Is fee increase on the way?
By MIKE HORSEY
High fees and huge classes
in first and second year are
supporting University operation in third and fourth
years.
Cost to the University for
support of a first year student
is $200. It costs $300 for every
.second year student.
•      *      *
Both pay the administration
$324  in tuition  fees.
But the University may lose
this lucrative source of funds
if Dr. John Macdonald's plans
for higher education are put
into effect.
The  president   has  publicly
stated he plans to increase
standards of entrance, establish junior colleges and increase the graduate school at
UBC.
All this means the University can probably expect a drastic reduction in the number of
first and second year students—
students who pay the shot for
the rest of the University.
It    also    means     increased'
operating   costs,   as   graduates
are    twice   as    expensive    to
maintain   as   undergraduates.
•      *      *
When this takes place, where
will the additional funds come
from?
No one seems to know.
But the possibility of higher
fees  loom large.
Even now the University
does not receive half the
operating budget that it really
should get, says Dr. Patrick
McGeer, the Alumni's financial
expert on University affairs.
This is the third in a series
of articles on UBC's financial
situation.
As a result, the University
has to skimp on services it can
offer.
The student-teacher ratio is
the worst in Canada: 18 to one.
The adminstration rakes in
the money on huge first and
second-year classes.
In this manner, they make
savings that support the smaller third and fourth year
classes.
•      *      *
Take a sociology class as an
extreme example.
There are 600 students sitting in the auditorium while
the lecturer speaks from a
stage.
The auditorium is dark, cold
and difficult to write in, say
the students.
Occasionally the microphone
the lecturer uses breaks down.
The man who lectures the
class receives a minimum
salary of $7,000 a year as an
assistant professor.
If the sociology class had 10
sections of sixty students each,
it would mean an additional
three or four lecturers—at a
minimum cost of $5,500 a year.
UBC can't afford this.
In first year, 24 per cent of
all students drop out an another 22 per cent are repeating at least one course.
•      •      •
By second year, 42 per cent
of all those starting first year
have dropped out, and 23 per
cent are repeaters.
Students don't like it and
neither do  the   professors.
Where do we go next?

Have you ever wanted to live a sheltered life with a
girl of your choice?
If you have, you can enter
The Ubyssey's fall-out shelter
contest.
All you have to do is say, in
25 words or less, why you would
like to live for two weeks in a
fallout shelter with the girl of
your choice.
Winner will receive two
cases of beer.
His girl will be crowned Miss
50-Megaton Bombshell.
Applications   will   be   judged
by a panel of Ubyssey editors
on the basis of sincerity and
originality.
No previous experience is
necessary.
Miss 50-Megaton Bombshell
will be crowned Nov. 20, and
will be eligible for the Miss
100-Megaton Bombshell contest,
to be held in Moscow next year.
Applications must be received
at The Ubyssey office no later
than 12 noon Monday, Nov. 19.
Exams come
month early
for rowers
Christmas exams come early
this year for UBC's rowers.
And the timetable is & little
confusing. The tests are set for
Nov. 25, 27 and 28 — (that's
Nov. 24, 26 and 27, Vancouver
time.
But the place is the same
on everybody's timetable: Perth,
Australia and the British Empire  Games.
That's where the crews will
show -what they've learned from
Prof. Laurie West during those
Coal Harbor lectures the past
few   months.
* *      *
The  rowers  set out  for  the
examination area early Saturday
morning, flying out of drizzling
rain in Vancouver toward Australia's summer sunshine.
Clad in red blazers with
white piping, grey slacks and
rakish straw hats, they were
inadequately protected from the
November rain.
• •      •
But, if they pass their tests
in Australia, they hope to have
shining gold medals for Christmas presents.
Those gold medals have first
priority for the crew. They want
to show that their heat victory
over Australia at Lucerne was
no fluke—and that their sixth
place finish was.
The crew will have 10 days
to practice before the heats
start. It will take two defeats to
knock a crew out of the race.
UBC's winter sports arena has received a $75,000 shot in
the arm from the federal and provincial governments.
The federal department of labor announced Friday that the
project is eligible for aid under the winter works program.
Student council officials immediately predicted the building
would be ready for operation
by next September.
Under the winter works program, 50 per cent of labor costs
will be paid by the federal government and 25 per cent by the
provincial government. Work
must be completed by April.
START DEC. 1
Student president Doug Stewart said Monday he expects construction to begin about the end
of the month.
The building will contain an
Olympic-size hockey rink, six
curling sheets, seating for 1,750,
a coffee shop, and large dressing
rooms.
But the project appeared
doomed two months ago when
original plans were found to
be too elaborate and new UBC
president Dr. John Macdonald
killed plans for the original site
behind the stadium.
Since then, architects have
been ordered to draw up new
plans, a new site (near C lot)
has been acquired and the $75,-
000 grant has been approved.
The new plans are patterned
oh the Esquimalt sports arena—
which cost $500,000 including
land. This is the amount UBC
is committed to spend on the
arena, with half coming from
the administration and half from
the  students.
JOB  MAY BE  HELPED
Stewart said he expects the
new plans for the building to
be submitted within a few days
and that the contract for construction will be let about Nov.
27.
'Depending on how quickly
we proceed, we will probably
get the full $75,000," Stewart
said.
He said the AMS will apply
for similar grants for the proposed  Student Union Building.
To get the sports centre winter works grant the AMS had
to get a lease on the land where
it is to be constructed.

Alex Jamieson, 1686 West

about. Zeta Beta Tau house,
1674-76   West  Twelfth.
Jamieson alleged noisy parties were held until the early
morning hours and accused persons attending the parties of
yelling and slamming car doors

Earlier this fall, neighbors
complained of noisy drinking
parties at Delta Upsilon frater-

1 IDEAS
J at large
(.      WORKING IN
By  DON  HUME
In my foolish youth, I
looked upon fog as a marvellous and mysterious event
which came in November and
was turned off and on until
February.
. Now, thanks to my university education, I know fog to
be water condensed on dust
particles called nuclei and each
November I rushed forward
with microscope and calipers
madly applying the scientific
method to find the mean size
Of  these  nuclei.
This year, when the fog
eame, I didn't run forward with
microscope and calipers but
walked confidently through
■fhe fog with the knowledge
that fog nuclei were and still
"are,  I believe, very small.
• •      •
That same day, I happened
to be crossing the playing
fields behind Brock When I
sttrtnbled into ;the middle1 of
a football practice.
Sizing up the situation quickly, even hough I had never
won my big block, small block:
or common bloek, I -decided
4o get off the field.
But before getting off the
field a football came my way.
Now to the untrained mind
it might seem best to run, but
as an annual A-card buyer, I
knew I should catch the ball.
This I did.
I also realized that one
should run a/fter catching the
ball. So  I  ran.
I ran off into the fog.
As I ran, I could hear the
cheers of the crowd. I ran
some more.    .
^ Finally I came to two posts
aftd decided this was a good,
p*fece to -have a rsmoke. So I
smoked.
' I'finished my smoke and decided I -would run some more.
So I ran.
Again the   crowd   cheered.
Again I came to two posts
*ahd stopped, but I didn't have
a smoke.
• •     *
I ran in the other direction,
and I might be running to this
day if on my third run the fog
had  not  lifted.
As the fog lifted some football players spotted me and decided to run along. They did
that and more. They knocked
me  down.
I dropped the ball, got up,
brushed off the fog nuclie,
and went on my way.
Now,  whenever I cross  the
playihg fields behind Brock in
fhe  fog,  I  tiretend  I'm  a fog
ihorn.

Test cases won't help those
students who have had their
applications to vote in Point
Grey refused, a Liberal law
student  said  Tuesday.
David Johnsion, former president of the UBC Liberal club
and now an articled student,
said the case NDP lawyer Gordon Dowding was bringing before county court Thursday
would only stir up public opinion and get a little publicity.
"Legally it doesn't hold water
at all," Johnston said.
STILL  MUST  GO
Even if the test case is won,
he said, it would only help
people with an identical set of
facts, and they would have to
go before the registrar of voters
and be judged individually.
Arts student Tim Flegel, 19,
appears in court today to contest his right to vote in the Dec.
17 Point Grey byelection. His
case is considered a test case
for the 3,000 UBC students Who
have applied 'for -the franchise.
The necessary qualification
for voting is residence and the
act defines residence in terms
of intention, Johnston said.
Ydu have to intend'to reside
in Point Grey and be prepared
to swear under oath that you
haVe no intention of returning
to your parents' home, he said.
"Legally speaking, the person
who returns home and works in
the summer is out of liick," he
said.
A general 'election might be
different  in   that   students  who
were staying in the riding would
be disenfranchisedif 'they didn't
get the vote, he added.
"But a byelection Is a little
different," he  said.
A test case that has the registrar's decision reversed does
not automatically give the vote
to everyone else who has been
refused because circumstances
vary and each case has to be
judged individually, Johnston
said.
'Medicare no threat',
says sociology prof
■Government controlled medical  services  are  no  more  of  a
threat to freedom than privately
controlled  ones,  a   social  work
professor said Saturday.
"There is no reason why the
Public Health Department
should be considered more of
a danger than the American
Medical Association," said Prof.
Adrian Marriage, speaking on
"responsibility for medical
care" Saturday.
DANGEROUS
Speaking to about 200 members of the Vancouver Institute
in Bu. 106, Prof. Marriage said
without government intervention there is a danger that
wealth will become the major
criterion of health care.
He said there is no evidence
that government is more inefficient than private groups! "I
am convinced that state medical care is the best solution to
modern health problems," he
said.
Prof. Marriage and Dr. Harry
Watson, past president of the
B.C. Medical Association,
formed j a panel to discuss "responsibility for medical care."
Dr. Watson said the key to
comprehensive medical care
for all Canadians lies in the
extension of voluntary prepaid
plans.
He said a special risk pool
is being established by private
medical insurance groups to
cover persons previously uninsurable.
Prof. Marriage said the proposal to extend private coverage is merely an attempt by
doctors to forestall state medicare schemes.
Dr. Watson said doctor-sponsored prepaid,) plans were started 20 year ago to provide better,
health care, not to prevent
state   medicine.

SUB should be hub of campus
Depth report tells story
of SUB plans, philosophy
This a report in depth on the progress in planning
a proposed student union building made to date by American
planner Porter Butts.
Butts, director of the student building at the University
of Wisconsin, has helped plan nearly 90 student union
buildings. He was hired by UBC last year.
The stories on these pages are based on a 56-page interim
report submitted to the student planning committee by Butts
last week.
The report is based on the 1,564 replies to a questionaire
sent to 2,500 students, 12 per cent of the campus population
made up of 12 per cent of the students in each major campus
group.
One building or lots;
thats SUB question
By   RICHARD   SIMEON
There are serious questions to be answered by UBC students before planning on the proposed Student Union Building
goes ahead. '     7 : ; r
.'The    prime     question,    says I  . A    u"lon    ca™ot   usurvlve
Porter Butts is: "Is. there to be ! ^ncially °r socially when iso
a focal centre, a major hub, of
campus life? Or is the past University practice of dispersal to
continue?"
• It must be decided whether
the SUB will be a general community centre or whether it
will be one more building in
a complex of separate service
units, designed to correct existing deficiencies.
- The answer in almost every
•other university, he says, "has
been to design the union as the
major focal centre of student
life."
Continued decentralization,
along the lines of the Graduate
Student centre, would be prohibitive in cost.
"And it would be moving
counter to the wishes of the
student body, as expressed in
the needs survey, in which students registered overwhelmingly for food facilities and meeting places in a new union as a
major campus centre."
If it is decided to continue
the trend to decentralization,
there is a serious question
whether the union should be
built at all.
lated from major traffic and
food centres.
If we pursue this course,
cautions Butts, "the student
body would have to forego the
rich rewards that would come
from the extensive, convenient
cultural and recreational facilities that accompany a union of
the community  centre  type."
It must be decided what the
future plans for food services
are.
The main dining area should
be part of or adjacent to the
union, if the project is to succeed.
It is also, cheaper to have one
centralized kitchen set-up.
Students want the major dining area to be part of the SUB.
"It is also well established that
the recreation facilities of a
union and meal service go together."
The future of Brock Hall will
also have to be decided.
"If it is to be maintained,
and a sufficiently large new
commissary built, it v/ould be
better and cheaper to add the
new union facilities onto the
present building."

UBC needs social center
says building planner
The proposed student union building will become the social
and cultural centre of campus life, if the recommendations of
planning consultant Porter Butts are followed.
The   planner,   appointed  last
year to. make a survey of student needs and desires, submitted a 56-page report to a student
planning committee  Thursday.
"The union is as normal and
necessary a part of the college
equipment as the gym, the
dormitories and library, reads
the report.
"It concerns itself with the
whole area of student life and
interests outside the classroom,
exploring all the possibilities of
making study and play cooperative  factors  in education."
The SUB will become the
hub of university life, bringing
students from all groups and
faculties together in one community centre.
MEETING PLACE
"If the Alma Mater Society
and the University are to accomplish some of the major
goals in which they are interested, the union must serve certain
specific functions."
The most important function
for the union is to act as the
common meeting ground for all
students to meet. It should be
the campus "living room",
Butts says.
He says all leaders agreed
with one student who said:
"Students want a chance to meet
students from other parts of
the campus and to be identified
with the University as a whole,
not just their own faculty.
"As it is now, there is no
university spirit."
The union would also be a
meeting ground, for men and
women students. "There are
scant provisions for dating on
the  UBC campus.
"There is a great need for
facilities for game rooms, dances, and other dating opportunities.
'Students and faculty need a
common meeting ground to further informal association outside the classroom to create an
intellectual environment outside as well as inside the classroom."
The union should also be the
dining-room of the campus. 'In
many ways this is. the most important function of the building."
The survey taken by Butts
showed that dining facilities are
the most wanted feature of the
union.
The union would also be the
service centre of the campus,
bringing together existing facilities as a convenience for students.
PORTER BUTTS
.... sees social centre
Butts notes that now service
facilities are "badly overcrowded,   scattered   or   non-existent.-"
The union would become the
centre of campus cultural life,
by providing reading rooms,
music rooms,  and art displays.
"When students disappear in.
to the city or into their rooms,
they m is s   identification  with
the university  community."
CAMPUS DIVIDED
The consultant said: "There
is evidence that the UBC campus
is divided in many ways, and
all this is a source of considerable discontent among the students  themselves."

Editorials
Monday was for Vimy and others
If you must thank someone for Monday's
holiday, thank dead men.
Thank the Canadians at Vimy Ridge and
the crews of torpedoed tankers who couldn't
swim to safety through flaming oil in the North
Atlantic. Thank six million Jews. And thank
the human guinea pigs of the mad hag at Bel-
sen, the one who made lampshades from the
tatooed hides of men.
But, of course, saying thank-you really isn't
necessary. It was just a holiday. And after all,
in this busy university world of mid-term exams and Sunday morning hangovers, who can
afford two minutes?
Or who has the time to go to a Remembrance Day Service. Not many students.
The two hundred odd people crowded into
the Memorial Gym Sunday were mostly
parents of the bright young men of UBC's
armed services reserve. The bright young men
who marched so smartly were paid for their
smart marching.
Would they have come for free? Or would
they have come on their own? Or their parents
—would they have come if their offspring
hadn't attended?
And why the holiday on Monday when Remembrance Day was Sunday.
Have we become such a calloused society
that we give ourselves a free day to celebrate
the death of millions of young men?
Radio commentator Jack Webster, who
sometimes criticizes only to fill his air space,
rightfully asks that Remembrance Day be
marked on Nov. 11. A reasonable request.
He suggests a general paralysis of the city
for those two precious minutes when all work
stops, buses halt and minds remember And he
also asks that we stop pampering labor and
slacking students and throw out the long weekend. •   ,   (
Is that little phrase—Let We Forget—to
become the funniest gag line of our generation?
—M.G.V.
WCIAA: a fast race to a dead end
In a short while, the various muscular
brains of UBC athletics will begin mental exercises to assess the success of this year's football season.
If this year can be judged on those immediately past, a cry will be heard that students
don't support the 'Birds the way they should.
It will be claimed that the students are apathetic. And, it will be said that the football team
didn't get the publicity it should.
But we have a couple of suggestions to
make that might be considered when it comes
time for the post-season hot-stove session.
First of all there can be little wonder students don't support a football league that is
nothing more than a fast race to a dead end.
The WCIAA has four games. There are no
playoffs. Everyone knows half way through
the season who is going to be league champion.
Things are not the same everywhere,
though.
While UBC football players are settling
down to the business of catching up on late
essays and missed lectures, Eastern Canadian
universities will be holding a playoff series that
will fire spirits in at least three eastern schools.
The three eastern schools—which ones is not
yet decided—will be involved in league playoffs to decide who is champion.
The east has a league that means something
and a better brand of football.
There's another thing that should be considered by UBC's football people when they
are thinking about next year.
In the east, football spirit is a sacred thing
that is deliberately kindled.
They have at many schools what is known
as "football weekend." Hundreds or sometimes
a thousand students board a train to spend a
weekend of partying, revelling and rooting in
another city with their football team.
Many of the trips are long ones.
Trips from here to Edmonton may be out of
the question but we don't recall any attempt
to take students anywhere with the fooball
team—even to Portland for the annual game
against Willamette.
At UBC spirit is lacking.. But there isn't
very much to get excited about.
Something for all
The student union is a fascinating idea that
not enough people know about
As outlined by planning consultant Porter
Butts elsewhere in today's paper, a student
union building (SUB) is exactly what UBC
needs.
A SUB would be an ultra-modern, spacious
building with a relaxing atmosphere. It would
be inviting to thei average student. It would
have large eating areas.
It would provide activities for all students.
The building now planned will cost $2.8
million for its first stage and a total of $5 million for the completed building.
It'll be worth every cent of it, and students
should get behind the project to ensure its
early completion.

Letters to the Editor
m
Injustice
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
Last Thursday, I skipped
classes and went to court; 1
swore to tell the truth, I kissed
the Bible; I told the truth
about where I boarded, where
I stored my belongings, and
how often I visited home. I was
accepted as a Pt. Grey voter
and my case was dismissed.
Big deal!
Then I asked, "When is the
election? Where is my poll?
How many students are mak-
ing it to their court cases?
My answers only consisted
of "I don't know"s and "Oh
we can't  tell you  thaf's.
The election date is Monday,
Dec. 17; the poll is off campus;
less than half the students are
making it to their court cases;
however, almost all cases tried
are won.
Fellow students, don't let
your political sights and knowledge be clouded by bureaucracy and technicalities. The
Social Credit Party is quite
aware of its unpopularity
among the students (10.8% in
last mock parliament). Therefore, the fewer students there
are among the Pt. Grey voters,
the better for the party. Thus
it is easy to see why the voting convenience and service,
which is out right, is fortified
by such techniques as: holding
the election on a Monday during exams; having the poll off
campus; and requiring that the
students attend this uncustomary, unnecessary (although
quite legal) court at an inconvenient location like 12th and
Cambie.
Yours  truly,
R.  VAN  RYSWYK
Eng 4.
Clarification
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
A few things re Point-Grey
by-election have need of clarification.
First of all, The Ubyssey is
directly responsible for the
present confusion. You made
some inaccurate statements as
to who could vote. (Where?
Ed.)
Now, who on campus can
vote in the Point-Grey by-
election? There are three classes: a) Married students who
live with their families in residence on campus or off, b)
Graduate students who are in
residence all year round, and
c)   British subjects who  have
lived in  the Point Grey area
for six months or more.
No one else can legally vote.
(Show me this in the Election
Act. Ed.)
It should be noted that Mr.
Morton has checked every application for  the  voters  list
through the UBC files. If your
home is listed anywhere else
but in   the   Point Grey   area,-
you cannot vote.  (Why? You
and Mr.   Morton should  read
the  act.  Ed.)   You   will  have
received  a notice re court  of
revision.   Unless   you   qualify ..
under the above classes, there
is   little use  in  going  to  the
court  of  revision.   (Thank-you
for   deciding   our   cases. Ed.) -
If you do quality,  you  more
than likely did not receive a
letter.
Falsification o f information
on an application to be put on
a voters list is against the
Criminal Code of Canada
wherein punishment for such
an offence is prescribed.
Yours truly,
BARRY   L.   BLOW
By gad!!
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I object vehemently to your
editorial "This Headline is Indifferent too". In three apathetic years of attendance at this
institution, I have never before been moved to write a
letter to the editor until now.
By gad, sir. It is outrageous.
I have never read such a slanted editorial in my life.
Yours  truly,
JOE   A.   PATHY
Gutter-tramp
Editor,
The  Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
If the person who has been
writing lewd comments on the
walls of the Brock would make
himself known to me, I would
take great pleasure in making
sure that he is unable to do it
again. If he does not have the
guts, then I would appreciate
it if he would stop acting like
the gutter-tramp he must be.;

International fall fair
attracts huge crowd
Brock Hall became a world
market and showplace Saturday
night.
Almost 4,000 persons jammed
into the building to shop at
Swiss, Japanese and Israeli
stands and to watch Phillipine
and Swedish dancers.
It was the annual International House Fall Fair, held in
Brock Hall this year to provide
more space.
But the crowd found conditions inside were little better
than the huge traffic-parking
jam  outside.
About 75 cars had been parked on both sides of the East
Mall between Brock and the
Buchanan.
Shortly before 10 p.m. RCMP
officers interrupted an Israeli
national dance to warn motor-
ists to move their cars out of
fire zones and off the roadway
After a second warning police
finally ticketed a dozen vehicles.
Inside Brock, the concessions
were still attracting crowds.
The link corridor, turned into
an international display area,
featured products from Japan,
Sweden, Finland and Israel.
Japanese floral arrangements
took over the Mildred Brock
Room while upstairs in the TV
room a Hansel and Gretel puppet show entertained.
For those with a craving for
exotic foods, the north side of
the cafeteria offered tidbits
from the world over to please
the palate.
The evening was wrapped up
by a dance, which highlighted
as entertainment a West Indian
troupe with their drumming
and  dancing.
LECHEROUS Humphrey Devize (Jamie Reid) tells Jennet Jourdemane (Cecil Berry) that he can save her from burning—
his price "art exchange of bodily compliments." The action
takes place from tonight to Saturday, at 8:30 in the Auditorium when UBC Players present The Lady's Not For Burning.

The Engineers will cancel
the chariot race completely i|
any signs of riot appear during

The Engineers threw out an
application by Science to enter

Existing leisure time facilities at UBC came in for strong
criticism in Student Union
Building consultant Porter
Butts'   report.
There are no adequate places
for students to meet and eat
together, he says.
Dining facilities are scattered
and unpleasant. '"The cafeteria
in the basement of the Auditorium is old, obsolete and a
fire hazard. "The lines are long
and the atmosphere anything
but appealing or productive
of social amenities."
"The temporary lunch table
set-up for commuters in the
Armory  is  indeed  primitive."
"The Brock Hall dining room
suffers from obsolescence, lack
of appealing atmosphere, and
severe  overcrowding."
It has also been largely preempted by fraternity students,
he said.
Existing gathering places
are costly and too  decentral

nip third
in PNW
The UBC Thunderbirds crosscountry team climbed one rung
up the ladder Saturday as they
finished third in the annual Pacific Northwest Cross-counti y
meet held here at UBC.
Last year the Birds finished
fourth.
The meet was won by the
Vancouver Olympic Club, with
a low total of 23 points. Washington State was second with
35 points, and UBC had 44, to
edge out the University of Washington, who had 45.
Only   the   top   four   runners
for each team were considered
in compiling the team totals.
SECOND  WIN
VOC also won last year's
meet.
Peter Horn, who finished
third in 21 minutes 47 seconds,
was UBC's top runner. Ray
Hampton from VOC won the
four and one-half mile race in
21 mimjtes and 25 seconds.
Other UBC runners who
placed high enough to score
were Geoff Eales (eighth), Rod
Constable (fourteenth) and Tom
Fell (twenty-third).
■ NEXT  MEET
"We have run better as a
team," coach Peter Mullins said.
**It was just one of those days."
"It was a very close race if
you eliminate all non-college
teams," he added. "Washington
State would have had 22 points,
UBC 28, and the University of
tVashington 29."
UBC's next cross-country meet
Will be the Pacific Northwest

Soccer Birds tied;
protest pending
By DANNY STOFFMAN
UBC's soccer Thunderbirds went into overtime  Sunday
and came out with a protest
Max Wieczorek, who
pulls the number six oar
in the record-holding eight-
oared boat, is a fourth
year arts student from
Vancouver.
A relatively quiet member of the crew (not really
quiet—just in comparison)
Max, at 197 pounds is the
second heaviest man in
his boat. He stands six feet
three and one-half inches.
Max, like most of the
eight-oared crew, is in his
second year of rowing.
Birds tied Vancouver Italians
1-1 after a half hour overtime
period at muddy Powell Street
Grounds. The UBC team had
previously won six straight
games.
But coach Joe Johnson said
Monday the Birds will lodge a
protest with league officials on
the claim that Italians used too
many substitutes. League rules
state that a maximum of three
substitutes can be used in one
game.
• •      •
Ialiaas,     Johnson     contends,
played at least four. "I expect
the league will uphold the protest," he said. "I hardly think
they'll go against their own
ruling."
Birds made their poorest effort of the season against the
spirited Italians. "They unsettled us," said Johnson.
"They're a hustling team. But
we'll beat them next time."
Birds lone goal came on a
beautiful play by Ed Wasylik
after a pass from Jim Jamieson.
• •      •
If   the    Commission   upholds
Johnson's protest, the Birds will
advance to the quarter finals
against St. Andrews. If not,
there will be -a replay with
Italians. In either event the
game will be played Saturday
'flat Mclnnes Field.

had it.
They lost to Kerrisdale 64-57.
Jayvees could do nothing
right, while Kerries, playing an
average game, capitalized on the
UBC team's errors.
The Jayvees' shooting was off;
their defensive press wasn't
working; and (as usual for Jayvees) they had more ttian their
share of fouls.
Guard Herb Walker of Kerrisdale was the top player on the
floor.

Residents join students
in fighting eviction
'tween (lasses
UBC students are not alone
in their problem of keeping
suites in the Point Grey area.
Four thousand other Vancouver residents are also affected
by the City Hall ruling on illegal suites.
These people, suite owners
and people living in suites, have
formed the Homeowners Suites
Association, and are meeting
Thursday with the Illegal Suites
Committee of city hall.
"Our Association will support
the students in retaining their
Point Grey suites, but we need
some student support to do so,"
said Alec Ferguson, a member
of the executive committee of
the association.*   ' '
"We need at least eight or 10
students to back us up."
Vancouver city council plans
to evict almost 150 UBC students from illegal Point Grey
suites this Christmas.
Another 1,500 will be put out
by 1966, eliminating all illegal
suites from the 120 square
blocks bounded b y Fourth
Avenue, Sixteenth, Blanca and
Alma.
The Association has recently
won three cases in magistrate's
court on the argument that the
suites were legal at the time
they were put in (1943) and so
cannot be  made  illegal now.
At present they have two similar cases in the supreme court.
"So far we have spent several
thousand dollars on the problem," Ferguson said.
All students threatened with
eviction are urged to attend.
The association will meet with
city council at 2:30 p.m. in
Committee Room 1 of city hall.
