Athletes Oppose WIAU Entry
Here  Is  What
They  Promise
Students have  long  been
convinced that a student election   should   be   concerned
with issues,'not personalities.
With that end in mind, The
Ubyssey has interviewed
all four first-slate candidates
to determine their position
on those issues which most
affect the Alma Mater Society. The results of these interviews are given below:
Do you favor continued student participation in the
building program?
RON BRAY: After the War
Memorial Gymnasium debt
is pa^id—that's $45,000—and
the pool question is se tiled,
the money should be applied
to a new Student Union
Building, which with increased enrollment, will be necessary, or at any rate, a new
wing to the Brock.
JIM CRAIG: "Yes. Self-help
is a desirable" thing to encourage and participation in
the building program develops in the student a sense
of responsibility,
the $5 per student per year
is quite sufficient, and any
more would be too much of a
a growing University. The
building program must be
maintained. Five dollars is
not too high a price to pay
for the facilities we afe receiving.
of the Home Economics
School sitting on it."
What is your position on food services ond o student-
owned bookstore?
RON BRAY: "To take over
the      bookstore,      students
would have to pay out $100,-
000 to begin with, just to buy
the stock. The University
seems to be doing the best
it can, and I feel that the
best plan would be to just
maintain the status quo.
JIM CRAIG: On the matter
of a student-owned bookstore, I can give no opinion.
1 can say this, though: the
advantages of a student-
owned bookstore would not
lie in any greater efficiency
of operation. Text - book
costs have been investigated
by NFCUS. A reduction in
price is open to us only if
publishers can be persuaded
to produce cheaper books —
perhaps more paper-bound
edition is the answer."
"Food service investigations should be continued."
when it can be shown that
it is profitable, the students
should take over the bookstore and try to save themselves as much money as possible."
"I would be willing to actively participate on any food
services committee to further
the good work done by Mr.
should form a committee to
study the food problem and
another to study the feasabil-
ity of a student-owned bookstore. The food committee
should have some members
Would you work for
changes in the AMS
general meetings in
respect to petition
and quorum regulations?
RON BRAY: "I certainly
would. I'd like to see the
number of signatures required to call a general meeting
increased from 100 to 500.
JIM CRAIG: "There should
be more signatures required,
since costs are so prohibitive.
However I would not increase it to as many as 500."
DAVE HEMPHILL: "I advocate a larger number as
one step in improving the
now-sorry lot of the General
NEVILLE TREVOR: "Because of expense of a General Meeting, I would like to
see more signatures required.
Do you favor reentry Into NFCUS at
50c par student?
RON BRAY: "I would like to
see UBC back in NFCUS
next year. If I thought the
expense would curtail other
activities, I would oppose it,
but there's no danger of that.
Next year's budget should
be in good shape, and there's
no reason why we shouldn't
JIM CRAIG: "I personally
feel that NFCUS is worth
50c per student. Whether we
can pay 50c or not will depend on the state of next
year's budget. To me, it
seems unlikely that any budget juggling will produce the
needed 50c, or for that matter, that it would be desirable. JBut an increased enrollment may provide a surplus
which wil make re-entry into
NFCUS possible. If the will
to join is there, the money
can be- found."
my personal opinion on this
statement is irrevelant, but
I will warmly endorse whatever the students decide to
told that now there is enough
money to make re-entry into
NFCUS possible, so we
might as well join. NFCUS is

Free jazz is the main bill of

staged Wednesday noon in the
Armory to highlight this week's
blood drive.

15-piece band, vocalist Eleanor

In this year's campaign University of Saskatchewan is challenging UBC in a competion
for the Corpuscle Cup which is
awarded to the Canadian university donating the highest
percentage of blood. Last year,
Saskatchewan finished in fourth
position directly behind UBC.
The objective of the prairie university is 75%.
Blood donations will add

it requires the backing of
every University— especia-
ally UBC.
What pet projects

would like to see an Arts
Undergraduate Society reformed on the campus. A lot
of people have told me it
can't be done, but I believe
if a nucleus consisting of
existing clubs was formed,
AUS would become a reality.
A new Arts Building would
help a lot, too.
Canadian   Affiliation
Draws Fire of MAA
Athletes on the campus do not favor UBC's proposed entry
into a Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union at this
At a meeting Friday the Men's
Athletic Association, comprising
representatives of every sport
on the campus, went on record
as opposing formation of the
WIAU "until the other universities (Alberta, Saskatchewan,
Manitoba) offer a more round
and extensive program and better competitive  conditions."
MAA secretary Bob Hutchison summed up the majority
feeling when he said: "Rather
than lower our calibre to win
games we should raise our calibre to win games in the Evergreen Conference.
The feeling was that the program offered by the prairie
universities was not nearly extensive enough to provide adequate competition for UBC's
minor sports such as track,
swimming, tennis, etc.
While it might be feasible to
play football and basketball in
the Union and make it pay,
MAA members agreed that other
sports would be left out in the
cold or would have to continue
in the Evergreen Conference.
Students will indicate in a referendum Wednesday whether
they are willing to accept a $6
fee increase to make the WIAU
financially possible.
Bennett  Boosts
Operating Budget
UBC continued to find recognition at Victoria Friday, when
Premier Bennett's budget disclosed a $200,000 boost in the university's operating budget.      f^™"™mmmmmm^~——™""—!——■

The budget also provided
$10,000 for a survey into the advisability of establishing a dental faculty on the campus.
It marked the second successive year the university received a $200,000 operating boost,
bringing the total fund to $2,-
The extra money will in no
way be used for the university's
building program but will be
quickly consumed in necessary
The Board of Governors is
now trying to locate a suitable
individual to carry out the dental faculty survey.

the request for extra acreage

On   Strike
A rebellious second-year architecture class staged a sit-
down strike Thursday and refused to attend  a  physics lab.
The students contended that
the labs were badly co-ordinated with the lecture material in
the complsory  Physics  260.
"We don't'find out till about
a month later just what was
coming off," said a spokesman
for the group.
He said the entire class would
continue the boycott until "constructive action" was taken.
"We feel the situation is intolerable,"  he said.
Professor Frederic Lasserre,
director of the department, said
he had not been notified of the
situation, but admitted that complaints had readied hi.s ears in
the past.
First slate AMS elections, to elect a president and USC
chairman, will be held tomorrow, with polling booths in

The  Investigators
Faculty Council's talk of expelling the two engineers
charged in last month's Student Court riot proceedings comes
as a surprise. The threatened move can only.serve to question
the actual autonomy oi' the Student Court.
The Court saw fit to sentence two convicted rioters $5,
considering that as sufficient punishment. •
Put Faculty Council appears to disagree with the penalty and seems to consider expulsion as the offenders' due.
If the Faculty does go over the heads of a student appointed
Court the question of that Court's responsibility is raised.
However, considering the Court's proceedings such a
question might very well be posed.
It would not be going to far to compare the procedure of
UBC's Student Court with that of,a Senate Investigating
It was quite evident the judges made no bones about
assuming the role of prosecutor and judge.
The Student Investigating Committee was called upon to
investigate this matter and make\a report to the Student
Court embodying charges if necessary.
However, the Investigators' report served as nothing
more than a rough guide for the judges.
The Court received this report along with one more each
from the EUS and MAD. They then proceeded to cross-examine the witnesses, draw their own conclusions, and mete out
the punishment.'
The fallacy of this procedure is that the only body
which can legitimately lay any charges is the Investigating
The Court should merely serve to prove the validity
or inytflidty of any'charges lad to facilitate the passing of
At any rate the Student Court must be feeling a little
nervous at impending Faculty interference and possibly a
little ashamed at their crocodile court methods.
A re-examination of student disciplinary procedure is
definitely in order.
Where There's Smoke..,
If anything has resulted from the world drama now being
enacted in Asia it is the urgencv of seating Red China in
the United Nations.
In all likelihood the present conflict revolving around
Formosa would have been averted if the rightful representatives had sat in that world conference hall.
Even now "recognition" is a bargaining point. China
may have "stood up," as Mao Tse-tung puts it, and will do
her best to claim her property, but she also wants the U.N.
And even if the United States persists in her dangerous
big stick approach to Asia, manifested in this case by a "no
sent for Red China" stand, the cool heads of a war-experienced
Europe may stop the imminent global conflict.
Their restraint is becoming clearer as the crises mounts.
The behind the scene pressure to recognize Red China and
seat her in the U.N. is jusl forging itself into the news.
Britain, France and according to Walter Winchell, Canada, are all involved in this long overdue move.
At this point the whole thing, as far as the West is concerned, smells very much like smoke from burning bridges.
Now   We   Are   Nine
The Faculty of Law is now a healthy nine-year-old. It
may be thought too young for reflective backward glances.
Nevertheless, a permanent staff grown from two to
eight in number, accommodation from Brock North to the
present view lot looking across Howe Sound, and the library
from two sets of Law Reports and live textbooks to thirty-
five thousand well-housed volumes, and more particularly
the graduation ol close to seven hundred students, are
worth some thought.
In the past the legally educated have tended to occupy
positions of authority and responsibility. With the increasing complexity of society and growing specialization the
need for people trained to take a broad view of human
problems and to accept responsibility is greater than ever.
This need exists not only al the Bar and on the Bench,
but  in governmenl, labour and industry.
11 is gratifying to see graduates of I hi.s school taking up
positions in these fields and il is hoped that succeeding
years will see a sloady growth in Ihe facilities at the University mi that tiiese increasing demands for men and women
trained in the law may be met.

Notes"   Publication
March- Best   Yet"
March will sec the publication of the newest and biggest
issue of Legal Notes, the all-
student edited legal periodical.
Legal Notes saw its beginnings six years ago, and only
three years after the Law Faculty itself! was established,
with a small .but well prepared offering to instruct the
legal profession and the students in the ways of the law.
With this humble beginning
went the wishes of the editors
that sometime in the not too
distant future Legal Notes
would grow to become a first
class legal journal much in thc
nature of its cousins in the
U.S., the Harvard Law Review and the Yale Law Journal.
With this in mind thc editors of Legal Notes have with
each succeeding issue expanded the scope and quality as
well as the amount of the material.
A sign of their increasing
good work is the fact that
Legal Notes is now circulated
to universities on every continent and has received thc
honor of being considered excellent enough to be included
in the Harvard Index to Legal
Periodicals and the UNESCO
Index to World Legal Periodicals.
The material which is pub*
lished in Legal Notes comprises articles and case comments by professors, lawyers,
judges and students on points
of law of current interest to
the legal profession.
The Editorial Board, which
puts out Legal Notes once or
twice a year is composed entirely of law students who are "

Suddenly he is pinned in thc glare of a flashlight. The police

Alertronic Alarm has done its job.
The heart of this device is two slender rods of pure nickel
that change their length when magnetized, causing a
diaphragm to vibrate and send out sound waves so high-
pitched they cannot be heard by human ears. But the
slightest movement by an intruder disturbs the sound
waves and sets off the alarm.

gained are among Inco's greatest assets. Inco research points

Sports Editor—KEN LAMB
A WIAU Hookup
—Pros  and  Cons
If the University of British Columbia were to become a fully
participating member of the Western Intercollegiate Athletic
Union we might be paving the way towards establishing a truly
national intercollegiate sports governing body. The Old Canadian
Rugby Union was formerly interested in the development of amateur football, but it is now concerned solely with the promotion
of the professional game and the Grey Cup. There is a great need
for a Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union which would set up
standards, conduct clinics, plan national championships, equalize
eligibility regulations, and aid the High School athletic programs.
This cannot be accomplished so long as UBC competes in the
Evergreen Conference. When our students vote on whether or
noj they wish to enter the W.I.A.U. they should consider the
broader implications of such a move, which could benefit Canadian Intercollegiate Athletics as a whole.
It is certainly desirable that we compete regularly against our
sister Canadian universities, who are not only of equal academic
standing, but also alike in their philosophy and approach to athletics. There are many, too, who believe our students would take
pride in such a Union, and would enjoy watching all-Canadian
games, played on an equal standard of competition. After re-
peted defeats in the Evergreen Conference against small American
schools, we have observed a decided decline in student interest
with regard to .our Sports program. Would they turn out to see
Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba in larger numbers?
. It is not generally known that the prairie universities are at
present active in the W.I.A.U., with the exception of football.
They now compete.regularly, and in most of the organized sports;
so UBC would be Joining an already established and well-organized
Apart from school spirit which is of considerable importance,
we must think about the financial picture. It will cost about $35,000
extra each year (which would include giving each student a free
athletic card), or about $6.00 more per student. This would ensure
a broad program of competition, even more extensive than we
have at present and would include—football, basketball, hockey,
badminton, tennis, golf, swimming, curling, assault at arms (fencing, boxing wrestling), and possibly others. The cost estimate
provides for air travel, to cut down on time-loss from lectures.
On the, other hand w% are at present enjoying moderate success in the Evergreen Intercollegiate Conference, last year winning three championships (tennis, golf and swimming), out of a
total of seven competed for. Granted these »wins were in the so-
called minor sports. Even in the major activities of football and
basketball upon which much emphasis is placed, we are doing
better, in spite of the fact that the calibre of competition is very
high. Many wonder if we will ever be able to reach the top of
the Conference, and if we do will the students support the teams to
a much greater degree than at present.
A friendly spirit of competition now exists between our university and the schools in the United States. It is comparatively inexpensive, and within our present means.
In any case if a change is contemplated, a year's notice would
be necessary before we could withdraw from the Evergreen Conference, and the best that could be done would be to have an interim set-up for one year, and perhaps play in both Conferences.
This is not at all impossible.
The main issues have been presented as we see them. It will
be up to the student body to decide whether or not it wishes to
continue with the Evergreen Conference, or relinquish it in favour
of all-Canadian competition.
Morley Kicks Thunderbirds
To McKechnie Cup Victory
Conditioned   Birds
Outrun  Ragged  Reps
TWO PARAPLEGIC basketball stars demonstrate some of
the basket-on-wheels wizardry they will be displaying Wednesday night in the 7:30 opener of a double header at the
Memorial Gym. Other half, at 9, will be the Philly Coloured
Giants, rated by some as good as the Globetrotters. Tickets
on sale at gym and game. Prices $1.50, $1 and 50 cents
(for students).
Pomfret's Men Split
With Western Five
UBC 62 - Western 49
Western 65 • Birds 55
The Birds managed to tie their all-time conference record
of two wins as they split a doubleheader with Western Washington over the weekend.
Thunderbirds 12 - Reps 8
There is an old saying by a Kitimat Indian which, when
translated, reads, 'A slow start means a fast finish." UBC's
rugger Thunderbirds personified this outlook last Saturday
when they dumped an ever-dangerous Vancouver Rep XV 12-8
to win the McKechnie Cup.    «*■--— :	
The first quarter of the game
found Birds hemmed to their
own half of the field, and struggling inadequately to survive the
demanding Reps. They did. After
two gilt-edged penalty chances
failed, Dave "Toe" Morley lofted
a 35 yard placement to give Varsity a 3-0 lead. The sun was
figuratively beginning to shine.
This lead stimulated Vancouver into frenzied retaliation, and
John Morrison scored an unconverted try to make the count
3-3 at the half. Birds were looking stronger, however, as the
game  progressed.
During the first minute of the
second half, a bruising Jim Mc-
Nicol was thrust over the Vancouver goal line to give Varsity
a 6-3 margin. Tilings looked
bright for Varsity: it was a fine
The Reps' faster and better
coordinated three-qunrter line began to churn. Doug Smart scored
a merited try which John Morrison converted. Varsity trailed
8-6 and things were very sad. It
was a dull and gloomy day.
Morley put the Cup on ice
with a few minutes left when
he booted a 45 yard field goal.

Fitba  Xl's  Win,
Tie Over Weekend
Birds 2 - Dominions 0
Chiefs 4 - VGH 4
UBC's soccer teams had one of their most successful weekends this time around. Birds maintained their cellar removed
position by beating last place Dominion Hotel 2-0, while the
vChiefs were tying VGH 4-4.
Varsity's combination of Glasgow and Ashdown proved the
big guns again with each of them
picking up a goal. Despite the
muddy going, the game was fast
and Varsity used its better condition  to outgun  the   hotelmen.
Braves  Win
Three  Tiffs
On   Island
Playing together as a team for
one of the few times this year,
the Braves basketball club warmed up for tonight's opening game
of the semifinal series with
YMCA by winning all three
games of a weekend slate on the
Kenyon's hard working crew
beat Victoria Normal fSH-50 Friday night. Royal Roads fil-44
Saturday afternoon, and Victoria
College f)3-4H Saturday  night.
It was the first loss for the
Normal school. Gordy Forward
and Jim Redford, with 14 and 12
points led tiie Braves to a f>4
percent, shooting mark against
the cadets.
Gary Hill, with 2'.. and Dave
Horton with 10 led the attack
against   Vic   College.
Game is at King I'.d tonight
at 8:30.
Ernie Kuyt earned his second
shutout of the season behind the
fine defensive work of Ted Smith
Ian Todd, and nimble Jackie
Jergen Schilling banged home
three penalty goals and Chick
Siew added a field shot to give
Varsity the tie, VGH tied the
score in the final minutes with a
penally shot on injured goaly
George  Plawski,
The first goal for the hospital
men was somewhat in doubt, but
il   was  ruled  good.
In Friday's win, the Birdmen
displayed a good brand of ball
as they held down the Western
machine defensively, while offensively they spread the scoring for a real team effdrt.
The first half of the game was
very evenly contested as Western
took a small lead early in the
game and it was not until well into that first period that the
Birds were able to overtake
and pass them. So, they left the
floor at halftime, with UBC leading 27-25.
The Birds ran away from the
Vikings in the second stanza
and in just a few minutes had
piled  up a  48-33  lead.
Coach Jack Pomfret cleaned
the bench then and the substitutes for the starting five managed to maintain    the lead.
An interesting sidelight of the
game was the fact that while
John McLeod only got 14 points,
Carter, Madill, and Wild were
very close behind him.
Saturday night, the Thunderbirds invaded Bellingham. They
started the contest off with a
rush   and   jumped   to   an   early
lead. Then Western got hot. At
half time they led 28-23.
The score shot up 49-29 before
thc Birds were able to get an
offense going. But, the lead was
too great and they succumbed
There is a good chance for another win this coming weekend
as one of the teams to be played
is the Eastern Washington Savages, whom the Birds clobbered
a couple of weeks back.
UBC  Scares
Varsity  XI
Varsity 3-UBC 2
Varsity     grasshockey
swung  back  into winning
Saturday  when   they   beat
smaller    brothers   of    the
team   5-2.
Granville Da Costa led the
winners with two goals. Dave
Mallei, Bhagwhal Jawanda, and
Travel's Molly each scored once.
Doug Howie scored two for UBC.
Underdog UBC surprised the
Varsity Club in the first half
and led 2-0 at half time. Coach
Dr. MacGregor talked the Varsity out of its cockiness and they
settled  down   to  play   hockey.
Run  Over
Don Coryell's Blunderbirds hit
the win column Saturday when
they overpowered a short handed but ringer loaded Blue
Bombers rugger squad 17-3.
Bombers played with only 13
men but made up for the deficiency by using first division
players. Blurbs played well as
a team and overcame Bombers
early in the game, scoring almost  at   will.
Rae Ross led the scorers with
two tries. Ron Stewart, Al Ezzy.
and Mik'e McAllister scored one
each. Terry Weinberg added a
