Dr. Macdonald spoke at the
opening of UBC's new $1.5 million College o fEducation Building Thursday.
His remarks were made shortly after Education Minister Les
Peterson had snipped the red

across two doors of the new

his three-button ivy league suit,
topped with a yellow and red

this year, AMS treasurer Malcolm Scott said Thursday.
"I see no point in staying in

"NFCUS is operating merely
to perpetuate  NFCUS."
Scott said NFCUS has done
little in the way of gaining government concessions for students
or welding them into a united
Scott had just returned from
the NFCUS national congress in
Sherbrooke, Que.
He expressed "frustration"
with the way the organization
handles its business.
He said other universities attending the Congress had also
said they will consider pulling
out unless the organization improves.
"They argued we don't give
them enough money to operate
on," he said.
"Well, we gave it to them

an increase of 10 cents per student in addition to the 60 cents
per capita NFCUS now gets)

federal government for grants
and scholarships and promote

Frat%    need    'fun    only     sign
The Delta Upsilon president said it well
■while trying to defend his happy fraternity
home against the charges of irate neighbors.
"Go down on frat row and you'll probably
find exactly the same thing."
That's been our thesis for years.
Despite all their protestations of being charitable organizations dedicated to the betterment of university society through fellowship,
they are dedicated to one thing: a good time
for themselves.
And there's surely nothing wrong with that,
if they'd admit it.
But fraternities steadfastly hold that their
goals are to donate money to charity, do things
for the needy and promote good scholarship.
How do they accomplish these goals:
Fraternities at UBC, and we assume them
to be representative of others on this continent, raise money for charity by holding a weekend drunk once a year to which all the campus*
is invited.
Not only fratmen, but all students, can
feel they're doing their little bit for the underprivileged by going to Mardi Gras and by
"drinking till it hurts."
They also hold Help Week, at which time
they telephone the local newspapers to come
and take pictures of the young college boys
taking time out from studies to help the needy.
And good scholarship. Although some fraternities point with pride to the number of
Rhodes or similar scholars they've turned out
in the past go-many years, we question just
how much their fraternity associations improved their marks.
We suggest that these people were scholars
before they ever went near a fraternity and
like the other people here, they joined for a
good time. . .
Fraternities, as exemplified by the parties
held at the DU house, are for fun. So, why
don't they admit it.

WhaVs  wrong with page 2?        Colleges invest money
Complaints are often heard that editors
of The Ubyssey are ceaselessly foisting their
opinions on the unprotected student body.
, And it's true. But it is our opinion that
our opinions are better than no opinions at all.
And if we don't get any other opinions all
we can do is print our opinions, opinionated
as they may be.
We like people who hate us—as long as
they take their righteous wrath to a typewriter
and send us stinging letters to the editor, chastising us for our opinionated opinions, our unfair news stories, or whatever.
Opinions, informed and otherwise, are the
keys to a good newspaper.
We're doing our share, attacking and defending things at will. But what about you?
Are  you  attacking or  defending  us?   Or
* Freedom, not license
tilting quixotically at campus windmills? Or
pontificating on the political future of our
great nation?
Or how about plucking the feathers of the
Eagle to the south? Or pulling Uncle Sam's
Letters to the editor are an accurate indicator of a community's vigor. UBC seems
pretty vigorless.
We're beginning to think nobody out there
is thinking at all. Or maybe there's just nobody out there.
If you're tired of reading our opinions, let
us have some of yours.
Pretty soon we may run out of opinions and
start printing excerpts from the John Birch
blue book.
And that would be sad.
For today: A compromise
Sexy magazine covers (typical of the contents) dot our
newsstands, lewd movies are
frequent in our respectable
movie houses, and lusty and
smutty humor discolors many
a stage play, television show,
or radio program. Yet we
hear it argued, "let us have
no censorship." Surely today's moral breakdown is in-
. dicative of the fact that the
low moral influences upon
the minds of o u r younger
generation are having far
greater effect than are the
good. Many argue that instead of limiting censorship,
it should be increased—and
no doubt it would be increased were not Materialism
the major god of North
Americans today. If we are
honest, many folk—the masses—- don't know what is good
for them and what is not.
Man without a doubt finds
the material, the pretty, the
glittering and the glamorous
most attractive. Without censorship the free expressions
of our publishers, writers,
actors, etc. with that which is
sensuous and immoral would
be continually perverting the
minds of man until at last he
finds himself lost in the
depths of moral turpitude.
• • *
However others argue, if
censorship is permitted, man's
freedom is limited. But let
us be careful that we mean
freedom and not license.
Freedom is that which makes
our democracy what it is; it
is good. License is not good—
but rotting. But when the individual would assert himself
to the point that his personal
freedom is turned to license
then there must be some deterrent factor introduced.
Thus, we have censorship.
There are some individuals
in every society who don't
know when to stop in this
matter of free expression. Because they cannot control
what they would communicate. To protect the public
from these persons (and our
society is full of them) the
censors operate — for better
or for worse. In spite of their
noble intentions, however, is
this not belittling man?
• ..   •      •
But cencorship has been
guilty of taking a dim
view of man—repeating that
old cliche that human nature
is human nature and there is
nothing we can do about it.
If there is poverty in the
world, that's because man is
naturally improvident; if
there is unemployment,, that
is because man is naturally
lazy; if there are filthy books
on our newsstands, that's because the minds and morals
of man are twisted. With this
pessimistic view, the mean
and debasing elements in humanity are certainly permanent and incapable of being
To talk, then, about the
Golden Rule, the brotherhood of man, and a peaceful
world  is  absolutely a waste
of breath.
No, censorship is not the
answer; and as I've pointed
out, neither is non-censorship. But perhaps the clue to
the problem lies somewhere in between. Since our
society is not yet ready for
non-censorship, some kind of
restriction is definitely necessary.
•      •      •
I cannot see the wisdom
of placing" a rotten apple
in the midst of a whole barrel of good ones. On the
other hand, we must object
to censorship too, because it
places man under the ban of
abominable puritanical codes
whereas he ought to adopt
sound theoretical principles
to ground his behaviour.
Surely the most important
objection to censorship is that
it diverts families, churches
and schools from their main
job of building character by
providing each person with
his own standards of selection. When the character-
building institutions do their
work well, they raise up a
citizenry whose standards are
so high that nobody will look
twice at the waste paper that
litters our newsstands today.
Individuals will never be safe
until they are equipped with
such standards. And our society will never he secure
until all its people are free to
read, watch, or hear anything but use. their freedom
to read, watch, or hear the
best that has been thought
and said..
From  the   CHRISTIAN
Colleges and universities,
both large and small, do not
allow their money to lie
around and do nothing. They
put it to work or them.
This is disclosed in the latest
survey of what leading colleges and universities do with
the money they receive in
gifts and endowments.
Conducting the annual survey is Boston Fund, a large
mutual investment company.
Covering the activity in the
market place of 65 colleges
and universities in all, the
survey includes that of two
Canadian universities.
The latest survey shows
that International Business
Machines Corporation, large
producer of business machines
and electronic-data-processing
equipment, was the most popular stock of these institutions
as of June 30, 1961.
IBM overtook Standard Oil
Company of New Jersey which
fell to second place on the in
vestment rosters of  these  institutions, v
Boston Fund conducts these
annual surveys because it
follows the same balanced
concept of investing as the
colleges and universities gen- '
erally do. That is, they all
regularly shift their investments from common stocks
into preferred stocks and
bonds and back again to get
the most out of their money.   -
This gives them a particular
advantage, because when common stock prices drop, bond
and preferred stock prices generally rise. .*
Interestingly enough, investment by the college funds and
the investment company industry were closely parallel. IBM
also heads .the list of the 10
largest common stock holdings of the mope than 300 investment companies that make
up the industry.
Boston Fund's survey shows
that common stocks still dominate the college-endowment

believes government that governs least governs best.
In the future, he said, there
will have to be a movement
away from this point of view
toward greater acceptance of
strong government.
Red  influence slipping
On the process of liberalization of totalitarian countries,
Dr. McKenzie said he sees much
favorable evidence in Communist countries  and satellites.
He said totalitarianism is not
strong in Poland because such
institutions as the church exist
to provide a division of powers
in the country.
Despite the one party government, he said, there is some divi
sion of loyalties and not one
governing body over all areas
of human interest.
He said the division of powers
seemed to be spreading among
the satellites.
In the case of Russia, he said,
the most encouraging development is the freedom of inquiry
that has been granted to Soviet

"are very nice."
Alf should know. He's the
only male member of the
Ryerson Home Economics
course. Sometimes he feels a
bit tense when his name is
called out for attendance, he
says, but on the whole everything is pleasant.

him to be a school teacher.
She wasn't too keen on him
taking  the  all-female  course.
Dr.McKenzie said he felt this
freedom could not be restricted
tc science, but would spread to
the social sciences and eventually to other areas.
"This is my greatest long-
range hope for the breakdown
of totalitarianism,"  he said.
Prof. Tussman claimed there
is a need for education of underdeveloped nations in the processes of democracy.
He said unrest in many
emerging countries is a result
of their lack of respect for
democratic ways.
Prof. Tussman gave Cuba as
an example of a country preparing for democracy.
"Any regime that tries to
educate its people is preparing
them for something," Tussman
"I think Castro is preparing
Cubans to take a greater part
in forming their own destinies."
Dr. Elias said the underdeveloped nations always face the
question of accepting democracy
and slower progress or a totalitarian form of government and
fast economic growth.
He said he personally is in
favor of democracy.
He said Communist China is
an example of a country that
has bad fast economic process
but has not satisfied its people.

frustrates picket line
There are some days when
it doesn't pay to organize a
picket line.
Fifty UBC New Democrats
labored Wednesday afternoon
organizing a picket line for
the opening of the new Education Building attended by
government officials.
The picketers planned to
protest Point Grey students'
ineligibility to vote in the
forthcoming byelection.
But their pJans were
squelched by the Attorney-
General's announcement that
students living temporarily in
the riding would De enfranchised.
Gleeful members of the
campus Liberal club executive,
bearing discarded picket placards for evidence reported
the NDP's frustration Thursday.
NDP president Ron Pollard
admitted picket lines were
organized and placards made.
"But our p 1 a n s were
scrapped at 5:00 p.m. Wednesday when we heard the announcement on the radio," he
He unwillingly credited the
UBC Liberals with prompting
the Attorney-General's decision.

UBC's 1963-64 rugby
Thunderbirds will-travel to

against- university teams.
Plans for the tour were
initiated by UBC's coach Albert Laithwaite on April 10,
1958 when he approached the
Universities Athletic Union
in Britain. The Birds will be
playing in England, Scotland,
Ireland and Wales. An additional game has been arranged in Paxis.
•  .  •     •
Birds open their tour with
a match against the Universities Athletic Union on Saturday, December 14 in London.
From there, the Birds move
to Wales to play the University • of Wales and then to
Scotland to take on the Scottish Universities. Next is a
match against the Mersey-
side XV.
•      •      •
The highlight of the tour
will be a game against a combined Oxford-Cambridge XV
on December 28—if it can be
arranged. If it falls through
there will l5e a game against
the Royal Air Force.
On New Year's dsy, 1964,
UBC will take on a combined
London University-United
Hospitals XV. After this
match the Birds fly to Paris
to meet the University of
Paris in their only game on
the continent.

basketball squad ready for action this year.
Coach Alan Yarr has dream
ed up a new training program
to remove the dullness of running only laps or sprints. The
hew program Includes distance

Yarr intends to use the fast
break extensively this year, and
the Jayvees will have to be in
top shape to keep up the gruelling pace.
Bob Barazzuol, a high school
standout for   Notre   Dame  two

There are 14 players fighting
for spots on the Jayvee squad.
Six of them were with the UBC
Braves last year, two were with
the Jayvees, and six are newcomers.
Coach Yarr is pleased with
his team's performance so far.
"They've got good spirit and a
good attitude," he said.
The first string tackle said
unusually strenuous drills were
the reason for his sudden retirement.
The rift between Turpin and
the coaches began when Turpin
was made to tackle a continuous
line of blockers during practice.
Head Coach Frank Gnup expressed few regrets about Tur-
pih's departure.
1 "He never produced to our
expectations," said Gnup. "With
the proper outlook he could
have been good."
"This is the kind, of drill that
he heeded, but he figured he'd
had enough," said Gnup.
Earlier this year, Turpin tried
out with the 'B.C. Lions, but
was cut before the season began.
The loss of Turpin comes at
a time when Gnup cannot dfford
to be losing players.

To be a member of the Thunderbirds crew is something
like riding on a roller coaster—up one minute and down the
One minute you are rowing on Lake Lucerne in the World
Rowing Championships, with all Canada, in fact all the world—
watching you. The next minute you finish sixth, and it's back to
lonely morning workouts in Coal Harbor—with nobody but
the seagulls watching you.
The rowers started workouts this year in May. Four months
later, in September, the eight-oared crew finished sixth in Lucerne.
Sixth, in the strongest rowing field ever assembled.
That's something like running a four-minute mile after
two weeks' practice—it just isn't done.
For the Thunderbirds were competing against crews who
have trained together for years—crews who have been practicing continuously for many months—crews who are the pick
of the European continent, where rowing is a major sport.
* *       *
Consider, for example, the German eight-oared crew, who
won the World Championship. They have been rowing together
for the past four years; each member of the crew had at least
five years' experience before that. And every two or three
weeks they have a chance to row against another highly-rated
In comparison, the Birds are inexperienced country cousins.
When they arrived in Lucerne, the Thunderbirds had a
scant five races on their record—three with Washington, one in
California, and the Canadian BEG trials in Ontario.
Their first four races were held soon after training started
—and they lost all four.
Then they began to get into shape.
* *       *
Rowing twice daily on Coal Harbor, the Birds lowered their
time enough to earn a trip to St. Catherines, Ontario, for Canada's BEG trials.
Back east the eights really got hot, whopping the St. Catherines rowing ,elub by three and one-half lengths, and setting
' an unofficial world record for 2,000 metres.
The St. Catherines cliib had won the American Nationals
two weeks earlier.
The fours got into the act too, by upsetting the favored
eastern crew. With John Lecky and Herb Challier in the pairs,
*it was an all-B.C. team for the trip to Switzerland.
Switzerland—with the eights in sixth place and the fours
and pairs a respectable ninth.
This is the only time UBC crews have finished worse
than third in international competition—a pretty fair record
..for a "country cousin."
* *       *
These are the highlights of the Birds' career:
1954 Eights: BEG gold medal.
1955 Eights: Beat Russians at Henley, second in final.
1956 Fours:   Olympic gold medal.
Eights: Olympic silver medal.
1958 Eights: BEG gold medal.
1959 Eights: Second in Pan-Am games.
1960 Eights: Olympic silver medal.
1962    Eights: Sixth in World Championships.
Fours:   Ninth in World Championships.
Pairs:    Ninth in World Championships.
Ashley Lucky, the coxswain of the Thunderbird eight-oared
crew, is worried that he may not be able to compete in the
Fan-Am games, because he is not yet a Canadian citizen. His
replacement, if necessary, will be Frank Chow.

Kempf's career comes
to end of T-bird line
After a healthy track and field career, big Peter Kempf
has come to the end of the line.
Kempf, 23, a second year edu
cation student, was Vancouver's
top high school track and field
man in 1957 and 1959. Those
two years, he won the high
school track meet's senior boys'
championship, tossing the discus and shot put record distances.
Now, after two years at
Western Washington State College in Bellingham, Kempf has
returned to Vancouver, to catch
passes for the Thunderbird
football team.
Kempf, a husky 6'2", 195 lbs.,
has started at end in UBC's
first three games, and has been
a prime target for quarterback
Barry Carkner's passes.
Peter got started in football
with a juvenile team in Burnaby while he was at high school,
although his main love was
track and field.
After winning the senior aggregate trophy in 1957 for
Burnaby North High, he was
sidelined the next year with a
broken arm.
He returned in 1959 to win
the title again before graduating.
Kempf plans to teach P.E.
after he graduates in two years,
but he's given considerable
thought to playing pro football.
Pete feels he is a little weak
in his blocking, but with the
help of line coach Lorhe Davies,
he is coming closer to correcting the problem.
Says Kempf: "Davies has
helped me more than any other
coach I have ever worked with."
Kempf, who played football
for a year while he was at
Western Washington, says the
big difference between U.S. and
Canadian college football.is the
support given by the students.
"They're way ahead of us
there," he says.
The Birds have the potential
to be a great team this year, he
said, and spirit is tops.
"The only thing we need is
the enthusiastic support of the
students," he said.
