OFFICIAL MR. UGLY of UBC is fourth year Forestry student Al Sawby (bottom) being congratulated at Saturday night dance by ugliness appreciater Jan Walker and friend Frank
Whitwell. (Unofficial winner is shown on page 5.) The week-long contest was sponsored by
the Inellectual Stunt Committee to raise money for the Tibetan Relief Fund. Frosh class wasn't
ugly enough to win, but they contributed $100 from surplus.

It has been estimated that at
least half a million dollars will
be saved UBC students by t h e
income tax changes announced
in Finance Minister Donald
Fleming's  1961  "baby budget."
These are the figures Scott, as
council treasurer, endorsed a
week ago Monday.
Anderson talked of a further
income tax development as the
next NFCUS project. This
would see a student being able

So goes the slogan of a current lively campus enterprise
which is promoting the sale of copies of some of last year's
first and second year final exams.  "And  they're going like
hotcakes," says the scheme's promoter, Steve Whitelaw.

as mere changes in wording,

Pickard and Wayne McDonald,
started selling copies of the English 100 exam on Friday.
They set up shop in front of
the college library and in the
Buchanan building, offering the
exams for sale at 15 cents apiece.
"We sold over a hundred in
the couple of hours we were
operating on Friday," Whitelaw
told The Ubyssey Monday.
The group has now enlarged
its business and is selling copies
of 1961's final exams in Math
120, Physics 101 and English
The entrepreneurs, all in first
year engineering, launched the
venture after they had' duplicated copies of last year's first
year engineering exam for their
class and had found they sold
very quickly.
"So we decided to expand
and English 100 seemed the logical field to make a start in,"
Whitelaw said.
"I was actually surprised the
exams sold as well as they did
but I guess that April 11 being
so close is pretty good advertising for our product.".
Some students thought White-
law and his friends were part
of another election but on seeing their sign, "1961 Final
Exams 15c—save $346," stopped
to investigate.
"I think they're an enterprising bunch," said Dave Varley,
Arts 2.
"Fine idea,'' said Roger Lun-
dy, Science 2.
"It would be better if they
had the exams for this year,"
commented Karen Sorenson,
Arts 1.
Don Suthereland, Arts 4, took
a practical view. "Since the
business is going so well I think
they should be charging more,"
he said.
The Ubyssey asked several
professors what they thought of
the venture.
Said English professor Elliott
Gose: "I think it's a far better
idea than trying to get the student's money by selling those
crib notes."
And professor M. K Morton
added: "It's a good idea for
freshmen to get a look at exams
but it tends to give them a false
sense of security.
"I feel that this is just exploitation of exam-conscious students
who are probably far more worried than they need be."
Space  research

seys   U.S. expert
A top American atomic scientist told the Vancouver Institute
at UBC Saturday that research
into manned space flight is a
waste of money and men.
Dr. Alvin W. Weinberg, director of the Oak Ridge Tenn. National Laboratory; said discoveries in this field are too remote
from human affairs and other
sciences to rate the money and
men they require.
"Only those fields of science
that have relevance to the broad
aims of human welfare deserve
large-scale public support," said
Dr. Weinberg, a member of President Kennedy's advisory committee on science. Men are scarcer than money, he added.

Ubyssey reporter gets bang out of Krestova
The Ubyssey, in line with its
policy of keeping the students
fully informed on all the
nudes, has sent ace sports reporter Mikhail Sonobovitch to
the Kootenays to give UBC
students an eyewitness account of terrorist activities in
the area. Here is his first report.
Ubyssey Private Ear
KRESTOVA (Staff) — A
deathlike pall hangs over the
Kootenays today, only a few
short days and several tedious
nights after the terrorist bomb
ing of a 300-foot transmission
tower near here.
The residents of this normally peaceful village nestled
between snow-capped peaks
walked the streets restlessly
this morning, after hearing
that terrorists (possibly Sons
of Freedom Doukhobours)
were planning further demonstrations.
The demonstrations are believed to be in retaliation for
the arrest and conviction of
two Doukhobour housewives
for sect in a public place.
I spent all morning talking
with the terrified residents of
this peaceful village. "We are
terrified," a spokesman said.
The members of the town-
council, composed of Kres-
tova's foremost citizens and
led by mayor Tom Dropkoff,
held an extra-ordinary meeting in Joe Vichkoff's hardware
store this morning.
Their objective: to finalize
plans for a Kootenay Ban-the-
Bombs Club.
"We refuse to put up with
this kind of thing any longer,"
said a spokesman for the
"We're going to petition the
federal government, demanding that they provide us with
nuclear arms," he said.
"All the provincial government talks about is Peace,"
he said, "But they're unwilling
to do anything to get it."
As he said this, several
members of the group left the
shop, their pockets bulging
with  strange-looking . objects.
"Lapel buttons," explained
the official. "The inscription
looks something like a chicken's foot, but actually it represents a Bomarc missile." Page 2

Mardi Gras
The Ubyssey would like to congratulate the Greek letter
societies on their donation of almost $6,000 to the Crippled
Children's Society.
This money represents the proceeds from various aspects
of the Greek's annual extravaganza Mardi Gras and this year's
donation apparently set a new record.
We hear many voices crying that Mardi Gras is nothing
but a drunken orgy. We've had several people'telling us this
personally. They all receive the same reply: Prove it. They
could not.
The Ubyssey has often been accused of being anti-Mardi
Gras especially when we ask the Greeks how much money
they gave to the Crippled Children, or if they had any trouble
at the dance.
They completely ignore the fact that we regularly direct
the same questions to almost any other campus group holding
a function of a similar nature. Last year we ran a story, complete with pictures, when the RCMP raided the Farmer's
Frolic, and no one accused us of bejing anti-Aggie!
Well, as we started out to say, congratulations to the Greek
letter societies on their contribution to a very deserving organization.
More meat
The auditorium cafeteria is an interesting place. One meets
all kinds of fascinating people there. But there are those (like
us) who go to the cafe tq get something to eat, because of hunger or something like that.
We (arid others) noticed something strange on Monday.
Beef stew was selling for 60 cents. By itself this is quite normal but considering that beef stew usually retails at 40 cents,
we were moved to question the dietician on this matter.
"Sometimes we serve it one way, sometimes another,"
she said. "We order more meat when we have the 60-cent
Upon hearing tiiat we were getting four pieces of meat,
the^same as with the 40-eent meal, she told us that four pieces
of meat shouldn't have been given with the cheaper meal.
"You always get your money's worth," she added.
On the whole the food at the caf is fairly good. The mashed
potatoes and gravy are really excellent.- But when it comes
to meat, both quality and quantity, we occasionally wonder
if we are getting our money's worth.
We understand the caf (with the other food services)
makes a profit. It's 3* pity the profit couldn't be cut down in
favor, say, of five pieces of stew. -r-MG.

Aid   pleas
Thursday is the day set for the annual AMS. general meeting and 1881 students must atttend in order to get anything
done. That's tihe size of the quorum.
All constitutional changes and revisions proposed by council will come up for student ratification at that time. This is
the one time during the year council goes to the student body
for guidance.
Council works all year conducting the routine business
of the society. The general meeting is the only chance it has
to get the view of the cross section of the campus. The student
body would be seriously aipiss if it did not take two hours of
its time to aid its elected officers who spend anywhere from 20
to 60 hours per week in their jobs.

The Ubyssey,
May I correct one error
which appeared in your otherwise correct account of my
speech about the movie "Operation Abolition." You reported
that I resented a questioner's
inference that I had participated in the demonstration depicted in the film. However, that
is not what I objected to.
I stated my resentment to a
slur made by the questioner in
the course of reading from an
FBI report. He hinted that I
was a member of one of the
groups proscribed by the head
of the FBI. Since I am not and
have never been a member of
any of the groups designated, I
take objection to the inference.

Nuclear arms - a matter of life and death
Canada — a country in search of a policy
The Varsity
. University of Toronto
Toronto,   Ont.
The thesis of Canadian neutralism is based on
three assumptions, all of doubtful validity.
The first is the assumption that there is such
a thing as diplomatic credit among nations; thatv
there is a respect in international society for
previous performance which, tided over to another
day, entitles a government to sympathetic consideration for future policy But the consequences of
the behaviour of nations are very different from
the consequences of the behaviour of individuals.
A Schweitzer or a Ghandi may impress mankind
with his capacity for courage and selfless service;
but the motives of government are always suspect,
and properly so.
The second assumption underlying the neutralist argument is that Canada is somehow uniquely
qualified to play the part of peacemaker among
the new nations of Afro-Asia.
Canada is not without qualifications. We were
one of the few countries salvaging something from
the shambles of Suez, namely, a world-wide reputation for resourceful and disinterested diplomacy.
One cannot trade on a single achievement, even of
this magnitude, for ever; and our .prestige is on
the wane, if it has not yet disappeared. A more important qualification is conferred by years of faithful service in Indo-China and in the Middle East,
making available for similar service in future a
sizable group of experts experienced in the exacting tasks of maintaining order where there is neither war nor peace.
Beyond this, however, our vaunted qualifications for peacemaking are largely illusory. Expectations much too great have been reared on the
flimsy foundation of our claim to be free from
what the Afro-Asians mean by "colonialism." The
treatment of our own aboriginal population does
not compare particularly favorably with the record
of Western powers in their colonial possessions; we
have withheld the franchise from Indians and Eskimos nearly as long as our French and Belgian
allies withheld it from Algerians and Congolese,
while spending less on their welfare; this is understood by Afro-Asian leaders haying any interest in
the matter, even if they are too polite to point it
The soldiers-policemen-diplomatists of UNEF
and the truce commissions are handicapped by the
inescapable fact of their white complexions; Canadians in the Congo have already been subjected to
assault and humiliation on this account by those
whose interests they came to serve, and even the
antiseptic Swedes have smelled too strongly of
colonialism to find much favor there. Our national
and foreign policy traditions are, on balance, liabilities rather than assets for this kind of work.
We are unlikely to develop a taste for intervening
in Latin American disputes. In quarrels with Commonwealth nations we are reluctant to pass judgment, let alone intrude troops. Our membership in
NATO will be, as it has been, exploited to t h e
detriment of our good offices in. any if not most
of the situations where they are most urgently
needed. Even the surviving symbols of the British
connection proved almost fatal to Canadian participation in UNEF in 1956; while our association with
France may yet disqualify French-speaking Canadians from useful work where la mission civilafrice
is ill-remembered by its legatees
The third assumption of the neutralist argument is that our close association with the United
States stands in the way of more effective use by
its Afro-Asian contracts. It may be true, as some
reports from the United Nations have had it, that
there   are   Afro-Asian governments   distrustful   of
Canada for too close association with American
policy. It is also true that other Afro-Asian nations
—more powerful and more sophisticated—valued
their contact with Canada precisely because of
what they believe to be our influence with the
United States.
To write off neutralist sentiment in Canada
as crankish or aberrational is a major misinterpretation of the public mood in the lS60's. Canadian ■
neutralism is feeding on ambitions and discontents
lying very deep within the national consciousness.
It has a respectable intellectual foundation. It has
sponsors within trie establishment. It is all very
well for the secretary of state for external affairs
to say that Canadians will have nothing to do with
neutralism because they are not that kind of people; not only are more and more Canadians having
a great deal to do with it, Mr. Howard Green him- "
self expresses something of the neutralist ideology
when he argues that we should not acquire nuclear
weapons because the Afro-Asian nations might not
approve. As for the opposition, the Liberal party,
running like frightened rabbits before the neig-
matic New Party of the Left (which has taken much
of the neutralist program as its own), has already
declared itself for a kind of hair-splitting neutralism, arguing in the oracular tradition of Mackenzie
King that we should have "NORAD if necessary
but not necessarily NORAD."
The spirit of the neutralist assault on the very
foundations of Canadian foreign and defence policies in wholly admirable. It is just this kind of
fresh and fearless examination of fundamentals
which is needed to keep a nation running before
the winds of change, instead of heading into them,
or luffing hopelessly in the squall, or even being
engulfed by the waves. It may even be that some
of its arguments, now lacking validity, will one day
come into their own.
To Bomarc or not to Bomarc?
The current debate over
arming Canada's Bomarcs with
nuclear warheads provides a
good example of the muddled
thinking which bedevils every
attempt to find a simple route
out of the vicious circle of the
international arms race
Those who suggest that Canada should not join the "Nuclear Club" argue that there
are sufficient members already
and that Canada's possession of
the keys of nuclear weapons is
merely adding one more trigger
oyer which fingers can become
xitchy; Some adopt a high moral
tone, suggesting that Canada
jshould not sully herself with
the possession of armed missiles. Others would have Canadians train to use nuclear devices but not possess them as
part of our national armoury.
This peculiar anomaly they
would defend as being safer for
the world. Those members of
the group who are aware of the
need for national readiness
qualify the above by adding
that if the rockets are to be
armed, there should be enough
of them to protect the vastness
of Canada's North.
It must be remembered that
those who hold to the positions
we have attempted to outline
above are entirely sincere; but
it must also be remembered
that those who oppose them are
no less sincere. The professional soldier has more reason to
wish for peace than the confirmed pacifist. He who has
killed at long or short range is
fully aware of the enormity of
his act, especially if he has
risen to a position sufficiently
responsible to advocate the
arming for Bomarch.  Soldiers
are not callous; they are intensely practical. This practicality
takes the form of saying that an
unarmed Bomarc is as pointless
as a water-pistal without water;
that Canada's North is not a
large welcome mat, but an area
' defensible at certain key points;
that to keep an army and not to
equip it with the most modern
weapons available is analagous
to sending policemen armed
with truncheons against bank-
robbers with revolvers. Moreover, the Army's sense of discipline is outraged by the idea
of surrendering its responsibility for the nation's survival
to idealistic amateurs.
This puts the other camp in
the position of having to fire
the armed services in ioio as
irresponsible madmen (incidentally creating an unemployment
situation of some magnitude)—
a position which most Bomarc-
haters eschew.
Without going into the problem of controlled disarmament, on which the world has
proved its inability to agree, it
must be admitted that every
sane person wishes devoutly for
disarmament and peace, but
few wish to render themselves
vulnerable and trust that the
other side will obligingly play
a lion-lying-down-with-the-lamb
act. Simplifying the question
into a slogan of "Better Red
than Dead", or vice versa, will
not help, as it suggests that
there are no chances of compromise.
This is not to suggest that the
present situation in the UN of
much peace-talk, but little
peace action is a beneficial one.
However, it is not merely a
question of refusing to climb
Canada must be aware that
her duties as a member of
NATO (not to speak of NORAD) do not allow her to take
an abstentionist tone. Neither
the moral nor the practical reasons cited above can be of
greater weight than the obligations entered upon in a treaty.
To hold to these obligations
means taking on the arduous
responsibility of having control
of nuclear arms.
Thus, if we disarm completely, in accordance with the
best unilateralist traditions, we
court disaster. If we keep an
ill-equipped army, we let down
our NATO allies and weaken
,our defenses. If we arm the
Bomarc, and continue in the
spirit of this precedent, we at
least give ourselves a position
compatible with our claims to
nation status. This will, it is
true, tend to perpetuate the
stalemate with the East. But by
the same token, it will help
stabilize the balance of the
East. But by the same token, it
will help stabilize the balance
of terror. On the foundation of
such equilibrium, we can begin
to erect plans for a disarmament that will be controlled,
mutual, free of the suspicions
that dog the present conferences, and a great deal safer
than impetuous "go-it-alone"
It is risky — but less risky
than the other alternatives.- It
is practical and practicable. It
is idealistic, but not completely
suicidal. It is action, rather
than an addition to the heady
cloud of platitudes now clouding the vision of the UN.

Stacks of literature
deluge 'big science
'Big science" is threatening to bury scientists, the administrator of a large U.S. national laboratory told a UBC audience.
Dr. Alvin W. Weinberg, director of the 5000-man atomic
research team at Oak Ridge, Tenn., said the mere volume of
literature on scientific subjects is so vast that scientists have
to spend all their time reading.
He said "big science" has be
come the prestige symbol in our
society and it is being expanded to enhance national prestige,
rather in a real search for scientific truth.
The atomic scientist, who took
part in the birth of "big science"
in 1942 when the first controlled
nuclear chain reaction was performed by a University of Chicago research team, said scientists are being snowed under by
the proliferation of projects the
new interest provide money for.
He said scientists are becoming publicists and journalists to
gain public support, and hence
money, for their pet projects.
The greying scientist said
there are now 80,000 scientific
journals and there should be one
million by 1980.
"Scientists will spend more
and more time reading and less
and less time contributing," he
He said there are now 40 million volumes in the Library of
Congress, and it takes the staff
eight years just to dust them.
He said the less-circulating
journals are stored in bins, "un-
catalogued, unread, and un-
Ke said a major danger is
that big science — which because
of its popular appeal makes it
easier to spend money than
think — will invade the universities.
It would be disastrous if professors were turned into publicists and administrators rather
than thinkers and researchers.
He said choices must be made
because society cannot afford to
go on spending vast amounts of
money and men on big science.
He said that big science must
also devote more effort to projects that contribute tri human
"Other societies which devoted too much of their' efforts to
erecting symbols that had little
to do with human aspirations
fell upon evil days," he said.
Dr. Weinberg listed other dangers of "big science" as:
• makng it easier to spend
money instead of thought in
scientific research;
• producing a science dominated by administrators ("Science
dominated by administrators
tends to become diluted, if not
• persuading scientists to ignore important small-scale projects in favor of more glamorous work.

ally operate flying saucers have
been supplanted this time by
Mechanical Engineers of Manitoba.
The flying saucer, otherwise
known as a hovercraft, was built
by two students, Bob Harisin and
Bill Schmidt, with the help of
engineering instructors. '
Standing about two feet high, j
the nine-foot diameter hover-1
craft floats along about six j
inches off the ground on a cush- j
ion of air. j
There are no wheels on this >
craft-of-the-future and it is cap-j

The students  constructed the j
350-pound craft out of plywood, i
fibreglass, and  aluminum. It is i
powered by an eight horsepower j
go-kart engine and a propeller.
The   machine   can   transport   a
man   over  water,   snow or any
fairly level surface. Steering of
the craft is accomplished by the
operator   who   leans  his   direct

In a test flight, the machine

winds when it left its sheltered
area, but functioned normally

This is the problem that is being faced today by tiny Fin-
id   as   preparations   continue   to   steamroll   ahead   for   the
ghth Festival of Youth and Students. Despite the protests
Finnish students and youth movements, the organizers are
amant about holding their meeting in this Baltic Sea coun-

,d yet this is where the hun-

istival of Youth and Students,

Finland decided to issue a
atement for public consump-
"When the Finnish youth or-
inizations heard that plans
ere afoot to hold the 8th Fest-
-al in Finland, they decided
ot to participate in the Festival

ious festivals had precipitated
rong political conflicts. This
ecision was communicated to
le Organizers of the festival in
ood time.
"The decision of the National
fnion of Students of Finland

rid that of the Council of Finish Youth Organizations (SNE),
j which all Finnish youth or-
anizations belong, was reached
y a majority of more than 90

ouncil of Finnish Youth Organ-
jations is the only one in Finland claiming to represent youth

The National Union of Stud-

"Before the meeting of the
yrganizers finally decided on
Helsinki as the site of the 8th
festival, the then Prime Minister
3f Finland, Dr. V. J. Sukselain-
sn, issued an official statement
to the press, from which the
following is an excerpt:
"Since all our youth organizations but one have declared
that they will not take part in
this project, the event will be a
meeting for one „ ideological
group only, and would apparently have to be organized mainly by foreign efforts. Since the
experiences from Austria seem
to show that such a meeting,
particularly in a member country of the Scandinavian passport
union, would also bring to the
country, opponents, of the said
ideological group, it is to be
hoped that the organizers of the
Festival will carefully consider
whether it is well-founded to
arrange the event on the basis of
so scant domestic support." In
spite of these explicit statements,!
preparations for the Festival
have commenced in Helsinki.
"As is well-xnown, Finnish
youth and student organizations
have whenever possible endeavored to organize. and participate
in events which further co-oper-
ateion and friendly intercourse

"We have the right to expect
that the attitude of the two organizations representing the
youth and students of Finland
with unchallenged authority is
respected by the organizers of
the Festival. Our decision is a
result of democratic procedure,
therefore we cannot see how it
is possible to ignore it without
ignoring the true democratic
spirit on which this decision is
(The first Festival, sponsored
by WFDY and IUS, was held in
Prague in 1947. The second Festival was held in Budapest in

director of the WCIAU, has

CUCND tagged communist
TORONTO (CUP)—The Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, in its recent drive for new
members at the University of Toronto, has once again
been accused of communist sympathies.
The attack, similar to those of recent months, has
taken the form of poster mutilation. Several signs reading
"Join CUCND" have been altered to read "CUC for
RUSSIA." It is supposed that 'CUC still means Combined
Universities Campaign.
The CUCND posters calling for new members were
also disfigured by pencilled obscenities casting aspersions
on the moral fibre of the Communists in general and Nikita
Khrushchev in particular.

dent of UBC, announced the appointment of Dr. Anthony I.
Scott, leader of the team, as an
associate professor. Dr. Scott
and his co-workers are currently
at the University of Glasgow.
A second member of the
team, Dr. Frank McCapra, has
been appointed an assistant professor in the chemistry department. The other members are
Dr. John Nabney, who will come
to UBC as a postdoctoral fellow
and Mr. D. -W. Young, a Ph.D.
Dr. C. A McDowell, head of
UBC's chemistry department,
said Dr. Scott had distinguished
himself by his brilliant work
in the chemistry of naturally-
occuring organic compounds,
particularly those found in medicinal plants.
In particular, his work on fun
gus growth and its by-products,
which produce antibiotics, has
been widely acclaimed.
Dr. McDowell said the entire
research team scored an outstanding success recently by preparing a complete description,
including the geometrical properties, of gibberellic acid, a
I complex plant hormone.
The work which Dr. Scott and
his associates plan to continue
and undertake at UBC lies on
the borderline between chemistry and biochemistry, according
to Dr. McDowell.
