U. of Toronto
Kicks Out
Fraternities
The University of Toronto last night officially severed
any connections with the 38 fraternities on its campus, and
stated it held the power to expel students who belonged to
such associations.
Council To Probe Use of
UBC Recreational Facili
." A campus-wide inquiry will
be held during the next three
weeks to compile facts- and figures on student uses of athletic
and recreational facilities.
, Beginning this week, all students except those in the dormitories and residences will be
telephoned. Students in the
dorm and residences will be
given questionaires through
their counsellors. "
The inquiry will include questions concerning both existing
and proposed facilities. Councillor John Goodwin, member of
the Athletic and Recreational
Facilities Committee, hopes to
find out what space is available,
what space is used now, and
jwhat space is required or desired.
The committee especially requests cooperation from the students. For complete success in
this inquiry, 100 percent participation is neces'sary.
The committee is studying
use of facilities for Etxramural
and Intramural activity, curri-
cular activity (required P.E.,
College of Education, and School
of Physical Education, and
CASUAL, UNORGANIZED recreation. The government is also
reportedly planning a new fac-

The National Student Day
edition of the Ubyssey will
appear, all twelve pages of ii,
on Thursday.
We are printing 40,000 issues (!), of which 33,000 will
find their way downtown in
an effort to make the population of Vancouver better acquainted with our university.
But we need help, we need

ulty called the Department of
Recreation. A great deal of emphasis will be placed on the casual, unorganized activities, in
which, Goodwin feels, most students are interested.
Students will be asked to give
the approximate number of
hours per week, and weeks per
year, in which they are engaged
in various activities. The list of
activities includes everything
from ice activities, sailing, and
archery, to ping-pong, judo, and
pool.
Again, special emphasis is
placed upon things which students do in their spare time, informally at home, and on weekends.
The big question is, would
students play these various
sports if facilities were available at UBC? Goodwin, and
committee members Ian Stewart (MAA president) and Inge
Andreen (WAD) secretary think
they will.
A statement of policy issued
by President Claude Bissell
stated, as "erroneous," the common belief that fraternities have
any official position in or relationship to the University of
Toronto. He also said that a
student who does belong to a
fraternity can be told, "he cannot stay in the university."
The statement came from
Caput, the senior disciplinary
body of the university, which is
composed of the president, and
tjie heads of the federated universities, colleges, and faculties
of U of T.
Almost 10 per cent of the 14,-
822 students at Toronto are
members of '- the 30 fraternities
for men, and eight for women.
In addition 9,000 graduates are
fraternity members Dr. Bissell
is not a fraternity member.
The body also laid down
other policies:
* all reference to frats Will
be stricken from U of T publications and the words, "University
of Toronto," will no longer appear on fraternity stationery,
* premises occupied by fraternities, and used for fraternity
purposes are in no sense university residences,
* fraternities must now pay
the full advertising rate Of $150
a page in the Toronto year book
as compared to the student rate
of $16 a page formerly available to them,
* the privilege of being a
member of the university carries obligations enforceable by
disciplinary actions.
Dr. Bissell said that the statement constituted, "a definition
of the university community, and
established the jurisdiction of
the supreme disciplinary body."
He added, "We have no intention of dictating to fraternities, or trying to control them.
But we do have control over
every   undergraduate,   and   we
are now in a position to say,
if we wish, that he is quite
free to belong to a fraternity,
but, if he does, he cannot stay in
the university."
In Canada all church sponsored universities, o r French -
language universities have no
frats. Queen's has had none
since the 1930's, and McMaster
and Carleton do not have any.
Dalhousie has no relations with
them, whereas UBC has close relations.
Election This
Wednesday
The voting for the office of
First Member at Large of the
Students' Council" will take
place Wednesday, February 10th
between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00
p.m. Any student wishing to
vote must present his or her
Alma Mater Society Students
Card. Under no circumstances
will;a student be allowed to vote
without the right card. Library
cards are NOT permissable.
I would urge all students to
acquaint themsleves with the
candidates and their platforms.
The opportunity of hearing eaeh
slate is provided each Monday
prior to the elections. The fact
that so few are interested in this
election is frightening and discouraging. The opportunity to
serve the Alma Mater Society
and| University of British
Columbia is an honour and a
privilege which should not be~
cast aside lightly. If you are
capable, run for office. (There
are nine positions left). If you
do not feel you are qualified,
vote for those of your fellow
students who are willing to
stand for office and are, in your
opinion, capable and qualified.
Jim Horsman,
Returning Officer
A.M.S. Elections
Second Slate Nominations Now Open
By FRED FLETCHER
Sixteen members of the blue
blazer brigade meet every Monday night to have a leisurely
dinner and figure out what to do
with your money. (Remember
the 24 extra dollars you got
nicked for in your first term
fees?)
These blue-clad campus commanders are known officially
as Students' Councillors. The 13
who are elected can vote—the 3
who are appointed cannot.
There are only three limitations on what they can do with
your money. Since all their
motions are subject to review
by the Faculty Council, they
obviously   cannot,   spend   your
money to undermine the faculty.
The other two restrictions are
constitutional. According to the
AMS constitution they must ask
you (and you, and you) before
they make a capital expenditure
exceeding $1,000.00.
This is done either by referendum vote or at a general meeting
(if they manage to get a quorum).
MEN  $5.00 — WOMEN 65c
The constitution also earmarks specified sums of'money
for certain organizations. For example, the Women's Athletic
Association is guaranteed sixty-
five cents per student. The Men's
Athletic Association usually gets
about five dollars per student.
This, however, is customary and
not constitutional.
The AMS also possesses S20-
000 in debentures which are
paying interest at the rate of
three and one-half per cent per
annum. This is how the council
puts surplus to work drawing
money for the use of future
students.
Council's   efficiency    and   integrity    in    handling    all    this
money is checked yearly by an
accredited auditing firm.
COUNCIL CONTROLS YOU
According to the AMS Constitution (which, incidently can
only be changed by you at a
general meeting) Students' Council has disciplinary powers over
AiMS   members   and   organiza
tions. They may penalize for
any breach of the AMS Constitution or Code or for conduct
unbecoming a student. This
clause is interpreted by Student
Court.
This includes control over the
five major activity groups on
campus: The Undergraduate
Societies, the University Clubs
Committee, the Athletic Associations, the Publications Board
and the Associated Women Students.
Control is maintained over
these groups and other commit-
,tees by supervision of their
minutes at the regular Monday
night council meetings. Council
may amend or reject all or any
part of these minutes.
(Other things go on at Council meetings, but we will mention only those that are supposed to happen.)
COUNCIL CONTROLS  CLUBS
Council maintains very strict
control over campus organizations. A number of clauses in
the Constitution give our blue-
clad friends complete practical
control.
The activities of all AMS
groups must comply with all
Students' Council resolutions
and must be okayed by the Coordinator of Activities.
Any   new   clubs   must   have

LETTERS  TO  THE   EDITOR
No "Drift
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Frosh Arise!
Because of the unproven, but nevertheless apparent tendency of various well-knit groups on this campus to vote in
blocks during the election of the student government, and
because this tendency is undesirable, the Frosh with their
large numbers have an opportunity and responsibility to make
these elections "honest".
The Ubyssey appeals to you, the Frosh, to make your-
selvse familiar with our system of student government and
then to get out and elect a truly responsible council. To help
you, the Ubyssey has printed a comprehensive feature on the
structure and function of the Alma Mater Society and the
duties of its principal officers. This article is presented on the
front page of this issue. We urge you strongly to read it—
thoroughly. Having done this, you must then nominate qualified candidates for the rernainhig posts. Finally, you must decide "iadependently which candidate is best qualified and vote
for him.
The reasons why acclamation are undesirable and dangerous are obvious, and yet three of the four posts on the first
slate, among- them the most crucial of them all,went by ac-
ejL__--_i±iQn..Arguments that Dave Edgar will make an excellent
President, while undoubtedly true, are nevertheless irrelevant, and he would be the first to agree. It is the principle, not
necessarily the result of acclamations that is so damnable. The
idea that the majority of students just couldn't care less about
ijie elections, or for that matter, the whole society, because it
rjoesn't effect them, is incredulous. You must care, because it
does effect you. Your, money is spent, your activities are governed, and your whole life as a student (whether you realize
it ornot) is regulated by council—unless you are a vegetable.
I^Iany Canadian universities have far less student autonomy
than UBC; none have as much. Unless you wake up to your
responsibility, UBC will shortly rank with the virtual administrative dictatorships of Laval and similar Canadian universities.
In short, we entret you to acquaint yourselves with the
system, nominate dependable, capable candidates, and vote.
JJTTER5 TO THE EDITOR
Sing Not
Dear Sir:
Lately, at UBC pep meets,
variety shows and charity
shows where UBC students
have been lending their assorted talents, there has been included in most programmes, an
act that is appreciated about
-as much as one of Vancouver's
devasting down-pours.
I may be "all-wet" about
this, but why doesn't someone
tell these male singing quartets, trios or so-called 'folk'
singers, to give up the struggle,
when they are so obviously
losing?
More significant than the
question of their sanity is that
of their possession of sheer
perve and audacity. But they
have guts, and they need it,
too, to stand on stage for hours,
belting out their little ditties.
Whenever a talented group
of singers reaches the top of
the Record Survey, or comes to
town to sing, eg., the Four
Freshmen or the Kingston Trio
or the Three Stooges (an infantile act that wouldn't be too
hard for a UBC group to imitate) it amuses me to see the
"feeble impersonations of these
artists, taken in such dead earnest, by our local yodelers.
If  only   the   ''silent  music"
that became such a hit at the
Detroit University could be introduced here. Just imagine,
a whole two hours with not
a note of music played or sung.
Why, our enthusiastic singers
would be straining at their
leashes trying to get started
howling.
These UBC groups often sing
for charity. I ask you now, if
charity begins at home, then
let's show some compassion
now Lunch-bags and apple-
cores were ineffective in stopping Tim Buck's harangue, so,
if we want to employ a charitable way to control these
mass-murderers of melody, 1
recommend tomatoes and raw
eggs be passed out at the door.
Moderately yours,
Ralph Henderson
Big Mouths?
Dear Sir:
A Challenge to Fort Camp:
You have the largest mouths
—let's face it.
Now we  must  become  more
basic.
In vocal art you may outsmart,
But we are soon to pace it!
We   challenge  you—in battle
new,
It's the corpuscles that heed—
We recognize the need.
To get right out and bleed!    -,
Acadia Camp
In order to clear up a great
deal of controversy and misunderstanding that came as a result of the report of my brief to
the Haskins Commission, I will
now set clear the facts as I stated
them previously. Unfortunately
your reporter not only misinterpreted my ideas, but also insinuated in the headline that 1 believe "drift" candidates are now
running for positions on the AMS
Council-. Furthermore, Mr. Allen
also failed to report the essence
of the brief, for the reason, I
suppose, that it was too much
of a repitition of what had been
already been said by Don North.
Firstly, I will make it clear
that I do not believe any such
"drift" candidates have run for
council in the past or actually
hold positions at the present
time. The only "drift" that I referred to, Mr. Allen, were the
people who might seek election
under my proposed scheme if
they were not required to post a
bond of good faith. Under my
scheme, the AMS would finance
all candidate's campaigns. Each
candidate, in turn, would post a
bond of a specified amount of
which would be refunded if he
polled a required percentage of
the vote. Thus not just anyone
would run for office — a person
would have to have a certain
amount of confidence that he
could poll the required percentage of the vote. However, if a
candidate did not have to post
this bond, then, undoubtedly
many people would run for office because it would cost nothing to do so. The bond requirement will prevent any "drift",
as you term it, Mr. Allen, from
running.   .
The reason for instituting such
a system is not to prevent
"groups" or "rich boys" from
having an advantage. As .pointed out when I presented the
brief, Mr. Allen, I believe 'group'
backing is essential — whether
it comes from a fraternity, a
club, or any organization. It is
essential that a candidate should
have this backing, for two reasons. Firstly, the candidate needs
"group" help in campaigning.
Even if the AMS should pay for
the candidate's expenses, he will
need help in making posters and
other forms of advertising. Secondly, if a candidate is backed
by a group, then the members of
that group will be the ones to
know if the person would serve
the campus best on the AMS
council. On the other hand, if a
person runs without group backing, then he is the only one who
can testify as to his ability and
desire to do a good job. He is
also burdened with the heavy
responsibility of providing a
good campaign.
There are two main reasons
for bringing in my type of an
electoral system. Firstly, although a candidate might have
solid group support, his group
or himself might not have enough
money to carry on an adequate
campaign. Thus this system will
benefit those who cannot afford
to run. Secondly, the institution
of such a system should bring
an end to acclamations on this
campus. Last year at least three
council positions were not contested, and indications are that
this year will be no different.
Whether this new system would
change this apathy or not is
something which can only be
found out by experiment. It is
certainly not a radical move.
Many cities in Europe use this
electoral system and in France
it is used for almost all elections.
Although the limit of $25 per
person for an AMS campaign
may not sound too expensive to
some people, to many on this
campus it represents a large sum
of money. Not only this, but the
twenty-five dollar limit is really
a joke. Candidates are put on
their "honour" not to spend over
this amount. I have seen many an
AMS campaign on this campus
in which a candidate has surely
spent more than 25 dollars on
advertising. And naturally, this
is bound to be the case, since
most elections for AMS are won
by having the "biggest and best"
campaign. The emphasis should
be taken off advertising and
placed on the person's character
— what he has done on campus
and what he intends to do on
council are the important factors the voter should consider. It
is on this basis that he should
vote, not on the basis of large
scale advertising. Although this
aim can never be fully achieved,
it can be brought a little closer
by bringing in my proposed
scheme—since campaigns would
be more or less equalized, and
the voter will not be really that
affected by one individual's cam
paign. At any rate, the whole
plan should be considered carefully by everyone — it could be
used as a positive step to tend
student apathy.
Sincerely,
Eric Ricker,
Vice-President,
Fort Camp Council.
Class Cancelled
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
For the second time this term
a league basketball game ' has
caused the 7:30 p.m. Thursday
■ night badminton class to be cancelled. Unfortunately the members of the class were not informed beforehand. A full class
turned out on both occasions
only to have their games cut off
after one half hour of play.
This fact seems insignificant.
However, it must be taken into
consideration that at the minimum one and a half hours must
be spent travelling, dressing and
in actual play. This fact is significant.
In the second instance the instructor was not informed of the
change until Thursday afternoon. With the best of intentions
he posted a sign, on • the mezzanine floor of Memorial Gym-
asium stating that those not
wanting to strip should sign their
names. It should be noted that
class members would have to
go to the gym to read the sign
during the afternoon or they
would commute to the university at night only to be informed
of the cancellation. Probably because most of the class entered
by the basement door only one
person actually signed his name.
If this little farce is the fault
of the Physical Education Department I advocate immediate
reform. If it is not, I ask only
that the class be informed by the
responsible party well in advance of the cancellation.
Your truly,
J. B. Holloway,
1st Engineering.

Party Platforms
Conservative
By DEREK FRASER
The temptation for any political club when the party it
represents is in power is to
follow placidly along in its footsteps. This we do not propose
to do. We intend to present our
own ideas in Model Parliament
ii we are elected to form the
government. In some cases, these
ideas will disagree with or even
go against those of the present
federal government.
- We intend to broaden considerably Canadian immigration
policy. We are of the opinion
that far more refugees can be
be admitted to this country. We
consider it farcical to be spending large sums of money to aid
other Commonwealth countries
While at the same time totally
excluding  their  citizens.
We intend to expand the Canadian contribution to the Colombo Plan and we want to enlarge
the Plan to include not only the
countries of South East Asia but
also the entire Commonwealth.
We intend to press even more
strongly for disarmament and
we shall continue to keep a
battalion of troops perpetually
earmarked for service with the
United Nations. We want to see
the enlargement and strengthening of NATO not only militarily
but   also   economically.
To any provincial government
which wants it, we offer to pay
our share of any medical expense whatsoever. To any university which wants it, we offer . to pay the students' fees
through increased grants to the
Canada Council. We shall also
provide money to greatly expand the Canada Council's
scholarship plan.
This is not a complete list of
our ideas. They are many. We
are trying to avoid a satisfied
complacency in the Conservative government in office and
provide a sounding board foi
new and  critical thinking.
Communist
By VIC ANDERSON,
President UBC CPC
People today are aware more j
than ever that in world politics, ;
as in science the things once !
thought impossible now seem:
attainable.
The possibility of another war
has made it necessary to find
a way for the capitalist and
socialist systems to live side by
side in peace.
The 'communit party believes
that Canada has an opportunity
to -play a- decisive role in bringing about a peaceful solution
to world differences.
The Communist Pary believes
that Canada can serve the best
interests of the world and herself by adopting a position of
NEUTRALITY.
To obtain neutrality Canada
should:
1) Withdraw from  NATO
2) Allow no missile bases on
her soil.
3) Completely   disarm.
As a neutral power Canada
would be in a better position to
act as an intermediary between
the big powers.
The billions of dollars which
will be wasted on armaments if
present policy is to continue
could be used to;
1) Provide aid to the underdeveloped areas of the world
2) Provide capital to develop
secondary industries to process are own resources.
3) To provide capital for need-
i ed public power and water-
J way projects.
I   4) Provide  monies   for   higher
j institutions  of learning.

! you to give your support to a
! policy of neutrality and a better
future for Canada by voting

the council.
All groups must submit
periodic financial statements
to the Finance Committee.
Any student organization not
subsidiary to the AMS must
make application in writing for
use of AMS facilities.
YOU CAN CONTROL COUNCIL
Despite all this, you — the
student — still have ultimate
power. Any resolution of the
Council may be reversed by a
majority vote at a General
Meeting of the Society.
You may call a General Meeting in two ways. First, if the
council is feeling friendly, a
petition signed by 100 members
is sufficient.
But, even if the council is
hostile,  a petition  signed  by 5
per cent of the total AMS mem-
.jership automatically calls .a
General Meeting. In this way,
the membership may halt any
council action that is not in the
best interests of the Society (No
special general meeting has
been called in recent history.)
It is easy to check up on the
Council to see if they are doing
a good job. The minutes and
other records of the Students'
Cuncil are kept in the AMS office in the Brock and are open
to inspection by any member.on
request. The meetings are also
public and members are encouraged to attend.

actions reflect student will because this body represents students in the eyes of the public.

Here   is  an   outline  of   the
positions  which are open  for
nominations    on    the    second
slate.
MONEY BAGS
Some $250,000 is the sum
that has fallen to the custodianship of the AMS Treasurer this
year.
All financial dealings of the
AMS must go through the
Treaurer. He has a good measure
of power. In recent years he has
been aided in his task of financial control by the Finance Committee, of which he is chairman.
This group is also one of the
checks on his power. He is also
checked by the President and
the year-end audit.
To insure his integrity, he is
required by the  constitution to
post a $2,000 fidelity bond on assuming  office.
CONFUSING   CONSTITUTION
Present Treasurer, Dave Edgar, being a law student has an
advantage over ordinary people
in being able to understand the
statement of his duties in the
AMS Constitution. It is long
and detailed.
His major duties are financial.
He negotiates all AMS contracts
and he is in charge of the busi-

ness   manager   and   the   office
staff.
Committees that dispense
large amounts of money also
fall into his sphere. The Accident Benefit Committee comes
under this category. The Treasurer chairs this comlmittee. He also
sits on MAC ^because of the
large grant it receives from
AMS (about $50,000).
EDGAR—
SECOND-IN.-COMMAND
Traditionally, the Treasurer
is the second-in-command behind the President. He has a
large voice in policy setting and
he sits on most major policy
committees. An example of this
is the Off-Campus Housing Committee which he is chairing at
present.
It is probably no accident that
the Treasurer's office is directly
adjacent to the President's. It'll
be a short trip for Dave Edgar
when he makes the move next
year.
ATHLETIC MAN
The President of the Men's
Athletic Association is usually s
big athletic type with a football-
field voice and an incisive mind.
This year's President, football, rugby and sometime table
tennis player, Ian Stewart (good
football, good rugby, lousy table
tennis), is no exception.
The President uses his football-field voice to be the spokesman on Council for all phases
of men's athletics. He sits on the
Men's Athletic Committee and
advises the faculty members on
this Presidential Committee on
the student point of view regarding athletics. He is the council
oracle on men's sports.
MONEY FOR INJURED
ATHLETES 	
Besides running the student
side of men's athletics he finds
time to sit on Students' Council
committees. Naturally, he sits on
the Accident Benefit Committee.
All injured athletes must be
taken care of—there's such a
shortage of good men.
The MAA President is conventionally a member of any
commiittee dealing with student
facilities. This year he is chairman of a committee (the Student
Athletic and Recreational
Facilities Committee that is investigating athletic and recreational facilities on campus.
ATHLETIC WOMAN
The distaff side of campus
athletics is controlled by the
Women's Athletic Directorate.
The leader of WAD is the
President of the Women's Athletic Association. She is responsible to Students' Council for
all women's sports.
She is also a member of the
Presidential Committee that is
responsible for women's
athletics, the Women's Athletic
Committee.
WAD TIGHT
WAD is a tight (in the sense
of well-organized) group which
spends its $7,000 plus budget
and has its functions in the relative obscurity of the Women's
i Gym. It is the task of the WAA
President (who this year is
swimmer Harg McLachlan to
co-ordinate these activities and
to make that $7,000 go as far as
possible.
She also must do some committee work on Students' Council. For eample, like the MAA
President, she serves on the Accident Benefit Committee.
ORGANIZED
WOMEN
Patti Darling . is UBC's first
co-ed.
She is the President of the
'Associated Women Students and
the leader of all women's
activities on campus.
She is the official representative of campus women and, in
this capacity, she handles all relations between UBC women
and women's organizations at
other universities. She also represents co-eds on the Frosh
Orientation Committee.
Besides presiding over. AWS
activities, she serves on Students' Council committees. For
instance, this year Miss Darling
is the liaison between the Council and the Student Library Committee. This committee is responsible for promoting quietness
in   the   library.
The AWS President spends
the rest of her working time
sitting on those council committees that spring up from time to
time throughout the year.
And we mustn't forget the
President.
LARGE MEMBER
Every committee must have
members available for emergency work, and for the work
that comes out of day-to-day
problems.
One of the people that serve
the   Students'    Council   in   this
capacity is the Second Member-
at-large. The constitution assigns
him no specific duties, but convention  and  the   President   get
together and make sure, that he
is kept busy.
I     The present Second Member,
Jim Meekison, has spent most of
j his  time  this year  chairing the
i Frosh    Orientation    Committee
and    the    Food    Services    and
j Housing  Committee.  Frosh.
| Orientation   is   assigned  to   the
: Executive Member by the Constitution but has recently passed
'into   the   hands   of  the  Second
I Member.
FOOD   SERVICE   COMPLAINT
Food   Services   and   Housing
' has kept Meekison hopping this
' year. Everybody complains about
i campus food  services  but it   is
,' the Second Member who has to
: do something about it.
Investigating the move to-
wards segregation by sex in the
camps is another responsibility
of the Second Member.
These tasks will be waiting
for next year's Second Member
when he takes office.
Other than this, the Second
Member attends the Council
(as, indeed, do most of the other
councillors) and takes on work
that assists the Students' Council in a general capacity.

THEOLOGY SITUATION
By DON MALINS
Four Theological Colleges
are affiliated with UBC. They
are Union College, United
Church of Canada; Anglican
Theological College; St. Andrew's Hall, Presbyterian
Church of Canada and St.
Mark's College, Roman Catholic.
Of the four, only the first
two offer courses leading io
diplomas in Theology. All the
Colleges have student accommodation. In addition to this,
there are Chapels where services are held every day.
The Colleges serve as religious and social centres for
students at UBC.
On this features page we
concern ourselves only with
Union College and the Anglican Theological Colleges because they offer courses leading  to diplomas in Theology.
Hidden
Pasts
Revealed
\       By EDWARD GALE
If you have ever wondered
what type of man "goes in
for the ministry," the following may give you some idea.
At the Anglican College,
25 men are presently studying Theology and 18 are studying Arts in preparation for
their theological studies. Of
these, the oldest man is 42;
the youngest, 18. The average
age is 27. Sixteen are married. Three are Americans,
eight are English, two are
Scots, one is Dutch, one is Nigerian and the rest are Ca-
_   nadian-born.
Nine men came directly to
university from high school,
but the majority have come
from a variety of walks in
life.
Four of the men were in the
Navy, four in the Army and
one in the Air Force. One was
an electrical engineer, one a
structural engineer and another   a professional   chemist.
Two of the 25 men now studying -were teachers, one a
high school principal and another a city superintendent of
schools.
The British South African
Police claimed the career of
one. and the R.C.M.P. another. One was with the diplomatic service, another a
Provincial civil servant.
Two were farmers, one a
trust company officer and five
worked in banks. Two were
salesmen, one a sales manager. Still another was manager for a fund-raising corpor-
,  ation.
Yet another was a marketing analyst for an oil company, one an accounting systems  analyst.
A precision instrument
maker, a shipping clerk, a laborer, a telegrapher, a printer
an organist and a secretary
for a railway ... all these
men are currently studying
Theology at the Anglican
Theological  College.
Such is the type of man
who trains for the ministry.
These are ordinary men,
many of whom were highly
paid and have given up positions of responsibility, prestige and security, in order to
serve God more fully as
priests in. His Church .

Theology Schools
First B.C. Colleges
By  DR.  W. S. TAYLOR
Principal,  Union  College
Theological colleges were the pioneers of higher education in B.C. From the very beginning they have been a
part of the university picture.
The first  teaching   of   Col-       communities—remote   Indian
lege  level  in   B.C.   seems  to       towns like Klemtu, lumbering
have been given by the Roman
Catholic Church in 1880. The
first college to start organized class room teaching was
Columbian College, established by the Methodist Church
in 1892, just five years after
the name Vancouver first appeared on the C.P.R. list of
stations. When the present
University of B.C. started its
classes in 1915, four theological colleges were operating-
Methodist, Presbyterian and
Anglican.
Union College of B.C. was
formed in 1927 by the amalgamation of the Presbyterian
and Methodist theological colleges. Through the Presbyterian branch its roots go back
to 1907, and through the
■Methodist branch to 1892.
People are sometimes surprised at the variety of backgrounds from which men come
to Union College to train to
be ministers. Among recent
students have been graduates
in mining engineering, electrical engineering, agriculture,
forestry, social work, education and chemistry, as well as
in the normal Arts subjects.
Present students include an
electrician, plumber, civil
servant, air-line pilot, insurance executive, government economist, diesel engineer, merchant, jeweller,
tug-boat pilot, a special events
man from the BBC, and others,
as well as students coming
straight fro m university
graduation.
The variety of communities
to which they go after graduating from College is just as
varied. They are all over the
province, from Clo-ose on the
west coast of Vancouver Island to Golden in the east,
and from Prince George in the
north to Creston in the south.
. And. they are all types of
communities like Tahsis, mining communities like Bralorne,
industrial communities like
Trail, ranching communities
like Williams Lake, railway
comunities like McBride, and
all the less specialized centres
of the province. Many of them
have gone to other provinces,
and some overseas, to Japan,
Hong Kong, India and Africa.
Missions
Train Men
By GENE DISPEKER
It is very often not until a
theological student has spent
a summer in a mission field
that he realizes just what is
the challenge of the ministry.
Until then it is possible for
him to retreat to his "ivory
tower," as he is accused of
doing, and letting the reality
of the world outside slip by
him.
He is to live in the world
with its problems, to transcend it in such a way that he
is able to leave his part of it
more moral, less biggoted and
biased, more able lo see clearly
the reasons for living the
Christian life.
He must be a brother to the
alcoholic, the drug addict and
the adulterer, in short, anything the "unco guid" abhors,
and not be shocked. He must
be able to sip tea with the
"unco guid" themselves and
not be disgusted. Both classes
he must love with the sacrificial love for mankind which
will not fall prey to praise
and not be deterred though
he   be   reviled.
He must realize that his sins
could be the worst of all.
His challenge is to live like
Christ but to remember that
he himself is not God.
By ROBERT STERLING ]
Seraphs, Angels and Devils reside at the Anglican
Theological College.
These three institutions comprise an active house
system among those students  who live at the College.
Day-to-day life at the College is centered upon chapel
services. Morning Prayer is said every day expect Sunday; Holy Communion is celebrated on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings. Evensong is sung on weekdays.
As the morning services are held before breakfast,
most students are up before 6:40 a.m.
All meals at the College are served in the dining
room, where three students act as waiters at all meals.
All first year students belong to "St. Michael's Alley", -
a  group  responsible   for   answering   evening   phone   calls
and preparing coffee for the evening coffee break.  They
also provide an evening's entertainment for friends of the
College in October.
As well as the annual "At Home", the college sponsors a Faculty Tea to which professors of college students
are invited, a Christmas Party which includes a full-
course dinner and an Oratorical contest.
THE MINISTRY IS A VOCATION
By REV. G.  PARKE-TAYLOR
The ministry is a vocation rather than a profession in
the strict sense. Men train for the Anglican priesthood
because they believe that they have been called by God
to, the ministry. Traditionally, the Anglican Church has
always placed emphasis on "sound learning" and has
sought to provide adequate theological training for prospective ordinands.
The Anglican Theological College, one of 11 Anglican
colleges in Canada providing training in Divinity, is the
only provincial college, serving the ecclesiastical province
of British Columbia. •
The College was incorporated in 1912, merged two institutions (Latimer Hall and St. Mark's Hall) in 1920 and
erected the present College buildings on the University
grounds in 1927.
The theological course, designed for University graduates, extends over three years and leads to the diploma
of Licentiate  in  Theology.
Basic courses are given in Old and New Testament,
Greek, Systematic Theology, Church History, Christian
Ethics and Philosophy of Religion.
Studies in Pastoral Theology include Homiletics
(Preaching), Liturgies (Prayer Book), Pastoral Counseling, Clinical Pastoral Training, Religious Education, the
Devotional Life and Church Music. Hebrew may also be
taken as an optional subject.
AND THEN AT UNION COLLEGE . . .
By TOM RIDEWOOD
The grey granite  building  with  its  high  tower only
.now being finished—is this a factory for the grinding out
of ministers?
Not to the students whose three years of theological
. studies are centred around Union College. For them, this
is the place in which they are able to carry out the College
Motto: Universum Mundum, into all the world, as ministers.
Within the Tower, visible from most of the campus,
there are two focal points of College life, the Chapel and
the Library. A Theologue, even as a minister, lives the
life he proclaims. Dailyat 11:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., services
of worship are held. Nor is the chapel empty at times other
than these. To the student of the ministry, common-room
discussion is only supplementary to communion with God.
The second focul point, the Library, now in the process of expansion and re-cataloguing, is a well-used and
mu_h appreciated source of knowledge, both ancient and
modern.
The Theological Society moulds the major social activities of members of the College. Two or three parties,
including the Graduation Banquet, are sponsored by the
Society as well as numerous noon-hour activities. Fellowship within the College is enhanced by an annual Retreat
of two days' duration in which both students and professors participate.
To the College come many guests and special lecturers
of wide renown in theological circles. A broad outlook and
understanding of the Church in the world is gained by
the exchange of ideas with students of other denominations on this campus and in national and international
conferences.
• Activities of students include service in the Church.
During the academic year many are involved in church
work in various capacities. Some serve as the only ministry to congregations in Vancouver,. Burnaby, the Fraser
Valley, and as far away as Crifton, Brittania Beach and
,Texada Island. Numerous students spend full summers
serving churches in the interior and the northern parts
•of B.C., as well as those closer by.
The life of a student in Union College is based upon
sound faith, doctrine and theory, but it involves personal
application  and  practical  experience. •

Busy Birds Bounce Bears
UBC Meets D-C's Wed.
Night in City Semi-Finals
By MIKE HUNTER
UBC Thunderbirds dumped the University of Alberta
twice last weekend, to run their WCIAU win streak to eight
games, and their unbeaten string to eleven..
They Clobbered the Bears 60-35 Friday and 66-45 Saturday.
- Wednesday, they meet Deithrich-Coilins at UBC in the second
game  of the Inter-city Le*ague semi-finals.  The first  game was
played last night at Churchill gym.
Friday night, some 800 fans, the largest crowd of the season,
watched the Alberta Golden Bears hold the Birds to a 19-15 half-
time lead. The Birds rebounded and shot at will against their
smaller opponents, but they couldn't put the ball through the
hoop. Alberta's tenacious checking forced tht Birds to shoot from
the outside, and they hit only five of 24.
WINSLADE LEADS SCORERS
But they got rolling again in the second half, cracking Alberta's zone, and hitting 16 of 34 shots. Ken Winslade led the Birds
again, scoring 18 points. Harry Beleshko was high man for the
Bears with ten.
Saturday's game was just as uneven, but the hustle of the
Bfiars kept it interesting. The Birds used their second string for
two thirds of the game. Wayne Osborne led the scorers with
13 points, and Dave Way, who played his best game since November, added 10. Lots of chatter arid aggressiveness by Alberta's
Dave Thomas kept the Bears in the game. Thomson was Alberta's
" top scorer with 11 points.
s; HOOP SCOOPS: Friday night's game was highlighted by the
Ifort-Acadia Camp cheering contest. Sports Editor Ernie Harder
agid his Fort Camp associates won in a breeze (!)... Keith Hartley
ijipured his back during Friday's game. He is expected to be ready
fpr the semi-finals . . . Birds have virtually clinched the WCIAU
"crown ... In a surprise move, Barry Drummond started at guard
Saturday and Ed Pederson went to the forward spot . . . Barry
Igads the Birds in rebounding, Ken Winslade leads in almost everything else . . . Inter-city officials goofed again. Birds were promised they wouldn't have to plays Mondays, but, due to lack of-gym
sgce at Churchill, played last night.
