Council won't  let faculty
make eligibility stopgap
StiJI  no  rules  for
2nd slate elections
A motion to ask the Faculty Council to make interim
eligibility rules for student officers was defeated by student
council late Monday night.
After a heated debate on the question of eligibility rules
for the second slate of AMS elections, the Council voted nine-
four not to put the question to the Faculty Council.
The defeated motion was proposed by President Alan
Cornwall. Vice-president Eric Ricker chaired the meeting
during the three-hour debate so Cornwall could speak freely
on the issue.
Councillors expressed the opinion that they would be
evading their responsibility if they passed the question on to
higher authority. (Faculty Council may over-rule student
council.) "*\
Cornwall said the council would be in default of its duties
if eligibility rules were not established.
Student President Alan Cornwall said Monday night he
would use  any legal  means to
see that eligibility rules are
established for the forthcoming
Alma   Mater  Society   elections.
He made this statement following a student council decision not to put eligibility rules
before the students with the first
slate Wednesday.  ;
Student Court Friday ruled
the present eligibility rules invalid because the B.C. Societies
Act requires that bylaws affecting the rights of individuals
must be passed by the general
membership of the society.-(See
story page 3.)

act in the best interests of the
students and I feel that it is in
these best interests to see that
the society is protected from being represented by academically
ineligible members."
A petition signed by 100 students was presented to the council requesting that a set of
eligibility rules (printed below)
be put before the student body
by referendum.
Secretary Lynn McDonald
proposed that the referendum
be put at the same time as the
first slate of elections in order
to have valid eligibility rules
for the second slate.
Chas. MacLean, Law undergraduate society president,
charged that such an action
would be "railroading".
"This kind of thing would be
highly improper and in my view
illegal," he said. "Notice of ten
days is required for an amendment to the constitution."
REFERENDUM DUTY
"You have a duty to see that
the referendum goes in front of
the students in the correct manner," MacLean said.
Engineering president, Terry
Guest, said, "It would be audacity" on the part of the council
to put such a proposal before
the students with only .24 hours
notice.
Roger McAfee, Ubyssey editor-
inrchief, told the council it is
necessary for the society to have
eligibility rules as a sign of their
responsibility. '"If we don't provide eligibility rules, the administration will," he said.
Guest and MacLean said the
administration would not be
too concerned because two slates
of elections will be run without
rules. ;
CASTING RULES
"They realize rules will be
forthcoming which will last for
many years, not just these elections."
Vice-president Eric Ricker
said the question was not what
the administration would think.
"We -have to decide whether
we must have eligibility rules
or whether it is more important
to give adequate notice for the
referendum," he said.
The council defeated a referendum proposal and passed a
motion to put eligibility rules
before the students at the spring
general meeting.
PETITION PROPOSALS
Here are the eligibility rules
as propsed in the petition:
1. a) A student, to hold any
AMS office as defined in
Article 1 of the AMS Code,
must be an active member of
the Alma Mater Society as
defined in the constitution
Bylaw 1, and be enrolled in
at least nine (9) units of University work.
b) In addition freshmen and
sophomore students as defined
by the constitution, Bylaw 1
(except A officers) must pass
at. the ^Christmas examinations
during their term of office
the equivalent to the number
of units required for attain*
ment of credit in the sessional
examinations, in accordance
with regulations laid down
by the registrar.
2. TO RUN FOR OFFICE
a) A student must have attained credit in his immediately p r e c e d i n g sessional
examinations in the year in
which he was registered, in
accordance with the regulations laid down by the registrar*

Professional officers?
Student President Alan Cornwall said Monday he would
try by every legal means to have eligibility rules to apply to
the second slate.
Council, at the same meeting, voted against asking Faculty
Council to make a decision on behalf of the council on the
question of eligibility.
The question arose after a long, much-interrupted debate
on the question of student eligibility to run for and hold office.
We have never seen such a drawn out, mixed up affair
in three years of "council viewing." The debate was stalled
several times by the delaying tactics of Chas. MacLean, president of th* Law Undergraduate Society. His complete reversal
of field was at times astounding!
Few councillors seemed to realize the gravity of the situation.
Some feel that it is unnecessary to have any eligibility
regulations before the March general meeting. Yet these
same people were the ones who last week stated they wished
to see eligibility rules effected immediately, and even put
forth a good set of rules!
How does one reconcile the two opposing views from the
same "responsible" group?
One of council's responsibilities is to come up with a
decision when faced with a problem. If for some reason it
cannot, it then has to refer the matter to a body which is capable of doing so.
This body  is the  Faculty Council.
And The Ubyssey wholeheartedly supported the motion
that the question of eligibility be put to that body for a ruling
—until such time as the AMS can work out the problem. We
stress the last phrase: until such time as the AMS can work
out the problem.
AMS needs eligibility rules, especially in the face of the
fact that one of the present nominees for treasurer failed to
pass his sessional exams last April. Since then, he has failed
two summer session courses, failed Christmas exams and also
dropped a Course during the first term. (He passed only nine
units. Twelve are required in his faculty for a pass.)
With the present state of affairs—i.e., no eligibility rules—
councillors could turn into "professional office holders" and
by paying little or no attention to studies could remain in
office as long as they could get electoral support.
Council could become a repository for students lacking
either the diligence or intelligence to meet the minimal academic standards of this institution. This must not happen and
The Ubyssey believes Faculty Council should, and we hope
will, take action in this case. We urge them to make the decision which council was unable to make.

Suggest debate
Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
The Ubyssey editorial of
Feb. 1 reads "With local politics becoming more 'interesting' and with the birth of new
political factions, both rightists and leftists . . . ". We
would suggest the communists
and the anti-communists put
forth their views at a public
student debate with discussion
from the floor. The topic we
would suggest is "Be it resolved that an anti-communist
league should be formed on
the campus."
If the accepted rules of debating were followed, the opponents could air their views,
and try to rebut their opponents' views, but it would not
be permissible to attack their
opponents themselves. In this
way, the name-calling might
stop, and the real issues might
come to light.
Both groups are asked to indicate their willingness to debate by leaving their names in
the Debating Union box.
Yours truly,
PETER HEBB

Dear Sir:
Reply to Boylan
Poor, misguided Gharlie-Boy!
Having re-read your supercharged ATTACK of January
25 on self-admitted fascists
with German aecehts, I hasten
to convey my deepest sympathies! Your letter would
have given me and the boys
much pleasure and amusement,
had not melancholy reflections
come with it. To have you, the
campus commissar, speak condescendingly of other people's
accents evokes memories of
certain individuals struggling
to dig their master's voice and
failing to make the grade! Am
I coming through, Charlie-Boy,
or is the accent bothering you?
However, accents being a
relatively minor point, let us
turn to recent . immigrants in
general. Being born in this
country is a privilege which,
should not be abused. We have
voted for Canada "With our
feet", would you have the intestinal fortitude to do as much
for your cause? Having lived
behind the iron curtain myself
once, I would strongly recommend the place to all those native-born Canadians who smear
their political opponents with
swastikas.
To say, however, that your
political opponents on this
campus consist of "a group of
self-admitted fascists, the majority of whom" you have met
"being recent immigrants from
West Germany," that, Charlie-
Boy, is a lie! As a matter of
fact, I hereby challenge you
to produce one such individual!

Every morning before the 8:30

'What we stand for'
Mr. Benko's letter is being
re-run today because the printers and proofreaders failed to
notice two lines were omitted
when the letter ran Friday.
Here is the letter in full, we
hope, with, the omitted lines in
bold face.—ed.
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
You have used a considerable amount of space in your
paper to attack our viewpoint
and even to smear our group
and we consider it only fair to
be given an opportunity to present our side of the story.
On Friday, Jan. 12, one of
our members visited UBC to
have a private talk with a few
students, among them Mr. A.
LaCroix. We did not expect
that this meeting would be publicized. The fact that it did
come to your attention makes
Us wonder what type of man is
this Mr. LaCroix.
In your issue of Ubyssey of
Jan. 16 you had already two
articles dealing with this visit
and our group. In the first article wild and inaccurate statements were made. Our group
was called "John Birch-style
party" although Mr. LaCroix
was told that there is absolutely no connection between us
and that society. Then it was
suggested that a connection
existed between our group and
the Social Credit party which
is also untrue.
In the same number you had
an editorial dealing with our
petition. You gave this matter
great attention. And rightly so.
But, unfortunately, you turn
matters upside down. Instead
of seeing clearly who-is threatening not only our freedom but
our very existence you generously encourage these same
people to continue their work.
We are not against freedom of
speech for anybody. What we
are against is subversive and
criminal conspiracy and lies.
We are against organized terrorism which is already working in Vancouver. And how
many other clubs would be
permitted to operate at UBC
if there were only 500 Communists there. We can ansv/er
this  for you—NONE.
We would expect young, educated men to rise against the
Communist terror and brutality especially after the Hungarian people were mercilessly
crushed after the Berlin Wall
was erected and after the 50-
megaton bomb of terror was
exploded. We would expect
you to loathe and abhor these
people that keep, not a few individuals, but entire nations
jailed. Don't you know that the
borders of all Communist countries are covered with barbed
wire, mines and towers with
machine gun emplacements?
You accuse us of being unjust to Communists. But can
the word justice and communism  ever  come together.
If your father were killed by
these "freedom-seeking people"
(freedom for their own ends);
if your sister were raped by
the soldiers of the Red Army;
if your brother were rotting in
a forced labor camp; if you
have seen Katyn where 10,000
Poles were massacred or Vini-
ca where mass graves were discovered under public parks; if
you escaped from the river of
death where Yugoslav Communists slaughtered 20,000
men; if you had gone through
a torture chamber where modern brainwashing is done and
strong men are reduced to
nothingness; then you would
not be so generous to Communists. To be sure, if they
ever come to power in Canada
they will not thank you for
your generosity. They consider
you even today to be a decadent product of a decadent society who have neither courage
nor conscientiousness to fight
for survival of your society
and yourselves.
The Communist party has
been outlawed twice in Canada
for the crimes, in the words of
Hon. Mr. Justice Wright, of
"teaching the overthrow of
governmental or economic institutions by force and violence." But this is not the answer. The answer must be
found in you and me and in
free men everywhere. We must
stand up for human rights and
work, fight and even die to
stop the criminal assault on
every source of our happiness
and our human dignity.
There is no time to bicker
and argue. The Communists
are working day and night all
around the world to bury you
and me. If we fight we might
live. If we wait they will surely bury -us.
Arise young men! Look
clearly and bravely at your
own future. Don't let Communists and their followers cloud
your mind and weaken your,
courage.
This is our answer to your
writing. Now you know better
what we stand for.
Yours truly,
G.  BENKO,
Graduate,
Sopron Division
of Forest Faculty.

Council  lacks  power
to set eligibility rules
THE      UBYSSEY
Page 3
By BOB HENDRICKSON
Students who have failed
their academic year will be eligible for second slate student office positions in this year's election. |
The open-door policy followed
a^court decision which said student council lacks power under
the B.C. Societies Act to set eligibility rules.
. The court ruled that eligibility
rules can be set only by a general meeting of students, by student referendum or by faculty
council on request from student
council.
. Effect of the ruling will be
that students failing their previous sessional examinations will
still be eligible for office.
^ In the past, students have had
to pass at least nine units and
have a 50 per cent average to
hold office.
The eligibility question was
put to student court after council decided to tighten up certain
areas of the old rules.
In bringing down its decision,
court said the B.C. Societies Act
prohibits a society from delegating the power to make eligibility rules.
They also concluded that the
question need not be decided
because the society has not delegated such power to the student" council even if it could.
■■ "Chief Justice Lance Finch
commented on bylaw 3(6) which
reads in part student council
shall "have full control of all
activities—and any rule made by
it—shall be considered as final
and binding."
From page 1
Candidates speak
pose that Brock should house
mainly administrative offices
while the Student Union building be devoted to social activities.'
He proposed the name of the
new building be "The Dr. Norman MacKenzie Student Union
Building".
Another presidential candidate, Eric Ricker, stressed the
need for continuity in developing the new student government.
"UBC must maintain its student autonomy at all costs,"
Ricker said.
He said he sees the proposed
Student Union building as the
centre of student unity.
Third presidential candidate
Doug Stewart maintained that
the additional two million dollars needed for the Student
Union building must be raised.
"The student government has
an obligation to the students of
this university to find means of
raising the additional money,"
Stewart said.
But he said he believes student and alumni co-operation
would be required.
Other candidates' platforms:
Mike Hanson: "Centralize university public relations."
Bob MaeKay: "Educate the
public in the true aims of our
institution."
Ed Lavalle: "It is imperative
that a public relations officer
be qualified for the position."
Barb Bennett: "Push building
program,"
Miriam, Sapiro: "Main concern
at nioment is to thank the
people- wfaft havg stood behind
me te %is ca^mnaign,"'
"If this is to be interpreted to
mean council has power to make
eligibility rules then they could
limit eligibility to 'members of
the society whose names start
with the letter A,' to students
who are fraternity members or
to students who have previously
held a student office," he commented.
"The effect of such power
would be ridiculous and for that
reason I do not think the power
was granted to student council,"
he added.
"There are eligibility rules in
the AMS code, but they are not
the AMS's.
"One must conclude from this
that members must meet the
standard set by eligibility rules
that are non-existent," Finch
said.

Rightist students jeered communist speaker Harold Pritchett
at a noon hour meeting Friday.
Many students, members of
the new campus anti-communist
group, repeatedly interrupted
Pritchett with derogatory
shouts.
I     One    student    stood   up   and
1 shouted hysterically when Prit-
; chett mentioned Nazi concentration camps.
"Who lived in concentration
camps ...?" the hecklers
asked. "Come on, talk about
Russian camps!"
Pritchett asked where 13,000
UBC students were to find work
this summer, and he was told:
"In Siberia."
! Pritchett was interrupted repeatedly by students trying to
refute his arguments. Some of
these attempted to make
speeches of their own but were
howled down by the rest of the
audience.
"America is governed by the
munition makers of Wall
Street," said Pritchett. Then a
student in the audience asked:
"Who make* the bombs of th,e
Soviet government", and someone else added:
"Who makes the bigger
bomb?"
"What is happening in Cuba
will happen all over South America," Pritchett claimed. "The
Cubans are now farming for the
people and not for absentee
landlords."
At one point a  student, who
remained     unidentified     apologized  to Pritchett  for  the  bad.

Communist party provincial
organizer Charles Caron was
treated a little more gently
Monday when he tried to tell
students at a noon hour meeting that Canada is becoming a
colony of the United States.
"Canada," he told a heckling
audience, "has lost control oyer
her economy, her defence and
her policy making."
As Caron spoke the lights
went on and off and his remarks
brought hisses and jeers. In the
past he has been heckled and
pelted with food.
He offered communism as the
means to regaining Canada's
lost nationality.
He complained repeatedly of
U.S. "imperialism."

Ban,'bottle and bomb'
sayP&arry Mather
*<"" By PAT HORROBIN
Barry Mather-wants to put Canada on the wagon.
"We're like the man making $240 a month and wasting a
hundred of it on liquor and cigarettes," Mather, federal New
Democrat candidate for New Westminster, said of the Canadian budget
Forty cents comes off every
tax dollar for armaments and
interest on loans, he told a student audience.
Mather isn't content to preach
against the Bomb, the bottle and
the weed only from his lower
left-hand corner of the Vancouver Sun's front page.
"I want to try to rectify this
on a national level," he said.
The New Democratic Party
he pictured as '". . .a fresh
breeze through the stale backrooms of the status quo," and a
coming force in politics in spite
of the fact, "we don't have either
the $12 million and $5 million
the Tories and Liberals are supposed to have had the last time
around."
It's the nickels, dimes and
quarters coming from all sides
that are backing the NDP, he
said.
"And that's the way we want
it. We don't want to feel obligated to the corporations, like
the others have to," Mather said.
He said the New Democratic
Party will be elected, take over
monopolies, expand the co-operative movement, establish investment boards to invest funds
where needed, and have full
housing by 1967.
It opposes nuclear testing and
additions to the nuclear club;
favors recognition of any effective government in the world—
"right, left or centre"; advocates
reductions of tariffs; and will
sponsor student exchanges.
An NDP government would
stay in NATO but stay out of the
Organization of American
States, be said. *
The NDP wants Canada to
have a distinctive national anthem and flag by 1967, Centennial year.
"Internationally, we want to
see doors and windows now
closed opened up wide and light
let in on prejudices there today,"
Mather said.
He admitted he and other
loca^ journalists would have
pretty meagre chances of being
able to speak their minds, if
they were writing for American
newspapers.
Europe trips

National Federation of Canadian University Students
has begun negotiations that
could mean ai $350 saving to
future travellers to Europe.
' UBC NFCUS committee
Dave Anderson said Thursday
negotiations are underway
with a "name airline" to charter flights for $280 return per
person.
Present cost of the return
trip is $623, he said.
"If the airline meets our requests the charter will take
effect in the summer of 1963,"
he said.

Nick Omelusik
*      As   AMS   president,  I   would
attempt to:
• reopen student government revision. While it is too
early to bury the new system,
it possesses certain inherent
weaknesses which will continue to make it ineffective.
- .'.:• i nc r ease : communication
-between " council and the student body by means of regular
public addresses, newspaper
articles and radio reports.
• establish a student police
force.   ..;•;..-■■
• eliminate f e u d i n g and
petty   squabbling   among   stu-
..S*. -dent councillors -by providing
• ';; istcong leadership*.
• eliminate some of the less
defensible aspects of B & G
parking policy, such as impounding cars illegally parked
in our "spacious" lots.
• establish cordial relations
with   the   new  university   ad-
.   ministration.
Eric Ricker
Major problems facing the
students next year are fourfold:
• planning the new student
union building.
• establishing a firm working relationship with the new
university administration.
• striving for greater government aid tq students
through employment, bursaries, and loans.
- • evaluating and improving
the new structure of student
government.
I feel all these major problems must be handled by a
well-qualified president.
I have held the positions of
vice-president and second member on student , council and
have spent three years on Fort
Camp executive.
My experience in student
affairs during my five years
on campus has given me the
necessary insight to help solve
these problems.
Doug Stewart
The 1962-63 student council
will face such challenges as:
attaining close relations with
a new administration; raising
funds to supplement present
Student Union Building finances; ensuring completion of
Winter Sports Centre; attempting to iron out^difficulties that
have arisen over the past year
in our representative system of
student government.
I feel my experience — vice-
president and president of Victoria College, member of last
year's NFCUS and Open House
executives> present AMS coordinator of activities — has
given me the ability to meet
these challenges.
It is my sincere desire to
serve you well. Thus, I hope
you will vote Doug Stewart
for president.
Campus political platforms
Communist
All people want peace! A
world without arms is a world
without wars. Total world disarmament now! No .nuclear
arms on Canadian soil. There
can be no equivocation on
peace. Join and vote for the
party that daily fights for a
peaceful world.
Communists alone stand
for regaining our national independence. Today Canada is a
vassal of American monopolies.
This must change! We are nobody's pawn. A Canada, free,
independent and neutral of
NATO, NORAD and the
O.A.S., that is the goal of
young and progressive Canada.
Each year our university
graduates a number-of scientists, engineers and chemists.
Many are compelled to migrate
to the U.S.
Yet every deserving student
does not even get the opportunity to attend college! All Canadians who academically qualify must have the full opportunity to have the best education available—free.
Make your vote count. Swell
the Communist voice with your
support. VOTE COMMUNIST
FOR p-iSACEi INDEPENDENCE, AND A FULL EDUCATION FOR ALL!
Liberal
Liberalism is a responsible
attitude toward the obligations
of good government.
We pledge that Canada will
not become an independent
nuclear power. We cannot
pledge no nuclear arms for
Canada without also pledging
to break the treaties and international commitments we now
have with our allies. Liberals
do not want nuclear arms but,
in event of war, we might have
to accept them, possibly under
NATO control. This is the only
responsible stand to take on
this serious question.
Pensions: The Liberal Club
does not believe in irresponsible, I'll match you and raise
you ten vote-winning policies.
It wants to set a fair pension
at a base year and pledges
increases in the pension in
accordance with the consumer
price index.
These are two examples of
what the Liberal Club believes
to be a responsible platform.
Our full platform is available
today at campus polling points.
Study it and remember to vote
tomorrow.

As a government, the New

The goal of the New Democratic Party is the creation of
a social and economic environment which will enable every
individual to achieve the best
of which he is capable.
We pledge ourselves to:
• never permit nuclear
weapons on Canadian soil or
in the hands of our forces overseas. We will promote international disarmament under adequate inspection.
• divert funds spent on
weapons to foreign aid channelled through the United Nations.
• end unemployment and
stagnation by economic planning.
• break U.S. control over

of student "misbehavior".
The foundations have been
laid; what is needed now is a
director familiar -with the intricate problems facing student-
public relations. My experience
is at your service.
- Ed LavaHe -
Second vice - president requires a broad knowledge of
the administrative aspects of
student government plus the
necessary experience to be
public relations officer.
My experience in both areas
will help me, if elected:
-   • to   continue   the  present
centralized     public    relations
policy.
• to pursue a vigorous public relations program to assist
the  search  for  student  union
building funds.
• to expand student publications, broadcasting and newspaper outlets.
• to advocate better common room facilities for undergraduate societies.
• to uphold the fundamental
duty of the council executive
to represent the students' interests in all endeavors.
- Bob MacKay —
The 2nd vice-president must
be primarily concerned with
public relations. The coming
year will present challenges
and problems—which can best
be solved with the understanding and support of the public.
To gain this support, all
news media must be made
aware  of campus happenings.
I am prepared to spend the
time necessary to do this. I
have had three years experience in the fields of newspaper
advertising and public relations and would be honored to
use my experience on your behalf as your representative on
council.

Columbians.
• the sensible attitude of the
federal government toward
nuclear arms for defensive and

• continued federal government grants to universities
which have, increased 66 percent in the last four years.
Social Credit
Social Credit is not a party
of the extreme right. The political philosophy of Social
Credit is as unalterably opposed to dictatorship, fascism
and anti-semitism as it is to
communism, socialism, and the
welfare state. The foundations
upon which the political platform of Social Credit rests are
the democratic rights and freedoms which are vital to our
way of life.
The platform of the Social
Credit Party of Canada is composed of positive, tangible and
realistic proposals. We are opposed to nuclear arms for Canada. We advocate immediate
entry into OAS.
We are convinced that the
desperate and ever-increasing
crisis that faces this nation in
the form of compounding national debt can eventually be
resolved by applying sound
business principles in the management of federal undertakings.
We. have something concrete
to offer this country and need,
your support. If you agree with
the proposals put forth, we ask
you to vote Social Credit on

UBC's defending-champion Birds lost their grasp on the
McKechnie Cup Saturday when they were soundly defeated
1,1-0 by the powerful Vancouver Reps.
Without   the    aid   of    Peter
of
Bugg, Peter Marrett, and cap
tain John Phillips, Birds could
never sustain a threatening attack on the slippery field. The
Birds were forced into playing
a defensive game with the ball
kept mainly in their own end
of the field. As a result, they
elected to kick for the sidelines
but lost most of the lineouts.
In the first half, the Reps held
the edge in-play. With about 15
minutes gone, Reps' Barry Burn-
ham, scored a penalty kick to
give them a 3-0 lead at balftime.
The Reps had two other opportunities to add to their score
but were stopped short of the
goal line.
; Scrum play was. about even
but the Reps' passing wasn't up
to par—etberwise the score
qould hftve been higher.
The latter part of the second
half1 proved to. be the mast excit
ing. Birds played with 14 men
for about five minutes when
Gordie Olafson was hurt, but he
returned to finish the gale. It
was when the Birds were short-
handed that they came closest to
scoring.
Hooker Dave Gibbs nearly
grabbed a loose ball at the Reps'
goal line but was beaten out by
Ted Hunt.
Reps once again took the ball
to UBC's end of the field and
kept, pressing. Finally the dam
broke and the Reps' superiority
showed. Forward Dave Vance
plunged over the goal line to
give Vancouver a 6-Q lead.
Hunt's convert was wide. A few
minutes later Hunt grabbed the
ball in his own end of the field
and faked out two UBC defenders to score the last try of the
game. He kicked the convert to
end the scoring.
Regular meeting of the
Men's A t h 1 et i c Association
will be held Wednesday in
Bu. 225.
Awards cards for Men's Big

third at Banff
UBC's skiers finished third in
the 16th International collegiate
meet in Banff over the weekend.
The University of Washington
took the championship with
383.8 points. Defending champion Montana State College was
second with 364.3 and UBC
came third with 3275.
Alberta, McGill, and Montana
State University trailed.
Jim Logan of UBC was tops
individually for Thunderbirds,
placing fifth in the cross-coaa-
try.
Of busy week
Birds get off
to flying start
UBC Thunderbirds completed the first phase of a busy
ten days of basketball by downing St. Martin's College Rangers 71-56 and 77-67 over the weekend.
For    the   Birds,    these   two
the
matches were simply tuneups
for a much more powerful opponent, the national team Jrom
Peru, which will challenge
Birds Wednesday night and
Thursday noon.
U.S. TOUR
The Peruvians have been
touring the United States and
have recently played games
against University of Manitoba
Bisons and University of Saskatchewan Huskies, two of
Birds Western Intercollegiate
League rivals. Last Wednesday,
Peru defeated the Bisons 74-62.
Leading the Peruvians is a
brother act. Ricardo and Raul
Duarte are both 6'8" and the
mainstay of the team's offence.
Ricardo is the leading rebounder
and top scorer, averaging 25
points a game.
POOR CROWDS
Last weekend, in games which
drew the usual paltry handful
of spectators, Birds completely
outclassed a disappointing St.
Martin's team. Friday, led once
again by 6'4" centre Dave Way's
20 points, Birds had little
trouble in chalking up their
sixth victory in their last seven
outings.
Breaking fast behind the eight
first-quarter points of Dave
Black, Birds slowed down only
when coach Jack Pomfret inserted his second string.
Saturday was a different,
story. Down 17-11 at the end of
the first quarter, Birds were
forced to fight from behind for
their victory. Wayne Osborne
with 20 points and John Cook
with 16 paced UBC's scorers.
JAYVEES  LOSE
The. Jayvees reversed the
Birds' trend by dropping a pair
to Olympic Junior College of
Bremerton, Wash. Friday night,
despite Gordon McKay's 19
points, Jayvees dropped a nip-
and-tuck battle 65-61. Saturday,
Olympia overpowered the ' Jayvees 72-63. McKay with 15 and
Ken McDonald and Mike Well-
ings with 14 apiece led the Jayvees.
There were two new faces in
the Jayvees lineup Saturday.
Both Mike Wellings and Doug
Latta were moved from the
Birds, partly to get more experience, and partly to fill, the
gap left by the departure of
high scorer Earl Farenhplz, who
wants to spend more time Von
studies.

FOR THE BIRDS
By  MIKE HUNTER
For the record, people, a Thunderbirds-New Westminster
Bakers basketball game won't come off this year. It probably
won't next year, either.
The game is ai natural—Bakers are the best team in B.C.
and perhaps in Canada. They're entirely composed of UBC
grads arid students. UBC has for the past two years won the
Western Intercollegiate championship and is on its way to another this year. The Birds have lost but one game in 27 since
they joined the league. They're probably the best college team
in Canada. But the two teams won't meet.
The Bakers and Birds play regularly within 15 miles of
each other, and regular crowds of one or two hundred souls
show up to watch tnem. Match 'em in Memorial gym any night
of the week and you'd have 3,000 fans craning their necks to
watch Ken Winslade display his feathery jump shot while some
lanky forward like Dave Way chases him. But we won't see it
this year, and probably not in '63.
v •*• v
Three thousand fans. At 50 cents apiece,  that's $1,500—
about one-sixth UBC's entire basketball budget for the year,
including travelling expenses. It's enough money to get a team
like the Peruvian Nationals here for six games. But it's money '"
we'll never get our hands on. Not this year.
How come the Bakers get so much publicity in the downtown papers? Are they better than the Birds? If Keith Hartley
and Mike Potkonjak and Bill McDonald and Ed Wild and Glen
and Barry Drummond and Ken Winslade and Ed Pederson were
playing for the Birds this year, would The Sun and The Province be raving? Who knows?
•T* *t* *f"
Any local basketball fan could go on and on listing reasons
why a Birds-Bakers game should take place. Unfortunately, it's
all wishful thinking.
The reason: politics.
Both teams are reluctant to hold such a game not because
they don't think it would be a good one—far from it, in fact.
They are reluctant to hold it because of the very controversial
nature of their relationship. People would (shame) find some answers to the questions they've been asking. They'd start drawing
conclusions. Both sides think these conclusions would be bad.
UBC says Western Intercollegiate rules forbid it to play
any more than 26 games in a year, and it's already booked up.
This is a smokescreen, a) because league rules aren't that tight
(witness the University of Manitoba), b) it would be easy enough
to make room by cancelling a game, and c) a Birds-Bakers game
could easily be played arcer UBC's schedule expires in March.
Then, of course, if this matter was somehow bypassed, the gym-
types would use their old stand-by excuse: exams are just a
month away!
The Bakers, like UBC, believe there's been enough fuss
kicked up already about the fact that some students left the
Thunderbirds this yeair. If UBC won, it would reflect unfairly
on these students. "We didn't need them anyway," some would
say. If Bakers won, it would rekindle the flames of anger which
accompanied the earlier incident.
But don't the Dodgers hate the Yankees? Doesn't McGill
hate Toronto? Don't all those teams have tremendous spirit amd
spectator support?
Sure, conclusions would be drawn. But conclusions, gentlemen, are often much safer than rash assumptions, and such assumptions have been made and will continue to be made. They
reflect just as badly as any Birds-Baker game would on the
respective parties.
Already this season, one Birds-Bakers match has been
avoided. Last December, the top city team was supposed to be
invited to the Totem Tournament. Bakers were the top city
team. Alberni Athletics, a has-been team now, got the nod. The
city league was snubbed.
Last month, both Birds and Bakers played the Harlem
Globetrotters' touring partners, the Honolulu Surfriders, on successive nights. Birds won, Baikers lost. Both games were close.
Conclusions were drawn and assumptions made by a good many
people. Were they made fairly?
Some other considerations for the Thunderbirds and the
Bakers: If you were so afraid of repercussions and bad feelings, why did you allow the "incident" to occur in the first
place?
You groan about your paltry budget every year, yet spend
thousands of dollars travelling to the prairies, and hundreds
more bringing in teams like Alaska and Peru—teams below
the Bakers' standard—when for bus fare, you can get the top
teaim in Canada?
You sigh when poor crowds turn up at your games; when
the press gives you poor publicity when you are playing mediocre opponents, yet you purposely avoid something that both the
press and the fans are clamoring for.
We realize such a game requires a big decision on all sides.
We realize some extremely touchy decisions have already been
made. Feelings have been hurt. But unless some big decisions
like this are made, basketball in these parts is going to starve on
the vine, despite these glorious roots which are displayed so spectacularly in the provincial high school basketball tournament.
Basketteill is a great sport, and Vancouver's most popular
winter activity, especially with the younger set. Yet unless it is
built into a spectacle like that high school tournament, it's going to limp along until it dies.
The^day of the jammed gym has already passed. When
Vancouver's best junior team has to beg to enter the B.C. finals;
when less than 200 fans watch the best college and senior A
teams in Canada perform, it's not good. When no one wants to do
anything about it, it's even worse.
