THE END OF THE BIG PUSH. (More pictures page 6.)
challenges the world
-        By PETER GELIN
UBC's Intellectual Stunt Committee today challenged the
universities of the world to beat the bed-pushing record set by
ISC last weekend.
The ISC bed travelled 42 miles
from the International border to
UBC, to promote the World University Service book drive for
Japanese and Pakistani universities, and to establish a new
world bed-pushing record.
She specially adapted bed began its journey under the fog-
sbrouded Peace Arch, and came
to a halt before a student crowd
Of 2,000 in front of the Brock.
The entire journey took exactly
twelve   hours   and, twenty-five
Over   thirty    ISC    members
pushed,  pulled  and shoved  to
bring the stunt to its successful
completion. Special mention
goes to Mike Hunter, Ubyssey
sports editor, who spent a long,
lonely night in the Brock, keep-
Hig-the city's news media informed on the bed's progress.

Open House calls;
x in
Peter Meekison, Open House
Chairman, said today that
very few women have volunteered to act as guides at Open
House. About 900 are urgently needed.
Persons interested are required to sign the sheets in
the Open House Office above
the AMS offices.
About 100,000 people are
expected to attend the annual
event, to be held March 4.
Theme of this year's event
revolves around the Brock
Mural. The event will be opened by B.C. Lieut., Governor
George Pearkes.
Fort food foul-
kitchen crowded
A bug, live evidence of the food served in Fort Camp,
was presented to Eric Ricker, chairman of the AMS Food Services Committee, at a complaint meeting  attended  by fifty,
students Friday.
The bug had been found in
a sugar container at lunch in
Fort in Friday, and was delivered to the meeting in the container by a group of Fort Camp
residents. It was put in the custody of Gil McKay, who was
requested to show it to the dietician.
Major points bought up at
the meeting were that the Fort
Camp kitchen is overcrowded,
and that although the food originally purchased for the residents is of good quality, t h e
preparation and service to the
students leaves something to be
• food is served on dirty
• bag lunche sare dreadful—
stale btead, hard cookies.
• milk is often sour.
• bugs, worms, hair, etc. often
appear in the food.
• food is wasted because students don't like it.
• Sunday dinner is good —
why isn't it the rest of the week?
• why isn't food in Fort as
good as in Common Block?
• breakfasts are repulsive—
cold toast, raw eggs, green ham.
• food is served cold.
• " meals are unattractively
Ricker said that he thought
most of the complaints at the
meeting were quite valid, and
that the dietician at Fort would
be asked for an explanation, or
for some improvement in the
quality of food and service.
If no satisfaction is forthcom-.
ing, he stated that he would see
Miss Blair, head of food services
on campus, and request that
she look into the complaints.
Ricker stressed, however, that1
his committee may only advise,
the administration alone can
take definite action.
Asked if any provisions were
being made ior enlarging the
kitchen, Ricker replied that the;-
administration was trying to get
rid of the camps, so any expend
sive -alterations would be impractical.
"There has been a general
policy of replacing kitchen
equipment as it wears out," he
said. "They Want what they can
use till the end,"and heavy
kitchen equipment could not;
be easily transferred to the
Commons, when Fort Camp is
When the men's huts in. Fort
are torn down, a new dining hall
will be erected for the women's
residences. Ricker said that he
felt a mistake had been made
in ever getting the huts on campus.
Poor response, due to inefficient distribution and general
apathy on the part of residents/
was given as the reason for the
ineffectiveness of the suggestion
sheets distributed last term.
AAardi Gras smash hit,
plays to packed houses
ONE OF THE highlights of the
Floor Show at Mardi Gras
was the Feline females who
tantalized the BrooMyri -Bos
Boys while Ibby sang out "Pet
Me Poppa."
Over $3,000 was realized for
the Children's Foundation by
the Greek Letter Societies as a
result of Mardi Gras '61.
"Mardi Gras goes to Broadway" produced exciting costumes and table decorations. A packed house for three nights revealed costumes ranging from "An-
1 nie Get Your Gun" to elaborate
i costumes from "The King and I."
The best costume award ' on
Friday night went to John Hat-
chett and Pat Lloyd-Jones who
,were dresed as Arabs.
I Saturday night winners were
Bob Parker and Marilyn Leslie
who dressed in costumes depicting the "Flower Drum Song."
Marilyn dressed as a flower and
Bob dressed as a- drum; they
were chosen for their originality.
Delta Kappa Epsilon won the
best table decoration with their
South Pacific theme. In a gaily
lighted corner of the Commo-'
dore they set up artificial palms
and rocks and took out the
tables and chairs. Patrons to
their sections sat on the floor
and sipped out of coconut shells
while  playing  bongo  drums.
On Friday night the King and '
Queen were chosen. The King
was Dave Howard of Alpha Delta Phi and the Queen was Sher-
ry Hurley of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
The   floor   show   sparked  by
"Take Back your Mink" toy Jan
Owen,   frosh   vice   pres.,   and

CAV-fools joke?
What hasJ>ecome of the Campus Association of Voters?
A CAV representative came to The Ubyssey January
16, and assured our reporter that the group was genuine. He
produced a somewhat odd program and stated that the group
was a bona fide student voters association.
The group set itself up as opposition to the NBC. Friday,
flie NBC nominated its slate of candidates. The elections are
.drawing near. But, as yet, we have heard nothing from the
Perhaps, the CAV is nothing but a joke. If so, it is in poor
Whatever we may think of the platform of the NBC, we
have no doubt of their sincere interest in student government.
Of the originators of the CAV, we have no such assurance. They must either produce some action soon, or be
damned as fools.

Marking inaccurate
Someone' said a few.words the other day praising "the
■biggest mass scholarship scheme on the continent." He was
referring, of course, to the Social Credit "money-for-marks"
This scheme is in many ways a good thing and not a few
students are grateful for the extra shekels they have received
as beneficiaries.
But there is one thing wrong with the scheme. A thing
■We have not seen mentioned anywhere.
The fault we are referring to is the unreliability of the
marking system at this university. In many courses, final
marks are compiled by rather dubious methods.
The many-times-proven fact that an exam score can vary
as much as forty percent when the same exam is marked by
a group of qualified markers working independently, is proof
enough that there is at least a certain amout of uncertainty
in exam marking.
This could easily result in disparities, when the money
is handed out.
j.       But, for our part, we say,  keep  the cash coming—we
■might get lucky and win some.
It may be a new experience.
The poet talks about fog creeping in on little cat's feet,
but the murky soot that hunkered down on this benighted village recently had the feet of a mature, refty saber-tooth lion.
The stalking action of a fog is certainly ^characteristic of
the feline, but an image anchored in feet has an insecure foundation. AH cats, from the spoiled domestic in grandmother's
lap to the vicious predator on the veldt, are hunters whose
padded paws shield claws that slash more viciously and quicker than any assassin's knife—and just as treacherously. I

Besides, it scares hell out of me to see some ass (human
variety) come barreling out of the fog at about forty while I

Entirely aside from that, all sorts of things come out
from inside hollow logs and under musty rocks when they

element has a highly developed smash-and-grab technique

Of Beds and Books
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In my official capacity as
WUSC Chairman, and my unofficial capacity as passenger,
I would like to thank everyone who helped to break the
world distance bed - pushing
record last Friday.
Thanks to the crews who .got
up in the wee small hours to
come out and relieve the
weary shifts who had been
pushing  since   midnighi.
Thanks to the hardy souls
who took it across the Patullo
Bridge at a flat-out run.
Thanks to the girls who rode
the bed in the cold foggy dawn.
Thanks to the welder who
saved us from coming in on
three wheels.
•Thanks to the staff at
B.P.H.Q. (Bed Pushing Headquarters) in The Ubyssey office who kept the radio stations
informed on the bed's progress
all through the night.
Thanks to the Councillors
and students who greeted us at
the Brock.
But special thanks to Kyle
Mitchell, Ed. Lavalle, and Bill
Redmond who designed and
built the >bedr arranged for the
publicity, cleared things with
the police, did most of the col-
losal organizing job, and then
pushed the bed about 10 miles
Thank-you all for your help

War Films
The Ubyssey, !
Dear Sir:
As a conscientious objector
in the last world war and a
peace loving citizen of Canada,
I must protest the showing of
a series of war films by the
Film Society during this week.
These films exaggerate the
glory of war a portray the-
slaughter of thousands in the
most graphic detail. Films of
this sort should be burned arid
the persons responsible for this
sort should be publicly castigated for their acts. ■
Yours in disgust,
Richard Bride, Arts II
Fog does funny things to people. I hitched a ride with a
fellow dressed in black. He wore a clerical collar and drove
very carefully. As we came onto the endowment lands he sped
up a bit but didn't go over the speed limit—he commented
on how trick the RCMP were with their radar. As he said,
a fellow in his profession can't afford to get caught speeding.
It just doesn't look right. Still, you have to be of quite suspicious temperament to think a defender of the peace and guardian of the public weal eager enough to set up a road block
in the fog. As if there weren't enough dangers .in the streets,
the police should add one more? It would be a brave constable
indeed who would step out to flag down a car when the fog
makes hit-and-run such a tempting crime.
Then there is the matter of lights in the parking lot. How
many cars have you seen sitting running down their batteries
with the light switch behind carefully locked doors and the
owner behind the eight ball. The callous chuckle sympathetically: "Serves the bloody fool right." But those of us who are
somewhat less than perfect, who are, perhaps, unfortunate
enough to have been in this situation, anticipate with a touch
of sadness the sinking feeling that will weaken a driver as he
sees beacons shining forth from his car.
If and when the cat creeps off, satiated, he leaves his
spoor behind—that smear condensed from the air we dare
to breathe. Those among us who are clean living types, who
have not taken the most elementary precautions—such as
toughening up our lungs with alcohol rubs (sldshings) or
coating them with nicotine^usually go about looking a bit
pale and wan for a week or so. They recover. But in other
places the cat is stronger and swifter, and he gets his prey.
There must be a moral in this somewhere. Tuesday, January 24, 1961
McGoun Cup Friday
Page Three
UBC tries for two straight
A debating cup with a 38-
year history will be the prize
Friday night as teams in four
Western Canadian universities debate the topic: Resolved
that Canada should follow a
neutral foreign policy.
The McGoun Cup was donated in 1923 by Professor A.
F. McGoun of the University
of Alberta. Symbolic of debating supremacy in the Western
Canada University Debating
League, it was won by UBC
last year for the first time.
Derek Allen, third Arts, and
Mike Coleman, first Arts, will
uphold the affirmative against
Walter Shando and Ron Neu-
man from the University of
Lorenne Gordon, fourth
Arts, and David Anderson,
Lcond Law, travel to Saskatoon to take the negative side
against University of Saskatchewan opponents.
U. of S. representatives go
to Manitoba which completes
the circle by sending a team
to the University of Alberta,
Four simultaneous debates
will be held begining at 8
p.m.  in each time zone.
Overall winners are chosen
by a point system based on
.awards made by 12 judges,
three at each debate.
Winner of the McGoun Cup
is eligible to send two debaters to Montreal in March to
debate against the champions
in two eastern Canada leagues.
ASUS general meeting
approves faculty split
At a lively but disorderly meeting Friday, Arts and Science
students approved a proposal to split the undergraduate society
nto two groups.
Amendments to the new Arts
Undergraduate Society constitution were also approved at the
general meeting, by approximately   150  students.
Under the new Science constitution, students heading toward a B.Sc. degree will be
considered members of the Science Undergraduate Society,
The primary objections to the

Society were that it was too
large and was not centralized
on campus.

Pearson to kickoff
new international series
The phrase "Water, water
everywhere, nor any drop to
drink." describes our present society rerfectlv. said Leo Nimsick, CCF MLA who spoke in
Bu. 205 on Friday.
Speaking on "The citizen of
Tomorrow," Nimsick stressed
that our economy is one-sided
and based on scarcity in an age
of plenty. "The people who own
and control the machinery of
production have to make a
profit. Everything is geared to
this . . . profits before all. In an
age of technical abundance, people live in poverty."
"People used to feel that leisure time was for the selected
few alone," he pointed out. "But
now, this feeling is changing,
and with the advance of automa
tion more free time will . . . and
should ... be given to more people."
"The problem is," Nimsick
concluded, "to learn how to
make use of the available time,
once the primary hurdle of applying automation has been

he said. "Also bulls would have

John Lecky, Arts IV, supported bullfighting at UBC by saying footbal was " a wandering,
aimless, patternless confusion."
He stated that bullfighting
would draw more spectators

Rfev. Philip Hewitt:

Women oppose
nuclear arms
Canadian women have a responsibility to speak out against
._ nuclear testing and the addition
of more countries to the nuclear
club, a representative of the
, Women's Committee on Radiation Hazards said in Brock
, Lounge Monday.
Mrs. Dorothy Beck, B.A.,.
B.S.W., M.S.W., said women
must not suffer from false humility but speak out against nuclear testing. She said the citizens of the world must stop
nuclear war between the U.S.
and Russia.
"It is time to reasses the mor-
'b^ljy of society," Mlrs. Beck
told about one nundred students.
"The problem inherent in nuclear testing and nuclear war is
a human problem not a political or scientific problem. It con-
;   cerns us all."
She said there is a twofold
danger in the continuation of
testing: a danger to the human
family, and the danger of nuclear war.
Mrs. Beck said she sees a
great danger of war if the Russians start sending out armed
planes, as the U.S. does, when
they see a suspicious object on
their radar sets.
pus Nuclear Disarmament club
on Monday.
The search for security, isolationism, refusal to think in the
present, smugness and a dangerous brand of "Fantasy thinking" are all psychological factors
which prevent the West from
adopting a sane approach in
world affairs, " Dr. Hewitt said.
There are man logical arguments in  favor of the nuclear
bomb as a deterrent,  but
"They ignore basic human processes of thought.
"We want to have everything
on easy terms," said Dr. Hewitt.
"And we persist in thinking
that something magical will
come along and save us from
the consequences of our folly."
Dr. Hewitt stressed, however,
that there were other factors
which made the situation look
less grim. There is a genuine
v^ish for international understanding, and there is always
the instinct for survival.
But "Mass action must come
from- the people of the world,"
concluded the speaker, before
understanding and then direct
disarmament can be achieved.

An NBC questionnaire reveals
that UBC Food Services are not
up to standard.
The first question, "How much
did you pay for your lunch?"
brought the answer "48c."
When asked if the students
thought the price was reasonable, answers varied. Fifty-one
felt it was and 49 felt the opposite.
The fourth question rated the
food. 15.6% felt the food was
"good," 40.7% said it was "fair,"
28.5% agreed that it was poor
and 13.5% gave the rating as
Descriptions of the coffee
were interesting. One student
called it good. Others expressed
their opinions as "muck," "detestable," "dreadful," "ugh," and
"unbelievably horrible."
Other comments were added
to the questionnaire. The cafe
is "overcrowded," "understaffed," and "giving a poor selection." The equipment is "antiquated" and "service is inefficient."
A group of Engineers were
true to type Monday afternoon
when they took a pig into the
Brock for a snack after giving
it a guided tour of the Library.
We don't know whether they j
were desperate for high 'class
company or were attempting to
test the porker's reactions to
Food Services fare. At any rate
the pig complained bitterly
throughout the ordeal.

MONTREAL,   (CUP)—For  this  year's Mock  Parliament
McGill students have  organized a new political party,  The
Greater National Uplift Party, called GNU. The following was
published in the McGill Daily:  Prolegomena  to any Future
Inasmuch as some of the national political parties, it is re
ported, have contributed funds
to   their  namesake   on  campus;
Inasmuch as the great majority of thinking people feel this
to be an unwarranted intrusion
into the ivory tower of academic
Inasmuch as this trend, if
allowed to continue, will turn
brother against sister, student
against professor; and librarians
against readers;
Therefore, we, a band of un-
trammeled souls, have formed
the GNU Party, a political group
dedicated to the position that if
anyone is to make a mockery of
the Model Parliament, it should
be students and not politicians
who make the mocking. To this
solemn end we pledge our unceasing endeavours.

Hamburg is an ideal location for an important center
of learning. It has earned the
reputation of being particularly internationally-minded. The
tradition of a free and independent trading center is still
perpetuated today in the "Free
Hanseatic Stadt of -Hamburg."
Hamburg's social and economic   growth    compares   more
with    that   of   Stockholm   or
London;   rather   than   that   of
Munich   or   Berlin.   In , consequence   it", is   maintained   by
Hamburgers that this common
historical    growth    has    made
^Hamburg   a   symbol   for   all
northern   peoples,   an   expression of the totality of their cultural   and  economic   develop-
.   ment, and in practice can be
recognized in tbe old financial
houses, restored churches and
In many respects Hamburg
does not differ in essence from
most modern industrial centers.
The past has been blurred by
the colossal destruction of the
last war and astonishing economic change. The old churches,
of which most symbolized an
old order are now overshadow-,
ed by the symbol of a radically new and perhaps more
materialistic order, the modern
The great economic changes
have spelt vast and far-reaching
economic and social changes,-
but the central theme that
dominates any view of modern
Germany is the abnormal predicament of the creation of two
constantly competing, conflicting German Governments.
From German.eyes, therefore,
the future appears treacherous
and uninviting.
Militarily and politically, an
untenable position in Central
Europe has forced the Bonn
Government to search for
strength through unity. The
policy of working for the
achievement of a "United
Europe" became the focal point
not only of German foreign
policy, but also one of the
chief inspirations of German
intellectualism and idealism.
The path has not been easy and
the stumbling blocks many,
the chief of which is seen in
the figure of Charles de Gaulle.
Although the fundamental
policy has not altered, a more
realistic, if more disillusioned,
approach to the problem has
been taken.
The creation of wealth and
substantial increases in the
gold reserves has led to increasing pressure on the Bonn
Government, particularly by
the United States, to extend
' additional aid towards the underdeveloped nations of Asia
and Africa. In addition, popular enthusiasm on the part of ,
the intelligentsia, particularly
the universities, has been increasing. A result of this has
been the announcement by the
Bonn Government of substantial increases in foreign aid for
the coming fiscal year.
This is election year for the
Bonn Government and it is
expected that Adenauer will
encounter his severest test from
the enormously popular figure
of Willy Brandt. In my second
article I will attempt to an-
ayze the issues at stake and
the personalities involved.
Auditorium Maximum
Die Hamburger
The Hamburg University and
its  Student  Body.
The six faculties of the University of Hamburg offer a
total of more than 1800 lectures and seminar courses. Almost the entire universe is offered to the curiosity of students. Over 40 different courses of study and examination
lead to as many professions:
from pastor to naval engineer.
More than 3000 persons, professors, lecturers, administrative officials, office workers,
technicians and others, are employed by the University of
Hamburg. Together with more
than 14,000 students they form
a community of more than
17,000 people.
the university. In 1959, on the
40ch   birthday   of   our   university, the Auditorium was ready.
The  new  lecture  hall  accommodates 2000 persons.
A number of institute buildings were provided for by the
"Emergency Program for University Construction" of 1955.
The plan, includes hew buildings for most faculties, new
clinics and student's dormitories. Some of the institutes -
planned are already finished;
others are now under construction. In two or three years the
Hamburg University Construction Plan should be fulfilled.
Since just after World War
I,   the  Hamburg   student   self-
is responsible to the student
parliament and has to carry
out its decisions. The ASTA
consists of two presiding officers and a minimum of five
members, each of whom has
to take care of a special department. At the present the
other members of the ASTA
are: two Social Officers, the
Press Officer, the Foreign Relations Officer, the Officer of
Finance, the Officer for' Relations with East Germany, and
the Sports Officer.
The University of Hamburg
has about 60 different student
organizations. At the head of
this long list are the Fachschaf-
ten, which represent the students of one field or one fac-

As a unit, the university can
be considered the largest enterprise in Hamburg. This enterprise is steadily growing.
Until now, our university has
been housed in old buildings
which were originally built for
other purposes. Parts of the
university are now housed in
new buildings . . . for institutes, clinics, etc.
On May 15, 1957 the foundation for the new lecture hall
building, the Auditorium Maximum, was laid. With this, the
first project of the new construction program was started.
For the first time, a new common centre is being created
which   serves   all   faculties   of
government has been an organized part of the university. This
is the reason ior good relations
between professors and students.
Al the end of every semester
there are general elections for
the student parliament, which
consists of 80 students from ail
faculties. This constitutes the
legislative body of student self-
government. Members are
elected by the student body
which is divided into electoral
groups according to faculties
and fields.
Each spring the ASTA is
elected from members of the
student parliament. The ASTA
acts  as  an  executive body.  It

Then it runs down the scale
from old traditional organizations to cultural, confessional,
athletic, political, present-day
student groups. Tnere are several clubs which pursue certain hobbies, such as film, radio, newsyaper, or acting. Last
but not least there is the "International Students Club"
which cares for and assists foreign students attending the

The Germans whom I met
and came to know in Hamburg
impressed me with their desire
to see Germany again strong
and wealthy. This has been the
great factor in the amazing
German recovery since  1945.
Immediately after the war—
before the last shots were fired
—the individual German shopkeeper, housewife or farmer
had become to shovel the rubble out of bombed-out buildings, to repair bridges, to reopen  shops, to  plant  gardens.
For the first two years they
fought hunger and cold and
sorrow, grimly and determinedly. Each man, woman or child
tried to rebuild or re-acquire
for himself that which he had
before the war. A publishing
enterprise, the Axel Springer
Verlag, today the largest in
West Germany, was begun in
the cellar of a bombed-out garage, a shopkeeper sold from
what once had been a h en
house, a taxi firm began with
one deserted American jeep.
There, seems to have been
little doubt in anyone's mind
that Germany could once more
be rebuilt into the greatest
power in Europe; and only the
Germans could bring to this
task such an intense degree of
energy, thoroughness and ambition, even ruthlessness.
After the war — and even
now — construction workers
worked double shifts without
extra pay in order to see the
reconstruction proceed faster.
Executives and managers work-
- ed such long hours rebuilding
businesses and industries that
the malady known as "Mana-
gierkrankeit" became common
enough to be differentiated^  -
The part played by the spir.it
of the German people must not
be under-rated in considering
the German development. Part
of their efforts stem from a
simple love of work; but there
is also an intense and determiner urge to see Germany
again a world power.
Today Germany is the strongest industrial power in Europe.
A result, partly, of the situation after the war. Factories
and plants which had been dismantled and stripped in the
immediate post-war years were
re-equipped with the newest
and most efficient machines
and methods when Marshall
Aid began pouring in. The
policy which was first to make
Germany weaker became the
instrument for her becoming
stronger. '• '
Today she is the foremost
automobile exporter in the
world. Her steel production
is again well over twenty million tons. Germans are exporting enormously and are invest;
ing heavily and opening branch
plants in South America,
Southeast Asia and the Middle
East. Krupp is carrying on negotiations to invest in Canadian iron.
The employment situation
within the Federal Republic
is the best indication of Germany's recovery. Despite the
twelve million refugees who
have arrived in West Germany
since 1945 and despite the
large number of foreigners
(mainly from Italy and Spain)
working in the country, there
was. in the summer of 1959,
an acute labour shortage in
the Federal Republic. There is
no indication that the economic situation will change for
the worse in 1961.

UN training centre
worlds first at UBC
The United Nations  Fellowship  training  center  at UBC
is the first to be established in the world.
Housed in the old Arts build
ing under the supervision of
professor Cyril Belshaw, it works
with trainees from underdeveloped countries.
Administration Officer Henry
Maggs said the training program
was first suggested by Dr. Hugh
Because the main UN headquarters is situated in New
York, he felt it would be beneficial to found a training centre
in the rapidly developing west,
where the trainees could study
directly the up-to-date methods
of development that are now in
Working with the Canadian
government and Dr. Norman
MacKenzie, Dr. Keenleyside, as
a representative of the UN,
found sufficient enthusiasm to
establish the center. It was opened in June, 1959, for a three
year  trial  period.
The trainees are leaders in
their respective fields and are
given Fellowships to come to
Vancouver only when their countries have passed applications
through the UN.
Arriving in Vancouver, the
.trainees begin an intensive training program which lasts from
four months to a year. Resources,
government and economic de-
. velopment are studied.
The study program may take
them to several universities,
government agencies or com
panies throughout Western Canada and the U.S.
Depending on the topic with
which the individual trainee is
concerned, the center calls on
the heads of different faculties,
and from them draws the basis
of the knowledge from which
a comprehensive training program is prepared.
The trainee then works under
department heads of this or
other universities, or with a
company specializing in his particular field of study.
The campus center is only
equipped to handle about 25
trainees each year, but because
of the well-planned individual
courses, each is able to return to
his country and pass on to others
the invaluable material he has
They, in turn, are better able
to aid in the faster and more
profitable economical and cultural growth within their countries.
Although it has been in operation for only half its trial period,
the administrators feel this new
UN venture is a success and
will probably be continued after
the three-year trial period has
been completed.

does not represent the number
of individuals assisted since
• some students receive more than
one award. About half of the
1059-60 total was in loans which
will'oe repaid.
During the 1959-60 session
students received awards from
six principal sources..-
University special bursaries
and named bursaries—-1052
awards for a total of $159,122.50.
Fellowships, scholarships, and
prizes—834 awards for a total
of $251,419.59. Awards in this
high academic standing.
Loan funds—910 awards for a
total of $226,338. Students are
required to repay these loans
either at the end of the term or
category were made to students
with outstanding records and
following graduation.
Money from the student aid
loan fund was distributed to 841
students for a total of $396,420.
The University was authorized
by the provincial government to
borow up to $2 million to provide for student aid under this
Government of B.C. scholarships for first and second class
students were awarded to 1540
for a total of $202,788.
Government of B.C. bursaries
to deserving students were

total of $01,650.
At last week's council meeting a motion was passed which
created the new position of
clerk in the Students5 Court,
John Goodwin said Thursday this had been done for two
main reasons. "The Students'
Court clerk will have the
power to call witnesses before
the Court and to lay charges
against those who do not appear.
He will also take over the
present administrative duties

is already very busy.
Those duties consist of arranging for a room for the
Court, letting the paper know
when Court is in session, and

UBC radio license
closer, says Climie
Barriers might, be overcome
in the near future to allow UBC
Radio to become a licensed radio station,. Bill Climie, president of Radsoc announced Friday.
Twice during the past three
years Radsoc has independently
tried to achieve this status and
has been turned down by the
Board  of Broadcast  Governors.
There are two requirements
which must be met before a license can be grantea. The Department of Transport must be
satisfied as to the technical
standards of the station, and the
sanction of the university administration  must   be   obtained.
The technical specifications
could easily be met, but as the
university is the only continuing
responsible body to which a license could be issued, the approval of the senate is required.
To ensure continuity of programing    during    the    summer
months, the extension department will probably work in conjunction with Radsoc. Bill Climie, president of Radsoc, met
yesterday with Extension Department officials.
If the senate approves, AMS
is willing to subsidize Radsoc
for $1,500, if a summer program
can be worked out, and if the
Department of Transport will
grant Radsoc a license, UBC
might have a private broadcasting station next year.

Journalism student
tries stripping
TORONTO (CUP — Ed's Note: Pat MacLean became a
burlesque queen last Saturday in one of the few remaining
burlesque houses in Canada. Normally she is a journalism
student at the Ryerson Institute in Toronto. Her feature
editor challenged a pretty blonde typisi-turned-stripper to
a contest with Pat ... a typing contest. But Cindy
Richardson—who once earned $250 a month as a typist, ahd
now earns $175 a week on the stage—replied that Pat would
have lo prove her stuff as a stripper in the local theatre. This
is Pat's story, of how she  became Miss "Redd  Holt."
I first heard about this on
Friday morning, after my coffee break. As I appeared in sight
of my classroom, a multitude of
voices clamored, "Pat, how
would you like to strip?"
I joked back* "I'd love to
strip. Where?" That one statement put me in a situation which
I had never dreamed possible.
"Good, get your coat, we're going to the Lux to look at costumes," was the reply.
"Just a moment," I said, "before I decide whether I'm going
for this or not, I have to know
how far I'm expected to strip."
"Just as far as you want. Do
Vou know what a net bra is?"
.1 didn't, so they insisted that I
go with them to'se^ what I was
getting into, and to meet my
In a few minutes I was standing in front of the manager, and
my   competitor,   Cindy,   a   cute
.blond, poured into purple slacks
offered  to  lend  me  a  costume.
A tassled red dress, split down
. one   side,   was   handed   to   me.
It fit.
"Now," she said, "all you need
is some underclothes. What
about these?" She dangled an invisible bra and panties before
me. I gasped; they looked as
though they were fashioned
from saran wrap.
"Well," I gulped, "they would
be fine, except that I have to
go back to school. Have you
anything that covers a bit
She dug up her most decent
costume a    couple    of
inches of filmy white nylon. I
politely took these, but decided
that if that was all I was going
tto have on, I might as well quit
After seeing the afternoon
performance, I decided I needed
some practice in the art of stripping. Cindy agreed to be at the
theatre by nine the next morning to teach me a few "bumps
and grinds."
In the meantime, the story
snowballed to such an extent
that the Toronto dailies and television studios wanted interviews
and pictures. This was a hot
story! . i  **"■''■
I was at the Lux the next
morning by nine, but there was
no time for lessons. Photographers and newsmen invaded the
theatre. In ad out of costumes
I  crawled as  cameras  clicked.
"Look seductive," pleaded
one harried photographer.
The other show participants
were helpful. A girl who has
been stripping for 12 years, interrupted her rushed dressing
job to put on my make-up. The
emcee tried to cheer me up by
saying, "Look, everyone's on
your side. All your friends are
out there."
Minutes sped past. The introduction to the typing contest
was given. I typed like a mad
dog, and had more words than
Cindy, but only two of them
were real words. The rest was
a garbled mess.
I dashed backstage, made a
quick change into my strip costume, then I was on.
I could see nothing. I don't
remember hearing any music,
though the band leader told me
he did play "Blue Moon." I tried
to remember what I had practised earlier that day but ended
up doing whatever came into my
I unzippered the dress, sidled
to the side of the stage, ducked
behind the curtain, grabbed a
waiting Ryerson beanie, and
skipped back on the stage to a
college tune, wearing an old
white T-shirt with a low neckline, a short skirt, and blue gym
bloomers with a Ryerson pennant tucked on the back. The
costume was not only decent, it
was completely sexless.
The show was over but the
publicity wasn't. Reporters, radio and television men took my
time for the rest of the evening.
I had to phone my parents to
assure them I hadn't gone prancing around the Lux in panties
and G-string.

God King" born on campus
SEATTLE—A baby boy born
at the Washington University
Hospital is gaining international attention because of three
"firsts" he represents.
THE YOUNG celebrity is regarded as a "god king" by perhaps one-fourth of the Tibetan
people. He is the first Tibetan
born outside Asia to a Tibetan holy family, the first Tibetan born in the United States
and the first child of the Sak-
yapa (Sock' ya pah) family
born in a hospital.
His father, Jigdal Sakyapa,
is head of one of four Buddhist
religious sects in Tibet. The
Dalai Lama is considered the
political ruler of Tibet, but is
religious leader of only the
Yellow Sect of the four religious groups.
The 7-pound 15-ounce baby
already bears the weighty
title, "Dungsey" or "pillar of
the family." His first name will
be given him next month.
Had the "Dungsey" been a
girl, the birth would have no
religious significance. However,
Tibetan boys born to such a
holy family are predestined to
become monks. The oldest Sakyapa boy 6, will be allowed to
marry to perpetuate the
family. The three youngest will
become celibate monks.
ITHE| BIRTH of the new
"god king" required the University Hospital to abide by
Tibetan customs as well as by
hospital regulations. A female
obstertrician was called upon
to deliver the baby because
Tibetan custom forbids the
presence of male attendants.
Also,   the   "Damo   La,"   or
holy mother, Jamyang Sak«
yapa, asked for "rooming in"
priveleges during her hospitalization. The baby sleeps m his
mother's room and is fed,
clothed and bathed by her. The
other Sakyapa children were
born at home, unattended.
The baby's parents, brothers
and three relatives are participating in studies of Tibetan
language, customs and culture
under the sponsorship of the
Far Eastern Department.
Dr. Turrell V. Wylie, assistant professor of Tibetan
studies, brought the Sakyapa
family and three of their relatives to the United States last
The family left with Dr.
Wylie from Darjeeling, India.
They fled to India last March
after an unsuccessful Tibetan
revolt against Communist rule.

Bisons buffaloed! by 'Birds
UBC takes top spot
in foul-filled folly
Jf Manitoba plays WCIAU football next year,  tht  first
place, they should look for players is the basketball te'ux.
Friday the Bisons started off  " ~
UBC THUNDERBIRDS Ken Winslade (left), Ed Pederson (on floor) and Dave Osborne (background) scramble for ball with Manitoba's Dave Mills. Birds won this game 60-40 and Friday's  encounter   72-54.
Prairie Dogs split
with hustling 'Birds
^ The UBC hockey Thunderbirds showed the old comeback
spirit Saturday night, when they rebounded after losing 11-2
td the U. of Saskatchewan Huskies to beat' the prairie dogs
5-2 in the sequel.
Thunderbird goalie Ron Molina was the hero of the second
game, stopping an astronomical
total of 56 shots, while allowing
only two goals.
In the first contest, the Birds
were travel-weary, as they had
left Vancouver at 3 a.m. the
same day. John Utendale had
scored the two lone UBC goals,
i But the next night, better-
rested and longing revenge, the
team pulled together and beat
the prairie athletes at their own
game. The Birds led 1-0 at the
end of period one. By the close
of the second, Saskatchewan
had closed the gap, and the
score stood at 2-2.
In the third period, hotshot
centre John Utendale was penalized for seven minutes, leaving
the UBC team shorthanded. But
in a magnificent job of penalty-
killing, the Birds scored twicer-
Boone St'rother scored the winner on a pass from Philips.
Then, while shorthanded, Bob
Parker slammed home two goals
to cinch the game. Bill Cherpeta
assisted   the  first   of   the   two.
UBC   played   the   whole   series ■ Room,
with only three defencemen. ———

The visitors held on to their
lead until just before the half.
They came back again in the
third quarter to regain the lead.
The final 10 minutes gave the
home crowd of 400 something to
! yell about.
The fired-up 'Birds dumped
through 24 points in the last
quarter to provide the margin
of victory.
High 'Bird for the night was
Ken Winslade- with 27 points,
Ed Pederson coming up second
with 14. Winslade also picked up
a bruised knee and a very sore
stomach, thanks to the efforts
of Don Kubesh. Fortunately for
the 'Birds however, Kubesh fouled out in the third quarter.
By Saturday night tempers
had cooled slightly. The contest
started off slowly and at the
10-minute mark UBC led 18-12.
Poor shooting and ball-handling hampered both clubs. Neither team was able to penetrate
the other's defence, keeping
shooting percentages down and
fouls high.
The excitement of the first
half came to a head when Wayne
Osborne and Don Kubesh squared off to have it out. Osborne,
in no mood to be tampered with
after a poor Friday night, had
caught another one of Kubesh's
uncontrollable    elbows    w h e n chuk 6, Gibson 4

Today we have some current news, only today the current
isn't very strong. Our old friend, the Western Canadian Intercollegiate (gasp) Athletic Union, is facing nnother trial,
Last week the University of Manitoba refused to enter a
football team in tihe league, putting the pressure on the league's
constitution. This week the UBC basketballers loafed to two
aiore easy wins, putting the pressure on UBC fans and officials.
From last year's games, and the four the Birds have played
this year, it is painfully evident that UBC is in a league which
can give them no competition. The poor (let's be factual—
busy) basketball is hurting the crowds and hurting the players
aven worse.
Fans won't turn out to see a game that is ragged and uncontested. They want to see close, fast, sharp, high-scoring basketball. The only thing fast and sharp about last weekend's game
*ere Don Kubesh's elbows.
And, as one downtown sportswriter ably pointed out last
week, the .Birds have one of the finest basketball teams in Canada, and no one to test their ability. It's a shame to see such
fine ballplayers as Ken Winslade playing before 300 people,
mostly friends and other UBC players.
The Birds entered the WCIAU presumably to lure fans and
support Canadian athletics. But the fans won't be lured to poof
*ames, and Canadian athletics won't support the Birds (witness
Basically, the WCIAU is a matter of dollars and sense. It
costs a whopping sum to send a team to the Prairies, money
that doesn't grow in MAC wallets. Every time it rains on a
Saturday afternoon in the fall, the bill-padders emeritus revise
the at'hletic budget.
The money has to come from somewhere. The smaller
sports' budgets are lopped 25 or 50 bucks, which to them is a
sizeable sum.
The football squad is in a three-team' league—a hopeless
The WCIAU earlier put out an ultimatum which, if carried
aut, would solve tihe league's troubles. If the U. of Manitoba
lidn't enter a football team, they said, they would be expelled
from the league. If this happened, the league would probably
If Manitoba entered a team, the league would be strengthened immensely, and would probably survive.
But the league apparently won't do what it says it will.
Manitoba says it won't field a football team (it had a pretty
good one here last weekend) and the league is backing down,
[t wants  to  continue  on  a  money-wasting,  fan-losing,   half-
learted basis.
WCIAU and UBC athletic officials refuse to say anything.
Ihey answer all questions by 9&ying nobody tells them anything, they don't know anything, and tiney don't know anybody
who knows anything.
They put the issue off, refusing to take action when inaction is costing them in money and support. Tbe WCIAU, trying
as it may be, is still a bush league. It's not going to change
until some action is taken.
And I would venture to say that the 'Birds in the Evergreen

Within the past few years our company has selected
a small group of sales-minded young college men to represent
Traders in the-many facets of the sales finance industry.
Because of the national scope of our organization
today and because many of our men in executive and managerial positions have been appointed from within our own
company, we again find it necessary to search for career-
minded individuals who have their sights set on the summit.
Traders is an all-Canadian sales finance company,
founded in Winnipeg in 1920 as the first independent company
of its kind.   Since then we have grown from one office to
almost 100 branches from coast to coast.
We are in the business of making credit plans
available to dealers in automobiles, trucks, boats, motors,
