Trouble brewing
for universities
By Canadian University Press
Money, overcrowding, and a
lack of qualified teachers and
research workers will be major
problems for Canadian universities in ten years if adequate steps
are not made quickly and carefully.
Dr. Edward Sheffield, Canadian Universities Foundation research officer, warned that by
the end of this decade more
than 311,000 students will be attending universities.
These students will require
25,000 instructors, 23,000 of
which are yet to be recruited,
the doctor reported.
Foreign student enrollment is
also expected to go up. "We can
expect about 11,000 in 1965-66
and about 19,000 in 1970-71,"
Dr. Sheffield noted.
By 1971 the number of graduate students will have doubled
twice to about 26,000.
■■ There are now 114,000 full-
time students in university,
107,400 of which were undergraduates, the research officer
estimated. In five years there
will be 182,900 students.
Five years ago 69,600 undergraduates and 3,100 graduate
students attended Canadian universities and colleges.
"There were probably about
6,000 full-time teachers and research workers in universities
and colleges in 1955-56 and
roughly 9,000 in 1960-61," Dr.
Sheffield said. To keep the ratio
of students to staff constant, 25,-
000 teachers will be required in
. 1970-71, an increase of 16,000,
the doctor predicted.
The problem of recruiting
qualified teachers "requires intensive study—soon," the officer
Commenting on the present
source of instructors Dr. Sheffield said 42 percent were students, 12 percent were university teachers or research workers in other countries (seven percent in the USA, four percent in
the UK, one percent in Europe).

met with a student delegation
to Victoria last week, said any
provincial grant to the building
will have to come out of the
government's lump-sum grant to
the' University.
The ministers, education minister Les Peterson, attorney-
general Robert Bonner, recreation minister Earle Westwood,
and lands and forest minister
Ray Williston, said they had
heard nothing of campus troubles with financing the project.
President-elect Doug Stewart
said the student building could
require an expenditure of up to
$5 million.
Outgoing AMS president Alan
Cornwall said he feels the night
wasn't wasted. "We got across
to them the feeling that students need more than just classroom facilities."
A tentative council feeler for
a matching grant to the half-
million already raised by students, such as Victoria College
supposedly got under the same
circumstances, brought the immediate denial that this had been
done in Victoria.
Vic College's student-raised
$120,000 was matched by its administration, not by the government directly, they said.

U of M locks doors
to CUCND lecture
WINNIPEG (CUP) — Students
at the University of Manitoba
have turned down a motion
which would have allowed the
Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
use of a building for a forthcoming lecture series.
The action was taken by St.
Paul's College Student Council,
who charged that the organization is "pacifist" and "Communist-tinged".
The motion was one vote short
of unanimous. The CUCND request was for use of the building for one lecture in a series
entitled "CUCND Strikes Back".
for donations, just the same, says
student union committee member Eric Ricker.
"There's going to be a general
fund-raising "campaign," Ricker
promised, "We'll be asking
everywhere we think we'll be
able to get money from—which
will include Victoria."
The faculty-student Client's
Committee on Student Union is
firm at the moment that no construction is going to start until,
as Ricker put it, "... there's
another million to million and
a half in hand," and Victoria is
not being crossed off the list,
greatest fear
says Dr. Lyman
House Committee on Uh-American Activities presents a- greater
threat to the personal freedom
of Americans than Communist
infiltration, a professor of sociology told students Thursday.
"The Committee has the power
to punish and defame, while the
communists are weak, snivelling
and unimpressive, said Dr. Stanford Lyman.
He made the" comment while
answering questions ' after his
speech on the film "Operation
Abolition" Thursday.
The committee creates an aura
of fear much more dangerous
than its activities, he said.
In the film, Communist organizers were depicted as inciting
California college students to
riot when the House committee
held hearings in San Francisco
during 1960.
Dr. Lyman, who was faculty
advisor to one of the groups participating in what he called "demonstrations" at the hearings,
described the film as "not cleverly done" propaganda.
He described the leaders of the
demonstration, whom he knew
personally, as democrats and
• republicans.
During the question period
Dr. Lyman said he resented a
questioner's inference that Dr.
Lyman himself had participated
in demonstrations depicted in
the film.
The questioner apologized, admitting he was mistaken.
Dr. Lyman said democracy is
a risk based on the assumption
that truth and justice come from

Layout paradox
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
How many others, I wonder,
were amused by the paradox
which accident or subtile arrangement produced on Page 3
of your Thursday edition? On
the one hand Peter Penz decried the characteristic indifference with which Canadian
university students tend to regard political issues, and suggested that NFCUS should take
steps to stimulate interest in
these controversies to the point
where students might conceivably succeed in shaping public
opinion, might play a real part
in the solution of important
Across the page, however, we
learned that a NFCUS Committee resolution proposing a referendum on the question of
nuclear weapons for Canada
had been rejected by Student
Council. Grounds?, I would "be
getting propaganda for certain
segments," would merely be "a
dissipation of council's energy
and inconclusive in result," a
waste of money. These arguments, including the latter in a
strictly materialistic sense, are
probably valid. But here we
have one of the great issues
facing the Canadian people at
this time, one that our Government has been unable as yet
to resolve.
Perhaps this referendum
would produce inconclusive results. Probably it would engender a good deal of the interest desired by Mr. Penz and
this, I submit, makes it worth
the price.
Students in other countries
often wield an effective and
responsible voice in the conduct of their nation's affairs.
I hope that Council's lack of
energy _ will not prevent us
from finding ours.
Yours truly,
Graduate Studies.
Visit from a stranger
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
On a nice day, by the Bus-
Stop, a young man, well dressed in a grey suitj came to me
and said:
"This is a beautiful garden.
Please tell me in what country
I am?"
I told him he was in Canada,
and he looked surprised:
"But I do not see any snow,
and there are no Indians
The visitor was a Frenchman
named Candide. I knew of his
18th century adventures and
had read he was German. When
I said so, he seemed shocked.
I explained that the pioneers
had gradually linked the country from one ocean to the other.
"This is incredible!" he said.
"Our soldiers left Canada under Louis XV, who decided not
to fight for a few acres of
I presented myself to show
Candide around the campus.
First, we saw the Bookstore.
"What a colorful city of
books!" exclaimed my guest.
"But why do I not see more
works on Montreal and Quebec?"
"I suppose the French-Cana
dians do not share their tradi
tions," I replied.
"Have you ever met the
French-Canadians?" asked Candide.
"No, I only repeat what I
hear around me."
On the way out, Candide told
me that he learned English
without trouble, and that most
of the literary English words
were of French origin.
"What are those boys doing?"
asked Candide, as we watched
a group of Engineers shoving
a passer-by in the Pool. I
viewed this as a nice relaxation from their studies, but my
friend disapproved of the
After seeing the students at
play, we wanted to 'see them
at work, so we entered the
Library. Candide was pleased
to spot a few red sweaters inside. He wished to visit the
French literary branch. We
walked three floors down.
On the shelves were peacefully assembled the Classics and
Romantics 6f French literature.
"Have you read this?" said
Candide, and he reached for a
morocco binding, a study on a
French poet named Leconte de
"No," I said, and glancing
at the back page I noticed the
book was last borrowed in
We walked out. The Engineers were still playing around
the Pool. I told Candide that
there seemed to be more cultural attraction from South to
North than from East to West.
Goodwill and time will unite
two cultures divided by distance. But my friend interrupted me:
"Thank you for being so
kind," he said; and he left me
to follow a pretty co-ed.

Dear Sir:
Last Friday, I had a somewhat unusual experience as a
delegate to the High School
Conference. Arriving at the
Brick Hall for lunch, I was intercepted by two young men
who said they were tour supervisors.
Informing me that there was
to be a field-trip, they placed
me on what they called a "Special Tour" bus for conference
representatives. My hopes for
a grand trip were soon shattered for in ten minutes I was
on the outskirts of some golf
course a few miles from the
Brick Hall. Not knowing where
I was, I stopped a white truck
with a crane and car on the
back and explained my predicament.
Very obligingly, the driver
offered to drive me back! When
I asked him who he was and
what he was doing, he mumbled that he was a tower from
Baster Dowing (?) and that he
was "playing a little game of
hide-go-seek with a student's
Back at the Brick, I was
welcomed by the two supervisors. After apologizing to me
for the inconvenience, they
took the other delegates and
myself to a lecture in the
Buckingham building. The
room was so crowded that I
had to sit on the lap of some
body who was likewise sitting
on somebody's lap. Next we
went to the "stackeds" (?)
where I was told to wait on
the first level. After a considerable time lapse. I started
looking for an exit which I
didn't find until 11:30 p.m.!
First, I would like to thank
the janitor who found me; secondly, I would like to thank
those two fine supervisors who
made this conference a most
memorable experience.
Yours sincerely,
Burnaby S. High School.

Dear Sir:
If war did not come today,
it may come tomorrow.
Assuming that most people
prefer life to death, I hereby
offer an effective solution to
our most pressing problem. The
U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. at a
prearranged time, should each
test one of their missiles by
firing it somewhere into the
other's country.
The advantages of such a test
—of warning systems, civil defence, bomb shelters, missiles,
and warheads—are obvious. In
short, it would be like a dream
come true for many military
There are only two drawbacks to the test, both of which
are outweighed by its advantages. There would be an immediate, though temporary, statistical drop in the world's population (some people hold that
this is desirable). Secondly,
there would be a demand that
governments prepare for peace
instead of war, and the consequent philosophical change
would be too much for the
mental stability of many leaders in government, business and
the military—but then there
would be more money for better care and treatment of such
The test should be held on
April 20. In the meantime, we
can train for survival and perhaps even get the sirens to
work properly.
Yours sincerely,

'I hate that stuff
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I always read the Ubyssey.
I really do. I mean it only takes
three minutes and it's better
than watching those phony
guys eating their crumby sandwiches in the cafeteria. It really
is. I mean it gives you some-
to do. I only read the ads and
the CLASSIFIED on the back
because the rest of it is so goddam phony. I mean who wants
to read stuff about Separation
and that old Canadian Peace
Research Institute? God I hate
that stuff. Then on Wednesday
I got bored reading the ads and
I read that bit Mardi Gras and
Rolf Harris.
That story just about killed
me. It really did. I really got
a bang out of that story. I think
I'll read the Ubyssey all the
way now. Though I'm not too
crazy about old Rolf Harris if
you want to know the truth.

Being somewhat of a conservative, like parking only in "C"
lot, demolishing less than 40
beers, advocating 10 more years
at least for investigating ways
and means of building the Student Union Building, I was quite
shoeked when my gal Salami
wanted to do The Twist at the
last "Pub" party.
Frantically   rushing   into   the
night, I began to form an idea
for a column. As my colleague1
Fred   Fletcher   pointed   out   so'
nastily,   this  would  not be suf-|
ficient.    (Thinking    for   myself
that is.) So here is some back-'
ground lifted from the Ryerson-
ian. :
The phenomenal growth of the
Twist is all because of a 20-year-
old    ex-chicken   pucker   fromi
South   Philadelphia,   Chubby!
Checker. Chubby's raking in the
Toot  from records, movies, and)
one-night "twistalong" sessions.
The Twist has become one of
America's leading exports, although just where it's leading
has become the cause of considerable concern, especially in
Britain. The Duke and Duchess
of Bedford have given the Twist
a try, The London Daily Mirror
has published pictures of the
Duke of Windsor doing the
Twist in a Paris nightclub and
declared that "all" of Britain is
on the Twist. . . the way to wiggle out of your worries is being
danced everywhere."
The London Dance Institute
flatly refuses to teach the Twist.
According to the institute, the
Twist is "far too uninhibited,
and frankly sexy to be performed in Britain and it belongs
in the African bush."
Lebanon has banned the Twist
outright. Government officials
kept their eyes on American
singer Nancy Holloway when she
opened in Beirut.
Strangely enough she was
thrown out of the country for
singing "Let's Waltz Again"
which sounded amazingly like
"Let's Twist Again".
When she asked if she was
being thrown out for Twisting
government officials said, "no,
you're being thrown out for the
way you do the waltz".

Dean of Men suspends
U of Penn student paper
UPS) — The student newspaper
of the University of Pennsylvania has been closed down by the
Dean of Men.
Dean Robert F. Longley issued a directive tp Daily Penn-

The Dean said he was acting
in response to a motion passed
by the Men's Student Government of the university. The resolution was passed after a front
page editorial in the Daily Pennsylvanian had accused the student government of corruption
and had suggested that it be
In an effort to fight the ban,
the editors of the paper sent
telegrams of protest to the Chairman of the University's Board
of Trustees, University President Gaylord P. Harnwell, and
other members of the board.
The emergency messages read,
in part, "The paper considers
this action by the University
Administration an unwarranted
breach of academic freedom, and
in the final analysis it is clearly
outright censorship."
Later the student, government
voted to end the suspension as
soon as a new editorial board
comes into operation. In the
same meeting, however, it refused to approve budget submitted by the paper, accusing it
of misusing the funds previously given it.
Doctors go back to  school'
The  first  of  three  continuing  education, courses for
Vancouver Island doctors opens at the Central Vancouver .
Island Health Unit at Qualicum Beach Thursday.
Object of the program, which is arranged by the department of continuing medical education of the faculty
of medicine of the university, is to provide physicians
with a "continuing medical education" within their own
community in an informal conference-type setting.
The Qualicum Beach conference is being co-sponsored
by the B.C. division of the Canadian Medical Association
and the  Upper Vancouver Island  Medical Society.  The
second  and  third  conferences will  be held  on  April  12 .
and May 3, also at Qualicum Beach.
For each session a department of the faculty of medicine will provide a team of two members of its teaching
staff who will describe recent advances in medical care
in their fields.

Of the rest 13 percent were
engaged in Canadian education,
nine percent in government service, and five percent .were in
Canadian business or industry.
To finance Canadian universities in 19^0-61, $177 million
was required, an increase of 127
percent in five years Dr. Sheffield reported.
By 1965-66 the doctor predicted operating costs would
reach $420 million, a 133 percent increase. Building expedi-
tures have increased four times
in the past five years to about
$60 million in 1960-61. Dr. Sheffield estimated an annual average of $150 million by 1965-66.
"Operating income has been
coming from three principal
sources," he said. "The provincial governments 32 percent, federal government 24 percent, and
tuition fees 24 percent." The
rest comes from endowment income, corporation and individual
gifts and services.

Says American educator
Society  warrants
educational change
An American educator Saturday called for basic changes
in education to bring it in line with the demands of a complex
industrial society.
Speaking to the Vancouver Institute Saturday as education week began,  Dr.  Ralph  Tyler said education has  more
functions to perform than it ever has before.
"Children are born today with
the same amount of knowledge
that they always have been, yet
the society they are born into
has become more complex; education must bridge the gap," he
Dr. Tyler, the director of the
Center for Advanced Study in
the Behavioral Sciences, Palo
Alto, California, said a fundamental reconstruction of the
schools' curricula to teach the
dynamic processes of human society was necessary.' Sociology
and anthropology taught in the
high schools would give students
a better understanding of the
problems in their own society
and others, he said.
"In the United States we teach
students American history and
government; it's no wonder they
think everyone different from
themselves is wrong," he said.
Tyler said that occupational
education must be designed for
general flexibility and long
term continuity. "Automation
has made job security impossible," Tyler said. "A person
might not get his final occupational education until age 75,"
he said.
"In the Soviet Union I came
across programs retraining semiskilled workers to become engineers," said Tyler.
He said society must work to
attain equality of educational opportunity for all young people.
"A child from a home in which
education is not stressed does
not have the same opportunity
as a child who is encouraged
even though the school charges
no fee to either," said Tyler.
"Our schools focus on the middle
class families and attitudes," he
In the Soviet Union children
are taken away from parents
who do not teach them their societal values. "In the Uzbekh
republic 500 years of evolution
was skipped by taking the children away from their parents
and educating them in modern
ways," Dr. Tyler said in an interview following the lecture.
"But," he added, "I wouldn't advocate  this."
"Education must create worthwhile interest and aspirations in
the non-material: ethics, beauty
and the right way of life," Tyler
said. "If Britain had as high a
degree of technology as the U.S.
there  would   be  unemployment
there. The people have not been
educated to demand the services
of higher education, books and
music," he said.
Tyler predicted education
costs would continue to rise.
"Yet we must stop considering
education a consumer product
that we can buy if we like it
and can afford it," he said.
"Education is an investment
of society that actually pays a
higher rate or return than common stocks," he said. "In the
Soviet Union 10 percent of the
gross national product is spent
on education, while in the United
States the amount is only 3.6
Tyler said that the education
system was required to perform
more than the traditional task
of developing potential in individuals and a literate citizenry
for the nations.
"Now it must provide a means
of upward social mobility, train
people for the changes automation has brought about, and create demand for the services this
new society can supply," he

Obsolete laws, acceptance of
censorship, maintenance of an
obsolete school system and the
rise of reactionary movements
like the John Birch Society are
evidence of the mass resistance
to knowledge, he said.
Canadian universities, faced
with ever larger enrolments,
are starting to take steps to
check their  population  growth.
In a cross-country survey, Canadian University Press has
learned that at approximately
15 universities admission standards are about to be, or already
have been raised. Some universities say that their standards are
not being raised primarily to cut
down on numbers, but to improve the calibre of students attending. The effect is still the
same, despite the reason.
Few institutes of higher learning have reached the stage
where they .will have to rent
space away from the campus in
order to accommodate the new
loads of students, but there is
still the possibility this will occur. Wherever possible, the universities and colleges are mixing mortar and bricks arid are
throwing up new buildings on
their own land.
As well, changes in the curricula and timetables are being
made. These, as well as dissuading some students from attending the institutions, will offset
the large lecture classes now encountered on many campuses at
first year level.
What the new academic year
will bring in actual changes is
being kept under wraps by most
administrations for the time toeing, but many admit that
changes will be made in present
organizational set-ups.
At the 21 institutions surveyed, there are now 43 buildings
under construction. These include student residences as well
as academic halls.
Projected construction, due to
start within the next two years
at any of the universities, sees
67 new structures rising on various campuses. McGill University reports it has plans for 10
new buildings in the next decade. At the University of Alberta (both Edmonton and Calgary campuses) another 10
structures will rise from the
prairie lands in the near future.
Almost all Canadian universities expect to have an increased freshman enrolment this
year, although some frankly admit that their present and projected space won't be able to accommodate all needs of the increased enrolment.
Three universities, University
of New Brunswick, Mount Allison University, and Waterloo-
Lutheran College, indicate that
they will not have as many
freshmen for 1962-63 as they did
this year. McGill, which last fall
announced it was going to stand
firm at its present enrolment
this year, says it will have the
same number of freshmen next
year as it did this year: 1850.
McGill expects to have a total
enrolment of 10,400 for the coming   year.
Carleton University in Ottawa
is expecting a jump of approximately 500 students for the coming year to bring its enrolment
to the 2,000-student level. Of
that number 900 are expected to
be in their first year.
At the Calgary campus of the
University of Alberta, another
large increase in enrolment is
expected. This year there were
about 1,500 students registered;
next year it will be close to

To maintain standards
Education investments must rise
By DR.  P. L. McGEER
Faculty of Medicine
We live in an age of rapid
technological advance. The key
to this advance has been education, and education will be
a prerequisite for responsible
leadership in the competitive
world of tomorrow. Canadians
.seem to appreciate this fact,
for the able youth of the country are flooding to university
campuses as never before. According to an estimate just released by the Canadian Universities Foundation, university
enrollment in Canada will increase from 114,000 to 311,000
in the decade 1961 to 1971.
• •    *
This estimate is sharply up
from one made only two years
ago  by  this same  foundation.
>- There is no doubt university
education is in demand all
across the nation; the only question is, can it be provided in
.- the quality and quantity desired? For British Columbians
the answer must be no, unless
much more money is invested
in the university system in the
future than has been invested
in the past few years.
Even to maintain -present
standards,  the nation is going
> to have to spend much more
on university construction in
the next decade than in its
whole previous history. Oper-
well underway on a six-year,
large numbers of outstanding
scholars must be recruited to
enlarge faculties. Otherwise it
will be less, instead of more,
that is available to the university student of tomorrow.
• •   •
How can we estimate what
future expenditures must be?
One way is to take the expected
number of students and multiply by $10,000 to arrive at a
total   desirable   for   facilities,

and $2,000 to arrive at a total
satisfactory for annual operation. These figures per student
are representative of many
large universities in North
America. How does the University of British Columbia
stand up to these figures? With
the present enrollment of about
13,000, the University of British Columbia should now have
$130 million worth of facilities
and an operating budget of
about $26 million. We fall short
by almost half, which helps to
account for the woeful shortage of dormitories, the use of
300 shacks for lectures and for
many other activities, the extremely small graduate school,
and the highest student-faculty
ratio of any major Canadian
university. By 1971, university
enrollment in British Columbia
will be well past the 32,000
mark. This means that we
should plan to spend roughly
$200 million for university construction in the next decade,
and that we should anticipate
operating budgets in excess of
$60 million per year by" 1971.
• • • •
Such sums of money are well
beyond the reach of private
capital. In the past, about two-
thirds of all the money available  to   Canadian  universities
has come from governments.
This proportion will need to be
maintained in the future if we
are to encourage a system in
which the bright, rather than
the wealthy, have opportunities
for a first class education.
In British Columbia we have
had nowhere near the financial
support from the Provincial
Government necessary to maintain our relative standard of
university education. Only $10
million has been appropriated
for capital construction in the
past decade, and projections
through 1968 call for appropriations of only $10 million more.
The university population in
British Columbia is now great
enough to justify higher educational facilities in every major geographical area of the
Province. Money is nowhere in
sight to provide this badly
needed system of colleges, and,
if it were, it would still be some
years before the colleges could
be completed and staffed. It is
ironic that this should be the
situation in British Columbia
where, in terms of the percentage of population attending
university, there is the greatest
demand for university education in the country.
In contrast to British Columbia, other provinces in Canada
have moved boldly to provide
facilities for the unprecedented
upsurge in university populations.  Newfoundland,  for   ex-
ample, has just spent $19 million on a breathtaking new university for a student population
one-tenth our own. Quebec, immediately after the Lesage government took over, instituted
a five year, $35 million-per-year
program to provide facilities
for a student population roughly  three  times our  own. Just
this year, the Provincial Legislature of Ontario voted large
sums of money to its universities despite the fact that it is
ahead of most provinces in university ^construction. Alberta is
well underway on a sixyear,
$64 million building program
to supply facilities for a student population one-half the
size of our own. It seems clear
that British Columbia is falling
far behind the national pace
in providing for higher education.
• • *
Although other provinces
may lead British Columbia,
there is reason to wonder
whether, in any segment of our
nation, we have struck that
magic proportion of outstanding scholarship, availability of
facilities, and social encouragement, necessary to develop the
latent genius of the nation. In
sixty years, Canada has won
only one Nobel Prize in all
science fields, whereas smaller
countries, such as Holland and
Sweden, have won seven or
eight, and the United States has
won thirty-eight in medicine
alone. Similar examples might
be cited for countless other
fields of endeavor.
A foreignei once remarked
that Canada was, is, and always
will be the country of the future. We have, in many ways,
vnot lived up to our own hopes
nor to the expectations of
others. We have always been
a frontier country, proud of our
great natural resources. But
until we learn to develop the
potential of our greatest resource, the brains of our people,
the development of our "nr-
tural" resources may continue
to benefit others more than

Foreign students
hurt by remarks
Foreign students often misunderstand the intention of remarks made to them by Canadians, Dr. A. G. McCalla, dean
of graduate studies at the University of Alberta, said here Saturday.
He suggested a sort of sensitivity test be given overseas
students before they come to
The number of nervous breakdowns among foreign students is
substantially greater than that
of Canadian students and results
from the pressures of adaption,
said John Haar, director of
UBC's International House.
"One of the problems they
continually face if they are not
on scholarship is the financial
one," he said. "If they are not
steered clear of the pitfalls such
as the North American idea of
nothing down and three generations to pay they can be in serious trouble."
One of the problems currently
facing Canadian universities is
the selection of foreign students,
said Dean George Curtis of law,
who head the Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship program.
"Three years ago there were
750 applicants from India for
14 scholarships to Canada and
this year there will be 1,800 for
the same number of places," he
said. "This represents a tremendous problem in selection of
those who will most benefit
from   the experience."

Father David Bauer's hockey Thunderbirds may be the fastest team on ice, but they're not the winning'est. Lower your eyebrows. Never heard of The Ubyssey Broomhandlers? So far, this
.jHustrious  collection  of  pseudo-athletes  has  won   two   games,
tied one, and lost one in just under two years of strenuous competition.
"We are, without doubt, the best broomball team ever assembled anywhere,"  bragged always-outspoken coach Fearless
_J. Fletcher, chewing on a ten-cent cigar.
"We," he continued after Saturday's latest encounter at the
North Shore Winter Club, "are not only new, but we sweep
clean, unlike those (ugh) residence and fraternity teams."
Fearless was referring to the game his team was called
upon to play with no more than five minutes' notice.
As a result, the broomballers suffered their only tie of
their lengthy career, being shut out by an obscure substitute
resident goalie named Gnup, who ruined an obvious goal by
The Ubyssey's ace forward line in the dying seconds of the game.
"This guy was a ringer," complained Fearless after the
game. "Not only has he not been in residence for 35 years, but
tie's an American import."
Broomball games, unlike those of Canadian football, do
not allow imported talent.
"And did you notice he was using a grasshockey stick, not
a broom," said Fletcher. "We plan to protest this game. Imagine, •
allowing outside players to compete on a UBC team! That's
positively immoral!"
(A subsequent meeting of a completely impartial rules committee has banned Gnup from further competition and 'sentenced
him to two months without cigars.)
Meanwhile, in between periods of the broomball match,
Father Bauer's hustling Birds were putting on one of their best
showings of the year before a packed North Shore audience.
Birds, although they lose veterans Denny Selder, Chern Singh
and Ken Smith next yea>„, will undoubtedly win their share of
games for the first time in many years. And, if the new campus
aiena gets built before Doomsday, UBC athletics will win a few
thousands new fans, also for the first time in many years.

Birds cap third
unbeaten season
UBC Thunderbirds wrapped up their third successful
season of WCIAU basketball by defeating the University of
Alberta Golden Bears 67-55 and 76-62 in Edmonton.
The pair of weekend victories   ~ " '
enabled the defending champion
Thunderbirds to .complete the
'61-62 schedule without a loss.
UBC clinched the title the
previous weekend with two victories over the same club.
Friday's game saw Thunderbirds come back from a 33-30
halftime deficit to win in a walk.
A 12-point outburst in the early
stages of the third quarter put
them ahead 42-37.
Leading UBC once again were
Dave Way and Laurie Predinchuk, both with 16 points. Jack
Lusk added 10.
Saturday, Birds were never in
danger, easing to victory behind
Way's 17 points. Dae Nelson and
Dave Black each added 13 points
and Wayne King had eight.
Way, scoring 33 points in the
two games, cinched the league
scoring title. He scored 136
points in eight games for a 17-
per-game average.
His closest competitor was
Maury Van Vliet of Alberta who
averaged 13.4 per game. A second Bird, Laurie Predinchuk,
brought up from the Jayvees in
mid-season, finished fourth in
the scoring race with an 11.6
Predinchuk also topped the
league in shooting percentage,
going into the final two games
with a .535 average. Way was
second in this department with
a .494 average. Their closest rival was Pat Lawson from Saskatchewan who hit on 38 percent
of his shots.
Way not only won the scoring title but he led the league
in offensive rebounds, defensive
• rebounds and personal fouls. All
but the final item should help
in his attempt to keep the Most
Valuable Player trophy at UBC
for a third consecutive year.
