BEN HUR BATTLE ROYAL fills Stadium at noon Thursday as engineers, aggies, and unattached spectators tangle during chariot race. Engineers won race.
Student wins test case
Race was
well, uh,
a mess
^Engineers wallowed in flung
dung to win Thursday's chariot
race by more than half a lap.
The aggies threw handfuls of
dung and sprayed liquid barnyard surplus at their red-shirt-
ed opponents seconds after the
annual race got under way at
the Teacup Game.
But the farmers could not free
their chariot from a hand-picked
engineering goon squad which
Halted the aggie vehicle near
the starting line.
. Aggies also used sciencemen
as chariot-pullers, parts of a defunct science chariot, and
scienceman Rick Wicket in their
four-man boat-race team.
The engineers also won the
beer-drinking contest. They defeated teams from the agricultural and forestry faculties.
The Ubyssey team was disqualified by referee Frank
Gnup for allegedly spilling too
much beer. (Story, page 3).
At the start of the chariot
race' members of the audience
judiciously opened umbrellas
to avoid debris tossed on and
by the contestants.
More  than  375   cross-country
runners and one horse stormed
out of the stadium in professional style.
But most of them, including
the horse, didn't return. When
the first runners did come back
from the round-the-campus
marathon—they entered unnoticed.
Ubyssey drinkers in their
smart white beer-guzzling
aprons were acclaimed the stars

took a handoff and sneaked 50
yards down the left sidelines
for the opening touchdown.

a new record for Teacup history,

only two summers since coming

"But he has been sleeping at

frosh split
Frosh council feels unwanted.
President Paul Danyliu says
he first noticed it when all kinds
of people started using his office for a sitting room.
Tuesday, a publication called
the Fartisan—the Frosh Artisan—appeared, which, according to Danyliu, was not sponsored by the council.
"No one consulted the council and we didn't give them any
funds for it," he said.
A rival group seems to think
that it knows what the Frosh
want, he said.
The split came into the
open last week with the announcement by vice-president
Vincent Kong that Frosh were
going to align themselves with
the Sciencemen.
Danyliu says the council supported no such move and that
Kong was not speaking for the

One down, but hundreds to go
Thursday's county court decision by Judge
Alfred Swencisky immediately casts doubt on
the validity of decisions against other students
turned down in the arbitrary tribunal called
the Court of Revision.
Judge Swencisky's decision clearly states
that section 5g of Chapter 5 of the election act
overrules the section on which the Court of
Revision decisions were based/section 5a.
Section 5g states:
"The residence of a single man (and according to Judge Swencisky 'of a single woman')
shall be the place where he usually sleeps . . ."
Students apparently should not be turned
down on the basis of where their parents live
or where their marks will be sent—although
many students have been disqualified at the
Court of Revision on these grounds.
Lawyers suggest that as a result of the de
cision, all students who sleep in Point Grey
should be allowed to vote.
The decision, however, is up to the Court
of Revision. It has two choices.
It can either decide that Judge Swencisky's
decision sets a precedent—and allow all students living in the Point Grey area to vote.
Or, it can go on turning down the majority
of students who appear.
We hope the decision will be to allow all
students to vote if they live in the area.
If it is not, then it is up to the students to
appeal as many of the judgments of the Court
of Revision as possible.
Tim Flegal was the first to appeal. He won.
If the government does not accept the
court's decision as a precedent, Flegal must not
be the last.

With the thought of Christmas exams bearing down on us, we are brought to contemplation of the situation about four months from
It will be similar, except that the exams will
be finals instead of relatively unimportant
Christmas exams. And the pressure will be
twice as great.
That's why we are wondering why UBC has
never tried having a mid term break.
This is the increasingly popular practice on
eastern university campuses.
The break is usually taken—for a week or
so, about a month before final exams.
During the break, students have a chance
to catch up on missed assignments, late lectures
and studying.
Some, of course, waste the time—but it is
a valuable respite before the final grind for
It would be especially valuable here where
over-ambitious professors often assign essays
and long reading lists that have to be completed
a few weeks before exams.
With a mid term break, such assignments
could be cleared up leaving the student with
nothing to do during his last few weeks but
study for his finals.
We don't think this would be perverting the
"idea "of finals. Neither do the eastern universities which are implementing the mid term
It would just take off the strain of the
present system.
UBC should try it.
The real winners
The stunts at Thursday's Teacup Game, to
coin a phrase, raised a bit of a stink.
But it was all in good (relatively), clean fun.
The Engineers won the chariot race, slimily.
The Engineers won the boat race, questionably.
And Home Ec. won the powderpuff bowl
game, beautifully.
But the real winner was the Children's Hospital, financially. Thirteen hundred dollars will
go to providing better care and facilities for
unfortunate children.
This fund drive was a greater success than
some of the more conventional ones held on
campus in recent weeks.
This one got us in a usually tender spot—;
the pocket book. But it didn't hurt a bit.

Grand slam
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I suggest The Ubyssey take
a second look at the merit of
George Bowering as a critic.
It is entirely consistent, I feel,
with the general tone of The
Ubyssey critical reviews that
a man of Bowering's talent
and flaunted intellect should
be a feature writer. Never has
there been, surely, such a happy combination of a complete
psuedo-intellectual vacuum
present in the mind of a reviewer joined with the utter
lack of technical ability to
write coherently which Bowering displays.
That Layton "equals romance with a capital R and
O and M and so on" is meagre
evidence of the proported excellence of this poetry; that
Bowering praises him so highly is even less of a plug.
Bowering gives us several
reasons for admiring Layton's
poetry: "he makes snow melt";
he draws hefty crowds (so does
Deitrich Luth-—is his oratory

ed in the past by such eminent
critics as, you guessed it,

concerned with life as an empty belly (an empty belly
would, I think, be rather more
concerned with food than

Frosh Council protest
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
The Frosh council wishes to
state that it was-in no way responsible for the rag published
last Wednesday appropriately
titled  "Fartisan,"  and  that it
abhors the extreme poor taste
shown in this publication.
It is a low enough individual who attacks faculties and
elected bodies and representatives with deliberately misrepresented "facts," makes jest
of women's internal sanitary
problems, comments question-
ingly on the masculinity of
male members on campus, and
. seems to condone, with perverted glee, the defacing of
statues in delicate regions of
the body, but when these attacks and comments are hidden behind the craven cloak
of anonymity, council can only
wonder how low these individuals crawl.
Further, council asks if the
"Fartisan" publishers are so
dissatisfied with their elected
officials, why did they vote
for them, or better still, why
didn't they run for office?
In conclusion, council suggests to those Frosh who seem
to be allying themselves with
Science that they grow up,
cease their juvenile slander-
ings, and accept the fact that
there is a proper way of doing
We want spirit but not the
dung-slinging type they offer.

Frosh President.
is all good, then we must also
admit that he would wish to
prevent evil. Evil exists, how*
ever, so God either did not
know enough to prevent it, or
was not powerful" enough to
do so.
The objection usually raised,
at this point is that God has
given mankind a free will,
and consequently cannot interfere with worldly affairs, although he still possesses the
aforementioned qualities of
omniscience, omnipotence, and
■¥•      +      *
But   here    we   run    into   a
problem   with   the  concept   of *
free will, for if God is all-wise
then  surely  he  must  be   able
to see into the future.
In other words he knows,
right now, whether or not you-
are going to have Jet-puffs
for breakfast tomorrow. In
view of this, then, is it correct to say that anybody has
"free" will?
If we say a person is free,
we mean that he could have
acted in a way that is different from the way he actually
does. But if God knew in advance that an action was going to take place, then obvious-;
ly that action had to take
place, and there was no choice .
involved. The individual could
not have acted in a way differ^

The conclusion to be drawn
from this is that if God is all-
wise, then we cannot have
free will. But the converse is
also true; namely, that if we
do have free will, then God is
not all-wise.
We are now in a position
to reconsider the objection
raised earlier: that God has-
given man a free will and
cannot therefore interfere with
worldly affairs, although he
still possesses his Godly quali-.
If we accept this we are
forced to accept the statement
that God has given us free
will, and that he is all-wise.
But we have already shown
this to be impossible.
From this we can see that
the objection is not valid, and"
that the original argument still
stands; we are forced to seek
a new and different definition
of God. * Friday, November 16, 1962

In UBC's overcrowded library
Seven people want same desk
Ubyssey Feature Staff
Do you know why:
• you can't get that book
that is on reserver
• you are fined for overdue
• you can't find a seat in
the library after 8:30 a.m.?
• you are not allowed in
the stacks?
• you can't get a carrell?
Money is the answer.
• •      •
It's because there aren't
enough funds available to enlarge present facilities that
everyone is inconvenienced
says University librarian Dr.
James Ranz.
And the reason you can't
find a seat in the library is
simple: seven others want that
same desk.
Not only can you not find
a seat, you can't get a carrell
either, unless you are doing
graduate studies and then you
have to share it with five or
six other students.
First and second year students are not allowed in the
stacks except after 6 p.m. and
on weekends because there
are simply too many students
for the library staff to cope

The college library is basically for their use in the
Why the turnstiles? Because
people steal books.
But the loss of books isn t
as disconcerting as the loss of
pages torn from periodicals,
said Inglis Bell, Head of the
Circulating Division.
"We usually recover the
lost books as many as two to
three years later," he said,
"but the periodicals require
that either a new edition be
bought, or that the pages be
photo-printed, re-inserted, and
the copy rebound."
By the time the magazines
are removed from the shelves,
bound, and then replaced,
several weeks have gone by,
Bell said.
It is also imperative that
books are returned to the
library when they are due.

veniences not only other students but the library staff as
well, he added.
About 1,200 to 2,000 books
are borrowed by students each
day from the central loan
desk. This excludes books
loaned from other areas of the
building, said Bell.

In some instances, reserve
books may be taken out for
only  two  hours.
In others, lower year students may have such limited
library privileges, whereas
upper year students may take
these books out overnight and
the graduates for one week.
Furthermore, the time involved checking the stacks,
sending out notices, and finding the student costs money.

At present there are half a

—Don Hume  photo
PEEKING onto the ice, Father Bauer looks somewhat unhappy
'   in this shot, taken last year. Bauer has more reason to be
ha^py this year, as his team is the best UBC has ever had.
, ,     Birds play in Chilliwack Saturday.
Bauer hopes balance
will tip the scales
TJBC hockey coach Father David Bauer Wednesday announced some mare exhibition games for this year's Thunder
bird team.
Games have been lined up
December 22 and 23 with state
colleges at Bakersfield and Long
Beach, California. UBC also
plans games with Gonzaga University at Spokane and with
Denver University.
Just what kind of a team do
the much-publicized Birds have
this season?
"We're a well-balanced team,"
says coach Father Bauer.
"We've matured, we're far better than last year."
Bauer is working hard for
good balance between the offence and defence. "I want the
kind of team that can hold a
one-goal lead near the end of
the game," he says.
Birds showed plenty of balance in their first Outing when
they dropped Powell River Regals 3-2. Next exhibition game
is Saturday against Chilliwack
Bauer looks forward to the
upcoming WCIAA season with
anticipation. "It should be an
interesting year," he says. "Alberta has another strong team.
We don't know about Saskatchewan. They lost most of their
top players last year, but they'll
probably get some good boys
from the junior teams. I think
we'll do pretty well."
Bauer was pleased with Wednesday's announcement that
money has been found to build
UBC's long-awaited winter
sports arena by next September. Meanwhile, Bauer's Birds
continue to practice in dank-
barn Kemsclaie arena.
Birds win protest;
advance in playoff
Mainland Soccer League officials upheld the UBC Thunderbirds protest of last Sunday's
1-1 tie with Vancouver Italians,
and as a result Birds will move
into the quarter-finals of
Imperial Cup play.
UBC will host the first division St. Andrews team Saturday at 2 p.m. at Mclnnes field.
UBC's protest was based on
the fact that Italians used too
many substitutes during the
Irish and
Steel mix
The luck of the Irish will be
skating with the Thunderbird
pucksters when they face off
against the Chilliwack Steelheads Saturday night in Chilliwack.
Dave Chambers and Terry
O'Malley, a couple of hefty
leprechan's, will have the job
of protecting goalie Ken Br ode-
Peter Kelly will lead the offence at centre, flanked by
Mickey McDowell and Barry
McKenzie on the left and right
wings, respectively.
Birds have played Steelheads
every year in their exhibition
schedule and have usually
come out the underdogs.
This year the situation should
be reversed with the strength
of the eastern players on the
university squad.
The UBC Judo Club will be out to floor its opponents this
Saturday at the memorial gym.
It will host 21 clubs at the
club's first annual tournament.
Preliminaries will start at 2
p.m. with the black belt finals
at seven at the Memorial Gym.
Since a modest beginning on
campus three years ago, the
UBC club has come a long way.
It was originally organized by
a small interested group headed
by Al MacLean and Arpad Toth.
But in three short years membership has sprouted from 20
to 144.
The club has been instrumental in bringing former judo men
out of retirement. Competent
instructors have been found to
train the beginner members.
In the club's first year, the
five-man UBC team was defeated by overwhelming scores.
In the second year, with most
of the members having a year's
experience, it did well in local
They placed second against
a strong field dominated by the
Vancouver and Steveston clubs.
In the third year of competition, the team travelled to Vernon and placed in the semifinals. Team captain Jack Aoyama, a first kyu (grade) brown
belt, returned with individual

It's the people that made them good
People made the difference to this year's
Thunderbird football team.
People like line coach Lome Davies, a likable
enthusiastic man whose work lifted some of the
load off head coach Frank Gnup's shoulders.
Davies   firmly   believes   that   UBC   football
never needs to take a  back seat to American
competition   and   in  his   tough   aggressive   way
attempts to convince his linemen of the fact.
•     •     •
Then there are other people like team captain Ray Shatzko and defensive captain Ray
Shatzko was a steady tackle capable of going
both ways with rugged effectiveness, while
Wickland performed admirably as the chief
charger of the thundering line.
People like offensive backfield stars Barry
Carkner and Norm Thomas were key factors in
Birds' win streak.
New people like Dave and Dick Gibbons,
Tom Thompson, Robin Dyke, Peter Lewis and
Hal Steadham came up from junior ranks.
These were some of the people responsible
for Birds' 5-1 record in the WCIAA. They blanked Manitoba and Saskatchewan both at home
and away. Against the American teams they
were less successful, losing three straight.
•      •      •
But overall they still were batting over .500
with a 6-4 record.
This winter the team is undergoing a strenuous weight-lifting and isometric training program as one of the ambitious steps taken by the
coaches to build better players.
Davies kind of summed things up after the
Birds final game when he said, "Men, next
season begins next week."

Sino-Indian war result
of 'Hitlerite  tactics
MONTREAL (CUP)—The Indian High Commissioner to Canada says the present crisis in
India is a result of "raw and
naked aggression."
Speaking to the fourth annual
Sir George Williams University
Seminar on International Affairs, His Excellency C. S. Jha
said the Chinese "were casting
to the winds all norms of international law and behaviour.
They display arrogance in their
plans for territorial expansion."
He compared the Chinese action to Hitler's invasion of Poland. The high commissioner
said this territorial hunger on
the part of Red China would
be one of the problems the United Nations would have to face
in the future.
"The invasion came as a surprise to us," he said. "There
were a few skirmishes but we
certainly did not expect such
a massive attack.
"The whole thing is an at*
tempt to  browbeat and humili
ate India. We cannot know the
motivations of such an absurd
war ... It is very difficult to
get intelligence out of what the
Chinese are doing.
"India is not a state organized
for this warfare. Ever since her
inception India has been a
peace-loving nation."
China, on the other hand, has
geared itself for this kind of a
war, Jha said.
India, as a non-aligned nation
has not paid sufficient attention
to the possibility of war, he said.
His excellency answered
charges that India's military un-
preparedness came because she
has too many of her troops in
Kashmir, holding the city
against Pakistani domination.
"... It is possible that because of this we have been unable to guard our frontier as
well as possible. But why have
we put cur troops there?
"Certainly, we are not responsible for this. It is because
Pakistan is occupying Kashmir.'
