Condemnation Of Totem Unjust
Labour Council
Must Take Blame
AMS President Trevino
Reacts To Union Reply
The Ubyssey hopes
that this letter from
Council President,
Ben Trevino to the
secretary of the local
union involved will
correct some of the
misinformation carried by the downtown press yesterday.
Secretary, Local No. 54,1.P.E.U.,
Vancouver, B..C
Dear Mr. E.ieane:
Thank you for your letter of October 30.
First, let mo point out that no university money
whatsoever is involved. The money comes strictly from
student fees, which are used to subsidize and promote
student activities. These monies are disbursed by the
Students' Council, which is elected by the student body
each year. No tax money whatsoever is involved. In fact,
the student body has saved taxpayers quite a lot af money
through the years. They have built with t.ieir own money
over $3,000,000 worth of buildings. In the depths of the
Depression, when the university could not find enougn tax
money to cut the grass on university lawns, students were
paying to build gymnasium and a Union building. Just
two weeks ago, we turned over to the university t.ie keys
to a $350,000 extension to our building.
UNION SHOP
Secondly, the company which has been awarded the
contract is a union shop. We verified this and asked wny
the union stamp is not on many of their products. The
answer was quite simple: They give the school t.ie option
of displaying the label or not, as they see fit. You should
have access to records which would verify this. It is a
CIO Local 4. 	
Now as to the reason
for the decision to send
the contract to the U.S.
As I have mentioned, we
on ihe Students' Council
deal with student money
— and over 80 per cent
of our students pay their
own way through UBC
with summer earnings —
this is NOT a "rich man's
college." We are therefore
bound in conscience and
in honor to get the lowest
possible price for our
contracts, and we dis-
ributed  bids  to   all  the
printers who might be interested in publishing the Totem.
The lowest price we received was from Evergreen
Press — locally. The bid from Yearbook House was over
$10,000 LESS than the bid from Evergreen, on the same
specification. Because we WANTED to keep the job in
the province, we asked Evergreen for another bid. (As
you know, this is NOT the usual way of doing things,
but we wanted to give local firms every chance).
BID STILL HIGHER
Evergreen then submitted a bid that was lower but
still $8,570 more than the bid from Yearbook House.
Evergreen was given another opportunity to bid, and after
changing the specifications for the cover of the book, changing the size of the book from a 9 x 12 to an 8V2 x 11, and
some other minor changes, their final bid was still $4,754
more than the American bid. The figure quoted in one
of the downtown papers is incorrect. Anyone who wishes,
may come to Brock Hall and check our records.
Evergreen Press is the largest printing house in Western Canada. But no one paid any attention to UBC when
we could not get competitive bids and Evergreen's prices
spiraled upwards every year. Now that we have found a
competitive bidder, we were threatened with repercussions on our advertising revenues, etc., from the company
that lost the bid after every effort was made to award
them the job4 Wnat really strikes us as unjust is that, at
a time when UBC is in dire need of help, every effort
seems to be being made to represent this as university
(taxpayer's)  money.
MONEY SAVED
The money which was saved by awarding the contracts
to a competitive firm was immediately passed on to the
students in the form of a reduced price for the Totem and
the issuing of membership«cards free when they had
previously cost  thirty-five cents.
As you see, Mr. Sheane, we tried our level best to
award the contract locally. We could not, in conscience,
give the contract to Evergreen Press while we held a bid
$8,570 lower for the same product. Further, we felt there
wa.s something drastically wrong when a company employing union help (at probably higher wages) can ship then-
product about 2,000 miles and still land the books in
Vancouver at a price about 33 per cent less than a firm
in Vancouver with no transportation charges  to pay  for.
APOLOGY UNNECESSARY
So you see, Mr. Sheane, we have nothing to apologize
for. We have always worked well with the B.C. Federation
of Labour and we hope that our good relations will continue. I feel sure that when you know all the facts you
will try to rectify some of the impressions you may have
created  while  working  with  incomplete  information.
As I said before, you are quite welcome to come to
Brock Hall and go through our records of the transactions.
We would appreciate your interest. I hope the information
contained in this letter will be passed on to your local. We
received quite a hit of help from the trade union movement
last year, and we would not like to jeopardize your friendship.
Yours  sincerely.
BEN TREVINO,
President,  Alma  Mater  Society
The Vancouver Labour Council has used false information
■n condemning the publication of the Totem by an American
firm, according  to Ben Trevino,  AMS  president.

Services Committee, Peter Meekison.
  ---■• In an interview with the Ubyssey Meekison stated that only
through a major overhaul of
the existing set-up in this manner would the perennial problems of service, prices and quality be solved permanently.
"It is unf ir to student-;," he
said, "that because expansion
funds come out of food profits,
students pay higher prices and
get less and poorer food for
them."
He also stated that the committee feels that immediate expansion of  the  Brock  Caefteria
is necessary.
"The focal point of student
interest is rapidly shifting from
the caf. to the Brock and this
trend will be magnified when
the new arts building is opened,"
he said.
He stated that in existing eating places inadequate facilities
were hampering service. All

"In this kitchen 30-year-old

UBC Faculty
Okays Move
Opinion among faculty members about the "one Supp" rule
being applied to their faculty-
was, if nothing else, diverse.
Peter Lusty, an instructor in
the Faculty of Commerce said,
"The rule already virtually applies here. A student must get
special permission from the
Dean to write even one. Two
supplemental is a very unusual
thing.   It's a good idea."
Professor A. W. Carrothers of
the Faculty of Law stated, "We
haven't any supps in this faculty. A 55" average is necessary to pass. I think it's a good
thing for this faculty."
In the Faculty of Education,
Dr. H. L. Stein said, "I refuse to
commit myself. We have not
discussed the matter. The subject will come up at the next
Education Faculty meeting."
Dr. A. W. Marris of the Civil
Engineering department said,
"No, the rule should not be applied here. If a man can carry
two supps, so much the better.
We take eight to ten subjects
here, so if one or two or three
go down, that's not too bad. If
a person writes a supp, he gets
only a pass anyway. I think as
is, is okay for us."
The Labor Council condemned
the AMS for letting the contract
of the Totem go to a U.S. firm,
instead of to the local company
which submitted a bid.
Trevino pointed out that the
difference between the lowest
bid and the one submitted by
the American firm, Yearbook
House, was $8,570.
A SAVINGS
The money saved oy awarding
the contract to the U.S. firm
made it possible to reduce the
price of the Totem and issue free
membership cards.
Details of the bidding, as released by Trevino, show that the
local firm, Evergreen Press, was
given a chance to rebid after
the U.S. price was received.
It was hoped that they could
submit a low enough estimate
to keep the business in B.C.
After careful consideration the
contract was awarded to Yearbook House at a saving of approximately one dollar per student.
MEETING
The editor of the Totem and
the business manager of the
AMS met with members of the
International Phot oengravers
Union to hear their point of
view.
Trevino, referring to the meeting, stated that the union maintained that every student on the
campus would be willing to pay
an extra dollar to keep the publication of the Totem in B.C.
"The union was interested in
the principles involved, not the
economics," said the AMS president.
STUDENTS* WISHES
It was explained to the union
delegates that the Students Council felt it was acting upon the
wishes of the student body when
it accepted the American bid.
Last spring a referendum asking for a fee increase to raise
the publications grant was defeated.
From this the council concluded that the students would,
appreciate any saving that could
be made for them in the way
of publication costs.
LOWEST BIDDER
By awarding the contract to
the lowest bidder the AMS was
able to meet this wish.
The impression of the Vancouver Labor Council seemed to
be   that   taxpayers   money   was

By  RUPERT  BUCHANAN
The existentialist philosophy
of Jean-Paul Sartre, as elaborated by Prof. Peter Remnant
yesterday, is a perceptive ethic
based on a muddy mctaphysic.
TRIES TO DODGE
Tho mctaphysic of t h e
French philosopher is based
on a distinction between self-
conscious beings and other objects. Self-conscious beings,
men, are distinguished by their
capacity for choice. IJ is the
ability  to  choose   which   is  the
sole claim of man for dignity,
and paradoxically, it is this
very opportunity that man
tries to dodge. He tries to excuse his choices on the grounds
of heredity, education, his parents or moral principles.
PURPOSELESSNESS
Keynote of inanimate, un-
self-conscious world is its lush
purposelessness'. For the sen
tient being, a recognition of
this purposelessness comes as
mysteriously and shatteringly
as a religious experience, and
brings  with   it,   as  Prof.   Rem
nant said, "a feeling as if one
had reached into a dark cupboard for some apples and
grasped instead a dead mouse."
People, particularly the middle class, shut their eyes to the
confusion, anfl, in addition, refuse to recognize their unique
freedom. , They bind themselves to the fact that every decision they make is their own,
even a decision to accept someone else's decision, and in making it they are holding that all
men in such a situation should
make a similar decision. Page 2

bribing   Won't
It   Only   Disgusts   Us
"Each student will purchase an average
of $28.77 worth of clothing in the next five
weeks. There are 8,900 students at UBC
with a total purchasing power over the
next five weeks of $256,053."
So we have been told by a clothing
business which has promised that a small
percentage of the total purchases made by
UBC students at their store outlets would
be donated to the Development Fund.
Our "Totem" yearbook heard the same
story. "If we give money to your university,
then you should do your business with us."
There are loopholes in these arguments,
' and we resent their implications.
First of all, whose university is it? It
does not belong solely to the students who
" happen to be attending classes at any given
time. It does not belong to the professors,
: who happen to be on the payroll — small
. as it is — at any given time. It does not
• belong to the Board of Governors, nor to
..the Senate nor to the administration  nor
Wnhe City  of Vancouver. This   isn't  the
St. Roch Museum and it isn't a private enter-
prize business.
It happens to belong to the people of
this province, with shares and dividends
going to all the people of Canada.
Who benefits by it? Not just the students who earn their degrees here. Not
just the professors who earn their daily
bread here. Not just the contractors who
build our lecture halls, nor the janitors who
sweep them.
The people of Canada and of British
Columbia have been benefiting from the
university ever since its inception. Their
buildings have been designed by university
architects; their bridges, by university engineers; their accounting systems, by commerce graduates; their improved farming
methods, hy university agriculturists; their
better methods of preparing food, by uni
versity home economists; the teaching
methods in their schools, by Education College graduates; the sermons in their
churches, by theological graduates; and their
books, their organizations, and much of their
"way of life" by arts graduates.
Their businesses <h,ave been provided
with staff trained to think. ,
Their homes h#ve been provided with
infinitely better facilities and more sanitary
methods.
Their children have been provided with
vocational and aptitude testing so that they
may more rapidly find their niche in life or
understanding where to put their energies.
The people of the province and particularly of the City of Vancouver have been
raking back dividends from this university
for years. They've been raking back dividends without having given their initial
payment.
The students have not only given their
initial payment, they have paid their debts
for some years to come. They owe no debt
to the province nor to its businessmen. The
benefits they confer on the province and
on its businessmen are far greater than a
few measly purchases at clothing stores.
When they take an interest in the
Development Fund it is because they realize
the great debt society owes to its universities. It is not because they, themselves,
are going to benefit personally bv more-
buildings on campus. In fact the students
now attending the university will have very
little personal use of the new facilities made
Possible by the fund.
Bribing the students is not only ineffective, it is the most lamentable and disgusting business practice possible. To
promise to pay a debt only if those who have
already discharged their own debt provide
the fund, is an inexcusable practice even
among businessmen.
Who j>ays today's university
education?
Here are some of the latest
figures from the Canada Year
Book of 1956 pertaining to the
year 1952-53.
Government Grants, $26,973
millions, 52.9%.
Student Fees, $14,348 millions, 28.1%.
Endowments and Funds,
$2,981  millions, 5.9%.
Other sources, $6,678 millions, 13.1%.
Total Expenditures of University Education, $50,980 million.
98,000 students attended
University that year. This amounts to a total expenditure of
$520 per student, of which
$143 was borne by the student.
The same year the federal
revenue amounted to $4.36 billion; the provinces received
1.46 billion, thus the total revenue of federal and provincial
governments amounted to 5.82
billion dollars.
LESS THAN 1%
The proportion of government grants to universities to
total revenue was 0.47%; in
other words less than one cent
out of every dollar received by
the government in the form of
revenue was spent on university education.
These figures cover only the
cost of education which the
educational institutes have to
bear, But what about such incidentals as room and board,
books, transportation, etc.
During the tuition year, these
costs amount to a^mlnimum of
$800. To this must be added
the cost of living during the
summer while the student has
to make revenue which amounts at least to $250. The
total thus adds up to $1200 per
year, including tuition fees.
It does not matter whether
the student lives at home or
not; if he does, his parents have
to bear the expense.
The   student  therefore   contributes  76%   of the  costs  of
his education.
COSTS BORNE BY STATE
Let's contrast this with the
system the Soviet Union follows. A total of 2,365,000 students are attending universities; approximately 23 times
the number of Canadian students. Since 1956, university
education is free and the costs
are borne by the State.
The total expenditures on
education amounts to 23,023
billion rubles. The total state
revenue is 66,743 billion rubles. Russia then spends over
one third of its revenue on
education.
(These are 1956 figures).
5.6% ON EDUCATION
Canada on the other hand
spends a total of $325 million
on education; the national revenue  amounts  to  5.82  billion
Letters to the Editor
dollars. We spend 5.6% of our
revenue on education. (1953
figures, no later figures are
available). The figures are
somewhat higher (approximately 10%) if municipal taxes
are included for high school
financing.
In other words the Soviet
Union is spending at least
three times as much as Canada
does in relation to the revenue.
But we are worried over not
having enough scientists, engineers,    teachers,    and    other
trained personnel.
LARGE SCALE AID SCHEME
It is conceded that an additional burden upon the Treasury would mean additional
taxation, which should be
avoided wherever possible. On
the other hand it is suggested
that a highly effective way to
turn out more graduates lies
in large scale student aid
scheme.
Is it therefore possible to
help the student financially
and yet not increase taxation?
The writer believes that
these steps would overcome
this dilemma.
1. Elimination of useless
public services.
2. Creation of a National
Student Loan Agency.
TOO MUCH WASTE
We are being told that over
200 million dollars have been
spent on the development of
an aircraft which was obsolete
before it got off the drawing
board. Several hundreds of
millions of dollars have been
spent on the construction of
the Dew Line which was obsolete before completion.
Less flagrant examples of
waste associated mostly with
National Defence are constantly challenged in the House of
Commons. Why is it not possible to channel money before
it is being squandered, into
education where it yields returns, rather than obsolete
equipment? I do not suggest
that defence is unnecessary;
but useless waste in the hallowed name of national defence is not only unnecessary
but repugnant.
Let us remember that only
3 % of the defence expenditure amounts to the total which
is being spent by the government to the universities.
BET UP LOAN AGENCY
Canada has a National Housing Act which sets up a Crown
Corporation as a loan agency
for the purposes of financing
construction of new homes. It
is suggested that a similar
Crown Corporation be established under a Student Loan
Act for the purposes of financing  university  education.
This Corporation could operate as follows:
It would secure its capital
through a bond issue sold to
the public. This would obviate the need of financing
through government revenues.
From this fund, loans would
be made in a similar way as
NHA mortgages are made.   In-
Campus Needs
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
What this campus needs is
people with big ideas and little
ideas. Thc Ship of Grandiose
Ideas will flounder in a sea of
turmoil unless it has the 'little',
operative ideas to give it steerage.
Such an introduction is
prompted by certain articles
appearing in the Ubyssey which
purport to present the "only
solution" to our educational
problems. Mr. Kroll (and collaborator) has big ideas based
on his own limited experience
with our educational problems.
He has built his Ship of Grandiose Ideas. Fine. (I will not
quarrel with his big ideas now,
since their value is beside the
present point). The ideas, however, are not operative in the
sense that one pjrson, or one
teacher, or one agency could
implement them readily. They
are too bijj hkr such a test.
They call for great changes in
what already exists. These
ideas, because of trie demands
they make, are doomed lo be
just ideas — considered and
filed. Perhaps this was Mr.
Kroll's  hope.
However,  let  us assume tn.it
he   bolievt i\   in   his   idea ;   and
was sincerely interested in
having them implemented the
"democratic way". This implies implementation slowly
and in small, often imperceptibly small, stages. Required:
the small ideas which lead towards the goals suggested by
the big ideas, the small ideas
which individuals can put into
action. It is likely, if Mr.
Kroll wrote with this end in
view, that he would be forced
to gain appreciative insight —
(through the gathering of all
facts) — into the problems he
so glibly "solves".
An illustration of the method suggested may elucidate.
The apathy of teachers towards trying to affect a change
in our language is amazing.
They seem happy enough to
drill all idiosyncrasies of the
English language (no doubt because society demands it) into
the next generation — why
bother trying to improve the
efficiency and structure of our
language? This, despite the
fact that language is the main
"tool" of their trade!
Well now, let's say I want
some action. I'm sick and tired
of cough, through, although,
thorough, irregular plurals, sil-
enl letters, variable prone.un-
ciations, etc.    I have a big idea
— our language should be
made completely phonetic and
regular in its rules. The advantages would be tremendous
but the upheaval such an idea
would bring if implemented
over a short period of time is
probably so excessive that the
idea would die the death of
many big ideas. G. B. Shaw
had a plan for renovating our
language — it called for a big
change. As far as I know, no
successful attempts have been
made to implement it.
But enter the little ideas, the
ideas that individuals can implement once they accept them.
For a start, why not suggest
"thru" for "through", "thoro"
for "thorough", and "altho" for
"although".
But stop here, lest you stir
up a hornet's nest, and wait.
Wait for the spellings to become common and accepted—
then, thru this tedious but mir-
" aculous process they will "suddenly" be declared "correct".
Then slip in a few more little
ideas (assuming them to be in
agreement with your big ideas
— "tone" for "phone" (and all
ph's') and "flite" for "flight"
(and all "ight's"). Now stop
and wait for the miraculous
process which will make these
"incorrect" spellings correct.
Need I continue the process?
Need I point out that this is the
very process Russia uses to
achieve her big ideas (in some
cases with expedition not available in a democracy)? This is
the way to action and achievement. More people with big
ideas should use it.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
You are completely right,
Jan De Bruyn. Compared with
a European University, this
campus would be like a desert
to a European. I too miss the
wineshops, bookstores and the
delicatessen shops of the old
country with their abundance
of (the typist apologies to the
writer of this letter, but she
cannot read his writing).
But is this not nostalgia?
Would an attempt to recreate the atmosphere of a European by-street develop intellectuals'.'
Can Canadian loganberry
wine be turned into golden
madeira by selling it in picturesque wineshops?
Your Bohemia needs people
that are trained from childhood in appreciation of literature and conversation. It takes
mature, responsible students
to discuss academic questions.
I am afraid that this campus
where subjects like philosophy
and fine arts are counted for
their value in units more than
for their educational value,
would not change if your idea
was put into practice.
KARE   HERMANRUD,

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
The article "What This Campus Needs" in thc Nov. 15th
issue expresses my sentiments
admirably. Such stuff is what
dreams are made of, but what
dreams! I'll wager many a
reader laid this article down
with dim eye and murmured:
"Why couldn't it have been
like this!" Congratulations to
Jan De Bruyn for hitting the
nail on the head.
While I'm at it, might I ask
what has happened to the CHC

bought a $1.00 ticket','
Yours sincerely,
HAROLD   BALL,

stead of real property a student would pledge his education which he builds.
Loans should be sufficiently
large to be effective and have
long enough terms so that they
do not amount to any hardship.
If the government feels that
additional incentives should be
provided, tax concessions, etc.
can be written into the Taxation Act.
THREE PURPOSES
Such a fund would fulfill
three purposes:
1. It would supply the necessary capital to the student
when needed; that is during
the education.
2. It would enable the student to obtain a higher income, making it easier to repay the loan.
It would eliminate the waste
of time a student presently has
to cope with in the summer in
order to make enough money
for studying.
4. It would obviate the idea
of a free-hand-out which is
generally repugnant to the
Canadian philosophy of life.
Coupled with a study year
of twelve months and a more
intensive high school education, it would be possible to
turn out bachelor in arts in
one and one-half years, engineers in two and a half years
or less. The economy would
benefit from the additional
number of trained individuals
and the graduate will benefit
from adciitional years with a
higher income.
This could all be achieved
with a minimum of state interference. It would obviate the
approach the Soviets use; i.e.,
to put all education under
strict state supervision, and
control. It would give incentives to additional individuals.
And last but not least, it would
turn out more engineers, scientists and other graduates.

THE      UBYSSEY
tag* i
Tie &m
By   BARRIE  HALE
We suppose everyone noticed
ihe announcement in Tuesday's
Ubyssey thai a special course
dealing wiih space travel and
satellites would be included in
ihe Extension Department curriculum next year.
This is praise worthy, we
think; by all means lei us have
a population that can look up
from ihe sidewalk with a fatalistic smirk rather than a twitch
of apprehensive uncertainty.
The training of ihe young, of
ihe unenirenched middle-aged,
in ihe various responses appropriate io ihe inevitable changes
in environment should, we feel,
go even further, moving from
ihe general io ihe particular.
The School of Education, for
instance, seized upon ihe idea
years ago when they began imparting, noi knowledge, bui ihe
proper classroom mannerisms.
This sort of thing should ai once
be taken up by all faculties.        j
The   School     of     Commerce \
should,  for  example,  begin  in- j
sivueiing  their  students  in  the
proper  expressions  io  be worn |
at literary cocktail parties. They
would find the Joycean frown, j
ihe Freudian sniff, ihe Kerning-'
wayan    bellow    invaluable    ai
these ubiquitous functions. i
The average Artsman would, j
we are sure, benefit from a I
course in political altitudes, for
there's nothing like a couple of j
low blows at Social Credit, or
a good, hearty laugh ai ihe Republican Administration io convince those lacking a B.A. ihai
you're noi a fairy or a dileiiani.
As well, a course inculcating ihe
anli - Communist demagogue's
distended veins and hoarse shout
would serve ihe P. E. major well
in asserting thai Communist
athletes just aren't as good as
all those gold medals make out.
One thing is sure. No one
will have any trouble displaying
the proper sartorial attitude
once they have been outfitted
by Doug Hillier. Two locations

By CAROL OSBORNE
Ever wonder what the inside of a radio station looks like2
Well, come on down to UBC Radio studios and iind out.
This organization has studios better than most, and comparable
a> the best of private radio stations  in Vancouver.
The    university   broadcasters
have extended their studios to
include the whole floor of the
south Brock basement. This is
double the space they had last
year.
A newsroom is the latest addition to the layout and the talk
studios and control rooms have
been modernized and finished in
pastel pegboard and acoustic
tile.
UBC Radio is the only campus
organization in Canada that has
the use of a 24-hour a day teletype. This teletype includes news
from Associated Press, Canadian
Press and Reuters News Agency.
Enough news comes off the wire
in one day to fill 200 columns
of newspaper copy.
No hit parade selections (past,
present or future) will be heard
on UBC Radio — except between 10:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.
Thc majority of the music
played in this period is popular
standards.
Between 11:30 and 2:30 jazz
is played. And between 2:30 and
4 p.m.   "very" standard pops
are played — anything from
Mantavanni up.

teen him in the shops ond office* producing far the oertermesi
al people everywhere, whether in peace or in war.
Jutt who it Mr. A-C ? Because the answer to a question Mb
that it complex, it it easy for people to pick up mhtakan
impressions.
For tha talc of tha record, lat't talc Mr. A-C apart and
tee who he reaf/y is.
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.
Managtmtnt it tvtry •mployo from •from/ hey to pr*»tld»M who

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 ps 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 ana
overlapping. Many a man who works in the shop ia
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 ana
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
tiie job alone. Page 4

One Of Best AAU Cage
Teams In US To Play Birds
By BARRY STEWART
University basketball fans may be seeing a preview of the 1958 American AAU champions tonight and Saturday
when Seattle Buchans meet the UBC Thunderbirds. The powerful Seattle squad captured the National AAU title at
Denver in 1956 but had a dismal fourth place finish last season. The Bakers have loaded their ball club in a determined
bid for a second crown. * ~
The Buchan roster reads like a
"Who's Who" of U.S. Intercollegiate basketball. Former Skyline Conference all-star, 'Zip"
Rhoades and Bruno "Mr. Hook"
Boin, were named to several All
American selections.
Scrappy guard Chuck Koon
was named to the 1956 AAU
All-American team and was
later named as alternate on the
U.S. Olympic cage crew. Larry
Beck, former WSC scoring ace
was chosen twice for the Pacific
Coast Conference first team. The
Bakers not only have the stars
but also boast an over all average height of over 6'4'.
OUTSTANDING GUARDS
Playing guard for the talented Baker's will be Chuck Koon,
Ron. Patnoe, Stan Glowaski,
Larry Ramm, and newcomer,
Rudy   Rhoades   from   Montana.
Koon.no stranger to Vancouver fans, is equally deadly from
the field or at the free throw
line. Ramm and Patnoe were ! |
team mates at Washington.
Ramm played bst year in the
Army and was named to the
All-Army team.
"Zip" Rhoades averaged 20
points a game at Montana last
year and received honorable
mention on the "Look" All-
American. Stan Glowaski at 6'4"
and Rhoades (6'3") and Larry
Ramm (8'3") give the guards
lots of height.
The Seattle team has three
tall centers in Bruno Boin (6'8"),
Rod Gibbs (6'8") and George Mc-
Langhlin, a dwarf at 6'6".
George is a former service
player and last year helped
the San Francisco Olympic Club
to second place in the AAU
Tournament. Bruno Boin scored
492 points for Washington in
1957. Rod Gibbs was an Evergreen Conference star with CPS
and like Boin, has a fine shot.
The Bakers added a lot of
frosting to their cake by  sign-

P.S. Loggers — 51
The outclassed UBC team went down to a disappointing
51-6 defeat in their last game of the 1957 football season.
The game was played yester-3
day before less than 2,000 fans
The College of Puget Sound
Loggers successfully combined
a strong running and passing
offensive as they started their
winning drive right from the
opening play.
Within the first three minutes
of play, quarterback Mike Cranston scored the first of the Loggers eight touchdowns.
Jack Henwood played an outstanding game Tor the Birds.
Henwood ran for 70 yards in
16 carries.
Don Vassos and Henwood
combined to display tremendous
ability in both offensive and defensive chores. Quarterbacks
Aiken and Melville played well
At the start of the second quarter, thc Loggers were held back
of the UBC 35 yard line. Then
the Loggers started rolling and
went over the UBC goal line
making the half-time score 25-0.
The    Loggers    continued    to
dominate   the   play   during   th:
; third   quarter,   which   saw   one

31-0 lead.
