How
Students must present AMS
card and sign Voter's List in
order to vote.
Preferential balloting will
be used. This means that
voters mark candidates 1, 2,
3, etc. in order of preference.
Ballots must be marked
clearly, or they will be considered spoiled and will not
be counted.
Each student must place his
own ballot in the box.
Why should you vote?
You should- vote in order to -
give a mandate to the candidate of your choice so that he
may carry out his tasks with .
the full confidence that he has
your support and the support
of the studenjt body.
You should vote so that the
privilege   of   choosing    those
who  will  govern you  is  not
removed.   Unused   privileges"
wither away. —Ed.

Student attacks Socreds
Campus unprotected
for minutes Friday
By GEORGE RAILTON
A student prank resulted in the University area and Endow
ment lands being without fire protection and life-saving equipment for a short time Friday .noon.
University  fire  officials  said
Mack "slanderous
By Sharon McKinnon
B.C. Mines Minister Kiernan said Friday that remarks
made by a student following
his speech Friday constituted
the most slanderous attack of
his career.
Kiernan made the state-
ment to SO students after a
member of the audience claimed the Social Credit government "was a group of ex-
convicts", who-were "stealing
BjC.'s natural resources",
Kiernan replied, "This is
the most slanderous attack
I have.ever heard".
The student had charged
that should a new government
come into power, a careful examination  of the records:
would send the present administration, including Kiernan, to jail convicted of fraud,
embezzlement and mis-appropriation of funds.
"I have had occasion to exchange a few words with one
of the Liberal members who
spoke at UBC. I have an apology from him, stating that his
statements were misconstrued.
To be misconstrued to this
extent, the statements must
have been irresponsible. However, I am prepared to give
the other fellow the benefit
of the doubt, said Kiernan.
"Just  because  there are
some rogues in the world I
am not prepared to treat
everyone as a rogue. Society
can only function on at basis of
mutual trust. That is all I
have to say in answer to your
question," he told the student.
"If we are to successfully
meet the problem of unemployment, we must develop
the resources we have," he
said, "It becomes idle chatter
when, while admitting the
necessity of these developments, tsomeone launches a
barrage of attack on the people supplying the capital.
Commenting on welfare
states, Kiernan said, "They
are not in the best interests of
the people because they suggest 'do as we, the government
tell you and we'll look after
_you*."
the area was without protection
after a milling group of students
let air out of the tires of the
campus fire truck and hid the
keys while it was parked in
front of Brock Hall.
The truck had been called out
to wash gasoline from the pavement after students left an old
car parked on East Mall as a
challenge to Buster's towing
trucks..
"Tampering with the equipment constitutes a serious offence, as this is our first-line
piece of equipment and carries
the only life saving equipment
we have," said Fire Chief For.
ran.
A captain on the scene commented "If there Is a fire, you
have no protection".
The captain said he was surprised at the action of the students because "this is the first
time I've seen them act up."
The RCMP officer on hand
said that if there was a fire
it was up to them (the fire department) "It is not our problem",  the officer said.
About 1500 students milled
around the old car during noon
hour Friday waiting for a Buster's truck to tow the car away.
Buster's did not respond, but
th^ fire department was forced
to attend when gasoline began
leaking from the tank of the
car.
Tom Hughes, head of B. and
G. stated: "If they, the students,
wanted to take the risk I assume
they know what they are
doing."
AMS President Dave Edgar
believed that it was a touch of
spring fever. Other councillors
agreed.
Hughes told the RCMP that
his department would handle
the disposal of the wreck. The
RCMP told a scavenger that he
could take it all if he wanted it.
At 5:35 p.m. under the cover
of darkness the B. and G. front
end loader put chains around
the remains and hauled it off to
the dump.
Students had one length of
hose strung between a lamp
standard and a tree. It was returned to the Fire Hallby Peter
Meekison   and   Ross  Craigie.
Former CGF member
charges Liberals
A former CCF Member of
UBC that the liberal Party is
Canada, beeause it knows the
exist along with it.
"It seems that the Liberal
party, like the weavers in Lan-
castershire in the early idustrial
revolution, is attempting to destroy the achievements of
modern technology," Colin
.Cameron told a student audience.
Cameron's charges followed
a proposal by Liberal leader
Lester B.  Pearson that auto-

mation be  curbed  to  preserve
jobs.
"It shows the Liberal party
knows that we cannot have the
advantages of automation and
retain the private enterprise
system, Cameron said. "So they
advocate retrogressive steps to
preserve. private enterprise, instead of meeting the challenge
and the opportunities presented
by modern technology." Page Two

We question
Academic Symposium committee has had several charges
laid against it in the past week.
; Sfrey have been accused of selecting students to attend
the symposium who haven't the proper qualifications.
*    "  They have been charged with sending too many  people
_3vho had attended in previous years.
' Tlhey were asked why they chose only 82 delegates when
it was understood that the budget allowed for 90.
i"*Fhey were He«used of showing favoritism in choosing delegates.
' The committee'4iad answers for most of the charges^ sand
fcey stand behind the record of having produced what is reportedly the *>est symposium in history.
This latter point does -not negate the charges, however. Let
us look at the answers.
"Lack of Salifications" is dismissed on the grounds that
it is necessary to- have proper representation of all faculties.
-No doubt this is true, but surely there are delegates available
-with the necessary qualifications.
Repeaters, according to the chairman, are asked back as
^discussion group leaders or as committee members. Twenty-six
•repeaters out of 82 delegates still seems rather unnecessary to
us, when so few students can attend.
In justifying the move of taking only 82 instead of 90, the
'committee asserts that it is attempting to cut back the number
'of students to please the faculty, who feel that too large a group
4s unwieldy If this is true, it is a shame, as it would surely be
desirable to include as many students as possible in the discussions.
The charge that some repeaters may be chosen by commit-
?tee "pull" is impossible to prove either way. It is a matter that
anust be left ,to rthe consciences of the committee members and
the delegates-by-patronage.
Future chairmen will have to ensure that the committee
:<takes a dispassionate and impersonal view of submitted applications if they wish to be free of the charge of having vested
interest in the selection of certain applicants.
We do not charge the committee wn;n evil intent; but we do
(question some of its policies.
Prank condemned
It is important that the men who protect our lives and
'property be respected.
Students Friday showed their lack of intelligence by hampering both police ad firemen in their attempts to perform their
duties.
A prank which was set up to lead Buildings and Grounds
•and Buster's into a trap failed. Instead, the University Fire
•Department was called and rushed to the scene only to suffer
-jeers from students.
* The fire truck called to the scene of the prank in front of
Brock Hall was the only ojie protecting the campus at the time.
It was carrying the only life saving equipment available in the
•whole University Endowment Lands area; No other organization has inhalator equipment.
The fire truck came to the scene of the prank to perform its
protective role. Its purpose was to wash gas from the road
because it constituted a fire hazard.
Students put the truck temporarily out of action when
they stole the keys and let the air out of the tires.
Tampering with fire fighting equipment is a criminal of-
Jense.
The RCMP constable who answered the call was ineffectual against the large number of students taking part in such
irresponsible acts.
There is every possibility that a life could have been lost
or property damaged as a result of these actions.
A prank is fun and often beneficial, but let's not tamper
with the machinery and men who are protecting our lives'and
property. -u»B:S.

Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I would like some information about Academic Symposium. How does one go about
being  one of the chosen few?
Do you have to have one
hundred dollars to join a Sorority or Fraternity to go to
'his Sarge carefully planned
bash? It seems strange to me
that there are so many students
going for their second and even
third year. Does one have to
have been to Academic Symposium in order to be eligible?
As one of my cohorts so aptly explained when I mentioned
the refusal of my perfectly
qualified application: Oh you
must be on bad terms with
Marnie Rogers (Co-chairman
of Academic Symposium Ed).
This seems to be the case.
Out of a campus of 11,500
students, 90 are able to go to
this conference; since at least
20 have been in previous years,
there are 70 students who benefit each year. This seems a
meagre few to spend $600 of
A.M.S. money on.
Rejected
BY DEREK ALLEN
Marx talks about the withering away of the state and as
things are going around UBC lately I am beginning to wonder
if it is not time for the AMS to wither away.
The post of AMS P^esiSent is supposed to be tihe apex
of status on campus and should be occupied by an outstanding
person. Far be it from me to depreciate any of this year's
four ambitious paragons, but they are the most disappointing
lot to come along in my short memory. This opinion seems to
be shared by students of much longer tenure and much greater
affinity for Blue-Blazer affairs than myself.
In fact things are so bad that the word in both sides of
the Brock coffee shop is that we will have a weak sister in the
walnut panelled office next year.
Brock inhabitants, who fancy themselves capable of forecasting the vote pretty accurately, tell me that their boy, with
his blue-blazer and council record, will take it easily. They
dismiss the 'party' candidate as a hopeless nonenity and look
contemptuously dowh their long noses at the tweedy Inter-
tional House female. The only competition seems to lie in the
Independent, who, they say, destroyed his chances by becoming an honorary Engineer at the General Meeting.
Then they thoughtfully contemplate the chances of becoming the power behind the throne when their dear little
friend assumes office.
This is a pretty sick attitude to be taken by the committee
people that run our student government, such as it is or may
become. I only hope that, whoever gets in, he fools the mob
and makes up his own mind. I'd like nothing better than to see
several of those calculating animals get neatly shafted and
chucked out of their cosy little offices. A breath of fresh air
invading: the Brock with the undergrad presidents could be
fanned into a healthy wind with a proper president to lead the
group. At any rate, Tuum Est.
The anonymous but wise contributor who has made it possible for UBC to have speakers of international stature visiting
this campus to speak deserves the warmest thanks of the
student body. Lester Pearson's speech was one of three, and
if the other two come up to the standard he has set they will
be well worth listening to. Incidentally the three speeches will
be gathered together and published under one cover by UBC.
History 101 students would be well advised to get it.
The freedom of academic symposium, where students and
faculty join in throwing rocks at the administration, allows
some very interesting and provocative suggestions to come
bouding forth. One prime example was a broad hint dropped
by a member of the English department that the students of
UBC should do as the students of the University of Oklahoma
did and have Saturday classes abolished. The instrument
suggested is that of the student strike, which was successfully
used at the American institution with the interesting result
that Saturday lectures were re-scheduled for weekdays. How
about it? "uesdoy/ February 7, \96\~

MARY BARKWORTH
As President of the AMS I
shall represent the student
body to the best of my ability.
In particular, I shall press for:
1. Better food and facilities
with the erection of permanent dining blocks at the camps.
2. A definite commitment on
catering for the student union
building so we can get on with
it. This building must include
a student-run bookstore for
new and second-hand books.
3. Removal of the Council
from control of any group or
>arty.
4. Swifter registration procedure by permitting registration by mail and starting earlier.
5. More aid for students who
cannot afford to continue their
education.
ALAN CORNWALL
The office of President in the
coming year, will require a
person with an intimate knowledge -of this university and a
wide background of experience
in AMIS affairs, in order to implement the revised student
government and help the university through a difficult
phase in student administration. Such experience has been
provided to me through my
past work with the undergraduate societies and presently in
the capacity of a student councillor.
Further, I propose to carry
the policy of representation
into all phases of student activity, in order to bring the
university closer to unity.
Remember. Experien ce
Speaks for Itself.
RAYMOND NOEL
I, Raymond Noel, pledge myself to:
(1) Initiate effective government through responsible leadership. The new system must
and will work.
(2) Hold a president's monthly open meeting, supplemented
by a president's report to Ubyssey.
(3) More clearly present, and
emphasize student views to
outside groups (Food Services,
NFCUS, Buildings & Grounds.
(4) Work with I nter-Resi-
dences Council to provide
more and better campus residences.
(5) Favour the maintenance
of the $10 building programme
allocation and employ it as an
investment fund until selection
of a suitable programme.
(6) Rapidly promote the Student Union Building or Winter
Sports Arena, or both, according to student's preferences.
For 2nd Vice-President
MARJORIE    GILBERT
Secretary
Our election platform, set out
below, seems to be what the
students of UBC want. Many
of our points have been adopted by other candidates. Making promises and implementing them are, however, two
different things.
A single individual on Council may find it impossible to
carry out his campaign pledges
if they conflict with the views
of other councillors. This will
be especially true next year
with an enlarged Students'
Council.
N.B.C. is running a full slate
of candidates who will, if they
are elected, toe in a position
tovcarry out their campaign
promises.
We wish to put an end to
"popularity poll,' elections and
present to the students vital
issues on which they may vote.
By electing Phil Brown, Byran
Belfont, and Marjorie Gilbart
on the first slate, you will be
expressing your views on what
action you wish Students'
Council to take next year.
We pledge if elected, to:
1. Oppose compulsory Physical Education.  ■.
2. Urge the abolition of Sales
Tax on text-books.
3. Improve Food Services, if
necessary by boycott.
4. Set up a student co-op for
sale of text-books.
5. Insist that any organization practicing racial discrimination either remove the offending clauses or disassociate
themselves from the univer-
versity.
6. Propose that students have
the right to recall.
7. Work for special student rate
on BCE buses,
8. Hold   monthly open    noon-
hour Council meetings.
9. Oppose fee hikes.
10. Keep our election promises.

PAT GLENN
Before any signifigant improvements can be made on
campus, public support must be
gained. The only way this can
be achieved is through effective PUBLIC RELATIONS, the
principle, task of the 2nd V.P.
To achieve this end I will:
1. Establish a Student Information Centre to co-ordinate
all campus publicity.
2. Work for an open-circuit
UBC radio station.
3. Continue to work for a TV
show emanating from UBC —
similar to that proposed in the
brief submitted to CHAN.
4. Establish permanent liaison officers beween UBC and
communicaion agencies.

PETER PENZ
The duties of the Second
Vice-President will include
public relations and helping to
co-ordinate AMS committees
and to shape AMS policy.
I shall establish good relations with press, radio, and tel-
vision, and use them to,
achieve some of the points of
my platform, e.g. no tax on
textbooks (see mimeographed
sheets on notice boards).
Furthermore, I shall devote
all my skill to making the AMS
function smoothly under the
new system.
The choice is yours.

Social Credit
The Social Credit Club on
this campus has tried to keep
the student informed of their
policies throughout the entire
year rather than waiting until
this last day before the elections.
With this intention we have
been pleased to present one cabinet minister on campus each
month to address the student
body and to answer your questions, as well as off-campus
functions at which students are
able to meet and talk informally
with c a b i net m i nisters and
MLA's.
Your Social Credit government has worked hard for the
people of the province of B.C.
and  in particular  for  the  stu-
In line with Social Credit's
dents on this campus. .
policy of incentives rather than
compulsion or government meddling, the B.C. government instituted a new and since copied
system of university financing
and student fee payments.
Not only were the fees of
one thousand students either
one-half or one-third paid under
the "money -for-marks" incentive system, but also a generous
amount" was given to the University itself for the purpose
of capital construction, at the
same time encouraging the citizens of the province to contribute to the University.
The recently concluded Chant
Royal Commission on Education
is conclusive evidence that the
Social Credit government is ser
iously interested also in basic
education as well as in higher
education.
And education is just one of
the fields in which your government has been constructively
active.
Many students are completely
unaware of the huge expansion
in such departments as health
services, welfare programs, mining, forestry, agriculture, and
labor.
Of course virtually all students are aware of the expansion of the highway system of
the province, especially the new
iast ferries to Victoria.
The Social Credit Club reminds you of these achievements and asks you to bring to
campus Model Parliament the
same progress and sound government by voting Social Credit
tomorrow.
Conservative
Our platform is concerned
with these two fundamental
questions:
How can we reduce or eliminate tension causing world distress?
How can we acheive domestic
freedom of opportunity without taking away political or economic freedom?
Some points:
• Foreign Policy . . . Find an
equitable solution to the disarm-
and press for resumption of Dis-
ament negotiations deadlock, and press ior resumption
of D i s a r mament Commission
talks aimed at a permament
suspension of both atmospheric
and underground testing, coupled with a program for general
disarmament and inspection . .
Continue to honour our international obligations and actively
oppose neutralism, participating
fully   in   NATO   and   NORAD.
• Domestic Policy . . . We
shall continue to e n c o u rage
through positive policies the development ot our natural resources always fostering individual initiative and enterprise.
We advocate a full measure of
tax concessions so as to provide incentive for secondary industry. We favour further aid
to Canadian investors through
the development of the North —
long-term low interest loans in
our last frontier.
• Trade . . . Exploit every
opportunity for markets abroad
giving greater flexibility to the
Canadian Economy . . . Set up a
large scale information service
in conjunction with the Trade
Commission Service which
would allow foreign buyers to
know the nature of Canadian
goods and inform Canadian
domestic consumers of the advantages of purchasing Canadian products.
• Education . . . Tax exemption for students during summer
employment and discontinue student unemployment insurance
payments. Continuation of expansion of grants to universities
and the encouragement for private contributions to academic
institutions. Accelerate the student exchange program particularly with underdeveloped
countries in Africa and Asia.
Health . . . Implementation
of a national medical health
scheme with a minimum of
bureaucratic control, aimed at
equating opportunity for medical services across Canada.

Liberal Party Clubs in 13 of
the 16 Canadian University
Model Parliaments elected so far
in this school year have formed
governments, and UBC Liberals
want you to help them complete
this trend here.
Vote Liberal and you vote
for a party revitalized by the
dynamic leadership of Lester B.
Pearson, soundly supported by
the experts who met at Kingston last year to map overall
party principles and strategy,
the grassroots as shown by the
and democratically oriented to
National Rally of January.
LIBERALS   PROGRESSIVE
It was this last element that
really expressed the youth
movement in Canadian liberalism. University delegates—UBC
had six of them — made sure
their voices were heard and
forced the party to commit itself
to progressive measures in education and foreign affairs.-
Liberalism is a fighting faith,
not a static creed. It believes
that man is partly competitive
and partly co-operative, not
completely one or the other as
our Tory and Socialist friends
would have you believe.
Vote for a Liberal Model Parliament, vote for:
• A scholarship and bursary
program based on merit and
cation for qualified.
• Canada wiil not accept,
use or m a n u f acture nuclear
arms. If nuclear arms must be

CCF
Why?
Why bother voting for a Model Parliament? Why waste time
and money on a "parliament
that can pass no laws?
Why continue the existence
of a "parliament" which, for the
last few years, has been no more
than a playpen for junior politicians?
There can only foe one reason.
Model parliament could be one
way through which the University could give the social leadership which the community has
rightfully demanded but failed
to receive. Model parliament
can and must be a testing ground
lor new ideas.
Let us be honest and face, the
fact that Model Parliament has
failed to give this leadership.
Instead, Model Parliament has
been dull, boring, and insignificant.
The UBC CCF Club believes
that the time has come * for a
fundamental shake-up of Model
Parliament.
The University is the place for
new ideas. The CCF has these
ideas. The CCF is ready to take
on the responsibility of leadership.
The CCF will bring up for
discussion in Model Parliament
bills providing for a foreign policy based on neither old-style
militarism nor isolationism, but
on internationalism, on a program of positive commitment to
peace through the United Nations and nuciear disarmament.
The CCF will propose in Model
Parliament an enquiry into the
best ways of economics planning. We will draft a national
health plan.
Both the Tories and the Liberals have had their chance, and
both have failed. The time has
come to give the CCF a chance
Most students have also seen
to prove their worth.

Communist
In 1950 the Canadian Communist Party attempted to point
out the necessity of Canada freeing herself from U.S. economic
and political domination by raising the slogan of Canadian independence.
In the 1957 election campaign
John Diefenbaker took up the
slogan "Canadian Independence"
saying Canada will not be a
land of "hewers of wood and
drawers of water."
Well, Mr. Diefenbaker has
been in power since 1957—what
has been done to change the former Liberal policy of selling the
interests of the Canadian people
down the river—in short, nothing whatsoever, the old policies
have been continued.
The recently signed Columbia
Treaty makes Canada not a
drawer but a stoker of water
for U.S. power plants.
Our foreign policy still comes
by direct line from Washington
—when Washington coughs John
sneezes.
THE TIME HAS COME FOR
A REAL CHANGE.
The Communist Party re-asserts its view that it is time for
Canada to stand on her own
feet.
The time has come for Canada to disassociate itself from
U.S. foreign policy, adopt a policy of neutrality, withdraw from
NATO and NORAD, allow no
nuclear arms on Canadian soil.

THE CCF CLUB's mobile fallout shelter was paraded around camp and housed four occupants
overnight in Buchanan Plaza Monday night. The Stunt was a promotion scheme for Model
Parliament elections tomorrow.
Mobile bomb shelter a bomb'
find one-night hibernators
By SHARON McKINNON
The world's first mobile
bomb shelter, "the commuter's specialty", erected and
occupied by members of the
UBC CCF Club, spent Sunday
night in the Buchannan Plaza.
"It wasn't a comfortable
experience. The roof leaked,
and the sleeping bags and
mattresses got wet. Somebody
snored and one of the girls
giggled all night. A group of
inebriates, swimming in the
Buchanan pool disturbed the
peaceful night air", related
one   of the   occupants.
Slightly crowded quarters
had an interesting psychological result—by morning everyone hated everyone else. The
group concluded you must be
careful who you are with
when the bombs come.
Morning brought more
problems, namely Mr. Hughes
and his cohorts. There are no
parking permits available for
mobile bomb shelters.
The club feels that if you
need a shelter in your back
yard, you need one behind
your car too. If the city were
"scientifically destroyed," this
five ton brick structure behind your car would protect
you.
Car manufacturers will
probably be the first to sell
mobile shelters as a necessary
accessory for every car, and
cement  companies  w i 11  un-
The purpose of Hie stunt
doubtedly endorse the idea of
two shelters in every garage,
was to point out the futility
of depending on bomb shelters to protect the population
from nuclear bombing.
The shelter, a c o n v e rted
trailer, covered with tar
paper, was decorated with
signs such as "they laughed
at the M a g i n o t Line" and
"every commuter should have
one".
Four contemplate
communicative art
By SANDRA SCOTT~
Members of a symposium to
discuss "Are the Arts Communicating Today?" were able to only
skim the subject Monday noon in
the Auditorium.
The meeting was the first
event of the Festival of the Contemporary Arts.
Panelists included Prof. John

Southern California, Kenneth

of the Board of Governors, student representative Michael Sin-
Residents refused
recreation refuge
Students' Council decided on
Monday night not to open the
games room in Brock for inter-
residence Sunday afternoon activities.
Inter-residence Council had
made the request on the grounds
that recreation facilities in the
residences were inadequate.
Students' Council refused to
grant the request because it felt
students in residence had no
more right to exclusive use*of.
the games room than commuter
students did.
clair, Dr. Earle Birney of the
Department of English and Ned
Pratt, UBC architect.
Dean Geoffrey Andrew chaired the meeting.
Prof. Crown stated that patronage in the past involved aristocrats who knew a great deal of
art they were sponsoring. Today
there js a danger to cater to numbers and not to quality.
"We're condemned if we
worry about the masses," he declared.
Pratt commented that an enlightened public is necessary for
the arts to. communicate, while
Sinclair believed that the public
is not sufficiently educated to
understand the arts.
Later, Sinclair stated that the
artist is looking for an intellectual rather than emotional appreciation and understanding;
"The intellectual content of
poetry is continually hv dispute.
We cannot say what Shakespeare
intended to communicate about
Hamlet," mused Dr. Birney.
Today at noon the Festival of
the Contemporary Arts' will
sponsor a piano recital in the
Brock Lounge, a jazz concert in
the. Auditorium, poetry reading
in Buchanan 106 and an exhibition of painting in the Art Gallery.

UBC blind students
lead typical life
Through the aid of tapes, typing and readers five blind
UBC students lead the same kind of life as any typical university student. ~
The five are Lois Goodine, a
first year music student; Jerry
Dirks, a Third year Arts student
majoring in International Studies and Political Science; Agriculture student Peter Claxton;
Helen McLean, a Third year
Arts student; and Third year
Commerce student, Max Monday.
The    problems    which     one-
would expect these students to
have are relatively easily overcome.
Exams are typed—with someone there to read the questions.
Lecture notes can be taken just
as fast in brail as by writing.
Tapes are only needed for
such courses as English when
the material must be repeated
many  times.
This week (February 5-11) is
White Cane Week. The slogan
for the week, put forward by
the Canadian National Institute
for the Blind, is: "Share your
sight with the Sightless."
UBC students can do just this.
By having consideration for the
blind on campus, they can make
their contribution to White Cane
Week.
One of the most difficult
problems for the five to overcome is that of getting around
our large and obstacle-studded
campus.
Jerry Dirks assured The Ubyssey that there was no lack of
cooperation on campus. His only
complaint was with Buildings
and Grounds. He doesn't like
the pool in Buchanan courtyard.
Most of these students adjust
to campus with the help of their
friends. The Delta Gamma sorority aids them by reading to
each of them for five hours a
week and helping the' new students who find it hard to get
around.
The sorority is now working
on a relief map of the university
for future students.
The new CNIB service, centre, at 350 East 36th Ave., has
invited the public to see the rehabilitation, recreation, occupational and prevention-of-blind-
ness programs. The centre will
be open from 7:30 to 9:30.
Petty thieves profit
during Friday's prank
While students gathered to
watch the prank in front of
Brock Friday noon a thief used
the opportunity to remove books
from the Library.
Greg Lindsay, Arts 1 reported his brief case was stolen from
the New Wing exit. It was returned later minus his slide rule
and math text.
The local RCMP report that
the small theffc slluation has
been good this year.
Last fall several radios were
taken from a lot, and a ski outfit was taken last week.
Vancouver police to summons UBC
student utter raid on Frosh dance
Vancouver Police said today they will summons one
UBC student following a raid on the Marco Polo Saturday
night.
At 1:30 a.m. six uniformed officers and two detectives
crashed the" Frosh Stardust Ball. Dodging flying plates of
egg foo yung, they moved from group to group, shined
flashlights under the tables and recorded an indeterminable
number of names in little black notebooks.
Students hear AMS
first slate candidates
About 100 students heard the
eight first slate candidates in the
AMS elections outline their platforms Monday at noon.
Mary Barkworth, first presidential candidate to speak, outlined her platform as presented
on page 3.
NBC candidate Phil Brown
stressed the need for a "sense of
direction in student government" and said that the NBC
candidates   could   provide   this.
Al Cornwall, First Member on
Council this year, stressed the
relationship between the undergraduate societies and the Student Council under the new student government system.
He said that as Agriculture
Undergrad Society President,
and as a Councillor, he had valuable experience in both fields.
Ray Noel, final speaker, said
that he planned to give strong
leadership. He too stressed his
experience, both here and at the
University of Montreal.
The four candidates for secret
tary, Marjorie Gilbart (NBC),
Georgia Harris; Lynn McDonald
and Marg Richards, and the candidates for Second Vice-President, Byran Belfont (NBC), Pat
Glenn, and Peter Penz also spoke
at the meeting.
Candidates also spoke in the
dormitories   Monday   night.
From page 4:
Communists
nuclear arms on Canadian soil.
It is time Canada recognized
the People's Republic of China
for the sake of international
peace and for our own trade.
It is time Canada took measures to prevent the flow of raw
or semi-processed materials over
her borders and started encouraging the development of secondary industries to process and
manufacture her own resources
to give employment to Canadians.
More and more Canadians of
all political belief are seeing the
wisdom of Canada adopting policies of Independence, Neutrality and Disarmament. -

to pair of narrow wins
By PETE GELIN
UBC Thunderbirds won their second consecutive WCIAU
basketball title by tripping past University of Saskatchewan
Huskies 69-56 here Saturday night. It was the 'Birds eighth
straight league win putting them out of reach of second-place
Manitoba Bisons.
The previous night the 'Birds
had downed the visitors by a
61-49 score.
Despite their two defeats, the
Huskies made a better showing
than expected. Lack of height
clearly hampered the Huskies
as they were unable to muster
any rebound  strength.
LOW SCORING
In the Friday night tilt, poor
inside shooting slowed the 'Bird
attack and by quarter time they
had built up a small 12-7 advantage. A combination of close
checking by the Huskies and
loose ball handling on the part
of the 'Birds kept the game at
a slow pace. By half time UBC
led 31-14.
The underdog "Dogs" came
back in grand style after the
half. By worming th;eir way
through the UBC defences ahd
working well oti the screen
shot, the Huskies outscored the
bigger 'Birds 35-30. This wasn't
enough, however, as the 'Birds
racked up their seventh leagtfe
win.
LITTLE IMPROVEMENT
Saturday night saw little improvement in both squads. At
the ten minute mark, the 'Birds
had taken a five point lead. The
visitors kept the pressure on
however, and at half time 'Birds
led 38-32.
The  second, half was  practi
cally the same story as the two
traded basket for basket and
mistake for mistake.
Leading the 'Birds in the
point department both nights
was center Wayne Osborne. He
hit for 13 points Friday and 24
the following night.
Also turning in steady performances for UBC were Dave
Way with a weekend total of 20,
and Ken Winslade with 25.
UBC Braves added two more
wins to their record over the
Weekend, defeating Queen Elizabeth High 74-70 and Magee
High 72-61.
Friday, Braves built up a 20:8
first-quarter lead but sloppy
second-half play and the loss
on fouls of their two tallest men
almost lost them the game. QE
closed the gap steadily but time
ran out on them. Top scorers
for UBC were Ron Parker with
21 points and Brian Adams and
Jim Jamieson with 14 apiece.
BEAT MAGEE
Saturday, a disorganized
Brave team managed to overcome a strong Magee unit. Trailing by 9 points at quarter-time,
UBC tied it up 29-29 a the half.
They hit more consistently in
the second half to wrap it up.
John Cook and Ron Parker led
Braves with 14 points apiece.
J.O.'s defeated Labs 63-59 Friday, Ed Terris getting 17 points.

T" V •*"
Instant thoughts on UBC Basketball (just add money and
stir): Why do the preliminary games start at the ridiculous hour
of 6:15 when the main game doesn't begin until 8:30? The first
game, is always over by 7:30, leaving what fans there are present
to sit on their hands for an hour. The 'Bird players don't even
get there until quarter to eight.
This method of spectator discouragement, which seems
quite popular at UBC, deprives both games of possible fans.
.Now,.the only ones: who watch the Jayvees and Braves play are
vreferees and their mothers (see above).

Frosh vigilantes
baptise Engineer
By CHRIS FAHRNI
The UBC Frosh Vigilante
Committee reacted against the
Engineers' oppression of the
Frosh when they - dunked an
unidentified Engineer in the
Buchanan   pool   Monday   noon.
Due to a lack of available
Engineers, the Vigilantes were
forced to wait almost an hour
before the seizure took place.
But the tenacity of the clandestine group won out as at last
a redshirt was spotted coming
up from Fort Camp.
The capture was swift and
sudden. The victim offered a
surprising struggle, but his
friend did nothing.
A spokesman for the Vigilantes said, "The Engineers can
expect to be assaulted at any
hour, any day. We don't keep
office hours.  And  for every
Frosh dunked, we plan to dunk
two   redshirts."
Scholarships

capital grants to 18 university
building funds.
UBC is one of the 21 universities included in the program.
Along with the revisions in
the amount of scholarships,
Union Carbide has also broadened the eligibility requirements

Perrault fights
for special grant
By COLEMAN ROMALIS
"We are going to fight in the Legislature this session for a
special loan grant for university students who are unable to get
work this summer," Ray Perrault told an audience in Brock
Lounge noon Friday.
"We think that things are going to be tough this summer,"
the B.C. Liberal leader said.
Perrault announced that he
had some news — "There are
still four Liberals in the
legislature," he said, referring to fellow Liberal MLA Gordon Gibson's present political
problems.
(Perrault later told the Ubyssey, "Let me say this — that
speech was made by Mr. Gibson.
I was in Eastern Canada at the
t|me. I^don't know if his charges
sFere well-based or not. I'm
waiting eagerly for his speech in
the House on Tuesday.")
Turning to the problem of unemployment, Perrault said that
the Throne Speech was written
by "a very tired Government, a
Government on the defensive."
"We have to face facsts,that
work for our unemployed is of
more importance than, the Government "pie - in - the - sky
schemes," he said;
Perrault said that the most
work done on the Pacific Northern Railway was by the Premier, who took a power saw and
knocked down a pine tree.
"We have to get moving with
some of our own make - work
programs in British Columbia.
Ottawa doesn't appreciate the
problems of British Columbia
sufficiently well," he said.
Perrault said that the Liberals
are fighting for establishment of
an agency for consumer affairs,
and estimated that B.C. could
save up to $600,000 in the first
year alone, by investigating
fraudulent practices.
Perrault devoted the last part
*of his address to a discussion of
the integrity and responsibility
of government.
"There has never been a more
vital time for you to go into
politics. This is all-important as
far as Canada is concerned." He
he said.
He referred to Highways Min
ister Gaglardi's now famous
statement that the Opposition
were just bugs who would be exterminated in the election, and
said that remarks such as this
bring discredit to the legislature.
"There are many people in
B.C. today who are afraid of
what Gordon Gibson is going to
say in the House. It's this strange
double standard" he said.
"They use one Standard for
Cabinet Ministers and one for
the rest of the people in B.C."
Perrault concluded by outlining a platform for responsible
citizens. This included keeping'
aware of current events, and
taking an interest and active
part in politics.
