MONSTER SNOWBANKS (above right) greeted students
parking in campus' snowed-in lots Monday morning. Car
pools are for pushing discovers one student above.
300 empty beds
due to holdups
Three hundred rooms in UBC residences are vacant
because of the delay in the completion of the new Totem
Park residences, housing head John Haar said Monday.
"All our beds were booked
weeks before the academic
year began in September,"
Haar said.
Due to the contractor's inability to complete half of the
Totem Park residences until
October, students had to be
placed in temporary off-campus residences.
"Many of the students booked for Totem have decided to
stay in their temporary off-
campus residences," he  said.
Haar said the vacancies were
evenly distributed among
campus dorms because other
students   have   moved   from
other residences  into Totem.
Residents of Totem Park
have been refunded from $1.25
to $25 for inconveniencies they
suffered due to delayed opening of the new residences.
He explained Housing used
a formula based on when the
student moved in and which
services he lacked to determine
the amount of the rebate.
Residents in the new buildings were bothered by lack of
laundry facilities, lack of certain restroom facilities, and
the inconvience of workmen
working, Haar said.

Students battle
blizzard and win
UBC students battled the snow Monday, and won.
A snowstorm that paralyzed traffic in Vancouver made
hundreds of students late for classes but there were no
traffic jams on campus.
Only a few students got stuck
in slippery parking lots just
cleared of two weeks accumulation of snow.
Latest report from campus
traffic officials said no cars
had been ticketed and none
towed away.
Hard pressed traffic officials
report  co-operation from  stu
dents has been excellent. They
asked for more of the same.
Although the condition of
the parking lots is good, only
one-half the usual space has
been cleared. Chains and snow-
tires are still mandatory. The
traffic office emphasized cars
must be kept off campus if they
are not properly equipped.
Traffic   officials   warn   un-
Restrictions continue
equipped cars in trouble on
approach roads to UBC are
liable to be impounded and
their drivers charged by the
RCMP with obstructing traffic.
Similar vehicles in difficulty
on the campus are liable to a
towing charge of $5 and a $5
fine for obstructing traffic under UBC Traffic Regulations.
Tom Hughes, Buildings and
Grounds Superintendent says
the parking lots are now all
cleared and no buildings have
collapsed from the weight of
the snow.
Emergency bus service on
campus has been good with
buses running about every two

breakdowns due to the snow.
UBC cafeterias reported increased demands. Lounge
areas especially in Brock were
more crowded than usual with
students seeking relief from
the cool air.
A gigantic snowball fight
erupted near the end of the
noon-hour lunch break. More
than 100 students were engaged in the brief free-for-all.
Several snow statues were
erected near the scene of the
fight but were pushed over by
zealous snowballers.
. . . 'wizard' dies
New Year
was ending
for Johnny
A New Year* began for most
people last Friday but it ended
for Johnny Owen, UBC's "wizard with the tape".
John Owen, athletic trainer
and custodian to thousands of
UBC athletes for 28 years, died
on the first day of the New
Year at the age of 63.
Johnny, as he was called by
all who knew him, was very
much part of the campus. He
was always Johnny-on-the-spot
— ready, willing and able to
help those in distress. He was
known by his hundreds of

Big health centre
gets shot in arm
Grants covering up to 50 per cent of the costs of the first
stage development of the P. A. Woodward Health Sciences
; Centre have been announced by the Provincial Government.
UBC Dean of Medicine, John
F. McCreary, commenting on
the provincial order-in-council
that made the grants possible,
said great credit should go to
the provincial government for
the contribution to the $20 million P. A. Woodward Health
Sciences Centre.
"I am thoroughly convinced
that the provision of these facilities will put British Columbia and UBC into the forefront
of the education of health personnel in Canada."
P. A. Woodward last spring
donated $3.5 million toward
the centre which, with interest,
will amount to $4 million.
Another $4 million has been
pledged by the federal government and one-half million by
other sources.
Dr. McCreary also lauded
Woodward's generosity.

It will be the first university-
operated campus teaching hospital among Canada's 12 medical schools, and the first uni

and other medical disciplines
will be trained in the same
classes and share the same living, eating and recreation
Difficult medical cases will
be sent to the centre, where
they will receive the highest
level of diagnosis and care.
It is the first hospital in Canada where provincial and
federal construction grants will
bear the cost of teaching and
research facilities by providing
four or five times the building grants per bed available to
general treatment hospitals.

Cast: One large chorus of
dancers, dressed in late 17th
century costume. One sincere,
crew-cut, bow-tied announcer,
much like Garry Moore, called Mr. Sincerity by his friends.
Music: Viennese Waltz,
dancing the minuet, and similar.
Mr. Sincerity: "Yes, remember that wonderful year. That
year we all remember and
love, that year always remaining dear to our hearts. A year
before the marvel of TV,
before the birth of the many
lovely children in our audience.

illuminating events, and the
variety shows of the year

Mr. S: That was the year the
French variety shows swept
the world. The greatest of
these was the revolution, with
a cast of thousands. This great
show created the dance of the
guillotine, which all the
people in all the towns were
doing in their quaint town

When all the dancers are
decapitated, jolly Mr. Sincerity minces onto the stage,
drawing the curtain behind
him. He is accompanied by a
tall, horsefaced man, wearing
powdered wig and kilts. Two
stage hands bring a harpsichord, a bagpipe, and an ugly
old fat lady.)
Mr. S: "Yes, the year of
George III in England, John
Quincy Adams in the US, and
the assassination of Gustavus
III of Sweden. Slavery was
abolished in St. Dominigo,
and the wrold mourned Mozart's death. The singing rage
was a young Scot named

we loved so well."

Chubby, genial Hume

Donald Cameron Hume, 22-
year-old Ubyssey Art Director,
has confirmed what he's been
saying since 1962.
He claims he's great. In 1962
he won the Montreal Star photo
award for taking the best pictures in college journalism.
He won again this year.
One of the photos which won
the competition was taken by
photographer John Tyrell.
Hume asked all the leaders at
the annual leadership conference to pose for a group shot.
He then signalled Steve
Whitelaw and Art Stevenson
to dump water from a perch.

The conference also examined the internal structure of
CUP and goals of the press association.
Lord Thomson, multi-millionaire newspaper magnate, and
R. J. Doyle, managing editor
of the Toronto Globe and Mail,
(see page 5) were guest speakers at the conference.
A panel discussion, featuring
former Canadian Union of Students president Stu Goodings,

Editors were unable to draw
up a set of criteria for student
council — university paper relationships. The matter was
turned over a committee for
further study.
The maximum fee for membership in CUP was raised from
$450 to $500 per year.
The Ubyssey, Alberta's Gateway, The McGill Daily, Toronto's Varsity and the Manitoban
are affected.
Other member papers pay on
a sliding scale according to university enrolment.
The conference also supported proposals to assist developing newspapers from new universities.
The Ubyssey was mandated
to assist any paper which
comes from Simon Fraser Academy if the paper desires help.
Two new members were admitted, The Mount Royal Reflector, and the Carillon.

Fame and glory
The winning football coach turns to his screaming
admirers and says: "The boys dun it; they wuz the
greatest bunch I ever coached."
We feel a little like that coach.
The boys and girls who made The Ubyssey tie a
Canadian record by winning the Southam trophy four
times in a row are a pretty fair team.
They are guys like Don Hume. He's won the award for
being the best college photographer for the last two out
of three years.
And they are gals like Sheri and Sharon, who type
and do menial chores and never see their names in print.
Ubyssers work 30 to 40 hours a week and still manage
to pass. Some even win scholarships.
Each press day it takes The Ubyssey 12 hours to
come out. Editors and proof readers work until after midnight. Sometimes they wonder if it's worth   it all.
Right now they know. Three managing editors from
three Canadian dailies think these people are doing the
best job in Canada.
So we'll take your praise for the next few days and
place it in our "fame and glory" file. (Sorry, no adverse
criticism will be accepted.)
We're saving it for the days when everything goes
wrong—the copy is late, the gremlins louse up our paper
and the world cries "misquote."
Here are the people who make The Ubyssey Canada's
best damn college paper. Extra copies of names listed
will be supplied on request.

Lost romance
Dylan sings a mean song
NEW HAVEN — Standing
at the microphone, he looks
like a kid off the street who
got lost and stumbled onto the
stage by mistake.
He plays the guitar no better than the average amateur,
he blows clumsily through a
mouth organ, he cannot sing
a note.
But Bob Dylan is the hottest
thing in folk-singing today,
and after hearing his concert
here I can see why.
It was not so much a singing concert he gave as it was
a poetry reading accompanied
by the guitar and harmonica.
The poetry is a lost romantic appeal for a decent world
and a condemnation of the
dirt, hypocrisy and injustice of
the one we live in.
• •    •
The blue - denim - clad rebel
protests war, hatred and discrimination with phrases like
"I saw a black branch with
blood dripping from it, I walked down a road paved with
diamonds but there was nobody on it."
He sings wry comic ballads
like the one about the paranoid John Bircher who investigated his back yards, under
his floor and the inside of his
toilet bowl looking for Communists, but he did not find
any, so he investigated himself.
• •    •
All this comes in a nasal
tuneless voice and you strain
to catch the words. There's
none of the smooth melody of
Peter, Paul and Mary or the
Chad Mitchell Trio; none of
the sophisticated patter of the
Limelighters, no songs you can
go home whistling to yourself
as you can with Belafonte.
Dylan just stands there, and
doesn't even tell you the name
of the song.
High priest of the folkniks,
he appeals to the comfortable
students with their dates from
Vassar, Smith and Wellesley
who want to be assured they
really are liberals, they really
believe in brotherhood, and
that they too want to protest.
And, for the grand finale
Dylan joke, it is they and
their thoughts he is protesting.
CBC forever
Editor, The Ubyssey:
As a concerned student, I
am crawling out of my "apathy chamber" to help circulate a petition in support of
the Canadian Broadcasting
Company. We are aiming at
some 3,000 signatures—primarily from Canada's universities—on our petition which
"We, the undersigned, wish
to acknowledge our gratitude
to the Canadian Broadcasting Company for broadcasting such vital programs as
Quest, Festival, and This
Hour Has Seven Days, despite
the tremendous pressure being exerted to keep Canadian
TV and radio undemanding,
uncontroversial and superficial.
Today, more than ever before, the most important problems facing the nation must
be met by serious examination and enquiry. The basic
issues and controversies of
our times must not be smothered out of our only public
forum just because such discussion is offensive to sections of the public or politicians attempting to be guardians of the public mind.
"We, the undersigned, support the Fowler Commission's
recommendation that a secure
financial basis be given
through  a  five - year  govern
ment contract. It is a national
scandal that political coercion through manipulation of
yearly doles has crippled CBC
"The community exists in
communication. We, the
undersigned, realize the importance of maintaining the
complete integrity of the public function of our primary
national communication media. We want to see CBC's
vitality as a Canadian expression increasing, not decreasing, in the coming years."

friends as the guy with the unchanging  personality.  He was
liked by everyone.
Johnny referred to his athletes as "my boys" and treated
them like a father. He shared
their glory, suffered in defeat,
never accepted praise for himself but gave it all to the players.
As a star amateur hockey
player with the Vancouver
Towers, Johnny competed for
the Allan Cup back in 192t5.
A serious injury ten years
later brought his competitive
career to an end.
The following year he came
to UBC where he coached the
hockey team for two years.
When Johnny took over the job
of trainer he divided his time
between football, basketball,
baseball and hockey.
If he couldn't compete, he
wanted to be there — to watch
others do it. He refereed senior
games, and became a goal judge
at Vancouver Canucks and
senior lacrosse games.
He became known as "the
wizard with the tape". He could
do almost anything and got to
know every players' want and
needs. He went as far as learning what brand of chewing gum
each player liked and at what
time to give it out.
Johnny was the trainer for
the Olympic Ice Hockey team
which competed for the World
Hockey championships in Innsbruck, Austria last year.
Ken Broderick, goaltender
for the Olympic team and presently attending UBC, said:
"Words can't describe how
much help he was to us; he was
one hell of a guy."
Football coach Frank Gnup
said: He knew that he should
have taken it easy, but try and
tell him that."
Athletic Director Bus Phillips said: "Losing Johnny is a
terrific blow to UBC athletes
and athletic; it will be hard
to believe that he is gone."
Johnny was always smiling
and he lived to be with his
The atmosphere in the athletic department now, according to many officials, will
never be the same. Johnny

and competitiveness of UBC
Johnny was laid to rest yesterday afternoon but to hundreds his memory will live on.
Journalists don't talk to public
The following is taken
from a speech given by R.
J. Doyle, editor of the Toronto Globe and Mail at a
recnt conference of the Canadian University press.
Journalism in Canada has
suffered too long because
those involved in its various
parts have spent so much time
talking to themselves and so
little talking to each other.
What is worse is that all of us
have spent so little time talking to those hapless folks who,
in spite of all our sins of omission and commission, continue
to read the newspapers we

The problem of getting to
know our readers is only one
of the troubles we have in
common. In fact, most of our
difficulties are mutual. If
there is such a thing as good
advice for your group, it is
probably good for mine.
Only time separates the student and the professional journalist. No matter how loftly
the ambitions, no matter how
strong the determination of
this assembled group may be,
the rude fact remains that
some of you — even many of

Nineteen-sixty-f our was the
year in which Canadian bad
manners became something
of an international scandal.
Involved were the legitimate political and economic
aspirations of the province of
Quebec; the opportunism of
the revolutionary—or lunatic
fringe — of our French Canadian population; the irresponsibility of a number of Canadian newspapermen; and
the Queen  of Canada.
• *    •
"I have said ten times," said
Mr. Levesque, "that I find the
visit of the Queen to Quebec
is not opportune and I still
believe it. There are 1000
journalists who are doing all
they can to create an incident
around this statement. This
is not journalism, it is yellow
journalism, the worst that I
know of."
If there were those who
hoped for incidents, they
must have been well satisfied. On that sad Saturday in
October,   the   Quebec   police
force panicked and night
sticks were swung without
much regard for whose head
they connected with.
The inquiry that followed
was not slow and painstaking
like the Warren probe — it
was swift and secret.
• •    •
The results were just a bit
dismaying. Said Quebec Solicitor General, Mr. Claude
Wagner: "A small core of
young journalists, partisans
and sympathizers with separatist theories — devoted
themselves not only to exaggerating but also to provoking certain situations to
which the press in general
gave a good deal of publicity."
Police were given a fairly
clean bill of health, while
Mr. Wagner joined Premier
Jean Lesage in lambasting
what they both regarded—as
did Mr. Levesque — the exponents of yellow journalism.
Naturally, the press turned
on the politicians. But the
only positive thing that was
done was authored by the
management of two Quebec
newspapers, Le Soleil and

They will continue to look
to the university press for recruits — but unless the university press itself changes,
they will look with increasing scepticism. For our university newspapers are too
often campus-orientated miniatures of the average Canadian daily.
Imitation is flattery. It can
also be a substitute for lack
of originality, lack of a sense
of adventure, lack of a willingness to experiment. Do
you have to be as stodgy as
we are?
We should be able to look
to the university press just
occasionally for the outrageous. And by outrageous, I do
not mean a faculty-splitting
editorial damning Remembrance Day or advocating
free love.

The newspapers published
on Canadian campuses today
are probably better written
and better edited than any
of the papers that have gone
before them. I have talked to
judges of your various national competitions and they
are impressed by your
"quality", and quality is a
word that none of us uses
• •    •
But even the most conservative of your judges is perplexed at your unwillingness
to — just occasionally —kick
over the traces.
Don't be afraid to experiment. The newspapers of tomorrow will have greater
need of the innovators than
of the carbon copy boys, even
if the carbon copies are of the
best in the business today.
Scooters in out of cold
but heat is on owners
Students' motorcycles and scooters will no longer be out
in the cold, but owners will have to pay for their protection.
Due to an increase in the number of scooters, covered
parking areas provided on campus have been extended.
Motorcycles and scooters cannont be parked on campus
outside buildings.
The rates will be $1.25 for students, and $2.50 for faculty
and staff for the remainder of the academic year. This is
half the amount for cars.
The university Board of Governors made the ruling
setting fees on scooters at the end of the last term.

TORONTO (CUP) — Organizers of the Imperial Pub-

The machine will contain the

Panel to discuss
academic report
The first in a series of discussions on the Macdonald report on academic goals will be held in Brock Thursday.
A panel made up of profes
sor of anthropology and member of the president's committee on academic goals, Dr.
Cyril Belshaw; Neville Scarfe,
UBC dean of education; Dr. C.
A. McDowell, head of the
chemistry department; and Dr.
Nathan Divinsky, professor of
mathematics, will discuss the
aims and structure of a university.
Recommendations of the report, released last fall, included
abolition of Christmas exams,
increased facilities for graduate studies, closer contact
between professors and students, and cutting back on the
number of graduate student instructors.
This is the first in a series
of four panel discussions on
the report organized by a student committee on academic
goals. The discussions are designed to stimulate more student interest in the report.
Students are invited to take
part in a question and answer
period which will follow the
discussion at 1 p.m. Thursday
in Brock.

Fellowship financial support.
• Most of those holding National or Provincial awards
have also been granted supplementary University Scholarships or Assistantships.
• All are enjoying the many benefits of close individual
guidance and regular personal consultation with their
faculty supervisors, a situation made possible by a 1:2
Instructor-Student ratio.
• Many are participating in exciting and challenging new
programs of interdisciplinary research in fields such as
Chemical Physics, as well as in Biochemistry, Biophysics
and Molecular Biology.
• All have the rare opportunity of extending their cultural and intellectual boundaries as members of a graduate student body that is half Canadian and half from
foreign countries.
• Science and Engineering students have available to them
the most advanced research facilities, such as the Nuclear Reactor.
• Most are gaining university teaching experience by participating in an Assistantship proram.

50 non-credit courses,
designed to extend the universities resources to the community, will carry on the
recently expanded program.
Six new programs are being
initiated  this year:
• Geography Behind the
News Headlines. The role and
influence of geography on
Cuba, Viet Nam, China and
East Africa.
• The ideas and insights of
Dr. Marshall McLuhan into the
cultural implications of communications will be reviewed
in a 5-session series, Extensions of Man.
• Man and Science: Human
Destiny in an Accelerating
Universe. To probe the implications of recent scientific
theories and findings in relation to man's moral, philosophical and theological concepts.

Opponents on campus say
students don't entertain in their
bedrooms at home so they
shouldn't be allowed to at university.
But the editorial countered
that the university doesn't provide a living room adjacent to
the bedroom for such entertaining.
"The barbarities of separating the sexes are far greater
than those of integrating
them," the editorial said.
"Anyone who has been under
a military form of life, or in a
residence hall, knows the crude
language that is invited by this
unnatural situation.
"Providing for the realization
that the opposite sex is a form
of human life, can have ideas,

Along   with   the   leaves,

A third day may be added

although a special Senate committee has been established to
seek methods of shortening the
congregation ceremony.
If no solution can be found,
the third day will be added.
The UBC Senate will continue to approve, in the fall,
degrees completed over the
summer. However the formal
ceremony will be postponed
until spring.
Students such as teachers,
doctors, and engineers, requiring the degrees for professional
reasons will not be affected by
the change. The University will

UBC coeds now have less
than two male students each to
fight over, according to a Student Survey Office report.
The report says 34.1 percent
of this year's students are female compared to 29.1 percent
in 1963-64.
The report was compiled
from a questionnaire completed
by students during registration
in September.
It includes sections on educational objectives and financial means.
Teaching still remains the
most popular objective with
27.5 percent of students aiming
at this field.
Social work, Physical Education and Nursing are more
popular this year, while medicine, engineering and dentistry
are down.
Director of Student Services
A. F. Shirran said this may be
due to the increase in the female campus population.
The report also showed that
1700 men and 590 women on
campus are married (not necessarily to each other).
They have more than 1,500
children between them.
