Local RCMP Investigate
Counterfeit $100 Bills
University RCMP are investigating the passing of two counterfeit $100 bills during registration last week.
The   bills   were   believed   to
have been passed  in  the Arm-
UBCsMSI Plan
UBC's "tailor rnade" medical plan, the first of its kind on
any North American university campus, will be discontinued
next year unless it receives more support from students.
This was the warning given by
Dr. A. K. Young, University
Health Service Director, as he issued an urgent appeal for sup-
""* port of the Medical Services Incorporated plan.
COST NOMINAL
The MSI scheme, costing students only $10 per year, provides
surgery, specialist fees while in
hospital, and certain other medical expenses not included in the
present health services program.
Together with the existing coverage through the UBC Health
Service, students taking advantage of the MSI program will
have the most comprehensive
*i. ' medical care program on a North
American campus, Dr. Young
said.
Registrations for the plan will
be accepted at the Accounting Office in the Administration building.
The combined service will not
supply glasses, or dental care, but
provides some drugs and medicines, some physiotherapy, maternity care but no delivery, administration of local anesthesia,
lab services, radiology and nursing care.
ACCIDENTS COVERED
Home and office visits are not
covered, but this does not apply
to accidents requiring emergency surgery.
Applications for coverage under the plan cannot be considered after October 1, but until
then MSI officials will be on
hand to issue identification
"v        cards.
'tween Glasses
RCMP have issued a warning to students with out of
province cars that their vehicles must be registered with
the Motor Vehicles Branch in
Victoria.
Of Interest
When the Armoury closed at
noon on Saturday, 11,111
students had completed their
registration.
This is a new record for enrolment at UBC.
The grand total for last year
was 10,496.
The present total for this year
is expected to increase by four
to five hundred when late registrations finish coming in,
according to figures released today   by   the  UBC   Information
Office.

They were described as "excellent imitations" by UBC accountant H. M. Craven.
University RCMP said the
first bill was not discovered until money from the University
branch of the Bank of Montreal
was transferred to a downtown
branch Friday morning;
Craven said the Armoury
cashiers were immediately ordered not to accept $100 bills,
but another -was found when
cash already accepted was
counted.
University RCMP, who have
begun an investigation into the
forgeries, said it is the first time
passing of bogus money has
been reported on campus.
They said all businesses in the
University area have been alerted and warned campus cashiers
to be on the lookout for the
bills.
New Building For
Applied Science
Anglin - Norcross (Western)
Ltd. has been awarded a $608,-
637 contract for the construction
of a chemical engineering building for the University of British
Columbia.
The three - storey building,
costing a total of $750,000, is
scheduled to be completed for
the   Fculty  of Applied Science.
Construction of the other
buildings in the development
will be undertaken as soon as
funds are available.
Car Towing Starts
Wednesday
Illegally parked student cars
will be towed away starting
Wednesday, warned T. S.
Hughes, superintendent of
buildings and grounds Monday.
"We're not doing this as a
punishment, but for the safety
of all concerned," Mr. Hughes
said.
He said tickets would not be
issued, as cars found parking
illegally will be towed away
immediately. A sliding scale of
fines (first offence $5; second
!510; third, $25; finally leading
to removal of parking privileges) plus towing charges, will
be assessed against the owners
of illegally  parked vehicles.
"Originally, we planned to
start impounding cars next Monday," Mr. Hughes said, "but disregard for the regulations has
forced us to start earlier."
He said that waiting longer
might result in serious trouble.
"It is a miracle that there were
no serious accidents last year,
the way regulations were disobeyed,"  he said.
Fines may be payed and impounded cars reclaimed at the
Traffic Office in the north end
of the Buildings and Grounds
building. Authorities will crack
down especially on students
parking in faculty, staff or visitors'  areas,  Mr. Hughes  said.
Faculty and staff will not be
immune to the new regulations
either, Mr. Hughes said.
He warned that they too will
have their cars impounded, if
they abuse the privileges conferred  by   their stickers. Page 2 ■ Vs^HVIV*'     THE      UBYSSEY

Backing The Congo
(Reprinted from The Christian Science Monitor)
The United Nations now enters the most crucial lap of
its race to keep ahead of crisis in the Congo.
Security Council debate will centre on whether UN
forces in the Congo can remain there, and if so whether they
can extend their powers in order to start rehabilitating the
strife-rent area. The key question underlying the weekend debate will be contentions by various intrested parties to the
African free-for-all that the UN referee has been partial to
one contestant or another.
The United States and many European members will say
that despite the presence of the referee on the field, Moscow,
a supposed spectator, has jumped down from the stands and
started handing clubs to what looks like the winner.
Many leaders of African nationalism have shown a quiet
recognition of tKis danger. Ghana's Premier Nkrumah, after
careful political sounding, made a statement of warning
about it.
But the leaders of African nationalism are also likely to
agree to Moscow's objection that the referee is also permitting
the Belgians to slip out of the stands and hand out weapons
to Mr. Lumumba's rivals.
In fact, the well-publicized arrival of nine tons of Belgian small arms in Katanga Province unfortunately slowed
down a movement of uncommitted nation sentiment away
from   Mr.   Lumumba   and his   backers.
However, Secretary-General Hammarskjold appears to
have made the best out of this upset. His wrist-slap at the
Belgians for allowing the arms to be shipped may help preserve the backing for his original' veiled warning to the
Russians for exactly the same kind of intervention.
If the Security .Coupncil can appear to be helping the
referee push unruly fans back into the stands on rival sides
of the stadium, the needed solid majority of African and
world opinion may back it and force Moscow to withhold its
veto.
Then the stage would be set for Mr. Hammarskjold to
get back to his original problem: how to put the Congo into
minimum working order again without seeming to reimpose
white rule or to take sides in the Congo's political civil warfare.
Mr. Hammarskjold deserves strong and prompt backing
for his courageous, and scrupulously fair, stand. He is beseeching the world once again not to allow the Congo to become
the scene of either an international war, like Spain or Korea,
or a tragic civil war. And then he is asking that this double
preventive effort be followed by a double constructive job
involving: (1) outside mediation of personal political differences in the Conga, and (2) a UN-backed recovery program.
The Secretary-General's struggle with Mr. Lumumba's
erratic behavior is not over. The Congo Premier has used the
UN as one of his thee chief scapegoats to divert Congolese
disappointment at the sorry mess that the ecstatically awaited
"Freedom" has turned into. But if the Security Council is
resolute, Mr. Lumumba may have to change his mind about
the UN once again. If so, the Congolese people and the cause
of the African nationalism will gain. r.Eue.sday, September 20,  1960

S t u d e n t s  Discuss N a f i o n a I
Problems  and  Development
NFCUS Seminar Brings
Canadian Delegates to UBC
DR. E. FORSEY, research director of the Canadian Labour Congress, talks with U.B.C.
committee members Elwood  Dreidger and Pete Meekison.
Gordon is Keynote
Speaker at Seminar
Fifteen prominent Canadians put their expert opinions on
Canadian Education, Research and National Development under
scrutiny of 130 top sudents from across Canada during the Third
Annual NFCUS Seminar held here August 28 - September 4.
Walter   L.   Gordon,   keynote
speaker, posed the question
"Whither Canada — Satellite
or   Independent   Nation?"
Mr. Gordon stated that before
the question could be intelligently and effectively answered
each Canadian must ask himself
how much importance he
attached to retaining his political and economic independence.
"If we are sensible" stated
Mr. Gordon, "we should decide
either to accelerate the pace of
further integration with the
Unitd States, politically as well
as economically, or alternatively,
to take steps without delay to
reverse the present trend."
; Mr. Gordon said that to re-
; verse the present trend would
cause some difficulty and perhaps some hardship.
The standard of living would
' not rise as rapidly, Mr. Gordon
said. He expressed the opinion
however, that Canadians are
prepared to pay this price and
always have been when the situation has been explained to
them.
Mr. Gordon offered opinions
on several other pressing Canadian problems:
ON NORAD ... it seems to boil
down to the fact that Canada
has contributed a few squadrons
to the American air force.
ON NEUTRALITY ... the
Americans are our friends —
our very best friends ... it is
idle to think that we could remain neutral even if we wanted
to.
NUCLEAR ARMS ... if Canadian defence forces are to be
equipped with nuclear arms I
think a decision to use such arms
should be made by Canadian
authorities and by them alone.
ON EDUCATION ... we should
Jiave an urgent incentive to improve our educational facilities
at all levels and to make it'
possible for a larger percentage !
of our high school graduates to '
go to university. ]
NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT . .!
I would like to see this coun-1
try twenty years from now with
a population of 27 or 28 millions ,
. . . with a higher standard of
living . . . with plenty of opportunity ... I want to see Canada remain as free and independent as it is possible for any
single country to be in this inter-dependent world.
Dr. Eugent Forsey, director of
research, Canadian Labor Congress, pointed out that political
neglect motivated the labor alliance between the CLC and the
CCF.
"Our long-time policy of trying to get what we wanted from
the Liberals and Conservatives
wasn't very successful or we
wouldn't be trying to launch a
new party now."
OUTSIDE OF  POLITICS
Dr. Forsey said that the CLC,
as such, was not going into politics or doing any merging. It
would be kept outside of politics but individual unions could
make their own decisions regarding support of the new
party.
Labor believes that a person
should be able to obtain all the
education he can absorb, Dr.
Forsey said. "But this does not
imply a university education for
all."
Today's inadequate sense of
values and the present unemployment situation are shocking, Dr. Forsey said—particularly the fact that more money
is being spent on liquor and tobacco than on health or education.
PLANNING NEEDED
"It won't matter what political
party  is in office,  they'll have
WALTER GORDON
. . . keynote speaker
to do a lot of planning and carry
on a lot of planning within the
framework of freedom. I hope
this will be done by an increasingly informed electorate."
Dean F. H. Soward, director
of international studies at UBC,
maintained that Canada could
not retire to neutralism on isolationism. In the power politics of
this century Canada can play a
useful role as a mediator and
conciliator among nations, Canada cannot, however, be a leader.
Dean Soward disagreed with
the assertion that Canada is subservient to the United States.
"At times we have been one of
the most effective critics of the
U.S."
INADEQUATE   HIGH
SCHOOL  TRAINING
In a panel discussion Professor Earl Birney of the English
department charged that one-
quarter of UBC freshmen were
semi-literate and laid part of
the blame on inadequate high
school training and part on the
current over - emphasis on
science.
Dean David Myers of the faculty of applied science, countered with the fact that the department of English alone had
more professors than the whole
of the faculty of applied science.
Professor Birney pointed out
that this was necessary in order
to teach the Engineers English.
Leading educators and students from across the country
met at UBC his summer for the first Canadian Sudent seminar
held on the west coast.
About 130 students from 34
colleges and universities heard
authorities discuss the topic "Research, Education and National
Development  in  Canada."
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie, instrumental himself in the founding of NFCUS, welcomed the
delegates to  the  seminar.
Peter Meekison chaired the
conference, witn Dr. W. A.
Bryce of the U.B.C. Chemistry
Department and Mr. Ivan Feltham of the Law Faculty as Co-
Directors.
The delegates attended the
third annual seminar of the
National Federation of Canadian
University  Students.
A first for the Seminar was
the simultaneous trans lation
system set up to accommodate
the seventeen non-English speaking students.
Keynote speech was given by
Mr. Walter Gordon of the Royal
Commission investigating Canada's economic prospects.
Other speakers included Dr.
John Convey, Director Mines
Branch, Department of Mines
and Technical Surveys; Dr Samuel Beatty, past chancellor of
the University of Toronto.
Dean Myers, Dr. E. Birney,
Dr. Anderson, Dean Soward and
Dean Andrew of UBC gave
addresses.
Dr. E. Forsey, Director of Research Canadian Labour Congress; Dr. J. Davis, Director of
Research and Planning, B. C.
Electric  Co.;   Mr. H.   Leslie
Brown,   Deputy   Minister  of
Trade and Commerce, Dr. Leon
Lortie; and Hon. Ray Williston,
Minister of   Lands and  Forests
also spoke.
A  field trip to Port  Alberni
to   visit the  Somass Saw   Mill,
Alberni   Pulp   and  Paper  Mill
and the Alberni Plywood Plant
gave the students a  first   hand
look at B.C.'s primary industry.
Included in the one day visit to
Vancouver Island was a banquet
in -Parksville   with   Dr.   Leon
Lortie as dinner speaker.
A change of pace was provided as delegates were sent to
"The Music Man" and an informal dinner and dance at Holly-
burn  Mountain.
Of the 130 delegates 45 were
women.
Discussion groups and question periods with the speakers
gave students a chance to discuss national problems and
ideas for national growth.
Included in the conference
was a short meeting of student
newspaper representatives from
across the country.
All Canadian students are
members of NFCUS and eligible
to participate in conferences of
this type.
This week NFCUS delegates
from Canadian Colleges are
meeting in Halifax,.N.S. to evaluate tr^ conference and to'hold
the annual business meeting of
the Federation.
The third NFCUS congress,

THIS CAMPUS
By. Sr.
It is particularly refreshing
for those of us who have been
on the campus for a few years
to witness each year at this
time the miracle of re-birth
of the campus. A pretty enough
sort of place at most times the
campus in the fall is especially
inspiring with the freshettes
abounding, bright-eyed and
bushy-tailed from Brock to
CNIB hut, from Bus stop to
caf. and back, all on the giddy
round of getting started into
the campus routine.
Second and third year girls
can be seen going the rounds
as well, but their tired, lined
faces bear witness to the fact
that they nave been through
all this before . . . many times.
Those who do manage to
shuffle about do so perfunctorily without the real LOVE of
coffee and men that stimulates
their younger sisters.
The really experienced upper
classmen of course, are not to
be found engaging in these
guileless pursuits. Already
hardened veterans of the fray,
these men know that during
the first weeks, much hard
work must go into laying the
foundations of a really successful term.
There is a seat in the Brock
lounge to nab, and canned
notes to line up with the previous year's class. Foolish indeed
would be he who let the first
week of term lapse without
making sure that his carral in
the stacks did not command an
excellent view of the traffic
of popsies through the loan
desk.
Most active of all, of course
are the Greeks. For apart from
their purely personal arrangements, such as duplicate keys
to each other's apartments,
they have the group to think
about. With Rushing fast
approaching, there are skits to
polish, smiles and handshakes
need checking and the stiffness
which a summer of disuse is
certain to bring, dispelled. By
early next week you will once
again be treated to the spectacle of one of these social
gymnasts hoisting a beer, flashing a grin, shaking a hand in a
display of co-ordination that
will   beggar description.
These are only the outstanding examples of f irst-of-the-
year organizational rumblings
of course. The astute observer
cannot fail to notice a hundred
more in the coruse of these
first few sunny afternoons, as
professors, clubmen, buildings
and grounds and hucksters
respectively go about their
eternal tasks of sedating, en-
ticeing, organizing, confusing,
regimenting and impoverish
ng your some 12,000 numbers
in the busy and most improbable business of getting this
bloody place under steam once
again.
As  I   said  it's  a  particularly
inspiring process.

FOB THE BIBBS
By MIKE HUNTER
Last weekend, the UBC football team played Western
Washington College. Some people realize that's across the U.S.
border somewhere. Some even know it's in Bellingham. Others
just don't know where it is. Most don't care.
Western Washington isn't bad—the name gives you a couple
of clues to its location. Unfortunately, UBC's past athletic schedules have included Washingtons from several other points of the
compass. Throw in half a dozen more schools, whose names are
without directional signals, and you have a mess worse than a
Fort Camp breakfast. Offhand, do you know where College of
Puget Sound is? Don't say in Puget Sound. Me, I throw darts at
an atlas with about as much success.
These mystic schools comprise the Evergreen Conference—
a geographer's nightmare, and a financial director's paradise. Nobody knows exactly where they are, but they're only a bus trip
away. In the Evergreen Conference, UBC stayed within its budget,
and occasionally won games. We lost, but we usually saw good
football.
But students won't rally behind a team that wins only moral
victories. Crowds got small and smaller. Whitworth (who?) College last year beat our footballers 42-0. We had a pretty good
team. Not knowing where your opponents come from is one
thing, but losing to them is another. Especially when your school's
five or six times as big.
WCIAU  GOOD — FOR FANS
Last year, UBC realized a move that had been cooking for
several years. They pulled out of the Evergreen Conference, and
now play only exhibition games there. They joined with the
provincial universities of the three other western provinces and
formed the Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union. The
new league will not be in full operation for a few years—only
men's football and basketball engage in league play. The other
sports enter two- or three-day tournaments.
The move has its advantages and disadvantages. So far the
disadvantages seem to be prevailing. UBC's meagre athletic funds
must bear the brunt of the long excursions to the Prairies.
That, friend, can be expensive, even on the Family Plan.
The idea behind the switch, of course, is that students will be
more interested in schools, Canadian schools, that you don't need
a map to find. Prairie students, officials hope( will turn out to
see their "hometown" teams. Theleague will also bring Canadian
universities closer together.
Perhaps it is unfair to compare the two leagues, with the
WCIAU in such an early stage of development. Officials have
sacrificed, temporarily   at  least, calibre  for   crowds.
DARTS,   ALREADY!   __
Anyway, let's hope the new league is a success, on the field*
in the grandstand, and in the bank. If it is, it could start Canadian
athletics back on the road to international prominence, by break?
ing the apathetic public outlook towards amateur sport. Let's
hope it spurs more interest and participation on campus. And let's
hope this season starts it off with a bang—with some good, solid
competition, and some cheering crowds.
But for those exhibition games, I'll keep a dart in my desk,
and a map of Washington State on my wall. Actually, that meth--
od's just as effective—except I have a slight hook that sometimes
puts me in the Pacific Ocean.

Birds Win Opener
In Whitewash Job
Frank Gnup's UBC Thunderbird footballers surprised the
Western Washingon Vikings 8-0 Saturday in the first game
of the 1960 season.
Despite a slow start, the Birds
played as a well-oiled unit. They
capitalized on their third series,
from scrimmage, with fullback
Roy Bianco getting the TD.
GNUP   IMPRESSED
Coach Gnup, who had resigned himself to a three touchdown defeat before the game,
said that his boys played the
greatest game that he has seen
since coming to UBC. They were
impregnable defensively. Gnup
feels that if the Birds play the
same kind of ball throughout
the year,, they will be the next
best thing to unbeatable. "They
were really knocking", he
growled.
A variety of reasons, from
working late at summer jobs, to
poor marks has left the coach
with a lack of depth and experience. Many established stars
have been unable to return for
some of these reasons.
BIG HOLES TO FILL
Big holes in the lineup Gnup
must fill  include  the  halfback
spot vacated by last year's Bobby
Gaul trophy winner   as   UBC's
outstanding   athlete,  Jack Henwood, who has graduated. Fans
and  the  team   alike  will   miss
... his shifty running. Another big
\absentee is tackle Doug Mitchell,
Nun ted: on by  Gnup to be the
>* mainstay of his line. Mitchell's
'      amateur status has been quest-
-       ioned, due to the haggling  between the B. C. Lions and Calgary for his playing rights after
he graduates. Doug was one of
the Birds' top linemen last year.
Despite the poor showing during practises, and the loss of
these and other stars, fans can
took forward to a fine season,
With the return of end Wayne
Osborne, fullback Roy Bianco,
and Jimmy and Gord Olafson,
all bright spots of last year. And
the big line should be as strong
as ever with the return of such
stalwarts as Denny Argue, Doug
Piteau and George Turpin. Stan
Knight will be back in the
quarterback slot.
X
LUTES  NEXT
The Bird's next action will
also be an exhibition game,
against Pacific Lutheran College
at UBC Stadium.Game time for
this, the first home game of the
season, is 2  o'clock.
In other football action last
weekend, UBC Jayvees won
their third straight, a 13-9 triumph over the Surrey Rams.

West New Rowing Head;
Read Still in the Picture
By DIETER URBAN
A new crew and a new coach, that's the UBC rowing picture.
This is actually a misleading statement for the winning spirit
will be the same as will be the training method. Laurie West
apostle of Frank Read, has been presented with the coaching
duties for B.C.'s world famous oarsmen.
However Mr. Read will remain active in the sport of his
choice. Word has come from
President N. A. M. MacKenzie
that Read has been appoined
special lecturer in UBC's physical education department.
FRANK READ recently appointed  special  lecturer   at
UBC will not be completely
out of the rowing picture.
HOCKEY PLANS
BIGGEST YEAR
Because of a heavier-than-
usual schedule, the UBC hockey
team starts its training program
early this season. The Thunderbird hockey squad has entered
a league which includes the universities of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Ten games
will be played in regular league
competition.
Although the 'Birds have a
core of regulars returning to
play, many positions are still
available.    '
READ IN BACKGROUND
This in itself is no new
arrangement. Since 1956 Mr.
Read has worked in the background, giving advice to the
coach as well as the individual
rowers. It was only for the recent Olympics that Read filled
the post of official head coach.
West has the desire to take
(Read's place. It took him only
nine  months to earn a spot in
Canada's boat -that took the BEG"
gold medal.   Before   that   time
Laurie had never sat in a shell.'
Itis therefore no surprise that>
West will keep Read's training
routine  —  "with my  interpretations,"   adds the 25 year old,
coach.
BEGINNERS TO CHAMPS
West can take beginners and
make them into champs.;
•He proved this two years agov
when he took eight boys from
Shawnigan Lake School and'
turned them into national schoolboy rowing champions.

I " ByALANDOBRAY
Welcome back to University and to what looks to me to be
one of the best years in the entertainment world both live and
filmed. As a couple of examples, last night I had the pleasure of
meting one of the all time greats from the jazz band era, Benny
Goodman.
From what I have heard the Johnny Mathis show which is
on tonight and tomorrow night will be one of he best musical
reviews this fall. He has a full company of thirty-eight people
with him.
Then on Thursday, September 29, Victor Borge, the Grand
Master of Musical Comedy comes to town.
Later on this fall the famous comedian Mori Sahl will be
here, and for the piano fans Roger W»lHams, and possibly Liber-
ace; for vocalist fans, Dennis JDay and the Mills Brothers. As I
said before, this looks like a big year for live entertainment.
Already we have had Guy Mitchell and Louis Armstrong, who
played to a capacity crowd and gave one of his best performances,
with some great songs including "Blueberry Hill", "I'm Going to
Write Myself a Letter", "Saints Come Marching in."
Currently playing at the Cave Supper Club are those five
zanie characters "The Goofers". I haven't had such a good laugh
since the Shelley Berman show. Have you ever wondered what
would happen to Elvis if he had a bigger guitar—about the size
of a double bass for example? Tom Terry will show you.
Then from the Waldorf Astoria they bring you the Guy LOm-
bardo trio, Art, Bart and F . There is an Ape Man in the act
by the name of Jimmy Vincent, who can really beat those skins.
If that is not enough, they start playing their instruments
from pogo sticks, and a flying trapeze. So for a night of real fun
and laughter go and see THE GOOFERS. ^
In the film end of the entertainment world there are several
films currently playing, that are well worth seeing, and one of
these is THE APARTMENT * * * *.
In this film there is sex, suggestiveness, and Shirley Mac-
Laine, who won Best Actress of the Year at the Venice Film Festival for this performance, subtle humor and satire, but in view
of the quantity of the hilarity it delivers this offering should be
classed as a comedy.
There's an overall aura of drama, moments of pathos, and one
incident of near tragedy adroitly woven into this lad-meets-lassie
yarn.
The story basically is that Jack Lemmon, an extraordinarily
ambitious clerk in a large Gotham Insurance Company is secretly
in love with Shirley MacLaine, who operates an elevator in the
sky scraper the company owns.
To curry favor with four department heads, philanderers all,
Lemmon regularly permits them to use his bachelor apartment
as a trysting place to meet their respective girl friends.
Fred MacMurray, the big boss, joins the stream of men who
use Jack's apartment, and through an accident Jack discovers
that Fred's back-street sweetheart is Shirley. Then the fun really
begins. .
