RCMP OFFICER talks to Forester Stuart Noble Monday after Noble refused to leave his car and
,allow it to be towed away by Busters for illegal parking on main mall in front of the Buchanan Building. Buildings and Grounds' patrolman finally allowed Noble to drive his car
away. Patrolman's car was towed away with a flat tire after large group of students
gathered to support Noble.
Our stand
The Ubyssey cannot accept student council dictation.
The Ubyssey will not be an organ of the student government.
The Ubyssey must be a newspaper to serve the interests of
13,000 students. These interests are not always synonymous
with the interests of the student government.
Monday night the council inserted the thin edge of the
Wedge.
It passed a motion requiring The Ubyssey to print up to
50 column inches of copy prepared by the second vice-president to publicize a resubmission of the grad fee referendum.
The council further authorized the second vice-president
to determine in which editions this should appear and in what
manner it should be presented.
He was also given the power to determine what position in
the paper it should appear.
-     Couneil blamed lack of publicity for the failure of the
previous referendum.
The blame for this;, as usual, fell upon The Ubyssey.
The Ubyssey acknowledges with regret that a lack of
publicity did exist.
There were reasons for this:
• No official council release detailing the referendum
was received by The Ubyssey.
• The second vice-president did visit The Ubyssey once
and gave information to "someone in the office." This
information was not received by anyone in authority.
The resulting story was admittedly inaccurate—but there
v were no facts against which the story could be checked. The
council public relations officer could not found.
What are the results of this decision?
First, the council now has established a precedent for
assuming control of The Ubyssey whenever it wishes. This
means that the student body has no guarantee of seeing non-
council views on vital issues.
A state without active opposition and a controlled press

Graduate fee
referendum
fails at poll
Too few students cast votes
Friday to pass a referendum
exempting grad students from
the $24 Alma Mater Society
fee after their first year in grad
studies.
Malcolm Scott, AMS treasurer,
said he will ask Student Council
to put the same referendum before students again..
He said the refendum needed
2,500 votes cast, with two-thirds
in favor to pass.
Eightly-seven and a half percent of 2,031 voters were in
favor of the referendum.
Scott blamed the small turnout on lack of publicity.
He also said the total amount
of money involved in the vote
was about $1,200 rather than
the " in excess of $16,800" earlier reported by The Ubyssey.
FROSH COUNCIL
Only 25 per cent of the frosh
class turned out Friday to vote
for the four vacant posts on frosh
council.
Bev Bie was elected vice pres-
;dent, Carole Fielder secretary,
Marilyn McMeans executive
member and Phil George treasurer.
Bob McConnell, past frosh
president, blamed the poor turnout on lack of a big campaign.
He said the size of the campaign was considerably smaller
than last year's, "mainly because
there were only four posts contested this year."
(Continued on page 8)
See 'REFERENDUM''
A Ubyssey staff meeting is
is slated for noon today. It is
expected the complete staff will
resign with the editor.
McAfee charged council is restricting editorial freedom of the
paper.
"Since the editor alone is responsible for material appearing
in the paper it is only logical
that he should control what goes
in and where it goes," McAfee
said.
The council minute reads:
"The second-vice-president be
directed to provide for, and the
Ubyssey to print, up to 50 inches
of articles on the '. impending
Graduate Class fee referendum,
in such editions and in such locations within these editions as
the vice-president shall direct."
Councillors charged that poor
coverage in the paper last week
caused failure of the same referendum when an insufficient
number of students turned out
at the polls.
Student treasurer Malcolm
Scott, who moved the motion,
said the move was one of censure not of pressure.
McAfee said: "This is clearly
a matter of pressure. We are
being forced to print council
copy   at  the   discretion   of  the
council PRO; in a place in the
paper designated by him."
Al Sawtoy, president of the
Forestry Undergraduate Society,
read an alternate motion, drafted
by McAfee censuring his owii
paper for the poor coverage but
stating the "layout and the content of the stories was still to
be left to the editor's discretion.
Scott said the intent of the
two motions was the same.
McAfee said Scott's motion
was one of pressure whereas
Sawby's was one of censure and
under the circumstances he had
no choice but to consider resigning.
Student secretary Lynn McDonald termed the Ubyssey action "irresponsible, infantile and
assinine."
Law undergraduate member
Chas MacLean said the council
motions was a "mild attempt" to
check the Ubyssey's operations.
Councillors can not afford to
back down on this issue, he said.
There will be a general
meeting of Ubyssey staff in the
offices at noon today as a result of student council's decision with regard to operation of the paper.
All staff members are asked
to attend.
Brass, Busters fail to
tow adamant Forester
First the patrolmen called in
Busters.
Then, they tried Dean Walter
Gage, the RCMP and the assistant superintendent of buildings
and grounds.
But forestry student Stuart
Noble still wouldn't get out of
his car.
And finally they let him drive
'away—and towed away their
own car.
The patrolmen stopped
Noble's car when he stopped in
front of the Buchanan building
Monday morning,   he said.
"I went into the building, put
my book, in my locker," Noble
said, "and when I came back,
about two minutes later, they
were hooking this thing up."
Noble said he got into his car,
while the Busters driver worked, but found his keys missing.
He protested in vain to the
patrolman and then he and Howard Rafferty, Education I, decided to sit it out.
The patrolman ordered the
Busters driver to move the car,
but he refused.
He told the patrolman that the
car is not insured when occupied
while being towed.
So they tried to get Noble out.
He refused.
Then the RCMP officer came.
He talked to Noble but did not
order him out of his car.
Then a group of 50 students
chanted:
"Don't worry fellow we won't
let him tow you away."

Letters to the Editor
Guest editorial
Election: Where ?
Editor, :
fhe 'ybyssey,   ,' _"  ;■'■"'"
Dear Sis:    -..    .-,  r -.; .• ■■     .
. I wa» one of the few freshmen to vote Friday, in the most
disgraceful election fiasco I have ever had the misfortune of
witnessing.
This ridiculous procedure .began two weeks ago, when
nominations for the Frosh Council were opened. The fact
that nominations were open was very poorly publicized, and
few Freshmen other than those at the Frosh Retreat knew
that the positions were indeed open for nominations last week.
The response from the freshmen was equally as apathetic as
was the publicity.
i   Four positions, among them that of Frosh President, were
filled by acclamation; only four were contested.
Thus the week of nominations closed, and the campaign
week began. Faint signs of spirit appeared in the form of
posters proclaiming certain of the candidates, but where were
the campaign speeches? Posters certainly impersonal at best,
and a chance to see and hear the candidates and their qualifications, would have given students a much better set of criteria
for judging them, one against the other.
It is my understanding that during the Student Council
elections, speeches are made in the classrooms. This procedure
was not carried out to any extent in this election.
There was however, one chance for the freshmen to hear
the candidates speak, but how was the freshman to discover
when and where he might have this opportunity? The fact
that the campaign speeches were to be held in Arts 100 was
kept a very-well-guarded secret. Consequently, the assemblage
Was a feree. There-Jire over 3,000 freshmen on campus, and
-there were-Jtess th§a 100 in the audience for the speeches.
- Tha. f|pal igpipsifiBy was the invasion of the redshirts, to
::win tSe? ^frtem^ter>^several of the candidates to state their
positions, r
I realize tftiat I am being presumptuous, but it is my firm
conviction that the members of the freshmen class are not
responsible for the failure of this election—the blame rests
squarely on the senior students, who must necessarily conduct
the elections.
The general apathy surrounding this election had spread to
me during the past week, and I was really only mildly disturbed
about the whole situation.
However, when I went to vote in the Buchanan Building
the ridiculous nature of the whole election hit me full in the
face, when I discovered that there were no voting booths. The
secret ballot came to Britain in the nineteenth century. Ap-
parntly it has not yet come to UBC.
The election was a travesty of the democratic process of
choosing people for public office.
John Cairns.
The Ubysscsy agrees with Mr. Cairns'. The man in charge
of this year's frosh elections was outgoing frosh president

Hear ye! hear ye!
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On behalf of the Conservative Club of the University
of British Columbia I hereby
challenge the Social Credit
Club to debate on the following
resolution:
Resolved that *he method
used by the Social Credit Government to expropriate the
British Columbia Electric Company should undermine the confidence in British Columbia of
both Canadian and foreign investors.
The Dfibating Union has
agreed to sponsor and organize
this debate and would naturally provide an impartial chairman.
Perhaps a "Student Forum"
debate with audience participation would be most interesting to the student body
especially if it were held in
the Brock Lounge. In order
that we might both have time
to , prepare our arguments I
feel that Thursday the 26th day
of October at 12:30 would be
a date suitable to both clubs.
I am sure that your club will
eagerly accept this opportunity
to defend the S o e ial-^Credit
Party over this vital issue by
promptly agreeing to assume
the negative ro'e in this debate.

More on Jack
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Like the little boy who feels
he must do someting naughty,
the moment parental discipline
is lifted, Jack Ornstein feels he
must take advantage of dem-
cracy's gift "free speech" to
write shock appeal articles
about his psychological a n d
biological pressures: This he
calls a "relevant issue"
What I would like to know
is why he thinks it is the only
relevant issue worthy of discussion? What his latest article
states, in essence, is that he has
the right to voice his opinions,
but we, in turn, have no right
to voice ours, in opposition to
his.
Universities are halls of
learning, not borstal institutions, and as such could produce a very worthwhile paper.
I do believe thatyoung, impressionable minds could do well   on  this   (and  presumably  any   other  similar)   issue.
Un:t.i Building why not lock
the conference participants in
Brock Hall some Saturday or
Sunday. For "Brock" was an
earlier attempt at the Union
Building concept, and we
would be able to see first hand
the good points and bad points
of the present set-up.
2. For $1600 dollars I imagine the Student Council
could have a 16 page lithographed brochure mailed to
every student on campus with
a detailed explanatiqn of the
whys and wherefores of the
Student Union Building, Totem
and The Ubyssey.
Each student could be asked
to fill out a questionaire inside
the booklet and return it to
council. So that our councillors
could guage students opinion
on the $3 million structure
that we may be paying for over
the next three or four decades.

Hooray Jock?
Editor,
• The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Hip, hip, and a hooray for ,
Jack Ornstein! Let us all rally
with pen and ink in hand and
splash out in rags at mouth-
honored virtue. Lay on, Jack
O., with a splash!
Because the-" university is a
place for "minds" no longer infantile, no longer closed, no
longer controlled by others,
"Jack Ornstein maintains that
it is our freedom to challenge
modern morality. Jack Ornstein is right: we must not lose
this freedom.
In testing the mores  of  our
society, however, we dare not
use sensational or crude methods alone; ^f Or logic eloquence ;:
and wit are ours.
I respect your right to speak,
Mr. Ornstein, but I will not
stop to listen unless I hear an
argument persuasive — logical
eloquent    and    witty.    I    too
would uncover hypocrisy, evil
and prejudice, but would not
expect  an  audience  if I   used
merely the sensational and the
crude.
The pen is mightier than the
sword not because it can make
splashes on a page, but because
it is a tool for convincing argument.
PAUL SWENNUMSON,
Education  Grad.
Glad to see Jack has at least
one   careful   reader—Editor.
Forking? again?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Student Parking is an acute
problem—there are more cars
than parking spqces. I would
like to offer the following suggestion which would alleviate
the situation.
Designate specific rows in
both lots "A" and "C" as "Parking for Small Cars Only' with
the result that 3 rows of cars
could be parked in the area
that 2 rows are presently parked.
The increased parking area
would result from 1) small cars
are % the length of American-
sized cars.
2) the width of the 'aisles'
between the rows of parked
cars could be reduced — small
cars require less manouvering
area.
Questions which will naturally arise are: 1) Are there
enough small cars on campus?
Yes—approximately one out of
every three cars. 2) Would the
small car drivers use these
areas? Yes, especially if they
were located fairly close to the
front of the lots. 3) Would it
descriminate against large car
owners? Unfortunately, yes!
BUT—with the increase in the
number of cars, with the lack
of money to provide more parking area, with the threat of a
$5 parking fee—can we afford
not to discriminate?
PETE GRIFFITHS
Our   stand
(Continued from page 1)
is usually thought of as totalitarian. Could this be happening
here?
The council has authorized the second vice-president to control the content and layout of the paper in this instance. This
means that council can slant the coverage in their own favor
without this sort of thing and
that publishing articles of a
higher calibre would do more
good than harm.

SHIRLEY P.  FORKING,
The Editor, in theory solely responsible for all material
appearing in the paper, has been supplanted by the council
public relations officer. It is now the latter who is to decide
what will appear in the paper and where it will go.
The Ubyssey, like any student volunteer organization, has
made mistakes. It acknowledges them. It sees, however, no
need to apologize for its efforts.
It is the students of this university to whom the student
council and the editor are responsible, who must decide the relationship of The Ubyssey to the council.

Today you shall taste of capers stew, the recipe known only
to the CUP editor.
The first ingredient is our
Completely Useless People nomination. To be accepted the pest
should be known to all by his
work yet his praises unsung.
Two nominations which come
readily to mind are our garbage j
intellectuals who demonstrated
their prowess in the Brock Oct.
6 and our colorful kindergarten
children who love to mar works
of art and write witty slogans
on fences.
These must be disqualified
however as their work has been
noted on the editorial page.
Despoiled of two promising
types, the nomination will go to
those people who insist on putting their books away with
enough noise so the last ten
minutes of the lecture is inaudible.
I can't understand how Drift
Words- could- miss the very important fact that the alarm bells
in the Buchanan building are
called "flush horns". To be rung
at graduation no doubt.

The McGill Daily is reporting

The ransom of 3,500 pints of
blood for the blood drive and a
bunch of bananas may not be
paid. The co-ed escaped briefly
to declare that she would never

it takes all types to make up a

My favorite reading is the
little ears of student newspapers.
Before the little white-coated
men come I shall explain. The
ears of a newspaper are those
little boxes which appear in the
upper corners of the front page.
Here are a couple from The
Varsity, U. of Toronto:
"Send a car to a parking lot
for the winter." and again; "We
shall never surrender but we
won't fight."
A pair of Dalhousie Gazette
ears proclaim; "The first coeducational institute was Eden."
It appears masochism is making a comeback. The Village
Voice, printed in Greenwich
Village naturally, has a picture
of The Village Pain Shop on the
front page. The shop probably
specializes in exams which can't
be passed.

HAMILTON (CUP) — £ Mc-1
Master student has been sus-!
pended from the musicians
union and the university threatened with "blacklisting" because he and other campus musicians cut a record after the
union forbid them to do so.
Bruce Littlejohn, a fourth
year honors history student, and
leader of the campus jazz orchestra, will take the rap for the
band members some of whom
are professional musicians.
The Littlejohn group, which
supplements its university expenses by playing at many McMaster dances, was forced to
cancel its engagement Oct. 20
for the university homecoming
weekend because the student
council was informed that the
RCAF Trenton band would not
play that weekend if Littlejohn
appeared  earlier.
The trouble started last spring
when the group decided to, make
i record as a memento of their
voars together. Some of the
i£<nd have been with Littlejphn
;ince high school. Since ;the band
members bought "stock" in the
record so they could produce it
and because of the cost involved,
the union members agreed to
orego the regular union fee for
;idemen.
Littlejohn     approached     the
union at that time and told them
he wanted to make the record
and limit its sale to 400 copies
to be sold in the McMaster bookstore with the profits to go to
the university music association.
Both the local secretary and
the Canadian president Walter
Murdoch refused him permission. However, the band decided
the memento was worth it and
went ahead with their plans.   •

Sir George withdrawal
causes controversy
The withdrawal of Sir
George WilliamsrVniversity of
Montreal from the National
Federation of Canadian University students has resulted
in a more critical examination
of the federation on Canadian
campuses.
The history of NFCUS, as
with all national organizations
in Canada, has been a series
of crises. Here is background
and comment on the latest.
—Editor
'Appalling
ignorance'
in Toronto
THE   VARSITY
University of Toronto
Toronto, Ontario
Last week in this paper a
poll was run requesting students opinion on the National
Federation of Canadian University Students. The response
to this poll showed appalling
ignorance on the part of the
students of the University concerning this organization.
The University of Toronto
is the largest member of NFCUS; as such it makes the
largest fee contribution. This
great responsibility borne by
our student government, is
shared by the'students them-
. selves. If they remain ignor-:
ant, sur ely it is a disgrace
both to the University and to
the students themselves.
We are not advocating that
U of T should withdraw from
NFCUS; far from it. We feel
that NFCUS is, and will continue to be, a solid and worthwhile organization. It has
done a great deal of good in
, tepns of practical .benefits, for
Canadian University students;
of equal importance is its function as a national mouthpiece
for the Canadian student body.
It is even more of a shame
therefore, that an organiza- -
tion, with such a splendid record, constituted for such good
reasons, should fail in what
should be one of its prime responsibilities that of public relations.
At the beginning of each
school year considerable time
and effort go into what has
been aptly termed 'the orientation period'. During this program all the campus activities
and clubs are thoroughly explained and advertised to the
students. All that is, except
NFCUS. The extent of its promotional activity seems to be
stationing a few bored looking
students at tables near the
registration queues to police
piles of imposing looking literature on student insurance
policies and overseas tours.
I if.     3f»     V
Perhaps now that former
TJ of T student has been elected as NFCUS President, interest, on this campus will increase. But this is only a hope,
and its fulfillment here cannot be applied to other Canadian campuses. What actually
is needed is an aggressive sales
program, a program directed
at selling to the university student what he has already paid
for — membership in NFCUS.
We knpw Walter McLean
as a vigorous and strong individual. We hope he sees fit
to ase his ability to cast off the
shrounds;of-esoteric interest
that how envelop NFCUS.
We Talso wish him/well.

The Gazette tells:
What NFCUS does for you
THE GAZETTE
Dalhousie   University
Halifax, N.S.
What is NFCUS? In a few words it is a federation of Canadian University Students from
36 universities and with 86,000 students. Its
purpose is to provide' a means of communication between the students from Newfoundland
to British Columbia arid all intermediary points.
v        v        v
What does it do? First of all through its annual congress it brings together the students of
all universities through the representation of
their student council presidents and other
student leaders. At this congress they can discuss the problem on their campuses and hope
to find anwers from other univerities that haye
' the same problems and solved it.
The most imjpottantsanction of NfCUS- however, is as the yoiee of the CanadiaV Student
both to tnir own "government and to governments' throughout   the   world.   It   has   been
through the representation of NFCUS to our
own government that we are now allowed to
deduct our student fees from income tax. It is
through NFCUS that a scholarship scheme has
been presented to the federal government. A
plan which calls for $40,000 worth of scholarships per year at $66 each.
tt*        v        v
On the international level it was throdgh
NFCUS that Canadian students had their say in
the affairs of the Hungarian uprising in 1956,
during which many Hungarian students were
executed.
Canadian students are members of the International Student Conference, an organization
which has members in 70 countries. We were
represented by our own student negotiator
when the past national president of NFCUS,
Jacques Gerin, brought the executive of the
ISC into talks with the International Union of
Students, the communist counterpart of the
ISC.
McGill Daily suggests NFCUS
means little to average student
THE DAILY
McGill University
Montreal,   P.Q.
On a previous editorial page
the Daily criticised Sir George
Williams University for its
move on the NFCUS situation.
This critcism, however, does
not mean that all's well with
the national student federation.
In its reply to SGWU accusations, NFCUS eited the excellent work done by Walter
Tarnopolsky, the Canadian
student observer at the World
Forum held in Moscow. The
press release outlines NFCUS
support extended the Algerian national student organization in its many problems arising from the Algerian liberation movement. NFCUS press
men pat the organization on
the back for its initiation of an
international student work
camp at Coneepcion, Chile.
Well, so do we. If we had
known about these activities
without the help of a press
release conceived in a time of
self-defense, we would have
clapped even harder.
i\y     T*     •!•
The fact remains that, despite these laudibie (and mostly abstract) exertions on the:
international scene, NFCUS;
does not, and never has meant;
much to the Canadian student
body.
In past years the national
congress has been considered a playground for the elite
— those delegates, generally
not student leaders, who are
packed off to the convention
to fulfil the obligations of university representation. Certainly, no substantial reports ever
reached the average student
on campus.
Another select few were introduced to the mystics of national student federation at the
NFCUS seminars. If any conclusions were reached at these
meetings, the decisions were
never brought to the attention
of the student body-at-large.
If the situation has changed,
if •" NFCUS has stirred itself
to some fruitful action on the
national scene, this now trend
of affairs has certainly been
publicity-shy and retiring in
spirit
•x* *t* v
As far as McGill students
are concerned, NFCUS means
al -conference, NFCUS semi-
three things: an annual nation-
nars and a NFCUS-sponsored
life insurance offer. For those
- who are.more " itt the know'',
there is a hint of several NF-
.CUS scholarships.
Since the average student
has so little knowledge of
NFCUS activities, what chance
is he afforded to evaluate the
saga-city of his national leaders?
The NFCUS press release
maintains that the federation
is based on regional organizations. Sir Geogre is clamoring
for "cohesive provincial organizations associated with a national office." For all practical purposes, NFCUS is not
based on regional organiza-
ions; it is, in reality, a national conference which takes
place once a year with various seminars scattered in between.
But neither would the Sir
George suggestion of ^almost
autonomous provincial organizations with (what would turn
out to be) a party line to a national office be any solution
to the situation as it now
stands. Canadian students,
caught between the political
arguments of federal aid 'and
provincial control, need all the
united strength they can mus--
ter. The Sir George plan will
certainly disperse any possible
national force; but SNFCUS
as it now- operates does not
exactly offer an attractive alternative.
COLLEGE
COMMENT

Western Ont.
backs NFCUS
',o the hilt'
THE   GAZETTE
University   of   Western   Ontario
London,   Ont.
The 25th Annual NFCUS
Congress opened in Kingston
on Thursday, and it is readily
apparent Western's five delegates are taking an extremely
active part in the proceedings.
They all support NFCUS to
the hilt and do everything in
their power to preserve the
Federation by attempting to
prevent further withdrawals
such as that made recently by
Sir George Williams University.
*     *     *
But while these delegates
take such a vital interest in
the affairs of NFCUS, the
students whom they suppose-
edly represent show very
little knowledge of, and even
less interest in the Federation.
Why is this so? Perhaps it .
is because the many benefits
which NFCUS has to offer
do not filter down to the level
of the average student. NFCUS is undeniably a good thing
for the cream of the student
body, the campus leaders.
They receive a unique opportunity to meet and discuss problems confronting the student
community with their counterparts from other universities.
Above all association with
NFCUS widens their perspectives and broadens their outlook on life. In this manner
NFCUS is achieving a very
worthwile end among the
campus leaders.
* *       *
But this should not be the
only purpose of the Federation. If it is doing its job
properly it should be a direct
factor in the life of every
student. NFCUS is not coming close to attaining this goal,
and on this campus, at any
rate, it does not seem to be
trying very hard to reach the
average member of the student body.
It- is important to remember
that NFCUS is an expensive
proposition, and that it is paid
for out of the tuition fees of
each and every student. We
suggest that the benefits
accrued from NFCUS by a
handful of "enlightened" students is not worth this expense.
* *     *
It is past time the University Students' Council and the
local committee of NFCUS
made a complete re-evaluation
of the situation on this campus. If they cannot devise
some way of spreading the advantages which NFCUS has to
offer more widely among the . *
student body, then they should
follow the path blazed by Sir
George Williams University
and withdraw from the Federation. The honors, which the:
members of Western's delegation are winning in Kingston are impressive, but they
are empty and meaningless if."
they cannot be shared with all
the students of this uniyersity. . Tuesday,    October    17,    1961

McGregor's
claim wrong
—Cornwall
A. charge that Student Council is wasting time reading
Associated College Union's literature for planning the new Stud-
etn Union building was termed
untrue Monday by student president Alan Cornwall.
Cornwall said he is under the
impression that remarks made
by Dr. Malcolm McGregor, head
of the Classics department, were
"designed to present a controversial atmosphere."
McGregor was the opening
speaker at Friday's leadership
conference. He described ACU
pamphlets as "nauseating
drivel."
Cornwall said he felt Dr.
McGregor made statements he
himself does not believe.
"On the other hand," he said,
"several of the things he did say
I completely agree -with."
Cornwall said Student Council will continue to use ACU or
any other literature that will
help them in planning for the
proposed new Student Union
building.
Dr. McGregor also suggested
student council need look no
further than the auditorium cafeteria to find out what is really
needed in a student union building.
"As far as the cafeteria goes,"
said Cornwall, "You have to ad»'
mit the atmosphere is not conducive to relaxing or meeting
people."
Cornwall said a university has
to build it's facilities to meet its
own needs and ' is ignoring
everything but broad principles
outlined in the ACU books.

Football final
still up in air
The 1961 East-West football
final is still up in the air.
The game will depend on who
wins the Eastern Intercollegiate
championship. At the moment it
looks like Queens University,
but Queen's is opposed to postseason games.
UBC is all for having the
game. The decision on whether
the game will be held or not will
probably be reached in the last
week of the season.
Looking ahead to next season,
Birds are trying to get the Vancouver Shrine organization to
sponsor their game against West-
era^Washington here ott September 22.
Western Washington has an
annual Shrine game sponsored
by the Bellingham Shriners.
One week after the Western
Washington game, Birds will
play Portland State University
here. PSU has.received a guarantee of $1,000 from UBC for
the game.
The Institution Politecnico
Nacional in Mexico City also
requested a home and home series with UBC, but it was agreed
that the venture would be too
expensive for both teams. Each
school could have had to cover
the other's travelling expenses
on  alternate years.
tchewan Huskies was the first
victory by any team in the
league. There have been two
ties.
Halfback Jack Schriber set the
pace for UBC, packing the ball
74 yards around end, for a touchdown on the Birds' fourth play
from scrimmage.
Halfback Peter Black capped
two more first-quarter matches
with touchdowns. His first came
on a 60-yard run, the second
from eight yards out.

Coach Frank Gnup was pleas
ed with UBC's play generally,
and with quarterback Barry
Carkner's quarterbacking in particular.
"He didn't pass much, but he
didn't have to," Gnup said. "He
sure called a good game, He had
the  team moving real well."
Other players who pleased
Gnup included Jackie Shrieber,
who showed badly-needed outside speed, Pete Black, who
made good runs, and Dick Zarek"
who hit hard up the centre.
Gnup said there are definitely
holes to fill tout that UBC looked
stronger than they have all year.
Gnup feels Birds have a good
chance to win the conference
championship this year.
"We're the team to beat now,"
he said.
In the Bird's next outing
against" Seattle Ramblers they
will have more depth at quarterback and defensive half. Stan
Knight, who was earlier suspended from the team for disiplin-
ary reasons, has been reinstated.

Will attend contact sports
UBC to get team doctor
By CHRIS FAHRNI
UBC will have a physician
in attendance at all contact
sport games for the first time
in its history.
Athletic Director Bus Phillips said that a qualified physician, supplied by the University Health Services, would
be in attendance a tall football, rugby, and ice hockey
games.
Dr. Morton Hall, who attended the Saturday football
games last year, has been suggested as the leading candidate for the position.
The doctor, working with
the Health Service, will probably have a staff of three or
four assistants. He will be paid
by the Men's Athletic Committee on a per-game basis.
The team doctor, who will
carry on a downtown practice,
will also act as an advisor on
athletic injuries, said Dr. Archie Johnson, director of the
Health Service. ~
*r   t*   •*•
Because at least one doctor
will be on the campus Saturdays at a football, or rugby
game, any grassliockey or soccer injuries which might occur could be attended to.
"In the past," said athletic
derector Bus Phillips, "someone might get hurt in a game
Saturday afternoon, and there
would be no one at the Health
Services."
"Now there will be no need
for the fellows to drive down,
to St. Paul's or somewhere
just to check a possible injury," he said.
Under the rules of the Western Intercollegiate league
universities m u s 1 provide a
doctor for all home football
and ice hockey games, Phillips
said.

"Aw c'mon officer don't let
these  jokers  tow   him away.
Then Dean Gage arrived. He
told the pair they could get out
of the car and let it be towed
away and appeal the action. at
the traffic appeal board or remain and appear before faculty
council.
They stayed.
Again the students came to the
defense of Noble.
Finally, Len Bayly, assistant
superintendent of B and G, told
Noble and Rafferty to get out
of the car within one minute
ot'^face the consequences.
They sat tight,
Sixty seconds passed.
Bayly ordered the Buster's
trupk to releaise the car.
The students cheered.     '
Noble drove away.
Busters hooked up to the patrolman's • car. It had acquired a
flat  tire.;
Bayly said Noble will probably be tried before Faculty
Council. Noble said he has not
yet been informed of the charge
or the time and place.
