The Ubyssey has been named the best university paper
in annual Canadian University Press awards.
For the first  time in  its 43-
ette of McMaster University, and
the Georgian of Sir George Williams University.
Le Droit Trophy for general
excellence among French language papers was awarded to Le
Carabin, published at Laval Uni:
The Bracken Trophy for editorial excellence was also awarded to Le Carabin, with the Mani-
toban, of the University of Manitoba second.
The Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie
Trophy for feature writing was
awarded to the Gateway.
FOUR OF THE UBC's so-called brainstrust gloat over the Southern trophy for general excellence won by the paper for the first time in its 43-year history. Left to right, they are: Denis
Stanley, managing editor; Fred Fletcher, news editor and former editor-in-chief; Keith Bradbury, city editor;  Roger  McAfee,   present editor-in-chief.
Administration uses $100,000 gift
as part of own winter arena grant
Senator H. M. Molson and his
brother Thomas of the Molson
brewing company have donated
$100,000 towards the construction of a winter sports arena at
But, according to administration officials, the grant will
make no difference to the total
value of the arena, which has
been set at $500,000.
The $100,000 will merely be
used as part of the administration's pledge, The Ubyssey learned Wednesday.
When announced in mid-December of last year, the private
gift was assumed to be a no-
strings addition to the $250,000
already pledged by the University and the equal sum promised
by the student body. This would
have brought the fund up to
However, Dean E. D. Mac-
Phee said: "The $100,000 was
merely earmarked in respect of
the wishes of the donor." The
Molson money does not represent, for the arena, any tangible
increase, Dean MacPhee admitted. The university began plans
a year ago with the $500,000
promised and with "no inkling
of the Senator's gift".
But Phillips, athletic director,
appeared taken aback when the
rumour of the sizeable arena-
fund cut was continued by The
Ubyssey. He said it was out of
his hands, being purely a matter
of finance. I

was possible to get a first-class
building with the then-assumed
$600,000 fund.
"The architects say it is," he
offered as answer.
The only thing certain about
the arena today is the money
said to be coming its way.
No  plans  will  be  forwarded
to student council for Monday's

For  MacKenzie  residence
Fort Camp protests playing field loss
Fort Camp doesn't want to
sacrifice its playing field for
retiring president Dr. Norman MacKenzie's  residence.
And the committee of residence dons and faculty advisors agree that the residence should be built elsewhere.
A spokesman for Fort Camp
Council said, "If the residence
is built there, every time we
kick a convert, "we'll have
to enter the president's garden
for tea before we retrieve the
A permanent home on campus for retired presidents was
the idea^of Dr. Leon Koerner
who heard of a similar plan at
Princeton University.
The playing field where it
is planned the residence will
be built is situated north of the
Home Management house on
Marine Drive.
The   building of the  house,
previously   a   campus   secret,
See picture, page 4
was to have started during the
Christmas  holidays.
This would have established
"possession    rights"    on    the
playing field with as little publicity as possible.
However, late last term,
building stakes were discovered by Fort Camp residents
who notified Fort Camp Council.
The council started an investigation.
Prior to the discovery, Housing Director, John Harr, and
the Information Office denied
knowledge of the project.
Councillors said they fail to
see that the loss of their playing field is necesssary.
"The nearest playing field
is behind the stadium, ten to
fifteen minutes from camp,"
said one Fort Camp spokesman.
"The loss of our playing field
may result in an excess of
panty-raids in the spring."
The building of the house
will be financed by the Leon
and Thea Koerner Foundation.
Stakes for a second building,
rumoured to be a "Chancellory", have been found in the
common block area.
Neither Buildings and
Grounds nor the Information
Office will comment on the
reason for the new stakes. Page 2

Keeping with policy
In keeping with Ubyssey policy of giving credit where
it is due, the editor-in-chief of The Ubyssey would like to
thank the editors and staffers who made our victory in this
year's Southam Trophy Competition possible.
For more than two years we have been working to bring
this campus the best newspaper possible. In some ways we
have failed, but in most ways we feel we have succeeded. The
winning of the Southam Trophy for general newspaper excellence is, we feel, a vote of confidence in what we have been
trying to do. This vote comes from some of Canada's most
successful and competent newspaper men — men who know
what they are talking about.
We have been lacking in certain areas of our coverage.
Feature material has been scanty and some editorials have
lacked the polish and research, they could have had. However, we always looked on our jobs as dispensing news and
hav6 treatid H *s the most important aspect of our operation.
UnlftriufiitfeiyV sf>ace does not permit us to print all the news,
but we have dene our best.

Rampant apathy
(Reprinted from Salem, Oregon
Capital-Journal,   November   6,
Joe Much is Sports Editor
of the Capital-Journal, and was
in Vancouver covering the football game between the Willamette University Bearcats and
ihe UBC Thunderbirds.
"College sports, they say, are
lagging pitifully in the race for
space in California journals. A
surfeit of professional productions has been the bane of collegiate impresarios the length
and breadth of the Golden State
these days.
But, take it from me, they
don't know what apathy can
be until they've seen the Canadian Press at work.
Take the case of the University of British Columbia, for example. Here is an institution of
13,000 undergraduates and
some 700 " pedagogues. It conducts a vigorous varied and entertaining athletic programme
ranging from grass hockey to
curling to fair country football.
The UBC Thunderbirds, obliged to master the intricacies
of both Canadian and American
style football in order to fill a
schedule, had just mopped up
the Western Canada Conference
on the occasion of Willamett's
visit last S a t u r d ay. Coach
Frank Gnup's hardy lads had
won four, lost two games to
stateside squads, and tied one.
They operated an imaginative offense described by Gnup
as "halfway between a slingshot and a shotgun", and numbered some highly adept athletes in their number.
What's more, every last one
of the Thunderbirds is a native
Canuck in contrast to Dominion
pro teams laced almost exclusively with Yankee sinew.
And Vancouver press could
hardly care less.
On the day before the UBC-
Williamette contest, Vancouver's afternoon journal tucked
away its advance story at the
bottom of the second sports
page. Substantially more space
and display was devoted to an
upcoming Monday game of so-
called junior football, a sort of
semi-professional thing, involving a local team known as the
On game day, the morning
paper filled nearly three sports
pages before finding room to
mention the afternoon's collegiate offering.
In both cases, stories were
hinged on the relatively insignificant intelligence that WU's
Tommy Lee kicked "converts"
sans shoes. The impression was
left that were Lee afflicted
with a knotted shoelace, the
game wouldn't be worth watching.
Parenthetically, the tough-
toed Hawaiian did not disappoint. He guided five of six
tries through the sticks and successfully warded off frostbite.
Let it be said for the Canadians that they can be just as
casual about their college football as the local press. They
stayed home in droves. A city
of some half-million souls produced fewer than 1,000 customers for the contest.
Many of them wandered
away once UBC had established
itself as a likely loser.
Those who remained behaved
much in the manner of small
children at a Saturday morning moyie. They roundly booed
the Bearcats, who emerged
from their cubicle after intermission as established villains
of the piece. And they lionized
the officials, who apprehended
and punished our n'er-do-wells
with  astonishing  frequency.
Nor did the university itself
regard this extra-curricular and
inter-American reationship as
anything meriting exclusivity.
In fact, on the same several
acres in the middle of an extensive campus, four other contests were competing vigorously and simultaneously for attention.
From a vantage point in the
press box, one could watch
snatches of a "rugger match to
the east, a soccer game to the
north and two grass hockey
scrambles to the west. It was
I've rung the new year in
by pulling a cord to ring the
bell to summon my nurse in
the hospital. And I've smoked
and reflected my way through
several other new year's eves
in such places as: the Winnipeg
peg YMCA—alone: the kitchen
at home—dateless: the den at
home — pie-eyed and dateless:
unpacking at home—dateless,
un-pie-eyed and alone . . . God!
But this new year's eve was
going to be different. I was determined to get a date and go
to a party and get pie-eyed and
kiss in the new year. So here's
what happened.
I'd heard that A and B (a
married couple — initials
changed to avoid a lawsuit)
were going to have an open (a
wide open) party. Being civilized I thought it only proper
to ask the host if he'd mind if
myself and date came to his
'open' party. I backed away
blushing and bowing as he 1)
failed to recognize me, 2) informed me that "it's only a
small gathering of FRIENDS"
and 3) looked through, behind
and above me but not at me—
or so it seemed.
Well, there are lots of parties
on New Year's Eve so I gave it
up with a shrug of the shoulder. I made the mistake, how
ever, of telling Lafty (who always needs a shave) about the
above little incident.
Now Lafty is a great guy and
he thinks I am too so HE goes
to A and B and tells them I'm
a great guy and they should
welcome me. He wastes no
time in phoning me and assuring me that everything's all
fixed up and I should go to A
and B's new year's party and
I'd be welcome and Happy
New Year Jack in case I
shouldn't see you, etc. etc.
Comes new year's eve. Susan, my lucky date, and I and
Seagrams and Adams (we doubled) plow into A and B's and
lo and behold . . . the party IS
only a small gathering of
friends ... so I mumble inanities about Lafty (that idiot!)
etc., I try to open the door behind me with my left hipbone
and I feel like one of those pennies that's been run over by a
train ... a big black one.
But this story has a happy
ending. Judy (who lives above
A and B) opened those wonderful arms of hers and we all welcomed the new year with Italian folk songs and a delicious
pizza, and a kiss.
Anyone knowing the whereabouts of a yolt named Lafty—
Happy  New Year!
something of a sports spectacular with a traveling audience.
It can be report-ed here, however, that if newspapers are
uniformly nonchalant about
UBC football, the game has
been discovered by the great
Cyclopean monster. This contest was filmed by television
cameras for replay Sunday
afternoon for parlor fans.
It would require more research than permitted in a
weekend visit to root out the-
reasons for press and public
apathy to college football. Certainly Vancouver and Canada
generally are not unmoved by
the fall spectacle,
Professional teams of Yankee
flavor are bobbing along sol-
vently. Other sports are flour-'
ishing north of the border before a vivacious populace. The
press is otherwise alive and diligent in its pursuit of sports
The point here is merely that
California collegiates can take ->
heart.   After   all,   they're   not
bucking rugger,  grass hockey,
junior football and curling.

Cars travelling East on University Boulevard cannot see vehicles entering 10th from either

I realize that this is a touchy
poblem considering the sentiment and history attached to
the gates. But no matter what
sentiment may be attached to
these landmarks it is not worth
endangering the lives of students and citizens of the area.
Since the speed limit has been
increased to 35 m.p.h. on the

the possiblity of accidents oc-

The architect's plans have already been returned to be redrawn for their first time.
"We may send them back four
or five times," said MacPhee,
dean of administrative and financial affairs. "There are a lot
of committees to go through —
a maze of committees."
The plot set aside for the arena
is still undecided. Right next to
the stadium is preferred but,
said Phillips, a steep slope is
there that would have to be built
up. "The architects recommend it
being right by the gymnasium.
It's flat there."
Phillips would like to see
sauash and handball courts in
addition to the ice rink and eight
curling sheets.

the building would have to be

UBC  lands
The UBC Endowment Lands
may house a multi-million dollar residential development.
Three groups, including Webb
and Knapp (Canada) Ltd., the
builders of the Brentwood Shopping Centre, are formulating
plans   for  the  development.
E. R. Loftus, assistant vice-
president of Webb and Knapp,
refused to discuss the matter
with The Ubyssey. "Any statement will have to come from
Lands and Forests Minister Ray
Williston," he said.
The development would be in
the form of a townsite. A report,
prepared in 1956 by Dr. David
B. Turner, foresaw the development of a $20 million extensive
residential area.
It was to contain over 3,000
single-home lots, 34 apartment
blocks, five churches, four elementary schools, a 109-acre industrial area, a golf course and
park land.
The Endowment Lands are
controlled by the Department of
Lands, not by the university.
"The only connection any development will have with the
university is a mutual use of
certain roads and services,"
Dean E. D. McPhee, dean of Administrative Affairs said.
Williston has said that any
" development plans must be in
accordance with the 1956 Turner report, which advocated the
disposal of land in 99-year
It was estimated these leases
would bring the university between $2.5 million and $3 million a year in revenue.
"The university has not been
thinking of these finances, and
any discussion of them would
have to be negotiated between
the board of governors and the
provincial government," Dean
McPhee said.
"But the university would perhaps receive the payments as a'
substitute for a provincial
grant," he said.
"The university has received
no money from the Endowment
Lands so far,"
The Endowment Land area is
1,400 acres.
"We have 1 000 acres here at
the university," Dean McPhee
said. "What's put up on the
outside of our land, we can only trust others to use good judgment."
Interest  increases  in
overseas  aid  service
By  Canadian  University  Press
OTTAWA — Interest in service overseas appears to be growing among Canadian students
and the main focus for this interest is the Canadian University
Service Overseas program.
Formed last June at the National Conference of Canadian
Universities and Colleges annual
meeting in Montreal, CUSO was
actually on planning boards before that time.
Basically, CUSO is a means
whereby Canadian graduates
work in a foreign country helping to develop its potential and
developing their own potential
as mature citizens.
For the student interested in
an immediate well-paying job,
CUSO is not the means to prosperity, but its long range benefits are immense. There are four
wage plans, the conditions of
which are dependent on the
country of service and the posi-
Applicants for CUSO positions
must be over 21 years of age. Canadian citizens by birth or naturalization, and be witling to serve
overseas for at least two years.
Candidates should preferably
have an honors degree.
"In addition to intellectual
ability," explained the spokesman, "candidates must possess
emotional maturity, initiative,
resourcefulness, and be able to
adapt themselves to new, unfamiliar and sometimes difficult environments. They must be willing to regard their overseas assignments as primarily a learning experience, and have the capacity to conduct themselves with
humility, understanding and restraint."

Woman editor raises coin
on Manitoba campus
WINNIPEG (CUP)—The right
of an editor to express personal
opinion in an editorial was upheld last week by the executive
of the Manitoba Students' Union
following a dispute when the
university paper printed an editorial in favor of the NDP two
days prior to the model parliament  election.
The editorial brought cries of
rage from university Conservatives and members of both the
campus Liberals and Conservatives charged the editorial was
slanted, inaccurate and ill-timed.
In addition, the photography
staff of the paper resigned because the editorial did not coincide with their political views.

Christmas grim in East Berlin

BERLIN — Sitting in the
warm living room of a friendly German household it is difficult to remember exactly the
chill that gripped both mind
and body in East Berlin.
Two days ago my five companions and I passed through
"Check Point Chariie" into the
German Democratic Republic
We stepped rather carefully
between the armed guards,
wound our way past the tank
, traps, and then through the
now famous six foot thick wall
• sepafatng the  two  Germanys.
Our   passports   were   taken
' from us and we were checked
' for  East  German  money in a
stuffy little room crowded with
. officials.
In a few moments our" passports were returned and we
were allowed to wander into
the East Zone.
•    •    •
On both sides of the border
are many old bombed-out
buildings that lend the area a
note of desolation. This atmosphere, which begins in the
West Zone only as one approaches the border, was maintained well into the East Zone
and never really lost throughout our visit.
We proceeded straight down
FriedrlchstraSse to'dne of the
banks authorized to give for-
v eign  exchange.
Dirty and without decoration except for a picture of
Lenin, it . was depressing for
staff and customers alike. The
"workers" reflected their sur
roundings in appearance and
in spirit.
In rows behind cluttered
tables girls slouched in oulky
sweaters and heavy slacks. Nowhere was there the professional smoothness and organized elegance found in most
Canadian banks. The exchange
was carried out readily enough
although several forms were
required  for each transaction.
With legal money in our
pockets we headed for a restaurant where we had an all
too usual cheap and rather
pasty meal.
The only thing different
from its western equivalent at
our low budget prices was the
coffee which, I heard rumored, doubled as tank fuel! The
"decadent capitalistic" custom
of tipping was not in evidence
although the waiter did ask if
we had any cigarettes.
•    *    •
Prevented from approaching
the Brandenburg Gate we diverted our attention to a
building housing a display of
"Contenmporary Art" by four
university prof essors • from the
communist   bloc   countries.
We paid the 12% cents entry to see a propaganda display more vicious and twisted
than any our imaginations
could have produced.
In extremely clever caricature and on violently hostile
posters the western world exploited and killed the world's
poor and weak. Britain, America,- and Nazi Germany walked
hand in" hand over innocents
from German peasants to the
American Negro!

What, however, did the 40
young school children think,
the 14-year-old East Germans
whose visits coincided with
ours? They were too young to
remember; teachers don't dare
say too much; yet they were
exposed to these virulent slogans and emotional appears
and left for themselves to draw
conclusions about their western neighbours.
By comparison with these
tactics how crude the concrete
wall seemed and how trivial
the armed guards. Before we
left the display we casually
mentioned to the woman at the
ticket counter that the exhibits
were all propaganda, not art.
She looked uncomfortable,
glanced sideways, and replied,
"I know, but I'm not allowed
to say  anything."
There   were    few   signs    of
Christmas in  East Berlin and
those were pitiful indeed.

streets were decorated here

the sidewalks from their place
of business.
There was on overt rejoicing
here—it was against the rules!
The West Berliners did not forget their alienated neighbors
though, for on high buildings
and on raised construction
crane booms stood decorated
trees which threw their light
far into the East Zone.
Their Christmas message of
sympathy glowed a 24 hour
defiance of the Godless regime across the  wall.
We had come to Berlin expecting the spectacular and the
dangerous. We joked about
ending up in Siberia and we
secretly hoped for a flare-up at
the border which we might

Communism presented to us

The oppression mirrored in
the faces of the citizens of East

Library expansion hurt
by dollar devaluation
Devaluation of the Canadian
dollar is hampering expansion
of the University's library, according to acting librarian Dr.
Sam Rothstein.
Dr. Rothstein makes this observation in the annual report
of the UBC librarian to the University senate.
Canadian libraries once enjoyed an advantage of about five
per cent in the purchase of books
outside Canada, he says. With
the devaluation of the dollar,
purchasers are now at a disadvantage of nearly five per cent,
he says.
"The   net   result,"   Dr.  Rothstein says, "is that we are now
paying almost ten per cent more
for imported books."
. Despite this the book store at
the UBC library reached 500,000
volumes in the past year, the
report states. A total of 37,556
volume's were added to the library collection during the year
ending August 31, 1961, as compared to 32,951 in the preceding year.
These increases warrant no
smugness, Dr. Rothstein writes,
and   the   UBC   library  will   be
truly adequate only when it provides in large measure the materials needed for advanced
study by its own faculty, and
distinguished only when its resources attract scholars from
other institutions.
Funds available to the librarj
for the purchase of books held
pretty well static, the report
states, and more input is regular
ly needed to produce the sam<
output in a period of constantly
rising book prices.
Turning to the matter of staff,
Dr. Rothstein says beginning
professional salaries, once as
good as any in Canada, have fallen behind those of Alberta and
Toronto. The UBC library has
never been able to fill its complement of professional positions
and four were vacant in the past
Division heads with long experience are now paid less than
many high school teachers, Dr.
Rothstein states, and he recommends that salaries for this key
group should be reviewed and
brought into line with their responsibilities.
Nuclear disarmament ok d
at U. of Western Ontario
" LONDON (CUP) — Student
Council of the University of
Western Ontario has ratified the
constitution of Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear
Disarmament Club on the campus.
The action ended a long debate on the legitimacy of the
CUCND, which included discussion of free love and crackpots.
Paulette Silver, speaking for
CUCND, said ratification of the
constitution was merely recognition of the right of students to
express their views on a topic
currently vital to the nation.
Student Mike Vaughan said it
was time some radical ideas
started circulating on campus
but Tom Allen, publications
commissioner, said some radical
thoughts should not be connected with the univerity.
USC president Mike Hamilton
said that voting down the constitution would be preventing
freedom of thought.
Council approved the club's
constitution by a vote of 15 to 5.

What's doing
in Aluminum
More—much more—than meets the eye: the technology
of producing aluminum in our smelters is constantly
changing. Talented engineers experiment with and develop
new processes and design new technical controls. They are
responsible for the transforming, plant distribution and
rectification of electricity; the electrolysis of alumina by
the Hall & Heroult process; the production of carbon
electrodes and the casting of aluminum and its alloys.
In addition they may be involved in project, maintenance
and industrial engineering. Indeed—there's a lot doing in
the five aluminum smelters we operate across Canada:
At Arvida, Quebec: 373,000 tons installed capacity of aluminum
ingot per year.
At Isle Maligne, Quebec: 115,000 tons installed capacity of
aluminum ingot per year.
At Shawinigan, Quebec: 70,000 tons installed capacity of aluminum ingot per year.
At Beauharnois, Quebec: 38,000 tons installed capacity of aluminum ingot per year.
At Kitimat, B.C.: 192,000 tons installed capacity of aluminum

Two more hoopsters quit
UBC Thunderbirds, already
suffering from lack of experience, lost two more veteran
players over the holidays.
Dune McCallum and Ed Ter-

McCallum, a first-string
guard last year, has been having a lot of trouble finding
the hoop this season. Dune,
who sported a 49.5 per cent
field goal average in 60-61 got
disgusted and turned in his
strip after the team's U.S. trip.
Terr is, who played with the
Jayvees last year, felt he might
get a little more playing time

says there is talk of a proposal
for a Pacific Coast College rugby
hookup from B.C. to California

Possible teams would come
from UBC, Western Washington,
Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Stanford, and California and Victoria.
Laithwaite however, feels that
the World Cup competi tion
should remain between UBC and
California apart from the proposed league because it is an established tradition.
The Birds' rugger schedule for
1962 already includes many exhibition games with U.S. teams.
They play Western Washington

and California this spring.
The games with California
will feature the World Cup competition played at Berkley on
Feb. 24 and 26, and here on

New Zealanders will be comprised of some of the All Blacks

they won the Memorial Cup
in 1945.
He was on the negotiation
list for the Boston Bruins, the
team on which his brother Bobby Bauer became a big star.

Father Bauer managed the
St. Michael's team for several
years, and last year coached
them to the Memorial Cup,
