 urges
vote
Fellow Students:
■ Today we are voting on an
important building referen-
dum. The details of the proposal have been outlined in T3ie
Ubyssey and at the General
Meeting and I don't propose
to repeat them here. There are,
however, two paints I would
like to present to you and of
which I feel you should be
aware when voting.
The first is directed to those
who   are   unaware   of   exactlv
why a "package" is being presented, rather than a choice
between a Winter Sports Centre or a Student Union Building. The main reasons that
lead council to its conclusion
may be stated simply.
The package proposal reasonably satisfies the two legitimate building needs of the
Alma Mater Society. The package proposal has attracted financial support from the Administration. The package pro
posal has a chance of overcoming the rigid constitutional
barrer of a two-thrds approval.
A split proposal, a choice of
either a Winter Sports Centre
or a Student Union Building,
would have one legitimate
building need- completely unsatisfied.
A split proposal would not
necessarily receive financial assistance from the Administration. But the most unfortunate
characteristic   of   a   split   pro
posal is a result of the constitutional need of any one proposal receiving two-thirds of
the vote in its favor.
It is doubtful that at this
time two-thirds of the voting
students would support one
project or the other. It is felt
that the vote would be about
equally divided between the
Student Union Building and
the Winter Sports Centre and
such a split would necessarily
cause both to fall.
For these reasons, among
others, the Council feels the
package proposal to be the
only fair test of whether or
not the students wish to continue their tradition of contributing to the physical development of our unversity.
The second point I would
like to make is this:

Vol. XLIV.
VANCOUVER,   B.C.,   FRIDAY,  MARCH   17,   1961
No. 62
General   meeting   tanked
f
A 23-ton Sherman tank, a
jeep and some 50 uniformed
members of the Intellectual
Stunt Commitee stormed the
General Meeting yesterday to
the tune of the Colonel Bogey
March.
Held as political prisoners by
the revolutionary squad of "Operation Fuda," were AMS President Dave Edgar, and incoming President, Al Cornwall. Ac-
companing them was AMS Business Manager Ron Pearson, who
'protected the distinguished
couple from the more violent
members of the revolutionaires.
LIBERATION
Members of the revolutionary
movement proclaimed the liber-
tion of campus from the present |
administration  and   lauded   the |
establishment of a reign of chas-,
tity.
The first order of the day,
read by the Generalissimo of
Revolutionary Forces. "Fatty"
Truswgll, set political prisoner
Edgar and Cornwall free, provided that they establish the new
order, based on chastity and virtue.
RETREAT
A near clash with paint-thro w-
; ing ^Engineers was averted when
Red shirts, who attempted to
block the Sherman tank's progress, beat a hasty retreat as
the  tank  bore down  on  them.
Purpose of the stunt was to
publicize the General meeting.
The revolutionary forces marched around the main malls with
the prisoners previous to going
into the Armoury. A campaign
of Black Hands with thumbs
down caused some bewilderment among students^ prior to
the  revolution.

INTELLECTUAL   STUNT   COMMITTEE   commandeered above tank for its invasion of Thursday's

Summer unemploym
for many university
By   DIANE   O'GREENALL
Students should not rely too
much on the Personnel Office
for summer employment, employment assistant Richard
Speed said yesterday in an interview with  the Ubyssey.
"The Personnel Office will
not be able to contact everyone
who registers for employment,"
said   Speed,   "Last   year   an   es-
EDGAR  FIRST
timated 1,500 summer jobs were
found for the 2,500 who registered."
Speed warned that jobs are
difficult to get this year and
that students should do a lot
of canvassing on their own.
Students should look in their
home areas since better paying
jobs are usually found there
and) chances for employment
are better if the employer knows
you.
For job hunting, Speed advised careful planning. To aid students the Personnel Office has
a pamphlet listing companies
in certain fields.
The listings do not necessarily
indicate that jobs are available.
They are only for reference.
Students who . filled out employment cards last week should
now go to the Personnel Office
make sure their card is properly
to confirm their interest and
filled, thus making their application   active.
Students should then drop in
once a week and check with
the office and on the notice
board.
entahead
students
The names on file go to employers who contact the office.
The Personnel Office has sent
letters to about 500 firms urging
them to consider University
students for summer employment. They have also contacted
the Alumni Association and put
a notice in the Alumni Bulletin
urging support for summer employment.

Students Thursday defeated
a council resolution calling for
a reduction in the World University Service grant.
The defeat of, the resolution
and a heated but inconclusive
debate on the "package deal",
for the building of a sports
arena and students' union building were the highlights of the
annual general meeting.
RESOLUTION  DEFEATED
The defeated resolution called
for a reduction of the "non-discretionary grant," which the
AMS pays to the WUSC, to 55
cents from $1 per student. The
building referendum was put
before the students today.
A motion on "the revised
Crawford report" on discipline
was carried by a good majority. The import provides for the
establishment of the post of "Assistant Prosecutor" in the Student court.
ACCIDENT FUND CUT
The accident fund was cut
down from 60 cents to 40 cents
per student. Russ Robinson,
AMS treasurer said that the
previous contribution was too
high.
The women's athletic association received an increase of 15
cents per student in their budget.
The "Brock Art Fund" was
given a fixed grant of $1500, instead of a grant of $1 per student head.
The meeting ended in confusion as Dave Edgar, outgoing
AMS president, was introducing
the new executive. Engineers
dunked many of the council
members and innocent bystanders.

Now or never
Why should you vote for the "package" in the referendum
today?
There are several excellent reasons for doing so.
First, you should vote for the project because it may very
Well be a now or never proposition.
The administration has the money ($500,000) to contribute
to the project now.
There is only one suitable piece of property not already
assigned—and this is being avidly sought after by several expanding faculties.
Should the project be delayed by a "no" vote today: 1. we'd
probably lose "D" lot; 2. we would forfeit a very favorable deal
from the administration—a deal that might never again be
available.
Second, you vote for the project because there is a demonstrable need for both structures. Anyone who has attended
a large dance in the Armoury will readily admit that it is a
poor spot for such functions. The new union building will provide an excellent dancing area.
Most of us have run into trouble at one time or another
toying to find a place to eat lunch. Plans call for adequate eating facilities in the new building.
Brock Lounge is a poor place for speakers and other events.
In fact, it is useful only for banquets. Plans for the new building provide for an auditorium for such functions.
Brock is also poor in lounges. We need lounges—not caverns like Brock Lounge—but small lounges designed for relaxa-
tion^-perhaps with magazines and records provided.
This new structure provides all the facilities the present
Brock; lacks. What's more it provides them in an area easily
accessible to the whole campus.
Atoi still further, it provides a base for the erection of a
complete student union building when the Brock becomes antiquated, as it surely will be in the not too distant future.
We have a responsibiliy to provide foundations for future
generations to build on.
As for the ice arena, what more appropriate recreation
facility could the students of a winter session university build?
Recreational facilities are pitifully lacking on this campus.
.Skating and curling are stellar recreational activities (not to
mention broomball). Besides, hockey is a top spectator sport—
and What's more it's Canada's national sport.
Total cost for winter sports arena and student recreation building will be $1.3 million. Students will contribute only
$750,000.
We urge you to vote yes in today's referendum.
Show that you recognize the needs of this campus.
Show that you have, faith in your elected representatives.
Recognize the three years work tha have gone ino this project.
Realize that the Stuetent Council has" fought and won in
manjs; |megotiation battles with the administration to get
the i&&$0aQi&concessions they have obtained: a contribution
ojE $50#>8©; guarantee of an AMS loan, possibly at a preferred
interest *ste; a ehoiee piece of property, sought after by several
ofl^er, university organizations; representation to the extent of
half on the board of management for the proposed sports arena.
Recognize a good deal when you see one.
Vote YES.

Letters to the Editor
Just An Excuse
The Editor,
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
Certain Iraiernity men, when
asked about discriminatory
clauses in their fraternity constitutions say that their chapters are against discrimination
but that they must remain in
the international organization
and "fight from within", and
this excuse has been peddled
on this campus from as far
back as I can remember.
But just what does this statement mean in the context of
the present situation? Only
seven out of one hundred
^eighty chapters and alumni
groups, it would seem, have
given even, moral support to
the Stanford ATO which admitted four Jews and was ejected from the ATO international
for violating the racial bar in
the constitution (Ubyssey—10
March 1961).
The racial bar will stay in
as long as anti-Negro, anti-
Oriental and anti-semetic feeling is fairly strong in many
South and many fraternities
quarters such as the American
will continue to say "We'll stay
and fight from within."
This can be taken to mean,
We'll acpept the discriminatory
status quo (since there is little
likelihood of change) but we'll
make a token show to please
, the people back home."
If the UBC-ATO had any
gumption or believed strongly
enough in racial equality, they
would start a movement among
like-minded chapters and withdraw in protest, en masse, from
the ATO international and establish a rival but equalitarian
international and thereby
make it easier for other ATO
chapters to make a definite
choice between the  two  sids.
But I suppose that I am being
too idealistic. Realistic people
would realize that these things
take time and that ideals must
be sacrificed for group solidarity and the fine fraternity tradition. After all, everyone
knows that belonging to a fraternity international is more
important than a few democratic principles -— except maybe
those boys at Stanford.
Yours   truly,
— STANLEY T. FUKAWA,

Editorial Freedom?
Editor,
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
Last week I had an opinion,
It was not based on facts;
No rational Standpoint took I
Or other related acts.
Neither scientific method
Nor research unbaised soon
Could give me a conclusion
Oh! God save me from
ruin.
Plague and folly are upon
us. The gods of Laboratory and
Syllogism have hurled down
their wrath upon that satanic
institution, prejudice.
In his letter bf March 10, Mr.
Robin Lyons has castigated The
Ubyssey and a member of its
staff for taking a policy and
giving opinions which were
not previously substantiated
from a "Rational and Scientific, that is, unprejudice stand
point.". This test tube baby
conditioned by "advances" of
the past three hundred years,
thinks all criticism should be
"founded by research and
facts."
Well I say hogwash, balderdash and chicken fat. How ean
the real value of editorials and
opinion columns, that is, to
provoke thought and discussion, be achieved without prejudice.
Even if you don't accept this
there is nothing wrong with
prejudice. Why be stifled by
the rigours of rational, scientific, unprejudiced analysis? Why
not just say what you think
and damn those who ask facts.
I am prejudiced and I'm
proud of it: I hate nationalism
and I hate Republicans. I detest
the vile stench that issues from
our Social Credit government
and I wouldn't degrade myself
to spit across the street at a
cabinet minister.
I await an unprejudiced reply.
Biasedly yours,

Garibaldi Model
Editor
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
The "Open House" edition
The Ubyssey having accidently
come to my notice I would like4
to congratulate the members
of V.O.C. in the forehandedness
in preparing a relief map of
Garibaldi.
In view of the possibility of
securing the Olympic Games I
feel that this relief model
should be on exhibition in the
Tourist Bureau as it would be
of immense value in discussing
possibilities of development.
lYours   truly,

Bowen Island, B.C.
It's money, fellows
"The council is trying to pull a fast one."
So hollered one of the mock politicians at Thursday's
general meeting.
Other speakers followed suit.
And most people swallowed it.
Why?
Student council is a body of elected representatives—representing the whole of UBC's population. They are not trying
to 'shaft' the students. They would gain nothing by doing so.
The Council is elected in the interests of efficiency.
Twelve thousand students in open debate could never arrive at
a sane, satisfactory solution to any problem.
A relatively small group of informed individuals can better investigate and evaluate a situation.
The council has come to a unanimous decision. This decision was not easily arrived at. Three years of negotiations
and six months of discussions were necessary to solve the
problems. During this time every student had the opportunity
too sit in on these meetings. Few did.
Now the council puts forth its 'package deal' and asks
you to accept it.
It's not a bad deal. The cost to the students for both projects is $750,000. Should the referendum be defeated and the
administration withdraw their financial support, the Union
Building alone could cost us more than $800,000.
That's an obvious saving of $50,000—and we get both
buildings.
Perhaps the student contribution towards this project
can be added to the development fund. This would mean th^t
the government would match the students dollar for dollar,
The University would obtain $750,000.
Regardless of which building you feel best satisfies the
need of the students, it is financially advantageous to vote
for the package.
It's really a matter of dollars and cents fellows.
And it may be now or never. —R.M.
From Daae 1
Edgar says:
on various building proposals
since September, after numerous meetings between representatives of the Council and the
Administration, after conferences with the architects, after
special Student Council meetings and .extended regular
meetings and after much early
division of opinion, the unanimous conclusion of every member of the Student Council is
that the building proposal being offered today is the best
possible proposal than can be
placed before the students of
this  university.
If all members of the Alma
Mater Society could have had
the opportunity of joining with
the members of the Council in
their debates, discussions and
considerations of the buildihg
proposals, and if all members
of the Alma Mater Society
could be as clear and cognizant of the circumstances surrounding this issue as are the
members of my Student CoBin-
cil, then there wouldt toe ho
doubt in my mind that the
building referendum would 4°"
day be unanimously endorsed.

This week I "have two nominations for the Completely
Useless Party as we missed
last week.
The nominations are people
who gleefully tell me early
Monday morning that the
exam schedule is posted and
people who call stealing,
souvenir hunting.

Queen's University students
are tired of pushing beds for
new records. They are trying
something else.
Two Queen's men claim a
new record by drinking 20
bottles of hard liquor in 36
hours.
The bout over, a new record
had been established; not the
20 Bottles, not the 36 hours,
but a two-and-a-half-day hangover. A challenge to other
universities has been issued to
equal this mark.
I'd like to try but I couldn't
afford it.

The girls back east have
done it again. Over 75 McGill
University co-eds were out
shining the shoes of the glorious males. They even took
shoe-shining lessons from a
prominent shoe shine eem-
pany.
The girls were out taking
care of their oWn. They were
raising $350 to provide a
scholarship for some lucky
co-ed.
UBC co-eds should think of
something  better   than   shining shoes. Well girls?

Only two students turned
out to debate at the University of Saskatchewan. Ray
Mack, Debating Directorate
president blamed that nasty
old apathy.
The way I see it their are
two solutions to their problem. Eitheii-CUP can start a

should pick interesting topics
like UBC does.

The Carleton, Carleton
undergraduate newspaper, has
finally found out what is the
matter  with   co-eds.
They don't think!
The reasons are such
"younger" co-eds attempts to
deny sexual attraction unlike
the mature girl who draws a
flexible line up to which she
enjoys a sexual attraction.
She equates love with marriage. When she meets her
first attractive man she hears
wedding bells. The man is too
busy explaining that he still
has years of college ahead of
him and no intention whatever of marrying for a good
long time. He then tends to
steer away from sweet young
things in the future.
The article goes on to condemn the shallow level oi the
co-eds conversation. They
think of clothes, movies, and
movie stars instead of art,
absolute morality, government,  and  literature.
The article ends with an
emphatic demand for co-eds to\
THINK.
I'm sure most of the UBC
males Would prefer they
didn't THINK.

Typical of the articles which
are appearing is the one in
the McGill Daily which announces professors must satisfy a 65 % requirement on an
exam set by high school students before they will be allowed to lecture.
A professor who does not
write an examination may, if
he wishes, submit a 20,000
word essay on "Why I Want
To Teach".
Commenting on the innovation, one professor suggested
a bilateral disarmament treaty
may be established. "By establishing exams for professors^ students can barter^,',  <
Another, professor said, .'T
think some of my "colleagues

Idea for the examination

Exchange students
lack information
LONDON (CUP)—A number of overseas students studying in Canada attacked the Department of Citizenship and
immigration Saturday for its lack of help before or after.their
arrival here.
The complaints were made
during the Ontario - Quebec
WUSC regional seminar on the
problems of overseas students
in Canada.
One of the main issues was
summer employment, which is
forbidden to these students by
law; although government officials often turn their heads the
other   way.
John Manion of the department explained that the regulations state that a student may
take a job only if it is directly
connected with his line of study,
and if there is no Canadian to
fill the job. He added that difficulties have arisen of the present employment crisis.
The students also felt that information supplied to them before they arrived was inadequate. They claimed it was difficult to obtain information about
the universities in the country",
basic information about the
country itself other than geographies and statistical analyses, and many small bits of information such as what type
of clothing to bring, and how
bus stops are designated.
Upon arrival, the problems
were reception and orientation.
Often students were not met
at airports and other places, and
no attempt was made to see that
they know what to do and where
to   go.
"Present    arrangements    for
the reception and welfare of.
overseas students in Canada are -
regrettably poor," Lewi:! Per-in-
bam, associate secretary of the
Canadian National Commission
of UNESCO told delegates to
the   two-day  discussion.

Politics and Principles
Diet's pragmatism
JOE: Mr. Diefenbaker's stand on South Africa has certainly
increased his popularity.
BOB: Yes, it's heartening to see a politician acting on the principles he lays claim to.
JOE: You don't think his action was pragmatical at the same
time, do you?
BOB: Well, a number of Commonwealth members would have
been offended by South Africa's continued membership . . .
JOE: While only South Africa will be offended by its expulsion.
BOB: But no doubt the principles came first, the pragmatism
as a by-product.
JOE:  In that case, now  Dief's  embracing principles  actively
maybe the quota of Chinese and Negroes allowed to settle
in Canada will soon be increased.
BOB: Maybe.
BOB: Hi! Back already?
JOE: Just wanted to ask you if you thought Ekelby should
have got paid for appearing on .that programme?
BOB: Don't see why not. He hasn't been working steady, so
he'll need the dough.
BOB: Starr seems to have' gone out of his way to discredit.
^E: Starr seems to think he shouldn't have got paid.
^fcelby*.   It's  funny. -
JOE:; He seems to have missed the point. Even if Ekelby did
two-time the CBC and the public, what difference does
it make?
BOB: How do you mean?
JOE: He's still a symbol of the thousands of real unemployed.
BOB: Yeah, but he ought to give the CBC their money back.
JOE: Fine! Tihen they could hire another couple to appear—
people that are unemployed. Unsullied symbols..
BOB: I get the feeling Starr would still try to obscure the
issue. Maybe he doesn't believe his own statistics.
JOE: Maybe he thinks statistics lie. We'd tell him different.
BOB: Yeah, my wife could easily cry when she thinks about it.
JOE: Maybe it all boils down to Starr being afraid of losing his
job if he doesn't shout loud enough.
BOB: Maybe.

Program  series to
be held  in West Van
A new program series, especially designed to bring UBC
to West Vancouver, will be held
this spring on the five-acre
"Rockwoods" estate located on
the waterfront of Bachelor Bay
in Whytecliff.
The property was given to
UBC by Major General and
Mrs. Victor Odium in December,
1959.
The program, which has been
arranged by the UBC extension
department, will consist of two
lecture-discussion series; family
courses in French and Spanish;
an adult painting workship and
a creative dance course for children.  Classes   begin   March   21.
One of the lecture series on
"Creativity" will stress the
meaning of'the creative process
in relation to specific fields of
architecture, mathematics, and
painting.
The second series on current
international problems is a six-
week course and will show
through analysis of political
and economic developments
causes of recent events in Africa,  Russia,  and  Algeria.
In addition to "family courses" in French and Spanish, which
will be conducted on twelve
Tuesdays at 8 p.m. commencing March 21, there will be a
special course, "Physics in the
Universe," directed by. Dr. F. A.
Kaempffer, UBC department of
physics. The special course will
be held on six Wednesdays, at
1  p.m.,  starting March  22.
A basic painting workshop,
conducted by Don Jarvis, will
emphasize sound composition
and imaginative use of color
and design during a 12-week
period beginning April 12.
"Children will have the opportunity of studying creative
dance under Mrs. Shirley Lar-
ter on ten Saturday mornings
commencing April 15.
Professors discuss
problems of future
SAN FRANCISCO — Some
4,000 superintendents and professors of administration from
all over North America and the
Pacific Islands under American
jurisdiction met here, seeking
education's answers to the
"Challenge   of   tomorrow."
From British Columbia, Dr. D.
C. Smith, Associate Professor at
University of British Columbia,
and Mr. C. J. Frederickson, Supt.
of Schools, Burnaby, B.C., Canada  attended.
Under discussion were problems dealing with matters as
diverse as whether the teachers
are subjecting the public to too
many tests and whether the
teachers themselves can be tested by school administrators.

is bright and cheerful. If the
artists are amateurs, and there
generally seems to me to be a
refreshing absence of money
about the place. However, I
wish to comment today on
several of the paintings, not
engage  in   doubtful   polemic.
To begin with, the show is
amateurish* The artists themselves happily admit this, explaining that most of them
are amateurs who engage in
the 'Painting in the Park' sessions in the summer, and who
set up tiny studios at home
during the winter. Their work
is usually derivative; often
it is downright imitation. But
there are also paintings of
some value here — some humorous, some very serious.
Amongst others are—
Mary Lou Crerar No. 21
This sea-scape is in pleasing pastel tones, but lacks
enough green. Unfortunately,
the heavy bristle and palette
strokes break up what should
be a well-integrated background. I wonder whether
the horizon ought to have
been as clearly defined as it
is?
Howard Kellond No. 58
A view of False Creek that
reeks of Van Gogh. This artist should ask himself what
exactly Van Gogh was doing.
J. Aikens No. 1
Mr. Aikens posed his model
so uncomfortably that he cotlld
not possibly dream in that
position. He would have to
drop his glass, bring his elbows closer together so that
he could really lean on his
foerarms, and drop his chin
lower. Had he done these
things, Mr. Aikens might have
been able to turn his canvas
through ninety degrees and
so fit in all the head. The
painting is well finished—but
Oh, that superfluous glass!
Helen Douglas No. 26
Her Late Winter Up The
Fraser is one of the most attractive pieces in the exhibition. However, she does tend
to reiterate her lines, curves
and shadows unnecessarily.
For instance, the elbow of
bank on the far side of the
river would have done very
well in crimson. It did not
need to be underlined in black.
Sam Black No. II
Very enjoyable, in dull
tones. Its focal point is unusual.
Jim Jickling No. 54
Very humorous and cheerful. I understand that a pediatrician has purchased this
and will hang it in his waiting
room.
Fred Schaeffer, No. 87
This gentleman has a great
deal  of technical ability, but
nothing to say with it.
Clive   Daly,   No.  22
Studio interiors are a time-
honored subject. Unfortunately, Mr. Daly, looking into this
studio, saw with his eye and
not with his heart. He tries
to make up for this lack of
feeling by applying color vig^
orously,    even   flamboyantly,
to his canvas, but this serves
in the end to compound his
original error. I think that
views of ones' own studio
must be very difficult. The
best are always of other peoples.
Derek Seddon, No. 94
Very often it is the surprise
in art that counts. I think
that this is the best painting
in the exhibition — no doubt
about it. A very spontaneous
.picture, and the square shapes
on one side flash up against
the rounds on the other. Apparently Mr. Seddon often
uses a dark mass to balance
out his pictures.
SCULPTURE
Edward  O.'Apt,  No.  1
I believe that this is eventually to be called 'School-girl
Waiting'. Molded in polyrock,
it had almost naively clean
lines'and a great deal of innocence. It escapes all embellishment. Something about this
suggests that it might well
stand in the children's corner
of the public library.
— PHILIP CAHIL
"SCHOOLGIRL WAITING" may
be the eventual name of this
piece of sculpture on display
at the Maratime museum.

Can Spring be far behind?"
Not at Hi Fi Sales where we are presenting a daily Hi Fi
Show to display and demonstrate the Lansing Ranger
Paragon.
Because the vocabulary of High Fidelity has been
usurped by the "hidden persuaders" of the mediocre,
we feel it necessary to undersell products of excellence.
However any person of intelligence, if he will apply the
words beauty and fidelity and believe them to be inseparable in a musical instrument, will recognize that the
Paragon stands alone in the sound reproduction field.
Faculty and parents are cordially invited to this showing. Also on display-the finest records or tapes, components, tape recorders, consoles, custom T.V. and cab-

"There is no reason why
UBC should be the Only major ,
University without an ice
arena" said UBC hockey coach
Al Stuart in a statement prepared for The Ubyssey.
"The primary inportance of
the arena would be the all-
round use by the student
body," he said. There is little
doubt that the arena would
be used full time as public
sessions in other city rinks
are always jammed."
"The hockey team would
be helped greatly." The Birds
presently get less practice
time than any other major
college on the continent.
He said Alberta and Saskatchewan practise at least
two hours a day, five days a
week, while UBC practised
one hour a day, three days
a week.
"While the other teams practise after classes during the
day, UBC practises as late as
1:00 ajn. and never before
10:30 p.m." he said.
"If UBC fields a full. Varsity and Jayvees team next
year, more than $1,500 will
be spent renting ice facilities^
This will .mean insufficient
practising time, as the rental
for games is exceedingly high
(as much as $6,000 for a two-
game   series).
"Extensive  revenue  oppor-
AL STUART

tunies will present themselves
through the hockey program.
Although many professional
teams are feeling the pinch,
college hockey is increasing'
in popularity, and many colleges depend on hockey revenue to support the whole
athletic budget, such as the
University  of  Denver.
"If UBC had a rink. It
could sponser games with
touring NHL teams, as the
U. of Toronto does with the
Toronto Maple Leafs. Also,
if the site of the Winter Olympics is in the Vancouver area,
the rink would undoubtedly
host some of the world's finest   amateur   hockey teams.
"UBC could also, if she desired, rent the rink to outside
groups for as much as $25
per hour.
"Besides the possibilities of •$■
figure     skating,     broomball,."
curling    and    s t a f f-student
games, UBC could advance a;
vast   intramural   hockey   network, similiar to that Of Sas-.

team intramural league.
