Council okays
nuclear tests
Student Council Monday night
approved circulation on campus
of a petition protesting atmospheric nuclear weapons tests.
Graduate student Marnie Rogers proposed the petition, which
was approved unanimously by
council, and was appointed head
cf the committee to circulate it
in classrooms next week.
The petition will be sent to the
Soviet ambassador in Ottawa.
Miss Rogers said the petition
is not connected with any "ban-
the-bomb" movement and is non-
political in nature. Notification
of the circulation of the petition
will be sent to universities in
World University Service, she
The petition reads as follows:
"Whereas it is understood that
the testing of nuclear devices in
the atmosphere produces radioactive fallout detrimental to the
health of these and succeeding
Be it resolved that we the undersigned as individual students
of the University of British Columbia have registered our protest against nuclear testing."
Student council Monday night narrowly defeated a motion
censuring the method of presentation of the student-union building-winter sports arena referendum to students last spring.
The motion, proposed by Law
Undergraduate Society president Chas. MacLean, was defeated by a 10-7 majority, with
four abstentions.
MacLean told councillors he
is opposed to the "package deal"
presentation and said students
should have had an opportunity
to choose one or both of t h e
"The object of the referendum
should have been to find out
what the students really want,"
he said. "It should have been
put in as clear and specific a
manner as possible."
Maclean, who earlier said he
might call an extraordinary
general meeting if his motion of
censure was not passed, said:
"I am confident that I and
a group that I represent could
get the 600 signatures necessary
by the constitution to call a general meeting if we wish."
He declined to say if or when
he would attempt to call the
MacLean moved:
"That this council as a matter
of principle support its disapproval of the concept of the so-
called "package deal" as a method of , putting money referen-
dums to the students and more

the form of the referendum on

arena buildings put in March,
Vice president Eric Ricker
said passing of the motion would
amount to little more than censure of last year's council and
student body.
"I realize that it was not the
most democratic method of putting up the referendum. We
were acting in the welfare of
the university," Ricker said.
"The feeling in council was
that if two proposals were put
to the students, both would fail
and the students would have

ISC to beat
traffic in a tub
Rub-anJub-dub two intellectuals in tubs will ride to universe
ity for Clubs Day.
The students, members, af the
Intellectual Stunt Committee,
will travel from Cypress Park,
West Vancouver, to the university beach in two outrigger bathtubs powered by a 10 horsepower outboard motor, Wednesday morning.
Garry Troll, a spokesman for
the Intellectual Stunt Commit-
teee, said that the voyage across
what he called "Vz narrows" is
to publicize Clubs Day Thursday.
Officials said the outrigger-
tubs will race across "half narrows" while a car leaving Cypress Park at the same time will
attempt to beat it to the campus
by road and the Second Narrows Bridge.
The tubs, leaving at 11:30 a.m.
will be shepherded by two runabouts on their unique voyage.

lime to grow up
j       "Into the woods."
"But sir, I'm only 13."
"That's okay, I'm not superstitious."
Rolf Harris was lending his talents to the orientation of
almost 2,000 freshmen at the Frosh Reception Saturday night.
Harris typifies, even if to an extreme, the "new look" in
orientation programs at the University of B.C.
Until a cou$>le of years^ago,! freshmen were "introduced" to
the university in ttie'^ra4iti*Ml manner. They were dumped
into the lily-pond by groups of marauding engineers, forced to
dre$s in-ridiculoi^ cosfuifces and generally humiliated in every
possible way.
They deserved it.
With the advent of humanism, and the growing strength of
the freshmen class, the more physical aspects of orientation were
ironed from the program. A death or two during hazing at other
North American colleges undoubtedly speeded up the process.
The hazing was replaced by more organized mayhem. Freshmen now attend lectures, discussions and ceremonies to learn
what the campus is and where they fit into it.
This year freshmen were each sent a personal invitation to
the cairn ceremony as well as a copy of the new studnt handbook. Thy received both items before university started and the
effort seems to have paid off.
Thursday night about 700 gathered at the flood-lit cairn for
the first annual evening Cairn Ceremony. (Incidentally, however, there weren't too many faculty members at the service.
Perhaps someone forgot to send them their personal invitations.)
All the frosh mixers were well publicized and attended.
Couples had to be turned away at the door during the Saturday
night Reception. Both the entertainment and the music were
tops. We're glad to see someone finally decided against spending
exhorbitant amounts of money on a "name" band and spent a
smaller sum on a wandering Australian.
Rolf Harris provided entertainment and valuable "orientation" to most fo the freshmen at the dance.
Harris's worldly-wise witticisms and the more or less adult
atmosphere of the Reception surely must have shown the freshmen how to escape from, their high school world.
"University is a^place for adults. Adults make their own
rules of conduct. They form their own principles and observe
their own moral codes.
Orientation has produced an adult program for new adults.
We hope that it served its purpose.
Letters to the Editor
A little trip
News item: Student councillors spent Sunday touring student
union buildings at the University of Washington and Western
Washington College of Education.
A group of student councillors travelled on AMS funds to
Seattle and Bellingham Sunday to soak up student union building atmospher<\
The purp-o.se of the trip was to allow the people to learn
things that might help them in planning UBC's $800,000
It is our impression that most of the participants came back
with a jumble of incoherent expressions that would be less than
useless in plannin;.; a UBC building.
The most interesting thing that happened for most of the
travellers was discovering that there are five times as many
women as men at the' Bellingham college.
But we may be wrong. Only time will tell.
Facts, people, facts!
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I read with disgusted interest the "Ban the Bomb" letter
in Friday's Ubyssey.
Isn't it time we considered
cold hard facts instead of living in the world of mythology?
What are the facts? Well, of
course, volumes have been
written about this but here are
a few of the more pertinent details.
1. The USSR participated deceitfully in the disarmament
negotiations until such time as
it was politically and technically convenient to resume nuclear, testing. This was done in
spite of the fact that the Soviets already possess in Europe
an overwhelming military advantage not only in logistics
but also in direct ration man
to man.
2. The Soviets, while slandering the U.S., Great Britain and
France, as imperialists rule the
satellite countries with the
bloodied fist of totalitarianism.
At the same time the accused
western powers are providing
unheard of political and personal freedom for their former
dependencies, e.g., have we
heard Somilka or his henchmen speak in anger to the
Soviets as Vkrumah has to
Great Britain and the U.S.?
3. Khrushchev has publicly
stated to the world that communism will destroy the capitalist countries by one means or
4. The Moscow hoodlums
have time and again demon-
stated their willingness to
crush unmercifully any obstacle in their path. Always
provided, of course, they can
do it without fear of serious
reprisal. Hungary, Poland, East
Germany and Tibet are living
testimonies to this.
These are but a few of t h e
bitter truths of the cold war.
If one deals solely with fact
and the undistorted truth it is
impossible to relate the brutal
record of Soviet imperialism
to its often varied and meaningless professions of peaceful
If this be the case and every
adult Canadian has a moral
responsibility to himself and
his country to decide whether
or not it is, thus, surely only
serious  irresponsibility  or  ut
ter cowardice can prevent us
from steeling ourselves and
"I sincerely hope war does
not come, and to this I will do
all in my power to support our
chosen and freely elected representatives in par liament
avoid this holocaust. If, however, war does come I shall
fight without hesitation in order that personal liberty and
national responsibility may
triumph over the dark forces
of tvranny and totalitarianism."
Yours truly,
Science 3.
Tow stickers
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Certain inconsistencies in
regard to parking regulations
have come to my notice. While
it is emphatically stated that
all motor vehicles regularly
parked on campus (if only for
15 minutes) must have a parking sticker, I have noticed one
particular vehicle without such
identification, and the commissionaire checking on all
other cars failed to notice the
inconsistency on this one, although he saw the vehicle repeatedly.
Buster's Towing Trucks have
no sticker* The question' arises: What right has Buster to
be above the law enforced on
us? Why don't the trucks carry a sticker? Why aren't they
parked in staff lots? (Surely
we can't consider them qualified for a Faculty sticker?) Why
are they allowed to sit idle in
front Of Brock and other prominent places and make this
campus look like a police
state? Of course when patrolling they have to drive all over
the campus, but when they sit
idle they should do it at the
traffic office, rather than stand
like watch dogs in front of the
central spots on campus.
Incidentally, has any one of
our aspiring lawyers ever investigated whether Or not the
University has the legal right
to tow a car away? How about
some enlightenment on this
Yours truly,
Eng. 3.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The executive and staff of
UBC Radio would like to draw-
to the attention of students,
faculty, administration, and
general public several points
which were misleading in an •■
article published in the September 22 edition of The
1. The   statement,   "A   250!,
watt non-commercial radio station on campus is almost the ,
dream come true of the Radio-.
Society"   is,   to  say  the  least,
incorrect. To date we have only   reached   approval-in-princi-
ple from the Student Council,
leaving many steps yet to be
taken in gaining a licensed radio   station.   Many   of   these _
steps are more difficult to ach-*
ieve than the latter.
2. It should be pointed out
that the governmental body,
the Board of Broadcast Governors, will grant a licence only
to the University itself, not to
a student organization (as
such). v
3. This facility, if achieved,
would have as its aim the portrayal of campus life and activity to listeners, rather than
the "education of the general .
4. Assuming attainment of
all other (many not considered '
here) approbations, licences,r
and so forth, there remains
major consideration by the
Federal Communications De-
partment^, Board of Broadcast
Governors, of final licencing.   „
The UBC Radio Society has
confidence in its ability, and
that of relevant aid, to ultimately achieve these aims.
This is merely to point out
that many steps and ratifications remain to be achieved.

Bennett a turncoat
says Davie Fulton
Premier Bennett has distorted cost figures of the Columbia
power project for his own purposes charged Federal Justice
Minister Davie Fulton in a noon hour speech Friday,
said    consutants    for
Fulton said consutants
ihe project have stated the cost
of local power from the Colum-
lumbia would be about half
the figure stated by Bennett in
a recent speech.
"The  various  attacks  on  the
Columbia River  Treaty display
neither   consistency   with   each
other nor logic based on fact in
/themselves-,"  he  said.
Fulton charged Bennett with
doing an about face in attacking features of the treaty which
-were insisted upon by his own
Cabinet Ministers.
"I suppose anyone is entitled
to change his mind, provided it
is in good conscience, but there
c is no conscience here at all," he
"Knowing now what we are
dealing with, it would have been
prudent to have something legal-
. . . attacks Bennett
ly binding with the British Columbia government," Fulton
"The Premier must surely
realize in what position his
present stand places his fellow
citizens in the eyes of the world,
but that seems to have made no
difference to him," Fulton added.
"I leave it to you to make
your own decision as to the motives and purposes of a man
who, having insisted upon the
position that should be taken in
negotiations, now attacks the
Federal Government by repudiating the very position which
he insisted upon throughout the
whole  negotiations."
Fulton declined to define
Bennett's "motives and purposes" in a question period later.
Fulton said major advantages
of the Columbia River project
are diversification of the province's economy, bringing greater job stability, and future prosperity and cheaper power.
He attacked a suggestion that
Canada sell its share of t h e
downsteram benefits outright to
the United States, a policy he
termed "flooding our valleys to
provide power for the Americans."
'"All the advantages that flow
from an adequate supply of
cheap power will be denied the
province, the economy, the
workmen, and the consumer,"
he added.
"Ottawa is not forcing British Columbia to do anything.
The decision as to the development of this river is entirely that
of Premier Bennett and his government," he said.
"So is the responsibility for
the  loss that will  occur  if the
Columbia does not go ahead."

UBC stays despite
NFCUS exodus
UBC will not follow the example of Montreal's Sir George
Williams University by withdrawing from the National Federation of Canadian University
Robin Farquhar of the UBC
NFCUS branch said the national group is working quite satisfactorily at the University.
Sir George students announced last week they were withdrawing from NFCUS because
it lacked a strong international
policy. The school said it will
seek to build a strong provincial organization.
Farquhar said too much has
been expected of NFCUS at the
international level.
He said he could not see the
reasoning behind withdrawal of
Sir George.
"They are withdrawing over
international policies in favor
of a provincial organization," he
said. "How can an organization
be international and provincial
at once?"

holds tight on purse
OTTAWA (CUP) — Another
campus is having its financial
difficulties with the National
Federation oi Canadian University Students. The University of
Ottawa has ordered that its delegates to the NFCUS Congress
in Kingston not make any financial commitments.
The directive emerged out of
last Thursdays night's council
meeting. The problem arose out
of a shortage of money brought
on by the refusal of the University of Ottawa administration to
grant a six per cent increase in
fees for this year. The university
allowed only a three per cent
Gilles Grenier, president of

Education is international
Now a federal responsibility
President, University of B.C.
(From the UBC Alumni Chronicle)
It is frequently claimed that
"education" is a "provincial
matter". In our Constitution,
the BNA Act, it is provided
that education is within the
jurisdiction of the provinces. At
the recent meeting of attorney-
generals of the provinces to
consider ways and means of
amending our constitution, the
only positive statement issued
seems to have been that the
section in the BNA Act dealing
with education could not be
amended without the consent of
all the provinces.
Insofar as it has reference to
schools and to education at the
school level, I feel it is probably a sound arrangement and
I am prepared to approve it.
But I suggest that for a few
minutes we forget about "law"
and look at "facts".
* *       *
Education in its broad  and
inclusive sense is concerned
with ideas and concepts and
"things of the mind". It is also
part of the training and the
discipline of the emotions. It is
based on knowledge and understanding and information. It
conditions and -shapes individuals, groups, nations, and the
whole world of men and women of which we in Canada
form a part. There was, no
doubt, a time in history when
communication was, to all intents and purposes, non-existent, in which it was possible to
confine education and its effects to a limited geographical
* *       *
It is still possible, through the
agencies of language, culture,
or an ideology, to restrict the
influence of education and to
channel it in a given and desired direction.
As illustrations: I suspect
that the masses of the Chinese
and Russian people do not
know too much about Canada
and Canadians or about the
other countries and peoples of
the West. I am sure that many
of the inhabitants of the Congo
are ignorant of everything beyond their tribal borders..I suspect that many dedicated communists have closed their
"hearts" and minds to our virtues and their own defects —
and both do exist—and I am
certain that in our democracies,
Canada, the United States, Britain, and France, there are
many ignorant and emotionally
undisciplined people.
Two or three centuries ago,
or even as late as 1900, this restricting and confining of
knowledge may have been inescapable or even acceptable.
But today, in the kind of world
we live in; it is just not good
enough nor can it be allowed
to continue if we are to survive
• on this earth.
*       *       *
None of this implies or suggests that I like conformity and
uniformity, or believe that it is
inevitable or necessary. To the
contrary, I believe most strongly in variety and difference
within a nation and between
and among individuals provided that it is based upon the
reedom of the individual and
upon his access to all the
knowledge and information and
wisdom available anywhere
and everywhere.
For the rest of the time I
would like to put Canada and
Canadian education into this
world picture. Obviously, we
must, within the limits of the
physically and financially possible, give all of our citizens the
best and the most education
they can benefit from. If we
do not do this, there will be no
place for us in this rapidly
changing world.
* *       *
We have a special interest in
and concern for university or
higher education, and that
problem is among other things,
one of expanding enrolments,
more buildings and equipment,
more teachers and directors of
research, and a great deal more
money. Can I give you one or
two statistics. The first — between 1940 and 1950, the college age group in Canada increased by about 25,000. In the
decade between 1960 and 1970
— our present decade — it will
increase by 500,000.
* *       *
In the period 1940-1950,
about 8 per cent of the college
age group were in colleges and
universities. It is estimated that
some 33 per cent of this age
group have the ability to benefit from higher education. It is
also stated that in the USSR,
about 19 per cent are given
higher education, in the United
States over 20 per cent. In the
latter country, the percentage
is rising and, because of social
pressures, may well go above
40 per cent. Our present (1960-
61) percentage in Canada is
11 per cent.
We can, in fact must, if
monies are not forthcoming,
deny higher education to many
and limit our enrolment rigorously to the "brains", the "geniuses", and the very high I.Q.'s.
Or we can spend more money
on higher education. As I have
stated above, education is a provincial matter, and the governments and legislatures of the
provinces must accept the basic
responsibility for it. This means,
among other things, that they,
the governments and legislatures, must find much of the
money required to support all
education, including our universities.
But, in addition, I suggest
that because of the nature of
higher education and of society
and the world we live in, much
of the money for our universities should and must come from
the government and parliament
of Canada.
*       *       *
Higher education in most of
its aspects has always been and
is national and international in
character ahd content. Students
and teachers have traditionally
wandered about the world they
knew in search of knowledge,
experience and information, or
to sit at the feet of great teachers. This is true of Canada.
We at UBC have students
from every province and most
of the countries of the world.
Our graduates go off to all
parts of Canada and to all parts
of the world, and what is true
of UBC is true of practically
all Canadian universities. This
kind of thing is not the proper
or normal responsibility of a
provincial or municipal govern
ment. The future of our country, Canada, as I have said (as
well as our provinces) depends
upon research in science and in
agriculture, forestry, fisheries,
and in medicine, and I would
hope in the area of human relations.
* *       *
In all of these fields as well
as in defence, our federal government is presently participating, through the National Re- •
search Council, the Defence Research Board, various depart-
ments of government, and
through the Canada Council.
The federal government over
many years has been, is, and
must continue to be in the business of higher education in its
broad and varied and appropriate aspects, in an important^
* *       *
The direct per capita grants
given by the government of
Canada to the universities have
been free and without "strings".
The only influence they have
had is to improve the quality of
the work done, to change the
emphasis as between science
and the humanities, and probably to encourage the creation
of new institutions.
Because much of the work
done by universities is not the
concern of the provinces, I do
not believe the provinces would
give their universities enough
or uncontrolled support. Highways, rather than Colombo
plans, are the proper and understandable interest and concern of the provinces.
It is because of reasons like
these that I claim and continue
to claim that, if Canada is to
provide for the educational
needs of its people and to maintain its place in a changing
world, the government of Canada and the governments of the
provinces will have to give
more money to the universities.
Lack ot money costing Canada top grad students
T he following is an
abridged version of Dr. Mac-
Kenzie's annual report to the
province on the affairs of lhe
university.   It originally  appeared' in UBC Reports.
Graduate training on a formal
basis, with organized courses of
study and requiring the preparation   of  an   original   thesis
based on independent research
and investigation,  is of  fairly
recent origin in Canada. In the
past it was possible for a student,   once  his  undergraduate
training was finished, to go directly  into  a  chosen   field   of
activity without further study.
If  the   career  he   chose   involved the  application of the
theoretical knowledge he gained at the university to practical
problems of a technical or scientific nature, he generally
learned  such  applications
through association with others
in his profession.
* * *
But the rapid expansion of
knowledge in every field of
human inquiry has made it essential to specialize, to introduce additional disciplines, to
discover new techniques and
processes which are required
by the ever-changing needs of
the society and the world in
which we live.
Our graduate programme
has since grown rapidly and effectively, but between 1945 and
1950 we were obliged to advise
many of the best young men
and women to go to the great
graduate schools in the United
States and Britain and to some
of the European universities.
*       *       *
No one was happy about this
arrangement. While it is true
that some of our best graduates
should always be encouraged to
go abroad to enrich their educational experiences, Canadians
conscious of the growing importance of our nation in world
affairs and proud of the international reputation we have
earned for moderation and common sense, felt that Canada
was setting aside and neglecting many of its real responsibilities in the field of higher
In particular we were concerned that, although it was
desirable that some of our
young men and women should
go to the United States for further training, it was a serious
and discouraging drain on our
human resources for many of
them did not come back.
Moreover, it was felt that
Canadians, while willing and
able to support university work
at the undergraduate level,
were in reality permitting tax
payers of another country to
provide expensive graduate
In short, as a nation, we were
not accepting our full responsibility for the proper education
of our citizens^ and if the trend
continued, Canada would progressively lose many of its best
brains and in the process lose
its creativeness and independence.
Many of those who went
abroad did not return to make
the contribution to Canada they
ought to have made and which
we could reasonably expect of
them. One of my colleagues, decrying this tendency, put the
matter in its simplest and most
direct terms: "We are. doing
with our human resources what
we once did with the products
of our forests: sending them off
to be finished in the United
* -k k
The most essential need at
this university now and for the
next few decades will be the
creation of graduate and professional schools second to none
in Canada or in the United
As the world of knowledge
becomes more complex, as techniques become more compli-
c a t e d , as mechanization and
automation change the way we
work and live and play, so the
demands for the highly trained
continue to grow. But it is not
enough to foster growth of
scientific studies. We must, at
the same time, ensure that the
humane studies continue to develop in parallel and at the
same rate.
*       *       *
The dual m i s si o n o f the
scholar, that of teaching and research, cannot' properly be accomplished unless he is actively
and diligently engaged in working with students beyond the
undegraduate level.
But great graduate centres,
where men and women are
concerned with problems o n
the very frontiers of knowledge, are not built without very
substantial sums of money, nor
is it possible to attract scholars
unless they can be assured that
the conditions under which
they will work are as good as
or better than they can find
The distinguished professor
is the most mobile of persons,
for he can teach and investigate wherever he wishes. And
wherever he goes he will in
turn draw students to him. If
it is important to attract distinguished scholars, it is equally important, if we are to build
a great graduate school, to
draw able students to us, not
only   from   Canada   but   from    -
other countries too.
In this context I believe Canadian students to be as well
endowed   intellectually   as   *.
young people anywhere in the
world.   The   distinguished  records   of   those   who   complete
their undergraduate studies at
the  University  of  British  Columbia and then go on to further  work  elsewhere  is evidence that, given the opportun-   ....
ity and environment,  our students are second to none.
*       *       *
But we must work hard and
conscientiously to create the
environment which will attract
and hold our students. In particular, we must do whatever
we can to persuade the public
and government that support is .-
required not only for the teaching functions of the university
but also for research. ...
At the moment we cannot
provide working space for all
the graduate students who must
carry on laboratory research as
part of their training. At a time
when the need is to attract
more doctoral candidates in
physics and chemistry we are
actually turning them away.
This is a long-range problem
and frankly, I cannot see any
immediate solution to it. Tuesday, September 26,   1961

UBC fish
museum in
a pickle
Rows of bottles of pickled
fish are putting the University
on the map with scientists of
the world.
The bottles contain more than
100,000 sea specimens pickled in
alcohol and constitute the largest fish museum in North America.
"Just as a lawyer might go to
the courthouse to refer to a precedent, the scientist goes to the
fish museum to refer to a fish,"
says Dr. C. C. Lindsey, curator
of the museum.
"Scientists • come to the fish
museum from all parts of the
world to study the fish and help
them in the maintainepce and
control of their local fish populations," said Dr. Lindsey.
Some of the rarer specimens
have not even been identified
as to origin and family and remain a mystery, he said.
The fish museum enables the
student of evolution to study
how a certain species or type of
animal came into being, when,
and why-
Freshly caught specimens are
scrubbed, then classified as to
weight, height, species, and region, Dr. Lindsey said.
Modern technological methods
have enabled the fish museum
people to make many advances
in the various biological fields,
he said.
The use of the X-ray has made
it possible for man to peer into
the bodies of rare fish without
marring their external features.
A special chemical which
causes the flesh to become transparent aids in the study of bone
structure,  Dr.  Lindsey said.
According to Dr. Lindsey, the
fish museum has been a successful project and has already outgrown  its  present  quarters.

succeeded to pass the strict university entrance exams, he can
more or less relax," said Watney.
"Once the faculty and option
have been selected, the courses
are prescribed in such a way that
little room is left for choice."
Requirements are not particularly demanding, and the examinations are far less stringent
than at UBC, he said. The failure
rate at Keio is only 2 per cent.

Japanese universities have less academic spirit than their
Canadian counterparts, says a student who spent two months
at Keio University this summer.
Jerry Watney, Arts 4, said the

to get a degree and more profitable employment.

with four other UBC students as
part of an annual Keio-UBC exchange program. Five Japanese
students spent the summer studying here.
men  and  discourages  academic
ambitiousness," he said.
He found Japanese students
extremely active in politics. "As
a result of their nightmarish
war experience, they have a profound desire for peace. This is
the basic reason for their neutralist outlook toward international affairs," he said. Essentially, there is" no anti-Americanism, he.said.
The majority believes that socialism is the answer to their
internal problems, he said.
Their approach to socialism is
much clearer and more scientific
than that of the North American
student, he added.
The Western influence in Japan is quite obvious, he said, but
instead of supplanting the old
Japanese traditions, the two cultures co-exist comfortably.
After spending the day in his
office, dressed in a Western-style
business suit, the employee usually comes home, changes into a
kimono and devotes the evening
to the gracious Japanese way of
living, Watney said.

was announced the touchdown
was no good.
Time had run out before Wickland had scored, explained the
Gnup said no whistle had
blown before the play had started, but added he had no complaint.
"Under American rules," said
Gnup, "the official timer overrules the referee."
Birds played well enough to
win. Vikings scored two first-

threatened again until those last
minutes of the game,
They scored on pass plays of
36 and 60 yards. UBC's only major came in the third quarter
when quarterback Barry Carkner marched the Birds down the

I read in Maclean's where the manufacturers of badminton
shuttlecocks are getting goosepimmles because they can't find
-enough geese to make their birds.
Somehow or other, all the geese have flown the coop, and
the shuttlecock-makers are stymied. It seems only two feathers
from each goose wing are suitable for making badminton birds.
They're called schragfahnen, and their barbs are the only perfectly-balanced ones on the whole goose.
The manufacturers need some 20 million schragfahnen this
year, and so far, they've managed to obtain only a third of their
It's been getting harder every year to round up our annual
supply," moaned one of the manufacturers, L. A. Moore, the man
from Campbell. He has several of his men combing the world for
schragfahnen, and with not too much success, at that. (Looking for
goose quills sounds like an obvious case of featherbedding to me.)
The bulk of past year's supples have come from behind the
Iron Curtain. Except that now, the Commies have decided badminton birds have some strategic importance, and have refused to
sell their schragfahnen to Western countries.
An embargo on badminton birds, yet.
''Russia has millions of 'em," said Moore. "But they've jacked
the price up so high on the few feathers they give us, that we're
having to use a third, and unbalanced, quill from the goose wing."
In the non-Communist countries and Asia, Moore thinks the
schragfahnen has been caused by the black market. "When people
kill geese for the black market, they don't leave    any feathers
lying around as evidence," groaned the man from Campbell.
Sounds like your geese have been cooked, Moore.
^ ?£. ^
Not only have the Russians got more H-bombs, they've got
more goosefeathers. All we've got are goosepimples. Maybe they're
secretly testing a new shuttlecock, capable of travelling at supersonic speeds. Maybe they're making a "dirty" bird, capable of
shedding radioactive fallout on the enemy. Sufferin' schragfahnen,
-Moore, these Commies are running a scandalous racquet. No birds
<—no badminton. Maybe they'll take the next Olympic badminton
Our players, forced to use inferior goose feathers, or maybe
even (gasp) chicken • feathers, will never be what they used to be.
Imagine if this sort of catastrophe were to beset any of our
other North American sports. If all horses were suddenly to become extinct, think of what would happen to baseball and the
World Series and Babe Ruth's record (to say nothing of TV Westerns)? No "horsehide" — no baseball.
* * *
Think of the domestic repercussions. They would have to
make the baseballs out of rubber, or plastic, Or sawdust.
If Roger Maris or Sammy Iron or somebody were to rap 88
home runs with a lacrosse ball, howf would they straighten out the
record books? Would Ruth's record stand?
Or what if all the pigs in the, world suddenly passed away?
What would happen to football and its pigskin To Hush Puppies?
Or to bacon and eggs?
If cows were to disappear, what would we do for soccer and
rugby balls? For the Jersey Islands and Chocolate, Pleasant-Tasting Milko?
What if all the world's sheep went .to the happy hunting
grounds? What about University diplomas and shag sweaters?
What would we count to go to sleep? Busters trucks?
•T* 3f» •£
Anyway, Moore, best of luck with your schragfahnen, or
whatever they are. If you find a bumper crop of geese somewhere,
it would certainly be a feather in your cap. Manwhile, we capitalist badminton players are at the mercy of Mr. Khrushchev. I raise
my shoe in protest!
