of the English Department, in
a speech made in Engineering

Sponsored by the Civil Liberties
Union, the speaker said that private radio stations have fulled to
provide service to radio listeners.

Baker said that The Sun has die-

and TV stations has lent belief to

students how the first issue of the
November 5 edition of The Sun
which appeared on the streets contained a column by Jack Scott

Bear Sir,
Yesterday I was asked the following question by one of your
reporters "What do you think
of boys cicthes on (the campus?"
Not realizing that this was for
publication and not realizing that
I would lie taken seriously, I
jokingly criticised them.
My chance remark did not express .my true Opinion. In fact,
1 think that on the whole, the
hoys dness very well.
Your co-operation in correcting
this erroneous opinion will be

Whe March of Dimes is here again. The
engineers will be ottf once more chasing dimes
with all the ingenuity at their disposal.
Last year the engineers did well. They set
themselves a quota1 of ten cents per student
and managed to exceed it slightly. The very
fact, however, that their low estimate was so
pitifully correct is no credit to the student
body as a whole.
Students are proverbially poor. But the
poor also have a reputation of being generous
Where the more affluent are careful.
We need not elaborate here on the merits
of the March of Dimes scheme. This charity
drive has been on the campus throughout the
tanks. Maybe the Russians could. They apparently make the world's best tanks. But
then the Russians do not have to sublimate
their tank building urges in replicas.
We are making tanks; the Americans are
making tanks and so are the British and the
French, but apparently our tanks are inferior.
We are quite sure we cannot field# quite as
good a tank, low of silhouette and with angles
quite as oblique as this German masterpiece.
The Germans used to make the world's best
toy trains. They had ears thit would not fall
off tables, remote control cars, cars that would
roll out of garages at the sound of a password.
All they have brought to Vancouver now is
this Mark X Tiger and a US Military Constabulary jeep.
Drawing up arguments that warlike toys
for children develop warlike adults is a game
as old ns the hills.
The truth probably is that the adults like
playing war more than their offspring of
tender years. If a child were to hurt its
finger on tho unfinished edges of a space-guh
($3.85 model), it would probably-never touch
that particular gun again. His father, however, has probably burned his fingers in two
wars and is joyfully playing with fire again.

whole continent long enough to be a household word.
We do feel, however, that it would be
advisable to stress that the March of Dimes
is not limited exclusively to dime coinage
and that the engineers will be only too happy
lo accept any multiple of that coin even if it is
only Bank of Canada paper.
Students have been hard hit by inflation,
but children's hospitals have been hit as hard
if not harder. If, then, you would ordinarily
feel like giving the obligatory dime, think
again and pull out that quarter, or, to make
it even, that dirty dollar bill you did not
want anyway.
Editor, The Ubysey,
iDenr Sir,
Everyone seems to have agreed
with the co-eds who recently
uccused the "spiritless" Engineers of sloppy dress, lt is generally admitted that most of the
sciencemen are "pretty scrubby."
Meanwhile, the average Engineer can only ask, "But what's
there to dress tip for? The average co<ed?  Hah!"

In the middle of the "Books by

Editor, The  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Regarding the plan for student exchange between tbe
USSR and Canada, lt was quite
evident last year, I believe, that
the greater majority of students
on this campus were overwhelmingly ln favor of such a plan.
Tliere is no reason to suppose
a change In attitude this year;
on the contrary, the students are
more and more realizing the importance of such a step, Yet
when Raghbir Basi represented
these same students at the
NCFUS conference, lie voted
against the resolution for Soviet-
Canadian student exchange. He
did this on the grounds of saying
the unity of XCFI'S. Ills stand,
taken in the view of the'endorsation of the proposal in the student body, he represented, bears
some explanation.
Mr. Basl's silence since his return from the confeience Ikir
frankly puzzled me. Surely some
justification of his actions buck
east is warranted. He may have
ninde a report to the Council
but I think Mr. Basi should give
some account to the students
ln spite of the lack of proper
publicity given this student exchange plan in the I)byssey, the
students are keenly interested
in the affair. They are waiting
for Raghblr tlasi's statement.

Your article that appeared in
Tuesday's Ubyssey dealing with
the so-called engineer's "sloppi-
ness" is untimely and uncalled
We realize that your scandal
sheet is always short of copy,
and this fact plus your anti-engineer sentiment, ls what probably prompted you to point out
un only too well known fact.
It may be true that -we do not
dress as fashionably as we
should; but tben again, we may
have reasons for appearing as
clothes-conscious as we do. Such
reasons are:
(1) The nature of our work.
Suits and. ties may be fashionable
for lectures, but for surveying,
hydraulics, labs, etc, they Jijat
don't lace. Besides it's always
pveferable to slap acid over an
old pair of cords than a suit.
\2) We feel more natural not
wearing clothes.
We're social outcasts anyway,
so thexe's not much point In
dressing up for the rest of the
(4) We've got a reputation, so
wo might as well keep lt up.
Looking around the campus It
Is readily apparent that the
engineers aren't the only sloppy
dressers around here. Just look
at some of the Proah classes.
More power to them.
As for the co-eds that brought
about all this needless furore,
may 1 remind them of the very
popular saying; "Ninety percent
of the B.C. girls are beautiful and
the other 10 percent go to Var-
sity.'' People who live in glass
houses «honldn't throw rocks.
In closing, may I remind you
that: "We don't give a damn for

In Public Recreation
UBC has established
another milestone in the field
of education.
Twenty-nine students from
nine provinces and t H e
N.W.T. are registered for the
first National Diploma
Course in Public Recreation,
sponsored by the National
Council on Physical Fitness
in conjunction With the University of British Columbia.
This course is designed to
>p<rovide professionally
trained leadership in the field
of public recreation.
There has been a boom in
recreation throughout Canada since the end of World
War II. This rapid expansion
of recreation programs has
created an urgent need for
qualified leaders, especially
in the rural and small urban
areas of the country.
This one year Diploma
Course in Public Recreation

is a significant stride towards
meeting this need.

they will study English, Sociology, the Organization and
Administration of Recreation
Programs, Public Speaking,
Professional Writing, Public
Relations, Drama, Music, Art
and Crafts, Social Recreation.
Physical Recreation, plus
field trips throughout the
greater Vancouver area to
study programs and facilities
here on the west coast. At
the completion of the University year the students will
be placed in communities for
eight weeks of supervised
field work.
Graduates will return to
their own provinces to take
positions in the field of recreation in rur'al and small
urban areas. The training
received at the university
should enable them to make
a major contribution to the
welfare of their communities.
A large gathering of students
were treated to a very lusty performance of modern jazz by the
Hay Norris Quintette on Wednesday at noon in the Auditorium. The group, led by guitarist
Norris, featured Chris Gage piano, Bete Watts drums, Cuddles
Johnson bass, Frtiz McPherson
clarinet and Hoy bowden on the

The group ueed the same basic
approach as the Oeorge Shearing
Quartette, playing the theme in
unison at the beginning and end,
with euch member of the group
taking a chorus In tyle middle.
A« far as individual soloists
were concerned vlbraphonlst Ray
Lowden and pianist Chris Gage
appealed most to thb reviewer
although I think it can be safely
stated that nil the performers
displayed excellent taste and execution.
The only adverse criticism 1
cnn offer is that the selections
tended at times to be slightly
repetitious, flue to tbe fact that
the group used the same pattern
for every number. I could probably be Interjected that this is
due to the fact that the Norris
-arrangements were written for
the precise demands of radio,

have seen leader Norris let the

Visits to the Mufllc Appreciation Club and the Jatssoc on

around the campus — Stan Cross,
the'president of the MAC, and
Martin Toren, president of the

classical   music   in   their   noon

The Mock Parliaments, sponsored by the Parliamentary Forum,
are designed to give campus politi-

which they differ in an atmosphere
and under a procedure similar to
that in the House of Commons.

attract more students interested

olunioiuy  bave  been  omitted.
Ernest Winch, CCF MLA
for Burnaby, told the campus
CCF fclub Wednesday that a
drug addict is not to blame for
his intolerable craving.
Winding up a well documented
survey of the drug addiction situation in Canada and other countries.
Mr. Winch scored the present
methods of treatments and attitudes which prevail in this country.
"Most people are criminals after
tliey have become drug addicts
not before," he'said. "Iu the US und
Canada the underworld has the
dope market almost exclusively to
themselves. The evidence Is that,
given assurance of a regular aup-
ply of drugs, the addict will not
revert to crime, but can become «i
socially valuable citizen. Most of
them want to be cured and will
work at curing themselves if given
a chance."
Hitting at some of the statements made by former RCMP sun-
erintendeiit Wilson, Mr. Winch
said, "The general opinion that
most drug addicts come from the
lower classes is false. Skidroad
arrests are easy, convictions frequent because the addicts collect
there, repeatedly. Professional and
business ranks are more difficult
to penetrate and evidence is harder to gather".

UBC student's will gather in the armouries at noon Friday
in a special AMS meeting to discuss athletics and will be
presented with the most drastic changes in the athletic system
since the Ostrom plan qaitte into force.   *
A group of student* will present i>-
recommendations  at  the  meeting
(Signed)  PETER LUSZTIG. Secretary-MAD,
advocating that control of athletics
be returned to the students. ,
As a result of the Ostrum Finn,
an Athletic Director was hired by
the administration to run UBC athletics. After Bob Robinett, the Athletic Director, resigned, the administration appointed Dick Penn,
a member of the School of Physical Eduction, as Acting Athletic
Ajm of the recommendations to
be presented Friday Is that the
Athletic Director be responsible
to the Students' Council and hot
to the Faculty of Physical Education.
Here are the recommendations
which   will  be  presented   to   stu-
JOHN WARREN, shown above in his single shell, will be at the bow of the Senior Varsity
boat when the Thunderbird crew meet the University of Oregon oarsmen Saturday
morning on Coal Harbour.   It's free,' fans, and good seats are available in Stanley Park.
The Student Body of the University of British Columbia recommend THAT:
The Athletic program at UBC
popularly called the Ostrum Plan*
be ammended to Incorporate the
following recommendations
(1) A permanent athletic .dlrec
tor be appointed who Shall be responsible to the Board of Governors and Students' Council
through the Men's Athletic Council
as now constituted, end not
through the School or Physical Education,
(2)*The Athletic Director-shall
be a man capable of, directing
extra-mural athletics, and aboil
have the qualifications necefcaiy
for coaching a football team.
(3> The athletic Director shall
be appointed op the recommendation of the Men's Athletic Council,
with the Approval of Students'
Athletic competition with other
Canadian Universities be encouraged by supporting the re-fornu-
tion of tha Western fnter-Provinel--
ul football Union, and the playing
of. games with other Canadian universities when and where feasible.
* Insofar as certain members of
the Evergreen Conference are violating Conference regulations
which are contrary to the principles ot college sportsmanship, we
deiiuuul the enforcement of all existing regulations to the fullest
possible extent and If assurance of
this enforcement cannot be obtained THAT UBC tender Its with-
drawtil from the Conference..
A ( a d e m i c requirements for
athletes be rlftidly enforced, but
the Senate be requested to postpone their ruling with respect to
the participation of freshmen aii'l
other students on the campus for
their iirst year in competitive and
InterColleglate  athletics.
Thunderbird Crew Up For Big Championship Race Saturday
The CMC Varsity and .IV, crews
have swung Into their final week
preparing for the race against
Oregon Slate this Saturday. In
l!n> chance thai the water condl-
tionw might lie better in the mdrn-
ing, Coach Frank Head has decided, to advance the starting time to
1i>::iii  on   Saturday   morning.
The Oregon Crews will arrive
at the Vancouver Rowing Club Friday afternoon i.ind will have their
11 mil workout then. When, tliey
have become accustomed to thc
shells and have stretched their
riir-cratiiped muscles, they will
lit'-.nl out lo their billets at Acadia
In tiie meantime, the Thunder-
hints have stepped up their already
rlaorous trafnlug program. Since;
it is getting dark mi early in the j
evenings, tho Birds have been;
forced to take to the water In He j
mornings. If you happen to he down I
by Coal Harbor or riding the North
Vancouver Ferry at li: I", in the;
morning, you will probably see;
two frail shells and >.i coach boat.
skimming madly over the icy;
mi fer.
The .sixty-foot "cockle shells' are
each being propelled by eight
powerful oarsmen, wlio nre pulling
with everything they've got, striving to attain that peak of condition
nnd endurance which will inuki
all the difference this Saturday.
I'nder the critical eyp of "Simon
Legree"     Read,     these     boys    ai\i
steadily putting more punch in
their' stroke! and developing the
guts  needed  for crew  racing.
It is expected that the police
boat will he on hand to keep liar
bor craft away from the course.
The ci.urse which extends 2fiW.
metres (about one and a quarter
miles) will start off the end of the
CPR dock, and will finish right outside the Vaucouver Rowing -Club
at the very end of Coal Harbor.
For the last three quarters of a
mile lhe course is easily visible
trom either Stanley Park or the
Vancouver Rowing Cluh (spectators idinitted free! and the first
half mile will be observed through
binoculars and broadcast to the
spectators. The JV  race will start
promptly at 10:3-0 and will be followed closely by the Varsity race.
On Saturday night the winning
row of the Varsity race will 'be
-awarded the "Egg Cup." the trophy
that-, has gained fume- right down
lhe Pacific Cftnst. It will be presented during a banquet at the
Vancouver Rowing Club which will
be given in honor of the Oregon
crews. This will be followed by a
private dance. *
This is your big chance! If yon
have never seen a rowing race this
is the best opportunity you will get
this year. These are two of Hie Tin
est and most evenly matched
crews on this coast— and it won't
tost you anything, yet!
In considering these recommendations one point should
always be kept in mind. The Ostrom Plan was inspired, born
and conceived by losing football.
Was the plan, or is the plan successful? One cannot deny
that certain improvements have been made. The administration
of athletics had never been better. Great savings have -been
nade through new purchasing methods and by using administration bookkeeping facilities. The mechanics of the plan are
excellent, and whoever is responsible for setting them up
deserves a great vote of thanks from the students. Even footbaU
is not losing money (i.e. spending more than its MAD grant).
However, the mechanics of the Plan lacks dynamics.
What is wrong with Athletics at UBC? Except for the
two big spectator sports, football and for the past five years
basketball, nothing is wrong. There are many reasons for their
troubles, but they can be narrowed, for the sake of argument,
to<two; (1) the competition; (2) the administration. Both" of
these are covered in the recommendations.
Regardless of who coached our football team, or who played
on, it, UBC could not compete with the American oolleges lit
football unless: (1) we bought a football team; (2) English
rugger was abolished until after mid-November. It has therefore been proposed by many including the present temporary
Athletic Director that we enter into inter-Canadian university
competition. Ii and when such a league was formed I doubt
if it wou!4 be opposed. Council also recognised this problem
and has suggested that a proper enforcement of Conference
rules will make Conference football more competitive. These
are two realistic approaches to the problem of competition.
The second point to consider is the administration of
Athletics. On this point mo§t controversy arises. At the present
time I do not think it can be denied that the attitude of the
Administration towards athletics is hostile. No doubt they have
legitimate fears, visions of basketball scandals, and a dislike
for the creeping of American commercialism into UBC athletics.
But if this is so I think they should come out and say it. If this
is so they should come out and ban America^ football,-rather
than strangle it with unpopular, and largely unnecessary eligibility rules. It may be that with the renewal of Canadian university football Administration policy will change. This is lo
be hoped. '. •   '
'^t present the Administration is sitting on Athleties, That
is what I mean when I say the mechanics of the Plan has Ao
dynamics. The dynamic leadership and dynamic interest of this
Students should be restored. If the administration do not want
to do anything witn athletics let the students do it! That is
Why it is felt that the Athletic Director should riot be responsible
to the Director of'the School of Education. He should be made
more responsible to the Students' Council, President of MAD
should be made more responsible for the operation of athletic^
Students have come to rely too much on Administrative
personnel in their athletics. Who do you go to if you want to
know anything about the Athletic program? Not Gerry Main,
president of MAD, but Dick Penn, the Athletic Director. Hoyr
do you find out how much your coaches are being paid with
your money? You can't. That is decided by a confidential
faculty meeting. These are a few points to keep in mind when
considering the recommendations. The student pays the bill,
the student should regain some of the lost control.
