EDGAR'S DEFENSE
Following is a text of Edgar's
statement: . ; ■ ■
Mrs. Buda Brown's concern
over what university students
are discussing is an expression
of opinion to which she has
every right. I must, however,
take exception to her inference
at the university on the subject
that at a recent academic debate
of the decline of chastity the
participants were advocating
inimorality, and by even discuss
sirij| the issue were acting in an
immoral manner.
An academic debate is a competition whereby the. participants attempt to make as many
points for their side as possible,  the winners  being  those,
who, at the conclusion of the
debate have made the highest
number of unrefuted arguments.
To assume that those who debated against chastity necessarily believed, or practiced what
they argued is nonsensical and
irrational. _   '
If the debate was shocking Jfe
was because it revealed.' a declining morality in bur society
as a whole, but th« discussiosi
could not in itself be considered
immoral. - - :
Mrs. Brown's reference to an
immoral questionnaire is again
an expression of opinion to
which she has every right. But'
questionable literature f *drh
time to time reveals itself in atji
segments of our society. Hrb asf,
sume that such literature'; !fs dis-1
tributed officially at UBC is to
indicate an ignorance of the
facts.
Mrs. Brown's recommendations of censorship are shocking and appalling. TO advocate
censorship at a university is to
deny the fundamental rijgitsbf
academic discussion and freedbrti.
of speech. Mrs. Brown's expressed concern over the question of morality in the community is admirable. Surely sjbe can-i
not deny the students Of the
University of B.C. the right to,
discuss the same issue.
Oxford Uni versity
more chaste?
Last Thursday when Mrs.
Buda Brown was dragging Chastity through the Legislature, Oxford Union—a famous undergraduate debatink society—was
discussing the same question.
Oxford decided that chastity
was not out-moded by a vote of
320 to 227.
Among those speaking for
chastity was the Earl of Long-
ford.
Shrum says
Shacks will be here for awhile
By  DIANE  GREENALL
"Shacktown, B.C. will be
here for a long time*' said Dean
Gordon Shrum, chairman of the
University Housing Committee
Monday..
"Acadia and Fort Camp would
cost over five million dollars to
replace," he said, "and we will
be very happy to do so when
the money is available."
Dean Shrum made the statement in response to CCF M.L.A.
George Hobbs' statement that
Acadia and Fort Camp huts are
dirty, wooden firetraps and
should be replaced at once.
Hobbs added that they have
fallen into so much disrepair
that they are a disgrace to the
province.
"If you want to call it Shack-j want admission to Fort and
town, all right," sai«tShrum, "ItI Acadia as to the new resi.
is made up of huts, but it's not} dences."
run down.     Fifty thousand
dollars per year is spent improving the huts at Acadia and
Fort Camps, they are now in
good condition and not too many
more improvements are necessary."
Perhaps the huts at Fort and
Acadia Camp will be replaced
in the far distant future, he said,
but they are a necessity now
since we can't increase the residences to keep up with the
growth  in  student  population.
"The Camps provide the inexpensive accommodation t h,a4
many students wantj' added
Shrum, "this is proven by the
fact that just as many students
Bruce Preston, president of
Acadi^ Cainp Council, agreed
with Dean Shrum,
"The huts are not as shabby
as they are made to sound," he
stated. "They provide good
cheap accommodation and
should be kept as long as there
is a need."
Eric Ricker, chairman of the
student committee on housing
is in opposition to this policy.
"We shouldn't be pouring
money into improvements", he
said, "The huts are net con*
ducive to study and we will
never be rid of them unless a
special effort is made." Page Two

Letters to the Editor
Just how dictatorial is the Social Credit government?
S! isTouestion we all must ask ourselves in the hght of
one cabinet minister's remarks Thursday.
Hon Mrs Buda Brown called for censorship of undergrad.
uatet* br university authorities. She said: "Since when
te itlever been tl* role of those in authority to exeretse d»
cinline in our young people."
M*s Brown then proceeded to apply tins grammatical
monstrosity to affairs at this university.
Her charges regarding the "immoral and shocking questionnaire showed little knowledge of. the facts and a lack of
any attempt to investigate the matter further.
Her remarks about the debate show a complete lack of
understanding of the nature of an academic debate.
Buther request that the administration exerctse censor hip
overrent.functions is the most alarming comment of all
matTort of comment is this to be coming from a member
of our provincial government?
Mrs Brown has a right to her own opinion regarding the
moraTvahXe of debates on the subject of chastity, bu she is
SeadLg bn thin ice when she make, a blanket statement calling
Ste suspension of our fractional civil rights, ,ust because
we happen to attend the University of B.C.
Can there be anything more undemocratic than the suggestion that a substantial group in our society should have its
activities censored?
Mrs £rown surely must realize that university is not
merely an extension of high school. Most of the upper year
students 'here are of age.
Mrs Brown has absolutely no right to suggest that the
freedom' of discussion and assembly of university students
should be in any way curtailed.
We abhor such an attitude.
We are confident, however, that the university administration will pay no attention to her inane babbling. We hope that
the-general1 public will follow suit.
Greeks to the end
For many months, The Ubyssey has dismissed charges that
there is any strong Greek influence on Student Council.
For many months we have been saying: sure most Councillors are Greeks* but their first loyalty is to the Council.
Last week we saw to our disappointment, that this was
not entirely true. We saw Sorority rivalries come out in the
lengthy and, for the most part unnecessary, argument over who
should receive^ Honorary Activities Awards.
It came home to us at this time that Sororities come first
with many feminine Councillors. One of our lady members
took her first strong stand of the year on this trivial matter, and,
■we suspect; for this trivial motive.
We niust* say that we are sarJly disillusioned. We can only
hope we're still rigfit about male' Councillors.
Friend of Duplessis?
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In reference to your front
page article in the edition of
the Ubyssey of February 24,
1961, concerning the controversial debate held some time
ago on our campus; which was:
"Resolved: that Chastity is outmoded," it is with grave concern that I view the comments
made by Mrs. Buda Brown.
Everyone knows what stir
and what reaction this particular debate has caused in Vancouver and also throughout
the province. Now, to top it all,
members of our provincial leg-
islature^ are "putting their finger in the pie."
Is this a repercussion of the
sensational Liberal landslide
victory which swept our UBC'
campus on February 8? Alter
such an outrageous attack on
our student activities, must we
come about to realize that freedom of speech in our province
is to be taken away from the
people? Maybe it is time for
a-distinctive Bill of Rights for
trie Province of British Columbia.
In ease the Minister without
portfolio does not know, we
the Canadian people, British
Columbians as well as; others,
living; in a democratic country,
expect to-' have freedom of
speech, freedom of the press,
freedom of religion, freedom
of language, etc. . . . and to >
take away one of them might'
show to be most regretful fa-om
tbe point of view of a Socred
government in the years to
come.
Moreover, concerning the
Vancouver-Point Grey (I live
there) Social Credit MLA, it
would be most appropriate to
remind her that she has been
elected to establish good management in the affairs of our
province and that to take advantage of the immunity of
the Legislative Assembly in
making such statements is
very poor taSie and judgment.
Furthermore, I cannot see
the "exact relation" between
the budget debate and the
AWS-sponsored  debate.
After having lived for 20
years in the province of Quebec, 16 of them under the
regime of Maurice Duplessis
(who incidentally was a very
dear friend of Premier Bennett) one wonders if, in this
' interference in student affairs
at the university level plus
other previous attempts' in
other provincial affairs, one
must see the direct influence
of the former Union Nationale
Leadei^upotf the Premier, and
the implementation of his tactics through the Cabinet ministers of our Provincial Legislature.
One last comment: let us
leave the affairs of the province to the government (they
are already messing things up;
what is it going to be like in
three years from now) and the
student affairs to the students
(who, under the present leadership of their President, Mr.
Dave Edgar, are doing a tremendous job on them).
RAYMOND NOEL
Graduate Student.
P.S. May 1 suggest to AWS
President Fran Ottarkow for
their next debate: 'Resolved
that* the Social Credit Party is
outmoded in B.C."
Sharzer Exists!!!
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I find that I must write this
letter immediately in order to
dissuade those Arts students
who were planning to change
their faculty or quit university
because of my election as President of Arts U.S.
1 wish to assure these and
all other Arts students that despite the mocking tone of my
campaign I not only realize
the responsibilities of this oosi-
tion but also shall make a
determined and serious effort
to be a worthy representative
of the Arts students.
In addition, I would like to
remind these students that the
Arts Undergraduate Society
exists for their benefit and
that it is open to recommendations by any individual or
group on campus.
As for the significance of
my election,  if it had an sig
nificance at all, I would like
to believe that the Arts students have helped to untie the
bonds that imprison healthy
non-conformity on this campus. This is vitally important
if we are to prevent UBC from
going any further towards becoming a technicians' factory
with robotized, predictable
learners.
So I will say "Hurrah!" for
effigy   burning,   I.S.C.,   Engineering stunts, and chastity debates,   and  down   with   those
like Buda Brown whose rigid,
righteous  clogged   "minds"   do
not comprehend that a university must^ be a centre of free
discussion  anu  unselfconscious
nonconformity.  I  shall do my
share; the rest is "up to you."
Michael  Sharzer,
President-Elect,
Arts   U.S.
P.S. Contrary to popular
rumor, I do exist, I do not intend to overthrow democracy,
and I am not an Engineer.
By DEREK ALLEN
The vicious talons o four feline Students' Council ripped
into the recommendations of the Honorary Activities Awards
Committee the other night and left a torn, mutilated corpse
for the jackals to pick at and the kites to hover overj
It's an ugly cadaver, with maggots crawling on it and an
unholy stench rising to offend the delicate nostrils of the Gods.
It's an offense; a blasphemy. It's a foul creature that wallows
in its own stink and contaminates all who touch it.
But the body is not that of the HAA Committee—which
organization remains virile and active. Last night, sometime
after this polemic was written, a letter they sent to Council
was read out. Apparently they didn't lie down to die. And
since Council is meeting, it too must have continued in whatever form of existence it has.
No, the corpse that was thrashing about a week ago was
one that has been doomed but is not yet dead. The jackal
will tear at living flesh if his victim is weak enough, but the
kite hovers until it can eat the eyes of the dead. Death has
not yet come to UBC's decrepit and arthritic form of student
government, but the example of last Monday night—the horrible example of what students' council can become—makes
me desperately anxious to see the ringing out of the old, the
ringing in of the new.
The comments in this space a week ago, to the effect
that a certain ingenious candidate for the highly exalted position (nouveau riche but nice) of Arts President was doomed
to humiliating defeat at the hands of Buchanan democrats,
were blithely ignored by enough of the eligible voters to see
said ingenious candidate elected. Now I hear snide comments
about the use of our one press organ in an unethical manner
People tell me that the notice I gave said ingenious candidate was enough to get him elected. This charge rests on the
dubious proposition that any publicity is good publicity, but
nevertheless it may have some truth lurking in its misty
depths.
One works at one's typewriter for hours without recognition and has one's efforts disparaged by one's friends (justly
and with sufficient reason as one readily admits). One is told
again and again that one emits trash, unreadable to begin
with, incomprehensible if read, and unenlightening if comprehended. Then one is told that one need no longer console
oneself with the thought that manjr geniuses have labored
long years without due respect or recognition, that the prophet
is not respected in his own land, that the just and good are rewarded in the hereafter. One is told that one has enough influence on the campus to get some other one elected. One
is> dubious.
However, if it must be so, so be it. I have been a bad boy
and I will not mention candidates or elections again until after
the candidates are or are not elected. I apologize to any Arts
Presidency candidate who feels that my comments hurt his
chances of election. After all, I have heard a number of people
say they voted for said ingenious candidate only because they
were sure that' he wouldn't get' in. Tuesday,■February 28, 1961

Will   present   two   petitions   to
their students' eouncil protesting
two poems in their usually ignored literary magazine, The
M/use.
One poem "Genesis I" is a
."%eat" version of the Did Testa-
jnent story of creation, and the
other attacks politicians calling
.for "pink beer" and "copulation
for the nation."
A Toronto St a r story said
that "Genesis" author Ken Gibson "had been ridiculed, threatened and spat upon by other
students since the poem appeared last Friday."
Gibson is quoted as believing pre-divinity and divinity
{Baptist) students were behind
the trouble. "This calls for tolerance and forgiveness. They are
contradicting themselves," he
said.
The campus paper, The Silhouette, said that Gibson, third-
year Arts student and a member
of the staff did not regret writing the poem. "However, I am
not satisfied with the form in
which it is written. It is beat
poetry at its worst, and substitutes typography for poetry."
"Genesis I" is written in free
verse and pictures the creation
and its aftermath when God is
looking at the world which has
rejected him.
"Imagine! Me, God,
feeling rejected.
So I've got to do
Something

editor   of   Tne Muse   magazine
which this year "refuses to take
itself seriously" and in any year
is not taken seriously or even
read by the majority of students.
One   of  the   petitions   states,
"No religion likes to see its holy
scriptures degraded as the Christian scriptures are in this poem."
lit  also deplores,  "the   immoral
I wording   and   phrasing   of   another poem 'Election No. 3' written by a third-year Arts student
Cyril Deroo which tells of a politician   running   on   a   plank   of
immorality   whose    slogans   in
elude:
"Morals?
Get  in   my   way,   Syphilis,
Down with it.
There is a way . . ."
The third objection is that
The Muse is distributed to other
universities and to advertisers.
"We don't think this represents
our feelings but it goes out under
the name of the university."
Finally the petition points out,
"There is enough good material
to be drawn on to avoid these
things which hurt some people."
The other petition is more general and expresses, "disappoint*
ment and shame," that "this
book was published to represent
the best poetry and prose of
McMaster."
Opinion among the students
was divided. Many thought
"Genesis I" was sacreligious,
while others coasidsred & "wery

has been no action by the university administration.
By BOB CANNON
UBC students feel that the Hon. Mrs. Buda Brown missed
the whole point of the Chastity debate when she atnade her remarks to the Legislature last week.
The  students were   asked   to i
state their  opinions  upon
Brown's   speech   in which   she
questioned   the   morals   of  the
student  body.
Dorothy Dickinson  Arts   1;
"We  shouldn't  c ha s tise   Mis.
Brown, She might believe 4hat,
ignorance  is   bliss,   and  just
wants to keep us happy."
Other students criticized Mrs.
Brown for being a prude, etod1
jwondered M she wasn't "blinded
by the shell of her own goodness."
HONEST ABOUT SEX
Mary Alex, Arts 1: "Just because students are more honest
about sex does not imply immorality on thpir part. It implies that they ascent tilings in
this society more realistically
than certain ministers,"
Derek Gillis, 3rd year:
"People didn't elect her to do
this. Perhaps she should be
made 'Minister of Morality.'
"She's working on the point
that the average student age is
18, when in xeaMty tne ages of
students range from 16 te 65,
and the average age is closer to
22."
laa iBain, Arte  3:   "Students
Mrs [may appear apathetic, but they
will never stand any attempt
on the part of the government
to restrict freedom of speech.
"This is the seal issue in Mrs.
Brown's speech. It is her intention to restrict our freedom on
ithis campus. We must realize
that the umiwersity is the last
place in a HieanocEatie saeiety
'where *his should be done."

She took it all the wrong way.
"You- can't talk about sex,

"Just because we talk about

Brian Patmore, Comm. 1: Although the circulation of the

used for navigation-and property
limits ; and even for arresting
drunks.
•D'Aquino said for the. negative "Man is incapable of drawing a line." In ethics to draw
a line is absurd while history
is strewn with the wrecks of
attempts to draw a line.
Gordon Green, second affirmative speaker, said "Lines are
indispensible to civilized man."
In society we are only free
within bounds.
Tony Vincent, second negative, called the affirmative
speakers' arguments 'Quibbling
details" and added that a line
is an arbitrary bond.
Vincent said a line implied
a perfect set of values attained
by." the. society setting the limitation.
The negative debators summed up their arguments by saying "there is no point in drawing a line."
The affirmative claimed the
major argument between the
sides was the definition of the
resolution. They claimed that
their definition should be accepted as the negative was using
an American dictionary,
in a  two-one  split decision.
The negative took the victory
Psi Upsilon will now debate
against the winners of the inter-
iaculty debates. Winners of this
debate will then oppose a faculty debate team.
There was general agreement, however, that a package
deal of a winter sports arena
and the first stage of a student
union building should be presented to the students toy referendum.
AMS President Dave Edgar
summarized the meeting by saying he felt it was the feeling of
Council that the student union
end of the package deal had
to be strengthened before the

Miany Councillors expressed
the opinion that a two-storey

small a start on an eventual
central union building.

ADMISSION 25c
Open House is the big triennial extravaganza to which
the citizens of British Columbia
are invited to see the University on display.
For most people, Open House
is the only opportunity to actually view the workings of university and to see the real inside
story, inside the laboratories,
lecture rooms, library, etc.
This is where you, Joe and
Jill College enter the picture.
There are displays to be set up.
posters and banners to be painted, booths to be decorated, traffic to be directed, people to be
guided, and perhaps most important, questions to be answered.   .
When the public comes to
Open House they come to see
not only the buildings, displays,
and exhibitions but also the students. This is logical since without students the university
would not exist.
Don't let your club, undergraduate society, and most important, your university down in
the forthcoming Open House.
The public expects you to be
there with the answers.
Open House is March 3rd and
4th, and you are on display.
Medal awarded
UBC student, Ann Gordon has
received the Scholars medal of
the Institute of Americans Universities.
The medal is awarded to students with high academic standings in European subjects.
Visitors'
signatures
to be taken
Signatures will be solicited at
Open House for a telegram of
support to United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold.
The National Federation of
Canadian University Students
booth will charge visitors ten
cents to have their name added
to the list, NFCUS Vice-Chair-
man David Anderson announced
yesterday.
This is the text of the telegram:
"We, the students, faculty and
friends of the U n i v ersity of
British Columbia, would like to
express our support and admiration for your work as Secretary General of the United
Nations. We wish also to send
our warmest personal regards."
Anderson said he hoped that
at least one tenth of the 100,000
visitors to Open House would
sign the telegram. Special
efforts will be made to get administration and faculty officials to add their names.
The telegram is an effort to
offset the effect on the Secretary General of the attacks presently being made on him by
Communist ~- leaders, Anderson
stated.

r
Round the world
You all know what it is to
be restless, to have the spirit
of adventure run like a wolf
through your thoughts. But
how of us ever put this feeling into action, into something
concrete that we have done
alone and in the name of adventure? Too often we allow
ourselves to be bogged down
by fear of the unknown, by
pressure from the outside
world — from friends, loved
ones and undue regard for the
opinions of those who are not
even close to us.
One of the countless ways to
join the wolf"* in this hunt
for adventure is to hitch hike
around the world. Not just
to Europe or Mexico or Siam
but through many countries so
that your mind is hammered
and beaten into something tolerant and pliable to life.
Of course many people would
object to such a trip. There
will be 'genuine difficulties
too, nioney for instance. It
take too-long to Save" it up. You
would take too long to save it
up. You would'-need- .such a
lot tb go around the world. But;
there is a way! You are-university students with minds of
your own, aren't you? You
have energy, imagination,
courage and enough of everything else to start off from the
UBC Library: penniless and be
back there two years later
having gone around the world.
A further objection to a trip
is the gap it will make in your
career, in the 'getting ahead'
part of it. The others will be
making more money than you
by the time you return home.
But you will have gained something which cannot be measured by any standard except living itself. You will have known
what it is to be alive! The
others—let them be ahead if
they must! In a race of many
laps it is not the man ahead
after the 1st or 2nd who necessarily wins.
I suggest you go alone. A
friend, unless he is extremely
close to you, will slow your
footsteps and hamper your
search for Truth.
You might be advised to sew
a small Canadian flag On your
pack and paint the word "Canada" on; we are in fairly high
repute in most countries. Some
gentleman in Egypt, for instance, might be only too
pleased to tickle your ribs with
a knife if he thought you
were British.
On such a trip there are a
(thousand ways to begin, but
(Europe is about the best starting point. It is an experience
^complete and quite apart from
jthat of the East. You cannot
Icompare the two nor miss
feither. In, Europe, the Youth

When winter pushes you
South you might set out towards the Middle East via Turkey and Persia, across great
limitless tracts of desert where
the stars are like light-houses.
This is tougher than the rest,
but as long as you stay within
one day's walk of habitation
before getting a lift you will
make it. In Afganistan there
is not only the heat but tribesmen's bullets to worry about:
when you go through the Khy-
ber Pass it is foolish to light
a fire at night unless you wish
your sleep disturbed by the
sound of gunfire.
After Afghanistan, the Paki
stan, and into the fabled land
of India where you will see
beauty and poverty so mixed
together it leaves a dry feeling
in the pit of your stomach;
where it takes weeks before
your mind becomes used to the
sight of a child sitting in the
shade of a doorway, his belly
a swollen, tight football.
• -There will be Kashmir or
Katmandu to wander up into
. . . the long trip South to
Ceylon ... or across the top
of India to Calcutta and Burma. Whichever way you go
you can still hitch hike. The
trains are cheap but depressing
in third class. However, at
night you may climb up into
the baggage racks and so escape the cost of the fare. You
may sleep in the baggage racks
in India.
There is a road leading from
Bangkok to Singapore down

head either south to the island
of Bali or north to the Orient,
of Hongkong, Communist
China and Japan.
You can get into Communist
China — it has been done before.
The out lying districts of
Japan,'the villages with their
inns, their hot baths and their
very feminine women are what
one might call a wanderer's
paradise.
Some! imes on fhe road,
come to you like visions in an
opium dream; it is then that
thoughts, ideas and memories
you feel most alone and very
much an individual. In these
moments your philosophy of
life begins to change. You may
think of the hundreds of
people who have helped you,
the great or small things they
have done to make things
easier for you as a stranger
alone and on foot in their
land.
The boy in tihe village south
of Agra — he came up to look
at the map. Shyly he stood
there, his bare feet moving
nervously in the dust, the rags
he wore hanging limp. His
staring black eyes seemed to
express something far beyond
his years, something of the
continual struggle his life was
and would be until death, just
to keep his stomach even half
full. He showed you the way
out of that village and walked
with you part of the afternoon.
And then he grinned, waved
and was  gone.
At the end of the road you
may find you have learned to
keep your mouth shut, eyes
open, and mind soaking up
knowledge of life until suddenly you realize you know
nothing about anything except
yourself.

Mexico receives
Kwakiutl Totem!
A 37-foot Kwakiutl Indian
totem pole is being carved at
Thunderbird Park,'Victoria, as
a goodwill gesture from Canada to Mexico.
The pole was commissioned
on behalf of the federal government by the Hon. Howard
Green, minister for external
affairs. The University of'British Columbia, throiigh its department of anthropology, is
administering  the   project.
The provincial museum in
Victoria has made available.
the facilities of its Totem pole
restoration program in Thunderbird Park for the actual
carving of the pole which has
been   designed   by  the  famed
79-year-old Kwakiutl artist
Mungo Martin.
The pole, which will be completed in mid-April, will be
3V2 feet in diameter and will
depict four main figures from
top to bottom: the Thunderbird, sea otter, double-headed
serpent and cedar man.
Mr. Martin was the creator
of the 100-foot Centennial
Totem pole which was sent to
England in 1958 as a gift to
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
The four main figures depicted on the present pole are the
crests of clans of four Kwakiutl Indian tribes to which Mungo" Martin can trace a hereditary   relationship.

■BIRDS FINISH UNBEATEN
Pedersen, Winslade retire
■j
By  PETE   GELIN
>- The season is over; the
smoke has cleared. Despite
the unexpected calibre of the
competition, the UBC Thunderbirds have come through
on top, with a perfect 12 wins,,
no loss record in WCIAU play.
The ffnal win came Friday
against Alberta Golden Bears
68-50 before a wildly cheering
"mob" of 400.
Giving the night its atmosphere of sadness were the farewell appearances of two 'Bird
greats, Ed Pedersen and Ken
Winslade.
Both have been making
headlines consistently during
their four year stints on the
Varsity club.

UBC hands.
Pedersen. managed to see
most rebounds wound up in
UBC hands. Winslade's 28
point performance put him in
the league lead in the scoring
race, 20 points ahead of Ken
Galanchux on Manitoba. It
also gave him a shooting percentage of almost 50 percent
for the season.
The game itself meant very
little to either team as far as
league standings are concerned, but it did round off a flawless season for the 'Birds.
With 12 straight wins, they
are the only team of the
young league ever to go
through the season without a
loss.

UBC's hockeybirds suffered
a double loss over the weekend to the Saskatchewan Huskies.
The first was a slow moving,
cleancut 4-1 loss; the second,
an exciting, hairsbreadth 7-6
contest refereed by officials
who, according to coach Al
Stuart, were "atrocious."
In Friday-s game, played in
Kerrisdale Arena, the prairie
team was never threatened by
the plodding Birds. They took
a 2=0 lead in the first period,
added another goal in the second, and matched UBC's
single score in the third to
make the final tally 4-1. Boone
Strother was the lone UBC sniper.
Eon Molina, the 'Birds'
goalie, had only 14 shots to
handle, while his Saskatchewan counterpart was offered
only   15.
This was in marked contrast
to Saturday's game, in
which Molina was shot upon
43 times and the Huskies' goalie 39, a demonstration of the
increased tempo.
UBC opened the scoring in
the Saturday match when
John Morris scored on a pass
from the corner by Keith Benson. The Huskies retaliated
with: two quick goals, before
Bob Parke r of the Birds
snared the puck behind the
net and tucked it in the corner.
A minute later the Huskies
scored while UBC was short
handed, making the first period result 3-2 for Saskatchewan.
The second period, characterized by the surfeit of Saskatchewan penalties and the
lack of UBC goals, saw the
Huskies pump in three rapid-
fire scores, one a long looper
from the red line.
The last two were scored
when the prairie team was
shorthanded.
During this period the Birds
contend they were robbed
twice; once when a Husky
shot hit the Bird goal post and
was counted. The other
occasion was w h e n IJBC's
Benson bounced the puck off
the metal rim at the back
of the net and the goal wasn't
counted.
The Huskies gave a good
display oi penalty killing during the period.
Saskatchewan opened the
third period scoring with a
goal by their scrappy Renter,
f$ob Gardener to make it 7-
2.
Then at 9:20, when Johnny
Utendale, who played almost
the entire game, tipped in Bob
Bedhead's rebound, the Thunderbirds began their four-goal
blitz.
Two minutes later Keith
Benson stole the puck and
fired it home, with Morris and
Utendale getting assists. Dennis Selder added another,
assisted by Parker and Chern
Singh, while the Birds were
shorthanded, to close the gap
to two goals.
With 40 seconds left, Selder gained UBC's sixth goal,
and Molina was yanked from
the nets to make room for a
sixth forward.
This gave UBC a two forward   advantage   and   a   gopd
opportunity to  score  as  Saskatchewan was .a „man shjyrt.
But then, a frantic pileup
resulted in the puck being
held against the boards, and
the referee let the clock run
for 15 seconds, thus frustra-
chances.
ting the Birds' scoring chances.
When Bob Parker protested, he was given a game misconduct. The game ended with
the score 7-6 for Saskatchewan, and the 'Birds trying
desperately for the tying goal.
Referees 'atrocious'
UBC hockey coach Al
Stuart was steaming after
Saturday's S a s k a tchewan
game over what he called completely incompetent officiating.
"You guys aren't getting
paid!" he shouted at the referees at the end of the foul-
filled contest, and added
aside "These refs stink. We'll
never use these B.C. Hockey
officials again. We"U get our
own even if I have to ref myself."
Stuart said the Husky coach
Don Burgess shared his feelings. "He said he was endangering the lives of his players bringing them out here
to expose them to refereeing
like this," Stuart said.
Stuart stated his objections
clearly. "They didn't know
thejr positions and interfered
with the play. They weren't
at the bluelines to judge offside passes. They didn't know
the lules and permitted too
much dirty stuff."
"We pay the refs more than
any other B.C. league except
the pros and deserve good
officiating," the coach said:
"Next year I'll train them myself or bring them in from the
interior.,y
The Birds were robbed of
goals on three occasions, although the refs made mistakes for both sides, Stuart
claimed. In the second period, Birdsf goalie Eon Molina
-was charged with a goal which
allegedly hit the side or the
post of the  odd-shaped   net.
Later, Keith Benson tipped
in a rebound which seemed to
cross the Husky goal-line,
but the goal judge didn't
flash his red light.
In the fast moving third
period, the Birds claim a
Saskatchewan player fished
the puck out of his net, after
UBC had scored, thus nullifying "another Bird goal.
Stuart said a director of
the local referee's association
who was at the game suggested that, because of poor offici-
ating, the referees shouldn't
be paid. Stuart agreed, ad
said he would turn the money
over to minor hockey.
The referees in question,
it was later discovered were
local Chilliwack officials, and
were paid by the Arena manager. These were the refs who
regularly umpired the Chilliwack Steelhead games.

FOR THE BIRDS
By  MIKE HUNTER
Get out the paste-pot, grandma, I'm in the glue . . .
Basketball in the WCIAU was described some time ago
' one £.. Peterson as a game played with a round ball on an
Jong court before a square audience, or something like that.
?here's more competition in Woodward's basement on $1.49
iys," he says, sort of.
Mr. Peterson, you're dead right. The 'Birds white-washed
e rest of the league, and there wasn't even any Cheer, espe-
ally at the UBC end. UBC had one of its best teams in years,
it played before some pretty poor crowds.
Now, the competition wasn't anything sensational, but it
owed tremendous improvement over 1959. Long-range plans
ey say. But basketball coach Pomfret thinks next year will
ally be tough. He points to the Saskatchewan Huskies, who
st year won one game, and who this year have won five.
Aside to Martin O'Malley of The Herrndorfian, re thoughts

BASEBALL MEETING
TODAY HOW IH GYM
An organizational meeting
of all students interested in
playing for the baseball team
this spring will be held today noon in room 216 of Memorial Gym. Coach Frank
Gnup's first practise will be
March 1 in the Gym at 4:30.
UBC is scheduled to play 16
games this year. The first
game for the 'Birds is in Seattle March 27. First home
game is March 30 against St.
Martins'.
By  CHRIS FAHRNI
Playing in sunshine for the first time this year, UBC's
Rugby Thunderbirds responded magnificently in the World
Cup and handed the highly touted California Bears a 3-3 tie,
and an 8-3 loss, their first defeat in 34 games.
The last time the Bears lost
was in 1958, when UBC defeated them in a World Cup game.
Only the first game at each of
the two universities counts for
the World Cup, and the series
is decided on a total point basis.
Thus, since the teams tied the
first game 3-3, the winner of
the game at UBC on March 25
will win the  Cup.
Coach Max Howell termed the
Thunderbirds' play' "magnificent". "Our backs played very
well. They've played mostly in

Gymnasts win honors
After winning the PNW intercollegiate meet, the Thunderbird gymnastics team found it
an easy task to whip Washington State Varsity Saturday 93V2-
66% in the last dual meet of the
year.
Gord Gannon again received
top honors by collecting 33
points with firsts in the long
horse vaulting and tumbling
and five second places.

Varsity continued their winning streak Saturday, clobbering Redbirds 2-0. They whipped
Cardinals 7-1 Sunday, in their
best   performance   of   the   year.
Blues tied India "B" 0-0, and
Pedagogues beat  Hawks  2-1.

the mud this year, which tends
to a scrum game, and gives older, more experienced men, such,
as we play against in the city
league, an advantage."
Asked if the Bears continued
their notorious "football" style,
Howell said "No. They tried to
play rugby, and that was their
downfall."
"They were lucky that we
didn't beat them by more." he
said. "Their backs played deeper and we exploited them. When
they were deep, we ran, and
when they moved up, we forced
them back by kicking."
Thursday, all points were
scored on kicks. California tallied first on a long 53 yard field
goal. UBC tied up the contest
when Roy Bianco kicked a running field goal, a relative rarity
in rugby, through the uprights
from 20 yards out.
Although they couldn't score
in the second half, they completely dominated the play and
were rarely pushed out of the
Bear's end. The game ended
3-3.
In the exhibition game Saturday, UBC shone and broke the
34 game unbeaten streak of the
Galifornians by defeating them
