DEAN F. H. SOWARD calls Russia's self-s tyled role" in the Middle East, one of "champion of human rights and the economic fri end" during a U.N.-sponsored panel discussion
on  "Asia — Giant  in Turmoil,"  Thursday  in Arts 100.
"Russia Believes Bahgdad Pact
Colonialism" - Dean Soward
Russia  believes  that  the  real  aim  of  the Baghdad Pact is the "cotention and retention
of colonial powers" according to Dean Soward, Department of History.
Dean Soward made this statement Thursday while speaking to students  in  Arts  100.
The panel discussion was sponsored by the UBC U.N. Club and was the sixth part of then-
series on "Asia, A Giant in Turmoil."

Spring Blood
The results of the Spring
Blood Drive "is indeed an enviable record for the University
and one that they may feel
justly proud of," according to
W. A. Freeman, Blood Donor
Panel Organizer.
Freeman in a letter to President MacKenzie stated that the
Red Cross was "pleased with
the results."
Over 2,500 staff and students
attended the Spring Clinic held
in the Armouries from February
10 to 17.
"Tliis brings the grand total
of donor attendance at UBC
Blood Donor clinics since the
start of the free blood transfusion service in 1947 to 39,698

pints," Freeman said.

were Dr. Laponce and Mr. Faw-
sie Asundi. The panelists discussed the future of the Bagdad
Pact in the Middle East.
Referring to Russia's position
in the Middle East, Dean Soward said that her self-styled role
in this area was one of "champion of human rights and the
economic friend,"
"Naturally," continued Soward, "the Russians don't want,
anti-communist strength in the
Middle East."
Dr, Laponce, of the Department of Economics, outlined the
position of France and Britain
in relation to the Pact.
He pointed out that the treaty
had been proposed to stop communist expansion after Russia
made claims to Turkish territory.
The multilateral defence pact
was signed in 1954 by Britain,
France, Turkey and Pakistan.
Iraq signed in 1955,
Dr. Laponce stated that the
future role of the Pact would be
to provide a link between NATO
and SEATO (South East Asia
Treaty Organization),

state  should  side  with  Britain

UBC Development Fund officials are hoping for a substantial over-subscription of the
present $7,500,000 objective
following Premier W. A. C. Bennett's offer to increase the
matching grant to $10,000,000.
Paul E. Cooper, general chairman of the campaign, said the
Premier's announcement was
most welcome at this time. "It
is now possible for us to assure
everyone that their gift will be
eligible for matching by the
provincial government," h e
Mr. Cooper also said the Development Fund is "substantially over" the $6,000,000 mark.
"The remainder of this week
will indicate whether or not we
will reach our present objective," he said.

ment Fund    headquarters    are

Remove The Disguise..
We look very pretty today. For weeks we've been donning a disguise which makes us look happy and satisfied vvith
our financial situation. However, in case the public suspects
that all 'this yelling abotrt "lack of funds'' is meaningless
grumbling, maybe we could peek iinder the disguise and see
ihe true situation .
The situation in sketch is this:
1. By 1972 there i.s likely to be a student enrolment of
n.OOO. At present there i.s an enrolment of nearly 9.000, and
<.t  least  1,000  more will  he  added  next  year.
2. With existing buildings, and wiih buildings now being
(.msmtrufsed,   this   enrmmeni   cannot   Im   housed.

!m' capital expenditure.-, to uiu'd a university whmh in tacil-
dims, at least, could meet the number "[ students iikely to
4. The provincial government (which, under the BNA
Act is respon. able ior education and clucaPenal }acililies)
gave the university 810 million at a rate of Sl million per
yec.r for the next ton years. However, this was insufficient, and
f-;udenls petitioned the government for more money.
5. Tho government promised nothing in lasl year's budget
speech but later agreed to a matching; granl, based on the
m,,ndition that the public provide up to Sri million, later raised
to >"i'o» million, and last Monday raised by Premier Bennett lo
810 million.
Meanwhile another problem has arismi (if was never
■'mrnianl, but it. received, until recently, relatively little notice).
Thai is die problem of operating expermes. Included in operating expenses are salaries for faculty, which, a I. tho moment

i'm operating grant to 81,100,1)01) above (ha! of las! vear, Sal),000

7. The government raised the granl only .'.'!;")!),01)0 plus Iho
.•loeds'd monies for the Education College.
S. 'The university faces a crisis. Although I he Development
Campaign, is fairly successful and, with the "'Matching Granl"
nciiics. will give aid to capital expor.dilures (not all Iho aid
resumed), tho universily is unable to; (a) pay wages to an
adequate number of facully members to .meet the demands
of a rising enrolment; (b) increase the wages of existing pro-
!esM>rs, to a level offered al other largo universities or offered
by other professions: (c) offer contracts to now staff members
'■etauso it. can't afford to guarantee decent wages; (ell lower
or oven maintain at ils present level, lhe ralio of students to
professors. UBC's ratio of 15 lo 1 is higher than any other
Canadian university.
Jn oilier words UBC is in a position whore it may not bo
able lo keep the staff it has (they are able lip get a better ratio
and better wages elsewhere), and will have extensive difficulties in wooing new staff at a time when our student population is increasing rapidly.
The next logical step is a request for a supplementary
budget from the provincial government. If this is not forthcoming, the university (which we are daily telling you is YOURS)
may be forced to "peg" enrolment — a step which means that
many potential students will be stopped from gaining the education to which they ha\x?, in our democratic system, a right.

Welcome to Open House;
just wipe your feet and step
We're sure you will appreciate the care and attention
that has gone into this project,
this display of the marketable
products of learning.
We've been careful to see
that all displays will be neat,
simple and colorful, and we
have closed the Library to
make sure that there won't be
any bookish types to get in the
way of the authorized sales
Yes, sir, I think we've made
UBC as honest and appealing
as any of the manufacturers'
displays at the PNE, or even a
hot-rdd show. Yes, sir. it's
been a lot of work, and I'm
sure you'll appreciate it.
Just fbllovv me..
Now here, here on the Main
Mall, is the symbol of Open
House. This handsome tower,
erected  by    the    architecture
students, symbolizes the great
growth and progress of UBC.
Pardon me? Oh, those panels
with the holes in them, yes.
Well, you see, the tower symbolizes the growth and . . .
pardon? Oh, you mean the
other panels, the ones without
holes. Well, you see, the tower symbolizes the growth and
the . . . and the . . . um, the
Just  step  this   way,  please.
Lots of fine exhibits this way.
Here we have a group Of Physics professors recreating, in
authentic costume, Pascal's
famous demonstration of barometric pressure. Which one is
Pascal? Well, he's the fellow
on the ladder. Oh, you mean
who was Pascal? Well, he was
the fellow that did the experiment in the first place. Why
certainly, these men have experiments oi their own to do.
Why   don't   they   demonstrate
their own? Well, you see, oh!
no, no, Pascal isn't an alumnus
of UBC. He . . . now look!
We've put a lot of work into
this thing! Well, this display
seems to be over now, so let's
move along, over to the Buchanan Building.
Just remember that this fine
show, all these fine exhibits,
are for your benefit and enjoyment. This is a really great
university, as official interpreters, those girls with the badges, will show you, I'm sure.
Now, um, if there is anything else you'd like explained,
I'm sure all these clearly-
written pamphlets will take
care of it.
Pardon? No, I'm afraid the
Library is closed, and . . . pardon? No, I'm afraid that most
of the professors have gone
home, but I'm sure you won't
miss them. There's plenty to
do, and don't forget those pamphlets.

Lasl year, after the famous
"Six-Minute Fizzle", the feeling ;■■ gainst general meeting';
ran high. They were rowdy,
inadequate, a waste oi' time and
money, and totally incapable
o: hand!;og lhc business which
came  be fore  il.
Council, therefore, proposed
si p! m to eliminate Fall Gen-
ei\ 1 Meetings. Councillors have
always wanted to bo tree ot
this millstone around their neck
and the present unrest gave
Ihem a  perfect   opportunity.
However, the sludenl body,
while recognizing tiie faults in
general meetings, still wanted
thc opportunity to have their
say. and the referendum failed
even lo get a 50 per cent vole
(two-thirds   necessary   to   ps'-.s.sh
Undaunted, the Council a!
their last nice! ing decided to
try a new approach and offer
the strut'uit bod; an Austin-
Ileal;, for lhe old jalopy which
had (in their opinion) broken
down. No more rowdy meetings
which haven't the foiesight and
clear head of a Council: instead every 50 sludents will

Lie! lordlier) a delegate who
will attend a special assembly
thai will act in place of the
old  general   medings.
Why this new body will be
free from Ihe vices the old <>:m
suffered under, III never know.
Surely a reduction in si/o won't
endow   the   meeting   with   any
greater foresight or knowledge.
Thst can only come through
publicity and effective communications through the undergraduate societies.
However, any vices whieh

by the Government of the people, our University could noi
exist? Only the very fortu- f
nate wealthy students could
afford to attend, and much of
the genius of the ordinary studenl. would bc lost.

tiling and with a clean, healthy
mind we .should be able to accept it.

New Arts Prizes
From Canada Council
The Canada Council has announced the awarding of scholarships and fellowships "to foster and promote the study and
enjoyment of, and the production of works in, the arts, humanities and social sciences".
- --- — ■'•     These grants will be awarded
annually to post-graduate students, scholars, artists in arts,
humanities and sciences. The
awards are based on the following four categories;
ers Degree — average value of
$1200 for study leading to Master degree for one year. This is
tenable in Graduate faculty of
any Canadian university.
SENIOR — For study outside
Canada for one year, $4,000
(plus travel) — for scholars, artists, musicians, writers and
other workers well established
in arts, humanities and sciences.
FELLOWSHIP — Pre-Doctors
Degree — average value of
$2000 (plus travel) for study
leading to Doctor degree for one
year, subject to renewal. Applicants must hold a Master degree
or equivalent.
JUNIOR — For study or work
in the arts in Canada or elsewhere for one year. Average
value $2000 for young artist,
scholars, musicians, writers,
practitioners and teachers of exceptional promise.
These scholarships and fellowships are to cover exclusively travel, study or work to be
done only in the fields or arts,
humanities and Social Sciences.
A grant of $5000 per year for
three years has been made to
UBC by the New York Life Insurance Co. This grant will
provide funds for research, fellowships, scholarships and bursaries in the field of Canadian
Life Insurance.
UBC is the first Canadian institution to receive such assistance. For some years, New
York Life has been making such
grants to American universities
where there is an established
program of life insurance education.
Dr. E, D. MacPhee, dean of
the faculty of commerce and
business administration said:
"Professor L. G. J. Wong has
been in charge of this program
at UBC for the past five years,
and it is anticipated that graduate students from other Canadian universities will be attracted to this University to carry on
research and training in Canadian Life Insurance.
UBC Dean of Administrative
and Inter-Faculty Affairs,
handles applications for the
thousands of dollars" in scholarships, prizes and bursaries
awarded each year to outstanding UBC students.
Applications for the Women's Press Club Scholarship
are now being received by
Dean W. H. Gage.
Deadline is March 10.
T h e Scholarship, worth
$250, is awarded annually by
the Women's Press Club,
Western Division, to a woman
student who has indicated interest and ability in any field
of journalism,
Form for application can be
obtained in the Dean's Office,
Arts Building, Clippings ot
published or unpublished articles are required,
Announcement has been made
of the Interregional Scholarships sponsored by the National
Federation of Canadian University Students.
It is hoped these scholarships,
for undergraduate students, will
promote a broader outlook academically and geographically,
and offer an opportunity for
special study, otherwise unobtainable,
The scholarships will provide
one year free tuition and one
year waived Student's Council
fees at a selected university in
one  of these regional divisions:
(a) British  Columbia;
(b) Alherta,   Saskatchewan
and Manitoba;
(c) Ontario and Quebec;
(d) Maritime  Provinces.
The scholarship is for one
year only and the applicant will
return home for the final year
to obtain a degree. The grants
are to encourage interchange
between the two cultures in
Canada on a university level.
In the will of the late Right
Honourable William Lyon Mackenzie King, provision was made
for a Board of Scholarship Trustees to award annually a number
of scholarships to be known as
The Mackenzie King Travelling
Members of the Board of
Trustees consist of: Dr. L, W,
Brockington of Ottawa, Dr. F.
Cyril James of Montreal, and
Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie
of Vancouver,
It is expected that four or five
scholarships of not less than
$1500 each will be available for
study in the fall of 1958. Scholarships are open, on application,
to graduates of any Canadian
university who propose to engage, either in the United States
or the United Kingdom, in postgraduate studies in the field of
International or Industrial Relations,
It was the expressed hope of
Mr, King that these scholarships
would "afford to Canadian students in the future opportunities to broaden their outlook and
sympathies and contribute in
some measure to that understanding of the problems and
policies of Other countries which
is the basis of international
goodwill. Friday, February 28, 1958

By PETER KROSBY, Assistant Director
''This is just a note to inform
you that my son now has a
position in the East, so it is a
waste of postage to continue to
send him notices."
So wrote the mother of one
of our graduates recently to
the Alumni Office. Other concerned parents occasionally return Alumni Office mailing
pieces: addressed to their graduate offspring with irate letters,
tolling us to stop bothering
them with our dunning letters.
Common for such letters are
that they an- written wiliiout
our mailing pieces having been
opened or read. It is just taken
for granted that they must be
appeals for money, and would
wo piease st >p pestering lhe
boy or girl.
Common fur such letters is
also the fact, they are based
upon the not untypical conception 'dnat alumni associations
are purely the fund raising
agencies of universities, persistently sending appeals for
ever more money to university
This concept inn is also found
among those few students who
have heard of their alumni
association prior lo graduation,
and it o litem takes years of
work   to dispel it.
Of course, where there is
smoke tiie re is usually some
fire. Alumni associations do
go after money, but the fund
raising business is only one of
many alumni association activities and not at all the primary  one.
Let us take a look at our
own Alumni Association of
Primarily,    it    is   a    service
organization, as are most such
associations on the North
American continent.
It strives to serve former
U.B.C. students first of all,
and it strives to serve U.B.C,
the Alma Mater which all our
members have in common.
It is based on thq.belief that
a University has admission in
the community, not only tho
mission lo give the best possible education U> lhe fortunate
young men and women who
directly b e n e I' i 1 from its
courses, but a mission lo the
whole community.
To fulfill thai mission requires the participation of all

To far loo many people in
lhe Western world today, life
represents an existence of
privileges rather than one of
obligations. We did not ask
to be born, so the world owes
us a living.
In record weeks we have all

such an existence is not possible in Ihe long run. Lite is

graduates should be in a position to understand and to face
this challenge. We are our
brother's keeper. We are not
supposed to merely cut ourselves a slice of the melon—
we are obligated to see to it
that there will be sufficient
slices available for those that
conic afler us.
This philosophy applies directly to university graduates,
to U.B.C. graduates. We are
not born into a world lhat just
happened to be there, It was
marie, for good or for bad, by
our fathers. Whether our own
sons will bc born into a world
worth  living in  is up to us,
In Ihis day of lhe atom, of
space 1 ravel, the responsibilities resting upon university
graduates becomes particularly heavy. The standards of
higher education, and the numbers receiving higher education, becomes a matter of extreme priority.

over. The students were beaten.

kolos Udvardy, who had been
elected chairman of the Vancouver Hungarian Liberation
Committee, appealed to UBC
students for donations of blood,
clothing and money.
UBC students hesitated to
take a stand on the conflict between Hungary and Russia,
even to this extent. Students'
Council feared lest it set an
undesirable precedent, and instead urged the World University Service to take action.
The World University Service did take action.
On November 8, the same
day Immigration officials in
Ottawa had announced that
they would clear the way for
as many Hungarian refugees
as possible to come to Canada.
WUS President Lewis Perinbam announced that WUS had
joined forces with the Red
Cross in aiding refugees.
These events appeared to
turn the tide of student opinion
in favor of the Hungarian rebels.
Two weeks later a ceremony
honoring the efforts of the
Hungarian student patriots
was held in the UBC Armoury.
More than a thousand students
attended and contributed to a
fund to bring three Hungarian
students to study here in 1957-
The Hungarian tri-color flag
was displayed, campus musicians played the Hungarian
national anthem, and the Canadian ensign on the Main Mall
hung at half-mast all day.
Various faculty and student
leaders spoke publicly in
praise of the Hungarians. In
two days over $1800 had been
raised for the "Hungarian
Scholarship Fund."
Original fund had been intended to bring three Hungarian students directly to the
B.C. campus. However, since
the Federal Government agreed
to underwrite refugee transportation costs, WUS switched
its plans and decided to use the
money in aid of the twenty
students who were coming to
Vancouver anyway.
Where did all this money
come from? From the UBC
students themselves, to a large

The Future:
After the decision to bring 200 students from Sopron
University to UBC, refugees from the October, 1956 revolution, had been made (winter of '56-'57), Dean G. S. Allen of
UBC's Forestry Faculty prepared the following answers to
common questions about the eventual fate of the Sopron
students: • ---	
Will    the    Sopron    Forestry
School   be   absorbed   by   UBC?
"The School moved to UBC in
j September,   1957,   and  will   retain its identity for at least one
ence and training in the basic
sciences and in silviculture will
be very valuable."
Is the Sopron Group likely lo
remain here or go back to Hungary?  "Most if not all are immi-
year and possibly longer. Lee
j tures will be given in Hungarian , grating to Canada and hope to
! with a gradual change over to \ find Permanent homes here. Al-
1 English as faculty and students i though they aro coming to B.C,

to continue their training, it is
unlikely that they will all remain in this province.

University may be a country
club to some, a round of parties to others, and a place for
fun and games to a few — but
to the vast majority of students it is primarily a place of
Clubs,   parties    and    coffee
breaks are activities to be
worked into the schedule of
classes, labs and studying; not
to replace it.
With an average of twenty
hours in class per week, distributed between 8.30 a.m. and
5.30 p.m. Monday to Saturday,
as well as essays, labs, outside
reading, class assignments and
the occasional field trip, most
students who are conscientious
about their work don't find
themselves with too much
spare time.
Class attendance is not compulsory at UBC; few professors take attendance, and many
classes are far too large for
the professor even to notice
who is present and who isn't.
Calendar regulations state
that students are required to
attend at least 7h of their classes, or they will not be allowed
to write examinations, but this
rule is seldom, if ever, enforced .
But students who try wholesale skipping of classes usually find there's not much
point in writing the exams
The university recommends
two hours of outside study for
every hour in class. It's doubtful that most students follow
such a schedule purposely, at
least any later into the year
than October.
When total number of study
hours for the year are averaged, they usually work out to
somewhere    between    twenty
and thirty per week.
These hours are distributed I
between  the library, studying]
over coffee cups and in cars,
and sitting at a desk at home]

UBC has problems with its I
work,, some of which will be]
answered  by money from the

Classes at the moment are
too large, and poorly housed, j
Professors are underpaid anc
overworked; bothered by routine tasks such as marking
papers and keeping records,
which could easily be handled |
by secretaries without the benefit of Ph.D's.
These and problems likel
them can be solved by money |
— others can't.
In company with most other]
Canadian and many American!
Universities, UBC is facingl
problems of large enrollments!
and high failure rates.
Though most students pre-l
sently enrolled are capable ofl
attending university, and ap-l
predate the opportunity ofl
doing so, many fail each year.|
At the same time there are undoubtedly many people of uni-l
versity age who could andf
should be attending school, but|
doing so.
The problem, therefore, isl
to eliminate the lazy and in-|
competent students, and sup-l
ply the others with the means]
to attend university.
In the meantime the University, its staff and most of itsl
students are doing their bestl
to supply the province of Bri-|
tish Columbia, the nation andl
the world with well-trained,|
well-educated graduates.

still, the greatest pastime of our students is talking and relaxing.
You see them in the cafeteria, the Brock, the Campus Cupboard, Dean's and the Georgia, drinking coffee, coke and beer,
smoking endless cigarettes and talking.

Brock Hall is. the centre of this play. From this building
which is dedicated to the memory of Dean Walter Brock,
who was Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science from 1914
to 1935, radiate the extra-curricular activities. Lounges within
the building accommodate students who wish to chat with
friends, sleep, or play cards.
The Brock Extension, which was opened last fall, houses
I most of the clubs and committees.
Some of the large clubs, however, have their own huts, on
Ithe East Mall or behind the Brock.

Club members is situated in the University Auditorium, as is
the  Student  Christian  Movement's  clubroom.
Students may spend from one to well over 20 hours a

To those who feel the Musical Society production of Call
Me Madam should have been
reviewed here during the week
it ran in the auditorium, I can
only point out that, whatever
may be the functions of this
dubious craft of criticism, it is
NOT one of them to furnish
publicity for organizations so
obviously and grossly chauvinistic as Mussoc.
Call Me Madam is unfortunately one of the few musical
shows in existence which can
really be described as being
outdated, owing to the nature
of its central character. The
cutting of the show only pointed this up. Perhaps also because of this cutting, the plot
had little dramatic tension —
so little it scarcely hung together. For the same reason
the show lacked variation in
mood, the dominant one being
"problem-solving." This is fun
of course, but all night? Nothing but leather shorts, cheese
and problems?
But it was a commendable
production, oh the whole.    It
was warm and smooth and
fresh with adequate and unobtrusive sets and lighting. Mildred Franklin extracted the
laughs with both deftness and
taste. She sang with courage
and style. I am assured that
the dress she wore in the last
scene was "simply ghastly and
all wrong," but we can put this
down to the jealousy of worn-

Dean Moriarty is a no-good
young hoodlum but to Sal Paradise, who tells the story in
Jack Kerouac's novel "On the
Road," Moriarty is "a side-
burned hero of the snowy
West," "a new kind of American saint."
The time is 1948. Sal Paradise has been through the final
years of World War II, and has
been at college in New York
since then. He is bored. He
meets Dean, who is young and
full of zest for "kicks." And

There is Carlo Marx, a lone

keeps a daily record of everything that happens to him. In

in the evenings he sees "sad

"It's a bad war, Heine," says
the U boat captain to his No.
1. "A good war," he maintains, is a war in which man is
not subordinate to his machines. This feeling that man is
still the most important factor
in warfare is "nobility":
"The last one was the last
noble one," he complains. He
goes on to explain how, as a
midshipman, he served in the
early U boats. "I've served

torpedoes only 60'v effeciive

This was the Good War.

of war in films. There is either
the "we hates 'em because
they're bad" approach, or the
more restrained "we're just
doing a job" type. The latter
approach, although more palatable, is not quite true, for in
this epoch of total mobilization, propaganda plays the
most prominent part in motivating men to fight. "The Enemy
Below" steers a very satisfactory middle course between
these two conceptions.
Robert Milchum, al his gut-

the American D. E. captain

of Garibaldi Lake with Black
Tusk and Garibaldi Mountains
in the background on a 50-foot
Garibaldi is the site of VOC's
treks into the wilderness at
Christmas, after spring exams
and during the summer. One of
the projects of the club at present is to make the park better
known and more accessible to
relieve some of the congestion
on Grouse, Seymour and Holly-
burn mountains.
Object of the display, acocrd-
ing to club members, is to draw
attention to the fact that "some
of the finest alpine country in
the world" lies just two and
one-half hours from the Pacific
Great Eastern ^Railway. The
club is hoping to arouse interest in the area in an effort to
gain private or {government support in opening up the area to
hikers and skiers.
Art work for the Open

direction of Fran Magwood
and general construction was
handled by Don Lyon and
Stew Sherman.

Even Skin Divers Represented At UBC
Have you ever explored the
murky depths of the sea? Or
the underwater grottoes of this
Coast? Have you ever gone
spear-fishing or crab-catching?
These are fascinating activities of the AQUA-SOC, the
first skin-diving club ever to
be started on a Canadian campus which will present an underwater grotto in the Armouries during Open House.
Just about a year ago, in
January, 1957, two skin-diving
enthusiasts, Mike McAllister
and Bill Vogel, introduced this
exciting sport to the campus.
However, this was not merely
a haphazard attempt to start
up a new club with no apparent purpose or objective.
It was an attempt to promote
interest   and   enthusiasm     for
this sport, and to emphasize
the safety factor of it. Subsequently, with the co-operation
of the AMS and the UCC, the
Ubyssey and various professors, the club was formed.
The constitution, with special emphasis on safety, was
drawn up by a lawyer.
Starting in the fall, all po-
tenial skin-divers undergo a
rigorous training and instruction period at the Empire Pool,
learning the proper techniques
of diving and the necessary
safety precautions in much the
same manner as the Vancouver
Police Divers.
The beginners must write
and pass a skin-diving examination before they are permitted to go on their first jaunt to
Deep Cove where they don
their snorkels and fins in their
first   real   skin-diving   expedition.
The Club's membership is
60 and is continually expanding, as more and more people
come to realize the friendliness and spirit of the club,
and come to recognize the enjoyment of skin-diving. There
are still only a few who are
really qualified to dive with
aqua-lungs, an accomplishment that takes much practice
and entails passing the Class
III Test.
But once this technique of
diving with an Aqua-lung is
mastered, you dive to depths
of 30 to 100 feet for as long as
45 minutes, which allows one
to hunt for peculiar kinds of
fish and to search for relics of
the past.

Aglow in the search, of whot lies beyond,
For each one of us—a new world has dawned.
This world is fast-moving, faster than ever,
Preconceived notions all must now sever—
The ldo days are dead, we now have a new age
Indescribably complex, and which we can't gauge.

Destroying for all, the world vve once knew;
But opening instead—new wonders of life,
With the challenge of peace, removal of strife.
These times are chock full of events that are great,
And how they are used, will determine our fate;
There's much to be learned—of matter and mind,
And if we but seek, the answers we'll find.
The answer we seek—and seek them we must.
Depends on ourselves and in how much we trust,
In how much we trust those wanting to learn,
A duty we dare not be willing to spurn!

"You Gotta
Accentuate the Positron"
Our newspapers and nsaKuzincs kw-p our liouds spinning with
reports of computers, transducers, plutonium, satellites, serum*
and such. Oue of (Kc latest scientific marvels was the tracking
down of an invisible, untrarkable, elusive electronic particle
called a positron. (There are several billion of them in the head
of a pin, I'm told.;
This kind of research makes it clearer than ever that we
ordinary mortals are going fo be changing our ways fairly
abruptly as time goes by. Indeed, most of us are still stunned
by the changes that have taken place in our lifetimes. I can
remember the crystal set and the Spad (a single-enginod biplane
iii great vogue during World War One, son). The adjustments we
must make to the futii'-e arc1 enormous, so we must channul our
thinking along modern lines. We "gotta accentuate the posit r •:.."
That same thinking must be applied to our insurance problems,
too. Modern research has produced the NALAC Family flan
which provides economical coverage for your whole family —
even children not yet born, That kind of program is of paramount
importance to the family with its eye on the future. We would

picking bits of romper out of

Then there was the mother I
heard about, who pestered a
physics major with questions
about the Van de Graf generator, until finally, exasperated,
he asked her to hold a couple
of wires.
The waiting room of the
physics building has the oddest collection of hat racks.
The report from the student
front was far more serious. Two
artsmen, unaware of what
was going on, were watching
the goldfish in the library lawn '
pool. Poor chaps, they were
trampled by the horde of children out for fish.
AND DEEP IN the depths of
the library, a poor young librarian was 5-hul up between
lhe leaves of one of the older,
bigger tomes by three youngs-tors who nipped past the guard
at tho loan desk door.
The children went in disguised as a push-cart load of
books, which just goes to
show that one can become pretty clever without having stepped on the campus.

ready for you. The pretty girls
will keep you on the beaten

Inco Metals at work in Canada
RD(B® iljHjUiTsis1 helps you enjoy modern
electrical living
...but three Canadian homes out of five need up-to-date wiring
/nco has recently published a colourful and beautifully illustrated
32-page booklet about Canada's
important nickel industry, entitled
"The £xciting Story of Nickel", It
is written primarily for Canadian
youth by Alan King, but adults will
aho find il full of interesting information, lust write to Inco for a free
copy of this booklet.
Ov\'P<mi thc house you're living in is ten years old or
more. The original wiring system did its job well in those
days. But can this same wiring system handle the many
new appliances you have in 1958? Or in five or ten
years Irorn now?
Probably not. Even some new houses are not
properly wired to carry the electrical load you
need in your home. In fact, more than 3 out
of every 5 Canadian homes have inadequate or
out-of-date wiring.
If your home is one of these, it means that you're not
getting good service from your appliances. They're
operating too slowly ... using more electricity than they
should . . . and costing you more money. Lights are not
as bright as they ought to be. Electric motors operate
slowly. Fuses may be blowing.  These are sure signs oi'
inadequate wiring. And it could mean that you're playing
with fire . . . because overloaded wiring can help create
a lire hazard.
Make sure your home has a safe and up-to-date
wiring system. If you spot any of thc tell-tale
signs, call in an electrical contractor and have
him inspect the wiring. He can show you how
to enjoy thc safety and convenience of modern
electrical living.
Inco supplies copper to Canadian companies for the
manufacture of heavy duly power cable and the wiring
that goes into your home. And you use many other
products made from Inco ORC* Brand Copper every day.
For more than half of all the copper produced by Inco
is used right here in Canada. Another example of the way
Inco metals serve the Canadian industries that serve you.

In The Next
Hundred Years ...
UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA o century hence will be a great seat of learning,
perhaps one of the world's most eminent. We
can imagine the far-stretching buildings, the
magnificent equipment, a devoted faculty and
student body many times larger than today,
1953. But it would be Utopian to believe that
UBC would not have problems, and reasonable
to suggest that they would be very much what
they ore now . . . including the need for
greater public and governmental encouragement. Beyond this sketchy generalization the
mists of future time make prophecy difficult but
one thing seems fairly certain: There will be a

In this Centennial Year, your Government takes particular pride in joining with the Students and Alumni in
congratulating the University on the fine contribution
which it has made, and is continuing to make, to the development of the Province.
In increasing degree the University must assume
the major responsibility for educating our youth, not only
in our cultural traditions but in the science and technology
of this modern age. In this worthy task all of us should give
wholehearted support to our University.
Your Government is hopeful that the recent establishment of a Faculty of Education at the University will
do much to encourage able and dedicated young men and
women to enter the profession of teaching.
