Scarfe hits Chant report
ASUS may
soon be
Students of the largest under
graduate society on campus will
hold a general meeting Friday to
discuss the structure and future
of the organization.
Executives of the Arts and
Science Undergraduate Society,
which represents some 5500 students, will propose splitting the
society into two groups: one for
Arts students and the other for
Science students.
Constitutional amendments as
proposed by the Constitutional
Committee of the ASUS Council
will also be presented.
Four steps must be taken regarding the proposed split of
the society:
• Approval at the ASUS general   meeting  Friday
• Adoption of new constitution
by USC
• Approval of new constitution
by Students' Council
• Approval of all Alma Mater
Society members by referendum to ensure voting powers
for- the two societies
The general meeting, open to
all students in the Faculty of
Arts and Science, will be held
Friday noon in Bu. 100.

The following article is a
refutation of the NBC editorial which appeared in Friday's
Ubysey. M*. Riopel deals with
the question in general terms.
For a more detailed examination of the NBC stand, see
John Madden's article, page
The NBC group's objection to
the proposed constitutional amendments is that "the alternate
plan ... is not . . . any solution
to the real problem."
They state specific objections
to the proposals but do not state
what they think is the real problem. Like everyone else they can
describe the general symptoms
of !the problem as the remoteness
of Students' Council from the
general student body, and the
reciprocal apathy of the students
towards Students' Council. But
this is not stating the" problem.
And until it is stated we can asses neither the proposed amendments, nor the NBC groups' objections to them.

Findings  "backward"
and  "short - sighted"
Dean Neville V. Scarfe charged Monday that the Chant
Royal Commission Report is "contradictory and conservative."
Scarfe, Dean of the Faculty of Education, told a large
noon-hour audience in Brock Hall that the commission looked
backwards and is shortsighted.
SOME OF THE ACTION at Farmers' Frolic snapped by alert
photographer George Fielder. RCMP constable is searching
premises for illicit liquids, (Story page 7).
There will be an NBC-sponsbred panel discussion on
the proposed Constitution changes in Bu. 222 at noon
The discussion will be between AMS President Dave
Edgar, Co-Ordinator Russ Brink, and two members of the
NBC party.      .       ; '
Its main purpose will be to explain the arguments for
and against the proposed amendments.
The'names-of thfe NBC members of the panel have not
yet been announced/
He stated that education is a
growth process and it is essential that school work be presented in a creative and adventurous manner in order to make
school an intellectual adventure.
The Royal Commission does
not recognize this approach and
desires to force students into
drudgery, he said.
*rHe said the Commission was
often in error in determining
the' faults in the educational system.
The Report favors harsh discipline in the class-room and feels
that if children are not forced
lack of discipline will result. It
makes no suggestions of ways
in which children can be made
interested in the curriculum and
taught through leadership.
Scarfe believes the Commission has misjudged children in
that it believes they are belligerents — always attempting to
defeat the teacher.
Scarfe said the Commission
did not investigate the conditions under which teachers work
and apparently feels they need
more to do in recommending
more subjective type examinations.
Scarfe feels that much of the
Report will be implemented but
that changes costing money will,
not be.
Scarfe opposes the recommendation for a greater amount of
drill in the three R's. He believes that for the most part,
high school graduates entering
university are well prepared. In
cases of inadequate preparation
he feels the restrictive curriculum is partly to blame.

CAV bandwagon to fight NBC
A new party, the Campus
Association of Voters has been
formed on campus for. the specific purpose of rivalling the
recently formed NBC (New
Blood on Council).
A spokesman for the party
said that the organization,
born on Friday, January 13,
1961, includes members from
Greek and non-Greek letter
societies, as well as representatives from all the political
clubs, and from . both the
science and arts faculties.
The CAV, which will be
running candidates in the coming AMS elections, hopes to
capture enough seats from
NBC to prevent it from exerting a monopoly control on
Council.     With   the   inclusion
of CAV members on Council
they hope to preserve a sane
balance of power.
The Campus Association of
Voters will soon be calling a
public general meeting, where
new members can be enlisted
and party officers will be
The Ten-Point Party Program includes:
1—Get Busters off campus.
Execute a policy of proper
parking, and thus force B

2—Abolish compulsory physical education. Walking
from the parking lot justifies this policy.
3—Support    Food    Services
part:time student workers'
demand for academic credit in the School of Physical Education and m the
Department of Home Economics after completion
of a specified number of
work hours. Dishwashing 100 and Tables 110

4—Take Greeks off Campus
to live undisturbed by student wrath and campus
5—Abolish the position of
Director of Student Affairs. Make Mr. Haar
head of a faculty of student affairs. Grant credits to deserving students
in certain "extra-curricular" activities.
6—Advocate setting up a
Royal Commission to
study proposals for free
higher education.
7—Begin student exchanges-
with Russia. There are
large numbers of students
who wish to come to the

You must judge
'       The day of Judgment is at hand.
The AMS Extra-ordinary General Meeting is now only
two days away.
You have had the proposed amendments to the Constitution explained to you; you have been presented with arguments both for and against; you have had both time and opportunity to form an opinion.
On Thursday you will be asked to express that opinion.
The Ubyssey is basically in favour of the suggested
changes. While we do not believe that the new system would
be perfect, it is obvious to anyone who follows Council affairs
that any change would be for the better; and we feel tlhat the
advantages of this particular change outweigh its disadvantages.
The main objections were well presented by Miss Lorenne
Gordon, representing the NBC party, in her guest editorial
which appeared here Friday.
The NBC stand, however, is disappointingly negative;
changes are necessary, they say, but the new plan "must be
more carefully considered."
This is support from an unexpected quarter for the
"laissez faire" policy which has hitherto conspicuously marked all efforts in the field of student government revisions; a
policy which the Ubyssey has consistently opposed.
This problem has been Under consideration for five years,
and we would suggest that .action is overdue.
In addition; it should be pointed out that NBC is not a
disinterested party. Should the hew system be adopted, they
will only^tie contesting six seats, instead of thirteen as under
the pr$s$ent system.
TiMSir chances of obtaining representation on Council
would, therefore be decreased.
However, NBC has commendably decided that, though it
is aj^inst Dhe proposed amendments, it will not actively oppose them, but leave the decision to the student body.
In view of this, and considering the. general student reaction^ it would seem that the main threat to the proposals is
-not opposition, but TORPIDITY (a mew word for apathy).
:   .    The lack of a quorum at Thursday's meeting would mean
that the proposals wouM be automatically rejected."
It would not be a definite rejection, however; Council -
would be left wondering whether to continue along this line,
or to strike out in an entirely new direction.
It therefore becomes the duty of every student to be at
the meeting and to express his opinion.
Council has made its effort; it is now up to you to make
We do not urge you to get out and vote.
We do say that failure to attend the meeting indicates an1
irresponsible unconcern for matters important to you and to
your fellow-students. —I.B	
New Fraternity
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Iota Rho Beta was formed
by the members of Hut 5, Fort
Camp. We wanted to make it
a perfect fraternity. We realized that we would have to
. have racial prejudice. But we
couldn't have it. Fort Camp
has members of every race. So
we decided to be prejudiced
in favor of the Human Race!
A fraternity must be exclusive. But we want everyone
to belong to Iota Rho Beta. So
we decided to exclude only
those who don't believe that
one human being is as good as
A fraternity must be arro-
gant. With 2V2 billion of
members, Iota Rho Beta can
afford to be arrogant.
Prejudice, Exclusiveness, Arrogance — Iota Rho Beta has
everything. We proudly take
our rightful place among the
fraternities of this campus.
Arts I
Apathy Is Freedom
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In an answer of sorts to Mr.
Hodkinson I question his criti-
cism of our apathy.
You sir. You who say we~
are "dormant, numb, sluggish,
dull, apathetic." You who suggest we elect leaders who ean
lead. You contradict yourself.
Do you not realize , that
"apathy" is the very soul of
our freedom. Do you not recognize that by denying us the
fundamental right to discriminate, by refusing us, the inherent freedom of motion, (be we
dormant, dull or sluggish), you
impose on us a regimentation
far more restraining than any
police state?
Why are we apathetic?: Because we are free; free to act,
think, live, dream and sleep as
we please; because we have no
driving leader, no Hitler to
channel our diffused energy
along any path. Deny us freedom, and yes, you will arouse
us from our slumber, and you
will hear our united voices,
rich and strong, herald an era
of vitality and strength. But
deny usa leader, and we shall
be free.
All progress is a direct result of a denial of freedom.
For both the individual and
the mass, progress comes only
through the direct channelling
of their energies in one direction,  not    through    diffusion.
Sir: the choice is yours.
Sir: IFT is dedicated to free-
dom, we recognize the fundamental right of every  individual to discriminate (though it
be contrary to the charter of
the United Nations),    to.   act,
feel, live,  think,  and channel
his energies in whatver direction he pleases.
We as a fraternity, support
nothing except our right, and
privilege to do as we please.
Sir, if you can recognize the
beauty of apathy, and have the
will to freedom, we invite
you to nothing, join nothing,
say nothing, be nothing, but
think IFT.
Yours truly,
That egragarious collection of ward-heelers and committee-room loafers masquerading as the Student Council is presently straining its collective arm patting its collective back.
Reason: they lhave 'solved' the student government problem.
Giving credit where it is due, the proposed system, which
will be presented to the student body at "an Extraordinary Gen-
sral Meeting", would at least prevent a number of lickspittle
subordinates from attaining that apex of status, the blue blazer.
The piles of deadheads that have built up the pressure in Brock's
Greek cliques over the years (sole purpose — the soft path to
affice) will have to filter back to their faculties and establish
their hold on a more basic level. Grassroots organization in this
field will begin at Spring Rushing functions.
But the change is not fundamentally great. Bureaucrats are
bureaucrats, and the insidiously creeping blight of the blazers
will be soon extended deeper into the very core of the student
body. Imagine, if you will, the effect of this proposed reform
on the undergraduate leader of one of the smaller faculties. See
that look in his eye as the delicious aroma of power wafts gently
beneath his quivering nostrils?
See the leader of Pharmacy chortle as he contemplates his
vote, representing 200 students, neutralizing the interests and
opinions of more than 5000 Artsmen. This, mind you, constitutes
broader   representation!
And the poor Artsmen — please, silence for one minute,
bow your head in remembrance of that quiet, pleasantly dis-
mited, absurdly sprawling faculty. AH those joe-jobs on the
(Vrts Council will be the most eagerly sought after positions on
iampus, for they will be THE road to leadership, power, authority of position, and the good life of Joe College. Election campaigns in Arts, at present so painless and unobtrusive that they
slip by as unnoticed as meetings of the Board of Governors, will
become as bothersome an intrusion as Frosh elections.
Well might you recoil in horror, gentle reader. The future
is indeed most foreboding. At present only the Brock is haunted
with the death cries of political reputations destroyed by Frat.
power-plays, with the reek of dead hopes shot down by inter-
committee memos and AMS Minutes. Think only of tomorrow
when the sour scent of offal and the shrill cries of carrion will
extend their corrosive" influence into every undergraduate haunt
on campus. Y«a verily I say unto you, to the very Barns of Agriculture will the stink and noise prevail; and only the Clubs of
Faculty and Post-Graduate will remain untainted, applying their
rights of extraterritoriality to remain a haven of escape for a
lucky few.
* *        *
The tragedy of this situation is obvious to the reflective individual, but I fear, yea greatly do I fear that the dictation of
Srock will be accepted by the sheep of this campus — those
parodies of the democratic citizen who vote under the sou*-
iestroying but comfortable maxim of 'Father knows best'. But
many people will signify 'aye' on itheir ballot because they think
this the only possible improvement on the Obsolete and villianous
system presently in use. This is simply not so, but in the fiction
is succesful, if it is believed by you out there, the new system will
be adopted; and a more criminal misuse of the democratic plebi-
site would be hard to find in post-Hitler times.
But there is an alternative. A glorious alternative. An inspiring, creative, useful alternative. What this campus needs is a
good shot of Athenian Democracy, a theme which this space has
modestly advocated in the past and clearly suggested to those
hidebound, ironstudded conservatives that imagine themselves—
though totally devoid, of the necessary imagination, courage, foresight and sense of destiny — to be adequate to the nobel creative
artistry necessary to constructive constitutional reform. Let
these fools realize, Oh Zeus, that the spirit of Solon is not enough,
that they need to call upon the ghost of Pericles to draft their
plan for power.
I have no delusions — even divine intervention could not
give these pseudo-Greeks the wit to see what is before their very
eyes. For all. I know they may be unbelievers, honouring not
the Gods of their forefathers; perhaps they resolve the power of
Olympus, aye even of the whole Parthenon ,to the domain of that
single upstart Hebrew. No! We cannot trust them! There is a
job to be done and it must be done by every man on his own
initiative. The Brock must be made to realize that we want not
their slimy reform, that we want the imposition from beneath
of that one true form of government that is a joy to the citizen
and a pride to his community.
Go ye forth to the Extraordinary General Meeting. Gird
your loins and go forth, but go not forth to vote yes or no on
the reform proposal, Stand up and of one voice raise the cry of
Pericles. Call out for your right as citizens—demand an assembly
and a true democracy. Write in Athenian Democracy on every
ballot handed you, and as the scythe nips off the stock, to let
the wheat fall from its imminence, so will your voices fell the
pretenders from their pinnacle of pride. The task is yours. Each
and every one has his responsibility. When the day comes, slaughter a sacrifice to Apollo for courage, and as you go forth hold
high your head, for you know you are a man. Tuesday,January 17, 1961

Clubs Committee President,

best plan and it will be to 'the
New  system  commended
I read Miss Gordon's judgment of the proposed constitutional amendments with interest. She has advanced what
.she and her "New Blood on Council" party consider to be
iour basic criticisms of the proposal. I would like to comment
on her statements.
1. Miss Gordon complains that there would be far too
much authority vested in the A.M.S. President. This is just
£ red herring! The powers of the president, as an individual,
are not changed at all in the proposed amendments!
There is, however, an attempt, which I sincerely hope
Tvill be successful, to form an executive (elected by the whole
student body), this executive to be vested with enough authority to look after the relatively trivial day to day business.
Before I am accused of being another Stuart McMorran, it
should be pointed out that tihe amendment provides that the
executive would derive all its power from motions passed by
the Student's Council of that year. If such power as is given
lhe executive is abused, it can quickly be withdrawn by motion of council.
2. Miss Gordon claims that the new proposal is even less
lepresentative than the one currently in effect. On the face
of it, as each student elects fewer councillors, this might appear to be so, but let us examine the matter a little more
Apart from a very slim minority of students who take
an active interest in student government, of whom Miss Gordon is a good example, most students have a rather indifferent attitude towards Council. They may take a keen interest
in some club or sporting activity, but as long as these pursuits are not excessively interfered with,. they are just not
interested in student government.
With all due respect to the good intentions of Miss Gordon
and her associates, I expect, that were their bid for power
successful, within a very few years N.B.C. would become, as
someone rather astutely remarked, t!he "New Brock Clique,"
a. clique furthermore, which was subject to admission only
through party affiliation.
Under the proposed new system, the student body would
"be required to vote for an executive and one undergraduate
society president only. There would at least be a chance that
the names on the ballot would be more than just a list of
unknown bodies to the general electorate.
Furthermore, every student would know that he very
definitely had a representative on Council, whom he could
see if something concerned him—namely his undergraduate
society president.
Miss Gordon asks for a wider representation on a basis
of numbers in each faculty. This could only be done by making the council even larger (she complains about the larger
council in her fourth statement) or, alternatively, by depriving some of the smaller faculties of their representation.
For tihe last several years there has been a preponderance of
law students on council.
3 & 4. It is argued that the proposed svstem puts too
much responsibility on the undergraduate society presidents,
and that, by increasing the representation on Students Council, meetings would become unwieldy.
Admittedly, the work load of an undergraduate society
president would be increased. But much of his present work
could be shifted to his vice-president, and other members
of his executive, leaving him more time to spend on university matters. Such a move would tend to make the undergraduate societies even more cognizant of the needs of the
whole university community, and would tend to provide a
■wider base from which to draw new student councillors.
In short, I believe that the proposed constitutional amendments provide not only a more efficient, but also a more
representative form of government.
advantage of UCC as the President will have more time to
devote to UCC activities." She
also feels that the new plan
will pose no problem as long
as the liaison between Council
and the interest groups is I
maintained. She foresees no opposition to the new plan from
the clubs.
Fran Charkow, President of
Asociated Women Students,
was of the opinion that the
AWS doesn't now, and never
really did, need a representative on Council.
She also points out that the
number of girls on Council
is likely to be smaller in future. Asked if she foresaw any
large problems with the new
system, she stated, "Yes, will
it work?"
Turning to Athletics, Don
Robertson, President of the
Men's Athletic Association said
that the principal goal of student government was fair representation for every student.
He feels that this is not the
case at present and that the
proposed changes will result in
fair representation for all.
He does, however, foresee
a large problem as far as MAA
and all the other subsidiary organizations are concerned,
that of adequate control by the
He said that if liaison broke
down, Council control would
be greatly reduced. He stated
that there was opposition from
some of the MAA executives
but that he personally thought
the new plan should and would
be passed at the January 19
AMS General  Meeting.
Sidney Shakespeare, president of the Women's Athletic
Association said that WAA's
loss of direct representation on
Council will be unfortunate
but that it will be all right as
long as adequate liaison is
maintained and that some control over the bu'dget is assured to the interest groups.
She said that the proposed
change   was   "inevitable"  and
Two modest proposers
The proposed changes to the
Alma Mater Society constitution are based on the brainchild of two outstanding student councillors.
The councillors are Russ
Brink, co-ordinator, and Ross
Craigie, co-ordinator of publications. -
Brink is a third year law
student and holds a B. Com.
degree. This is his second year
on the student council, both as
co-ordinator of activities.
His duties include supervision of student facilities and
assisting student organizations
would result in better representation for the students as
a whole.
The representatives of athletics and the other interest
groups all stressed the importance of proper liaison between
Council and the interest groups.
Miss Shakespeare specifically
suggested that the President
should not appoint liaison between Council and an interest
group without first consulting
with the executive of that
group and obtaining their opinions, and approval.
It is likely, she said, that an
amendment to this effect will
be proposed at Thursday's general meeting.

NBC proposal answered
We know from previous
statements of the people in the
NBC group that they think the
problem with our student go\t
ernment.is  the   people   in   it.
;They conceive the problem as
;«ne of a small, self perpetuating oligarchy or "family com-
vpact" of fraternity types running student affairs. When the
; problem is conceived in this
way, the solution is obvious—
ehange the hold of the "frat"
Jopys on council—New Blood on
• Council!
But does the problem really
lie with the people who are on
Students' Council or in its
structures? My own conclusion
.is that it is the latter. No one
could accuse Chuck Connaghen
or Ben Trevino of being conformists. But still their administrations saw the same problems of student apathy as we
,had in Dick v Underbill's year
and   in   Ron   Bray's   regime.
.These men were all strong,
competent leaders with mature
judgment.   Why  couldn't  they
"engender interest in and enthusiasm for student affairs—
lack of communication.
The malce-up of Students'
Council works against, rather
than for, good communications.
Some of the council members
are chosen to perform specific
functions and in carrying out
their duties do not have any
permanent channels of communication with' the student
body. In this group are the
President, treasurer, secretary,
co-ordinator of activities, the
PRO, and even the EIC. Other
councillors represent "activities" and have only limited
means of reaching the general
student body because they represent only those students; who
participate in the activities. In
this group are the UCC chairman, WAA, MAA, AWS chairmen. A few councillors are
elected to council as general
representatives—the vice president, and the members-at-
large. But once elected these
councillors find they, too, have
no permanent channels of communication with the general
body of students. The only person on S.C. who has any regular means of getting a wide
consensus about the feeling of
the campus "is the USC chairman. Of course, the Ubyssey
Editor can send out his reporters, but even this is limited as
a regular means of tapping student opinion. It is no wonder
S.C. is accused of being "remote."
Interviewed yesterday about
-the    proposed    Constitutional
-amendments,    AMS   president
Dave Edgar stressed the flexi-
ibility of tile new system.
While the formation of the
'.Council  would, foe fairly  well
•set, he said, it would be able
.to develop its own procedure
to fit its needs.
:    For instance, he said, Council as a whole would have to
• decide just how much power it
.wants to  give  to  the  six-man
He felt that this would pre-^
vent the Executive from taking
too much power to itself
against the wishes of the other
Edgar stressed that this
scheme is by no means considered the final answer to problems of student government.
He thought that this system
should work for a student body
of up to, say, 18,000; but that
after this number had been
reached, a more representation-
Anyone familiar with the
fundamentals of good organization knows that a two-way
exchange of ideas, information
and opinions (communication)
between the decision makers
and those affected by the decisions is a prime necessity. When
an organization is small,, informal arrangements can be effective. But when a society gets
as large as our 11,000 member
student body, permanent means
of communicating that are as
direct as possible become a requirement.
Without the means of continually sampling student opinion, even the most zealous New
Blood on Council will find himself hamstrung in his endeavors to create a rapport between
S.C. and the  students.

Good Women a hit

Under the-proposed constitution changes, second year students would have no say in the
election of their faculty representative on Council,
This is because of the present
system of electing undergraduate presidents.

will have already been elected.
AMS co-ordinator Russ Brink
conceded it was "a valid objection" to the proposed amendments, but did not think it was
a serious one.

with  an original  musical  score

the most interesting productions
ever presented on the campus.
The music, written by Eliot

well-known Vancouver conductor John Avison, keeps the
mood light and fresh.
Don't be fooled by the first

The stage setting was designed

by Norman Young. These two
combined talents produced a

Teachers needed
Probably the best way to welcome delegates from Future
Teachers' Clubs to the Campus is to explain why and how Teacher
Education is a necessary function of a university, and why teachers
need to enter fully into all aspects of university life.
A university has the dual function of promoting the critical
sudy of all that is finest and best in the culture of our nation and
the world, and of discovering and applying new knowledge.
The emphasis in the Faculty of Arts and Science is that ol
providing the critical study of accumulated knowledge, whereas
the main purpose of the professional faculties is that of making
sure that knowledge, skills and artistry are applied in creative and
constructive ways to the improvement of society.
In actual fact the Faculty of Arts and Science and the professional faculties tend to perform both these functions. There is
simply a slightly greater emphasis in the Faculty of Arts on the
study of our heritage, while the professional faculties are somewhat more creative in training university students to serve the
community around the university.
A teacher has a very specialized function in the community
because all children are compelled to go to school and, therefore,
all must come in daily contact with a teacher. Doctors see children
sporadically only when they are ill, dentists when their teeth need
attention, the plumber comes only when the house has leaking
pipes. Furthermore, the teacher is required by society to help future citizens to understand all the world around them. The only
other institution that studies the world around us in great detail
is the university and so university training is specially necessary
fOr teacher preparation, particularly that kind of university education which provides a wide background of knowledge and stimulates thinking about society at large.
A teacher will be dealing with children from all walks of life
whose parents are in every type of occupation. A teacher, therefore, needs to know a great deal about various occupations anc'
about the home backgrounds of children. A university brings
together students from all types of backgrounds and from homes
where a great variety of occupations take place. Thus at a university a future teacher has the opportunity of mixing with a great
variety of people who are studying a great variety of subjects.
Students come from all over the world. Nowhere else in our
province is there collected so many, people with such a wide background from whom it is so easy to learn about the world.
A university should train teachers because all its students
come through our school system, and if a university wishes to
receive well-trained students, it must somehow take care of the
training of the teachers between the teachers in schools and the
students and teaehers in a university.
Our schools and our children deserve the best teachers they
can get and the best way to train high quality persons is to have
them exposed to the variety of cultural influences which are collected together on a university campus—its library, its music, its
art, its high quality students and professors, its social life and its
athletic activities.
Teachers must go to a university, not simply to know more
mathematics or. science, or history, or English, but in order to
become mature, cultured individuals with wide understanding of
the world in which we live and a mind that is trained to be critical, responsible and wise. [
Teachers cannot be properly trained and educated for their
important duty in society in one or two years of attendance on
campus. Teaching is a strenuous, exacting task which owes its
stimulus to variety and novelty of approach, and to the enthusiasm
and subtletly of the teacher. It is both a science and an art. There
is no simple direct way of persuading future citizens to want to
think critically and profoundly for themselves in all circumstances.
There is nothing easy about cleverly guiding the learning
activities of a widely differing and easily excitable group of
human beings. The intricacies and compexities of the educational
process are not learned in a few months. Good teachers are produced only after a full university education which includes plenty
of opportunity for imagination, creativity and wise application of
science and artistry to the needs of society.

Mr. John Haar. Director of

his policy .with regard to the
proposed changes in student government was one of non-interference.
Mr. Haar said he was a firm

and it will not be long before the present system is inadequate."

CULF member Jim Fleming,
head of the Toronto party, felt
that the scheme was a "negative
approach to the problem," but
"a step forward which the Progressive. Conservatives are certainly incapable of taking."
CULF vice-president Fred Livingston disagreed with Fleming
on whether or not the plan
would set  up  a  means  test.  He
said he believed free education
might come eventually and indicated he would not be opposed
to it so long as such "welfare
did not destroy the initiative of
he individual."
Western vice-president Tex
Enmark, UBC, agreed. "I believe
a fellow should have to work for
what he gets,' 'he said.

Affluence is
big problem
Dr. Stuart Jamieson of the
Economic Department discussed
Kenneth Galbraith's "Afflence
Society" Monday at the CCF
club meeting.
"Although the majority live
above subsistence conditions
and are in the leisure class, today's affluence society has special problems of its own.
"Because this majority has
acquired basic needs, artificial
things are being produced by
manufacturers like innumerable
gadgets, and the expansion of
excess advertising is increasing.
Rapid change of style in the case
of the automobile tends only to
create new needs," said Dr.
"It is inevitable that the national economy in public and
not private sector will be emphasized if the strains of the affluence economy become dangerously serious," concluded Dr.
around a plan to reduce the present council to six members and
make the presidents of the sixteen under-graduate societies
council members. "The advantages of this are fairly obvious,"
said Meekison. "The council
would represent a better cross-
section of the student body." He
also indicated the new government would be more efficient.
When asked if he thought the
new amendments would be passed, he would not make any predictions. "Most of the opposition to the plan stems from
people who are wary of or resent changes of any sort." He
flatly denied Miss Lorenne Gor-
dan's charge that the new constitution would place too much
power in the hands of the AMS
"Of course if the proposed
amendments are passed, there
will be minor technical difficulties which would, in time,
iron themselves out."
One example of these difficulties is, according to Meekison,
the natural provincialism of tfie
Undergraduate Society presidents. "They would soon learn,
however, to act in the best interests of the Alma Mater Society as a whole."

American policy
Despite a cold, -persistent drizzle, students of UBC joined
in two large picket lines last Saturday protesting American
actions against Cuba.
Students and young workers,
"Sympathetic to the aims and
direction of the Cuban revolution" and "concerned with the
■wair-provoking actions of the
.U.S. government against Cuba,"
carried signs reading "Trade —
Don't Invade" . . . "Hands off
Cuba" ... and "Now the Cubans
own Cuba. So?"
- One girl, who had heard of
the demonstration over the radio, sketched a picture of a smiling, jubilant Castro on a cardboard and marched with it for
an hour in the rain.
Among those observing the
proceedings, which took place
outside the American Consulate
at Georgia and Burrard Streets,
were three or four police cars.
The marchers, numbering well
over 60, were hailed diversely
by passerbys. Some joined the
march, talking eagerly with the
picketers. Others jeered and
thumbed their noses. There were
comments . . . "Where are your
beards?" . . . "Keep it up!" . . .
"Crackpots" . .". and "Bravo!"
The demonstration, less anti-
American than pro-Cuba, was
orderly and cheerful.
Balderson voted
new CCF president
Third year Arts student James
Balderson has been elected CCF
House leader for this year's UBC
Model Parliament. He succeeds
CCF club president Bill Piket
in the position.
In his speech to CCF members in Bu. 205, Balderson
charged that last year's Liberal
parliament had degenerated the
annual institution into a drastic
waste of tim^ in a series Of obscure speeches from the government bench.
"The CCF recognizes the
need to raise the dignity and
importance of the Model Parliament," Balderson told the
meeting. "Last- year the CCF
proposed a seriously designed
bill to provide centres for the
treatment and rehabilitaiton of
drug addicts.
"The bill was accepted by
Model Parliament and proved
to be the only constructive legislation proposed and accepted."
Balderson urged students to
take an active interest in campus politics and to closely examine the different programs of
political action.

Ubyssey Rushin Editor
Campus financiers and internationalists had better rush
down to any of the large downtown banks dealing in foreign
exchange and cash in their roubles.
The Soviet News Bulletin
reports that on January 1 of this
year, the new rouble was put
into circulation and currency
now in circulation will be replaced by new.
The new currency will be replaced at a ratio of one new
rouble to ten old roubles. The
new currency consists of USSR

Pacific not U.S.
says Asian head
"The Pacific is no longer a U.S. lake," said UBC's new director of Asian studies.
Speaking on East Asia and the Balance of World Power in
the Auditorium last Wednesday, Dr. William Holland stressed
that factors such as the rise of Communist China, the growing
nationalism in smaller Asian countries and the surge of antiwar sentiment in Japan have forced the U.S. to make undreamed-of concessions in the Pacific area. I

The Far-East situation has
been tragically misjudged by the
West," he said. "Few Westerners realize the extent to which
Asians look to Communist
China as an example of swift
industrial advancement. China
herself is acutely aware of this,
and has arranged for exchange
of students and technicians.
Americans, unless they wish
smaller countries to look to
China for guidance in industrial
achievements, should promote
the methods by which Japan
has leaped ahead in recent
years, as an alternative."
Dr. Holland also said Japan
was breaking away from her
position  as  a  U.S. satellite.
"Trade is rapidly advancing.
The anti-war sentiment in Japan
inspired by the Hiroshima bomb-,
ings, and the vigorous spirit of
rising nationalism, are all combining to cause Japan to take a
more independent stand," he
"Eastern Asia, and Communist China in particular," concluded Dr. Holland,, "are of
monumental Importance to the
future. The efforts UBC is making through its Asian studies
department towards the understanding of this vital section
of the world is an important
and  excellent  thing."

Please girls, stop throwing those eggs. I promise not to
write anything so near the truth again.
Talking about eggs and truth
here is the scientific outdoor
sport I promised you. It's something I cribbed from The Village
Square, a column written by
John Wilcock for the Village
Voice, who in turn had picked
it up from the New Scientist,
an English magazine.
The sport consists of throwing
eggs over a house onto a soft
lawn and then seeing if the
egg has broken. Don't get discouraged;  it's not supposed to.
One of the rules of the game
is that you don't throw them
over my house.
This sport should come in
handy for the Village folk as
they are now having trouble
with the New York police about
eabaret   cards   for   performers.
The   science   is   explained  in
the following letter.
Sir:  -
Examination of the physical
structure of an egg demonstrates
clearly that it is designed for
atmospheric flight, with precautions against damage under conditions of abrupt deceleration.
This is perhaps an evolutionary relic of a period when eggs
were laid on the wing, before
the present decadent habit of
nest-building developed.
The external form of an egg
is a perfect example of streamlining, which affords minimum
air-resistance and maximum
aerodynamic stability when the
egg is traveling. through air at
subsonic speeds.
Internally,  we, find  a   cham
ber filled with readily compressible gas, at exactly the point
where it is required to combat
the deformation caused by the
impact of the leading end of the
egg on the grass.
The remainder of the contents of the egg are not homogeneous, but consist of a spheri-'
cal mass, the yolk, suspended by
elastic supports in a viscous
medium of lower density.
This arrangement, providing
both viscous and elastic damping, is ideal for the dissipation
of the energy of impact.
Mr. Griffith's failure with an
egg dropped from 3 ft. 6 in. is
amply explained by the fact
that with such a short drop there
was insufficient time for his
egg to assume its correct flight
orientation, or for internal equilibrium to be established.
This failure is hardly surprising for what bird would ever lay
an egg SIDEWAYS from a mere
3  ft.   6  in.?
— H. G. Morgan
Dawlish, Devon
Well, that takes care of the
eggs and science of the matter.
The truth is I'm too chicken to

lawn around here after B & O

Ice-Birds defrost Montana
Parker, Utendale lead
UBC in runaway wins
Hockey coach Al Stuart's hard-skating opportunists, the
1961 UBC Tfhunderbirds, hustled their way to a 15-7 victory
over Montana State University Saturday night at Chilliwack.
THUNDERBIRD CENTER stick-handles up ice as left-winger Dennis Selder (no. 12) looks on. Sel-
der scored 2 goals on Friday night, and added 2 assists on Saturday.	
The game, played before a
large crowd, ran hot and cold;
with the goals coming in rapid-
fire volleys and occasional lapses into ragged, sloppy hockey.
UBC  had  easily  skated  over
,the travel-weary Montanians 9-1
on Friday, and    in    Saturday's
game, Stuart had injected many
JV's into the lineup.
Four of the victor's goals
were scored by a slight, dipsy-
doodling centre named Bob Parker, who looks more like a ballet dancer than a hockey player.
John Utendale, a hot-shot
Negro centre, scored 3 goals and
assisted in 3 others. This was
his second hat trick of the weekend.
The Birds  played good  positional hockey  for  most  of the
game, but, at times during the
second period the man in front
of the goal was not there. They
used  a clearing  system similar
:   to that of    Les    Canadiens; the
;   quick break up the right side.
The white-sweatered Montana
team consists entirely of Cana
dians (mostly from Alberta).
They have had trouble getting
support, from their university,
because there is no league available for them to compete in.
Coach Stuart felt that Montana had been plagued by bad
luck in their games, in sharp
contrast to the Birds who were
Johnny-on-the-spot most of the
night. The Bird's spare goalie,
Ken Smith, was apparently having a bad night, allowing 7 goals
against only 11 saves.
Montana opened the scoring
but UBC came back with 4
straight, by Benson, Parker,
Smith and Phillips. Montana
replied, to make the first period
score 4-2.
In the second period, Strother
scored, then Montana made 3
straight, and then UBC, by Parker,  Utendale and Benson.
UBC celebrated the last period
with 7 straight goals, by Parker,
Owen, Singh, Owen, Parker,
and 2 closers by Utendale. Montana scored one more.
C.LA.U. looks to Manitoba
The University of Manitoba
is continuing to perplex and
hinder the proper functioning
of the WCIAU. Manitoba will
not field a football squad in
in 1961. A quote from the
last WCIAU annual meeting
immediately points to difficulties . . . "effective September
1961, that football shall be
compulsory in order to participate in WCIAU competi
tion." This motion was passed.
With football, other sports
were grouped as Compulsory
to remain in the union. What
chance does organized sport
have if committed teams withdraw their entr jea a|ter«,seheid-
ules have been*macte?
The most pressing problem
created bjrjflanitoba's action is
to fill UBCs as well as the
prairie team's empty spaces in
the schedule. This involves the
finding of some U.S. team to
play ball with, and then reshuffle not only UBC's schedule, but also that of Alberta
and Saskatchewan. Most
American teams plan their
games two to three yea£S
ahead  of  fhe  season.
This May the WCIAU will
decide its own future but at
present all members are still
bound by their five year agreement. In case the present
union does fold up, the other
two prairie■-.. teams will be

farcical and entering into an
agreement with Montana and
North Dakota would be too
costly for the Canadian colleges.
Even if the WCIAU remains
in existence, it will probably
never produce good football.
Firstly, there will only be
three teams competing for a
cup and secondly, teams-playing U.S. colleges will, of
course, have to make the
switch to American rules for
certain games.
If UBC goes back to the
Evergreen Conference,^Canadian College spirit wjjuld suffer and the $10,00# travel
costs which the UBC teams r*£
ceive at tbe present moment
would be cut off.
Much is at stake in the developments up to and after the
outcome of the annual meeting in May of this year.

If you have never watched broomball, you have missed a
good joke; if you have never played broomball, you have missed
the punchline.
For the uninitiated, broomball is played without skates, with
a broom and any kind of ball (eg. rugby ball) on a hockey rink
The number of players on a team is as unsure as the footing
There is neither rule nor rhyme, and unlimited time. The objei ■
of the game is to get the ball, by fair means or foul, into the op
ponent's goal.
' Saturday, in Chilliwack, The Ubyssey was challenged to <i
broomball match by the ISC (Ineffectual Sweepers' Club). Needless to say, the Pub won. ISC was humiliated 2-0, both goals coming
from the broom of sports staffer Chris Fahrni, whose illustrious
account of the half-time entertainment you see over there by your
left thumb.
The issue was never in doubt; as the Pub made a clean sweep.
Although the score was significant, it was not particularly important. The game was highlighted by its many hilarious moments,
if you think falling on your tailbone is hilarious. That match produced more spills than an inebriated waitress carrying trays of
Now, it looks easy to run around on ice after a ball, but in
practice it is considerably more difficult. If you think neolite soles
are slippery on a freshly waxed floor, wait until you try them on
frozen H2C. Everyone makes the occasional slip-up, of course, but
on ice, you always seem to slip-down.
And to compound your troubles, try swatting at a sliding rug-
jby ball with an unbalanced broom. That'll put you on ice for a
while. Actually the funniest part of it is the slow-motion effect—
it takes many precarious seconds to reverse enginfes and head after
the ball.
Witness one unidentified ISC player, reportedly a part-time
janitor, who prided himself in a stylish backhand shot which he
learned while sweeping under desks. When he tried the manoeuvre
on ice, however, he forgot to tell his feet what he was doing. He
missed the ball and flew headlong to the ice, his nose carving a
nice little furrow in the cold surface.
The ISC villian, a traitorous Pubsier, met with an early, er
.. .downfall. Charging full speed down the ice, he tried to reverse
his direction. He discovered his mistake too late, and, feet churning and arms flailing, another ISC bit the ice.
^   Even the sure-fboted Pubsters. who had taken the precaution \
of wearing thick-treaded rubbers, were not without their ups and

• He got up quickly, however, and ruthlessly boarded an ISC
pliayer who was trying to regain lost footing. The player crumpled
against the boards, a ghastly grin on his face. McAfee immediately
took off after the ball, and' just as immediately tripped over the
fallen ISC man's broom.

over an inept Mt. Pleasant Legion team. Led by playing-coach
Roy Nosella with four goals and
Ron Cross with three, the team
was never threatened by the
out-matched legion squad.
At half time the Birds led by
the one-sided score of 6-0 on
goals by Cross, and Nosella. They
slowed down in the second half^
scoring only two goals while
the  opposition tallied   one.
The Birds defense is at its
peak and its offensive threat is
becoming a threat in the

the team has a good chance of

U. of Washington Daily Reporter
SEATTLE — The United
States retains Guantanamo Naval Base, among other reasons,
to frustrate Russian and Red
Chinese schemes of dominating
Cubab, in the opinion of Dr.
Charles E. Martin, professor of
international law.
Blocking "the plot helps to
guarantee America's protection
and also Cuba's right to home-
owned government, he adds.
Moreover, the policy has legal
"It has to be remembered that
the treaty is with Cuba, not Castro. Ordinarily Castro could
denounce it. But in this case
the treaty stipulates that Cuba
cannot break it without the consent of the United States."
Self-interest dictates .withholding that consent. If this opposes Catro's aspirations, the
policy amounts in pari to protection of Cubans from their dictator, Martin asserted.
He dissented with the opinion
of Oregon's ex - Congressman
Charles Porter and other Americans who favor releasing the
"I think it's reasonable to
assume thai, if we get out of
Cuba and let the base go, due to
the affinity between Castro and
the Russian and Chinese Communists, one or both of them
would be in.
"That is just something we
cannot permit. If it came to
their going in, we would have
to move in ourselves."
Such military action, Martin
said, would violate the charter
of the Organization of American
States and compound our plight.
"The Guantanamo Base is the
only restraint we have against
the eventuality of Russia and
China moving in. As long as we
have the base and the troops
there, they won't. So. I think
the congressman is dead wrong."
Most Americans also oppose withdrawal, Martin thinks.
We're in a jam in Cuba and
we shouldn't surrender any of
the resources that we have to
prevent the situation from getting worse."
He terms Guantanamo a resource.
