Bennett Receives Key To Buchanan
Building From Chancellor Grauer
"The opening of this building represents one of Dean Buchanan's fondest hopes," said
Dean Chant at the opening of the Buchanan  Building,  Thursday.
In presenting the keys of the building to Chancellor A .E, Grauer, Premier W. A. C.
Bennett stated the completion of the building was only the first step in meeting the needs of
the expanding university.

Love.
Illicit Love.
Lecherous Illicit Love.
For the uninitiated, "Her
Scienceman Lover" is quite an
experience. It is a traditional
presentation, giving everyone a
slice of the fascinating folkways
of   U.B.C.
This play is a perennial part
of frosh week and many upperclassmen come back to see it
year after year.
It can be seen on Friday, September 20 and Monday the 29th
in the Auditorium. Admission is
25c a person.
This year it is to be directed
by Joan Ried. The members of
the cast remain anonymous.
RHYS CARPENTER
TODAY ON HUMANITY
Professor Rhys Carpenter
speaks to all students today
at 12:30 in the Auditorium.
Dr Carpeniei*, who is a Professor Emeritus of Bryn Mawr
College, will speak on "The
Humanities for the Future."
He expressed the desire that
the building, "continue the splendid tradition of the man, whose
name it bears. May it be used
wisely and well."
The opening followed the special congregation from which the
Academic procession, still in
their robes, proceeded along the
main mall up to the front entrance where the formal presentation was made.
EXPRESSED REGRET
Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie in
making the introductions, expressed his regret, that Dean
Buchanan's widow, who passed
away only a few weeks ago, had
been unable to be present at the
official opening.
Dean Chant, in his remarks
following the presentation,
stated   the   ceremonies   marked
I the occasion when the Humanities received special recognition
'. from the Universily,
1 He pointed oul that the building was already being used to
capacity, and that il would pay
great dividends  in terms of the
| future of the province and lhe
country,
1 OPENED FOR INSPECTION
After     the     ceremonies,    the
I building was opened for inspec-
i tion, and coed's were on hand to

Epstein?
UBC students have as many
different opinions about Sir
Jacob Epstein's statue of Christ
as the  people  downtown.
Not content with running an
article Thursday advocating that
the university acquire the controversial work, The Ubyssey
asked a cross-section of students
what they thought of the proposal.
"It is a powerful thing. I
would be very pleased to see
something like this on our campus,"  said   Dave  Wells.
On the other hand, Gordon
Gibson said "Every time I see
a photograph of that thing, I
want to pick  my nose."
Sludents divided evenly into
three groups, those who hate the
statue, those who love the statue,
and those who don't understand
the statue.
Dave LeWali thought The
Ubyssey's article was a joke, and
as such he said it was "first
class."
Here's a sprinkling of the most

Everything
Goes But Ink
Everything flowed but the ink at the second Jubilee Congregation, Thursday.
The inkwell ran dry on M. J, Coldwell and he was forced
to sign the book with his own pen.
But this did not mar the col- j —— .
orful ceremony which marked
UBC's Golden Jubilee.
Seven Canadian statesmen received degrees at the congregation held in the War Memorial
Gymnasium.
Rev. H. F, Woodhouse made
the invocation.
Following the invocation,
Chancellor A. E. Grauer commented on the history and future of the university.
"We can look forward to a
challenging and rewarding future," he said,
Receiving degrees were:
Hon. Frank M. Ross, Lt. Gov.
of B.C.; Rt. Hon. John G. Diefenbaker, prime minister; Hon. Lester B. Pearson, federal ©ppsition
leader; Hon. W. A. C. Bennett,
premier of B.C.
Hon. Lester B, Pearson, leader
of the Opposition; Hon. Brooke
Claxton, president of Canada
Council; and M. J. Coldlwell,
national leader, C.C.F.
Congregation speaker was Sir
Hector  Hetherington,   principal

Rhodes Forms
In By Nov. 1st
Rhodes Scholarship applications are to be submitted to the
Scholarship Selection Committee
by November 1st.
This Scholarship, worth 750
pounds at Oxford, will be presented  to  a  UBC  student.
There is no examination required for the scholarship. The
selection, made by provincial
committees, is based on personal
interviews and on the candidate's record.
Scholastic ability is the -prime
factor, but character, leadership
ability and interest in outdoor
sports are important.
The most important requirement is some definite quality of
either intellect, character or
both.
Rhys Carpenter, archaeologist - extraordinary,
will be lecturing today in
the Auditorium instead of
in the Gymnasium as previously advertised. Mr.
Carpenter is an extremely
entertaining lecturer who
will "most certainly keep
you on the edge of your
seat", said Professor MacGregor last night. The
lecture will begin promptly at 12.30 noon,

Is Housing Essential?
The use of Canada Council grants by universities for construction of student residences has been challenged in the
House of Commons by the Auditor General.
In his annual report presented to the House in August,
he suggested such use of grants might not be in accordance
with the purpose of the Council which is "to foster the study
and enjoyment of the humanities."
Since the Hon. Brooke Claxton, president of Canada
Council is on the campus and since UBC has made good use
of Council grants for residences this is a good time to examine
the Auditor General's suggestion.
The advantages to students in being able to live on the
campus while attending university are manfold.
The extra time gained by not having to commute to and
from the campus can be used to study and to make fuller
use of university facilities.
The comfort of living in well-built residences as opposed
to old army huts is fairly obvious.
These two factors alone would greatly add to a student's
enjoyment of studying.
The university itself draws benefit from a large number
of resident students.
A true university student community with its centre on
the campus has developed in the past at universities who are
able to house the majority of students or, the campus,
One only has to turn to Oxford fur an example of tlie
effectiveness of such a community.
W. C. Costin, president of St. John's College, Oxford,
speaking at the Academic Symposium Wednesday warned
against the clangors of losing this student community through
over-expansion making the relative number of student residences decline.
He stated that Oxford was on its guard against this happening.
UBC has never been able to have a great many resident
students.
Grants from the Canada Council have made it possible to
una
residences here.
If grants continue to be made to such projects we can
look forward to the number increasing.
Then we too can fully foster "the study and enjoyment
of the humanities."
Poor Show
E.iitor. The Ubyssey,
Dear Sit".
Attending' the Symposium
Wecinesdc.y night, was an experience that I will long re-
mesuber. The speaker, Dr. Cos-
im, covered his subject Ihor-
om.hly f-ncl entertainingly, but
ii is not the eloquence of the
speaker al-.me that moves me
to   write you.
What incensed me was the
fact that there were only three
undergraduates in attendance.
Dr. MacGregor pointed out in
thj? Tuesday edition ol The
t'hyssey that the Symposiuir*
was primarily for students.
If he had been silly enough
to expect only students at Wednesday night's speech, Dr. Cos-
tin, the emsinent scholar, historian, and Dean of St, John's
College, Owford would have re
ceived   a   rather   hollow   welcome.
Common courtesy should
have compelled some people to
attend-—-evidently we lack that
—ihe interest in education
should have seen more students
there, this interest must also
be lacking, . . ,
Th Im\yssey. I see this year,
is taking a fence riding policy
in   the;;;  editorials.
In your Thursday editorial
you ocgan weil by blaming the
students, but. then you made
all sorts el' reservations ending
up wh;i the much hackneyed
phrns-e  oi late. Tuum Est.
What is needed is seme ef-
joorive blasts which will remove this student apathy and
shock them right out of their
Ivy League skins,
Yours sincerely,

Ed. Note: Third year law
student Ben Trevino represented UBC early this month
at the -NFCUS National Seminar on the University of Western Ontario campus.)
On September 7th, forty-
three students from all but
three of Canada's universities
gathered for a week of talk.
Perhaps "talk" is not the
word, "dialogue"—in the So-
era tic sense-^would be a better
one. The talk was about our
universities and the role they
play in Canada's future as forecast by the Gordon Commission and guaranteed by John
Diefenbaker's visions.
The National Federation of
Canadian University Students
organized the seminar at the
University of Western Ontario,
and the Canada Council granted funds for the project, Some
sentences and'or questions will
be indelibly engraved on the
memory:
* * *
"Teachers should be a mirror, not a barrier. Students
should develop a liking for a
subject through contagion. The
humanities suffer more than
any other subject if they are
poorly taught. Poor leaching is,
FATAL in the humanities '
(Dean John Leddy—-Sask.)
"The culture of a society is
ils historical social prestige. It
is the sum total of the value-
systems, communication patterns, institutions and social
techniques which give coherence and significance to the
way oi' life of ils members.
One's culture is one's fate."
. (Dr. Jean-C. Falardeau—Laval)
"Anli-intelleclualism is not
a stranger in many universities,
and its encouragement depends
a great deal on the type of individual Boards of Governors
select as Presidenl of the University." (Dr. David Corbett—
UBC).
"Why should Labour give
money and general support to
Universities when they graduate a bourgeois "type", reactionary in his thinking, and
dedicated t o the status quo?"
(Cower Markle. Director fo
Education and Wefare, AFL-
CIO—United Minewovkers).

Space Needed
Editor, Thc Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The parking problem for
students is the worst in the university's history. In the last
four years the student enrolment has increased by almost
fifty per cent, and the facully
lias almost doubled.
During this time, student
parking close to lecture rooms
has been reduced fifty per cent
by the addition of buildings to
the main narking lot, the Buchanan Building, and by the necessity of increasing the reserv-
amples of the questions raised,
the issues debated. We had to
think, to re-examine what had
been fairly "safe" positions in
our thinking. We had to reappraise values. The atmosphere
was charged and heated; there
was a great deal of give and
take on both sides of the lectern.
Besides  those already  mentioned, the list of the remaining
seminar leaders was equally
awesome. Dr. Arthur Tremb-
lay, of Laval University; Dr.
Alan Jarvis, director of the National Museum; Mr. Michael
Lang-ham, director of the Stratford Festival Theatre.
Dr. E. W. R. Steacie, President of the National Research
Council; Mr. C. Bruce Hill,
President of ETF Tools Ltd.;
Mr. Walter'McLachlan, Executive Vice President, A. V. Roe
Canada; and Mr. Eugene Hall-
,man, Director of Talks and
Public Affairs, CBC, were
some of the others on the list.
* * *
But such was the quality of
both the seminar leaders and
the participants that little time
was wasted in awe. The questions and contributions from
lhe students were aggressive
'.om the beginning. We must
have conveyed a different impression to each person who
led a seminar topic.
Alan Jarvis told us of his
growing impatience with people
who take one hasty look at an
example of abstract art, turn
around and tell the world "I
could do that if I tried." One
of these days, threatens Mr.
Jarvis, he will take people at
their word, and we will have
a touring exhibition called
"They Tried." He looked
shocked when we applauded.
Mr. Gower Markle, of the
United Mine workers, looked
shocked when he discovered
that 33 out of 43 of us would
soil our hands to work our way
through University. lie concluded we were not sn reactionary as he had thought, but
then, we were "an exceptional
group."
■A- * *
Mr. C. Bruce Hill, President
of ETF Tools, coined a new
word that is destined to spread
lo every campus in Canada. A
ed sections for parking permit   '
holders.
The fact that cars can be
parked in the cvnlvc lanes of
the main parking lot and still
leave room for ears to turn is
proof that tho double rows are
too widely separated. Few
students know that parking is
permitted only in areas marked
"Student Parking."
All drivers could help by
parking their cars closer together, and by using more car-
chains to cut clown on the total
number of cars on the campus,
Sincerely,
PETER HEBB, Com 2,
D. HOPKINS, Arts 4
university degree in the liberal
arts would help a person in the
business world, he said, "but
if you really want to get to the
top, you've got to have the old
gazook."
The discussion that statement led to will probably leave
Mr. Hill distrustful of all universities, and find him endowing a university that will instill its graduates with "gazook."
There were no concrete solutions reached, nor were we
asked to formulate any. The
purpose of the seminar was to
make students aware of the
problems and questions facing
universities in Canada, and
through publication and communication to make as many
students in Canada aware of
them.
*        *        *
How much stress should be
put on a staff member's research? Should universities encourage research in such things
as the sociological implications
of mass media advertisements,
while their Commerce departments may be teaching mass
media techniques?
How should universities resist the pressures to add more
and more "vocational" subjects
to their calendars? Should they
resist at all, or is this part uf
the!;- functions?
W h a t a b o u t p r o 1 i f e r a t i o. -'.'
Are we becoming too concerned
with "'Melhoclology?" Are vve
challenging students? Ii the
universities are to continue using the elementary and high
schools as a whipping boy for
the mediocrity of their graduates, why aren't the universities publicly saying what spe-
cificaiie these schools are clonig
wrong?
These are only a few of the
questions. Have you. given any
thought to them? Thanks to the
Canada Council, there are students throughout Canada thinking and inquiring and examining some of our education;,!
premises. Tiie validity of these
premises lies, bracketed with
question marks, on a great
many minds. A great deal depends on tsieir resolution.
The Ubyssey will welcome
guest editorials and signed
articles for the editorial page,
written by UBC students or
faculty members.
Contributions may deal with
any topje of interest .to university students. They sihould

Sir Hector Views
"Why" Of Education
Universities are the primary place "for free and undirected
thinking," according to Sir Hector Hetherington, Thursday congregation speaker.
"The first duty of a society is
to maintain itself in being, and
to afford its members the most
ample life winch the intelligent
use of its material resources will
allow: and the first duty of a
citizen is to pay his way by making a proper contribution to that
end," he said.
Stating his own "views on education, he commented, "the student stands at the growing point
of his knowledge, that the critical thing here also is less the
'what' than the 'why'."
Sir Hetherington stated that
a liberal education was the way
to wisdom.
"Breadth of cultivation and
liberality of mind is not the exclusive prerogative of the Uni-
verisites.
'But nowhere else can it be
won so naturally as in a University ... it is the way to wisdom: and wisdom even more
than knowledge is our sorest
need. All universities worthy of
t:ie name are places of adventure,"  he said.
Referring to tho use of a
university lo society,. Sir Hetherington said Universitcs and
their staffs help, and will help,
iu the solution cf immediate
■practical  problems.
"Il is wrong to measure their
achievement by its relevance to
the currently urgent. Their assize is of the future rather than
of today,"
He feels the social sciences,
although less finality can be
claimed for their results, should
be received, "not with suspicion,
shut with respect, and be judged
iby its strictly scientific merits,"
In speaking of University
graduates' place in society, he
stated:
"They have been trained to
estimate evidence, to distinguish
th true from the false, the genuine from the specious, and to
consider rather than to be swayed by the fashion or the sentiment of the moment."
"In these days of mass communication and of broad popular
appeal, which so often is an appeal to the lower levels of popular credulity and taste, it is
enormously important that widely diffused in all sorts of callings
there should be men and women
of integral judgment who will
apply and sustain their proper
standards."

Shopping and car pooled UBC's popularity poll Thursday.
The second jubilee congregation came a poor second.
Ubyssey reporter Rosemary
Kent Barber conducted the poll
in the main parking lot Thursday noon. This is what she found
out.
The majority of students were
headed for home to take advantage of cancelled lectures.
"Most of them told me they
had lots of shopping to do," said
Miss Kent Barber.
Bob Seysmith, Engineering 2,
was not interested in the congregation.
"I'm not very interested in
it," he said, "I would rather
go and study."
"But I agree with the Ubyssey
editorial on this, he added.
(The Ubyssey editorial Thursday commented on student
apathy shown in poor attendance at symposium and congregation events.)
Peter Hertz, Commerce 2
wanted "to get some shopping
done."
"I will be in the library studying all afternoon," stated Susan
Tatum, Atrts 1.
Barbara Dobson, Arts 1 was
going to Thursday's congregation.
,fMy French teacher said it
would be a good idea to see it,"
she said.
"I'm not interested in it so
I didn't go—it's about politics
and everything isn't it?" said
one Arts 1 student.
Bill Worsten, Arts 2 found he
was "a little busy today."
"My room-mate is going down
town and we only have one
car," he said.
"I think the Convocation is
above the level of university
students" was the answer received from Pat Tankard, 3rd
year Arts, when asked the question "What do you think .of the
Convocation and why did ypu
not attend?"
John Sandtrcock stated "As a
student of semantics I have become sick of blab." A 4th year
arts student, Lai Boodooshiqg,
answered, "I have no objections
to .it but I had important things
to do."
Glen Moody, Grad. Studies
(Education) "didn't know lectures were cancelled, don't know
the program and I don't know
much about  it at  all."
One frosh thought the congregation was "a once in a lifetime
chance to see the prime minister."

British Universities
Receive Govt. Grant
English universities receive 70 per cent of their income
from, the government, according to W. C. Costin, president of
St. John's College, Oxford.
Professor Costin, whose
speech was part of the Jubilee
Symposium being held at UBC
this week, revealed that the government grants are handled
through the University Grant
Committee.
This committee is made up of
members of (British) universities.
The grants, given in five year
blocks, cannot be cut by incoming governments during that
time. This allows the universities to make long range plans,
Mr. Costin, president of St.
John's College, Oxford, outlined
in his talk the English system
of education through the primary and secondary schools
through to the university levels.
According to Mr. Costin, the
Labor Party's desire to combine
the grammar, technical and modern schools would result in a
lower quality among the grammar type schools.
At present about 20-30% of
English students enter grammar
schools, after taking entrance examinations at the age of eleven.
Sixty to seventy percent go
to modern schools, wihich create
a curriculum not primarily academic to fit the student who
leaves school at fifteen.
The remaining ten percent of
students will go to a technical
school, where they are trained
for  skilled   trades.
Professor Costin said that
many large companies now recruit men from the Universities
instead of from the secondary
schools.
Britain, according to Mr. Cos-
tin, illustrates the difference between the welfare and totalitarian state.
The development of the individual is the most important part
of Britain's educational system,
but as well, said Professor Cos-
tin, "we take care to let anyone
of any origin to reach the top.
"The aim of the University,"
he concluded, "is to fulfil that
noble end."

By KERRY FELTHAM
Hi there! Welcome, shiny-
faced frosh, pink cheeked and
downy chinned, feckless and
firm of step—
And welcome back, slightly
sallow seniors, slitty eyed,
smirking, stopped and shuffling.
But you young frosh! You
keep your bright eyes on this
space each Friday and learn the
sordid secrets of campus survival, carefully dispensed, one by
one.
Learn the secrets of cutting
classes without meeting your
prof in the coffee shop, how to
fool your landlady into feeding
you free, the little known passage to the second floor of Mary
Bollert Hall, and many others—
including the well worn path
to Spanish Banks, the sequestering of salacious young freshettes
for improbable purposes, and a
floor plan of Dean Gage's walk
in safe!
Yes, all these, and more, can
be yours by paying careful attention to the morsels of wisdom,
gleaned through years of bitter
experience.
You want to politic, you say.
Then look right here in the
we^ks to follow—we'll tell you
theshoulders |o slap, the hands
to shake, the backs to stab.
Fashions, maybe, interest you?
We'll be the first to tell you how
to hande weave your own electric galoshes, with Honest Indian designs.
Athletics appeals to you, hey?
Here's wihere you'll find all the
little methods of gaining unfair
advantages—Peter Mullin's soft
spot, Frank Gnup's hard spot
(old Frank doesn't have a soft
, spot . . . all of 'em, including
the location of the Empire Pool
drain valve, ihe trap door in the
440 track, and many, many more;
i Could it be that you'd like
to fleece your friends in a fast
game of three toed Pete' Here's
where you'll find out how not
, to be found out secreting your
own private Diamond Flush in
i the interior of your checkered
vest, and the multifarious methods of concealing minute mirrors
in the peak of your corduroy
cap.
! Does clubmanship appeal to
you. Boy? Then look here to get
your sense of values straightened
, up, lad. Remember, all that jack
| for no work makes Pop quite
annoyed, so vve suggest attending lectures regularly--say one
each Friday.
But the best advice that sagacious old seniors can give you is
to slip  down   to  busy,  bustling
j downtown    Vancouver   with   a
i few   beaver  pelts  and   pick  up
i some brightly coloured beads for
your    young    freshette    friend,
,' and one of tiiose fine fuzzy Jant-
, /en crew necks in  the  iviest of
colors.   Thorstein    Veblen    will
love you  for il.
Then it's all arranged.
'Til Fridav, then.

RHYS CARPENTER RETURNS
Famed Archaeologist To Speak On Humanism
By MARY WILKINS
of
"Humanism   is   a   state
mind, not a set of studies."
This, discloser Professor
Rhys Carpenter, will be the
focal point of his speech today
at 12:30 p.m. in the Auditorium.
Dr. Carpenter ls at U.B.C.
in conjunction with the Academic Symposium, and his ad
dress will climax  the  week's
Jubilee celebrations.
His visit to U.B.C. brought
about a surprise reunion with
a former classmate, Dr. Harry
Logan, who until his retirement was head of U.B.C.'s Department of Classical Studies.
The meeting of the two professors who had not seen each
other  since   1913,  when  they
were both Rhodes Scholars attending Oxford, occurred when
Dr. Carpenter, on a hunch that
he knew Dr. Logan, inquired
of his former teammate:
"Do you play lacrosse?"
It was from Balliol College
at Oxford that Dr.  Carpenter
received his  BA and MA degrees in archaeology.
He then returned to Colum-

Toast to the Commonwealth,

the last Canadian election
which gave the Commonwealth
stability, has served the people
in the past and has great possibilities for service in the future.
COMMONWEALTH VITAL
FORCE
In response to the toast to
the Commonwealth, Dr. D. W.
Logan, principal of the University of London, stated that
although the Commonwealth is
a vital force in the world today,
The Honourable
W. A. C. BENNETT
wered at a banquet attended
by dignitaries from all walks
of life.
This marks the completion
of the two Jubilee Congregations and was attended by recipients   of   honorary  degrees.
The Commonwealth Toast I
was made by the Hon. L. B.
Pearson. He noted that formerly the Commonwealth and the
Empire were a collection ot
territories "on which the sun
never set." Now, however, this
has changed but the Commonwealth remains firmer and
stronger than ever,
Mr. Pearson spoke of a long
unbroken line of monarchs
from Edward the Confessor to

The Chief Justice of the Su

bia  and former  Chancellor of
the  University  of  British  Co
lumbia, Dr. Sherwood Lett, pro-
osed   the   toastto   Canada.   He
noted  that  although Canadian
Confederation   took   place   in
1867, the real beginning of Canada   dated   to   1871   when,   he
said,  "the other  provinces annexed themselves to British Columbia."
"Premier Bennett will, I

He stated that B.C. had joined Confederation to "become

John G. Diefenbaker replied
to the toast to Canada.
He was interested in Dr. Mac-
kenzies opening remarks which
mentioned that the federal government gave assistance to the
university while the provincial
government paid the deficit.
"I will certainly speak to Mr.
Fleming," he said.
"B.C. has made contributions
in the centennial celebrations
which I hope will be copied by
other provinces," he said.
He pointed out that Canada
will, in a few short years, be

ORGANIZE NOW
"It is time to start now to organize those celebrations."
He spoke at length on his
vision of Canada.
"We are all dedicated to one
purpose—the achievement of
a greater Canada—joined together in a spirit of unity."
We must realize the greatness that will be Canada's, he
said.

bia University, where he had
been granted his BA degree, to
earn his Ph.D. in Classical
Archaeology.
For forty-two years, Dr. Carpenter was a professor at Bryn
Mawr College. During that
time he was granted two
leaves of absence when he went
to Greece to be director of the
American School of Classical
Studies in Athens.
Professor Carpenter explained that each country maintains
its own school in Athens, and
each is responsible for its own
digging  and  excavating.
Canadian students attend the
American school, and play a
large part in the Archaeological
studies, he said.
"In fact," said Dr. Carpenter,  "a Canadian,  Mr. Homer
Thompson, was in charge of
the school's most recent pro-
jectexcavating Agora, a great
market place  in  Athens."
Since his retirement from
Bryn Mawr in 1955, Dr. Carpenter has spent much of his
time writing, and helping his
wife train the dozen Doberman
Pinscher dogs which they have
on their farm.
The 100 acre farm is in Chester Court, Pennsylvania. "But
since I can't afford to be a
gentleman farmer, the man on
the adjoining farm helps to
keep things in order."
At present, Dr. Carpenter is
preparing a book on Greek

A new term. A new opportunity for the athletically inclined
individuals to train, practice and try as university athletes.
UBC has twenty-three various sport activities on campus,
ranging from football to cricket, from hockey to curling. There
are openings and always will be openings for positions on these
teams. Each and every individual athlete is welcome to try —•
though he may be Freshman or Senior.
To the Freshman this note is dropped.
Do not worry if you are a small town lad. Be not afraid to
compete against the large city contestants. Remember it is your
ability that is considered not where you are from. Always keep
in mind that no matter how big a name some athlete has there will
always be someone there to replace or outshine him.
UBC Thunderbirds football squad will be travelling to Ashland to play Southern Oregon, Saturday.   Coach Frank Gnup has^j
his crew in better winning spirits than that which the team displayed most of last year.
And a quote from a fan at the Churchill Cup game last week,
"if they had two more Hen woods, UBC would be terrific."
•    •    •
Track and Field practices start next week. To those who may
be interested, turn out at the track. UBC Cross-Country and Track
athletes are producing outstanding results, but still are in need of
depth. ,
It was noted with interest that an investigation will be held
in the matter of awards for student activities. Let's hope this
committee finds out when dealing with sports, that there are more
than just football players on campus.
The UBC Swim Team will be holding workouts every weekday during noon hours at the Empire Pool. Interested swimmers
are advised to make use of the fact that the water in the pool will
be drained out during November, and to take advantage of the
early training facility now offered.
Team managers are reminded that they are to attend M.A.A.
meetings as part of their performance.
Best of luck to Dave Howard and may he overcome his rugger
injuries without added discomforts,
Our belated  congratulations  to the members of the  UBC
Rowing Teams who did so well at the British Empire Games he'ld^

Obligations?''
"This article was written as
a slam against the statue, but
not justifiably." Hank Hawthorn.
"This is the best article B.C.
