Flag Hoisted
EDMONTON, (CUP) ~- The
Union Jack in front of the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium was replaced today with a
student-designed flag. The move
is part of the University of Alberta's contribution to •'Operation Ifall'mast."
Four University of Alberta

of the Auditorium in the early
hours, hauled down the Union
Jack, and replaced it wiih a
new flag.
The changing ot lhe flags is

CECIL — THE PROBLEM CHILD. Cecil was exhibited at the College of Education Open
House display along with an analysis of hi.s problems and a suggested solution for the
teacher to follow. The problem with Cecil is that he prefers to read or play alone. He
does not disturb the class and i.s not a discipline problem (according to the analysis)
but he doesn't contribute to class activities. The solution is to suggest to the parents that
they permit Cecil to join an organization where he can participate in a group. Cecil likes
to read' and play alone.

Death  Of An  Egghead
Some of them are immersed in basic
research in the Metallurgical Labs of the
Boulevard; some build dream-homes around
a slanting roof designed to withstand weather and strain, in the huts marked "Architecture;" some play naughts and crosses
Vt'ith] the Digital Computer; some attempt to
detect lies; some play with model tracks of
the PGE; some climb the sides of Libraries.
They do the oddest things, these UBC
students.
But the oddest of all are those who try
to solve the problems of school children.
,f.       tf.       if.
There were several rag-doll dummies of
school children in the display. They looked
a pretty normal bunch; some with pig-tails,
some with big heads, all except one in
clothes normally seen in elementary classrooms — sweaters and skirts or slacks. The
one wore a suit, and he alone wore glasses.
He was a problem child — so the analysis in the School of Education Classroom
said. An only child with an over-protective
mother, very interested in music, he preferred to read or play alone, He did not
disturb the class and was not a discipline
problem. But dammit it all, he liked to
play and read alone.
His name was Cecil and he wore glasses.
He was a problem. «
The College of Education had a solution,
though. A neat nifty little solution jailor-
made for the occasion. All that Cecil needed
was an organization! That's  the cure .  .  .
according to the Solution tacked on the
board above the dummy of Egghead Cecil:
just speak to the parents, show them how
poor Cecil has been negected, and get them
to encourage him to join an organization;
and then give him responsibilities in class
projects.
if* if. if.
The Scene is the teacher with Cecil:
Teacher: "Cecil, are you reading alone
again? How naughty of you. You know
you can't be a happy, contributing member
of the community if you don't start showing
a need for other people. How dare you be
happy reading by yourself? Come now, be
normal.
Cecil: "Am I unhappy?"
Teacher: "Of course you are. Why don't
you join something? Everybody else joins
things . . .
tf        #        tf
So Cecil starts to join; like other children trying so hard to emulate the actions
of their teachers and parents, he becomes an
exhibitionist when there i.s an audience,
he is always organized, he is in the middle
when there are three, he doesn't have time
anymore (and besides he doesn't want to
be ridiculed) to read or sit alone thinkin".
tf        tf        tf
And thus society loses a perfectly good
and far too rare Egghead.
The College scores another win; the
organization man is born.
Phenomenon  In Brock Hall
— And Other Pleasantries
Those who don't understand metallurgical processes, who can't design slanting roofs, are disinterested in mathematical
intricacies -■- end up in Brock Hall.
Some of them manage to get named on
the Hierarchy Chart.
Most of ihem do a reasonably efficient and
effective Job in whatever capacity they act.
Most members of these multiple committees
that inevitably get set up in bureaucratic
atmospheres, manage lo get through the
year of red-tape and bombast with no detrimental effects on anyone other than themselves.
They are reasonably efficient and effective. That means they can organize teas
and luncheons, singing groups and committees; type out public relation notices and
bother the office manager for requisition
slips. They worry about student apathy and
call for new committees to look into the
problems that arise because there are already  too  many  committees,
For their four years al university, they
have membership cards as souvenirs.
It is rather amazing that once in awhile
a leader emerges from the mess; how he
comes to Brock Hall, how he slips through
the endless committees and retains a degree
of mental stability a.s well a.s individuality,
i.s a mystery, But once in awhile such a
phenomenon, occurs.
This year Ihe phenomenon is Ben
Trevino.
He can organize, but he doesn'l let this
slop htm from using his intelligence, showing discretion, courage and insight. He is
persuasive, but he also has humility. Instead
of offering answers lo all questions, he has
brought forih lhe queslions in lhe first
place: often alone he has forced his council
to   think   now   and   then.
Whal is most commendable is thai when
he forces his council lo think, lhe subject
is more than lhe pel.lv commillee problems
of Brock Hall.
Lasl year he made a Council think aboiil
Ihe Hungarian  Rebellion.
He made a whole sludenl body Ihink
about the univeruty, its role in sociely and
the need lor money lo liiuin.ee higher education.
This .vear he asked hm thought on tho
Operating Kspeuse-. ol the Universal y;
thought which normally is relegated n, the
Board ol t lovernoi's, not a mailer hm sludenl concern But lVlr. Tn vine fell limit
studenls should be concerned with the prob
lems of iheir university and the linancial
status ol their professors.
The finest tribute lo his powers came
with the Blitz. The response showed that
students, apathetic only when the issues are
not worth time and thought, are keenly
interested in thc larger issues concerning
higher education. A leader had asked them
to take a look at the situation, and, respecting that leader, they have looked, and are
acting.
So it is not surprising that the Students'
Council, led by Mr. Trevino, has thought
about tho current fiscal conditions of the
universily and directed its president to
compose a brief for the Board of Governors.
Mr. Trevino's brief appears on this pa^'e
today as presented to the Board last night.
While congratulations are being handed
out (they so seldom are, on this page), wij
may as well pat the backs of a few others
whose work has contributed something to
the university and the students.

Students' Brief To
Board Of Governors
To the members of the Board
of Governors:
Ladies and Gentlemen:
This brief is presented by
the representatives of the UBC
student body because we are
aware of the issues facing thc
Board and the decisions which
you will be called up on to
make.
We should first like to set
out the facts as we know them.
We do this for two reasons;
first because there has been no
definite statement from the
Board or the Administration
of the University regarding the
adequacy of the operating
grant given to this University
by the provincial government;
secondly because of differing
reports of the press as to the
adequacy of the grant.
One report appeared in The
Vancouver Sun saying that
UBC was quite happy with the
provincial grant, On the heels
of this report came the statement by the Faculty Association, which also appeared in
the press, stating the provincial grant as one million dollars short.
As we understand it the
Board of Governors requested
from the provincial government an increase of $1,400,000
over last year's operating
grant. The university has received an increase an increase
of $400,000 over last year's
grant, of which $50,000 is allocated for th* College of Education. We believe this increase allows little or no room
for additional staff — either
to lower the existing ratio of
students to faculty or to add
pected increase in enrollment
staff to accommodate an ex-
of 1,000 students in the 1958-
59 session.
If you, as members of thc
Board of Governors, are to exercise the leadership expected
of individuals comprising such
a Board, you must then find
a solution to the immediate
problem of financing the university's current operations
while still maintaining the tradition of academic competence
which this university has evolved in its relatively short history.
Overriding all these considerations, however, you a.s members of the Board of Governors function a.s the lending
educators in this province, and
must keep in mind the long-
term prospects of Education in
British Columbia and in Canada.
There appear to be several
possibilities. The primary possibility is to request a supplementary grant from the provincial government in the sum
of $1,000,000, accompanying
such a request with the statement that the original submission to the Government was
for the minimum requirements
of thc University.
Thc request for the supplementary grant should be accompanied also with a clear
and straightforward statement
to the press as to the status of
the university's operating finances. Education is becoming
an area of increasing public
concern. Before the public
can be aware of the issues and
exercise intelligent judgment,
they must possess information
that lays the picture before
thc. Only then can they judge
whom they should praise and
whom they should criticize.
Should  the  government  refuse   a   supplementary     grant
the  Board  of Governors  will
be  faced   with   three   alternatives,  all  of  which  would  be
detrimental to this University's
purpose and function.
i) The number of students enrolled    at    the University
may be "pegged".
ii) The University can remain
status quo with an inevitable lowering of academic
standards and depreciation
of the degrees granted by
this Institution,
iii) Student tuition fees may be
raised by an amount sufficient to meet the requirements   of   increased   staff,
raising of faculty  salaries,
and   higher   operating   ex-'
penses as capital construction is accomplished.
It seems impossible to maintain this university in the status quo without lowering academic standards.    A lowering
of  academic  standards  would
inevitably result in the loss of
many of our  best  staff  members who would refuse to make
a mockery of higher education.
A UBC degree would lose its
value and would no longer attract the type of student who
seeks a sound education.    Thc
retention of thc status quo is
a  refusal to face the  problem
and a  mere  postponing  of its
solution.
Pegging enrollment in the
1958-59 session would at least
allow for increases in staff
salaries and perhaps some additions lo lhe university staff.
It would lead to a raising of
standards through academic
competition for entrance to
university. This raising of
standards would in a very
short lime reach back into the
educational system as High
Schools realized a studenls'
entrance1 to university depended on the quality of his previous training. This alternative
has one drawback: this universily has always held its doors
open for those studenls who
have graduated from accredited High Schools. Pegging enrollment then would mean a
reversal, at least temporarily,
of past university policy.
The third alternative is thc
raising of tuition fees. This is
the method that has been used
in several other provinces to
raise sufficient money for university  operating budgets.
Higher fees make the prime
consideration for university
entrance the students' financial standing. This alternative
is perhaps the most attractive
because it follows the path of
least resistance.
The adoption of this alternative, however, would increase
the criticism of this university
as "a rich man's university"
and the criticism would have
more validity than it now enjoys. This alternative has the
very great drawback of negating the progress that has been
made in extending thc benefits of higher education to as
broad a base of Canadians as
possible. Leaders in the field
of education have shown concern that only 4% of those
who started the first grade in
Canadian public schools ever
graduated from university!
The emphasis by educators
has been towards the concept
of higher education as a right
belonging to all those with the
intellectual capacity to benefit
from it, instead of a privilege
to be extended to those who
can pay for it. There is a
chance great gains can be made
in the field of increased scholarships and bursaries within
the next few years. However,
these gains would be completely off-set if tuition fees were
to rise.
The raising of fees is a completely regressive step and
should be pursued only as a
last resort.
The government of British
Columbia is, at present, making representations to the federal government for an increased federal contribution to
higher education. The Alma
Mater Society requests the
Board of Governors in the

There are several, constitutional hurdles that appear to

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Open House
Editor, Thc Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
It has been our pleasure in
the past few clays to receive
many warm congratulations
on lhc success of OPEN
HOUSE   1958.
We would like to pass along
these compliments, together
with our thanks to the estimated 2,000 faculty and studenls
who took an active pari in
making preparations for the
public's visit to the campus
and who welcomed and entertained them while they were
here,
We would like lo particularly thank those who worked
on the facully, school and de-
parlmenial exhibits and lhe
club displays; the information
and traffic guides, participating special events, babysitters,
and even tho weatherman
(who really put us in business')
The Cominitl.ee was given
splendid co-operation from
everyone, and we are most
grateful for having had our
job   of   coordination   made   so
pleasant and rewarding.
Yours very truly,

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
I should like, through your
newspaper, to congratulate
Kit "Dad" Whitlen for the fine
job he did on Tuesday's paper,
It was by far the best yet, far
better than lasl. year's. To fie
sure, some of the credit must
go to the absence of some rather detrimental influences.
For his efforts, I Ihink Mr.
Whitlen should bo considered
for PRO (Panty-Uaid-Organi-

One of my friends al UBC

This note is to compliment
lhe Engineering Undergraduate Sociely on the originality
and sensationalism of their
supplement to your paper.
Certainly it is not often that
one can gain so much downright pleasure and so many
genuine laughs from a mere
six pages of printed mailer.
Again, I say "well done, Engineers of distant UBC!"

See address by iDr. E. F.
Scheffield, Director of Education Division, of the Dominion
Eureau of Statistics wherein it
was revealed that in Canada
only 7.2% of students of University age do go on to study
there.
To examine the effect tuition fees have on the social
structure of a university campus, see the study "The Veteran at Varsity" published by
the University of Toronto Advisory Committee on Ex-Service Students. The study reveals that whereas only 20%
of university student population come from the homes of
industrial workers, 32% of the
veterans came from such
homes, and whereas even as
much as 55% of the normal
student population come from
professional, managerial and
business homes, only 36% of
thc enrolled veterans came
from such homes.
A Survey taken in February,
1950, by the Canadian Manufacturers' Association indicated that only 4% of those who
start the first grade in Canadian public schools ever graduate from University. It also
indicated that as many as 54%
of those who abandon education at anv stage do so for financial reasons. Similarly, a
high school survey at Jarvis
Collegiate in downtown Tiv-
onto in 1954 showed lhal 38%
of those who qualified to go
on lo University and wished
to do so could not for financial
reasons.
A further survey taken two
years ago by the provincial
Scholarship Committee at the
University of British' Columbia
based on the information gathered at nine high schools in
that province revealed that
48% of those not intending to
go on lo University gave financial inability as the reason.
Of those intending to go on,
19% would apply for financial
aid.
Engineers supported the WUS
seal on Council, Ihey gave the
women no opportunity to hear
lhe annual reports given by
their representatives.
The Engineers' continuous
deafening racket drowned the
voices of every woman who
attempted to speak throughout
the whole of the noon hour.
Bui perhaps one cannot
blame those sheep for putting
firecrackers in garbage cans,

U of AA Opens
Dental School
The new Faculty of Dentistry
at the Universily of Manitoba
will receive its first students in
September, 1958. They have
indicated that they would be
pleased to have applications
from students at the University
of British Columbia.
Copies of the Calendar of the
Faculty of Dentistry, Univer- (
sity of Manitoba and Application Forms «for entry are available through Dr. James M. Mather, Professor, Department of
Public Health, Faculty of Medicine, Room 300, Wesbrook Bldg.,
Phone AL. 4446.
Applications must be in the
hands of the Registrar of the
University of Manitoba not later
than April 30, 1958.
"1 thought it was very successful. I enjoyed it very
much," said June Young, a third
year Chemical Engineering student, when questioned regarding Open House.
A poll conducted Monday
showed that most students
agreed with June's remark,
Everyone expressed approval
of the scheme as a builder of
"public relations," and several
related this increased public
knowledge and approval to the
future success of the Development Fund Drive.
In the words of John Clib-
bett, first year Engineering,
"They (the public) know what
they're donating to anyway.'"
This opinion was corroborated
by a nameless first year Nursing
student who said "To an ordinary person coming out, the University looks so large." She
went on to say: "Open House
costs the University quite a lot
of money, but they'll probably
get it back in the long run."
Cliff Shaw, Arts III, who
helped to guide approximately
3,000 people through the Slavonic Circle display during a two-
■ hour period Saturday night,
commended Open House as a
"method of developing public
relations" and Ameans for parents to initiate their children."
He noted a great number of
children in the ten to fourteen
year age group.
Shaw attributed the success
of the Slavonic Circle display
to the great number of immigrants who attended Open
House. "Most interest was
shown toward books, particularly  those regarding Slavic  liter
ature
said.
and   Russian   Opera,"   he
Most people were struck by
the variety of displays and
their range ol' appeal. Said Katharine Picha, from the Grad
Course in Education. "We could
not cover the whole thing in
four and a half hours!"
Gary Brown, fourth year Engineering, on duty in the Mechanical Lab, noticed that most
interest was drawn by "displays
directly related to people's
household, or to their personal
lives." He added, "People all
seemed very interested in the
displays and the type of work
being done by the students."
Dick Schulcr, Arts II, felt that
there was "tremendous variety"
but that some departments had
"hardly anything new." Many
people weren't able lo see everything they were interested in
because "they just couldn't
make it."
Stationed in the Anthropology Museum from five on Friday until closing time on Saturday, Mary Anne Brandis, Arts
II, said lhat about 5,000 people
flocked through, and that they
asked questions and seemed to
be interested.

Ashbaugh, swimming the
breastroke, teamed up with Tim
Lewis (backstroke), Bruce
Cowie (Butterfly) and Pete Pellatt (freestyle) to chop off 9.8
seconds of the old 400-yard medley relay record of 5:02. To complete his day, versitile Les picked up second place points in the
200-yard butterfly while Cowie
finished fourth.
Bob Bagshaw also had himself a pretty fair afternoon by
winning the 100-yard butterfly

Again Bruce Cowie swam to a

Close Lose
For Varsity
In a hard fought, wide open
grasshockey game on Saturday
Brit managed to score in the
final ten minutes of play to defeat Varsity 1-0.
Varsity missed their scoring
opportunities in the last five
minutes of the first half.
Anne Wood of the Brit team,
who played for Varsity last year,
scored the lone point.
Outstanding players on thc
Varsity team were right halfback Joanna Farmer and fullbacks Penny Pollock and Sher-
rill McBean.
In a second match over the
weekend UBC won by default,
when their opponents, ex-Tech,
could   not  provide  a  goalie  for
their first season, that the inclusion of rugby in an Evergreen Conference program is
visualized in the near future.
UBC's team was a composite
squad made up of players on
the Tomahawk, Brave and Redskin teams. They played under
the name of the Second Division
All-Stars and showed very well
in their first game as a complete
unit.
Stu Smith led the UBC scoring with three fine penalty goals.
Smith was particularly impressive in a first half kick from
45 yards out.
Peter Mclntyre scored thc
only try of the afternoon as
he took a blind side pass from
Pat McGaffin.
CANADIAN  BOY
Leading the Western' attack
was a Canadian boy Don Burgess. Burgess also accounted for
all the losers' scoring with a penalty goal in the first half.
Ron Longstaffe, Open House
chairman, who took the afternoon off from his administrative chores, turned in a thrilling
performance.
In the second game of the

from the Varsity's second division teams, beat Victoria's James

UBC Ahead
In Series
By  PETER  IRVINE
The UBC Thunderbird Rugby
XV ended the first half of the
World Cup series in extremely
good shape.
Although their record is one
win and one loss, they hold a six
point advantage over thc Golden
Bears from Berkeley. Only
once, in thc history of the Cup,
have the Bruins come back from
such a deficit to win the trophy.
The first game, played last
Thursday, saw the Birds lose
3 to 6,
Tlu- Varsity team jumped into an early 3-0 lead in the first
half as wing-forward Mike
Chambers was johnny-on-the-
spot to capitalize on a California
miss-kick which went behind
thoir line. His try was unconverted.
The Bruins bounced right
back and before the half ended
went into a 8-3 lead on tries by
Steve Glogola and Tom Rogers
and a convert by Tom Trutner.
The UBC team narrowed the
count with the only score of the
second half, when Gerry McGavin booted a beautiful 43-yd.
penalty goal. However, they
were unable to crack the Bruin's
cover defense and had to settle
for the 8-6 score.
SECOND GAME
In Saturday's game, however,
the worm turned to a count of
17-9.
The first half of the game was
very close, ending at six all.
McGavin's educated toe on a
30-yd. penalty kick and Paddy
Sloan's great faking for a try
registered UBC's points.
In the second frame, the Birds
broke the game wide open.
McGavin kicked two more
penalty goals and added the
convert on Dave Milne's try.
The big forward picked up a
40-yd. cross"-kick    and    boomed
ing for UBC in the victory when j for 20 yards to the goal line.
he gathered 13, three more than | California added three more
team-mate Barry Drummond.     j points to finish its count.
