HAPPY FROSH QUEEN . . . Silvia Margaret Tremaine
smiles prettily as UBC President Dr. Norman MacKenzie
places the crown of victory on her head. Crowning ceremonies took place at Saturday night's Frosh Reception
held in the Armories. Silvia, a lively 18-year-old who hails
from Magee high school was chosen as reigning Frosh
monarch over nine other contestants.

M Reception Saturday
Nearly 1200 students at the Frosh Reception dance saw
UBC's Frosh Queen for 1959 crowned by President N. A. M.
■MacKenzie Saturday night on the stage of the armories building.
Pretty Sylvia Tren/aine, 18,
was chosen Queen from the nine
contenders nominated by the
Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
Sylvia, a former Magee high
school student lives at 6785 Hudson and is enrolled in first year
arts. She felt "very thrilled" as
she stepped forward from the
tliree finalists to receive the

AMS Grants Sought

Possibility that Engineering Undergraduate society  may

In Big Blaze
In a "blaze of glory," the first
of   the  U»C  "shacktown"   huts
j was retired by the Varsity Outdoor  Club  as   hundreds  of  students watched Friday night.
Funeral    pyre    became    the

up in smoke and flames as more
than   300   VOC   members   and

slim majority over Tom Anthony.

Turn out at the polls was very
poor. Out of a possible 1130

right when he advocated in his
platform that the Frosh need

Singing Men

Varsity Revue still needs a
dozen singers of the male variety.
With rehearsals already underway, the directors of the big
campus show have announced
that casting is almost complete
with the exception of about 12
male singers — and one football
The fact that the Revue is on
the prowl for a football team
shows that everybody is getting
into the act. The husky grid
squad is needed for one number
in the show and with our Thunderbirds busy winning games
and practicing every day it is
impossible for them to fill any
social engagements such as an

their first victory since Or'obpr

shouted:  "This  is only the firs'

A Small Price
On Friday of this week students will vote
on the proposed $2 fee increase and will
decide if they wish to remain in the category
of a small-time university or if they wish
to maintain a student program worthy of
the third largest university in Canada.
The treasurer of the Alma Mater Society
has already stated that unless a fee increase is
approved practically all extra-curricular
activities will be curtailed in three years.
The forced adoption of an austerity budget
this year is an indication that the promised
curtailment may come sooner than the estimated three years.
By approving the fee increase students
can give larger grants to the four organizations hit hardest by the smaller budget:
Literary and Scientific Executive, Undergraduate Societies, Women's Athletic Directorate and the Publications Board.
LSE, perennial rivals of MAD in the
struggle for recognition on the budget, were
losers in the battle last year. If the fee increase is passed LSE can be satisfied and
a source of campus friction can be removed.
The Undergraduate Societies, who represent every student on the campus, will receive a permanent grant if the referendum is
A larger grant to WAD would prevent
repetition of a policy which forced individual
members of some women's teams to pay their
own way on trips representing UBC.
The Ubyssey, once published five days a
week, has been relegated to the position of
a weekly newssheet with editions on Tuesday
and Friday. The same amount of advertising
space which went into three editions last term
is now crowded into the two remaining editions. The result has been seen—a four-page
paper with approximately one and one-half
pages of advertising.
The sum of $2 seems a small price to pay
to restore our activities program to normal.
Paging Dr. Kinsey
The dominant topic of the present century
appears to be sex. The problems of dating,
love, sexual relations, marriage and divorce
are openly discussed in lecture rooms and
bunkhouses, and read about in comic books
and school books.
Everywhere people are questioning or defending our cultural norms. Sex is the topic
of the day, as religion was of earlier days.
Religion, a major part of our cultural inheritance, is no longer a single institution requiring conformity. Rather, it has diverged
to a group of institutional forms, one or none
of which an individual may choose or be environmentally determined to. And tbe binding force that makes the resultant culture
stronger and more rational in its diversity, is
freedom and toleration.
In our society, with its diverging forms,
freedom and toleration are essential to the
welfare and happiness of its differing individuals. When that principle is more widely
recognized as applicable to human relations
pivotting on sex, we will have a more mature,
less frustrating cultural environment.
As rational beings it is time we considered
the Tightness or wrongness of our actions by
a rational consideration of the particular situations and the probabilities of the results.
This rather than judging by the measure
of conformity to fixed unquestioned stand
ards. Too long have we accepted standards
which are neither universal nor infallible.
That these standards are now being seriously
questioned is evident from the frequency of
the topic. The inevitable result is a variety
of answers. '       *
Anthropologists report many strange marriage and mating customs in different cultures. Probably all, with a conceit equalled
by our own, possess the "right" customs.
In our own culture, conformity carries
with it unnecessary inhibitions and numerous
frustrations. Divergence from the conventional norm brings censure, disgrace, guilt complexes, or ruined lives. With little Christian
forgiveness and no recognition of the maxim,
"Judge not ..." we disgrace and degrade
unmarried mothers, sometimes driving thein
to prostitution.
The rigid divorce laws, part of the narrowness of our culture, often drive people lo
further breaches of the fixed code, to frustration, or neuroses. Or force open accusations
which turn private quarrels or obscenities
into public gossip.
If we wish to prove our claims of rationality we should question the formerly unquestioned standards by which we judge our
actions, we should have the toleration to
allow others freedom where it does not infringe on our own rights.
We're Disillusioned
Those of us who still stubbornly cling tj
the old rah-rah college idea were bitterly disillusioned Saturday afternoon in the stadium.
Our beloved and much belabored Birds had
just won their first football game in what
seemed like three dozen light-years.
The crowd went wild, the team went wild,
everyone went home happy—but where did
the goalposts go? The horrible truth is that
they went nowhere, they remained standing.
This terrible omission of a post-game ritual
was, in our minds, tragic. If we won our share
of games it would be permissible to occasionally leave the sticks stuck in the mud. But
when UBC emerges triumphant from the
gladiatorial grid arena, neither hell nor high
spectators should keep those goalposts up.
We feel that the cost of new goalposts
doesn't enter into the picture when we're
dealing with our old friend, Student Lethargy-
Thunderbirds have a good chance of winning next Saturday. Let's see that this accident doesn't happen again.
Coffee And Coke
Call For Help
As you approach your University career, it is important
that you realize what you want
to get out of University. We
feel that one of the main and
probably the most lasting
things that we can pass along
to you is the Correct Procedure for the Collegiate Handshake.
Cynics may say, and rightly,
what value is the Collegiate
Handshake? We answer, the
Collegiate Handshake will carry you through life. While
mere facts, and the ability to
think, may decrease with time,
the Collegiate Handshake will
brand you as a man of distinction to all with whom you
come in contact.
While Dialectic Materialism,
Psychological Hedonism or the
proper way to approach Mid-
digital Hair may get you your
degree, the Collegiate Handshake will lead you up the
ladder of life.
The first step in the perfection of this ability is, of course, '
a right hand, four sturdy fingers and a thumb. Never underestimate the power of a
complete set of digits.
After this discussion of the
apparatus we proceed in a true
scientific style to the method.
This right hand must always
be in a position where it can j
be raised to "shake-level" (a!
scientific term with which you
will become more familiar).
We suggest seeing a western
movie in which'the star carries
his hand in a position which
facilitates the withdrawal of
the six-shooter. This position
is similar to the one you must
take to be really effective.
It may look awkward at
first but remember that the
end justifies the means. Now
during an Introduction, flex
the fingers slightly tp get them
warm. It is best to take a
wide stance with the weight
on the balls of the feet. When
the intermediary says "Osiah,
I want you to meet Archie
Featheringhaw," you galvanize into action.
The right hand shoots up to
the shake-level, fingers slightly spread, thumb cocked.
Grasp Featheringhaw's right
apendage with thumb and four
digits and exert pressure. (This
is known to scientists as "Getting a grasp of the situation"),
Concurrently with the grasping goes a vigorous shaking
motion somewhat similar to
that of a Mix-Master. Unless
Featheringhaw has gone to
University, this handshake
will leave him gasping. Random thoughts such as "Who in
the hell is this bird?" and others will race through his nonplussed mind.
This is the type of handshake that has many uses:—
Meeting your girl's old man,
meeting a prospective fraternity brother, or just greeting
the credit manager of the Hudson's Bay Company.
We suggest that you practice
this before a mirror at home,
in classes and at various of the
functions with adorn this
campus. Never confuse the
Collegiate Handshake with
other imitations such as The
Wet Fish Handshake, The Lingering Handshake, The Erogenous Handshake or the Old
Fraternity Brother Handshake.
Judging by prices, the cafeterias operated
by the University Food Services are slowly
becoming the most exclusive eateries in town.
Not only has coffee gone up to a dime a
cup. It seems that we are to bo graciously
allowed to keep our pop bottles for a mere
consideration of three cents.
Last year soft drinks sold for seven cents.
Three cents more were collected as deposit
on the bottles.
A bottle of Coca-Cola costs five cents
wholesale. This left Ihe cafeteria with a 40
per cent markup in addition to bottles which
were collected from tables, deposits unre-
deemed. ^    ,kl
Now, however, the deposit system has
been thrown out. Instead the food services
have decided to sell the bottles for three
cents at a fitly per cent profit. Furthermore,
if you cannot be bothered to take the bottle
off the campus, throw it in the sea or destroy
it in some manner beyond redemption, the
food service will pick up another two cents
for a profit of five cents on one bottle of
plain ordinary carbonated synthetically
flavored water.
The case of coffee is just as remarkable.
The cost of a cup of coffee including cream
and sugar is about four cents. Of course, all
of these figures do not include labor, capital
amortization and other items of cost.

The NFCUS Committee holds
regular meetings on Wednesdays of each week at 3.30 in
the Board Room of the Brock.
We would welcome any students who are interested in
working on the activities of
the Committee to these meetings.
Briefly these activities are
campaigning for a system of
National Scholarships, arranging fifty Canadian Interregional student exchanges between
UBC and Eastern Universities,
an academic survey on the
UBC campus this year, spon-
soring speakers on the carrfpus
who have a message of wide
interest or who would not
otherwise be heard at UBC
and working for lower student
costs in such matters as text
books, rail and other forms of
transportation and other activities that the Committee may
adopt as a result of the National Convention or at the direction of the Students* Council.
We hope that as many as
possible will avail themselves
of the opportunity to work
with us and that we will see
you at our next meeting.

A five-day week for its workers has forced the Brock,
Snack Bar and the Bus Stop caf to close on Saturday
Recent union negotiations have given the Snack Bar
and Bus Stop staff a 40-hour week.
Operators of both establishments have found that it
was unprofitabe to stay open even on Saturdays when
football games were held.
The main caf will still be open as will -the Faculty
dining room. *
Once   again  all  of B.C.  is
depending on the students of
UBC.    -Once  more  they   are
asked to give their blood.
October 5 opens the annual
Blood Drive on the campus.
Apart from fhe one day clinic
being held downtown next
week the UBC clinic is the
only one being held in B.C.
next week. This means they
must have at least the 1,500
pints pledged by our University. All transfusion services
in the province are dependent
on us for next week.
There is no reason why any
healthy  student   should    not
give one small pint of blood.
Yes, even if you consume the
average seven cups of coffee
per day your blood is still
acceptable. And this is the
simplest and most rewarding
part of blood  collection.
It is up   to   you.   Human
lives depend on your answer.

Tracey said that nine clubs
serving over 250 third and
fourth year engineers are forced
to- solicit funds from members,
the fees ranging from 4 to $12.
Allan Goldsmith, AMS treasurer, has told the group that a
budget amendment would have
to be submitted at Thursday's
general meeting in the Armouries.
"Goldsmith has told us he can
find the funds for us if the increase is passed," said Tracey.
"He said he can give us the
grant without diverting funds
from special events or undergraduate societies."
EUS apparently announced its
approval of the fee increase at
Monday's Undergraduate Society
meeting when engineer repre-
rentative Grant Hepburn seconded a motion of support.
"I don't know whether the
student decision on an EUS request for more money will influence the way engineers vote
for the increase," Tracey said.

Saturday's game (it was really no contest) also should give
Varsity football filberts something to cheer about, regardless
of the score.
Later in the Evergreen Conference meet, Harris left the

he ran a record mile. In the same

Carried off the field on the
shoulders of his dog-tired but
dancing team, Coryell told the
players in the dressing room that
"this is just the start of a successful season. This won't be our
only win if you fellows play as
well and fight as hard as you
did out there loday."
The defeat was an embarrassing one for The'Stuke. He saw
Thunderbirds decisively whip
what is supposed to be the backbone of next year's Vancouver
Lions, the coast entry into the
pro football snakepit.
Cubs scored first when Vic
Chapman, one of the finest
kickers in Canadian football,
footed a single to the deadline
for one point. With Gordy Flemons doing the sleight-of-hand
in the quarterback slot and Bill
Stuart and Jack Hutchinson
handling the running, Birds
fought back and brought the
crowd to its feet with a fake-
kick play, a variation of a call
which stunned Montreal fans in
the McGill game.,
the UBC 10 but a 15-yard holding penalty against Cubs got
'Birds out of trouble.
In the second half under
American rules Chapman's kicking was less of a factor. Another
break set up the second UBC
through and blocked a Chapman
kick on the Cubs 12 on the last
play of the third quarter.
Flemons tried Stuart twice at
the line and got nowhere. Jim
Boulding bulled his way down
to the one. The"n Flemons called
on the over-worked Hutchinson.
The squat little halfback made
no mistake as he dove over the
line. Fieldgate was rushed and
tried to run out the convert but
was brought down.
Score: IM. Coryell: Relieved.
Stukus: looking rapidly through
