German Youth
Council Blasts
A representative of the 6,00,000
member German Federal Youth
Council has denied any association of its members with the
anti-semitic forces in Germany.
The chairman of the council,
Edmund Duda, declared recently that the organizations in the
council, "have categorically dissociated themselves from these
irresponsible activities," by what
he called "hoodlums and some
young people."
He added that the council
"protests against the identification of the young generation of
Germany with such elements,"
and declares: "The German
youth has nothing in common
with those individual offenders."
The German Federal Youth
Council is a member of the
World Assembly of Youth
(WAY). NFCUS is the Canadian
Mr. Duda stated in his declaration that, "This youth has
shown that they are seriously
endeavoring to overcome the
Nazi past."

committee who is trying to

The Engineers will debate
with Medicine on Monday:
Resolved that "Education of
women at the university is a
waste of valuable time and
money." Do not the Engineers
educate their own women?
On Tuesday the Frosh will
tackle the Nurses: Resolved
that "the Provincial govern-

Arts and Agriculture will
soberly debate that "The AMS
rules regarding drinking al
University functions be more
rigidly enforced."
"Keep the  Drift  out!"
This is what Fort Camp Vice-President Eric Ricker says
his system of council elections will do. He wants Council
to pay the campaign expenses for candidates to fhe following,
year's council. —  "
Next weekend will see the
meeting of the Student Executive Conference on Campus.
It is hoped that this conference will lead to a more efficient
operation of campus organizations and will serve to reduce
much of the apathy that presently exists.
The conference has been
planned to instruct potential
club and undergraduate society
executives on the fundamentals
of leadership and organization.
The program will consist primarily of discussion groups headed by campus leaders. Topics to
be considered are:
(Continued on page 6)
Ricker proposed that Council
could standardize the campaigns
of all candidates in an effort to
eliminate the advantages of rich
individuals or groups in pushing a candidate by means of expensive posters and advertising.
Ricker suggested that those
aspiring to council could post a
bond of perhaps $20, which
would be refunded if he polled
10 per cent of the popular vote;,
and that this would discourage
those who did not feel they had
a real chance for election.
It would also "eliminate the
advantage certain groups have,"
and encourage those who did not
want to run with backing of a
In concluding his brief, Richer made two suggestions to the
Commission regarding the recommendations they will submit
to Student Council. ■!':'
He said that they should consult with the Political Science
Department and correspond with
other North American Universities,
Find out what the experts
think, and see what others have
done or plan to do, was his suggestion.

UBC To Get More Money
Socred Session Pledges
The B.C. government has
promised UBC a new college of
education and increased money
Lieut-Governor Frank Ross,
in his speech from the Throne
yesterday at the opening of the
Provincial Legislature at Victoria, made this pledge along
with several others concerning
increased aid to B.C. schools
and students.
Receiving increased grants
along with UBC will be Victoria
College. The government also
will give aid to school districts
which have been unable to fin
ance school construction programs because of the current
tight money market.
In addition, the government
is negotiating to buy $8 million
worth of school board debentures.
The speech pledged that the
program of scholarships, -bursaries and loans granted worthy
UBC students at the last session
of legislature will be continued
and enlarged upon.
In connection with Victoria
College, Ross said: "My government has already recommended
assistance to a capital construe*
tion program   which    will see
Victoria College enhanced in its
status to that of a liberal art&
Additional aid is proposed t#

Stimulus. SupQJi^icbcdl
The Ubyssey has decided to answer The Stimulus.
Upon publication of the first Stimulus a little while ago,
the Editorial Board chose to ignore the diatribes, believing
that no one would take seriously the charges made.
; The second edition, however, is so flagrantly filled with
mis-information, that we feel it prompts this sort of action.
In  answering the charges  made  by  the  editor  of this
publication we will go back to issue number one. We will.
_ show where facts have been exaggerated and distorted; we
will also show where the facts are completely wrong.
Claim: An article was submitted to the Ubyssey which was
'turned down in favour of a 'less controversial article'. The
Editor-in-Chief claimed the article was 'lost'.
Fact: The editorial policy of the Ubyssey is to accept articles
of a critical nature, only if any facts stated in the criticism
are true. The Editor-in-Chief, using this policy as his guide,
decided that this article did not conform with the conditons,
and therefore dd not publish it. He did not 'lose' it.
Claim: "... the vast majority of the paper's space is devoted
to notices, sports, pictures,  advertsiing, and  useless news
stories (e.g. tug-o-wars)",
;Fact: The main function of a newspaper is  to  print  news.
* In fact, according to the AMS Code, Article IV: "Among the
principal functions of the Ubyssey . . . shall be the advance
j       notification and sufficient advertisement to the Societies'
membership of the events listed in the Social Calendar of
-    the  student  handbook,   together   wtih   the  publication  of
such  social  or   athletic   events   or  other  matters   as the
Sudent's Council may direct to the attention of the Public
!       Relations Officer." This, along with the events that happen
from day to day constitutes news.  It is not the fault of
2     the newspaper that nothhig^eacthshaking hanpens on cam-
i~     pus. However, if the major' news oh campus is a tug-of-war
then it is pur function to report.on it as a news happening.
, .     Newspapers question and criticise on their editorial pages,
not on the pages devoted tonews.
Claim: "Why should the newspaper need advertising? Why.
does not the Stu^nt'js,Oouneil^ive enough money.to allow
the-newspaper tbrun indelJ.ent|er4$ly?"
; Fact: This "ShoWs ah ikhprance*"6f the costs of publishing a
newspaper. A little inquiry would show that the Ubyssey,
even with a virtually Unpaid staff, costs a comparatively
astronomical suna. If council were to eliminate advertising
and entirely support the paper itself, then a number of
activities how. siipnbjrted by the AMS would have to cease.
Advertising is a necessity,
Claim: "Why should the paper be concerned with sports at
all?" 'u   •"' 	
.Fact: As previously stated, the function of a,campus newspaper is to report on campus" events. As it is a fact that
, sports are campus events (and events in which a great
number of students are interested), then it is the duty of
the newspaper to print them. ; .
These are some of Hgie alienations from the first Stimulus.
The,publishers use*|$nvjdi«#4g-unents in order, to show .that
the Ubyssey, shouljd become" a literary,and critical magazine.
As was pointed put befpr^, jknd js reiterated — *h§ VEy§S#JT
is a newspaper.
In the most recent issue, .the publishers once again take
broadsides against.xhe Vpif^t — and their broadsides have
misfired. *'
They claim: that Filmsoc was refused space in the Ubys-
«f«>y to answer the criticism, of the filmsoc operation. This is
jintrue: If an article, or a letter, had betm^uhmitte^, and if
it had conformed to the Ubyssey's ejaitorktl policy, then it
would have been printed. The 2Ubyssey does riot refuse to
print articles of controversial nsjituse — as long as the facts
.stated in these, sir tides are, the truth as far as ean be discerned.
The Stimulus throws around a phrase 'the lowest common
,denominator' with dexterity. What this is.exactly, outside of
arthimetic and algebra, we don't reaUy.,know. However, the
Ubyssey, In functioning as a newspaper, caters to no denominator. We try, to the best of bur J_bmty7to report the news. A
prnfessor or a student reads,the Ubyssey to,find out what is
-happening on campus, no to search for material for critical
A claim was made that the Ubyssey falsely reported a
feud between Cinema 16 and Filmsoc. The present relationship" Of Filmsoc and Cinema 16 has no bearing oh this issue,
wtrich the Stimulus attempts to use as a basis for criticism-
'The truth,is that when Cinema 16 first appeared, they told
•Council that their purpose, was to fill the .gaps that Filmsoc
.left in film programming — in fact, hard feelings between
the two groups were very much in evidence.
A very 'scientific' endeavour was undertaken by the publishers of the Stimulus in doing a percentage breakdown of
the Ubyssey's content. "They make the naive assumption that
the paper appearing on Tuesday, January 26th, is a representative one. The fallacy of using one isolated item as proof
is obvious, not only from the point of view of scientific accuracy, but also in fairness. A much fairer representation is to
take the three papers in any week, and break those down.
Since the Critic's Page appears on Friday, for example, to use
a Tuesday paper as the sole;basis for criticism is absurd.
Thus the Stimulus appears and criticises the Ubyssey.
They do not criticise constructively. They.do not even recognise the function and" nature of the Ubyssey as a campus publication. They criticise only in terms of literary articles and
intellectual criticism.
The Ubyssey is a campus newspaper, containing within
its departments expressly for the purpose of writing activities
other than news reporting. The Critic's Page is a regular
feature. The editorial page is in every issue, containing articles of interest.
The Editors of the Ubyssey believe in criticism of activities on campus in two ways. One is through the reporting
iOf mistakes and errors that occur; the other is through critical
analysis on the editorial page. The editor-has asked several
professors to submit articles. Not One has been received. Few
serious articles from students have been received. The publishers of Stimulus apparently feel it is beneath their erudition
to contribute material to the Critic's,Page.
The true function of .the Ubyssey should be recognized.
M the content is^popr, then the fault lies either in the.activities
beinf covered or the manner in which they are covered. If
Mr. Nixon desires the quality of the newspaper improved,
then he is welcome to come down and use his writing skill;
as a teporte?.
J. D. Hooker,  1862
"Your theory of evolution by
natural selection • implies that if
every organism had survived
and produced offspring, then
every kind of plant and animal
that exists, and has ever existed,
would have been produced without any natural selection at all
(as well of course as myriads of
others). In other words all the
characters present in all organisms were the necessary consequences of the earliest and most
primitive organism."
To this Darwin replied "I do
and have always agreed."
"Thns accepting Hooker's argument, Darwin was foreed towards the view that the earliest
organisms though apparently so
small and simple were really so
gigantically complex that they
contained the potentiality of producing all the jjther organisms
that would ever exist on earth.
It followed therefore that if true,
the , theory of evolution would
not abolish Paley's argument
from design, hut would reinforce it a hundredfold. No wonder Darwin was disturbed. He
had sought to escape from God;
now .he found his old Enemy
waiting for him in a new hiding
place. His confusion can scarcely
be exaggerated. In letter after
letter he made the lamest excuses for his inability to think
clearly. Intellectually, he said,
he was in 'thick m«d.' Eventually he tried to avoid the dilemma with a laugh. If everything was designed, then the
shape of his nose must haye
been designed also. (Darwip felt
rather sore about the shape of
his nose.) So he challenged all
and sundry to say whether his
nasal profile was designed by
the Almighty."
C. E. Raven,  1943

resolution not to follow his
thoughts to their logical conclu-"
T. H. Huxley (speaking to
Lord Ernie)
"My dearyoung man, you aie
not old enough to remember
when men like Lyall and Mur-
chison were not considered fit
to lick the dust off the boots of

"I should like to get my heel
into   their   mouths (the clergy)
and sc-r-r-unch it round."
"Huxley did not at first take
very kindly to the evolution
theory. In days gone by he had
written a slashing review against
the Vestiges, and Darwin's Origin was along the same,lines.
But when he saw that evolution
would afford him an excellent
means with which to vent his
spite on the clergy, he accepted
it, though only guardedly at
first—"subject to the production
of proof that physiological species may be produced by selective breeding ..." a proof that
he never considered to have
been forthcoming even to the
end of his days."

The Ubyssey.
The latest issue of the sheet entitled "Stimulus" contains a
breakdown . of the contents of
the Jan. 26 issue of Ubyssey.
It is interesting to make a
similar breakdown of the "Stimulus" contents.
Thirty percent is devoted to
abuse of -Mr. Lum, Mr. Sinclair
and the Ubyssey.
Forty-two percent up with film
An article, or presumably
humorous intent, on the poem
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"
occupies 25 %.
The remaining 13% is given
over (reluctantly, one feels) to
editorials on drainage and free
From the continued criticism
of the Ubyssey, it is obvious that
those responsible for the "Stimulus" are still under the misapprehension that a university
newspaper should be a little
literary gem devoted exclusively
to titillating the academic appetites of the intellectual elite (i.e.
Arts IV students).
A newspaper's first function
is, by definition, the presentation of news; commentaries and
opinions are of secondary importance. If the "Stim.ulus" purports to be a newspaper (which
it certainly is not), where, then,
is its news? If it makes no such
claim, why waste valuable space
on vitriolic attacks on the Ubyssey?
These gentlemen have already
been asked, and I will ask them
again, whether they could not
better emlpoy their obvious talent by joining the Ubyssey staff,
rather than indulging in pointless and destructive criticism?
The high percentage of space
devoted to film reviews: is interesting when one learns that Mr.
Nixon is FilmSoc's Presentation
Manager. Now this is advertising-— somehting to which Mr.
Nixon takes great exception
when it appears in Ubyssey. It
may be paid for, and it may not;
the pointis that it is there, and
that FilmSoc and Cinema 16 will
benefit from it. Mr.- Nixon feels
there is nothing wrong with
FilmSoc paying its way; his criticism of the amount of advertising in Ubyssey, therefore, becomes not only illogical, but^
A word on the ^Twinkle"
article. Now really, gentlemen.
This has been done before,
many many times — we have recently been subjected, in the
Ubyssey, to two such themes on
Mary's Little Lamb. It may be
clever, but it has long ceased to
to be funny, and it could never
have been described as defying.
Is this the high literary standard
you would have us adopt? or are
you, too, suffering from the complaint the Ubyssey has long endured — lack of good material?

Beatnik For Hire
Lands on TV Wire
TORONTO (CUP)—A beatnik-for-hire business that
started as a joke mushroomed into an NBC television appearance for a pretty 20-year-old U. of Toronto co-ed during the
Christmas holidays.
An ad placed in The Varsity
began the series of events that
catapulted Ries Karvanaque (ad-
(mittedly an alias) onto the Dave
Garroway show, to read a poem
by A. A. Milne as beatnik poetry.
The ad stated that Ries was
for rent ■— with chaperon. For
$5 she would attend parties,
wakes or other events. Another
$5 was charged for chaperon.
Parties often fall flat without
a topic of conversation. Clad in
a black sweater, a black skirt,
and black stockings, Miss Kar-
vanque was to be it. For an additional sum she —• the ad stated
— would read beatnik ^literature.
Immediately the Toronto Telegram jumped onto the trail with
a front page picture and story.
Then radio station CHUM leapt
onto the bandwagon, and used
an interview on three broadcasts.
WUSC Travel
Three scholarships to Israel,
Hong Kong and the West Indies
are available to Canadian university students through World
University Service.
The first scholarship is awarded for postgraduate or research
study at any university in
Israel. A knowledge of Hebrew
is necessary. The award is from
eight to ten months commencing
November, 1960. Deadline for
application is Feb. 19.
All instruction is given in
English at the University of
liong Kong. The University has
Faculties of Arts, Science, Medicine, Engineering and Architecture. Deadline for application is
Feb. 29.
The Federal Government of
the West Indies is sponsoring
the third scholarship for graduate study. Completed applications should reach the Office of
the Commissioner for the West
Indies, British Guiana and British Honduras, 2100 Drummond
St., Room 460, Montreal, P.Q ,
by June 20.
Application forms may be received for the Hong Kong and
' Israel scholarships by writing to
The Chairman, National Scholarship Committee, WUS, 22 Wil-
cocks St., Toronto 5, Ont.
Further information concerning the three scholarships is
available through the local
WUSC committee, Brock Extension.
Next the Canadian Press had
picked up the story. It then went
to New York, where it was carried by the Associated Press, and
discovered by NBC.
By that time the monkey-
business was serious business.
Miss Karvanaque's manager,
Gelfellyn Ignatzio— a "third year
student — said that by this time,
"It was too late to do anything
else, so Ries and I went into business."    '
"I indoctrinated her with Zien
on the way to New York," Ignatzio said, "but she didn't get
a chance to use any of it."
She faced the comeras, and
solemnly read to the audience
from A. A. Milne's 'Winnie-The-
Miss Karvanaque was supposed to do a five-minute interview, but she proved such a
success that she was worked into
the show. Nancy Kovac, a top
American fashion model, was
also on the show. The producers
decided to have the two girls
face each other.
"So there they were," Ignatzio said, "Miss Kovac had a three
hour hairdo, and an expensive
white dress. The makeup had
been neatly patted on for the
occasion, Ries wore a black
sweater, and skirt, and no makeup. It was hate at first sight.'
"Of course there's nothing new
with your thinking, but I don't
mean that as an offence to you,"
Miss Kovac said.
Garroway asked the two girls
if they were antagonistic towards each other.
"I LIKE here", replied Miss
Kovac. Everyone turned to Ries.
"I'm feeling friendly," she
said haltingly, "but I got up in
a good mood this morning."
You could tell, what Garroway
thought about the comparison after the show, when he said, in
what almost beat vernacullar,
"There is nothing more disheartening than a pretty face, period.
You know?"

Better Understanding
—Fifteen McGill students are
endeavoring to experience real
hunger pangs by fasting for 48
Each participant will be given
a blanket and will sleep on the
floor of the Union Ballroom during the two nights of the ordeal.
The fast, under the auspices
of the Canadian European Society of McGill, will be opened
officially by a" conference on
"The role of the individual in
bringing about world brotherhood and in resolving international strife."
The participants are undergoing the fast to get a better understanding   of the   billions   of
people who have never had
enough to eat, and they emphasize that this is not a hunger
strike or a protest.
The College of Physicians and
Surgeons of the Province of
Quebec announced that they
would send doctors to the marathon at various times to check
the fifteen fasters.
During the ordeal the group
will discuss in detail many issues and initiate steps toward
their solution.
Some of the topics under discussion will be: "Can there be a
saint without a God?" "Population explosion and birth control," and "Conflicting ideologies."

ubc architects win prizes:
more and better to come
Head of the School of Architecture
Architecture in British Columbia has received much flattering commendation this past
year, and the University should rightfully feel some glow of reflected glory. Eleven*buildings
were chosen as the best and most significant pieces of architecture in Canada and of these
five were in Vancouver, including the War Memorial Gymnasium, the John C. H. Porter House,
the B.C. Electric Building and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, in the design of which members
of the University Facglty have had an important part to play. This year, in the Pilkington
Glass Company Travelling Scholarship competition between the best students in the Schools
of Architecture in Canada, fhe two submissions from U.B.C. won first and second prize. Many
other distinctions have accrued to members of the faculty of the School, to graduates and to
local architects and their buildings.
In such a happy atmosphere of success it may seem strange to some that the School is
changing its programme of training. It is a young School graduating its tenth class, while
other Schools of Architecture in Canada are graduating their fortieth or more class. Perhaps
it is just because the School Is young and the local architecture is not overly cluttered with the
past and has been able to grasp the realities of a new architecture for our age that a change
of educational ideas in this field have found ready acceptance.
As professional men architects are many things. They must combine a deep understanding
of physiological and psychological man and of his institutions, a basic knowledge in building
physics and engineering, a sound judgment in the arrangement of spaces and building components and a creative apresiation of the factors which make a building fine: a piece of
Architecture. The technique employed in Schools of Architecture to bring all of these aspects

in Architecture Gene Kinoshita, won first prize of $2500 in

into a meaningful educational expericence is the project method. Students relate, employ and
develop the theory through the creative solution of building projects. While the Architects'
increased responsibilities make it essential that they acquire a good broad grounding, it has
become clear that this can best be done prior to seduction by the creative work and prior to
the all-engrossing and time consuming concnetration demanded by the projects.
The new programme will rejquire a minimum of three years and a 65 percent average in
Arts and Science. During this time certain pre-requisite*courses will have to be taken. Following this liberal educational foundation, a further three years are occupied in concentrated
professional studies in the School of Architecture. This replaces the current one year of Arts
and Science and five years of Architecture which is typical of Schools elsewhere. At present
an increasing- number of Schools are changing into a graduate or semi-graduate programme.
Many of the senior and most distinguished Universities, such as Harvard, Princeton, Yale,
Pennsylvania, Minnesota and others, have also introduced a major in Architecture for the
Arts degree, which permits the student to obtain a professional degree with a further two to
three years in the School of Architecture. We, at this University, urge the students to obtain
their B.A. or B.Sc, prior to proceeding to their Bachelor of Architecture Course.
The School also offers graduate courses approved by the Senate of the University last
Spring. A student proceeding to his Master of Architecture degree is required to choose one
of three options: Housing, Structures or Theory of Design. While this is new, for the last eight
years a two year graduate course in Community and Regional Planning has existed within
the School and some of its graduates are now planning many of British Columbia's municipalities. The reputation of the School and its Staff in Planning has resulted in students being
sent to it for special training through the Columbo Plan Programme. These students come
mainly from Idonesia and South-East Asia, and also from the West Indies. This special training activity is in its third year.
The School looks forward to the construction of the Fine Arts Centre in which it will find
new quarters. Architecture is the Art of Fine, Building and has always been intimately associated with painting and sculpture. Recently science and engineering have become very important in the design of buildings. This resulted in a move away from Fine Arts into Faculties
of Engineering. This is a proper and legitimate move as long as Architecture does not forget
that it is the "art and science of fine building", the "mother art". Remaining a member of the
Faculty of Applied Science but housed in a Fine Arts Centre should provide the proper and
balanced setting for the education  of Architects.
To move from the huts will seem to the staff and the students of the School an encouraging
sign of the recognition it deserves for achievements already accomplished under the most
trying circumstances. It will be a challenge to raise further the level of architectural education
at the University — leading to the eventual production of better and more beautiful cities
for people to live in.

It is often true that at universities the most exciting thoughts
and ideas are produced out of conversations over coffee or
beer, than out of lectures.
A striking example of this occured fourteen years ago,
when two students sitting in Brock Hall came to the conclusion that UBC needed a School of Architecture. It was
probably a decision no less momentous than many that are
reached in over-coffee conversations; even considering at
the time, February 1946, the closest Canadian School of
Architecture was at the University of Manitoba and there was
no plan whatever for such a school at UBC.
Bsuyinvdnq of "ci7lovstmimJt"
Nevertheless, unlike so many decisions of this kind, it was
not forgotten with a sigh of dissolutioned idealism and a
"What can we do." The two instigators of the idea, Peter
Cotton and Frank Bankes, acted to make their dream a
Their first step was to form the Pre-architecture Club whose
membership was made up of the numerous people sympathetic to the 'movement'. Cotton was elected as the club's
president and Bankes was made secretary. By far the greatest majority of the club's members were frustrated architects
enrolled in engineering. Because of lack of money they were
unable to journey to Eastern Canada or U.S. schools of
Club mov&d Old
The club having been formed did not stand still. Question-
aires were sent out to high schools to assertain how many
students would enter a UBC School of Architecture. Local
artists and architects were interviewed and their help enlisted, as was the help of the Architectural Institute of B.C.
Dr.  MacKenzie  also gave the club  his support.
Seven months later UBC had a School of Architecture —
created for the most part by two students who believed
enough in their ideal, to work to make it a fact.
The UBC School of Architecture became the fourth school
of its kind in Canada. It joined the already established
schools at the University of Toronto, McGill, and the University of Manitoba. The Ecole des Beax Arts in Montreal has
since added an architectural  school.

Professor Lasserre, the present head of the school has been
in charge since the beginning. For the year of 1946 he could
have been nothing less than the head; he made up the entire

there were no students in third, fourth or fifth year.

Ubyssey Features Writer
It would seem that with the inception of the School of Architecture back in 1946 those
people respbnsible for faculty buildings worked on the following premises: architects and
artists, artists are often known to work in poor surroundings, therefore the architects should
work in poor surroundings. And so with this conclusion in mind these thinkers forged ahead
and erected-— with the aid of a number of rejected army huts (1914-1918) — a nucleus of
buildings to which the reference poor surroundings would be distinctly flattering.
These buildings were to bear the name School of Architecture — in extremely small print.
It wasn't that the architects were ashamed really, rather the amount of money budgeted for
the sign merely precluded any larger print.
JtumptohWu} ?Cui& Still Stand
But the huts were to be only a temporary measure, of course. When the school had come of
age it would certainly have a newer more modern building. Apparently, however, the school
has not yet come of age. For today those huts still stand — a little less proudly, perhaps,
than they did during the Great War — but, nevertheless, as erect as anything could with
termites gnawing at its very heart.
Some of you who have been indoctrinated by the Buchanan Building, the gymnasium, and
even the library — that monumental tribute to Feudalism—may not even realize the decayed
condition of the  buildings  which so  ironically house the School of Architecture. You need only

What do the architects themselves have to say about their buildings? They seem quite
"I'll be out of here this year," said one, giggling hysterically and neatly side-stepping a
new leak in fhe roof.
"Some of the guys, think the huts are cold in winter, but I don't find it so." said another,
snuggling into his battery-powered electric- blanket. "It's working by candlelight that gets me
— damn wax all over the drawings."
"S^laA diwiinq Jhsi $A8£dsi&i'
One student architect felt that "Tbe huts are nice in spring. I feel more creative when I
get close to nature, and with the robins nesting in the rafters, and the weeds coming up
through the floor, and the solar heating (he meant the sun comes through the holes in the
roof), they're the greatest." He smiled wanly and began his turn at bailing.
It might be interesting to note that the high stools on which architects sit were first used
by the UBC student architects; so that they might keep their feet dry. The stools then caught
on among other architects,, though in most cases the necessity was lacking.
Now you may say that, surely, I exaggerate the state of the architects accommodations;
certainly some modern improvements must have been made. And I must admit this is true.
As recently as 1951 coal-oil lamps were provided in the fifth year design studio. And a year
previously an outhouse was built less than a quarter of a mile from the main body of buildings. The architects are especially proud of this as it came into being after a keen competition
to which almost a hundred designs were submitted. It is possibly one of the finest examples
of 17th century  Baroque architecture in  Western Canada.
lAnfoAbm/de Qndudsmjt in Spdnq
It is even alleged that the office of the dean boasts a crank telephone and a small coal
fireplace. However, I do not care to support such a statement as it may lead to some amount
of bitterness among the other professors; especially in light of that unfortunate incident of last
year. I refer of course to the death by exposure of one of the professors when he dropped his
hand warmer into the murky waters of his office floor.
Yet despite all this the architects still have some small ray of hope, perhaps it is more of
a spark, say an ember. A new Fine Arts building has been proposed and the architects have
been asked (though not too loundly) to be a part of it. Not right away of course, for it seems
that only half of it is to be built at first, and, alas the architects are not in that half. But this,
of course, is only a temporary measure and. . .
