00
addition to AMS funds. They
may not, for many years, receive such a golden opportunity to stabilize their yearly
grant from the student body of
the University of British Columbia.
MAD President Says 'No'
But Athletes Are Objecting
Their Cut Would Be Small
By PHIL KUEBER
MAD   President
The proopsed five dollar fee
increase, of which $1.50 is tabbed  for  athletics, appears  on
its face to be a step toward
the solution of the rather critical state of our extra-mural
athletic programme. Without
a doubt, we need money to
convert UBC's teams from
laugiiing stocks to groups that
are followed and respected,
not only by the students from
UBC. but by the downtown public  and  press as well.
As George Morfitt points
out above, athletics stands to
realize very little extra income
from the proposed fee increase.
Now barring divine intervention, this minor increase won't
begin to solve our athletic dilemma. Nearly every university in the U.S.A., and the majority in Canada include in
their 'tudent fees sums ranging from ten to eighten dollars for athletics. Toronto allocates fifteen dollars per student. Western Ontario $13.50.
Without    a    comparable   sum
from students at UBC the state
of our athletic situation will
remain the same. Therefore, the
$13.50 we at UBC pay for
athletics will have to be increased by more than $1.50.
And it is for this reason that
increasing the athletic grant
by a pittance at this time is
extremely untimely. We are
going to have to ask the students to pay a greater amount,
as they will undobutedly realize when the plight of athletics
is clearly put before them—as
the forthcoming Athletic Investigations Report will probably do. Asking for $1.50 now
and another increase, say next
year, would not be greeted
with anl great delight, especially since the $1.50 wouldn't
put athletics in any better position than they are at present.
MORE CROWDS?
It is true that this fee increase would allow every student to attend games upon
presentation of his student
card. And. it is said, this will
increase attendance. However,
it is hard to see how increased
attendance is going to benefit
athletics, With no gate receipts,
the players will have no be'.-
ter equipment, no better coaching', and our teams will probably continue their losing ways.
And it is doubtful that any
more students, just because the
games   are   "free,"   will   come
out to watch our teams lose. Friday, March 8, 1057

Tie far
Today, in response to many
requests from readers, the TIE
BAR presents the first in a se-
xies entitled "Historical Highlights." which will feature little-
known anecdotes from Canadian
history.
The first little anecdote, tent
by Mrs. Sarah Anecdote of Gull
Track, Saskatchewan, was left
on our doorstep one stormy
night in February. We named it
Charles, fed it peblum, hired a
string of sorority girls to nurse
it, tried in vain to houiebreak it,
and bobbed its tail. Just last
week, it flew away, and just yesterday we read that it had been
appointed Chairman of the
Board of General Motors.
A* soon as it's houtebroken,
Ike is going to fire Dullas and
appoint it Secretary of State.
But we digress.
Today's first little story, as we
•ay, is entitled "Louis Rial and
his Cement Rowboat," or "John
A. MacDonald's Last Ride."
It all began in Saskatchewan,
where Riel was the leader of •
swarm of Creosole Indians. Riel.
determined to guide his hot-
blooded charges into peaceful
pursuits, had set them all to
work trapping asps on a Urge
verdant tract of prairie. The
work was very profitable; for
the grand ladies at the Rideau
Club in Ottawa considered it
very fashionable to wear asp-
skin cloaks and undergarments
that seasan.
All was peace and happiness
in the land of the Creosotes, but
■ dark cloud loomed on the hori-,
son. Parsimonious McFlint, the'
local Hudson's Bay Factor, had
ior years been breeding moles
in secret. He had been planning i
to sell the skins in Ottawa at an
enormous profit, but when Lady
Cynthia Protocol, the social arbiter of Ottawa, turned up at the
Governor-General's Ball in asp-
thin step-ins, his dreams of
wealth were shattered. All the
ladies in Ottawa wanted asp-
skin.   No one wanted mole.
But McFlint was crafty, and
he had friends in high places.
By judicious plucking of political plume, and clever salting
of the Conservative pork barrel,
he had soon arranged a crippling
inter-provincial tariff on asp-
skins. The Creosole enterprise
was shattered, and as winter
drew nigh, their hardship became extreme.
Soon, scattered demonstrations broke -out, and Sir John A.
MacDonald. fearing for his Hudson's Bay rye supply, quickly
dispatched a Royal Commissioner to investigate the Creosole
grievances. The Commissioner,
Bill A. MacDonald, quickly set
up shop in the Creosole settlement, and began to work. The
morning after his arrival, he
was holding a public hearing
when the floor suddenly gave
way, and MacDonald, desk and
all disappeared forever into the
earth. Turning to the assembled
Creosoles, McFlint shouted, —
"See, it's your filthy asps that
have done this thing!" They've
swallowed up the Royal Commissioner!"
It was then that Louis Riel
made his famous speech that incited the Creosoles to open rebellion, and added a picturesque
chapter  to  Canadian  history.
Turning to the assembled multitudes, Riel cried, "He lies. It is
ze moles have done it! Are we
to be exploited by Factor McFlint, who does not know his
asp from a mole in the ground?"
Shouting. "Hurrah for Louis
Riel and his cement rowboat,"
the natives lynched McFlint,
drove out the moles, and swept
into open rebellion. The revolt
was quickly quelled, however,
and the ranks of the Creosoles
were decimated. Those few that
still survive now work for Doug
Hillier of the TIE BAR, 712
West Pender, trying to perfect
an asp-skin necktie. Meanwhile,
he's concentrating on the latest
in short-point button-down collars.
And especially for the Diefenbaker   Rally   tonight,   Doug   is
selling    tab-collar    shirts    that
make every man look as handsome as George Hees.
Do Politics
Belong In
Classroom
By CAROL GREGORY
Should teachers put forth
their own political views in the
classroom?
It's a fifty-fifty proposition if
we listen to four leaders in the
educational field who spoke on
Thursday at the University of
B. C. on the question: "Should
a teacher associate himself with
a political party, and if so,
should he express "his views in
his classroom?"
Harold Weir, Vancouver Sun
columnist, well-known for his
political views, gave an emphatic "no" to the query.
REVOLTING
"There is something revolting
and intellectually unclean to
push party views in the classroom. The student is there to
learn, not to be indoctrinated,"
he said.
Defending the issue was Mrs.
W. V. MacDonald, president of
the Parent-Teachers' Federation
of B. C, who spoke as "a parent,
a ratepayer, a voter and a responsible citizen."
"Teachers should not only be
allowed to discuss their personal political beliefs, but should
be encouraged to do so," she
said. "Society is in desperate
need of thinking, decisive and
acting people. If teachers do
not do this, I do not think they
are fulfilling their role."
UNREALISTIC
"It is very unrealistic to pre-
AMID FLOWERING Palm Trees in a hot

Thursday the proposition that teachers
should put forth their own political views

tend that government is not important to everyone," she said.
Dr. David Corbett, UBC political science professor, did not
feel there should be any restriction of political views in the
classroom, but stressed that
teachers must not be considered
incompetent if they do not follow the practice.
"Teaching and politics both
take a good deal of time. The
community shouldn't insist poli
tics be the hobby of every teacher," he said.
He felt all teachers should
"be honest" when answering
controversial questions. "However, we must first assume they
all have political preferences,"
he said.
IVORY-TOWER
Taking an ivory-tower view
was Dr. Barnett Savery, head of
the UBC department of philosophy  and  psychology  who  in
sisted "students aren't ready for
political indoctrination until
they reach university level."
"In the first place, it is not
the duty of teachers to propagandize. And it is only the
abler students who can make
up their own minds," he said,
He said he believed the department of philosophy to be
the only place where politics can
be discussed  "properly."

Mr. AC
CANADIAN
ALUS-CHALMERS
LACHINI, QUI.  •   ST. THOMAS, ONT.
WHO IS HE?
Mr. A-C repretentt Canadian Allis-Chalmers, and all of Allit-
Chalmers. You've teen him in the churchet, schoolt, ttcrei...
or met him at civic, tocial and professional meetings. You've
teen him in ihe thopt and offices producing for the betterment
of people everywhere, whether in peace or in war.
Just who it Mr. A-C ? Because the antwor to a question like
that it complex, it it easy for people to pick up mistaken
imprettiont.
For tho take of the record, left take Mr. A-C apart and
tee who he really it.
WHO IS CAPITAL?
Capital doesn't wear a silk hat at Allis-Chalmers.
"Capital" consists of more than 47,000 shareholders.
Mr. Capital might be a grocer, a farmer, a widow,
a school teacher, or YOU. He might be a company
employe in the office or shop or an officer of the
company.
This is an example of democratic ownership distinctive in the history of large corporations.
WHO IS MANAGEMENT?
Management is the guiding hand (or head) hired by
the owners to make an organization tick—and click!
Management coordinates the efforts of individuals
and sets the direction the company travels.
Who is Mr. Management at Allis-Chalmers? Not
just the officers and division heads of the company.
Management is the salesman in the field, the foreman in the shop.
ii  every empleye (rem errand bey le pretiieitt whe
centrteetet by werd and deed le the prof mi ef the cempony.
Speaking of errand boys, one of the top officers of
Allis-Chalmers started with that job. Three others
started as student engineers. Five began in the sales
organization, while another officer started as a
machinist in the Allis-Chalmers shops. All Allis-
Chalmers officers know the business from the ground
up—through experience with the company.
Mr. Management doesn't wear a high wing collar
at Allis-Chalmers. Neither does he have any monopoly on his job.
WHO IS LABOR?
The man who works in the shop is spoken of in the
newspaper as "labor". Actually, he may be a skilled
craftsman, as much as master of his trade as a
dentist or a surgeon.
Actually he may be part of Capital through ownership of company stock.
The fact that he works with his hands makes him
no less a part of Allis-Chalmers than the man or
woman who works at a desk. The terms "Capital",
"Management", and "Labor" are indefinite and
overlapping. Many a man who works in the shop is
actually a part of all three groups.
INTRODUCING MR. A-C
Who then is Mr. A-C? He is a combination of
47,000 shareholders, 40,000 employes, more than
5,000 dealers and their employes, more than 10,000
suppliers who furnish in excess of 100,000 separate
items for manufacture.
His is a company which contributes something to
better living in nearly every home in Canada and
the United States—in supplying machines to grow
and process food, generate electricity, pump water,
build roads, produce building materials.
Mr. A-C is a potent contributor to the welfare and
livelihood of millions of people. It takes the right
hand, left hand, head, heart and pocketbook to
achieve such results. No one part of him can do
the job alone. Friday, March 8, 1957

Powell River People
Witness Dedication
First recorded dedication of a Sherwood  Lett,   President  Nor-
foreign university on Canadian
or continental soil took place at
Powell River, Sunday, March 3.
An audience of 400 residents
along with nearly 300 Hungarian
students, professors, and their
families witnessed a history-
making ceremony when Dean
Kallman Roller, head of Sopron
University's Forest Faculty announced: "I declare the University of Sopron in Canada officially opened."
The ceremony climaxed historic freedom flight of the entire
Sopron University Forestry Faculty from revolt-torn Hungary
during the anti-Soviet revolutions last fall.
DIGNITARIES PRESENT
University of B. C. and government dignitaries were present at the dedication ceremony.
Short addresses of welcome
were delivered   by   Chancellor

Allen on behalf.of UBC.
Hon. Les Peterson, Minister of
Education; Hon. Ray Williston,
Minister of Lands and Forests;
and Reeve Ray Weaver of Powell River Municipality, also took
part in welcoming the Hungarians to their new home.

A Critic Talks
Im
By 'The Rainmaker"
THE RAINMAKER. How pleasant it is to be seduced
by a picture, instead of, as in the case of many of the recent
arty gutter-epics, being subjected to a brutal rape of the
psyche.
The Rainmaker is not Adult Entertainment Only, but
it is adult. It's funny, profound, and has a special American
flavor, a la Picnic and Bus Stop. Visually anfl emotionally,
director Joseph Anthony has, to use an unforgivable cliche,
captured the American spirit
M**y*l*>M*?«W*rv.v.wy
The script has been lifted almost in toto from the stage
version. The few changes have
all been for the better. Chaff
has been deleted and many delicious   profundities   added.
This is really a filmed play.
It makes little use of the potentialities of the motion picture medium, but when one considers some of the experiments
in progressive camera techniques
to hit the screen lately, it may
be just as well.
A master such as Elia Kazan
can add. meaning and impact
to a presentation of naturalistic
material by means of clever
staging and imaginative camera
work, but Richard Nash's play
is explicit enough to get along
cinematically on it's own more
theatrical terms,
REMINDED
This picture reminded me of
Friendly Persuasion, which was
also very soft and warm, but
which unfortunately went overboard on innocuousness, and had
boom-all to say,
I liked Burt Lancaster's bravura performance as Starbuck,
especially his lusty sensual appreciation of the rain when it
arrived. I would rank this on a
par with his moving portrayal
of Doc in Come Back Little
Sheba.
I didn't like Katie Hepburn
unreservedly—too many stagy
postures and grimaces—but she
has an unbelievably sensitive
vocal instrument. Just to listen
to her melodiously poetic treatment of Nash's prose is quite
a sufficient thrill for one night.
Vocally, it's the finest performance I've seen.

Cameron Prudhomme, who carried on with an almost tangible

a supporting performance of such
stature as to make him liable
for an Oscar in a leaner year.
But the biggest news is Earl
Holliman, who makes not a
wrong move in his blundering,
antic progress across the screen,
and pretty well steals the show.
But I reserve most of my laurels for Richard Nash for showing that Tennessee William's
and Elia Kazan's dirty-grey Biology slides are not the only mature things being done by the
American movie industry and
that a film can be meaningful
without being either ugly or
grim.

By TONY GAMBRILL
Meet Fanshawe the man who
is enjoying life at UBC, the
Playground of thev West. Of
course, he isn't so happy today,
but he'll have recovered after
an afternoon at the Georgia.
You see, Fanshawe was
never a brilliant geography
student. He didn't get as much
out of the lectures as most people do, principally because he
never attended any. And. in
his search after knowledge in
geography he never got much
inspiration • or even solid fact
from his textbook because he
never bought one. He spenf
the money on golf tees.   .
As for the common sense aspect, the everyday bits of information that one picks up, Fan*
shawe didn't grasp much that
helped  him  in  geography.
"PLAYBOY"
But why isn't he happy today, you ask? Has his girl
friend joined the S.C.M. and
cancelled his subscription to
"Playboy?" Has his fourth for
bridge caught pneumonia?
Aren't his Scotch lessons being paid for? (Actually he has
been lucky to get away with
that Scotch lessons gag as long
as he has). No, it is just that
he has to explain to his geography prof, why two versions
of his geography exam were
handed in.
Fanshawe is careful about
the way he runs his affairs.
When he invested in J. Peters
Sprague (B.A. Geog.) to write
his mid-term, Fanshawe decided to make sure his stand-in
showed up. Well, one minute
before the exam was to start
Sprague hadn't showed so Fan*
shawe walked in.
YO-YO CONTEST
So he'd fail. That wasn't so
bad, but Sprague also went into the exam thirty seconds
later. He was late because the
Yo-Yo contest lasted longer
than he expected.
When Fanshawe and Sprague met outside the room after
the test was over the whole
ghastly mistake revealed itself.
Now the geog. prof, wanted an
explanation for Fanshawe —
(23%) and Fanshawe (87%).
But Fanshawe has it beaten
I think. He has plenty of enemies he says and he has plenty
of friends who are jokers. Now
he can't pin anyone down but
somebody figured thev'd give
him a bad time and write the
exam in his name.
Be reasonable, he's going to
say to his geog. prof., that 87%
just isn't Fanshawe. No, pride
isn't going to stand in his way.
That 23% on the other hand is
Fanshawe. If his geog. prof,
kept an attendance record (this
note, he figures, should catch
his prof's conscience), he'd
know that Fanshawe wasn't a
fanatic lecture-attender.
I guess he'll win his case.
Fanshawe's record stands behind him quite solidly. And
with a victory like this you
should see him down at the G.
You'll recognize him by the
row of full glasses stacked under the table that he reserves
for when the waiters cut him
off.

Gnup is still looking for players to round out his team, although, he warned, "We will play
several games after exams."
Approximately 12 games have
been scheduled for this season.
The first games have been tentatively set for March 28 and 29
against Western Washington.
Although Gnup sounded fairly
optimistic about his chances in
the Evergreen Conference, —
(quote: "we can beat doze guys
in our division") he had several
good excuses for not fielding a
top-notch team:
1. Playing facilities. "We
need a baseball field. We got no
.jlace to practice," Gnup said.
2. Late schedule. Conference
schools run their schedules thru
till the end of May; a month
after UBC closes.
More Grief

After coaching the Jayvee
basketball team to a fairly successful season, Peter Mullins is
faced with a still more difficult
task — that of getting up a track
team to compete in the Evergreen Conference.
Last year a contingent of lour
runners represented UBC at the
championship meet, compared to
Eastern's 26, Whitworth's 24 and
Western's 26.
Mullins said, "At the minimum, we should have 24 guys

half, the Birds backline ran
through and around the helpless
Bruins scoring thirteen points
without a reply. Ted Hunt, playing on? of his finest games, made
a monkey out of former New
South Wales star John Dowse,
and handled the ball beautifully. Both Hunt and Don Spence
worked well together, and according to coach Max Howell,
"played like Internationals."
The Thunderbirds utilized
the exra man, bringing fullback John Mulberry, or the opposite winger into the backs,
and they sent Jack Maxwell
away for four trys, while Hunt
scored one himself on a beautiful fake scissors. Gerry Mc-
Gavin kicked three goals and
one penalty.
Varsity played all but ten
minutes of the game one man
short, and the last few with only
thirteen men. The UBC pack,
especially Don Shore, Derik Val-
lis, and Ron Stewart, all played
exceptionally well in containing the Bruin forwards.
UBC Braves will travel to
Walla Walla, Washington to
meet Whitman College in an exhibition game this Saturday,

Face Hard
Weekend
By IAN TODD
Varsity's soccer 'Birds face
their toughest week-end of the
year this Saturday and Sunday
as they meet Royal Oaks at UBC
Stadium on Saturday, and Pil-
seners at McBride Park on Sun*
day.
Two wins will put the 'Birds
in undisputed possession of first
place by two points, and they
will still have a game in hand
over both Pilseners and Capilanos.
Saturday's game should not
present too much difficulty to
Ed. Luckett's well-trained squad,
but Sunday's game may be a
different story. There are some
rumors that one or two of the
"indispensable" starting eleven
may be unavailable for Sunday's
contest against the robust Pilseners.
However, 'Birds now boast an
eight-win, one-draw, one-loss
record in league play, and with
any luck will boost the win column to ten this week-end.

Pictured above during a C.B.C. radio interview on site
are two Engineers vitally concerned with this project:
Dr. P. L. Pratley, (Centre) well known Consulting
Engineer, designed the original structure as well as
the raising operation. He spent fourteen years with
Dominion Bridge gaining experience before going into
private practice in 1920.
Rots Chamberlain, (Left). Project Engineer with
Dominion Bridge started with the Company on Summer jobs, where he had experience in the shops, office
and on erection work, while studying for his B.Eng.
degree at McGill University. He later did post graduate
work at the University of Birmingham, (England) and
has been with the Company since his return in 1953.
At 27 years old, Ross, working with Senior Officials of
the Company, is responsible for the engineering aspects
of this great undertaking.
'ne of the most spectacular and complicated works required for the
St. Lawrence Seaway is now in progress. It is the permanent raising of
the southern end of the Jacques Cartier Bridge .. . the Largest operation
of its kind ever undertaken anywhere.
The purpose is to provide a minimum vertical clearance of 120 feet above
high water level in the seaway ship canal. An interesting feature is that
uninterrupted traffic must be maintained over the bridge throughout
practically all of the construction period.
The work has been entrusted to Dominion Bridge which built the original
bridge in 1929. This project typifies the resources and experience of the
Company in the field of structural engineering.
Dominion Bridge, an all-Canadian Company, is the foremost fabricator
in this country of bridges and steel structures. Less well known is
Dominion Bridge's leadership in other engineering fields. Cranes and
other handling equipment, hydraulic machinery, boilers for heating and
process steam requirements, mining machinery, refinery towers, pulp mill
digesters, oil well machinery—these are but a few examples of the
diversification of Dominion Bridge operations.
To-day we have the largest and strongest Canadian force of design
engineers in our field. Much of their work is of a pioneering nature, and
they are constantly being called upon to solve problems connected with
large projects in virtually every type of industry. Theirs is a never-
ending challenge. This "Unique Bridge Raising Project" is only one
fascinating chapter in their story.'
