Support For Student B u i Id in g
To Be Asked At General Meeting
Site of Old Medical Huts
Proposed As New Location
Student support of the proposed Students' Union building
will be called for tomorrow at the Annual General meeting of
the A.M.S.
IS THIS WHERE tomorrow's General Meeting will be held? Someone seems to think so.
. Kind, considerate students have made extensive preparations to insure that the meeting
will be a big spl  er bash. Please come.
Dunked Tow TruekeivFound
To Be Forestry Imposter
Two hundred green-sweatered
Forestry students declared last
Friday "B-Day" and threw a
"Busters" tow truck into the totem pole pond near the Library.
Two hundred green-shirted
foresters tried to hoax the campus.
They threw a third-year Forester, who wishes his name withheld, Tnto the pond. The Forester,
who shall be called Johnny, was
wearing what the Forest Club—
which serves as Forestry Undergraduate Society—thought represented a "Busters" uniform.
The hoax was carefully planned and organized.
On Friday morning a sign appeared in front of the lily-pond—
which has been empty for several days—declaring Friday "B-
day" and promising excitement
in front of the Library at noon.
The sign was painted in green
and bore the emblem of the Forest Club.
At about 11:30 the Ubyssey
received an anonymous telephone call informing us of the
proposed wetting of a tow-truck
driver,-who was said to be held
in captivity.
And at about 12:40, two hundred foresters, yelling and shouting cheers, came toward the
Library from the direction of the
Forestry and Geology Building.
They stormed past the lily
pond    and    down    toward    the
Brock. They poured into the
building and drew out, from
somewhere in the depths, a scow-
ling, struggling, frightened
Pete Meekison came running
out demanding that the driver
be released.
Meekison had been taken in by
the white coveralls with "Busters" in red block letters on the
ents back. The name was pasted
onto a service station attendent's
uniform, a usually reliable source
informed the Ubyssey.
The "Buster" driver was escorted to the pond and was dunked.
He convinced everybody that
he was scared and mad. But after he got out of the pond he
headed straight for the Forestry
and Geology Building.    •
He was preceded, followed,
and flanked by foresters who
asked him what it was like now
that the tables were turned.
"You deserve it Buster. That'll
teach you to take away our cars",
came the cat-calls.
And "John" glared at them.
He even headed toward one fellow as if to start trouble. The
greenshirt staged a strategic

huts, will contain facilities readily accessible to all faculties and
would tend to draw the students
together. The proposed site also

For the "nth' time a constitutional amendment to abolish
the fall general meeting will be
brought up before the students.
This motion is becoming as traditional a procedure at general
meetings as reading of the min-
bly are not being taken away.
Instead, a useless ritual is discarded.
Another perennial amendment
to be brought up is the engineers proposal to revise the allocation of the voting powers. As
usual, they propose '2 votes for
each of their own faculty members, half a vote to members of
faculties with an enrolment
greater than 2,000, and one vote
each for members of the remaining faculties.

capacity which is fast becoming
traditional, are going to pack the

It's up to the students. Do you
want to pay $350 dollars a year
foif a meeting which almost nobody attends and at which nothing is accomplished?
In the fall, so close to the beginning of the term nothing of
importance has happened to warrant a regular general meeting.

"Varsity" Criticised
For Gag Issue 'Death'
TORONTO (CUP)—The University of Toronto student
newspaper, The Varsity was censured by the council last week
for poor taste in its annual gag issue, which reported the
death of one of its reporters.
Council also approved a motion that a member of a Toronto
daily newspaper, The Globe and
Mail, be asked to investigate The
Varsity organization and policy
and report to the publications
commission with recommendations by March 8.
Objections were raised about
a story which reported that Varsity columnist and photographer
Al Walker had been killed as a
result of a student prank.
Walker, the front page story-
stated, had slipped and cracked

that some of the students apparently thought it was a good idea,
and phoned Walker to attend.
The next day the paper ran
what was purported to be Walker's last colunm, on the front
page as a tribute. A press wire
was also sent to the national
headquarters of the Canadian
University Press in hopes that
the story would be sent across
the country.

New Student Building-^
We Need It
"The purpose of a student union building is to be a center
of  student  activity."
Brock Hall does not serve m that capacity now, nor will
it ever if the administration adhe'res to the building plan that
it is now promulgating.
At present the building is the haven for Artsmen, Commercemen and Lawyers. Its inhabitants see Engineers, Aggies,
and Foresters only through the sporadic raids that these groups
make on the hall in search of the tricky blue-blazer boys or
the elusive frosh. They see many of the other faculties only
rarely also. The Aggies take care of Home Ec and the Engineers entertain the Nurses, so they say. The Brock types rarely
s£e them.
1    This situation will Worsen as the campus grows away from,
the Brock Hall area.
The administration plans to expand its facilities to the
south and to the west. Thus, on its present site the union building would be largely a perimeter installation, and hence, would
not service the majbr' area of student population.
If something is hot doiie about this situation, this university
will dissolve into a cluster of colleges having little or nothing to
do witih each other. The university would no longer be a homogeneous whole (a condition which it at least approaches how)
but rather would disintegrate into a disunified conglomeration
of faculties
It is possible to do something about it, though, and it will
be a first-class instance of criminal negligence, if something
is not done.
There 4s little-question as to what the solution should be.
We must build a new student union building.
In this way several of the problems plaguing the students
of this university will be solved in one'operation. By erecting
a, new building in a centraHocation (the planning committee
has selected the location of the medical huts) the line dividing
the so-called "Brock types" from those who inhabit the "other
side of the campus" would be eliminated.
At the same time, the building could include adequate
foesd services, erasing the vexing problem of finding a decent
meal on this campus.
Further, a new building in the suggested location would
eliminate the crowding that is evident in the Brock and would
provide adequate parking—a facility that the present building
sadly lacks.
To all this moist be added the fact that the administration
plans to close East Mall to auto traffic in future development.
This development would make the present building practically inaccessible.
It seems evident from all these signs that a new union
building is vital to the future of this university.
The fact that it is impossible for the Brock to be expanded
to handle the expected future student population of 20,000
must be the clinching factor.
To ignore these sign,s and neglect the immediate need for
a new building would be sheer folly.
For this reason we ask you to go to the General Meeting
tomorrow and support the resolution calling for the meeting to
ehlloTse the idea of constructing a new student union building
on the, central site now occupied by the medical huts.
We recommend also that you consider the idea of having
the present twenty-four dollar AMS fee stand. If this is done,
the five dollars that has been'going to the Development Fund
will be diverted to other student projects. Three dollars of this •
could go into a general building fund which would give those
working on a new student building something to work with.
So, we say, gcrto the General Meeting and show the Council that you want something ddhe -about getting1 this campus
an adequate student union building.
Don't let the conservative element stop this university from
making progress or we will soon be lagging b&M&'Easf rMP
lingham U. in student facilities.
Nuclear Petition
Dear Sir:
Your readers will have appreciated Professor D o r e' s
comments on the petition to
the Canadian' Government by
members of the Faculty, and
his giving the text of this document. I am writing in case it
might prove equally of interest
to consider the view of one of
those who have not given it
active support.
The assurance expressed in
the petition that a satisfactory
inspection system could soon
be devised after nuclear tests
had been stopped, though perhaps justifiable, appears to be
somewhat of an anticipation of
events. In the present critical
situation, a halt in the develop-
met of nuclear weapons is to
be hoped for only when a satisfactory system has been agreed
upon, tested, and put into operation. Pressure should undoubtedly be brought to bear
upon all governments, and particularly" that of the Soviet Union, to accept a fool-proof system of inspection as the essential preliminary to any measures of disarmament.
Few would disagree with the
view that disarmament is the
key to any peaceful settlement. However, it should always be borne in mind that
armaments are the symptom of
the disease; and that insecurity
is the disease itself: if the
world were to get rid of some
of its arms now, it would feel
less, not more, secure. General disarmament there must
be; but before it can come
abOut, some means of preserving international seeurity must
first have been brought into being—whether it be a much
stronger United Nations or a
new international institution.
The petition does not make it
clear that disarmament is less a
method of creating and preserving security than a result of security having been created.
Finally, success in international negotiations depends to
some degree on the diplomat's
ability to take a firm line and
to have plenty of room for
manoeuvre. From this point of
view it would perhaps have
been preferable if the petition
had contained some expression
of confidence in the continuing, efforts of the Western negotiators, to balance appeals
which might tend to limit them
in the conference-room.
The petition expresses the
universal wish of Canadians
and all right-thinking nations,
and there will be few indeed
who do not wish its success.
Its very general scope, however, has perhaps been responsible for lessening its effectiveness in the eyes of a number
of members of the Faculty.

Mutual Profit
Dear Sir:
Too many seem to consider
it a current vogue, indeed, a
sacred duty, to press for the
recognition of the Chinese
People's Republic. Had these
ladies and gentlemen intelligently considered the validity
of their demands, they would
quickly have realized how
groundless their stand is, from
a logical viewpoint especially.
The majority of those advocating Canada's recognition of
the Chinese Pebple's Republic
seem to think that merely because a'" nStib'iin is'" peopled ^by
some six nuridred'millions, it is
an automatic moral obligation
to exchange ambassadors with
her: Herein lies the misconception; for there is no moral significance behind an ambas-
adorial exchange. All it implies
is that two countries have
found it mutually profitable,
politically, militarily, or economically, to have closer ties.
No country is bound, therefore,
to exchange ambassadors with
another unless it deems the
procedure beneficial".
Now, would an opening of
Canada-China relations be mutually profitable? China certainly gains, if only in sorely
needed foodstuffs and mineral
imports. But what of Canada?
Even in 1948 China imported
from this country thirty times
as much as she exported. Since
then, China's population
growth alone would have considerably widened the import-
export gap. To balance trade,
China would have to pay cash
for many of her imports, or go
into debt. The former is practically impossible; the latter
cannot profit Canada. Politically, recognition could serve
only to embarrass Canada and
her allies; for, having recognized China, this country
would be obliged to support,
or, at least, cease opposing
China's candidature in the
United Nations. And since
Canada depends economically
on her allies, such a policy
could prove disastrous.
Canada, therefore, has nothing whatever to gain by an ambassadorial exchange with the
Chinese People's Republic; nor
has she, in any event, an obligation to so do—except perhaps to pacify some thought*
less and seemingly irate citizens.

"Godiva Fortress . .."
Dear Sir:
A word of commendation is
due for your article of Thursday the 10th entitled Frosh
Hate Red. It correctly reported the events which led up to
Thursday's clash between the
Engineers and the frosh.
Now a word of condemnation of Friday's "reporting" of
Thursday's clash. (I use the
word "reporting" very loosely.) The article Godiva's Fortress Crumbled By Awesome
Frosh Attack must have been
written by an irate freshman
—say Frank Findenigg-^or by
a typical pubster Who received
his information by word Of
mouth. It is a sad day when
The Ubyssey becomes a frosh
mouthpiece! Do they threaten
you! Or are they you?
The obviously slanted reporting is climaxed (in the first
article) by a summary "of final
results" which states that 18
Engineers and 6 frosh were
dunked. All during the battle
there were at least six frosh
kept swimming in our big hydraulic tank for 45 minutes,
while our small tank was running at capacity. I would guess
that 40 (40) frosh partook of
our pools while only two (2)
Engineers were dragged to the
A typical example of your
"reporting" in Friday's paper
is contained in Fearless "Fink"
Findenigg's letter to the editor
(the above being unable to
sound off in his usual manner,
wrote a letter instead) which
states that "Fire and hoses and
red shirts could not keep the
Frosh out?' The fire hose was

few frosh who managed to enter -the -building -in -disguise
only to get depanted, the only
other frosh entering the building were being carried to their

the other "reporter" who
wrote the main article come
out from under their Brock
lounge tables and watch. -

Medieval Lynching
Dear Sir:
Mr. G. B. Livingston's letter
in the Ubyssey of March 4 was
a cheap piece of propaganda
for VCF rather than a sensible
reply to my letter. He did it
well and without paying for
First of all he did not understand the point I was trying
to make. His criticism was
awfully irrelevant and his language was not at all "humble".
He 'implicitly branded me a
fascist because 1 tried to expose the hypocrisy of men like
Mr. Livingston. Secondly sermons must not be preached
through The Ubyssey, which is
meant for intelligent writing.
In my letter I expressed my
"outrage" at the way the engineers degraded Lord Budah.
Would they or for that matter
Mr. Livingston like to see a
cartoon of Christ with slide-
rule sticking out of his ears
and a chain tied to his God
knows what? We should com-"
pare this cartoon of Budah
with last year's goon edition
and ask ourselves why we do
not respect the religious sentiments of others as we do our
own. The answer is that we
do not have to beg money from
the Budhists; so we do not
mind offending their faith. Let
me assure Mr. Livingston that
personally I respect every religion and its followers. (There
being no "heathens" or "pagans" for me, and I am not a
Budhist.) I have a friend who
prays to Budha as we pray to
Christ. He was not at all happy
about those carloons but he
was a lot more "humble" than
last year's "outraged" Christian Livingstons who did every
thing short of medieval lynching.
Despite Mr. Livingston's
boring stone-age reasoning I
still believe that only those
people who are intellectually
insecure or rather inferior
make much ado about the so-
called "outrage". They are the
future wheel-barrow drivers.
Others would have more exacting jobs to do. I am r,eally
sorry if you, Mr. Livingston
belong to the first-category. I
know it is hard on ithe imagination but let us face it with
"humility" and a spirit of ser
vice to   HIM.
Medievally yours,
Pretty Young Frosh
Dear Sir:
What-Oh and three cheers!
So the engineers have finally
found somebody to play with
them. Gosh! It must be fun
to get all wet, and to hit each
other, and to use the fire-protection equipment that is supplied to their hovel . . . Gee-
Willikers! Those engineers
have finally found somebody
their own age.
. . . I guess it's because we
have a pretty young Frosh
class this year eh??

Russia's Intourist'
Editor's Note: This is the first in a series on travel in the
Soviet Union, written for CUP by Paul Unterberg.
U has been said that in Italy there is Mafia, and in the
Soviet Union, Intourist. This comparison may be somewhat
incorrect, for Intourist appears to be not only less resourceful, but more expensive.
The traveller to the Soviet Union, will be asked to pay
from $15 to $30 a day; plus transportation, plus extras. For
this he will be supplied with a comfortable room, and rather
poor meals. On occasion he will' be supplied with a guide who
will spout a list of figures indicating the percentage rise in
Soviet flaxseed production over the base year 1913, or the per
hectare yield of newly developed alfalfa crops, which neither
the visitor nor the guide have seen. But as long as the visitor
remains off the beaten track he will probably be subjected to
only a few routine inefficiencies. % t
However, when you get out of the rut and want to do
something which there is no plain and clear-cut precedent, you
,may have a problem on your hands. Coming home from Burma
my wife and I had decided that if possible we should go
through Soviet Central Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Accordingly, we went to the Soviet Embassy in Delhi and
asked for a transit visa. One of the questions of the form which*
we had to fill out referred to the type of transportation desired. To this we replied that we would fly to the beginning of
the southern branch of the Trans-Siberian railway at Tashkett,
and continue from there to Moscow by train. They said this
was all right.
We were pleasantly surprised by the rapidity with which
they granted our visas. A few days later we landed in Tashkent. When we were finished with the simple formalities of im-
had not already purchased our tickets to Moscow. We replied
tha we weren't going by air, but by train,
migration and customs, an airlines employee asked us if we
'Oh, but that's impossible," she said. "You have to go by
"Because the regulations don't permit foreigners to travel
by train."
"But the Soviet Embassy in Delhi said We could go to Moscow by train."
"I'll check with the authorities if you like, but I'd suggest
you buy your air tickets right away, or ypu'U miss tonight's
"Thanks, but we intend to go by train."
Half an hour later she came back to tell us that it was too
late that evening to reach any of the higher authorities. We
-would have to wait until morning, unless of course we wanted
[to take tonight's plane. No, we didn't. We were told we would
have to stay at the airport hotel overnight. This turned out to
..be- enormously expensive and far beyond our means. We were
warned, and not very politely, that if we didn't like we could
To their considerable and evident astonishment we picked
up our bags and left, taking the local bus into town where some
friendly Russians showed us the way to the railway station.
As soon as we showed our faces at the wicket, the woman behind it slammed it shut and hurried out a side door, From a
bystander we discovered that the next train for Moscow didn't
leave until the following morning, so we decided to spend the
night in the railway station waiting room. On our way we
were stopped by a couple of plainclothesmen, accompanied
by the tickat seller and some uniformed police.' They asked for
our passports, which they looked at and returned to us. Then
they asked us to come back to the airport. We_continued towards the waiting room, with the police trailing behind. The
door to the room was blocked by another policeman who was
told to refuse us entry. So we sat down and made ourselves as
comfortable as possible in front of the station.
The plainclothesman—he claimed to be an Intourist official—whose name we later discovered to be Litzky, again
asked to see our passports. Instead of looking at them, he put
them in his jacket pocket and said they would be returned to
us at the airport. I explained, in English and Russian, that a
passport is private property, and he was welcome to look at it,
but had no right to put it in his pocket. This seemed to have
little effect upon him, and he yelled that we MUST go back
to the airport. I kept asking for my passport, in an increasingly
louder,voice. All this yelling soon drew a crowd. As it gathered
I noticed that Litzky was growing ill at ease. The bigger it
became the more uncomfortable he looked. He apparently
didn't know how to handle a situation in which someone dared
to talk back to him. The crowd enjoyed this enormously. As I
yelled louder he suddenly handed back the passport and
walked quickly away.
The next morning we were taken to the Intourist officee
where the manager ordered us to buy air tickets to Moscow. We
explained that the Soviet Embassy in Delhi had given us permission to go by train. But he said we should buy the air
tickets or be shipped back to Kabul by force. We asked his
name, and when he refused to give it I went outside and received it from one of the secretaries.
"Mr. Abramov," I said when I returned, "use force to
send us back to Kabul. We'll see what Moscow says when they
hear of it."
"No, no, don't get excited," he replied. "We'll see what we
can do." He said he would go over to the Uzbek Foreign Ministry  to see about  obtaining  special permission.
It took two hours, but when he got back you wouldn't
(have recognized him. He was all smiles, and the politest official
I've had the, pleasure to meet in a long time. Yes, permission
ihad been granted. His' own private car with chauffeur took us
<to the station. Fruit, and provisions were acquired to tide us
over the.-3H, clay trip.
Dr. C. Stern
To Address
Fifty of Canada's top scientists
will meet at the University of
British Columbia March 16 to
18, for the annual Genetics Society of Canada conference.
Among the delegates to the
three-day gathering will be one
of the world's leading geneticists, Dr. Curt Stern, of the University of Califotnia and a past
president of the Genetics Society of America.
Canadian delegates will in
elude Dr. Harold B. Newcombe,
head of the biology- division of
Atomic Energy of Canada, Chalk
River; Dr. Norma Ford-Walker,
professor of human genetics at
the University of Toronto, and
Dr. Margaret W. Thompson, director of • the heredity counselling service at the University of
Prof. Stern will open the conference on Wednesday, March
16, with an address sponsored
by the Leon and Thea Koener
Foundation. He will speak in
room 2000 of the biological
sciences building on the subject
"Man and his chromosomes."
On Thursday, March 17, there
will be morning and afternoon
sessions on plant, human and
animal genetics. Dr. Stern will
give the fifth Huskins Memorial
Lecture at a banquet in the
On Friday, March 18, the conference will hear 12 papers on
cytology, the branch of biology
dealing with the structure and
function of cells.
Two special events will be
held in conjunction with the
genetics conference sponsored by
the post-graduate education com-,
mittee at the Vancouver General
Hospital and UBC medical faculty and extension department.
The first of these will be a
public lecture in room 106 of
UBC's Buchanan building on
Friday (March 18) by Dr. Newcombe. His topic will be "Genetics, radiation and people."
On Saturday, (March 19) a
special one-day symposium entitled "Human genetics in the
practice of medicine," will be
held at the Vancouver General
Hospital starting at 9 am. Genetic counselling and congenital
malformation will be two of
the' topics discussed.
The degeneration of modern
youth is not a new subject; the
young man of today, we are
told, is immoral, unprincipled,
ill-educated, cowardly—in-short,
decadent. For years, upholders
of this view have been pointing
out evidence supporting their
claims. However, no-one, as far
as I am aware, has yet pointed
the accusing finger at one of
the most pernicious practices
currently prevalent at this university. I refer to that method
of expressing disapproval known
as hissing.
Now, the basic objection to
hissing is that it is underhand—
it can be indulged in practically
without fear of detecton. This
is especially true in the classroom. Disapproval of the professor produces a storm of sound
like a thousand tires punctured
in unison; yet every face, with
teeth clenched and lips parted,
wears an expression of angelic
innoncence. "Who, me Sir? Oh,
no, Sir! The guy next to me,
It is painfully obvious that,
if we have not lost the courage
of our convictions, we have certainly lost the courage to express
them. What happened to the
virile open boo? Wheres the
manly art of the Bronx raspberry? Gone, alas, with the departed manliness of the Canadian university student.
Talent In Medicine
There must be talent in the
Faculty of Medicine.
Miss Dorothy Somerset, Head
of UBC's Department of Theatre, said that she would do all
she could, short of giving financial support, to see that the Medical Students who staged their
skit Friday in the Auditorium
were encouraged to make it an'
annual feature. ,
'Esprit De Corps"
Dear Sir:
In this period of sick comedians, it is certainly too bad
that the students of UBC must
"follow the crowd" and have a
sick attitude towards campus
athletics. In general I am referring to, the lack of student
fans at UBC games and more
particularly to the total lack of
support which the student body
has given the UBC Thunderettes basketball team.

Canadian women's team in the
last 20 years"—has had only
two close games all season.
Both games were four point
wins over UBC.
In spite of Richmond's far
greater experience, superior
height, and possibly better
talent, the eight Thunderettes
have never stopped trying.
Last Wednesday your team
playing the first game of the
finals before their usual supporters—a few campus friends,
and the odd regular supporting
parent—gave Richmond a battle all the way and lost by a.
mere 4 points. This^ with several players sick or injured but'
still giving it all they had—
for the university!
The least you can do is come
out and chee» for a bunch of
kids who may not be the best
players in Canada but certainly try the hardest!

Encumbent Horseplay
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Re Mr. P. R. Strachan's Letter
It seems to me that far too
many persons are perching
themselves atop a pedestal and
are condescendingly viewing
the "mass" of engineers below. Could it be that 'they are
trying to seek attention in
their own- way by decrying the
group activities of engineers?
If this be their motivation
which I have no recourse but
to helieve, then let them use us
as their butt of scorn.
As to the comment on our
child-like mannerisms and desire for attention, may I point
out that pride in one's chosen
profession and accompanying
acts of horseplay do not suggest
in any \yay that we are a hunch
of irascible children and "attention seekers". Certainly an
intellectual atmosphere is paramount in university life, but
should it prevent us from indulging in pranks? Just because we fail to don white shirt
and tie, and strut about with
an aura of dignity, are we intellectually inferior?
We in engineering truly respect and admire one who
• achieves distinction in our profession or in any field of endeavour, perhaps moreso than
in any otter faeulty, for ©ur
profession is built upon cooperation.
I thank the author for his
acknowledgment of our enthusiasm, though it is not
"forced" as he suggests. We are
aware of it and proud of it!
Should the engineers, one of
the few groups with any lustre
on - campus, lose grasp of it,
then we too would* become
stagnant as is the case with
much of the remainder of the
campus. Perish the thought of
this ever happening!
I would suggest that those
who are inclined to level criticism against our faculty, for
want of a better avocation,
should apply themselves more
diligently to their own studies*
and leave us be with our pride
in our vocation and its encunv
bent "horseplay".
Engineeringly  Yours,
A. Oftenberger,

Williams To Head
Newest Department
One of Canada's most distinguished Dermatologists, Dr.
Donald H. Williams, has been appointed head of a new department of continuing medical education at the University of
British ColittHb-ia.
UBC's pr^ideht?\D«^ N. A. M.j
MacKenzie, said tbe new depart-
^rnent would start" Operations on
July 1 as a joint program between the faculty of medicine
and the University extension department.
Dr. Williams will give up his
Vancouver practise to head the
new department, according to.|
Dr. J. F. McCreary, dean of the
faculty of medicine at UBC. "We
naturally count ourselves very
fortunate to have obtained the
services of a man of Dr. Williams' calibre to head this new
project," Dr. McCreary added.
The purpose of the new department will be three-fold.
Dean McCreary said. Its first
task will be to work with various medical organizations to
expand and coordinate the
courses for practising physicians.
A second function of the department, Dean McCreary said,
Vould be" to attempt to improve
•internship and residency training programs by working with
the hospitals involved.
Finally, Dean McCreary said,
the department would establish
multi-discipline courses to prepare doctors for advanced degrees in medicine.
D. Williams' first task, Dean
McCreary said, would be to visit
a number of universities in the
United States where successful
departments of continuing medical education have beeen established.
-_We wish io apologize to all
lhe    students    expecting    lo
sleep all day Wednesday.
Only the 11:30 lectures are
lo be cancelled tomorrow so
that you can get out lo the
general meeting in lhe Armouries al 11:30.
Dr. Williams has been associated with UBC since 1940 as a
lecturer in preventive medicine,
education and social, work. He
was appointed clinical associate
professor in the UBC medical
school when the faculty of medicine  was formed in  1950.
He is a graduate of the' University of Manitoba, where he
received the degrees of bachelor
of science and medicine in 1931,
and the University of Minnesota,
which granted him the degree of
master of science in 1937.
Dr. Williams had a brilliant
undergraduate career, winning
the Isbister scholarship for the
highest aggregate marks in medicine at the University of Manitoba in each of his undergraduate years.
On graduation Dr. Williams
was awarded the University gold
medal for the highest standing
in the first four years in medicine at Manitoba atid the Chown
Prize and Gold Medal in both
surgery  and medicine.
Following his graduation he
lectured at Manitoba, the University of London and Johns
Hopkins University before going
to' the University of Minnesota
on a Mayo Foundation Fellowship
During World War II Dr. Williams was a lieutenant-colonel
in the Royal Canadian Army
Medical Corps and acted as director of the National Venereal
Control program for all the
armed forces.
He has also acted as a consultant and advisor on venereal
disease programs for the Anglo-
American Caribbean Commission, the World Health Organization and the Canadian government's departments of veterans' affairs and health and welfare.
DR. D. D. MYERS, P.Eng., hew Dean of the Faculty of
Applied Science at U.B.C, received his certificate of registration with the Association of Professional Engineers
of B.C. from president H. P. J. Moorhead, P.Eng. The
occasion was a dinner of the past-presidents of the Association at which Dr. Meyers was guest of honour. He recently arrived from Australia to take up his new post as
successor to Dr. H. C. Gunning, P.Eng.
Alberta Students
nStorm'f Legislature
EDMONTON (CUP)—More than 400  University of Alberta students marched on the provincial legislature Thursday
afternoon demanding construction of resident facilities.
The   spontaneous   demonstra
tion was the first mass march
of university students in Alberta
Carrying signs, and marching
in orderly fashion, the students
moved at least a mile from the
campus to the ■ government
grounds. In front of the legislature they called for appearance
of   government   ministers.
When none appeared, they
flowed into the foyer of the government building calling for
Provincial Treasurer E. W. Hin-
man,  and found him.
The night before, Mr. Hinman
had told the legislature that no
new residences would be built
at the university in the fiscal
year. The last official residence
was  built in 1914.
Several students asked if the
government planned residence
construction in the next two
yars. Mr. Himan replied that
unless residences can be financed by outside sources, "The government will study another
plan." He also told the students
of the benefits which they receive from the government.
One student asked Mr. Hinman if the government considered the distribution of Social
Credit  "dividends"   to be more

The world war mjade a contribution to the realm of music
in discarded war supply gasoline drums. From an experiment
for tonal effect on the end of
one of these drums, back in 1940,
evolved the musical steel drums
which have become the national
instruments  of Trinidad.
Music of a steel drum closely
resembles that of a marimba
and Tanges from folk songs to
adaptations   of the   classics.
A group of UBC students from
Trinidad will give a performance with these instruments at
the International Concert to be
presented by International House
in the University Auditorium at
8:15 p.m. on March  18 and 19.
The steel-band known as the
"Moonlighters" will be comprised of six players under the
direction of Wilson Wong-Moon.
The' drums range in size from
one small enough to be carried
in the hand to those over three
feet in length.
At least eleven other countries
will be represented in the program covering instrumentalists,
vocalists, and dancers. Some of
these are: Scotland, Estonia,
Spain, Indonesia, The Philipines,
Peru, West Indies, Ireland and
important than an adequately
equipped university. Alberta's
Social Credit government spent
$21,000,000 on "citizens dividends" before halting the program last year.
Although the Alberta demonstration was orderly throughout,
many of Mr. Hinman's remarks
were greeted with boos and
derision. When the provincial
treasurer had finished speaking,
students asked for an opposition
member to answer the same
questions. As a result of the
last provincial election, however,
Alberta has only four opposition
members, none of whom had
arrived for the afternoon session.
The demonstration was a spontaneous one. Before marching ■
to the legislature, the participants paraded around the campus, recruiting marchers from
"residences  and eating  places.

Laurier Trophy
EDMONTON (CUP) — Sherbrooke University won the MacDonald Laurier Trophy as Canada's top university debating
team Friday night, in the NFCUS
sponsored championship debates
at the University of Alberta.
Three bi-lingual judges unanimously awarded the French-
speaking team of Julien Aubert
and Robert Normand the victory
over Irwin Cotler and Gordon
Echenberg  of  McGill.
Sherbrooke took the affirmative side of the argument "Resolved: That surrender to the
USSR is preferable to risking
the destruction of humanity in
war." Thursday night the University of British Columbia, and
Saint Dunstan's (PEI) teams
were eliminated in the semifinals.
Sherbrooke's major argument
was that life* itself is man's
most valuable possession. "Life"
said Normand, "is the first good
condition for all others." McGill
countered that life is a condition
of all animals, and that desire
to adhere to ideals should set
men apart.
In summing up Cotler said,
"We would rather die on our
feet, than live on our knees."
Another point which counted
for Sherbrooke was that the
Western capitalist system is not
perfect and that Communism is
not as evil as Western propaganda suggests.
McGill replied that while
capitalism is not perfect it is
"fundamentally perfectable."
McGill, whose seriti-final victory
Thursday turned largerly on the
technical definition of "risk"
used the same technicality to
advantage Friday, when Sherbrooke argued that any international war fought today would
annihilate mankind. McGill re-
njinded Sherbrooke that the
topic of the debate concerned
annihiliation as a risk not a
Program Proposed For
Field of Recreation
The first full-time undergraduate program in Canada to train
students for work in the field
of recreation will start in the
school of physical education at
• the University of British Columbia in September, President
!N. A. M. MacKenzie announced
The Senate has authorized the
school to change its name to
the school of" physical education
and recreation, the president
Object of the new program
will be to train "general practitioners" in the field of recreation, according to Professor
Robert Osborne, director of the
UBC school.
"There are now more than
275 recreation commissions in
B.C. alone," Prof. Osborne said,
"and there is a need for trained
people to develop community
Students   will   take  about   20
per cent of their course work
in professional recreation and
the balance in the social sciences.
All will be. r required to take a
fundamental course in either
music, drama Or art.
"In this way," Prof. Osborne
said, "we will turn out students
who will understand the cultural as well as' athletic resources of the community and
will appreciate the significance
of  all   leisure   time activities."
Field work for the new program will be carried out in cooperation with the Vancouver
board of parks and recreation.
There are few other campuses
in North America which have
such a wide variety of resources
for carrying out such a program,
Prof. Osborne said. "We conceive of recreation as being much
broader than just programs of
sport and UBC will provide us
with a unique laboratory for
training   students," -he  said.

Club displays, Publicity, Traffic,
Guilding, and Special Events
are only a few of the sub-committees.
This is the first time that the
film's promoters have sponsored
a special student day. Cost will

It took the author, Lew Wallace, seven years to do the research and writing of the book,
which was published by Harpers
in ,1880. From then until the present time the novel has never
been out' of print.
The theme of "Ben-Hur" is
both spiritual and religious. It
emphasizes brotherhood, freedom
of thought and the spiritual verities.
"Ben-Hur" had been planned
five years before any scenes were
shot. More than 15,000 sketches
were made in the Art Department for the 300 sets that had
to be built.
More than 1,000,000 separate
items were assembled by the
Property Department to decorate
the sets. Materials from the four
corners of the earth were obtained for this huge operation.
The film went into production
on May 20th, 1958. Eight months
later the final scenes were completed and editing began.

Federation said yesterday that,

Earlier, Goulston attributed
the Liberal victories to, "growing dissillusionment among college students with the Diefen-
baker government and to the
hard work of the campus Liberals in the model parliament
Out of 905 seats at the 15 universities th§ Liberals hold 326,
the Conservatives 292, CCF 113,
Social Credit 26, Communist 6.
The, splinter parties restricted
to local.campi were: IDIOT 24,
Universal Natcrecon 21, Democratic Socialist IS, Chris&an
Atheist 15, Canadian Fascists
12, Neo Radical 10, Independent
9, National Federal 7, Liberal
Progressive 7, National Action
9, and Canada First 3.
So far the Liberals have gained victories at Memorial Dalhousie, St. F. X, Mount Allison,
Manitoba, Alberta, and UBC.
The Conservatives have won at
Western, Queen's Carleton, McGill, and New Brunswick, while
the CCF have won at Toronto.
At Acadia the Democratic Socialist won out—but have now
been replaced with a P.C. and
Liberal government headed by
Grits even though the Tories
had more seats. Universal Natcrecon, a reform party, runs the
student parliament at Saskatchewan.
McGill is the only Quebec university to hold a model parliament, and in Ontario, Ottawa,
McMaster, Ryerson, and Assumption do not hold such elections.
Goulston added that it was
particularly significant that the
Liberals have won three of the
four elections in the West, and
in the fourth (Saskatchewan)
the Liberals beat all other national parties while placing second to an independent one.
However, there seems to be
some dispute between the two
national headquarters as to who
has won the most seats. CU^F
claims that it has won nine
victories, including a junior college with 204 voters in the last
election, and the Maritimes
Model Parliament, Where seats
were alloted according to campus election results. The Progressive Conservative Student
Federation does not accept the
model parliament as a victory.
The Tories also lay claim to
seven victories—one of which is
a high school—and this total is
not accepted by CULF, as the
Grits are university federation
which does not serve all students as dpes the P.C. organization.
^Friends of Library'
Seek Additional Funds
The Friends of the Library at the University of British
Columbia have announced plans for an appeal for $50,000 annually to purchase research material for the UBC library.
The campaign this year will
be conducted during the spring
and summer and will culminate
with the official opening of \he
new wing of the University library in October.
The Friends of the Library,
an organization formed in 1956
to encourage support of the UBC
library, has already purchased
two notable collections of books.
Last year they presented a
45,000-volume collection of Chinese books and manuscripts to
the UBC library and in 1958
they purchased a 20,000-volume
collection of Canadiana from the
estate of Montreal bookseller
Thomas Murray.
The announcement regarding
the 1960 campaign is in line
with a recommendation made by
librarian Neal Harlow in his annual report to the senate for the
1958-59 term.
In his report Mr. Harlow said
Agatha Christie's
Award Winning
For Students And Staff OnlvJ
3i3Q & 8:00 Tues., March 15     |
that non-University funds for
the acquisition of special materials should be actively sought
from outside sources, preferably
on an annual basis.
Funds collected during the
coming appeal will be used as a
reserve to purchase special material in a given area or used as
opportunities to acquire material occur.
Mr. Harlow said alumni, library-minded friends and users,
industries and firms, organizations and clubs and interested
persons in and outside the province would be quietly approached, v
"We are not planning to ring
doorbells or make a noisy appeal," Mr. Harlow added. "Annual grants will be emphasized
in order to assure that important
research collections can be picked off for graduate use here
whenever they appear."
UBC alumni will be urged to
contribute to the fund by earmarking their gifts to the Alums-
ni annual giving program which
will begin in April.
