McLean, and David Edgar.
Life at university is a most
interesting and stimulating experience. The next few years in
the lives of your children here at
university will have a great influence on them and thus on
you," Dr. MacKenzie said.
He stressed the three main
services a university provides
for its students.
It provides the best and most
inspiring people available as
lecturers; the best possible physical facilities and an association
with students all over the world.
Col. McLean, director of student service said, "I believe
students today are as responsible
and well prepared, and achieve
as much or more than any other
generation of students."
He described the services
available to students.
Dean Gage spoke about the
financial assistance for students
Foreign Students Note:
A number of students did not
have their temporary landing
permits renewed when immigration officials were on the campus  last week.

of Immigration will visit the

Student council president,
David Edgar, acquainted the
visitors with the extra-curricular
activities on campus.
Following the assembly, parents were taken on guided tours
of the university, and then
served a buffet lunch in Brock
West Must Help
African Countries
Rev. T.A.M. Barnett told students Friday that Western Nations must offer help but not
impose it if African countries
are to adjust successfully to independence.
Rev. Barnett, a professor at
the Anglican Theological College of B.C., who spent two
months in Africa this summer,
said African nations must be
treated as equals to Western
"If we approach them as equal
people they'll accept help as
people,"'Rev. Barnett said, "but
they don't want our charity."
There is an urgent need for
technicians, doctors and teachers and he urged development
of more exchange programs between Western and African
Rev. Barnett, who toured
Uganda, Nigeria, the Belgian
Congo  and   Sierra   Leane,   said
The United States presidential election campaign provided
a question for Liberal M.P. Hon. Jack Pickersgill when he
addressed students yesterday noon in the Auditorium.
"We   have   no   obligation   to
defend those islands, or for that
matter to defend Formosa," was
the answer to a question on the
stand of a Liberal government
in the event of an attack on the
Chinese offshore islands of
Quemoy and Matsu.
Pickersgill said that this was
the position Lester Pearson outlined to the House of Commons
before the Liberal defeat in
The   member  for   Bonavista-
Twillingsgate joked and laughed
with his audience of 350.
But Pickersgill was serious
when he talked of Liberal leader Lester Pearson: "His whole
life has been in the field of constructive work. Everything he
has said as Leader of the Opposition has been said with the
same degree of responsibility
as he had when he was in office."
Pickersgill has been closely
associated with two former Liberal Prime Ministers; he was

"But the church knows its

—A tetter—
What—me worry?
This is the typical student attitude toward charities on
campus. In the past student canvassers for the annual Red
Feather blitz have been greeted with an air of indignation or
downright refusal by students as they wend their way through
the class rooms. It is true that few of us are ever in need of Red
Feather services while we are students, but few of us realize our
our good fortune in being healthy, not in need of social welfare
services, and free of the troubles which beset so many families
in the area.
The annual Red Feather blitz on campus usually averages
out to a contribution of 10-15c per student. This means that
you, Bob Brocklounge, donate one coffee per year to all the
combined Red Feather services; you Randy Redshirt, one half
at glass of beer to. the cause.
Working men and their families are asked by the Red
Feather to donate a certain percentage of their annual income
which works out tq a donation of 20 to 35 dollars for average
income people. Students certainly on the whole are not in e
financial position to give anything near this amount, but in
light of the rather free way we spend our money in smal?
amounts it seems that the average student contribution could be
greater than 10c.
So, when the students who are giving up their classes to
canvass come around to your class on Wednesday at 10:30, make
a point of having some suitable amount of scratch on hand to
drop into the little silver can. One should reason that it is better to be giving to the Red Feather than receiving help from it.
Larry Fournier,
1960 Chairman

til everybody in the country saw
that there was a problem, then
provided a solution whereas St.
Laurent saw problems before
anybody else, and provided a
solution before the people were
aware of them.
"The result is that the electorate thought anybody could run
the country. They decided to
let anybody try."
Pickersgill gave this opinion
to St. Laurent after the 1957
election which gave the Conservative party the administration.
Pickersgill's topic was "Parties and Party Leaders", and he
traced the development of Canadian political parties. "Parliament works best when there are
two parties, and only two
"In the '30's when I was lecturing at the University of Manitoba, when times were pretty
tough and we had a Tory government—one of those co-incidences we got from time to
time—I saw the birth of the
CCF party," he said.
He said also that the CCF
party was now in a pretty confused state as it did not even
know what to call itself.
He characterized Social Cred
it as "A party that believed in a
a leader, divinely inspired, that
had a gospel of spiritualism and
easy money.
"For a long time they were
confined to a single province,
but later on— and I am using
this word in a strictly etemo-
logical sense—in a more corrupt
form, it seems' to have spilled
over into another province."
Commenting on the proposed
party resulting from the union
of the CCF and Labor, he said
that it was being formed in a
radically different manner from
any other party in Canada.
Whereas the OCF and Social
Credit parties were formed by
men with principles and ideals,
a platform inspired toy protest
against old line parties, this
new amalgamation was going to
come into being then go about
looking for platform planks.
"Some people say that politics
is a choice between evils," he
said. "I. might say in my less
sober moments that politics is
a choice between evils and liberals, but I would not expect
Unanimous agreement on that
Pickersgill also addressed the
Vancouver Institute Saturday
evening in the Buchanan Building.
Got Your Card Yet?
AMS cards must be picked
up by Friday, Oct. 28.
Only retakes will be distributed after this date. Director of Publications, Ross
Craigie, stated today that all
cards not claimed by Friday
will be dumped into the
wastepaper basket.
Library Gets
First Folio
The first collected edition of
Shakespeare's plays printed in
1623 will be presented to UBC
upon the opening of the new library wring at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
The edition, known as the
First Folio, will be on permanent loan from the Folger Shakes,
peare Library in Washington,
D.C. Three other later folios will
be presented at the same time.
Dr. Louis B. Wright, director
of the Folger Library, will present the folios during his speech
at the opening of the library
wing. Dr. Wright will receive
an honorary degree at the Fall
congregation on the same day.
UBC's librarian, Neal Harlow,
said the 1623 First Folio was
Ithe first collected edition of
Shakespeare's plays. The four
folios were described by Mr.
Harlow as "the cornerstone and
prize of any collection of English  literature".
Mr. Harlow said the Folger
Library had decided to place the
four folios on permanent loan
because of its interest in the
diffusion of humanistic learning.
The placing of the folios recognizes the importance of UBC
in Canadian higher education
and emphasizes our work in
the humanities, Mr. Harlow said. Page 2

Bring Money
Wednesday is a day when UBC gets its chance to
contribute to the revitalized Community Chest campaign.
Commercemen will be around between 10:30 and 11:30
asking you to be a good neighbour and to slip some change
into the tin.
There is no doubt that the united appeal is the best
way to raise funds for charity; and there is no doubt that
J. Gordon Gibson has picked up the pieces and put the
organization on a sound operating basis.
This is UBC's opportunity to back up the hard work
that has gone into this reorganization process with donations of hard cash.
It is our chance to prove our responsibility as citizens.
By supporting the Red' Feather drive, we show the doubters
that we are mature individuals, capable of recognizing the
course of action that is in the best interest of the community, and Capable of following that'course.
Last year, everyone found a dime to give. This year,
let's make it 3 quarter.
By boosting our total contribution over the 1959 mark
of $1,100, we can show that we are aware of the circumstances of a united charity drive.
And we can demonstrate that we are aware of our
responsibilities in the community, so that when we go to the
community with ous needs; they will recognize the value of
higher education and will be ready to-do* their bit for us.
J Isn't bureaucrary wonderful, people?
Look at the exbltjn# job it does with, the parking system on this campus.
At the outset we will concede one thing: parking regulations are necessary.
And perhaps we will also concede that violators should
be towed away.
But  consider  this- common situation on  a typically
cold and rainy day on campus.
Student X parks his car ("illegally", of course), and
the car gets towed away.
When the dastardly deed is discovered, Student X
summons the superior intelligence which gained him entrance to this institution and slogs, $5 in hand, to the Department of Building and Grounds to claim his car.
"Sorry, me lad," say the officials. "You'll have to go
to the administration, building."
But, moans X* it's raining very hard and that's another
10 minutes away.
"Rules and Regulations."
With such wisdom to guide him and such comfort to
sustain hkn, Student X now trudges to theadministration
building to pay his- fine.
He  virtually' swims  back.
And now, barring further and unforseen delays, he
will get his car back with % of an hour lost in study
Put then, what is study time compared to the upholding of rules and regulations.
Surely amongst the geniuses guiding our administration, someone would think of establishing a fine-collecting
system at the car pound.
Or maybe the guiding lights have been doing a little
too much overtime on Crime and Punishment. ™A.C.
The glare of the searchlight
fall£ this week on what would,
on the surface, seem to be a
minor, possibly even trivial
incident. The principle involved,, however is more important
The result of this incident was
a perfect illustration of a serious sickness affecting society,
that- of conservatism, depressing conformity, complicated by
ignorance, hypocrisy, deceit,
prejudice and self-importance.
The model who so kindly illustrated for all these "attributes" was the dietician in the
Brock  coffee shop.
A few days ago the public
relations officer for the Sunny
Trails Naturist Society approached the vendor responsible for cigarette machines on
campus. He wished to install
in these machines a quantity
of match folders advertising
the Sunny Trails Club. The
vendor had no objections but
stated he would first have to
obtain the permission of the
Brook dietician. Later he reported that this permission had
been refused by Brock Hall's
self-appointed advertising censor. . „, 1
-^ fij
The Sunny Trails PRO then
approached "Madame Grundy"
in person.
The following is the text of
the conversation which ensued
after the PRO had introduced
himself and explained his purpose.
Madame Grundy:—"Oh, I'm
terribly sorry, but we have
nothing to do with the cigarette machines. You'll have to
deal with the "Vancouver
Vending Co."
PRO:—"I've already spoken
with the representative of the
company. He has no objections,
but he says I need your permission."
Madame Grundy:—"Well, I
don't think it's a good idea."
PRO: —"You realize, of
course, that only the name of
the club and a slogan - appear
on the match folder? In other
words it is simply an address
to which anyone interested
could   write."
Grundy:—"Look, I don't
like the idea, and I positively
refuse to discuss it further, all
This last rebuff was given
in a most insulting tone and
carried with it the unmistakable meaning that Miss Brock
Hall did not consider Sunny
Trails representative to be
composed of the same flesh
and blood as she was.
What justification was there
for the Brock dietician's abominable lack of common courtesy? What justification for the
conceit which convinced her
she was far too wise to even
deign to diseuss any subject?
Indeed what justification is
there at any time for denying
any man the right to speak,
write about, or communicate
his own philosophy, as long as
no harm results- to others? The
answer seems obvious. The
worst and most unpardonable
sin a man can commit against
our false and sick society is to
have a new idea. To conceive
of some new idea, entirely un-
harrassed by opinion of others
is to commit oneself to a life
of ostracism.

I am most pleased and gratified to be in receipt of a
letter from F.C.R. Long which characterises me as "the
Bicyclist's friend". Mr. Long will be interested I know when
he learns that friend Dave Edgar has no bicycle. Apparently
he does not want to lead the crusade, Mr. Long. Perhaps you
might step in?
The response to my suggestion re "cycling campus" has
been received by somewhat less than overwhelming support,
Mr. Long. However I did count 22 assorted bicycles, motor
scooters and motor cycles—in various stages of disrepair—
kicking about the general afea of the Buchanan Building.
This, mark you, on. a Saturday morning!
I conclude that peddling not only assures good health, but
also bolsters the moral fibre sufficiently to enable attendance
at lectures on that day at that hour.
One of my spies reports, incidentally^ that a very attractive blond type sporting a big black German make bicycle
is seen by him every second day as he makes his bleary way
between classes. He confesses that she makes him ashamed of
his wasted, dissolute life, such a picture of vitality and bounding good health is she. His reports are not to be trusted however, as we still remember the morning last year when he
straggled into the office—extremely disreputable of attire and
looking as sottish as usual— to report a monstorous herd of
elephants that had pursued him down the mall.
Not being at our brightest, we fell for it and thundered
out to cover the biggest story to hit campus since the days
when Pierre Berton masqueraded as Frankenstein's monstor
and stalked over the Library. Even the photographer came. It
turned out that the only elephants our sudsy friend had seen
were pink, and there went our scoop.
* * *
Another thing that sticks in my craw is this absurd custom
of attending 8:30 lectures. No other university in Canada
does this!
I have given up suggesting to Dave Edgar that he begin
a crusade, but if I had not done so I would certainly put it to
him that having the 8:30 class abolished would be a splendid
accomplishment for his regime. Of course we would immediately be classified with trade unionists (heaven forbid) for
calling for shorter working hours, but this I am sure would
not deter a brave student administration from pressing for
their goal, if they could once decide upon a goal to press for.
The tragic thing about our tame AMS circus is that they
seem to be without a goal. President MacKenzie has been
justly acclaimed as a most kind andb considerate man who has
given us little ones much student.autonomy, and I for one can
vouch for this as I have never seen him down at the Ubyssey
office demanding that we withdraw unkind statements about
him, his friends, or his administration; but he has pulled a fast
one on Student Council. They do not have to fight for freedom,
they have it already. They now only have the problem of
finding something to do.
This, though it may sound like a minor matter which
would be quickly settled by an eager blue blazer group, is
quite a problem. They have $24 per year from each and every
one of us to play with, and yet anyone who has sat in on a
council meeting despairs with me over what they see. Time is
wasted to such an extent that even Ubyssey reporters, the most
tolerant of people, become coldly cynical and write sarcastic
columns. And all because Council lacks a purpose.
Well, I have one to propose. Fight for abolition of
8:30 classes. -.Tuesday, October 25, I960

The Pep Meet Story
There was a pep meet of some kind in the Engineering
Building Friday at noon.
This much we're sure of. More concrete information
becomes obscured in a maelstrom of charges and countercharges.
As far as The Ubyssey can gather, the Booster Club moved
their pep meet from the stadium to the Engineering Building
when the rains came. They did this without making any booking whatsoever. Apparently the Engineers had a blanket booking on the room.
Both sides of the story are presented below. We are also

Dear Sir,
The Booster Club can be
credited with one of the finest
s*fiows of ignorance, callousness and- incompetence as the
result of Friday's so-called pepmeet.
Mostly it was an unorganized schmozzle— as anyone
who was there can testify.
ITEM: On the day before
the pep-meet the Aggies (and
tbhe Engineers) were asked to
participate in a Chariot race.
(Ubyssey Oct 20). At least
give us a couple of days notice. The Engineers didn't even
have one made.

they are and What are they trying to prove?
Are they deliberately using
* misleading publicity (Chariot
race announcement, Ubyssey,

get higher attendance. I rather
think not. I think instead it
was mis-management and lack
of  organization.
Are they trying to get more

in the Engineering Building reserved for an Engineering
After being rained out at the
Stadium the Booster Club
moved the Pep Meet, consisting
of the cheerleaders, part of the
Pep Band and about 25 students, to Engineering 200.
An Engineering meeting had
been scheduled in this room at
that time. Had they been notified, the Engineers would not
have objected to the Booster

A certain noisy individual
among the boosters, carrying
a case of beer, began challenging the Engineers to a "boat

hydraulics tank and the beer
was disposed of.
The Engineers were also
challenged to defend the goal

challenge which was not publicized.

Vulgar Exhibitionists
The   Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
As a spectator at the football
game on Saturday, Oct. 22, in
the UBC stadium, I was disappointed to see our team lose,
but horrified to witness the
disgusting behaviour of a small
group of vulgar exhibitionists in the grandstand, and appalled to realize that these
were my fellow  students.
I had not expected to see
university students and their
"lady" friends gleefully throwing paper darts (no douibt imitating the children present)
yelling  inappropriate  phrases,
sueh  as   "To  H  with  the
Engineers, Aggies and Arts
men", whilst proudly consuming quantities of beer.
I was profoundly disturbed
at the thought of these dastardly events were being witnessed by our visitors from
Seattle. Sir, as a new member
here at UBC, must I conclude
that the university hag failed
to live up to the American's
conception of high Canadian
standards, or that these events
are merely what I can expect
as the result of the influence
of our neighbours to the south?
Yours sincerely,
Jeremy J. Tickner.

Nixon Supported
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
One cannot fail to be annused
by the continued susceptibility
of Olaf Nebocat and Raymond
Vickery to the hyperbole of
Mr. Gary Nixon. Should Nixon
err on the side of the angels,
Vickery and Nebocat err where
they fear to tread.
One can only conclude that
in  this battle of mock heroic
wit, Nixon is not vanquished.

friend) envisions a return to
the pedal, to solve the parking
It appears that the B and G
does not want any solution to
the problem, for the one and
only covered bicycle rack in
campus has been torn down.
This, located behind the Med.
huts was torn down during the

help the situation and use Buster's less by advocating a return to the pedal, to motor
scooters, and to motor bike
traffic on campus.

The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
The sight of the Sopron Faculty marching down the Main
Mall on Saturday morning
brought back to me a sharp
memory of the atrocities of
communism and made me ask
myself why we allow a Communist Club to exist on our
campus. This club should not
dictatorially be told to cease
existing as this is not in line
with our Canadian heritage of
freedom. Instead, it and its
members should be treated
with s\ich scorn and disgust by
the students that it would voluntarily  disband.

The Facts
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
In view of the recent controversy with regard to the
status of the Parliamentary
and of the Allied Integrity
Front and its constitution a
statement of fact seems* to be
At this time the Parliamentary Council has no status under the University Clubs Committee and no constitution recognized by U.C.C. or the Alma
Mater Society. The council is
a co-operative enterprise of the
present five political clubs.
These five clubs have complete
control over the constitutional
form and the administration
of the Council. The Council is
not directly financed by a
grant from U.C.C. or A.M.S.
Its moneys come from 'the accounts of the participating
clubs and are frozen into the
Council acount at the request
of these clubs.
A simple parallel will suffice to demonstrate the ridiculousness of the aim that the
passing of the A.I.F. constitution by U.C.C. and A.M.S.
forces the Council to accept
them. If the Amateur Radio
Society and the  Film Society
organized a cooperative dance
and the A.I.F. had as a constitutional aim "to seek to participate in this dance" one
could certainly not say that the
passing of the A.I.F. constitution by the U.C.C. or A.M.S.
obliges the groups holding the
dance to accept A.I.F. participation in its organization of

The letter was written by a

It charged that, within the
last two years, the government
of Mexico has increasingly restricted "democratic ways of expression", and compared the situation to the dictatorial rule of
General Porfirio Diaz.
Students, it said, are most
affected; during August of this
year, several hundreds of students had been "arrested,
savagely beaten, and even assassinated in the streets," while
manifesting   their   discontent.
Professor G.O.B. Davies, of
the Department of History introduced President MacKenzie to a
crowd of 100 attending the commemoration of the United Nations.

the importance of the workings
of the UN in the world.

Why Always
So Expensive
"But why should we have to have text-books, sir?"
I questioned Dr. Conway of U.B.C.'s History Department
and Dr. Brown of the Philosophy department.
"And if we must have them."
I continued, "why must they almost invariably be expensive
I knew that more economically priced books, which often included parts of or covered
courses, were 'being, produced—
why did'these books appear so
rarely on  our booklists?
There might be one explanation.
BRIBERY       '    ;
Bribery, in our pragmatic
age, can take place in the most
highly respectable of circles.
And despite the reverence academic gowns inspire, in the heat
. of indignation one begins to
suspect— surely not payola between teacher and publisher?
They say every man has his
"Here you are, Dr. Jones, one
set of the Encyclopedia Britan-
nica all for you if you have
your students buy our text—•"'
After all, Charles Van Dor-
en .. .
Dr. Brown was a little amused
at the suggestion of such lechery.
"The publishers are never
that blatant," he said.
"A desk copy of the book is
often offered to the teacher, and
abundant free samples are distributed after the manner of
soap and drug companies, but
I have never heard of outright
bribery on any larger scale."
Said Dr. Conway, with countenance stern   and scornful.
"Sometimes they tell me that
a certain text should be purchased as several hundred
American colleges are using it.
That book goes right in the basket," and he gestured dramatic-
aly towards that recepticle.
Both men pointed out that
professors dislike having to
choose expensive texts for the
student, but often if pocket
books were available, they were
incomplete or poorly edited.
"Many of my colleagues,"
said Dr. Brown, "feel guilty at
having to use large and costly
books in their classes, and there
is no real advantage in it for
the teacher—but too frequently
this cannot be avoided. . ."
This seemed to lead back to
my initial question. Why textbooks at all?
Surely university students
should have, or should be encouraged to develop sufficient
integrity to tackle reading and
research on their own. without
This would not only solve the
financial problem, but would
be added incentive for students
to do individual work.
Dr. Brown agreed with this.
Text-books, he felt, were not
necessary when so many original sources were available in
some smaller form or in libraries, except, perhaps, in highly
technical courses.
Dr. Conway, however, shook
his head at me more in sorrow
than in anger.
"There   are,"   he   said,   "in
every course, students who are
not there for the love of learning—they want to pass and get
out. These students need a text."
"Many students, furthermore,
would not open a book if they
did not pay good money for
texts. People tend to value and
use that which they pay for."
A sound psychological observation, I thought with a start.
But surely with alarming implications.
Are unenthusiastic students
to be encouraged in their slack
Are they to be supplied with
texts as crutches?
Surely survival of the fittest
can—and should be—a part of
university life.
I mentioned this to Dr. Conway.
"My dear," he said wearily,
"what are you going to do about
it? Libraries are often inadequate, and in our society students have to pass in university
in order to get good jobs. It is
our duty to supply students
with a text which at least covers
the course."
"But students should not have
to pay so heavily for an education. .Some help should toe given
to them."
What Dr. Conway said was
all quite true and all quite sensible.
But it does seem so tragic
that students should pay millions
of dollars each year on what is
really not a strict necessity, and
a source of concern to both student and teacher.
"5.75! BUT IT IS SUCH A SMALL BOOK." Yet  another student groans as the cost, of educa-    '■
tion takes its toll on next weekend's budget. Actually students get a fair deal at the university bookstore but it still hurts.
Do Students Get A Fair Deal?

There are few moments in

His indignation takes several
Long, loud complaints are exchanged with fellow-sufferers.
Aggrieved leters are written to
"The Ubyssey". Others suffer in
sulky silence.
Most forms of protest, however, are directed at the University Bookstore.
Few students take the time or
the trouble to actually compare
text book prices or to discuss the
problem with the bookstore's
Few consider the advantages
offered by the bookstore and do
not realize that the problem of
high textbook prices goes far
deeper than their association
with the campus bookstore.
"Students are given more

Pocket-books, incidental reading matter, and supplies are sold
at the bookstore (not a private
venture, but a branch of the
University) at regular prices.
This is impossible to avoid
without starting a ruinous price-
war with the ' many smaller
stores in the area, who would be
undersold if prices were cut.
Text-books are sold at" the
Bookstore at lower rates than at
downtown stores in most cases,
or otherwise at the same price.
The Bookstore receives the
usual 20% discount from publishing houses on books, but must
pay heavily for their transportation. Maintenance and staff
salaries must also be paid.
Profits are eaten up by these
The Bookstore., like any business enterprise today, cannot
run at a loss.
A 60% buy-back price is
offered   on   used   texts,   which
students would otherwise have
considerable trouble in selling
were it not for this service.
Unused texts are bought back
for the same price for which
they were sold.
Those who have sought to
blame part of the high cost of
text-books on the Bookstore
might well pause to consider the
real root of the problem.
Under the system of free-
enterprise, books, as any other
commodity ,are handled by publishing companies and bookstores alike, with necessarily one
motive-—that of making a profit
by charging all the consumer
will bear.

Seven talented lower mainland athletes  began  earning
their money last week with
the start of the basketball season.
These scholarship students
were chosen on the basis of
both basketball ability and all
around character. Two scholarships of $200 and five
worth $150 Were awarded by
the High School Association.
John Cook, a lanky six-four
forward from, Gladstone, and
Ron Parker, a centre with all
the* moves from Lord Byng
will provide a one-two punch
for either the Braves or Jay-
Cook and Parker were the
two winners of the $200
scholarships. Both are top students and excelled in school
activities. Cook was a consistent B student and was active on the student council.
Parker, an A science student,
was outstanding on the track
and field team and was art
editor of the school annual.
Jim Jamieson, a tall hotshot guard from King Edward, was active in all sports.
He plays baseball and soccer
in addition to basketball. In
his spare time he umpires
baseball and coaches and referees basketball. All this, he
hopes, will lead to a physical
education  degree.
Eokhardt Ferdinand!, winner of $150, is from Vancouver College where he was also
active in football and track.
Brian Adams, another member of the B.C. Champion
College Team, is a guard with
speed and good shots. In addition -to basketball, Adams .
excels in golf and badminton.
He hopes to become a teacher.
Jon Henderson from Gladstone was another $150 winner. A forward, he was president of the Gladstone student
couneil   and   was   active   in
YMCA Boystown. In addition
to basketball he played badminton, volleyball and participated  in  track.
Mike Harcourt was school
council president at Winston
Churchill, where he displayed
his basketball skills as a dependable, good shooting forward. In addition to basketball, Mike plays golf.
These seven ballplayers will
be in uniform when the three

Once upon a time, great concern arose among the football-
conscious population of the University of Lower Enthusiasm, B.C.
Their team just wasn't winning. In an effort to stimulate
victory, they fired the coach, an American import, and promoted
Melvin McGinnis, lecturer in Ancient Greek and Grasshockey, to
head football coach.
McGinnis, who had the year before led the Cricket and
Tiddlywink sides to their fifth consecutive undefeated season, was
the most successful coach in University history. He had, he said,
even surpassed the record of Anaxamander, famous track and field
coach at the University of Athens in the fifth century B.C.
That fall, the campus was bubbling with excited anticipation.
McGinnis had been holding private practices, and fans theorized
upon a new secret weapon. Ten thousand advance tickets had been
sold for the home opener against Northeast Central Washington
In an exclusive interview with the new coach the Uellee, the
University of Lower Enthusiasm student newspaper, attempted to
uncover McGinnis' secret.
"What've you got up your sleeve, Mac?" they asked.
"Are you sure you can keep a secret?" he said.
"Of course," they said. "It's the people we tell who give it
"Very well, I'll show you what I have in mind," he replied,
as he erased the blackboard.
"I have devised a potent new formation," he said.
This was a surprise to the reporters. They had expected McGinnis to stick to the more Classical formations.
"I borrowed the idea from cricket," he said. "I call it the
"With an inexperienced backfield, we could call it the green-
T formation," quipped one scribe.
"We put our two fullbacks here," he explained, "our quarterback here, tailback here, halfbacks on the right and left, and flank
two men on either side of the line: We'll murder 'em."
"But that means you have seventeen men on the field, and
that's not cricket," argued the reporters.
"Nonsense, young fellow," growled McGinnis. "That's what
football needs—a little imagination."
Unfortunately, the game was played under American rules,
and-McGinnis could only put two quarterbacks in his backfield.
The ULE boys were whalloped 56-0.
You see, just before the game, the entire first and second strings
announced they were quitting because McGinnis had signed them
all up for double honours in ancient literature, and they were too
busy for football.
The players all got their 18 units, but the football team didn't
win a game. A marble likeness of McGinnis was hung by the neck
f*om the Library entrance. Angry alumni and students replaced
McGinnis with an American import, and the next year ULE won
its customary three out of seven games.

He just dropped in for a chat. I hadn't seen
him since we were undergraduates. He
had everything then: a bright, quick mind,
drive, imagination ... big plans. He graduated with top honours in our class...
But when he talked to me, he seemed
dried up. No sparkle, no nothing—as
though that parchment was his certificate
of having learned everything there was to
be learned. I asked about his job—and
then I knew: It's steady, but it's dull.
It made me think. Perhaps I'm just
lucky, but aluminum is different. There's
no end to what you can do with it. I
haven't been with Alcan too long, but
half the things they're doing with aluminum now weren't even on the drawing
board when I started. If you'll pardon the
cliche: It's the metal of the future,
all right.
And yet, with Alcan you have the
benefits of being with a long-established
company. You know—good salary, pension plan, stock purchase plan, and so on.
It all adds up to much more than a job:
it's a career. And with aluminum, the
future isn't behind you, and it isn't Way
out front. It's right here. It's- what you
make of it—today.

Moral Issues
History doesn't tell you anymore about the end product than
Physics or Biology stated Dr.
John Conway, Assistant History
Professor, Tuesday.
With regard to theories of
history made by various historians, Dr. Conway said "They
selected facts to suit their conclusions, while ignoring others.
"When you take into account
the whole of history, you will
find that it can tell you no more
about the end product than
Biology or Physics. History gives
no more sense of morality than
does Psychology.
"We cannot tell whether it
makes sense or not until it is
finished," he said.
He compared history to an unfinished experiment. "We are
only half way through. The final
chapter has yet to be finished,"
he told the gathering.
He suggested that people
wanted to find a direction of
authority in history. "People
look at history to tell them what
to do. We must think of it as a
whole and free ourselves from
wanting an authority," Dr.
Conway said.
