Frat race ban sparks row
The subject of racial discrimination
against prospective fraternity members
W-3 raised again and again during
Thursdiy's panel discussion on the desirability of Greek letter societies on
this campus
IFC member Graham Leslie raised
the questioii during his introductory
speech. He said ths fraternities recognize the1 problem, and he felt deeply
that the most effective way to fight
discriminatory clauses in fraternity
constitutions was from within, as a
member.- ,
He said three (out of sixteen) fraternities at UBC who are forced to retain some form of discriminaton because of their American affiliations
"are taking a most active part in fighting: these clauses."
"We are genuinely concerned in
what is a nation-wide    problem," he
continued. 'We are moving ahead,
forcerully and actively trying to remove discriminatory clauses from our
Negative speaker Ken Hodkinson
quoted a six-year-old letter to UBC's
chapter of Alpha Tau Omega, which
does discriminate constitutionally, and
subsequently suggested that ATU, despite its correspondence, was making
very slow progress, if any.
"What has ATU done except write
letters?" Hodkinson asked. "Why
don't they sever connections with their
affiliated groups?"
He was reminded by Leslie that it
had taken "decades and decades" for
minority groups to obtain the freedom
they have today. Leslie also Stated
that four years ago seven to nine UBC
fraternities contained some form of discrimination, whereas now only three
—two by constitution and one by a
'gentlemen's agreement" — actually
"This year the majority of active
chapters voted in favor of throwing
out discriminatory clauses," Leslie
continued. "We are actually making
some concrete steps forward."
Fraternities were defended by Brian
McGavin on the basis of their scholarship attainments, their leadership as
proved by their members' student
council positions, and their community
Discussing the first, he noted that
over 70% of UBC's Rhodes scholars
have been fraternity members.
He also mentioned the inter-fraternity scholarship competitions.
Enumerating some of the philan-
thropic work of fraternities and sororities, he added: "In all these efforts the
Greek letter societies have received
gratitude from -the community."
Fraternities were also praised for
the "broadening effect" they have on
their members' minds. ,
This last statement was disputed by
Ken Hodkinson who stated that,, as a
general rule, a fraternity member was .
'la man with a conformist mind."
"A leader," he said, "is a man who
stands alone, who speaks his mind,
and who is not a member of the mass,"
implying that such leaders were not
fraternity members.
Fourth speaker for the negative was
Lorenne Gordon, who commented that
she didn't need a fraternity or soror-
. ity to aid her in her scholastic achievements. She also said the ideal of
brotherhood within a fraternity was at
variance with the "larger ideal of
brotherhood at large."
The discussion which lasted two
hours was chaired by Dean G. Andrew.

British Columbians continue
to elect the Social Credit government although they think it may
be corrupt, outspoken radio commentator Jack Webster told an
auditorium audience Tuesday.
"They elect the Socreds because they consider them less
corrupt than the former Coalition government," he said.
Speaking on "Integrity in
Government," Webster charged

The "red hairy mass' has
scored another victory with their
warning of the exams.
To the early arrivers on campus the lilypond in front of the
library had taken on a new look.
It had been dyed red.
The warning was a sign posted
nearby, "ARE U WELL RED—
if not then jump."
The color signified two things
to the onlookers: "It must have
been an engineer," said one Aggie.
All that is left now is a scum
on the empty pond's bottom.
Veteran  student
Craigie Thursday laid
to discuss constitutional reform.
Brink, who is serving on the
Students' Council for the third
time, and Craigie, coordinator
of Publications this year and a
veteran of four years on the Engineering Undergraduate Society
Executive, presented a plan for
AMS reorganization to a meeting attended by student councillors and others interested in the
student government problem.
Similar meetings will be held
every Saturday afternoon in the
spring term until some reorganization plan is agreed upon.
Brink and Craigie recommended that the governing body
of the Alma Mater Society consists of. the 16 presidents of undergraduate societies plus an
executive composed of president, vice-president, secretary,
treasurer and perhaps co-ordinator of activities.
The executive would be elected just as council presently is—
on a campus wide basis. The faculty presidents would continue
to be chosen by the members of
the various faculties.
"I think the basic idea got a
good reception," Craigie said after the meeting.
Other features of the plan are:
•   An  Activities   Committee
under which would come  any
group not separately constitut-
administrators   Russ Brink   and  Ross

ed, whose chairman would sit
on council and act as Public
Relations Officer.
• The retention of the Finance, Discipline and Student Union Management Committees by
council, the delegation of other
committees (eg. Homecoming) to
one of the faculties.
• Bidding by faculties for
projects presently controlled by
• Delegation of 'joe-jobs' by
faculty presidents to other members of his faculty executive,
thus leaving the reconstituted
council free for policy decisions.
Aid to Residences
new council's aim
Newly formed inter-residence
council will act as ©o-ordinator
for social activities outside individual council's jurisdiction.
Purpose of the new council,
with Nick Blum of Men's Residence serving as president and
Marion Coon of Acadia, secretary, is to supplement and assist the work of the residences'
student councils.
Social activities, dances, and
sports will be the main themes'
discussed. Page 2

Helkiva Rate
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
A continuing source of annoyance to. myself'and several,
others is the continuing refusal of the Brock Cafeteria to adjust their diseount rates, on
American currency. They are
still charging the six per-cent
discount of the early fall, even
when supplied with the latest
bank rates. As "of noon today,
the rate was 2V4 per cent, as
it has been all fall.
I am not objecting to the interest of six cents, but to the
violation of the principle involved. I am even willing to
supply them with the latest
bank rates.

The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Shortly after those gleaming
black pathways were laid to
the south of the library and in
frpntof the Physics Building, I
made a bet with a friend that
r/ithihn six weeks the continuity of these strips would be
marred by ths appearance of at
least one ditch cutting across
the new pavement. This bet I
won twice over.
A few days ago, in a bet
with the same person, I predicted that the Eskimos would
win the Grey Cup.
The lesson to be drawn from
these two statements is as clear
to me as it probably is to you.
Yours didactically,
That's Progress
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
How delightfully one is occasionally surprised! With the
renewed hope for future
greatness does one perceive
that within the sanctums of
city planning there lurks an
hitherto uperceived fugitive—
How reassuring it is to note
that a city administration un- .
able to cope with slum-clearance, traffic tie-ups and such
considerations as an adequate
highway link between West
Van. and the City can, when
called upon, rise to the occasion.
At this crucial stage of public relations when every available tax-dollar is dedicated to
works programmes to alleviate
the unemployment situation,
when the eyes of the entire
confederation are upon our
thriving Metropolis, our leaders
have decked the main streets,
no doubt at considerable expense, in the bold patterns of
Klee or Brague, in the bolder
palette of Mondrian.
Will not so fundamental an
endeavour uplift the economy
and assure Vancouver a foremost place in the esteem of
every thinking individual?

Muck ado about nothing
The Intellectual Stunt Committee Wishes to express
.its sincere appreciation  to Mr. Derek Allen for helping
ISC to promote some of its aims through his misinformed
Campus voice Jabberwacky.
However, Mr. Allen assumes,, and worse, creates information which is not only incorrect, but blasphemous,
etc., etc.
Firstly, Mr,,Allen,stated that ISC was in, competition
with the "red hairy onass," as he chose to call the EUS.
I might pAnt out, Mr. Allen, that far from being in competitive, the ISC is, iri many respects, complementary to
the Engineers in some of its aims.
The ISC choose to promote interest in campus activities
and dispel apathy over many campus issues.
It attempts to do this through well planned humrous,
harmless,   stunts.   If   the   EUS   wishes to   engage  in  this
activity, ISC appreciates this as being an indication that
;  other groups; are .concerned over the things mentioned, to
wit:.c,ampu;Sapathy,and disinterest.
In some respects, Noble's work encourages our noble
ISC admires and respects, but does not envy, any
campus organization^ whatsoever its affiliation, which can
carry out an ingenious; j welkfprmulated stunt such as that
which has caused the cry of "buck Fusters" to resound
through these hallowed halls of learning.
Secondly, Mr. Allen infers that ISC is a creature of
the Faculty of Arts and Science. Mr. Allen again displays
his ignorance. ISC is a campus wide organization integrating intellectual stunters and enthusiasts from all faculties
including Arts, Education, Commerce and note Mr. Allen,
ISC points with pride at the executive members of
the EUS who sits with fraternal and collective wisdom on
the Organizing Committee of the ISC. So much for that!
Mr. Allen, you also intimate that our organization is
not presently functioning. Alas, 'tis true,' However, I
must point out that, the primary function of all ISC
members is not to create intellectual stunts, but to engage in that academic fight for survival which will allow
us to return in January as members of this community of
Look for us then, Mr. Allen, for we might be looking
for you for intellectual discourse, of course. Merry

Student Government Series:
Why USAC died
Ed. Note: The author of this _
article, Peter Haskins. was
chairman of the Haskins Commission set up last year to investigate the slate of student
I write more in sorrow than
in anger regarding the failure of
the jo-called USAC. I say so-
called because any resemblance
of this body to that proposed in
my report is purely coincidental.
The USAC experimented with
this term, was at best an abortion of the Student Assembly
(or USAC) suggested in the
Commission's report. Like many
abortions it was the result of
a miscarriage and, as occurs in
many miscarriages, the result
was still-born. It is for this reason that I must take strong exception to Russ Robinon's remark, "No matter how good it
looked in theory, it just hasn't
worked we're better off without
it," which gives an entirely inaccurate picture of the true position. What was attempted was
not what was envisioned in my
report and I regard the wording
of the USC motion "That the
proposal of USAC as set down
in the Haskin's Report be. abolished" to be, to say the least,
;,'    * * *
Let us reconsider the,facts. The
assembly proposed was a strong,
effective one, to place the administration where I sincerely
believes it belongs—in the hands
of the students—with powers
commensurate with its position.
Such an  assembly would  be
responsible   for   the   day-to-day,
running of student activities and
as such  would   incorporate all
facets of student life. Such  an
Dear Santa ....
organization would not be a
mere appendage of USC, but
rather USC—along with other
"interest" groups—would be an
integral part of it.
Now let us consider what actually happened. A weak, insipid, uninspired USAC was nervously launched lacking in
everything needed to make it
work at all. It lacked effective
power, purpose and direction. A
body to which Council paid lip
service but to which counicl
gave, no real support. It is not
entirely fair to blame the chairman, he was given a near impossible job,
The best driver in the world
cannot successfully drive a car
without any gasoline in the
tank. Three weeks ago I had a
talk with a member of the executive of the Students' Council
pointing out that the unfortunate mis-application or rather
non-application of the USAC
concept was one which could
only end is failure and suggested that more power and activities be allotted to the group:
The reply? —' "The USAC
Chairman has only to ask and
he will get those powers." This
is not the impression I got when
talking to the Chairman. So even
the powers given to the Chairman seem vague.
I believe from the talks I had
with delegates privately that
they were both eager and able
to put the scheme into effect.
They wished to get to grips with
the problem and were willing to
work hard, should effective leadership be provided. There was
no such work, no cohesion, it
was at the best a pitiful parody
of the body proposed. No wonder those who atender were dis
mayed and disillusioned—so was
•k -k *
But this comedy of errors we
have witnessed has a few things
on the credit side also. In the
first place the importance of the
problem has now been realized.
Council, I think, have learned
their lesson, and are to be commended for starting up their Saturday meetings.
Further, whatever plan is
adopted must be property tested. "Nothing ventured ,nothing
gained" is as true now as it ever
was, and certainly nothing has
been ventured or gained so far
this year.
The commission did have the
result that something was done,
however half-heartedly, which
is a welcome change to the fate
awarded previous reports. The
fiasco this term made it abundantly clear that whatever measures are taken they must have
effective leadership, as well as
support from all levels and sections of university student life.
Finally I believe that the con;
trol of administration will have
to be in the hands of a responsible student assembly, and council may as well face the fact
now, unpalatable as it may be.
The assembly proposed in the
Retoort may or may not be the
answer, but this is something we
shall now never be able to find
*     *     *
We can only hope that, like
the Pheonix iPix a new and effective Student Government will
arise from the rubble and ashes
of the old. If this is so the labourers that went into those
past efforts will not have been
in vain.
We can only hope.

Christmas is far more than the time for gift giving
and wild parties.
Christmas is the anniversary of the birth of the rnan
who laid the foundation for our way of life.
Christmas is the season of hope—the season when we
reaffirm our faith in God and man.
This is the key to Christmas.
The joy of seeing charity for its own sake. The nostalgia in seeing the light on anticipation in a child's eyes.
The happiness of family reunions.
The hope of peace in all faces.
This is Christmas. We hope you have a good one.
The unbelievable has happened. A new elapsed time record
was set at Monday night's regular Student Council meeting. The
session was adjourned after only three hours of rather apathetic,
debate with a few heated exchanges.
The first issue to raise any interest on the council's part was
ratification oi: the constitution of the Nuclear Disarmament Club,
Some councillors didn't seem to like the idea of such an organization operating on campus. They didn't seem to know why they
were prejudiced against it but they certainy weren't happy about
it. Most of the councillors were, thank God, unbiased towards this
sort of undertaking. PRO Mark Daniels was extremely eloquent
in his defence of freedom of association and the worthiness of
such an organization.
Some councillors also seemed dubious about the second club
constitution to come up or ratification, that of the Folk Song
Society. They questioned whether this was a worthwhile club.
This opposition seems hard to understand unless perhaps some of
the more tone deaf councillors are anti-folk singing.
The motion to abolish USAC (University Student Activities
Committee) raised little debate. It seemed almost a foregone con-
cusion. In fact, I could hardly see the need to abolish the Committee as it has quite obviously been dead from the day of its in-
ception. However, kill it was the request and that's just what the
Council did. To sum up, I quote Coordinator Russ Brink: "USAC
is dead, as dead can be!"
There was some discussion of a new proposal on student
government by Publications Coordinator Ross Craigie, however*
a real disection of this proposal was left over to the special Saturday sessions.
All you Brock types take notice. Stake your claims oh a spot
in the present Brock, the new Student Union Building appears to
be fast slipping away. The council has been told that the University would not be in favor of the Students committing themselves
for more than a five-year period. This coupled with a change in
Food Services philosophy, not noticeably for the better* almost
completely kills the chance of building the proposed $3.2- million
structure. :" •; ■ 'S; -';
The council was informed, however, that if - they "wanted--to
put $500,000 into a new winter sports arena, the>uriivefesityBjyigfcifc-i
make a contribution. The university would also be glad,.! no> doubt, .
to take over.the building for compulsory P.E. as well!
Second Member Eric Ricker aptly expressed most people's
reaction to the counter proposal with the remark, 'It sounds to
me like we've been sidetracked." At this point some councillors
suggested that the original proposal be resubmitted to President
Mackenzie in even stronger terms. The matter was left at that for
the time being. We will, however, undoubtedly hear more about
it soon.
Treasurer Russ Robinson remarked that future financial re*
quests would be carefully examined as "the margin is two-thirds
spent, the brakes are going on."
Council plans to have 40,000 copies of the Open House edition
of the Ubyssey distributed to B.C. senior high school students.
The next student council meeting will be Monday, January 9.

for much har-der tests.
When out on the mall there arose
such a clatter
I   tore   from   the  pub  to see
what was the matter.
Away from the  library  I flew
like a shot
With   camera   all  ready   and
flashbulbs all not.
And what to my wondering eyes
should appear
But a minature truck all loaded with beer;
With a little old driver so lively
and sage
I knew in a moment it must
be Dean Gage.
With   a   shout,   with   a  scream
with a  clanking of chains,
Through the mist, through the
fog, through the wild driving rains    ■ '
A white Fuster's tow-truck hove
into view;
Six     leering    policemen    on
board for a crew.
"Hey! Stop  there!"  they shout
ed. "Parking's illegal!"
(And above them flew slowly
an ominous seagull.)
A long "wicked claw caught the
truck by the rear
And poor old Dean- Gage was
thrown out on his ear.
His coursers they strained at the
leash, but in vein,
Till  a  bold Engineer  saw at
last through the rain
This dreadful debacle of carnage
and waste,
And arousing his trends, they
raided the place!
They picked up the Dean  and
,     held him on high;
From the red-sweatered crowd
rose a. full-throated cry:
"Let's all buck Fusters" was the
clarion   call,
And   seizing   the   tow-truck,
they rushed down the mall.
Dean Gage called to his steeds;
as they   faded  from  sight,
"Merry Christmas to all, and
to   all  a   goodnight."

Noted world philanthropist S,

Easter Bunny," said Claus in an

"Let them strike. I may not

Santa Claus refuted rumors
that he was breaking up his
long-standing     marriage     with
Mrs. Claus to marry Whistler's
"Ho, Ho, Ho," Claus said exclusively to this reporter.
Mrs. Claus denied rumors she
was in lending to marry perennial student Ross Craigie of the
University of B.C.
Claus said the final straw was
the attitude of his children.
"Now, even they don't believe
in me. They just call me the old
"Ho Ho Ho."
Reaction to cancellation of
the traditional trip varied from
world leaders.

THE      UB
lithographs on show
An exhibition of lithographs by contemporary artists is being held at the Fine Arts
Gallery. These works are part of a greater
collection which was displayed at the Cincinnati museum in 1958. Artists from all over
the world are represented in it, including celebrities like Picasso and Salvador Dali.
, '—ithogrsphy is quite a recent process, compared to other printing media. It was developed in 1798 by a Bavarian named Aloys Sene-
felder. Basically it uses the repellent action
of grease and water. A drawing is first made
on a flat piece of limestone with a crayon or
similar instrument that will leave a greasy
image. Water is then applied to the whole surface; it wets the stone but leaves the drawing
intact. A roller charged with a greasy ink is
then run over the stone; the ink penetrates
the drawing only, due to the principle enunciated above. Finallythe design is printed on
paper, with a press. Each colour will usually
require a separate stone. A zinc plate can be
used instead of a stone, and is preferred by a
great many artists today. The number of
prints made out of the same drawing is commonly about fifty.
*        *        *
One of the advantages of lithography is that
it permits the artist to retouch his design at
will, but on the other hand it does not allow
him the same spontanaiety of touch that is possible in painting. It is safe to say that the artist is not in complete control of his moves,
and overlappingforms will often result, not by
specific intention. There is also about most
lithographs a certain dullness which reveals
them to be prints.-They lack the freshness and
vitality which true paintings have and the
<real lithograph artist is the one who' knows
how to counteract this defect.
Since the beginning of the century, litho-
grapy has undergone an extraordinary development. Artists have applied themselves especially to the rendering of texture; and for
this they have used instruments ranging from
a delicate pen to a coarse piece of wood.
This variety of texture is the outstanding
feature found in the present exhibition. It is
really fascinating to guess as to how the artist
has achieved his effects. One may argue that
this is not enjoyment of art as art but it may
come after the work has been enjoyed aesthetically, and undoubtedly it holds a great
deal of pleasure for the aware observer.
Another characteristic of this exhibition is
that it includes realistic compositions as well
as abstract ones. Again this shows how the
medium, although limiting the spontanaiety
of the artist, still allows him to express himself almost as freely as though he were working on a genuine painting.
Obviously ,the works exhibited have not
been chosen so much for their formal content
as for their originality in using the medium.
The visitor who bears this in mind will live
an  experience  doubly  enjoyable and  profits
able. _ ....    .-..,..

The purpose of comedy is,
by ridicule, to chasten or correct the manners and customs
of the age. Heavens knows this
is an age that jieeds some
chastening and correction!
The title, "To Reason Why"
is taken from Tennyson's poem,
"The Charge of the Light Brigade." According to Tennyson^,
"someone had blundered," in
giving the order for the fatal
charge, but the soldiers were
trained not' to think about
blunders. "Theirs not to make
rejVy« Theirs not to reason
"Why? Why,? Why?" this is
the insistent question of the
young child looking at the
world. The adult get all that
nonsense knocked out of him;
he learns to take his orders and
never reason why, learns to
believe that there is someone
up there, in City Hall, at Victoria, at Ottawa,* who really
dees know the reason why.
But suppose there is nobody
■who knows! I am haunted by
the vision of an army marching at night,  through a  mist.
Each man can see only the man
in front of him, and follows
that man trusting that somewhere up ahead is someone
who knows the way. At the
head of the army is an officer,
riding a horse. The officer is
drunk, and half-asleep. He occasionally kicks the horse in
the ribs to keep it moving, and
the horse simply picks eut a
fairly easy path through the*
rubble and mud and goes
where it likes. Nobody makes
reply, nobody reasons why.
"To Reason Why" is a
comedy about a man who dares
to reason why, and who discovers where it gets him.
As     for      "The     Washing
Machine," well, there's this repressed salesman, and this girl
who is absolutely free from
sin. It's conflict between the
spiritual and the mechanical,
if you see what I mean. Is
there a solution for this conflict? See 'The Washing Machine" and find out.

Atkinson "one of the memorable works of the century," is,

press representative for the
company, "a play for today,
a play of stature, faith and
hope, with an optimistic answer ... a summary of the
reviews," he continues, "reveal
it to be a warm play which
brings with it comedy, pathos,
romance,, comfort and stimulation."
The plot concerns an imens-
ley rich, enormously successful and completely happy
American business man, who
suffers a series of disasters of
the kind witti which our generation throughout the world
is sadly familiar. The play
shows modern parallels to Job's
fall, the test of his faith, and

A reading by seven undergraduate poets or apprentice
poets, Alex Annan, George
Bowering, David Bromige,
Maxine Gadd, Joe Horsman,
Lionel Kearns and Grace Kot-
zer, will be given at noon today in Buchanan 104. These
students, and two other
who have a close connection with this page, were invited to give their views on
their reasons or non-reasons for
writing poetry. All complied,
except Mr. Annan, who opined
he would rather kiss a toad.
(No toad is at present available
for comment), and Mr. Horsman, who could not find our
Here, then, you may read
what these sseven replied:
How does a poem-maker do
(why?) his poems? So easy to
lie in bed unj angling the alarm-
qlock Humped up warm eyelids
heavy like drowning in eiderdown (ZAP) nameless animal
yanks away the covers you lie
there skinny and blinking and
you (icy, yes) see the sun chaz-
zling through the windowfrost.
(POEM) Write it down you
miss some, too warm, want the
frostsun to chazzle a poem for
you. How does it work? I don't
know — read them, Pound,
Williams, Corso — they don't
know: poems are designs made
by    the    images    blacking    in
words and things on white paper. Poetry is going there —
(has to go there, as it has to
keep mutating itself—) to that
place where it is not only the
word-maker in the head that
composes, but all the chambers
and throughways of the total
psyche contributing themselves
to the spontaneous delivery of
(not words from the word-
maker) those sporules of energy that assemble the thing.
Will we make it? First we gotta learn to get out of bed.
I write poetry because I find
intense pleasure in the sound
and look of words — such is
this predisposition that I "see"
in print everything I hear —-
and in the sorting and shaping
oi these objects to build images
which in turn, I hope, will form
a poem.
Not images alone but narrative are necessary to me in a
poem, however; I want direction ss well as texture. This
narrative line leads from the
jumbled recollection of one's"
experience to an entity which,
for a while at least, represents
to me a truth.
But this is still a very private
truth, unless enough readers
who are Not-Poet can slip into
the poet's shoes or his bed or
his hangover and say "Yes, this

These previous lines were to
fill up a gaping space.
Poetry is an act of love. A
poem is a machine that bangs
the soul. A poet is anyone who
fashions a structure containing
a potential experience for
someone else.
All experience is holy.
A poem can .only be judged
by its effect. The poet shifts
words, noises, marks and figures into what he hopes will be
a significant pattern. Any trick
or device he uses is legitimate
if it works. A bad poem is a
dull poem. Value exists in direct proportion to the intensity
of the individual reader's personal reaction.
It is the poem itself that is
important, not the poet. Let the
poem stand alone; let it function as a poem, as a source of
experience, as a sacrament. The
historical psychological or technical approach to poetry is
I write because I have superfluous things to say. My poetry
is non utilitarian and I desire
that it be so. Art is valid only
if it is beautiful. That which
is beautiful does not exist in
an absolute sense, but only as
it is evoked.
Today it is demanded that
everything have justification,
even existence. I, for one, cannot justify my existence much
less the existence of my poetry.
I think that this is fine.
Now unlike formerly, I know
there is a reason for me to
write poetry. It begins with
some irritation — not necessarily unpleasant — which eventually causes the secretion of a
soothing substance — the poem.
But the scope of the poem always, in some way or other,
transcends the original irritation —- rather, that becomes
only a part of the poem. I don't
like neat poetry, and try not to
write it; biblical material is
best for avoiding it, there being
nothing tidy about human relations.

He is an authority on colonial history and administration
with special interest in the
Commonwealth. In 1956 and
1957 he was on a year's leave of
absence in Africa where he engaged in research on British
colonial history and administration.
In the 1930s' Professor Nowlan initiated and carried out negotiations with the Carnegie
Corporation in New York which
resulted in two grants of  $75,-
000 to establish fellowships for
Canadian students to carry out
postgraduate work.
The fellowships, which were
administered by the Royal Society of Canada, were for $1,500
each. Ten were available each
year for ten years.
As a result of Professor Now-
lan's efforts, Cyrus Eaton, the
industrialist, established two
$1,000 fellowships in mathematics for Canadian students to do
postgraduate work in mathematics at the University of Chicago.
The two students who held
the fellowships were Professor
Ralph James, now head of
UBC's mathematics department,
and Dr. Ralph Hull, former head
of the mathematics department
at Purdue University.
While at UBC Professor Nowlan wrote a textbook on analytical geometry which was in use
in more than 50 Canadian and
American universities. He was
a founder of the Canadian Mathematical Congress and a member of the executive for a number of years.

WCIAU future rests on Manitoba
The University of Manitoba
has only a fair chance of
entering a football team in the
"Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union next
WCIAU officials have
threatened to expel Manitoba
from the league if they do not
enter a football team in the
league in 1961.
If Manitoba is expelled
from WCIAU competition, it is
quire possible UBC will withdraw also, and the league
would  become  defunct.
However it is reported not
many student councillors or
athletic officials at U 'of M
take this threat seriously.
Manitoba is reportedly quite
content to operate without a
football team, and if they do
form one, it would probably
be on a trial basis for 1961.
UBC Athletic Director
"Bus" Phillips said he was not
in favour of expelling Manitoba if they didn't field a
football team. "We would like
to see Manitoba enter the
league in '61 on a partial
basis," he said.
"Manitoba    could   play    a
couple of exhibition games
with both Alberta and Saskatchewan which wouldn't cost
them too much, and we could
fill our schedule with Evergreen League exhibitions."
However Phillips must know
where he stands soon or it
will be difficult to fill the
holes already allotted the
Manitoba games.
A student report made this
(summer has just been released. It stated that an initial outlay of $25,000 would
be necessary and about $15,000
subsequent years.
The   report   recommended
that, if a football team is desired, it be started with a
three - year program. During
the first two years, the team
would be trained and equipped properly, but would not
compete in the WCIAU.
It would instead play local
junior teams and perhaps the
U of Saskatchewan. This
method, which would cost
about $10,000 a year less than
WCIAU competition, would
reveal whether football could
be successful in Manitoba.
This report, however, was
drawn up before the WCIAU
gave its ultimatum,. When the
report was tabled at the last
Students' Council meeting, the
president said that discussion
of football in January would
be in light of this ultimatum.
The council voted to send
a letter to the WCIAU executive condemning them for
their "arbitrary action."
However, the whole situation looks dim at Manitoba.
Last year the majority of students voting on a football referendum passed it, but the
students' council threw it out.
Only about 40 per cent of
lhe students actually voted.
Birds honor Dang
By Mike sone
Joe E. Dang, long-time custodian of the Birds' Nest in the
depths of UBC Stadium,, was honoured by the Thunderbird
and Jayvees at the annual football banquet Thursday.
Joe, who is leaving this year
after five yesrs of faithful service to football, was presented
with a clock radio by grateful
players and coaches.
Receiving football accolades
■were graduating Bird Captain
Roy Bianco and guard Jim Beck.
Bianco was voted Most Inspirational Player by his team-mates
and was awarded a trophy as the
coaches' choice for Most Valuable Back. Beck, a standout two
way performer received the
Most Valuable Lineman trophy,
and was further honored by being chosen team captain for
next year.
Also elected captain was yet
rean center Ray Towers.
But this was essentially Joe
Dang's day. It was oyer five
years ago that Joe walked into
the Athletic Office and aaked for
a manager's position.
In addition to managing football and ferrying Coach Gnup
on his Volkswagen taxi service,
Joe has found time to do the
scorekeeping and timekeeping
chores for most of the basket,
ball games at Memorial Gym.
"I don't know what we're going to do when Joe leaves," added. Phillips.   "Joe assumed re
sponsibilities far beyond his
normal duties, and was almost a
member of the staff. He was respected by players and staffers
Surrounded by wisps of cigar
smoke, Coach Frank Gnup was
reminiscing. "Joe made one big
mistake over the years," he said.
"That was when we went to
Tacoma two yesrs ago and forgot all the footballs at home. The
players got so mad they went
but that day and whipped College of Puget Sound."
''Joe is the best football manager in the country," added
Gnup, emphatically." He doesn't
take any guff from anybody, but
when he's there, the players
don't have to worry about a
And so it goes; It has been
rumored that, upon graduation,
Joe Dang will give the football
stadium back to UBC.
