Sujhmer Jobs For Students
■y •
Clouded With Uncertainty
by DIANNE GREENALL
The summer job situation for
university students is shrouded
with a. cloud of uncertainty.
John Goodwin, chairman of
the Student Committee on Employment doubts if there will
be any improvement over last
year. He said he cannot foresee
more stable conditions until
there are more definite arrangements between management and
labour.
The National Employment
Service is very optimistic about
summer job opportunities.
At the present time they report that there are considerably
less people unemployed now
than there were at this time last
year.
If this continues and if there
are no strikes or layoffs students
should be able to look forward
to a prosperous summer, reported their Public Relations
Office.
Most companies have not even
begun  to   consider  summer  re
placements so early in the year
but there are a few applications
available now for senior undergraduates who would consider
working for the company on a
full time basis after graduation.
WHERE   TO   APPLY
Places which, students should
apply when looking for a job
this summer are:
The  National  Employment
Service   which  sets   up   an   office on campus later on in the
term.
The UBC Employment Service which starts taking applications early in March.
Various facets of the lumbering, mining, and pulp and
paper industries should be applied to in person. The more
applications you have the
greater your chance of getting
a position.
Transportation facilities and
Summer   resorts   hire   many
students, but the pay is quite
low in most cases.
University students  seem  to
have a preferred status when it
comes to  getting part-time employment. .
Large firms such as- Crown
Zellerback, the CKR, and the
Pacific Press said they make, it
a policy to help. as. many, students as possible.     -
These firms also give the added opportunity of chances for
advancement during the summer.
In this way students have opportunities for a pay increase
each summer and seniority if
they are employed on a full time
basis upon graduation.
We do not like to offer certain jobs to university students
because they do not pay enough
money said a Pacific Press Representative.
ORGANIZATION  HELP
Two organizations to help
students in the employment
field are the 'Society for Advancement of Management"
UBC Chapter and the "Students
Committee on Employment."
The UBC Chapter of The
Society   for    Advancement    of
Management has been planning
activities to help improve the
relationship between the university " arid industry in the Province.
On Saturday, January 16, they
held a "clinic" attended by B.C.
business men, students, and
UBC faculty.
The "Clinic" highlighted a
panel discussion on "Training, a
Joint Responsibility of University and Business." Student field
projects were also demonstrated.
The purpose of the Student
Committee on Employment is to
inform students of the services
offered by the University Employment Service, and to offer
suggestions  and   to   assist   th«
UES in any way possible.
They are making an attempt
to do this by encouraging "potential employers to hire UBC students and by distributing em*
ployment information to students. Faculty members are also
encouraged to promote student
employment.

The AMS Committee investigating the student housing
situation outside the university gates met for the first time
today.

Treasurer Dave Edgar will
head the group which consists
of Peter Haskins, John Hogarth,
Lynn Rodgers and Jim Meekison.
The meeting decided that the
first thing to be done was to
have the legal situation clarified.
Law student John Hogarth will
get a copy of the bylaw to be
enforced and report on its implications.
The only information the committee has at present is that reported in the Ubyssey last week;
ers will be allowed in Point Grey
homes under the June 18, 1956,
by-law.
It is the intention of the City
Planning Board to enforce this
by-law within ten years which
has prompted the formation of
the AMS Committee.
Other members will be sounding out opinion among students
and homeowners as to the city's
action, and trying to find out
just how many homes have been
affected to date.
In this latter connection, any
Littering Discussed By
Arms Sub-Committee
What can be done to keep the
UBC campus clean and free
from litter.
This was the subject under
discussion at a meeting of a
sub-committee of the University
Public Relations Committee.
This committee, composed of
one representative from each
of the faculty, students council
and the athletics department,
met last week to study the litter
problem on this campus and
make recommendations about
how it may be alleviated.
As a result of the study made
by the committee the Students
Council will receive a request
that it initiate an anti-litter campaign.
However no such campaign
will be started until Council
can be assured that it will receive full cooperation from the
that only twp roomers or board-1 students with information regarding notices given to houses
with illegal rooming quarters
are asked to contact Pete Haskins through the AMS Office.
The committee will report to
council as soon as possible with
as great a cross section of opinion and fact as they are able
to assemble.
Anybody with suggestions,
ideas or information, contact a
committee member or write the

It was pointed out that there
should be provided a greater
number of waste receptacles
placed in suitable and strategic
places. It was recommended that
special consideration be given
to the playing fields and parking lots.
The recommendation was
made that the faculty could aid
in this campaign by setting an
example as well as drawing attention to the situation in their
classes.
A further suggestion was
made that the administration increase fiie number of employees

be brought by using another

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
On Si
The Senate Library Committee has again appealed to
the Students' Council to take effective measures to curb
once and. for all, the noise in the Library.
This is not the first time such a request has been
made but with full student co-operation, it could be the
last. Prpvfous drives have been effestive for tew© or three
weeks but thea the crescendo h$& begun once more. Noise
from the mam* entrance hall, al^augh it has been recently
acoustic-tiled, still fikers up into tlje Hasan reading room.
Because the physical structure of the Library is suda that
it increases rather than diminishes sounds, it is more than
ever important that the students make a concerted effort
to be quiet.
The facilities provided are for study purposes, to supplement knowledge gained in the classroom; not for social
purposes. If your neighbour is talking, ask him (or her!)
to be quiet or leave.  Brock Hall provides ample room fer
!   discussiom
| If you are looking for a seat, take an empty one. Books
!   do woti reserve-a space:   The shortage of sufficient .study
room makes it seem only reasonable that' the majority of
;   students should not suffer because of* a few inconsiderate
individuals.
! Many argue that talking does not matter as construc
tion noises detract one from studying. It is true that, this
is a serious distraction, but the weskmen stop at 4:30. Unfortunately the talking does not. The new wing will be
completed next Fall so this excuse will be no longer valid.
!Hhe example is set for new students by upper classmen.
This is your responsibility if you desire to study.
If the students cannot quell the noise effectively
themselves, the Library Committee has no alternative but
to hire commissionaires to keep .s^enpe. The last thing, the
Students' Council wants is such a tjwaat to student
autc_.qrny. We,have two ohoicj^^cfimrnisskmaires or self-
■JisciBlihe. It's up to you now:
Hffll MSEKISON,
President, Alma: JVTater Society.

Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I would like to comment on
•the articte, in the January 14,
I960, issue of the Ubyssey, entitled U.B.C. • Students Face
Ouster From Homes.
Yes, the City of Vancouver
likes to bfltast that it is .the hjpme
of the University of BJC., but
what has it done for the students with regard to accommodations.
If the socalled Planning Office would tajje. time out and
figure out exactly how much
tfie average student has to
spend on room and board or
suites they wouM realize how
unjust their present plan is.
TFke sooner feere is a. price-war
®n the cost of room and board,
par^auJarty «Bi;8B*tea^/fte bet*
ter <«ft^^atodBB*&aad!-me peor
pie of Vancouver will be^ The
university student is not the
only person who is suffering
from the lack of low-priced accommodations. The married
man who claars' ahpjit $200 a
month has to keep his wife
working in order to survive or
they will end up on the street,
because they do not nave the
.money to pay their rent with.
Consider then the POOR STUDENT! He has to earn his
year's supply of money during
the summer and sometimes he
is unable to do so because he
cannot find work.
So you*see, each and every
one of us on the campus must
fight the plan of action the Van^
oouver Planning Office is go-
. hrg ,to carry out or else where
will the student live?
^llen Handley,
Dept. of; Cfaamiiitry.
The Editor,
George Harder's critisicm of
my Nov. 26 letter on the Chan
case is well taken. I did very
unjustly disregard the fine record of service of most officials
in the Immigration branch in
taking a swing at some faults
of the department. In fact, I
should have thought what a
fine corps they must have, that
more cases such as Chan's and
worse, do not arise out of those
faults I would appreciate if you
would print this as an apology
to those concerned, and my
thanks are to Mr. Harder for
correcting me.
Two things I would like to
make clear, however, I am in
no-wise apologising for, which
I regard as grievous faults of
the department, and its fellow,
the Customs Branch. First and
worst is that they both have
too much unchecked power.
Accent unchecked. They need
great powers, to do an effective job at the perimeter of
Canadian law. But the great
powers they need should be
equally restrained if they are
to avoid the injustices inherent
in all human administration.
While this is not to say there
is lacking good and effectual
supervisifia within the departments it has grave limitations
_ in some, cases, where for one
reason or another departmental face-saving or trouble-
saving can outweigh justice;
an initial injustice Can be
compounded instead of corrected, the higher up an aggrieved
party goes to try to get fair
treatment. The writer believes
tltis is what happened to Wei-
don Chan, whose later violations of immigration regulations are much more excusable
when one reviews the injustice
of his earlier frustrations in
seeking to enter Canada, for
which entry he had an excellent case.
I cannot be satisfied that
Chan has received justice until
and unless his case is reviewed
by a properly constituted court
of law, whose objective judgement would be uninfluenced
by departmental pride or prejudice.
The Conservatives, or at
least their very effective campaigner Mr. Taylor, promised
to make Immigration matters
subject: to review by the courts,
and that would answer the
need revealed in this case. Perhaps a special court would be
required, andiperhaps even the
Minister's permission would be
needed to appeal to it, But un-
lless it be entirely separate
from the administration of the
department, Mr. Taylor's and
a great many other people's
belief that immigration should
conform to the standard of
British justice established at
Runnymede, will not be met.
My use of the word "border
police" was not used to derogate but to define, the function of these civil servants.
Being necessarily a police
force they are just as incapable
of being fruly objective judges
in their sphere as the R.C.M.P.
are in criminal matters. I reiterate that it is a tribute to
Jhe character of these men that *j
more injustices do not occur
under the onerpus responsibility of men being police,
prosecutors, witnesses, judges,
jury, executioner and appeal
court all in one uniform.
I.was, remiiss-. in, not confining my aim ,to this fault and
4he one ,M«. iJander; cajJs an
"odious duty," the enforcement
of laws which as he says "are
in the nature of racial discrimination, whether they read
that way or not." Injustices
do occur, however.. My original letter was not founded on
malice or ignorance. In the
Chan case I thought I could see
repeated a pattern of injustice
which I had seen result in
grievious persecution without
redress by similar powers
abused by parties within the
Customs branch hostile towards a party of my acquaintance. I am sorry the indignation I felt resulted" in intemperate language quite unjust
and rightly termed "unchristian" by Mr. Harder towards
men far worthier of commendation than blame, in the Immigration service.
Mrs. Fairclough and those
serving under her, however,
would make their job far
easier, more pleasing to themselves and the public, and more
just towards those they govern
if they would make it possible
for men like Chan to test the
merit of their grievence in an
objective court of law, and if
they'd hear the conscience of
our people that men of all
colors and nations should be
treated with equal justice at
our borders.
With sincere apologies towards the Immigration men I
unthinkingly maligned.
Grant B. Livingstone
The Editor,
In the latest two issues of
The Ubyssey (January 7, and
12, 1960) a writer signed: "A
Government Sympathizer,"
makes some rather rash statements, and draws the most
amazing, conclusions.
I can agree with "Sympathi
zer" that the Immigration
Board knows much better than
we do why Mr. Chan is not being admitted to Canada. It
is entirely too simple for the
public, and apparently the
press as well, to realize that
under the laws of Canada Mr.
Chan is not admissible under
any conditions. Some technical
violation he is alleged to have
made, would not endear Mr.
Chan to the Immigration Department; but quite apart from
this he had, under the laws, to
be ordered deported. Unsavory
• although this may have been,
the officials charged with this
duty ordered the deportation.
Mr. Chan has not been permitted to ignore our legal and
governmental   institutions.
Mr. Chan may well have
been untruthful, and have entered Canada tinder false pretenses. J&r joining a Gaadian
reserve militia unit he was
certain, consciously or otherwise, to gain sentimental contacts and perhaps even public
approval. But as a British subject he was doing nothing
really unusual, or showing any
special willinginess "to help
defend Canada." Any British
subject may do the same.
However, to call Mr. Chan a
"second rate visitor," an "infiltrator," and "treacherous" in
obtaining a visitor's permit to
Canada—this is pretty wild
talk, a'nd unjust, to say the
least.
We cannot be called a nation
of weaklings for the reasons
argued by "Sympathizer," and
we will not gain the "respect
of the world" by dealing
hardhly with Mr. Chan. Our
officials must carry out the law,
with the least harshness in all
situations. But in dealing with
our fellow man, legally, and
perhaps arbitrarily, we can
never be too kind.
Our weakness is not in carrying out the law, for it is not
the administration — but the
laws that are wrong. Only
Parliament can change the law,
and it should be changed. People like Mr. Chan should have
an opportunity to be selected
as immigrants, and future citizens of Canada. But our laws
do not permit such opportunity;
and our weakness lies in the
hypocrisy of some of our legislation—and therefore the Canadian people. We discriminate
against people of Asiatic origin — not nationality — i.e.
Chinese, Japanese, East Indian,
but we will not openly admit
to this racial discrimination.
Do you know that the Canadian
Immigration Act, and Regular
tions, arbitrarily discriminates
against certain groups of Canadian citizens in respect of
the rights and privileges accorded to all citizens (supposedly with equality) under the
Citizenship Act of 1947? Further, do you know that British
subject status, and United
States citizenship, is not recogr
nized ip Canada for certain
people because of origin? Yes,
we have the most refined type
of racial discrimination anywhere.
I agree with "Sympathizer''
that we should cease to be a
nation of weaklings, and softhearted sentimentalists. Here
we have two choices: we can
enact arbitrary and exactly defined laws»for each nationality,
or racial group, and then have
the courage to tell these various peoples who can come into
Canada and who cannot. Our
nert, and only other choice, is
to enact Immigration laws to
make selection, and admission,
just and equitable for all
groups of peoples—so that Canadians and future Canadians
may be accorded true Christian
and democratic treatment regardless of language, religion,
or race. We should have the
fortitude to live and act according to our expressed beliefs in th$ democratic ideal;
if this is true we will have to
see to it that Parliament institutes equitable and universally applied Immigration legislation.
Of course we can conveniently forget about other fellow
beings — and let humanity go
by default — and so, eventually
cease to live, spiritually and
otherwise. The choice is ours.
GEORGE HARDER.

Socialists Supported

TORONTO and WOLFVILLE—(CUP)—Last week saw
the Socialist parties of two Eastern universities come to victory
in campus elections.

On Campus
Last Week
Irwin Steinberg, organizing
chairman of the Canadian Students' UN Association, visited
NBC last week.
The association, operating on
a grant from the UN Association, is working to affiliate and
cO-ordinate the efforts of university UN clubs across*Canada.
Through a nationally-integrated program, Steinberg felt,
the individual clubs could inform students of UN affairs more
effectively.
"It is surprising how little
students know of the working
of the! UN;" he said.
He said a' national conference
j ig planned in Montreal on Feb.
: 7y one  day  after  the  Montreal
UN Model Assembly.
It is also hoped that a Canadian representative will attend
the International Student Movement Conference, held annually
in Geneva.
Steinberg, a student at McGill,
is taking honors in Economics
and Mathematics.
] He has taken two weeks off
from his studies to visit all Canadian universities.
He arrived at UBC Thursday,
and left Friday night for Montreal and the Maritimes.
When asked his opinion Of
B C- weather, Steinberg commented "pretty miserable."
versity was broken as the Democratic Socialist party achieved its
first victory.
The Socialists took over 48
per cent of the votes thus netting 19 out of a possible 40 seats.
The platform which brought
the CCF party to victory at U.
of T. includes recognition of Red
China, increased federal grants
to universities, and nationalization of utilities.
The success of Acadia's Democratic Socialist party was generally attributed to the desire
of students for something new,
and to the intensive personal
campaign put on by Hughes Gibson, leader of the party.

Rocket Enthusiasts Create
Their Own Cape Canaveral
An illegal organization of UBG rocket enthusiasts made a
Cape Canavveral out of Spanish Banks Sunday afternoon.
At the height of this flight,
the nose cone separated, pressure
equalized, and the rocket body
windmilled   into  Burrard Inlet.
The 10-foot rocket was immediately moved onto the granite
launching pad, and after a
slight delay to allow the CBC"
cameraman to ready his equipment, the count-down began.
This second shot was the most
ambitious yet attempted by the
group, and they had sound and
picture equipment on hand
ready to record it.
The   rocket   "cooked"   for   a
Two single stage rockets—
One ten feet,, the other six feet
in height—were launched within' five minutes of each other
before 500 spectators, and a television audience represented by
CBUT cameramen.
The film will be shown at
1:30 this afternoon on Channel 12.
The smaller rocket, zink dust
and sulphur fueled, was fired
first. It went up 600 feet, shedding its tail fins (as planned?)
along the way.
second after the firing button
was pushed at the end of the
count-down, then leaped into the
air.
The nose cone failed again
but the rocket was on course and
behaved well, and again the
.shell fell into the water.
Both rockets were recovered
hurriedly by a fast departing
group who wanted to get away
from the beach before police investigators arrived.
Laws characterized as "archaic and inflexible" make this
type of testing illegal, and for
this reason, organization members prefer to remain unknown.

WUSC Seminar To
Combat Ignorance
By ROD DOBELL
WUSC Vice-Chairman
Canadian students are often accused of being dangerously
parochial, of having no real appreciation of other cultures, no
real understanding of other nations and no particular interest
in reducing this ignorance.
Maybe they are
.incidents of anti-Semitism in
recent weeks have been interpreted as indication of a rising
new trend to Fascist nationalism.
Maybe it is.
Incidents in the Middle East
have recently been interpreted
in 14' different ways by 13 different commentators.
And -in the 'midst of all this,
the World University Service of
Canada! is offering to r suitable
Qualified students the opportunity to participate in a seven-week
(Seminar this summer in Israel.
Organizers of the Seminar
have several prihciples in mind
in* carrying out this intention.
'They think that you, the Seminar delegate, have to live with
the people to learn properly. And
yeu do. You live in residence at
thi6. university, with a corresponding selected group of students of that country.   You live
vants. .
They think that you can't work
all the time. And you don't. Opportunity is available to observe
and participate in local cultural
events, community activities,
general browsing. These things
are not considered distractions;
they are an integral part of its
unique educational experience.
COST SUBSIDIZED
The cost to the student is
$250, which covers travelcosts,
board and lodging for the duration of the Seminar. The rest of
the $1000 needed per delegate is
contributed, by the administration of this university, and the
Seminar itself is subsidized by
WUSC through a national fund-
raising campaign.
Deadline for application is
January 20.

in homes  offered for your use | dian citizen by birth or natural-
as you travel around.   And this
summer   includes   a   two-week
work camp when it is hard to
predict where you will live.
"INSIDE STORY"
They think that you should
get the :"inside story," as reliably as .possible. So it is that
you will find yourself tossing
questions at the Prime Minister
or members of the National Cabinet.
Throughout the Seminar the
discussions have the participation of the leading artists, writers, businessmen  and civil ser-
ization, is attending UBC and
will be returning to UBC in 1960-
61.
In the less concrete but perhaps more important sense, it
means a student who is reasonably articulate, mature and has
a reasonable academic standing
and a big interest in the topic of
the Seminar—"Israel: Drama of
Return and Reconstruction."
Three such students will be
selected from UBC. Applicants
will be interviewed Saturday,
January 23. The Seminar will
commence in late June.

and mentor of The Ubyssey.)'
"This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but with Barf"
(Excerpt from iThe Barf Men')
I have drawn this piece of
poetry to your attention to
point up the danger of Barf.
My good friend and colleague
Dr. Boek Chisler is even now on
a lecture tour alerting the world
to the danger.
Experts in many fields are
concerned with the exploding-
Barf problem.
"If mankind refuses to stop
barfing, in'the very near future
the world's food supply will
have to be eaten," Dr. Chisler
warned.
"No longer will governments
be able to burn and destroy food
to keep prices up," he added.
However some ecclesiastical
authorities favour unlimited
Barfing.
"Every man should Barf as
he sees fit, not to mention the
women (Barf!)," said one
authority.
Dr. Chisler, when not busy
charging that Santa Claus was
communist propaganda, said
students should be treated like
adults and be told about Barf.
"Un-limited Barfing is dangerous without the proper safeguards," Chisler cautioned. "If
unrestrained Barfing is to be
allowed tfren I would advise that
Barf-bags be used."
So remember Barfer-s, use
Barf-bags, the thinking man's
filter, not to mention the women
(Barf!).
After rereading earlier Barf
articles, and re-consulting my. extensive files on the subject, I
realized that there is a side to
the Barf concept that I had forgotten anti-thesis to Barf, namely
Farb. Farb is an emulsifier, The
effects of Farb can be seen anywhere on this campus. Those

are thought of as a worried lot

Then again their is extreme
danger in over-Farbing. We need
go no further on this particular
side of the problem than to
warn those who over-farb: you
will gradually waste away and
the food outlets on this campus
will go broke.
' My advise to all is to take

UBC Takes First WCIAU Games
Winslade Weekend's
Top Point-Getter
By MIKE HUNTER
Ubyssey Sports Reporter
UBC Thunderbirds successfully opened their first Western
Intercollegiate basketball season, by twice whipping the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
The taller and more experienced Birds dropped the Huskies
84-60 and 72-38 in two weekend games in Saskatoon.
Coach Jack Pomfret didn't seem too impressed or worried by
the Saskatooners. But he warned of tough times ahead. Before
the Saturday game (a night game) the Birds viewed their next
weekend's opponents, the Manitoba Bisons, on television. The
whole team watched the game and Pomfret said "the boys were
very impressed with the Bisons, and especially with their long,
outside jump-shooting. Every member of the team was deadly . . ."
Friday night's encounter was a better game than Saturday's,
although from«a defensive standpoint, the Birds' performance on
Saturday was outstanding. Friday, the smaller Huskies grabbed
more rebounds than the Birds, but UBC's shooting was too much
for them. Ken Winslade led the Birds with 18 points, while Barry
Drummond and Wayne Osborne got 14 each. Saskatchewan's Bill
Janzen had 16 points. Everyone on the Birds team got into the
scoring, indicating that Pomfret's boys were clicking.
SATURDAY'S GAME
Saturday's game showed that the Birds can be powerful on
defence as well as offense. Before the contest, Coach Pomfret suggested that they set a goal of 50 points and try and hold the Huskies
below it. The team felt particularly ambitious, and they lowered
the target to 40 points; They succeeded in holding the Huskies to
38 points, which is pretty good defense- Pomfret said everyone
had a good game on defense, and he especially praised guard Jack
Lusk. Lusk is perhaps the most underrated of the Birds. He has
been Pomfret's main sub, especially before the return of Dave
Dumaresq. "He's fcxeen picking up a lot of unnecessary fouls, but
Saturday be didtft," said Pomfret.
The coach was also very1 pleased with Dumaresq's performance. Dave got 12 points, and ball-handled well. He was invaluable last year as a handyman, scoring 179 points in 21 games for
a 6.6 points-per-game average. He didn't come out at iihe first of
the year,.but joined the club only within the last month.
. Saturday, the Birds top scorers were Norris Martini Ken Winslade, and Dumaresq, each with 12 points.
* * *
Coach Pomfret said that in the Manitoba-Alberta game which
the Birds watched Saturday in Saskatoon, the Albertans didn't
look as strong as last year, when they pushed the Birds to the
limit before succumbing two games to one. But he was impressed
with Manitoba. (Manitoba won both weekend games against Alberta,) "They say they're the strongest team in Manitoba," said
Pomfret, "and I think they'll give us a really rough time."
BISONS NEXT
The-Birds play the Bisons this Friday and Saturday. "We'll
really have to-be sharp to stop that outside shooting," continued
Pomfret, "and we'll just have to get up with them."
Another interesting fact about the University of Manitoba is
that they have tremendous television coverage of their basketball.
That Alberta game was even telecast in Saskatoon. And the Birds
will be on TV when they play in Winnipeg on February 13.
* *        '    *
The- Birds also have two important Inter-city League games
remaining, against last-place Eilers, and first-place Dietrich-Collins.
They must win at least one of these games if they want a chance
at the B.C. playoffs. The Birds now are in fourth place, with a
4-6 won-lost record. If the Birds should get into the playoffs, they
will run into a heavy schedule. Because this is an Olympic year,
extensive.playoffs must be held fairly early in the year. If the
ideal situation arises, they would be playing basketball games on
fourteen of February's 29 days, and most would be of the important
variety. But COach Pomfret says optimistically that the Birds
"will take them one at a time."
* * *
But this week, the Birds will be taking them two at a time.
In- what may be the biggest games in the WCIAU season, they
meet the U. of Manitoba Bisons Friday and Saturday at the War
Memorial Gym. The Birds' games start at 8:30, and at 7:00 Friday,
a preliminary game will feature UBC Jayvees and the third-place
Inter-city league Cloverleafs. For a really fine display of basketball, come out and see these weekend games. Student admission
is only 50 cents, or an A-card.

EDITORIAL
Why should UBC Thunderbirds have to play in a local
Senior A League to get into the Olympic trials when eastern
universities have the right of challenge?
Could it be that the local basketball moguls have gotten
together and decided that such a measure might save the life
of the dying Senior A League?
Undoubtedly there are several interesting facts that point to
such a conclusion.
TO recap, UBC was informed on the formation of the local
league that they would have to play in that league to have a chance
at representing B.C. in the Olympic trials.
UBC then received a directive from the Canadian Amateur
Basketball Association assuring them that the "big universities"
and the right to challenge the winner of the local league for the
rigt to represent the province.
Soon after, however, due to what appears to have been some
quick politicking on the part of local basketball officials, UBC
received a letter from the CAB A informing them that the directive
applied only to Ontario and Quebec.
We wonder whether UBC is being discriminated against simply to please B.C. basketball officials?
The Thunderbirds ha«e a full 12-game inter-collegiate schedule plus 10 exhibitions without playing in the Senior A League.
If eastern universities have the right of challenge, surely UBC
should also have this right, regardless of the local basketball
situation.
This situation revolves around lack of fan support.
With UBC basketballers in the league, Senior A contests attract a large number of students who would not otherwise attend.
UBC's publicity facilities are also useful to the league.
Further, the Inter-city League officials obtain reduced rental
for the use of Memorial Gym because of the Thunderbirds participation in the league.
Birds, granted, -might gain much needed experience in the
local league.
But, with 34 games on their schedule they are too rushed to
make full use of the opportunity to learn.
.... It must be remembered, also* that student athletes must do
a certain minimum amount of studying to remain eligible.
Surely, the downtown basketball officials are not out to
damage UBC.basketball. '
perhaps, then, they should take into account the position of
the university as well as their own, in such a case.
Certainly, such deception and questionable politicking as
seems to have occurred here does little but pollute the air of the
local basketball scene.
It. seems* too, that the influence of the local officials is fan*
Ireaching. We have seen Httle in the local papers to clarify the
clouded situation.—F. J. F.

Academic Symposium
To Discuss Problems
The Academic Symposium for the year 1960 will be held at
Parksville, Vancouver Island, during the weekend of Feb. J3-7.
The Academic Symposium is
a gathering  of representatives
from the alumni, faculty and
the student body.  Its purpose
is to enable the various members to get together and discuss
problems of academic interest.
Topics will be  considered  in
the form  of   panel discussions.
The panels will be led by prominent members of the faculty as
well   as   several    distinguished
guests.
A tentative program for the
weekend includes the following
events:
The members will leave by
bus from UBC on Friday afternoon.
"• Tne opening address will be
given by Dr. Harry Hickman,
Trincipal of Victoria College.
; A. panel discussion on "Purpose of Education" will be held
On Saturday morning. The panel members include Dean An"
drew, Prof. Stanley Read, Dr.
Mcdowell and Dr. Ian McTag-
gart-Cowan.
Two group discussions will
take place Saturday afternoon to
consider the topics "The Expert
vs. The • Well-Rounded Individual" and "The Abolition of the
Language Requirement."
"Role of Extra-curricular Activities in the Total Education
of the Student" will be the topic,
for a panel on Sunday morning.
Pean Soward, Dave Edgar, Mr.
Eliot and Graham Leslie, exchange Rhodes Scholar, will lead
the discussion.
A group discussion on the topic "Revamping the Curriculum"
will conclude the formal discussion groups for the weekend;"**
The Academic Symposium is
planned so that faculty members
Alumni and students exchange
views on many aspects of academic life. The interest and
value of the Symposium Weekend stems from the association
of the members, rather than its
results, from the associations
formed, the ideas expressed and
the impressions gained or made.
Since only a limited number of
students can be chosen to take
part in the Symposium, a selection will be made.
The basis of selection will be
a scholastic record together with
general interest and activity in
student and academic affairs.
The deadline for applications
is Friday, January 22.
Application forms are available in the A.M.S. Office.
The cost of the weekend to
the student will be only $6.00
each; the other expenses totalling about $12 per student, will
be met by its sponsors, the Alma Mater Society, The Faculty
Association, The University Administration and the Alumni Association.
Participants will leave Vancouver at approximately 4:00
p.m. on Friday, February 5th,
and return by 7:00 p.m. on; Sunday, February 7th.

LITTERING
(Continued from Page 1)
part time student help.
The committee noted that the
main source of litter were paper
lunches, food containers, candy
bar and cigarette packages and
all types of waste paper. ;
The report submitted by the
committee strongly emphansizeid
that if such a cleanup program
if initiated would demand the
full support of faculty, administration and the students,  '       : •'
The Public Relations Commit*
tee' strongly felt the need for
such' a programme because of
the importance a clean tidy campus is to favorable publicity
for UBC. Many official and unofficial guests visit this campus
and the impression they receive
is affected by the tidyness ©£
