UBC Liberals
Swept Back
Into Office
By DIANE GREENALL \
(Ubyssey Staff Reporter)
After a two-year absence -UBC's Liberal Party form the
the official government in the Federal Model Parliament on.
campus.
Ken MacKenzie, the victorious president, says he hopes
this is an indication of a province-wide   trend  to» Liberalism.
The CCF party also scored a
major victory in yesterday's
elections by topping the Tories
and becoming the official opposition in the Model Parliament
for the first time in the history
of the campus.
This double Tory defeat reflects a dissatisfaction with our
present Federal Tory policy,
said Vic Anderson, president of
the Communist party on campus.
A new method of distributing
house seats in Model Parliament
is being used this year.
NEW MEXHOD
The victorious party now receives 41 of the total 80 seats
ragardless of the percentage of
the popular vote.
The other 39 house seats are
distributed among the other four
parties according to the percentage of their votes.
The official returns are as follows:
Votes
Seats
Liberals
733
41
CCF

16
Tories
533
15
Socreds
248
6
Communists
86

2186       80
This year's elections results
show a definite trend away from
last year's situation, which had
the Tories first, the Liberals a
close second and the CCF a lagging third.
For the third time in a row,
this year's results   show a   significant  increase  in the  CCF's
share of the vote.
MORE TOLERABLE
The Social Credit party seems
to be coming more tolerable to
UBC students. As a result of a
low turnout to the polls yesterday their total popular vote did
not increase but they got a higher percentage of the total votes
than  last year.
Model Parliament will be sitting for three consecutive days
this year, from Feb. 22-24.
Ken MacKenzie, president of
the Liberal club, will be prime
minister. Some members of his
cabinet will be Richard Sonley,
minister of trade and commerce,
Dave Johnston, External Affairs
minister and Dave Wilder, Minister of Defense. The other cabinet posts have not yet been finally decided on.
Tom Irwin, ex-Social Credit
speaker, will -give the speech
from the throne, on the opening day of parliament.
On the second day the Liberals plant to present two White
Papers, one on Defense and the
other on Trade. The third day
will be taken up with private
members' bills.
Fatal Inter-Faculty
Debates on Monday
The final round of, the
Inter-faculty Debates will
take place in Bu. 212 at noon
Monday.
Resolved: "That Canada
should annex the United
States." Arts will take the
negative and Law the affirmative.
The winner will go against
Medicine for the Inter-faeulty
debating   championship   symbolized by the USC Debating.

Cornwall,
Charrow Get
Council Posts
Alan Cornwall and Fran Char-
kow are the two newest members of next years AMS Council.
Cornwall was elected Wednesday to the post of First Member at Large as 2,265 students
hit the polls.
Cornwall received 1545 votes,
his opponent, Robert Squires,
getting 667.
Miss Charkow became President of the Associated Women
Students at 4 p.m. yesterday as
nominations closed, with no
other aspirants for the post submitting papers.
So apathy again filled a Council post ,but this time it was only
one of the five vacancies on the
slate. Three of four posts were
filled by acclamation on the first
slate nominations a week ago.
• Eleven contestants will mount
campaigns as they fight for the
four positions still available on
the slate.
Leading off the list is the battle between Russell Brink and
Russ Robinson for the post of
Treasurer.
A three-way battle is shaping
up for the Men's Athletic Association President, as Don Robertson, Chris Scott, and Keh
Winslade throw their hats into
the ring.
Women's Athletic Association
hopefuls are Inge Andreen anft
Sidney  Shadespeare.
The largest pack is snapping
after the Second Member-at-
Large position. Merv. Hanson,
Garry Nixon, Eric Ricker ami-
Rudy Schadd will stamp the hustings seeking support in their

LETTERS  TO  THE   EDITOR
D®m a PhD, Guarantee
A Successful Teacher?
MANCHESTER GUARDIAN
Is not our growing tendency to appoint no instructors
who are not also doctors an instance of pure sham? Will any-
. one pretend for a moment that the doctor's degree is a guarantee that its possessor will be successful as a teacher?
Notoriously, his moral, social and peronal character-lies may
utterly disqualify him for success as a teacher; and. of these
characteristics his doctor's examination is unable io take
any account whatever.
To most laymen, even more to most students, those
words must sound like platitudes. In most American uni-
*~ versifies they would sound like heresy—and heresy unsweetened by the faet that they were written by one of
the greatest American scholars, William James.
For the Ph,I>. is-the union card of the American academic profession, and few good union members are likely
to belittle the appre^iticeshap through which they themselves once passed.
Like all selection processes the Ph.D. perpetuates it-
. self: Those who have been selected by it naturally feel
that it selects the best people.
Does it? ' ,
In "The Graduate School and the Decline of Liberal
~ Education," a pamphlet put out by the teachers college of
Columbia University, Mr. Earl'McGrath argues powerfully that it does not.
Liberal education, he thinks, has been almost killed
by the growth of the great graduate schools which brought
it about.   -
The graduate schools have most prestige (and money).
It is on them that the aspiring academic sets his sights;
and from them that the academic profession as a whole
gets its standards—in particular its insistence on the Ph-D.
For someone who wants to 'teach undergraduates it
can be a monstrous irrelevance.
After all, the Ph.D. does not, and cannot, test teaching
ability—it tests aptitude for scholarship. Even worse, the
values instilled by the PhD. programs may cripple the
good teacher.
Too often, academic promotion in the United States
is the reward for published works, not inspiring teaching
—and the pupil suffers.
SO YOU WANT A GRADUATE JOB?
Graduates take the following
steps immediately:
(1) Register at the UBC Employment Service—Hut m-6—
and fill in a Graduate Personal
Record.
(2) Check back periodically to
arrange interviews,  etc.
(3) Pick up a National Employment Service Form (the
Federal Agency) at the AMS Office.
(4) Fill in the form and retain it.
(5) Phone Mr. McKenney
(MU 1-8253) to arrange for an
appointment at the NES Office,
1145 Robson.
(6) Go to the appointment and
look at the various jobs available in your field.
(7) If you secure a job on your
own,   notify   both   agencies.
Take these steps now. The
later you wait, the poorer the
selection.
CONCERNING SUMMER
EMPLOYMENT
For information, suggestions,
or complaints concerning summer employment contact any
member of the Student Employment Committee or Councillor
John Goodwin, AMS Box 73.
Editor,
A modest proposal: I would
like to suggest that all future
home games of the UBC Thunderbirds basketball team be
played in the Riddington Room.
This would combine the most
characteristic features of the
Gym and Library, namely:
1. A large crowd would be
assured. Each evening the Library contains a near-capacity
crowd. It should be pyt to some
use more beneficial to the University than studying.
2. The silence which presently
pervades the Gym when the
Thuderbirds play could ' better
be used in the Library.
At half-time the athletes
could browse through the stacks
and thus partake of cerebral
exercise. The intelligensia gathered as ^spectators could do cal-
esthenics. For special games, the
group of Sweet Young Things on
display in the Library every day
could put on a display of table-
hopping. They could also serve
as cheerleaders and thus satiate
their innate urge for attention.
This proposal will meet with
initial resistance, but those who
regard it with pragmatic object- .
ivity will realize its utilitarian
advantages. Sincerely,
STUART ROBSON, Arts II.
Dear Sir:
I just wish you would print
this. I really do. On behalf of
the mapority of Education students we would like you to do
all in your power to help us
change Sadie Hawkin's Day to
another date. The reason is that
all of us (except first year students) will be out practice teaching in Vancouver chools from
February 15-26. You know what
that means, don't you? It means
that hundreds of lovelies will not
be on campus for the big event.
How are we supposed to kill
that ridiculous legend about
teachers being old maids if they
don't give us our one chance on
Sadie Hawkin's Day. So, I
think it would be really good-if
you published this letter. I
really do. I think that maybe
the "fellas" will see the fix we're
in and maybe they'll do something about it. So please publish this.    Please really do.
Really and truly all yours,
SEXY SECTION 20,
Education.
Dear Sir:
In reply to Mr. Bromige's
criticism of the Theatre Department's production of Shaw's
Arms and the Man, quaintly
entitled "Too Many Snooks",
I would like to add a few comments, and ask Mr. Bromige a
few questions.
I ask you, Mr. Bromige, what
does an "impeccable performance" entail? If it entails a lack
of adequate projection — lines
delivered in just that manner—
as lines ,then Mr. Clothier's performance was certainly impeccable. I don't mean to infer
that Mr. Clothier delivered all
his lines in this manner, but
when only the front half of the
auditorium laughs, something
is wrong.
Possibly Mr. Bromige is too
prone to criticize the amateurs
harshly, and either lacks the
knowledge (or the intestinal
fortitude) to have a go at the
professionals! The rest of his
critique, when taken in this
light, assumes a much better
proportion, and makes for light,
amusing reading.
R. McAfee.
The Editor,
Dear Sir:
This is in reply to the letter
you printed in the Feb. 9 Ubyssey over the name of one Eric
Ricker, Fort Camp Vice-President.
Dear Mr. Ricker:
And furthermore — twaddle,
because that's what your letter
was.
So I misinterpreted your
ideas, did I? That's a pretty neat
trick, considering I had heard
most of them at the Haskins
Commission meeting preceding
the one you attended.
As you say, your brief was
astoundingly like that presented
by Don North. Nice of you to
admit it.
I had, incidentally, included
the "essence" of your brief in
my story as originally submitted. It was the first thing to
get the axe when our Senior Editor found she had too much
copy. We find enough things to
print, so called "news" that we
do not have to wast space running the  same material twice.
As to the headline to which
you object so strongly. I think
it fully justified. That most students on this campus are apathetic with regard to student
government has been aptly illustrated by. the disgusting response to calls for first slate
nominations, and will no doubt
be further pointed up in the
election going on as I write this.
The headline was catchy, it
drew attention to the story. It
made people aware that the Haskins Commission was still alive
and kicking. It was good!
Furthermore, I saw that head
before it was printed and agreed
to it as proper for the. story, as
a true and honest report on
what I had heard at the meeting. In spite of your cries of innocence after the fact, you did
not draw any clear distinction
between past and future when
you made your proposal. I believe that I drew a valid inference from what you said, though
what you meant was obviously
another thing entirely.
I am bound by the Code of
Ethics for Student Journalism as
set up by the Canadian University press, and as such must, according to section 1, "strive continuously to be unbiased and accurate" in my reports. I do. I do
not believe that this is one of
the culpable mistakes for which
the Code requires an apology.
In short, Mr. Ricker, I challenge the claim you begin your
letter with — "I will now set
clear the facts as I stated them
previously." You have instead
set forth the facts as you should
have stated them originally.
You say, for instance, that I
term candidates "drift." The
quotation marks in my story
were there because I was inserting a verbatim report of what
you said at the meeting. You,
not I, used the word "drift".
Let's not forget it Mr. Ricker.
This sort of quibbling is insignificant in the light of .your
proposal, which was new to me
as you presented it to the Commission, Mr. Ricker. I have
since been informed that it has
been kicking around for quite
a while. This does not detract
from its importance, and I, for
one, would like to see it adopted.
But let us remember that it
was the only new idea you
brought up, and, as such, the
only newsworthy item in your
brief ,aside from that rather
condescending request to ask
the views of the Political
Science Department and other
universities . on constitutional
changes.
One final shot. Your wonderful white-wash brush ran slapdash over all councils and councilors since the. formation of the
AMS when you said, "I do not
believe any such 'drift' candidates have run for council in
the past or actually hold positions   at the present time."
Now really, Mr. Ricker! Allow us just one piece of "drift"
in the procession of councilors
over the years and I will be
somewhat comforted, but the
spectacle of all those pure lily-
white blue blazers marching
down time to the present is just
pne too many for me. I envy
you your faith in mankind, Mr.
Ricker, and I hope you will be
disillusioned gently when the
time comes.
Yours in hope,
Derek Allen.

"Fabulous Froggers"
Editor, Feb.  14,  1960.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Crocodile tears are shed repeatedly over the ass supposedly
sacrificed at the podium.
The hypocracy brought to
light by the Tim Buck fiasco
filled us with ecstasy, being
macchiavellian sorts, to see so
many sanctimonious individuals
condescendingly vent righteous
indignation while exposing their
mentalities. This circus, which
must have been anticipated, was
either the prodigy of gross inefficiency or contrivance. Tim
Buck has spoken here before.
So have the good Mr. Bennett
and the esteemed- Mr. Bonner.
The same mass hysteria prevailed at their meetings. No one
can convince us that what happened was not expected and yet
there was no attempt made to
control the situation before it
developed. A great deal could
have been done to insure orderly and intelligent rebuttals
through effective organization
and leadership.
The rank odor of rotting donkey meat emanates not from the
podium, but from those asses in
the audience hooving their disapproval. The stench thickens
when reprimands on their behaviour are brayed ineffectually
too loud, too late.

FIVE - THIRTY CLUB
By FRED FLETCHER
By FRED  FLETCHER
USC Chairman Ross Husdon made tne startling assertion
at Monday night's council meeting that the first-slate acclamations might be the fault of the Ubyssey.
This is rather amazing in view of the fact that Husdon
and USC are in charge of AMS elections.
If the three editorials and numerous news stories were
not sufficient, one would think that it would be up to the election committee to ascertain that more publicity was given.
Husdon himself is hardly above censure. He was unable
to produce more than one (i) capable candidate for his own
position.
And—if we are to believe First Member John Goodwin
(who incidentally had two candidates vyeing for his position)
—it is the responsibility of each councillor to make sure that
two capable people are running for his office.
Perhaps, Mr. Husdon's obsessive opposition to goon candidates (those sponsored by the Ubyssey and others) has
turned him against bona fide candidates.
Perhaps, he  prefers  acclamations.
No—Mr.   Husdon—I   don't  think   you  can   shift   the
blame onto the Ubyssey.
The time required by council work and the laxity of
councillors in getting candidates interested this year must
rank as the chief culprits.

It has been stated in this space that if students did not
take a more active interest in student government the administration would take it over.
It has been pointed out to me since that time, that this is
incorrect. In fact, my informers say, the administration will
do everything in its power to maintain student government.
A UBC History Professor stated recently that in a large
university the intrigues that go on are much like those that
existed in the king's court in the French Ancient Regime.
In short, this means that there is a great deal of politicking in the high levels of the university administration.
This is certainly the case at UBC, and, for this reason, the
Students' Council is useful to the administration.
*
*
The administration shifted the responsibility for fighting
the fee increase of last year onto the shoulders of the Students'
Council.
. As one member of the Board of Governors allegedly said
to student officials: 'you can say a lot more than we can."
Right now, student officials are fighting a move for segregation by sex in the camps. This move is reportedly backed
"by very influential people." For this reason it is a hot potato
for the administration, who, fearing loss of political prestige,
have left it to the students.
So, people, you don't have to worry about student government—the administration will keep it around as long as it
suits their political purposes.
V V *P
"Should I enforce the no-eating-in-the-Brock rule?" asked
WAA President Marg McLachlan Monday night.
<. This is the prevalent attitude on Council. They make
rules and don't enforce them.
This week they took some action. They told Pete Haskins
toN tell the discipline committee to enforce the rule.
Perhaps, everyone should bring their cereal box-tops so
that the committee can send away for some spiff y-jiffy sheriff's badges.
Council took its "stand" Monday night—but, as of Thursday noon, students were still munching merrily in the Brock
lounge.
Council should either enforce the rule or repeal it.
Ian Stewart, MAA President, said of councillors Monday
night, "we have become very efficient administrators."
This is efficient administration?
Also in the field of discipline Stewart moved that the
Council Office be closed because of its filthy condition. Come
to think of it, the office does resemble the card room.
The motion was ruled out of order by President Meekison. He stated that council work had to go on; but, he did
urge the councillors to try to keep the place cleaner.
Probably, he didn't realize the urgency of the situation.
He has a separate office.
*
*
*
The duties of the Co-ordinator of Activities are being
reviewed by a Students' Council committee.
The probe was sparked by Ian Stewart, who complained
vociferously about the clash of events that occurred the weekend before last (Mardi Gras, basketball game, dance marathon and  a  theatre  department production).
Present Co-brdinator, Russ Brink, pointed out that all.
these events but the marathon were beyond his control. The
probe will try to ascertain what could be done to bring all
these activities under one co-ordinator or co-ordinating body.

COUNCIL QUICKIES
Vice-President Peter Haskins made a vehement attack on
Fort Camp food Monday night. He brought an unpalatable
piece of half-cooked liver as exhibit "A".
Students' Council has decided to hold its meeting next
Monday night in the Brock lounge. Any of you who wish to
gaze at sixteen blue-clad councillors (and me) are invited to
attend.
Congratulations to the three new councillors: Wendy
Rosen, Secretary; Chris Davies, USC Chairman; and new
First Member Allan Cornwall, who was elected Wednesday.
Congrats also to new President, Dave Edgar.
You tired of hearing Radsoc on Brock phones? So are
Students'  Councillors.
University Clubs have lagged far behind in their support for the Student Executive Conference.
By the by, there seem io be lots of nominations for
second slate positions—the council bulletin board seems io
be a veritable forest of nomination papers in comparison to
last weeks sparse coverage.

Perrault Hints UBC Aid
In Blueprint of Future
Provincial Liberal Party leader Ray Perrault has a "blueprint of the future" for B.C. which includes a better deal for
university students.
PERRAULT
"Unlock human resources and
you unlock those of a physical
nature," said Mr. Perrault, in
his address to an orderly but
sparsely filled Brock Lounge on
Tuesday noon.
To implement this at UBC, he
stated that a system of equali-
tarian grants, enabling those
students from the interior to
bear the brunt of university expenses would be included in the
Liberal program, plus the provision of expenses of transportation to and from the university.
Mr. Perrault further stated
that the greatest resources of
this province is the people, and
in  order to realize this  poten
tial a better deal must come to
the university students.
"Graduates of UBC are the
seed grain of B.C.," continued
the Liberal leader, saying he was
dismayed with the present provincial government's attitude toward education.
In order to present the issues
of the labor-management crises
in B.C., Mr. Perrault proposed a
Labor - Management Research
centre on campus—whose set of
statistics would replace the two
submitted by labor and management.
Mr. Perrault went on to criticize Social Credit governmtent
for the system of tree farm licenses, saying it is necessary to
"revise the whole "system" which
Soap Boxers Challenged
WHY WAIT TILL SPRING? DO IT NOW!

The SCM formally challenge

ideological persuasions, to express, in open air forums,
their views on the fundamental problems that confront our
society.
Three    times    recently,    two
The SCM formally challenges
SCM members, Alan Rimmer
and Hartley Dent have spoken
from soap boxes between the
Buchanan Building and the
Library.
This challenge is the latest
development of the Hyde-Park
movement   on campus.
Why? Because, as Dent said
in an interview Wednesday,
since the veterans left UBC, this
campus has shrunk morally due
to the creeping paralysis of
apathy.
Because of being spared the
disillusionment of war and living in a wealthy country most
of today's university students
just don't care. They have become insulated to the problems
in our society and those of the
world generally, he said.
U n e m ployment, alcoholism,
and mental health are but a
few of these problems. Dent felt
that it was mostly lack of exposure to these problems that
has caused this indifference or
apathy.
Dent said that the fundamental purpose of his sermons had
been to expose the students to
the problems in our society, to
make students question the fundamental concepts of our society
and finally, to establish Christianity as a subject of debate.
In an interview Wed., Rev.
Roy deMarsh, National Secretary of the SCM, said that in a
discussion group at Athens,
Ohio last year he had challenged
university religious leaders to
lead in the fight against apathy
despite the fact that "very few
Christians on campus are willing to deliver an address to a
popular gathering of students
because of the fear of the intellectually brilliant."
at present is "subject to abuses
which create monopolies."
POPULAR OPINION
Mr. Perrault attempted ,to
justify the recent legislation of
Newfoundland Premier Small-

Mr. Perrault encountered the

Of how many student Liberals

question remained unresolved.

The issue of the publication
of campaign sources and expenditures was also brought into

large trade unions. He inferred

UBC Enters Race
For Corpuscle Cup
University of B.C. has been challenged to a Blood Drive
competition by other NFCUS universities across Canada.
UBC  ENTERS
If the Red Cross Blood Drive
being held from Feb. 8-19 is a
success, UBC should be an important contender for the coveted Corpuscle Cup.
. At least 65% of UBC students
are expected to contribute blood.
Rejects due to age restrictions or
health are credited in the final
score.

UBC's final Blood Drive score
is both ingenious and complicated.
First the total amount of blood
contributed is weighed. The sum
total is then subjected to a highly complicated formula originally designed by a competent
UBC mathematician.
After this process is finished,
inequalities in university enrollments and publicity opportunities are ruled out.
UBC's final contribution will
not be determined until Feb. 19.
But students may do their part
to aid sick persons as well as to
meet the challenge of other universities by donating blood now
in the Armouries.
Let's win the Corpuscle Cup!

In NFCUS Debate
Derek Frazer   and   Darcy   Reddyhoff   will   represent  the
western league in  the NFCUS debating championships.
NFCUS DEBATES PLAYOFFS
The four students, who represented UBC and won the McGoun Cup, debated yesterday to
see which two of the four will
go to the NFCUS finals in
March.
Teams from the four debating
leagues in Canada—the western
league, Ontario and Quebec, the
Maritimes and the French-speaking league, will be representee
in these finals.
In yesterday's debates all four
participants were required to
prepare both the affirmative and
the negative to the resolution-
Resolved: "Surrender to the
USSR is preferable to risking
the annihilation of mankind in
war."
At the commencement of the
debate the chairman, Prof. Elliot, of classics, had the speakers draw slips of paper to decide
which side of the resolution
each would debate and, in what
order.
In the finals the side of the
resolution taken ,by the UBC
team will be decided in a like
manner.    The   same   resolution
will be debated at this time.
Yesterday, Peter Hebb and D.
Reddyhoff debated the affirmative of the resolution while D.
Frazer and Ken Hodginson took
the negative. The judges, Dr_
McKenzie, Prof. Read and Mr.
J. deBruyn of the English dept.,
decided in favor of the negative
by 2 to 1.
Frazer, speaking for the negative, defined "surrender" to include every field, material and
ideological. He said this would
be mass spiritual and physical
suicide on the part of the west.
Reddyhoff, for the affirmative, lauded the greater advancements of the Soviets in
all fields and compared the superior socialist society to the
corruption and misplaced values
of the bourgeois Western civilization.
He stated that already half
the workers in the world are in
the fold of the workers revolution. He called upon the people
to castigate the U.S. efforts in
preparing the virulent weapons
of war and join the opposing
camp.

for good leadrship. In addition
Don was president of the Booster Club, member of the Frosh

One of the biggest
threats to health in
British Columbia today is tuberculous.
An average of 50
new, active cases of
the disease are found
every month, and
there are 21 ,500
known cases in the
province.
And since TB is a contagious disease,
every unknown case is a potential danger
to other citizens.
What's more, tuberculosis hits everyone's
pocketbook. It costs $15,000 to treat and
rehabilitate an average TB case and, since
treatment is given free by the government,
everybody helps pay for it through taxes.
The tragic thing about the .high cost and

it is unnecessary.

Birds Tie Series
With Thrilling Win
// Was A
Big Show
By ERNIE HARDER
JACK POMFRET'S weary
Thunderbirds came to life Wednesday night. They treated over
600 delighted student supporters to the most spectacular hoop
show of the season . . . and
there'll be more of the same
Tuesday night at Winston
Churchill Gym.
Thunderbirds, in the middle
of a gruelling schedule that
could ultimately lead to the
Olympics, revealed no signs of
tiring Wednesday. But it has
ibeen an uphill climb all the
way.
They have a weekend stint in
Winnipeg before returning to
cope with D.C.'s in the rubber
match of their three-game semifinal Tuesday.
HOLLYWOOD
(PRODUCTION
Fans at Wednesday night's
game didn't need much basketball knowledge to participate in
spectator thrills that were a
dime a dozen.
In fact, the series with Dietrich-Collins is shaping up more
like a Hollywood production
/than an inter-city basketball
playoff.
Wednesday night the regular
Thunderbird quintet, along with
lanky Mike Potkonjak; all played the hero role. Except for a
Sbrief appearance of Ed Gushue
and alternation between Pot-
lionjak and Keith Hartley, the
starters went all the way for
'Birds.
MIKE  SHARES  GLORY
Potkonjak, the former high
school star with Cumberland
has had some exciting moments
on UBC's spongy gym floor.
They include the all star pivot
performance with Cumberland
in the B.C. high school basketball tourney a few years ago.
At that time, the local press
termed our Mike a "flapping
Ichabod Crane, who was unbeatable on the inside." Wednesday
night .along with Hartley, he
was faced with the formidable
task of hand-cuffing Bob Pickell. He handled his chore superbly, and although veteran
"Pick" emerged as the game's
high point-getter with 25 points,
it was consoling, compared with
the 38 he dunked in the first
game.
Before fouling out and receiving the ovation of his life, Mike
managed. eight points  himself.
The crucial tilt, against D.C.'s
provided third year man Ed
Pederson excellent opportunity
to live up to his reputation as
a consistent shooter. His *'wig-
gly" jump from the field had
eyes Wednesday night.
The artistry of agile Ken
"Wind-'slade, whose basketball
ability is a treat to watch, the
offensive and defensive backboard work of bullying Wayne
Osborne (as well as his most
consistent shooting display of
the year), the regular, strong
two-way performance of burly
Barry Drummond—it all went
to make up an oustanding show.
What's more, it kept UBC's
Olympic hopes very much alive.
Here's a prediction that Tuesday night's clash at Winsten
Churchill, 56th and Heather,
will be a repeat performance.
By MIKE HUNTER
UBC Thunderbirds whalloped Dietrich-Collins 87-63 Wednesday to square their best-of-three semi-final at a game
apiece.
The deciding game will be
played Tuesday night at 8:30 at
the Winston Churchill gym. In
the first game, played Monday
at Churchill, Dietrich-Collins
dumped the Birds 76-64.
Wednesday, the Birds played
their best game of the year, and
the resulting action really raised
the roof at the Memorial Gym.
Almost 800 rabid Bird-boosters
lustily cheered the heroics of
Mike Potkonjak, Ed Pederson,
Wayne Osborne, Barry Drummond and Ken Winslade
CROWD LOVES MIKE
They likewise jeered and
rattled the enemy" players so
much that they missed routine
layups. And when Potkonjak
left the floor after fouling out
in the fourth quarter, the ovation shook the rafters. Mike,
who was called up from the
Jayvees for the game in an attempt to stop Bob Pickell, did
just that.
Potkonjak's hustle on offence
seemed to give the whole Birds
team    a lift.    He    deked    out
Sports Car
Club Wins
Two members of the UBC
Sports Car Club won top honors in the Van-Man-Van car
rally.
Winners were Mike Procter,
driver and Ivar Keddis, navigator.
The rally, one of • the most
arduous and biggest motor rallies in the Pacific Northwest,
attracted a total of 103 entries.
GAIN RESPECT
In gaining the victory, UBC
Sports Car Club achieved a respected position in both racing
and rallying in the Pacific
Northwest. They competed with
top entries from south of the
border.
The second entry from the
UBC Sports Car Club, Kerry
Smith and Ed Kenney, placed
high up in the final results.
The competition, through
rain, snow, darkness and back-
road, as well as mountain trails
was based on specified arrival
times at 20 check points.
The rally, staged Sunday covered a course from Vancouver
to Manning Park and back. The
event was staged by the Sports
Car Club of B.C.
Pickell several times, and scored on some dazzling drives.
ED, WAYNE GET 22
Both Pederson and Osborne
piled up 22 points in addition to
shining on defence. Osborne
picked off 21 rebounds, which
is believed to be a new UBC
record. Barry Drummond also
grabbed 18, as Dietrich-Collins
were clobbered to the boards.
Barry added three or four driving layups, and picked up 11
points. Ken Winslade got 14,
and guided the Birds controlled-
break attack.
The game had everything —
including a couple of good beefs.
Ed Malecki performed the villain's role. Midway through the
second quarter, Malecki mixed
it up with Birds' Ed Gushue.
Immediately, Ed Pederson and.
Barry Drummond arrived on
the scene to look over the situation. Suddenly big Wayne Osborne roared off the Birds bench
with the intention of tearing
Mr. Malecki in half, which is
a pretty tough thing to do to a
man like Malecki.
BIG SPLURGE
The Birds trailed 20-15 at
quarter time, but jumped ahead
38-31 in.the hectic second quarter. In the third quarter they
increased their lead to 54-43,
and turned on the power to
score a tremendous 33 points in
the final period. At the end, the
D-C's were just run off their
feet by the hustling collegians.
Tonight and tomorrow, the
Birds are in Winnipeg -to play
the second-place WCIAU team,
the University of Manitoba.
The Birds can clinch the college title with a win in either
game. And whatever you do,
don't miss that semi-final game
next Tuesday at Churchill. That
crowd support Wednesday really
helped the Birds.

What Mates ftp Corn ftp?
Popping corn contains water. When the water gets hot enough,,
the kernel explodes. Result: popcorn.
We're not passing this information along as a public _
service. Actually we're up to the same old game.
You see, popcorn makes most people thirsty.  ■
Fortunately, when most people get-thirsty |
they hanker for the good taste of Coca-Cola.
Wouldn't you like some popcorn right now?
C'mon now, wouldn't you?

SIDNEY SHAKESPEARE
For experience, enthusiasm
and initiative, I know of no one
who is better qualified than Sidney ShakesBeare for the position
of  WAA  President.
With WAA" enlarging it's scope
says
"Here's real proof that
Canadians are thrifty"
One of those fascinating bits of information that
is produced by research came to me the other day:
A study has revealed that the average Canadian
smokes his. cigarettes a quarter of an inch shorter
than his counterpart in the United States. Why?
Better tobacco? Higher cigarette tax? Personally, I
believe it's because the average Canadian is determined to get his money's worth.
In spite of the free-wheeling philosophy of our
times, with Canada's rapid economic growth and
the rise in personal income, the virtues of thrift and
a strong sense of values remain part of our national
character. Most Canadians have worked hard themselves for the good things they now enjoy ... and
they are not casual about them yet.
This attitude is evident when Canadians stop to
choose an insurance plan. They demand their
money's worth ... and get it, from North American
Life and Casualty. (3ur fast-growing family of policy
holders is confident that its choices have been wise.
Check for yourself. Our NALAC representative
will give you all the evidence you need.
...insure confident living

by entering into the WCIAU,
budgetary, administrative and
publicity problems have increased. Only a person who has
had experience in all three
areas will be able to handle
these problems.
That Sidney has had this experience is shown by her past
activities:
* Big   Block—treasurer   1958-

* WAA—Badminton   manager

I urge you to vote for Sidney

Second Member
GARY NIXON
In nominating Gary Nixon for
Second Member at Large I have
in mind a particular quality of
his which I consider to.be almost
unique: Mr. Nixon is completely
straightforward.
It is because I think that it
would be nice to have a member
on the Council who is sincere,
without duplicity, and who is
unafraid to voice an opinion and
to fight for it that I recommend
Mr. Nixon for your consideration.       —WAYNE   RICHARDS.
RUDY SCHAAD
It gives me- pleasure to recommend Rudy Schaad as a candidate for the position of Second
Member at Large. Since the accomplishments of this office are
determined primarily by the
initiative of the elected official,
it is of the utmost importance
that the Second Member be a
person with a genuine interest
in student affairs. Rudy is an
excellent organizer and has the
ability to get things done quickly and efficiently. These qualities and his desire for able administration make him well
suited as a candidate for this
position.       —ED SCHROEDER.
ERIC  RICKER
It is with particular pleasure
that I second Eric Ricker for
the position of AMS 2nd member. Eric's past record: Vice-
President of Fort Camp, Leadership Conference, UN Model Assembly, and membership on the
food services and housing committees which it is the 2nd mem*
ber's responsibility to chair,
speaks for itself.
Any effective organization requires perpetuality, \hus far
lacking in next year's Council
in view of the graduating status
of a great majority of those persons now elected and presently
running. Eric, a third year student planning on a three year
Law course and possessing those
qualities of leadership, ability
and experience necessary to the
responsible position of a Student Councillor would, in my
estimation, be a valuable asset
to Council and warranting of
your vote.
Sincerely,
Stan Mader.
