'UBC's standards are too low

Fort Camp students have
threatened to build a wall
across Marine-Thrive jf^a- student crosswalk isn't provided.
'"- "We expected to see s.o-Ttn e
action, by tf>e department'j of
JiighWays this-..week,, but nothing

president  JeH  McAllister.
"We'll let the matter rest a
couple more weeks, then if
nothing happens our next project will be an overpass.
: "And if that has no effect
we'll do something solid—solid
like a cement wall six feet high
and three feet thick," he added.
- "That would make sure there
was no traffic on Marine Drive
ior six months."
Fort Camp students complain
they are risking their lives dodging heavy rush hour traffic to
-tget to classes.
: Requests for a crosswalk have
been made since 1952, but students have received nothing but
verbal promises of improvement, says McAllister.
„ ; Last week, irate Fort Campers painted their own crosswalk, which washed off in the
rain, and halted traffic With a
rope barrier.
\ Department of highways has
done nothing about the problem
because the only man who
knows about it is sick, and won't
be back until next week, said
a department official.
"A crosswalk will be put in
if really necessary," the official
said. "But in our experience,
they (crosswalks) are not much
"A crosswalk is not a guarantee against accident. It instead
lulls the pedestrian into a sense
of false security."

Two remaining positions on
Frosh Council were filled by appointment Wednesday.

newsletter editor and Margaret
O'Donnell public relations officer. The candidates were selected by Frosh Council.

6,000 cheer Preps
at gym performance
The Four Preps were Big Men on campus Thursday.
More than 6,000  UBC students jammed Memorial  Gym
to watdh the California quartet give an hour-long performance,
Despite the fact the Preps
were 45 minutes late because
of fog at the airport, they were
given thunderous applause by
the   overflow   crowd.
Students sat on beams at the
top of the gym and covered the
spacious floor.
The group presented a mixture of hit songs, takeoffs, and
topical  wisecracks.
"The proceeds from this
event go to a worthy cause,"
joked lead Glenn Larson, "We're
sending CARE packages to
Delta Upsilon."
The group picked up the local
color—references to DU, The
Georgia, and Dr. John Macdonald—en route from the'airport.
During their hasty dressing-
room     interview,     the     Preps
asked some questions themselves..
"Any news of the Cuban
situation, anybody started shooting yet?" asked Larson.
They were curious about
Canadian reaction to the current crisis.
When told the Canadian
opinion seemed split on the
American policy, one demanded: "How would you like it if
a country hostile to Canada
set up missile bases in Newfoundland?"

preps said they couldn't classify themselves as a "type" of

to current popular items like
folk songs."

Dr. Macdofiald delivered his
inaugural address as president
at installation ceremonies in
the armory Thursday afternoon.
He said present UBC admission practices demoralize, fail-'
ing students, disappoint the
staff and inevitably lower
They also place unrealistic
goals before the whole community and a "social premium
on a college education,' he added.
"An excellent plumber is indefinitely more admirable than
an incompetent philosopher,"
the president said.
"The society which scorns
excellence in plumbing because
plumbing is a humble activity
and tolerates shoddiness in
philosophy because it is an ex.
alted activity will have neither
good philosophy nor good plumbing."
The president continued:
"The task for this University
and for thjs province is to make
the opportunities of higher
education available to all those
who can profit by them, to chose
wisely who belongs here and
those who don't."
"For each (student) who is
admitted, our task is to challenge, stimulate and excite the
intellect, to expect and demand
the best that is in him," he said.
Dr. Macdonald paid tribu:e
to retiring president Dr. Norman MacKenzie.
"(He) piloted this University
(for) 18 years with skill, affection and courage,"  he said.
"This University, this province and all Canada are indebted to him for his contributions to higher education and
his unselfish dedication to helping young Canadians obtain a
university   education."

Four honorary degrees will
be conferred today as part of fall
convocation ceremonies.
The ceremonies will take
place in the Armory at 2:15
p.m. Classes will be cancelled
for the entire afternoon.
Dr. I. M. Lerner, a UBC graduate and a world authority on
genetics will receive an honorary degree of science.
Sir Ronald Gould, another
recipient of an honorary degree,
will be the convocational speaker. Gould is general secretary
of the National Union of Teachers in England.
Honorary degrees of doctor of
law will be conferred on Dr.
J. F. K. English, B.C. deputy
minister of education; and Dr.
Claude Bissell, president of the
University of Toronto.

The Alma Mater Society's "prosperity" budget is even
more prosperous than the first draft indicated.
Clubs and undergraduate societies will now receive increased grants of $370 and $550 respectively and the publications allotment is up $1,500.
Final approval of the budget was given by council at its
last meeting.
A 50 per cent cut in the accident benefit fund, approved
at the Oct. 18 general meeting,, freed $2,620 for other activities, said AMS treasurer Malcolm Scott. Page 2

Charity first for ethic experts pockets
The advertising department of the Alma
Mater Society has set itself up as an authority
on newspaper ethics.
In a fulmination printed on page six of
Wednesday's edition, the twin bureaucrats of
the advertising department apologized to the
students and adverisers for an editorial that
appeared in Tuesday's paper.
; These gentlemen, who sign themselves R. B.
McKay and R. h. Frisby, suggest that The
Ubyssey was unethical in pointing to specific
ads and what revenue they brought to the
Surely such information is the business of
AMS members—our readers and our publishers. It is they who must decide in the final
analysis whether they want a paper choked
with advertising or one filled with news and
And these experts on newspaper ethics are
surely aware of this provision in the Canons of
Journalism, accepted as an ethical guide by
most English-speaking newspapers:
"At no time shall advertising be allowed to
take precedence over news."
As the grey flannel mind has gained more
and more precedence in the AMS, advertising
has been allowed to encroach more and more
upon news space.
Somewhere, a halt had to be called. That
point was reached Tuesday when the advertising department presented the editors with
121 column inches of advertising arid told them
they had to get it and the news of the weekend
into a paper containing less than a total of 300 .
column inches of space.
To accommodate most of the important nejws
(by no means all), editorial space was unwillingly sacrificed.
In order to forestall further sacrifices in the
future, a protest was made.
Because this protest may have offended advertisers, our experts in ethics were worried.
Not likely because they feared loss of revenue
to the AMS.
More likely because tihey feared loss '■ of
revenue to themselves. Each year, they split
about $2,400 in commissions between themselves and their salesmen. The Ubyssey editors
spend longer hours for a total return of less
than $950. Many get no remuneration.
The editors do not object to advertising.
They recognize it is an integral part of the
information-carrying function of a newspaper.
Students want to know what advertisers have
to offer.
They object only too high a percentage of
advertising. This gives advertising undue preference over news. Is it unethical to object
to this?
Letters to the editor: Panel for peace biased?
The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
As a student who attended
Wednesday's rally "for peace"
at UBC I wish to make it
.clear that contrary to the impression given by news reports
not all students supported the
panel's anti-Kennedy stand. In
fact, the panel failed to sway
most of the 3,000 students to
an outright condemnation of
the United States as witnessed
by the lack of interest in the
anti-Kennedy petition circulated among the students at
the close of the meeting.
The deliberate bias of the
panel offended many students
who would have been much
more impressed had both sides
of the question been, discussed.
There was no mention of
Chinese Communist attacks
on India's northern frontiers;
no mention of the Berlin Wail
and its contravention of the
United Nations Charter; no
mention of the USSR's breaking the nuclear test moratori
um; no mention of the USSR's
deliberate attempts to scuttle
the effectiveness of the United
Nations by exercising its veto
eighty-five times. In .short,
there was no appraisal of the
provocative incidents which
led to President Kennedy's
grave actions.
The news reports did not
mention that some of the
loudest cheers were given to
the students, who spoke in support of Kennedy over the protest of the panel. If the Nuclear
Disarmament Club were true
to its principles it would not
condemn the United States but
would "condemn the USSR,
which by its actions in Cuba,
is causing the spread of nuclear
weapons. I fear that the type
of thinking epitomized by this
panel is unwittingly aiding the
avttwed goals of international
Yours truly,
Graduate     Student
in Political Science.
Kennedy hypocrite?
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The paper protesting Kennedy's stand on Cuba was
"Issued by Fair Play for Cuba
Committee — labor donated."
The paper calls Kennedy a
liar and a hypocrite. The committee must know a great deal
to proclaim such a bold statement.
They want to protest; they
want to hold a "mass protest
rally" in front of the USA
consulate. They want to wire
Herridge, Diefenbaker, and
Kennedy. What do they base
their actions on?
Let us approach this problem from a logical standpoint. They assume to know
more than the president; they
assume they know better than
he what is right or-wrong.
What makes them think so?
They surely are not ignorant, or stupid or uninformed
or prejudiced. Therefore they
must be in a position better
than the president to be able
to say that they know better
than he does.
So they must have been
president of the UN or USA
or dictator of the USSR from
say  1955 to  1962.
So let's go see the Four
Preps; at least they're entertaining.
Yours truly,
Science 2.
Half pair nylons
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
It has been brought to my
attention, by a learned mathematician and scholar, that
there exists a gross materialistic sin in being "absum"
from lectures. This same associate confronts me with the
statistic- following:
For the mean artsman, with
academic fees $322.00 and
an average 23 -hour week,
the cost per lecture is an
overwhelming 52c. What is -
52c you say. This seemingly
paltry amount is 5.2 coffee's,
2.6 beer, or even .5 nylons—
the necessities of life! Therefore miss ye not your lectures, for the economic repercussions will be horrendous!
Yours  truly,
Arts and Science 1.
Please help us
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We, the neglected, are having one hqck of a time writing
on right-handed desks. Please
tell why, for $355, we cannot
find left-handed desks.

This is the third in ?
series of personality
sketches on UBC's Thunderbird Rowers who will
compete in the British
Empire Games next month.
Take one look at the
UBC rowing roster and
you will see that Don

of anything.
He isn't the shortest
(he's 6-3), the tallest, the
lightest (he's ISO), the
heaviest, or the youngest
(he's 22).
Which makes him a pretty average No. 3 j oarsman
—and quiet too, at least
until you catch him with
his bosom buddy Wilson.
Then the fun starts.
Wilson is the catalyst
which starts Dewey on a
violent chemical reaction.

Macdonald installed
with color, ceremony
An aura of color and ceremony enveloped UBC Thursday, !
focused on Dr. John Macdonald.
He became the fourth president of this university.
Chancellor  Phyllis   Ross   inaugurated him before- a crowd
of more than 2,500 people.
He was installed with the
dignified black, siver-trimmed
robes of his office, by Frederick
H. Soward, senior member of
the faculty.
The procession was led by Dr.
Malcolm McGregor, dean of
classical studies, carrying the
mace of the University of B.C.
Chancellor Phyllis Ross said:
"Our University has been singu-
arly blessed in choosing men at
the proper moment to give direction and guidance to this academic community as it has passed from tempestuous birth to
the maturity of its middle years.
"We have chosen Dr. Macdonald at a moment in our history
when we promise to become a
centre of-learning of international importance and an energizng
force both in Canada and abroad.
"We will do whatever lies in
our power to aid him in the
mission to which he has now
devoted his life."'
Doug Stewart, president of student council, said: "Dr. Macdonald, you have won our admiration by your tact, fairness and
"Your   philosophy   of   giving
student responsibility is pf immeasurable value.
"I thank you for this freedom
of action and opinion Qn behalf

fruitful partnership with you."

University and the Royal Military College in Kingston.
He was director of English
studies at St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, in 1952 and
1953 while on a travelling fellowship from Queen's University.
Edinborough is a journalist.
He was editor of the Kingston Whig- Standard from 1954
to 1958. He was editor and
publisher of the now defunct
Saturday Night magazine from
1958  until  1962.
When in June, 1962, the new

Graduate student suspended
Page 5
Free love at Cornell - no sir!
A second-year student was
suspended from Cornell University last week for living with
a woman in his apartment.
In leaving he expressed his
thanks to the university for its
concern for his moral and spiritual welfare.
Cornell's Faculty Committee
on Student Conduct, in an unprecedented    move,    made    the
Community leaders workshop
planned for UBC, West Van
Two workshops for community leaders will be held during October and November at UBC and West Vancouver.
The West Vancouver workshop will be held Oct. 23-25
at the West Vancouver YMCA. The UBC workshop will take
place Nov. 20-22 at the Acadia Extension Centre.
. These workshops have been planned for committee and
board members, service and discussion groups, and all persons interested in public relations.

ROTP types won't
get trip to Cuba
Members of the university's officer training program do
not face immediate callup in the event of war.
Army and air force spokesmen said Wednesday it is "highly unlikely" student reservists
would be called.
They based their judgments
on action taken during past conflicts.
"The bulk of the students
continue their training," said
Wing Commander R. G. Herbert
of the university Air Force detachment.
"Very few of them have the
ability to fill active positions at
present," he said.
'Only those able to fill a real
position would be subject to
employment," Herbert added.
An army spokesman said
chances are nine out of 10 the
student officers would continue
as students.
"It would depend on govern
ment ruling, but I doubt they
would be called unless there was
a great requirement," the
spokesman said.
"The obligation of these reserve; people is obscure," Herbert said. "I imagine the pattern
would follow that of past conflicts."
Student officer trainees were
chosen on voluntary basis during World War II and the Korean conflict.
Naval authorities were not
available for comment.
Student boom

ruling after only an hour of discussion.
Robert D. Sweet, chairman of
the faculty committee, explained, "sexual morality is a legitimate concern of the university
Sweet said not only does the
faculty have the duty to impose
any punishment it desires on a
student who violates "the moral
code," but also, has the right to
decide just what this code is.
"Until such time as there is
legislation before the faculty
permitting overnight unchaper-
oned company," said Sweet,
"we'll consider it as unacceptable behaviour."
Student president Harold Nathan said: "The university has
the right to establish rules and
regulations for students „ . , I
call for patience and reason on
the part of the students."
But the rest of the student
body was far from apathetic. The
editor of the Cornell Daily Sun
attacked the faculty's attempt
to take all personal responsi-
biliy out of the hands of the students.
All Cornell students are required to sign a code stating
they are "free and responsible."
One student suggested an
amendment, "Freedom means
the freedom to agree with university policy and responsibility
not to disagree."

Walt Raleigh,
One of the outstanding botanists ever to
graduate, Walt built his early reputation
on his major thesis "The Care and
Cultivation of Nicotinia for Profit." An
excellent athlete, Raleigh is fondly remembered for an incident which occurred
in his sophomore year. Shortly before the
Big Game, Walt impulsively threw his
football sweater over a puddle which
lay in the path of that year's Beauty
Queen. It was the only game on record in
which eleven of our varsity squad wore
numbers and one a large dirty footprint.
After graduation, Walt went overseas to
spark up the consumption of Virginia
tobacco in England. He was "capped"
for England against Spain on several
occasions. He was finally "de-capped"
after a local scrimmage against a team
from the Tower of London. A monument
in his memory is being proposed by a
local manufacturer of filters.

Heights affect different people in different ways.
Peter Mullins, coach of the

heights—at least when they

fronl the back.
For Mullins stands a solid

Part Patterson; the coach of

All interested students are
: invited to attend.
Patterson is a former U.S.

Olympic team.

" years,   is   sponsored   by   the

the tallest man on the squad
at six feet seven inches.
Just one inch below Erickson, at &fr", is Keith Hartleyr
who   played   with   the   B.C.
champion   New   Westminster
Bakers last year.
John Cook and Mike Pot-
konjafe both hover around the
6'4" mark. Cook was a first-
stringer with the Birds last
year, while Potkonjak played
for the Bakers.
Mullins,   watching   this   25
feet of humanity roam around
War  Memorial  gym  Wednesday, came up with a statement
which surprised nobody.
"We should win the Western Intercollegiate title," he
said. "We have a very good
team this year."
Mullins' starting team this
year will probably have Keith
Hartley at centre, Mike Potkonjak and John Cook in the
forward positions, and Laurie
Predinchuk and Earl Faren-
holtz in the backcourt.
*      *      *
In 1961-62, Predinchuk led
the WCIAA in field goal percentage with a 49 per cent
average. Farenholtz, due to
eligibility difficulties, was unable to play for the Birds,
but starred for the Jayvees in
the second half of the season.
Mullins plans to use the fast
break extensively this year.
His offence will be a single
post type, and the defence
will be primarily man-to-man.
"We will have to work on
our defence," Mullins said.
It's not too effective right
now, but with a little work
it should be good and strong."
"We have lots of height this
year," Mullins continued, and
plenty of speed, too. Our
shooting shouldn't give us any
trouble, either."
