comeback.
The University of Toronto's
winter carnival will be kicked
off with a gala bed push on,
Toronto streets, police department permitting.
This push w'ill have a new

The most recent request was
made Sept. 21.
So far the association has received no further word from
the justice department.
Ottawa ignores queries
on  RCMP  surveillance
OTTAWA (CUP)—The Canadian Association of University Teachers got the political brushoff when it attempted to
get information about undercover RCMP agents on university
campuses, it has been revealed here.
According to a report released
by the CAUT, the group has requested five times to meet with
the minister of justice since Feb.
1962.
\ The CAUT was accorded only
one meeting—that with Davie
Fplton last summer, after he had
been made minister of public
works.
t The report says Fulton at that
time "made it clear that he was
' not speaking for the Department
of Justice and could give no assurances about its policies (on
investigating students)," the report said.
Since then the CAUT has circulated a resolution calling for
faculty members to refuse to
answer questions posed by RCMP officers.
The report said that prior to
the meeting with Fulton the association had requested a meeting during the period March 5
to 9, 1962 which was refused.
On April 27, 1962 the association again wrote the minister, this time enclosing a series
of questions the association
\|ould like some comment on.
; The minister phoned the association and said a meeting was
impossible, then.
The meeting with Fulton, by
now public works minister, took
place last summer.
Still not having talked with
a minister of justice, the association   renewed   its   request,   this
Patrolman
foils thug
in bus stop
A university patrolman foiled
an attempt of two men to break
into the bus stop cafe Saturday.
Patrolman Tom Statham spotted the men near the rear door
of the cafeteria as he made his
rounds about 8 p.m.
Statham yelled at the men.
One of them fled. After a short
struggle, Statham grabbed the
second and threw him to the
ground, breaking the man's wrist
Police later charged Walter
Corkum with breaking and
entering.
Cafeteria manager, Mrs. Janet
Marsh, said Monday that nothing
appeared to be stolen.
It is believed that the men
entered the building by smashing a lock on the rear door.
Police are searching for a
second man.
It was the second -breakin on
campus in the past month.
• Thieves broke into Brock Hall
during the Christmas holidays
and stole $165 in cash arid cigarettes from a cigarette machine.
Higher education will cost Canada $1 billion a year by 1970.
This prediction was made by President Dr. John Macdonald at a Board of Trade luncheon Monday. He based this figure
on an expected enrolment of 312,000 students in Canadian universities by 1970.
This is an increase of 2%
times present student enrolment,
he said.
"No one has ever been able
to measure what percentage of
a population has the intellectual
endowment to profit by education beyond high school, but if
B.C. could choose the best 25
per cent of all the students in
1970, the outlook would be encouraging," he said.
LONG ROAD
"In Canada we are a long way
from this objective.
"Only half the matriculants
with 70 per cent or better go on
to university, and half of those
now at the universities have
grades  below  70  per  cent.
"The students enrolled in Canadian colleges and universities
in 1961-62 were 12.3 per cent of
the college-age population compared to 39.5 percent in the
to 39.5 percent in the U.S.
Dr. Macdonald said the low
proportion obtaining higher education in B.C. and Canada as
compared to the U.S. is reflected
in employment patterns.
"Only a quarter of Canada's
labor force is employed in skilled occupations, compared with
one-half in the U.S.," he said.
NEW DIMENSION
"The task and cost of meeting
the requirements for higher education in the years ahead are of
a new dimension.
"These costs cannot be met by
any single group within society,
but no group can avoid sharing
in the responsibility.
"Paying for higher education
must become a matter of the
highest priority for the provincial government."
He   said 'the   federal   govern
ment, which at the moment supports higher education directly
at a rate of $2 per head of population, must support it on a,
new and  imaginative  scale.
"Municipalities must also be
asked to share generously; in providing funds," he told the gathering.
"And graduates of our colleges and universities must meet
their personal responsibilities to
the institutions that have helped
them."
He said the shortage of manpower is very real and has been-
aggravated by the perpetual
spinning of the people there are,
in misdirected efforts.
FRILLS
"Too much travel, too much.
busy administration, too many
coast to coast committees, too
many conferences and too little
time spent on the tasks for which
the able people have special
skills,"  he said.
"While it is true in business,
I believe it is even more evident
in universities.
'<Let us try to preserve and
protect the time of our talented
people so that they may engage
more effectively in the creative
work which holds the key to our
future."
Dr. Macdonald said he does
not have the answers to the problems facing higher education.
"The answers are not simple
and will not be forthcoming from
casual discussion. They will be
found by the dedicated determined efforts of all our leaders
in education, business and government, and I believe that they
will be found through a renewal
in our national challenge and
national opportunity," he said.
The battling bane of Buchanan biffies
Got to be quick to do the trick
In Buchanan, you've got to
rush before you flush.
Or else your unprotected
rear will wear a blush.
Unsettled Buchanan bathroom users are levelling this
complaint at pop-up toilet
seats installed this session.
"It's all done so coldly and
quickly," said one student.
Another said: "You've got to
grab it and hold it down, and
hop on it."
The spring-loaded seats have
a habit of popping up and
smacking tender white unsuspecting seats.
They are more powerful thap
the spring loaded jobs used in
the library for years.
But no one seems to know
why Buchanan users have
them.
BUCHANAN TENDER TRAP
. . . spring has sprung
A Building and Grounds
spokesman said:
"I don't know why they're
there. There is such a type
(spring-loaded) but I don't
know why we have them instead of another type."
The trick, experienced users
said, is to hold the seat down
while you sit.
But don't only hold down
one side.
If you do, the other side pops
up and smacks you.
While alighting, do so with
both sides held down.
A faculty member expressed
surprise when told about the
seating problem.
He said faculty washroom

General opinion
around campus
snow  must  go!
By ANN BURGE
The skiers still aren't happy.
Friday they complained: —
"What the hell good is cold when
there isn't any snow."
Now they have snow.
But are they happy?
No.
"What the hell good is snow,
now that it's warming up?" says
■ Ubyssey   ski   columnist George
Railton.
The soccer players aren't happy either. The intramural soccer game tomorrow will be held,
snow, ice, or slush.
Neither is the College Shop
staff. They sold out of scarves
in last week's cold snap and were
unable to get more in time for
the snow.
"We'll have a new supply in
" a couple    of   weeks," a College
Shop    official    said.    "But it'll
probably  have   warmed  up   by
then.
-     On the bright side, RCMP re-
. ported    only    one accident was
caused by snow on campus.    It
was minor and no  one was  injured.
Author  to  speak
on  city  problem
Dr. John Gottman, author of
"Study of Megalopolis," a survey
of the urbanized area of the
northeastern United States, will
give two lectures at UBC next
week.
He will speak on "The environment common to geography
and politics" in the Frederic
Lasserre building at 2.30 Thursday.
■ Friday at 3.30, Dr. Gottman
will lecture on "Posiscriptum to
Megalopolis" In Forestry and
Geology 100.

A. R. Entrican, former director-general of forestry for New
Zealand, will speak in Bu. 106
on Monday, January 21.
The lecture, on "The influence
of forestry on forest policy and
forest products trade in Australia and New Zealand," will be
the 14th speech made possible by
funds contributed by Dr. H. R.

Engineers to stage
mixer Friday noon
The Redshirts will be rushing
in the Mardis Gras territory this
Friday noon hour when they
hold another mixer.
All campus girls will be admitted free and the Engineers
will pay 25 cents at the stomp
being held in the Brock Lounge.
| If you want to get away for a
weekend o f discussion (and
things), Academic Symposium is
for you.
Discussion will be just that.
And the things? Here's part
of a report from last year's Symposium:
"Between and during talks,
coffee breaks and discussions,
everyone met everyone else,
everyone talked about everything, everyone had fun.
"Saturday evening brought
out a guitar and an impromptu
harmony session set the rocking
chairs (in rustic Island Hall) into
gentle motion.
"Then came discussions, dancing, arguments, singing, discussions, shuffleboard, arguments,
walks along the beach, and more
discussions and arguments.
"The range of topics was unlimited and if mankind's degene
ration didn't attract, one could
easily switch to verbal contemplation of the value of virtue, or
the ends of existentialism, or the
beauties of birth control.
"Saturday night and Sunday
morning became one, and Hansard would have had difficulty
recording all that transpired."
And when it was over:
"It had been a wonderful, stimulating weekend.
"And it would take another
similar outing to fully describe
what each delegate had gained—
if such acquisitions could be expressed in words."
Those who go to this year'.s
(the seventh annual) Symposium
will likely find the same. It is
again being held at Parksville,
Vancouver Island, Feb. 15-17.
About 80 students, 40 faculty
members and 10 Alumni will
board buses outside Brock Hall
at 4.30 ,p.m. that Friday.
When they arrive at Island
Hall there'll be slight chaos
while the committee tries to fit
130 bodies into 129 beds.   -
UBC president Dr. John Macdonald will give the opening address Friday night and a slate of
provocative panels, debates and
talks will take it from there.
Dress for the weekend is
casual.
Cost for the outing is easy,
too. Six dollars pays for transportation to and from campus,
aecommodction  and  food.
All students, except those who
have attended previous Symposia are eligible; faculty and
Alumni receive special invitations.
Application forms are available at the AMS office, graduate
student centre and International
House.
They must be returned to Academic Symposium, Box 1, AMS
office, Brock Hall, by Jan. 26.
Those accepted will be notified
by February 2.
A complete program of this,
year's Symposium will appear in;
The Ubyssey later this week.

We have a question, Mr. Strachan
Mr. Strachan, NDP leader and apologist,
speaks today at noon in Brock.
A suitable sized corps of local supporters
will be there to ask the usual innocuous questions about NDP policy on medicare and socialized car insurance.
But one question to do with NDP probably
will be carefully ignored. So we will ask it.
Where, Mr. Strachan, is the NDP going?
It appears that tihe NDP at present is split
into left wing and (relatively speaking) right
wing factions. The left includes the so-called
"Trotskyites." The right, the public relations
men.
The left wing, it seems, also includes idealists, many of the young intellectuals and the
diehard socialists.
The right wing is something like an ultra-
liberal branch of the Liberal party, and Mr.
Strachan seems to fit into this final group.
During the past few months Mr. Strachan
has attempted to play the part of the man from
Madison Ave.
When labor strife began getting hot, and
the NDP's labor backers were good newspaper
copy, Mr. Strachan announced to a Chamber
of Commerce group his party didn't condone
certain labor actions.
A short while later, his party's provincial
executive expelled a group of "Trotskyites"
from the NDP youth movement.
Finally, in the last week, Mr. Strachan has
criticized an MLA, long a member of the CCF,
for taking a trip to Cuba.
Mr. Strachan's and other NDP leaders' statements are doing nothing but convincing the
electorate that the NDP is more confused than
the voters about what the pary is or hopes to
be.
The CCF, although it never formed a federal government, was a strong national party
built purely on a foundation of socialism.
NDP, today, is a confusing muddle of pro
and anti-labor, middle of the road socialism,
not too radical idealism and aging politicians
wishing they were in office.
Many of those who have admired the CCF
and supported tihe NDP are asking themselves
if the type of thinking which Mr. Strachan apparently represents is the type of party they
want to support. They see the gap between socialism and liberalism rapidly closing.
Again, Mr. Strachan, we ask where the
NDP is going.
The middle of the road is bloody crowded.
Let's give the students a break
Swinging into second term, it is again time
to ask the administration to consider a midterm break.
In case they haven't seen a calendar, we
point out that there will be no respite from
the classes which began last Monday" until
April 12 (one week before exams begin) which
is Good Friday.
Between now and then there will be no
holidays.
Other universities are recognizing that such
a period without a holiday is tiring on both
student and professor and above all senseless.
We suggest it's about time UBC thought
the same.
The ideal time for a mid-term break would
be about the first of March. It should be a
week, but even three or four days without
lectures would suffice.
How would such a break affect lecture
time?
If a week was taken, it would probably
require some extension on the term.
But if three or four days were taken, we
suggest no extension of the term would be required. A four-day break would mean that
most students would miss two lecture periods
in each course. Students who now miss a few
lectures simply because they are tired, or behind in tiheir studies, would not be going further behind and would have the time off they
require.
And the professors and lecturers who take
periodic days off through the term—usually
unannounced so that their students cannot
share in the benefits—would be able to have
their days off doing no harm to the students.
Or   in   many   courses  they   could   simply
speed up the presentation of their material.
It's time the students got a break.

German student free to learn all or nothing
The wriier is a former
University of B. C. student
who is spending a year at the
University of Hamburg as a
World University Service exchange scholar.
By BOB  TAYLOR
HAMBURG — Student life at
any university is apt to be hectic, but the existence of a foreign student in a city of nearly
two million people verges at
first on the chaotic.
But after having lived in
Hamburg, and attended lectures for several weeks, I find
that the dust has cleared a little
and that I can report on student
life here — the first impressions of a student who suddenly finds himself "alien" and
speaking with an accent!
•    •    •
Although many of its departments were established in the
early nineteenth century, the
University of Hamburg was
founded in 1919, which makes
it. in a sense, younger than
UBC. Because of an enrollment of 13,000 students, and
because every office in Hamburg seems to be understaffed,
registration is just as complicated as at UBC, and, I'm
proud to add, rather less efficient.
During the registration ordeal, the foreigner learns about
"akademische Freiheit," academic freedom, which means
that, within his field of study,
the German student can choose
any course to take at any time
during his four undergraduate
years; in most faculties (with
the exception of Medicine)
there are no "prerequisites,"
as, for example, History 200,
or English 200 or Psychology
100, prior to further study in
these fields.
•    •    •
The German high school system is of such rigour that there
is usually no need to review
anything in university, and the
"freshman" can take a course
that in B. C. would be considered third or fourth year material.
In the Philosophische Fakul-
tat (Arts), there are a host of
courses and seminars to choose
from, and you do not "sign up"
but enter the courses you intend to follow in your "study-
book," which, like everything
else you possess, is duly stamped by the powers that be —
at the end of your four years
(and not usually before) you
take a comprehensive examination.
Foreign students (particularly those from more vigorously
regimented systems) and many
Germans complain of a sense of
purposelessness    and    tend to
fall into bad study habits —
leaving everything until the
end, and having in the meantime, "viel Spass" (lots of fun).
Nevertheless, the concluding
exam finally raises its ugly
head, and, although it can be
postponed, it must be passed.
The system has at least two
general advantages — the student who completes his four
years and survives the exam
has developed a certain self-
discipline and has, I venture to
say, more knowledge of his
subject than a UBC graduate
with a BA; our system tends to
breed crammers who stuff just
enough in to make a plump intellectual appearance, slimming
off the unnecessary pounds of
knowledge after the exam is
endured. I speak from experi • -
ence!
•    •    •
But it is practically impossible to cram four years work
into one human brain in two or
three months.
Except for seminars, there is
in the Arts faculty less contact
between student and professor
in Hamburg than in Vancouver;
in part, this is due to the "akademische Freheit", in which
"tuum est" really means "it's
up to you"; but it is also due to
the method of delivering lectures.
The professor enters the
classroom, the students rap on
their desks, the prof, delivers
his material — no questions are
asked, no objections made —
he finishes, the students rap
again, and it is over.
It is probably the greater

The German student's life
seems harder than the Canadian student's, in spite of the
greater freedom the former enjoys. There is no parking problem at the University of Hamburg — the students simply
cannot afford cars; many of
them have bicycles or, if they
are truly affluent, motor scooters, but most commute by bus
or streetcar, and often as much
as two hours a day are spent
just travelling to and from college; a common sight is the
student on the streetcar, one
hand clutching the rail, the
other grasping a book he is
reading.
Fortunately, students can
travel for prices that would
give the B. C. Electric short
circuits; there are corresponding price reductions- for theatres and concerts, and a special
store at the university sells
academic supplies, clothes, and
groceries at reduced rates.
Because their high school
period is longer than ours, and
because many have to work a
few years before they can afford college, the students are
older than Canadians at a similar college level; their clothes
(but not their spirits) are correspondingly more conserve
tive; a UBC engineer's jacket
would be greeted here with incredulous stares.
Many of the women wear
slacks (the short skirt is strictly
a summer phenomenon in chilly Hamburg), and most of
them wear no makeup — an
astonishing number, however,
manage to look attractive.
•    •    •
There are about 800 foreign
students, from, for example,
Argentina, Indonesia, Scandinavia and Yugoslavia. The 11
student residences offer rooms
for only a small number of
Kommilitonen, so most live in
private homes or in single
rooms, and, needless to say, a
housing problem exists.
The university offers two
good hot meals a day, for about
25 cents each —the queue often
stretches into the street, but a
compensation is the student
bar. Tuesday, January 15, 1963.
THE      UBYSSEY
Marriage minded males might
manage matrimony in Mexico
Page 5
By MIKE GRENBY
They come from a country
where females outnumber
males seven to one.
So naturally the chief interest of the eight girls in the
party of 12 Mexican students
now visiting UBC is men.
The girls don't admit this in
so many words, but when I
started to ask "What age do
you. . ." (I was going to say
"start university"), one of the
girls interrupted with " . . .
get married?"
Sponsored by Experiment in
" International Living and the
local World University Service
committee, the group arrived
in Vancouver Sunday night
after spending a month in Seattle living with private families.
Monday morning at UBC
they attended a lecture in political science and spent the rest
of the day touring-campus.
One of the major differences
the group has noticed in more
northern American life is the
liberty of girls.
,; i *  *  •
"The girls here have so much
more freedom, particularly
with boys," said Maria de los
Angelos Ruiz, a 22-year-old
, hazel-eyed brunette from Vera
Cruz.
"Sometimes this is a good
thing but it certainly is different from home."
In Mexico, Maria explained,
girls cannot go on single dates
alone until they are married.
"Either we must have a cha-
perone or we must go in groups
of two or three couples," she
said.
Consuelo Ibarra, 21, thought
American and Canadian boys
were "cute and nice" but not
particularly polite.
"And your parties are terrible," she complained. "Nobody dances: they just sit
around, talk and drink."
None of the girls smoke.
"We don't enjoy it and our
parents don't like it," said Me-
lada Bazant, who at 17, is the
youngest in the group.
Malada has just completed
high school where she took
courses in English, Psychology,
Ethics, Aesthetics, French,
Mexican Literature and Universal Literature.
She plans to go to university
in Mexico City and eventually
teach English.
The group, whose ages range
from 17 to 27, is led by Agus-
tin Bertheau, 23, of Puella
City, 60 miles from Mexico
City.
•   •    *
Cost to each member for the
two-month tour is $436.
The Mexicans, who are staying at YTC, will remain on until Friday when they'll leave on
a visit to the Interior. They will
return in time to attend a performance of the Vancouver
Symphony next Monday.

Still is still
not standing
still-they say
By KAREN MACCONNACH1E
Yes we do, but no, we don't.
That's what the Engineers are
Saying about the portable still
they are allegedly harboring.
Steve Whitelaw, president of
the second year Engineers, said-
"What do you expect us to say?"
"We would have the authorities down our necks and it would
be confiscated."
Rumor had it that the still
(which they don't have) was m
the basement of the Engineering
Building next to a chimney.
But the gentlemen in the EUS
office maintained that the nonexistent still had been moved.
"Over to the chemical engineering building," one announced. "They know more about it."
The EUS office smelled like n
brewery.
Two inconspicuous fire extinguishers in the corner werp
Eilled with what most people
call mash and beer bottles littered the room.
But they still don't have a still
— they say.
Profs start
liberty group
If your freedom is being
threatened, you now have a
group of UBC professors and interested citizens to defend you.
The new B. C. Civil Liberties
Union is an outgrowth of a civil
liberties committee formed last
spring when a group of leaders
of the Sons of Freedom Douk-
obor Sect was charged with conspiracy to intimidate the Cana-
j dian Parliament.
The charges were dismissed,
but the group went on to form
the B. C. Civil liberties Association at a meeting at International House December 9.
"The Association was formed
with the object of protecting
civil liberties in general," says
Dr. Werner Cohn, sociology professor, and one of the 15 Directors elected at the meeting.
Specific concerns have not yet
been determined, but it is likelv
the group will deal with the rip
fense of minority groups such *\s
Ihe Sons of Freedom, and thp
Canadian Indians
The Association will be concerned with the rights of all
citizens, Cohn said.

UWO leftists
form group
LONDON (CUP)— Two third-
year University of Western Ontario students have announced
plans to form a Communist political club on the campus.
A story in the UWO student
paper, The Gazette, which did
not state the students' names,
quotes them as saying the purpose of the group will be to instill a love of Canada in Canadians.
"It strikes us as appalling that
many students do not--seem in
the least concerned with the fact
that the U.S. is gradually taking
us over through economic encroachment.
"Canada must stand on her
own two feet. She must resist
the U.S. imperialist policies —
the results of which are seen
everywhere," they said.
The two have challenged
Western students to rally behind
the new party.
"What Canada needs is more
extremists," they claim. "If university students don't think, who
will?"
A spokesman for the new
group said they hope to be organized by next fall.
(UBC already has a campus
Communist organization.)

Hockey team on rampage;
thumps Powell River 9-1
By GEORGE RAILTON
The UBC Thunder birds
hockey team changed from
luke-warm to hot this weekend
as they took a 13-5 total point
victory from the Powell River
Regals.
The two game exhibition series between the Birds and
the Regals was played for the
Black Ball Cup, an award
which used to be presented to
the winner of the now defunct
Pacific  Coast Hockey League.
Friday night the game ended
in a 4-4 tie.
Saturday    night    the    Birds
turned red. hot as they trimmed
the tired regals 9-1.
•   *   *
UBC's better physical condition gave them the victory in
the second game. This was the
first back-to-back series the
Regals had played this year,
and they found the going pretty tough.
Friday Regals literally
fought their way to the 4-4 tie.
The referees handed out 14
penalties for everything from
high sticking to fighting.
Birds were never behind in
the series although Friday the
Regals came back to tie the
Thunderbirds three times.
Late in the first period Terry
O'Malley and Dave Chambers
drove back-to-back goals to put
the Birds in the lead. Powell
River came back in the second
period with two unanswered
goals.
• •    •
Each team scraped up two
goals in the final period. Regals
scored their last with only 30
seconds  of   playing  time   left.
Mickey McDowell and Bob
Parker were the Birds' other
scorers.
Saturday, new line combinations and a worn-out opponent let the Birds take and hold
the lead from the opening
period.
• •    *
It was a very tired group of
Regals that wandered into the
dressing room after the first
period, four  goals behind.
Parker and Stu Gibbs each
racked   up    two   goals   while
singles were scored by Peter
Kelly, McDowell, Gary Uns-
worth, Barry McKenzie and
Mike Smith.
This weekend the Birds
travel to Saskatoon for their
first league game.
Next Monday the Birds meet
the Vancouver Canucks in Kerrisdale   Arena.
Saturday night the Thunderbirds were beaten 68-66, in overtime, by a fired-up team from
Calgary.
It was only the Birds' second
loss in three seasons of conference play.
Friday night the Birds beat
the Dinosaurs 73-68.
While Saturday's game was
not good basketball, it provided
1 he fans—especially those who
were rooting for Calgary—with
lots of excitement.
TIE GAME
With the score 62-60 for the
'! hunderbirds, and only five seconds left in the game, Calgary's
-vit Lefroy, a second string
?uard, tipped through the tying
casket, forcing the game into
overtime.
And with only seven seconds
kit in the overtime'period, the
}irds had possession of the ball,
Erickson scored, however, and
the crowd let out a sigh of relief,
Sure that the game would go
into  a  second  overtime  period.
But Calgary was not through.
WINS GAME
ouihustled by the shorter Calgary team.
"Harris and Babke hurt us
most," Mullins said. "That Harris is a beautiful basketball
player."
Harris, who played with the
Canadian champion Lethbridge
Broders last year, fouled out of
the game with 11:37 left, but not
before he had shown the fans
some of the best ball-handling
they had ever seen.
Harris scored 17 points in Fri-
riay's game, and added 13 more
in the second game.
Thunderbirds shot 53 percent
in the first game, and 37 in the
second, but each night the Calgary team shot a greater number of shots..-

Imperial Cup
Soccer team wins
By DANNY  STOFFMAN
The success story of UBC's soccer Thunderbirds continued
' Saturday as they defeated
home the Imperial Cup.
The hard-fought contest was
iplayed before a large crowd at
Callister Park. It was Birds'
fifth straight victory in the Imperial    Cup    series    and   their
, twelfth game without defeat.
The Imperial Cup is awarded
annually to the winner of a five-
fame sudden death series involving a.ll teams in the Mainland
• League's six divisions. This
year's team is the second from
fjBC to win the trophy. The
Birds of the 1952 season were
the first winners.
JINGLE GOAL
Only goal of the game came
ju'jt eight minutes before the
fasllf. Playing-coach Joe John-
Son, the left fullback, scored
from thirty yards out on a pass
|rom Dewiss Brown. The bail
bounced off the underside of the
crossbar, evading Mt. Pleasant
.goalie, Terry Oseman.
Birds started badly, unable to
Settle down for the first fifteen
minutes. "We were over anxious," said Johnson. "There is
§lways a certain tenseness about
f Cup final. But it was the same
for M't. Pleasant. We both miss-
fd too many chances."
^CRAPPY GAME
Play was greatly influenced
by field, conditions. The bone-
bard ground made it difficult for
Pirds to exercise their usual ball
control. "It meant a lot of
hasty kicking," said Johnson,"
-— a scrappy game from a technical point of view, but exciting
for the fans."
Birds improved steadily in the
second half, dominating most of
the play. The UBC goal was
seldom in danger.
Birds resume league play next
Saturday when they meet fourth

NFCUS hits
travel block
OTTAWA (CUP) — The National Federation of Canadian
University Students has officially protested a recent ruling by
the International Air Transportation Association which makes
the federation ineligible for
group fare flight reductions.
In separate letters to both
IATA and Canada's Air Transport Board — the governing
body as far as Canadian carriers
are concerned — NFCUS president Stewart Goodings protests
the ruling which states organizations with a membership exceed
ing 20,000 are no longer eligible
for the group reductions.
"The National Federation of
Canadian University Students
regards travel as an essential element of education. To this end
our travel department has been
endeavoring over the last 10
years to promote travel opportunities among Canadian University students. . .", the statement said:
"The effect of this new regulation will be to deny the opportunity of air travel to a large number of university students. The
immediate loss to airline companies is considerable, but the long
term effects of prejudicing potential travellers against air travel are inestimable."
In his letter to the transport
board, Goodings asks the board
to use its influence to reverse
the IATA ruling or to have
NFCUS excepted from the regulation.
The board must approve the
IATA ruling before it becomes
law in Canada.
