Vancouver planning commission.

AMS president, Charlie Connaghan, the area has not been re-

been increased, enabling a more
efficient inspection of the area.
Cancellation of licences is a

zoning bylaws according to
An enrollment of 10,000 students is expected for the winter
The record number is expected further to complicate the
already chronic housing shortage.
Construction tie ups this summer have delayed work on the
men's residences.
One unit was to open in October. University officials have
not received a new completion
date for the first unit.
The university can house 1,270
students on the campus. The
rest must find accommodation
outside the gates.
A. R. Baird, UBC housing administrator, said that all campus

Under the new system students will arrange their time
tables in the Buchanan building
before they pay fees and complete registration booklets.
Officials have worked out a
number of standard programs
to speed registration of first year
"In this way we hope to avoid
timetable clashes and changes
in courses after registration,"
an official said.
The new system is an attempt
to eliminate the long lineups and
waiting periods which characterized registration in the Armoury in previous years. PAGE TWO

Symposium Limits
Hazing To One Day
Student and faculty administration heads warned today
that hazing and regalia are to be confined to one day this year,
September 23.
Reason for the change in
hazing dates is that UBC's Golden Jubilee Symposium will be
held September 24 and 25.
Administration officials indicated severe steps will be taken
against any students who take
part in unauthorized hazing on
those days.
There will be a special congregation for the visiting Commonwealth University heads on
September 24. Official opening
of the Bucha"nan Building is also
set for that day.
' Honorary degrees will be conferred on noted government and
educational heads on the second
day of the jubilee congregation,
September 25.
Those honored include the
Hon. John G. Diefenbaker,
Prime Minister of Canada and
Leader of the Opposition, the
Hon. Lester B. Pearson.
It   is   expected   lectures   and
-labs will be cancelled during the
afternoons of Sept. 24 and 25.
Meet, Eat
Traditional Big and Little Sister Banquet for campus women
will be held in the Armoury,
September 24, at 5.30 p.m.
Freshettes dress as "little sisters" to attend the affair—short
skirts, knee socks, big teddy
bear .bows, etc.—while their big
sisters wear usual campus
A prize will be awarded the
"best dressed little sister."
Following the banquet Frosh
Queen candidates and leading
campus women will be introduced. A singsong and other entertainment are also on the program.
Advance tickets can be purchased for 90c at the WUS booth
in the Armoury during registration week or at the Brock or
the Caf on Sept. 22, 23 and 24.

Free Books
Tell All
Two free booklets, "Tuum

are available for all Frosh at
the Frosh Orientation Booth in
the Armoury during registration.
Both publications include material on A.M.S. committees and
Council members, athletics, student clubs and forthcoming
campus events.

vs. Bras
Not to be outdone by Charm,
Mademoiselle and the Ladies
Home Journal, the Ubyssey hereby offers its own personal
fashion advice to Freshettes.
Point one: stop counting your
In high school you were voted
best-dressed girl because you
were particularly concerned
about having your socks match
- your sweater. At university the
same attribute may earn you
the title of clothes-horse.
Point two: stop counting oth'er
people's cashmeres.
Though one of UBC's finest
time-honored sports is that of
looking at girls, it is, by tradition, limited to male participation.
Nasty remarks about other
people's clothes won't endear
you to anyone with a grain of
intelligence, and won't achieve
the desired end of making yours
look better by comparison.
And now for more prosaic advice.
For classes: skirts, sweaters,
blouses and the occasional jumper, worn with bobby socks or
flatties. For parties, a simple
dress, with heels.
The label "semi-formal" does
not mean you should wear a formal gown lopped off at mid-
calf. A "dressy" dress or skirt
and scooped-neck sweater will
do for dances such as Homecoming.
And, under the heading of
"miscellaneous": take that long
string of high-school pins off
your lapel; throw away those
long tight skirts and sheer
blouses; burn that bomber

Hi, Frosh!
. You'll have heard it a tiresome number of times by now, but
we'd like to add our voices to the chorus anyway.
Welcome, frosh.
We hope you enjoy your stay here.
You've already heard most of the usual welcoming
speeches, and we will not try you with a repetition of them.
But we'd like to point out a few things that are generally
We'd like to point out these things to ycu because so many
students have come here and stayed for years and left without
ever noting them.
Take advantage of the miles of woods and beaches that
surround the universily area. Walk along the beach on a
cloudy day with the tide coming in around your feet and rain
threatening'your bare head.
Take advantage of the Library's evening and Saturday
ljtours. Evenings and Saturdays there's plenty of room and it's
ijriuch more quiet than usual.
Take advantage of the several art galleries and museums
iji or associated with the university. You might even develop a
taste for culture,
Take advantage of the unbelievably excellent noon-hour
lectures, entertainments and concerts. They're cheap if not free,
and an education in themselves.
Take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity -to
ijoingle freely with students of practically every race and creed
and culture. Learn to be tolerant here, while you're still young
enough t<^ learn,
Take advantage of the great minds placed at your disposal—your professors and to an extent your -fellow students.
The University is where everyone has a strong common
"bond, the love of learning.
Oh yes, there are all sorts of things a person can do at
(university to keep himself busy enough that he doesn't have
time to think.
He can join clubs, or play cards ,or sleep, or work his way
through the intricacies of student government, or get drunk and
stay drunk and try to write novels and believe he is learning
about life, or clo any of unnumbered other things while he's
But if you spend your time at university at anything except broadening your knowledge and understanding, you're
wasting your time and money,
Other people's time and money, too, — and more so.
That's why we're exhorting you to get as much out of the
university as you can while you're here. If you don't, you'll
regret it later.
You'll find that the more you put into the university, the
more you  will derive from it.
We hope we haven't been too didactic, cr too saccharine.
We just want you to enjoy and benefit from your stay here, and
we've tried to point, out ways you can do so.
As we said, we hope you enjoy your stay here, frosh.
And much as we'd like to avoid it, there doesn't seem to be
any way to wind up our welcome without saying:
Tuum Est.
President's Message To
The Freshman Class
As President of the University it is my duty—and a pleasant duty it is-—to welcome all
members of the incoming freshman class as they start a new
period of their lives on the
campus of the University of
British Columbia.
To be a freshman is in itself
exciting; but it is also complicated, and at times may be
difficult. I hope that what I
have to say will be helpful,
especially to those who are far
from home and may need some
words of encouragement and
To begin with, I should like
to remind you that this is your
University. It does not belong
to any select group, or to any
isolated individuals. It wa^s
established as a Provincial University by art act of the Legislature in 1908, and it officially
opened its doors in 1915.
Through taxes your parents—
and perhaps your grandparents
—have supported it; and
through the payment of fees
and many other self-imposed
contributions, thousands of
students have helped it to grow
in size and stature.
Certainly the founders had
in mind this idea of community ownership when they chose
the University motto — Tuum
Est, It is Yours. You are here
by right, because you are part
owners, and because you have
qualified academically to enter
this higher stage of your learning.
But this business of ownership and of belonging to a university community is not to be
taken lightly, even thoughtlessly. The University of British Columbia stands proudly
in the main stream of the university tradition that goes back
to thc Middle Ages. We are the
inheritors of thc wisdom of the
ages; we are a storehouse of
vast accumulated knowledge;
and, through rqsearch and
study, we are the openers of
new areas in the ceaselessly
expanding worlds of the mind.
Now by all this, I wish to remind you that your university
years — and especially your
freshman year—will not be a
period of ease and constant relaxation. The acquisition of
knowledge, and of wisdom, is
not easily achieved.
Your instructors will make
severe  demands  on  you;  you
. . . pleasant duty
will be asked to accept a heavy
schedule of classes and laboratories, and an even heavier
schedule of independent study.
You will not be pampered; you
will not have a classroom teacher constantly at your elbow to
help  you.
Basically you will be on your
own—independent adults, free
to choose. It is up to you to
choose your courses and eventually your career; to choose
between the discipline of work
and the deceptive pleasures of
idleness; to choose between success and failure.
Some of this may sound a
bit frightening, even discouraging to you. I don't intend that
it should be. For the University of British Columbia is
essentially a warm, a friendly
place. True, we ask you to
achieve maturity, but you are
surrounded by a large number
of fellow students who are
walking the same path, and
facing  the  same problems.
You will find that they come
from many countries and represent many cultures and many
points of view. Through them
you can gain many friendships,
and you can grow in understanding. You can participate
with them in the process of
learning, and, in such leisure
time as you may have, you can
share with them the pleasures
of social relaxation.
Remember, too, at all times,
that your instructors and professors are human. On the
whole they welcome questions;
they are glad to have you visit
them in their offices; they are
more than willing to give you
guidance and help when you
are faced with particular problems.
For other types of help, you
may like to turn to the Dean
of your Faculty, to the Dean
of Women, or' to the "Counsellors in the Personnel Office.
Do not hesitate to ask for
help if you need it.
If I myself can be of help
to you, be assured that my office is open to you. I, too, was
once a freshman, and can remember with remarkable freshness some of the problems of
Finally, the University is a
vibrant place. The search for
knowledge—just for knowledge's own sake—is a tremendously exciting process; the
preparation for a vocation, a
profession, is a rich adventure;
the search for wisdom and understanding brings with it a
challenge of the first magnitude. If you are worth your
salt, you will find university
life rewarding in the highest
To all, then, welcome! And
may this year especially be
for you a most successful and
a most happy one.
AMS President Welcomes
Frosh On Councils Behalf
Wqlcorne, Frosh, lo the Alma

There are 15 members on
the council, thirteen of which
are elected each spring by the
student body.  The  other two
members are appointed.
The council meets every
Monday evening in Brock Hall,
The meetings begin at 7:30 p.m.
and are open to any students
interested in seeing how the
affairs of the Society are handled. You are encouraged to attend  these  meetings.
The AMS is somewhat similar to the Students' Couricil
in your high school, but here
we are an autonomous group,
completely responsible for our
own decisions.
The autonomy which the
AMS enjoys is a product of
the history and tradition of
UBC. Since the Great Trek of
1922 the student body has always stood ready to help UBC
in time of need. *
As the frosh of 1958-59, and
theh most recent shareholders
in the AMS, you have a responsibility for its future expansion and success.

Cairn Ceremony
A Link With Past
On Friday September 19, at 11 a.m. UBC's most unique and
most traditional ceremony will be held.
Tired of the ramshackle Fair-
view huts that  had  up to that
time served as the university's
site, skidents organized a mass
demonstration downtown.
Then they hiked uptown to
the university gates. As they
marched in to the site of the
unfinished Chemistry Building
(which still stands) they each
picked up a stone.
They massed in the stadium,
waving banners that proclaimed
"Build the University" and other
angry slogans.
They stood and formed in
giant letters of hundreds of students each the letters U-B-C.
They chanted and waved and
cheered and got cold and got
wet and some even got mad.
And then they went to the
Main Mall and laid down their
stones, one on top of another.
Then they went away, leaving their stones as a memorial
of the valiant demonstration.
The stones they left form the
cairn UBC salutes Friday.
It wasn't long after that great
trek of 1922 that the provincial
government got busy and built
the university like the students
had asked them to.
That was the greatest manifestation of the UBC student
sfcody living up to its self-imposed
motto "Tuum Est—It is up to
And it is that remarkable student feeling that has kept the
Cairn Ceremony not only UBC's ;
most unique and most traditional event, but also one of its
most popuiar.

RUGGER is one of the most
popular, most sucessful, yet least
publicized sports on campus.
UBC supports three teams, the
Thunderbirds, Braves and Papooses, which play in the Vancouver and District rugby league. Coached by Max Howell
and Al Laithwaite, the teams
have fared well against such
famed International teams as the
New Zealand All Blacks, the
Barbarians from Britain and the
Wallabies from Australia. The
Thunderbirds also played a
home-and-home series with the
University of California for the
anglican students
St Faith's
KE. 3598-M
New Youth Group
World Cup.   The 'Birds won the
cup last year.
SOCCER is another sport
which competes against Vancouver and District teams. The
Thunderbirds play in the tough
Mainland First Division, while
the Chiefs, % second team, participate in the third division.
Coached by Pacific Coast League star Bruce Ashdown, the
'Birds have always managed to
do well against their competition..
In 1956 an International series
was started with Stanford University. The series was not continued last year, however, because of financial difficulties.
ROWING — Since 1954 and
the BEG, rowing has climbed
head and shoulders above most
other sports at UBC. In 1955,
the Thunderbird Crew was defeated by less than a boat-length
in the final at Henley.
When the famed eight broke
up in 1956, the Junior Varsity
crew members ably filled the
vacant seats. These JV's were
already famous due to decisive
victories at the Newport Harbor
Sprint Championships.

And to quote a well used
phrase: this could be the year
for lhe 'Birds.
This could be the year they "go
up vvith Frank Gnup."
Coach Gnup himself is optimistic about the clash with the
McGill Redmen.
He has reason to be.
First, the 'Birds can"t do any
worse than the 50-4 defeat they
suffered at the hands of Western Ontario Mustangs last year.
Secondly, Feafless Francis has
the nucleus around which to
build a winning team. Well, at
least more winning than last
year's victory-less outfit.

Our Strong Point
UBC grid teams have had a
rather inglorious history in a
decade of Evergreen Conference
Competition. It is considered a
good season if we manage one
win against smaller but scholarship-aided American colleges.
This year UBC's participation
in the Evergreen Conference
will consist of four exhibition
games against College of Puget
Sound, Whitworth, Western
Washington and Central Washington. Games against Southern
Oregon College, Victoria Drakes I
and Oregon Central College of
Education complete the schedule. UBC will compete in a similar exhibition schedule next
year before entering a Western
Canadian Conference with Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in 1960.
At present the Thunderbirds,
under coach Frank Gnup and
assistant Bob Hindmarch are
busy preparing for Saturday's
Churchill Cup game with McGill Redmen.

You'll travel faster...more comfortably
aboard new »(stauvleW>S^/ trains
New self-propelled railway cars are made in
Canada of stainless steel containing Inco Nickel.
They're completely air-conditioned... smooth-
running ... strong, lightweight, fast.
Each car has its own engines and controls. It
can operate as a one-car unit or as part of a train
of cars. Result: better service... because railroads can schedule lower cost single-car trips to
accommodate passengers during off hours.
The new cars are as efficient and economical
as they are comfortable and convenient. And
nickel-containing stainless steel helps make them
so. They travel faster with greater safety—cost
less to operate. Stainless steel doesn't need
painting; it tends to wash itself clean in every
rainfall. Maintenance costs are negligible.
Nickel helps give stainless steel its exceptional
strength and its resistance to rust and corrosion
. . . makes it easier to fabricate. Another way
that Inco Nickel serves the Canadian industries
that serve you.
Inco has recently published a colourfully illustrated
32-page booklet about Canada's nickel industry,
entitled "The Exciting Story of Nickel". It is
written primarily for Canadian youth by Alan King,
but adults will also find it full of interesting
information. Just write to Inco for a free copy of
this booklet. *
