The Academic Activities Committee lost $1,578 this
year, according to an AMS watchdog committee investigating AAC operations.
The loss was revealed Monday by AMS activities Co-ordinator Graeme Vance and
Arts president Chas Pentland.

AMS to take over AAC in February, after charges the joint

The Ubyssey will have a
special section about the
meeting in Thursday's paper.
Quorum is 1,500 students.
A mob of 2,000 crashed a dance in the Armory Saturday
night and caused at least $300 damage.
As many as 3,500 jam-packed
the dance at peak times.
Student sponsors, Ken Der-
cole, Comm. II, and Allen Bon-
nell, Agriculture III, charged
police didn't give adequate protection.
"They weren't there during
the first hour or so when we
needed them the most," Der-
cole charged.
The crowd began breaking
in before police, who had been
asked to come earlier, arrived,
he said.
The crowd smashed windows
and swarmed in through washrooms and back entrances.
One group broke windows in
the Navy office to enter the
dance but found the inside door
The frustrated gang spilled
liquid on a rug and damaged a
bulletin board, table and typewriter.
The crowd inside the smoke-
filled dance hall, smashed more
than a dozen windows.

Cost of repairs to the coat
racks was estimated by Building and Grounds at about $150

spokesman said the crowd appeared to be mostly high school
kids and downtown hoods.
He said many dancers seemed very intoxicated.
RCMP arrested a 20-year-old
UBC student for drunkenness.
"The line-up for the dance
was packed five deep from the
entrance back almost to International House," Dercole said.
"About 8,000 people tried to
get to the dance," Dercole said.
"We estimated 3,000 or 4,000
in cars were turned back by
the university patrol," Dercole
The sponsors brought in a
Seattle recording group at a
cost of $800.
"The dance was advertised
too much," Dercole said.
Including posters and Ubyssey ads, there were 74 ads on
a downtown rock and roll radio station.
"They charged us 15 per
cent of the profits, which turned out to be $250," Dercole
"We originally wanted Radsoc to sponsor the dance but
they wouldn't accept the idea,"
he said.
(Both Dercole and Bonnell
are Radsoc members.)
"The AMS told us the president of the club sponsoring the
dance would be responsible for
any losses involved," Dercole
"I don't think we will ever
be able to stage a dance on
campus again," he said.

Makes history
Mt. Robson climb
a first for prof
A UBC professor was one of
five men who made B.C. mountaineering history last week.
Dr. Leif-Norman Patterson
of the math department was a
member of a climbing party
that made the first winter ascent of Mount Robson, the
highest peak in the Canadian
Rockies at 12,972 feet.
With Patterson were Alex
Bertulis, Fred Beckey, Tom
Stewart and Eric Bjornstad, all
from Seattle.
• *    •
Patterson skied to Berg Lake
on Mt. Robson, which is approximately 5,000 feet above
sea-level. The others snow-
shoed in.
Patterson and Bertulis
climbed directly up the Tumbling glacier which took them to
the 8,500-foot level where they
pitched camp.
In the morning they considered climbing the north face
of the mountain which has
been climbed only once before,
in summer, but after inspecting
the face they decided to take
the usual route up the east
"The climbing of the north
face is a major project," Patterson said. "It would take
more time than we had."
• •    •
"The face is covered almost
entirely by ice and the last bit
is rock. I would like to try it
sometime," he said.
After leaving most of their
gear at the 8,500-foot level they
climbed to about 11,00-feet
where they bivouacked in the
"It was a slightly cold night
with little sleeping gear for the
two of us," Patterson said.
In the morning they climbed
to the top. "We had to cut steps
for several rope lengths," he
said. The rope they used was
300 feet long.
After the climb all members
of the team reassembled at the
base of the east face for the
trip home.
"It might >be an idea to make
the area around Mount Robson
a national park. It is very beautiful and not terribly inaccessible by B.C. standards," said

A proposal for a multimillion-dollar light industrial
research development on university lands is expected to
be presented in the B.C. Legislature this week.
Plans for the centre are
supposed to be similar to the
Stanford Research Institute
in Palo Alto, Calif, where
laboratories have been set
up by industry research.

Grad class picks officers;
gardens proposed for gift
Only 400 of the 2,200 graduating students attended the
grad class meeting Friday.
The grad class elected Grad Studies dean Ian McTaggart-Cowan honorary president and Dorothy Somerset, of
the theatre department, honorary vice-president.
Proposals for the grad class gift to the university included a memorial garden for either George Cunningham
or Dean Neagele, replacing the university gates, paintings
for Brock, student loans, an alumni chronicle.
A furnished room for SUB, books for the library, a
fountain near the engineering buildings, outside seating
and the Three Universities fund.

symposium, but no one in Victoria knows anything of such
an arrangement and there is
no record of any agreement in
AAC files said Vance.
"There might be $500 to 600
outstanding," he said.
Vance said there seemed to
be no financial control whatever in the committee's affairs.
The report by Vance and
Pentland was presented to
council Monday night.
Also presented to council
was a report by ex-AAC chairman Mike Coleman. Coleman
made the recommendation that
next year the committee's program be re-evaluated and held
to four symposiums with a
grant made by AMS not to exceed $2,000.
Vance said this year's deficit
will not affect next year's committee and will be paid from
the AMS surplus.

Bookstore officials like the faculty committee report on

Bookstore manager John
Hunter said Monday he approved of the report, but said
the bookstore's biggest problem was lack of space.
The report, which rapped
administration refusals to release bookstore accounting figures to the committee recommended changes in the financing and function of the bookstore.
Hunter said he would like
to have a good trade book section and said he thinks there
is a place for a portable typewriter service.

Rights workers
plead for aid
Three civil rights workers Monday called for Canadian
assistance in the fight against racial discrimination in the
United States.
Student Non - Violent Coordinating Committtee members Karen Stockham and
Phillip Lapansky, and UBC
arts student John Dilday, formerly of Little Rock, Arkansas,
appealed to more than 1,000
students at a noon-hour rally
at the Cairn.
The three outlined examples
of discriminatory practices
used by southern political
power to frustrate Negro civil
rights drives, and called on
UBC students to aid SNCC's
cause by donations and demonstrations.
Miss Stockham, Northwest
co-ordinator of SNCC, said
Mississippi and Alabama have
become police states whose injustices should be brought to
the attention of the world.
"But what do we have — a
president who does things
only when politically expedient, and leaders like Martin
Luther King who have lost
their effectiveness," she said.
"Negroes are to an increasing extent taking things into
their own hands—witness Sel-
ma—as they feel they have to
solve their problems by themselves."
Lapsansky said Negroes in
Mississippi were determined
to "break the state" which is
determinedly trying to keep
the Negro impoverished and
"In Mississippi, when sheer
brutality fails to keep the
Negro from trying to register
to vote the most frustrating
methods imaginable are used to
keep him from qualifying.
"One section of the test requires an applicant to interpret
one section of the Mississippi
constitution, with a white state
official the sole judge of the
interpretation. Needless to
say, a Negro never passes."
A silver collection during
the rally raised $192.41, which
will be donated to SNCC.

Selma authorities is scheduled

had a 77 per cent response
during its first week.
The survey is designed to

students in pre-medicine and

$2 cheque for completing the
survey is responsible for the
response alone."

"Several students have
said they would have filled out
the questionnaire anyway,"

"We've being trying to find
those people who haven't come

"A lot of students who

out the forms in Wes. 300 during the week," she said.
Pressure gets slacker
Totem sales
Totem '65 sales have passed
the three-quarter mark, Totem
editor Scott Mclntyre reported
"The yearbook is selling
fantastically well," he said.
The books are available at
the College Shop, AMS office
and the bookstore.
First the administration abolished obligatory physical education.
"Great," everyone said as they dragged
themselves to their classrooms, breathlessly collapsing in their seats.
"We won't have to waste our precious
time developing our bodies and can devote ourselves to pure study," they said.
•     •     •
Then the D and D (Discipline and Discovery) report proposed doing away with
Christmas and final exams up to third
year on the grounds that students get too
nervous writing them and that means
they cannot possibly give an accurate representation of their knowledge.
Let's take a closer look at what students
feel about this matter.
The final exams loom less than four
weeks off, and with each passing day
tension for UBC students is steadily
Spring is springing; yet not many students are in the right spirit.
Only last Friday I saw a couple lying
on the grass in front of the library—both
worried over their exams.
The boys, in fact, was so nervous he
steadied himself by repeatedly squeezing
the girl's arms and making other gestures
characteristic of a troubled mind.
Evidently the very thought of exams
was having a disastrous effect on him.

way and include fourth year students as

Civil rights
UBC student support for the civil rights movement
in Selma, Alabama, should be encouraged.
It should be encouraged and pursued in a manner
similar to the rally that collected $192 for civil rights
work Monday.
Activity of this type within Canada is of more benefit
than actively working in the South.
To the suspicious Southern mind, foreign students
are more unwelcome than intruders into the South from
other parts of the U.S.
And running amuck of authorities, even when they
are Southerners with their own peculiar brand of
justice, poses problems for re-entry into the U.S.
Some will say any help from Canadians is unwarranted.
Others will point to our bicultural and bilingual
problems, or those of the second-class status of the
Indian and ask us to houseclean first.
Perhaps the day will come when Canadian students
can become enthused enough to work as diligently as
the U.S. civil lighters on our problems.
But right now the civil rights movement needs support—oil it can get in moral and monetary terms.
There must be some basic issues, such as those of
the right to vote and discrimination, which cross international boundaries and become our immediate problems
as well.
A challenge
This year's graduating class has been offered a challenging proposal.
Instead of giving a gift solely to UBC, it has been
suggested that the class make a cash donation to the
Three Universities Fund.
In short, the class of '65 will be giving $7,000 to the
fund, if the proposal is accepted.
By contributing to the fund students would show
the taxpayer that they are vitally aware that government and other sources simply aren't giving the university enough money.
And while the student shouldn't be expected to foot
much more of the province's educational bill such a
gesture would indicate students are behind the drive—
in spirit and in cash.
If some students are choked up at the thought of
providing money which wouldn't only help UBC but
also Victoria and Simon Fraser there's a solution here,
Money donated to the fund drive can be allocated to
specific institutions.
But why not go whole-hog and just turn over the
money to the fund with no conditions attached?
It would be a simple, and dramatic, indication that
the class of '65 realizes money for education is short
in B.C. and where possible students are willing to help.
And remember, money for the Three Universities
fund is matched dollar-for-dollar by premier Bennett's

Lab problems
Editor, The Ubyssey:
I would like to add my
voice to the recent complaints
about the quality of lab instruction at this university.
In the middle of a Chem 102
lab. I tried (along with six
other students) to find a lab
We discovered that all five
of the instructors assigned to
our section had disappeared.
Presumably they were having
coffee together.
They were absent, leaving
the lab wholly unattended,
for over half an hour. During
the long wait, several more
students required equipment
or reagents which they were
unable to obtain because
there was no-one in attendance.
As a result, many of us did
not have time to complete our
experiments, or had to rush
through them in order to finish. I think this is grossly unfair to students.
I suggest that in future the
instructors take shorter coffee breaks, and take them in
turns instead of all at once.

Bookstore policy
Editor, The Ubyssey:
Ubyssey is to be congratulated  on  drawing the  atten-
arid   act
tion of students to the contents of the Faculty Association's Bookstore Committee
report, since for academic
reasons a good bookstore is
essential to the function of a
University such as this.
It is, however, necessary to
draw attention to one important error of fact in your
story. The committee did not
suggest that the "administration relinquish control over
the bookstore". If the bookstore is to achieve the objectives we set out for it, there is
a need for considerable stock
and capital expansion.
This implies an investment
of university funds, or funds
raised by the university, for
which the responsibility
should rest squarely with the
administration. We suggested
an Advisory Board, not a
Governing Board, with strong
academic representation to
ensure that the bookstore fulfilled an academic purpose.
I feel that if the student
body is to exert an influence
on bookstore policy it should
be in two directions, (a) financial, and (b) academic. If
students are to influence pricing policy, they should look
beyond the bookstore's present policy to the methods of
operation of publishers and
wholesale book distributors.
This is why our report suggested that on pricing matters Mr. Hunter and indeed
the administration have very
little room to manoeuvre.

NEW HAVEN — Liberal
and moderate Republicans
are on the warpath.
Their opponents are not
Democrats, but the "frantic,
frenetic, fanatic" right wingers who captured the 1964
Republican convention in San
The stakes are control of
the party and their own political lives. The outcome is
still in doubt.
Two leaders in the battle,
senators Thomas Kuchel of
California and Hugh Scott of
Pennsylvania, were at Yale
this week looking for recruits.
•   •   •
They were both active in
the too-little and too-late attempt to block the nomination
of GOP presidential candidate Barry Goldwater at the
convention. Kuchel backed
Liberal governor Nelson
Rockefeller and Scott was
campaign manager for William Scranton.
Goldwater delegates booed
Scott when he tried to persuade the GOP platform committee to include clauses denouncing radical right groups
and supporting civil rights.
Kuchel has been a frequent
target of Birchers, Minute-
men and other kooks in California and elsewhere.
Richard Simeon is a former UBC student and a former
Ubyssey assistant city editor.
He is doing graduate work
in political science at Yale
on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship.
Both Senators survived the
1964 election debacle, but
they cannot forgive the Gold-
water conservatives who
gained control of the party,
nominated their man, repudiated past Republican policy
on foreign policy and civil
rights, and led the party to
the worst election defeat ever
suffered by a major party.
Goldwater and Miller were
not the only ones to bite the
dust — more than 500 other
Republicans at state and national levels lost their seats
in the Johnson sweep. Scott
is one of the few survivors.
Kuchel was not up for reelection, but there is doubt he
would have won if he had
•   •   •
Moderates in the party say
they are not going to let it
happen again. Goldwater is
back on the ranch in Arizona
and the moderates have ousted his protege Dean Burch
from the chairmanship of the
Republican national committee.
But that's just the beginning. Goldwaterites, often
supported by John Birchers
and other radicals, still control most of the grass-roots
strength  of  the  party.  They
. . . big mistake
are not going to be easy to
root out.
And time is short. Mid-term
Congressional elections are
less than two years away.
The bitterness and resentment of moderates for the
Goldwaterites runs deep.
"They are the frustrated
irreconcilables who infiltrated
the ranks of the respectable
conservatives," said Scott.
"And they are the people who
a resurgent GOP must relegate to their frustrations.
• •    •
"We must take the road
back from lunacy — and from
San Francisco, which was a
symbol of that lunacy. I am
going to travel throughout
the country cutting off all the
radical fringes I see — anytime, anyplace, anywhere."
That's tough talk from a
professional politician who
has been a member of Congress for 20 years, a former
chairman of the national committee and who was Eisenhower's Southern campaign
manager in 1952 — especially
when he is talking about
members of his own party.
Kuchel, a Senator for 13
years, said: "I regret that my
party has turned its back on
most of the decent things it
has stood for since the time
of Lincoln."
• •    •
The 1964 convention was a
revolt of the rank and file
against the traditional party
leadership of such men as
Kuchel and Scott.
While the leaders slept,
small groups all over the
country took over local and
state conventions, nominating
Goldwater delegates for the
national convention. The
Goldwater nomination was
sewn up long before the convention began.
Said Scott: "The tactics of
the right wing were the tactics of the Judas goats who
led the herd to slaughter.
"We are not going to let
them do it again."
He described the tactics of
the radical righters — "proto-
fascists" was his word — in
Washington, New Mexico and
many other states. He told of
Minutemen distributing material  at GOP  meetings.
"Rocky (Nelson Rockefeller)
the International Socialist,"
and "The Soft on Communism Racket of Richard Nixon", were typical titles.
At one meeting, he said, a
speaker charged that Eisenhower and Kennedy were
Communists, urged the impeachment of Supreme Court
Justice Earl Warren, called
the Kennedy assassination o
CIA plot carried out on orders from Moscow and alleged
that Defense Secretary Robert McNamara had troops out
practising for the Kennedy
funeral a week before the
"And 1,300 people stood
up and cheered," said Scott.
Seldom before had such extremist groups come so close
to power.
Scott and Kuchel want the
GOP to get back on the road
o f "Progressive - Conservatism" — though not of the
Diefenbaker variety. They see
themselves as the responsible
But their problem is that
they approve of almost all
the things the Johnson administration is doing. "The Johnson programs are also the Re-

Reps beat Birds
for Rugger Cup
UBC   rugby  Thunderbirds   were   trounced   24-8   by   a
powerful Vancouver Reps side in an exciting McKechnie
Cup final Saturday at Varsity Stadium.
Upwards  of  600  spectators
IN RUGBY ACTION Saturday at Varsity Sta dium  UBC's 'Birds lost 24-8 to an all-star
Vancouver side.   The game was the final  match  in  the McKechnie  Cup  playdowns.
Rugby - - a UBC tradition
saw the Reps dominate play in
the first half, with the Birds
unable to muster an effective

'Birds were down 16-0 at
the half, and their plan of outrunning the supposedly more
poorly conditioned Reps failed.
Instead of running with the
ball in the second half, the
Vancouver players kept kicking to touch and slowing the
pace. But play throughout the
game was wide - open and
The experienced Vancouver
players kept UBC off-balance

about ten minutes in the second half. Bob Hilton and Keith
Watson scored tries for UBC,

a convert.

UBC's backs had the ball

did very poorly in the loose
play, and this was a major
factor in the loss.
What will probably be the
best rugby action in B.C. this
year, the World Cup games,
can be seen Thursday at 1 p.m.
at Varsity stadium and again
on Saturday:*
Rugby has an association
with UBC, of longer standing,
probably, than any other sport.
It was played when the University occupied the Fairview
site, and even before that, was
played by McGill University in
Vancouver. Through the years,
the Rugby Team has consistently been UBC's most successful team.
UBC competes in several
competitions, but undoubtedly
the oldest is that of the McKechnie Cup. The Cup was
donated in 1896 by Dr. McKechnie, a former Chancellor
of this University; and it is
generally accepted that it is
the oldest trophy in B.C., if not
all Canadian Sport.
Since the war, the teams in
this competition have been
UBC and representative teams
from each of Vancouver, the
North Shore and Victoria.
Though accurate records are
difficult to come by, it appears
that UBC has won the Cup 18
times. One of the more famous
victories was that of 1928. A
split   with  Vancouver   in   the
two scheduled games, necessitated a playoff to determine
the Cup winner. The UBC
team, coached by Jack Tyrr-
whitt, and including the former Minister of Fisheries, James
Sinclair, played superb Rugby,
and won the Cup. Following
the final whistle, the team was
carried off the field by their
exuberant supporters, followed

by a downtown parade and
night of celebration. It seems
doubtful that such enthusiasm
could arise over any University sport nowadays. Another
victorious Cup team of note
was that of 1938, coached by
Capt. A. G. Dobbie. When UBC
went to play Victoria in the
final, a boat was chartered,
and at least 500 out of a campus enrollment of 2,500, accompanied the team.
A further remark of note

awarded in his name, which is
given annually to the player

who best exemplifies the qualities of leadership, sportsman-
ship and playing ability shown
by McPhee.
Besides the McKechnie Cup,
UBC also competes in the inter-
club competition with the
other members of the Vancouver Rugby Union for the Millar
Cup. UBC has won this Cup
many times, being undefeated
in t^e competition in 1923-4
and from 1944 through 1949.
In the Millar Cup this year,
the Birds, under new coach
Brian Wightman, lost but one
game, a 19-17 defeat to the

the Cup. A notable victory was
a 16-8 win over the 'Kats' Club,
a team which for five years
had seemed virtually unconquerable.

Ubyssey Sports Editor
After waiting in excited anticipation for almost two
years my restless readers are about to be rewarded.
In this the first of two columns on the long standing, but
never solved problem of extra-mural athletics at our campus,
I am revealing the Reamsbottom critique on UBC sports.
The debate goes on about the status of UBC sport but there
are indications that the argument on the state of athletics at
UBC is receding more and more into indifference.
The meagre attendance at sporting events indicates few students are interested, and the views of faculty and alumni are
rarely heard.
UBC sport wavers between the conflicting philosophies
we have absorbed from the English and American concepts
of how games should be played. While both approaches have
their points it is rather tough to be caught between.
Oxford has a fine rowing crew and a rugby team; but
doesn't have to worry about football or baseball. U. of Toronto supports football and basketball; but pays no attention
to rugby or soccer.
A survey taken among Canadian colleges in January this
year shows UBC to have the most extensive program in the
country; one which includes 27 extra-mural sports.
The emphasis on participation means that energy, attention
and finance is spread out and dissipated on an astonishing
number of sports.
And that's not all
Perhaps even more restricting than the number of sports
is the conflict between the contrasting philosophies of English
and American sport. At UBC we find ourselves in the position
of trying to follow the English "the games the thing" approach, while competing with opponents who stress victory
as the all-important goal.
Our athletes, who are awarded no concessions for practice
time or otherwise, for entertaining their fellow students in
the Stadium, Gym or Arena, compete against opponents who
are helped to put every effort possible into winning.
This is the principal problem, how to reconcile the two
• •       •
There   are   other   problems   such   as   competition   with
highly publicized professional teams for the attention of
the public.
There is the geography factor which leaves UBC isolated
500 miles from the nearest Canadian university.
The main reason UBC pulled out of the Evergreen conference six years ago was the belief of athletic officials that students are not interested in games against small American
schools. But there was no improvement when we entered the
Western Canadian League. The won-lost record improved but
interest did not.
This re-introduces another controversial subject; whether
to re-enter the WCIAA or remain independent competing
against a combination of top Canadian and carefully-selected
American College teams.
WCIAA - - pros and cons
The best system, of course, is the present one; but for the
record here are the pros and cons toward re-entering the Canadian League:
• play schools of similar status
• development of Canadian spirit
• students have opportunity to visit Canadian
• national collegiate championships
• heavy traveling expenses
• wide variability in calibre of competition
• eliminates attractive (to the players and
coaches) American competition because
of double round robin schedules which
are mandatory in football and basketball.
• •        •
The present independent schedule provides the ideal arrangement for an extended interim period while other B.C.
Universities, such as Simon Fraser and Victoria Colleges, are
growing to athletic maturity.

in Thursday's Ubyssey.)
