Anti-calendar
Profs go
on trial
with class
Courses, professors and labs
in UBC's faculty of science
face an anti-calendar rating
next year.
Fourth year science student
Don York and friends have
been distributing questionnaires during the last two days
to get information for the anti-
calendar.
The anti-calendar, a booklet
evaluating courses, profs and
labs from the student view,
should be ready before registration in September.
• •   •
"We are gathering student
opinions so that we can find
areas of dissatisfaction, said
York, retiring science undergrad president.
"The questions about profs
are based on teaching ability
alone," he said. "Under the
present system students just
don't get their money's worth
in lecture halls."
The questionnaire, broken
into four sections, has been answered by about 1,000 students
so far.
York had 2,000 printed for
his first experimental run.
"We hope to cover all 196
courses offered in Science," he
said. "A prof could be a poor
teacher in one lower year
course but quite good in an
upper year. By covering all
courses we have some safeguards."
York said he wasn't too worried that the survey would be
weighted in favor of only the
disgruntled.
• •   •
"We distribute the questionnaire randomly in classes and
students are asked to put their
Christmas mark on the paper,"
he said.
The questionnaire is broken
into three main sections, each
listing six to eight questions.
A fourth section asks students
to make comments other than
those covered in the first
three.
The sections are entitled:
Course, professor and laboratories.
York said he feels the section dealing with professors
will be subject to the most criticism but said students should
have the right to evaluate a
professor's performance.
Sample questions are: Does
the professor know his subject?
Does    he    answer    questions?

Finance figures
barred to faculty
A faculty committee has rapped the adrninistration's refusal to disclose financial information about the bookstore.
And  this  refusal,  the com
mittee says, is hampering any
efforts to suggest realistic ways
to improve the operation.
It also raises the issue of
whether financial information
should or should not be provided frankly and openly to
responsible Faculty Association bodies, says the report.
A letter sent to Dr. John
Macdonald during committee
investigations said its report
would have little meaning if
necessary financial information was not provided.
TURNED DOWN
But the president turned
down the request for information. Macdonald said in a letter to the committee he would
welcome any proposals from
the committee but felt the management itself should remain
the responsibility of the administration.
His letter added: 'Particularly as the bookstore accounting
is intimately related to our
overall goals for ancillary services," <Housing-food-hospital.)
The committee report points
out that it is not possible to determine if other university services such as housing and food
services are being borne by the
bookstore.
NOT SATISFIED
It says it is not entirely satisfied with the present control
of the store and that it must
not be considered as just another university service.
The report says the bookstore has an academic function
which is just as vital as that of
the library.
The committee said two administrators responsible for the
bookstore, John McLean and
John Hunter, were "co-operative and frank" in discussing
all aspects of the internal operation of the store.
But they were prevented by
university policy from revealing accounts, discussing overall financial policy or giving
details of the manner in which
the bookstore finances related
to the university.
LETTER SENT
The committee then wrote a
letter to president Macdonald
asking if profit and loss statements and accounts showing
the surplus and deficit of the
store could be made available.
The letter also requested
statements concerning amortization of building costs and
inventory financing methods.
It was then that the president turned down the request.
The committee decided to continue asking faculty members,
students and department for information on the bookstore
anyway.
Committee members were
Arthur Beedle, C. S. Belshaw,
T. H. Storm and S. H. Zbarsky.
Former frosh president Jason
Leask was the lone student
member.

. . . 'cut prices'
Book cost
cuts urged
in report
The faculty committee's
recommendations for improvement of UBC's bookstore service urge that:
The university administration relinquish control of the
bookstore and turn it over to
a governing board with student
and faculty  representatives.
The Faculty Association influence the Canadian Association of University Teachers to
investigate publishers' policies
and work to lower suggested
retail book prices.
The bookstore be expanded
as soon as possible, with one
or two sites for private secondhand bookstore operators «—
made available on campus —
possibly in the new student
union building.
Expansion of stock to include "as many currently published works as possible."
All periodical services be
brought together in one clearly
demarcated section of the store
with a wider range of serious
publications for sale and subscription.
The bookstore enter the art
field, and hire a specialist for
this purpose.
A general division of the
bookstore into separate departments administered by specialists.
The bookstore clearly label
its counters and list its senior
personnel in the telephone
directory.
A clearly identified complaint and information counter
to be set up and staffed with
a senior  bookstore  employee.
The bookstore cater more to

Thunder
rumbles
on Day
Thunder, UBC's official mascot, celebrated his tenth birthday yesterday wandering
around campus greeting his
well-wishers.
"I have been awarded a
year's subscription to The
Ubyssey and there is some talk
of giving me a seat on student
council," said Thunder.
AMS treasurer Kyle Mitchell said: "As an elder statesman, Thunder should be allowed to voice his opinion."
Thunder said he appreciated
the recognition he has received.
"I would like to thank Mr.
Paul Terry for his story about
me yesterday, but there is one
thing I feel my duty to clear
up—I am not a vagrant. I have
a home near campus."
Thunder said he was sorry
for giving an impression of being a little wayward.
"I know it doesn't look good
wandering around when I do
have a home, but this freedom
I have is very valuable—it
gives me a chance to examine
UBC with a critical eye," he
said.
Hardial just
faded away
Well known campus politician Hardial Bains has gone
away.
Bains, organizer of the B.C.
Students Federation, left last
week for India.

deadline
extended
The deadline for applications
for positions on AMS committees has been extended until
today.
The AMS has received four
applications for the position of
assistant co-ordinator, largest
number in recent memory, said
AMS co-ordinator Graeme
Vance.
No applications have been
received for mamooks manager, games room manager,
games room supervisor and the
Brock management committee.
Byron Hender, AMS president-elect, said officials will
probably ibe chosen at the Brock
management committee meeting March 15.

Does he make himself available (for counselling)? Is the
professor interested in students?
Another question asks students to rate their profs on a
scale of one to five. A one rating would be excellent while
a five would be poor.
York said he first suggested
the anti-calendar idea at a
science undergrad meeting but
received little response.
He said third-year science
student Devin Trussell came to
him later and said he too felt
an anti-calendar was needed.
Trussell and York designed
the questionnaire being distributed now.
"There are still some things
wrong with it, York said.
"Some students are confused
about the rating one to five
of the profs. There are a couple
of other ambiguities we have
to fix up too."
He said a superficial glance
at the questionnaires so far indicates students are unhappy
with certain texts which don't
relate to subject matter.
He said courses which have
been described as good generally are described as having a
good prof also.
He said present plans call
for completing the survey part
of the calendar before the end
of term.
He said he doesn't know
what form the book will take,
but is investigating ways of
getting a  cheap  printing job.
The anti-calendar will be
sold at cost during registration
week.
He said students generally
have a month after registering
in a class to make a change.
"It will probably take about
a year to catch on," he said.

UBC president John B. Macdonald struck back Thursday
at Arts faculty members' complaints about the appointment
of the new Arts dean and their salaries.
"Any individual or group of
individuals is free to comment
or to advise me on the selection of the new dean, and such
advice will be welcomed," Dr.
Macdonald said.
Thursday's Ubyssey carried
comments of Arts faculty members who want to elect four
of their number to sit on the
president's 12-member selection committee to pick the new
dean.
They claim Macdonald told
them they will have no say
in the make-up of the selection committee.
They claim some professors-
gain raises by telling their
deans they have an offer of
more money from another
university.
"To the best of my knowledge this is not true," Macdonald said. "As a matter of
policy, I have not permitted
it."

Too little, too late'
UBC president Dr. John Macdonald
Thursday criticized the recently-appointed
government advisory board on university
financing as coming too late to do an effective job this year.
Dr. Macdonald said the board had an almost impossible job to make a recommendation, within three weeks, on how to split
up a lump sum of $18.5 million among
B.C.'s three universities.
"UBC must have its 1965-66 budget prepared by the end of the month, but before
it can be drawn up we must know the
amount of our operating grant," he said.
"Since the estimates from all three universities were submitted independently
without clear lines for comparison I don't
see how such a board can be useful this
year."
He said, however, that the board, similar
to one recommended in his report on the
needs of higher education, could be very
useful in the future.
The board, headed by Dr. S. N. F. Chant,
dean emeritus of the faculty of arts and
science, is made up of university and government appointees.
In Victoria, meanwhile, NDP MLA John
Squire of Alberni called for university
budgets to be opened for public scrutiny
and debate in the legislature.
"The sooner university budgets are made
available for public discussion the sooner
universities will get the kind of financing
they need," he said.
"The cabinet's views on universities
should be presented to the legislature."
Cal head resigns;
no reason given
BERKELEY, Calif. (PSP) — The president of the University of California resigned Wednesday without giving
any reason.
25 protest
exam cram
A section of the education
faculty has requested a change
in their exam schedule.
The 25 students write six
exams in three days, April 8,
9, 10 and the last April 21.
Along with President Clark
Kerr, acting Chancellor Martin Meyerson also resigned
without giving a reason.
Berkeley campus of the University of California has been
shaken since last fall by a Free
Speech Movement led by 22-
year-old New York student
Mario Savio.
The group's activities, culminated last year in a full scale
riot which led to the arrest of
800 demonstrators at the university administration buildings last Dec. 2 and 3.
Meyerson succeeded Chancellor Edward Strong who quit
after the December fracas.

Pro negativism
UBC students are often accused of taking negative
attitudes toward life.
But UBC's latest bit negativism, in the form of an
anti-calendar for the science undergraduate society,
is commendable.
The questionnaire the science boys are distributing
falls far short of perfection.
But if the first anti-calendar is unfair—so what
It's a start, and obviously if the anti-calendar is
produced annually the questionaires will become more
sophisticated, the criticisms validated and, in short, a
good product will arise.
To the criticism that it judges only on teaching
ability, we say — great.
Let's hope more faculties start moving on anti-
calendars.
Some facts
Last week The Ubyssey requested an explanation
of the operation of the university bookstore.
We pointed out that the store had been consistently
understocked, had charged prices equal to, or higher
than those charged off campus despite the fact that
students had been promised "substantial savings" at
the time of the store's inception, and that the store had
been so understaffed that students had been forced to
stand in lineups for hours at a time.
This editorial was written in 1949 when UBC
information officer Jim Banham was editor of The
Ubyssey.
Things don't change much, do they, Jim? At least
the present bookstore mess hasn't been attributed
to bookstore manager John Hunter. It's the administration this year.
Say, you're part of the administration now, perhaps we can get the facts from you.
The management of the store has so far refrained
from offering any explanation.
By implication, then, they are guilty of the offenses
as charged.
By further implication they have no explanation to
offer or are too lazy to offer any explanation, or they
have something to hide.
If no explanation is forthcoming from the store
management, The Ubyssey must, on behalf of the students, request the administration, to whom the management is responsible, to offer an explanation on. its
behalf.
In fact, a full-scale investigation may perhaps be
the only way to discover the source of the problem.
We do not wish to imply that profiteering, mismanagement or general blundering is in evidence.
The problem is that there is no evidence of anything save an wholly unsatisfactory situation exists.
In fact, we do not even wish to speculate as to the
causes of the situation.
Until we know, we must suspend judgment. But we
cannot suspend judgment forever.
A remedy must be found, and to propose a remedy
we must have the facts.
Where, Mr. Hunter, are your facts?

7-   CAROLE'S LOOKING GLASS
The wench and publicity
By CAROLE MUNROE
Scandalous! Shocking! An
insult to womanhood!
Such were some of the remarks that greeted the entrance of a certain redhead,
affectionately dubbed The
Wench in The Ubyssey office,
but known in more formal
circles as the anti-VD poster
girl.
Carole Margaret Munroe
is a 20-year-old Canadian
who came to The Ubyssey
from Oregon State University's Daily Barometer.
As well as writing her
regular weekly column.
The Looking Glass, Carole
is the Canadian University
Press editor.
She's already hooked—on
journalism.
Ah, such notoriety!
A Liberal MLA not only
claimed she belonged in Playboy—a privilege few girls are
offered—but also composed
an ode dedicated to her.
Although the distinguished
member probably meant her
no compliment toy these poetic
phrases, The Wench nevertheless smiled knowingly
through all the chaos.
Actually it has been this
come-on smile as much as her
seductive body that has caused the furor.
One indignant letter to the
editor called upon all women
to band together for the protection of womanhood.
(Strangely enough it was written by a man.)
• •    •
"This babe insults everything you women stand for.
Why did they pick on a girl,
why not have a picture of a
man on the poster?" said the
writer, his pen flowing madly to protect what he called
the female image.
Let me tell you why a head
shot of a male didn't make
the poster.
If it had, the whole campaign would have been left
hanging on men's washroom
walls right next to the sign,
Reward For Any Information
On the Defacing of These
Walls . . .
• •   •
But thanks to The Wench,
the anti-VD campaign was
the most-talked about and
over-emotionalized subject
since Bennett took over the
B.C. Electric.
Not for The Wench, the obscurity of a washroom wall.
She made it into the big
time of bulletin boards and
cocktail conversation..
And with every mention of
her and the poster, more ven
ereal disease information
came out into the open.
Almost everyone can now
repeat the statistic: four out
of five pickups have venereal
disease.
And isn't this exactly what
the Department of Health
wanted all the time?
They're not all dumb over
in Victoria. This campaign
proves that.

was also the week The
Ubyssey scooped the world
(as well as UBC press
agent Ralph May-1-Correct Daly) with the yarn
on the D and D report.
If the Sun and Times
front-page stories looked
slightly familiar, It was
because they did fast rewrites of the modest campus paper as they wiped
the egg from their faces.
And Ralph is still trying to get out a press release on the story that
everybody has already

PF Two
By   MIKE   HUNTER
THE other day, I was sitting in my back yard
admiring the snow on the
mountains when I heard a
large crash.
It was sort of a groaning,
moaning crash, and it came
from due East.
"It's Quebec," I remarked
to Fred, my dog, who was
lying in the sunshine on the
back porch. "Quebec. Quebec has seceded."
My dog, who is rather
blase about politics, rolled
over and scratched a flea
from about an inch behind
his left ear.
"Who cares?" he said, and
went  back  to  sleep.
• •      •
"Look here, Fred," I said.
"You can't say things like
that. You can't just lie there
in the sun and look at the
mountains and roll around
on that blacktop and dream
about dams and pulp mills
and big, juicy downstream
benefits."
Fred just yawned.
"Don't give me any of
that fleapowder jazz," he
said.
"But Fred," I said, putting down my final home
edition of the Bridge River-
Lillooet News. "Quebec has
left us. Gone. No more. Ka-
flooey."
"Who cares," he said,
doggedly.
• •     •
"But what about Canada?" I asked. "What about
Confederation, national unity, the flag, egg souffles,
and the Montreal Cana-
diens ..."
"The Montreal Canadi-
ens," he replied, "is bums."
"Look here, Fred. All
that's culture. And lingual-
ism, and stuff like that.
And without it WE'LL be
kaflooey, too. No more B
and B. We'll be swallowed
up by the big, bad, bland
Yankees. We won't even
have a page of our own in
Time anymore."
"We've still got John
Diefenbaker, ain't we?" he
growled. "And ain't that
enough?"
• •      •
"Dognab it, Fred," I said.
"Be serious. This country
is falling apart at the seams.
Quebec is the most important, wonderful single thing
in the whole world, and
we've just got to get it
back."
"Who gives a bone," he
said, and launched a full-
scale attack on the flea.
"Besides," he continued,
"what has Quebec ever done
for me, the average British
Columbia dog? Hey?"
"But Fred. You can't ask
questions like that. You
just can't. Quebec's just
good, that's all. You can't
question goodness, can
you?"
"Catnip!" said Fred. "The
frogs have been the flea in
the fur for 100 years, if
you'll pardon the expression.
"Everything's gotta be
tailored just for them, or
they bawl. Twenty-five per
cent of the people, 50 per
cent of the say. It costs millions to print instructions
on my dog biscuit boxes in
a foreign language. Doesn't
make 'em taste any better.
• •      •
"And when Richard gets
a penalty, they riot 'cause
it's racial discrimination.
"Let 'em go, I say," snarled Fred. "Who cares."
"You, you Philistine!" I
said. "You're the most arrogant, cultureless Bassett I
have ever met."
"Nonsense!" he said, and
by this time he was getting
worked up. "Who needs
Quebec. For that matter,
who needs the Maritimes?
They're too poor to be any
good to anybody."
"Ontario," he burbled,
froth forming on his lips.
"Who cares. They think
they're the cat's pyjamas.
Without the Canadiens, who
needs the Leafs?"
He was chortling now.
"The Prairies — HA! A
frozen wasteland in winter
and a dustbowl in summer.
What do we want with
them?
"We've got everything
right here in Beautiful
B.C."
Fred was becoming unbearable. Aside from his
black nose, you couldn't
tell the difference between
him and Premier Bennett.
• •      •
"M ountains. Trees.
Oceans. Oil. Wheat. Pulp
mills. Hardware stores.
Banks ..." he burbled.
"Who care about Canada?"
Just then there was another crash, ' much louder
than the first. It seemed
like the very ground o n
which we were sitting was
rumbling  and  shaking.
l me >
"WHO CARES, FRED?"
"It's British Columbia,"
barked Fred. "B.C.! B.C.
has seceded!"
Fred's cries were echoed
by thousands of citizens,
pouring through the streets
of the city.
• • •
• "We've seceded. We've
seceded. Long live the republic," they chorused,
waving flags with little sunsets on them, burning piles
of paper on every street-
corner, and bearing placards with the picture of a
chubby, smiling man on
them.
Just before I was trampled in the melee, I caught
a glimpse of Fred, leading
one arm of the insurgents
down Granville Street.
"Who cares," I said. "Who
cares?"

Starving India must wait tor
the big crisis before any
real solutions coming. Gap
continues to widen between what
farmers want people can pay.
By JIM WARD
"When India's problems
reach saturation point, we
may begin to solve some
of them," said a progressive
farmer, father of five.
With a population of 500
million, increasing by 10
million a year, India, one-
third the area of the U.S., is
in the grip of a food crisis.
I asked the farmer about
the crisis.
He replied: "If you can get
250 dollars for an acre of
cotton, 150 dollars for an
acre of peanuts, and only 70
or 80 dollars for the same
area of wheat or rice, what
would you grow?"
• •      •
Put the same problem to
the grain - brained prairie
farmer and, like the Indian
farmer, he would grow just
enough grain to fill the stomachs of his family and laborers.
In the food crisis, state of
Gujarat, where I am working, cotton fields stretch as
far as the eye can see. It is
the wheat season and hardly
a field of it anywhere.
• •      •
The farmer blames the
government. He wants to
know why the government is
not subsidizing Indian farmers instead o f importing
grain from the U.S., Australia, Canada, Iran, Burma
and other countries.
Some say it is cheaper for
the government to import
foods using earnings of exports like  cotton.
The government is caught
in a triangular trap between
100 million urbanites, the
farmers, and a comparatively few hoarders.
• •      •
Many city dwellers are employed now due to money
pumped into the economy by
the government to stimulate
development.
Their wages enable them
to demand more and better
quality grains.
A considerable number of
people are under-employed
and an inestimable number
are unempleyed and likely
to stay that way.
Unfortunately, the increas-

ed money supply has caused
open market prices to rise
beyond the means of many
city people. The government
is trying to counteract this
by accumulating surplus
stocks, mostly imported, and
rationing them at rates the
people can afford.
•      •      •
This action also has the
effect of depressing prices
slightly and deterring would-
be hoarders from speculating.
Still, dealers find it worth
their while to purchase spare
grain from the farmers at
nearly twice the government
price andprofit by selling it
to the many rich people not
content with their quota.
Adding to the confusion,
state governments, like provincial governments in Canada, are becoming more self-
assertive.
While   tough   in   dealings
with the central government,
they are more tactful and
attentive in their own states.
For example, some "surplus grain state" governments, fearing the unpopular consequences of rising
food prices within their own
borders, have banned or restricted the export of grain
to  "shortage states".
• •      •
While the gap between
what consumers can pay and
what farmers demand is a
primary reason for the food
shortage, imbalanced diets,
the farmer's lack of capital,
and his lack of seed, fertilizer, and know-how, all add
to the problem.
The most successful farmers are those with capital.
An ex-maharja, now an Indian M.P., has held the all-
India prize for the highest
yield of sugar cane with a
25-foot-high crop of 129 tons
per acre.
He averages 70 tons per
acre while other farmers in
his area average 20 tons per
acre.
• •      •
Without doubt India has
the capacity both in land and
technology to become self-
sufficient for food.
Whether she will do so before the urban unrest comes
to a head, remains to be
seen.

Two solutions seen tor
Rhodesians: apartheid white
government or nationalist
black government. Or seek
single-colored shores.
By SUSAN ADAMS
•f\^HO   would   trade   the
" "  peace  and  cool  of the
B.C. coast for the strife and
heat of Africa?
What ambitious young
man would leave all those
dollars in Mr. Bennett's
purse for a few hard-earned
pennies in Rhodesia?
Just such a young man I
have met.
White men, both young
and old, are leaving Rhodesia and not returning. They
are leaving either because
they are losing money, or
because they are dissatisfied
with the political situation.
Briefly the situation is
this:
A reactionary white government rules over a quarter million whites and 3.5
million Negroes.
At the end of 1963 th
Federation of Rhodesia an
Nyasaland was dissolved; at
the same time occurred the
death of gradual multi-
racialism.
Many whites Rhodesians
now see only two solutions
to Rhodesia's dilemma: A
white government employing apartheid - like policies
as in South Africa; or a
black nationalist government.
•      •      •
i
If Rhodesians do not like
these two possible futures
they must seek other shores.
The uncertainty of the future may well affect the
economy.  Inflow  of capital
and value of property may
well decrease.
So there is much to dis-
courage our young man
from returning to his native
land. For seven years he
has lived in Canada, watching B.C. forests, watching
Indian children learn in
school and watching Vancouver's rain.
The young man most vigorously denies he is returning to Rhodesia to find himself a wife. I was naturally
shocked at this unusual attitude and so persuaded him
to give me his reasons for
leaving Canada.
Here they are:
"Although my skin is
white," he said, "I am going back because I feel I
will be able to weather
Rhodesia's threatening
storm.
•      •      •
"You see my father has a
tobacco farm out there for
me and I will become a farmer.
"I realize Rhodesia's political position is precarious
and I also realize a farmer
may suffer economically in
such a situation.
"The present white government in Rhodesia is going to be ousted by the rise
of black nationalism in, say,
two to five years. I hope
that this transition from a
white to a black government
will not be too bloody.
"Perhaps a parallel might
be drawn with Kenya. Here
white farmers and industrialists who didn't wish to
—Ji£lJ
live in a black African
state ruled by black Africans had to leave.
"Those who stayed adjusted and some took an
active part in creating a
new nation.
"Rhodesia must, and will
have a black government,
therefore as a Rhodesian I
am fully prepared to live
under such a government.
"I hope to a adapt myself
in a sensible manner and
thus become an accepted
member of the new community. In this way I will
survive the Rhodesian
storm, and once Rhodesia's
political future has been
settled, I trust my farm will
prosper.
•      •      •
"I long to see Rhodesia's
face again," he continued
earnestly, "and this is really
why I am returning.
"I have never been able
to thrust my roots into Canadian soil and, after all,
Rhodesia is my home."

well,   in   fact,   but   it's   not

Basically it's just too
short. Some of the general
interest shots that would
have filled out a somewhat
stark framework couldn't'
be used because of lack of
space. So many events were
covered that a rigid selection had to be enforced.
Those that were covered
resulted in some first rate
journalism. Frosh Retreat,
Leadership, Home coming,
Mardi Gras Festival, and
Stunts are some examples
of well covered events.
People will undoubtedly
debate whether or not

Ill's appearance should
have been spread across

should. On the whole, the
photography is good — selective  and consistent.
The copy is somewhat inconsistent and slips below
the level of the photography.
There is far more factual coverage than in the
past, but it's often too dry.
Similarly, the eight page insert "Prospectus 65" is informative and timely, although a little on the quiet
side.
The cover is wild and
sets the visual tone of the
book. (That's a value judgment — see it for yourself
to see what is meant.) The
textured introductions, however, don't work nearly so
well. The problem is that
some things have been sacrificed to overall continuity.
On the whole, it works,

time in history (recorded
history, that is).

curred to him that the Federal Narcotics Act is unjust,
that it is an instrument for
the policing of private concerns just like that chief
Glory of Protestant Civilization, our "blue laws". The
problem of drug addiction is
not ameliorated by laws:
indeed, the only social problems we have connected
with drug addiction are
caused by the legal status
of drugs. The laws cost
money to enforce, and they
promote crime.
One might nevertheless
argue that addiction to marijuana is a horrible personal
catastrophe. I think Mr.
Kropp would. But one
would first have to establish that marijuana is addictive, and Kropp does not.
He cites reports of marijuana users showing withdrawal symptoms. What!~
symptoms? Physical? How
severe? Worse than a middle-aged man kicking tobacco? How many cases?
What was the general health
of these users?
Kropp alludes to one opinion that marijuana is not
physically addictive (Dr.
Foulks'), and others, from
such diverse sources as U.S.
Army physicians, the New
York Academy of Medicine,
and the British Medical
Journal, The Lancet, are
also worth mentioning.
•   •    •
The argument, heavily
endorsed by Mr. Kropp, that
it is the "psychological dependence" o n marijuana
that is the most harmful aspect of its use makes no
sense at all. If the drug is
not otherwise harmful,
where lies the problem of
psychological dependence? I
might be habituated to avo-
cadoes, as Kropp is habituat-
cadoes, but it is not the state
of being habituated which is
harmful. It is the object of
the habituation which we
must concentrate on, is it
not?
Kropp goes on to tell us
what happens to marijuana
users, what sort of experiences they have. He does
not state whether or not
these are typical experiences, and he does not refer
to what he himself has seen
of the use of marijuana. He
offers his opinion on its
probable effects, but without ever claiming to have
seen such effects. He suggests that those who use the
drug "may act violently".
Do they? Not from what
I've seen.
To quote Mr. Kropp directly: "Because of the law
they meet in furtive groups
to use it. In this atmosphere
a heroin user is bound to
turn up." In all that smoke
a dope fiend is sure to materialize. Just keep rubbing
that lamp, man. See, here
he comes, smelled our
smoke all the way down on
Powell Street. Dig those
little wings on his heels.
"Some of these thrill
seekers are going to try this
new kick —herion." Have
you any evidence in support
of this supposition, Mr.
Kropp? It is not justified by
the experience of the authorities in New York or Vancouver, two cities with big
heroin problems.

A gas ot a jag
ot jazz giants
happening to
this loud town.
By DON CRAWFORD
LOTS of people have asked me lately, "What's
happened to Jazz in Vancouver", and I of course,
don't have the answer to
that, but there's this show
coming to town.
Somebody in the Vancouver press called it the jazz
show of the century, and I
don't know about that
either, since I don't guess
I'll be around long enough
to see a whole century-
worth of jazz shows; but I
do know it's going to be a
gas.
There are these people in
the show. Most of the time
people call them musicians,
but they're people all right.
As a matter of fact, you
wouldn't be too far from
wrong calling them giant
people.
First, there's the Modern
Jazz Quartet, and I think
even the non-hippies know
about them. They've been
playing their own brand of
angel music for ten years
now, and during the course
of one of their performances
anybody whose ears work
can be taken on such an intricate musical trip that all
this racing to get to outer
space seems entirely unnecessary.
Then, there's the Gerry
Mulligan Quartet, featuring
Bob Brookmeyer. I always
used to wonder how a guy
who seemed to be as skinny
as Mulligan looked could
hold up that big baritone
saxophone, but that was
years ago, and he's done
more than just hold it up.
He's become the great poll
winner. Duke Ellington has
called him "immensely talented", George Shearing
called him "a genius", and I
call him a "gas"! Gerry and
Bob Brookmeyer go together just like white and rice.
Last, but no means least,
(as the cliche goes) there's
the Vince Guaraldi Quartet
featuring B o 1 a Sete. Up
there a couple of lines I said
that Mulligan and Brookmeyer go together like
white and rice, and to con-
tinue the gastronomical
me t a p h o r , Guaraldi and
Sete go together like Rum
and Coke. We can thank
Dizzy Gillespie for that.
It was Diz who pushed
Sete out on the stage of jazz
and brought him and Guaraldi (who was already pretty well known because of
his hit recording of "Cast
Your Fate To The Wind")
together.
Diz had met Bola Sete in
Brazil in the late fifties, and
when, in .1962, Diz discovered him working in the
Sheraton - Palace Hotel in
San Francisco, nothing
would satisfy Diz but to
have Bola play with him.
They did a concert, a record
date, and when the Monterey Jazz Festival rolled up
Diz told the manager of it
that he had to have Sete on
the program.
That September afternoon Sete came on the stage
and knocked everybody
right out, including Guaraldi, who was the pianist.
After that, the two of them
played together a lot, and
have found a beautiful
ground for Brazilian music
and American Jazz. I think
we call it bossa nova or
something, but Guaraldi, listening to the tapes of their
first album together, said it
better: "I think that's background music to life!"
So that's what happened
to jazz in Vancouver, I
guess. It's on the way here.
See, there's this show coming to town March 14th at
8 p.m. in the QE and I
really wish everybody
would go, because this
friend of mine who's bringing the show to town will
lose a hell of a lot of money
if they don't.

Soft satire

Satirists in the film business come and go tout there
are few as convincing as
Luis Bunuel. Hollywood's
sloppy social commentator,
Stanley Kramer, is bold and
frank about subjects which
are acceptable to the North
American public. The pentagon may frown on films like
On the Beach but it would
only be a token frown. After
all, isn't everyone worried
about the bomb, at least to
the socially acceptable extent—"Yes, it is a problem,
but I never go on those
marches." The North American rebels are not revolutionary to the point of being
unaccepted and few are in
real danger to the authorities.

see On the Beach but does
it really bother us? Or do
we sniffle because poor Ava
Gardner will not see her
Gregory Peck again as he
sails valiantly into the sunset?
Bunuel's revolt against
authority is clear, incisive
and totally convincing. If he
had stayed in Spain after the
making of Viridiana he
would probably face imprisonment—or at least exile.
Why they let him film Viridiana in Spain is almost beyond comprehension. Surely
the man that made Land
Without Bread, a bitter attack on the church among
other things, could possibly
change  his attitudes.
In Viridiana, Bunuel again
slashes about with little con
cern for anybody—the beggars, the church. Everyone
and everything is shown in
the worst possible light. The
look on the Mother Superior's face is frightening when
Viridiana refuses to come
back; the poor beggars are
sickingly perverse and villainous; the orgy against the
background of the Hallelujah Chorus disgusts; the picture of the Last Supper blasphemes.
One must react to Viridiana to either accept or reject Banuel's statement. It is
impossible to go away from
a Bunuel film without somehow being moved; one can
always go home from a
Kramer film and sleep like
a baby because Kramer
doesn't dare go far enough
to bother people.
The symbolism in the film
is interesting and pertinent,
unlike the Christ symbols
in Knife in the Water—just
little jokes of Polanski's.
Bunuel uses the Last Supper to parody the church—
and to top it the beggar-slut
"shoots" the picture with her
genitals. The famous symbol
is the burning of the crown
of thorns—as Bunuel gets in
an extra kick at the church.
Lord Jim jams
out on the talk
network — but an
enjoyable thing.
By  GRAHAM  OLNEY
When sound first came to
movies, the old line director's complaint was "all
tlak, all nothing". The same
complaint can be made
about another talkie, Lord
Jim. The stress is on dialogue and, when this happens in a movie, problems
immediately arise. To overcome the difficulty imposed
by this stress on dialogue,
the script has to be good—
damn good. An all talk
movie needs a Pinter to
write the script but, when
the scenario is adapted from
a Conrad book the writer
naturally falls into the set
trap. Why bother with all
the work needed to clean
up Conrad? Hell. Write it
straight. And write it
straight they did. Few films
have ever suffered as horribly from honest adaptation as does Lord Jim.
Lord Jim is essentially
second chance for man
theme. Jim, a "born leader",
sins by deserting his ship
with 800 Moslems aboard.
He spends the rest of his
life trying to atone for this
sin. To rub it in, Lord Jim
(Peter O'Toole) goes off and
philosophizes every once in
a while and, if this isn't
enough, Brooks throws in a
flashback or two to show
Jim's torment — the flashbacks are pretty clumsy at
that. O'Toole does his best
for the part — twitching,
grimacing, yelling, moping
off in the corner like an old
ham of the silent serene.
Yet, if it wasn't for O'Toole
the film would fall as surely as a new bride's chocolate cake.

Brock collection contains all
varieties of Canadian art —
it's the second largest
university collection in
Canada, certainly the best.
By M. J. A. C.
13 IGHT now the liveliest
**■ two rooms in the Van-
couver Art Gallery are
showing our Brock Hall
Collection of 34 Canadian
paintings.
When Brock Hall opened
in 1940 Professor Hunter
Lewis encouraged the Student Council to begin a collection of paintings.
The graduating class of
1948 donated the first picture Abandoned Village, by
E. J. Hughes. Works of art
are now purchased by a six-
man Committee with the
help of B. C. Binning and
Alvin Balkind. Each student gives ten cents a year
through his Alma Mater
Society fees for the purchase of Canadian art.
•      •      •
In 1958 Maclean's Magazine gave Brock Hall nine
paintings done by B. C.
artists who were commissioned to paint an artistically representative aspect of
their home province.
This gift formed a nucleus of high quality work
for our collection. The individualism of each artist is
evident.
The May issue of Macleans, 1958, quotes a few
ideas the artists have about
their own work. B. C. Bin-
ing's Centennial Regatta,
"expresses the joyous feeling a I have about Vancouver in summer. It's a sort
of seaside celebration of the
Centennial."
For Joe Plaskett, a son
of old New Westminster
residents, the choice is "a

Sapperton, overlooking
where the river widens before flowing by New Westminster. For me the Fraser
is a symbol of the history
"Here is the life and death
and life of B.C.
of the people — the graves
of the sappers who built
New Westminster and, in
the mills and b o o mi i n g
grounds, the commerce and
industry of today."
Mountain Spirit, shows
Lawren Harris' feeling that
the mysticism of the neighboring Orient has made its
influence felt in coastal art.
"The mountains are aloof,
austere, detached, with
their own life above the
timber line. Yet they supply the wooded slopes and
valleys, the farmlands and
cities with the water of
life."
Jack Shadbolt's Presences
In A Thicket, painted on
the French Riviera reveals
his nostalgic "memory
mood of the woods at the
swamp edge with the white
owls watching the intruder,
myself, as I pick my way
back into their green
world."
Gordon Smith's painting
"suggests the tangled
growth where the Fraser
River enters the ocean",
and John Korner's Favorite Harbor — grew from
sketches made in Stanley
Park as he looked across at
Vancouver harbor.
•     •     •
Bruno Bobak's clever line
drawing with delicate over-
washes shows the hot arid
desert near Kamloops and
Ashcroft.
"It is charged with history; a country of overland
explorers and gold-hungry
adventurers. One day this
desert will become a rich
agricultural belt. It needs
only water."
Molly Bobak painted fish-
boats moored at the mouth
of the Fraser because "fishing is an important part of
our economy as well as so
much a part of our coast
landscape."
In addition to Lawren
Harris, the Group of Seven
is represented by Arthur
Lismer and A. Y. Jackson.
Ghitta Caiserman's First
Steps presents an interesting time-space arrangement, suggesting a progression to infinity. There is an
overhead diffused type of
lighting which casts shadows directly beneath objects and an enigmatic reflection in a mirror.
•     •     •
The collages of Toni On-
ley, Roy Kiyooka, and Harold Town are made from
familiar materials composed in a new order. Waxed
paper, paint, canvas, Kleenex, brown sticky-paper, and
glue are all arranged according to traditional principles of design, color harmony, and balance. The
usual association of the ma
terial is overlooked. The
aim is to achieve a new
effect.
In The Island, Jacques de
Tonnancour has painted a
fascinating study in light
dark variations, using
greens applied with a very
large brush showing an amazing control.
Another part of the Brock
Hall Collection is non-objective expressionist art. It
is an art form dealing not
with any recognizable subject, but with the actual
qualities of paint and with
psychological effects created by certain colors or
textures placed one beside
the other. Paint is dragged
across the canvas to suggest
movement.
• •      •
The whole canvas takes
on a dynamic push and pull
quality. There are advanc-
' ing and receding warm and
cool colors. The forces acting between planes, the interaction between opaque
or transparent paint, and
the interest in varieties of
surface texture and finish
reveal what is perhaps the
most painterly kind of
painting. The artist shows
ways of manipulating paint
in a meaningful way.
Robert Varvarande's
Green Still Life, Dennis
Burton's Radiation Crop I,
and Graham Caughtry's
Portrait No. 8 exhibit this
expressionist   type  of   art.
• •      •
Most refreshing is Takao
Tanabe's Landscape of an
Interior Place. It is representative of the North American expression centering
around New York, with
Hans Hoffman's reappraisal
of Cezanne's slipped planes
and interacting color areas.
Donald Jarvis' Blue Core
in dark textured paint suggests vague shapes with
color. There is a reflection
upon the great natural
forces found in life, either
gathering around, or emanating from the central figure.
The drip method seen in
The Red Shawl by Jack
Markel requires a close
look. The underpainting of
dried pools of paint may
have suggested the form of
the figure with the shawl
painted over it.
There is "Op" art too.
Greens and whites loom up
from the underpainting in
William Ronald's yellow
picture, Sun.
The huge divided egg
shape of Arthur McKay's
picture Tension seems filled
with cross sections of
nerves.

Recollection   of   Perfume,
by Herbert Gilbert invites
the observer to conjure up
his own favorite exotic perfume as suggested by the
crisp red taffeta-like surface forming tropical
blooms shown off against
green leaves.
The scented atmosphere
surrounds one on a synes-
thetic level, transferring
the sensation to evoke a
subjective  response.
The sensitive arrangement and good lighting at
the Vancouver Art Gallery
show off UBC's art to advantage.
It is to be hoped that our
pictures will have equally
fine provisions made for
them when they are moved
to the new Student Union
Building. *

Old and new
composers: and
the audience
discernes not.
By   JEAN   ETHRIDGE
CONTEMPORARY music seems to be rarely
played in this day and age.
In Beethoven's day, contemporary music was the
vogue, and people delighted
in hearing the latest work
of a composer.
Old works were occasionally performed, but were
not considered as exciting
as new ones. Perhaps the
reason for the change in
music appreciation is in the
change in the audience.
Beethoven was the last of
the musicians supported by
the royal patronage system.
His audience was small,
consisting of the elite upper class. Today, music is
supported financially by the
people, en masse.
The general listener
seems to prefer the realm
of the known, requesting to
hear pieces he has heard
before.
He is reticent about striking out on new ground and
trying to appreciate something new.
How, then, can new music be introduced, if audiences wish to remain in a
repertoire  rut?
The only way is gingerly
to introduce a contemporary work, or two, padded
on all sides by the old classics, hoping not to upset the
audience to a point where
they will not return to another concert.
This is what the Vancouver Symphony did last Monday evening. They played
two contemporary works,
along with those by Beethoven, Mozart, and Strauss;
Concerto for Woodwinds,
Harp and Orchestra, written in 1949, by Paul Hinde-
mith, and Symphonic Fantasy: Kaleidoscope (1948),
by Mercure, a French Canadian.
Hindemith, who died a
year and a half ago, has
already established himself
as an important composer
of the 20th century, yet I
wonder how miany concert
goers have heard of him.
Why is it that audiences
groan when they see something on the program by
someone they haven't heard
of, or worse yet written in
the 20th century?
The audience of today is
settling into a seat of complacency; they wish to be
entertained with no effort
on their part, and feel
slighted when required to
decide for themselves whether a new work is good or
not. y
Certainly, time ts the
greatest judge of quality,
but think what might be
missed if we pass over the
contemporary with no consideration at all of the possibilities  of greatness.
I would like to see more
20th century music performed for the general public.
However, music is supported by the masses, and,
unfortunately, the masses
are satisfied with the traditional.
the board beware the ides of march
MORE CINEMA
(continued  from  PF   5)
The ghastly tendency of
the characters to philosophize all the time has to be
overshadowed by some-
thing: the camera work is
ismple and unimaginative
(one wishes a technician
like David Lean had directed the film); the acting is
consistently hammy; the dialogue is atrocious.
So what else is there?
O'  Toole  of course.
If the audience couldn't
laugh at the film, there'd
be little in its favour. The
courteous, gentlemanly villain (Eli Wallach as the
General) strikes right to our
childhood. When he philosophizes on "Torture-Methods
and Techniques" while preparing to zap Jim with a
red hot knife, one recalls
the villain of yesteryear, always apologetic before dispatching the victim. And, if
one gentlemanly villain is
not enough for the audience,
they are offered another —
Gentleman Brown (James
Mason) — who is the scurviest, slyest, meanest, wicked-
ess bible-thumping villain
this side of Peking. .
The PR bull sheet says
Daliah Lavi (The Girl)
"suited the role from a physical and spiritual point of
view . . . Conrad described
her in "Lord Jim" as a beautiful Eurasian of fiery temperament and indomitable
will." Every adventure film
has to have a sexy wench in
it like what's-her-name in
Mutiny on the Bounty or
Cardinale. Lavi is about as
spirited as Buster Keaton
and as fiery as Brock hamburger.
I may not respect Lord
Jim but I enjoyed it. I also
enjoy James Bond novels,
but they are not necessarily good. Like candy fluff
it tempts the palate but
nourishes not the stomach.

BACKGROUND
Money, sex, turmoil
By MIKE HORSEY
Ubyssey Editor-in-Chief
It's been a rough month for
universities as profs, students
and administrations have battled each other with alarming
frequency.
Chief beefs revolve about
faculty publish-or-perish
standards, tenure, sex, more
money for profs, tuition fees,
salary for students and administrations in general.
• •    •
Staid old Yale has been
rocked by student demonstrations protesting the publish-
or-perish attitude of the University's administration when
granting faculty tenure.
(When a teacher is granted
tenure his contract runs until
retirement and he can be fired
only for moral reasons.)
More than 2,000 students
and a sprinkling of profs took
part in a demonstration outside Yale's Woolsey Hall protesting a report from the Yale
Tenure Committee denying
philosophy Prof. Richard Ber-
stein tenure.
• •   •
Demonstrators    said    they
objected to judging faculty
members on the basis of the
quantity of their published
papers instead of the quality
of their teaching.
Berstein has published
one book, has a second ready
for publication, and is working on a third.
Berstein's department recommended him for tenure
after only one term at the
university in 1962, but he was
given an assistant professorship without tenure.
• •   •
The tenure committee will
re-open its investigation of
the Berstein case but students
say there is little hope of getting a reversal of the decision.
And in sunny California
everything isn't so sunny.
Sex has resulted in the resignation of three women
deans at Stanford University.
A   controversy   erupted   in
early February when the
Stanford Daily quoted Dean
of Women Lucile Allen as saying some English professors
had been concentrating on the
erotic aspects of English in
order to seduce Stanford
women.
Dean Allen denied making
the remarks but resigned anyway.
Subsequently Associate
Dean Bonnie Pitswater and
Assistant Dean Elizabeth Avery resigned over the handling of the matter.
Dean Allen was given terminal leave, but a university
investigating committee said
it found no basis for the remarks attributed to the Dean.
The committee's 16-page report, however, was not released.
• •   •
The Education Society at
Newfoundland's M e m o r ial
University has presented a
brief to the provincial government pleading for higher
wages for professors.
The brief claimed that
Newfoundland is losing more
than its share of university
profs to other parts of Canada.
The brief said some teachers must start as low as $270
a month.
The government didn't answer the request, but earlier
this week said all first year
students in Newfoundland
would be permitted to have
their first year of education
free.
• •   •
In France students petitioned the government to pay salaries to university students.
Students want $90 a month
to defray living costs.
A debate is expected in the
National Assembly this spring
when a Socialist-sponsored
bill will be presented.
The National Union of Students said the costs of the
system would amount to $345
million a year.
Official reaction so far has
been cool.

East of the Canadian Rockies students at Manitoba have

hike at their university without result.
Students at the University
of Toronto have proposed that
fees at the U of T, $515 now,
be increased 150 per cent and
$1,500 government grants
given to students as a means
of meeting rising costs.
In addition the brief proposed $1.50 matching grants
for every dollar students earn
during the summer to a maximum of $1,500.

McGeer blasts
UBC inferiority complex
By JACK McQUARRIE
It must be  the  weather!
First it was the D and D
report. Now it's the McGeer
report, concerning athletics
not academics, yet just as
revolutionary as the former.
• •   •
MLA Dr. Pat McGeer, Wednesday night at the Big Block
Banquet, gave a lengthy exhortation urging the implementation of athletic scholarships at UBC.
Dr. McGeer, a former UBC
athlete, claimed that the
scholarship program could be
established at UBC through
private donations. He stressed, however, the necessity of
university support.
• •    •
Most of the aforementioned
has been spouted numerous
times before by various personages. SFU's Dr. Gordon
Shrum must be credited with
supplying the spark that set
fire to most of the verbiage
by propounding extensive aid
for his athletes on the other
side of town.
What makes Dr. McGeer's
advocation unique is that it
pushes for the recruiting of
U.S. talent. "We recruit faculty from the U.S.," he said,
Sports roundup
Hayes named top athlete
The pride of UBC rugby, Dick Hayes, was awarded the
Bobby Gaul Memorial Trophy as the outstanding athlete
at UBC at the Big Block Club Awards banquet.
The trophy is bestowed annually upon the graduating
student who best exhibits qualities of sportsmanship and
team leadership, together with
athletic ability. Academic
achievement is also a factor in
the selection.
Hayes is president of the
Law Students' Association and
graduates from Law school
this year.
As a rugby player the 220-
pound mountain of muscle
plays second row and leads the
scrum forwards into battle.
He captained the Thunderbirds and has proven to be an
excellent rugby strategist.
(During the game the captain,
and not the coach, dictates the
plan of attack.)
Hayes, unfortunately, will
watch Saturday's McKechnie
Cup final from the sidelines.
He tore ligaments in his foot
in a practise game just before
the World Cup series.
Said Hayes of the award:
"I'm really surprised and honoured. I'm just sorry I can't go
out and do something on the
field after the award."
BASKETBALL
Everyone is on the ball this
weekend.
Over in the Women's Gym,
the B.C. High School Girls Basketball goes, continuing today
and tomorrow. The twelve
teams in the tournament—
Churchill, John Olive, MEI,
Oak Bay, Vic High, QE, Kamloops, Trail, Cranbrook, Salmon Arm, Terrace and Ft. St.
John—represent eight zones
and have been divided into
three sections. Each team plays
a round robin in its section.
The top two teams in each
section advance to the double
knockout finals beginning Friday noon and finishing Saturday night at 8:30, when the
championship game will start.
GOLF
Friday, March 19! That is
the date for the "Thomson 2nd
annual golf classic".
The Big Block Club event
gets under way Friday morning at the University golf
course with the entry fee an
under par $1.25.
The classic is open to all
students and faculty members
and there is no golfing experience necessary. Prizes will be
given for all categories: low
gross, low net, best dressed
golfer, etc.
There will be 19th hole refreshments for avid golfers at
the Delta Upsilon Fraternity
house.
Tickets for the tournament
can be obtained in the Athletic
Office or from Tom Thomson,
the classic host.
MAA MEETING
The annual general meeting
of the UBC Men's Athletic Association will be held Tuesday

Davies named
SFA director
Lome Davies, UBC physical education instructor and
football line coach for the
past four years, was last
night proclaimed the athletic
director for Simon Fraser
Academy.
Davies, known to his players as "Joe" gained a reputation in his years at UBC
for being a taskmaster but
in the process fashioned one
of the most effective lines in
UBC football history.

"Why not athletes?" He went
on to say that B.C. high
schools were not yet strong
enough to support a program
which would prove successful
against top-flight American
schools.
SPORTS
Dr. McGeer branded as fallacy the popular and disparaging claims against athletic
scholarships. One was the belief that the scholarships tended to lower a school's academic standards.
"It is not the case with the
Ivy league colleges or the
West Coast schools and it
won't be the case at UBC."
Campus reaction to the
speech borders on the sceptical. Athletic director Bus Phillips termed Dr. McGeer's
statement "unrealistic". "Basics must be considered first,"
said Phillips, "The UBC Senate would first have to consider things like lowering admission standards in order to
bring in the American athletes; the big step of course
would first be the approval
of athletic scholarships."
Frank Gnup's reaction can
be summed up in one word
(politely)—f o o e y . And he
wasn't spitting out his cigar.
"Where are these donations
going to come from," said
Gnup, "Where have these
donors been in the past?"
In a phone call to the Ubyssey late Thursday afternoon,
Dr. McGeer blasted "the Canadian inferiority complex and
the unwillingness to think big,
as evident in UBC's approach
to athletics.
"It takes a change in attitude to implement something
like this," he said, "We'll never get anywhere by sitting
back and listing the reasons
why it can't be done."

absolutely delicious!
Two things about Pimm's: easy to serve,
and a taste you'll enjoy. Just pour into a
tall glass and add ice and fill up with your
favourite light mix. You can add a slice of
cucumber, a piece of lemon, or a sprig of
mint to make the traditional Pimm's, famous throughout the world. But don't
bother unless you're in the mood. A new
generation is rediscovering Pimm's... and
enjoying every moment of it.

McKechnie Cup
at stake Saturday
Rugby Thunderbirds play in the McKechnie Cup final
Saturday 2:30 in Varsity Stadium, and the game is shaping
up to be one of the most exciting matches of the year.
UBC coach Brian Wightman, I
seven  times   English   Interna
tional player, and Vancouver
Reps' coach, Buzz Moore, local
rugby great and former perennial B.C. All-Star, who is UBC
assistant athletic director, will
match wits in the contest. Both
coaches have excellent teams
to demonstrate their strategy.
• •   •
The T-Birds are the best
UBC representative side in
years; while Vancouver Reps'
are comprised mostly of players from the powerful Mera-
lomas and Kats, plus others
from Vancouver Rowing Club,
Ex-Brits, and Georgians.
• •   •
The Reps have such "name"
players as Tim Cummings,
Gerry Lorenz, and Tom Christie playing for them as well as
many other established stars.
The youthful 'Birds will rely
on superior conditioning and
speed to penetrate the formidable Vancouver Reps' defence,
particularly in the second half.
