Gates downed at last
Deputy minister
orders removal
The University Boulevard Main Gates are being torn
down after decades of protest.
E. W. Bassett, deputy minister of lands, gave the order
to tear down the University
Boulevard gates Monday, after
agitation going back to 1926
when the gates were built.
Bassett visited the university
and decided the gates had to
be disassembled to allow the
widening of Blanca Street and
the extension of Sixteenth Avenue.
The new Sixteenth Avenue
route will pass south of Acadia
Camp and join Marine Drive,
says the provincial Department of Lands and Forests.
Traffic Director Sir Ouvry
Roberts said the new entrance,
the university's fourth, would
speed traffic into B and C lots.
Senior clerk of the endowment lands office, R. P. Murdoch said: "The stones from
the gates are being stored pending decision."
Workmen estimate disassembling will take two days.
"No replacement has been
decided or where it will be
placed or what design it will
take," Murdoch said.
The main problem in the removal was limitations of jurisdiction. No oner could remove
the gates without permission
from Victoria.

were going to blow up the
gates earlier this year. They
said they hoped the publicity
would create an order for the

Lands administrator M. E. Ferguson said the combination of
the removal of the gates and
the new Sixteenth Avenue
route would so've many of
UBC's access problems.

Admits Norris
'Asked for raises'
Faculty association president Dr. John Norris threw little
light on faculty requests for salary hikes Monday—he said
the faculty has made submissions concerning salaries to the
Last week Dr. Norris called
inaccurate statements reported
in The Ubyssey outlining a request of the faculty association
for salary hikes of $2,000 and
administration counter-offers
of $800.
Dr. Norris at that time declined to specify the inaccuracies as he said this would give
the correct details away.
Following hints from Education minister Les Peterson
Wednesday night of a  likely
faculty salary hike, Dr. Norris
promised a statement following a meeting with his executive.
His statement Monday:
"The faculty association executive made an official submission concerning salaries for

Arts bleed most
as drive dries up
The Vancouver Red Cross left campus Friday with 2,733
pints of blood tucked safely away in their little bottles.
(Continued from Page 1)
However,   Red   Cross
ials  were   less   than  satisfied
with the second installment of
their bi-annual drip.
Assistant Director of Blood
Service — for the lower mainland— Johnny Rousseau said:
"I think we feU short of the
desired 3,000 pints because
many students didn't know the
drive was on for a second
'^But if we could get the
same response in the lower
mainland as we got from UBC
we would have more blood
than we need."
Champion bleeders were
Artsmen with a total donation
of 740 pints.
Donations from other faculties were as follows:

"Additional copies of this
submission were given to the
secretary of the Board of Governors for circulation to members of the Board at a meeting
of the executive with the
Board on Nov. 3, 1964.
"Four resolutions passed by
the faculty association at a
special meeting on Feb. 4,
which supplemented the original submission, were transmitted to the president and to the

Several students expressed
concern last year when the
fire department was unable to
reach a student stranded on
the library roof.
"Our equipment has not
changed since the incident,
said Rowland.
Since the library incident
there have been several taller
buildings erected on campus
including Totem Park residences.
Rowland said: "Totem Park
residences contain two separate, self—enclosed staircases
which are an adequate safety
factor under the building regulations.
"First aid equipment and
individual fire extinguishers
are located inside the building."

30 years wordy buffeting

Controversy about the University gates and the proposed

for 30 years.

Two members of the Geography Department labelled as

"The original plans for the
university called for 16th Avenue to extend clean through
Acadia Camp. Look at it now.

MARCH 22, 1962:
The University's sub-committee on parking attempted to
elimin ate bottle-neck approaches to campus.
The creation of new exits
and entrances has been under
discussion for ten years.
The extension of Sixteenth
and Twenty-fifth was proposed.
The chairman of the University planning committee said he
believed one of the roads
would be put through in the
near future.
SEPTEMBER 21, 1962:
Cars were jammed on all access roads.
A  solid  line  of traffic extended eight blocks outside the

"The university's gates
should be moved because they

triffic chief, Sir Ouvry Roberts.

There is nothing lef tof the Second World War bitterness
between France and Germany according to a University of
Paris professor.
"Traffic southbound on
Blanca hasn't a chance.
"If you make it past the
stream of cars flowing west into the university, chances are
you'll be clobbered by the outflowing stream coming from
the University."
FEBRUARY 4, 1964:
An overturned Austin and
orange smoke were deliberately placed at the university
gates, in a Science Undergraduate Society stunt.
A student came over to ask
if there were any foodies, a police car came racing to the
scene, and a bus driver blocked
traffic by stopping to look at
the accident scene.
The sciencemen were trying
to point out the likelihood of
an accident at that corner.
FEB 6, 1964:
Sir Ouvry Roberts spoke to
students in the Last Lecture
"I would like to forget about
parking," he said.
"The only interest I have in
parking is where St. Peter is
going to park me when I get
to the gates."

Chemical dregs
in super-filling
A UBC professor has turned a chemical leftover into a
new super-hard filling for teeth.
The    filling,    much    harder
than regular tooth enamel,
can also be used as a special
outer coating to protect teeth
from decay.
"It is so hard it will wear
down a carbon-steel drill
bore," said its inventor Dr.
Richard Roydhouse, assistant
professor of restorative dentistry.
"The substance, being sold
under the name of Addent, is
made of an organic binder
vhich is a blend of liquid
vinyl-type co-monomers capable of becoming highly cross-
"An added filler gives the
material a white translucent
appearance, blending in completely with the teeth," he
Addent is not yet commercially available in Canada.
Dr. Roydhouse became interested in developing a better type of filling while working in Rochester, New York
in 1960.
"I went around to a dozen
big chemical companies looking for a substance that would
stick to teeth," he said.
"Addent developed from
one of them."
Dr. Roydhouse, who came
to UBC in 1963, is presently
testing an improved version
of the filling with local dentists.

UBC director of Housing
John Haar has confirmed he
will take a year's leave of absence to work in Ontario.
He said: "I expect to be
away a year, leaving sometime
this spring."
Haar will take up the post
as director of a new Elliott
Lake Ontario continuing education centre.
The new centre was an-
ounced Feb. 3, as a joint project of the Ontario Department of Education and Federal Department of Labor.
It will provide adults with
courses in fine and performing arts, management, technology and labor education.
Professor Alfred Grosser
said in a speech in Bu. 2239
on De Gaulle's Foreign Policy
that since 1949 French nationalism has been redirected into
broader channels. This was necessary due to the autonomy given possessions in Africa.
He said, "The new generation growing up in France
knows nothing of the struggle
of the Second World War and
has only love for the Germans.
"Adenauer looks on De
Gaulle like a young lover
looks at his girl and De Gaulle
enjoys being admired by a
man like Adenauer."
"When a diplomat goes from
Germany to England he is met
coolly but when he goes to Paris he is met warmly," Grosser
"The feeling extends in both
directions. When De Gaulle
went to Germany the journalists reported De Gaulle
came to Germany as the Prime
Minister of France and left as
the Emperor of Europe."

Duh-er- gates
Life at UBC isn't going to be the same without those
blasted gates on University Boulevard.
Gone are the near-accidents; official waffling on the
fate of the gates; offensive Ubyssey editorials; threats
to blow them up and the endless list of complaints they
Without the gates bleary-eyed commuters will have
nothing on which to focus their Monday-morning hate.
Ever since they first appeared the gates have been
a universally hated aspect of UBC life. Literally tens
of thousands of words have been foisted on the deaf
ears of various government departments, UBC administrations and civic officials.
Significantly, nothing happened.
There were always too many problems. Officials
feared that once the okay for removal had been given,
it would cost up to $10,000 to remove them. Where
would we store them? Could we do it and not offend
the original intention (whatever that was) of the gates.
In the end all it took to remove the gates was a
little pragmatism.
Pragmatism which read to some engineer. "Duh, we
can't have the gates there, duh-er-duh, they'll be in
the middle of a widened Blanca street."
To which we suggest — "duh-er-duh, how about
widening Blanca so it runs over the bookstore."
Archaic laws
UBC's fledgling Demographic Society can take heart
at news from Sheffield, England.
The health service at Sheffield university is issuing
birth control pills in an effort to cut down illegitimate
births among students.
The measure was taken following disclosure that 12
of Sheffield's 700 co-eds produced bastards last year.
It will be a long time before health services at
Canadian universities start issuing the implements of
birth control.
The ludicrous manner in which UBC coeds are
separated from men in residences indicates that the
day may never come.
The methods of keeping young men and women
apart at UBC are as archaic and hopelessly futile as
Canadian birth control laws.
Children are born out of wedlock at UBC. How
many? If figures are available no one is saying. Try 20.
That's not counting the "we-have-to-get-married" category.
Surely we do not have illegitimate children a la the
Sheffield rate. That would mean about 85 a year.
Of our illegitimate children how many could have
been prevented if the proper birth control information
was available?
How many more if the implements of birth control
equally available?

Hillel harangue
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Ron Appleton, president of
Hillel House is quoted as saying, "We need Jewish contacts because it doesn't look
as though anti-Semitism will
ever completely disappear."
and, "We feel more at home
among Jewish people." When
are he and his crowd going to
realize that they are creating this anti-Semitism by
thinking of themselves as different from the rest of us and
by s e p a r a ti n g themselves
from us?
If you act as though you
were different, Mr. Appleton,
we are going to believe you
really are different, and because we don't know you, we
will distrust you. Then, when
we are looking for a scapegoat on which to blame our
difficulties, you will be the
obvious choice.
Your religion and your cultural heritage are valuable,
Mr. Appleton. But at the university, you should be learning to express your own individuality and not losing
yourself in your Jewishness
by spending your time in
Hillel. Why don't you come
out and show the rest of us
who you are, as a person.

Dentistry drills on
Tenders have been let for
UBC's new $4 million three-
storey Faculty of Dentistry
building to be situated on
Wesbrook Crescent Dean S.
W. Leung told The Ubyssey
A contractor will be selected in early March and construction will begin in April!
"The project will be completed in time for students
entering the faculty in the
1966 fall session," said Dr.
The money for the new
building is part of the provincial government's annual
captital grant to the university.
• •   •
The Dentistry faculty opened last September with seven students.
UBC's dental school is the
seventh in Canada and the
third in the Western provinces.
Entrance requirements are
a 65 per cent average, the
first three years of a bachelor's program and several
required courses.
"There is presently no test
for manual dexterity but the
Canadian Dental Association
has been investigating the
possibility of instituting a
physical aptitude test for
prospective students," said
Dr. Leung.
The degree granted for the
course is the Doctor of Dental Medicine, DMD.
"The building is not essential this year because most of
the first two years of the
four-year course consists of
science courses taken with
Medicine students," said Dr.
The small amount of dental pre-clinical work is now
done in the dentistry hut adjacent to the B.C. Research
Council building.
The new building will be
equipped with one dental
chair for every third and
fourth year  student.
• •    •
"But present facilities will
foe adequate for next year's
first and second year
classes," said Dr. Leung.
A school of dental hygiene
is planned two to three years
after the building is completed.
Dr. Leung said 65 students applied for the course
last year, although only 20
were eligible.
Forty-five students have
applied so far this year.
"We will hopefully take a
first year class of 40 students
in the new building in 1966,"
said Dr. Leung, "and we will
. . . ready next year
definitely have 40 by 1967.
"We will permit out of
province students because no
Canadian dental college has
an in-province entry stipulation."
Dr. Leung said UBC's dentistry faculty will be a progressive one.
"The new building will be
equipped with the newest
high-speed drills and other
modern equipment and the
teaching methods and content will be oriented to the
most up-to-date knowledge,"
said Dr. Leung.
"It will have moveable
equipment, such as mobile
dental chairs, so that we can
continually dispense with old
equipment at a minimum of

"We are presently evaluating new equipment to see
which types will stand up to
use by students," he said.
Students and faculty may
be able to cut their dental
expenses by being guinea
pigs for dentistry students,
Dr. Leung said.
He said he is considering
a system where patients will
pay only the cost of materials.
Dr. Leung said there is a
great need for more dentists
in Canada.
He said there is only one
dentist for every 3,000 persons in Canada.
The American national average is one dentist for every
1,700 persons.
"B.C. and Ontario are better supplied than the rest of
Canada with one dentist for
every 2,400 persons," said
Dr. Leung.
The profession is a lucrative one for  Canadian  den
tists have an average income
of $14,000 - $15,000 a year.
"All our students have
scholarship or bursary assistance," said Dr. Leung.
"We have also been promised assistance from the dental fraternity, Alpha Omega,
and the College of Dental
surgeons," he said.
• •   •
Graduates   of   UBC    may
receive special treatment if
they practice in the province.
At present, all dentists
wishing to work in B.C. must
pass ah entrance exam set by
the B.C. College of Dental
"Graduates of UBC will
have to qualify, but they may
not have to take the exam,"
said Dr. Leung.
"The Canadian Dental Association has appointed a
commission to investigate the
possibility of allowing the
dental schools to license their
grads for the province," he

Dr. Leung was hired by
UBC in 1962 and has worked

all stages of planning for the
new building.
He was formerly a professor of physiology at Rochester University where he took

The eight members of his
faculty are now engaged in
planning facilities for the
new building and researching and teaching in the faculty of medicine.

Council makes up
after week strike
TORONTO (CUP) — A week-old student council strike
at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute has ended as the council
and administration joined hands over a new student body-
approved constitution.
In a joint statement last
week the council and administration said they were in complete agreement on the new
students' council constitution.
The statement marked the
end of a dispute sparked when
the administration suspended
council's disciplinary powers
following the January death
of journalism student Thomas
S. Dasovich, killed in a car
crash following a fraternity
beer-drinking  contest.
A grievance committee at
| Ryerson is investigating the
j case of a student reported who
alleged he was fired from the
campus newspaper for giving
a story on the death to a Toronto daily newspaper after it
had been rejected by a Ryerson editor.
Former special reports editor Ross Harvey said his dismissal resulted from a story
he wrote linking the death of
Dasovich to the beer-drinking
The student paper printed
only an obituary following the
Jan. 23 accident.

Who says
alums dont
have pull?
One of the most important spheres of interest
of the Alumni Association is in the administration of the University.
Alumni appoint members to the Senate, the
university's a c a d e|m i c
body, and the Senate in
turn appoints members
to the Board of Governors, UBC's ruling council.
• •    •
Six members of the
present Board are alums,
and now nearly 500 faculty members are UBC
The Alumni Association's Board of Management appoints three members to the Senate. Convocation, made up mainly
of all graduates, elect 15
of their number to Senate.
Three members of Senate are then named to the
Board of Governors, and
since the 95 Faculty
members are ineligible to
serve on the Board, those
elected are almost always alumni.
The three Senate reps
on the Board now are Mr.
Justice Nathan Nemetz
and Donovan Miller, both
past presidents of the Alumni Association, and
publisher Stuart Keate,
one of the convocation
members of Senate.
• •   •
Three   other   members
of the 11-man Board are
UBC graduates: Chancellor Phyllis Ross, lawyer
Arthur Fouks, and
forestry executive John
The Chancellor is elected every three years by
Convocation — comprised
mainly of UBC's 26,500
graduates, plus faculty
members named by the
It all means the average graduate has a lot to
say about the way the
university is run and who
will run it.
In Washington and Oregon, alumni of the State
Universities not only occupy many university
positions—but also many
are members of the state
legislatures, a position
where they can actively
and effectively work for
the university's benefit.
• •   •
"We're    working    into
these areas more each
year," says UBC Alumni
Director Tim Hollick-
Kenyon. "In the future,
more alumni will be taking a greater role in administration of UBC."
The association keeps
in touch with members
across Canada with mailings, reunions and
dances in other provinces, and speaking engagements by University
President Dr. John Macdonald in the B.C. interior and eastern Canada.

Besides pickpockets
Lots going on
The UBC Alumni Association, contrary to popular belief,
is not made up of professional pickpockets hired to prey
upon the graduate once he's paid off all the debts he incurred as an undergraduate, thereby keeping UBC types
perpetually in debt.
Nor do they hold student
banquets just to ply unsuspecting students with food and
drink, thereby subtly converting said victims to some sinister purpose.
• •   •
The    Alumni    Association,
says Director Tim Hollick-
Kenyon, works for the University's—and for the student's—benefit.
"The Alumni Association is
here to serve the University,"
said Hollick-Kenyon, "t h e
faculty, administration and
the students.
• •   •
"The alumni are sort of the
fourth member of the family.
If there are any ways we can
help the students, we're more
than glad to do so."
He said much of the association's work on behalf of the
university is of indirect benefit to the students.
"But a lot of this work is
done outside the students'
range and they never hear
about it."
He cited the association's
campaign to send information
on the needs of higher education to provincial MLAs before they came to Victoria for
the present sitting, and following it up with MLA Day,
an informal tour of the campus last month for the members.
• •    •
"The better-informed the
members are, the better deal
UBC is going to get. We don't
try to high-pressure anybody,
we just let them know what's
going on."
Thursday's banquet is only
one of the association's activities in the student sphere, designed to give students a
chance to find out how the
organization works and to
talk to alumni.
The alumni's student activities also include:
Scholarships: 42 entrance
scholarships of $350 each, to
bring a top student from each
provincial riding to UBC.
Winners are selected by the
local screening committees of
the association.

Emergencies: When the new
Totem Park residences
weren't open as scheduled
this fall, the association secured 200 billets from grads living in the Point Grey area.
Facilities: student organizations often use Alumni office
equipment to produce reports
and handle conferences. High
School Conference has worked with the alumni for several
years now, and the office each
year assists the grad class
with their graduation ball.

and wisdom from the old boys
Alumni aren't always grey-
haired old fogeys who won't
give you a job. Some of them,
like Dave Brock, know enough about students to save
you a buck and maybe get
you a degree . . .
My little dears:
In the next four years or
more, you should try to discover which rules are better
kept and which are better
broken. A campus is a terrible
place for rules, and gets worse
all the time. Some are devised
and enforced in so malevolent
a fashion, they seem the work
of the Traffic & Parking
Still, the outside world is
very like this, also, and perhaps the campus serves to
break you in.
• •   •
Thirty years ago, few firms
or individuals would hire a
man with a B.A. To get a job
with them you had to lie, and
say you had never gone to college. The universities have
done a fine job in killing that
prejudice but they have overdone it.
If you, because of your new
skill in the art of persuasion,
learnt at the feet of your professors of rhetoric, can persuade the world of commerce
that there are many useful
and brainy men without a degree to their names, and many
really retarded idiots with a
B.A., overcrowding on the
campus would cease to-morrow, or even late this afternoon.
• •   •
When you are with your
friends and acquaintances,
they are doing no work. You
then deduce they never do
any work while alone. They
foster this illusion to promote
a myth about their clever
ways of outwitting the examiners. They boast to you
about the well-rounded benefits of la vie de Boheme. Do
not believe or imitate them.
They are lying. They are
studying in secret. At the examination they will pass and
you will fail.
You can identify a male
poet only by where he sits in
the old cafeteria, but you can
tell a female one anywhere
(in 1964) by her white jeans.
Every professor, like every
student, thinks himself more
sensitive than the rest. Read
Keats' warning against being
too sensitive. Or watch wood-
lice dying in the sun; what's
so good about that? In Oxfordshire, woodlice were
known as God Almighty's
pigs. Be as tolerant as you
can of the arty boys, in case
they too are God Almighty's
• •    •
Most professors are very
keen on tolerance. Except of
each other, for they are as
jealous as chorus girls. To be
tolerant of the tolerable is
quite right. To be tolerant of
the intolerable, however, had
better be left to saints and
crooked mayors and people
like that.
One of the funniest things
about education is the notion
that you are obliged to have
opinions on everything, including subjects on which
only a lunatic would dare to
have any opinion at all.
The answer to most questions is "I don't know". This
is the most scientific thing
that you or even an expert
can possibly say.
If you think every problem
has an answer, it means four
things: it means you are a
child of this age, over-educated, and in for a lot of surprises. It also means you are
stating the problems wrong.
A real prophet is usually
about 400 years ahead of his
time. It is therefore impossible
for you to identify him until
you have been dead for
about 340 years.
Professor Raleigh said he
didn't mind dying because
those who stand for liberty
want to compel. I do not mind
dying because the educators
try to tell me what to worry
about. Half the harm is done
by people who worry about
the wrong things. The other
half is done by people who do
not worry about the right
ones .
• •   •
I have now used up my un-
submerged space, so just
let me end on a happy note by
saying I envy you your energy
and your indolence alike. I
have lost some of each.
You must not lose any of
either. AH you must do, to
make sense of your life, is to
reverse their objects and become indifferent to your present enthusiasms and energetic
about things now neglected.
In this way you simply can't
go wrong.

in, two ghosts in battledress.
One ghost is larger than the
other, but equally transparent. The smaller one gibbers

We all look different. But

huts to end all huts, Hogan.
Hogan: I remember, I used
to sleep right over there, near
the back, right where that
guy's sleeping now.
Friend: He's not sleeping,
he's meditating. College students always meditate with
their mouths open. I meditated out here myself for a
couple of years, before I
joined up.

killed me.

just wants to find out if
they know.
Hogan: Don't nobody trust
one another out here?
Friend: You don't get it,
Hogan. Suppose you were in
that class. You'd be too dumb
to take down notes, and too
lazy to memorize them if
you did. You'd fail the exam.
You'd be weeded out, Hogan,
weeded out.
Hogan: I wish I could hear
what the joe's saying. Maybe

are excerpts from Mr. Howard's talk at the University
of Montreal and from an
address to a business group
in Toronto. The full text
of his remarks are available at the University Book
by Peter Howard
We have got to modernize man, in an age when we
possess greater power and the possibilities of greater wealth
and greater growth in culture than at any time before.
We have become technological and industrial and scientific
giants, but man remains a moral and spiritual dwarf. We
are still driven by hates and fears and greeds which decided
the actions of our ancestors when they dwelt in caves, or
among the trees of the jungle.
We must answer the problem that the atomic bomb is
being multiplied more and more at a time when races,
classes, colours and nations are united less and less. We
must have a revolution big enough to include and change
Communist and anti-Communist, black and white, young
and old, Anglo-Saxon and Latin.
Our revolution must be adequate to answer the sterile
anti-Communism of America and its failure to comprehend
that the whole world does not wish to be like America, and
indeed that the whole world is not meant to ibe like America.
We must answer the ruthlessness of the Chinese leaders who
told friends of mine last year, "We believe that atomic
war is not only inevitable but necessary for the triumph
of Communism and in it we are willing to lose three hundred million human lives."
I have spoken of revolution. I do not mean that outmoded and old fashioned form of revolution that starts
with the other class, race or nationality. There is nobody
more reactionary than the individual who wishes to see
the world or the country different, but is unwilling to
change themselves.
If things go on as they are by 1970 we shall have
America, Russia, France, China, Indonesia, Egypt, possibly
Israel, Japan and India all possessed of thermonuclear
weapons. If this is so, every honest man must see that
thermonuclear war will become more and not less likely
in the future. It follows that some power, some nation, some
group of nations, must be intelligent enough to proclaim a
world aim radical and revolutionary enough to include all
and to outmode the injustices against which any power
might risk a thermonuclear assault.
Moral absolutism, its traditional standards of honesty,
purity, unselfishness and love that spring from our Judaic
Christian heritage, are the only answers to political absolutism and the absolute finality of atomic war. We need a
revolution of the human heart based on absolute moral
standards, embracing everyone everywhere and proclaimed
and lived in every heart and every home. I firmly believe
Moral Re-Armament is the revolutionary issue of our times.
It is the next step for the Communist and non-Communist
world. If you believe in God, call it God's weapon for the
day and God's philosophy for the century. If not, call it
plain common sense. It is neither Left nor Right. It believes
in sound homes, teamwork in industry, unity in the nation,
a rebuilt world.
It declares that the only sane people in an insane world
are those who will start to live today as mankind must
live if we are to survive, caring enough to share enough so
all men have enough, daring enough to cross the barriers
of race and language and narrow nationalism that divide
the earth. It believes in love of home, love of homeland,
love of humanity — a love strong enough to pay the price
of seeing all of them become different.
God and man are waiting for some great nation, with all
the genius of a multi-racial and bi-lingual society, to give
the lead. It must be done. It can be done. It will be done,
if we decide, humbly, hopefully, that the grace and power
of God can do it. It is the greatest revolutionary aspiration
of all time-. And is the only revolutionary aim worthy of
this dangerous, fascinating, amazing century in which we
have the privilege to live.
Canada knows how to grow wheat. She must learn to
grow a harvest of great men. If not, she is in deadliest
You have here the same air of smug blindness and hate
without hope that I smelt in Cyprus before EOKA, in
Kenya before Mau Mau, in Viet Nam as the rioting and
beating began. Here are gusts that precede the hurricane
of a revolutionary situation. If anyone thinks we shall ride
the impending storm without either violence or radical,
rapid, concrete change he is living in a dolt's dreamland.
In Montreal I met French students, intelligent and
sincere. They do not want trouble. But they are determined
to end a situation where French Canadians are denied a
full share of the wealth, place and power of this nation.
Here a businessman said, "There is no problem. It is
a small minority. There are Communists and trouble makers.
Money power will settle it. We can crush Communism."
Here is the blind arrogance that will not face reality.
The indifference of the English has built up bitterness in
the French. Economic councils, arguments, co-existence,
confrontation, attempts to curtail and control by force or
economic pressure — none of these will work.
The sad thing is that youth, as well as the not-so-young,
seem to have become cynical about their country.
Nothing interests French Canadians more than English
Canadians with a passionate patriotism. This is a paradox
but the truth. At least they feel that such men care what
happens to the country. But where do you find them?
On television and radio, in some sections of the press,
are tolerated bullies, satirists, cynics and debunkers who
use power and brain to kill the conscience and sap the spirit
of a nation. They thrust godlessness and filth down the
gullet of the people. Forcible poisoning of the nation's
philosophy financed by government funds strides ahead.
These secularizers of society are Satanizers of society. They
are the neo-Fascists of our time. They lead us towards a
state where bloodshed and dictatorship and separation may
become inevitable. They practise a McCarthyism or morality
which says that if anyone wants to proclaim purity in youth
and in the home he must be smeared and destroyed.
A corrupt, weak society will swallow this treatment.
A sane, God-guided people will spew them forth from their
mouths and out of their jobs.
Canada, with her bi-lingualism and bi-racial society,
could affect the thinking and outlook of the U.S.A., Russia
and China, to say nothing of the old European countries.
The Communist bloc has a plan for Canada. Does
Canada have a plan for Moscow, Peking and Washington?
Canada, morally rearmed, could offer the world the
secret of growing to greatness which alone can create a truly
great society to lead humanity in the path of peace.

Red tape seen forcing
appeal for U.S. money
Canadian universities constructing basic science buildings may be forced to equip
them with grants from the U.S.
because the Canadian government says no mechanism exists
for such capital grants in Canada.
Dr. D. V. Bates, assistant
dean for graduate studies in
medical research at McGill
University said Canada's most
urgent research need is for
nearly $4 million to equip new
buildings at McGill, UBC and
the University of Western Ontario.
He said letters from McGill
to the Medical Research Council of Canada and to the Quebec government produced replies that no mechanism exists
for capital grants.
"We can't bring scientists
and show them empty floor
space. How can we recruit good
men? They can't work without
tools," he said.
Dr. Bates said the universities raised almost all the money
required to build the new
science departments.
The Farquharson Committee
eight   years   ago   advised   the
government that the new departments would require $25
million, but nothing was done.
The amount needed for expansion likely will be $400 million,
he said.
"The Canadian government
has been worse served in its
scientific research advice in
the last six or seven years than
any other Western government," he charged.
McGill University 60 years
ago attracted Lord Rutherford,
the great atomic phyicist and
probably the greatest researcher ever to work in this country
because it had the best equipped physics department in the
world, he said.
He said Canada is trying to
compete with the U.S. for university teachers with only
empty departments to show.

'Meeting needs
more time, tours'
High school conference should be extended from two
days to three, says high school conference committee chairman Robert Holtby in his report to student council.
"If the faculties which spon
sor separate tours would integrate them with High School
Conference, the combination
would justify extending the
session," he said in the report.
Holtby suggested next year's
chairman have at least one
year experience. He said lack
of experienced help was the
biggest handicap of this year's
"With the opening of Simon
Fraser Academy and past failures by delegates to report to
their schools, serious consideration as to the worth of the
conference should be taken,"
Holtby said.
He also recommended stuJ
dent-alumni tours be established and considered 'as an
alternative to  the  conference.
Whigs vote
to keep Liz
The Queen as nominal head
of the Canadian government is
okay with UBC liberals.
The liberals approved by a
vote of 21 to 15 a resolution
to keep the present mpnarchial
form of government.
The Canadian University
Liberals Federation recently
passed a motion recommending
abolition of the constitutional
monarchial form of government against the objections of
the UBC delegation.

Because it has more coverage of campus life than ever before
—The campus life book this year has 104 pages, covering
events as they happened. Over a period of seven months,
Totem photographers have taken six thousand shots of doing
hundreds of different things. Of these the best 400 are in
the book. Coverage includes 14 engineers stunts, 5 football
games, and every major event on campus. Off campus, Totem
had 3 photographers at Madri Gras, 3 at the Pep meet, 3 at
academic symposium, 2 at leadership and frosh retreat. There
were two photographers roaming campus every noon-hour all
year. So, chances are, you are in Totem.
Because it has been changed to suit you—The book this year is
again in two parts. As usual, the grad book is excellent. The
campus life book has been completely redesigned to suit your
taste. No longer in standard yearbook form, with dry group
shots and meaningless copy, it is in magazine form with
chronological coverage of events. More pictures and copy
means elimination of wasted white space and more coverage
than last year. Also, the price is down from $3 to $2 this year.
This includes 16 pages of fantastic colour.
Because it examines the future of one of the greatest of universities—Eight pages in the centre of the book are devoted
to an anaylsis of the "Guideposts to Innovation" report, the
estimated impact of SFU on UBC, and the architectural expansion plans for the campus, based on searching interviews
with Dr. MacDonald, Dr. Shrum, Dean Cowan (Grad Studies)
and Mr. Porter (architectural consultant). Elsewhere ,the plans
for the Student Union Building are shown and examined. In
the Grad Book, Oceanography, Metallurgy, Wildlife Research
and many more areas are considered in detail to reveal the
promise of UBC as a tremendous force in knowledge.
Because most people have never seen a Totem—Don't take
anyone else's word for Totem. The Grad Book costs $4.50. In
the campus life book, you receive complete coverage of life on
campus in return for $2. Judge Totem for yourself: it's worth
every penny of it. You can see it at the book store and better
AMS offices every where. Page 10

T'birds slam Calgary twice
"I SAY THERE, poor show," puffs North S hore forward, to UBC Varsity member Glen
McCannell (right) in Grass Hockey, Saturd ay. The Varsity team won the game 2 to 1
(fluke goal) while the Blues won 2-1 over the Blackbirds and the Golds lost 9-0 to the
Win by 37 twice;
so much for WCIAA
Is the Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Association for the Birds?
Most    members    of    UBC's
Men's Athletic Committee say
Thunderettes in top form
Thunderette volleyball and
swimming teams cleaned up
in Edmonton this weekend,
sweeping the WCIAA competitions.
Coached by Miss Marilyn
Russell, the volleyball team
which was tied for the lead
with Edmonton and Saskatoon
at Friday's halfway mark,
could not be stopped Saturday. Five victories both days
gave UBC a 10-0 record. Saskatoon   finished   second   with
an 8-2 record and Edmonton
was third with a 7-3 mark.
In the water, the swimming
and diving team coached by
Mrs. Linda Hunt overpowered
all opposition. Compiling 108
points, UBC far outdistanced
their closest rival Edmonton,
49, and  Saskatoon,  20.
Two record shattering performances were turned in by
Thunderettes. Bonnie Bertram,
covering the 200 yard freestyle   in   2:18.9,   clipped   10.1
UBC vulcanizes
unhappy Vikings
It was a long, quiet row home for the University of Vic
toria Vikings Sunday.
The visiting Vikings were
vulcanized 11-2 by the Thunderbirds in an exhibition hockey
game Saturday afternoon in
the Winter Sports Arena.
Victoria grabbed the lead
after four minutes had past on
the clock when forward Jim
Haggerty beat Bird goalie Jack
Harris from ten feet out.
Five minutes later slick
center Gary Dineen set up forward Clint Smith with his first
of three goals.
Dineen then tallied his first
of two goals at 10:15 when he
stick-handled through the Victoria squad and poked the puck
past Viking goalie Ted Hurd.
Goals by Ron Morris and
Smith gave UBC a 4-1 lead
after the first period.
Al Merlo, Barry MacKenzie
and Bill Bowles gave the Birds
a 7-2 margin after two periods. Haggerty scored his and
the Viking's second goal.
Bowles, Dineen, Smith and
Jack Littler tallied in the final
frame to clinch the victory.
Jack Harris in the Birds nest
made 22 saves while UBC kept
Hurd busy stopping 42  shots.
seconds off the old standard.
She also won the 100 yard
free style.
In the 100 yard breastroke,
Janet Foster bettered the old
mark of 1:21.1 with her time
of 1:19.8.
Another fine performance
for the Thunderettes was
turned in by Hazel Black, who
won the one and three metre
UBC's basketball gals lost
46-44 to Mount Pleasant Legion in a game which was tied
44-all with  15 seconds left.
High scorer for Thunderettes was centre Diane Bond
with 14 points.
But its unlikely our Thunderbird basketball team feels
the same way.
One of the main reasons
UBC pulled out of the WCIAA
last year was the mediocre
competition the Western Canadian League offered.
The Birds made the University of Alberta's (Calgary) Dinosaurs look as out of date as
their namesakes trouncing
them twice by scores of 88-51
(Friday) and 87-50 (Saturday)
on the weekend in the Memorial Gym.
Since Calgary finished its
WCIAA schedule tied for first
place, its miserable showing
against the Birds speaks poorly
for the quality of basketball
still being played in the Western Canadian League.
Friday the obviously outclassed Dinos fell behind 12-1
early in the first hali and at
no time threatened to overtake
the Birds.
Not satisfied with a 50-34
half-time lead UBC gave Calgary a look at their favourite
defensive weapon, the full
court press, with devastating
effect, for the first ten minutes
of the second half. The bewildered Dinos went almost ten
full minutes before they scored
a point.
Guard Ken McDonald led
UBC with 21 points while forward Bob Barrazzuol added 19.
Saturday Calgary spent an
even more miserable evening
in the Memorial Gym. Not only
were they humiliated for the
second straight night by the
Birds but they also found out
they had lost the WCIAA
championship to the U. of A.
(Edmonton). Edmonton beat
Saskatchewan 61-58 to take the
title and earn the right to represent the West in the national finals next month.
Since UBC no longer belongs
to the W e s t e|r n Canadian
League the Birds, who had
won the WCIAA championship
for the past five years in a row,
are not eligible for this year's
national finals.
Guard Gene Rizak led UBC
Saturday with 30 points.

Cat's Bears
lil old UBC
University   of   California
Bears trounced UBC Thunderbirds 18-3 in rough, hardhitting   World   Cup   rugby
action Saturday in Berkeley.
4,000 fans watched Cal out-
slug their smaller UBC opponents. Although California capitalized on T-jBird mistakes,
the dominant factor in the
game was their size.
•    •    •
UBC scored first, with Dave
Murphy going over for the try
at the ten minute mark. Cal
countered with a converted
try, to make the score 5-3 at
the half.
In the second half, Cal's
substitution tactics took effect,
and the fresher Bears took
control of the game, scoring
thirteen unanswered points.
UBC substituted only once,
and that was late in the second half, when Dave Howie
was knocked unconscious by
a "wayward" fist. On the
other hand, California substituted six players in the second half alone.
•    •    •
Robert Spray, president of
the Canadian Rugby Union,
was attending the game and
took issue with Cal coach, Dr.
Miles Hudson, re the unlimited substitution rule and the
refereeing, which he claimed
was less than adequate.
UBC met California yesterday at 3:30 in the second game
of the four-game World Cup

UBC rasslers win
UBC's  Thunderbird  wrestling  team  won  the  WCIAA
championships in Saskatoon over the weekend.
Coached by Paul Nemeth,
the UBC squad finished with
119 points winning each of its
dual meets with the Universities of Alberta (Edmonton and
Calgary), and Saskatchewan
(Regina and Saskatoon). Edmonton, the dethroned champions, finished second with 109
After losing a dual meet
with Edmonton three weeks
ago Nemeth put the Birds on a
rigorous training program
which included a strict diet.
By the time UBC left for
Saskatoon each athlete had
dropped down one weight class
and was in top shape.
This time the Birds defeated

dual meet to cinch the Western Canadian championships

Preparing for^the WCIAA championships next week UBC's
Thunderbird swimming team defeated University of Puget

For the Birds it was a satisfying victory as they had lost 53-41
to the tough Puget Sound team earlier this season.
Bill Gillespie and Bob Walker with two victories each and
Brian Griffith and Mike Powell with single triumphs, were
individual winners for UBC. Dwight Brown also won the diving
event for the Birds.

every day in the gym, and on Saturday afternoons and Sunday
