The City of Vancouver will
pay UBC $500,000 if the municipal grant is increased by $51/k
"If the provincial government
gives Vancouver the $5V/2 million extra we feel the municipality should receive for education, we will give $500,000 to
the University of British Columbia."
■ The statement was made by
Mayor Tom Alsbury in a speech
at the University Clubs Committee luncheon, Thursday
Speaking on the provincial
grant to Vancouver for public
education, Mayor Alsbury said
the City now pays 60% of the
total cost.
"We believe that education
is   the   responsibility   of   the
provincial   government.   This
means that they should pay at
least 60% of public education,
instead of the 40% they now
"If   the   government   can   be
persuaded to pay the  increase
we desire, we will give one-half
million  to  the University,"   he
Criticising government support of education, Alsbury quoted President MacKenzie's recent
report on education which
"Soviet education is not as
good as it is by accident — it
is the direct result of a substantial portion of that country's
resources and manpower being
put into education and research."
"The difference in education
between us and the Soviet Union
is one of attitude," Alsbury said.
"Ih a country with the second
highest standard of living in the
world, and in a province with
a budget of close to $300 million, the Minister of Education
says 'We can't afford more for

Peterson, on the same platform, to show thai he is
The provincial debt-reduction
program also came under fire.
High School Conference delegates will be taken for a ride
by the Aggies this weekend.
The delegates will be shown
the campus from a jitney supplied by the Aggies.
A record number of students
registered for the conference
this morning in Brock Hall. The
270 delegates come from schools
from Whitehorse to Seattle.
The delegates will be welcomed by President N. A. M.
MacKenzie and after hearing
talks on "The Value of University Education" will attend campus lectures.
The conference will close
Saturday night with a banquet
and dance.
DR. MARGARET MEAD, American anthropologist, will
address students in the Auditorium at 12.30 today. She
will speak about discipline in North America.
Right Or Privilege
Higher Education
Society should feed, clothe
if necessary.
Vancouver and District Labour Council President Lloyd
Whalen told a small Georgia
Auditorium audience Thursday
night that "it isn't always
enough to pay students' fees."
Every individual has a right
to higher education, he said.
Mr. Whalen was one of six
UBC and downtown panel members who discussed "Higher Education,  a  Right,   or Privilege?"
Other panel members were
Professor Geoffrey Davies, assistant to the President; John Helliwell, Rhodes Scholar; Ben
Trevino, ex-AMS president and
Nick Mussallen, Vancouver lawyer. Chuck Connaghan, was
Higher education can be regarded as a privilege considering the quality of the finished
product, or right, considering
the quality of opportunity to
obtain it, John Helliwell argued.
Society has made it necessary
for new and growing professions to acquire education, therefore society should pay for such
education, he said.
On the contrary, if we make
education free, we would next
make it compulsory, and this
would lower the standard, Nick
Mussallen said.
Our future in Canada depends
on whether we are willing to
make an investment in higher
education, "it's far more important than roads," Professor
Davies said.
If Canada is to survive in a
rapidly changing world "we
must give more people the best
education we can," Ben Trevino

UBC Students' Council
President Charles Connaghan
will be interviewed Saturday
on a tape recorded broadcast
over Radio CKLG, 790 kilocycles, at 11:35 a.m.
Topic of the interview is the
tuition fee increase at UBC
and in particular what action
high school students can iak-
in that connection.
There will be a Publications Board meeting in the
Ubyssey office Monday
The students'council will not organize or sanction a general
tudent strike.
In a statement issued Thursday, council stated that a strike
would not solve the problems facing higher education in B.C.
"It is the feeling of council that such action would accomplish nothing toward solving the basic problem of higher education in the province."
"The present financial problems of both the individual
students and the university as a whole must be seen in the
light of the broader question."
Students voted heavily in favor of a strike Wednesday.
The Council brief stated it could not dismiss the action of
the government regarding financial assistance to the university
as blameless.
"We cannot readily excuse the government. It is obvious
,o us that they have evaded their responsibilities toward the
The statement suggested the people of British Columbia
be made aware of the financial problems of individual students
ind the university.
"We believe that the only effective way to insure adequate
public support for our university is to convince the people of
'his province that the need exists."
"We therefore are planning an extensive public information campaign to present the University's case to the general
The statement did not mention what form the campaign
would take.
"The task of educating the public will be a long and difficult one, and will require the time and effort on the part of
?very student."
Students' Council said it was "confident that if the people
of B. C. become concerned with the future of higher education,
adequate support will be forthcoming."
They said that a campaign centred around the dispensing
of information to the general public was not as spectacular as a
mass demonstration.
An extensive public information campaign would, however,
be the only truly effective method of insuring that the serious
financial plight of the university this year would not be repeated, they said.

Students voted' for strike.
Did they vote for strike?
Or did they vote for action?
Action against a $100 fee increase that will prevent
many worthy studerits from attending university.
Action against an attitiide' that roads and sewers are
more vital to a democratic society than scientists, doctors
and teachers.
Action against a government that is starving all that

UBC Social Credit Club)
As one who has been closely
associated with the-'Uhfversity1
Socred Chafe for the past -sev-x
eral years, I feel compelled to
state my position over certain
mattery presently being- r given '
wide publicity and affecting in
no small measure the functioning1 of "the club.
First of all, university financing and the fee increase.
Without a doubt there is not a
student on * campus Who is
happy about an increase in
It's only natural to be this
But the issue is not Whether
we like the fee hike or not
but whether it is justified. This
goes to the root of the whole
matter of higher education financing. If you're a Socialist
you believe that there should
be no fees. You probably advocate government living allowances as well; The present
Provincial Government, not
being;'Socialistic, believes that
a fair portion of7 a student's
higher education should be
paid by the student himself.
. The question then it, "What
is a fair portion?" I think that
this question can best be
.answered"by examining some
: figures which appeared in "your
newspaper a month or so ago.
You pointed out that ten years
ago, which incidentally was
before Social Credit' came into
power, student fees paid approximately '46% of the total
Operating- budget for the University; Those figures went on
to show that last year total
student fees paid approximately 17% of the total university
operating budget. Surely these
'i figures in themselves speak
• voluihes avn d 'indicate to any
faii*-«iinded person who wants
to look" at the issue objectively-
ttoa** a readjustment in the fee
scale- was long overdue.
Since the' setting -of fees is
completely within the jurisdiction of the Board of Governors
of the University it is not surprising that some months ago
President MacKenzie hinted
that there would be a fee "increase in the near future. So
we see that long before the
Board of Governors submitted
their estimated operating
needs to the Provincial Government for the coming year,
and long before the Provincial
Budget came dowfn in the legislature, a fee hike was anticipated It was only right that
this would occur to bring the
fees back into line with other
universltites. When the Budget
did come down; the operating
grant to the University was
increased by approximately
$700,000 to bring the total
operating grant front the Provincial Government for the
coming fiscal year to $5,000,-
Incidentally, this operating
grant has" irtcreased'froih under
$2^00,000'in 1952'at'--the* rate
of about $400,000 a year to
its present level. And at this
point I charge the Ubyssey
with misinforming its readers.
You have tried to create the
impression that the total aid
received from the government
for the coming year is $700,-
000. This amount is just the
increase. Scores of students
have this false impression.
Up until this year the Board
of Governors have asked for
and received increased aid of
about $400,000 each year from
the Provincial Government.
However, this year the Board
of Governors saw fit to ask for
$2,200,000 more than the previous- year. Granted that new
buildings require more staff
and granted that higher salaries  should  be paid, neverthe-

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The Ubyssey has been the
target of some unjustified criticism. I am referring to people
like Rog Skinner.
For Heaven's sake, Mr. Skinner, do you expect others to
provide enterta'irrment for you?
You too; Mr1. Skinner;1 are" responsible for thel Ubyssey.-'
What have you contributed besides criticism of the few who
spend their time1 on the Ubys-'
sey. (What an encouragement >
for anybody1!)

at least semi-intelligent discussion" for wftrieh you are long--
ing °so much. And if you cah't

less, I suggest that to ask the
provincial government to increase their operating grant by
over 50 % in one year was not
only unfair but unrealistic.
Surely the Board of Governors were not serious in asking
for such a large increase. In
fact, their silence since the
Budget would suggest that"
they were not too surprised or
disappointed with the outcome.
The only persons to take it
seriously are certain members
of the Student's Council. I
suggest that much of the furor
created and instigated by these
members of the Council is' in
no small measure an attempt
to justify their own existence.
I suggest that these persons
were looking for a pet project
to pursue and since the government is always "fair-game"
for criticism, launched their
latest tirade. No wonder the
Board of Governors refuse to
support such a cause.
Incidentally, it ill-behoves
AMS President Connaghan to
speak of the Premier and
Cabinet as "Bennett and his
gang" in view of the fine reception the government has
given two student delegations
in the last three years. Two
years ago, the Council were received by the Cabinet and presented their brief — the only
time in Canadian history that
student representatives had
ever been received by a Provincial Cabinet.

short changing the university
by $1,550,000." From the tone
of your editorials I think you
might as well have put a period after the word "government."
Yours truly,
Open- Letter
Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Open Letter to Corhme B,ruce
With reference to your letter
of March 3, 1959, I agree with
you that education nis a privilege not a rign-t, but beyond
that I agree no further. I think *
that you are confusing1 "privilege for the intellectual with
privilege for the wealthy^
Yes, education !is a privilege
for-1 those with intelligence and"
ambition enough to benefit
from it. But the fee increase
Will not rule out those who
are intellectually inadequate
but those whose pocket-books
just won't stand being squeezed for another $100 dollars.
Education then becomes the
privilege of those with money
enough to pay for it, not for
those   with   brains  enough   to
utilize it!
Of course you will tell me
that top students will find
things a little easier financially
because of the new government scheme, and of course
you are right. But just what
percentage of the student body
are those who get first-class or
high-second class marks.
Although I don't know the
answer to this, I would estimate that it would certainly
not be anymore than 10%.
What happens to the other
90%? Just because they don't
happen to be top students does
not mean to say that they cannot benefit from university
education, and these are the
people whom the $100 fee increase will exclude.
In light of these considerations, I certainly do not think
that protesting of the fee increase is a manifestation of our
childishness, but rather I think'
it shows an awareness of what
is going on around us and a
sincere desire to provide education benefits far all who can,
and who wish, to avail themselves of it.
It has been said that it is the
public who are responsible for
the sad plight of the University, but it is people like you
who influence the public; it is
people like you Who pave the ■
way for rule by art aristocratic
elite by your own unaware-
ness of the real problem.
Yours- sincerely,
Lorenne Gordon; Arts II

The lawsuit which the Premier has started has created
much controversy throughout the Province. We feel that
you should all be interested in the particulars of this case
since the nature of the action brings justice to bear on a
most delicate matter.
We have invited some of the most famous columnists
of the Vancouver papers to add their remarks to the general cry for dismissal of this action. We trust that their
exposition on legal matters will prove to be enlightening,
and at the same time, provocative.
The Premier has begun an action against the Law
Undergraduate Society. The writ has been served on
President Slyd Slyman, the alleged source of the libel. Mr.
Slyman has already been tried by the Student Council for
conduct unbecoming a university student.
Mr. Slyman, in his election speeches last year, promised the Law students new lounge and recreation facilities
to alleviate the overcrowding in the Common Room.
His plan was to demolish neighbouring St. Andrew's
Hall, and build a bowling alley, pool room, and squash court
off the east side of the Law Building.
He further planned to turn Anglican College into an
old-country style road-house, so that the many law students
on Students' Council could spend their time in the usual
way, yet retain some measure of association with the Law
School area.
Because present development monies are being spent
on such frivolities as the Biology, Chemistry, arid Library
extensions, Slyman realized that his only hope was a long-
term loan from operating-expense reserves.
He found that there was no reserve. Thus, he turned
to Victoria, "We need more money," he cried. "We need
recreation and amusement on which to feed our hungry
But the Premier turned a sneaky ear to Slyd Slyman,
and the fees were raised so that recreation would be ours
and playground supervisors would again be paid.
And so Slyd Slyman climbed atop the Cairn and called
the Premier, a scoundrel, a bounder, a piker, a shirker, and
a hell of a poor sport.
And so the Premier .sues poor Slyd Slyman.
We will fight for you Slyd. We will hire for you a
great lawyer. You will have the best. We will beat the
pot who sells the pans, for he truly belongs behind a counter
and not behind a desk.
President Sends
Message  From  Bar
All young aspirants to the Bar must become
aware of the Canons of Legal Ethics. They are the form
of rules which particularize the duties of the lawyer to
society and to the legal profession.
A basic outline of these rules would cover some of the
ethical principles which should be observed by the members
of the legal profession.
Bow many of us realize that these rules are equally
applicable to the politician?
They become: duties to the Province, the Government,
the voter, the fellow-politician, and to himself.
When the Premier sues a student for statements which
challenge the worth of government, it is best to keep these
duties in mind, for justification can rule out such an action
if the statements are qualified.
We must.doubt the motives of a man who would float
university students along on a loan as though the loan is
just another floating bridge which will pay its own way.
How often have we been assailed by the statement that
higher education is a privilege which we enjoy only because of the intelligence which leads us to this place of
^higher education. This is governmental compliment paid
in the.ej^ectation pf a receipt.
: In .all you do and say, remember that professional
esprit d' 'eoorps is the pith and substance of a legal career.
AS WACKY was saying the other day: — "There's    more   than    one   way  to   skin   a
student." * |
Annual Law Ball will be held
tonight at Hotel Vancouver. Co-
sponsored by Vancouver Bar
Association and the Law Undergraduate Society, the law student, under direction of President Sid Symons, will provide

value of this action, we sent our,
globe-trotting sports writer oyer
to .see how English Courts.deal
with similar problems. Here are
his observations of the House
of Lords in action.
This here's a tough league.
They play rough over here. I
mean this group of guys acts
like a Lion's directors meeting.
You can't tell who wants what.
You know?
I always thought the common
law was a kind of marriage
thing. You know what I mean.
But they tell me our legal system is based on the common
law. This could be a real bad
thing. Anyway, one of these
guys, Lord somebody or other,
was telling me all about this
and I just can't go along with
it. I mean, why should us Canadians have to pattern our plays
to suit Limey strategy. Anyway,
he told me that at least there
are no more Canadian appeals
to the Privy Council. I couldn't
figure this one out. Hell, everyone knows we've had modern
plumbing for years.
These guys don't operate out
of the usual formation. I mean
they sit around this big long
table and glare at each other.
I don't know who calls the
plays, because there seems to be
a lot of mixed signals What with
the waving of arms, holding of
wigs and all that. You ought

Slyman Charged
By Student Court
Early this week, Student Court heard-charges laid against
the President of the Law Undergraduate Society. Since then,
the Premier has brought an action against M**.-Slyman in the
County Court. The Student Court* was- very -well conducted,
and it is felt that evidence brought forward at that trial will
be of great assistance to Mr. Justice Stanley Jay when he hears
the later case.
Mr.   Slyman appeared  to  be
very nervous throughout the
hearing before Student Court,
and his defence lawyers gave
him.yery little support, .^tthe*
comlmencement of proceedings,
Mr. Giles blundered when he
stated in his eloquent manner,
"This man on trial bears the
reputation of being the, most
unconscionable and depraved
scoundrel at this university."
Whereupon his colljeagwe Mr.
Moseley frantically whispered
"That's your client you're talking about."
,Mr, Giles, fortunate that his
composure remained, quickly
.continued, "But,what outstanding student ever attended this
institution who has not been
vilified and slandered by envious .politicians?"
The Court was clearly unim-,
.pressed with this line of argument, and later, had even greater,
doubts about defence submissions when Mr. Slyman, after a
long consultation with Mr.
Giles, answered a question by
declaring "I refuse to answer
because I don't understand one
damn word of mly counsel's advice."
At the conclusion of ttie trial
in Student Court, Mr. Giles was
observed as he picked up the
telephone to inform a friend of
the outcome of the proceedings.
His face flushed by the efforts
of long argument, Giles gasped
into the phone -— "Justice has
The answer came quickly and
clearly from the received "Appeal at once!"'

tearfilled eyes. 1 nave t@ld you

our slums, the disgrace of our
old-folks homes, the perversities

other bad, bad things.
But never, oh never,, have I
been so shocked as when I
heard, about that awful .lawsuit
instituted by that-awful man in
Victoria. Oh you will be so
shocked I know you will. I just
know it. Ypu can't help but be,

I am convinced, really I am,
that our Premier is just about
the biggest meany I have ever
seen. Really he is.
I mean he has all that hardware in all those stores in all
those eities in that big area of
our fair province and he is suing
a poor peniless Jaw^student just
because he hurt his feelings. Is
that fair? Now,is it?

400  Dance At Orpheum
A demonstration was given
by pupils and teachers of the
Vancouver Ballet School Thursday, February 26th, at the
Orpheum Cinema. A long, at
times monotonous evening, commencing with a selection entitled "Atravea De Espana" of
which little need by said. The
Spanish temperament was lacking although one or two girls
projected personality and vivacity. The principal of the School,
Miss Kay Armstrong, displayed
a grasp of Spanish Technique
in her solo "Zambra."
There was good dancing and
presence from William Green
and Kenneth Moore in "Flamen-
queria" but the taunting dance
of rivalry between Miss Armstrong and Heather Skerl was
embarrassing, mainly because of
the impression they liked each
other and wanted the audience
to know "they were just pretending." Angel Monzen's choreography was excellent.
The major part of the evening
was concerned with the most
fantactically cumbersome ballet
I have even seen, "Puss in
Boots," the plot of which is
tortuous and baffles description.
Everything possible was thrown
in  from  Sultan's  dancing   girls
error, or hasty typesetting, resulted in the excision from
Jacob Zilber's poem, "Our
Critics Prufrocked," (originally
entitled "The Love Song of J.
Alfred Beatnik"), an all-important line "To dig a grave", which
followed "riding on down to
cool cellars of the sea."

attendants, all of whom danced
very prettily, not to mention
scores of tiny tots as cornflowers, ducks, etc. who excited
murmurs of "How Cute" from
the audience. Good comic miming was exhibited by the Wicked
Ogre (Kenneth Mulligan) and
his three henchmen (Messrs.
Green, Bowie and Suessmaier).
Miss Sylvia Palmer was a fragile, doll-like princess — well
done, Sylvia! Jane Ellerbeck's
Puss was not as interesting as
it could have been if played
more boisterously tom-catty or
as a feline minx but she was
likeable. Cornelius Pfennig-
wterth as the Miller's son, has
rather limited facial expressions
and seemed bewildered throughout. Heather Skerl looked and
danced a beautiful Fairy Queen
with confidence.
One realizes that Miss Armstrong has a problem in finding
a suitable vehicle for showing
the work  of 400  students  and
expended much energy over this
pot-pourri. I respectfully suggest
it would be more enlightening
to star the better pupils in
shorter excerpts. On the credit
side it is good to see such a
wide interest in the Ballet, and
I think for this reason it is
important for Miss Armstrong
to aim at a high standard; which
would definitely mean a less
crowded production, unless it is
meant merely as a show case
for parents.
I do not think children under
ten should be allowed to perform in public. Youngsters
worry when they fumble or forget and are surprised when indulgent audiences laugh and

harmful for it engenders false
confidence and when the child
grows older, it finds that "cute-

Praise should go to the older
students who work hard during
the day and have to practise at
night. There should be more
scholarships provided by civic
bodies to enable students to

The Beat
1.  In  Def(
Dear David Bromige:
It isn't possible to defend the
Beat writers against all of the
objections voiced by Loreen
Gordon, Sally Ringhelm and,
indirectly, by Jacob Zilber. It
is a little difficult, for instance,
to know Whether Mr. Zilber's
parody ("Our C r it i c s Prufrocked") is aimed at what he
takes to be the Beat way of
life, or at the Beat writers, or
merely at those who contributed
to the February 19 Critics Page.
In my opinion it says very little
about either the contributions
or the way of life, and nothing
about the Beat writers. Miss
Ringhelm's protest against "too
many signs of American influence" raises the kind of issue
Milton discusses in Areopagitica.
I think many who read it must
have been puzzled by Miss
Ringhelm's inference that Canadians need to be shielded.
Actually,   it   is  Miss   Gordon's
letter which is most in nei
an answer.
It isn't possible to answe
of  h e r   objections   either,
when   she   says   that  the
writers  are  "symptomatic

And the Sax Man said, Let

And the Sax Man made man

And the Sax Man called unto

because wind is life, the "pit

pit and prune juice are about
as deep down as man can dig.
And man dug. He partook of
the pit and prune juice, the
divine essence, the flesh and

partook. And life was holier.

and prune juice of man's body,
'swinging in and out with the
movement, spontaneous, true
and from within, shameless, exhibitionist, confessional.' And it
was Beat.
And life was beauty.
Com.munion was direct. No

The word direct. Multiple-meaning, complex - meaning, myth-

word, 'mounting the shadowy

'Bop. The journey is now.'
And the Sax Man said unto
man, Man, that's how: wear
your bop, your socks, your soul,
your alimentary canal upon
your sleeve. For outside is inside, inside is outside, surface

the word is direct.

ss Gordon claims to be
as well aware of this sick

he does not indicate aware-
that the most deadly para-
which afflict contempor-
man are the fear, guilt,
tion, shame, hatred and

ich actions which cannot
astified and so afflict us,
oying our capacity to trust
one another. It is against this
pervasive sickness that the Beat
writers raise their voice. It
should be evident to anyone
who has read Kerouac or Ginsberg carefully that they speak
out in the name of the soul
because they believe that the
soul has had not heard that
man is guilty or unbeautiful,
such news being alien to its
nature. They try to expose and
overcome the modern conditions
— as they have experienced
them — which cut the self off
from access to the soul's truths.
That is what Ginsberg is trying
to do in Howl in order that he
may "stand before you speechless and intelligent and shaking
with shame yet confessing out
of the soul." This intention,
which also dominates thought in
"On The Road" and "The Subterraneans," is best articulated
in Ginsberg's "Sunflower Sutra."
One may or may not accept
the Beat writer's essentially
romantic belief that the soul
cannot be violated; may or may
not accept their belief that it is
the source of human community; miay or may not believe,
as Ginsberg does, in "the supernatural extra brilliant intelligent kindness of the soul." But
that is where they take their
stand and raise as best they
can their cry that man is not
guilty, that humanity is beautiful, that life is holy. Sickness?
It may be that in trying to
answer Miss Gordon's objections
to Beat writing I have erroneously interpreted a movement
that is still in its formative
stages. If so, I await correction.
But in the meantime I trust she
will agree that there can foe
small hope of overcoming modern sicknesses unless we substitute understanding, which is
our only human hope, for willful misunderstanding, arrogance
or — particularly — contempt.

HUMP: Well, I heard from a
herdsman called Simple Simon
that he met a pieman-in-the-sky

orgies up in the hills.
LITTLE B-P: I was that "pieman." Where is the herdsman?
HUMP: He was too good to

what about these orgies?

off the rouge. No, you stay here

of political thought entitled
This journal which includes
articles by students and professors goes on sale today.
Feature article in the first
edition by W. L. Morton, a leading Western Canadian historian,
is a critical analysis of Canadian
Conservatism Now.
Two faculty articles from
UBC are by Dr. John M. Norris
of the history department and
Andrew Joanes of the faculty Of
Law.      >
"Sir Richard McBride" by
Briarr Smith and "German Conservatism" by Terry O'Brian are
the student contributions.
The Magazine which will be
published annually is to be distributed* nationally.
Special student price is 50c
including tax. The magazine
will be on sale in the Brock,
Quad and Library, from 11:30
to  2:30.
Desmond Fitzgerald, editor of
Raven, announced Thursday
that there will be no issue of
Raven this spring because "the
standard of contributions was
not adequate to justify its publication."
"We are grateful for the contributions we have received. We
are sorry to have to make this
decision," Fitzgerald said.
"There is no point in bringing
out Raven just for the sake of
bringing out a magazine," Fitzgerald said. "We want to maintain our standards."
"The harder you work
the better your luck"
..Canadian .humourist Stephen Leacock once
said, "I.am a great.believer in luck and I find
that the harder I work ihemore I have of it." And
Mr. Leacockwas so right. It's amazing how we
credit to good.luclc.so many plthe,results of plain
old hard,work. In every iield of endeavour, the
successful are considered lucky.
Take a-famous Canadian, Sir Frederick Banting.
His discovery of insulin' has saved the lives of
thousands of diabetics. He found, -secretions in.
the pancreas that led him to insulin. Looks like
luck, doesn't it? But Dr. Banting had first spent
a year doing careful research that made him
suspect just what he would find. When the
discovery came, it was not through luck.
.But there is one sort of luck that you don't make
for. yourself,.and,that's bad luck. For example,
you can't stop .sickness or accident from hitting
Jiard and unexpectedly. You can't prevent an
emergency like that, but you can prepare for it.
Plan now to take out disability insurance. Your
NALAC agent is prepared to help you work out
a plan that will guarantee you an adequate income

National Association
The Associated Women's Students of UBC has established
a national organization.
The organization, called the
Canadian Inter-University Associated Women Students, will
"assist in strengthening the unity between Canadian Universities by uniting the women's organization at each University."
Its formation was ratified by
the AWS Council Tuesday, and
passed by the AWS-WAA General Meeting, Thursday noon.
The University of Saskatchewan joined Wednesday, and "by
the end of the term , five to ten
women's organizations of different Universities will belong,"
according to Gail Carlson, president of AWS.
At the General Meeting, the
new executive was elected.
They are: Cheryl White, vice-
president; Valerie Capstick, secretary; Rhona Coldicutt, treasurer.

"Sheady, I've got moose for you", said J. Paul's girl. "I could never caribou-t
a guy with messy hair. Why don't you use your head for something besides
a hatrack?" This opened Sheedy's eyes. So he collected some doe and
hoofed it down to the store fur a bottle of Wildroot
Cream-Oil. Now Sheedy feels good about his hair because he nose it looks neat and natural all day. Wildroot
Cream-Oil contains no elk-ohol... er, alcohol... to dry
your hair. No heavy grease to plaster it down. Use
Wildroot every morning and the compliments you get
will be moose-ic to your ears.

Eilers Down
To Take Title
A game, but inexperienced
Thunderette basketball team
filially ran out of gas Wednesday
night as Eilers Jewellers won
the deciding contest in the best
of five Vancouver Senior 'A'
Women's Basketball finals.
By: winning 58-28, Eilers will
represent B.C. in the round
robin series to determine the
Canadian champions. This series is to be played in Calgary
later on this month.
Playing before 700 fans who
packed the John Oliver gym,
Thunderettes started out strong
and held a slim lead throughout
most of the first half until Eilers
sank two quick baskets in the
last minute to take a 24-20 half-
time lead.
From there on in the campus
girls couldn't regain their scoring touch and accounted for only
8 points in the final 20 minutes.
Defensively, Mernie Summers
crew were able to hold the defending Canadian champs fairly
well in check until just after the
start of the final quarter. At
that point, Thunderettes seemed
to fall apart as Eilers poured
through 23 points to only a singleton reply to win the game
going away.
White Rock's Heather Walker once again proved herself to be among the best in
Canada as she scored 9 points
and was outstanding both ways
in a losing cause.
Kinnard's Gail Leitner tied
Heather for UBC scoring honors
with 9 points, while hustling
Marilyn Peterson potted six.
Jill Symons and Anne Lindsay also were impressive defensively for the Thunderettes.
Misses Symons and Walker almost completely controlled their
own backboards and were able
to keep UBC in the game for the
first three quarters.
Zoe Shepherd, Lennie McGiv-
eron and the amazing Shirley
Topley led the Eilers attack with
14, 11 and 10 points respectively.
Much credit must go to Mernie Summers and her Thunderette girls as, over the season,
they defeated the Jewellers
three times; a feat which no
other team in Canada has been
able to do once for the past nine
STC sponsored lecture by
the noted Bulgarian physicist, Miklos Sydor, on "The
Nothing Theory" has been

Alberta Golden Bears, winners of the Western Canadian
Inter-collegiate Basketball
Championships, play the University of B.C. Thunderbirds in an
exhibition  series  this • weekend.
UBC and Alberta meet at 8
p.m. in the UBC Memorial Gym,
Friday and Saturday night.
Last year the UBC-Alberta
series was cancelledbut the season before, UBC cleanly beat the
prairie squad.
Next season UBC will be
competing in the WCIAU. The
games this weekend should also
serve as a good indication of just
how UBC stands in competition
with other Canadian universities
basketball wise.
Injuries still plague the Thunderbird squad which went down
to a 76-56 trouncing at the hands
of the Seattle Pacific College
last Saturday. Rookie Ed Gushue was high scorer for the
Birds which might possibly
bring about a few starting liner
up changes. Norris Martin, injured two weeks ago, probably
will not see action at all in this
If necessary, a third and deciding game for the series will
be played Monday.
Leading the Golden Bears' attack will be 6' 1" veteran guard
Don Munro, whose 14.0 points
per game average is second in
the Prairie league. Guard Man-
ry Van Vliet will be another big
gun for the visitors. Van Vliet's
.50 field goal percentage has
helped the University of Alberta
to maintain a .370 team shooting

Alberta is here for two and possibly three basketball games
his weekend, and UBC just may be presented with an overdose of surprise.
In past years, UBC squads have played this Alberta-UBC
series without really too much interest or whole hearted effort.
But this year, from all tell-tale information, the U of A is all
out in its efforts to come up with two victories. To win the
series means very much to Alberta, especially after having won
the Western Canadian Inter-collegiate Basketball Championships with the prairie universities.
Watch it Birds, Alberta will be out to collect your feathers.
Various high school gals representing schools throughout
