■*vS«eb graats will be made on
the basis of merit and need,"
read the Governor - General,
"with the objective in mind of
ensuring that no student will be
denied a university education
because of financial reasons."
The speech also mentioned:
• Strengthening of Commonwealth ties by the establishment
of a Commonwealth court.
• Continuing support for the
United Nations.
Women win grant
for new epuipment
Student Council has awarded the Women's Athletic Assn.
a 15 cents per student levy to
replace equipment and expand
their program.
The WAA originally requested 25 cents per student,
but Council granted the reduced levy contemplating the

arise next year.

Columbia River Dam project.
• National Health Plan and
other social security legislation.
The speech recognized disarmament as "essential to the
achievement of a lasting peace,"
but said any disarmament agreement not binding to Communist
China was ineffective.
Non-asquisition, manufacture,
,or use of atomic weapons either
under separate Canadian control
ox jo|ot US-Canadian control
was also pledged.
Both the speech and Liberal
government were blasted by the
CCF Leader of the Opposition
James Balderson in his traditional reply.
"This is the richest country in
the world and what sort of leadership do we have? Barren leadership!" Balderson claimed.
flourishing a copy of Mac-
p&an's Magazine and quoting
from a story, "How the Poor
Stay Alive in Canada," he suggested" that this barren leadership was leading to "barren cupboards throughout the land."
The Conservative leader replying to the throne speech sat
down, forgetting tp add his
party's amendment. When reminded by the Speaker, Derick
Frazer of his^ oversight, he rose
and said he was "glad to see
that the Speaker recognizes the
need for  an amendment."
The Speaker noted that there
was "no partiality" in his position.
The new system would call
for a Student Court to be set up
under the University Act, receiving its power directly from
Faculty Council.
Under authorization from Faculty Council, the Court could
levy fines up to a suggested
maximum of $25.
At present, Student Court is
set up as a committee of the
Alma Mater Society, which is
governed by the Societies Act.
This Act limits any disciplinary action to the imposition of a
$5 fine, or the suspension of AMS
membership priveleges.
Council is generally of the
opinion that this renders the deterrent influence of the Court
relatively ineffective.
Crawford's proposal provides
for a Discipline Committee similar to the present One, to investigate possible cases to be
brought before the Court, and to
decide whether a prima facie
case exists against them.
A   Prosecutor  and  an   assistant Prosecutor would sit on this'
committee in a non-voting capacity.
The Court would consist of
five Judges, with two alternate
Judges to substitute in case of
absence. S   "
The two Prosecutors and at
least two of the Judges would be
members of the Law Undergraduate Society.
Crawford did not agree with
an earlier recommendation that
the discipline system should be
given  over  completely   to   the -
LUS.      •; i _.-.:■
However, he felt that some
legal representation was necessary to ensure that proper procedure was followed, and that
every defendant received a fair .,-
The Crawford Report was approved in principle by Council.
Before any details can be
worked out, Mowever, Faculty*
Council must be asked to give
its support.

The paper goes on to charge
that the loyalty of UBC President N. A. M. MacKenzie is suspect due to his connection with

The big smear
The sweeping charge of "lax morals at UBC", enunciated
r>y Mrs. Buda Brown in the legislature, is an almost classic
-example of smear and wholesale character assassination.
No names are named; no evidence is produced. Mrs. Brown
bases her attack on a recent campus debate and what she describes as "an immoral questionnaire," never revealed.
The debate in question may have been taken seriously by
Mrs. Brown, but it was not by the students or anyone else familiar with the great tradition of mock debates in universities
around the world.
The topic for discussion was "Resolved; That Chastity is
Outmoded," with two girls for the affirmative and two boys for
the negative—a lineup which would indicate to most sophsti-
cated observers that the whole thing was approached on a
tongue-in-cheek basis.
When, towards the end of this debate, one of the boys mischievously inquired of his opponent: "What are you doing after
the meeting?" she gave what appears to us to be the perfect
answer, placing the whole thing in proper perspective:
"I have argued that chastity is outmoded. However, my
parents have set for me certain moral standards and I respect
their judgment."
For Mrs. Brown to attack 12,000 students on the basis of a
dehate; whose spirit is obviously beyond her comprehension,
is absolutely preposterous. We have seen no evidence that the
morals of today's young people are any worse than they were
ih. Mrs. Brown's day. In fact, we often think that the students
of the 1960's are more mature, more knowledgeable, and more'
responsible than ever before.
To suggest that they ought to be "investigated" and "censored" is utter nonsense. What we really need is more Socreds
With a college education.

Victorious Victoria
We are pleased to see that students at Victoria University
(not College—Vancouver Sun please note) are upholding that
fine university tradition of demonstrating against the government in protest of unjust legislation.
The Sun reports that "three hundred chanting Victoria
College students heaved a car up the legislature steps in protest
Monday against a gasoline tax boost."
These students, all of whom undobutedly own cars, must
be congratulated for their interest in the downtrodden of this
This is an issue of tremendous importance in our day.
Where would we students be, with fees and costs of living
going up, without our cars?
The Sun also reports that one student's suggestion that
liquor and cigarets be taxed was met with protests.
This shows once again the discriminating taste of our colleagues in Victoria. How could anyone expect students to operate at peak efficiency without liquor and cigarets? It's an
absurd suggestion.
Why, if Student Councillors were denied their cigarets,
no work would ever get done. And everyone knows how ugly
Engineers get when they can't afford their beer.
So we extend our congratulations to Victoria College—

They Like It?
The Ubyssey,
After seeing one of last
week's frosh displays and
reading of broken noses and
such, I would like to commend student council on doing such a good job on bringing this all about.
This year it seems as if
the Frosh are looking for
something which they cannot
find. The thing they are looking for is  Frosh  orientation.
In previous years, the frosh
were made to respect a certain faculty at the start of the
year. This faculty took over
the job that the principal had
in high school; and the Frosh,
although outwardly seeming
to resent it, inwardly thanked this faculty for giving them
guidance and punishment
when needed throughout the
This year, however, the
Frosh can be seen running
with high school jackets flying, to a certain prominent
building on campus and trying to drag its occupants out
to help guide them through'
the treacherous first year. If
AMS is not convinved that
Frosh orientation should return, it could always be convinced to come over to the
lilly pond and participate in
calming these poor, frustrated

As all my loyal fans will have noticed (and I know you're
out there somewhere) this column did not appear last week.
In fact, the whole Thursday edition did not appear last week.
I can already hear the sighs of envy. How lucky, you are
asking, can a guy get? There you are, with a 3,000-word essay
to turn in by tomorrow and not enough ideas to cover a postage
stamp; and here am I with two week's ingrossing, scintillating
Council news, and a mere twenty inches of column space to fill.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. When your intrepid
reporter stumbles yawning and bleary-eyed into The Ubyssey
office of a Tuesday morning, he is immediately pounced upon
by a ravenous News Editor who ruthlessly commanders all his
choices', material.
Out of necessity' rather than choice then, this column is
designed for the collector of ephemeral trivia rather than the
earnest seeker after truth. We cater to those of you, for example,
who are left cold by the news of a new Union building, but who
experience a strange, secret thrill on learning that UBC women
athletes are desperately  in need of shorts.

Now stand back—I'm about to editorialize.
Council Monday night was asked to consider a request from
Inter-Fraternity Council for a blanket booking on the Brock
Board Room every Tuesday noon. At present IFC meets in any
available Buchanan classroom, which is booked through the
Tbe request Was turned down by Council, commendably
we think. However, what sticks in this reporter's craw is the
unmitigated gall of IFC in applying in the first place. This organization, representing the fraternities on campus, is unconnected with the AMS purely by choice. It's a convenient arrangement for them; if they were an AMS organization, they would
have to ooen their doors to all AMS members. This is known
to all non-Greeks as "discrimmantion."
It is ridiculous, of course, to suggest that AMS facilities are
available first and foremost for AMS activities. After all, the
treasury has lots of money; if UCC, for instance, wanted the use
of the Board Room some Tuesday but found that IFC bad a
previous booking—well, what the heck? We could always build
another Brock extension.
* * *
■ Now that we've worked ourselves into a destructive mood,
let's turn back to Council and the Honorary Activities Awards.
Before discussing these awards a week ago Monday, Council
moved into a Committee of the Whole. This means that all
discussion on this subject was confidential, and not available
for   nasty,   scandal-mongering   Ubyssey   reporters.
It is, however, a matter of common knowledge that this
discussion over a recommendation from the HAA Committee,
lasted some tv/o hours. It is also a matter of record that Council
Monday nisrht received a letter from the HAA Committee expressing "disappointment in Student Council's conduct." The
committee, it was pointed out, was formed to choose HAA ward
candidates. It chose six, and set out its reasons for choosing them.
Council cut two name off the list. The committee the letter continues, feels that "Student Council acted arbitrarily and unfairly . . . obviously Council feels their committee performs a relatively useless function."
This last sentiment is one .that has been expressed before
at the Council table. Councillors are entitled to waste their own
time, we suppose, as long as they do the jobs they were elected
to do; but one wonders what justification they have for wasting
the time of their subsidiary committee members. TbwPsda.y,vMarch 2, 1961

WINNIPEG (CUP)—Ed's Note: This feature is reprinted
from The Manitoban. It was written by one of their correspondents whose name is unavailable :    ~.;      ~ tt—

Most French - Canadians contend that their system of education (i.e. their classical course) is
the best system in the world,
and by far better than the
American system.
The fact is that those who go
through it have a real solid intellectual formation and education. In my opinion, it has a
greater value upon the formation of character than any military training. And it provides
the individual with a well-balanced education; almost equally
divided between Languages,
Science, Literature and Philosophy. (May I add that in most
colleges, extra - curricular activates provide courses in
Music and Painting appreciation.) It is a good system, but
very rigid.
The rigidity of the course is
mainy due to the fact the
French-Canadians believe very
much in the excelence of their
system and consequently feel
reluctant to change it: in their
opinion, a change would not be
an amelioration. It is also due
to the fact that colleges are relatively small, and too many options would require too many
professors for too small classes.
Unfortunately, this system is
too selective. If, for instance, you
have a natural aversion for
Maths., you will have very much
trouble to go through it since
you carry Maths for seven years.
If you can't stand Latin, you're
just dead. This does not mean
that you could not be a good
architect, or physician. But since
you need a B.A. degree to enter
these two professions, your talents are wasted. In an ordinary
college, where 100 have begun
their classical course, no more
than 30 graduate eight years
after. And all the 100 who were
originally accepted passed I.Q.!

This is partly true, but I
think that they exagerate the
excess of specialization permitted by the system. This system
obviously puts the stress on the
quantity, while the French-
Canadian system puts the stress
on the quality. Is there not a
possible compromise between
quality and quantity?
It seems that the French-Canadians have realized that this compromise was possible, since they
are now proceeding to a vast reform of only their classical
First of all, tuition fees for
the first four years (High School
years; $200 per year) should be
abolished very soon (maybe for
1961-62) in Order that there no
longer be discrimination towards
these students, since the others
get their High School free.
The Scientific, Commercial
and General courses offered in
High Schools are changed in
order to make it easier for a
student to change from one
course to another (classical
course included; maximum loss
of time with the new system is
one year, for a switch in third
or fourth year.)
The Faculty of Arts of the
University of Montreal intends

NFCUS travel director
snowed under with mail
OTTAWA (CUP)—One day last week the NFCUS travel
director sent <rtit his daily bundle of letters, but this particular
packet was a road mark. It meant that in the last four years
Jean-Pierre Jinchereau had answered more than 10,000 letters from university students who ask for everything from tra- |
vel grants to cheap rates for their mothers
. As the NFCUS travel depart
ment nears its tenth anniversary
Jinchereau is building up steam
for this summer's contingent of
university students who either
hitch-hike across Europe or see
the continent on a NFCUS tour.
Now averaging 4,000 letters a
year J. P. — as he is known by
hundreds of students across Canada—works at a fever pitch,
sometimes around the clock and
usually seven days a week to
answer requests of students who
may never again Use the services
of the department. In addition
he arranges travel for the NFCUS congress and seminar.
Although he has answered
more letters than most people receive in a lifetime, he is still
awed by requests he receives
from students. Out of the mound
of mail that comes to the secretariat there is one sentence that
pops up continually. "1 have

New   financial   proposal

A Student Council plan to
have the Administration pay for
. an estimated $200,000 food service centre may be the key to
financing of the proposed Student Union complex.
Council President Dave Edgar
said Wednesday he had approached UBC President Dr.
Norman MacKenzie with . the
plan, and said Dr MacKenzie
thought the plan "reasonable."
Edgar said Dr. MacKenzie advised Council to take the plan
before the Board of Governors
next Tuesday for official consideration.
Under this plan the Adminis-
tnration would repay the students ah amount equal to the
cost of the food services a few
years after the completion of
the buildings.
If this plan is successful, it
would free the estimated $200,-
000 cost of the food facilities,
and allow the money to be put
toward a possible fourth floor
on the proposed three - story
The Administration is report
edly also prepared to put $250,-
000 towards the Winter Sports
Arena aspect of the complex.
Council plans ^presently call
for $750,000 to be raised from
student fees.
If architects' plans and the
negotiations with the Administration can be completed Tuesday, a referendum could be put
before  the  students  March   17.
Councillors feel  the  new de
velopment is the key to a more
adequate student centre. Under
the old plans which called for
just student money, it was felt
the building would be quite inadequate.
Financial problems have been
the main issue to date.
Edgar said if the students approved the referendum, that
construction could begin probably next fall.

Some students write the same

Jinchereau points to a record
of "never refusing to try to find
the information asked," and declares proudly, "we are the only

kind in Canada." The only thing
that stops him is unsigned letters, and he is stymied until a
second letter arrives demanding
to know why there was no reply.

The motion was defeated by

The council felt that in giving
honorariums to these two officials they were opening the
door to an increase in the number of honorariums. This is a
practice that the council does
not want to start.
