A small item entitled "Tours for Gourmets" crushed between "The Likelihood of Tax Reductions in '56" and "Federal Subsidies for Yam Farmers Possible" caught my blood-shot
eye as I looked over the copy of the Financial Post that I was wrapping the garbage in.
As the coffee grounds oozed
out I quickly read the article.

(three dflys), London (three

presumably one remains as

A  Sober   Look  At   Liquor
If the opposition is looking for issues with which to belabor Premier Bennett and his followers during the next
election campaign, they might consider the question of liquor.
When the Socreds moved into Victoria, they inherited the
Stevens report and the results of a plebescite which showed
that the majority of the people in B.C. wanted more liquor
outlets, and the opportunity to consume alcoholic beverages
in restaurants and cabarets.
The plebiscite also showed that they wanted the government to adopt a saner attitude towards the stuff, They wanted
it retailed to the consumer like any other product; and there
is no reason why it shouldn't be.
The present restrictions and inconvencies surrounding its
sale serve absolutely no purpose. The only justification for
their existance is to keep alcohol out of the hands of alcoholics
or minors. They can hardly be said to be fulfilling their intent.
The press carries reports of a minor convicted of possession
of liquor or arrested on a licensed premises almost daily, and
every university student knows many people not yet 21 who are
regular visitors to downtown pubs. A Saturday night roundup
by the police would undoubtedly net hundreds of offenders.
The police force simply does not have the staff to keep
minors out of beer parlors and the beer parlor operators—
despite their despairing wail of "inability to cope with the
problem" are apparently unwilling to do so. They have only
to make a "questionable" patron produce reasonable proof of
his age. The Liquor Act holds no penalty for a waiter or operator found serving a minor who has purported to be 21 and
backed up his statement with reasonable proof.
Also most minors, if they are within a year or two of
coming of age, have no difficulty in purchasing whatever they
want at the government liquor stores and if this fails there are
dozens of bootleggers in town who are only too happy to
The plain of the matter is that a minor can get as
much liquor as he wants with very little trouble or fear of
arrest. Yet the official reaction to a recent public opinion poll
showing that approximately 60 per cent of those questioned
would favor the sale of beer in grocery stores was that minors
might then be able to purchase it with ease. Who do they
think they're kidding?
What about alcoholics? People to whom liquor has become
a disease, ruining their lives and wrecking their homes. What
about the "rubbies" the sickening human wrecks that swarm
around the liquor stores like flies bumm>ng or stealing enough
money to purchase a few hours of oblivion.
These are the people that liquor really hurts but the
government neither tries to keep it from them nor spends any
part of its astranomical profits on research or treatment to
help them. It just keeps on quietly raking the money in.
And it's a lot of money. One Vancouver liquor store was
taking in $40,000 a day during the Christmas rush and approximately four-fifths of that goes directly into the provincial
treasury in the form of taxes. The drys might note that the
biggest liquor profiters are not the manufacturers, but provincial governments. Surely some part of these millions could
be spent to help eliminate the real evils that liquor creates.
The Victoria Socreds, however, are still thinking of liquor
in terms of Demon Rum; a fluid deadly to both man ard beast
which must be watered down beyond recognition and sold
under the most disagreeable circumstances possible.
It's no secret that some Socred MLA's would like to see
prohibition tomorrow and it's obvious that the more liberal-
minded members of the group dare not risk offending the
religius fundamentalists which form such a large part of Socred
support, both in the party and in the public at large.
Which brings us back to the Stevens report and its rec-
commendations. Vancouver restaurant owners are still waiting
for licenses to sell cocktails as well as beer and wines. The
report recommended such a move the Socreds once promised
it but it will take a lot of public pressure before it is made.
The same applies to any other measures designed to make the
purchase and consumption of liquor in British Columbia a sane
and civilized process.
The question of liquor reform is vital. The present situation
is bluntly, a stinking mess. The government is hamperng the
average sober citizen in the conduct of his affairs and doing
nothing to help those really menanced by alcohol. It is following the policy of church groups and reactionaries whose thinking is 50 years out of date. Lock up; Dry up; stultify would
make an appropriate slogan.
Liquor reform does not, as the prohibitonists fear, mean
drunkenness and debauchery. It means simply an honest attempt
ot eradicate ALL the evils of our present system, which is
more than we have had from Victoria to date.

Dear Sir.—
About a month ago, I loaned
my Organic Chemistry (Chem
300) notebook to a friend of
mine who was studying in the
North-West wing of the main
library. I told him to leave the
blue "Coil Rotary" notebook
on the table where he was sit-
I forgot to pick it up and the
next day I began a month long
series of inquiries at Lost and
Found etc. No sign of the book,
which has my name written, as
all the notes, in turquoise ink
on the inside cover. That notebook contains two and one half
months lecture notes (yes, I'm
crying) and it is thus very
necessary to me. If someone
mistakenly or otherwise has
picked up the notes, as must
have occured, Please, Oh
Please Turn Them In To The
Brock Lost and Found. Otherwise I will have a permanent
feeling of dishonesty towards
all my fellow students.
Thank You,
Dear Sir,—
At Thursday evenings Godi-
va's Gallop one elected student
councillor, coordinator of activities, Don McCallum, was
present as a guest. During the
evening this member's actions
hardly portrayed those expected of an official who so recently
saw fit to criticize Engineer's
conduct. Mr. McCallum, in
order to obtain a souvenir, willfully tore a section out of a
model displayed prominently at
thc Ball. This was a prize winning model and was due to be
displayed downtown at later
dates. His crude disrespect for
student accomplishments and
private property warrants action through Student's Court

Bitter Attacks Avenged
Ames Will Burn In Quad
Campus Players Club will revenge the bitter attacks on
. campus  theatricals by  critic Mike Ames  tomorrow  noon   in
the quad when an effigy of Ames will be burned, kindled by
piles of Ravens. *	
.:-.;•-   <1».£?T!?»^T'
As a prelude to the Players
Club annual spring production,
"One Hundred Years Old" which
opens tonight in the auditorium,
the effigy will be burned while
' Ames pleads to save his Ravens
from the flames.
'•The promoter of such abominable blasts must be brought
to justice, Players Club members cried. "There will be no
trial, he has already been condemned."
Club members also condemned
"uncultured" UBC students who
have been en campus three or
lour years and have never seen
a   university production.
"They slink out to varsity, go
to lectures, and then slink back
to   their   holes    without   ever
•breathing a  breath of culture,"
they charged.
The play "One Hundred Years
Old" is a play without a message.
It centres around Papa Juan,
played by David Hughes, who
invites all his relations to help
him celebrate his 100th birthday.
The heroine of the play, the
young, swee; Currita who symbolizes "All that is virtuous and
good in young womanhood" will
be played by Joanne Johnson
while John Maunsell plays the
role of her lover. Trino, the dashing Spanish Cavalier.
The role of Dona Marciala
the elderly Spanish noblewoman will be taken by Danica
d'Honte with Howard Johnson
as her husband. Caroline Bell
will play Dona Filonena, the
pessimistic middle-aged shrew
who keps her young daughter
(Janice Beairsto^ under her constant supervision.
"    The cast also includes Marion
Poggemiller as Campos the good
natured servant woman with
Carol Bowen as her young
daughter; Lee McKenzie as An-
tonon the farmer; Walter Shyn-
Karyk as Alonso the leftist village drunk and Gerry Gilbert as
Manuel the servant.
Under the direction of Sam
Payne and assistant direction
of Ian Currie. the play will also
include special recordings of
Spanish songs by the Muscial Society, under the direction of Harry  Pryce.
Sets wore designed by stage
manager, John Van Buckenhaut
with costumes by Helen Mossop,
and Gay Newitt and lighting
by Arthur Johnson.
Tickets for the play which
will later tour the province are
on sale now al thc AMS office
and at Modern Music.

Crucial General Meet Today
NFCUS  Withdrawal

UBC students will sit in judgment of the National Federation of Canadian University Students at today's General
Meeting in the Armoury at noon.
Option Talks for
Commerce Students
EXUBERANT Kaclsoc members, confident
that they will have a larue turnout for
their "Shamrock Shuffle" Saturday night,
endeavour to drive jeep up steps of Wesbrook Building. What good this kind of nonsense is going to do their dance nobody

crew isn't likely to put up with such tom
foolery. Anyway, whether you think R:>d-
soecers are crazy or not. come to the
'Shamrock Shuffle" in Brock 8:o(l to midnight Saturday. Even though I'acl.soo is
sponsoring it, the dance1 promises to be a
success since local comedian Barney Potts
has promised to find some new jokes for
(he  occasion.
Members of the University Radio Society will run
radio station CKNW for three weeks this summer.
Hal Davis of the station proposed the new method of
alleviating summer vacation problems for his staff.
The entire staff will go on vacation from July 1 to
July 21. Kadsoc members will replace the regular staff
both in the newsroom and on the air.
Don Eraser, Ratlsoc president says, I am sure the club     ,
will make a big success of this, and we look forward to
doing this annually.
The plan is significant of the recognition downtown
business is giving UBC. Both UBC and Radsoc will bene-     I

. In deciding whether or not to remain in NFCUS at today's
General Meeting UBC wll probably be deciding the fate of
the national organization. The University of Manitoba is out;
McGill University is out; University of Toronto withdrew last
week and UBC decides today. NFCUS cannot possibly operate
without the financial support of the "big four" universities.
Our vote today will decide the matter.
That NFCUS i.s imperfect as it is presently constituted i.s
obvious from the amount of discontent it is raising across
Canada. That some form of national student union i.s needed i.s
equally obvious from the things that NFCUS has managed
to, .accomplish and from the things that a strong, national
organization plainly could accomplish.
The present program is toe varied for NFCUS's organization and too expensive for its financial resources. Strong leadership is impossible because of the lack of continuity of the
national executive. To sum it up briefly NFCUS has tried
to accomplish too much with too little and consequently has
accomplished almost nothing. And by spreading itself too
thin what it has accomplished has gone unnoticed by the vast
majority of Canadian university students.
The UBC NFCUS Investigation Committee has recommended that we withdraw from NFCUS and that a conference
of student presidents be called to set up a worthwhile workable organization. That is a very big AND. If UBC withdraws
and NFCUS withers the Student Council of this university
has a duty to strive for the formation of new national organization.
The only possible excuse for a destructive act is that out
of it something constructive will arise. If we withdraw it is
incumbent upon President-Elect Don Jabour to see that UBC
takes the lead in building a national organization worthy of
the universities of Canada.
Constant Deadline
Next year we plan to put four editions of the Ubyssey
per week. And the following year we hope to become a daily
as our enrolment warrants. Next year's fourth edition will
appear on the campus Monday morning. That means it will
be written and printed over the weekend.
It also means that the top editors of the paper will be
devoting between 20 and 35 hours per week to its publication.
Unlike other jobs on the campus an editor cannot take a day
off during the ENTIRE publishing year if he doesn't feel like
working or if they feel like studying on some particular day.
Unlike other matters, the publication of a paper won't wait.
There is a constant deadline that must be met, day in, day out.
The editors of every large university paper in Canada
receive some sort of remuneration. The editors of the Toronto
paper for instance receive $15 per week. The editors of the
McGill paper receive free room and board. Their enrolment
fees plus a salary. We do not think it is too much to ask nor
that some sort of a bad principle will be set if the Managing
Editor and the News Editor of this paper receive a $100 honorarium per year. We ask your support for this motion at
the general meeting today.
"There are many more jobs than people to fill them"—so goes the alluring theme song
of the forthcoming conference on library service as a career. In an effort to acquaint UBC
students with the opportunities in the growing profession of librarianship, the British Col*
umbia Library Association is sponsoring a special conference in Room 852 of the University
Library, Friday, March 16, at 2 o'clock.
Spelling out the conference slogan—"Books and People: Your Opportunities in Library Service*
will be featured speakers Peter Grossman, Assistant Director of the Vancouver Public Library,
Amy Hutcheson, Chief Librarian of the New Westminster Public Library, and Dr. Sam Roth-
stein, Assistant University Librarian at UBC. After the talks (promised to be brief), there will
be an informal "buzz session" over coffee and doughnuts (free). The conference is open to all
interested students.
Vancouver's first bookmobile will be on display at UBC Friday afternoon. Brought to tht
campus to drum up interest in Friday afternoon's conference on ibrarianship as a career, th«
shiny new vehicle will be parked between the Library and the Campus Cupboard. Designed t«
bring books to Vancouver residents who live too far away from branches of the Vancouver
Public Library, will cruise among the city's outer suburbs, brining its 2000 volumes to the very
doorstep of readers. The bookmobile, painted in bold orange (officially "tangerine") and black,
is 26 feet long, weighs umpteen tons and was built to special specifications by a local firm. The
library career conference, to be held in Room 852 of the Library at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon,
will stress the new look in library service which the bookmobile represents, and the many
jobs presently available to professional librarians.
Students who think of the library as long rows of heavy volumes will be surprised to
learn that much of the Library's most important material is housed in one room not much
bigger than a closet. The word for this material is "microreproductions," and it has revolutionized scholarship. Imagine a whole shelf of huge bound newspapers. Put beside them a
small spool of film the size of a matchbox. Yet the spool of film—"microfilm"—contains all
the material in the newspapers, and, what is more, will outlast them by centuries!
Other forms of microreproduction, such as microprint, reproduce text on photographic
paper instead of film but give equally astonishing results. A single sheet of microprint, 6"x9",
contains 100 pages of an ordinary printed book; a shoebox full of microcards holds the equivalent
of the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
Aside from the dramatic saving in space, microphotography makes it possible for UBC to
obtain scarce materials that could otherwise not be bought. Thus the microprint set of "Three
Centuries of Britain and American Plays" places at the disposal of scholars here all the plays
produced in Great Britain and the United States for three hundred years—a collection which
even  the British Museum could not  match with original texts alone.

The  Ubyssey:
With regards to my letter
which appeared in The Ubyssey criticizing campus dining
facilities 1 would like to make
it clear that 1 was misquoted
in the final paragraph, and 1
am in fact most interested in
receiving a reply to my criticism, and discovering whether it would be feasible to
transfer dining facilities to
the Brock.
Editor,  the  Ubyssey
"One of those farcial little
things geared to the intelligence of a nitwit" applies
more justly to Ames' criticism. "A boring flop" certainly defines the Raven. "Windiest" equals Ames. And, for
a change, why doesn't Ames
take his "fix" instead of a
bottle. Judging from his reviews, he should join Alcoholics Anonymous. For "Hamism"
the best bet is Ames. Only
Liberace could write any
worse. Lastly, in regard to
backslappers and hypocrites, I
shall make the following statements: I have no connection
with any of the organizations
in question. None of my
friends   or   acquaintances   be
long, as far as 1 know. I don't
give a damn for anything anyone thinks if 1 don't like it.
Ames, the perpetrator of the
Raven has much more chance
of being a hypocrite since he
permits the publication of the
worst collection of utter rubbish I have ever read.

Dear Sir,
A good many of us found
boarding houses this year by
sticking pins into Dr. Shrum's
"List of Accommodation."
Many reasonable looking
places did not turn out so well
after we were safely hooked.
Why doesn't the AMS ask each
student boarder to fill in a
confidential report on his
boarding house at the end of
the year. These reports could
be kept on file in the AMS
office for the use of prospective boarders next year. This
should entail very little trouble;
blank forms could be distributed  with   The   Ubyssey.   In
this way students would be
warned of poor boarding

be done a good turn.

worries me is the book is bound
to lose money, but I suppose
that is one thing we have lots
of. I have only one suggestion,

"Because of the lack of adequate.teacher training program
and the lack of facilities for training the student teacher a college of education is being established at the university next
September," stated Dean Walter Gage in an address in FG
100 Wednesday.
"The college will officially
be opened September 1 and will
be one of the regular faculties
on campus subject to the power
of the board of governors and
the senate," he said.
The teacher training faculty
will be under the direction of
a joint board of education organizations, acting in an advisory
capacity as representatives of
their divisions.
"The student teachers will be
on campus," stressed Dean
Gage, "and will be regular members of the AMS."
Dr. R. MacKintosh, Director
of Secondary Teacher Education,
later addressed the audience,
and stated that the new education program offered a balanced
integrated program of aoademic
and professional training, not
like the program now in use.
There will be two routes to
a secondary certificate, a five
year course In education leading
to a Bachelor of Education or a
four year course in any of the
faculties with one year in teacher  training  education,
The elementary teacher training has been extended to a two
year course. A four year course
is also offered which will give
a Bachelor of Education ln the
elementary field.
"But, because of the shortage
of teachers a one year emergency course is being given. It
will only be a temporary teaching certificate valid for four
years," stated Dr. Johnson, Director of Elementary Teacher
Dean Neville Scarfe, now education leader at the Manitoba
University, will head the College
of Education here.

Should UBC get out of NFCUS and try to

the top issue that students must decide at today's general meeting.
Student Councillors will recommend that
UBC get out, but that the 50 cents-per-capita
levy now going to NFCUS be allocated for the
purpose of forming a more streamlined, national students' organization.
If students vote 'Yes" to the Council proposal, NFCUS is doomed, since several large
universities have already withdrawn.
If they vote "No," UBC will remain in

Editor's Note: The following is the complete majority report of the AMS NFCUS
Investigations Committee. It
clearly presents Council's
reasons for recommending
NFCUS withdrawal.
The principle object of
NFCUS is, naturally enough,
to promote understanding and
co-operation among Canadian
University students; secondly,
it is a lobbying body to promote increased benefits for
University students such as reduced train fares and government scholarships. Lastly
through NFCUS. Canadian
students can be represented
at the several international
student conferences held weaeh
NFCUS has sponsored and
encouraged several useful projects such as the cultural com
petitions, group insurance
plans, and government scholarships. Thc results have varied
with the projects but there is
no doubt the NFCUS has rendered some positive benefits to
the man on the street' student.
However, the usefulness of
NFCUS as an effective or even
worth-while federation of Canadian students has been challenged by various campi for
some time. The dismal results
of the 1953 Edmonton Conference forced other universities
besides UBC to closely evaluate the measure of success and
benefit which the organization
and its members enjoy in relation to the time and money
spent on it. At the Edmonton
conference this body—specifically designed to promote unity
—was a scene of discord, inde-
cisiveness and petty bickering
between delegates who were
disappointed in NFCUS's lack
of purpose and direction.
Tire primary complaints and
difficulties of NFCUS, most of
which were all too evident in
Edmonton, are as follows:
1. NFCUS is not representative of all Canadian students.
Tho omission of four important student  bodies—Montreal,
Stay In", NFCUS
Scholar Writes
(Editor's Note: One UBC student who is thoroughly convinced
of NFCUS' value is Henry Johns, now at University of Toronto
on a NFCUS-sponsored exchange scholarship. In the following
article, he urges UBC to remain in the national organisation.)
As a NFCUS exchange student to Toronto University I would
like to come forward with at least some positive use for NFCUS.
While a national organization like NFCUS tends to be rather
vague and tin-understandable, even our own university tends that
way. Who of us could really describe all the benefits we get from
extra-curricular activities other than'in terms of Interpersonal
relationships? Yet we pay $18 to our AMS without any questions. ,
As the handbook states, "$18 is the total AMS fee you pay. But
to get your money's worth you must participate in student activities." So it is with NFCUS. !
I, myself, have used NFCUS to obtain an exchange scholar-;
ship to the University of Toronto this year. This scholarship has ;
been worth $300 to me in tuition fees.
Also, NFCUS operates a student travel service, an Art contest
(with, I believe, a scholarship as a prize), a student discount serv- j
ice, a scholarship campaign (which netted about $100,000 for
Ontario students), and also, I believe you can get your life insurance at lower rates than ordinary through NFCUS. So much
for thc financial benefits.
Now show us some intangible benefits, you argue? These, I
admit, are hard to show. First of all, however. I will begin on the
international level. NFCUS sends delegates or observers to
COSEC and 1US. No organization that is not national would do |
so. Thus, we have Canadian students represented at international i
conferences. These conferences perhaps help promote a little more
understanding between Eastern and Western bloc students.
Also, in the annual conferences, the student representatives
have an opportunity to meet the student representatives of other •'
universities and to get many ideas from them. Finally, the NFCUS
exchange students such as myself should provide a spur to activity
in both the university which they visit and the university to
which they return. I believe that they can do so because of the l
wide range of activity which they have. I have tried to do so
nere in Toronto, and certainly intend to do so next year at UBC.
For these reasons, fellow students, 1 would urge you not
to allow your membership in NFCUS to lapse, as University ot
Toronto has for Ihe next year.
Ilowrver, with regard to Toronto U., I believe that they will
rejoin either at their last SAC (Students' Administrative Council)
meeting this year or else next year very early in the year. Already
there are many manoeuvres afoot to rejoin. As a matter of fact the
motion to withdraw from NFCUS just made it through the SAC
by tho skin of its teeth. The reportedly large majority against
NFCUS either rapidly changed or did not exist.
-—Henry Johns
McGill, Manitoba and Acadia
universities — detrac t from
NFCUS's strength as a lobbying group, and impede the establishment of a strong and
vital national office by the
loss of approximately $14,000
which these schools would pay
in membership fees.
2. There was an appalling
lack of leadership and direction
from the executive which resulted in aimless, uninformed
and heated debates among the
delegates on matters which
could have been readily decided if the executive had presented firm and reasoned propositions. At the conference a
school of 600 enrollment and
paying $300 national fee is given an equal vote with a school
of 6,000 enrollment and paying
a $3,000 fee. This situation is
fine on discussion or policy
matters, but there is a justified
objection when the smaller
schools can out-vote the larger
schools on the appropriation of
the budget—the bulk of which
is provided by the larger universities. In Edmonton, for
example, UBC was opposed to
the expenditure of $1200 for
publications, $325 for membership cards, and $150 for an
International Scholarship, Yet,
we were, in effect, powerless
to state how we wanted our
important contributions spent.
The Conference felt an overwhelming need to justify the
existence of a full time National Federation of Canadian University Students. Consequently the plenary session approved such doubtful measures as
giving each member student
a NFCUS cord, and calling the
regional vice-presidents regional presidents.
The national office is overburdened with work in relation to the size and quality
of its staff. If NFCUS hopes
to have a continuing record
of major accomplishments it
should be administered by one,
or possibly two, top flight Executive secretaries. The organization might well follow tho
effective example of the World
University Service of Canada
in this regard. The transience
of the conference delegates has
made any reform in NFCUS's
structure difficult, and it has
been necessary for the same
ground to be passed over at
every conference. Much of this
over-lapping could be alleviated by a capable and continuing
staff at the national office.
The Conference is aware of
its many faults, and il was decided in Edmonton that a study
should be made throughout
the year and a report presetted
to the 1956 Conference Although this plan sounds hopeful, it must be remembered
that in 1956 there will Iv almost all new faces arounn Hit'
Conference table, most of
whom will not yet have .-eeii
the urgency for reform.

"Please  Stay   In";
NFCUS   President
Editor's Note: Typical and
representative of the concern
felt across Canada by NFCU8
supporters over the UBC decision is the following letter from
Peter Martin, NFCUS President.
On February 20, the Students'
Council at UBC passed a motion recommending to the General Meeting of March 15 that i?
vote to withdraw from the National Federation of Canadian
University Students and that
funds allocated to the National
Federation be set aside to hold
a student council president's
conference. Unfortunately, because of budgetary limitations,
I have been unable to visit UBC,
but, with your permission, I
would like to use this opportunity to speak directly to the
students of British Columbia.
Canadian student unity is a
fragile thing. The distances separating the universities of Canada prevent students from all
over the country from meeting
together more than once a year
to discuss the problems of student government and to decide
Ihe role to be played by the national student organization.
Aside from this one meeting,
the student bodies of Canada
are kept together and are enabled to act together through
the tenuous Unkings of the National Federation. We have
struggled for years to strengthen these linklings and to build
an effective, functioning national student organization. Now,
the students at UBC are invited
to decide to destroy this work
by establishing what can only
toe called a separatist movement. UBC's withdrawal from
the National Federation could
only have one possible outcome;
it 'could only hurt the interests
of the students at UBC and at
every university and college
dn Canada, Canada cannot afford
the luxury of two student organizations, nor can Canadian students afford the luxury of losing the impressive voice in the
affairs of the country which
(they   have   gained,   and   they
would certainly lose it if the
National Federation were split
in two by the sort of movement
which your Students' Council
Such a blow as this would
be especially disruptive at a
time such as this when the
Federation is in a period of
expansion. Memorial University
of St. John's, Newfoundland.
Sherbrooke University of Sher-
brooke, Quebec and Marianapol-
is College of Montreal are all
negotiating to join the Federation. In addition, McGill University and Acadia University
of Wolfville, N.S. are both negotiating for re-entry into the
Federaton after their withdrawal last year.
As new members join the
Federation it becomes an increasingly more effective instrument in your hands. If you
should withdraw from the National Federation, its value for
the students of Canada would
be correspondingly decreased,
and its value to UBC would,
of course, be nil.
I do not wish to dwell here on
the activities of the Federation
UiLs year these have been report (
ed regularly in this paper and
you have seen evidences of some
of them on the bulletin boards
around the university. However,
I would like to say that the
Federation has been more active this year than ever before,
both on the national level and
on the local level. This resurgence of activity is to continue
next year and to be expanded.
To repeat the point I made
earlier, at a time when university enrollments are expanding
and when the problems faced by
student governments all across
the country are increasingly
manyfold, the National Federation needs the full support of
every student in Canada if it
is to do the things which must
be done.
Finally, I would like to remind you of what happened
last year. In a referendum held
in March, you voted 1248 to 515
to rejoin the National Federation. It would seem to me, and
to the other student bodies in
Canada, a very strange thing
if this careful decision were reversed this year.
1 hope that you will consider
the viewpoint presented in this
letter and that you will vote
with understanding and good
faith at the General  Meeting.
In  or  Out? Here's
The Background
(Editor's Note: Pro and Con opinions on the
value of NFCUS are presented elsewhere on
this page. The following give the background
on the decision facing UBC students today.)
1. Last October, Councillors Ron Longstaffe and Ron Bray
attended the annual NFCUS conference in Edmonton. like
many others, they returned dissatisfied with the "unwieldy"
organization, and the "petty bickering" at the conference.
2. So a committee to investigate the value of NFCUS was
set up at UBC, which sifted all evidence* and recommended last
month that UBC withdraw, but that UBC take the initiative
in forming a national Students' Presidents Association to replace
3. A minority report was also presented to Council by
Marc Bell, this year's NFCUS Committee Chairman. His report took the view that NFCUS, although unsatisfactory, could
be reformed if UBC stayed in. |
4. University of Toronto, Manitoba, McGill and Montreal
have already withdrawn from NFCUS. Alberta last week
voted to stay in. But if UBC withdraws today, it will be the
straw that breaks the camel's back. NFCUS officials say the
organization is doomed If UBC withdraws. .
5. Worried NFCUS big-wig John Sherman has flown
from Alberta to speak at today's meeting.

NFCUS  for  that   reason.  UNB, j

Dear Mr. Bray: J
It was with great disappoint-.
ment   that   I   learned   recently!
of   your   Council's   decision   to;
hold a referendum on the ques-1
tion of your University's mem-j
bership   in   NFCUS,   with   the j
recommendation   that   the   stu-'
dent   body   vote   in   favour   of j
withdrawal    from   the   Fedora-j
tion.  I   am  not opposed  to  the |
referendum—we   here   at   VKB :
have   recently   had   one  of   our
own in which the students voted:
4nl to 190 in favour of remaining   in   NFCUS.   What   1   find
difficult   to   understand   is   the;
recommendation  made by  your
Council   that   the   students  vote1
against remaining a member of
the    Federation,    and    coupled |
with   that,   the   suggestion   that
a   new   organization,   witli   Student Council Presidents only, as ,
members, be formed. i
In the past, Universities have i
dropped   out   of   NFCUS   for   a
number of reasons—.chiefly financial,   but   also   because   they'
fell   that   the   organization   was \
not    performing    properly   the
task  which   it  was supposed  to;
be doing. Your Council's recommendation    seems    to    indicate
something new, and to my mind, \
much more serious—a complete j
overlooking of the fundamental:
purpose of NFCUS, and one j
of the most important reasons I
for its existence. j
NFCUS  is  our  National  Un-j
ion   of  Students,  a  fact  which
your Council is probably quite
aware of, but which seems fre- J
quently to be overlooked in our
materialistic   world   of   today,
As such, as our National Union
of Students, it allows us a united representation, firstly, on a
National   level,   and   secondly,
and   probably   most   important
oij   all,   on   the   Internaltional
scene, j
The International situation to-;
day, in Student Affairs is one!
in which Canadian Students can i
ill afford not to be represented, i
Without a National  Union of;
Students we would immediately
lose our right to representation,
on thc International-scene. From'
what I have said above I think !
it   should   be   obvious   that   we
cannot afford to  take an  isola-:
tionist  stand.   For   one   thing   it '
would   represent  a   slap   in   the
lace lo students  of  other  coun-'
tries—for   Canada,   whi li    all
along   has   represented   such   a
power   on   the   scene,   suddenly j
to withdraw into seclusion. They ,
could   not   help   but   draw   thej
conclusion    that    we   were   no
longer interested in  their problems.
In view of the recent with-,
drawal of Toronto from NFCUS, \
I am greatly concerned over the i
probable outcome of your own
referendum, because should the \
students at UBC decide to with- j
draw at this time I can fore- i
see nothing but the total vol-
lapse of the Federation.

One suggestion of the committee, which is not directly
pertinent to this report, is that
UBC—to promote unity and
interest with other Canadian
universities—should schedule
as many athletic events both at
home and away as possible,
with time schedules and limited finances. It is felt that Athletics is the most popular medium through which a sense
of unity can be achieved.
However, the majority feels
that the worthwhile aspects of
NFCUS can be continued and
promoted without a full-time
staff operating in Ottawa.
Their proposal is that the Student Presidents across Canada
meet annually to discuss and
exchange ideas and information on their mutual problems
and needs. The cultural competitions could be mandated as
they are now and prize money
raised from private industry.
UBC attends the annual Pacific Student President's Association convention to which
over 200 delegates from 85
schools come to discuss their
mutual problems and exchange
ideas and information. The
P.S.P.A. constitution forbids
lobbying motions of any nature. It was found that when
schools attempt to prove a
point, disharmony is created.
Delegates are left free to adopt
whatever views they wish from
the discussion rather than being limited by the expression
of a view by majority vote.
Goodwill is preeminent at the
convention and the representa«
tives return to their respective
schools at liberty to implement what suggestions they
feel will be of value and im.
provement to their campus.
From the 1955 P.S.P.A. con-
ventiort UBC delegates put into
operation a Leadership Conference and an Accident and
Benefit Plan. Our student gov
eminent was visibly improved.
It Is the majority's recommendation that UBC withdraw
from NFCUS and in conse-
quence work actively towards
the staging of a Student Presidents' Conference. The delegates to such a Conference
