No. 44
Two members of the Ubyssey
editorial board Thursday had
their AMS privileges suspended
for the remainder of the university term.
Suspended for "conduct unbecoming a UBC student" are
former editor in chief, David
Robertson and former city editor,  Kerry Feltham.
Chief Justice of the student
court Ben Trevino announced
the decision.
The pair were suspended for
a prank involving the removal
of a painting from Brock Hall.
Trevino said it was "unfortunate" that the pair might have
■been suspected of theft by the
general public. It was a prank,
he said.
"But it.was ill conceived and
blunderingly executed."
Trevino   delivered   the   court
judgement which stated:
"The Court would like to
make it completely clear that
we have found no intent on
the part of the accused to keep
the painting, typewriter and
speaker. The court regrets that
any connotation of theft was
ever, at any time, imputed to
Mr. Robertson and Mr. Feltham.
The Court, therefore, will
recommend to the Students'
Council the suspension of Mr.
Robertson and Mr. Feltham
from all privileges accruing to
them by virtue of their membership in the Alma Mater Society,
such suspension to begin if and
when this recommendation is
ratified by Students' Council,
and to continue for the remainder of the current academic session.
"The Court makes this recommendation because of the
following facts. The judgement
finding the accused guilty of
conduct unbecoming a student
was based on grounds:
• Their demonstrated irresponsibility.
• Their   disregard   for   the
interests of other students.
"Because of their irresponsibility, the Court wishes to insure that neither of the two will
hold or be a nominee for a responsible  position.
"Because of their violation of
the rights of other students in
the whole conception and execution of the prank, the Court
is obliged to suspend all Alma
Mater Society privileges.
"The Court also decides that
there is no constitutional ground
for witholding the honoraria
granted to these two students
by By-law 19 of the Alma Mater
Society Constitution."
Gordon Armstrong, in a minority judgement held that the
punishment of expulsion from
the AMS should only be used
when a student exhibits more of
the mental element of culpability.
Students' Council will meet
in an emergency session today
at noon to rule on the Court's
Not A Word
Is Spoken
Administration officials and governors alike were keeping
silent about the budget and possible fee increase until the
Board of Governors meets Monday night.
Not even Minister of Education Peterson's statement that
fees needn't go up could evoke comment yesterday.
Chancellor A. E. Dal Grauer, I — r- "
KENNETH PATCHIN, poet, gave a reading to all students
who could cram into Buchanan 106, Thursday. He was
forced out of Auditorium by "The Battle of the River
Plate."   However, he was not beaten, nor beat.
Large Audience Digs
Patchen's Poetry
Poet Kenneth Patchen read poetry with jazz Thursday
noon to an audience of 300 in Bu. 106.
All seats were taken and students stood down the aisles
and at the back of the room.
AMS Presents
Brief Monday
Students'Council will present
a brief to the Board of Governors Monday night, as the next
step in its fight against the proposed fee increase.
AMS president Chuck Connaghan, president-elect Peter
Meekison and treasurer John
Helliwell plan to attend the
Board's meeting and present the
students' brief which is expected
to urge that the Board show
more leadership in the face of
recent budget developments,
and the almost certain fee increase.
The brief will also put forward
the Council's recommendations
for alleviating the increase.
Council PRO Bill Ballentine
declined to comment further,
but said that full information
would be forthcoming Tuesday.
Student Court postponed
hearing of charges against the
Engineering Faculty because
prosecution witnesses didn't
show up at its session yesterday.
The charges arise out of an
Engineers' raid on The Ubyssey office in which several
phones were alleged to have
been pulled off walls.
Patchen's deep voice sounded
through the room blending with
the music but never lost in it.
His poems, strings of striking
but often seemingly unrelated
phrases, conveyed a strong intellectual and emotional dissatisfaction with life today.
Now and then his theme
seemed one of complete dispair
of accepting apathy as the only
reasonable attitude toward Lie.
Lines such as the following
expressed this feeling:
"A few dozen people were
killing  time,   and  getting tight
Because nothing meant anything any more."
More often his poetry sug;
gested that there is meaning in
life somewhere, although we
may not know how to find it.
These lines suggest some kind
of hope:
"It is not too late to go home,
Oh fall in now,
Love, only love is community."
Patchen read five poems
Thursday which he had never
read in public before. It was
difficult if not impossible to
gather any meaning from some
sections of these. The audience
laughted now and then while
he read them, but clapped enthusiastically at the end.
One of these poems began
with the words: "The lantern
eater's daughter went to a party
dressed as the telephone number of an elm tree."
In an interview after the
reading Patchen stated that he
was not a representative of the
"beat generation."
chairman of the Board of Governors, said he would not comment until the Board made its
Mr. Peterson had said in his
address to the Legislature last
Friday that the government had
"fulfilled its responsibilities" to
the University and that fees
need not go up.
He had added that fees might
go up nevertheless; this had
been forecast by the university,
and there had not been an increase since 1951, he said.
Members of the Board of Governors contacted by The Ubyssey last night would not comment on Peterson's statement.
Silence also reigned in the
ranks of university officials.
President N. A. M. MacKenzie
had nothing to say.
Nor had Dean Geoffrey
Andrew, assistant to the president, or Prof. Geoff Davies, administrative assistant.
Prof. A. W. Carrothers, president of the faculty Association,
had no comment to make.
Dr. Neville Scarfe, Dean of
Education, who had protested
against the budget when it
came down, had no comment on
Peterson's statement.
AMS President Chuck Connaghan, after hearing Peterson's
statement in the legislature last
weekend said he was astounded
by it.

More Than
Food At Inn
The College Inn, latest addition to campus restaurant facilities, will offer more than good
food, according to student proprietors.
The new restaurant, to be
opened Saturday, is the result
of efforts of three student-
businessmen to "lighten the
atmosphere in the campus village with an outlet for quiet
entertainment  and good food."
Original plans called for live
acts to be brought to the campus for dinner and evening entertainment while the customers
were served from cafeteria-type
facilities .j However, the complaints of local residents prevents entertainment to the extent that the lease now provides
that not even a piano can tinkle
in the background.
The owners have found a way
to prevent a complete absence
of music.
Starting Monday you can eat
while listening to jazz via the
latest  stereo-phonic  equipment.

UBC — It's Geography.
I had a dream and believe
me she really was a dream.
She came up to me in her
three-piece red bikini and' said:
"You know who I am, big boy?"
"Yes," I breathed, "the three
of hearts!"
"No," she said, "I'm a good
fairy . . ."
"It takes all types"
". . . and I'm supposed to show
you the Geography of the campus: forms, sizes, shapes."
"Lead me to 'em!"
"Over there is the Buchanan

known as Buch. as in: I've just
had three cups of caf coffee and
now I'm going to Buch."
"That's fine. But I Would
rather discuss Human Geography. Come here doll. Let me
kiss your neck, your shoulders.
Let me nibble on . . •"
"No! No!"
"... your ears."
.'  "Listen,     sonny    boy,"     she
snarled,   "you   can't  have your
cheese cake and eat me too!"
"But I'm hungry for knowledge."
"Well over there is the Library.    It's large.    It can handle
most of the overflow from the
"Yeah. Say, isn't that too
bad about those beaches."
You know, don't talk like a
good fairy.
"Actually, big boy, I'm a
ghost- I'm transparent. If you
look closely you can see right
through me."
"Good, the ghost is clear! Are
there any more ghosts at home
like you?"
"Yes, lots. All good ghosts
except Matilda — she's the one
black sheet of the family."
Just then I was awakened by
the booming voice of my Geography professor. "What," he
demanded, "are you doing?"
"Nodding, sir.. ..."
And I was saved by the bell.

Committee   Set   Up   To
Aid   The   Unaided
The results of an extensive
study into the economic situation of destitute families in
Greater Vancouver indicated
that many needy families are
not receiving even minimal support during the present unemployment crises.
The study indicated three
main groups of needy families:
those already on social assistance, but whose assistance the
study revealed to be 30-50%
inadequate; those families who
are not eligible for social assistance, yet whose position, because of insufficient income, is
desperate; lastly, there is a vast
number of families, eligible for
social assistance, who, while
waiting for their • cases to foe
considered are going without
essential food and basic necessities.
An Emergency Social Assistance Committee has been set up
to collect funds to help combat
this situation, and an appeal
will be made to the student body
late in March to support this
charity drive.

the CBC's national network said
"The contents of the program

general and not only to students." Mr. Hallman also said
the CBC entertained doubts
about the quality of material

about the percentage of students
who would actually listen to
such a program.

His counsel explained, however, that there were extenuating circumstances which should

Christiansen explained that
as tee CCF party was informed
of the election date only two
or three days in advance, it
was too late to cancel Mrs. McGuiness' speech.
The trial was then adjourned
as there was some disagreement
over the nature of the sentence
and the constitutional rules governing such cases.

Friday. February 20,  1959
Wanted: Anger
This is an examination of what appear to us to be
the basic things underlying the current state of affairs,
namely the skimpy budget and the humiliating silence by
administration and governors that has followed it. It is a
pessimistic view.
We think Bennett's going to get away with it.
Bennett's concern is to stay in power. This he can
do by getting the majority of votes cast each election
time in the province.   That is how our system works.
To simplify things, let us suppose that the proposition
is, that roads are more important than universities. Bennett
probably believes this. The budget appropriations doubtless
reflect his judgement of their respective values.
But the black part of the picture is this: that obviously,
the majority  of voters believe  as  Bennett  does.
That is how he stays in power.
We may now look at the university's situation as
not simply that of being oppressed by the government,
but of being caught, sandwiched between the government
on one side and the majority of voters on the others.
The majority of voters feel that roads are more important than universities. The majority of voters also feel
that roads are more important than Cabinet members
taking bribes, as the Rossland-Trail election Socred victory showed.
This is not to suggest that the voters will never
change their views. It is to be hoped that they will move
towards what we at UBC are vain enough to think of
as the more enlightened view, that universities are more
important than roads.
Another dark omen though: Money spent on universities breeds more people who appreciate universities and
will in turn vote to spend more money oh universities;
money spent on roads that should have been spent on
universities breeds people who favour roads over universities. There is a momentum effect attached to whichever
direction the  government moves.
A required action springs clearly into view at this
point; that the university should attempt to direct, to
educate the non-university public.
And here we encounter the old problem of how the
intellectual can have any force in getting things done in
society that he wants done. He is badly equipped to
manipulate crowds, shall we say. Bennett is better at it.
Thus, one finds the complete dissociation from politics
on the part of many intellectuals.
What is to be done then?
Well, we can open our mouths and let some angry
words come out.
Not pessimistic, black, defeatist words like these, but
angry ones like Ben Trevino's and the ones that will, we
pray, come from the Board of Governors.
Personally, we, like^ Doctor Rieux in Camus' "The
Plague" attempt to derive strength from the very futility,
yes, absurdity of our position.
We don't care where the administration and Board
of Governors gets it (The Plague is a long detailed book)
but we do wish they could or would speak.

Board Of Governors
Should Break Silence
Past President, AMS
Let's . make no mistake about it, the
Board of Governors is charged with an
enormous responsibility. It is they who must
plan and dictate the University's financial
policy. In the context of a mushrooming
enrollment, a perennially-meagre budget, and
pressures from the student body, faculty,
government, and public, their responsibility
grows more complex and more awesome
every day.
They are faced with several traditions.
Higher education has never been a vote-
getter, and this is reflected in the history
of grants to the University.
The Board has never played politics
with the University. The individual political
convictions of the Board members have never
come into play when negotiating government
grants for the University, and the government in power at any one time allowed the
members of the Board those convictions and
respected them.
The Board's negotiations with governments have always been private. The public
was never made aware of what the Board
hoped for in the way of grants each year.
The University has always sought to
offer the best education available at the
lowest cost to the student. The University
has been rewarded with an intensely loyal
student body alive to the financial and academic problems the University faces, and
sincerely concerned with both mattters.
It is time to examine those traditions,
to ask ourselves how many remain intact.
We submit that the University is becoming a vote-getter, and that this is the
reason the government is at least paying
lip-service to the proposition that no individual desiring an education, and capable of
benefitting from it, should be denied that
education for lack of funds. As the province
has grown more industrially and socially sophisticated, more and more people are realizing the importance of education, and further are realizing that building roads and
retiring debts at the expense of the University is a luxurv no province and no country
can now afford.
We also believe, though we have little
proof, that one of the reasons the University
is continually short-changed by this government is because of the political vindictiveness
of the individual who heads it. We suspect
that to Premier Bennett aid to the University
is aid to the enemy, since few Social Credit
votes are found in the University community,
among students, staff, and Board alike. We
suspect that the Board feels, rightly or
wrongly, that  anything said that may  em-
barass the government in the slightest will
be taken out on the University's budget the
next time they must go to the government
with their hats in their hands and their responsibility weighing heavy on their shoulders. This government does not respect political freedom, and you either conform — or
appear to conform while suffering in silence
—or accept token offerings. Smiling all the
while, of course.
Traditions, which have meaning only
until they are broken anyway, have been
broken. The Board, we are sure, will continue striving to keep fees to a minimum. The
student body, we hope, will remain loyal to
the University.
But this is by way of notice to the Board
members that no one can demand of them
this continuous erosion of their individuality
and their self - respect. The disgusting spectacle of the Minister of Education taunting
the Board, apparently secure in his knowledge that no answer will be forthcoming, is
too high a price to pay, and too high a price
for anyone to demand. It is reminiscent of a
small boy pulling the wings off flies.
We therefore implore the Board to clarify to to the public   (and this doesn't mean
political   mud-slinging)   the   following   ques- ■
tions   raised,   directly   or   indirectly, by the
Minister of Education:
1. Can the University maintain the quality
of education now offered at UBC with
an increase of $650,000 in its operating
grant? Without a fee increase?
2. What is the status of any revenue surplus
on the University's books, where did it
come from, and how is it committed?
3. Why were two separate budgets forwarded to Victoria, and at whose request?
These other questions, though not raised

NFCUS  Plan  Provides Chance
To Study  In  Other  Provinces
With deadlines impending
(February 28) on applications
for NFCUS exchange scholarships,. I would like to remind
and encourage interested students of this opportunity to
study on another campus,
thereby to learn about another
community something more
than can be absorbed through
history books and hearsay. Our
country boasting such a wealth
of cultural and physical variation, we should certainly aim
at learning everything possible
about it before aspiring to further travel, abroad or elsewhere.
With full respect for holiday
travel, I maintain that getting
to know a place involves considerably more than merely
driving through with perhaps a
sight-seeing tour designed to
uncover the "wonders" of the
place. Holidaying, I could have
seen" the fog of this city on
any occasion; I could likewise
have received an erroneous
impression of the merits of this
city, as a result. I have, instead, grown to appreciate the
meaning of fog for drivers,
sportsmen, and bookworms,
alike*: and   to -appreciate   the
. sun ■ almost with"; the : exuberance of a psychotic rising'froni
. a depressive to-a manic state.
_ Even more important: than
such physical phenomena are
- the people -who live here, and
their ideas, both. combining
with the former to make this
region distinct. In planning my
exchange, I surmised mentally
numerous other regions of
Canada, each attractive in
some specific aspects. Regardless of its relative closeness to
my home University, and consequent advice against it, I
finally chose B.C., finding
quite soon that its closeness to
Alberta makes it no less different, in many ways, than would
have been the Maritimes or
any other part of Canada. Indeed,  to  me  the  citizens here
seem more like the Americans
and British, than Albertans.
Most B.C. residents display a
guiltless pride—even a sense
of superiority —■ because they
have the mountains, the sea,
and "summer" throughout wintertime. Not only do they appreciate, but they take advantage of their natural endowments of beauty. They also experience their problems, of
course, and at this campus, at
least, these aren't passively"
ignored. The current fee campaign, for example, in fervor
and student awareness, is
something which I have not yet
In leaving my home university, I have experienced another intangible benefit —• a
sense of independence. While
living at home provides innumerable, benefits and conveniences, this very provision
can prove surprisingly efficient in stunting the development of one's sense of responsibility.
If anything has been brought
to this campus by way of an
exchange of ideas by us exchange scholars, our purpose
in coming has -been partly fulfilled. In addition^ we have all
gained, in this same exchange,
something which we should
not deny sharing with our
fellow students, upon returning to our respective campi. As
such an exchange is undoubtedly a potential benefit to the
communities, especially t h e
university ones, involved, as
well as to the individual students, the plan should be encouraged and expanded and
The former, my exhortation
has attempted to begin; the latter, your local NFCUS committee is attempting for the
whole of Canada; neither can
be effectively achieved without the alert support of all
of us as students and NFCUS
The Symposium
There is an ironic timeliness about the Academic
Symposium this weekend.
Away to Parksville go a hundred faculty and students
to exchange thousands of words about "The Role of the
University in the Community."
Here on campus it is hard to forget this weekend
how this very topic has been so clearly and unmistakably dealt with by the  Social Credit government.
It will perhaps not be easy to keep the financial
relations between University and Provincial Government
off  the  agenda  and out  of people's  minds  at  Parksville.
In fact, these relations as they now exist lend something of a tone of irony to any discussion of the University's role in the community.
For what can it do without money? Faculty and students can and doubtless will, after much careful and
earnest discussion arrive at certain ideals as to the part
a university should play. But it begins to look more and
more as though any ideals arrived at an Academic Symposium, at least any that cost money to implement, will
remain ideals as long as Mr. Bennett's government retains
We imagine that many of the faculty particularly
will be bursting to talk this weekend, after what must
have been, for most of them, an enforced silence since
the bud get-came down..
The interregional scholarship pays tuition fees at another university in Canada (not
all Canadian universities participate in the plan) for a student's penultimate year in almost any non-restrictive course
of study. Application forms
may be obtained at the Registrar's office, and must be
handed in to him, completed,
by February 28. For anyone
wishing to discuss this further,
the local NFCUS office is in

UBC Thunderettes have been dealt a joker in their bid for
the Senior "A" Women's City Basketball Championships.
All season, the Thunderettes have wanted to get the Eilers
Jewellers on the UBC campus for a game on UBC home
grounds. And all season long, Eiler's coach, Gordie McDonald,
has put off such a move. Instead, UBC has had to play games
on the Eiler's home court.
Finally, UBC's coach, Marnie Summer, received an okay
from Norm Gloag, chairman of the Vancouver Basketball Commission, and Wes Rickaby, commissioner for women's basketball. UBC was to have the second game of the finals here on
campus in the Women's Gym.
The Thunderettes printed over 300 tickets and diligently
set out to sell them. Everything was set. Cheerleadering and
half-time entertainment was arranged. Team members sold
their twenty tickets each, some to home town fans as far away
as Chilliwack.
Then what happens? .McDonald decides that he did not
know about the game being at UBC, so he protests to the
Commission. He also states that the games should be played
on a neutral floor, even though the first of the series was on a
floor that the Eilers have great access.
And the Commission upheld his protest refuting the permission of the chairman.
Now what happens? UBC Thunderettes must comply to
the wishes of the Eiler's coach. The game to be held at the
Women's Gym was changed back to John Oliver. UBC did
not get a chance to compete on their own home court, a factor
that often is an advantage.
This issue at face value is not of great importance.
But ... ;
The Vancouver League features what is perhaps the best
brand of women's basketball in Canada. And the women participating are;playing for the athletic qualities. Why not keep
it that way? Why try to run it with so called "athletic politics?"
Only too often in Canadian athletics is the betterment of
the activity forgotten while haggling and complaining is carried
on by officials, administrators and coaches.
It is about time that we reverted to playing the game and
not to win at all costs — such as McDonald has done.
Or McDonald are you guided by the fact that you might
be scared? Scared that at last your dominating team in Canadian Basketball may be stopped? After all, UBC has been
the first team to beat the Eilers in some years and they did
come close to doing it again last week. Perhaps that slight
"home-court advantage" maybe just what the Thunderettes
But however he was guided, Miss Summer, here is hoping
you and your squad show the Eilers some good, hard basketball
and come out ahead. And to show the Eilers that if they were
as good as some people think they are — it wouldn't matter
where the game was played.

players, the Birds will be depending on their spares, including Bruce Allardyce, Bill Mar-

aid in sending the best team
possible to California, Coach
Albert Laithwaite has drawn up
two sides for a game from which
he will make final choice.
Last Saturday, UBC Thunderbirds were defeated 11-3 by
the Vancouver Reps, and therefore lost possession of the McKechnie Cup emblematic of
Provincial Champions. The Reps

acquisition of defenceman, Vic

AHL and Calgary of the WHL.

is composed m|ainly of rookies
with a sprinkling of veterans.
The most outstanding player
among the returnees is Les

the "Bears" with 28 minutes
spent in the penalty box.

good Intramural set-up with 20
teams participating, and with
the prospects of a Winter Sports
