Engineer's riots and pantie raids, to the contrary the
ivory towered halls of ivy academic life is not dead.
UBC's Admlnstration Office received a missive from
one of Vancouver's more select schools for yourig ladies
which has been turning out candidates for the Junior
League for many years.
"Please discontinue sending Miss 's mail to this
address," it said. "She has been dead for seven years."

The greatest sex re-habilitation since our gal (?) Chris

No Longer
University Clubs' Committee
is the new title for the Literary
and Scientific Executive.
The title was changed in order
to make the name more definitive of the Executive's work.
Literary magazines from other
universities were being sent to
the LSE, often though of as
the "ivory tower" organization.
At the meeting Wednesday,
LSE treasurer, Peter Henslowe,
reminded all clubs that their
last year's budget would not
necessarily determine next year's
budget. The size of budget
would depend on need—not on
the amount of bashes. A motion
was defeated to hold a club day
permanently in the armouries.
The LSE (now UCC) is made
up of one representative from
each of the fifty clubs on the
campus which are not athletic
and do not come under the Engineering Undergraduate Society.
THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT is reknowned for its offbeat plays but this time the hero kills hig father and   .
marries his mother. If the idea intrigues you go see Frank
Joy and Phoebe Smith explain all this Friday and Saturday nights in the auditorimu. (see story on page three).

Rowers May Tour
Britain—But Need Cash
UBC's champion rowing team that astounded the country
and cleaned the British at the BEG. may get a crack at the
——— * Henley Cup.
Students however will be
asked for more than just a warm
spot in their hearts. AMS
treasurer Ron Bray announced
Wednesday that he will ask for
a $2,000 allocation from the
next general meeting.
"After their performance at
the BEG,' Bray said, "I think
it isn't too much to ask for a
$ 2000 vote of confidence. After
all they might beat the Russians
this time."
Also aiding in the fund raising effort will be the Vancouver
Rowing Club and the Association of Canadian Oarsmen. The
rowing club is beginning its
drive for funds in a modest way
by holding a small sioree at its
premises in Stanley Park Saturday next.
But the Henley trophy, the
Koh-i-noor diamond of the
sculling and punt set is available for capture by the UBC
squad only if the good burghers
of Vancouver and district cough
up $20,000 give or take a few
cents lo pay for the excursion.
Men's Athletic Directorate
secretary Bob Hutchinson announced Wednesday that the
AT AD was all for the idea and
would spearhead a committee to
raise the necessary shekels.
''If the rowers go," he said,
"they'll be going as a UBC team,
and while the university hasn't
the necessary cash to finance the
whole trip we feel we should
show more than just approbation
for  the  idea."

To   Suffer
Engineers concerned with last
week's fracas will hear the "damage" tonight when the Investigations Committee issues its final report.
The Investigating Committee
headed by Jim Killeen, holds
its final meeting tonight at
which time estimates of damage
costs resulting from the Gym
riot and raids on the 'Ubyssey'
office are scheduled to be presented.
Complaints have already been
lodged by Bob Brady, Men's
Athletic Director, against the
Engineering Undergraduate Society and two un-named EUS
members who were identified
taking part in the attempt to
capture Mardi Gras King, Stu
Midill, at Friday night's basketball  game.
Recommendations of the Investigation Committee will be
| submitted to the Student Court
■ which has the only authority
! to levy fines on the undergraduate  society.
The Court will in turn submit
its recommendations to Faculty
Council for consideration in any
forthcoming disciplinary action.
Dr. McKenzie has received a
detailed report on the situation
from R. R. Osborne, Director of
UBC's School of Physical Education. Thc report will be laid

"My mail was reduced by
fifty to sixty letters a day as
soon as that cock-eyed law was
dropped," said provincial Health
Minister Eric Martin yesterday,
commenting on the change from
compulsory hospital insurance
premiums to the present scheme
of hospital insurance.
Speaking on B.C. Hospital Insurance before Social Credit
Club sponsored noon-hour meeting in Physics 202, the Honorable Eric Martin declared that
British Columbia now has a hospital insurance scheme that has
the backing of the people ol
And he contended that the
scheme is working to everybody's satisfaction, giving the
maximum of security while main
taining the maximum of individual freedom.
"Even venereal disease has
been eliminated in spite of individual misbehaviour," Mr.
Martin mentioned.
Replying to a question from
the audience, Mr. Martin denied
that Social Credit had campaigned on the issue of voluntary
payments of hospital insurance
"What we did," he said, "was
to declare that we were prepared to go that far if no better
solution could be found. We
have found a better solution."
The Minister also touched on
Social Credit philosophy, saying
that all policies were derived
from that basic philosophy,
which is a way of life in itself,
and requires a great deal of
Mr. Martin came oiyt forcibly
against those who expect special
privileges from the Government.
"We will not tolerate lobbies
or pressure groups," he said,
adding that "the will of the
people and not special groups
should govern our  actions."

ence Committee will hold a
meeting in the Board Room on
Friday noon.
Students interviewed in a Ubyssey poll Wednesday seemed to favour UBC's entrance into a Western Canadian Athletic
hook-up—even if it cost them six dollars.
A referendum will be present-* ■
ed to the students in February
asking if they would favour such
a scheme.
The purpose of the referendum, stressed MAD president
Bob Brady, was to "see if UBC
will enter such a league. The
referendum is not only a money
bylaw; the results will merely
show whether or not to attempt
such a scheme."
The Western Intercollegiate
Athletic League would connect
UBC and Universities of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan
in an all-sports union.
It would necessitate withdrawal from the Evergreen Conference, of which UBC is the only
Canadian member.
Such a scheme would also
necessitate a fee increase of six
dollars, which would be effected by making purchase of the
present Athletic Privilege Cards
("A-Cards") compulsory to all
Ed Jakeman, Civil IV: "I've
always wanted ot see UBC play
in a Canadian league. The fee
increase seems to be Justified if
the students want to see UBC
make a showing in football."
Don Murray, Civil IV: I'm in
favour, but only if UBC will
benefit by playing in a league
that is more of its calibre.
George Woolett, Arts II: "I
don't think I'd like to see such
a set-up at UBC. It's a well-
known fact that Canadian teams
aren't up to American standards,
and I can't see how UBC could
improve its brand of football if
it plays poorer teams than it
is now playing."
Ted Saunders, Artsl: "I'd be
willing to pay the six dollars if
it would help athletics at UBC.
Gerry O'Flanagan, ArtsII: "I
think it would be the greatest
thing that's ever happened to
athletics at UBC. For one thing,
it would create Canadian interregional rivalry, right now we're
playing American colleges no-
one's ever heard of.

Divorce Law To Be Hit
For the fourth straight

the coveted McGoun cup, emblematic of debating supremacy in Western Canada, as
UBC and University of Alberta students clash Friday
night in a blaze of rhetoric
and verbiage.
The topic, "Resolved that

Liberalized to the Level of
British Divorce Laws," will be
upheld by John Coates, Law
III, and Derek Fraser, Arts I.
The negative side will be
presented by Alberta's John
Brocco and Archie Ryson.

Time Will Tell
Objections by the presidents of the Fort and Acadia
Camp councils to the "do nothing" attitude of Student Council may not be justified.
Time will tell. Here's why:
The inside word around the university is that a sizeable capital grant will be given UBC when the provincial
budget is handed down. The story is that the university has
actually been promised such a grant by the provincial cabinet.
Student Council's present inactivity is no doubt based
oil this expectation. If a grant is made, provision would likely
b* included for student residences, agitation and a pressure
campaign for housing would then be wasted effort for
Student Council.
• - Council has not been entirely inactive. It attempted to
persuade the Housing Administration to reduce a number
of free-loading professors and other non-students now living
ih Acadia camp. With such actions the administration would
be holding up its own end in the solving of UBC's housing
problems. But the council pleadings were turned down cold.
However, if the budget contained no capital grant for
V8C, if Student Council has complacently trusted to mere
rumour, then the finger of accusation could be pointed at
it with justification.
In the face of present conjecture, it might be well for
Student Council to announce just what its present policy is
and why.
Petitioner   Replies
As the originator of tho petition requesting that the
pool issue go to a general meeting of the AMS, rather than
be decided by referendum, I feel bound to reply to the statements made by the student council president which were reported in your issue of January 18.
I feel sure that the students wish to resolve this issue
in a manner which will be most advantageous to the university, and I number myself among them. The question of
roofing the Empire pool or building a smaller one has been
considered since the beginning of the unversity year, and a
number of reports have appeared in The Ubyssey concerning it. *
On the face of it, suggestions that a smaller pool should
be built seem ridiculous, however, it is evident that Student
Council and a number of university officials are wholeheartedly in favor of the idea.
In the months in which this question has been discussed, Student Council has made no effort to lay the issue;
the advantages and disadvantages of either suggestion, clearly
before the student body.
That the president of Student Council should be prepared to make a statement, personal or otherwise, to the
effect that a referendum should be placed before thc student
body which would preclude any opportunity for the students
to vote for roofing the Empire Pool seem to me to be ominous in the extreme.
Under the circumstances I placed a petition before the
Student Council in order to ensure that the facts would be
adequately presented to the interested members of the student body at a general meeting, and to prevent the type
of referendum taking place which the Student Council president seems to feel would be adequate

Not   Convinced
There is no doubt in our minds as to whether the UBC
engineers were in any way whatsoever involved in last Friday's fracas in the War Memorial gym.
It has been brought to our attention that the sole means
of identifying the culprits was their brilliant red sweaters.
This is circumstantial evidence. And since the sulprits
have been described in downtown papers as "callow youths,"
we suggest that authorities investigate some of the local high
schools. Furthermore we have been reliably informed that
members of the Nanairno Soccer team also wear red sweaters.
It any ut our boys were involved, we of EUS would certainly have been informed. An so would the rest of the world.

My fees are paid for me this
season, and I think I'm thc
worse for it. I'm getting soft.
I yearn for the good old
days when being a student
was a challenge. With the fee-
collector after you, student
life was worthwhile*.
Certainly, there is no challenge in an arts course. Scmi-
annu~. duels over fee payments
toughen the fibre of artsmen
/ar more than the lazy, intermittent struggle for a degree.
Trying to outwit the accountant makes you rough,
tough and ready for life. Everyone in the administration building is known for his sadistic
craftiness, but the accountant
enjoys the most formidable
reputation of all—greater than
that of any foreclosing banker
or psychopathic traffic cop.
His pet amusement is said
to be pulling the legs off broken bursary students.
And I loved his simple cruelty at first sight. Here is a
worthy opponent, I thought,
and proceeded to enjoy the
stimulation he offered over the
next two winter and summer
We took to haggling over my
late payments like two peddlers in a Middle Eastern market place. I came to look for- .

NFCUS Must Unite
The Kditor, Ubyssey;
Students need help.
NFCtfS tries lo get thai
NFCUS fails.
Obviously if a NFCUS campaign Is to succeed it must
have thc united support of the
student body. Religious and
political differences should be
momentarily forgotten. Quarrelling over who docs most
for NFCUS (.while NFCUS itself does nothing) is hindering
not helping the scholarship
For example Archie McGugan's statement "thc Communists always lead" etc., etc.,
may be good for a belly laugh
but does not solve any student problems.
Only if students unite, .not
as Communists, Liberals, and
Conservatives, but simply as
university students can we
hope to get results.
Al Forrest.
In all modestly, I believe I
measured up. The accountant
recognized me for a poor credit risk straight off, and I'm
sure he approached me with a
light of joyful battle in his
eyes. Naturally he knew that
freshmen were unjaded, their
resistance vigorous instead of

mocking eyes, then gave him a

But he was ready for this.
His eyebrows rose knowingly. This, I knew, was to suggest my father rnuet be spending his unemployment checks
on women and liquor. I grinned
my respect for his prowess.
Then he attempted to crack
my cockiness with the query:
"Can you do it yourself?"
"I see," he said. I watched
him closely, but he didn't quiver. My eyes shone with admiration.
And I was sure I could catch
the glimmer of a comradely
smile in his own eyes. We really hit it off.
Life seems pointless, now.
Mind you, I've tried substitutes
—like piling up library fees
and ignoring parking tickets.
But it's small stuff, and humdrum, lt offers little of the fine
training for life in our big,
commercial world that I had
enjoyed before.

How am I going to live comfortably in genteel poverty—

Hoot Pool
Editor, The Ubyssey;
With reference to the controversy of swimming pools.
Why don't we just put in a
heating plant and heat up the
water during the winter?
I have been swimming at
the Upper Hot Springs pool in
Banff when the thermometer
read ten below.
Anyway if the gym can be
used as a criterion, it would
be no warmer with or without a roof. I need not make
, any suggestions as to how the
extra money could' be very
beneficially used.

Use Energies
Editor, The  Ubyssey;
Since my arrival on this
campus I have not seen as
much group enthusiasm as
was exhibited by the engineers during their campaigns of
the past week. It is indeed a
shame that so much organization and energy had to be
wasted on the undertaking of
such Questionable practicies as
■abductions, burnings, property
damage and the instigation of
mob violence. Nevertheless the
redshirts are to be praised for
their terrific spirit, something
unfortunately lacking in most
campus factions.
It is to be noted that if the
students of this university put
as much energy into the support of athletics as the engineers put into the manufacture of stink bombs and soap
resistant paint, then UBC,
might well have a far better
athletic record than it has now.
How can students expect a
team to do its best when it
doesn't even have the recognition or the moral support of a
should know
this man—
His name is
and he may hold the key
to your
majority of the student body.
Similarly, how can the students hope for bigger and better extracurricular activities
when so many of thc participants don't give a damn what
goes on out here anyway?
An outsider may well wonder what js going on when the
only sign of great enthusiasm
inside   fjie   university   results
in  unfavorable  piibllcity  outside the university. The candid
observer    might    well     ask,
"Why don't the engineers put
their organization to better use
and get rid of that latent hostility ycjiing at fooball games instead of burning Ubysseys?"
John S. Butterficld,
Arts I.
Also a joke . . .Prof: Who was
that engineer I saw you with
last night?
Artsman! That was no engineer, that was my wife.
Editor, The Ubyssey;
I have an idea about raising
some money for Brock Hall. It
would require some willing
young co-eds. The idea is not
quite as bad as I think you
are' thinking. It is to hold a
slave auction with all the trimmings.
Of course you could only
sell the girls for an afternoon
and. for the sake of the name
of UBC. have It stipulated that
the staves were only to carry
books and to open doors, etc.
It cbuld also be stipulated that
the girls would have to be returned at a certain time to
the slave block. They would
have to be in good shape, no
broken merchandise returned
A few boys could also be
auctionqd off for thc sake of
the girls. A minimum price
could be set. If this were too
high, then it might be suggested that two or three men go together to purchase one of the
young ladies. The only danger,
aside from what you are thinking, is that a certain faculty
might try to corner the market.
I rather doubt it though. Past
events this year have shown
they lack the spirit to even
think about such things.
The reason this was written
to you is that I do not know
anyone else who would not in-
'stantly reject the idea. At least
you are depraved enough to
read about it.
For the same reason you will
not find this note signed. I
have a certain reputation to
uphold and I would rather you
didn't print this, but just pass
the idea along for what it
Thank you.

To Remain
On Campus
UBC's Teacher training school
will stay on the campus, President N. A. M. MacKenzie said
Dr. Mackenzie's statement
came as a result of a suggestion
Ly provincial Education Minister
Ray Williston that the school
should come under the direct
control of the provincial government which at present has no
say in the curriculum or management of the school.
In a statement to the Ubyssey
Dr. MacKenzie said "The teachers' training course has always
been under government control,
since it is the government that
issues the licences. We don't
control the practice of teaching
any more than the practice of
law, medicine or engineering."
In reference to Williston's dissatisfaction with the enrollment
in teachers' training, he said,
'This lower number is due to
the smaller birth rate during
the depression years. The same
situation prevails in other professions."
He stated that the enrollment
in the normal schools represents
a younger age group, from the
post-depression years, which is
naturally larger in numbers.

(ACP)-A riot was staged by
coeds at Oregon State College
when they were forbidden to
sunbathe on their dormitory
Campus police were called in
to quiet down the girls who
painted the glass transoms above
their doors black, adding bars
and the words "Stalag 17."
When school officials said the
ruling was made because the
roof was unsafe, one coed complained: "My mother sunbathed
on the same spot 20 years ago
and didn't fall off."
THE STUDENTS ABOVE are members of the Madrigal Society, a new organization dedicated to the proposition that too little is hea rd these days of early music. Formed last term
by Music MajorHarry Locke, the choral group has attracted a hard core of enthusiastic
participants. The music is sung just as it was hundreds of years ago. Early composers such
as Praetorius, Palestrina and Purcell are represented. The choir will make its debut today
at noon in Physics 200. Admission free. —Brian Thomas Photo

strange and weird oracle tells
the fate of King Oedipus in
Jean Cocteau's modern version
of the legend "The Infernal Machine."
Annual presentation of the
UBC English Department, the
play, under director Joy Coghill,
will take the form of a three dimensional production complete
with stereophonic sound.
Filmed by the Campus Film
Society, projections in a 3D effect were rushed to the campus
from Toronto to acheive depth
and complete thc impact of the
four-act production.
A highly experimental presentation, the play effectively
and symbolically relates the
story of Oedipus, played by
Frank Joy, and his wife and
mother  Jocastra,   portrayed   by
guest artist Phoebe Smith. Fear
of patricide and incest drives
Oedipus towards his fate while
in flight from the threats of the
The play was an Immediate
success when it was first performed at the Comedie des
Champs-Elysees in 1934.
The two other lead roles are
played by Doris Chilcott as the
Sphinx and Peter Brockington
as Tiresias, the soothsayer. Assisting Miss Coghill in direction
are Flora Murray of the Film
Society and Janice Beanirsto.
Charles Stegman, well-known
campus set man, is the creator
of the experimental sets and
three dimensional effects.
English Department productions of dramatic and literary
merit are presented to students,
staff and general public each
year free of charge. Amongst
others "Masses and Man," "The
Alchemist" and "The Ascent of
F. 6" will be remembered as
milestones of theatrical achievement on the campus.
The play will run Friday and
Saturday nights at 8:15 in the
UBC auditorium.

Intermarriage is an individual
problem, not a social one, sociologist Roy Brookbank said Wednesday, 'speaking on "Differences between Racial and Religious Discrimination." at a melting sponsored by the Student
Religious Council. I
"The growing proximity ,'.0f
young people of differing ra®s
and religions due to today's social mobility doesn't increase the
probability of intermarriage.
There is a tendency to gravitate
towards one's own kirtd' when
marriage is being considered.
Only the 'fringes' intermarry,"
he said.
Speaking   for   the  Canadian
Council of Christians and JeWs
of which he is Western Director,
Mr. Brookbank explained, although the Council disapproves
of mixed marriages, it does so

"We take an adverse position
because intermarriage will create additional marital problerris.
No one can predict the success
or failure of a marriage, b»t
different religious or racial
backgrounds certainly lessen
chances of success,' he said. :

American football, as played by the £irds, goes on view today at noon in the stadium, when the Gamma Phi Bulldogs
and the ADP's Terrors square off in the powder bowl.
At press time, odds against f
the blue and gold Bulldogs'
chances of copping the as yet

as 3 1. Money was changing
hands fast in the AMS office.

Though the Birds found it
difficult to fly against the Whirlwinds, a number of interesting
facts came to light.
First of all, their tenacious
defense showed itself often (despite the 89 point scored 'by the
visitors.) Practically the only defensive maneouver the Birds
could have employed would have
been to carry a step ladder to
cover Bevo Francis.
Even though they overloaded
him, he still picked up 36 points.
And, while the defense was covering him—the other 4 players
On his team often found themselves free.
Another significant fact sticks
out in the scoring cdlumn. A
couple of dark horses almost
beat the favorite. John McLeod
grabbed 18 points but was tied
for scoring honors by Gary Taylor. My, where has Gary been
hiding himself all this time?
The other darkhorse was Stu
Madill, who went well above
his usual two or three points to
pick up 8 points.
Yes, some of the "Young
Brood" seem to have come a
long way thfs season. Maybe its
not going to be such a bad year
after all hey Mr. P?
Of course after the Bird game
was over, the 'Trotters came
out and made fun at the expense
of thc Eilers.
'Trotter's scoring punch seemed to function on only one play.
In football it would be called
a sleeper. Bobby Hall their funny man would "relax" instead
of chasing after the hall and
would therefore be all alone
under the Eiler's basket when
his team mates would steal the
ball after an attempt on the
Harlem hoop.
Though it was amusing basketball, there was at the same time
highly scientific ball handling
and play making.
Delts, were also unavailable
but reports had them equally
Meanwhile, the antagonists, on
the eve of the Armageddon, held
only light workouts. The last
meal was held this morning in
the form of a steak breakfast.
Referees Don Coryell and
Dick Mitchell, though hesitant
about offering their limited experience for so important a contest, have finally been procured
for the officiating. Pete Gregory is head .linesman.
Earlier reported rumours at
bribery were denounced as fallacious today by Carol Gregory.
The plunging guard, earlier the
centre of a bitter import controversy (are you listening Bert
Bell?) has received permission
from the Football Commission to
play for the Bulldogs.
Though short handed in players, the Bulldogs are relying
on Hutch's version of a straight
T and the power of hidden
threat kicker Sylvia Downs to
carry them to victory in the
powder bowl.
Terrors will reply with a split-
T attack, bolstered by a wealth
of substitutions. Bulldogs will
have only a few extras while
the ADP's hope to field two complete platoons.
Meanwhile, in the tradition of
football, the Football Commission has lined up a band, half-
time entertainment, and cheerleaders. Rod Smith and Sandy
Ross, co-inspirants of last week's
Engineer's riot, will be released
from custody to cheer for the

In   Evergreen  Meet
Varsity's publicized swimming team, who have been training under coach Marilyn Bell Howell with Chadwickian persistence, have their first meet at the YMCA pool at 2:30 p.m.
on Saturday, January 22, against Evergreen Conference's Western Washington. *
One of the highlights of this
clash will be assaults on  Con
ference records by UBC speedsters. Don McLennan will tackle
the 50 and 100 yard distances,
while Bob Bagshaw will handle
the 200 and 400 yard races.
Both are given fair chances by
coach Maxie of setting new
Other above average competitors are Doug Kilburn who won
the backstroke and medley in
last year's conference meet; Dune
Maclnnes, who won the 50 and
100 yard races in last year's
Conference meet, should do well
again this year.
Newcomers showing strongly
are Hong Kong's Eddy Lee at
backstroke; Gerry Van Tets, who
placed second in that event in
the Canadian Inter-collegiate
meet last year; Brian Harvey
John Purdy and Wayne Pretty
are others pitting their "all"
