More than 20 Vancouver High Schools have joined UBC's

Forestry In
- Aggies Out
It seems there was a mistake
made when Forestry students
got dunked in the lily pond
Aggies, thinking they had won
the Blood Drive, threw the seemingly anaemic Foresters into the
pool, as tradition would have it.
But when figures were checked, the Aggies had contributed
only 124 per cent of their quota
while the Foresters reached 127
per cent, a difference of one
A total of 2,780 students offered their blood in the drive
and 596 were rejected making
the total number of pints collected 2,184.
The university's goal was
3,000 pints.
All that remains now is for
the Foresters to recover their
dignity by dousing some Aggies.

The signatures are now being
collected on special petition
forms and will be mailed next
Monday to Education Minister
Les Peterson.
The petition will urge that the
provincial government grant to
UBC be increased to make the
fee-hike   unnecessary.
The government's "money for
marks" plan, although welcome
"is not nearly adequate," says
the petition.
The students, Vern Erickson

Erickson, the chief artitect
of the scheme, feels there should
be "no financial barriers to higher education."
Erickson said Richmond High
School had already contacted
Education Minister Peterson with
a separate protest and received
"an  evasive  answer."
He decided to organize a
"united high school petition"
after this, he said.
"We want to impress on the
minister that his failure to provide adequate funds for UBC
threatens the educational hopes
of many high school students

Erickson said.

The board of governors has reached a decision on the fee
. President Mackenzie has been notified of that decision.
However the governors left it up to Mackenzie to release
their decision.
Student councillors are anxiously awaiting the announcement, which is expected to come later today.
The board of governors was urged to advert a fee increase
by requesting a supplementary grant of $1,300,000 from the
provincial government.
The proposal, was contained in a six-page brief presented
by the AMS at the'Board of Governors meeting Monday night.
The brief further recommended that following the request
for more money, the exact financial situation of the university;
be made public. , -:? : ■'
"The request for the supplementary grant should be accompanied by a clear and straight forward statement to the
press as to the status of the university's operating finances.
"We believe that such a public statement must be made
because the history of higher education in the province indicates that only when all the facts are placed before the people
. . . has the university received any real measure of financial
relief," stated the brief.
The students stated emphatically that if the government
refuses a supplementary grant the resultant fee increase should
not be more than $50.
". . . an across-the-board academic fee increase of less than
$50 would allow fee income to maintain its share of a budget
which would provide for teaching salaries fully comparable to
those of Toronto . . . and all other expenditures included in the
budget as prepared by the Board of Governors," the brief said.
"A fee increase any larger than $50 would distort possibly
permanently, the relationships existing between the proportion
of revenue coming from various sources as well as magnify the
financial problems of the students."
The student brief said it was fully recognized that a fee
increase of $50 or less would not fill the gap which presently
exists in the budget.
The AMS suggested ways in which the gap could be filled
without an overly large fee boost.
£ the current revenue surplus of the university be taken
into the current budget to advert a financial crisis.
£ should sufficient revenue-surplus funds not be available,
increases in teaching staff and salaries could be spread over a
definite period of years rather than attempting to reach the
"ideal" situation immediately.
0 higher academic entrance requirements should be set.
This would reduce the number of students and the remaining
students would receive a better standard of education at no
extra cost to anyone . PAGE TWO

We like money for marks.
It sets a fine precedent. It sets up the principle that

It indicates that the government may shortly pay all

And some day all students who can profit by a university education will get their fees paid by the provincial
The provincial government's money for marks plan is
a big step towards free university education.
We like it.
What We Don t Like
We don't like the provincial government short changing
the university by $1,550,000.
The Board of Governors asked the B.C. government
for an increase of $2,2(50,000 in' the grant for operating expenses for the coming year.   It got $650,000.

about this.

Inside  UBC's  Symposium
(By Three Symp>sittm Delegates)
In a relative way the Academic Symposium was not a success. We say, in a relative
Way, because the majority of the participants, while coming away with a feeling of some
accomplishment and satisfaction, could not help comparing the weekend unfavorably with the
past two sessions.
The consensus of opinion
seems to be that the calibre
of the participants was not as
high as in previous years.
Many worthwhile individuals
who went last year were not
encouraged to attend this year
and their places were filled, in
part, by less productive (albeit
eager and conscientious) individuals.

Belly Fall of Beat
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On picking up the Ubyssey
of Thursday, Feb. 19, I was
pleased to learn, via the critics'
page, all about the Beat
I can't say how pleased I
was about this, since how I
really know what "beat"
means. It certainly wasn't the
interpretation which I "get"
from beat literature, but then
I guess I was wrong.
And I also learned from Mr.
Hale's article that I am merely
one of those who has been
"grabbed by the social short-
hairs," one of those who "lack
personal courage."
However, by realizing this, I
can now "gain myself"! Come
now, Mr. Hale, just because I
think that "beats" are symptomatic of a rotten and degenerate society, just because
I condemn them for the acceptance of the situation, just because I think they are instruments which prevent social
change, am I a knothead, am
I a conforming boor? Do I lack
courage because I condemn
them for their indifference?
I agree that the "Beat writers
pluck relentlessly at the most
sensitive element of society,"
but I am just as well aware of
this sick society as they are,
and now I want a solution,
not more tripe about what is
For the author of "Portrait
of Dean" I have nothing but
contempt. Obviously, she has
been swept away in the literary "style" of Kerouac himself; her article is hardly intelligible. I doubt if it would
even   be   intelligible   to  Dean!
If she ha<I called this "Subjective Portrait of Dean" it
would have been far mjore fitting.
Let's have a real picture of
Deari Moriarity, "he was a
young jailkid all hung-up on
the wonderful possibilities of
becoming a real intellectual^
and he liked to talk in the
tone and using the words, but
in a jumbled way, that he had
heard from 'real intellectuals' ";
we learn later that "Dean was
making love to two girls at
the same time, . . . his first
wife, who waited for him in a
hotel room, . . . and a new
girl, who waited for him in a
hotel room"; but he never got
to be a "real intellectual," he
was too hung-up with his
women, his road, his It, too
busy dreaming that "he was
having a baby and his belly
was ail bloated up blue as he
lay oh the grass of a California hospital. He is indeed,
"the fullest portrait to date of
the Beat Man," but isn't he
pitiful, and what can we do
about  him?
Okay, Kerouac is honest,
C/'iisberg has courage, and
Corso is sensitive, but who is
concerned, who has foresight;
maybe the answer isn't in the
beats at all, and if not, lets
find it somewhere else now
that we have learned What they
can tell us.
Let's quit "protesting the
narcotic tobacco haze of Capitalism," and do something
about it; let's get rid of Moloch.
But we won't do it by rolling
in the excremehtal mud with
the "beats," but by ridding
society of the parasites which
have infested beats and us
Lorenne Gordon,
Arts II.
When word got around
lhat certain people of proven worth were not going to
be encouraged to attend this
year, disappointed scholars
and arguers decided not to
apply — a chain reaction
started and many worthwhile students stayed home.
It was the Symposium Committee's feeling that different
individuals should be chosen
each year for the aonference to
enable as large a number of
individuals as possible to participate over the years.
Surely the criterion for admission should be what the individual can contribute rather!
than whether he has atended
the symposium before.
As a result of this policy
many people who proved of
very great worth in stimulating discussion and contributing
ideas m the last two years were
not invited and were sorely
When formal discussions
broke up many hurried away
with a sigh of relief to the poker tables.
No clusters of excited people
vieing to have their ideas heard •
and debated.
Clots  maybe,  but  not i clusters. '
Topics for discussion were
neither provocative enough nor
academic enough, in the opinion
of many delegates. It is hard
to say just why.
Topics were, on the surface
at least, broad in scope; but inevitably discussion moved from
the philosophical to the particular. For example, "the responsibility of the university to the
community" degenerated to a'n
unconstructive attack on the
extension department; and the
question of "whether education
is a privilege or a right" became a matter of whether small
businesses, alumni, etc., are
giving their share to the university.
As a result oi this perhaps
the 1959 Syrhposium mibved
farther away from fulfilling
it's purpose. Since a detailed
knowledge of facts and figures
became necessary for constructive contribution to the various
discussions, there was a great
deal of non-participation.
Facts were required, rather
than ideas.
Discussion suffered because
of the stultifying efforts by too
many participants to reach concrete conclusions in terms of
facts  and figures.
We would also suggest that
in future, those who choose the
discussion topics keep in mind
that questions that are closest
to a student's heart are apt to
provoke the most heated discussions.
For example, most students
couldn't care less about the
duties of the Extension Department. Consequently this discussion was as avidly pursued as
a spinster with B. O.
We enjoyed the symposium.
We feel that it was productive
and provocative. We appreciate and respect the Academic Symposium Committee for
its intelligent handling of a difficult job.
Therefore, we hope these criticisms will not be taken as a
blanket condemnation. We
just want to see a good thing
made better. Tuesday, February 24, 1959

More than 60 students and 42

the two-day conference representing every UBC Department
and Faculty.
The Symposium members considered "responsibility" in a
dual light: that of the University to the Community, that of
the Community to the University.

Department, both in Vancouver
and in the Province, was also

"A heartening sign" is what AMS President Chuck Connaghan calls the petition initiated by Richmond High School
students, Vern Ericson and Vern Oldridge.
The petition calls on the provincial government to increase
its grants to the university to
avoid a fee increase.
"This," said Connaghan,
"shows that high school students
realize that they too are
threatened by the proposed
fee increase at university."
Thursday, the AMS president
spoke to eight Vancouver high
school presidents and outlined
the university student's position
in view of the forthcoming fee

starting this week, the AMS
will send out information on the
fee increase to every group in
the province; Canadian Legion

intend to bring the students'

"Our campaign has been
quite successful," Connaghan
said. "Many students wrote
their MLA's and hometown

large has been most co-operative." "We have had a great
number of encouraging phone

Q. E.D.
Gentlemen,  The  Time Has  Come
We Must Discuss  Your Clothes
not "sloppy"!
Have you wondered why, with
all your intelligence and personality, you're still not making
the scene? Well, hide those
hideous argyles under the table,
pull your polished cottons up off
your hips and lets take a fresh
look at things.
Maybe you have a chick who
is mad about you and so decided long ago that she digs
your unimaginative color
schemes and unpressed pants.
Give the girl a break, remove
that item from her attack list.
You don't have to look like a
man of distinction, but do try
to look like a man!
We women wish you'd pay
heed to these cool rules:
1. When trying on, we'll say,
a suit, do endeavor to stand up
straight. It's much asier to be
fitted that way.
The word  this  year  in  fashion  is  "casual",
2. Watch that the pant leg
breaks at the top of the instep
and don't rely on that little
extra length to conceal unshin-
ed shoes.
3. Invest in a tin of shoe
4. When mixing and matching colors, think back to your
grade five art class and try to
remember what goes with what.
Your store salesman may be able
to help you—ask him for a
color chart.
5. If you're wearing a striped
shirt or jacket, why not choose a
solid color tie?
6. Frayed collars and cuffs
can be turned. If they already
have, throw them out. Like the
Elizabethan ruff bit went out
with the Spanish galleons.
7. Holes in your shoe soles
are not attractive. If you want
to look   'beat" don't wear si

girl, but not to her exclusively.
The show features everything
from evening wear to playtogs.
And speaking of playtogs, one of
the girls models a particularly
smart skirt, slimjim, and Bermuda short ensemble in tapestry
basketweave. This "basket-
weave" material is brand new
for   Spring   and  lends  itself  to
everything from the Easter Parade to the beach.
Several Mohair skirt and
sweater ensembles for campus
wear are in the collection. There
is no limit to the colors that this
Mohair comes in.
Another co-ed will model a
chic red coat with detachable
collars which transform the coat
from a smart tailored campus-
career outfit to the most feminine of ensembles.
Enough said — Come and see
i it for yourself!
COMMENTATOR   for the   AWS  Fashion   Show   will  be
fourth year Arts student, Joan Fitzpatrick.

It is the height of irony that the customary gift
to a retiring worker is a gold watch with which
to keep track of the many idle hours confronting
him. Nowadays there are more of these hours
facing the retired man than ever before. In our
own time, modern medicine has increased the
life span by more than 20 years. That's an awful
lot of time to kill — even by listening to the ticking
of that lovely gold watch.
But the attitude towards old age is beginning
to change. Those gold watches are coming in.
handy, because old age is no longer catching us
unawares. Without advance planning, the gift
of time can be just so many dull hours to endure.
But with planning, those hours can be lived to
the full, and enriched by hobbies and travel.
Make good use of your gold watch. Be finan*
cially prepared to enjoy a useful period of retirement. Your NALAC representative can give you
information about NALAC's Lifetime Income Plan,

Basketball Birds lost 101-58'' to Pacific Lutheran College. They
followed this up with a 66-53 victory over Central Washington
on Saturday night before the poorest crowd ever to view an
Evergreen Conference game here.
Friday     evening     600     fans
watched the best amateur team
to come to B.C. this year put on
a fantastic display of basktball
efficiency. Their methodical
breaking of U.B.C.'s zone defence in the first five minutes
of the game was particularly
well executed.
In the first half the UBC first
team had an opportunity to try
to. control the visiting powerhouse.. With the score 'reading
46-29 at half time, coach Pom-
fret decided it was time to see
what the reserves on his team
could do against the P.L.C. experts.
Offensively the second stringers did better thari the big
names on the U.B.C. lineup but
defensively they too fell down.
To their credit however was a
valiant attempt to stop P.L.C.
from breaking 100 points. They

last night's game with Western
Washington College.
Western won the foul filled
game 52-50 after breaking a
fifty-all tie.
Tempers began to flare as the
numjber of fouls increased and
the play was fast but not controlled and by half-time UBC had
scrapped its way to a 24-24 tie.
Combining some cleaver dribbling by Ken Winslade and
tight blocking by Kieth Hartley,
UBC slowly advanced up the
score board to lead 36-38 after
the first ten minutes of the
second half.
With two minutes remaining
the score stood at 48-48. Two
foul shots by Winslade put the
Birds ahead 50-48. Returning
quickly down the floor, Western
plotted two points on a jump
shot. And as UBC tried unsuccessfully to get the edge, Western's defence got the ball quickly up the court and with the
desperate last second shot, Western finished the game 52-50.
Winslade was again high
scorer for the Birds with 13
points, followed by Dave
Dumaresq with 11. Both Hartley
and Wayne Osborne picked up
nine points.

In Canadian restaurants,
the trade mark of cleanliness
Cleanliness, yes! And beauty, too. Nickel-containing stainless steel
protects the food you eat... and makes the restaurants you eat in
more attractive.
Nickel-containing stainless steel resists corrosion from the organic
compounds present in foods. It is easy to clean ... and it has a rich
silvery lustre that stays bright and beautiful for years. No wonder so
many modern Canadian restaurants use stainless steel equipment.
Nickel helps give stainless steel its lasting beauty and its exceptional
resistance to rust and corrosion. Another example of quality Canadian
products made from quality Inco Nickel.
Write for a free copy of the colourful 32-page illustrated booklet entitled" The Exciting Story of Nickel."
Nickel-containing stainless steel coffee urns are good-looking, easy to
clean and resistant to corrosion.
Nickel-containing stainless steel is used rn commercial dishwashing
machines to withstand corrosive detergents.
Milk dispensers and refrigerators made of nickel-containing stainless
steel, inside and out, protect the purity of foods.
Kitchens of modem restaurants use nickel-containing stainless steel
soup kettles, pots, pans, sinks and counter tops.
