UBC students pay
premium rentals

OVERLOADED PLUG is typical of conditions in which   UBC   students   must   live   in   off-campus
houses and apartments. Ubyssey survey found dozens of suites and rooms listed on the official
housing administration register to be dark, dirty, and cramped. (More pictures  page three).
Business is booming for Point Grey homeowners
with spare rooms and few scruples.
The majority of off-campus rooms and suites in
private homes are dirty, dim, cramped and cold.
Studying conditions are inadequate. Most homeowners fail to provide a desk for their tenants or
But these rooms and suites are fetching top
prices from students who find available room close
to the campus at a premium.
The majority of off-campus
suites rented to University students are illegal.
That is, they are suites in a
section of the city zoned by city
council for one-family dwellings.
This information was obtained
by a Ubyssey survey in August
of Point Grey rooms and suites
available to university students.

The broken parts of a child's

To get to the upstairs room the
reporter had to wade through
foul kitchen smells past a continuously yapping dog.
The room, with board, cost
$70 and was shared with another student.
There was one window, four
feet by two.
The room had no desk. "We
didn't buy one," explained the
landlady, "because a good desk
costs too much."
There were no book-cases, no
chairs, just two beds.

them, were expected to study.

The latest fad to hit UBC has
met with a more than enthusiastic response.
Known commonly as Lineup
this newest sport has completely swept the campus and has
gained a following of thousands.
"What a fabulous way to
waste time!" one enthralled
co-ed exclaimed to me in the
Field House as we argued about
whether the cashier was one
or two miles from where we
were standing.
"Isn't it a laugh watching all
these people?" she went on.
"Ha ha," I answered weakly,
knocking oyer my precarious
pile of books as I tried to move
them up four inches.

Of course listening to some
of the complaints from persons
playing Lineup might make the
uninitated wonder but obviously it's all a front or why would
the game be so popular?
Even car drivers have gone
all out.
"Man, what a dull life it
must have been for people
without their daily Lineup," a
happy motorist commented as
he calmly demolished the
motorcycle in front of him.
He was still smiling when the
police finally got through to
him an hour later.

"The Waiting Game'5') seems to

Antiquity Squeaks'{from bygone Ubysseys):
"... Disturbed as we were
when we heard that voice—it
sounds lake a toilet bowl with
the hiccups—glurping and
howling from countless jukeboxes and radios, we felt fairly secure . . . this sort of thing
wouldn't infiltrate the University.
"But now we've got the
sickish feeling we we're wrong.
" ... we've even heard of
one of. the bright young men
in the Physics Department who
owns every record Elvis ever
These are disquieting symptoms; for once Elvis gets a toehold at UBC, there's no telling
how far this thing might go.
"Actually, there's little we
can do to check the creeping
rot of rock-and-roll at UBC.
"... But if the Radio society dares' to play so much as
twelve bars of any Presley
record, this newspaper fervent
ly hopes that all right-thinking
students will stand up on their
hind legs, ' and squawk like

Frosh to replace

TORONTO  (CUP)—Riyerson Institute of Technology officials are counting on failures at Christmas to enable them to
—: 'enrol more first year students,
Students  obtaining  less   than
50 per cent ° in engineering
technology exams at Christmas
will be asked to leave the institution and will be replaced after the Christmas vacation by
other first year arvolicants who
will cram first year courses into
four months.
Christmas entrants will pay
a reduced tuition fee.
The move was forced 'this
year by acute overcrowding at
the technical school. Ryerson
registrar Al Sauro is unable to
estimate the number of rejections his office has made so far
this year. At last count 400
qualified students had been
turned down.
Almost 180 rejected students
are taking comparable first
year courses at four Toronto
technical schools. Three of the
four institutions have hired the
unexpected influx of students.
If students successfully complete
the course they will be accepted
into second year at Ryerson.
Students at the "satellite"
technical schools will be asked
to leave if they do not obtain
50 per cent on Christmas exams.

When salaries were a matter
Of private negotiation, UBC
could offer a prestige professor
$17,000 for example. In many
cases other campuses that
wanted his services hesitated in
making an offer, fearing they
would be outbid and embarrassed.
Now these universities have
only to consult UBC's financial
statement, offer him $2,000 more
than UBC, and our prestige professor may be lost. Two members of the same faculty may
now  compare salaries.
This will raise eyebrows if
pne discovers another is being
paid more for essentially the
same service.

students. i „_^—————__^

she told a reporter. "I understand most students can take a

A team of girl reporters was
told by landlords that they did
not care if they rented space
to both men and women.
In only three rooms The
Ubyssey visited was there a
book case.
Ubyssey reporters found that
landlords had put "out a minimum of expense to make their
suites habitable.
Some homeowners expected
their tenants to wash clothes,
dishes and themselves in laundry tubs.
Reporters found unpainted
concrete walls and floors, and
filthy bathroom fixtures.
These basement suites, liberally sprinkled throughout Point
Grey, usually have one small
window serving three rooms.
A girl reporter asked a prospective landlady if she would
supply just one comfortable
chair for a suite.
"Good heavens, no," said the
landlady. "I think the bed is
quite suitable if you want to relax."
To help students avoid substandard off-campus housing,
the universty is pushing ahead
with its residence construction
The housing administration
is considering a plan for several housing blocks, each containing 800 students.
The blocks would be built in
a large circular area around the
gym-swimming pool complex.
Malcolm Scott, AMS treasurer, said several plans are under consideration by the student
council and the Board of Governors. "All these plans are
strictly,tentative^" he said,. ( ,.

of homes had the right to discriminate if they wished.
The Ubyssey asked the following questions in a random poll
1 Do you have an opinion on
what should be done to erase
off-campus discrimination?
2 Do you think more on-campus
residences are the answer?
3 What is your opinion of the
way the story is presented?
4 Do you think the Housing Administration should have a
blacklist of the discriminating
5 Do you think that these people
should be reported to the city
and fined?

"Many members of the club
(made up of students from
China) had trouble finding off-

But I thought it was a true
shortage of rooms until I read
about the way an Occidental
reporter could get a room,

Val Romilly, vice-president
of Caribbean Students Union,
praised the Ubyssey's investigations of the housing set-up.
Romilly said: "This landlord's thing has been a problem
for a long,  long time.
"It's high time the students
of UBC found out what's happening. Maybe this will do
some good."
Commented Cecil Ash, also on
the Caribbean  club executive;
"Colored students do no^
wish to be placed on a pedestal.
But they do want to be treated
as simply just another student."
Clemence Kudiabor, graduate
from Ghana studying regional
planning, said he'd seen and experienced several instances of
"subtle discrimination."
The Ghanian graduate student
proposed: "This is the sort of
thing that.should be aired at a
seminar or  group  discussion.
"One interview like this puts
the whole problem on too personal a level. It's got to be put
on another level if it's going to
do some good."
International House's director
played down city newspaper
charges that foreign students
often fail in their studies because  of color-bar worries.
"I haven't heard anything
about this," said Arthur Sager.
"But»I don't believe it's true." Page 4
House work needed off campus
The head-in-the-sand policy of the University in regard to off-campus housing is causing
hardship for students.
There is not even a token effort being made
to ensure that students forced to live off
campus are receiving fit accommodation.
And, in many cases, we submit, the accommodations offered by Point Grey homeowners
are not fit.
The individual student can do nothing. He
is forced to live close to the campus because
of the pressure of studies and his limited funds.
In most cases, he has only limited time to find
accommodation. He must pick and choose until
he finds the best accommodation from an at
best mediocre selection.
And what is being done to help him? The
answer appears to  he  nothing.
The housing administration issues a bulletin listing houses, suites and rooms that are
available for students. But these accommodations have never been seen by the housing
administration and never will be.
The housing administration—.strapped by
limited operating funds—does not inspect these
homes to determine if rooms in them are of a
standard suitable for students.
And there is no official attempt to regulate
the exorbitant rents gouged from students
forced to live in these places.
Housing administration head John Haar has
said that if he had the money he would set up
an inspection program of student housing.
The Ubyssey suggests it is time the University recognizes its responsibility in this area
and provide money for such inspection.
If UBC cannot provide housing on campus,
it certainly has a moral obligation to try to
improve the standards for students forced to
look elsewhere for a place to live.
Bureaucracy: it's rather funny
When human beings gather in large groups
there is always an abundance of small—and
often humorous—^happenings that indicate that
human nature is the same everywhere.
This university—which now has the largest
day enrolment in Canada—is no exception.
With nearly 14,000 students and 6,000 members
of the faculty and staff crowded onto the
campus, the stage is set.

"To make sure everyone belongs here, this is
Eng. 200," Everybody gets up and walks out.

Field House, the cash register rings up: "GROCERIES."

the claustrophobic nature of the place before
After searching five minutes for a tray, going to the wrong place for coffee and failing to

Commonwealth: Real or ?
With the deplorable display of muddle-he&dedness
and hypocrisy taking place
at the London Prime Minister's Conference, the inevitably confused public should
be invited to turn for guidance to the uncluttered minds
of academic youth.
Although  in the annals of
higher learning the student's
contribution to  public  issues
has not always been remarkable for width of scope and
depth of thought, it has been
impressive through originality and frankness. Unlike any

This -writer is at a loss to detect the existence of a Commonwealth and would gladly
accept  the assistance of one
of the old men at London in
finding it.
What is common in the
Commonwealth? Is it a common political purpose? Members of the so-called Commonwealth follow widely diversified foreign policies, some
supporting the Western Alliance, others adhering to the
neutrality of the Afro-Asian
bloc, with some of them
dangerously close to the Communist bloc. India and Paki-

Contrary to .popular belief,
British traditions and institutions of government .are in

The monarchy is rejected
by several members; the right
of organized opposition and
the freedom of the press have
been suspended by some.
Certainly the argument of
common trade interests must
be rejected since one does
not need a commonwealth to
carry on trade. Furthermore,

Critics may point out that
the real Commonwealth consists of its white members, to
whom the above analysis does
not apply. However, it appears that the bonds of the
"inner" Commonwelath are
the result of economic utility
rather than patriotic dedication. And Britain cannot be
expected to pay sacrifices to
the economic utilities of independent nations, British as
they may be.
Traditionally, New Zealand
and Austrlia depended on the
British Navy for their defence against the peoples that
surround them. However, Her
Majesty's Navy no longer
rules the seas, and the only
real military protection, if
any, afforded to Australia
and New Zealand is the re
suit of arrangements with the
Western Alliances as a whole,
such as SEATO, of which
Britain is by no means the
most important partner.
It is difficult indeed to see
any other meaning in the
word "Commonwealth" than
that of a collective term denoting those countries that
were formerly part of the
British Empire.
In the present age of rapid
social change the criterion for
good statesmanship is undoubtedly the ability to reassess present situations realistically and to shape the
future with bold imagination.

O, it was clever! You didn't

Illustrated. Everybody was
standing outside after registering,'and everybody had a little
orange and black and white
The cancer of advertising had
struck each student as he was
shoved around in the Armoury
It was insidious, but even
worse, it was insulting: 27
weeks for $1.97, or the bargain
offer of $4.00 for the entire
If this trend continues we
will degenerate from magazines, through wheat-puffs, to
something like aphrodisiacs
"for the student who needs that
extra pep after registration."
Let's stop it NOW, before
Time runs out and Life comes
to an end.
Yours truly,

Young has his own CBC-TV

Ivy League
COLUMBUS, O., (CUP)—Nuclear testing by the great powers has been condemned by the
United States National Student
The motion condemning nuclear testing was passed by the
15th USNSA National Congress
here in August. It lacked unanimity, however, passing by a
margin of only 34 votes. The
vote was 215 in favor, 181
against and 11 abstentions. Debate on the issue lasted five
The split on the issue came
when c. section of the Congress
wished to have the wording of
the resolution changed to soften
the action against the U.S. This
group did not wlsn to condemn
the U.S. for their resumtion ci
tests and introduced an amendment which read that the Association "regrets that the United
States felt compelled to resume
I testing."   The   amendment   was
; defeated.
In justifying action on the issue of nuclear testing the resolution stated "... students must
assume the responsibility to examine and understand the origins of this threat (war) and the
issues  causing its aggravation."
Another amendment to the
motion, sympathizing with U.S.
testing but condemning Soviet
testing was defeated.

Elephant racing is the latest
intercollegiate sport.
It began this summer at
Orange County State College,
a three-year-old junior college
just a roller coaster ride from
Disneyland and known as Mickey Mouse Tech by its rivals.
The dean of students at
Orange County issued a model
constitution for clubs wanting
college recognition.
The name of the mythical
organization in the model cpn-

Only four universities took
up the challenge.
After a period of frantic fund

their     elephants,     and     15,000

All quiet on the

No, the Engineers are not apathetic this year.
They convinced this reporter
I was "all wet" in suspecting
their disorganization by submerging me (along with Engineering Vice-President Don Russell) in their hydraulic tank

The Engineers thoughtfully
asked me if I wanted my shoes

Thompsons traps
prepare for pinches
No radar traps have yet invaded the University area but
they're coming.
According to Sgt. D. G.
Thompson of the University
Detachment RCMP, radar
traps will operate this year as
they did for the last winter
Sgt. Thompson would not
say when or where the radar
units will be set up, but pointed out that the University
area was "radar patrolled"
and would remain so.
William Griffin, the bad
cheque artist, is back at UBC
A man using the name has
tried to pass the phoney cheques
at the Field House bookstore for
the second year in a row.
He is slim, young, with fair
hair, weights about 150 pounds
and is 5 feet 11 inches or six
feet tall, said bookstore manager
John Hunter Thursday.
Last year the man passed a bad
cheque in the Field House by
showing a driver's licence belonging to William Griffin. But
police investigated and cleared
the man to whom the licence had
been issued.
So, when the same licence
showed up this year, the cashier
to whom if was shown knew the
young man was an imposter.
The forger ran from the Field
House before bookstore officials
could grab him.
Hunter said he and two of his
staff got a good look at the man
and could probably identify him
if they saw him again.
He said the bookstore has
some trouble with returned
cheques but most students were
honest and made good the payment as soon as they were notified-
The man involved could be
an outsider, not a student, Hunter said.
Hunter said he had asked the
RCMP to investigate.

Morning tie-up headache

UBC's traffic problems are

General Sir Ouvry Roberts,
director    of    university    traffic,

NFCUS Congress asks
for university leaders
OTTAWA (CUP)—Big problems and bigger responsibilities face Canada's universities in the years ahead, 130 delegates
were told at the fifth annual NFCUS Seminar held at Ot-
tawa's  Carleton University. "
Seminar topic was "The Place
of Universities in Canadian
Approaching the subject from
different angles were Dr. Stuart
Reid, executive secretary 'of
the Canadian Association of
University Teachers, and Dr.
Henry Hicks, vice-president of
Dalhousie University.
iDr. Reid said great pressures
are brought to bear on universities to produce the kind of
people who.,fit into society—
but who carjhot lea^ it.
He criticised Canadian universities for lacking identity
and said he' feared their freedom to produce the special kind
of men needed to lead and
change; society was steadily decreasing. .
RCaiP investigations of campus political activities were in
example of the suppresion of
the special right of freedom
universities have enjoyed in
Other countries and other times,
he said.
Dr.    Hicks,    former    Liberal
Premier of Nova Scotia, agreed
some "ivory tower" tradition
must be preserved in universities, but he said he saw extreme
danger to fundamental freedoms
because of the lack of contact
between the universities and
There must be closer contact
between politics and education,
he said.
University education should
enable men to best realize their
responsibilities as free men,
and to make the functioning of
free, representative government
possible, he said.
He said he feared the uneducated "let's try something different" attitude could eventually enable radical, unreliable
political groups to gain control
of government;-.''
"We need a. larger minority
of educated people in politics,"
he said. "There must be a continuous guard against the attitude of boredom with established truths."

With construction being the
rage, the athletic department
has decided to get into the act.
- Construction has begun on a
new Athletic Complex to be located south of C parking lot. A
grant of $13,500 is being used to
develop five acres of land to be
called Woolfson Fields.
At this site four playing fields,
a cricket pitch, and stands for
1,500 spectators have been completed. Starting this year all of
the Jayvees football and rugby
games will be played on these
Within the next two to five
years the Stadium which is now
located on East Mall, will hr
torn down and a new Stadium
will be built as a part of the
new Complex.
The need for field area has
been made acute by the loss of
a small field behind the Brock
which was turned into a parking lot and the loss of another
field where the new Education
Building now stands.
Laments Athletic Director Bus
Phillips, "We need playing fields
desperately and this is the
only place to which we can
move." The present playing
fields near the Gym are slowlv
being whittled away by parking
lots and new buildings.
The plans on the drawing
board call for the addition of
another eight acres of land to
form a thirteen acre sports complex. When complete this area
will contain a new sports stadium, several playing fields, additional spectator seating. Complete dressing rooms with shower facilities and probably the
Winter Sports Arena when and
if it is completed.
With the great need for more
building area it has been decided to relocate the sports stadium
as a part of the Athletic Complex in two years.

Meet Western
at 2 Saturday
The UBC Thunderbirds will
be long on offence and short on
defence when they meet Western Washington State College in
the season opener at UBC Stadium Saturday.
Birds have a great scoring
punch but that's only half the
story. The defence is miserably
What's more, Western Washington is touted as the team to
beat in the tough Evergreen
The Birds will be using two
complete offensive ba.ckfields
which Coach Frank Gnup figures are equally good and which
in his opinion, "should be able
to move the ball against any
Players who will be used extensively in the Bird backfieid
include Peter Black, Norm
Thomas, and the perennial
standout brother combination of
Jim and Gord Olafson. Tonis
Tutti who returns to the Birds
after a year lay off is expected
to give the Birds the inside drive
that they lost with the departure of Roy Bianco.
Gnup   says   that   Tutti   will
probably  go   both   ways  in  an
effort to shore up the extremely weak defensive  wall.
The defensive problems are
caused not from a lack cf
players but rather from a shortage of experienced men to fill
key positions; notably the deep
back or safety slots.
"I   can move   linebackers   or
. . . ooh, ooh -
ends back to the deep slots but
then what do I do for players
to fill these gaps," says Gnup.v
"I can't put green kids into the
deep slots because if they make
a mistake there is no one who ~
can cover for them.
Then in a humanitarian vein
he explained, "You can't put the
green men in the line or backer slots against a team like
Western, they would get killed."-
Despite these weaknesses,
which to the newcomer to UBC
football would seem to be insurmountable, Gnup is confident that his team will show
well Saturday. "Every year I
have the same problem and we
always come up with a solu-"
tion," Gnup said.

to Frank Gnup's roster.
For the past two years, the
Birds' bench has been about
"%s deep in reserves as Marpole
Slough. Injuries in key positions couldn't be filled adequately, although there was
.the usual abundance of bodies.
This year, however, Gnup
has been chomping his cigars
with the elation of a new father. Gnup ran exuberantly
through the typical pre-season
.questions from the press, like
Willie Fleming through the
Burnaby Twins' defense.
Yes, he growled, it was the
•biggest pre-season turnout in
Thunderbird history. Something like 65 or 70.
Yes, he said, there were
more experienced players
around the Stadium than the
Brock card room this year.
In the middle of the summer,
Gnup was quite prepared to
start a new television show
entitled Where's My Line?
•   He lost standout guard Moe
Anderson in a tragic car crash
near Everett in July. Al Bianco, Bob Knifton, Wayne
Henry, and Harry Prout, all
first-stringers, flunked out.
Guard Byron Kemp graduated, and top end Tom Andrews
found work more rewarding.
There were more holes in his
line than in the road to C-lot.
Even the backfield was in
bad shape. All-star Roy Bianco graduated, and hard-
running Peter Black was not
expected to return.
Enter Lome "Joe" Davies,
a solid, crew-cut gentleman
with a football record as long
as your arm, and an eligibility
rule which in effect blacklists
any UBC student who plays
for an outside team against
the wishes of University officials.
Davies, best-known at the
moment as one of Dave
Skrien's aides in the B.C.
Lions' camp, is regarded in
Vancouver junior and high
school football circles as one
of the best coaches around. It
is from these two areas that
UBC has been losing most of
its potential football talent in
past years-players who didn't
want to come to UBC because
they had the mistaken idea
that the football played here
wasn't much good.
Prodigal Sons Return
Davies, a player for two
years and a coach for five with
the Vancouver junior Blue
Bombers, and the holder of a
Master's degree from the University of Oregon, appears to
have changed this unfavorable
situation immensely.
t The effect of Mr. Davies'
efforts and the new rule has
been the acquisition of at least
eight experienced players for
this year's team. Two of the
Bird's three touchdowns in
Saturday's grad game were
scored by newcomers. Four
were in the starting- offensive
* Ends Robin Dyke and Tom
Thomson and tackle Peter
Lewis (North Shore Cougars),
backs Norm Thomas and Dick
(gibbons and guard Dave Gibbons (Meralomas), and corner
linebacker Glen Cunningham
(Blue Bombers) all attended
UBC   last   year,   but   played
football in the Junior Big Four
league. This year, they're with
the 'Birds, along with end
Peter Kempf, who transferred
from Western Washington, Davies' alma mater.
Other newcomers and returnees include George Braj-
cich, 6'2" 200-lb. tackle from
Vancouver Tech, centre Bill
Turpin, defensive back Gary
Bruce, and halfback Jimmy
Bruce and Olafson, both
standouts two years ago, took
last year out, while Turpin is
back after teaching for three
Add it all up, and you have
the best Bird team since the
1959 squad that lost in the
Canadian final. Predictions?
In 10 games, the Birds will
lose only two or three—maybe to Willamette, maybe to
Western Washington, and maybe one to Alberta, although
nobody's seen Manitoba.
Hold That Tiger...
New basketball coach Pete
Mullins plans to start workouts for the junior varsity and
j*unior teams within two
weeks, so that players who
don't make the grade will still
l|ave plenty of time to attend
the workouts of downtown
teams. Both the JV's and
Braves will play in the Junior
IMen's League this year.
*"" It's the first time since they
dropped out of the Senior A
League four years ago that the
JV's have been in a league.
Lack of league competition
has been one of the major cri-
#eisms of the basketball program in past—the JV's played
only- meaningless exhibition
The new eligibility rule appears to have stopped the
player drift to outside teams,
which reached panic proportions last year. The Birds' basketball team, hardest hit, have
6'6" all-star Keith Hartley and
6'5" Mike Potkonjak back in
the fold, although Dave Way,
Bill McDonald and Lance Stephens will take a year out of
school to play for Lethbridge
Broders in the Pan-Am Games
and world championships in
the Philippines . . . Ken Winslade will coach the Braves.. .
