Government corrupt
Liberal   MLA
says
Sherbrooke editor
expelled; staff quits
SHERBROOKE (CUP) — The
seditdr of Campusi Estrien, the
University of Sherbrooke student newspaper, has been expelled from university for failing ■ rth^ee term examinations,
but tftfi [paper says that his academic ijecord was not the only
consideration1 hv his expulsion.
Maurice Giroux, a third year
student in law was advised of
his expulsion Jan. 9, and a students' councij (AGES) meeting
agreed with the action.
The staff of the paper resigned leaving one member who
is now the editor. In the past
Giroux had opposed the council
on certain measures.
In the Jan. 18 issue of the
Campus, Joe Lavoie, news editor, stated that the Council of
fhe Faculty of Law does not follow a set of rules in dealing
with faling students^ Each case
is dealt with individually.
"Furthermore, added Lavoie,
it is not secret that the authorities of the faculty have never
approved of students in extra
curricular activities.",
Then, the article continued,
Giroux had his own ideas on
the issue of a site for the new
faculty of Law. He wanted it
to be on campus while the majority of professors and administrators of the faculty wanted
it to remain near the courthouse
in another section of the city.
Asked if the expulsion was
subject to appeal, Albert Le-
blanc, dean of the Faculty of
Law stated that he did not usually answer such questions by
journalists. He refused to say
whether or not Giroux had the
right to appeal.
Giroux said he woijld continue
to work as a journalist, and perhaps study abroad next year.
Raft of mishaps
on campus roads
due to fog, ice
Four major accidents and
numerous minor ones occurred
Wednesday morning between
8:30 and 9, sending two students
to hospital with minor injuries.
Most serious accident happened at the intersection of
Acadia Road and University
Boulevard, when six cars piled
into one another.
Due to heavy fog and ice the
driver of the lead car tried to
stop at .the change of lights. The
other five piled into him.
The traffic control light was
smashed and broken off when
one of the six cars smashed into
it. The driver was taken to
Wesbrook Hospital with minor
injuries.
Less than a block away, a car
plunged under the flat deck of
an Evans-Coleman-Evans construction truck, which was
across, the highway. The driver
was taken to Dr. , Johnson's
house in the same block, - to receive treatment. He was later
sent to Wesbrook.
A third accident occurred on
Chancellor Blvd. at the corner
of Tasmania when on car hit the
back of an Austin, which was in
lhe ditch.
^Another accident was reported on the Main Mall outside the
research centre involving three
cars. The extent of the damage
is not known.
Gibson to reveal truth
on   floor   of   House
Liberal MLA J. Gordon Gibson told the UBC Liberal Club
Tuesday that he will reveal details o,f Social Credit graft and
corruption when he re-enters the Legislature next Thursday.
Gibson  is the man who  was ■ •
expelled   from   the   Legislature      "If I said today some of the
in 1955 for refusing to apologize
after saying "money talks" in
granting of tree farm licenses
in B.C.
He charged that the Socreds
had spent $1 million on public
works in the Lillooet area to
get him defeated in th esubse-
quent by-election.
Twelve cabinet ministers
spent two weeks in the area
promising anything to anyone if
they would vote against him, he
said.
Gibson said he didn't mind
this, it had given him a five-
year rest and he was ready to go
back.
Gibson said that 20 big companies were running the province and making millions
through the influence of their
lobbies in Victoria. He told of
one company's stock which
made $24 million for its few
shareholders when the company
secured a tree farm license.
things I intend to say in the
legislature I could be sent to
jail, but I will have immunity
of speech in the House." (The
legislature opens Thursday.
Gibson spoke of the present
government as - "the most rank
group erf amateurs in the world."
He said, that 99 p«r cent of all
business; failures Were due to
poor management, and that was
what the Bennett administration
is giving B.C.
"People in Vancouver are upset because John Paurucker was-
able to steal a few thousand dollars, but if they ever took an
audit in Victoria, Panrucker
would be thought a small-timer," x
he stated.
He said the vitality of youth
was needed in government and
that the U.S. was very lucky to
have a young, energetic man as
president.
B.C. should adopt a proportional voting system , under
which people aged 21 to 30
would have four votes, 30 to 40
three votes, 40 to 5b two votes,
and over 50 only one vote, Gibson stated.
NBC's  farce
Campus life satirized
Ricker  paves way
for   summer   jobs
Summer jobs should be easier to get this year, thanks to
the efforts of the Student Employment Committee under the
chairmanship of Eric Ricker, Second Member at Large on the
Students' Council.
The purpose of the committee
is;    .
e To disseminate information
from the local and national employment service to the student
body.
e To find additional job opportunities.
* To work with the personnel
office, giving and getting advice.
.AjbQok- put out by the National Employment Service Supply
and Demand of University Grads
is now being given away free at
the AMS office. It gives an idea
of what is open in the way of
jobs.
Letters are being sent to the
major business firms in B.C., requesting them to favor students
when hiring additional employees this summer.
Two letters have also been
sent to the B.C. government.
- One is to Dr. Morrison, the
director of the civil service commission. The other, sent to
Rusty Black, the provincial secretary, asks for special consideration in the policy for hiring
summer employment, especially
in the departments of highways,
recreation and conservation.
HUBERT, a freshman at UBC
several years hence, receives
"terrific bargains" during registration in "Five Glorious
Years,'" presented by NBC in
Brock, Wednesday.
By SHARON McKINNON
Ken Hodkinson's satirical
farce, "Five Glorious Years," depicting the life of the frat at
UBC, and parodying everything
from registration to Mardi iGras,
was well received by a large
crowd in Brock Lounge, Wednesday. . .1
The farce, directed (by Liz
Fraser, was set in the l^ears
1970-75, at a slightly changed
UBC campus.
Enrollment was up to 55,000;
frats were almost non-existent;
NBC had been in power for
fifteen years; there were a few
more buildings, and fees were
$1,350 for the first term.
Hubert,, a lonely freshman
who survived registration, became interested in the Gamma
Kappas and rushed the "Gooks"
in his sophomore year.
After a rousing welcome by
his brother "Gooks" (all four of
them), he became a real frat
man. He took Commerce,
changed his attire and name, and
bought an Austin-Healey.
The farce then proceeded to
attack:
e sex habits of frat men
e the capitalist faculty of
Commerce
e food services
• paper cutting in the faculty
of Education
•' Buildings and Grounds —
whose authority knows no
bounds
• the home ec. faculty
• campus elections — only
greeks vote
• student councillors
• mardi gras
" The student's council scene
portrayed the councillors sleeping, blowing bubbles, reading
Ubysseys, flirting, doodling and
doing almost everything but conducting business.
There were motions to discuss
subjects, immediately followed
by motions to table the discussion because "it is traditional
that the council does not involve
itself in anything controversial."
The meeting was concluded by
lively discussion about a party.
The farce concluded with the
dramatic end of the last frat on
campus. Two scientists from the
east carried Hubert away for
scientific research on his species.
Finding that his breed could not
be propagated, they turned him
loose, and the audience was told
that he was last Seen swinging
from the top branch of the B.C.
Electric.
The farce was sponsored by
NBC, and proceeds went to their
campaign funds. <&'

An injustice?
Another editor expelled. That's the word we got from
Ganadian University Press Wednesday.  (See story, page 1).
-Maurice Giroux, expelled editor of Campus Estrien, succeeded in having his paper admitted to CUP at the national
Qflavention iri December. He was producing an extremely
competent newspaper.
^'r^fae acteiinistration says the expulsion was due to his
apc^demic recdrd, Tihe paper says there were other consider a-
tions.
■"The member papers of CUP owe it to M. Giroux to support him, if he has been expelled without due cause.
"«It-seems to-us; from the sketchy information available,
that this may indeed be the case.
"If he was expelled as a result of a clash of opinions with
tjie authorities in his faculty, as the information intimates,
tfeen, it is up to other students across Canada to cry out
against such injustice.
It seems strange to us that a third year law student
Would be expelled simply for failing three term examinations.
, We hope that the administration at Sherbrooke University
will make its position more clear on this matter so that we ,
can-pass fair judgment.   Apparently,   they  don't   "usually
answer suclh questions by journalists."
Surely, they are not afraid to make their policy clear.
xare, please
The Ubyssey has been assured that more than 90 percent
of cars towed away on campus are illegally parked.
What worries us is the other 10 percent. Buildings and
Grounds Superintendent T. S. Hughes, who hears preliminary
appeals, is available only once monthly, and there seems to
be no. other accessible method of immediate appeal.
What we really object to is the indiscriminate towing away
of cars from, visitors! lots. This is where most errors are made.
Arid we suspeet that a good deal less than-90 percent of the
cars towed away from these lots are illegally parked.
Wednesday, a visitor to The Ubysse^/a man was helping
the staff produce the paper, had his car towed from a visitors'
lot. This is somewhat, embarrassing to the host organization.
Here is one facet of the administration's enforcement
policy that definitely needs review. Visitors should be safeguarded.
NBC disappointing
We   were   somewhat   disappointed   in   the   "NBC   spec-
- tac.ulpr",; which7 was not quite  as  spectacular  as  we had
hoped.
'The -skit was well done and it was amusing. What was
d^appotritkrg was thai it,didn't strike home in too many
instances.
There is much to satirize on this campus. Too much of it
was overlooked in Ken Hodkinson's little masterpieee.
-He spent too much time on fraternities and too little on
such things as the weird enforcement system Buildings and
Grounds uses to keep students from parking illegally.
His satire on a Student Council meeting suffered from an
acute lack of knowledge. There are many things about
Student Council that could have been satirized very effectively, but the whole thing was glossed over.
' It became obvious that Mr. Hodkinson had attended very
few Council meetings. We were expecting the NBC to expose
tihe real errors in the ways of Council:—the errors that they
propose to cure.
We were disappointed. 'Oh, well.
Letters to the Editor
Army Objects
Jan. 19, 1961.
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
The Salvation Army expresses profound sorrow and
objection with regard to the
reported action of a student
group at such an esteemed
centre of culture and education as the U.B.C.
Your published article in The
Ubyssey, issued January 13.
1961, indicates that "in the
packed armory, to the melancholy strains of the "Salvation
Army" band and cries of "repent ye sinners, repent" a
group of drunks, etc., provided
an ironic contrast to the militant hymns of the band. On an
old Chev. rode a uniformed
member of obviously higher
rank whilst the shocked student crowd watched a woman
throw off her cape and bonnet
to reveal her pink swimming
suit and tight black leotards."
The Salvation Army came of
age through storms of brickbats and imprisonments, and
we are well able to take criticism, however misguided, in
our stride, but when sacred
things of the Christian faith
are profaned then we must
positively object.
We regret the raucous and
ribald treatment of articles of
the Christian faith concerning
sinners and repentance. We
also regret the desecration of
a symbol of our faith as evidenced in our uniform. The
centre of our Salvation Army
uniform badge is a cross and
it is therefore a religions vestment consecrated for use.
It is begging the question to
say that the "Mardi Gras"
Carnival in question was
simply, ,a lampoon and also
take-off on a similar travesty
which Occurred elsewhere. We
have no doubt but that such
action was also objected to at
its source..
We express sorrow for the
misguided young lady and her
associates, who appear in the
published photo, and commend
them to their religious advisers
for guidance.
We respect the Directors,
Faculty, and vast majority of
U.B.C. students, not included
in promoting this event,. and
trust that the few in question
w|ll .also come to .enjoy and
respect' the religious principles
for which we stand and of
^hich our uniform: and meth-"
ods are an integral part in our
service to God and the people.

Up With Idealism
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I am pleased to note that
even the University of Manitoba has not been able to stifle
new- thought. I offer this letter
as encouragement to those
'idealists' who may have felt
their cause discouraged by
those articles fro The Manitoban whieh appeared in Thursday's Ubyssey (Jan. 19).
If  we proceed  with   an  assumption   that   there   are   no
absolutes and that nothing is
completely predictable, w e
must reject a forecast that is
based entirely on man's past
action. It is foolish to argue
that man will not destroy himself simply because he has not
yet managed to do so. Similarly it is foolish to argue that
man's nature will not change
and that he will not improve
himself.
It may be safe to say that
without a change in nature
man will not be able to avoid
destroying himself. But man
individually has a strong desire to live. Why should it not
be possible for him to combine
with other men to create sud-
cessfully world peace and thus
fulfill his strong desire?
The change that is needed is
the faith or confidence that the
objective can be reached. No
sane person will argue that the
individual man is wrong in his
desire to live, but many otherwise sane persons argue that
he is wrong to join with others
in a positive step towards
achieving these aims.
A man who speaks out saying that peace'is possible and
who suggests a step that could
lead to peace is labelled an
'idealist'. But "in fact a person
who thinks we may somehow
stumble upon peace is even
more of an idealist, he in fact
hasn't even got an answer as
to how peace may be achieved.
He thinks that because peace
is good someone or something
will' create it for him.
There is an old platitude
which states that if something
is worth having it must be
worked for. There is no absolute truth here but there is a
great deal of realism. The
'idealist' feels that peace and
life are worth working for. He
has an ideal and a realistic approach to it, that is, he is willing to work toward the
achievement of that ideal.

Mercurial Prices
Editor,  The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
What kind of a bookstore is
this university running? This is
a question asked by students
of Introductory Accounting
(Commerce  151).
In first year accounting,
there is a compulsory assignment called the Thomas Practice Set. On Monday morning
the price of the practice set was
$3.50; on Tuesday it was £3.25.
Three weeks ago the price was
$3.00.
I realize that this store has
a monopoly on student supplies, but it is supposed to be
run to the advantage of the
students. At present, it is more
being run like the Toronto
Stock Exchange.
Pete McDonald,
Commerce I.
Pauling Limited
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
After reading Ruth Robertson's article on Dr. L..C. Pauling, several ideas occurred to
me. If I were discussing the
question of the morality of
capital punishment, would I
seek advice from a hang-man?
Further, if I wanted to get the
facts on the issue of capital
punishment, would I go to see
a hanging?
Similarly, Dr. L. C. Pauling
has many worthwhile qualifications in the field of Chemistry, but few in the fields of
Politics, Philosophy, or other
humanities. Thus Dr. L. C.
Pauling is very qualified to discuss the features of atomic
bombs and radiation effects,
but what value is this knowledge on the questions of ideological conflicts and economic
struggles?
R. G.
Anti-Tripe
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
It seems that unless a thing
is either anti-American, neu-
tralestic, or anti-religious, it
isn't worth printing in The
Ubyssey. Frankly, I get sick
and tired of reading such tripe.
Granted that there are a few
militant atheists (mortal know-
it-alls, I call them) around.
, Also there are a considerable
number of muddle heads who
believe that nuclear war can be
averted by hiding one's head
in the sand, so to speak, and
pretending that the Red threat
doesn't exist.
But why must such obnoxious groups get so much attention and be able to raise such
a clamor? Where are the other
sides? Why don't we hear from
some militant Christians who
firmly believe that Christ is
their Saviour and would "be
willing to die for their beliefs
like the Apostles? Where are
the noble youths who see the
real danger of Communism and
Red expansionism and trickery,
and who realize (like the Reds
already do) that we are actually at war with them and that
is a fight to the finish?
Why is there no campus
group which can see the real
threat of the happenings in
Cuba and will organize as a
counter balance to the "Fair
Play for Cuba" group? If such
seeds do not exist in our
student body, I fear for the
future, not only ,of Canada, but
of the world.

We, too, would like lo see
articles giving the other side
of the story. It is the policy of
The Ubyssey 16 print as many
contributions as space permits,
but we can print only what we
receive.—Ed.
'Depant 'em'
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
There is found oh this campus an unfortunate group of
students who have what are
called Saturday lectures. Perhaps the most unfortunate are
the male of the species, for
they must bear not only these
horrid lectures, but also those
females who, every Saturday,
don slacks, peddle-pushers, etc.
Being in this ill-fated group
of males, we wonder what
supreme poser it is that inspires
these women (if we may call
them such) to wear these female-type trousers. Why slacks?
To conceal ponderous posteriors? Probably not, for slacks
seem to accentuate overweight.
Why slacks? Why not let the
men wear the pants on the
campus?
To   these   "slack"   girls,  we
say, Arise! Off with the slacks,
on with the skirts. . . .

FIVE-THIRTY CLUB
By MALCOLM SCOTT
On many occasions in the past both this column and
The Ubyssey as a whole have criticized the Student Council
for their failure to make sure that important positions were
well advertised prior to any appointment being made. Now
Council has thrown open the position of Special Events Chairman for the 1961-62 session for applications.
This is- an extremely important, rewarding and interesting
job, one of the most desirable on Campus. The applicant need
not have any specific experience and a complete, well-
trained staff will be staying on for this year.
And what has been the response?
Not one applicant!
Not one of nearly 12,000 students so much as made an
enquiry!
At the recent general meeting one obviously euphemistic
optomist denied the presence of apathy on this Campus. If this
isn't apathy then what is?
Council has approved in principle the splitting of the
Arts and Science Undergrad Societies. It is hoped that this
split will result in two medium-sized, cohesive undergrad
societies to replace the present huge and unwieldy ASUS.
The idea appears to have merit, but there is one drawback
evident. The Science Undergrad Society, who of course hope
to seat t^ieir president on the next council, could be a shadow
organization composed of only a few people. These people
being the prime movers of the present split.
For this reason and because their constitution is not yet
properly written the final approval of the split has been
put off,,
Tuesday's Ubyssey carried a statement by the U.B.C. Radio
President to the effect that we might have a broadcast station
within a year. In the light of reports delivered to the Council
this would seem to be an overly optomistic view.
The proposal has been well received by the Extension
Dept. but to be accepted by the Administration it will need a
lot of polishing. Among other things, UBC Radio's programme
fare will have to change in order to prove that Radsoc can
live up to broadcast standards.
Another drawback is the plan advanced in some quarters
to make the station an FM station. This plan, which is impractical as there are few if any FM receivers in the area,
has considerable support.
Men's Athletic Association President, Don Robertson, has
proposed a re-appraisal of student polling on athletics. He
feels that UBC might be better off in the Evergreen Conference than the present league. His concern has been spurred
by the press report that Manitoba is not entering a football
team. He feels that this will cripple the present league. He
stated, "Right now, this league, as far as I am concerned, isn't
worth the $47,000 we're putting into it.
The first meeting of the Parking Appeal Board will be
held on the first Wednesday in February. It was suggested by
Dr. Wood of the Parking committee that this was a type of
court and that the students should come "properly dressed."
This attitude was deplored by the Council. They were
uniformly against it. President Edgar said, "I think that's
ridiculous." One councillor suggested that next step would
be to require the offenders' to "bring mommy and daddy with
them."
Sign-switching students

face the possibility of up to $100 fines for their part in a prank.

action on the matter still

The "Volte of Greenwich Village'
Ex-biology professor
condones campus sex
By J. R. GODDARD, the Village Voice
"Campus sex" may not be for all students, but wfay not
condone it for those sufficiently grown-up to know what they're
doing?
That's , the   question   biology j
professor   Leo   F." ■ Koch   (pronounced Cook) asked at the University   of  Illinois   last   spring, i
University  President  David  D. j
Henry was a fast man with an j
answer. He promptly fired Koch
for   his   "offensive   and   repugnant" views.
Koch and his battle for university reinstatement have since
become a minor cause celebre.
Presently operating out of the
American Humanist Association
offices at Sheridan Square, he's
telling New Yorkers all about
it in a fast round of church,
campus and TV appearances.
SEVERE CREW CUT
"All this began with an article
in the Daily Illini criticizing
heavy petting parties on campus", Dr. Koch explained. A
short, brisk man of 44 who sports
the academician's severe crew
cut, he seemed far from the
diabolical sexual anarchist some
groups have accused him of being. "The article was courageous
but ignorant of the real sexual
problem. So I wrote a reply."
Koch's leter said in part: "...
the events described are ...
symptoms of a serious social malaise . . . caused by the hypocritical and downright inhumane
moral standards engendered by
a Christian code ... already decrepit in the days of Queen Victoria . . . With modern contraceptives anG medical advice
readily available . . . there is no
valid reason why sexual intercourse should not be condoned
among those sufficiently mature
to engage in it without violating
their own codes of morality or
ethics."
It ends by stating: "A mutually satisfactory sexual experience
would eliminate . . . many hours
of frustrating petting and lead
to much happier and longer-
lasting marriages.  . . ."
"Academic freedom is very
much involved in this," said Dr.
Koch, who also heads a humanist -liberal group called the
School of Living. "I spoke up
because I felt I had to. I lost my
job. I think it's a good example
of what happens in universities.
The majority of faculty members
are badly suppressed. You can't
step out of line, and that's a
very bad situation."
Dr. Koch continued in the
academic vein for awhile. "The
fact that I'm a scientist threatens people even more," he went
on in a soft but self-assured
manner. "They don't want to
understand the human implications of biological knowledge.
Sex is only one example. Many
religionists think it's their private, supernatural territory. Then
the super-partiots — those who
make a profession of calling
others Communists—come along
and attack too."
He produced an impressive
pamphlet he said was being distributed widely in Chicago and
other Midwestern cities. It called his stand an "exhortation to
sexual promiscuity ... an audacious attempt to subvert the religious and moral foundations of
America."
"What I did was to suggest
the university condone natural
acts. I didn't say 'advocate," but
a lot of people took it that way."
THE SEXUAL SCENE
What then were the biologist's
views behind his job-losing letter? How would he implement
them in a different kind of society?? Dr. Koch responded in an
unemotional, almost dry manner:
"Kinsey claimed three quarters of American men and half
the women have pre - marital
sexual intercourse," he said. "I
think that's conservative. On
campus most students are at an
age when their urges are strongest. They can't get married.
They're severely frustrated. You
can't shrug off a biological need
like that."

Prof. D. C. Aird of the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration, stated Monday
that the newest type of IBM
computer will form the core of
that Faculty's Open House display.
Displays of each of the five
major departments of the faculty will be co-ordinated in some
way with the computer. While
on display the computer will be
working on demonstration problems in linear programming.
The computer is of the same
type ordered by the University.
The Division of Finance will

CUP Capers

If you attended the last
AMS meeting you would nave
noticed that the Completely
Unnecessary Party were unable to take over due to the
lack of apathy.
However, we were recruiting members.
The new CUP members
were the paper dart throwers,

You thought you were hav-
night, kissing your girl friend
(or boy friend as the case may
be.)
To spoil this delusion I shall
refer you to an article in the
Brunswickan. It seems a study
has been made.
In the "good old days" it
took at least a year for the
boy to work his way down
from his end of the couch and
ask his blushing maid for a»
kiss. The first kiss was the
magic moment. '
Not any more. The advance
of science has changed this,
stripping the kiss of its aura
of mystery.
Not too long ago a scientist
publicized his findings on the
chemical reactions taking
place within the body which
gave rise to that particular
feeling of exhilaration asso- ,
ciated with a kiss.
Today, with its fast moving
pace, has speeded up the preliminary preparations for a
kiss. . ';■'
What once took a year of
hopeful anticipation now takes
ten minutes of competent
practice. Kisses come off the
assembly line as fast and as
frequently  as  cars.
As the human body grows
immune to certain stimuli,
such as the head cold, after
long periods of exposure, so
it grows immune to kissing.
In short, when you kiss today you are doing field work
sin psychology and metabolism.
The foregoing was researched from the Brunswicken article 'What's in a Kiss?" (or)
"Who's he analyzing now?".
It's funny they should mention my  two majors. Page   Four

Lets see what it looks like
. . . televise an execution
By ALLAN DICKIE
The Ryersonian, Ryerson Institute
- Now that the uproar over the execution of
Caryl Chessman has died down, North Americans seem to be renewing their old attitude
towards capital punishment.
- The majority will decide one way or the
othgy, only when they feel strongly enough
about the subject. There is one way to arouse
p,ublic opinion.
televise an execution.
T realize this solution has its limitations.
It would be difficult to make the viewing
compulsory for all those over the age of sixteen. But if a supposedly civilized society is
to take full responsibility for its actions in
the taking of human lives, we should all
realize what is involved.
Probably, people would be so sickened by
what they saw, they would force the governments to abolish capital punishment.
There are few humane ways to take a life.
Electrocutions often take several minutes.
Witnesses say the most vivid memory gleaned
from observing an execution is the smell of
burning flesh. Humane, eh?
Chessman was poisoned in the gas chamber. That is the Californian way. It takes a
few minutes, although the victim is unconscious after the first whiff and, supposedly,
feels no pain. But like every execution, the
victim must face the last months of his life
thinking about it. In Chessman's case it was
nearly 12 years.
Next to the firing squad, (which is frowned
upon in most parts of North America because
it requires the participation of non-professional executioners) hanging CAN be the
most humane form. But a lot depends on the
hangman. ,
The weight of the man, the size of the
knot required, and the length of the drop
must all be taken into account. A miscalculation anywhere, and the condemned slowly
strangles to death.
Of course, it would require plenty of close-
up shots and a delicate sound system for full
effect.
You think it's sadistic? Possibly, but what
other way is there to get people to face the
question?
In my opinion all murderers are mentally
unbalanced, at least at the time the crime is
committed. To execute a murdered after he
commits his crime serves no useful purpose.
Statistics show that the number of murders
committed in areas where the penalty is life
imprisonment is no higher than in areas
where the death "penalty is invoked. So execution is not a deterrent. Murderers coul4 be
useful if they were taught some craft while
they served a life sentence. Besides they usually prove to be model prisoners.
And, because juries are human, it's always
possible to execute an innocent man.
C/S integrity returns
with election  of JFK
The   Ryersonian
Ryerson Institute
For the first time in .eight
years, America and the world
can look forward to a bright
and prosperous future. The
election of Sen. John F. Kennedy to the Office of President
means more than simply a
change of government in the
U.S. It may well mean a return to standards of decency
»nd honesty in international
jplitics and a subsequent regeneration of Christian principles in this wonderful de-
1 Biocracy of ours.
: The word "politics" has become an evil word in our society, due to the wiles of opportunistic statesmen and the
sjpread of unprincipled practices in oUr society. Corruption,
coercion'and cunning have become the Big "C's''' that have
puled our lives. It is refreshing to see a young man at the
feelm of 6Ut democratic ship of
state that will lead us without
resorting to this new-morality.
, Kennedy has been called
"naive" by his opponents.
Since when has naivete become
an evil quality in our society?
Naivete in its original sense
means simplicity and lack of
,guile, qualities that are. almost unknown in present-day
politicians. Christ himself was
naive in this sense. Abe Lincoln, one of the fathers of the
American Nation and martyr
to freedom of race, had this
inherent simplicity of character.
Kennedy is an American in
the truest, most profound sense
of the word.. His courageous
rescue of survivors of his shhp
during the second World War
is an example to the world of
self-sacrifice and devotion beyond the call of duty. His exemplary record as a lawyer
and later as a Senator, is something that Americans can look
to with pride.
Above all, he embodies the
basic ideals of democracy and
the equality of all men. Though
accused of being "born with a
silver spoon in his mouth"
Kennedy is no spoiled child of
fortune. He fought beside his
fellow Americans in the last
World War and expected no
privileges. He has worked hard
to achieve his present position
and has proved the American
tradition that anyone can be
President. He and his beauti-
fulwife and child live simply,
without the ostentatious opulence that has marked many
of his predecessors. Americans
will remember with warmth
his reference to his coming
baby in his victory speech.
Even in his moment of triumph,
he did not forget his place as
loving father and head of his
family.
Jack Kennedy has received
the whole-hearted approbation
of the American Nation. It is
our duty to support him and
give him the opportunity to
his rightful place among the
men that made America great.
Oh ? ?
"That is a very complicated
thing . . ..This is so complicated
that you have to go—you try
to lay out a program, a plan,

got it here, if you go here you
have to defend it from that,
you have to move over there."

COMMENT
Edited by
KEITH BRADBURY
Sheaf sahl:
Naughty, naughty Ubyssey
The 'Ubbyssie" a really, really under-graduate newspaper, has produced yet another puerile effort. In its latest,
it describes in gory detail an incredibly drole stunt performed by those 'wascals', the engineers.
It seems that a towing company in Vancouver has taken
to following behind the campus parking commissionaire.
When he tickets a car parked illegally, the car is hoisted and
deposited in the clink, where it can be redeemed for a high
ransom, about ten dollars. Now the clever engineers, in mocking this towing company, chose a motto which involved a
modification of the name 'Busters'.
Only an infant, and perhaps, the editorial staff of the
Ubbyssie could have failed to have been disgusted by the
motto — and students here well know, it takes a good deal to
disgust this newspaper.

Ed. note:   It's "Ubyssey", if you please.
What did we get out of
Russian students' visit?
The Queen's Journal
Queens University
Just what benefit did any
of us derive from the visit of
a few Russians last week? It
would be quite absurd to imagine that anyone from the
other side of the ideological
fence is likely to be converted
because of such excursions, despite the current Russion stall-
for-time campaign that mouths
the slogans, mutual tolerance
and co-existence.
Is there, then, any real value
in such a visit? We think there
can be, even if it is only a
slightly increased understanding of how the Communist mind
works. We could see they were
deadly serious and sincere in
their   beliefs,    that   they    feel
(just as we often do) that their
material accomplishments and
progress serve to justify and
verify their faith in their system. We should realize from
watching these Russians that it
is still the greatest task of the
west somehow to convince the
east that the capitalist system is
not headed, as they believe, to
inevitable destruction and a
last-ditch attack against the
Communist world, but that it
will endure. We must convince
them that the capitalist system
is not based on class conflict,
that it does not contain within
itself the seeds of its own destruction, and consequently
that the Marxian view of history is mistaken.

"Stardust" dance Saturday
Frosh Week ends with
dance in local hotel
The Stardust Ball, the annual dance sponsored by the
Frosth Undergraduate Society, will be held Saturday evening
February 4. ;
HERE THEY ARE! THE FOUR GUYS! Singing at the frosh Dance Stardust Ball Will be this newly
discovered quartet. Here they are pictured in front of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The exciting group will entertain at the Stardust Ball immediately after their week-long appearance at
Isy's night club in downtown Vancouver.
Inter-faculty song contest
temporarily postponed by FUS
The Inter-faculty Song Fest
■which was fo have been sponsored by thfel|t0sh Class as part
of Frosh Week has been indefinitely   postponed.
The main reason for the postponement was the problem of
finding a suitable hall in which
to hold the contest. Before the
Frosh Council was elected both
the Brock and th# Armories
had been booked for Thursday,
February 2 at noon.
- It had. been decided by the.
Undergraduate Societies Committee that the annual fest be
held during a noon hour because of the failure of last year's
which was held in the evening.
A heavy snow storm reduced
the audience to almost nothing.
"As each song team sings approximately ten minutes," said
Frosh President Bob McConnell," the songfest must be held
on a Thursday. We are not
blaming the people who have
booked the buildings, the fault
^ties with the timing of Frosh
Week, something neither the
Council nor these people had
anything to do with."
"It is hoped that the songfest may be rescheduled for
sometime in mid-February,"
added McConnell.
The Frosh song team has been
practicing for several weeks
and is rapidly perfecting selections from The Music Man. The
team has been coached by 'Dr.
Slind' a member of the UBC
Music Department.
The Faculties of Nursing and
Education are also forming
teams to sing in the contest.
The Aggies, while not entering
the song fest, had promised to
make their presence heard by
contributing a musical comedy
routine.
Janet Owen, Vice-President of
the Executive Frosh Council,
said that in order to add variety
to the inter-faculty songfest,
any interested groups or greek
letter societies would be welcome to participate. "This
would give such organizations
as the Russian Glee Club, and
the excellent theological cdl-
leg choirs a chance to compete
against one another," said Miss
Owen.
When a s k e d if a\ lack of
either planning or organization had caused the postponement of the competition; McConnell replied,. "Neither of
these reasons are valid, the action was taken because no suitable place was available at the
required, time."

Ballroom from 9 p.m. until 12
p.m. The after-party will begin
at 12 p.m. and last until 3 a.m.
Sunday morning.
LIMITED TICKETS
"There will be no limit en
the number of tickets sold to
the dance," said McConnell.
"However, a limit of 200 couples has been put on the Mareo
Polo due to its - size. It is -unfortunate we cannot accommodate more, but the Marco Polo
is the largest club of its kind
available."
"Tickets for both events will
be  sold   on   a   first   come   first
served basis," he added.
COMMITTEE HEADS
Terry Richmond, chairman of
Special Events for the Frosh
Council appointed Mike Coleman and- Bob Smith as sub-committee heads for the two dances.
Coleman has arranged the after
party, while Smith is in charge
of the dance.
Three dollars will be the cost
for each couple for each event.
When queried about the overall
cost of the evening, Richmond
reminded the Council that both
prices are below normal for both
the Vancouver Hotel and the
Marco Polo,

the Employment Service only as
a last resort. v'

Four Guys entertain
during Stardust Ball
A half-hour stand at the
Stardust Ball will be one of
the last formal appearances
of a newly discovered quartet, The Four Guys, before
they launch their Hollywood
careers.
• The story of the group's
success is that of a typical
Hollywood  discovery.
They have been singing locally under the name of the
Van Four, and were booked
by Isy Walters to make a
week-long appearance at his
supper club. During one of
their rehersals at the club,
Mr. Walters was talking to
an American  booking  agent.
The agent heard the group,
completely forgot about his
original business with" Mr.
Walters, and asked for some
pictures and tape recordings
of . the    group   -immediately.
The Four Guys could easily
become members of the famous company of qfuartets
currently riding high in the
record and nightclub business. They are four young,
all-Americari-type- boys ,who
not only have the necessary
personal appeal, but also possess excellent voices.
The quartet has aready
developed a distinct and very
enjoyable  singing   style.

Why the fuss?
Through no doing of their own the Frosh Class was both
fought for and fought against at the recent AMS general
meeting. ,^
The battle for Frosh was on the most part waged by
members of the NBC. While some freshmen may belong to
this organization, the Frosh Council had no part or knowledge
of the party's actions. Everyone but Frosh spoke on our
eligibility to run for the Students' Council.
In reality, most Frosh freely admitted that by the end
of the term they do not consider themselves well enough
equipped to serve on a body governing eleven thousand
students. There was no need for the fuss, the Frosh had no
desire for the amendment in the first place.
Imldmus campaign?
■^ Frosh! If you value your lives, remain immune to the
insidious campaign about to be unleashed upon you poor,
unsuspecting innocents. Months of preparation and instruction in all the abominable arts of propaganda, in the bestial
brainwashing of the collective mind Of the cowering masses,
\,in the diverse devilish devices such as subliminal perception and extra sensory, perceptive, telepathic hypnotism;
in all this a hard core of fanatics has been drilled in order
to compel you to come to "Glorious Frosh Week."
If you are overly alarmed by the above -passage, at least
you've realized we're on a new tack this year. In previous
years all oratorical exihortatipns have failed to bring an overwhelmingly tremendous response. Brilliant and/or desperate
pleas seem never to succeed in raising your enthusiasm. So
.we have decided to put a ban on attending any frosh-spon-
sored events. This way, if nobody shows up, the Sacred Cow
(ncil) will take perverse pleasure in a pernicious purge —-
and I'll get it in the neck. Like . . . help!
So please don't take my earlier advice too seriously,

liable   to   that  horrible,   soul-destroying,   and   indefensible
charge of being A|........ C.   Save yourself from this cruel
slur — forget that math mid-term, it won't help you now—

Questions on everything,

be answered by a rectangular
piece of plywood according
to the girls staying in Fort
Camp.
Any visitor is likely to see
two girls, sitting opposite one
another, eyes closed, and both
hands on the pointer, (a piece
of wood that moves to either
"yes" or 'no"). The most common question asked is, "Ouija,
will I be married in four
years?"    ,
This activity is proof of
the cliche, "Girls come to
university for an education."
Most girls have given up their
ouija activities because they
believe passing the year to
be hopeless.
The girls have made some
earth   shaking   predictions:
• Princess Margaret will
not have a child this
year.
• There will be no snow
in January.
• Food Services will not
serve scrambled eggs
next Saturday.
• About half the girls can
expect a happy married
life — the rest will remain frigid.

Frosh carpools
found mismatched
PART OF THE Frosh team rehearses for the now-cancelled
Song Fest. Holding a high note in a song never to be sung at
the Song Fest are Sherry Rustler, linda Chalkland, Madeline
Neil and Carol Crabtree.
A car pool may be defined
as a collection of short tempers thrown together on a
long journey.
Since Frosh are not used to
forming car pools, most of
these automotive horrors are
• created by aroups who happen
to be together at some social
function and decide, "Since
we're all going to UBC next
year, let's form a ear pool!"
No words cah'be more fatal to
the institution of friendship
can ever be spoken.
All is well for the registration period. All-male groups
indulge in playful fist-fights,
all-female groups make catty
jibes about other people, and
mixed groups do whatever is
appropriate for the numbers
involved.
The first breakdown in the
system comes when someone
who has his first lecture every
morning at eleven-thirty realizes that someone else in the
same car has eight-thirties
every morning. A certain
amount of friction is bound to
result when the eleven-thirty
man is dragged from his bed
at some unthinkable hour
every morning for the sake of
his eight-thirty friend—former friend!
At the end of the first term,
some car pools disintegrate,
each component hoping to
find more agreeable companions with another group. But
a change never results in an
improvement. In every car
pool there's one who bitches:
"Why can't we stop on the
way home and get an icecream cone?" or "Why don't
you kids ever let me sing?"
And there's always a budding
Brock-type who brags about
all the new friends he has
made.
Every car pool has at least
one chain smoker and at least
one executive member of the
Anti-Nicotine League of the
Western Hemisphere. Every
car pool has a CHjQM partisan
counter-balanced by a C-FUN
fan. All car pools have at
least ONE rotten driver.
There's always someone who
is unaware of the local geography. A particular case involves the Freshette from
(New Westminster who was
baffled by her car pool's refusal to pick up her new British Properties boy-friend at
eight o'clock on Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Saturdays.
The car pools that survive
the year suffer immensely.
The all-male ones have become mobile brawls and the
all-female ones have descended to hurtling catty jibes at
each other. The mixed car
pools, however, seem to be the
most successful, They continue to do whatever is appropriate for the numbers involved.

Traditions to
be abolished
A frosh versus'frosh debate will be held in Brock lounge
on Wednesday, February 1, as one of the organized activities of
Frosh Week.
Four debaters will clash on
the topic "Resolved, that present
University traditions and procedures be abolished."
Speakers for the affirmative
position are Doug Hager and
Susanne Clarke and their opposition will be the team of Julie
Pearson and Tony Buzan.   -
Hager, as spokesman for both
teams, told the Oddysey, "We
hope everyone will attend as
this debate has won the Independent Clam-Diggers of Spanish
Banks' Seal of Approval and has
been endorsed by the Society for
Prevention of Cruelty to Freshmen."
Hager, a graduate of Upper
Canada College in Toronto, is a
veteran debator. Miss Clarke, his
teammate, is, however, a relative amateur in verbal battling
although she has had experience
in bandying words as a result of
editing    the    award-winning j
"Pearson   Mike"   and   as   a   re- '
porter for the university student '
newspaper, The Ubyssey. i
The negative speakers, Miss '
Pearson and Mr. Buzan, have
been practising vigorously to
make up for their inexperience.
Buzan was reportedly sighted
down on the beach, with pebbles
in his mouth, yelling at seagulls. '
The pair are determined, in the
words of Miss Pearson, "to talk
the hell out of those affirmative
spogs."
Miss Clarke recently threatened both her teammate and the
opposition with a walk-out. "I
was told by Terry that this debate might get filthy!" she sajd "
firmly, "and if it does, I'm sinv
ply going to burst into tears and
then get up and leave."

services
must reform
Most frosh agree that food
services at UBC are rotten.
A few students say, however,
that as far as they are concerned,
"The food is a constant source of
never ending delight and surprise." "Why, I never know
what I'm going to find in the
cafeteria food;" said one. "Today
it was a piece of steel wool in
my scotch broth. I've also found
bobby-pins, hair of varying
lengths and colours, and multitudes of other exciting, inedible
objects."
Students also complained
shout the assortment of food at
the bus stop cafe.
Proposals for improvement oi
food services included a suggestion that a cafe similar to those
in the fifteen-cent stores downtown be set up. "They certainly
have a large selection of different foods on their menus and
I'm sure UBC has a much larger
turnover each day than they
do," commented a student.

Skating party
held at Forum
.: A Frosh-sponsored skating party will be held Monday,

~ Keith Benson, chairman of the
skating party committee said in
an interview that-no tickets to
the affair will be sold previous
to the evening of the party and
that entrance will be gained only
by paying admission at the door.
It is expected that the price of
admission will be no more than
'fifty cents.
The back ice-sheet in the Forum at Exhibition Park will be
used for the party, which will
run from eight to ten o'clock.
Busses will be provided for
students from the campus and
dorms at a cost of forty cents
per person. "Notices about the
bus ticket sales will be put up in
all the camps and dorms," said
Benson. He cautioned, however;
that because of necessary booking arrangements, the bus tickets
must be bought by Saturday,
January 28, and that none can
be  purchased after  that  date. -
Feature attraction at the party will be a clash between the
Frosh and the Freshettes in a
game of "broomball" at half

The   merry,, yet   half - asleep
group  will travel  to  Baker on
' Greyhound busses. The cost will
be $3 return. In order to allow
an early start, the busses will
leave from three different areas.
The points and times of departure   are   6:30   a.m.,   from   Park
Royal and Brock Hall and 7:00
a.m. from Pletsch and Dokka, a
ski shop on West Pender Street.
Equipment    may    be    rented
from either Pletsch and Dokka
or the Ski Shop on Mount Baker.
The prices are about the same
at both shops.
"The present rope tow fee is
one dollar," said Ski Trip Chairman, Steve Maritt. "However,
we • are attempting to get a reduced rate^on both the tow and
the chairlift."
"Lunches    may   be    brought
. along and bag lunches may he
bought   at   the   WaTming   Hut
which is on the mountain.   For
lunches are served in the Mount
Baker Lodge Dining Room." . "
..Diversified activities await all
the non-skiers who dare to rise
at 5:30 and join the exodous to
the snowy heights. A ride to the
top of the mountain costs only
75 cents. A cafe at the top provides refreshments and" light
lunches. The comfort of the
Lodge Lounge is available for
all non-conformists who refuse
to ski. However, it is 'reported
the majority of these people end
up building snowmen.
"The ride home is always the
best part of the trip," said Gary
McDonnell who is in charge of
the transportation. "Many people
are oftentimes in a much gayer
mood than when they left."
"The busses will stop at Sumas
on the-'way down if the passengers so desire. Coming home in
previous trips, we have always
stopped at the infamous Frosty
Inn. I see no reason why these
stops will not be made again,"
said Marit..
The passenger must note his I
place o'f departure when .purchasing; a ticket. Ticket? sales,
which have been handled by the
AMS Office, will end when the
office closes at 4 p.m; on Friday,
January 27.

Students     comment
on   compulsory   P.E.
By COLEMAN ROMALIS
A public opinion poll conducted this week revealed that
half of the students are dissatisfied with the compulsory physical education program at UBC.
Comments   on   the   program, —:	
however, ranged from warm
praise to bitter hositility. A typ-
■ ical sample of opinion expressed is the following:
Tiit Tutti, Arts 2: "Compulsory physical education is beneficial, but some of the courses
are farcical. I don't see what
relation ballroom dancing has to
physical education. The present
program would be more aptly
named Physical Education and
Becreatiori."
WOMEN'S PLACE
IN THE HOME
A woman's place is in the
home, not mucking , arotmd in
man's affairs, concluded three
speakers Tuesday noon during
the second event of Women's
Week.
Stu Robson, Arts 3, the first
speaker, started with a definition   of   a   woman,   "She   is   a
Moe   Donaldson,   Arts   1:    "I
don't think it should be compulsory. I don't mind it, but I
can understand the attitude of
those opposed, especially students who have been out of high
school for a while."
Geri Felch, Ed. 3: "I sure appreciate it. I think it offers
enough variety for the students
to choose an enjoyable activity."
Sandy Innes, Arts 1: "I don't
think it's necessary. I think it
should be available, but not
compulsory."
Karen    Forsyili , Arts    I:     "I
don't like it. It's a waste of
time. The time could be better
spent studying."
Mel Sscfiioss, Arts 2: "I think
it's good. If a person doesn't
participate in sports, he should
be forced to take PE.
Ken Hodkinson, Arts 4: "I
think it is something that should
have been put aside in grade
10, and I think Student Council
should do something about it.
iThe Student Council has been
afraid to act in the past because
they've just been an organ of
the administration."

creature with whom must be
found smaller creatures." He
then continued by showing the
results of having women anywhere but in the home.
"In politics; their rational
concrete natures demand that
everything be put in print. The
result is confusion as in France
compared -with the male stability in Britain," he said.
"Can you imagine a woman
rummaging through your bowels
as if they were her purse," he
said, referring to women in
medicine.
Peter Fraser, Law 3, the next
speaker, questioned why women
leave the home. He came to the
conclusion that they're curious
and "want to do what men do,
'^although they're hopeless at
it." Fraser couldn't understand
why her position, as queen in
the home with a man for a slave,
was inferior to working.
The moderator, Stan Beck,
Law, decided it was time the
woman's voice was heard. He
called Ibby Ogelsby, PE 4, to
the stand. At this point negative
reasoning was replaced by positive woman's intellect. She said
that running a household and
raising her own children was
the height of her ambition.
"A woman is wise to wait
until at least 26 before she gets
marriod because by that time
her husband would probably be
working on his second degree,"
Ibby concluded.

NFCUS asks federal govt
tt>   aid   student   finance
OTTAWA (CUP) — NFCUS
will, present a brief to the; federal' government in February
asking for a: remedy to the
financial obstacles which prevent many students from attending university.
President Bruce Rawson told
delegates to the NFCUS ©ntario
Regional Conference he£e last
weekend of plans to ask for federal assis|aj|^|?tn providMfg 10,-
MQ burJlriesMiE $6*6© each^ i
; There is a "disproportion between occupation groups in society, and their representation
at university," he said. "The top
15 "per cent contributes 50 per
cent of our students; the bottom
20 per Cent contribute only five
per cent." •
He said that it was the belief
of NFCUS "that the federal government can, within the framework of our constitution, assist
in removing the financial obstacles to university education.
To this end we suggest the establishment of a national bursary
system."
There is a great need, he said,
to assure students from low-
income families, that if they
launch a university career, financial assistance will be available   thr o u g h   university   if
needed. The bursaries would be
used to put qualified students
into university if they were not
now able to attend because of
financial need, 'Rawson told tbe
delegates.
Applications needed
for Nf|CUS seminar
OTTAWA —' The stress and
strain imposed upon the individual by society will be the
main topic of the fourth annual
NFCUS national seminar, officially entitled "The. Individual
and Society". The seminar is to
be held at McMaster University
from Sept.  1-8.
Any university student who is
a member of the NFCUS may
apply. The federation's secretariat warned today that applications must be submitted to
local NFCUS chairmen by Feb.
15.
The federation will pay the
expenses of the delegates with
the exception of a registration
fee which will not exceed $30.

Help is coming from several
unexpected sources, including
doctors who have given medical
books from their own libraries,
and people unconnected with
the university who have promised books themselves and
are canvassing friends for more.
Faculty members are searching their collections for unused
books, and the University Bookstore has pledged one thousand
laboratory manuals in Chemistry.
More participation from students themselves is required,
say WUSC representatives.
The most needed are university   science   texts.   Foreign
languages texts written for English speaking students are of less

Boss hits student
qimme" at§ude
. OTTAWA (CUP) — Students
today have a "gimme" attitude
in their demands for financial
support, a former Canadian
Press correspondent told delegates to the NFCUS Ontario regional conference Friday.
William Boss, now publicity
d'rector for the University^ of
Ottawa said, "the obligated-to-
invest-in-pur-youth approach
ploy is actually addressed to
government and business and
not to students."
He believed this had resulted
in a "gimme" attitude and pointed out that at the same time
there was a campaign for 10,000
bursaries, the "universities were
also beseiged by demands for
more parking space." This
seemed that the same organization had two types of demands,
■ and such a situation meant that
"student demands will not win
much public support."
SERIOUS ISSUES
Earlier he said that students
seemed "to be turning their
backs on serious issues, and they
lack responsibility, dedication
and parposefulness." He expressed surprise at the number
of students, "who lack enthusiasm, who cannot get excited
about the issues which deeply
concern them and their welfare."
In conclusion Mr. Boss referred to the NFCUS campaign
for bursaries, "God bless you if
you pull it off, but you are just
not-on a reasonable wicket."
RAWSON REPLIES
NFCUS President Bruce Raw-
son, replying to Boss, said that
in many countries in the world
studets resort to rioting. "We try
to do something constructive
through research and consideration and we are called irresponsible. Do we.hjaye to riot to gain
the ear of the Canadian public
and the university administrations?":
"IV & about time they stopped
calling university students irresponsible. There is a growing
awareness among students, and
it can-be seen in the fields of
education and international affairs," Rawson said.
LOANS UNATTRACTIVE
Referring to the NFCUS bursary campaign Rawson said that
students do not want the money
for themselves, but were- "asking for money to help those students .who are unable to attend
university for economic reas*.
ons.*'
"Has the student the right tcf
put himself $4,000 or $5,000 in
debt when his fafrfily is not
financially secure? We have
loan schemes which are useful,
but do not attract high, school
students; this has been proven,"
he said.

Audience of 2
Rawson speaks on
quiet revolution
By JOAN NEWMAN
WINNIPEG (CUP) — NFCUS
President Bruce Rawson got
more than he bargained for
when he spoke at the University
of Manitoba on the "quiet revolution" of the Canadian university
student.
There were precisely two
people in the audience.
Actually there were nine: the
two Commerce students, a photographer and a reporter who
had to be there, four persons
connected with NFCUS on
campus, and Alan Darling who
said, "I thought I had better
come because I'm having dinner
with him tonight."
Mr. Rawson had just finished
speaking to an audience of 40
at St. John's College. He is on
tour of Canadian universities.
A second year law student at the
University of Saskatchewan, he
is taking a year off to assume
the full time responsibilities of
NFCUS.
- *. -.:*».
QUIET REVOLUTION
"There has been," he said, "a
quiet revolution in the Canadian
University. Students across Canada are beginning to show far
more interest in the problems of
Canada as a whole; they are less
provincial. This is shown in
many ways: by student representation on the Canadian conference on education and Royal
Commissions such as the Massey, Gordon, and Publications."
Without a national office,
these advantages would be completely impossible," remarked
Mr. Rawson, "NFCUS is the
student body with the voice of
the students."

Fog   aids
ski   thief
Theft of ski equipment valued
at $250 from a car in a student
parking lot was reported by a
student Wednesday.
It is believed the dense fog
helped the thief enter and rob
the car of Peter Rolston, Arts
III. The car was parked in "C"
lot.
RCMP Sgt. Glenn Gordon
warned students to lock their
cars to prevent further thefts.
He said that students should
avoid leaving valuable equipment in cars.

Using statistics compiled by
the Dominion Bureau of" Statistics, the National Conference of
Universities and Colleges and
independent studies, President
Rawson presented the financial
background for a year at university.
The average cost to attend for
one year is $1,400. This comes
from three sources: summer
earnings, scholarships, bursaries
and loans, and family assistance.
"A student would have to earn
$475 a month during the 4Vfe
months to pay all his expenses.
Yet only one in four earn $275
a month," he said. He added
that the average summer saving
comes to $500.
Scholarships, bursaries, and
loans contribute about eight per
cent towards the cost of attendance. "About six out of 10 students receive an average of $550
plus room and board from their
parents," Rawson said. The national average for family contribution comes to $700. However,
he declared, three out of every
four children can expect no
assistance.
Concluding the outline of the
NFCUS plan of action he told
the delegates that there was a
profound change of view being
noted in Canada. "The national
loss that is being incurred
through the failure of young
people with talent to go to university is becoming clear."
