After death mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm     CUS   head  office
to charge
TORONTO (UNS)—A brewing company will be charged
under the Ontario Liquor Act
after the death of a Toronto
student following a beer-
drinking party.
Police said Monday O'Keefe
Brewing Company will be
served with a summons charging they carried on an advertising campaign not approved
by the Liquor Control Board
of Ontario.
The charge arises out of the
death of Thomas Dasovich, 26,
of Elliot Lake, Ont., in a car
crash Feb. 23 after he took
part in a fraternity house
beer drinking contest to which
the brewery donated a trophy.
He was a student at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute.
A coroner's jury recommended last week that brewery salesmen be prohibited
from canvassing and promoting alcoholic beverages at
any educational institution or
student residence.
The ruling followed an inquest into the death of Dasovich.
The jury also recommended
the abolition of beer-vending
machines in student residences.
" Conn Harris, an O'Keefe
Brewing Company salesman
who sold beer to a fraternity
and supplied a trophy for the
winner of a drinking contest,
told the inquest the contest
had been approved by his two
immediate superiors at the
There was no reference to
CKeefe's in the jury's findings and the driyers of the two
other cars involved in the fatal collision were absolved
of any blame in the accident.
Joslyn Roberts of the attorT
ney-general's department testified Dasovich, who weighed
325 pounds, had a blood-alcohol count of two parts per
1,000 and about 12 bottles of
beer in his body when killed.
He said he would have had
to consume much more to
have that amount of unab-
sorbed liquid left.
After trying to convince
Dasovich not to drive home, a
fraternity brother said tte

off at high speed.
On the main street his car
struck one car and glanced
off it into another coming

Scott said University of Toronto, about UBC's size, had already 50 per cent response and
were certain of 75 per cent.
"Eighty to ninety per cent is

"I guess apathy at UBC is
even more rampant than

Scott hit out at criticisms of
the method of carrying out the
survey, which requires students
to complete the form at the
local CUS office.
He said if the survey forms
had been mailed out, CUS
would have no way of finding
out who hadn't completed and
returned the forms, since all
returns are anonymous.

Library interested
in where to go
Where do they go, and what do they do in the Library?
This   is   the   question   the
school of Librarianship is trying to answer this week.
The school of librarianship
is counting everyone, everywhere at all the libraries on
"We don't know if we can
prove anything by the survey,"
Library head Basil Stuart-
Stubbs said, "we just wondered
how many people come in, and
where they go."
The count is being taken at
the entrances to the libraries,
in the reading rooms and study
areas and at the stack entrances.
At 1:30 Monday, 9,016
people had entered the main
library and college library.
Of this total, 3,166 had entered the College Library
The figure does not include
the Curriculum Laboratory or
Woodward Library.
Stuart-Stubbs said, "I am impressed already. This represents two-thirds of the student
population, and we aren't even
half-way through the day. In
this library alone, we can project a volume of at least 20,000
people using the library today."
The attendance in the reading rooms, and at the entrances
is being made on an hourly
basis as well. A count of the
books being loaned, returned
and shelved is being made.

Does English Canada really have to wake up and repent
as the interim report of the Royal Commission on Bilin-
gualism and Biculturism indicates?
Will Canada really be destroyed if our national crisis
is not quickly resolved?
Why, if we are in a crisis situation, do we have to
wait until 1967 for the Commissioners' finalized report
on how to solve our great crisis?
We doubt Canada is facing the grave crisis indicated
in the Commissioners' report.
By travelling through the country in an attempt to
gauge the mythical pulse of the nation they have succeeded admirably in collecting a great assortment of
dissident opinion.
The Commissioners seem to have created a hothouse
atmosphere and produced an incubated report predicated on the assumption the nation is going straight
to hell.
They seem to forget that the large mass of Canadians
who couldn't care less, and couldn't act effectively if
they did, are a positive benefit in any potentially inflammatory situation.
That Quebec is the focal point of the report is not
That there is a new Quebec rising somewhere east
of the Rocky Mountains is accepted.
But the impression that the rest of Canada is united
and rather slowly moving is deplorable.
B.C. has a dynamism all its own. Were the residents
more emotional the repeated blockage of the Bank of
B.C. legislation could provide ideal material for
And how is a resident of British Columbia supposed
to act during this crisis of confederation?
Are we to learn French knowing full well we will
never use it?
Are we to read all about the Quebec dynamic revolution while Quebec reads about Quebec's dynamic revolution and forgets us?
The Commissioners discovered that many Canadians
are prone to accepting certain myths about the nature
of Quebec life.
It would not be too important to suggest that Granduc,
and its multi-million dollar mining scheme, were unknown in most of Canada before the slide.
The Commissioners' report is, by all accounts, a
slickly written and forcefully presented document.
It asks French Canadians to accept certain peculiarities of English Canadians.
It tells English Canadians what they must do to avoid
The report accepts as fact many things British Columbians do not view as simple fact (Quebec rejection of the
Confederation of 1867).
We will have to wait until the suggestions of the
commission are finalized in 1967 to see if the report
is constructive and not just what we fear: Frogwash.
The holiday
We should have known better than to accept something from the administration for free.
They've given us, so they say, a mid-term break, an
unprecedented three-day "holiday" this week.
Students requested the rest because there is ordinarily no holiday to break up the long grind from January
to final exams.
We're physically tired. Academically stale. But do
we get a "holiday" like the president said?
The science departments are re-scheduling labs for
the first week of exams. Most students would rather
have them now, in that case. libraries will remain open
"so you can do a little catching up." Profs assign an
essay "for something to do over the weekend."
Aw, c'mon fellas. We had less work with regular
classes, which we could skip and go skiing.
Give us a break, huh?

The following article ap.
peared in February, 1963,
in the Vancouver Province.
Professor Avrum Stroll had
just resigned his teaching
post at UBC to take up a
more lucrative job in California.
Because of the urgency and
the gravity of the situation,
I should like to take this opportunity to describe the precarious financial and academic position in which UBC
now finds itself. This statement will contain only facts
—facts which cannot be explained away by evasive governmental pronouncements.
The facts are these:
• 1. In the ten years I
have been a member of the
faculty at UBC, the provincial government has never on
any occasion wholly met the
university's legitimate budgetary requests.
• 2. This policy of financial attrition is now taking
its toll. Labs do not have the
equipment they need for
teaching and research purposes. The library of the university is clearly inadequate,
ranking about 50th among
libraries of North American
• 3. The ratio of the number of students to the number of faculty members is
one of the highest in Canada,
about 20 to one. This ratio
will go up in 1963-64 after
the new freshman class enrolls. Already overburdened,
faculty members will have
less time for research and
the quality of sheer teaching
will suffer.
• 4. UBC has virtually no
program of graduate studies.
About six per cent of the students at UBC are enrolled in
the graduate program as compared with 60 per cent at
Columbia, 50 per cent at Harvard and 30 per cent at Berkeley. To a great extent universities are to be judged in
terms of merit by the percentage of students enrolled
in graduate studies. By this
direction,   UBC   ranks   very
low indeed.
• 5. In terms of salaries
paid to faculty members,
UBC has slipped well back
among Canadian universities,
now ranking eighth. This is
a matter requiring urgent
correction if UBC is to attract scholars of ability and
to retain those it has.
• 6. Morale among the
staff is low. Faculty members are loyal to their departments and to the university, and they will frequently work under adverse
conditions, but the faculty
taken as a group is exceedingly unhappy about the academic and financial prospects for UBC. We may reasonably expect to see more of
them leaving the university
for these reasons.
The responsibility for this
situation primarily rests with
the provincial government
which, despite repeated requests by President Macdonald, by some members of the
board of governors, by the
students, and by faculty
members, has refused to
meet its financial obligations
to the university. In the end,
it will not only be the university which suffers, but the
general community of which
it is a part and in which it
plays so fundamental a role.

Editor, The Ubyssey:
We wish to protest a statement made in your paper on
Thursday February 25, concerning a certain entry in the
Shrum Commons Art Exhibit.
The entry in question is a
collage titled Mondo Connor.
We do not consider the collage in any respect phony.
We demand a retraction.
You should have tried to
discover the underlying purpose. It was done as a satire
on society in general, and
this form of art in particular,
just as Pope's Rape of the
Lock was a satire on his society and epic poetry.
As Gordon Smith said, and
as your reporter would have
discovered had he been at
the critique, this is a form
of art and good fun.

Timetables sooner
Editor, The Ubyssey:
After writing exams at
Christmas I came to the conclusion that both the tentative and final exam time-
tables should be posted
about a month before final
exams start.
I see little reason why this
cannot be done since after
Christmas there are relatively few dropouts and the
structures of various classes
are affected marginally.
The timing of most exams
is very important to students
who   usually   allocate   their
time   with   some   respect   to .
the final schedule.
A longer period between
the posting of the schedules
and the first exams at Christmas would have been appreciated by students.

for more university mental
health clinics, confidential
handling of mental health
problems and a smoother
transition between high school

During the conference sponsored by the Ontario region
of the Canadian Union of Students, students stressed the
need for university advisors
capable of dealing with emotional problems as well as academic difficulties, and called
for more advisors with special
training in counselling.
They blamed many health
problems on the transition between high school and college,
which requires students to
assume unaccustomed responsibility during their first year
of university.

The initiative of French
student Vladimir Poplavski,

creating language days which
have become one of the most
popular activities at IH.
"Poplavski started them in

departments and the various

One of the central problems
of IH is lack of space.

groups can meet and mix with
each other and with Canadians," said Geddes.
"The problem of expanding
the present building or obtaining a new one has been

Governors; but, as for everyone else at UBC, money is a
big stumbling block," said
The most ambitious undertaking of IH in recent years
has been the buddy system.

teaming up of a Canadian student with a foreign student
