Bid  for
rules fails
Despite an appeal by student
president Alan Cornwall to faculty council, anyone will be
eligible to run for office on the
second slate of the AMS elections.
Faculty council met Tuesday
and passed a set of eligibility
rules similar to .those passed by
council two weeks ago.
However, University president
Dr. Norman MacKenzie ordered
Wednesday that the rules be
ratified by the senate before
they come  into effect.
Cornwall went to faculty
council despite a council vote
against this action Monday.
Cornwall said he went to faculty council on his own initia:
five because he felt it was his
responsibility to see all steps
possible were .taken to protect
the student - body from having
members on the council who
.- cannot meet minimum academic
"After all," he said, "this is
an academic institution."
Registrar John Parnall told
student officials that the reg
ulations refer only to a student's
eligibility to hold office.
This means, he told The Ubyssey, that anyone may run for
office but must pass sessional examinations in April to hold office.
"The Faculty Council is not
interested in and doesn't want
to become involved in the mechanics of student elections," he
He said Faculty Council is interested only in making sure
that no students who cannot
meet minimum academic standards are holding office.
"A student not eligible now
may be eligible by June," he
added. "If a student is not a good
•student and is elected he won't
be able to take "office.
(Student Council takes office
in March of each year.)
Student treasurer Malcolm
Scott said Cornwall's referral of
the  matter   to Faculty   Council
was secretive, biased and a di-

in all but two polls. The third
candidate, Nick Omelusik, won
no polls.
Vote totals were: Stewart,
2412; Ricker, 1751; Omelusik,
Stewart said he will strive for
good relations with the new university administration and work
for increased funds for the new
student  union building.
"I knew the competition was
very strong," Stewart said,
"and I knew I would have to
work hard for my campaign.
"So I did."
He said he will push .for $2
million to increase the size of
UBC's proposed student union
building and will try for a more
cohesive student council, particularly among the executive.
"Everybody went into his own
little world this year," he said.
Defeated candidate Ricker
said he expects the hardest areas
for Stewart and the new council will be pushing for funds
for the , union building and
streamlining student government.
He said he is not planning to
run for the second slate office.
Ricker said he took his stronghold, Fort Camp, as expected.
Lavalle, former Associate
Editor of The Ubyssey, edged
Mike Hanson, Comm. 3, for second vice-president, after a recount in the closest race of the
first slate.
On the second count, Lavalle
led Hanson by thirty votes and
a recount was ordered. Lavalle
gained one vote on the recount
bringing his second ballot total
to 2107. Hanson had 2076 votes.
First ballot totals were: Lavalle 1596: Hanson 1485; Bob
MacKay,   Comm.  2,   1291.
Miss Bennett scored an
overwhelming victory over
Mariam Sapiro, Arts 3, in the
race for secrtary.
She topped every poll in rolling up 2956 votes. Miss Sapiro
gained  1426.

Peace   researcher  warns
'Fifteen years to halt atomic plague
A slight, bespectacled scientist Tuesday night told 2,000
people in the Armory the
world possibly has 15 years in
which to find a solution to war.
"We use research in all but
this area of war," Dr. Norman
Alcock told a rally ■ called to
kick off the B.C. fund drive of
the Canadian Peace Research
"If a plague were sweeping
across the world and going to
destroy the world in 15 years,
we'd have an enormous crash
program to stop the disease,'
he Said.

"Nuclear war is a plague."
Alcock,  a scientist,  quit his
$14,000 a year atomic research
job   at  Chalk  River,  Ont.,   to
promote peace.
Since then he has lived on
his own savings while trying to
get the CPRI on its feet. Its
present goal is $2 million from
public subscription, which Alcock hopes will be matched by
the Canadian government.

"It's almost as though the
idea (of peace) has come," an
enthused Alcock told his audience. "Groups everywhere
want to help."
Alcock said man has overcome human nature to the extent that no longer do families
fight families, tribes fight
tribes, or cities fight cities.
"Human nature has been
constrained in every other area
but between countries," he
"We're on the last rung of
the ladder  in   our  search  for
peace,"  Alcock told the rally.
"We have the tools of science

"Science has helped us in
every other field of research
and we must use research to
help rid us of the plague of
war," he said.
Alcock said the U.S. spends
$50 billion a year on armament.
"It spends $7 billion researching new armaments,
while putting only $2 million
a year into looking for ways
to prevent war," he explained.
"Does this- sound- like; a
world that has recognized that
war is no longer the final arbiter?
"A man from Mars could
look down on us and say,
'surely we are all insane.' "
Alcock said his institute
hopes to have 25 full-time,
workers by the end of this
year. Included will be econo*

and other experts who will

Few knew!!
Less than half the  active  members  of  the Alma  Mater
" Society have chosen three people to represent them for the
coming year.
It is a fair assumption that less than half of those who did
vote, knew the people they were voting for.
But, by some mysterious process, the democratic system
generally seems to produce competent people to hold elective
The small percentage who knew the candidates obviously
could not sway the election.
Therefore, the rest, basing their judgment on speeches,
if they heard them, and small printed statements in the paper,
chose the three victors.
How did they do it?
That's a gbod question. But it is a good bet that it was
the old name game.
The winners are the ones who succeeded in getting people
to remember their names.
They did this by the usual posters, speeches, and personal
contacts. But, in many cases, they did this almost equally well.
What would differentiate them, then?
The answer is obvious. The winner is probably the one
who got his name into The Ubyssey most often during the
How do you get your name in The Ubyssey? Well, either
you make news-worthy comments, (indicating you know the
issues and are prepared to take a stand) or you have friends

The first category shows innate legislative ability.
And the second. Well, anyone who has friends on the
Ubyssey editorial board must be good.
At any rate, The Ubyssey wishes the new executives the
best of luck, whether they fit this esoteric formula or not.
We also wish the students luck.
Letters to the Editor
Roller replies
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In connection with the recent anti-communist activity on
the campus, your paper referred to the former Sopron Division.
We feel that your opinion
of our political conception is
not accurate. Therefore I
would like to explain a few
points concerning our political
views to make clear our stand
in this interesting discussion.
1. No doubt the members of
the former Sopron Division
have been anti-communists.
However, that does not imply
responsibility to any party or
organization either right or
left. It does mean our ideas,
faith and convictions are based
not on the convictions of
others, but through direct experience with the reality and
the theory of Marxism and
Leninism. We had served a
Communist State for 12 years
as scientists, teachers and students.
2. There is definitely no official connection between the
recent anti-communist organization and the former Sopron
Division. Anyone who is participating in the activity of this
organization is doing so on his
own responsibility. The Sopron
Division was hot a political
group. It was the Institute of
Forestry Sciences in Hungary.
3. The Sopron people are
deeply grateful to the people
of Canada for giving them refuge and a new home. You may
be sure that no member of the
Sopron Division would take
part in any activity that would
restrict the peaceful development of this country.
In the past we lived under
a feudalistic capitalism. Then
there followed in succession
dictatorship, fascism, and finally communism. In 1956, after
the revolt against terror and
tyranny was defeated, we
chose the free democratic system of Canada, so that we
might enjoy the greatly desired
"basic freedoms" as established here.
Yours truly,
.   Former Sopron Division
Without prejudice!
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Some months ago a self-promoting freshman from Toronto
virtually forced himself upon
students during lectures in an
attempt to influence their voting for secretary-treasurer of
the Frosh Council in the then
forthcoming elections. I heard
him promise professors that he
would not take up more than
a minute's time. He took up
closer to five minutes at each
of the three lectures I attended
in one day. I considered these
interruptions real disturbances
and detrimental to the pursuit
of education.
If each candidate for the various offices had decided to do
the same as this promoter, lectures would have become interruptions of the speeches.
With a similar campaign underway at present, the same
type of interruption has started. Today a candidate for political offices was allowed to
speak to students at the time a
lecture was to start and took
up valuable time.
If candidates would arrange
for use of the auditorium to address   students   during   lunch-
time I feel it would be much
better than addressing them at
places and times   engaged for
them to carry out their primary purpose in being at UBC.
Then they can  see if students
really want to hear them.
Yours truly,
Arts I
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I have followed the recent
controversy in The Ubyssey
over the activities of the campus anti-communist society and
I think the attention you have
placed on the issue is praiseworthy.
I was struck by the contrast
in the rational (although occasionally misguided) arguments
of those defending the democratic rights of speech and assembly and the emotional,
twisted reasoning of their antagonists. However,  I was an
gered by  Geza  Benko's letter
in Friday's edition.
Mr. Benko's group disassociates itself from both Birch-
ers and Socreds, yet its recent
manifesto advocates the most
fascist and anti - democratic
practices of those groups. These
have been dealt with in pre:
vious letters. However, Mr.
Benko's is a special case to be
taken more seriously, since he
is a Hungarian refugee enjoying the freedoms of this nation
at its request, not as a birthright.
Mr. Benko raves about mass
slaughterings, sisters being
raped by Red soldiers, and
other things some of which The
Ubyssey could not print without being libelous.
It makes no difference to me
whether my sister is raped by
Red soldiers or by fanatics,
emotionally unstable Birchists
who accuse her of being a menace to society—the crime is
equally heinous. It makes no
difference to me who restricts
and denies my democratic
rights—Communists or Birch-
ist, he is unfit to cry '.'Arise,
young men."
Mr. Benko will at this point
accuse me of being inhospitable
and either communist or chauvinistic. Denying the latter
two, I will maintain my inhos-
pitality and outright antagonism to those who employ their
new-found freedoms to usurp
This is my country, Mr. Benko, these are my freedoms. If
you must pervert them, then
you have come to the wrong
Yours  sincerely,
Science IV.

Are we for CAPRI?
// peace equals communism, what does war equal?
It is by now apparent that
there is no problem more urgently needing solution than
that of preventing another
world war. Even the problem
of a population explosion seems
to diminhish before our major
task—the securing and maintaining of peace among nations.
3ft 3ft 3ft
Many possible solutions have
been' entertained but none so
far is even in the planning
stage, with the possible exception of a "preventive war!" An
international government to
put an end to the anarchy
among nations has long been
the dream of many political
It has also been the nightmare of John Birchers, other
isolationists and crackpots. Despite all our aspirations, the
tensions of the cold war have
increased. Most of us, by this
time, are apathetic or cynical
as regards the 'world situation.'
For most of our lives, we have
been embroiled in a war between the communist dream of
"From each according to his
ability,'to each according to his
need"; and the capitalist dream
of freedom from government
planning or pressure regarding
enterprise, speech and the pursuit of happiness. A nuclear
war, far from aiding either of
these dreams, would render
them both impossible of success. If there were any survivors, the code would be "kill or
be killed, eat or be eaten."
Does that sound like Security
of Freedom?
■*■ * *
A spark of sanity is afoot in
Canada and a glimmer of hope
may still be seen. It comes in
the form of the Canadian Peace
Institute headed by Dr. Norman Alcock and supported by
scientists. Pure research has no
political aims. It supports neither communism nor capitalism. Research has proven its
worth in medicine, industry
and weaponry. Now we have a
chance to see if it can work
for peace. It is hoped that physical and social scientists working in co-operation may be able
to supply governments and
citizens with facts relating to
the increase in tension, armaments and in the dangers of
art accidental war. Then it's up
to governments and citizens to
use all available facts in an attempt to avert a nuclear war.
Would it be possible to change
the economies geared to war
(in the USSR and USA) over
to economies geared to increased housing, schools, etc.,
without causing widespread unemployment or a depression?
After all. no one wants to lose
his livelihood. Research into
this and   other problems   may
provide some answer. Whatever their research uncovers,
it'll be immediately available
to all governments and all citizens.
Working with other peace
research institutes which our
CAPRI will help establish on
both sides of the iron curtain,
some way out of the mess may
yet be found. If there is time.
*     *     *
Money is needed to support
scientists who will work full
time on research and to help
establish peace research institutes in other countries. If we
can use science to kill us we
can use it to save us. Or at
least we can try.
It's probably unnecessary to
warn you to beware of the
lunatic fringe which rears its
ugly head whenever 'peace' is
mentioned and screams "communist". They did just that at
Tuesday's meeting in the Arm
ory. It seems they're associated
with the CIS.
The CIS, Canadian "Intelligence" Service is identical in
spirit with the J. Birch society
in the USA. Only it's worse.
Those who identify 'peace
with 'communism' and who
claim to be true 'patriots' are
a real danger to us. Benko may

groups can only harm his

from student
Student council will ask the
faculty, sub-committee on parking to keep Busters' tow trucks
out of student parking lots.
The request is embodied in a
proposal drafted by Law Undergraduate Society president Chas.
MacLean, which asks that the
present system of towing cars
from student lots be stopped and
that towing be limited to cars
parked on roadways in fire-
zones or in faculty-staff areas.
A refundable-deposit scheme
is recommended in the proposal
whereby students would deposit
$10 when issued parking stickers, and a dollar fine would be
deducted from this deposit every
time the student parked illegally
■ in a student lot.
MacLean said he thought the
student discipline committee
should deal with persistent offenders under this system.
The proposal also requests
that the present system of two
fines for one occasion (if you
bring an unstickered car on
campus and park it in a lot, you
are fined for two offences) foe
Other proposals include:
• That adequate provision be
made for the registration of temporary or substitute cars.
"•- • That courtesy tickets be
placed on improperly parked
cars in the period immediately
following fall registration.
• That adequate provision be
made for the release of impounded cars during the weekend.
• That student parking appeals be handled on a weekly
basis by a board of three members of the student council chaired by a member of the faculty.
• That all possible attention
be paid to the sensible allocation
of student parking on the basis
of convenience.

"Some matters about peace

the New Democratic Party.

said, "because they believe B.C.

his party had hoped to get 30

HALIFAX (CUP)—A lack of,
candidates has forced postponement of student council elections
at Dalhousie University.
Ken Myra, one of the council
members responsible for elections, told the Dalhousie Gazette that the constitution states
there must be at least two candidates for each position.
"We didn't have them," he
said "so' we had to postpone the
elections." The polls are now
scheduled to open Feb. 16.
Myra termed it a "terrible
disgrace" for a university the
size of Dalhousie not to have
people interested in running for
the posts.
Council president Dick Thompson blasted council members
themselves for "not getting people interested."
