Service Plans
The University of B. C. administration has informed

"""        "        Scholastic  ability   should   not

WAD.
The recommendation was
contained in a motion passed
at the November 7 meeting of

Members of the Students'
Council meet to-day with Mr.
S. Siynui.'idsom general manager of transportation lor BCE.
to discuss the current, issue of
student   bus   fares.
Council will attempt to reach
some alternative to the present
rate, which amounts to fifty
cents a day for most students.
Proposed    alternative    would
be the purchase by students of
monthly passes,  to be effective |
certain  hours of the day. !
The Council will take the
matter to Dr, Harry Purdy, executive vice-president of the!

are not obtained from today's
meeting.
"It is time the food service
problem was dealt with in a
more practical manner," said
George Feever, chairman of
food services committee, student
section.
"It is amazing that students
have accepted this treatment as
long as they have," he stated.
"The   situation   might   easily
be  described  as  deplorable,  or
shockingly     inadequate,     with
little   danger  of  being   accused j
of exaggeration," he continued. J
Feaver suggested that one j
solution might be to invite j

GUEST  EDITORIAL
Bus Fares
That bulwark of monopolism in British Columbia, the
B. C. Electric Company, has done it again.
To satisfy the greed of its owners it not only raised the
city bus fares by a considerable percentage this week; it
also made sure that UBC students pay their share for the
wealth and glory of the BCE.
Now, we do not believe in making a political-emotional
issue of this type of thing. But there is no need to agitate.
The facts are provocation enough.
Starting this week, the student fares for the UBC bus
have been raised from 40 to 55 cents for 10 tickets. This
is an increase of almost 40r r. We wouldn't exactly call that
making small profit.
Those who argue that this, after all, is only a matter
of a few cents, shoud try to add those few cents up for
every day, every week, every month. They then would
discover that all those students who depend on the UBC
bus have to pay considerably more for their education than
they anticipated at the beginning of the school year. And
this group is in the majority, if for no other reason than
that the smelly and crowded dormitory facilities are inadequate.
But not only that. MANY OF' THE STUDENTS WHO
have to take that bus are usually the ones to whom going
to University i.s a finnnral sacrifice to begin with. They
just can't afford a ear and ihey are too poor to rent an on-
campus home.
To put it into a nutshell: It now costs more to got
educated because the BCE wants higher profits, period.
This BCE attitude is a far cry from the policy many
other big corporations go by. These corporations freqently
support educational institutions, give scholarships to good
students, and generally help to raise the levels of our
culture.
The BCE seems to clo just the opposite. Whether or
not they too give out scholarships, this is certainly more
than being balanced by the way they are fleecing our students of the little money — if any — the latter possess.
One could almost get tho impression that the BCE likes to
see a minimum of people getting a higher education. Perhaps, the BCE figures that a large body of morons will
serve its purposes best.
What is to be done about this? One possibility would
be an UBC bus boycott, patterned alter the famous Montgomery bus boycott in the Southern U. S. For this, strong
leadership and organization are a prerequisite. Another
possibility would be a strong protest note from official and
recognized student organizations to such institutions a.s the
Public Utilities Commission, the BCE, the City Council.
the Provincial Government, the University President, and
so on.   This might or might not produce results.
There are other — less peaceful — methods that could
be applied. For example, students could pievenl the
buses from moving by simply surrounding them. Or they
could go en masse into each waiting bus and simply refuse
to pay the increased fare. This too, would need very good
organization: and the legal angles of such action better be
carefully studied first by experts.
But something should be done. If we just look on
like a bunch of idiots, and let the ''poor" BCEi fill its pockets at the expense of our education, the next thing we'll
know will be another fare increase whenever the BCE
feels like doing so. — M. D,
(Ed. Note: — It is only fair to add that at the time tlus
editorial-was written the writer was-unaware-of Students'
Council's present negotiations with the BCE, which are
described omFivge One of today's Ubyssey).
AMS 'Bureaucratic'
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
If The Ubyssey has reported
correctly, the committee on representative government welcomes suggestions from interested students. But "students
not eligible to attend commit-
ee meetings are asked to submit
their ideas in writing,"
The AMS bureaucratic machinery has decided and ruled
that certain students should
not participate in committees
or executives or represent any
group or club or interest on
campus, if they have not obtained a certain scholastic
standing or if they do not take
a certain amount of units of
work.
The reason for these rules
ha,s been offered that if you
don't have time enough to study
enough for a satisfactory scholastic standing, or if you don't
have time enough or money
enough for a full course, then.
you should be discouraged from
spending any more of your
precious time on committees,
etc., etc.
Today, however, these not-
eligible students are asked to
take the time and trouble to
work out their ideas about representative government, write
them clown and hand them to
the committee where they will
be, as likely as not, filed in the
wastepaper basket.
I will not enter here into a
detailed argument against tbo
eligibility rules. I will just
ask myself:
If my views are admitted
worth hearing, and if I am
asked to spend my time in
writing them down, why should
I not be granted the right and
privilege of supporting them in
person, discussing them, hearing the opposing views, etc.,
He , i.e. why .should I be refused the benefits of an active
campus life?
T know why: because the
coiislitul ion says so.
Yours  sincerely,
THEMIS I\
(Ed. Note: — It should be
pointed out here that planners
of lhe committee on representative government found that
to have more than the present
35 members on ihis .jommillee
would make it unwieldy.
It should also be pointed out
that the committee on representative government is at least
less "bureaucratic" than many
Students' Council committees
which have not publicly welcomed outside suggestions).
Hot Air
Editor, The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
"In the United States everybody  gets free  education."   	
(Ralph Bellamy, Comm. I, quoted in The Ubyssey, Thursday,
October 20).
Hots air. Mr. Bellamy obviously knows nothing about the
education system in the U.S.
Therefore he has no right to
speak at all, let alone so emphatically.
In the U.S., all public school
education in grades 1 to 12 is
paid for by the taxpayers -■■-
whether you have children in
school or not. Tough husk on
those parents who send their
charges to private schools,
Each State has a University
which is supported to a great
extent by the State government. Students have to pay
their, tuition, room and board;
etc.    in spite of this aid,
The only free education one
might get is through scholarships and even then they often
do not cover all tuition charges.
Most cities now have Jaycees.
These are supported by city
governments and something
else for which the taxpayers
contribute. But don't get the
idea this is free. You, as a
student, have to pay good
green backs for every course
you take. Granted, it is very
little, and so is the education
you receive.
UBC students should be
damn thankful they are paying
so little in relation to the educational opportunities they are
receiving!
Yours truly,
VAL McDERMOTT,
Formerly of U of SC,
Now of UBC
P.S.— U.S. college students
have 2V*> months summer vacation.
Supports Asadi
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In support of Mr. Asadi, may
I suggest that Mr. Fulford examine the Koran. H-? will find
evidence of the prophet Mohammed's acceptance of Christianity and a statement to the
effect "that those who call
themselves Christians, will be
amongst your friends".
We are equally guilty of aberration as Christians, however,
it is safe to assume that Mr.
Asadi referred to the Islamic
creed and not the general practice thereof.
Yours truly,
D. R. S. HARVEY,
Arts I.
Lenin
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Many persons have been
prese'iting their views lately
on the nature of communism
and lhe communist.
Rather than present my own
views on the subject, I will reveal the thoughts of one whose
ability and authority will not
be questioned insofar as this
topic is concerned. Lenin was
such a man.
Let us see what Lenin had
to say:
"The Soviet .Socialist Democracy is in no way inconsistent
with lhe rule and dictatorship
of one person: lhat the will of
a class i.s at times best realized
by a dictator who sometimes
will accomplish more by himself and is frequently more
needed . . ."
Thursday, November 13, 1958
i  ——
(Collected Works, 1923 Edition, Vol. XVII, p. 89).
"A Communist must be prepared to make every sacrifice
and, if necessary, even resort
t/'all sorts of schemes and stra-
tegems, employ illegitimate
methods, conceal the truth, in
order to get into the trade
unions, stay there, and conduct
the revolutionary work within
(Ibid., Vol. XVII, pp. 142-45).
"We say: "Morality is that
which serves to destroy the old
exploiting society and to unite
all the toilers around the proletariat, which is creating a new
Communist society.'."
(Ibid., Vol. XVII, pp. 321-23).
"No parliament can in any
circumstance be for Communists an arena for strufgle for
reforms for betterment of the
situation of the working class
. . . The only question can be
that of utilizing bourgeois state
institutions for their destruction."
(Ibid., Vol. XXV, p.  149).
The Communist Party has
repudiated Stalin, but it has
never repudiated Lenin.
In closing, I should like to
point out that the Co-operative
Commonwealth Federation —
(CCF) — is a democratic Socialist party, and is therefore
opposed to any form of dictatorship, including Communism.
Yours truly,
BILL PIKET,
UBC-CCF Club
Needs Assistance
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I wish, through The Ubyssey,
to seek assistance from students in locating my motorcycle which was stolen from
the Fort Camp cycle shed sometime Monday night or early
Tuesday morning. The following is a description of it: Model
BSA Bantam (125 cc). color,
maroon, with black headlight.
A light frame or rack is also
mounted over the rear fender.
It has a single seat. The front,
left side of the gas tank is
deeply dented. Licence number is (BC '58) 934.
I will be most grateful if any
person seeing il; will contact
the university detachment of
the RCMP (Alma 0162) immediately. A reward is offered
for its capture!
Yours .sincerely,

Madame Segelcke is a truly

new insight into their intellectual content. This actress uses
every facet of herself to create a
wide range of characters. Compare her sleep-walking Lady

Madame Segelcke uses very
little make-up. She hides behind no masks. Her acting technique is open and big, and yet,
because of the inspired creative
instinct behind all she does,
there is a sense of mystery. At
times, the effect was hypnotic.

Controversial  Play Tonight
Tonight, Friday ond Saturday,
the Players' Club will present
three one-act plays in the Auditorium. Curtain time is eight-
thirty, and tickets from 75 cents
are obtainable at Modern Music
and the AMS office. The three
plays are "The Lesson", "Blue
Duck's Feather and Eagle Down"
and "Gammer Gurton's Needle."
Eugene Ioncsco, author of
"The Lesson", is a Rumanian-
born pUiyright domiciled in
Paris whose plays trail controversy like comets across the
skies of the theatrical world. To
pursue the analogy and elaborate on the controversy, the astrologer-critics cannot agree as
to the importance of these1 plays:
are they only temporary' astonishments, shooting-stars falling
through the consciousness of our
period into oblivion's night, or
will they eventually be seen to
have liie permanence of a Hal-
ley's cornel, a significance which
will guarantee them a fixed orbit
in the dramaturgical firmament'.'
There can be no question that
M. Ionesco's themes are highly
relevant. Hi.s plays testify to
the difficulty of communication
between individuals in our ego-
bound era; speak, too, of universal neuroses bred by an age of
anxiety, and of a distrust of Progress, which, like a malignant
cancer, threatens to destroy the
body which fostered it. M.
Ionesco's self-declared intent is
"to discover the fundamental
problem common to all mankind", lo explore "the true road,
into my own darkness, our darkness, which 1 try to bring to the
light of day."
So far, so good. How does he
get his message across1' Or does
he? For hero is the point at
which the critics fall upon one
another with drawn umbrellas.
Here lies the charge which has
exploded in his direction such
sharp fragments of abuse as
"anti-realist", "mes.siah of gibberish," "saboteur ol the Theatre". Here, in hi.s mode of expression, we may find evidence
to support the play goer who,
emotionally disturbed but intellectually frustrated, has left
an evening vvith Ioncsco complaining of capricious obscurantism and esoteric attitudinizing.
Let us examine "The Lesson" for corroboration or refutation of these remarks. To recount the plot loo exactly would
be   lo destroy  the suspense  for
tonight's audience: enough to
say it concerns a Professor and
his girl-Pupil and a Maid, who
are seen working out the theme
of difficulty of communication,
the hopelessness of understanding others through the medium
of language now that, as Au-
den  writes:
All words like peace and love,
All   sane   affirmative   speech,
(Have)    been   soiled,    profaned,
debased
To a horrid mechanical screech.
The Professor fires idea after
idea at his Pupil, with all the
industry   of   a   Cape   Canaveral
.scientist launching satellites:
but the ideas, like the satellites,
never reach Iheir goal. It is noi
all the gill's built. There seems
lo be something amiss with the
Professor's tiring mechanism.
Action, violent, shocking action, is now his only remaining weapon; he communicates
at last, and the manner in
which he does this may be the
reason for Ihe "Adult Entertainment Only" label attached
lo this production by lhe Players' Club. Is there enough obscurantism to justify our intellectually frustrated playgoer" I think so. W h e n 1VI.
Ioncsco expounds on his favourite  theme  by  making  his char-
winner of the Centennial play-
writing competition, is not in
the same class. Nevertheless, it
has a certain interest for one
like myself who did not see
"World of the Wonderful Dark"
last summer: for it is a play
about the B.C. Indians. I
might acid that I find amusing
the irrelevance of celebrating
a hundred years of European
pioneering by producing plays
about Indians: it smacks of
Freud knows what psychological implications. Rona Murray's
play has something to say about
collective guilt, too. Her plot
concerns an Old Whaler persecuted by and isolated from the
community which owes him a
burdening debt of gratitude.
This Nootka Christ is the chief
character in a play which is
not devoid of highly dramatic
miomenls, and which contains
in its blank verse some unexpectedly good sensuous imagery. This production is directed by Peter Mannering,
who has displayed in past years
a knack for gelling the most
out of Campus actors; one hopes
he will once again be successful.
''Gammer Gurton's Needle,''
according to Harbage, is "far
from being lhe quaint diversion
of simple spectators, a sophisti-
acters  continually  out of  touch   cated genre piece, written  by a
University fellow for University
auditors." The University fellow in question, however, lived
four hundred years ago: "sophisticated" is the last adjiT-
tive I would apply to this play.
II is larded with lines like,
"Ere she had lake two stitches
to clout upon thine arse" and
"Fie, sliitten knave!" and roads
like a goody bawdy farce. May
Michael Rolheray's direction
and a lively cast concertina
Harbage's description and make
Mie play a diversion for University    auditors!
DAVID   BROMIGE
with one another, he is obscure and, ironically, fails to
make his point. But remember
that this same play-goer was
emotionally disturbed. If Arthur Marguet, Penny Gaston,
Aileen Barker and their director Joan Reid do their job well,
vve should be similarly affected.
M. Ionesco, perhaps, would be
content   with   that.
I have devoted the greater
part of this preview lo "The
Lesson" because I think il the
most ambitious attempt by the
Club, "P. hie Duck's Feather
and     Fagle     Down",     although

Political Party Platforms For Election Friday
CCF
LPP
If there wasn't a CCF, how
would you vote? Progressive
Conservative?—the name itself
spells confusion. But then, so
do its politicies. Liberal?—a dying party who a short time ago
was described by Time Magazine as "the weak and flabby".
Social Credit?—you'll have
your own description for that
one. LPP?—hardly a party, but
one which has managed to build
for itself one of the most revolting records in Canadian
political history. If you thought
carefully over the records of
these four parties you would
probably not want to vote at
all.
Fortunately, however, there
is a CCF, and it deserves both
your support and your vote.
The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF), like
the Labour Party of Britain,
is part of the worldwide democratic socialist movement, which
brings to people everywhere a
vision of a society in which voluntary co-operation will replace
"dog-eat-dog" competition as
the guilding principle of society.
The CCF has strong support.
In B.C., the CCF forms the official opposition under the able
leadership of Robert Strachan
MLA, who will speak here later
this session. The CCF, in the
last provincial election, was
supported by one out of every
three voters and, in all likelihood, will form the next government of this province. In
the federal field, where we are
one of the three major parties,
three well known newspapers
had this to say; "Opposition's
role assumed by CCF."—Montreal Gazette, "The CCF is the
only party which knows precisely where it is going and
what it stands for,"—Financial
Times, "CCF m o s t active of
Opposition parties,"—Nanaimo
Free  Press.
The CCF fights for and will
implement—
A PLANNED ECONOMY — to
bring Full employment, Industrial Peace, End of U.S. Economic Domination, and a Fair
Share of Canada's National Income to every Canadian. You
would not build a house without a plan. Why a nation?
AN INDEPENDENT FOREIGN
POLICY—recognition of and
trade with China, vastly increased economic aid to Africa,
Asia, South and Central America. Support of Permanent U.N.
Police Force. Economic offensive against Communism.
OTHER MATTERS—Free University Education, Welfare
State, Bill of Rights in Constitution, Indiscriminatory but
planned  immigration  policy.
If only for the sake of political education, you should see
a CCF government in action.
Try the CCF at UBC. Remember, for political and economic
democracy—Vote CCF.

SHIRTS
Professionally Laundered
The Labour Progressive Party offers the only alternative to
the Liberals and Tories whose
policies have brought us perilously close to national disaster.
Through 10 years of "integration" with the United States we
have lost much of our national
independence, are now threat'
ened with an economic crisis;
and have been drawn ever nearer to involvement in an atomic
war.
The ultimate solution to
these problems lies in the establishment of a Socialist society in our country.
This is the long range goal
of the L.P.P. However, certain
steps to promote peace, stave
off a depression, and restore
our sovereignty, must be taken
immediately.
An L.P.P. government will:
IN INTERNATIONAL
AFFAIRS
• Urge the United States,
the USSR, and Britain to ban
the production and testing of
nuclear and thermo-nuclear
weapons.
• Recognize the government
of the People's Republic of
China and call for her seating
in the U.N.
• Press for the disbanding
of all military alliances, including NATO, the Warsaw-
Pact, SEATO, and the Baghdad
Pact.
• Withdraw the Norad and
refuse to allow U.S. bombers
and fighters the right to fly
over Canadian territory. ,
• Propose the establishment
of a "neutral zone" in Europe.
• Reduce military spending
by 50',;.
• Begin trade with all countries irrespective of their social system. Accept foreign
currencies, encourage barter
agreements, ^rant long-term
credits.
• Facilitate arrangements
for exchange of student, cultural, and athletic delegations between Canada and the Socialist
countries as a means of reducing international 'tension.
IN NATIONAL, AFFAIRS
• End the give-away policy
on natural resources which
was started by the Liberals and
has continued under the Tories.
• Cut taxes and raise exemptions for the low income
brackets.
• Increase    Unemployment , I
Insurance benefits and extend
the benefit period.
• Give federal aid to the
provinces for education.
• Implement a national
scholarship plan to provide
20,000 scholarships of $750
each.
• Establish a joint federal-
provincial power authority to
develop the Columbia River in
Canada,  for Canada.
LIBERALS
The Liberal Party has an
outstanding tradition of service
to the nation, particularly in
limes of national crisis when,
under t h e leadership of such
statesmen as Sir Wilfrid Lau-
rier and Mackenzie King il has
given Canada good progressive
government—governmnt founded on a political faith and principles which have been in the
past, and are now, unique in
Canadian politics and government.
The political faith of the Liberal Party is founded on the
firm conviction that the citizens of a democratic country
are capable of choosing and
taking part in a responsible and
efficient government through
wlhich the maximum of economic progress and the greatest degree of security and well-
being can be achieved for all
its citizens. These desired results have for the most part
been produced by Liberal administrations, as shown by the
tremendous progress in Canada's
economy under the Mackenzie
King and St, Laurient governments, and by the fact that the
bulk of Canadian social legislation has been introduced by
the Liberal Party. Two examples of this are family allowances and unemployment insur-
*hce.
11]'Other basic principles of the
Liberty Party include a belief in
the desirability of increased international co-operation through
freer trade and through economic and technical assistance
to under developed nations. The
importance of the freedom of
the individual has always been
emphasized by the Liberal
Party, which believes that individual expression and initiative
should not be restricted except
where they interfere with the
similar rights of others.
Today the Liberal Party, under the exceptional leadership
of Lester Pearson, stands ready
to apply its fundamental principles to bring new and dynamic policies to serve the people of Canada. You can express
your approval of this party's
record, principles, and policy
by voting Liberal in the Model
Parliament elections tomorrow.

IF YOU SUPPORT THESE
POLICIES A UBC CONSER-

influence iheir realization.
In the short period of time
that a Conservative Government has served Canada the
foundations of a national development policy has been laid
which seeks to equalize opportunity and raise the standard of
living of Canadians in all our
Provinces.
OUR RECORD
A few points:

Old age, old age assistance,
disabled, Blind, War Veterans Allowance, Widows, Orphans Pensions. All increased
UNEMPLOYMENT
INSURANCE: —
Supplementary benefit period extended from 16 to 24
weeks.
HOME BUILDING LOANS:—-
Increased by $300 million,
resulting in an all-time high
in Winter Home Construction.
INCOME TAX: —
Reduced by $146 million.
ASSISTANCE TO
PROVINCES: —
Increased by 87 million.
AGRICULTURE: --
Cash advance for f'arm-
slored grain, legislation lo
stabilize farm prices.
TRADE: —
Action taken to remedy
Trade Imbalance. Firm stand
taken lo develop Domestic
and Foreign Markets.
DEFENCE: --
Armed service salaries raised. Weapon policy commensurate with the demands of
modern warfare,
SOCIAL CREDIT
We  solicit your vote on  Fri-1
day not because ours is the party   that   champions   the   rights
of   the   individual   or    because |
ours   is   the   party   that   recognizes  the individual's dignity—|
almost all political  parties recognize these things—but we solicit   your   vote  because   of thc|
achievements and dynamic policies   the   Social  Credit  govern-1
ment of B.C. have been able to
make during the past six years.
In the area of University fi-j
nancing,  an area  which vitally!
concerns   each   one   of   us,   we|
are proud to say that the operating grant (i.e. grant for teachers' salaries,  administration expenses, etc.) has increased froml
$1,900,000 in 1952 to $4,334,0001
for 1958.
As far as grants to the  University for capital purposes! (i.e.I
new buildings, dormitories etc.)I
is concerned, in 1955 the pres-1
ent Government agreed to pro-l
vide   $10,000,000   over   a   ten-
year    period.    This    was    the|
amount requested by the President at that time.  It soon became apparent that that amount|
would be insufficient so, in addition,   the  government   agreed I
to  match  dollar for dollar all
monies received from industry,
labour, and private benefactors |
up to  the amount of $10,000,-
000. This, with a federal grant I
of  $5,000,000   will  give  UBC
$35,000,000    for    capital    purposes by 1965. This is an amount
far   in   excess   of   any   amount
previously made available over |
the same period of time.
University   financing   is   just I
one  field   in  which the  Social
Credit     government     can     be
proud. It has and will continue
to   work   with   initiative   a n d I
imagination    on    every    front:
bringing new industry; expand-
ing    employment;     improving I
highways     and     other     public
works;    developing    hydro-electric    power;    assisting    in    the
growth  of  the  basic  industries [
of  lumbering,  farming,   mining
and   fishing;   looking  after  thel
health  of  young  and old,  and
providing social services never
before  experienced in  Canada.
This is a government based on
free  enterprise   but  steadfastly
opposed to monopoly; a govern-
Iment   Ibelievjng   in   social   re-[
forin. but not socialism.
For   these   reasons   we   feell
justifiably     proud     to     solicit!
your  vote  in  the Mock  Parliament  election  to   be  held this!
Friday on  campus.

CLUB NOTES
Socreds Sponsor Massey Lecture On Deas Island Tunnel
Mr, George Massey, MLA,
will show colour films and
speak on the Deas Island Tunnel on Thursday, November
13. at 12:30 in Buchanan 106,
under the auspices of the Social Credit Club.
Massey is well qualified to
discuss the tunnel project, according to Club officials as he
studied navigation in technical school and has taken great
community interest in the
project.
He has served on the Tunnel and Crossing Committees
of the Delta Board of Trade,
as well as being vice-president
of the Lower Fraser River
Crossing Improvement Association.
Voters Pass
AWS Change
Students Friday voted in favour of changing the name of
the Women's Undergraduate
Society to Associated Women
Students.
A total of 1,397 votes were
cast, 1,683 which were in favour of the change.
Voters were urged to vote
"yes" on the referendum for
these reasons: WUS does not
accurately name the organization but implies that it is merely an undergraduate society.
WUS is often confused with
World   University   Service.
Finally, by changing the
name to AWS, the possibility
of forming a national organization would increase.
The referendum stated "that
wherever the words 'Women's
Undergraduate Society' or the
letters 'WUS' appear in thc constitutions of the Alma Mater
Society and subsidiary organizations, they be replaced by the
words 'Associated Women Students' and 'AWS' accordingly.
Massey  was  <lected  to  the
Legislature   in   1i/56   and   has
represented the Delta constitu-
ecy.

Students
Threaten
To Disband
Students of the University of
Ottawa have threatened to disband their Council and all
student activities if faculty and
administration continue to dictate student policy.
Issue from which this blowup has arisen was the firing of
five editors from the student
paper "la Rotonde", for the
criticism levied' in the paper at
the "paternalism" of thc University administration.
According to U.B.C. Council
president, Chuck Connaghan,
the firing of the student editors
was discussed at the recent
N.FiC.U.S. conference at Ottawa University.
Delegates from U.B.C. and
the University of Saskatchewan
decried the fact that student
papers were dictated to by administration, and a motion was
passed to give complete support
of the students involved.

HOMECOMING
BIGGER, BETTER
By PHIL GOVAN
(PRO Homecoming Committee)
Last year's Homecoming could only be considered a qualified success due to a combination of a long week-end mediocre
entertainment, and a large burst of student apathy.
* The Homecoming Dance was perhaps the biggest disappointment of all, when contrasted with the sell-out crowds of
former years. Last year, for the first time, two dances were:
operated, and this, plus a featured entertainer, whose performi'
ance is best described as lousy, cast a pall which took a long ;■■
time to settle. j
Learning from their experiences of last year, the Homecoming Committee have made a real effort to make tHls year
a colossal success. The program starts off with iji'Rep ih^fet
today at noon featuring the best entertainment 4katim<ihey ^an
buy for a noon hour show. On Friday night, this year'sty^m
will play a team of basketball greats from the past six yfe'ars
who have never failed to provide an exciting evening.
The parade on Saturday morning will be bigger and better
than ever. Best of all we have a football team playing Saturday afternoon that has won three of its last four games, and
are hot to make that four out of five.
The big dance on Saturday night will feature Mart Kenney
and his troupe and vvith the tickets down to S3.00 per cpuple,
it's an event no one can afford to miss.
All in all a first class program for a promising weekend.
WELCOME BACK
ALUMNI
By   JOHN   HAAR
(UBC Alumni Director)
This year marks tho Fiftieth Anniversary of the p.'-issing of
the University Act.    Since that time
<ivoi> 23,000 ol  vou have
passed through the classrooms, and under the guidance of a
large number of professors. One thing which will be impressed
upon you today i.s the realization that you have changed, and
so has the University.
The never-ending task of building and expansion goes on,
and this year there is ample visual proof of Ihe endless process
of change. There will be new faces among Facully members,
but plenty of the old with whom, to reminisce.
The same fine traditions that helped to establish your
University are still very much in evidence today, notwithstanding the bigger campus and increased enrolments. "Tuum est"
i.s still the challenge of the time, and is readily accepted by
eager undergraduates of today. You, as Alumni, continue to
meet it by your obvious interest in affairs of education, and by
your contribution to the growth of your Alma Mater.
Homecoming is your opportunity to see how the job is
being done — welcome home, and we hope you will like what,
you see.
In 1922 the University was
housed in temporary buildings
at the Fairview site of the
General Hospital and some of
the accommodation shamed
even the poorest of UBC's present-day army huts. The Province of British Columbia in
1911 set aside a 3000-acre site
at Point Grey for the University campus and in 1914 construction started on the Science
Building and the Faculty of
Agriculture barns. World War I
halted operations and the bare
girders of the Science Building
for ten long years symbolized
the first major disappointment
in the life of the new University.
Shortly before the close of
the 1921-22 term the Students'
Council began to consider a
Student Publicity Campaign
directed at the provincial government. A committee was appointed to-do preliminary planning and canvassing during the
summer vacation. Each student
was armed with a petition containing space for 25 signatures
ana* urged to make a vigorous
canvass during the summer.
CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE
When the fall term started,
an expanded campaign com- j
mittee was appointed. A Varsity Press Bureau was set up
nicfljsent material to all the
JC   Weeklies en^- tirade maga-
jpifies. •}  ■    ;| ■('■''
The pilgfimagetb Poiftt Grey
— it wasn't tailed the Trek
until afterwards — started
Saturday, October 28 with a
parade which formed on the
Georgia Street viaduct and
wound its way through clown-
town Vancouver. At Davie and
Granville the parade broke up
and the students boarded a
fleet of .street cars provided by
the B.C. Electric. There was
much cheering and hullabaloo
as the street cars moved across
Granville' Street Bridge and out
Broadway to TenMi and Sasa-
mat. There the Trek began.
The Itrelfkers formed up by
faculties bjtcliiclasses and started the march over the wagon
trail — it wasn't much better
than that — to the Point Grey
site.
WHOOP-DE-DOO
At the site the men, who had
marched ahead and climebd onto the bare girders of the
Science Building made a general whoop-de-doo. The entire
student body formed a huge
"UBC" on the level ground in
front of the Science Building,
for the benefit of the cameras.
A hot dog and coffee stand was
set up at the side of the road
and profits went to the campaign treasury.
Scores — or was it hundreds? — of Vancouver citizens
followed the Trek in their own
cars and most of the trekkers
got a lift back to town when
the show was over.
CAIRN TOP OPEN
The Cairn which symbolizes
the Trek was a brilliant idea
of the late Professor P. A. Bov-
ing eargerly adopted by the
Campaign Committee. The
Cairn was designed by Messrs.
Sharpe and Tompson architects
of the UBC buildings,,at Point
Grey.
Inside   the   Cairn   is   a   roll
of parchment recording the history of the campaign. The inscription on the outside says
simply "To the Glory of Our
Alma Mater, Student Campaign
1922-23."
After the Trek, on Tuesday,
November 1, 1922, to be exact,
four leaders of the student
campaign went to Victoria to
interview Premier John Oliver
and members of his Cabinet.
DELEGATION
The delegation made such a
go'od impression that they were
invited to address the members, and the House adjourned
to the Members' Room for the
occasion.
In the House, the 56,000
petitions, carried in pomp by
six page boys, were placed before the Speaker, roll by roll.
They now rest in the Provincial
Archives.
One week later — on November 9 — Premier John Oliver announced that the Government would make a grant of
$1,500,000 immediately to start
construction of the university
at the Point Grey site. And
so it was. ''

MARJORIE AGNEW
RECIPIENT OF
TREKKER AWARD
Miss Marjorie Agnew, girls' principal of Vancouver Technical High School has been awarded the Great Trekker Award
for 1958.
Miss Agnew. who is recuperating from a long illness in a
Vancouver Rest Home, received the award from Chuck Connaghan, president of the Alma Mater Society, and Bob Ward,
chairman of the student Homecoming Committee.
At the time when students were still housed in the Fair-
view Shacks adjacent to the General Hospital, Miss Agnew
acted as secretary for the Student Campaign Committee which
staged the Great Trek — the student protest march through
down-town Vancouver to the present Point Grey University
site.
After graduating in 1922, Miss Agnew taught in several
Vancouver schools and founded the Sir Ernest MacMillan
music clubs.
She served on the University Senate from 1951 to 1957 and
has always been an ardent advocate for the establishment of
a School of Music at UBC.
Dr. Alec Agnew, Miss Agnew's brother, will accept the
Great Trekker Award on her behalf at the half-time ceremony
of the Homecoming football game on Saturday.
MISS MARJORIE AGNEW yesterday was presented the Great Trekker Award for
1958 by Alma Mater Society President, Chuck Connaghan, and Homecoming Committee
chairman, Bob Ward. Also present at the ceremony were Col. Harry Logan, editor of
the Alumni Chronicle, Aubrey Roberts, chairman of the UBC Development Fund, and
Homecoming vice-chairman, Pete Meekison. Miss Agnew was delighted, she said, to
accept the Cairn Trophy and also a miniature   of the trophy.

While they ran and passed
the Oregon team off the field,
the Birds also came up with a
surprisingly strong pass defence, which completely bottled up the passing game of
Oregon's Jim Bowlen. When
Bowlen wasn't downed by a
hard charging UBC line, his
passes were tipped or knocked
clown by an alert Bird defender.
As a result of the strong
defence, Bowlen completed only
five passed in 15 attempts for
a mere ?>2 yards. On the other
hand, UBC connected on 1.4
tries in  22 attempts.
Laurie Tuttle, taking the ball
from an Oregon player's hands,
scored the first UBC teedee at
the 9:07 mark of the first quarter.
Don Vassos scored his eleventh T.D. of the season and

58 Brings
New Look
On Campus
Alumni returning to the University campus for the Homecoming weekend will probably
shake their heads in disbelief
when they note all the changes
which have occurred due to
construction of new buildings.
And if this transformation
which has taken place in the
last decade is surprising, what
is planned for the future may
sound   unbelievable.
The Buchanan Building, the
pride and joy of the apathetic
artsman has added a new, modern look to the campus. The
$160,000 International House is
almost ready  for occupancy.
The old, old Chemistry Building is also in the process of
getting the new look, with a
wing now under construction.
Estimated time of completion
of this addition is September
1959. Cost is whopping $1,324,-
000.
All three units of the men's
dormitories   on   Marine   Drive!
are well under way. These units
should be ready for out-of-town ,
students    before    the    '59    fall
I term. j
Target date of completion of I
the Biology Building Wing is
also 1959. And the $600,000 Faculty Club Building, a haven for
the faculty and staff is already
taking   shape.
These multi-million dollar
projects, made possible by the
Development fund, are only the
ones already started. j
Even more ambitious and '*
expensive projects have been
approved and are now coming
off the drawing boards. Of primary interest is the new Medical Center, to be built adjacent
to the Wesbrook Building. The
wing for the Library will be
started in the very near future
to provide more studying facilities for  thc  students.
On this, the Silver Jubilee
of the University of British
Columbia, we have seen vast
and sweeping changes take
place, but, in the future, we
may expect to see even more
spectacular additions made on j
thc ever-changing face of the
campus.
$2,000,000 BUCHANAN BUILDINGS gives the campus a
modern look. It is the most spectacular and eye-catching
structure at UBC.
INTERNATIONAL HOUSE is complete and last minute
details are now being ironed out. Rotary Club raised most
of the $160,000 for the Building.
