The university's student
council charged that NFCUS is
not taking its fair share of responsibility on international issues.
Daniel Coates, spokesman
for the council said a committee studying NFCUS at Sir
George had decided the organization "could not be reformed
from within" to what Sir
George students want.
Council reported that
NFCUS does not compare fav

unions of students.
Coates said that his university was attempting to form a

he said.
"We felt a pressing need for
liason between the provincial

'He charged NFCUS with being able only to make "weak

national and international mat
ters. They are not playing a
full role, he said.
"For an instition of our size,
we cannot afford to benefit,
for example, by the Russian
tour, even though we are contributing to its costs. Therefore NFCUS costs too much
for the services it renders. It
is a luxury for the few,"
Coates concluded.
A federation official said
that over the past ten years,
Sir George Williams had paid
an average fee of $459. Last
year's day enrollment was approximately 1,700.

Wake up
The continuing crisis the world has faced in the past decade
has once again grown to alarming proportions.
The United Nations is in danger of collapse following the
tragic death of Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold.
Things are reaching the boiling point in Berlin.
The USSR will undoubtedly attempt to use the UN crisis
to gain its aims in Berlin a;nd elsewhere.
It has become obvious that Khruschev intends to hamstring
the UN. This is the motive behind his triumvirate proposal.
Now the strong man that held the UN intact through the
last few strife torn years is gone. And the agonizing quest for
a successor has begun.
Undoubtedly a successor will be found. And just as certainly this successor will be a University-educated man.
This fact has a significance that escapes most. It shows that
our leaders do indeed come from our institutes of higher learning.
And to produce them is perhaps the highest purpose of
these institutions.
Matters of this nature have, with the invention of globe-
circling weapons, become a vital concern to all mankind.
And yet, our scholars, or at least the majority of students
at this university, take less interest in international affairs
than scholars of past centuries did.
Most of our students either don't know why they are at
university or admit they are here only for personal gain.
Idealism, compassion for the underprivileged and other such
states of mind are notably absent.
It may be that the only long-run hope for the survival of
our world is an increasing sense of international co-operation
aimong nations—and this in the end means among individuals.
This sense seems to be lacking at this and most other North
American universities—the training ground for our great statesmen.
Peace movements are labelled communist. Nuclear disarmament people are called nuts. Those sincerely interested in
the less glamorous aspects of UN work are though of as fuzzy
thinking fanatics.
This is a fatal set of attitudes.
Too many people think that way. This means that many
•    ^j PeoPle pass up lives of useful work for careers
in fields that will contribute greatly to their own personal welfare (if our world survives) and little to the world as a whole.
There is a great need for able men to sacrifice self for the
concept of world peace and world progress.
Perhaps the present crisis will awaken a few more of the
right people to their obligations in this regard.
If it doesn't then it may well be our last crisis. —FJF

Who were the short-skirted girls parading in front of the
stands at the Grad-'Bird football game last Saturday?
The ones with the megaphone and the colorful totem on
their sweaters?
Cheerleaders? That's what we hear but we'd never know
it by their actions.
True, they did manage to lead a couple of cheers on the
east side of the field and the way they headed for the west side
we felt they would do the same for those of us there.
Their determination seemed to diminish inversely as the
cube ot the distance from one side of the field to the other.
Iney didn t squeek out even a feeble effort.
Seems like our cheerleading brigade is more interested in
being seen than heard.
Letters To
The Editor
"Kid" writer
TW Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Your editorial, "Hey Kid,"
itt the Sept. 12 edition of "Ubyssey" strikes me as being in rather bad taste as a welcome to
the new students, of which my
youngest daughter is one.
Your complaint that the
whole situation is "gummed
up" because of 3,000 high
school children does not make
too much sense. How long
would we have a university if
no high school children w er e
One of the things we can
cherish in our country is the
fact that our children do have
this opportunity of higher education — an opportunity that
was in many Cases denied their
parents. We should not sneer
because they seek it, nor look
down our noses at immaturity.
True, many will fail; true, some
are out for a good time; but
many will become good responsible citizens and some
will make their mark in history.
A little more confidence in
the new students, a trifle less
complacency in one's own superior knowedge would have
led me to believe that the writer of the editorial was a mature person, and not himself
a "Kid."
Yours truly,
Mrs. J. H. PRATT.
Letter Policy
The Ubyssey welcomes
provocative criticisms and
comments in the form of letters to the editor from readers on matters of student interest.
The letters should not exceed 150 words and should
not be libelous. We reserve
the right to edit.
We do not guarantee publication of all the letters received but print at least a
representative sampling on
each topic.
Let's legalize whores'
Is it not time that 'the oldest
profession' was legalized?
Word has it that in the U.S.A.
there are now male houses of
prostitution. This is an improvement, but legalizing the
profession would make it infinitely better. Let us take an im
partial look at the facts.
Our weather and professed
morals being what they are,
we lack streets of curtained-
off boudoirs where kimono-
clad practitioners await your
pleasure. Hence the complications of taxi-middle-men and
other assorted panderers.  . .  .
I venture to suggest that the
girls are being swindled left
and right, hence the customers too. This is a deplorable
situation. But any attempt to
e 1 i m i n a te prostitution (yes,
there ARE some who advocate
this) would be, in effect, an
attempt to revamp our entire
economic system (e.g.; pension
elderly prostitutes and find
work for the able younger ones
and for the middlemen); to
make unavailable what time
and history have proven a necessary outlet for innumerable
libidos—which could result in
a sharp rise in frustrations,
rapes, burglaries, muggings
and murders (i.e. activities
with the 'thrill' element).
It seems inevitable that someone, somewhere, must have a
house (not a home). Our police
have enough to do as it is; chasing speeders and easing traffic
. jams. No—the only sane and
realistic alternative is to legalize and socialize prostitution.
Here are the benefits which
would accrue to our government (i.e. to all of us) should
we move now:
1) An increase in taxes (we
would tax prostitution as we
tax cigarettes and liquor) for
more and better roads, schools
and  foreign  aid.
2) Elimination of panderers
who could be building these
roads and schools.
3) No need to jail prostitutes,
saving us time, trouble and
4) Insurance of no V.D., with
government  inspection.
5) Loss of stigma now attached to prostitutes.
6) Legalize the satisfying of
a n important physiological
and psychological need. Think
of h o w silly it would be if
super-markets were  illegal!
7) Easing of 'exploding population' problem.
8)   Fewer   teen-age   marriages
resulting in divorce.
9) Fewer divorces now due
to dissatisfied husbands or
10) A more realistic and
ope^-minded outlook on the
sociological level where sanity and imaginative action are
sorely needed.
Only those who refuse to
face the facts can disagree. Anticipating then, censure from
conservative, religious or political organizations, I propose
that the Sunday blue laws be
obeyed, i.e., that legalized
houses of prosit ution be run
on a 5 or 6 day schedule.
A nation of hypocrites can-
n o t be strong physically or
mentally. It is therefore in the
best interests of this country
that plans for legalizing and
socializing prostitution should
be seriously considered.
Being a realist, unfortunately, I doubt that any of you will
have the courage to admit that
the idea is not a foolish one
and should be taken seriously.
This is why our divorce and
drug laws are scorned but remain unchanged. Animals who
do not adapt cannot survive.
And as Shakespeare said:
"Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault,
dear Brutus, is not in our
stars. But in ourselves, that
we   are   underlings." Thursday, September 21, 1961

Council   juggles   books,

An accounting juggle by student treasurer Malcolm Scott
will save the AMS about $1,600
in the next two years.
Council approved Scott's
motion to put $125,000 from
students' fees into the Brock Extension building fund to pay off
Alma Mater Society's loan a
year ahead of time.
Originally, the money was
scheduled to be split—$62,500
to the extension fund, and $62,-
500 to the new Student Union
Building fund for the next two
years. Scott said that when the
extension is paid off next year,
the full $125,000 will be diverted
to the   Student Building Fund.

Universities criticized by
profs at NFCUS seminar
HAMILTON (CUP)—Canadian students and universities
were criticized by leading educators during the National Federation of Canadian University Students fourth annual seminar.
Dr. George Grant of McMaster University told the 150 delegates that English-speaking Canadian universities have been
organized for some years in
something deeply prejudicial to
the finding of truth because of
"secular humanism."
Dr. Karl Stern of the University of Montreal said "Secularism in North American universities is a tyrannical form of influence on the souls of students."
Also criticizing the educational system Professor Marcus
Long, University of Toronto
said, "We have the second highest standard of living in the
world and about the lousiest education standard.
"Our universities have become vocational schools for the
training of technologists. Education (should) have one aim, to
ehrich the life of the student by
developing a critical intelligence
Hamilton, Dr. Ronald Hagler
and Rose Vainstein to staff of
the new school of librarian-
ship has been announced. The
school is enrolling its first
class this month.
University gets grant
The University Slavonic Studies department has received a
$5,000 Canada Council grant for
the extension of it's book collection.
Professor James St. Clair-So-
bell, head of the department,
said the grant will keep the University at the forefront of studies in the field in Canada.
Dr. Sobell said the collection
already consists of about 22,000
volumes, many of them purchased on more than $140,000
received in gifts.
. . . but we should not allow
society to dictate what should be
taught   in  the  universities."
Students were also blamed for*
the failure of Canadian university education.
Dr. H. S. Armstrong, McMaster University, said "Students
should develop a sense of integrity .. . and each should recognize his inescapable responsibil--
ity for doing his best as a student
and after he leaves his studies."
To improve university education York University president,
Dr. Murray Ross, suggested that
university fees should be raised
to approximate the real cost of
"The universities should do
this for their own self respect
and to inform the public what
the cost of higher education really is," he said.
Dr. Ross added, however, that
students should have financial*
aid relative to their needs. He
described the present system of
student aid as "antiquated."
The theme of the seven-day
seminar was "The Individual
and Society."

Ed Lavalle, a member of the

"In past years our orientation

Student  probe  favoured
Committee head rejects
joint parking inquiry
Faculty parking committee chairman Dr. A. J. Wood said
Wednesday ihe is in favor of a full scale investigation into campus parking problems—but by students only.
Dr.  Wood  said  he  felt there
would be little value in a joint
faculty-student committee as
suggested by student council
Monday. He said a committee
: made up of representatives of
both bodies would be too cumbersome to be effective.
"A strong, active committee of
three or four should make a
thorough investigation and then
meet with our committee with
their  recommendations."
"I am in favor of a Student
Committee and I'm sure our
Committee will welcome any advice. I would favor a preliminary
committee to look into the situation and see what we have already done."
Members of the faculty parking committee are appointed by
the President and there is no
decision from the committee as
to who will sit on it.
"If the -President wants to put
a Student on the committee he
■will,"-he said.
"I don't favor a joint investigation because we wouldn't get
anything done. Thece would be
too many people working on one
thing. There are already seven
people on our committee.
*'WLth a representative coming
; from  an   active   student   group
we  would   be  able  to   thrash
things out."
The staff has a Parking Committee which presents its problems to the Faculty Committee
i-egularly, he said.

spokesman for  ihe club said.

deeply regret that NFCUS officers were not given an oport-

St. Francis Xavier University of Antigonish, N.S., with-

St. F. X. wasn't getting enough

exclusive jurisdiction of the

"NFCUS has always recognized this fact and has sought
to find a solution, but the
power to solve it is in the
hands of the provinces."
NFCUS is cohesive and unified and speaks with one
voice, until this unity is attacked as it now has been, until
discordant voices are raised
as they now have been. And
NFCUS is in effect, through
its regional groupings, representative of cohesive organizations, until this provincial
cohesion is attacked from within as it now has been."
Council refuses
AARA appeal for aid
Student council won't help the Moral Re-armament movement distribute their literature on campus.
Councillors voted unanimously, with one abstention, Mon.;-
day to tell the group to "follow normal channels of distribution
at the university.
MRA had approached council
for help in distributing its
monthly magazine.
Frosh president Bob McConnell said that if the AMS was to
support MRA other organizations would expect the same.
"We would have nothing to
stop their demands, if we don't
stop them at first," he said.
Treasurer Malcolm Scott said
that normal channels of distribution include direct mail to students and faculty reading rooms.
Arts president Mike Sharzer
quoted newspaper clippings that
said: MRA backed some of Hitler's policies during the last war.
He said council shouldn't give
the group a lead on the campus.
Engineering president Terry
Guest, said that the movement
has money behind them and
could exert influence by building up a club on campus.
He said from that they could
move in an "infiltrate" the university.
The Council also asked the
representatives of the B.C. Committee on Radiation Hazards to
use "normal channels" for the.
circulation of a request for students to send pictures of "smiling children" to major world
leaders   in  an   attempt to   have'
nuclear tests cancelled.

With   the   season   still   three
veeks   off,   more than 35  ath-
etes have turned out for practice.
As a result, there will be
enough players to stock Thunderbirds of the first division
Mainland Senior League; Jayvees, who have been elevated to
the third division; and, officials
hope, a team to be entered in
the sixth division.
The wild hopes rest in the
Thunderbirds. With a first place
finish this season they would
find themselves in Pacific Coast
League company next fall.
'Birds finished third in t h e
Mainland League last year, but
will be without the services of
playing coach Roy Nosella.
Nosella is being replaced by
Joe Johnson, who played for
St. Andrews of the Coast League
last year.
Returning players include the
team's top scorer, Ron Cross,
goalie George Hrennikoff, Stan
Stewartson, Pat O'Brien and
Frank Harrop.
Ed Vlaszaty and Derek Kulai

Veteran Thunderbird lineman George Turpin has received
a feeler from the New York Giants of the professional National
Football League.
Turpin   last week  received
letter from the  Giant head  office asking him if he would be
interested in playing professional football for New York.
The letter in no way constituted an offer, but was only a
feeler, Turpin said. j
Turpin said he definitely was
interested in playing professional football.
*       H-      H-
He said the B.C. Lions had not
yet officially contacted him. He
said no other professional team
has approached him.
The Giants two years ago
signed star UBC lineman Bill
Crawford to a tryout contract.
Crawford passed up a belated offer from the Lions and took the
New York job.
He lasted for more than a
year, the first Canadian college
lineman to stick with an NFL
team. This month, Crawford was
cut by the team, and is now playing for the Calgary Stampeders
of the CFL.
H*       *v       H*
The Crawford signing created
a stir in local football circles.
He was the second standout
Thunderbird lineman to slip
through the grasp of the Lions.
Earlier, Little All-American
guard Roy Jokanovitch was
snapped up by the Toronto Argonauts after being shunned by
the Lions. He was a standout
lineman with Toronto last year,
