 Students are good to the last drip
Students have a clean record with the
Alcoholism Foundation.
"We've yet to have a university student referred to us," said B.C. Alcoholism
Foundation director of education Harold
Huggins at UBC Monday.
"It is wrong to think there is a lot of
drinking on campus."
Huggins said, however, that drinking
by students is increasing as alcohol is
more generally accepted by society.
He  said  the  main  reason  for  student
drinking is group pressure.
He said students seldom realize the
risk of early drinking.
"If alcohol is important to a person
at 18," he said, "it won't be less important
to him at 25."
•      •      •
He criticized The Ubyssey for offering
two cases of beer as prize in its Miss 50-
Megaton contest.
"It is presumptuous to offer liquor as
a prize in any contest," he said. "This is
"It just nourishes the attitude of accepting alcohol which is so prevalent today."
(The Ubyssey's Miss 50-Megaton contest closed Monday. Winner will be announced Thursday.)
Huggins favored establishing a pub
on campus.
"It would be an ideal social setting,"
he said. "But of course the law would
have to be observed.
"An under-age university student could
not be given any special privileges."

Door opens
to students
The door to the voting booth
is open for UBC students.
Chief Electoral officer Fred
Hurley said Monday students
who sleep in Point Grey will be
allowed to vote if they meet
other Elections Act requirements.
The decision followed a
County Court ruling by Judge
A. H. J. Swencisky allowing
Union College student Timothy
Flegel to vote. Flegel's parents
live in Blueberry Creek, B.C.,
but the judge ruled Flegel's
residence is here.
City registrar of voters Ken
Morton said 2,000 students who
registered to vote earlier this
year at booths set up on campus
need not re-apply.
"They are now on the voter's
list," Morton said.
Students wishing to register
for the Dec. 17 byelection can
do so at a registration booth
outside the AMS office in Brock
Hall from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
every  day until Thursday.
Morton also disclosed Monday
that less than 100 students had
been turned down at the Court
of Revision held to determine
the eligibility of persons who
, registered for the vote.
Candidates in the byelectioti
are   Liberal  Dr.   Pat   McGeer,
New Democrat Antony Holland,
? Conservative Reg Atherton, and
Socred Mrs.  Eve  Burns-Miller.

including six subdivisions of
apartments and homes to house

and light industry firms which
are not noisy and which do not

Webb and Knapp submitted
the proposal to Victoria last
spring in the form of a nine-foot
square model. The self-contained city is estimated to cost between $150-300 million.
E. R. Loftus, assistant vice-
president of Webb and Knapp,
declined Monday to comment
on public information which, he
said, did not come from his office.
"We   have   submitted   a   proposal to government,"  he said,
"but we are not willing to discuss it now.
"They (the government) have
all seen our scheme, and any
prerogative or action taken towards development is strictly
up to them."
Lands and Forest Minister Ray
Williston confirmed Monday the
government is considering proposals to develop the Endowment Lands.
At the moment, they have the
Robert Turner report of 1957 on
land development, plus Webb
and Knapp's proposal, he said.
A few other firms have shown
they are interested too, he said.
But nothing is laid down at
the moment as policy, he said.
Development would have to
be done as a long-range investment at a rate favorable for
profit, he said. Present money
for this kind of investment is
not easily available.
And any money used for endowment land development
now, he continued, would draw
on the funds being used for University expansion.
Williston pointed out that
Webb and Knapp went ahead
entirely on their own initiative
in drawing up their proposed
scheme whereby, they feel, development could go ahead with

Canada is 10 to 15 years behind the U.S. in the training of
psychologists, an assistant professor of psychology said Monday.
"Top psychology students
should go to the U.S. for graduate training, said Dr. Donald
Sampson at a noon hour meeting.
He said Ph.D. students will
receive higher pay and better
training   in  American   schools
"Maybe I'm a traitor, I don't
want to belittle what we (Canada) have, but the U.S. pioneered in the field of psychology," Sampson said.
"I think a student would be
better off to learft" from! the
source, which is the-U.S:, and
then bring back to Canada
what he has learned,"  he said.
Sampson said new staff at
the University of Toronto and
McGill are mostly trained' in
U.S. methods, and are gradually
leaving behind staff trained in
older methods.
"With the exception of Tor.
onto and McGill, UBC's under-'
graduate program is as good as
any  in   Canada."
President Macdonald has publicly stressed the need for more
graduate facilities. If we get
new staff, more facilities, and
money, we should be able In
have also an M.A. program as
good as any, Sampson said.
"As for our Ph.D. program—
we've never given a Ph.D. on
psychology," he said.
"But we now have one lady
in the final stages.
"She will be our first Ph.D.
and we hope to soon be turn ing
out more of them."
•Sampson said that one reason
for the lack of psychology students working for Ph.D.'s
in- Canadian universities, is
that there is tremendous competition for them.

from ; Young Progressive Conservatives for his alleged "dilatory and irresponsible action in
failing to back President Kennedy's stand on Cuba."
The Chairman of the YPC

Science will replace religion
UBC philosophy prof decides
Religion is an irrational facade for human ignorance that
is dying, a philosopher said
Dr. Peter Remnant said
people turn to a supernatural
explanation because they cannot
explain s0ientificaily the origin of the universe and life.
*      •      •
But, he said, theologians are
^finding that more and- more of
their religious explanations are
being replaced by scientific reasoning.
"Questions about the origin of
the universe will eventually dissolve in the same way," he said.
Remnant said that in the face
of scientific reasoning, theologians rely on faith and revelation for the existence of God.
Revelation; he said; consists
of sacred writings and private
'When I read the Bible, un-
inflamed by a sense of supernatural illumination, then I find
in  it just about as much  as  I
find in the sacred writings of
a primitive tribal.people," Remnant said.
"I don't see the hand of God
in   it."
Regarding private revelations,
Remnant  said:
"If someone tells me that he
saw God in a dream, I'd like to
know what this is supposed to
prove. I dream of girls."
Dr. Remnant rejected pure
faith on the grounds that it cannot substitute reason.
"The believer just goes on believing what he believes, no matter what the evidence is," he
•      •      •
"I for myself proportion my
beliefs according to the evidence
One student in the audience
asked:   "Are  you  an animal?"
Dr. Remnant said man might
be regarded as an animal with
a high evolutionary status.
When Remnant drew parallels between Christ and Socra
tes, one co-ed from the audience
suggested that while Socrates
recognized his limitations,
Christ exhibited an egocentri-
city which might have made
him fit for a mental institution.
In the long run, Remnant
predicted, man will ultimately
move  away   from religion.

Of all the creatures that infest   a   campus,   none   deserve
your compassion like the sched-'

Here is a fellow unlettered

Another of Freshie's originals was the 25 minutes alloted

me). No doubt he made up for
his schedule failings by more

grew fat on this one.

istration official said Monday
all revenue from the sale oi
land is going into an Endowment Land Trust Fund.
Most homeowners here also
own their property, he added.
But revenue is small, said Williston, andr the endowment, fund
is in the hole by a million dollars.
Development space is available from Marine Drive at Spanish Banks through to Forty-first
Ave. and Marine Drive.
. Williston said any schemes
considered would have to show
that the University would get
a profit from the land.
The University administrative
board would be consulted before
any move was made, he added.
University officials said they
did not know the details of
Webb and Knapp's proposal.
Real estate developers Webb
and Knapp are currently building Flemmingdon Park in Toronto, a giant commercial-industrial-residential complex costing
more than $100 million.
As far as they and University
officials know, their scheme for
the endowment lands puts UBC
in a unique position in Canada
in that such development would
take place in respect to University revenue and expansion.
University of Washington gets
extraordinary revenue from a
solid square mile of endowment
land in the heart of Seattle's
business section, known as the
''Metropolitan Tract," UBC public relations officer Jim Banham
told The Ubyssey.
Dr. J. A. Jacobs said the station, located on the south arm
of the river, 25 miles from Vancouver, detected recent nuclear
test explosions of the USA, but
not those of the USSR.
He said the USSR tests were
too low in the atmosphere to
be picked up.
Main purpose of the observation station is to measure rapid
changes in the earth's electromagnetic field.
The variations in the field,
caused by sun spots, solar flares
and nuclear bomb explosions
are picked up on six complete
sets of delicate recording equipment which are in operation
around  the  clock.
The research is supported by
grants from the National Research Council, the Defence Research Board of Canada, and the
American government's Office
of Naval Research.
Other geomagnetic research
projects in the past year included a combined field operation
between the Institute, the Pacific Naval Laboratory, and the
Universities of Alberta and California, and a detailed study of
;world-wide changes in the geomagnetic field.
The Institute also continued
work in the field of isotope
geophysics with special emphasis on lead isotopes. Field work
on the Athabaska Glacier in
Alberta has been continuing for
several years.

Decision to register is students
The case has been won, the decision has
been made and. now the onus is on the students
to get out and register for the Point Grey by-
Test case Timothy Flegel has made it possible for at least 5,000 students who live at or
near the university to vote.
The liberals, NDP and The Ubyssey each
supported the fight to get the vote. Further
action is up to the students.
For instance, students must decide just how
badly they want to vote here.
Many students "whose parents live" in the
interior or outside the metropolitan area might
wish to remain registered in their parents'
home riding. They may feel more loyal to the
area, or may feel they know the candidates and
issues in that riding better. It is the student's
choice now.
The point for these students to remember
is that if they register in Point Grey, they cannot register to vote in another riding. Should
say, a byelection be called in that area this summer. If a general provincial election is called,
the student will have to vote as an absentee
from Point Grey—not in the area he is staying
in the summer.
The answer to the problem is to institute
double residence privileges for students, as we
have suggested before, but since there seems
little likelihood of this in the near future, students must choose a place to vote.
Another point to consider is that many students will be finished their Christmas exams
by the time the election rolls around, Dec. 17.
They may be enroute to their parents' homes
and not need the vote anyway.
Each student who intends to register in this
riding for the next election must consider all
these problems.
Answer the questions posed above. Then
get out and vote. The student vote could be a
deciding factor for any candidate in this election.

Letters to the Editor
Whose plug gets the plugs?
Every university has its status symbol.
At this University, the big men on campus
are the ones who get a faculty parking sticker
so they can park behind Brock Hall.
At the University of Manitoba, things are a
little different. If you don't have a parking
place with a plug, you're nobody.
If you can't park close to a plug, you better
bring a hot water bottle to keep your block
from cracking. Things are tough enough already.
It used to be that plugs were grabbed by
the best athletes, who could intimidate everybody else and shove into the line at the end of
which plugs were allotted on a first come first
served basis. The boxing team was real big on
Now, things have changed. Plug day is gone
New regulations this year have the plugs
given out ahead of time by the administration
on some mysterious basis.
Might even be that they're giving the plugs
to the students who (gasp) get good marks.
Muffled sound car
We keep hearing voices. Loud, booming
They disrupt us in classrooms, they cut in

Usually it is much noise about nothing.
The voices come from mobile Badsoc—The

Rules should be set down which would control the volume, and the areas where speaking

Dear Sir:
We find it necessary to set
Mr. Buzan straight on his ill-
founded logic regarding his
comments on "an all-good, all-
wise God."
Starting with the premise
that God does not exist, you,
Mr. Buzan, proceed with two
illogical arguments and refute
your own topic statement by
asking for a definition of something which you believe nonexistent. Perhaps you would
accept God's own definition of
himself: "I am Who am."
It appears also that you cannot differentiate between free
will and foreknowledge. An
example perhaps might clarify
these terms for you. If you
were standing on the top floor
of a building and in the street
below you saw two cars heading for a certain collision,

Oxford: town of colleges and crumpets
Commonwealth Scholar
Everything people say about
Oxford, both good and bad, is
absolutely true. With regard
first to the town itself, it is
old, charming, quaint—entirely fascinating. Almost all buildings are of stone or brick, most
of the streets are lined with
high stone walls, and the pavement, both of roads and walking space, is flagstone.
Many of the colleges are
really beautiful, particularly
the older ones such as Magdalen, Balliol, Merton, and
Christchurch. Some of the
others, such as Keble College,
built in the 19th century, suffer from the usual defects of
Victorian architectural gro-
tesquerie. All of the old colleges have towers and spires,
bars on the windows, pikes on
the top of the walls, or sometimes broken glass!, and heavy
arched doorways with gargoyle knockers.
There are also many old
churches, some dating from as
early as the 15th century, and
one old Saxon tower which
dates from about the 10th or
11th century.
Some of the colleges are, of
course, very old. Balliol is
celebrating its 700th anniversary this year, but it is reckoned that Merton is the oldest,
predating Balliol by some 20
years of so. Each college also
has lovely grassy quads, and
many of them., have special
features such as Christchurch
meadows, which goes right
down to the river, and Magdalen Deer park which provides
a thoroughly Constable landscape.
The university buildings
form the rather small centre
of town, most of the colleges
facing on the town's four main
streets, or just off them.
Around this nucleus there are
several other areas which are
not quite so interesting. Oxford is the home of Morris
motors as well as of learning
and hence the outskirts are
quite industrialized, with rather drab housing areas adjoining the factory area. These
houses tend to be small,
rather poorly kept up (the
floors in my place, for example, are giving way in some
not too few areas, and to
judge from the nocturnal
noises in the walls, the place
is a haven for mice), not more
than two stories high, narrow,
draughty, all the same, all of
red brick with 2x4 gardens
behind, and of course are
wholly devoid of what we re
gard as conveniences of modern living.
•      •   - •
Central heating is, of course,
unheard of, but contrary to
what people say, rooms can be
very well heated with oil or
electric fireplaces and I cannot
honestly say that I have found
this lack to be really aggravating. What is aggravating,
however, is the lack of. things
like washing machines, driers,
proper kitchen facilities, closet
space and telephones. I have
to take my washing right to
the other end of town to do it
in a laundromat and even then
the drier does not get things
dry, with the result that washing and drying clothes takes
up one full afternoon, and
means having to drape a
clothesline in front of my
electric fireplace for another
Nor do I have access to a
telephone—there isn't a single
one in the building, and I have
to go out to a pubic booth at
the end of the sreet.
What I feel most about the
town, as you might expect, is
its sense of tradition. All the
students have to wear gowns
to lectures and to all more or
less official functions; students
living in college must be in by
10:30 or have written permission from someone or other to
stay out until 12! After that
you are simply ultra vires and
liable to fines, the amount of
which varies with the college
and the infraction. You can of
course, be sent down (expelled,
that is!) for such things as
staying out all night without
permission. The walls around
all of the colleges were originally intended to keep the
townsfolk out, but are used
now for the sole purpose of
keeping the students in, a
rather regrettable .perversion
of tradition I feel. Thus, the
traditions have both their
good  and  their bad  side.  Al
though I'm sure that it must be
wonderful   to    be   an    undergraduate  here,  part of a real
community    of   scholars,    not
subject  to   a  lot   of academic
organization   such   as   compulsory attendance at lectures, on
the other hand, the business of
having to be in early and  to
observe   many    other    regulations seems to me to be rather
an incursion into one's privacy
•      *      •
As far as graduate students
are  concerned  there are most
certainly   other   places   which
have more to offer in the way
of social life, and general ability  to   enter   into  the   student
life. Here, if you are not living  in   college,   as   almost   no
graduate students are, you are
really  quite  cut  off from   the
substance   of   Oxford   student
life  and   could  be  very,  very
lonely if you were at all shy
or retiring.  However,   it  goes
without saying that the training, the eminent people giving
lectures,   and   the   chance   to
work under a supervisor who
is probably a top scholar in his
field make up for a great deal.
For    my    own    part,    I    am
rather  lucky  in  that being  a
B. Litt. student, I am required
to take certain courses and this
does  provide  the occasion for
meeting other students; unfortunately,   it   does   not   really
leave  the  way  open  to  meet
students    who   are   in    other
fields,   one   of   the   very  best
facets   of   undergraduate   Oxford student life.

course not, for the fact that
,you were watching had no effect on the accident.
In reference to your concept
of God's intervention in evil,
may we point out that evil
does not exist of itself; rather,
being a negation of good, it has
been created by man himself!
By intervening, God would, in- •
deed, destroy man's iree will.
May we add, too, that out of
evil God draws much good,
perhaps even the conversion
of you, Mr. Buzan.

Bad taste
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I am in full accord with the
right of any man or group to
declare himself as a believer
or disbeliever, or what have
you. However, upon seeing a
poster stating "why I do not
believe in God" in bold phosphorescent letters placed
smack in front of Brock, I was
completely overtaken with a
strong urge to throw up right
in the centre of this abortion
of bad taste.
I  realize  one  must tolerate
gimmick   advertising   but   on
the   subject   of   religion,   gimmicks have no place.
Yours truly,
Commerce I.
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On my nightly hike to C lot
the other evening, I was distracted by stapling sounds. It
reminded me of the often neglected side of campus life: the
student sign makers. There
are, besides the professional
posters announcing forthcoming events (for example: "Pre-
Med Club Presents: Permanent
Poster, Do Not Remove"),
many fine illustrations of amateur art around this university.
One is always stepping on such
beauties as "Cuba Si" or "Cuba No," depending on which
side of the street you are walking. High up on the walls of
many buildings, one can see
the mildly aggressive "Puff
and Jane Strike Again," and
so forth.
In general, I say this to you
anonymous artists: Elevate
your works, maybe some day
they'll end up on the ceiling,
out of sight forever.

What is Real for besides Real?
From The Varsity, University of Toronto, Toronto,
Only days before the last
Canadian federal election,
Langevin Cote reported in the
Toronto Globe and Mail, "Public opinion polls have shown
rapidly rising support (for
Social Credit). Often Socred
meetings have outpulled those
of the other parties. The consensus is that Social Credit
will elect at least wo members."
The most liberal estimates
conceded only a maximum of
five or six victories for Social
Credit in Quebec. But when
the ballots were counted the
Creditistes claimed no less
than 26 parliamentary seats
and all of Canada sat down to
analyse the upset. The story of
this phenomenon is the story
of Real Caouette, deputy national leader of the Social
Credit party.
It was during the pre-war
days of 1939 when Real Caouette was first introduced to
Social Credit. It was love at
first sight. From June 15, 1941,
Caouette became a frequent
speaker at pro-Social Credit
Union des Electeurs, meetings.
This was the beginning of the
campaign which culminated in
placing 26 French-language
Social Creditors in Ottawa.
Caouette fought his first
• election in 1945, when the
death of a Liberal member
forced a byelection in the
Quebec constituency of Pontiac.
"I've got 40 minutes to go,"
he began, "so let's just hold
on boys and see what the
Liberals and Conservatives
have been doing to this
The speech that followed was
a   fiery   denunciation   of   the
two old-line parties. This was
his first campaign. He won the
" seat by 1,033 votes.
This first legislative honey
moon was destined to be a
short one for Caouette.
Through the combined efforts
of the Liberals and the Union
Na.tionale, in 1949, he lost his
seat, polling more than 10
times the tally of his Conservative opponent but losing to the
The years following this defeat were politically lean years
for Real. However, in 1957, at
the annual congress of the
Union des Electeurs, he became the centre of a mild Quebec revolution, which gave
birth on June 4 of the following year to the Ralliement des
Creditistes. Using television
with the success equal to William Aberhart's radio broadcasts in Alberta during the
early thirties, Caouette then
commenced the campaign
which was concluded on June
18, 1962. "Most of the people
out there weren't friendly," he
recalls. "They were the enemy.
I had to go after them the
hard way. I had to fight."
Fight begins
Caouette fought, and Social
Credit supporters across the
province multiplied with every
broadcast of his TV filmc.
While Quebec Conservatives
were disguising the fact that
they belonged to the same
party as John Diefenbaker,
Social Credit candidates
throughout Quebec proudly
identified themselves with the
man on TV who had become as
familiar to his viewers as their
next door neighbours.
In 1961, riding a crest of
Quebec suport, and with the
aid of British Columbia's Bennett Caouette almost captured
National leadership of Social
Credit, being defeated by R. N.
Thompson in a close fight.
Afterwards Caouette became
the deputy national leader of
the     party,     forming     what
— As others see us
From The Ryersonian
Ryerson Insitute of Technology, Toronto, Ontario
When the next federal election rolls around, .don't be surprised to see the Social Credit party making strong gains —
especially in the west.
In both provinces, nrovincial Socred sunporters have
voted Conservative in federal elections simply because Social
Credit has never been a strong force on the national scene.
Few of them, however, are die-hard party men.
As the Conservatives and their "conventional" economists
at Ottawa flounder in a morass of debt, what do westerners
see (hanpening under Canada's.two "funny money" governments?
British Columbia showed a surplus of over $30,000,000
last year. The province's public debt is based on four crown
agencies which together made a total profit of $20,000,000.   ,
There is no provincially-originated austerity in B.C. as
the government continues its vast expansionist program —
including new roads, bridges, coastal ferry boats and the
Peace River power project.
Alberta's economy has never been healthier than right
now. Social Credit has been strongly in power there since
1934 and there's no sign that the public support is dwindling.
"Sure, the oil discoveries have helped the Socreds keep
the province in good financial shape," one oil magnet said
recently. 'But I don't know pf any man who can get us a
better price for our oil than Ernest Manning."
For many western voters, the choice next election will
simply be one based on results — efficiency at home versus
apparent chaos at Ottawa.
Now Social Credit is making itself known federally, the
r provincial voters could very well withdraw their support from
an apparently crumbling Conservative machine to give the
federal Socreds a chance.
v And a strong western vote would give weight to Mr.
Thompson's leadership of the party, perhaps putting a damper
on the exuberant but somewhat irresponsible Mr. Caouette.
Thompson   calls,   "my   strong
right arm."
Final days
During the final days leading to June 18 reached the
high point of popularity in his
career, thus far. Wherever he
went he attracted capacity
crowds, tripling the audiences
attracted by Lester Pearson
and John Diefenbaker in Quebec City. His arms waving
and perspiration flying from
his face, this Social Credit dynamo would tell the people of
his province that interest rates
are too high, that taxation has
tripled in Canada since 1953,
that the cost of living index is
becoming   unbearable  for the
working man, and that the
debt system, which spawns
ever-increasing tax burdens,
was basically responsible for
these difficulties. With the
fury of a William Jennings
Bryan, he denounced the
"Divine Right" of capital.
Comparing taxation to serfdom, and calling it "confiscation," he declared, "between
being a slave and a free man,
I'll choose to be a free man."
"I will fight to the bone if any
government tries to increase
the taxes. Increase the exemptions, increase the family allowance, but please not more
Like his Socred colleagues,
he insisted that the industrial
development bank   should   be
used to provide interest-free
credit to business and industry
in order to provide Canadians
with jobs. "Let's employ our
people," he pleaded, "not subsidize their unemployment."
Eve of triumph
The results of his campaign
in Quebec speak for themselves. When questioned on his
eve of triumph Caouette declared, "You haven't seen anything yet—wait until the next
election and then watch us
sweep the province and the
country." There was a time
when the old-line parties of
Quebec laughed scornfully at
this fiery orator but today
they are not taking him so
'Lots of money, no freedom'
US college press surveyed
From The McGill Daily
McGill  University
Montreal, Quebec
The 38th annual conference
of the (American) Associated
Collegiate Press, which took
place during September in
Detroit, was attended by 942
delegates from 371 campus
publications in 37 states, the
District of Columbia and Canada. The editor of the McGill
Daily attended, and published
the following report.
Yearbooks and magazines
were represented as well as
newspapers; the newspapers,
which dominated the conference, ranged from the mighty
Minnesota Daily, with its
$200 thousand budget, to the
weekly and bi-monthly emana- ,
tions of obscure "liberal arts"
colleges in deepest Dixie.
It is perhaps difficult to
draw generalizations from
such a mass of dissimilar phenomena, but a few may be ventured.
Role different
In the first place, the concept of the role of a college
newspaper in the United States
seems to differ from that held
in Canada. In many and probably most of the schools whose
delegates I spoke to, the newspaper is considered primarily
as a training ground for professional journalists rather
than as a means of expressing
student opinion.
The corollary to this is that
the newspaper is conceived of
as a combination laboratory
and publicity organ for the
school of journalism. The result of this is the all-out universal phenomenon of the
faculty adviser.
The faculty adviser is a person, usually but not always a
professor, nominated by the
university to supervise the college paper. In some cases his
function is filled by making
the paper responsible to a
"publications board" with student and faculty representatives. In others there is just
one adviser.
He who pays . . .
Many papers are published
with the financial support of
the university administration,
which may or may not operate
through the student government.
Autonomous student government on the Canadian pattern
is virtually unknown in the
U.S. and on many campuses
student government is held in
extremely low esteem, being
regarded as either a farce ("all
they do is pass resolutions") or
the puppet of the university.
Admittedly, this is only what
I heard from the student editors, many of whom may be
A few papers preserve their
independence by charging a
price to students who pick up
the paper, and in this manner
cover all their expenses except
those covered by advertising
. Several   of  the   campus   pa
pers reserve for themselves
the right to take sides in student elections, which are generally fought in an atmosphere
reminiscent of the last days of
the Weimar Republic.
Elections bitter
In many cases indigenous
campus political parties exist,
which seem to be often controlled by rival coalitions of fraternities. Needless to say this
creates the chance of bitterness
between the student government and the newspaper. The
result is a continuous struggle
for power which would stymie
most Washington correspondents, and can hardly be conducive to effective student
The vanishing Indian
Canada's Mississippi
From The Ryersonian [
Ryerson Institute of Technology, Toronto, Ontario
While Canadians sit back and groan over the segregation-
al problems of the southern United States, integration of the
Canadian Indian into Canadian society is being thwarted.
The Indian population of Canada whiclli once numbered
220,000 presently stands at 185,000. These 185,000 live on 2,200
tracts of land which are scattered across the Dominion. The
tracts of land, called reservations, are neatly tucked away in
the backwoods in order that the Indian red will not mix with
the Canadian white.
The minute the white man landed on Canadian soil he
took advantage of the gullible and somewhat primitive Indian.
The French and English received thousands of dollars worth
of pelts for a handful of mirrors and other trinkets. Is this a
fair exchange?
Disease, caused by the white man, has left an ugly scar
in the history of the Indian. As early as 1786 it began to be
felt. The Cree nation which numbered 15,000 was withered
down to 3,000 by small pox. This happened in two years.
The white man's rifle enabled him to slaughter large
numbers of buffalo and caribou. Soon the herds began to disappear. Eventually the squaws became thin and the tepees
were without meat. Then, the Canadian government stepped
in and protected the herds The Indian, dependent on the
herds, had to be protected too. The Indian is still being protected. The government nurses him and wonders why he
cannot adapt himself to Canadian society.
Now the Indian earns his living from two basic methods,
farming and trapping. The farms are located in the old reserves. The soil is poor and so is the living. Trapping has become an existence living.
The future of the Indian is far from optimistic. The reserves have been exhausted. He sinks lower and lower into
deprivation. What will happen to that once proud and fearless
race? It appears that the defeat of General Custer by Sitting
Bull at the battle of Little Big Horn was the last victory for
the North American Indian. . (Jpage 6

strengthen their team for international competition.
One of the players they came
up with was Dave Way, UBC's

and rebounder, was one of the
top collegiate players in Canada last year. Until the Broders
contacted him, he had planned

How Canadian Nickel* helps make seawater drinkable in Kuwait
It wasn't so long ago that Kuwait's drinking water had to be imported in goatskin bag$;
the natural sources of water being particularly foul and brackish. Today, however, the
world's largest seawater evaporation plant supplies six million gallons of fresh water
daily. Nickel alloys helped make this plant possible, just as they help in similar
ways in other countries. Why nickel? Because nickel alloys can best withstand the
punishing effects of corrosive salt water. The growth of nickel markets at home and
abroad helps strengthen Canada's economy and helps provide-more jobs for Canadians.

'Gangsterism' charged
in  publications hassle
HAMILTON (CUP)—Charges of gangsterism and puppetry
have been levelled against the McMaster student board of publications.
In a letter published on page
one of the McMaster Silhouette,
resigning circulation manager
John Graaskamp Said pressure
has been exerted on the Silhou-
■ette editor to suppress an article
attacking the Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear
7©isarrnarn&nt. A reporter from
the downtown Hamilton paper
was called and given a highly
biased view of McMaster's foreign student policy, and the
publication of material on the
Silhouette editorial page gave
the illusion that McMaster students opposed President Kennedy's recent Cuban stand,
Graaskamp charged.
Chairman of the board of
publications, Paul Rigby, said
the article attacking the
CUCND did not get into the
paper due to space problems.
He said the story on the for
eign student policy was not
given the press by any members of the board of publications. He said the reason there
were no articles supporting the
Kennedy stand was that none
were turned in to the editor.
In another letter published
in the letters-tO-the-editor section of the newspaper, the ex-
circulation manager claims the
publications board is a "hangout for a bunch of ban-the-
He further states the office of
the board of publications has become the home base for this
