Asks student member
on parking committee
Student Council Monday night called for a complete investigation into campus parking policies.
Councillors voteu unanimous
ly to:
• seek student representation
on the faculty parking committee;
• ask for a joint student-faculty inquiry into all aspects of
campus parking.
The council decision followed

the Building and Grounds department of the strictest parking
rules ever, and a parking fee for
students and faculty next year.

The University flag flew at half-mast Monday, in tribute to Dag Hammarskjold, Secretary-General of , the
United Nations who died in an airplane crash that morning.
Student Council and the Faculty sent telegrams of
regret to the United Nations.
The Faculty telegram stated: "My colleagues and I
are deeply distressed to learn of Mr. Hammarskjold's death.
By courageous devotion to his duties as Secretary-
General; by his wisdom and broad understanding of world
problems, Mr. Hammarskjold made a contribution to the
cause of peace and understanding which we will never
forget, and for which we will always be profoundly grateful. We regret his passing; we remember him with respect.

"This has reached such proportions that we should go as
high as we reasonably can to
find a solution," MacLean said.
"This is a major issue that strikes
on every student."
MacLean, a member of the
parking-appeals committee made
up of three faculty and two students, expressed indignation at
attitudes of some campus traffic
"When I was at the appeals
committee I asked some of them
how they decided whether a car
belonged to a student or a visitor
when it was parked in a visitor's
lot," he said.
"Their only answer was 'we
have our methods'."
Frosh president Bob McConnell said the $5 parking fee for
students is unfair for car pools.
He said that it will cost a car
pool with five members $25 per
year for one parking space,
where a driver who comes alone
could use the same parking
space for $5 per year.
Council decided to send a copy
of the letter to Prof. A. J. Wood,
of animal husbandry, chairman
of the faculty parking committee.
New parking rules
in revised leaflet
Building  and   Grounds   department  officials   Monday,
urged   all   campus  drivers  to
gel    copies    of    the    revised
1961-62  parking  regulations.
Assistant superintendent L.
J. Bayly said the new brochures were issued September
5 and contain regulations concerning night parking.
Further probe asked
Treasurer fails but keeps post
Student treasurer Malcolm
Scott is holding office after
failing his year in Commerce.
Student Council declared
Scott eligible according to a
"legal loophole" in the Alma
Mater  Society  code.
The Ubyssey learned after
an "in camera" meeting of
council that Scott got 10Va
units, IV2 short of the required amount to get credit this
year. But according to the
code he needed only nine
units to hold his council position.
The section of the code covering eligibility says a student
shall be eligible where h i s
course consists of 12 or more
units and the student obtains
an average of at least 50 per
cent and passes nine units.
Councillors said intent of
the section was to rule ineligible students failing their
year, however the wording
allows Commerce failures to
hold oflice.
Student Court judges Mar-
nie Rogers, Laurie Peers and
Fred Fletcher advised council
that Scott is eligible according
to the code but recommended
that the code be re-written to
tighten eligibility requirements.
Tiie court's ruling was not
official as it could not obtain
a quorum and the final decision was left to the council.
Vice President Ere Ricker,
said he was disappointed in
the management of the whole
affair. He thought the Student
Court should be assembled
and review the case.
Co-ordinator Doug Stewart
said, "Scott's eligibility was

President Al Cornwall said:
"Eligibility does not come
under the constitution but under the code, and we will definitely make amendments to
"Code amendments do not
require a general meeting but
must have a two-thirds majority vote in Council."
Cornwall said he believes
Scott is an excellent treasurer.
"He has been extremely
conscientious about all work
and I have never had occasion
to be disappointed with anything I have asked him to do,"
he said. Page 2

Parking... again
During past years The Ubyssey has attacked Busters and
Buildings and Grounds for the state of parking at the University.
Busters certainly aren't to blame. They are doing a job
for which they have been hired. And doing it efficiently and
with a minimum of damage to the cars they handle.
Buildings and Grounds can only be berated for the manner in which they carry out policy they do not set.
We feel that perhaps they enforce almost unenforceable
rules with too much zeal. The patrol is forced to take verbal
abuse from "big-shot" freshmen and unthinking upper classmen. Finally the patrolman gets fed up with it.
He sounds off at a driver who immediately writes an
irate letter to the university president or the bead of the
department of Buildings and Grounds.
The patrolman was doing his job. He has no control over
the policy under which he has to work.
The facilities provided for student parking laave a lot to
be desired. And the situation gets worse every year.
Faculty and staff take up more space each year. That's to
be expected. The University gets bigger each year.
However someone is forgetting one important item. It gets
bigger because more students enrol.
Perhaps it's time we took a look at the body that sets the
parking policy under which we have to live—the University
parking committee chaired by Prof  A. J. Wood.
Throughout the years the university administration and
the Alma Mater Society have enjoyed close co-operation in
matters of joint interest. This co-operation has led to the student autonomy now enjoyed by students at this university.
Last week it was announced that a parking fee would be
instituted next year. Students will have to pay $5 to park
their cars.
We object to this fee. Mainly because the student council
was not consulted or even informed that the step was being
Since this fee directly affects l^OO students, it seems only
logical that they, or at the very least tiheir elected representatives, should have been heard before the final decision was
This same parking committee has also decided to keep
regular students out of close-in parking spaces at night.
If you have a C-lot sticker and want to come to a campus
dance, you have to park in one of the far-flung student lots.
No more open parking at night.
It's a long walk from the "back forty" especially if your
date wears high-heel shoes.
We have been informed that a number of practical solutions to UBC's parking problem have been suggested. None
have been accepted.
What will the new $5 student parking fee do? If it paves
the parking lots, puts in parkades, installs meters or pays for
the installation of new lots, we're for it.
If it merely pays part of the expense of the present inefficiency we're against it.
Cost of parking is going up. Logical. There are more cars
on the campus. Last year the parking committee told The
Ubyssey it cost $12 every time a ear was towed away. The
fine collected was $5 so the cost to UBC was $7.
Further investigation shows the cost to the university is
considerably less than $7. In fact, the cost of employing
Busters is just about offset by the fines collected.
^ We're not trying to imply the parking committee is out
to "foul up" the operation. We are not suggesting the committee is purposely making parking a bigger problem each
We feel that it might be suffering from an ailment over
which it has no control.
I'm sorry, Smediey, but this is positively the last warning. I hear'you've been smiling at the

Has a similar incident occurred when he was

the officer himself considers necessary. For
ing his living at crime would be tempted to
think "If they are allowed to shoot first, and
ask questions later, then perhaps I'd better
get a 'piece' just for my own protection."

Senate probing
prejudice charge
The University senate, as a result of a petition drawn up
last spring, is investigating charges that two campus fraternities
are practising racial discrimination.
Professor A. W. R. Carrothers
and Dean of Women Helen McCrae have been assigned by the
senate to investigate the petition's charges and have sent letters to the headquarters of all
fraternities and sororities asking if they have discriminatory
clauses in their constitutions.
The petition, which had 1,500
signatures, was drawn up and
circulated by fourth year Arts
student Ken Hodkinson. He presented it to the senate with a
letter in which he said the two
fraternities, Sigma Chi and Alpha Tau Omega, say they are
bound to discriminate by t h e
international constitutions of
their fraternities.
Hodkinson said the fraternities
claim they have been trying to
have the clauses removed from
their constitutions. He asked
that they be barred from the
campus until they are successful.
Spring opening for
fine arts center
The University's new million
dollar fine arts centre will be
completed by late spring of 1962,
officials announced.
The building is to have rooms
for fine arts, architecture, drawing, painting, sculpture and ceramics classes.
An adjoining section, to be
built later, will hold a 400-seat
theatre, and extension to t h e
Music department, the anthropology museum and an art gallery.
It is being built on Main Mall,
across from the administration
Hodkinson said the fight to
remove discriminatory clauses
and practices started in 1952
when fraternities and sororities
were threatened with expulsion
from campus unless they cleared
themselves. In 1954 there were
five fraternities who still had
race bars in their constitutions;
by 1960 only Sigma Chi and Alpha Tau Omega still had the
Members of the offending fraternities say that they want the
clauses removed, or have nothing to say, Hodkinson said.
Students questioned by the
Ubyssey about their views on
the fraternities say they hope
the senate action will bring positive results and settle the question once and for all.
Ken Hodkinson, who graduated last year, said, "I was
quite cynical about this, but I
hope something comes from the
senate's action." When he was
seeking signatures for his petition last spring, he said he found
"many students were surprised
to learn that these fraternities
were still practicing racial discrimination on this campus."
Professor Carrothers said the
senate resolution instructed him
and Dean. McCrae to ascertain
whether the constitutions of the
Greek letter societies represented on this campus contain discriminatory clauses and/or whether the fraternities practice discrimination as a result of informal   understandings."
Professor Carrothers said that
he cannot release the text of the
letter sent to the fraternities or
of any replies received until he
has reported to the senate.

"We honor a great and good
man, one who has been taken
from us at the height of power
and influence.
"He gave more than he received and he has set a standard, albeit unconsciously, for
the rest of us to follow."
The man was Dr. Albert Edward Grauer, scholar, educator, businessman and friend to
thousands. Dead at 55, he had
been at the high point in a brilliant career.
Dr. Grauer was chancellor
of the University, with a year
and a half left to serve in his
second term. He was chief officer and chairman of the board
of the B.C. Power Corporation.
His life was learning.
*       *       *
His quest for knowledge
made him a high school graduate at 15, and a doctor of
philosophy in economics at 23.
His ability as an educator made
him the youngest full profes-1
sor in Canada at 31. His desire
to apply the theories he had
learned and taught made him
a businessman at 40.
When he became general
secretary of the B.C. Electric
15 years ago, he remarked: "I
wanted to test some classroom
ideas in a real business situation."
"Dal" Grauer was born in
January, 1906, one of nine children of Sea Island stockbreeder John Jacob Grauer. He attended King Edward high
school and graduated from the
University of B.C. (BA, first
class honors, economics) where
he    was    student    president,
Dr. A. E. (Dal) Grauer
Rhodes scholar and a member
of the lacrosse and basketball
*       *       *
He obtained his doctorate
from the University of California at Berkley and a BA in
jurisprudence from Oxford.
After articling with a Vancouver law firm and being called to the bar in 1930, Dr. Grauer went back to the academic
He joined the University of
Toronto as a lecturer in economics and in only seven years
was made full professor arid
head of the Social Science department.
While at the University of
Toronto, he served on a Bank
of Canada committee studying
the nation's taxation system.
He left the University to act as
expert adviser on labor legislation, public assistance and social insurance, housing and
public health, on the two-year
Rowell-Sirois Royal Commission on dominion-provincial relations.
* *       *
In 1955, he served as a member of the Gordon Royal Commission that investigated Canada's  economic prospects.
Dr. Grauer became general-
secretary of the BCE when the
company faced new regulatory
legislation with the establishment of t h e Public Utilities
He was responsible for the
company's giant post-war expansion program, modernization of the transit fleet, and
the switch from manufactured
gas to natural gas.
Between 1957 and the time
of his death Dr. Grauer was
again cast in the role of educator and gained distinction as
one of the finest Chancellors
the University has had.
During his chancellorship,
he worked for increased public
and private grants to the University, more scholarships and
incentives for bright students,
and greater respect from the
community as a whole for the
* *       *
He believed education is a
major weapon in the cold war
for the survival of the Western world, and called for higher
standards at Canadian institutions.
At the time of his selection
as chancellor, a newspaper editorial said:
"In Dr. Grauer, the scholar
and the industrialist are rarely
combined. He thus has a foot
in both camps and is peculiarly
well-equipped for the problems confronting today's university life. His election by acclamation is proof of this. The
University and province must
inevitably profit greatly by the
At the time of Dr. Grauer's
death, President Norman MacKenzie said:
"As a scholar, athlete, teacher and administrator, Dal Grauer was an adornment to this
University. We mourn the
death of a man who has enriched the life of the mind,
the body, the imagination and
world affairs."

five minutes left in the game.

er Kronquist and Mike Williams
and Ted Hunt and John Newton riddled the 'Bird secondary
with long gains.
All told, Grads gained 210
yards, most of them passing,
against the Gnuppers.
Cardmaster Puil dealt a few
off the bottom of the deck, and
'Birds were lost in the shuffle.
Grads gained first downs with
third-down passes from kick
formations, tackle-eligible plays
and rugby-style laterals.
They faltered only once in the
first half, when 'Birds Bill Vance
intercepted a pass on the Grad
20 and ran it to the three. They
got the ball back on the next
play as Roy Bianco fumbled the
handoff, but Gordie Olafson,
playing defensive end, nailed
Bruce Allardyce in the end zone
for a two-point safety.
Grads recovered quickly, and,
midway through the second
quarter, took the lead 6-2 on a
spectacular 82-yard pass, run,
and lateral- play. Quarterback
Roger Kronquist, who played as
good a game as he ever has at
UBC, passed to Mike Williams
for 15 yards.
Williams sucked three 'Birds
in, then lateralled to Ted Hunt,
who streaked the rest of the way
unmolested for the touchdown.
In the third quarter, Kronquist had Grads moving several
"I bet we only had the ball
five times in that third quarter,"
moaned Gnup. "They shouldn't
have completed five passes
against us."
Kronquist completed 13 of 24
passes, and enjoyed better protection than 'Birds Barry Cark-
ner got. Carkner kept UBC in
the game with some booming
punts, one that travelled 50
yards for a single late in t h e
Following the single, Carkner
engineered a 'Bird drive for the
winning touchdown.
Roy Bianco got the major, set
up by a 12-yard run by Dave
Lee. Dave Barker converted.   •

'Birds lucky
if win five
In this article, the first of a series, a representative of UBC
Thunderbirds' fans analyses the team's football fortunes.
In a dismal exhibition Saturday, this year's Varsity
football team showed beyond doubt that 1961 will be the
year of the big flop for UB'C football.
The team,, showing a re-
markable lack of imagination,
barely managed to squeeze
past a squad of wheezing old
grads led by the master of ineptitude himself, Herb Capozzi.
It was obvious, even to the
average fan, that this was a
team that is going nowhere.
They'll be lucky to win five
home games this year.
The team showed a definite
lack of good coaching, particularly on offence. There was
just no variety in the attack.
They either ran or they passed.
And, if they didn't do that,
they kicked.

Let's give up on Gnup.

time working.

We read where Ed Campbell, sports editor of the Charleston,
N.C., News and Courier who has been hung in effigy himself,
has formed a new group called the "I Was Hanged in Effigy
"There has been a crying need for such an organization for
a long time," says Ed. "For years, those of us hanged in effigy
4iave had to catch it in the neck. The organization will start
work immediately, lobbying for more loopholes, softer rope, and
better hanging conditions.
"The club will undoubtedly grow as people begin to get the
swing of it," he said.
j. It strikes me that such an organization would be of no use
on campus, mainly because no one ever gets up enough enthusiasm to lynch anybody. But a few good necktie parties at half
time at the football games might lure the more sadistic of our
undergraduates away from their TV sets ...

Arriving in the pre-dawn hours from the depths of darkest
Olot one morning last week, I noticed a small, plywood build-
iag going up south of the main stadium stand, just about where
the old hot dog stand used'to be. Well, I thought naively, they're
finally getting a new concession stand to replace that dilapidated,
tar-paper army hut, undoubtedly a World War I veteran, that
has served for untold years.
Now I find that new hot dog stand is really a glorified
garage for motorcycles. M-lot, I suppose they'll call it. First
they build parking lots in the Fraser River Model, then in the
torkey pens, and now in the stadium hot dog stands. Migawd,
Mr. Hughes.
And we're still left with that unsightly army hut, or whatever it is, for a concession stand. And we've got 300 or so
downtown people with season's tickets this year.
It's not the food, people, but please—can't we have a hot-dog
stand with a pedigree? Or at least a coat of paint?

Speaking of line-ups, I got trapped for something like five
rainutes in one Armoury queue, behind a sign that said "All
students must report here." Naturally, I was becoming accustomed to useless lineups, so I wasn't too put off when the man
at the end offered me a free A-card for $5. He sounded so convincing—saying how it was a $50 value for just five bills.

Rugby turnover
Laithwaite back at helm
Dr. Albert Laithwaite, after
a year's respite, is once again
the head rugby coach at UBC.
The chunky, bald - headed
mentor, who is also director
of the complsory P.E. program, coached the Thunderbirds from 1947 to the spring
of 1960, but was forced by his
doctors to resign his post.
*   *   *
He was succeeded by Dr.
Max Howell, who left last year
to direct a physical education
research program at the University of Alberta.
In his younger days, Laithewaite played wing three-
quarters and flyhalf for the
Lancashire   side   when   they

in 1937-38. He was a member
of the all-English side that
played New Zealand in 1946.
Howell's assistant last year,
Bob Morford, has been granted a leave of absence to the
University of  California.

Laithewaite will have two
new assistants. John Drink-
water, who played rugby at
Otago University in New Zealand, will help coach the Birds
while Eric Bannister of Manchester University will look
after the_Frosh.
Dr. Keith McDonald, a
Thunderbird from 1946-48,
has been approached to coach
the Braves.
-As last year, both Birds
and Braves will play in the
first division of the city league.   One physical  education
team will play in the upper
second division, and the other
P.E. team and the Frosh will
play in the lower second division.
"Rugby will have to be restricted because of the shortage
of fields," Laithewaite said.
"But we will try to give all
the boys who come out a
chance to play."
