Great Trek officials returned home Friday with "no promises" but a 'feeling of optimism" after meeting with the provincial cabinet.
Councillors Ben Trevino, Don Jabour and Allan Thackray made history Friday morning as they presented a student-
prepared brief before thc Social Credit Cabinet in an hour-long
session. mmmmm^mmmm^^^^mmmm___^_

No Results Yet
The success or failure of the presentation to the Cabinet
of the Trek brief has not yet shown any definite results.
While the brief was*well-received, no answer was given at
the meeting of Premier Bennett, the Cabinet, and the Trekkers. Until that answer reaches UBC. the Trek Committee
should not call a halt U> their petitioning.
No one respects a job half-done. The brief presented to
the Cabinet was called 'the best to reach Victoria in five
years." It is now up to the general student body of UBC
to finish the job with the same tenacity the Trek CommiUce
has shown.
Vancouver, the North Shore, and Burnaby will be petitioned February first and second. A relatively small but
well-organized group of students collected almost 20,000
names on Trek petitions in Victoria during the Christmas
holidays. We have to do at least as well in Vancouver to
make the- pel it ion moan anything.
What has been accomplished so far has been done by
.small ceiininittees and tightly-knit groups petitioning throughout B.C.With the huge task of canvassing Vancouver lo lining ahead, we are afraid that the large segment of apathetic
protoplasm sometimes called the UBC student body will
spoil the hard work that has accomplished so much thus
The implications that have arisen from the Trek Committee's work are far-reaching. It i.s evident that neither
Provincial nor Federal Government will grant enough money
to cure all of UBC's ills. Petitioning now serves a dual purpose. It will finish the aims of the Committee regarding
the Provincial Geivernment, but it will also prepare the way
for the coming Capital Gifts campaign scheduled by the Alumni Office.
UBC students have a chance to help in a work that can
have a long-lasting effect on this University. It would be a
shame to let apathy leave a blot on the geiod work that's been
done. UBC shouldn't let  its Trek Ceimmittee down.
Survey Needed?
In his letter of January 24th, 1957 Don Jabour stated
extremely well the case of the lour councillors who expressed their displeasure at the failure of the Ubyssey to give adequate advance publicity to certain important campus events.
A.s originator of this motion eif displeasure and one
of the "'two athletes" mentioned in the Ubyssey editorial,
I would second Don's statement and also add a few comments
of my own.
The real issue in this case is—Are (he students getting
the kind of paper that they want?
The four councillors who .supported the motion of displeasure felt that adequate pre-coverage of important campus events was an obligation of the Ubyssey lo the students.
Those who voted against the motion felt mainly that further pre-event publicity would turn the paper into nothing
more than a "billboard." The question is, what do the rest
eif the students think?
A student newspaper must be very sensitive lo criticisms and always on the loe>kout for indications of student opi-
ion on the content of the paper. You will never improve
the quality of the paper by only listening lo the opinions
of Pubsters. You at the Pub may like the paper, but does
anybody else'?
Therefore, Mr. Editor, in accepting your invitation to
study the workings of the Ubyssey, I would like to sug-ie-sl.
that you undertake a study ol student eipinion on the e intent of your paper. Find out what i.s read and not rend and
why. The> Market Research class in Commerce or some other
unbiased group could conduct the study. I would rest my
ease on the outcome of such a survey.
Trek' Movement
attracted attention.
Here is a sampling
of reactions.
(UBC Socred Club Publication)
"Givetb to liim that asketh"
is an old rule which contains
much wisdom even in our democracy today. The trouble is,
there are- always too many
The demands in our economic system cannot always be
mot because of lack of money.
Tho most important needs must
be met first, not for laek of
desire to help, but for lack of
Our agency, government, is
forced to obey the system in-
stuari of our will. Man is the
slave te> the system instead of
the- system serving man and his
nee-els. We cannot expect eair
yeive'rnmcnts tei mee't our demands imle'.ss we1 first solve' the'
problem of the' ecemomic system. Social Cre'dit has the solution.
The- object of the SGTC is
to obtain further financial aid
from our provincial government. Their organization is
sound and their leadership brilliant. Since the people must
pay. they have the right to
know why we need the additional aid. When they deem
it proper, they, through their
agency, will grant us the, aid.
But the problem is not that
the people don't want to help
us, but that their needs in other
fields are greater.
Students returning from the
University of British Columbia
for their vacations have been
circulating a petition which
they propose to present to the
provincial government at Victoria. The petition is a simple one. It asks for more aid
lor the University.
The petition has been drawn
up by the student body, though
with the undisguised blessing
of the university authorities.
It is by no means strange that
they should do this.
There is a crying need for
more funds for every faculty
and for more buildings from
laboratories to housing accommodation. The government
knows this but the students
live and work under hardships
and they are impatient.
Youth always wants to get
things done in a hurry. It is a
eiualily which many older people' find rathe-!' trying at time's,
but it is still a desirable thing.
A gre'iit many things in the
work! would be' better and
make the world better if there
was more haste to get them
done, and more aid U> the university is one.
There is a great deal of
sympathy In the Interior for
thc aims and objectives of the
Great Trek II, a.s the students
call their movement, but it is
sympathy with reservations,
There is a great deal of feeling that those students whose
homes are outside the Vancouver area are unduly penalized
by the fact that they have to
pay for their board and accom-
modation.    Some  of  which  is
not the- best.
For these it has been suggested that they should receive
aid in one form or another.
One suggestion is that these
outside students should have
their fees remitted. This would
relieve each of thc necessity of
paying out around $300 annually. This would make an appreciable difference in the cost
of a student's attendance at
university. It would also make
an appreciable difference to
the operating income of the
It is an ingenious suggestion
and will appear attractive to
many, but it would only add
to the university's difficulties
unless the government would
be prepared to make a grant
in lieu of the remitted fees.
There has always been a
feeling in the Interior that the
whole of our higher educational facilities should not be
concentrated in Vancouver.
In many cenmtries anel in
some> province s of Canada, junior colleges eir "branches'' of
certain faculties of the parent
college are located in distant
In British Columbia there is
Victoria College with UBC affiliation, and it seems the time
has come for similar development in the more populous interior regions.
Nelson has always been a
logical point for such a college,
and with Notre Dame College
well established here, it would
seem only logical to expand
college facilities in try; area te
fulfill the requirements of all
students in the Kootenay who
could benefit from a Junior
College with UBC affiliation.

USC Chairman Scott Explains Opposition
To Student Government Reform Report
In   answer   to   the'   Ubyssey     can   be  made  on  student   gov-     nion until alter the action has
e'diteirial of January 25, e>n the
report of the Students' Council
Investigations Committee, I
would like to present, my views
on the subject.
Firstly, the CennmiUoo was
not instructed to solicit proposals from the student body, but
instead sat as a group of experts who put forward only
their own opinions, I feel that
this was an ine'orre'ct approach
to the problem.
Secondly, the report vas very
vague' and contradictoi > as regards USC's function and position. Thi' report states that
"the   best   improvement   which
ernment al this time is a stronger and more useful USC," and
further, that "it (USC) will be
a.s weak eir strong as ii desires
lo be." They ge> on to state
that "this does not require any
constitutional   changes."
This seems to show a lack of
knowledge of the1 present position of USC. As now constituted, USC meets Mondays to
consider the Council's actions
of the week previous.
It has no prior knowledge' as
to what will be clise-usseel at
Council me'Ctings, and ,s in effect, discussing issues thai have
already been .decided. USC
has no chance to voice its opi-
been taken,
Thirdly, the report was not
i'arsighted enough. It lays down
no proposals which would adequately take care of the changes necessitated by the growth
of the University. There i.s no
provision for an e'ld.mged Students' Council, noi .s Hutc a
substitute offered for tiie outmoded general  meeting.
For these reasons, USC opposed the acceptance of this re--
port, and asked that Council
cemsider other proposals from
intere'sle'd groups.

Quick JoIIph That Trek
By your Come and Get It reporter
My name is Thursday.
My mother called me Thursday because that was the day
the Hudson Bay delivered in Port Moody where I was born.
Like I said, I'm Thursday. I am a dick. Dick Thursday.
Six days ago I was lying in bed in my penthouse overlooking the Lions Gate Bride. I've got a government contract
to watch the Bridge in case any sharp car dealer tries lo give
it away as a promotion stunt. The phone rang.
" 'Scuse me, doll," I muttered, stretching over to answe ••
"Yeah—wait a minute, wait a minute ..."
I clamped my hand over the mouthpiece.
"Better get going doll, I just remembered they're springing
the wife today."
"Now,"  I  began,   "what's  your  problem?"
"Okay . . . okay . . . sure. Norm ... got it."
I slammed down the reeeiver and reached for the Sling-
er's. Nothing like breakfast in bed.
An hour later I was on the case. Don, Ben and Al of the
* East Mall Mob were going to arrange a payoff. My Job? My
job was to make sure they came back to town with the loot
like Big Norm expected them to. If there was a double-cross
then I was to provide another unsolved crime for the police
records. !
The boys left on 1005. This made me suspicious immediately. How come they took the Winnipeg plane to get to Vancouver Island? Anyway, they bailed out at Abbotsford in time
to catch the Victoria flight. This time I followed them disguised
as a rear-gunner. Luckily, the stewardess was an old waitress
friend of mine from Larry's.
They drove into the Capital City in a big black Caddie
(or Ogopeigo, as they call it in the Okanagan). I'd lost all my
money to the co-pilot in a crap game so I had to work mv passage into town on a tally-ho. I swatted flies off the driver.
I soon discovered that they were staying in a waterfront
hotel. The name of the hotel was as impresive as the place
wasn't. It was the Empress.
I checked in at the Seamen's Mission and followed the
boys up to the Big House. Eleven-oh-one they met Wacky's mob
in a smart upstairs room. This is where my job really began,
Posing as a spittoon, I crouched in a corner and kept
my ears open. Pretty soon Don and Al laid their cards on
the table. Wacky had a royal flush so he took the pot.
Everything seemed above board. Ben was playing shuffle-
board in the corner with a road-building preacher who'd flown
in for the session.
Eleven-oh-six a decision was reached. After the coffee
had been served the payoff was arranged—fifteen thousand
G's. I was lucky. The meeting ended at 11:30 and at 11:26
one of Wacky's mob had a bit off a plug of chaw.
The boys then started hitting the bars and later hitting
the bartenders too. Just for safety I tailed them until the
town closed up. Nine o'clock was too early to hit the sack
so I started a mah jong game in the lobby of the Salvation
Army Home.
Next morning the boys returned to the Big Town—just
like Big Norm had wanted them to. I waited for the tide and
swam back so a.s not to look conspicuous.
Jean Howarlh met me at Kits Beach and drove me into
town. She wanted a story on my work with the 800 Block
Granville Boys Club.
I walked into my apartment feeling pretty damn good.
The place seemed just like home again with my wife cleaning
her Thompson sub in the John and a new copy of "House
Beautiful" lying em the table.
"Leiok outa the window," my wife mumbled, "notice anything' different?"
"Sweetheart—you dug the garden?"
"Tho Bridge," she said, "it's gone."
I knew it, I knew it. Those guys will de) anything lo gel
rid of those '5fi models.

Filmsoc is presenting the
classic   "Battleship   Potemkin"
3:30, at 6, and at 8:15.
This film has been condemned'
Tor   over   thirty   years   by   the i
B.C. censor board because of its'
emotional  impact.  It  was finally   approved   when   put   before
an   appeal   board   last   summer.
Fliis  will   be  the   first   showing
before  the general public.
The story takes place in 1905,
when sailors of the battleship
Potemkin mutiny because they
[are fed some wormy meat. The
officers are thrown into the I
water. I
The   people   of   the   port   of
! Odessa take up the cause of thc
i mutineers until   the militia  ar-
| rives. The people are caught on
the la>-ge flight of stairs leading
f to the sea when they were tak- j
I ing food to the sailors. The mili-|
tia opens fire at the top of the j
i stairs and march steadily down '
[ shooting  constantly.
J     The  massacre of  the  popula-:
;tion of Odessa is comparable in
! epic stature to the films of D. W.
Griffith (Birth of a  Nation, Intolerance, etc.) i
The film is directed by Serge
| Rubinstein,   who   is   using   the
! new montage technique for the
! first   time   for   dramatic  effect.
The  theory of montage  is  that
the speed of editing varies with I
the action  on  the screen.
In   most   countries,   the   film
was cut to some extent, but B.C.
is one of the few places where \
it has been  banned completely.'
It can be shown in most of the
other  provinces.

Many Mediums Used
For "Space" Shows
UBC's School of Architecture celebrates its tenth anniversary this month with an exhibition at the downtown Art
The display in five parts was
built entirely by the students,
and takes up the West wing
and main hall of the Gallery.
Centering round the architectural concept of space, the
exhibition shows the seven
basic elements of space, the
physical aspects of space and
the elements of interior space
together with enviromental
studies and the reality of design.
Basic elements of space were
set up by first year students
and include light, form, color
and   line.     Each     element     is

Second year students have
lo scaled models of building
interiors and exteriors ranging
from commercial enterprise to
domestic living.
Second year room has a
brass-wire representation of
man himself, the centre and
the creator of the architectural
devices he has designed to
make living easier for himself
and his children.
The main hall has analysis of
climate, materials, techniques
and culture as important influences on the design of any regional building type. Shown
in the display are Moroccan
and Mexican architecture illustrating this analysis.
David Brockington, Arch 3,
has sketched a 10' by 14' black

which divides this analysis
from the "Reality" section,
mainly office buildings. Also
included here is a consideration of tenvn planning and rc-

work of practicing architects
across Canada.
University architects, Sharp,
Thompson, Berwick and Pratt
working with Charles E. Craig
of Victoria have gold medal-
winning displays in the Awards
with their working designs of
the Kiwanis Village in Victoria.
Vancouver's staid Art Gallery resembled a madhouse
before the display as 100 UBC
School of Architecture students
and their girl friends and
wives worked furiously to get
everything ready in time.
Working in a frenzied heap
of plywood, egg cartons, jars
of paint, peculiar shirts, fish
nets, concrete blocks, ferns,
panes of glass, canvas, nails,
string and sawdust, the students finished the display barely half an hour before its official opening by Faculty of
Applied Science head, Dean
Gunning and B.C's Minister of
Works, Mr. W. M. Chant.
'B.C.'s architects are paying a great role in the development of the province," Mr.
Chant said. "Young people
should always give their creative' imaginations free rein."
Exhibition continues to Fe-b-
ruary 17 and is concurrent
with the annual UBC Arts Gallery display ot the School of
Architecture featuring the Pil-
kington Awards given to the
best national architectural undergraduate theses.

The Thunderbirds would just as soon forget last weekend.
'Birds ran up against two very fine teams, the Central
Washington Wildcats and the Pacific Lutheran Glad'ators,
and came out on the short end of 72-57 and 83-44 scores. ■
Friday night against Central, the game was lost in the

More than anything else, it
was thc tremendous rebounding
of Central's big forward line
which made the difference.
The Wildcats led 38-24 at the
half and drew away to a.s much
as a 23-poinl lead before a last
minute rally cut the' final margin to 72-57.
Saturday's game was even
worse. The Lutes, in no mood
to fool around after a close 55-51
win over Western Friday, piled
up a 21-8 lead in the first quarter.
UBC was never able to close
the gap and in the last quarter,
with coach Jack Pomfret throwing his subs into the game, the
Lutes poured it on to run up an
83-44 score.
Big guns in the PLC onslaught
were, as expected, Chuck Curtis
and Roger Iverson. Both look
like a couple of high school kids
until they get their hands on the
ball. Then you see why both
are all-Conference. Between
them they scored 41 points.
The Gladiators were doubtlessly very good, but not that
good. The Birds were also very-
bad. Part of the explanation is
the absence of injured centre
Lyall Levy. His replacement,
Laurie Veitch, worked very
hard and notched 10 points Saturday but he lacks Levy's experience and coolness.
In all, it was not a pleasant
weekend. But the Birds should
remember one lesson from it.
They can't afford to let their
taller opponents get an early
lead because it forces the Birds
to abandon the close-vested percentage basketball which is their
e>nly hope e>f victory.

University of B.C. Thunderbird hockey team travels to Edmonton  for the  seventh  annual two game Hamber Cup Series with the U Diversity of Alberta Golden Bears, February 4
and 5.
UBC won the cup in 1950, the year of its in auguration, but failed to win it since.
In last year's series they lost to Alberta by one goal.
      - ■-      •     Although   the   'Birds   have   a
five and seven record this year,
Coach Ron Donnelly has high.
hopes for this series.
"I am looking forward to a
good series," Donnelly commented, "but it is going to be tough.
The Bears defeated Saskatchewan 11-1 in an earlier engagement.''
At Ihe moment Donnelly is
in a dilemma. To comply with
travelling regulations he will
have to cut his squad from its
present size of twenty down
to fifteen.
Injuries will help to make the
task easier. Mike Giroday is suffering from a seperated shoulder and his presence on the trip
is  questionable.
Bill Boyd tore his medial ligaments which will sideline him
for the rest of the year.
Making the trip are team stalwarts George Nagle, Gordie
Mundle Hugh McCulloch and
Mike Laurinte.
Donnelly will not make his
final cuts until the Thursday
before thc series.
This will be Donnelly's first
attempt to bring the Hamber
Cup back to U.B.C.

UBC Braves cagers dropped a
see-saw battle to West Van 59-
54 in Junior A league action
Friday night, leaving them a
bare mafnematical chance of
gaining   second   place.
Braves started quickly, and at
one point in the first half they
led 20-6. UBC faded badly in
the second and third quarters,
however, and the West Vanners
left the floor at half time with
Braves leading by only three
points, 25-22.
In the second half, West Van
swept  into a   14 point lead behind the deadly shooting of Big
: Bill   Nicol.  It   was  late  in  thc
I game   before   Braves   began   to
recover some of their poise and
