Prof. W. G. Dixon, Director of
the School of Social Work urged
students to support the meeting.
"The Foundation, which seeks
to aid emotionally - disturbed
children, is meeting a long felt
need in Vancouver," he said.

UBC students will decide at the Spring general meeting if the editor of The Ubyssey
will be permanently removed from students' council.
Constitutional revisions committee of the students' council
has recommended that the editor not sit on the council in
future, but be responsible for the presence of a Ubyssey reporter at all council meetings.
At present the editor is an ex-officio member of the council
and has the right to speak at council meetings and participate in
debates preceding council decisions.
In his annual report to students council the co-ordinator ol
publications, Grant MacDonald, recommended that in future the
editor be removed.
MacDonald suggested the publications co-ordinator represent The Ubyssey, not the editor.
The students' council voted in favour of the recommendation. The motion must go before the general meeting because
it involves a change in the constitution.
A two-thirds majority is required to pass the motion.
The Engineering Undergraduate Society is expected to
recommend that the quorum necessary at a general meeting
be reduced to one-half the size of their organization.
This would mean that they could in future control the
quorum ensuring one when they wished by having half their
members attend.
For this motion to become effective it will have to be
passed at the spring general meeting.
The students' council met for more than seven hours Monday and discussed further constitutional changes as recommended to it by the committee.
It was the last joint meeting this year of old and new
It was ladies' night at Council last night. Following the
appointment of Barb Biely as Editor of The Ubyssey, Sallye
Delbridge was appointed Public Relations Officer of the Alma
Mater Society.
In the same meeting, forestry student, Laurie Peers, was
appointed chief justice of Student Court for the 1959-60 session.
Students' Council last night narrowly defeated a motion
to abolish international fraternities on the campus as organizations "inherently opposed to the ideals of higher education."
The motion was defeated after heated debate by a vote
of 10 to 8.
It's expected that the question will be considered again at
the AMS general meeting, March 19.
Featured today on pages 4
and five is a special International House edition.—Ed note.
The International House on
campus has always been the
meeting place for students
from all parts of the world. On
clubs' day this year, the enrolment totalled 186, but when
the club had moved from the
little hut to its permanent
building on the west mall the
membership soon climbed to
401; about 45% of these are
tions all over the face of the
globe. This should indicate the
Canadians, the rest from 47 na-
variety of nations, cultures and
races represented in Inter-
It may seem impossible that
all these students, with backgrounds varying so widely as
they do, and speaking perhaps
30 different languages, could
participate in the varied IH programme harmoniously. But as
you watch students eating their
lunch in the dining hall, playing table tennis and bridge, or
chatting gaily in the lounge, you
will be impressed with the real
brotherhood that prevails.
The friendly relationshhip
which exists is due not only to
the members themselves but also
to the carefully planned programmes, designed to make foreign students feel at home in
Canada. At Christmas time, dinner invitations were forthcoming from hospitable people, and
the House threw a lavish party
on New Year's Eve.
Every Friday night there is
a programme with special emphasis on life in other countries,
while on Sunday nights, free
dancing classes are held. In addition, the directors of the house
are making an honest attempt
to meet and know the foreign
students in the hope that the

It is difficult, we claim, to present democracy in an
attractive package to nations who are just awakening and
setting out to choose a form of government beneficial to
their economic, social and cultural conditions.
Tt ggerhs it is equally difficult to present democracy to
'Canadians'in'such a way as to make it attractive enough
to preserve.
Is it any wonder then that Premier Smallwood is
tolerated not just by Newfoundland, but by the rest of
Canada, that Premier Duplessis is regarded with hike warm
disdain which never borders on contempt by the majority
of Canactiaiis?
In view of the tradition of Canadian provincial leaders

is "about to climb on the band wagon by implementing

The Ubyssey celebrated its fortieth anniversary on
Saturday everting with a large party to which Pubsters,
past and present, were invited.
It Was a good party, but it- was a relatively quiet and
well behaved party and that is strange.
In their reminiscences written for the Anniversary
Edition, former Pubsters told in tear stained passages of the
parties of their days when gin was poured down the backs
of pretty young girls and you could always meet a friend
under the table.
Today's Pubsters speak of similar parties, the only
difference being that the host has usually taken the precaution to remove the tables.
Why, then, should these two groups, the past and the
present celebrate their anniversary in such a relatively
quiet way?
We are not saying that it was a dull party for it was
not, it was just not a Pub party in the great arid prdper
Perhaps the presence of the old dampened the spirits
of the yburig. Perhaps the presence of the young upset the
dlcl arid started thefn thinking that evergreen Pubster
thought about 6ach successful staif being worse than the
last.   Could tte, but rick likely.
The simple fact that we we¥e or are now Pubsters
should have been sufficient to produce a traditional noisy
gay party, but somehow it wasn't.     Why? J. M. F.

Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir':
So the Ubyssey keeps us informed, does it?

been lately? What happened to

28? How many people knew
about the UCC luncheon held
on March 5? Or the fraternity

Certainly the fee increase is
big news nowadays, but it is
not the only thing happening
on this campus. The General
opinion right now seems to be
that too much space is being
given to events such as Mr. B's
.toll-free crossing of the Oak
Street bridge or Mr. Wolf's rejoining the Campus Socreds.
These mean very little when
compared to the overall picture of Social Credit iniquity.
We are being treated to
enormous headlines over weak
slanted stories and melodramatic editorials that look pretty but dori't say much. The
Ubyssey is paying too mJucn
attention to being nasty and
not enough to being an unbiased, informative newspaper.
Only 13% per cent of all the
students took part in the strike
vote on Wednesday (i.e. 12%
per cent of the campus said
outright that they wanted to
strike) but the article on Thursday gave the general impression that most of the campus
was ready to walk out.
I am not a Socred and I am
definitely against the fee increase, but I think that the
forced propaganda appearing
in this rag is doing the campus
and the Ubyssey more harm
than good.
Sixty five hundred Ubyssey's

thank you.

I Am Disgusted
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
It has always been my belief
that the purpose of a newspaper, however small, is twofold—firstly, to keep its reading public informed about happenings and events on the area
it serves, and secondly, to provide, through its editorial columns, comment on these happenings. In short, it should act
as a mouth piece of public
In these past few* days, I
fear that the Ubyssey has been
sadly missing on both counts.
Frankly, I have been disgusted, arid I know that I do not
stand alone.
Oh, I know that the paper
has only limited space, and I
know that it cannot give to
every topic the amount of coverage it would like, I know
that it has advertising commitments, and that more newsworthy items must frequently
"give way to these space consuming necessities. But still I
am disgusted.

The Fatts,  Ma'am
Editor, the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
To change a line from one of
your editorials: "The Ubyssey
not only errs, it is hypocritical."
The Ubyssey printed a comparison of "THIS year's faculty
salaries at UBC with those at
Universities of Saskatchewan
and Toronto for NEXT year."
Perhaps it might have been
a little more enlightening (and
a little more honest) if you had
printed a comparison of annual
salary rates as of Nov. 1, 1958.
The figures, available from
the Dominion bureau of statistics, show Western Canada
pays the highest median salary
—$7,558—with Ontario second
at $7,420. Ontario universities
led in the previous two years.
Average salaries of Canadian
university teachers rose to
$7,136 in 1958-59. For all Canada, salaries ranged from an
average $5,144 for lecturers
arid;-instructors to $12,150 for
deans. ;'
As for the UBC fee hike,
even with the' increase UBC
fees are still lower -than at
U. of T. In addition, UBC students now have a scholarship
system which will pay half the
fees of first-class students and
one-third the fees of the top
2,000 second-class students.
Your AMS presented a brief
to the UBC board of governors
containing the statement that
a fee increase of more than $50
wfould distort the relationship
existing between the university's various sources of rev-
Dr. Claude Bissell, U. of T.
president, provides some food
for thought on this subject.
He said U. of T.'s support
follows "the traditional Canadian college pattern." Forty
per cent of its revenue comes
from provincial and Dominion
grants, 30 per cent comes from
private support and 30 per cent
is supplied by student fees.
In the event that you question my interest in this matter
and my right to speak on it, I

(This is the conclusion of a
statement by Melvin Shiith,
former president of the UBC
Social Credit Club.)
As far as recent resignations
from the Socred Club on carii-
pus are concerned, it never has
been, and probably never will
be, an easy thing to be a Socred on campus.
Carping criticism comes from
all quarters. Therefore, whenever the pressure is on, the
easiest way out is to resigri,
especially since the Ubyssey
will eulogize such action with
front page coverage. I question
the motives of the three that
have resigned. As far as Harvey Smith is concerned, he resigned one week before the
A.M.S. elections in which he
was running for U.C.C. chairman. I don't think that it is
unfair to say that he resigned
for the sole purpose of capitalizing on the publicity he hoped
to receive. Unfortunately for
him, but fortunately for us, he
lost his election. He is now bitter against the club because we
actively campaigned against
i Your attempt to blow these
incidents of resignations up
into vast proportions, Mr. Editor, is "yellow" journalism at
its worst and is just one more
attempt to destroy the club on
campus. You are entitled to
your own opinions, of course,
but it is not your function to
attempt to destroy. I suggest
that your whole attitude towards the club and towards
the fee increase is colored by
your own political views which
are of common knowledge.
In recent days much agitation has been made to have
Premier Bennett and the Minister of Education speak on
campus. To what end? Certainly it cannot be to learn the
facts of University financing or
even to hear the government's
side of the story. The' Minister
of Education spoke on university financing in the Brock
Lounge on Oct. 22 last. There
were lots of seats for all who
wished to attend. Incidentally,
not one line of space was given
in the Ubyssey announcing his
visit although coverage was
asked for and promised.
As far as Premier Bennett is
concerned, he spoke, or should
I say, tried to speak, in the
auditorium just a year ago now
and after that meeting he could
only come to the conclusion
that students were not interested in hearing the government's
side of the story. The only reason some are agitating for
another meeting is so that they
may put on another immature
exhibition. These childish spectacles have become a regular
occurrence. As long as I have
anything to say, these students
will not get the chance.

It was with great regret that
I learned that Dean Dorothy
Mawdsley has decided to retire

Women is a very important, difficult and demanding one, in
that it is concerned with principles and innumerable details

welfare, happiness and successful work of the young women
who are students at this University.
Because it is the policy of this

wise policy — that members of
the administrative staff should
be academically qualified in
their own chosen fields of study
and should give at least a minimum of their time and energies to the teaching of~~5tudents,

The  University  of B.   C.   senate  has  approved  a  major
change in the program leading to the degree  of bachelor  of
architecture, President N. A. M. MacKenzie announced today.
In future, architecture students
will study for a minimum of
three years in the faculty of arts
and science followed by three
years in the school of architecture.
Professor Frederick Lasserre,
director of the architecture
school, said the change in the
undergraduate program was the
result of discussions which have
been going on for two years.
"We believe that a higher
standard of general education
and a higher degree of maturity
should be achieved before the
student enters his specialized
professional training,"  he  said.
Under present conditions it is
difficult for a student who feels
dissatisfaction with his course
to switch to another field, Prof.
Lasserre said.
"The new proposal makes it
possible for the student to postpone the final decision until he
has matured in the University
for three years," he added.
"We also feel that under the
present curriculum confusion
arises from too many different
trends of courses being taught
in the same year," he declared.
T,he new curriculum will increase the academic vitality of
the school and allow the student to take a more active part
in student activities than is the
case at present, he said.
Prof. Lasserre said that under
the new program students would
be required to take additional
prerequisites before entry into
the architecture school. Once enrolled in the school courses will
be primarily professional in

old program will be continued to
its conclusion for those currently enrolled and for those who
plan entry into the school in the
1959-60 term.
Students who plan to enter
thereafter should see the director of the school as soon as possible.
Prof. Lasserre said that many
students enrolling under the
new program would be inclined
to obtain their bachelor of arts
or science degree before entering the school.

We believe that in this sadly divided world, those who
speak for the nations are too inclined to emphasize the
differences between the various members of the human
race; whereas we prefer to point out the similarities. In
this context we feel that the new International House is a
symbol most of all of mankind's hopes and dreams for the
For what group of people have more in common than
students at the same university? They are all there for the
abstract ideal of knowledge; they all regret the necessity
of passing examinations; they all like arguing over coffee.
Yet a group at International House may come from
opposite ends of the earth, speak a dozen different languages, worship their God in seven different ways, and have
skins of five different colors.
They consider these points of variance to be unimportant trivialities — and is it not possible that they are
We would suggest that our world leaders find more
points of similarity before they speak.
Also that they consider seriously the fact that this new
building was constructed in the completely impractical belief, that brotherhood will prevail.

East Indian From South
Africa Starts Local House
Given its Charter in May,
1951, the British Columbia
Chapter of the International
House Association not only predates U. B. C.'s International
House, it is also its parent. The
story of I.H.A. at U.B.C. begins
with a South African girl of
East Indian descent, Miss Frene
Ginwalla, who in 1947 founded
the International Students Club
on the U.B.C. campus. Herself a
former resident of the New York
International House, Miss Ginwalla found among the U.B.C.
faculty and their wives former
residents of the Berkeley and
Chicago International Houses,
and with them she discussed the
possibility of having some day
an International House at U.B.C.
It was from this group that
the first executive of the newly
chartered B.C. Chapter of I.H.A.
was drawn. President was Professor    Marjorie    Smith,    vice-
president and soon (in the absence of Miss Smith), president
was Professor Murray Cowie.
Other members of this original
executive were Dr. Wm. Simjons,
Miss Mary Buckerfield, Mrs. S.
E. Read, Mrs. E. Hill, and Mrs.
P. Ford. Working closely with
them was a committee of the
International Students' Club
header  by Mr.  Peter Stecki.
While there was as yet no
International House at U.B.C
the members of I.H.A. prepared
the way by arranging Sunday
suppers at Acadia Camp where
foreign and Canadian students
were brought together, and by
holding a series of orientation
lectures for students from
In April, 1954, the efforts of
the I.H.A. Chapter met with
their first notable success when
the University provided a hut
on the campus to  serve as an

interim International House,
pending the construction of a
permanent building.
Under the successive presidencies of Dr. D. MacKay, Mr.
S. E. Read, Dr. P. Ford, and Dr.
J. Friesen, the B.C. Chapter of
I.H.A continued to work for the
integration of foreign students
into the U.B.C. and Vancouver
communities. At the same time,
they pressed ahead to secure
financial support for the building of a permanent House. At
all times the Chapter had the
co-operation of the student International House Club which
had replaced the old International Students Club, and of
Miss Anne Furness, Mrs. Robinson, and Miss K. Gorrie who in
turn were managers of International House (the old hut).
When the Vancouver and
Marpole Rotary Clubs assumed
the major responsibility of raising funds for building the new
House, the B.C. Chapter of
I.H.A. undertook to contribute
towards its furnishings. To this
end, for the past three years
I.H.A. has held its autumn International Fair. With the new
House in use, I.H.A. has found
new areas for usefulness. Among
| them has been the underwriting

and  its   present  executive   head
is Mr. Fedor Cekich. The future
of   the   B.C.   Chapter   will  rest
more and more with the alumni
from our own House who, it is
hoped, will decide to join it. Its

Birds Win
After Losing
In Overtime
Friday evening, the University of Alberta took the first
game of a three game series
with UBC 62-61 in Overtime.
Allan Tellestrupwtas the leader
of the Alberta attack as he scored 22 points and seven of his
"team's 27 rebounds.
Alberta wasted no time in
running up a lead on the home
team and by half time were still
ahead 34-29. In the second half
however, UBC recovered partially from the initial surprise
of the power which Alberta
Tollestrup was outstanding in
the first half as he scored 19
points and took six rebounds.
In the second half, led by the
steady playing and shooting of
Ken Winslade, U.B.C. edged
back into the game and when
the final buzzer sounded the
Birds had tied the game at
In overtime however Dave
Dumaresq was the only UBC
player able to get on the score
sheet as he accounted for four
points. Gordon Fester, smooth
working forward for Alberta,
stepped into the hero's circle as
he scored the final basket with
only eight seconds remaining.
Saturday evening the UBC
Thunderbirds attempted to show
the visiting University of Alberta Golden Bears how to play
basketball as they whipped the
visitors 70-36.
After running up a 40-7 half
time lead, coach Jack Pomfret
threw all his reserves into the
game and they too managed a
good showing against U. of A.
In th first half Alberta was
unable to come anywhere near
their season's shooting average
of 37 per cent. They could only
score one basket from the field
in 29 attempts. In the second
half they scored one quarter of
their 44 attempts.
Wayne Osborne was the only
UBC regular to spend much time
one the floor and was quite at
home in the rough, sloppy type
of play. His weight gave him
much advantage in the rebounding department as he and Ed
Gushue controlled the backboards. Osborne also continued
to show improvement in his
shooting, as he notched 11 of 19
attempts from the field.
"They won most of the battles, but we won the war!"
This quote aptly describes
UBC's winning of the Evergreen
Conference Swimming Championship last week-end in Tacoma, as the host College of
Puget Sound Loggers won 8 of
the 14 events but couldn't match
the great show of depth and desire the spirited Birds put on to
come out on top 134-117. Also-
swams in the meet were Western and Eastern Washington
Colleges with 45 and 44 points
For the victory, UBC coach
Pete Lusztig's boys showed tremendous drive and put on a
great team effort with few
bright stars but good placings in
every event.
Top man individually was
veteran Les Ashbaugh who
picked up one of the Birds two
first placings as well as finishing
second in two more events. Les
captured the 200-meter breast-
stroke in a time of 3:06.2 edging
out Jerry Hartley of CPS who
had earlier defeated him in the
100-meter race.
Behind Ashbaugh in third
place in both of these events was
Penticton's Norm Tribe. Kalman
Roller also picked up a fifth
spot in the 200-meter race.
Rounding out his day was Les'
placing in the 200-meter individual medley, one spot higher than
teamimate Dio Creed.
Tribe also teamed up with
Bunny Gilchrist (backstroke),
Bob Bagshaw (butterfly), and
Rollie Haw.es (freestyle) to take
the 400-meter medley relay in
a time of 5:13.8.
Like Ashbaugh, young Gordon Gilchrist also added two
second placings in the 100- and
200-meter backstrokes to go
with his blue ribbon. Alan
gwanzey finished fifth and
fourth in these evepts while Bill
McKerlich was sixth for 100-
meter s.
UBC flooded the butterfly
finals as Bagshaw and Creed
finished 2-4 and 4-2 in the 100-
and 200-meter races respectively. Dave Gillanders with a third
and fifth and team manager
Bruce Cowie with a fifth and
sixth also picked up points for
the Birds in these events.
Team co-captain Pete Pellatt
grabbed a second spot in the one
rneter board diving event,  one
placing ahead the veteran Ken
Bill McKerlich, Doug Main,
Ernie Berno, and Craig Campbell added a valuable ten points
for a second place in the 400-
meter freestyle relay, beating
out Eastern's highly rated quartet.
Main and Berno picked up
two third places apiece in the
distance and sprint freestyles.
Marc Lemieux trailed Main with
fourth and fifth finishes in the
distance events.
McKerlich and Campbell were
one placing behind Berno in
the 50- and 100-meter races respectively and toy round out the
days total Rollie Hawes finished
fifth in the 100-meter race.
To win this meet, the Birds
had to overcome a disputed disqualification and some questionable judging in the diving event.
Thus UBC finished out its ^en
year stint in the Evergreen Conference with its eighth title.
This is quite a tribute to both
Pete Lusztig and to his team as
they had a tough, wearysome
schedule but still managed to
come out on top in the end,
Ex-team captain led his swim
mates to Evergreen victory
as he collected Birds' only
individual event win, as well
as two second place ribbons.
Last night UBC won the third
game of their best of three series
with the University of Alberta
Golden Bears to which could be
emblematic of supremacy in
western Canadian college basketball.
It took UBC Thunderbirds 35
minutes out of a 40 minute ball
game Monday evening to take
the lead but this was soon
enough as the Birds were still
ahead of the Alberta Golden
Bears 64-61 when the final bell
Ken Winslade took things into
his own hands in the second half
of last night's ball game. At the
half the score read 30-26 for the
visitors With Winslade having
two points to his credit. In the
latter half Winslade scored 14
including six crucial points.
With five minutes left the Birds
were down 53-52. Winslade
scored to put the Birds ahead,
then Alberta scored, Winslade
then pushed through two free
throws and a field goal as UBC
took the lead 57-55 and never
looked back.
Alberta continued to play the
scrambling, close, hard checking type of game they showed in
the previous two games. Led by
fiery coach Steve Mendryk who
saw fit to complain of every foul
called for or against his team.
Mendryk yelled from the opening whistle but most loudly
after the game when in the final
seven minutes UBC had two
fouls called against them compared with  14 against Alberta.
Allan Tollestrup again showed his scoring style as he poured
in 20 points. After Alberta had
taken a 2-0 lead in the third
minute of the gamp and the UBC
crew left their zone defence,
Tollstrup showed his form. He
continually beat the back men
in UBC's defensive setup.
Wayne Osborne continued to
show improvement as he came
close to an all time rebounding
record at UBC with 17 and still
took time out to score 14 points.
Keith Hartley took his first full
turn at the post position for
many weeks and showed well
with 11 rebounds and 13 points.
U.B.C: Dumaresq 4, 7, 5; Tre-
leaven; Drummond 7, 6, 14; McDonald; English 2, 3, 0; Hartley

The first stage of Canada's
only International House is complete. The social centre is built
and functioning smoothly. But
the main building does not mark
the end of International House
development. It is hoped that
UBC's International House will
continue to grow and will reach
more and more foreign and
Canadian students.
At present the House is only
open from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. It is hoped that in the near
future the house will be open
for twtelve hours a day, and
seven days a week instead of
the present five. When the
house is open longer there will
be more time for such activities
as discussion groups and recreation.
As well as an increased usage
of the social centre there are
plans for the construction of an

far in the future it is hoped that
in time both foreign and Canadian students will be residing in
an international dormitory.
