By CHRIS FAHRNI
Entertainer Rolf Harris will
unveil a new wrinkle in his wobble board at the Homecoming
pep meet Thursday noon.
"I've written a couple of new
songs," the bearded, Australian
singer, actor, artist, pianist,
mimic, composer etc. said.
"One's about a maldjusted t$en-
; ager, the othfers about a dance?
who gets in* troutefc' with]thai
girl friend." ; •■       \<^".' ,'nK
;; Harris Williibe bsjiked up on
'His arrangements by| his Arctic
Club t accompanists; The Chris
Gage Trio.
Harris, who has ap pe a red
three times at UBC, is releasing
ah Australian Christmas song oh
records, and has a forthcoming
TV appearance on the" Chanttel
8 "West Coast" program in two
weeks.
Once a backstroke swimming
champion in Australia, Harris
began singing at University. "I
started in Education, but ended
up as a table tennis major," he
said.
But it was in England that
he acquired his unique style,
and turned semi-pro.
Harris' style contrasts sharply with the American "sick"
school of comics. He sings a
rowdy Australian hunting song,
then paints a 10 second picture,
then runs off a set of slapstick
skits "into the woods" punctuating all with bursts of laughter.
Harris' humor is witty and
fast-moving, filled with wordplays and double entendres. "I
like a story to be funny, and if
it's filthy as well as funny, well
. . . but it's got to be funny," he
explained.
Prefering performing at  universities   to   nightclubs,   Harris
i feels    the    university   audience
gives him more opportunity to
express his comic individuality.
"The students catch little innuendoes and complex asides
which night-spot crowds miss,
and they often are way ahead
of me, laughing almost before
the words are out of my mouth,"
he said.
"I like,to involve the audience
in my act," he said, "and talk to
people 4S people. The quick-
minded university audience suits
this best."
In other features, the Homecoming queens will be introduced, walked across a red carpet,
and voted on. This is the only
place they can be voted for.
Frank Gnup will introduce
his fpotball team.
- Adnrission is 215 cents, and
free passes to the homecoming
dance can be wton in the lucky
dr.aw.
Three panels
on schedule
Three panel discussions are
scheduled for Homecoming
weekend.
A panel comprising Dr. G. W.
A. Cameron, Dr. C. A. McDowell, and Dr. Patrick McTaggart-
Cowan, moderated by Dr. Ian
McTaggart-Cowan, will discuss
"Canadian Scientific Exodus —
Why?"
Dean F. H. Soward, Prof. William Holland, Dean G. C. Andrew and moderator Dr. James
A. Gibson will discuss "Crisis
1961—Canada's  Position."
Both start at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Law Buildings.
A student-sponsored discussion on "The Challenge of the
Underdeveloped Nations" will
be held at noon Friday in Brock
Lounge.
AT HOMECOMING
Quartet plans "college" act
BEARDED AUSTRALIAN ENTERTAINER Rolf Harris headlines
the Homecoming pep meet noon today in War Memorial
Gym. Harris, backd by the Chris Gage Trio, will present a
nw act to an expected crowd of more than 4,000 students.
His real name is Herbert.
But he (falls himself Kirby
Stone. And* he and his three cohorts call themselves the Kirby
Stone Four.
The group, whom the critics
have called everything from,
■hilarious" to "mad," will be
on campus Friday and Saturday
at the 1961 Homecoming
Dances.
Stone   will   bring   with   him
Eddie   Hall,   who  used  to   play
progressive  jazz  until  his  boss
~ot tired of his sense of humor;
Michael Gardner, the impertur
bable accordionist; and Larry
Foster, the mimic. '
They say Foster's greatest ambition is to bring to the public
the beauty of Eurasian smelting
songs.
But the quartet won't be singing them at Homecoming. Instead the group plans a special
act for university students
based  on their biggest hits.
Homecoming officials said
the Saturday night dance is almost sold out but tickets for
Friday night — organization
night—are still plentiful.
Tickets cost $i.50 for thec Saturday dance and only $4 for the
Friday session.
President Norman MacKenzie will crown the Homecoming
Queen and the Queen and her
two princesses will be presented
Saturday night.
Tables will be set up "cabaret style" this year in an effort
to provide more seats and easier
passage   between  tables.
A completely new scheme of
decoration for the old Armory
has been devised, the committee  reports. Page 2

Homecoming
The 1961 Homecoming Committee has endeavoured to
provide a well-rounded program of events for this, the 35th
Annual Homecoming Celebrations. Each event has been carefully planned and many improvements have been instituted.
Perhaps the biggest difference from previous years will
. be found at the two Homecoming Dances. These dances, being
.   the highlight of the Homecoming weekend,  were  examined
very carefully by the committee and changes have been made
to make them more enjoyable for the students.
The   committee   desired  first  class   entertainment   and
.; we feel we have this in tihe Kirby Stone Four. Decorations
.   were criticized and this year an entirely new approach has been
taken   to this problem. Seating was also a point of discussion
and this will also be handled in a new way this year.
Homecpming is not, however, just a student celebration.
■  In its true concept, Homecoming is a time when graduates return to thSn? Ahrta Mater. I feel all students should remember
i this throughout the Homecoming weekend.
Let us show the returning Alumni that, though our
numbers have reached 13,000 the spirit that was present when
they attended UBC stiS prevails. We, as undergraduates, have
a responsibility to. the returning grads to ^how our hospitality
and make them feel welcome at UBC's 35th Annual Homecoming celebration.
Happy Homecoming 1961!
KYLE R. MITCHELL
Chairman,
1961 Homecoming Committee
From all over	
Homecoming!
From where are they coming?
Some grads will literally be coming from great distances to UBC Homecoming, but the majority from the local
area will be leaving the daily humdrum problems of home
and office to enjoy thirty-six hours of 'highly varied activities
m the home of their friends, their masters and their ideals.
The continually growing Alumni Homecoming Program
is highlighted this year by eight Class Re-unions, the largest
number ever held on this campus. We will see our old friends
on Faculty and Professors Emeriti at the Coffee Hour, two
stimulating panel discussions and, we hope, at the Golf
Tournament.
The new campus cari become more familiar through one
of three tours and a succeeding discussion with Mr. Roy
Jessiman (the University Architect) and Dean MacPhee over
tea or coffee. Traditional Grads vs. Thunderbirds basketball
and a real crucial football game with Alberta Golden Bears
will whet the grads' sporting appetites.
While memories play a large part in Homecoming, the
campus is a living institute and it is the students that keep it
alive. We grads welcome the opportunity to return to see and
talk to the students.
A number of student leaders will be our guests at the.
Campus Revue, and will give us the opportunity to cultivate
a warm Student-Alumni friendship in a relaxed social evening with spot hi jinks in student entertainment.
ALEC H. ROME
Chairman.
1961 Homecoming Con&nittee
Homecoming: how it all started
UBC Homecoming has withstood depressions, wars, fires,
and many instances of apathy
in its colorful 35-year history.
The first steps toward a
Homecoming were made in
the spring of 1^25, when reunions were held in downtown
hotels   and   clubs.
The first official Homecoming was held the next year, in
the fall of 1926, — a four*day
pageant of dances, theatre,
football, basketball, campus
tours,  and  reunions.
But following years and the
degression hampered the event.
It was cut from a four-day
fiesta to a one-day event —
a glorified "pep meet" according to The Ubyssey.
The stadium was completed in 1937, new interest
arose in football and rugby,
and Homecoming was again
made a two-day affair.' The
war years, however, curtailed
most athletic activity, and
Homecoming was again relegated td the posi tion of a
minor event.
After th'e war, Homecoming
carried on; for several years
as a one-day event featuring
a Big Block luncheon, American football, Alumni general
meeting and dinner, a potlatch
in the auditorium, basketball
in the gym, and a dance in the
armory.
It continued along much the
same lines until* 3.954, when
the Brock Hall fixe ten days
before the big weekend forced cancellation of the dinner
and lunch.
Panel discussions, class reunions, and the Friday luncheon were put on sounder footing, and each year since then,
some new event has been
added.

By MIKE GRENBY
Fourteen girls are relying on
good  looks,  personality,  and   a
good     campaign    manager    to'
bring   them   the   title   of   1961
Homecoming Queen.
The coronation at the stu^

Armory will climax a week of
hectic campaigning for the

week.
Monday saw a flurry of banners, posters and leaflets descend on UBC as girls and supporters kicked off their campaigns.
On Wednesday afternoon the
contestants attended a special
tea in the Graduate Student
Centre.
There, nine judges including
columnist Jack Wasserman and
bandleader Dal Richrads' met
and talked to the girls.
The judging took place on the
basis of:
• poise and general presentation.
• beauty of face and figure.
9  personality.
At the giant Pep Meet in the
War Memorial Gym today the
girls display their charms to
the great unwashed masses.
Then after much internal
struggle the multitude will vote
for its  three favorite  females.
The Pep Meet voting will account for 40 per cent of the
total points awarded with the
remaining 60 per cent coming
from the nine judges' choices.
A special reception will be
held Friday evening in the

TWEEN CLASSES
GREAT TREKKER for 1961 is Hon. J. V. Clyne, chairman of
board of MacMillan, Bloedel and Powell River Co. and one
of the organizers of the 1922 Great Trek: Mr. Clyne will be
presented at the Homecoming pep meet noon today in War
Memorial Gym,
"Trekker**highest student
award toUBC graduates
The Great Trekker award, the
highest awrard given by undergraduates ; to an alumnus, is
based on the original 1922
march to the campus.
This year's Great -Trekker is
Hon. J. V. Clyne, chairman of
the board and chief executive
officer of MacMillan, Bloedel
and Powell River Company.
The movement towards Point
Grey campus began in 1912
when Messrs. Sharp and
Thompson were appointed university architects — apparently
for life. By 1922, a mere 10
years later, the program had
progressed no further than the
skeleton framework of the present   chemistry   building.
By 1922, the students had
adopted the now - recognized
UBC motto Tuum Est—-if you
want to get something done, do
it yourself—and began to gather
signatures on a petition requesting the provincial government
to get off their backsides and
>get the Point Grey campus built.
They also organized the Great
Trek.
