No Time, Says Bonner
Dr. Hinke Wins
New Scholarship
Dr. Joseph Anthony Hinke
has! added a $3Q,000 research
grant to the long list of scholarships and awards he has won
since entering the UBC Faculty;
of Medicine. The $30,000 John
and Mary Markle Foundation
Scholarship in Medical Science,
awarded over a five year period,
was set up to give young teachers and investigators enough financial help early in their
careers to enable them to resist
the temptation of highly paid
positions  in  industry.
Among the scholarships Dr.
Hinke won before his graduation here in 1957 were the Vancouver Women's Canadian
Scholarship, the Lederle Student Research Fellowship and
the Nemetz Scholarship for the
graduate with the most aptitude
for research. Ete interned at the
Royal Vic Hospital in Montreal
and is at present a research assistant; at the Marine Biological
Research Station in Plymouth,
England, on a Life Insurance
Medical Research Fellowship
from the University of London.
He is doing neural research on
squid as part of his investigation
of hypertension.. Since 1955 he
has published eight scientific
papers in collaboration with
This July he will return to
Vancouver as an Assistant Professor of Anatomy at U.B.C. He
will use the Markle Foundation
Scholarship for research facilities to continue his work on
hypertension and will also teach
in the department of Anatomy.
B.C.'s Attorney-General Robert Bonner refused Tuesday to
come to campus to speak to students on matching grants, endowment and development, and
other matters of interest to UBC
Bonner and the other two
MLA's representing the Point
Grey Electoral District were invited to the campus by the re
cently formed UBC Voters' Association. No reply has as yet
been received from Socred
MLA's   Brown   and  Bate.
Mr. Bonner, who was asked to
pick a speaking date to fit his
schedule, said he could not do so.
"Because or the Session of the
Legislature and of commitments
during the latter part of March
which include the necessity of
being in Ottawa for Columbia
River policy discussions."
Students of Fort Camp, Acadia
and the Men's Residences have
voted 95% against segregation
of the residences by sex.
This statement was made to
the Ubyssey, tfy Eric Ricker,
AMS Second Member and Fort
Campr Vice-President, after a
poll was taken there under AMS
The move followed the formation of a committee within the
Board of Governors whose purpose is to investigate the possibility of applying sex segregation in the permanent residences.
The committee was fprmed
following complaints by some
of the co-eds' mothers that the
integration of men and women
students in the residence did not
create the right social atmosphere for the women students.
The committee would attempt
to  convert Acadia Camp to a

Council not later than 2:30
residence strictly for men students while Fort Camp would be
restricted to womeri.!
The AMS has found that the
students at the residences are
solidly against such a move.
Many feel that the present situation creates a better social atmosphere for both men and
women. Men are forced to act
in a more courteous manner in
the presence of women. The
women get the opportunity to
meet men for social occasions.
Furthermore, senior students at
the residences, aid younger undergraduates of both sexes, both
academically and socially.
The AMS feels that the alteration necessary to rennoVate
Fort Camp to needs of women
students woud be a waste of
money, considering' the necessity of constructing permanent
On the complaint of the
mothers concerning the social
atmosphere, Ricker ■ said, -' 'The
purpose of a university is primarily to get an academic education—-not an excessive social
education; this is something that
is taught in the home."
Students Will have the opportunity to vote on the question
at the Spring General Meeting
on March 16. It is hoped that
at that time the campus will be
able to give its opinion on
whether it desires segregation
by sex at the residences or not.
Mr. Bonner said that he was
at present doing some research
on the subject of public expenditures for education with a view
to publishing an informal statement on the matter. He asked
that the Voters' Association set
out the questions they have in
mind, "so that the points involved in them could be fully

this monograph could be mailed

unable to set "a speaking date
which is likely to be useful to
you in view of the imminence
of  exams."
Officials of the UBC Voters'
Association expressed disappointment in hearing of Mr. Bonner's
refusal to set a speaking date.
They feel that if'he had; really
been concerned with the interests of the students he would
have been able to set aside a
noonthour to speak to the students, possibe while in transit
to Ottawa.
Alan Rimmer, whose soap-box
address originally proposed the
idea sponsored by the Voter's
Association, said that Mr. Bonner's reply to the Association's
invitation seemed to be avoiding the issue.
"If we follow his suggestion
and restrict our actions to making suggestions for his monograph," said-Rimmer, "we wilj
not have a ehanee-'to hear him
this term. In the event of an
election this" summer we would
hot have time to get a candidate" ,.■

the Association was composed
only of UBC students, interested
voters from the Point Grey riding would be invited to come
to the campus if the Association
was successful in getting one of
the rding's representatives to
come   and speak. \\
He said that the group did
not want to develop into a minority or lobby group, and was
interested in the problems of
the riding as a whole as well as
the specific student problems

Rumors have it that some 23
medical students and nurses
have started a bootlegging ring,
in the area close to the University gates.
In an interview with this
paper, second year med student
Curt Latham denied the rumor,
but suggested it might have originated from the plot of the 1960
"Medical Skit.
Mr. Latham added that the
Skit is being brought to the
campus auditorium Friday, along
with intricate bootlegging, apparatus.
Mr. Latham does not live in
the area close to the University
gates, but he said that several
of his medical friends do, in
spite of the West Point Grey
Ratepayers Association.
Proceeds from the Medical
Skit will go towards a bursary
fund for less enterprising and
more law-abiding med students
than those featured in the Faculty's production. -;-'•'"■.-J

In one of the few times that

MLA Robert Bonner, Attorney General of this province
•dnd Sbeial Credit representativef6r the West Point Grey Constituency, has refused to come" to this campus and tell some of
his constituents how things are goiftg in the Province's capital.

which his potential sponsors, the UBC Voter's Association, is

He will have to pass through this city on his way east at
stay rate, and if he wished, he could arrange his schedule to
include a stopover at noon on this campus.
He wrote a very nice letter to the UBC Voter's Association
explaining why he cannot come".
Now the Association is waiting for replies from the other
two Social Credit MLA's from the West Point Grey Constituency. If they follow the party line—as laid down by the
Attorney General—and refuse to face campus voters, the Association will have no information on which to base their future
decisions'save that of the results of these three candidates' governmental endeavours.
It is the slimness of these results which originally prompted the formatiori of the Assoclatibn.
Mr. Alan Rimmer got up on a soap box and proposed to
the campus that UBC Students run their own candidate in the
Provincial Elections. There was a response. The UBC Voter's
Association was formed.
The Association tried to get the Socred's representing
Point Grey out here to defend their work in Victoria and
answer questions regarding University finances. The most important of these representatives has refused to come.
You have be'en rejected, UBC Vdter's Association!
Now is the time to do sorriethirig about it.

The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
wVfi'nd it hard to equate the
so-called journalistic responsibility attached to your position
with the outright lies you publish on your editorial page under the heading "letters", without an explanatory note.
As you full well know, and
as you have' previously printed
in your paper, the showing of
"Anna Christie" had nothing
to do with the Film Society.
This film was shown by John
Mercer and Dick Drysdale as a
private venture. These gentlemen retained all the profits,
which were in excess of five
hundred dollars ($500) and they
have never provided anyone
with an accounting of their disposal.
Th% film "Huckleberry Finn"
was brought from Toronto at
threff times the normal rental
as it had been withdrawn from
cileuiaiion ajftfd • we5 had; to specially negotiate* for it. The print
is in decent'shape and is being
shown solely for the benefit of
unenlightened* EWglish 100 student such as Mr1. Powell.' We
have expected to lose money in
it frorri the first.

The' Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I would like to bring to the
attention of the authorities and
the honest students of this University, the sorry state of affairs that exist on our campus.
While I was doing a Lab. in
the new Chemistry building on
Wednesday last, I left a U.B.C.
jacket, of which I was very
proud, on the rack outside the
lab-room only to find at the
end of the • period that it was
missing. One could hardly
think it was carried away in
error as it was the only one of
its kind there on that particular
day. It was a case of deliberate
If this was the only occurence of that nature then it
might have been over-looked,
but the same thing happened
at the beginning of the fall
term when I went to reclaim a
suit-casa left in one of the storerooms at Acadia Camp for the
summer. That too, was stolen.
It seems a shame that in a
country like this, so endowed
with riches, and a University
where the future leaders of the
nation are educated and trained, one should find such petty
forms of vandalism. Some measures should be taken to curtail the activities of these petty
thieves who hide within the
walls of our university or pretty soon no one will be ablfe to
wear a U.B.C. jdbket with pride
but bow his head in shame.

The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Some months ago an editorial appeared in the Ubyssey,
obviously written by an arts-
man, denouncing the- Faculty
of Applied Science. As I recall,
the individual's argument was
to the effect that the U.B.C.
campus should not be cluttered
up with such an unbelonging
scientifically minded faculty,
but rather should be operated
as an institution of the arts—
in particular, the Fine Arts. I
also recall that the submitted
of the editorial is majoring in
music, philosophy, and mathematics. Such a fine selection.
From his choices of music and
philbsophy is derived my conclusion that he is an artsman.
But when I look at mathematics I wonder was this choice
sincere, or was it chosen merely to cover up his appearance
of a fanatical, long-haired arts-
man that the other two majors
make him out to be. Either supposition being the case, it seems
to me that his grounds for condemning the redstarts is entirely without Support—for mathematics is a science.
Not only did the appearance
of this editorial tend to annoy
me, but I' was thoroughly
amazed at the number of students who.are. of the opinion
that the Engineers are nothing
more1 thari a heathen, barbarous, untefineef hoard of ani-
mMe. dbvlbusiy the bulk of the
student body does not appreciate the tremendous contribution that the Engifleers make
to our campus. Their stiff rivalry in inter-faculty competitions
stimulates much progress to-,
wards good causes. It must be
agreed that much amusement
is provided on occasional noon
hours when the Engineers compete against #the Aggies for
some championship in a physical competition. Being a large
faculty, they excel in unselfish
sporisbrsriip (as ah example, the
recent blood drive) and donate
much time and effort to promote these worthy undertakings. Think of the tyranny that
would rule the campus were it
not for the Engineers who
serve as an effective check
against such arrogant types as
Foresters and Aggies.
Last fall at the general assembly, the Engineers offered
a sound leadership (something
that is urgently needed on this
campus) by introducing a bill
which lay before us the chance
to obtain this sincere and experienced guidance. And how
did the campus respond to such
a generous offer? It showed its
ungrateful indifference by failing to turn out in adequate
strength for a quorum, thus, no
vote was taken on the bill and
the campus populance foolishly
lost a chance in a lifetime.
However, being of kind heart
and good nature, no doubt the
Engineers, respectable and unselfish, will again offer their
service to this undeserving
campus by introducing a similar' bill next year.
Ah, yes; how that deserving
faculty has been so wronged!
Yet someday perhaps the student body will awaken and
realize What a drab and lifeless5 campus this U.B.C. Would
be, were it not for the fiery
redshirted followers of Lady
Godiva—the Engineers.

The  Editor,

Dear Sir:
I learned with great interest
that the Extension Department
sponsors lectures and seminars
with panel discussions about
the Soviet Union. However, I
was very much embarrassed
that there is a considerably
high fee for those who wish to
attend this meeting.
Becoming expert during several years in the genuine Soviet
ideology I would suggest to
cancel the fees butt at the
same time to make the seminars more efficient I would
set some prerequisits for those
who wish to enroll.
I suggest as prerequisites:
The Short History of the Communist (Bolshevik) Party, 1946
edition, in original Russian),
the same 1957 edition published in English by the Foreign
Relations Institute (Moscow),
Lenin: One Step Ahead Two
Steps Backward (original),
Stafm? Report About the Agrarian Reform', talk befpre the
Party representatives 1938, and
finally Orwell: 1948? Milchener
The Bridge at Aridau, Orwell:
Animal Farm.
But ... I am a little bit
suspicious that a few if any of
the otherwise excellent speakers -had ever read ALL tehse
basic prerequisites.
Yours Truly,
J.  Smith, Arts II.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
"If there is one more tree
in the world than there are
leaves on one tree, there must
be two or more trees with an
equal number of leaves."
Let the most leaves a tree
can have be n-I. Then the number of trees in the world is n.
Let the first tree have 1 leaf;
the second, 2; . . . the n-lth,
n-1 leaves. The n'th tree cannot have n leaves, but it can
have no leaves at all.
This fits the restrictions of
the statement above, but it also
asigns an allowed number of
leaves to each tree such that no
two trees have an equal number of leaves. Hence the statement made last Friday and
quoted above is WRONG!
In order to make this correct,
one would have to add one
more tree, or not allow any
tree to have no leaves at all.

The Students' Council of 1959-60 bowed out of office in typicav
style Monday night.
They spent eight hours deliberating soberly over the weight?
problems ot student government. They approved 16 sets of minutes,
most of them without much discussion, and received four reports.
It is probable that most of the Councillors are extremely glad
to be going out of office. From now on they will be subjected t&
no nerve-wracking arguments, no time-consuming committee meetings and no sleep-stealing Monday night marathons.
Pity the poor councillors who do not retire. Treasurer, Dave
Edgar; First Member, John Goodwin, and Co-ordinator, Russ Brink
will be serving the students as President, Vice-President and Coordinator, respectively next year.
. They must spend another year with their noses to the grindstone shivering under the blast of withering criticism from the
Last week, Students' Court found five AMS members guilty
of gambling in the Brock and fined them five dollars each.
MAA President, Ian Stewart, who observed the proceedings,
said Monday night that "the procedure of the Students' Court
violated all the rules of natural justice." Since Stewart is a law
student, we must give some credence to his remark.
"They did well for the machinery they have," he said. He
feels that the present set-up is woefully inadequate. "If we expect
to maintain a high standard of discipline, we must impress the
students with the efficacy and efficiency of our system," he said.
This observer hopes that the report of the Disciplinary Revision contains the answer.
The report was received by Council Monday night Whether or
not its recommendations will solve the problem, it is difficult to
say. It is important, however, that Council give these recommendations serious consideration, and that they implement them and
experiment with them wherever possible.
This discipline, revision, along with the student government
revision that will arise from the report of the Haskins Commission, coming out next week, will, it is hoped, bring student administration up to date.
The present system was designed to meet the need of a much
smaller institution. The revision Should make the set-up praijjtical
for a university of over ten thousand students. We hope it will.
The question of what to do With reports from conferences
came up for the umpteenth time Mpnday night.
A great ke-fuffle arqse oyer what to dp with fhe resolutions
from the Student Executive Conference.
Had all the resolutions been fully discussed, your long-suffering reporter, would still be there taking notes, and certain long-
winded councillors would still be defending their favorite projects.
"We get a lot of these things from time to time", said Ian
Stewart, "and we should have some method for dealing with
them." Stewart suggested that perhaps the councillor in charge
of constitutional revisions should scrutinize the reports and then,
refer each resolution to the body with which it deals. Only highly
controversial suggestions, or resolutions dealing directly with-
council would be discussed at Council meetings.
All wear, Council has been searching for ways to save Council
time. This looks like a good idea.
I commend the idea to the incoming Council. It would be a
step in the right direction.
In response to an editorial written by myself and a cohort
with the same initials, the women on Council, all eight of them,

Soon after arriving, this note came into my possession:
F. F. Editor of the "You-busy."
.Dearest F.F.:
The decorations you see about you are given with the sin-
cerest wishes of the "wimmin". They are just terribly clever and
artistic, don't you think? Remember—if the boys won't manage
the university's affairs, the "wimmin" will-—Remember there's
more than one way to get around a problem—ask any woman.

In answer to the President's question as to who was responsible for the decorations, AWS President Darling, answered
that it was the AWS in its "broad" sense.
Well, ladies, we appreciate your artistry and initiative, but
we still shudder at the thought of a female-dominnated campus.
The USC songfest last week drew a grand total of twenty-one

the inattendance on bad weather and poor publicity. Proximity
to the IFC songfest may have had some effect.

Women's Athletics is attempting to get student representation
at the WCIAU general meeting in future. In the past faculty members have exercised all of UBC's voting power.
WAD has also passed a resolution recommending that a committee be struck to organize mixed sport. The sailing team fiasco
inspired this overdue move. Other organizations should get behind
the idea.
Since this is the last time that this reporter will personally
fill this space, he would like to make a few acknowledgements.
When he began writing this column on the affairs of the
Students' Council, he knew little of the subject and was forced
to rely a great deal on the co-operation of the councillors. This
they gave freely; and for this we thank them.
I would especially like to acknowledge the aid and encouragement that I received from Pete Meekison, Pete Haskins, Lynne
Rogers, and John Goodwin.
To all of the councillors, however, I extend a personal vote of
Dear Cheat:
If there was ever an incident
of biased journalism, it was the
report of the annual Council-
Ubyssey battle when the clean-
cut Councillors condescended to,
the level of the Pubsters to engage in what has been loosely
termed as a "basketball game".,
The Final Score was 28-27 for
the Students' Council. If the
Pubsters had won, the newf
would haye made the Front
Page. But the Ubyssey Staffers,
lost, and the event, without the
final score, was buried in the
lowest of all columns, "Sound
Off". Buried, that is, with a letter from the Official Scorer that
had been "doctored."
The prize was, apparently, a
case of beer. The Council winners never saw the beer. It was
opined that the Pubsters drank
it in a "pre-game warm-up". The
prize wasn't important because
the clean-cut Councillors never
indulge in such practices.
During the negotiations for the
game, two referees were selected: R. Kerry White, Editor-in-
Chief of the lowly Ubyssey, and
myself for the Alma Mater Society. The Editor didn't show and
so you have no justification to
make claims of unfair officiating.
I can only say that "I called
'eip as I saw 'em", which was a
little difficult when the Pubsters raided the floor with 20 to
30"players". The Official Time
was kept by the Referee. You
Pubsters tried to terminate the
game whilst you were ahead, but
your attempt was foiled and the
Official Time was adhered to.
The height of the Pubsters'
lowly antics oceured when a
male "player" committed a disgusting J:qu1 on a female member of his own Ubyssey team.
He took advantage of the situation.
As one can plainly see, you
have  absolutely   no   basis upon
which to claim "unfairness". It
is just another element of the
Ubyssey's unreliable reporting.
Yours impartially,
John Goodwin,
Referee Extraordinary.

your ego was buried under basketballs sunk by Pubsters. And

Heavy Requirements
For UBC Commercemen
Thirty years have passed
since the first student registered for courses leading to the
degree of Bachelor of Commerce in the University of British Columbia. A number of
significant changes have been
made in the program, in courses, in standards of admission
and so forth, the extent and
intent of which may be known
to only a "few members of the
present student body and faculty. Some comments on these
changes may be of interest to
Ubyssey readers.
As the province grew in
numbers and as business matured a demand was created
for more and more university
graduates in the world of Commerce and Industry. Canadian
Universities were meeting the
demand in part with graduates in Arts, Science, Engineering, Forestry and the like.
The business man, however,
felt that he wanted young
men who had more familiarity
with accounting and finance,
with marketing, with statistics
and knowledge of business
organization and business operation, than he could expect
from the average B.A., B.Sc,
or B.A.Sc. In this province
a request was made, in 1917,
to the Board of Governors to
initiate such a separate program; for a variety of reasons
no action was taken until
The Bachelor's programme
was originally a pass degree,
requiring university entrance
for admission, and comprising
four years of study. Some
years later the course load
was increased to 66 units, by
the addition of 3 units in each
of the last two years. This
university was one of the pioneers in extension to a five
year program, in 1949 - 50,
and until last year was the
only university in Western
Canada with such a requirement. This was achieved by
making the completion of
First Year Arts a condition
of admission and by adding
a new group of courses in the
final year. In 1956 the course
load was further increased to~
a total of 87 units. As far as I
:an discover this is the heav
iest undergraduate requirement, by any Canadian or
American University, for a
bachelor's degree in Commerce or Business Administration.
Why have we done this?
Certainly not to make life
more difficult or deprive Commerce men and women of time
and opportunity for extra-curricular activity. We believe
that these are very important.
In point of fact we believe
that Commerce Students do
carry their share of the load
of student activities.
The answer lies in a decision to restrict the Commerce
program to those who had sufficient ability and energy to
carry an 18-unit year load,
throughout four years. We
have avoided asking for any
special courses outside the
Faculty, since we wanted to
make sure that our students
carried the extra course load
in competition with others for
whom a 15-unit load was prescribed. Despite—or perhaps
because of — these standards
our student registration has
grown since 1954 at the same
pace as the. total university
population; we have the largest registration in Commerce
in Canada and our graduates
are sought after by employers
and graduate schools.
It is not generally known
that approximately one-half
of the courses accepted for
the B. Com. degree are provided by Arts and Science
instructors. We depend on
them for courses in tbe humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and the physical
sciences. The Faculties of Law,
Applied Science and Forestry
participate in some areas. The
other half of the programme
is provided in Commerce. .A
certain number of basic
courses are prescribed for all
students in each year. The
rest of the programme may be
defined as study in a field-of-
concentration. To state it in
terms used in other Faculties
We provide extended Honours
courses, in one of fourteen
This "depth" may be in'
Accounting or Marketing, Production or Finance,   Econom
ics or Classics, Mathematics
or Forestry and so forth. What
is important is that each student has a chance to select
an area of his choice and obtain some mastery in that
field. Planned in this way we
believe that Commerce Options provide the "best of both
worlds" — a broad academic
base, with depth of study in
one area.
Graduates of other faculties,
or other universities who wish
to enter business are registering in increasing numbers for
the two year graduate course
leading to the degree of
M.B.A. (Master of Business
Administration) Plans are now
being made for a programme
leading to a Ph.D. in Business
Administration with emphasis
on training university teachers
and research workers rather
than in preparation for administrative positions in industry.
A school of business cannot
escape a major responsibility
in adult education. Nor have
we tried to do so. Many of the
three thousand students registered for non-credit courses
in our Faculty are preparing
for professional examinations
in Accounting. Others are improving their qualifications in
specialized areas such as municipal administration or sales
management. These courses do
not lead to a degree. The fact
that before Diplomas are
issued, men and women will
attend lectures after a days
work, prepare home assignments, and pass examinations
for a period of three to five
years, indicates the strtength
of their interestt. An increasing number of graduates of
other faculties are registering
in  these  Diploma   courses.
These are a few of the developments that have occurred
within a brief space of time.
We are far from satisfied with
what has been achieved. Canada is becoming a great industrial nation, with a population of two-thirds on one per
cent of the world we rank
sixth in the world; in terms
of total dollars originating in
manufacturing; forth in terms
of exports and imports and
second in terms of consumer
expenditures per capita
President of  C.U.S.
Ever since the influx of learning-hungry vets after the
war the campus of U.B>C. has been marred by an array of
army huts. These tarpaper shacks were designated temporary
quarters, and they have certainly proven no more permanent
than the old Arts Building, or some of the other temporary
accommodation erected in  the  university  area.
There is a certain sense of togetherness, of belonging-
ness, which seems to influence the student as he starts on a
career in Commerce. These relics of the war and discord in
humanity have come to assume a position akin to old, disreputable friends. They are the type of friend who never"
causes one a stab of conscience, for unlike the bright new
buildings which speak of man's success and achievement,
these are the results of man's dismal failures—failures in
more sense than one, for they were built to help fight a war
after man had failed to get along with man, and because
their very appearance fails to evoke any emotion save displeasure in the passer-by.
These huts bespeak failure,  lack  of  imagination.   Consequently when one fails to learn or does not use even common   sense in  assaulting   some  obstacles,   he   need   merely
look at the dilapidated huts and feel that he is not unique in
the human race.
Deep down we all despise this type of friend, but on the
surface the inherent laziness in man seeks company. It is
always much easier to go along with the crowd than to stand
up and be counted, and it would follow that the natural
tendency for a student in such surroundings, would be to
adopt mediocracy and failure as his motto.
Counselling Prog
Faculty Members
During the last two years
the Students' Council has
shown a great deal of interest
in the idea of establishing
a counseling service for first
year students to supplement
the existing facilities on the
campus. They have made representation to the Senate of
the university, pointing the
need for such services and the
advantages which may accrue
to the students if such a system
could be implimented. The
Senate has approved the idea
in principle but it remains to
be seen how it can be set up
or administered. Both the
AMS and the Senate are appreciative of the difficulties
involved in trying to set up
a counselling service because
of the number of student involved.
In the light of this, it
might be of interest to report
on the counseling program
in the Faculty of Commerce.
In 1950, shortly after Dean
MacPhee took over the School,
it was decided to establish
a counseling system. It was
the general feeling on the
part of the staff that there
was a danger of students
graduating without anyone on
the faculty really knowing
them. At the same time, the
students evidenced interest in
some kind of a scheme whereby students would have someone on the faculty with whom
they could discuss their problems. A counselling system
seemed to be the answer to
these two problems.
The counselling program in
the Faculty of Commerce is,
to a degree, formalized. Each
member of the staff acts as a
counsellor in the program. At
the beginning of the year, the
student population is divided
according to their option into
groups and placed under one
of the faculty members who UP A TREE, but liking it, is 1
has to act as the counsellor. In Bill Garriock. It is reported tl
terms  of the  student popu- persuaded to attend  arms..
atilon, each counsellor is responsible for about thirty students. The thought is that
the faculty member would remain the counsellor for the
same group of students
throughout their career. This,
in fact, does not always work
out, but ideally, it is what is
desired. The students are
then notified that they are to
report to their counsellor to
arrange an appointment. During the first three years, this
is a compulsory meeting and
students are informed seriously that the responsibility
for arranging this interview is )f1960

Has this been so in the Commerce Faculty?
I don't know, and any judgment made must be sub-

one on the staff with whom he
can discuss his problems, academic or otherwise. At this
meeting, the counselor stresses
the idea that he is available
to the student at any time in
the future to help him if it is
within his power.
After this first formal meeting, the student is free to consult his counsellor at any time.
Generally speaking, for example, students who have academic difficulties with the
Christmas examinations are required to see their counsellors
in January. At this meeting,
the counsellor and student discuss the problem and try to
work out some reasonable
plan to overcome the difficulty. Further meetings may
take place when the student
is preparing his next year's
program. Experience has
shown that many students
take advantage of this opportunity to discuss a wide variety of problems with the'ir
It is to be noted that students in the fourth year do
not have a formal meeting as
described. It is recognized
here that this meeting is not
really required because the
liaison between student and
counsellor has already been
firmly established and because
there are required contacts
between the staff and graduating students in connection
with their academic program
for graduation. Every student
completes a graduation essay
and this requires rather close
consultation with his instructor.
Those who have had experience with this scheme are not
deluded into believing that
this is the only type of counselling program which could
be set up. It becomes abundantly clear that the success
of the program depends on

pends upon the attitude of the
student being interviewer..The
compulsory nature of the
whole program tends to negate some of its advantages
because not everyone wants
or needs counselling simply
because he is a university student.
The amount of time given by
the counsellor to this program
becomes very heavy. It
means, in fact, that if the program is to be a success, the
instructor must maintain an
open-door policy for his students.
Business Texts:
A Defense
Recently certain individuals have criticized economics and
business authorities for what they claim to be an unnecessary and
ridiculous confusion of the facts. It has also been suggested that
text books written in these areas are guilty of much the same
practice. The following passage has been chosen to point out
that such charges are entirely uncalled for and unfounded.
"This mortgage, as the name implies, is given by
the buyer to the seller, as part of the purchase price of
the property which the mortgagor acquires. (If the
mortgage is large enough, it could be made the security
for a purchase money mortgage bond issue, which the
vendor could sell to realize cash). Such a vendor's lien
precedes the claim which any of the purchaser's bonds
might have because of an after-acquired clause. Since the
old bondholders have as much security as before, plus a
claim on any excess value which the new property may
have over and above the purchase money mortgage,
they are not ordinarily injured but bettered."
Such explanations as these, clear and concise, are found
liberally sprinkled through the majority of commercial texts.
In support of the contention that no cluttering does exist in these
texts, the well known writer' on business administration and
policy, Irving N. Crabb, has written the following defense;
"Such claims as made by these unintelligent and
uneducated  criticizers  is entirely  ridiculous.   For them
who  have   studied  this   problem   in   its  real light,  and
God knows most of us have (slap!), it is readily seen that
our writings are designed with the utmost perfurictory
clarity and  discernability.  We  must endeavour  to  keep    [
up with the standards implict in the very qualities of our   '
writings. The criticisms directed at us have no base in the
nominally considered  origins of business  writings, and  ">
such eriticizers^ave, missed hitting the nail on the head   '
by a, country mile. In order to defend our position I must- i
point out that overly keen writers sometimes write in a
partially ambigious-connotation of the paradoxical facts.
Contrariwise the situation  is  also  true,   but  it  is  only
once in  a  blue* moon that such  criticisms  are  justified,
certainly no more so  than in  other fields.  The  recent
deluge of these unfounded remarks has really got the hair
up on my back, how abput the rest of you?"
Note: It is presumed that Mr. Crabb is addressing his colleagues '
and looking for further support to defend his contention.

Anne AAatHiiott
. . . poet of joy
Anne Marroitt's poem The.Wind Qur^nemy appeared in
the Ryerson Poetry C^ap-Bpok 80 in 1939, and earned for its
author a firjn reputation as a significant contributor to the
contemporary development of Canadian poetry. Since that
time, Anne Harriott "has, b.een continually on the liferary scene,
represented in numerous periodicals, in anthologies, and by
collections ol her poenas.
Born in Victoria in 1913, Miss Marriott has devoted her
entire life to the world of writing. She has written radio broadcasts, articles, shprt stories, apd poetry: she has helped to found
and maintain) Co^t^mjgprary Verse; she has spent a number of
years writing for -the .National Film Board in Ottawa.
Her work has earned both praise and more substantial
awards. She tas won foe Governor-General's Award for poetry,
and also a "Vfemen's Canadian Club Award.
Miss Mayriptt's poetry is "fresh and concentrated in imagery, impassioned in mood," and she exploits her clear eyes,
her sensitive apprehension of the visual, ar*d her deftness
in diction an)d irnjgery.
"The \srheat was embroidering
All the spring morning,
Frail threads needled by sunshine, like thin gold.
The sun goes down. Earth lifce^a thick black c.oin
Leans its round rim against the yellowed sky."
At times, Anne Marriott provides an excellent vision of
despair, as in the following lines.
"Calloused, groping fingers, trembjing
With overwork and fear,
Ceased trying to clutch at some faith in the dark,
Thin sick courage fainted, lacking hope.
But tightened, tangled nerves scream to the brain
The cheap light of the beer-parlour grins out.
Promising shoddy security for an hour.
If there is no hope, give them forgetfulness!
The Finn who.makes bad liquor in his barn
Grows fat on groaning emptiness of souls."
There is stark forthrightness in such a description.
However, ugliness cannot occupy Anne Marriott for long.
Her strength lies in joy, and joy is largely the keynote of
poetry that succeeds. However, she tantalizes her readers with
tilings unsaid. She refuses to display herself for eager tourists.
" ... Deep beaver I
greet you under the masked water from my secret house,
neither will break the public surface against ^my wish
for sticks or stones or softest coaxing words."
In dealing with the mighty world of eye and ear, Miss Marriott
is most at home, and at her best. In descriptive verse she gives
freely of her own sense of joy, her own vivid apprehension of
beauty, color, line; and here she generously imparts an uninhibited vitality.
" ... gallant with gold trees
a small late summer salvaged still from fall,
from brlue snow crept from scarp above.
They lay on the short, sun-bladed, cold-rooted grass
deep-s'tirred blood whirling crimson hammers in their
red, blue and gold swirling in circling rainbow
round vital heads and limbs."
In communicating her sensitive perception of nature, the varied
and contrasting scenic magnificence of our land, Anne Marriott
makes a delightful contribution to Canadian poetry.
Miss Marriott will read a selection of her poems on Friday
noon, in BU 102, under the auspices of the Poetry Centre.

With superb frankness and
wit, Waugh entertained tfie' audience with humorous accounts
of his personal life as a novelist.
Dividing his talk into two
parts, the organization of a
writer's life and the actual writing, Waugh became a storyteller
and an entertainer with an au
dienee. Waugh regrets the fact
that he does not often have contact -With his audience, the readers of his books.
Other problem? of an author
were that he is always in fear
Of becoming out of contact with
the people that he knows and
understands. "When 'an author
becomes successful he may find
himself in a richer society that

Another major problem is the
organization of the author's life.
An author must seek material
for his stories. To do this he
must travel and meet people.
Because of this his home life
will suffer. This is "the reef on
which many a writer is wrecked:

Waugh emphasized , that "the
writer must always keep the
suspense ffom page to page,

fetid, when it comes, inevitable,"
Waugh described' the writer's
life as free and uninhibited from
the usual rules of decorum. "People always say, 'Gathering iria-
terial for a  new novel,   eh?' "
He then stated that this was
actually another of the author's
greatest problems. "A playboy's
life makes poor material for a

a virtuous one." This was spoken
in reference to his constant state
of debt. "To write a good novel
I must make new friends constantly. This is exptensive. I must
