President's Office received a
wire Wednesday from United

Hammarsfcjqld thanking the
university for a telegram supporting bis  work  at the  UN.
UBC committee of National
Federation of Canadian University Students collected 800 signatures at Open House for a
telegram supporting the Secretary-General   and  the   UN.
Hammarskjold sent the following wire in reply: "I am
deeply grateful to you and all
of the students, faculty and
friends of the University of Bri-
tish Columbia for your message
of support in our work."
The telegram was addressed
to Lt.-GjQV. George Pearkes,

The theft'of the capsule was
not rtdiseovered until Monday
and authorities were afraid the
thief would abandon the capsule where it could be found
by children.
Pojice will not reveal the
identity of the thief, who will not
be charged. He has been advised to see his doctor, although
authorities say he was not in
contact with the capsule long
enough to be seriously injured.
An investigation has been
launched to determine whether
there was negligence involved
in the theft. It will be some time
before results are made public,
according to  authorities.
The capsule was among many
articles stolen by visitors in one
of the worst outbreaks of theft
in  the history of Open  House.

University to give
total of $500000
University administration has agreed to contribute between $450,000 and $500,000 towards the construction of a
student union building and winter sports arena, it was announced Wednesday.
AMS President Dave Edgar
said the UBC Board of Governors agreed Tuesday to pay the
cost of food services facilities
($200,000 to $250,000) in the
proposed $800,000 student union
building. They also said they
would pay half the cost of a
$500,000 winter sports arena.     ;
The Alma Mater Society
would finance :^he rest, Edgar
said. It would t^ke 7 or 8 years
to pay; off the J pecessa^y loan.
He said a referefedum; would be
presented to the students March
17, proposing that the AMS fee
remain, at $24 per student per
year.
This would mean that $5 per
student would be directed immediately toward the fmaneing
•of the proJect.'^^riBs^S previously went to the UBC development fitind.
An additional $5 would" be directed to the building project
in 1962 when the Brock Extension payments are completed.
"Construction of both projects (student union building
and winter sports arena) would
commence as soon as possible,
if the referendum were approv-
*ed by the students," Edgar said.
He said the students would
have complete control over the
union building, with the exception of food services.
"The students would have
equal representation with the
administration on a management comittee to plan the use
of winter sports center."
The student union building
would be the first stage of a
complete student center, Edgar
said.
mediately, would include lounge
and common rooms, galleries*
games rooms, an amphitheatre,
a bag lunch area and a large
snack bar.
The second stage, which
would not be started until the
first stage was paid for, would
house, the administrative wing
of the AMS, together with facilities for clubs and other AMS
organizations.
j Edgar said the first stage had
been planned with sufficient
flexibility to allow for large
dances and banquets.
The building would be constructed on "D" parking lot,
corner of East Mall and University Boulevard.
The winter sports arena plans
call for an Olympic size skating
rink, with seating capacity for
1,500 and eight curling rinks
overlooked by a coffee shop and
gallery.
It woud be built on the field
north of Memorial Gym and
East of the stadium.

1       Well ,it's over for another three years.
Open House, 1961, was successful and those co-ordinating
it deserve a vote of congratulations. Peter Meekison and his
- committee produced one of the best and most diversified events
to the history of the University.
The men of the Engineering Undergraduate Society kept
the traffic flowing smoothly.
The baby-sitters had a rough time we hear. At times there
•were more than 50 squaUers in the room. Chalk it up to experience for the future, girls.
Thanks are due the Department of Buildings and grounds,
for their co-operation in the distribution of the Open House
edition of The Ubyssey and the coffee to the guides.
Sure there were things wrong. In an operation the size
of this year's Open House there are bound to be flaws. They
were, however, of a minor nature.
Congratulations for a job well done. —R.M.
LMen   to   labor
The CCF Club has declared this week as "Labour Week"
and has brought a number of speakers to campus to give an
' impression of Labour's attitudes, complaints, and opinions.
Most people of liberal mind will welcome this programme.
All too often, under the jaundiced views of the press, students
assume or absorb the vews of some professional and non-labour
elenients of society which are unfairly antagonistic to labour
or its aims.
"' "The CCF's program will give those students, who have"
an adopted Set of; ideas towards labour, to meet the representatives of labour arid discuss their criticisms of and opinions
with the "other side."
Regardless of the accuracy of the vews held by .professional,
people, there are a number of considerations any individual
must face.
Whether we recognize it or not, we do not have an egalitarian classless society.
Whether we believe it or not, the iniquities and inequalities
bf the capitalistic order fall most heavily upon the industrial
class.
Whether we like it or not, labour has a voice—often rais-
• understood er contradictory—but still a big voice.
Any attempt by labour to make itself understood cannot,
go \ttdieard; especially at a university. The opportunity has
arisen. We hope ydu have had the chance to take advantage
of it. w.E.t.
Closed   doors
Anyone who thinks that fraternities and sororities are the
only exclusive organizations oil»this campus is making a grave
error.
There is a much more in^Jortarit group ori- this cjimpus
which practices a "closed door*'* policy.
This is the Faculty Club.
During Open House, all buildings were open for public
inspection—with one exception:*tie Faculty Club.
It seems that the general pttblfc is not gbod enough to enter
this building. Perhaps they wou»pollute the- acao%mie atmosphere. ......
-But we weren't really disappointed. After aH; th% Engineering building was open.
Letters To
The Editor
With thanks . .
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:        .
"On behalf of the" Open
House Committee I would like
to thank the students wh4> participated in Open House, 1961.
Special thanks should go to
the 600 girls, whq acted as
guides during the weekend.
They answered innurherable
questions and made the visitors' feel welcome. Recognition is also due the 100 engineers who kept traffic flowing smoothly, and to the girls
who conducted the babysitting
service.
Two other groups assisting
the committee were the students- who manned the information booths and the second
year engineers who erected the
faculty posters and also participated in the Madgeburg
experiment.
Lastly, I would like to express our appreciation of the
time and effort the architecture students spent decorating
the campus.
There is, however another
factor. The services provided
are naught without attractive
and interesting displays. This
year the calibre of displays
was considerably higher than
ever before.
A great deal of student and
faculty thought and effort was
required and put forth. The
committee received perfect
co-operation from all groups
participating. To everyone who
worked on the displays we are
most appreciative rand thankful for their time ' and effort.
When one thinks of the effort expended by', all these
groups, it is difficult to acknowledge-the cries of apathy.
The majority of students contributed to Open House, making it a success. May I again
say, thank you.
— Peter  Meekison,
Chairman, Open House
Committee.

Dear  Sir:
The clientel of the university
are mathematical clots. I grant
that in a Euclidean space, the
shortest distance between two
points is a straight line but I
do not grant that our campus
area is a Euclidean space—it
is. a taxi-cab space.
The shortest distance from
the Buchanan building to Arts
is ndt "over the Administration
building's lawn but rather
along those cement strips called "sidewalks". Nor were the
fences removed in order that
our intellectually superior society might revert to that disgusting archtypal behavior of
lawn-uprooting.
I cannot be critical of my fellow students ueiiavior very
long. The present rate of
growth of pavement on our
campus suggest that by 1965
there will remain six blades '
of crabgrass in the northeast
corner of the Japanese garden.

"Latir/ Baby, when everyone4* net 4& BROWNED off."
IKB-IMIITt.CLlB
By IAN BROWN
Judging by the horrified expressions on some faces over
the'weekend, the new US Presidents are finding out the hard
way that being a Student Councillor is not such a soft touch
as it may look. This week's session, the first joint meeting of
the old and new Councils, avoided becoming an all-night sitting only because it Was split over Sunday and Monday evenings. Such is the price of fame.
Though it is early yet to say how good next year's Council
is likely to be, first impressions are encouraging. There are
signs of a recognition of responsibilty and a general willingness to work together as a team, far outweighing the odd
example of obstructionism and non-cooperation.
v v .j.
Another referendum is being prepared for all you lucky
people; this one, if approved, would decrease the Graduation
Class fee from $10 to $7.
The legislation passed in the spring of 1959, increasing
this fee from $7 to $10, also provided that each graduate
would automatically receive a copy of Totem. Unfortunately,
it did not make clear whether this meant that graduates were
getting their Totems at a subsidized price of $3 (regular price
$4), or whether the fee was in effect being reduced from $7
to $6, with a compulsory $4 being tacked on for Totem.
Needless to say, Totem has been getting its $4 per, and
the Grads are a dollar unhappier. This referendum would
give them their $1 back, and put the sale of Totems to graduates on a voluntary basis.
Pursuing its policy of reviewing the AMS non-discretionary grants, Council took a long (one hour) look at the $1 per
student World University Service levy, and decided to do
something about it.
Unfortunately, it is not clear exactly what they decided
to do. The Finance Committee's intention was that WUS
would receive ~one dollar per student up to a maximum of
$12,000; any additional funds it required would be granted
at the discretion of the AMS Treasurer.
However, due to a regrettable misunderstanding, several
(if not most) Councillors understood that would be fixed at
a minimum of $12,000, regardless of the number of students;
and' what is more important, they voted on that basis.
The practical difference would probably be small, as registration is expected to be fairly close to 12,000 next year.
However, as the principle involved is whether this should
be a maximum or a minimum compulsory grant, and because
this recommendation (to the General Meeting) was passed by
the narrow margin of 12 to 10, Council has no option but to
reconsider this issue next week. EDUCATION

Small town veteran teacher
relates trials and tribulations
This year, to Canada's Universities and Colleges, many
thousands of young people will
come to learn that art of gentle
persuasion, teaching. Since these
establishments vary in their
methods of preparing the young
people for this Honourable Profession, there is a likelihood that
certain phases of their training
may be incomplete, or even entirely overlooked.
To illustrate, I shall discuss
several situations which always
arise—sooner or later—in the
life of a teacher. Unless one has
received proper schooling, these
situations can lead to personal
humiliation, and even to the discredit of the profession.
The proposals to meet these
situations are- modestly offered
as an addition to the professional training of the teacher and, I
am sure, will prove to be of
great practical value.
REGRETFUL SITUATIONS
When introduced, never vol-
• unteer the information that you
are a teacher. People find out
soon enough. In doing this, you
will find that you avoid many a
regretful situation. No need to
smile weakly.tug at our collar
and mutter something about
your mother wanting to give
you a College education. And
you won't have to leave the party early.
I knew a young man who
managed quite cleverly to disguise  the fact  that he was  an
burden, will be aware fo your
true self. But the situation will
arise in certain Circumstances
where you will indeed, stand accused.
This is when a man shows his
true mettle! Stare down the Inquisitor! (Those teachers who
have had the good fortune to
take Phychology 307 will find
it of great value here).
Then you must reply tersely
that you are merely teaching
temporarily, your father having
lost the entire family fortune
on the stock market. You might
even intimate that you are going
to join the civil service, since
you have Friends in High Places.
While doing this, casually
polish your fingernails pn the
lapels of your suit, or flick an
imaginary speck of dandruff
from the shoulder of your accuser. This is sure to demolish
even the most intrepid questioner.
Avoid crowds. This is the best
method of remaining professionally anonymous. You can never
know who might be mingling
with a crowd and it may result
in your being reminded of an old
$20 loan, or of a promise to drop
in and help someone's son with
his Social Studies essay.
Not only that, but you also
run the risk of having a pupil
point you out to his parents. The
best way to avoid crowds is to
stay home, with the door locked.
ARCHIMEDES AND

quite    casually    explained    his

Dp not forget to pause for  effect.
You will immediately be recognized as a Dedicated Public
Servant. At this moment you
must excuse yourself politely,
explaining that you simply must
continue your readings on the
Motivation theory. Then leave
quickly.
I have never yet found how
this quotation can be applied
directly to the teaching of children. Perhaps the name of Archimedes lends it authority, although the strong fulcrum seems
to suggest something made with
Irish whiskey.
CONSIDERATE   BEHAVIOR
Finally, your behayior must
be impeccable. The teacher who
leads a personal life which can
be open to any criticism is deserving of the sharpest criticism. Young ladies who often
begin their teaching careers in
rural schools must be especially careful.
If a local swain comes to call
some evening, as will surely
happen, draw the curtains, and
turn off most, if not all, the
lights. It would never do for
a casual passer-by to glance in
and' see that you are entertaining a male visitor. Your behavior toward school board members
must be even more considerate.
An acquaintance of mine always obtains lodging far from
the school in which he teaches.
The company he keeps and his
As I entered the premises I
was greeted by a large sign reading "Les Plaisirs de Paris". The
whole place was, to coin a well
used but appropriate phrase, a
bee-hive of activity. After very
little inquiry I found out that
everyone was .getting ready for
what they called "The Biggest
and best formal UBC has ever
put on."
The sign which had first
caught my eye was translated
for me as "Parisian Pleasures."
I gathered from all the excitement that this was the biggest dance of the year and that
whoever was putting it on was
.sparing no expense. They had
actually transported some authentic Paris nightlife into the
Commodore so that the attending students would have a really
well   rounded   education.
The big spenders to whom
money was no object, I found,
were the same people who put
on the biggest d a- n c e every
year: ths Faculty of Education
at UBC.
CAN CAN fe CHORUS GIRLS
These spenders had imported
five lines of first class entertainment for their dance.
While questioning the hostess
T found out that the line of high
kicking Can-Can girls had been
flown from Paris only two days
before.
I decided to question one of
the girls in this line about her
missing friend. She told me that
the only reason they had come
all this way was to bring "Les
Plaisirs de Paris" to the eager
male students. Since her English
and my French posed an insurmountable barrier to adequate
communication   I   dropped    my"

Take a firm stand with pa- j carefully chosen. In this manner an occasional debauchery

And so, I add my voice to
that of your Seminar instructors. If, perhaps, sufficient recognition were accorded my advice, (as indeed it merits!) it
could be incorporated into the
training programme of all young
teachers as a compulsory undergraduate   course.  •

The next act was made up of
u line of French dancers in
"Tails and Tights' 'doing some
soft shoe numbers. After this a '
male quartet who had just been
flown in from the "Hungry
Eye" started their rehearsals,
followed by a sexy sextet and a
torch singer.
ENJOYABLE  SURPRISE
By this time the whole affair
seemed so stupendous that I told -
the hostess, who had been show- ■
ing me around, that if I had a
tuxedo and was not living on
a policeman's salary I would like
to go to this dance myself. Her
answer here gave me an extremely enjoyable surprise. t
She said that tickets were
only $3.75 per couple and that
tuxedos were not necessary, but
that ordinary suits of any color
would be in place.
The answer was so agreeable
to me that I said I should like
to bring some of my friends (in
an unofficial capacity) with me.
The Hostess said this was fine
and that we could reserve tables
for large groups by phoning
ahead of time. She said they
were even reserving tables for
v/hole seminar groups, many of
whom were entering the table
decorating contest.
Further investigation showed
no connection between the missing chorus girl and the mutilated body found in the Curriculum Laboratory. So with rny
eyes full of beautiful girls, my
ears full of the lovely voices of
the singers, and a feeling of
warmth in my heart, I bade
"Au revoir" to the friendly
group at the Commodore until

I would like hbn to:

To do his duty but not to forget his rights.
To insist on his rights but not to neglect his duty.
I would also like him:
To have an active creative head, clever, constructive hands,
a loving heart and expressive tongue.
And last, but not least, I would like him to be loyal to his
family as well as his community and since this was proved to
be possible, I want him to be loyal to his community as well

By this we would use education for laying the foundations

'       I am Education.
I bear the torch that enlightens the world, fires the imagination of man and feeds the flames of genius. ' I give wings to
dreams and might to brawn and brain.
From out of the silent shadows of the past I come, wearing
the scars df struggle and the stripes of soil, but bearing in
triumph the wisdom of all the ages. Man, because of me, holds-
dominion over earth, air ahd sea; it is for him I leash the
lightning, plumb the deep and shackle the waves of ether.
I am the parent of progress, the creator of culture and the
molder of destiny. Philosophy, science and art. are my handy
works. I banish ignorance, discourage vice, disarm anarchy.
Thus have I become freedom's citadel, the arm of democracy, the hope of youth, the pride of adolescence, the joy of
age. Fortunate the nations and happy the homes that welcome
me.
The school is my workshop; here I stir ambitions, stimulate
master of human destiny. I am the source of inspiration, the
ideals, forget the keys that open the door to opportunity, the
aid of aspiration, for I am Irresistible Power.
Raising standards in Education can mean two things. It
may mean that, at any given
age or grade level, children
are now reading more books,
understanding more French
vocabulary, tackling more complicated algebra, investigating
more advanced electronics,
learning more histotry than
children of similar age and
capacity were several years
ago.
In other words children
would know more facts, and
understand more complicated
ideas, and perhaps learn more
subjects than previous generations. Their knowledge would
be more up to date and they
would be aware of recent additions to human knowledge.
STANDARDS   IMPROVING
If today's children of age 16
were given one of the academic
examinations set to age 16
childen of ten or twenty years
ago they would, if standards
are now higher, achieve higher
marks than their predecessors.
It should in fact, be possible to measure fairly accurately whether standards are
improving, if raising the level
of Education means increasing
the quantity of knowledge to
be acquired at any given age.
EMPHASIZE QUALITY
Another way of viewing an
improvement in standards is to
emphasize quality. In order to
find out whether standards of
quality in Education are being
raised we must ask different
questions.
Is the child a better person
than his counterpart was 10 or
20 years ago? Is his mind more
alert?
Is he more thoughtfully critical of society around him?
Is he less likely to* be taken
in by the mass media of com
munication, by propaganda, by
advertisement?
EVIDENCE  INADEQUATE
Is he a person who withholds
judgment when evidence is inadequate?
Does he try to see all sides
of any question? Is he inter,
ested in his studies and does
he wish to pursue them further? Has he a variety of interests? Can he use his knowl-
DEAN N. B. SCARFE
edge of history to understand
modern problems.
Can he use his English grammar to write original and imaginative prose in good style?
Can he use his French to converse intelligibly with a
Frenchman? Can he apply his
knowledge of physics to the
repair of a T.V. set?
ORIGINAL AND
CREATIVE
Is he original and creative in
devising experiments in the
science laboratory?
Is   he   resourceful   in   plan
ning illustrations or dramatic
episodes to demonstrate understanding of life in other lands?
Is he constructive in his
dealings with others? Does his
behaviour, outlook and attitudes have clear evidence of
maturity? Is his personality
and character of high quality?
Is he, in fact, showing evidence of personal wisdom and
thoughtful concern for others
in his actions?
Put in other words is his acquired knowledge having a real
effect in making him a gentleman of higher quality than in
previous decades?
QUALITY AND
QUANTITY
Modern Education is concerned with the effect that the
acquisition of knowledge has
on tbe personal development
of the mind. It is, in fact, concerned with both quality and
quantity, but particularly with
quality.
In this it differs from the
traditional emphasis on mem-
oriter recall of facts and ideas.
Furthermore, quality Education requires more highly educated and more highly trained
teachers. Quality education is
more difficult to achieve than
quantity education and it' is
far more difficult to measure.
QUALITY  OF TEACHER
Its success depends so much
more on the quality of the
teacher and on how he teaches
than does traditional Education.
Its success is not measured
effectively by academic achievement examinations alone,
for they tend to emphasize verbal recall. Our present examinations do not test creativity,
originality, imagination, enthusiasm, willingness to continue study or ability to face
new problems courageously.
Need for creative experience
Collection of thought gathered by Mrs. Gouldstone, Art
Instructor at the College of
Education, to show the values
of inclusion of Creative Activities in the curriculum.

teacher will make use of it as
a starting point and means of
education to help children to

"If between the ages of five

our children a training of the
senses through the constructive shaping of materials if we
could accustom their hands and
eyes, indeed all their instruments of sensation, to a creative communion with sounds
and colours, textures and consistencies a communion with
nature in all of its substantial
variety, then we need not fear
the fate of those children in
a wholly mechanized world.
They would carry within their
bodies, the natural antidote to
objective rationality, a spontaneous overflow of creative
energies into their hours of
leisure."
—Sir   Herbert   Read.

"The cultivation of the
sense, by visual and tactile exploration of environment, the
intensification and communal
refinement of feelings in the
group activities this is the essential business of life, and all
other busines is trivial except
as   a  preparation   and   an .un
derpinning to these experiences."
—Lewis Mumford

"But first I shall make some
experiments before I proceed
further, because my intention
is to consult experience first

way. And, this is the true rule
by which those who analyze

opposite course, namely as I
said before, begin with the experience and by means of it investigate the cause."

Chump Commission  Report
Last evening this imposing
document was tabled at the
AMS meeting. It represents
the result of many months of
diligent labor by the commission members and has been
awaited with great anticipation by Faculty, staff and the
students of the University.
ERUDITE AND DIVERSIFIED
The commission was made
up of three very erudite although diversified members.
W.A., (Jes' call me Cece"),
Benet provided opinions and
observations of the common
man, a vital to the broad scope
of the Report.
Benet, who was registered in
third year Civil Engineering
for seven successive years, was
transferred to Buildings and
Grounds in 1959, where he is
now a happy and well adjusted
gravel truck driver. There
were some doubts expressed by
the AMS executive at the time
of his appointment, since he
heard to mutter "I'll get the
bastids now!" however these
fears appear to have been unfounded.
INTIMATE AFFAIRS
The second member of the
Commission, Miss Arabella
Brown, was appointed to make
known the views of the typical
undergraduate of the University.
Both the other members of
the Commission expressed in
glowing terms the success of
their relationship with Miss
Brown during the work of
compiling data for the Report.
ICE WORM FARMING
The editor of the Report and
the chairman of the Commission, E. Noxious Chump,
brought to the Commission the
experience of a successful businessman. A UBC graduate,
(Agriculture 31'), he majored
in what he so succinctly calls
"down   to earth   Agriculture."
The Commission spent many
hours amused by the anecdotes
he told describing his undergraduate days. "Why," he
thundered, "There was a day
when a fella couldnit get out-
ta second year if'n he couldn't
plough that back forty behind
the barns, no siree!"
Mr. Chump has since been
farming, beginning in the Fraser Valley, later moving to the
Okanagan, the Cariboo, then
the Peace River, and now has
a successful ice-worm establishment on the shores of Lake
Athabaska.
SEX ROLE
The Commission was instructed to "Investigate to the fullest extent the State of the
University," with special emphasis on:
1. Competency of the professors,
2. The facilities for enrichment
of the student mind.
3. The necessity of commissionaires,
4. The purpose of the School
of Graduate Studies,
5. The usefulness of the AMS,
6. The sex role of the undergraduate in a University-
conditioned society.
BRAS AND BRIEFS
The Commission obtained
material for their report from
many sources. Briefs were received from EDSOC, MUSSOC,
RADSOC, and DIRTYSOC, *s
well as from EUS, LUS, EdUS,
AUS, BRAS, and NUTS. Closed hearings were held to enable individuals to express
their,  true   feelings  regarding

certain aspects of the University.
The Commission reported
that although these occasionally degraded into sounding
boards for complaints they
were  of some value.
It was reported that a commissionaire was unable to restrain himself when asked to
express an opinion of typical
student conduct, However, as
Commissioner Brown put it,
"He was such a nice man, and
his psyche is now in a much
more balanced condition since
his catharis.
Group discussion, to exchange and obtain information
took several forms. The Commissioners on several occasions
attempted to join the seminar
groups of the Faculty of Education.
This method, however was
not successful, since the students felt that the intimate "Togetherness" so typical of these
seminar groups was disrupted
by the presence of an outsider.
However, a number of these
gatherings were surreptitiously
observed by the Commission,
who later described their observations as "revealing" and
"shocking."
Commissioner Benet spent
several days as an assistant on
one of Buster's tow trucks employed on the campus. He explained that through this
method of research of student
activity he was able to hear
what he described as a "true
expression of student opinion"
of that phase of Campus life.
SWEEPING
RECOMMENDATIONS
The report was quickly but
thoroughly scanned by the editors of EDYSSY who compiled
the major recommendations;
these are:
ENGINEERS MUST GO
The faculty of Engineering
must be discontinued. It was
felt by the Commission that
they are a "subversive influence" on the campus. Their ih-
sistance on wearing the typical red sweaters and jackets in
full view of impressionable
young Frosh was described as
"regrettable."
Their activities, including
demonstration marches, group
singing and chanting, -and mass
demonstrations of strength
could-only stem- from one
Communist Infiltration of the
ranks. The number of Castrolike beards among the faculty
is another unhealthy indication
of a departure from Our Way
Of Life.
Their recent attempt to invade and impose an arbitrary
government over the Faculty
of Agriculture was quoted by
the Commission an an example
of theSr "expansionist tendencies."
The Commission concluded
that not all of the younger
students in Engineering were
necessarily lost, but with an
effort could be helped to adjust by being placed in the
Arts, Education, or Home Ec.
faculties, and thus effect complete rehabilitation.
COURSE IN MANNERS
"UNNECESSARY"
A course in manners and student decorum, complete witn
a weekly two hour lab., compulsory for all freshman was
advocated by all Faculty representatives. However, the
Commission did not agree that
this was necessary.
The habit of students to
stand up, snap books closed,
pull on coats, or mutter to
their neighbor on hearing the
buzzer that ended a class was
lauded by the Commission.
It was attributed to the natural buoyancy and enthusiasm of the student in "eager
anticipation" of his next class.
The fact that the professor usually was still speaking when
the buzzer sounded was regarded as irrelevant.
"Any attempt to stifle this
student enthusiasm," the Report states, "would no doubt
cause complex personality
problems in the impressionable
minds of the young student."
The Commission ruled that the
personality problems of the
professors were beyond its
terms of reference.
ARE THERE REALLY TWO
SEXES? ■      "     '    -
This fascinating problem
was introduced in a brief submitted by a group calling themselves "The Promotion of Student Affairs on the Campus,"
or TPOSAOTC, for short.
This group felt that a course
in HPD at the University level
would be "of widespread interest among students." The
Report, however, was of the
opinion that this phase of a
university education need not
be supplemented.
The Curriculum i laboratory
of the College of Education was
found to be "entirely sufficient to meet the needs of the
student teacher."
The inference contained in
a number of submissions that
the study hall was '.'Hot", "Airless,"   "Stifling"   or   "Stuffy"
have little foundation in fact.
The cause of student headaches
was attributed to overwork.
The recent addition of alarm
bells to the doors which now
prevents them being left open
for ventilation is regarded as a
necessary safety precaution.
The Commission pointed out
that the Curriculum Lab. holds
many volumes of "rare and irreplaceable books that would
tempt an unscrupulous individual."
The Report however, does
recommend that bookings for
the use of the Conference
Room by student groups be
simplified. "Fingerprinting and
loyalty oaths are not deemed
necessary" it concludes.
NO SELF EXPRESSION
Great dissappointment in the
calibre of the professors was
expressed in the report.
While the vast majority of the
instructors had ample academic qualifications, there was felt
to be a definite lack of effort
to motivate the students.
A number of classes of Theoretical Algebra were among
those observed, and in the
words of the report "not a
single instance of self-expression or related learning was
forthcoming  from  the   class."
It was felt that the professors should become more
aware of the subconscious and
aesthetic motivations of the
classes, and that each new
fact which is presented to the
student be an enriching experience never to be forgotten.
COMPULSORY P.E.
The Report recommends in
the strongest possible terms
that P.E. be compulsory in all
but the graduate years for all
students. It is deemed necessary for survival.
An exhaustive survey, involving 7000 students, taken over
a sfct year period gave eondu-.
sive results. A high degree of
. physical fitness is necessary
since an average graduate has

ARCHITECT'S SKETCH of the New Education  Building   which   will   be   completed   by   1964.
New Education Building by 1964
By   JANICE  STEELE,   Ed.  I
As a first-year student in the
Faculty of Education, in 1964 I
am looking forward to working
in a new, well-equipped building. The classrooms will be of
regular size but will be used
only for the education classes.
Each subject requiring, a laboratory will have appropriate accomodations. Subjects such as the
sciences, music, foreign languages and social studies will be
supplied with rooms suited to
their' various needs.
A new Curriculum Laboratory has been   planned   for  the
new building, eliminating the
rundown overheated hut that We
now use.
There will be rooms for further study of the problems of
handicapped children. Here in
the educational clinic diagnostic
and remedial work for handicapped children will be discussed.
Proper accomodations for the
primary division will be set
aside, eradicating the confusion
that is now found in the present
Education building.
A cafeteria which will accomodate up to one. hundred hungry students will be in the base-

We study crafts, music, and fine arts

In this, is there a slackness?
Yet the scorners call as slackers,
And truly they are intelligent men.
We produce teachers who freely give their own time
To activities, clubs, and sports, that a spirit of public

In this are we slack?
Yet the scorners call us slackers,
And the scorners are intelligent men.
Unsatisfied, we experiment with hopes to standards

Are these the marks of slackers?
Yet the scornful do call us slack,
And they are intelligent men. \

Teachers have gladly shared their knowledge.
Slackness should be made of stingier stuff.
You all have met at some time a teacher to admire.

Yet they call us slack, and surely
They are intelligent men.

But here I am to write what you all know.
You all have loved some teacher once, admired
Him and envied with a cause.

Methods critics
uninformed
says teacher to-be
by LOIS SMITH
Education. II
Recently much criticism has
been fired at the methods courses taken by the second-year Elementary students. Much of it
may be valid, but those who
criticize are usually the uninformed or misinformed as to the
purpose of the. Faculty. It is not
merely to arm future teachers
with a briefcase full of "tricks
of the trade"—gimmicks, ideas
and methods. The real objective
is to provide an understanding
of the learner and the learning
situation, and an insight into
the problems of class management. This aim is best achieved
through actual experience and
experimentaion, in our methods
courses and in our practice
teaching.
As the four year Elementary
program now stands, however,
all the practical courses are
crammed into the second year.
An improvement which should
result in more effective curriculum distribution is the recommendation of the Chant Commission to have a minimum of three
years training for an Elementary Basic certificate.
, Five years ago, when the College of Education moved to the
University, it was given a difficult task. It was ordered to keep
Canada's fastest growing province supplied with teachers.
'Crash' programs were adopted
to fill the demand oh the premise that a partially trained teacher was better than one with no
training at all. Now, as the demand is decreasing these emergency measures are being discarded, and a more thorough and
far-reaching training program
will be possible.
The objective of "A degree
for every Teacher" is recognized and sought after by the B.C.
Teachers Federation as well as
the College of, Edjjie&tion. As
soon as l/totem <n&mtoiBi-,'teaching,
will be near to being truly "pro-,
fessjonal".
The College of Education has
once again proved itself the
most broad-minded and progressive faculty on campus. Our .roving reporters, Jones and Smith,
took a census of public opinion
among the various faculties on
ways of improving the College
of Education. The following
suggestions weremade:
• There should be more train
ing for primary teachers
because children in the beginning grades must have
a   good  foundation.
— Lynne  Oldham,
Nursing I
• Refresher courses, especially for science teachers at
the secondary level, should
be made compulsory.
— Jessica Angle,
Agric.  I
• Dispose of the men, then
integrate Ed. U.S. . with
E.U.S.
— Neil Standen,
Eng. Ill
• Individual students should
carry out research in educational fields to supplement booklearning.
— B. Kaeffer,
Arts IV
• Standardize the length of
the course to cut down the
variety of certification levels.
— Sandra Hymas,
Nursing I
• Have more courses learning what to teach, less
learning how to teach. All
teachers should have degrees.
— Myron MacDonald,
Eng I
• Those   guys    don't    know
nothing. We're the only
faculty on campus that
pulls any weight.
— Ito Carz,
Faculty of B. & G. XIII
• Make first year Education
harder by eliminating the
choice between Fine Arts
or Music and Math or a language.
— Charlie Boylan,
Arts I
• No improvement is really
necessary. The present system seems to be satisfactory.
— Bill Sharp,
_ Pre-Med III
• Eliminate I.B.M. tests, because Education students
can pass some courses by
straight guess work.
— Art Klassen,
—Arts  II
• Make courses less time -consuming, but more challenging and stimulating.
— Evelyn   Schleusser,
Music I
• The Education Faculty
should develop better spirit within itself and should
improve its inter-faculty.
relations. It needs a public relations committee to
further understanding of
its activities by the student body and the general
public.

WCSTC recommends
more academic subjects
The. Western.Canada Student
Teachers Conference was held
this year in Saskatoon, Sask.,
January 24 to 28. Representing
the University of British Columbia College of Education were
Carol Scarlett, Kathy Hobson,
Barbara Fudge, Bob Evans and
Bev Campbell.
WCSTC provides a means
for student teachers to pool
ideas and present their views on
the profession which they will
enter. Present methods of improvement of teacher training,
means of meeting a child's
needs, and the question of
streaming were examined
during   this   year's   convention
and certain conclusions were
reached. The delegates recommended a higher ratio of academic subjects in relation to
professional courses also the addition of a professional year to
the present teacher training program. It was also suggested
that all teachers with two years
professional training be recognized as equally competent in
the Western Provinces. It was
the Western Provinces. It was
also decided that greater emphasis be placed on the needs of
the handicapped child, physical
training and school guidance.
The conference also favoured
streaming since the present system of advancement is based
upon the average child and is
therefore   deemed   inadequate.

The Report concludes that
"such activities require a high

rule, the university graduate is

Dave Edgar to go on
NFCUS Soviet tour
OTTAWA (CUP)—Dave Edgar, President of the Alma
Mater Society, will be one of six Canadian students to visit
the Soviet Union for one month.
The tour is sponsored by the! '
National   Federation   of   Cana- j grad, Kiev, one city in the Cau-
..    _.   j    .      „ + j casus, one in Central Asia (pos-

pC a reciprocal exchange between Soviet and Canadian students. "
Others included in the visit
will be Dianne Lloyd, Saskatchewan; Stuart Smith, McGill;
Jules Belanger, Montreal; Frank
Griffiths, Columbia University;
and Bruce Rawson, NFCUS
president.
Griffiths a former University of Toronto student who is
studying Russian at Columbia
will act as interpretor.
The Canadians will visit students in five or six university
-cities in four republics. Cities to
be visited are:  Moscow, Lenin-

I shot an aTrow into the air,
It  fell  to  earth  I  know  not
where.
Also included in the program
will be visits to factories, collective farms, nurseries and
other points of interest.
Earlier this year four Soviet
students toured Canadian universities. This is a return visit
of an exchange which has been
negotiated over the last few
years. A national -selection
board chose the six from 25 applications sent in by NFCUS
member universities.
The trans-Atlantic portion of
the journey is paid for by Canadian universities, and the trip
in the Soviet Union is paid for
by the Soviet Student's Council. The cost of taking the Soviets Serb* Cabala and -ot flying
the Canadians across the' Atlantic is paid for by a levy on member universities.   , j.

OAC statues found
McMaster trophy lost
HAMILTON (CUP)—March 3.
Three statues stolen from OAC
turned up at McMaster today,
but a McMaster trophy has disappeared.
The three statues—two bulls
and a man—turned up on a piano yesterday. They were taken
from OAC last fall, and McMas
ter students were blamed. Earlier this week, the Jacques Bureau trophy was taken from the
offices of the Mac student paper The Silhouette. It is emblematic of the highest standard
in student journalism for papers publishing less than twice
weekly. The trophy was given
by the Canadian University
Press in 1949. t
After the theft of the statues
officials and OAC and Mac
agreed to keep the act a secret
until they had completed their
own investigation. Editors of
both campus papers were asked
to keep the story under wraps.
In the past OAC and Mac have
had well-published feuds ranging from theft and painting
of buildings to kidnapping and
head shavings.
Two weeks ago OAC implied
that McMaster's bed was stolen
during the bed pushing craze
in retaliation for the theft,
allegedly by Mclvlasier. Last
week the charge was repeated
in the OAC paper The Ontar-
ion. Mac students believe that
the theft of the trophy is linked
with the statues. It is rumored
that it may have been sent to
Hong  Kong.
