LOOKING FORWARD to the beginning- of exams, this student (?) takes a quick break from
his studies to consume some liquid and literary refreshment. "Shtudying ish the only life,"
he was heard to mutter gleefully. His identity is being withheld because his next-of-kin
might not approve. No, it's not Earl Smith.
Anyone and everyone eligible
for student offices this year
Who's eligible to hold student offices this year?
Answer: Apparently anyone
and everyone.
Council decided Monday
night that all students are
eligible to hold any number
of  offices  this  year  because:
• no one knows what the
term "office" means
• loopholes in the Code
allow a student to hold as
many "B" class offices as he
• there is no satisfactory
definition of what a "C" class
office is. .
The eligibility rules were
set up to prevent students .
from overloading themselves
with extra-curricular activities and thus failing academically; to spread offices out
among students; and to protect
organizations from students
with too many offices and too
little time.
The intent of the A, B and
C categories was to classify
the offices according to the
amount of time the holder
must spend in performance of
his duties.
Council Monday passed a
motion declaring four students
eligible who had been, declared "ineligible" by the
eligibility committee.
Council based its decision
on "the ambiguity of the code
as brought to light by the
eligibility committee's deliberations. . . ."
Second vice - president Pat
Glenn said that due to wording, a student is not limited
to a certain number of "B"
offices, but is limited in the
number of "C" offices he
. Treasurer Malcolm Scott
said there was no definition
of what an "office" was.
Scott also said that Student
Councillors hold an unlimited
number of "offices" and committee memberships.
"You can't have a dual
standard,"  he said.
Vice-president Eric Ricker
said that the Code Revisions
committee had not listed what
was entailed in a "C" office,
because such a "lengthy, tiresome list" would be almost
impossible  to compile.
"Code revisions wanted to
leave some discretion to the
eligibility committee," he said.
"There must be flexibility,
Snd some pastes will necessarily have to come to Council." |    ;:
"We shouldn't lose sight of
our objective," Forestry president Al Sawby said. "We're
trying to spread these offices
out a bit so more students
can participate."
Science president Bill
Munro said he agreed in principle that the code was not
precise enough, but added that
the same code has been interpreted before.
"Council    overruled     the
.eligibility committee," he said.
"There is no point in the committee sitting until the Code
is revised."
"There are too many students who hold too many jobs,
when other students are willing to do them," he added.
Authority lost
says college
shop manager
College Shop manager Phil Clark says student council
has stripped him of his responsibilities.
Council, investigating a slhop loss of $1,707 over the first
two months as compared with last year, has made two jnoyes:
• the College Shop committee
will decide policy and. the manager will merely look after promotion and sales practices.
discourage   some
• and, the manager will be
obliged to report monthly to the
committee on the previous
month's operations.
Clark complained to The
Ubyssey about, council's actions
in making a committee paramount to the manager.
"I don't think there should be
a committee. You're under the
impression you're going to run
the show when you apply for
the position," he said.
Council doesn't know what it
wants the shop to be, Clark told
council members.
"iThe present committee is
just about useless. I don't think
any suggestions have been given
to the manager since the shop
was formed."
Accounting to council Monday
night for the $1,707 drop in
sales, Clark broke; the losses
into five categories:
• $410 drop in Armory during registration
• $375  straight sales drop
• $637 drop from faculty
sweater sales
• $150 accounted for reduction of blazer crest prices
• $135 came out of umbrella
price reductions.
The shop manager suggested
the answer to the Armory loss
was that frosh must be getting
smarter: out of more than 900
UBC beanies on hand only 80
sales were made.
He complained that conditions
in the Armory made his sales
program "too much of a rat-
race", and felt the College Shop
shouldn't take a booth there
next year.
Clark said he felt the inconvenience of waiting for certain
items   might
"When producers have an
order from us for two dozen of
something and an order from
somewhere else for 500, we don't
get  preferential  treatment."
He   added that  the  company
making   faculty   sweaters   was
having   problems   getting  wool
from Eastern Canada.
"Besides," argued Clark, explaining the shop's continuing
sweater losses, "faculty members can get their sweaters
cheaper — College Shop has to
make a mark-up. It's in business
and the faculties aren't."
Council made the motions
over Clark's protests that financial statements shouldn't be expected every, month.
"This is going to entail taking
inventory every month. We
haven't got that sort of time,"
the manager insisted.
Clark was given until the second week of January to submit
to council proposals for promotion of Shop sales.
UBC sends

Student vice-president Eric
Kicker Thursday told the Ubyssey that 100 questionnaires have
been sent to Canadian universities to find out about the effectiveness of their student police
So far only about 25 replies
have been received by the council. Reminders are being sent
to those universities which have

McGregor says arts council would

Dr. Malcolm McGregor Thursday scoffed at the Arts
Undergraduate Society's defence of a proposed debate on
He quoted a paragraph from Thursday's Ubyssey:
"Arts council members speaking in favor of the debate
argued it would bring recegnition to the Arts Society."
Said McGregor: "They could bring recognition to the
society if they all undressed and paraded around the campus."
Other administration officials were non-committal regarding council's rejection of the debate topic.

The Student Food Services
committee was organized two
years ago to give commuting
students the opportunity to air
their grievances on food services.
"We feel that those students
who do not live on campus but
must eat here should get the
same opportunity to suggest improvements in the facilities as
resident students do," committee co-chairman Don Farrish
"At present we are doing a
survey of students who eat on
campus to find out why they
eat here, what improvements
they would like made in the
services, etc.
"The Administration has expressed interest in the project,
since there has been no statistical survey of campus eaters
done in the past," Farrish said.
"We feel such a survey will
give us a very good indication
as to the changes that need tc
be  made  in Food  Services,   so
that they will benefit more students," he said.
Among the suggested improvements Farrish listed were:

• provision for a lunch and

The four Row K hopefuls

annoyed, when the usher
showed them where their seats
were supposed to be.
"Oh, that's too bad," he said,
his hair falling over his face
(it was a Players' Club production).
"Guess you'll have to wait at

Committee ignores Scott:
Poor polities' says NFCUS
A blast at the local National Federation of Canadian
University Students committee by student treasurer Malcolm Scott was shrugged off
as "poor politics" Thursday by
the committee chairman.
"Scott has been criticizing
student president Al Cornwall
for a number of things recently," said NFCUS president
Dave Anderson. "I suppose
this is another of those occasions."
Cornwall represented UBC
at a September NFCUS conference in Ottawa.
Tuesday Scott charged
NFCUS    with    doing   nothing
but receiving correspondence
this year.
Anderson defended the federation's activities, explaining
that, besides the activity generated at the recent Ottawa
conference: "We did far more
than any other campus club
towards getting the income tax
exemption to include cost of
"Scott's just not happy with
the fifty cents NFCUS costs
him,"  said Anderson.
Anderson said the fifty
cents the federation uses of
the $24 Alma Mater Society
fees goes mainly towards administration.
NFCUS keeps a head office
in Ottawa and various persons
there are on salary, he said.
Anderson said NFCUS saw
no reason to rush out for publicity this term.
"We did have very good
CUP coverage for the conference," he said. "And next term
we will be hoping for considerable coverage of our inter-regional  scholarships."
Anderson said NFCUS
found it very hard to do anything on an international basis
on campus because of the
possibility of conflicting with
the "several international
clubs already here."
He said the discount cards
were dropped because too few
students used  them.
Editors get

ST.  JOHN'S,  Nfld.   (CUP)-—Remuneration   for   students
taking voluntary. positions with the Council of the  Students
Union of Memorial University has been rejected by the CSU.
The   stand   was   taken   at   a
council meeting last week. It followed on the heels of the resignation of Peter Lebans as
editor-in-chief of the Muse, Memorial's campus, paper.
Mr. Lebans resigned his position Nov. 2 partly oyer the question of salary and partly because
of academic pressures.
Les Thomas, a former editor
of the Muse, told the CSU meeting that people who hold responsible positions in student affairs,
such as the president of the CSU
and the editor ofi the Muse,
should receive some "honorarium." When asked if by honorarium, he meant money, he replied: "Yes, money."
Verne Somers, finance chairman, took a middle position. He
believed that when students accept these positions, they should
be given the choice between a
merit award or a salary.

Lots—because fabrication is an important part of
Alcan's business. About 15% of our ingot production
is fabricated in Canada into finished products. (The
other 85% makes a vital contribution towards
Canada's export trade.) In our own plants, we make
semi-finished and some finished products:
At Arvida, P.O.: Rod for wire production and other applications;
aluminum paint pigment.
At Shawinigan, P.Q.: Wire, electrical cable, cable accessories.
At Kingston, Ont.: Sheet, plate, foil, extrusions and tubing.
At Etobicoke, Ont.: Die castings, permanent mold castings and
sand castings.
At Vancouver, B.C.: Extrusions, rod and wire, electrical cable.
Fabrication at Alcan is a challenging business, not
only for graduates in physical metallurgy and mechanical engineering, but also for those in nearly all other
engineering and many science disciplines. A typical
metallurgical problem might involve development
work in the fabrication and heat treatment of Al-Mg
alloys used in sheet plate and extrusions for road and
rail transport. Whatever your specialty, you are likely
to find challenging assignments at Alcan. If you're
interested, please write to
or talk to our representative when he visits your campus

NEWS ITEM 1961: AMS council censors arts debate.
In 1984, a UBC freshman writes a letter to his parents.
The 1984 council has much, refined a practice started by their

it was called censorship.

Dear mom,
Hi mom, how's everytihing at home. Everything is great
here except the food which is just  XXXXXX. Classes are
going great too, except for  some of the profs who  are  rust
wonderful       ,   _
XXXXXX. However, I hope to pass my year.
I'm going out with a really good crowd, mom, and I'm
having a wonderful time. The only thing that bothers me is
the XXXXXX rules, which, we are told, are made for in our
own interest. But I think they're XXXXXX.
We had a debate the other day. It was to be of a rather
XXXXXX  nature—"Rain  and  its   effects on   the  campus"—
but the ^council, made up of some good guys and a bunch of
XXXXXX, changed the topic to, "Rain—and its good effects
on the campus."
Books are pretty XXXXXX out here mom, but I think

Dad would, never have let me read them at home. And further-
more we diseuss XXXXXX in class. You know, all about the
birds and bees? There's this guy Chaucer and he's about the
XXXXXX old man I've ever read!
Sure is a nice campus here mom, but it's so darned big
a  fellow's feet feel just XXXXXX  after  walking from one
class to another. There are some good eateries on the campus,
mom, and one is the cafe in Brock Hall. Only thing wrong
with it is the coffee, and its just XXXXXX
Well mom, it's time to go now. I'll write again  as  soon
as I get time.
P.S. I hear the council has asked the administration to
get rid of this guy Chaucer. Too much XXXXXX in his stories.
The right to differ
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
In my opinion your editorial
"Against . . . just because" of
Nov. 10 reached an all time
low. Do you honesfly think you
can fight slander with more
slander? Do you really believe
that those students who do not
hold the same point of view as
the Ban-the-bombers are therefore McCarthyists, Goldberg-
ists, Americanists, Ultra-rightists and John Birchists?
I would be the last to deny
that there is a goon element on
this campus that likes nothing
better than to scribble on walls,
but please don't put everbody
who differs with you into the
same catagory as these punks.
You support demonstrations
in favour of nuclear disarmament but roundly condemn
those who are opposed to nuclear disarmament with the .
words, "a senseless demonstration by a small group." It may
be news to you but that small
group has the tacit support of
the majority of the students on
this campus. As for senseless
demonstrations, this seems to be
a sad case of the pot calling the
kettle black.
What really sickens and disgusts me is the anti-American
theme running through the editorial. I had honestly thought
that we had seen the end of
this type of senseless and dangerous pseudo-nationalism, it
seems I was wrong.
I am not the one to force my
opinions Onto an unwilling listener, therefore I won't strain
your already - made - up mind
but I do assure you that I, along
with many others, have not
given up my ability to reason
to anybodys propaganda. My
ability to reason, limited as it
is, may not be perfect but I do
object to having it described as
an isolated area of distorted
Yours truly,
Still hope?
Tiie Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
The pushing forward into
new realms by the systematic,
analytical, experimental and
logical   concluding   process
known as Science, often tends
to create barriers to the
religious groping of one's
Formerly confronted with a
seemingly infintum of space,
new theories centre about the
hypothesis that space is actually curved, arising to speculations of an infinite, yet
bounded universe. Consequently proposed is that if one sets
out in a supposedly straight
line, he will eventually end up
where he started from.
If the example above and
others were to be proved beyond all doubt, some people
would look elsewhere than to
the heavens for their personal
salvation and identification
with a personal Deity.
One possibility of neligious
endeavors would be the reversing of sacred thoughts to concepts centering about the atom.
Who knows? The answer may
be found in an overlooked
orbital characterized by a small
statistical probability of being
occupied by an electron.
Another possible sacred field
is represented by the human
mind. But, unfortunately, psychologists, physiologists, and
Freudian - type psychoanalysts
are delving into this expansive
field, and are coming up with
most distressing facts about a
predictable and vulgar animalistic nature of man.
Let us, however, have cheer.
Anything may turn up. Anyway, Khrushchev may not be
such a bad fellow after all.

Mind your manners
The Ubyssey
Dear Sir:
What is wrong with our manners at^UBC? I went to hear
Dr. Hugh Keenlyside speak in
Brock Lounge and I found I
was only lucky enough to hear
a portion'1 of his informative
talk. The rest of it was smothered by an inarticulate roar from
behind and above. I was embarrassed that this was the reception we were giving to a
man of Keenlyside's calibre.
What a welcome—the thunder
of feet and the rattle of lunch
It is bad enough that our
permanent lecturers must endure the humiliation of having
their final words of each and
every lecture drowned out by
this impolite cacaphony. Now
we have taken to subjecting
distinguished guests to the
same competition for the attention of those who have assembled to listen.
I realize that people must eat
their lunches during this one
hour but this can be done quietly and a muffled din is understood by the speaker. But such
was not the case this ill Friday! There were unmannered
boors in the balcony who had
some falsely conceived impression that we were there to hear
them. Their laughter, talking
and bag rattling, coupled with
the hubub of footsteps from the
back of the lounge caused even
the patient Dr. to frown more
than once.
Perhaps signs can be posted
outside the lounge to indicate
that a speaker is present and
I hope we can rely on a fund
of common decency, which I
am sure is hidden somewhere
in every student's moral stuc-
ture, to respect such a speaker
and to be quiet.
But surely we do not need
to go so far as to police the
balconies above in order to
ensure our guests of protection
from undue interruption. If we
have come to this point I blush
for my fellow students because
I thought that I had left monitors behind me in elementary
school. I hope this matter can
be corrected in the future so
as to avoid the embarassment
of the past.
Arts IV
Do   Jews   stick  together?
Jack  Ornstein
Canada's leading scientists
have secretly been conducting
tests at the Whynot Lavatories
in Flin Flon in an attempt to
answer the above question.
' Of course nobody expected
Scotch tape to work on Jews
but even Lepagesky's glue
(used in all Jewish parochial
schools) failed to produce the
desired result. It seemed impossible to get even two Jews
to stick together. Dr. Blotz suggested (scientists always suggest) that perhaps it was our
"hooked" noses that prevented
-us from sticking together. It
was subsequently determined
that even denosed Jews were
Then we tried to stick two
Chinese    people    together
(Chinese . . . not Siamese!).
'This too proved unsuccessful.
We used members of all races,
creeds and colors. We even
tried to stick a Jew to a Catholic and a Chinaman to an Eskimo. All to no avail.
The only successful experiment registered during our 30
year's research was when we
stuck a male to a female. We
did that back in 1939 and still
haven't been able to separate
them. Some of our leading
scientists (all scientists lead)
have suggested that perhaps the
singular reaction here could
provide valuable new insights
into life on our planet. We'll
have   to   wait   for   the   final
figures before we announce the
net results.
In conclusion (finally}, we
decided that no single factor,
e.g., color, glue or creed, is
enough to make people "stick

In case you've still got that
innocent, puzzled look on your

this article when asked if it's
true that "All the Jews stick

Woman to be chancellor

UBC's new lady chancellor
— perhaps the only one in
existence — will be the winner of what probably will be
cleanest election to be held in
B.C. for a long time.
There will be little or no
electioneering and campaigning, no bands, no speeches, no
grand promises, no mudfling-
ing. The ladies will show ladylike restraint.

Conferences out

LONDON (CUP) — Graduate
students at the University of
Western Ontario will not be
sent to student conferences at
other universities, the University Student Council decided.
The major objection expressed
was that undergraduates pay
most of the expenses for conferences and graduate students obtain too many benefits for the
amount of money they pay for
student activities.

with the University of British
"I have lived with UBC for 42
years," she smiled.
After graduating in 1923 with
First Class Honours in English
Language and Literature, Mrs.
Angus married a young UBC
professor, Dr. Henry Angus, who
later became UBC's Dean of
Graduate  Studies.
As an undergraduate, Mrs
Angus was an active participant
in student affairs. She was president of the Women's Undergraduate Society and vice-president
of the student council. She was
one of the early members of the
Letters Club and the first winner of the Player's Club Prize
with her one-act play "The High
When asked what she would
tike to see done at UBC if she
were elected Chancellor. Mrs.
Angus replied that policy matters
rested with the Senate and the
Board of Governors.
"I feel, however,',' she said,
"that more money is needed if
the University is to continue its
present rate of expansion. I am
convinced after having served
6 years on the school board that
the people of British Columbia
are willing to pay for good education."
In 1952 Mrs. Angus was awarded the Coronation medal for her
achievements in the field of child
welfare and education. She has
written many articles on the
subject and since 1940 has served as board member on various
Children's Aid Societies across
tinguished UBC graduates,,
Mrs. Henry Angus and Mrs.
Frank MacKenzie Ross. Both
of the women have been active in the affairs of the university.

The chancellor will be
elected by the convocation.
This body of about 22,000 consists of all graduates, chancellor, senate, the original
founders, faculty and presidential appointments.
The University statutes state
that the chancellor is elected
for a three-year term, and can
be re-elected but cannot hold
the position for more than
six consecutive years.
In case of the vacating of
the office by death, the successor holds the office for the
remainder of the unexpired
term, at the end of which another election is held.
k   k   k
The voting is being conducted by a mail ballot, with
the deadline at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Candidates are nominated
by seven members of the convocation.
They have four days in
which to decline, as the two
male     nominees,     Hugh     L.
Keenleyside and  Leon  Koerner, did.

Ballots will be opened on

The election is the first for
chancellor since 1916. The post

A former Chatelaine of Government House, Mrs. Frank MacKenzie Ross, is a candidate for
the chancellorship of the University.
Said Mrs. Ross: "I have a great
interest in all problems concerning the University. If I am elected Chancellor, I shall certainly
do my utmost to deal with problems as best I can."

Gateway wants cash
gets blast instead
EDMONTON (CUP)—A request for more money put the
Gateway, the University of AlBerta campus paper, into Hot
water last week.
Editor Dave Jenkins appeared
before council November 14 to
request an increase in the
budget. He explained that
editors in the last three years
hati been forced to cut out
issues in the latter part of the
term due to lack of funds.
He said that when he appeared
before the council last spring to
request an increase in The Gateway fee, this was done "to ensure that The Gateway would
be maintained in the future,''
but would not help the newspaper this term as the fee increase would not be implemented until the falLof 1962.
Council passed the Gateway
fee increase and a referendum
was suggested for the present
term (1961).
Council President, Peter
Hyndman, after receiving the
consent of council to speak personally from the chair, accused
the Gateway of "fabrication"
which led to the "misuse of
H.e referred   to   the   Gateway
mascot, and the publication of a
hoax to the effect that Stan
Kenton was returning to the U
of A this year. (Last year,
Kenton was paid $7,500 for four
concerts, each of which was a
failure. The Gateway printed a
gag story early this term saying
that he was coming back to
make good the loss. The story
said that tickets would go on
sale in 1982.)
"Council finances the Gateway," he said, "and in return
is treated less than fairly."
Editqr Jenkins told the councillors that Hyndman was "seizing on petty little things. If you
have a major beef, bring it up."
None was  brought forward.
Hyndman then left the council
room until the discussion was
concluded. When he returned,
He told the councillors that his
remarks had not been directed
at tbe quality, but at the nature
of the content of the paper.
A motion calling for an increase of $1,100 iii the Gateway's budget was put before
council. After half an hour's
debate,   the   matter  was  tabled.
Mrs; Ross was awarded a Fellowship for graduate work at
Bfyn Mawr College. Since then
she has had a distinguished
career as an economist. In 1945
she held the position of Chief
Research Economist to the Cana-
rian Tariff Board and the
Dominion Trade and Industry
Although Mrs. Ross wrote and
passed the required PhD exams
at Bryn Mawr, her thesis concerning Canadian communistic
and religious sects had not yet
been published.
The honors awarded Mrs. Ross
include that of honorary doctor
of Law from UBC and the Great
Trekker Award of 1954.
Mrs. Ross has been called "a
noted UBC campus beauty of
the 1920's" in a recent magazine
article. In 1925 she graduated
jom UBC with First Class
Honors in Economics and Political Science.
"The Chancellor acts as the
chairman of the Board of Governors," explained Mrs. Ross,
The duties of the Chancellor
are set out in the University
"I intend to dp my utmost to
oerform these duties should I
be elected," she adde#.

There are two reasons for this:
First, mothers who have used

Complete freedom of action.
No odor, no disposal problems,

Tampax is invisible and

to your poise. You can bathe

The Company's operations are highly diversified. Thus,
men are exposed to varied sets of business problems in
such diverse fields as nuclear reactors, heavy apparatus

The Company's organization is decentralized into product
business departments. This brings men from finance,
engineering, marketing and manufacturing into close
daily association for business planning and decisionmaking, increases knowledge and understanding of all
functions of the business.
Rotating assignments are combined with graduate seminar
classes. A variety of initial finance-oriented on-the-job
assignments in several product business departments
and graduate-level seminar courses provide a solid
grounding in many areas of business operation.
There are continuing opportunities for professional development. The opportunity to continue throughout a

The statement removing the
moratorium read as follows:
*       *       *
"The moratorium concerning student groups taking
actions in political and social
issues is removed as of Wednesday, November 8, 1961.
Since there was considerable
misunderstanding concerning
it, I want to stress the fact
that it was not set forth as
punishment to any one person
or group. A series of events
on and off the campus was
occurring leading to tensions
which did relate directly to
the basic issues originally involved. The moratorium had
as its basic intent the break
ing of this type of interaction.
This has occurred.
"The co-operation of several
of the student leaders was excellent, once they understood
the seriousness of the situation.
I wish to express appreciation
also to the faculty most involved in this as members of
boards of committees for their
fine assistance in keeping the
situation under control.
*       *       *
"We all believe that students need the opportunity to
study, analyze, evaluate and
express their ideas concerning
social, economic, and political
issues. Our task in the immediate weeks ahead is to
analyze the best possible
means for students to express
their   convictions."

Rumors that two playing fields behind Brock Hall will be

Fifth-year education student
Roy Bianco ha? been named
Most Inspirational Player by
his football teammates for the
second straight year.
Bianco, hard-hitting fullback
of the Thunderbirds, was named
the winner yesterday. Halfbacks Peter Black and Dave Lee
were named co-holders of the
Most Valuable Backf ielder
Guard Byron Kemp was
named Most Valuable Lineman.
All four players graduate in the
Tackle Roy Shatzko and linebacker Al Bianco (Roy's younger
brother) have been elected co-
captains for next year. They
succeed Ray Towers and Jim
Beck, both graduating this year.
Roy Bianco, 23, has just finished his fourth season with
Frank Gnup's Birds. Last year,
he won the backfield award as
well as the most inspirational
player title.
Be was second in team scoring this year, and third in rushing, picking up 343 yards on 75
carries, an average of 4.6 yards
per carry.
Lee and Black both are two-
year veterans. Kemp played his
first year with the Birds. He is
taking a graduate education
"Absolutely    no    plans
been made for paving the fields,"
he said.
Officials of men's and women's athletics as well as student council had earlier expressed concern about the encroachment of building and' parking
areas on playing fields.
The Men's Athletic Association, the Men's Athletic Committee, the Women's Athletic Committee, the student council had
all passed resolutions protesting
any possible encroachment on
the Field House and Brock grasshockey and cricket fields.
Already two fields have been
consumed by the construction of
the new education building.
The resolutions all referred to
"proposed plans" for construction of parking lots on the grasshockey fields, and added that:
• the existing total playing field
area is not sufficient
• the new Woolfson fields
(ready in September) would
not sufficiently offset loss of
the two fields
• normal expansion of athletics
has been curtailed because of
lack of field space.
• present fields are deteriorating from overuse.
They stated that a commitment from the Board of Governors ensuring that present playing fields would be preserved
was desirable and that if it was
deemed necessary to expropriate
the fields, adequate replacement
fields be built and be ready for
use before the old fields were
actually torn up.
Hughes said that he had met
with ahtletic department and
student officials this week and
assured them that no such plans
were being considered.
"If a better use for the fields
comes along, they will naturally be used for that purpose, just
as the Buchanan building may
some day be used for some other
purpose," he said.
Hughes also said he hoped
construction would begin on the
new winter arena by next March
and that it would be ready for
use before 1963.

For Jayvees, Braves
Page 11
Nothing after the ball is over
Two UBC basketball, teams,
the Jayvees and the Braves,
are in the unenviable position of being all dressed up
with no place to go.
No matter how hard they
practice, nor how well they do
in their games this season,
when the end of the year rolls
around neither team will be
in the playoffs.
The reason the Jayvees will
have no chance to enter a play
off is that they are playing
only exhibition games this
year. There just isn't a suitable league around for them to
enter, say UBC officials.
The Braves, however, are in
a league, the Junior Men's
League and would be eligible
for the playoffs, if they wished to enter.
But because the playoffs are
held during University exams,
and because of the prohibitive
cost of sponsoring  the finals,
j Words on Birds
UBC's Thunderbird football team didn't score more points
than their opponents this year, but they still won more games
than they lost.
Cumulative team statistics released today showed Birds
scored 130 points in nine games while their opponents counted
Birds finished the season with a record of five wins, three
losses and one tie. In league play they were undefeated, winning three games and tying one on their way to their second
Western  Intercollegiate championship in three years.
On the yardsticks. Birds finished slighlly ahead of their
opposition in total offense, 2530 yards to 2327.
The statistics showed halfback Pete Black as a major factor in the Birds' success. Black was among the top four in team
scoring, rushing, and pass receiving. He carried 65 times for
an average of 5.6 yards per carry and three touchdowns.
End Dave Barker was the team's scoring leader, totalling 28 points on two touchdowns, a field goal and 13 converts. Dave Lee had the best average gain rushing (6.1), while
Jack Scriber gained the most yards (413) on the most carries (95).
Barker was the top pass receiver, catching 74% of 27
passes for 251 yards. Tom Andrews had by far the best average
gain (22.9) and was second in yards gained despite the fact that
he played only four games.
Highly-touted quarterback Barry Carkner attempted 134
passes, completed 61 for 876 yards, a 46% average. He had 13
intercepted, but threw for five touchdowns. He also punted 69
tirhe for an excellent 38.5 yard average, despite five blocked
kicks. ' '
But statistics fail to show the great job done by;some of "the
other players. These unrecognized standouts include Bruce McCallum, a consistently fine man on defence; Jim Beck, the
leader of the Bird line; and Roy Shatzko, who continually broke
up the opposition's offense in their own backfield.
Next year's prospects are not too bright. The Birds lost
13 players to graduation and the majority are linemen. Coach
Frank Gnup hopes to fill the gaps with linemen from the Chiefs,'
but the outlook is still pretty bleak.
On this optimistic note the season ends. We're champions
of our league such as it is. (The future is bleak—but it was the
same last year and we did all right. Football is not big, but what
sport is? Let's face it: we're a bush team playing in a bush league
with better than bush players.)
See you next year.

UBC officials have decided not
to enter the Braves in the Vancouver and District Junior
Men's League playoffs.
As a result neither the
Braves nor the Jayvees will be
able to look forward to any
post-season excitement.
There is one consolation for
the Jayvees, however. Although they play only exhibition games this year, they are
scheduled to meet some of the
best teams from nearby Ameri
can Junior Colleges.   Jayvees
play Seattle's Pacific Jayvees,
twice, Western Washington
once,    and    Olympic    Junior

Jayvees have been trying
for several years to get games
with some of these teams. The
UBC coaching staff hopes that
since they have scheduled the
games this year, in the future
