BUMPER-TO-BUMPER, student cars inched along University
Boulevard at 8:15 Monday morning. Cars were backed down
Tenth Avenue 10 blocks east of the University Gates as students drove to first lectures of year. Photo was taken by
picture editor Don Hume from a Thunderbird helicopter
piloted by John King.
Lectures start, cars stop;
it was a black Monday
That's what the traffic and
students were doing Monday
Cars were jammed on all
access roads leading to the university's three main parking
•      *      *
The worst point of congestion was on Tenth Avenue,
where a solid line of traffic extended eight blocks outside the
gates. Once inside the gates,
students didn't fare much better. It took an average of 30 to
40 minutes to get from the gate
to Wesbrook Crescent, less
than two miles.
At the entrance to "C" lot
there was a minor two-car rear-
end collision and in the lot itself, concrete dividers placed
across the road further slowed
A Ubyssey reporter found
that a student on foot could
walk the two blocks from Acadia to WesbrooK faster than the
clogged lanes of traffic were
able to move.
Comments from the frustrated drivers ranged from sarcastic grunts of disapproval to
outright cries of indignation.
"It could be worse—we could
all be dead," said one. "It's a
lousy mess," commented another.
*      •      •
General Sir Ouvry Roberts,
director of university traffic,
is confident that problems will
straighten themselves out.
Much of the congestion was
caused by the fact that students didn't know the routes,
he said.
"Chancellor Blvd. had no
congestion and I'm sure things
will smooth out when people
know  the  easiest  routes,"  he
"Many drivers were stopping
to drop their passengers, which
further added to the congestion," he said.
•      •      •
A specal lane for dropping
passengers may be provided,
he added. No provision has
been made for off-pavement
loading zones.
Many of the signs directing
traffic had been either defaced
or moved by pranksters, but
this had little effect, he said.
Sir Ouvry replaces a Building and Grounds committee as
administrator of campus traffic.
His new department employs
eight commissionaires, who
form a traffic patrol. They will
be replaced by regular Un-
versity employees after a training period has been completed.

Haar wants
to clean up
Point Grey
University student-housing head John Haar wants to clean
house, off campus.
Haar wants to see the University able to  rubber-stamp
approval or disapproval of off-campus accommodation.
"We   should  be  able  to find
out in what kind of place students have to live, and what
they are paying for it," says
But the housing administration has its hands tied by lack
of investigators, Haar says.
Mourns the housing head:
"Only reason we don't have a
system of standards is because
we don't have staff equipped to
do this."
At present, would-be landlords get in touch with the
housing department stenographers. Their names, addresses
and anything they want to say
about the room or rooms are
put on either the men's or women's master sheet of prospects.
This telephone call is the
landlord's only brush with the

"So, right now, we don't assume any_responsibility for students going to these places.
"We don't have any responsibility for landlord-tenant troubles either," explains the housing head.
On-campus housing is something  that's  growing more  cri
tical every year through sheer
The reason the housing department had to turn down 600
male students and 300 female
students for the residence is
simply that the student body has
outgrown present accommodations on campus.
"Our problem is we have a
static amount of accommodation
and an increasing enrolment,"
says Haar.
More housing, on campus, is
what Haar wants.
Off campus, he just wants
better housing.

A game of financial footsy
The students, in the latest move in byplay
surrounding the winter sports arena, have told
University officials that two can play the same
The student council's decision to apply
$75,000 it may receive from the winter works
program to the student's $250,000 commitment
to the hockey-curling complex, is in part retaliation to the University's handling of the
Molson gift to the centre last spring.
At that time, students dealing with the
proposed arena were angered by an administration decision to make Molson's $100,000
gift part of the University's $250,000 commitment.
The students had hoped that the gift would
be added to total monies allotted to the arena
and everyone would benefit with a $600,000
But such was not the case.
So, when confronted with the winter works
money students quickly recognized as a chance
to reverse the situation.
ihe loser, of course, when all the wrangling is finished, will be the building.
Without the current financial finagling, the
University could have had a $675,000 building
—with $250,000 each from the AMS and Administration; $100,000 from Molson, and $75,-
000 from Winter Works.
But the student council is satisfied now that
it can build an adequate—not the best—but
an adequate building for $500,000.
So much so, that it would see the $75,000
from Winter Works made part of the AMS
grant, add $75,000 to Student Union money,
and at the same time let the administration
know how it felt about the handling of the
Molson money. «
The effect of the students' action is to impress upon the administration and governors
that unless the students are dealt with fairly,
the supply of money from the students—and it
is sizeable—may not be so readily available.

Already we must expose those who threaten

ideally, are made.
In this case it is the rather unlikely combination of the National Federation of Canadian University Students and some advertising
The issue: Birdcalls.
You see, the NFCUS people at a recent
convention ridiculed Birdcalls. They attacked
the name. They tore it apart. They claimed
it was childish. Worse, they branded it higjh-
Birdcalls, they said, just isn't the type of
name you hang on a student telephone direc
tory. After all, nobody else does.
Then an advertising man said that if you
want to sell anything, it has to be identifiable
by its name. If it's a student telephone directory, call it that.
And they have. Student Telephone Directory, indeed.
This was hard for us to take. We, who side

Should be esthetic
Utilitarian buildings are out on campus
University of Alberta, Calgary
This is an age in which the
university has assumed a savior-like role. Never before in
human history lias mankind attached so great an importance
to education. It has become
the answer to the struggles of
underdeveloped nations, and
essence of parental ambition.
This is also the machine age
in which, in the interests of efficiency, quality takes second
billing to quantity. This is an
age in which an admirably zealous mankind has mistakenly
applied the efficient laws of
economics to education, and
more particularly to the university.
Translated into the current
university picture, efficiency
means lower standards, multiple choice examinations, overcrowded classrooms and an almost complete disregard for
The esthetic anemia is presently most effectively reflected in the over emphasis
placed on the utilitarian aspects of university architecture.
There is no way of accurately measuring the importance
of esthetics as regards the development of the student. It
seems evident, however, that
amid the humdrum assembly
line educational program which
has replaced the more individualistic discipline of former
years, attention must be given
to the more human aspects of
student development.
Humans are, at least in
part, emotional creatures, and
an educational system that
fails to allow for emotional maturation  is  sadly inadequate.
The university should not be
a factory for minds.
The degree should not be
solely the product of examinations.
The university must be an
environment for the stimulation and development of the
student, not necessarily only
of the particular discipline in
which he trains. This is not to
say that the university should
completely disregard the rational in favor of the irra-
tionaJ, but that a compromise
should be found and maintained.
Architecture must be a deciding factor in the creation of
this environment. Edward Dur-
rell Stone, noted American
architect, in an article "The
Case for Modern Architecture
On The Campus," published in
April 1960, has this to say:
"Architecture, when well done,
can create a mood and inspiration. It has done so through
the ages. So it is with a college
building: here you can create
an atmosphere which is conducive to study and to work,
and which produces a rapport between teacher and student."
Some universities have recognized the importance of
architectural esthetics. In 1938
Florida Southern College commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright
to design its campus. The plan
of the campus is open and in
formal. The buildings, white,
compact and hugging the
ground, are of concrete blocks.
All are linked by covered
walks. There is everywhere the
element of surprise; of opening vistas and intimate closed
spaces. The administrators and
the architect have recognized
that the external appearance
of the buildings as well as
their internal layout, their relationship one with another,
the spaces between the, landscaping, planting, color, and
furnishings are as important in
the cultural development of
the student as up-to-date laboratory equipment and clean
"I have seen a new spirit
and a new attitude in the student body and the faculty,"
said Dr. Spivey, president of
the university. "It took a little
time for the buildings to make
an impact, but one soon found
a new stirring of minds all
over  the campus"
The role of the university
today is two fold: that of enriching its own scholarly resources and widening its public commitments by providing
a home for the human scholar,
the scientist and the artist,
and also that of providing the
kind of milieu that is no longer open to these men in a great
metropolis, where the higher
life so often starves in the
midst of sterile abundance.

"We shape our buildings, but

Hooligans smash
Brock hall windows
A car load of vandals smashed a window at the front of
Brock Hall early Saturday morning.
Damages were estimated at $20 by Buildings and Grounds
officials. They said one of the long windows containing 24.small
panes of glass had been cleaned out.
The University RCMP detach-
ment is currently investigating.
Malcolm Scott, AMS treasurer, and assistant Dave Pegg,
were at the AMS office at Brock
Hall, Saturday. At 12:30 a.m.
they heard two noises at the
front of the building.
They raced to the north foyer
and saw the broken window. A
car out front quickly moved off,
then was met by another car at
the rear of the Library.
Occupants of both cars appeared to converse, Scott said,
while a third vehicle containing
six noisy celebrants cruised in
the immediate vicinity.
Scott recorded all three licence numbers and turned them
over to the RCMP for investigation.
''I think it's the worst kind of
hooliganism," Scott said. He says
he will personally press charges.
No names have been released
by the RCMP or AMS. An
RCMP spokeman said Monday
that four, or possibly more young
men in their late teens and early
twenties, will face charges of
wilfully causing damage.
Some of those involved were
definitely identified as UBC students. It is not known if the
vandals had been drinking.
Library gets
collection of
Burns' books
An outstanding collection of
books about Scottish poet Robert
Burns has been presented to the
UBC library n honour of retiring president, Dr. N. A. M. MacKenzie.
Built up over 28 years by the
late A. M. Donaldson of Vancouver, the collection of 1500 items
contains almost all editions of
Burns' poems and letters, and
other  Scottish works.
Valued because of rare bindings, as well as critical and biographical material, the collection will prove useful to undergraduate students, and advanced
students studying literature, bibliography, and musicology, says
Dr. Samuel Rothstein, UBC's
acting librarian.
The gift will be the third major collection of books presented since 1958, when a 20,000-
volume collection of Canadiana
was acquired from the estate of
Thomas Murray of Montreal.
NFCUS behind scenes
helping student welfare
There are scores of sets of
initials at UBC. And NFCUS is
one of them.
It stands for National Federation of Canadian University
Most Canadian university students are members of the federation, founded in 1926 to lobby for legislation in the interests of students and help to unify students across the country.
Thanks to the efforts of
NFCUS, Canadian university
students now are allowed to deduct fees from their income
tax. To UBC students this meant
more than $500,000 in tax exemptions last year, says Mary-
Lee Magee, chairman of the local NFCUS committee.
"But NFCUS shouldn't be
judged only on its ability to produce concrete financial benefits," said Miss Magee.
"We try to break down Can-

ada's geographic and ethnic barriers by providing a natural
program of student activities at
the university level."
One of the highlights of the
program is a scheme whereby
students are enabled to study
away from their own universities.
The International Scholarship
Exchange program, started in
1927, allows four students from
UBC to select and study for a
year at almost any other university in Canada and to do so at
low cost.
"Our hope is that students
will develop greater insight into
and better understanding of
other Canadians and their ways
of life," Miss Magee said.
NFCUS has also been responsible for founding:
• A travel department Nvhich
obtains reduced fares for students travelling at home and
• An annual seminar which
brings together students, professors, novelists and politicians
from every part of Canada to
discuss topical problems;
• The Canadian University
Press to which most campus
newspapers belong, helping
spread campus news across Canada;
• the Canadian University
Debating Association, which presents an award each year to the
best debating team from 36
universities in Canada.
A variety of services, such as
literary and photo contests, are
also offered.
New degrees
Courses leading to the master's
degree in engineering science,
mathematics and computing will
be offered in 1962 by the University of Western Ontario.

New Education building
has everything, even TV
Education students will be
treated to Canada's first educational peep show this year.
They will peep into specially
-wired cla.ssrooms in two city
schools via the country's first
closed circuit classroom television network.
The gleaming new Education
building at the corner of University Boulevard and the Main
Mall has two closed circuit television outlets in 10 of its 13
The show will be premiered
-this February.
Students will see classes being taught by expert teachers in
Queen Mary elementary and
Kitsilano secondary schools.
In past students have travelled to schools with faculty
members to observe teaching
methods in the classroom.
Dean Neville Scarfe of the
Faculty of Education said the
system will save 600 hours in
travelling for faculty, and away
more for students.
Workmen are still putting
the finishing touches on the $1.1
million building, which is already being used by 2600 education students.
The 'touches' include streamlined bucket seats in some of
the rooms where chairs are
temporary substitutes.
The common room, which
seats 250, is also without seats,
as is the downstairs cafeteria.
But Dean Scarfe said classes
would not be disrupted when
permanent furnishings arrived
"in about two weeks."
Student   Council   offices   are
as yet literally a hole in a basement wall and the registrar's
office is knee deep in sawdust.
Even so students have it better than faculty members who
will have to hike over from
their offices in the huts behind
the Administration building until the new staff block opens in
about 18 months.
Two other additions to the
building will be completed
about  the same time.
Television facilities are likely
to expand in the next few years.
Said Dean Scarfe: "We might
even film specially good lectures to show students in other
classes or at other times."
"President Macdonald is-interested in extending this idea
to say Eng. 100, for instance.
The University might also establish an outlet to the general
public for home instruction."

Car registration
period extended
Parking registration has
been extended until the end
of the week, traffic department officials announced Monday.
Only about 4,000 registrations have been recorded—
far below the anticipated number.
The $5 fee now paid by
students goes toward the expense of running the new traffic program.
Hundreds of students turned
up  Monday  without   stickers
and were sandwiched into lots
according   to   the   route  they
used to reach the campus.

USC antiquated':
must be rejuvenated
Ubyssey Council Reporter
The Undergraduate Societies
Committee, close to oblivion
since a new system of student
government was instituted two
years ago, may have been given
new life.
The committee was weakened
when faculty presidents became
members of student council instead of being represented
through the  USC chairman.
But a report to student council recommends that USC be retained and given greater powers. USC is made up of faculty
representatives elected by each
undergraduate society. It deals
with interfaculty problems.
Recommendations by last
year's USC chairman Darrell
Roberts that the • committee was
"antiquated" and should be abolished were investigated this
summer by a special AMS committee.
Contrary to Robert's conclusion, the investigators decided
USC should remain and be
given expanded powers.
The committee argued that
some other group would have
to handle USC's duties if it was
USC in its present representative form serves as a training
ground for future student councillors, the report said.
It added "that council could
look to this body to encourage
students from all faculties to
serve on AMS committees."
The committee recommended
USC be given the entire total of
undergraduate society grants to
divide among the societies.
Homecoming, Frosh Orientation, Leadership and High School
Conference should come under
USC administration,  it said.
The moves are designed to
strengthen areas of student
government needing representative opinion, and to reduce
council's workload.
Engineers to have
building by 1963
A $1,220,507 contract for
construction of a new building
for the department of electrical
engineering has been awarded
to John Laingand Son (Canada)
Construction will start immediately on the four-storey,
L-shaped building at the corner
of Agronomy Road and Main
Mall. Expected completion date
is August, 1963.
The building will contain
75,000 square feet of floor space
and include lecture rooms and
laboratories for undergraduate
teaching and advanced research.
It will be the second unit to
be constructed on a 15-acre site
at the south end of the campus
for the faculty of applied
science. The first unit of the development, a building for the
department of chemical engineering, was opened last September.

Winter works grant
boosts arena plans
Ubyssey Council Reporter
The proposed winter sports arena has a site, plans and the
possibility of a $75,000 grant from the winter works program—
a complete reversal of last week's position
Acreage beyond C-lot has been
approved for the building which
is now to be patterned on a winter arena at Esquimalt.
An unusual agreement whereby the Alma Mater Society will
lease the arena which only a
week ago seemed doomed to be
scrapped from the University
will make it possible to obtain
a federal winter works grant
which could amount to $75,000.
Last week the arena had no
definite site or plans and was
plagued by money problems.
The new building will cost
$500,000 as compared to $1V4
planned as compared to $lJ/4
million estimated for the lavish
original layout.
. The only major modifications
in the plans for the barrel-roofed Esquimalt building are extensions in the size of the team
rooms and washrooms.
In other respects the building
equals or exceeds the original
specifications for an Olympic-
sized hockey rink, six curling
sheets and seating for 1,000.
The new site at the intersec-
Frosh to suggest
symposium topics
Frosh will choose their own
discussion topics for this year's
Frosh Symposium.
Chairman Peter Penz said
topics will be taken'from suggestions made by students on
their application forms.
Application forms for the
symposium, which features discussion with members of the
faculty and senior students, may
be obtained at the AMS office
in Brock Hall,
i Deadline for applications is
noon Saturday.
; The symposium begins with a
buffet dinner at 5 p.m. Oct. 2
and ends '5x/£ hours later.
Enrolment up
Part-time enrolment in credit
courses at 26 universities was
40 percent higher in 1958-59
than in 1957-58.
tion of imagined extensions of
Wesbrook Crescent and 10th
Avenue is well away from a
planned chemistry and physics
complex which complicated the
previous one.
Student Council has approved
the site and plans.
The University must still obtain approval from the provincial
government to be able to lease
the arena site to the AMS.
IH invites clubs

The United' Nations Club, The
World University Service, and
the Canadian University Service Overseas have been invited
to move into International
Representatives of the clubs
will meet at IH this week to
discuss the proposal.
A welcome party for new foreign students at UBC held at
International House Friday night
was attended by about 200 students from all over the world.
The program included Canadian
folk-singing, Chinese dancing,
and a drums selection. Said director Art Sager: "Everyone
seemed to enjoy themselves."
Continuing the orientation
.program for the new foreign
students, a reception and tea
will be held at International
House Sunday.
The International Booth will
also be open on Clubs Day this
week to welcome any other
students who wish to join the
Association,  Sager said.
Enrolment up  13%
Full-time university-grade enrolment in Canadian universities
and colleges at December 1, 1961
was 128,894, an increase of 13.1
percent over the 114,000 enrolled
in 1960-61, according to an advance release by the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics (DBS Daily
Bulletin, February 14).

Ivy League
finished sixth in Lucerne, need
$2,000 for their trip to the BEG
this November.
Before the Lucerne expedition, UBC asked the Canadian
Government for $15,000 to cover
the cost of both trips. They received only $10,000.
The provincial government
added $3,000 dollars, but this
still left the kitty $2,000 short.
It was decided to go ahead
with the trip to the World
Championships anyway, and
hope that the extra money
could be found when the team
returned  home.
A fund raising drive will be
held on campus to send the
crew to Australia.
The Thunderbird eights, who
this summer set a world record
for 2,000 meters while training
for the Lucerne trip, are rated
as one of the teams to beat in
the BEG.
Rowing in a borrowed shell,
they defeated Australia during
their heat in Switzerland, but
finished behind them in the finals. The Aussies were the only
British Commonwealth team to
defeat the Thunderbirds.
UBC's lack of experience in
international competition hurt
them in the finals at Lucerne.
Faced with a crowd of approxi
mately 45,000, the Birds began
to realize just how far they had
come from early morning practices on Coal Harbour.
As a result they found they
could not get organized during
the race. They finished sixth
(and last), ten seconds behind
the winning German crew.
Permission needed
to participate
Any students wishing to participate for non-university teams
must first report to the university athletic office for permission.
This new ruling was made in
an attempt to halt the mass exodus of students to city teams,
which has in recent years reached refugee proportions.
It is hoped that the coaches
will be able to learn the reasons
that so many student athletes
prefer playing on non-university
Any students who do not comply with this new regulation
will not be permitted to play
on any university team, and
they may be brought before the
appropriate university authority
for disciplinary action.
