CHARIOT RACE between Aggies and Engineers  will   be   featured   qt  today's   Teacup   Game.

Homewreckers, Pan-handlers
Clash In Tea Cup Foot&alt
By SUSANNE CLARKE
Women are usually dainty,
feminine little things.
Today in Varsity Stadium at
12:3J0, however, thirty of them
will turn into screaming, pushing maniacs as they tackle each
ether in the annual Teacup
ifobtball game^
Opposing teams will be the
Home Ec "Home-wreckers" and
Nursing "Pan-Handlers." Both
are confident of victory.
Nurses won last year 6-0, so
referee Frank Gnup will probably have a hard time ke.eping
back vengeful Home Ec girls.
CHARIOT  RACE
.Half-time will see the usual
chariot race between the Aggies
and Engineers. Engineers are
reportedly protecting their vehicle by keeping it closely hidden before the race.
"We have tried to keep the
race clean, but I guess we didn't
have much luck," Engineering
Promotion Chairman Paul Dickie said.
BOAT RACE
A "boat race" will then be
held between the Engineers and
Pubsters. (A boat race has to do
with the amount of beer a contestant can drink. Surprising as
it sounds, the Pubsters have
been known to win.)
Also at half-time four hundred
cross-country running enthusiasts will start out on the intramural race.
Oh—and there'll be cheerleaders, too. plans call for six male
and six female fanatics to help
push their team ©n to victory.
One more thing: "I think you
ean count on _pgood stunt frOm
the engineers," promised Dickie.
Sponsored by the Engineering
Undergraduate Society, proceeds
from the whole affair will go to
the Crippled Children's Hospital
Fund.
A spokesman for the EUS said
the amount of the collection
would depend on the weather,
but a total of about $600 or $70fl
is expected. Engineers will canvass the campus between 9:30
and 10:30. Thursday and take a
silver collection during the
! game.
■ Last year a crippled child
from the hospital was brought
to the university, given a red
sweater and named "Engineer
for a Day." This will not be repeated this year because of the
cold weather.
Miss Mary _. Hdlder of t h e
Home Ec faculty will kick off
and Nursing's Miss Elizabeth
Walton will present the cup to
the winning team.
Coaches include football experts Charlie Mendelman, Mike
Williams, and Tony Tuttis for
Nursing, and Ray Covers, Mike
Hughes, and Gordy Matson for
Home Ec.
Both CHAN-TV and CBC are
expected to nave television cameras here to cover part of the
game.
China Trade Figures

The work was done by third

about a week before the fire.
Lionel Thomas, assistant pro-
lessor iri the School of Architecture, and James Needham,
fourth year student and president of the Architectural Undergraduate Society, made the
presentation.
Thomas, with the help of his
wife, is the artist who designed
the mural that now adorns the
south outside wall of the Brock
extension.
Ernest Broome,
MP for Vancouver South, was
at UBC to speak at a Conservative Club meeting.
He said the inaccuracy of the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics
figures was pointed out to him
by the Hong Kong Trade Commissioner at the 49th Inter-Parliamentary Conference in Tokyo,
which he attended in early October.
Broome said the DBS figures
were in error because they failed to take into account the
many exports from Canada
which are shipped first to European and other ports before going to Red China.
"These are not recorded as
exports to Red China, but as
exports to the country to which
they are first sent," he said.
Exports for Red China are
often routed to other* countries
because many shipping lines
serving Canada do not operate
direct lines to important Chinese
ports, he, said.
Broome stated that in his
opinion, wheat, pulp, synthetic
fibres, chemicals and rubber,
constitute the mapor discrepancies in the DBS figures.
CANADA BECOMES MEMBER
This is the first year Canada
has attended the Inter-Parliamentary Conference as a member.
Canada attended the 47th Conference, in Rio de Janiero, to
decide if it warranted Canada
becoming a member, Broome
said.
"There was great pressure
from the U.S., United Kingdom,
and other-Western powers to
have us join,'* said Broome.
The Western powers wanted
Canada to join to strengthen the
Western position against t h e
Soviet bloc.
"The Western countries' representatives go as individuals
and speak their own minds,"
said Broome, "But you can tell
the Soviet countries are prepar
ed in a conference beforehand."
Broome said the .Japanese
government turned over its
complete parliament buildings-
for this year's conference and
spent more-than one million yen
on arrangements.
More than 50 countries took
part in the Conference and
nearly all African countries
were represented, said Broome.
On the riots in Japan, he said
he was told that Western newspapers greatly overplayed the
situation. "Things weren't at all
good," he said, "but they
weren't as bad as we were
told."

!n Armory
Food Services opened the Armoury to bag lunch munchers
Tuesday.
In an effort to allay a lack of
eating facilities for students
bringing lunches, the Armoury
has been transformed into an
Armoury with tables.
Approximately 100 students
are availing themselves of this
new service daily. The Armoury
can accommodate 690 people in
three shifts, but so far the students have either not heard of
this new eating center, or else
they just prefer to scoff elsewhere.
WARM   FOR   WINTER
It is the opinion of Miss
Neime, head dietician of the
Auditorium Cafeteria, that people, will begin to flock in once
they have become used to the
new arrangement. She also emphasized that in the winter, it
will provide a warm place for
lunch hour.
To this will be added the attraction of noon hour entertain-

A Modest Proposal
, Apathy, they cry. All is apathy.
Athletes claim that no one is attending athletic events.
Clubs bitch because not enough people come out to their
events.
': But is this the result of apathy? At the recent Leader
ship Conference, AMS past-president Peter Meekison ar-
<   gued that there is no apathy. He stated that there are about
7,000 students participating in various activities on campus.
Even allowing for duplication in membership, this means
i -that there are about 5,000 active students. This would seem
to indicate that UBC students are not apathetic,
j It appears,-then, that we must look elsewhere for the
;   explanation of the poor attendance at athletic events and
•   club functions. Let us ldbk at the following two assertions,
made by the groups in question:
In other Canadian universities, attendance at football
games is far  superior to  the  attendance at UBC games,
>   say the athletes.
Clubs can often be Heard proudly stating that UBC has
more clubs than most other campuses.
This leads to a simple conclusion. Since students are
offered fewer and less diversified activities on these other
campuses, they are therefore far more disposed to take
an active interest in the limited activities offered. Hence
greater attendance at football games and other general
:   university events.
But this does not provide a solution to the problem at
UBC. Club executives on this campus have shown a singular unwillingness to merge similar clubs, or to work in
any other way to lessen the number of clubs and activities.
They argue that our free wheeling system of development
is superior to any restricted system for organization of
clubs. (This despite the fact that many clubs creep along
at a very low level of activity and usefulness.)'
At any rate, the set-up is not likely to change, so we
must deal with the problem of non-attendance within our
own framework. '     '
The athletes lay the blame for lack of support on several doorsteps. They accuse The Ubyssey of not giving
enough pre-game publicity. They charge the Booster Club
with failure to attract crowds. They blame the "academic
types" for just not coming.
They neglect to point out that perhaps a better publicity system within the athletic department might help. It
is obvious that more plain, old-fashioned co-operation would
improve the publicity situation.
The clubs charge The Ubyssey with gross misjudg-
ment when their item is cut in favor of a news story, • or
another item. Other than that, they merely cry apathy.
We would like to make a few suggestions. We feel that
the fault is not apathy so much as a sort of provincialism.
Students go on, week after week, attending to their own
activities, in their own narrow little sphere, never getting
out to support the representatives of their university in the
larger field of inter-varsity competition.
It is time we all put our individual club or activity
into the back seat for a short time each week, to support
the representatives of our university, whether these representatives  are    athletes, debaters,  or whatever.
Go to a major athletic event, or an inter-varsity de-
'    bate. Who knows, you might even enjoy yourself.

Letters to the Editor
Allen Chastised
Editor,
The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
On Tuesday I read with
much consternation that one
of your writers it against 8:30
lectures and would want us
against them too. In other
words he says he is against
small classes and variety of
courses, which are only possible if more time is found.
Therefore I ask the readers of
The Ubyssey to pay no attention to his silly, useless and
unwanted   ramblings.
Yours   respectfully,
Doug Sheffield,
Arts and  Sicences, I.
Greek Clique?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir,
Surely Jabberwocky Allen
doesn't suggest we all become
Greeks????
,   Yours fraternally,

No Quorum
s
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Bravo, Derek Allen, for advocating so enthusiastically,
the "Athenian Democracy" on
the campus. I sincerely admire
you for your idealism. Why not
do away with the "bureauoc-
racy" of the present system of
student government? Why not
govern clubs, societies, undergraduate societies, finances, the
various committees, and the
other AMS organs by weekly
general meetings?
Well, I'll tell' you why we
can't. We wouldn't even get
a quorum of 1 % out for them.
And if it is merely a representative assembly that you are
driving at, let me tell you this.
I am all for a representative
student assembly, which would
not merely be an informative
and administrative body, as
USAC is now, but have the
actual legistlative authority.
I assure you, I am all for it.
But let's'do it step by step.
Let's not completely do away
with the present system, and
establish an entirely different
one, without first having done
some careful experimentation.
Yours sincerely,
Peter Penz,
USAC Arts rep.
Library Lively
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
I fail to understand why the
library maintains a semi-transparent glass partition between
the old earrells and i" the new
amphitheatre. For there is a
marvellous program of sound
and spectacle takes place daily
with acts which could command a season contract with
Ed Sullivan. At most any hour
one an witness the empty crate
crunch, the metallic-shelf
heave, the long distance chair
scrape, the thundering book-
truck roll, and brief but best,
the shattering crash. I am especially fascinated toy the stage
hands, whose quips and curses
and shouted commands in no
way detract from the overall
production, but rather lend it
an air of complete pandemonium which is really exhilir-
ating. . .
Why a free, exciting, continuous performance such as this
does hot attract more student
spectators I cannot understand.
Perhaps if the library were
to move the whole performance
elsewhere, say to the Brock
Lounge, it would be better ap-
preicated. Especially by those
with earrells.
Yours,
Art Hughes,
Arts IV.
Dean Gage Praised
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear .Sir,
What makes UBC a great
university, a living thing with
a personality of its own, and
not merely a conglomeration
of greystone buildings on a
point of land overlooking the
Gulf of Georgia?
It is not the history or the
tradition (which we lamentably lack), nor is it the incomparable view from the
campus, of which we have a
surfeit. It is not the ivy-covered
walls; neither is it the cyclotron.
The one factor that makes
a university more than an in
stitution is the people it contains—students and faculty.
And of the faculty I commend
to you one man who has with
incredible modesty contributed
an incalculable amount to the
university he serves. That man
is Walter H. Gage, Dean of
Men.
The Dean is on first-name
basis with more students of
UBC than possibly any other
faculty member past or present.
His extraordinary memory
coupled with his genuine interest in students in all faculties
is the sole reason for this fact.
In his position as Dean of
Men he has dispensed innumerable scholarships and bursaries. But I wonder how many
"down and out" students have
received personal cheques from
his own personal account without . benefit of promissory
notes. 'Without question, there
are many.
I, as a former recipient of
such assistance, feel the need
to write you, Mr. Editor, in the
hope you will print this fact.
It seems to me to be the worst
sort of injustice to fail to give
him the credit he deserves.
Political  expediency on the
part of the administration may
deprive   the   Dean   of   proper
recognition.   I only   hope you,
Mr. Editor, and the students of
UBC are cognizant of what he
has done for the university by
devoting  his  life to   it.
Yours sincerely,
Kenneth L. Burke,
B.A. LLB.  (UBC  1958).
Thought Banished
Editor.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
The die is cast, the game is
over. The last refuge of
thought, per se, for the under- ,
"graduate has been destroyed.
For the philosophy department
has chosen the bright shining
path traversed by the sciences.
The study of philosophy is now
a study of the history of philosophic thinking. Thought is obviously irrelevent to the perusal of patterns and so is consequently frowned upon. With
this final banishment of
thought from the university
"God" may now rest in peace
and our training be complete.

THE    UB¥SS£¥
£qge-'$
FIVE-THIRTY CiUB
By IAN BROWN
That repercussions over Saturday's football game have not
yet died down was evident from Council's preoccupation with
discipline Monday night.
The first item to be discussed at any length—as a warming-
up exercise, so to speak-—was the Case of the Broken Bricks.
Damages arising out of the Engineer's attempt to wall off
Brock Hall a few weeks back came to just over $30—$20 for
transporting the bricks back to their original location, and
$10.56 for breakage caused when someone thoughtfully pushed
the wall over.
The Discipline Committee decided that Engineers should
pay the transportation cost. Monday night it reccommended to
Council that the bill for broken bricks be paid by the person
who was alleged to have instigated the action leading to the
damage. DC Chairman John Goodwin, explained that, though
the amount was small, it was thought necessary to establish a
precedent; that the instigator of a prank is not necessarily
responsible for all results arising from that prank.
Goodwin said that this person had not actually pushed the
bricks himself, but had suggested to a group of persons unkown
that they do so. As he declined to name the pushers, it was
felt best to bill him.
He could then, if he wished, take up a collection from the
others.
Several Councillors felt the Committee was on shaky
ground in making this decision, and it was pointed out that
it was this student's testimony, not his money, which was
wanted, so that the persons actually responsible for the damage
could be billed. It was suggested that he be put under oath
and asked to name those involved; if he refused to do so, he
could be brought before Student Court and disciplined.
Russ Brink said he would like to see a more definitely
worded recommendation, stating that the Engineers were not
being held responsible because the damage was done by a
wilful act of persons not connected with them. In effect, he
said, there weret two pranks; one started by the Engineers,
the other by someone else.
The matter was referred back to the Discipline Committee
for revision.
Getting to the subject of the football game, Council didn't
quite know what to do, but agreed they should do something.
Mark Daniels pointed outv that Administration appears to be
concerned over the "excessive drinking," and if they move first
they may take away some student autonomy. Russ Robinson
also said that someone might easily have been killed or severely
injured by the car careening round the field.
Several Councillors felt that MAC should be urged to
introduce more stringent methods of control, as they were responsible for staging the game. However, Don Robertson reported that this had already been decided on, and the RCMP
will be asked to attend the next game.
Which left Council back where it started—eager but
uncertain— As President Edgar said, it was neccessary to see
"something stronger than the usual 'we express distress. . .'"
("we usually say we 'deplore' things'.'). Doubts were raised as
to whether there was much Council could do, and the whole
system of students discipline came in for a certain amount of
criticism.
Shortage of time prevented a decision being reached on this
question, and it was passed to the Discipline Committee.
This column wishes to apologize to Players' Club, and
especially to Mr. Bill Gordon, for an incorrect and misleading
item about them which appeared in this space last week. In
defence, let us state that this story was written as it was
. reported in Council. It is an example of the supreme naivete
of this reporter that he believes everything he hears at a Council'
meeting.
Get Tough Mr. Edgar!

On Saturday's Homecoming
game, the EUS Newsletter has
this to say:
I think most of you saw
yesterday's Ubyssey which covered the football fiasco. My
sentiments (those of the editor)
could be expressed no clearer
than what was expressed by
the editor, Fred Fletcher. How
did the Engineers ever get
misnamed "Boors" when there
are people around such as
those who were at the football
game Saturday? How do some
bigotted people even dare to
criticize our activites when
they or their select bunch of
friends revert ,to prehistoric
revelry? I hope their ill-man
nerisms   are not indicative   of
their intelligence  .   .  .
The sad part of it all is that
our AMS president does not
condemn their activities. His
statement in The Ubyssey was:
"Homecoming is traditionally
a place for both students and
graduates to let off steam . . .
Everyone is making too much
of it all." I hope that he was
expressing his own personal
opinion, and not that of the
Alma Mater Society. Why Mr.
Edgar? Are you defending your
friends? Mr. Edgar was lucky
enought to get his position by
acclamation, and therefore he
does not need to think of the
popular vote. Or does he???
By GARRY NIXON
When one gets done reading
the reply of Mr. Morris of Cinema 16 to my review of Le Sang-
d'une Poete, one gets the
feeling that somewhere along
the way there is a rather large
question that has been begged.
As I predicted Mr. Morris
presumed that there was something the matter with me rather than the movie as the reason for its being incomprehensible, and after a first reading
of Mr. Morris' well-written reply one might be inclined to
agree with him. But, as I say,
there is this vague feeling of
uneasiness" that causes a reader
to look at the reply again and
wonder.
For instance, Mr. Morris'
statement, "It is no use simply
saying: 'surrealism is bosh'; it
is an art movement which has
tremendous influence on our
generation," one asks himself
but what if surrealism is bosh.
Just because-it is an art movement that has had tremendous
influence in this century does
not mean it is not -bosh, in fact
this might be evidence .enough
for saying quite the opposite.
I attacked the film for being
incoherent and incomprehensible. To me, no more damning
criticism of a work of art can
be made. It is the business of an
artist to communicate. If he cannot do so he should close up
shop.
It is significant that every
artist that has stood the test of
time has worked within these
"limitations" of coherency and
comprehensibility. (Lest someone give out with the example
of Hamlet's motivations as a
contradiction of this let him
ask himself if this is the reason
he considers Hamlet a great
play.) It would not matter if M..
Cocteau was the finest cinema-
tographer in the world (which
he is not) before he can attempt
"to create poetry in visual
terms" he must be coherent and
comprehensible.
When Mr. Morris says that
Le Sang d'une. Poete is import-
of one of the most controversial
ant for a proper understanding
artists of our generation he is
equating (as are the surrealists)
art with psychiatry. It is not
the artist we are concerned
about—it is his art (if any!!)J
The critic is not mainly concerned with whether a thing is
experimental. He is concerned
with whether it is good. An artist can be judged on no other
criteria.
So, Mr. Morris, it would appear that to dismiss this film as
incomprehensible and lacking
meaning is not to demonstrate
my woeful lack of understanding of poetry (for comprehensibility and meaningfulness are
essential to poetry); or the poet's
mind (for that has nothing to do
with his art); or even one of the
most influential are movements
of the present century (for it
may well not be worthy or even
capable of understanding).
If the reader is interested in a
slightly more balanced and
definitely more sympathetic
view of this movie he might be
well advised to read Mr. Sinclair's review in tomorrow's
Critics' I*age.
A week ago, UBC became the second university to receive a copy of the First Fplip. the first collected version of
Shakespeare's works, printed in 1623. The edition, along
with several later editions, is on permanent loan from the
Folger Shakespeare, Library in Washington, D.C.
Upon request. Dr. G. V. P. Akrigg, who worked on a,
research fellowship at the Folger Library, has written the,
following article pointing out the significance of the First
Folip.
The real importance of the First Folio of 1623 is not that
it is the first collected edition of Shakespeare's plays but
that it is our only source for about half of the thirty-six plays
which it contains. Shakespeare was not concerned to have
his plays printed during his lifetime. Once he had written
them, in fact, they passed out of his possession and into that
of the company of actors to which he belonged.
During Shakespeare's lifetime, the members of this company (The Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as The
King's Men) were not eager to see his plays in print. Apparently they feared that other companies might steal them, or
that their public, once they could buy Shakespeare's plays*,
would no longer need to come to their playhouse and see-
them acted: Some of the plays published before 1623 wer»,
marketed by "pirates," unauthorized printers who had secured;
imperfect versions of the plays. (The 1602 edition of Thp
Merry Wives o# Windsor pr.obably rests on nothing morel
substantial than the memory of the player of one of the minor
roles who had sold his reconstructed, version to the printer
a few shillings.)
*       *        * ._,.--.'-
A few years after Shakespeare's dgath in 1618, The
King's Men changed their minds and decided to co-operate
with a printer in publishing in one volume the best and fullest versions they could provide of Shakespeare's plays. Accordingly, two of, Sb^fcesj>ear~'s former associates, John Hem-
inge and Henry Condell, worked with the printer Isaac
Jaggard in bringing out the large folio volume of over 9W
pages entitled Ml. William Shakespeare's Comedies, Histories,
and Tragedies.
In the book's dedication they declared that their motive
was "Only to keen the memory of so worthy a friend, and,
fellow alive, as was our Shakespeare." In short, Shakespeare's
friends were aware of the greatness of his achievement, and
published the First Folk) in order to preserve it for succeeding generations. Had they not done so, we would probably
today be without Macbeth, Tbe Tempest, Julius Caesar, and
the rest of his plays. English 200 students at UBC would not
have Antony and Cleopatra.
'# * *
Probably afenult l.OflO copies of the First Folio came fr«m .
Jaggard's press. Of these, 240 copies survive today, some in
very battered condition. As books go this is hardly a rare
item. Its absolutely central place in Shakespeare scholarship
has, however, made the First Folio one of the most sought
after of all books.
Copies hardly ever come on the market these days. Most
are in the libraries of institutions which would have to face,
bankruptcy before they would dream of selling their copies.
A  First   Folio   in   good   condition   would   bring   well   over
$100,000 today.
The Shakespeare Folios recently displayed in the Library
have been put there on permanent loan by the Folger Shake-,
speare Library of Washington, D.C. The Folger Shakespeare
Library is the creation of a rather remarkable person, Henry
Clay Folger, a former president of the Standard Oil Company
of New York. t
Buying anonymously through various dealers, Mr. Folger
received a stream of rare books from across the Atlantic.
Scholars working in the Elizabethan field gradually discovered that more and more rare items were disappearing from.
view, acquired by a mysterious "miser of books" in America.
Before he died, Mr. Folger had in storage over two
thousand packing-cases full of books, manuscripts and engravings. He had acquired 79 copies of the First Folio, 58
copies of the Second Folio, 24 copies of the Third Folio, and
36 copies of the Fourth Folio.
In the end, Mr. Folger showed himself much more than
a "miser of books." In Washington, close to the Library of
Congress, he built and richly endowed the beautiful Folger
Shakespeare Library, where the treasures he had collected
became the nucleus of what is today one of the world's great
centres for the study of the English Renaissance. By a cruel
irony, Folger died two weeks after the cornerstone of his
library was laid in 1930.
*        *        *
Through the years the First Folios have lain, row after
row,  in the vaults  of the  Folger  Library.  Because of the
seventeenth century practice of correcting copy during printing, no two copies of the First Folio are identical. Using a
most ingenious mechanical contrivance, a former Folger research fellow, Dr. Hinman, has collated all these copies of
the First Folio in an attempt to arrive at the best possible
master text. This work has only recently been completed.
Forbidden by their founder's regulation from selling or
otherwise alienating any of the Folios, Dr. Louis B. Wright,
Director of the Library, and the Trustees of Amherst Col-   '•
lege who are its board of governors, have had the happy,
thought  of  placing  sets  on  permanent   loan  in   important
libraries in various parts of the world. The first library sp to
be honoured is that of St. Andrews University in Scotland.   I
The second is that of the University of British Columbia.

DUTCH MIME ARTIST
GIVES DUTCH TREAT
Today UBC is in for a Dutch
treat.
Mr. Frans Reynders, Dutch-
born exponent of the ancient,
subtle and graceful art of panto mime, is appearing this noon
in the auditorium. He has re-
icrrtly been touring the U.S.,
\ i siting American cities and uni-
\ orsities.
To many critics he is the most
talented mime on the American
teene today.
During the war, when only
in his teens, he became a member of the Dutch underground,
rfe has since been a house painter, art instructor and owner of
a  marionette  theatre.
After 1945, he became interested in pantomime and began
to study the art. Following his
studies at the Amsterdam Academy of Art, Mr. Reynders went
to Paris  where he enrolled  in

Students Cheating
Reports Dalhousie
HALIFAX (CUP)—Students have been hiring counterparts in advance mathematics and engineering to write their
Math I spring examinations, reliable sources told the Dalhousie
Gazette.
The sources outlined the procedure as follows:
The student approaches an advanced student in engineering,
and offers a sum. of money in
return for exchanging identities
during the examination.
The advanced student is instructed to write for a mark between 60 and 70% which allows
a safe margin for uncalculated
errors and at the same time does
not arouse the professor's suspicions because of too great an
improvement over Xmas exams.
Since the" Math" I class has
several sections, the writer is
relatively free from  discovery.
The sources also told the Gazette the average fee demanded
for the exam-writing service is
$35.
Most students who made use
of  the   scheme   were  repeaters

Students Jailed
At McGill Rally
MONTREAL (CUP)—At least 20 persons, including several McGill students, spent more than three hours in jail as
the result of a McGill pep rally that grew unruly.
The rally, which started on
McGill campus with a good
turn-out, soon overflowed onto
the streets as 500 marched on
the railroad station to greet the
incoming Toronto   team.
Traffic stalled in all directions, and the crowd, which had
swelled to 1,500, converged on
Windsor station to welcome
still   more   Toronto   supporters.
In a battle to keep traffic
moving and to restrain the students, police moved in more
than 25 cars, assortd motorcy-
cl units, as well as men on foot.
Both McGill and Toronto students were among the 12 people
detained at the police station
many in a high state of intoxication.
They were charged with disturbing the peace, drinking in a
public place, "throwing beer bottles on private property and interrupting  traffic.
Police held them from 10 p.m.
until 1:15 a.m. when they were
released by order of Ass't. Chief
Inspector Rochon.
Although not held for trial,
the students were reprimanded
severely  before released.

MADER SPEAKS ON USAC
New
Editor's Note:—Mr. Mader,
Chairman of the Committee
on Student Government Revisions has written the following story regarding progress
in student government with
respect to the recommendations contained in the Has-
kin's Commission brief. This
is the first article in a series
collected by the Features Department on "The State of
Student   Government."
By STAN MADER
Student government at UBC
is in need of a change!
This is the cry, as evidenced
by popular opinion and the number of gov't, investigation committees set up. in recent years,
that has rung up and down the
channels of UBC student gov't,
for some time.
This year, for the first time
in the past five years, an attempt is being made to institute
the recommendations of a committee that has given thought
to the problems facing the student body with respect to their
student government. ■
Our Students' Council has decided to institute the recommendations of the 1959-60 Haskin's
Commission.
Whiy is it felt that a change
in student gov't, is needed and
upon what considerations was
the Haskin's report handed
down? To answer these and
other pertinent 'questions, the
following synopsis has been prepared.
Student autonomy is only as
strong as student gov't. To
maintain our present level of
autonomy we must maintain a
commensurate level of strong
and effective student gov't.
MAIN PROBLEMS
The present practical problems
facing us with respect to our
student gov't, are  these:
1. Recent failures or near failures of AMS general meet-
ings.
2. Student apathy toward student government and student
affairs.
3. The increasing number of acclamations in student council
elections.
4. Lack   of   knowledge   by  the
students in the function and
mechanics of student gov't.
It   is   generally  agreed,   that
the present general form of
gov't, is effective tout that some
changes must be made to alleviate the above mentioned problems. Many forms of student
gov't, were considered by Revision Committees of the past
with diverse opinion as to the
proper form to ibe accepted.
OBJECTIVES
It was generally agreed, however, that the following objectives should be striven for, no
matter what form is finally
adopted.
i. The maintainence of students' council as a policy
making body.
2. The dissemination of the most
possible information regarding student activities to the
most  possible students.
3. The fullest possible participation by the "student body in
student    government     as    a j
training   ground   for   future
campus  leaders.
With the above problems and
Objectives in imind the Haskin's
commission suggested the following changes in our student
government.
1. An alteration of the composition of U.SC by adding to
that organization, in addition
to   those  faculties  now  sitting:
Two representatives from
each of: Graduate Studies,
Clubs, Fort Camp (one
male, one female),, Acadia
Camp (one M, one;F) and
one representative from
each of the Men's Residences, NFCUS and WUSC
combined. IFC, and Pan
Hell. Except for the fraternities and sororities,
. who would have no vote,
these representative groups
.would each have one Vote.
The Publications Board
would also have one nonvoting representative. A
weighted vote is provided
for   where  requested.
2. An alteration of the powers
of USC oy placing clubs,
food services, and housing under their jurisdiction subject
to controls by Student Council
to be decided upon. This alteration would not. take effect until these functions
were formally removed from
Council-control by constitutional revision.
3. The appointment by Council
of an "Activities Chairman"
to sit on USC and to be responsible for the efficient
functioning     of    Leadership
:, Conference, Frosh Orientation, High School Conference, Academic Symposium,
Frosh Retreat, and Student
Executive Program, and to inform USC of the progress of
these   committees.   The   Ac-
ent Assembly
tivities Chairman   would  re- provide   the   basis   of   a   more
port to Students' Council
through the Executive Member as to the progress of these
committees, either body reserving the right to a personal report from the respective chairmen. Students'
Council would reserve the
right to consider and vary
any decisions passed by USC
with respect to these Committees that did not receive
a two-thirds assent from USC
by the method of voting used.
The Activities Chairman
would report to USC, on the
advice of the Co-ordinator, of
events taking place on the
campus for two weeks subsequent to each USC meeting.
4. The publication each week
of a newsletter „ containing
news of events brought to the
attention of USC, to be announced to the respective organizations by at least posting the newsletter on a conspicuous notice board in the
proximty of each of the
member organizations.
5. One week power of delay by
USC on anything passed by
less than a two-thirds vote
of  Students'   Council.
COUNCILLORS  REMOVED
The adoption of these recommendations would result in the
eventual removal from Students'
Council of the UCC and Second
Member positions.
USC would, except for the
changes instituted, remain the
same but would be renamed for
purposes of distinction. This renaming would result in the new
body called the USAC (University Students Activities Committee) or such other name as
the body decides to adopt.
GOVERNMENT EFFECTIVE
These changes, it is felt, would

workable and effective student
government. It is the intention
of the committee working on
the institution of these proposals to effect these changes and
such others that are suggested
and considered prudent and in
the interest of an improved system of student government.
ASSEMBLY CREATED
The general effect of the
changes proposed would be the
creation of a body, USAC, that
would be as representative as
possible of student opinion on
the campus. With the/'proposed
increase in power and funcition
USAC would be in effect a secondary power in student government, next to students' council.
USA©-would be, It is hoped,
the body through which the students at our university could become more familiar with the
workings of student government. It would also provide the
students, with an assembly
through which individual feelings and opinion could be expressed.
The opportunity to express individual opinion would be more
accessible through the representatives of the member bodies
of USAC than would be possible
merely through a student councillor to student's council.
FUNCTION OF USAC
It must be understood that the
final makeup and function of
USAC is far from settled. Any
changes now proposed are merely suggestions; the ultimate
form of USAC to be settled by
recommendation, trial and error.
The eventual position of USAC in student government could
be that of a power just slightly
below that of students' council.
Its   representative   nature
could be enhanced by the inclus-
s i o n of additional interest
groups.
WORKABLE GOV'T
It could be the basis of a more
workable and efficient student
government resulting in the solution of the immediate problems facing the students with
respect to their student government and the desired preservation of our student autonomy.
With the above mentioned
principles, objectives and recommendations in mind, it is the
hope of the Committee on Student Government, of Students'
Council, of interested bodies and
individuals, and we hope of all
the students that with your help
and support some concrete solution to our problems regarding
student government can be ar.
rived at.

Canada Needs
CCF to Grow
Says Regier
Canada does not know where
she is going, stated CCF MP
Erhart Regier at a CCF meeting
Monday.
"Because we have no long-
range plans," Regier claimed,
"uncertainty and insecurity affect even the leaders of our country, and this is furthered as we
watch unemployment rise and
prosperity decline."
Canada is being further and
. further politically and economically dominated by the United
States, he stated, and pointed
©ut that U.S. capitalists are not
necessarily interested in the
welfare of the Candaian people.
"Canada's economy is not expanding," he said, "and 'we are
not answering the demands made
by the»growth of automation.''
"The situation is made more
serious because this general
slow-down is occurring at a time
when other countries are striding
forward under more advanced
economies," Regier observed.
"The Liberal, Conservative
and Social Credit parties have
done very little to solve any of
these problems."
Outlining the steps a CCF
government would take to restore full employment and national independence, Regier
called for a planned economy
"snd concerted action, with the
best brains in the country working for the government and definite moves to make Canada an
exporter instead of an importer
of  capital.
Canada would then be able to
use her natural resources for the j
betterment of herself and of the
underdeveloped countries of the
world, he said.

the area.
The  botanists,  on  the  advice
of the B.C. Provincial Museum,
Led by fourth year Arts' stu-  wil1  make  a general  collection

will study the botany and geol
ogy of an area which has been
visited very rarely due to its
extreme difficulty of access and
the mountainous terrain.
RESEARCH TEAM
Lack of previous coverage of
this area by scientists will give
the expedition the value of
working in an untouched area.
The team will consist of two
geologists, two botanists, one
entomologist and one experienced  mountaineer.

ISLAND   GEOGRAPHY
This has never been done in
Golden Hinde and will be the.
basis for any further and more
detailed  studies of its botany.
Due to its geography Vancouver Island has an exceptional
range of plant life and life-zones
are found in very close proximity to each other.
The scientific program of the
expedition is such that every
member of the party must have
experience in heavy bush work
and some experience in mountain

metallic compounds. We have developed refining
techniques to reduce total metallic impurities
to less than one part in a million and spectroscopic analytical procedures to detect one part
in ten million.
The field of application of high purity metals,
not only in semi-conductor compounds and
electronics, but also in many other applications,
offers interesting opportunities for research.
This and many other fields comprise Cominco _
