The 10,000 $1,000 scholarships the Liberals promised
before the last election are not a dead issue, Liberal MP
Larry Pennell said Monday.

UBC closed for JFK but not

A student-faculty memorial

the Armory Friday at 1 p.m.
But UBC announced Monday the university will remain
"There is an obvious difference between a young man
who died so unexpectedly in
office and a great leader who
died after a very long and full
career," UBC president John
Macdonald said Monday.

Churchill's death has resulted in the postponement of
a Board of Governors' faculty
reception  Saturday.
A new date for the reception will be announced.
Pennell, parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Finance
Walter Gordon, was speaking
in Bu. 106. He said legislation
on the scholarships had been
held up by the pressure and
priority of other more important matters such as the Canada
Pension Plan.
Pennell said the Liberals had
already guaranteed $20 million
in their successful student loan
Pennell said the scandals in
the Liberal government should
be the concern of any Canadian.
"The majority of Canadian
politicians are honest, dedicated
men," Pennell said, "and the
Canadian public will agree with
me in this."
He listed for the 50-student
audience the Liberal administration's achievements: a balanced budget and expanded
economy, military services integration, and investigations of
tax allocation among provincial
Pennell would not comment
on the fight for leadership in
the Conservative party. "That's

He said he felt the Liberals

election occurred, but he didn't
think there would be one in the
near future.

Medical research
gets huge bequest
Biggest single  grant
for medical  research
A B.C. lumberman has left a $700,000 bequest for medical
research to the planned Health Sciences Center,
gift   is  the  residue  of
The  gift   is
the estate of George Heighway
who died last Nov. 15.
UBC officials said it is the
largest single grant ever given
for medical research at UBC.
It is the second gift from the
Heighway family in five years.
Heighway's wife divided her
$260,000 estate between UBC
and the Canadian Arthritis
and Rheumatism Society in
1961 to train medical students
and for research.
Heighway's grant is to be
used specifically for research
to cure or alleviate a disease
or illness, preferably in the
field of arthritis.
Dean of Medicine John McCreary said Heighway's gift
will overcome a problem that
is difficult for any new medical school: how to obtain funds
for basic research.
"This most generous bequest
will be very helpful indeed,"
said McCreary.
"It supports pioneer aspects
of research for which we must
provide money to get projects
into shape before we can apply
to the Medical Research Council for federal research
The will specifies the grant
be called the Florence and
George Heighway Fund.
Five to handle money
It will be administered by
the UBC Board of Governors.
The will also calls for the
appointment of a five-member
committee consisting of the
president of the university, the
Dean of Medicine, a member
of the medical faculty chosen
by the President and the Dean,
and two businessmen chosen
by the Board of Trade.
The committee will determine from time to time the research that is to be supported
and advanced, the will states.
Heighway said in his will
the money is not to be substituted for grants from other
sources already financing research programs.

UBC's Week of Prayer of
Christian Unity ended Friday
with an ecumenical chuckle as
Father Edward Bader told
some of the inside stories from
the recent Vatican Ecumenical
Father Bader, a Catholic
journalist and guest at the Vatican Ecumenical Council, regaled a Bu. 102 noon-hour audience with accounts of behind-
the-scene doings  such as:
• •    •
The drivers of the buses
which ferried the 2,100 bishops back to their hotels after
each sitting had a daily betting pool on which prelate in
the horde rushing from St.
Peter's would reach the buses
The crowded coffee bars under the council bleachers —
which the bishops called Bar
Jonah, Bar Abbas and Bar
Nun (for nun-delegates only)—
were the only spots in the
world "a priest like me can
push bishops around, literally."
• •    •
■ Los Angeles' conservative
Cardinal Mclntyre was known
among the liberal faction at
Council as The Neanderthal.
Journalists, supposedly barred from Council sessions,
were known to gain admittance as professors of contemporary history.
Individual bishops were
shocked to find themselves nobodies at the Council because
of their vast numbers.
• •    *
This moved a Spanish bishop to complain: "The only
people with any influence
around here are the cardinals
—and the Protestant observers!"
And the same Protestant
observers found themselves in
the position of defending the
Pope to Catholic priests and
bishops at the end of the 1964

"I   made   a   Grey   Cup   bet
vith Peter Calamai, editor-in-
chief of McMaster's paper, The
Silhouette," said Ubyssey editor-in-chief Mike Horsey.
"If the Ti-Cats won we'd
have produced an issue of The
Silhouette on UBC campus,
but since—ah-hem—the Lions
won, the McMaster boys have
to produce an issue of The
Ubyssey for their campus."
Horsey said Ubyssey - style
name-plates, or logos as they
ire called, will be copied by
The Silhouette staff.
"But they can never match
our award-winning style, layout, photographs, or sports department," Horsey added.
Horsey said he did not know
exactly when the McMaster
version of The Ubyssey would
be distributed.
'I received a phone call from
them Monday night which
seemed to indicate they were
working on it," Horsey said.
"But they also seemed a
little drunk."
Horsey said he thought they
were cracking under the strain
of trying to match The Ubys-
sey's bright content.
'They're pretty incompetent," he confided.
The McMaster Silhouette
placed second after The Ubyssey in the recent Canadian University Press Southam Trophy
competition (for general excellence).
Mardi Gras
nets $11,000
UBC fraternities and sororities raised over $11,000 for
muscular dystrophy research.
Mardi-Gras coordinator Robin Lecky said Monday the
UBC Greek Letter Societies

which $11,000 was profit.
The money will be handed
over to Al Simms, President
of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

ments made to The Ubyssey
by food services head, Miss
Ruth Blair. In Friday's Ubyssey, Miss Blair told student
employees they could like
present working conditions or

Muirhead said student employees at first refused to believe the statements made by
Miss Blair. When they phoned
food service personnel, they
were told the statements were
"The attitude expressed by
Miss Blair seems rather an unusual statement to come from
a person in a position of responsibility," Muirhead said.
He said that the employment service doesn't realize
most students working for the
university are doing so out of
"Anyone working in the kitchen for pleasure is crazy,"
Muirhead said.
"I have a loan now. Losing
my job would mean going farther into debt or getting another job."
Muirhead said he didn't
mind losing a few cents a week
because he wasn't being paid
the two hours minimum salary
to which he is entitled by the
Labor Act.
He said most students work
between 90 and 105 minutes
and are paid accordingly.
All students working during
meals are given a free meal.
Students who live in the residences, though, have already
paid for a meal. The meal they
miss would cost them about 90
cents if they had to buy it.
As reimbursement they are
paid $1.21 an hour. Students
who live off campus are paid
only $1.12 an hour.

Conservatiste coalition
makes political history
The Conservatives and the
Creditistes have formed a coalition party to run for UBC's
Model Parliament.
The move was made after
the Creditiste Club's application for membership in Parliamentary Council was rejected'
last week.
"The UBC C o n s e r v afive
Club deplores the fact that the
Creditiste Club will not be
heard in Model Parliament,"
said Tory president Rod MacKenzie.
"Therefore we are going to
take up their cause by combining our campaigns and allocating to them a portion of our
seats in Model Parliament," he
MacKenzie said the Creditistes would receive one-quarter of the Conservative seats.
Model   Parliament   elections
are held Feb. 3, the same time
as first slate AMS elections.

run for three days in March.
A campus political party
must get at least 41 seats in
the 80-seat house to have a
majority government.

Sir Winston Churchill is dead.
We, the young and living, will not
mourn his death as we mourned that of
John F. Kennedy.
There is little to mourn, for Churchill
was a man whose promise was fulfilled.
Churchill was an old man, somehow
ageless; a man who embodied the hope
and youth of another age.
Kennedy was a young Churchill, a man
who had not yet been fitted into the perspective of history.
Youth identified easily with the man
and his ambitions.
Myth and the pedlars of memorabilia
are only now beginning to strangle our
identification with Kennedy.
Churchill gave no chance for the creation of myth, for in his life, he constantly
outdid the mythmakers.
Soldier, journalist, statesman, orator,
painter and brilliant historian — this was
In his private life, his 57-year marriage
to Clementine will surely rank as one of
the great love stories of our time.
This was Churchill.
We cannot mourn this man for he was
a man supremely gifted, a man given
time to use his gifts, and a man set down
in a time when they could be used to
their fullest.
"You were always a difficult man to get held of, Winston."

In duos, trios, and even by
the dozens, colleges and universities from Maine to California are teaming up for
everything from student exchanges and fund raising to

The most common form of
co-operation  is   "campus nop-

In your heart
Editor, The Ubyssey,
What qualifies Hardial
Bains to pass judgment on the
AMS Council and its members? Mr. Bains has never sat
on the AMS nor has he, during my term of office, attended one meeting. Perhaps he is
not up to the hours councillors spend at meetings, working on committees and digesting reams of reports such as
his "Manifesto".
As for his comments about
Mr. Cruise, where does Mr.
Bains get his information?
Is Mr. Cruise a complacent
conservative who desires no
change? On the contrary, he is
the conscientious chairman of
the Constitutional Revisions
Committee and has no less
than twenty changes proposed for the constitution.
A Goldwater? Come off it,
Hardial.   In   your   heart   you
know he's right.
President, Frosh.

Funny paradox
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Funny paradox your recent
Germany article had, there,
Holger Herwig. (Page Friday, Jan. 15). Something
about German nationalism
breaking loose and cripples
answering the military call.
Can't quite follow that.
And that item about Germany's war babies not understanding their predicament;
Ever heard abut the Berlin
wall, Mr. Herwig? That's a
hell of a lesson aid.
Then those "cynical statesmen". You mean men like
Schumann, who said Germany must not re-arm, and
should chart her course without foreign aid? The Bundes-
wehr is an American invention, Mr. Herwig.
And your sarcastic comment about the Bundestag.
Parliament is the bulwark of
democracy, and is slow even
at best of times; witness Ottawa. Besides, I thought Bismarck was dead.
No, Mr. Herwig, your finger slipped off the pulse: you
didn't notice the German rejection of the Bundeswehr;
or the long column of names
of missing persons still published tday, in a hope of returning a brother or a father.
You didn't read the endless
letters to "Der Spiegel",
which refute almost every
sentence of your commentary.
This topic deserves more
research than revealed by
your article.

The lab will soon be open
to students and instructors
will be able to suggest helpful
but voluntary improvements.
A. B. Laithwaite, supervisor
of the new voluntary fitness
program, said this is only part
of the new P.E. program.
(The end of compulsory P.E.
was decreed by UBC's Senate
earlier this term.)
The most important idea the
department wishes to get
across to the students is that
the new program is open to all
interested students, Laithwaite
"Since the change from
compulsory to voluntary fitness program, attendance has
decreased about 50 per cent,"
he said.
"But we wish to emphasize
that all programs are still running and anyone who wants to
attend these classes will probably be able to enter without
any trouble," he said.
The new system will enable
the department to give more
time to P.E. students who now
number over 500, Laithwaite
"It was the physical education department which recommended the voluntary fitness
program to the Senate because
we feel we can also improve
the intramural and extramural
program and perhaps offer
such new programs as mountaineering, fly-casting, shooting and bush camping in the
near future," Laithwaite said.

There's this here guy, named George Reamsbottom.
Then there is this here quality known in the trade as
Any relationship between the former and the latter is, I
assure you, completely accidental.
In this column last week I was taken to task for favoring
UBC's re-entry into Canadian Athletic competition. Mr. Reams-
bottom, the erstwhile editor of these hallowed pages, says he is
unable to understand the reasoning behind my wish to get back
into Canadian competition.
He bases his arguments on several foundations, none of
which represent accurately either the opinions I have expressed
or the facts of the situation.
Point one. At no time have I suggested UBC should re-enter
Canadian competition as it now exists. The cost would be prohibitive. I have constantly held that re-entry is dependent upon
a revamping of the existing scheduling so that UBC teams
would not have to make two swings through the prairies, thus
saving 50 per cent on travel costs.
Further, Mr. Reamsbottom informs us that re-entry into
Canadian competition will cost us an additional $30,000. It
seems that his mathematical ability is nearly as bad as his
ability to write an accurate story. The additional cost would be
about half that, if we go back in on the existing terms. This I
can confidently predict will not happen.
Mr. Reamsbottom goes on to tell us Canadian competition
is no good, uneven, etc. . . . This is the usual garbage we get
from the callow thinkers who forget that it is our hockey team
that has won the Hamber trophy only twice in the last 13 years
or more, and it is the University of Alberta that holds the present Western, and indeed Canadian, intercollegiate football
It is true that we dominate some sports, but then other
schools dominate others. Further it is a well recognized fact
that a team is only as good as its competition. If we take Mr.
Reamsbottom's argument that UBC is the greatest, then surely
if any of the other teams are to improve they should be playing
against us.
It seems to me that a modification in the existing scheduling
would allow us to compete for Canadian league honors and still
play independent games against American competition. I do not
advocate stopping American competition.
Reamsbottom, with his very limited knowledge of the real
problem facing Western Canadian collegiate sports, makes the
mistaken assumption that all the other schools have no
Having just returned from a meeting on the topic of athletics
at which all Western student bodies were represented, I found
that all schools are faced with the same financial squeeze we
are, with the possible exception of Alberta at Edmonton. I
found that the other student bodies and athletic boards were
more than willing to adopt our suggestion for a modification
of the existing scheduling rules. This will be recommended to
the Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Association at its
meeting in May.
I further found that they were willing to accept our suggestion that football not be mandatory for new schools wishing to
enter the conference, thus opening the door for expansion, to
include smaller schools which can't afford football, the one
thing which could result in very substantial savings.
I also found that the other schools were very receptive to
the suggestion that the future of the conference was to split
into a western and eastern division, composed of the B.C. universities and some of the regional colleges, in one division and
the prairie universities and colleges in the other.
There are many more areas in which Mr. Reamsbottom has
yet to even get his feet wet before rushing to the typewriter
to spew additional garbage into print.
In fact I would be pleased to hold instructional seminars
for him and any other interested individuals at any time.

Basketball coach Peter Mullins attributed the poor showing to a "slump". "Every team
has them," said Mullins, "and
we had ours this weekend,
especially Friday."
The UBC plan was originally to speed up a slow and
methodical Viking attack in
the hopes of throwing them off
stride. Instead UBC found
themselves slowed to a walk
and Western did pretty much
as they liked.
The lone bright light for the
Birds was Bob Barazzuol who
