nominations  for the first slate
being submitted.
Also in by acclamation are
Wendy Rosene,-the only nominee for Secretary, and Chris
Davies, who was unopposed in
seeking the post of Undergraduate Societies Chairman.
But there will be one contest,
one reason to go to the polls
next Wednesday.
Ten thousand, five hundred
students will be asked to turn
out to choose between Alan
Corn well and Robert Squires for
First Member.
Apathy reigns supreme! Five
candidates' turn out to fight for
four positions.
Anjji last year it was bad
enough—four council positions
went by acclamation. This year
we will beat that record into
the ground before the second
slate goes to the polls.
5-WAY FIGHT
Last year at this time a five-
way fight was shaping up for
the Presidential post. This year
Edgar is in. Well, thank someone it was Edgar.
To quote Peter Meekison, "I
don't think a better person
could have become President of
the Alma Mjater Society, but I
am sorry to see that this position and others went by acclamation."
Why does this sort of farce
develop?
Why do competent students
who could do a fine job fail to
put forth their names?
They had plenty of opportunity. The Ubyssey tried to stir up
interest, even to the point of
nominating "goon" candidates,
of threatening to take over lock,
stock and barrel.
NOBODY CARED
Nobody ,cared? Nobody took it
f seriously!
That's wrong. One Councillor
did get mad at this latest but-
burst from the Pub. He asked
closed without another name
why a legitimate candidate
should spend $25 on a campaign
when he could get in for free if
unopposed.
He was right. We withdrew
the nominations.
And one other nomination,
that of "Rory" King, turned out
to be a goon nomination.
So we had five good nominations and five bad ones. And
we now have three council members and one two-way fight for
the least important position on.
the slate.
PRIDE GONE
This sort of situation not only
speaks poorly of our campus,
but destroys the feeling of pride
and achievement which is the
rightful reward of any candidate
who successfully runs for a
Council post.
Said Dave Edgar, "I am very-
happy to be elected and will
do my best to carry on in the
excellent' tradition Peter has left
behind him." •'■
But he also commented on the
feeling he had that it was not
much of an achievement to be
acclaimed to such an important
office, no more of an achieve^
ment than it would have been to
defeat a "goon" candidate. ;
WELL. QUALIFIED
He said that the other offices
filled at the closing of nominations were filled by people well
qualified for the positions.
"I have no doubt that they
will do an excellent job," he
stated.
Cornwall and Squires will
speak to an open meeting in Buv
106 during noon hour Monday;
Everyone who believes in the^
democratic tradition should tura
out to this meeting to make a
fair evaluation of these two men,
and if you dorft agree :w_t_k
democracy for this campius, tt_r__'
out anyway.
Student   Executives!   End   All
Your   Troubles   Next   Weekend!
Have you got troubles, buddy?
Is life no longer worth living?
Don't fret, sir, Jim Meekison
promises that he will solve all
our problems if you attend the
Student Executive Conference
February 12 and 13.
He offers you all this and
more. If you go to the conference
you will learn how to re-organize your club and to halt that
horrible campus disease—apathy
blight.
For just two dollars you get 2.4
hours of friendly fun with the
Meekison brothers and their
council cronies.
You also get to attend six discussion groups and a Saturday
night dance in the Common
Block. What's more, you get two
banquet-type dinners thrown in.
In the midst of all this fun
future campus executives and
student politicians will learn
about the inner workings of student government and club organization on this campus.
According to the Meekison
brothers any council candidate
who does not attend will be excommunicated.
Applications must be in at the
AMS offices by 12:30 Saturday.
Unless you wish to remain a
member of the great unwashed
and ignorant mass, you had better get on the ball. Get that form
filled out and handed in.
Just think, if you stay away
you will miss meeting all those
illustrious, witty and attractive
councillors  (some of them  are-    ;
even good-looking). i
Also, you would miss hearing*
Leon  J.   Ladner's  after  dinner-
speech. Mr. Ladner is a political1
observer and fine speaker.
So you see, buddy, here's a*
chance to get a million buddT
worth of entertainment and u#
formation   for   just   200   smalt'1
pence.

Dear Sir:
I do not know whether the
group who attended Mr. Tim
Buck's funfest was an infantile
minority of the University's students represented en masse or an
accurate crossection of this University's manners.
Now, I recognize the throwing
of apple cores as a mature action
which is an essential outlet of
emotional release in maintaining cultural stability, of course,
but Mr. Buck should have been
granted the freedom of speech in
a courteous manner with, at
least, due respect to his bravery.
The audience should have had
the foresight and manners to let
the man speak before launching
what could have been a successful, more refined mob attack of
a much higher level.

PAGE THREE
Council Is Nerve Center
Of Every AMS Activity
By FRED FLETCHER ]
Student's Council is the nerve
centre of all AMS activities.
It has the final say regarding
the arrangement of almost all
student functions.
The deliberative body is composed of thirteen elected members and three ex-officio members. The latter three may take
part in discussion but they have
no vote.
There are only two restrictions
on the legislative power of the
council regarding student affairs.
Firstly, all rulings are subject
to review by the Faculty Council; and, secondly, capital expenditures are_ limited to a maximum of $1,000. Expenditures
greater than $1,000 must be ratified by a referendum vote by
AMS members or a majority
vote at a general meeting.
According to the AMS Constitution, council legislation should
have two main aims. The first
is "to promote, direct and control all student activities of the
University of British Columbia."
This includes control over the
five major groups on campus:
the Undergraduate Societies, the
University Clubs Committee, the
Athletics Associations, the Publications Board and the Associated Women Students.
Control is maintained over
these groups and other committees by constant supervision of
their minutes at the regular Monday night council meetings.
Council has the power to reject
all or any part of these minutes.
It also may amend these minutes.
The second aim is "to advance
the cause of higher learning in
the Province of British Columbia."
This is accomplished in a num-
#er of ways.
' One is by acting as liaison between the students and the university administration by serving on many Presidential Com-
Hiittees. Another is by acting as
laepresentatives of the student in
the eyes of the people of the province.
This is accomplished through
•-the work of the Publicity Committee and the Education Committee, among others. These
committees attempt to inform
the government and people of
■ :fbe province about university accomplishments, as well as about
the needs and problems of the
Students.
The funds with which the Students' Council fulfils its obligations are gained almost exclusively from the $24.00 fee that each
Student pays on registration.
The AMS also possesses $20,000
in debentures which are paying
interest at the rate of three and
one-half percent per annum.
More than half of the total is
already ear-marked for subsidiary organizations, however. For
example, the Women's Athletic
Assocition is guaranteed sixty-
five cents per student by the
constitution. Men's Athletics receives about five dollars per student by convention (that is, a
sum 6f this general magnitude
is customary, although not guaranteed constitutionally).
Council has certain disciplinary powers over AMS members
and organizations. They may
penalize for anywbreach of the
AMS Constitution or Code or for
conduct unbecoming a student.
Much of this is handled by Student Court.
Students' Council : maintains
»ery strict- control over campus councillors.
organizations. The activities of
all AMS organizations must comply with all Students' Council
resolutions. Any new groups
must have their constitution ratified by council.
All groups must submit periodic financial statements to the
Finance Committee. All activities undertaken by any group
must be okayed by the Co-ordinator of Activities.
"Any student organization not
subsidiary to Society shall make
application in writing to the Students' Council for permission to
use the Society's name on notice
boards."
The minutes and other records
of the Student's Council are kept
iri the AMS offices in the Brock
and are open to inspection by
any AMS member on request.
The council meetings are also
open to AMS members who are
encouraged to attend.
The ultimate power is in the
hands of the members of the Society. Any decisions of the Student's Council may be reversed
by a General Meeting of the Society.
AMS members may call a special general meeting in two ways.
Firstly, a petition signed by 100
members is sufficient to call a
meeting if the consent of Students' Council can be obtained.
A petition signed by 5% of
the membership automatically
calls a general meeting (even
over the objections of Students'
Council). Thus, the membership
may halt any council action that
is not in the best interests of the
Society.
THE PRESIDENT
The President of the AMS is
the busiest man on campus. The
statement of his duties in the
AMS constitution is brief but
Comprehensive.
It states: "The President shall
preside at all meetings of the
Society and of the Students'
Council. He shall be an ex-officio
member of all committees of the
Society and shall undertake all
such other duties as usually fall
to the office of a President of a
Society."
This means, in short, that he
is responsible for every AMS activity, that he is the single voice
empowered to speak for all the
students and that he is "father-
confessor" and ehief advice giver
to all AMS organizations and
members that wish to avail them
selves of his services.
This year's president is graduate Engineer Pete Meekison.
The President has many specific duties that fall under these
categories.
He is the chief liaison officer
between the student body and
the administration and between
the students and the alumni. •
(That is, as individuals — the
First Member deals with the Alumni Association).
He is a member of about a
dozen Presidential Committees
(that is, committees of the university administration) and he
sits on many of the important
AMS committees.
The President is responsible
for relations with other student
unions and for much of the AMS
correspondence.
He is the jack-of-all-trades on
Students' Council. He does most
of the minor but important personal contact .work and he oversees the work of all the other
He chairs the meetings, checks
to see that councillors have done
assigned tasks, initiates new
schemes, is consulted on all the ]
major issues, and appoints all
Students' Council committees.     |
In short, the position calls for
all the attributes of a good Prime |
Minister, the patience of job, and
the ability to survive a swim in
the lily pond on very short notice.
FIRST MEMBER
The First Member-at-large is
the little man who puts on the
big homecoming celebration each
fall.
He chairs the Homecoming
Committee and every detail of
the Homecoming is arranged by
this committee.
According to the AMS constitution he is the Council liaison
on the executive of the Alumni
Association.
Convention, however, has now
passed part of this task over to
other officers. The First Member now handles Alumni matter-
only in the field of general relations.
Convention didn't stop there,
however, for it has replaced that
responsibility with others. From
now oh, it is expected that the
First Member will act as Council liaison with the University
Personnel Office and also that he
will chair the Student Employment Committee.
The present First Member,
John Goodwin, holds both these
positions.
The First Member also does
much work on ad hoc committees. These are committees that
are set-up for some special purpose and on a short, term basis.
For example, Gpodwih this year
was a member of the committee
that investigated the operation
of Mamooks.
He is also a member of the Student Facilities Committee which
may continue in future years.
The First Member;at-large may
have to get used to being called
"the extra-large-member" for
this tag seems to be becoming
customary.
THE SECRETARY
The Secretary of the AMS is
required by the constitution to
sit on the Women's Athletic Committee, but there is no stipulation
that the office-holder must be a
woman.
The only way that a man will
sit on WAC is if one is elected'
as Secretary of the AMS.
Convention—that most powerful of forces in administrative
institutions — dictates that the
Secretary shall be a woman. Social work student Lynne Rogers
is this year's council scribbler.
The secretary has many duties
that are more important than
sitting on WAC.
She is responsible for the minutes of all meetings of the Society and the Student's Council
for all AMS correspondence (although in practise the President
answers many of the letters).
Customarily, she has certain
other duties. She will usually act
as liaison between the executives of Leadership Conference
and the Students' Council. She
is generally on the Accident
Benefit Committee and she is
virtually always secretary of the
Finance Committee.
Convention has also removed
one of her duties. The agenda of
the Students' Council meeting is
no longer posted two hours before the USC meeting as ealled
for in the constitution^
Eal. drink and be merry, for soon you will bleed! Cultivate
your blood now, for harvest is nearing! Vampires will scarier
as the annual UBC BLOOD DRIVE plunges its blood-hungry
needle into the anemic student body from February 8th io the
19th. Students may drip from 9:30 to 4:30 daily. Bleed generously and boost your faculty's quota.

THE CHAIRMAN
The Chairman of the Undergraduate Societies Committee is
big chief and head adviser to
and spokesman on council for
the Undergraduate Societies.
His chief function is to coordinate the many and varied
activities of the Undergrad Societies and to support their ideas
at council meetings.
He is customarily a member
of the council committees that
deal most closely with matters
of importance to USC.
These are the Elections Committee (which he chairs), the Eligibility Committee (of wluch he
is also chairman), the Charities
Committee, and the Brock Management Committee.
He is also an ex-officio mem
ber of the Discipline Committee.
These committees all deal'with
the general interests of the members of the Undergraduate Societies.
This year's chairman, .Ross
Husdon, is a member of the Haskins Commission on student
government. It is safe to say that
if such a group exists in future
the USC chairman will be a
member.
Election time is the busiest
time for the USC chairman. He
is one of the lowest paid executives in the province. Hie gets exactly nothing for the 15 to 20
hours a week that he puts into
his job.
Council's efficiency and integrity in making use of .the remainder is checked yearly by an
accredited auditing firm..
First Member To Be?
BOB SQUIRES
I strongly recommend that
all students seriously consider
voting for Bob Squires for

FilmSoc. Comes Across!
Science
The Film Society's Sunday
showing of five films, including "Animal Farm", should
convince those attending, of the
society's ability to provide programmes of high technical and
artistic Quality.
In "Jazz Dance" we saw a
sometimes exciting portrayal
of live jazz. The technique of
matching shot length to music
tempo was used, and succeeded
admirably at times. Occasionally the movie became slow
paced, and relied upon "human
interest" shots of inebriated
dancers, which were amusing,
but detracted from the overall
effect. But at its best, as in the
climactic final scene, with its
feet, skirts, and faces flashing
to the rhythm of "The Saints
Go Marching In", the film effectively conveyed the emotional impact of jazz upon an actively participating live audience
to its passive movie counterpart.
The next film was a fascinating study in innocence. Made
in Poland, it completely transcended its nationality, and became universally symbolic. The
comedy was beautiful, and pathetic, and the accompanying
music quite fitting. This alone
was worth the price of admission.
There   followed   two   short
cartoons, the first a Hollywood
version of the old story of 'Our
Lady's Juggler'. Its style was
naive and amusing, but not affected, and the movie was
charming and child-like. The
second was an attempt to capture the horror and suspense
of an Edgar Allen Poe tale. It
was seen through the eyes of
a maniac "who, like all of us,
believed he was sane". But the
horror was not so shocking,
nor the suspense so strong, as
in the original story. Despite
its partial failure, the film was
interesting in that it showed
that the cartoon has more to
offer than only humour and
satire.
Orwell's "Animal Farm" has
been criticized as "a backward
work", and this criticism is no
less applicable to the film version than to the book. It is
backward in that it is not the
work of a keenly observant
contemporary of the events under examination, but rather
that of one endowed by time
with an historian's perspective.
Yet "Animal Farm" is not a
superfluous r e s t a t e m e nt of
worn ideas, for it crystallizes
one's concepts of the beginnings
of Communism, and that system's fall from the idealistic
heights to which it once aspired.
It does this in a time in which
FILMSOC regrets that
there will be NO SHOW in the
Auditorium at noon today.
there is a tendency, in the flurry of cultural exchanges and
goodwill trips, to forget the
way the leaders of the Soviet
Union came to power.
The film retains all the directness and simplicity of the
modern fable from which it is
adapted. Its effectiveness as a
story adds greatly to its value
as a satire, for were it written
otherwise, it would become a
pedantic dissertation upon human fallibility. It stands as a
remarkably obvious satire,
made acceptable by its author's
ability to sustain the fable.
The programme will be shown
again on Sunday, and is highly
recommended to anyone whose
tastes run higher than "Gun-
smoke". It is to be hoped that
Filmsoc can provide us with
further proof of their ability to
meet competition.

_.. Modern Science and Christian Faith, Scripture Press Book
Division, 434 S. Wabash Ave.,
Chicago 111. by 12 members of
the American Scientific Affiliation.
Chapter III is in many respects the definitive chapter of
this book. Entitled simply
"Geology and the Bible,"
written by Prof. Edwin K.
Gedney, M.A. Sc. M., it seeks
to follow the tradition of Dr.
James Dana, convinced of a
perfect harmony between the
discoveries of geology in the
works of God, and the Genesis
account, in the Word of God.
Prof. Gedney documents
with a thorough straight forward dissertation under the
titles: The Geological Conception of The Age of the Earth,
The Geological Conception of
Origins, The Test of the Geological   Interpretation.
His aim here being to convince some Christians of the
validity of Geological observations, these read more like
a simple layman's introduction
to Geology than to the Bible.
Geology textbooks are usually
very readable; this is no exception.
Dealing with "evolution," he
says "directionalism of the
progressive appearance of living forms" accords just as well
with what he terms the "progressive creation" understanding of Genesis I, as -with the
"orthogenetic " evolutionary
theories so uncritically accepted in many scientific circles.
As between these views, he
writes: "The scientific interpretation is basically mechanical
in character, blind in its operation, and quite void of the
supernatural. Scripture is
based primarily upon the supernatural as an e ffective
cause.
"Second, we note the ten-
uousness of the chain of facts
by which the thread of "evolution is carried along. The
interpretation consists of a
group of theoretical bridges
spanning the yawning gulfs
between the observed facts. It
does not fit upon these factual
buttresses too well. It implies
a gradual unfolding of forms
legato in character, whereas
the (rock) strata indicate a
progression that is staccato or
inierjectory in character, particularly . . . the major . . .
changes in type.
"Third, faith   is   even   more
essential than in the rival interpretation, based upon the
supernatural. The only way to
bridge the gaps ... is by faith.
Obviously any theory of origins
must involve some faith, for
no human observers attended
the generation of the earth,.,
nor (was) the beginning recorded in observed strata, proponents of this mechanical interpretation manifest an astonishing amount of pure faith and
muster an unusually small
array of facts   ..."
"Many able scientists", he
says further on, "recognize the
weaknesses and difficulties . . .
no alternative that seems ac-
yet accept the basic principle
of substantiating . . the theory,
of evolution faithfully, having
ceptable to them. For the intelligent mind that does not
acknowledge the activity and
reality of the supernatural it"
is the only . . . rational inter-'
pretation of the world and of
life."
Other sub-titles are Instantaneous Creation, the Influence
of New Discoveries, The Inter-""
val or Reconstitulion Hypothesis, and Progressive Creation.
These demand the most
careful examination by anyone,
within or without the Christian
faith, who thinks that literal
acceptance of the Bible as
God's inspired, inerrant, Word,
is incompatible with the observations of science or the
demands of reason. By the
view of "progressive creation"
which he maintains is the true
exposition of scripture, no such
conflict exists. He gives full
respect to the true piety of
fundamentalists, holding the
Instantaneous Creation view,
and to those who see a Recon-
stitution between the first two
verses of Genesis, but he questions their  wisdom.
The writer  has had vividly
in  mind,  a  scene  in  what  as   •
then  ApSc   100  in   1947, in  a
Geology    200    class,    with    a
white-haired gentle  little  professor  standing   with   a   quiet
courage   before   a    class,   too
many of whom responded with
foot-shuffling or  snickers,  and
affirming   that   the   geological
time-chart he was dealing with
in no-wise denied his faith that
the earth is the creation of God.
It would comfort that professor,   now  emeritus,  Dr.  M.   Y.
Williams, to read the remarkable   comparison   on   its   52nd
and  53rd   pages,  between   the

Chapter V, A Christian View
of Anthropology, reflects some
of the confusion of that "sci
ence", but the authors William
Smalley, and Marie Fetzer,
make notable contributions.
Their discussion of "race,"
what it is and what it isn't,
merits anyone's close study,
as an explanation' of the Bible
verse" "-God hath made of one
blood all the nations of the
earth."
As between a discipline that
presumes to study man by the
measurements of science, and
the Book (which that science
ignores in large measure) which
purports to reveal man's nature, duty, destiny, inherent
sinfulness and Divine salvation,
there are some grave differences an d much common
understanding.
In cultural understanding
anthropology offers much to
Christians by which better to
undjerstandj their own faith,
say these authors. But in limiting Christianity to the status
of a human religion, cultural
in its origin, instead of the
super-cultural, and supernatural Message of the Lord Jesus
Sometime ago an article appeared on this page by the
writer entitled, "Jazz". As is
to be expected, there are probably several people who disagree with my interpretation
of this controversial form of
music. However, I am sure that
most will agree with me when
I say that to give a suitable
definition of Jazz is a very difficult thing to do. How can one
define the feeling, the emotion,
Christ.
Anthropology   blinds    itself.
A sense of shame, a cultural
phenomenon of the moral
relationship of man with men,
is not the same as the sense of
sin, a spiritual phenomenon
of a man's relationship with
his  Creator.
This section is a must for
Christians interested in missions, or anthropologists interested in understanding, instead
of just endlessly trying to
measure, mankind.
The Relationship of Archaeology to the Bible is the sixth
chapter. It starts with the Scrip
ture verse: ". . . if these should
hold their peace the very stones
would cry out." (Luke 19:40).
Dr. Allan MacRae, President
and Professor of Old Testament
at Faith Theological Seminary
deals with some of the striking
ways in which modern archaeological discoveries have corroborated to the smallest detail
the historical accuracy of the
Bible which the Bible critics of
of a century ago questioned on
various grounds.
One interesting fact he brings
out is that Archaeological investigation of the "Babylonian
creation story" has shown to be
utterly groundless the still
widely repeated thesis of Professor Jensen of Marburg that
it was the basis of the Genesis
account. "Careful examination
of the Babylonian epic and of
the story in Genesis I really
shows few points of similarity,"
he writes.
The concluding section of
this review, on Medicine,
Chemistry, and Psychology (by
a Christian psychiatrist, the latter is the most challenging
chapter in the symposium) will
follow next critic's page, if
Mike's great patience will permit. Thanks Mike!
G.B.L.
the vitality and drive which is
communicated in Jazz as in no
other medium? One blows
Jazz, one digs Jazz.
Despite this confusion in defining Jazz, there are several
aspects of the music which are
open to discussion. One of
these is the schools of Jazz.
As is the case with almost
any professional g r o u p of
people whether musicians or
not, the men of Jazz attach
themselves to various schools
and sometimes become almost
fanatical in their support of
them.
Jazz is composed of several
schools, some of which are: New
Orleans, Chicago, New York,
Kansas City, Detroit, Bop, and
Cool; but perhaps the most controversial of the present day
are the West and East Coast
schools, the former of which I
shall attempt to describe briefly below.
Due to the distressing climate of New York, and primarily
for economic reasons, several
Jazz musicians migrated from
the East to the West Coast in
search of a steady income which
could be obtained through play
ing the commercial music
which predominates the Hollywood and Television scene.-
As can be expected, this culmination of musicians in the
same general locale caused
them to get together during
their non-working hours to play
the music which they most-enjoyed. Thus there evolved a.
new form of^the music, which
naturally assumed the title of
West Coast Jazz.
Unlike the music of the popular "jam-session", which is essentially free spontaneous improvisation, West Coast Jazz,
is generally composed of an arranged score with a certain
number of measures left open
for free improvisation. They
have aproached Jazz from a
classical point of view by using
mathematical techniques for
elaborating their musical ideas,
classical themes, Jazz symphonies, and generally their music
in a classical form. As a result
their music possesses a new-vitality and sound which has
made another contribution fo
the ever  progressing world of

'JAM THE GYM"
Tonight is "Jam the Gym" night at UBC !!
The biggest crowd of the season is expected to watch the
University of Alberta Golden Bears attempt to halt the red-
hot Thunderbirds.
The Birds have now won eight
straight games, including six in
the Western Intercollegiate
League. They host the Bears'Friday and Saturday night at 8:30
at the War Memorial Gym. Last
weekend the Birds squeezed by
the Bears 53-50 and 53-35 in two
exciting games in Edmonton.
BEARS  NO PUSHOVER
Alberta's WCIAU record to
date is two wins and four losses.
However, last weekend's display
in Edmonton showed the Birds
that Alberta will be no pushover. In the Birds' narrow 53-50
win, their closest WCIAU game
yet, the Golden Bears led until
five minutes left in the game.
Then the Birds arid Ken Winslade pulled out to victory in
a hectic finish.
Tonight's game will feature
an Acadia-Fort Camp cheering
contest, and following the game,
a sock hop. Good fan support
in Edmonton last week has
prompted Bird boosters to prove
that UBC can get good home
crowds, too.

Manitoba VoteTurns
The University of Manitoba will not enter a football team
in the WCIAU next season.
Last week in a popular poll, the student body voted with
a 65 percent, majority in favour of football as well as the five
dollar fee increase that would go with it.
Student Council, however, |
failed to pass the motion by the
required two-thirds majority.
Their vote was 16 for and 15
against.
COUNCIL AGAINST
Later in the week Council
defeated a motion to send a
binding referendum to the students.
All is not lost. If the student
body has favoured a football
team for their university and
have agreed to spend an extra
five dollars, there is still a

Keep Students Informed
The Social Credit Party on
this campus has tried to keep
the student informed on their
policy throughout the entire
year rather than wait until this
opportunity afforded itself.
To this extent' we have been
pleased to present one cabinet
minister on campus each month
to address the student body and
to answer your questions.
These men have included the
Hons. Ken Kiernan, Eric Martin, Robert Bonner and Ray Williston.
Your Social Credit government has worked hard for the
people of the province of B.C.
and in particular for the students on this campus.
Last year the Social Credit
government instituted a new
and since copied idea on university financing and student
fee payments. Not only were the
fees of two thousand students
either half or one-third paid but
a generous amount was given to
the University itself for the
purpose of capital construction.
The speech from the throne
mentions even greater aids to
the campus this year.
Education is just one of the
fields where your government
has been active. Due to the vigorous activity of the government most students are aware of
the great expansion undertaken
in    such    fields    as   highways,

leam of stainless steel
at Eaton's of Canada stores coast to coast
It's the big "gleam of stainless steel" presentation at
Eaton's retail stores from coast to coast. You'll see
hundreds of beautiful, durable nickel stainless steel
products for the home. So practical... so economical
—-because stainless steel is easy to clean and keep
clean, won't rust, never loses its lovely lustrous look.
Nickel does great things for stainless—strengthens it,
gives it greater durability, helps it withstand heat and
corrosion... ensures years of good hard use. Look for the
"18-8" mark identifying nickel stainless steel products.
Shop Eaton's often for wonderful values in gleaming
nickel stainless steel products. Available at or through
any Eaton retail store, order office, or through Eaton's
mail order catalogue.
