Canvassers Eat
Dress In Armorie
The Blitz committee needs 600 student volunteers for thc
Development Fund Blitz tonight. Only 14,000 students have
volunteered to canvass acording to Blitz chairman Charlie
Connaghan. "We require a total of 2000 canvassers to make the
drive" stated Connaghan.
Area chairmen will report tos —-——

Student Councillors are forming a canvassing group all their own for the blitz
tonight. They will personally do the joe-
work of canvassing, and will, for the night
at least, abandon their leadership roles.

too); they say "U.B.C. Development Fund."
Culmination Of
Two Year Program
Tonight's Blitz will be the
culmination of a two-year program designed to raise money
for the University's needs from
as   many   sources  as  possible.
The Blitz had its start in the
fall of 1956, when a group of
students decided to plan a
"Second Great Trek." Modeled
after the Great Trek of 1922,
which resulted in UBC moving
from the Fairview Shacks to
Point Grey, the campaign began with all out-of-town students petitioning their home
towns during Christinas vacations.
Alter the Holidays, a student committee prepared a
brief for the Cabinet, Bon Trevino, Don Jabour and Al
Thackray presented the brief
to Premier Bennett and the
Shortly after the presentation of the brief, Minister of
Education Leslie Peterson announced in the Legislature that
the Government would match
up to $5 million in public sub-
Meanwhile, a plan to go to
the public for tbe first time
for UBC capital funds was well
on its way to finalization under
the auspices of the UBC
Alumni Association.
The move by the Government caused a speed-up in
plans, and the challenge was
quickly taken up by the Alum
ni. Mr. Paul Cooper was recruited to act, a.s Chairman of
the UBC Development Fund
Committee. Mr. Art Sager,
Director of the Alumni, and
Mr. Aubrey Roberts, a former
Great Trekker, were placed at
the disposal of the Committee.
A large group of prominent
city businessmen rounded out
the committee.
By December of 1957, the
Committee had raised $5 million. UBC students pledged
$3   per  year   for   three   years,
totalling approximately $150,-
000. Mr. and Mrs. Leon Koerner gave $500,000. Mr. J. G.
Robson gave $250,000 earmarked f o r students residences. Local 676 of the Beverage Dispensers Union donated to the Fund, while Ocean
Cement Ltd. gave $50,000.
Mr. and Mrs. Walter C.
Koerner earmarked their
$375,000 gift to the library,
while many other contributions came in for tho University to add lo already existing
Thc Government has increased its matching offer to
$7.5 million.

Blitz Covers Capital
Operation A Problem
The Blitz tonight is much more than an attempt to gain
the money that builds a University. And it is much less than
a final effort to gain enough money to run a University.
It is first an active expression of student ideals.
Two thousand students—and we trust that at least that
number will turn out tonight—will spend time and effort
proving they believe the words they mouth. They have gone
to every other source for money. Many of them will not benefit
directly from the money or from gains to the University that
an adequate Capital expenditure would provide.
But they nevertheless believe that the University does
need the financial support, and they have verbally condemned
the Government for not giving adequate support.
As an alternative they have decided to show the Government that the people of the Province do believe in the need for
higher education, and in the need for finances to make
higher education possible.
Through cooperation with the Alumni, the Board of
Governors, the Administration and the Faculty, tne students
have advertised their cause throughout the Province.
One of the greatest advertisements was the voluntary
pledging of $5 per year for three years for every UBC student
in attendance.
Now they are going one step further, and it is, we feel,
this one step which shows them as paying far more than lip-
service to their beliefs.
This move is the Blitz,
However one point must be made clear,
No matter how successful the Development Campaign is in
gaining monies for Capital expenditures, that money can only
provide the shell of the University. The shell is badly needed,
but it is useless unless Operating costs can be met.
It apears that the Campaign and the Blitz will be successful, that students' efforts—and sacrifices—will not have
been in vain; but Operating costs are another problem altogether.
Operating costs are a problem that cannot be attacked'
by students or faculty or Administration; a problem that
rests in small degree with the Federal Government, but in
very large part with the Provincial Government.
Dear Sir:
(I think that's right, isn't it?)
I understood there was a
itty bitty piece of space you
wanted filled and I thought
oh boy, here is my chance for
fame in the wonderful medium
of the press. I think the press
is neat cause if you're someone real important like student
councillors you get a chance
to see your name in print all
the time and me, I don't sport
one of those fancy blazers or
get my name on any ol' higher-
archy chart like they're making for themselves.
It's funny about that chart—
it's huge, about as big as the
wall in the Brock that they're
going to put it on. What's
more, I understand it cost a
pile of dough.
In fact, it was expensive at
first and then for some completely unexplained reason, it
all of a sudden cost half again
as much and all the little man
working on it said as he waved
his hands, was, "I'm sorry, I
guess I goofed."
You know that's funny,
cause if I did that in a club,
we'd be fresh out for more
money—but not if you're a
councillor you just seem to
have more money than anything, especially if you figure
.there's a chance to have your
name on a hierarchy chart.
If I had more space I'd tell
you more about this whingle
dingle chart. It's real soft in
color, picked to please the eye
I understand; and golly, one
day a great big truck brought
it out to campus and six big
men brought it into the Brock
—that shows how important it
must be to everyone—even
you an me who won't get their
name on it.
Yours truly,

Law Level Critic
Editor, The Buyssey.
Dear Madam:
Mr. L. Fournier's letter in
criticism of the Psychology
100 text again illustrates the
low level to which some students will sink in criticism of
the Faculty.
In producing this text the
authors undoubtedly had the
students' interests at heart and
had Mr. Fournier bothered to
read the preface he might have
become aware of that fact.
Moreover, the two reviews of
the text which have appeared
so far, in professional psychological journals, have both been
highly commendable . The fact
that the book is written in an
"easy to read" style is one of
its strong advantages.
I would say it is obvious
that Mr. Fournier could not
have profited so much from it
that he was made fully aware
of his own incompetence and
lack of qualification to set himself up as an authority.
May I suggest that he read
it,  again  and again.   Besides,
as  a   budding  Commerce-man
he should at the earliest opportunity look into the facts concerning   the   relationship   between   text-book   royalties   in
producing   a   book.   His   criti-
- cism was fully unjustified.

Not Scientifik
Dear Madam:
I don't like to start off calling you Madam, as it brings to
mind some costly times. Anyhow I started readin the
Ubyssey lately, (I couldn't
never before,) maybe its because of the brite colors these
days or maybe its a sublime-all
interjekshun, and I got to
thinkink what with all these
young fellers expressin themselves one of us oldtimers
should put in his word.
Well, like that Giles feller, I
bin around this here campus a
long time and if things keep up
like they have bin I'll be a-
round for a while yet. Jest to
clear things up, English is my
So supose I start off by telling you about some tilings that
have struck me. No this ain't
gone to be scientifik about mis-
sills or halos. What I want to
talk about is the wonderful
bunch of gals that calls themselves Soreilys. They all sits
. around in the caf with their
elbows and other accoutry-
ments on the table and talks
sweetly about important sub-
jeks like Froid and Kin.seymeti
and other fraternal bodies.
Then one of em gathers her
new sack look and rushes off
to the ladies side to powder
her nose or somethin and wile
she's gone tho others talk
kindly about her. The points
out how pretty, or pretty and
astute, or pretty stout (T jest
can't remember which it is) she
is. Then another light a Do-
More-eh cigarette and says it
doesn't  matter  as  her   Daddy
has bought her a Mercedes, and
they all smile. I figured the
joks right away, it seems that
the car packs punch enough
(notice the alliterashun) to carry this sister around.
Well about this time I got
another coffee and turned my
attenshun elsewhere, but I'll
talik about that another time—
I don't want to use up valooable
space which could be devoted
to other critiks.

The University's capital
finances over the next ten
years will present an encouraging picture if the Fund's
objective is met, Operating
costs are not included in the
Development Campaign estimates.
From Provincial coffers, $10
million is budgeted. The Federal Government, through the
Canada Council, will provide
$5 million. If the full $7.5
million is donated from private
sources, and then is matched
by the Province, UBC can look
forward to a $30 million building program during the next
ten years.
Blitz chairman Chuck Connaghan, when asked what he
hoped for as an ave/age donation, said:
"It is not just the money
that counts now. Five dollars
is plenty if that is what a
family can afford. We also
have to gain support for the
University and encourage all
of B.C. to think of UBC as
their University in the future,
If we can show the Government that a great many people
have an interest in UBC, we
will have accomplished a great
deal, I hope every UBC student will take part in tonight's
blitz, to ensure that our work
in the past is brought to a successful conclusion."

be on the campus for four flours
stationed near the various, heavy
trafic areas. They will be given
all the information that they
will need, including a map of the
campus and an eight page program of times and events to
which they may refer.
In view of the fact that some
100,000 people are expected to
visit the campus during the day
and a half that it will be 'open',
it is essential that there be at
least five hundred people on
hand to help them find the displays and exhibits.
This need is especially acute
■when viewed in the sight of the
present Development Fund drive.
Many people who have contributed to the University will be wanting to see how their money is
being spent.
An important display of the
university's many facets will
give the canvassers an added selling point when making their appeal for funds.
The sixteen hours that thc
campus will be 'open' has been
divided into four shift of four
hours each. These arc from 6:00
to 10:00 p.m. on Friday night;
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; 2:00 to
6:00 and 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. on

at 1:00 p.m., in Physics 201.

million dollar Buchanan Building just completed.

of the arts faculty will be centered in the new arts building.

people will take place during
the two-day exposition in the
new lecture theatres.
Food for hungry guests will
also be available on the second
floor, so that visitors may relax
between viewings of the special
UBC movies "Tuum Est" or the
historical Hamber film.

shown to the public before this
time is a movie record of the
many events that shaped B.C.'s

the first great Trek up until the
present expansion. "Tuum Est"

activities of UBC and the work

No that's not right either. Open House
needs girls.  These  girls  are  working  for
Open House. Brad is working for Open

act. Do come.
Kick Off
Blood Drive
A virile group of red-shirted,
red-blooded, thick-headed engineers started the blood drive today by trundling ten nubile
nymphs along the main mall in
their infamous chariot.
They gave a total of 352 pints,
one-ninth of the nine-clay quota
of 3200 pints.
Not only frustrated engineers
but anybody else who feels like
il, and if you don't feci like it
you should be ashamed of yourself, will find the blood-collectors in the Armory from 9.30 to
4.30 every day but weekends
'rorn now to February 19.
The Forestry people will be
m hand, administering cokes to
he donors.
Sloe-eyed maidens will whis-
>er nothings in your cars, bolstering your courage for your
moment of truth.
And you get a smart little
blood-pint to pin on your lapel,
or to sell to your anemic friends.
Quieten your nerves, take a
Miltown and bleed.
