Extra Cost
lor A.M.S. Fee
Frosh will be nicked for $24
more than their University tui-
• tion when they pay their fees
this week.
It is only fair that they should
know what this $24 is for.
Briefly, it supports the activities of the Alma Mater Society.
You automatically become a
member of the AMS on paying
the compulsory fee.
The AMS provides funds for
most of the stupsit activities on
campus, including athletics, club
dances and this paper. It also
contributes to national and international student organizations.
Trae money is administered by
an elected Student Council,
which legislates on all matters
pertaining strictly to students.
More information on student
government and its operation
may be found in the student
handhdefc, Tuuin Est.
He did agree with Read's1
criticism of Canada's attitude |
towards athletics. i
"We seem to place no value
at all on developing our
athletes," Read charged. "Unless
this country wakes up, we'll be
completely out."
"I have said on numerous
occasions that the attitude of
Canadians towards athletics is
at best one of complacency and,
at worst, one of complete
apathy," Prof. Osborne said.
Prof. Osborne outlined several
ways to improve the situation.
He said the federal government should realize the import-
anc of developing our athletes.
He recommended that more
support, both moral and financial, be given to the B.C.
Amateur Sports Council and
that major universities be fortified with more experts and better facilities.
"There has to be a greater
amount of interest in, and respect for the trained coach," he

Tuum Est
You are a freshman. You enter university with a clean
slate. How you leave is up to you. The stakes you play for at
UBC are the highest of your life. Choose carefully.
To make a successful adjustment to life at UBC, the freshmen
must learn many things. But, before he can do this, he must
grasp the essential difference between high school and university.
This difference is not easy to- define. It is an attitude, a
feeling, an atmosphere.
To make a stab at putting this basic difference on paper, one
can compare learning to eating. High school, it may be said, is
like eating in a home where your meal is served already on the
Dlate. What you will eat and, to an extent, how much of it you
will eat has been decided for you. All you have to do is eat. '
University can then to be likened to a buffet dinner, where
the partaker must choose what he will have, and decide how much
of it he will have, himself. Only certain nebulous minimum and
maximum standards are set.
To carry this culinary analogy a little further, it may be
said that in high school the food is delivered to you, and you
are forced to eat at least some of it. At University, on the other
hand; the food is placed on a shelf by those who have prepared
it, and you can take it or leave it, as you please.
You, as a Freshman, must make your own choice. Will you
take this opportunity to learn—to learn not only facts as you
did in high school, but also to learn how to think, to be taught
the essence of the critical faculty? Or will you blow it, as so
many have done before you?
The key difference between high school and university is
this: students are here because they want to be—not because
some law says they have to be. Most of us are here because we
have an unquenchable thirst for learning.
The love of learning is a strong common bond that forges a
mass of students into that mystical being—the university  community. It is a spirit and an atmosphere—that should prevail more
than it does. It is important to us—don't dececrate it.
Here people respect those that achieve high marks. They
don't ridicule them as jealous high schoolers will often do.
No one, on the other hand, ridicules those who do not score
so high. How hard they work is their own business, and, besides
marks are not the only measure of learning.
Remember, you are here because you chose to be.   You're
grown up now. Make your choice. Choose with care the food for
your own intellectual pallet. And don't be afraid to eat hearty.
Intellectual indigestion is rare.
There follows a partial menu of the intellectual fare offered
Frst, there are classes. Attend them. Your instructor knows
something that would be of use to you. His brain is there for you
to pick. Do so.
The excellent noonhour lectures are for you. They're cheap
if not free, and an education in themselves. There will be concerts, and other special events as well as lectures. Choose your
entertainment to suit your own personal needs and interests. No
one will do it for you.
Take advantage of the art galleries and museums around the
campus. You. might even develop a taste for culture.
Most important, use this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
mingle freely with students of practically every race, creed and
culture. Get their point of view and give them yours. Learn to
be tolerant here, while you're still young enough to; learn.
At any rate, it's the same old story: tuum est, it's up to you.

Medical Plans Help
Save Student Purse
A new plan to provide prepaid medical and surgical care
for all UBC students has been announced by the president,
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie.
The president said the University had completed arrangements with B.C. Medical Services Incorporated to provide
care over and above what is
now offered by UBC's health
Students will be covered for
all surgical and medical care
while in hospital. Other care
such as visits to a doctor's
office or home visitis by a doctor
will be provided for the treatment of accidents only.
Full medical care will still
be available to students through
the UBC "health service with
the added benefit of surgical
care in another hospital if
The cost of the plan will be
$10 per year per student, the
president said.
Eligible are all winter session
students at UBC and students
registered at affiliated theological colleges. No medical questionnaire or examination will be
Students who wish to be covered by the MSI plan will be
required to sign up and pay the
$10 fee during the final phase
of registration in the Armoury.
v Officials from MSI will be
on hand to issue identification
cards. Students who are not
able to sign up during registration can apply for coverage
through the accounting office.
Dr. Kenneth Young, director
of UBC's health service, said
the new plan will give students
wider health coverage than is
provided at any other university for the price.
"Our own health service," he
said, "is the biggest and most
comprehensive in the Commonwealth. The new plan is designed to extend care to cover such
expensive things as surgery."
Continuation   of   Plan
Dr. Young added- that the
plan can be continued only if a
large number of students take
advantage of the new arrangements. "I would urge every
student to sign up unless .they
are already protected by their
parents' health coverage," he
AMS President Dave Edgar
says that the plan was studied
by Student Council and that
they endorse it. "We recommend that each student study
this program thoroughly,"
Edgar said.
The plan also provides for
emergency medical and surgical
care anywhere in the world.

Thirty freshettes will be
chosen by upper-classmen during
registration to run in the Frosh
Queen contest. All contestants
will be introduced at various
functions during registration
week. On Monday, Sept. 19,
twenty will be eliminated to
leave 10 finalists for the title.
Voting for the finalists will
take place at the Big-Little Sister Banquet and the Frosh
Smoker. This is the only chance
to vote and only first-year
students have the privilege.
The Frosh Queen and two
princesses will be announced at

Lockers Open
In Two Areas
Student lockers are available
in both the Buchanan and Physics buildings.
In the Buchanan building a
student simply puts a lock on a
locker, notes the number, and
registers the locker number at
the ASUS office on the ground
floor of the Buchanan building.
The ASUS levies a small fee for
this service.
Lockers in the Physics building can be rented for the winter
session for 50c by applying at
the Physics building office on

Less Fear of Engineers
As Frosh Hazing Ended
For the first time in the
history of the university organized hazing will not be an event
of frosh  week.
It was recommended in the
frosh Orientation report from
last year that this practice be
abolished  for several reason.
The participation is almost
negligible, the injury risk is
high, the publicity for the university is adverse and hazing
as it now exists is outdated.
The Frosh, however, will be
given the traditional beanies and
the pass valued at about $5.
The pass gives the bearer
cheaper rates to the dances, and
ohter assorted benefits.
It "was also recommended in
the report that "the sale of frosh
beanies "and report cards be discontinued. In their place, University hats, scarves, etc., be
sold, once again, to create en*

To Frosh — A Challenge
Welcome Frosh.
This is the tiresome refrain that you will be hearing
continually throughout your first week at UBC. They won't
let you forget you're a Freshman.
But the time will come, in a few weeks, when you
will have to put away childish things and become a part
of the university community in your own right.
For a long time, people thought that Frosh would
aiever be able to pull their own weight. • They thought that
•■Frosh were children, fit only to follow. ■
Last year though, Peter Shepard and his Frosh Council changed all that. They showed the doubting Thomases
sthat Frosh could get organized.
Now it's on your shoulders. You can't go passively
letting upper classmen do your thinking for you. You have
a tradition to uphold.
You can start by going to Frosh Retreat. This is a
weekend at Camp Elphinstone for 140 leading Frosh. Here
you will meet the upper classmen who lead the campus,
«nd you will learn how student government operates.
Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to return
to the campus and get organized yourselves.
Now, you're ready to-contribute something to campus
life. You can sponsor debates, dances, lectures, etc. You
.can carry on an intelligent rivalry with the big, bad engineers, .You can attend other people's programs—and listen
.and learn.
This is your collective responsibility. To get organized.
To contribute to campus life.  To govern yourselves.
But don't forget your individual responsibility — your
'responsibility to yourself. Go ahead. Work for the good
'   xrf the Frosh.   Join clubs.  Work for The Ubyssey.   v
This is great fun—and for the good of all.- But, that's
not why you're here. You're here to learn. To study requires time — time spent alone, in consultation with the
Muse, and with your texts and lecture notes.
Balance your individual and collective responsibilities
Do this, and your stay here will be the most enjoyable
and the most profitable time of your life.
The Decision Is Yours
The parking system proposed by the Faculty Committee
on Traffic and Parking aims to eliminate vehicular and
pedestrian traffic congestion and to provide a system without financial responsibility to the student.
* The distinct features of this revised system are the re-
jmoval of traffic tickets, amount of penalties levied for traffic infractions, methods of enforcement of traffic regulations and assignment of students to only one parking lot.
f During registration, each student expecting to park
fen campus will receive a permit and sticker for a particular parking lot and rmust park his car in that lot only.
- All improperly parked vehicles will be impounded and
.released only upon payment of a fine at the Traffic Office.
Three parking infractions will result in the withdrawal of
the student's parking permit.
Stopping or parking on roadway was a common infraction of parking regulations in past years. Under this year's
system, this regulation will be strictly enforced, as will
student parking in lots set aside for visitors to the campus.
.Thousands, of dollars per year are spent every year
:iby the University Administration on traffic and parking.
Ji students do not co-operate with regulations of this new
parking system, it is most conceivable that increased admin-
, istrative costs' will force authorities to impose a set fee
upon every student planning to park on campus. It is not
likely that any student would enjoy paying a ten dollar
fee just for the privilege of parking his car on campus.
Another plausible danger if this revised system fails
is that our entire parking plan may fall under the auspices
of outside authorities. Surely the interference from non-
University sources would damage the custom of University autonomy, in this respect.
The present Appeal Board on parking is set up to hear
explanations not resolved in the Traffic Office. This stu-
fdent-faculty association would be replaced by an unsympathetic board of outside officials, extinguishing the present mutual understanding.
'*       The Faculty Committee on Traffic and Parking welcomes criticisms  and suggestions   from  you.  If students
j>uck the system, the consequences for future years are
s anyone* graess. And, like everything else on this campus,
tuum est—it's up to you.
There are three distinct-
connotations of the word
"charity". They stem from
different languages and vary
in emphasis and in tone. In
the Latin, the word karitas
means benevolence, goodwill
and help that is extended.to
the poor and the needy. The
English word "charity", derived from the Latin, suggests
the image of one in a fortunate position in life conferring
largesse upon another who is
less   fortunate.
Philanthropy, coming from
the Greek "philanthropia"
(love of mankind), is the spirit
of goodwill toward one's fe.l-
lowmen as exemplified in
efforts to promote the social
welfare by extending relief
to the needy and improving
the social order generally. It
is impersonal. Like charity,
it is offered voluntarily by
those who are touched by the
plight of others.
The Hebrew word for charity is tsedakah — righteousness. It is a term of categorical imperative. The Holiness
Code of Leviticus .prescribes:
"Thou shalt not respect the
person of the poor, nor favor
the person of the mighty; but
in righteousness shalt thou
judge thy neighbour." There
is no distinction between the
giver and the benificiary because they are born equal.

A Happy Year
The beginning of the academic year is for all of us
faculty and students alike, an
exciting and stimulating
For students who have already ■ been in residence at
the University it means renewing old friendships, planning courses, discussions with
professors and settling down
to study again after the summer.
For those who come to us
for the first time the University will at first appear
complex, bewildering and
perhaps even a little frightening, and all of you, I think,
will experience some difficulty in coming to know the
ways of the University and
even more important what is
expected of you as a student.
It will take time for you
to adjust yourselves to new
methods of teaching and
study. Having now entered
University, your success depends largely on you, your
desire and ability to work
alone, to seek out information for yourself and to manage  your  time wisely.
In this process of adjustment members of faculty are
always pleased to give advice
and guidance but you should,
from the outset, resolve that
you are here to work seriously, methodically and to
the limits of your ability.
Social life, clubs and
sports, with all their excitement and attraction, are an
essential part of a University education but your principal duty to yourself is to
learn. Many persons are vitally interested in your welfare and progress: your parents, your friends, and your
I hope that your achievements at the University will
merit the trust that has been

I send my best wishes to all
students for a happy, successful and profitable year.

Enrollment Up
Says Registrar
More than 11,000 students
will fight their way through
the annual registration crush
this week, estimates J. E. A.
Parnall,  University   Registrar
In keeping with past, tradition, this year's crowd will
again be the largest ever to hit
the campus. The increase over
last year is expected to be close
to 700 students.
Every 18 students can expect
to be instructed by one staff
member, according to statistics
furnished by Registrar's Office.
This ratio varies from faculty to
faculty, however, and the majority of students will be in
rlasses of 30 or more.
As .usual, the Arts and
Science Faculty will be the
largest, faculty on campus due
in part to the large number of
freshmen. It will also be the
most loosely organized, if history repeats itself.
Somewhere between 25 and
28 percent of the 11,000 will
fail, most of whom will be back
next year to try again.
Officials say that the easy
way to register is to be on campus early to avoid the rush.
Registrar Parnall estimates
that it will take each student
about half an hour to get his
time-table arranged in the
Buchanan Building.
Officials expect that the
crush in the Armories (where
fees are paid and more forms
filled out) will be reduced from
previous years because freshmen have been assigned specific
days to register.
After passing through the
Buchanan Building and the
Armory, students are free to go

Well, so now you're the new crop of freshmen. Fresh from
high school and already tired of being reminded about it Personally, J wish now that I had put a dime into some private
little kitty every time during my first year that some be-
wniskered old foozy had the consumate gall to question my
These old gaffers have a particularly insidious way of
smiling and nodding their heads in quiet enjovment of their
own muddled thoughts and, deducting a liberal 90 per cent for
their experience, imagining what confusion must be rampant
in your own poll.
Whereas, as I recall, there is nothing or perhaps no one
with resources of cocky self assurance and glowing inner satisfaction as the college freshman.
And yet the young are forced to- stand and smile deprecat-
lngly as the codger grinds slowly to the end of his private
bit of cabbage, and noticing the sudden silence, tries to mollify
his subject by invoking the upperclassman's creed of mutual
self-deception: 'These, my boy, are the happiest days of your
life'. As if the little scene in which he has just played the lead
were not enough to make him choke on his lie.
Even apart from these little encounters with friends of
one's father or mother, or the village vicar in which you are
continually being assured by miserable-looking old recluses
that you are just on the edge of having 'One hell of a good
time', I can't think of many reasons why the freshman's life
is such a happy one.
• Anyone thinking to the contrary has obviously been deceived by Ubyssey photography into thinking that the mud
and water which perpetually surround the Engineer's 'Slosh the
l?rosh tub is neither cold nor wet. (Ubyssey photographers
are famous for shots that don't look a damn bit like what they
were supposed to, let alone what the subject itself looks like.
These fools who will tell you otherwise have never really considered how basely degrading it really is to spend the first
forty minutes of every lecture hour trooping aimlessly through
every mud puddle on the damn Point trying to find the rest
of the class.

Certainly no one coul& challenge the fact that bein^a

automatically labelled as a 'prospect' by everybody on the campus who can think of anything at all to sell you. There are

I'll bet that every freshman reading this paper has at least

North Afherican Campus.
Those three new books cost him just about as much as his
elder (sadder and wiser) colleagues spent for their whole kit

No, being a freshman is a tough go.

job it used to be. Believe it or not, there are men on this campus
Who can remember the time when not knowing where the 'CV
Huts were was enough to sink any Frosh up °to his jodhpurs
in ice water.
Nowadays, this admission would probably only warrant
you a' warm handshake from the poor bedevilled assistant prof
who has to get the hell over there every morning from Robson
House to give his 8:30 in dead languages.
In fact with the Administration fearlessly purusing its
policy of standing the campus on its ear by 1962, not knowing
where the 'O' Huts originally were be an invaluable sea anchor
with which to weather the chaos. And you are sadly mistaken
if you, think that it makes things any easier to know that the
Arts Faculty used to be located in the Arts Building.
• . Personally, I gave up the fight when they moved the CNIB
coffee shop last year. It's been instant Maxwell House and the
dregs from the Law Faculty boiler ever since for me, and doubtless for many other even more timid souls.
But the freshmen nowadays are even given moral support
by having winning teams. The rowers have just plastered the
good name of this university all over the globe, our swimmers
are the terror of their conference and the basketball squad has
never looked back ever since someone explained the unlimited
substitution rule to Jack Pomfret.
When we were freshmen it used to be compulsory for us
^o come to Johnny Owen stadium every Saturday to watch the
plucky 'Birds go down to ,another moral victory before the
beefy Republicans from the south.
But whether it is now or then, being a Frosh is still no easy
go. I think that the only advice I care to give is this: keep your
guard high and active.
. By that I mean that every time you think someone is
pulling the wool over your eyes, just make a couple of perfunctory passes at the old forelock to see if you don't indeed

The more   barbaric members
of all three of these groups perform weird sacrificial rites periodically throughout the year.
These are known as "the holy
and sacred rites of. the lily
pond", and consist largely of
dunking blue-blazer boys (sometimes known as student councillors) and other innocent bystanders into a body of sacrecl
water located front of the great
fortress of the university (also
called the Library).
This immersion in holy water
is rumored to cleanse those dunked of all evil thoughts and to
make them the true value of the
way-of-life of the men (?) of applied science.
During these rites, the groups
involved have often been
known to lose all semblance of
human decency and to become
so intoxicated as to commit acts
generally attributed only to
mad dogs or Englishmen.
These orders of the colored
sweaters have been known to
set up Kangaroo courts and sentence freshmen to inhuman tortures (such as being handcuffed
to a member of the opposite
sex); they have attacked innocent representatives of the unbiased student press without
provocation, and they have molested and harmed the offices of
said representatives.

Football Season
Sept 17
Football coach Frank Gnup
has only 19. lettermen returning to this year's Thunderbird
Football team.
First test for the squad will
be in Bellingham, September 17
at 8:00 p.m. When the Birds
meet last year's Evergreen Conference champions, Western
Washington College Vikings.
Last  year   the  'Birds   placed
first in the Western Canadian
Intercollegiate Championships.
Games this year feature the Canadian Universities in Alberta,
Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Exhibition .games are against
Evergreen College teams.
Tickets for the first game in
Bellingham can be obtained at
the Memorial Gym office.
You Frosh, while standing there in that lineup, or wandering cautiously about the campus avoiding Engineers, are unsuspectingly being introduced to athletics at UBC. Lineups and
Engineers, although not strictly classified as athletics, are
nevertheless tests of endurance, and a part of the annual fall
scene. They are the first traces of another year of college sport.
Athletics are a vital part of campus life, and a source of
school spirit—something in which every student should take
part during his university career. To begin with, almost one-
quarter of your AMS fee goes; to athletics. Unfortunately, this
financial contribution has been,the only support given by the
majority of students. Active support in the form of attendance
at games has been sadly lacking during the past several years.
Active campus support is about the most important factor
in college athletics—and getting out to the game is fun. as you'll
find out if you give it a try. No one who attended any of the
High School Basketball tournament games will ever forget the
excitement and tension that was generated—and, you have- to
agree, 90% of the atmosphere was developed by the spectators.
Without fans, sport loses its color, its gloss. . . .
*        *        *
Of course there are other ways in which you may become
involved in UBC athletics. You Frosh, and many sophomores,
whether you like it or not, must complete a little item in your
course called compulsory physical ed. Like everything else
here, it's confusing—and the Registrar's burlesque little publication makes the issue, as usual, as clear as mud. And when you're
faced with the problem of compulsory compulsory P.E., well . . .
But all's well that ends well— it's generally accepted that all
you have to do to pass the requirements is to show up for your
For the rest of UBC's population, athletic indulgence is
strictly voluntary. Participation may be intramurally—perhaps
better known as the "house" system, in high school—in which
clubs, faculties, societies, fraternities and sororities enter individuals and teams in a variety of noon-hour and evening sports.
Points are awarded for standing in the various sports, and the
club with the highest aggregate wins the Intramural Trophy.
The cream of the crop competes extramurally, on an official
UBC "Thunderbird" or "Thunderette" team.
Last, but not least, students may relish athletics "super-
murally"—m the hehind-the-scenes departments so vital to sports
—the managerial and publicity corps. The gym doors are wide
open to persons interested in managerial, Public Relations, and
janitor (sweeping up red tape) work. And prospective sportwriters
need go no further than the north Brock basement.
Anyway, make a point this year of getting out to some games,
whether as a spectator, or in a more specialized capacity. And
let's hope there are lots of you.

'Nickeralloy steels are the strong, tough, durable materials
that carry the load in modern transportation. On railway rolling
stock, nickel steels are used for truck frames, couplers, axles
and other heavy duty equipment and for car bodies for long life.
They're used for automotive transmission and engine parts on cass„
trucks and buses; for undercarriages and engine parts of planes;
for the propeller shafts and machinery of ocean-going ships and lake
freighters; for the structural steel in modern bridges. In fact, wherever
the load is great or where hard wear and severe abuse are factors
in modern transportation, nickel alloy steels are on the job.        ^
Nickel stainless Steels are the glamour metals of the transportation industry. It's the shimmering lustre of nickel stainless
steel you see on the sleek, modern streamlined trains and buses.
Stainless steel is as practical and efficient as it is beautiful. It's
strong and has exceptional resistance to corrosion. Never needs
painting and tends to wash clean in every rainfall. It resists the
corrosive effects of acids and alkalies in modern tank trucks. It
makes beautiful, easy-to-clean hardware and ornamental accessories
on ships, buses, trains and planes.
Nickel high temperature alloys are the sinews of modern
transportation—they withstand the searing temperatures and the
