Race for the opposition was
close, with Tories edging Socreds by a narrow len votes.
Both parties have ten seats in
the house, but because Tories
have 'il" votes to Social Credit's (137. they will form the opposition.
Tory president Terry O'Brien
flatly refused to consider a coalition opposition.
CCF gained one seat this year,
giving them nine. They polled
a total vote of 531).
Gerry Goujeon's National Reform Party got 119 votes, giving them two seats.
Last came the Communist
LPP party, with 87 votes and
one seat.
Tory president Terry O'Brien
was exultant that his party had
risen from fourth place last
year   io  opposition   this  year.
"The   trend   to  the  Conservative  Party, under  its new leader John Diefenbaker is now em- j
t erging at UBC," O'Brien said.     ]
"We are extremely pleased at!
the gains we have made at UBCi
and confidently expect the trend j
to continue in the Federal elec-|

Lynda Gates echoed this opi-j

Far Frontier College
Rare Quality
Initiative is a rather rare quality around Brock Hall,
center of UBC's anthill system of student government. Ordinary administrative details are tricky and time-consuming
enough for most Councillors; new projects are seldom initiated. A happy exception to this time-honored rule was
this year's Co-Ordinator of Activities, Mr. Ben Trevino,
who displayed an admirable predilection for getting big things
done, not because someone was clamoring to have them done,
nor because it was part of his job to do them. Mr. Trevino
did a great many admirable things this year simply because,
in his opinion, they needed doing.
Two examples spring readily to mind. The first occurred
in October, when Students' Council felt undisposed to bestir itself at the height of ihe Hungarian crisis. Mr. Trevino,
who happened to feel rather strongly on the subject, went
ahead on his own, and organized a Hungarian relief ceremony and fund-raising drive, simply because it should have
been done, and no-one else was doing it. When Council finally realized which way the wind was blowing, they lent the
Drive their belated support.
The other thing, of course, is the Second Great Trek.
It was Mr. Trevino's own idea in the first place, and it was
largely through his personal efforts that the campaign was
conducted so well. Students will know to-morrow how successful were Mr. Trevino's pleadings, when the Speech
from the Throne is presented. Again, no-one asks Trevino to
go ahead; it was something that needed to be done, and so
he ventured to do it.
And so it comes a.s a distinct pleasure to record that
Mr. Trevino's unique abililies have been recognized by the
student body, and that he will serve another term on Council,
this time as AMS President. His rather radical tendency
of initiative should stand him in good stead during the coming session, and should result in pure gain for the students
of UBC.
Before the politicians begin citing figures from Wednesday's Mock Parliament elections to prove that their Party
i.s (a) on the upsurge across our Nation (b) stronger than
ever in the affections of the Canadian people, it should be
pointed out that the results indicate little, and demonstrate
The Liberals lost some ground; Social Credit lost somewhat less; the CCF lost the Opposition spot; and the Conservatives rose from fourth to second place, to form the Opposition. If you happen to be a Conservative, it i.s easy to
become excited about this. If you happen to be of any other
political coloration however, it is just as easy to produce statistics every bit as exciting, and every bit a.s significant.
It's a well-known fact that Provincial voting trends bear
no relation—well, practically none—to Federal voting trends.
Similarly, campus voting trends bear even less relation to
cither Federal or Provincial swings. One of the reasons
for this, we suggest, is that students don't know what they're
voting  for.
When sludenis cast their Mock Parliament ballot, are
they thinking of Terry O'Brian, or Doatie Finlayson, or John
Diefenbaker? Should our criteria be on the campus, ihe
Piovincial or the Federal level? Or i.s it possible to vote on
the  basis  of  general  .split-level  merit?
We don't know, but it is a problem Mock Parliamentarians might profitably explore. There may be ways lo
make these miniature elections much more valuable, by
making  them indicative of larger  trends.
The Labourer - Teacher:
A Worker And A Friend
(Editor's Note: The following
article, reprinted from the Toronto Globe and Mail, is written
by Dtan Bowman of Antioch
College. Yellow Springs, Ohio.
Dean Bowman tells of his experiences as a Frontier College
labourer-teacher in Northern
Ontario. For UBC students interested in sharing the same
experience, a Frontier College
interviewer will be in the Personnel Office on February 11).
Geco Mines Limited lies in
the Thunder Bay District of
Northwest Ontario, 50 miles
off the north shore of Lake Superior. On paper, in the accountant's ledgers and the engineer's blueprints, it is a
mighty industrial project, involving millions of dollars and
hundreds of employees. In physical reality it is but a pitiful
speck in the dreary northern
hills. It is a busy place, saturated with noises appropriate to
heavy industry. By day the
rumble of diesel hoists lowering men and material 1,500
feet into the earth, the staccato
of air hammers, the slamming
blast of exploding dynamite,
the roar of great earth movers
crashing across the land like
high speed mastodons; and by
night the mosquito hum of generators and the miners coming
off shift, crunching snow across
the valley, headlamps burning,
resembling bright and softly
tentacled insects.
I came to Geco in November,
1955. I came as a co-op student from Antioch College,
Yellow Springs. Ohio, where
for many years off-campus
work experience has been a required and very vital portion
of the curriculum. But more
important, I came as a laborer-
teacher for Frontier College,
an entirely Canadian institution. In the cold, slushy drizzle of that November night I
was apprehensive and not a
little confused, for I had the
right to call myself a Frontier
College instructor and I had
been assured the complete support of a highly effective organization, but I had little inkling of where to begin or of
what my function was to be in
a community of 300 campmen.
To everyone, save a few people
of the Geco administrative
staff, I was a complete stranger
—a complete stranger carrying
expensive luggage, a complete
stranger who bore all too much
resemblance   to   a   run-of-the-mill college boy.
The resemblance was shortlived. Even if I wished to do
so, it would be very difficult
to retain the appearances of a
Mid-western college boy while
working on a rock pile, pick
and shovel style, nine hours a
day, six days aweek, or seven,
if you prefer. For the laborer-
teacher the labor part must invariably be met and dealt with
first. In my case it was a matter of hardening, of working
out kinked muscles, of developing callouses over blisters, of
learning to pace my energy
across nine hours of steady
work, and of looking not too
slack alongside experienced
and hardened pick and shovel
Most of them were Italians,
my pick and shovel men, with
a smattering of other West
European nationalities, and a
Canadian or two. The majority of them were new arrivals,
and beyond the humble communicative necessities involved
in digging a ditch, conversation
was difficult.
I became their friend. Such
a simple thing. I was not "da
boss" —close-mouthed, straight
faced, too disinterested to call
a man by name. I was not
preaching to them. I had no
bill of goods. I was their best
friend. I swung the same
picks as they did, used thc
same shovels, walked with the
same tired slouch at the end of
the day, ate with the same ravenous appetite, talked to them
and laughed with them and at
them, expressed interest in all
their problems.
I'm laboring the point, I
know; all I really did was attempt to treat them like human
beings. When I announced my
first classes in basic spoken
English they came to me, these
big, rough, simple, timid men,
sat before me like children and
listened intently while I began
the development of the English
language with the ridiculously
simple statement, "This is I.
that is you.'' If there was any
doubt, any reserve on their
part or mine it went soon afterward when one of them solemnly stated in class, "We wid
you, teacher."
As a  laborer-teacher I  have
found other things to do here.
There's a weekly educational
film program, a ping-pong tournament, a library service, a
series of informative community talks, and perhaps if time
permits, a news sheet. But my
pick and shovel men remain
the most important persons
here. They come to English
class and they come to me as a
friend, as somebody to help
them with their income tax, or
write a letter concerning a lost
case of beer, or talk to the boss
about a better job, or perhaps
just to "shoot the breeze."
Being a laborer-teacher places one in a unique position in
the community, whether the
community be a railroad labor
gang or a full-scale industrial
operation like Geco. It is a
position of leadership,' but not
leadership in the orthodox •
sense, for as a leader the laborer-teacher must remain an
integral member of the group
he leads.
His leadership is not delineated by vocational superiority,
by a name on an office door,
by Ihe power to hire or fire,
punish or praise.
The laborer-teacher's leadership must rest solely on his -
ability to bring his educational
attainments to a level easily
understood by the simple men
of the frontier camps, on a genuine desire to help and understand human beings, and in the
last resort on the sheer force
of his personality and the enthusiasm with which he develops his program.
To attain such leadership is *
not easy, and for me to imply
that I have succeeded in any
degree of completeness would
be pretentious and absurd. But
I have had at least a small
taste of true leadership "and
have gained a realization of its
Along with the personal challenge and obligation which one
assumes as a laborer-teacher,
there lies also a certain obligation to a nation-wide organization: — Frontier College goes
far beyond any one individual.
Campmen all across Canada
have learned to respct and
trust the laborer-teacher —■
respect him as a source of enlightenment, trust him as an
honest friend whose loyalties,,
and asisstanee go voluntarily
to any human being in need
of them.
Letters to the Editor
Editor, The Ubyssey:
If the National Reform is
such a silly party, as claimed
by our editor, Mr. Ross, why
did he bother writing a whole
editorial on it'.' It is a lucky
thing that Mr. Ross is a juvenile, for had he not been, he
might find himself involved in
a law suit for deceitfully, vilely attacking my person and the
National Reform Party. My
suggestion ia tr.e.t Mr. Ross
sticks with beating his drums
and inventing new rhythms,
and that he forgets about polities which i.s not his meat. 1
consider  his  whole editorial  a
smear;   a   game     1     would   not
lower myself to play.
To the best of my knowledge
we have not mailed anyone
anything asking them to join
our movement or to donate money. This i.s a pure false accusation. And in, regard to our
mailing address - since wc are
a University Club, our address
is c o The AMS, Brock Hall.
Every other political club uses
the same address. And in Mr.
Ross' attack upon our policies.
I suppose that the suggestion
of a national Hag and of a national anthem is silly; that our
attack upon monopolies or
Communists   is   silly;   and   that
our suggestion   that   we strengthen  the   U.N.   i.s  also  silly.     I   w
invite    constructive    criticism,
but do not smear, please.   Any
fool can  do thai.

The one-act play is one of the
earliest written by the controversial author of "Baby Doll,"
and is set in one of the seemier
sections of New Orleans, a city
that is apparently rife with
seemy sections, if we are to believe Mr. Williams.
Director Peter Brockington
described the play as dealing
with what occurs in the lives
of a mother and son, a pair of
moral fanatics, when an obscene j
picture falls into the hands of i
the son.
Doris Chilcott will be featured a.s \lme. Duvenet. the mother
and Ed Harrington will be seen ;
as Eloi, the son. Both have been:
active for years in local theatrics, a.s has director Brockington.
"Please don't reveal the ending," rirockington said, "as it is
something of a surprise."
One thing should be stressed,
though. The February lllli pres-:
dilation of "Auto da Fe" is by
Tennessee Williams, who did,
not write "Death of a Salesman."
"Death of a Salesman" is by-
Arthur Williams.

Mr. Hamilton charged that,

Hamilton's statement climaxed a week long "goon campaign" for thc top Council

The NFCUS Travel Department cannot

trips to Europe, Mexico, and the world,
at prices that compare favorably with
commercial or semi-commercial agencies.
It also offers first class charter flights—

September—at prices actually comparable to shipping rate. The Department
is pleased to arrange trips on a group
or individual basis.
1. To any student at any university who organizes a group of twenty or more students
wishing to make a trip to Europe, the Department will provide free passage and accommodation. It will make  all  group arrangements and make reasonable charges.
2. After administration costs have been covered, any surplus remaining on the year's
operations will be distributed as dividends to all NFCUS Travellers.
The NFCUS Travel Department is organized by students for students, and i.s the only
anization ol' its kind in Canada. Sundry other  organizations   carry   "university"   and
"educational" in their titles, but many are commercial organizations, and all have higher

Pictured above during a C.B.C. radio interview on site
are two Engineers vitally concerned with this project:
Dr. P. L. Pratley, (Ctntre) 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. /
&uiJ&t a fii&/ies wtik 7)otnmunt V/tufye,
