AMS asks gov't
for jobs, money
—Photo by  Ted  Boss
FINISHING OFF a little practice meal is John Motiuk, Arts 4,
after hearing of two Mount Allison University students who
claim to have eaten eight steaks,  18  pieces of pie,  eight
pints of. mi|k and nine bottles of Coke at one sitting.
RCMP may enter
riot investigations
The Royal Canadian Mounted
olice may be asked to investi-
ate the Feb. 15 riot.
First vice-president Eric Rick-
r told student council Monday
lat the discipline committee is
eceiving little co-o p e r a t i o n
rom students in investigating
ie incidents at the Engineering
"They are empowered to ob-
ain evidence in a manner which
;e cannot," Ricker said Tues-
ay, "and they may be able to
pprehend and take action
gainst those students who were
esponsible for the major property damages.
"Since the damages in recent
ncidents were of an extensive
ature, totalling some $600, and
ince the actions of the students
nvolved were extremely irre-
ponsible, there is a distinct pos-
ibility the RCMP will be called
a to investigate if we are un-
ble to get more evidence than
s- presently available," he said.
Under investigation are the
having of president Terry
Juest's head; the marking of
nembers of the Frosh council's
oreheads   with   silver   nitrate;
and the Feb. 15 riot at the Engineering building, during which
a car was pushed through the
doors of the building, fire hoses
were damaged and other damage
occurred to the building and to
clothing of students involved.
to discuss
Students will decide at the"
Spring General Meeting if the
National Federation of Canadian
University Students should receive further monetary support
from the Alma Mater Society
this year.
Student council Monday
passed a motion that consideration of the ten cent per student
voluntary increase requested by
NFCUS be tabled until the general meeting, Mar. 15.
A motion to pay the increase
was tabled at council four weeks
ago when it appeared that funds
were not available.
The voluntary grant to
NFCUS would amount to approximately $1,200.
The mandatory grant from
the Alma Mater Society, which
has already been paid, is approximately $3,900.
"To grant this increase sincerely we must take the question to the general meeting,"
Ricker said. "I honestly don't
think the students want it paid."
Council president Al Cornwall
said Tuesday NFCUS is the
vehicle by- which students can
make significant contributions to
not only education but to Canadian life.
"Anyone who is so naive as
not to recognize the values i.i
NFCUS has not as yet derived
the full benefit of their exposure to ■ a university environment," Cornwall said.
Second Vice-president-eleetj>
Ed Lavalle said the general
meeting would give NFCUS the
opportunity for a much needed
campus evaluation.
Also  requests  sales  tax
exemption  on  text  books
A student brief calling for more scholarships, more jobs
and a sales tax exemption on text books was presented to
the provincial government in Victoria Wednesday.
The   brief   was   presented   to
Education   Minister   Les   Peterson and other cabinet ministers
at   a   special   dinner  after   the
Wednesday legislative session.
A brief outlining student
needs is presented to the government each year.
The brief said that 700 more
scholarships should be given
under the government's "money
for marks" project.
The university enrolment was
10,500 when the scheme was set
up, the report said, and on a'
percentage basis with a present
enrolment of 13,500 students,
2,700 scholarships should be
given to keep pace with university growth.
The brief called on the government to create 500-1,000 summer student jobs by setting up
a program of provincial park
The report said park development will probably attract more
tourists to the province.
The students would clear
camping and picnic sites and
cut out nature trails such as
those at Manning Park and those
planned for Shuswap Park.
The report said the student
jobs should be given to those
who need them.
It urged the  government   to
drop its five per cent sales tax
on text books.
"As food and children's clothr
ing are vital to the physical development of the people of this
province, so books are essential
to the education of these people,"
the report said.
It said only B.C. and Newfoundland have a tax on books.
Some of the other provinces except all books from their sales
taxes, the brief said.
Even the federal government
has abolished its tax on books,
the report said.
"For a society which professes a great and continuing
concern for the development of
its resources to place a tax upon
books is to cripple the potential
of the greatest, of those resources.
"Every citizen of this province should be given the maximum opportunity and incentive
to learn and study.
"To tax the sale of books is
to deny this full opportunity."
The report was submitted on
behalf of the AMS by president
Al Cornwall, first vice-president
Eric Ricker, second vice-president Pat Glenn, Science president Bill Munro and Education
president Stan Yee.
3 presidential seats
go by acclamation
Three of four third-slate positions have been filled by acclamation.
New president of the University Clubs Committee is Graham
Olney. Barbara Bengough is
president of the Women's Athletic Association, and Gordon
Olafson has been- acclaimed-pres-
ident of the Men's Athletic Association.
A campus-wide election to fill
the one remaining position, president of Associated Women
Students, will be held Friday.
Joanne Atkinson and Judy
Blake are the two candidates.
Fair  sex  unfair?
Sorority  scandal
Ma led invitations refused at door
"It's rank discrimination."
This was the charge made by
three prospective sorority
rushees when they were refused
admission to the Panhellenic
Tea in Brock Lounge Wednesday afternoon.
The three, "Misses" Imre Kiss,
Lynn Spraggs and Leslie Grober-
man; all in first-year engineering, received letters inviting
them to attend the tea.
"The purpose of this tea is
to give you an opportunity to
learn about sororities and to
meet sorority women . . . We
want to meet YOU," said the letter.
"We broke pressing engagements to come here," said Lynn.
"Since the letter said to come
in campus clothes, we came as
-Photo   by  Ted  Ross
we were, in slacks," Leslie said.
"They wouldn't let us in, and
told us to go and put on skirts."
The three went away, changed
into skirts and sweaters and
tame back.
"But we were turned away
ngain," Imre said.
"We showed them our invita-
t ons but they just kept saying
I'm sorry,' and held the door
c losed."
A female bystander said she
thought the three ought to be
admitted but the sorority member standing guard refused to
t elent.
"We were very disappointed
and deeply hurt," said Lynn
afterwards. "It's the second time
this kind of thing has happened.
"We were invited to rush last
fall and when we went to apply
we were curtly turned down." Page 2

Brilliant but fiction
Monday night council passed the buck again. This time
instead of running for the cover of the table (i.e. tabling the
motion) it ruled that a decision on the ten per cent per student
voluntary;levy for the National Federation of Canadian University Students come from the spring general meeting.
> Four weeks ago council ruled to give NFCUS the money,
if it was available, at the end of the four-week period. The
money was available but it wasn't given. The treasurer said
that the projected margin was at least $3,000.
Council first vice-president Eric Ricker said the previous
decision was made after a very stirring speech by NFCUS
national president Walter MacLean. He said that to be honest
about this grant council' should let the general meeting decide.
The first vice-president then proceeded to give one of
his better oratorical performances.
He stated that UBC got nothing from NFCUS because
of its peripheral location. Later he said NFCUS was controlled by the Eastern Universities who had the benefit of
easier communications.
Mr. Ricker seems to have spent so much time on the
oratory that he clean forgot about the facts.
UBC gets as much from NFCUS as any other Canadian
university. UBC students are allowed to deduct their fees
from their income tax, as are the other Canadian University
students. •■,.*
UBC students can participate in the newly-organized
NFCUS travel arrangements which will save them almost 50
per cent on a flight to Europe. Total saving to Canadian
students as a whole is $33,000.
UBC students will also be able to deduct the cost of books
from their income taxes when this new project comes through,
UBC students have the opportunity of participating in
NF'CUS-sponosored literary and photographic contests. Here
we might add that a UBC student has always been able to
place in one of the categories cf at least the photo contest and
two years ago the majority of the photo prizes came to Point
UBC students, until this year, have always had a NFCUS
discount card which gave every student a ten per cent discount on merchandise purchased at many Vancouver stores.
The discount card will be back again next year, we hear.
Mr. Ricker's statement that NFCUS % controlled by the
Eastern Universities and that UBC has no say in its pokey
is just rubbish.
UBC has always had an instrumental part in forming
NFCUS policy. Many NFCUS innovations have come from
the local NFCUS committees. Two years ago, UBC started
a petition against the executions in Hungary, NFCUS picked
up the idea, and the result was a national petition. This yebr
the Dag Hammarskjold Fund idea originated at UBC and
was picked up by NFCUS.
Also this year, an investigation into the state of the
Canadian Indian in the Canadian Educational system sprung
from the campus Native Canadian organization, and is now
under study across the country under the auspices of NFCUS.
No, Mr. Ricker, you'll have to come up with some facts
to back up that brilliant, if somewhat fictional, oratory.

Letters to the Editor
Giggling hinders
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We would like to comment
on the attitude of the student
body towards visitors on our
campus, namely delegates to
the high school conference held
Friday last. We were guides for
this very worthwhile project
of acquainting high school students with the varied aspects
of university life.
We were hindered and abused throughout, the day by various students of the university,
ia particular the button^down,
monied, brock-set and their
giggling sorority-type girl
friends. Conduct of this type is
deplorable and unbefitting university students.
Yours truly,
'Naive questions'
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Dr. Johnson, the dean of
women, and a local gynecologist gave up, an hour and a half
of their time last Sunday evening to talk on "Chastity and
Abortion" to the 300 women of
the permanent residences. The
detailed discussion of these important questions—on topics of
which all university students
should be aware—is a welcome
The small attendance of 30
students may have been due to
the lack of interest or due to
the fact that the women felt
that they had sufficient knowledge of the subjects under discussion. However, from some of
the naive questions asked by
the small group present, it
would appear that the women
had a complete lack of knowledge of the true physical and
psychological conception of
It is my opinion that talks
of this nature should, in time,
be discussed with both sexes
in attendance so that the cor
rect information may be given
to both sides.
Duscussions   of   this   nature
could ultimately lead to a consulting committee being formed for the express purpose of
guiding students to  an understanding of the most frustrating
need of our modern society.
Yours truly,
Kootenay House.
More than lights dull
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Do you think we could nave
some lights in Bu. 100? From a
total of 25, nine are above the
lecturer — eight in operation.
The remaining 16 have a performance ration of 50 percent.
Aside from the somewhat
dull character of lectures received in this dungeon, the additional lack of physical illumination is very conducive to
an hour of sleep rather than an
hour of concentration and/or
Could this situation be
brought to the attention of B
& G?
Yours truly,
P.S.: This also applies to Bu.
104 and Engineering 201
where the illumination is absolutely deplorable. These are
probably not the only examples
of extreme darkness.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Having read the defence of
one Holden Caulfield's article,
Mardi Gras and Rolf Harris, in
Friday's edition of The Ubyssey, I have reached the conclusion that the faction in (or as
the editor puts it, "segment of")
the campus population which
expresses this view are, and I
quote from the 'defence', "sensitive 17-year-old(s) . . . who
(are) depressed by (their) society." So "sensitive" or perhaps
"uninformed" is a better term,
that  the  "literary  sensitivity"
which they feel Holden Caulfield shows is not once considered by them to be merely a
means of covering up the literary ability which he obviously
does not possess, I am certain
that one with far greater literary talents than mine could
have administered to the extremely anonymous Mr. Caulfield the verbal drubbing
which he so richly deserves.
To express a strongly-felt
opinion is one thing. To couch
it in an admittedly plagiarized
style is quite  another.
Why did the otherwise admittedly anonymous writer revert to the use of J. D. Salinger's style when, if we believe
Miss Southam, he could, with
his "high calibre" and "penetrating approach," have written in any other? That it was
funny is not doubted; it was
so funny, in fact, that I "damn
near puked." I am not asking
for an apology to the sororities and fraternities for the
slanderous article, for such it
I am, instead, requesting an
immediate apology to the general student body for submitting it to such trite, overworked and mundane phraseology.
I might also suggest that the
"uninformed 17-year-olds" persuade "Holden Caulfield" to
disclose his real name, in the
hopes that we will all be saved
the time to read other n o n-
literary articles by the same
Yours Truly,

*—Misguided coperer—'
My colleague, Bob Hendrickson, who usually fills his column CUP CAPERS with items
plagiarized from other publications, made a departure from
his norm Feb. 20. "For the sake
or argument," he devoted about
seven inches of muddled comment (not plagiarized) to a
topic that applies to UBC.
' The gist of this argument
was that since students must
join the AMS to attend UBC,
and since UBC already has
minimum academic standards,
anyone registered as a student
should be eligible to run for
student office.
*       *       *
Plagiarist Hendrickson has
overlooked a key point here:
UBC's standards are very minimum indeed and it is the administration's avowed policy to
allow almost anyone who can
t>ay the fees to attend UBC and
to weed out the academic dodos
in first and second year.
This means that, if the university is to discriminate on
the grounds of academic accomplishment, as almost everyone
Will agree a university should,
then this must be done internally.
Again, it is not the University's policy to turn away those
who have failed without a second or even third chance. Surely those who are having their
second or even third try at
passing are: (a) incompetent to
hold a position of responsibility
at an academic institution; and,
ib) should be devoting their
time to study — not student
Robber Robert baeks up his
plea for no eligibility rules with
the allegation that there are
no such rules in the "outside
world. He's wrong again. Most
'civic, provincial and federal
elections require some sort of
proof of responsibility.
Money or property or an election bond often supply this
proof. And perhaps this is fitting in a society where money
is the measure of success. At
a university, academic accomplishment is the measure of
success — and, I submit — the
proper proof of responsibility.
Hendrickson also asserts that
"eligibility rules show a lack
of confidence in UBC students
to choose fit and responsible
leaders."   *       *       *      '
This remark would have val
idity only if: (a) students had
access to the academic records
of the candidates; and, (b) students were given a chance to
measure ability on some more
valid basis than a few classroom speeches and a week of
posters and banners.
- Now, eligibility rules, to be
valid, must be enacted by the
student body at a general meeting or by referendum.
*       *       *
Surely, Mr. Hendrickson, you
wouldn't quarrel with the right
■ of the students to set minimum
standards   for   candidates   for
their offices.
Surely, this is a reasonable
step: to set down rules which
eliminate candidates who are
undesirable on some such obvious grounds from even getting as far as the ballot.
For the sake or argument,
Bob, old boy, we suggest you
stick to the plagiari-Trig:

Council endorses CAPRI campaign
Student council Monday
passed a motion endorsing a
fund raising campaign for the
Canadian Peace Research Institute.
The motion, which came to
council last week in the National Federation of Canadian
University Students committee
minutes was passed after council heard student and provincial representatives of CAPRI.
•    •    •
Mrs. Vaughn Lyon of the provincial CAPRI committee said
CAPRI was requesting student
council endorsation because
the program CAPRI intends to
follow is of a nature that
should appeal to people in the
university community and because young people should support this effort for world
•    *    •
Speaking on behalf of CAPRI, Peter Light requested
council permission to hold a
room-to-room canvass for
funds, to hold meetings of volunteers and speakers on campus, and to distribute leaflets
for publicity for the organization.
Council passed a motion urging CAPRI to form a campus
group, directing its request for
permission to distribute literature to the co-ordinator of activities and informing the
group   that   permission   for   a
room-to-room canvass must be
obtained from university president Dr. Norman MacKenzie
or the Board of Governors.
Speaking against council endorsement of CAPRI, first vice-
president Eric Ricker charged
that the group were "politically naive."
•    • ■   •
Second vice-president Pat
Glenn said that this was no
reason for the council not to
support it.
"They are tackling a difficult problem in a sophisticated
and astute manner and I urge
this council to take a positive
approach to the group," Glenn
"We owe it to these people
and to ourselves to give them
a chance," he added.
Secretary Lynn McDonald
spoke against council endorsement of CAPRI, stating that
council should merely facilitate the fund raising campaign
and let the students choose for
themselves whether or not
they wish to support it.
"Whether you support CAPRI or not is a purely personal
decision," she said, "and each
student should be allowed to
choose for himself."

Student criticizes
University principal
TORONTO (CUP)—The Principal of the University of Toronto's Victoria College was
severely criticized by one of the
participants in the Student Conference on Creative Writing in
Canada held here last weekend.
Irving Layton, "Canada's D.
H. Lawrence", laced Dr. Northop
Frye in a panel on the Young
Writer and the Canadian Cultural Milieu.
Layton charged that Frye, co-
director of the conference,
"could not write a single line
of poetry or a short story if his
life depended upon it." Quoting
Irish playwright, Brendan Beh-
an, Layton continued with "Frye
is like a eunuch in a harem —
he sees the trick done every
night, but can't do it himself."
Layton lashed out vitriolically
at other academic critics in general for teaching without creating.
In his opening address to the
conference, Dr. Frye said, "The
writer who writes for himself is
an honest man; the writer who
writes for the public is a professional man; the man who writes
for the critic is a damn fool."
Other panelists condemned
critics vehemently. "Literary
pygmies have invaded the world
of critics," Robertson Davies
asserted. "You don't mind if a

A UBC economics professor
has condemned high schools as
trying to produce future millionaires.
"The schools are over-emphasizing university preparation,"
Dr. J. J. Richter said in an interview Wednesday.
"Too many students are expected to follow the university
entrance program which is
eventually supposed to place
them in the upper socio-economic bracket."
Dr. Richter said this procedure is unnatural and is contrary
to normal economic distribution
of labor.
"Over 80 per cent of high
school students are pushed to
follow the university entrance
program but only  17   per cent
successfully complete univers
ily," he said.
For the remainder, much o
their education has been wasted
he said.
"What they have learned i
doubtless of some value, bu
their high school time conic
have been far better spent ii
taking courses more suited ti
their interests and abilities," Dr
Richter said.
He blamed a lack of technica
training centres and apprentice
ship programs in Canada foi

ployment among highly-skillec
Canadian and immigrant labor
"The average highly-skillec
immigrant worker has a bettei
job and wage than his Canadiar

Alumni Regional Scholarships double
for high school students this year
High school students. throughout the province are benefiting
from the most successful Alumni
Annual Giving campaign in the
history of the university.
Alumni Association officials
have announced that the number of alumni regional scholarships given will be almost doubled, from 22 to 42 each year.
In past years, the awards have
enabled many of the province's
interior's finest scholars to attend UBC. The new plan ensures that at least one scholarship will now be available in
each district of the province.
The $300 Alumni award is a
much coveted one. Selection of

AWS has many potentialities
which I believe have not been

essential that it continue to be
a responsible "voice of women"
on campus. Secondly, its activities should be broadened and
made more worthwhile to create greater interest. Specifically,
AWS should insure that women's

Mussoc play
held over for
first time
For the first time in 33 years
a University musical production
is being held over.
Musical Society's production
of "Once Upon a Mattress" will
be held over for one performance Friday night.
Mussoc president Peter Her-
mant said: "So many people
were turned away Saturday and
so many requests for a repeat
came in that we had to schedule
another performance."
The show cost $4,500 to
stage, and has brought in about
that much in receipts.
Vancouver critics termed the
show "a tremendous success." •
Tickets for the Friday performance are on sale at the Alma

Throne would defeat them. New
elections were called for Mar. 7.
The opposition parties, the
New Democrats and the Progressive Conservatives, protested
the move and held a "rump"
parliament after the Liberals
walked out of the chamber.
The Liberals retired to t h e
visitor's gallery for the remainder of the session. They san g
songs and created a minor disturbance in the gallery. When
attempts to eject them were
made, a scuffle broke out.
Anonymous literature began
circulating on the campus following the dissolution of parliament,, charging the Liberals
with cowardice, two-facedness,
and having acted in a manner
of which even Lester Pearson
would be ashamed.
The mimeographed leaflets
were believed to be NDP-orig-
inated, and it was reported that
the NDP would face severe disciplinary action if these reports
proved correct. The leaflets are
alleged to be libelous, and, in
addition, were circulated without permission.
The Liberals held 22 seats in
this parliament. Progressive
Conservatives had 14 and the
New Democrats 13.

Says  History   professor
Canada taking middle-power lead
Canada's proposal for a
cease-fire during the Suez conflict greatly enhanced her
middle-power status, history
professor John Conway said.
Dr. Conway, speaking at a
United Nations Club seminar
on Canada's Role in the United Nations, said that Canada
has pressed for a greater role
for the middle, powers.
He pointed out that Canada
has been slow to accept the
responsibilities but nevertheless willingly contributed to
the Korean War in 1950.
* *       *
Dr. Conway concluded by
asking the question: "Will
Canada find herself able to
give constructive ideas and
courageous leadership to the
United Nations or was it only
a flash in the pan?"
Dr. John Wood, of the university extension department,
pointed out that Canada's role
as an influential middle power
inevitably leads to increasing
international i n v o 1 v ement,
which is often resisted by
those who, illogically, want
more influence for Canada
with less involvement.
* *       *
Thus, we have the present
disputes about Canada's participation in NATO, NORAD,
customs and trade alliances
and the consideration of Canadian meinbership in the OAS,
he said.
Dr. Wood asked if Canada
is bold enough in her approaches to domestic as well
as international problems.
He mentioned the European
Common Market  as  a  novel
model  of planned capitalism,
and Israel as an experiment in
voluntary collective living.
*       *       *
In the international field, he
suggested that Canada should
contribute above all in the
form of technical aid to the
underdeveloped countries, giving aerial photography as an
outstanding example.
In a debate on Canadian
acquisition of nuclear weapons, speakers Mrs. Dorothy
Beck and Dick Arkley claimed
that the nuclear deterrent
cannot be increased, since it
is all-destructive already.
They said Canada's acquisition of nuclear weapons would
merely expand the nuclear
This, they maintained, was
a grave peril, because the
danger of nuclear war would
be greatly increased by such
an expansion.

John Grant, a service officer, supported D'Aquino's arguments with military facts
upon which he based his conclusion that Canadian troops
in Europe must have nuclear
tactical weapons in order to
cope with the Russian superiority in conventional weapons.

Does Canada want big-time
college sports?
Frank Clair, coach of Ottawa
Rough Riders has suggested in
Weekend Magazine that more
Canadian football players
would be produced if high
school coaches (and presumably this could be carried over
to college ones) were paid for
their services. Then, he argues,
competent men would have incentive to seek coaching positions and to put more effort
into the work once they had
secured the job.
~k -k k
Let us examine the result on
a college level, using football
as an example. A hired coach,
be it in professional, intercollegiate, or high school ranks, is
p&id to do a job. That is, he is
expected to win football games.
;lt is sad, but true, that when
it; loses, the coach is blamed,
aijd, more often than not, canned.
In an attempt to win football games, three things are involved: finding good players,
persuading them to attend your
university, and teaching them
how to play winning football.
The first of these involves
a scouting system — either full
time (paid, of course), or some
type of monetary reward to
high school coaches for sending players your way.
The second is solved by Clair.
He suggests athletic scholarships are a good thing. He
claims academic standards for
such awards have been stiffened in many schools. The cost,
according to the Ottawa coach,
would be more than met by
gate receipts.
* *       *
Two problems arise here.
Firsjt, consciously or otherwise,
the scholarship player is expected to produce and live up
to his scholarship. Second,
someone has to encourage fan
support to get the gate receipts.
Another paid position appears.
In order to teach winning
football, a . win*«'-eJse attitude
must be engendered in the players, lest the coach lose his job.
Practice is apeauired—lots of it.
This detracts fisom study time.
All of which..brings us to the
" function of athletics at an institution of higher learning. It
seems to this corner that athletic competition has an important function for both the
participant and the spectator;
however, it must not jet out of
proportion when compared to
the academic aspect.
* ' *       *
But what has Clair created?
It would follow that football
now becomes all-important —
from the point of view of the
coach, to win and save his job;
from the point of view of the
players, to earn their scholarships, and frem the point of
view of the administration, to
sell football tickets in order to
pay the first two groups.
WAA  elections  open

UBC athletes extend monopoly
Back east, they have monopoly marathons between colleges. They play them with
cards, paper money, and a
multi-colored board.
Out west, there's a monopoly marathon going on in the
Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union, and the
University of B.C., is way
out in front.
At the WCIAU championships which ended Tuesday,
UBC athletes won four more
championships — in curling,
speed swimming, badminton,
and fencing.
UBC teams have already
won football, swimming, bas
ketball, golf, and mens and
women's tennis championships. .••'"*
The men's volleyball and
wrestling teams travel to the
Prairies this weekend in
search of two more titles.
The men's fencing team won
its championship, while the
women were a close third. But
in the combined standings,
UBC had 12 points, compared
to the University of Saskatchewan's ten and nine for Alberta.
Peter Roller won all ■ five
of his matches to lead UBC.
Jack Arnet's curlers defeated Doug Grant of Alberta 9-4

Alice Genge set records in
the 50 freestyle and the 100
individual medley.
In badminton, UBC again
topped the combined men's
and women's standings with
16 points, four better than
second-place Manitoba.
UBC's Bruce Rollock won
the men's singles and teamed
up with Linda Keil to win the
mixed doubles. Keith Tolman
and Gord Wansley won the
Men's doubles.

solid favorites to take both
games of the two-game series.
Saturday, Birds were beaten
9-3. The final two games of the
series will be played Mar. 29
and 31 at UBC.
Monday's game was highlighted by rough and aggressive
American football-type play
which surprised the UBC 15.
After taking a 9-0 lead, the
Birds fell victim to tre - Bears
who scored 16 unanswered
UBC opened the scoring at
the seven minute mark when
Peter Black completed a 16-yard
passing' rush for three points.
The convert was missed. Five
minutes later, Birds' Neal Henderson booted a 20-yard penalty
kick for a 6-0 lead.
UC1A  Wednesday   defeated   the
'Birds   6-3  in   L.A.
The Birds looked like defending champions after eight minutes in the second half when
Fred Sturrock added another
three points to UBC's score.
Again, the convert was missed.
Then the roof fell in on the
Birds. Fred Tummler scored
Cal's first try. A few minutes
later, Rudy Carvalhal picked up
a Cal rump kick and rambled 16
yards for a try to reduce UBC's
lead to 9-6.
Beat's kept on pressing and
with seven minutes remaining,
Tom Burke fell on a UBC fumble over the goal line. Along
with Brian Reid's conversion
the Bears took an 11-9 lead.
In the remaining minutes of
the game Pete Olson's four yard
dash consolidated the win for
the Bears.
The two wins gave the Bears
a  13-point lead going into the
third game of the series at UBC
stadium, March 29.
UBC players were placed on
the injury list after Monday's
game. Fullback Bruce McCal-
lum received a broken jaw

Birds think Hamber's
their cup of hockey
The UBC Thunderbird hockey
team makes its bid for the Ham-
ber Cup in a two-game series
with the Alberta Golden Bears
this weekend.
Birds, who have improved
greatly since the start of the
season, play Alberta Friday
night in Chilliwack and Saturday night in the North Shore
Winter Club. Both games begin
at 8 p.m.
UBC coach Father David
Bauer has built the team around
a strong defensive unit. Birds
don't seem able to mount a sustained offensive but are capable
of holding their own in their end
of the ice.
Birds strength lies in the fore-
checking of the first string forward line of Peter Kelly, Bob
Parker and Mike Smith.
Birds were defeated twice on
the prairies by the Golden Bears.
They lost the first game 13-2,
but after a line-up shuffle lost
only 4-2 the second night.
The   Bears   are   leading   the
Western  Intercollegiate  Le-gtie
and a win this weekend will assure them of the championship.
The Hamber Cup is awarded
to the annual winner of a two-
game total-point series between

ALBPQUERQUE, New Mexico (CUP/UPS)—Students at the University of Arizona have been forbidden to
hold public political meetings. The executive vice-president of the university made the ruling.
Students were encouraged to discuss political issues,

the student newspaper, The Wildcat, to attend such meetings.
The ruling was based on a 1956 Board of Regents' ruling. No reason was given as to why student political meetings should not be public knowledge.
