Ubyssey In Danger Of Becoming
An  Ivory Tower, Says Meekison
By MARY WILKINS
Elections Reporter
The Ubyssey was the subject of controversy at the AMS
elections speeches Monday.
Open House
Needs Help
One hundred male volunteers
arc needed to direct traffic during Open House.
Five hundred women are also
needed as guides during Open
House.
Four girls are needed as
commentators on thc Campus
Bus  Tour  during  Open   House.
Forms for those interested in
volunteering for traffic or guide
positions are requested to fill
out a form in the Open House
office. Forms should be returned to Box 13,5 in the AMS.
LOOK TO FUTURE
In his main speech, Chuck
Connaghan stressed the importance of looking to the future.

The Ubyssey was the subject
of controversy at the AMS election speeches Monday.
Pete Meekison, nominee for
AMS president answering a
question
by Mrs.
in-chief of The Ubyssey, said
the editorial policy of the paper
should be confined to the editorial page: that the Publications
should not hold a club over
Council by threatening to resign,
if ecliotrial policy were discussed, and that the Publications
Board by "screaming Ivory
Tower at the Council, became
an Ivory Tower itself,"
Jack Giles .said he believed the
paper, in acting as a critic of
Council, should be free of Council control.
Meekison had expressed the
view that The Ubyssey was failing in giving adequate coverage
in publicizing university activities.
Symposium
5 Academic
Proposes
Changes
Five resolutions were passed at the Academic Symposium
last weekend. The resolutions will be forwarded to all parties
and committees involved, and an attempt to carry them out
will be made by Academic Symposium Commiltee and delegates.
The resolutions as accepted al
the final plenary session were:
• to design and offer a science
course especially for pure Arts
students.
• lo commend a policy of decreasing tho number of lectures
while increasing thc number of
seminars with a possible decrease in the number of class
hours for each student.
• to re-mold the bookstore sis
a bookstore rather than as a
textbook supply centre; the
books to he displayed for sludenl   browsing.
• to give consideration lo a
policy of assigning freshmen lo
a group of staff members acting
as facully rnnlaets for mil ial assistance on  the campus.
The resoluti'-ms came  forward
seminar-type    discussions
fU-v
which began Saturday morning
and continued through the weekend. Each slud-nt delegate attended  live discussion groups.
Topics discussed included
Teaching Methods, Academic
Standards, New Courses of
Study, Curriculum tor the Specializing sludenl, and Student
Attitude toward Courses and
Faculty.
Although many ideas did not
reach the resolution stage, the
questions of a balanced curriculum, higher standards in both
high school and University, criteria for selecting new courses
of studv and for the setting up
of new chairs or schools, and
means for overcoming the defects of "canned notes" were
discussed and may hv- sided upon  informal Iv   in  future.
He also suggested that NFCUS
could be put to greater use in
the fields of income tax exemptions and unemployment insurance.
Giles stressed need for greater
student participation in AMS activities.
He noted that at present many
students are getting little more
than a $6 newspaper for their
$10 AMS fee.
Meekison also advocated the
necessity of drawing more students into activities, and said
much could be done "by building through Frosh Council."
Bruce McColl, nominee for
First Member, stated the importance of allowing first and
second year students to have
more  say  in  student  activities.
Larry Burr also a candidate
for First Member, said he felt
that there is a great need to
expand Homecoming; to enlarge
the food services, and to get
more participation from junior
students.
Bob Ward, running for First
Member, stressed the importance
of making Homecoming, which
is one of the First Member's
main responsibilities, a financial
success, and suggested that this
could not be aided by importing "mediocre entertainment."
Pete Haskins said the USC
would play an increasingly
greater part as the university
expands,
Jack McLean declared that
much of the AMS budget surplus should be used in USC
activities,
Tiie third nominee for USC,
Rod Dobell. announced yesterday, thai lie had withdrawn from
Ihe election, due to circumstances
which had arisen over the weekend.
UBC Radio announced yesterday thai Radio station CKWX is
going to give comprehensive
coverage to the election results.
University Post
Calls It Quits
MONTREAL (CUP) — The
Canadian University Post, a biweekly national newspaper
aimed al the Canadian college
student, has folded after 16
months of publication.
The newspaper was founded
as a commercial venture in September 1956, in order to fill a
glaring lack in Canada — a national student newspaper.
Farm Co-Op
Donates To
UBC Fund
A contribution of $20,000 by
the Surrey Co-operative Association to thc UBC Development
Fund, was termed a
for the entire agricultural industry," when announced today
by Paul E. Cooper, chairman of
the campaign.
"This gift will give a tremendous lift to our campaign in the
Fraser Valley and I am confident now that the chairman in
the area can look forward to
meeting their objectives," stated
Cooper.

Fools Announcer
A downtown radio announcer received a shock Wednesday when he announced over
his "interpretation of the
news" series that a record
budget would appear from
Victoria.
He gleaned his information
from a "reliable source" who
wired him the story before
the budget was released on
Friday. Acting on the information, he made sweeping
predictions regarding the largesse of the Government.
When the budget'had been
released, he saw his error.
Immediately after the release a long distance phone
call came in from Victoria.
Expecting the caller to be his
mis-informant, he picked up
lhe receiver  and shouted:
"You son of a ... I thought
you said it would be a record
budgol!"
The answer: "No, no . . .
I said it would be a realistic
budget."
The caller was Premier
Bennett.
"Inner Place" and "Painting
pace-setter | Ful1 Grown", were scratched by
a key or dull pencil, stripping
the pigment off and stretching
the canvas.
It has been established that
the damage was done some time
between 7.15 Sunday evening
and Monday morning.
The police have no leads to
work on, but are compiling a
list of people who were in Brock
Mall over the weekend.
Mr. Ian McNairn, Curator of
the Art Gallery, stated that he
]fif§0\f was getting advice to see whe-
"fgwm ther the paintings could be restored locally.
He said, "It is hard to estimate the value in dollars and
cents — perhaps $250.
Mr. McNairn did not believe
the act was straight vandalism.
He believes that, "whoever did
it picked out certain ones most
difficult to understand, the most
annoying to him. Abstract
paintings sometimes antagonize
people who perhaps do not have
the intelligence to understand
them."
Council Moves To
Abolish Womens Rep.
Students' Council moved last night to eliminate one of
the positions on it. The position is that of representative of
the Women's Undergraduate Society.
The   motion   will   be   placed* —
before the general meeting next
month for the approval of the
student body.
The Council voted 8-3 with
one absention to adopt the motion presented by Neil Merrick,
chairman of the Undergraduate
Societies Committee. The motion
provides for WUS losing its representation on Council and becoming a member of the USC.
Phil Keeber, men's athletic
representative, seconded the motion.
It had been originally presented in the USC by Arts representative Jim MacFarlane. The
USC had adopted it by a weighted vote of 6,357 to 1,754, with
only the faculties of law, pharmacy, engineering and nursing
voting against it.
BONNER SPEECH
AGAIN TODAY
Attorney - General Robert
Bonner will speak again on
campus Tuesday noon-hour.
Radio Society has announced
that the taped recording of
Mr. Bonner's speech given
here last week, will be replayed over the Campus network piped into Brock Hall.
Radsoc President Bill Bal-
lentyne said he intended to
replay the records as "a public service to students."
Council took note of the fact
that the all-female faculty of
home economics and the predominantly female faculty of
education had favored the removal of WUS from Council.
ATROCIOUS
Ben Trevino termed the disfiguring "atrocious," and will
ask council to offer a reward of
at least $100 for information
leading to the apprehension of
the person.
Dr. Eero Signori of the psychology department, when asked for explanation of the act,
said, "there are many reasons
why this could happen. It could
be the result of hostility against
something else — lack of space
in the Library, for instance.
Maybe he saw the paintings and
said to himself, "they could
have bought chairs with that
money." In any case, there Is
no doubt that the student, who
did it is in need of psychotherapy."   •

LETTERS TO THE    EDITOR
Hypocrites Or Leaders?
The role of the university, according to
Academic Syfnposium delegates, is to be
the "moral conscience of the community."
In other words university students
should be aware of and concerned with
the events of their time and their society,
and, through awareness, offer intellectual
and moral leadership to that society.
This has been expressed by students for
countless ages. It was expressed on campus
just last week when students signed a petition and pressured an Attorney-General
into signing a petition to maintain the
Borstal Home.
They did this because they believed that
the home should and must exist in its present form if it is to provide the social function of rehabilitating wayward youth.
What about Essondale, then? Do students believe that the 293 cut-down in staff
will decrease the social functions of a
mental rehabilitation centre? What about
the cut-downs in training facilities for
psychiatric nurses? Will this have a detrimental effect on society?
And what about the cut-downs in Woodlands School, in Marpole Infirmary,, in
homes, in mutiple social service centres? All
prisons, in other nursing staffs, in old-age
these cut-downs have occured with the
budget as handed down from Victoria this
weekend.
Last year students trekked to Victoria
to petition for more money to higher education. They canvassed homes and will go
on canvassing homes even if they personally
will not benefit by the advantages that a
financially stable university can offer. They
did this and are doin£ it because its functions in a social community.
If they are, as they say they are, the
moral conscience or the community, then
they cannot confine their conscience-appeasements to the single cause in which
they are most interested. Education is certainly no small cause. But it is not the only
cause that is important to society, nor can
it stand alone. A good education system is
supported on all levels by a solid social
welfare program.
If the students honestly feel that they
have a responsibility to act as the moral
conscience of this community, and if they
are willing to pay more than verbal respect
for their roles as intellectual and moral
leaders, are the willing to act on their
beliefs?
Would they, in short, be willing to petition in Victoria for the cause of social welfare? Would they agree that, assuming
social welfare to be a genuine moral cause
in this generation, they have a responsibility
to organize, leave their personal studies for
one day, pay for a plane ticket and go
together to tell the Cabinet and the people
of the province what they think of a backward social welfare program?
If they don't do this, they are offering
no leadership of a concrete type. If they
can go on talking about moral leadership yet
ignore this whole area, they are hypocritical.
Are they ready — and willing?
GUEST EDITORIAL: By Ben Trevino
EDITOR'S NOTE — The following
views are those of the writer, not
necessarily those of the student
body nor the Council which he is
the president.
The Bonner talk is the most hotly debated topic on campus at the moment. Mr.
Mel Smith has threatened to refrain from
inviting any more distinguished Socreds
from appearing on the campus. Others are
saying the heckling of the A.G. was stupid,
vicious, and showed immaturity. Still
others are worried lest Mr. Bonner weild
his influence and retaliate by causing less
money to be granted to UBC.
All these criticisms need examining,
because they tell something of the attitude
of the person who utters them.
Mr. Smith's statements have contained
thinly-veiled threats about governmental
retaliation, and the prospect of this is real
enough in many minds to cause people to
object to the heckling on this ground.
Does either attitude speak well for
either the government or the critic? Mr.
Smith implies that the action of 500 students will cause the government to retaliate.
Any government that resorts to this kind
of action deserves every criticism it gets.
Any person that would have political
speakers treated with kid gloves because
of this fear of retaliation through the budget
throws the freedom to criticize to the winds
and submits himself to the whims of men!
who equate the concept of government with
the business of operating a successful hardware store.
Was the heckling stupid? Mr. Bonner,
who has been under severe criticism from
many quarters and caused the defection of
an MLA (so far) was the first Socred
speaker to appear on campus in almost
two years.
The recent events in both federal and
provincial arenas have made politics a warm
(and even polite)  subject of conversation.
In the face of this, Mr. Bonner chose
as his topic a rather nebulous discussion
of Canada's role in international affairs.
Faced with an audience -more concerned
with B*C. immediate problems, Mr. Bonner
prolonged his speech to the point of insulting the intelligence of every member
of his audience.
Mr. Bonner ranged from the Oregon
Treaty of 1846 to the DEW line. Rather than
face the question period, Mr. Bonner retreated again, this time all the way back
to the Franco-Prussian war.
Under these circumstances, the heckling he received was well-deserved. Students were more than patient with him.
Mr, Smith's statement that no more requests
will go forward from the Social Credit
Club for speakers representing his party
speaks ill of both Mr. Smith and Social
Credit.
Students must continue to reserve for
themselves the right to question and criticize, regardless of the consequences it may
have. If we feel the danger of retaliation,
the right becomes a duty. Mr. Bonner
sought to escape questions. Anyone who
listened to and analyzed his speech will
have to admit this (there is a partial tape-
recording of the speech which is due for
airing).
It must have been an ordeal for Mr.
Bonner to stand before that audience, and
as an individual we can sympathize with
him. But as a representative of the provincial government in a period of political
excitement, Mr, Bonner's padding to prolong his speech and avoid questions acted
as a spur to the heckling. It could not
have been otherwise in climate of critical
examination by the active minds of university students.
Mr. Bonner either underestimated the
political morality of university students, or
underestimated their intelligence. Either
way, and retaliation or no retaliation, the
students had their say.
Which was as it should be,
One Night Blltl: By Chuck Connaghan, Chairman Student Bliti
The reasons for the UBC Development
Fund Blitz Drive are common knowledge.
To date Just over five million dollars has
been donated — this brings the total fund
to approximately 69 per cent of ©ur minimum objective of .$7,500,000, Of the amount
which has been given so far, students presently enrolled at UBC have donated $150,-
000, Only 1,200 other persons have given to
the fund.
Accordingly the One Night Blitz has
been organized to give the citizens of Greater Vancouver an opportunity to donate to
their university.
As students we are closer than anyone
else to the inadequacies of our facilities
and the insufficiencies in our present physical plant, For this reason we can contribute still more to the drive by letting the
people of Vancouver know at first hand the
problems which beset our university.
Many of you possibly feel that we have
done enough, and financially this is certainly  Irma   lln.vove",  we,  the studenls,  of
the university have gained more and will
continue to gain more, from UBC than
will the greater majority of British Columbians. Therefore, it stands to reason that we
should also do more to encourage the success and the expansion of our university by
giving in every way.
The little extra that we will be expected
to do on Monday, Feb. 17 will amount to
giving up at the most, three hours of our
study time. At that time it is hoped that
we will be able to show the entire province,
in a more tangible way than money, that
each student is willing to help UBC. It, is anticipated that 2,000 students will invade
Vancouver, the students giving information
about the university in exchange for much
needed  money.
After all, far more than 1,200 people
the university have gained more and will
In fact it is no exaggeration to say that
everyone benefits from UBC.
Sign uj) to do your part in trying to
get everyone to donate to UBC.
Bonner Fiasco  ,
Editor, The Ubyssey,,
Dear Madam:
The recent Bonner fiasco has
served to emphasize a point
that has been annoying me for
some time. The noon hour
Filibuster, or "Censorship by
time". Mr. Bonner is an experienced politician, he planned
his battle well; take up most
■ of the time with a speech, set
a time limit, and there won't
be much opportunity for the
audience to ask questions. This
is an old political trick and the
sheep in the audience ably assisted him by taking up even
more time with their childish
heckling.
But what gets me is the accidental censorship of discussion
in the noon hour debates. I
have lost count of the discussions I have attended that have
ended prematurelyt with the
words: "Well I'm sorry but we
seem to have run out of time."
And in every case it was simply due to lack of organization.
There are many clubs on
campus that sponsor noon hour
talks, and the quality of th§
speakers is usually very high
indeed, but why, oh why? do
they waste it all by bad organization. Look what happens.
A student choses the talk he
will attend, thus showing he is
interested in the subject. He
listens to a good speaker bringing out interesting points and
gets all set to ask questions.
Then the bell goes!
He has been lectured at for
an hour, juat another class as
far as he is concerned. Some
get mad at the speaker or the
club, but most grow to accept
it as the norm.
They become listeners, and
when a speaker surprises them
by asking for questions there
is an embarassed silence.
From lack of practice nobody knows what to say or
how to phrase it. Somebody
in the front row asks a question and the rest of the audience settles back quite content
to listen to others fight. The
shock of a speaker who didn't
take up all the time is too
much for them.
To be constructive, I suggest
that chairmen beg, borrow or
steal one of those little egg
timers with a buzzer on it,
they have one large hand that
can be seen much more clearly
than any wristwatch. This instrument to be placed on the
desk in full view of the speaker. Chairmen could then hint
to prospective speakers that
acknowledgements, grateful
thanks, brief histories, summaries and witty little stories are
quite unnecessary and take up
precious time.
They might remember that
the audience is composed of
University students and professors, and it can be taken for
granted that they know the
rudiments of the subject being
discussed. As a last resort
chairmen could get the scripts
of those obviously long-winded
speakers. The whole idea
should be to save a reasonable
amount of time for questions
and answers. I am sure that
both the speakers and the audiences would appreciate and
benefit.
Personally, I have found that
the speaker who starts by saying he will not talk for very
long, is usually still talking
when the bell goes.
Yours, truly,
JUAN J. FULFORD

Rudeness
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
I would like to say that I
was disgusted with the reception Attorney-General Bonner
received Wednesday on our
campus.
Anyone who is invited by
UBC students to speak at our
university should at least be
given a fair chance to state his
case without the interference
of hecklers, some of whom
show a most amazing wit.
This incident will doubtless
do UBC's relations with the'
present government no end of
good. How can we expect the
government to give their full
support    to    our development
plans if our students have neither the maturity or the decency to accord one of their members a fair hearing, nor how
can we expect a favorable reception from the people of
Vancouver as we conduct next
week's blitz when many of
them will feel that the rudeness shown to Mr. Bonner is
characteristic of the student
body as a whole.
A NON-SOCRED

Suckers
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Once upon a time a fellow
named Tim Buck was invited
to speak to students on this
campus. Apparently some students disagreed with what Mr.
Buck said. So they spontaneously expressed themselves by
launching guided missiles at
Mr. Buck. One of those missies contained a dead cat. This
was all clean fun; so a Dean
said.
Several years later another
fellow was invited to speak to
students on this campus. Again
some students disagreed with
what he had to say. So they
proceeded to bombard their
new guest with paper balls,
lunches and other insults. This
was not a prank but spontaneous expression, so the student
paper said.
I suppose we all know who
this fellow was. He should be
commended for his fortitude to
speak to such an illustrious assembly of spontaneous expressionists however, it is unlikely
that he will ever show up
again before his well meaning
hosts.
This is all very sad because:
(a) This fellow has some influence-with people who give money to these students and; (b)
Other follows may in the future courteously decline to accept similar gracious invitations.
But let's not be sentimental!
Our motto and tradition will
always be: "Tuum Est", which
translated means: "Never give
a sucker an'even break."
PS—Fortunately for UBC,
there is a sucker born every
minute.

Over Emphasis
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
There is a criticism that defeats itself with over-emphasis.
A picture cannot be painted if
the significant and insignificant are given equal prominence. I suggest that the Editors of this newspaper acquaint
themselves with the art of selection if they wish their condemnation of Social Credit to
be effectual.
To dub every Social Credit
move "inefficient, dishonest
and corrupt" might possibly
dissuade some people, but most

Its individual members are sinless.
Yet how foolish it is to bring
ridicult and mockery upon
every phase of our present
provincial government's activities. The Vancouver Sun
realized this two years ago
when they suddenly found that
their avowed practice of "total
condemnation" resulted in the
greatest majority.
The Ubyssey, whose apparent purpose is Antf-Socredism,
should take stock of itself, realize that they may not necessarily be voicing "the long
•pent-up hatred" of the student
body, and offer a criticism
which will bring conviction to
its readers. Many students
have told me that the Hon.
Robert Bonner now commands
their respect, for his capabilities have been brought to light
in the face of a totally black
criticism.

Legitimate
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
In reference to your editorial concerning the comments
of Dr. John Ross, I feel that
you have stopped too soon. I
agree that the students of a
university should approach life
and the world critically; and
we of the church must recognize our error in trying to prevent this in times past. However, might I suggest that you
be even more critical and examine the presuppositions
which have been uncritically
spooned into the minds of a
generation reared in this age
which worships most at the
shrine of the great god science
(more properly called sclent-
ism).

Lunacy
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Concerning one "Jay's discerning letter about this campus' tendency to bite off more
than it can chew, I believe that
his opening remarks can be
immediately ignored as an evidence of misguided taste, but
to froth over at the mouth in
Mussoc's direction is lunacy.
The man obviously knows
nothing of Mussoc's tradition
of successes with other shows
comparable to "Call MJe Ma-
clam", and of the quality of
entertainment that we consistently produce. We therefore
invite him,  this renowned cri-
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
In reply to the "Jay" who so
uanimously saw fit to criticize
some of the UBC's student,
works.
"Jay" is obviously a critic
of some merit — having, no
doubt, read and studied many
Broadway shows, He seems to
be judging the student, production of "Call Me Madam" from
the standpoint of one of Vancouver's leading critics — the
professional.
However, with a few exceptions, the students of this campus are not professional actors,
singers or dancers — nor are
they trying to be such.
Nonetheless,   the hard work-
It is perfectly legitimate for
men to limit themselves to
what they can observe with the
senses and to try to find explanations for the things of
this world on these grounds
alone. But is it therefore valid
to say that these represent the
total explanation of the world
on the basis that they could
find no more? How could they
find more when they have
limited themselves in their presuppositions?
It would seem to me from
the fragments of Dr. Ross'
comments which you printed
that his primary concern was
that the other side of the discussion be presented. If you
are as open to truth as you
would have us believe, you
should be willing to hear this
side of the question also. This,
I am sure, is all that those who
call themselves Christians desire.
Sincerely,
J. O. PATTERSON,

Organization Man
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
It's sometimes frightening to
watch closely an ambitious
man in action; to watch him
join the "right" fraternity and
volunteer to work like hell on
every committee; to watch him
make an indiscriminate collection of friends with his disarming smile and well-rehearsed
wise-cracks; to watch him
make his way up, step by calculated step.
He may secretly scorn the
fraternity, hate the committees and be bored by the majority of his assembly line
friends. But something inside
him spurs him on to greater
and greater efforts. He's an
Organization Man and he's on
his way up.
He's often helpful but never
sincere; often enthusiastic, but
seldom interested; often diligent, but seldom constructive.
He's a secret believer in Tom
Lehrer's advice to boy scouts:
"Don't do good deeds when
nobody's watching you."
It's frightening too, to watch
the campus hang on his words;
to watch Joe College elevate
him on the strength of his nice-
ness; to watch him ride to success on a wave of platitudes
and play-acting.
Now, during election time,
he's liable to be prominently
hidden among the candidates
for Students' Council. There
are two or three of him every
year.
And the average voter,
through carelessness or ignorance, won't see the difference
between the man who is running because he has something
to offer, and he who is running
because he has something to
gain.
Yours truly,
BOB JOHANNES,
Arts IV
ing members of Mussoc are
faced with the problem of doing a show which appeals to
both the general public and
the students of this campus,
To do this, they have a very
limited budget — therefore,
the show they do must attract
enough people to make it pay.
This has not been accomplished very often in past years.
Last year when the club "bit
off more than it could chew?"
with "Girl Crazy", the show
was a success all around.
If "Jay" would care to take
the financing of these shows
on his own shoulders, I am sure
the members of Mussoc would
be only too happy to repeat
the flops and run-of-the-mill
shows they have produced in
previous years.
I suggest that "Jay" come
down from his high horse and
realize lhal this is a student
production and should be
judged as such.
I feel lhat this reply can be
applied to the other productions mentioned in the letter
as well.
Yours truly,

7 of 10 Candidates
Like WUS on Council
By MARY WILKINS
Elections Reporter
Of the ten first slate candidates in the AMS elections,
seven have come out in favor of Women's Undergraduate
Society retaining its seat on Council, and the other three
have given qualified answers.
Chuck Connaghan, presidential candidate, said in his
platform report submitted to The Ubyssey, that although
women should be represented on Council, that if the charges
levelled at WUS were true, that WUS and WAD should be
included as one Council seat.
Pete Meekison, was conditional in his view, in saying that
as a definite minority group, WUS should have consideration,
but only if it were to undertake more activities of major
importance should they retain their Council seat.
Both secretarial candidates were in favor of WUS —
remaining on Council. They split however, on the present
effectiveness of the organization.
Wendy Amor, said that WUS is fulfilling its object "considering and advancing the interests of women students on
campus."
Sue Ross, on the other hand, said that WUS should be
maintaining a stronger position.
USC candidate Pete Haskins, said that any move to
change the status of WUS should be done in consultation with
all women's organizations.
The other USC candidate, Jack McLean, agreed that WUS
should retain its seat, primarily because "it is one of the few
seats that reflects student opinion, and is in close contact with
the student body."
Presidential candidates were strongly divided on the
value of the general meeting system.
Meekison expressed favor of the meetings because they
"give interested students a chance to discuss points of major
importance and are a check on Council."
Connaghan, however, said they were of little real value,
for at the best, they only allowed the expression of the opinions
of a few students.
Giles, took the middle road, by answering that although the
meetings are of some value, being better than nothing, a
thorough study might determine a better alternative.
Another question which arounsed controversy was that
of the desirability of turning Brock Lounge into a cafeteria.
This time, Giles came out against the action and Meekison
and Connaghan said that is should be instituted only as a
lemporay measure to relieve the present overcrowding.
Giles qualified his stand by saying, that only on the approval
of a referendum vote would he advocate such a measure because "Brock Lounge is a student lounge and to turn it into
an eating facility would be to surrender it to the hands of the
administration."
In expressing his general platform, Connaghan said that
in view of the coming year of expansion, there will be a need
of re-organizatiop. In particular, he advocates greater delegation of the workload within the Council, to embrace more
people, and perhaps changes in student government.
He would also like to see a greater return to the student
for the money he pays to the AMS and an attempt to overcome extra-curricular needs by considering a new extension
to Brock by allowing part of the AMS budget surplus to go
into paying off the present debt.
Giles' platform includes the desire to see AMS backing for
undergrad societies and student activities beyond the walls
of Brock Hall; a thorough study of the AMS constitution and
nature of student government and USC needs; and the improvement of the physical plant of The Ubyssey, in that obtaining
staff will be a matter of choosing and not searching.
A Council sponsored program for greater campus unification i.s ope of the main plans in Meekison's platform. He also
advocates greater maintenance of the graduates interest in
the campus, in the hopes of bettering alumni relations; more
government sponsored scholarships, more inter-faculty c6m-
petitions.
Campaign promises^ of First Member candidates vary
widely.
Larry Burr stressed the strenghtening of student alumni
bonds, the importance of making Homecoming a financial
success; the expansion and re-organization of the Food Services
without turning Brock Lounge into a cafeteria and the improvement of Frosh Orientation.
Bruce McColl hopes to provide an "outlet to quarantee the
interests of the first and second year students at UBC." He
also suggests the possibility of turning some of the huts into
lounges and lunch rooms.
Bob Ward would like to see greater utilization of the Students' Executive Program, and stresses the importance of
greater delegation of authority to allow more students to
receive practical experience in committee leadership.

Science/ Humanities Clash At
Weekend Academic Symposium
Two panel discussions took place during last weekend's Academic Symposium attended
by 72 students and 35 professors at Parksville. The first, on "The University's Role in the
Community," found panelists in fairly close agreement. The problems in this question, ia
fact, did not come into sharp focus until the delegates began thrashing out questions such as,
"What new courses shall we have?" in smaller groups.
Dean   Geoffrey   C.   Andrew,<v
deputy to the president, led off
by mentioning four aspects of
the university's role: undergraduate teaching, graduate study
and research, professional education (law, theology, medicine,
etc.) and adult education.
Wayne Hubble, fourth year
honnors history student recently
awarded a Rhodes Scholarship,
added that the university must
consider itself the moral conscience of the community.
Dr. Stuart Jamieson, professor of economics, and Dr. J. E. A.
Kania, lecturer in civil engineering elaborated that the university should aim to produce well-
rounded citizens, well educated
as well as well trained.
There was no question of unanimity in Sunday's discussion
on "Science and the Humanities." While Dr. Cyril Belshaw,
associate professor of anthropology, and Dr. John Campbell,
professor of dairying, stepped
dow'n the middle of the road,

Gregor, head of the department

on the relative value of science
and the humanities.
Dr. Forsythe said that, since
scientists do their best work
when young, it would be a mistake to force top science students lo take humanities in their
undergraduate years. "Let them
pick that up later, after they
have contributed to science," he
said.

Starting   fast   but   soon   losing   drive,   the   determined
Thunderbirds gave way to first place Pacific Lutheran 81-58
in Evergreen Conference Basketball action this weekend.
The   Birds   went  into  Satur-i —
day's game with hopes high
after downing third-place College of Puget Sound 67-53 Friday night.
Ed Wild started the Birds
parade to victory over the
Puget Sound squad.
Wild produced on numerous
long jump shots from the top of
the key.
ZONE WORKED
UBC's zone was working to
perfection during most of the
game but rebounding was slow
and often weak. In the latter
part of the contest, the Birds
started to do better on the boards
with Drummond and Martin
clearing;
Barry Drummond was a standout both Friday and Saturday.
The ever improving forward
gathered 12 points against CPS
utilizing his long jump shot.
LEADING AT HALF
The Birds fought to a 34-30
half-time lead over CPS and
came back strong in the second
half. Ken Winslade scored eight
seconds after the opening
whistle.
Play was ragged under CPS's
backboard during most of the
half with UBC being hot and
cold in their attempts to collect
rebounds.
On the other half of the court,
the Birds put up a tight zone.
BIRDS LOOSER
With eight minutes left, UBC
played a nuuch looser brand of
ball which gave Winslade many
fast breaks and openings for his
accurate shooting.
Half way through the period
the Birds held a 53-41 edge.
Making use of many foul shots
UBC ended the game .leading
67-53.
High scorer for UBC was Ken
Winslade with 19 points, two
more than teammate Ed Wild
with 17.
PLC  WINS
As was expected, the strong
and unbeaten Pacific Lutheran
College won but not without
unexpected resistance from the
team from Canada,
Lance Stephens got the Birds
off to a quick two-point lead
but combining foul and long
shots, the Lutes jumped into the
lead and stayed there most of
the game.
BEST EFFORT
UBC's best effort of the weekend was put forth during the
second quarter.
Trailing 19-16 at the end of
the first quarter, the Birds
brought the score up to 23-22
with six minutes remaining in
the half. Seconds later they took
the lead, 24-23.
With three minutes left, they
were ahead for the last time
with a score of 26-25. Halftime
score read 37-34 in favor of the
Lutes.
AHEAD TO STAY
Going into the second half
the taller visitors caught fire
and soon were up 43-34 over thc
now disorganized Birds, Before
the Birds realized they were
caught with their zone down,
the Lutes were ahead 50-37.
Hard working Barry Drum-
I mond and Ed Wild tried to
\ steady the Birds, but the steam
! had already been taken from
j the squad. Coach Jack Pomfret's
second string bore the final on-
! slaught for the Birds as the team
wont down to the 81-58 defeat.
CURTIS  HIGH
Chuck Curtis of the Lutes
potted 37 points.
Rangy Lance Stephens did
the honors for the Birds in the
point department. He gathered
13. Barry Drummond totaled 11
points for the night, two more
than veteran Ed Wild.

VERY
NARROW
ED WILD
Prior to the start of action
Saturday, as is the annual custom, the graduating member of
the Birds is presented before the
last home game crowd. Veteran
of three years with the Birds,
Ed Wild received such recognition this year.
In the 1956-57 season, Ed was
selected as a member of the
Canadian Olympic basketball
team. He was also selected to
the second Evergreen All-Conference team last season. Ed
was the leading scorer for the
1956-57 Thunderbirds and with
the current squad, has been a
steady and reliable player.
The UBC Chiefs, playing
against a Fijian side from the S.S.
Suva, rolled up 44 unanswered
points in the first half at Varsity
Stadium on Saturday.
Point scorers for Varsity were:
Dave Howard — four tries,
Gerry McGavin — seven converts and two tries, and Don
Shore, Derek Vallis, Jack Henwood, and Bruno Gandossi —
one try apiece.
The Fijians had not played
for five months and were therefore quite unfit. However, in
the second half, when the opposing forwards changed shirts,
the native boys showed extremely well.
The Fiji backs and the UBC
forwards effectively kept possession of the ball in the scrums
and lineouts and ran a fine
cover defense to beat their opposite numbers 13-6.
Alfter spotting the Varsity
backs and Fijian forwards six
points (on tries by Howard and
Sinclair), the opposing team
scored three tries and two converts.
Tries went to Fijian centre
"Joe" and UBC forwards Vallis
and Bugg. Converts were booted by Joe and his teammate Sit-
ixeni.
After the final whistle, the
Chiefs were treated to 15 glorious minutes of wind sprints and
practice, runs.
Winning Weekend
For Hockey Women
In women's grasshockey action over the weekend, Varsity
tied Alums 1-1 and UBC defeated
North Van 4-1.
Varsity and Alums, tied for
third place in the league standings, were very evenly matched,
resulting in an extremely hard
and fast game.
The game was scorless at half
time, but early in the second
half Marilyn Peterson scored for
Varsity. Minutes later Colleen
Kelly of Alums tied up the score.
Outstanding player for Varsity was goalie Joan Lennox who,
especially during the final minutes of play, cleared numerous
shots on goal.
The UBC team, underdogs in
their game, surprised North Van
with their 2-0 lead at half time,
Early in the second half North
Van recovered sufficiently to
score their lone goal. UBC came
back with two more to bring
the final, score to 4-1.
Libby Shekury and Eleanor
Yates of UBC divided the honors with two goals each.
Next Saturday the league will
play thc first games of a round-
robin tournament to decide playoff positions. As a result of the
post-game   draw   last   Saturday,
Varsity will again play  Alums
and UBC plays North Van,
Both teams will practice Tuesday at 3:30 on the Women's
Field.

1957-58 basketball schedule by

A pair of Bobs — Burtwell
and Pickell — wrecked the Jayvees by scoring 18 and 16 points
respectively. The Funners took
a commanding 37-20 lead at half
time and then coasted from
there to the finish allowing
UBC to outscore them by five
points in the second half.

each scored nine points, while
Bill MacDonald and Fred Kangas both chipped in with eight
points.

Braves Up
For 16-10
Game Win
A "rugged Meralomas side
went down to a 16-10 defeat at
the hands of Braves, at sloppy
Connaught Park Saturday.
The match soon resolved itself into a fierce forward battle,
with players and play becoming
unrecognizable in the mire.
As usual Braves were slow in
waking up to the ability of their
opponents, and extended themselves only enough to stay in
the lead.
Dave Brockington led an effective enough pack, with a try
when it was needed most. Carl
Gustafson and John Legg secured the others, with Hugh
Barker converting two and adding a penalty.
NORTH SHORE BLANKED
At Aggie field Saturday, hapless North Shore ran into Tomahawks, who careened on to the
tune of 35-0.
Returning warrior Dave
Milne, a fast and powerful
scrummcr on anyone's team,
showed his mates the way, scoring two trys and making things
miserable for the All Black
pack.
BROKE COLLAR BONE
Bill Smith collected a broken
collar bone and a try, going
over after a fine series play by
the mobile Hawks scrum.
Bill Brabant and Jim Carney
collected two trys and four converts respectively, while single
trys were scored by people too
numerous to mention.
